  • Indigo, Androp, Koorin, and Ilero go drinking and gambling with the guard, Olif. Because... logic? After pissing off the thieves, hide out with the cops?

  • Nighttime discussions:
    • Branwyn: Wilamina isn't here, therefore she must be at Drake.
    • Captain Miltor: Gee, that's too bad. Why, we have a Wilamina Mosskin of our very own, right here at the Temple. What a coincidence! Can we borrow Indigo to fight hill giants?
  • Bob: Oh, btw, there are two Wilamina Mosskin's. The other one is 8 and a mage and will be a problem for you later.

  • Our Wilamina Mosskin is here, is not being held against her will, does not want to be disturbed, and threatens to cut Androp's balls off if he doesn't stop abusing the priest that cast Hold Person on Ilero.

Sep0712 Day 17 Ko ___ tre, Lec {Early Summer} 17th, 342 SKR. Vilmar Estates
  • Shurkural becomes a PC. She immediately finds the tracks and flirts them past the guard and toward the cisterns after the fleeing werewolves.
  • Branwyn hands out useful daggers like candy.
  • The party hears an injured old man who turns out to be a shamming weregator. He is driven off by a Light spell on his eyes. Unfortunately Shur was tracking the wrong wereprints.
    • Missed this on the first pass:

[Master] Werealligator: Attack: Bite: (15-(d20+0)) [1d20=20] -5. HITS Sarengar (AC FINAL: 6)!!! [CRITICAL HIT_(Roll Again)_] [Master] Werealligator: Attack: Bite: (15-(d20+0)) [1d20=13] 2. HITS Sarengar (AC FINAL: 6)!!!

  • The correct wereprints lead past 5 bodies (3 guard, 2 other (thief?)) to a small dock, a cut rope, and a missing skiff. Shur tells the group that the village of Haverring is a day's travel to the south, and has long had rumors of weres living around it.
Sep0812 Day 17 Ko ___ tre, Lec {Early Summer} 17th, 342 SKR. Vilmar Estates

  • Day 19 Fin ___ tre, Lec {Early Summer} 19th, 342 SKR.
    • A young black dragon tries its mettle against us. It grabs and flies off with Branwyn at one point. Sarengar takes his Polymorph potion and changes into a pegasus, and makes a flying catch when the dragon tosses her aside. The dragon surrenders to our overwhelming might. Sarengar attacks anyways, and Hoff and Sarengar slay it together. This upsets Branwyn a lot.
  • Day 20 Trall ___ se, Lec {Early Summer} 20th, 342 SKR.
    • A band of ghouls try to steal our river guide and are driven off.
    • The group reaches Haverring. Oddly for the middle of a swamp, all the buildings are made of stone.
    • A short chat with Dewint and the barman Val and suddenly everyone changes into werewolves and begins Kung Fur Fighting.
      • All four are quickly subdued and then all but one killed while helpless.
      • Then a werebear throws another one through the door of the tavern and kills it.
      • Mayor Sushell & Vexran (bear), talk with the party. The kidnapping weres seem to be outsiders to the town.
      • The Mayor forces the werewolves to give her back, but apparently she's been kidnapped from her kidnappers by someone from the Ghostwood Estates, belonging to the Drake family (aka Vampires).
Everyone Knows
Sep1412 Day 20 Trall ___ se, Lec {Early Summer} 20th, 342 SKR. Heavenring Village
  • The werewolves kidnapped Mina to try and get werewolf rights.
  • Sushell knew Arahael Mosskin back when he was a young adventurer. He gives the group directions to the Ghostwood Domain.
  • Vampires can only be hit by enchanted weapons or stakes. Cold iron or silver won't do anything. Casting Bless on a specific weapon also works.
  • Branwyn refuses healing as penance for the black dragon's death, until Wilamina is safely delivered.
  • There are two routes: the longer, safer route, and the shorter, more dangerous one going past a catoblepas.
  • Day 21 Lad ___ se, Lec {Early Summer} 21st, 342 SKR. Heavenring Village
    • The werebear serves the group honey and porridge for breakfast.
    • The group decides to go the long route.
    • Swamps got frogs. Big frogs.
Sep2112 Day 21 Lad ___ se, Lec {Early Summer} 21st, 342 SKR.
  • A shambling mound stumbles upon the group. Ilero attempts to lure it away from the party but gets stuck in the mud. A web spell was our backup in case of this situation, which snares both Ilero and the mound. Some judicious cutting and fireballs later...
  • Group of lizardmen beating the bushes looking for food. Koorin charms a few of them and causes a bunch of in-fighting. Survivors flee.
  • First watch: Indigo surprises and drives off an alligator.
Sep2812 Day 21 Lad ___ se, Lec {Early Summer} 21st, 342 SKR.
  • The night watch drives off a swarm of Bombardier Beetles.
  • Day 22 Ced ___ se, Lec {Early Summer} 22nd, 342 SKR.
    • Ilero and Hoffman spot some Boobrie birds lurking in the foliage ahead. Branwyn startles it off with a fireball and the party just walks past without being attacked or anything.
  • 03:19 AM. Day 23 Be ___ se, Lec {Early Summer} 23rd, 342 SKR.
    • What starts out as a swan carrying a lantern in the night turns into a blue light swarming around and zapping people with lightning. After getting knocked around a bit, the light promises treasure, if only one person will follow it. Naturally, it's a trap and Androp falls in a pool of quicksand. Fortunately he wasn't alone, and quick reflexes allow him to get himself out using his quarterstaff as a level.
    • The next morning the group passes a knight beating a peasant farmer while 3 other farmers stand by with heads bowed. Egalitarian Koorin takes offense to this and runs over to interfere. Combat Starts!
      • Oh wait, no. Koorin casts Hold Person on the knight, freezing him in place.
    • It turns out the farmers were collecting truffles from Sir Huklor's swampland, but didn't have the money to pay the truffle-taking tax until after they sold the truffles. Yes, it makes very little sense.
    • Koorin, offended at this perfectly sensical situation, starts unstrapping the armor from the knight. The farmers panic at being associated in any way with this action and hastily hand over their truffles to Koorin and head for the horizon.
    • Sir Huklor yells and curses at Koorin, and manages to slip loose from the ropes tying him up, but it's all for naught as Koorin merely uses another Hold Person spell.
    • She winds up charging him a lasso, 3 daggers, and a very nice long sword in taxes, while he's spellbound and unable to resist. The group walks off leaving him there.
