A long, deep, gutteral wolf cry breaks through the silence. You think you see movement in the trees ahead.
Geilded: "Always two pieces to a key… who splits a key in only two pieces? Why not thr—… oh."\
Aldous Trench prepares his shield and pick.
Maelwys: It could be seven.
Geilded: "Don’t be absurd. Then someone would write a story about it. Hardly secret."
Maelwys: I heard this one about a rod once…
Maelwys looks around.
Geilded slinks on ahead, still looking tired but in a better mood, all things considered.
Elandra hearing the wolf cry, but keeps heading in the direction she is being pulled toward
Araylia continues to follow the others. Her eyes scan the area for the wolf who howled.
Geilded readies his sword and moves along more or less with Elandra, sticking to trees where he could.
DM: The fog seems to thicken the further south you go.
Aldous Trench follows Elandra.
DM: Elandra and Aldous, Perception checks.
Araylia follows Elandra.
DM: Your senses are dulled…even dark vision is obscurred. Something is very unnatural about this fog.
DM: You can see enough not to stumble around, but you can’t see very far ahead.
Geilded , if able to see the others still, moved up a bit to be in line with them.
DM: The scent of decay seems to waft with the fog, embracing you and drawing you onward.
Geilded let out a low, disagreeing sound.
DM: You can see what appears to be a camp now…and two figures lying on the ground.
Geilded: "Dead ahead… questionable freshness."
Maelwys: Dead….ahead…adequately described.
Geilded: "Nothing of the freshness? At least humor me."
Geilded approached the camp warily.
Araylia: If we humored you as much as you liked, we’d never get anything done.
Maelwys: Its in my nose..I’m at a loss for humor.
Araylia moves to examine the dead next to the campfire.
DM: The brush all around you seems to explode as especially angry appearing worgs leap toward you!

Attack 20 -> [at Werewolf] [HIT]
Damage 19 -> [to Werewolf] [CRITICAL]
Geilded: "Leave her be, Wolf-boy… Com’ere."

Attack 17 -> [at Worg 1] [HIT]
Damage 6 -> [to Worg 1]
[TURN] Geilded
DM: Flame laps at the worg, causing the beast to roar in anger, then it focuses once more on Aldous. It turns its attention toward where the werewolf was…then all fight seems to leave the beast.
Geilded turns to the poor Worg being jumped all over and raises his shield towards it. The insignia scratched into it’s surface lit up white with his spell.
Damage 5 -> [to Worg 1] [DYING]
DM: The worg drops. Whatever it was trying to tell you…will never be known.
Geilded: "Everyone in one piece?"
Maelwys cleans and sheathes his blades, then dusts off his hands.
Aldous Trench: I’m fine.
Geilded moves up to search the tent the werewolf came from.
Araylia: Maelwys?
Maelwys: I will survive, save your magic.
Araylia nods to her companion.
Elandra pulls out a cloth and presses it to her side. Slowly she looks around for where the voice came from
Maelwys moves toward the corpse of the werewolf and draws his hand lightly over it, drawing out life force.
Maelwys: [HEAL] Dark One’s Blessing [MOD: CHA] [TEMP] 8
Temporary hit points 8 -> [to Maelwys]
DM: There’s little of value in the tent. Two shredded sleep mats, some clothing…very old clothing. Refuse and animal bones.
Geilded steps out and looks around at the bodies; blade in hand, he looks down at the werewolf.
Geilded: "What can we say of those?"
Geilded: "Anyone know much about them?"
DM: The werewolf and worgs suddenly disintegrate.
Maelwys: We can say…goodbye?
Geilded: "…Close enough."
Maelwys: Did anyone get bit?
Geilded: "I think Elandra got scraped, didn’t look like a bite."
Maelwys nods slightly. "Lycanthropy. Scholars call it a disease, but it is truly a curse…and it is transferred in through a werewolf’s bite."
Geilded: "Right… well then we should watch the teeth."
Elandra glances back at the others then moves ahead some.
Araylia moves towards Elandra.
Geilded paces for a moment before moving up to the corner of the building nearby.
DM: Elandra, you are blocked by the living trees from traveling much further that direction.
Maelwys: How about that key?
Aldous Trench searches the corpses around the fire.
