Session 69

Tharr’s Rough Notes:

Giant wolf spider with silver white eyes.
I moved on and secured the grabbling hook at the end of my 200’ of silk rope.

Theft detected blares in dwarven

Most of the party ended below
Dealing with spiders like before – phase spiders.
We got through the door and headed up the stairs…

Picked up the cloud token

New door- pair of switches facing West

Session 68

Tharr’s Rough Notes:

Used a scroll, wand, and some potions to mostly heal up the assassin.

New person- an elf.
Seems to know about different kinds of potions.

I took a restoration potion and used my wand a couple of times- I’m back to full.

The assassin took some empty potion bottles and filled them with the Blue, the Green, and the Yellow liquid.
Gave the blue (clear) to the sorcerer.
Assassin threw the yellow (black) into the red pool.
The vial and liquid exploded, filling the room with a choking cloud.

I teleported away but the cloud advanced.

The assassin jumped in the yellow and got soaked.
Then over into the green since no air bubbles were coming up from the paladin…

Then Zeff went over to shake some yellow goo into the blue pool…
Started filling the room with blue foam.

I threw the smallest bead of a type IV fireball into the gas cloud
The gas ignites…
The foam protected Zeffbot
The paladin was under the green liquid not breathing…

The blue foam hit the red and the green- with the paladin still in it…

I dimensional doored over to the party, then got everyone around me and teleported out of the dungeon to the entrance.
The new elf disappeared in a mysterious cloud…

Then Garreth appeared and joined us.

Good night’s sleep and we headed back in.
Explored the other door from the entrance and found an open door leading to a large chamber.
Hit something and the whole floor shifted…

Session 67

Tharr’s Rough Notes:

Cornelius worked on a trap on the door.
Humming noise.
Scratch marks going to the left and right. Soot in them.
The inserts appear to be of different spaces- glow
Teardrop = blue
Mountain = brown

Cloud = white
Flame = Red

Dropping from the ceiling- giant burning boulders- mechanical in nature. Made from various cogs and sitting on a track in the scratch marks.

I used my boots of big stepping. Surrounded by sparks, and there was a delay, but I teleported…
Opened the south door.
Inside we find a pedestal with a blue drop on it. Green goo pool, yellowish goo pool.
Humming had levelled out.

Red goo pool, blue goo pools.

Paladin grabbed to teardrop- the door slammed down.

We Cornelius opened the door, I saw a blood slime monster in there.

Spews forth a cone of viscous red acid.
-11 acid.
-2 con damage

Tried to cast a spell and it fizzled.
It knocked the human to the ground. The Human stood took a knee and attacked its foot. It pushed him back into the yellow slime.
Chance dove into the yellow pool with Chance…
Got a close wounds on Zeff- the monster hit him and he dropped, but didn’t die.

Got the monster into the tunnel- the acid kept hitting the rogue who was blocking it. I was just able to do enough healing to just stop him from dying.

Session 66

Tharr’s Rough Notes:

After 10 minutes the portal closes.
9th day of travel, Kren the 10th

Detect Magic – looking around where the portal was.
Residual magic in the direction of where the portal was, no other anomalies…

First Watch – Tharr – with Assassin
Second Watch – Human
Third Watch – Paladin & Assassin

Travel Day 10, Kren 11th
Peaceful Travel
Peaceful Night

Travel Day 11, Kren 12th
Mid-day happen upon a small coastal city- Xaveron

As you enter the city, the streets seem empty. Commotion coming from the centre of the city.
Eastward- getting louder. Entering the last district- suddenly surrounded by lots of activities. A festival.
Silks, fabrics, fish, spices. Multiple stages where people are performing.
Harbour festival.
½ way through- hard to progress.

Bought some fried fish -8 gp.
Wave and Ship Inn

Melvin’s Maps
Sea Faring Maps, Surrounding hunting maps, and south keshuna region
6 gold for all three
Artisan Dungeon – not sure.
Check out over in the core district- Dusty Tomes
Checked the Codex on Artisan Dungeon- no listing…
Back to the core district – to Dusty Tomes, appears to be closed. Notice in the door- at the festival- check back tomorrow.
-5gp for room

Everyone picked up a dusty tome. Mine was on interesting sites in the area, including the ruin in question.

