Wasteland Campaign

Jungle Japes

Saturday group: 4/2/16

In-game date: 12/28-1/1

They come across a skull-like cavern and sleep in a hole. Gullycloak warps away to sleep in town. During the night, a woman attacks Grimsbone with a barrage of arrows. After being threatened by Grimsbone's throbbing cock, she runs away across the treetops. Grimsboner grapples the woman and slams her into the branches. Betsy wakes up and recognizes the woman as Lazar. She goes back to sleep. Harsk, Betsy, and Grimsbone get stabbed and die horribly.

 

Back in Silotown, Gullycloak meets Roren and Reyes, who are from the North Kingdom. They pop back, after being filled in on the situation. They try to make their way back to Harsk, Betsy, and Grimsbone, because Gullycloak thinks something is wrong. Deftly avoiding tornadoes, they head over. They come across swarms of army ants and a t-rex. Roren manages to put the t-rex to sleep and it gets devoured by army ants. The champion controlling the t-rex flees, knowing that his protection is gone. Reyes masterfully jumps the gorge, and Gullycloak makes it across as well. 

 

TL;DR Harsk, Grimsbone, and Betsy get killed by Lazar as Dale, Hatter, and Kreg wander off into the forest again. Gullycloak meets Roren and Reyes. Temporary clash with Gemini, another champion.

The group walks into a room, characters switch out through the portal. Lightning is crackling throughout the room. Razzo and Dakota fall down, but Dakota gets picked up by an Elemental that Kia summoned, revealing that Ismarck was just a disguise. Hiita slips down as well, Bibwit and Dakota lasso her up. They move into the next room with tons of suits of armor on horse statues. The suits of armor gangstomp Fenrir and the group tries to rescue him as he summons the elevator. After a lot of fighting and ghost capturing, the group prevails. Razzo farts in the elevator. The elevator starts talking to them and they see miles of sea. Once they go down, they start exploring the maze and get stuff.

Big Ass Worm and a Balor

Wednesday Group: 3/16/16
In game date: beginning of 1/9-night of 1/9

As the group comes up on the train, a giant neothelid attacks the group. As the group manages to make it into the train, Garth and Wayne get left behind as he teleports away just before being devoured. As they get to the ocean, they meet a female orc (Slagtusk), an aasimar (Orin) plagued by some spirit, and a fighter with some bites on his neck (Ismar). Razzo sucks a ghost away from Orin, the aasimar. Orin mentions that the King of the North sent him as the backup that Dakota requested.

As they come up on the tomb, a balor shows up. They realize it’s an illusion as fire is blazing around them. They open up the vault and see a map in the center of the room that seems to correspond to a grid on the floor. As Dakota tries to take a weapon from the suits of armor, they animate. The fight eventually concludes.

TL;DR
Get attacked by giant worm. Garth and Wayne get separated from the party and go missing. Slugtusk, Ismarck, and Orin join the quest for the submarine. They go down into a tunnel.

Revelations and Rewards

Wednesday Group: 3/16/16
In game date: 1/8- beginning of 1/9

Varia and Hiita, who returned to the Cyclowhip, hear whispers on the ridge. As the group begins to surface, the chatter grows and the party prepares for battle with the Guardians of Lore. Kia summons some frogs and Rozzo’s automaton attacks those stuck in the swarm. Mira summons a thundercloud and one of the Guardians shoots some dust covering the invisible party members. Wayne and Dakota corner some Guardians, Varia slashes some more and Garth does some Black Tentacles as Sanara stabs some in the kidneys. With teamwork, the party finishes the battle.

They hear Cobalt Lightning’s voice, and he talks about how the future is bleak and how he has seen the end of the world. He talks about the zombies and the Blue King. He mentioned that the engine told him of the future. They try to convince him to keep the Blue Priestess at bay.
Though he admits that he’s not happy about supporting the Silotown Saviors after they betrayed him, he claims that there are far worse dangers now. He offers to give them a ride on his fast transit machine to Greasetown.

