The Party Meets The Sentinels
or Racks of Undead?

Party meets mayor FaelSayph, informs him of their success. Also tells him about kobold infestation in fortification, convincing him they should investigate the kobolds further for more pay. Party takes 20GP each (100 total) with understanding that they will be paid same upon bringing back details of the infestation.

Gwennifer mysteriously missing, party does not look for her.

Party leaves for fortification in Colon Forest sans G. Veyra gets gate guard excited about G’s breasts. Veyra spots movement in clear blue sky but can’t quite place it. Once in tower, party investigates first set of stairs and finds Deathlock Wights and kobold zombie minions protecting book. Mognyr tries to read book but is burned by necrotic energy. Book destroyed as wights are cut down, zombies also vanquished. Investigation of room and connecting chamber ensues, brackets discovered to have fit into wall at some time in the past. Evidence discovered that at least one zombie had been hung from a bracket by soft tissue under chin. M grins thoughtfully.

Stairs to second level descended, tapestry set ablaze by thrown torch. Fought kobolds and drakes, arbalesters stand guard. Arbalesters not orc design. Party destroys all foes. One tapestry depicts orcs in battle garb descending to orcen “heaven”: The Black Stairs leading to the House of Gruumsh. Two smaller tapestries show single orc each in full regalia. Large green glowing statue of orc in battle regalia, Tebryn and M discover it has no arcane properties, stone glows naturally. Discovered secret door.

Fortification not fully explored.

Treasure at Kobold Hall
or The Trouble With Bloodspears!

Two weeks since last entry. Mognyr trying to tame stirge, actually succeeding. Alain fled from nightmares (and strange corresponding sores on his body) into countryside. Tebryn, the Busboy of Nentir decided celebrity, female attention, and freedom too great in current position as busboy to leave for town guard. Eran enjoying influx of new clientel due to local heroes frequenting establishment. Pumkin changes name to Vel.

Gwennifer, goliath warden, arrives from northern mountains, finds party in reverie at inn. Gwennnifer tells party about nearby company of orcs. Vel, Veyra, Tebryn warn mayor of orcs, mayor Faelsayph agrees to pay party for information regarding said orcs. Party leaves at mid-day to track them by western road.

Found, orc encampment, tracks leading away south across the road to Colon Forest. Tracks lead directly to Bloodspear tower, old orc stronghold. Gwennifer finds shit pile. Tower seems to be red herring as fortification is actually underground. Tracks lead in front entrance. Fortification is rubble-strewn and smelly. Found, tired orc company, defeated. Kobold force an unpleasant surprise, orcs apparently trying to gain entrance to fortification through kobold resistance. Kobold wyrmpriest taunts that “Skatharilarn will feast upon your flesh” before luring the party into a failed ambush. Party trounces all. Upon searching claimed ground and fallen creatures, found +1 Staff of War Mage (given to Vel), Flute of Dancing Satyr (given to Veyra)), two copper pieces (in kobold wyrmpriest’s pocketses) with emblem of Bahamut scratched crudely on, and lots of gold. Returned to town and received reward from mayor Faelsayph. Also discovered that orcs are remnants of feared and brutal Bloodspear tribe.

Fortification not explored fully.

The Tower of Waiting
or The Blue Lady in Waiting!

Began adventure at Nentir Inn. Erandil hired hardy looking adventurers (also busboy and a gnoll) to investigate blue light at top of Tower of Waiting. Rowed there, discovered underground dungeon. Dungeon full of undead! Used for torture? Destroyed glowing blue crystal ball and freed Julie (original owner of keep) from undeath. Returned with booty.
