Welcome to Silvermane Gaming
My name is Colin Pittman and I love games.
You might be thinking to yourself, "That's great, but why should I care?"
Well I'm about to tell you why. Perhaps you want to play D&D but you've never run a game. I can help you with that. I've been playing role playing games for over twenty years and running campaigns in every edition of D&D.
Maybe you want to have a team building event? Why not games? I can help with that, as well.
Don't have any of the books? Don't worry, I've got them. Never played before? I can teach you.
So what are you waiting for? You're only limited by your imagination. Come play with us!
June 6th, 2018: The Lokasenna
Mirror step through the portal to see a Drow priestess with a shocked expression on her face. She gave a quick glance back seeing Baragor's confused look.
With a brilliant smile Mirror reassured him, "Don't worry dear. The storms are here." She turned back to the drow with a smirk.
"Drew, sic 'em"
Drew charged through the portal deflecting a blow from the Yochlol as it tried to attack Easot before he could banish it. Scourge followed Drew's opening striking at the Priestess striking her down it a flash.
The Storms of Cirracia had arrived.

"Hey look. Pretty multicolored lights."
"Ow! What the hell?!?"

There was a crack of thunder and a flash of light as the cult fanatic was impaled upon Galena's electrified Javelin. The Ratcatchers were just mopping up what was left of the pirates and the cultists when it rose from the water. The tentacled monstrosity unleashed a wall of ice smashing into Elan, Galena, and Albrik, who had wild shaped into an Octopus. With the wall trapping Nyxie in the cave the rest of the party were split on each side of the wall. Linnaea was quickly grappled and crush in the creature's tentacles as Albrik tried to rescue her, only to get pummled to death! As Galena and Keith rushed to engage the otherworldly monster it summoned an ice storm crushing the the pair into the surf of the coastline, buried under a deluge of ice. What was left of the party ran to the Ship, the Inheritor, trying to get to the cannons as the creature stalked them. With each miss of cannon fire another person perished as this part squid,part spider thing ripped through them until only Elan was left. And with a dismissive swipe of its tentacle Elan was broken.
In the distance Nyxie rushed back to the shoreline they arrived on to warn the crew of the Second Best that a unholy mostrosity had been unleashed... and was now coming for them.

Ratcatchers fighting pirates! Wait... what did that guy just turn into?!?

Galena watched as Thurakk fell under the gnashing teeth of the rat-creatures. Taking her maul and swinging it into Thurakk’s attacker crushing it under the weight of her blow! Before she could check the fallen half-orc she heard a cry of pain as Keith fell to the ground clutching gaping wound in his side. The dwarf barbarian rushed over to Keith pulling out her magic javelin. Nymea, the traitorous half-elf, stood amongst the sea of rats directing them in their chants to bring their Pale King to life. The chamber was filled with these rat creatures and they were greatly outnumbered. Aidra and Nyxie were poisoned yet fighting on with Harenth and Elan doing what they could to provide them with cover. Galena stepped over Keith protectively as she held her javelin aloft.
“Thor’s favor!” Galena cried out as she threw the javelin toward a rat-creature just behind Nymea.
There was a flash, as if Thor himself had summoned down a bolt of lightning and gave it to the Galena. She threw with all her might as it streaked across the room striking beside the terrified target of her attack. She missed the rat barely but it mattered very little. Three of the rat-creatures the bolt passed by were disintegrated by the sheer force of the lightning. Nymea only barely survived as the bolt badly burned the right side of her body, fusing cloth and skin, burning hair and flesh… her screams could not be heard over the thunder.
Galena stepped through the aftermath raising her maul as Nymea slumped to her knees, unable to stand anymore.
Nymea defiantly croaked out, “The p-p-ale king w-w-ill p-p-rotect me…”
Galena’s maul disagreed.

The Ratcatcher's have found the strange underground dwelling of the demonic rat creatures that have kidnapped the academics they were hired to protect. Now is the time to rescue them and bring retribution upon these foul creatures!
March 27th, 2018: The Lokasenna
The Lokasenna's first combat encounter with a Mind Flayer... it went as well as you might think.
Half the party was stunned for several rounds and once they got close enough to actually attack the Mind Flayer he Plane Shifted away with his pet Intellect Devourers.

