Illyria Game Two – Against the Cult of the Reptile God! – Dreams in the Lich House

New Post from Dreams in the Lich House Illyria Game Two picked up back in the waterside city of Fraus, on the northwest of Lake Laconic.  The players met Nicodemus, the thieves’ guild master, at the Flying Trout on the waterfront, and gave over the relics they recovered and claimed their share.  They had also […]
