Against the Lich King

Enter the Coven

The Hook

As the group takes shelter in the tower, dark forces move against them and the town.

Prelude

After clearing out the abandoned swamp tower, the adventurers opt to spend the night partly to see if anything else shows up and partly to avoid tromping the swamp at night.

Summary

The group shared a fitful sleep in the second floor of the tower while one member stood guard. Things went well until the dog watch when Alon heard sounds below. He quickly woke up the others and the creatures below must have heard them as they called up looking to see who they were. Things quickly became hostile.

Ropp and Arric looked out the window and saw two zombies standing guard at the fornt door. As the others taunted the intruders, Arric sent the zombies on their merry way with the power of the Blessed Attendant and Ropp made his way down the side of the tower.

The goblins launched javelins, then tried to come up the stairs. Their efforts did not go well and they found the group's reach weapons more than they could handle and most of the goblins were cut down before they made it to the second floor.

Meanwhile, Ropp attacked their apparent leader from surprise and Arric tried to kill two more zombies that were guarding her. The battle was tough and the creature turned out to be a hag who made them sick, blind, and unlucky. Eventually, the tide turned and the group defeated her.

In the morning they returned to town carrying a note they have found which read "Get the silver brother.".

On the road to town they found what Dragan believed was an Ankheg burrow in the middle of the road. After some investigation, they determined the creature wasn't in the hole and, working with some local farmers, they filled the hole and repaired the road.

Returning to town, they discovered that Arric's building was behind schedule because the supplies had been stolen by the town's children. Some investigation revealed that a beautiful woman had told the children it was okay if they took the lumber; they had used it to build a fort. A few days later, most of the lumber was returned.

Meanwhile, some blighted trees were reported on two farms outside of town. While investigating, the group was attacked by and ultimately defeated an ankheg.

Between the hag at the tower and events in town, the group become convinced they might be dealing with a coven of hags.
