28th of Aen
Headed to the temple
Asked around about the elf- showed up first thing in the morning and then stormed out in a huff.
We sought out the head priest- he said that yes, we did
She said she was going back to the inn to wait.
We headed back to the inn…
Lynette is sitting at an empty table.
Lynette yelled at Ramirez, Why didn’t you tell me?
She pulled him aside to talk to him.
Tharr (-5), Xaxis (14), and Tordec (29)
A couple of words- upset about not being tolk about Azana and something about dreams and ‘let them have their gods’
Lynette- I’ve gotten us a lead!
Something you said yesterday- St. Cuthbert has very similar ideology- maybe he has some affiliation with Azana- maybe she follows him. I got communicated in my dreams by Azana- after talking with her last night I went to talk to the priest to verify some information.
She has no affiliation with this amulet…
She said, based on her understanding of the situation, she would be able to help us find it. Specifically, there is a magic item that I’m supposed to find that’s hidden here in the town that if we use it on the pedestal that it was being held, it will give us a tuning as to where it is.
They have similar ideologies…
Tordek went to get digging tools.
The description leads us just outside of town- the tree has been split violently by some sort of storm.
The ground in front of the tree has been disturbed.
Based on the scorching of the tree- lightning strikes or multiple lightning strikes- with the faint smell of burnt wood.
The grass around the area is overgrown.
Almost immediately after start digging – hit something metal sounding.
A charred rod of some sort.
It has a slight vibration to it.
Headed back to the temple…
The mass is wrapping up.
The head priest is at the pedestal.
I asked a parishioner the name of their head priest: Brother Roland.
The pedestal looks to have at one time held the amulet.
Put the rod on the pedestal…
I spun it in 360 degrees- didn’t seem to vibrate in any particular direction.
Lynette tapped it – vibrating harder
I took it and pointed it around- seemed to vibrate towards the NW part of town.
Reached the edge of town- still vibrating.
Roughly in that direction is silent breeze.
As we start to leave- Lynette says, I just recalled:
Something about a mention of a bucket.
Rolland was outside the perimeter tending to the flowers.
Rolland knows nothing of a bucket.
Heading to Silentbreeze
First day and night were fine.
Waking up the next day.
It seems to be vibrating northward rather than NW.
We headed north through the woods.
Starting to get dark- at this point the rod seems to be behaving in an erratic fashion. It doesn’t seem to be pointing in a specific direction- it’s trying to align itself in a different way.
It sticks at an angle towards the ground.
Not near a mountain or a hill.
Made some markings on the ground where the rod is and which way it’s pointing.
Camped for the night.
1st and 2nd watch went by.
Large, skeletal humanoids. Slender clawlike claws- up to 10 feet before slowly contracting.
Got stabbed hard while asleep-
Woke and cast protection devotion, shield of faith mass, and got to a kneeling position.
Tordec woke up and carefully stood up, shield handy.
Isn’t clear where these things come from- most likely from a fell nether plane. Exceptional control over their claws. Notoriously difficult to kill.
Cast light of mercuria.
We won the day…
A small kingdom you probably haven’t heard of…
The name of the kingdom: Aebios
Wracked my brain- known as the lost Continent. As it disappeared hundreds of years ago- disappeared one day with a terrible mega storm. Very little remains or even it’s exact location wasn’t indicated in the history. It was believed to have been entirely destroyed by a catastrophic storm. No reliable way to know where it is. No known maps are said to exist.
Codex: Where is Aebios?
The location is unknown- it is most likely to be somewhere south of Versat and Keshiki.
We moved the rod around- found the spot pointing straight down. Lynette found a tiny little revine about 20 feet deep. Looking down into it an entran
