Arrived in Whisper mid-day.
Heading to the Zegaran Adventurer’s Guild
Assistant Guild Master
Getting the Ruby installed
No jobs available for us.
Asked about the RARE office in town
Probably be in this district…
How’s the mainland expansion going?
Pretty good- we’ve got a couple of locations set up in some of the southern towns. Been a process in getting the interest in the towns- more success on the coastal settlements. The further inland we go- we’ll have to prove ourselves.
I guess if we get the resources to make a run for Amawa and your group is available.
We found the RARE shop.
Gentleman behind the counter at a desk.
Yes- we just got some information in that we are looking to leverage.
232gp – Diamond Heart
-232gp
The diamond heart sword. Dark, oily, gleaming wood. The grain runs the length of the blade and vibrant and seems to be still leaving. Heals when damaged. Truly alive and never needs sharpening.
Lion’s Dagger & The Green Shield. Diamond heart. The blade is green and growing. Wielder is heir to the strength of growing things.
Prevailing theory of its location is the weapon has been passing from collector to collector. The latest owner was having it shipped to this location.
2315gp offered for it.
Divinity district is in the centre of ye olde town.
Lady Azana
They point us to one of the temples and describe the rough location and a symbol on the side of the temple. A starburst with wings.
We found the temple.
A priest of some sort with 3 or 4 dozen people sitting in the church.
Listened to the service.
Any chance we could speak to Azana…
You’ve returned! This is great news…

Noble John Hayward
I can appreciate that- here’s some stuff.
Dumbed some stuff on a table…

I’ve recently had some of my property fall into the wrong hands. I have a particular amulet that one of my followers has, uh, gotten killed and it was stolen by a SOB and taken to his fortress.
Roughly between here and Firefeather- about halfway off the road.
Recover the property and kill everyone in the fortress. Not human, does have special powers.
Based on who pulled of the attack on my follower- probably not humans.
It has my symbol on it.
Pointed it out on a map.
Don’t trust anything that he says- he will have a lot of defense.
Her motivation is for – don’t believe anything she has said has been a lie.

Loot:
900 gp
140 pp
Violet Garnet
Obsidian Statue (500 gp)
Copper Anklet (100 gp)

Swung by the ZAG – got our rings with Sapphire & Ruby
Solo job for killin’ a Tyger

Heading three days east
The Codec did not register the DiamondHeart Sword
Checked with C&C – no experience storming the castle.
Third day- hadn’t reached the turn off. Set up camp.

Day of Uni 13th
Looking for the turn off
Eris Nilodian
Couple of hours down the road- winds up the path to the entrance of a fortress.
Couple hundred feet down the spiraling path.
Garreth walked up and knocked on the metal door.
Two individuals appear on the top of the wall and attacked Garreth.
Peculiar looking humanoid with pale gray skin, face berefit of expression, gangly limbs.
50 foot high walls.

Looked at them- nothing useful.
Cast fly on our artillery
Luckily, they opened the gate to attack us.
Rapiers and chainmail

3 nice rapiers and 3 chainshirts
1 nice rapier and chainshirt
2 light crossbows

Wracked my brain- finding the mechanism to open the door.
After beating on it for a while with the portable ram, they flew open.
Coming out is a hoard of
Thick, gray scaly skin. Monstrous in nature. Crude battle axes.

10 crude battleaxes

155gp ea. From Eris buying out the Undead Protection Item
Xaxis donated his share to the group loot.

Asking about the noble John Hayward
Point us to the Ashe district for public record- Hall of records, 4 or 5 scribes
One noticed us…
Yes, are you here to seek information from the records.
Almost all of the Nobles live in the Apex District- but without an invitation, you may not get in- guards at every entrance…
10 minutes he came back- according to our latest census, he lives at the Hayward Estate in the Apex District
Tipped him a gold for his trouble.
We wrote a letter to him, c/o the Zegaran Adventurer’s Guild, to make sure
Paid the delivery person 3 sp to deliver the message.
Hit the road…

