Pathfinder: The Red Crusade

"The Five-Fingered Hand"

Episode 2

The inauguration feast of the Heaven’s Devils guild ends abruptly when an assassin tries to poison Lord Felsteel during his toast. The would-be assassin is caught by the guild and questioned. He has been hired by a group calling themselves the Order of the Five-Fingered Hand. At the behest of Felsteel’s personal companion, a cleric by the name of Fulgor, HD sets out to find the OFFHand’s abbey and potentially an antidote to the deadly poison.

The party travels south through Blackwood Forest and into the foothills of the South Mountains. There they find an isolated compound deep in the trees. Though it was only occupied by a handful of OFFHand agents they left the victorious party member bloody and broken. Once again, Briandh felled the final boss with an arrow to the eye. Fortunately there was no loss of life within the party.

The antidote to save Lord Felsteel was obtained easily once they took control of the abbey. Cleric Fulgor revived Brother Longhammer and went with him back to Brewhaven. Flying safely above the trees they could get back faster than the others could, mounted or on foot. All was set right in short order upon their return.

Well Done!

Comments

As a final gift for saving Felsteel’s life we were not taxed for this adventure.

The coin is divided among the 5 party members that participated. Aurelius slept through the whole thing, Sawa is a companion, and Fulgor is an NPC and thus do not receive shares.

*Rad claims the following: *

  • 6p – 65g – 642s – 6440c
  • Bottle of Rattlesnake Rum
  • Suggests a Shrine of Light as the new room for the Guild Hall. This room would give both Rad and Magnus the ability to cure diseases, perform advanced healing, and even perform Resurrection (1/day/caster).
