Defenders of the Realm

Delving further into the Kobold caves...

After removing the sash of the fallen guard for proof the group of adventurers venture on further into the cave.

Lady Nymeria spots movement up ahead which leads to an encounter with a mutated Weasel creature & it’s magic wielding Kobold master.

Brathour charges forward screaming a mighty battle cry & hurls his javelin into the grotesquely mutated Weasel, piecing its shoulder blade. The Weasel strikes wildly, misses but lands on Brathour, whom shrugs it off in his rage.

Nymeria morphs into a giant Wolf Spider to the surprise of many, but has a leg chinged from the Kolbolds fireball.

After Brathour almost fatally wounds the mutated Weasel, Noire manages to kill it with a well aimed arrow through it’s mutated neck sack.

Content Not Found: raven hurls a Eldritch blast at the Kolbold, catching it in the face. Arileigh then disables the Kolbold with a arrow through it’s leg.

During a quick interrogation Content Not Found: raven uses Fey Presence to petrify the Kolbolt. Only to turn up information on ‘the Green One’ who has plans to dominate all.

Content Not Found: raven then mercilessly slits the Kolbolds throat, with a glint in his/her eyes that leaves the rest of the party taken back a touch.

Alileigh turns up a magical potion on the corpse of the Kolbold, which on further examination reveals an eyeball mixed in. None in the party have knowledge of the potion.

Finding a tunnel up ahead the party decide to enter but their combined weigh capsizes the tunnel & they find themselves in a lair of four fungus creatures.

They quickly dispatch the fungi with Content Not Found: raven summoning Hellish Rebuke from her finger melting the first.

Brathour goes on to split the second fungi cleanly in two halves.

Noire slays one fungi with his Rapier & then hurls his dagger at the last.

Lady Nymeria still in her spider form ends the last fungi with a poisoned bite.

A round of applause goes up from the party for Nymeria notching up up her second kill of the campaign. Before attentions turn to how they will get out of the fungi lair.

Arileigh swiftly rides Nymeria out in her spider form. Brathour manages the climb without breaking a sweat, leaving Noire & Content Not Found: raven to scrabble up in the rear.

Upon exiting the tunnel it is evident that the noise of the tunnels collapse & our skirmish with the fungi has alerted a gang of Kobolds to our presence.

Five Kobolds all mounted upon Weasels are waiting to attack…

Content Not Found: raven knocks a Kobold rider off it’s mount burning a hole through it’s chest with An Eldritch Blast.

Nymeria bites a Kolbold rider & Noire finishes him off with an arrow.

After a round of fighting Content Not Found: raven puts three Kobolds & three Weasels to sleep.

Brathour then strikes a fatal blow on one of the remaining Weasels.

Again after Nymeria strikes the remaining Weasel, Noire swiftly finishes it off with a arrow from the shadows.

The party hope to tie up the sleeping enemies before they awake from their induced slumber…

The party successfully tie up all enemies before they awaken and search the surrounding cavern. They find two guards gagged and tied. After a few questions they seem trustworthy and are untied. They provide information to the group of a beast in the cave system which has already taken one of their own and a plot of the Kobolds to attack the city.

Unfit to fight, the guards agree to take the remaining two Kobolds back for questioning and justice.

A small amount of loot is found at the end of a short natural tunnel. Although the party suspect and prepare for a trap it is safe.

A short rest helps the party for what’s to come.

Following the cave system back the way they came they search for this mysterious beast. In a cavern not previously searched the party can see a chest. Suspecting foul play again Raven conjures a mage hand to lift the lid. Revealing its true nature the chest chomps down with its lid, attempting to eat the mage hand.

The group fight valiantly against the beast, all hitting with incredible force before Nymeria deals the last blow. The creature never stood a chance.

Upon close examination the group discover it is a mimic beast luring people in with the promise of treasure. They also discover the fallen guards sash, another interesting looking potion and a grey steaming concoction.

Deciding to continue through the caves in an attempt to stop the Kobolds plans the party venture through a Kobold made tunnel. The tunnel leads them right to a group of five Kobolds relaxing around a fire while winged Kobolds roost on a ledge over head. Nymeria reacts first jumping into her spider form. The Kobolds have not noticed the group so Raven sends out a sleep spell and four Kobolds seemingly nod of to sleep of their own accord.

Arileigh, Nymeria and Noire try to bring down the winged Kobolds. Nymeria climbs up the wall to reach them, Arileigh critically injures one with an expert shot from her bow and Noire just missing.

The one awake Kobold at the fire notices somethings amiss but is stopped in his tracks by Brathours axe. Raven is able to finish him off with a eldrich blast to the face. He melts horribly. High above the winged Kobolds fly from their roosts and begin attacking the party.

Nymeria and Raven take heavy damage as the group whittle the attackers down to the last one. It turns and flees and only after many attempts by the party do they finally bring it down.

The group return to the fire. Three Kobolds have remained asleep during the attack. Noire heartlessly kills two as they sleep and the last is awoken for questioning. He reveals the way to their leader and is persuaded by Raven to leave the cave system, disabling all the traps on the way. The Kobold is grateful to leave with his life.

Another short rests helps the group recoup after the two major battles.

Noire is the first to venture down the next tunnel as the others wait for his scout report. He has discovered the leader and two mutated weasels at the bottom. Being as stealthy as possible the party head down. The weasels smell the approaching party and their cover is blown.

Quick action from Arileigh firing a shot straight at the leader but his reaction is swift and he is able to pull a weasel into the line of fire. Brathour receives some nasty damage from the wounded beast before Noire shots an arrow straight into its ear killing it.

Nymeria takes the form of a dire weasel and launches herself at the remaining weasel. An eldrich blast and arrow bring down the last mutated beast and the leader is left.

The leader disengages from the battle and runs. He is brought down by an arrow from Arileigh but a final arrow from Noire ends the fellows life.

The Party search for loot and retrieve the tied up weasels to bring back to civilization.