Day 1 – 22nd
As we were leaving, I heard:
A very faint sound of a roaring lion coming from in the city:
Cast Locate Object- drove through town and to the docks- do not detect the item.
Bunch of people in the center of two said, I thought I heard a roar from the general direction of the docks…
We headed on…
Kept asking as we headed to the docks. We eventually found a particular Inn that the sounds were coming from…
Parked outside and headed into Lantern’s Rest
We headed in. The inside is empty of people except the bartender and a couple of tavern wenches- cleaning up a mess. We’re closed- there was a fight.
I kicked em out as soon as I could- one was taken over to the Temples to get healed. Some swordsman came in here asking to fight against the strongest warrior- this guy pulled out a weapon and it roared.
He had pretty nice armor- definitely not your typical rabble by any means. Looked possibly ceremonial. Looked nicer than it was practical. He was human. Looked like a lion on the armor.
About 30 minutes ago. Just the guy getting his ass kicked.
Could we get a small barrel of spirits…
Small Cask. 2 ½ gallons. Asked for 2. 1 gold 2 silver.
Xaxis got a bottle of nice wine as well.

Garreth asked around- went towards the center of town.
I followed him while the rest of the party scouted locations and made up fliers.

We gathered information as we went. Some reliable info- seemed to be heading towards the Flame District. Then we didn’t get anymore information.

We all met back at the guild about lunch time. The guards – and the Zegaran’s Adventurer’s Guild- use a training ground in the south part of the city. An OK place for a fight to take place.
We left a message at the guild to redirect them to training fields.
Send Cowain off with 2 gp for ear plugs.

A suspiciously nicely dressed swordsman.
What are your duel terms- first one to unconscious has lost.
To surrender or unconscious. No spells- just enchanted weapons & healing potions.
A crowd has gathered because of the challenge.
What is your name, friend?
Matsuo vs. Garreth
A deafening roar!

(1 gp 8sp change back)

Garreth knocked him down.
He was out- Garreth poured a potion in his mouth.
Well, sir – you have bested me and shown some honor.
The first person I challenged here in town dropped similar to how I fell…

Where’d you get a sword like that?
I received it as a gift from my lord after personally stopping an assassination attempt on the emperor’s life.
Well, um- good fight. I’m obviously outmatched.
We shared a drink.

We offered her sword and 2000gp against his sword.
I guess I should give up the fighter lifestyle if I cannot beat her.
He accepted…
And took down Eris.

So we sweetened the pot- Lynette- agreed to pay 5000 if she won.

Wow- you are NOT what I was expecting.
Here, take it- I quit.
We got the sword!

Went to the Zegara Adventurers Guild
We were hoping to get this sword appraised:
-100 gp
This is a very unique weapon but it is triggering as a plus 1 katana – I could give you 1500gp for it.

Over to RARE
It’s one of a kind
Their history has sort of added extra uniqueness to the item
Typically when we try to make that association- find the story and recreate the aspect behind it.
We sold it to them

+2530 gp
500 gp ea.
+30 gp to group loot

We are persuing another lead- but we need to get a little more info.
In a week or so we should be able to confirm the information.
We have an office in Whisper.
They may have different ones…
This is our main headquarters here…

Year End Celebration is happening tomorrow…
Salerius

The reanimated type of undead- including but not limited too- skeletons and zombies.
Distinguishing characteristics, strengths and weaknesses.

Zombies and skeletons typically require a body. Zombies, because of their rotting flesh, move slower and generally react with less ferocity. They shamble toward you or attack you and in rare cases they may shamble quickly. They’re not pleasant to look at. They don’t typically have any characfteristics of the creature that they come from – if the creature had the ability to phase between planes the zombie wouldn’t be able to. They typically do not react to weapon damage because they don’t feel anything. Slashing weapons are more effective against them.

Skeletons do not have rotting flesh and are not restricted by slow movement as zombies are. Because they have less mass they’re not nearly as hardy as zombies. Because it’s harder to actually hit anything, they’re susceptible to smashing and bludgeoning damage. They do not react to anything cold.

They represent your typical undead traits: no clear way to cause severe wounds to them because things that would kill a living creature do not affect the dead. There is no limit to how old the body for a skeleton can be as long as you have a mostly complete skeleton. Some amount of flesh must still exist to create a zombie.

Sold the two generic lots for 50gp total.

We have a:
Geography Lot – 2 misc bonus
Dungeoneering Lot – 22 (
1 misc bonus)
Religion Lot – 13 (1 misc bonus)

Sigil Cont.

