Legacy of War
Order of Seluna, Part 1
The Silverstars are clerics of any denomination who band together and fight for the light, they fight against darkness itself disregarding good vs evil or law vs chaos. One such group of Silverstars (Opal, Jethrol, Alfonce, K-Shar and Brax) come upon a tavern after a long days of travelling a deserted land. The innkeeper is unusually kind and welcomes the extra gold for them to rent all the rooms for the night (they wish to keep trouble to a minimum as the Silverstars is not often welcomed by the general populace). He then goes to the kitchen and brings back large mugs of ale and a nice meal for the clerics. As soon as it was in front of them Alfonce cast detect poison and Jethrol took a sip of the ale. The food and drink was indeed poisoned. Jethrol, being not very strong of body immediately fell into a deep slumber while the rest of the party turned on the now frightened innkeeper. The innkeeper was able to make it through his cellar to a large cavern and past a terrifying array of large hatched insect eggs and a poisonous looking river before the beasts started to crawl through the holes that riddled the walls. Grabbing the innkeeper Alfonce flew back up the trapdoor to the bar. Everyone else who had jumped down was able to make it out (there was no ladder and the rope was not strong so Brax had to give Opal a lift). In the nick of time because Brax was then poised to set fire to the pile of bodies beneath the trapdoor to destroy the creatures before they could escape. Realizing the building was about to go up in flames the party, spread what alcohol they could find to feed the flames, tied up the innkeeper for questioning and fled the building. The innkeeper didn’t have much in the way of information for them but to tell them of “her” voice and that he was compelled to feed travellers to the creatures growing beneath his tavern. The heroes contemplated this new mystery and sat back to watch the bonfire.
