Rappan Athuk #15: And So It Begins

07 Jun

5th day of Calistril, 4716 AR

rappan-athuk-meme“Come here, young fellow!” A grizzly old dwarf said at his trainee, a skinny human who couldn’t be clumsier with an axe.

“What is it Grandmaster Rumplebawtumn?” The kid came up to me.

“Your swinging was off, your positioning was terrible, and you swung like a nymph. Boy, you’re quite the opposite of the great adventurers, like the ones that came back from Rappan Athuk that day into my sisters tavern.”

“Grandmaster, are you going into another one of your stories?”

“Yes, those were the days. They came in, worn and beaten, with wide eyes, yet relieved smiles. And before I knew it, I was squeezing their tale out of them…”


“Quiet boy. As I recall…

It had been a long week. Not too long ago, a party of explorers were split up, and killed. It was in the deadly wilderness surrounding RAPPAN ATHUK. The remainder of the crew had traveled far away to gather up supplies and helpers. After picking up a Necromancing Grandmother of one of the deceased adventurers (Lily’s Grandmother), a bald-ish guy with a tendency to punch alot (One Punch Man), and a guy so edgy people got cut looking at him (Vizair), the crew went back to the main entrance of Rappan Athuk. They got there and fought a long, grisly, and strangely hilarious battle with some gargoyles. They destroyed the gargoyles’ eye gems and spread them through the wind. Of course, that is just one of the many theories toward the “Night of the million tiny eyed Monster.” After they destroyed the stones, the crew, with the edgy guy turning into a crazy nature thing overnight, went down the stair leading to Rappan Athuk, and fought a Skeleton that was really, really scary.

“Grandpa, why did you stop?”

“Oh ho, boy, I’m gonna need far more XP if you want me to tell the rest of the story.”

“Grandmaster?” The boy looked puzzled.
