Welcome to The Delvers!

A character driven actual play Labyrinth Lord campaign journal. Vicariously join two girls and their mom around the gaming table as they delve into the world of Dungeons & Dragons, while driving their Dungeon Master into realms of unknown madness.

In Search of the Unknown

Begin at the beginning,” the King said gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

†A Note on Letter Codes

Each campaign is broken up using mock module codes. However, the sandbox is an uncanny thing to map; often the two campaigns and one shots overlap.

For instance, the second campaign starts on the same day that Starlight and Alina leave Naerie. There are also character cross-overs and sometimes you only get the complete picture when another campaign is referenced. I do my best to point this out when it occurs.

  • TDα – The Delvers first campaign.
  • TDβ – The Delvers second campaign.
  • LLΩ – Sue’s first posted dungeon crawl.
  • TDξ – Recorded game sessions.
  • One shots use the standard module codes.
