The Red Knot vs Dex Saves

The party continues deeper and deeper into the mountain (horizontally, anyway). With Andraste and Taman leading, the rest of the party follows behind (Loghren, Dawn, and Walton spot veins of obsidian, and Dawn won’t let Loghren attempt to take any :( ). Eventually Taman and Andraste come across a fork in the road. When the party regroups with them, they decide to head down the path leading left, toward sounds of water.

They emerge into a large cavern some time later; the floor here is covered in a slimy…. substance, and pools of water are scattered across the cavern floor its a pretty dank cave bruh. A huge river splits the cave in two, with only a rock bridge connecting the two.

Taman and Andraste are the first to venture into the cave the inappropriate joke potential in this session is insane just a heads up, and being the graceful rogue she is, Andraste almost face plants into one of the pools. Luckily, Taman catches her and saves her thanks taman!. Unfortunately, the water seems to be moving on its own, and a glob of…. something emerges.

Dawn catches up, and attempts to poke the evil glob with a spare dagger. When she does so, the dagger hilt fizzes and smokes, ruining her dagger. Meanwhile Andraste backs away from the first glob, and manages to backpedal… straight into another pool. Taman pulls her out again, saving her from a second glob creature of doom.

Walton shows up next, but slips and slams straight into Taman, because he’s graceful like that. Meanwhile the first ooze attacks Dawn, making her armor smoke RIP Dawn’s armor. Luckily, Andraste and Taman completely obliterate the ooze, saving Dawn. As Loghren moves deeper into the cavern, he slips and falls, sliding down into the river. As he holds onto the river bank, he realizes he’s lost Wyrm Sting

Andraste goes to help Loghren, and manages to pull him out of the river. While he’s recovering, Andraste retrieves Wyrm Sting for him. However, this time, when she grabs it she sense Wyrm Sting’s power and bloodlust, and doesn’t necessarily want to give Wyrm Sting back to Loghren… When she hands it back, she warns him not to lose it again, or else this is what happens when i try to be nice :(.

When Loghren goes to cross he bridge, Wyrm Sting whispers to him…s̶̢̰̞̦̙̒̔h̴̝͔̬̼̐̅̌͘ͅȩ̶̠̎͋̈́̏̈́͘ ̸̰̬̬̲̙̾̈́͑͜w̶̲͔̦͕̻̗̾̉̀͒ḁ̵̤̮̝̙̓̄ǹ̸͙̜̭̗̑̊̽͊t̵͉͙͔̫͑̀̅s̴͍̰̯͆ ̸̙̝̊͜m̷̤̘̻̙͑͆͂̕͝ḙ̸̞͐̊̿̎̇̀.̸̘̲̒̈̄.̷̟̗̤̆͂̋͝ͅ.̴͈̎́ ̴̝̽s̷̢̧͇͔̖̏̓͠͝ͅh̷̛̲̭̉̔e̵̘̗͍̦̻̓͜’̴̣̈́̐̕ṡ̴̗̝̰̥̝̹͘ ̵̱̜͖̣̥͗̿̚͝ͅn̷͍͚͕͍̥̗̏̍̾͆̔o̶̹̗̰̥͚̓̊͛ͅẗ̶̳͉̰̇͊ ̶͇̥̇͗w̸͓̻̺͆͋̇̊ö̷̱̯́r̵̩̬͎̦̳̠̂̿̕͘ť̶͉̠͚͊̔́̚h̶̼͚̎̐̎̏́͜ẏ̴̼̰̈͒̓͘… NEITHER OF WHICH IS TRUE, FYI

Anyway, he trips over the bridge and falls on his face again (but it’s okay, Andraste helps him out again). Hamas and Alex also trip, and fall, multiple times. They start to make their way across the bridge, Taman makes it first, and Loghren, Dawn, Alex, Hamas, and Walton are close behind (Andraste is all the way at the other end).

Loghren, once near the other end of the bridge, falls again, and completely slips off the bridge. He catches himself on the edge, but is slipping. As that’s happening, a orb of light descends from the ceiling, slamming into the bridge and hurting everyone, except Andraste :D Andraste runs across the bridge next, and pulls up Loghren it’s kinda like that one scene from the lion king, saving him once again.

