Time past – 1 day
The session began with the Order of The Dawn getting news from Stewart. He informed the order that to the east, a large army of 100+ skeletal cultist were on the move toward bendpoint and could not be more then a day out. This caused a bit of conflict as the reforming lich was around a day north of the city. Making a hard choice, the Ram ordered that Bend Point would be evaculated and that the citizens would be sent south to Wrieth. Packing up everything important to the order, the group set forth north waving goodbye to thier soon to fall city in hopes of cutting the head off of the snake.

They arrived at the location of Alandra’s scrying to find an abondon homestead with obvious signs of struggle inside. Much like before, the order found that the Ferromosis cult was in a cavern carved beneath an old abandon Well. They Quickly dived down and began to fight off the cultist of the entrance before entering into the cult’s massive research room…..

Sesion 23

Days passed- 6

Rushing to Lord O’neal’s aid the party headed north toward the scryed location. Along the way the traveling was very rough with it raining for most of the day. After a few days however the party made it to EagleRock. Once there, they found that the town was recovering but slowly. The Party continued until comming to a small hunting lodge that had evidence of murder, thoguh it was from weeks prior. After a bit of searching, the party found that the well led to an underground hallway with several undead that had be dispatched already. Without thinking, Douglasslaunched a fireball down the hallway destroying the corpses and all loot they had on them. At the end of the hall was a door that led into a room with an aura that destroyed all creatures who were not undead. Sir Lane rushed in and found out about the aura the hard way. After a bit of thinking, the party was inrupted but a large skeletal undead who taunted them from inside the barrier.

In an attempt to get him to face the party, they revealed that they were in pocession of the Skull of Ferromosis. This delighted the creature but he refused to go any farther without evidence. The undead also made threats of slaying the parties newly formed town, Bend Point.

They then returned to O’neal where the party contacted the McTiers who while reluctant to use necromancy again, did so to create the party a set of rings. These rings masked the parties aura as undead allowing them to move through the aura. Catching the undead off guard, the group attacked and were barely able to overcome the undeads awesome might. After searching the cults base they did run accross a statue of Ferrumosis that had the legs are arms colored in as if to say the cult was in pocession of them. In addition the party found a transmutation circle used to create a Liche and several useful books of Ferrumosis, Indestructable Phalactries, Liche creations, Soul bindings, and other undead dieties. As well as thier loot, the group freed Lord O’neal and brought him back to O’neal. Once there the party rested and warmed the Highhillers of the threat to attack the town made by the Cult Leader. Douglass also contacted Tabit to sell Items aquired in the dungeon and while selling goods let it slip that the good came from a cult worshipping Ferrumosis that the party had just slain.

Wait awaits our heroes next !?1?!

Lord Wrieth requested an audience with the ORder to discuss thier knighthood and as to if they could continue onward.
The Letter from Lavion was an invitation to The kings funeral, the king was dead.

After a bit of discussion over who would be named the next king, the party headed south to Wrieth where they met with Lord Wrieth. He was in a rush as he was preparing to meet with others to discuss King Wrieth’s passing. He explained that he had staved off charges of Treason from the order over thier “angel” business and that the only conciequence to thier actions was that thier guild master would be lowered to the Rank of Knight and that a new order master would be brought in. In addition they were all free to leave thier vows if they so chose, and that the order would not longer be under Lord Wrieth’s command. Dogface chose to leave the order, Renaming himself, Douglass.

After a bit of shopping in [[Wrieth}} The party continued south to Lavion Where they witnessed King Lavion’s funeral which was suprissingly very religious. Afterwards there was tons of food and sweets while several nobles came up to greet the order. Alandra was taken by the mages guild to await punishment. Once inside she was calmly sat down and questioned. They transformed her into a wyrm and then removed he wings before revoking her access to the guild and guild facilities, While here she gave then the circlet of Tiamat but luckily Pop was able to steal it back for her.

While this happened the PArty was delivered a mysterious Artifact that was willed to them by conith. The box was loaded down with magical ruins to hold the box and its contents locked down as well to prevent it from being teleported in anyway. The order decided to do some more research on the box from back at Bend Point.

Once there they were able to temporaily remove the arcane locks on the device allowing them to look inside. Inside the box was a Emerald green Skull about the size of an elven child’s skull that began to scream causing only to be quickly sealed again. Lane and Trog both reconized a similar bone on the belt of Lord O’neal and so the party headed north to O’neal.

Once in O’neal, they group was met by Sarloth who explained that Lord O’nal and his wife were missing and needed to be located. He explained that the Bard “Slick” had a ring that could do so and that Khalia may be able to locate him.

