Cock Fight

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Tamar, Eki and Rein continued exploring around the Monolith of Surrel in the Abzaal Rock Flats. Eki, Rein and Tallalia went to the far side of the crevasse where Eki tried to use a rope to capture a cockatrice. Meanwhile, Gin and Tamar took turns taking shots and whipping zombies hanging from the large chains connected to the monolith. As the cockatrice emerged, Eki was able to tighten a noose around its neck. The creature flew up and began attacking as a second cockatrice emerged to defend its mate. Tamar and Gin rushed to the rescue.

Rein shifted into a bear to attack and nearly turned to stone from the creatures bite, but both of the crazy chicken creatures were eventually destroyed. Eki climbed down into the beast’s nest to discover two cockatrice chicks and a gold chain. Meanwhile, Gin and Tamar finished destroying the zombies on the other side of the monolith and Gin devised a plan to get across the offal covered chains…

The Monolith Awaits

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Tamar, Eki and Rein sat around a campfire in the Abzaal Rock Flats as Tamar explained her recent encounter with an ancient god. Gin expressed skepticism about who or what was sending messages to Tamar and argued against going east toward the Monolith of Surrel as instructed. Tamar insisted she would undertake the journey with or without him. Before the matter could be settled, wolves attacked the group, drawn by the smell of cooking goat meat. The companions killed the miserable beasts and took to skinning and cleaning the carcasses for meat.

As the wolves were being dressed, Gin discovered a scroll he was carrying held coordinates and partial instructions for a portal in the Doomtooth Crags. He then spoke with the spirit of Master Krallak trapped in his magic ring. Through mad ramblings, the former undead hinted that he was alive before something called the Heaven Rock exploded the sky. He insisted that Gin take him back to the Starwind Monastery and refused to believe he was dead.

The next morning, the companions made the trip to the Monolioth of Surrel. Tallalia expressed her concerns to Rein about life as an adventurer. Rein reassured her and promised to teach her companion herb lore. They soon found the monolith was a 400 foot tall elliptical slab resting inside a crevasse. Large chains stretched from either side of the monolith to the cliff sides. Hanging from the chains were several badly rotted zombies. Eki crept around the area in cat form to the far side where a stone zombie hung.

Suddenly, he heard a loud shriek from the sky as grey bat-like bird creature descended from the sky and flew into a cave in the wall of the crevasse…

Lands Beyond These

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Tamar, Eki and Rein continued battling the crazed undead among the Starwind Monastery dome in the Abzaal Rock Flats. Tamar rushed the creature and began hacking away at it with her great sword as Eki put his plan on tossing the creature down an abandoned elevator shaft to work. Gin cast darkness on the creature, blinding everybody close to the undead and Rein tossed flame at it. Enraged at Eki’s insolence at touching his prized telescope, the wight used psychic blast against Eki who could not muster the will to complete his scheme. Badly outnumbered and unwilling to accept defeat, the creature was slain.

The heroes then took some much needed rest to examine the room and lick their wounds. Gin found several interesting documents including the map of a strange land called Delthrand, a Journal of Master Krallak and a rolled up scroll yet to be fully examined. In addition, he gained a magic ring possessed by the spirit of the crazed undead and a staff that held powers of the Umbra.

The next morning, the group headed back toward Osmarren. Eki managed to hunt down an emaciated goat for dinner. As they sat around the fire, Tamar burst into flames caused by an ancient god. The god told her that she should travel east to the Monolith of Surrel and consecrate the altar therein with a blessing…

Undead Nerd

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Tamar, Eki and Rein stood amid the heavily trapped hall of doom in the stronghold they discovered in the Abzaal Rock Flats. Eki went to look up a dark shaft that a poltergeist they recently battled fled up only to walk into another spiked trap. While Rein tended to his wounds, Gin sent Malum up to examine the shaft. He discovered that 300 feet up there was a shattered observatory where a crazed undead creature busied himself amongst the ruined lab equipment. Malum talked to the creature, but it warned them her to stay away as the poltergeist attacked. Malum fled and the dispirited companions wavered in their resolve to face the creatures above.

