MVP: Once Upon a Steam -Session 5

Albert Potter could only watch as the heroes battle hard against the winged lizards at the entrance to their cave. All the time, the screams of a frightened Jossie potter echoed. Under the command of Major Mongomery, they were a machine of death! One by one, the lizards fell and they were victorious.

Wasting no time, they rushed to the pit where Josie had been dumped, amongst the carrion of previous prey.

She was not alone…

An old prospector, he died in the arms of Volodar and after searching his belongings, they discovered his tale. He and his companions were digging in the ruins of Misty Dale after a valuable treasure.

Now the party has access to the maps and the location of this treasure. Albert was grateful for the rescue of his wife and agreed to fund their expedition if they chose to venture out in search of Misty Dale once they reached Nestor.

MVP: LoR – The Raven Claw Wand -Part 3

Continuing their journey across the southern regions of Elarsa and into the forest kingdom of Koranthos, home of the Shae-Du. The heroes soon find the ruins of Kelos. As Danae is about to place the RavenClaw wand into the Moon-lit pool Sylvarius spots a dark shape lurking nearby in the bushes, within the ruins. 

They soon discover an old Stygian (Bird-folk) called Polydectes, who tells his tale. He was waiting for Glyke to bring him his daughter Demitira, who had been transformed into a wand by the Sorcerer Nemnon. 

After informing Poldectes that they possess the wand and of Glykes demise, Danae steps forward and places the wand into the pool. 

The ghost-like image of the Stygian Oracle, Demitria manifests before them. She tells her tale that Nemnon was using her to locate the Atesor Stones, which are located on the Isle of Pandora. Where or how to locate the Isle she kept as a guarded secret. She then agreed to assist the party if they rescue her and free her from the wand. She instructed them to take the Wand to the tallest peak of the Brontes Mountains and seek Aukalas. 

Then bursting into the ruins from the first armed men dressed in dark garb raced towards the group, shouting ‘Retrieve the wand! Kill the Shae-du!’ Accompanying the darkly clad men were Elarsan Troops from Asteros! A battle ensued…

Varos fell, but Adendocles one o fthe Elarsans was an ally of Sylvarius and came to their aid, running they raced through the forest. The Elarsans hot on their tails…

MVP: Once Upon a Steam -Session 4

The Brave heroes battled long and hard to protect the wagons once more from the winged monstrosities that wish to feast upon our bones…

But, they were successful in protecting the wagons and most of the horses.

However, the attack did not go by without its fair share of casualties. Most noted was that of Mrs Potter who was stolen away by the winged beasts!

Now, Mr Potter was not exactly a combatant, but he was not going to stand by and let his wife suffer some hellish fate. So he put together a Posse and went out after her.

Following the direction the beasts flew in, they found some mutilated remains from a horse, all fresh and the splash marks said it fell from the sky.. now, they made an educated guess and climbed a nearby valley into the rocky hills…

That’s where they found the beast’s lair… but there was a host of ’em… and the Posse was not quiet about their approach! All hell broke loose…

The heroes return from the ruins of Moondale was greatly received. Especially from Jed Murphy, whose brother relied on the healing waters they retrieved.

After a debate with Jossie and Albert Potter, they decided to stick around instead of going out huntin’ for Mrs Potters lost necklace. Much to her dissatisfaction.

They got to know some of the folk around the fire that night, but then the heavens opened up and fist-sized hailstone smashed down into the camp… Everyone scattered screaming in pain. The heroes helped out best they could. Gettin’ people to safety and all… Belle, which a few had a fancy for, gave ‘ol Mr Stonehold a mighty reward for his bravery.

With Hank Murphy feelin’ better the wagons were on the road once more! But the day was a total opposite to the night, The sweltering heat beating down. How the heroes did not pass out is anyone’s guess…

But that night during camp not many days away from Nestor. The winged lizards came and once more the heroes found themselves defending the wagons, this time the horses as those scaly bastards fancied themselves some horse meat!

MVP: LoR – The Raven Claw Wand -Part 2

On the hills outside Asteros, the party bury the dead Glyke. As they watch patrols marching up the roads that are lined with crucified Shae-Du, it was decided to head to the ruins of Kelos across the country. Amara recalls her father would often talk of the magical moon pools there which allow you to commune with the ancient spirits of the Shae-Du. Evander states that he too has heard of these moon pools and that their powers only work during a full moon.

As they travelled across the hills of Asteros heading South towards Laphaenia they find themselves ambushed by bandits. Spotting Danae the BAndits enraged by their hatred for the Shae-Du, begin to target her, one manages to fight through the parties defence and slice’s her throat!…

Gurgling and choking on her own blood, Danae gasps as Mortis, Keeper of Souls waits for her to enter the underworld…But Amara, sprints across the battlefield, evoking the powers of IO Amara managed to drag poor Danae back from the Underworld.

Dispatching the bandits the party continued their journey to Kelos. They made good ground and enjoyed the solitude of the countryside as they travelled. Several days later they came across the River Davos. Mythras attempted to fly the party across, but his wings were not strong enough and they plummetted into the fast-moving waters of the Davos. Battling their way across the great river before drowning, they found themselves exhausted on its banks…

It was decided to camp for the night…

MVP: Once Upon a Steam -Session 1

We were all part of a colonial wagon train heading South through the Lands of Peridor towards the Mining Territories of Shalna, either as passengers of noblemen, dancers, gamblers, prospectors, steam inventor, doctor or as one of the painted ladies, a saloon girl. A mix of races…Or as a Bounty Hunter or hired gunslinger to protect the wagons.

All was going well as we were a few days out of Nestor travelling the prairies of Peridor when we heared a mighty rucuss, the haunting horns of the Pale Riders as the dead rode their rotten horses down the slopes towards our Wagons! That’s when we came to know those we will never forget, they stood out and faced them to help protect those who could not protect themselves…
