My first post here, I started playing not long time ago and well firstly I played without update 1.2 and not knowing how to apply hacks to the games. Anyway now I think i got most of the things I need right and that I will be able to play trough the games which are most interesting. So here is the short story about it and it may for now include spoilers for Game02, B2 Keep on the Borderlands and Game21, I6 Ravenloft by Ray Dyer, also please forgive my a bit barbaric english and well my older laptop which doesnt like to type letters g and h:).
Storms Adventuring Guild
is a guild of adventurers that started to work in service of good, firstly as an adventuring company consisted of a few brave adventurers and later to develop into a secretive group known only to very few important and influential people. Organization of the guild is rather simple, and it consists of adventuring parties that are named by number they were created. Also position in the guild is acknowledged by the profession status and it is tracked by the time of joining the guild, as a first in the profession, second, third ect

Journal of the Adventuring Company 1:
This group started as a group of volunteers for help in defending a border outpost in a Game Setting: Little Keep on the borderlands, The Realm Game 2. They started by cleaning the forests of goblins and kobolds, then went into a nearby swamp and defeated local lizardmen tribe and buried remains of an adventurer thou helping an elf whom they met in the inn of Keep. On the way back they found remains of another adventurer and found a magical scroll in his inventory wich they returned to the mage from the Keep who was searching it. All that time forest and world around acted a bit strange as it was disturbed and twisted by some evil magic. But with help of the mage they fixed situation (till this time i couldnt get the scroll as i was playing without patch 1.2:)).
Then they started real adventuring set up to explore the rest of the surrounding woods and they found a family of evil giants and later their treasure too, and also a cave of a dragon but decided not to fight it as it was probably a more than could they take. Then they defeated a kobold tribe cleaning them from the forest which they were prized by the people in the Keep, and also fought hobgoblin tribes from which they released a few human prisoners and returned them to Keep.
Later they stumbled into minotaur maze and killed one after which they returned to Keep. But on they way back the strange mist came upon the land and they found a warm Inn to visit on their way. While drinking they were approached by a gipsy from a tribe of Vistani who invited them to Barovia, by a letter from mayor of te village. They accepted invitation and soon were in Barovia talking to mayor about te undead menace in this province and teir probably undead lord named Count Von Zarovich wich was, as the story are suspecting, a vampire. After a visit to mayors daughter lady Ireena Kolyana, adventurers set on a journey to Ravenloft Castle trough Svalich woods wich was full of cursed undeads of worst kind imainable.
Always in fear wath will attack them and desperately figthing for their lives with last strenght they barely made it to the Castle on te hill above the village by cleverly maping forest path and noting in it two bridges wich they crossed. After second bridge they found a carriage wich took them to Castle of the Count Strahd.
Castle Ravenloft was a sight for itself. Count was very polite and told them during the dinner how he was good ruler and that the real problem is in the corrupted villagers who doesn't like him and their leader mayor who tax them and take teir money for himself. Influenced by Counts charms party returned to Barovia to deal with the problematic mayor and is daughter followed by a unit of counts undead minions. Luckily they realized in time that villagers were inoccent and fought the real enemy, and after the terrible battle they barely survived but now never more determined to bring counts evil to the end.
Ireena Kolyana joined them and they went to the Castle together. They searched the place and found strahd in his guest room but after tey tried to attack him he vanished. Then they found an altar to rest and after that searched te rest of the castle battling its undead minons like garoyles, zombies and other evil things. They later found strahds diary with explanation of is vampiric history, and also they talked to his imprisioned human clerc who said something about a holy amulet in the crypts.
Searching trough castle dungeons they couldnt find crypts but were teleported to higher levels of the castle where they fought two servant vampires and defeated them with their last strenght. They finaly could rest there and heal to continue on their way to the heart and highest part of the castle, Strahds tower were they met him surrounded with hundreds of evil bats. Strahd was too strong, fighting him was bloody and only a wish spell could save them and teleport away from a magic using vampire who could burn them with magic thunders and fires as good as he could fight them with his evil weapons.
They woke up somewhere in the night with a desire for revenge, but for now their main concern was how to survive and heal up and to chase of those bad memories of the Castle Ravenloft and its evil (here is a nice tune
about it also
Conclusion: I had a great time playing and well i think in the future i should write a journal while playing
i also thought about doing video sessions with this tool
but i guess i will leave it for sometime later as i am sure i wouldnt do it as good as here
though i am sure i would have a great time role playing while gaming which probably should include some character background. For now i am playing with Adventuring Company Two, and planing to start some more Ravenloft adventures with this one
and also to install and play OA.
