Adventures in Moseen

Session 2
Temple of Rodryn

Sunday March 6, 2011
Players Present: Ben, Gina, Dave, Allen, Brad

Here are some brief notes on the session.

Determined to rid the abandoned Temple of Rodryn of the evil held within, the party went in search of Brother Ermark, the only only survivor of the catastrophe. Plying him with nut kringle and fresh bread, they caught the hermit on a rather lucid day. He was able to provide some additional information about the temple, including warning them of the crypt guardian.

Armed with this information the adventurers picked up some extra supplies and entered the temple. They stumbled across a couple skeletons on the ground level and quickly finished them off. From there, they entered the lower level. After a nearly deadly battle with the ghouls, the party chose to regroup and collect some additional fire power from the Church of Cyrilath, in the form of holy water and healing spells. Eventually, all of the undead fell to the power of the party, aided by the Sword of Rodryn, which was discovered by Ulna, the dwarf. In addition to the magical sword, they found four candles with magical properties. They returned to the Church of Cyrilath and collected their reward.

Based on the information gathered from their trip to the crypts and Brother Ermark, it is believed that the incident in the temple was caused by the Tome of Grimic, a cursed magical item which transforms the living to undead when it is destroyed. How the tome came into to hands of the temple over 30 years ago is still unknown.

Session 1
Arrival in Moseen

Sunday March 6, 2011
Players Present: Curt, Dave, Allen, Brad

Here are some brief notes on the session.

At the first sign of Spring, the party left their homeland of Iraldon with the intention of gaining great fortunes in the Stonehell Dungeon to the north. After a two-week journey, the party arrived in Moseen, a small, and relatively young human settlement. Entering the village, they questioned the guardsmen at the gate about places to stay and possible employment opportunities around town. After securing housing at the tavern, they set out in search of the baker, who was rumored to be poisoning the locals with his baked goods. Sometimes rumors turn out to be false, though, and the party ended up enjoying some snack bread and kringle in the end.

The local bowyer/fletcher was known to be an adventurer earlier in his life. He say down with the party, gave them a little background on Stonehell, and informed them of some curious behavior he had witnessed in town. It seems that one of the respected members of the community was seen behaving strangely at the weekly festival at the old tree in the center of town. The bowyer suspects he might up to no good, but doesn’t have any proof.

The party also learned a little about the old temple of Rodryn in town. Some horrible event happened in the past and it has been sealed since. The clergy of the church of Cyrilath are looking for some folks to enter the old temple and clear it out. Only one member of the clergy from Rodryn’s temple is still living, and he is quite insane, living as a hermit in a cave in the hill across the river.

The leader of the town guard has requested some assistance with a goblin encampment to the north. He offered the adventurers gold for each goblin head, and whatever they could loot, for eradicating the troop. Since there adventurers were looking to swing some swords and make a few bucks in the process, they set our for the encampment early the next morning. Following instructions from the leader of the guard, they tracked down the goblins and attacked. Amongst the supplies, the party found a significant cache of gold, a magic sword and shield and a rope of climbing. All party members survived and returned to town to collect their earnings.
