Session 3

Two The Redbrands ran off after the fight. They took Mae/Pebbles and Gardain Rockseeker gold. Kallishit Malisac rejoined us.

Went into The Sleeping Giant Inn
Two main powers: Halia Thorton was town power from beginning. One was elected because of money, but Halia Thorton “Her Ladyship” is not elected but Harbon Wester is, mostly based on magic.

Sleeping Giants Inn’s is all shady because of the Redbrands, not out of choice. Krista said the Inn used to be better than the Owns Stonehill Inn.
Krista tells the group that she is pretty certian that the towns master, Harbon Wester is somehow in with the Redbrands.
The party learns that someone by the name of Glass Staff is the leader of the Redbrands.

They also hear of Sister Gural – priestess of the God of luck. who is said to read your fortune if you pay.

When Gardain Rockseeker asked about Toblin Stonehill, Krista laughs. She made it clear she is clearly not interested in him, but that Toblin had a friend killed by Redbrands fairly recently.

Back at the Owns Stonehill Inn Owns wifes tells the party a Bard is coming soon to perform.

The party decied they need to good to the Phandalin Minor Exchange and meet with Halia Thorton.

Meanwhile Mae/Pebbles waits 2 hours to meet with an old friend named Moth.

Turned dude into a tree

Moth was Mai’s closest friend.
Halflings – Mai was was apart of the Redbrands
Pebble
[[Glass Staff]] leader of Redbrands
Moth talks about a potential job sneaking into Halia Thorton‘s place. Apparently it can’t be done.
He then speaks of Sister Gural and how awesome she is and how she will tell you anything you want to know.

The rest of the part goes to meet Halia Thorton. She is a slinder women in her 30s. Her hair is tied in tight braid. She made a deal to bring them the leader of the Redbrands for 100g alive or 50g alive. Will give Kalli leadership of town if brought.

Where is the mine of Gundren Rokseeker? – mountains, deeper, past forest, mountain side, no opening, here is the cave… Wave Echo Cave…. How dangerous, sealed with Rune. Or lots of shuffles.

Memory goes out of my mind.

Knox’s charater knows the place Hotenow Volcano

Castle – Gundren – hurt but alive – moved instantly – on root to a cave. Locked by a rune. To unlock you must capture one who helped make the ruin. The Spider has made Dopelgamers, either one can help to reverse the ruins. Need their hand…
One can be found in the castle that Gundren was in.

Look for Dopelgamers, also look like normal people.

How to capture Glass Staff – resides in Tresendor Manor, east of village. Attack from front is folly. Power lies with the halflings. Secret enterance into the manor.
Blinks, halting that can get us into the manor. Hoods would be recommend.

Halia and Namari talk. Discuss the faerie dragon Ruo. Lady Thorton asks for some of the dragon blood. Namari says no, says she will give her another scale. Lady Thorton looks around like she is calculating something.

Thorton makes a “call” through the construct to Sister Gural. Sister casts Greater Restoration through the construct. Fairy dragon seems to be in pain. Ladyship slumps on the ground, construct falls, and so does the fairy dragon. Flicker on the constructs. Constructs are connected.

Season 7

Arrived at Cragmair castle. 7 crumbling towers. Goblins, few bug bears, also a different kind of creatures. A bunch of pumpkin heads. No windows, only arrow slits 10 feet off the ground.

Creatures walking in, look like different people, but seems like they are the same person.

Liss reveals that his arm is slowing getting taken over the dragon scales. He also sounds much more like a man. Sqirrek inspects the arm with general medicine and arcane means. Unsure if it will take over his whole body or just the arm. Liss can’t go on, so Sqirrek flies him up into a tree so that he will be safe.

Rest of the group take potions, Kosef Tohami, Mae/Pebbles, Sqirrek take potions and turn into bats. Start flying through building. Kosef Tohami flies into a room with goblins at an alter.

Kosef gets captured by goblin boss and gets put in a cage on his belt. Kali discovers a trap and stays away. Mae and Sqirrek discover an albino Owlbear who is huge and scary. Sqirrek tries to sneak in, but gets attacked by the Owlbear, he dodges the attacks and flys into the next room but finds a dead end by all those doors. Mae enters the room, saw Sqirrek was safe, then went around the far side of the castle.

Mae continues around and find an open cellar, enters, seeing some faces carved into wall, that appear to be looking at her.

Sqirrek flies in, tries to help Kosef, doesn’t work, then tries to distract them goblins, but gets swiped takes 8 points of damaged and turned back into a Aarakocra. Kosef gets the key unlocks the cage, and turns back into a human, taking damage from the cage. Mae flies in and poofs back into herself.

Mae shoots big goblin in the leg, Kalie attacks him as well, Sqirrek kills him. Mae takes out another with her bow, and Kalie attempts to reason with the goblins, it doesn’t work, so he attacks. One goblin grapples Sqirrek’s wings, Sqirrek oneshots another and tries to attack another. Two goblins run, one is still on Sqirrek’s wings. They kill off remained goblins minus one that Sqirrek tries to chase but loses track of him. Kosef tries to enter trapped area, floor falls away and he wall runs to get to the door. Sqirrek, after casting prestidigitation, joins him.

