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.”

Greenskin Shaman

Session 16

February 8, 2018

Many changes occurred in this session!

The group pressed a belt buckle on a statue several times, and it fired a Whimsey Ray,, turning Umber Stroon into a halfling, Ned into an elf, granting a vision to LaCrosse, and tattooing Chu-Mi with a charm monster spell.

The rest of the session was occupied with defeating the greenskin shaman, who called up an undead giant human from under the cloister. With fire, arrow, and mace, the group defeated their foes with minimal damage. They found several potions, a scroll, and a cursed staff, as well as a collection black opals.

The Ruined Abbey

Session 15

February 1, 2018

The group approached the Ruined Abbey from the east, after having left the duplicitous savage elves in their forest. They set upon a ragtag guard unit of greenskins with arrows and slew them. Finding a fissure on the southwest side of the wasp wall, they entered the complex.

Glof was slain by a vroat, surprised as it leapt from its mushroomy lair. Chu-Mi set many traps outside the abbey, and the group easily dispatched of more greenskins with the incendiary liquid harvested from the battering bovile.

The PCs examined shrines of Lord of Light saints, and ended up camping in the room with the malfunctioning Sea of Tranquility magic mouth.

The Ormsmouth Look

Session 14

January 25, 2018

Travelling into the forest with the savage elves, the group was upon by different tribe of Savage Elves. The new tribe, which has a slight greenish cash to their skin and dress in a similar, but slightly different, fashion as the PC’s guides, claimed that the party’s companions are “evil” elves. A melee ensued, and the competing tribe slew the original elves. The victors offered to accompany the group to the Ruined Abbey to no avail.

Reaching the Wasp Wall which encircles the abbey, the Rustlers walked the circumference and discovered the “secret entrance”: a fissure in the southwest portion of the wall. Gathering back at their eastern arrival point, the group observed a squad of eight large, green, hairy, humanoid soldiers patrolling the wall. The PCs attacked the squad with bows, and eventually defeated them.

Entering the abbey complex via the fissure, the group came upon the outbuildings. The injured Glof, inspecting sulphurous-smelling mushrooms, was slain by a leaping vroat!

Savage Elves

Session 13

January 19, 2018

The group spent the session negotiating the Ranger’s Defile, which the Savage Elves (Veládshik) held to prevent adventurers safe from the threat of the Ruined Abbey. Lacrosse slew one of them, and now is entitled to his three wives (and seven childen) as property.

Chu Mi bested a Savage Elf in single combat. The Veládshik leader, Taric, praised the group’s prowess, and some of the PCs joined in the ritual feast of the corpse of the fallen warrior. Quick-cooking arms and face parts, mostly. Brains.
