The first part of the session was people making characters and coming up with some tie ins between characters as well as figure out ideals/flaws/bonds.
The party, so far is made up of Arom Tinz, a human agent of House M’ke, Ka’sed a Water Seeker thri-kreen who takes care for a lone thri-kreen egg he possesses; Kwasi, a mul warrior who seems to have a small child grafted to his forearm; and Andor a strange halfling druid.
The party found themselves waking from a nightmare, all together in small area in some rocky badlands. Their equipment was strewn about in the darkness of the late night. It was a strange situation for sure, but not the first time this had happened.
Some months ago this happened to all of you. You awoke in the night with near 30 other individuals, but within moments of waking you blacked out again and awoke alone. You each made your way back home, barely. Since then you’ve all been plagued with nighmares of a strange organic building that seeped unnatural liquids. You make your way through this buildling only to find more rooms with unknown purposes and corridors of indeterminate length.
This time was different, for Arom, Ka’sed, Kwasi, and Andor didn’t blackout again. The group briefly was at odds in this strange situation, but also realized that they had seen each other, first in the strange blackout months before and then for some, in daily life near and the city-state of Raam. From the stars Andor determined that they were some distance west of the Crescent Forest and near the area known as the Black Sands. The party decided to head west as Ablath and Silver Spring were each about a days journey and the closest settlements.
Before much more could be sorted out howls could be heard in the distance. Ka’sed left to scout and determined where the sound was coming from and found a defensible location. Andor recognized the howls and called them owned by jhakar. Smallish aggressive beasts of a reptilian nature who hunt in packs. The group quickly found common purpose and made their way to the defensible rock formation Ka’sed found.
From there they awaited the arrival of the jhakar. In the mean time Arom and Kwasi set traps for the beasts and the rest of the party climbed the rocks and laid in wait.
The battle was short and of little consequence for the seasoned athasians.
