Announcement: New Season
Adventurers! How are you all doing during these strange times? I know life has been throwing some of us curveballs as of late – schools close and open again, people fall ill or their spouses and kids do, new houses, new work, new ways of playing D&D remotely, new rules, new dungeon masters.

Five adventurers gathered in an inn and some of them already met previously, but most learned more about each other on the way to their quest giver. On the road there was some commotion and during the night Thoragok heard some rustling leaves, but whatever there was decided to not bother the adventurers.

Hunt for the Diamentals II: Diamond Harder
In the mountains to the east, there are majestic beasts, with eyes that contain the power to bring people back to life. Arestes told us about his adventures finding them and failing to get any diamonds. He was determined to try again so he was looking for new people to join him. Our trek was grueling, we had to keep count of our food and wrap ourselves in fur, but it was broken up by interesting conversations in the light of a fire.
Fake News

Fake News
Hello My Unicorn Goddess, It's me Smudge. I just wanted to thank you kindly for that little clue you gave me while figuring out what those tinfoil hat-wearing Kobolds were up to. The Adventurer's Guild had sent us through the long-forgotten water system of the old city of hope towards a colony of Kobolds who had been printing and distributing all sorts of fake news to Brighthaven. Some were spreading misinformation that Gnomes were being discriminated against and it was most disconcerting! On the other hand, we also found that they were spreading news that Gnomes are fearsome and evil. I'd never heard nonsense like it! Have you? No surely not, or you wouldn't share your divine light with me as you do.
Stone Cold Eyes

Stone Cold Eyes
A while back a small and dirty child miraculously managed to hitchhike for days or weeks to get to Adventurer's Rest. There he told of a small village over by the mountains - Grovendal. There was a terrible monster that was extorting the villagers, having them hand over any valuables they could gather, and at times even their own children when the monthly offerings were lacking.

Hunt for the Diamantals
So, it was very cold and there was not much food to be found. And in the end we got almost nothing - it only costs us money. Not much of a thrilling tale now is it? The opposite is true. Hear me out.

Mr. Brightsmile
Dear mom, I know our situation is a bit weird, with you being there, and me being... well, here, and also that you won't read this letter until I give it to you, but it really helps me come to terms with things.

Chasing after the Ones we love
The party was sent to investigate strange goings on at a Circus outside of Williamsfield. On arrival the party investigated the circus area and noticed that the entire area had been consecrated. There were a few dozen people there all wearing masks, and all of them “not living”.

Li - The Showdown
The elusive Li needs to be put out. Who the hell does she think she is? Defying me? After meeting with Annabel in the ethereal plain, we had gathered enough clues on the mysterious soul eating lady that abducted kids back in Gundo’s hope. Li appeared to have become a hag, consumed in a quest for power. She gave us precious items, a stone supposed to help us track her throughout the dimensions, and a necklace, sensing her presence.

It is not that often that several researchers hungry for knowledge get a chance to learn so much. Well, we have, although the intel we’ve learned is far from comforting.

Announcement: New Dungeon Masters
Adventurers, Today we mark the beginning of a new year. I hope 2021 may be the year that we return to something that resembles normalcy: parties, going out for a movie and diner, at-the-table play and offline meetups for our group. That would be SO very welcome. I. Cannot. Wait.
Update: Season shop
January 01, 2021
Update: Season shop
With the pirate threat eliminated, our merchants can rest easy as their supply lines have been safeguarded. However, there is no opportunity for adventurers to rest easy. There seems to be an unusually large amount of traffic going from the empire to Kuth. There are even reports of skirmishes along the border. We ask you all to be vigilant about the comings and goings of these figures for there is no telling what they are up to and what their plan is.

Why is the rum gone?
Stormboy is in panic : the cutest Koala knows something is wrong with the rum supply and asks for help. Without rum, pirates are doomed! He led us to Orian Deadbeard, who knows about the whereabouts of the main suspect : Purple Beard.
The Escort Mission

The Escort Mission
A masked man approaches us with a mission to retrieve some treasure from a location two days west of Brighthaven along the coast, and escort it safely back, declaring that secrecy is essential. He introduces himself as Nigel, a poor farmer’s boy who is mute, although he can speak. The treasure he speaks of will be used to combat the Green Menace, one of the greatest threats to Brighthaven.
Some Kind of Monster
December 20, 2020
Some Kind of Monster
It often happens that we are sent out on missions with little information, but this time more so than ever. All we knew was that several ships had been attacked by Something after having gotten close to an unidentified ship. Whatever attacked these ships seemed to be purple in colour and have the ability to spit some kind of corrosive substance.
A Solstice Chanty

A Solstice Chanty
It is weird enough being invited to an island full of pirates, but what we actually found was maybe even weirder. It was a fully tropical island, a big change from the cold weather on the main continent. Upon arrival we were kindly greeted and asked to partake in a variety of games, gamble some money and eat a quite delicious assortment of fruit and other dishes.
Burning down a Mountain

Burning down a Mountain
Dear Diary, Today I met up with Toca, Garr and Syllin again, and met a new friend in Arkas (who was the captain of our trip, as he was wearing the captain’s hat). Originally, the mission we were going to be on sounded very exciting: We were to crash a boat into the mothership of the pirates (who were being mean to innocent civilians, so it was ok).
Announcement: Tasha's Cauldron

Announcement: Tasha's Cauldron
Adventurers, We have read ‘Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything’. We believe the magical items, spells, and subclasses are very well balanced, interesting to use, and bristling with role-play potential. So.... drumroll... we are happy to announce that the subclasses, optional class features, spells, and magical items will be allowed in the East Marches!

Adventurers, October has been wonderful. We have pioneered our first online Meetup, which was a huge success (I loved the costumes!!), we hosted a record-breaking 16 sessions in one month, and we have worked hard behind the scenes on recruiting new DMs, setting up a new website, and rethinking some of the rules and practices in our group. Thank you all for being awesome and actively contributing to our group.

Tirthin's Shrine

Tirthin's Shrine
In this mission, our goal was to safely deliver a statue across the sea and install in at Tirthin’s Shrine. As we later learned, is was a tongue of a larger statue of a person with a beard and bare breasts, and it is related to some deity of seas AND fertility.