Draconic: Order of the Forked Path
Door is 8 feet tall.
Xaxis opened the door.
20 by 20 with runes on the floor.
Long hallway with a cloud in it. Further along there is a spiral starway.
Xaxis put on the Helm of Comprehend Languages- could not read the runes.
He did a spellcraft check on them.
My detect magic was still active- I stared at the runes.
16 different magical auras.
The most potent is: Moderate.
16 identical auras on each of the auras on the floor.
Did a spellcraft check to determine the school…
Evocation. All evocation.

Door seems to be shimmering and starting to disappear.
Four cracklings lighting with rumbles of thunder. About four feet tall.
I attempted to chop the one in front of me but I’m not sure if it made any difference.
Weird critters were shocking us and then a booming noise.
Got hit by lightning and thunder. Managed to chop one to death and then flew up into the corner.

Flew down the spiral stairway.
Large room- brown rune, green rune, blue rune, red rune, with yellow in the middle.

Mass of humanoid flame- living inferno, dance of heat and flame
Amorphous two eyes and a mouth- a trick of the swirling air
Walking hill- club like hands of jagged stone, two featureless legs
Vortex of water rolls across the ground- never seems to crest or lose their shape. Humanoid shape- pounds with the force of an ocean storm.

Beams shot from all four- a giant figure appears in the center. Looks like a combination of all four.
I backed up, brought up my protection, and cast light of venya.
Lynette managed to kill the fire critter.

Killed the last little one and the big one disappeared.
She went down the steps and I flew down after Eris.
I cast Bear’s Endurance on her then Bull’s Strength.

Garreth pulled the lever…
The door opened.
Three magic circles, a couple of tables, and a chest at the end.
Skeletal creature- hateful crimson lights in its eye sockets- wearing magical robes. Three of them.
Most everyone but me were paralyzed with fear.
I brought back Xaxis who popped two of them. Then I resurganced Lynette who took some shots at the third one.
Garreth and Eris braced the third one as I managed to hit it with one of my light’s of venyas.
We figured they were a variant of the mummy type of undead. Some inconsistencies, but…

Search the monster for loot- detected a sigil on it. Grab the sigil.
Violet Garnet on table- grabbed it.
Chest –
Pile of coins (800 gold)
Anklet (250 gp)
Harp (250 gp)
Amulet * (Leather thong strung with dragon teeth- warm fang amulet- ability to overcome damage reduction) (750 gp)
Lynette –
Closet
Painting (500 gp)
Crystal * (Bright crystal – crystal of life keeping – wards against necromantic and death effect. Lesser – +3 against energy drain, inflict spells, death spells, death effects.) Greater is a plus 5 and may choose to reroll. (5000 greater) (Sell – 500) (Lesser – 950 gp)
Lynette grabbed to two sigils from the two piles of ash
I checked two tables:
Aquamarine armband (250 gp)
Lot of Geography
Lot of History
6 lots of other books
-200 gp for the IDs
800 – 200 + 250 + 250 + 750 + 500 + 250
2600 gp total – 520 gp ea.

We headed out and back to town.
Early afternoon.
Guild master recommended to speak to RARE directly about it.
Place is dusty inside.
Guy with spectacle looks up from the book he was reading.
Yes, we did…
No, you could turn them in.
Is this what you were looking for?
Yes- do you have all three…
Yes.
He’s knocking on the door behind him.
We got a group here that’s got the sigils.
Yes, excellent!
Could you write up a letter?
Let’s talk about payment.
We set aside this as payment for it- they’ve already taken their cut…

Wand of See Invis – 10 charges on it
Amber
Pile of 180 pp

You know, we might have some opportunities for a set number of individuals like yourself.
We follow a model here- we made an exception for the sigils so we wanted to branch out our efforts here.
What we do here is research some rare relics, artifacts, and the like. Sell information to interested parties.
If you recover the objects- buy them back at a premium.
Cost for the information- we will tell you how much we will pay for it.
Not interested in a map or directions to where we got it…

Recovery of Two Weapons of Unique Nature
Shishi-o – information on this for 253 gp and we will pay you 10 times that for recovery of it.
The Simple Bow – 237 gp and will pay 10 times that for it’s recovery.
We got the letter for them.

Wand of See Invis – 10 charges
Amber
180 pp -49 pp = 131pp == 26pp 2 gp ea.

We pay 49 pp for the information on the two items.
Shishi-O – The sword of Lions
Marvelous katana with a blade of bright, immaculate – male lions circling the blade.
Blade is drawn- mighty roar heard for a quarter of a mile.
Location was lost but there are current rumors- wielded somewhere on the north island.

