Dragon Hunt

Apologies for the recent dearth of posts.  It has been - and continues to be - a busy time.  That said, I do have a fair few game reports still to present, starting off with this Challenges and Adventures role playing game run at the Sheffield Club by John on 23rd September(!)

As usual, we the payers represented a group of retired soldiers summoned by the local governor to undertake a mission.
 This time out patron was none other then the Prince of Wales - seen here with his hangers-on.  We were to find out why a mine in Wales had suddenly ceased production.  Communications from the nearby village has also ceased.

 Here we are at the entrance to the mine chatting to the dwarven inmates.  There emerged talk of dragons in the vicinity.  But that couldn't be true.....could it?
 Apparently it could.  We encountered this bugger en route to the village.  This was a dodgy rubbery-plastic toy I had picked up in a batch of toys earlier this year and passed on to John.  But when you're only 25mm tall and made from low melting point metal it looks pretty damn scary!
 While we were having a nice chat (did I tell you i speak a few words of Dragon?) about it's missing baby dragon...
 ...it's mate appeared.  Time to head off to the village.
 There we were welcomed by the Postmaster who doubled as innkeper.
 Long story short - one of the local shops was selling very popular ice cream and the shopkeeper's nubile daughter had a new pet.  The pet of course, turned out to be the baby dragon who had become addicted to the ice cream.  We soon returned the dragonette to Mum and Dad, the mine reopened and all was well.  Off home then for tea and medals, and hopefully a huge reward from the Prince.

As long as it isn't Maddox the dragon Conrad, I'm fine with that! As this new TV series (new to us in the US anyway) called The Bastard Executioner, the sicko
replaced by the hero in the story has my family name.....)

And as ever, disappointed!

Indeed - not even crappy plastic toy dragons.

I should say not! As you know I go to great lengths to avoid national stereotypes in games. Now get back to your Guinness drinking and potato digging....

And another reason to approach Wales with trepidation...

Hmm. 'Maddox the Ba**ard Dragon Executioner'. I'll try to fit him in the next game....

Don M said...

Why not I'll fit him in the family tree....)

In one of those pics is a £25 piece of lead... Makes me sweat just to see it.
