  • Jarvyk Entry 1

    Jarvyk Tedryk... This day has been wrought with sadness and loss, but also with hope. Sometime before we rose to continue our quest for the dark dragon’s horde we were set upon by gnashing mandibles and ferocious hooks, rising from darkness with …

  • Jarvyk Entry 2

    With the devil dead, and our wounds great, we sought a secure resting place. Fortunately, our new companions were familiar with such a location. The fish people had a well-fortified armory within their temple, which served as secure shelter for this …

  • Jarvyk Entry 3

    Bransen. What can I say about this odd little human? He exudes holy magic from his very being, and yet prays to no god. His mind seems clouded by a lifetime of hidden truths and veiled deceptions, with what purpose? He associates these divine powers …

  • Jarvyk Entry 4

    The search for Dhorlot continues… We have beaten back the fish men, overcome their cunning traps, escaped the clutches of undead horrors, and scaled impossible expanses to get where we are today. And where is that? Hiding in the desolate halls of the …

  • Jarvyk Entry 5

    It is said that hate spreads like wildfire, and in some cases this is painfully true. Not long after the riots near the city hall in Cauldron a fire was set at Minuta’s Board; a seedy establishment that provided housing for some of the extra half-Orc …

  • Jarvyk Entry 6

    After a long wet journey we finally approached the area of the headless demon statue. Without warning, and before we could reach the banks of the river, we were set upon by a band of dog men. These creatures, gnolls I believe, rained their treacherous …

  • Jarvyk Entry 7

    While searching though the ‘round cave’ tunnel system we found the place to be protected by a number of giants. I cannot speak to their intelligence, however some aspects of this tunnel system seem to be far beyond their capabilities. Giants are not …

  • Jarvyk Entry 8

    With the false angels felled, and their belongings acquired, we endeavored to discern the nature of that liquid which they offered. Surely it must be some foul concoction of torment or subversion. The telling would have to wait for more accommodating …

  • Jarvyk Entry 9

    [sleep] It was the morning of Planting 8th and we had slept heavily on that the night of Alek’s death. His salvation was our salvation, and so too his passing our undoing. If anything was going to lead us back onto the path of righteousness it would …

  • Jarvyk Entry 10

    We are rescued from the enormous beasts, beaten and weary, but alive. It is such a basic thing to be thankful for, and such a fragile commodity in this land. Following our adventure it was the decision of the party to find refuge and regroup. Kaurophon …

  • Jarvyk Entry 11

    (no sleep) Having survived the lightning attacks, we pressed forward, harried but healed. The adjoining chamber was covered in a maze of smoldering rubble, with a large statue at the opposite end. As we approached this visage of Orcus, Kort fell into …

  • Jarvyk Entry 12

    This accursed land writhes and aches beneath us. Although I dare not explore the idea, it has become increasingly obvious that we tread upon a living entity. It is as if the very essence of evil surrounds and engulfs our every moment, breath, and …

  • Jarvyk Entry 13

    Following completion of the second trial we found ourselves pointed towards the great skull. Somehow, I suspected these trials would lead us through that vile monument. It would take many days of travel to reach this third, and final, trial; time we …

  • Jarvyk Entry 14

    With the clay golem dispatched, and the throne room searched, we continued towards the mount of the great skull. At the top of a long winding staircase we found a large chamber. In it was a dark flame, surrounded by eerie yellow light. The flame …

  • Jarvyk Entry 15

    The hells be damned, we'll be rid of Occipitus soon. The trials are concluded and the Silver Phoenix rises forth. Bransen says he can get us back to the prime with a nights rest, and I'm inclined to believe him. This place has been... enlightening. …

  • Jarvyk Entry 16

    In the days of the anointing a myriad of mundane events took place. We found new companions, through Bransen mostly, who had work for us in the direction of Cauldron. We agreed to help them with their situation, for a fee, in exchange for their …

    6 Flocktime, 592 CY (after the battle with Lerrius) In the aftermath of the battle with Lerrius, which ended with what sounded like the excruciating death of our gnomish foe, questions began to fill my mind. The bloody grime of death has a way of …

  • Jarvyk Entry 18

    6 Flocktime, 592 CY (continued) With the formerly ensorcelled temple guards in tow we arrived at Hetagg’s village. The situation was explained and, reluctantly, accepted. We returned the odd, but holy, statue of the serpent creature and retired to …

  • Jarvyk Entry 19

    14 Flocktime, 592 CY Rumors and shadowed deeds run rampant in Cauldron, threatening to unravel the tenuous peace only recently established. It would appear that those who seek a harmonious, if not silent, solution to the deep seeded unrest are at …

  • Jarvyk Entry 20

    15 Flocktime, 592 CY We were all a bit wary on the day following the assault of the Silver Phoenix house. Our home had been violated and our lives just barely saved. The assassins that pressed their treachery against us were still at large and the …

  • Jarvyk Entry 21

    17 Flocktime, 592 CY With Calmus Vel and his minions dispatched we were able to take a better look around the temple. It was as extravagant as one would expect considering the rumors circulating through Cauldron. Suffice it to say that the themes of …

  • Jarvyk Entry 22

    18 Flocktime, 592 CY It stood in front of me, that damnable cage of Carceri. There, in our home, taunting me with its evil memories. I wanted the thing gone, destroyed, plunged into the deepest cavern and left for an age. But mostly, I wanted to put …

  • Jarvyk Entry 23

    2 Wealsun, 592 CY The road brought Commander Kerouss to us today. It was a welcome sight, such an old friend, and so far from the city. When his face became clear in those dark tunnels I must admit some level of relief came over me. There he was, …