In the distance, in the darkness, Taman sees a set of glowing eyes…

Happy One Year Anniversary <3

The party awakens the following morning to Walton, cooking the hell out of their stockpile of potatoes Walton is the team mom i’m telling ya. As the party sits to eat their breakfast, Taman confesses to Andraste as well as the rest of the party cuz they’re nosy that he’s had a strange dream, and that he believes that the spirits of the forest have granted him some strange power, as long as he swears to protect them meanwhile Andraste had the even stranger dream of Loghren teaching her how to shoot bows better.

Afterward, Alex decides to go for a nice swim in the pool, and notices that there seems to be a place where the water is draining. Everyone in turn begins to investigate the pool while Andraste keeps watch. Alex takes off all his armor, with help from Loghren, and wades into the pool, eventually swimming under the waterfall and emerging into a cavern on the other side. Taman tries to follow Alex first, and makes it only after nearly drowning.

Before Loghren goes to follow, Andraste offers to hold Alex’s armor and Wyrm Sting for him. It takes a bit of willpower, and effort, but Loghren is able to hand her Wyrm Sting. Dawn notices that something passes between them, and questions Andraste about it, who lies and says nothing is odd about the weapon. Dawn sees through her lie, and resolves to ask Loghren about it I’M SORRY I TRIED TO KEEP IT SECRET.

Loghren goes through the waterfall easily making taman totally jealous, and Andraste prepares to teleport herself, Dawn, Twobo, Walton, and Hamas over to the other side of the waterfall. Though she’s able to successfully teleport, she’s slightly off target, causing herself and everyone else she teleported to fall into the water.

Taman, Andraste, and Loghren continue on to the next room, following the current that runs through the cavern. They find a much larger pool, which Loghren dives into first. He’s able to find a tunnel that forks before he runs our of air. Andraste takes over, following the left tunnel, and almost running out of air, before finding the next cavern.

Alex dives in after her and makes it safely. Loghren, Hamas, and Walton make it over also, though Hamas might have gotten kicked in the face by a certain someone. When Dawn starts her swim, however, her sword belt gets stuck, and she gets forcibly pulled up by Andraste and Alex. Dawn, when safely in the cavern, realizes she lost Redemption in the water. Taman stores Twobo safely in the pouch of holding before starting his swim, and gets pulled along by the rope when Alex and Andraste pull Dawn up. He makes it safely, and Dawn resummons Redemption to her side.

Once everyone is safe, the party sets off, Loghren and Andraste taking point. They enter more tunnels, with stalactites and straw formations hanging from the ceiling. Wen Taman brushes up against one, it grabs him. Luckily, he’s freed by Walton. Another creature grabs Dawn, and when Loghren attempts to pull her free, they both get stuck, and yanked upward toward the ceiling. Loghren is able to free himself, but falls painfully to the floor. Andraste looses two arrows that the filament holding Dawn, cutting her free and making her fall on top of Wyrm Sting.

Another strange creature attempts to attack Andraste, but misses her. Alex, seeing it, summons his spiritual weapon and attacks it. Walton launches a fireball at the one who attacked Dawn, destroying it and a bit of the ceiling. As the party continues to assault the creatures, one attempts to escape, and barely manages it. The other is killed by Andraste.

Loghren and Andraste FINALLY TALK

Taman continues his relentless assault on the evil tree, loosing one of the red gemstones set into its bark. Andraste also looses arrows at it, but misses… a lot. Meanwhile, despite being frightened by the tree, Loghren is able to frighten the tree in return i find this whole situation very treeifying. Hamas also continues to attack the tree before finding an opening in its roots and disappearing into it. When Dawn trees to go after him, she only succeeds at bumping into Alex, who is also searching for an opening in the tree.

The tree attacks both Dawn and Alex next, and through Alex is able to dodge it easily, Dawn is grabbed by the tree and leafted into the air. The tree, with Dawn in its embrace, uses it’s roots to stand. It leafs it’s spot and heads toward Andraste. The tree, as it is moving, attempts to eat Dawn as it did before, but completely fails, as it usualeaf does. In the crevice where the tree once stood, there are several, unmoving bodies, a few of which look humanoid.

