Ruling a Fairy Tale Kingdom

Session 53

[h1] 4714 May (continued)[/h1]

[h2] Week 1 – Kingdom Week (continued)[/h2]


We pressed on into winter.


There is a frozen river before us.


  • 4 x Warg
  • 4 x Buchawn
  • 1 x Horned Female Figure -
  • 1 x Rider – ???? – Riding a Goat Mount

“The Emmissary approaches to witness the sacrifice. Hold them off”

“Raewind, kill this one. Prove yourself to me.”

“Coming father.”

We killed the Rider and knocked Raewind unconscious. Oewyscn died during this fight. Leanna tried to move Thorn into his scabbard, but it becomes a dagger and for now Leanna is the Arbiter. Inside the cave Mevenwy and Nisha find the foal “Efyllia”. They rescue her.

Jeweled Adamantine Dagger with Red Gems and a Mallet near by.

We loot the Buchawns and the Rider then load up the Oewyn and Raewynd.

We head forward we transition to Spring Dawn.


We find Cyollis and give Raewind to her.

He gives us a carved stick (magic rod) from Raewind in recompense.

We track to the portal and traverse through it with Leanna’s help.

And we are back in the Prime Material Plane.

We backtrack to recover the loot from the Buchawns then head to the Autum Grove. Since we have a new Arbiter, we wait at the border for a bit and then see Queen Syntira.

She would be willing to reincarnate him if we gathered the materials. We thank her and head back to Priomdahl with his body.

[h2] Week 2 continued[/h2]

We speak with a Cleric who uses Speak with Dead. We elect to Reincarnate Oewyn.

Nisha seeks out Oewyn’s daughter especially to let her know what happens.

Oewyn is reincarnated….as a human.

We identify the items and selll the loot.

The party split is 603 gp and 7 sp.

Second split is 571 gp and 4 sp.

Session 52

[h1] 4714 May (continued)[/h1]

[h2] Week 1 – Kingdom Week (continued)[/h2]

We take about a minute to catch our breath and then we are off.

  • Rules
  • Some obstacles are group obstacles – one person passes results in all passing it
  • Each turn takes a minute
  • Each action other than working on it results in -1 to a check. You can still do a check up to -5.
  • Leanna can fly past most obstacles but only to catch up to someone. Fly check.
  • 1 Full round actions is considered 2 standard (-2 to check)


  • Finding the trail – (Perception or Survival) – group – succeeded
  • Underbrush and thick brambles (CMB or Escape Artist) – succeeded
  • Boggy Stream – (Swim or Acrobatics) – succeeded
  • Entangling Foliage – (Reflex or Strength Checks) – succeeded
  • Dense Brambles ahead (Surival or KN: Nature) – group – succeeded
  • Combat – 2 Wargs and 1 Bachans and Korred (Small Disheveled Woman (stunted and very hair)) versus Stasja and Oksana
  • Rugged Dell – (Climb or Con check) -
  • No Obstacle Woods -
  • Combat – 2 Warg and 2 Bachans

The sun is setting we enter the last area. There are a pair of twisted oak trees. Starlight field between them – like a portal. A planar gate.


  • 1 x Satyr Creature

She cast Confusion on the group and then turned invisible and entered the portal.

As the fight ended, the portal closed.

Markeesh is able to figure out some things. It will duplicate plain shift when active. It plane shifts to the First World – not sure which realm. It would typically be activated by some sort of talisman (or force it with UMD). It can also be bypassed by magic – plant or wood magic (entangle, etc). They portal can be opened under moon light.

The First World is fluid (think of realms as floating islands). A realm is powered by an individual.

After some effort, Leanna (with Stasja’s help) is able to activate the portal. Seems it only stayed open for a few seconds and Leanna had to try again to get the rest of us through.

On the other side of the portal, Oewyn enters a similar clearing, but instead of oak trees making the arch, there are two stone menhirs. It is dawn here.

with Cyollis (Faun)[/h3]

As Oewyn, starts to get ready to start tracking he hears pan flute (greeting tune). He enters into a musical dialogue with the pan flute player. Asking after a unicorn foal.

Kaiden asks Mevenwy what her child’s name is. She replies “Efyllia”

After a bit of time, a faun comes out of the woods. His name is “Cyollis”.

We enter into a performance describing why we are here. He has an additional request of the group – someone he knows has fallen under they sway of the Huntsmaster. He would like her returned to him alive.

