Song of Brew & Ire

Some of us slept!
And we got a horse

Recap from Kim

We are downstairs, Ameiko is there. It’s 4am. We hear the children whimpering. There are guts all around. Ameiko grabs the girls and runs upstairs. We are following her. Cautious for the sounds of fighting that we hear.

Town guards run up – one gets killed. Ameiko runs with the kids – is headed over the bridge – we are following. We hear goblins in each tower. They are shooting at people on bridge.

We split – Nastunye & Monkey & I up one and others on other. Arrows hit guard. Ness casts dog sounds. Melon smashes into the door and falls back (critical fumble).

Monkey Kool-aid Man’s right through the trap door on that side – there are 3 goblins, Ellwood slices one in half. Ellwood takes 6 damage.

The other side – double dwarf – can’t get the door open. Ness tries the polearm. Melon defeats the door with a CRIT!

Nastunye charges through the trap door and engages the goblins—a wolverine sneak attack slaughters the goblin—cold dagger through the mouth out the back of the head. Monkey engages the third goblin on the south tower and slaughters another goblin. Monkey see monkey do – imitates Nastunye’s moves!

Other side “Mace to the Face” – Bono yells “surrender or die” and smashes one. Melon tries to jump up and grab one by the ankles and pull it down! He hits his head for 4 damage.

Nastunye arrows the other tower, 2 damage. Bono is unconscious. Ness kills one. Melon throws one down the stairs. He is now a bloody stain. Melon says “sorry about the door”.

Ellwood, Gecko and Monkey head over the bridge. Gogmurt slashes the bridge, he’s mad we were killing goblins. Ellwood turns into a parrot so as not to fall to his death, other animals easily climb back to island.

Melon hits for 6. Goblin face smooshing in slow mo. Nastunye loots. Because she is Nastunye. Gets 3 short bows 3 short swords, leather armor (3), about about a gold worth of silver coin.

I fly by girls and nobody is attacking them. I see Gogmurt but see only him. Melon does double punch and kills the last one. He whispers while he falls – “sorry about the door”.

Nastunye shoots at Gogmurt.

Goblins on the other side = 3 normal ones carrying normal things
boss is carrying masterwork horse chopper – 1d8+1

Attack on the town from many goblin tribes. Town and convoy got attacked at the same time. Goblins all around the forest – now they are all mad at us.

We examine rest of the top floor – there is a pen that is locked with a steel door and we hear something stomping inside. Sounds like a horse.

I fly around – thistletop is like a giant skull. I don’t see anything from the sky that is moving around.

We open the horse thing – I cast Wild Empathy first – it is upset and hungry. Kim puts some water in a bucket for the horse. Shadow mist likes me now. I brought it some grass. I bring him some more.

This is an advanced horse. +2 on all roles. Ness deduces what happened was in this courtyard they were challenging each other to fight the horse but were losing so put it in the cage. But now it loves us. The sun has come.

We SLEEP. Bono, Ellwood + Nas sleep. Then we get woken up by something

the couch
Wet Willie + new Lizard friend

A bunch of goblins heard us so we can hear them coming to investigate.

We put the girls in the room and prepare for battle. I hear the sounds of goblins approaching. They turn the corner we start to kill them!

Nastunye sees ripnugget and Lyrie – she is the one who disappeared in the ceiling and then went to get goblin friends.

Orik got hit with a bottle, and is covered in oil that smells like kerosene. Lyrie shouts, “I know what you did Orik, if you give up now you’ll live!” Ness tells Lyrie we killed Tsuto and she breaks into multiple bits so she will be harder to hit.

Tsuto loved Nualia. Lyrie loved Tsuto. But who does Orik love???

Lyrie casts a fire spell, and Orik gets on fire because he’s holding an oily pillowcase. Logan does human Trebuchet and throws the flaming pillowcase into the middle of the room, and hits two of the double images. There are four left. Ellwood gets one. We kill all the images!

Lyrie engulfs the room in flame and the remaining goblins die. Bono heals everyone for +11HP! Orik tries to hit Lyrie with his bastard sword, but when it hits her, she makes it shatter into pieces. Logan grapples Lyrie and kisses her.

Ripnugget runs away on his lizard, Nastunye runs after him.

Melon sticks his tongue in Lyrie’s ear and squeezes her tight. He blows her bangs out of her eyes in a surprisingly caring way.

Ellwood cuts out Lyrie’s guts and her entrails pour all over Melon who holds her hands while she dies.

