Skin of my teeth!

Just finished Justin's latest Vaults of Ur game.  It didn't go so well for our PCs, but it was a ton of fun.

I just barely survived an encounter with Beastmen.  After healing up (spending all our remaining cash and trading the weapons/medallions taken from the beastmen for healing potions to do so), we went out and found the zoo.

Long story short, we ran into ghouls, Karl the mad Irishman (formerly Kullpetal the Orc) and Danyael the Fighter were paralyzed.  Thidrek was foolishly in melee with the beasts trying to help Karl.  When Danyael was paralyzed too, the Sleestak wisely ran away.

So now he's got no friends or adventuring companions, and a mere 2 gp to his name.  At least he's alive, and can attempt another expedition in two weeks.


  1. awesome. you pulled a josh. how did people take it?

  2. Fairly well. The one new guy at first didn't realize he was helpless, so he thought I was just leaving him to fight alone. When he realized he was fully paralyzed and could do nothing, he said something to the effect of "Oh, I guess that makes perfect sense now."

  3. b r u t a l . . .

    guess i need another character, think i'll try a Cleric as they seem to level quickly

  4. A cleric would be nice. Could have potentially saved our bacon, as in Classic D&D Cure Light Wounds can be used to remove Paralysis.

    Anyway, I think we need a big score so we can get some decent armor. Not fond of the Labyrinth Lord prices there.
