Belziat & the 3 Saints

Trouble in Westford

[Yell at me if I forgot something important/funny]

The party finds itself amongst the guards and their captain Jack Hawkins as they head to the bars. Hawkins feels himself indebted to the party for their help, and offers them a night of celebration on his tab! The night starts off with everyone (except Aravir) having a round of a specialty ale called, “Sabbath,” which is a magical brew which robs the imbiber of his ability to speak common as he becomes more drunk.

Seight and Jamison enter a drinking contest, with plans to enter a tournament afterwards. Alvin decides to look after them, but get distracted by the man playing the piano. Belial, Foostus and Erza go to gamble and fucking Greg feels the need to chaperone them. Aravir chills and watches the drinking contest.

The drinking contest goes on for several rounds, alternating contests of chugging speed and endurance. Jamison excels at the contests of chugging speed, much to the dismay of his liver and his endurance checks, while Seight takes the slow and steady route. Eventually only a hammered Jamison, Seight, an Orc and another tanked human remain. Jamison and the other human promptly fallout of the running, and Seight, having won the most rounds up to this point chooses Endurance for the sudden death round. Shot after of Dragonfire Whiskey is consumed until Seight finally loses his to the Orc across the table. He drunkenly drops his coin purse between the fall Seight and Jamison. Aravir spies this and picks it up, while Jamison and Seight fail to even notice Aravir. Aravir elects to give it back the Orc, who shouts at him in Orcish and then gets sad when Aravir runs away.

Erza opts to play blackjack, while Belial and Foostus play craps, and Greg opts to watch like he’s everyone’s fucking mom. Erza chats up the dwarf dealer, regaling him with the truth of the rumors about Elves and their massive pansexual orgies. He fails to come up with a way to cheat at cards, and in the process both he and Greg fail to notice the dealer cheating. He gives up after several losses.

Belial and Foostus realize they have no idea how to bet on craps. Belial realizes he can try and discretely modify the dice rolls with his force powers. He is too afraid of getting caught to use it for the most part. Instead he displays his hidden gambling addiction, leaving Foostus behind and betting most of his money. He somehow comes out ahead and leaves as Alvin enters.

Alvin after sitting and bugging the piano player, Pate, saw Greg and got terminally sad. He entered the craps table to try and cure his sadness, and the dealer advises that a 200 gold bet is the usual cure for his level of sadness. He bets, loses, goes to bed.

Jamison and Seight struggle against the language barrier to try and beg Hawkins for money to enter the tournament. They both fail, and end up taking another drink before being sent on their way to the tournament.

Fucking Greg enraged at the fact that the Piano Playing Pate only knows 3 songs moves to threaten him. He then bitches out when Westford soldiers even start to move to Pate’s aid.

Jamison takes on a classic gladiator wielding a net and trident, and proceeds to get netted and trident-ed. After being impaled by the trident he grabbed a hold of his foe and proceeded to pummel him, crushing him despite his piteous cries and dagger stabs.

Seight drops out of the tournament in the intreats of time. Jamison drops out, out of fear upon witnessing his second round opponent, a massive dragonborn wielding a bastard sword.

With everyone gathered up again, Hawkins on the verge of buying everyone another round, realizes his wallet is gone! He believes he sees the thief run out the bar. A short chase ensues with Aravir, Greg, and Belial following him. Finally the thief is cornered like a rat in an alley. And when some sober light is shone on the situation, the thief is revealed to actually be, a rat. Worse the coin purse was already empty. Depressed, Hawkins slumps up in the alley. Belial fashions some trash in to a crude blanket for him and departs.

Belial purchases a premium room with his earnings. There is a woman and a glass of milk waiting in the room when he and Seight arrive. Belial takes the woman, Seight takes the milk, pours it on himself and passes out. Jamison displays with skill and grace, his ability to pass out in an alley unmolested. Aravir attempted to predict the weather and failed horribly, remaining adamant that it would rain on a clear night. Everyone else gets to sleep without incident.

The next day a much more serious and grumpy Hawkins meets the party and gives them a rundown of the plan to kidnap Galladus. The party would be disguised as noblemen and merchants, amongst the actual merchants and noblemen that frequent the town hall. Hawkins would give Galladus a fake payment, when Galladus realized the deception the party would spring from their disguises and grab him.

In reality, Galladus did not show up alone, but instead with the Primal Terrors, the 12th Squad of the Bloodbound 13. He proceeded to toy with Hawkins and leave without even looking at the false payment. Cerebys (two-headed, AND TWO-ARMED guy) locked the party in, while his partner Demora (banshee-bitch) tapped into everyone’s minds and knocked out all of the real nobles and merchants revealing the party. Cerebys quickly began his assault my leap-pouncing and mauling Aravir L4D style. Foostus then runs up starts to aide the more vulnerable adventurers up top, while Aravir and eventually fucking Greg jump ship to fight Demora down starts. After controlling Aravir and having him shoot his comrades, Demora gets focused down hard downstairs. Meanwhile upstairs Belial and Cerebys brawl and see who can crash who into more surfaces, while Erza and his various summons watch and occasionally take opportunity attacks. Belial eventually loses this exchange, as his unconscious body is thrown against the far wall. Greg keeps touching boys.

With Demora finally dead, Cerebys eventually loses control and enters his ‘awakened’ state, assuming the form of a three-headed hell hound. He decimates the party with his 3 different breath attacks. During this assault, Hawkins briefly loses control and reveals the fact that he is a werewolf by assuming hybrid form. Foostus is very nearly killed as all three heads squabble over him like a piece of meat. Despite Jamison’s best efforts, Aravir gets the KB on Cerebys, bringing the mythical creatures kill count to 1 Kraken vs. 1 Cerebus.

Before the party can even gather and heal its wounded (because Fucking Greg once again in another sudden moment of insanity decided that pacifism was bullshit and he wanted to, “Kill some bitches”, was vomiting his heart out), Hawkins rushes to unbar the door. The door is shattered by a lightning bolt of sorts that strikes Hawkins through the shoulder. He is wounded grievously, though not fatally and Seight drags him along. The town is a scene of destruction as a few unknown Crown Hunters are running rampant destroying everything to get at the party. One is wrapped almost entirely in fetters, save for a single arm, and the other seems to be surrounded by a shroud of smoked, and more ‘lightning bolts’ fly in from somewhere distant, turning entire buildings to rubble.

Hawkins hastily leads the party down a few alleys and down an underground passage to escape the city. Outside the city, Direwolf, Teluga Tolos, and horses for the rest of the party await them. They ride away from Westford as fast as possible, the thought that they seemed doomed to be alone in the wilderness for the next Onslaught, loomed in the back of their minds…

A Grand Recap of The Story Thus Far

Since it’s been awhile here a short recap of our campaign’s entire story so far, in case you’ve missed that aspect while playing:

The story begins in Crynov, a great and isolated continent made of up of 3 countries each ruled by a great and powerful king. Two different groups of fresh out of military academy cadets are sent to the mountains bordering Grond and Covost to clear up some bandits and rescue two different nobles they had apparently captured. The group from Covost consisted of Jamison Wallace, Alvin, Aravir Sorendil, Falcor Midon, and Gerry while the other group from Grond consisted of Seight Blizzaga, Belial, and Foostus.

Both parties eventually meet, and after much trouble discover that the stronghold contained neither bandits nor the Nobles they were sent to save. There is however, an abundance of demon worshiping kobolds and danger. Some of which kill poor Gerry. The party finds out from a man named Gustav that they all were supposed to share his fate. They were sent on a suicide mission by the Kings. Before dying he suggests they head to Belghast to find “The Bleeding Eye”, a secret organization that could shelter them.

Once in Belghast the party dicks about, kinda looking for the Bleeding Eye but finding nothing. Seight makes friends with a tremendously old man, Crazy Jim, who is the only one to even recognize the symbol. The next morning everyone is either kidnapped or finds their way to the Bleeding Eye’s base. Everyone passes their respective Trials (some with more ease than others) and each one becomes a member of the The Bleeding Eye .

