Hook Mountain Massacre part !

A meeting at the tavern…

Image

It is a busy night…

Image

Image

Image

Image

A private room with the mayor and his guard…

Image

The quest:  Investigate Fort Rannick…stop by Turtleback Ferry on your way.

ImageWhile on the bridge an animal cries out…

Image

It is a wounded firepelt.  It is rescued from a trap just before it’s hunter shows up…a hideous ogrekin by the name of Ruckus Graul.  He isn’t about to let his dinner spoil…a fight ensues and the heroes kill the ogrekin.  They follow the firepelt to a farm.

Image

I have a bad feeling about this…

Image

Image

A confrontation with a tumerous ogrekin triggers a large battle as he calls for aid from his brothers in the nearby barn…the heroes vanquish these foes but at a great cost…

Image

Henric fought bravely but in the end he succumbed to his injuries…the heroes press on eager to make these inbred ogrekin pay…

Image

Image

In the barn they discover a large ogre spider.  They distract it with some chickens.  The back of the barn houses a makeshift prison cell.  Inside they find what is left of the black arrows.  They are shackled to the wall with large chains that locked around their necks.  The key is in the house…

Image

Image

Image

To the house…

Image

Among the pumpkins on the porch lay human remains and a skeletal totem…

Image

Dinner is served…

Image

The heroes explore the first floor of the large farmhouse…

Image

The rogue discovers a trap that if triggered drops all who are seated into a pit below…they avoid it.

Image

The heroes discover a macabre playpen with two grown but particularly slow ogrekin.  They are playing with dolls made from human hair and bone.  They attack the heroes but once again fall before their might…a stairway leads to the second floor….

Image

“Boys…entertain our guests while Mammy makes herself purty!”

The large corpulent necromancer magically prepares herself for battle while her three undead sons hungrily attack the heroes.  They quickly dispatch with the animated corpses…

Image

“Ma’ Boys!  You killed my darling boys!”

Image

Furious Mammy launches a magical attack at them, draining their life while invigorating her own.  Near defeat she casts “dimension door” and transports herself to join her husband and sons in the basement…

Image

The magic user states that she couldn’t have gone far…They search the grounds and find an entrance into a cellar.  Inside they fight Husker Graul and his pet donkey rats.  Finishing him off they barge into the final room and find a horrible monstrous plant…

Image

In the corner is none other than Mammy Graul…the key to the shackles now visibly hanging around her neck.  The fight was deadly but the heroes survived.  They free the prisoners, gather the body of their fallen comrade Henric, and flee into the deep forest before any other Graul family members decide to visit their kin.
