Synopsis:
After a night of party at the village of Village of Howaito Rokku who are more than happy of knowing that Onedea and his Quikasa Gnolls are dead the Band of the Wolf speak with Doraku about the Village of Lasimar.

He agrees to travel the Mountains of Ice to the Village of Kuroiwa wiith the Band of the Wolf and waits patiently to their definitively answer about helping the peopleof Lasimar. A trio of Shimo Kyojin
attack the caravan. Doraku refuses to help under the assumption that the Band hasn’t decided to help Lasimar yet but Raizak convinces him that their intentions are to help. With spells, arrows and melee attacks, they defeat the frost giants.

Arriving to the Lasimar Rice Hamlet they find Venter Tun and a camp with two military patrols. He has been trying to help the village, entering with food for the villagers and leaving before nightfall. He tells them that he send messenger to Waping Piao to report the problem and that Shan Hou-Yan and Tun Mi Lung have increase the damage to the Village of Lasimar and now they don’t allow people to enter. Doraku is unable to enter the Village without raising suspictions from Shan Hou-Yan and stays away, promising that he will find our about the so called ‘curse’ of the Village and report back to them.

Venter Tun The Black and his patrols create a diversion while the Band of the Wolf infiltrate the village just to find the two old men Hui Ash and Fei Lung playing Maghong again. They ask two questions:

Fei Lung: " Are you coming back to accept our hospitality or are you going to offend us by leaving again? "

Flint: " We are not going to offend you again, we are staying the night. "

Hui Ash: " Are you ready to play ? "

Raizak: " We are so serious that it shouldn’t be called a game. " while he touches the game pieces and moves them making Fei Lung win.

Fei Lung is laughing. Hui Ash sees his opportunity: " If you are so full of confidence why don’t we play for the higher stakes. "

Fei Lung stays quiet thinking about the proposal.

Hui Ash asks Fei Lung: " It looks like tonight is going to rain again. "

Fei Lung answers smilling and agreeing: " Just until dawn. "

Hui Ash agrees with him: " Until dawn them, we meet at dawn north of the village. "

The two leave for their huts with Fei Lung who plans to enchant the Band’s weapons and Yoshirou’s fists with (temporarily) + 2 enchantment and a 2d6 specific (cold or acid) elemental effect. He gets mad when Yoshirou asks about keeping the villagers safe, he doesn’t care and ends negotiations by telling them to go out of his hut.

The Band go to the big shelter house, still holding after all the winds and rain. They use a Divination spell to try to find some guidance: " ?Ayudar al Tun Mi Lung en vencer a Shan Hou-Yan salvará la Village of Lasimar? "

Frutumal receives an answer in the form of a voice that speaks in his head: " The house is in danger of burning and to extingh the fire, water is needed, buckets will help, but not too much water, so don’t divert a river. "

Doraku returns briefly, he has discovered that the curse is real. One villager made a deal with the Efreeti. He received a wish and the fiery demon turned the wish into the curse. The wish was: " I wish to be the protector of this village and that people are safer around me. ".

Time:
Mystara Calendar
Duration: 6 days and nights of tracking, 1 day of battle, 1 night and 1 day of travelling.
Finished on: Nytdian the 26th of the month of Sviftmont of the year 1032 After the Coronation of the First Emperor of Thyatis (AC)

Synopsis:
The Band of the Wolf travel from the Village of Kuroiwa across the Mountains of Ice to try to find the Ice Caves of the Quikasa and continue their trek to find the Onedea and his Quikasa Gnolls. They know Yeng Lo Zhung is not far behind so they decide to use strategy to continue their mission.

Toupil’s Band of Rebels of the Shima Rebellion will make Yeng Lo Zhung and the dangerous Boryoku to find each other. This could prove to be a good distraction for both of them and they could continue searching for Onedea. First Raizak will use a Weather Control spell to make Yeng Lo Zhung lose their track then the Rebels will make the armies of their enemies find each other.

