Esra and the fall of Shethalas

Netherese Pyramid level 2

The party defeated the Guardian of the first level by using the turrets located in the room. They headed up an elevator onto a large dance hall with dancing skeletons. This grotesque dance almost cost the party several characters but quick thinking saved them. The party headed upstairs into a patrol of undead soldiers. The party tried to avoid them but ultimately gave the patrol battle. The final room involved an undead king, a beholder. A beholder zombie gave the party a great deal of trouble. Ultimately skilled tactics enabled them to defeat the zombie and survive to travel further into the dungeon.

A murder in Phlan

After the defeat of the Sea witches. The paladin took the corpse of Varis to bury him and make amends. Zantakul helped this journey through the teleportation ring. The group gained two bounty hunters who had previously met. The bounty hunters had come to king’s pyre to kill the sea witches. The bounty hunters joined with the party, they were an eldritch knight and a monk.

The party set to return to Phlan along the way they ran into two boats. These boats told them about trouble and murder brewing in Phlan. Upon returning to Phlan it was revealed the Prince of Faem had been killed in a bizarre fashion. In addition a mysterious person known as the blood mage. Stated he would kill two people everyday until the Lord Regent released Jarat Iron and Jonathen. While solving the murder the party had to contend with the lotus dragons and jealous knights.

The murder scene suggested a skilled magic user wearing a mithral ring. There was also a knife found at scene. The guest book revealed five suspects: A gnome, half elf, elf, human and half orc. The gnome was quickly absolved of guilt. The murders began to escalate in boldness. It was revealed that a Babau (blood demon) was doing the killing. The party went to Albina estate to question party goers (motives for killing the prince) and the seedy bar the Bitter Blade (motives for the suspects). Both of these locations it was eventually suggested that the city watch should arrest the suspects. The morgue and evidence locker also gave clues (means of killing the prince). Eventually the elf turned himself in as a way to prove his innocence (this was an elaborate red herring on his part). After this the half elf was considered the primary suspect and she was arrested. However some last minute clues revealed that the elf was behind the murders.

After the identity of the murderer was revealed. Carric was named next by the blood mage. In addition Jarat and Jonathen were released. The blood demon attacked the party while they were revealing their evidence to the lord regent. They entered a pitched battle and defeated their opponent. Their actions cleared the half elf. After some discussion it was revealed that she was a Harper. A secret organization wishing to keep peace and stability in the realms. The party was told to meet a Harper agent in one week’s time.

The party went to arrest the elf but he was found murdered , perhaps the blood mage is still out there.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
