The Cobblers

Session 10: Roots and Revelations

The Cobblers prepare themselves for the wedding of Pheleia and Tarkeen. As they prepare, the Sultan pays each of them a visit to fulfill each of their request. For Leana she is given a notebook filled with names of her family and the places they were sent, for Kie-Pear he was given 4 slaves, two boys and two girls. Nella the bard was given a harp as a gift and was told she would be providing the music for the wedding. Pheleia was given two personal bodyguards.

The wedding went off with a hitch, the food was flowing as well as the wine. The honeymoon phase was even sweeter as all of the palace could hear the passionate cries of Tarkeen and Pheleia.

The next morning during breakfast, Tarkeen asked them of their plans. They had plan to go to Zarafel Castle before heading home to Myant, but the Prince warned them of trouble in the city of Myant. Riots and civil disorder where happening as reported by travelers and caravans.

The cobblers returned in haste to Myant to find the city indeed in chaos as well as fliers littering the streets. The fliers read:

“The governor knows! He is a liar! The Prince still lives!”

The party made it to their base of operations for a moment’s rest. Their maid Constance informed them that the troubled of the city happened a week after they left for Blackwell Prison. Some of the members decided to visit Governor Aoth to learn of the happenings. It was their they learned the chaos was dude to a cult named The Spiders Shadow who was looking for the Prince. The cobblers learned that the governor, in an attempt to save the kingdom years ago, killed of the King and Queen because they had made some sort of agreement with dwellers of the underdark. Governor Aoth then told them he could not kill a child so instead imprisoned the prince for his own safety. It was also during the riots that the Rod of Kings and Commander Stormcloaks sword were stolen. Returning home, their butler Jeeves mentioned that perhaps a magical item was being used upon the citizens of the city.

In the morning Kerjiit, Pheleia and her body guards, visited the Tomb of the King and Queen to see if their bodies were amiss. After exhuming the bodies, Kirgiit found a small trace of magical energy still upon the king and queen. At the same time the other half of the party spied upon a rally where they noticed an odd tattoo on one of the demonstrators. After the rally they cornered the man in an alleyway were he told them things in the city were only a distraction for things to come and that the time of the Spider Queen’s return was soon. He also told them that there were at least a dozen cult members still inciting revolt within the city and that the main force of the cult were holed up within Castle Zarafel. The man then took his own life on Leana’s sword.

As the group got back together they decided to visit Commander Stormcloak for more answers. The found the commander beaten up and in a bed within the barrack grounds. He had taken a beating defending the city. The group told the commander of the location of the cult members and the Commander told him his men would be in their service should they need it.

Kie-pear, Nanisar, and Pheleia, awake to hear they are summoned by Govenor Aoth. Nanisar and Pheleia go to the meeting while Kie-pear decides to observe the soldiers as they train.

Naniar and Pheleia receive a mission to accompany Archmage Pycell to the Village of Eliond up north in the Othelion Kingdom. They are also given a letter of intent and safe passage between Othelion Kingdom and Zarafel Kingdom. They are told to find Archmage Pycell at the Lyceum in the Temple District.

At the same time, Kie-Pear is observing a pit fighting training between the soldier. Commander Stormcloak calls him out to fight. Words are exchanged and in the end Kie-pear is forced into a match. The commander leaves the monk battered and bruised.

After a few hours, the party heads towards the Lyceum where they meet up with Kajiit as he is practicing spells. Pycell tales with the group a bit and hands Kajiit a spell focus, A gold medalion with a picture of a dragon printed on it. They decide to take a ship up North and hop aboard The Sovereign.

During the voyage, Kie-pear spies a caravan across the sandy coast of the desert. He learns from Captain Picard that they are slave dealers. He also has a one on one session with Archmage Pycell and learns that the Archmage is fleeing for his life. The reasons of which still allude Kie-Pear.

A week has passed at sea and the group find themselves in severe storm. To make matters worse, a band of pirates led by the half orc Krusk Seabane and his Griffon attack the ship. A fierce battle rages while the ship and its passengers battle both for and nature itself. The pirates are overwhelmed by savage attacks from Pheleia and her Greataxe as well as the arcanic powers of Nanisar and Kerjiit. The monk Kie-Pear and his flurry of blows does short work as well.

The day after the battle, Archmage Pycell imparts his wisdom to Kerjiit and teaches him the counterspell.

Before they reach land, Kie-pear talks with the group and shares with them what information he found on the would be assassins. Everyone agrees that they must keep their wits about them.

On land, Archmage Pycell thanks them for their help and gives the party a rune of teleportation. At Othelion Castle they are well received by King Othelion and are subsequently given a mission to find out what is attacking the livestock of the farmers East of the Castle as well as the whereabouts of soldiers that were previously sent to investigate the matter. They know it is possibly beast or wolves and a child among the attackers.

During that time, Kie-pear follows Archmage Pycell and greets him farewell as he takes a portal to the town of Eliond north of Othelion Castle.

Nanisar heads to the local library and learns what he can about the Zarafel Kingdom and the name Elron. He learns that King Eoden and his generation go back 4 generations and that there is a family named of Elron who are drows that fought in the Blood Wars of the Underdark. He does not seem to find a connection between the names.

Kerjiit and Pheleia go east to the farming areas to talk to the lead farmer about the happenings. They learn that the attacks on the livestock happen at night and only the edge of the farms are attacked. They tell the lead farmer to keep the best livestock closeby and the more “spotted” livestock on the edges. They decide to return in another night.

