It was decided the next game will be the Monday 16th December .
I thought I would reiterate the main leads from the session 3 weeks ago and beyond
a) The map showing the hell storm flume
b) The mention of Xin shalast
c) The mention of Karzoug
d) The 3rd voice and the assassin sent after the other group of pathfinders ? The 3 keys ?
e) The words of the drow priestess – The old gods are getting stronger while the younger gods suffer – the power is waning , if you are unsure contact them ?
f) Finally below Sandpoint , you found a ladder going which joined a tunnel going deep into the ground , but is angled out to sea, Corik was down there alone , he sensed something terrible , ancient and an evil so potent it nearly knocked him senseless.
Back to game .
Bris and Eando stand against 6 ancient black monks. With Corik and Durgen on the top level of the tower they look out into the night sky , a sense of dread fills the pit of their stomachs , where there had been hundred of giants , now thousands fill the plateau
The bandages burst open on the monks and the sarcophagi explode , floating before them are 6 drow, with red eyes and huge white manes of hair, they carry wicked serrated blades and wear thick ancient robes, the lead and injured monk raises a hand and a long finger extends , pointing at Bris , A voice in Bris`s head says ” You are needed undead hunter, but know this , you are an enemy of our house now and marked, many of our libraries and houses existed at the time of star fall , our house is one of the strongest , but we have enemy’s all around , and other houses trying to gain influence power ,Know this human and if you survive , retribution will be exacted ….!” With the other hand he produces a ring , which Bris takes.
With that the monks Disappear , but you the voice of 2 Frost Giants below, “ Mokmurian said unleash the pack on the humans “
“, so be it,” answers the other and with that you hear the clinking of chains , and deep low growl .
Corik and Durgen run down the stairs and join the brave companions “look out the windows “they say , as everyone looks . The voice of mokmurian booms out , and fills every nook and cranny of the tower , the force of will is a power to behold. The night sky seems full of stars , you see the robed and hunched figure of Mokmurian on a plinth floating above Jorgenfist , he is seated on a huge gold throne.
“The time has come , for us to reclaim our place , Golarion was once ours until Earthfall , Our rulers were the Runelords and powerful was our realm , we fought across time and space our armies were fear, we were elite! but look at us now , these insects , humans, elves, dwarves , drow and duergar, now rule!”
“what about the Halflings !” someone yells from the crowd
“Yes” laughs Mokmurian “even the Halflings , will know our power , reinforcements have been called in from our giant Brethren , From the Ice in the north, the swamps in the south , the deserts in the east and forest in the west and of course the darker places no one likes to mention, they will know our power , they will know our might , “.
The crowd return a roar !
“A voice screams out “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, please my son you must not, I see only Darkness in your future !”
With a deep rich laugh , Mokmurian looks down, ”Mother “he says in a gentle voice , “Forever wise”
He turns to the massed throng , “ Shall it be Peace or War “ he shouts
“WAR” comes the return
“ Shall it be Peace or War “ he shouts again
“WAR “ is the returning cry
“See mother , you are not so wise !”
With that the 4 lamia Priestess holding her throw Conna over the battlements, she plummets to the ground , with a sickening crunch!
“But we are not alone in our fight, allies have i secured , the creatures of the core , will rise nightly “
As if on Cue , a small demons made of fire, demons made of barbed wood and huge stone demons arise from the ground
“These allies will attack the weaker races , but they do not touch us , see how they move amongst us ? Have no fear “
“Lastly an old Ally of Mokmurain is here to aid me once again , he found me at deaths door in Xin Shalast, he helped me , he taught me , He is known as the Vorel the original Skinshaw man , know this my brethren , he commands as much respect as i do !”
A skeletal figure appears next to mokmurian , Dressed in thick black furs, he wears armour crafted from black dragon scales , a helm fashioned from some black metal from ages past in the shape of a dragons head . His great sword crafted from the same black metal is inlaid with many small runes that shine blue in the night sky , he also carries a small sceptre with a large blue stone on the end .
A deep hollow Voice booms out from behind the mask “Arise my children , let Mokmurian and his brothers and sisters , know you ! Let them know the night time is ours and theirs , and the lesser races shall be wiped from the face of the earth!”
With that thousands of undead, arise from the ground , skeletal giants from age past , giant zombies over 40ft in height and dark creatures arise, from an ancient time of giants “
“These are your ancient brothers who were buried here thousands of years ago” He laughs .
“Now” he Mokmurian ,” let these insects feel our ire!. ONWARD”
With that 2 ancient black dragons appear in the night sky , and Mokmurian and his undead cohort , mount the dragons and the whole army starts to pack up for war, very slowly . As Bris looks out he does spot a shadowy figure in the corner of the fort , but he can`t make it out in the gloom , maybe another faction in this game?
A sense of dread and hopelessness spread out amongst the group , Durgen who has vowed to slay his undead bloodline , but this….
There is no time to dwell , Corik using magics to send a short message to Shallelu explaining the situation , she answers in here non emotional way . The characters turn to see 6 hounds of another world , a cross between a dog and a lizard, the are hunting dog used by the Denizens of leng , they mark their prey! Either by bite or other unnatural ways .
The fight is long but the characters survive, but what now , so many options …… Its either leave the way the came ? Exploring the library ? getting some allied help but whom ? or numerous other things , War is here and an army only seen tens of thousands of years ago marches to destroy the land ……………………