Once at the herd of Bison, Trog steathed up to the largest one he could find and mounted it. It fought with the gnome fiercely by was ultimately tamed, joining Trog on his quest. Alandra offered to ride back with Trog he however insisted she go aheard.

On the ride back Trog was attacked and almost robbed by Feyborne druids. Ultimately they offered to negotionate enchantments for the price of metal objects the Gnome had on him. He agreed gaining several new enchantments. Before long the rest of the party located the mount and entered making trades. Sir Lane was kicked out of the Feyborne’s burrow after giving them a longsword for free and then trying to take it back. Dogface got incredibly upset feeling as though the Feyborne were ripping them off before eventually leaving.

The Party continued after a short nap toward the Ciatore city, once there they were Warmly greated by the artistic race that took kindly to them. In a matter of no time they were brought to the Sleeping god, Safry. Once there the party was told of a great battle between both Safry and Maelriel that ended with Maelriel being eaten and vowing to kill Safry from the inside.

With rage in his voice the Genie agreed and vanished, to be forever chased by Khalia.

Maelriel Nodded to the party and spoke, It was strange though to them that he could speak with them directly unlike Anachiel and Barachiel. Sit Lane explained that this had to do with the Quire inwhich the Dieties belonged to and he agreed. Without farther a do, Maelriel transported the party to Wrieth. Once there they rushed to speak with Lord Wrieth only to find out that thier guild was doing well and that a suprised awaited them when they got home. At this time Sir Trog decided that it was time to explain to him that they’d been on a mythic quest for Barachiel.

Time past: 2 days

The Session began with the Angel Anachiel swearing to head to Mt Daye to join Barchiel in preserving the bubble. After a few short goodbye’s to Quinn the party headed north as advised by Anachiel, Quinn to the east. Quinn only looked back for a moment to see Natalia, who smile and winked at the Paragon.

The first day’s going was rough and the party soon found out that they were short on food. Azel was able to rustle up a bit of rough tubers that were filling but not good. The next morning Alandra and Natalia headed out to scout ahead with her in dragon form. The two came across a Ciatore eating one of the Oniglio. Alandra roared, scaring the Ciatore off before grabbing the Oniglio and bringing it back to camp. The rest of the Order of The Dawn refused to eat a sentient creature leaving the whole thing to Alandra who happily consumed the Rabbit.

The next day the party located a small mill where a Oniglio came out and spoke with them in Gnomish. Naturally it upset dogface that he only had Sir Stills to talk with but the party moved right along. They learned that the Oniglio worshiped Maelriel and viewed him as a large wingged rabbit with blue fur. They also learned of a church to him in town and headed down to see it. The church itself with a Casino which the high priest claimed the angel was not real. Not giving up the party asked around and found that the Ciatore may know more and that there was a city of them to the east. and so the party left Cena in search of the Ciatore.

The Harvest Guard

The First group of soldiers the Dawn contacted was Sir Macarnold‘s Harvest Guard.

They asked for a place to rest and were granted it by Sir Stills. However the situation got tense we Sir Dogface bartered with them for a set of siege weapons, as crafts men they knew of someone able to craft such weapons. All the two wanted in return was to build a small shrine to Khalia so that other pilgrims on thier way to The Jewel of the Gods may stop and praise. Naturally Sir Lane was opposed to this but eventually gave into logic…. begrudgingly.

The day before the battle The Knights gathered each leader to form thier battle stategies. The basic plan was that thet order of the Dawn would rush into the throne room to attack Glintooth directly while the armies outside fought and killed the Kobold. It was at this time that The Egg Shaper was brought into the room in handcuffs.

The Egg Shaper, as always was both respectful and calm. He quickly offered up all the information he could. After wards when questioned why he’d give all this up willingingly he expressed a sarrow towards his creations. As he put it in return for his release, he would see thier destruction, repenting for this creation in the first place.

The Battle

Once the plans were in place the Order of the Dawn marched with the army to the outskirts of Nezira, waiting. The plan was for the Order to teleport in, defeat the Kobold Leader and then send out the message to the army before joining the fight outside.

The ride back to Bend point was a relaxed walk in the park with many members still feeling the effects from the festivies of the previous night. When closer to the guild house, the party noticed something horrific, the Castle was burning. In a panic they rushed towards the Keep to find Lady Patricia sitting a top a pile of corspes, smiling, Around her they could clearing see Quin and Roberts corpses, as well Aiden’s dismember head sat a top a spike. Before anyquestiosn could be asked, Dogface Launched a Fireball at Patricia, who’s armor Absorbed the damages instantly. She laughed removing a contact to reveal a large B burned into her Iris. “Who the Fuck do you think my dad is” She yelled drawing her weapons and charging. She mocked the Order as she cut them down one by one.
