Signal of Screams #5: Mixed Signals

In a missing chapter of our tale, the party met some other notable personages and availed themselves of the resort’s luxuries. At the welcome gala, the party hanakan/dinosaur saw a mysterious shadow… –GM

20th of Erastus, 320 AG (After Gap)


Virlae Nilufeh

Our heroes left off at the resort. Last time, a fraction of the party had seen a shadow lurking through the hallways. However, Zhova the vlakan hacker patrolling the hallways outside the gala had seen nothing. So Extinction the dinosaur heavy gunner rushed out of the gala to investigate. However, that’s where the trail ran cold.

The rest of the gala was uneventful, and the heroes returned to their rooms to sleep once the gala had ended. However, upon sleeping they were greeted by terrible nightmares that woke some of them up out of fear. Once they woke up they realized that all of them had been gifted with special powers from the nightmares. Some jumped an extra distance; others were given extra unarmed melee power; but all in all they were very small abilities. 

So after these stressful nightmares, the party decided to go to the spa to relax. However, in the spa the party was attacked by Virlae, one of the Buzzblades! She seemed driven to a point of insanity and started furiously attacking the party. They were with another member of the Buzzblades, Lomer, a solarian who just seemed so confused by what was happening.

Then combat began between Virlae and the unarmed party. At the beginning, the party only tried to grapple her, but she proved very resistant so the party began to punch Virlae. At the sight of his friend in danger, the solarian deployed his hammer and rushed towards the party. So Freddy Mcgee deployed his hammer and began an epic duel.

The rest of the party continued to grapple Virlae with little success. Things only defused when Zhova snuck away and hacked into the encrypted guard channel to alert all guards of the attack. Apparently, Virlae was under some kind of illusion that led her to believe that everyone around her were monsters with bloody claws and bared fangs.

Apparently adventurers can’t get two seconds of calm time.

Rise of the Runelords #8: Chopper’s Isle

After dealing with the monsters below Sandpoint, the town’s grouchy blacksmith approached the party for help. –GM

1st of Lamashan, 4707 AR (Absalom Reckoning)

Das Korvut

Oh no.  This is not good.  I’m no doctor, but when JigamaThing’s body was thrashing around like a madman, I got scared.  I had no clue what kind of poison that demon had, but my wolf almost threw in the towel because of it.  It looked like a losing fight, but luckily the small rogue pulled through due to Jail’s sucking of poison…

We had a few leads in Sandpoint: a lead on some goblin tribes and a Sandpoint legend about The Chopper.  In the demon’s notebook it said that the well that gave birth to the sinspawns came to life here 5 years ago, the same time Chopper went on his killing spree, the church burnt down, the priest died, and his daughter went missing. 

Das Korvut asked us for help. His son went missing during the Chopper’s killing spree.  He asked the town guard to investigate the Chopper’s dungeon and they said there was no point.  During the night, Das thought he heard his child saying “I’m here papa.”

We went to Chopper’s Isle and went underground.  We saw a strange room with strange designs with birds and drawings.  And Vecchio was seeing things.  We found Das’ child… who tried to kill us.  I am not going to say that I had the worst luck and accuracy of shooting in my life.  Never going to say that. 

We found Das’ child…

Back at the beginning of the dungeon we found a bat… but that was strange because we had to dig our way down, so how was it breathing?

Best wishes,
Thanatos (Ryan)

Signal of Screams #3: Work Before Play

Our heroes finally go on that well-earned vacation… or do they? –GM

18th of Erastus, 320 AG (After Gap)

Those pirates were in hot pursuit of the Goal Runner, whose residents consisted of the Absalom Buzzblades, a well known brutaris team.

Our crew, upon invitation, were making our way to the vacation resort New Elysium. However, like always, an easy escape to tranquility did not await our adventurers. For while cruising towards paradise, the fabulous Raptor’s Mercy encountered a band of pirates.

Those pirates were in hot pursuit of the Goal Runner, whose residents consisted of the Absalom Buzzblades, a well known brutaris team.

The athletes, in their panic, called on the aid of the resort. However, the Raptor’s Mercy and their crew were in the right place at the right time. The gunners, Extinction and Azara, blasted the pirates out of space. And of course, Freddy McGee went from trying to draw power from life support, to yelling and having a staring contest with enemies. And, his speech was voted “Inspirational 2020.” 

The poor pirates stood no chance, as the Raptor’s Mercy ironically showed no mercy…

The host, Filip Kallsner

Upon arriving at the resort, we were greeted with hospitality, and given our own personal technological buddies.

I feel that this is a well-earned break, as we’ve gone from running on ceilings, jumping on dragons (then falling off, but…), fighting, shooting, and chasing pirates that are attacking athletes?

Okay…?

As I said, a well-earned break.

🙂

Rise of the Runelords #7: Queen of Freaks

In today’s chapter, complete their quest to protect Sandpoint from the “freaks below.” –GM

29th of Rova, 4707 AR (Absalom Reckoning)

Our heroes found themselves still in the dungeon, and decided to investigate a place they had passed over earlier. They proceeded to find a small flying demon, who cursed them out. Our heroes logically did the same and a fight broke out. The demon started putting her blood in a Dorito triangle, which spawned lesser demons.

Our heroes bravely fought on, rushing her. She then blasted Isaac with light, and blinded him. However, he struck back, hitting a lesser demon 3 times while blind, killing it in 1 round!

The battle would continue, with more moments of bravery by our heroes. The foul demon kept turning invisible, and at one point it tricked Thanatos into laughing to a bad joke, but the joke was on the demon spawn, when we killed the final lesser demon.

