Haverford 2013-2014 Graham campaign

Home of the Littles Elves

The party teleported from the coast to Jondale. Roland attempted to speak to the native, but because the native did not know common, Roland simply glared at him. The party noticed a large tree in the meantime, and decided to move towards it. Reaching the base of the tree, the party attempted to move through it, but a forcefield blocked their way…except for Avery. While Avery was able to get through. Annoyed, Roland attempted to sunder the door, but caught the attention of the guards. The guards question the party, saying that Roland should have a “human license” to be in the building.

Farewell, and Introduction
Rats coming and going

Meeting the Redcaps in the cage, the party members met some redcaps. They argued a bit, and the party members tried to determine the motive of the redcaps once freed. They seemed to willingly leave quietly, and thus the cage was busted open, and the party left.

...And not quite out of it yet.
When everything went wrong so fast.

Leaving the cave, the party attempted to find a place to rest. However, Avery noticed that someone was recently where the party currently was, and was heading back towards town. Avery turned into an eagle in attempt to catch up to the person. She followed him all the way into the mayors building and then followed a person to the southwest of town into a small, nice looking house surrounded by slum-like house. Meanwhile, Lucius entered the city, and went towards the Mayor’s building. Unable to do anything, he waited for the rest of the party to arrive, which they did soon after.

Deciding to distract the guards so that Lucius can enter the building, Leah screamed at the top of the lung about a mysterious guy. Lucius attempted to get into the building by breaking the window with a mace. However, that got the attention of the guards, who rushed in to attack Lucius. Lucius casted Fireball when the guard surrounded him. He managed to kill some soldiers, but then proceeded to gravely injure himself and was captured.

The party decided to follow Lucius and his captors. Despite Leah’s best attempts to gather information she was unsuccessful with Navani. Gareth watched them both, before slipping away to conduct his own business. Avery then turned into a snake and gained entry into the mysterious building. There, she managed to find a secret passageway, but was discovered in a bucket and was released. With her newfound knowledge, Avery got the attention of Leah and Navani in snake form and motioned that they should enter the building. At the attempt to enter, a monk questioned Leah about why she was interested in entering. Leah stated she wished to help the church.

Stuff happens, then a fight happens. (*To be updated *)

Into the fire....
And now our clothes smell like charcoal

Leaving the castle, the party traveled through the jungle towards the volcano. As they approached, the jungle clears away and an opening into the volcano was found. The party entered the cave, and walked through a dark tunnel. As they walked, they noticed dim light ahead. Gareth quickly made his way ahead to scout out the room, but unfortunately was heard from the room’s occupants. The party encountered two melee and 2 spellcasters, which they quickly dispatched of. In the room, Gareth found paper that seems to indicate a summoning, but no one in the party was able to decipher the writing. Moving on, Gareth again spotted another room with an elemental and two more mages, but Lucius alerted the group to the party’s location. The group then hastily fought the enemy and dispatched them. Moving on with an invisible Lucius in the lead, the party encountered two monks in a room with a crudely drawn circle in the middle. Hearing Lucius’ footsteps, the monks attacked the party, but they were quickly dispatched of just as the rest. While the party did their usual looting, Gareth moved on ahead….

Gareth soon reached a large cavern, which a cliff that overlooked magma below in. Chained against the wall was a magma dragon who just stared at Gareth. Cautiously, Gareth motioned the party to stop, but Lucius moved on ahead, with the party following. Gareth then decided to to just keep a lookout at the back of the cave while the party attempted to speak to the dragon. Avery and Lucius attempted the dragonic tongue, but to no avail. Suddenly, Navani and Gareth were blown from the tunnel into the cavern. 4 magi revealed themselves, with one blocking the door with a switch. The magi stated that they knew the party was coming and prepared to offer them as a sacrifice. The mage who unlocked the door released the dragon at the party. However, upon release, the dragon immediately attacked all 4 mages and annihilated them in an instant. Facing the party, the dragon expressed its distrust in them, and proceeded to attack. After a short battle, the dragon roared and stated “ENOUGH!”. Seeing as the party was not comprised of the cowardly mages, the dragon agreed to let them go in peace so long as they promised that no one else shall be sent to the location. The party (most of them) agreed so, and so the magma dragon dove right back into the volcano, allowing the party to retreat back into the cave. Xanthias.

