Rise of the 13th Age

Session 2

The party trekked south to the second location provided by Mayor Songsteel. They discovered a ritual in progress, with Darshee Jarona in the center, tied up and towered over by an orc shaman. Mung Bean attempted to distract the shaman, while the party surrounded the site. However, Jimmy Brimstone ruined the ambush after climbing into a tree which subsequently fell on him. Thus began an epic battle, during which our heroes drew upon numerous icon relationships. They were able to prevent the completion of the ritual, and the sacrifice of Darshee, but the shaman managed to summon an imp, albeit in a weakened state, anyways. The imp quickly realized that the battle had already been won by the adventurers, and begged for its life, offering information to Jimmy about his father. The team accepted the deal, learning that Jimmy’s father was involved in the Wintercrest Massacre. Our heroes quickly decided to renege on their promise to allow the imp to live, and it was split in two by Sarloc’s axe. Darshees begged for forgiveness from Bartholomew, as apparently she had attempted to make a contract with the Diabolist to seek revenge on Highburn for her failing business. The team reflected on their experiences as they made their way back to Highburn.

Session 1
The Adventure Begins

On a warm spring day, five adventurers, Bartholomew the Holy , Holden, Jimmy Brimstone, Mung Bean, and Sarloc, found themselves in a marketplace in the town of Highburn. Different paths had brought them here, whether they were seeking fortune or redemption, answers or peace of mind, or running from their pasts. The town was suddenly beset by goblins and orcs touched with a demonic taint. The adventurers were able to defeat the attackers, though not without some difficulty. Following the battle, Mayor Songsteel came across the party, sword drawn and flanked by guards after her own fights, and, recognizing their prowess in battle, asked them to join her at sundown at her office. The office was littered with an eclectic mix of prizes, most notably, a furniture set that featured legs that ended in eagle claws whose talons tapped nearly incessantly. Mayor Songsteel tasked the party with finding an elf named Darshee Jarona who was captured by the goblins. After a series of tense negotiations, the party was given 50 gp with a promise of 50 more upon their return. They were given two possible locations for the attack. The first was a clearing to the east in the Bitterwood. The second, a cave series slightly to the north of that. Following a night of preparation, and partying… Well, mostly partying that included ale, hallucinogenic tea, and a porcupine on a leash. The following morning, the adventurers trekked to the caves and encountered a small number of fungaloids, but send them packing after a brief skirmish. After the combat, Holden was drawn to a small subterranean creek, where he found the Wand of the Bloodless Mage, a cursed item. The party took some time to catch it’s breath, then continued its journey to the clearings to their south.
