Well that time has finally arrived - the last game of our year long campaign. Unfortunately, two of our members were unable to attend. Our final game was determined several weeks ago - The Library scenario. And several of us spent many nights making bookcases.
|Bookcase and pile of rotting books - Hey, who threw a copy of Frostgrave on the pile? So rude!|
|Another bookcase and a map table|
|Another bookcase and a new treasure token|
And we decided that in addition to everyone bringing three treasure tokens, we all bring three small "Secret Santa" gifts as well to be given out for each treasure a wizard managed to recover.

|The table it all its glory|

Knabe's Arch Nemesis Kodak's report Frostgrave Campaign: Game 11
Elsa the Elementalist's report Silence in the Library
And now for Knabe's Report
The excitement and dread of going underground had certainly distracted Knabe and Vogel. Between the two of them, they both managed fail casting Raise Zombie, Reveal Secret, and failed one attempt at Brew Potion. Knabe did manage to brew a single potion of Strength and Vogel was able to summon a Snow Leopard to his side which he dubbed Fleck V. Knabe reached into the potion cabinet and gave a Potion of Invisibility to Vogel and Daggit, a Potion of Burrowing to Pilum, and took a Potion of Healing for himself. A fox was taken from the kennel (Spent 10 gc to hire a new war hound) to join the group as they departed their base.
After removing a few large boulders and other rubble, Knabe and crew found what appeared to be a stairway heading underground. They cautiously moved down until they reached a battered old wooden door. Surprisingly, it was not locked and only required the strong shoulder of Keinegnad to swing open.
Knabe and Vogel both failed at casting Raise Zombie - to the extent that both took a point of damage. Knabe tells Daggit to drink his potion and scout ahead. So with a quick gulp, Daggit fades from view. Vogel asks Pilum to try his potion. Pilum downs the strange concoction (Potion of Burrowing) and finds he is able to walk right through the side of the passage - and disappears. Worried, Vogel thinks to himself, "I hope he found another room, I forgot to tell him the potion has a limited distance." The rest of the party moves deeper into the library and spread out in three directions.
|Knabe's merry men (and animals) move out to explore|
|Knabe cast Fog as the rest of the warband spreads out|
The Fog didn't last very long. Knabe tries another attempt to Raise Zombie, and again miscasts the spell, and again takes more damage. Faenger climbs down from the bookcase.
|Faenger grabs an Urn while Knabe covers the hallway|
|Knabe takes down Sister Janet's Infantryman|
|Fleck and friends spots Sister Janet - she casts Elemental Ball|
|Fleck and friends get toasted|
|The Doctor's thieving warband members stealing Knabe's treasure|
when "Surprise".....or should it be "CROOAAAKKK"
|The toads prevent the theft|
|A view of the action|
|Knabe kills the wraith creature know as the Vashta Nerada|
|An ice toad hops towards Vogel|
|One dead ice toad|
|Knabe, Daggit, and Uhlmann just after the wraith has been pushed away|
|A final group shot|
What a great game. As usual, most of the wandering monsters appeared at my end of the table, including two of the three wraiths. But this just made things more interesting.
Knabe finished the campaign as the highest level wizard - Level 34 with Kodak coming in second (Note: as it should be - Knabe)
Time for a small hiatus for this group of Frostgrave players. We plan to start a new campaign with new wizards after the first of the year. Time to start painting a new warband and figuring out what wizard school I'll be using next time.
Thanks for reading along as we journeyed through the ruins of Felstad. I hope you all tune in next year for the new campaign. Enjoy the holidays!!
