The War for Ishtar

Adventure #1(a)

The party, having taken a contract from Raulk to capture Weireth Tower and slay the wyrmling inside, traveled for two days across the Plain of Khanzas and climbed to the roof of the tower to attack the dragon and several kobolds. At the end of the first session, Matthew and Jacob were 2nd level.

The next session, the PCs met up with Chris’ character in-game, chained up in a corner of the third floor, and he joined them to finish cleansing the tower. They encountered numerous traps and completed two monster encounters. At the end of the session, midnight had just come, and the characters were upgrading to 3rd level. Jacob had been made unconscious but was stable, and Chris had looted the 4th floor while they waited for midnight so Matthew could use Lay on Hands.

It is currently uncertain as to whether or not certain special abilities were used, or the respective hit points of the characters, but this will be determined from their character sheets at the beginning of the next session.

Adventure #1(b)

This continuation of the past two sessions was completed in one session on 5/14/11, with Chris and Jacob present, Matthew being unable to come. Chris and Jacob began the session by completing the leveling of their characters. The PCs Tron and Durzo Muldres were played, with Kraethi having left suddenly to answer a summons from a temple of his deity. He promised to return to Umberik within a fortnight.

The adventure began with Tron and Durzo on the fourth floor of Weireth Tower, recuperating from their adventuring. As Chris prepared to leave carrying Jacob, they spotted Bohr and his refugees from Weireth Town in the distance. In the ensuing struggle, Chris killed one militiaman and one old healer while Jacob slept. Finally, Jacob awoke and they worked out an agreement with Bohr, apologizing for the deaths of the refugees. The remainder of the adventure centered around escorting the refugees to Umberik.

Along the way, Tron encountered a drow necromancer, gestalt combination unknown, that had raised the 2 dead gnolls slain by the PCs as skeletons, and was quietly observing the landscape from his perch on the wheelbarrow. Tron convinced him that he was a slave trader bound for the black market of Umberik. The drow then allowed him to pass unharmed and sold him 5 human slaves for a total of 10 gp. Using Bohr’s knowledge of the Plain of Khanzas, Tron and Durzo circumvented the Drow and took another road to return to Umberik, whereupon they collected their reward. On the way, they fought and killed a lone drow that assaulted Bohr while he was ahead scouting.

It should also be noted that they encountered Raulk at Weireth Tower, and he gave them two scrolls to return to the council, both of which they did subsequently.
