Finally getting back to the recaps - hopefully I haven't forgotten too many of the details.   We were down a couple of players from last session but Von the Unyieldings player showed up.  Those not present either had gone ahead or stayed behind to guard the gate.  I don't know if any of my players read these (I've sent them links) but if they do I've put a few of my comments in spoiler tags.

Session 5:  Footsteps on Torth
wind – Zambrosia, Keltic Cleric (Level 2)
gabe – Venicius, Keltic Grocer (Assassin) (Level 2)
mike – Ole Oleson, Viking Fighter (Level 2)
terry – Sparky, Keltic Pyromancer (Level 2)
rob - Von the Unyielding, Kimmerian Cataphract (Level 2)

The party started by taking stock of the new information they had gathered.  The letter and map of Torth and the entreaty for revenge by the long dead wizard.   Looking at the blank parchment through the crystal recovered from the ancient ghoul Zambrosia could see writing and found that they were actually two letters.  One letter imploring the finder to deliver the other letter (written in a strange script) to unknown personages with directions to their location.  These directions were to walk three days from the castle with ones back to the sea and at that point they would discover a warm stream and follow it to its head.  At the head the bearer would then chant the following phrase thrice  "oonamai amaioon" and rewards and revenge would naturally follow. 

This location was not beyond the gate.  I was sure the directions were clear (I used the sea and the castle the party were in as landmarks) but I was wrong and they immediately conflated it with the land beyond the gate.  No matter how many hints I dropped!

Deciding fortune and possibly a reward would be found beyond the gate the party eagerly set forth.  Strangely TPK, who had stepped through previously, was gone.  They discovered the gate on the other side was a much larger structure.  The land beyond the

Been enjoying the writeup!  Did they find out if they picked a safe cave (are there safe caves in Hyperborea)?

Solution: two copies!

Always my fallback! Average is 3. Signed sealed, Sealed, and Reader. Looks like I'm getting away with 2 this time.

Nice, haha!

We shipped a batch of orders that did not include the referee's screen. After the screen arrived, we went straight into shrink-wrapping those. Most of that work is now complete, so I expect to go back into shipping on Thursday. Thank you! 

Can you confirm (or disconfirm) the rumor that one of your body mods was having a shrink-wrap gland implanted?
