Disaster in the Library
Season 1, Episode 5

Starring
Flypps, Lantern, Tyran’kai, Sarac, Jasper

Recap
After a brief stop in Greymere, Flypps, Lantern, and Tyran’kai rendezvous with Sarac and Jasper in the city of Acanthus. Known for its great library, Lantern surmised that it would be the best place to search for more information about the mysterious black liquid. Sarac acquires traveling papers after being deputized by Flypps.

The group arrives at the library to find a disturbing scene – everyone is dead, torn apart by some beast. Sarac finds that one of the librarians in the foyer is still barely alive, and manages to stabilize him. He explains that a drakkenvar, a beast from stories designed to frighten children, has attacked the library and killed everyone. The group discovers that the beast has also destroyed the sections of the library containing tomes related to their search, save for one tome that describes a similar creature as a servant of Nahkriin the Boar, deity of Vengeance.

After a brief battle, the group kills the beast, which transforms into a suit of armor. Sarac takes the armor to the Temple of Koore to have it cleansed – meanwhile, Jasper meets with one of the priests to atone for his sins. The group is able to conduct more research in the meantime, discovering only a few scant references to something known as the “Bile of Esperatch.”

Starring
Flypps, Lantern, Tyran’kai

Recap
On their way to the city of Acanthus, the group stops to rest and resupply at the village of Greymere, where a festival is being held in honor of Lord Jarus’s recent appointment. The group runs into the Black Knight and later meets Sir Roderick of Harrowhelm, a knight that is competing in the tournaments. Tyran’kai does not take a liking to him and enters the melee tournament. Flypps enters as a judge in the pie-eating contest and receives pies as payment. Lantern and Tyran’kai meanwhile head to the blacksmith to have new weaponry forged.

In the morning Tyran’kai heads to the blacksmith before the joust and retrieves his new weaponry – a giant hook, similar to a fishhook about 1-1.5 ft in length. The group watches the joust, where they see the Black Knight defeat several participants, only to be defeated by Sir Roderick. The other combatants include Lord Kargath of Durnwald, Sir Thelial of Oakleaf, Lord Nelson of Morgrave, Dame Alessandra of Bankcroft, Lady Sylvera of Silfwind, Sir Kudzen of Dorheus, Count Alfonse of Delmar, Dame Brunhilde the Shield-Matron, Lord Greysill of Twicksbury, and Grandmaster Sintare of the Currinwold.

After the joust, Tyran’kai prepares for the melee tournament. There is some debate to whether his weapons are allowed, but Lord Jarus is amused and lets him keep the hook. He is first matched against the Black Knight. Tyran’kai reveals his strategy of catching the hook onto armor and then using rope try and trip or pull the target. Sadly, Tyran’kai is defeated, but the Black Knight is impressed with his fighting skills and offers her aid should he ever need it.

Recap
The heroes continue their search for answers regarding the increase in goblin activity and weird alchemical experimentation. This takes them to the city of Markoth. Due to the local populace’s distrust of runeforged, they are not welcome in the city – Lantern mingles outside the city with a merchant camp of fellow runeforged.

While the rest of the party acquires traveling papers, Lantern meets Jingling, who explains that he can use the sewer system to enter the city and gain access to the library. After being given a delver’s light, Lantern ventures through the sewers to the library. Along the way, he discovers that someone is also using the sewers to infiltrate the city.

The next morning, it is discovered that several merchants had been robbed during the night. The party regroups at the merchant camp and enters the sewers, where they discover a goblin raiding party hidden in a makeshift camp. They defeat the party, and collect a vial of black liquid that seems to be the center of the alchemical mystery. Tyran’kai retrieves a carnage dagger from the defeated leader, and the group learns of Jasper’s dealings with necromancy.
