Since the end of the covenant between dragons and men, the world has seen great change. Where there was once a balance, and control of the forces of the great creatures of the sky, there is now only turmoil and distrust. The dark dragons have seized control of the southern islands of Drakkos and have teamed with the evil dracans who live there, and have begun their advance against their brothers in northern Drakkos. This includes fighting against the draconic church, also known as the Knights of Drakkos. It is this reason why the Knights of Drakkos have sought aid from the countries to their north, mainly Mycersyn and Skalban. The king of Skalban has accepted the treaty with Northern Drakkos, and with the aid of a few goodly dragons who remained after the end of the covenant, the new triad has been formed, the Dragon Knights. So it would seem that the new name for this time is in fact a fallacy, for there is no rest of the dragons, even though Dragonest has begun.

The Haunted Mansion, 24 Dracarr 3008 (12-12-2018)
Whisked away by a giant flock of crows, the finds themselves standing before the Haunted Mansion described as part of the Hallow Falls Festival. Seeking entry at the front door shows only an impenetrable darkness which even the cleric of light cannot foil. A service entrance around the side reveals an old hag named Bertha who serves the house, but gives little advice about how to get in. She mentions something about the imagination and what it can bring for those who enter through the door of darkness.

Once the party takes the plunge, they find themselves standing in a place nearly exact and not just reminiscent of the Arcan Crypts graveyard. A voice calls out for help which sounds like the young Jony of their past. In the fog music is heard, and the zombified figure of Jamtas the fallen bard steps out playing his ballads upon his lute. He ignores the party, fixed upon his music. Heading over to see to the call for help, a familiar face of a boy seems pinned in beneath some fallen rock at the entrance to a crypt. Freeing Jony, he takes them to the entrance to the Steele Crypt mentioning that he can hear and see what is inside without even entering. He hands Felthan a weirstone, seemingly the same one as it is missing from his possessions. The party cautiously heads below. A figure stands in the corner in the room below, and a mace on the wall. Grasping it up it shines the light of the sun. The figure is a version of Rand. Korgan strikes up conversation with his old mentor, who seems cryptic at first but eventually unfolds with useful information on he place they have all found themselves visiting.

A possible gateway into Limbo itself, based on what Rand says below in the Steele family crypt. Atop this he says that his soul has been stolen, and mentions that the tome of shadow is near, soon found on Vurcin. Rand warns against Jony here in this place, and guides the adventurers to speak with the woman with red hair as they continue down to the end of the corridor.

Identity of the Moneylender, 24 Dracarr 3008 (12-5-2018)
Seeing the minotaur passing through town, the party decides to confront her. She is less than forthcoming with information until the party uses their best words to convince her to divulge a list containing the names and amounts of the people who owe her boss. Heading over to Pa Kobain's house reveals that he borrowed 2,000 gold to bring his dead son back from monster status. The deal was made with the necromancer, and Pa is now a bloodsucker. He runs to his room to avoid bleeding out his grandson and his friends.

A trip to speak with the mayor reveals that his loan of 20,000 was to bribe the chancellor of Northern Dragar for his position in Brasov. The moneylender was set up between the chancellor and the mayor, his name divulged as Jonathon Haldurn who happens to be Felthan Crendraven's uncle. The mayor is broke otherwise and cannot conceive even paying back the loan he secured for his position in Brasov.

A trip to the stable to confront Petr Rasov finds him dead, throat slit, and laying on the floor of his house. The boy Ivan is nowhere to be found. However, Vurcin takes advantage of a chest in the corner finding another copy of the Tome of Shadows and quickly pockets it describing it to the party as "a book of herbs". Felthan is quite convinced that the druid is lying and has a hard time not returning to questioning the mischievous rogue want-to-be about the book he boonswaggled away.

The Van Halfling's took out a loan to cover their parent's funeral costs and to fix up their business after they were killed. Times were tough.

Speaking with the stonemason, John Smith claims that he borrowed money to build a mission somewhere in Northern Dragar for the needy, needing the money for the project. But it turns out he in fact has a gambling and prostitution addiction and the money went to those projects instead.

Everyone the party has spoken to seems to have a legitimate loan so far, with nothing really amiss besides some ill-made choices.

The Moneylender seems evident to be Jonathan Haldurn, the king's chancellor in Northern Dragar. He, through the minotaur Jahn has given out loans to the following people in Brasov. The loans have turned out to be legitimate.

Petr Rasov - 4,000gp (Dead...for now...)
Antony & Anna - 3,000gp
The Amazing Andrew - 6,000gp
Ashmore Glimm - 2,000gp
The VanHalflings - 1,000gp - Funeral cost, fixing up shop, vacation.
Mayor Sneed - 20,000gp
Madam Lisa - 1,500gp
Jezul - 2,000gp - Grows Herbs
Bitsy Hillshire - 1,000gp
John Smith - 3,500gp - Porn/Women like Three-Toed Mary.
Gregor Kobain - 2,000gp - Loan to make his son alive again. Also had to trade his soul for the necromancer to aid him. It seems that Pa Kobain is showing the signs of vampirism.

