One of the arena's wizard come and casts make whole on your items restoring them all. You are told this was done for free as it was found out that Pitch Blade worked for Raknian and were given permission by him to kill you as well as starting out with more spells than allowed.

Now that Raknian is gone there will be no more stacking the deck against you.

Hearing that Pitch Blade was cheating, Aarakess looks to Kilthan and chuckles.
Cheating certainly did not help them much.

Justin considers the news about the dwarves, and it shakes his belief in dwarves even more. "Cheaters and murderers. I may have to take them for judgement."

"And, I do like their swords!!"

"Perhaps after washing up and a bit of rest we can attempt to discover what type of monster they intend to pit us against?" Rohara suggests.

She does move to remove her armor and as she does mentions, "As I was considering the blessings that I could have this day, there were a few interesting ones that might have been useful, if we were not subject to the limit."

She will go on to explain those spells...

Spells discussed:
Ironskin (2nd level spell)
Duration 10 minutes

You gain a +5 enhancement bonus to your existing natural armor bonus
While you're under the effects of this spell, if an opponent confirms a critical hit or sneak attack against you with a physical weapon (not a spell or magical effect), you can dismiss this spell to negate the critical hit or sneak attack and treat it is as a normal hit. Dismissing the spell in this way is not an action, but you must be conscious and aware of the attack to do so.

Badger's Ferocity (3rd level spell)
Duration: Concentration, Range: 50ft

This functions like keen edge, except it affects multiple weapons and requires your concentration. You select the weapons to be affected, and can only affect one weapon per creature. If a creature’s weapon exceeds the spell’s range, the spell ends for that weapon.

If there anything else people are interested in, let me know...

She than cleans up and before leaving [ooc](With company would be nice)[ooc] in an attempt to find out what manner of monster they will be fighting. Diplmacy (Gather Information): 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (15) + 15 = 30

Kilthan lifts his restored waraxe, testing its balance with a few careful practice swings before tying it back in place with a satisfied nod. "I'm just glad there's no permanent damage done.... though, given what they tried to do and what it could have cost... I don't much like the thought of Pitch Blade getting away with their cheating."

Brandishing the silver statute Skorhald says, "I think this should be kept by Aarakess, to remind her of the beauty of all things dwarven... and I think we all deserve an ale or six after facin' off with that lot."

With that the dwarf looks to find the appropriate pub to celebrate their victory and the minor celebrity status the fights are giving to the group.


You still have to stay in the Coenoby until the tournament is over. Also remember Justin that Pitch Blade's possessions need to be returned at the end of the fight, despite their cheating.

Justin nods reluctantly as he returns the nice greatsword.

He also is excited by the iron skin spell. I don't think it stacks with amulet of natural armor, but it is good.


The next day brings about the next round of fighting. Last two year's champions, Auric's Warband, faced Draconic Brood. Auric's group manages the Brood effortlessly, moving on once again to the final round.

You are up next in the special monster fight. The crowd cheers you on as they release the Froghemoth. The three eyed frog like creature proves to be a challenge at first using its reach and grapple abilities, but soon enough you overcome its defense and win the day. The crowd roars with glee at the exhibition.

The next day the final battle begins. Auric's warband consists of Auric and Khellek (whom you met in Diamond Point during your fist days there) and their group of flesh golems. The good natured Auric gets right up close into the fight, while the scowling Khellek throws spells from a distance. As the fights before they give you a fight to the end, but you win the championship and become this year's champions!

The kicks off a week of celebration in the city. While you would like to enjoy yourselves, you know you need to throughly investigate the area below. In conjunction with the new arena organizer that replaced Raknian after he fled and the authorities you make sure there is no threats beneath the arena left.

Authorities are still looking for Raknian, who fled with his bodyguard into areas unknown.

Three or four days later, you decide to take the information you gathered in the arena as well as the Apostolic Scroll used to summon the ulgurstasta to Eligos.

When you ring the bell, Pollard does not come out to greet you like he has every other time you have come. You open the outer gate and head to the door. The door is unlocked and when opened, it reveals a ghastly scene. Body parts of both Eligos and Pollard are everywhere. Pools of blood and splatters of blood are on the floors, walls, and ceilings. The killings were done to prevent either from being raised. Written in blood is a message for you, "He died helping you. I will kill you and anyone else that tries to help you. See you soon."

You search Eligos's house for any other clues and find hidden a bundle of notes and observations that catalog what Eligos has learned about the Age of Worms. There is a note from Eligos on top that reads, "My dear friend Allustan - What your adventurers stumbled into sickens my soul. Every new leaf I turn reveals and even darker secret. Here are my notes. You must take them to our one-time master, although I fear that even he may be ill-equipped for what writhes in all of our futures. Until then....." The note is unfinished.

This is where I leave it off to you!

Justin shakes his fist in frustration as Eligos' death and that of his assistant takes some of the taste of victory from his mouth. He also reflects that his enjoyment of the martial combat may not have been what paladins are supposed to enjoy, but at heart he was still a lizardman warrior from the Mushfens too.

