DM-Tater

Players: Nalkris, Stitches, Depthcaller, Emerion, Lysing

Well I hope these words reach you in peace.

Our party left out of the town of Ruined Oak. It was a pleasant group consisting of Emerion our leader, Stitches our Healer, Nalkris the Blaster, and Depthcaller the silent, and myself.

As we traveled we head in to the plains east of Ruined Oak and South of the road.  The wilderness was pleasant as was the weather as we strolled along when in a moment of light I found myself disoriented and with the feeling of having used my magic.  Some of the other had blood on their weapons and the same confused look. We searched the area and could not find any sign of having been in a battle nor was there any signs as to what we may have fought. This greatly perplexed us as we traveled on.

During our fist night we camped out under the stars and my watch went well, I then woke Emerion and headed off to slumber.  Later I was woken by shouts and saw three bloody skeletal creatures attacking us.  I unleashed my lighting against our foe but they dropped Emerion, Stitches, and Depthcaller within moments and Nalkris and I feared that would be the end of us. Then another flash of light occurred and the next moment I saw the bloody skeletons now lacking blood laying crumpled on the ground.  Nalkris and I quickly went about stabilizing the other members and after a few minutes of debating whether to leave the area or stay we chose the latter and fortunately nothing else occurred that night.

The next day we traveled further South towards the river where we spied a large statue.  It was mostly a column made of stone with no determinable marking or writing on it.  Its most prominent feature was two large daggers  which I promptly began investigating.  After a few moments I realized that one of the dagger moved and I could hear sounds from within the statue be could not determine any result. That is when Nalkris, I believe it was may have been Emersion, moved the other dagger which caused a panel to open where we found a small pouch which contained a vial of reddish liquid. We took the prize and continued on our way.  As we did so once again we experienced a flash of light and found our weapons bloody, it also seem that some time had pass that we again could not account for.  This greatly concern us as we feared that this was either a phenomenon of the area we were in, or the the result of some unseen adversary.  We decided that whatever the cause putting some distance between it would be in our best interest so we headed to the river where we were able to clean ourselves and refresh our supplies.  Again nothing interesting occurred during my watch, but when morning came I was informed that Nalkris had experienced another flash of light, and had discovered through interaction with his raven that a nondescript man had came up in the night and touched him.  He had no recollection of this himself but now we were convinced that it was an entity that we were dealing with.

After discussing how we should escape what ever was stalking us it was decided that crossing the bridge to the North might suffice as the river may have been a boundary of some sort.  However as we began crossing the bridge a group of eight scantly dress bandits accosted us and demanded that we pay with all that we had.  We convinced them that we were actually fleeing from something more terrible then them and that we should be allowed to pass, we warned them that they should leave as well.  The bandit reluctant to give up their lucrative spot remained as we proceeded down the road. We had not traveled more than mile or so till we heard distance screams from the direction of the bridge.  We quicken our pace and after distancing several mile encountered another group.  This time it was some adventures on horse back and they seemed very confident in themselves as we delivered our dire warning to them. During our discourse with the adventures one of the bandits from the bridge came towards us screaming like a mad man. He was without weapon and claimed that something had taken his brothers at the bridge. He begged us to take him to safety even offering a small container of grease as payment.  The party was hesitant but decided to take him with us, it was then that the group of adventures headed off towards the bridge.  We offered them cheers and prayers as the disappeared off into the distance.

We ventured off the road for the night, and bound the vagabond named “Neval” by the wrist for a small measure of safety and set up camp on a small hill. Again my watch was very peaceful and relaxing and later Stitches informed me of seeing a small family group of small primates that had huddled together in some nearby trees.  But this night held more danger for us as the very stars poured down their wraith.  blood tears from the stars were falling all around us and one striking the ground near me burned my skin and covered me in dirt.  We scrambled frantically looking for shelter of which there was none and then decided to flee the area as fast as we could.  The scramble was exhausting but soon were safer as we had either left the area or the stars wraith had become sated, I care not which it was only that it stopped.

The next morning we push on and noticed a structure to the north near a large forested area.  The party decided to go investigate it but Neval was having none of it.  We were not able to get any answer out of him as to what struck such fear in him about that place.  Even Depthcaller imposing glare could not prevent the vagabond from fleeing.  Regardless of Nevals actions we proceeded closer to the structure and saw that it was a mansion of sorts despite its decrepit state. It seemed as if the woods itself was growing into it in a way that seemed like it was devouring it.  They when we also began to hear strange distance whispers.  I could not make out any language or word but the sounds made my skin crawl and a lump of dread form in gullet.  We then decided we had enough fun for one outing and that it was time now to return home.

As we headed back to Ruined Oak we met up with one of the adventures that we had met the day before. He seemed lost and confused and was without his weapons.  He had no recollection of meeting us before, nor could he remember what it was that he was doing in this area. Most shocking however was that the man could not even recall his own name.  Having compassion we took the man with his horse in toll and headed East along the road.  As night fell it found us back at the bridge and we found no signs of either the bandits or the other adventures, save for what look like a small camp near the shore.  We took refuge on the bridge and during the night the creature showed itself to the party. I was awoken by a magical blast from Nalkirs and barely saw a shape jump over the side of the bridge.  It was described to me as amorphous creature that had begun shaping it different body parts to the likeness of the group. Nalkris told me that the creature was stealing our memories and forms and that it would be back.  As soon as there was light in the morning we took off on the last bit of the journey back to Ruined Oak.  I was elated to once again see the comforts of the Inn and the smell of the freshly baked bread from the market place.  However I found myself  laying  awake at night thinking about this creature and the fate that it has in store for us.
