Owlbear Run
Cost: $0.00
Level: 5

First Session: Saturday -- September 7th, 2013 -- 6:00 PM
[Eastern Time]

Approx. Length: 3 sessions

Every summer, Duke Hightower holds a competition quite different from the traditional jousting and archery tournaments held by similar lords of his station. The rules of his tournament change from year to year, and, to oversee the games, the duke has appointed two wizard brothers who help choose the setting and create the rules and challenges of the competition.
This year the competition is called the “Owlbear Run,” an overland race that requires each participating team to escort a live owlbear from the town of Telvorn to the town of Milvorn. The teams will face a variety of challenges; some are devised by the wizards, others by the competing teams or their sponsors, and some occur entirely at random. All of these Owlbear Run tests are in addition to the challenges inherent in motivating a temperamental owlbear.
Fortune and fame await the first team to cross the finish line, and the local lords sponsoring the race are eager to enlist skilled champions for their causes.

Sep 15, 2013 7:52 PM - Lisa: Oh, I'm also running a short mod this Thursday at 7pm. Sign up on the one-shot games tab.
Sep 15, 2013 2:15 PM - Lisa: If anyone wants to keep in touch, please facebook me at Lisa Reinke. I'm running an intro to d&d game in 2 Saturdays. You don't have to be a noob to play, but noobs get an inflated rsvp score. I'm running the mod "Prey for Smiley Bob," by the same author as Owlbear run. Hope to see some of ya in the future.
Sep 14, 2013 4:56 PM - kentmagus: At Citi Center Atrium and it;s 4:56. Anybody else here yet?
Sep 14, 2013 3:09 PM - Lisa: I'll be wearing jeans, navy shirt, and brown suit jacket. See ya soon.
Sep 13, 2013 11:20 PM - Lisa: See you all tomorrow, at 5 p.m., in the Citi Center Atrium.
Sep 13, 2013 11:18 PM - Lisa: If only you can get the attention of a rich noble, maybe they will hire you to join their court permanently, or at least, pay you royally for a show. Seeing as you have no business at the leek festival, you pack up camp and head out. You hear rumors that Duke Hightower is in the small town of Milvorn. But how will you even get audience with such an important figure? You'll have to do something great to get his attention, but what? You're sure something will come to you.
Sep 13, 2013 11:12 PM - Lisa: As seasoned performers, you've been traveling on the festival circuit for some time now, putting on shows in each small town holding a harvest festival or mermaid parade. Last year, you were killing it. This year, you can't get anyone to come and see your sword swallowing and trapeze artistry. That is because a new troupe has joined the circuit, Liniel's Fey du Soliel Band. They've stolen all your customers, and you are badly in debt. You don't think you can keep going much longer.
Sep 13, 2013 6:28 PM - Kyle: My friend is coming. She's a Pathfinder person but she'll pick it up fast. Do me a favor and text me when you arrive and let me know where you are in the lobby. 914-282-4722.
Sep 13, 2013 12:14 AM - Lisa: Kyle, feel free to bring someone. I can play with up to 6 people. I just tend to limit it to four because I prefer smaller tables.
Sep 8, 2013 6:56 PM - Kyle: Thanks! I'll try to talk my friend into coming too. I don't think the site will let us add names now, so please post if additional people will be playing so we don't get extra people there who can't play. See you there!
Sep 8, 2013 2:42 PM - Lisa: Yeah, I don't have a problem with that Kyle. My hope is that we can knock this out in 2 sessions rather than 3.
Sep 8, 2013 2:06 PM - Kyle: I just realized on the 21st I'll be in Jersey for a wedding. Any chance we can skip a week?
Sep 8, 2013 1:09 PM - Lisa: Hi Guys. We are definitely on for next Saturday. Turns out, I'm not working that day like I thought, so we can start earlier or later if you like. If we start earlier, we might be able to get through a good amount of the adventure, if the endurance is there.
Sep 5, 2013 1:46 AM - Konch: We're only 1 below the limit anyway, I vote waiting till the end of Friday, before pushing it.
Sep 4, 2013 5:35 PM - Lisa: I'm going to push this game back one more week to see if there is more interest. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Sep 2, 2013 6:21 PM - Kyle: If you change the days i might have to drop out, keep us informed!
Aug 27, 2013 5:11 PM - Lisa: At Citi Center. I moved first meeting up to 6 p.m. Might change days as there doesn't seem to be much interest in a Saturday evening game.
Aug 26, 2013 11:57 PM - kentmagus: The where box seems to be empty.
Aug 26, 2013 3:09 PM - Lisa: Time changed to 6pm for the Sept. 7th game.
Aug 24, 2013 10:40 PM - Kyle: I'd love to play this game, any chance the first session can start at 530 or 6? I'm playing at the meetup group at the stratagist.
Aug 20, 2013 6:48 PM - Seth: Ugh I would LOVE to play in this one but I am gone for the first two sessions! Sounds like fun! Enjoy!
Aug 20, 2013 5:26 PM - Lisa: THIS IS A D&D 4e GAME. :)
Aug 20, 2013 2:43 PM - Lisa: It's even possible to get through this adventure without pulling out a sword (though unlikely). Therefore, I am going to pull DM power and force your hand on character creation a bit. You are a troupe of traveling circus performers. Therefore, build a character that is something circus-y. Ex. bearded lady, dancing bear and trainer, juggler. You get the idea. The fun of this one will not be in the combat, but in your performance.
Aug 20, 2013 2:39 PM - Lisa: This adventure was written by Christopher Perkins and Steve Townshend. Owlbear Run isn't typical of most of the published adventures I've read. It's lighthearted and random instead of moody and dramatic. There's a lot of role-play, puzzle solving, plotting, and strategy.
