Honeysuckle
left-aligned image

The minotaur known as Honeysuckle decides it is high time that they got back out there and put a stop to this cult once and for good.
Barely literate, Honeysuckle puts pen to paper and scrawls out notes for his comrades.
Note "Meet att tabern toomarroo

tamarroo tomarrw
Next day naight. Hanisaku"


He set out and hand delivers each one, skidding it under their respective doors.

He wrote and extra note for a comrade from years ago. Rolan, they had ventured into the ravine of caves together and befriended some Bullywogs. He was a magic user, and a novice back then, but perhaps he had grown and perhaps knolwddgable in the content of the book they found.

On the evening of the following day Honeysuckle is found sat at a table at the tavern with 4 empty seats.

Torgrun Stonethrower - Hill Dwarf Druid(Sheet) (XP and Loot)
right-aligned image


Torgrun walked into the tavern and immediately saw Honeysuckle sitting at a table by himself. He was hard to miss, his huge frame and bull head sticking out like a sore horn. "Aye, good ta see ya HS. I see the others ain't arrivin' yet. I gots ta complement ya on your writin'. It's gettin' a lot better. I can actually read it now and it makes sense," said Torgrun sitting on one of the chairs at the table. It hadn't been long since they arrived back from being stranded on the island, but like HS Torgrun was anxious to get back out to stop the evil cult, especially with his new found magical connections he recently acquired.

Glanteth Thorinson
left-aligned image
Glanteth smiled at the note. He hadn't expected Honeysuckle to be literate at all, so at least he was trying. Having spent the past few weeks in research and even having scribed a scroll, the Norseman was becoming proud of his hand. It had taken a lot of practice and effort to develop it beyond looking like a child had formed the letters. Especially because he'd never even learned as a child. Most of his people were illiterate, even their precious history being passed by word of mouth.

It seemed that anything worth achieving came with a great deal of grueling effort, Glanteth thought as he glanced down at his missing stomach. A run around the town walls every morning in his new splint mail had kept it off after losing it to that week of subsisting on a single goodberry per day. It had also done a great deal for his overall muscle tone and definition, although a mirror had already told that it was difficult to see much difference through his armor. Some of the women in the temple had noticed when he showed up there to do some research in his street clothes, eyeing him up and down and showering him with coy compliments to his discomfort.

"Honeysuckle! Torgrun!" The Norseman grinned broadly through his blond beard as he approached the ale-laden table. "You're both looking well!" Glanteth grimaced inwardly as soon as he'd made the comment, realizing he'd been subconsciously fishing for a return compliment from someone who'd noticed his new physique. He hated that type of insecure behavior from others and couldn't hardly believe he'd done it. Attempting to move past the moment, "What's going on Honeysuckle? Did you find a lead or have some kind of idea?"

Rikke Skyhammer
right-aligned image
The note caught her eye immediately as she dropped out of the human-sized bed to the floor and she wandered over to find a nice note from Honeysuckle, which was not as exciting as a letter from a fan which it totally could have been now that she was a big deal adventurer, but it was still nice. She didnít speak or write the minotaur language, but it seemed close enough to the common tongue that she was able to piece together the meaning of the note. Must be difficult to write with hands that big she thought as she tucked the note away in her bag, right next to the mostly forgotten book of demon summoning. Without giving it another thought, Rikke went about her usual business: getting dressed, getting breakfast, reincarnating her brotherís soul into the body of a magical mule.

The next day she spent most of her time in her room, sitting and waiting, without much else to do in West Haven, and most certainly not wanting to get distracted and miss the meeting. When she came down from her room, she found the others already sitting at a table, and Rikke waved excitedly to her friends. As she rushed forward to meet them, the small dwarf caught her foot on the leg of an out-turned chair and promptly disappeared from view as she hit the floor. Oblivious to the laughter directed her way by other patrons, she popped right back up and continued waving, scrambling up into an empty chair as she arrived.

ĒHello!Ē

Honeysuckle
left-aligned image

Honeysuckle gives each of the party a bone crunching hug as they arrive. Rikke's being a little less tight on account of her just falling ass over face.
He takes his seat and begins the meeting, arms places out in front of him so that his friends know he means business."Thank you for coming. I can't wait longer. We must finish the cult now. I invite an old friend. He is Rolan. Maybe he can help with book, or may be he can help with fighting. More people is better, no?"

"Remember Mrs. Gelch? Her baby was about to pop when we left a few weeks ago. I'd really like to check on her and her baby - just to see, you know?" The Norseman was still trying to recover from the Minotaur's hug, hoping he didn't have a cracked rib and finally regaining his breath. "She's related to our very first encounter with this cult. I'd just really like to make sure they're okay."

"Hey, did you have a lead you called us here for? I want to nail that damned succubus!" Glanteth spouts off, ignoring the double entendre that he'd blurted.