They train and learn much for three weeks. They learn the Bleeding Eye is a secret organization dating back to the Second Age, after a civil between the now Kings ancestors, and the Commune, a group who opposed the Monarchy, ravaged Crynov. They were setup to monitor the three Kings to make sure they never abused their power. If this should happen the Commune would be relieved from its exile in Shin Sekai. For detail see: War of Ideals

The party is sent on a rescue mission to save a Bleeding Eye member from another branch from a little farming village called Phira. On the way they are assaulted by “wheat demons”, cultists and eventually a giant flesh monster, as they find the town overrun. The town’s portly mayor, the venerable Todd Johnson, offers the party a reward to save his town. They also meet traveling pacifist priest and boy-toucher, Greg Ganitari, who joins them to save the town. They clear out the cultists and rescue the Bleeding Eye member, Argus.

Upon return to Belghast, Greg passes his trial and is initiated into the guild. It is then decided that Falcor is unstable and needs to taken out. A massive debt ensues about how to do this. Alvin heroically tries to end the debate by taking Falcor in the woods alone to deal with him. After a few hours Alvin’s disappearance is noticed and Aravir, Belial and Seight search for him. Aravir dispatches Falcor near immediately and the matter is resolved. Meanwhile, Jamison is “porning out” with their leader, Zaalbag.

The party is sent on a recon mission to find out who is moving through the town of Rhinefast to Covost’s capital, Agreia. Before departing Alvin purchases a camel, who he names Teluga Tolos. After trying several different plans, the finally stealth bum-rush the barracks with the help of Jamison’s brother Merrick. They defeat and interrogate Spandme, one of the king’s officials who tells them that the Three Kings are all meeting in secret in Agreia soon. Knowing they are no match for even a single of the three Kings they rush back to warn the Eye, wondering what this meeting could mean.

Upon their return to Belghast the town is in a state of martial law and none of the Bleeding Eye’s members are anywhere to be found. Worse they’ve all become wanted men and must avoid drawing too much attention to themselves. Zaalbag finds the party and tells them that they need to assassinate the 4 commanders of the occupying forces before the Bleeding can make its escape the next day. The party scrambles and takes out 3 of the 4. Jamison beats down Melisa Chin and Greg, pretending to be a medic for the tournament poisons her to finish the job. Crazy Jim, some may say, Seight’s only friend ends up a casualty of this plan. The party loots the Bleeding Eye’s hideout in preparation for the next day.

The party holds off waves of soldiers, luring them into the hideout before it is collapsed and flooded by the river. They swim through the river and mount horses to swiftly flee the city, a daring escape that nearly causes Seight to drown. On horse back, they are pursued and attacked by Captain Commander Grimmfyre, who slays Jamison Jr. with a meteor. The party defeat him and proceed to Agreia.

Once in Agreia, the go about rooting out whoever betrayed their hideout. The party decides it was Argus and kill him during the unveiling of their new hideout in the capitol. They are then sent to retrieve an artifact known as the Log, required to sail to Shin Sekai. This is so that if they find the Kings are abusing their power at the meeting they can sail to Shin Sekai and summon the commune.

The party passes several trials put together by The Sage of the Tower, an ageless wizard who records Crynov’s history and keeps many of its treasures. They are eventually joined by his apprentice Erza, a bright young Eladrin wizard, who is sent to help them deal with some intruders. At the top of the lighthouse, the party encounters two strange men with piercing gold eyes and strange mutations who are looking for the same thing they are. They defeat them and retrieve two cards with strange symbols on them, off of their assailants bodies.

The party returns to the capitol, and sneaks into the meeting. Looking down on a meeting of some of the most powerful people in Crynov. The party overhears that the King’s plan to start war so that they may thin out the noble population and silence the talk of dissent against the Kings currently prevalent across the land, the likes of which, hadn’t been seen since days of The Commune and The War of Ideals. Seight notices his brother Vesayo is one of Piro Sangfroid, Myren’s king’s guards. Worse, Vesayo notices him. Both halves of the party find themselves pursued. The half with Erza, Foostus, Aravir, Belial escape their minotaur pursuer, with a bit of finesse and quick thinking on the part of Erza. The other group finds themselves assailed by Vesayo, Seight’s brother who isolates Seight and wrecks his shit while the others try and break through to help. In the end, they are saved by Zaalbag who is dueling Vesayo as the party runs out and more of the Kings’ guards run in.

The party escapes to the port of Ao Kaigan, only to receive the grim news from Weber that Zaalbag and Mora were slain buy them time. Zaalbags body had been pinned to the castle walls by a giant icicle by Vesayo himself. The find themselves pursued again and rush through the docks to begin their voyage to Shin Sekai to warn the Commune of the Kings’ plan. A thin figure passes them on the docks and whispers something to Alvin. It isn’t till they’re sailing away that history buff Alvin realizes he’d seen that man’s picture somewhere. That could’ve been Rimuto Ravenhart, the Commune’s original leader, who would now be about 550 years old. The party sails away into the sunset.

…And into imminent starvation because of their ineptitude at sailing ships. They are on the brink of starvation when Alvin sacrifices his beloved Teluga Tolos, who in some fights got more of Alvins heals than the party did, to fed the party. Refreshed by camel meat, the party sails on to Shin Sekai, where they are assaulted by pirates and then a kraken.

Upon landing in the port of Russet, Jamison makes friends with a dockworker, Micke Bilgewater. The party finds that Shin Sekai is by all accounts, kind of a shithole, plagued by period attacks, known as Onslaughts, by demons or creatures from the Shadowfell. The place is also deprived of any influence from the Feywilds, so elves, eladrin, gnomes, and creatures of the like are a rare sight. And worst off no one has even heard of the Commune.

The party (fucking Greg) also has a run-in with The Organization, a secretive group that uses some kind of super soldiers, known colloquially as Crown Hunters to defend the towns from the Onslaughts, for a price. Some of said super soldiers are incredibly suspicious of strangers, and rough up Greg. The party helps defend the town from the Onslaught along with these Crown Hunters.

The party wakes the next morning, to some bad news, courtesy of Jamison’s new friend Micke. The Crown Hunters are moving to capture and interrogate them. Micke admits he’s more than he let on, speaking of some underground syndicate that tries to find information on The Organization. He tells the party that if their going to find out about this Commune anywhere it’d be at Oasis. He all they need to do to find their way there is stop in Westford and help his friend Hawkins with a plot.

In a panicked attempt to make a clean getaway, the party burns down some stables and make a mad dash for it. Instead they are met by three powerful Crown Hunters, who the defeat before fleeing the city.

Arriving in Westford the party attempts to find this “Hawkins” only to find there are three men named Hawkins in Westford. Eventually however, they discover the Hawkins they are after. He is the captain of the guard in Westford and a member of the Syndicate. As such he knows more about the Organization than the party had been able to discern up to this point.

As for the mission he needed help with, he plans to kidnap one of the Organization’s Operators, the members who give the Crown Hunters their missions and the ones who collect the Organizations debts and actually deal with the towns in Shin Sekai. For this he’ll need the party’s help.

In the mean time the party is to pose as foreign mercenaries brought in to train the guard. And after a hard day of training the party is head for the bar with their new friend Jack Hawkins and the city’s guards, fully prepared to enact Hawkins dangerous plot on the morrow…

The Party Arrives in Westford
Would the Real Hawkins Please Stand Up?

The group forages onto Westford. For whatever reason, the party senses people are following them a few days back. They see that the town is triangular and that the guards patrolling the walls are heavily armored. They spend a while just trolling around figuring out what’s going on in this thread. Jamison goes to the inn and figures out that the next onslaught is in a week. Alvin hops on Seight’s back (with Belial in tow) and they find a guy who’s wandering the town willing to talk. After lots of really creepy innuendo, they find out he’s the “town informant.” They creepily go down into his basement, which happens to be a well-furnished basement. They get the information (they find a Measter Hawkins, a slumlord, that fits Alvin’s “kick-ass” description) after Alvin agrees to be the info vendor’s (Veris) pet for the night.

In the other side of town, Jamison finds of a Jack Hawkins, a guy who trains guards and wields a great-axe. He thanks the guy that gave him the info and then talks to the bar wenches. He hires all three of the women to keep him company for the night.

Foostus passes out in a shitty inn in the slums for 5 gold pieces.

