Rise of the Runelords
December 13th, 2015
Our Heroes decided to make a quick stop at Sandpoint before returning to Jorgenfist. While the rest of the group had some magical items made, Reiner took Malia aside to explain to her why he wished for her to stay here in Sandpoint. Malia fought it at first, but did see the merit in Reiner's words about staying safe, and protecting the one town that meant the most to the group. He entrusted her with the safety of the town, and left her with Algren at the group's manor. After the group rested, they teleported back to Jorgenfist.

The stone doors still showed to be closed, but paranoia got the best of the group, as they spent magic spells to prepare themselves for battle. After they prepared, they worked together to pull open the doors to find a long, empty hallway that lead downward. They jogged at a nice pace down the hallway in hopes to find the library, and maybe even Mokmurian.

As the hallway continued, more stonework began to show in this area. Dov immediately recognized it as Thasillionan stonework, similar to what he saw in Thistletop. When the group reached an intersection, he began to notice that the walls had no angles to them; corners of the wall, and the connections from wall to ceiling and wall to floor were rounded out. This differed from Thistletop, and was very strange to see.

After deciding to go to the right, the party discovered a dark room that only one side of the room was lit on. When Nevik poked his head in to see what might be around the corner, he instantly shrank in size. Worse, the room seem to stretch and not keep exact dimensions, which nauseated Nevik. While vomiting and dealing with that, it was clear to the rest of the group that something in this room wasn't right.

Once Nevik got his bearings back, he stepped fully into the room to scope out the room. When he did, two boulders launched at him, narrowly missing him on both sides. These boulders were now roughly the same size as him in his reduced form. Naolexa cast dancing lights and ordered them to float down out and down the room, which illuminated the two giants in the room.

These giants, however, looked very different. Their muscles bulged, skin incredibly tight around them. They also had strange scars on their skin, which showed to be in the shape of runes seen before with the sihedron. Nevik and Yama jumping into action, they quickly took care of these foes while the rest of the party either dealt with the reduced size or the nauseating effect in the room. Aferwards, Nevik was able to identify the magical trap in the room and disable it, which allowed for the rest of the party to pass through unharmed. The group continued through doors to the south.

Yama kicked the doors in and rushed ahead of the group, eager to see what was in store for them. The next room encountered showed to have a white smoke flow out of a cauldron in the near-center of the room. The smoke filled most of the room, however seemed different from your normal mist spells.

Next to the cauldron was a stone golem, who stood motionless despite the heroes in the hallway in plain view. Yama attempted to get the sneak on her, but was unsuccessful in doing so. Reiner went in, stepping into the smoke. The smoke reared up and harmed him badly, temporarily blinding him and making him sick to his stomach again. The stone giant got some clean blows into Reiner before he was able to get away. Nevik attempting to jump over all of the mist and land on the golem, but sadly over shot the jump and landed on the other side of the golem. He, however, was unaffected by the mist. Yama rushed in as well, unaffected by the smoke, after attempting to throw daggers at the golem. Naolexa tried to freeze it, however the magic was ineffective.

A powerful stone golem is hampering our heroes, as they try to deal with it's immunity to magic and reinforced stone that can resist hits. How will our heroes fair?

The party decided to return to the hostages in Conna's Altar room after scooping up all of the leftover equipment from their fallen foes. Despite being very overloaded, Philip, Naolexa, and Dov got everyone in the safety of Magnimar. They sold their spoils, and took a few days to themselves to gear up, wind down, and prepare themselves mentally for what was ahead.

Greyfeather, Ameiko, and Shayliss all returned to Sandpoint unharmed, confirmed by a messenger raven to and from Sandpoint. The town of Sandpoint is recovering from the attack while the heroes are away, and luckily, Balor has reported that nothing major has happened since the raid. it's been luckily very quiet.

After visiting not only the markets, but the newly discovered black markets in the underbelly of Magnimar, our Heroes were able to find a few new fun toys to use against their foes. They returned to Jorgenfist at the dawn of the third day, and are ready for a fight.

What waits behind the stone door for our Heroes?

Rise of the Runelords
November 15th, 2015 and November 29th, 2015
This new room the heroes stood was of different nature then the hallway they were just in. The walls were of stone, the ceiling rose so high it disappeared into the darkness, and two massive columns stood on either side of a massive stone door adorned with a sihedron. The ground rumbled for a moment, as an oread rose from the floor near the door. The ogre king leaped down from the sky to meet the heroes toe to toe, while from behind two ogre barbarians followed in suit with wolves. Things were going to get sticky fast.

Yama went to approach the oread, but found himself quickly hindered by unseen complications on the floor. He backed himself up, and then leaped as far as he could towards the oread in attempts to bypass the unknown hindrance. He succeeded in landing close enough to her, and managed to wound her. Naolexa followed up with a spell to blind her, which caused her to preemtively use a spell against Yama. She grabbed a sapphire out of a particular pocket on her person, and unleashed a powerful cold spell that hit Yama hard. Despite being blind, she was still able to unleash the same spell afflicting her against Yama, as she blinded him as well. The two attempted to trade blows and spells, and also escape from each other as best as possible. The eventually found themselves relying on a column to rotate around, but Yama accidentally hit one of the columns hard with his daggers, causing a crack on his dagger.

