I went to the enclave today to investigate what happened. Crowe was nice enough to come and help get a feel for the situation. He’s pretty insightful, I like him. It is fucking amazing when that guy uses the restroom. I guess being an angel has its perks. In our investigation we found that some odd weapons were used. Crow pointed out how the markings were definitely not consistent with how paladins of the sun would fight. Upon further investigation I found out something terrible…
The marking in the floor and walls were consistent with the fighting style of one man…
That has to be a mistake, why would he be helping Frena? Why would he participate in the slaying of my entire enclave? Something doesn’t add up.
After all the investigation Crowe pointed out that its possible that they were framed. Quinn agrees. According to Quinn a paladin by the name of Emesha was Frena’s second in command and has gone missing since the attack. Quinn says she trusts Emesha with her life but, someone that high in the paladin order could know valuable information about what happened. I’ll have to keep aware of any information about her whereabouts as well.
We finally started to head out for Valenar and the tomb of the sleeper today as well. An agent of Juliette was sent to us and apparently Juliette wants us to get the Hand of Vecna for her. Get in line Juliette, you’re not the only one after it.
We were given a few groups of soldiers for our endeavor, our number sits around 80. That should be beefy enough to not be attacked by all those roaming warbands in Valenar.
On our trip we encountered a religious caravan holding the remains of Raven Fallencrest, some crazy ass dude who killed some crazy ass god, suposedly Tiamat, in this crazy ass fight.
Shit, hes got my respect.
They were on their way to bury his remains which they had been harboring for 2 years…yea…weird.
In the middle of our group talking to their leader we were attacked from the warwood by some band of thieves. In the confusion our troops and us got separated but, we were able to demolish the bandits with minimal casualties. Their true motives were not apparent until the end though when some gryphon showed up out of no where and swiped the remains of Raven. Brin and Crowe tried their best to stop him but, he was just too fast.
On the gyphon’s way out Brin did catch a glimpse of something crazy though. The rider of the gryphon was none other than the leader of her tribe.
The leader of the religious caravan let us know that Raven must be recovered because he has “The Horn.” The way I understood it was that the horn is a remnant of the fight with Tiamat, who Raven demolished, and is a powerful relic. I can’t be sure though, the chick was flipping out.
We were able to follow the tracks left by the bandits through the warwood. On the way we lost over 20% of our troops to the undead in the forest. It wold have been more if it wasn’t for Selene treating everyone’s wounds. The undead were relentless.
We finally got to the end of the tracks and encountered a huge group of the bandits. Through some tricky maneuvering and superior skills we were able to overpower them. The tomb we were looking for also happened to be in the area. Coincidence? Probably not.
We were able to get into the tomb with the dream team and are about to start sweeping through it. We will probably encounter resistance. They will be cleansed of course.
And by cleanse I mean smitten with righteous and furious vengeance. Hell yes, I love being a paladin.
