            • My theory, Rose really hooked up with Donna in the end who just happened to look like the Doctor…
    • Heroes Reborn?  Anyone?  The first episode was pretty cool.  They better not screw this up this time.

      • Nana – It’s on Netflix.  Add this to your queue.  If you are a lady or a guy who likes shows with a more romantic element, WATCH THIS.  The English Voice acting is FIRST RATE.  This is easily going to end up being in the top favorite Animes I’ve watched this summer.  (And I counted my Anime’s, I have completed 24 series with 5 more ip)
        • WARNING!  Do not watch this unless you are prepared to cry.  This Anime made me feel an incredible amount of joy in addition to ripping my heart out, setting it on fire, stomping on it, and then shooting it into space while I watched.


More Gatekeeper patron quests – Devil’s Gambit

Tavern Brawl

ALERT ALERT! Those horrible awful green devils are trying to destroy the pocket dimension in which the Portable Hole resides and I can’t have that!! It’s the place where I can get some peace and quiet, a place where the mood is serene and positive, where the anvils and boulders of life float weightless and sparkle with stardust, a place where I can get away from all of the non magical aggressive jerks around here. Well, for the most part. Some sneak in here and more than a few of those book toting wizards are suspect but for the most part, a little oasis of peace and joy and the devils can’t have it!

That’s what I said anyway, so we immediately went to save my precious little tavern. When we got there we found that they were searching for something called the Transfinite Compass and even though managed to kick all of their butts out of there we didn’t come across any compass.

Grimm and Barret

Apparently the devils are on the prowl in several places, tearing apart things looking for some pieces of equipment, for what? The devils were in the harbor tearing apart the Gatekeeper’s Hostel looking for the Planer Awl. We began our little investigation of the place, with help from some of the hostel’s residents – Grimm, a cute fat rat and Barret, a giant but cuddly dire bear, and Volf the wolf. We wiped the place clean of undesirables and never did come across the Awl. We have to assume that they absconded with it.

Multitude of Menace

Next, we heard that the Devils had swarmed into the House Cannith Enclave searching for something called a Planar Containment Generator. We were on a mission now so off we went to House C. Once we got there we were told to enter the magewright’s hall where we began our search.      For the most part it seemed that we spent our time chasing a tiefling guy named Carver and we killed him over and over and over. OK, not really, but he was able to make multiple copies of himself and the more we killed the more he made. Ultimately we got the best of him but we didn’t even see a hint of any generator. They must have found it and taken it away before we arrived.


The Twelve have a super special, super secret warehouse where they store super scary magic items too dangerous to be exposed to the public so of course the Devils broke into this warehouse in their search for an item called the Eldritch Attractor. First, I would like to point out that every place we went tonight, we were just in time to see Harry on his way out and the Twelve was no exception. We fought a little bit of everything in here, abshi, warforged titans, orthons, and crazed cultists to name a few, but the oddest thing we saw were some really weird aberrations called Slaad, that look like big toads. Weird. We killed them too.



Aretrekos is a rock star. Seriously, Stormreach cannot get enough of him!

HA, they were all great! 🙂




  • All Things Mythery:


    • Mythery Says:  “There’s a shoe store in Three Barrel Cove?  Cool!”
      • “I’m back here!”  She says as she is running around the corner from a dozen mobs.  LIES!
      • “I have cat face.”
      • I lied to myth today.  “Ouran HS Host club” is NOT an all boys school.


  • Ask Mythery:
    • On a scale of Whatever to Unicorn, how much do you love your current fire savant?
    • What is the square root of glitter?
