Tracy's HackMoor Campaign 2014/08/26
Synopsis: I order to finally free the Duchy of Ten from the Afridhi barbarians (they completed module DA4 a year or so ago, but it only gave the Barbarians 20% demorization), the party's decided to undergo a secret mission to finally overthrow the Afridhi Barbarians by ringing the "Freedom Bells" of the mythical land called "'MURICA" by going through another land that has never been defeated, called "VYAT NAAAAM".


First off, they wanted to sail to the Duchy of the Peaks, go overland to StarPort where the ruling mage class or the Duchess may hold clues to the whereabouts of the "Freedom Bells" and of course the invincible country called Vyat Naaaam.

Weasel and Elefus reappeared after a long absence, (mainly because we moved to Tuesdays). NPC Tubbs was retained and ENS Johnson was given a permanent desk job. The adventurers that ran with the party below the Zoo were put on the retired list. The four Mini-Giants were retained as Kmaregh's personal bodyguard. Since Elefus was going, Gerry Castagere (who's in love with Elefus) also managed to go due to her prior sailing expertise and the fact she is also a Tenian.

The party spent the first hour arguing about what to do next. Or perhaps more so, how to go about it.

First plan, they were going to use Honda's ship "Far East Development", but the Honda changed her mind.

Second plan, William "The Fetch" was going to issue them a ship from Blackmoor's Navy, but Honda changed her mind again and decided to use her ship.

Third plan's the charm. Somewhere in all this, there was debate as to whether Fundisha should come aboard, since she was 7 months pregnant (with twins) or stay behind. I think it was the fact they were using Honda's ship they would continue with the Party, but stay onboard for the duration.

The debate took about half an hour.

Seven days there were out at sea, with no encounters, and smooth sailing. But on the 7th day...

A red dragon was spotted heading towards the ship at some considerable distance. Meanwhile below decks...

A pair of Efreeti appeared, attacked Gerry Castagere and Fundisha. Kmaregh was also below decks and responded with an ineffective spell and his four Mini-Giants. Kmaregh also yelled for help while Fundisha and/or Gerry screamed for help. While Elefus ignored the pleas, Junkbot came rushing down. Gerry and Fundisha were knocked out cold and Junkbot sustained enough damage to fail his Threshhold of Pain check. Whereupon immediately all three were taken and transported to the Efreeti's home plane.

These were the same Efreeti that were defeated on this plane a year ago and one day by the same party members. The Efreeti came to exact revenge. If they are avenging the same battle, I would expect Elefus & Weasel to also be targeted.

Two days later they came across a ship headed the other direction. Weasel, having handy the ability to fly, approached, was hailed by crew and invited aboard. Explaining they were pilgrims and refugees seeking to get away from the barbarians. They offered Weasel anything he could possibly want with a full description. 1) Chainmail +3, One Flail +1 and a Potion of Bad Bargain Sense. Weasel took the items and both ships went on their way.

They were Samaritans.

Sailing past Robinsport under a false flag, they paid a 300 toll to the Barbarians and continued up the River Thunder and the chain was lowered. True to its name, there happened to be hurricane force winds and the ship trim sail and beach, otherwise they were unharmed. Extricating themselves from the newly formed sandbar.

Making landfall a few days later at "The Dock" (the only name for the place the Duchy could think of), they availed themselves of a few choice entertainments and used their bragging rights for some Honor Points.

They continued into StarPort, the city of debauchery and licentiousness. Where it is a common saying "What happens in Starport, stays in Starport". Weasel and Kmaregh, managed to have an "audience" with the Duchess at one of her many nightly parties. Where it was learned that the archive of everything the Duchy knew about the mythical land of "MURICA" was held in a Tower about 100 miles away by a contract Wizard, who has been conjuring up a force of demons to counter both the Barbarians and the Egg of Coot. Although they haven't heard from him lately...

I think the party is now headed towards this tower...
