This was supposed to be my Campaign log...|
I ran what should have been my first RttToEE adventure last weekend. Sadly, the session did not go well and we never got to the adventure proper.
Basically I had a party of 4 drow, an imp, and a barghest lead by a cleric of Lloth. My adventure hook was that the priestess had been sent to destroy any drow heretics involved with other dieties - as from ToEE and the Giants series. (now I've never read or run any of those modules, so all this was based on clues within RttToEE.) In particular, they were seeking any members of clan Eilserv (sp?). From here they would learn of the cult of Tharizdun and presumably oppose it - mostly because Lloth does not want the world sucked into oblivion. And, of course, the drow ambassadors from Eilserv clan are in the Outer Fane, so that is pretty freakin deep in the module I figured. I added more Eilserv drow to other areas to maintain interest. Also, I had repopulated Nulb with river pirates to give the party a Homlet like base where they would be able walk the streets. This taken from some help I received earlier on this board.
So when I arrived to game they wanted to add a drider to the party in place of the wizard. Of course no cleric of Lloth would ever deal with a drider. Ok, they say, we'll lose the cleric. Well, I responded, that not only costs you a cleric but also invalidates my adventure hook - that I spent all week on based on what you told me last session. Also, as much as I like Savage Species, Drider looks a little over powered to me at first reading. Anyway, this went on for a while and eventually they decided to leave the group as is. "Yeah" I say.
Well, on the underground road to Nulb, they encounted some goblins being lead by a couple low level Eilserv rogues. The drow were anticipating such a move by Lloth's clerics, and wanted to head it off at the pass - literally. They defeat this blocking party easily, and we break for lunch.
At lunch, the married couple apparently develops some issues, issues that were coming to the surface even before lunch, and leaves the table to go deal. This went on for a while, with me hangin' with another player sharing old game stories. After about 45 minutes the husband comes out and basically says they can't game anymore that day. So I packed up and left.
Hopefully some time soon I'll have a real campaign log to replace the debacle from last week.
