Shattered Queen

A New Ally and The Dark Forest

Our Group in now a few hours walk from the Village where the dark cloud has converged overhead. We have decided to make camp alongside the trail close to a small town for the night. I could not sleep a wink because Ahri keeps bugging to play and get my attention while I write this. She’s really active for being so young. About 3 hours into the night; Char, Godric, and Unkala left to go search for a mysterious noise. I stayed behind with Lilya and Oren.

The 3 of them travelled to the small town to discover that the entire place was in complete chaos. A mob had formed outside of the house in the middle of town and called out for the wizard that lived there. These people were human but their sanity could prove otherwise. They were undead without succumbing to the cruel necro fate. With pitchforks and torches raised high, these mindless zombies began to charge the house. Char, Godric, and Unkala took to the trees and travelled above the crowd and leapt to the balcony of the house, entering the building cautiously. There they discovered a Wizard creating a trap around the front door that would cause a massive explosion if someone was to enter. The three of them and Akaleptos began to devise a plan to escape this place without many casualties.

They were gone for about an hour before Lilya and I decided to go to them. Oren was still passed out so we left him behind while he slept. One of should at least be well rested before our next encounter. The two of us finally made it to the town to find that the mob has not made any progress and were completely oblivious to our arrival. We began to search for any sort of goods that may help us on our journey. The local weapon shop was empty of occupants, easy pickings.

While we ransacked the weapon shop, the rest of the group devised a very funny plan to escape the house. Char burst out the back door disguised as Akaleptos. The mob noticed him and gave chase into the back woods. Once the mob was gone; Godric and Unkala lead Akaleptos out the front door. Lylia and I meet up with them shortly after with plenty of loot from the shop. Our reunion was short lived as we were confronted by The Blades.

A mass army appeared before us with one demand. “Hand over the Wizard, and you all may leave unharmed.” Our decision was very simple though, we would leave with him safely. Not a moment after, Char ran back into town and quickly made it through the army with the mob behind him. The mob again paid no attention to us and attacked The Blades. We took this chance to escape the same way that Char came.

In the woods, we came to a lush open meadow. It seemed safe, too safe. Akaleptos went left through the woods while Unkala went right. Lylia, Godric and I went straight through the clearing. Godric stopped moving and turned to me to explain that he had to leave but would meet us at the Village, our destination. Before he left on ahead, I passed him a Shotgun and a scope for his Rifle. I knew he would need them the most in our gang. Char finally caught up to us as he left. No sooner did he leave did we begin to hear cracking coming from our right. Trees began to fall one by one as Unkala raced out to the clearing as if he was running for his life. Bishop came charging behind him cleaving trees as if they were twigs with two huge Halberds.

Akaleptos was having his own problems. As he was traversing the brush of the woods, he was attacked by an Unsworn. He eliminated it quickly though but not unscathed. He was bitten by the creature. As we have learned from our travels, these creatures are “venomous” and their blood and saliva is poisonous to an extent. We don’t know what it does though but it has potential to be lethal. After killing the creature, Akaleptos addressed to his wounds and rejoined the rest of the group as Bishop tore through the woods.
Bishop quickly stopped his assault as Rook and Pawn appeared behind him. A cold sweat came over me as our confrontation could mean our death. Their demand was simple. “Hand over the Wizard.” Unkala thought it was a great idea to argue with them as a sign of intimidation. They weren’t fooled in the least. Char also got into it but was able to strike a deal with the Royal Family instead.

Our Group now had a new mission. Take care of the problem in the next Village and kill Talimos. We had one day but because of Char and Unkala, we now have two days.
What have I gotten into by joining these people? It makes me really wonder what’s going to happen in the morning when we get to the Village.


