Razorstorms Rise of the Runelords

The story so far

Goblins in the Streets
The goblin attack was repelled solidly.
The party saves the townsfolk, and Aldern Foxglove in particular. He immediately starts latching on to the party, and Toma and Thia especially.

The Desecrated Vault
The next day Father Zantus and Sheriff Hemlock rallied the party to check on Ezakien’s vault. They fight off the undead and discover that Ezakien’s body is missing.

The Shopkeepers Daughter
Shayliss Vinder lures Toma to her family shop and locks Esraya and Lanabink in the basement, then shamelessly throws herself at Toma. Her father comes down to find them at about the same time Esraya and Lana get back upstairs. After a tense scene, everyone gets to walk away, but Ven Vinder makes it clear they’re not welcome. Shayliss is quite bitter.

Boar Hunt
Before he leaves, Aldern Foxglove insists on taking the party on a boar hunt with him. He is clearly enamored with Thia, who clearly can’t stand him.

Trouble at the Rusty Dragon
Lonjiku Kaijitsu has a fight with his daughter, Ameiko, at her inn, where the characters are staying. After an intense fight the results in the PC’s standing up for her, and him getting swatted with a ladle full of soup, he leaves in a rage. Ameiko’s friendship with the party is solidified.

Monster in the Closet
A few days after the attack, Amele Barett ran to the Inn in panic pleading for help. The PC’s discovered her husband, killed by a hiding goblin commando that had been hiding for days in their son’s closet. The PC’s start searching the town for more hiding goblins. They pull Foxglove out of bed to search his place, suspicious that he was somehow connected to the problems (especially Thia). It was pretty horrific, and Barett family was completely traumatized.

Grim News from Mosswood
Shalelu returns to town, and Sheriff Hemlock calls the PC’s to meet her. She briefs them on the local goblin situation, and the tribes and heroes. Hemlock is going to travel to Magnimar to request soldiers to protect Sandpoint, and asks the party to stay around to protect the town.

First Session

Established some backgrounds that brought everyone to Sandpoint

  • Toma and Esraya headed here on their caravan’s circuit, most recently from up North. They are here primarily for the cathedral dedication, but secondarily to visit Koya and Niska and Ameiko.
  • Thia joined their caravan in a small village between Sandpoint and Riddleport. She mostly kept to herself, but recognized the Varisians as good and kind people.
  • Azrin came to Sandpoint to convince his uncle, Volioker Briskalberd, to come home to Janderhoff and resolve the family issues now that his grandfather (Volioker’s dad) has died. The day before the festival he arrived and confronted Volioker, who would have none of it. He is very dedicated to this town, and considers them “his people” now.
  • Lanabink arrived in Sandpoint two days previous, staying with her friend, Veznutt. She’d been out exploring the Thassilonian ruins at Wisher’s Well, but couldn’t investigate too deeply without support. He insisted that she go to the festival with him.

Played through the festival

  • Lanabink won the blue ribbon 1st prize for her amazing performance in the balance beam contest (natural 20!). Veznutt kept playing at different games trying to win her prizes, and he tolerated his flirtations in good nature, but not returning the affection. Around lunch time they sat down with Ilsoari Gandethus.
  • Azrin spent his morning drinking the nasty grog from The Fatman’s Feedbag, and ended up hanging with some Sczarni toughs, but didn’t really recognize the significance. He found his uncle and agan tried to talk some dwarven sense into him. Volioker explained why he felt so rooted here (also explaining a lot about the town history, in the process). He also offered to take Azrin to see the opening the play at the Theatre the next night. The discussion ended with Volioker getting angry again and storming off.
  • Toma and Esraya spent time chatting with friends. Toma demonstrated the Harrow reading, and then did a reading for Thia. (It was very significant, need to figure this out later.) They said high to Ameiko, who offered to let them both stay at her inn. They then went to visit old Niska.
  • Thia mostly followed Toma and Esraya around, like a stray puppy. She was very uncomfortable, as the townpeople all looked at her like they were seeing a ghost, and all giving her a wide berth. After the Swallowtail Release, butterflies were drawn to her, and they kept landing on her, when no one else could touch them.
