Introductions and discoveries were made at the manor between Gintsu Stormcloak, a deceptively charming human looking figure save for his oddities, eyes that faintly shined green and hair that was made of many colors in the wind, yet showed dark in stillness.
Stevb (Steev-b) a human with decrepit and twisted possessions who’s beauty knew no match for the time being. Dressed as a Paladin yet clothed in menacing gear he was highly suspicious but was a team player, for now.
Bigboy and his friend Washington, easily half-giants by their size were quick to accept sticking together. Whatever their real machinations are, are unknown for now. Sayings abound to keep your friends close but your enemies closer, we shall see in time what they believe the rest of the party is.
And finally Lowsa, our female half-elf who’s main feature of note aside from her stealth and magic allure are her giant breasts. Reluctant to be a team player she charged money to her new acquaintances for a taste of her healing potion. Near the end of the players manor stay she had warmed up to Bigboy and Washington, giving them back their gold and sharing the potion with Big boy and Washington to carry a massive barrel of healing potion.
One by one each member of party began disappearing and arriving in a desert upon touching various items of the manor. And one by one they made their way to:
Lethtran desert oasis city. New city in the old tongue.
Gintsu arrived and was accosted by the local steampunk guard as one by one each of the other party members were whisked away from their strange manor rendezvous and into the same desert Gintsu found himself in. They each arrived at different times and discovered strange creatures attacking the city as well as discovering that upon nightfall the city is attacked by demons of some type. The only protection for the city seemingly large and innate runes covering all of the massive walls surrounding this oasis of a city. Lowsa noticed a tower seige on one par of the city and barley escaped a demon attack as she made her way inside. While all but Lowsa got arrested for not having an identification, of which, the party learns, is permanent and after a vehement negative toward that option the party was granted an audience with an oracle of sorts, of Ordan. When the pary leanred the history of the location they find themselves in.
The continent of Thesia used to have millions of inhabitants until “they” appeared. The strange ace of demons that rise from the planets core each nightfall to feed upon the people of the world. They reduced the population of the world down to a few cities that still stand to this day. The only known protection from these demons are the runes covering each city. “Wardens” as they are called renew and teach this type of magic to those that wish to learn it, and are highly prized for their powers.
The party was told of a Warden named Thom that they should seek out. It was in doing this work for the city that they would not be required to carry identification. Once Thom was found (and once Stevb and Lowsa stole from an offering bowl) Thom was found and together the party made it to the wall. Thom did quick work through the night and eventually once all was well Thom began explaining the introductions of Warding to Lowsa while the rest of the party either meditated or slept. We begin the next session after Gintsu has taken money from Stevb and Bigboy, for reasons unknown to the party.
