Vesper's Diary: Fools and Ghouls

 A write-up on my ACKS campaign run by Tenkar on G+ on Saturday night, from the POV of my character Vesper, the Nightblade.

They decided, even though I warned them they could be paralyzed, to take on the ghouls plaguing this little river crossing area.  Apparently there was a human sacrifice or something gone wrong.  Which of course is an oxymoron, because how could sacrificing humans ever go wrong—-unless they don't die of course.

We are mid-fight here, I don't know how many we will be battling..  I was hoping for some easy loot from the town, or from the church and apothecary/alchemist guy.  The foolish villagers in their ignorance burnt the alchemist lab down.  Something to do with this human emotion called guilt.  I dunno.

Anyhow, I'm just in this for the hint of dragon loot at the end of the day.  If there is any left, I can use it.  Resources were depleted with the new spells.

Well, I scribbled this between fights, so let me get back to slaying stuff.

Crazy thought—-they all get paralyzed, I live, I go back and get their stuff. Hmmm….
