Silver Feather is to go see Demetri. Drop off Alexi’s offer, update him on the evil cults, and check the sage’s workshop.

The cult was old and fought the druids.
An anchor that is holding the rope of shadow evil. An alter of the Black Goat. Something hideous. Crystal or obsidian. Could be old or new. Could be very large (twice the height of a man).

Session 43: The Escort

Caeside speaks to the Sisters of Solace while Silver Feather and Madox take the Red Priest and cultist back to the kenku area.

4 sisters of the 16 sisters are missing.
2 of the sisters are in Devorcen’s territory.
One near bazaar.
One near Stanisic.
Jul 8, 9:37 PM
Owls are out watching Silver Feather. Owls are the eyes of death. One pops up and a half-dozen townsfolk pop out from an alley and attack. Because of a CRAZY number of Nat 20s, Silver defeats them all in a single round because Mike felt it’d be cinematic. Good call.

Silver Feather threatens the owl as it flies off – “If you attack again, I will kill the Red Priest.”

Caeside becomes a Giant Spider to catch up with the party.

At the kenku territory. Walked the Red Priest into a house that overlooks a well. Silver Feather is in disguise in there with the Red Priest and tries to interrogate him. He reveals very little (plans in place, the well water will take months to take over someone, the Strega Form of the Lady of the Owls does not care if the party lives).

Glances toward the well and thinks.
“Fools stopped me from saving the children.”
“Shrine in this city.”
He does not care if he lives.

For the children? Don’t know.

Silver Feather is pulled out and replaced with the real cultist (later). Gag the Red Priest.

The main characters pow wow.
For the kenku mythology, The Lady of Owls is the personification of Death itself. A trickster that causes death. She sees through the eyes of owls. She is a demon.
Red Priest. Children were something that he pities when talks about them.
Looking for the shrine.
Two owls are inspecting the kenku quarter. Silver Feather wounds one and it flies back toward Alexi’s territory.
The party sends 4 kenku with Caeside GPS to track another owl to Alexi’s territory.
Jul 8, 10:25 PM
Silver Feather checks with the kenku while Madox talks to the Cultist.

Everything is ok with the kenku lands.

Madox finds out:
These guys are dedicated asshats. The Lady of Owls is assisting but not in charge.
Kenku messengers are sent to Alexi and Stanasic about what we’ve captured.
And Demetri.
The party gets a long rest.
Before the long rest, Caeside heals Madox for 14 and 11 (25 HP).
4 Good Berries for Madox and 26 for Silver Feather.
Silver Feather is at 36 plus 26 Good Berries (62 HP). Plus 5 HP more from a HD (67 total).

The bosses all want to meet. All of the kenku return (messengers and hunters). Owl went down on the western edge of Alexi near the bridge and into a cave there.

Demetri has one of the sisters from last night.

Caeside and Madox go meet Stanisic while Silver Feather remains with his people to insure that the Red Priest does not escape or is liberated.
Jul 8, 11:18 PM
The prisoners are taken to Alexi. In Vela’s old territory, at least 2 men (2 more show up) come to attack.
Party order:
3 Kenku and Madox
Prisoners and Silver Feather
1 Kenku and Caeside
Caeside and Kenku drop back to stop the 4 men.
Caeside starts preaching to the crowd.
The preacher offers the cycle as his sermon.

This stops the thugs ability to easily follow.

The four circle around and march on. One remains behind and he becomes the subject of the speech and ends up driving the one off.
Madox sends one of the kenku back (to be a pair).

Area has textiles and few allies.

Silver Feather falls back and hires the mercenaries. Lead by Eck-fin.
Silver Feather gives Eck-fin 100 GP. Wants 500 GP plus information bonus.
12:00 AM
Leland Beauchamp
Silver Feather and Madox go to meet the thugs. One is killed by the priest while the other three take. Silver Feather and Madox take the priest back to Alexi.
Eck-fin met with the cultists at the Grey Shadow Inn near the docks. Madox has been there.
They met Rud-a-veer, older guy. In good shape. A fighter with a holy symbol. Red hair going to gray. Pale blue eyes. Likes ladies.
23 mins
Alexi wants to meet with Stanisic to reduce the number of bosses. We agree to convey

Demetri is having trouble with Gradimir and Dobrica. Alexi is willing to help.