Thurakk stood up slowly looking down at his massive hands as the fog began to clear. The full moon shone through the god illuminating the camp. "Are you okay?" Maleisse's voice was suddenly like burning embers in the half-orc's ears. He growled in pain as his hands contorted, bones snapping, claws forming! With an inhuman screech he lashed out at Maleisse with a clawed hand across her face. His mind descended into base animalistic thoughts even as he tried to maintain his control. Everyone stared on in shock as Thurakk's body began shifting...

The party realizes that they might be facing a cult that is worshiping some rat-like demon. Seems that a caravan had disappeared in the forest outside of Nimes and there is an academic group going to investigate that will need protection. This provides the party a perfect opportunity to investigate. After four days of travel in cold driving rain the group is ambushed by Bandits! Fortunately they defeated and captured their leader to question. Hopefully answers will soon follow.
Highlight: Female Dwarf Barbarian running around jump smashing and kneecapping Bandits with her Maul... GALENA SMASH!

The Bard is saved! But not all is well under the city. Wererats working with humans for some unknown reason. What can they be planning, what are they up to, why are they here? With the King escaping who knows that the future holds.

Harenth the half-elven ranger and Linaea,half-elven paladin of Apollo, chased the thug down a five-foot-wide hallway drawing their weapons. The thug spun around swinging his mace wildly at Hareth as LInaea ducked under, sliding by the thug. Harenth stabbed at the flanked thug wounding his as Linaea sliced up the thug’s back with her greatsword ending his life. They quickly turn to rescue Elan the half-elven bard from his captors only to be stunned by the scene before them.
Elan with rapier in hand was swinging from a chain back and forth across the room fencing with a mace wielding thug!
“Ha ha!” Elan proclaimed as he parried and countered wounding the thug as he swung by.
Back in the hall, Thurakk the half-orc barbarian was walking towards two rat men while playing a dirge upon his bagpipes as Aidra the Tiefling fighter moved up beside him and Nyxie the Tabaxi fighter backed away notching another arrow…
Next week should be interesting!

Back to the smuggler's docks... where death awaits. The party barely survived the encounter and lost Bawb the sorcerer as he drowned in the sea. On the bright side the party succeeded in their mission. A bittersweet victory is still a victory.
February 13th, 2018: The Lokasenna
Boruta, the Blazing Rage flapped his mighty wings scattering his foes before him. His red scales thick with his own blood as he landed back on the ground. His disdain for Lynnithon and Nakata, his own kind that had turned against him, knew boundless rage. The Lokasenna trying desperately to get to their feet before the ancient red dragon extinguished their lives. As Boruta began to draw breath to unleash hellfire upon them all his heart froze, as a elderly voice called out anarcane word that meant death. Boruta was slain before his body hit the ground as the Lich stood behind him. Before the dragon's soul could escape to mother Tiamat, the Lich's power clawed it out of the ether and pulled it towards a phylactery... of sorts. The red essence of rage and power solidified in the Lich's hand to the shock and horror of all as a red Orb of Dragonkind came into being.
The Lich smiled to the battle weary party and their unexpected allies, "All of you have my gratitude. I couldn't have achieved this without your help."

The party have found out that the person that they were looking for is the tavern keeper's wife. Why would the ratfolk want her dead? What is with that stone idol? Questions must be answered next week!
January 31st, 2018: Adventurer's League @ Gamer's Armory
The party survived the rat infestation and found the source... which presented them with an offer! Will the party work with the ratfolk living in the smuggler's docks to take out a rival? We'll find out next week!
Congratulations to Elan and Theron for both achieving 2nd level! May your bardic wit never leave you.

Rats! Rats! Everywhere Rats! I had the privilege of running some 1st level character trying to clear the old smuggler's docks of a rat infestation brought on by nefarious ne'er-do-well... Rule one, don't split the party. First thing that happens, they split the party. Hilarity ensues!
January 12th - 14th, 2018: Illogicon
Had a great time running Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition at Illogicon 2018! Ran into some old friends and fellow gamer at the event. Also got to help out and teach some people how to play Forbidden Desert. Overall it was a great event and I can't wait for the next one.
