Silfrek Campaign

Session 66

Decide to bring to temple of Bahumut in Merrifield. Have Helm of Teleportation ready to go if need be. Leaving ever-smoking bottle in tomb to help with protection.

Have leader cured of green-eyes.

Head to Merrifield, Biero sends illusion to confront us on the way – he offers us paltry things for the bloodstone, we refuse. We head to Merrifield and speak with Priest Alebrewer at temple of Bahumut. Give him the bloodstone in Dorsidhion’s bag of holding and the helm of teleportation. He gives us a scroll of protection from fiends and from fey.

Plan to head to wyvern nest to get poison. Then to Violetcliff to get scroll to imitate bloodstone magical signature. Then perhaps to Dorsidhion’s grove.

Session 65

Defeat black hand outside of cave. Find 400gp in tent. Find journal of black hand. Says place silver in hand to open it. The armor that lines the crypt comes to life. Had sent pustaloids in to attack. Heard roaring flames and the pustaloids would sometimes act weird (possibly stop attacking).

Male dwarf with shield (shield) – Duvald Greatpike, female human with sword (warrior) – Maybelle Laverick, male human with book (chronicler) – Edmund Diggles, small humanoid – ruined statue (betrayer). Mordecai reassembles broken statue – it is a male dwarf with name Lennox Bloodtank, carrying two daggers

St. Millesant is patron of warriors and motherhood. Murels of her on the wall, depicting her coming into sainthood. Also fighting giants.

When Dorsidhion goes forward, the suits of armor move to stop him. Male dwarf with shield sacrifices himself to save Millesant but is later revived by Silfrek.

As move forward light in crypts shift color (shield to green, betrayer to yellow). Spirits of heros inhabit the armor. We don’t make headway with the shield – wants us to prove ourselves as better protectors. We go to betrayer and learn he agrees with our desire to protect the populace and lets us pass. Speak with chronicler – let’s us pass since we want knowledge and show we are of pure intent.

Biero wants to sculpt land of Silfrek itself by using a gargantuan sacrifice. He needs the bloodstone for this purpose. Abyss is involved. Those who use green eyes are not only addicted but could be use as a focus for chaotic energy. (Ingrediants from fey wild and abyss). To cure people need act of greater magic / gods. So green eyes people may be sacrifice.

Hulk out people have focus contained within necklace which allows a demon of the abyss to inhabit their body. Hags are involved with demon pacts.

Tells us St. Helena may have more info on Green Eyes.

Session 64

The inn where the Black Hand is staying is the Thirsty Porter.

Go to leader’s house. Take out black hand guard. Find dwarf leader and learn that put silver in Millesant’s hand. But 4 spirit’s guard tomb: betrayer, shield, warrior, chronicler. Two black hand’s were at inn (they come to house and we killed them). Two more are with elf (Gaillarde) at tomb.

Find two potions – potion of mana (Mordecai) and potion of vitality. Vial of poison.

Find letter says: 3 bandits, a new cluster of pustaloids, two priests, and two heralds – if that doesn’t do job, cannot help you Probably backup that will arrive this evening.

Come upon Gaillarde and get into battle.

Session 63
On the road again

Kill snow-elves. We find: Pair of nice boots (Boots of Tracks), potion (fire resistance), 6 gems (moonstones 50g each), snow-drop lily, 2 more ice seeds

Boots of Tracks: While wearing these boots, you can command them to leave tracks identical to those left by any other creature. You may choose which creature you will emulate; it must be no more than one size larger or smaller than you.

We know that the bloodstone is associated with St. Millisant.

Black hand have taken over this town. Elven woman took over town. Tried to send messengers out, but none have come back. Some people come down from upstairs who frighten the whisper contact Naivarra was talking to.

We decide next time we will strike on elven woman and then other 3 black hand members since they seem close to getting the bloodstone.

Session 62

Allies include Griza (bard), Berwyn heavygut, librarian.

Get amulet of proof against detection and location for 500g and gorgon parts from tim tam.

Naivarra gets info from a Whisper agent. A hit is put out on White Hearts from a Black Hand person Galliana. Also, Biero wants the bloodstone from Butterbridge near Merriville. He sent regiment to get it. (Old magic, not work I am aware of).

While we stay at temple of helm cannot be visited in dreams. Also safe from scrying for 25g per night.

Set out for butterbridge, should arrive 1 day before regiment. Encounter snow elves along the way.

Session 61
Oh shit

Paul the secretary brings Belarra into Wulfa office. Part of conversation – people are not supposed to be able to teleport off campus. Jeffrey Merfoll – a fancy-pancy mage (top ranking in college, advisor of Wulfa, upper leader of Blue Brotherhood) – gets story as well. Scoffs at idea of brotherhood being involved.

