Game 2 Down Down Down

The party were woken up sharply by Aurelia summoning them for breakfast.  As they dragged themselves downstairs they smelt the wonderful smell of a fresh cooked breakfast.  They spent time gouging into the food while Aurelia hummed her tunes in the other room.  The party now full discussed the upcoming trip when Shrike shoved all the food into the bag of holding.


After further discussion they headed to the basement and to the back.  Lizbet entered the code for the passage way and the alter slid to the side.

The party traveled for what seemed like hours down a continuous passage way.  Binki looked at the workmanship and determined it was not carved.  Indeed the tunnels look to have been magically made.

Continuing down the tunnel they eventually reached a intersection.  Shrike sent her raven down the left hand tunnel and suddenly lost connection to it.  The party sticking with tradition went left to see what happened.  Rolen and Vhorzim were up front.  Eventually Rolen and Vhorzim entered a small room that was a dead end.  With his sharp elven eyes Rolen spotted a slim crack in the room with some black goop dripping through it.  Just in time as a mass mound formed out of it.  Reaching well above their heads the black pudding tried to catch Rolen but he narrowly avoided it.  A fight ensued with the black roop catching Vhorzim several times almost bringing an early end to his career in the rag tags.  Luring it back to the rest of the group they put and end to it and retreated back to the intersection.  They decided to go left from this passage.  Eventually they found themselves walking on something soft and sticky.  As they looked about they found themselves in the middle of a huge web suspended over a massive chasm.  Above them they could hear the skittering sounds of huge spiders.  They also spotted sacks hanging from the room one which had a arm protruding with wiggling fingers.

Vhorzim flew up and cut it free and binki tried to catch it but got flattened. Opening the sack they found a human in a pretty bad way.  Healing him up attracted the spiders and suddendly they appeared out of nowhere.   Large silver and black things.  The party surrounded the human to protect him but he stood up in defiance and and joined the fight.  They fought bravely but when Shrike set fire to the whole web they knew they hads little time.  They retreated back to the main passage and fought off the last of the spiders.  During the fight the human had managed to extricate the axe from Binki’s back.  

ONce they were safe as can be the human introduced himself as Alstine a guard from Waterdeep.  He had followed a patrol that had been sent into the halls to find and eradicate any remaining drow that might be seeking safety.  The party offered to escort him back but Alstine vowed to continue with them to try and find his colleagues.

The party after some more failed exploration headed back to the massive chasm.  As they looked down they could not see the bottom.  It was then Vhorzim came up with a plan and summoned a hippogryph to ferry them down.  This went well until it came to Binki who weight was too much and injured the creature.  The party managed to heal it up enough for it to bring Alstine down.  Rolen however jumped from the top and activated his new levitation broach he had acquired on his travels.

Now at the bottom they tried to rest but were set upon by a wandering band of kobolds  whom they easily dispatched.  After gaining some rest the party headed down the only open passageway which opened into a long corridor.  They enetred a hexagonal room with pillars reaching from floor to roof.  Some were broken.  Several stairways headed up in different directions.  They chose westwards and found themselves in a long room with mirrors down either side.  Vhorzim got curious and went near one when suddenly his reflection lashed out and tried to grab him and pull him in.  He reacted suddenly shattering the mirror and suddenly his mind was in agonising pain causing him to drop to his knees.  This put the party on guard and Rolen did the same suffering the same migraine.  They tried to rush out the corridor but Vhorzim summoned a great stone wall all around the room sealing the way in but covering the mirrors.  This left the far exit as the only way out.  They went this way following the corridor the right but not before Vhorzim went left up some stairs only to find himself overlooking a massive chasm that he could not see the walls floor or ceiling of.  Though he felt a presence of smoke and fire just as a roar echoed from the depths.  He hightailed it back to the party a stammering wreck.  Thye jested but when he said a “real dragon” they decided to move.  They entered another long corridor eventually passing some steps down and a door at the end.  Rolen fiddled with it setting off a trap sending a lightning bolt streaking down the corridor severely injuring several party members.  The door now opened Binki stepped in.  They found an illusionary door in the wall and binki went through finding himself back in the first  corridor.  The rest of the party took the staircase realising it led back to the room of pillars.  They decided to go back to the narrow corridor not scorched by lightning burns and followed an opening in the wall.  They entered another narrow corridor and went left finding themselves in a room with two exits.  Here they decided to take a rest to tend to their burns and wounds not knowing how much time had gone by….  Little did they know enemies were already aware of their presence and preparing to deal with them……

Adventure 20 Something: Preparation for the coming battkle

The Rag Tags split up in the urgency to find allies for the anticipated defense against the army of Yvonnel Drexa, demon princess of the abyssal plane of Maloj.  

