Episode 6: The Fallen Kingdom

(Kivan Story) King Coran is rumored to be dead, could this spell out the end for Mulhorand?

Part 1: The party arrived in Mulhorand after losing Zelante and attempting to rescue his mother. They found an ruined keep where Kivan knew the king had been hiding, but all they found were charred corpses and a confused Mul. The Mul shortly after recalled where the king had gone, to the city of Gwaren on the western shore of the island and they set out to find the king there. As they traveled they were attacked by a group of Tazok’s thugs and emerged victorious, but the victory was soon followed by distress as they heard somebody calling for help from within the nearby forest. Upon arriving at the scene, Orn leaped onto a raft in the middle of a swamp that held a woman who looked in very poor condition, she turned to Orn and told him it was a trap and suddenly the group was set upon by owlbears. The party barely managed to survive and attempted to rest afterwards, but were set upon by horribly weak robbers, which the party swiftly dealt with.

Part 1.5: The group sat to feast with King Coran after learning of Tazok’s plan to start conquering the rest of the world, heroes need to eat. However, the food at the feast was poisoned. Coran was not affected, however the queen fell prey to the toxins. As the poison set in, a band of mercenaries working for Tazok broke into the room, the party was able to fend them off, despite being weakened from the poison they also consumed. The king identified the venom and instructed the heroes to travel to the northern mountains to obtain the cure, the Panacea Fruit that only grew there.

Part 2: The group joined King Coran as they traveled to the northern mountains, Mons Lurius. They were attacked by some of the tribals, but managed to defeat them and climb the rest of the way to the top. At the top they were forced to battle the guardian of the peak. The battle was close, but the hero’s prevailed and were able to obtain the Panacea Fruit

Part 3: The group made their way back down the mountain and back to the Rebel Base. The queen was successfully restored to health. During a celebration the next day, Gestahl, whom they had met on the way down the mountain, revealed himself to truly be Kefka. The group fought his minions and were able to protect King Coran, however Kefka escaped. Afterwards the king instructed them to go to the Kingdom of Damcyan and protect the crystal. When they arrived, the castle was under siege and the party helped fight off a group of the enemies sneaking into the tower they landed on. They reported to Edgar Roni Figaro, king of the castle and he showed them the true power of the castle, its ability to move underground.

Episode 4: Ships, Boats, and Flying Boats

The heroes flagged down the ship and came aboard, only to be captured by a small army of orcs who had captured the ship from its previous crew. Showing their fierceness, they abandoned the boat they were brought up to the ship on and its helpless oarman. The group was bound and put belowdeck, but promptly escaped and laid waste to the orcs on the deck, escaping the ship shortly before the other orcs were able to sink the ship. They were able to make it to the small boat thanks to the oarman, who had been hit with an arrow, however he died, sparking a sadness in Orn.
They traveled toward the Kingdom of Baron in the boat and eventually caught sight of land, however they were assailed by sea zombies. The group was able to fend them off and made it into a cave leading further inland, where a crazy old man attacked them.
After slaying the old man the group proceeded through the cave, with the only problem being Orn rolling into the underground river, however they regrouped outside the cave. In the small town of Freeport, the group found a dwarf pilot that was willing to take them to Castle Baron in his airship at no cost, however once in the hangar, the heroes found there to be soldiers of Baron blocking the way in, they slew them and made their way onto the ship.

The heroes had failed to protect the Crystal of Water from being stolen by General Leo and had begun to help the kingdom recover. During this time the leader of Mysidia, Tellah returned from his travels. He was saddened, but did not seem very surprised. He found the heroes and spoke to them immediately, telling them that something was amiss in the Kingdom of Baron. He told the heroes that they must go to Baron and find out what was going on.
Tellah told them of a ferryman who would be willing to take them to the island Baron was located on. The group met up with him and they began their voyage, unfortunately they were ambushed by crabmen and the ship crashed on a deserted island. The island was not as deserted as it seemed though, there were beautiful women there that turned out to be deadly dryads.

Episode 2: Of Beholders and Knights

The adventurers were asked by King Kareth to travel to the temple of Bahamut they had initially set out for, before the attack by Garland, they had need of the heroes’ assistance. It took the heroes only a few hours to reach the temple where it was requested that they be teleported to the Kingdom of Mysidia and look into things there as all contact had been lost with them for a few days.
The heroes agreed to help, however something happened during the teleportation and they ended up in some unknown place immediately set upon by a beholder. They fought the beast off and waited a few hours before they were suddenly teleported again, this time successfully to Mysidia. Apparently some of the mages there had noticed the failed teleport and found their locations and saved them.
All was not well in the kingdom though, the city was under attack by the Kingdom of Baron, completely unprovoked. The mages requested the heroes protect the crystal the kingdom guarded, shortly before they were slain by invaders. The heroes battled their way to the crystal chamber and were confronted by General Leo Cristophe. He offered to spare them should they just hand over the crystal, but the heroes stood vigilant. The battle was fierce and the heroes emerged victorious, however Leo seemed unharmed after the battle and was able to capture the crystal. As he left, he told the group they fought valiantly and even threw a worn out crystal to Ember, telling her to use it well.

Episode 1: Your Princess is in My Castle

A group of five intrepid adventurers were assembled in the hall of King Kareth, ruler of all the Kingdom of Coneria to recieve orders to escort the King’s most precious treasure to the temple of Bahamut. Not long after the wagon set off from Coneria, an ambush waylaid the party and the female driver of the wagon was kidnapped with all of the valuable gold left behind. The heroes quickly discovered that the gold was all fake and that the real treasure was the driver herself. A ring found at the scene of the crime revealed her to be the Princess Sarah.

The heroes tracked the kidnappers to a seemingly abandoned castle where they were attacked by insidious traps and goblin kidnappers with a trained jelly that tried to consume the heroes in its acidic embrace. The next room revealed a tragic sight. Princess Sarah was unconscious at an altar, ready for some terrible machinations at the hand of a huge human named Garland. He attacked the heroes as they surrounded his altar in an attempt to save the princess. It was a hard and trying fight as several heroes fell to Garland’s gargantuan sword. Garland eventually fled when the heroes seemed to gain the upper hand thanks to the clever healing skills of the party and the strong martial prowess of Krusk. Princess Sarah was returned to life and used her powerful town portal spell to send the survivors back to the capital to receive their reward and next quest from King Kareth.

CRYSTAL POINT: Orn Silit leaping dramatically in the way of a fatal blow to Krusk and falling himself to guarantee the party’s success.
