Dramatis Personæ

Wherein the Lost City is Explored … and Hidden Dangers are Revealed

  • At the gates of Yaqut min Alraml, Finn Sardock sends Lan-Fan and Thorn into the city to find a high spot to recon while he and the rest of the warband escort the Fa’iel to some buildings to set up camp. The scouts are instructed to seek out a specific temple.
  • After, the warband ventures deeper into the city, intent on that temple, but deviate to investigate a dry public bath with many bodies. As night is falling, they return to the Fa’iel, intent on heading out on the morrow.
  • Both Arn and Finn suffer serious nightmares that night, and their troubled sleep is disturbed by cries of people who have discovered their kinsmen have vanished. Among those who have disappeared are the sheikh himself and Zyanra, Thorn’s new … friend.
  • With Zistral tracking, the warband follows the trail of some very large snake-like creatures which many of them suspect to be yuan-ti.

Evidently, I’ve been providing the wrong Twitch address on these although Ronnke’s page simulcast with ours so…
  • We’ve also spun up a Twitter account to report our various statuses. Feel free to follow us @OlympusRPGGroup for news and updates.
