Dungeons and Dragons – Curse of Innistrahd Episode 2: The Outland Valleys

Ismark Kolyanovich is a confidant man. The world was hung heavy on his strong shoulders since childhood, and many things have left him in shadows of fate and grandeur of others that he felt he had not deserved. But earning your own grandeur is a luxury to the free. And despite his stature and good looks, he is most certainly not free.

“I have faith Ireena.” he says, breaking the silence in the still and ravaged wooden room. The woman known as Ireena, deep red haired and dark skinned, stands opposing him as the sole other occupant of their once lavish quarters. “When was the last time we’ve had someone new?”

Dark eyes scowl at him in reply as she perches herself on the edge of the stripped countertop. He shakes his head, feeling the weight of the world in his tense neck. “I hope you’ll listen when they come back.” he says after what feels like hours deadlocked in stillness. “And if they don’t?” It’’s a sharp, immediate reply. Her still face and dead words fill the room as he tries to think of an answer. He doesn’t. And the day goes on, until it becomes night.

Rogue Trader – Collective Threat Episode 5

A major windfall comes for the crew of the Brilliant Resolve.  In the encounters on her SOS response, Faydra has ended up with the Irradial Cogitator known as “Dead Heat.”  She now has it back on her ship and at her mercy for questioning and buckled down to a seat in a makeshift brig.  They find that he constructed the new megaweapon for The Schismaticus Collective on commission, with no particular ties to the organization.  In asking for help on how to destroy his creation, Dead Heat suggests that it may be far less simple than Faydra hoped.

Dungeons and Dragons – Curse of Innistrahd Episode 1

Welcome to Innistrad, a plane draped in death and stubborn life. The humans that call it their home settle the lands, but as the night falls they are lost lambs among predators. In the light of the moon fierce creatures run, werewolves hiding amongst friends and family, vampires pursuing a meal with wild hedonistic abandon, and even the very dead risen from their tombs by unrest or call. And beyond them darker and stranger things lie in the deepest of shadows the valleys and forests have to offer.

But all is not hopeless. The savior of humanity lives in this world. Flying overhead with an argent radiance, The Archangel Avacyn and her flights of angels protect humanity from that which lurks and plots in the black. Under her watch the Church of Avacyn centered in the walled city of Thraben pushes for peace and protection. the Cathar soldiers dressed in silvers and whites of the church serve the radiant Lunarch, the individual chosen by the angels to lead, and work to purge evil from the land.

Though their challenges are many, trust in the angels is almost omnipresent; those symbols of faith and true belief having strength against the darkness. But the angels can’t be everywhere, or stop every injustice. And in the distant province of Stensia, the reach of the church is at it’s weakest, the craggy mountains and forever overcast sky hiding deep secrets and dangers. And so it comes to remarkable people to have the strength to change things; for better or worse.
