Notes from 2/26/19 - Save everyone, take 2 ..

Postby Caelesti » Tue Feb 26, 2019 9:47 pm

The party rested by the murky pool, recovering health and spells. They then continued on, marching along the north side of the very long pool until the ledge stopped at the upper edge of a chasm. There seemed no way to go but down.

Sedon, with spider climb, climbed down to a lower ledge. Eclipse turned into a spider, and Chip climbed on top her; the two followed Eclipse. Bony figures rose up from the depths and queried the party about their presence. Sedon communicated with the figures and convinced them that the party had need to be there. The figures transported the party across the chasm to a lit cave.

Sedon communicated telepathically with the human priestess in the cave, explaining the party's history and time jump. The figure turned into a large frog and bit Sedon. Sedon told the others not to interfere. The priestess turned back into her human form. Sedon then told the others that they were on the proper path.

The skeletons transported the party to another cave deeper into the chasm. The cave was unnaturally dark, and even those with darkvision could not see. A huge drow-like figure appeared ahead and beconned the party forward. She asked each of the party members why they were there, and Shar was not pleased with the responses. None-the-less, she said she would send the party back with a quest, telling the party that the first of the dieties that the Hunger destroyed was Jubilex, and that the party was to ensure that that didn't happen, as itt was the beginning of the end. Sedon then told the party that he had once received a note from his daughter that read, "Father, seek me before I have killed my first divinity. Before the taste of power."

Shar broke the amulet that kept Eclipse stuck in dwarven form, and she turned back into her [happy] tiefling form. She told her to keep the broken hammer. She told Fuma to keep the cloak. She asked Chip what he had from the world; he named some items, including a holy symbol of Shar, and she had him put that on.

The room got dark, and the party 'woke up' outside the cave back in the time most of the party came from. After much conversation about where and when they were, the party headed to the cave.

The cave smelled of gnolls, but nobody was home. There were signs of battle a few days old.

Sedon sat down to consult his book. He asked where to find his daughter Arabel. The response was, "In the new warlord's citadel. Leading the dying race." Eclipse recalled that the orcs were one of the first races affected by The Hunger.

I'd look over the logs from 4/17-6/17 to recall exactly what is happening in "the present."

> Could we plan here before the next session?

Mercy has no knowledge of this time. She can track the attackers of the fort, or maybe help look for orc-spoor in general. Otherwise, she will defer to the party's needs.

Is the goal to find Sedon's daughter first? Or protect the god first?

More a demon lord than a god proper.
