[Adventure] The Seeds of Chaos - Judge NeededWelcome all to the
Seeds of Chaos
The following players/characters are a part of this adventure:
Son of Meepo's Fhangrim (and let's not forget about Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, and Ursa Maximus)
Wife of Meepo's Ilex (and Luna...and Noctua Ursa...)
Before we get to the fun stuff, let's go over the basic rules of engagement for this adventure.
I will be using the Malenkirk battle system, which means I will roll initiative for everyone and all monsters/bad-guys will go on the same initiative.
Battles will follow this pattern:
1) If monsters roll highest initiative, then they will go first, followed by all of the PCs.
2) If the PCs roll highest initiative, they will go first, followed by all of the PCs.
3) If some of the PCs roll higher than the monsters, those PCs will go first, followed by the monsters. After that, ALL PCs will take a turn, followed by the monsters next turn. Rinse & repeat until combat is over.
When we get to our first battle, I will be using Google Docs to handle the mapping.
I will be using this post to track some things below, such as XP earned, treasure allocated, etc.
Treasure Given & Wealth Levels
And now to start the adventure!
Lieutenant Proudman waits for you outside of the Hanged Man.
"Thank you, once again, for volunteering to help Daunton in repelling the mad invaders that have come to our shores. Our destination is only a few minutes walk from here, but please feel free to make any purchases you may need to make before we get there. I want you all to come back alive, and I'd hate to see you not come back due to lack of preparedness."

Magsman (Lvl 14)
Leather joins the others out on the street looking slightly sheepish, hands full of scraps gathered from the tavern. "I don't have any money left to do any more spending. What I've got is what I've got."
He offers no explanation as to why he is carrying scraps though you do hear an excited hiss emerge from a nearby sewer grate.

It takes Fhangrim a few extra minutes to circle back around to meet with the others, still humming the same tune.
"Pardon my tardiness, but I did here mention about wererats, so I thought I would stop at the alchemist's shop on the way."
Fhangrim holds up a single vial of Alchemical Silver that he purchased.
You notice his two girls are outfitted with everburning torches secured to their collars and Fhangrim himself has a bundle of sunrods piled next to him.

"If poking around is the sewers has taught me anything, it's that one: Always be prepared for a fight as there's no telling what you might face. And two: Always bring spare clothes, since there's no telling what you might step in." Torqua says, showing off her shiney new ruby Amulet.
"So who are the girls?" She asks Fhangrim, noticing his twin torchbearers.

Fhangrim bows to Torqua and gestures to the cages with a flourish.
"My girls are named The Unbelievable Ursa Major, and her darling daughter The Ubiquitous Ursa Minor!
You see, it has been our custom to give animals names and borrowed from Ancient Imperia as it so does get their goat to have animals equated with their honored citizens.
However, if you pay careful attention you can also sense the presence of the Unparalleled Ursa Maximus, the father who met an unfortunate end before his time."

Minor Trickster (Lvl 4)
Haaku double-checks that his healing potions are stowed safely in the sash tied at his waist, and waits for Ilex to join them. He lets Fhangrim handle introductions, (though the mention of Ursa Maximus catches his ear, and Haaku tucks it away) and addresses Leather. "How narrow are the sewers? Fighting in close quarters might be complicated with our numbers. Stealth may also be impractical- we'll have to move quickly down..." He trails off, eyeing Leather's armful of bread crusts and gristle. "Uh..."

Before Ilex joins the group she takes a few moments to call her companion back from the feywild. Noctua, Noctua Ursus. Want to come out and play? Come on girl, Let's go play. You see a slight shimmer in the air a few yards away and bounding out you see an "small" owlbear with a stick in its beak. The owlbear slows when it come up to Ilex and walks around Ilex rubbing up against her legs. Ilex takes a moment to rub Noctua behind her ears. She then takes the stick and tosses it a short distance away. The owlbear chases the stick and brings it back to Ilex. Good girl, good girl. But that's not what we are playing. Do you want to go chase some big rats in the sewers? Noctua flaps her wings excitedly Ok then, lets get some supplies.
Ilex and her companion wander off briefly returning with a new pouch at Ilex waist (nightmare tongue dust) and a matching Everburning torch for Noctua. Ilex's Moonwisp (Luna) is floating around her head. Is everyone here? Ilex's checks attendance Great, is there anything this divining diva should ask about via augury before we set out?

"You can see into the future?" Torqua asks interested. "Ask when I get my own statue. I need to make sure it's big enough and has eyes that light up. No wait! Ask when I get a cake named after me!"

Seeing that the group was assembled, Lieutenant Proudman leads the adventurers through the winding streets of downtown Daunton. The caged and free-wandering owl bears cause more than one set of stares from merchants (particularly the food kind) and city travelers, who give the group a wide berth wherever they are lead. Eventually, Proudman leads you to what seems like a dead-end alley.
Though the body is no longer present, a large red blood stain can be seen on the ground where the city's latest victim was killed. Large splashes of blood can be seen leading away from the larger stain, and a few small chunks of some kind of muscle can be seen on the ground near a pried open sewer grate that you could only assume is part of the victim's heart.
Remembering that some of the adventurers' were larger than your average human sewer worker, the Lieutenant unsheathed his sword and worked at prying open the grate fully to allow for ease of access, and also to keep the animals and other larger adventurers from being cut on the sharpened edges of pried open grate bars.
"There you go. Now it's up to you guys. I'll have one of my men stop by the Hanged Man a few times a day in case you need something, or have something to report. I seriously doubt that any of my men are alive down there, but if any of them are still putting up the good fight, do me a favor and get him out of there safely."

"Well not time like the present to get going. Like my dear mother used to say, 'Early owlbear gets the goblin.'"
Fhangrim conjures the spirit of Ursa Maximus in the sewer just in case something was waiting for them below.
After waiting a moment to see if anything happens, the gnoll descends into the sewer, then pauses for one of the stronger men to help Fhangrim get the girls down.
"A little hand for my girls if you would good sir?"