Kali finds an orb that is important that does stuff, probably the orb that Mae is supposed to have stolen. Enter room with three bug bears, Moth, Mae’s aunt and cousin are there. They are slowly being turned into plants. Find out that there is a magical focus that is keeping the spell going. It may be on the wizards person or near by. This is not normal magic, but it is probably added from some kind of deity.

Kali reveals that he has the Luck Stone. Sqirrek examines the stone. Holding it is like flying forever in the “Air plane” per DM, with his tribe. It is everything wonderful and happy and it is enticing. Luck is given from Goddess of good luck and bad luck. Understands that the longer someone has the stone, there is a year of good luck and if you loose it it is a year of bad luck. Also, if you die with the stone, you would no longer have the stone, therefore theoretically you could have bad luck in the after life. Sqirrek, knowing this, keeps the stone and tells them that it is to much for any man, and says they should keep it safe and protect it. He puts it into his backpack.

Enter next room where the goblins were that were at an alter, making lots of noise. No one is there. There is an alter with various implements of some ritual covered by some cloth. Sqirrek tries to check for magic, sees nothing. Checks for traps, nothing, tells Kosef to go for it. Kosef moves middle black cloth, and sees a beautiful glass stonework.
One has symbol of ogma, God of knowledge. One in blood, don’t recognize it.
Cloth on left and right get moved. This is a holy area that has been defiled. Beautiful sculpture are on both sides that has been destroyed. Ogma is an interesting god to follow, Ogma is known as the father and the mother, open to all races and sexes, female version is Kerma. All serious followers believe that they are one and the same. Female version is on one side male on the other.

Sqirrek, hoping to find the focus that was used for the spell that is making Mae’s family plants, picks up the chalice and breaks it. Nothing happens. He picks up the skull, and crushes it in his hand. Black shit comes out and envelops Sqirrek. He shrugs off the effect with a 21 Con Save. Definitely would have killed him otherwise.

Check on the Mae’s family, still plants. Sqirrek reaches into his backpack, touches the Luck Stone for a moment, then closes the bag again. Kosef sees it and demands the stone. Sqirrek gives it to him.

By clearing the alter, alter glows burning away the unknown blood symbol, of course Kosef Tohami tries to break it but fails the role so it speaks to him. Sqirrek kneels, casts a spell, asks for knowledge of how to break the spell. God speaks, will not help with questions, but will reward them. A figurine appears. Asks it to restore the temple. Must destroy the false god, as you just cleared it. Sqirrek, stands up and looks at the figurine. Radiates magic. No where near like the stone that feels good but a temptation. Friendly, doesn’t make you hunger for it. Active the stone, starts to beat in Sqirrek’s hand, bounces out of hands, expands into a black unicorn. He talks like a Black Southern Baptist Preacher. Find out that he can heal people so we run out of the fortress and Sqirrek flies up to the tree he had dropped Liss off in to bring him down, and he is GONE!!

We have an Obsidian Statue that is kind of blob like thing that can turn into a lot of things.

Chapter 8

Find Liss in the bushes, throwing up acid. There is scales across his eyes and one of his eyes has turned copper. Unicorn looks at Liss, asks about the Norsic thing, evil wizard thing… Northic made him more susceptible to transmutation. Going to stop his heart, but need dragon parts.
Unicorn casts a ritual spell with the help of Kosef Tohami. Stopped the curse thing on Liss. Unicorn turns back into statuette. Sqirrek picks it up.

Enter the castle again. Kosef gets his axe stuck in one of the faces on one of the walls. Everyone joins to help.

Sqirrek opens the next door and sees Ilarno Albrek who casts friends on him and tells him to get his Luck Stone. Sqirrek goes back into the room and tries to get the stone. Iarno comes out and tells them they have 5 mins. Mae and Sqirrek try to take the stone from Kosef but he repeals them. Mae and Sqirrek yell at Kosef who pulls out the stone. Sqirrek flies into the air and take the stone out of Kosef’s hands and throws it at the rat. The rat picks it up.

Meanwhile Liss is trying to open the magic door in the room that Ilarno Albrek was in.

On the wall there is a riddle about how to open the door.
the doors
head to mouth
hear, smell and truly see.
right to right, and left to left

Liss opens the door. Liss casts shatter into the room. Hear deep grunts, feminine outbursts, carp and Quellen cry out. They both pass out. They are dead.
Sqirrek walks into the room and tells them that they lost the only bit of leverage left.
FIGHT!!! Crazy lady is in there plus plant zombie bug bear and some Treants.
Crazy gets killed by Mae.
Almost all died.
There was a dwarf looking like a plant there. Gundren is dead.
Sqirrek goes off and shoots the bugbear with arrows. Liss tries to help the Owlbear but doesn’t make it better.
Everything is dead but we lived.
Sack of 220 silver. 44 silver to everyone.

Go back and got the horses. Told druid about Mae’s aunt dying. He’s sad. Sqirrek feels an itch where he lost that feather from Halia Thorton.

Rode back, got a drink, got blasted, went to bed.
Halia Thorton shows up at the bar and asks to talk. Sqirrek and Lis – Sovles Sandanadel talk with her. She says that the towns safety of the town is important to her. Something was able to get past and into wave echo cave. Rebirth would be a rebirth of Phandalivin. Sentry’s disappear around the entrance.
She says she wants to help. Wants to aid us.
Haven’t found the plot of the Spider. Don’t know what they are planning to do. Offer of alliance with the her Ladyship.
