Session Eighty Five (NBL) - I Wish I Could Fly

Klotonk subconsciously starts drawing circles. No one really understands why. It may be related to the Fire Giant Amulet.
Erdan was able to read about the Karibi. They no longer exist, they are descended from giants. One of the precursors of the karibi are these giants that had technological advancements. They’re symbol was a circular gear. Once Klotonk thinks about the gears and giants, he recalls meeting giants with the gear amulets.
We arrive to the area where the shadow thread area is completely bare. It looks like the area was cleared, then it was There are some MukMuk tracks. Follow tracks, Hear a rumble. Derek and Doki go to investigate. See a giant turtle carrying the town. They stop when the see Erdan.
We get on the turtle, the MokMoks take us to Dimitri the Miracle Worker.
At the middle of the tower, there is Viscera Tower. There is a 5 story tall spire tower. We are lead into a larger hall where there are several people discussing thing. Dimitri, Nym, and a medusa are there. No signs of Sierra.
They found and restored the giant turtle. The turtle is undead.
Klotonk immediately asks about the tower in the first moment of silence. Meanwhile Doki heads off to say hi to Sierra and asses her magical powers.
A guy by the name of Magus of Myth, he showed up and moved the tower to the turtle so they could easily defend it. There is a creature defending the tower so no one can literally enter the tower.
When Doki shows up, Sierra sees a closed for good sign in front of her business. After a while, Sierra starts reacting negatively to Doki. “You didn’t join the nasty flying man with the spinning eye, did you?” She asks cautiously.
“I am walking example of where adventures take you.” Doki replies
Sierra doesn’t believe Doki. She looks over at her. “I like you Doki, but you shouldn’t be like flying man.”
“I won’t be like flying man, but sometimes you have to choose something other than death” and she walks away.
Meanwhile Derek wants to learn how to make fire sausage. He goes to the main chef, and the chef challenges him.
Klotonk figures out that the Magus of Myth left to the north to check on his wife.
Xillali goes to visits, Old Wort Nose, she goes to help people who have been wounded by Drow.
Klotock and Dimitri find a giant magical sword. It starts to glow, grow, and elongate. A form of a woman appears. She is green, with feathers. “Neither of you are welcome here”. Dimitri and the Coatl go at it with words. They decide that they are going to duel the next day.
Before the night is out Erdan goes and gives her a green feather that we found beforehand. He gets a lot of XP. The Coatl thanks Erdan. We have dinner with the higher political figures. They tell us how they had to be on the move because it was no longer safe to live in the village.
Dimitri goes back the next morning to challenge her. She has cleared out an area to fight. Says that they can only fight as equals and dispels magic.
Dimitri turns into a dragon. We see Tiamat tattoos all over his body. Dimitri shoots thunder savagely, releasing his wings, then he falls back down, into a dragonborn once again. He’s dismayed, naked, and broken.

LOOT
6 100g Diamonds for spells (5 Erdan, 1 Doki)

Session Eighty Four (NBL) - Unfinished Business

At the stomp when a Gnome joins us.
Xillali notices something peaking on them. Looks over and only sees an eye staring at them.
Dimitri takes first shift.
Rustling in the leaves, Something flew over us, everything is completely dark and then everything goes white again. See for of MASSIVE Dragon Flying towards the left. Color Unknown. It was headed towards the lightning caves.

They way it was flying, it looked it had a rider. It was a black dragon based on the silhouette.

Continue journey, we come upon the great lake In the middle of the lake is the fire dragon.
There are two black statues. Next to one of the statues is a cloud GIANT meditating. There are four Fire Elemental guards.
The Air Elemental is ready to attack.

This area is sacred to the fire giants, we’re making purification rituals.
To pass, you must make an appropriate offering. Like incense and gold.
Derek offers them Sbasil (space basil), they grudgingly accept, we move onward.

Doki believes in herself and touches the door. THe door turns WHITE, then completely BLACK and splits in half. The door is broken.
There is something breathing heavily in the darkness.

There is a vast room/vault, inside we see a titan that is 3 or 4 times BIGGER than the storm giant upstairs. There are massive chains holding it down. It’s currently sleeping.

“I will wake when the horn is sounded” is engraved on walls. There is obviously a lot of power here to keep the titan in place.
ON the base of the wall, there is a basin/fountain with fresh water in it.
There are words in kabiri in the fresh water that appear when the water is touched.
“Guess what I contain”

Keep exploring, and gather plants. Collect fire plants and bushels of FeverFew
The mound itself, there is a metalic/rustic thing under it.
Large remainder of karaibi mech. Electronics are rustic, the frame held, but a lot of it is broken/damaged. Core pieces are long gone.

