Thadeus goes to visit a Priestess of Abadar, who had a vision of Him and His Allies. She has been demoted from her position and doesn’t wish to speak with him. She says, “I was hoping you would forget about me.” “I would never do that.” Replied Thadeus. Pondering, she says, “For you to learn what I have seen would cost me my life.” “Then I do not wish to know. Some prices should never be paid.” The lady bows her head and tells him to go in peace. Thadeus says, “I can only be at peace when you are at peace.” The Lady replies, “The time is soon when I will be ready.” He then departs and is pondering this conversation. The next day a messenger arrives. He says a Priestess wished this deliver if she passed. Thadeus shocked that she died inquires of her death, but the messenger only tells him he would have to ask the temple. Thadeus opens the note and it reads; “From the marshes of the Abyss, through the endless sands of time. Comes the Great horde to consume the World. The Fortress like mountains shall be held by the Dwarven King. To see if the Children of the Gods put to rest the Old Ways.” Thadeus goes to the Temple of Abadar to learn how she passed. The priest don’t say much but he gets the idea it was quite horrific. He pays his respects at her funeral and says a prayer to her god and his. He donates 1000 gold to give her a nice headstone. After the funeral, he is approached by an old worshipper of Rovagug who tells him, “Her pain is Yours.” Thadeus angrily replies, “Soon her pain will be yours to experience.”
Shere Khan decides to head out to Highfall and see how his apprentice is doing. He notices the town has actually started developing some nice fortifications. His apprentice says they get donations daily. He decides to go hunt for a feast he wishes to have with the villagers. As he is hunting he notices the valley is full of livestock. He notices nature seems to be enchanted to be more fertile and prosperous here. He heads back and holds a festival that he calls The Festival of Thadeus.
Send goes to Seth and asks if he can stay with him. He tells him his dad kicked him out for lighting the library on fire. Seth says he can share a room with him at the Temple of Shaelyn, but better not light anything on fire. He decides to leave and ask Shere Khan but leaves out why he needs a place to stay. Shere khan informs him he lives with the Prince but Send doesn’t wish to stay there because the Prince creeps him out.
Pathox continues to seek out minerals for pay. He also confronts the man stealing money from his shrine. The man is posing as a priest and pocketing collections. Pathox scares the crap out of him and makes him return all the money he has stolen.
The group meets up to decide what to do with the two artifacts they have discovered. They decide to try and destroy the Bone of Pestilence. Seth suggests they take it to Shaelyn’s Temple, because he has pull there. When the group arrives Seth asks for an Appointment and is told they cannot meet until three weeks from now. The group then decides to go to the Temple of Torag, One of Thadeus’s gods. They meet with a priest and Thadeus makes a 500 gold donation. They are able to see a priest right away. They show the priest the item and explain that they want it destroyed. The priest tells them it will take a few days to decipher what it is and learn how to destroy it. The group waits at the Temple until the priest is complete. When the priest is done he is hesitant to hand the Artifact back. He truly wishes to destroy it but cannot without having two other artifacts. The group doesn’t tell him about the other artifacts. He says if they get three of them he can attempt to destroy them. Thadeus asks if it would help to have some other churches help out. The priest says he will inquire about it.
The Group decides to leave and place the Artifact in Thadeus’s vault. As they are leaving the temple, Thadeus and Send notice a beautiful woman walking through the crowd as if a ghost. Thadeus starts to walk towards her but she freezes him in place with a look. She then approaches Send and touches his face. Send screams out in pain as his life is drained from him. The rest of the party and the street is shocked by this but did not see the Lady. They take Send to his church to be restored. Thadeus describes the girl and comes to the realization of who she is. She is a Lady in waiting for a powerful entity and is tied to The Vaults; A mysterious realms deep below the Underdark. He gets the sense they are meant to cross paths. She is calling for the Godborn and the mix of strong magics caused the drainage of life of Send. He also knows that the Tiara of Life will free her but he isn’t sure if that is a good thing.