Simple Bow – wooden longbow
World’s greatest archer…
Current location: Maio and the Bow – spent his last days somewhere on Zagara.

With the info in hand we headed back to the guild to liquidate.
Wand & Amber – 600gp

Pull for C&C
100 gp from Xaxis
9 plat 6 gp from Garreth
3 plat from Lynette
100 gp from Eris
1 amethyst from Tharr

The stink of rotten meat segments, multi legged 10 foot long creature
8 writhing tentacles from directly below it’s clacking mandibals and tooth filled maw
Managed to kill 4 of them.
Sketched the creatures.
Lynette flew around and placed garlic around all of the building.

Garreth – opened the door.
The inside is well lit- a number of coffins- and a guy crouched in the corner.
Noble: Did you take care of that stuff outside?
I cast detect undead and headed inside.

I detect undead auras inside.
My name is John Hayward. I was kidnapped against my will by that monster- but there were terrible things out in the graveyard. But you’ve dealt with what’s out there?
I shared I was getting a really strong (overwhelming) aura in here. John said he might be in one of the coffins.

Eventually managed to not kill the noble and discover a stairway inside. Garreth headed down.
I headed down and tossed a daylight pellet in the room.
We all funneled into the stairway…
“Even if you defeat me my master will be back to avenge me!”

I fired both of my lights of Venya at him and dropped him when they hit.
Then we had to deal with Garreth…

We managed to get him down- almost died and then I closed wounds. Rage wore off- and Xaxis cast close wounds. We got him in a cage.

Finally smoked back down and into the coffin.
Xaxis staked him.
Garreth finally regained consciousness and groaned.
I staked him as well.
Eris chopped his head off.

I searched the room.
Secret cache in the bookshelf-

Multifaceted crystal that shines with all the hues of the rainbow *

Did not find any secret passages.
Head and body is separated with two stakes in it’s heart.

Did some healing.

We headed out the two paths- a slightly hidden path or something…
Each side finds a path…
Simple dirt path.
Met in the middle.
In the exact moment- as we both come into view- a large door sparkles into view.
Speculate that there was probably some sort of view blocking magic that works in one direction at a time.

Cont.
Priestess’ Caravan
Before anyone has a chance to speak, Lynette says: Lady Azana, is that you?
LA: I see you are doing better than the last time we met up…
My rampant mage managed to wound me severely but lady Azana happened upon the massacre and was able to heal me back to health.
So, uh- I don’t really know why those creatures attacked me…
Nerull, I shared…
LA: I might have some use for people of your skill level…
Like what? Eris asked.
I suspect that some of my work has drawn the attentions of his followers…
I know of a vampire who has a, uh, graveyard that he hangs out in. I can imagine that my meddling of some of those affairs has attracted his attention- or Nerull himself.
Valentine
Speaking of rewards…
She seems to be an Azimar
Not wearing armor- priestess robes- pretty elaborate
I do not recognize what deity her robes match despite having a pretty solid feeling that
Do you seek magic items or wealth?
Eris
Trezna- nobles founded an order to eradicate all the undead in the Elflands…
Magical Items would be welcome
The surviving guard comes out and places at our feet:
Satchel with 700 gp
2 fire opals
Weird looking diamond and an armband- solid gold band polished into a bright shine.
Vampire:
Justin, give them the map to the vampire’s graveyard
Open it and it’s a very clear of a city and then off from that is a path.
Port City of Inferno
LA: I suspect that my interfering of his affair is the result of the attack you just interfered with.
He can be killed. As far as I know he really doesn’t have much in the way of any minions left.
That region is still pretty unsafe. Some non-desirables tend to frequent his crypt.
You can find me in Whisper when you do. I may have a follow up for you that is even more interesting.
Ask around for me inside the divinity district.
I don’t follow a specific deity- I follow more a specific set of ideologies.
I have the intention of creating a place of worship there- might see if I can rent a space there.
Told her about the Fighter’s Guild

Had the guards drag the corpses out of the road while we buried her dead guards.
4 Guards – 4 Suits of Scalemail & 4 Longswords
Dug graves for them and said a prayer over them.
Knowledge Religion: Some clerics devote themselves to a cause rather than a god or a religious institution or worship.

The rest of the day’s travel was uneventful and found ourselves at the Arrowfall Inn.

Rest of the Trip to Inferno was uneventful.

