Tarrastra Adventure 93

Caelesti's notes




The party searched the Ghoul, finding a dagger, gold, gems, and a note at read, "Bring back Yoshi, Carric, and Nessey. Deliver Caelesti to L.N. for Them."

Talon was anxious to set up camp elsewhere. Caelesti said that the bodies should be burned first. Yoshi agreed that putting the people's souls to rest. Talon agreed that it was good that they couldn't be animated again. The party burned the bodies, but unfortunately started a forest fire. The party fled.

The party set up camp some distance away. Some of them got a few more hours sleep, while the watchers kept an eye out (sharing the one) for trouble.

In the morning, the party packed up and headed west. As they came over a hill, they spotted another camp. They recognized the Trader from Betand. As the party approached, the Traders' eyes went wide, and then became beady. The party reacquainted, finding out that his name was Laggy Nap. Caelesti asked him what he wanted with her. When he claimed ignorance, she said she found a note that says, "Bring Caelesti to Laggy Nap". He still claimed ignorance but said he wanted to hear all about the party's travels.

A woman approached Nap walking stiffly. He asked her to make breakfast for the party, and she moved off quickly. She wore silvery boots, as did the others in Nap's group.

Talon cast Detect Thoughts, trying to determine Nap's true motives. After several seconds, she read Nap's servant's mind -- it thought "I better hurry or I will be burned again". She could not get anything from Nap's mind.

Nap invited Talon to sit by the fire. He asked why the party was heading west. Talon said it was to escape the fire. Nap sniffed and nodded. Nap was nosy, and talks continued. Ultimately, Nap and his group headed west toward The Blot with the party.

In the evening, the parties set up camp. Nap had his servants cook dinner. Yoshi noticed that the servants obeyed out of fear. At one point, Nap went to oversee the cooking. The party passed no information amongst each other. Nap returned to join the party. When the food appeared, some of the party ate. Nap beguiled the party a bit, and more of the party ate. Talon used slight of hand to pretend to eat. Nap asked the party to drink wineghost with him. Yoshi declined. Mavis drank, and Talon appeared to. Caelesti delayed. Talon, in a "drunken fashion" knocked the drink out of Caelesti's hand.

Mavis grew sleepy quickly and went to bed; Talon moved off to sit by Carric. Caelesti and Nap conversed at the fire, while Yoshi sat and listened. Nap suggested that he and Caelesti go off to The Blot without the others. The Blot may be interested in "having" The Prophet of Pfarb Durim with them.

After Nap went to bed, Caelesti talked to Yoshi by the fire. Yoshi seemed OK for Caelesti to run off with Nap, if that's what "he" wants. Caelesti was suspicious with Yoshi.

Caelesti then moved off to talk to Talon, to see if "that" was OK with her to. She was surprised that Yoshi would agree to that. She was then surprised that Yoshi went to bed without declaring watches for the night. Caelesti said she would take first watch and wake Talon.

Some time into her watch, Caelesti cast two Charm Person spells on Yoshi (since she could not tell if the first was effective), and two more on Mavis. She then tossed rocks into bushes near the other camp; nobody stirred. Caelesti then moved over to the other tents, have a handy "checking out the noise story". She then cast silent Charm Person spells on six different people, not knowing who was affected.

Without waiting for the end of her watch, Caelesti woke Talon for the next watch. After Talon's watch, she woke Mavis. Mavis became suspicious that she was drugged.

In the morning, Laggy was ready to go to The Blot with the party. Caelesti said that she decided she wanted to go to Poffle instead, and return to The Blot in a week. She then tried to coax the others, all but Talon wanted to go with her. Caelesti cast a couple silent Charm Person spells on Talon, but she still left with Laggy.

Mavis and Caelesti convinced Yoshi that they should follow Laggy to "protect" him from a suspected threat.

The groups approached The Blot. Laggy, led Talon and Izia to the gate. A strange creature greeted them; it had two humanoid torsos attached to a single lower body. The creature summoned another strange creature; it had a spherical body on wheels. The "fat man" asked Nap if he brought everything; laggy said almost. The Fat Man then summoned the Tall Man. The Tall Man appeared and also asked Nap if he brought everything. The Tall Man was upset that Laggy did not bring Caelesti. He took the boots off Izia and placed them on laggy. He then gave Izia to the Dupies, saying they could have her legs.

Laggy accepted the loss of his pawn, though was disappointed. He told Talon he needed to bring Caelesti back. Talon said she could find her, saying Caelesti was headed for Poffle. Laggy let Talon leave The Blot on her own. She quickly caught up to the party that had been following them and filled them in. The party agreed that rescuing Izia was important.