The strategy works fine enough for Toupil, Sangyeng and the Band of the Wolf to find Onedea’s Lair and track him to a dangerous place on the Mountians of Ice were he was travelled to offer some treasures as tribute to one of the dangerous monsters of the area. The Jade Princess was one of these treasures.

The Band of the Wolf followed and ambushed Onelea, after thoughfull preparation and a motivational speech from Frutumal.

During the battle a cart with many banners arrived to the scene. The driver, a dwarf, jumped and turned into a huge demon. More small small demons appear from the cart and ran to steal the treasures. A voice declared: " Onedea, your death doesn’t end our agreement. Those treasures are mine or I will take the soul of your men. " The Gnolls shivered in fear of the voice and acted to defend the demons that were taking the treasures attacking the Band of the Wolf with fierce blood motivated by their fear more than their loyalty to their fallen leader.

Yoshirou was able to escape away with The Jade Princess. The rest had to choose between leaving some of them behind to die in the claws of the demons or risk all of them dying. They stayed and were able to kill the demon.

Inside the cart Troyus found a prisoner. A princess dressed in very valuable clothing wrapped in thick ropes. " You have saved me, honrable warrior, please tell me your name and those brave ones who accompany you. "

" My name is Troyus Bloodstone and this are my soldiers. "

" Then, " answered the prisoner changing into an horrendous monstrous version of herself, half snake and half woman " now I know the name of he who dare oppose me, The Devil Demon Kana. "

The woman who was commanding the demons disappeared on a cloud of smoke and sulfur.

After the battle, the Band of the Wolf killed Onedea, some of his high ranking officers and 50 of his gnolls decimating his army.

The Band of the Wolf leaved the place with treasures and Onedea’s head on a bag toward the Village of Howaito Rokku.

The ghost of his brother Takashi Nakajima appear to him, now revitalized. Yoshirou told him: " I’m not looking for this responsibility, I cannot be part of the Shima Rebellion like you. I’m not into politics. " Takashi’s ghost answered: " You don’t have to be. You did something greater for your brother’s soul and that is bigger than honor, that’s love. "

Finished on: Moldain the 18th of the month of Sviftmont of the year 1032 After the Coronation of the First Emperor of Thyatis (AC)

Synopsis:
The Band of the Wolf travel from Temple Ruins of Korimizu and find a wooden wall. After checking their papers they are invited in by the gracious Lady Kitsune who tries to be a good host, sells poor quality food and clothing and shelter to the Band.

Toupil‘s Patrol was already on the Village of Kuroiwa but they aren’t what they appear to be. Flint speaks to him and finds some loopholes on what he declares to be his mission: The last month he has been following some Bandits of Ochalea under the command of the dangerous Kou Yun.

Venter Tun’s Patrol arrive to the village following the Band of the Wolf and ask for information about the Village of Lasimar and the Temple Ruins of Korimizu. He is the brother of Chaei Tun The White and son of the elder of their village, The Revered Blades. He hates his brother, who he sees as a traitor for leaving the village to go travelling with his part of the family heirdom.

The town cleric, Huy Otgon, explains to Dio Stoutspark that Shan Hou-Yan is a dangerous creature. That he fears the leader of a Demon Cults who claims to be a deity. Dio recognizes Shan as one of the two monsters on the Village of Lasimar.

Venter Tun The Black feels offended because Yoshirou Nakajima mentioned his brother Chaei Tun The White but later Troyus Bloodstone finds a way to calm him down and speak. The Band of the Wolf prepare a written report of what they found on the Village of Lasimar and Venter Tun gaves him a letter to speak to the Village of Nimshi’s elder.

Neku the Bakaneko confess that she cannot lie to the one who holds her cage and that she has been stalling her knowledge so that the Band of the Wolf don’t kill her. Raizak Derek does the question that places Neku in a bad position. Why should we keep you alive? Kitsune makes a deal with the Band of the Wolf and gives them the location of the Village of Nimshi and a letter for the village elder, a friend of her. She received in return Neku who she sentenced to death immediatly. The execution included the story of what Neku did in that village: " This Bakaneko perverted thirteen children from these village and used them to trap and eat the grown ups of their families. She make the children beleive that they were some kind of Dream Warriors and used them to decimate the village more than 20 years ago. " Neku was killed using cold spells on the metal container of the village’s smelter until she died.