Greg tries healing people until he kills a man, pukes everywhere, hides the body, and happens to get into the same room as Foostus. He does manage to heal Foostus in the night and Foostus repays him by trying to attack him when he wakes up.

Alvin helps Veris’ black cousin get laid by formulating a great story and then sits at the bar with Belial and and Seight.

Aravir trances on top of a building in the slums disguised as a human and has to run away from two guards running after him with clubs. He has to pop phasestep to get away.


NEXT MORNING

Seight, Belial, Alvin try to analyze the map to try to figure out what they should do to track down their Hawkins. They meet Jamison who debriefs them about Jack Hawkins, but he also gets the time they need to leave incorrect. They decide to split the party to check into the different Hawkinses- It’s Belial, Jamison, Foostus, Greg and Seight and Alvin in two separate parties.

Seight and Alvin eventually find the Big bald dude in the bar they thought he would be in. Seight eventually buys him a drink and talks to him enough to know that he wasn’t the droid they were looking for.

The other big party goes to the barracks to try to get to the other Hawkins. They find he can’t be actively reached, so they leave a message. A guard comes in around an hour to come get Jamison to bring him and the party in. He talks pretty nonchalantly to them- we don’t know his angle. He explains the The Blood-Bound Thirteen- they are made up of 26 individuals, in pairs, spread across Shin Sekai. They are the best bet to defend against the onslaught. They are the strongest 26 people on the island. One of them is after us for some reason. THe card from the dark horse guy carries a card with their symbol. We don’t know the purpose other than that the dark horse means they are trying to become part of the Bloodbound 13. They count up from 13 in the ascending order. We defeated two of them in the tower that one time. Squad 12 is pursuing us- known as the Primal Terrors.

Hawkins wants to capture one of the members or The Organization operators, by the name of Galadus, to figure out why they’re powerful. The Crown Hunters are the enforcers. The Operators are people that collect all that money, and are different entirely. He thinks the town can overthrow the sway of The Organization and they can defend against The Organization for at least a little while.

The group has to train guards in order to establish a cover and stuff.

Aravir goes Mano y Mano with the ranged squad captain and bests him at this hardest challenges, including shooting from one corner of the town to the other and playing a epic game of bowman.

The melee bros have a series of physical exercises; Jamison consistently eats shit. Seight and Foostus do well. They then fight waves of the guards to demonstrate their prowess. Seight wins, he just wins, defeating all the guards. With that he Foostus gain the right to train the troops.

Much Delayed Bonus XP

The Onslaught Ends, The Party GTFO's

adventure log till’ i die, nigga,

After the party complete their mandatory 5 minute rest, and Erza bids his fond farewells to Maw #3724. Before they depart for the fountain, Byzair and Skjor sprout wings and fly off to deal with a new airborne foe heading for the town hall.

As the parties move to the middle of the town, they come upon the fountain, which is promptly consumed by a swarm of demons. The party engages and watches as Jamison is promptly snared and brought into the central rape-zone of the swarm.
Erza cant read his tome and is confused as to why his summons wont respond, instead he opts to make some nightmares erupt. But the demons don’t give a fuck because they love that shit, and also because Erza cant aim.
Aravir fires a firestorm arrow into his foot and lights himself and Greg on fire, because fuck you, Greg. the other arrow makes it there.
Foostus starts swinging his axe and drinks some life, and cuts some bitches.
Belial drops a mother-fucking anchor on the swarm, looks like they don’t give a fuck.
Alvin, makes a funny joke. (TomMAWrow, get it?) he mis-paints a bullseye.
Greg is a homo and starts kissing boys, like for real, he summons them and gives them chocolates in return for sexual favors. Fuckin’ Greg.
Jamison trys to escape the rape-zone, but the demons see him there, drinkin’ dat flask. He narrowly breaks the snare, but he’s still sitting in the capital of Sodomy-Ville.
Alvin makes Foostus race the arrow and that shit connects. Foostus is fucking drunk and misses like a town-drunk
Aravir is so handsome that the swarm cant handle that shit. Maybe he fires some firestorm arrows into it, but thats less important; note his long silvery locks of hair and his swarthy charm. Forget that he does 3 damage and lights Jamison on fire, but whatever; he’s too fucking handsome to give a fuck.
Erza misses, because he too is busy kissing boys, Also Jamison leaves Non-Consensual sex zone.
Foostus uses Tide of Blood!
It’s Less Than Super Effective!
Greg stops touching boys to heal our party. Note that he he does this begrudgingly.
Jamison rains some blows, it’s underwhelming.
The swarms wants some of dat dagron-born; and it has it’s way with him.
The swarm also sees how homosexual greg is and decides to purge him from this realm. They bring him into the bathing-suit-area-touching-zone.
Alvin prunes the swarm with some kind of eldrich magics.
Aravir remains relatively useless. He sits there pouting and ponders fey-stepping home to cry on his mothers lap.
Erza makes some nightmares erupt. Again, the demons don’t give a fuck.
Foostus rages out and crits like a boss. Props Doomhawk.

Look at this battery, its about as useful as Greg, which is to say it isn’t at all. Swear to god, if that bitch at steak n’ shake doesn’t give me half off tonight, ill end her.

Seight opts to be a hero and stay in the Non-Consensual sex zone, or maybe he just likes demons a lil’ too much. He bashes at the swarm from the inside.

The swarm continues to FSU, nearly consuming Greg at one point, before being felled by an Erza storm pillar.

The Crown Hunters proceed to the bar having slain their foe, and the party, minus Jamison and Aravir, follow and pass out at the inn. Aravir jumps on a roof and watches the barracks. Jamison opts to try and sleep in the stables again, making a stealth check.

Jamison is woken by the sound of his bad check, in the form of guards hitting him with a fine for trespassing. This minor, 50 gold fine, combined with Jamison’s incredible stupidity, spawn the most idiotic chase scene in the history of this campaign. The chase begins with Jamison kicking a hole in the wall, the chase ends with a clutch distraction by Aravir and Jamison jumping hiding in a hole.

Jamison emerges from his hole, and tries to sneak through town. He quickly realizes the “man smelling of horse-shit” description, narrows the search for him down pretty easily. He sneaks to the ocean by the docks and hops in. He nearly drowns after washing off his shit smell, only to be saved by Mick. After making a better bad joke to redeem his last attempt, he gives Jamison a disguise and informs him of impending danger. Tells him the party needs to get out of town fast, as “one of the Blood-Bound 13” is coming for them. Tells the he hasn’t been completely honest, and that they need to do him a favor. They need to proceed along the road to Oasis, and stop in Westford, find a man named Hawkins, and recite a phrase Jamison may or may not remember.

Around the same time Erza rises in his bath robes, and while strolling down to the bar to get his morning milk, he hears Byzair and Skjor talking to another man he does not recognize. The hears that the three are to keep the party in town for awhile, but should not interfere when the execution squad moves in to kill the Crynovians. The man seems especially fearful of interfering after mentioning that the executioners would be none other than Squad 12, “The Primal Terrors”. Erza proceeds to calmly get his milk, nodding to the Crown Hunters. As he gets to the stairs however, he shits himself and frantically runs to warn everyone of the impending danger.

Eventually everyone is in Seight’s room throwing out stupid plans and being reeeeal indecisive. Various good, bad, awful, somewhat ok plans were proposed. Leaving one at a time to avoid being followed, starting a fire in the inn and leaving the chaos, releasing the animals in the stables. The two Crown Hunters appear, having overheard the idiotic commotion, they warn the party to not disturb the town and that they should stay put. In the end, some bastard, half-cooked, dumb version of a combination of all plans emerges as Aravir feysteps to his wolf, and Jamison and Erza go outside to the stables. Erza mount the direwolf with Aravir who sets the stables ablaze with firestorm arrows, Jamison scares the horses away. Byzair and the third man, who Greg would recognize as the man who raped his shit in an alleyway, walk up to engage them. Skjor is blocking the stairway in the inn as a long and painful encounter beings.