Immune to dispel magic, shatter, and fireball.

As they are defeated they sit at the table. On the table, written in vampire “Sit disciple and gain the mantle of the chaos knight.” There are three empty seats.

Doki sits, a spell enters Doki’s mind. She can mutter words for “knock”. She understand it opens the door.
Naora sits down, and she starts to feel itchy. She suddenly feels very hungry. Doki looks delicious.

Session Eighty Two (NBL) - Heart of the Primordial
Complete all the quests

(Naora is not a vampire, she just has a curse)

Doki casts knock on the door. Its opens.
Inside the room there is a giant beating pulsing mass. Inside that there seems to be a gem that;s burning brightly. It’s attached tot he floor by veins. There are two vampires hanging off the heart. Around it, there is a multitude of vampire bodies littered over the floor. The Pulsating Mass does not react to our entrance.

Dimitri hears a voice in his mind. “You’re addressing the wrong individual”

We seek the heart, he replies.

“Then you have found it”

Of what nature is your power?

“The remainder of the black heart of a fallen primordial. This is where I was placed. The elf has done nothing to impress me, tell me why I should give you any information.”

We tell it our mission, “I can come willingly. HOWEVER, you murdered one of my chaos priest, and destroyed my home. You owe me two souls in exchange. I suppose I could accept a trade. I would accept cards. Vecknite has one” he mentions Doki, she greedily grabs her card.
We come to a compromise, that doesn’t require giving up the cards.

We continue to explore, on the floor we see rib like structures. The entire room is covered in the rib like material. 5 ft from the center, there seems to be a skull. The Bone Naga wants the Unseli gone.

We learn that the Dwarf is the KING , his surname is also Zee. He came to the heart looking for power.

The heart leaves with us willingly, the vampires detach from it. A vampire says to give him a card, the other vampire will carry it. He puts the heart in a pouch.
The place stopped bleeding.

We then give unseli blood to the Naga, who in exchange gives us a rib. At any time we need to teleport to Orcus’ Black Tower we can with this Magical Word. It will take us straight to the citidal, bypassing all obstacles. The Naga also gives us 6 tokens, looks like 6 skulls.

We return the monk’s book. In return we get mystic rewards. We sign the book indicating that we are the very first to leave the monastery. Rest and Level UP!

We head back to Hestavar, deliver the heart to the inculaba, get super rewards.

PARTY AT HESTAVAR

We are invited to the Lattice Ceremony, there are a verity of famous people and gods. Arathis is there personally (she looks like Athena). Palor and Iuoun are also there. Erdan talks to her about libraries. He totally fan boys.
Naora talks to Arathis about Religion.
Squib and the rest of the ship guys are all there.

Arathis gives a big speech. All three gods get together and work on fixing stuff, finally they add the heart. There’s something on the ground with legs, completing the final creation.
Rainbow bridges are all complete, everything grows back together. The four legged creature stands up, held by chains. There is a TERRASQUE. Aratheis asks’ Ioun to cast the final spell and the Terrasque is transported. People start appearing, as they recently died. The Terrasque was sent to Calandurin.

Session Eighty (NBL) - We’re De-Boned

There goes my back. GROSS

The deboned heroes (Doki, Xillali, and Derek) are lying helpless, prone on the floor.

Doki knows the following about Orcus. He is special among the demons. He carries a shard that is a key to another realm. He is the god oif the undead, that hates all life. He hates the Raven Queen for taking over the realm of death. He is rumored to have created the first vampires. General badass motherfuckler, who has recently been raging war against The Fey.

“Who are you that are not the flesh of my master” says the monster

Erdan engages. Orcus insinuaqtes then that he must then know the price. Erdan tries to sweet Orcus, lying through his teeth. Erdan offers to help Orcus kill the interlopers.

Orcus accepts his offer “Bring me the blood of the Unseelei and we’ll talk again.”

The Naga curls its tail and stares. I don’t think we’re getting our spines back. Nagas are immortal, the cannot be killed. If defeated, they just reform.

Doki tries to appease to the Naga, asking it to help. The Naga creepily whispers “No” in her ear and slithers away.

Demetri picks up the spineless heroes and tries to wrap them around his arm but he realizes he should actually cradle them like baby kittens as it is painful for them to bend their jelly bodies like that.

They move into the hallway. They hear the vampires whispering in their strange vampire language, saying “Come to us, comeee, you need help don’t you? Comeee”. Erdan goes towards them, much to the dismay of Dimitri.