Took some doing but we made it to the location of the entrance. It took some time for the custom key from RARE to do its job, but the vibrations built and created some kind of portal into ruins. Strangely, the portal did not detect as magical…

Session 65

Tharr’s Rough Notes:

Killer / Chance
Zeff/Corevellus
Tharr/Corevellus

Day 3 of travels – 4th Kren
Mid-day – walking down the road.
Little girl on a road side stand?

Glass of lemonade
Deck of cards
Sooty looking piece of coal rock

4000 gold each.
The value is within.

-3350 to Zeff
Corvellus kicked in 450
Zeff kicked in 200

It was an orb- I’m sure that customer can see the value within.
We have a no return policy.
A glow to his complexion.

She pulls an egg out and puts it on the counter.
After we walk away- thank you for your business. Hands the sooty rock to no one.

Moving on…
Through the day.
Set up camp

Early the 5th- 3rd watch.
Looking into the fire – feeling like there’s a message in the flames for me.
Message or inspiration for someone or something.
A series of symbols or runes- nothing I’ve ever seen before…

Day 4 of travel, 5th of Kren
Mostly uneventful- passed by a caravan coming from Xaveron
The driver doesn’t really stop

Set up camp
While sleeping…
The runes – vivid dream – See a giant city surrounded by nothingness. A pillar of light shooting from the centre of the city. Feeling that something is growing or building in this city- not sure how I feel. Sense of uneasiness- don’t understand- something is telling me that there is information that is missing- some part of that is not understood. Coming out of that dream- not really sure how to interpret it.
Know: Engineering- very reminiscent of north and south keshuna, a mixture of both. The central spire or building- resembles nothing I have ever seen- ever.

Day Five of travel – 6th of Kren
Set up camp

Day six travel – 7th of Kren
Distinct sound of flapping wings in the sky behind us.

2 large red dragons

It’s been very difficult catching up with you…
You’ve all been very difficult to catch up with- always walking, running, disappearing…

Sorry for the inconvenience- what can we do for you gentlemen
First off, don’t go trying to get away again

Z: You’ve tracked us down, finally- what do we need to do?
D: We have committed great resources to track you down- listen to what we have to say.

A while ago we sent an emissary to speak with you- and you decided to smack him in the face. We razed a city because you were there- you would not listen.

D: There is a great change coming to our world- the fabric, the flow- your group is at the center of this.
This one feels wrong.

It was Ramirez, Chance, Zeffbot, and Tharr back then.
You reek of unnatural.
This change coming to the world- we don’t know what it is- but it is linked to you.
Our first messenger was met with less than friendly conditions.
We represent a conglomeration that has far reaches everywhere.
Certain things seem masked, hidden from us.
It must be Lynette.
She’s hanging with Azana.
Handed him the note.
We shall take this back to our leadership.
Shared we’re heading to Xaveron and then to Enillos.
They asked for one of us to go with them.
Killer said he would go with them.
We accept your offer.

We are being tasked by the Collection to determine the source and threat level of this anomaly.
We have worked with the lore master before.
I bought this rock.
We don’t know why your particular group seems to be the center of this.
Suggested they reach out to the Loremaster.

Set up camp
Kren 8 – Travel Day 7

Set up camp

Kren 9 – travel day 8
Set up camp
3rd watch

Hear whispering behind the rocks.
A portal opens up.
A giant centipede comes out of the portal. Then a dinosaur and then eats the centipede.
T-rex
Rex ate the paladin & fighter.

After 10 minutes the portal closes.
Kren the 10th

RARE – no

10 ½ days to Xaveron
First day…
End of the day, as we were about to stop for the night..
Stopped, about to set up camp
Killar leaned against a tree- it fell over, (rotten), hit another tree, hit a boulder- down the hill and hit a hut… What the hell!

