Tales of the Bloodstone Lands

A Long Road Indeed....

Mirtul 6, Year of Rogue Dragons
As the Magnificent Seven rouse themselves from slumber and prepare for the long march to bring midwife Elara to the Monastery of the Yellow Rose for the safekeeping of her testimony about the false claim of Helmont the XV to the Ducal Seat; they are met in the hidden burrow by another Elder of the Halfling Downs. He leads the group for several days through winding tunnels (the tallest even having to crawl and hands and knees at some times… Finally the last day of underground travel leads out a tunnel putting them within sight of the Fanewood…

The next day the company heads into the woods to avoid any patrols of Helmont or his allies… Near the end of the day the Magnificent Seven’s tracker, Jinx, misses the obvious signs of a troll hole and kobold activity and leads the company into a confrontation… A quick attempt to parlay by Adept Tai with the beasts leads to an attempted ambush… Swarmed by a kobold mob and a forest troll, heavy damage is take by the group… Ser Buckthorn charges the troll and trades blow for blow while the party handles the Kobold vermin… Eventually the troll’s regeneration outpaces the gnomish knight’s furious rage and he falls broken beneath the troll.. The companions battle until the Kobold horde is dealt with, then the fire brought to bear on the troll by Tai is able to end the monster… Weary from marching and battle the company takes refuge near the troll hole figuring few forest denizens would risk this territory…

The next day of travel through the Fanewood lead the company perriosuly close a giant spider infested tract… Noticing the signs the company decides to circumvent the area… Luckily Jinx’s woodcraft is so advanced he was able to still keep our pace on target despite the detours… Traveling a bit into the night but we are to put the Fanewood behind us by rest… Adept Tai unveils a new ritual he learned and provides a magical dome of force to rest in safety… It turns out incredibly useful as in the morning we find large arachnid tracks about our camp… If we set watch we might have seen what stalked us… Lessons learned…

Mirtul 10, Year of Rogue Dragons
Several days of the Seven traveling trough the plains of Southern Morildon… Taking care to stay off main roads and generally stealthy travel is the modus operandi of the group… An afternoon of travel finds their path crossing a pack of ankehgs out and on the hunt… The giant burrowing insects burst out of the ground and fight the companions with vicious mandibles and squirted streams of vicious acid to wound and maim… Yet once again the company defeats the monsters…

Mirtul 12, Year of Rogue Dragons
Nearing the last day of travel before reaching the edge of the Duchy and the border town of Pierscalm the company is waylaid by bounty hunters… The battle is vicious and eventually the Seven prevail… They followed the tracts back to the bounty hunters camp… Going through the campsite reveals the information that carrier pigeon had relayed our sighting to back to Ravensburg… The company also takes possession of a magical chest that provides food for a small band once a day… The chest already empty, the remaining pigeons are cooked an eaten… Delicious…

The group sends Adept Tai into the town to secure a boat across the river but the gig is up… An accurate wanted poster is hung in the town square… Luckily the Duke is a dick and not liked by the small folk… A boat is chartered and we get across into Arcata… Also Tai finds out a contingent of Ducal guards recently ferried across… Also Reed is enraged by the inaccurate, husky representation of him on the wanted poster… He vows vengeance.

Mirtul 13, Year of Rogue Dragons
The long pass winds and twists into the Earthspur Mountains and lead up the glacier… Before long we encounter Sir Guthrim and a contingent of Ducal Guard waiting in ambush… The two sides charge and Sers Guthrim and Buckthorn clash in the middle of the battle line! The battle rages on the tight mountain pass and after a few minutes the Magnificent seven defeat the forces of Helmont the False and Ser Buckthorn accepts the surrender of the last remaining guard, a sergeant.. There is a brief fight between Jinx and Buckthorn over the right to offer quarter and the right to slay… An uneasy truce falls amongst the party…

Mirtul 14, Year of Rogue Dragons
The next day of mountainous travel finds the band under attack by a yeti pack… The group defeats the pack fairly easily but during the battle old wounds are opened between Buckthorn and Jynx over the prisoner… Luckily the Monastery is near and hopefully tensions will be lowered in it’s relative safety…
