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

Now in addition to the surprise of a zombie in the closet, the party found themselves face to face with a fiery haired young human woman who had vaulted through the window.

Episode 91: 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.

Castle Mystery, Part IV: Tridents, Toads, Toilets, and Trespass

Their long rest complete, the party decided to take care of some business before setting back out into the castle. Pistachio had been able to build a new steel defender using miscellaneous parts from the weapon and armor strewn about the store room.

Castle Mystery, Part III: Chaotic Combat, Collected Captives, and Close Calls

The party immediately began attempting to free the trapped figures from the stasis pod, though they were harried by the sounds of snarls echoing up from the well and heavy footfalls encroaching from the stairs.

Castle Mystery, Part II: Reunions, RP frog business, and reckless consequence combat

While the party proceeded to explore the rest of the castle, Cithrel and Dahlia doubled back and freed Xinas from his stasis pod. Upon questioning, Cithrel offered information regarding her research into the missing villagers, the premises, and the previous tenants who mysteriously disappeared a few years prior - the Chasteler family.

Recent Lore


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.