At midnight, they hear a story of the Blue King’s history and Ocular Superiority. The 5 dragons created a book that would seal the king at the bottom of the sea. They divided the book into 6 parts to 10 mortal knights to prevent the Blue King’s revival. But they were attacked by legions of monsters. Over time, the knights were warped by the monsters. They were transformed into Ocular Superiority by the Elder. The group decides to head to Hopcourt to get on the Fast Transit machine to get to Greasetown to find the yellow submarine.

TL;DR
We trounced the Guardians of Lore (or at least some of them), find out Ocular Superiority’s tragic origins, remake a temporary “truce?” with Kohan. We prepare to head to Hopcourt to fast travel to Greasetown.

Saturday Group: 3/12/16
In game date: 12/28

Under the door comes a plume of gas. As Hawk falls out of a tree outside, the champion, Lace, attacks her (claiming revenge for stealing her meat pies). Kreg finds out that the gas is someone in gaseous form. He throws a bomb at her feet. Lace keeps trying to grapple Hawk, but Hawk keeps managing to dodge and insulting her. Dale wakes up from the explosion and is pretty angry. Hawk sweeps Lace off her feet. Dale shoots a fireball at the gaseous form, and blows up the door. The group approaches the dwarf and she convinces the party not to kill her.
Dale finally blows up Diamond, who falls out of the mist.

As they start searching for Hawk, arrows keep flying and Harsk starts burning down the forest to lessen Hawk’s ability to hide. Lace, now tied by Gullycloak, threatens to reveal Hawk’s deepest secret. Dale finally covers her with Glitterdust and blinds her, as she shrieks in surprise. Grimsbone throws a rock at her face, which deafens her as well. She tries to escape with some flight spell, but the group plinks her dead eventually. Dale falls from the sky, having destroyed her and falls into Grimsbone’s arms.

As the battle ends, and up roar comes from the sky as the group hears the announcement that three more of the champions have been defeated in this skirmish. The group immediately begins looting the bodies, as is their way.

TL; DR
The group meets a monk who introduces herself as Betsy. They kill Diamond and Hawk, who join the ranks of the dead champions along Lothar, Zapp, Diesel, and Ice.

Oodles of Oozes

Wednesday Group: 3/2/16
In game date: 1/8

The opening to the cave narrows down very quickly. Mira immediately licks the ooze dripping from the cave. They immediately begin to slip down the tunnel. Several of them fall down into the water, surrounded by some oozes. The group separates into different groups. A gelatinous cube comes from the other hallway’s body of water as Kia slides down, an Earth elemental stops her from colliding into the GC. Sanara shoots at the tentacle holding Mira. Several more people attempt to break Mira free. Razzo’s car, ECTO, comes flying down the path and lodges itself into the ooze. Dakota saves Mira and climbs up the ramp.
They wrap up the battle.

They go under the water and Sanara disables the trap on the door. Dakota and some Water Elementals lift the door open and the group passes. In the new room, they see blue, iridescent tubes and paintings. The tubes open up and some oozes come out to attack the party. Sanara, Garth, and Dakota take out one with a combination of bombs, fauchard strikes and fire spells. Kia starts singing a song and ECTO attempts to daze the ooze. After all the oozes are defeated, they loot the corpses and discuss their options.

After Fenrir tosses Mira into a pool, something begins to stir. Garth mazes the new ooze into another dimension. They come across a ghost who attacks them upon learning they only want Pemberton’s stuff. Dakota smashes a magical wine bottle over the ghost’s head. Razzo captures it in his arm container.

As they open the tomb, the room starts flooding and they start hearing voices in the chimney above. There are enemies above that seem to know a lot about the party and want to attack the party.

TL;DR The party fights a bunch of oozes and swim in the depths of the tomb and find the magical items. As they leave, they hear enemies making battle plans to attack the party.