Attack Against the Southern Camp, 23 Dracarr 3008 (11-28-2018)
After leaving the Northern Camp to confront the ousted werewolves still worshiping the Darkness in the southern camp, the party finds the camp desolate. A few dead bodies left ravaged, laying around giving sign that a foul attack by werewolves has destroyed Madame Vilsa's people. A faint call for help can be heard coming from her hut. Investigating, the party finds Madame Vilsa clinging to life, but the seer is barely scathed and a small heal from Korgan Kobain brings her back. She explains that werewolves did in fact attack the camp and preparations are made to burn the bodies and any valuables are taken by the old woman, loaded into her cart. She plans to head to Brasov to stay with her niece Lisa. She gives the adventurers another reading, even more cryptic than the last before the group heads out. Madame Vilsa describes that her medallion protects her from dark powers, like Korgan's medallion which is not a simple consolation prize but a powerful artifact which symbolizes a hereditary protection from creatures of dark design. This information is contrary to Barnabus' description of the medallion. No signs of Randy's body is found in the camp, and it is believed that he may have been part of the attack. Barefoot humanoid tracks lead back into the woods towards the camp to the north.

On the way to Brasov, the two day journey requires the group to rest on the road for the night. Signs of spider infestation within the woods coats the forest in white webbing as far as their eyes can see. But, they escape any attack through careful watch, and keeping a campfire stoked throughout the night. Upon reaching Brasov the next day, an investigation of the church shows signs of near completion but the facade is coated in the mischievous defamation from pranksters over Hallow Falls' Night of Mischief. Korgan cleans up the church and the party decides what to do next. It is agreed that approaching the Count would be a bad idea right now, due to failing to destroy the werewolf camp. Madame Vilsa heads to her niece's shop bidding the adventurers a farewell.

Prophecy, 21 Dracarr 3008 (11-15-2018)
A continuation of the battle between Octavia, the slaves, Dorn, and Felthan disguised as Gahri seems to continue as show until Octavia lands a real bite upon Dorn's arm.

Upon biting Dorn, the shaman is thrown backwards against the wall of the pit. She wriggles in agony as the amulet against Dorn’s chest flares with a fiery light. Pain courses through his arm as black, wispy tendrils crawl through his flesh. Blackened blood coursing through his veins, showing through his pale skin. The pain is like nothing he’s felt. The shaman changes back to human grasping at the air as the wolf leaves her. Barnabus screams out, “what have you done sister! This was to be only show, you knew not to bite him for the amulet protects him and for one of us to do so would mean our death.” Octavia in her last moments, as she clings to her life says, “Brother, I have never left him, the Dark Lord willed it and the prophecy be done. A child of bird and shadow light, masked in stone, adorned with a silver icon of a beast, and bitten by a the devout of darkness shall change this world forever. As it is marked on the unholy tablet beneath the ancient ash. I have sacrificed myself to begin his will. The next blood moon shall reveal his creature, pity those in his path. I am food for the worms brother, do not forget me.” She screams in agony and dies, her pupils turning to a red-black, blood running down her cheeks. Barnabus moans in confusion, “forgive me, I did not know that she never left the corruption behind. This land has not healed, and it is for her that this has happened. You should prepare yourself Dorn Stoneheel, the next blood moon is in seven days. If what my sister says is true, then an uncontrollable rage will overcome you soon, and even your friends should decide to avoid you during that night. The first turning is no trivial matter.”

Likable Lycanthropes, 21 Dracarr 3008 (11-7-2018)
Continuing their way through the forest, Vurcin suddenly appears at the edge of the wood. Apparently he entered a doorway into the Shadowfell and had been working his way out, landing himself in front of the party how ironic. They continue on together to the rumored lycanthrope camp excited to battle some foul beasts.

Reaching the edge of the temyri camp, they notice children playing and simple people going about a daily routine. Fires are aglow, and the warm camp appears inviting, if not the opposite of what the Count may have described about these people. Being noticed standing at the outside of the camp, the mothers grab up there children ushering them to safety from the strangers entering their safe haven. Two beefy men approach to confront the party asking them why they came. After describing the reasons why, and mentioning that Randy says hi, the two men draw swords. Dorn and Felthan diffuse the situation with soft and diplomatic words and ask to see Barnabus.

The story seems to go totally different as Barnabus unravels the story of his people's past and the worship of The Darkness, but now followers of the other Wodan in ways of peace. Yet more people sent by the Count to destroy the lycanthrope temyri, like Lucia Larkmoor before them. But she learned to love these people and even taught love to Barnabus to help him shed his dark ways. Barnabus recognized Dorn for who he is, and the amulet around his neck which Lucia also wore during her time spent with the temyri. Barnabus demands a feast and celebration to mark this time, including a pit fight with his loyal warrior Gahri versus Dorn commencing just before dawn.

Seeking out the shaman, Octavia agrees to assist the adventurers in removing the corruption from the local druid ring with a list of odd ingredients to be obtained. Something about her unnerves Felthan, but he makes preparations to switch places with Gahri to go toe to toe with Dorn in attempts to spare bloodshed.

Three slaves caged in the pit make the party unnerved, but they commence the challenge with a show of flare and acrobatics. Felthan gets a good shot in on Dorn, knocking him back accidentally but he's ok. To liven the show, Barnabus sends in the shaman who takes wolf form and jumps in the pit while also releasing the slaves to stand against the disguised Felthan and Dorn. What will the party do, they feel anxious about the slaves being harmed??

Until next time....
