The Undead Tower

Gracefire Part II

Previously…

The next day, our hardy adventurers found that the werewolves were nowhere to be seen. Doomhammer was tasked with creating a silver weapon from the silver that was found after investigating the town. Adran, Olamina, and Ra decided to investigate the merchant section of town. While in the tavern, Olamina attempted to relieve the zombie-like bar maiden of her strongbox, which resulted in Adran getting bitten by the saucy (un-dead?) wench.

Once the three obliterated her and opened the box, a mere 5 gold pieces were found, which Ra later spent when he found an ancient, magical pac-man arcade machine. All in all, money well spent.

As the sun neared the horizon, the group decided to approach the tower once more, discovering a blood-covered necromancer at the top of the stairs. After a harried flight from, you guessed it, more werewolves, the adventurers ran into the tower and up the stairs. As the door closed behind them, they all suddenly realized they were in a pitch-black room.

Gracefire
Shit! Run!!!

The group decided to go back to the inn after retrieving the 2nd piece of the map. Ra ended up sleeping with the transvestite barkeep and gained a +1 check to all defenses for the next encounter due to his resulting numbness from the unpleasantness of the night.

After learning of the troubles in Gracefire, the team set out to determine the cause of the lack of news from the small village. After encountering unnatural townsfolk with black blood, and incredible regenerating capabilities (and destroying 3 of them), night descends. The decision is made to flee to an abandoned stone structure and barricade the door with a table, while two werewolves howl outside. One night passes.

What’s next for our courageous, powerful, and don’t forget, sexy team?

Stay tuned for next week’s session!

Next Session: October 11th @ 1:30 pm

Session Recap
Short circuit

Last session the group (B.A.A.D.R.) came across Tal Lorvas as they tried to retrieve another piece of the map. Unfortunately, Lorvas was not alone. However, B.A.A.D.R. predictably prevailed once more. (I mean, was there really any doubt?) After destroying Lorvas and his Zombie Hulk they encountered the shade of a once powerful tiefling sorceress, who only identified herself as a Ravenblood, one of Olamina’s distant ancestors.

Having been captured and her essence used for Lorvas’ sinister plan to create a great and terrible artifact, Ravenblood begged the group to set her free so she could once more be at peace. In return, she promised to reveal the next section of the map. As Doomhammer and Olamina strove to destroy the machinery, Ra remained… preoccupied. Once the contraption was destroyed a strong wave of necrotic energy rippled out from the core of the machinery, causing Adran to become increasingly nautious.

After the destruction, the bottom portion of the map was revealed, though who “Ravenblood” actually was remains a mystery. The necrotic energies seem to undoubtedly indicate that she was not actually who she claimed to be.

Next Session: October 4th @ 1:30 pm.
