As the AaWBlog started to ramp up in February, we took our first ambitious steps towards continuous adventures with Cultus Sanguineus, an exploration of the hidden orders of corrupted nobility in Mohkba, capital of the Klavek Kingdom! What began as a simple request for a magic item that changes the wearer into a vampire spread into […]

Macabre Manses (part 2) and Extra Web Content!

Two weeks ago we properly introduced you to the Macabre Manses with Justin Andrew Mason’s deviant carrionette fleshdolls and Rory Toma’s pumpkin-themed tribute to Joshua Gullion. Finishing up the month, Jeremy Kleve took us into the weird places of the cosmos with Fomalhaut the Nebulous, his deranged acolyte Gruxm Goretooth, a strange magic item made […]

Foul Machinations: Destiny Derailed (Part 1)

  As the PCs explore the Dar’Spelun Slugmarsh, more of the subterranean swamp—almost all of it prohibitively dangerous—reveals itself. Parties in the Underworld bogs have already dealt with an ambush in the Tangleroot Forest, preyed upon by the voracious carrion crawler. Some of the powers that the karz slugs are able to unlock are discovered in […]

Mischievous Meadows – Part 2

This month the AaWBlog has been pretty tricky with Mischievous Meadows, but it’s finally ready to reveal what all is going on in the otherwise idyllic groves and hills. The P.R.A.N.K.S.T.E.R.S. are a truly mysterious group that span the world, carrying on in different concentrations of members but pervading virtually every settlement in Aventyr in […]

Countess Darah Veresovich first heard of the Items Sanguineus while traveling abroad—where none can say (and anyone that might have died long ago). She has since devoted her entire family’s fortune and interests to acquiring the items and has already seen the trio of items lost twice; this time she’s prepared for the contingencies and has riders […]
