Bridge to Thistletop
Trapped between a hard and a wet place

No Escape

After the bridge to safety was blocked by Tangletooth the Firepelt Cougar and Gogmurt the Goblin Druid, the party quickly realized it may have bit off more than they could chew. However, with thoughts of their friends in Sandpoint formost in their minds, they refused to give up.

Gogmurt

With sword, wizardry, bow, and fang, the group fought off the goblins guarding the walls of Thistletop- and quickly formed a line against the onrushing pair on the bridge. Gogmurt entangled the party to restrict their movement, while Silas stunned the goblins with a well placed color spray, and the battle was joined in earnest.

As blows rained down, and Gogmurt threw fire, the party became aware of the hoots of a warband of goblins. That slowly, but continually, were getting louder- and closer.

Time was running out.

As the druid pulled her scythe out of the last remaining Thistletop gate guard, the party turned to remove their last obstacles to safety. Though Tangletooth was full of health, the animal finally succumbed to the desperate attack. However, this was not without loss. The fighter collapsed on the bridge after suffering many grievous wounds. In an effort to lay the fell druid low, Silas stepped onto the rickety bridge- which set off the trap.

With a loud snap, the western ropes pulled free from their posts, and the bridge slats dangled from the eastern rope. Everyone managed to hold on or jump back to solid land- except for the fighter.

Huon Matthews bravely jumped off the cliff to save the fighter- but not before firing off an arrow, impaling Gogmurt between the eyes.

The druid and Silas crossed the bridge, climbed down to the shore, and attempted to save their party members, yet were too late. Their sacrifices shall never be forgotten.

Loot

New Beginnings

Ameiko kaijitsu

Greetings

Meeting up in the warmth of the Rusty Dragon Inn owned by ameiko-kaijutsu, the party meets some new members:

  • Lirael is a mercenary from Kyonin- she heard tales of a group that needed a new fighter and a strong arm.
  • Luther Gibbs was inspired by songs of the glorious, elegant paladin of Sandpoint, and wanted to carry on the story where it was left off.

Howling Hole

Riding back out to the briars in front of Thistletop, the group peers inside the Howling Hole. They spy a bunyip, who has been pleased to make this its lair. Nex casts spider climb on herself, lowers down to the water, and calms the bunyip and convinces it to swim away. That leaves her free to pilfer the lair, sifting through countless bones of goblins and other victims in the water:

  • 100 gp
  • deep green spinel worth 100 gp
  • rusted kukri with an intact violet garnet in its hilt (worth 500 gp)
  • rotted quiver containing three +1 arrows
  • bone wand of shield with 9 charges remaining.

Thistletop

After this, the group sneaks back into Thistletop. A quick arrow to a sleeping Goblin sentry takes out the best chance of alarm. Moving further into the fortress, the group comes upon a group of 6 sleeping goblins in a barracks. Nex and Lirael coup de grace them, barely making the slightest sound. After dispatching the large group, they fight 4 goblin dogs pawing at the main door, and bump into a pickle storage room.. where there are 2 goblin commandos playing cards.

Silas casts web, locking everyone in place. ripnugget is trapped- calls out for nualia and bruthazmus.

Further Into Thistletop
Goblins were only the tip of the iceberg

Lamashtu

As the party descends into the heart of Thistletop, they come upon an ornate doorway. The elaborate designs on the thick doors are dripping with evil, and it’s very clear that this leads to an evil shrine to the Goddess of monsters, Lamashthu.

Temple of Lamashthu

Upon arriving, there is a long table covered with ashes- the party later discovers this to be the remains of Father Tobyn, Nualia’s adoptive father. Looming from the darkness behind, a huge statue of Lamashthu glowers, wielding two kukris in each hand. Out of the corners spring two dire Yeth Hounds, sent as a gift from Nualia’s patron. One goes for Silas, and bites hard. The second hound bays loudly in front of Sie Deen and Grim+Heidi, both of whom run away in panic. Dan’s doing tons of damage, but seems like the Yeth Hounds are shrugging off most of it.

Grim trips the yeth hound and knocks him prone. Silas takes aim with his long bow and begins firing. Sie Deen runs away from the second yeth hound’s bay, and takes a sinister bite from the other.

Grim rips out the first yeth hounds jowls. The party surrounds the last of the Yeth Hounds, and whittle it down. Dan aims and kills the last with a decisive strike through its eye.

Campaign Journal of Silas

We are in a feast hall. Last time, we got owned. We’re back to kill nualia, the bad girl who is worshipping this evil goddess.

We crack open the door to a small side room, and see pillows and shit. We wander up to a bunch of goblins humping. We stunned a bunch of wives and started with the murdering. We finally killed the bugbear bruthazmus and he got ripped up.

We found some goblin babies and sundown fed them.

We found some asshole mercenary named orik. His life now belongs to us.

We also found an everburning torch from Noalia’s room.

WE killed a buncha bitches and then went downstairs.

Then the wizard was totally useful and we killed nualia anyway. Only after Dan saved Sie Deen from a brutal completely OP trap.

Cleaning out Thistletop

The party defeats three shadows, then wipe out a Hermit Crab to find:

  • 3,500 sp
  • 630 gp
  • 40 precious stones worth 10 gp each
  • jade amulet of natural armor +1

The greatest treasure in the room is the ancient helm. The helm isn’t solid gold (some of it is bronze) but it’s still worth 3,000 gp if the PCs can haul its 300-pound weight up out of the hole it’s been resting in for hundreds of years.
