The Cobblers

Session 26: Finding The Hive

The Dragon introduced himself as Orion and he was the elf in the forrest. He merely wanted to test them—they passed.

The Cobblers told him about their need for some adamantium and Orion produces as giant meteor made out of Adamantium. He ask the Cobblers to tell him a story each. Their goals, their dreams. The Cobblers find out that Orion is probably just a lonely type.

Orion then ask them to fight him, to “test their muscle.” The fight is fierce, but with some well placed headshots they manage to have Orion surrender. The party takes a long rest while Leana decides to make a bargain with the Dragon: If we survive the war in the east, give us a quarter of your gold.

“Deal.”

Coming back down the mountain, the party see a party of Orcs in the forrest and one in particular with wings. They decide not to interfere.

Coming back to the Wolves Den, they show Fontaine the adamantium. He and Leana decide to start melting the metal for plating their weapons. Before that happens, they are sent off to two missions.

Secure Soldier clothing to easily influtrate the city.
Find Marco’s missing arm and pack.

Konowa and Leana decide to sneak into a nearby barracks within the city and cause a distraction while picking locks.

Phelaia, Garrus, and Nella go to a toy store in the city and find Marcos arm as well as a sample of the mud men in a glass vial. Not all goes well as Garrus is almost arrested. Well placed nut shots take care of trouble.

A week passes the weapons are ready, as well as the makeshift mud men compass. The figure out there are 3 places of interest: The city grave yard, a tavern cellar, and the clocktower of the city. Garrus tells them the clock tower also acts the Lord Lycuis and Lady Gwenlyn Bairerose abode. They decide to go to the graveyard.

The compass point them to a masoleum and with the help of a local gravekeeper they enter. They find the walls are flesh like see find some citizens trapped within egg like pods. Leana decides to free as many people as she can while Konowa explores deeper and decides to lay black power all over. He find another chamber filled with 5 foot eggs and puts more blackpower around.

Konowa then discovers a mud creature and a battle commences. They quickly defeat the creature then decide before more come to destroy the place. Leana is hesitant and wants to save more people, but everyone decided that for the greater good, colladeral damage must happen.

They escape, saving 14 townsfolk, while the moseleum massively explodes.

Session 25: Adamantium

After coming into the Wolves Den the Cobblers are greeted by three halflings, Melody, Tiku, and Marco. They also see Garrus training two werewolves. They find out the wolves are Celeste and Kaheel.

Sir Jonathan Fontaine tells the group he was trailing the mud creatures trying to find out where they are based from. He also tells them one of Leana’s twin brother has gotten captured by a creature so he has a responsibility to find him again. His plan is two fold: 1) Harvest a vein of adamantium to make the only weapons that hurt these creatures. 2) Find where these creatures reside and rescued the twin brother.

The group decides to find the adamantium and they leave in the evening (only after finding out that Garrus is bi and cleaning up the closets). On top of their flying carpets, the travel to the Clocktower district to the entrance of the cave that travels into the mountain. As the group travels, Kie-pear and Konowa hear someone shouting for help. As they investigate the find a man trapped under a tree branch. The help free him and the man shows them to his small cottage. The man tells them that at the top of the mountain a dragon lives but it may just be rumor. As they leave the cottage instantly turns into an abandoned one. Creepiness ensues.

As they comtinue onward, Garrus is attacked by a gigantic, blue salamander like creature that breathes electricity. They dispatch the creature quickly and head further into the mountain. The weather becomes harsher and harsher until they find themselves un a beautiful clearing with a crystal blue lake and a massive waterfall.

Session 24: A War is Brewing

We leave off with the Cobblers shopping at the Bazaar in the city of Myant. Phelaia goes to meet with Prince Tarkeen and he ask her to return to the palace with him. She tell him, “Can you give me a day to think about it?” He agrees.

Elsewhere some of the party meet an eccentric shop owner who tries to sell them a flying carpet. They also meet two other children who seem to be urchins from the city of Al-Mammoun looking for food. Leana takes them in.

