"Dreams die hard and you hold them in your hands long after they've turned to dust." - DragonHeart (1996)

Previously on The Raven Trigger part 2: Umbrah, Melzakorn and Belaria slew a dragon outside the cabin of their old mentor. They entered seeking a tome of dark magic. Deep in the subfloors of the cottage in a room of skeletons they find the evil book.

 

Join Ken Breese, Brian Jones, and Giaco Furino as they venture into the a fantasical world of adventure. This week they are playing Fiasco from Bully Pulpit Games using the Dragon Slayers playset.

 

To learn more about how Fiasco is played check out our primer episode.


The characters for this game:

Belaria Greenstars (John Holt) - A wizard turned druid, she has given up her magical youth to stop the slow of a great evil.

 

Melzakorn (Giaco Furino) - The dark tome is within his grasp - but so many obstacles continue to arise.

 

Umbrah (Ken Breese) - A hulking golem who may be breaking the hold of its creator and master.

 


The grid for this game:

 

Between Giaco and John: there is a war between them, they each have a scar the other gave them.

Between Ken and Giaco: they've a magical connection as creator and golem.

Between John and Ken: they have shared adventures and have in the past been rescuer & rescued.

There is a NEED to fly before that realize who you really for.

There is also a Location from the past their wizard mentor's cottage, looted after his death. 

There is one OBJECT in the mix: a trophy- a tome of dark rituals.
