All is Well

Zombeees!

After leaving Nybor, the party travelled through the woods in a deep fog until they scouted a figure. As the figure drew closer, the party was ambushed by zombies. After a grueling battle filled with an impervous horse, tongued zombies, and missed opportunity for zombie rot, the party proved triumphant. As the zombie lord fell the fog lightened and the party saw the desolation within the forest. Bodies littered the ground in the forest were the battle had taken place. As any good adventuring party would, any useful items were quickly seized and divided.
The heroes collected:
1) Noble’s outfit
2) Arrows (20)
3) Bottle, glass
4) Potion of Cure moderate wounds
5) Potion of Eagle’s spendor
6) Horn of Fog
7) Pot, iron
+ Gems & Jewels(285gp)
+ Coins(15gp)

The Return
The bar brawl was a feast for the eyes. Shalmanazar tripped over the bar, Gygnus lost some gold in the heat of the battle Aerel stood on a table, and Einric was hitin the head with a bottle. The party did find Gilberto in the bar and after the guards calmed the patrons, the they made their plea. Gilberto had 1 vial of crimson Basilisk blood but had to find it and the party found refuge at the inn till morning. Back at the guild they made the transaction and headed back to Sandpoint. During the midway camp they were assaulted by goblins and easily dispatched them. On return to Sandpoint the blood was given to Hanna and she went to prepare a concoction that may help. Einric followed to help with the preparation. The party was told to come back close to midday to find out the result.

Shopping!
A brief report of the events of 29 June.

The mayor provided the party with four horses and a bag of coins to travel to Magnimar in search of Crimson Basilisk blood. After traveling for four hours, camp was made. A band of 6 Kobolds interrupted an otherwise peaceful evening, they were dispatched in a bloody manner befitting their appearance. 50 gold coins looted from the bodies and were distributed between the party.

After traveling most of the day, the party arrived at the North Entrance to Magnimar. The Apothecary and Physicians Guild was found in the Keystone District. It was learned that a Dwarven healer by the name of Gilberto Llewellyn was are best prospect. Searching him out at a local drinking establishment lead the party into the midst of a bar brawl.

To find out who gets drunk and passes out, who gets in a fight and gets knocked out, and who gets arrested, tune in tonight!

Swallowtail Festival and an Unconscious Woman
A brief report of the events of 22 June.

Charlie and Aerel participated in the The Devil Hunt. Aerel had the luck of Bastet with him and scored a bullseye, winning a pie. Charlie tried really really hard and deserves our respect for using a big boy bow.

Charlie’s honor was redeemed by winning the Dragon Races and earning a medal.

It was discovered that Einric couldn’t throw a goblin to save his life, but showed his worth by being a champion glutton in the pie eating competition. Although there were hushed mumblings that more of the pie ended up in his beard than his mouth, eight pie were consumed and the championship medal does adorn our stalwart dwarven compatriot.

Somehow a jar of 57 pickled onions and an invitation to join the city militia ended up in Aerel’s possessions.

After the festivities, the mayor’s sister-in-law was found unconscious and was attended to by an elvish healer. For those playing along at home, the mayor is Kendra Deverin, the unconscious women is Vanna Deverin, and the elf is Hanna Velerin.

Hanna provided some useful information to the party. It is possible that Vanna has the Blood Veil, a plague engineered for the Red Mantis assassins, thought to be eradicated? She further suggested that the blood of a Crimson Basilisk may be a useful component in a cure.

Swallowtail Festival
The beginning

Intro

The Swallowtail Festival begins promptly, as scheduled, on the morning of the first day of autumn. A cool breeze blow constantly from the ocean, but the skies are mostly clear with on a few high white fluffy clouds drifting slowly by. The square before the new cathedral quickly becomes crowded as locals and travelers arrive. Local farmers and businesses have their produce on display, several merchant tents feature food, clothes, exotic crafts and souvenirs, and several contests, games of chance and other entertainments are also being set up in the square and throughout the town for the more dangerous and ‘discreet’ activities.

Welcoming Speeches
The turnout for the opening speeches is quite respectable, and the four keynote speakers each deliver short but well-received welcomes to the festival. Mayor Deverin’s friendly attitude and excitement prove contagious as she welcomes visitors to town and jokes about how even Larz Rovanky, the local tanner (and notorious workaholic), managed to tear himself away from the tannery to attend, much to everyone’s but Larz’s amusement.

Sheriff Hemlock brings the crowd down a bit with his dour mood, his reminder to be safe around the evening’s bonfire, and his request for a moment of silence to remember those who lost their lives in the fire that claimed the town’s previous church five years ago.

Fortunately, Cyrdak Drokkus (of the local theater) is more than up to the challenge of bringing the crowd’s mood back up with his rousing anecdotes as he delivers a not-completely-irreverent recap of the long process the town went through to finance and construct the new cathedral. He throws in a bit of self-promotion at the end, as is his wont, inviting everyone to stop by the Sandpoint Theater the following evening to check out his new production of The Harpy’s Curse, revealing that the lead role of Avisera the Harpy Queen will be played by none other than the famous Magnimarian diva Allishanda!

Finally, Father Zantus steps up give a short speech thanking everyone for coming before declaring the Swallowtail Festival underway. he invites everyone to partake in the activities the locals have set up (not that he seems to approve of all of them), before meeting back here, outside the Cathedral at noon for the Swallowtail Release – something the children seem especially excited about. As some of the local eateries rush off to prepare for the free lunch, most other locals scatter to run and partake in the activities.

(I have listed some of the activities below, so you can indicate which you would be most interested in, in order).

Catch the Greased Pig & Guess the Pickled Onions
Corners of Junker’s Way and Shell Street, just west of the Market Square.

Ogre Stomp
“Step on up, boys! No girl likes a noodle-armed weakling. Let’s see your strength!”
The staple game of every good carnival: a strength tester involving smashing a hammer on one end of a log on a pivot to spring the wood at the other end up a shoot to ring the bells.

This is actually set up inside Savah’s Armory, just south of the market Square. A lot of cheering comes from within even at this hour. The single men of the town crowd around to get in, the families stay clear, and any taken man is quickly hurried on by their partner. Exactly what is going on cannot be seen by walking past.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