Silver Feather gets Alexi to employee the 3 new thugs and cover the 400 GP in exchange for his services in the future.

Cave that it flew into is too small for animals. Caeside suggested smoking them out.

The Lady of the Owls is vulnerable to silver. Is capable of of summoning a parliament of owls. She is terrifying and can disappear into the shadows and is a powerful sorcerer. Weak against bright lights and holy powers.

XP = 1,600 XP each for all of the RP.

42 Session: Kill the Red Priest

Start out with a Short Rest as we contemplate a hallway of darkness.

Caeside gives 10, Madox gives 1, and one of the Kenku gives 3 Good Berries to Silver Feather. Silver Feather is now at 61 of 66 HP.

There is a release mechanism (Madox spots it). Silver Feather is able to jimmy them out with his thieves tools. Remove on bar allows 9" to get through. Then pop out one more. These silver bars have Eldritch Runes carved in them. Save the bars for later (on the far side of the room). 11 bars are still in place.

Madox checks the darkness with his torch. It turns to black flame. Some experimentation finds that the black flame spreads. The silver bars dissipate the darkness and turn it back to light.

Caeside casts Daylight cast on a stone. And we see hundreds and hundreds of black shades. They might be the shadow creatures from the city.

As they come, we replace the bars. They approach the bars and that stops them.
Caeside had to make a DC 10 Chr save against touching the darkness. He rolled a 17. The stone is only lightly glowing and Caeside’s skin is grayish. Caeside touches his hand to the silvered part of the staff and it feels like ice but then clears up.

Because of a large sound that is coming from the darkness, we back to the northern door. Silver Feather waited behind (and is hiding) to see what is coming.

In the hallway to the north, the party hears, from the western door, has babbling in shear terror or religious ecstasy. Madox and Caeside find the door is barred.

Silver Feather waits and hears and feels before he sees as something enormous comes and lays down before the bars. Silver can’t see anything about it but waits and listens.
A few of the shadow beings are on the far side of the bars.
Silver Feather tries a coin toss, they followed it. He tries a chant and it spreads to them and they react to it with prayer like chanting.

Silver Feather returns to them and finds that there’s someone on the far side of the western door. They believe that maybe the darkness changes beings into shadows.

We use the chant as a distraction and get through the door. Door opened, Madox charges in at who ever is in there. It’s a person praying to be delivered in old Calanier that Madox recognizes.
Madox grabs the person. He calls for Caeside and Silver. We all come in and Caeside throws the doors closed and bars them.

Captured is pale/gray skinned. Irises and eyes are messed up. He’s afraid of the light and screams.

He is Darius. Wren gives him a Good Berry. He is from Ravensgate. 5 full moons ago. Wren may know him.

He follows the Black Goat and the Red Priest. Tall and shaved head and dark eyes and thin and eats a lot and red and black highlights (inverse of the robes he’s wearing).

Madox asks what the shadows are. They are her young and they want warmth and skin.

Darius warns that night is coming and that will unleash the smoke. Silver Feather wants to leave, now.

Caeside touches him with the silver of the staff. He screams and breaks free and runs until Wren casts entangle.
It restrains him.
As the smoke comes, the party runs as the smoke comes out of the cave and heads out toward Ravensgate (invisibily). This is the source of the malaise.
Jul 1, 11:05 PM
The party heads back to Ravensgate. They make it back to

At one of the wells, a figure is about to drop poison in. Silver Feather shoots him for 13 HP and kills him. His last words were “But it’s for the children…”
We collect the poison and his holy symbol and robes and body (sling it across a horse). Wren is in charge of the body.

As we move through the town we see more and more allies of eyes staring. They appear to be townsfolk.

Caeside suggests that Silver Feather polymorph into the dead man. Silver then follows the party far behind. He may be able to draw out those enemies.
Jul 1, 11:40 PM
As Silver Feather steps through the ally, he is surrounded by dark taken townies. The green flame blade startles them but when it goes away, they attack.

Caeside casts Entangle on half of the townies.

The non-Silver Feather party is overcome in fear.

