Welcome to our Torchbearer series! In these episodes, you’ll hear Alex, Kaetlyn, Kolton, Matt and Colin play out the events that have befallen the downtrodden adventurers in a land infested with monsters lurking in the darkness just beyond your campfires and city walls.
Our characters in these episodes were Jimmithias “Jimmy” Dwindelberger, a young and arrogant Human Magician played by Alex, Aaron Gold, a Human Warrior with a strong shield and more bravery than sense, played by Kaetlyn, Horrace San Diego a Human Cleric who lived to feel fear pound through his veins, played by Kolton, and Matt who played Nilo Steelkin, a Dwarf Adventurer who knew that the only way to end up with a diamond was to cut away the rough.
Colin, acting as GM, was supposed to bring the NPCs to life, create a brooding atmosphere, and serve up hardship in abundance to the players at every turn. He succeeded for the most part.
The adventure they play through is the one from the back of the rule book called The Inn of the Three Squires, look it up if you’re interested in comparing notes along the way.
