The following adventure log is from Orsik Stoutbelly
Those damn undead….. They got Rend….... We had to burn him ta make sure he dont rise up just like one o’ them…..
We go into that damn mausoleum and get bum-rushed by 4 o’ these bity undeads, a buncha skeles, another damn ghost, and some shooter skeles.
Of course, whats the first thing that Rend does? Does his typical “rush into battle” thing and doesnt wait for my stubby legs to follow. Rend gets surrounded by 2 o’ these bity undeads and they keep him stunned until the ghost can drain the life from him.
I was never able to get to him. Kana and Sam was behind me. Kana was hurtin all the undeads with all his spells. Sam was healin like a mad man. Unfortunately, it wasnt enough.
Rend fell. We saw the life fade from him. He died a good death, thats for sure.
Some how, the 3 of us made it out of there. I was able to make my body heal my wounds a bunch, a new trick i picked up, and Sam was healin the crap outta me. Kana was doin all the damage while I pretty much sat back and took all the damage and stayed stunned the rest of the time. It was the fight of our lives, thats for sure. Had I gone for too long, I fear that we all would have died. It was a miracle.
We search in the mausoleum afterward and find the artifact we are looking for. Kana and Sam look at the thing and find out its real bad stuff. It makes undead all around you. And it keeps them coming all the time.
The three of us decide that this artifact has got to go. It aint gonna be used for no prophecy even if it means that we die. I used Rend’s maul and cracked the evil thing in pieces.
We walk out of the mausoleum to find Fergus Greybeard running up to us. Now, this is just getting creepy. We told this guy we were leaving town, not that we were going to this graveyard. And we DID NOT take the road! We all decided to run through the swamp and all through the woods AS FAR AWAY FROM THE ROAD AS POSSIBLE!!! And SOMEHOW, this INNKEEPER finds us at this graveyard????? He is some evil sort of bastard!!!
Of course, Fergus says he needs that artifact. The three of us talk about it and determine that Fergus aint getting the artifact AND the next time we see him, we is gonna knock him dead. We tell Fergus to get lost and head back to town.
We head into town, do some light tradin and dealin, talk to some of the people we know, and find out….. nothing. No one knows who attacked us or anything. The three of us finally decide to head to that “safe house” that the little kid told us about.
We leave town and head to the safe house. Of course, it wasnt safe at all. But THIS TIME, we figured bad stuff would happen! Sam gets the idea to put a big rock by the door in case there is bad stuff in there. We do and as soon as I open that door, there is like 8 guys waiting to attack us. I slam the door shut, throw the rock against it, and Kana starts using his fire stuff and starts the barn on fire.
Damn thieves got some secret door to head back outside and they come around from the back side to get us. They had some shooter guys with crossbows but we used the barn to provide us with a little bit o’ cover. It worked real well. The one magic guy tried to come out in the open to use his spells on us. Didnt work out too well for him. Kana dropped his big fire ball thing on him and his weaker guys, and I charged his ass and knocked him right into Kanas fire ball thing.
We smack him dead while I take a bolt to the leg. Then it was us three against those two crossbow guys. I circle around to charge one o’ them. Somehow, they had HALBERDS hiding on them! The two of them pull them out and start makin an Orsik sandwich. Hurt pretty bad but we got the best healer out there. He had me better quicker then I could say “I needs your heals!!!” Kana with the spells, me with the hits, Sam with the heals, and the crossbow / halberd guys went down.
Before we head up to the farm house, we take a short rest…...
