~D&D: 5 Seasons. SESSION SUMMARY 1/4/13~
~VOLUME 1, Chapter 7: “Green, Red and Respect for the Dead.”
apologies for messiness, was a mess of a session story wise and i’m typing this up in a rush. love you all! ♥
The party came out of the tunnel into the graveyard whereupon they met Tyleron, one of Evergreen Keeps resident clerics of the god of death. They then made their way to the Inn where Garrick the “barkeep of the keep bar” let them stay for the night in return for playing him a song he proclaimed a “knock out hit”.
Prototype 9 arose from his sleep and finding no help from a sleeping Dathur, ran towards the keep. Seeing a glow from within marigold caverns he entered to discover Jeremiah, no longer wearing his bandana or red tie, shovelling gold into his pack. He begrudgingly told him the scarlets were in town, pt9 left and carried on towards town.
After the chaos that ensured following the guard captains morning inspection involving Dave, PT9 and Tyleron, the party discovered that while the scarlet caravan was there last night, it has since left.
Taking initiative, Dave decided to go to the keep to ask about the bandits, being sent away, he followed a guard to the stables whereupon he pinned him to the ground and tried to gather information on the scarlets from him. Dave interrogated him, realizing he knew nothing, pt9 pulled him off the frightened man who proceeded to faint. it was too late, the other guards had rushed onto the scene.
Lennaran produced a obscuring mist which allowed the party of 4 to escape out the back. Lupi and Lennaran ran towards the keep while Dave ran towards the graveyard, pt9 in pursuit.
He ran down the tunnel with pt9 still in pursuit. After assaulting Slart upon finding out that all their horses had been killed and had apples carved into their foreheads, he went down back into the tunnel. About halfway down they bumped into a very hostile lupi and lennaran. Through some grapples and strange screaming noises, pt9 convinced everyone to calm down and co operate.
The party exited into the graveyard only to see guards approaching, while the others quickly duck behind boulders, Dave digs up olafs petrified head for whatever reason. The guards arrive. Dave stands up, crossbow aimed at his head. He grabs his own from his back and fires a bolt directly in the guards forehead, the guard collapses, dead.
While 2 guards run for reinforcements, Dave ducks into the tunnel, pursued by 4 other guards. As they all disappear down the tunnel, the 3 others grab their sleeping friends from the inn and run out of the town.
Dave runs down the tunnel, dodging the crossbow bolts whizzing past before eventually getting cornered. Managing to kill 2 more guards, he eventually collapses.
He is brought to Tyleron, who declares him alive, barely.
