Nirmathas Secrets

The Sleeping Places of Adventurers
Session 5

The party snuck into the gnoll camp, and discovered they were keeping goblin slaves. They discussed the situation, and decided it was too late to find some other place to rest far enough from the gnolls camp.

The ambush began with an arrow from Ahli. The gnolls expected any attackers to use light at a much farther distance, and were unprepared. The pack’s leader enlarged himself and struck a powerful blow at Faeron. Faydra also had a potion to enlarge herself, and used it to match the leader’s power.

After striking down the gnolls, there was some discussion about what to do with the freed goblin slaves. Eventually it was decided that they would be let go, but it was made quite clear that any attempt to return to this place would mean death at the hand of Faydra. The goblins took several gnoll corpses with them as food. The party then moved a small distance away for the battle, and made camp in a nearby location.

The next day’s travel was uneventful, they reached the small community surrounding the hunting lodge on Fangwood’s edge late in the evening. The community itself is quite small. Colin requests lodging and drink for the company, and is offered beds and locally distilled whiskey, in gallon jugs. Faydra wasn’t prepared for such strong spirits, and drinks heavily its not long before her and many of the locals are passed out.

The next morning is breakfast and discussion. It seems that the first trading caravan for the year and hunters for the hunting season are not expected for a week. They’re offered hospitality to stay, but Ahli prefers to continue. They hire a man to continue with them, and return to the lodge with a report if anything happens.

Session 4

After acquiring travel equipment, the group set out for an encampment of Nirmathi rangers. They agreed to avoid roads and go cross-country, this meant the trip would be roughly two full days.

Mid-afternoon of the first day they came across a gnoll hunting party. The gnolls attacked immediately. Corvin, Faeron, and Faydra all took injuries, but not beyond the party’s ability to manage. Alhi decided that tracking the gnoll’s back would be useful. Late evening they were within site of the gnoll campsite, and found gnolls are present.

Session 3

The group followed a map discovered on the assassin who attacked them after seeing the guard. Trudging through the sewer involved fighting off sewer rats and animals. As they got closer to the map’s marked location they came across a choker and risen corpses of its victims. This brought them to hidden underground camp.

Three more similarly outfitted assassins were in the camp. Combat was quick and decisive, and a search of them discovered that their tongues had also been cut. The room left them little more to go with. Beyond the head of Morvius and the bag containing the books he’d requested from the Knights of Ozem, they found only evidence of burned papers and food for another week.

They returned to the city’s surface, and met Sergeant Horatio Narsius of Lastwall. He collected the warding box from Tristam, and offered condolences and the service of Colin to continue the Morvius’s search.

The Murder in Skelt
Session 2

After discussing and looking over the scene of the murder. The four went to the guard house to make final statements and look over the body. There they found where Morvius and made way to his room. There they found his personal journal, spellbook, and travelling gear for a wilderness trek.

His journal mentioned that he’d been attacked previously while researching the possible location of the three missing Bloodstones of Arazni . He was trading a warding box for Lastwall’s books to continue his search. He already had information pointing to a set of ruins in the southern region of Fangwood Forrest. He also suspected that a group of necromancers and undead were headed into Fangwood to find it.

Tristram, being his overzealous self, wanted to head for the forest immediately. Clearer heads determined that he should handle getting the warding box to Lastwall first, and all agreed to meet up for the journey later that day.

When it seemed they were ready to begin, an assassin attacked. Fate seemed with the four as the initial attack failed, and the chase began. Faydra caught up the assailant. She was handling herself quite well when Faeron and Ahli joined in. The would-be assassin was down before the guard arrived. Statements were taken, and Ahli snuck off with a hand sketched map leading to a section of sewer.

During the investigation, Ahli and Faydra have begun to respect each other, and while no one truly expects great things out of Tristram, all have realized that he is an ally.

The Murder in Skelt
Session 1

Faydra came to Skelt after word that her teacher had been killed. She met Tristram at the Captain’s Helmet and he explained that he’d been sent by as an agent of Lastwall to trade something with Morvius.

When word of the murder reached him, he started his own investigation along side the poorly handled official one. Faydra wants to continue that investigation in the morning.

Faeron Seabreeze was also at the Helmet Between tavern girl gossip, and watching Tristram since his job as caravan guard ended, thought there might be a job opportunity, and followed them to the park the next morning.

Ahli Hutan was in the park, and had observed the item exchange, and following murder from a distance. When he saw Tristram return to investigate with Faydra, he also noticed Faeron following them. He confronted Faeron rather extravagantly. This brought the attention of Tristram and Faydra, and the four conversed about personal interest in the situation.

There is little to no trust between anyone at the moment.