Into the City of Wonders
Mysteries and the Unexpected

Our heroes finally getting off the train after their tense moment with seeing one of the chess pieces. They got off and went to the main gate where Grendel lead them. They saw a group of blue cloaked individuals watching as red cloaks were beating a poor and helpless girl. Grendel stiffened as he explained to the group that magic is considered an atrocity to human the the red cloaks or “Blades” were the order to keeping magic in control. As for the little girl she was either a run away trying to escape or she was a rouge now captured and being brought to a tower. Grendel gave them all siver rings with the ability to blend them in and not look like outsiders or stand out, it even hid the auras of magic users which Unkala and Oren were grateful for. They headed to the main gate and heard that there would be a problem getting inside. After some conversation they found out that recent murders that were going around they would have to relinquish their weapons however Godric offered an alternative that their bladed weapons would be tied down and their ranged ammunition would be covered or separated. The guards agreed as they tied their weapons and insured their ammunition was restricted as well. Char however was able to hide his other weapons but his Katanas were tied down.

Upon entering the captial they saw a huge monestary paying tribute to many gods also anything and everything from weapons and armor was up for grabs. Upon looking around they decided because they were still awake that they could find some information and since they heard about someone murdering people maybe they could find out information about this place and help catch a murdered. They journeyed to the tavern to make sure they had their rooms ready then headed to a brothal in a shady location. No one seemed to much effected by it so they continued onward. Upon entering the brothal Oren was tackled by a flying man that was being thrown out. He got up and shook himself as he just said “Yuck.” from all the sweat that man had and all the boos he just drank.

After all the plesentries Oren was alowed to get himself cleaned as the others went to speak with Mr. Dandy and Mr. Sparks. Mr. Dandy was drinking like there was no tomorrow as he was rambling. Finally after Mr. Dandy passed out Mr. Sparks explained what was going on and also our heroes said that if they helped them with their case, could they help them. Mr. Sparks agreed as they continued pleasantries.

Oren finally cleaned went to speak with the woman and owner of the brothel. He asked if he knew anyone by the name Drakehart while bribing her 20 gold. She told him all she knew of him and how much of a man he was paying for the best but knew nothing of how he died and other things. Oren sighed and said thank you as he walked away as he explained to her. “I expected as much… from someone of royalty.” he added as he thought it might have been his father when he was younger but either way he needed to know the truth.

After conversing and getting everyone up to speed they decided that they would try and get some sleep even though their internal clocks were messed up. They got what rest they could as the morning came, then there seemed to be a massive earthquake while people were screaming also. Because of Grendel and Oren using a lot of magic from their previous encounter with the “Makers” the rifts of magic, time and space were still disturbed causing a massive hole to appear. Out came a woman floating to the ground at the Monastery as our heroes went to investigate.

Once they got there they saw it was a half elf with dark skin… Once she awoken she was a bit shaken as she got up. “Well that was interesting.” he said as she stood. Grendel asked if she was alright as she said that nothing seemed wrong and that soon a crowd was coming. Upon the pleasantries she introduced herself. She was Lilya Meadowlyoss. Unkala jumped at that and said, “Meadowlyoss? Your Leonnel’s daughter?” “Yes I am.” she said as she stood sheathing her huge sword.

Grendel was confused as he didn’t know who this girl was yet everyone seemed to know of her, or her father. Unkala, Oren and Char said that he was one of the founders of Drake’s mercenary group and partner of Raynard. Also one of Talimos’s friends upon his adventures.

After all was said and done they asked her if she could join them and she agreed since she didn’t know where she was and they seemed to know who she was. Grendel gave her a silver ring to help her blend in as they then left.

Upon leaving to head to Mr. Sparks they saw a robbery as the group then decided to help out as the place was strange. People were choosing heads to add to their bodies thanks to magical properties but the item in question was a stolen head. The group caught up and got to the thief and also got to another thief. Upon some intelligence gathering they decided to pay their boss a visit and also found that there was something inside this stolen head. Grendel pulled out a small blue sphere as he put it into a bag saying. “this is some very dangerous magic. touching this is very unstable let alone can be hazardous.” Grendel warned.

Char went and killed on of the men and said to not freak out but… with a wave of his hand over his face his appearance completely changed to the man he just slayed. Everyone was surprised as the other their had 2 choices. Die or take them to their base. Seeing the man was outnumbered he chose to co operate since Oren was more then willing to kill him and Godric was very convincing about helping them because his friend, Oren, loves seeing people squirm and scream in agony and pain.

