Princes of the Apocalypse

Return to Feathergale
The party takes on Thurl Merosska

Following up on a lead given to them by a defected recruit from the air cult, the party set their sights on Feathergale Spire, suspecting that Thurl, the leader of the knights there, had one of the tokens they needed to pass the cults’ elemental gates.

After making a plan with the nearby group of aarakocra, it was decided that they would aid the party indirectly, by sending an air elemental to distract the knights at the spire’s pinnacle, while the party themselves entered from the bottom of the tower. Tiberius was passed off as a captive taken from the earth cult, and Rollo managed to fool the door guard with a heroic tale of his “capture,” giving them access to the tower.

From here, there was little nuance to their scheme; floor by floor, they fought their way up with sword and spell, though Rollo executed poetic justice on one cultist by dropping him out a window.

By the time they got to the top, Thurl was badly wounded, and two of his fellow knights had fallen before he’d finally slain the air elemental. He still had enough moxy to cast Haste on himself and nearly beat the tar out of the paladin with his greatsword. Tiberius hopped onto the knight’s giant vulture mount, and was promptly flown out over the abyss and thrown… but the aarakocra saved him.

Now the party has the token, as well as a stronghold with a cache of weapons guarded by their new friends!

Session 3

Heroes went into the next room, looting the gold and such around the statue (they later claimed that Larrakh must have fled with it all). Garrek claimed the dagger, but has neither examined it nor used it in combat.

In the room of moving stones, Larrakh used the boulders to great effect as cover, and spammed shield to protect from Garrek’s wand. Sadly, (warlock) used true strike twice and failed to get a shot off both times. Even so, Larrakh went bloodied and ran dry of almost all his spells, and successfully fled through the tunnel to the quarry. The PCs did not recover his trade bars, and so has no inkling of the plight of the Mirabar Delegation.

The party made a brief stop in the other chamber and fought the rats.

Following up on the names given by Braelin, pretty much all of the Believers have been taken into custody. They were able to convince the corrupt elders that Larrakh had been using them all along, and so they sold him out as best they could.

They sold a bunch of stuff. Vallivoe was laid up with a broken leg from trying to use the drained-dry wingwear. Rollo healed it with lay on hands.

Trying to track him down, the party found the recent graves, and paid a visit to Feathergale Spire, where they helped take down a manticore. They also talked with the local aarakocra, and have become quite suspicious of the knights. Even so, they accepted (leader’s) word that Larrakh had gone to Sacred Stone Monastery, and the knights even gave them a ride over.

Garrek stole the ring that (lady knight) rightfully won.