The battle went on, however, knocking out Isaac. However, he was revived. By then, the demon was flying, so he ran up the wall and hit her in the face with his pole. She then tried to run but he stabbed her again and she died.

Signal of Screams #2: Operation Code Blue

Perched on the windy mountaintop of the planet Akiton, the party tries to get the stolen data from a blue dragon! –GM

27th of Sarenith, 320 AG (After Gap)

MISSION REPORT: 320.07.27

The wrecked ship was completely dark, the only other light being the infrequent bursts of flames. As we approached the hole in the front of the ship, we saw the bridge dangling off the side of the mountain. We debated on how we could get down and decided that we should have one person carry us down.

When we got down, we found the corpse of a blue dragon. As we were trying to find the stolen information ANOTHER blue dragon flew out from a hidden door. I hit it twice in what appeared to be a weak spot, as it screeched when it was hit. Then, before anyone else could react, Nee shot at it, hitting the same place as the dragon screeched again.

Before we could hit it again the dragon flew out of sight. After a couple of minutes the blue dragon tried to sneak attack us, but failed. After some more firefight Azara Scarhorn jumped on to the dragon and started attacking the dragon. The dragon fell and we were able to recover our teammate alive somehow.

Zafeldrin of the Starfinder Society thanked us and gave us his ticket to a luxury resort. Since we’re much smaller than he is, it should cover all of us.

We’ve needed a vacation!

Rise of the Runelords #6: Into the Catacombs

The party continues exploring the lead about “freaks” below Sandpoint that might be used in a new raid on the beleaguered town. –GM

29th of Rova, 4707 AR (Absalom Reckoning)

Vargouille

The party finished fight its sinspawns within the catacombs, and the cleric, Jail, gets stronger and grows closer to his deity. They moved to the next room, finding a vargouille which was a head on wings that paralyzes and kisses people to make new ones.

After killing it, they found a large birdbath-like “fountain.” They look to see what it is. (And left their own mark on it ahem. -GM) They don’t find out.

Signal of Screams #1: All in a Day’s Work

The party is a group of mercenaries that finds its talents needed during an event held by the Starfinder Society. –GM

27th of Sarenith, 320 AG (After Gap)

Our band of heroes was at a party hosted by Starfinder Society bigwig Zafeldrin, when the party was crashed by a blue dragon named Norys who stole data crucial to the Starfinder Society. The pirate shuttle made an escape seconds later.

The party pursued with gusto! They jumped into their starship, The Raptor’s Mercy, and chased down the pirates who stole the data.

Rise of the Runelords #5: The Freaks from Below

The party’s conduit to arcane energies and other realms, The Keeper, ends his sojourn with the heroes of Sandpoint. –GM

28th of Rova, 4707 AR (Absalom Reckoning)

After fighting goblins and a fierce monk we have found a journal. It states that the goblin raid was a fake attack.

I have finally found love after years of hiding and hunting solo.

Jail has spent 9 days and 8 nights trying to craft the rune into a weapon and everyone else has been… busy.

We have picked up a new person for our party after the Keeper had to go save another realm from destruction.

Rise of the Runelords #4: Over and Out

The party’s conduit to arcane energies and other realms, The Keeper, ends his sojourn with the heroes of Sandpoint. –GM

28th of Rova, 4707 AR (Absalom Reckoning)

Dear Johnny,

My last adventure was bittersweet. My curtain closes, my farewell to my team.

We left off fighting a bunch of goblins — yes, Quickster, Goblins. (It was a fantasy realm.) I almost died for the 8,907,211,666,754,999,310,002nd time. I quickly recovered. Two teammates almost died — quite upsetting, I think — they where eventually saved. I forgot: we gained a new companion, Isaac. I don’t know much about him. Vecchio knew the other Keeper, Keeper: 2-70-a-NULL.

Thanatos and Jail are like our HellBird and Rustlung. After the battle, we went downstairs, searching for someone, it seemed like we ran out of luck, but, we got into another battle, we won, though we found a human-elf rogue type of person, a being who aligned with the goblins. Vecchio almost died, Thanatos was even worse off, yet we, as the heroes, survived. We were almost completely defeated, almost dead…

Yet we made it, we persevered, somehow, we won. It took longer then anticipated.

Rise of the Runelords #3: The Letter

The party wizard, The Keeper, exists in many realities and this is only one. –GM

28th of Rova, 4707 AR (Absalom Reckoning)

After coming straight off of the adrenaline rush of a thrilling boar hunt and into the goblin-infested town of Sandpoint, we were approached by the proprietor of Goblin Squash Stables who offered two silver for every goblin head. A thought then crossed my mind: we could become a goblin hunting team.

Not a day passed before a woman pleaded with us to investigate her possibly goblin-infested family home. The woman’s son had complained to the father that there were goblins in the closet. Several nights the father investigated and found nothing. This time, the son screamed and the father went in and that was the last time anyone saw him alive.

We went and captured the goblin that was living inside the walls and thusly the “Goblin slayers”®️.

(The party also witnessed an argument between the friendly owner of their inn, Ameiko Kaijutsu, and her father who wanted her to pack up and move to Magnimar. –GM)

Soon Ameiko Kaijitsu’s servant came up to us and handed Thanatos a letter from her half-brother that I have saved over all these long 99,999 years:

We all went to the glass factory and found Tsuto’s father lying dead, impaled by melted glass.

Then the fight with a room full of goblins began. I will end this section of the group’s memoir for my arthritis is acting up. I am now at my death’s bed.

And I am still too naïve as to be content to not be called a hero post-mortem

And hope mothers still tell our stories.
