Curse of the beast lord/Princes of hell.

While continuing further into the college we came across a fountain spraying black liquid, even though it smelled like fresh spring water. Cyrus drank some, even though it looked (to me at least) to be dangerous, and then preceded to throw up. I didn’t catch all that was said about it. Next thing we know the rogue stumbled forward and behind her a red-skinned man with huge horns and a robe stood there. Bugger put up a fight until Sebastian grappled him, and held him still for the rogue to get good shots in as well as allowed me to get a couple in. But then he broke out and darkness surrounded us and I couldn’t see. Sebastian somehow managed to see him and tackle him to the ground. He said “you made a powerful enemy today. My masters will destroy you puny mortals,” and then he disappeared. We rested by the fountain for the night.

We almost died today. We went into the mage’s college and searched the eight sarcophagi to see if we could find the flower. Some of us got greedy and tried to take rings and such from these dead mages, and five stood up to face us, including the arch mage. The fight got intense, but we managed. Derek, however, had taken so much damage from the negative energy blasts of the arch mage that he passed out after becoming violently ill. We stuck him in a sarcophagus so he could be safe as he rested. Sebastian was nearly killed as he could not dodge the three swinging axes in time. I crammed a health potion down his throat and saved his life. I carried him with us until Pandora set off an alarm and we were attacked by kobolds. I shot an arrow through Pandora’s legs and killed the first one I saw. I took out three more and Cyrus took out the last one. Pandora found a ranger named Michel held in one of the kobold’s tents, and as a reward for saving him he has agreed to stand watch as we rested, but not before we emptied the chests of treasure the kobold’s had. Inside the first chest was a heavy mace, which had the mace craved into a dragon’s head. Swings like a dream. Ironically it’s the part frost dragon, me, that gets it.

At dawn we met Simon, and he has agreed to make a potion that should cure us if we fetch him the following ingredients: 10 blue dragon scales, a black dragon’s grind stone, a jug of yellow spider vile (they are tropical spiders), 5 crimson racers, and 5 crimson night shades. While in town gathering supplies for the upcoming adventures, I stumbled upon a blue dragon scale and made a down payment on it. We also found out that crimson racers grow near graves of those with great magic, and lucky for us there is an old mage’s college not to far from here—a necromancy college. In preparation Pandora and I went and got our weapons blessed. When we came back there was something odd about the wizard. Cyrus was floating a couple of feet off of the ground, his skin had a tinge of purple, and it was just strange. After a few hours the air popped with magical energy and suddenly there was a raven on his shoulder. Her name is Hira. I still can’t believe all of that was for summoning his familiar.

Mom and Dad have agreed to watch Lance. Pandora has become a hellkat and her brother a salamander. On the way here Sebastian attempted to fly, waking up a family of shocky lizards. We took care of them easily. Mom has just left on guild business, Dad is coaching Cyrus and giving him tips and spell suggestions. Once night falls we’ll venture off in the wood to find Simon, as he actually lives nearby. Maybe he might be able to help us.

The plan worked last night. Two clerics tried to abduct me. We killed them and their ally that was inside the rundown church out in the fields. The monk informed us all three were wearing beastly god symbols, Tiamat was clearly one of the ones worshipped. We continued down a trap door we found and fought two undead nagas, and we found the boy tied up and he introduced himself as Lance. Cute kid. The monk saw, and pointed out to us a floating, black octahedron with ruins on it. After looking at it for a while the wizard recited: “May the will of the Beastmaster be praised.” Once that happened sweet smelling mist came fro the box and engulfed us all. As we were heading back I felt ill and passed out. I woke up to Lance crying, his legs were no longer there but were replaced with a body of a snake. I also had new…features. I have two horns coming from my head, a snout with very sharp teeth, and grey-ish scales that are growing out of my back and shoulders. Thinking we could find some clue as to what happened to us we went back to the church coming across ginger twins, Pandora and Derek. After searching the church over we found a journal mentioning a guy named Simon, it’s not much but it’s something.When Pandora asked what had happened to us the wizard told them everything and even repeated the phrase, and now she and Derek will wake up soon as monsters too. On the plus side I now know the monk’s name is Sebastian and the wizard’s name is Cyrus. They’re turned into a harpie and ooze respectively. We are to head out to Redriver to see if Mom and Dad will watch Lance as we try to find a cure.

I have made it to Innistrad quite uneventfully; was kind of hoping for a test of strength early. Upon entering, I came across a woman crying on a bench by the center of town. Her son has been kidnapped, she was not sure by what or who, just that he was by himself in the fields around dusk. Two strange looking fellows, one in a tunic and other simple garbs and the other was wearing a dark green robe, by comparison were near her taking an interest in her story. Well the monk-fellow was; the city-boy wizard was trying to decide if he wanted to try the local dish—by asking a crying woman! We three met at the tavern and found out from the Keep that the little boy has not been the only victim, and agreed that we should do something about this. The monk suggested that I be disguised and hobble around like an old woman. Tonight we set our plan in motion.

I’m to start my adventure by traveling north-west to the town of Innistrad. It’s not far away form Redriver, but every adventurer starts somewhere, even if it’s close to home, right? I should be there in about two days time.