Skjor begins the encounter by cutting through Seight, Belial, and Alvin. Jamison moves to attack Greg’s assailant, who announces himself as Alexander Flamberg. Byzair goes ice form and starts chucking icicles. Seight unexpected shield bashes Skor hard, and Foostus jumps out the window and crit Thunderhooves rages all over Byzair. He later rage strikes the shit out of him, effectively soloing him down to half health. When bloodied, the area around Byzair becomes painfully cold. Alexander ruins Jamisons day with a flurry of blows (not a Jamison flurry of blows…) and each of his gigantic sword swing releases a fire wave. Greg also “heroically” tumbles out the window to aid the party outside, but remarks, “God I like boys” as he lands prone, unable to aid shit.

Belial does some bashing Skjor into a room, and Alvin lands his Relentless Wounding, effectively rocking Skjor’s shit. Skjor flails his swords at Seight in protest. Greg healer’s mercy’s the shit out of the party outside. Foostus gets kited by Byzair, Alexander continues to FSU. Jamison gets up and may or may not have done things.

At somepoint later Belial finished off Skjor and Seight stumbled out of a window quite gracefully landing prone and taking some damage. Byzair ice nova’s Erza, the Maw, and Jamison, killing the Maw and reaching havoc. Byzair dies shortly after. Alexander does an all-around slash which cleaves through the party and throws out a massive fire wave. Greg takes this attack the worst, going down, almost completely dead with ongoing damage that leaves him with 1 turn or 1 more attack, to live. Alvin heroically heal checks the Greg, fuckin’ Greg, back up, having to substitute one of having to use one of his surges because Greg, fuckin’ Greg, was out. In a last ditch effort, Alexander flies into high into the air, and comes down on Seight dealing the most amount of damage that has come from an enemy so far, instantly downing Seight. Alexander goes down to a Greg Scared Flame, and what followed was a most joyous puke as Greg finally got revenge for his alleyway non-consensual sex extravaganza.

The party loots, Wyvernscale Armor, A Cloak of Survival +2, and An Amulet of Life +2, and 3000g. They get the hell out of town without further incident.

The Onslaught

Jamison just kinda wanders around town. Aravir descends gracefully from the roof, and sulks in the shadows like a little bitch (Fuck you greg). Aravir smells Jamison from around the corner, and they get together whilst still knowing nothing about the night before. Foostus keeps crying… Seight goes to the bar and sees some cloaked guys like the people he’s been dealing with. Jamison and Aravir head to the boat, with Aravir lagging behind the smelly bastard. They meet Mick down there. Mick eloquently insults how bad Jamison smells. Aravir tells Mick some bad jokes while Jamison goes to talk with/collect Erza. Seight sits down at a table in the bar, and sees that the cloaked person is someone who hasn’t been seen before. Foostus sits at the bar drinking. Jamison and gang come into the bar, and Greg tells Jamison not to act like he knows the four of us. Jamison fucks up telling everyone to act like they don’t know us. Then Greg explains last night to Jamison. The guy comes in to talk to Seight. They talk about some boring shit (Hey, fuck you Greg). Something, something initiative, or bloody-crown hunters (These men are Initiates in an order known as the Blood Crowned Hunters, or Crown Hunters for short). They enforce an organization or something (They are the enforcers for The Organization, and as such are the ones who defend villages against the Onslaught). Greg tells the guy he thinks their organization sucks. Seight makes up a story about how the other guys aren’t affiliated with us. Foostus looks for some drugs because he’s just “so sad.” He then buys 12 W0ndershrooms and 7 buffouts. Everyone prepares for the onslaught. Greg is traded for Foostus in a last minute deal.

The Onslaught
Left Wall: Seight, Alvin, Belial, and Foostus.
Belial knocks the rushed big asshole prone like a bitch. Belial gets hit by the swarm of bat demons, and gets RAPED. The guards shoot at the big guy, one of four hits… Demons rush the wall.

Foostus: “Seight! Is our big guy bleeded??” Seight gets knocked down by the big guy, never mind, not quite. Boss takes 37 damage due to another jello crit. Foostus does some cute damage. Alvin does a thing with some stuff against the big bro, seemed to be pretty cool. Stuff happens. (Fuck you Greg)

Minions run toward the gate and surround the big fag. Guards attack minions, killing one and leaving one cloud. Greg gets devoured by a swarm of demons a little bit, and they hang around afterward. Big guy stomps over storm pillar for 16 damage. He then climbs up the gate, standing rather precariously at the top. He takes two swings at Jamison hitting twice, dealing 4 damage total. Greg lands denunciation on the big guy debuffing the fuck out of him. A guy kills two minions with fireballz.

The Flight, A Reunion, and Farewells
"And we sail off into the sunset"

Our party picks up where we left off. Everyone made it to their balconieszz. The glass ceiling is discussed. The party sees cloaked men below. Seight’s arm begins to burn, indicating that his long, lost brother lies below. The king of the country speaks of an alliance between the kingdoms; a war to stop a war. The war shall rage for 3 months or until the nobles only account for 5% of the population again (they’re currently at 12-15%). Queen Maria, shifting her massive girth, has a troubling thought. Her pathetic, woman mind thinks that the beasts, currently controlled by the Kings, will break free and roam the land unchecked, killing at will. The smart men think she is stupid because she is. They make a remark about the Bleeding Eye and then Seight’s brother looks in his direction and his arm burns. Foostus sees a female minotaur and falls in love, then falls out of love because she is fat. The two parties begin to head out as quickly as possible.

The large, female minotaur traps the stealth group and declares that she plans to kill them all. She is dual wielding mauls in her identical hands (a left and right, not a left, left combo). Seight’s brother corners the bluff group and begins to assault the party with attacks. He waves his hands around and ice stalactites come down from the ceiling and push the party back (minus Seight) and set up a one-one-one battle. Aravir attacks first, and attempts to sling a frost arrow the minotaur’s way in order to slow her down. Despite his weak damage, he hits and she is slowed. Seight’s brother explodes a whole-mess-o’-shit with a bunch of fire. The majority of the party is slowed. A ball of ice is flung at Seight and is a successful strike. Turns out a certain overactive imagination made this guy way too fucking powerful. Seight’s brother also slams down on the ground and causes icy patches to cover the ground, shitting on everyones plans. The female minotaur yells for guards after advancing on the group. Jamison gets the fuck out. Alvin attempts to cut through the ice. Urza (or Erza as he is known) puts down a Storm Pillar and his Maw, champion of everything, to block the hall way. Seight falls in front of his brother but still manages to get an attack off. The minotaur realizes that Urza has blocked the hall way and cuts the party off. The bluff party attempts to cut through the ice. Jamison sprints towards the exit (as Aravir has already bailed on the the party). He slides everyone out of the way with ‘everybody move’ and makes it to the door, but can’t get through it.

Seight gets ran through with an ice spike, with reference to FF8 (plus 10 DM points) and then he gets impaled again taking 50 points of damage in a single attack. Seight calls out his brother for being a douchebag. Greg (fucking Greg) does 2 damage to the ice. Urza attempts to disguise himself as more guards flood the area. The bluff party decides to try and run through the adjacent rooms in order to get to Seight quickly. Jamison flees the battle and the remaining forces corner Foostus. Foostus manages to make it out of the battle before shit gets real. Urza’s trick has worked and the guards think that he is one of them. Urza does some more crazy wizard tricks and makes his way towards the door safely. Seight pulls his brother towards him and the misses a bunch of times but in that struggle he breaks free of the ice. GFGreg attacks the ice some more, despite its incredible reflex defense. Seight’s brother shifts back and summons a dragon (thanks for thinking up this guy) and Seight falls down. Alvin crits the lock off of its chain, exploding it. In the room awaiting, the party (minus a down Seight) is Zalbag. GFG gets yelled at for not healing his party. Belial bursts into the room and attempts to confront Seight’s brother, but fails. A party of guards amass behind our heroes as Greg runs through the door containing the rest of his party, fear in his eyes. Zalbag portals into the room with Seight and slams into Seight’s brother, knocking him back and saving Seight from a chilly death. Zalbag tells Alvin to grab Seight and run. The party is filled with a sense that Zalbag will hold them all off. Alvin heals Seight, but doesn’t attempt to grab him, and then runs towards the door. Belial continues to pin him into the wall. Greg tops off Seight before he heads towards the exit as well. Zalbag continues generally badassry and lights his sword aflame before driving it into Seight’s brother. Seight’s bronamath pushes Zalbag back a bit. Seight rises and hears the sound of guards knifing through the ice behind him. He attempts to run towards the exit but he falls again on the ice. Zalbag grabs onto Seight’s brother as the melee continues. Seight hops back up and runs towards the exit again, but yet again we learn that ice is slippery. Guards flood the room, death seems to be inc. Alvin uses ghost sound to make the sound of cracking ice behind the guards in attempt to distract them before heeding out. Belial runs back towards his IRL brosef right as Zalbag shouts “get the fuck out” and teleports Seight’s brother out with him. Seight gets up and rolls some demon rolls on his way out, coating everything in ice. Then both Belial and Seight make it out.