Brianna recenters everyone's view
Scribe: Laggy tells the rest of his crew to stay behind at a distance.
Scribe: As we approach, we see a strange creature who was loitering outside the door.
Scribe: From the waist up looks like two people - two heads, sets of arms, chests, one set of legs, one set of hips, one waists.
Scribe: Upper body is double humanoid. Lower body is humanoid.
Scribe: The heads are male.
Scribe: It Chortles.
Scribe: Duplie One. Dupie Two.
Scribe: Izia has gone while.
Scribe: Laggy Nap strides foward.
Scribe: Laggy Nap - we have come back and brought the goods you have requested.
Scribe: Ah, the master will like that. The two heads hug and kiss each other - almost obscenely.
Scribe: They say they are always happy to see Laggy.
Scribe: We can see into the town and a long pair of tracks.
Scribe: The duo call The Fat Man.
Scribe: It is a strange hemispherical creature, riding a cart. Rolling along the tracks, screeching. It's fat pudgy head sticks up.
Scribe: It rolls aong. Creature is a sphere - half immersed in cart. top of half of sphere sticks up.
Scribe: He looks like a baloon of a man - like an egg cup on wheels.
Scribe: He says the Fat cart needs oil, Duppies.
Scribe: The Duppy One pulls oil can out of pocket and oils the can.
Mavis: Dupies
Scribe: Fat Man - good Dupies, good Dupies.
Scribe: He say - so Laggy Nap, you have brought everything that the Tall Man requires.
Scribe: Laggy says he has brought almost everything. he looks back at Talon and his camp.
Scribe: Fat Man is not pleased to hear "Almost." He says we will see what Tall Man has to say about that.
Scribe: Railway Car comes along.
Scribe: It has a beam along it. As we look at it - the beam bends in the middle and sits up.
Scribe: Tall Man asks if Laggy has brought everything they require.
Scribe: Laggy - squirms - almost, almost.
Scribe: Tall Man says they will not renew the boots if Laggy has not brought everything they needed.
Scribe: Tall Man calls over Izia.
Scribe: She is white and trembling.
Scribe: he damands to see the boots.
Scribe: She hikes up her skirt.
Scribe: Can see the silver boots.
Scribe: Tall Man unlocks with Silver Key.
Scribe: Izia gasps and falls back.
Scribe: Tall Man pulls off the boots.
Scribe: Tall Man says "Laggy, what did you not bring?"
Scribe: Laggy - Caelesti did not come with me.
Scribe: Tall Man says perhaps he needs to put the boots on Laggy.
Scribe: Laggy pleads.
Scribe: Tall Man grabs Laggy and puts the boots on him by force.
Scribe: laggy asks what will be done with Izia.
Scribe: Tall Man says she has her uses. Dupies would like another set of legs. A female set for reasons of their own. He thinks her legs will do just fine. Scribe: Tall Man says Laggy must go and get Caelesti as Masters have requested.
Scribe: Taon sees that Izias legs are scarred and grey and dead skin looking from years and years perhaps of wearing the cast/boots.
Scribe: Talon just observes.
Scribe: Tall Man - So, Laggy, you go and bring back Caelesti.
Scribe: Talon backs slowly towards her mule.
Scribe: Laggy stumbles back.
Scribe: Dupies look anxiously at Izia.
Scribe: Dupies - Ours, ours, very clever we are, we know what to do with legs we do.
Scribe: Laggy ignores Talon and wanders back to his camp.
Scribe: Talon goes back to her mule and mounts it.
Scribe: Talon follows Laggy on her mule. She is concerned about him.
Scribe: Talon - Laggy, Laggy, what will become of Izia.
Scribe: Laggy - she is just a pawn. I bought her from that Shifter years ago. She has served her purpose.
Scribe: Laggy - don't worry about her - she is not important.
Scribe: Talon - what will the Dupies do with the rest of her body.
Scribe: Laggy - who cares?
Scribe: Talon follows Laggy back to his entourage.
Scribe: Talon is confused.
Scribe: She wants to help Laggy.
Scribe: Laggy says go get Caelesti.
Scribe: Talon heads for Poffle.
Scribe: She rides out on the road to Poffle looking for Caelesti.
Scribe: What do the others do, who are watching from 100 feet away.
Scribe: or yards away.
Scribe: The party makes themselves known as Talon rides up.
Scribe: Talon speaks of Dupies operating on Izia and taking her legs.
Scribe: Yoshi is upset.
Scribe: Yoshi says we can't let them do that.
Scribe: Yoshi says we have to save her.
Scribe: Talon speaks of tall evil guy with magic boots who makes people obey his will and he is really strong.
Scribe: Mavis - nevertheless we must save Izia.
Scribe: CAelesti - tell us what we are up against.
Scribe: Talon describes all the creatures she saw.
Scribe: She also speaks of the unseen Masters who might be in the City.
Scribe: Talon insists Laggy said it was okay.
Scribe: Yoshi can not believe this.
Scribe: Talon says Laggy said this after Evil Tall guy puts boots on him so must be under and evil spell.
Scribe: Talon - Caelesti - The Tall Man wanted Laggy to bring you. He said the Masters want you. I am afraid for you. You shouldn't go.
Scribe: Caelesti - I still think all of us should go and rescue Izia.
Scribe: Caelesti - I am not safe out in the woods by myself.
Scribe: We agree to rescue Izia.
Scribe: We all head back toward The Blot.