INIT
Townies – Higher
Silver Feather – 13

Silver Feather gets away from the townie attacks and then uses the flat of the blade to flat for 8 and 13 HP. Taking out 2 townies. Then Cunning Action to Dash to Caeside.
Caeside and Silver Feather lead the party back to the the kenku.
Jul 1, 11:58 PM
The kenku section of town are under siege and they offer some information. In the bazar yesterday during daylight hours.

The three party members race to find the Sisters of Solace. There, they find the red priest amid a riotous crowd.

Silver Feather does Potion of Heroism to add 10 HP and Bless for a hour.

Caeside will cast Long Strider and then Entangle on the crowd, then yell to pull the crowd and run away.

About a sixth of the crowd follows

Then Silver Feather will do the Web Wand and Madox will attack. The web seals off an ally.

Madox is off the roof and running straight at the Red Priest.

Next to the Red Priest is a form with a scyth that hits Madox for 10 HP.

Red Priest tries to Hold Person Madox. Madox makes his save. Madox burns a ki to Fury of Blows.

Red Priest is AC 17. He has a spear.

Attacks – 19 for 8 HP, 20 for 8 HP, 21 for 9 HP (magical and make a Dex save or be knocked prone against DC 14). Crowd tries to save him as he falls into them.
Madox attacks the shadow thing and does 10 HP to it.
Silver Feather casts Fire Bolt and aims for the Red Priest but at Disadvantage and a Nat 1, he sets a woman on fire and it does nothing useful. The crowd does not break and the Red Priest is instantly able to turn it to his advantage (of course cause he’s been knocked down and still winning). As a result of not getting anything positive, Silver Feather gets hit by insta-hit rocks for 6 HP (3 hits).

The Sisters light up the temple and the crowd breaks and runs.

Red Priest and followers run. Madox follows and tries to get at him.
Silver Feather is 55 HP.

Madox is attacked by shadow creatures that are summoned by the Red Priest who is waiting to get at him with his spear.
INIT
Crowd behind Madox – Higher
Madox – 13

The crowd tries to grapple Madox down.
Madox stabs him once and does 7 HP, and kicks twice for 7 HP (Dex Save that he makes) and misses with the last kick.
Caeside is crossing roofs and about to get into the fight.
Madox is hit by the spear for 10 and 5 HP.
Silver Feather and Caeside arrive to help Madox at the same time.

Silver Feather hits the Red Priest for 24 HP and 5 (spill over to a commoner) and 10 HP on the second attack.

The Red Priest does a horrible face and everyone takes 9 HP.

Madox is grappled beneath them.

The crowd tries to seize Silver Feather but misses.
Two rocks hit Caeside for 5 HP.
Cultist fails at Hold Person on Caeside because he is a spider.

The Red Priest spins around and attacks Silver Feather.

Silver Feather hits him once for 15 HP and 9 HP spill over (onto a townie on Madox’s chest).

Silver Feather takes 10 HP from the Red Priest’s evil look (Horrifying Vestige).

Silver Feather is at 36 HP.

Madox gets free of the crowd. The Red Priest misses his opportunity attack against Madox.

Cultist tries to hit Caeside with a floating shadow scythe for 4 HP (and a rock for 3 HP).
Crowd tries to grapple Madox but he avoids it. Madox gets to attack the guy. Ki to Flurry of Blows. Hits for 11 HP, 8 HP, and 8 HP (and a Dex Save) and misses with one. He goes down and the civilians run.

Silver Feather leaves Madox to deal with the dying Red Priest while he cuts the cultist out of the crowd and brings him back.

Madox does Amulet of Thoughts on the Red Priest.
That does not work so well.

Session 41: Enter The Goat Men!
We Skipped 3 Sessions to do Playtesting

After 3 playtest sessions, we return to the regular campaign.

Less Aranel, the party heads north to the old fort. Caeside, Madox, Silver Feather, Wren, Skybreacher, and 2 other kenku form the party.

Due to a malases, Madox and one of the kenku gets disadvantage on Wis and Cha checks.
The old fort is a ruin. A path leads down the cliff face (leads to an open . When looking down, we feel anxiety as we approach.

Caeside provides:
Good berries PCs x20
NPCs x10
The party goes to the fortress gates we hear wolf-like howls from the ruins.
Wisdom Saves:
Silver Feather – 4 (failed)
Skybreacher – 16

Because of the Fright, Silver Feather insists on leaving the ruined fort.
Instead, they go down the path to a cave (above the ocean).
The party enters into the cave. There are artificial columns in the cave and stairs.

