Journal

A note about this journal's origins:
Entries are generally from the perspective of Glimkin, though he does not write anything down. The collective work possibly was put together by Aust, Aramith's father who keep occasional tabs on the group with some assistance from Harfur Glumtoes, a gnome historian of Ashabenford, who took an interest in the group after meeting them early in their career by collecting stories of the group from witnesses and other sources. Whether the biography is authorized or un-authorized by the group is unknown.


1325, Eleasis 1 (changed from Flamerule 16, check this)

Glimkin Born, day of Full Moon, Celebration of "The Offering of Trinkets" to Baervan Wildwanderer

1355

Early adventure with Glimkin and Weaver as Elves leave. First meeting with Aramith during this time.

1356

Story of how Glimkin deals with dragon attacks. Mostly by hiding or helping others hide.

1358, Feast of the Moon

Story of how Gilmkin deals with one of the bloodiest battles in history in Battledale. 7,000 Sembian mercenaries led of Zhentarim officers verses 100 Riders of Mistledale, Harpers, and Knights of Myth Drannor on the banks of Swords Creek. Defenders of Mistledale prevailed, thanks to Baergil, priest of Tempus who gave his life to create a ring of skulls that hurled death all round. His sacrifice promted an appearance by Tempus himself.

Travels back towards Inn to meet up with Gwendolyn (Glimkin, Cobb, Aramith, Blitzkrieg)
Start of "A Gate Too Far"
See a flash of lightning in the distance and investigate and found Numash who led us to evidence that Gwendolyn was abducted
Find a clearing in a thicket with 2 guys that ambushed us, which we were able to capture

They showed group how to use colored crystals to open a portal to their world.
We learned that the two men were shar kai
We had Drebon carry his unconscious comrade and lead us through the Shadow Plane to Gama Theda.

He led us over 3 arching bridges till we eventually got to wrought iron gate of Gama Theda, which was a modest sized walled fortress and town. It looked like the town was deserted for the most part. Bodies lie strewn about, some bloated and some newly dead. We assumed some kind of battle took place here.

We were able to climb over the wall and find a prison where Gwedelin was with a captured deer, kobald, goblin, and elf.

Drebon continued to lead us towards the library in town. We past areas that looked like market. We found more bodies and it appeared that most of the town's valuables were pillaged. Drebon ran away from us due to fear shortly before getting to the library.

The valuables in town were piled up in the center of the library and we were attacked by a crazed Shar-kai. Aramith killed him with his bow. He also had a gold and gem encrusted dagger that was the most beautiful thing ever seen. It was actually a powerful artifact that was able to control minds over a vast area. It convinced Glimkin that he wanted it, and once grasped that all around him wanted to kill them. So eventually Glimkin, Aramith, and Gwendeln were fighting over the weapon into the streets. Cobb put them to sleep and once everyone woke left. Cobb and Blitzkreig negotiated for our escape with Demoni, stole information on the gate system, and destroyed the dagger.

Spent the night at the Hawk's Shadow Inn

1369, Chez 26

Spent day resting at Hawk's Shadow Inn

1369, Chez 27

Started returning to return to finish the ceremony (were we going back to Ashabenford?)
We found a skeletal badger in the woods and Aramith and I shot it.
We were able to track it to a large whole in the ground right on the entrance roadway that leads to a farm.
We decided to return to Ashabenford to buy more rope, so we had enough to reach the bottom.

1369, Chez 28

Met Viet for the first time, who was friends with Blizkrieg. A traveling priest of Lathander called Faren Breacher also joined us.

1369, Chez 29

Headed back to hole in ground and investigated. It turns out the whole was inhabited by a Nevil who accidently fell into the hole with his parents along time ago. He seemed to have been greatly influenced by Shar, goddess of darkness. His parents were dead, and Nevil was at least partly insane, crafting golems in the shape of skeletal forms to do his bidding. We explored the earie labratory, defeated the guardian's, and captured Nevil before he was able to call on the power of his dark goddess.

Build raft and floated down river to get to the south road
Arrived back in town early morning

1369, Tarsakh 9 (Dec 1, 2010 real time)

Recruited to escort Nevil (son of powerful merchant) to sanitarium
Aunt Helen - concerned afraid of mental health
Wagon would arrive in 2 days.

1369, Tarsakh 10

We spent the day in Ashabenford while waiting for the wagon to pick up Nevil.
Glimkin bought a war pony from Kaulveras Greymantle and named him Turo.

1369, Tarsakh 11

The wagon arrived early in morning. It was driven by a guard named Jean Mason, who was from the hospital. She was beautiful, but a capable guard. The wagon had a cage on it, which we loaded Nevil in blindfolded and tied up.

About midday we were ambushed by a man who called himself Barney Abrams. He was also a nephew of Aunt Helen, like Nevil. He wanted us to free Nevil as he told us his Aunt Helen wanted Nevil dead and the sanitarium was a place where people did not leave. We tried to converse with him, but in the mean time myself and Arimith were able to sneak around behind him. Barney had 4 of his friends hidden in the woods. Aramith kept the 2 guy off on the right busy while I dealt with the right. I was able to knock out Bronze and then one of his other guards. I shot Barney's horse in the rear and made him buck and throw off Barney and he started running. As a team, we eventually captured Barny and his 4 guys (Nick, Lucky, Bronze, unknown).

We discussed returning them to Ashabenford, but Jean refused to turn back, so we traveled to the Shadow Hawk Inn and turned them over to the Riders of Misteldale. We also promised Barney that we would try our best to verify his story and not allow Nevil to be killed, if possible.

1369, Tarsakh 12

While at Glen, Viet receives word from his cousin Durok Stonehammer of the Oreseeker Clan that his clan needs help. The party decides to travel to the Dagger Hills to help.