What was discovered later was that Toupil was a member of the Shima Rebellion with a childhood friend of both Yoshirou Nakajima and his brother Takashi Nakajima, the young and restless Sangyeng. They took Yoshirou with them and escaped up the dangerous Mountains of Ice.

The Band of the Wolf took the road east toward the Mountains of Ice to rescue their friend Yoshirou who they believed was capture by the fake soldiers of Toupil. They are ambushed by bandits under the command of Yeng Lo Zhung who prepares a treacherous ambush using the environment. Yeng Lo Zhung, the half-fiend, wanted to find Troyus Machistes and kill him.

Sangyeng explains to Yoshirou Nakajima that his brother Takashi was also a member of the Shima Rebellion and was transporting a precious cargo to visit the villages of the provinces and move them to rebel against the Thyatian Empire. Takashi was transporting The Jade Princess and that now his soul cannot rest because he lost such a precious treasure. Sangyeng has been seen the ghost of Takashi who has guided her to find Yoshirou. She believes that Takashi wants her to help Yoshirou find the statue.

The Band of the Wolf continue their trek to find the Onedea and his Quikasa Gnolls. They know Yeng Lo Zhung is not far behind.

Synopsis:
10 days of travel from Waping Piao to the Village of Lasimar (narrated on Lets order the secod round ) end with an encounter with a creature of Ochalea’s legends the Tun Mi Lung. The storm caused by the Thypoon Dragon is pushing the ship toward the reefs and it could get destroyed. The band and the crew decide to use all the resources to escape the storm and touch land in the safest point of the shore a little away form Lasimar. Using magic to calm the crew and to direct the actions and raw strength and skill, they are able to do just that fighting the storm all night. During the storm some people saw a large sized red skinned horned humanoid that was flying around hurling fireballs to the Tun Mi Lung.

" The unload of the horses will take four hours. " – explains Captain James Flint. The village is there walking to the east for about an hour. The Crew of The Walrus continue working on the unload of the horses and fixing the ship while the Band of the Wolf walk to the Village of Lasimar.

In the Village they meet the troublemaker Pe Pi To, son of the recently deceased elder and his mother Zhan Ila who is not very happy of having aristocracts and gaijins on her village.

Merkel and Rayzak take Content Not Found: neku out of the village and try to get info from her but she refuces despite intimidation and spells. " Wake me up again at dusk to feed me. "

The band find that the older people on the village two checker’s playing engaged in a feud Hui Ash and Fei Lung have come from two different villages one from miners from the hills and the other from fishermen on the coast. They tell them to wait until tomorrow for a man who comes in a barge from up river. And recomend that they pay a few silver pieces to stay in the village bigger house.

The Walrus’ crew finish their work and deliver the horses to the Band. James Flint and his son Nathaniel Flint depart in better terms than before.

Meanwhile the people of the village don’t want the Band to stay. The old men Fei Lung and Hui Ash “suggest” their fellow villagers to be good hosts and to take advantage of the money that can be used to rebuilt the village damaged by storms. The sugestion feels more like an intimidation and the villagers disperss. Zhan Ila send signals to Raikza that he recognize as wizard’s spell casting hand gestures.

Nightfall is approaching and Merkel interrogates Neku and gives him half a ration only of her beef jerkies. Neku has to comply: " Ask the villager of Lasimar the date of the last Rakastas’ Patrol that they have seen and the location of the ‘ruins of the temple’. Then, move toward the ruins of the temple is our next step. "

The storm is near to start.

Raizak goes to see Zhan Ila and she tells him in secret: " Is all a trap, a game of theirs, get out of here before is to late or you will be cursed too. Leave! NOW! " and she hurled him outside of her house.

The rains and wind starting, Flint and Yoshirou went to different villagers to gather information about the Rakasta Patorl and the Temple Ruins. The rest of the Band were preparing the horses to leave.

