Rediscovered Frontier

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

Rock the Circle

After successfully returning the villagers captured by the Ragebrand orcs back to Ravensperch, there was much rejoicing. Drinks, dancing, illicit hookups, etc. The leadership of Ravensperch agreed to re-establish contact and trade with Port Erilous.

Six decided that, until he figured out why he was suddenly able to use divine power, he would hold off on adventuring with the Dragonslayers and instead open up a gear shop.

Three weeks passed. The ‘Slayers were contacted by Heimdal, who informed them of his intent to return to the Nightsand tribe to bring news of trade between the hobgoblin tribes and Port Erilous. He also gave Quinn a necklace from Yazh’min that turned out to be part of a courtship custom (And Quinn put it on before its significance could be explained).

GFC-97 then approached and began inquiring about the Skull Brigade and its significance. To say that he caused a ruckus is one way of stating it.

Coming peeling out of her lab (as she often does) Ackera arrived and sent Heimdal scurrying for cover. The ‘Slayers covered for him and used the opportunity to deliver a few choice jabs at his pride, which coincided with a slight trebling of the ground. She then asked the ‘Slayers to help her obtain enough Primal Granite to start the construction of a teleport circle back to the old world. She explained that there would be a conjunction with the Elemental Chaos and enough primal matter would be spilling through that it should be possible to collect enough Primal Granite to lay the foundations.

After she left, Heimdal came out of hiding and explained that it would likely be very dangerous. As he left, he asked if they’d felt the earth tremble.

The next day, the ‘Slayers set out. They met a hobgoblin qizarate on the way, but that wasn’t anything a little sword to the face wouldn’t solve.

Heated Religious Debate

The Dragonslayers continued their trek to the north, past the site where the hobgoblin qizarate attacked them. However, they soon spotted a column of smoke in the northeast. Figuring that it was on the way, they headed off the trail to investigate.

What they found there was the trashed remains of a pair of wagons surrounded by a mixed bag of goblins and bugbears. The goblinoids were apparently another part of the qizarate that had waylaid a dwarf trader, who was bound to a post that had just been set alight. Upon spotting the party, they proclaimed that the prophet had delivered them more infidel blood to spill, and proceeded to attack.

The battle was bloody, but the dwarf, Leveen, was rescued. After awakening, it became apparent that he had been mortally wounded. He thanked them for his rescue, saying that after being to the tundras on all four directions, he had no desire to be slain in some sort of ungodly ritual. He asked the Dragonslayers to deliver his ashes and the locket he held to the funeral city of Chemet, in the far northern desert, a request that Zoch agreed to immediately.

All present shared a bottle of enchanted dwarven port before he passed on.

Liquid Hot Magma Beasts

After resting for the evening, the Dragonslayers set out in search of the conjunction between the world and the elemental chaos that Ackera directed them toward.

They found it alright. It was a massive swirling cloud of air, stone, gas, lightning, fire, ice, and mist over a shifting, blasted landscape. They mustered up their courage and proceeded to enter cautiously. After an explosive mishap in which GFC got some good old singed eyebrow-equivalents, Reynolds took over the navigation and was able to successfully lead the party to a relatively stable expanse of land.

Then they got attacked by fiery hellhouds.

After a brief rest, they continued onward to the spot where the magical resonance indicated that the Primal Granite could be found. It was in a small caldera that had several islands of rock in a lake of lava. Magma Beasts seemed to be trying to get at a massive, nine-sided obelisk of the aforementioned Primal Granite covered with arcane and divine geometry that a ghaleb dur was attending and trying to build or repair.

The party proceeded to try to advance cautiously, engaging the magma beasts while suffering fire from the ghaleb dur. Flint jumped amidst several of the magma beasts and thrashed them. Zoch was immobilized by one while GFC advanced slowly and methodically through the beasts. Reynolds summoned a dust devil to fight for him while Koshi provided covering fire.

They discovered that the obelisk would, at random intervals, send out a ragged pulse of arcane or divine energy. This pulse would overload people who used it and force them to release it in a jagged, inefficient blast that they nonetheless directed at their opponents.

Zoch fey-stepped to the large island with the obelisk and engaged the ghaleb dur directly. It took a very dim view of this and demanded that the “channeler” turn back. GFC then underwent a transformation that made him look like a magical cybernetic ram who proceeded to rush the main island and wail on the ghaleb dur.

The confrontation came to a close when it slammed the ground and sent out a shockwave the knocked Zoch off the island. He landed on an outcropping of rock and burst into flame from proximity with the lava. The rest of the Dragonslayers defeated the ghaleb dur and managed to pull Zoch back up, but with the burns covering him so completely, his fate remains unknown.

With the death of its constructor, the obelisk collapsed into a pile of Primal Granite to reveal that it had been containing a bizarre thing that looked like a nine-sided cylinder with a pointed bottom tip. It was covered with otherworldly, alien writing and pulsed with a strange energy…

Seeing everything clearly (and I do mean EVERYTHING)

In spite of how quickly he was pulled out, landing that close to molten lava had caused Zoch to erupt into flames. Even after being pulled from the outcropping, he was covered with hideous burns. He managed to cough out a final farewell before his eyes went blank.

The bizarre monument that was left when the obelisk collapsed was revealed to be a floating, slowly-rotating nine-sided polyhedron with a pointed underside. Strange glyphs with even stranger markings were imprinted on each side, and GFC said that the markings around the glyphs were in the language of the Makers.

Reynolds, in his investigations, tapped it.

When he returned to his senses from where he had collapsed twitching on the ground, he claimed that he had seen “everything”.

It was quickly decided that the monument would lead to no good and the Dragonslayers proceeded to gather up the primal granite that they’d come for while Flint went to investigate something in a quickly forming lake that he’d spotted.

It turned out to be a body encased in ice that thawed when brought to the extremely hot environs of the area surrounding the monument. Within was the body of a strange-looking humanoid who quickly regained consciousness and demanded to know what the “children of the Immortals” were doing in his home. It was quickly established that his name was Othos and he was a Genasi. He claimed to have been serving the Primordials in defending the Elemental Chaos. Now without Primordials to serve, he asked to accompany the Dragonslayers as they were obviously a troop of warriors.

After leaving the site of the conjunction with the Elemental Chaos, they gave Zoch the appropriate field burial. At that point, a fae bounty hunter emerged from the mist, annoyed that he had caught up with Zoch only to find him dead. However, he told the Dragonslayers that Zoch’s debut of insult might very well fall to the shoulders of his companions in the eyes of the Cendriane nobility. Also, he seemed to recognize Koshi as “Little Knife” and indicated that Goldskin would be interested in having found her.

On the way back to Erilous, they came upon a large collection of tracks that seemed to be leading southward. This turned out to be the tracks of a Skull Brigade warband. There was a brief skirmish at with some of their scouts, after which they fled back to Erilous.

Flint and Reynolds delivered the primal granite to Ackera (along with a somewhat over-the-top warning that the Skull Brigade was on the march), GFC and Koshi retrieved the gem from the silver statuette (which turned out to not be silver at all), and Quinn and Othos delivered the news of the Skull Brigade’s movements to Duke Aracksun.

Reynolds nearly got his ass kicked by the patrons of the Silver Griffon, Flint got a big kiss on the cheek from Ackera, GFC attached the gem to a receptacle on his chest and learned the information it contained, Othos made the Duke’s shit list, Quinn got invited to a formal ball, and Koshi caused the least amount of trouble for a change.

After meeting at Six shop for some rest, they were surprised to discover that the person that let them in wasn’t Six but a tall, robed figure in a featureless mask that said one thing:

“I bear a message.”
