DCC #84.3: Mister Nibbles

Camping in the jungle, the group discovers the moon-milk of the tiger mushroom has restorative and invigorating properties.

That night, their camp is attacked by a band of quill-covered dogs (strekleons). Aiden hypnotizes two of the strekleons and presses them into his service. The captured kith is supposedly killed, but they recover the body to find he survived. He gives his name (Elkar) and pledges allegiance to Aiden, perhaps thinking him some sort of godling or master.

June attempts to learn Elkar’s language, which is slow going.

The group heads south toward the broken hills the next day. Along the way, they run into a path of kith scouts, who have an unintelligible conversation with Elkar and then depart to the east. The group continues south.

Largo lays out all his things to admire them during the night’s camp.

The next day, they find themselves caught in a flash flood, which nearly sweeps Eudicot away. Later, they discover the corpse of a death orm, which turns out to be a trap laid by cunning strekleons, who attack the party en masse. They survive, but take some wounds. Aiden orders the hypnotized strekleons to kill each other afterward. The party grows concerned.

They travel on, discovering an abandoned camp whose inhabitants are unknown and long gone. While there, they spot a large band of fifty kith approaching from the east, perhaps tracking them. They move on hastily.

Elkar leads them to the base of the mountains, where they narrowly avoid a trap but also find a hidden cache of greenstones. Finally, Elkar points up to a mysterious purple pyramid, where the party hopes to find more greenstones and perhaps a way off the planet.

DCC #84.2: Run Through the Mushroom Jungle

Inside the ziggurat, the party discovers the body of an ancient sorcerer-king and the remains of an ancient greenstone. Eudicot deduces they must find a replacement for the stone if they are ever to return home. They decide to remain in the ziggurat for the night and head out to explore the next morning.

The next day, they head east toward the mushroom jungle. As they cross the wastes, they encounter a massive death orm, which they slay. In its stomach, Cabot discovers a mysterious skullcap, the purpose of which is unknown. Both rayrifles are expended defeating the orm. Aiden (or the runeblade) thirsts for powerful enemies to slay, including the orm.

The party reaches the mushroom jungle, and Aiden finds some to be edible and to match the ones found back on Aereth. Eudicot does some reconaissance and discovers a war party of kith headed their way. They lay an ambush and manage to dispatch or drive off most of them, save for one, which they capture. They interrogate the kith, with limited results.

They decide to remain in the mushroom jungle for the night, discovering the weirdling sun saps their strength every day they remain on the planet.

They stop in to the Silent Maid to hear rumors from Finris the Blind, where Gore inpresses the locals.

Hugh takes an assignment from Serapha Rull at the Thieves Guild and gains a choice cloak from the demesne of Jhan Grayblade.

Aiden asks around in the Souk Bazaar for a magical axe or other weapon, but has no luck (yet).

Gore searches for rumors, work, and a cure for Schaphigroadaz’ Spoilation from Dramas the Hawk, and learns that beneath the Black Hollow in Old City is the key to considerable riches.

June July is frustrated by the greedy priest of the Temple of Justicia.

Largo searches in vain for a cure for the Spoilation before finally settling on the sisters of Lasheeva, the Lady of Dissolution. They perform a dangerous ritual to cure him — successfully — but in doing so, the party is drawn through a portal to the Purple Planet for reasons unknown.

They emerge to witness a battle between Kith beast-men, unravel the secret to a door rune, and plunder two strange weapons. Trapped on the alien planet, they ponder their next move.
