Feed Back & Recollections

As I am wont to do all the story arcs in this Era have some sort of play on the theme of the name. The first story dealt with flying ships, the second story dealt with Yuan-Ti and other cold blooded races. I also used the other meaning of the phrase and the adventurers traveled to new places and met new cultures. During this story arc the group traveled from one corner of the adventuring area to the other. It gave the players a chance to expand their resources and contacts and for me to show off a few of the details I had previously created.