She quickly vanishes without a word. They start investigating about the Lord Of Pleasure. He is a noble who has the Reef of Peace, The third artifact needed. Shere khan decides to ask Prince Fifftiffnes about this Lord Jonas. He finds out the man deals in Pleasure even extremely exotic kinds. The Prince says he will arrange for us to meet with the Lord at a party. He also tells him about a person named Talis who could be of assistance to them but know one knows what he or she looks like. The prince then tells him about these weird dreams he is having, which is odd because his kind do not dream. These dreams seem to be making him question his sanity. As Shere Khan is walking away the Prince says, “By the way the young elf can stay here if he wishes.” Seth attempts a scrying of the Lord of Pleasure, he sees the Lord having a good time and is quickly cut off when the Lord notices. The group gets an invite to the Lord of Pleasures party.
The group arrives at the party and is shocked by the extreme acts of sexuality. The party seems to have a horse theme. Seth and Send quickly try and hide, but don’t realize that is a game at the party. You hide and if you are found you have to do whatever the person wants. Seth is quickly found and actually goes through with it. Send is never found. Thadeus is approached by a ton of people who want to do dirty things. He is willing to dance but refuses to do anything else.
After Seth’s sexual romp, he finds a door guarded by Two Grey renders. they quickly usher him away. Send comes to a door and opens it to reveal two Hobgoblins choking what appear to be small greyish children. He summons the group to him and a battle ensues. During the fight, Seth charms one and learns they are just killing evil fae. the group stops combat and some join in on the killing.
The Lord of Pleasure bursts in the room and is quite intimidating until he speaks. He is very femmie and flamboyant. He invites the group to his private chamber. Once there Send just flat out asks him for the Reef of Peace. The man says he has it but will not give it for free. Thadeus tells him he is in danger as long as he keeps it. There is a group who will do him harm for that item. he says he will sell it to us for 36000 gold. Seth then tells him that we are Godborn. The man becomes interested and up his price. He wants Land in Highfall and a night of pleasure with one of us. Thadeus and Shere Khan do not want to accept the deal. Shere Khan offers to fight in his fabled underground tournament for the Reef. Lord Jonas then says, " A bet it is. If you win you get the Reef. If I win, I get my land and a night of Pleasure with one of you." All accept the terms accept Thadeus. He eventually accepts grudgingly.
We enter the tournament and each one of us is introduced. Seth comes out nervously and begins farting. He announces he is a Servant of Shaelyn and a Servant of the Light. Pathox makes a huge show of it listing some of his greatly exaggerated deeds. Send comes out and is cheered on b y a group of elves. Shere khan runs out doing acrobatics to impress the crowd. There are Illithids in full plate that give off a battle cry in his honor. Thadeus comes to the announcement of his heritage and notices the Senstun Ambassador in the crowd with a floppy hat. He shoots the hat off his head with an arrow. The Lord begins a grand speech and announces our opponents. A Glass Golem, A Neh-Thalggu, and A Grey Render. He also announces a special guest who he calls him the Lord of Creation. Thadeus recognizes him as The Vaultkeeper. The shrouded figure comes to the Lord and speaks with him in private. The Lord then announces the battle shall be of Blood.
The Shrouded man walks down to accept our tributes to the Battle. Thadeus gives his blood blessed by the gods (5). Seth offers 10000 gold (5). Send has his monkey blow up a special kind of powder (6). Shere Khan gives his blood (5). Pathox gives his blood and uses a spell to make the arena look as if it is filling with his blood (+5). The man accepts all and departs.
As the fight begins, Send shoots a fireball at the Golem and it is reflected right back at the group. Send slows down the Grey wonder. The Neh-Thalggu charges Thadeus and rips in to him. Shere Khan jumps at the Golem and starts breaking huge chunks off with his fist. Thadeus and Pathox begin attacking the Neh-Thalggu. Pathox attempts a spell but the Neh resists it. Thadeus returns the favor and tears in to it with arrows. Send throws fire at the Grey render. Seth attempts a spell at the Neh but it also doesn’t work. The Neh quickly casts invisibility on itself and disappears. Shere khan continues pummeling the Glass Golme which then explodes and hurts the grey render. Turning his fists on the grey render, he quickly pummels it to death. Pathox and Thadeus not able to see their quarry hold until it is visible. Send runs over to Thadeus and cast See Invisibility on him. Thadeus seeing the pray right above Pathox unleashes a volley of arrows which rip in the creature ending its life. The crowd goes nuts and begins cheering.