Frustrated, Gin yelled up the shaft, drawing out the poltergeist. The heroes, concentrated their efforts on the spirit, eventually destroying it. Motivated by their success, they climbed the shaft to face the undead scientist. Malum distracted the creature as the rest of the group managed to climb into the observatory. As the companions readied themselves for battle, Eki moved forward to tie a noose in his rope with the other end tied to a large metal gear…

The Hallway of DOOOOOOM!

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Tamar, Eki and Rein entered battle with a skeletal minotaur holding sentry in the garden of a stronghold in the Abzaal Rock Flats. Gin used Malum’s horrific visage to scare the minotaur, effectively limiting the creature’s movement as Tamar ran forth to strike the beast. Meanwhile, Eki attempted to climb out of the area in hopes to secure a better position, but ended up instead falling into one of the trees. The minotaur did manage to strike heavily against Tamar, but Rein, whom they just recently met, used her powers to heal the half-orc. Eki focused his ki power to strike the minotaur. Enraged, the beast charged Eki, but missed as a final blow from the heroes reduced the creature to a pile of bones.

With the creature dead, Gin went to retrieve treasure from a room they had previously cleared and Tamar retrieved the body of Scarlet and put her to flames. After a much needed rest, the companions headed down a staircase they know led to a trapped hallway. As they deftly avoided spiked pole traps, an unseen force began tossing them onto the pressure plates to trigger the traps. Eki used Lumen to spot a poltergeist floating near the hallway’s ceiling. The group tried to destroy the incorporeal creature while avoiding more traps.

Gin nearly lost his life and just as the undead spirit seemed to waver, it fled up into a shaft located at the end of the hall…

The Pact is Sealed

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Tamar and Eki stood amid the bloody ruin of what was once the grell that killed their companion, Scarlet. As they decided their next move, Gin examined the books he discovered in the library. He was shocked to discover one of the books recounted his bonding experience with his warlock patron and was then put into a trance. Tamar and Eki watched in confusion as Gin performed a vile ritual which opened the fabric of reality and summoned a strange tentacled cat creature. Once shaken from the trance, Gin explained the creature was his familiar named Malum and the pact with his patron had been sealed.

Tamar agreed to continue exploring the ruin with a promise from Gin and Eki to give Scarlet a proper burial. The group entered a large sleeping chamber where they came under attack from two shadows. The undead creatures were easily scattered back to death. In the next room, a nothic guarded a white altar. The creature seemed to target Gin and almost killed him while gibbering “Umbra”. However the aberration was put under a submission spell and halted his attack as the rest of the group explored the altar. They read the strange writing upon it and the floor opened to reveal a spiral staircase.

The companions had a strong urge to clear the rest of the ground level before descending and decided to take on the minotaur they knew to be guarding a large garden in the center of the ruin. Gin used an illusion to distract the minotaur before they entered the garden. Once inside, they were surprised when a wood elf climbed out of one of the open graves. She quickly explained that her name was Rein and that she had been following them through the Abzaal Rock Flats. But before she could finish her story, the minotaur charged back into the room…

RIP Scarlet

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Scarlet, Tamar and Eki took a much needed rest in the library of a stronghold in the Abzaal Rock Flats. The companions did manage to find several volumes of books written in an unknown language, as well as four magic scrolls before heading out to further explore with a new sense of purpose.

As Eki quickly and quietly secured weapons from the armory previously visited, Gin blasted the gelatinous cube with fierce eldritch magic. With help from Scarlet and Tamar, the cube was finally destroyed and Eki searched through the creature’s slime for treasure.

The heroes then turned to explore an empty private chamber. Tamar searched inside a lavatory only to come under attack by a vicious grell. The creature used its tentacles to paralyze her and her companions came to the rescue. Scarlet positioned herself to battle the creature, only to find herself poisoned by the aberrant beast after Tamar managed to escape. Eki flipped through the air to join the fray, but ended up getting smacked down by the grell.

