Garen Mylari
left-aligned image
Rising above the edge of the pit, Garen saw the cloud of mist enveloping the area. Knowing his allies, and the dragon, must be inside, he dove in blades at the ready. He felt the danger around him; this was Vegsundvaag's turf, not his, but he still held the advantage of his invisibility. Rather than search aimlessly, he held position close to the ground, where he hoped she wold return to menace the others, and prepared to take her by surprise.

Kelda, waiting with the others on the ground, cursed at the beast and waited for another opportunity to attack.

The Hunter become the HuntedWith the howling icy winds pelting our heroes from seemingly all directions, a distinctive scream cuts through, sending a frightening chill down the spines of our heroes. A moment later red snow seemed mixed among the storm and a dull thud is heard as a pair of familiar legs fall from the sky and splat against the ground. The lower half of Mari's torso was on clear display for all to see. Mari was dead. This dragon had claimed another life.

Steeling their nerves and hardening their hearts, Vagnar, Silverbolt and Ayako went back to back. This was it. Somehow they would have to defeat this dragon, or die trying.

An unmistakably draconic roar ripped through the valley as the dragon suddenly dived low for an attack. It swung its tail in a wide arc, in an attempt to strike all three heroes. At the same time, our heroes gambled everything to launch a counter attack at the same time before it could fly away.

Zak and Vagnar lunched with tusk and claw while Silverbolt and Ayako struck with their flaming weapons. It was a devastating exchange on both sides, but neither was done just yet. The dragon quickly ascended back out of range from the Princess and her two knights, when suddenly a powerful blow was landed to the back of the dragon's neck. Unkown to her, she had picked up an invisible passenger who had dug his magical blade deep inside her, penetrating her protective scales.

Everything else was going according to plan, everything but this. Vegsundvaag began to do barrel rolls in the sky, trying to knock the invisible pest free, but Garen was dug in tight and the more she moved, the deeper his blade sunk. Blood began to flow freely, covering the satyr and spoiling the spell, but it no longer mattered.

Vegsundvaag lost consciousness from the massive blood loss and suddenly the two were in free fall. Thankfully, Garen didn't have to rely on the dragon, he could fly. He moved to free himself but was horrified he had wedged himself too well into the dragon's scales; his hoof was stuck. The ground was quickly approaching. Panic began to sink in. Garen began hacking at the scales near his hoof.

From the ground, Ayako and the others could not see what was happening until it was almost too late. The dragon slammed into the ice near our heroes with such tremendous force, a tidal wave of snow and shattered ice washed over them, covering them near to their neck in loose icy snow.

As they dug themselves out, a blood soaked Garen gently landed near them. Thankfully, none of the blood was his. A moment later the icy storm began to dissipate and the flog lifted allowing the sun to once more to shine down upon them.
OOCOfficially, the round started with the Dragon full attacking Mari in the sky. She died long before the dragon ran out of attacks.

To speed things along, the next round, the dragon did a flyby attack in which I am going to say she had a boss ability to tail sweep everyone. This triggered your Readied attacks and you did massive amounts of damage. Especially Garen.

FYI, Garen, Ayako, Spivy, Silverbolt, Vagnar and Zak take
Dice Cold Damage:
1d6 6


The fog cloud is now gone.

Dice Ayako, Silverbilt, Vagnar, Zak are attacked by a Tail Slap all at once:
1d20+19-4 (8)+19-4 Total = 23

Dice Damage:
1d8+18 (7)+18 Total = 25


The dragon was then finished off by Garen.
DavexDavex was limited in his way of helping, so he did the best thing he could. Check the loot. Smashing through the icy lair protecting the treasure trove, Davex then used his Light spell to get a better view while using Detect magic. The room was filled with gold, silver, copper, and gem stones of every type and variety. Weapons, armor and other gear littered the piles of money, many of which glowed with magical auras. It was a true dragon's horde as heard in legends.

This first item to catch his eye was a pair of boots with tiny wings on the ankles. He had an idea of what that meant, but the big question was how to use them?

