Evil Alliances

Session One

Session starts with a few characters making their way towards Three Pines Ford. Inside Doraen and Content Not Found: hared meet Lupe, Eol, Micah, and Taylor the tailor. Eventually the secret tunnel entrance was found and further investigation of the door revealed that it only opened from inside the city. Guard Captain Sweeny told Micah and Eol to investigate the guard badge with dried cake batter. Doraen, Hared, and Lupe went to investigate the other end of the tunnel.

Micah was punched, branding his forehead with “Dickbutt”. Also, the orphan boy was found when players initially started investigating how the orcs got into the city. Hared gave the boy his bear mask.

Session Two

Players determined that Guard Endrin’s family was kidnapped and he was forced to let the orcs invade the town through the secret tunnel. Players helped rescue Endrin’s family from their captors. They were being held at an abandoned warehouse at the docks.

This session was also where players decided to frame Sweeny for letting the orcs into town. Micah was vocally upset about this and was given the option to be removed from the guard or go on a scouting mission to Rolsar’s Coffer. He chose to go on the scouting mission. Endrin was also privy to the framing of the now former Captain and chose to let it go and say nothing because it gets him off the hook. Hared is now the Guard Captain. This has angered a lot of townspeople and guards alike because they are all racist against orcs. A speech was given by Eol and Hared to the rest of the guard announcing Sweeny’s “betrayal” and Hared’s promotion from nobody to Guard Captain.

Players learned the details of who “The Orphaned” is and learned the location of one of the orc clan leaders. His name is Thrott and he is the weakest of the three orc clan leaders.

Players finished the session having just killed the ogre that had taken up residence at an abandoned farmhouse.

The party ventured deeper into the forest and met a teifling wizard named Kota and an elf ranger named Vadania. They battled different forest creatures (jakalwere, goblins, wolves, etc). They eventually made their way to Thrott’s military compound.

Players defeated Thrott and his camp. They “recruited” Johnson and he is currently scouting out Bazur’s camp.

Kota solved the puzzle that opened the treasure vault.

Session Five

Kota took the embroidered silk handkerchief and left to go find more animal parts. The rest of the group started to make their way back to town. They went to look for their horses (Orb and Horse) and found they had been stolen by some Gnolls. Players successfully rescued them. Orb took an arrow to the hind quarters.

Session Six

Players started off in the woods, horses freshly rescued from Gnolls. On their way back to Three Pines Ford they narrowly escaped an adult green dragon. They also saw the family of the ogre they killed. The child ogre was crying over the death of his parent, the other ogre was eating Eol’s horse. Players arrived at night and promptly took a well deserved rest after a long day of riding. The next morning, word must have gotten out that the new Captain had made it back because protesters had formed out in front of the Guard Barracks. A dragonborn named Balasar, having just arrived in town, was curious about why all the townspeople were in such an uproar. While talking players were interrupted with news of the orphan boy’s (who the Orphan Matron has started calling Bear) kidnapping. They quickly (and nonlethally) defeated Bear’s kidnappers. Later, players were asked to gather food for a feast to honor them and their accomplishments (killing Thrott, defending the town, etc). They brought back plenty of boar and fish. During the feast, the Mayor gave a speech backing Hared as Guard Captain.

Honorable Mentions

  • Frog Voltron
  • Gas-lighting Sweeny with frogs
