A Stich in Time...

Kinda awkard moment
Work as a team damnit

Kava realizes she was Vanamere in a past life cycle
- Back in the now, Jeras lies dead
- The group examines the talisman Jerak had
- They sense something is magical about it, but its not the talisman itself. Its something inside
- They break it open and discover a small sliver.
- Looks to have been broken off somehting and then put in the talisman
- Further looking at the talisman reveals its really cheaply made
- The group doesn’t think about it at all and never revisits the issue of where it came from or who made it

The group checks out the open sarcophagi
- A dwarf in full battle armor is inside
- He is holding a hammer and a shield
- inside the coffin near his face is a ring made of an expensive metal
- (Dwarves usually wear rings in their beard then on their fingers)
- Obrin notices how nice that armor is
- Obrin says “fuck group dynamic” and tries to take the sheld out
- The shield is still strapped around the dwarfs arm
- The whole dwarf nearly comes out of the coffin
- Lots of fighting between Kava and Obrin about what’s happening
- she says to let him and not desecrate him
- Obrin says hes dead and doesn’t need it
- Obrin and Kava fight, but Kava is near death from the previous fight
- Edoria performs a heal on Kava.
- The heal has some extra kick to it. Kava is fully healed and starts glowing with a radiant light
- The rest of the group is looking at the other coffin, trying to figure out how to open it
- Kava says not to open the coffin
- She reveals she is in the coffin and that she was married to the dwarf
- The mural is about them. It wasn’t completed before the attacks happened
- Obrin stops being a jerk and tries to put the dwarf as he was
- As they go to close the lid, Kava grabs the ring and puts it on
- They close the lid. They do not open the other coffin

The group leaves and heads back to town

(I don’t really remember the order these parts happen. If you do, let me know for points).

- They do a few things in town
- Obrin runs across a dog
- He looks sick and not well taken care of
- He tries to win the dogs affection
- He has the dog’s attention. That something
- He names him Ralph. THE GROUP HAS A PET!!!

(I don’t really remember the order these parts happen. If you do, let me know for points).

- The group talks to Faringray
- Tells him what happend and that he needs to send guards and surveyors to the tower right away, but don’t tell him exactly why.
- Faringray does so
- The group asks if the dwarf masons have came to town
- Faringray says he hasn’t seen them yet, but will keep an eye out
- Everyone goes to sleep

The next morning
- The group sells a bunch of stuff to a store
- The dog gets sick in Kava;s room
- Obrin says he’s gonna clean up the dog then clean the mess, but just leaves with the dog instead
- Obrin goes to Naerumar’s Imports to buy some items with his new funds
- Naerumar notices the dog and see his wounds
- After obrin buys a few things, Naerumar offers to help his dog
- He gets out a few items and starts mixing some things together
- He is a herbalist and is making a salve for the dogs wounds
- Obrin is thankful. He asks if Naeurmar knows where one can get poison
- Naeumar’s demeanor changes. In hushed tones, he says that poisons are illegal in most towns and trying to buy it is illegal
- He does mention the Lucky Gnome Taphouse is rumored to be selling more than booze, but he doesn’t deal with them. Too much risk
- Obrin thanks him and leaves

Later that night
- The group is having dinner at the Silver unicorn
- Obrin leave early for an “errand”
- Iskandar notices a drunk man walking amoung the crowded tavern
- He bumps into people and apologizes
- Iskandar notices the man is putting something in his pocket everytime he does so
- He alerts the group and goes to intercept
- Iskandar goes to him and starts a friendly conversation
- During this, Kava covers the door while Edoria tells a staff member to get a guard
- The man tries to leave but notices Kava blocking the door
- Iskandar uses his tail and rips a hole in the mans pocket
- A lto of coins and other items fall out
- People jump all over it while Iskandar leads the man to their table
- Kava and Edoria join him
- Iskandar asks some quesitons about the man
- He says his name is “fore” and was just trying to make a buck
- A guard enters the tavern and is pointed to their table. The crowd is heavy so it takes a while for the guard to get ther
- Fore see’s this and gets really nervous and begs the group to let him go
- After some more questions from Iskandar, Fore mentions that he works odd jobs here and there and knows his way around the stable
- Iskandar then makes a surprise move and asks if Fore wants a job
- Fore is confused by this. “what?”. he is still trying to leave
- Iskandar says if Fore can prove his worth and stop stealing, he will call off the guard. If not, he can spend his time in a cell
- As the guard approaches the table, Fore hastly agrees
- Iskandar says it was a mistake and thanks the guard for coming over
- Iskandar leaves with Fore to the stable to test his story
- Faith and Edoria go to bed

Years ago, she was inside this room, looking down on a cot

Vanamere Tower
New people show up!

