The Slaying Stone

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

The Twisting Halls
A Crawl to start

Our heroes traveled into the goblins lair, being led by an Avenger that was traveling with Traevus when the goblins attacked his wagon and stole his box.

The Heroes making it to the cave were not expecting shrines to deities like Bahamut and Moradin with minotaur motifs nor the white dragon. They successfully negotiated with the dragon as he did not appreciate Malareth presence, feeling that the necromancer was getting ideas of being stronger than the dragon’s self. For doing the dragon the “favor” of removing Malareth, he rewarded them with a piece of armor, Darkleaf Leather armor specifically.

The heroes managed to defeat Malareth’s goblin minions and human guards, finally confronting the necromancer in his lab, defeating him and his undead with ease. The human guard, Jixin, had surrendered before the confrontation giving the party a healing potion and managed t escape.

Now all that is left is to return the box to Traevus… if they are willing too…

After the Twisting Halls
Perhaps there wass more?

A faded sun shines over the city, it appears to be grand, temples line the streets.

A man is seen walking by, past the symbol of the Hooded Lantern. He grimaces for but a moment before going into what appears to be a back ally. Going down it’s winding path he comes to a more dilapidated building. Knocking on the doors a slot comes opens and he is let in.

“Ah Attolli! Glad you could make it!” one man says. Attolli responds “Why must we hide here, past them, Milan?”

“Oh that?” the other man responds, “Well I find it best to have a distraction for those who are pursuing us and what better than a possible heresy in their faith?”

“I see…. I think” Attolli responds back. Another knock on the door, followed by a female voice, “Let me in.”

Milan moves to the door, opening the slot, opening it he is excited, Jixin! So did you get it?"

“Yeah, yeah, I got it. Won’t believe how much trouble I had to go through to get it though.” Handing Milan a book while saying.

“Excellent! With this we can begin the Conjunction!”

Dave's End and Karl's vision
Of things to come? Or that have happened?

Dave last memory was of laughing, boasting about the luck of his companion Leif Carrot before being swarmed by things of feather and beak in a dank cave, held by Bullywugs.

Darkness comes over him floating like as if on water, memories fading of who he is, what he was… everything gone… Dying a second time does that to one, he guesses now forgetting his own name..

Suddenly visions sweep before him, of a circle made of Iron shattering before him into pieces, of a skull masked man handing an eager young half-elf a map of some kind, a tooth falling into a field, the sun getting darker before blacking out…

He hears a woman’s voice, “These things must not happen, the world and reality itself might shatter and break if these come to pass, go my champion!”

Suddenly standing, seeing a tunnel of light the sound of combat on the other side, looking down he sees two Karl’s, ancient coins from another age, another time. He wonders how old he is? Or what his name is? But he does know how to escape, how to get back. Throwing the coins towards the light it open portal so that he could escape, coming back in a dank cave where a band of heroes where fighting bullywugs…

When pressed and asked for a name, he introduced himself as Karl, the only thing he could remember at the time, besides those visions of course….

The Fate of Gardmore Abbey
New clothes anyone?

A man wearing a skull mask moves in the bustling city.. no one seems to pay him attention as the people move about, loading ships, hawking wares… the city is dingy but alive in a place filled with darkness the weak sun casting down trying to pierce the clouds above the city. Moving to a warehouse, he knocks and is allowed entry.

In a gravelly voice, “I delivered that note about where the rod is Milan, but if we needed it you know I could have easily gotten it.”

Milan responds, “And I told you I believe it was three or four times that we don’t need the rod, at least we don’t have the time to deal with that which awakens from the rod’s absence, besides if you have the urge to acquire items so much here.” He passes him a piece of paper that seems to have drawings of a set of leather armor, complete with cape and weapons.

The man in the skull mask looks at it, “If you needed a new set of clothes I know this guy, names Toothle-”

Milan interupts, “I do not need a new set of clothes! That is the regalia of Arak, Erlking, and we will need it less all of our efforts will be worthless. We need that outfit as you call it to make it work.”

Man in the skull mask says “Alright, alright… so any ideas where to start gathering this stuff?”

Milan responds, “Well the crown is lost between planes and is actually not needed, but I do know the location of the boots, in the possession of an Eladrin paladin at Gardmore Abbey.”

Man in the skull mask, “An abbey eh? I’m going to need some help on this one.”

