Cow Bell and Reap Tracker Adventure 2 Part 1

This adventure is still in progress.

Cow Bell's Uncle Larry, who now rules the Kingdom of Am and is somewhat evil, summons the heroes to the court and requests that they defend the border village which I forgot the name of against the hostile forces of the forest of Nos.

He gives them a squad of 100 of his best soldiers and the king's seal which means that if anyone disobeys them, lightning will shoot down from the sky and kill the offenders.

They travel to the village and find it embroiled in a nightly war against zombies from the forest. Unknown to the heroes, the High Priest from the previous adventure is in league with the forces of death and controls the zombies who are attacking.

The heroes track the zombie forces into the forest and find a cave they are coming from. They enter and find a portal which the Reap Tracker's horse/dragon sniffs out for them. The portal leads to the northern swamp of doom where the ancient black castle lies with the stone golem pyramid. Selky has mind controlled the High Priest and taken control of the 4 invincible elemental forces of the land to destroy the kingdom.

A new hero joins the group. She's a telekinetic, but apart from that I forgot. They have a fight with some stone golems, but the dragon eats them and gets indigestion. Cow Bell digs with a shovel and finds a scroll that gives him visions of a fairy girl who tells him they cannot attack the evil castle without the 4 elemental weapons scattered across the lands.

They split their forces into the Desert of Flame and travel to the Vale of Ghosts where they recover the wind whip. Next, they travel into the frostlands and reclaim the water scimitar of healing from the bottom of a lake.

Air elementals attack Cow Bell, but he flies around the world 5 times and then ignites them with his laser eyes in a factory filled with gunpowder.

At this point, we had to break up the session so this adventure is to be continued...

Challenger Cow Bell and Reap Tracker Campaign Adventure 1

By request, here is the summary of one of my currently running Challenger campaigns:

Episode 1: Adventure 1 Reap Tracker and Cow Bell Campaign.

The two heroes are a super-man look-alike named Cow Bell instead of Kal-El and a hunter/tracker named the Reap Tracker who never reveals her true name to anyone.

The players used an outdated version of Challenger to give themselves super powers and made an NPC for their party who is a first level healer/pirate who has infinite uses of the Raise Dead power.

The evil tyrant king of Am requests the players help in rooting out assassins in his court. The players show up and stop an assassination attempt in the throne room. They resurrect the assassin and find out that it could be either the court wizard or the high priest who is responsible. The court wizard is Selky the Illusionist.

Meanwhile, Cow Bell is seeking a blue magical stone from his people lost somewhere in the city. They find the stone and his people show up to steal it from him. When they return to the castle one of the king's three daughters is dead. They resurrect her and suspicions fall on the High Priest.

The players attack at midnight on the rooftop and find out the High Priest has the stone. The evil wizard of the court attacks the High Priest and they discover the king himself is evil as well. The Reap Tracker gets a huge dragon somehow and there is a battle against Selky's illusions which the players lose and still survive. They crash the dragon into the castle and defeat the evil king.

Cow Bell's Kryptonian Uncle Larry takes over control of the kingdom and the two heirless princesses who are still alive (one died under the bed somehow and didn't get resurrected) follow Cow Bell around like groupies.

As reward, the Reap Tracker now has a huge dragon which can turn into a hippogriff or a horse at will and only needs to eat one piece of silver a day to stay alive. It can also breath: fire, acid, and ice and travels at 1,000 miles per minute.

End of Adventure One.

Challenger Supplements Update

Hi everyone, I know that Kingdoms of Sileeria has been in the works forever, but I just wanted to let you know that I haven't forgotten about it. I am still in contact with the artist and it's in the works. It might not be as fancy as the time it took would indicate, but it's still on the agenda.

Someone also requested more adventures for Challenger. That's on my brain as well. I am a very linear person and I'd like to get Sileeria done first. I haven't forgotten, but I am still not sure if it will happen for sure. I just think it's a good idea.

By request, there is a new forum up on the site here. It is freeware so I am not sure I totally trust it, but I finally have an official forum up for Challenger so yay.

Work has been busy so I am mostly writing from my mobile device. If you notice weird typos or a lack of my usual pictures and links, that's probably the reason why.

Thanks for reading. Please enjoy Challenger and all the content of interest on the website!
