998 AC, Summer 14
The party awoke before dawn to prepare for the funeral pyre of Enzo Cartwright in the Pelor-Zone of the Tavern of the Sun & Moon. While there, they meet Freyr Eveningstar, the eladrin co-owner of the park. Freyr is honest & informative, preparing the party for the challenges they may face in convincing the Parliament to take action against the “alleged” Cappadocian undead awakening. Freyr assured the party that, due to constant doom & gloom warning from his slightly prophetic mother about his own death while surrounded by undead, he has prepared the park in several ways to be defended against undead attack.
The party was briefly way-layed by Orchid Malfeather, a former classmate (and not-at-all friend) of Kyone’s who was like every mean girl stereotype stuck into Scarlet O’Hara. Orchid’s father is also the head of the Coventry Parliament of Lords, so her feelings of disbelief about the truth of the “alleged business with the undead” and her offense taken at the suggestion that perhaps her great-grand-daddy, a high cleric of Corellon who had been there at Cappodocia’s fall, had somehow not done his job made the party less than hopeful about their chances of easily persuading the parliament to take action.
On the way south (towards the Cannery Coast) the party came across a stream where they met a fey water spirit who had been tasked with watching what passed by her waters and reporting it to Lord Malfeather. While the non-present PCs took Jimmy & the carts around to a shallower area to cross, the remaining PCs crossed the stream on stepping stones and were met on the other side by two old “friends”… Mr. Krup & Mr. Vandamaar (from episode 5), who were tracking Nulath with one of Coventry’s Hunters, a psionically enhanced shade. The Hunter said “The one you seek is not in Coventry, but that he is in the minds of several of these” (indicating the PCS). After some pleasantries (?), the two were curious if this undead invasion might eliminate the people of Coventry, leaving the land open for their minotaur nations to come in and take over with less of a fight. The party couldn’t give an accurate assessment of the undead’s strength, not that they particularly wanted to, so Krup & Vandamaar commanded the minotaur soldiers with them to try to kill the party, so they could better assess the abilities of a group that defeated some of these undead. After the party defeated the minotaurs, Krup & Vandamaar told them they could loot the bodies for whatever they wanted. They then made a portal to the Abyss, where it appeared they had a minotaur army being trained by demons.
The carts came by after the fight, and the party continued south, making camp along the way.
Experience & Treasure
The party received 500 XP for the session, so everyone should be at 7,500 XP, and should be at level 6 for the start of next game.
In total, the minotaur bodies had 1000 GP on them, bringing the current party total to 5,000 GP. They also found:
- +2 Cloth Armor of Resistance (psychic) [lvl 7] – Kyone
- Helm of Stubbornness [lvl 4] – Nikolai
Next game will be Sunday, March 24, 2013.
In-game, it will be the morning of Summer 15, 998 AC, the morning that the party wakes up.
