Returning to town found Henry stronger and more fortified with his lifesblood returned thanks to MackeeD the illustrious priest of Erastil and some well needed rest. The three of us, Cleave included returned to town leaving Nareed and Nokism to brave the wilderness for a few more days. The new library “Obsidian Portal” in town was a welcome improvement.
Upon returning, Henry went straight to “The Laughing Vagabond” to eat and celebrate his return to a safer place, compared to the dungeon and cliff hanging realm he had been whiile outside the walls of Buovere. Meanwhile MackeeD and Cleave returned the Overseer’s dog neck ring to him and his family. By the time MackeeD and Cleave returned to the Tavern there was a large crowd listening to tales of adventure. During this time we discussed conscripting work to build and own an Inn as well as a Temple of Erastil.
In time, the hunters came back to town screaming like teenaged humans with a mere 3 Kobold zombies chasing them. They had been hunting to the East. We tidied up their mess, while the head of Cleave became our beacon we sustained considerable injuries and then found our way to the center of town.
Near the tavern there was a woman crying about having lost 5 children and they were last seen outside the city! Cleave, glowing, lead the charge out of the gates where we found the kids had left clear signs of a scuffle but, before we could go on we were under attack by Elvin Gouls attacking us from the West! Elves to the West, Kobolds to the East! I was soundly attacked clearly evading the claw attacks but the bite of the Ghoul got me and PARALYSED me! I was potentially a Ghoul’s dinner! Cleave saved the day dispatching of both in moments and my health restored with time and more blessings of Erastil. Cleave’s head had stopped glowing and now his sword was alight!
We rested a night and followed the tracks some more and eventually found the Kobold Lair that Cleave knows all to well as that also of the Gelatinous Cube home. Guarding the door was 6 Kobolds. We slew 4 and 2 became our friends. Their names: Kibo & Jardreb and work for an opposing tribe. They advised us that this other tribe took the “pink skinned blood bags down below” They praised Cleave as the “Grand Chop Chop” and myself as the “Grand Snnakey Smooth”. They warned us of “The floating armour of death” and told us that “the Priest Kardromak” is on level 2. It also seemed that “the Chief Jaker Jak” is there too along with his consort, “Vrigm”
Leaving the entry room we then found a way down that had a red hot bottom. We left this thinking it to be too hot to handle. We then found a dead body of a Kobold being eaten by dire rats which then attacked us, Cleave killed them and we found a note which on the dead kobold which advised us of:
- Secret of Dwarves should remain below ground
- Shhoskar, the Dwarven god of Pain and toil is bad to Kobolds
- Martin the Kobold priest is lost (dead)
- Kimerik a Kobold is lost (dead)
We then found a double door which Cleave opened and entered and set off a trap which closed the doors and two Zuargouilles attacked him. With the intervention of Erastil Cleave was preserved and in so doing we will all continue to do the great works for the town.
- Perhaps we should suggest to our Overseer that we need to guard this dwarven ruin as it has Obsidian which is necessary to make undead and the Kobolds will keep sending attacks to us if we don’t stop or slow their access to this stone.