Returning to meet the Band with the information, Flint and Yoshirou fall in the mud. The large fire bearing creature appears in front of them, is some kind of ochalean effreeti or fire spirit. He asks if they are trying to escape and Flint bluffs his way out of there. The fiery giant goes back to fight the thypoon dragon and the Band take the chance to escape the village before the night is over. They use magic to calm the storm and have some protection against the lightnings that are falling everywere. They also have to fight the winds. They are able to, once again, survive a night under the storm, and arrive to safety.

At dawn they band are tired but alive and the horses are safe. But then a band of Quikasa Gnolls who has been trying to attack the village for weeks attack them to steal the horses. The band fight the gnolls only to see that they are scare of Raizak’s magic and dissapear in puffs of smoke. Flint is able to capture one Chal Miao and Raizaks puts him under a spell so that he can work as a guide in these dangerous Celestial Territories wilderness. Chal Miao tells them that they were working for the Ogre Magi Ox Clan and that they enchanted them with powers. He tells them that there are bands of human bandits in the area, at least two, one commanded by a half orc monk the other by Nine-Swords a dark samurai.

Next stop is the near by Lasimar Rice Hamlet that someone told them they will find on their way to the Temple Ruins of Korimizu. The hamlet is in disorder and badly kept. An odor of vinegar is present near and inside the houses. The families of the hamlet have been killed and turned into Pennaggolan. The Band doesn’t know that and need to rest after two days and nights of fighting the magic storm of the Thypoon Dragon. The hamlet people receive them and separate them in differen huts just to attack them in their sleep. Troyus is attacked during sex with the wife of the elder of the hamlet who is also a monster. After fighting off the undead monsters the Band is able to sleep at last and wait until morning to continue their travels. They find some treasures on the hamlet that are from earlier victims.

Patriarch Yakius Shanginus spoke to Frutumal " You have been played by the General. He claims that you organized the religious elements that insulted the people of Waping Piao. He will use you as a scapegoat if word of his attack reaches the capital and his reputation is in jeopardy. The General has another card up his sleeve as he has received word from the capital that Patriarch Hythus Phorous of Kingdom of Karameikos accused Frutumal of insubordination and gave him a bad reputation.

" I won’t be able to travel today with you, all of you, mounts and creatures will expend my Magical Corridor magic. I will meet you tomorrow at the city of Waping Piao. As there are no corridors directly into that city, my corridor will open a few miles from the city. You will use this map to find the city and I will meet you there tomorrow. The Celestial Territories are the most dangerous wilderness of all Ochalea and Waping Piao is their mayor and only stone-walled city of the province. Just a travelling warning. " He does his gestures and recites his spell openning the magical corridor like a big tunnel into the unknown.

They were convinced by Troyus Machistes to honor Oedilus Cabanis’s dead and deliver the Letter from Caesonia Scipio Machiste to Troyus Machiste. Behind they leave the tropical jungles of Ierendi Island, and the caravan exit the corridor in a different landscape of hills and grasslands. As the corridor closes behind them they see a big fire on the grassland, a few holes on the ground and hear strange sounds from behind the hills. Their two prisoners Xaphira and Benedetto Difusallo closely watched.

Gargantuan creatures sprout from holes on the ground and a larger one broke the ground in a big expllosion. Gargantuan Monstrous Centipedes and a Purple Worm were attacking the caravan.

The Last Trap of Ursula

The Last Trap of Ursula
XP = 3003
Time:
Mystara Calendar
Duration: 1 day and 1 night
Finished on: Soladain the 7th of the month of Felmont of the year 1032 After the Coronation of the First Emperor of Thyatis (AC)

Synopsis:
The riddle was a way for Ursula to activate the Obelisk and referred to the Obelisk as the needle and the grandma as the ship.

