Rise of Kyrien
12 Haunted Castle pt 2
So we go upstairs. First room seems to be missing parts of the roof. A few more rooms just filled with junk. We heard a loud screech coming from the end of the corridor. Me and the witch hear someone crying behind a locked door in the room near the end of the corridor. I was the only one brave enough to open this door. We find a woman that monkie boy seems to recognise from downstairs. We follow her down the stairs into the basement.
Couldn’t keep up with the girl but we found the kitchen and hear skittering. Suddenly a swarm of rats comes out of a large hole in the wall and goes for me.
We find the cellar with tons of broken bottles. The witch used her powers to find some good looking bottles hidden. See how many of those make it back to town!
We find a door that has recently been broken in. We go in and find someone dead in there. The witch goes a bit off and then goes to play with some books then she starts to scream. Tells the fighter off for trying to break the window where he thinks he sees some guy in it.
Go down another set of stairs. I see the creepy guy and he’s digging a hole and I’m pretty sure that he’s saying “For you”. Next thing I see some ghouls grab him and they come for me. The ghouls disappear but I have a really big gash on my arm bracer that I’m sure wasn’t there before.
A big ass bat comes out and tries to eat my face. Ouch! Still standing but a bit angry and had to gain some strength from within.
We keep heading down and find more ghouls which splatter quickly.
Another room has a swirly pool of water. I try to get across and end up at the bottom but manage to find my way back to the edge of the pool. The other monk couldn’t find her way out so I went back in and grabbed her and hauled her up. Gave a rope to the witch so she could attach it and we could climb up.
Room really creepy with lots of dead stuff. The creepy guy looks dead and calls out to me. His face contorts and he lunges at us. We hit him and then he cowers. He says I’m supposed to take the place of someone he hurt. Something about brothers in Magnima wanted some poison from him or something so they sent some rats.
While the others were talking, he gets up and his face changes again and he talks about how our murders will affect things. We kill him and get his stuff.
On the way out the door, we get attacked by a whole boat-load of crows. We kill all that then head to the pub. I’ll need a stiff drink or a large number of drinks after that one.
