Strangers in Cerilia

The Attempted Assassination of the Partriarch

Lord Nicholas Duverne woke up ecstatic that his hired bodyguards had saved him from being bloodtheft by the Terror. He insisted they take the body of the failed assassin to Elinie's capital city of Ansion in order show the rest of the nobility of his innocence. He had maintained his innocence prior and now had the real culprit brought to justice.

The PCs escorted the Lord to Ansion and presented the body of the Terror to the court of the Patriarch. Instead of Patriarch Assan ibn Daouta they speak before his daught Kalilah. Kalilah is holding court for her father (badly) while the Patriarch is out hunting. After celebrating their exploits, she informs them that the Patriarch has heard of their adventure and wishes to meet them in person.

On their journey to meet the Patriarch, the come across villagers being attacked by goblins. They leap to their aid and with the help of a local paladin, put out the burning house and defeat the goblin threat. Nearby Knights of the Lances of Dawn arrive in time to help with the fire and see to protecting the other villagers in need.

The PCs finally arrive on the scene of the Patriarch's hunting party. It is a chaotic scene with horses and riders flushing out foxes while the Patriarch uses his pet falcon to catch quail. As the PCs make small talk with the Patriarch, Knights in the garb of the Lances of Dawn attack.

The PC save the Patriarch from the would be assassins and track the party back to an abandoned mill. They see a cloak figure and try to follow him. The cloaked figure escapes through portal to the shadow world. Inside the mill, the PCs find evidence that the cloaked figure was working for the Gorgon.

The Terror

A nobleman by the name of Nicholas Duverne hires the PCs as bodyguards. The escort Lord Duverne to his ancestral home where a funeral is being held for the Lord's father and older brother. Rumors fly that it was Nicholas who had the two killed to become lord. These rumors lead the staff to quit their posts rather than working for the new Lord. Soon all the guests leave and its just the PCs and Lord Duverne in the manor house.

That night, an assassin made of living shadow sneaks through the locked doors and tries to assault Lord Duverne. The PCs rally to the lord and repel the shadow and his hounds. The next day, the PCs research in the Lord's library about a local ghost story. A former ambassador for the Patriarch of Elinie gave into his Azrai bloodline and became an Awnsheghlien known as the Terror.

Further reading suggests his ability to put out torch light. The PCs purchase lanterns and oil in hopes to prevent a blackout in case the Terror returns. Their efforts paid off later that night when the Terror returned. Their strategic use of hooded lanterns forced the Terror to retreat towards the stable. Torni caught up and successfully bloodtheft the Terror.

Goblin Deserters

Goblins deserters from Markazor have taken up residence in the swamps of [[Hope's Demise]], in the northeastern province of Elinie. The Patriarch of Elinie, Assan ibn Daouta has placed a reward for the kill or capture of these goblin deserters. Several adventurers head the call and agree to join forces.
