Redder Hander of Doomer (2nd RHOD Campaign)

Fraydo Log -- The calm before the storm

Dear Log,

I’ve just escaped from hell.

The stupid prince led us to the wrong entrance. The team spent hours in hell going deeper and deeper. Getting roughed up by ghosts and such. We eventually found a portal out. Nico found a mech which he piloted flawlessly. He fought an adversary of sorts.

Quickly after we defeated Nico’s friend we were confronted by Bahamut. Well, a representation of Bahamut. And we saw Tiamat flee. Bahamut suggested that we have some sort of connection to Tiamat; or Tiamat is within us. His leaps were sealed from explaining how. He said he would explain it to us if he killed us and we talked in his own plane. He really really wanted to kill us so that he could break this connection to Tiamat. We refused and battled Bahamut, we killed the dragon that represented him.

Dear Log,

I had my first fight with Abelia today. I don’t get why she is so irritated with me. I don’t know how to be a father. The only fathering I’ve seen is by my own father. She reminds me of myself. I hated my father and I never knew why.

I don’t think hating one’s own kin is reason enough to kill him. Which is why I regret killing him, but I will revive him. He will be revived into a vampire which, from what I hear, is a curse. Don’t get me wrong, I still hate him. Him being alive and cursed will clear my regrets and satisfy my hatred at the same time.

Tomorrow I will begin the ritual. Nico has agreed to help me. He’s a bit too cautious, I will say. He wants to setup a LOT of safety measures before we start. As long as he’s helping, I don’t mind. Wish me luck, Log.

Fraydo Log -- Beginnings of a War

Dear Log,

I have a child.

She is the little girl we encountered a while back while still with the Eladrin. They beat her up and banished her to Brindol. She was attacking the boat we used to take down the defense grid. She was depressed. The Eladrin were looking for who stole the body of my imaginary ‘employer’ and quickly assumed she desecrated and rid off the body. I never knew the Eladrin were so set-back with their cultural mentality that they won’t be skeptical of a girl doing such a thing.

It was my fault. If I hadn’t made up the story about the employer, the backwards Eladrin wouldn’t religiously look for his body and encounter the depressed Abelia.

Yes, her name’s Abelia. It’s a nice name. I took it upon myself to adopt her until she finds her mother. It’s the least I could do for her. I’ve never had a child before. Parenting to me is a lot of disapproval, scolding and caning. I will not become my father.. At least I won’t try to. History could repeat itself.

We visited an old lady that looked like the fortune teller I met before arriving at Brindol. I found out she was the fortune teller’s great granddaughter. Finding ghosts of her grandmother is not uncommon in her bloodline. Strange. She did give us more information on the incomplete Tarot deck that we have.

She also revealed to me that Jasper Hobs is not in town. Peculiar, it is, to leave town right before a predicted attack. Did he jump the boat? Regardless, this is going to setback Necral and I in assassinating him.

We set up for the attack on Brindol. Baron proved worthy at tactical defense. One important thing of note is Baron’s plan to hire a thousand (unsure about the number, Log) citizens to guard the tunnels. Once we leave Brindol, Baron would ask an already placed Druid Circle to sacrifice them to aid our war.

I didn’t have a problem with this. I actually do have a problem with me not having a problem with this. Lately I haven’t thought too much about the consequences and the morality of what I’m about to do: Reviving my father and turning him into a vampire; Assassinating Jasper Hobs; And letting Baron sacrifice a thousand men. The ends justify the means I guess.

I forgot to mention that I found out the ritual revives people into vampires. Is that a curse? Does my father want this? I still hate the man and I still feel guilty for killing him. So reviving him will eliminate the guilt and some hate will channel by giving him a curse. Maybe I have a broken moral balance.

Dear Log,

Necral wanted to destroy the Pope before he destroyed the Eladrin. We destroyed the Pope. That was exhilarating.

Nico - Found my box

I have been looking everywhere for my twitter-box. Finally found it on the Scimitar of all places! It seems someone was tinkering with it, because now I swear I can see images in the mirror! They are difficult to make out, but I am fascinated with this development. I have considered asking Petruzzo what he thinks of this trinket, but I must caution myself with my enthusiasm in approaching him. It is highly likely that he may betray us in the future, especially given the ignoble impression we gave him, but I find it hard to believe a fellow man of magical science could truly support such madness as the Horde and the Doge seem intent on unleashing upon the world. Also, his clothes are much nicer than mine and he may be my ticket back into the good graces of modern society as a whole. Aventius, I miss the food.

Hopefully our rough encounter with the spell-turrets of his invention have not shaken him too badly. Now that we have landed in Brindol, I plan to hit the local alchemy guild’s and libraries to catch up on my studies a bit before the hoard lays siege to the town. Our team’s new addition is rather the creepy fellow but seems to have a genuine interest in keeping us alive. Good enough for me.

With any luck I may be able to devise a way to counter the Hoard’s spell turrets. Perhaps our family’s research into lightning weapons may be useful yet…

Qusai wanted more adventure logs. If you make one, I’ll reward you in-game.

Tom isn’t allowed. :P

Fraydo Log -- Brindol

Dear Log,

It’s December 23rd and we’re finally done with the Lich. She said she’ll retreat her troops if we give her the phylactery. We gave it to her and she gave us a Wyrmlord. Fingers crossed, I hope she retreats her troops.

After leaving the Lich we met with Persephone. She abruptly changed paths to find an airship she knew was in the area. I’m not complaining or anything, I would love my own airship. I am still cagey around her since I don’t know how to handle sporadic people.. er.. robot snakes.

We searched the ship and found the previous crew’s dead bodies. Meh, they make great engine fuel. I didn’t care too much.

We saw Adriene again. He waved at us from below. What an overconfident Goblin! I was really eager to pull a prank on him until I found out he had Arfur. We exchanged the Wyrmlord for Arfur(Arfur was still with the Horde far away).

When we arrived at Cuddlesworth Keep there were THREE ARFURS. We were confronted with a puzzle which we quickly solved. We, The War in Skyrim, are quick witted.

Oh GOD. Wyverns. Sorry Log, too tired to write.

Dear Log,

We arrived at Brindol. The War in Skyrim disbanded to do their own thing. I asked around at the local University about al-Qasim. The Professor said his ‘darker’ books are with Lady Fairfax. I met with Fairfax and she interrupted my asking for the books with an offer about Lea. She would rid me of Lea’s curse if I rid Jasper Hobs of his power. That is to—kill him. Necral was kind enough to help me with this for free. I don’t know why it’s for free but I hope it won’t stab me in the back—figuratively and literally.

Though of course I do hope that you’ll still support our FLGSs and buy the occasional item from them….
