Murder Hobos of the Apocalypse

THE ORIGINAL QUEST
Finding the Delegation

THE ORIGINAL QUEST:
A joint venture between the Emerald Enclave + the Harpers + the Lords Alliance  to find Delegates from a Missing Caravan, last seen in the Dessarin valley. Amongst the delegates in the Caravan is a Shield Dwarf named "Bruldenthar" (the translator), who held a manuscript with special properties.

Whoever took the manuscript also wants a ring held by an elf from a monastery. They are trying to perform a ritual that they claim will “restore balance to the realm."

FIRST STOP
Red Larch!

FIRST STOP: Red Larch
- Devyn met young farm boy (Galen) xoxo
- Bort stayed at the Inn where he met a Caravan bodyguard (Zomith – half orc) who gave a lead where the Caravan was last seen. 
- Robbie & Alvyn slept on the outskirts of town. Robbie woke up to see a light in the woods. He followed it, to discover a secret meeting of aarakocra (bird people) 
- Meeting was ambushed by Qarbo, who attacked the aarakocra & Robbie. 
- Alvyn discovered Robbie missing, got Bort & Devin, and went to rescue Robbie. 
- Qarbo slew 2 aarakocra + put a curse on Bort: "Find me the Aerie or die."

NEXT STOP: BELIARD

- Nothing here.
- Everyone is quite vague & not helpful. Only clue is there are "flyboys" who frequent here. Dunno who they are yet.

THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS

- First encounter with "The Knights of Samular"
- Also encountered knights of "the Spire" who could fly (via "Wingwear"). 
- Defeated and stole their suits ~ fed one knight to Mollie
  – Robbie's alignment 'lowered' to "Chaotic neutral"

NEXT STOP: BACK TO BELIARD (?)

- I forget how we came about this clue, but we decided to find the Wingwear knights (determined they are the 'flyboys') and scouted for a place called "The Spire"

TO THE SPIRE!
Thurl's Tower (although we don't know that yet)

- Snuck up to the Spire and encountered 2-3 Sentries (whom we defeated/killed)
- Snuck into the Stables of Hippogryphs;
   - Started a fire;
    killed 2 hippogryphs;
   – Alvyn "stole" a hippogryph egg (Really, I just punched that Hippogryph and s/he GAVE me that egg; I just graciously accepted the gift I was given!);
    
Fled for our lives.

BACK TO RED LARCH / THE SPIRE!
Back...with a vengeance

BACK TO RED LARCH
- Recuperated. 
- Alvyn stored his Hippogryph egg for safekeeping with a nice old man…..and a giant Ogre. 
- For some reason (we were attacked?), Bort destroyed part of the gate protecting Red Larch; the citizens deemed us 'not safe' and banished us. #ThanksBort

BACK TO THE SPIRE
- The Spire was suspiciously empty by the time we got back to it - until we discovered that it was part of a trap that they set for us. 
- Thanks to Devyn, we TALKED our way out of being slaughtered by the Spire. Met Thurl & his general, Savra (human female) 
- One of Thurl's mages (& Robbie) cured Bort of Qarbo's tracking spell / curse…..by PUSHING HIM OFF THE LEDGE OF THE SPIRE TO FALL TO HIS DEATH. (I guess that's the only way to cure a tracking spell?) 
- Thurl's last "helpful" piece of advice was to tell our heroes to seek the aid of "someone who might be able to help" at a Mansion owned by his family. #ConniefromHR!

"CONNIE'S MANSION" + ON THE WAY TO KRYPTGARDEN FORREST
Fighting a little Elf-girl and her Dragon Nanny

- Connie's Mansion was pretty deserted; we couldn't even find out way in until we solved the puzzle/riddle about the Ravens (anyone remember what it was?) to discover the hidden entrance. 
- We met & "fought" Kiana after uncovering another secret door (which Mollie managed to find before us!) 
- Pretty sure Kiana would've beat us if not for Umsharyyath (aka "Connie from HR") 

- We learned that Thurl & Kiana are brother / sister; descendants of the Avariel (winged Elves). 
    -"Connie" explained that Thurl turned to evil prince of Air to regain that power; said she could help us if we completed a task for her (destroy the dragon who rules Kryptgarden Forrest)

ON THE WAY TO THE FOREST
- Random Encounter! Tanner (magical suit of armor who could fight / talk)

KRYPTGARDEN SUCKS DRAGON LEZBALLZ
Bort AND Tanner died....!

- We got lost in this forest for two weeks 
- Encountered human loggers 
- Tanner died saving us from a Regenerating Troll. :-(    :-(    :'-( 
- Enountered & rescued a Trent (captured by the human loggers we met earlier….who had turned mad!).  We named him "Trent". 
        In thanks, he gave us two mini-Trents. 
- Finally encountered Nuvreem (Dragon) & slayed her (with Connie from HR's help) 
    - Robbie got a cursed blade 
    - Bort died. :-( 
    - Connie from HR / mini-Trent directed us to the High Forest, where we begged the Druids to revive him.  Came back as a SILVER DRAGON

TO THE FIRE TEMPLE! / BACK TO SUMMIT HILL
pretty sure this was more than one session, but whatevs

- BORT RETURNS – AS A DRAGON! (costs us $100,000 GP)

……..also Robbie becomes a Druid. 

- As payment for teaching Robbie to be a druid / saving Bort's life, party was asked to investigate "The Tower of the Scarlet Moon". Rumor has it there are druids there. 
- Lots of people are camped out at the base of the tower, heard great things about the Fire Druid (he can restore balance!) 
- Conjured Water Elemental ("Shelly from Benefits")
    - This enraged a lot of the guards at the Tower
    - shouted "Shatterkeel! 
- Rite of the Wiccar Giant: establish balance, bring back those who are lost
- Vision seen in fire with druids outside tower, “Broad shoulders, skin the color of a dying sun, hands holding back the door.”
- Stated at entrance to Fire Tower, “Water Elemental! Shatterkeel is done waiting! To arms!”
- Met Imex, senile / crazy Fire mage – who charmed Alvyn & made him descend into the tunnels below the tower (was this why so many ppl camped out there?) 

- After freeing Alvyn of Imex's charms, fire tower explodes. 

BACK TO SUMMIT HILL (Birthplace of Samular) 
- Party recuperates. 
- Bort becomes a Paladin! 
- Robbie's sword becomes uncursed!
