The Rising Cost – Part 1

September 30th, 2010
Justin Aaberg was only 15 years old. He had come out to his mother when he was 13, and while on the outside he seemed to have a great life going, on the inside he was a tormented storm. LGBT students at the Anoka-Hennepin School that Justin attended were, like is so frequently the case, easy targets as other students, and even teachers turned a blind eye. It finally got to a point where he just couldn?t handle it any more and feeling he had no where to turn to for help, he hanged himself in his room. Justin was the sixth student from the school to take his own life in the last 2 years and most are believed to have been the result of homophobic bulling.

More on Justin at WCCO including a video.

D&D Encounters Recap

Session 1

A company of couriers in the employ of Lord Markelhay of Fallcrest has found themselves held up in the small town of Duponde, where the King’s road crosses the Nentir River. Unfortunately both of the town’s bridges were damaged in recent flooding, so the group’s journey south to the city of Sarthel is on hold.

The group took lodging at the Old Owl Inn where they were treated to stories of ghosts and wizards. All seemed ordinary in the town of Duponde until nightfall. The group was awaked by a strange sensation of dread and evil. Rushing from their rooms they found Harald, the Innkeeper, lying unconscious at the foot of the stairs. The group was attacked by three stone gargoyles. After a nearly disastrous battle, the group dispatched the gargoyles and successfully roused Harald.

As Harald, Tilda, and the three dwarves (Arc, Jaren, and Davrin) began to barricade themselves into the Inn, the group headed out into the streets of Duponde to try and determine what was going on.

Session 2

As the group moved through the streets the darkness and dread circled in all around them. Their lights seemed to struggle to illuminate their path. In the distance they could hear the screams of townsfolk and through the windows they could see the frightened faces. The quickly came to realize that the entire town had become victim of a Shadowfell, and was now in the plane of shadow.

The group finally came upon Grimbold, the Marshall of Duponde, and a couple of town guards. Grimbold asked the group for help and they quickly accepted. After a quick discussion it was decided that the group would head to the Armory, which had become invested, preventing the guards from getting to their arms and armor.

Upon arriving at the armory the group found it to be invested with masses of spiders. As the group struggled to rid the armory of them, a Giant Deathjump spider jumped from the roof and attacked.

The group overcame the spiders and reclaimed the armory for the town guard.

Session 3

After clearing the armory the group heads off into the streets and quickly encounters a group of two-headed drakes about the size of large dogs and a large shadow bolter. The group overcomes the shadow creatures and are thanked by a group of townsfolk.