Humans and Elves in the Temple of Madness

Shortly after the party untied Lucius, someone else fell down the hole. The person revealed themselves to be Navani, who followed the party, and heard their cries in the hole and decided to go down and aid them. The party got together and once again heard a young woman’s wailing. They came to the same living quarters to investigate, and there Lucius detected heavy magical presense in the area. The party came upon a boar with a tail-arm and magical assasin vines. Through a difficult battle full of grapples and entanglement, the party won, with Leah finding some new found strength to survive. After the fight, the party climbed a wall, down another hole, and came upon a room with a hallway and rubble. Gareth, forgetting to realize that he can disarm traps, sets of a boulder that hits most of the party. Recovering, the party came upon door i which Leah pokes through, poking a Emperor Kobra, angering it. The party managed to defeat it, with Lucius exacting snake venom from it. Finding nothing furthermore besides of the skeleton of a cat, the party left and made camp.

Leaving the party encountered fire mages in the jungle and REACHED MEA INU, (will update more later).

Don't shake more than twice.

As the party traveled on in the direction of the capital, they fell down a chasm, and landed in a pool. Groggy, the party, left the pool and venture out into the unknown. Charging ahead down a hall, Lucy came into a room, but set off a trap. A stone head shot constant fire and hampered the party’s process, but Gareth managed to disarm the trap. Recovering, the party heard a woman’s cry, and at that sound Gareth rushed up stairs to investigate with Lucius trailing behind. The two came upon a room with a stone tablet in the center of the room. Lucius took the tablet, and upon his fiddling, suddenly became belligerent and decided to run out of the room. The party chased him to some dark living quarters when they were suddenly attacked by faceless stalkers. Because Lucius was the only torchbearer, he extinguished the torch, causing the party to fight in darkness. However, Avery had the idea to use FLAMING SPHERE and light up the room. The party managed to see the stalkers and defeated them. However, Lucius was still belligerent, and so the party decided to subdue him. He managed to reach the pool room, and as an invisible entity with an invisilibilty spell, was difficult to catch. However, Avery managed to CRIT him, subduing him. The party took the tablet away, and Lucy woke up confused.

Everyone wakes up in room in a bed, save by (Lihuu) in Honale. Everyone woke up and bought items. Navahnee is a hot subject heard of in the time, a woman who is the town’s protector .After a shopping spree, the party went to a tavern to relax. Treating everyone to drinks, the party relaxed in the bar, until they heard a commotion outside. GOing outside, the entire party encounted a half-orc, attempting to rally the city to join the fire nation cause and rebel against Mea Inu. The townspeople did not decide to join, and at this point, the half-orc decided to attack. Fire mages appeared from around and started to slaughter the townspeople. The party fought, but it was a bitter fight. Leah was knocked out by a fireball from the main mage, and Gareth (after attempting to steal a sword from the magic shop) was taken down in two hits after attempting to reach the main villain. During the process, Navani (who is the town’s guardian) came from the beach to aid the party. The party managed to win. The villain’s dying last breath was telling the party that it will soon be over.

Note: The symbol found resembles the one the inquisitor bears.

After setting sail and Vasch taking the helm, Avery healed the party back to full health. With room to breath, the mysterious women asked Gareth to confirm who he is. He did, and was given a letter by the woman. Upon reading the letter, Gareth said that the women can be trusted. Avery had doubts, but Gareth assuaged his fears. The woman introduced herself as Leah, and the man as Basil. Gareth went to take a nap. Meanwhile, after sailing for a while, Vasch stated that the can’t sail because there is no more wind. Basil took the first watch, and Leah decided to sleep on the deck. During the time, Lucy and Avery found a chest and looted it. Then they went to sleep.

