Kingmaker: The Nation of Phoenicia

24 Calistril 4699

Toba, Vivandrel and Eduard Medyev answer the call of the Swordlords and meet with Lord Thrush, who presents them with the following charter:

Be it so known that the Swordlords of Restov acting for the greater good and by the authority vested unto them by the office of the Dragonscale Throne have granted the bearer rights of travel within the wilderness region known as the Greenbelt, and charged them with the duty of producing accurate and current maps of the area east of the Skunk River, north of the Shrike River, and southwest of the Narvess Road. The bearer is also charged to uphold the laws of Restov, striving against banditry and all other unlawful activity and threats to the peace and stability of the Kingdom, and hereby granted all rights and powers thereunto required.

This charter is to expire one year and one day from the date of its execution.

So witnessed and sealed on this 24th day of Calistril in the Year 4699, Absalom Reckoning.

After travelling to Oleg’s Trading Post, they defeat a number of bandits and meet Tyg-Titter-Tut and Perlivash.

Radish Patch Kobolds
9 Pharast 4699

The party explores the eastern edge of the Narlmarches and encounters a number of kobolds feasting on moon radishes. Following the kobolds to their lair, an abandoned silver mine, they learn of the kobold-mite conflict.

21 Pharast 4699

The party explores the northwest of their territory, but turns back when they spot a small family of trolls in the distance.

Poor Vivandrel
23 Gozran 4699

The party kills an aggressive giant frog, flees from an angry bear, and Vivandrel gets her blood drained by a giant tick when they assault the mite’s cavern complex. They decide to retreat for the day and set up camp just outside the mite’s tree.

Poor, poor Vivandrel
28 Gozran 4699

The party descends into the mite’s caves to clear them out. They save a kobold being tortured by mites (Mikmek) and find themselves at a large crevice; a number of tree roots form a series of rough handholds, but when Vivandrel tries to cross, she gets severely bitten by a giant centipede. Mikmek jumps in bravely to protect her and is instantly killed. A fighting retreat gives Toba enough time to kill the centipede while Eduard defends him.

They drag Vivandrel outside, and the centipede’s poison combined with the tick’s disease make her utterly miserable.

29 Gozran 4699

The party defends itself against a mite scouting party returning from spying on the kobolds. They take a few days to recover Vivandrel’s strength and then head back to Oleg’s. They return to the Temple of the Elk with Jhod and kill its mad guardian. Leaving Jhod there to begin cleaning up, they head south and come across a boggard by the name of Garuum.

Tartuk's Fall
7 Desnus 4699

Vivandrel falls into a coma caused by a relapse of her blood draining/disease/poison just as Toba and Eduard engage Tuskgutter. Ariel and Beth appear and introduce themselves.

The party entrusts Viv to Jhod’s care until she’s ready to adventure again. They return to the Sootscale kobolds and kill Tartuk before returning to Oleg’s to return Svetlana’s ring and present Tuskgutter’s head.

Finishing up
12 Desnus 4699

The party finishes exploring their charter area, killing a couple of Taztlwyrms and befriending a starving thylacine. All that remains is to deal with the Stag Lord.

The Stag Lord's Camp
17 Desnus 4699

The party presents a matched pair of taztlwym heads to Oleg and returns the fangberries they collected to Bokken.

They disguise themselves as bandits and infiltrate the Stag Lord’s encampment. Beth and Ariel stand watch with Veter just outside the fort to await Toba and Eduard’s signal. Toba and Eduard kill the guards on watch and unlock the front door, then wait for their reinforcements.

The Stag Lord
23 Desnus 4699

Vivandrel returns and goes to reinforce Toba and Eduard along with Veter, but Beth and Ariel are held up by a sudden mite attack.

The party attacks the bandits, and Akiros Ismort sees his chance. He tears off his Stag amulet and sides with the party. Together, they fool Auchs to going back upstairs and engage and kill the Stag Lord himself.

Later than night, Vivandrel sneaks upstairs and tries to slit Auchs’ throat while he’s sleeping. He takes a couple of swings but is no match for her, so he falls on his knees and begs for mercy. Toba and Eduard arrive and confront Vivandrel. Vivandrel agrees to spare Auchs’ life and he swears his unending loyalty to her. Viv is a little uncomfortable with this, so commands Auchs to obey Eduard.