Cyollis lets us know the realm is known as “Realm of the Seasons”. There are 4 areas in this realm. You can consciously shift yourself from one area to another while focusing on the area while traveling. It is harder to go against time.

  • Spring Dawn
  • Summer Noon
  • Autumn Dusk
  • Winter Midnight

The Hunt was heading for Summer.

If we are following a trail and it dead ends, then we should try to get to the next season.

This Wild Hunt that we are pursuing’s leader name is Harakund. He is a Partitioner. He is cruel and violent. Most of his kind don’t care for Harakund. He’s doing it to gain the favor of the Queen.

The Children are on our side. The Parent isn’t. It seems however that of recent times, the Queen’s interest has increased in us. He’s not sure what has caused this recent change.

He’s heard rumors that the Queen has been harvesting strange things from the land of mortals. They collects innocuous things.

Broken statues, pieces of ruined buildings, saplings from sacred groves, items of great craftsmanship, and unicorn horns. Could be binding items – tying her lands tighter to the mortal lands.

Oweyn begins to the track the hunt. As the path leaves the fruit grove, it vanishes. After about an hour, the trail vanishes and we have to push into Summer.

The groups makes it into summer and fields of giant flowers.


  • 1 x Flying Fae Bear

We talk him and convince him we mean no harm. He also grants us a small boon (3 x fae nectar).

Another half hour on the trail and it ends and we seek out Autumn.

The terrain is full of barbed briars and prickly under brush and the trail is lost to normal view. Those of us with with the dust of pursuit can continue to track. There are heavy areas and light areas.


  • 4 x Large Twig Jacks

Follow up with looting the wargs and buchans

Session 51

4714 March (continued)

Week 3/Week 4 (continued)

We finish collecting the loot and prepare to talk to the captured Druid (Bull guy). We discuss things we want to convey and then have Stasja heal him and talk to him.

While initially unfriendly, Stasja is fairly persuasive in discussion. He does not come around to our side of things. There is some merit in the views we shared. He is willing to agree to bring them up and discuss them with his circle. Advocate the view.

We heal him up and release him. He leaves.

Nisha and Kaiden sift through the wax tablet and almanacs.

Symbols on the banner can be correlated with the wax tablet. The ritual was tied to moon phases.

The principles could be applied back in the capital. But why would we want to turn our people into Beastmen?

We camp out and start heading back.

We return by the of week 4 of 4714 March

Week 2

We are going to head to the Autumn Grove (1514) asap. 2.5 days to get there. We use a wagon and bring the covered body of the unicorn.

We are guided to Syntira who is seated upon her thrown. His name was Baeyolen (unicorn).

She has asked us here as an intermediary to the others (unicorns).

The mother Mevenwy is here.

We hear faint crashing sounds in the underbrush to the north west.
We have a few rounds to prepare for whatever is on it’s way. Bursting into the clearing is a Unicorn foaming at the mouth…several arrows in it’s flanks. Baying of wolves in the distance.


  • 6 x Wargs and Bukkans Wolf Riders – small humanoid with swarthy skin – aggresive fey – but not as vicious as some others
  • 2 x Fae Wolves – Night Black Wolf with eery green eyes

Mevenwy says, “Where is she?” to her mate. The Hunt came across us. A satyr in the party cast a spell that kept them from teleporting away. They took his daughter across their goat mount. He fled back back to here.

Mevenwy is looking to go back right now.

Syntira throws a pouch to Oewyn. It’s Pursuit Dust. 3 uses – each use lasts 5 hours when rubbed into eyes.

Session 50

4714 March (continued)

Week 3/Week 4 (continued)

We heal up some of the poisons and get ready to move on to the east after getting another bearing on the keystone.

Strong Winds (-2 on ranged attacks) and Rain (-4 perception and ranged attacks)

After about an hour, we spot a yellow light from the ground stretching into the sky. It’s like a column of lightning.

Markeesh notes to Leanna that there is a druid ring near here. Briar Henge – Made by servants of Gozreh. Leanna shared that information with us.

Gozreh – God of storms/sky and wave/surf – nature god. Fickle deity. Brian Henge is surrounded by a wall around the ring. It’s magically grown briar’s. It’s a maze around it. The cultivation prevents woodland stride. The henge is open to the sky.

Our next sighting indicates that the keystone is possible at the henge.

Another hour sees us to the henge. The hedge is 12 feet tall. The hedge will do 1d6 points of damage.

It’s shadowy in the hedge, but the center is probably brightly illuminated.