As it is moving toward her, Andraste tells the tree the best joke ever, of all time, and trees to cast Hideous Laughter on the monster. However, it doesn’t atreeciate her sense of humor, and is unaffected. The ridge Andraste and Dawn had climbed down earlier suddenly becomes covered in a wild tangle of thorns and spikes.

Alex attempts to hit the creature with Inflict Wounds, but misses. Luckily, Loghren, who definitely did not back away from the tree that is not a thing that happened, saves the day and throws two javelins at the tree, killing it finally. It drops Dawn and collapses, releafing a hand that is sticking out if it’s body. Loghren and Alex work to free the trapped person, and eventualtree they are able to have free the person, who turns out to tree Walton okay that pun was kinda a stretch. Alex and Dawn heal him; he wakes up, but is very weak.

Meanwhile, Taman and Andraste investigate the bodies the tree leafed behind, and discover that the bodies were men that were under Hamas’s command when they were attacked by the wyvern. When Hamas discovers his deleafed men this pun’s a stretch too but #SorryNotSorry he becomes enraged, and begins shouted for the dryads to show themselves.

The party debates about what to do next. Alex, Loghren, and Hamas argue for killing the dryads, while Andraste, Taman, and Dawn (who is still charmed) argue for talking to them and collecting a reward for saving them. Andraste, Taman, and Dawn leaf to try and talk to them, while the others watch Walton, who is a bit more alert now.

Walton is able to see the dryads because of his glasses, which Alex borrows and uses to point out the dryads’ locations to a vengeful Loghren, who succeeds in hitting one. Angered, the dryads petrify Loghren, then communicate to Dawn that the party must leaf… or suffer the consequences. Andraste, Dawn, and Taman carrying Loghren off and the party heads to the monastery okay no more bad tree puns from here on out I promise.

As they travel for the monastery, Loghren and Andraste finally have the chat they’ve been trying to have since Alton YES! FINALLY! I’VE WAITED SO LONG. Andraste asks Loghren about Wyrm Sting, and he tells her about its link to the dragons. He promises that if it becomes a danger, he’ll tell her immediately, and Andraste promises that she won’t tell the rest of the party; she’ll leave it up to Loghren to tell the others. In return, Loghren asks Andraste about her past: how she became what she is, and why she’s travelling with them. Her answers are frustratingly vague, though she does reveal that the town she was born in wasn’t very kind to those with lunargylphs. Loghren vows to one day learn all her secrets.

Meanwhile Alex asks Walton to investigate the gemstone the tree dropped See: the top of this adventure log. Walton discerns that the gem is a Ioun Stone uhhh i think that’s how it’s spelled?? that has the power to store magic. He also has Walton look at the crystal rod from the Netherena, though Walton tells him it is permanently broken. Loghren asks Andraste to examine the small burned branch he picked up from the tree. Although she is unable to tell what enchantment the branch has on it, and holds onto it for later (she promises to give it back).

The party eventually comes across a large waterfall, and set up camp at the lake bellow it. They all rest for the night, and prepare to enter the monastery soon.

A Bush With Danger

Two more dryads appear while Taman approaches the base of the large, beautiful tree. One dryad charms Loghren, while the other charms both Andraste and Dawn. The three split off from Alex and Hamas, following their respective dryads. Meanwhile, as the dryads are guiding the three to the tree, Taman is preparing to light it on fire. Before he can do so, one of the tree’s roots slams into him, and wraps around his waist.

Before Loghren strays too far, Alex casts Dispel Magic on him, and Loghren is freed from the dryad’s spell. Now free, he immediately attacks the creature (sounding just a wee bit creepy while he’s at it) it turns out my Nightmare Buddy causes nightmares. However, it does not attack him back, it merely vanishes. As Dawn is following her dryad, she speaks, loud enough for Andraste to hear, “I don’t have to lie to you.” INTERESTING.

Meanwhile, the tree has fully grasped Taman. A mouth-like shape appears in the tree’s trunk, and it attempts to eat Taman. Luckily for Taman, and the party, it fails it’s attempt, miserably. The roots then turn their attention to Loghren as Taman successfully lights the tree on fire.

