[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 8

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 8

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…

[WFRP 1e] The Enemy Within 34

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…

[WFRP 1e] The Enemy Within 31

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….

[D&D 2e] Diadem of Destruction 7

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…

Bluker had hired us to transport some Cathayware to Marienburg…until someone tried to burn down our boat while it was in his slip, AND we found out that his merchandise was phony. Instead he has hired us to transport a crate overland to Middenheim. Before we left, a giant priest of Morr joined us. He stated he was hunting for the necromancer Ernst Heidelman. We had to tell the priest we had eradicated said necromancer from the Old World. The…

Martin has been uncharacteristically…not cautious since we got to Castle von Wittgenstein. That lead-lined box with the moon rock in it was awfully heavy to try to lift back out of the hole, so Martin picked up just the rock in his hands! Well, the guy morphed into all forms of freaky before putting the rock back. Now he’s stuck with a perpetual thumb halo around his scalp. I think from now on, Goblins are going to be afraid of…

We headed for the solarium. The first thing we noticed was birdsong coming from behind the dirty windows. Martin scouted the place out. He wasn’t very subtle about it, either. Strolled right in. Inside we found feathered human bird-men with songbird plumage. Martin found a cabinet and fed them birdseed. They weren’t interested in talking with us so we moved on. We passed by the gigantic pit in the center of the grounds. It was covered in tendrils of mist….
