“The Tying of Loose Ends” (Anno 777)

This session was run literally right after Larkins and Desiree got back from attending Greg Stafford’s memorial in Berkeley, and they brought back some of the same fun, chaotic energy that always surrounded Greg. In this, our penultimate session of this campaign arc, we bounce through a wild Winter Phase and begin tying up loose ends in an abbreviated but satisfying session revolving around Bradamant’s search for decent husband material.

"It’s Time for Winter Phase!" (Anno 774)

An abbreviated session this week, owing to the Order convening its very own real-life Michaelmas feast! (See the link to our food blog below for pictures.) In the end, we had just enough time to get through Winter Phase for 774 and tease an intro for the following year’s adventure.

“Mission to Fritzlar” (Anno 774)

After a particularly juicy winter phase, we move into the year with an exorcism and a dangerous mission to Saxony—in other words, a pretty tame year for the Baldwin clan.