Resist Energy Communal (Electricity) – 9 minutes – (20 pts) on each person
Dark Vision Communal – 1 hour
Blessing of Courage on some party members

There is an entrance 5ft wide and 8ft high.

We start to explore the hedge.

Oewyn (Alexi, Leanna) finds an area (A) with a warped wooden table with some chairs around it. In the same area is a tapestry/banner (complicated lunar calendar).

Nisha, Kaiden, and Stasja go another route and find a second area (B) that is a living area. Hammocks. Large sturdy chest. small sturdy chest.


  • Group A – Twig Men (x3)
  • Group B – Twig Men (x3)
  • Group C – Twig Men (x2)

Sylvan – “I myself, do not want any trouble Arbiter, with your permission I will depart.” “Agreed, I am called Lamplighter” (male voice – small sized)

Oewyn identifies them as Twig Jacks (fae and constructs)

Nisha finds area C – the stone henge at the center. In one of the stone gates is a spider web of electricity. In the center of the electric web is the keystone.

Menhirs are 12 ft tall and 3 ft wide. The dolmens are 10 ft tall and 15 wide.

The keystone weights 800 lbs.

Electricity is hitting the 4 menhirs and then the 4 druids.

Mikhail Petrovich – Druid Leader of the Green Faith – Preparing for the war against the Queen. Their ritual has been making the peasants able to ‘defend’ themselves. They are turning them into beast men.

They talk of a war to come. But it is wrong to force this change without asking the peasants.

Detente ends as Oewyn makes it clear they cannot continue without asking and since they will continue then we are enemies.


  • Druid x 3
  • Druid Leader x 1 – Mikhail Petrovich

When we killed one of the druids, the tendril of electrical energy going to one of the stones dissipates and the large electrical strike to the top, dims some.

Mikhail Petrovich turns into an earth elemental and leaves. “He’ll find another way.” When he leaves, the electrical tether snaps back and the main spark decreases again.

The fight winds down. The Bull Druid survived and his companion. We tied them both up and break down the stone wall around the dolman where the keystone is.

Leanna and Gilain are able to wrestle it out. It’s a big 800 lb rock. When it comes out, the lightning coming down dies off.

And Alexi no longer looks like a boar.

We then examine the area. (Area D) has some tarps over parts of it to keep the rain off. -

Area C where the dolmans are and we recover the gear from the druids.
(3 of them)

Area B – trees and two chests

Session 49

4714 March (continued)

Week 3/Week 4 (continued)

Follow Up

  • Blaze would likely not reach out of the house of Falbin
  • Detect Evil.
  • Why are they destroying the crops?
  • Mivon????

20% of the fields are left from the flame.

Alexi interogates the conscious one while Stasja

  • These 4 were charged by Mivon with dealing with northern border issues.
  • Kinda like Texas Rangers
  • Issues involving Lycanthopy tends to bring bounty hunters (which are a problem) so they wanted to destroy the resources that bounty hunters would use to carry out their activities.

We are not within borders of Mivon, but in an area of interest to them.

The leader of the group is the dead one.

Things escalate and Oewyn duels the second in command and Kaiden heals the fallen Mivon before he dies.

Kaiden writes a letter for them to take explaining what happened after getting input form the party. He makes a duplicate of it.

They are dispatched to head back with the letter.

The others f the party work to bury Hemzel and his wolf companion.

Stasja talks with Falbin and fills him in on what happened with Hemzel and the fey Ziflander.

Falbin provides 14 doses of Wolfsbane

Most sightings of the beast men are east of here. The logging camp of ‘Axe Fall’ is to the east of us.

We head out to get to Axe Fall, we’ll get there about nightfall. On the way, Oewyn detects a static cloud bank to the east.

We get to Axe Fall and there is a light drizzle and the cloud bank is over it.

As we enter the town square, we note that appears it’s abandoned. No lights.

The church is a shrine of Pharasma. We find some scraps of cloth that were burst out of.

We camp for the night in a inn on the main level. During the first watch, Alexi hears a noise on the roof. Kaiden steps outside to look up and is attacked by beast men. They are partially changed.


  • 10 x Beast Men

They were beast men from the shoulders up (arms and heads) and knees down. They did not revert to human form upon death. They did not detect as Evil.

We gather their bodies in the Inn and Leanna casts secure shelter for us to camp the rest of the night.

The next morning, Alexi wakes and has boar beast man features. He wants Leanna to help him.

It seems Break Enchantment is needed. Today, Leanna is not able to break it. We’ll need to find the source to see if that can fix him and Leanna can try again.