Demetri dons living bone armor that deflects critical hits. It conforms to his body like a sexy dragon corset. The jelly heroes rest for an hour to regrow their spines while Naora stays watch .

Erdan walks in the vampire’s den, and sees their bodies have been absorbed intoi the flesh of the living wall. They have cloudy eyes. When Erdan walks into the room, they start to giggle and are quite mad. Erdan tries to make friends with them, even though they’re just babbling gibberish and rhymes.

“No flesh nor feather nor scales nor bones, but they have fingers and thumbs of their own.”

Erdan realizes it is a riddle and asks them the Sphinx’s riddle, in return. The vampires are amused and stumped by this riddle. He trades them a hint for a hint.

All three resting heroes regain their spine through magic, and through the ambient energy in their location. Xillali uses THE compass, its arrow points straight. The party goes to find Erdan. Doki counter charms when she’s around the corner. The vampires slither “More prey, We mean visitors.

Erdan makes a bad pun. Demetri arrogantly demands to know what the riddle is. He guesses the answer is “A Glove”. He solves the puzzle easily since he has been blessed by the Sphinx, and egotistically states “Master of Riddles!!”. Demetri’s demand for information about the Unseelei. The vampires creepily stall, and giggle to themselves. Eventually they state:

“The Unseelei were here, they left traps. They left guardians to look over sleeping fairies. But if I were you I would leave them alone, because those fairies are the bad kind.”

Doki asks “Why are the Fairies bad”. To which the vampires respond “What do you value the most?” implying that the Fairies steal memories.

The vampires ask her another riddle. “He who builds me doesn’t want me, he who buys me doesn’t need me, he who uses me doesn’t care.”

Doki answers: “A coffin.”, so she is now allowed to ask the vampires a question. She asks how she can grow back her arm. The vampires state that the only way is buying gaining a wish. To do so they must either go to the black tower guarded by Orcus or the white tower guarded by Nero.

The vampires stop giggling. The one in the center looks at Xillali, as if his sockets can still see her. He asks why she want to visit the heart, only death is there. Xillali give sass stating that it is unfair to be asked more questions and not be given answers. The vampires tell her “to make friends”. The room poops them out as the vampires giggle maniacally.

Xillali takes out her compass again, it points towards where the screaming came from. They walk in that direction. Doki’s counter charm has worn off. They see a little side area, there is a gollum like creature with bite marks all over his body, he has no name, hereafter referred to as NoName. He is held to the wall with living tendrils.

Doki tries to set fire to the tendrils but it only tightens the hold on NoName. NoName screams obscenities at them and begs to be set free. Doki tries to make friends. NoName responds with gibberish. Naora and Demetri hack two of the tendrils. Derek hacks the last of the tendrils and NoName scurries off.

NoName runs past the knight room and into a room with a dining room set. The party chases after him. Erdan runs into the knight room. A red knight starts to attack Erdan. It multiples so there are now three red knights chasing him. The blue and green knights are standing still in the back, watching. The party is now separated. Erdan starts running away towards NoName, with the knights hot on his heels. He cowers down behind the table and casts an illusion of a trap in the doorway.

Doki shakes her furry head in exasperation. Xillali is scared and can’t do anything. Erdan yells for the party to close the stone door once he is through. A red knight moves towards Demetri and attacks. A second knight moves towards Demetri and attacks. Demetri takes damage from both attacks., The third knight interacts with Erdan’s trap and realizes it’s an illusion. Erdan yells for his party to turn the dial. The doors close and the knights are trapped inside. NoName runs out into a cave, and Erdan chases after it. There is a giant bat on the ceiling. NoName covers itself in bat guano. Erdan casts a suggestion spell and tells NoName to follow him. NoName angrily complies.

The party meets up. Xillali asks NoName if she can heal him. NoName takes bat guano and rubs it on her face. She takes this as a “Yes” and heals NoName. They figure out that NoName is a goblin. Doki sings NoName a bawdy goblin song. Erdan tries to sweet talk NoName to draw more information. They find out the vampires have been biting NoName, but NoName has no memory of how he got to ShadowFell. NoName tells them that the knights have something to do with the heart, but he doesn’t know what.

There are a lot of vampires here because they are attracted to the heart, it is sentient. When they make their way to the heart, either 1 of 2 things happen. Either they are found worthy and become part of Shadowfell or they die instantly. Erdan lowers his suggestion spell, at which point NoName punches him and runs away.