Both parties make it out of the castle and GFG once again BLUFFS THE FUCK OUT OF SOMEONE (they may or may not have shit themselves). The bluff party makes it out safely. The stealth party attempts to make it out, but they get caught sliding back down the rope. The party stumbles, rumbles, bumbles, down the rope. Urza pulls his same tricky bullshit. Aravir splits the rope with an arrow causing the guards in pursuit to fall off the wall. The guards chase them down the alley ways. Jamison stumbles around, while everyone else with inferior athletics has no problem. Jamison eventually finds his feet and the entire party makes it out. The party mounts up and we continue hastily out of the city. At the end of the day, as the party makes camp, they realize that they are being followed. Urza puts down a skull watch in the morning and they see that it is a battalion that is following them. They decide to head south through the forest in order to try and lose them.

As they charge through the forest they see a woman whom is being chased by a group of nymphs. Our DM makes Foostus cry IRL over horse combat. The nymphs roll in and start clubbing Foostus’ horse. The mysterious woman continues to run towards the party, screaming. Urza summons his maw (which is pretty typical at this point) and he gets a bite in. Jamison rides in and gauntlets the nymph. Combat continues to rage in the forest. Foostus’ horse is downed in the fray. Alvin rides in and tries to command the maw to attack, but the maw does not understand him and instead vomits. More psychic terror is spread throughout the party as the battle continues (mind raping (just a bit)). The woman is scooped up on Aravir’s wolf as he plugs an arrow into a nymph. As the psychic terror is saved against, it spreads to the nearest person, which is terrible news. Foostus misses his rage….again. The nymphs begin to literally beat a dead horse, much to the demise of Foostus. The maw strikes again and nightmares are erupted. Jamison acrobatically leaps off of his horse and enters the fray, or at least tries to (a miss followed with a Twitch “…you got anything else?”). Seight is knocked down, but not before he gets a shield bash off. Alvin attempts to redeem the maw by having him race the arrow, but can’t land the arrow. Belial kills a nymph, which the party finds out ends the psychic damage to whomever they had it on. Another barrage of arrows slam into nymphs from Aravir. GFG stabs himself and heals Belial. Foostus appears from behind the tree, sprints around it, and then charges into the bigger pack of nymphs. GFG becomes the target of a nymphs rage as his horse gets pounded. The maw finally gets a successful attack in. Jamison is perpetually stunned. Seight starts slamming into nymphs and then ice breaths all of over them, slaying one and damaging two more in a display of skill. GFG’s horse is downed. The party begins to focus on the red whom has Alvin’s target pained on it. Arrows and maws slam into it. GFG heals his horse, remounts him, and rides back towards the party. Combat continues as blows are exchanged. Alvin dips dangerously low but gets a clutch heal off. GFG’s horse is downed again. Seight still can’t land a blow. Aravir fires an arrow into the red nymph, killing it. GFG sneaks around a heal and gets off a massive heal on Seight, like a boss. Foostus rages IRL and in game (well really only IRL), bloodying a nymph. Greg takes it as Jamison knocks green down. Belial circles back and slams into the blue and black nymphs in an attempt to save the healers. Aravir kills another nymph and GFG heals a large part of the party. Urza’s summoned dust devil runs into a pack of them…and…only hits Seight’s horse. Foostus rolls in and bloodies the blue nymph.

Combat continues as the party circles in on the last two nymphs. Belial dances around before slamming a nymph into another tree. Aravir rolls in and slams 42 damage into blue, killing it. The dust devil fails again (this will be remembered) and foostus rides in and slams the remaining nymph. Jamison slash the nymph, but doesn’t kill it. Seight remains stunned for what seems like the 100th round in a row. Alvin commanding strikes Foostus to kill this last bastard…and he crit fails. Aravir kills the last one, mopping up everything. It turns out that this woman was a succubus. Seight gets a hat that gives him even more will, so he stops getting fucking dominated/stunned.

We get to Ao Kaigan and make it to an inn. Mora and Zalbag died buying the party time, Zalbaag was killed by Seight’s brother. Suddenly the guards converge on the inn and we escape to the dock towards the ship. We find out from an old man walking down the pier that the island we are going to is full of nothing but “answers and trouble.” Alvin recognizes this man as the original leader of the commune, Rimuto Ravenhart, (who at this point in time should be roughly 550 years old) as we sail away…into the sunset…maybe…probably.

Ravenhart’s Exact Speech (For those who GAF):
“This country is about to become a living hell, and all this because one man is pulling all the strings. And until you find out who, there isn’t a damn thing you can do here. You kids try and enjoy your vacation, but take it from me, on that island, only two things are waiting for you, answers and trouble…”

ALE Gains a New Member
"I may be a pacifist, but I'll still wreck you motherfucker"

The party waits for Greg, who is decidedly useless. However, they decide that until Foostus gets crit, the encounters wont even start. So we start anyway.


Coming off of the rush of rescuing kittens we rejoin the party being greeted by the sage. He reveals that the log is an item of interest to some burglars. As such, he lends the party the assistance of his apprentice, Erza.

The party progresses up the lift, and is greeted by two men with white hair and blood red eyes. Upon realizing the party is nearby, one man sprouts wings and takes to the air, while the other brandishes a draconic arm. Jamison questions whether or not a diplomacy check would be of use.

Aravir scrambles out and crits the hovering one quickly. While Alvin marks him as a target. Foostus rushes out with a goring charge and knocks him to the ground. Seight ambles out and bellows dragon-breath followed by a bull-charge to add insult to injury. Greg stumbles out but doesn’t have the range to make any attacks. Jamison charges out towards the unhindered foe, but is caught off guard by a swipe, as the man’s arm extends throwing off his attack.

He responds with a double claw attack at Seight, leaving him slowed, rom poison. He also follows through with a critical swipe at Jamison.

Our winged foe, leaps to the air, and unfurls a gust of fire towards our heros knocking them on their respective asses and whips a fireball right into Greg’s face. Aravir tries to capitalize, but ends up firing an arrow straight into the air like a town drunk after double crit failing, (effectively pulling a Foostus). Belial double-augment force hammers both of them, knocking them prone.

Erza in his prime-time debut, makes some nightmares erupt, its pretty hot. Aravir, sure-shots one , who has a brief panic-attack and almost goes bat-shit insane. After being calmed by his ally, he regains control. Alvin marks him and Foostus rushes in, getting critically struck on his charge in. The encounter starts.

Foostus pukes and Seight gives everyone eleven temp hit-points out of the goodness of his dragon-heart. Jamison ambles around and grabs our winged foe. Shortly after, Jamison has the venom ripped from his veins and all around feels like shit, forcing him to spend a turn sulking.

After Jamisons grip is effectively rendered useless, our winged enemy soars about twenty feet into the air, followed by the summoning of a wall of fire. Belial misses and Erza sends some Astral Wasps to do his bidding, and nonchalantly summons an abyssal maw.

Aravir shoots our friend up on the ceiling, Foostus Smacks a bitch with the keyword “titties” Seight calls a bitch out and forces him to eat some khopesh. Greg “isn’t such an asshole anymore” and Jamison stops spazzing out. Our winged friend flips the fuck out and throws fireballs at everybody save for Aravir, and Alvin who nimbly dodges it, Erza’s Abyssal Maw takes a bite and Aravir knocks the winged enemy out of the air.

Foostus waddles through the fire like a man and smacks the newly-prone winged-foe. Maw makes a good-effort but doesn’t quite connect. Greg throws out a heal and misses a seal. Jamison grappling strikes and pins him to the ground.

