We started with Yon being summoned to attend to the King. After being assigned to mingle in the high court, Talios made an entrance. Yon, recognizes Talios, a high ranking noble, and loyal bodyguard of the royal family. Talios makes his way over to Yon and they start discussing various topics. Meanwhile, Oliver is trying to hide out of view near one of the servant entrances, when he’s tackled with a girlish squeal of “DOGGIE!”. Being a rather tall 4′ 6″ and 90lbs Anthromorph Fox, he’s surprised to be taken down by an 8 year old girl. Extricating himself and rushing to hide behind Yon, he avoids the girl, whom is taken in hand. Oliver is introduced to Talios. Yon is surprised to see his friend from eight years ago is now a mute.

Yon takes Talios and Oliver back to the mansion – Yon gets two Bracers from the Mansion Butler, and is told by Merrick about the Skeletal structure outside of town. After a bunch of introductions – Oliver and Talios are introduced to the ragtag group of misfits.

Yon, leads the group out of the town. The guards at the gate bow respectfully to Talios. They see the structure and see a group of skeletons heading into the forest. Felix bolts to the forest, Oliver tries to stop him, but does slow him down. Felix then becomes Huge. Oliver goes to tackle him before whimpering and going into a small ball. The rest of the group sees the skeletons are being fought by wolves, and none other than the Big Bad Wolf. Yon engages a skeleton, but misses, instead he goes after Big Bad Wolf. Big Bad Wolf leads his ‘pack’ to engage more skeletons. Yon finally lands a blow on the Big Bad Wolf, one of the other wolves takes Yon to the ground [3 Hp left]. Oliver intercepts, the Big Bad Wolf, takes off and howls, the rest of the pack takes off after. As the Big Bad Wolf passes Harold and Gaby, he tosses a pouch to them.

The group gathers, Burgmor identifies the contents and weapon crystals, two of them will deal additional damage to undead, the third does the same, but will also allow critical strikes.

Continuing onward, they return to the skeletal structure, and a field of death surrounding it. After overcoming the Umbral magic, the group enters the massive structure. Inside, a skeleton is slowly forming between Four Columns, with shadowy weaves. A chalice of Undeath sits atop a lattice above the four columns. Felix blasts it down, Oliver tumbles and grabs it, but not before the blood spills upon the ground and a Large Skeleton appears fully formed. They destroy the skeleton, Yon unleashes a powerful Lightning Bolt Blast; Gaby sneak attacks and takes it down. A set of Bracers are found, and Burgmor discovers they create gauntlets of force. He grabs the chalice and sticks it in his Band of holding. After that, the structure begins to collapse, Yon reacts fast and escapes before the structure collapses on him. The entire group is coated in white bone dust.

We ended on time at 9pm.


Mike’s Submission:


Yon is summoned by the court the next morning, and he converses with the nobles.
Talios (a 14 year old noble) walks up to Yon. Talios outranks Yon by being a fosterling and is a personal guard to the royal family as well. He even attended the wedding and battled someone trying to assassinate the princess. A half orc and a shadow.
They speak about the wedding yesterday. Oliver is there as well, but stays in the background, intimidated.
An 8 year old rushes at Oliver yelling “puppy!” and glomps him. Oliver the fox creature is on the ground. (technically a grapple)
He runs to Yon. Yon tries to calm Oliver down. Yon doesn’t remember Oliver being speechless. Mentally, Oliver contacts Yon which also surprises him. Talios asks what’s going on. Oliver was told to accompany Yon by his master. Yon and Talios are both still equipped, but Oliver is not. Talios joins, and Yon goes to introduces them to his comrades.
Yon opens the door to the mansion which the others cannot. He goes through, much to Oliver’s confusion.
Yon asks Merrick for more rings. Yon vouches for the two, and gets two bracelets, one for each of them.

…ever since we unleashed the undead apocalypse there is a growing skeletal structure that the guard cannot get close to it. They grow weak when they approach. Oliver taste the bracelet. It smells like cinamon nutmeg, peppermint. Symbols glow for earth fire wind water and it has a crystal in the center. They can now see the door and go through it. Yon leads the two to the kitchen where Harold and Gabby are in, Harold eating hot pockets. From another door a wolf Felix pounces Harold. Gabby joins in and they both antagonize the wolf. Oliver smells Felix’ new bone. Bergmore comes in to investigate. Oliver snags the bone from the keep away session Gabby had then flees. Harold chases him. Gabby says hello to Talios. Bergmore introduces himself to Talios, and the rest realize and do the same, following with Oliver once he stops running.

-OOC we go over our characters-

Oliver gets a sword from the butler, and mimes to Bergmore about magic.
Felix and Oliver then mind-link. Harold asks what happened to the vocal chords. Yon explains.
Oliver smells that Felix smells like a predator and backs away. Felix looks hurt.
Talios is confused as well.

Oliver goes to a room (after direction from Yon to walk through a door)
The group decide to go to the outskirts of the town to investigate the disturbance. With Oliver.
The town guard nod to Yon, but bow to Talios.

The skeletal structure is about 30′ high and 100′ across, in a bowl shape.
There are also skeletons marching into the forest. Felix snarls and bolts toward them in a slight frenzy.
Gabby and Oliver try to stop him unsuccessfully, and when they make it, Gabby transpositions with Yon to get Yon up front.

Felix goes into a huge form, and Oliver attempts to grapple, and fails, cowering.
The battle ahead is the Big Bad Wolf and smaller wolves versus skeletons.

