Hooks: Tomb of Horrors

      “Durnan cannot possibly be human. He’s owned the Yawning Portal for more years than most of us can remember, and he’s always the only one behind the bar. Between the trying-too-hard bards and the brawling barbarians and the clerics that come in on a mission to save us from ourselves, I don’t know how he does it.” I winked and waved the two good fingers on my left hand at the old coot,...

Hooks: Against the Giants

        I limped away from the cloud of dust and debris that had formerly been a Thayan stronghold, and for what felt like the millionth time I assured myself that I would never again interfere in the affairs of the dread Red Wizards. Their Doomvault was gone and yet somehow I knew that no amount of therapy (short of, perhaps, a potent remove curse spell from a friendly wizard) would ever erase those memories from...

Hooks: Dead in Thay

        This world is full of dangers and treasures, stories that are just waiting to be told and legends that want to be created.

The headline was in large...

Hooks: Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan

        “Durnan, the perpetually scowling proprietor of the Yawning Portal Inn, harrumphed as a he pushed his broom sullenly across the floor. He seemed to be muttering something about druids and feathers. As I took my seat at the bar he gave no indication that he would be attending to me any time soon. Instead, a portly half-elf scurried over to the taps and produced a frothy, chilled bronze mug full of the...
