To Steal a Feather

Preview

Even as we speak, many lives hang in the balance. Upon the Sunless Coast, at Harald Weakling’s tower where the night falls more often than not, that sorcerer’s paramour, the Siren Countess, has many would-be thieves in her enthral. Ser Cleve the Sharper and Deagh the Muscle Wizard, once Harald’s crew-mate, are at large still, outwith the tower and planning a rescue.

And Harald isn’t even here yet. Day 8 of The Enchantress’ Geas.

The Escape

Deagh and his summoned demon faced off against an army - Uh oh, sleep spell!

Zzzzzzzz zzz zzz…
- Deagh

Silent X and Linnaeus went off each in their own way and got into a running fight with the Ninja Wizard and two pirates.
Cleve scared the pirates away from Deagh, rescued him, and then the two set about chasing down the Siren Countess. After burning a few gulls they discovered her hiding as a rock among some rocks and tried fighting her hand-to-hand.

Pluck thy qualingin joiten thou guts-gripping ratsbane
- Cleve's Wand of Insults

Deagh was struck and lost all his intelligence. After being clearly beaten Deagh and Cleve made a retreat while the Siren flew to seek the aid of her lover, Harald the Weakling.

Regrouping

All their powers spent, Deagh, Silent X, and Ser Cleve met back at the camp to plot a rescue. They were joined by Brock and ……

The Rescue

The plan was to attack all together at the break of dawn, but when Ser Cleve discovered Harald the Weakling and the Siren teleporting back he decided to seize the opportunity and attacked alone. He mazed Haraold with a lucky first strike and immediately thereafter reversed the Siren's charm on his allies. Harald returned and cast Mentzer's Relative Time Dialation before being held by Mukroc Drungo Drungas.

Mentzer's Relative Time Dialation never heard of it, what does it do? Shit this spell is brutal.

The Endumbening Of The Siren Countess
After the fight we healed our wounded and mourned the loss of Captain Mirvan who died heroically trying to finish off the held Harald. We took Harald's magic cloak, and limped home to Sftabhmontown
