We went and saw both Satibah and Zinth today. It is indeed wonderful to be in the presence of the Great Ones. We explained the unfortunate situation that occurred with Zephras, and they informed us of the charges that were laid on Drentch. It appears someone is trying to frame him for the Girsaga’s death. His body was found in the slums of the Peace.
We also learned how we could damage individuals in the piece. It appears Drentch had a mechanism attached to his spiked chain that allows anyone within a 70 foot radius of the device to be wounded in the Peace. This does not look good for our framed Drentch. How it got into his spiked chain, we do not know.
We explored the magic shop that Drentch had been dealing with to see if they had a part in this scheme. It is the same shop that put a portal diverter on me. I think I will have to have a talk with them. We also explored the slums in the attempt for some kind of a trail, and only found, at this point, an old musician and some goblins who have lost a brother. The trial is soon so we must work quickly.
the XP report
two dragons – an encounter with the possibility of serious danger. likely not lethal, but one never knows. plus some PC-on-PC violence. let’s call it CR 14: 16200 XP
assorted investigations, including dangerous weasel piss ale: we’ll call that CR 9, equal to where you guys are at: 2700 XP
that’s a total of 18900 XP among six PCs: 3150 XP each. some of you guys will likely hate me for this, but that puts the totals at:
date: VII 417/3/53 – you took a day off to do assorted stuff, after last session. oh, and speaking of that session, cupriccanine wrote that one up, so perhaps it was rilly someone else’s turn this time?
a couple of points of fact – kalon may be worng about these, but the players needn’t be:
anyone within a 70 foot radius of the device
How it got into his spiked chain, we do not know.
that, actually, you do know – drentch (inadvertently) attached it himself, when he attached his augment crystal to the chain. how the item (a “bellicose nodule”) came to be attached to the augment crystal is the more relevant question.
