[WFRP 1e] The Enemy Within 39

At the Garden Party, the High Wizard and the Deputy High Wizard finally show up to the party, as does the Gravin last seen at the Three Feathers. Wilhelm takes and opportunity to chat with the High Wizard. Wilfried goes along. Wilhelm shows the High Wizard the signet ring of The Necromancer, and the Wizard insists they speak in a more private area. It is believed the Necromancer is active in this city. He started operating with renewed vigor last…

Harlan met Darian and Draskillion at the Dock Ward at sunset. He came with two very large goons, who insisted on covering the priests’ heads with sacks before taking them on a walking tour of Waterdeep. When we arrived at Martheep’s base of operations, the Illithid stated he had all the information we needed, but it was going to cost 500 GP. Luckily he took a writ from the church of Kossuth. Here’s some of the information he gave us:…

The party was able to travel 2 more days and get 2 more nights sleep before the assassin, as we had come to call him, struck again. We had taken to sleeping in a dome we could see out but others couldn’t see into. It was a very handy spell Darian had obtained. The assassin shot a crossbow bolt toward our camp. It had a note attached to it. We sent Delenn out to retrieve the note, but she didn’t…

We went down the stairs, into the bowels of the overrun monastery to Illmater. But we didn’t want to be heard, so we used Silence 15’ Radius. The room at the bottom contained the dead of a few different races. The dead humans had obviously been monks. All the creatures had puncture wounds in their necks. They had been drained of blood. We pooled our knowledge of vampires: They are repelled by strong garlic, mirrors cause them to recoil, the…

Marktag: Larry had to defend against any challenges to the champion. A belligerent dwarf with a bad haircut challenged Larry. The dwarf wanted to use 2 handed axes. Larry wanted to use swords. The guy running the games chose quarterstaffs. Larry knocked the dwarf out cold. The dwarf has vowed to challenge again the next day with a bucket of berries. We’ll see if that happens. We didn’t so much go to the Festival of Fine Ales as we did…

On the next day of the festival, we were traveling to the fighting arena when a scruffy urchin was caught stealing pies right in front of us. Wilhelm payed the fine, and the urchin and his friends agreed to work for us on retainer. (I’m sure they just agreed to work for him, but I like to think we’re all in this together.) Larry battled the graf’s champion and knocked the poor man out. We went to his apartments with…

We decided to investigate the signs of the Nurgle cult below Morrspark. There was a question of hiring Addick the gnome to scout the hole we found behind the coffin. It’s probably good we didn’t press that lead. We did, however, mention the hole to the priest in charge during the festival. His name was Archibald, and he was gung-ho to explore our report. He at least had the presence of mind to call for a replacement (named Mombert) to…

Darian has a powerful ally that can magically gate himself right into the middle of our camp whenever he wants, it seems. The man, Nameed, showed up to warn us that three powerful Zhentarim assassins were tracking us. We need to finish this quest before things get further out of hand. That night, some crazy fog rolled in – 13 distinct portions of mist – and headed over our camp toward the monastery. The significance of such an event is…

There was nothing left to do but go in to the crypt. Right before going in we lost Braden to a ghoul attack (down but not killed) and we gained Delenn, who had previously been too wounded to continue after the troll fight. We put some protective spells on the fighters and entered the building. Neither of the priests were able to Turn the giant skeletons, so it was a knock-out fight with flaming undead. We did pretty well attacking…

Lacking the time and equipment to return Dungar to the earth, where we assumed a dwarf would want to be returned, we held a funeral pyre for our dead song mage. It was too bad we could not take better care of our hired historian. We will have to do better with the next one. That night, many of us had nightmares about a dark ritual occurring in a sarcophagus. Ryphon was on guard duty, and he saw an apparition…