Someone is skulking through Fallcreast
- He wears a long cloak with a hood so as not to be noticed
- He finally finds what he has been looking for: The Silver Unicorn
- He enters and asks Wisara Osterma (The stern halfing owner) if Custos Luminis is there (Lux for short)
- She asks if he’s here to try and become a member (they have flyers out asking for more people)
- He says yes
- She wishes him luck and directs him to the basement

He goes downstairs and sees the group
- An Eladrin is sitting at a table making potions
- She has bright pink hair that sparkles and her skin is purple
- Across from her is an elf gesturing at the Eladrin, trying to suppress a laugh
- The Eladrin looks up, is confused, and looks at herself
- She says “Knock it off Obrin”.
- The Elf says “It’s all in fun Edoria. How about a smile?”
- A smiley face appears on her sun borach
- She sees this and gets angry
- She stands up and walks forward, but does’t walk into the table
- She fey steps in front of him, staring him down
- The elf stops laughing and says “okay okay. Sorry”. and stops gesturing.
- Her hair turns blonde and her skin becomes a more natural tone
- Obrin walks over to a Tiefling who is sitting at another table. His head is down and what looks like fog is swirling around him. A ghost like owl is sitting on his shoulder.
- Kava walks over to Edoria. She has a wine bottle and a few cheap goblets
- She puts them down and pours the wine into the goblets
- She gets Edoria’s attention and tries to hand her a goblet
- Edoria waves her head no and wants to keep working
- Suddenly, loud noises occur on the other side of the room
- The tiefling is now standing up and seems to be directing the owl which is now flying around the room
- Obrin is pretending to fire his bow as arrows made of light are trying to shoot the owl, but he keeps missing
- One arrow seems to make a 180 degree turn and hit the owl
- The tiefling accuses the elf of cheating.
- The elf says “You’re cheating!”
- They get into a small wrestling match
- Edoria and Kava drink heavily from their goblets
- Edoria puts her goblet down and notices the stranger, she yells in surprise
- Kava also yells in surprise
- Obrin and Iskandar yells in surpise
- The stranger yells in surprise
- EVERYONE IS YELLING

Edoria asks who he is
- He introduces himself as Nurm, a Githzerai Invoker
- He is here about the tryouts
- Obrin asks what can he do
- Nurm doesn’t know what to say or do
- Nurm tries to impress everyone and performs a daily spell
- Nurm fucks up and hits some of the members
- The group loads their weapons and Obrin starts fighting Nurm
- A young tielfing boy comes down the stairs with a letter
- Some of the group is still fighting with Nurm, and the boy unintentionally gets in the way
- Iskandar puts stone armor on the boy
- The boys is cover in stone, he screams, drops the letter and runs back upstairs
- Things calm down when Wisara runs downstairs and demands to know what is happening
- She heard what sounded a little like fighting, then a big bang, then real fighting, and then saw a small stone creature running up the stairs and out the door, crying.
- Nurm says it was a misunderstanding and he’s sorry. The group apologizes too.
- Wisara says she is taking a few days off of rent. They have ten days until they are kicked out.

Kava reads the letter
- The letter is from Captain Nathan Fairingray, Captain of the Fallcreast Guard
- He requests the group meet him tomorrow. He has been instructed by The Lord Warden of Fallcrest to reach out for their assistance and they will be paid to do so.
- The group says that this will be a tryout for Nurm. If he does well, he can join the group
- Nurm agrees and stays at the Silver Unicorn for the night
- As they were about to walk upstairs, Edoria tries to trip Obrin as a joke
- She rolls a 1.
- Her joke goes horribly wrong, as she somehow trips over her own feet
- She flips the table with all the potions and catapults a bunch of chemicals onto a few wooden barrels
- The barrels catch fire
- Whoops
- Uh Oh
- Ooops

