Character Creation
Friday Nite @ Bryan's

A fantastic night was had by all on Friday.

Rus, Bryan, Wade and Callum spent 4 hours on Friday night working out the details of their characters for the fantastic campaign that Rus has organised.

It was suggested that Rus start to give us the background of the story, but, given that it was already midnight, and Ian was missing, we decided to wait…..

Awesome times ahead!!

-D!

A Letter Arrives
Excuse me but do I know you?

On the 10th day of 3rd Naylos a letter arrives from someone who you feel you should know. He claims to be an old friend. The only memory you have of Norhtal is that he was a little child who was more than a little strange. Your curiosity is roused however as Norhtal seems to know about the horrific nightmares you have been having. Dark dreams filled with creatures, darkness and a young girl who somehow makes everything else seem better than it really is. Oldest friend Despite all your misgivings about this, you are strongly drawn to respond as asked and you find yourself contemplating making a journey at the wrong time of year in order to find answers that you are not sure you have questions for.

Session 1
Okay now I'm here, what do you want?

Each of our heroes have received a letter by someone called Norhtal, claiming to know them. They must decide what to do with this new information

10th day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150:

the day shone brightly it was a good day to start the long preparation for the coming coldness of Nimos. Or not. The letter arrived by the 3rd hour in the grubby hands of a street urchin by the name of Arithe. A Letter Arrives. Lucky Noson decided to leave straight away taking nothing but the clothes on his back and a knife. Reollo Aedailis opted to prepare himself and start out early the next morning, his military training instilled in him a need to be organised, his weaknesses forced him to pack more food than most. Sirath Haesty came out of his cups to late in the day and decided to strike out the next day when he had a full stomach. Tiberius Ulanor needed to know more and went to the library of the Magi to determine where he needed to go. Tiberius found out that Hadlin was the Abbott of a heretical sect of Ardar. Despite this he made preparation the best he could to leave the next day.

Its easy we just kill them all and keep whatever we find.

Having met with Norhtal at the the Oratory of Hadlin and discovering a hidden past. The heroes decided to travel to Engle’s Holding and then onto Hob’s Nest where they hope to exact their revenge and find some evidence of the fate of Allandra

13th day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150:

Breaking at dawn from their camp the rag tag band of vengeance seekers made their way to the entrance of Hobs Nest. Many saplings and a number of larger trees have been cut down, much of the foliage left to moulder. The creek that trickles from the mouth of the cave is muddied and putrid. There is a smell of refuse pervading the air flowing out of the cave system.
The entrance itself is like an abyss sunk into the hill side. As if a hand of some angry earth lord struck down and shattered the rock leaving behind a crack in the earth.
Entering they the travel some way in following a natural stairway up as shafts of light play along the passage. The way is not hard and the passage is clear. But there is an increase in a stench. Trickling under foot is a seeping putrid flow. As the they crest the passage the stench is over powering. A natural pool has turned into cess pit, full of unspeakable things. Circumnavigating the sludge they make their way to what is obviously the main tunnel out of the three that branches out of the 10 foot circular cave.

We have this unconscious lady and a dead guy, what do we do with them and what next?

The heroes entered Hob’s Nest, freeing the slaves and discovering a young boy, an unconscious lady and a dead man. Now they are heading back to Engle’s Holding with the rag tag band of people in tow.

13th day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150:

Coming down the mountain from climbing up out of the darkness of the Hob’s Nest with daylight waning. The heroes struggling with the terrain as much as they struggle with the fact that have hit a dead end in finding anything about Alandra. The heroes strike up a conversation with the lad they found huddled at the bottom of the natural chimney. He tells them that his name is Nistril Naemirund and that his mother is the unconscious woman that they found, the Lady Naemirund Prefect of Fallsea. The dead man is his uncle Iaral Naemirund. The heroes have some time to digest this news before they are within a yelled greeting of Engle’s Holding. Straggling out of the dense woodsour heroes return with the 12 children and 5 adults slaves, the Lady Naemriund, her child and her dead brother. There is sudden industry within the holding as recognition dawns upon the free holders of what is slowly approaching. The gates that were closed awing open and people pour out to meet the struggling group. Idai taking command of the situation directs the children and adults to various households to be cared for and fed. Lady Naemirund is bundled away by the wise women of the village.

Session 4
Back where we were. Now we have to kill more things.

