Episode: Prayers and Dreams
Posted by Story on 08/21/17
The second voyage of nobles heading out to the Whispered Isles did not go as smoothly as the first. Those that made it back were ashen faced, haunted by the sights they had witnessed. A full quarter of the guardsmen were lost, and those that returned spoke of horrors that still haunt their dreams. A massive ritual atrocity was carried out against the native Shav'Arvani living there, their children held hostage by a cult of fanatics. And when the people refused to join the monstrous cult, their children paid the price, sacrificed to the dark beast they worship, their bodies arranged in gruesome fashion. Those that went on the mission aided the Shav'Arvani in their quest for vengeance, putting down the sect calling themselves the Children of Malar. Count Kael Keaton took a spear wound for his efforts, but the others, Lord Gaston Blackram, Lady Shae Keaton, Lady Jael Laurent, Lady Monique Greenmarch and Countess Reigna Keaton escaped unharmed. For their efforts in defeating the sect, the tribe leader bent knee, swearing allegiance to High Lord, Prince Edain Valardin, expanding the borders of the Oathlands to the Whispering Isles.
