Ok, some kid game humor with some bad dad joke flavor mixed in. But! I did want to talk about the new maze I made. We have Frostgrave Friday coming up this week and we’ll be journeying once again into the frozen wastes, this time to The Haunted Library…

Busy week this week so I was only able to mess around with one of the shots I made for the banner image. More Frostgrave fun for the week.
Looking ahead to our next Frostgrave session, I decided we would run the same scenario across both games to make things easier. I really like the idea of the maze-like library and theme in the The Library scenario but wanted more danger. The Haunted Houses scenario introduced wraiths and I thought that might be cool to have floating around the library, going through the maze walls like they were nothing.
I recently picked up some of the shade monsters from Descent and knew I had the scenario laid out.
With Colton and Reese’s game report in and my “narrative” session complete, I figured I’d wrap up the rest of the sessions by going over the some last items from reports with a quick write up of my game and a make-up game with the only member that couldn’t make it the first time around. But first, the centerpieces of our games, the Mausoleum and statues.
I know I’ve been obsessed with Frostgrave all week but after our first game, it has it’s hooks in me. Deep. So time to keep the ride going and highlight Therelin and her furry friends.
Claw’s musty fur felt soft in her hands as Therelin stroked the old sleeping hound, his oversized head lying in her lap. The candles had long gone out save for one flickering guardian. Had the spell failed? It rarely did before but the night was queer and all the nervous tension leading up to this moment may have jinxed her calling. Still, all the old powers surged at the ritual’s completion so she felt something else must afoot.
The hound’s ear twitched towards the door and soon enough, the young wizard heard the slow, heavy footfalls of her former guardian climbing the stairs. With a heavy knock, the unlatched door opened, ushering in a chill wind that guttered the last candle out.
“Sorry your Grace, but the men are ready,” Tog said softly in the dark.
We had our first full Frostgrave session over the weekend and it was a lot of fun. Five of us were able to make it out on the snowy night and so we split into two groups. I started writing up my session report but it mutated into some long narrative instead. I was having fun writing so I figured I’d keep the non-traditional report but will need more time to edit it a bit more. In the meantime, my friend Colton was able to write up his own report of the other game that was running on the other table:
Reese and I played The Mausoleum scenario in the core book. In this scenario, a crypt in the center of board stands silent watch over several valuable pieces of treasure. But something foul has gone wrong in this ancient tomb and the undead are restless.
After a few false starts with my new airbrush, I finally had everything ready to go and was going to use a production-style process to finish up a batch of Frostgrave treasure chests. I picked up a water trap (thanks Russ!) and figured out the correct fittings for everything so it was time to set up the paint area.
Our next game of Frostgrave is coming up and I needed to solidify my warband again and finalize everything for upcoming campaign. I was a bit jealous that everyone had wizard-looking wizards in their upcoming band and even though I really liked my Ranger-wizard, I thought I could do better and get someone looking more the part.
After months of planning and painting, my group started up our first venture into Frostgrave. It was a compromise on many levels but the group is nothing if not good sports and we set our date and stuck to it last weekend. Six of us ultimately ended up in the campaign and this presented a slight challenge as there were quite a few that were brand new to Frostgrave and even brand new to tabletop minis in general. To ease everyone in, I concocted a simple intro scenario to bring us all together and get everyone on the same footing.
