Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #12

Sunday, Erastus 7, 4708

 

In an almost fitting manner, the party continues their assault on the underground Temple of Urgathoa, on Sunday, the holiest day of the week in the City of Korvosa.

As the party takes a couple of minutes to rest, they soon realize they’re not the only ones in this complex attempting to understand what is going on, who’s involved, and how this all relates to Blood Veil.  Damien, a tiefling of some arcane power, following the trail of bodies left behind by our party of heroes, approaches the party, and suggests an alliance.

The party, short one member, and joined by a new ally, proceed to take……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #11

Starday, Erastus 6, 4708

The party decides that there’s something very wrong at the hospice, and decides to go back and ask a few more questions.  While there, they take some time to check around all the various rooms, but find nothing of note.

Afterwards, they decide that maybe checking near the Marbledome, the last known location of Rolth, might reveal some clues.  After breaking in, they find nothing of note.

That night, they return to the hospice, capture one of the Queen’s Physicians, take him back to the deepest, darkest corner of the marbledome and interrogate him.  Ultimately the Physician, after being beaten to within an inch of his life,……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #10

Oathday, Erastus 4, 4708
On this particular day, nobody wakes up with Blood Veil, and it Malatir’s Blood Veil from the day before, seems to have cured itself.

The party makes their way to see Cressida, who advises that a young woman is claiming that her brother is missing after having attended a party at the Carowyn Manor. The party agrees to check out it, as the Korvosan Guard is still heavily understaffed.

Once arriving at the Manor, Tindes is overcome with the overwhelming air of death that surround the manorhouse. Within the manorhouse, the party finds all the party goers going about their party activities. However each of them……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #9

Toilday, Erastus 2, 4708

The party continues the exploration of the subterranean complex under the Korvosa Graveyards, and find a noblewoman, Maisie Keswick, trapped in a cage surrounded by more of the ghouls that seem to invest these spaces.  The party easily dispatches the ghouls, and have a brief chat with Maisie, provide her with some food, and promise to release her just as soon as they check out the room the passed earlier.

In this unexplored room, they find a collection of chests, two of which come to life and attack the party.  After much difficulty the party kills the mimic and its mimicling swarm of offspring and discover that……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #8

Moonday, Erastus 1, 4708

Our party of adventurers departs the undercity of Korvosa and makes their way to the Citadel to return their findings to Cressida and Eries Yelloweyes, the latter of whom, makes arrangements to get the party some potions of water breathing.

Later that day, the party realizes that Harsk is grievously injured from the encounter with Girrigz, and decides to seek him assistance the next morning.

 

 

Toilday, Erastus 2, 4708

The party makes their way to the Temple of Abadar to cure Harsk’s newly acquired condition, only to determine that the temple’s highest ranking cleric, and the only one able to assist, is not available. Ishani suggests……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #7

Sunday, Sarenith 30, 4708

The party makes their way to the Citadel to meet with Cressida Kroft, in the hopes that her clerics have determined what the strange chest was.  Unfortunately, nothing more was gleaned, but Cressida does have a few things she wants the party to look at:

Ishani (the cleric of Abadar the party is friendly with), wants the party to investigate the claims of a woman named Vendra who is selling a cure for blood veil.
A wererat named Eries Yelloweyes, worried that Korvosa might soon blame her kind for the plague, seeks out the PCs for help.
With the plague taking its toll on the citizens of Korvosa, the has……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #6

Wealday, Sarenith 26, 4708

With the party reassembled at the Three Rings Tavern, the party wakes up, much as the have these past few weeks, with very little planned for the day, only to find a letter ‘stapled’ to the wall with a dagger that reads as follows:

To my friends Harsk, Odessa, Sagann, Tindes & Yoola,

By the time you receive this letter, my ship will have already set sail from the Korvosan Harbor.

After a much waiting, contacts of mine at Eel’s End have brought to my attention that they have located some relatives of mine that I never even knew I had.


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #5-to-6 Downtime

Wealday, Sarenith 4, 4708 – Toilday, Sarenith 25, 4708

Sagann is pretty pissed at what happened at the attempted execution of Trinia. Royally pissed. Not quite enraged but he’s always on that edge, which is generally beneficial unless that rage happens to be directed at someone in the party… Odessa made a decision on behalf of the party to attempt to intervene in the execution, forcing them to do something Sagann considered stupid, regardless of the reasons why, and irrespective of whether or not it all worked out ok in the end, the big guy is royally annoyed. And he does kill things for a living…

Harsk thought it would……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #5

Toilday, Sarenith 3, 4708

This session picked up where the last left off, with the party still exploring the Dead Warrens in search of Thousand Bones’ grandsons body.

After exploring the rest of the complex, and encountering numerous creatures, the party ultimately found themselves face to face with a necromancer of significant ability.
With minimal resources at their disposal and an unfortunate blinding of Yoola, their half-orc archer, the party, through much toil, finally took down the necromancer, found the remains of Thousand Bones’ grandson and brought them back to Field Marshal Cressida Kroft.

Cressida indicates she’ll take care of the diplomatic relations with Thousand Bones, and hope that she can……


Curse of the Crimson Throne – Session #4

Sunday, Sarenith 1, 4708

Upon completing their previous task, and meeting up with the rest of their party at Citadel Volshyenek, the party meets with Field Marshal Cressida Kroft who brings the party up to speed on the day’s happenings: The queen has named the king’s killer and fears that this individual, whether guilty or not, will not get a fair trial. She wants Trinia, an artist commissioned last year to paint the King’s portrait, brought in. Cressida can’t send her guards in, as she fears it’ll trigger a riot. She can’t ask the Hellknights, as they couldn’t care less, being more interested in containing the mob. She……
