Under the Stars

Post by Tattered Rags » Sat Mar 24, 2018 4:40 am

I've been planning this off-and-on for awhile, and I finally got together a group of people to play.

Adventure Summaries

The heroes are members of the Stalwart Stones, a group of Adepts tasked with protecting Kaer Ungada. However, they still have yet to complete their final initiation rites to become full-fledged First Circle Adepts of their respective Disciplines. Now is the final quest to determine if they are worthy.

Sickness is spreading throughout Kaer Ungada, which can happen in a closed-up environment like an underground city. This one has been running its course for at least a month now, but it hasn't been terrible. However, a new illness has cropped up, one that raises more dire concerns. Can Sean Shamsara, Elven Scout and cousin to the current Elder of the Kaer; Vyktor Wyvernjack, human Wizard; and quiet Boris Hillmens, Troll Warrior, find the cause and maybe the cure?
Ungada's Malady

One player was unable to attend the first session, so I ran a solo adventure for his Windling Weaponsmith, Valteri Tomser. The light quartz in the ceiling are going out in the Kaer, but one man has an idea how to stop this from happening.

This looks like a start to a great campaign! I like that website, too.

Thanks!

Scabard is pretty neat, but it can be difficult to navigate at times despite the fact that the whole point is how easy it links things together. For example, all the links in the text happened automatically! Then the connections you can make on the side of the page auto-connect back from the other page. However, basic structure is under just a handful of pages, which means there's a ton of things all together.

Oh, and I recorded the audio and may do a podcast. So look for that in the future.

One player down, so I cardboarded him in. Unfortunately, he also got the killing blow on an accidentally too easy encounter.
It is time to celebrate! The Festival of Kar'lien is upon Kaer Ungada, and the Stalwart Stones welcome four new adepts into their fold. But things are not well in the Kaer. Sickness still afflicts the people, and something more sinister stirs.

Last time ended on a cliffhanger as a ghoul lunged for the heroes. Quickly dealt with, the rest of the time is spent investigating, questioning, and doubting. Who is responsible for the Horror constructs attacking the Kaer?

And now the heroes continue their checks of the Kaer wards only to run into a minor scuffle. That's what a fight between two guards and a ghoul and a cadaverman is called, right?

Fully rested, the newest Stalwart Stones venture out to capture a toxic blight in the hope it can be studied to find a cure.

Glad to get some feedback, and you're welcome!

When I update Blighty Hill with more prose, I'll comment over here.

Oh, and are you reading Sean Shamshara's journal entries? There will be a link in the connections section of each event that has a journal entry (or you can go to the journal list page linked from the adventure summaries, which I added to the first post in this thread).
