On a dark and stormy night we ventured out to the edge of the Ghostwood Marsh. Along the way some owlbears tried to accept an offering of food from Capn Me’Slash U’Up, but they thought he was the offered food and tried to eat him….
We had to meet them with arrow and talon as a result but everyone managed to surviver well enough. Salome did drop at one point which proved to be a foreshadowing of what was to come.
After a quick rest for Salome to regain her strength we ventured south to the location of the strangely haunting manor that we had been sent to investigate. We never should have gone inside though.
The manor grounds had two open graves ready and waiting for Trent and myself. Seeing such an omen we should have turned back then and there. Instead…. we pushed on into the manor itself which clearly did not like our presence within it as it was soon to be the site of a battle between us and swords that flew off the wall to attack Snowball. Even the drinks counter got involved, as it turned out to be a living creature only mimicing a piece of furniture.
This fight was not so deadly, however, and we managed to snatch victory from those mighty symbols of war and partying. It was upstairs that the omen rang its death knell for Salome. Snowball and Trent had gone upstairs to investigate one of the rooms when the door slammed shut behind them and toys came to life to kill them; constantly calling for their Mommy and suspecting that each of us were them.
We ripped the door apart in our efforts to aid them but by then two Specters had appeared as well. These dark twisted souls in the form of children repeatedly attempted to rip out our souls and before we were able to stop them they managed to do so to Salome…. After the battle had ended for good we buried Salome in the grave with my name and returned home to carve her name on the wall.

A Christmas one-shot module by DGM. Last session of 2023.
After getting a letter, we went to confront the Master. Gringal joined us but went ahead of us and lost to the Master. We entered through doorway in cave that was a portal to demiplane. Found cathedral where Master was, still possessing Destra’s body. Fought and managed to remove Master from Destra, leaving Master as puddle of shadows. Destroyed owl statues that Master used to hold onto his power. Gringal sacrificed himself to ensure that remaining owl statues would be destroyed and that Master would not escape. We left and destroyed the stone slab, destroying the doorway. Returned to Destra’s tree. Found that Destra had lost her memory.
After rescuing Beralt from the Master’s forces, the party travelled with Clair to find gnome Cleric and ask about Blue, the Master’s lover, and her daughter Destra. Fought evil spirits in the Small Folk Forest. Met Fizzle that could transform into a lizard. Celebrated marriage of newlywed halflings Darcy and Gillian. Fought Master’s servants Ilestra and Alchemist at Destra’s palace. Met with Cleric and his companion Stream.
Asked about how to save Destra who had her body taken over by the Master and how to give Blue a new body. Cleric said only Destra could give Blue a new body. Cleric then took us back in time to talk to past Blue to stand up against the Master for her daughter Destra’s sake. Also talked to past Ilestra. Returned to present and found that Ilestra was alive with new memories and relationship to us. She was no longer the servant of the Master. Cleric did not return to confirm whether Destra’s body was still taken over by Master, so we went back to town.
