On her heels comes a large black hound that surprised Alwin as it materializes out of the darkness… one the hound is killed the frightened girl named Freada tales the following tale… (in French as translated by Castiel).

Two days ago, Bar Le Duc was attacked by creatures of the night. Father and several other men took up their staffs and clubs to fight off the creatures, after a pitched battle, he returned bloodied, battered and broken directing me to flee at first chance when they made a last ditch effort against the creatures. I refused and father hid me in the cellar after I promised to keep safe. I can’t describe the horrible sounds I heard that night, the silence afterward was even more frightening. I will have nightmares for the rest of my life… I got no sleep that night, and crept from my hiding place when sunlight crept it’s way in. The imagined horrors of the night before were surpassed by what I saw that morning when I crept out of hiding… everyone in the town was dead, bodies were hung from trees, with their innards splayed out on the grown before them, evil signs were drawn on the ground with their blood and innards… I saw my father’s body there with the others, crying silent tears, I fled into the early morning to find some safety.

That howling sound is one of the sounds I heard two nights ago as my family and friends were killed. I have been running since sunset when I first heard the noise and it has gotten closer, and closer, and closer… I am so afraid. Can you protect me?

Bar Le Duc (Meuse) – County Town of Meuse, Bar-le-Duc is situated in greenery about 200 miles from Paris and is twinned with the towns of Griesheim and Gyönk.

The town is a town of lepers that kept an age old tradition of making some of the finest wine in France. The Bar Le Duc label garners a +25% increase in price on a bottle of wine. The leper colony has a single chapel to the … once a year, one cursed leper is healed based on their demonstration of dedication to the church and a random lottery.

Lord Merovech Dubois servant of the Maker was a vigilant warrior that patrolled the lands surrounding Bar Le Duc and fell in love with Mary AnneBenoit. Lord Dubois and a score of faithful warriors patrolled the borders, each with a trust worthy war hound and horse.

For years Lord Dubois petitioned the Church to heal Mary Anne of her affliction but each year his plea was not fulfilled. Last fall, Mary Anne died from her illness and Lord Dubois rose from her death bed, slayed the local priest and fled into the night. Over the last year it has become increasingly more dangerous to travel at night and some of the farm animals have come up missing.

When the adventurers return to Bar Le Duc they find a hill giants and a band of Bug Bears. They each wear an iron mask painted white and wield cold iron weapons.

The group heads on to Griesheim to find it in flames with giants and bug bears in the streets. The group decides to not engage in battle but instead head to Gyönk to warn the towns people of what they think is an impending attack….

  • Human skull, well preserved and covered with symbols of chaos and other arcane runes

Richard shares that his fee is 8 silver per day and it will take him one to two weeks to search for the owners of the House of the Setting Sun. Additionally the paperwork for the sale would be 5-10 gold depending on the complexity of the transaction. He drafts up a contract for the ownership search with Alwin and Alwin pays for 14 days of work. Additionally, Richard notes that his fee would be 1% of the price of the property sale.

Inali spends her day at the University of London talking to students and trying to subtly learn about any notorius teachers or students that could help to dispell the magic at the House of the Setting Sun. The group believes that because of the brothel’s history a shady character would be best used for this. Inali learns about a woman named Yve that was expelled from the school just last year for dablling in forbidden arcana. The general concensus was that Yve still lives in London.

Visit the Red Shield and get an assignment to do guard duty at the mass services on Sunday.

  • The glass jar, with the yellow liquid inside. Jacob confirms that it is a creature that has been polymorphed into the jar. The liquid is urine.
  • Arcane book that drained Vegas Haines’s mental facilities. Is cursed and should be destroyed.

Castiel asks Jacob about the creation. Jacob shares that the creature is missing a power source and that he would need a large gem and harness the energy of an air, fire or lightening elemental.

Jacob dons a set of goggles, leather apron, and thick leather gloves to transform the jar. He raps a tuning fork on the side of a table and uses it to shatter the glass. The glass shards twirl in the air , expand and transform into the crouched form of a handsome naked man with dark long hair and golden skin. He asks Jacob, “How may I serve you? What do you wish?” He pauses and then continues, “To bring life to this machine?”…