We all rush up, and fight… Bergmore casts a fireball, which kills the small skeleton but damages the big bad wolf and upsets Felix. Yon whiffs a smite, Felix chomps the big skeleton, the small wolves hit the big skeleton, it dies, and the big bad wolf howls. Yon calls him a coward. Oliver cowers. Talios attacks a small wolf and misses, Harold chases after the BBW, but Gabby asks why he’s not going toward the skeleton generator. Yon follows.

Felix goes another direction, and a wolf follows him but doesn’t attack him. Yon runs past Gabby and Harold talking to themselves, shouting for them to fight, and smites. Bergmore lightening bolts the large skeleton near the big bad wolf. Felix 5-foot-steps and doesn’t hit.
Yon is hit twice (24 damage) and grappled (for 11 more.) A skeleton mightily slashes Talios, but his magical shield (earthward) soaks the damage. The big bad wolf runs away and muzzle-throws a bag to Gabby. Oliver charges the wolf on Yon and angrily claws it doing lots of damage. Talios attacks the skeleton on him. Harold holds, Gabby inspects the bag. Yon breaks the grapple. Bergmore scorching rays the skeleton near Yon. Felix moves over to the section with us. The wolf moves away from Yon (who swings at it) and runs for Big Bad Wolf. Many other wolves are too. It seems the wolves are heading off for a specific place. Oliver pulls out a potion.

Felix chomps the skeleton. Gabby yells that they’re going to the skeleton maker thing.

(14 damage to yon recovered from potion of cure moderate wounds, puts him up to 17hp)
(12 points of healing from Lay on Hands, puts him up to 29hp)

Lelia found weapon crystals inside of the bag. All give +1d6 damage to undead, and one of the three gives sneak attack to undead.
Bergmore attaches the sneak attack crystal to Lelia’s weapon, and one of the other two to Harold’s weapon.
The third crystal won’t attach to Yon’s fey weapon. Bergmore does notice the “metal” of the hilt seems to be wooden in texture.
All the while, Felix goes up to the structure but doesn’t go in until we catch up with him.

Felix explains in mental link not to fight the Big Bad Wolf.
Oliver explains the wolf on Yon which damaged him was a feline. Huh?
Then Bergmore asks why Felix goes angry dire wolf, and Felix replies “my pack.”
Everybody argues with Yon, who fought the big bad wolf before the skeletons were extinguished.

We walk to the blackened grass circle containing the bone structure.
Oliver gets skiddish at the demarkation of the grass. Harold throws a branch in, and it seems not to have an effect on the branch.
Bergmore walks in, nothing wrong. Talios walks in, his hand seems to shrivel, and he leaves the circle but his hand doesn’t seem to get better. Bergmore walks out, asks what’s wrong, looking at his hand. Talios explains his hand is shriveled, Bergmore doesn’t see it and tries to detect magic. There is magic. He determines it is a illusion. Talios figures out it’s not happening to Bergmore. He turns to Oliver mentioning he’s affected by illusion magic as well. Bergmore goes back in with Talios. Yon then enters, shaking off the evil presence. Harold walks in, fearful of his precious legs being horribly altered. Gabby as well. Oliver enters at Yon’s bequest. Yon notices that Felix has not needed to have a will save. He detects evil in Felix’ direction all around us. He decides to remember that he should detect evil from Felix’ direction once this is over.

We head toward the bone structure. Inside is a room with four columns in the center with black plasma energy balls of energy and skeletons forming. Talios wants to slash one. A chalice is at the apex of the connection between the columns.
Bergmore’s mage hand fizzles as soon as it gets near the chalice.
Felix blasts the cup, and a large skeleton rises. Oliver darts for the chalice, and Yon figures out how to release his sword’s energy. Gabby sneak attacks the skeleton with her shiny new skeleton. It crumbles.
The hankie is starting to smoulder so he sets the chalice down and throws a hankie.
The dust of the skeleton has bracers which make force gauntlets. Harold puts them on, and grabs the chalice with the gauntlets.     We all run, and we are coated in white bone dust. We return to the city (Yon has an extra long holy water shower tonight)

Had a late start waiting for some players. Started at 5:11pm with GM recap.

The group headed into the Secret door into a spherical room, “Breathe” pentagram was found. Again Barrett and Andreas refused. Finding a secret passage Tod heads down. He ends up in an elaborate trap, antimagic and facing Flesh Golems.

They encounter the Ghost of the paladin Ghelord, who gives them vital information. Deciding that they need to have one sacrifice himself, Barrett goes and Eats and Breathes the sacraments.

The next rooms are explored before moving onward… They find another Pentagram, “Burn”.  Barrett sacrifices 8 hp to the cause, discovering that it won’t heal back.

They confront two “hags” and overcome them, they discover a journal — “If we hadn’t been trapped here we would have left”.

They confront the insane vampire.

Finding the secret switch they descend to the main temple. Half the group is injured when they try to pass the forbiddance effect.

Barrett discovers something in the pit, but the moment he reaches into the smoke a doorway appears. Tod mage hands out the sword, [+1 Holy Fiendbane Longsword]. With that, Barrett reaches into the doorway and disappears, the rest of the group follows suit.

They appear in a strange place. The Leader of the Fane is there, he looks back at them and monologues. He has his shadows intercept the group while he turns to kill the cleric of Gaen. Barrett leaps over the Shadows and confronts him directly.

Lytaros unleashes a devastating attack, as flames burst upon the field of battle, inflicting serious injuries, however, Aiden is able to “sweep” away the flame blasts protecting Lash, himself and Malcolm.

We end with Lytaros and the group in an epic struggle. Round 2.
