The Aia Chronicles

The Witch of the Wild
Crazy Werewolves & How to Cure Them

<meta />

While the party sleeps Robert Pattinson talks with Orsik. Orsik expresses his regret about Aiden’s fall and the death of his crew. Orsik also reveals that he is just a super great guy like a paladin type guy. Orsik talks about leadership and how over the 300 years that he has had 175 adventurer's guild members die and he feels bad about it.

Grog awoke and Told the party of his Vision!

“You dream of lightning and a wild ocean, and your small craft rocks and wavers in the might of the storm. You look up and see a dark grey sky swirling above you with lightning breaking the darkness to reveal the desolate and violent seascape around you. A bolt of lightning strikes from the sky to destroy your raft, and you hear the booming voice of Kord crack across the ocean as you fight drowning, "GROG!"
The ocean around you swirls and forms a mighty whirlpool that drags you under the water and towards the darkness below. The pressure grows, and the water fills your lungs, yet you do not die. "Do not be afraid… these are things that you must see," the voice booms in your head. Lights appear in the distance, and the edifices of an underwater city comes into focus. Serpentine humanoids swim amongst the buildings, and the voice resumes, "The ancient Naga stronghold of Odhelhi. Here used to lie one of the grandest temples to my love, Melora until Zehir the Trickster attacked and destroyed it for the Sahaguin Priestess, Rikshaza. Queen Jyana recovered what she could, but one of my storm bolts remains trapped in the ruins." You move swiftly past the underwater metropolis and see on the ocean horizon a great ruin covered in aquatic fauna and guarded by sharks and other strange beasts. "My wish for you, Grog Stormsorc, is to obtain this rod so that all you meet shall know that you are one of my favored." Your ethereal body passes through the stones of the ruins and you see the Storm Rod wedged between the stone in a darkened room of collapsed rocks. "I have foreseen that this Orsik Holyhammer will prove valuable to this quest… I feel that the 'benefits' of his curse may prove useful, but my vision of the future is limited. Keep him alive if you can; he still has a part to play in this tale…" The voice fades leaving you alone in the dark, but as you scan the room, a gaping maw of teeth rushes towards you, swallowing you whole.”

The party discussed for a long time and decided to take Orsik back to town and jail him. Grog promised to watch over him and take responsibility for his actions. Grog planned to rope oskarson in on it to help to.

Regardless as they were talking they were attacked by bandits! The party slaughtered the bandits.

The last bandit was disintegrated by a random witch who appeared out of nowhere in a magical flying cabin. The witch Serene who offered to cure Orsik if the party would bring her:

  • The blood of Athalas (at a temple in the underdark near the Drow city of Karaza bring two vials (500 gp for extra vial))
  • Waterlillies of Melora In the temple near Odhalhi the Naga city. She gives the party some super potent Gillyweed.

Serene told them some miscellaneous information about the Muffin of Peace!

For those going to the underdark they need to go to the drow village of Sereni.

-Grandma Nim has a quest hook in Sereni

Look for a street urchin named korax he can sneak you inside the underdark

There is a mad countess who is currently in control of the underdark.
For those going underwater the best bet is to talk with Captain Jones

Raiding the Gnoll Hole #2
Who captured Orsik?

 

<meta />

Session 4: Raiding the Gnoll Hole Part 2

THUNDERWAVE!!! Grog cast thunderwave which was pretty cool. The rest of the party rushed in and they mopped up the wolves pretty quickly. They got flanked by some more gnolls

They found a bunch of booty!

They went through the boss door and walked down a long hallway.

Trap! But Nydry managed to disarm it no problem.

Unfortunately the slick slope slide sullied their style.

The party landed in a secret grove, in the distance they saw a humanoid figure and a group of wolves.

They party fought the wolves and a dark werewolf caster who used a moon shaped amulet to summon both a death dog and a displacer beast.

The werewolf said something about Athalas, a mythical dark queen of Jorvasker who made a pact with an elder god to create a race of eldritch lycanthropes. Also there was a vision of a four armed (six limbs total) werewolf monster in it’s mind.

The party shattered the werewolves amulet and killed him. His summons however proved more difficult downing most of the party. Finally with only Cam and Grandma Nim standing, they survived.

-———————————————-

LEVEL UP!!!

-———————————————-

They found Orsik, though he has been infected with lycanthropy.

While Orsik raged fighting between the werewolf and dwarven sides, Marlin had a telepathic conversation with the dwarven side.

Apparently he sent Aiden and some other veterans into the Underdark to recover an artifact of Athalas. He presumed Aiden to be dead with the rest of the team until he and Oskarsson were attacked a few nights ago.

The only way to heal Orsik is to go to the Witch of the Wilds, Serene.

Raiding the Gnoll Hole #1
Into the Wild!

<meta />

The party tries to sleep but this is a dangerous wilderness. They get immediately attacked by a saber toothed tiger.

The party killed the tiger

The party skinned the tiger and took it’s teeth. Adding this all together that adds to three wolf belts one winter wolf pelt and one saber tooth tiger pelt. We also took some wolf teeth.

In the morning they packed up to head deeper into the wilderness.

They met a moss farmer heading into town and sold the bodies sans pelt to the farmer for 2 silver and some moss farming tips

They traveled and saw a frost giant fighting a six legged lizard beast.

They traveled further and set up a camp this time with a bunch of fire.