The Vaultkeeper whispers to Lord Jonas and he smiles. Jonas proclaims for all to hear, “May the Gods of Old fear the Children of the Gods of Ulfgar.” The crowd goes deftly silent as the arena shakes. Behind the heroes appear silhouettes of their gods, who bless them with power. Then in the middle of the arena a face appears that no one recognizes. Thadeus recites the letter the Priestess left him. The group realizes this is their enemy and the war has just begun.
Lord Jonas true to his word gives the group the Reef of Peace. It is a beautiful platinum reef with intricate designs of leaves. The crowd begins throwing money at the heroes. Thadeus, Pathox, and Seth get 2000 each. Send ends up receiving 5000 gold and Shere Khan gets 6000 gold. Send puts the Reef on and gets a vision of the Lady in Waiting. She makes it so he doesn’t take the curse from it. She tells him he is special like us and wishes to be killed or freed. He explains the Reef makes you a complete pacifist. Shere Khan and Thadeus are horrified by this item. Seth decides to put it on and gets a benefit but can never cause a single point of damage to anyone. He then removes the Reef but is still affected by its power. Pathox decides to try the Tiara of Life on and is given a divine glow. He tells us it has the power to resurrect the person wearing it.
The group leaves the tournament and heads to the Tample of Torag. As they get there the priest try to usher them in quickly. They then notice the kings men coming down the Alley of the Divines. Seth suspicious decides to flee from the priest. He is seen adn the priest convinces him they are trying to help the group. They take the group through some catacombs and arrive in small chamber. They tell the group they can send them to The Dwarven Kingdom or Senstun. They have a piece of a circle they use to break the veil. The group decides to be sent to The Dwarven Kingdom. The priest say they are going to send a decoy group to Senstun. The priest tear the veil and the group begins stepping through. Thadeus being the last one through sees the decoy group get torn to shreds when they open the portal to Senstun. A priest quickly closes that protal before the creatures come through. Thadeus thanks the remaining priests for their sacrifice and steps through. The group appears in the bathing room of a Dwarven woman who is freaking out from their arrival. Pathox offers her a tabard to cover up.

Adryan runs out of the tent, the halfling yells at his guard Frank to go after him. But Frank just sits there and drinks.
Pathox upon walking through the keep finds an armory belong to the Lord. Inside are some great armor designs some with holy symbols etched in to the armor. He quickly notices they are symbols to Torag, The God of Creation and Protection. He ends up going to the shopkeeper and drinking with Frank the Bodyguard. Adryan comes back and talks with the shopkeeper. The Halflings name is Nell Shorthop. He is all about business and barely laughs. Adryan quickly gets him to laugh. He buys some gear from the Halfling.
The next day comes and the Great Hunt begins. The group is first to fight. The rules are they will face three waves of opponents. Every 36 seconds a wave will be released. Samson escorts them to the arena. The fights are to the death. They walk down a long hallway that slowly becomes natural rock. They get to a small room with a blackened doorway. Samson directs them to step through. He explains that only recently has this magic become available and directs them to walk through the doorway.
Isabella is the first to walk through and she appears inside a serene forest. As the group enters they notice the sound of animals approaching. Adryan and Seth notice they are blink dogs. The group quickly kills them before the next wave is released. They then notice two doorways appearing at a distance and Two Barghest appear right in front of them. Adryan slays the bigger one on his first hit. The rest gang up on the little one. When the next round begins the group notices the ground shaking and a Crystal Dragon rips through the ground. The battle commences and Pathox gets the killing blow. Another doorway appears and the group is hesitant to go through. Seth gathers some parts off of the creatures killed. The group steps through and find they are back in the starting room. Samson is there waiting. He tells them it was impressive how they fought that dragon. He shows them a crystal that makes it so they can watch the entire match. He then takes them to a healing area and they notice other warriors bandaged up and getting healed. They have priests from many religions here healing the injured and resurrecting those that have fallen.
