Curse Of The Crimson Throne Pathfinder

My parent's murderer is dead!

Lamm is dead.  These people have been helpful, sometimes quite remarkable in their abilities and behaviour. Can I keep up my pretence? I have been a barmaid for so long, it is good to use the skills my father taught me. This city is going to the abyss. Can I trust a priestess to teach me the truth about Pharasma? Will the wizard show me how to stun my opponents with skill? That Monk is so much fun to fight alongside, although he does need encouragement and guidance. 

No one noticed my lack of reaction to the sudden awareness that Zalora is dead. Praise Pharasma that they didn't. We found some nice trinkets here. A nice crossbow, better than my sling.  We found a silve ring, my mother, Emmah, had a ring just like that one. The disguise kit will come in handy one day.  I wonder if there is anything hidden in this place?

oh yeah, I killed a crocodillo almost singlehandedly!

Justice will be served
Reflections at a fishmonger

[After the rush of struggle with Lamm and his criminal thugs in the abandoned fishmongers. The group of Lamm's victims rest in the lower rooms near the lapping ocean while the city alarm horns are sounding.]

After making sure that Toser is going to live, Bamil clears part of the desk away and sits down to think about what finding Lamm means for him. Watching the others go through the belongings of the newly dead thugs and room contents raises concerning thoughts.

Finding justice is one thing, but have I now become a looter of the dead and common burglar. How far have I fallen since Lamm accused me of murder. Can a follower and member of Pharasma even loot the dead, or is this taboo? I see that there are items here of significant value and wealth that would lift me from the slums of Korvosa.

Studying the others that risked their lives to find revenge I see a mixed pot of abilities and motivations that appeared to work well together when danger raised its head. I have never seen the fighting style and agility shown by Reggy before, even if he is naive to the ways of a city. It is not his fault he is only young by anyones standard and may learn to survive.

The priest will end up dead if she cannot see that having clean clothes is not worth her or our lives. Still that is her choice. She is the most promising one to aid me in the orders mission though and I should continue to work alongside her for a time.

I was surprised by the self taught summoner and his constructed entity, he is nothing like the conjurers from the Acamadae. At least he understands the arcane and we can understand each other. Maybe we can study together, since I no longer have access to the Hall of Lies library.

Looking across to the barmaid, who clearly is comfortable with killing helpless people and robbing them, I wonder what the hell she is doing here. Is she following me? I have seen her too many times in my search for Gaedren to be a coincidence. She will need watching.

Turning my attention to the small collection of valuables, I wonder if this is the direction of my life now. Fulfilling my mission requires funds and special items which means I need to earn serious coin. I must reflect on this and whether the lady of graves will permit me to steal from the dead.

Another Sunday evening.
Who can I trust?

It is another Sunday evening. More of the regulars shuffle in. I have served here at 'Jeggy's Jug' for two months. At least it is better than 'The Tilted Elbow'.  Sixteen years it has been since I lost my Papa at the hand of Lamm. Living on the streets has taught me self reliance. Jonn, an  acquaintance in the Cerulean Society helped me get this job. Barmaid! What would Papa think of me. Papa taught me how to make locks and keys. But no-one trusts a girl that can fix locks. I am stuck waitressing and pulling ales.  Maybe than tall Halfling will come back and show me how to mix that brew we shared the other night…….

For those that lose their way, go back to the source

[Sitting at a wooden table inside the church of Sarenrae, with several opened holy tomes spread out from the golden robed pilgrim eagerly studying a text titled "The Cleansing fires of the faithful"]

Bamil discretely shifts his eyes to glance at anyone that may be watching him in this holy place. It has been more than a month of futile effort trying to locate the crime lord Gaedren Lamm by himself. Feeling his frustration growing, he has taken the advice of his family mentor and friend to seek answers in study so that the path will become clear. He reminded Bamil not to waste time that could be better spent understanding the ways of necromancy and how undead are controlled instead of watching the markets from sunrise to sunset each day.

Reading the tome again his interest peaks. He thinks that the cleansing fire aspect of the dawnflowers faithful could be applied in his magic with a bit more research and is a worthwhile use of time until he has a lead on Lamm. Today is the first time he has actually relaxed, probably due to the presence of a library filled with books, and the familiar golden robes of the clergy that take him back to his time in Osirion and of the order.

Reaching into his pocket and breaking off a bread crust to feed a small brown water rat that is nestled beneath the pilgrim robes. Nobody seems to notice this or the fact that the golden robes and black oiled hair seem to ripple like a small heatwave, briefly showing scruffy golden hair and faded red wizard robes before going back to normal.

While the rat chews the morsel Bamil thinks of how to draw on this "cleansing fire" from the dawnflower, and goes back to reading.

On the trail of a crimelord
Listening is the most efficient way to find someone

Sitting in what is becoming my 'usual' place in Jeggy's Jug, slowly drinking my mug of Baslwief Brown ale, from my own mug of course. I have been asking people for days now where I can find Gaedren, but no one seems to know or care about what he is doing to the children.

Some of the merchants I have spoken to have told me about some others also looking for Gaedren, and some of them looked quite rough. I should take care if I come to the attention of any of these others.

Looking across the room I can see and hear much of the gossip so I might as well finish this depressing Sunday with a good ale and warmth of the fire. Stopping by for the usual small service at the ruined temple of Aroden today I was informed by the clerics that the city is trying to have it all knocked down. It is always a great shame to destroy any part of our history, especially that which looked after its citizens.

Glancing down at my mug and picking it up. "Anyway, to Cayden, do good, enjoy life and stand up for what you believe in." Tomorrow is another chance to find Gaedren.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
