Gathering Information All Around Town
First Visit: Jeorgio, the Weaponsmith
Some items stolen, and some horribly-crafted equipment purchased from the big, bulking, brute of a man. This lead to nothing — nothing but the five-finger discount by none other than Aviiiiiii.
Second Visit: Om The Freaky
This trip did not amount to much but numenera identification, and vague, cryptic words — and a pleasure device…
The Fortune Teller
A large, round hut. A small, round pool, and a glowing bubble that was more than it seemed. The characters saw a vision of a large, stinging insect inside. But who was it stinging? Some questions still remain unanswered.
Perhaps luck, it seems the fortune teller has heard of this ‘Impossible Sword’ the characters are looking for. She gives them a name, and location, of a man she thinks will know much more information.
On Their Way
Days of travel, uneventful, through the wastelands. Not much signs of plant or animal life. That is, until their unexpected encounter on the third night.
This would not be much worry, were it not for their sheer numbers, and the lack of good metal weapons; one even breaking inside one of the creatures. Though, even with all this, they were eventually disposed of, and turned into delicious food — Franklin taking the unwanted parts.
Coming upon their destination appears to be a makeshift hut — made with materials you do not wish to know. This man is protected, it seems, by some creatures, seemingly a pet.
He eventually notices them, and invites them in for swamp-flavoured tea, a rare delicacy in these parts. Keeping his calm, and his body language in check, he tells that characters to, “Get me out of here.” His form does not change at all.
A surprise attack from our characters takes these creatures off guard, and with enough time, it takes this hut off ground.
Stab Slice Whoosh Thwack
Those are the sounds of friendly fire, to which there was plenty of. It is even hard to determine who was on whose side.
Thump Boom Crash
The sounds of this poor man’s hut being demolished, and eventually collapsing to the ground. The creatures died soon after, however. Given some new numenera, and a location to check out: The Tomb of Queen Starloscet and to head to the Barrow Town to pick up additional information.
And the journey heads to Barrow Town…
