Streets of Avalon. Two – Lamplighter

Last time on the streets of Avalon our rogues find themselves with a box everyone seems to want after getting into a brutal fight with a hammerite and her thugs. They have Violet the hammerite bound and gagged but shapeshifting creatures appear to try and take box. Our rogues fight off a few of them but it seems there are more in the Iron Wheel. Vassar finds himself following a cat for answers.

Welcome to the Streets of Avalon, an urban city actual play created and DMed by Brett B who puts the B in Gaming and BS, with Tom Flanagan of the Knights of the Night, Kevin Lovecraft – the glue of MMP and G&BS, Chris Sniezak of MMP, and Emily Morgan of She’s a Super Geek. Enjoy and please, provide feedback as we’re learning and going to get better at this as we move forward.