Dale, Hatter, and Kreg start heading their way to the hall. Gullycloak tries to convince Lothar not to fight them, but he replies that he was going to kill them anyway. Gullycloak attempts to blind Lothar, but he shakes it off. Harsk kills Lothar and Zalla and the group considers sleeping for the night.

During the night, someone tries to get in with various lame tactics. She throws some discs at Gullycloak, trying to poison him. The bomb drops and kills a few cavemen as the door pops open. They close it, but it opens up eventually as they make a plan. Immediately, another bomb drops and kills more cavemen. Harsk goes out and kills Zapp, but gets filled with arrows.

Frustrations in the Forest

Saturday Group: 2/20/16
In game: 12/28

Luca and Dale wander off into the dense jungle and stumble across a bunch of gibbons who try to kill them. A half-orc, Lothar, tells them to follow him. They stumble across the party still in combat with Ice. A hat falls on the tree and on Ice, and both of them begin changing shape into snake tail. Lothar and Dale get onto the ice. Lothar moves into the trees, Dale sprains his right wrist and Luca slips on the ice. Grimsbone kills a swarm as Gullycloak struggles to get out. The Treant grapples the Hatter with its snake tail. Ice begins to swirl his hands and summons some lightning that strikes Dale. The Hatter throws a hat on the tree, which seems to have glued the tree in place. Lothar tries to get on the ice and breaks his leg. Dale dimension doors behind Harsk, planning to heal him. Gullycloak gets bit by the swarm.

Grimsbone breaks a rib as he tries to get up. The Hatter is crushed by the Snake-Treant and falls unconscious. Dale gets hit with more lightning and Lothar drinks a potion of fly to move closer. Dale heals Harsk so that he becomes conscious. Gullycloak jumps onto Grimsbone’s back. The tree is still stuck in his own goo and animates some trees near Gullycloak. Ice breathes a cone of cold. Harsk throws his thundering battleaxe at Ice, and it sticks in his back. Lothar attempts to charge Ice, and his ax bounces off the barrier. Luca shoots him and Dale fires off a few scorching rays and Ice finally falls, dissipating the ice and the swarms. The Treant sadly attacks Harsk, mourning his only friend, and Harsk goes down. Lothar comes in and delivers the finishing blow to the Treant. The light of dusk falls over them.

The cloud tvs erupt with surprise as they mention Turbo, a former Champion, (Lothar) has turned against Ice. Lothar begins scalping Ice and they loot his corpse.

They head on down to Harkenwold and see a vine bridge and some Neanderthal-like creatures and some tigers on the other side. They ask for things as passage. Hatter throws some hats on the cavemen, and they sprout tentacles and beaks. Some tigers rush the Hatter and the party rushes to his aid. Luca shoots at the tigers and Hatter puts some hats on the tigers. A soapy bubble encases Hatter and Gullycloak. The tentacle guys rush to hit Gullycloak and Grimsbone, but their tentacles can’t grapple. Dale dimension doors and pushes a caveman into the gorge to his watery grave. Lothar throws an axe into the tiger. The tigers just rip Hatter to shreds. Harsk slices a tiger in two and kills the two tentacle cavemen. Luca shoots the dagger out of another caveman’s hand, preventing him from slicing through the rope. Grimsbone grapples the tiger, and Gullycloak heals the Hatter. The Hatter throws a hat on the final caveman, and he becomes incredibly attractive. The Hatter and the caveman start making out, and Dale joins in. Lothar cuts the grappled tiger with his axe and it’s finally dead. Gullycloak angrily yells at Harsk for killing the tiger when he was specifically asked not to.