When the crew of The Old Lady and the Band of the Wolf go up to the ship’s deck and look out they find that Ursula’s trap using the Nagpas’s Obelisk was to transport them inside a volcano were she was waiting with her Merrow Ogres and another Obelisk. The Band of the Wolf spring into action and convinced Admiral Julius Corcha that they should lead because of their past experience with Ursula and the crew of her ship The Sea Hag. Flint words were seen as wise by both King Fryeden and Queen Maeyi who had seen the Band at work. Commander Burnscar wanted to fly and attack Ursula one-to-one but was convinced by the others that it was better to avoid emotions to control their decisions.

Everyone knew that if the Queen of the Aleea Merfolks and the King of the Takala Tritons were to die here, a war between those two nations against Ierendi will be inevitable.

The Abysmal heat, the air temperature, smoke, fire, lava were affecting everyone but were more damaging to the King and Queen. And Raizak joined Burnscar into casting spells that could help them including protection against elements and mass haste.

Yoshirou, Axetor and Carceran protected Queen Maeyi while she was studying the Obelisk and trying to activate it to escape. Carceran noticed that an inscription was a spell blocking teleport spells. The easy way out was blocked. A riddle was present and was the key to activating the Obelisk again:
_ Drop times three must fall on me,
To open the book of my wisdom:
The life-giver the light-bearer,
and the sorrow-marker will follow.
To open the map to the maelstrom._

Flint and the Admiral organized the rest of the crew and adventurers to defend the ship against the Merrow Ogres, who started using very long chains with hooks to pull the sailors and soldiers from the ship and into the lava.

Raizak and Burnscar were ready to attack the ogres and they did just to activate another of Ursula traps: a group of air elementals who she summoned using a magic item stolen from Tana Nightwing. Other fire-based monsters attacked the ship. The ogres started to board. Burnscar and her fire elementals were engaged in battle with the air elementals who were pulling her into the lava.

Ursula accused the four leaders, Corcha, Burnscar, Fryeden and Maeyi to be the members of the secret organization The Secret Circle that she was trying to find. Burnscar replied with the truth, that they weren’t members of the Circle, but the Band noticed that she did knew that the Circle existed and was not a simple urban legend of Ierendi.

Troyus tried to fight Ursula one-on-one and decapitated her ogre commander with one blow of his sword. But the pirate revealed to be a Sea Hag in disguise and used her power of Evil Eye to leave him in a catatonic state on the floor crying.

Maeyi, Yoshirou and Axetor used a drop of blood, tears and candle wax to activate the Obelisk and a multi-level dial was exposed with another riddle:

Three again are the helms to this ship:
The older brother is the navigator,
The middle brother is the chief mate,
And the younger brother is the timekeeper.

Carceran make himself invisible and tried to get near Ursula and the second Obelisk as it could had clues on how to solve the first Obelisk.

Dio moved close enough to remove the evil fear from Troyus. The ogres were been dispatched but the bigger air elemental has transformed into a whirlwind that was making people take damage from the rocks and debris and even falling into the lava. The wizards teamed up to attack and counterattack Ursula. More attacks from the siege weapons and archers were able to kill Ursula, stopping the madness and the air elemental disappeared.

The dials were moved and the broken ship was transported back into its last position on the sea. King Fryeden sounded his magical horn of the tritons and magically a group of his men appeared to help. The broken ship was pulled near the coast by a collection of sea animals, merfolks and tritons.

Admiral Devrim AKuntesh arrived with four members of the Cabal of the Volcano and took the two Nagpa obelisks with them. He was “barely impressed” by the Band of the Wolf exploits and offered to pay Ursula’s reward with a bonus for their “good work”. He left taking Burnscar with him.

Back on Ierendi City the Band of the Wolf was getting ready to see Troyus and Fling duel when a messenger comes for Troyus. “A man who claims he knows you is dying at the port. He claims he has a letter for you. He was found at sea. “ Troyus goes to the house were the old man is.

Oedilus Cabanis, blind with fever and wounds of his travels, on his last dying breath, gives Troyus Bloodstone a letter that was meant for Troyus Machistes. Letter from Caesonia Scipio Machiste to Troyus Machiste.
