From the Ashes of The Great Convergence
End of AWE-I, Witch Island, Nisse Diplomacy, Dragon Hunters
You have begun your first ‘Dragon-Stomp’ (Thanks Crucius), and are tracking the Black Dragon Silurian in the Salt Marshes on the Green Sea. You have captured the Pirate Ship Silurian’s Rampage, and driven the majority of her crew into the drink. Your have conscripted 30 Otter Tribe Pirates to your cause, and rescued 18 Alfar Refugees from certain death at the hands of the pirates. Their Captain, Silurian’s Son, has escaped and is presumed to be moving to warn his draconian father of your coming. With time being of the essence you have swiftly made a pact with the Otter Chieftain to determine the location of the Wyrm’s lair – and are now closing in on him…
Not much time for a recap this week so this will be short. The mission to the Witch Islands has revealed an isolated group of powerful abberitions. The fact that divination magic doesn’t work in this area means that the Witches cannot follow you, so their threat remains minimal at this time. They are very powerful however, and seem possessed of great wealth.
Negotiations with the Nisse didn’t happen the way anyone would have wanted. You met successfully in the city of Orb with the Nisse Ambassador – Karunus. He then agreed to take you to the city of Port; where you were to meet the Oracular Council. This ended in tragedy, as the council had been infiltrated by the minds of the Absolutes despite the best efforts of the Nisse. When Oracle Amitri agreed to heal the mind of the young Human Oracle Jason, the Absolutes attempted to destroy you all. The mighty Eddore struck, and without divine intervention in the form of the gods striking directly against the Absolute Sovern, all would have been lost. All of the Oracles with the exception of Jason and Amitri were transformed into Absolute Warriors, and you were forced to slay them. Garanimos later used Legend Lore to research Eddore, and found that there is a vast underground sea in which dwells the Absolute Council, and that Eddore once traded blows with the God Executor for eight days before both of them retreated… For their part the Nisse, still reeling from the force of the Absolutes’ Attack, agreed to join the Lake Swan Alliance immediately. Karunus and his staff will be setting up an embassy at Mootfort within the week!
