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.
After a year of fussin’ & feudin’, the rival Claremont and Baldwin clans assemble under the watchful eye of Charlemagne, who has brought in his lifelong friend Ganelon to work out a long-term solution for peace. But will everyone go along with the plan?
An action-packed session sees jousts, judicial combats, enchanted fountains, magical rings, enchanted weapons, tense standoffs, and earnest debates on the nature of honor and justice. Oh, and someone goes mad and runs off into the woods!
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.
We pick up where we left off last time, with a Saxon attack on the frontier village of Fritzlar imminent and help on the way from Mort. Can the rest of our heroic knights survive long enough to see the light once again?
