Notes from 8/13/15 - To Grandmothers house we go!

Postby Caelesti » Thu Aug 13, 2015 9:41 pm

Carric convinced Siobhan to travel with the party to visit Talon's grandmother the silver dragon. The party then teleported back to their campsite near the mountains. With spells cast to aid their way, the party located the crash site of the object from the bane moon. The large egglike space capsule was split open, and fluids had leaked out. Torin approached the egg, touched it, and cast Discern Location to help locate the pilot; he got no reading.

Yoshi searched capsule, determing that the capsule controls were sized for illithid hands. Carric searched for tracks, but couldn't follow them far, as too much time and weather had gone by. Carric then turned into an eagle and flew around to locate inhabited areas.

Carric conversed with an eagle about the crash. It reported that the creature simply disappeared.

With the failure to find the illithid, the party continued the journey to Talon's grandmother's home. Things seemed familiar to Talon, and she led the way to the dragon's cave. In lieu of simply entering Talon and Siobhan called out. A tall woman with silver hair appeared within the cave. She greeted Talon and Siobhan, and their companions. Torin asked if she saw any illithids; she said no.

When asked about stuff happening in the area, grandmother asked for the party's help. After Yoshi stated that the party had an urgent mission, she pulled some of the party aside to speak privately. Grandma reported that Talon's aunt layed a clutch of three eggs a year ago, and the eggs were stolen. Grandma suspected cloud giants.

Grandma inquired about the party's mission, and heard about the egglike space craft with its illithid pilot, as well as hearing about the first such illithid space craft and subsequent problems.

Grandma had room in her cave for the party to spend the night. In the morning, Torin and Yoshi teleported back to the temple of Arianrhod to report on the new arrival from the Bane Moon. The priestess asked if they would teleport back to the space craft with some of their priests so they could investigate. They left right away.

Torin and Yoshi later returned to the cave. Carric looked for tracks near the egg location and found signs of cloud giants.

I was kinda surprised you determined we'd need an extra Bard on this adventure... now we have extra fighter and cleric power.

I didn't "determine you needed an extra bard". I gave you an adventure hook that involved Talon's relatives - of which Siobhan is one. It's not like you've been sending Tanith weekly letters, talking about your adventures, so she'd know about your companions, eh?

Tanith's original idea was that Talon and Siobhan would be a suitable diplomatic (or espionage) team who could scout out the situation and sweet talk their way out of any difficulty and report back to allow a followup "egg extraction" expedition, if appropriate. You just happened to bring along a group of other adventurers with you, and it might end up being scouting + egg extraction all in one trip.
