With this series I’m continuing to chronicle my Dragon Age RPG conversion of the Origins storyline. This is a recap of our second session of that storyline. Unfortunately, the game was cut short due to a small fire breaking out in my bathroom (everyone is okay). Here is a link to part 1 of the series. We pick up our recap in the Korkari Wilds…
Campaign Journal 2
Having defeated the darkspawn and collected their blood, the party next wanted to see if they could find their horses. Some tracking and searching led them to the corpse of one of the horses, it seemed to have been eaten by blight wolves. The wounds were fresh enough to scare party into thinking the pack of wolves may be nearby, so they marched on deep within the Wilds. While searching for the horses, the party’s rogue spotted what looked like a small tower or ruin off in the distance, and they figured that would be as good a place as any to search.
Game bit: The horses were never meant to be found, they were spooked and for me that was the last of that. They insisted on finding them, so I indulged them in some rolling for searching. This led to high rolls and the opportunity to have them find the ruins.
They arrived at the ruins, and started searching and looking around. The Avvarian caught something from the corner of his eye, he said it looked like a pony sized spider that stopped to look at them and quickly went into the trees and out of sight. The party decided to remain vigilant, but weren’t going to go searching for spiders, as they had a job to do. They found a trap door and a set of stairs that went down into the ground, so the mage lit a small light in his hand and down they went.
Game bit: The spider was my way of introducing Morrigan, she knew that they were here and was watching them.
