The Spire

Starless Night

Anthony’s Journal
… After i finally caught up to the spider in a canyon, i waited for my fellow hunters, and my new found brother, he’s definitely an odd one. After the others showed up, we went in after it. during the fight we got attacked from another one, no real problem. When the fight ended i did a quick search of what was probably there den, found some useful treasures, the caravan members there didn’t need them any more. I met back up with the others, overhead there was a Roc, we decided to wait in the canyon for it to pass. Night was coming, very strangely a starless one, cloud covered the whole sky, very peculiar indeed. We decided to be on our way, off in the distance there looked to be some travelers, i went to go check them out. Boco, My faithful mount, was getting really spooked as we were nearing to them. when we finally got closer i don’t blame him, there was a unnatural chill that went rolling through my entire body. they started advancing toward me, weapons drawn, undead creatures, never seen any thing of the sort before this night, and it wouldn’t be the last. i high tailed it back to the group, i didnt want to go directly toward them in case the undead monstrosities were following me, so i took a roundabout route. i was heading straight toward them when the signal light went off in case i couldn’t find them, i didn’t need the help tho. After i met back up with the group, we need a name i think, we headed toward the hunter’s outpost. There were two veteran hunters there as well, drinking and having a good time, i don’t like to par take in drinking but being there with them was still a delight. In the middle of the night we were woken abruptly with a loud sound coming from outside, we went out to check it out. It was a massive worm, the two veterans fought it, me and my group left pretty fast tho. A little while after leaving we encountered more undead monsters, we fought them off easily enough. We were heading toward a military outpost, one more time before we got there however we had to fight more of the undead, no casualties, i got hurt a little but the oracle healed me pretty good. A group of soldiers came out to help us to the outpost, probably a good thing too. With their help we made it there in no time at all. The undead were here as well, there was no chance they could breach the wall however. We met with the commander of the outpost, who gave us a mission to go to a town not too far away and check up on it. He also suggested that we talk to the caravan leader. We did, he seemed pretty pompous to me, don’t much care for him. Eventually we headed out to the town. A sandstorm was approaching us fast, we had to hurry to the town. We made it, no big problems of any sort. The town seemed odd, especially the old man we were talking to

Selected exempts from Voru’s Journal:

The village elder with whom we spoke seems particularly to be hiding something. I can sense a magic about this place, but he seems reluctant to admit its existence. Perhaps he truly believes it’s simply an artifact of the area, but I don’t think it’s that simple.

The child seemed to want to tell us more, but he was scared off by the elder; perhaps he’ll be more talkative if I can get him alone.