One job on the adventurer’s board:
Byte off More than you can Chew
Somebody recently imported some very large wolves and they made a mistake ordering them- they would like someone to come and rectify the situation.
Hunting Lodge off to the east- they had assumed these would be good for hunting with but now are being hunted. The way to get there. Take the road towards Whisper half a day- see the trail towards the east from there- another half a day. Solid day’s travel to get there.
Judging from the map- perhaps two hours to get the graveyard.
Asked if he’s heard of the RARE group- yeah, they have a- I guess a- a meetup, a base of operations here in town. There are in the flame district- the same district that we’re in. Shiny scepter deal on the sign.
Anymore reports of undead shenanigans in the area?
I did hear a passing remark about some really large undead looking creatures that were moving to the west heading south.

Heading to the Lodge…
We approached the lodge.
I moved up
heard a loud howling noise.
They look like the wolves we fought before…
After the third one died they shuffled us inside.
I think you got all three of them…
Get in here!

Eris: The guy I was trying to buy them from said they would definitely help in a hunt. Should have realized with all the paperwork I had to sign to get them imported.
Already sent my payment to the adventuring guild- send along this letter.
You are free to spend the night…
Probably get them stuffed- and stewed- got to get my money out of them.

Check the board- any new jobs.
Met up with C&C to see what they learned….
We did find a couple of things. Pretty epic drinking contest- totally professional.
This group does a- what is a good way to put it- they sell information but then they buy back the things the information leads to.
They are trying to collect – relics, artifacts, and those types of hard to find things.
Trying to collect the stuff- for them, or someone else- who knows?
More money selling information then the items itself.
Pay for play- to weed out the casual lookers.
At its core they are indirectly a trading company.

We headed to the graveyard.
2 mini structures and a larger one…
At the gate.
Owl’s Wisdom on three members from Xaxis
Bursting out of the 24 graves are zombies.
Leaping onto the building to the left- apelike creature- hairless and cancerous, thick yellow green flesh. Two thick tongues wrap around it’s arms- two cleavers that it wields.
They jumped down and destroyed a zombie each and started feeding on them.
Managed to way through them, finally killing the second cleaver monster and the remaining zombies.

The funeral will cost 100 gp.
For casket, headstone, and service.
As the funeral started her body rose as the same kind of undead from before.
She stood up- the body changed. Her face has gotten elongated and is completely gray with white, empty eyes.

Metal fence- 4 feet tall.
I cast Light of Venya in anticipation, but…
It seems that Xaxis took it out with a mega-turn.
We buried the dust and stuck her longsword in the ground by it.

We went off to have a drink and toast our lost companion…

There are no new jobs in the silver or gold tier here.

There is one blip coming from: Inferno
I couldn’t justify going to Dukenhudiem, but…

½ a day’s travel out of town
One of them was down, four were up, one on a wagon, and four monsters.
The four monsters:
Zombie Umber hulks
Doing battle with a bunch of armored people
Woman dressed in nice clothing…

Dropped my Shield of Faith Mass
The woman in decent clothing- don’t let them get me!
Cast Light of Mercuria
Did some damage to them…
Light of Venya
24 – 3
22 – 4
I dimensional doored over to the lady on the wagon.
We finally dropped three of them

Due to storm delay, arrived at the end of the day.
Hit the adventurer’s guild- nothing in our brackets
A main graveyard on the west city limits.
The guildmaster didn’t know about that one…
Swing by the records office to see if they’ve got anything on file. Anything close to the city has to be documented properly.

Records Office- exceptional amount of dust on everything and a dusty person is scribing on one of the scrolls in front of him.
He said it looked shifty- Merry slipped him a platinum. (-1 pp from group loot to Merry)
According to some records of burials they do have a burial site outside of the city about an hour’s travel. I could get you a rough set of directions there. If anyone asks you stumbled upon those directions and did not get them from here.
This was- not what I expected this morning.
West the way we came and then divert off a side path.
Asked the guards to stay with the wagon while we checked it out.
The gate is chained and locked.
7-8 feet tall with spikes on the top.
We decided to circle the crypt.

I did not detect anything while circling it.
Plan to use the Claw on a tree- casting fly on Lynette

Resembles nothing more than a patch of mobile gloom more or less in human shape.
These creatures are consistent with the simply names shadow type of undead.

