Welcome to the
We are a group of 15 fabulous roleplayers who are exploring the world of Humblewood, home to birdfolk and humblefolk alike. The encroaching fires of the Scorched Grove and growing unrest amongst the bandits threaten the peace of the Wood. Here, you'll find stories of our player's adventures, as shared at the Hawk's Nest Tavern of Alderheart.

I’ve known these folks for five days now, and I’m still not sure what to make of them. People are opportunities, and the ones who don’t realize this are the ones who will lose in the end. These past five days, I’ve met and talked to more folks than I would in an entire year. I’ve fought together with strangers I ran into only hours ago, and they willingly offer me support, healing potions, inspiration spells, gold, and loot, all while knowing how easily I can steal from any one of them. Either they underestimate me or they are incredibly stupid, but I don’t think that’s the case. They trust easily, and I have everything to lose by staying with them. I know this. I know.

Went on our way with cat lady who turned out to be even more annoying than I expected. Group traveling was very inefficient, especially on the main road -- why I travel alone. Got swarmed by bats and missed my first shot. Random axe flew by from unseen outsider and missed the bats. Lots of folks whiffing attacks on bats of all things. I started getting pissed, so I swatted the bats down with my daggers.
Axe turned out to belong to a fancy looking vulpin. Looked a bit like Frey but seemed to also dislike her. Couldn’t decide if trustworthy but party seemed fine with her. Group seems very vulnerable to bad people; they seem to only recognize obviously bad folk. The fact that they trust me is a bad sign.

Was hitting up gallus town looking for shops that trade. Everywhere was closed. Rested for a bit by fountain and spotted the flamboyant, charlatan luma of all birdfolk lurking around by a bush. Some strig stumbled into town all burnt up and collapsed behind me. Didn’t have anything valuable on her but I bandaged her up anyway since there was a raptor with a bow and arrow nearby staring at us. Raptor and I carried her to town elder, an old gallus.
Some hedge and armored raptor randomly showed up to commotion. Gallus asked us to send a message about nearby fires to Alderheart with whole group. Luma turned up to the sound of reward -- typical. Gallus’ desperation over fires convinced me, but prospect of reward also sounded nice. Also was headed to Alderheart anyway. Hedge was naively eager to help -- definitely trustworthy. Raptors seemed to be former soldiers who knew each other -- not trustworthy so far.
Players have constant opportunity to create characters and explore them in an open world setting. PCs drive the objective of each session, and have the flexibility to drop in and out of different parties. It’s too much fun to say no to.
