[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 11

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 11

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…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 10

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…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 9

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…

We made it to Waterdeep. We decided to stay in the North Ward at The Pampered Traveler. Expected travel time to Ardeep Forest is two and a half days. I told our new friends the tale of the Key of Flame. I also had to tell them why I was summoned to the Font of Knowledge in Waterdeep. They seemed more interested in that tale than the Key. I checked in to the Font early, though I wasn’t due for…

[WFRP 1e] The Enemy Within 35

We were on our way home from the Morrspark (who thought they’d just let us in to see the long-dead body of the Graf’s wife?) when we saw two men absconding from the park with a body. Our sneakier members followed the grave robbers, and the rest of us followed the party members. They brought the body into a haulage company, and were shortly thereafter recruited by our team. Manny the Maggot and Waldo the Weasel are our in to…

We did a little hobnobbing and scored ourselves a dinner invitation from 2 sisters who are new in town. There was an uncomfortable conversation with the Graf’s current champion, Dieter Smiterhammer, regarding taxes, but otherwise the dinner went well. The end game of the dinner was to score invitations to other events going on with those of status higher than us. The plan worked. We were invited to the event of the festival week: The Garden Party. I am also…

The cart driver, Alex Eisen, has more political opinions than Emperor Karl Franz! He eventually gets us to the shared Sigmar/Ulric shrine a half mile off the main road (I could have sworn we were told it was right on the main road and we couldn’t miss it). We arrive to see the place surrounded by Templars with the symbol of a fiery heart on their uniforms. Of course, none of us are quite adept enough at heraldry to know…

We spent some time burying the body we had found. I think we’re going to end up doing that a lot with this priest of Morr in the party now. Along the road through the Drakwald we met some dwarfs who told us of the woes of Middenheim’s taxes. I tried to get them to go with us if we were to cover their taxes. I thought it might be an easy way to make connections in a new town….

After we performed some emergency healing due to the cyclops attack, two owlbears came rushing at us. Owlbears happen to be Ryfon’s natural enemy, so he attacked in earnest. Brayden had gone down and wasn’t going to be any help to us, so I cast Dispel Fatigue so he could get a spell back [1]. Shortly behind the owlbears came two cyclopes. Real cyclopes. Apparently the ones we fought earlier were miniature cyclopes. I thought they might be more rational…

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 6

It was an uneventful trip from Baldur’s Gate to Candlekeep, where we took accommodations at the Inn. I dispatched a note to my contact Siliven to let him know of my arrival and impending visit in the morning. We also talked to the Inn’s bard due to our desires to hire a person such as him to help spread our chronicled exploits. The kind gentleman agreed to send some of his peers to meet us in the garden in the…