Nastunye leaps on the back of the lizard and whispers “whose laughing now”? into his ear. Ripnugget slices her with his sword. Ness critical fumbles and hits Nastunye for -5.

One of the goblins gets with with an arrow from the hallway and dies. Bono goes to the stairs and sees Ameiko, and some soldiers.

Melon full minotaur bull rushes the lizard and headbutts him. Ripnugget falls off. Nastunye is RIDING the lizard whose name is Stickfoot. NESS FINALLY KILLS RIPNUGGET.

Ameiko and the reinforcements have arrived.

We took out all the mini bosses, saved the girls.

save the girls!
we did, we saved them.

We have prisoner Oric, he has agreed to lead us to Thistletop in exchange for money.

Melon has taken a strong shine to Oric. Oric displayed his allegiance to our group by helping us through many obstacles.

Gogmurth was upset that his chief ripnugget showed allegiance to this woman

Newallia is the big bad, Suto was her right hand man and lover – he was brother of Amako.

We made a promise to Gogmurth that we would not hurt any goblins that may be hard

prologue is over.

Trophy room – no floor. animal heads on wall. As far as Oric knows there should be goblins, but he doesn’t see them.

We hear celebration noises in the distance.

Oric has been downstairs but it was horrifying and he does not want to go down again. We want to go up the tower to see if we can tell what is going on in the courtyard. Jill doesn’t find any traps. Jill pushes the door open. It creaks. She peeks over the edge and sees two goblins asleep. They seem more or less unconscious, full bellies. Nas grabs their weapons. In the courtyard we see three goblins cheering and a horse running enraged in a circle – the horse tramples the goblin to death – they are battling the horse for fun basically.

Logan opens a closet. There are pickles. Logan covers himself in pickle slime.

Oric goes in to talk to goblins. Ripnugget is there riding a lizard. There are commandos. RN is laughing and says “Oric it was a huge success! Come in!” There is food and stuff that was stolen from down and also a fresh corpse of a woman. Oric takes the beer and is friendly – “cheers”. Oric says he wants to go take a shit and rolls a 17 so the goblins believe him.

Jill is checking for traps to go up the other tower. Jill cracks open the top and sees two goblins intensely playing cards. Jill closes the door.

We go downstairs. There are dog pelt rugs. Jon picks one up. He is drunk and likes the hair so he is petting it. We hear muffled crying in the door to the west. Nas is going to Nawallias room and is listening at the door.

Oric goes to his room and there are sheets. He finds two cure light wounds potions. Jill pushes the door open to N’s room. There are silk sheets. There is candle that might be magic. We look at the papers on the desk. They are scribbled but we can’t read them. Ness recognizes it as old thassilonian. These ruins are similar to the other dungeon. We take the papers. Oric takes the ever burning candle. Ness and Nass don’t find treasure, but part of the silk seems to be burnt.

AAANNNNDDD they hear a bugbear that comes in. Melon and Bono are in the hallway. Bruthasmis is the thing. Logan hits him in the groin and gives him fatigue. We kill him.

Nas loots. We heal Melon. Nas finds four platnum, heavy flael. masterwork composite longbow. potion of cure moderate wounds. in quiver 20 arrows but 4 look strange – they have goblin scibblings ruins. +1 elf bane.

Ness gets the masterwork composite longbow, Nas takes composite shortbow. We leave body in the prison and save the kids who are in the prison.

akika says “they took my sister into the other room”

We go to get’em.

We see two baddies at the far end and a couple of goblins and two dead goblins. There is gore

Stone fonts containing frothy dark water. pillars. shallow stairs with platform. glowing red smoke. relief of monsters eating humans. ashes and bones. very pregnant woman with talons three eyed jackel head. blades glow.

lyrie. 1 point of damage. she disappears. We sense invisible lady above us.

We kill a goblin, two Yeth appear. Nas does damage. Melon grabs the goblin who was trying to get away.

We hear a rumbling coming from upstairs. thumping. or like a large group of things.

I untie the girl. She was unharmed, she has accross her belly a painted on ruin and has goblin testicles all around.

Oric says “there should be guards here”
Harpy wings on the wall
One of the daggers has a pearl handle (100 gp)

We Run Across the Bridge of Fire.
Bono Help.

We look outside of the building.

An injured young man falls in to the ground and says “they are headed toward the bridge” Bono thinks he is cute and is tousling his hair. Ellwood stabilizes him and we leave Ameiko to care for his wounds.

