The City of Brass

June 17th Adventure Summary

The Party, attempting to flee the city until things got quiet set out to find the source of this Final Messanger they discovered earlier. They put together supplies and received a little scratch from their former teammate Darrak.

The Party set out in the desert, and getting lost only once and aquiring the help of Magog they finally find the place where Magog says “Metal men fall from the sky.” and where a rope confusingly was strung up. Way up. The little goblin ends up uncovering a warforged there, which the party reactivates and then begrudingly pays for. The Warforged’s name was Kronad and he lead them up the rope to reconnect with the rest of the Cyran Extraplanar Expeditionary Force once a potent force but now just holding on , in the outside edge of a fortress.

This fortress was made to house Archons and contained an Archon Forge that CEEF had thought to claim for Cyre. However, long losses and the fact that the two kinds of archons the forged seemed to be able to make (Airie and Ember Archons) fought as much with each other over the forge as outsiders, has lead to a stalemate.

The party also discovered that the commander in the Final Messanger they found previously, Commander Prime is missing and presumed dead, replaced by his 2ic Jackal who seems content to try to wait out the Archons.

The party rather tactlessly tried to tell Jackal that Cyre was dead, but Jackal just shook his head saying “We figured that out, and I’d appreciate it if you didn’t tell the men”. Jackal gave his blessing to the party poking around in the castle and even authorized his quartermaster, a dwarf surprisingly, to give payment to the Gith yanki merchants that served as a supply point for what was left of CEEF.

The Gith are a race of former slaves, who having broken away from their former tyrants have turned on themselves. Gith yanki have two colours , white on the left side of the body, black on the right. Gith zerai also have two colours, Black on the left side of the body, white on the right. All gith consider gith with the wrong coloration (reversed from them of course) to be abominations worthy only of destuction.

The party stocked up and entered the castle, encountering the denizens, the archons for the first time, and saving an Ork, who they were surprised to see. The Ork revealed the Ork encampment in the basement and a secret staircase. The Party hurried up the staircase going to the 4th floor and fighting first a pair of Airie Archons but mostly a Gith zerai raiding party, who they defeated eventually, aquiring some magic items and a flying boat.

The Party retreated and are now planning their second incursion.

The Story So Far...

So far.

Originally the party were pupils of the wise mage, tutor, and scholar Magnus. The Party prospered under Magnus’s tutoring until one day when his son, Marius returned. Everyone suspect that Magnus has a dark and troubled past given his appearance and penchant for black robes. Magnus’s son Marius however brought trouble in spades. The Party in defending their mentor, invoked the wrath ofMarius who conjured a portal to the Elemental Chaos which took the form of a whirlwind, after defeating Magnus himself.

Magnus’s house landed in the Elemental Chaos , on a certain unfortunate wizard. After some disagreement about boots the party managed to barter their way to the City of Brass.Magnus was struck senseless by Marius’s attack and soon the party found themselves hunting slaad in an attempt to remain freemen. After an unfortunate encounter with a blue slaad, The Warlord Mordain was killed by the infectious beast’s breeding cycle, his head detaching as a new red slaad. The Party in their attempt to save Mordain, had sold themselves into slavery to Fittious Finch.

Fittious Finch, after a year of tedium , gave them the option of ‘earning’ out their contracts, and sent them to retrieve several objects. Finch also sent another of his slaves who was able to buy his own freedom, Darrak, a Paladin of Bahamut.

The Party quickly solved and recovered many objects and obstacles in the sewers and finally completed Finch’s list. Finch sent them off without a further word, disappointing when they tried to dupe him, leaving the party back to square one. They quickly earned enough money to afford a ritual to remove afflictions from Magnus, returning him to his senses, and purchasing (Limron and Darrak)an estate in one of the better parts of the outskirts. (Kendra and Kodak were sensible and rented rooms from Alpha)

Recently the party has been doing a wide variety of odd quests and works. Limron has married the drowish sistersChantel and Zelda and been accused of murder of a Paladin. Darrak is beginning to have a fall out with the church and his brothers over the appropriate pursuit of the Paladin Fergus and the murder of the Paladin Malachai. Kodiac is contemplating the meaning of the mechanical girl Alpha from the tenement house. Kendra has recently come into the acquaintance of other dragonborn in the city, especially the handsome and valourous B’Hrash.
