It is an account of a thirty-five year long, still continuing, game of Dungeons and Dragons (D&D). It has been played by the same people, with the same dungeon master, in the same world, since 1980. If you are a fan of D&D you will love this book. It tells how are group of adventurers started in their fantasy world, and slowly but successfully gained a reputation to righting wrongs and solving apparently insoluble problems.

Every day is accounted for; Every place is described: their battles; their losses; their gains; their successes and their failures.

Being the sundry chronicles and historical narratives of a very long-standing and continuous sequence of adventures and escapades befalling a troupe of adventurers in the realm of Dungeons and Dragons.


Dave Franklin
Master of the Environment

Deagan Fenn: a mighty and fierce fighter, thoroughly reliable in battle. Recently carelessly smashed his magical "Defender" sword in a moment of inattention in battle Weatherwax: a druid of remarkable prowess and power. Always skillful and dependable, and utterly committed to the wellbeing of the troupe.

Doug Banks

Dobby: an Elven Fighter whom we found in October 4335 (October 2007) in a dungeon in the castle near Windernesse during our Tomb of Valon adventure. Dalamar Caradon: was a protégé of Teral Guthdohtor,  in Irilian who joined us in March 4335 (May 2002) following the retirement of Weatherwax. She is a very powerful magician who has been able to work effectively with Solezar to conquer some of the troupe’s most powerful enemies.
Dr Rohan Thekla: a committed medical man who heals and repairs the damage suffered by all members of the troupe owing to the vagaries of the Adventurer's life. Tasselhoff Burrfoot: known as Tass to his friends. he is a halfling fighter who will commit acts of great bravery, but somewhat unpredictably.

Ken Spencer

Solezaar: an utterly reliable and committed magician of great value to the troupe. A erstwhile colleague of Dr Thekla.   Budwyn: this character has been transported from the troupe to an unknown place. It is hoped to retrieve him if at all possible.

Steve Ditte

    Rolwynn: a ranger who has proved himself trustworthy and reliable since he joined the troupe following the loss of Budwyn.
Corbane: a magnificent cleric and thoroughly committed. However, memory lapses and moments of inattention may cause Corbane to miss some of the action. Tankrid Silverhand: a Druid of great influence, suffering from occasional narcolepsy which can result in the late application of a good spell.

Fred Noel

Lucien Dedermont: an extremely powerful and useful archer. Many times has he demolished opposition forces with a single arrow! Salvador Goldmoon: a Human Druid who replaced Tankrid following his retirement to the Celadon Forest in May 4335 (January 2004) after the Tharisdon adventure.
Garlon: (also known as Girlyon) is an executioner of much, but not infallible, skill - wielding his two-handed sword he can frequently sever a neck. He has however, despicable views on all non-human life. Mylakhrion: a scout of great skill and bravery, usually reliable and committed in battle.

Mike Noel

    Milo: a Human magic user who replaced Mylakhrion following his strange change in appearance and name. Milo takes his name from Millo Fortress where he lived until he joined our troupe.
Cormanti: a cleric of previously great repute. However, his intermittent presence of late has reduced his effective contribution. Sprigg: a halfling thief, generally not of criminal disposition towards this troupe, he will use his skills to help the greater objective.

Roger Evans

Korgan: Originally named Wolfgar, a human barbarian whom we met in the Slugfest Inn in Evergloom. He begged to join us after our Albascor’s Tomb adventure in October 4335 (July 2007). Noir: joined in strange circumstances when Mylakhrion the scout changed his appearance one day and declared that henceforth he was to be known as Noir.