Silver Feather acrobats up the ledge. A set of double doors of wrought iron with imagery of the goat and young girls. Nothing else in the room.

Silver Feather tries to lift the bar using his magic sword but can’t. Caeside transforms into a chameleon and goes under the door to lift the bar. Caeside hears voices and sees light on the other side.
Caeside lifts the bar and is not noticed. The voices continue. Caeside opens the door. They begin chanting.

This is Caeside with the party http://files.elderscrollsonline.com/cms/2017/02/5c0aa27b836b1c526d3e9a78bae10015.jpg

Into a diamond-shaped room with a dais in the middle and pillars and doors at the points of the diamond on the walls. In the center we see seven figures in robes facing each other. Light is coming from fungus on the doors and pillars.

Silver Feather uses his Web Wand (takes concentration). Silver Feather will concentrate and use magic longsword.

Caeside wildshapes to a spider and crawls around the ceiling.
That IS Caeside!

https://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/cirith_ungol.png

The ceiling is a mosaic made of stones. Spider-Caeside sees two rooms cut off by bars with one figure in each room (far wall to the sides). They are staring at the room. They are in robes that are more ornate than the 7 in the room.

Caeside tries to hit his guy with a spider’s web (NAT 20). To restrain him against the bars and he cannot breakfree against it in the first round.

Madox goes to the straight back of the room door and opens it hoping to chase his guy. He flings it open. Half-circle room with pillars and another dais with an enormous black cracked crystal. With doors on the far end are open and it is magically black.
Madox breaks to the left and that door (wooden and locked). Madox kicks it in (with a 27 to hit and does 12 to it). It goes flying inward. Madox feels like the guy closed a door and locked it.

At the kenku area, the party meets Wren who is trying to save the children. Wren is exhausted and runs up to Silverfeather and passes out in his arms.

Caeside realizes the disease is a poison (he saw it during his early days as a apprentice). Poison and he tells them as much.
Caeside provides Goodberry from that point.

Caeside gives them 10 Goodberries each. It fixes the HP but not the STR.

The party finds the flask of poison (Caeside) and the Shadow corpse has a amulet of a thousand goat heads.
The party heads off to see the Sisters to get the Greater Restoration (but it turns out that a Short Rest cures it all).

Silverfeather asks if it could be Vela. The Sisters are not sure. Madox suggests sharing the amulet. They recognize it. The Goat of the Blackwoods with a Thousand Young.
Ancient cult associated with fertility and the end of the world.
They were housed in an ancient fort centuries ago.

The Sisters do not feel that any of the bosses is involved in this.
A few miles north of the city (3 hours).
The party meets with Marcus. Toward 10 at night. He is drinking and talking to a wench.
Madox suggests showing the amulet.
Marcus will convey this to Stanicek.

We also need an alchemist/ herbalist/ poisoner.

Silverfeather will send a kenku to teach Marcus, and through him Stanicek, the kenku water purification ritual.

Madox’s question for Marcus about Dead Dalric’s stuff? Dimitri (on the bazaar) is holding his house. Waiting for an heir. Dimitri would likely allow entry to the house. The other bosses are worried about what the magic items.

NOTE – Mermaid is in a lake near Ravensgate waiting on us.
Plan is to go to the fort in the morning and meet Dimitri the next morning.

Charisma Save (DC 10):
Madox and Caeside – 10
Silverfeather and Aranel – 7 (Failed)

RESULT: Disadvantage against Saves, Checks for WIS CHA against a non-Shadow’ed creatures.

Session 38: To Save a Unicorn

Madox is off to get in touch with the other monk.
The party lays low at Phandalin for a month.
JOHN – For upkeep, spend half money for the month.
Silver Feather sends a message to Ravensgate to see what is going on during the month. Spring trading season has been going on. Zoloto and Sarbryanyi and Zachod trade among themselves (Mimnir is the largest kenku settlement in the Eryee). Ravensgate boss war has yet to happen (but it’s coming). The sent kenku from last session made it to Ravensgate and are settling in.

Mike hints that we need to make Zachod easier for the kenku to deal with.

