Chapter 15: What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse

MYRE3-1 What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse

Kayleth, Prevoss, Luckwarder Luck, Ms. ~kri, a halfling archer, and a dragonbred kobold monk were asked by the Prophet of Helm’s Hold and the church of Sehanine Moonbow to help a deva skald recover from the curse of a thousand spiders set upon him by the spiderkin hag Mnemnia. They were to secure an old tomb of Iliyanbruen and defend it from a likely raider. They immediately found a lich there who turned out to be a good-aligned defender, only provoked into battle by the trickery and torment of demons. They left him intact and heard of his cousin, Veserac Aelorothi, who had joined the daemonfey. They then protected the temple from Sebek-Horus, a scion of the Red Wizard Ankhalab family, and his animated corpse of Hurin Silverblade, the moon elf who had been spying on him. When the fey arrived to use the location and knowledge to remove the curse, they discovered that the lead ritual caster was a surviving sister, Lethia of the dark fey coven. Nonetheless, both sides chose to honor their agreement and parted on peaceful terms.

Chapter 14: Eclipse

MYRE3-1 Eclipse

Justiciar D’Emona, Luckwarder Luck, Ms. ~kri, and Dunstan found no problem in helping the House Silverblade torturer and making peace between eladrin and dwarves, resulting in them getting Lady Silverblade killed by gnolls and also slaughtering a Cormyrean Purple Dragon Knight who was obviously off his rocker even to his own subordinates.

Alternatively, some say it was Ms. ~kri, Luckwarder Luck, Bharhash, and Therod who recovered the sarcophagus for Gazeem’s Emporium, and Luckwarder Luck, Bharhash, Mole, and Therod who fought the Banite Zhents in the ruins of Zhentil Keep. This version of the story is lent more credence by details that were given: the heroes apparently examined the sarcophagus more carefully than their supposed predecessors, finding Spellplague energy but no overt effects.

MYRE3-1 There Can Be Only One

Imani, the Sage of Hap, gave a further adventure clue to Ellaria, Elzzup, Kethran, Tik, Grum, and Naz, heroes who had gotten back the Diamond Staff of Chomylla from the Black Network, as well as Dunstan. He had uncovered a remaining treasure cache in the ruins of Zhentil Keep, but more mercenaries were also on their way to claim it. Soon after finding the loot, the adventurers were attacked by goblin wolf riders led by a vampire and a barghest. They killed several and the packmaster attempted to give up the treasure for their lives, but was refused. Afterward, the heroes received a letter from one Vigo the Calishite, a Cyricist Zhent who appreciated their help in purging the remnants of the church of Bane and Maglubiyet from the Black Network.

MYRE3-1 Mandorcai’s Magnificent Mansion

http://www.meetup.com/dnd-192/events/126138342/

Taking a break from finding the Meatmonger, a party consisting of Ms. ~kri, Daxis, Dunstan, Grr, Mordecai, and Raz’Ul investigated a haunted mansion. After entering a room and teleporting with a giant snake, Grr found himself facing his only weakness: fellow kobolds, whom he refused to attack. These kobolds were led by a mighty dragonborn from Tymanther and a gold dwarf from the Gemstone chaka of Estagund, along with an abishai who had hired them to clear out the mansion. The kobolds found Grr an easy target since he would not fight back, but his comrades killed all the foes. In particular, Ms. ~kri was certain to try to talk down the dragonborn renegade from the Flaming Fist, and after that failed, recovered her gear. Once this was done, the heroes found the banelar naga’s journal, which claimed that it had power over the other worshipers of Banehold because it knew of the murders the dragonborn had committed to become an exemplar of Tiamat.

Chapter 10: Transitions

MYRE3-1 Transitions

Horn, Vanchu, Bragon, Grr, Lucan, and a mage accepted a job from Lady Sala Nidris to pick up an ancient dwarven sarcophagus from the Sons of Alagondar in an unprotected zone of Neverwinter for a museum in Almraiven. They found a dwarf and the item at the meet site, but were soon attacked by the faction’s kraken, who had escaped through the Chasm and spouted cryptic telepathic warnings. It mauled the two berserkers, but their meat-shielding and blows helped subdue it. To the dwarf’s disappointment, the kraken was killed by the mage’s running fountain of flame before they could drag its unconscious form out. The heroes completed their transaction, but they never found out what had driven the aberration even madder than usual.

This time, Ms. D’Estroya, Ms. Kri, Heartwarder Luck, Ms. Zaramovic, Grr, Metus, Raz’Ul, and Z3AL0T MKI were faced with moon elves of House Silverblade, lycanthropes of the People of the Black Blood, and gnolls of the Hati Tribe who attacked them without provocation. They slaughtered most of them, but only after trading Lady Silverblade back to the Hati Tribe with all her gear. After being with the Lizard Kingdom and seeing its fractious ways, she felt that the heroes’ victory would be a threat to her well-being and fled even though charmed. However, this trade got them information on the Meatmonger’s route on his last circuit of Faerûn, which came from the Thekite Empire in the Thunder Peaks of Cormyr.

Druid Zaramovic, Justiciar D’Estroya, Grr, and Z3AL0T MKI were tipped off to the locations of gnolls by a moon elf named Lady Silverblade in the High Forest. After fighting some very touchy denizens (a gnoll invoker of Sehanine Moonbow and some forest elves), they found that Lady Silverblade had been captured. In the attempt to rescue her, Grr was ambushed. He blocked the entrance to a cave from which lycanthropic gnolls were issuing as he picked up the silver moonblade at the prisoner’s advice. It burst into flame, but with his kobold instincts, he managed to dodge the worst of it while the gnolls were burnt. The heroes slaughtered the gnolls and captured their erstwhile moon elf ally, only to find that the gnoll slavemaster had been the only one who had knowledge of the Meatmonger. They kept Lady Silverblade as a hostage in hopes of finding more information from the main portion of the Hati Tribe.

Chapter 7: On the Back of a Crocodile

MYRE3-1 On the Back of a Crocodile

Justiciar D’Estroya, Grr, Ronan, and Tharnell ventured under a desert, where they saved Iteru, a shifter servant of Okoth, from khaastas. She led them close to the city and inadvertently into a trap with the pretense of helping them find the location of the Meatmonger, not knowing that Skek’na would send his minions (including her, as he could control her blood) to kill the heroes. The sarrukh had a grudge towards Grr for killing his other slaves earlier. Grr and friends swiftly killed Iteru’s lycanthrope father and his pet crocodile and snake. Capturing the daughter in the process, Grr decided to take her with them.

Morgaine, Grr, Ronan, and Z3AL0T (Mark I) helped the Gemstone chaka deliver emeralds through a mountain and saved the life of a half-elf named Huedyn who ambushed the companions. After protecting the Gemstone chaka’s investments from the slaves of the fomorians of Nacmoran, they took a job from the Maquar to spy on Tirumala and find the identities of two of the rakshasas’ agents in Estagund. It will take time to gain the support and proof to take on the rajah’s right-hand man, but for the moment, the heroes have the next step to Find the Halflings.
