[size=150]The Running of the Wraiths[/size]
Our first module of 2008 and a success. It should be noted that there was a smallish turnout and we had just enough players for the game. This is because some people instead of “Running with the Wraiths” decided to attend a lesser sport called ‘Tilting’ or '‘Jousting’ at some place called Taupo, which due an unfortunate timing error on their part, corresponded with our more famous event.
The party had to try a series of lesser events to see who would be the first at the Wraiths. These included capturing a Quickling, Defeatiig a Champion, Finding the Holy Grail and so on. With the exception of a Holy Grail Salesman who decided to rewrite his own script several times the module went well and players discovered how to solve the Grail salesman ‘problem’.
Erwyn, an honest cleric of Phuque, was granted first attempt at the wraith. The contestants, by dint of intelligence and skill, and not being allowed to use magic or magical weapons had to return part of the wraith to the King’s Represenative. Of course as one is well aware, wraiths can only be harmed by magic so the party could do no harm to the wraith whatsoever. Of course the wraith was under no compunctions about not harming the adventurers, one of whom was rendered unconcious at least 3 times during the running.
Our brave and fearless cleric Erwyn was the first to return with a token of fighting the wraith, and because of his bravery and fearlessness, he did not rest on his laurels, rather he entered the fray yet again. Not only was he the first person to succesfully run with the wraith, he was also the second person. And he also did some healing while in the combat. The King is therefore trebly impressed with Erwyn and will see that the cleric is suitably rewarded.
OOC - Small but sufficient turn up. 2 new players whom we hope to see again. No injuries. A good time was had by all. Thanks to those who attended.
