It’s been a long and difficult journey thus far, we’ve lost people along the way and found new ones at every corner. Even when this adventure really first started new and interesting people kept coming in their lives. It started for Erima inside the Imperial Arms Inn when the pillar was attacked and she met her first companions Tybalt, Hugo, Kaleb, Robyn and of course Cormac that’s also the day I was drafted into service by Fall.
No one is going to believe this…
We left Fallscliff in the company of Darvid Harrolan and traveled along the dwarven tunnels. We saw many surprises along the way including Hardemere Keep. That’s where my brother decided to stay and when we got to meet the Shroud close up. It’s also where I got my new friend and source of entertainment Isis and we came across a interesting fellow who calls himself the Wanderer. We ran into Duule shortly after crossing the border and found that some were against the current rule. If Barakesh was going to be free and Fallscliff safe their king would need to be removed and that is exactly what we did but in the process we nearly lost Robyn and we did lose Fall even after all of our victories I was shown how inadequate I was at the time. At that time Hugo took the ring from Fall promising to finish the job. After Barakesh was free the Wanderer left shortly after doing what he did best.
W..words fail.. I can’t even..
We set back to Fallscliff to find information and I also ran into my friend Charlotte whom was in town, I also found out that life went on while I was away. The children I used to care for had grown and moved on, it had gotten me to think about doing the same finally. It was also the first time in a very long time I was asked out. I think Tybalt just needed someone to travel with at the time or to show off Isis enjoyed the attention. We had a new course into the cold depths of the freelands with info of Fall’s killer it was a long and cold journey which was made better when Charlottle joined us and when we came across the hding spot of Fall’s killer he was dealt with and more of the villian Andi’s history came to light but in the process we lost Kaleb to the clutches of the evil mastermind.
How is this even possible.. it’s so..
We lost Charlotte and her husband in a city devastated by Karnas. I found that she and Darrelon
were selected by the gods as avatars but were no longer able to stay with us. Sadly we had to part after a few of my tearful goodbyes and we moved deeper into the freelands. Hugo was getting close to the second fragment of Fall’s request but were assaulted by a massive group of kobolds claiming we were in their holy lands. We nearly all died.. but in the process we lost Hugo and I took up his duties to Fall. After we traversed the tower and gained a new and somewhat interesting ally, Finkle we located the second fragment and were granted special powers by the Pantheon (whom Tybalt still vehemently suggests do not really exist). We returned back to Fallscliff for some much needed rest and I set out to locate where the rest of the fragments were.
Was it always this bright.. and the sky.. it’s blue..
Karnas was our next stop we were sent as part of a diplomatic envoy to ensure peace between the two nations. I a priestess of nature and life going into the heart of the undead domain, yea.. this did not seem weird at all. The trip was mostly uneventful since there was a large escort and upon arrival there was a grand banquet where the ambassador and Oq began workings to keep the peace. This was also the same night that Tybalt and I were together for the first time. (well for me.. not him heaven’s no not him..). Upon leaving we were attacked in part by our own escort and somehow were able to survive, when further investigated the Baroness had been summoning demons (or devils.. sometimes it’s hard to remember) and since we were there guess who went in after her. We lost Duule Vanessa and a magus named Victor who joined us on this trip, we have no idea where they ended up but we gained Ulkraga in the misshap who loves shouting and kicking things a lot it was possible she was from the future since she remembered a world without the shroud (I also found out that I may have infact cause the only follower of Alliur to build a church in Karnas too). We located the baroness who infact was being used to summon the creatures and the one we met was actually a fake. The best we could do was ease her suffering.
Are those wings.. I can’t see.. everything is to..
We returned to Fallscliff again as heros.. again whom needed much rest when I found out a bit from my past. A letter was left by the Wanderer that explained past where the should could of come from.. and the fast that I was related to him which would in fact explain Isis but now I knew that the same blood that cursed this world in darkness runs through my veins as well. That same night after I ran this over in my head until it hurt I was made the happiest I could of ever been in my life, what Tybalt asked me was something.. I really didn’t expect or at least not at that time but goes to show you after so many years you can still be surprised by a guy you thought you knew. We were then joined by a catfolk sorcerer named Tamsin Feralpaw a Halfling ranger named Apathy Bandawax and a warrior Odion Eldric (mind you this.. do not bathe the barbarian you lose parts) and soon we were summoned to Roget’s keep (Roget was the Baroness’s brother) where we found them both to be changlings both of them attempted to escape but by sheer luck we caught one of them deep under Fallscliff in the hands of a civilization of dark elves. We also found the third fragment there. Days after Tybalt and I were wed (I still do not remember that night before and certain people would not let me use magics to make the throbbing go away) and were offered entrance to the Merfolk Isle where the next fragment was. We ended up being attacked by elves and ended up capturing four of them. The elves had declared war…
By the divines.. it’s could eat Fallscliff in one night…
Out time on the Isle was short, we located the fragment easily enough but ended up getting into a fight with a giant Kraken which was dispatched. It was not until after when a random object came crashing down from the sky flooding part of the city and taking Isis away from me. At that time we found that Darvid not only was a historian but freelanced as a meteorite by accident because he go too close to the shroud. (He’s also.. invincible.. go figure..) We left there and went again overseas to the far north to deal with some Ice Trolls, or giants and ended up meeting a giant Wurm along with the Trolls. Somehow we survived and after assisting the Trolls with some slight.. cursed issues we were allowed to enter their underground domain where we came upon the next fragment carried by a Troll whom I could not even explain.. you’d have to of been there. When we left and got the nomads and the Trolls together they were able to put to rest any fear of animosity between them since it was the Wurms that were forcing the Trolls to move. When we left we were joined by the Ice Troll lead hunter Tygis Harler
Can this honestly be real?
Now here I sit at after returning to Hardemere and regaining Isis again and finding out the Wanderer was here to (AND dying might I add). Inching our way though the shroud and finding an entire city on the other side. Did I mention I can see the SUN and there is a massive gold scaled DRAGON staring at us deciding what it should do.. after all this I can only seem to mutter the most undignified thing I have ever said…
“…. Holy shit….”
