[DEUTSCH] World of Aventurien: Schatten im Zwielicht (Session 13 von 13)
Gerrit Reininghaus leitet eine Session für Christopher G., Eike K., Sabine V., und Tina T.
Inferno - Morgon turned into a sun in the devastating events at Andalkan. We mourn for him but, as his will was, without (wet) tears. Rukus shot a dragon with a ballista to confront his nemesis but defied the final battle for the greater good and the life of his love, Boronhilf. Boronhilf stopped the Krakoniers' Priestess dreams with green, cold fire. While the never sleeping Lucaria black holed The Invincible Flesh Spider and then escaped, riding on the back of a sea snake, supposed to be her child. This was the final session of Schatten im Zwielicht. Thanks to the 13 players who joined us in this journey over 13 sessions in the last months.

Achtung! Cthulhu Dark: The Angel of Krupna (Session 4 of 4)
Alun R. runs for Eduardo L., Sabine V., Walter German, and William
The series climaxes with the stealthy infiltration of the Castle Karlstein and a confrontation with the final, bestial, horror that cost one character his life (the self-sacrificing Brit), and another his sanity (the over-curious Czech professor with a new taste for human flesh...). Meanwhile our clever young Czech hero earned his spurs and, inevitably, the incredibly handsome American diplomat got away with most of the essential intelligence. Great to GM this series (my first 4 session series for the Gauntlet), and the hack is a lot more solid now than it was. Thanks, all.
