Wrath of the Righteous 1, #14: Drenched in Gore

Yet more blood is splattered, as our heroes delve further into the Gray Garrison — the demon invaders’ beachhead in Kenabres — to destroy the wardstone and strike a blow to their plans of conquest. After clearing the first floor and piling up corpses of tieflings, cultists, and demons, they decided to rest in one of the Garrison’s rooms…

Rudis was up again. In the short time he had to take in his surroundings he saw the entire party except him and Hayaku were unconscious…

Rudis was awakened suddenly by a prod to the shoulder. Hayaku was quietly walking around the room waking all of the group. He sat up. He could hear quiet voices outside.

It didn’t seem to be Common. He stood, and cautiously walked to the door to put his ear to the wood. They seemed to be speaking Abyssal.

But then Mozilla, still half awake said loudly, “What’s going on?.”

The voices outside turned to footsteps in their direction. Then the door burst open, and the battle began with Rudis’ fist hitting flesh.

But then with a flash and a flurry of cloaks Rudis fell unconscious… then he was up again. In the short time he had to take in his surroundings he saw the entire party except him and Hayaku were unconscious. Rudis got one punch in then was down again… then up. 3. 4. 5. punches hit but then down again…

When he finally woke up, he found the rest of the group getting nursed back to health by Hayaku who had 2 black eyes, a gash across his back, and only 4 fingers on his left hand (the missing finger seemed to be in the far corner of the room, quietly leaking blood into the corner of Sophia’s sleeping bag). Once the party was healed up they set off again.

A loud snap sounds and several cracks appear on his head, blood squirts from the new wounds and suddenly his head combusts, all pieces off his skull flying in all different directions with pieces of brain following shortly after.

My memory is a bit hazy, but the parts I remember are in great detail. (He’s not kidding! -GM)

Ok, so, where should I start? Giant worms, naked bloated people, tieflings? I’ll start from the beginning.

Through the portal of time!

Defenders Heart’s ramshackle walls stood in front of me, since our exhausting mission we have stayed here. It has acted as a safe place, a haven. Although clean, warm, comfortable and exciting as Gram Gram could make it, I still knew that the war isn’t even close to being done, and we had a long way to go…

I walked through a hallway and socialized with the inquisitor a bit, turns out he is injured. I ask what happened and asked if I should heal him. He politely declined and said his injury was a burnt anus, said it felt strangely good and although he couldn’t move he didn’t want heals. I continue down the hallway and spotted Sophia, Ezuri and Rudis talking with the half-orc Tirabade, the light above them made their armor shine with a polished gleam.

I pull a chair up myself and ask “What’s going on? Who wants to destroy the wardstone?” Tirabade looks irritated, seems as if she hates explaining things over again, too bad sucka I think to myself.

“WE have to destroy it,” “Why?huhwhyhuhhuhwhyman”I slur to make her mad.

Wrath of the Righteous 1, #10: Clearing Cultists

kenabres2

After the party obtained the mysterious sword, they read a note giving a password to three cultist hideouts in Kenabres. They brought the Crusaders’ message to the Neathholm mongrelmen that they were welcome to help in the war, and they joined. Back at Defender’s Heart, Irabeth told the party that the rogue who joined them at the beginning of their adventure was actually her wife; the party led Irabeth to her remains. The party cleared one hideout, then helped Irabeth obtain some items from her home she had left for Anevia. But an invisible sorcerer was there searching for Anevia, cast fireball on the party, and got away.

Athos continues our tale…

Thump, rrak, went the earth.
A man, or was it a giant was emerging from the dust.
He had deep purple eyes and was as tall as an elephant.
But the party was not afraid of the giant from beneath, they stood bravely in front of the strangest stranger they had ever seen.
He was silent, and then “RRRRA” he grunted, they took it as a sign of greeting.
The party stepped forward to say hello, but the giant was already joining their ranks.
So off they went to their base, the base of Defenders Heart.
There they found a job, but a job not to be started till the first job was over.
They set off to destroy 2 more forts of 3 but the second was empty, its tower deserted (the first was dealt with a few nights before).
So they considered it done and went to the third, which they conquered and searched for goods.
But beneath they found an evil shrine, they asked the defeated imprisoned leader what to make of it, but he killed himself, by head-butting the alter, instead of saying what he knew.
But they did find some information in that god forsaken tower and they showed it to those at Defenders Heart, when they had time.

Wrath of the Righteous 1, #8: Fail

24th of Arodus, 4718 AR

Ezuri was all like, “Uhhh…”, and Rudis said, “Ouchie.”

As we all know we left off when Ezuri and Rudis were fighting a bunch of evil ugly nasty clerics. Sophia and Hayaku were escorting a young woman to her home. Anyways, Ezuri and Rudis were epically failing. By that I mean they were getting their asses kicked by clerics even though they were the fighters in the group and claim to do the most. So of course they get knocked out.

