Keep on the Borderlands Solo – 2

This is a follow up to my first session of solo Labyrinth Lord Keep on the Borderlands. Last time, Tangrir the Fencer made his way to the Keep but was unable to find any paying work or clues to the location of the famed Caves of Chaos, so he has been ranging to get a feel for the environs.

Keep on the Borderlands Solo – 1

Inspired by Damn Elf Press, I’ve decided to start a solo Labyrinth Lord game based on the classic Keep on the Borderlands adventure. This will be a relatively hard core game that’s going to rely on good rolling and clever play. At first I’ll be using straight-d6 damage and rolling 3d6-in-order stats, but I’ll be allowing my PCs to start with max HP at first level.

Tangrir the Fencer (Fighter 1, 0/2025xp): 11-16-9-14-10-6. 8/8 hp. 16 ac (chain+dex). Melee: rapier (+0 dmg, +2 hit). Ranged: bow (+0 dmg, +2 hit). 6 gp. Inventory (5/10): rapier, bow and quiver (20), bedroll, waterskin, rations (7)

My character is Tangrir, a swordsman from a distant land who has come to the Borderlands in search of fortune. He is marked by his lithe strength, sharp mind, whip-fast rapier play, and the hideous scar that mars his face.

I’ll be seeding my adventure with the following Mythic NPCs and Threads, based on my knowledge of the module. Note that this is different from ordinary Mythic behavior in that many of these NPCs and Threads may be unknown by my character, and their presence will only be seen through random actions during events.

NPCs: corrupt priest, castellan, necromancer, captain of the watch

Threads: missing merchant, clear the Caves of Chaos
