Plunder Cats, HO!

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.

Our story continues.....

All players were shanghaied by pirates on awoke on the Wormwood. Under your cruel captain, you slaved away and eventually attacked another pirate ship. As you executed most of the crew, your crew had to be split into two different groups. One group took the new ship called “A Man’s Promise” and set sail. However, you encountered a store that damaged the ship and blew you onto an island. Here you staged a mutiny and took over the ship.
The players then proceeded to take the ship to Rickety Squibs to get the ship “squibed” and rechristened the ship “Plundercats.” While at Rickety, you heard tales of “The Rock” a point of land overlooking the shipping lanes and if you could crack the rock good fortune would follow your ship. At the rock you meet Lady Agasta Smythee, the current lady of the rock. Lady Smythee agreed to marry one of the crew if you became sufficiently known. After several acts of piracy, Toof became Lord of the Rock. This was followed by several attacks on the rock. Your group repelled the boarders and went on the offensive. You hunted down the group of sea people and destroyed most of the populace spairing only the old and young.
Become well known enough, you moved on to Port Peril and now have become valid pirates in your own right…..but the story continues….

Ambushed on a reef by Valcara and her minions using a magic rope trick. Druid’s eagles and Alyndra took out a bunch of bad guys, then beeyotch went invisible and made us afraid. Then Captain Butterbeard made them afraid. Everyone but the Cap’n and the ranger abandoned ship, then Alyndra picked off the bad guys, including the bad captain, who were trying to swim away. Using the “Carve ’em up” spell, we are going to find out where their cool stuff is.

Under the water we found the Lady Sting ship (Brothel’s boat) shipwrecked. Still looking for the Brine Banshee and the Golden Vespil. Or the Golem Vespa. One or the other.

Returning to the brothel, the lady tells us to visit a scrimshander named Jaymiss Kref at Drenchport.
She also says that Heilenus Finch on Orlo Island will know more about where we can find the Brine Banshee.

Orlo Island
Unhappy place – Finch’s surgical office
Finch tells us he has this tibia from Vargus Black – an officer aboard the Brine Banshee. If we can get the Ring of the Iron Skull, we can track down the rest of Black’s body. Milksop Morton, a pirate, currently has the ring. His sloop, the Dryad’s Grave, usually is between Smoker and Shark Island, but next week he will be here. If we can accost the ship before it gets in port, we can get the ring.

Our first Online Adventure

Our first online game with Willy.

Game started as the players went back to The Hanelilius Fintch at the Brine Banshee. The players went back to meet with Dindreann. After navigating several different obstacles you went to Elliece Farhaven’s house boat. IN the house boat, the party was attacked by an imp. Farhaven was not to be found, but the PC’s found a message in a bottle and Toof found it was covered in invisible ink. The letter directed Farhaven to go to Hell arbor and to Roweena Kellet’s warehouse.
At this point the characters decided to leave the adventure and asked Dindreann for directions. She agreed if the PC’s stole an magical flagon made from a horn of a copper dragon. the PC’s agreed and store the horn making enemies with the Church of cayden cailean.
Returning to Dindreann, she directed you to Jasperleaf Apothecary in Port Paril.

The players went to Port Peril and Jasperleaf Apothecary. The characters learned of a secret phrase and promptly decided not to use it. The characters snuck in at night and then awoke the guards. When confronted, the character bluffed the guards by using the password. When the guards went to get their leader, the characters sent monkies after the guards. The leader threw bombs at the part until she was killed by a sneak attack from Butterbeards companion.

Going back up to the first level, you decided to investigate the B12 and the second floor of the building. ON the second floor, you we found a series of traps. While the group was dealing with the traps, you were attacked by Ederleign Baines. After a battle you captured him alive and took him to the ship. From there you went to B6 and found a still working forge with two sets of masterwork artisan’s tools for craft (armor) and craft(weapons).
After the forge, you went to the large tower. At the door of the large tower you fought several phase spiders With the defeat of the phase spiders and their leader, you went to the second floor the lead to the outside and the walls. On the second floor you found several cyclopes statures. You also follow down the stairs to a basement. The basement lead to a large open area connected to an old, malfunctioning teleportation circle and finally to a water filled amphitheater.
Next you went to B11 which is a mess hall. In the mess hall you fought two animated dreams which you dispatched with ease. The mess hall was connected to a kitchen that was mostly destroyed.
From the kitchen, you found an old chapel of Aroden which was infested with more phase spiders. In the chapel you found an old holy symbol of Aroden
After the chapel the PCs moved on to the wall. On the wall, you eventually went to B3 which lead to the first floor. You then went to B5 which was a ruined out building full of crawling giant hands. After the hands, the PCs moved to a ruined storeroom full of rotted goods. Sensing the place was explored the PCs rested for the night back on the ship.

PYT “So we resigned your status as Navy Commander.”

BB “What??!!!”

PYT “And they withheld your stipend.”

The next morning -——-

His trusted Lt. hands the Captain his standard 5 lb bacon breakfast sandwich

LTD: Ummm boss… ummm…
I think you may need a new alias….

The goblin pulls a mirror in front of the Captain.

