Waterdeep: Dragon Heist (Part 1)

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! I recently began running a PbP (play-by-post) campaign of Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, a sprawling urban adventure full of intrigue, mystery, and iconic villains. I have five (yes, five) players joining me for this adventure. And it’s going to be one heck of a ride!

The City of Splendors is the party’s oyster in this post at Tiefling Corner.

My Characters: Keegam

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! Since I usually DM for my players, I don’t usually get a chance to play as a player. However, I enjoy making characters anyway!

This character is a bit special. They are my first character for the Greyhawk setting (originally introduced by the co-founder of DND Gary Gygax!), and also my first Barbarian: it’s time to introduce you all to Keegam!

It’s about time that we made a Barbarian in this post at Tiefling Corner.

Rest in Skyhaus: Escaping Greater Talisman Island, Part 2

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! In the last part of this pirate adventure across the Bandit’s Sea, the players were rescued from an invading Axebeak tribe by the elusive Griffon tribe, a group that rides and tames griffons. Now, about a week later, we continue the story as the Griffon tribe rescuing party lands on a massive city floating using magic to discuss deals with a new benefactor!

Welcome to Skyhaus in this post at Tiefling Corner.

Island Showdown! Taking Down Captain Relevos, Part 2

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! In the previous part of Taking Down Captain Relevos, the players learned from the storm giant Seabeard that the Saltnoose and its captain, a half-elf called Captain Relevos, were headed towards the Talisman Islands for some unknown reason. Now, we continue the story!

Say a “land ho!” in this post at Tiefling Corner.

After That Ship! Taking Down Captain Relevos, Part 1

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! In the last post on the site, the players made it into Sahaugin Stop and hopefully rested, refueled, and learned rumors from locals or prisoners at the Seavault to continue their adventure. Now, it’s time to start a battle voyage as the players go head-to-head with the intellect of Captain Relevos and his ship, the Saltnoose, as well as consulting the storm giant Seabeard for guidance against the powerful ship!

The greatest game is about to begin in this post at Tiefling Corner.

Resting and Refueling at Sahaugin Stop, Part 2

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! In the previous article, I explained the pirate fort known as Sahaugin Stop, the Coalition of Pirate Lords, and the massive underground prison below Sahaugin Stop known as Seavault. There was so much content that it needed a sequel. Now, it’s time for shopping! In DND! Hopefully your characters have money in their pockets, because this is going to be a mad romp through Sahaugin Stop, and there are no ATMs here, just pickpockets!

Shop till you drop (or not) in this post at Tiefling Corner!

The Quad Squad: Part 2

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! As of last session, the Quad Squad had only 3 players. But today, there’s one less! As one of our players had something going on (and our fourth wanted to wait to enter for a full team), we went ahead and did a downtime session with two of the players.

Backstories incoming in this post at Tiefling Corner.

Resting and Refueling at Sahaugin Stop

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner!

So, your sailing adventurers (who may or may not be pirates) have just finished a tough battle with two different ships (hey, I designed that!) or have done a bunch of thievery on the high seas. They need a place to rest that isn’t constantly rocking, messy, or filled with vomit. That’s where Sahaugin Stop comes in: the finest pirate fort on the high seas!

This is a wretched hive of scum and villainy in this post at Tiefling Corner.

(SPOILERS for Battle Aboard the Dragonbeer!)

Battle Aboard the Dragonbeer: One-Shot Guide!

Welcome back to Tiefling Corner! I have pirates on the brain.

Last week, I explained lore for the region of the Highfell known as the Bandit’s Sea (explained here), as well as explained the pirate factions in the region. Today, I’ll explain how to run Battle Aboard the Dragonbeer, a high-stakes one-shot on the high seas designed for players of 6th-7th level, as well as how the powerful artifact known as Lional’s Krakengaard works!

It’s pirate season in this post at Tiefling Corner.