We see figures running down towards the bridge.

Bono wants tousle. Melon says no.

Goblins are running in pairs and each one is carrying what appears to be a body.

Man in armor (boss fight?) is setting bridge on fire.

Nastunye runs up

Bono protect friend! Bono no hit.

We kill one goblin, the other one drops his part of the body to go after Nast. Ness runs up and recognizes her mentor, Shalelu Andosana, as the “body”, and drags her back to the other side of the bridge.

Boss fight man moves back, brings up his shield and shoots at Nast.

We remember that there is a tribe of goblins that is semi-aquatic. We don’t know if these are that.

Nastunye natural 20’s the goblin and loots 5 gold (ignores the fire).

Bono helping – fireman carries Shalelu back to safety.

Shalelu says while ranging, she came upon the caravan with the mayor in it. She camped with them (why would they camp so close to town???), and they got ambushed during the night.

We will get experience soon!

goblins and villigers got away and town is on fire
but we did save Shalelu (ness’s metor) we saved and we captured Orik

The roof is on fire - wait, not anymore!

Nast, Melon and Bono are a bit under suspicion, but Ameiko explains and they are told to stay out of trouble for a week.

Nastunye gambles and gets 17 gold
Bono makes a helmet for the sheriff and buys us back a lot of good faith
I forget what Melon did – tried to fix his jaw or licked things or something
I trained bubbles/socrates/tbd
Ness goes to the monastary, to see if she can research what is happening with Melon. She fails, but decides to go back to the tunnels under the glassworks to see if she can read the runes that we saw before.

Ness runs into Melon at the glassworks. Melon intimidates the guards into letting us in.
we got back together and went down in the glassworks

The last room we had yet to explore is perfectly speherical.
Ness can’t quite read the runes, but it looks like it has something to do with the god, Lamashtu.
There’s a floating orb and all kinds of weird stuff floating in space – a dead bird surrounded by maggots, wine, a wand, a scroll, a book, and pulsing electrical magic.
red metal walls with floating stuff – halo of maggots, dead raven, scroll, book,
The lightning happens around the metal runes in a pattern.
Melon gets wine and wand. Nastunye gets book.
Logan tastes the wall. Bono keeps hurting himself on the wall. Elwood throws him a rope. Ness mage hands the scroll. Melon splatters the bird and it oozes. He throws up. Maggots hit Nastunyes eye. It is gross.

We walked through ancient tunnel.
There was statue that had good weapon that Kim has. The statue holds a book with a 7-pointed star.
Another room with water that was evil
Temple chamber where demon originally was
Storage rooms
anti-gravity room
zombie pit room.

as we re-explore we notice scratch marks on the walls – made with claws and not tools, something larger than a mountain lion.
The marks are written in Thassilonian, or an older version of the language that it evolved from.

Ness is offended that that Melon took the wine. We ask Ameiko who we should talk to about reading some of the arcana stuff – She says we should talk to Chask Haladan – owner of The Curious Goblin bookstore.

The Sheriff has heard of pirates rum-runners using tunnels. They didn’t know before that these specific rooms were there, or that the tunnels ran so deep.

We go to sleep. Some folks smell smoke and wake up. goblins.

Bono and Ness wake up first. Ness leaves her room with only her silver dagger. She casts ghost sounds to sound like a pack of dogs to distract the goblins, but also to wake everyone up. We kill a goblin, but some run off. We hear screaming upstairs.

Bono and Ness run upstairs to find Ameiko being attacked by goblins. Bono gets knocked unconscious. Ness casts Summon Monster to have a dog appear and distract the goblins. She gives Bono a cure light wounds potion, and he wakes up.

The third floor is filling with smoke, and the goblins run away. Ameiko is unconscious, but Bono is able to heal her. Bono brings Ameiko down to the first floor. Ness goes to the second floor.

Ness grabs half of her gear (armor, shortbow, ranseur, the wine she CALLED DIBS on), and throws the other half out of the window. She runs to Nastunye’s room and throws all of her stuff out of the window. Nastunye runs up to join her, and the fire downstairs gets put out.

I didn’t keep close track, but we had summoned dogs, spiritual weapons, barrels putting out fire, NO PANSIES, climbing out windows, we totally saved amakos life, etc. Put out the fire.

we’ll handle experience later :)

In which we all do different things

Logan went up to the glasswork. He is going to hide. Garrison is relatively unguarded.
We are in a potion shop, with dismembered mountain lion and screaming potion seller, commotion outside – not directed towards us.

