Shadows of Keron

This was my first Beasts & Barbarians game, tweaked significantly as it inherited characters from an existing homebrew fantasy setting, Irongrave. Basically, it used the Savage Worlds rules as written rather than the setting rules of B&B, which meant there were more (and different) races and arcane backgrounds in the party. The NPCs affected not to notice.

Irongrave

This campaign ran for half a dozen homebrew sessions before Beasts & Barbarians killed it and took its stuff. Session 1Session 2Session 3 – Session 4 – Session 5Session 6. I’ve lost the writeup for session 4, sadly.

Beasts & Barbarians

B&B Pilot: This introduced the PCs to each other and served as a transition from Irongrave to Shadows of Keron.

  2. Death of a Tyrant – Part 1. From the scenario of the same name.
  3. Death of a Tyrant – Part 2.
  4. Death of a Tyrant – Part 3. This was the session where we switched to the No Power Points setting rule.
  5. Death of a Tyrant – Part 4.
  6. Stargazer. A homebrew scenario inspired by an old Rainbow song.
  7. Citadel of the Winged Gods – Part 1. From the scenario of the same name.
  8. Citadel of the Winged Gods – Part 2.
  9. Citadel of the Winged Gods – Part 3.
  10. Temple of the Frog God. A homebrew scenario run as a flashback as most of the players couldn’t make this session.
  11. Citadel of the Winged Gods – Part 4 (from the scenario of the same name) and Thieves in the Night (from Savage Insider #3).
  12. The Uninvited Guest – a homebrew scenario in which the lich Jughal tries (but fails) to get his revenge on the party.
  13. The Skinner of Syranthia – using the scenario of the same name.
  14. Green World – Part 1. The first session of the Green World scenario.
  15. Green World – Part 2. The conclusion of the Green World scenario.
  16. Shrine of the Serpent Statues. An improvised homebrew scenario using Mythic as a Game Master emulator.
  17. Wolves in the Borderlands – using the scenario of the same name.
  18. Vengeance of the Branded Devils – Part 1. The first session for the introductory adventure in B&B Golden Edition.
  19. Vengeance of the Branded Devils – Part 2. The second session for the introductory adventure in B&B Golden Edition.
  20. Windborn. A scenario from the collection Beasts of the Dominions. This was a ‘flashforward’ session to work around a couple of missing players.
  21. Blood in the Snow. A session using one of the One Sheet adventures from Savage Worlds Deluxe. This was another ‘flashforward’ to accomodate missing players.
  22. Vengeance of the Branded Devils – Part 3. The final session for the introductory adventure in B&B Golden Edition.
  23. A Prince’s Life. Part 1 of Shadows Over Ekul. Athienne’s and Garstrewt’s players dropped out after this episode, reducing us to seven players.
  24. A Troubled Wedding. Part 2 of Shadows Over Ekul.
  25. The Enemy Revealed. Part 3 of Shadows Over Ekul.
  26. The Monastery of Shadows. Part 4 of Shadows Over Ekul.
  27. Pitch Black. A homebrew scenario based on the movie of the same name.
  28. Ye Lose, Ye Hated Elder Gods! A homebrew scenario based on a story I read in The Savage Sword of Conan. Peter Perfect, Abishag, Alihulk Junior and Borg drifted off to form a separate party after this, and headed south towards the Ivory Savannah, Caldeia, and episodes 30-32.
  29. The Death of Kumal the Smiling. A homebrew scenario in which my favourite villainous NPC of the campaign received his comeuppance. This was the final episode involving the core PCs of the group: Gutz, Nessime the Paladin, and the Warforged. Gutz and Nessime were last seen heading north to Jalizar, while the Warforged intended to seize control of the City of the Winged Gods and raise an army of Warforged.
  30. Hunter’s Moon. A scenario from the collection Beasts of the Dominions. By this point the party was reduced to Alihulk, Abishag and Peter, real life having claimed Borg’s player.
  31. The Windowless Tower. A scenario from the collection Dark Places of the Dominions.
  32. Hosts. A scenario from the collection Beasts of the Dominions. This is likely the swan song for Alihulk Junior, reducing the party to Peter Perfect the Paladin and Abishag.
