Ghost Archipelago: The Abandoned Tower (Part One)


On one hand I can’t believe it’s been five days since an update, but on the other hand and on reflection I can. I had to chair a council meeting with 53 angry parishioners.

So, Jim’s suggestion of a gaming session was very timely once I’d slept off that event.

Rather than a simple head to head, I managed to find a scenario we had scenery and monsters for. The Abandoned Tower.(p110 off the GA rulebook)