Geilded: "A good question."
DM: The corpses literally begin to fall apart when you try to search them Aldous. They have nothing of value.
Elandra mutters and begins to return to the others. "lets get this done and out of here."
Geilded turns and runs the tip of his sword lightly along the wall of the building as he moves around it.
Aldous Trench: This is… disgusting.
Geilded: "Should check houses…" To no one in particular
Geilded looks either way, then back towards the party.
Maelwys: That it is…
Geilded turns and walks up to the door. Talking lowly to some unseen person.
Geilded: "What do you know about this town? You knew about the Gold."
Araylia moves after the others.
Maelwys: Who is he talking to this time?
Elandra: Himself
Araylia: One never knows.
DM: Unlike many of the ruined buildings, this particular house is in good shape. The doors appear to have been recently replaced…or they’ve withstood time very well.
Geilded falls quiet and puts his ear lightly against the door, looking like he might speak again but just stands with his mouth ajar.
DM: Go ahead.
DM: You don’t hear anything.
Geilded tries to open the door.
DM: Oddly enough, the door is locked.
Araylia: Try knocking.
Geilded tilts his head a little and makes a ‘huh’ sound. He looked to Araylia, almost laughing before he does, in fact, knock.
Irondrake: looks at Araylia.
Maelwys looks at Araylia.
Maelwys: Tell him to dance and stand on his head.
Araylia chuckles.
Geilded: "I suppose it’s not a bad idea given that we know there are ambient spirits that can manipulate things…"
DM: No one answers your knock.
DM: Yes, it does.
Geilded turns to kick the door open… or down. Whichever.
DM: Ok, make a Strength Check.
Araylia tries not to laugh at Geilded.
DM: You’ve jarred your leg…and the door does not open.
Maelwys smiles.
Maelwys: Do it again.
Aldous Trench chuckles
Geilded lets out a huffy sound.
Araylia: Just once more.
Araylia winks at Geilded.
Elandra: I missed it
Aldous Trench: I wish there was a way to record this and then watch it over and over.
Maelwys: Wait…I think there is…
Maelwys: Prestigitation…you know that spell Elandra?
Araylia: Perhaps someone else could manage to kick in a wooden door?
Maelwys: Ghost Image….might…do it
Araylia moves towards the building and leans against it.
Geilded hums thoughtfully to himself before looking his sword over.
Geilded: "Well, I suppose if you don’t break… why not?"
Aldous Trench: May I give you instruction on kicking in a door?
Elandra: I can always do it.
Maelwys: We want the house to remain…
Elandra: Well…
DM: The house is made of stone.
Geilded: "You could always burn the door down."
DM: Doors are made of wood, thick oak.
Maelwys: Its time’s like these that I miss our thief…
Araylia gets impatient and decides to circle the building to try to find another door.
Geilded: "Didn’t happen to keep a hold of his lockpicks, huh?"
Araylia shouts, "There’s another door over here!
Aldous Trench: I used to kick in doors a lot when I was a soldier.
Geilded moves up and around the building. Not seeming to hear Aldous, or he’s being a dick and not listening…
Maelwys: I used to use keys….
Elandra: I used to run into them in the sunlight.
Araylia: Want to try opening this one?
Maelwys just looks at Elandra.
Maelwys: I could see that.
Aldous Trench kicks in the door, concentrating his kick at the lock.
Geilded: "You could."
Geilded smiles.
Araylia smiles and tries the handle.
DM: A bit rattled…that’s one stout door…
DM: The door opens, Araylia.
Aldous Trench: It really is…
Araylia pushes the door open.
Araylia gives Geilded a smile.
Geilded turns and laughs a bit before following after Araylia.
Aldous Trench: a secure door…
Araylia goes in and tries to open the other door.
Araylia unlocks it
DM: The house looks recently lived in. So recently that the hearth is still lit.
DM: there are iron bars across the other door…securing it well in place.
Araylia knocks on the door.
Geilded looks around slowly, pacing all over the room.
Araylia: Try the other door!
Araylia looks to Geilded.
DM: Geilded, something catches your eye on the desk near the bed.
Aldous Trench: Can you unlock this door from inside?
Araylia: Nope, it’s barred.
Geilded investigates the desk.