There is a banquet in the Grand Hall. Isabella goes and sits with a group of Dwarves. Adryan begins playing a song to get the room partying. Samson plays with him letting Adryan take the lead. Pathox begins telling jokes to Nell Shorthop trying to make him laugh and he succeeds. Seth is getting very drunk. When the party begins to quiet down. Samson starts telling a tale of the last Tournament of Champions. He Begins by saying, “This tale begins on a dark stormy night, as most great stories do. Although the Tournament was held in Ulfgar. This tale begins in the Great Senstun Empire. The Queen has summoned her greatest advisers to help her.”
The advisers begin the meeting. The Queen tells the group Titus has disappeared. He was heading to Tulan to help with the Armies training. The group begin with asking his second what happened. He says Titus said he had an important quest to go on and left him in charge. The bard begins casting spells to locate Titus. She realizes something is blocking him from detection, but one spell directs her to The Tournament of Champions. They go to his and find out from his wife that he went to Ulfgar. The ninja investigates Titus’s Altar room and notices a faint hint of power inside. The group heads to Ulfgar.
They get to Ulfgar and the city is a buzz about the Tournament. The ninja heads to the Dwarven Embassy. She finds he passed through and was doing some research about the Tournament and its history. The Bard and Paladin head to the tournament. They see huge crowds and hear the shouts of battle. They head to the sign in area and ask if Titus has signed up. He informs them he hasn’t signed up. The guard asks the Great Queen of Rudek if she will be signing up today. She replies no and flies in the air. She asks the crowd if they have seen Titus. The crowd of course says yes just so they can spend a little time with the Beautiful Bard and Paladin. The ninja suggests the paladin ask his blood thirsty god for guidance. The paladin prays and is given guidance to sign up for the tourney. They go to sign up and are asked if another person can join their group. It is a drow and the group accepts him to the group. While waiting for the first fight to begin the bard flies to The Arcane College and does some research on he Tournament. She finds out the Tournament has recently been highly funded by Chaotic Churches. She also finds out some adventurer’s do not get brought back to life at all. She heads back to the tourney.
The first round is about to begin. The group is taken to a huge vault and can borrow any item they want. They soon realize the tourney is all about entertainment. They want people to survive as long as possible. The group takes some items and begins heading to their fight. The rules are you will fight your creatures to the death. After the creature is killed the next one will be released immediately.
They begin walking through the tunnel. The roar of the crowd is deafening. They see wet blood pouring down the walkway. The Bard enters the arena and gives a speech about her group. The crowd goes nuts and the battle begins. They begin their first fight against 2 Nightcrawler Nightshades. The group decimates these creatures. The next opponent enters the arena, It is a Plemora Aeon. The battle is quite long and drawn out but the group wins in the end.
Samson stops telling his story and says, “I am sorry I have taken most of your time the night is almost over. I will have to continue this story another night. Get some rest the next round begins tomorrow.” The whole chamber is enthralled by his story, but they disperse to sleep for the night.

Thadeus goes and visits with the Halfling Bar Owner of The Broken Anvil. The Broken Anvil has been completely rebuilt and Thadeus sets up six of The Highfall peasants with a jobs. He then gets the other nine peasants jobs with Prince Fifftiffnes. The Prince adds these people to his do not eat list. He notices there are 50 more Illithids around his Keep. Thadeus goes to visit with the Fae Lady Essly. She is doing well on the Druid Island and doesn’t seem ill anymore from the storm. Thadeus then notices there are 25 more Illithids on this island. He asks the druids why they are here. The Druids say they can not say why they are allowed here as part of a deal they made. The Druids are nervous but unharmed. Thadeus tells them about the Druid Sanctuary in Highfall.
Adryan is investigating what farmers can grow in the rain. He over hears some people talking about having trouble growing food in the sunlight. Adryan goes over to them and see they are Svirfneblin. They tell him he can find some of these speical mushrooms that grow well in dark wet areas. They are located in catacombs under the drow city. They actually will pay him to retrieve some.
Shere Khan sends his apprentice to start a monastery. Thadeus gives the boy 4000 gold to get started.