As Andraste approaches the tree, Alex casts Dispel Magic on her as well, freeing her from the dryad’s charm (Meanwhile, Loghren continues to assail his former waifu the poor dryad who just wanted his help). Hamas attempts to free Taman from his bark-y prison, but is disarmed in the process – i told you he was a liability-. Dawn is also heading for the large tree, and although she is unable to discern what the dryad wants, she knows it is scared.

Roots slam into both Loghren and Andraste, pulling them towards the large tree while the tree once again fails to eat Taman it’s not a very smart tree, apparently, and he’s able to slip free.

Andraste, stealing improving upon Alex’s idea, asks the dryad if it needs help, except in Sylvan instead of Elven. It replies “protect us” before fading away. Loghren, meanwhile, continues his rampage of carnage and casts burning hands on the evil tree. When Dawn attempts to hit the tree with a firebolt, however, the tree seems to absorb the fire, and the firebolts have no effect. So instead, she decides to climb the tree, which attempts to bite her in retaliation.

As the party continues to chip away at the tree, Alex casts Locate Object on Walton’s glasses, of all things, which leads him to believe that Walton is inside the tree keep burning the tree, i say!. He looks for any openings where Walton may be hiding, but can’t find any, or any traces of Walton, for that matter. Dawn assaults the tree with Redemption, but hurts herself, which forces her to let go of her weapon. She then summons it back like two seconds later and it’s awesome. Before the tree can get any hits in, she casts shield, protecting herself.

Loghren Gets a Waifu

The following morning, Alex is the first among the group to wake up. As he wakes up, he takes a quick head count and discovers that Walton in missing. Alex is unable to find any tracks Walton may have left, but as he scans the forest, he spots a humanoid figure off in the distance. He decides to follow it why why would you do this into the forest, and it leads him deeper and deeper into the Graewood. As he moves into the trees, he notices these odd purple lights that glow and hang in the air like dust motes.

The figure is now close enough for Alex to distinguish it’s features, and it appears to be an elven woman… who oddly reminds him of his dead wife yeah no thanks can we just go?? why are we still in this forest. The creepy dead-wife-look-alike attempts to charm Alex, but he proves to be too wise THE POWER OF PELOR COMPELS YOU! He raises his voice, screaming at the creature how it’s not his wife.

Back at camp, Andraste is able to hear the massive racket Alex is making, and wakes up. Noticing that both Alex and Walton are missing, she wakes up Taman, Loghren, and Dawn, and they follow Alex’s trail into the forest. Meanwhile, the dryad is still attempting to charm Alex, but he’s able to see through her. Her appearance suddenly changes to that of a hideous combination of undead and tree woman… thing. Plant life and vegetation rapidly grow under Alex’s feet, attempting to snare him, but he is, once again, able to escape the dryad’s tricks.

AS the others begin to catch up, Loghren and Taman are the next to spot the beautiful elven woman. Taman is unaffected, and recognizes the creature as a dryad, but Loghren, however, falls for her feminine wiles. He is drawn to the dryad, and starts walking toward it. Andraste tries to stop him by giving him a sharp backhand, but it doesn’t seem to affect him Andraste attempted: backhand! it wasn’t very effective…. He reacts angrily, and Andraste gets caught in the vines Alex had escaped earlier.

Loghren attempts to shove Andraste, but she doesn’t… really move Loghren attempted: shove! It wasn’t very effective…. Taman, meanwhile, looses an arrow at the dryad, and Loghren directs his rage to him. Dawn helps out Andraste a bit before rushing the dryad. As Loghren walks away from Andraste, she is able to hit him with the Cursed Rapier i never thought I’d be able to land a hit on Loghren to be honest, but luckily he doesn’t seem to care. Andraste then, having a genius idea, tries to override the dryad’s charm spell by charming Loghren herself. It doesn’t work.

The dryad then tries to influence Dawn, but fails this dryad isn’t having the best of luck is it?. Dawn attacks it, and Loghren attempts to retaliate, but can’t pierce her armor. Although Taman does a lot of damage to the dryad, Alex is the one who finishes it off, killing it and freeing Loghren from its influence.

