Rise of Kyrien
10 Sandpoint take 2
Well, so much for the time off we were promised! I ended up on a lame escort mission. Supposed to escort this ambassador for the South tribes to the castle. Pretty boring if you ask me that is until someone attacked us in the northern part. Heard them and before they knew what was going on I had taken care of the situation myself. The ambassador was so grateful she personally thanked me – twice!
Get back to meet everyone else before giving our reports to the general. Seems my monk managed to let the creepy woman go. Not willingly though – she beat him pretty bad. She’s going to get a taste of my steel one of these days.
General was pretty pissed at losing the woman. I think she’s pissed at us for convincing her to give the woman a chance. So instead she sends us back to Sandpoint because it seems our job there is far from over.
We get to Sandpoint and the now Captain Ameko tells us that people are getting killed in Sandpoint. Then she shows us some notes written in blood which have my markings on them. WTF is going on here? Monk and witch say they are written to me and are kinda creepy. I think it might be from the boss of the fire woman who got away because this person knew things.
We go to the mill to see some of the bodies and see muddy/bloody footprints outside and inside the bodies are a mess. We went to go question one of the people who found the bodies but this new fighter we have with us and I get bored so decide to go back and have a look at the mess in the mill. He picked up this axe with blood all over it and nearly lose my lunch. Couldn’t really blame the guy – it smelled like horrible rotting mess. Lucky for me I guess that I’ve seen enough death on the battlefield to not really be affected. Though I’m not sure how smart this fighter is because he was about the wash the axe before I took it off of him. Took it to Ameko for safe keeping until the others finished their questions and we could show them. Took the poor fighter guy for a drink to settle his nerves. Went and set us up at the Dragon and were getting stuck into a few drinks when I hear this guy talking about scarecrows smelling like death walking around in the fields. I question him a little but questioning really isn’t my thing so I take the fighter and we go find my monk and the witch.
They are at the expensive brothel “questioning “. I tell them they REALLY need to come with us now and take them ti Ameko where I show them the axe and tell them all about the scarecrows.
We head out to the fields and in one house we find another dead body with a note and some carved markings the same as the bodies we saw before who had notes – getting really tired of whoever it is playing games. Another room had two people who were turned into ghouls. Not sure what that means but they are really squishy.
Outside we hear noises from the barn – ghouls I think – and I heard what sounded like crying from the field. My monk went to see while the witch and I went to sort out the barn. My monk comes back with some half dead person and says that all the scarecrows are really people and the rest of the people are ghouls in the barn. He says not to open the barn, I say we burn it. The witch is worried about the fire spreading to the fields. Big decision as the sun begins to set….