Pathox is at his Shrine and gets approached by a man named Grieger. The man is accusing Pathox of blasphemy. Grieger says he is going to report Pathox to a magistrate. The next day Pathox gets summoned to see a magistrate. The Magistrate was going to let him go, but Pathox tells him he is a child of the gods. The Magistrate wants to test him. He tells Pathox to come back tomorrow so he can go through a test to prove his lineage. Pathox summons the group and we meet up at the site of the trial. Adryan brings an old class mate with him. His name is Seth an odd Elf. Inside there is a bag of coins on a table. They tell Pathox to touch the coins and if he is god born the coins will glow when he touches them. Pathox touches the coins but nothing happens. He then says a prayer to his god, Apsu. The coins then begin to shake and float in the air. The coins then glow with an extremely bright light. At first, no one believes it but they eventually acknowledge him as god born and allow his shrine to stay. He makes the man Grieger apologize for insulting him. He is now officially acknowledged as Pathox the Great in Ulfgar.
We come across a group called New Moons Peace. They are gathering in near the gates of Ulfgar. Seth has heard they are a newer religion just around two months old. He is interested in the teachings of this religion. The group tells him about the true intentions of the church and who the god of peace really is. He doesn’t know if he trust the group due to what he sees. Adryan approaches the mass of people gathered. As he is walking through everyone seems to be touching him. He yells out, “Stop touching me!” Some of the crowd get frightened and leave the party. Thadeus and Shere Khan sneak through the camp. We spot some men with Daggers who are looking for any troublemakers against the Church of New Moon’s Peace. Shere Khan then notices Illithids walking around throughout the camp. He approaches one and learns her name is Commander Rakkath. The Illithids were sent to protect Shere Khan. They tell him of a plot to kill Adryan. He asks the Illithid to warn the whole group when the assassins are about to strike. Thadeus asks them where this group keeps their money. The Illithid inform him that it is at an inn with needless sex happening. Adryan is approached by a king’s man and is warned about the assassins. The King’s man tells him they have no love for the people of this religion and he can do whatever he wants with the assassins. He also informs him they are not citizens of Ulfgar. Adryan approaches one of the speakers for this religion. The man talks to the crowd about how Adryan represents everything wrong with this world. Adryan then offers him a drink. The man then tells the crowd how his time among them has made Adryan more peaceful. Adryan then tells him, “My peace has nothing to do with you.” The man walks away and Seth begins reading his thoughts. At first they are focused, but then he sees some horrific images. Seth comes to the conclusion that our group might be telling the truth about the God of Peace.
We realize the Assassin’s are about to strike. The battle begins and Seth casts slow on four assassins. We incapacitate them quickly and notice the rest of the assassins disperse in to the crowd. The King’s men come through and begin clearing people out. Seth casts Speak with Dead on one of the Fallen Assassins. The man confesses to dealing with people against the God of Peace. The crowd is stuned by this revelation. Adryan confronts the Speaker about this. The speaker says, “The man doesn’t represent the church.” The King’s men ask if Adryan wants to press charges against the assassins. Adryan gives an emphatic yes. They are arrested and eventually put to death. The group speaks with the King’s man who approached Adryan earlier. He tells us that these people are a hindrance to the king. He tells us the New Moon’s Peace is building a temple on an island outside of Ulfgar territory. The crown is offering us 1500 gold to go destroy this temple. All money we get is tax free. They also offer us 1000 gold for supplies.
We decide to go to the island on a flying boat. Thadeus notices there are some people from New Moon’s Peace following us. Also, some Illithids following and random people following just to see where the Illithids are going. Thadeus yels at all of them to stop following our group.
We get on a boat with room for twelve people and gear. The weather is getting gloomy as we get farther from Ulfgar. As we are traveling our boat gets hit with a fireball. Shere Khan leaps toward the source of the fireball and clings to a flying mage. The mage quickly submits to Shere Khan. Thadeus and Seth get attacked by two air elementals. As one elemental dies the other grows bigger by divine power. The mage begins helping and we quickly kill it. Afterward Thadeus pulls out the groups Boat of Folding. Pathox pulls the boat across the water.
