Return of the Hydra: prologue

Matundes Visions VI

We decided to split up, because we still had a lot of miles to cover, and very little time to do it… I went with my lovely Kallithea and Ragnar the tortoise to the necropolis…

For once we had no problems following the track, maybe the nearness of the river helped, or maybe not being led by Charis and using our own abilities and skills did the trick…

Anyways, we had no big difficulty getting to the necropolis, where we overheard a gathering of warlocks of all 4 tribes. Apparently the tribal wars that are going on on the peninsula are being orchestrated, and shifts in alliances directed by the resident Lich…
All mighty warriors, warlocks and other niggers were being turned undead and an army of undead is in the making in the necropolis underground. We also learned some more about the persons to be sacrificed by the tribe of the twins and that the necropolis-underground would be next to empty on the night of the big celebration.

Because we where only three, and the warlocks and Lich where accompanied by a lot of animal companions (especially the bee-swarms scared my little darling), we decided not to attack there and then, but to follow the tracks of one of the warlocks retinue we found…
We arrived at the camp of the big ones, where we met some old friends we helped and saved in the last battle, and convinced them to attack the camp of the twins. They were naturally easily overrun, and we squeezed some information about the twin tribe’s major village and the whereabouts of the captives out of them…
After this little hors d’oeuvre we set up a trap for the warlock and his bodyguard, and they also were dispatched with no great difficulty… and gave me the opportunity to highten my strength with the chieftain’s belt…

Next we went to inspect the bridge we had to cross to get to the assembly-point with the other half of our party…
At first sight the bridge was only guarded by one fat motherfucker (did you notice that fat people always tend to have a malign and unfriendly complexion?) who challenged one of us for a duel. Ragnar went to teach him a lesson, but trickery was in play, because 2 invisible priests were healing the fat bastard as he fought and bled… At this point Kallithea and I intervened and after some difficulty (lots of rain to be expected in the following days), overcame the fat bitch, his priests, some turtle-warriors, bards and archers…
A large road departed from the bridge and in the distance we could make out a white hydra-head…

Because we were well on time, we decided to go ahead towards our companions…
We had a little difficulty dealing with a swamp, but at last were able to get out, and slay some huge spiders on the way which caused me to become even more powerful, and the only level 13 character in the party (eat that you fat motherfucker, if I am not mistaken you are about 10.000 exp behind)…

Now lets get to the rendez-vous and the treasure at last…
