The Lich Must Die!

Strange Meetings in Squirrel's Bank

What's With the Purple Pig?

It was a long afternoon in the Bank…

… So, a cleric and a monk walk into a bar. Yeah, Diggle is cleaning up his pants after falling to the floor in terror after a 7’2" dragonborn knocked on his door. Although he feels marginally better knowing that his newly hired cleric with the big sword might be able to help him defend himself against the Bloody Eye Ruffians…


Meanwhile, a half-orc paladin, a gnome, and an elf ranger are walking and talking on their way to the estate of King Piatra to see his seneschal, although the orc has already been there once today, he is merely hoping for a paying job. The others are contemplating getting paid for past services rendered. However, all their minds are currently filled with varying degrees of curiosity and wonderment at the idea of enormous squirrels in the area… Naturally, this is par for the course with the gnome who doesn’t seem the least bit phased by the idea…

…In his lair the lich continues to weave his plans…

…Somewhere just outside of town some members of a local gang, commonly called the Bloody Eyes ready themselves for a night on the town, laughing raucously.

…A short man in a cowl kneels by a stream, brushing away squirrel tracks as he prays silently to his god for the protection of his people, and hopes for a hero.

…A druid in a ruin turns himself into a tree, narrowly avoiding unnatural creatures and wonders how he will cleanse his home of their stink.

…A dwarf in chainmail gets his wagon ready and hopes that his advertisement for (a) guard(s) will be fruitful as he finishes up, calls for his companion and prepares to head back to the Rabid Wolverine for an early dinner.

…A Sister and Brother, monks of the god Tokumei no, stumble back to the town shrine and each throw 5 copper coins into the well, thankful for their lives after the attack they experienced only a few minutes before.

…A princess in an enchanted tower on a distant island shivers and mumbles in her sleep.

Basically, it’s an only slightly weirder than normal day in the (mostly) quiet town of Squirrel’s Bank in the land of Nipada.

See you next week!

(Posted the map photos on Facebook. And, great minds and all that, I made the comments BEFORE reading the adventure log post just now!)
Nenuial is not actually going to accompany the Gnome and Half-Orc to the King’s estate just now. She had headed toward the town in the first place, and planned to continue on her way there to take a look around first before going to see the King. Nenuial is not as easily distracted as her player!
