Ominous, I know. But sometimes you are so wronged, so completely abused that you can do nothing else save sulk off and concoct a plan to get even. In case you didn’t know, my Frostgrave wizard suffered a huge loss in the last game at the hands of a player that shall remain nameless (well nameless here. I drop all sorts of names in the report).
My animal companion, Mutt, died brutally on the fields of ruin. It was a heavy blow and there was nothing left to do but pick up the pieces of that broken heart and move on.
Well… literally. Therelin, my Wizard picked up all the gory parts and went back home to figure out how to “save” her friend. She’s not really all that powerful and can’t just resurrect things left and right but she did have one option: Raise Zombie.
So she got to work, putting back the pieces of what was left of Mutt as best she could.
Parts of Mutt just didn’t look right anymore and likely wouldn’t even animate properly so she had to improvise.
With only half a specimen left, she had to shore up some of the beast’s core and bring back, well the back half.
While a bit crude, the body was complete and Therelin stepped back to admire her work.
All that was left now was to try the incantation and bring her companion back with one single, black-hearted, purpose: to destroy the villain that laid Mutt low in the first place.
Though new Mutt is but a shadow of his former self, I’m sure he’ll do alright, as long as the spell works…
In other news, based on some discussion about “what if we…” during our last game, I whipped up a quick table “stand” for our next game. It was a simple and crude design but dirt cheap as I got a lot of the extra table pieces from scrap at Lowe’s.
The idea behind it is to allow for two Frostgrave maps to lay out logically on one table. The top of the table will represent the main level of the city and all the main architecture. Underneath the top will like a catacomb labyrinth with access above to the below.
While night games are fun, they aren’t particularly practical so the ribbon lightly underneath will help players navigate the under-ruins.
Still with a sense of the macabre, I cut apart some old unused plastic skulls and attached them to the table legs. The table is ready, just have to get the next game on the books and rally the troops… to their doom. Or at least one of them. Mwahahaha!