The dragon is dead!The sight of Mari's half torso, guts and legs flying and landing on them is traumatizing at best. Ayako saw death before but never mutilation like that. The wizard got slaughtered in pieces and never stood a chance. Barely realizing what happened, the dragon dives low and slam them with his tail, pushing Ayako upside down, but protected by her magical aura. Some of her friends weren't as lucky and get splashed all over the place. The princess land on her back without any damage except her pride, when she lifts her head to look around, the dragon died by an awesome move from Garen. She can only notice the massive wound on the dragon's neck, having no idea how he pulled that off. The battle is finished, she drops heavily her heads back on the snow, before realizing that she is lying near Mari remains. Quickly she turns back on the other side and pukes everything she had in her stomach. Such a horrible sight.

Ayako takes a couple of minutes and get back straight on her feet with a stoic expression and with the blink of an eye, heals her companions in

two waves. - " Does someone need more help? " She sheathes her sword and sit on a bank of snow to recompose herself. Mari death is a tragedy, as it would for any companions of the party that die at the service of her sister's destiny. She feels sorry for her that she wasn't the right person to give her the attention she wanted and ended up like this before finding what she was looking for. It still feels odd this whole idea of bringing people back from the dead, who knows, maybe Mari finally found peace now and she would be better off without this suicide mission that will just cause her more pain and misery.

When her thoughts about Mari fade away for a moment, she is facing the enormous draconic carcasses. Such a shame that a wise and magic creature was driven into madness by someone from Iqaliat. Only one person would have the means to get in there and break the eggs, the Oracle behavior was suspicious and didn't want them really to succeed here. He must be involved somehow, but she doesn't care much right now. Beating the truth out of the Oracle will have to wait. Ayako won't have any once of mercy for those responsible for the dragon's wrath that caused the bloodbath of Iquiat folks and the death of a companion that was necessary to stop the slaughtering.

So passes the cruel wyrm VegsundvaagThe war veteran at first does not register the body of their fallen comrade. Too focused on the lizard trying to eat them, his limbs were coiled like a spring for the instant the predator revealed herself. With a roar, she lashes out. Parrying with his shield, Silverbolt sinks his burning lance into the dragon's hide. Then, for some reason, the dragon lets out a pained roar in the sky. Some thrashing in the air is the only preface the warriors on the ground get before the dragon crashes into the icecap like a meteor.

Trying to gain his bearings, the centaur knight plows himself out of the snow blanket with a loud grunt. He makes sure that Ayako and the others are likewise accounted for via centaur snowplow. Spying the descending satyr, the panting knight looks between him and the fallen dragon. "That mess in the sky, your doing?" he asks with a tired smile.

With the waning adrenaline, the knight finally spots the grisly remains of their mage. His expression falls for the poor girl. She went out of her way to try to make the newcomer feel welcome, and he was honored to call her a dear friend. With a determined canter, the centaur approaches the vile wyrm and verifies that she is quite dead. Then, he lodges his magical lance between her jaws and, with a mighty wrench, pries them open. Only Mari's lower torso made it to the ground; little wonder where the rest of her is. Not nearly as versed in restorative magics as a true healer, he does not know how much of a body is needed.

The dragon is dead!After a moment of mental rest, the princess walk toward the centaur who looked puzzled in front of the mage's remains. Silently she puts her delicate right hand on the horseman flank, not able to reach his shoulder. - " I will help you. We should burn her remains at Iqaliat with a proper ceremony. Mari's... finger... should suffice if the seal allows her to come back in the living in a couple of weeks or so. " She still fear the consequence of using the seal and have the Jade Regent to pinpoint their location and ruin their attempts at discretion, however that would be so selfish to bring it up now. She cuts a finger from one of Mari's hand that is found nearby and put it in a pouch. With the cold, it shouldn't rot during the trip. With her companion help, she gathers and wrap her body remains in a large blanket and attach it together, ready to be dragged back to town, unless her companion offer one of those magic bags to carry those.

Vagnar Akselson
left-aligned image
Vagnar let out an anguished roar as Mari’s remains fell to the ground. As the clouds dispersed, he sniffed at the dragon’s jaws but couldn’t find any more of his fallen friend. He turned toward his living comrades. "It sounds like someone in that village provoked this. Let’s get back there and...discuss it with them." At that last, the way he showed off his long sabertooth fangs made it clear exactly what kind of “discussion” the druid had in mind.

Reaping the RewardsThe loss of a friend is tragic and affects everyone differently. But life goes on and there is treasure to be rescued. Under Ayako's direction, Vagner set to stripping the dragon carcass of scales while the others met up with Davex to sort and count the dragon's horde.

