Tonight we are going to play our third session of Dw, and I have created some long term fronts.

The story so far….

We started the campaign with the Pc’s escorting a caravan of (disguised) Custodian of the Order of the Silent Dawn. The exact nature of what were they escorting was kept secret from them, that was part of the deal: “don’t ask question”. During the journey they were ambushed, many were killed and the Pc’s were driven off to a magical swamp were they faced some cultists of Signadoth and discovered their base (an ancient temple of a forgotten good diety) as the heart of the swamp itself. They also confronted a Spirit of the Drowned who had infested the local river.

They met the Sorceress of the cult and managed to convince her to let them go, so she showed them a way out of the swamp.

Later they arrived to the poor and cursed village of Turburg, they helped the locals to kill a beast that during the night hunted the villagers, but can’t come into their house because of some protective gliphs on the doors..

The beast was an owlbear, but corrupted with unded energy. when they slayed the beast thousends of worms disgorged from the corpse (the druid followed the worms, but that is another story…).

They discover that the villager were once fishermans and also used to navigate the river to raid the village of Quinn, to the south. They say that Spirit of the Drowned they had previousely slain was there for years and was preventing them to come close to the river. they say they were cursed by the villager of Quinn.

and here’s the campaign front:

later I’ll post some back story to better understand the fronts…

One thought on “Tonight we are going to play our third session of Dw, and I have created some long term fronts.”

  1. BACK STORY (created collaborativley during the games, by rolling moves and ask/answear questions, plus some specific detail I’ve added between sessions to wrap thing up):


    two facts


    A century ago occured a bloody battle between the Order of the Silent Dawn on a side, and Signadoth the  blind demon prince and his followers, on the other.

    Finally the Order prevailed on the Demon and managed to banish him from the world, imprisoning him on a distant plane. But, many of the Order of the Dawn were killed in the battle and the Order itself disappeared.


    fifty years ago…

    a Dragon named Nashrazel was terrorizing the people of the north, and one knight named Cyril stood alone against the dragon and finally killed the winged beast.

    In the heat of the fight with the dragon, Cyril prayed for help and some misteryous entity answeared his call. Cyril offered his life if the mysterious entity would granted him the strenght to deliver a single deadly blow to Nashrazel. So a pact was sealed. The dragon was slayed, but the Entity took the life of Cyril’s family and not his. So the knight went mad, wondered alone for years, disappearing. Legend says that some of the blood spilled from the dragon’s wound crystallized into a weapon called The Claw of Regret, and that Cyril took it with him before he disappeared.

    …AND NOW…

    The Cult of Signadoth recently has embarked on a quest to retrieve the Claw of Regret, because of it’s power to release Signadoth the Demon Prince. Unfortunately the one who knows where is the Claw it is Shraya, the ruler of the Realm of the Nightmares, the place where bad dreams come from to visit mankind during the night. She is the custodyan of all mankind’s nightmares, including Cyril’s.

    But theyr plans are not unknown to the few successor of the newly reformed Order of the Dawn that kidnapped Shraya to hide her from theyr enemies.


    the Pc’s were hired to escort a caravan of a disguised group of men of the Order, who had to bring Shraya in a secret place, and then decide what to do with her. But during the journey they were attacked by a group of armed man (related to the cult of the demon prince), that took Shraya with them but later she managed to escape when the group confronted with a spirit of the drowned.

    The party retreated into a magical swamp (where they successfuly killed the spirit of the drowned). NOTE: Shraya it’s the only person of the realm of nightmares who can walk into the mortal world (only during the day time), but the Order casted a spell of binding on her, a tattoo that looks like chains, so now she can’t come back to his plane and it’s on the run.
