FRoSTBiTTEN - Season #1 - FrostGrave Campaign

Episode 2 - Genie in a Bottle
Vornhearst Epilogue

The Necromancers Crypt

"Damn that pint-sized, pointy nosed, avocado!" bellowed Vornhearst.

The necromancer spun around in a rage and kicked a loose skull laying on the ground. It sailed through the cold air of the crypt and smashed into the face of Vornhearst's apprentice Malyn knocking him off the barrel he had been sitting on.

"The genie's lamp could have been mine, and that little gutter snipe ran away with it" fumed the necromancer.

The last trip into the city was not without its rewards, two ancient grimoires and a sack of gold was nothing to sneeze at. The necromancer stoked his ragged long beard and thought to the days ahead. He now had apprentice and six semi-reliable henchman. With recent purchases, Vornhearst was sure his next trip into the city would be more profitable.

Geniez are Weeniez

KryKy wiped the blood from his knuckles as ZiMPLToN lay there whimpering like the dawg he wuz, all da whilez likkin his fresh wounds az if dat would help,… "Howz wuz I ta knowz dat dat Skroll wuzn't wurth da parchment it wuz on Boz?" was what had led to da beating ZiMPLToN was now slowly trying to recover from.  Of allz da timez for a Skroll of Bind Daemon ta fail,… it hadz ta be ZiMPLToNZ  ineptitudez dat mezzed it up.

KryKy felt better as he made his way back to his chamber,… Nuttin like a bit of discipline when it wuz called for; KryKy didn't feel  remorze for his axetionz, ZiMPLToN had gottin exaktly wut he dezerved .  Now bak in hiz chamber KryKy reflekted on the outing his Band of Hooliganz had returnerd from az he propped hiszelf up on da 2 Grimiorez dey had found,.. Az much az he hated ta thinkz it,… dat Geniez treazure had gift'd dem wit one of da finest Tapestriez he ad ever zeen, it brought a fine amount of coin at da market and dat coin had been put ta good uze.

Nowz SNaGGLETOOTH had a perfekt Kennil ta kall iz own and wouldn't be beggin all da time ta take carez of hiz bizinezz outside,.. Nowz he livez outside andz enjoyd dem skrapz dey be givin him and KryKy didn't have ta hearz him skratchin at dat door at all hourz ta be left outzide.  KoRWiN da Krozzbowzman be liken hiz new Krozzbow wit dat extra punch andz best of allz,… he wuz able ta hire a a proper GreenSkin Knight ta join da Rankz.  Dem bookz dey had found could waitz - afta just a brief skimmin,…. KryKy knew dey would give him a headzache.

KryKy blew da kandle out az he laid down and slowly drifted ta sleep,…. soon dey wouldz be headin back and soon dey would be seeinz wut elze da Fatez had instore for hiz group.

Der & Back Again

KryKy had made it through his first foray into the ruins unscathed as had his group of hooligans,… as he and his group made there way about the ruins on the outskirts of Felstad – for this he was grateful – as a Goblin had every right to be,… their strength came in numbers and although he was satisfied by the band he had at his disposal,… he still yearned for more members.

Prior to venturing into the unknown he and his apprentice ZiMPLToN had feverishly worked on a construct and as the Fatez would have it the attempt to bring life into this creation had succeeded – now "NiM~RoD" as the thing came to be known would add its services to the cause,… Numbers it seemed made KryKy happy and ZiMPLToN was happy as well,… no beatings would occur this night.

Reflecting on the gains he had made during the expedition as he relaxed in the abandoned laboratory they had found after their first run through the ruins, he was most pleased with the fact that bringing "NiM~RoD" to life had been easier than he had first thought it might be,… in fact he felt more confident about the process and knew it would be even easier the next time.

Calling his crew to a meeting in the dust filled dankness that was the main room of their new base camp KryKy let all know that in three days,… they would venture forth once more  /  The group agreed and some noted that they had heard others were searching the ruins as well – in fact, a few mentioned that the same day they had been exploring they could have sworn they heard the sounds of battle.  KryKy had hoped they they had not heard these things as he knew his fellow goblins may not be as brave as he when it comes to battle,… he to had heard the sounds that day and could have sworn he heard the gasps of someone else attuned to the mystical energies let out a gasp before falling to the ground.

"Never youz worries bout dat!" he stated as leaving the chamber,… all the while thinking to himself if his powers would once again prove to be of benefit, "We Gotz Dis!" he said as making his way to the chamber he called his own.

Recovering from the First Exploration

The old kobold was startled awake by a painful ache in his nasal passages and quickly sat up while opening his eyes.  Grateful to be surrounded by near-total darkness, the familiar scent of his den comforted him, despite the pain in his snout from the luckiest of crossbow shots.

"You're awake, that's good", came a voice from across the den, Chelios immediately recognized the hissless accent of a Kuo-Toa and attempted to prepare for possible combat.  The voice continued, "Tộc trưởng, If I meant you harm, would I not have killed you while you slept?  It is I, Tootoo, who healed your wounded snout, for I wish to be your student."

"You wish to learn from me?", croaked Chelios.  "Yes, Tộc trưởng, I do, for you have survived the Thành phố của tổ tiên without falling to the ancestral curse.  I wish to learn their secrets, if you're returning there."

Just then, Chelios heard the quiet clicking of claws on the den's floor and the familiar hiss of his apprentice, Tkachuck, "The Kuo-Toa speaks truly, Tộc trưởng, and he's demonstrated skill in healing.  Not only you, but also Roberts, and even the con rồng, both Ramsay and Sandor.

Chelios reflected for a moment, finally hissing, "Tkachuck, show your brother apprentice to your shared den and teach him the way of Các yếu tố.  In a while, I shall check on any special needs."

Once the two apprentices had left, the wizard rose and began checking on his retainers.  The Kobolds-at-Arms and Infantry-Kobolds had been unharmed and were currently hunting and gathering for a meal.  The thief Roberts had been badly wounded while fighting a skeleton, but had managed to bring back treasure, and was currently recovering.  Seeing the thief's horrible head wound, Chelios exclaimed, "Roberts, I'm happy you survived your fight, but you look DREADFUL!"

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.