Simply called shadows, undead type, hard to hit.
I climbed in and dropped down, dropping my defensive aura.
I noticed that Lynette’s arrows, while hitting, did not seem to affect them passing right through.
The seemed to come from the two smaller crypts.

Looked at the door- no visible hinges, made of stone, locking mechanism.
Because the hinges do not seem to be visible it probably swings inward and it’s a set of double doors and the lock

Went to the larger room with a hole in it- Garreth saw a body inside and some coffins

Looks to be some sort of human wearing plain clothing- looks to have been struck down with something with blunt force trauma.
Searched the body – in the pocket is a key. It is consistent to a similar doors.
Cast light on Merry’s copper pouch.

Headed down to a blood-soaked set of tunnels. Then

A pair of incredibly tall, powerfully muscled humanoid covered in patchy fur with the head of a bull- the eye sockets are empty and there are chunks of flesh missing all over it.
Not sure what the original creature, but based on the appearance- probably consistent with a zombie. They are very hardy but they do not move very quickly.
Zombies do not seem to be able attack a lot when people slip past them…

Took care the othe two big brutes with giant great axes.
Then into the new room- 5 sarcophagi
Ceiling is 7 or 8 feet tall.

Each one depicts a different human
Merry opened the first one- there is a desiccated corpse in it.
Then closed it.
I opened a second one- a desiccated corpse inside it.
Two of the shadows showed up and then the lid behind me flew across the room to crush me…

A grey fleshed, hairless humanoid, elongated skull nose less face and white, empty eyes.

40 know religion check – type of undead created from remnants of humanoids created from absolute evil. Usually kill you by looking at you. Very difficult to kill under usual means.

Xaxis managed to pop another shadow and made the grey creature cower…
It stared at Merry and she died.

Picked up 2 large great axes.
Sketch the grey.
Sketch the zombies.

2nd day out of Parrish
Midday
Stepping out of the woods with a horrible roar…
Beast resembling a large reptile with a variable forest of heads on its long, slender necks.
Spelled up our artillery, warned the wagon, and wracked my brain as to what it is.
It is a hyrdra- creature known for its number of heads as its most effective method of attacking and removing a head generally begets another one.
Then it regenerated…
Our artillery managed to take it out pretty quick.
I sketched the creature.
Hitched up the horses to drag it out of the road.
Rest of the day was uneventful.

Checking the Zagg matrix for outstanding jobs…
2 jobs – normal board and an odd one…
Snake Handler Mishap- local one has a mishap- make is safe for the family to enter to recover the remains – silver tier.
Odd One – somebody came in and offered it up for anyone who can figure out how to do it.
This note with weird words on it:
A bunch of words that don’t make any senses to me- look like random letters.
A paragraph and a map.
The latter two seem to shimmer a little bit.
Go to a location within the city and input a sequence of words to the device that you find.

It does look like the common alphabet.
Lynette looked at the letter- it looks like a bunch of nonsense.
Cast detect magic and looked at it – does not detect as magic.

Lynette says what shimmery part.
Lynette grabs a scale and can see some writing.

The person who set up the job- the person would recover an item to bring back.
The person who dropped this off- he looked like- pretty plain looking.
Human- a little mysterious, I guess.
All the people who have tried so far have just stared at it.
Yeah, the guy was young.
He didn’t look like he was part of the working class.
He didn’t look like any of the type of people that frequent this place.
Snake shop – in the merchant district- couple of shops around with more exotic animals.
The map leads to the university district. Pretty far away from the merchant district.

I copy the notes and map.

Any Zagg alerts on the rest of the island at the moment- nope, looking green across the board.

We found the snake ship
Warning on the door: Danger inside- do not enter!
We cast all of the protection spells before heading in.
Staircase that goes up- snakes everywhere of various colors.

Our melees went in and started killing

Then we started to move them into their tanks- except for the violent ones which we killed.

A lot of beds and boxes, snake handler’s body.

A huge constrictor fell from the attic on Merry.

Almost got crushed to death.

Huge Snakeskin.

We went and reported the job was done.

Adventurer’s guild- reported success.
Updated the Zagg stones.
Sapphire Level – of gold

He had a lot of backing
1000 gp
Solid Gold Idol (500 gp)

Day of Vasta 22nd, Fluff Scale static at #13 in box
Group loot: 11 pp, 12gp, 4 sp; The Web (50 lbs); Lesser Bark Skin Potion (+2 Nat AC), Cure Light Potion (1d8 + 1)

Cont. Whisper

We got up and followed the map to the location, found the building- went inside.
Empty except a plaque on the wall.
Made out of bronze.
Lynette spoke the keyword in Draconic.