Justin looks up and yells: "Rakniiiiiaaaan!!"

He looks to Aarakess and Rohara, whose council he had come to value highly. "What do we do next??"


Vitals (Kilthan):
(HP: 119/119; AC: 22(24)/14/20(22); CMD: 25; Fort +11, Ref: +8, Will: +4 [+6]; Rage: 8/8)
Male Half-Elven Ranger (Infiltrator): 9/Bloodrager (Spelleater): 1
Vitals (Jagdbach):
(HP: 81/81 (105/105); AC: 25(23)/13(11)/22(20); CMD: 23 (25) {27 (29) trip}; Fort +9(+11), Ref: +10, Will: +3(+5); {+4 v. enchantments})

Kilthan snarls, "The work of a coward...."

He turns quickly to face the others, speaking as his thoughts race, and then slowly trailing off as he fleshes out the idea somewhat more, "I can try to track the people who did this.... Problem is that city streets aren't the best for leaving prints.... and while normally Jagdbach would be able to help by picking up their scent... scents fade with time....especially in a crowd... and, that's assuming they didn't use magic to get here."

He sighs and suggests, "We should get this work to Allustan -- though I think having Aara, Rohara and Skorhald read it would be useful -- maybe it will link up with some old half-forgotten lore one of them learned." He then shakes himself as a terrible thought locks into place, "Allustan has been helping us -- we should warn him."


Lizardman hp=108/108(AC24/ff24/t11) {F=+12/R=+6/W=+9} CMD 26 Paladin 10 (Shining Knight) Smite evil 4/4 - Lay on hands 7/7

Justin responds:
"We should get to Allustan, now!!!"

Shaking his head at the carnage, Skorhald says, "Aye coward's work. Afraid to confront us... we need to end this before more carnage comes.

In response to Justin.

"Yes, and more importantly to this former master that seems to be who we need to talk to. Let us gather gear and prepare for the journey."


Kilthan knows it is probably pointless to try and track, but he tries anyways with expected results. Raknian has escaped....for now. Looking through the contents of Eligos's notes to Allustan, much of it contains the events you related to him, as well as things about ancient cults, undead, and ancient history. While an interesting read, you are not sure exactly how it ties together.

You get ready for your 3 days journey back to Diamond Point. You are flush with money, so you take a trip through the markets before heading out of the city.

Split and spend your gold and items!


HP 110 of 110 - AC 24 (T 13, FF 21) - F +10, R +5, W +12

Rohara places a comforting hand in Justin's shoulder, "Worry not my friend, we will get this Raknian."

She will help gather up anything important to their quest at hand. Afterward, she will address the party, "With a little time and preparation I can warn those we care about with a Sending spell. Besides Aullustan, if there are others who should be warned, please let me know."

"As we are withing a major city, this would be the opportunity to make any purchases that we might need before we continue. And if we are all willing, both Aarakess and myself have magics that allow for long distance teleportation."

(At present Teleportation can teleport up 3 others each, upto 1000 miles, with a 97% on target chance as I think we are very familiar with Diamond Point at this point in our adventures.)


You can most certainly use teleportation. You know your house just outside of town good enough to teleport there as very familiar. I think one spell from Rohara and one from Aarakess should be able to transport the whole party.

If you decide to cast sending, decide on your 25 words or less message

Aarakess shakes her head sadly at the mess.
Perhaps we could raise him? Or find a way to communicate with Eligos and Pollard to learn what happened.

After she says this, she realizes that it is likely hopeless.
We need to get to Allustan before someone else does to warn him of what we have found and to discover what else ho night know.

As she says this, even with all the bloodshed and death she has seen, Aarakess' stomach begins to turn. It is only because of her newfound dwarven constitution that she is able to hold down her breakfast.

Lets find what we need here in the city, and then get heading to see what insight Allustan might have.

Justin begins preparing for magical transportation. His mount will have to be included, he can't make Iomedae angry.


HP 110 of 110 - AC 24 (T 13, FF 21) - F +10, R +5, W +12

Rohara prepares a Sending spell for Allustan which takes time to gain the spell for a slot she left open and than prepares the spell... After 25 minutes she casts the spell...

Sending Spell to Allustan:

We're fine. Watch for deadly trouble. Raknian of Magnimar killed Eligos, vows to kill all others who help us. Returning soonest. Passphrase: Juniper, Counter: Ashen.


Rohara:
No return message is received. It isn't a requirement of the spell to return a message, but it seems like he would have return one.


Vitals (Kilthan):
(HP: 119/119; AC: 22(24)/14/20(22); CMD: 25; Fort +11, Ref: +8, Will: +4 [+6]; Rage: 8/8)
Male Half-Elven Ranger (Infiltrator): 9/Bloodrager (Spelleater): 1

Kilthan nods at Aara's suggestion, "We are here and have immediate access to a marketplace -- given that we can teleport, we should take the time to equip ourselves well enough to make a real difference.."