Dragon HideYou obtain enough dragon scales you can craft a Heavy Armor. This heavy armor acts like Mithral but also provides two additional bonuses. First, the armor provides a constant 10 cold energy resistance. Secondly, the armor can produce an aura upon command(free action so long as she can speak) once per day for 1 round per character level to inflict 1d6 cold damage automatically at the start of your turn to anything within 5 feet of Ayako. This affects allies and enemies alike. She may end effect early but not on the same round she turned it on.

You will gain a +2 Samurai styled Eastern Heavy Armor of your choice that acts like Mithral if you trade your armor, pay and additional 5,000 GP and give the Blacksmith in town 14 days to work.
TreasureOne arrow with a strong magical aura
Magical short sword
Magical Ring
A horse terra-cotta talisman
A wand
Magical light steel shield
Magical cold iron spiked gauntlet,
Magical composite shortbow (+2 Strength) with 11 arrows
Magical spear
Climber’s kit
200 feet of silk rope
a piece of amber (worth 100 gp)
three bloodstones (worth 50 gp each)
a blue sapphire (worth 500 gp)
a leather quiver decorated with winter wolf fur and tooled with Snowcaster elf designs (worth 500 gp)
3,104 cp, 2,521 sp, 594 gp, and 202 pp.


With their loot in tow, our heroes made their way back to confront the Oracle with the evidence they had found.

SpiveySpivey could feel Mari's spirit leave her body and quickly began to cry. It took her a few moments to recover as the party finished looting the horde.

Reaching into her little pack, she removes a letter, something Mari had written up before they faced the dragon. She flies over by Ayako, with a tear in her eye and hands the letter to her. Mari wanted me to give this to you if anything like this happened to her. she comments as she hands her the letter.

LetterDear Sisters,

I know we haven't always seen eye to eye. So I wanted to thank you for the brief time we have shared together. It was a blessing to have met both of my sisters.

My only regret is not being able to protect you any more and helping you retake what is yours.

There were still some hurdles we needed to cover, but in the end I have no regrets sacrificing myself for the family. After all, a bastard child might only make things worse as you try to accomplish things. But at least, light a candle once a year and keep me in your memories.

I will always be with you in mind and spirit. If you need anything just ask the spirits and I will answer.

Please, keep yourselves safe and do not use the seal on me, risking the demons attention. We shall meet again one day. But until then, please live a full and fruitful life, for I have given mine to help nurture it.

Love always,
Mari

The dragon is dead!Ayako didn't expect a farewell letter, this is actually a smart thing to do in this bloody quest. After seeing Garen and now Mari dying, she should make one of her own. - " Thank you Spivey. You did well, I would understand if you want to part way with us at the first opportunity if you saw enough. It's been a difficult road since Brinewall, I can give you the key to the place if you want to return. " She keeps the letter for later when she can read it alone and quietly. Knowing that her half-sister had a tendency for the dramatic, she doesn't want to show more emotions in public at the moment.

The return to Iqaliat is heavy, doesn't feels like a victory again. It's starting to be depressing that every difficult battle lately ended up in tragedy. They enter the town with a lot of proof of their deeds, skin, horns, scales, there's plenty to show off. Their first halt is at Sonavut's place to get some rest and plan their next move. She finds a safe place for Mari's remains, cold enough to don't rot and out of reach of dogs and other animals. She will prepare a cremation ceremony later when the matter of the Oracle is dealt with.

Davex A few minutes later Davex crawled out of the pit.

Panting he looks around, his eyes adjusting to the surface. What the Hell happened up here?

It seemed serious whatever it was, and Davex was upset that he’d missed it, but it couldn’t have been helped, their plans always seemed to go sideways.

Seeing the despair that had spread amongst the group, it didn’t take Davex long to notice the human gore mixed in amongst the dragons.

Who?

Then he saw the crying Lyrakein they had met what felt like forever ago – and he knew, it was the wizardess.

Instinctively his hand reached for the seal, guarded in his breast pocket, but he knew that the seal was tapped like keg at the end of the night – it had no power left, even should Davex decide to use it.

