Session Eleven "Explosive Encounter"
(Much of this session was lost when my computer died. To follow is a rough outline of what I recall. This post will be updated if my players find any valid information was not included.
The party journeys onward toward Wrythak Keep where they intend to rescue the Golem Mage Rictus from Jasper. The golem spoke of answers the last time the party encountered him. Some answers would be nice about now.
Along the way the group encounters a new form of tainted. A highly volatile undead construct presumably created by Laurel and her cult. The creature is a handful while its alive, and when it dies it explodes with such force that it sprays ichor everywhere. During this ecounter a small wriggling piece of the black ooze wriggles its way into Ooyukis armor. Has the troll become tainted?
Further, it is revealed that Dian’Dalee (Dariets Niece) has an unearthly talent with music and an equally charming connection with creatures of the Fae. She seems highly embarrased when discovered but she has not yet elaborated on the meaning behind her abilities. So far the only thing known for sure about the young elf woman is that she is very beutiful and seems to have eyes for Mortull.
We leave the scene with the party in the woods. They find themselves face to face with a pack of snarling Wolfen. Leading the pack is none other than Athesial.