The next morning…
- The group goes to meet up with Captain Nathan Fairingray
- He is training some new recruits in farmland
- It’s raining, so it’s muddy. One recruit gets his boot stuck in the mud. The others push him over and laugh.
- Nathan just shakes his head
- He tells the group that Lord Warden Faren Markelhay hired a group of six dwarf stonemasons to rebuild a ruined tower in the west. Faringray was assigned to protect them.
- He and six well trained guards accompanied the stonemasons to the tower. He had to leave a few days later as he was summoned back to train the new town guard warriors. He left the soldiers behind
- Day before yesterday, a group of people attack and overwhelmed the guards. Sorik Ovash (a dwarf who is nearby) was the only one to escape. He says they were humans in leather armor and had their face painted to resemble skeletons. There were also real skeletons too.
- The tower was key to the town’s defenses a few generations ago. Thirty some years ago, a legion of goblins and hill giants attacked. A powerfull elf storm wizard named Vanamere was one of the defenders at the tower. At the end, the giants lay dead, the goblins were driven off, and the tower was destroyed. No one knew what happened.
- Fallcreast lacked the funds and incentive to rebuild the tower. But with everything that happened in Winterhaven, the reconstruction has been put back on.
- Faringray wants to deal with the problem himself. But his orders are clear and he has to stay and train the recruits. The group is to go deal with the situation and to take Sorik with them (as he has the most information about what is going on).
- The group agrees

Back in town
- The group resupplies and gets things together
- Sorik was left at a tavern. While waiting, he met and hired another adventurer. He is a dragonborn Warlock named Menelaos
- Sorik has paid him to come with, as he is really worried about the skeletons
- The group gets what the need and takes a wagon and horses to their desination

The group arrives at the base of a hill the tower is on
- It is really foggy. It’s hard to see.
- Sorik stays behind. He is not a fighter
- The group splits up when approaching the tower.
- When close to the tower, they see a few humans. One of them has a dwarf on his knees. The dwarf has his hands behind his back and a knife at his throat.
- The man says “Drop your weapons or the dwarf dies”.
- The dwarf stamps on the foot of the man and gets away, running toward the group Edoria is in.
- Everyone fights
- Edoria asks his name. He say its Tarjin. He was working on the tower when they were attacked
- Tarjin says that he knows where the other dwarves are and convinces Edoria to go with him and do a sneak attack
- However, when they cannot be seen by the others, Tarjin attacks and knocks out Edoria
- After the fight, Edoria wakes up and goes back to the group
- This is confusing as there is already an Edoria with the group
- Two Edorias? Oh man, that sounds tricky. How will they figure out who the real one is? This is going to be so much fun.
- Obrin just shoots one of them.
……
……..
- Thanks Obrin
- After a brief scuffle, they capture the fake Edoria
- Fake Edoria revets to his normal form. A Doppelganger named Celk
- He say he was forced to help the man yellow skulls people. He says a bog with named Zerilka hexed him and ordered him to protect the tower. If he defied her, he would die.
- The group believes him and tie him up. Celk even helps them by telling them how to tie him up so he just cant change shape and leave. Group listens.
- He is placed in one of the tents. Sorik is to stay with him and guard him. Sorik really doesn’t like this idea but he does so.
- The group finds the tower. It still destroyed, but there is a giant hole in the middle of the floor. It looks to be 20 ft deep and there is a 25 feet rope ladder rolled up near by. The appears to be a huge chamber below the tower.
- The group ask Celk and Sorik about the hole
- Sorik says that wasn’t there when he got away. In fact, he states he had no idea there was anything under the tower. Celk says while he heard noises in the tower, he stayed outside to keep guard.
- The group decides to try and infiltrate the chamber. They will put yellow paint on their faces and try to appear one of the Yellow Skulls

Dungeons and Dragons: Special Victims Unit
DUN DUN!!

The group decides to investigate the bedroom
- A guard is blocking the door, but lets the group pass by when they flash their new badges
- The blood and Nihlus’s walking stick is bloody, but the body is gone
- Guard says body was removed and taken to the temple

The group looks around for evidence
- One person checks the door. They notice that the door lock is not broken. However, there is some type of fluid in the lock.
- The fluid is used to make opening locks quieter.
- The window is closed but the glass is broken
- Probably broke when Nihlus jumped through
- They check the lock to the window and it is not locked
- Try opening the window but it seems stuck.
- Takes a while, but they manage to open it
- However, part of the window snaps off when it opens and breaks off part of the window sill.
- There is some kind of glue or epoxy on the window. Its super strong and would have kept the window closed.

