Carrion Crown Adventure Path – Game Session – 062

Game summary for July 3, 2014, Carrion Crown Adventure Path campaign, Ashes at Dawn adventure; PCs included Dario Malavasi (human oracle), Emilian Sandulescu (human paladin/ranger), and Gnok Thatek (dwarf monk), accompanied by NPC companions Alleric Swiftblade (half-elf rogue) and Nyssa Pagonis (human cleric).

The team entered Caliphas and found the Hound’s Tooth tavern. The group had a good meal, a bath, a shave, and got their clothing stitched up and cleaned. They then got to know some of the townsfolk and found out about a contact in the Esoteric Order of the Palatine Eye named Abraun Chalest. They agreed to go to the Quarterfaux Archives the next morning to meet with him. The group then learned the city had several murders over the last few weeks with the bodies found drained of blood and crumbled to ash in sunlight!

The next morning they learned of another murder next door! They went over and met Captain Boverde Hoptler of the city watch. He was initially suspicious of the group, but he took a liking to the paladin, Emilian. The team discovered the bodies had been decapitated and impaled with a wooden stake. In this instance, there were 3 bodies, not just one.

After looking around the crime scene, the party went to the Quarterfaux Archives and met Abraun Chalest. After talking for a while, they convinced him to introduce them to the local chapter of the Esoteric Order and seek admission to the fabled Esoteric Vaults. The next meeting would be at the Haraday Theater on Oathday.