The Fate of Gardmore Abbey pt. 2
The Revengence

He Who Walks In Shadows waits outside in the rain, outside a palatial estate… he knocked on the door but when the servant saw him… he well ran away.. considering that he was asking for this guys help and was….eccentric… that and he knew waiting outside would get that servant punished.. that would show him.

While waiting he marveled at the “gift” that Milan had bestowed on him… the reason why he is still putting up with him, doing legwork. Although honestly it is getting old. As he thinks to himself, “I mean sheesh not even wanting to even try going through Toothless, that’s just crazy there.” And that the gift while allowing him to feel the cold.. the rain, even tired.. it feels good to have them again… but it’s not complete “Not until we are done.” Milan say. He can still feel the darkness within him, that rage that he was barely able to overcome the first time. “Damn halfling.” He mutters to himself.

“Damn halflings indeed, Heuw, it has been a long time.” Says a man, finely dressed, wearing purple gloves. “I do apologize for my servants lack of courtesy, I assure you it will never happen again.”

“Oh”, says Huew, “didn’t see you there, so halflings been troubling you to huh?” as he walks inside.

“Oh certainly, raiding my grounds, freeing my servants all sorts of trouble. I hired a , quite Grulshaz Frostwolf a disfigured fellow but effective, so I’ll be back in operation in a week or two." The man says while walking down the hall leading to a meeting room.

Shutting the doors, Huew says, “You know why I’m here Simon, I need your help.. got a job to find some articles of clothing. Client says they’re full of power or something like that. Anyways there this guy at Gardmore abbey, elf or eladrin or something has it or part of it at least.”

“A quest? Stealing artifacts from those lowly elves? Well I guess if what you say is true than it’s powers should be put in the proper hands, our hands.” Simon then summons a servant bearing his rapier, “Well then shall we? And please tell me you at least know the location of this abbey.. the circle in my home is not some cheap toy you know.” Huew looks at Simon =oddly, “What? Oh sure whatever.” Leading Huew to a area under the estate he can see why, it seems to be a tree growing into an archway meticulously maintained and growing even though it shouldn’t be.. this far underground anyways.

Huew asks, “How did you?”

“Oh this,” Simon responds, “I found my servants were ferrying extra food and supplies through here. They begged for forgiveness when I found them but I was a merciful man I only decimated them and kept the rest here under close watch to manage this gateway for my benefit. Works amazingly well if you know where you want to go. So do we.” Huew pulls out a map of the Abbey, “Got this map, ol’ Toothless really knows how to pull through.”

“Excellent! Well then shall we?” Simon points to the open archway.

They go through. What they come to is a chaotic scene. The Abbey seems to be under attack…

“What the!” Huew says nearly being hit by a flying boulder, as if being thrown by something large. Seeing savage humanoids tearing apart abbey defenders. “Sigh… we’ll have to find this elf guy quick then.” Says Huew. “Agreed” says Simon, “So usual tactic then, like old times then?”

“Yeah that should work” Huew says, thankful that whatever is attacking the abbey hasn’t noticed them yet….

Cairn of The Winter King pt 1
A perilous journey

Our Heroes after rescuing Baron Harken of the Harkenwold region of the Nentir Vale headed back to Fallcrest both to get payed and to follow-up on potential Iron Circle by a named mentioned in a letter, one Armos Koth.

While traveling back to Fallcrest. our heroes noticed that the weather was getting colder, than snow
… fields and farms abandoned. Upon entering Fallcrest they noticed a group of villagers aguing over what to do. Looking to find payment for their work in breaking The Iron Circle they found the merchants shop, but it looked like it hadn’t been used in years but a letter for Silindë Linwëlen was there, thanking him for his work.

While trying to figure out what had happened, a storm grew over Fallcrest and a ship bearing an undead crew came out of the skies. Defending the villagers from the attack, they found that the ship could talk, demanding the return of the Ice Scepter of the Winter King. Working and agreement with Lord Warden Markleford they were to retrieve and return the rod in exchange for ownership and repair of the abandon shop. Once the agreement was set, finding the rod proved easy as it was in the hands of Ran Lancet, who after being confronted quickly gave up and desperate to make thing right begged our heroes for a chance to set things right. Letting her join, they boarded the ship.

The journey to the Cairn was fraught with peril, from biting winds and snow, to hail and storm… but our heroes managed to survive and the ship managed to safely arrive to the Cairn of the Winter King. Upon landing, Ran started to believe that perhaps she had not escaped the Cairn, that perhaps she was already dead… our heroes enter the Cairn…