We grab 10 cure light wounds. I have four, Ness and Nastunye have 3 each.

Logan goes to the jail and throws a rock to distract one guard and puts the other in a sleeping hold and hides him behind a chair. He grabs a key and unlocks Bono.

Ness drinks some potions. Some guys come to the door but Jill rolls a 4 on disguise so they are suspicious of her. She diplomacies them for +15 and they leave. Nas says “Thank you so much officer”. Jill picks the lock of the safe and we find a large ledger, 3 gold potions, and coins worth $150. Which is a lot of gold.

Nast stays with the guy. Ness comes with Elwood. Ness checks the gold potions and finds that they are very unique. There is a guard so we try to swim, but I roll a 1. We almost drown but then make it across. Ness drinks the wine.

“I’m going to remove your gag, because I don’t think we need it anymore – do we Nisk?” Nisk is terrified. (intimidate) Nast grabs his face and acts like she is going to pour it down his throat and watch his reaction. He screams bloody murder. She tells him that she will give his potions back if he doesn’t tell.

Melon and Bono go back to the glassworks. Melon shares his heart that the darkness is building in him. Bono heals some Melon damage. Melon says “thanks cleric bro”. There is a knock at the door. Melon suggests going to the basement, but Bono is hesitant. Melon says we’ll just stay halfway – it’s Amako the woman we saved. She is holding a lantern. Bono explains everything to Amako. She agrees to hide you out in the tavern. They are now in the rusty dragon inn.

Elwood is meditating but is interrupted by Ness drunk burping. Nast takes the ledger and all his money and stuff. Nast boops him on the nose. She goes to glassworks. Ness is randomly shooting arrows drunkenly at nothing.

Melon tries to bite Bono because he is slowly losing control. He goes downstairs to get a drink, but there are people so he goes back up. Bono left the room.

Nast is alone in the glassworks and the demon comes to try to kill her. Nast is terrified and runs down the street. Demon lady is trying to kill her. She takes 3 damage. Two guards appear. Logan says “would you say she came out of the quasit?” Get it? She came out of the glassworks, she’s a quasit witch, etc etc. HA HA HA..

Nastunye and some guards are trying to kill it. Lots of guards are getting eaten. Jill hits it a few times.

Melon feels like it is trying to command him, but he is able to resist it with his will. Melon throws dirt in her eyes. He rolls a 21 but nothing happens because he just was throwing dirt. This allows Nastunye to sneak behind her and attack with rage which does awesome damage. Melon does a flying elbow drop and stuns her. Nastunye kills her.

Melon runs over and crouches over her repeatedly. I think he is marking his territory, not sure. He is feeling lighter and more free now that she is dead. Nastunye right-clicks to loot.

Demon is wearing a tiara. Melon equips it. +1 cold iron returning dagger. Symbol of a raven carved out of obsidian. The gown is worth roughly 25 gold, tiara is worth 50 and 10 for the unholy symbol/raven thing.

Melon’s tiara is +1 diplomacy. The sheriff thanks us. We have redeemed ourselves by killing the demon with guys watching. The town likes us again. Sheriff sets up guards around the glassworks. We have free room and board at the red dragon.

Ness is trashed and randomly casting ghost sounds and shooting randomly. She shoots a pig. And falls asleep on the pig. I am meditating for monkey.

+800 xp for Nastunye and Melon
For escaping or whatever +300 to everyone.

To Do!
  1. Find Bono
  2. Heal Logan
  3. Get me a new pet

  6. Kill Bugbear – Bruthazmus (bro)
  7. Malfesh dude – figure out who he is and how they summon him
  8. Get the people in town to not hate us
Nisky gets Frisky and we lose Kitty
RIP Kitty

We slept well.
Kitty’s ears are turning into leather.
Melon chews on Kitty’s ear. It is tough and needs salt.
We put a blanket over Melon’s head.
Chauncey gets away and eats fruit.
Bono gets Chauncey.
Guards surround us – Bono asks for help but they are not buying it.
Logan intimidates them and they ALL RUN AWAY.

We got to the temple and Nastunye calls out for Absilar Zantus (the local priest). He helped us before. He tells us to bring Chauncy outside.
He has Melon sit down. Melon spits on people and scares them away.
He says it’s old dark magic and he needs to send to Magmar (3 days away) for help.
He has Melon drink holy water who throws up on Zantus – it burns his robes. Melon hugs him. He puts his holy symbol and it hurts Melon. Zantus runs.

