Nights in Nocris

session 3
a.k.a we made a friend!

following their needed return to westwatch after having two companions take grevious injuries in the depths of stone hell, our party took advantage of the downtime to seek new party members (Kypris, a female rogue/bard) and restock their much needed healing supplies (our poor healer is consistantly broke). They once again delved in to the deep halls of the dungeon, discovering a well to another floor, defeating a giant gecko (known as Da Dragon), and defending themselves against a cleaning party of kobolds. They eventually captured and persuaded another cleaning crew to tell them a little about the area, and after learning there was a necromancer/evil cleric living in the catacombs close by they decided on an ambush, figuring the human and easier target then the two warring factions of orcs. their plan went off without a hitch (a rarity!) and they were able to end the night, secure in the knowledge they had gained a bit of coin and possibly some decent karma.

The End of the Trolls
aka mass extermination

After rescuing the human slaves from the hall of the Mountain Trolls, our intrepid party found themselves delving back into the dark halls with Pourri at their side, determined to avenge her family and rescue those left behind. She was able to give them vital resources, knowing how many of the beasts were left and what defenses they had. With only a little bit of arguing they began their renewed attack on the troll colony, destroying several troll maids and emerging victorious against the troll jarls brother, Onkel, a rare (and insane) three headed troll. Talin was ecstatic at the opportunity to pit the three heads against each other, and between her and Umbran were nearly successful.

The party was well equipped to deal with the remaining trolls, starting the battle with Pourri in front swinging Onkel’s three heads as the worlds nastiest bolo, followed by umbran webbing the thing to the Jarl’s face. They faced only a little internal opposition to killing the troll baby, quickly solved by Ceeri (professional baby killer) and Umbran (monster exterminator). They uncovered a treasure map to the trolls buried fortune, freed the rest of the gnome and human slaves, and retrieved the barely hidden treasure before absconding to the nearest town to begin pawning their goods.

They anticipated spending several months selling goods, allowing Osmos to write to his mentor to see if his dwarven clan would buy a piece of weaponry they recovered, the dread Beard Bane used by the trolls to slay dwarves. This lead to them stopping for a time in Ammar, the closest dwarven enclave in Nocris, to exchange a promissory note for the axe.

The head of the enclave, the young beauty Kartel Amberthane, made them welcome and began the process of exchanging the gold; Dworkina in the meantime made herself scarce to visit the nearest temple to begin the intricate dance of spy craft to better understand this strange state her job had dragged her to. She discovered a possible blackmail opportunity and decided to exploit it immediately, eventually enlisting Talin to help her gain entry to this shimming web of states craft. Lacking the desire to return to the cesspit of Stonehell immediately (and hoping to help poor Osmos win a kiss from his new lady love), the party turned their attentions to gaining invites to the Senator’s party, ending the night with a sartorial adventure…
