The Fractured Realms

The storyteller

We find the one called the storyteller, after being teleported to an island. He invites us into his house for a bit of tell tailing. As we enter everything goes black. I awake to see only my brother Mason and our new friend Gnolagat. We are in a small room that’s so dark so we cannot see any walls. As the storyteller’s voice echoes all around us. Telling us that we will participate in his story or consequences will be served. We discover that we are in a unnaturally dark room with a floor or walls. As we search around the room another path appears out of the darkness. There is an echo again saying that everyone congratulates the rogue. I didn’t say anything. The storyteller’s voice again echoes through the area stating that “The priest will regret not congratulating the Gnolagat”. As the echo dies off, 10 skeletons appear around me. With a quick flick and a flash I turn them to dust. We start off again into the darkness searching all along the area for another path.
As we find a few more paths the Gnolagat spots a pile of gold just off of the solid floor about 5 feet in the darkness. He tries to walk to it and falls off the edge. He reappears right behind us as if he fell and landed there. So we now know that jumping off will not lead us out of this dark maze or even to death.
The next room we came across had 4 statues and nothing else in the room.
After figuring out that the statues look like they are pointing to something. We try to turn the statues so that they will all point to the same area. To our surprise they turn rather easy. As soon as the last of the statues are turned the final click is heard two of the statues come to life. After a brief introduction and an awful lot of don’t shot don’t hurt them Mason, Gnolagat and I meet Felix and his daughter Katrina who can’t talk. Off in the distance a target is spotted and the only one that has a ranged weapon other than rocks and a dagger is Felix. As Felix lines the shot up we all wait in anticipation. Twang the arrow is released after what feels like forever Felix says dang I think I actually missed. He starts to line up for the next shot. Right as he is about to let go the first shot hits the target and echo from the storyteller rings out “congratulations” as another path opens up.
Katrina for some reason obviously distrusts Gnolagat. A few minutes later on a path in the darkness that is only 10 feet wide. Gnolagat tries to trip Katrina and then she touches him and he turns to a block of golden ice and is knocked over and shatters. I only caught a glimpse of what happened.
After that the path opened up in to a pool of water. In the pool there was a water elemental laying in ambush. After draining the water we defeated the water elemental. Another task completed and another path way to follow.
The path way starts to wobble and we lose our footing. My brother fell off the edge and disappeared into the darkness. None of us could catch him before he fell. Knowing that falling will not kill you just drop you somewhere else. That’s what I was hoping when he didn’t fall right behind us like Gnolagat did.
After 3 hours of wobbly floor, moving platforms, and almost falling to our deaths we finally arrived in a large room that was stable and solid with a door that was cursed. The Saying was something like “This door is cursed and only by healing it will it open.” After another 2 hours and a few painful attempts we finally got the door open. In the next room I saw my brother crumpled on the floor bleeding through the cracks in his armor. As we entered the room the rune on the floor started to glow and 16 undead appeared and attacked. My brother started to wake up and healed himself so he could help in the battle. After a few turn attempts I realized that they were just too strong inside this desecrated area for my divine powers so we would just have to beat them down the old fashioned way. Somewhere in the fray of combat Katrina fell and the undead curse took over her mind and body.
After subduing Katrina we meet the Storyteller who happened to be a undead litch lord. He after hundreds of years he had seen the light of good again and turned himself to dust. After that the island that was this maze of darkness crumbled and fell into the ocean. Where once again I became separated from my friends and family……
