The players decided to set their new adventure in the Lawful country of Iomecia, in the city of Aulkos. They heard about a dungeon opening up nearby, a religious conflict about to boil over, and a criminal sabotaging buildings and killing people in the slums.
First they investigated the dungeon. They came upon some mushroom-men pushing a dead giant meat snail into a cavern (basically a big hole in the ground). They first parlayed with and then later slayed those mushroom-men and their wild boar pets. They also found a crypt where they fought a group of skeletons. They decided to turn back at this point.
After this followed a series of events in which the party began investigating the killings in the slums, which turned out to be committed by a member of the thieves guild who had been turned into a wereboar. Za’zi snuck into the slums and actually managed to slay the wereboar and two thieves singlehandedly, but unfortunately was carted off by a guard into jail while the authorities investigated his claims. There Za’zi was assaulted by two corrupt guards who were also wereboars, but he managed to escape after retrieving his weapons. He went and found Aberguile, and they decided to hunt down the two wereboars guards who attacked Za’zi and massacred the town guard.
They tracked the beasts to the city gardens after being sent there by a traumatized woman who witnessed the creatures’ rampage, but Za’zi, who fought bravely, was killed in the battle with the second wereboar and several 2nd level thieves. Aberguile was also infected by porcothropy, but managed to survive the belladonna dose he took to cure the disease.
Aberguile then recruited a cactacae martial artist, Theo, who wanted to aid him in defeating the wereboar menace. They decided however to return to the dungeon in order to become more powerful before facing the boars, and avoid the thieves’ quarter in the meantime.
They returned to the dungeon and specifically to the area with the skeletons, where they opened a door and encountered an abuhuwah with a dagger buried in its chest:
They also found a secret door which led to a cave below the dungeon where they fought several quil and a cadaver, which regenerated until they attacked it with silver weapons. The cadaver was covered in expensive jewelry, which was the new party’s first big break since starting their adventures. They pressed further downward and fought a group of 5 zombies before returning to town. On their way they quickly dispatched another cadaver and made it back unscathed.
Theo found that his dagger was a necromancer’s dagger which raises temporary undead defenders when it kills opponents. Both party members ascended to level 2 after spending their treasure.
