Vassan Assassinations Part 10

After the disaster at Fellworth Keep, the party decides to go back to House Trayven and tell them what happened. They’ll give us some information in exchange for a Dragonscale Shield. We find out there is an elf in town looking for a Priest of Orcus that has been seen wearing a Warlock Knights ring. We find the elf at the Haunted Pier Inn. He is a wood elf with a very nice crossbow that catches our eye. He is Ioldor and tells us he’s looking for the priest, Garvin, to exact revenge for the murder of his own wife. The Church of Orcus is working with the Warlock Knights. Ioldor will join us and we’ll find Garvin. Ioldor knows of a portal to the Temple of Orcus. We’ll try ot find out if Garvin is the Warlock Knight Council member we’ve been looking for and which trading house he’s associated with. Then we will kill him. We find out the portal goes to the abyss. We go anyway. This is a nice place to be. We immediately encounter Rot Harbingers. As we’re fighting them, Garvin shows up. He flees again pretty quickly through the portal he came from. We kill the things then follow Garvin. We pop up in an icy room with him and a bunch of other stuff. We kill his things and he runs off. Short rest and we’ll follow him.
No XP awarded correct? (Jeff has a google doc w/ all our stats, dailies, etc.)

Vassan Assassinations Part 8

In the 50th session of the campaign, the party arrives at Dead Man’s Cross. In attempting the ritual (skill check) our efforts bring forth a balor. We fight him off until Silfen and Aurun are able to successfully open the portal. We run through the portal and are in the center of the throne room of House Traven. Victus Traven, her guards and advisors, and Maralur Traven, the Lord we didn’t even know about are all there. We quickly try to ferret out the Warlock Knight council member. They don’t seem to know anything about the Warlock Knights or the politics of Damara and Vassa. We begin to suspect that Vargas was wrong or was lying. We strike a deal with Lord Maralur to find out what house is working with the Warlock Knights. We will give him the location of Vargas just to get out of here and some gold or favors to get the information from him. We’ll help kill Vargas and destroy his phylactery, we’ll exile Elika to save her and give a writ of introduction to our lords to help him establish some business. He’ll try to get us the information for the price of a 13th level item. One of his lieutenants will come with us, Karth. We’ll head out now. Gain 3500 XP for a total of 96,850.

Vassan Assassinations Part 7

In our continuing effort to take down House Trayven, who we believe to be working with the Warlock Knights, we have cleared out the ruin of Fellwroth Keep at the behest of Vargas Fellwroth. In the ruin we find a girl named Eleka Fellwroth in a cell. She claims to be a descendant of the house and came here looking for family artifacts. We take her back with us to meet Vargas. They do not know of each other but she stays and discusses their family’s history as we head off to the undercity to a location where many members of House Fellwroth died during the Severing. We are here to retrieve an artifact that will help us in our quest – a magical shield. We find the old house and some undead guarding it. We defeat them and retrieve the Dragonscale Shield (level 19; Aurun is holding onto it). Upon returning to Vargas, he tells us that the shield will allow us to perform a ritual and open a portal to the throne room of House Traven. This ritual must be performed at Dead Man’s Cross – an intersection of 5 roads outside of Gloomwrought where people tend to get pulled into the Shadowfell. This is a dangerous ritual that kills most who attempt it. On our way to Dead Man’s Cross, we encounter a death giant and 2 night walkers. Silfen utters the expletive of his people, “Dicktits!” We defeat them, travel on and rest.
End Session with 5000 XP awarded, for a total of 93,350.