A pair of simian appearance giants.
Two Hill giants

Avenge Terrence

The other giant walked over, pulled Terrence off of him, and wept.
Chance stood and laid on hands…
Then Zeff Human pulled out his battleaxe and charged him- chop
Corvellus felt genuine sorrow over the possible loss of Terrence and was glad all worked out for the best. . .well, except for the state of the hut.

Greg and Richard- two little puppies

I healed Terrence
They take a front door and hold it over them to stay out of the rain.

Day 2 peaceful
Day 2 night peaceful
Day 3… rolled 100

Onto Whisper
We arrived
Zeff tried to run- they all grappled him and dragged him to Azana

He got resurrected as a human
As did the other three ghosts that were with him

View
Session 62

Tharr’s Rough Notes:

Wondering through the fog- hear Zeff having a conversation in front of us.
Zeff is talking to himself…
I cast fly and flew up.
Zaveron
Caimin Sithigh
He says he was born in 2287
He is human

A fair amount of human shaped figures are around us- the fog has lightened up a little bit.
We can see the edge of the wall- ruins, piles of armor- little is naturally occurring.

I checked the map- looking at the landmarks- pretty close. Want to head westward. Maybe an hour.

Had some issues with ghosts- managed to run away from them.
Zeff picked up two more hitch hikers

A terrible roaring from above- from the south. Giant flapping wings fall above.
Dimensional door 800 feet that way.

As we arrived at the location…
Nothing but a faintly glowing sphere of light.
4 of them show up and attack.

These are wisp like creatures that feed of the panicked emotions.

Search the body- found the amulet.
Family crest on the armor. Took that part.

We teleported to the gate of the town.

View
Session 61

Tharr’s Rough Notes:

Near opaque whiteness.

Zeff’s harness and two other ropes leading away.
Darker and lighter shades swirl around us.
Tied myself to the monk
The fog lightens up and we see a structure in the distance…

We heard a scream- the sound of a woman?
We headed towards the scream
A long dead skeleton about where we found the skeleton

The skull of the body looks to have been bludgeoned. Bits of the back of the skull on the ground.

Headed towards the building. A tower- the door is slightly ajar. Cannot see the top. The stonework looks to be vary old.
It does not seem to match the architectural style from northern keshuna or southern keshuna
Seen this style in Amawa. Perhaps a little light coming from within…
We headed in.
Slight rumbling noise- bass noise.
Can’t quite place the bass sound to something I’d heard before.
We headed in. Magical torches all around.

Headed up the spiral staircase. Quite a distance.
An elvish woman sitting at the desk.
Did I leave the door open again?
Get in and close the door.

I’ve been working on this project for several weeks now.
How long has the tower been here?
I had it built so I would not be disturbed.
We introduced ourselves…
Ariawyn Fenhorn
Elf
Typical elf, not like Sweaty Ballz

We’re a little lost- where exactly is this tower located?
Just outside of Emerald.
Where is Emerald?
A couple days east of Raindrop. Near Emerald.

We thought we were south of Unity.

Does you tower move?
I think this should be on the other side of the road…
A pair of legs sticking out the side of the tower…
Trousers and boots…

Glass orb out of her robes- rolls a little bit.
Headed up- screeching noise coming from the walls all around us. Like scraping pieces of metal.
Footsteps coming down…
Did it work?

The woman standing before us does not look the same…
Now she looks dressed entirely different with different colored eyes and hair.
But you both look different…

Work for that woman? She frequently stops in Raindrop to find help.
Heard the distinct sound of water. Water coming under the door.
She said- let me go check the hatch on the top…
Okay- the top is barely above the waterline…

She pulled another lever- heard a wooshing sound.
The water’s pooled on the ceiling…
Slight echoing noise…
A landscape that goes lightly upwards- giant red ball of fire in the center.

Oh, here’s the reset button- close the door…
Everything around stops suddenly- stretches- good awful noise and black out…

A scorched pattern of a tower.
Paper floats down- Hey, I found a reset button. Hopefully this got you back where you need to be

Hit in the head by something that fell from the sky
On the back- “Something for your troubles- thank you for your help. I didn’t know it did that.”
Some sort of trinket- a couple of inches. Made from some sort of gem.

Ariawyn’s tower
