Grimtouched of Dar'kharrow

Killing first sergeant
Session 2

Welcome back traveller, i see you once again desires a tale about our misfit of adventures. Very well i enjoy telling it as much as you enjoy listening to it dear traveller.

As you might remember our little band of merry men and grimtouched was left with a difficult task to kill; not one, not two, but three sergeants leading assaults on unaware grimtouch leaving Falkville. Any lesser team would just have charged the camps and burned them to a crisp and for some it might even have worked! But these adventures did not bring fire power nor fleshbeasts, so they had to rely on their wits, their intuition and most of all; their magic.

Our brave adventures decided to leave Falkville as casual as grimtouchly possible. The mistress had kindly borrowed our party of ninjas and wizards two grimtouch drivers to escort them on their travels. Not long after leaving Falkville the group was ambushed by none other than the first sergeant on their list: Hilligan Ramsbottom! Alongside him was four fierce warriors ready to kill any grimtouched on the carriage. As stated early the only thing this team could do was outwit there opponents and by all that is good of Cayden Caliean they outwitted them!

The sergeants men quickly checked all of their pulses for being grimtouched. First the brilliant wizard Erast, who as we all know was human. Secondly they checked our favored ninja which also checked out sins he is capable of hiding anything! He could even hide a full plate from a rust monster, but that is an entirely different story. Third they check Eric and his wife, which both miraculously wasn’t detected. Everything seemed smooth, until the guards checked the drivers! Unlike our glorious heroes they wasn’t able to hide the truth and battle was about to break out! However being the genius that he is, erast choose to flay an explosion of colors towards the two grimtouched paralysing them! Erast had quickly decided to sacrifice the two nobodies for the greater good of the mission. Our party was invited into the camp as heroes believing they saved the sergeant.

Now our heroes was in an inconceivable promising situation, they had full access to the camp and could use their position to receive information and sneak around without being in harms way. Lucy decided to blend in and do what any mortal and immortal man would do; drink like its the The Fall of Lightgarde. Erik would accompany his beautiful wife without the drinking. Our mystery man of many faces decided to plan out how he would kill the first sergeant, every step of the way and did some reconnaissance along the way. Erast decided to use this situation to gain information about the other camps and possible an entrance available. Erast quickly received information from the southern-looking brown skinned man named Jon Mufasa, just like any brown skinned man he enjoyed chicken, watermelon and had a family tree so complex not even the gods understand it! However Erast quickly learns of a family member of his living in another of three camps named Mikkel Simba, which he actually want a letter delivered too. Erast take on the delivery job and now has an entry ticket to another camp.

Meanwhile time pass and less people starting drinking as dusk approaches, this traveller is where our tale start to get interesting, because in the darkness of the night Thanos Goto the tent of the sergeant, actually he sneaks but it was a little joke. However just like every barmaid is not guaranteed good in the hay, likewise any special ninja may have an off day, which reminds me you gotta ask me sometime about Thanos and the unjumpable tree. However a ninjas speciality is not necessarily just killing, infiltrating and cutting fruit thrown into the air, but also to evolve and adapt to situations when they do not go as planned. While the rest of the party was awaiting Thanos return to the carriage he ended up in a disagree with a random guard. However as ninjas do best, he died. Now Thanos was in a time hurry, since the body would be found relatively soon! He hurried to the tent of Hilligan Ramsbottom only to find him awaken as the alarm sounded. However Thanos Goto do not quit that easily and sways the sergeant to follow him into a more private area of the camp. You gotta ask yourself how stupid the sergeant was to follow a guy he just met the day before just when a body was found in the camp. Here in the private area Thanos tries to stab Sergeant Hilligan Ramsbottom to death, however he missed the death part and just stabbed him. Now most people would run away, but not our brave sergeant, afterall he is not very wise. Eric & Lucy bears witness to this unlike roll of a dice and decided to rush and help this poor ninja in distress. It doesn’t take long for the combined power of these three grimtouched to steal the life of the sergeant, it almost takes more time for them to actually remove the head from the rest of the body. They for some reason believed they actually had to bring back the heads.

During this little uproar three of our four heroes saw a horrendous creature they would never forget: each other. Fleeing back to the carriage with the wizard whipping the horses to their maximum our four heroes continue onward to their next head.

And this traveller is where today’s story end and tomorrows begin…

Introductions
Session 1: A New Beginning!

Come traveller, sit and listen. For I will tell you tales that go beyond comprehension. Beyond understanding. Beyond logic and reason. Delve deep into the abyss, and see what horrors it will show you.

