Princes of the Apocalypse #14: A Mission for Yartar

After plumbing the depths of the stone monastery, the party decided to take a trip to the city of Yartar. The party necromancer, Reaper, tells their story. (-GM)

4th of Kythorn, 1491 Dale Reckoning

Lalia made contact with Yartar’s thieves guild.

We decided to visit the city of Yartar. Before we left, Lalia and Hypernova bought herbalism kits in the hope of making potions of healing. I bought a poisoner’s kit in the hope of making poisons to make the fighting easier. We were ambushed by an ogre and some orcs. Papyrus did an awesome return-to-sender with a javelin. Papyrus and Hypernova, being elves, did not sleep so they were the first awake. My owl telepathically woke me up. My owl had oil of taggit on its talons so that hurt the orc even though the shocking grasp rebounded on my owl when it tried to shock the orc. The orc fell unconscious.

On the road to Yartar we ran into some earth monks whose monastery we sacked. They had one armored earth warrior. the rest being weaker monks. They had short bows and that was kinda annoying. We need to hire some of the armorsmiths cause they somehow make good armor out of stone when some people can’t make good armor out of metal. When we reached Yartar, Lalia found a thieves guild and we bought a potion of greater healing. We agreed to help a caravan deliver their goods. They kept being attacked by bandits.

This might just have been me losing consciousness, but the fire cultist started to blur…

In the middle of the night, some fire cultists attacked us. I used enlarge person on Papyrus and he was dropping cultists right and left. This is the last thing I remember. Hypernova told me later that a fire cultist cast fireball twice and it knocked out me and Lalia. But the guards helped and chased him down. This might just have been me losing consciousness, but the fire cultist started to blur. Ander came over and healed me.

Before I lost consciousness, I remember panthers attacking the fire cultist!? I am really sorry if my thoughts are jumbled; I am remembering as I write. It is hard being knocked out and then asked to remember it…

Princes of the Apocalypse #13: The Monastery Incursion

In a missing chapter of our tale, the party had a nightmarish dream sequence before finding some lacedons (aquatic ghouls) beneath Rivergard Keep. In this chapter narrated by the party druid, Isaac, the party finally makes a breakthrough at the Sacred Stone Monastery. (-GM)

29th of Mirtul, 1491 Dale Reckoning

By Hypernova Starfall

We enter the room in which we’d previously slain the umber hulk. And then Reaper summons a minor illusion of Lalia screaming. (Somebody shoot me please.) Reaper also viciously mocks the air.

“Dumbass,” Lalia says.

I am meanwhile studying my Shadowbook. Also, Lalia tries to disable a nonexistent lock. She fails miserably at covering it up. We begin arguing over sources of light.

We enter a pitch-black room which is then illuminated by my staff tip. Ander, a burly paladin, stands in front. We walk down a long, dusty hallway. The unlocked bronze door swings open as Ander tries to unlock it. We enter a musty room full of skeletons (which are in little niches in the wall). Slabs with still-fleshy corpses on them lie around.

And then the corpses lurch forward, their empty eyes glinting with murder.

Princes of the Apocalypse #12: Beneath the Earth

In a missing chapter of our tale, the party had a nightmarish dream sequence before finding some lacedons (aquatic ghouls) beneath Rivergard Keep. In this chapter narrated by the party druid, Isaac, the party finally makes a breakthrough at the Sacred Stone Monastery. (-GM)

27th of Mirtul, 1491 Dale Reckoning

Episode 1: Greatest Victories of Princes of the Apocalypse
Scenario: Confronted and flanked by 9 or 10 monks, a monk spellcaster, stone warrior, and one monk with especially high heels that are very sharp vs. the adventurers.

I sincerely remember the moment when Lalia charged up to the high-heeled lady and got attacked.

The battle started right before I cast conjure animals and spawned 8 snakes that went for their spell caster and stone warrior. The spell caster said weird words and everyone felt slow for second, but some of my companions and I shook it off.

The monks charged us in the back and took out Hypernova by knocking him unconscious. The party fought back with tremendous strength. Then their spell caster tried to blow off my snake’s ear drums with the shatter spell, but most of the snakes resisted. I sincerely remember the moment when Lalia charged up to the high-heeled lady and got attacked. Lalia looked very battered from my vantage point, and the lady almost stumbled by the huge impact of the sword’s slash.

I spawned some big eagles to help us, but only 2 minutes in, it was looking like a resounding victory for us. The funniest part was when one monk was running for it, he got grappled by a snake and killed.

Princes of the Apocalypse #8: A Brick Wall

The party once again tries to take on the monastery with earth cultists inside it, but this time with help from Feathergale Spire. The residents of the monastery again put up a tough fight. (-GM)

11th of Mirtul, 1491 Dale Reckoning

monksWe started by traveling back to the temple. Over there, we sought high ground to find other entrances and see what the whole temple was like. We saw two side entrances. As we snuck back around, two monks from the monastery attacked us. One of them decided to go back for help. We killed the monk in 3 or 4 rounds.

As we went around to the front, 6 or 7 more monks attacked us. We fought. Two thunder waves were cast. I fled a little, but came back to help. We eventually fought off the monks.

Afterward, we ventured into the temple a little bit more. On the right, we saw a monster. We fled down the other passageway as our rogue Lalia jammed the lock. Two duergars appeared right in front of us. We fought them and Isaac cast heat metal on one of them. Then two more duergars and an enlarged one appeared in front of us. So we were fighting five normal duergars and an enlarged one. We eventually defeated them when another unknown monster started coming toward us. We ran.

Papyrus’ boyfriend, Windharrow, also left because he had business to do. So we returned to Red Larch.

Lalia, lightfoot halfling rogue 3