BB What!!!
BB: Why is my hair black
!!!
First I lose my long lost birthright title,
then all my free spending money,
and now my luxurious golden locks and beard

BB: Give me that hat of disguise…
our crew cannot see me without trademark flowing hair.

PYT “Ummmm…. Sure sir.. whatever u say…”
LTD “Not helping”

BB I need a drink!!!.

The nervous goblin brings over a tankard of pink lemonade and a straw.

BB What??!!!.

~~ Act 2 – The new path begins -———

* Interlude ***_

Somewhere off the shore of Island of empty eyes, a pair of odd sojourners in a battered rowboat inch closer to the rocky shoreline with the fabled Plunder Cats vessel a ways off to the port side.

LY “hurlllghggpphphggp”
Beek “I still don’t understand why u want to be a pirate when u get seasick”
LY “I like the scenery and the ladies love a good dresser”
LY “hurlllghggpphphggp”
Beek “Why again are we going toward shore and not the ship?”
LY “Lady Bess gave me a sign to follow”
““hurlllghggpphphggp”
“And I need some land under my feet.”
“hurlllghggpphphggp”
Beek “Hopefully better than the last sign, I’m going to miss the Duke and the Count”
LY “hurlllghggpphphggp”
Beek “At least the Count undressed before swimming and I bet the Duke gave it indigestion. Imagine to have all but us swallowed whole by the dragon turtle… I guess that was a little luck”

The Tengu glances at the twine net and bamboo pole.

Beek “Good thing we were fishing in this boat at the time”
LY “hurlllghggpphphggp”

As the craft slowly settles onto the pebbled beach the odd pair sees another odd pair looking back at them…. One skipping rocks while the other scribbling in the sand…

LY “See. It was destiny… the lady smiles on us again”

An eerie calming of the wind and a moment of stillness surrounds the fated meeting.
divine prophecy is at hand…..

CD3 “eeeeek?”
DofE5 “squawwwk?”
Beek “you must be joking….”
LY ”hurlllghggpphphggp”

~ Final Act –—————————*

**
The aftermath of the Beach-head-teleportation-circle-not-so-surprise-Attack~

BB “I love it when a plan comes together”
“Lemonade”

The tiny raptor familiar brings the captain his mug, folding chair and foot stool.

Toof “Toof like being tall – Toof get to smash more”
Thay “It’s ok Rapey… the bad rocks won’t hurt u anymore”
Gala “~~Iori…. Aroden… Irori … Aroden~~"
LTD “I feel kinda like…. I died…. about 5 times”

A parchment suddenly appears on the Lt.’s lap. The goblin closes his eyes for a moment and unravels the scroll. He then sighs as he formally walks over to the Captain.

LTD “Sir it has been an honor” …

He salutes causing more dust, debris and rubble to fall off his gear.

LTD “As I was an officer in the Latvarian Air Force I must return to the Empire.”
“Your new cohort has just sent word that he has arrived.”
“But before I relay his message I have a parting gift”

The Lt. presents his former Captain with an intricate woven leather & metal fan. Along with the design plans for the future Plunder Cats Amusement Park with no height restrictions.

LTD “Every strategist needs a Minkai Minata Warfan.”
BB “Thank you Lieutenant”
“Your services and advice have been thoroughly appreciated.”
LTD “Your new cohort will have a similar item as well”
BB: “I guess I can cool myself off while drinking”
LTD “Just don’t think of anything too sharp at the time”

The fan folds and then stretches to the shape of a gruesome dagger.

Toof “coooooool”
LTD “In its natural state it will also hold your pants up.”
BB: “???”

The dagger suddenly vanishes and a sturdy belt with a tankard buckle appears around the Captain’s waist.

Thay: “Hmmmm…. a little crude but not too bad for a fashion statement, the men should like it”
BB “???”
LTD “Ahem. Now back to the message…”

The Lt. unfurls the newly arrived scroll further…

LTD “Lord Yzerman regretfully informs you that he is still recovering from his journey. However in his place has sent his new trusted valet to assist you. He was thoroughly glad to find out that you are already acquainted”
BB “already acquainted….?”
LTD “…. and is sure you will get along splendidly”
“You may refer to him formally as Count Dooku III”
BB: “wha……Count who?”
LTD “Or you may call him by his informal name of….”
__**
~~BAMPF~~~~

The teleportation circle flashes to reveal the trusted Alendra and a tiny figure dressed in flamboyant clothing complete with a miniature rapier, feathered tricorn, and wooden sidearm…

Toof “Hi Hooty Who”
Thay “Why is she laughing??”

The Druid then smiles an evil grin as he recognizes the tiny figure…
The Lt. looks up for a moment and then back to the parchment.

Gala “…Irori.. Aroden… Irori… Aroden…”
LTD “Hmmm…that must be The Count next to her…”
“oh yes…” ahem”..
“You may also call him by his informal name of”

The peculiar creature in dazzling attire turns to face its new comrades….
…and then makes an erratic mad dash toward the group…
__
BB “WHAT?????!!!!!!!

…and then launches towards the captains face….

CD3 “EEEEEEEEKKKK!!!!!!
LTD “Monkey”

Our tale ends but the Captain will try to continue…