The plaque shimmers and disappears, revealing a weird looking box thing.
I grabbed the box.
Looks like it’s made out of some sort of Onyx material.
Elaborate inlaid gold on the side.
No seeming writings on it.
The box is not magical.

Head back to the guild.
That looks like what I was told to look for.
Hand the assistant guildmaster Mitchel.
Give you use of a private room to open it.
Here are your rings by the way…

The box was about 8 inches cubed.
Got the room set up for you…
(26th job)
He motioned us into the room- here you go!

Laid out on the table:
Rune stone
Sparkly orb that sparkles like the night sky
Scroll Case

The orb and the runestone glow with magic.

Open the scroll case- rolled up piece of parchment.
Pulled it out – a letter.
I wasn’t sure when you might find this …
She’s going on a metamorphosis journey as she reaches the next phase of her development.
She will attempt to seek you out once she’s finished if she can find you still.
I’ve included the power supply with this letter
Place the runestone on the codex then the orb on the codex.
Stand back.
Things are so different than my source materials stated at this point- the big event that you were all intertwined with doesn’t seem to have occurred.
Free will choices can only account for some difference- can only assume that some external force has been applied.
I’m looking at my possible reasons for the deviation- it’s probably unrelated but the city reported a power consumption spike- if you made it to Glacerin or the Leenza mountain. Keep the codec until it stops working and give it back to me the next time you see me after that.
One last thing, the one you travel with Lynette- seems to be inexplicitly resistant to divination- you might want to inquire further.
-The Loremaster

Decided to ask another question to make sure it wasn’t out of charge before recharging
#10
sigilsforkedpath
The sigils of the Wizard’s of the Forked Path are believed to lie within the burial chamber of the three wizards that make up the order. This burial chamber is hidden between the two roads leading out of Inferno and can be found by taking both paths. The secret to accomplishing this to reveal the entrance was lost with the disappearance of the last surviving servant of the order and has been the main reason their burial chamber hasn’t been located yet. Relic and Artifact Recovery Enterprises, a company based out of Inferno has been seeking the sigils for a number of years.

We slept 8 hours and prepared fresh spells.

I opened the door- a short (5’), narrow hallway with another door.
The other door is also stone but no runes above it.

I cast light on Merry’s copper pouch again.
Garreth opened the door.
Shale walls polished to an reflective sheen. 7 foot tall ceilings.
A few simple, yet beautiful carvings on the wall. Schematic for strange devices.
Hear a loud rumbling noise coming from behind.
The wall comes crashing into Xaxis.

I see a set of three suits of full plate armor that stand side by side as if at attention.
3 medium sized full plate armors. One slammed me.

Tapistries of battles between dwarves and orcs.
Then they attacked.

Shield rack – two racks with four tower shields each.
They attacked.

8 Tower shields lying on the ground.

More polished walls with inscriptions.
Wooden rack holds 2 longspears

Then Merry found the longswords…
Then we destroyed them.

Then to the spear rack- which moved…
We destroyed them.
2 Long spears.

Beaded rope curtain.
Wrapped and choked them.

Finally got to a door.
To the door- iron door with runes on it.
Spikes have been rammed where the hinges were.

Forbidden- do not enter, dangerous
Merry attacked and tried to remove spikes…

Broken furniture,

Pale serpentine creature with a single clawed hand, wiggles in the air, it’s tails lashing wildy.
3 Armoires
3 tiny junks (broken piece of tapestry and a broken chair leg)
All attacked us…

An Armoire ate Garreth
The garbage just kept animating

Then the snake thing flew away- and I cast fly on Lynette then Garreth…

Searched- wide pile of silver pieces.
Garreth managed to kill the monster.

Set of ornate scroll cases
Shiny suit of half plate armor *
3000 silver pieces
700 gold pieces
3 10lb. gold idols

Copied all of the runes and plans down.
Inside the scroll cases- significantly more complex plans and techniques found in there.

2 copies of the labyrinth
2 copies of a map to get here from town
2 copies of the walls

Headed back to camp around nightfall to our guards.
Played some games – Cuthwin brought some dice with him.
Crash at the camp.
Spent the evening making copies.
Don’t die.
