Blood and Magic

Into the Storm
Where they Meet New Friends and Discover Old Foes

After fleeing back to the village of Lost Tooth the remaining sorcerers stop at the inn while Inzoka (the innkeeper) gets the group some hot food and good spiced wine. A brutal blizzard locks the whole village down for a week. During this time the group has determined that you have at least the following options before you:

*Stay here in Lost Tooth and make the best of things until the weather changes and you can safely make it down the mountain paths back towards to Oak Hollow.
*Take the winding paths and roads from the village that will take you further west but eventually down out of the mountains. Doing this will get you to a trade town called Pine Branch at the base of the mountains, and on the White Pine river. Enough traffic, travelers and other civilized things come this way that the group should be able to find what they need there. Pine Branch is a bit bigger than Oak Hollow and much more cosmopolitain.
*Find you way back to the monastery to fight the evil there or to perhaps find information.
Delve again back into the Dragon Tooth mines and try to find some more adventure.

The group has had a chance to expand on their experiences of the past days and they have been able to advance their skills (you are all now 3rd level – new PCs will be 3rd as well).

What will you do next?

So It Begins
Where the Sorcerers Learn What Dwells in the Darkness

Each of the characters has received a letter inviting them to a location just outside of the town of Oak Hollow for a secret meeting where:

“Those who understand and can guide you request that you attend so that the truth of your blood, power and destiny can be made clear to you.”

How it started

At the start of winter The group meets at the designated area and they discover that Huslev, a well known shop keeper in Oak Hollow, is the one who knows about them and is trying to get them to go to the monks to the north. He informs them that there should be 9 sorcerers but some didn’t show to the meeting.

Then some Hammerites arrive as well as a raid by some Hollowed undead who cause all sorts of death and panic. Huslev somehow escapes and the group is left arguing with the local sheriff on if Wyrmrune should be burned at the stake as a witch or not and trying to puzzle out the following letter that the Hammerites had on them:

“Children of the Secret Light, it has fallen upon you to seek out Akrim in the vicintiy of Oak Hollow. He has illuded our agents in Avalon and escaped our traps in both Westgate and Hills Pass so I encourage you to act swiftly, locate Akrim and bring him to justice.

“We know that he has found the stones and perhaps even the book of the Devourer. The stones must be captured and if, Odin forbid, he has found the book you must obtain it and bring it back to us for safe keeping as well.

I await you in the vally so we may journey to Avalon together.

This is your most dangerous task. Odin will vouchsafe your return to us and may you show the worshipers of that foul god the same mercy they would show to you and your children."

—Tiliv

What Came Next

The group learned some additional information, discovered Hislev was actually some undead abomination and fled Oak Hollow heading for the monastery to the north. That travel was interrupted by a yeti ambush and then being saved by the knights of the monastery who sent a contingent of their forces to Oak Hollow while some, lead by Halath, took the group to the monastery itself.

While they they met the abbot who tried to convince them they needed to be part of some sorcerer training to fulfill their destiny. Something seemed odd and they soon found that the missing 4 sorcerers from Huslev’s meeting were already here and corrupted – the Abbot was a demon who was trying to capture and use the sorcerers for his own ends.

With the aid of Halath the group fled and made their way to the town of Lost Tooth that lay a few days travel through a dangerous mountain pass north of the monastery.

After some rest and reflection Halath arrives as promised and explains what he knows of the situation. He then grabs a dogsled and team and heads for Oak Hollow.

The group decides to head into the Dragon Tooth mines as they want to see if there really is a dragon in the mountains.

Turns out there is a gargantuan, titan of a dragon that was frozen under the ice. Two of the group (Leamyo and Wyrmrune) wake it up to ask it some questions. They are flash frozen and eaten. The rest of the group flees back to Lost Tooth.
