Bounty: The Fell Hounds of Horasym

Post by devilpants » Fri Mar 09, 2018 10:13 pm

A notice from the Government of Drache has been posted, part warning and part bounty.

The late Lord Anatole Horasym, an alchemist of some renown, has been found dead and his estate destroyed by his own creations. These creatures, seven alchemically-enhanced dogs and wolves, have escaped from his estate and are now roving the countryside, possibly in groups. All travelers are advised to travel in numbers and hire armed escorts. Patrols along the highways have been increased.

The bounty for each dog is 5,000 crown with proof of kill (preferably the head). This amount is non-negotiable.

Nothing is known about the hounds except that they have been enhanced with alchemy. Evidence at the Horasym Estate indicates heightened strength and possible powers of petrification, disintegration, fire, and some sort of mental or fear-based magic. The names of each dog provides a hint to their powers: Bloody Dark, D̶a̶g̶g̶e̶r̶ ̶H̶i̶d̶e̶, D̶e̶a̶t̶h̶ ̶F̶a̶n̶g̶, Gazer, Laugher, Many Maws, and Thunder Howl.

(This is a quest that will be divided up into several sessions over the next several months, with no set schedule. Participation in one hunt does not guarantee a spot in another. A hunt will be announced several days (usually at least a week) in advance.)

I would like to reserve a spot for this! Preferably for Ravel as she is combat-capable, but I would be happy to use another character in the end if it would have better synergy with the final group for this scene.

Ravel - glass-cannon combat style, healer, but to replace lost limbs/tissue she needs to do an equivalent exchange sorta thing with a nearby other person and/or corpse.

Lydia - gnome action archaeologist, has high lore, can identify/disarm traps (probably not useful here), might be able to help out with random tidbits of knowledge of these hounds showing up in other random dead cultures elsewhere. also: hearth magic. She can enchant a stick to 'beat dust out of the rug' and say the hound is a rug, and similar >.>

Phel - phel is the demons! the tiefling. She might also be helpful as she raises and breeds animals of all stripes and shapes, though never anything sentient. She could probably have knowledge of how to directly work with any creature mundane or magical, she's been at this for a while. iron stomach. terrible people skills.

Ware ul-Broxobain Severn, Lord Ravendusk, Knight of the Watchful Eye, will personally see to as many of the hounds as my schedule allows. He is a frontline knight with powerful ancestral armor and weapons. He's also experienced at hunting evil aberrations.

The first session of the Fell Hounds of Horasym will take place on Thursday, March 22, and will likely start sometime between 6-7 PM Mountain time (8-9 PM Eastern time). Reports of Hound activity will be posted 1-2 days before the day of the session.

I'm looking for 3-6 players, but no more than that.

The Hound named Dagger Hide has been slain by Ware Severn, Ravel, and Llaruna. They delivered the dog's entire body and received the 5,000 crown bounty. Further updates will be posted.

Javakh walks up to the board, writes his name in bold all caps in a font about as large as the title of the notice board, headbutts it, and goes home.

Though I already participated in one, I didn't have an account on the forums to reserve my spot for the quest. So belatedly, I would like to reserve a spot for either Lliirune or Llaruna at the hunts, depending on which is available at the time.

The village of Limmolgi, two hours northwest of Drache, has sent out a request for aid. A huge dog, easily the size of a large wolf, was sighted recently, and soon people began to go missing. This turned into reports of people being attacked and dragged away by the dog. People killed by the dog soon began rising as zombies.

(The next session will be Thursday, March 29th, starting between 6 and 7 PM Mountain time.)

Belekhmaa is up for the challenge, should there be space. She is strong, for she is Provakhi.

The hound Death Fang has been slain by Javakh, Belekhmaa, Ravel, and Lliirune. The villagers of Limmolgi have returned to their homes.
