A new party of characters featured in this adventure, namely Sine (m; fighter), Calcula (f; fighter), Cosine (m; rogue), Calcula (f; ranger), Tangent (m; wizard), and Logarithm (f; cleric).
The party enters the mines near the town of Duvik's Pass to find the source of a plague which has affected the water supply. In the mines they find some sick kobolds and the source of the disease itself, an orc cleric and worshipper of Gruumsh called Jakk Tornclaw, who has also been infected. The adventurers defeat Jakk and the plague passes.
It took me ages to write this one because on each occasion that I started it, I'd have the company traipsing up to the mines with the ground frozen around them and… That was about it. I ended up finishing it off at school during the exams for want of anything...

The PCs for this adventure were my usual line-up, but Salt and Naidecolen were replaced by Lucian/Gevyen and Nicoramus from Expedition to Castle Ravenloft.

The company in Barovia was Gunpowder, Kingdom, Power, Salt, Saecula, and Naidecolen.

Gunpowder, Kingdom, Glory and Saecula were rejoined by Power, and had recruited Salt, the elf wizard who had appeared in War of Dragons, to their ranks.
The party arrives in Winterhaven to map a nearby keep for Parle Cranewing, who is writing a history of the Nerath Empire. They encounter some kobolds before they reach the town. A man called Valthrun tells them that there are kobolds living there. He suggests that the PCs should see Lord Padraig, who offers them a commission to deal with the kobolds. He points them towards the keep and also tells them about the dragon's burial site, which is being excavated by a man called Douven Staul.
The adventurers head off and duly encounter some kobolds, discovering that they're under the command of a goblin called Irontooth, who answers to someone...

This adventure featured Gunpowder and his companions once again. However, it took me some time to write anything because the more I looked at The Road to Oblivion, the less workable and more ill-conceived the story became. At the time, I'd been doing a lot of Classical Greek, and I wrote it up as a trial with the the party being sued by Kartak Spulzeer for destroying the juggernaut which had been threatening to destroy the town of Oblivion. The story is told in retrospect at the trial. The result is unsatisfactory, but that was the nature of the adventure.
Next time: Keep on the Shadowfell....

Gunpowder and his band were the PCs in this adventure, which was a side trek for Expedition to Castle Ravenloft.

I went back to Gunpowder and his band of merry mercenaries, but wrote Power out and an elf called Saecula in.

In Dungeons and Dragons, the campaign/adventure does not start off in a dark, dank dungeon or a shadowy forest. No, the start of any adventure begins with the characters. However there is, and should be, more than just rolling up a character and jotting his/her stats down on a character sheet and starting play. There are questions about that character or even a group of characters that are eventually asked. How did they come to be in the town the adventure takes place in? How do they know each other? Why exactly is Sir Paramore the Just a good guy? Why is Niles a Rogue? To answer these questions, one must not only give stats to thier character, but also to give them a background.
Character backgrounds give life to a character. They tell not only the DM, but other players as well the reasons...

As a DM, we spend hours creating adventures, getting stat blocks ready and generally spending much more time designing and adventure than we do playing. I know that a lot of younger DM's and new DM's are on my friends list and this is for you.
