Laszh’s player was out sick but today marked the first appearance of Eli the Yuan’ti Wizard and Pico the kobold Assassin. I reiterated a bit of exposition about what they’re characters lives have probably been like up until now. Underground dragon ruled police state with frequent purges and spies looking to root out Far Realm cultists. One of the PCs is from such a cabal of mad summoners and the other PC was exiled for using forbidden magical techniques.
The delvers were presented with magical potions of regeneration, as gifts from Razecorex the Green Witch. They were told to take Raxacoriko, her daughter, with them to the surface. Mistress Razecorex instructed them to investigate any rumors of the Divine, and see if they can find out what happened to Io the Silent God, in the past 100 years.
They have also been instructed to find a suitable site for a surface colony. The essential supplies needed by their underground city are running dangerously low.
The PCs attended a bonding ritual where they were telepathically linked to their riding lizards, and they were given 40 days worth of supplies each, assigned some kobold attendants, and loaded everything into rafts made from mushroom people for their journey to the surface.
More on that later.
