So tonight we began a new game. One of my players was the DM and I actually got to play. We’re going to run both campaigns. I like it because I get to DM and be a PC. In the campaign where I am a player character, I am an eladrin invoker named Arannis. I will post how that campaign is going through the eyes of Arannis in his journal entries. Here is the first.
Today I was summoned by a “Lord Gareth” in town. Apparently, so were a few others. I met Arias the human and Johann the ranger. A man joined us who looked similar to the birds of the forest. His name was Koresh. He spoke very little. The lord had his men find the “cheapest heroes” in town and I guess we qualified to meet that standard. As offended as I was at first, I let it subside. I am in need of funds in this strange place. Bael Turath has been more expensive than I planned on.
The blacksmith’s sons had been kidnapped. It was our duty to retrieve information or the sons themselves. Our reward was small but the quest was worth a try. We found a beggar who pointed us to an old mausoleum. Inside, a strange apparition appeared and gave us a riddle. We moved a few statues and found a secret door. We descended into a hallway that smelt of oil. Two sarcophagi blocked the exits. Two daring hobgoblins challenged us from behind the stone sarcophagi. Arias ran to one for cover, as did Johann. I sprinted forward and slid prone as to avoid their bows. We managed to trap them in a corner. The others hacked and slashed as they do. I, in an attempt to honor Corellon, chose to practice my skills with magic. We defeated them with ease.
We then saved the children in the next room and fended off four statues that were brought to life with magic. We had one room left…so we entered. A large platform was in the center of the room. An elf (the kidnapper) was at the bottom performing a ritual. He turned to us, summoned skeletons and they attacked. I used a fey teleportation trick to appear on the platform behind them. I cast a divine light upon the undead scattering and defeating most of them. My companions finished the elf with relative ease. We gathered the treasure we could find. I have kept his book of dark magic. I will return it to the academy in the Feywild. I do not trust it in the hands of the people of this world.
We gathered our reward. Lord Gareth asked if we might investigate the location of a young white dragon. We accepted the offer. We seem to work well together. Tomorrow, we find this dragon he speaks of. That is all for the night.
