Campaign of the Month: June 2022
Jonah received some troubling news from his circle. It might be worth to investigate the nature of those news, once the party is sufficiently prepared.
Deal with the Iron Throne
A spelljammer called Uzkur crash-landed in Toril some hundred years ago. In his diary, he wrote that he hid his ship in an abandoned flooded mine.
Finding the ship could lead to some great treasure, and – according to Finley – would also be “very cool”.
Gamalon Idogyr is the only person mentioned in the book who might still be alive, on this planet, and willing to help.
The Guild’s stashes
A harper told you about Guild stashes scattered throughout the city. These stashes contain equipment and money. They are very rarely checked and even when they are it is never thoroughly. The harper asked you to try to empty them while being unnoticed and keeping them seemingly untouched.
The Wyrm’s Crossing Killer
The Flaming Fist found multiple victims left in their locked rooms with no signs of break in. Their throats were slit, and there doesn’t appear to be any connection between the victims, seemingly random. Perhaps the So Far Group can continue their hobby of solving serial killings.
Xzar on the loose
You’ve been informed that one of the escapees from the Seatower prison was Xzar, a dangerous wizard who is not aligned with the guild.
Wringing Money from a Throne
Oselno, working for the Guild, is blackmailing the Iron Throne by threatening to reveal the names of their businesses, which will ruin their reputation.
You have been asked by Marjuline to fix this mess.
Raoden and Finley have begun working on the creation of a sentient wizard’s hat inhabiting the spirit of Raoden’s Childhood dog, Kitty. Raoden has acquired a custom made, purple wizard’s hat.
Finley and Raoden broke the process down to the following steps:
1.Find the soul of Kitty the dog.
2. Communicate with it and convince it to approach the mortal realm.
3. Summon it into the mortal realm.
4. Bind it to the hat.
Investigate the cult of The Preacher
Raoden has told you about The Preacher, a man going about disrupting religious ceremonies and recruiting people into his cult following the One True God. At least two patriar kids have gone through some sort of trial in his cult, with 1 coming back extremely religious and the other not coming back at all. There also seems to be some vampires involved too.
After witnessing the Preacher in action you tailed him to a dead end, only seeing him use a key on an unlocked door and enter. You realized this must be a magical key and want to talk to Marzat Creekleaf about it.
She told you it must be a unique item with both conjuration and transmutation powers.
The grave keeper’s chest
Under the bed in the old and abandoned grave keeper’s house you found a locked chest. Inside the chest was the corpse of a human female who was seemingly locked alive according to the scratch marks inside the chest.
After asking around you found out that a few years after the grave keeper’s disappearance his wife disappeared as well.
The haunted cemetery
Ever since the collapsing of the Tumbledown cliff which opened up the graves of the old Tumbledown graveyard there has been rumors of ghosts and paranormal activities in the graveyard’s area during the night. Rumor says that the ghosts of Szarr family came back to haunt them after their graves were exposed. A few years after the cliff collapsed Baurdy , the grave keeper, disappeared leaving no trail behind him. Inquisitor Adreanon Bernham said there have been incidents of grave robbing, and it was the Flaming Fist’s belief that the grave keeper was killed and disposed of during one such incident. Upon visiting the graveyard, you were attacked by a vampire thrall wearing a vest befitting a grave keeper.
Pocket of gems
You found a small sack of gems hidden in one of the slate crates shipped from the Whitburn’s query to the families estate.
After being informed Gerald said he would look into this matter.
A Garados Caravan
Sergor was notified by his order that a caravan of Garados will reach town in about 2 tendays, and was instructed to destroy it before it reaches the city.
The So Far Group dispatched of them adequately, and Sergor turned in their holy symbols, which were forged in a symbol of The Red Lady for him to wear proudly.
You heard that the lighthouse in Ulgoth’s Beard stopped working regularly, causing ships to crash at the mouth of the river Chionthar.
This was due to a combination of disgruntled villagers and outside evil influences. You successfully disposed of secret cult and renegotiated the terms, leaving both Baldur’s Gate and Ulgoth’s Beard satisfied.
Encrypted Gith diary
You found an old encrypted diary written in Gith in the ruins of Ulcaster’s School, but what does it hold?
You paid Keinder the code breaker 2000 gold to start working on the decryption. He also told you he would waive the payment in exchange for a purple pearl that is only found in the underdark.
After a king’s sum, Keinder translated the diary. It was Uzkur’s Captain’s Log. Continued in Independence Day!
A perfect potion of Heroism
In order to become her apprentice Raoden was tasked by Marzat Creakleaf with creating a perfect potion of Heroism. He has a month to accomplish this feat, and if he manages to make a better potion than the other apprentices she will accept him as her apprentice.
Raoden completed the potion and was accepted as an apprentice, partly due to the competition being deceased.
There’s been a streak of disappearing people, who were suspectedly murdered as blood streaks splatters were found where they disappeared from.
You found a acidic goo creature that entered Finley’s lab through the sink, and followed the trails of it to the source. It seemed to have been some sort of creature made of alchemical waste, sent by none other than Marzat’s apprentice to get rid of the competition. You defeated him and reported back to the flaming fist.
Hand over the full set of signatures
During an investigation into the series of cult murders, you met an adoring fan. He asked you all to sign his poster of the Baldur’s Gate Five, but since Finley wasn’t there he asked if you could please get him to sign it too so he can have the full set and bring it back to him. After getting Finley’s signature, Sergor hand-delivered it to a happy Mikayel.
A series of Cult murders
You were tasked by Holdran Blazespear with tracking down and stopping the ongoing series of cult murders occurring inside Baldur’s Gate. You’ve managed to track down the mad man behind these murders underneath the Hissing Stones and stop him.
A mysterious elf who works for the Harpers offered Oliver a job – find Vasq, a newcomer to Baldur’s Gate who works for an evil organization.
You helped him on the expedition, eventually killing a necromancer who took over the school. In his treasure, you found the ritual to restore Raoden’s connection to Max, and a the Vile Book of Evil Darkness.
You betrayed Vasq and handed him over to the Flaming Fist for the bounty.
Pick up the gilded flower petal
On Hammer 2nd Raoden commissioned a gilded sunflower with inlaid gems from a goldsmith. It was said to be ready for pick up in 10 to 15 days.
Raoden picked the petal up and is planning to use it for a secret spell he is too cool to share with us.
