[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 14

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Ryfon questioned the horse about what he saw the night we were in the crypt. The horse said it was attacked by big dogs with large claws. Lots of big dogs. Those we took to mean the werewolves that were known to be in the area. Though we had killed a few on our way to the crypt, it almost seems the area was swarming with them. The horse also saw something in the sky. Something big. We sent Marwin…