They ask Lug about what’s ahead. He tells them that they have to wear necklaces, but not everyone takes a necklace. They head on to Harkenwold and hear a siren, House Mancini and Diamond, a female elf, has been released into the jungle as a Champion. They are approached by more cavemen and tigers. They are offered a meal in their honor. Hatter, Dale, and Lug go off to fuck in Lug’s hut. Zalla offers them food and asks for many stories in exchange. The chairs collapse underneath them and the food is tainted. These people seem hellbent on annoying the party. Lothar hears a quip about his sexual prowess and becomes incredibly angry and possessed. In the meantime, some true debauchery is happening in Lug’s hut. Gullycloak attempts to blind Zalla, but it doesn’t seem to be doing anything. Luca and Harsk get covered in trash. Grimsbone smashes Lothar with a club, sending him flying into Zalla’s arms as Lothar confesses his love for Zalla. Zalla screams in sadness and proclaims that the party will die. Her bones shatter as Gullycloak points at her. Harsk kills some cavemen and Luca attempts to run. Some cavemen swarm the party in the various areas. Zalla breathes into Lothar’s face and his eyes open as he is brought back to life.

Once Again, Time is of the Essence!
And a car chase!

Wednesday Group: 2/24/16
In game date: midnight of 1/5 to evening of 1/5

Exhausted from the past day’s events, they sleep. In the morning, they find out that a LOT of people want to talk to them. Fenrir goes looking for Ocular Superiority. They learn that Brother Ferris headed north three days ago. The dwarf comes bearing a message. A noble from the Western mountains, and it’s being controlled by dragons. He tells them not to go North and stop unsealing the pages. The Elder comes in next. He tells them the Blue Priestess is heading towards the Inner Seas. There are several tombs for the nobles which have magic items, some of which can help them breathe underwater.

Tomb of Prince Abraham, he was able to breathe underwater. Between Bloody Cross and Sunshine Treetop Mountain. An oasis with 14 palm trees. Dive down and it will be down there.

Between Trefland and West Hopcourt, there is a cave and a tunnel. Possessions of Lord Pemberwald.

Much further north, tomb of Admiral Ephelia. Big crab statue. Plate armor of the deep. Near Requiem.

Not far from Shakerlow, marble quarry in the sand. There will be a library of Potion Bill. Probably potions there.

In the cliff-face, near Greasetown, Kidneypod the band possessed a travelling device that can go underwater. Most are guarded.

The Blue Priestess is already on her way. She also is riding in an Eldritch machine golem. There is a life force bound to the golem and will keep it from moving. One of the orbs will be able to be taken. There are entrances into the golem. She is the most powerful cleric to walk the wastes. She’s two weeks out at most. She has to cross three rivers and cross Sunshine Treetop Mountain. It would be four days in the Cyclowhip.

Next guy that comes in from the Fire Guild, Johnny the Boy. He thanks them for their service. Varia kills him for the crime of slaughtering her people.

The next guy, Frost, is here at the order of Ziggy. Frost has a box that can display images. A lot of rapid images including the Elder with a woman of red hair, Ziggy, and a blue-tinged elf. We see Ziggy in Rennin and hear about songs of the tombs. Ziggy tells Frost to tell them of the greatest treasure that they didn’t tell the Elder about. A guy with leather armor shooting beams of bright light and his throat is slit. It pans to a specific place, two days west of Death’s Sweet Embrace. A tomb is there, of Ashani, who supposedly has magic items that protect his mind. They see an inverted Blue Sign and the Protean seeming to smile about it. For some reason, Ziggy is keeping info from the Elder because he thinks the Elder’s plan is not as good.

Chickenbone asks for some hush money to not talk about Johhny the Boy. He also lets them know that everything is going alright in town.

The final person, the Cyclops who helped Ocular Superiority, says that Ocular Superiority is asking for certain demands. He wants worshippers, the pages, and anything that helps protect the pages, food. He wants us to find minotaurs and to create an anti-teleportation device.

They head to the Tomb of Lord Pemberwald. It’s NE from Silotown and then NW from there to Sunshine Treetop Village. Then further NW is the tomb of Admiral Ephelia. Then we’ll be a day or two from the ocean. As they head out, they see a Huge red dragon heading their way. But suddenly, a powerful crosswind knocks the dragon way off course. Though they get ready to rest for the night, the dragon is likely not far behind.
