The Order of the Styx

Session 17: And The Tribe Is Broken

*Merisel attempts to pick the lock of the dungeon cell door (oh by the way Merisel, Erogoren, and his Dire Wolf pop out of the magic flask) and takes 30 points of lightning damage via her tools
-Melf returns and says the doors are trapped, in fact he made all the traps in the dungeon himself, so its just silly (and potentially life threatening) to try and pick them
-Melf informs Targus’s Tribe that the new king will meet with them tomorrow, today he must attend to his father’s funeral

*In the morning the Mysterious Figure in Black is in the cell with Targus’s Tribe, he is there to offer Blane a deal
-Merisel continues to try and pick the lock and takes 28 points of lighting damage and then an additional 23 points of lightning damage

-Blane and Braig notice that King Broderic is wearing a highly magical amulet bearing the Holy Symbol of Bane

-Then she steals 35 gold from various random people she encounters throughout the city (Thief!!!)

*Braig in the form of a raven goes to the docks to find Drak; Drak suspecting that such bird with a red eye is not a messenger from the Raven Queen grabs Braig in a choke hold and held the little bird druid above his head.
-Not enjoying be held like that, Braig turns into a bear so he is no longer hanging by his throat and forcing the dragonborn’s grip open a little. They quarrel briefly, it is hard to argue with a creature that can’t talk, scaring and frightening the simple townfolk.
-Bear Braig manages to break free and changes back into an elf so they can speak.
-Drak says he is going to the southern most city in the world, and that if Targus’s Tribe want to see him they can go there AFTER he finishes his business their ALONE

-He looks for Drak to get his aid in this endevour, the dock workers tell him that Drak has left the continent
-Corvick continues with his bounty hunting on his own quite successfully and claims a bounty of 500 Gold

*Blane spends the day gambling, performing, and enchanting magic items
-When it comes time to find some companionship for the evening the innkeeper informs him that Gregoria is the newest addition to the inns ladies of the evening (and has proven to be a very hard worker for the last 8 hours nonstop); Blane kindly asks for another companion (and suggests to the innkeeper that he may wish to provide his guests with a few healing potions for the next days itching)

-Braig and Gregoria turn into mice
-Erogoren goes up to his aunt and they have a polite conversation; she tells him that the 6 old friends he is looking for have been sent to Kadan to fetch her something that she greatly desires (she refuses though to tell him what it is)
-Amorous tells Erogoren that he and the rest of Targus’s Tribe are part of a prophecy currently unfolding
-THE PROPHECY (dun dun dun): Targus’s Tribe is destined to reunite to dethrone the false King Broderic (Dark and terrible servant of the God of War Bane) with the legendary (and previously unknown) Gem of Ages
-The Pixie opens a spinning vortex and tries to trick Drak into it by making him angry; when that fails the Pixie takes out a dradle that draws Drak into it when it touches him
-The Pixie flies through the portal and heads to the ship with most of Targus’s Tribe on it(Drak rages inside the dradle)

-Corvick smashes down the ice covered door leading down into the ships hold
-Braig runs into the hold of the ship after Amorous to discover Merisel standing next to a teleportation circle; Braig asks her if Amorous used the teleportation circle, Merisel says yes (Braig is not happy with Merisel for letting Amorous get away)
-Father Fellfire advices that their are better ways to go after Amorous, that they will need the element of surprise if they are to indeed finish her off once and for all

Have 43 XP for your trouble. You can have 4 XP because I feel that it should be close to 50.
