Session 39
Unturion the Butcher

The group makes their way out of the cyrpt and rejoins Corwin and his paladins to make final preperations to draw the dragons out using the Orb of Dragonkind. Kalenthor attempts to attune to the Orb of Dragonkind, but is instead charmed by the wonderous item. It fails, however, to suggest to him to destroy the bloodline of Freas.

With the Orb handled, Kalenthor casts a ritual of Contact Another Plane where he reaches out to an ancient Sage. He, however, botches the ritual and drives himself insane by peering too deeply into the Planes. He settles down on the ground and begins speaking jibberish. Cage decides to nutmeg the casting of the ritual.

Kalenthor attunes to the Orb of Dragonkind without being charmed. Cage then explains to the group that the ritual to Contact Another Plane drove Kalenthor insane. They decide to wait until the next day before casting the ritual.

The next day, Kalenthor casts Contact Another Plane (again) with insight from his natural divinity skills. Are there any evil dragons within 300 miles of Turmish besides Anaglathos and his brood? No. Do more than one of Anaglathos brood survived? No. Does the dragon that recently attacked the city serve/support Anaglathos? Yes. Is Anaglathos coming to the city? Yes. How many days will it take him and whatever forces he has to arrive? Eight.

The group goes to see Corwin and informs him that Anaglathos will arrive in eight days. The city goes into defensive actions and prepares the city for the worst. Meanwhile, the plan is to ride out of town and draw the dragon to them and keep the city safe.

Kalenthor casts Contact Another Plane again. Is the Orb of Dragonkind also the phylactery of Unther the Vile? No. Is the phylactery still in the crypts of the city? Yes. How many days will it take him to reform a body? Eight. How many feet from his throne room is the phylactery located? Eighty. Which direction from the throne is the phylactery? Southwest.

The group decides to venture into the crypt one more time to destroy the phylactery permenatly so he doesn’t show up on the same as Anaglathos. They decide to delve back in and get it done right away.

The group heads to the cathedral and back into the crypt. From there, they head to the last unexplored area opposite of the mural room. This new room also contains a mural of a man dressed in extravagant armor and bares a passing resemblence to Unther. Laying upon a slab of stone is a figure in armor with a gem embedden in the breastplate.

Kalenthor recalls that Unther had a brother named Unturion the Bold who was a righteous paladin in the name of Helm. He was a virtious paladin who worked tirelessly to help people. When his brother turned evil due to necromancy, Unturion went to try and stop his brother. Instead, Unturion couldn’t stop or kill his brother and instead was corrupted and became a Death Knight. He then served as his brother’s servant and became known as Unturion the Butcher.

Knowing this information, the group theorizies that Unturion could be saved by destroying Unther’s phylactery that he holds. If that can happen, then he can find peace and Unther can be stopped completely. They go and talk to Corwin and he agrees that they should try and turn Unturion back to the ways of good.

The group rests for the day and then heads down with Corwin and his group of Helm paladins. When they approach, Unturion awakes and stands. Kalenthor casts Wall of Force and then says they are there to parlay. Unturion tells the group to speak. Cage then says that they want him to find redemption by righting the wrong of his brother by destroying the phylactery. After a lot of back and forth of trying to convince Unturion to find redemption in destroying his brother for good, he finally sees reason and destroys the phylactery.

Session 38
Unther the Vile

The group takes a short rest before proceeding further into the Crypt of Unther the Vile. They turn left and then head through a door that leads into a large room with many sarcophagus and alcoves with skeletal remains. Cage takes the lead as he senses undead in the room and goes to seak it out.

When he reaches the center of the room, a shadow creature dressed like a knight jumps out of the shadows and attacks, hitting Cage (13) and (13).

Round 1

The shadow evaporates and the group is left on their own. The group takes a short rest while Ruby searches over the room. They find 50pp. They then press forward into the next room. Within the next room they find a large throne-like room that is a burial chamber. Within the room is Unther the Vile in the form of a lich.

The group has a conversation with Unther, who wishes to leave the crypt, but can’t due to an arcane barrier that imprisons him. He is willing to trade an item of power that the dragon seeks in exchange for lowering the barrier. Kalenthor considers the offer while Cage says he can’t do it due to his oath. Laren reminds the group that letting the lich out could effect the timeline. When asked what the dragons are after, Unther explains that he has an Orb of Dragonkind. Kalenthor counters to say he wants to put Unther in a sphere that protects him from the town while they bring the dragons to the town. Unther would then use the Orb to tame the dragon and then allow the defenders to kill the dragons. Once the dragons are defeated, Unther would then be allowed to leave unharmed. Unther agrees, believing that even if the group betrays him, he can defeat the group and flee.

The group leaves the crypt and heads back top side. They meet with Freas. They tell him about the possible deal and Corwin voices his displeasure with the idea. They then take a long rest. While they rest, they decide to just go ahead and attack Unther and take the Orb as it is the broader safe action to take.