As they think the battle ends, Andraste is able to sense more enemies, and spots a glowing purple light behind Taman. She looses an arrow at it, and the light dissolves, only to reappear some distance away. Taman and Andraste investigate the lights, and together, they are able to determine that the lights are Dancing Lights.

While the party debates following the lights, a wounded and exhausted Hamas stumbles toward the party. He asks to accompany them in finding Walton. Despite the numerous and completely legitimate protests, Hamas accompanies the group as hey follow the lights. As the trail leads further and further into the forest, the trail suddenly dies, and Taman is pushed down a ravine. Andraste catches him, but he lets himself drop anyway, as the slope isn’t that severe.

However, while this is happening, another dryad appears, and Loghren, Dawn, and Andraste all fall under its influence…

The Red Knot Lives! For Now...

While the party is wondering whether their alive or dead, they are treated to a vision of Gery Diggly running through a dark corridor that drips with strange black ooze (tentacles also come out of the wall). As the vision ends, Gery is seen jumping into a pool of mysterious black liquid.

Taman wakes up, and finds that time around him has stopped; the world is completely still and silent. The only person currently around him is Walton, who looks unharmed. As he rises to look for his friends, he discovers that two of his fingers broke in the crash. He sets them, painfully, and looks for his companions. He first finds Andraste pinned under one of the masts with a nasty looking head wound.

Just like before, he is able to rewind time, and rewinds back far enough to where the mast is no longer pinning Andraste. He pulls her to safety, and catches time up back to normal since he can’t find any of his other companions. He heals Andraste a bit before lying down next to her. Walton finds them, and like the kind soul he is, heals them.

The two decide to look for the others while Andraste dozes off. They’re able to find Dawn hanging dangerously from a tree not too far from the ship. They use the power of teamwork to free her, and Taman heals her and wakes her up. However, she’s not completely unscathed; a few of her ribs broke in the fall.

The three set off, and find a gravely injured Captain Hamas, who’s been impaled by one of the ship’s handrails. After a few attempts, Taman is able to free Hamas from the handrail Hamas and the Handrail sounds like an awesome band name btw. After some medical attention, he is able to tell the others where he last saw Alex and Loghren.

They leave Walton with Hamas, and continue walking until they come upon a ravine. About halfway down the ravine, the bow of the ship rests. Taman uses his rope and rappels down to the remains of the ship. He is able to find an unconscious Alex and Loghren half buried underneath crate and barrels bromance is exhausting work.

Alex wakes up to a headache and a skull fracture; he heals himself and Loghren, who wakes up soon after. Alex frees himself with little difficulty, but freeing Loghren proves to be a greater challenge. With some hard work and dedication and emptying one or two barrels Loghren is finally freed. As their gathering their stuff and preparing to leave, the ship shifts and shakes, signalling that it’s about to fall deeper into the ravine.

They all barely make it out before the ship falls and being to climb back up the ravine with Dawn’s help. While this is happening, Andraste wakes up and wanders toward where she last saw Taman. She stumbles upon Walton, who heals her one last time. She gives him her medkit to heal Hamas, and he points her in the direction of the rest of the party.

She finds Dawn in the midst of pulling the others up, and helps her out and gives her a potion or two. Taman unties himself from the rope and begins to climb on his own, while Dawn and Andraste awaken their secret Amazonian powers and pull up Loghren and Alex almost effortlessly. Taman, on the other hand, fails to climb.

Once the other two are safely on the ground, Andraste and Dawn toss the rope down to Taman, and display their amazing Amazon powers once again by pulling him up to safety. Alex and Taman immediately fall asleep, and the others soon follow once Walton and Hamas approach them.

SORRY ITS SHORT I HAD TO WRITE THIS TWICE I’M SO UPSET

Parre's Personality Isn't as Cool as His Token

Following the events of Rot’s death, Captain Parre takes the Red Knot into custody, claiming that they committed murder and are up to no good eXCUSE YOU IT WAS SELF DEFENSE. Inside their cell, Loghren has been unusually quiet. When Taman asks him what happened on the boat with Rot, Loghren reveals that he made a deal with the devil Belial, and will serve it for 100 years after his death. Making this deal has turned Loghren’s hair white.