The group checks out the bar area for what happened last night
- They talk to Salvana Wrafton to figure out what happened
- Salvana said they were partying a little hard.
- Reason why Kava and Iskandar were in the same bed was because they were dancing on tables together. It was a simple mistake.
- When asked about the waiter who served them last night, Salvana says that she doesn’t have waiters. She hires waitresses for the front. The only men on staff are cooking or such but none of them ever come up front. Also, the man you describe doesn’t sound like anyone on staff
- When told about the bottle, Salvana has a surprised look on her face
- She says that she wasn’t told anything about the bottles and that she would have known for sure if you were given one. The other bottles are stored at the inn for safekeeping.
- She goes into the back and uses a key to open a cabinet. There are two bottles in there. Salvana says there were three the other day. Group confirms that at least the bottle was real.
- Salvana asks a waitress to get the head waitress. She would also have a key.
- While waiting, the group goes through a bunch of broken bottles that have been swept up and are now in a pile in the back.
- After a few nicks and cuts, they find the bottle they were served. It looks like one of the bottles in the cabinet (however it is broken).
- On the bottom of the bottle looks to be melted wax. They take the wax off and see a small hole has been drilled into the bottle.
- There is no liquid recoverable from the bottle.
- The head waitress arrives. Salvana asks for the key. The waitress checks her pockets and notices that its missing.
- The group asks the waitress if she has seen the man and she says yes. He was in earlier that day. He was handsome and was nice to talk to.
- Her face goes to realization and states that when she turned to leave, he bumped into her as an “accident”. She thought he was flirting and didn’t think anything of it.

The group decides to go to the temple and see if they can figure anything out with the body
- They are told that the body is being worked on under the temple.
- When the group arrives, they see both Douven Staull and Valthurn the Sage. Both of them are wearing a black feather on their clothing (representing the Raven Queen).
- Douven heard what happened and decided to delay returning to his training camp to try and help.
- Valthurn is responsible for cases like this.
- Both don’t believe nihlus would have done this, but have no evidence
- Both say that Mallory was bludgeoned to death with Nihlus’s walking stick
- The group tells the duo what they have found out so far and what happened to them the night before.
- The group also notices something is in Mallory’s mouth/throat.
- Douven takes care and removes a small circular stone from her mouth
- The stone has the symbol of Avandra on it
- Nihlus had given this stone to her some time ago
- THAT DOESN’T LOOK GOOD!
- Kava remembers that she has some of the wine they drank in a flask
- Valthurn takes the liquid and does some alchemical shit
- Says that there is a poison called “Black Widow’s Kiss” mixed with the wine
- It’s usually used in seedier territories. Prostitutes would slip it to their johns. It causes the john to fall asleep and removes short term memory. Prostitute would then rob them and leave.
- Valthurn thinks the group should go talk to Mallory’s mother. See if anyone was giving her any undue attention.
- She lives outside the city in a small cottage. She has a simple job.

The group meets with Mallory’s mom
- She is very sad (of course)
- After some condolences, the group talks to her to see if anyone didn’t like her
- Mother says she was liked by everyone. No one would have done this.
- Group notices that the mom keeps looking toward the door

- The group asks for his name and she says its Thomas.

- Group notices the ring and how expensive it is. They ask how he could afford for the ring
and the bad guy on his rage.
- Thomas says he’s paid to be the eyes and ears of the town’s guard. Sometimes, he would
be paid more to not see or hear anything.
- He says the crimes were small like bringing in illegal goods or the like. It was never to harm someone else
- Said he could help the group. He knows where the assassin was going to be.
- He was going to go to (bad guard) house to obtain the rest of his payment.
- Says he could help bring the guy to justice and everything would be fine. He would be a hero as he helped bring a murderer to justice
- Group says he is going to help them and then go to jail. Thomas begged that Mallory’s mom not be told his role in it. He is all she has left and doesn’t know what she would do if she found out.
