Putting Bad Luck to Rest!
« on: November 23, 2019, 10:39:22 PM »
Essembran rumour has it that Taeryl Ravenstone, the Doommaiden well known in the region, recently had a meeting at the Guild of Alchemists and left in high spirits indeed. She hired fresh horses and a small wagon, commissioned a large box from the local carpenter, and took off toward the south with them. Who knows what she is about? But the residents are always glad if she departs happy - it means she won't be sending any bad luck their way for now.

Gossip from the guild suggests that Clandery, the warrioress Shea, elves Lyssariel and Ivos, the dwarf Shug, and the druid Torgrim were hired by the Doommaiden to rescue something valuable from the depths of the northern forest. The words "rotting road" and "cultists" were whispered in hushed tones, and someone even suggested they brought back a body for the priest? Why would she be so happy about a body? ... well, it would explain the coffin-like box, for sure.

No matter what, it seems that Clandery and his band have done something to make the white-haired woman happy, so gossips are inclined to buy these fellows a drink at the local watering holes... until someone stubs their toe and declares Beshaba's favour over.
Her skin is pale, her eyes are red,
Her leaden voice commands the dead,
To rise and stand beside their dreadful queen.
No mortal power escapes her thrall,
Her hunger will consume us all,
And even now I hear her call: Jolene
