||The Red Wing Boys’ Correctional Facility was also a mental hospital for the crimminally insane minors incarcerated therein. In a desperate attempt to lower the amount of fights, drugs and brain surgery were utilized. The project was a failure. Due to the record number of violent incidents and a killing spree by one of the prisoners, the facility was closed.
||Three missing paranormal investigations, The Ghost Hunters, had spent the night locked in the prison. Our investigative team searched the prison a few days later and found themselves trapped therein. Things became strange in the prison as the walls dripped with blood and strange mouths appeared in the solitary confinement cells. The investigators witnessed the suicide of groundskeeper, fought off a now insane Ghost Hunter and destroyed a crazed creature in a straight jacket.
A benevolent spirit gave the group advice on how to deal with Bob Dylan’s Ghost. The Ghost of Bob Dylan played his song, The Walls of Red Wing, for the corpses of the remaining two Ghost Hunters as the investigators began their attack. Once the Ghost of Bob Dylan was destroyed, the prison returned to normal and the investigators were free to leave.

Bob Dylan’s Ghost
The Red Wing Boys’ Correctional Facility was also a mental hospital for the crimminally insane minors incarcerated therein. In a desperate attempt to lower the amount of fights, drugs and brain surgery were utilized. The project was a failure. Due to the record number of violent incidents and a killing spree by one of the prisoners, the facility was closed.
A cougar has been killing hikers and bikers on the Cannon Valley Trail. The grisly deaths don’t add up and the locals are beginning to become alarmed. A call to arms has given sportsmen the opportunity of a life time, the chance to take down one of the big cats, legally! Will the animal rights activists and the local veterinarian get to it first and knock the cat out with a tranquilizer dart or will the poor beast be slain?
The Mississippi Monster
The Pearl of the Lake, a Mississippi River paddle boat, sank during a freakish storm on Lake Pepin. The crew has not been recovered, but Life to The Max host Greg Thunder’s body did was ashore. Greg Thunder and his team returned to Lake Pepin to film a sequel to their popular 68th episode about Peppi, the Lake Pepin Monster. Was this an act of nature or is the mythical Mississippi Monster to blame for the deaths of amateur paranormal investigators?

This is the game I’ll be running for The Game Master’s Faire this year.
Dark Sun 3.5 campaign played by Nathan, Russell Sid on Saturday, April 16th, 2011. GM’d by Melissa.
Sardis disappeared, taking Jaden’s sister’s body with him after declaring that he was needed elsewhere.
Deep in the underhold of the captured pirate ship, a prisoner was found bound and gagged. The sun cleric, Aeotos was briefly questioned and welcomed to the crew due to his polite manners.
A wanderer, Azurus, walked across the silt and decided to join in the crew’s quest to the ruins of Guistenal.
Tarak spotted pirates during his night watch. Jaden, Passk and Shallovar manned the silt skimmer during an attack by two pirate vessels. The ships floated silently in the night, each controlled by a kenetecist. As the battle ensued, Passk’s newly captured ship was uprighted by a spell of reverse gravity and then destroyed by a spell of detonate. Fortunately, one of the enemy pirate ships survived the confrontation and was confiscated by Passk and crew.
Tarak and his “sand gator” shared some of their pirate corpses with a hungry Giant, avoiding an unnecessary confrontation.
Dark Sun 3.5 campaign played by Russell, Patrick and Sid on Saturday, April 9th, 2011. GM’d by Melissa.
Three unlikely companions met in the city of Nibeney.
Tarak arrived in the city shortly after rescuing some elves in the desert and promising to finish their mission with the Veiled Alliance.
Jaden crossed the tablelands in search of his spell casting sister, an evil sorceress.
Sardis found himself returned to Athas but still far from his home.
There were rumors of ancient ruins nearby (and treasure!). Items of ancient magics were showing up in the Elven Market of Nibenay. The local templars appeared to be interested in acquiring the items for themselves.
Once the three agreed that there were many interesting things going on in the ruins of Guistenal (and treasure!), they decided to travel there with a dwarven pirate named Passk. The Silt Stalkers, now led by Jaden’s sister, attacked the crew’s silt skimmer and combat ensued. Victory went to Tarak, Jaden, and Sardis. Much cargo and booty was had by all.
Musings of the Dark Powers – GM’s Notes
As the crowd of nobles, guards and servants evacuated the house, the party of adventurers split up.
The Grande Archduchesses floated away from the city with Marcus in persuit. The two mist-formed vampires seemed locked in a perpetual race with no winner, until the Grande Archduchesses reformed in a field outside of a small village. Marcus followed suit and the two began to trade banter back and forth.
Graven left the house, headed away from the chaos. He stumbled into an old man, leaning heavily on a wall. The old man labored to breath. He was one of the slaves that Graven recently released from the Grande Archduchess’s cells. The man introduced himself as Vicomte Perrigrew Dubois and he promised Graven much gold and a great treasure if he would help him escape. Graven assisted the old man as they headed towards one of the nicer neighborhoods in the city. The two discussed many things along the way, including the rumors of a possible heir to the previous king. It seemed that when Amin slew the Valois royal family, the youngest daughter, Jeanna, may have escaped or been spared. Graven considered this as they traveled across town.
As she raced down the street, away from the disasterous party, Aeris heard the sounds of footsteps behind her. One of the Avignon Defenders was hot on her trail. As the half-demon passed a dark alleyway, a mysterious woman grabbed the city guard and slew him with uncanny skill. Aeris could not resist her curiosity and watched the woman who was dressed like a man in leather pants and a finely tailored shirt loot the body.

Musings of the Dark Powers – GM’s Notes
As Aeris, Graven, Sardis and Y’lene arrived at Bothwell’s, the local street urchin met Graven outside and pulled him aside for a favor.
The remainder of the group went inside the social club. Sardis dominated their prisoner and sent him up to one of their rooms. Meridius was already waiting for them in a private dining room. A quiet meal was had by all, except for Meridius who did not eat. Sealed messages were waiting at the hotel for several members of the party, each handed to them by the club’s staff.
Meridius had been invited to a party at the Grande Archduchess’s chateau that evening. Aeris also expressed that she was expected to attend. Since it was possible that the king would be there, it was agreed by all that going to the party would be beneficial. Y’lene complained that the event would be boring, but she agreed to go none-the-less. Aeris asked Sardis to accompany her and Meridius asked Y’lene the same.