 

A dragon approached! Luckily it was a gold dragon. Thoryax on a quest to kill a white dragon. They had quite a genial conversation. A Paladin maybe of Bahamut.

Thoriax had a good conversation and blessed their campsite.

 

The reach the campsite where orsik was attacked. They investigated the campsite and found some rations, a silver dagger, and a normal dagger..

 

They followed the tracks until they found a cave guarded by gnolls. They chatted about strategy for a long time. Like a really long time. Eventually no decision was reached…so Grog charged!!

 

One gnoll shot at the from above but they said fuck that and ran inside where they were safe from the archer.

 

Inside they started running and gunning down gnolls like a group of mother fucking undertakers. They ran into a gnoll they killed it. They ran into a room with a statue, the knocked over the statue (there was some sort of stone wolf claw key thing which Grog tried to destroy but Cam picked up)

 

They ran down the other hall found some more gnolls. Killed them. There was a small hold in the wall which Mizuki and Grandma Nim climbed through, they found it lead to other rooms but since there were gnolls there and only the small players could fit through they just came back.

 

There was a spiked bit which the players crossed with care except for Xarfas who attempted to leap across with his monk-ish agility and nearly fell! They used the stone wolf claw to open a large door made of three stone rings and heard a mysterious voice say “Welcome Cam” (Cam actually opened the door)


They ran in and went to the right were a group of wolves and a gnoll were ready to ambush them although not particularly stealthy. The party instead got the drop on the group and rolled initiative…. TO BE CONTINUED!

Making Peace & a Dying Stranger
Who needs rest anyway?

<meta />

A ghost, Jolly Roger, appeared from Buccaneer Bay! He told party the Captain Jones the King of Buccaneer Bay has a message for them.

 

“To those who killed Liana Stormwind. I am Captain Jones of Buccaneer Bay. I come bearing no ill will. You beat Liana in fair combat such is our way. However I believe that you have come into possession of the deed to the Lightning Trident which I would very much like to have. If you accept the deal and give me the deed you will receive the discounts on many dockside shops and the friendship of the Bay. If not you will earn my and the Bay’s enmity, be hunted down, and killed.”

 

Buccaneer Bay is a powerful pirate faction. Rules by Captain Jones, a mysterious, supposedly immortal demigod that controls all of the oceans on this side of the world.

 

The party accepted and gave up the deed.

 

To get discounts on Buccaneer Bay affiliated merchants utter the veiled threat: “All men must die” while flashing the Bay’s sigil.

 

Jolly is Captain Jones’s dead son bound to this plane as a ghost messenger.

 

Other ghost messengers: Clark, SE-Rah (Cirra?)

 

As night fell A giant spider burst into the bar! With a wounded adventure on his back. Oskarsson and his companion Hchcka.

 

“Orsik, Orsik.. Orsik has been captured!”

 

Grog and a barmaid Lisa wet across town in the forming blizzard to fetch Dr. Holly

 

[The Bard] attempted to cure Oskarsson but her magic did not work as the wound is maintained by some sort of dark magicks!

 

Marlin & [the Bard] talked with Oskarsson, in his delirium he was unable to tell them anything about who captured Orsik other than it was dark, and it was an ambush.

 

Dr. Holly informed the party that Oskarsson was bitten by a death dog. A terrible two-headed dog beast.

 

Ziric’s Samsnephew swears he saw a giant death dog being controlled by a halfling about 40 years ago.

 

An hour later Oskarsson woke up and vomited. He marked the point on the map where the ambush was just north of the Crossroads, and they took Orsik NE after the ambush. He also marked where the Adventurer’s Keep was.

 

Grog borrowed Oskarsson’s Silvered Greatsword, Ragnos, promising to return it.

 

Go to the Bronze Anvil and tell him that Gura is calling in a favour and get some body heaters.

 

ITEMS ACQUIRED: SIlvered Greatsword, a week's worth of food for 7 people, Body heaters


The party set outs into the stormy night and gets attacked by a winter wolf  on the road! They emerged victorious and made some cool wolfskin cloaks!

Aggressive Negotiations
Well.... That escalated quickly

Session 2

Grandma Nim went to the Fireside Biscuit (Propriety Meghar)

QUEST ACCEPTED: Retrieve molten lava from the volcano at the center of the island to learn how to make the legendary lava cake!

 

A new party member appears!

A strange sweaty half-elf wanted to gamble with someone. Picking out Mizuki as a young naive mark she offered to play a card game if she won she would join the party if she lost she would give mizuki her scarf. She won the game! And gifted Mizuki the scarf regardless. She introduced herself as…. Robert Pattinson…oh!

 

Captain Liana Attacks

Captain Liana came in and wanted to attack Marlin to reclaim her stolen objects. Marlin talked his way out of it however Liana blamed the sleezy salesman Mardoc instead who had sworn on his mothers life that Marlin stole the goods and sold them to Mardoc (which was true). Liana wanted to execute Mardoc’s mother in repayment for the debt.

 

Marlin was talking Liana died but there was miscommunication within the party. Thinking that the talking was not working and not knowing that Marlin had Charm Person prepared Grog signaled the attack. A large battle ensued. Eventually almost everyone in the party was unconscious but Mizuki landed the final blow on the last pirate. Liana and her whole crew were slain. Unfortunately Mardoc was slain in the battle.
