Session 4

The person is fully clothed hood up…it’s way to hot for hoods to be up. How strange. How strange. She seems to have no interest in talking to us and beelines for the town. the draeugar yells in druid and the person looks at them and keeps walking. We see a maptube on her back and a weird parcel on her him. We get close and we can see the woman’s face is covered in bandages.

We stop the woman walking. We try to figure out what is going on. She informs us that her name is tatter and she’s the apprentice of the mad mage. Whoa. She keeps walking and we follow her. When we get close to the camp shed just walks through but we are stopped. She did cast some arcane spell before getting there so that could have something to do with that but I cannot be sure.

The guards tell us that no townies are allowed here, but I think they forgot that I am not a townie, and I kind of want to see what her business is here. Fuck Clive. He won’t let me through. I’ll remember it. It’s almost like they forget I have the power to protect them.

After awhile Tatter comes back at sword point mumbling about dwarves I tell her Clive is worse over here. She tells us that she is weak over here because so we bring her back to the area we start to talking to her. I ask her about the realm and she says the talisman are only good for a year and they are rude. Weird. I ask her why she tells me it’s because they deny the gift the realm will give us. The gift of this fancy power they have over there.

We continue to talk to her, and I can feel her try to read my thoughts. I block it a few times. I can tell that she is getting a little testy with me after these. Not like it’s my fault..I mean it kind of is but still!. We talk about the witch being weak and he husband dying. I bring up the mushrooms and she hasn’t heard of this effect before so I offer to share my notes.  She is happy to accept and then keeps asking me about the talisman. I keep the information to myself. Why does she need to know?

Suddenly Tatter looks up and a large gem in beard dwarf appears and starts to speak.

“Hello all, I am your final contact before army of Khazak-Hadar Empire come for you. You are last humans left and we, like you, are tired of fighting. But your defenders do not seem to be. They are stubbron and refuse to come for yoour safety.

There are only two options left to you. Live in safety as prosperous workers in the Khazak empire or die, either here or to the monsters in the wildlands.

I urge you to convince suicidal soldiers to accept a peaceful transition of power. They work for you. Make your wishes for safety known For every night until bulk of Khazak forces arrive, we will show you how you die if peaceful resolution not reached”

And just like that, the image disappears and sparkles flutter down across the town.

That was strange. It’s time to gather supplies for the trip. I try to find medical supplies but there aren’t many in the town since the fucking military took them all. I was able to secure a bottle of Vodka, sewing kit and a bolt of cotton. However, before i can make it back to camp, loud thunder sounds and sparkles trickle down. Everyone is distracted. I make it to the medical camp and tell them I need supplies. It’s pointless to hoard all of the supplies when there’s no hope. I manage to get 4 bottles of antiseptic. I tell them there’s no real hope and if they truly want to be saved they should come with us. They hesitate. I tell them if they decide, they know what to bring me. They mention my new pet looks familiar. I just shake my head. Of course they know him. It’s Gerald, but I don’t care to explain what happened. They are a large waste of time at this point.

The next morning, that guard and another are at the wagon. I make them their talisman in exchange for several bandages. The other useless guard gave me nothing. I will remember this… Before long a large fight breaks out. I’m done making talisman to organize the wagon. I send Gerald out to deal with it. He yells loudly and pushes the people away…they disperse but the group starts to grow weary of my pet. The dirt dwarf confronts me in the wagon. I confirm it’s Gerald and explain how he wanted to be with me forever…with the neurotoxin and the fact he’s a human would prevent that we entered into an agreement of burning passion. Still skeptical he moves on. No one will take my love away.

I was informed the previous night that the talisman prevent the gifts only the strongest and hold. Being strong myself and told I would be fine, I agree to get rid of it, but only if it can be dispelled. This is a family heirloom after all. I was also told the family would only get help if they needed it if they didn’t have them either. I shrug. It is easy to convince them to go with it as well. It’s not much longer until we meet up with Tatter and walk through. It’s just like it was last time. I shrug off the feeling. But the Ackles, they panic. I try to calm them down. Tell them it will all be alright. They kind of nod.

I start to grow used to everything happening here. Everything seems less strange. The cries of loved one that used to be birds to the weird shadows in the corner of my vision. It seemed…normal now.

Tatter starts to walk with us for awhile and then points ahead of us. “Hewerhall is that way. I think you (the Ackles) will like it. The others, not so much. I think you will find it boring” she tells us. I have to agree. I’m here for power. I’m here to become strong…but I have to care about Gelfi. I know she’s fond of these humans and I don’t want to upset her more than I have to with bad news ect. I point the wagon into the right direction and we go off. The Ackles are still a little shaken, and it’s obvious. I try to comfort them the best I can but it seels futile. But don’t worry! The draeugar has a plan though! Don’t worry!

