Session 6: A New Mission (27 Trest 784 to 26 Huenti 784)
The group makes it
back to Alesund with the chosen in tow. They tell Damon and
Taval everything that happened. Damon takes the chosen and
locks him away until they have spoken with Roflander. Taval
flies to Dramman to speak with Roflander. The groups rests for
two days. Taval returns with word and with a dwarf named
Brack. Enzo recognizes Brack, who says his guild has sent him
here to look into the cults. The group excepts his aid.
Taval says that Roflander has asked that the chosen be brought to
him for more questioning. The group debates it and then
agrees. K'Shen and Marhand berate Taval. The next
morning, as they set off, Taval is gone. The group begins its
ascent to Dramman, awaiting the Roc to come and help them get there.
Two days on the road
to the town, the group is camped for the night when Marhand, on
watch, hears a battle cry. He awakens the others and charges
out. Barbarians, over ten feet tall charge the group.
The group gets to its feet in time as Marhand delays the arrive of
the group from the north and Brack puts illusions in the way of the
others before killing several with lightning. Enzo guards the
chosen. Markel joins Marhand. K'Shen showers
them with shards of crystal. Marhand nearly kills one, cutting
of his leg. A mist descends on the barbarians, shielding them.
Brack burns away the mist around the southern group and kills more.
Hipolet kills ones with arrows. The other group moves into the
midst of everyone. Chase hears two sneaking near the chosen.
Enzo burns them as Hipolet and Chase drive them off. Brack
summons elementals to dismiss the mist and them using lighting to
dispatch many others. Enzo, as a troll, kills another.
Three flee. They take three prisoners. They interrogate
them and learn that they have a rune to use to take the chosen and
them back to home.
The next morning, the
Roc arrives and carries the prisoners to Roflander. The group
makes it there soon after. They stay at the inn and meet with
Roflander, telling him what has happened. He thinks on the
Marhand goes to Arouf
and gives him an axe from the barbarians that is magical.
Arouf has the group over for dinner. For two weeks, the group
Roflander calls them
to meet with him. He says that his clerics think it would be
unwise for them all to go north using the rune to look for Lorjek.
However, Enzo could go alone, easily disguised, and find out lots of
information. Enzo and the group agree. Roflander goes on
to ask the group is they can help him in another way. He has
heard word that there are forces massing against him in the kingdom.
He needs to go out and speak his cause to the other Jarls, but he
cannot travel freely without endangering his home. He plans to
go disguised as a dwarf, but he needs other smaller creatures to
travel with him as guards. The group agrees to aid him.
Session 7: Roped Into Diplomacy (26 Huenti 784 to 23 Kiusta 784)
Before they leave
Dramman, the group is informed that Damon is sending a barbarian
with them to help. After hearing that news, Markel tells the
group that he thinks it would be a good idea to inform Garanuf and
the dwarves what they have discovered so far. He will go and
do that while the others travel with Roflander. The barbarian,
named Hardrada arrives. They give him a brief description of
what is happened. They talk for the rest of the day. The
next day, a dwarf, Roflander in disguise, arrives at the inn.
They discus a strategy and decide to head towards the town of
Enturmur and the Jarl of the Walls, who Roflander thinks is one of
the more likely Jarls to listen. On the way, they will
convince, without revealing themselves, any town the find.
They leave Dramman.
For the first week,
the group makes excellent time following Hipolet's lead. They
encounter a band of ghouls which they destroy. Later, they
find a town and Roflander is able to convince the elders to support
his side (without revealing who he is) when the times comes.
It begins to rain, and continues for day. The weather throws

progress. Finally, the rain subsides and they move steadily

of boulders which the giants do not cross, but is an easy path for
the shorter races. He leads the group across. After
several miles, Brack is attacked and nearly killed. The group
finds itself in the midst of Ropers. They scramble and barely
make it out of the field alive. They find a secure place to
camp for the night. Before they leave in the morning, an icy
spirit elemental attacks them. Brack unleashes a dozen spells
and the others chip away at it before it is finally destroyed.
