Seeking Knowledge of Storms and Bidding Farewell to a Fallen
Chapter Two: Secret Cave Rendezvous

Session Recap

The party were summoned and escorted to the town leaders to discuss the events that took place the other night and to find out what happened in Galure’s Inn.

Town Leaders: Ma’Dur, Dilkuda of Jidorc & Mede

Upon getting the trio’s side of the story, and Chak Chak sharing he was not part of the ruckus, the members were dismissed. On their way out they saw Galure and Manda Lisorius waiting outside the room they had exited. Both were summoned as the leaders of the town wanted to get to the bottom of the skirmish and resolve it before the town festival that would be held the next day, as well as in advance of the Green Leaves Caravan (outlined below) that was scheduled to arrive later on the 14th of Orin.

The party broke after the meeting with Chak Chak returning to Ermel’s shop; and Loss and Aptos heading to the the Scarlet Pipe (Inn/Tavern owned by Galure).

@ Scarlet Pipe; songs were sung about Loss the Crocodile Slayer; Drinks were drank, and discussions of Desna took place between Cola Lisornius about the worship of old gods and current beliefs. This conversation seemed to sway Cola into being open to discussing Desna more and with folks in the town.

@ Ermel’s Lab; A meeting between Ermel and Otolir were heared by Chak Chak. Upon learning that there could be dangers, or perhaps a larger concern @ the caves within the town, Chak Chak stated he would gather the troops and meet with Otolir back at his shop, the Smithy known as Metal and Lace.

When the party met up, they gathered supplies and a loan of weapons and went in search of adventure, and missing children. They found that the guards that were tasked with closing up the caves to prevent folks going missing or die as a result of the old caves, had done a poor job of “boarding” the mouth of the cave up.


  • Day 5: “Blasted” Kobolds

Upon entering the “Old Caves” party opted to map the locations and mark interesting details within. They traveled 1 hour and 30 minutes and came into contact with some Scaled Gnomes.

Day Three: Crocodile Attack

  • As the party moved towards the Net they took care to stay away from the deep waters and used the land to their advantage.
  • Halfway towards the net, the party heard a thrashing in the water behind them. They turned to see a frog being catapulted into the air as a crocodile.
  • Loss and A moved to attack and after a few blessed moments, the crocodile met it’s match
  • Chak-Chak moved forward to fetch the net, as he got closer he found a croc stuck in his net. Fighting to a stalemate the croc broke free of the net (and the net itself) after diving into the water.
  • Loss dove in (after catching up to Chak-Chak) and saw that a swamp lake was over 40 feet deep and some Cocs in the water. Along with the Croc, there were bones of a riding lizard and rider.
  • After using his grappling hook and rope to catch the net from the bottom of the lake, Loss did not catch the crocodile, but instead hooked a waterlogged backpack (poor shape) from near the rider.
Critical Awesome

An epic story is told in the tavern as Loss the Crocodile Slayer tells of a battle where he kicked a 40 lb crocodile into the air and spinning through the air he slashed the crocodile decapitating it.

Day Four: Headed Home with a purpose

  • During the night watch, a storm from the South East caused large concerns about the safety of staying still.
  • Aptos concluded that there were at least 5 areas of intense magic, the storm (unnatural) and 2 closer (to the party) and 2 more closer to the center of the storm.
  • The party met with a scouting party from the Fort and headed home.

Let's all be heroes!
Chapter One: Rise of the Heroes

Session Recap

Our heroes ( Chak-Chak, Aptos, & Loss) made their way to the Frog Fens.

  • Chak-Chak was sent sent to fetch Frog Livers, and frogs alive if possible, by his mentor Ermel (the Gnome Alchemist).
  • Aptos overheard Galure the owner of the Scarlet Pipe (Inn/Tavern) talking about seeking new food sources; Frog Legs and Crocodile meat.
  • Loss is scheduled to escorted people that leave the town. Upon hearing he would be heading into the Fens, Valaen Icebreaker asked Loss to be on the look out for any signs of Chet (the hobgoblin) that had been missing.

Day One: Getting the band together

  • Each member had a reason to travel to the fens
  • A party broke out as the Honey Mead wine was uncasked

Day Two: Monkey Business

  • The party came across some monkeys crossing their path.
  • Loss attempted to communicate with the monkeys before continuing on.
  • After setting up camp, during the night watch one of the monkeys tip-toed up to the camp and took Aptos’s backpack and attempted to flee.
  • A ruckus took place and the sport of Monkey Punting was born.

Day Three: Frogs and Crocodile

  • The party sought out ways to fish for frogs and worked on their MacGyver skills.
  • A Lizzard that caught a Web Fish, was caught by Aptos.
  • Chet’s corpse was found.

CSI Results:

  • Chet was determined to have been killed by a blow to the head.
  • He also had a partially carved arcane symbol into his flesh (a Z with a circle in the middle of the / part of the Z).
  • He had been dead for at least 3-4 weeks.

The party moved Chet’s body to the campsite they slept in. They used the cape and some larger rocks to weigh down the cape and prevent scavengers from doing more damage. They went back into the Fens to collect some more frogs and possibly find the crocodile to help make some more money.