Night falls, and silence descends upon the ship. Suddenly, Lucy is woken up by a noise on deck. He goes out into the dark, lights his lamp, waking Leah. He checks the source of the noise along with Leah, and sees a mysterious creature. Upon this, he blew his whistle, waking up Gareth and Avery and Vasch. Leah and Avery tried talking to the Kelpy, who commanded an attack. Suddenly, a brikolagas and three brine zombies boarded the deck and attacked. The party fought and won, while Avery managed to pull Basil from the water. However, attempts to resuscitate Basil failed, and he remained unconscious. The party then decided to sail forward. Along the ride, Avery spotted a dragon in the far off distance being attacked by a sea monster. Vasch, Gareth, and Leah argued vehemently to avoid the creature, but in the end, Lucius persuaded Vasch to get closer to the creatures with gold. The party got close to about 100 feet. The party then argued further on whether or not they should help the creature, until Lucius decided to attack the identified turtle-shark with Glitterdust. Enraged, the monster chased the dragon to the boat. The monster attacked the dragon, but it safely landed on board. As the party attempted to aim the cannon, the turtle-shark slammed into the boat, knocking a majority of the party prone. THROUGH MIRACLES, Vasch managed to overload the gunpowder, and the resulting cannonball decimated the monster.

The dragon thanked the party, and will never forget what they did for them. While all this happened, the storm came closer. The ship began to get tossed around and everyone went below deck. Then Lucy realized that everyone should take the sails down, so that the ship doesn’t get tossed around. Everyone besides Gareth went up. Vasch and Lucy tried to get the sails down. Leah and Avery went to help, and the sails went down….but then the storm hit. The waves hit the boat. EVeryone stayed on, but people were getting tossed and injured, with people trying to get down. However, Vasch was knocked off the ship. Avery attempted to turn into a shark, but before that, a rope was tired around Avery then she turned into a shark. She managed to reach Vasch, who grabbed onto Avery. They were both pulled in by Lucy and Leah and Vasch was tossed onboard. Everyone huddled together. Suddenly, a big waved hit, and the resulting momentum knocked everyone unconscious……

Sail Ho!
Shit happens

The party managed to clean themselves off and head down the main street. While walking down the street, a guard noticed the wolf and questioned the party, which at this point Lucius faded away to an ally. The guard slowly realized who the party is, and before he is able to alert everyone else, Lucius threw a thunderstone to get the guards attention. However, he got himself trapped, and in order to get out, threw alchemist fire at himself and the guards. A fire erupted in the allyway, with Lucius burning himself in order to disguise himself as a hurt civilian. Unperturbed by the pain, he busted into the next house and tried to douse himself with holy water, but only made the fire worse on himself and the house. With no other option, Lucius (cool as a cucumber) decided to cut off his own ears to look less elf-like. At this point, he busted through into a second house, and decided to intimidate the person inside. At this point, he cleaned himself, got new clothes, (and stole stuff), tied up the guards, and busted out.

WHILE ALL THIS IS HAPPENING, and the party was about to hide, a mysterious women named Lily came out when the crowd was dispersing, saw Hina and FIlge, and confronted them. It turns out as Gareth can gleam from the conversation that Lily is HIna’s mother, who was accused of cheating on Filge. While Lily was trying to make amends, Filge wouldn’t have any of it and attempted to hide and leave, while the rest of the party was hiding. While the party was trying to escape into the hallway, Lucius attempt to leave the house, but then was detained by two guards. Realizing the necessity of the wizard, Gareth and Vasch (convinced) went to perform coup de grace. With no hindrance, the party left towards the boat.

Arriving at the boat, they found 9 men guarding the boat. After defeating the boss, the rest of the alive troops scatter. As the party was boarding the boat, Lily stopped Filge, saying she won’t let him take Hina aboard since it’s dangerous. Filge decided to separate from the rest of the party and take HIna to a safe place. Gareth and K’vet wished them both farewell, while Lucius dragged one of the dead guard’s body on board. The Inquisitor appeared, and glared at the party with utter anger, as they sailed away…….
