Griffin Isle: Trinkets of the Gods


"Trinket: a small ornament; a thing of little value."

Merriam Webster




Being an interactive story told in multiple parts set in a place that can be quietly forgotten if things go badly.



Betrayal, murder, a god with an attitude problem, ego-stroking, all-powerful artifacts, time travel, redemption and, naturally, the end of all things™

All of which brings us to encounter one.



Written and run by the Ellis Brothers, the team that brought you "Oh my god, the house is on fire! Oh wait, we left the smoke machine on".

If they can get over their "creative differences", that is.



Coming Spring 2010, circa Max 500, depending on interest. Please let us know by replying.



“Trinket", noun: Small ornament, an item of little value
Oxford English Dictionary

"If the Blue Mana Dragon did have a trove of treasure she didn't want, don't you think I would know about it? Now knock it off, I'm retired. RETIRED."
George, Elemental Lord of Lightning

"Sure, it exists. And the Windsword too. Just like the 'Daggers of Light and Truth' and 'The Swords of Wayland'! Hilarious. The very idea is laughable.”
Jander Sunstar

“I'll ask them if you like. But they tend to get a bit annoyed being asked to confirm the existance of a children's story. The spirits are like that."
Watching Owl

Who knows how you first heard the legend of Griffin Isle and it's remarkable treasure, but it's driving you to distraction. Funny thing is, it's not in any official record. No book, map or encyclopedia. No Seer can pinpoint it's location, no spell or device so far wrought has told you any more than you currently know: It doesn't exist.

In fact, it's enough to put you off, if it wasn't for your dreams; A Griffin, it's ivory wings tipped with silver, wheeling high about a mountain made of solid gold, a bronze key pulsing with energy around it's neck. And in the distance, always just out of vision, something black as ebony sackcloth. Terrible. And waiting.

Griffin Isle: Trinkets of the Gods
A land without heroes just got some. You. Good luck everybody.

Coming Spring 2010, depending on interest
Written and run by the Ellis brothers, the team that brought you: “Oh my god the house is on fire... oh wait, we left the smoke machine on”
Creative differences allowing.

thanks for the responses all.

We're looking at kicking this off mid March (14th or 21st depending on other bookings) due to constraints on free time (read the wives won't let us play Saturdays) this will be a Sunday run campaign.

Quite selfishly perfect for me as I can only do Sundays. Although, luckily not due to wife related issues... :-)

Really good initial Sales post! Very keen to play.

It'd be good to get likely characters from people who are interested, so I can include character specific ideas in the writing process. Doesnt need to be hard and fast yet, but characters with a background (if even only a few lines) will get more out of it.

keep your eyes peeled for more sales pitches next week smile.gif

For me it will truly depend on the booked threshold of the dungeon as I will then be able to work out if I am playing something existing in character wallet or "new".

The last campaign was max table 12 so anywhere south of that works.

Seriously though and not to cop out, but we'll be guided by the players. We were thinking somewhere around max 250 or 500. We could do more or less, depending on what people want. We'd even toyed with straight 8

As a straw-man, how does max 250 work for people?

This sounds good to me, and the 2 char's I have are 0 pts and 250 pts. So the low pts cap is good for me, and I can only play Sundays too smile.gif
