We left our party down in numbers and mid-battle as they confronted a powerful spellcaster. From the bottomless pit, our missing monkey continues the tale. (-GM)
12th day of Abadius, 4718 AR
We finished killing the invisible wizard — by that, I mean my fellow adventurers killed the wizard; I was dead as a monkey who jumped into the void. Shia and Lone Wolf also died in that fight. The half of the party that was still among the living looted a brazier of commanding fire elementals, a staff of transmutation, and a ring of pure form. After that, they returned home to rest.
The next day they went to the capital to recruit party members and resupply. Another bard by the name of Shia joined the party; it seems a little suspicious that there have been three now. A warpriest of Sarenrae, Gandalf the Bright, and an aasimar summoner known as The Hero of No Name joined as well. I took a liking to the summoner and decided he was a fitting person to take my place as the mapper in the party. For some unknown, unclear reason the summoner bought a crap-ton of alchemist fire.
During the debate of where to adventure next, the summoner proved to be even more likeable because he suggested where I would have wanted to go, although the party decided to go somewhere else. Walking along the coast for about two days, we encountered a sea hag of sorts who claimed she could tell the party their future in exchange for a mountain of useless magical arrows which I had left behind. The party declined the offer and traveled on. They traveled for days up the coast and crossing multiple rivers, until they finally spotted a wrecked ship in fairly rough water. They thought about swimming across to the ship, until they noticed several sharks beneath the water. The Hero of No Name summoned a few celestial sharks of his own to combat the hostile sharks and clear a route to the ship. Then, using a bit of magic, we got enough people over to the ship to loot it.
While the summoner’s celestial sharks circled on watch, Valestar and Shia entered the shipwreck, only to find aquatic zombie sea pirates which they disposed of quickly. They found some treasure and a horn of valor.
The party decided to make their way back to base camp. They had only been walking for a day or so when they encountered a horde of idiots who wanted their money. I say idiots because they didn’t stand a chance against the hell that would be brought upon them. The battle went like this: their leader turned invisible, our summoner summoned a huge fire elemental, our melee units charged their melee units, DFEFA blew the horn of valor summoning a horde of barbarians who finished off the enemies. They never did find the invisible leader. I believe he escaped to his own base, but at least they won’t have to deal with these annoyances again because he will warn his friends.