The group returns to the crypt the next day and meets with Unther. Kalthenor gets his signature on the necromancy book before they head back to the entrance where he points out that the pillars are the barrier. Kalenthor goes about trying to “figure out” the barrier while Cage goes to begin the attack with his pick 2nd level smite (37).

Crypt Crawling

Session 37
Crypt Crawling

After leaving the meeting with Captain Ellerton, the group retires back to the local inn to rest up. They then meet with Sir Corwin Freas and learn that the dragon Anaglathos is slipping into the grips of Dragon Rage and has been using its minions to attack the town. The dragon needs to be put down to save the region. The lair is NW from the city, about 300 miles away. The lair holds the Cult of Anaglathos and may have been where the young blue dragon retreated to for healing. When asked what Freas could do to help deal with the cult, he offered the use of his paladin knights which number 30. He could also get mercenaries, but will need a couple days. The group agrees that will help and settles down to make detailed plans on how to travel to the lair.

When asked why the dragon is attacking and what drove the dragon to slumber 200 years ago, Freas recalls a story of how a wizard named Unther, who was a necromancer, enslaved the city for a time, but was later overthrown during a revolution. He was driven into his underground vault and slain. The vault has been sealed ever since. The group decides to investigate the vault while Freas goes to hire mercenaries.

The group presses forward and heads into the underground vault of Unther the Vile. They go to the Cathedral of Eternal Life and head inside. Within the Cathedral is the entrance to the Crypt of Unther the Vile. The group heads into the crypt. The travel down stairs into the Pontifical Chapel. There are six columns in the middle of the room carved with spirits rising up in a spiral pattern that to Kalenthor seems to denote necromancy. Jord them goes to move the bones littering the room, which then activates the skeletal giant guardian.

Once the group defeats the skeleton, they take a short rest before continuing down the hallway. They comes to a door on the left and right along with a painted mural next to each door depicting Unther the Vile in all of his glory. They go through the left door. Kalenthor grabs some necromancy tomes found in the Chapel of Relics. He then goes to investigate the mural, which is a Symbol glyph. He sees the image change from a human to a skeleton and flees (failed Wisdom save). Jord goes to help the fleeing Kalenthor while Floki goes to get the dropped staff. The Symbol glyph then activates ago and a beam of necrotic energy hits Floki in the chest (60). Floki then throws a hand axe at the mural (7), which shatters the glass, but the mural remains. The mural of Unther then begins to move.

Session 36
Dragon Raid

The group goes back to Lily, who they left outside of the city. They ask her if she wants to go to her relatives in the city still. She says yes and so Kalenthor escorts her into the city and drops her off with her aunt along with her family’s fortune.

Kalenthor then returns to the group and they travel to Turmish in the year 1247, Year of the Purple Basilisk.

The group arrives just outside of the city while it is in the middle of a dragon raid. As they watch in awe, one of the dragon’s is suddenly sliced into four pieces by an unknown blade.

While keeping the second dragon trapped in the Wall of Force, the group heads into the city and looks for someone in charge.

With only a minute to spare, everything is set up and then dimension doors above the dragon with Jord and then door’s back to the ground. Kalenthor drops the Wall. The ballista fire (and Ruby fires one herself), hitting the dragon solid in the body. (9+11+19+15=54+31=85+7=92). Jord falls off and plummets to the ground (61).

The young captain, Nel Ellerton, thanks the group for their assistance. Kalenthor tells the captain that they are looking for Freas. He tells the group he is helping the city and he will get word that they wish a meeting. In the meantime, they are welcome to stay at an inn free of charge and if there is anything they can do to help out, it would be greatly appreciated.

Garden District and the tree near the Golden Bucket Inn, they find a Time Guardian standing over a dead Sarrukh. The Time Guardian takes the Time Tear and

attempts to open a portal to the Temporal Plane, but is blocked by a dampening spell placed by the Sarrukh. Laren tries to explain why the Time Tear is

hidden as the Time Guardian says it belongs to the God of Time. Ruby accusses Laren of stealing the Time Tears to begin with.

So Laren now needs to recover the Time Tears to empower Kurstan, but use the time locations to depower Lloth. The group agrees to continue with the mission.

Laren continues and states that the next location is in 1247, the Year of the Purple Basilisk. There Laren left the Time Tear with Corwin Freas, a Paladin of Torm.

Walking with Fishes

The group presses on to Baldur’s Gate. Upon arriving at the Westland Gate four days later, they are forced to navigate a city that is current in the midst of a riot as well as being invaded by the forces of Amn. The army (numbering approx. 10,000 foot soldiers plus siege engines) is currently focusing their efforts at the northern gate. The city is defending with archers.

The group decides to leave Lily and the Shield Guardian behind and away from the army. First the group must determine how to enter the city. The Riverside Slums cover the west and southwest side of the city, but that portion of the city is currently in revolt against the Elven Hunters.

The group decides to use the Chionthar River to enter the city. Kalenthor casts Water Breathing on the group and they enter the water upstream just past the Amn army. While traveling along the bottom of the river, the group is attacked by a giant shark.
