Pandora Chronicles

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

Chapter 1: The Meeting
When Keoth met Adam

We opened our story with 2 strangers about to meet and embark on a great quest: Emelia Hart, the plucky orphaned street urchin, and Keoth Smith, the stalwart Runepriest from New Olympia.

Keoth Smith, a newly appointed Goliath Runepriest from the dwarven continent of New Olympia, was sent on a reconnacance mission to the human continent, Kybithia to investigate a mysterious finding. Upon his arrival he was greeted by Pastor David Sotherbee, a priest who sent out the call to New Olympia. He had been given a mysterious rune and had hoped that New Olympia could aid in it’s appraisal, as it seemed ancient and powerful. Intrigued, Keoth made arrangements to stay in the Kybithia, in hopes of unraveling the rune’s mysteries. However, due to the upcoming election of the new king, Pastor David informed Keoth of the lack of available lodging in the Merchant District and suggested Keoth look to the slums for available rooming. It came as good fortune that Keoth meet Watts, a loud-mouthed, short-tempered dwarven blacksmith. Watts offered Keoth a room in exchange for help running his blacksmith shop. Keoth, a journeyman blacksmith in his own right, delightfully took up Watts’s offer, determined to find the origins of the mysterious rune.

Meanwhile, in Kybithia’s slums district, a young street urchin was scavenging for her supper. After a successful “acquisition” the young Emelia Hart returned to her lonely house in the slums, where she ate quietly in hopes of her missing older brother’s return. There, she was approached by a brutish man seemingly looking for her. With a quick stab from her daggers, she sent the man fleeing from the shadows from whence he came. The next day was no different, as Emily went through her daily routine, she came home only to hear the sound of men waiting for her. The 2 men, going by the names of Vicks and Wedge proceeded to try and capture Emily, but to no avail, as she wounded Vicks, slashing him in the very same spot as she had before. The two fled, but they vowed they would be back.

The following day, Emily was cautious, watching her back to make sure she wouldn’t be accosted by the two thugs from the night before. When she returned home, she found not Vicks and Wedge waiting for her, but instead a busty female halfling waiting for her. The halfling introduced herself as “Biggs”, a local halfling thief lookng for an able hand, hearing how she handled Vicks and Wedge. She inquired if Emily was looking to make a big score. Emily was hesitant, but agreed, and so Biggs arranged to meet Emily outside her home the next night. The following evening, Biggs returned to meet Emily as planned. As the two snuck around the corner, Biggs handed Emily a vial, supposedly containing an invisibility potion. However, once taken, Emily felt woozy, Biggs had drugged her, and she fell unconcious.

Chapter 9: The Island and the Stowaway Princess

It was dawn when the elusive “Drifting Island” was spotted. The ship anchored itself roughly 20 feet away allowing the the members to take the rowboats to shore. Before they left, however, Captain Grzzbeard offered up the services of his finest crewmembers to aide the party in their search: Stooge the kenku lookout, Zug the hobgoblin quartermaster, Grizelda the captain’s half-orc foster daughter, Minsc the human navigator (and his miniature space hampster Boo), Edmund Sykes the half elven first mate and the captain’s foster son, the captain himself, though if he went, Sykes would have to stay to manage the ship. The party decided to take Zug, Minsc, and Sykes (to keep an eye on him and his attempts to charm Emily).

The seven sent out for shore. When they landed on the beach, they noticed the land was curved, and the party trudged upward over the beachy slope into the dense underbrush. The forest was thick and dense, covered with vines and palm trees. Emily decided she wanted to have fruit for breakfast, and so she decided to climb a palm tree in hopes of finding a coconut or two. Her efforts were met with hostility, however, as she was grabbed by a vine and drug out of the tree. Soon, living vines were sprouting form all over, grabbing the party from every which way. They managed to beat back the vines, but realized the dangers of this forest were everywhere. Between the carnivorous foliage and a dragon, the party had their work cut out for them. What other dangers awaited them on their exploration?

The party continued to cut through the branble, avoiding any more large bushes that looked like they could hide carnverous vines. As they continued through the dense forest, they were startled by Galadriel who had been following their path through the forest. She introduced herself as the former princess of Kybithia, and after some explanation of her reasons for being there and some squabbling between her and Emily, Keoth finally urged the party to head into the dense forest to continue with their mission. They didn’t get far, however before they encountered a small pack of large lizards. As they approached, the drakes began to growl, and the next thing the party knew, a dart whizzed by and shot Diana in the neck, knocking her out. Vrcingettorix took initiative and began to attack the drakes. It wasn’t long, however, before larger drakes joined the fray; the party had to figure out who was attacking them.

After managing to drive back the drakes, the party was surrounded by what appeared to be humans and larger lizard people dressed in tribal garb. They spoke to them in a foreign tongue which Pastor David identified as draconic. The party was ordered to drop their weapons, and upon doing so, were led back to a secret camp located within the center of the island. There, they were led to kneel before what appeared to be an older lizardman dressed in regal garb. Another man of human decent approached the party introducing himself as Ookami, and in turn introduced the older lizardman as Bazha, the spiritual leader of the Paradwyn tribe. The man asked for the party’s reasons for being on the island, and after the party explained themselves, Bazha ordered for the “intruders” to take the customary test of passage, to prove their worth to their goddess Semunaya. The party would choose four of their team members to enter the cave. Should they come back alive, they would be permitted to stay on the island as friends and allies, however, should they fail, the remaining party members would be killed. After much debate, the party decided that Keoth, Vercingettorix, Emily, and Galadriel would enter the cave(with severe protest from Pastor David). Keoth instructed the rest of them to protect Diana at all costs. The four were unbound, given back their weapons, and with a deep breath, entered the cave, unknowing what horrors awaited them.
