008 – In the Bath – Soaking Off the Sewers

Another day started and it was time to pursue the kobolds. The sewer system was a simple radial design. Mostly water flowed through the tunnels, with slippery paths along the side. Given that we had waited to pursue, tracks were impossible to find so we picked a direction and began to walk deeper into the sewers. There were some rats. It is possible, given their tenacity that some sort of demonic power has influenced the rats, but we vanquished them all the same.

Past the demon rats, we found the remains of animals and humans with bruising and strange bite marks. Continuing down the tunnel, we soon found the source of the odd bites. A creature with a purple worm-like body, a beak mouth, and slicer tipped tentacles, called a grick. It was a hard battle to defeat this creature, and we decided that that kobolds could not have come this way so we turned to follow the tunnels out toward the ocean.

Once we hit the outside world again, dropping onto a beach, Za’lynn was able to pick up the tracks of the kobolds in the sand. We followed them around to a cave that descended under the city. There were traps in the cramped tunnels and we did what we could to avoid them. What we could not avoid was the notice of the kobolds.

They were holed up in a small earthen room, four of them, along with a sickly looking baby bronze dragon. Tayanna attempted to speak with the dragon, but it would not seem to want to be saved. After a rather dangerous fight, complete with poison and lighting from the mouth of the baby dragon, we finally put all the creatures down.

In the aftermath, we found a small nest of dragon eggs, each one infected by the foul soup it rested We also found a magical necklace on one of the kobolds. It held the image of a kraken. So, we’re back to that. We destroyed the eggs and left… to bathe.

  1. I am 3 baths in and I don’t think the stench of that sewer will ever truly wash off!

    I expected more from, as Zeno put it, ‘our first dragon or starter dragon’ – I am by no means saying that I wish to be a Dragon hunter. It’s more that they are impressive creatures of power and regal bearing – I believe all cats are descended from dragons. The attitude, the impressive amount of sleeping, the need to create stashes everywhere. I dare anyone to prove me wrong.

    That being said, to see one so young that sick and corrupted. That was just wrong. These Kobolds are truly foul creatures.

      • I do find my new shiny necklace to rather pretty and certain to be useful but I can’t state enough how much it displeases me that it has an image of a kraken on it! Wonder if I can get that buffed out?

    • I’m not positive, but I think she’s been creating these sketches.

      The wonders and horrors that are created the brain of someone so pint sized is a truly terrifying thing.