  • Jarvyk Entry 24

    13 Wealsun, 592 CY We continued our exploration of the ice caves today, finding intrigue in place of danger. The ice lattice structures, previously thought to be some sort of trap, were found to be seeing devices. Ashton caught some kind of clue …

  • Jarvyk Entry 25

    15 Wealsun, 592 CY Much of this day was spent in meditation, an activity sorely lacking in much of our encounters. Cyrus, eager to realign himself, was primarily responsible for this decision. Ashton, and to a lesser extent myself, took advantage of …

  • Jarvyk Entry 26

    16 Wealsun, 592 CY With Bransen's help, or rather by his deed alone, we escaped the depths of that historic prison; proceeding on to destinations of choice. Ryla, although skilled and formidable, did not have the taste for our particular style of work …

  • Jarvyk Entry 27

    _*22 Wealsun, 592 CY*_ The orange energy field weighs heavy on my mind, contradicting what little still feels right in this razed mental fort. Evenings drag on into the dark of night, but rest eludes me. In the days, a great shadow stands formless, …

  • Jarvyk Entry 28

    Something about this city rots from within. In fact, a great many things likely lay in putrid piles amongst the hallowed halls of leadership. Lord Vhalantru, from what we can tell, is himself an entire pile of decay. Still, we thought it best, in our …

  • Jarvyk Entry 29

    Into the pit of Vhalantru we delved today, 23 Wealsun 593, intent on ending the reign of the twisted authoritarian. His power, unchecked for far too long, seemed to be culminating in a ritual of some kind within the very foreseeable future. All we had …

  • Jarvyk Entry 30

    So much has happened in recent days, so much to make me question our shared spirit. Can the will of the righteous supplant the actions of evil and their intense hunger for power? Is it our destiny to overcome or merely our role to struggle in eternal …

  • Jarvyk Entry 32

    The continuation of Cauldron’s convulsion… 27 Wealsun, 592 In the latter part of that day the strands of chaos seemed to multiply like a slime creature under the assault of ill informed adventurers. Each destroyed home, each toppled business, seemed …

  • Jarvyk Entry 33

    On the last day of Wealsun, leagues into our journey and mere minutes before its final hour, fates brought what many adventurers would consider both their finest triumph and their greatest disappointment. We woke early, tense and alert. What had been …

  • Jarvyk Entry 34

    *1 Richfest, 592 CY* We prepared for a battle unseen but expected, knowing not what dangers it would hold and having only the most basic idea of when it might occur. It was not the plan I would have wished. It was not the day I would have wanted. It …

  • Jarvyk Entry 35

    It was later in the day on the first of Richfest, 592 CY, and we were still exploring the halls of the Fiery Sanctum. Strange and wondrous things would lay ahead and our preparation would prove as good as ever. Thinking back on it, I’m not sure what was …

  • Jarvyk Entry 36

    Further delvings into the pits of lava… Time seemed to be running out, fading more quickly than should be reasonable, as we pressed on through the hell hold. With each step a question, ‘are we too late’? With each new passage, ‘will this encounter …

  • Jarvyk Entry 37

    We pressed on, through trapped halls and warded passages, in search of the one who might be able to help us put an end to the hellish gateway above Cauldron; which assumed was still in operation. With our treacherous guide leading the way we were able to …

  • Jarvyk Entry 38

    It occurred on the first day of Richfest and through the years its ripple would surely shape the lives of every mortal creature within a hundred miles or more. It brought low the lowest of the Phoenix and led directly to the justifiable murder of …

  • Jarvyk Entry 39

    Shatterhorn was every bit the ruins we expected. Stone was strewn about the place and the light of a thousand torches could not have eliminated every shadow. The place was rife with the stench of evil. I think even Karamus would have found little …

  • Jarvyk Entry 40

    It wasn’t long we were in Shatterhorn before our softer brethren felt their collective faculties too strained to continue. A recent battle with several deadly medusa, stronger and more adept than one might expect, took from them what little essence …

  • Jarvyk Entry 41

    I hate the blasted Shatterhorn, and I’ll be pleased when we’re done with the place. We cannot go five minutes within its walls without being accosted by some Cagewright asshole, or a blasted trap, or both. Just today the stone itself came to and tried …

  • Jarvyk Entry 42

    Shatterhorn has proven tricky and treacherous. We hunted through it's depths for the blood of Cagewrights and found more than enough of our own in the mix. The path continues, perhaps more dangerous than before, towards the head of the beast and yet we …

  • Jarvyk Entry 43

    The casting of spells never ceases to amaze me. Intricate gestures and riddled incantations mask rites of sacrifice and deals with unworldly powers. I think most who engage in such activities know, and care, little of those sources. These thoughts and …

  • Jarvyk Entry 44

    From Sasserine to Sigil, it’s proving to be one of THOSE trips. Have to get on to Carceri over these lot o’ Cagewrights and ain’t got no reliable way to do as such without runnin’ by an undesirable old friend. Trips like these take a toll, seeing the …

  • Jarvyk Entry 45

    With a night of revelry behind us and hell in front, the morning of Goodmonth 1 seemed sarcastic at best. We’d just had the best time we were going to have for a goodly while and the bulk of Goodmonth was likely to be spent in a very evil place. Still, …

  • Jarvyk Entry 46

    A prison like no other, Skullrot more than lives up to its name and reputation. The exterior, imposing as it is, does not compare to the sinister nature of what lies within. Evil emanates from every corner, drenching us in a haze of ill will. Whatever …

  • Jarvyk Entry 47

    [Thoughts] The walls of Skullrot seem now less dangerous than its many doors. Behind every portal lies another creature that would give most mortals pause to pray, and here we are swinging open one after another in search of the worst that is to be …