The group made it to the hideout as as Char was in disguise while the others remained hidden and Godric got into position smiling pulling out his musket. Char was able to get in with ease as he saw the leader and gave him the bag but as soon as he turned his back Char threw his weapon right at him killing him instantly as the rest knew what was happening from women screaming. Unkala walked in and did a flare burst to the enemies eyes as he then grabbed the leader’s death body and started to walk out. After some fighting was done they escaped only to be stopped by the “Blades”. They gave the body to the blades and requested that they relinquish the item. Grendel huffed as he handed them the sphere as they walked away. But then Grendel smiled and said. “I love that trick.” he said showing he pulled a magician’s switcheroo.

Once they had finished the pleasantries they headed over to Mr. Dandy and Mr. Sparks. Once they got there they explained they got side tracked and found something interesting but for another time. Mr. Sparks lead them into the living room as he gave the information to them. The Null only targeting people in the political since and people who had ties to the royal family. They had a suspect that was appearing at all of the murder sites thus far.

Also he was able to identify who was the next target. They all then said it was best they go there now and see if they could stop this, “Null” character and get some of the answers they seek. So they left only to find out that they were to late so they decided to split into 3 groups. one would head to the back to cut off anyone that might try to escape. One would go inside to investigate and one would remain in the shadows. Char and Godric would stay in the shadows since it suited them both. Oren and Lily decided to go to the back, while the rest of the group, Unkala, Conrad, Grendel, Mr Dandy and Sparks went inside.

Upon entering they saw it was dark as the put on some lanterns to light the way as they went to the floor where the murder took place. They saw it was dark and gloomy as Unkala went to check some rooms that gave a horrible feeling of magical energies. Upon entering there was blood and what appeared to be black stains on the wall. Seeing as the stains now were turning into hand to reach out Unkala reacted casting the spell, “Light.” onto his sword. Once the room lit up the shadows screamed and 4 figures appeared. “We are the servants of Null.” they said wearing blank masks as now a fight commenced.

Outside the group then saw 5 other figures appear as they were waiting for their comrades. Oren and Lilya saw them and went on the attack as Godric and Char saw them and went to attack also. Godric was a true dead eye. Making each shot count giving them a lot of damage. Lilya was a power house crushing and killing each foe with one swing, and Char was doing surprise attack making most of his attacks to their maximum potential. Oren struggled to keep his magic at bay as he didn’t want to use any spells but his attacks were not working as he tried to keep his distance.

Inside the house Unkala, Godric and Conrad were defeating these Null servants one after another as they saw they could split if they did not kill them in one blow. However they prevailed as they then came out. Godric was then surprised as he was attacked from behind by 2 of the Null servants as he dropped his weapon and went on the attack. Char seeing Godric in peril ran to his aid. Godric was nearly pushed off as by chance he was able to get a rope around his leg to soften stop his fall as Char finished off the 2 Null servants with his shuriken.

Once the battle was over and Godric was safely on the ground they saw the suspect in question holding down a man. Everyone looked as they then saw a tattoo on his face as Oren narrowed his eyes when Sparks and Dandy came out. “Good new guys… that guy on the ground is the Null… bad new… the one holding him down… is the bishop.” said Oren as Char walked away going back to the shadows but everyone else stood their ground as the royal family saw them.

Rook looked at Conrad and smiled as she gave a wink to him before putting her hat down and walked away with the Null. Upon getting back they monastery then exploded as the true Null face of flames and a void of emptiness formed a face as he looked at them all. “All will know nothingness.” before it vanished.

To the party this was only the beginning and their own personal missions would all be tied to one thing. The Dread King and the royal family.

Royalty, Bandits and Chess Pieces.
A new ally and finding Talimos

After the adventurers had defeated these creatures call Unsworn they rested at the left over broken tavern. Tar pools in places were what was left of the Unsworn as they were sleeping. Grendel the companion of the group was keeping an eye out as the others slept.

However a cloaked figure with a strange tophat walked down seeing the destruction. Everyone and everything that once was was either ravaged or destoryed but strange all the people were gone as if taken any survivers were huddled in cornors scared from the horrors of that night. The Man was Oren Drakeheart servant of the crown, captial and church. He was sent to investigate and report back to the crown once he had answers.

