There’s a Bad Smell Coming From the Hole

Session 26

October 12, 2018

After a short respite in the shrine of Saint Hamish, Rovanjal lit the saint’s spirit candle in hopes of receiving a blessing. But it was not to be, as the statue transmogriphied into a ravernous toad demon! After a pitched battle, the group slew the Infernal beast and collected its acidic blood in bottles.

Smelling something foul on the air, the group headed to the overgrown cloister, where they were waylaid by three bipedal “stinkfish”. Rovanjal broke out the their net in a feat of heroic strength, and Erfu decapitated two of the reeking monsters with a single mighty blow from his cursed bastard sword.

The unnatural thunderhead above grew worse and a bolt of octarine lightning smote the broken altar. A naked man, covered in frost, lay there shivering. Mr. Umber Stroon offered him healing, and he came to. The man indentified himself as the Knight of the South Wind, explaining that he had been mastered by a fearsome foe in “the battle at the Edge of Chaos”.

As a Paladin, He’s a Bit Average

Session 25

May 17, 2018

Although the Hall of Illusions offered the many tempting vices of the One Who Serves, the party did not choose to imbibe. They retreated to the home base in the shine of Saint Hamish, and recovered their spells. Then, they returned to the second level of the dungeon, where Erfu, Paladin of Haldar the Victorious, discovered a magical sword clutched in a skeleton’s hand.

A squad of mercenaries and a wingcat headed for the Chaos War in Diz, led by the squat and tough captain Lorin, entered the abbey, guided by a dream that they are to assist in ridding the place of Infernals.

Haruspicy

Session 19

March 8, 2018

Members of the group returned to the shrine of Saint Hamish to receive various rewards. Most notably, Umber Stroon was hit with whimsey, which turned his skin silver (in coloration, not texture or hardness).

Ned the Elf magically read the runes embedded in Kaerleon, the jade runesword, and identified its powers. He also read the runes on King Grav’s effigy and, as a result, was magically geased to find the Wand of Foobahdoobah, within a year and a day. To aid him on his quest, he now can cast ESP once per day when actively engaged in the quest.

The party battled the demon guardians in the Outer Hall of Temple of the One Who Serves. LaCrosse decapitated a demon in a fountain of yellow ichor just as it was travelling back to its home plane, and Chu-Mi used his charm monster tattoo to enslave the other demon, Mack.

Invisible Pantomime Horse

Session 18

March 1, 2018

Umber Stroon negotiated with the captain of the Greenskins, who offered to cooperate, claiming that they were both after the Abbot’s Apple, a fabulous black emerald said to the in the dungeons of the Ruined Abbey. Eventually the Greenskins went their own way, down the hole created by the shaman upon summoning the undead giant. The goupd threw flaming bovine juice down the hole on the Greenskins’ heads.

The adventureres forged on into the chamber containing King Grav’s (an ancient Realm monarch) effigy. Finding a hidden stairway within, they descended into snow-covered, hilly landscape. There, they met Nyelmu the Undying, who rode a bone-write scorpion as big a a moose. Nyelmu explained to them that he was imprisoned by the Gods. The group attempted to release the golden key which ends his imprisonment, but were unable to reach through the magic force which protected it.

Unable to help Nyelmu, the group returned to the effigy chamber, where they discovered the stairs leading down to level two of the abbey.

Saint Hamish, I Love You!

Session 17

February 22, 2018

The group continued exploring the Ruined Abbey, and learned that the shrine of Saint Hamish can provide healing magic. Two lightning lizards who approached the party and showed their willingness to tag along with the party and eat anything dead and tasty that happened to come their way.

Umber Stroon found a bone scroll case under a loose rock in the shrine room. Opening the scroll released the Rosy Mist of Reason into the room, and the lizards got interested in snacking on slow-moving humans. After a frightful battle, the lightning lizards were slain.

Stroon found a scroll of Speak With Dead inside of the trapped scroll case. The author of the scroll requests the reader to retrieve his mother’s bones from his wife Aveline’s grave. Furthermore, the author stated that Aveline should “rot forever in the deepest of Hells.”