Across the room Seight is grabbed and pile-driven in front of a terrified Aravir. Elsewhere, Jamison’s grip is broken by flailing wings and Foostus strikes at him as he fly away, Erza summons a fire-warrior and Aravir slays the airborne enemy. Alvin lodges an arrow right into the final enemy that leaves him hurting. Foostus mills around the wall of fire and charges in and dodges a swipe while puking on the way in.

The remaining enemy leaps across the room transforms fully into a demon, and mourns the loss of his friend Burgess, and whirls around striking everyone nearby. He then remembers that Aravir was the tool of his buddies demise, latches claws into him, and whips him straight into Greg, nearly killing greg. The Maw seeks revenge, and finds purchase in its endeavor. The Fire-Warrior also connects an attack. Aravir stumbles away and trades missed attacks with the monster. Alvin puts another arrow into the monster, giving everyone a plus ten to damage. Foostus pulls on his action pants and smacks the monster.

Greg heals himself and Jamison and the monster throws another shit-storm. effectively negating Greg’s healing on himself. Belial connects with psionic force and Erza finds his beloved Maw immobilized. Aravir looses two arrows into him, and Alvin save Greg from the inevitable “butt-raping”. Foostus delivers the killing blow.


We find that our foes were named Armand and Burgess, they both carried black identification cards, as well as both having a symbol on their armor that nobody can identify with any checks. The bodies are found to be human, but have demonic and draconic influences. The party packs up and heads back to the capital. Erza is forced through the trials much to everyones amusement, and passes it without worry, much to everyones chagrin.

The next day, Greg bluffs Seight, whom turns on Jamison after a ghost sound compliments of Erza. Jamison comes clean and is challenged to a drinking contest by Seight.


Mora and Weber set up drinks and the contest between Jamison, Weber and Seight begins, after five flagons everyone looks pretty good and a few more people join in as Weber falls over. Erzas unseen servants try to bring him more ale but his immense inebriation cant make any use of it, as he drops out.

After a special mug from Marshall 1st place goes to Seight, 2nd to Jamison, and 3rd to Grimm. Seight tries to scalp Jamison or something but his drunken slurring confuses Erza’s unseen servants, resulting in them bringing him a bowl as opposed to a knife, he proceeds to break on the floor. After this those three are forced to retire out of drunkenness.


The remaining group tries recon to find out more about the meeting. Foostus crits on a streetwise check to find out there is a bar in the noble district where a few guards are known to frequent. They proceed to the bar and wait for someone to come in, Greg goes to the bathroom…fucking Greg. Alvin gets kicked out, by the bartender who is apparently not fond of gnomes, and chooses to go out and hangout with camel. Foostus chills at the bar all day and fails to actually say anything to the bar babe he’s checking out for 4 hours. Alvin notices some palace guards come in and they all sit inside and try and meld with the wenches. Aravir talks to one wench and bribes her to find out information from the guards. They find out her name is Lucy and she is a fat beast. She comes back saying the guards are pigs and they bribe her more to convince the guards to head upstairs into a trap set for them to ambush. Aravir listens into the room as the man undresses and Lucy, the beast wench, knocks softly for them to ambush. Aravir bursts in and aims his bow straight at the guard’s nude packages and tells him “Not a Fucking word motherfucker”, but to no avail. Greg then comes in and says “I may be a pacifist but I’ll still wreck you motherfucker” with a crit intimidate check. He shits all over. Belial asks him about the exact time of the meeting and the patrols of the guards in the sector. He draws a map of the patrols and the meetingplace. They proceed to then surprise round the naked man in the room. Two arrows and two kinetic trawl and he is dismembered. They stuff his body parts in the dresser, take his armor and leave. Foostus gets his nut with the barmaid despite Greg trying to tell him the plan. They try and get another wench and while they argue the guard gets up and walks out. The group follows him out of the bar and attempts to ambush him in an alley. Foostus, after lasting 2 minutes, shows up downstairs and proceeds to drink more.


Out in the alley Belial kinetically shoves the drunken guard into a wall five times and Alvin forces him to submit, he intimidates information out of him in his drunken sobs and afterwards administers a drought of forgetfulness.


The next day, the group splits into two, One to infiltrate the caste walls with stealth, and the other to sneak in using stolen and re-forged guards armor, compliments of Mora.

The first team, in palace guard armor, makes their way in without much trouble, thanks to Glib Limerick, Greg talks their way in and they position themselves in prime position on their balcony,

Second team, clambers their way in, and sets their trap. Upon entering Aravir drops one immediately and Foostus rages out on some unlucky bastard. Erza taunts one onto a blast-patch, and Foostus cuts through one and steps through another. Jamison dodges a few attacks and jacks them in their jaws for missing. The party clears the rest of them out and moves on to their balcony.

Both teams are in position on the balconies and the meeting is set to start…

The Traitor & The Trials

The company finishes off Grimfire and his wyvern and attempts to see if any of his goodies are of use. Greg makes off with a crown and the party divides the rest. ALE continues to ride to the town and Jamison is forced to ride with someone due to the death of his horse, Jamison Jr. They reach Agria at about 5 pm and they are supposed to meet Zalbag at “The Urban Lumberjack”, Marshall’s new bar. They enter the bar and see that is still under construction and manage to find Zalbag. Jamison sits down at the bar (because he’s an alcoholic) and finds out there is no alcohol and is immediately sadface. Seight and Greg walk up to Zalbag, and Zalbag asks what they managed to take inside the old hideout. He’s impressed by the amount of stuff the group was able to take and allows everybody to keep one item. Greg tries to steal the bag of holding but Zalbag punches him and says bluntly “Fuck you Greg”. Aravir tries to do the same and his fate is the same as Greg’s. Zalbag reminds the company that someone is leaking information from the Bleeding Eye and it is imperative that they find out who it is. He informs the group they must interrogate each member of the clan and find out who the culprit is.

The company splits up and Group A heads to the slums to interrogate Argus, the fag they saved. Group A arrives at a bar called “The Iron Stomach” and spots Argus. Jamison feels at home with all of the shady characters and orders a drink because he is of no use for this discussion. The rest of the group starts talking with Argus. Argus tells them that his branch was almost destroyed by a traitor. He is suspicious of Weber and Grimm and is unable to keep track of their whereabouts. The group finds something off with his story. Jamison walks over to Seight and whispers into his ear that he’s horny. Seight is creeped out and they decide to leave once again and talk to the others. Jamison stays behind and will follow wherever Argus goes.

Group A (excluding Jamison) goes to talk to Mora. She says she ain’t the traitor and she thinks Grim is innocent and Argus is suspicious. She claims Weber is a pretty nice guy and is also innocent. She expresses interest in Aravir’s cock because he saved her tools from destruction.

Jamison attempts to follow Argus but is a bit too drunk to see him. He loses Argus many times but manages to find him every time. He pays many bums for the information and manages to lose 150 gold. Jamison finds Argus talking to a guard and sees that they start walking toward him. He manages to escape stealthily and meets up with Group A and B at The Urban Lumberjack. Argus meets up with Jamison at the bar and says he’s pretty sure Weber is the traitor.

Group B enters a bar called “The King’s Tap” and tries to find Weber. Greg sits down after yelling at the barkeep, like an asshole, and Weber appears next to him and also takes a seat. Aravir has a big vagina and orders a Smirnoff ice (1% alcohol). Weber insists that Argus is the traitor and tells the group that he’s going to do some more recon. He puts on his cloak and disappears into the night. They head to The Academies to interrogate Grimm. He seems shaky and nervous and definitely has been drinking for a while. He claims he doesn’t know who the traitor is because he’s a pussy. He finally shapes up and expresses suspicion of Argus. Aravir touches his cock and buys him another beer and stays behind to follow him while Greg and Foostus leave.

Aravir follows Grimm and notices he left a bar to go to another bar. Aravir sneaks and grabs a drink. He listens in on his discussion and realizes it’s pretty much just drunken talk. Grimm leaves an hour later and Aravir follows him into the Noble District and sees Grimm walk to two guards and start talking. The two guards grab Grimm and start walking further into the Noble District heading toward the castle. Grimm starts shaking wildly. Aravir steps up and attempts to take Grimm from the guards. He manages to carry Grimm back to The Urban Lumberjack where everyone is asleep.

