The Sleeping City

Kay, the Wendigo and the Missing Doctor

After it captures, Kay fought a Wendigo but was luckily rescued in-extremis by the group. Thanks to Melody power of perception, it was found that the Wendigo nutsack is the creature weak point, something that Siku took good notes of.

After our escape from the fighting pit, the group was looking for medical help but quickly found out that the doctor was missing. A curious note from Veronica Raith left Kay to believe she was involved in his disappearance. While the rest of the group was getting read to meet Veronica, a noisy and paranoid Kay was hatching a different plan. While the group was discussing with Miss Raith about information and payment, which for some is very important, Kay tried to sneak about the club, believing he might find the doctor here, this in turn, attracted unwanted attention from the cop.

Kay is gone - Sad bear face

A Bear in the City Blog:

Our investigation suggest Mr. Felini might the target of the attack by the houli. While checking out Mr.Felini restaurant while wearing my stunning little black dress (great for shapeshifter – swioosh and it off!) we got spotted by someone. Kay went back to investigate but he got captured (sad bear face). We think eversafe is holding him and went there. We have not found him but they seem to have a nice security package for the bar however (sad bear face again).

Hunters, hunted
in which we are mauled by a Wendigo

I was remembering something yesterday. Some unfinished business.

Shortly after I met “K”, we both decided that we had something to teach the other. We headed out to the cabin, in winter, for some time to train. I attempted to teach the virtue of patience to K, but was interrupted by a wolf howl. Investigating, we found another cabin with a bloody scene – wolves had attacked, and were summarily slaughtered. I cast a tracking spell to find out what did this, and we set off.

We tracked down a pack of wolves, who set a rearguard to attempt to stall us. We took care of them, and continued on – the wolves were not the source of the scene.

We finally found the rest of the pack – they had cornered someone against a wall and were going to attack. We intervened, scattering the wolves as the man “cowered” … only to transform into a beast and spring at us. I don’t remember much after that.

I found out through later research that this man is what is known as a Wendigo – related to the Loup Garous kind of were, not fully in control of himself. He’s still out there, a threat still waiting.

Some missed highlights:

  • Cayden chopping wood (while busy dodging the log like an active enemy who needed to be defended against)
  • Cayden playing Yahtze all night trying to get a perfect game
  • Lyn trying to “sneak” through the forest (her highest stealth roll was -2 I think)
  • Lyn trying to “dodge” the Wendigo, she took 17 damage from one hit
  • Cayden trying to defeat the Wendigo in a one-on-one fight (this did not go as badly as I assumed it would)
  • “Get off my Thor”

Looking for the Hoolie's Owner
In which we try preventing more kidnapping and "K" is paranoid.

Other players should feel free to post adventure logs. I’ve only been posting them because no one else seems interested.

According to Thor’s research, the behavior of the Hoolie that ate “J” indicated that it was probably a pet and that someone else was responsible for kidnapping “J” and Linda.

After some research I discovered that the other victim was a drug dealer named “Whistles” who went missing about 5 days after “J”, and about 5 days before Linda.

So now we’re planning to try to intercept this “Owner” and prevent them from kidnapping any more victims. I’ve been scouting out the tunnels in the vicinity since it looks like that’s how the “Owner” is taking away their victims.

I’m not certain why the others are helping search for this “Owner”. Thor and the Bear may have some mystical responsibility to fighting Monsters, but only as a hobby. “M” is a bit more of a mystery. She seems to hang out with us to because she’s curious to find out what’s going on, but that hardly seems a reasonable reason to risk her life. I should beware of her agenda until I have found out more information.

Green lumpy things
In which we meet a Hoolie

After leaving the guards locked up in their own prison, we continued our search for the missing people. After running around in the tunnels for a while, we managed to find the girl that the Doctor was looking for. Someone had replaced her skin with vines.

The Doctor and the Bear managed to get her stabilized and we took her to the hospital. Then Thor cast a spell to help me to locate “J” and came up with the following:

There once was a hobo named Jay
Who found himself in a bad way,
Captured and beaten,
Swallowed and eaten,
He’s now in the realm of the Fey.

Then after much resistance and some misdirection, I convinced Thor to open up a passage to the Fey realm. It turned out to be a fairly pleasant experience to begin with. We met a nice fey called Tum who managed to find “J” in return for some food (note to self, stock up on candy bars before dealing with fey).

“J” and another victim had been absorbed by some sort of fey Monster. But a simple spell from Thor managed to blast the Monster to pieces and the Bear wielded her magic to separate the humans from the Monsters. We returned to the regular world and brought “J” and the other victim to the Doctor’s clinic.

The Mystery of the Missing People
In which we find a (probably unrelated) gladiator ring.

It all started when I noticed that I hadn’t seen “J” around lately. I checked out his usual haunts but couldn’t locate him. After checking with his acquaintances, I went to see if “M” knew anything helpful.

While at Darcy McGee’s, I found out that the Doctor was looking for someone as well. With the assistance of the Bear and Thor we discovered that they were in the tunnels under the city.

I was scouting out the tunnels ahead of the others when I ran into a couple guards. After they ignored my advice to avoid a confrontation, I rendered them unconscious. After going through the door they guarded we discovered a gladiatorial ring where Monsters fought for the entertainment of others.

I have no proof of this, but I believe that someone is rounding up monsters and turning them into Monsters to fight each other. If this is the case, then I will need to find the ones responsible and put a stop to it. The world doesn’t need any more Monsters.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
