Tondora

What Came Before

Undead had been walking.

Following a group of them, with the help of Zander, we found that they were all being drawn towards an abandoned mental asylum. On breaking in, a gruesome sight awaited… Zombies, skeltons, resurrected ogres, all dancing to a macabre band, with intenstines decorating the walls…

That was when Nigel Blackheart introduced himself, sending his evil hordes to try and feed on our brains. We took them all down, and he buggered off quick smart.

We decided that we should go to the king of this foreign land, King Bonny, and let him know what was going on. At the entrance to the capital city, we were arrested! Since when did Fargun require us Tondorans to carry papers?

As we were being escorted to wherever they were taking us, our captors were ambused! Strangely, scarily, all the ambushers were using arcane magic! That has been forbidden for hundreds of years!

It turns out the Arcanist were the ambushers, a secret sect led by the old Warforged Gethsemane. They fight for the restoration of arcane magic, and knew that one of our party was secretly an arcane magic user.

Gethsemane sent us to retrieve an artifact from the tower of the Knights of Furyondy temple. He claimed it was had no significance by itself, and the Knights did not know of its power. We got it, in the end, but it wasn’t easy. A frantic rush through the city led us to an Arcanist safehouse. But Nigel Blackheart was waiting for us! He nicked the mirror, and we were captured by the city guard.

The city guard piled us into wagons, with a whole bunch of other Tondorans. We were going to be shipped off to Cantuck, a POW camp! Couldn’t let that happen… So, we caused a distraction on the way, killed the guards, and ran off with all the refugees.

That led us to a forest, with some creepy [[:old tree man]]. He said that he couldn’t have all those people travelling through his forest. He gave us a seed, and sent the others to the outskirts of the forest. Then he made us jump into this weird tree-portal thing, which took us to the edge of the forest.

Turns out a whole bunch of Warforged were hacking down the forest. So we burnt the lumberyard and the village to a crisp! Then we struggled off into the wilderness, trying to get back home to Tondora.

It turns out that the Fargun army had blocked the only pass through to Tondora, so we followed a rumour and went southwards along the mountains, trying to find a way through. Paths led us into the mountains, and after negotiating several traps, we entered some tunnels. Buying favours from hole-dwelling lizard people, we were shown a way through. But we were foiled! We got all excited when we found a massive room full of treasure, but we noticed something on the wall… The mirror we had stolen from the Knights of Furyondy, which was then stolen from us by Nigel Blackheart!

He was there, and fought us… He used massive undead skeleton of a dragon to try and kill us, and we barely escaped alive! We shattered the mirror, hopefully killing the life-force of Nigel so he will never bother us again!

We broke through to the other side of the mountains. Finally, we are home! We planted the seed the old forest dude had given us, and all the Tondorans we rescued came out.

Success! But what now?
