Threat to the Feywild

Jessiff

As we headed north, we came across the small town of Jessiff. It was starting to get dark and there was no one outside. We identified the largest building and stepped inside. We were greeted by several of the locals, one of whom identified himself as the recognized leader of Jessiff. We talked to him breifly about the priestess and he told us she had indeed been there but he had not seen her for several days. He advised us not to venture out at night and invited us to stay the night in the Town Hall.

We were awoken by screams coming from outside. We stepped outside and were met by Kobolds and large rats trying to drag villagers away into the darkness. Faolan did some crazy acrobatics up on the roofs of some of the buildings. Saved a kid. etc.

kill em all

In the morning, we continue north and find a cave.

To Avramdul

With Jarnkel deceased, we find several pages written in a strange script. With nothing left for us to do in the manor, we head back to Hillcrest where Yohan spends most of the evening deciphering the document.

At day break, Yohan shares what appears to be pages from Jarnkel’s diary. Within the pages there is mention of a priestess in the city of Avramdul. After a short discussion, we all agree that heading to Avramdul is our best course of action and set out immediately.

As we enter the city gates, we become witness to a huge celebration taking place. There is excessive amounts of merrymaking and Elyria pulls one of the wornsfolk aside to inquire about the commotion. Apparently the governor of Avramdul has just been married and everyone is celebrating.

We make our way to one of the inns and procure for ourselves a few drinks and a night’s rest. In the morning, we make our way to the temple of the Raven Queen to seek out the priestess only to discover she is currently on a mission to the north. We once again, set out.

Necromancer's Manor (part 2)

After ensuring the safety of Hillcrest, we once again set out to face the Necromancer at his manor in the woods.

As we approached, everything looked normal, no undead lurking about. We approached the Manor slowly and when we reached the door, a spectral figure appeared, taunting us to enter. Knowing we were entering a trap, Faolan chose to enter the window into the study, rather than go through the front doors with the rest of his party.

Encounter several undead from the multiple rooms. Elyria nearly dies.

We then proceeded downstairs and again encountered several undead from 2 separate rooms. We managed to make quick work of them and proceeded on.

Traps!

Upon rounding the corner, we were entered a large room with what appeared to be remnants of a cathedral. There were all sorts of ritual markings on the walls and floor to which Yohan immediately recognized as having to do with raising the dead.

The Necromancer laughed and sent about 15 undead in our direction.

Yohan cast Freezing cloud and dispatched most of them. The rest of the party cleaned up the rest of the undead that Yohan left behind.

The Necromancer, seeing lots of his minions fall at the hands of a wizard, rose 2 more zombies in front of him.

Yohan, not to be outdone, conjured a flaming sphere in front of the Necromancer that started dishing out damage to everything next to it.

Eventually, the undead were disposed of and Faolan attacked with a fatal blow to the necromancer.

We looted his body, retrieving Bloodthread robes which the party gave to Yohan, a wand of Burning Hands which Merric claimed, as well as a key. We presumed the key would unlock the door at the back of the room, but before we could discuss it, Faolan stole the key from Merric and unlocked the door. Inside we found the corpse of the Eladrin wizard we came here to rescue.

Spider cave

Merric returns to Hillcrest with a human fighter named Aeson Darton who helped defend the halfling village from goblins.

Merric, upon seeing the slayed halflings who defended Hillcrest from the Gobling horde, wishes to return his dead kinsmen back to their village in order to bury them properly. We loaded up the cart the haflings had brought with them and set out towards the halfling village, leaving Elyria behind to aid in the recovery of the wounded.

On our way we heard sounds of a crying boy and approached with caution and discovered it was indeed a small child. We gathered from the boy that his name was David and that his father had been kidnapped by a few white skinny monster things. Aeson, removing his armor, returned the boy back to the village in order to ensure his safety. Having returned, we debated where to go next. We could try to retrieve the boys father, or continue returning the dead halflings back to their village.

We decided to split up. Merric and Aeson would return the Halflings to their village while Faolan and Yohan tried to find the cave where David’s father presumably was taken.

Having found the cave and successfully sneaking past a few undead skeletons, Faolan and Yohan were about to enter the cave when Merric and Aeson showed up, alerting the Undead of our presence. We quickly felled the undead and proceeded into the cave.

It was dark and Yohan was pleased to finally be able to cast Light, illuminating most ot the interior of the cave. As we proceeded forward and moved the light further into the cave, we encountered several large rats and another skeleton.

Yohan’s Flaming Burst took out the rats, and we then proceeded forward, through a narrow passage. When we moved the light into the next room, Faolan noticed a huge spider which gave us a bit of trouble. Yohan, moved away from the spider, moving the light beside him at which point, he saw yet another spider.

Eventually, we managed to dispose of both spiders. In the interior of the cave, we came upon a corpse, which we all assumed was David’s father. In another room of the cave, there was a spring that gave everyone 5 temporary HP and we attempted to revive the human corpse by submerging him in the spring…to no avail.

Goblin Horde

With Merric visiting his kinsmen in the forest someplace, Faolan, Elyria, and Yohan are enjoying a relaxing evening in the Tavern when Berringer comes stumbling in, bloody and with 2 arrows sticking out his back…

Faolan rushed to the door and sees some shadowy fidures on the edge of town. He yells to them, but they scurry off into the darkness.

The three adventurers make chase into the forest and come upon a small halfling encampment. yohan is all to eager to burn it to the ground, but Elyria is the level headed one and suggests speaking to them in an attempt to gain information.
