Culling the Herd

With rain falling heavily, the group decides to ignore the setting of any traps or doing anything tactical whatsoever. They instead move through the forest on the border of the town. As they reach Botwin’s farm, some distracting footwear draws the attention of a couple of cultists that were scanning the area. A fight ensues in a series of narrow alleyways. As Ayri tries to flank she ses foot in a scythejaw set by the farmers. With many a failed attack the battle rages on and eventually the magical boots worn byBasiliske Wyrmstrome draw even more attention. Kord smiled down on them and they were successful in dropping the foes. As they continued their sweep of the southern side of town, the reach The Thirsty Puppy where once again those pesky boots draw the attention of another band of cultists. These foes were seemingly preoccupied in burning down Carawynns Curiosities but quickly fell on Basiliske Wyrmstrome lighting him on fire and continually throwing oil on him to strengthen the flames. The warlord saw death when a pale skinned humanoid dressed in curious leathers moved through shadows and delivered a mighty blow with his dagger. Khazum Lightbeard administered healing to Basiliske Wyrmstrome but at the cost of engulfing himself in flames while Oxull and Ayri fought on. On a cowardly move Khazum Lightbeard jumps in a large barrell of rain water and exstinguishes the flames. The shadow walker proved to be leathal with every strike but was eventually dropped. Battered and bruised, the group investigates Carawynns Curiosities where Carawynn was not herself. Seemingly possessed by her vampirism she unable to control her magical energies as she shifted in and out of normalcy. The adventurers decided to leave the fang she needed to cure herself and then they exited the building without confrontation. Further inspection of the derelict town revealed an unlocked door to the local confectioner, but once again those pesky boots drew attention before the group could be tactical. Oxull managed to get inside the confectioner and as he snacked on some of the candy he cleverly set a trap that backfired completely. The rest of the group moved into action against several cultist and a strange shadow wolf that clearly was not from this realm. The battle intensified when Oxull became gravely wounded but, he pulled through in the end. As the shadowy wolf tasted death Oxull was overcome with an urge to march straight toward the onyx tower. Realizing the fighter wasn’t himself Basiliske Wyrmstrome tackled him and the group pulled him back into the confectionary and slapped some sense into him. Curious movement in the cemetary caused the group to investigate. As they stand at the cemetary gates, strange vapors are escaping the ground and moving towards the tower. As the group plans their next move, Basiliske Wyrmstrome grabs his chest in excruciating pain…
