OOC: Mindra only lost temp HP, so she is good on that front. The -3 strength will just have to wait until she gets some sleep.

As we approach the village Mindra will put her bow down on the deck right next to her so that it is out of sight, but can be grabbed easily if she needs it.

Despute being fairly charismatic in general, Owyn is't actually trained in any skills relevant to the situation. Thus, he sheaths his sword and stands ready, though he keeps his shield out for now, standing close to Butrea lest they be attacked again.

Bows were drawn as the keelboat approached the river shore, and Crimsyn and Alet busied themselves bringing in the sail, weapons sheathed, but at hand. No one fired, however.

“We come to parley,” Crimsyn told the Imperial villagers, “and bring outsiders with news.”

“Outsiders?”
a woman scoffed, then spat. Her arm was bandaged, but she still held a sword. “I recall seeing these fight beside you this morning.” Many of those gathered to greet them had bandaged wounds, clearly part of the raiding party that morning.

"We fought to save lives, theirs and yours. The captain of your attack forced us to kill him, though many others were captured alive."

Changing his mind, Owyn speaks up afterall. He adjusts his shield to show off the heraldry upon it's surface, though much of it was worn off through the fighting he'd done.

"I am a servant of the Empire, and though I am here in no official capacity, I can tell you that the war you fight has long ended."

Theremin is first surprised by Owyn’s atypical loquaciousness. He nods in agreement to the warrior’ comments and adds: “Indeed, your brothers in arms can attest that we offered to parlay on multiple occasions. The captain was a brave man an worthy warrior that didn’t want to listen, but we brought back your companions that can confirm that we sought to avoid unnecessary deaths.” Taking a breath for this to sink in, theremin continues “what my friend here is saying is true, the war ended years ago and there is peace now. I can sing you many songs about the end of the war; it was a cause of great celebrations.”

There was a murmur of surprise when Owyn showed his heraldry, matching their own battle standards. Crimsyn and Alet brought out their two prisoners and freed them as a show of good faith.

“We brought supplies as well for the parley,” Crimsyn said, as weapons were lowered at Theremin and Owyn’s wods.

“So the Empire crushed those rebel Essian scum and those Helvekian traitors?” someone called out.

Weapons were lowered warily, but it was clear that these shadowfell refugees were surprised and interested at the news and wanted to talk to these outsiders.

“It is late, and you have traveled far,” an older man said, and there were few of these in the camp to be seen, much like back in Crimsyn and Alet’s camp, where most were younger. Like them, many of these villagers had the marks of living here for so long, plaid to grey skin, dark hair and eyes, and many wore the same tattoos, ritual scars, piercings, and painful cilices as had those in the other village. “I suppose you’ll be wanting to see Ulfgar Balderk then? You can tell him your tale in the morning.”

The gates were opened, and they were led inside and put up in a large house for the night, with armed guards posted, but otherwise were unmolested, if they wished to rest, and food was brought, the same pale, strange vegetables and some kind of pale fish, mostly bland, like the fare at the other village, though filling.

OOC: If you want to rest, you can get a long rest. You will recover all your strength as well as your hit points and spells. And everyone needs to roll a Wisdom save.

Theremin sighs in relief quietly, glad that these folks are willing to listen. He looks at the village and thinks to himself “we may save all of you yet, and not loose our own skin!

He hen proceeds to eat, rest and observes as much as possible. During the evening he flirts with Crymsin, and tries to learn why so many people wear cilices.

Crimsyn is more than open to Theremin’s flirting. When he inquires about the cilices, she takes hers off, showing the sharp points that press into her skin when she wraps it around her arm. It would be painful.

“We live in the land of the dead,” Crimsyn explained. “This place presses down on you. The pain -- and pleasure,” she smiles at Theremin and kisses him heartily, “ground you, remind you that you’re alive, and not some dead shade.”

If Theremin proves amenable, Crimsyn goes well beyond flirting, and beds him aggressively, proving a most voracious lover, definitely leaving him marked with bites, bruises, and scratches

Theremin wakes up in a cold sweat, in a severe state of dread. He has disadvantage on all saving throws and gains the following flaw: “I am convinced that this place is going to kill me.”

Theremin goes with the flow, and enjoys the active night with Crimsyn. With impeccable bedside manners, he makes sure she falls peacefully to sleep by playing a soft tune, once they are both spent.

He expected the night to be restful, but alas, wakes up with a severe state of dread. He even has the impression that his skin, and everything else he sees is a bit more grey. Looking at the sleeping beauty next to him, he softly strokes her hair. When she wakes up, he conjures his best smile given his state, and says softly: "Thank you for remining me yesterday that I am alive. You'll have to show me where I can get one of those cilices, I think I may need one."