We lay out the bodies of the beast men in a sealed house and leave a note that we said we did the best we could for them until a Cleric of Pharasma could say the proper rites.

We mount up and head in the direction the Lore stone leads us. Of note, the winds are picking up strength.

We come to a river crossing with a make shift log bridge. Across the way is a line strung between two trees with a haunch of meat hung from hit.

On the log bridge, Oewyn finds a trap and Alexi attempts to disarm it.

As Alexi gets back on land, hounds break out from the underbrush.


  • 3 x Hounds
  • 3 x Hunters

A female hunter called out in Elven, “Die Monster” They fought to the death. They were elves.

Oewyn is able to recover 2 Wolf Hounds.

We recover loot from the bodies. We find a signet ring on the Elven girl.

Session 48

4714 March (continued)

Week 3/Week 4 (continued)

As the fire is put out from the Ice Storm, a half-elf and giant cat approaches the house.

She seems distraught and collapses over Heimzel for a moment and then collects herself. We explain what happened from here. Her and Hemzel’s relations with the fey had been friendly.

The empty ornate box and journal catch her attention. She says she knows what they took. An faceted piece of crystal about the size of our fist. We think the keystone should be a carved piece of stone. They don’t seem to be the same thing.

Hemzel would use this crystal at night almost like a scrying device. Almost like a nightly ritual.

Stasja tries to decipher the the journal (which is in code).

  • The crystal is a lore stone. There is mention of a keystone. The Lore Stones are like a compass – attuned to a specific thing. Maybe it’s attuned to a keystone, but maybe not. It’s implied to it’s attuned to the Key Stone.
  • A few days ago, some fey asked him for the lore stone, but he declined. It ended without conflict.
  • The Lore Stone is over sensitive to light. If they are exposed to light within a druid circle, they can be reset.

Quietly, Nisha talks with Gyre (the atome) finding out what Ziflander had directed and why. She doesn’t know what happened to create the Lumber Jack Unseelie (tortured) thing. The plan was to meet at a nearby druid circle. Gyre is a Fey Warden type – thought she was doing her part to protect the fey from attack (Ziflander said Hemzel was going to attack the fey).

We’ll have Stasja hold onto his posessions and we’ll bring his body with us. We bring the body of the wolf too (it’s his animal companion). We believe Ziflander is headed to a Druid Circle to the north.

We press on into the evening and over night continuing to look for the Druid Circle. We’ll be fatigued.

With the advent of false dawn, we approach the druid circle. It’s on an island in a small lake.

Dawn is in about a minute. We’ll need to move quick.


  • 2 x Snakes
  • 1 x Crocodile
  • 1 x Quickling – Zifilander
  • 3 x Spriggans
  • 1 x Lycan Bear with Silver Fur

“Too too late, filthy intruders. In a few seconds, your lore stone will be wiped. Humans are always failures….”

With about 30 seconds to day break, Leanna finds 3 magic item. (Brooch, Cloak, and something in pouch) on Ziflander

Any angry bear stomps out of the water (larger than normal legs, and glowing eyes, and silver furred).

Silver was not bypassing it’s resistance to damage and it was regenerating even while unconscious. Hmm. Dahlia was able to do something last time to stop the regeneration. Gilain suggests seeing if it can regen drowning. And it didn’t. It died. After 4 minutes more, it turns into a naked man.

We identify the Lore Stone. (At-Will – pulse intensify in the direction of the attuned object).

Leanna uses the Lore Stone and gets a ping to the South East.

Stasja mentions a nearby Gnome name Falbin who was a friend of Hemzel. We’ll take Hemzel’s remains to the Falkbin.

Falbin has been cultivating wolfsbane.
Hemzel and Falbin were sharing info of the beast men and were looking to have Hemzel patrol the area.

We then camp for the day. While resting, many (but Nisha and Oewyn do not) have unsettling dreams about teeth and claws.

After resting we head for the Gnome’s. Oewyn spots an inordinate amount of smoke at the Gnome’s homestead. We hustle up.

Part of one of the buildings and part of the field is on fire. There are several human’s scattered around the homestead. Stasja does not spot Falbin (or any other gnomes)


  • 4 x humans – paired two hander blades and a bow each

“Get them in the name of Mivon” Wielding Aldori dueling swords.

One is killed. 1 surrenders and 2 are healed at stabilized in negatives. Oeywn spots a gnome prone in the fenced garden area. Leanna goes over and finds a pulse and heals all of his subdual damage..