Rolen disappeared summoned by Myrki leaving the rest to decide what to do.  As the party were discussing what to do Azaer also disappeared summoned to help Rolen.

This left Binkie and the rest of the crew to work with Dandalus and Ethanalor to find allies.  Their first stop was the home of Helm on the sword coast being Helm's Hold.  They returned with a bump to find Watchknight Silverhand awaiting them.  She let on she had to flee the persecution going on in Waterdeep and had come to the hold to try and raise support to intervene.

The party discussed the coming battle with her and she wasnt sure she could help but would raise it with the council.  She needed their help i nretur nto get any support to wherever it was they were basing.  They left behind the teleportation scroll for Silverhand to deploy.

Upon returning to the Grandfather oak they found the place busier.  Dandalus and Aluria were nowhere to be seen.  The elves were doing their best to carve bows and arrows for use and finding old stashes of elven weaponry in the forests.

The party were then zapped by Ethanalor to the Forlorn hills.  Here they me twith Haela Brightaxe who after some convincing by Binkie promised to send as many of her battle clerics as she could spare.  Initially she was not happy at the prospect but saw that this threat might escape the forests.

The group returned to the forest to find Dandalus had returned and had begun linking runes together on the ground though he would give no clear answers.   The party also saw that they had been joined by the wild elves and a band of centaurs.  They had camped themselves as far as possible from the rest.  It was beginning to look like it might be harder to get them to cooperate rather than find allies.

At this point a ripple in the air opened and silverhand after a week of gathering support had manage to garner the order of the Watchers of the Fallen.  Alexander was ordained Vigilant of this order due to his battlefield experiences.

She brought as many as 50 clerics and paladins with her.  Silverhand herself had been promoted to the council now ordained Everwatcher Silverhand

As this portal was forming another broke open and out stepped hordes of female battle clerics of clangeddin dressed for battle with Haela at their head.  She freaked when she saw Dandalus and stayed clear of him muttering something about him leveling something or another in the past….

An army was coming together but they were still very low on numbers if to fight that horde of demons, slaves and drow not to mention Drexa.


Meanwhile having been summoned to Myrki's chamber Rolen and Azaer will instructed to proceed into the underdark to garner support from a deurgar king known as Darkbane.  She stated this was their only hope for mass numbers of hardened warriors.  They would have ti play the drow hatred card and play it as tatcical that if the drow gained a foot hold above their city would be next.   Second to this Azaer had his own calling from his master in the promise to collect souls he would deliver resources.  

Myrki informed them that they should pick deugar off from mining camps throughout the underdark.  She knew the pact Azaer had made.  She also informed them not to take too many as it would become obvious.   King Darkbane was no fool.  She indicated the pendant rolen wore would guide him to Darkstone and back.  She granted them band sof starsight which would turn the underdark blackness into starlit objects.  Better than nothing Rolen assumed. 

The two of them trawled the underdark for days picking off deurgar to feed to Azaer's blade.  Rolen knew not why they needed this but went along.   After several days they reached the city.  With Azaers help they tried to infiltrate finding the target perched right in the middle of the city on a dark throne.  They convinced him eventually to lend his support and he promised near 1000 battle hardened infantry and some clerics to support them.  But he was adamant they would take no orders from elves or likewise.  At the mention of Dandalus the king bcame more agreeable muttering he didnt want his city levelled liked the other one 500 years ago…..

Rolen and Azaer headed back trying to communicate with Myrki via the pendant but getting no answers.  Rolen worried pressed ahead.  They laid the teleportation circle and retuned to Myrki's chamber.  Upon arriving all they found was an avatar of Myrki that acted like her but did not talk.  Very puzzled and concerned they headed back to the grandfather oak.  

























Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
