Wrath of the Righteous 3, #4: The Cult

During a missing chapter of our tale, our entombed heroes proceeded toward the bad mongrelman tribe, to neutralize them and earn their way to the surface. The wizard Oska Svoskhut recounts some of what happened and takes up scribing duties. (-GM)

20th day of Sarenith, 4728 AR

Mongrelman

We knew the mongrelmen waited just on the other side of the rise. Chief Sull knew it too, for he and his people laid low, waiting for someone to come and save them. And we came. Of course, we had come at the correct time, right at the stalemate between the cancered people of Neathholm and the Baphomet worshippers. We got our bearings and set off over the rise towards the unfriendly tribe of mongrelmen. Of course, the gate was barred, so we tried to bluff our way past the guards. That didn’t end well. Just take my word for it. You didn’t want to see all the bodies strewn across the cavern. Past the barricade, there was a tunnel.

Once we were inside, we made our way through the cave system, with a few scuffles with cultists along the way. Soon enough, we were deep in the heart of the cave system. It was dark, so our torches were essential to our survival. There was a hole in the ground, so we decided to explore it. Jinx hopped down, but misjudged the distance and landed flat on his face. As did I, but WWYWMB (I will whack you wit mah bo) made it safe and sound to the floor. It was a tough battle. Iron scraped against iron and magical balls of light flew through the air. After much scuffling, everyone was splayed on the floor except for the blind man, Aravashnial. He fought heroically. Soon enough, and with the help of multiple potions of healing, we were back on our feet, and once again, cultists bodies riddled the floor.

The leader had a note that hinted that they were part of a greater design. (See below.)

Wrath of the Righteous 3, #2: Beneath the Earth

In the unwritten first chapter of our tale, our heroes were celebrating the completion of their Crusader training when a great cataclysm befell the border town of Kenabres. The city’s stalwart leadership were slain by a balor demon and other lieutenants of the Worldwound, sending our heroes into a chasm with the blessing of Kenabres’ silver-dragon guardian, Terendelev. The Fifth Crusade has begun.

17th day of Sarenith, 4728 AR

there were these really annoying giant cockroaches that were actually really strong and hard to kill.

It was the morning of the 2nd day of adventuring, and we had just woken up inside of Torag’s temple after a hard day. We had heard that the temple, if clean, would protect its inhabitants with some kind of magical enchantment, so we cleaned it up the day before, and in the morning, it felt as if we were under the enchantment of bless.

The day before, there were these really annoying giant cockroaches that were actually really strong and hard to kill, and during the night and in the morning, there had been some scratching and chewing noises coming from outside the temple, and the entire party thought that it must be some kind of animal trying to get in but failing because the temple was protecting us. So, we all went outside and found nothing, but the sound was coming from outside of the cave where the temple was. We walked out, and I peered around the corner, and there was, just as like we had expected, a small creature burying into a small depression in the rock, I thought it might be some kind of hole where an animal might live. I started singing, and Will Whack hit it with his bow, and after a little bit of fighting, we killed the vile beast.

Wrath of the Righteous 3, #1: Descent

Herein lies the lost chapter telling the humble beginnings of our MYTHIC heroes! (-Someone far in the future)

15th day of Sarenith, 4728 AR

Day 1:

After the written exam came the real test…

My field instructor at the Crusader Academy told me to keep a journal on all my adventures in the Crusades, and since today is our last day I think it fitting to do it now. I obviously can’t write in here during the test but before and after is fine.

Okay, I just finished the written exam and now it’s time for the real test, combat!

Our group of students was led out of the building by one of the instructors. We made our way to the middle of the field. The instructor began casting a spell, and 4 seconds later a demon appeared. We were all quite surprised at its sudden appearance, but it was rather weak and the 5 of us disposed of it quickly. Everybody clapped after all the groups had finished slaying the abominations.

Day 2:

Everybody was chipper and ready to receive their diploma. True greatness lay beyond in the lands outside the protected cities, where the Crusades endlessly battled demons and whatever hellspawn that came out of that wretched hole. The ceremony was set for 3 pm, so we had time to put on our fancy hats and “freshen up.”
