The disguised Fina – our ship – is moored in a cove approximately 20km from the city of Ederin. We are here because we need to deliver the “sweaters” (gnome armor) to our gnomish contact in Ederin. Unfortunately the port at Ederin is heavily guarded by Arbuckle and his minions. There they go trying to control everything again. We want to collect for our cargo so we decide to take the overland route from across the island to the city. There is not much left of the town where we are moored. It is likely empty since the titan war. All we see is neglect and decay. We sleep aboard the ship and proceed to Ederin the following morning. We carry sweater samples with us.
The town is eerily quiet, no birds, no animals,…other than a big creature flying around the smoke that arises from the direction of Ederin, there is nothing around. That’s a lot of smoke! Perhaps Ederin is on fire! We start walking through the town. While passing by an old house, wouldn’t there just be two monster skulking by a window. Oona and I cast protective spells. Masa and Kanye stealthily walk forward. I scrabble up the hill Kanye is on. Masa tries for a sneak attack on the closest monster but the dead guy sees him and charges. While its distracted, Oona attacks and hits with her Lucerne hammer and then starts an inspirational song. Both monsters are clumsy and miss. I cast disrupt undead. Kanye and Masa get in the mix with success. Quinn channels bad zombie energy for 5 more damage. Kanye misses. Oona brings her milkshake and does tremendous damage. Number 2 dies…again. Zombie 1 tries to slam Masa again for 4 damage. . Masa kills him back, again. Ha! Someone steals the nice silver but tarnished chains around their necks and then we carry on. Soon after, those of us with amazing perception spot two big creatures flying in the haze of smoke. We get to the edge of of our little town and notice that a large flying creature is now about 5 km away. It might be a wyvern. 2km away it dives into the trees. Crazily, we go check it out. It lifts off with a load of humans and then drops its human cargo from far above. That’s got to hurt! The flying beasty spots us, changes directions, and comes at us quickly. Oona gives us shields of faith (+2 AC). She stands by a horse summoned by Quinn as bait and braces the milk churner. Kanye puts giant wasp poison on his rapier. Oona inspires courage. The flying monster wyverny thingy is very unusual looking, blue with black patterns…tatoos? markings? Its face is different…enhanced to look more evil. Yikes! Oona and I are afraid and start to run away. The others are braver and make a stand. The evil thing starts to dive towards the horse. Poor horse is grabbed and thrown by the nasty things stinking maw of the thing. Kanye holds until its closer, Masa misses, Quinn holds until its closer and then does a sound blast near black and blue. BnB keeps approaching. Oona and I keep running towards the trees. I finally come to my senses, turn around and return cautiously trying to keep hidden. Masa holds and waits to fight defensively. Kanye jumps masterfully into the air with his poison dagger stretched out front, swings and misses the evil one going up and coming down…so close. Quinn misses with a spell.
Oona misses. Kanye successfully jumps up and pokes the evil one in the bum. +13 damage. I launch my hand of apprentice. Quinn summons a small wind elemental. Evil one attacks Oona when she isn’t looking. Ouch. Masa misses. Kanye gets wacked by its tail. It flies by. It turns around midair and comes back. Masa taunts the evil one. Oona starts up a chant. Kanye puts poison on a dart. I summon another small air elemental. Evil one heals and circles. Quinn uses a virtual hammer wham bam and then heals the badly bleeding Oona. BnB swipes at Masa with his tail. I miss, Kanye hits. Masa gets hurt and chugs an antitoxin vial and gets +5 to fortitude. Quinn hits it with a spiritual hammer and heals Masa. Kanye gets ready to blow him (the evil thing that is) with a scorpion. Masa taunts some more. Quinn does some serious damage when the thing is flying away. Quinn cures Masa. Oona throws out stinking cloud and then gets swatted again from evil one. My air elemental gets in two solid hits as does my boomerang club. We continue to pick away at it.
Evil black and blue withdraws from the elementals and flies away. Kanye holds, Masa throws a long bomb and hits and kills the fucker. Good shot! We loot the nasty body and milk its poison. The evil one’s tattoos are from one of the hell planes, possibly one of the infernal abysmal planes. Kanye was able to harvest poison.