Ezuri was all like, “Uhhh…”, and Rudis said, “Ouchie.” Lucky for them Sophia and Sir Toad (Sophia’s pet toad) heard the fighting and came to the rescue, as Hayaku followed. When they got to the scene Rudis and Ezuri were being tied up. Sophia cast scorching ray and missed. The evil ugly nasty clerics saw Sophia except for the really nasty one tying up Rudis.

Hayaku said, “In the name of Sarenrae, what have you done?”

Sophia responded by saying, “Just a bunch of ugly tieflings who want to assault us.” The tieflings charged into battle which caught the really nasty one’s attention. Sophia dodged the first blade, Hayaku was not as fortunate as a scythe cut him.

Wrath of the Righteous 1, #7: Exploring the Mount

Previous post in this campaign

23rd of Arodus, 4718 AR

The battle led onto the roof and the cultists channeled demonic energy at them…

Once upon a time there lived a group of adventurers: Rudis, a kindly human trained in the martial arts; Ezuri, partly angel he is a religious and loyal fighter who shows great concern for his friends; Pelso, a blood-thirsty human who trains with bows and daggers; and finally, Maxin Flaxin Waxin Jackson, a small colorful creature who has purple hair and pink skin using magic mostly to benefit her teammates.  All have their differences, but all swore to protect their homeland from evil demons who have invaded the city.

At the time they were climbing up the hill toward the Cathedral in Old Kenabres, where their adventure started so long ago when the demons attacked, to save what lives they could. (Sophia, Hayaku and Oblivia headed off to help a woman they had saved from fanatical crusaders.) Unfortunately, there were dangers in the city that the party must overcome to reach their destination, and sure enough, as they made their way to the Cathedral two hags stumbled out of a bar. Quickly the party sprang to action, each playing their own part to defeat the ugly creatures.  Once the battle was done and the loot counted they set on their way again. But before they could take another step a gigantic green blob fell out of the sky and landed in front of them, it then sunk into the ground never to be seen again.

Wrath of the Righteous 1, #6: A City in Ruins

kenabres2Since we last left our heroes, the party fought its way through (but did not destroy) an evil tribe of mongrelmen, encountered some demons, and finally reached the surface of Kenabres! They found the once-proud border city destroyed by the demons’ attack, with sounds of battle and piercing screams occasionally breaking the silence. They encountered some tieflings and returned the rich noble, Horgue Gwerm, to his mansion, where he paid the party and decided to stay in his provisioned vault… (Grandmaster)

22nd of Arodus, 4718 AR

skull-crossbones5Abrikandilu demon

After we all got back to the city of Kenabres, we decided that we should go to the library, the Church, and Rudis’ Grandma’s house, but we got attacked by some more rats, 6 of them! Oblivia was so scared that she teleported inside a nearby house and wouldn’t even open the window. Fortunately, Ezuri did all the work like usual and killed most of them with minimal help from Rudis and Sophia.

After Ezuri took care of the rats, the party decided it would be a good idea to check the abandoned houses for survivors. Sophia had her toad go inside some of them to check/steal everything in sight. When we found no survivors, we went to the library (90% was destroyed and Aravashnial was super sad). Inside were 5 captives, and 4 evil Tieflings and their evil leader.

It was a long hard battle with Ezuri doing most of the work. Sophia freed the captives via a toad, and Ezuri did the finishing blow. We were able to rest for a little while, but not long enough before we started off again.

skull-crossbones5When we got to Rudis’ grandma’s house, it was locked. But nobody was home…

We went to Rudis’ Grandma’s house, but we encountered an abrikandilu demon along the way! It was terrorising a store and there were 2 innocent civilians inside so we decided to help. Some of the more acrobatic people (Rudis, Sophia, and Oblivia) went in through the window, Ezuri smashed through the door and engaged the demon in head-on combat and saved the day! (Even though Rudis got scared and ran away) After Ezuri slayed the demon, we escorted the shopkeepers with us to Rudis’ Grandma’s house. When we got there it was locked, (Rudis had the key) but nobody was home, so we let the civilians stay there and went onward towards the Church.

Along the way, we saw some crusaders, but when they saw that Oblivia was a Tiefling, they flipped out and not even Ezuri’s Amazing Charisma could get us out of it, so we knocked one out and the rest ran away. Then we questioned him and found that the Crusaders had been unable to sleep for days because of the Demon Attack so we let him sleep and we went on our way.

– Zander (Ezuri)

==========================================

XP so far:

Ezuri: 5,920
Hayaku: 4,420
Oblivia: 3,220
Rudis: 4,720

The End of the World

apocalypse

The fate of the world rests with our someday-will-be-mythic crew in Wrath of the Righteous: this map shows what will happen if they fail to stop the demon invasion: The Worldwound will expand and overrun Numeria, Ustalav, Brevoy and the River Kingdoms in a matter of months!

So the group building a kingdom in Kingmaker might see their kingdom overrun…

And our group that will be in Numeria when for the Iron Gods campaign might have their hands full…

It’s a good thing that Wrath of the Righteous begins in 4718 AR, or else the world might end before Kingmaker and Iron Gods even get to finish!
