Re: The Venga Campaign

Session 23 finishes up The Last Initiate and begins to set up The Legions of Last Souls. Murga and the bucket from the last session grows into a party joke. "Oh look a bucket," becomes code for a bad idea or something that the CK is dangling before the party that will likely turn out bad.

Re: The Venga Campaign

Session 22 is the start of the last part of the Witchfire Trilogy, The Legion of Lost Souls, and a side track in the Last Initiate. I quickly realize that I have made a mistake having Alexia join the party. She is way too powerful and things are way too easy for the party.
