As the day continued, the crew of the Fortune had to stop their boat as they came to a large steel gate that crossed the length of the Black River. Unable to get around it, the party had no choice but to set out to the two large towers on either side that would contain the mechanisms for drawing the gate open.
Charmer and Tiberius took it upon themselves to climb into one of the Fortune’s dinghies and row to the northern bank. The self-proclaimed expert rogue carefully inspected the area for any traps laid by Alexia or her lunkies, but nothing was found. Tiberius, however, found one that Charmer overlooked while opening the door. Fortunately, Charmer had a potion to counteract the poison, so they ventured in.
The inside of the tower was covered in guano. Looking up, razorbats were perched on the ceiling. Tiberius and Charmer had to move quickly to fight them off.

So, I’ve started running a campaign again. Actually, it is continued from one I ran about a year and a half ago. I have a trilogy module I’m very fond of, “The Witchfire Trilogy,” that I use as the basis of all my adventures. My idea is to go ahead and run the trilogy, modified for my purposes, and then allow everything to run from that city.
We’re starting on book two, since two of the players played the first one with me before. Ogrecave.com says about the first book:
The adventure starts with the players getting sucked into the investigation of a series of grave robberies and eventually discovering a plot for revenge relating to nasty events of a decade earlier. The plot is nicely layered, with villains manipulating villains and NPCs driven by complex motivations. Most of these details will not be revealed until later in the trilogy, but it is clear from the start that players experiencing these adventures will be treated to some genuinely interesting twists and turns.

Although lack of sleep is the prominent issue at the moment, this weekend was a lot of fun.
Friday night was me and Ken and Edna staying up late to clean the house so that we could have guests over. We had some music playing, and everyone worked together. We got a whole lot accomplished, and were rather proud of ourselves. I got to bed at 4 A.M.
Waking up at 10 A.M. (which, for me, six hours is not good for sleep ), I headed out to New Jersey to pick up my two youngest brothers, who were hanging out with me for the day. Back in Pennsylvania, we gamed for a while until it was time for the Ravens-Titans game. We broke out all the snacks, and our friends showed up. Jacob and Johanna came, and so did Edwin, along with a friend of his who I thought was pretty awesome and got on well with everyone there.
