The Sanguine Harvest

Session Five
Visions and Divisions

After a very brief chase, the stolen painting was returned to its rightful thief and the assailant lay dead with an arrow in his back.

They looted the body, finding a ring. The party set off to check on Annie. Shilo decided to leave the others to investigate the cryptic scrawled note that had been looted from Knux after the battle of the ruined church.

Arriving in the night at their room in The Green Brush, the party found Annie awake and in a bad state, Kallora comforted her and she settled. Later that she awoke distraught and panicking over a dream.

Meanwhile Shilo slept in an inn by the docks after a nutritious carrot dinner. When morning came he went out to investigate the note, correctly interpreting it as a map he located three similar buildings across The Puddles, all bearing the image of a corvid on the front doors. Deciding not to pry any further alone he abandoned this investigation for now.

The rest of the party made their way through the puddles and as they passed by the Refugee Camp in the centre of the district, decided to explore.

Session Four
Art Attack

Vondal, alone in a room but for the flayed corpse of Bersk and a caged weasel called Heracles, pondered his next move. Vondal took a moment to feed Heracles, the weasel appeared not to have been recently fed and gratefully feasted on the leaves and offal.

Before long, there was an ominous sound of footsteps and a knock at the door to the room. Without preamble Vondal facilitated the entering of a tall, pale man into the threshold of the blooded room by opening the door.

Outstretching an open hand and with a voice that seemed to echo inside the dwarf’s head, the man demanded the stolen painting be handed over and through what would seem to be magic, forced a confession from Vondal’s own lips.

In answer, Heracles was sent speeding through the air, colliding with this stranger, he then bursted from his cage and dashed for the window. Vondal used the distraction to barrel through the man and make his escape.

Meanwhile, Kallora and Annie were on the other side of the puddles, where a lone survivor from the scuffle at the church was calling for reinforcements.

Seeing what appeared to be people in need, Kallora went to offer assistance before deciding against assisting these armed strangers. She found an inn for Annie and went to investigate the situation further…

Our “human” trio, having piled up and looted the bodies of these Thieves Guild members, took the demonborn: Forion and Lysandra along with their baby across the city towards the docks where they found Vondal talking to Sir Grifilax of the Whiteguard. After a long discussion about Annie, the Knight left to continue his search. Reunited with Vondal the group paid a fisherman to transport their abyssal friends out of the city and onto the shore to the north.

As the boat drifted away, the pale man with the dark armour launched an attack on the group, just as Kallora, on the trail of the survivors of the church battle, arrived on the scene.

The fight was quick and brutal, but as soon as there was an opportunity, the assailant grabbed hold of the stolen painting and disappeared…

Session Three
Demons Within

On arrival in Nuremstadt our three “humans” were hastily processed by disinterested clerks and hastened through to The Puddles.

On arrival, after much shouting, a couple of men approached them and made them an offer

Having agreed to the offer the group made their way to a seemingly abandoned ruined church, a burned out husk of a building. They boldly entered. Then scorn blasted open a door and everyone had a little fight with a demonborn.

Meanwhile the others: Kallora and Vondal, made their way through the queue. Kallora went to explore Handelplatz and check on Annie while Vondal took his stolen painting into The Puddles to look for Bersk, his fence and fixer.

Eventually Shilo, in the language of the demonborn, calmed the situation down and the group spent a while conversing. They learned the story of Forion and Lysandra and took it upon themselves to smuggle them out of the city.

On exiting they had a showdown with the Thieves’ Guild, killing all but one of the bandits.

Vondal coerced an apparent beggar/secret information broker into providing Bersk’s location, upon arrival he found Bersk had been flayed to death; perhaps recently.

Kallora blackmailed Sally Fabulous then brought Annie into The Puddles for a cheap place to sleep.

Session Two
Struck Down

Stopping off at a travel inn on the way to Nuremstadt, the party became embroiled in an investigation into an attempted murder on their travelling companion Annie.

By morning the primary culprit was Raul. Once an incriminating portfolio was appropriated and delivered to the guards Raul bolted but was tackled by Shilo, causing a dogpile.

Soon after they departed to complete their journey to the capital. Upon arrival the party split up.

Session One
Road Rage

The party fought in defence of Reinmarsch after stealing a painting, breaking out of prison and arguing with an old man.

In the battle, some of the orcs had glowing red eyes and were filled with bloodlust, shrugging of blows and striking with great power. The wizard Aricides believed he detected the power of Kaelphaan at work. He requested the party head to Nuremstadt, and inform the wizards of Faustshaken.

On the way there they killed a man.
