4713 August (continued)
Week 3 – Candlemere (continued)
We ascend the hill and are investigating the tower at the top of it. There is a foreboding sense that is very opresive.
There is something magical emanating on the whole hill top. There is a rubble pile in the center of the tower. Oewyn excavates a magic dagger (wickedly curved)
There is some writing in Aklo on one of the walls. We clear the wall and attempt to clear it. Parts have been worn away by the passage of time. Nisha gets terrified of something a word she reads and refuses to to say more. Wants us to leave.
Kaidan uses a potion and deciphers the word as “Yog-Shothoth”.
- 1 x Will-O-Doom
We take detailed notes of what we see in the tower.
The Candlemere Tower is now a research topic.
The other area of Interest of the island is the Ruined Town where the Ghost is.
We head down the hill to get out of the AURA. We rest a few hours to get rid of the sickened condition. Leanna researches what we know about ghosts.
We start searching the ruins hoping to find out more about the ghost.
- Building 3 -
- Oewyn finds some of a humanoid skeleton. Lays it out respectfully.
- He recovers the rest of that body.
- He doesn’t find anything more.
- Building 1
- Alexi finds the building was probably consumed by fire.
- Building 2
- Alexi finds a humanoid femur.
- He finds some more of the body. Most of a skeleton.
- He find the rest of that body.
- Building 4
- Nisha finds 15 gp
- Building 5
- Kaiden finds part of another body.
- He finds more of the body.
- He finds the rest of the body.
It’s sunset now (after hours of searching).
The Ghost shows up and moves to one of the structures.
He mentions “Margaret” and “Annie”. He’s trying to enter a place that he can’t (Building 3). He’s reacting like the building is on fire.
After a bit, he goes into his same ‘track’ as before.
- 1 x Ghost
Oewyn searches where the ghost appeared and found remains.
Leanna descends in the well and finds water and rubble. She investigates but doesn’t find much.
Oewyn climbs down the well and searches.
We search the buildings we hadn’t not finished searching.
Oewyn finds small remains at the bottom of the well.
Alexi finds 2 more bodies in his building.
Kaidan finds 2 bodies in building 4.
Total of 9 bodies. We theorize about which 3 are the ‘family’ of the ghost.
Leanna uses ‘Diagnose Disease’ for the bodies and they did die of disease.
Gilain found a graveyard on the outskirts.
We bury the bodies and say last rites (using some holy water). Oewyn. The sun is rising. We head to the western shore (tired) and wait for Duncan the Fisherman to pick us up. We’ll sleep on the way back.
We return to down and sell our loot.
PARTY SPLIT: 720 gp 9sp
Some of us contribute to diamond dust fund.
Deepdelve can provide a supply that refreshes on a monthly basis.
We provide Iola information about Candlemere (all the facts).
She thinks she can neutralize the tower effect by setting up a hallow with a alter.
She inquires about the 10 BP to build a town at Candlemere. It should be soon.
Alexi gives Evangeline the goop from the extra-planar will-o-wisp.
The party has free time and works on faction with people over the week.
Gilain works on Akiros and triggers a decision point with him and talks it over with Gilain.
Akiros pulls out a bow an arrow holy symbol from a pouch. He talks about where he came from. He used to be a Paladin of Erastil in Taldor. He fell in love with a girl who was in an abusive relationship with her husband that was a noble. Since it was mutual, he tried to get her to a place she would no longer be abused. The noble in question was able to recover the girl and the girl to dodge punishment claimed she was kidnapped. The noble took this to the Erastil Order. Akiros was brought up on charges by the order. The girl testified against him and Akiros was ruled against. Stripped of his title. He lost it, drew his weapon and killed the noble. During the time of confusion, he fled, evaded capture and became a refuge. He became more reckless and did not care of anything attitude since then.
He’s at a mental crossroad. Seeing folks like Kaidan and Oewyn do the things they do, remind him of the person he used to be. He’s deciding on what that means he should do going forward. Two-three general avenues – 1) seek absolution and atonement and find regain good standing within the faith. 2) consider that as the past and move forward on the path he is on now 3) technically wanted as a wanted criminal by the Temple of Erastil in Taldor and that he should leave. Gilain gets to decide. Gilain says to seek the atonement.