Captain Parre eventually shows up to question the party. Loghren attempts to plead their case, but Parre refuses to listen to him.However, Captain Hamas soon arrives and is able to get Parre to release the party, totally saving the day. Although the party is supposed to be escorted directly to the barracks to be kept under watch, Taman and Andraste are able to convince the Captain to take them to the Hall of the Silver Lady, first. Before they set off, Taman is able to recover some of his equipment, and returns Andraste’s daggers to her. He also gifts her with Wasp Sting it’s definitely not a rip off of Wyrm String.

As the Red Knot and Captain Parre head off, they chit chat about Hamas’s recovery and his arrival in Alton. Alex mentions Thely why. why would you do this and Andraste casts invisibility on herself in order to escape the awful memories.

When the party makes it to the temple, Alex and Hamas go in together, leaving the others behind. Sister Mary lets them in, despite the late hour, and returns the Quiver of Ehlonna to him before he leaves. Everyone is then lead through the city to the barracks, where they crack open Taman’s last bottle of fancy wine. The next morning, Andraste, with the help of Hamas, forces some poor soldier to retrieve her rapiers for her i’m not sorry!.

At the Moon Maiden, Alex gives Andraste the quiver back my preciousssss. Taman is put in charge of navigation, Andraste and Dawn are in charge of ballistae, and Alex and Loghren are bums with no jobs. The skyship has a rocky start, but is able to get airborne. Andraste visits the on board physician, and her hearing is finally FINALLY fixed. Loghren and Dawn talk about the day in Razor-Rock Ridge, and Alex learns about the sword he swiped from the masked man. Andraste attempts to teach Taman thieve’s cant, but he completely fails at learning it.

As the Moon Maiden enters the Graewood, the weather worsens and worsens until the skyship is completely encased in thick mist. In the mist, strange shapes appear to fade in and out… Using his super cool ranger senses, Taman is able to detect tat dragons are nearby. Sure enough, a huge red wyvern appears out of the mist, and it instantly kills one of the crew members. The red wyvern is joined by a pack of smaller but just as deadly wyverns. Captain Hamas 1v1s one of the creatures, but nearly dies in the attempt.

As the wyverns slowly begin to pick off crew members one by one, the big one launches a huge fireball at the ship, knocking everyone except Loghren off their feet and setting the ship on fire.

Loghren Finally Remembers Who Rot Is (Then Kills Him)

As Andraste finally conquers her greatest enemy climbs on top of the building, the rest of the party subdues their attackers, who point the party in the direction of the wooden-masked man. They eventually sneak up onto a dock, where the see | Rot | Rot step off a small ship.

At the sight of him, Loghren finally remembers who Rot is took you long enough jeez. He flashes back to the day the Black Falconswere transporting goods through Razor-Rock Ridge. There, the mercenaries are ambushed by warriors (who resemble really pissed off Grim Hornravens). Merric, ever-so noble, saves Kalash before they’re both crushed by a giant rock. Velgrim is killed by one of the warriors. In the midst of the fighting, Loghren seeks out Kallor and they both flee that’s really rude, just saying.

Back in the present, BIlly ( Rosalinde’s son) is dragged out by one of Odain’s men, and is then killed maybe if his mom wasn’t so rude he wouldn’t have died…. Fighting breaks out between Odain’s men and the Red Knot. As they trade blows, one of Odain’s men throws a Molotov at Loghren and Andraste. Andraste, the best quick thinker ever, pulls out the Dust of Dryness pellet and douses the whole party in water no need to thank me, guys.

A bit later, Captain Parre shows up with a squad of Watchers. Loghren and Odain both try to win the Captain over to their side, and Loghren eventually convinces the Captain to help the Red Knot out. At the sight of his men being arrested, Odain flees onto his boat is it a ship or a boat? i don’t care. Loghren chases after him. Meanwhile, Alex goes after the masked man (and completely obliterates one of Odain’s men while he’s at it).

Loghren and Odain fight to the death on the ship. Odain, however, isn’t nearly as cool as Loghren, and is killed we’re totally gonna take Odain’s ship.

