Poking Dead things With Sticks

Counting corpses
Updates/recaps

Four dead in a hangmans tree, one dead tree, one dead human female. The bodies are piling up and you have yet to encounter another living humanoid since getting this close to Feldgrau. Now standing on the war ravaged roads itself you can see the handiwork of the enemies but know not where they might be waiting, what they are doing and how aware of being followed they may be. There is more death to come, but on which side?

Use caution.

is a lie.

Not all dreams bring warm fuzzy feelings when waking up.

But hey, Usas found her sister’s remains. That is something, right?

“So…..we’re doing this?”

Jushyn and Niri were deafened yet the two unable to communicate effectively on the actions to be performed were the casters. Hopefully they can work it out without needing an antimagic field to keep from killing each other.

17 cows downed. They had no beef with you!

Milking this battle.....
Updates/recaps

After restocking supplies the party left Chastel, heading over the border into Ardeal. The first few farms and manors proved of little interest until coming across a field of cattle.

47 cattle.

47 undead cattle.

The NOPE was strong with even Jushyn. But the solitary human strapped to one in the midst of the herd was not as easily ignored. It appears to have been a member of the Whispering Way, stripped of everything but his clothes, necklace and a haversack that unfortunately had been holding 6 Allips, that Jik freed into the midst of the zombie cows. Zows? Combies? ANYWAY……good thing for hide from undead. That could have been messy.

Kendra has been spying….I mean SCRYING on the group, sadly her luck hasn’t been holding out on being able to communicate while doing so. So much magic and no easy long distance conversation methods. Pft. So sadly no updates on her relocation or the small issue of the active serial killer that seems to have a grudge against the party for ruining his business prospects in one of the finest cities in Ustalav. Meddling murder hobos.

Allies
Updates/recaps

After leaving the temple and surviving the ambush you came across what remained of the hirelings of Duristan. They had been brutally slaughtered and partially eaten, an encounter with the Prince’s wolves proved helpful in finding out that Duristan, although wounded, had fled to the east as well as finding that the Demon wolves were the pack at fault in the killing.

Rhakis offered an alliance of sorts, sharing a common enemy. It seems the rumors of them standing against the Whispering Way all those years ago may be true.

Chastel greeted you with more possible allies in the battle going forward, granted one of them is a bit under the weather and the other is extremely suspicious of your new look.

After activating the Duskmoth the party was able to communicate directly with the divine being that created the stars above. She gifted the group a series of visions of things yet to come.

1.The party facing a black-robed necromancer wearing a bone breastplate as he stands before a ruined tower.
2.The party fighting a terrifying, tentacled monster.
3.The party confronting a beautiful female vampire spellcaster in an underground chamber.
4.Usas standing before a beautiful Elven woman with long dark hair, covered in blood and beckoning to her.
5.The party battling a decaying lich, blazing with arcane power, atop a high spire beneath dark, churning clouds.

Unfortunately she didn’t think it necessary to mention the waiting ambush of Primals shortly after the group reentered the deeper woods. No one perished, so the Resplendent Goddess of Fortune was smiling down on you still.

Not much else to worry about. Well except the mutilated corpse pieces strewn about. Duristan isn’t having a lot of luck with his hired hands.

Burn the maiden at the top of the tower!
Updates/recaps

The party Murder hoboed their way through most of the Broken Ones and Silverhides left holding the tower from the Primals, taking out Mathus at the top and wounding Cybrisa to the point she almost ran. She heard the accusations against Mathus and decided better than to continue a cause that was not the one she was led to believe she was fighting for, in hopes that the group of blood thirsty humans will let her tribe go in peace.

Bunch of animals.

But hey, you are standing in the Dusk Moth….or at least what is has become. Want to try a ritual?

The people under the stairs
Updates/recaps

After dodging silvered crossbow bolts that were being rained upon the party from a group or werewolves 25 feet up at the base of Highthrone and losing track of Duristan and his two hirelings the group managed to dash into the lower part of the aged temple of Desna.

The Vilkacis was waiting, it managed to overtake Niri again and she was badly wounded during the battle but managed to bite both Jik and Jushyn while raving under the beasts influence.

Further exploration found a decaying corpse of one of the Whispering Way, she had a map with coordinates of the places you have trailed them so far as well as what may very well be the next targeted area.

Estovion was also found, he had been bitten and was near madness while hiding there, you were able to remove the canopic stone from his cold, dead, hands and destroy it. Making certain the Vilkacis will not be returning to this plane of existence anytime soon.

Estovion has left the building.
Updates/recaps

After deciding to confront Estovion Lozarov with the information the party has gathered and finding his office vacant except for some happily burning documents, which further implicate him in the plight of the wolves, the group has headed towards the Stairs of the Moon themselves.

The trip has been exciting so far, two Vollensag barbarians managed to catch you in the wood, although they have been taken down they had time enough to send out a howl to the others in the area. Things are about to get….hairy.

The full moon approaches.

Possession is 9/10 of the problem.....
Updates/recaps

The spirit planchette was able to give more info on what may have transpired before the party arrived. Estovion, in some way, was the contact the Whispering Way agents were in touch with in Ascanor. The group seems to have a few ideas of where to go from here.

The lodge seemed to be pretty shaken up about the loss of the Margrave, while some of the locals are positive it must be an attack from the infamous **Devil in Gray. Duristan seemed excited that there may be a werewolf amongst the guests or staff and went around trying to stab people with a silver dining fork, leaving off a bit after Usas offered to give him a second asshole.

A second noble lost his life in the evening following the Margrave, Corvin Tergsvor. He approached the party in the night having been possessed by some kind of wolf spirit. Jik attempted to free him from it but was not able to in the midst of the battle in close quarters, Jushyn was bitten and clawed badly and Niri dealt the killing blow, which seemed to have the spirit take particular interest in her, possessing her next and trying to continue the attack. Usas was able to get the protection from evil spell into effect and Niri, with a cooler head, was able to injure herself with her dagger, dealing a great deal of damage to herself in the process but forcing the spirit out of her body. The group attempted to battle the incorporeal wolf, but it leapt through the floor and away.

**The Devil in Gray: It’s the size of a charger with an ashgray pelt. Its howl summons up devils and drives those who hear it mad. Its jaws can crush a horse’s skull, and it can vanish in a cloud of mist and dust. Countless tales surround the Devil in Gray, the most feared murderer in Lozeri.
Beginning its unpredictable rampage 10 years ago with the savaging of a lone washerwoman, its bloody legend includes attacks on whole parties of pursuers and, in 4701, invading Chastel, where it slaughtered nearly 20 victims. Dozens of deaths across the county are attributed to the Devil’s fangs, and though many claim to have slain the beast, its depredations continue even after a decade of horror. While some claim the creature is a werewolf, supposedly even the Shudderwood’s lycanthropes fear and avoid the beast. Though human hunters have never been able to track the creature, the werewolves supposedly know of its lair, a place of grisly trophies and ravenous pups.