Follow Up

  • Blaze would likely not reach out of the house
  • Detect Evil.
  • Why are they destroying the crops?
  • Mivon????
Session 47

4713 November (continued)

Week 2/Week 3 (continued)

Aftermath from the Pallid Plague

Made the Stability and Loyalty checks in both Olegdahl and Priomdahl so only 1 point of Unrest accrued.

Week 3/Week 4 – Travel to Hex 1721 (Where Druid Hemzel is supposed to be)

Takes about 5 days to get there. There are rumors of beast men in the area.

We arrive and spend day 6 searching hex 1721. It will take 2 days as it’s hills.

A point of interest is found. We find spot smoke (chimney) leading us to a hut. We arrive close to sunset.

“Too late, too late for Hemzel. Gyre, get them” in a high pitched voice from behind the hut.

Combat ensues.


  • 1 x Quickling (departed quickly)
  • 2 x Rat Swarms (summoned)
  • 1 x Gyre (tiny, green skinned fey – Atome)
  • 1 x Dire Wolverine (summoned)
  • 1 x Axe Wielding man with grey skin and green glowing eyes (Unseelie)

“Ha ha, we killed, the leader, the one leading the attack on us” (para-phrased) speaker is traumatized

“Ziflander saw to that. (Killing Hemzel). He was going to lead an attack, so she attacked.”

Who was he organizing the attack with?

Inside, the hut is on fire.There is an evicesrated humanoid corpse that is on fire. There is a wolf corpse and next to it is the corpse of an Atome.

On the table, is an ornate box that stands empty and a stack of pages..

Session 46

4713 November (continued)

Week 2 (continued)

After the fracas in the street, we continue to help Evangaline.

Hours 1 and 2 (Kaiden: Diplomacy and Handle Animal)

We collect samples from the dead cultists and then Oewyn and Alexi take a wagon with the bodies to the graveyard. They burn the bodies while there.

The third hour we do not make progress on the cure.

The fourth hour, we are down Oewyn and Alexi are dealing with body disposal. (Kaiden: Linguistics)

We spend the fifth hour on the cure. (Kaiden: Survival)

We spend the sixth hour on the cure. (Kaiden: Perception)

It appears Evangaline has found a viable cure. We now need to gather the resources locally (Oweyn, Valkyrie and Leanna) go on that trip. Kaiden, Gilain, Alexi stay to protect Evangaline.

A combat ensues in each location.

Combat – Evanaline’s Alchemist Shop

  • 2 x Dire Apes – Sick and covered in sores and pustules
  • 1 x Rat/Cat

Combat – in the Streets

  • 3 x Wolves – Sick and covered in sores and pustules
  • 1 x Beggar

One of the wolves gets away, but the rest are killed in both fights.

Oewyn collects the bodies from the street and returns post haste with the supplies.

Evangeline is able to make 12 vials of anti-plague. She’s will continue to work on a long term solution.

After we stripped the bodies to anything worthwhile, we find an envelope addressed to Alexi on the body of the ‘Beggar’.

It’s an invitation to a party. Celebration or Gala. Drawn map in it. The location is the carnival ground from a few years ago. Right outside town. Signed with a symbol he doesn’t recognize.

Leanna recognizes the symbol of one of the Fae Queen in text references. Could refer to Isandrea as it’s not any of the other 4 known ones.

The gala is for midnight tonight and it’s 10pm now…it will take us an hour to get there.

We gear up (in our depleted state) and head out.

As we near the carnival location (where the Gala is), we hear the sounds of revelry.

Low melodic drowning throughout the area. Interrupted by random screams of pain and also by screams of pleasure.

Ahead is a clearing with three large trees. There is a long banquet table in an arc around the central tree. It appears the table and accessories are sculpted from bone. There are vases with bright orange fire blooms.

Carved out of the three itself is a fountain. Sculpture of a nude woman pouring water into a basin.


  • 10 x Cultists
  • 4 x Patrolmen stuffed with flowers
  • 1 x Lady

Alexi presents his invitation. The Lady says “On behalf of my lady, we can recruit more. Kill them all.” (severely paraphrased)

During the battle, the Dusk Queen’s champion showed up. Grandmother took his gear and banished it.

The Plague Queen showed from a tree (Treant ally). (Dryad with an animated tree). She was defeated.

