OUR ADVENTURE BEGINS
As everyone comes to terms with their characters, we are introduced to who will be making up the party. Luke the Fencer, Evangeline the Captain and her lieutenant Vince, Red the Explorer, Carby Maru the Burglar and Talion Vettner, the Priest of Good.
The heroes of the story start their adventure on a ship, possibly transporting spice or prisoners or something similar. Upon immediate shipwrecking, they began making their way into the island they find themselves stranded on, searching some kind of society.
Instead, they simply find tiny cannibals! Dreaded Pech who keep themselves busy by killing and eating visitors. Fearing conflict, the party navigate around, finding the tower owned by the masked wizard Xildxen. Xildxen offers the group a way off the island if they can return a jade idol, stolen from him by the pygmies.
The party makes their way toward a large pygmy camp. After devising a plan containing stealth, subterfuge and romance, everything goes wrong and instead ends up in a massive skirmish. Bruised and frustrated, the party defeat the pygmies (including a shaman with some powerful summoning magic) and retrieve the idol, before making their way back to Xildxen and his tower.
Xildxen offers the party some hospitality while they wait a few days for his ship to arrive. During these days, the party overhear him chanting words with evil natures, causing Talion to lead the charge in stopping it. The Idol given to Xildxen had grown considerably and had become sentient. After the ensuing fight, Xildxen claimed that he was using the idol to research Ancient Saurien history, and the party had in fact disrupted this by destroying the idol.
Regardless, Xildxen allows the party to stay and wait for the ship. Red, Eve and Vince decided to explore the surrounding area, finding some odd skeletons of large creatures and another island about a day away.
The next day, the entire group met up with the Captain of Xildxen’s ship, who informed them that the island they are currently on was named Somanti, and the passage would take them to Sebadoria. And so the party took off, finishing their first adventure and arriving in the city of Plaak, and civilized lands.