Kitty has tentacles on her chin and bat wings for ears. She is turning into a vargoyle.
Chauncey elbows Bono in the head and goes running off – Bono is chasing him.
Nastunye is hitting on the potions guy.
Ness and Melon and Elwood are headed to Ness’s old place, Elwood is carrying kitty.
Rissa’s place – tavern that we walk by. We walk by lumberworks too and somebody notices, but we keep walking. We go back to where Ness worked.

Nastunye hits on the potion guy. She asks for the strongest potion you have. They discuss this really cool potion. He hits on her. She scores the potion for no money WE DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IN THERE BUT SHE HAD TO ROLL DIPLOMACY. She heads back to the temple.

Bono is still chasing Chauncey – the guard guy Balor Hemlock is gathering guards and stuff. Chauncey is wrestling with a dog. Chauncey bites the dog. All the guards look. They attack Chauncey. Bono approaches Balor and thanks him for killing Chauncey and fills him in on the deal and they go into the garrison and Balor politely puts him in jail.

Nastunye goes back to the temple – Balor has sent people to the temple and Nastunye is listening to their plans. She thinks we’re inside. She waits cause she doesn’t want to lose the surprise. She sees we aren’t in the temple so goes to find us in the bar and tells us about the potion, gives it to Logan. We hold him down and force him to drink it. Logan doesn’t get cured but he levitates. Nastunye is mad. Ness is laughing.

Logan can levitate other stuff. He levitates himself and us and we’re floating in the middle of nothing cause we can’t actually go forward. Ness pulls us back into the window. Melon goes to the ground instead and runs towards the river with guards running after him.

Nas + Nes + Elwood run to the potion store. Melon is getting shot at with arrows and floating towards the ocean. We get to the potion store and Nastunye slams him on the ground “You sold me a bum potion bitch!” Ness throws the cat at him and fails. Elwood bullrushes him and we tie him up and Nastunye yells at him. “From now on I get anything I want.” He is scared.
Nisk Tenor is the guys name.

We pour remove curse on Kitty. Wings are flapping. “Listen Nisk, I don’t want to have to slap you again.” Kittys head pops off and is a demon thing. We kill it, it dies on the poor man. I am crying because of Kitty.

We successfully returned to town and pissed them off. Bono had lunch. Logan floated to the other side of the shore into the wealthy area and is on the beach.

200 xp for gargoyle. 300 for other stuff. +100 for Melon for levitation. For attempting to help Bono gets +100. For seduction Nastunye gets +100.

Story Recap
This is the same info I put on the forum

So far…

1. During a celebration of the rebuilding of the church that had previously been destroyed by fire, the town was invaded by goblins. The invasion turned out to be orchestrated by a human man “longshanks” in an effort to distract the town while the priest’s body was stolen from its resting place.
2. The priest had a daughter, Nualia, who was never heard from again after the church fire. She was known to be beautiful but troubled and reclusive. Townfolk described her as divine. She was adopted by the priest after being orphaned at a young age. There are rumors she ran off with a boy from another town.
3. The fire itself is suspicious, and it happened after this serial killer guy who made beautiful wood carvings was caught carving out peoples’ eyes as offerings to his bird demon god.
4. Amako Kaijitsu goes missing after a letter from her brother, Tsuto, asks her to meet him at the glass factory to get revenge on their father, Lonjiku.
5. Lonjicu is found dead at the factory with molten glass poured over him and surrounded by dismembered factory employees. The place is crawling with goblins, but it does not look like the goblins are the ones who dismembered the bodies or killed Lonjicu.
6. Amako is found half alive bound and gagged in a closet.
7. We fight the Longshanks goblin leader and kill him. We find a note on his body that reveals Tsuto is longshanks, and he is responsible for the goblin raid on the town, and that he is the local boy who Nualia ran off with years ago. She is trying to transform herself into some kind of demon. Tsuto and Nualia took the priest’s body as part of this plot.
8. While exploring the glass factory, we find a sanctum with ritualistic decor and skulls, an altar, and mysterious dirty water.
9. A quasit witch, Eryllium, appears and summons two demons to fight us. She escapes badly injured. She can fly.
10. Exploring further, we come across Korovus, a large goblin, and a bunch of really ancient zombie-like beings being kept in pits. We kill him and determine him to be from the Seventooth tribe.