OOC: in case what Theremin is experiencing is a charm effect, here is a second wis save since he is a half elf: 7 - darn! ;-)


Theremin gathers his things, and waits for Crimsyn to get out. "Lets see if this Ulfgar Balderk gentlemen will listen to us" he tells her, as he walks out to see the village

OOC: Unfortunately, it isn’t a charm effect.


Crimsyn returned Theremin’s smile and kissed him. “I have extra cilices, if you want one,” she offered him, her long red hair cascading over her naked breasts as she sat up and dug into her pack. She tied one of the leather bands with the sharp metal spikes onto Theremin’s arm so the spikes poked painfully into his flesh. The pain provided an anchoring focus, but did little to really alleviate his dread.

(tags Theremin)


Coriana awakened that morning staring at the ceiling of her hut, wondering just why she should bother to get up.

Coriana is afflicted with Apathy. The character has disadvantage on death saving throws and on Dexterity checks for initiative, and gains the following flaw: “I don’t believe I can make a difference to anyone or anything.”

OOC: Still need Wisdom saves from Owyn and Mindra.

Theremin takes Crimsyn's hand, kisses it and says "Thank you, this helps, not as much as was hoping for, but it does help. I'm affraid that this place is going to get me to my grave!"

We that, he awaits his companions for the meeting.

The party was led to another home in the center of the village. It was dark inside, though no one much cared, though when Owyn was stumbling about, someone lit a lamp to reveal a long room. The rear of the room appeared to be a living area, with a bed and a fire pit for warming in the center of the building. In front of the fire seemed to be a sort of meeting area, with hewn logs covered in some kind of leather for seating small groups of people. In a chair by the fire sat an elderly dwarf, his beard gone gray, his blue eyes watery. Like Salor the elf in the other village, he seemed prematurely aged for his species. In the corner, flickering in the firelight, stood a suit of silvery plate armor with the symbols of the god Paladine adorning it. The dwarf wore a silver holy symbol of Paladine, and rested his hand on the pommel of a silver warhammer at his side.

“So they tell me that our sworn enemies have come to our camp,” the dwarf spoke, his voice raspy, but strong. “What brings you waltzing into the jaws of justice?”

OOC: Still need Wisdom saves from Owyn and Mindra.

Owyn had had some nightmares, but he'd experienced worse in his life and he'd been able to generally sleep through it. The darkness in the home was an inconvenience for him, but he did his best to follow behind somebody who could actually see where they were going. Once they'd been introduced to the dwarf, he stood to attention and saluted.

"Sir, I am sworn to the Imperial throne. While I'm no diplomat, I can bring you the news that the war you and your people have been fighting all this time has ended."

Sorry about the wait, I'm trying to get back into the swing of things now that normalcy is on the horizon.

The old dwarven paladin peered at Owyn in the dim light, leaning forward. “The war is over, you say?” he asked. “We won? We defeated those god-killing devil worshippers and those rat bastard republicans?” he said eagerly. “Is this why I have felt the return of Paladine’s power these last years?”

Theremin jumps into the conversation "Yes sir, the war has been over for many years. I can sing many a song that tells the various stories, from all sides. As outsiders, we came across the village on the other side of the forest, and when we saw you were still fighting, we knew we needed to let you know that the war was over to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. Will you allow me to sing you the songs of that time?"

Theremin waits and hopes for a yes. If the Dwarf agreed, he will proceed until told to stop.

Mindra takes advantage of the time to rest, entering a trance for 4 hours and rejuvenating her mind and body. While the others still slept she thoroughly explored their accommodations trying to find any place she can observe things going on outside or places that can be used to hide or ambush inside. She also takes note of any valuables she comes across, although she doesn't expect to find much.

In the morning she joins the others to the audience with the village leader. Once again she leaves the talking to others for now, but she tries to remain alert to detect signs of deceit or threats.

OOC: Sorry for my absence as well. Have some ongoing family issues, but I should be back more regularly now.
Wisdom save: 1D20+4 = [20]+4 = 24
Perception and Investigation to scout the place: 1D20+8 = [6]+8 = 14
1D20+3 = [5]+3 = 8

Insight to listen to the elder: 1D20+6 = [3]+6 = 9
Huh. Amazing save, but you couldn't tell it from her other rolls. Despite managing to stave off the creeping dread for now, Mindra still finds herself distracted and unable to focus.

The old dwarf paladin stroked his white beard as Theremin spoke. “Long has it been since we had song to brighten these lands,” Ulfgar said. “Little of joy is there to sing here.” His eyes showed the weariness that living in the Shadowfell pressed into him. His tired gaze settled on Mindra. “And where be ye from, elf lass?” he asked. “Sing your song, bard,” he urged Theremin.