It is discovered that the unconscious woman is a Prefect of Fallsea, the young boy is her son and the dead man is her brother. After spending a little downtime in Engle’s Holding it is decided that the heroes will return to Hob’s Nest and clear it out completely.

15th day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150:

The heroes were last seen being approached by 3 rather large Hobs. The battle is joined as Lucky, Reollo ans Sirath charge forward to intercept them. A war hatchet sprouts out of the shoulder of the Hob that Sirath is approaching on the right, it reels and looks slightly dazed at the new development, Norhtal feeling a sense of savage pride. Reollo brings both his sword and ax to bare on the lead Hob in the middle. Just missing with his sword but finding the creatures ribs with his ax. It growls at the pain and steps in for a counter attack, its blade skidding off Reollo’s armour. Meanwhile Lucky has charged with carefree abandon at the Hob on the left. His knives find purchase in the creatures neck and it gurgles is pain and frustration, thrusting with its rusty sword glancing off Lucky’s ribs leave a bloody crease. Sirath swings and eviscerates the Hob before him, leaving a bloody gushing stump. He then turns towards the Hob currently being kept busy by Reollo. Tiberius takes this opportunity to dash forwards and attempt to drag the downed Hob to the side to search it in a frenzy of activity. This time Reollo’s weapons find their mark and reek havoc on the lead Hob, leaving a fine spray of gore reaching out in an arc. Lucky stabs down two more times and achieves a desired result of lifelessness also.

Alright now we are done with that festering hole of filth, what now?

Previously the heroes totally cleaned out Hob’s Nest they returned to Engle’s Holding to recuperate, learn new things and decide what to next

20th day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150

The day dawns bright and clear. Today is a day to travel. The arrangements have been made. Our heroes secured a cart. A simple flat bed with two very large wheels pulled by a very placid mule. The evening before Lady Unauht and the heroes discussed their journey to Fallsea. Lady Unauht was by now very anxious to be gone. Iaral was placed on the planks. His body encased in clay. Lady Unauht and Nistral sitting on the raised cartier’s bench. Almost the entire holding turned out to farewell the heroes especially the children they had saved from the Hob’s Nest. Yada hobbled up and admonished them to all be careful, even Tiberius. She told them that she had dream last night of them all. Each of the heroes were surrounded by the blackest darkness, but stood transfixed and safe with columns of light. She said she did not know what it meant only she had to tell it. She then gathered them in and chanted an old blessing of the All Father over them all.

21st day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150

Dawn breaking and the brothers of the Oratory were busy with their chores. The heroes filtered their way downstairs as did Lady Unauht and Nistral. The heroes thankful for the minstrations of the brothers to their wounds the night before. The group busied themselves with breakfast. Lady Unauht could not but steal glances as the clay encrusted figure of Iaral.

Session 7
That guy was one really tough nut, now to go and get ourselves into some trouble.

Previously having witnessed the resurrection of Iaral, the heroes return to Fallsea with their charges. Back in the bustling city Lucky confront a supernatural serial killer, the heroes hear many rumours and they follow then confront the person in charge of their family heirlooms

22nd day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150

Lucky was completely stunned when Andelin reacted with frustration instead of being intimidated. Andelin asked what it was they wanted. Lucky said they just wanted to know why their heirlooms were late in being given to them. Andelin shook his head and as the lift had reached the docks he stepped off. He told the heroes that he was the Overseer of the Repository he did not take care of the day to day running of it. But just to get them off his back and stop their crying he would look into it. Come and see him in a two day.

Session 8
How to stage a successful ambush

After confronting Andelin, the keep of the heirloom reliquary and coming away nonplussed, the heroes followed up on the rumours of street fights in the under galleries and find themselves blackmailed into helping out Mistress Sneak’s Alliance. Also Tiberius does some research coming away with some useful information

23rd day of 3rd Naylos Second Epoch 2150

Mr Shady had made it clear. He wanted the ambush to take place that night. Reollo had tried to reason with Mr Shady about having more time to make tactical decisions. Mr Shady curtly reminded him that it was his people dying every night and the urgency was very great.

So reluctantly the heroes set off to stage an ambush that may or may not come off in its execution due to a meager amount of preparation time. Planning it to happen at a point where other attacks had happened, a place that was likely to have an attack on Mr Shady’s man again.
