Who are your friends? Adhara just showed up, and Vodos is an ambassador from Tritonia for aid against Zeiram.

Session 89: To Butt Chug, Or Not To Butt Chug?
You watched a fat video game guy review a porn game and expected high art?

Tharious comes back 66 golds heavier, 2 gold lighter.

Interrogations with Lord Hayao, talk of re-negotiation.

Emon heads up to fetch abuella, but alas, there are assassins.

They fight, but it proves, to be an easy fight. They take the assassin Bryan.

After interrogations they learn that Bryan is part of the Arcane Wayfarers, and they aren’t necessarily assassins by trade, and Bryan was led to believe the lords were bad guys. They put him in the cell and leave Shra to guard him.

Above, Aashir and Aeneas and ambush Torinn. They give information about Aelethious, Atbluff. And Aashir delivers the information about the barrows.

Session 88: Taking care of business
And working overtime (and polymorph-kidnapping noble lords)

They get a message that one of the lords, Aashir, wants to speak to them.

Also there’s some bad business going on at the docks that the lords expect them to take care of.

Also the lord of House Roku, a smaller upstart house, might be staging a coup?

They head for the docks.

There they find some obvious shakedowns going on. But when they try to stop it, the bandits are confused. “We’re just… doing… what you asked?” They are Edwin and Igers, and also appear to have a book with both accounts/ledgers, and physical descriptions and drawings of the new lords (Torinn, Toro, Emon, and Tharious)

They ask to be escorted to the head of operations, and meet Hughes. A rough dwarf with a scar and cataract. He passes along quite a large amount of gold, around 5000 between the “held” gold, and a personal gift from the “night market”. Hughes intimates that since they’re the new lords, they’ll be expected to “play along”. He agrees to give up the pier they took in for themselves.

That’s when Emon intimidates him to say that things are going to change. He expects things to be… “cleaner”. “I’ll pass it along” Hughes says.

They then go to see Lord Hayao. Lord of House Roku. He’s one of the “vassals” to former house Xaio, and part of the acquisition of house boom-crash.

Eventually they decide he’s full of crap, and “arrest” him. Now, they’re sort of within their right to arrest him right now. But also they’ve got to consider what it would look like. So they arrest him, but “discreetly”. By turning him into a sloth and taking him back to their keep.

Which they do, and that’s fine. But just as they’re about to start asking him questions. Assassins come in. Oh boy.

Until next time…

Session 87: Back in Lere
The boys are back in town.

Ulgrim’s haunting visions, wakes up with axe in hand.

Adhara gets a care package and mission. Stay with these people. See what they do. Help them.

Tharious just get stuff.

Torinn’s second vision:
We didn’t think it was significant sir. It’s a trinket, a toy! Why… How could it be important?
You…. IDIOT!!!!!!! You!
He points firmly and accusatorily at Dryjhna
Did you know about this!?
Dryjhna shrugs
Gods-dammit, why do I even bother trying with you.
Could you be ANY more useless you mute, dull-minded PARASITE!

Then they’re attacked by flying ships. which Dryjhna takes care of.

They wake up. Tharious prays on what to do about the kobolds and gets both a vision of the retribution of Pelor as well as the mercy, and is left with no answers. He goes for mercy, and leaves the kobolds in the service of the priests, who themselves having been recently slaughtered by the kobolds are less happy about the arrangement then the kobolds. They leave Qax in charge.

Aela is sort of left in charge having been closest to the head priest before death, but she was temporarily usurped by nieles as Toro had previously decided that neiles martial prowess earned him top spot. That changes and in the morning Aela is back in charge.

The goliaths finished work on the thing and it looks a weird temple with people that looked like the images in the cultists’ temple. The dead body had said “Kalashtar”.

Anyway, they loot the brazier

Torinn 2000
Ulgrim Ring of the Ram, snugglingus Rope of Entanglement, caress
Emon Dagger of Teleport Scroll of Circle of Death
tharious 5495 gold 40 candles (from the temple)

And head back home. Passing Barumila they return the manual to Thum, and stop by Hack and Smash. They get a sneak peak of a sort of crab tank in the back, and Adhara gets some hammer armor.Some other stuff happens.

We get back to town, introduce Vodos and… that’s about it. Conversations happen, Vodos makes his intentions clear. Vodos agrees to help them with their overworld threat in exchange for getting the conch back.

Intermission: Battle Royale

Tyler, the Aasimar Paladin
Jarrett, the Dragonborn Druid
And Logan, the Life Cleric

Face off in a FFA battle royale. It’s long, it’s complicated and difficult, and in the end it was actually pretty close.

Alas, the cleric managed to die last.

Session 86: Javier Bardem - Meet Jet

Take control of Firestorm Kobolds. Take control of money brazier. Rescue priests. It’s Tharious! He’s 4x exhausted, and has been tortured. Head back to temple

Priests sleep for like 18 hours. When they wake up, Aela lets Nieles know he’s in charge of Temple because he used to be athletic in his old life. He accepts.

Do Javier Bardem. Weird ritual, tunnel of light in “space”, sounds of thousands of crashing windows (or mirrors?) Arrive in Jet’s “domain”. Impress her with ritual. She keeps Toro and the sarcophagus. Happy ending.

One the way back, the high elf “Vosk” somehow interrupts their teleportation. He seems as confused as they are. Torinn falls unconscious. Bird goes crazy. Arrive back in temple.

Session 85: Xul'Bhor

Grapple the taunting kobolds outside and find out about the back exit tunnel that leads to Xul’Bhor’s lair.

Head down asap, no plan. Grind session to halt for 10 minutes to complain about “unwinnable” fight after single round of combat. Win fight against monster specifically designed for Toro to beat. Toro complains loudest about unwinnable fight. Several members never take damage. Make up reasons why we won rather than accepting it was always a winnable fight. Demand 3 levels for winning winnable fight… for some reason. Squeaky wheel wins. DM gives in/up.

Session 84: The Temple of Jet

Explore the temple, pray a bit. Find the library, raid the tomb, carve up a wall, get attacked by tentacles, some kobolds taunt us outside.

Session 83: Blizzard, Fangs, and Temples

There’s a blizzard, it’s pretty shitty. Torinn spots a cave some distance away, and Ulgrim navigates down a slope to bring their caravan to safety, but when there’s a more treacherous drop, Toro is able to anchor himself to let the others climb down. In the last stretch, Shra uses his flaming sphere to carve out a path.

Inside the cave, though, they’re attacked by 3 remorhazes. It’s pretty tough. One of the goliaths actually dies, and Shra is nearly killed. However, he still bravely swaps himself out for Xanthor who’s super about to die.

They make it to the temple afterward to find it raided and empty.

One-Shot 4: Return to Caer Wynn
Sadder blub

We awaken in the pool surrounded by the sleeping aboleths, greet a door, get around it. But when we attempt to see what’s inside some aboleths try to stop us. There’s a fight, we lose, and are dominated. You’d think more would happen, but that’s really just about it.

Oh, I mean also it was technically revealed that for some reason a cadre of aboleths guarded the sarcophagus 4000 years ago and ordered it to be taken to Xxiphu, their temple. That might be important. Sadly no one knows that.
