Coast Guard of Lanthor

Playing "Darkness" games

Previously on “Coast Guard of Lanthor”, we were just ending a fight when everything went white…

The whiteness cleared again, leaving us with the feeling that something had just been altered in the recent past… We were all alive and well and couldn’t remember anything being altered…

We shook ourselves and then looked around. The small, angry creature who had killed a werewolf in one flurry of blows turned out to be a goblin. He addressed us and told us his name was Daniel. He was from Hawthorne (the village we came here to help) and had gone out into the swamp himself to investigate the disappearances. We introduced ourselves and said we had been sent here to help, but before we could talk further, “Darkness” broke in and said that we would not be bothered again tonight. He said he would see us again tomorrow and to sleep well. (Creepy). We agreed that the elves would watch first, while Ogre and I slept, but we had a look around before bed. We found that there was a ring of undead skeleton warriors ringing our camp, killing anything that came around. After many assurances from the elves that they would be carefully watching , I went to sleep. However, when Ogre awoke at dawn the next morning, he (she?) found EVERYONE else asleep. Apparently, the assurances given by “Darkness” last night made the elves feel so comfortable that, in spite of a ring of undead warriors around us, they slept like babies. %^&*$#@!!!!!!!!!

After some choice words, the avakar told us he saw a green glow last night and it was (probably) that way. We decided that seemed the best direction to go, and the goblin helped guide us through the swamp in that direction. Towards evening we came across a well-appointed mansion with a nice dock, and there were several undead there seemingly awaiting us. They helped us dock and pointed us to a pavilion not far away. There we heard “Darkness” again, offering hospitality for the evening and promising not to kill us until we entered his house.

What followed was a creepy evening of entertainment. At several points, “Darkness” mentioned a darkmistress who turned out to be Cey’nara. He tried very hard to convert us to her worship, but none of us were interested.

The next morning, we decided it was into the house with us. The undead guards held the doors for us to go in, but then slammed them behind us very unnervingly. Several rooms in, we encountered a sealed stone room where we got gassed with poison gas!! Damn that “Darkness”!! We all eventually passed out…

We woke up some time later in a stone prison, with none of our gear and in our underwear. “Darkness” taunted us, saying we would be tested to see what heroes were really made of. Then everything went quiet. We eventually broke out of the prison and took along a couple of metal bars as weapons. We fought a bunch of skeleton warriors and archers and a TROLL zombie with very little but our wits, but we still won.

“Darkness” told us he was impressed and considering the possibility that heroes were more than their gear. We basically ignored him while we searched the room, where we found one of our elvish rapiers…