Come on, Eileen

That night, the party sleeps in the holding area, and Andraste dreams of her past. She dreams of the job with Anderis that ended poorly, resulting in Anderis’s death. She awakens, and notices Loghren isn’t present. She seeks him out and finds him talking to Captain Parre. Parre leaves, and the two talk about their nightmares, and Loghren offers to talk to her anytime we’re totally nightmare buddies now.

That morning, Parre and Eileen talk to the party about what they learned from the Drow (who didn’t survive the experience). In the Drow’s mind, Eileen saw a large gathering of Drow surrounding a platform. On the platform stood a few female Drow around a body on an altar. They are apparently enacting Zin Carla. One of the Drow stood out; one of his arms was scaly and disfigured, and almost appeared draconic if this guy is omyzar i’m going to cry. He was also bearing the symbol that the Drow mage was carrying.

The party also asks Parre about Rot before they leave, and Parre allows them to join the raid on Chum Street (but he makes them promise to follow his commands).

As there is still time before the meeting with Prince Aedin, the party goes shopping i’m gracefully omitting the details of our shopping venture. you’re welcome. Dawn goes off on her own, saying she’ll meet the party later, but Andraste tails her to a building near the bowyer she stole reacquired the quiver from.

Later on, after the party has regrouped, they meet Aedin at the iron manufactory and everyone is impressed by his longsword. Aedin busts open the doors Aragorn style and reveals the Moon Maiden, a ship made of sky iron that can supposedly fly. It’s 1000000% safe and definitely won’t result in anyone’s death.

Alex gives Taman the dagger to give to Andraste yes give me presents. Loghren also gets his spear back. When Andraste brushes up against it, she is suddenly given a vision of a ruby-red eye (as well as a huge migraine). She pulls him aside and tells him she wants to talk to him later.

They then head for the waterfront, chasing the tip given to them by Andraste’s thief friend. There, Andraste sees people from the outskirts of Alton being led off a ship. She also sees the man in the wooden mask Taman described. Figuring that the masked man will probably lead them to Rot, the party gives chase.

As they follow the man and the civilians through the city, they encounter a bearded man who almost gives away their position. In the process of knocking the man out, the party gives away their position, and are attacked by other men.

Bad Jokes Conquer All

Taman and Andraste take first watch of the Drow. Since he doesn’t seem to be moving or doing anything, really the two take the time to examine the ring, rapier, and wand they pulled off his body i refuse to reword that. Taman then leaves to wake Dawn for the next shift. As Dawn and Andraste watch over the Drow, the room suddenly goes dark. Andraste tries to cast Light on Dawn, but the spell doesn’t work properly .

The two make their way to the door, and as Andraste moves into the hall, Dawn is yanked backward into the room. Andraste goes back for her and Dawn manages to free herself. They make it out into the hall, and out of the darkness. Dawn goes to wake Loghren and Alex, while Andraste heads for Taman.

Almost immediately, Alex wakes up and casts Sunlight, dispelling the darkness. The room now lit, the party is able to see that what appeared to be a spider escaping out the window. Andraste, Taman, and Alex follow it through the window and onto the roof while Dawn and Loghren make their way to street level.

6800ed8372cf39ce3d82f84fdd092279.jpg

The party chases the spider/drow across several rooftops as it tears its way through the city. Taman takes several shots at it, but it doesn’t seem fazed. At one point Dawn attempts to climb onto the roof and join the other three, but fails miserably. As the spider tightropes over a canal, Andraste scream the worst joke ever at it, and it collapses laughing.

As the party catches up to it, they discover that the spider/drow is actually one horrible monstrosity. So Taman and Andraste push it off roof. As the party fights it, two Watchers appear, but they don’t intervene. During the fight, Dawn severs several of the Drider’s spider legs i feel so grossed out just writing it, and eventually the spider half seems to melt away. The drow, near death, casts Circle of Death and tries to limp away, only to get smacked by Alex’s battleaxe yeah i don’t think i can word that any better.

They carry the unconscious Drow to the Watcher’s base of operation, where he is subsequently locked into a holding cell. Taman tries to bribe Captain Parre to let them go and avoid questioning, but the Captain doesn’t take too kindly to it Taman plz. The party is allowed to rest, but they will be held for questioning.
