No Purple Mountain Tonight

No gaming tonight.  The two middle school trollspawn had to attend a school dance.  Instead I have a story to share.  This is a true story.

My oldest two trollspawn received their five-week grades in the mail last night.  The second oldest excitedly ripped open his envelope, eyes rapidly scanning the page.  "Wow," he said.  "What did I get a 106 in?"  The oldest, reading over his shoulder, replied, "That's your homeroom number."

Kopfihagen Island

Purple Mountain is just a dungeon, with no setting.  While I want the majority of play to happen in the dungeon, I also want there to be some interaction with the outside world.  As such, I've decided to use a made-for-T&T setting.  I've placed Purple Mountain on Kopfihagen Island, on the road between the city of Grimehaven and the fishing village of Fishhook, just south of Little Mountain.  Information about this region can be found in issues of the Elder Tunnels Summer-Fall (Halloween) 2010 and Summer 2011.  I plan to flesh this out more in play as needed, with permission and assistance of Tom Kopfy of Peryton Publishing.
