War of the Burning Sky

Bombs Away

Slithe hears something upstairs. Grobb and Silthe go to investigate. I (Regdar) follow a short distance behind. Boom! Chaos ensues as we feel explosions shake the pub. Just as I make my way up the stairs Grobb and Slithe run by me fleeing from who knows what. Torrent begins screaming that we need to get out of here. Everything is confusion.

Black Guard soldiers break into the pub and order us to surrender. War dogs bark in the street awaiting prey. Two more Black Guard attempt to surround us from upstairs. The situation looks bleak.

Now its our turn…

Kirouk begins cleaving into the thugs that came in through the front door. They don’t stand a chance. Some are raw recruits and they look terrified facing this skilled opponent. Several go down before him.

Slithe disappears completely right before my eyes. Grobb enters the battle and is even more terrifying in ferocity than Kirouk. I call upon Amaunator and use the power to assist finishing off weakened opponents with brilliant radiance. These ruffians are too weak to resist.

We eventually escape as the Pub is practically collapsing before us. Belsay apparently has a power of summoning knives or daggers or some such, which helped to finish off the recruits. Slithe had been fighting the war dogs in the ally outside the pub. A knight on horseback could be seen fleeing as I approached. My companions mention the name of Kathor and that he was the leader of the ones attaching us.

As we finish up the battle a family approaches us. They are badly injured. We discover Wyvern Riders had bombed their home the same as the Pub. How much of the city was damaged?

We take the group to the Aquiline church to get help for them. Here we meet with the head priest (who I know well) Fiodar Soulheart. The church is already at max capacity with the injured but does take the family in. Fiodar has no information on what has happened.

We decide to press on with the mission to find Rivereye Badgerface. But there are now more questions. What is going on in the city? Will this new development make it easier or more difficult to find the gnome and escape the city…?

War is Coming

The Beginning…

An army is marching from Ragesia. People are frightened. The council is foolish. I, Regdar am forced into a difficult decision. No longer am I able to remain an indirect member of the resistance. I must withdraw from my duties with the church and defend the city.

Emperor Coaltongue appears to be dead. His wizard lieutenant Leska is marching an army with Gate Pass as the target. The city is not letting anyone in or out. Messengers are arriving burned and dying. The council is rumored to be considering allowing the Ragesians entrance into the city. These are ill tidings indeed.

My link to the resistance Nelson Farcry setup a meeting at his home. Here I met with some other resistance members. The others were Belsay a human magic user of some kind, Kirouka Half-Orc warrior, a full Orc brute known as Grobb, and a hooded drow named Slithe. My first impressions were mixed. They seemed capable enough at first glance in a combat situation but if we were to do anything beyond scare the shit out of someone or bash heads I might be better going on alone.

We learn from Nelson that the owner of the Poison Apple Pub Trehan Finner has been captured and that inquisitors may now have him. And now the pub is where we are to meet someone by the name of Torrent. Apparently she is a member of the resistance and has a mission for this motley group.

We find the Poison Apple Pub and are let in by Torrent. She is a striking woman with white hair…apparently a cleric as well. She confirms the news and rumors of an army on the march and it could arrive within a day. Torrent needs us to find a gnome named Rivereye Badgerface. Apparently he can be found at the Depositary.

Unfortunately Rivereye Badgerface is a jumpy sort and his contact with the resistance Peppin Tallman is dead. So we must convince him to trust us and then somehow find a way to get out of the city. Once out of the city we are to travel to the city of Lyceum with a message.

Our assets include Torrent, a Signet Ring that belonged to Peppin, a pass phrase of the resistance night shines brightly, a potential contact on the council named Erdan Menash, and our own abilities.

We have agreed to find Badgerface first. And so it begins…