Heading home, they hear word of war happening The Waste, a frozen land in the East of Faenirim. Some of their personal goals (Kerjiit seeing his brother via his crystal ball, Leana wanting to visit other places to look for her family, a visit to Barpool to deliver the cube to a safe vault) take them in that direction and after much deliberation they decide to head to Destone first to meet with John Fontaine and the Wolves Bane.

They acquire two magic carpets from the eccentric shop owner (due in part to Kerjiits haggling skills) and travel a week across desert and mountain.

When they arrive to Destone they find part of the city empty. They stop by a tavern to ask for directions. The barkeep they meet acts very strangely around them, but they pay it no mind. After a while an old man walks into the bar and makes a little small talk then leaves a silver sword on the table. He approaches the barkeep and slices his head off revealing a mud golem type creature.

The battle is fierce and no weapon seems to be doing any damage to it with the exception of the silvered sword and fire. Someone has the idea of throwing black powder on the creature and setting it ablaze.

Grabbing the old man, the party barely escape before the bar explodes with the creature still inside.

The old man leads them into what seems like an abandoned bar and introduces himself, “Illiyanna was right about you, but where are my manners. Sir John Fontaine of the Howls Bane. Welcome to Destone.”

During the meeting, Illiyanna ask if they would be interesting in joining the howl’s bane, a underground guild whose purpose is to destroy monstrosities and abominations of the world. Illiyanna tells them of the history of the Bane and tells them they would be welcomed in their number. The work is dangerous but the rewards are great.

They also learn the Howl’s Bane recruits those touched by curses and evil so that they may battle the darkness themselves.

The Cobblers agree and are at once given a mission to question Kurtis, one of the members of the consortium, about the lycan attacks in the city.

After clearing out the jail cell, The Cobblers proceed more cautiously into the cave. They find a room filled with black power, a half flooded, foul smelling cave, the entrance to lab, and the main quarters of the Necromancer. There they find Kaheel chained up to the bed. He tells the group he chained himself up because the necromancer told him he would help curse him of his lycanthropy. They find that the chain is magical and any attemps to remove the chain would end up in a loss of limb. They also find that the chain suppresses Kaheels urges to transform.

Kie-pear and Kerjiit find letters detailing the necromancers secrets along with a common name in both: Illiyanna Doren, one of the members of the consortium of six.

Finding a switch that controls the lab, The Cobblers enter it only to find it occupied with a flesh golem… a golem that is actually a container for a black pudding. They make quick work of the creature.

Items found in session: Universal Solvent, Glue, Angel Hair Bow String, two letters.

After bagging the head of Thoril the Necromancer, The Cobbler’s decide to join up with The Howl’s Bane. They head towards the highborn district to meet with the leaders of the city also known as the Consortium of 6. Leading the consortium is a snobbish gnome who informs the party that only half the reward will be given and even less than that for not finding where the Necromancer has his lair.

There is also trouble in town with several werewolves or weretigers. 2 new jobs are made for each group to choose:

Look for Thorils hideout and destroy any evidence of his work, but any important documents should be returned.
Find and destroy the werewolves plaguing the city.

The Howl’s Bane (already annoyed at the buracratic red tape of not getting fully paid) decide to find the werewolves.

The Cobblers head North to find Thoril’s hideout. Before they depart Soren of the Howls Bane says Thoril may be hiding at an abandoned Goliath Village since that is the only thing if importance up there.

It takes 3 days to if traveling during which the party was attack by a giant, but was quickly dispatched by Phelaia. Kie-Pear decides its a good idea to harvest a giants finger. They hurl the body off the side of the mountain which hits with a loud thud.

They find the abbandoned village and see that there are foot prints that lead into a cave. Inside the cave they find jail cells littered with bodies. Nella spies a silver necklace with a saphire gem in its center and decides she wants it. As Kie-Pear reaches out to get it for her, the bodies come to life! A bloody, gore filled battle ensues. During the chaos an undead minotaur comes charging into the fold, goring Konowa’s panther, Lamor.
