DM Devon's RotRL aka "The Heroes of Sandpoint"

Game Master PirateDevon

Something sinister is happening in Sandpoint and only our heroes can stop it. See what happens when a group loses DM after DM and yet the heroes forge on!

"Again, I tend to agree with master Darlock..."

Cristiel signs at the sight of the trapped soul, "It will probably cost us time and injury if the rage she is displaying is turned on us but I agree with Rullis. Every soul trapped beyond its time in this place is a testament to the necromancer's evil. Each one released from servitude is one less trophy for the foul one to gloat about."


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

"Sounds good to me! Where to next?"


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

Sayniek shuts the door:
Lets find the necromancer first. We can always return here to free this lost soul when we are better prepared.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

"Do not despair, dealing with yon death botherer may be enough, and if not, I believe that we will find the key within these four walls eventually.
It may sound cruel more than pragmatic, but death is eternal, she can afford to wait a moment longer, the living that are threatened cannot."

Even if I am foaming at the mouth with desire for vengeance myself at this point...


Okay so wailing woman gets to stay wailing. There are a couple doors on this level or its back down all the way to main floor.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

Camillo checks the next door, perhaps a little too eagerly.


Camillo moves across the hall, eager to leave the wailing woman behind.
After checking the door and opening it Sayniek stands at the threshold of what looks like a study.

Shelves of books line the wall with the occasional curiosity such as skulls fitted with candles, scroll cases and what not sit among the books. An empty birdcage sits next to a small desk and fine leather chair while a series of small statues and sculptures decorate the nooks and crannies of the space. They all seem to have a morbid or leering quality which adds an air of ominous intent to the room.


Male Half Orc Barbarian 3 / Oracle 1, Perception +5, Darkvision, Fort +6/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :47

Kithian follows along behind Camillo, king dust up as he walks.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

"Looks like what I would expect for someone with the stained glass windows below, I think." He looks around, "Next room?"


So we are passing the library by then? Sorry it took me this long to notice that but I want to be sure.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

I'm not particular. Camillo didn't see anything 'live' in here, so he's moving forward as that seemed to be the method.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

Yeh, I think that we are checking each room for bad guys and traps, and will then double back and search each one for anything of value or note.


Sorry got hit by some nasty crud and my mind has been out of it...in fact I thought I posted in this thread at one point...but clearly didnt.

Thge last remaining door on this floor seems safe and Sayniek opens it.

A desk and chair sit in the middle of the room while chimneys (two) mark the west wall. More intricate stained glass mark the eastern. The Northernmost window depicts a dark-hairedwoman with pale skin, large green eyes, and ablack-and-red gown; with both hands she wields a jagged iron staff. The southern window's lower half has been broken and patched with canvas; what remains of its upper half depicts a handsome man
dressed in regal finery and a crown of ivory and jade.

Scorch marks mar the wood near the broken window. A battered and ruined telescope lies on its side near the desk and a large trap door that leads to the roof has been tied shut by several lengths of rope.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

"Yet another false end, we best not linger, let us move on."


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

Camillo considers the images in the stained glass for a moment before turning to go.

Knowledge check: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (1) + 4 = 5 for Dungeoneering, History, Nobility or Religion; another +1 for Local; all other knowledge checks remain untrained

Clearly frustrated by his lack of recall, he mutters, "I would expect these were probably someone real. If we knew who, it might give a clue into his nature."


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

Vidar looks at the windows for a moment, then he shrugs and snorts loudly.
"If you cannot recall them, and I cannot either, we can only assume they were not overly important locally or historically."


LOL, I love that chain of logic Vidar.

Okay so that is all of floors 2 and 3. Back to floor 1 and see what is up?


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

"We have gone as far up as we are able to, perhaps it is time we tried descending, because I feel that the closer we are to hell, the closer we will be to the truth.
Let us attempt to find a way down into a basement, if there is one, and being a mansion like this, I am sure there is."


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

Sayniek nods at Vidar's comment:
Yup, and we all know that undead tend to rise from the ground, so searching beneath the ground is a likely option.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

Vidar gives Sayniek a terse nod.
"Now you are thinking like a necromancer.
...
...
Don't!"

The snap is immediately followed a grin and a wink.
"One necromancer is more than enough at the moment."


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

"Agreed. Let's return downstairs."


Male Half Orc Barbarian 3 / Oracle 1, Perception +5, Darkvision, Fort +6/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :47

"By Gorum's spiked codpeice it is about damn time!"


Female Elf Magus (Bladebound Kensai) 4
Spoiler:
hp 31/31 // AC 19/17/12 // F +5/R +5/W +4 // Init +6 // Perc +5(+7) // Effects: none

Cristiel nods in agreement, "Now that we are sure nothing unforeseen will descend upon us from the heights, let us take the fight to the necromancer in the depths!"