But I am getting ahead of myself. Let me set the stage:

Dar’kharrow Port. The barren streets are all but silent, as a faint flicker of lights pour out from within the tavern where it all started. “The miserable dinghy”… It is hard to imagine that everything sprung from this place, but fate sometimes plays out in weird patterns. And today, fate takes a reroute through Whackyville.

A silent evening drink turned sour when a group of thugs figured that this was the best time to start a fight. With who you might ask? Well, that matters little to thugs. Yet these thugs were going to regret today’s choice of “targets”.

Please. let me introduce to you the lucky four:

Erast Blackburn. Wandering diplomat and a man of fine taste. He seeks only to further his reputation as a diplomat and enrich himself in the process. He cares little about the sides of the conflict between the living and the grimtouched. He seeks merely to enjoy his life whilst it last. Yet not one to be trifled with.

Eric and his wife Lucy. One common, one hot enough to melt the coldest heart. Many would look in awe and jealousy at this couple, wondering how the plain, boring, and completely generic man could ever pick up such a woman. An unbreakable relationship. You can test me on that statement, if you should desire an early, excruciatingly painful death.

Thanos Goto. Describing him is a challenge in and on itself. One might say he’s just another face in the crowd. I would say he’s all of the faces in the crowd. A master of stealth, disguise, and assassination, taking Thanos lightly will be the first and last mistake you make. Especially if you tell him to his face. Whichever of them he carries at the time.

Little did the thugs know, that this was who they were dealing with. As you might’ve guessed, the battle took less than eighteen seconds, before the thugs had either fled, or donated a sufficiently large amount of blood to the tavern floor.

Little did the thugs know what they had just set in motion. With swift introductions, the four characters set out as a group. A group who would soon be feared as a rumor. As the ghosts that haunt children’s dreams.

Little did the thugs know, that fate is a cruel mistress indeed.

(Phillip continued (oh no)):

Fate is not the cruelest mistress known to the people of Dar’kharrow and what transpired in that very tavern did not go unnoticed. From the shadows emerged a horrible skeleton, dressed in ragged cloth with two short sword down it side. This horrendous creature approached our team of adventures, he reached out his hand to each of them in turn and handed a small piece of paper while two simple words escaped his bony jaw: “Tickets, please”.

Now as you might have guessed this piece of paper was the beginning of everything for our group of mischievous adventures. This little piece of paper was none other than a direct invitation from “The Mistress”. Now as i told you earlier dear traveller fate is a cruel mistress, but even she shows mercy from time to time, however this Mistress did not know that word… mercy. Her tale was extraordinary i tell you! A tale of love, war, betrayal and heroism, but that, my dear traveller, is a story for another time.

However our group of peculiar individuals decided that this might be an opportunity for them to further explores the wonders and secrets of Dar’kharrow. They quickly settled their tabs and travelled in style towards Falkville, the hometown of the grimtouched! A place where undeads roam freely and humans cover in fear and hides under floorboards.

Using the carriage of Thanos this party of adventures was fairly well on their way to Falkville. Have i even told you, traveller, what a grimtouched really is? You see before the time of our tale Dar’kharrow used to be a normal country just like any other. But one fateful the Capital of Dar’kharrow was defeated in a mysterious flash of light! Some people say it was divine punishment and the city had grown too big, other stated that it was the works of an evil necromancer, whatever case it may be something extraordinary happened after this cities mysterious fall. The people started to wake up, not like your usual necromancy or other fancy magic trick, no complete free of any chains or mind controll these living dead, these people touched by the grim reaper, magically returned with no memory of their previous life or why they even were here. Oh, traveller i really want to tell you all the story about how this story came to be, but you see we have a long road ahead, and every road has some bumps.

Our adventures party actually hit a little bump on the road, nothing major and nothing they couldn’t bite their way out with ease and soon they arrived at the city of Falkville. Falkville still half burned down and damaged from when the Mistress descended upon the city and scourged it, the adventures arrives. They are quickly brought before the mistress of Falkville also known under the name of Altha Skyrunner along with her silent advisor Arnoldi Grailbearer, if you ever meet me again traveller ask me to tell you their story, it will be very worth your while.

The Mistress decided to test our fated group and sends them on a mission to bring her the head of three sergeants. The three sergeants camps outside Falkville along with their bands of merry men and ambush any grimtouched that leaves the city.

And this, my dear traveller is where tonights story ends, but don’t worry the tale continues tomorrow…
