Chronicles of Reilukerho Ptolus campaign: La Grande Finale

After about five years of playing, my 4E Ptolus campaign has reached it's finale. This post has SPOILERS so if you're playing in a Ptolus campaign, or are going to, you better not read this post. The campaign has a lot of elements from the book, but also many elements created by myself.

The final session I had initially planned to run on one night become one 6-hour session and one 10-hour session. This last 10-hour session had just 3 combats, and while it had also good amount of non-combat playing, combats were really long, even if a lot of the opponents were minions.

Chronicles of Reilukerho Ptolus campaign: Rosegate house

Into the cellar

Warning, Spoilers to Ptolus players!

Heroes have been going adventuring while the workers they've hired are starting to build basement to the house. To everyone's surprise, the building seems to actually have a basement - the workers hit solid built stone and couldn't advance more. After a bit of searching, the heroes found a secret door that leads to the basement.

Gaming terrain: Ancient cemetery

Graves, crypts, creepy trees and statues

A classic theme in fantasy games, this cemetery terrain has gained some inspiration from Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Montmartre cemetery in Paris. These terrains have often seen use in rpg's, and they really bring atmosphere.

Miniatures for Sword & Sorcery: Part 6 - War elephants, wagons and chariots

War elephant and chariots

Traditionally, most fantasy miniatures represent warriors, wizards and other combatant or adventurous types, and even then only people. This leaves many of us gamemasters want more miniatures, both for scenes taking place in the middle of crowds or where larger, more exotic weapons are used in combat. There are some such items various manufacturers are producing, but mostly they are metal miniatures, and many prepainted miniature collectors want to stay away from those metal ones.