Meanwhile, the others dealt with a heavy onslaught from the ogres. The Ogre King has summoned not only a floating battleaxe to swipe and pester Philip, and a succubus to deal with Vincent and Valtyra. The succubus succeeded in dominating Vincent's mind, as she then used his blade against Philip and his allies. He eventually got control of his mind, but not until some attacks had already occurred against his friends. Philip managed to get a polymorph spell off on the ogre king, which turned him into a harmless otter. Unfortunately, he was able to stave of the section of the magic that prevent him from losing his mental capacities, so now a otter king terrorized the heroes. He lost sight of what he was for a moment, as he rushed up to Naolexa to attempt a strike. This failed miserably, as he ended up not being used to his new limbs just yet, narrowly missing Naolexa.

They eventually were able to kill off the succubus, a wolf, and one of the barbarians when Naolexa found herself in trouble. She was pinned inbetween the now otter king, one of the barbarians, and the succubus. With no where to run, the barbarian crashed his greataxe against her. She fell to the ground for a moment, but something activated inside her as she was lifted up, and set on the ground as if she had not taken as much damage. When the otter king retreated to attempt to dispel the polymorph effect, Shalelu followed up with arrows that pelted the ogre that struck Naolexa down. This provided an opportunity for Naolexa to Dimension Door to escape, giving her a chance to heal. Philip followed as well, as he was bruised up by the ogre king's spiritual weapon and the attacks from Vincent.

The ogre king dispelled the polymorph effect, while the oread, Erdu, dispelled the blinding effect. Now able to see, Yama had disspeared completely from sight. She used the chance to heal a little bit, before attempting to dominate Dov, who had mysteriously appeared. This failed, and Dov encased her in a icy prison in retaliation.

The ogre king and the barbarians eventually fell, Erdu succumbed to the icy grasp of Dov's spell, and healing was distributed all around. The heroes looted what they could, and decided to camp in this large room for the night to rest and recover before proceeded. Using the staff again, Philip sealed off the way they came from to prevent any surprises from behind them. They intended to use Naolexa's and Dov's magical items to keep the amount of sleep needed to a minimum, so they would not tarry in this task any further.

Before them, the Sihedron Door still remained closed, but what lie behind it's doors? Knowledge? Death? Answers?

Rise of the Runelords

After looting the ogres and getting past the wall, the group had two tunnels to choose from; the mist filled one, or another tunnel that lead to a darker area. Reiner decided to lead the group through the mist-filled tunnel. About halfway through it, however, Vincent remembered a spell, and dispelled the mist, revealing the next intersection. To the left, the other entrance to the room where our Heroes fought the Lamia. To the right, the start of a hallway with furs lining the sides.

Vincent immediately was wary of the furs, and suggested that they be burned. After the party decided it would be a waste of resources, the started down the hall. After reaching a point, a ranseur burst through the walls, attacking Reiner. As the fur fell, Reiner caught a quick glimpse of a troll behind the wall, using a small slot in the wall to attack through. He warned the rest of the group, but it was too late for Malia and Valtyra, as they also received unexpected blows through the furs.

They had to act fast, and the only way to get through the mess was to get past the wall of furs and around the corner. Reiner, Malia, Valtyra, and Nevik all progressed as quickly as possible through the area. Vincent, Naolexa, Shalelu, and Philip all used Dimension Door to teleport through the hall and to a safe section. Philip quickly used his staff to move the stone wall to close off the tunnel that one of them was in. Nevik worked his way quickly to the other tunnel to deal with the threat there. After making quick work of him, Nevik discovered a treasure chest, which he gathered up and showed the party.

However, Philip had his gaze set on a statue that was on the wall of a three-eyed jackal. As he stared, he saw it twist and contort to look at him directly. It shouted "FOOLS!" While only Philip saw the statue moved, everyone heard the noise.

The Ogres in the room now took to the battlefield, as the ones that Philip spotted earlier began to work their way down the hall. Naolexa, thinking quickly, set up here Necklace of Fireballs for detonation by throwing it down the hallway. She prepared herself to detonate them when someone approached, and since the ogres had no other way of reaching them, they unknowingly walking straight into her trap. One of the ogres was instantly incinerated, while the force of the blast was enough to accidentally set off the bear traps prepared as well.

Meanwhile, on the other wise of the room, more forces showed up, but not before a stone wall appeared, creating a battlement for them to hide behind. The heroes only caught glimpses of who was behind the wall, as arrows began firing out from the wall.

As the fight raged on, an invisible ogre rogue surprised the party as well, and a buffoon ogre charged towards Valtyra. Philip conjured up a wall of fire to prevent anything else from getting through, and to cut of vision of those who were shooting. Nevik managed to trip the buffoon ogre into the large pit meant for them, he perished surprisingly quickly to the fall.

As the rest of the ogres were cleaned up by the group, Philip eventually dispelled his wall of fire to reveal the scorched battlement. The heroes noticed the other ogres had vanished, and a eerie mist only remained in one of the tunnels.

What lies beyond the mist? More trouble? The path to the library? Or both?
