For Now I’m Shifting My ‘Journal Entries’ Back To Blog Form, And Thus We’ve Had Two Or Three Sessions Since My Last Update On My Vlog, DORAGONS DOMAIN
Once within the rundown town within the Ganesboro Sands, several of us went to the local Tavern to partake in the local Camel Milk Ale…
I Did not, but it was good to sit with a couple Members of the Party, and watch them ‘not’ be in danger.
Meanwhile our Druid Arinar went to the local Herb Shop, and found out from the Shop Owner that they too had lost someone to the ‘mysterious’ flying creature, and suggested we talk to a Hunter at the end of the town, who was about to head out to Hunt the Beast.
We gathered everyone, but on the way Laenor, being in such a hurry, ran right through a sword juggling act, causing one of the jugglers to be impaled.
Arinar tried to remove the blade, and treat him, but it was too late.
Our Ganesmen Ranger Ashkan spoke to the locals, and he and Laenor decided that they would attend the funeral/ceremony which would take place a month from then.
The other Juggler knew that it was an accident, and held no ill well.
More and more Laenor’s brashness was putting himself and others in danger, but for now, we carried on to the Hunter.
The Hunter was a man named Grizz, who had apparently Won Pinnacle Hunt each of the previous two or three years, and so we met our competition.
But he seemed to be much more interested in hunting this Large Winged Beast.
And so we spoke to him, and he agreed to let us travel with him to battle the Beast.
Nekana our Female Barbarian decided she would not go, as she had grown weary of not pursuing our Original Quest, to aid Pinnacles Allies against a Gnoll Onslaught.
We were able to convince her to come, barely, but I knew we needed to continue on our original Quest soon, or she would indeed leave us.
Once we reached the Cave where the Beast lived, we moved in, and had a lethal battle…
The Beasts Wings were 50 Feet across, and looked to be part bird, part Dragon.
When we struck it, it bled a green gooey blood…
…there was something very unnatural about this Beast.
When the Beast Breathed Fire on the Paty, Nekana and I were too close, and were both struck down, knocking each of us unconscious, and dying.
The Beast tried to escape, but our Ranger took one last shot, which pierced the Beast’s head, and/or throat, and killed it.
Laenor fed Nekana a Healing Potion, raising her from near death…
…while Arinar raised me.
Dying, or near dying, has changed me.
We then entered a small entrance, where there was a Door with A Puzzle we had to figure out, which we did.
Then we had to cross some Trapped Tiles, which set off Arrows should we fail, but once again, we were able to decode the Trap.
In the room after that we found our missing Party Member, Iven, but he was in a sort of a cocoon, and had lost one of his arms.
We also found the missing Shop Owners son.
Nekana recogonized a necklace Iven was wearing, and said that it was hers, but won’t tell us anymore than that… Only that she thinks Iven must have stolen it from somewhere, but Iven says it’s the only thing he owns that supposedly was given to him from his Father.
And so dissension in the Ranks once more.
This road we travel is treacherous, and I find it doubtful that we shall all live to tell the tale.
In a Dream, a God by the name Theramus, a “God of Truth, and Compassion”, reached out to me and requested that I serve him soon.
I agreed in the dream, and began to feel as though more magic had filled me.
We returned to the run down town, soon we will set off to continue our quest of battling the Gnolls.
