Here is a recap of session 1
Gorn the Cleric a PC is brought to the stage. He was a slave in a temple outside of our starting town and over the period of 30 years he picked up his connection to his god. After these many years he was offered a quest of some importance (help me out I cannot remember what it was.) He was sent down the to the wharf next morning early where he ended up meeting a man Stephan and a half-orc mercenary called Smudge. They both talked to Stephan and learned more about their work and quest. The fishy thing is that Stephan has one idea and the group that Gorn had another.
The work that Stephan wants is to help him ship some wild white horses to the elves up north.
Now to introduce the third PC Tirla Mintlpop. She a Halfling that has been in the town homeless, penniless and without a bath. She starts out by having a dream of Stephan. In the morning Tirla wakes up hungry and goes to the market place to steal some food. She encounters Stephan there and he gives her some food. After Stephan heads off through the streets and curious Tirla tails him through the streets down to the dock and the inn the Rotten Fish. Here is the point where Stephan meets Gorn and Smug. They check in and make their deal and Stephan leaves and starts to talk to Tirla. He offers her a place after she shows off her skills. She does a standing back flip and makes a dagger dance over her knuckles.
In step Smudge and Gorn, they are have the rest of the day and evening before they leave town. They settle in at the inn the Rotten Fish to drink the day away and start too. Gorn with his inexperience with alcohol becomes quite tipsy. As they are looking around for someone to start a fight with Tirla comes in and recognizes the two fellows that were with Stephan. After introductions had finished Smug bought Tirla a drink and she sipped at the ale while she told stories.
Part way through the morning (that is right it is still the morning here) they notice someone playing dice. Smudge asked Tirla is she knows how to play dice. She said that she has a few times but she does not totally know this game. So the two gents let the lady join them and one of them called Moric won every time. After Tirla was pretty much broke but the noble and kind Smudge tried his best to win back the money. This was so unsuccessful that he asked for some dice from the bar keep. Moric still wins and he goes on his way leaving the party back in the Rotten Fish.
Remember earlier how the pair wanted to start a fight well here comes the epic tale (cough cough.) A man dressed for a fight with bulging muscles (maybe an exaggeration) slapped the ass of the some what attractive bar maid. This made Smug mad and he went over to the man and said apologize. After some hemming and hawing and a spilled beer they decided to go out side to fight over it. Their eyes were shining with anger and their swords were about to be drawn. Little under three feet Tirla Mintlpop walked right up to them and said now boys there is not need to kill each other. You both have weapons the all men are born with use them she points to her fist. So they agree and the man swings back to hit Smug but it is a glancing blow. Smug deftly swings his fist and lays the man out in one swing. Tirla Mintlpop steps up and after checking with the man man times declares Smug the winner. This mostly likely will become an epic story of Tirla Mintlpop .
The three new companions and Stephan get on a boat that goes out to ocean and stays along the coast and go a little bit up another river further north. As her normal she climbs all around the boat and tells stories to the man in the crows nest. After four days travel they go up a river a little bit and dock in West Port. There they meet Kalanos and board his river boat where the companions and Stephan go further up river.
The boat was being rowed up a patchy forested river. All went calmly as it can with Tirla around. She went up front and kept watch then bored went to the back of the boat and tried to fish while merrily whistling to the wind. Abruptly the boat stopped and some arrows were fired from the shore. There was some peppering of fire and some bloody shots back and forth as some of the humanoids from the shore started to swim over. During this time one of the rowers in the boat attacked Smudge. towards the end of the fight as the humans that got the the boat were killed and the archers were being killed Tirla stood up and yelled leave and you will not be followed and killed. This did not work of course. Well the battle ended with some might swings on the parts of the companions and Stephan. Head were cut off with one swing and a body was cleaved 1/3 straight down the middle. After the battle ended they went ashore to check out the bodies and untie the chain that stopped the boat. To note the fighters all had scarred ankles and wrists
we received 3 gold total from fight.
After that we continued up stream and got to a dock. Stephen went one way after a conversation and said to ask for Pytor, his brother, at the homestead. He said that Misha lives at the cabin and runs a ferry from the dock and that the trail by the cabin should reach the homestead. He would meet us there. The Companions walked up to the cabin and Tirla knocked at the door and next thing you know it a mangy bear came running down the hill towards them…to continue next session
