War Against Existance

Treck to the Temple
"You wanna fight the Bear?"

Upon waking from a very eventful night, a few of the early risers, Apollo, and Maxwell, sat around and discussed plans, and Raiza decided to take a walk in the woods. upon which, Jacob had come out of his tent and let the members know that there was in the distance from the camp. They worked tirelessly to open It, but to no avail, they didn’t want to destroy it for fear it may contain some nice loot. Eventually, with the right tools and help, they were able to overcome the chest and get their new gear.

The party decided to move on, but not before a large gust of wind turned into a monster completely made out of the air around them. after a very intense battle where party members were downed, they over came it and decided to keep moving.

Long trails, Traps, and wildlife were along there path, but they finally came around a bend and were met with a face familiar to some and strange to others. “Guys, that’s Chandler!” Max said as he and the party drew their weaponry. Chandler just smiled and reached behind his back, pulling out a dagger, and tossed it at Raiza’s feet, And backed away slowly, suddenly disappearing into thin air.

Upon investigation of the Blade, Raiza came to realize that the handle had his families Sigil on it. Weird, but that want the Weirdest part, on the end of the blade, there was a second sigil, a boat sailing in the sea with two swords in the background. Raiza put it on his person immediately, and they gave chase.

The party members soon found themselves not running down a clear path, but ambushed by a party of orcs. One of whom was able to snag Raiza by the collar, the other party members were able to dodge. The situation seemed dire, and they realized that they weren’t the only ones that were ambushed, Chandler was in a very similar situation. The party gave their attempts to convince the orcs that they were the good guys, but with a silver tongue, and a keen grasp on the orcish language, it seemed Chandler was able to convince them the opposite.

Now the Group is being escorted in bonds to what they think is the tribes camp where they believe that they can convince the chieftain of their innocence. But the situation could turn deadly at any turn.

Chapter 1: Abandon Ship!
Skeletons Swimming?

We start off the story with our adventurer group, Apollo, Raiza, Maxwell, and “Nec”, on a voyage to the mysterious is mysterious island of Marleva. They hitched a ride on a local ship for various reasons, adventure, learning, glory, money. They met the captain, a very stern man named Valeros, and his right hand man Jacob, a rather small sorcerer that is told to have an exceptionally keen knowledge of arcane and divine magic alike, although he can’t wield it as well as he knows it.

Captain Valeros had relayed to the crew that he was escorting “Special Cargo” to the island of Marleva, and that no one but authorized people should be allowed below decks.

Upon reaching the outskirts of Marleva, he took the time to congratulate the crew and their hard work, and wanted to reward them by celebrating with the best rum that he could buy. He told one of the newcomers Maxwell, to head down below deck and get a case of rum. When down there, he met a strangely trustworthy man named Chandler, who tried to convince him that the men running this boat were bad news and that Max should loosen his chains and free him. Maxwell was rather trusting at first, but decided not to help the man, for fear it may be the wrong decision.

He went back up to the deck with the rum and passed out the bottles, Jacob and Valeros took some bottles and handed them out as well, upon offering some to Apollo at the bow of the ship, he refused, this seemingly disappointed Valeros, but he most likely thought nothing of it. After the night of drinking had passed, most of the crew had passed out includeing Captain Valeros and Jacob. The only people that had not passed out were one mercenary, Apollo and Maxwell.

While looking over the bow of the ship, staring off at Marleva, Apollo noticed a strange mist on the water, and suddenly heard a shriek coming from the other side of the ship. He turned to notice a group of skeletons had come on board and were attacking the mercenary. Apollo immediately ran into combat, along with Maxwell. The combat was difficult, but the party overcame the skeletons after most of the party and mercenaries had came to from the rum.

Upon gaining consciousness, Valeros had realized that Chandler had escaped and commandeered the services of the party to go to the island and track him down.

While rowing the life boats, they were once again attacked by skeletons, the party managed to fight them off long enough to make it to the island, but Valeros and Jacob weren’t so lucky, losing their boat in the process and getting injured.

The party decided that it was best to set up camp for the night. They needed to be ready what would come tomorrow.
