When last we left our Cadre of Heretics they had just come up out of the underground tunnels, sans Alexander… who has died. Strife will be rolling back in tonight, but she’s arriving late, and will be joining us later. Ozzy and NA are both here though, and though we often forget him, our NPC friend the elf Tomas.
So yes!!! Off we go… into… well… OUT OF… someplace… to someplace.
Good evening! It’s time for another rousing installment of Heretics to the Empire! When last we left our cadre of heretics, they had just had their asses handed to them by a thing in the dark that animated a bunch of skeletons and hurt us badly… well except Silas who had more sense than that (because Ozzy wasn’t here.)
All players are present tonight, which is good because we could use all hands on deck for this dungeon.
When last we left our Cadre of Heretics, we were locked up in a cell with Cassie’s leg quite near to chopped off. We’re still waiting to hear back from the Orc Shaman as to whether or not he’s going to let the party go tool around the undercity, and hoping to Amaunator we don’t have to go back into the arena before we manage to get Cassie’s leg back on.
Ozzy has called in sick tonight, so Silas is an NPC. The half orc and the elf… have presumably perma-flaked and shan’t be mentioned again unless they ever manage to show up. We still have far too much booze from the last session of “Elder Forge” so… yeah… game…
So when last we left our cadre of heretics, they were about to get their asses handed to them by a bunch of orcs in the orc city, after Adrian and Cassie drew attention by getting into an argument about magic items and who was or was not pulling their weight.
For outside reference, Majere has dropped game so Adrian is now an NPC, but also he’s is still HERE because he lives with Q, the DM. Cassie leveled up once in Cloistered Cleric, and Alexander in Scout, making them Expert 10/Cleric 3, and Paladin 10, Scout 3, respectively. Last game’s new Half-Orc, and Elf have called in absent, and we have two more newbies Ozzy and NA, that will be rolling in as the night progresses. Also we bought Mike’s Hard Lemonade and some Smirnov… so… this may well devolve into Dungeons and Drunkards…
So yes… INITIATIVES!!!
So here we go on… when last we left our little cadre of heretics, we were in a field, having just talked to some Orc cow-herds that warned Adrian that there were a bunch more Orcs between us and our goal, (a dot on a map in the middle of the unconquered territories) and that the only reason they weren’t killing him was a polocy against killing the mentally impaired. Tonight we have two newbies who I’ll mention when they roll in, and an observer whom I will call “Ozymandias” or Ozzy for short.
So our cast, for reminders, here is Cassie the Cleric, played by me, Adrian the Wizard, played by Majere, and Alexander the Paladin, played by Strife. Our DM is Q, OOC chat is in italics and off we go!!!!
