Kingdoms in Death

Astrid's Journal

I lost my job today. all because of my Temper. YET AGAIN. Who cares if you knock some worthless uneducated whore on her arse? Just because she occasioanly wiggles it towards the Tavern-keeper. This laddy who calls himself Adin and his fellows seem useful enough for now. Since my options seem a touch limited I’ll go along and make some coin. Perhaps I’ll even have some adventures. Mum always said my curiosity would be my downfall. Hard to argue with an Oracle aye? Mum was a mean one, but usually accurate. alas, I’ll simply need to enjoy what I can of this adventure whatever little time I may have at this endeavour and see if I survive it. Perhaps I can prove her wrong.
Good Night journal.

Letters from Marcus, Festival of the Night

105upg1Tonight was the Festival of the Night, I was invited to attend a small VIP gathering at the Prancing Penguin with some of the newer noble houses. I brought Adin along under the guise of my servant with the task to search out people whose skills would assist him in his upcomming mission to clear out the life cult known as the Life Consortium. During which time I observed his skills, it is hard for him still to find people he can trust but I can see his interactions with Regret the Grain Merchant have paid off. He is becoming more social, even if a bit straight forward. His first recruit for the mission ahead was a large foreigner named Rory, a cartographer by profession but a well seasoned man of adventure. Later he found a mage working as a common bar wench named Astrid. She displayed a strong will and an even stronger desire to earn a living since her most recent actions had cost her the wench position at the bar. Lastly he recruited Ezra Dree and Ravyn Bathory, the first a new True Necromancer or so they seem to think and the latter his Necromonger teacher. While at first I assumed this merely to be a mild enjoyment on Adin’s part, but I began to see the wisdom of bringing a soon to be leader into the very heart of corruption posed by the life cults. The group will meet in the morrow and set off to the Necropolis. Soon we shale see the end of another cult, then maybe I can feel like I have made some peace for the actions I have taken and the lives I have sent to early graves.

Generic Overview!

Video call snapshot 2So since I have been lazy on updating OP, here is the nitty gritty since the last entry. This is not in character and from the GM directly. Everyone had woken up from being put to sleep by Mocking Life. While everyone was asleep Mocking Life used them to burn parts of the city. The party was captured and brought before Lexandra Di’grasso for a hearing and shortly their execution. She had informed them that they had been gone for a month and were witnessed destroying the city. Ezra Dree’s own family spoke as witness’ against them. They told their side of the story and now believe they may have been resurrected and doomed to the Maelstorm. The Empress’ Priests were unable to confirm if they in fact were resurrected, so they would have to set of to Dagamoore to find the Temple of Pharasma and the Head Priestess. They planned their escape from the city with the aid of the Empress and Marcus who they thought had been executed as a traitor to the crown. Adin with the help of the Royal Assassatorium set fires in the city and personally killed a corrupt Council Member, Count Hugo. Adin found out that it was all the plot of Count Von Stuben to eliminate the Empress and have the Council take over control of the city. Before leaving Adin found Regret The Grain Merchant and shared his knowledge of the plot against the Empress. Regret gave Adin a map writen in his native tongue to the temple he trained at as a child should he need a safe place to hide out for a while. Adin also learned that his brother had been reported as in Dagamoore for reasons unknown. Adin then meet the rest of the part in a secret dock behind the Crest Mountain Range through a secret passage known as the Emperor’s Way. They were then taken North to a small fishing village on their way to Dagamoore. About halfway through the trip they were attacked by a Sea Drake which Rory MacFinnigan executed with a harsh blow to the head. The crosses the plains and swamp to get to the Dagamoore Mountain Chain. Using the knowledge that Rory had gained from his dream they gained access to the Great Hall of Dagamoore. They soon explored and found two paths one was the Hammer Path which lead to the Temple of Pharasma, and the other was the Axe Path they never finished exploring because they lost the newest member of their party a ranger named Kat. Adin now has to face the party for possibly killing her, they then went to Dagamoore to see Thane Torack Glanrid and the Dwarven Elite Guard. They began to learn about the lost Dwarven Society and where Kat was being held by the Dark Ones at Greykeep Prison. And the party gained a new member Shaali Nialo.

TPK I

Gun2 barduumSo the group made it out of the dwarven kingdoms, they even learned a little more about the connection between Rhodes and Cyrus, Adin’s brother. Pressure grew between party members until finally Adin killed Smoosh on the salt flats and then Shaali. He was then confronted by Rory for his actions with a challenge. It is unknown who won the fight between those too, all that is known is that the group was never hear from again. Also they helped me take the Maiden of the Bay’s Leg, Arrrg.
