Rise of the Runelords (Anniversary Edition)

Game Session #3: The Catacombs of Wrath

Current Year: 4707 AR
Date: 29 Rova

Having cleared the Glassworks, freed Ameiko and apprehended Tsuto, the party returned briefly to Sandpoint before making its journey blow the Glassworks into the Catacombs of Wrath. They took Tsuto to Sheriff Hemlock, and told him of Tstuo’s involvement in the raid on Sandpoint and in the kidnapping and beating of Ameiko.

Sheriff Hemlock indicated that, due to the nature of his crimes and the small and limit courts in Sandpoint, Tsuto would have to be taken to Magnimar, where he would be held over until a trial could occur. Reluctantly, the party agreed and handed him over.

After resting for a few hours, the party made their back to tunnels below the Glassworks.

As they entered the newly-discovered area, a strange monstrosity of a creature attacked them. Vaguely humanoid in shape, the creature seemed to be something of a distortion of a human, with long, gangly arms, and two small arms with tiny hands which surrounded its mouth. The creature was quickly dispatched, but it’s unnatural, otherworldly nature unnerved the heroes.

Moving through the catacombs, the heroes found a statue that they would later identify as one of Alaznist, the Runelord of Wrath. The statue was adorned with this symbol:

They secured the removable glaive, and proceeded on, encountering a variety of monsters – sinspawn, a mutant goblin with three arms, and lastly, an extremely powerful quasit (which the party believes is the one referred to in Tsuto’s journal.) After a protracted battle. the quasit fled and the party returned to Sandpoint, where they began planning their expedition to Thistletop.