Interrogate wizard from arcane college (Clement). Defensive of blue brotherhood anytime they are mentioned, lots of ‘I don’t recall/they aren’t involved’. When ask about Pagan, he (poorly) says he doesn’t know who that is. When talk about Lamont, says he came to the brotherhood. Wanted to know history of city – who founded it, why districts have their names – but we know Clement is lying (omission).

Clement gives up that Lamont wanted information on weather and protection crystal for the city of Violetcliff. Says Theobald was not involved but is obviously lying. Blue brotherhood takes Clement away after this.

Welsys Knackle (mid-cliffs) was dead on arrival, with parchment with a crab claw on it. Lillian Blessedborn (second-in-command) was captured. Under-cliffs person (Nathie) was not captured (got away). Overrun by ghouls – crazed green-eye addicts.

Belarra notes that Jeffrey is getting updates (he’s coming back, he spoke). Party meets with Wulfa with Kirk Flatforge with note from Lt. Dumain.

From Lillian, learn Bierro Nalto moves around a lot, but correspondence mainly comes from east. They were trying to find additional revenue sources and were buying old mines.

Dorsidhion is visited by meenloch, a fey creature thing that runs away.

Belarra dreams about huge shadow man, probably squirrel kicker.

Belarra will listen in on disciplinary committee.

Dorsidhion notices Belarra, Mordecai, and Corgryn have cut on left pointer finger fingernail. Means they have piece of us for scrying, etc.

Session 60

Fight with dwarf and wizards. Capture lesser wizard. Dwarf and other wizard escape. Mordecai and Pavel went down. Teleport to Pillar of Eldath. Belarra stays in college to speak with headmaster.

Naivara stole some very fine robes (10), 20 gp each

Wulfa Anskuld – headmaster
Geoffrey Merfall – high in brotherhood
Lyneya Scroggs – librarian

Find letter from Lamont to General Tristam Gate – general of Hukumdarian army, to help against Silfrek. Another letter in giant – correspondence with a giant yarl Ragnhild Ã…smundottir – to form an alliance. Another letter, addressed to W, about frustration in failing to find ‘the item’. Last is sealed letter – from Great and Honorable Hagmar Sianendel (leader of Order of Pure Self) – process slower than expected but enough units should be provided by deadline. Name of wizard whose room we were in is Theobald Housely.

Next time – Belarra will speak with Headmaster. Party will talk with Lte. Dumain.

Rescue the sorceress!
Session 58

An order of tieflings malice was ordered. After much delay, and growling, Mordecai delivered the malice, unfortunately late in the initiative order so he died.

Session 57

We go to Lord Chubb for dinner. Corgryn is not able to sneak into the yard area. There are 3 dwarf guards, outside searching, 1 human inside.

Family not actually rich. He has no confidence and confesses everything about his own life. Lamont pays for all his stuff. He is terrified of Lamont. He is the introduction but not part of the meetings. He has seen Pagan once – describes as man of shadow. Gives me a list of all nobles he’s met with. Some are major players. There 17 total. Lamont comes with a bodyguard, if Pagan comes, there will also be a 4th person. Chubb was promised a keep (in the barony) from a rival family that caused part of his destitution. He was also promised their daughter.

We try to get group in as guards but Harry flubs getting the Lamont hired guards to leave. Corgryn and Naivarra sneak in. Lamont joins for dinner in the meeting room. Asks Belarra how she would feel if Silfrek didn’t win the war.

Belarra with Lamont and Harry in the meeting room. Naivarra and Dorsidhion in storage room. Mordecai outside the door to the basement. Corgryn in the library down the hall.

Belarra meeting with Lamont – She tells him she has connections to high ranking nobles in territory Alaghsun of in Hukumdar. Including Daniel Icke, Colonel in the army in Hukumdar, friends to Innsbrooks. Natalia says she is close with his son. There is some one else in the room who is invisible and informing. Also book is gone. He realizes Belarra has arcane abilities, considers how it can be used to his advantage. Human man appears, early 30s, he is in functional clothing and armor but he seems uncomfortable in it, pendant of Azuth on his neck, with symbol of Brotherhood of Blue on his neck. Belarra lets Lamont know that she charmed Lord Chubb which gains her some respect. He is wearing plated armor, has a helm, has a large maul with an enchanted blue gem in it (abjuration). He is not super intelligent, more of a brute, has mage to supplement in other areas. Offers docking and trading rights in Wyvernfield to further ’Natalia’s’ influence in Silfrek. Says they are friends with Baronness there. Better Belarra does at helping them will give her more power. Wants: Get in contact with Colonol Ike. Bringing Lady Livina Batkin to Lamont with something he can use to influence her. I ask about a docks not being profitable due to freezing over. He doesn’t think it will be an issue. But doesn’t seem to know much more about an unnatural force here.

Belarra asks a servant to bring the Tieflings Menace to seal the deal with Lamont. Belarra will twin hold person on Lamont and mage. Or if things are bad for me before anyone comes, dimension door to outside of basement on first floor.