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

Sayniek looks at the elf, surprise showing on her face.
Nothing from above? You clearly did not read many stories growing up. While we have not found any normal creatures lying in wait up here, we still have to crying ghost woman and who knows what other ghostly horrors the walls of this godforsaken mansion holds.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

"Not to mention, Vidar speaks with a grim satisfaction, the possibility of a number of undead creatures hiding on the roof, to descend later like so many vile spiders."


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

"You keep that up, and I'm going to have trouble sleeping tonight."

Actually, I think I am way past that already...

Camillo heads down stairs to the room with the manticore. I think that was at the base of the stairs. Can we get a reprise of what we see here?


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

Vidar merely chuckles darkly and ominously before following Camillo.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

Sayniek chuckles at Cam and Vidar's exchange.
I prefer being the one that causes nightmares, especially to anyone who would even consider creating these unholy abominations.

With that, she also follows behind the party's bard.


Work decided to open up a massive can of beat down on me this week. I will get a good post up in the next day or so to reprise the ground floor and maybe fast forward a bit to get us back on track, sorry that things have stuttered so much I appreciate the patience.


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

No problem, RL has hit me with a bit of a curveball recently as well. I am mostly keeping up and look forward to moving on to get this troubled house cleansed.


Male Half Orc Barbarian 3 / Oracle 1, Perception +5, Darkvision, Fort +6/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :47

Fire cleanses very well. Just saying.


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

When this is over, you and me are going to put our Arcane/Divine heads together and invent something to burn stone, and something that burns downwards.
Try to hide in the cellars? Good luck...

Lava is a good option. Any chance you know a Summon Volcano spell?


So my post got eaten...or I hit preview instead of post and congratulated myself and walked away...probably that one, sorry.

The group descends back to the ground floor, the occasional wail of the undead woman upstairs or wind peaked groan of the house punctuating the otherwise eerily silent house.

Once more the group finds itself in the foyer with the strange manticore as they shuffle off the stairs and extend their search on this level. Weaving through the rooms the group is greeted with more strange oddities.

A dining room, wash room, lounge, parlor and library are all rooms on this level. With strange knick knacks and more stained glass with odd depictions marking the various corners of the house. Save for the connected dining room the group is sure to stay in the foyer/hall and not enter any of the rooms having become overly cautious given their experiences upstairs.

A staircase is discovered that leads down parallel to the staircase that went upstairs. Also the group notices a strange pattern mostly covered by a rug in the transition area between the foyer and the dining room...

Stairs down but I didn't want to presume that you flip up the rug through the pattern looks elaborate from what you can see. Let me know if you want any more detail on a specific room but I figure at this point you guys pretty much refuse to go anywhere if you can help it, lol


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

Is the pattern something that was built into the floor or is it something that seems to have been applied to the floor afterwards? (I'm thinking of whether it is a pattern in a tile floor vs a pattern in something laying on the tile floor.)


Post construction, a cursory glance would suggest paint or some other stain. You would need to pull the rug back to be certain but it might be mold like in the other rooms?


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

Sayniek looks down at the pattern.
I suppose we should see what this is. Everyone want to step back while I pull back the carpet.

Once the rest of the group has at least partially removed themselves from harms way, the diminutive paloracle will move the carpet back to see what it reveals.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

"Good idea."

Camillo will try to position himself to see that is revealed, but be back several feet.


Sayniek pulls up the rug and is rewarded for her work with an elaborate circular symbol indeed made from mold stained into the very fiber of the wood. Stepping back and considering it you all note that it has the appearance of a spiraling staircase turning ever so downward to some undefined destination...


Male Human (Ulfen) Wizard (Enhancer) 4

"I do not need a druid, ten years of studies or anything else for that matter, to tell me that mould forming that pattern is deeply unnatural."


Female Assimar(Idyllkin) Oracle of Battle/2 - Paladin/2 [HP 46/46; AC27,T12,FF26; F+10,R+5,W+10; Per+7; Init +1]

Sayniek nods in agreement:
Yes, unnatural and vile. Whoever, or whatever, created these shall have vengeance brought upon them for this horrid creation and all other the other acts they have committed.


Bard (Arcane Duelist) 2/Rogue 2 AC 21/14/17, hp 25/25; Effect:

"Does anyone recognize the symbol?"

Knowledge: 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (6) + 4 = 10 Dungeoneering, History, Nobility or Religion; Local checks have another +1

Bah! Not that it matters with that roll!


Male Half Orc Barbarian 3 / Oracle 1, Perception +5, Darkvision, Fort +6/ Ref +1/ Will +2, Init +4, AC 18, HP :47

Know religion: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (12) + 5 = 17
