In the penultimate session of the campaign, the hunters learn more about the approaching great evil - and their own connections to her.
In this week's session, we wrap up the mystery started the previous week and in fact an entire arc within the game. Plus, a beach scene!
Finally, the crew can catch their breath a little and process everything that's happening. But what they discover might concern them even more.
Nightmares and visions lead to a violent confrontation in a dark forest. Occult tomes, mysterious witches, and plenty of mimosas for everyone!

Narrative After strategizing briefly, the crew heads down to meet Isaac McCormack, the corporation "fixer" who might be able to provide some additional intelligence on the Society of the Outer Realms. They walk into a fairly typical office area, with … Continue reading Gates of Despair: Session 5 Recap
This session mostly consisted of shopping and role play. I don't believe we rolled any dice at all, other than some random NPCs I generated (mostly using the SciFi Random Generator at Donjon). But they deserved a bit of shore leave, as it were, and in any case this second stretch of sessions (4-6 or … Continue reading Gates of Despair: Session 4 recap