Unfortunately, Scarlet could not stand up to the creatures whip-like tentacles and she perished. Enraged at her friend’s death, Tamar struck at the creature and viciously stomped it to a bloody pulp…

RIP Ixio

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Ixio, Scarlet and Tamar continued searching through the dining room of the supposed library in the Abzaal Rock Flats. They discovered very little and peeked into the adjoining kitchen. Inside was a bulbous carrion crawler that immediately attacked Tamar. The half-orc succumbed to the creature’s paralyzation poison, but managed to shake off the effects as the group laid waste to the beast. As they searched the kitchen, Gin peered out into the hallway and discovered the gelatinous cube standing sentry in the hallway. Ixio devised a plan to use magic in order to open the doors to the garden to see if the minatour inside would attack the creature. Unfortunately, Ixio wasn’t fast enough and the cube engulfed him. Despite the best efforts from the rest of the heroes, Ixio was dissolved into nothingness.

Shocked at their comrade’s death, Gin, Scarlet and Tamar fled from the cube and dashed into a library. As they closed the doors to the library, Eki entered the room. They assumed the cat would disappear upon Ixio’s death and were doubly shocked when the cat morphed into a humanoid. Eki explained that he had been summoned as a familiar to Ixio and had to remain in his cat form due to Ixio’s magic. However, since Ixio was dead, he was now able to transform at will. The three other companions expressed doubts to the story, but Eki’s loyalty was put to the test when Scarlet was attacked by a mimic disguised as a bookshelf.

The creature proved difficult to kill, with Eki and Scarlet almost dying. However, the companions managed to slay the vile creature and noticed some scroll cases situated next to it…

Fruit in the Gelatin

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Ixio, Scarlet and Tamar eventually destroyed all of the skeletons in the enclosure beside the ancient library they discovered in the Abzaal Rock Flats. Unfortunately, Gin suffered serious wounds during the fight and had to be revived. Exhausted and with most of their magic spent, the companions decided to bunk down for the night. The next morning they explored the yard and discovered another skeleton in the guardhouse. While that skeleton was slain easily, Gin also discovered skeletal warhorses and stableman in the stables. He warned the others to be cautious and they entered the library.

Meanwhile, Eki crept through sun shafts in the roof to discover what used to be an indoor garden. Standing in the middle of the garden’s intersecting paths was a skeletal minotaur. The cat hid behind a well and waited for his people to arrive. Inside the library, the group haphazardly went about individually. They discovered an abandoned weapons training room and a gelatinous mass with items floating in it down one hallway. Gin warned the group of the danger and urged them to continue investigating the ruins in a more strategic manner.
They then opened a door to an abandoned dining hall where a swarm of undead rats quickly attacked. The vermin were slashed, blasted and poisoned back into death…

Undead Library

Long into the future, in a land far, far away…

Gin, Ixio, Scarlet and Tamar continued travelling the Abzaal Rock Flats in search of a supposed library as a rock storm quickly approached. The companions sought shelter, but Gin was left partially exposed to the fury of the storm and suffered the consequences of whirling sand and pebbles. The storm passed as quickly as it arrived and the group continued their march.

Soon, they saw a laccolith with a large building situated next to it. As they drew closer, they noticed several zombies milling about outside. They attacked the zombies as more arrived from behind the building. Several proved difficult to put down, but they were able to eventually destroy them all.

In the meantime, Eki climbed to the top of the building and peered into an area enclosed by a concrete wall. Inside were two small buildings as well as skeletal guards walking through the yard. With help from the kitty, the group climbed to the top of the building and began raining fire upon the skeletons. While a skeleton with a pitchfork went easily, several others drew short swords and returned fire. As the battle raged, Eki snuck toward one of the holes in the building’s roof and peered inside…
