it could be several days or a week

we go to the police substation in the poorest district to ask after missing people
the sheriff at the station suggests that we speak to Craig Benhill, he is in charge of missing persons
we go grab some food and head back to the station
we speak to Craig Benhill
he says a couple of months ago ~6 months, a series of 6 people disappeared and they were all extrodinary, and they went missing towards the end of the month, the 2 that he has exact dates for were on the 28th, the last was taken 3 months ago
it was 12 people, with 2 missing at the same time
we tell him where we are staying and ask him to contact us if he thinks of anything else
there is a note for me when we get back to the king’s head inn that night
its is probably a note from ‘B’ at the address in the shop district

we dress us in plain travelers clothes and head to the shop
we take all kinds of precautions after seeing a follower
bathazar says he translated the book and asks if i know the kharval
you can get rituals are used to steal the attributes of others at a horrific cost
the book describes how to create the kharval
kharval are a type of goat man that are like a devil and like a construct
they are very resistant to spells and are extrodinarily powerful
their base attributes are very good and are improved upon by the sacrifice
they are humanish with a goat head
the kharval are extrodinarily powerful and will most likely kill us
the kharval could easily defeat a bearded devil with much effort
2 kharval are even more dangerous

middle of night, still talking to balthazar
balthazar says that a greater restoration will do it, but it needs a greater divine focus and he will research it (we should ask the Sinare about this too)
the kharval was probably destroyed when we interuptted the cerimony
the soul is bound to the earth and becomes a tool for the kharval, so it is no longer living but not quite dead
kharval would need silver, good, adamintine weapon

A Missing Lady
Session 1 - 11/22/2014

(as i was writing this, i realized i couldn’t remember your guys PC names…)

1066 NCR Chellosine 1
Peter the Guard Captain informs Gin that she is being sent on a mission while the rest of the guard moves out. He gives Gin a letter of introduction and instructs her to find a couple of people to assist her in looking for the missing daughter of Sir Grant Bellows in Whitecastle.

Gin recruits her paladin friend first, then Eva, who suggests that the monk would be a good addition. The group takes the provided carriage to Whitecastle. They arrive late that evening and stay at the Red Lion Inn in the merchant district. They learn nothing of interest from the inn keeper.

1066 NCR Chellosine 2
They wake up and eat breakfast (amazing biscuits) before setting out to speak to the Sheriff.

From the sheriff:

  • no evidence of foul play
  • she might have ran away from her father
  • her best friend was Cecilia Goldheart (the mayor’s daughter)

The group goes to the home of Sir Grant Bellows and speaks to him and his family. They learned:

  • Jasmine Bellows – went missing between lunch and supper on 1065 Oberine 28th, last seen wearing a purple dress with flowers, 15 years old, an exceptional dancer
  • Sir Grant Bellows – definitely status conscious and very proud
  • Lady Miriam Bellows – Wife of Grant Bellows
  • Brent Bellows – Older brother of Jasmine, 17 years old, very similar to his father in mannerisms and personality
  • Siera Bellows – younger sister of Jasmine, 13 almost 14 years old
  • Fredric – the dance teacher, has lessons almost everyday, runs the theater in town
  • Cecilia Goldheart – best friend of Jasmine
  • Jim the Cleric – performed a divination stating that Jasmine was still alive and foul play was used

The next stop was the mayor’s keep where they spoke to Cecilia Goldheart.

  • Cecilia recognized Jasmine as an acquaintance not a best friend
  • Cecilia sees her about once or twice a month

They then spoke to Fredric the dance teacher

  • He taught Jasmine for free because he considered it a privilege
  • He vaguely remembers that someone else went missing but the name of Rebecca

spoke to Jim the Cleric

  • confirmed that the divination he preformed stated that Jasmine was alive and foul play was used
  • said that a family a month or so back came in to pray for the the return of a missing daughter
  • the family could only spare a single copper, so they were from the poor area

went to an inn on the common side of town, met Joy after asking about missing women

  • Joy – friends with Claire, provided information about a murder, and two other missing people, also directed us towards bill, talked about seeing Kevin’s body and how it was mutilated
  • Claire – mother of Kevin, works as a dishwasher at the red lion inn
  • Kevin – was killed about 4-6 months ago, body was mutilated in a satanic fashion
  • Steven – very strong young man, went missing a month before Rebecca, never found
  • Rebecca – very smart young woman, went missing a month before Jasmine, never found

Returned to Sir Grant Bellows’ Home

  • Craig – wrote a love and apology letter to Jasmine, which she had hidden in her room
  • Siera told us that Jasmine

spoke to Claire at red lion inn

  • Brett – Claire thinks he killed Kevin, troublemaker

1066 NCR Chellosine 3

spoke to paul and phil and bill

  • Bill – the only sheriff deputy that pays attention to the poor side of town
  • Paul -
  • Phil -

went to the mythical malt shoppe where the teenagers hung out
spoke to fred, craig, and renee
confirmed our information

1066 NCR Chellosine 4

traveled out to the canyon
saved a dog and was attacked by wolves
met Bren, a mountain man whose considered the dog matthew to be family
bren owned the land
he found the body of Kevin
also found a stone with a satanic carving on it that was never collected by the sheriff
stone had a moon phase drawn on it that corresponded to tonight
went to the canyon
set up watch from top of canyon as that had a very good view
saw a light about 3-5 miles away between 11:30 and midnight (corresponded to apex of the moon)

1066 NCR Chellosine 5

woke up after keeping watch from canyon all night
spoke to bren
found that light was in land not claimed by bren
warned that spiders in the trees were over in that area
checked in on light that was spotted
found an alter surrounded by blood, the altar itself was clean
overwhelming feeling of creepiness for the area

Pic of the notes since i have not had much of a chance to finish updating this stuff.