He creates a Mud snowman about 2 feet fall two peach pits fr eyes and a big open toothless mouth. He climbs up the wagon slowly, sloshing around as he spider man climbs and terrifies the children. The lil boy is just screaming bloody murder, the daughter is like ok… the parents are so confused. He then gets up to the top and dances and then they are like “oh ok yay! ” and enjoy the lilttle dance. They touch him and they realize this is mud and they get super excited and they are playing in mud. the lil dude is all for it and plays with the kids for 3 hours. The kind of dwarf tells them he has to go to sleep and then he turns into a puddle mud under the wagon.

It soon reaches night and we set up the camp. They sky is a lot different here than the other place. The sky had a aurora piercing though it, but not illuminating anything. It was almost relaxing but strange…The humans were a little scared. They didn’t want to camp outside, and wanted to sleep in the wagon. I inform them only two people can be in there at once, They ask if the kids can stay. Ugh! I allow the children to sleep in the wagon as long as they don’t touch anything, the parents under it as they wanted. Gelfi and Gerald make a fire. He removes his gauntlet to light the tinder.  I lean against the wheel while Gerald stands next to me, forever vigilant. I start my medication and I feel a lucid dream coming on. One that I don’t control. I shrug it and allow it to happen. I see my first patient. The first one that died. The first one that got me interested in how the living work.

The spirit tells me what would have happened if I didn’t do this. Gerald and Gelfi were making out as the rest of the group were laughing and having a good time. Weird. Suddenly the group points and laughs and I look over. Gerald and Gelfi stopped making out and start to play with organs. Not just any organs…they’re mine. I reach out to try to get them to stop but I wake from me meditation. I feel my stomach and shrug it off. Strange dream. I snuggle close to my armored pet and tell him if he ever leaves me I will end him. He nods and pressed his helmet covered face against my forehead in a cold, metallic kiss.

Session 5

When we last left off, the group was in the Witchy Woods on their way to kill the witch or so you’d think. As you remember from the last game, the group was doing the WoW quest for Abby Lewis, the little girl who wanted to find her friends to have her tea party with. The group, after some fun little hints ans clues and a lot of nose wiggling from yours truly, reunited the little girl with her toys. As they left, Abby game them pictures of her friends before she vanishes in the door way. From there the group gets lost in the woods.

They eventually came to a dead end with two Ravens sitting on a rock, and here they learned how much Miss Mary liked them. I had created such a nice poem for them, and I think it did too much of a good job getting them out of the woods.

Here it is:
Abby’s new friends we have quickly found
Miss Mary wants you to hear our sound.
Miss Mary says that the friends need to go
Or else she’ll put you Six feet below.
Miss Mary has plans for each one of you,
And trust us, this will be nothing new!
A fine purse out of you, a new boney servent of you.
The deer and the giant are not wanted here so go get shoo!

I guess that was enough for the group to be ike whoa nope we’re outta here. Because that’s exactly what they did. The idea to kill Miss Mary vanished as fast as the illusion to allow them to escape disappeared.

So, with that the group make it to the town and where Vinny has to roll another saving throw. Which they failed. Causing them to get to the next level of the plague. Poor thing 🙁 They manage to make it to a town where they get a doctor to look at them and they inform them this is something they haven’t seen in several years and the only true cure wqas a gods blessing. From there the Doctor informs them the gods that cured the people before was named Yuri. (oh no)
The group then calls up Yuri but her assistant answered and they began taking. he confirms it’s the same Yuri then asks why. They tell him that Vinny is super sick. He then asks, a very important question.
Fitz: Well did you guys go to her Shrine and get her blessing?
Vinny: I think so
Me: Nope. You guys bought the alcohol and wanted to go but instead you got super excited to leave the town you didn’t go. (I then showed them the notes I had made)
Vinny: Oh I guess we didn’t….How long do I have?
Fitz: Well It seems like about a week in a half or so. I suggest coming home and getting fixed, there’s things you need to do here.
The group then comes back home because it was made clear they were about a week and a half from the giant quest not including the time to kill them. They joked about letting Vinny die but they did end up coming back.
So the group meet up with Fitz who takes them into the war room where everyone has gathered. They see their boss seemingly able to see (this is important)

After the warlords disperse, Yuri greets the group as her eyes go from Jade to white and she’s unable to see again. They ask her what was going on ans she explained how she was blinded by a god trying to seek her powers after brother passed away. It was a common thing among gods. Innocent right?
DM Mistake 3: I began to explain the process to the group and two of them started to get an idea…

Yuri: So during a fight for my god powers he threw poison at me and it caused me to lose my sight,
Liet: So gods can fight other gods for their powers?
Yuri: Yes, they can.
Liet: Can mortals do it?
Yuri: None have succeeded why?
Liet: But it’s possible?
Yuri: I mean….I don’t know.
Liet to Kit: We should try to Kill Yuri and gain her powers
Kit: *nods*
Me: oh come on guys……haha….don’t.
Liet: What do you think of this type of barbarian with htis race?
Me: are you serious?
Liet: I mean if I die….I’d want to reroll.
Me: You’re serious

And that’s where the session ended for the most part. The group walked and talked and were told they are going to Yuri’s home country and castle to see what’s going on. There’s a lot of rumors out there so they need to prepare.

Will the group succeed in the new land? Will they kill their boss? Find out next session!
