Streets of Liberty - Snowfall

Oris’ War Journal – Entry 59
Unwelcome Guests - Part 2

A band of gargoyles went for our bait, allowing us the chance to ambush and destroy them. Another new breed, this one of ice…chance, or perhaps a clue to their origin? Utilizing a piece of the gargoyle’s remains, I was able to discern that no foreign enchantment bound them; they had not been summoned. A planar rift then.

Prelude - Snowfall Chapter 3

Already well beyond the limits of Soot Street’s underground maze, the adventurers watched with some trepidation as their guide retreated back beyond the radius of their sunrod’s glow, retracing his steps back to Liberty City and leaving them alone at the mouth of a natural cavern.

By their reckoning, after half-a-day’s journey underground, they were somewhere below the forested hills north of the city – maybe a day or two from the southern border of the Hagmarsh.

Unwelcome guests

Unusual activity in the streets of the Old Quarter this day. We happened upon a trio of stony-skinned winged humanoids (further examination confirmed initial classification as gargoyles, simple elemental predator analogues) terrorizing the citizenry in a small market area. A fourth gargoyle, of a slightly different form, joined the battle once we had engaged it’s brethren (tactical note – remain alert for hidden reinforcements, creatures have substantial natural camouflage abilities). The battle was quick, and relatively one-sided, with the creatures paying next to no attention to the unarmed civilians once we had made ourselves a threat.

Alister Speaks

Anyone Oo knows me knows that I ain’t above takin’ from the rich… That ain’t no secret! But these bloody bastards aren’t just takin from the rich, they’re takin’ from everyone. Nor are they just intristed in a wee bit of goweld neither. They wants absolutely everything from everybody! They make slaves of us all they do! An’ if a man stands up or speaks up, off he gowes to gaol or most likely, they just ‘ang ‘im on the spot! Bloody tyrants they are! Well, I ‘ave learned from being in the slave galleys I ‘ave! You stand up or you get kicked in the arse harder until they kills you!

How things stand

Tiamat’s followers have control of Liberty, though not as surely as they would no doubt like, thanks to a bit of good fortune on our part…or perhaps the lightest hand of divine intervention. And with the grand gate destroyed, their ability to transfer the troops stranded in Gloomwrought should be sharply limited (strategic opportunity – limiting access to reagents and/or eliminating ritual casters). Lady Tremontaine and Grimfrost appear to be the gravest threats now that Raashiva has been forced into his reincarnation cycle (seemed too easy somehow, perhaps my perspective was skewed in his regard…). Of the two, I judge Tremontaine to be the greater danger (strategic opportunity – sow discord between forces loyal to each); a wyrm as mighty as Grimfrost must never be discounted, but by simply by virtue of his nature his is a known danger; Tremontaine on the other hand… Humans have such a grand scope that she cannot be as easily planned for, nor can her potential to influence those we seek to save – she played our band easily enough in the past.
