Kingmaker

isle of the lizard king

Sailing up to a palisided hummock, the party gains entry to a small village of lizard folk. Entering upon the grounds of trade but having nothing they were willing to give up the party leaves, promising to return with a boat full of meat. The Cheif Vesket gives the party on of his Blood caimens named Harry as a sign of good faith. Lizard folk arnt evil.

Hunting 4 deer and returning to the lizard folk the party make strong diplomatic inroads, spending the night in one of the mud huts. They learn of a small boy(tig tigwiller/tannersen) being held and tortured. The party is nearly as outraged by the treatment of this boy as the common lizardfolk are at the fact thier god Stisshak(who visited and attempted to scare you) wont let them eat him. Instead he insists on new and cruel torments for the boy(spoiling the meat). The party rescues the boy and returns him home to Horsepile.  

 

Back home, a bard Grigori is enthralling the masses with anti government nonsense. Some of his reteric is dealt with but he will surly be up to more trouble in the days ahead. A week of town hall meetings has been proposed to combat this new internal threat.

Begining the session on the banks of Candlemere, the party decides to return home to secure a boat. Exploring a hex to the west, a crazy naked dude and his cat jumps the party. He is quickly overwhelmed and subdued. He had no possessions on his person except a whip, a sling, and a desiccated hand. He was returned to Horsepile and kept in the dungeons of the castle. 

It seemed like a good time to manage the kingdom for a week. The Kid scouts were formed to help teach and care for children of the area under the care of Jhod. Kundal a barbarian is found and employed as a camp councilor for the Kid scouts. 

Another body turned up, perhaps killed by lycanthrope. Though the full moon is past and attacks seem to have ended. Precautions have been set up for next month. 

 

Rumor of a bard making inroads to the town are abound but he could not be found. 

A week later, the party set sail to investigate the creepy island and tower on the Candlemere. It was creepy. There were some languages that no one knew. Rumor and knowlege checks suggest it is haunted by a will-o-wisp. 

The session ending after venturing upstream on the Murque river.

Ye settled up with the gnomes, learning they are cartographers. Farmer was seen as a C3PO like creature after curing them of nasty kobold wounds. Ye traded landmarks and went on yer merry way. 

Stumbling into a nasty old hut atop a hummuck, ye met an old crone. She confused Dirc with Jerry the Stag Lord and complained a lot about the noise coming from up north. Ye promptly dispatched the Old Bedlame and her pumpkin headed guard. Her only crime was working her feminine charms on farmer. You ending the night on the banks of Lake Candelmere. 

 

(rumor that ye hear in the future: the old bedlame was going to help the town )

They handedly dispatched  worg and dispersed his pack.

assault on the stag lord
assault on the stag lord

You began with B'ylanna acquiring intel on the fort layout via drones. Then, shrinking her and sending her in for a closer look, you discovered a field of zombies surrounded the area. falling back for more recon, you charmed some straggler bandits and learned of a crazy old man and that the Stag Lord has put out the call for troops to return to base. 

A new yackity sacks attempt is made on the fort. The party alchemist manages to blow a hole in the wall and you get into a secret hatch. Unfortunately, the zombies don't cooperate and leave the fort alone. The party's first death comes when Tahlrath accidently stored his sword in an already wounded witch Arkadi while in combat with Nugruh the Mad. 

 

Retreat and recover are the name of the game. After Jhod is able to get Arkadi back on her feet, the party plots for siege. After waylaying and "convincing" bandits to stay away from the fort, the Stag lord sends out a lieutenant Akrios. He does not live long.

The group makes a grisly statue of corpses within sight of the fort. This prompts the final 2 lieutenants to meet them on the battle field. after a tough scrape the party manages victory but at the cost of the alchemist Atrilai. The Stag Lord and pose' hunt them, pursuing into the woods. Stumbling upon Inquisitor Dirc they make their last stand after many hours of chase.  The Stag Lord is no more.