He saw that the only place that wasn’t destoryed was the taven so he decided to investigate. Upon arriving he met Grendal and the others that were there. Leaning all that transpired Oren explained that he didn’t notice this because of his job but he did introduce himself. He also agreed to help them since he was sent to investiage the area. However once inside they then heard the sounds of bones crunching and a black tar monster that was walking. It was huge and Oren went on edge but Grendel stopped him. Even Unkala was a bit wanting to fight but everyone saw that it was pointless fighting something so huge. Not to mention there was a small white tar figure beside it but it wasn’t an Unsworn. Upon closer inspection it had a symbol of a rook on it… and this Rook appeared female.

After a tense stand off the adventurers decided not to fight and the Large Tar beast called a “Maker” walked away with the “Rook”. With all cleared they decided to head to the King together and report. Once there one guard stopped them as he ordered them to explain themselves. Oren slowly looked up and just glared.

“OH it’s you…” said the Guard. “Yes, it’s me… William.” he said sternly as everyone could feel the tension could be cut with a rusted knife. “Here to see the king?” William asked sternly. “Yes.” Said Oren sternly back as finally the doors were finally opened.

Upon entering the throne room Oren bowed and so did Unkala. With some manly bonding and explaining the king learned everything and felt it was very troubling. Grendel explained that their only choice was to find Talimos for the moment because right now they had barely any information. All agreed but the King warned them that 2 waring bandits occupied where they were heading. Oren gave his word that he would deal with these and try and find out any more info.

They left in haste but as they left, thanks to Unkala and Char’s voice of reason, William was being “Royally Discipline” by a wooden paddle as he was screaming and yelling. “I’M SORRY!”

Upon reaching the territory they learned that the 2 waring bandits were the Blood Ravens, and the PUssy Willows. Seeing they were closer to Blood Raven Territory they became more and more wary. Finding a Blood Raven trap they were able to escape quickly and soon after some convincing Bluffs they were accepted into the Blood Ravens and also were now into a full on war with PUssy Willows.

Everyone with the help of the Blood Ravens defeated the PUssy Willows lackies, while Char using his ninja skills and bluffs was able to get the PUssy Willow leader and his great General to go outside and be ready for battle. Char quickly thew his shurikins killing them both by slicing through their necks as he smiled to himself. Finaly after the battle was over the Blood Ravens had the PUssy Willos disamred and had them do an unconditional surrender. Oren was able to get in and find a lot of information on Talimos and a map of where they were heading. With the battle over everyone was getting some down time as Oren showed the contents of the journal, torn pages and maps. Grendel went off angry as Oren continued to read what he could understand.

Moments later Grendel came up to the Blood Raven Leader as he was angry getting his attention he put both of his guns into the mouth of the blood raven leader and pulled the trigger blowing off his head clean off. He then pulled out both his wonders seconds later and summoned a red dragon to laid waist to the entire group as there were now only 3 survivors.

Grendel realized that after doing such a powerful spell he ripped the fabrics of time and space and paradoxes could happen from any spell. He warned everyone, Oren mostly, any magic was restricted for the entire day.

Unkala went and got the armor as he smiled loving the Blood Raven Armor as he waited to get it cleaned off. As they continued onward they then were stopped by another white tar like creature that formed into a man wearing armor but then symbol he had was that of the “Knight.” He warned them that if they continued they would find only death but our Adventurers said they had to press on.

Upon getting to the town they say there were 5 “Makers” yet 2 were at a well and one was walking around, while the last 2 were guarding the mists.

Unkala and Char sneaked into the Hospital hearing laughter while Oren sneaked into the armory. Upon entering they all saw people scared but trying to stay quiet. Unkala and Char investigated the laughing and saw it was Talimos that had gone mad from being within the mist. They learned what they could as they then prepared themselves for the upcoming battle. Oren on the other had gotten the trust of the people to help out. Getting a sharper sword for himself. He also saw lanterns and came up with the idea that if they could be ignited it could prove advantageous and asked for the help of one to throw them at the enemies and he would do his best to ignite the flames. Getting the consent of one he then got ready to fight.