Session 45

4713 November (continued)

Week 2 (continued)

What is our game plan? Get the loggers to stay while we seek our a cure in the hex or nearby hex by tracking the ‘cultists’

1 – Move the camp to a clean site
2 – Leanna treats each of the 6 loggers to help their disease while Oewyn does an initial scout
3 – We then head for the clearing to track the ‘cultists’ based on directions from the loggers

We get to an opening with a multitude of flower beds (Fire Blooms; common; decorative).

There are three robed figures. After a dialogue where the ‘druid’ does not want to answer the direct question “Do you serve the Young Queen Isandrea?” he turns into a diseased looking bear and combat ensues. The other turn into bears as well.


  • 3 x Diseased Druids
  • 1 x Animated Bear

They were human. We found some items on them. In the soil, there are diced up bodies and cloth bits. The loggers that died?

They each had a collar of stone on cord – exact match to Dahlia’s. Maybe these druids were co-opted by some force.

We find a campfire nearby. Oewyn search for tracks and finds some going to the south west. They are hooved.

Leanna takes blood samples from all three bodies and samples of the flowers.

The contaminated gear of the druids is stored in bags on Oweyn’s mount.

We then build a pyre with the bodies and the bear corpse and burn them.

We then follow the tracks to the south west. About an hour later, we come to a large grove clearing. There are two bodies (two woman) in the clearing and (one woman) near a tree. They appear to be dryads. Leanna believes they died to the plague.

We are then ambushed by some things.


  • 4 x Enemy’s – Horned Humanoids with Bows – Satyr’s

We are able to de-escalate the fight before anyone is killed and question the Satyrs. They are scared when the Young Queen Isandrea is mentioned.

They had thought the source of the death of the Dryads was the loggers and they exacted the attack on the loggers.

The Young Queen Isandrea is known as the Plague Queen.

The arbiter (Oewyn) says they owe a debt of for the erroneous attack on the loggers. How they expiate the debt is up to them.

They seem Queen Syntira may have more information.

We send a message with the Satyr to the Queen Syntira.

We then spend two days searching Hex 1117 (our current hex).

Each day we stop back with the loggers and care for them. But over that time, five of them are now catatonic. One is just prior to that stage.

At the end of the second day, Kaiden receives a sending from “Grandmother” (Cleric lieutenant of the Hag Queen):

In warning, the Queens champion is moving
the situation is unexpected and
I advice your return unless
you wish us to freely resolve.

Kaiden responded:
The Pallid Plague has resurfaced.
Seeking Isandrea to resolve.
Plese resolve Champion with
minimum impact.

The next morning, the party starts to see some early onset of the plague. We realize that the logging camp is missing some wagons. We see what directions the wagon tracks went.

Something was loaded or unloaded about an hour away and then the tracks continue. Oewyn circles the area looking for things of interest. There are several oversize bear tracks in the area and a scattering of flower petals.

We continue to follow the wagon tracks in an easterly direction.

On the outskirts of Olegdahl, we run into a patrol. Olegdahl has been affected by plague. They sent a message to Priomdahl.

They have started to quarantine those affected. We have them arrange for the loggers to be brought to those quarantined. We ask a second message to be sent with details about the cultists, wagon, fire bloom flowers, and info we have about the plague so far.

We enter Olegdahl to track the cultists to capture one and gain information about where Queen Isandria.

The ‘cultists’ are spotted and we move to intercept them in town.


  • 3 x Diseased Druids

We take one alive and interrogate him.

The Blight Druid and their patron is a Young Queen.

We get some information from him, but not where the other wagon was headed. We think it’s Priomdahl, but not sure.

Kaiden passes the sentence of death and kills him humanely. Oewyn notices a tatoo of the back on his neck. Leanna believes it is more outsider related than religion. The mark is Daemontic (not demonic). “Court of Pestilence” venerate/worship the Horseman of Pestilence

We restock up and head at a brisk pace to Priomdahl. (2 days away)

We get to the outside of Priomdahl and sent Nisha into the town. She seeks out Dahlia, then seeks out Kabran, then Jhod, and the Evangaline (the Alchemist).

Evangeline is hired to help produce a cure from the samples we took and Nisha’s blood.

Her initial diagnosis will take an hour. We have the guard pass the information that we are back in town and working on a cure while martial law is enacted.

She can make a check every hour of work.

We get through 2 hours and then 4 Cultists Alchemist (Bombers) attack the Alchemy shop.


  • 4 x Cultists Alchemist (Bombers)

We captured one alive (he’s sleeping). Alexi secures him.

We recover 12 x Alchemist Fire
4 x +1 Chain Shirt

Do they have the Daemon tattoo? Yes. Do they look sick? Yes