Kingsreach (ruins) Jillian the druid (bad druid and the highest druidess in Umbra) has taken it over. And Duke of Aramoor wants to be the King of Umbra but Jillian is withholding it BUT also influencing him. In regards to the kenku, he does not officially oppress them and his kenku are in a better position. Aramoor is a rich city.

The line of the Umbra kings died out a century ago. The Duke of Aramoor is the most powerful. Cevorik Duchy is his land. He supports the druids but they keep him at arm’s length.
Caeside is curious about finding someone from the old royal bloodline. No one is left but there are rumors.
JOHN – Caeside asks Silver Feather to get his kenku spies to start looking into the possible royal bloodlines. Sent to Ravensgate as a magic message along with 100 GP to start to look for possible royal alternatives (bastards and minor houses).

Caeside gets Wren to join the party in Phandalin as his apprentice. She joins and Caeside begins teaching her about the Phoenix.
Aranel, for the last month, she went back to her elven village (Kota-Hutan). She is met by Del Saren and tells her that the unicorn of the Aderyn Forest has been captured.
Human wizard with a big, garish hat and a wagon has captured it.

Aranel comes to get the rest of the party and tells them of the unicorn and the kidnapping wizard.
Caeside thinks this wizard is Lee-Lorge. He collects animals. He is from the south and powerful. He captures animals. His garishly, brightly colored wagon.
Lee-Lorge is headed north toward Ravensgate.
Caeside casts Summon Animals to summon hawks to search the road for Lee-Lorge.
Conjure Animal (8 hawks for an hour)… not Summon Animals…
One of the hawks comes back and says that he pulled off at Talleux and doing a show (for a couple of days).
Wren (the kenku druid apprentice) joins the party.
The party strikes through the southwestern corner of the Arrowfell Woods to shave off time. Two days travel to do the trip to Talleux. They rejoin the road south of Thundertree (to avoid the dragon).
Marching order:
Silver Feather
Caeside
Wren
Aranel

Caeside casts Conjure Animal and sends eight animals in a different direction (toward the Wandering City) to distract the druids.

The party goes to the Willow Marsh to meet the druid, Neven. He’s the druid least happy to be ok with the druids.

Apr 8, 10:29 PM
2 unwounded giant owls and 2 wounded ones left.

Silver Feather shouts “Surrender” in Auran (Silver Feather’s people’s language) and it does. Silver gets it to send the other giant owls away.

“Parsalia sent us.” His flock is at Parsalia’s command. They are actually conjured fey turned into giant owls. We ask the owl about Parsalia. “She is close,” and then he bursts into blue sparkles.

Par-tsalian casts a spell causing hail. Does 9 and 12 damage or half on a save.

Save is 15.

Caeside does Detect Magic and finds a Divination magic about 10 feet away. It is following Caeside.

Caeside casts Dispell Magic. Caeside rolls a 14 and it disappears.

We all talk.
About the druids, Phoenix, the Worm, Agatha, and assassinating a vampire lord.
Going back and forth about consequences until the discussion comes to the point that Silver Feather loses his mind and starts yelling at the druid because he keeps telling , calling him “swampman” for staying out of things while Silver Feather and his people are in danger and need to do things to help his people.

The Golden Horde is putting together an army and the Ossirri Lords can charge across Umbria.

… yelling at the druid because he keeps telling the party they are ruining the world. This upsets Silver Feather because he has to do a lot to survive and raise up his people. As he starts yelling, he calls him “swampman” for staying out of things and becomes insulting. While Silver Feather and his people are in danger, he is trying to help, and need to do things to help his people.
He storms off.

The druids talk and have a good conversation.

The Golden Horde is putting together an army and the Ossirri Lords can charge across Umbria.

While Neven does not take Caeside under his wing, he does offer this. A direct attack on Caeside is a direct attack on Neven.

At the end, Silver Feather (after being calmed down by Aranel) returns to the hut and apologizes for his outburst to the druid.
Neven is cool and gives Silver Feather a sack of worms.
50 mins
NOTE – Caeside carved Phoenixes for everyone as his symbol even before knowing of the Phoenix.

The party makes it to Phandalin where Baylin and Anya decide to stay. The town is good.

The party presses on to Connyberry. The town is good.

