Category Pathfinder Campaign: To Sail the Southern Seas

Three years ago…

Three years before our tale…   Nerova clutched the rail tightly, his tense frame barely leaning on the rail despite that grip. He muttered a curse under his breath, and glanced over his shoulder to his first mate. The man, a hearty northerner known as Geld, nodded. Everything was still in place, ready. Yet, Nerova, […]

To Sail the Southern Seas: Session 5

         Each year as the holiday’s approach in December I try to give an adventure an appropriate feel. This past December, I did so once again, resulting in this session of “To Sail the Southern Seas”. I have a careful approach to these adventures which boils down to being subtle. This adventure […]

To Sail the Southern Seas: Session 4

Here we have the fourth chapter of this continuing story. With the Astrologer’s Albatross repaired and given a mandate to hunt the rogue Captain, Jalastar of Erryeth, the heroes embark on the next step in their journey. This is also an example of players reacting to a story in ways I did not foresee. As […]

To Sail the Southern Seas: Session 3

Here we have the third installment of this tale of the Heroes who sail the Southern Seas. Picking up from where session 2 left off, the Astrologer’s Albatross returns to port, and faces the results of their failure to arrest the crew of The Soul of Erryeth. The players really helped drive this adventure, so […]

The Heroes of Our Tale

Before I begin to recount the tale of my gaming group’s latest adventure, I think it is worth getting to know our eclectic cast of characters. These characters are the players creations, and how they contribute to the story we are creating. Honestly, as much as a GM does, without strong interesting characters like this, […]

The Setting

A year ago, our gaming group found ourselves finished with the world and story we had been playing in for three years. We decided we were ready for something new. We had already decided to leave D&D 4th edition behind in favour of Pathfinder, so a new world seemed fitting. I discussed some ideas with […]

To Sail the Southern Seas: Prologue

On the night of a full moon, the seas glisten with a pale silvery light that catches on the crests of the waves. They seem to carry the moon’s reflection with them as they roll across calm waters. Some such liquid undulations now slid across the bay that served as the Company’s harbour on the […]

To Sail the Southern Seas: Introduction

This is a running narrative of our Pathfinder campaign, entitled “To Sail the Southern Seas”. This is a custom campaign written by me, using the Pathfinder rules. Our group meets every two weeks or so and usually plays for about 5 to 6 hours. As a result posts will come out about a week after […]
