12-04-15 - The one where they bravely ran away
earth shrine basement and tunnels beneath
  • Explored the first basement level
  • Via Leo’s disguise kit, month garb and Leo’s alter self(?), tricked orc?/ogre guards into leading them to prisoners
  • Then defeated guards and freed prisoners, one of whom was NAME, one of the lost delegates
    • He said that one other delegate was taken by Queen Aerisi (the one we knew about) while the other two survivors were taken below.
    • Earth cultists were using prisoners to dig about randomly, seemingly pointlessly. WHAT WERE THEY LOOKING FOR?
  • Left prisoners in kitchen while we went further below
Long Rest – Welcome to level 6!
  • Left large insect/hulk monster in case under main room
  • Killed a bullette! (And Leo’s fireballs burned up some fodder too!)
  • Then almost got killed by the guards outside the deeper temple
  • Ran the hell away – used Seeker’s familiar to apply dust of disappearance to Roan+Doran, as well as carried an obscuring darkness with it to cause confusion.

11-21-15 The one with the lich
earth shrine ground level
  • Initial exploration of the earth cultist base (former dwarven temple).
  • Gargoyles!
  • Tricked cultists into opening a side door (?).
  • Leo may have murdered a bunch of sleeping (evil!) dwarves with a fireball
  • Fought some nasty monks, one of whom could blind fight, or at least see/sense Seeker’s tiny invisible familiar
  • Talked (not fought!) with a lich after breaking down his door and lived to back out the door and repair said door nicely.

11-12-15 Interlude : The morning after & welcome to 5th level

GM


Using Kufu to take a turn at watch, you rest through the night without incident. Welcome to 5th level (officially)!


Leo


Leo is up with the dawn, not at all usual for him. He’s got his gear packed and his hippogriff saddled before the day has fully begun. "I’m going to take a look and see what’s what. If that pirate mage has gathered backup we might fly into trouble. ". The owl is flitting about restlessly chirping and beating its wings. “Hush. You’ll not be going.”

He turns to the others. "My problem. Ahem, well… ‘patron’ I suppose you could call it isn’t happy with my reading that book. I’m starting to see why, but I’m not ready to share more just yet. It’s angry at me I think, but a deal is a deal and I have gained some new insights from the struggle. "

He climbs on the ‘griff. "I’m maybe of more use than I was, but I’m more dangerous to travel with as well. We all are I suppose, but I have a lord of hell angry at me. You’ll have to decide if that’s a risk you’re wanting to share. "

He snaps a harsh phrase and grabs hold of his mount. “I’ll be back within the hour”. With a ripple he and the hippogriff vanish from sight, with a rush of air the invisible beast springs into the sky.

The owl, with a sad “hoot” flies up to perch on the roof, scanning the sky for its master.

Staying invisible Leo would sweep the riversides. Try to spot if the pirate is holed up someplace. He’d also make a pass to see if the “bad guys” are visible and if the servants are OK across the river. He doesn’t engage with anyone and stays at a minimum of 150 feet.


GM


Leo doesn’t catch any sign of Shoalar Quanderil (the pirate captain who has no idea that he’s Roan’s nemesis). You see a few harmless looking fishing boats during your sweep, but the other side of the river looks clear for a drop off of the captive servants.

The boats are of varying sizes. You would have seen a couple that are basically rowboats. One or two would be larger like a keelboat.