The party meet up again at a tavern where Kerjiit and Pheleia get “drunk” and kicked out for fighting. As they sober up, the party decided to look for a cheap place to stay while Kie-pear and Nanisar head to the farming areas to set up a plan to catch the livestock attackers.

Kie-pear, Nanisar, Phelaia, and Kajiit find themselves arrested and thrown into the dungeons below the governor’s mansion. They are each interrogated by Commander Vurst Stormcloak about their actions and about the Rod of Rulership. They are found to be guilty of thievery and violent acts and sentenced to be executed.

The day of the execution, they are pardoned by Governor Aoth Arizma and sent on a mission to rid a forest of a band of lizardfolk or die trying. Before departing on the mission, they spend some time finishing a delivery for Gilmore.

The adventurer decide to disrupt the ritual and combat ensues. Phelaia falls unconscious, but the party is victorious. Kie-pear skins one of the lizardfolk of its feet and beheads another to show proof of their kills.

Once back at town, they are acknowledged by Commander Stormcloak of their skills and given a room to rest.

The next day, Commander Stormcloak tells them they are to be hidden guards at the Governors Mansion for the celebration of the founding of Myant. They decide to ready themselves for the party by visiting Gilmore’s Goods as well as other shops.

The night of the party as Govenor Aoth makes his speech, he is attacked by assassins. The party along with the guards easily dispatch the assassins. Kie-pear finds a note in one of the assassins belongings and proceeds to bring the assassin to the dungeon cells.

Nanisar and Phelaia meet with a recovering Governor Aoth who thanks them for their efforts and ask them to work for them. “I will not take no for an answer,” he says. They agree to work under him then leave him to rest.

Session 2: Special Delivery
A New Challenger Arrives

Kie-pear, Peilaia, and Nanisar decide to run back to the museum to inform Vanessa and Valdrak of the relic. They learn the history of The Zeofel Kingdom that King Eoden died of an illness and his son committed suicide. They also learn that Aoth Arizma became governor of Myant in the wake of the King’s death. They showed the note found from the werehouse to the museum curators, but they could not figure things out. Instead they told them to leave the city unless the theives came back. Vanessa told them to keep the rod, and paid them for their services.

After visiting the museum the adventurers paid a visit to Gilmore’s Glorious Goods where they met Seline and also Sean Gilmore. Prices were a bit stiff for the adventurer, but on promise to deliver some goods from the harbor, Gilmore said he would possibly give them some discount on top of the 10% of the grand opening.

They decided to get some rest at Mary’s Inn. Peilaia and Nanisar tried to stir the rod of rulership (which they learned from Gilmore was a legendary artifact) but nothing happened.

In the morning, they met up with a Dragonborn Warlock who had a penchant for flirting as well as thieving. Together they set about to retrieve the good at the harbor for Gilmore, but were attacked by the thieves from the warehouse. It was a hard fought battle with both the dragonborn and the tiefling becoming unconscious (the dragonborn being saved by Nanisar). In the end, they defeated the thieves but immediately arrested by the city guards lead by Vurst Stormcloak.

Session 1: Missing from Myant

The adventurers meet aboard a ship named The Sovereign headed to the coastal city of Myant. While walking through past the various vendors they are stopped by a dwarf named Valdeer who ask for their help. He leads them to a museum to meet with his wife Vanessa. Vanessa tells them they are curators and that a relic rod belonging to King Eoded was stolen a night ago. Vanessa petitions the adventurers to seek out the relic which they do.

The half Elf’s Nanisir, Cassandra, and Sophia decide to visit the Governor’s mansion but to no success. The guards merely brush them off. At the same time, Phelaia the Tiefling Barbarian and Kie-Pear the monk decide to seek out information at the Dragon Maw’s Tavern. They find a lead in a Half Orc who tells them to meet in the back alley. At this time the other half of the party meets up with them. The half orc tells the group that they are asking too many questions and a fight ensues. The party quickly dispatches of the thugs, stripping the half orc down to his loin cloth and stuffing him in a box. Unfortunately one of the thugs flees. The party find a note which reads:

“MEET AT THE HARBOR. #115. WATCH OUT FOR THAT OLD MAN.”

Cassandra and Sophia decide to stay and guard the unconcious half orc while the rest of the party go looking for the clues in the harbor.

At the harbor, Nanisir, Phelaia, and Kie-Pear find warehouse marked #115. They find the thug that ran away from the earlier fight telling his friends about almost getting beat up, but his cry falls to deaf ears. Meanwhile, the group devise a plan to involving the guards playing cards, control flame, mage hand, stealing some gold coins. It works and chaos ensues.

In the chaos the Monk Kie-Pear successfully climbs up the back of the warehouse, sneaks in and finds the relic rod as well as other gold and other shiny trinkets. He also finds another note that reads:

“DROG, YOU WERE PAID GOOD MONEY. DO NOT FAIL ME. MASTER EODED DOES NOT DO KINDLY TO FAILURE. WE NEED ALL OF HIS BELONGINGS. THE TIME OF HIS RETURN IS SOON. ~ELRON”

With haste, Kie-Pear drops the rod from the window into the waiting hands of Phelaia. As Phelaia holds the rod it glows faintly with a magical white hew. With relic in hand the party decides to return in haste to the museum.
