The World of Temmuren

Horsin' around 2
Nayver Again
  • Group dispatched the remaining centaur, then cornered the last one
  • In a still heated encounter, the centaur dove for its commander’s pack and was felled before it could get to it
  • In the bags the group found communications from gnolls telling the centaurs to expect the supply caravan and to attack them
  • The group treated the horses are rode high into camp to make their deliver (passing a familiar homestead along the way)
  • At the mine, they discovered a beleaguered military force, besieged by goblinoids, overstretched, and undersupplied
  • The group agreed to escort the same caravan back to Pioneer Outpost with the first shipment of Arcanite back from the mines in quite some time
  • The group negotiated a stop at the nearby homestead as part of a ‘safe route’ back and prepared to depart
Horsin' around
No horse-butts about it

[Placeholder] – Met the new folks, reported back on Golden Bluff and got paid 450 platinum, heard about some new missions, started escorting a caravan, tried to head through the woods, and ran into a centaur ambush (still in progress).

A Rat's Tail
Tasings & truths
  • Received another message from Prima: “Okay, so I just talk into—at this? (YES, JUST TALK) Oh, uh, sorry 14 um, well we were fighting witches just now, well hags—”
  • The group came to an agreement with the turned wererats to offer them asylum in Freehold at the ‘Hard Rock Cafe’ (Winona & Takota’s tavern)
  • The group interrogated the leader, getting some information, but unable to learn the identity of their leader
  • Chrys had an episode, nearly killing the wererat, tasing Granite, & being bit by Granite in bear-form
  • Granite then spent a lengthy time talking to the prisoner (and having a flashback), before the group ultimately decided to execute him; first by acid, then finished with a sword by Granite to avoid him ultimately dying by human(ish) hands.
  • The group made their way back to Freehold, spotting a group of Gnolls from overhead on the way
  • Winona & Takota agreed to take in the wererats as workers and they all began uneasily getting settled
  • The group returned to Pioneer Outpost and the guild to debrief and determine their next plan of action
  • The group leveled to 7!
Hag House Party
Child abduction, T-rexes, and flood insurance
  • The group followed Tora’s entourage eastward until catching up with Pavillio “Harbinger of the Storm” east of the city.
  • Eventually the group realized the Queen was being led back to the annis hag’s territory
  • Having drawn back, the group made their way through a swamp to a large structure
  • As they approached, a large, creature pocked with iron growths emerged and ushered them towards the structure, holding something behind its back
  • Oliver subjected it to a Suggestion spell and caused it to emerge from the house with a child in tow
  • A pitched battle ensued, during which Tora blasted an exit out the back and fled with the children
  • Thursday,, Mubaj, and Barry covered her retreat, while Oliver, Rhuul, and Pav besieged the hag’s hut from the front and above with spells, tooth, and flash flooding
  • Enraged at the discovery of the escaped children the annis hag turned into a T-rex and chased the children and their saviors into the swamp
  • Meanwhile Oliver and Pav cornered the night hag inside the hut, and Rhuul, her snake, and some pixies dealt with the sea hag and assaulted the T-rex with spells
  • Pav and Oliver’s assault on the night hag finally ended the magic rendering the annis hag a T-rex as it was nashing on Thursday, but not before her final act of resistance rendered her unconcious
  • The annis hag approached the children, threatening Thursday’s life and demanding their return
  • Barry and Tora stood resolute, unwilling to give up the children, nor to let Thursday simply die
  • In a blinding flash of fire Thursday was revived and in that moment Barry, Tora, and she unleashed a barrage of attacks that felled the annis
  • Meanwhile the night hag escaped through a wall and finally eluded Pav, Oliver, Rhuul, and a horde of dust mephits by escaping to the ethereal plane
  • The group began searching the hut, mending their wounds, and seeing to the children, but when they caught sight of the night hag attempting to revive the annis hag, they made short work of it, finally ending the threat of all of the hags
  • They then set off west to return the children safely to the city
  • The Group leveled up to 8!
Moonlit Inquisition
In the name of the moon, I shall punish you
  • Rallied a crowd of the townfolk
  • Recovered the Face of Night (magic cowl)
  • Attempted to force wererats to expose themselves to the villagers
  • The group made a heartfelt musical appeal to the wererat leader and his pack
  • Gregory’s group was eager to punish the accused
  • Granite exposed the wererats with moonbeam
  • Gregory and several of his group demanded an execution and discussion escalated
  • The group placed themselves in harm’s way to protect the wererats
  • The town (starting with a stone-throwing child) backed them up
  • Gregory and several others left, resentful towards the group and the town
  • The group separated the wererats and discussed exemption with other two away from their leader
  • These wererats caved immediately, informing the group they were farm-hands here in town who were turned and coerced into working with the original wererat for fear of being found out and killed or killed by him.
Fantasy Loot Dispenser