Twelve hours later, we arrive at the island. We get to the shore stealthily. Adryan casts an illusion that gets the guards attention. We quickly sneak pass them while they are attacking the illusion. We notice the mage is following us. He tells us his leader is being controlled by the church. They have bound four powerful elementals and are trying to make something called The Children of the Storm. The man wants to help his people but Shere Khan tells him to leave. We sneak through the island until we get to the top of the island.
There are 1500 people worshiping an altar. On the altar are four people; a cleric, mage, warrior, and druid. There are four ethereal elementals bound by chains. We get approached by some Illithids dressed as guards. They tell us they can sneak us down there as sacrifices. We agree to the plan. Part way down Adryan begins singing to buff the group. We get to the altar and are approached by the mage. We realize it is Benanok and he is high on the power coursing through him. He yells for the guards to kill us. The group springs in to action. Shere khan and Thadeus quickly dispatch Benanok. Then the group picks off the cleric. Pathox breaths acid on the druid. Shere Khan quickly leaps at the warrior. The druid then casts a spell and turns the Pathox in to a frog. The group quickly kills the last two. The Elementals are released and wish to destroy everyone nearby. Adryan and Seth quickly head over to talk with them. He gets three of them to leave. The water elemental attacks the group and we quickly kill it. All the worshipers run away and the group searchs all the dead.

We get approached by two groups wanting to buy the ancient scroll we found. We tell them the scroll isn’t for sell. We put the scroll inside Thadeus’s vault. We get summoned to meet with the king. He looks to be a warrior and he carries a sword. He wishes to know about the threat of this weather and the cause behind it. We inform him about the gods we know are behind it and the threat they pose to the world. He tells us it is a tricky situation with many nobles supporting this new religion. He says Ulfgar has always remained neutral in such matters. Thadeus tells him there is no neutral in this fight, eventually Ulfgar will have to take a side. He lets us know we can consider the king a friend. He thanks us for our time and we reciprocate.

We find 521 gp, 944 sp, 3 uncut rose quartz (183 gold a piece), Air mine Talisman multi sign to the gods (Art worth 350 gold, one time use gives +5 to commune with the gods), Chimes that fascinate a crowd, Rosewood Box (390 gold, art), Painting of the last Ulfgar King (360 gold), 10 Elixirs of Lesser Dragon Breath (2d6 DC 15, worth 250 gold).
We get to the island and interrogate Benanok; he offers the group 8000 gold to let him go. He will call back the Salamanders he has command over. We write up a contract to let him live. He offers us a plan but we refuse his help. He ends up calling his pets back and leaves on the boat.
We decide to go after one at a time. We look for the cleric first. Shere Khan uses his scent to track him down. He finds the track but runs right in to the priests camp. He runs off and they end up chasing him. There is the priest plus four Xills. He leads them right to our group. Thadeus quickly kills Rasha. The Xill are intent on killing Lord Green. The group tries to dispatch them quickly but they end up killing Lord Green. The group is finally able to kill the Xills. Rasha has the second piece of the Fae’s soul, the Heartgem. The group mourns the death of Lord Green. Isabella goes off with Lord Green’s body and burns it.
Tasgamry comes to us with her group of four Fiendish Minotaurs. She wants all of Rasha’s gear and his body. In return, She will give us the last piece of the soul and leave the island with out incident. Isabella challenges Tasgamry and tells her they are now enemies. She will hunt her down until one of them die.
The group goes to the Druids and tell them what happened. They inform us this is a place between worlds. We end up drinking at the festival with the Druids. During the festival we all see a Celestial Unicorn. We receive a blessing that let us use Hero points on another person one time.
We head back to Ulfgar and meet up with Benanok. He pays us the 8000 gold grudgingly.
We go to meet the Fae but Lord Green’s father released all his Harem. We go looking for them. We find them working in a bar. We work with the bartender to get them back. We execute Lord Green’s will and they all get citizenship. We give the Fae her soul back. She cannot leave this plane for awhile. Thadeus offers for her to stay with him.
We go meet the prince. He readily meets with us. We approach him to petition for Lord Green to receive a name posthumous. He accepts but we have to stay with him for awhile. We move in and Lord Green receives a name.

Treasure we each get 2517 gp 241sp, we keep the chimes and the Air Talisman.
