The Falling Stars

pre- 6/24
who are our companions?

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?

July 8th Session

Midway during the trip from the plateau to The Citadel, the group received a message from Teagan:

Knowledge you lack. Possible illusions. Do not trust. Follow rivers south until sea of Fallen Stars. Wait for me at Uthmere, city of towers.

So the group reversed course from NE towards The Citadel, to SSW along the river towards Uthmere.

Along the trip they were attacked by two skeletal scorpion type creatures. Soon after, after much discussion, the group decided to split.

Sciopor, the older girl, and Gato headed on towards Uthmere.

Petrik, Lars, Unca, Raak and the younger girl stayed. Lars had scryed on Horros via the Scrying Bowl, and believes Horros is in the same forest and heading towards the party. They intend to ambush him.

Other notes:

  • The night after splitting, both parties were attacked. Sciopor’s party was attacked by a Dire Bear, and Lar’s party was attacked by large, ragged undead with the skeletal head of a horse.
  • Petrik’s magic bow broke.
  • Lars gave Sciopor the necklace of health.
  • Petrik sent Gato with Sciopor.

July 22nd Session

Written from the perspective of the splity party of Petrik, Lars, raak, Unkaa:

Highlights:

  • This part of the party split off to lay ambush for Horros, who never showed.
  • What did show was a grotesque, horse-sized wolf with translucent skin, a eerie howl and a distended, gorged belly.
  • After that fight, the party decided to catch up to Sciopor’s half of the party.

((Insert here: Sciopor’s description of the fight with the sailors, whereupon Gato mauled a motherfucker))

Once united with Sciopor and Gato, the party managed to talk with the sailors (a couple of which who have just been maimed by Gato), and convince the captain to take them on board to sail for Uthmere. Bartering healing services for passage, the sailors and the party are wary of each other but no futher incident occurs between them on the ship … until …

The ship is assaulted by two megaladon — 60’ long, gargantuan sharks. A couple people from the party and many sailors are thrown over board. Some sailors are swallowed whole.

Highlights:

  • Lars summons several octopodes to ink the water and save lives. How heroic.
  • Petrik is swallowed whole. How tragic.
  • Petrik panics and decides to expand The Cube, blowing the shark up. How awesome.
  • Petrik inadvertently capsizes the boat, kills many of the sailors, traps other ones below deck and strands the party in the middle of the ocean amidst a veritable shit-ton of megaladon chum. How OMGWTF.