Finally all started to fight, the makers, the 2 unsworn that were made and now what appeared to be something coming from the well itself. the battle raged for what seemed forever and it seemed they were losing until Oren took a huge gamble and cast a spell to help everyone. It helped more then he could hope for. The rip in space and time cause the ground to break open and 2 of the makers fell to their deaths then the ground closed back up sealing them to their fate.

After a few more fighting took place as the “Rook” and “Pawn” presented themselves. Wanting to kill Grendel but still everyone refused and thus causing them to retreat as our adventurers continued fighting.

Soon they stood victorious but exhausted as they went to rest their weary bodies and minds. They slept and recouporated for 2 days finding out that Talimos had escaped his Hospital bed and ran into the mist. Restocking and preparing for the adventure they left to the mists and thanks to Grendel he opened the way as they ran in.

Upon running in they saw huge mechanical beasts walk on by as Char ran into its foot head on then slowly slid off. The beast just looked at the group then walked on off as they all then got back to running as the mists were starting to close back up. They were able to make it as they saw they were in some sort of tube and floating to a location as monsterous sea creatures bashed against the tube they were in. Upon entering they saw they were in a mechanical kingdom seeing everyone of metal and electronics. After a few awe inspiring ordeals they learned that they needed to take what Char called an Iron Horse. A train to take them from one place to another. The boarded and listened to conversations hearing about a man that was in white robes and seemed unstable. The group heard and asked the last whereabouts hearing he was heading towards the captial city near the castle. Also, a young figure appeared before them as they saw on her forehead the symbol of the “Pawn.” Oren was a little shocked as he put his hand on his sword but Char stopped him. Listening to the “Pawn’s” words she said that her big brother would take care of them then left at the next stop smiling and skipping away.

The group now had reason to be on edge. They had to find Talimos, find Grendel’s ally to inquire about these chess pieces and now they had to worry about another chess piece they did not encounter. And the way things were going they all thought that the only chess piece they haven’t encountered was “Bishop”.

Clearly things were going to get stranger for our adventurers before they could have any reason to relax.

A Man From Beyond the Mists
The Story Begins

-PC’s in Elidia(Unkala had sex with a “woman” and was upstairs the whole night) meet a strange man(Grendel) who tells them of the mist and invites them to accompany him north and help him
-attacked by the Unsworn in Elidia. killed a townsman and threw it into the tavern. Grendel warned everyone not to touch it, as to would turn into the monster. at daylight Grendel threw it outside and as it changed Godric took aim at the hideous abomination of a man and blew a hole in its head. the mans wife weeped as she watched her dead husband come back to life, suffer and die again. she cursed Godric.
- they left Elidia heading along the major roads north to Moravia City they met
gypsies along the way, they were attacked by unsworn, Grendel promised to end the monsters once and for all
-got to Moravia City, went to the Holy District, Godric and Conrad(Nick) went to the Trinity Church while Char went to the Missionaries of the lotus and Unkala picked a fight with a Rahakian warrior named Boris. Unkala narrowly escaped the duel with his life as Boris and Unkala left severe wounds on each other simultaneously. as the fighters lie wounded, unconscious and bleeding out, The party rushed forward and argued for the lives of both men, as it was a religious rite that those who fall in battle would be sacrificed to a blood tree. Godric gave a speech about the value of strength in combat and the Rahakians, rather than killing Unkala and Boris, nursed them back to health. afterwords the party went to the broken talon inn owned by Grendel’s friend
-The party stayed at the broken talon inn and halfway through the night it was attacked by an unsworn. The creature shreaked and started wrecking the place. It planned to attack Grendel, telling the party that they could go, he only wanted the magician Godric shouted “Well we kinda need him” to which the unsworn replied “Then you die” Godric took aim saying “you first” and fired sending a musket ball deep in the chest of the creature. next Unkala Swung his dueling blades and slashed at the fresh wound of the creature, then finally Char ran behind the beast and slit its throat. Grendel congratulated the party on the impressive kill, saying they did a great job killing a baby. the party cleaned up and went to sleep

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
