Last Time in the Drunkeros RP
With Baal-Ox, Olivia LeBoome, Crocuta, Gwendolyn Maria Shaddow, Arden Umbershade, Auda Amsel, and Drascoline Emilisk
...Ox, Olivia, and Croc were in the middle of a fight between the fishing village of Easterwatch and a massive gnoll pack terrorizing the countryside. Ox and Olivia were captured by the gnolls, but each was captured by a different gnoll faction. The gnoll Shaman Rotgut held Olivia and cursed her if she didn't kill the gnoll King Razorgore.
Ox and Olivia started a fight between shaman Rotgut and King Razorgore, where Olivia lost an arm and Ox lost at least one eye. The timely arrival of Croc the monk saved the pair and helped them escape. They made it back to Easterwatch by morning.
In Easterwatch the trio patched themselves up as best they could. This was somewhat better for Olivia than for Ox. They spoke to the town authorities and decided to go finish the gnoll threat for good. They rounded up a posse of townsfolk and set off back towards the gnoll camp...
Meanwhile Gwen the Darkblade was making a hasty escape from a botched job in Easterwatch. She bolted out of town just one step ahead of the authorities, fleeing into the countryside in hope that the three heroes who she had seen defending the town could defend her too.
When Gwen had nearly caught up to the party she was ambushed by a gnoll patrol. The gnolls took her down quickly with a poisoned arrow. Luckily the party heard the fracas, found the unfortunate Gwen, and dispatched the gnoll patrol. Croc harvested the soul of the last gnoll and used it to revive Gwen and temporarily stave off the effects of her poison. Despite some initial uncertainty, she was quickly accepted into the group.
The party decided to keep moving through the woods. By noon Croc had led them to within a short distance of the main gnoll camp, where they decided to investigate a cave strewn with mutilated gnoll corpses. At the cave they ran across Arden, a former pirate who happened to be wandering the woods in search of adventure.
After tense introductions the group began to investigate the cave of dead gnolls, suspecting it might be related to Rotgut the gnoll Shaman. A sudden necromancer appeared in the cave, prompting Ox and the posse of townsfolk to recklessly charge in. They cut the apparent necromancer down, but when they did the mutilated gnolls strewn about the cave began to reanimate as zombies.
It seemed that Rotgut the gnoll Shaman had lured the party in to the cave with his trademarked gore and violence. He caused the reanimated zombie squad to attack the party from behind. At the same time his small gnoll pack burst out of the woods and attacked the party from the front. The group began to fight the gnollish hoarde when Olivia managed to convince shaman Rotgut to stop and join forces against their common enemy: the gnoll King Razorgore. Ox and the townsfolk moved around the zombies and rejoined the party. Just as the party and Rotgut came to an agreement, a nearby huntsman named Aud spied the apparent standoff.
Aud expertly loosed an arrow at gnoll shaman Rotgut. However the arrow was deflected in its flight by one of Rotgut's mercenaries, the dragonborn Drasc. Rotgut was enraged by the attack, and ordered his warriors to kill the party. As the battle was re-joined, Ox shouted an offer of a large sum of gold for whoever killed Rotgut.
This offer of gold made Drasc decide to switch sides, and the dragonborn turned on his former gnollish employer. Drasc, Arden, Croc and Ox charged shaman Rotgut to try to cut off the pack's head. Meanwhile Olivia, Gwen, and the townsfolk held back from the gnolls behind them. In the fight, most of the townsfolk were killed. Aud began to pepper the gnolls with arrows from the treeline, while he sent his hunting dog Fang in to tear down the gnolls at close range.
Ox entered a reckless rage and tried to kill Rotgut, but the stress off the battle overwhelmed his infected and weak body and he fell unconscious. At that moment one of the slave-soldiers who the gnolls were forcing to fight switched sides, and partially impaled Rotgut. With Rotgut shrieking in pain, Croc seized the shaman and harvested his soul, and through Rotgut he harvested the soul of every zombie that Rotgut's necromancy was controlling.
The gnolls fled and the group stood in awe of Croc's feat. Aud retreated into the woods in order to evaluate the group before he decided whether or not he could trust them. Soon, only one gnoll remained. The gnoll was Rotgut's daughter, who said that by gnollish custom she must now marry Croc.
And now the group has paused to consider this, to lick its wounds, and to plan its attack on Razorgore.Want to learn more about the Drunkeros RP!
