 +====== Behind the Scenes ======
 +**Date:​** ​ THU13MAR2014
 +**DM's Notes:​** ​ I desperately need to remember to get a small clock that I can see while I'm behind my DM screen. ​ There'​s a giant, three foot across clock right behind my seat, but I can't see it to pay attention to it.  Since we game on Thursday nights and we all work the next morning, we have to wrap things up at a reasonable time.  Ross and Paul wanted to keep playing from last session, but without Sam we didn't have the right team members. ​ Keeping things episodic will have to be enforced for awhile, I think, until they'​ve got the characters they want and a stable group setting. ​ With Sam not there, Sommer brought in a dwarven rune priest.

 +==== Ross (Yurok) ====
 +I'm writing a summary from Yurok'​s point of view for this latest recap, and Paul has written a recap on the orc plateau adventure, so we can post those in addition to what you have here.
 +"That would be AWESOME!"​ -Joe (DM)
