Introduction

The party has arrived on the outskirts of Montoa village near the evening of the 8th of Tenrilden. Approaching stealthily via hunting trails, they prepare to deal with any Shemmites who might still be lurking in the razed village ...

Session Summary

Just before sundown there is a commotion to the South and all ten of the warriors we saw and ten more pour out of the chief's hut and go talk to another Shemite who is out of breath and he has an unconscious companion.

We rush to the chief's hut and find Ajax a trader/cleric who the Shemites captured. We free him and he helps us rush the leader and we severely wound the leader and drop several of them. The leader calls some to stand with him, and tells the others to run.

We slowly drop those opposing us and our missile fire only wounds the fleeing Shemites.

Alea is knocked down and Fisher and Braadlur pull her out of the fray and tend her wounds.

Then Fisher snares the leader and several of our party beat the leader while the rest face those left to fight so the rest can flee.

The leader is killed and only one who stood and fought managed to flee with several arrows in him.

The only survivor is the unconscious one with a dark elf sleep bolt in him. Rallion binds him and we take Alea to the lake and the wounded all get healed up.

While Rallion and Laris go to retrieve the refugees, Kauri, and Oskar, the rest of the party searches for the vessels and can't find them. They question the prisoner when he wakes up and take down the bodies of the Montoans before the refugees return.

Questioning the prisoner reveals that the dark elves had an ambush planned for someone else, and they appear to have trapped what we believe to be Vikram, trapped in some form of magic circle. Rallion was unable to find the tracks to lead them to the ambush location somewhere Southeast. So Rallion said they had to keep the prisoner alive to help us find this location. We don't know if the dark elves were after us or someone else. Perhaps catching Vikram was a coincidence. (Maybe they were after the DVLs that Vikram saw eating the duck billed dinosaur in Session 5?)

Kauri asks Tik Tok what he knows about the dark elves still having magic, and a daemon, Lolth, is their patron. She hates Asmodeus, like the DVL who tried to recruit us. Tik tok says their may be others acting as patrons, but most Daemons (DVLS who went mad) are not able to organize like Lolth. Loth treats the dark elves like they are her children.

Braadlur is able to find a walled up area and it was not meant to be opened. Inside is an ancient necromantic sanctuary to the "old ways" of the Matriarchs. Each Matriarch is represented in their cardinal direction and each has a symbol, in ancient common, carved in their arms. Cerida has "storm of ice" with icicles down her arm, Britta has "speak with animals", Feldma has "light" the light from Rallion's feather glitters, and Oswitha has entangle.

Each Matriarch also has a moon cycle above: Cerida Double Full Moon cycling through the left moon first, then the right moon. (Not sure yet which represents which) To East with Britta is is Double Half Moon Waxing, To South is Oswitha with Double New Moon, and to West with Feldma is Double Half moon waning.

Ajax tries entangle and Kauri sees a glow, but there are no plants down here, so nothing happens that the rest of us can see.

Braadlur tries speak with animals and has a nice conversation with Fisher that just sounds like clicks to the rest of us.

Under the altar is an ancient non-magical dagger. It has "Praise to the Matriarchs" in ancient common.

We plan to wait til morning and have our prisoner guide us to where Vikram was captured.

Kauri, Laris, and Ajax take copious notes. Braadlur seals up the chamber since Kalea says the old ways are wrong.