Honeysuckle
left-aligned image

Honeysuckle strokes his bovine chin thoughtfully at the mention of the pregnant lady. "Glech...that good idea....I hope everything okay..." Thoughts of the worst outcome flooded his mind."Soon is best to go. I not have other leads, but maybe Rolan can understand book well. He is magic...more magic than me."

"Yeah, that would be nice if he can make something out of it. I also have drawings of the summoning circle and that "rune scar" that seems to take over people's minds. I doubt there'll be anything definitive about the circle, but I'd like to get an arcane opinion about that scar as well."

The Norseman settled back in his chair then, enjoying the ale while they waited.

The book. Rolen is Int 9 (-1). However, he does have a Helm of Comprehend Languages. Rolen will 'help' anyone who wishes to decipher the book.

@SecretID, Rolen has shifted things up a bit, dropping Agonizing Blast and selecting Improved Pact Weapon. His weapons are Staff of the Adder and a longbow - which means he is not normally running around with a Shield equipped.

Once you use this feature, you cant use it again until you finish a short or long rest. Favored of Gods 1/1 (SR)

A Inisght 25 to see through Rolen's disguisehooded and cowled figure approached the table. the figure gave the group a long piercing glance before sitting down. "Honeysuckle, it has been quite some time. However, I would know you anywhere." The figure briefly flicked back its hood to reveal a pale face - almost white, and a pair of haunted black eyes. "Even mentioning my name can be dangerous in these times. Vampires and undead hunters stalk the streets of Westhaven. Who is hunting who changes from moment to moment."

Rolen looked down at the book. He chuckled and shook his head, "I was never much for book learning. Give me a play or a songbook, and it meant nothing until I had the chance to play or sing it out. Still, I have a helm that helps me understand exotic languages. Perhaps I can help with the translation."

Honeysuckle
left-aligned image

Honeysuckle was very, very confused. Who was this guy, sitting down with them like he so confident. "Sorry. That chair waiting for someone. I not know you. How you know about book!?"...And why was this guy going on about singing. Honeysuckle's brow started to crease. This guy was getting annoying...or...Perhaps he was part of the cult! Honeysuckle's hand start to slowly crawl to his battle axe leaning against the table.

Torgrun Stonethrower - Hill Dwarf Druid(Sheet) (XP and Loot)
right-aligned image


Engaged in conversation with the rest of the party, Torgrun saw from the corner of his gaze the hooded figure as he sat on the empty chair. By the looks of him, had he not known who this was Torgrun would have been wary of the character, but it seemed this must have been the friend that Honeysuckle was waiting for. Or was he? Honeysuckle just stated that he didn't know him! Torgrun slowly turned to square up to the hooded figure and brought his shield slightly up and to the front while his free hand imperceptibly reached into his pouch. He waited to see what Honeysuckle would do next.

ĒVampires? Iíve never seen a vampire. Are they scary? I bet theyíre scary,Ē Rikke rambled on, seemingly ignorant of the tension that had descended on the table. She quickly about-faced and began on a different line of conversation entirely, ĒOh, I bet itís a cute baby. We should definitely go see the baby!Ē

Her enthusiasm was palpable, almost to the point that it seemed she wanted to go right that moment, until she raised her hand and ordered a drink. ĒI bet one of our wizard friends can figure out the book, like the old guy at the the other tavern with the the weird gnome and the funny mushrooms and the flying monsters that tried to kill us in the alley, but it all turned out okay because it turned out it was all a cautionary tale about taking intoxicants in moderation,Ē she finally paused to take a breath, then looked up at the others. ĒI mean, not the gnome, but the other guy, the old guy. We could just pay him to figure it out now, because he seemed smart. Kinda mean, but smart.Ē

"Hold on, everybody." Glanteth was confused, but determined to get to the bottom of this confusion. "Honeysuckle, this isn't the friend we're waiting for? How does he know you, then?" Turning back to the stranger calmly, "how do you know Honeysuckle?"
OOCI thought that I understood Rolen's disguise as being "dispelled" when he threw his hood back. This whole misunderstanding seems more like it's on the player (rather than character) level.

Rolen looked at Honeysuckle, and more importantly, the hand moving towards the Battle Axe. He did a shallow bow to the Minotaur,"Apologies old friend. Sometimes my urge to act and my paranoia get the better of me."

Rolen looked to the rest of the table, "Best that we mention no names here at the table. Suffice it to say the Honeysuckle called, and I accepted. Honeysuckle and I adventures together in the early days of the West Marches." Rolen's mouth twitched, maybe a ghost of smile, but it was gone in a thrice."In my earlier and more foolish days, Honeysuckle and I had a pair of encounters with the Bullywogs. In one, I actually, dangled my leg in a pond to attack an alligator that we were hunting."

Rolen's expression got more solem, "Now, I had some prey that are far deadlier."