Aldous Trench: You can’t remove the bar?
Geilded employs a strict no-touching policy, having heard stories of killer books.
DM: Floor sinks down as soon as you move to the desk!
Araylia: Just go through the other door!
Geilded looks down to investigate the floor now!
DM: Suddenly a support beam on the ceiling over the bed and desk gives way!
Geilded: "Shit!"
Araylia moves towards the working door.
DM: Make a Dexterity Save, Geilded
Araylia: Dammit, Geilded!
DM: You barely make out before rocks drop down from the weakened ceiling and smash into the desk and bed.
Geilded: "…huh."
Araylia: What’d you touch this time?
Elandra: Ok, who did what?
Geilded: "I touched the floor…"
DM: In the rubble you can make out a dented steel chest.
Araylia: Well…don’t do it again.
Geilded turns and squints at Araylia, walking around the rocks a bit to try and access the chest.
Maelwys: Well sounds like someone died in there.
Maelwys: I’ll stay out here.
DM: Its not likely the ceiling can collapse twice….
Araylia shakes her head at the other guy. She moves out the door to see what happened to the others.
DM: You can dig the chest out of the debris easily enough.
DM: Its about 1′×2′×8"
Geilded fiddles with the chest a bit, looking along the edge of it for any sort of locking.
Elandra keeps her happy ass safe and outside
DM: The lock lies in pieces in the rubble.
Geilded: "Well… either the key is really big or it’s not the key."
Geilded opens it, then! Turned away from himself.
DM: you turned the chest away from you before you opened it?
DM: Ok the chest opens.
Geilded looks over the edge of the lid to root around inside the chest.
DM: You can feel coins and the wooden handle of a crossbow. There’s also a small felt bag.
Geilded turns the box around.
Geilded: "Araylia? Get Elandra please?"
Araylia: Since you said please.
Geilded grins.
Araylia: Elandra!!!
DM: Several electrum coins and quite a few gold coins cover the bottom of the chest. A hand crossbow sits atop that. The felt bag rests in the corner of the chest.
Araylia stays right where she is.
Araylia: Geilded needs you!!
Geilded walks over the table and sets the chest up on it before returning to try and dig that book out of the rubble.
Elandra: What?
Elandra: I’m sorry!
Araylia: He found treasure!
Elandra has no need for treasure but goes to see what they need. NOT going to enter the building.
Araylia: Got her for you.
Araylia moves so Elandra can peak inside.
Elandra What?
Geilded motions back towards the table with a hand, still digging in the rubble.
Geilded: "Crossbow for you… And some… whatever."
Geilded was clearly distracted.
Elandra looks into the house, and up, before stepping inside.
DM: The ceiling creeks a bit.
Elandra steps back out!
Geilded grumbles in annoyance before standing again and looking around.
Geilded: "No? Don’t want it?
Araylia: Bring it out here, Geilded.
Geilded gives a little shrug, walking up to close the chest and walk it out.
Geilded: "Coins, crossbow, and a bag of something. Didn’t look in the bag yet."
Geilded presents the chest to whoever was closest to the door.
Maelwys: No one died?
Geilded: "No… just an old house, falling apart."
Maelwys: Ah.
Geilded: "I imagine it happens a lot in this town…"
Araylia: With bars on one door.
Geilded: "Given the werewolf… good idea to have them."
Aldous Trench: I would suggest looking in the bag.
Geilded shook the chest at Elandra before going into the chest to get the bag.
Elandra grumbles and takes the chest
Araylia: On only one door?
Maelwys: Oh will you carry my bag too, Elandra?
Elandra: No
Geilded: "Don’t make too many jokes… she won’t split the gold in there with you."
Maelwys shrugs slightly.
Geilded opens the bag!
Maelwys: Why would a dragon want to split gold anyway?
DM: Inside the bag is half of a key. It would appear that key was hewn right down the spine with something extremely sharp. Its abaout 3 inches in length.
DM: Or…about…
Elandra moves off to the side and sits on the ground. Opening the pack, she dumps the contents of the chest into it. Mutters about scorching a damn warlock
Geilded: "Heeeey, a key."
Geilded pockets the key-half and continues off towards the east-ish.
Aldous Trench follows Geilded.