Placing a gentle hand on the tiny Azata’s shoulder Davex offers a prayer to help the traveling cleric, Blessed is the long road, the destination, the homeward path, and all who make the journey. Giving her shoulder a tiny squeeze, Davex reports to Ayako of the treasures and findings in the cave.

It appeared that they had been led into yet another trap. Davex was growing weary of such games.

There was going to be a reckoning, and Davex hoped no innocents were caught in the crossfire.

Garen Mylari
left-aligned image
Garen knelt beside what remained of Mari's body, not attempting to hide his tears. Why was it that every decision they made, every path they took, seemed to lead to pain? Were they simply fools, or was there simply no safe way for them to go? All he wanted was to be able to protect his friends, was that so much to ask? He had just killed a dragon, for gods' sake, and it still wasn't enough. It wasn't fair. Mari had only been with them for a few months, he was just getting to know her, and he wasn't ready to say goodbye. Taking Whispering Shrike, he sliced a long ribbon of her robes and tied it to the blade's hilt. It fluttered gently in the wind, a splash of vibrant purple against the white of the snow and the red of blood. A reminder for him, of one more person dead because he hadn't been able to save her. A reminder that next time he would have to be better. "Rest now, Mari," he whispered. "You've earned it."

Rising to his hooves, he began to cast his magic to clean the quickly drying dragon blood that covered his body, but stopped. Better to leave it for the time being. There were people in Iqaliat they needed to visit, people responsible for Mari's death, and he wanted them to feel fear when they saw him coming.

Triumphant ReturnThe trip back was slower and much harder than the arrival due mostly impart to being loaded to the gill with treasure, dragon scales, and in the case of Silverbolt, dragging behind him a severed Dragon's head atop a makeshift sled. It was nearly dark when the village came back into sight. As the young hunters on watch saw the price, horns began to go off from all directions as many ran back to the village to spread the word. A crowd of nearly the entire village had gathered at the centre of town as our heroes returned.

Pretty much everyone was cheering and celebrating, not a single one of them seemed remorseful about their earlier actions, nor did they seem to notice a missing party member. The only person who could see the pain in their eyes was Sonny. The large woman walked over and gave Ayako a hug and simply said, "Welcome back." Her warm, gentle hug said more than words ever could.

Many of the young fighters, took the head from Silverbolt and set it on display in the centre of town for all to admire and soon drinks were being passed out. An impromptu party had begun in the centre of town to celebrate the heroes. Large fires were built to keep the area warm and well lit as the sun began to disappear over the horizon. Soon the smell of food and smoke filled the air. Despite all the chaos and fun, it was easy to note the oracle was no where to be seen, his long gnarly staff being easy to spot in a crowd.

As the party got under way, Sonny walked over to Silverbolt and took him by the hand. "I have a surprise for you at the Inn."

The dragon is dead!The priestess has a lot on her mind and didn't really expect a party or celebration. Ayako responds shyly to the strong hugs - " Thank you, I'm glad this is done. Unfortunately, Mari didn't make it. " She understands that it makes sense for the villagers to explode in joy, they spent the last months wondering if they are living their last day. With a heavy heart, she is not in the mood to celebrate, the one most likely responsible for Mari's death is nowhere to be seen. She takes one drink, but barely touch it, looking right and left for the oracle in vain. Looking at Silverbolt approaching what she believes to be a female centaur, she takes a brief sip of her drink.

Surprise in IqaliatThe centaur knight lugs the beast's head behind him in pensive silence. The wizard's farewell casts a peculiar pallor over the great victory. 'Soul drift off to its rest, dear Mari, and your blood rest avenged,' sends he his prayers off. His spirit echoes similar sentiment for his fallen comrades along the woods. His fingers brush against the various tokens of that he kept with him. A particular sense of peace & relief settles upon the knight. With an extra kick to the head behind him, the centaur's step grows lighter, and a bittersweet smile curls on his face.

Silverbolt relates more with the crowd's jubilation than many of his comrades. Relief swelled among those for whom the lives were lost to the dragon. The beast touched everyone in town to a certain extent. The parade of vengenance enacted was a joyous balm upon the still fresh grief of everyone.

Silverbolt is about to trot amid the celebration when Sonny catches his attention. Cocking his head curiously, "Ok," he voices uncertainly. Walking after her, he adds, "Oh, I noticed rather oddly that the oracle is not among the throngs. Is he about?"
