Between the time when the oceans drank Atlantis and the rise of the sons of Aryas, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Fumblemore, destined to read the fabled book of Karma Soupa upon a sweaty brow. It is I, his chronicler, who alone can tell thee of his saga. Let me tell you of the days of high adventure!

With only his lowly apprentice, Pierre the Dangerous, as his follower. The Great Soothsayer Fumblemore required some much needed muscle before heading into the cold ruins of that cursed city!
He would summon the greatest warriors in the land: stout, bitter and pale!
From atop of his new sanctuary, he watches as three bands of such fine stock appear,
Of coarse he knew they would come ....he had promised them free beer!

@spafe Stormrider is thirst to break down the door! He is met with the sight of @Stoof foul-fart and welcomed by a crossbow bolt from Ivan ‘the drunken brawler @Draconic

Confident in the Stormriders abilities, @Punktaku Scarscrag heads off the other groups advance. @Ardavion Agro-arm braces himself for the charge, with @Kommissar Shriken the Barbarian urging him forward!

From nowhere, @radulykan Wolfheart leaps over Scarscrag and in a fabulous show of athleticism, sweeps them with his spear!

His display is short lived however as Shriken and Agro-arm body slam him to the ground and use the momentum to deftly put Punktaku the thug down!

With a bolt sticking out of his chest, the treasure hunter Stormrider bawls into the brewery! He is met and dispatched by @sump dweller the clumsy, and the foul farted!

Wary of the Drunken Brawlers bolts, Agro-arm and the Barbarian take cover as @MedMos Thundershaft lets loose an arrow through the window!
Stoof lets off and charges the corner of the ruins!

Things get vicious as the combatants all enter the fray! Thundershaft is too reluctant to fire into combat but the tension breaks when Stoof’s gas runs empty!
Ivan Draco completely ignores what is happening outside as he finds himself in a room full of free beer, and Clumsy Sump succumbs to the three on one situation!

Fumblemore claps his hand and declares Shriken, Ardavion and medmos as the first to get their free ale!
He claps again and beer tankards come to life, each taking a wee dram to the wounded, recovering them fully!
And, as per instruction, the Apprentice Pierre goes to pull the first Ale only to find the keg is already empty....and a full looking, beer soaked, crossbowman fast asleep behind the bar!
Fumblemore claps his hand once more....

Only just discovered this thread! Shame on me!

I cannot unsee what I have seen. Woe unto thee, O Camera Angle, that thou shouldst weigh so heavily upon mine eye! Lo! Doth not that Scarscrag, in yon light, look to thee unto the blighted hairline of a Troll? Doth not that torch, placèd so, look like unto a shock of bright orange hair upon his pate? Woe! Woe that a sight once seen cannot be un-seen! Let us drown that brain-cell as does hold that memory in free ale....

This is too funny to be true, but...

....we are looking for one last yak to complete our company
.... a thief no less!

and the sign on your hobbit hole says you are the yak we are looking for @Aulenback!

*the wizard fumblemore hands over a badly handwritten contract, signed by all the drunkards of fumble company*
*they break into song*

Far over the foamy beers cold
To flagons deep and tankards old
We must away ere break of day
To find our long-forgotten gold

*fumblemore, abit unnerved by the grinning skull face, picks up a horned helm from a nearby armour stand and gently places it on a boney head*
......🤔....🤨.....
*he also gives him a fake beard and some boots*
WALLAH!

FROSTHEIM I
part 1

The ancient ruins are deadly quiet, the gaze of the great yak surveys the battlefield to be!

The Elementalist Dragar and his apprentice Alatar are the first to venture into maze of stone.

Already lurking in the damp dark places, the Dark Sigilist Nadir is spotted in the distance.

Battling magical pillars, Nadirs apprentice Nizar and the rest of the dark force fight off the troublesome Elementalist

Part 2 (enter Fumblemore)

Treasure has been rumoured to be at an undisturbed burial site, by Fumblemore logic, he needs beer money more than the dead do!

The sooth sayer and his apprentice Pierre Le Dangereux rally up all those sober enough to fight

The Archer Medmos spots restless dead as well as the wizard Dragars warband headed their way

Fumblemores crew get ready to rush in

Medmos Thundershaft deftly takes a skeleton with his opening shot

Spafe Stormrider gets stuck in and tackles two undead without even breaking a sweat

in a distant street a howl and a roar can be heard
4E1BB4C6-B7B2-4654-8FB0-78646161E087.jpeg


Shriken Ironhead the Barbarian holds back the ever growing skeletal hoard, he goes berserk and takes down two before having to flee

With Elemental Walls blocking their path, the sooth saying party got most of the action but least of the treasure. With only a long distance arrow fired by Thundershaft at the Elementalist apprentice, conflict between the warbands was minimal.

Part 3 (dimension disaster)

maybe graverobbing was a bit ambitious for a first time adventurer, so what’s the quickest easiest magical method of transport? The dimensional portal network doted around the city of coarse!
E718CFD3-DDEE-4EBC-9C70-C662305D88AE.jpeg


But with dark methods, comes dark torment! The dark wizard Nadir is already exploring the forbidden holes.

battle is met as Fumblemores men are shocked at the sudden arrivals! A dark knight is mind controlled and the left treasure is grabbed in the the confusion.

after a swift melee and some decisive spell casting from Nadir, the dark sigilist makes off with a windfall haul!

Despite his over abundance of awareness, Fumblemore heads back to The Wizards Sleeve to rest his men and top up on courage.
he sells His potions and scrapes enough gold to buy himself a flashy staff of power!

Shocked! Shocked I say! That those drunkards over there shooting at us should suddenly turn up over here, shooting at us!

Hmm. Would have thought we’d all do really WELL at Grave-robbing, and all. “Burke & Hare’s, Resurrectionists to the gentry, no trouble too deep.” Still. Beer! And boots!