In the morning Jamison tells Zalbag that Argus is the traitor. During the ribbon cutting ceremony Zalbag says he will say a codeword and everyone should rape Argus. They all proceed to the secret tunnel in the lumberjack and enter the commons area of the new Bleeding Eye establishment. Zalbag talks great things and that means it’s time to fuck shit up.

Aravir takes a shot at Argus and hits his dumbass for massive damage. Jamison takes two drinks and hits him also for massive damage. Alvin attempts to take a shot at him, but fails. Foostus takes a swing at him with his battle ax and kills him, and at the same time cuts the ribbon to the new Bleeding Eye base camp. Zalbag tells the company of their new task before they eavesdrop on the three king’s discussion. They are told to go to some island (the Great Southern Light, a lighthouse south of Agreia) to retrieve some log (so ALE can sail to the island of Shin Sekai if need be). By passing trials, the log keeper (The Sage of the Tower) will part with his log.

They arrive at the lighthouse and knock on the door. The door slowly opens. The group inquires about the log to the dude at the front desk. Everyone moves in to compete in the trials. They proceed through a door into an empty room with a headstone in the middle with door at the end. A man appears in the middle and he’s super pissed. He calls for his minions.

Aravir takes a shot at the big guy but one of his minions blocks it with his shield. The baddies move in and surround the group. They take their attacks and hit most of the group. Seight dragon breaths and takes down two minions. He attempts to kill some more but fails. Jamison also fails to kill anyone. Foostus lands an attack but cuts the the spirt in half, creating two. ALE realizes slashing and piercing damage are a bad idea. More baddies move up and hit Jamison, Aravir and Seight. Belial kills two peeps with a force hammer. Greg does his one thing (scared flame) and hits. Aravir fails to hit with his next move. The baddies move in and attack the group. Seight dragon breaths the shit out of the room and kills a lot of baddies. Foostus attempts to kill a dude but misses. Baddies move up and attack Seight. Greg does his sacred flame and kills a nigga. Aravir misses with his rock attack. Foostus hits him with his butt (ROFLMAO) and kills him. The group moves into another room.

In the middle of the next room lies some bitch (Attentia) who is elvish (an Eladrin). The group has to fight her cause she doesn’t want the group to see the powers behind the door (“dat bitch”). Aravir hits the bitch but the damage is distributed throughout the party. Jamison takes a hit on Seight which causes damage against dat bitch. Foostus also moves and hits Jamison and Seight which causes the bitch to go down on her knees asking for a raping. Dat bitch screams loud and stares at Seight and mind fucks the shit out of him. She also weakens half the party and slows them. Seight goes crazy and runs across the room. Belial hits every single one of his teammates and they take massive damage. With those hits, dat bitch screams and disappears. The group proceeds through the next door.

The group enters a room full of mirrors. The group solved the puzzle and then saved some cats. Game over.

Flight from Belghast
"You're really over-usisng the phrase 'shitstorm' today..."

The encounter in the Bleeding Eye begins as Mo’kar and some bros strut on in through the entrance. It begins as a standoff until Aravir fires a pair of shots at two heavily armored humans, hitting one of them. After that the gnomes moved up and gusted a few people out into the hallway and kept a cyclone spinning inside the corridor. The other gnome knocks Seight into the ceiling with a blast of air. The humans move up and hit, the double sword elf (rogue) hits Aravir, and Mo’kar commands them to tighten formation. Jamison then opts to grab the human’s dick and grab on for a while. Belial makes sure no one gets shifted around anymore. Alvin hollers at Jamison to smack that guy’s D. There’s a big clusterfuck of a fight in the doorway.

TURN 2

Aravir Fey Steps and knocks the gnome, breaking his concentration and relieving the party from the cyclone. Seight gets tossed up and down some more, hitting the ceiling before getting knocked to the ground. Jamison’s prey tries to get away but fails- even with the grapple, he manages to smack Mo’kar twice. He then swaps his grapple to the sword human (“old seight”) and gets some health back thanks to Greg’s astral seal. Foostus then runs up and smacks him. Alvin lets Foostus hit him again, and with that he buries an axe into his chest. Foostus, feeling really invigorated, runs forward and knocks the elf. Belial tries to force hammer the sword guy Jamison was holding, but fails miserably. Greg tosses out another Astral Seal.

TURN 3

Another rouge, soldier, and two archers appear!

Aravir slings an arrow at the gnome in the back, fucking him up a bit. Belial gets knocked down by the gnome with a blast of air, but Foostus avoids it. Three sword bros walk in the door to get at Foostus. Jamison then gets smacked by Mo’kar, but retaliates by sliding him into his old square. Foostus then steps on up to Vengeful Storm Rage- and proceeds to only hit one enemy. He takes a little more time to whirling frenzy- killing the elf with the swords, the sword soldier, and cutting into Mo’kar. Alvin spends his turn making Jamison finish off Mo’kar and rewarding him with heals. Belial force hammers the fuck out of half of the enemies, but forgets to sustain his immunity to forced movement shit. Seight ice breathed, but he only hits one dude. He then hacks and hews. Greg Astral Seals an archer.

TURN 4

Aravir twin strikes one of the gnomes, killing him. The other gnome decides to be an asshole and starts up that cyclone thing again. Everyone gets all up ons and smackses. Jamison walks on up and grapples an archer. Foostus walks on up, ready the wreck the same archer, easily bloodying him. Alvin uses commanders strike to make Foostus smack the archer again, yelling at him to “kiss [his] dick!” Belial force hammers a few bros. Seight attempts to kill the archer, barely succeeding. Greg heals Aravir (amongst many “fuck you, Greg!”s), Totally revitalizing him.

TURN 5

A wild gnome, elf archer, elf rogue, and swordy human appear!

Aravir tries to get out of the way, but runs short on ideas. He twin strikes another archer for decent chunk of damage, but doesn’t kill him. In the process, he gets slashed in the face. All the fighters get knocked down by a force arrow. Aravir gets into a little scuffle with the sword guy and the archer guy, getting crit for taking a shifty arrow. Jamison and Foostus have some fun charging and then Alvin lets Jamison finish a bitch off and heals Aravir. Then the new guys decide to really fuck with Foostus and Jamison. The rest of the group decides to really fuck with everyone, knocking bitches prone and bloodying the fuck out of nearly everyone. Seight ice breaths for a decent amount of damage and then unexpected shield bashes to mark everyone in the room. Greg then, reluctantly, decides to heal all his bloody allies.

TURN 6

Aravir kills the gnome that was moving everyone around. Jamison realizes he should start moving back and shifts into better position to get out. Foostus also has the same idea, taking an opportunity attack to get back. Alvin shoots a staggering shot and takes out one of the elves. Belial messes up an augmented force hammer. The new gnome puts out another big blast wind… thing. The party realizes how spread out they all are and begin to get worried. Jamison gets downed, but Greg picks him back up before fucking running.

TURN 7

Some more random baddies move in. Aravir takes advantage of Alvin’s action point advantages to move into better position and then fire a shot. He then yells “fuck it” as retreating into the room. Jamison moves on up to the entrance of the hallway, smacking him and then dragging him into the room. Foostus charges at the dude to attempt to kill him, but fails. Alvin moves in to shoot a massive arrow at the last gnome- he crits him and murders him, eliminating the zone. Then the new recruits move in on Belial and Foostus- Belial is flanked like all hell and goes down in the middle of the room, bleeding and bleeding. Seight, also stuck in the middle of the room with all those enemies, drinks from his flask and dragon breaths. He then attempts a brash strike (and misses) and moves back into the safety zone.

TURN 8

Aravir pops the guy Jamison dragged into the back corridor. He then backs into the safety zone and obscures the zone in nature growth. Foostis then attempts to kill the guy Jamison is holding down with his rage strike- and he crit fails, doing no damage and almost taking Jamison’s arm off. Alvin moves in to heal Belial (who is surrounded by 3 enemies) and then attempts to paint the bullseye on a few enemies to mess up their attack rolls. Pops his action point to do it again and then shifts into safety.

The bad guys hit Belial once and miss the second time. Then the other enemy charges at Seight. Belial then spends his turn teleporting into safety. Seight shifts back and comeback strikes for some health.

TURN 9

Aravir delays.