DM: The fog begins to fill the area once more as you head eastward.
Geilded lights Shatterspike as he moves along.
Geilded: "I’m not sure all houses will be protected like that one…. I assume it was at least. We should check them for key-pieces."
Araylia follows close to the others.
DM: The building you approach has a collapsed ceiling already. No doors are intact and the windows have long been broken out. Its quite dark inside, but you can see that the floor is overgrown.
Araylia: A test? Meaning us learning to check for a second door?
Geilded wanders into the collapsed building.
Geilded: "Perhaps not this one, Aldous…"
Aldous Trench: Okay.
DM: South of this building you can see a line of the living trees formed.
Araylia searches south (?) of the building.
Geilded: "Damned trees…."
Geilded turns and wanders East-ish(?) again.
DM: As you wander into this clearing, you can hear a clicking noise nearby.
Geilded frowns deeply.
Geilded: "With my habit of getting into danger… perhaps don’t follow directly behind me."
DM: It sounds more like an animalistic chittering.
Aldous Trench: I have a shield.
Geilded moves up to put his head down near the door infront of him again.
DM: It sounds like wood.
Geilded tries the door!
DM: The door is half-rotten and looks quite old, but it remains standing. The building has tall, broad chimney.
Geilded: "Try that next building… This one looks alright."
DM: The door opens revealing a soot-covered floor. Two iron anvils can be seen inside. A larage cold forge is against the wall.
DM: (sheesh, LARGE)
Geilded investigates the decript forge.
DM: The forge hasn’t been worked in centuries. The anvils look worn and in disrepair.
Aldous Trench keeps a lookout at the door.
Geilded mumbles softly to himself as he walks to the backdoor.
DM: Suddenly the forge lights up. The fog lifts and darkness covers the village.
Geilded: "Oh fun."
DM: Two dwarves walk inside carrying an armful of metal each.
DM: They seem to take no notice of you as they go to begin working the metal. The metal is something you do not recognize, it is a blood red in color.
Geilded tries to interact with the forge. See if it gives off heat or what he could do with it.
DM: From somewhere deeper in the village you hear screams, "Dragon! Dragon!" A thick green fog rolls through through the forest, between the buildings and through every crack to cover the interiors as well.
DM: You feel no heat, Geilded.
DM: The dwarves become dust and settle onto the ground as the darkness lifts and the usual fog returns. The forge once again appears dead and unusued.
Geilded looks back towards the door to see if anyone else saw that.
DM: The only one who could have seen anything more than the darkness and fog is Aldous.
Geilded: "…Guess I’m crazy after all."
Geilded: "Next building?"
Aldous Trench: Sure.
Geilded: "Spiders?"
Aldous Trench: Not so far.
DM: The floor, walls, and what little remains of the ceiling of the building that you can see is covered in webs.
Geilded: "Can you do that burning hands spell? Might do well to lead with that.."
Geilded: "Spidersilk may not burn like wood… but it goes a long way to clearing it."
Maelwys: Have you seen any spiders?
Geilded: "No, but I am reminded of the tomb a few weeks ago with the chittering and the webs."
Aldous Trench: I can only do that once before I need a long rest.
Aldous Trench: Plus, we might burn something we don’t want burned.
DM: You hear a muffled sound of movement inside, like something large and bound trying to slide along the ground.
Geilded frowns and looks to Elandra.
Elandra listens as they talk of burning hands and the logic of burning things we may need or want
Geilded just sighs softly and walks into the spider webby room.
DM: Along one wall you see a pile of bones. Near it you see a cocooned figure…and its moving.
Geilded promptly looks up and flinches down a little.
Maelwys: See something?
Geilded: "Unfinished meal is all right now…"
Geilded goes to open the figure! Starting at the head, of course.
Maelwys: How…unfinished?
Elandra: Ever get the idea that spiders are about to appear?
Geilded: "It’s moving still at least."
Geilded mumbles under his breath, something along the lines of ‘Fucking spiders’.
DM: Make a perception check. Everyone.
Elandra twidling her thumbs!
Maelwys looks around, but at all the wrong places.
DM: Geilded, while you’re trying to free whatever unfortunate victim is there, something drops from the open ceiling…something….large. More of them appear….and they’ve taken you all by surprise!
