Frog Hat Club

The ongoing adventures of a group of new D&D players in their first game

Welcome to Telisar. This site is a compendium of information about the Frog Hat Club, a Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition campaign I am running for a few of my friends. We've been playing twice a month (mostly!) since November 2017, and we're still going strong. Below you'll find recent session summaries and lore, including short stories, worldbuilding, homebrew mechanics, and whatever else I come up with. I also maintain a beastiary containing homebrew critters I have used to...entertain the party. Thanks for visiting!   --evilchili

Recent Sessions

Episode 89: The Palace of Ice, Part III

??? Securing the heavy door, the party decided to risk a short rest in the collapsed chamber. Magnus, true to form, immediately fell to napping and was asleep in moments. As the party bandaged wounds and collected their gear, Sirlius was surprised to see Magnus’s recumbent form first flicker, then vanish completely.

Episode 88: The Palace of Ice, Part II

??? Magnus stepped forward to pick up the sword, but out of sorts and more careless than usual, was surprised to find himself engulfed by a Gelatinous Ice Cube, all but invisible in the passageway.

Episode 87: The Palace of Ice, Part I

??? The party left the ruins of Amouradiath, set upon their journey into the heart of Winter itself, there to find the Palace of Ice, the seat of Mab’s power over the Unseelie Court.

Episode 86: Into the Feywild, Part X (Oh, Rats)

??? Hundreds of cranium rats swarmed around the party. To their horror, they merged into a golem with elongated arms, thick legs and a massive central mass all formed of writhing, crawling rats.

Episode 85: Into the Feywild, Part IX

??? Magnus stepped up beside Whisper to observe the shadows moving under the water, but could see nothing. With a shrug he turned his back to the water’s edge, and was promptly snatched up in the jaws of a reptilian horror – the Laughing Hydra, a multi-headed serpent that made its lair in the Laughing Swamps.

Recent Lore

Betrayed

We came for our Lady, though she knew it not. We reject the false balance; Winter is no opposite but a blight, and M– no queen but a guttersnipe whore. We would have freed the Fey of her tyranny and restore the Garden of Chaos, the Rapture of Summer Growth Unending.

The Trials of Gofa the Mighty

Gofa the Mighty came to the mountain fortress of Azam the Seer to demand the knowledge to defeat his enemies. But Azam denied him, for the Seer took little notice of the affairs of the world.

Five Tales of Ara Am Akiir

One It is the year 2392 ME. The town of Kessian, on the shores of the eponymous Lake is happy, prosperous, and safe. Harvests are bountiful, the weather mild and the many dangers of Telisar seem to give the place a wide birth.

The Library of Amouradiath

As you crest the top of the hill, you see a plain of large flowers stretching out before you, something like sunflowers but taller, with droopy blue petals and umber pistils.