The following items were wrested from the rusty chest taken from the shipwreck off the sacred isle:

More yet rests in the chest (you can hear it, like a present!)

Rat Stew
"I taste hairs and I know things..."
  • Got the townfolk to clear out the silo
  • Found some suspicious hair near an opened chute in the silo (silo is likely emptied)
  • Chrys determines the hair to be of wererat origin
  • The group hatches an elaborate plan to flush out the saboteurs
  • Wererats and rat swarms attack in the night, stealing the Face of Night
  • The group dispatches the rat swarms and captures all 3 wererats (now in human form)
Prone on the Ceiling
  • The group attacked the Oni, liberating their hostages immediately and swiftly felled the two Oni, permitting neither to escape (and destroyed Tora’s chambers in short order).
  • Pav is tailing the Queen and her entorage
  • NJ owes the group a chest full of (rolled) treasure
Golden Bluff

  • Edwin – GB PI
Sister Thursday's Journal: Liberty at Last
The group returns from sea to a recouping capitol

From the hand of a Sister Thursday Twenty-Fifth,

“There’s a sound of a lake alongside the heavy footfalls you’d figure for an Allosaurus running on water. There’s no sounds of birds. Devastated by a surprise winter before any ancient migration told them thought to flee south. The sun beats down on their bloated, duped bodies dotting the channel.

“—So you can just record whatever you like?”
“Yeah, right now. I’m recording right now.”
“That’s fucked up.”
“…I-I’m sorry? I can turn it off if you like.”
“You said this thing makes pictures, right?”
“I mean, it can. I don’t have that quite figured out just yet -”
Why not
“I mean, I could have it going I just don’t quite get it
You’re a scholar, why can’t you figure it out
“Th-there’s, uh, see there was a schizm in common draconic runes and meanings in the last half of the 9th -”
What are you, stupid? You researched this
“I c-could have gotten this but I don’t have any of my reference books right n-”
Prove to them that this is hard or they’ll think you’re an idiot too
“See how the t-how the characters are sometimes straight and sometimes have these spiraling serifs? It’s, uh, it’s -
it’S HARD”

“Oh god damn it, it’s still recording. Uh, well so we just left the island — The Isle of Carter - and we now have the Spade of the Earth in hand. I’ve given it over to Rhuul who you can see if I- oh shit the video isn’t on. Right. Well, she’s pulling our boat right now in dinosaur form”
Indistinct Dinosaur Sounds Happen
“She is asking me to state how, uh, quoting Rhuul here; How fucking awesome this is, y’all.”
Dinosaur Noises
“I am not repeating that.”
Dinosaur NOISES
“Because I’m a scribe and this is all already extremely unprofessional.”
The Keepers don’t record histories written hertics and abominations.
“We’re headed back to Induin Tawar after trying to hunt the Night Hag that had attacked us earlier today. We’re hoping we can rush to the World Tree and restore it before the Hag can harm the Queen, long may She reign.
There aren’t any definite paths right now. We don’t have a guarantee that this will work or that we can get it done in time, but we have to try something. At the very least, as soon as we get in town we’re going to check in and see how the Queen is doing. I have all my fingers crossed that she’ll be fine. We’ve really exhausted our other options to protect Her other than resealing the Fae.
This has been Sister Thursday Twenty-Fifth… uh, Day 237. Fourth Week of Eighth Month”

Additional notes that don’t work in fiction:
- We had just walked in on two Oni holding the Queen’s retainers hostage
- Pav was invisible and tailing the Queen
- Rhuul was going out of her way to make the elven soldiers feel uncomfortable
- There was evidence that the Queen had been healed via Greater Restoration ritual.
