Campaign of the Month: February 2016
Rise of the Durnskald
The Journal of Sorathin (The Green Knight) Session 59
The ARC was right – it’s somewhat dangerous out here if you’re trying to reach the Swamplurk. On the first day, we were already spotted by some dog person who was watching us. I tried to take him out, but he simply fled the sign with incredible speed. Perhaps I could learn a thing about moving fast from that guy. Thoragen said he had some gems for us, but I don’t really care that much. Still, this place is very unique; It’s an open plain everywhere with only an occasional tree blotting out the horizon. Oh, and the mountains that separate this plains from the Swamplurk. I have the feeling we will be tested thoroughly out here… a good thing too, since I need to train and get better.
That night my suspicions rang true as arrows fell from the sky around our camp site. We investigated, but came up short, unable to find any tracks or evidence of our assailants. We decided to sleep for the rest of the night and continue travelling towards the mountains the next day. The second night however, we were attacked again, this time by an archer who shot strangely large arrows. Again, we couldn’t find his tracks or presence. Later on, Thoragen determined that these arrows had some magic imbued in them. Steeling my resolve, I swore I would spot this creature tomorrow night.
Almost on cue, the assailant attacked that night. I looked up to catch the arrow that was launched, only to find that it was a tree. I narrowly escaped from being crushed entirely and didn’t need to wake anyone up this time. I got on top of the tree to scout out the creature as the rest went in the rough direction it was coming from. I spotted it eventually, a column of smoke with a smoky figure inside of it. It began charging Krellem, so I got off the tree and made my way to it. The others converged, and we attacked it with full force, which caused the smoke to evaporate. Inside, was Whisper and she didn’t look so well. The only people I want to punch are Sin Rothos and Zax, so hopefully Whisper will have calmed down when she regains consciousness.