1369, Mirtul 11

Party arrives at Oreseeker Hall (July 27, I think). They run an iron mine with some silver, which we later find out has some mithril, which the dwarves keep a secret. We find out that 1 6 man dwarven crew is missing and we were being asked to investigate. One of the missing men was Viet's Dad, who helped find new veins of ore. We jumped into a cart and rolled deep into the caves to a huge natural chamber and from then on we were on foot. We lowered ourselves to a lower using a weighted lift and continued on.

(August 10, 2011) we continued through a natural cavern and climbed down a hole that let to another cavern. We encountered a small group of goblins who we fought and were able to capture a couple.

(August 24, 2011) Blizkreig joined us out of nowhere and helped us in a battle with duegar.

The prisoners were questioned and their gear was examined.
Viet guessed at what the potions found might be and Arimith and Cobb confirmed his theories.
A room was discovered that held a hideous slave so horrible that she is 99% covered in white robes and linnens. She is controlled with a leash. The room is a broken teleportation chamber that can be fixed.

Another room was then discovered and you found a hidden floor stash with secret scrolls in it. They revealed this place as an important launch point that was once overrun by the dark dwarves.

Krunk questioned the Goblin further as to other places he failed to mention. The goblin added that there were other paths that would take them indirectly to the Drow enclave and they did not have to go in those directions. A water reservoir, an endless pit, a giant spider lair and a goblin town were optional paths.

Once the gang reached the Drow enclave Krunk lead a negotiation with the guard captain in the release of the Dwarven prisoners. Multiple plans were conceived and when the captain re-entered the stronghold Arimith, Cobb and You (Glimkin), stealthily reconed the outpost. The fearless three noted 6 Drow guards, 4 medium sized spiders, 2 large spiders, a large spider nest, one Drow wizard, a Drow Cleric and 4 almost dead, tortured Dwarves that were soon to die. You struggled with the idea of blowing your cover and attacking the Drow in order to save the Dwarves. It was at this point an unconscious dwarf moaned your name and asked if you were here. This got the attention of the Drow and gave you an easy shot at her back. You then realized that is was Cobb and knowing he was in the room, the two of you could save the dwarves form death. You smoke her hard with your staff almost knocking her to the ground, Cobb then unleashed a searing ray of fire that burned all her flesh from her head.

Arimith made himself known and a quick plan was to be relayed to the gang. Arimith then snuck back to the group and Cobb and you used two healing potions and bandages to help the Dwarves. The two with the healing potions are doing ok while the others are better but are in not condition to fight.

When the group starts the attack on the guards we are to attack the drow wizard and hit the guards from behind.

SIDE NOTE: Cobb almost got eaten by a big spider but he levitated himself up off the floor and used ghost sound to redirect the spiders attention.


(October 5, 2011) - Cobb/Glimkin finish the cleric and escort the recused dwarves out, while the rest of the group engages the rest of the dark elves at the door. A long battle ensues and the group gets out.

Werebears walk into town and Brimstone (the leader introduces himself).

We work out a plan to join forces and travel to the Old Dwarven Ruin together (Dwarven Spire)

(August 8, 2012)

We are ambushed and battle generally goes bad, though we all survive. Sequoia used an illusion to trick the wearbears into an explosion trap.

Returned to Dagger Falls and Randel helps us learn one of the werebears is a doppleganger

We interrogated the doppleganger and found out a lot of information (whether to believe or not is another thing)
Sequoia is a female (possible dark elf) assasin from Tilerton
Works with dopplegangers
Others in group were sold into slavery to dark elves
They enter into the underdark through a keep that only people with a valid reason are allowed to pass (slave dealers)

Found stuff on doppleganger:
Found a scroll
Amulet of Non-detection (given to Avium)
+1 Silver Long sword
+2 Bracers
Teleport scroll which takes you to a specific location in the underdark

(October 17, 2012) - 2 sessions prior were canceled

Viet, still not freed from his collar.

We decided to try to make our way to the same building we teleported into and teleport Viet back home.

Glimkin tried to scout out path in the form of a large spider. There were dark elves hiding, found an injured dwarfen female slave named Darla Ironmountain. Flew back in form of bat with Darla in the bag of holding. Krunk healed her.

We snuck out as a group, but found the building wanted to teleport from, crawling with dark elves, spiders, and driders.

We changed plans and decided to leave through the gate towards the Dark Elf city.

A short ways out we teleported Viet and Darla back to the dwarven clan, in the mountains.

We walked about an hour and encoutered a stone bridge over a gorge covered by an illusion of a prismatic wall. Flew under and Krunk killed the guards with a cone of cold.

Another 1 hour we came to a stragely lit domed temple. Anti-magic removed Glimkin's shape change. Had potions that blow up, but also allow quick travel over stone.

Another 1 hour we came to an elevator controlled by a hill giant named Brian and his dark elf keeper. We defeated the dark elf with ease.

We caught up with Rose and her 6 dark elf guards shortly later, fought them and freed Rose. We picked up dark elves stuff which included documents written largely in drow/undercommon.

We decided to journey back to see if we could take Brian the Hill Giant with us when we left, as it was unlikely he was going to be able to survive. But on the way back we encountered a group of driders and a dark elf at domed temple room with the anti-magic aura around it. We should have used stealth to check out the room, but the group basically decided to charge instead. Solaris charged in followed by Blitzkrieg who tried to save her. Krunk tried to turn into a green dragon and tried to threaten them as much as possible. Glimkin jumped on the dome and was able to hit one of them a couple times with his staff. Scarlet the dark elf assassin was amoung them and we managed to kill her, but not without Solaris dieing as well. Krunk disappeared during the battle and was no where to be found.
