Here is my recollection of some of the events that have led us to the present point, from the standpoint of the role of the NPCs. My memory aint fantastic, so feel free to edit as needed (especially in the direction of providing temporal sequence to these events, if you are so inclined).
The original characters in the group are Lars, Sciopor, & Petrik. Along the way we acquired a mini-dragon, who essentially hatched out of a crystalaline egg. This egg was obtained from Horros’ compound, which we narrowly escaped from alive. (That sneaky bastard had set up a trap for us, by posing as a human survivor in the midst of hordes of undead). The dragon has gone from being a fetid member of the group who attempted to eat everything in sight (Gato included), to being a somewhat useful companion.
Raak, aka Petrik’s brother (half-brother) came on board shortly before all that. I will leave the details of his affiliation to the group, for Petrik to fill in. Suffice it to say, the guy is a beast when it comes to fighting.
We now have 2 little ones with us, the older of the two has defined herself as the daughter of Horros. We originally encountered her, while running for our lives from a cadre of worm-like creatures who were consistently…wait for it…pushing our shit in. She led us to Horros’ compound where we thought we were safe, but (reference above).
After leaving the compound, the older girl & her down syndrome sibling managed to track us down (i guess as a party we’re not fantastic at avoiding leaving a trail), and have been with us ever since. The older girl appears adept in the ways of magic.
The younger girl demonstrated her utility in a recent session (6/24 i believe?), as her apparently non-sensical drawings served as the key to opening up the humongous cube (non-gelatinous). Funny story that.
Oh, and we had to fight to keep the cube from being blown up in the first place. As we arrived upon it, we encountered an alien-like creature who was making his way towards it, grenade-like object in hand. We narrowly bested him, thwarting his attempts to blow the cube to smithereens, but nearly getting our own shit pushed in, in the process.
Ok, I think that covers a little bit, regarding the characters that we are travelling with?
