Hello and welcome to a very special episode of Drunks and Dragons. You see, this week we learn a bit more about one of our members while making a new friend along the way. Yes, after dealing with that nasty Troll, the gang is now ready to venture to the Crypt of Sinu the Red. Please enjoy!
Cast and Player Characters
After defeating the evil troll and returning the boy to his village the gang sees a strange sight in the sky. A wooden house attached to balloons and a giant flying serpent land near them and a strange figure comes out. His introduces himself as Clinker, a gnome court jester to "King Snuffleupagus" and a friend of Fennekin. They initially distrust him but he tells them he will bring them to The Crypt of Sinu the Red. They decide to go with him and spend a few days traveling in his flying house. Clinker lands them in a small village that is completely abandoned but has a massive graveyard, far bigger than the town itself. They find a large mausoleum and go inside to find steps that go down, down down. And at the bottom of the steps there is the skeleton of a dwarf.
Aludra looks at the badass shield the skeleton is holding and picks it up. Her memories come back to her and she realizes that the skeleton is her brother. Her full name is Aludra Wyrmsbane and her family is a bunch of dwarven miners, though she always wanted to be an adventurer. Aludra and her brother were on a mining expedition when they broke into the crypt and were chased by a fearsome beast. Everybody in the party died save for Aludra and she realized this would be a great time to run off on her own.
There is then a discussion about how long it takes for a body to decompose.
The party feel a large amount of magic, or "science" eminating from a large door, which they duly enter.
They see a pile of rocks with a dwarven helm atop. Aludra sees a badass helmet, which has inscribed upon it a message:
"IF ORB OF POWER IS WHAT YOU SEEK,
ON DWARVEN HEAD THIS HELM MUST REST.
THE NAME OF SCARLET THEN YOU SPEAK,
THE PRIZE IS YOURS ONCE PAST THE TEST"
Aludra is encouraged to pick up the helmet, put it on and shout "Sinu the Red". She does this, floats up in the air and promptly pulls a Tum Darkblade, i.e. she DIES.
