Our Campaign resumes in Drybone Valley, here the Original Party has fled after becoming fugitives of the Regelothian Military. The Purge has been completed and its end came with the decapitation of the Varrangoin’s Trade Capital, the Crossing. The Burning of the Crossing caused the entirety of the population to flee Southward and make their way to Drybone Valley as refugees.
The Original Party after arriving in Drybone Valley with Sigfraed unexpectedly disbanded with the only remaining member of the Party staying to help Edrin, Sigfraed, and the Hell’s Vanguard being the Elf Cleric, Terra Woodsoul; the other members of the party continued either Southward or Eastward making their adventures there.
While the Hell’s Vanguard is searching for more people to go on an expedition and streams of refugees flowed from the North, two adventurers (Brian? and Casey) arrived in Drybone Valley, the first arriving from the Near Wastes far to the North and the other arriving robbed and left destitute in this barren wasteland. For whatever reason the two adventurers looking for work ultimately came under the employment of Edrin and the Hell’s Vanguard, together this new Party would venture Eastward to Ansurin and across the Lake to the Poli of Sarnath.
Before the Groups departure from Drybone Valley, the Party had encountered a destroyed caravan which was crawling with the Undead (Casey would get sick from covering himself in dead Human organs), after killing the Undead and ransacking the Caravan for valuables the Party would return to Drybone Valley and report their findings to Edrin and the Hell’s Vanguard.
The Group attempted to leave Drybone Valley, but a fiasco regarding a Komodo Dragon caused a slight deal and quite a spectacle in the middle of Drybone Valley. After this grand event the party went Eastward across the Nordrejur Lands (in Steppess) and pushed forth to Ansurin (as the party made its way Casey was abducted by a enormous Eagle and was later found in the city of Ansurin by the party), as the party made its way signs of the plague became quite apparent and on the parties arrival to Ansurin the entire Western Gate was under siege by the Undead Host. Sneaking through the unmolested Southern Gate the party entered Ansurin and commandeered a boat and made their way to Sarnath.
Arriving in Sarnath the ship was docked off the coast and the party was scuttled onto the coast (as the port had been destroyed during the Culling of Sarnath in 8A and the danger that could be imposed by the Undead overrunning the ship). Here on the coast the party made its way towards the lighthouse (the nearest, tallest building) to get a better view of their surroundings, however, the lighthouse was not uninhabited. Entering the lighthouse the party made its way further upwards until they attracted the attention of its inhabitant, before the Party (Edrin, Brain?, Casey, and Terra) stood the Lich-Lord Azol, one of the original Cultists of Abadon from 7A.
The Party fought long and hard against Azol, and ultimately through a magical ability possessed by Brian? the Party was able to defeat the ancient Lich-Lord and uncover great amounts of material regarding the Cult to be transported back to Drybone Valley so that a counter against the Cult could be found. After gathering all the materials recovered from the lighthouse, the Party returned to the Boat and made their way back to Ansurin.
Arriving back in Ansurin the city had survived, however, a total of 66% of the population had died, but the Undead Host was nowhere to be found.