On to Agatha’s cave. Just Aranel and Silver Feather enter her lair, weaponless.

Agatha appears and Silver Feather and Aranel present her mask to her.

“My face! My face! My face!” She becomes beautiful again.

Silver Feather asks her if he can reach out to her again for help. She agrees.

He also warns her about the fact that the Ossirri may come for her (because he is distinct looking). As a result, she gives him a Ring of Alter Self (3 Charges and regains 1 per day. No time limit on how long a single use lasts (save for Concentration)).
Each of us get a 1,000 XP each for finishing the over arching quest.

NOTE – Agatha’s Mask is returned.

As the rest escape down the stairs, Silver Feather pulls the Golden Rider female to the side and asks if she wants to go back to her people. She is surprised by the offer. “Please, just give us time.” She consents.

Going to the dungeon, we get the rest of the men to go to the dungeon to free their allies. They do that and we decide to escape.

Mask. Formed in the face of a beautiful person. Neither male nor female. Caeside casts Detect Magic (Illusion, Enchantment and Necromancy).

The party (with the mercs) escape across the fields and rivers and travel at night to Rema’s Watch.

Caeside sends a message to Lady Silva thanking her for the advice. Caeside does not get to talk to her but leaves her a carved phoenix so she can reach out to him if she ever needs him.

The Eyes of Rema give the party advice. The Golden Riders are attacking all along the Greensward. The party decides to travel to the east side of the Whitefang Highlands.

Madox leaves a pouch of 50 GP for the Eyes of Rema.

Madox and Caeside (without Silver Feather and Aranel) discuss if something should be done about Agatha. Cause they’re evil.

Caeside asks Aranel if she has a way to contact the dark elves. Aranel has a magical whistle to contact the falcons that can deliver the dark elves.

Caeside writes a letter to Marada (to be sent via Aranel’s falcons via a magical whistle).

At Palin’s Field, the party angles east and – Perception (17) reveals to Madox and Aranel realize that they are being surrounded by kenku.

Kinnique of the kenku. He is from the Wastlelands of Cavala. 7 warriors and 8 women and hatchlings. They look ragged.

The party and the kenku talk. Silver Feather gives them information about Ravensgate and where it’s safe and then more about the Phoenix. Silver Feather gives 100 GP to the kenku. Silver Feather also sends a letter with them to Greywing. Caeside sends one to Ren.

Silver Feather pushes them to go to Ravensgate and settle there. Silver Feather Persuasion check 16.

Kinnique share this:

Renewed war between Ma-La-Kai-Tsu (Kenku’s original island) and Westernlin. Ma-La-Kai-Tsu are winning.
The humans there have pushed a lot of kenku out of their island to Ravensgate or Griffon’s Eyrie or Mimnir.
Galadan and Callain are warring. Galadan is winning.
Ancient forces coming out of the desert (home of the humans).
Migrations are happening.

Session 35: Chateau de Vampire Part 1

Return to the port town after the Phoenix/Worm Temple.

We spend two weeks there.

In town, Aranel recounts what happened to her – she was separated from the group and ended up in the library with a dark elf who gave her a book (The Reaving of the Eldane by O’Tommo the Sage written in common, originally in Calvalen) and recommended that she read it.

Dark elf (worm follower) we ran into in the temple, we let him go.

We found another book called The Fourth Prophecy of Nat-The-Nail.
The river port of Skjor.

Mar 18, 9:41 PM
Vistula suggests her brother may be at his chateau – Valarik’s Chateau. 3 floors and a dungeon. 20 standard guards and some vets and maybe a few sons of the Ossirri Lords. Staff of 20 standard servants.
Guards have a separate guard post.
Valarik is a very dark character who tortures virgins over the course of months. The towns around his chateau are his “hunting” grounds.
Vistula suggests that he uses the mask to travel about during the day. If it is removed during the day, it will hurt him. He removed it at night. Holy men can drive them away. They do not like running water. Silver hurts them.
The mask looks like an elven face and made of silver. No straps.

The party travels along the river from Skjor to Blackstone Keep.
Baylin and Anna join us. They are expecting good loot.
Silver Feather waits on the barge while the others pretend to be Vistula’s servants. Vistula slips into the city to find out that her brother will take a vacation to his chateau soon.
