There was a weak ass hook of the lord of Kellborough dying through poison and so Leon (Ben) went to talk to the visiting nobles with Quinn (Jayme). At the same time Thorin (Dillon) and Balasar (Erik) went to the most traveled gate to see if they could catch the killer as he left.
Leon and Quinn went to the Mermaid’s Whisper to talk to the nobles, where Leon posed as a man whore and seduced the vistiting noble of Zahrivo. She then turned out to be a member of the blind syndicate, and Leon killed her when she couldn’t reveal anything.
Thorin and Balasar waited at the gate until there was a man who did not stop when a guard tried to flag him down. Balasar rushed through the crowd and knocked the hasty man unconscious. They then took the man to the guard house for interrogation. Upon trying to wake the unconscious man, Lord Madric bursts through the door exclaiming about undead.
Upon reaching the docks, the party sees three canoes with two zombies each slowly being washed to the shore. Balasar rushes out and attempts to burn the zombies and their boat, but fails to catch fire to the canoe. Leon leaps up on the ballistas on the wall, but fails to hit any canoes. The guards come and fill one canoe with arrows and sink the other two with the ballista. Once the last boat fell, a large, bright light shone from the island.
The party is then promised 100 gold each if they travel to the island and stop whatever is the source of these undead. While having this conversation, Quinn was stricken by a bought of madness and attempted to kill the Guard Captain. He unfortunately failed to land a blow, and instead was slain by Leon. They ended up agreeing to take on the task, and left with a boat onto the island.
They landed late into the night, and immediately left for the source of the light. While traveling they were ambushed by a group of 8 zombies. They defeated them with only minor wounds to Balasar, and nothing that a healing kit could not fix for Throin. Once they got to where they estimated the source of the light would be, they found a tomb with pictures showing a procession of some sort, and scribing they were unable to read.
Exploring this tomb, they found the left tunnel to be trapped, and after exploring it, and taking the coins from the dead’s mouths, they backed out and set off a trap, purposefully, closing off the crypt area with a large gate. They then decided to split up, Balasar exploring the farthest right tunnel, and Leon and Throin exploring the center tunnel.
The right tunnel yields nothing but linens and mouth-coins on the ground. There are also signs that the bodies left of their own volition. Through the center tunnel, which sinks far into the earth, there is a large dome, lined with hundreds of bodies in cubbies, and in the center a pile of bodies surrounded by five slabs in a pentagonal shape. After making sure the room was clear of moving corpses, Thorin lets out a screech, waking 5 fresh zombies from the pile, and alerting Balasar to come running.
The session ended there.
