The Seekers of the Fell take on the Tomb of Horrors

Our first dark and deadly encounter

The seekers get their first taste of what the fey has to offer

After waking from a drunken stupor and rousing my friends we quickly set about gathering our belongings for what may be our final voyage. 2 parties of the village’s strongest hunters have ventured into the fey to see what has been causing all the new beast attacks along the roads but to no avail as we never heard from them again. We set off around half 8 and after being on the road for 2 hours we saw a small clearing and immediately felt the trouble brewing in the air. we hurried to what appeared to be a wagon but now it resembled firewood more than anything else. as we surveyed the scene Heil heard the cries of a dying man on the other side of the wagon. I looked over his wounds and concluded with the help of Lord Magstine that he was beyond our help. He claimed that his legs were blown off in the beginning of the attack. and after that the beasts ate his comrades. they moved as if being commanded from far away but with military precision. i played a soft lullaby that i had learned as a child as his eyes rolled back and he departed this plane. just as i stopped we heard a rustling in the bushes. As we readied ourselves a unicorn and 3 hideous displacer beasts (Shakers as my mother always called them) came from the direction of the fey but they were different from others i have seen. They were covered in what looked like a black spot about 1 foot wide all over their bodies. we tried to get in position but they quickly surrounded us and started hitting us from every side. my comrades and i fought valiantly but over half our attacks wen straight through them as if they weren’t even there. I am still impressed at the speed and fluidity of my monk friend Dorn as he weaved through the attacking creatures smashing them all as he moved in between them. I will never forget what happened next, Lord Magstine decapitated the unicorn after a few seconds and i watched as blood and bone spilled out. Just as the head was about to hit the ground it stopped and rose back up and placed itself upon the neck of the unicorn again. If not for the encouragement I gained from watching Lord Magstine fight I don’t know that if we would have gone on. The unicorn body moved as if it was a marionette in a puppet show and attacked once more before falling limp to the ground. Shortly thereafter it was joined by 3 very bloody displacer beasts. I am always amazed at Lord Magstine’s battle presence as he smashed one of the beasts so hard it died instantly as its body convulsed and all but exploded from one hit at the hands of Lord Battleheart We were definitely not renewed but we were back in good spirits after a short rest. after cleaning our weapons and armor we started to make our way into the Fey….