Foostus pressing strikes Seight in order to shift back and hopefully push him out of the way of some arrows- but instead he misses. Jamison decides to use his turn to drag Foostus into the room. Seight gets dragged closer by Belial- all while a big wave of enemies are pouring toward the room. The group prepares to be as far back as can be allowed.

TURN 10

Foostus and Jamison move into the safe zone. Seight gets hit by the oncoming wave by enemies and takes a minimal amount of damage. Belial pushes all the enemies out of the zone with a force punch. As the building collapses, Jamison yells “fuck you guys!” and gets some water in his mouth.


As everyone gets tossed into the water, they all attempt to swim to the top of the river. Everyone except for Belial and Seight swim fine- Jamison helps Belial back up easily. Foostus and Alvin dive back down to help Seight, crit failed and endurance check and past out, getting him halfway up before Foostus almost passes out. Jamison and Aravir dive back down with Alvin to finish the job. They then ride out on their horses (and camel).


After riding for a while, the group sees a Wyvern and a large flaming tiefling, believed to be the yet unseen, Captain Commander Grimfire, comes down behind them.

Aravir begins his fight by firing a lightning arrow at the wyvern- he hits him hard. Belial tosses an orb at him, knocking him out of the sky. Alvin misses his attack (Dave is a big fucking retard [Oh yeah man?]). The wyvern stings Talugahtolos. Somehow Seight gets dazed. A bunch of shit gets blasted by a blast of fire. Jamison attempts to grab the bro and fails. Seight falls off his horse attempting to attack the wyvern. Aravir moves up and blows his load attempting to kill the wyvern, Belial blows his load on the guy. Alvin doesn’t do fucking anything with his turn and heals Talugahtolos, who Greg refused to heal. The wyvern fucks shit up. Aravir fires another arrow at the wyvern and proclaims “I slayed a dragon!… sort of.” Seight looks at him in disgust. Then that faggot decides to shadowmeld or some shit. Everyone else sits around and does not much of anything- Jamison and Seight get on their prone-ass horses. Then he rains in a meteor and murders Jamison’s horse and damages a lot of other stuff. After that shitstorm Jamison runs up and grapples him.

Jamison miraculously figures out what the curse is that he laid on Aravir. He tries to shoot the guy but ends up shooting himself in the foot. Alvin takes his turn to heal himself and Talugahtolos again. Jamison takes his turn to toss him into the fire crater. Seight walks up to the crater and hits him for 13 damage. Foostis charges to him to do a decent chunk of damage. They all take a few swings at him in the hole but he doesn’t show much strain. The melee still take turns smacking him. They break his shield and he teleports and does fire damage- barely incapping Jamison. Alvin stays useless against a prone faggot.

He continues to explosively teleport when hit, and also continues to focus Aravir, smacking him with a brutal fire vulnerability curse (Jamison also miraculously knows about) and ongoing fire damage combo, bringing him to 2 HP. Talugahtolos soaked up all Alvin’s heals and is now semi-stable, Alvin move in for revenge firing arrows and commander strikes like its his job, (wait a minute…) with light rage when he misses. Greg ambles up on his still burning horse and heals Aravir. The melee fighters continue to hound Grimfire, until Seight struck by the Curse of Madness and begins periodically lashing out at his allies (just Foostus really) with rage.

Alvin lands a clutch paint the bullseye, and melee fighter gang-rape him to death, Foostus getting the killing blow, followed by a revenge Whirling Lunge at Seight.

Return to Belghast

Upon entering Belghast our party sees that foreign guards have taken up posts in in town, the party enters by going around through the forest. the party finds that the locals are less cheerful and that the bleeding eye’s HQ has been abandoned. Through the use of Alvins Ghost Sound, the party directs attention away from themselves before being directed to the Crossroads to meet up with Zaalbag. Zaalbag explains that the King’s Elite Hunters are looking for the party and that the Bleeding Eye has been forced to saunter among the common-folk. Zaalbag reveals that the party will be bait for a coming plan to sabotage the enemies effort; However they will need to eliminate a few higher-ups before the plan can be enacted.
Zaalbag has been able to find out several bits of information about them.

The Lieutenants:
Belami, the Geomancer
Mo’kar, the Green Beast
The Pitiless Melissa Chin
Grit, the Deadeye-Duelist

The party splits up to avoid suspicion, as the guards are searching for a large party.
A team of Alvin, Slieght, Belial, and Foostus move out to the forest in an effort to find the Geomancer. The party resolves to set up an ambush after finding his tracks pacing in a figure-eight. The party readies themselves for the ambush by hiding in various bits of brush as well as Alvin, who clambers to the top of a tree.


The Geomancer is not fooled. In his element, he easily picks out the party members and calls them out. Foostus reveals himself and charges to knock him prone, only to have the Geomancer roll away and root Foostus to the earth. Belial uses a kinetic trawl to break his earthen shield and drags him back to Foostus’ range. Seight turns and presses into the geomancer and manages to flank him. From his treetop abode Alvin looses a staggering shot that finds it’s mark. Foostus Thunder Hooves rages all over the place, but the geomancer still manages to slink away. The Geomancer reappears and summons a cyclone which pulls alvin from his treetop and knock Belial to his feet. Then proceeds to again, root Foostus. Sleight moseys up and critically strikes the geomancer with an unexpected shield-bash. Alvin finishes the party with a critical strike and puts the geomancer down. The party resolves to try and use their extra time to find Deadeye Duelist-Grit.


The second team, composed of Alvin, Greg, and Aravir move to try a nearby bar to attempt to poison the reportedly drunken, Pitiless Melissa Chin. They mingle in the bar and find her, Jamison stumbles through some conversation with her and finds out about a fight-club at the bar and she encouraged Jamison to enter. The team hatches a plan to have Jamison enter and defeat Melissa, all the while Greg is playing the “battle-medic” card and is healing Jamisons victims, Aravir; ever the complete pansy when it comes to one-on-one conflict, resigns to mingle and make bets. Jamison defeats all comers including Garr, a berserker, a gnomish monk – “the Iron Wind” and even Crazy Jim, the town drunk, who ends up being mortally wounded. Which Greg is forced to talk his way out of. Finally, Melissa enters the arena opposite Jamison. The battle begins with a dagger thrown into Jamisons’ chest, but the tide quickly turns. Jamison precedes to absolutely man-handle and control the fight. He knocks Melissa to the ground, pins her down and pummels her into a near coma. Jamison collects his prize money and Greg receives payment for his medical work, but not before administering poison to Melissa, sealing her fate. The team, content with completing their objective and pocketing a bunch of gold, calls it in for the night.


The first team however, finds the time to continue their endeavor to find Grit, whom they catch leaping across rooftops, after a botched ambush they proceed to engage him. However, he proves to be far too agile and proceeds to kite the party. Even after Seight hurls insults his way. He proceeds to double-crit Foostus; If i wrote that the fight started beforehand, i lied, the encounter begins now.

The party, frustrated, makes a few attempts to knock Grit to the ground, with no luck. Foostus leaps across the roofs heroically and proceeds to kill Grit, just before he can leap away. Foostus trys to throw the body into the river, but doesn’t quite eek it out and has to jump down and shove the body in. (by jump down, i mean fall down and eat it hard)
everyone retires for the night.


The plan is revealed to the party the next morning, and we find out that there is a mole within the Bleeding Eye. The party sells their wares, enters the old Bleeding Eye and loot like mad men before entering their battle formation.

Jamison gathers Zaalbag’s various literature, but first grabs some of Zaalbag’s "literature. He also finds his bag of holding in his desk and proceeds to full it with books, before heading to the armory.

Alvin looks for historically significant objects, identifying many key objects to the Bleeding Eye and The Commune in the commons and Zaalbag’s office, which he either grabs or tells people to grab. Then proceeds to the armory.

Seight checks around for weapons and armor, while playing packmule.

Belial does various arcana checks and finds too much to discern much of anything. He identifies the items the party finds.

Foostus also loots the armory and picks up some battle-axes.

Greg checks out the armory and finds nothing befitting of a pacifist, save some armor.

Aravir scopes out the training room and find some good items, then grabs some bows from the armory. He’s also remembers to grab Mora’s forging tools.
