The Thirteenth Throne

IGOR'S DIARY #5

DEAR DIARY,

A LOT HAS HAPPENED. IGOR AND FRIENDS HAVE LEFT THE CITY. QUEEN ILIOSA HAS GONE MAD UNDER THE POWER OF HER CURSED CROWN MADE FROM THE TEETH OF AN ANCIENT AND EVIL DRAGON. A FEW OF OUR ALLIES HAVE CHOSEN TO STAY BEHIND AND FORM A RESISTANCE:

  • KOMMANDANT KROFT
  • SAFFI STONEGUARD
  • ISHANI DHATRI
  • TAYCE AND GRAU SOLDADO.

IGOR HOPES THEY ARE WELL.

WITH A SHIP WE TOOK A SMALL NUMBER TO THE CITY OF HARSE. THESE NUMBERS INCLUDE:

  • LIAM AND THE LITTLE FISH
  • YURI & IVAN (KROFT’S ATTENDANTS)
  • LIL GRIGOR (THE NOBLE SON)
  • VENDRA LOGGARI (THE PERFUMIER)
  • RUAN MIROKOVA (THE FLAUTIST)
  • SALVATOR SCREAM (THE PAINTER)
  • VENCARLO (THE DUELIST)
  • LORI VOSS

DUAYNE KORMICK, NOW REVEALED TO BE AN OCCULTIST OF SOME SORT, IS HEADED SOUTH TO KORVIS. WE NEED TO SPEAK WITH THE SHOANTI TRIBE TO GAIN MORE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE QUEEN’S NEWFOUND POWERS, SO WE ACCOMPANY DUAYNE DOWN THE RIVER. IT IS A FEW WEEKS’ TREK SOUTH AND EAST TO THE DESERT WHERE WE COME UPON THE SHOANTI TRIBES.

THE LOREKEEPERS OF THE SHOANTI BELONG TO A PARTICULARLY HOSTILE TRIBETHE SKLAR-QUAH. WE LEARN THAT TO GAIN AUDIENCE, WE MUST PROVE OURSELVES. OUR FIRST TASK WAS TO GAIN THE ENDORSEMENT OF THE TRUTHSPEAKER. WE BEGIN DOING SO BY DEFEATING A HYDRA WHICH HAD NESTED INSIDE A TEMPLE. HE ACCOMPANIES US TO OUR NEXT TASK TO OBSERVE OUR STRENGTH AND ENSURE OUR LEGITIMACY.

NEXT WE SEEK THE THRALLKEEPER’S MARK. THE MARK IS APPARENTLY DIFFICULT TO OBTAIN AND SEALED INSIDE AN OMINOUS LOOKING CAVE. WE NARROWLY ESCAPE THE CLUTCHES OF THE DUNGEON’S TENTACLES AND A FEW MAGE-HUNTERS AFTER OBTAINING THE MARK FROM A STRANGE GLOBE WITH MAGICAL PROPERTIES.

LASTLY, WE DECIDE TO APPROACH THE SKLAR-QUAH. TO GAIN AUDIENCE WITH THE LOREKEEPER, WE MUST COMPLETE THEIR TRIAL OF THE TOTEM. IT INVOLVES MOVING FOUR TOTEMS OVER THE COURSE OF A FEW DAYS TO THE TOP OF A PLATEAU. WE ARE LUCKY THAT WE OBTAINED SOME MAGICAL INSTRUMENTS FROM THE THRALLKEEPER’S CAVE WHICH PRODUCE LIMITLESS FOOD AND WATER. WE WERE NOT SO LUCKY TO ENCOUNTER A FEW BULETTES WHILE SURMOUNTING THE PLATEAU. THE BULETTES WERE, OF COURSE, NO MATCH FOR IGOR WHO AT THE BRINK OF DEATH WAS STRUCK BY LIGHTNING AND REVITALIZED WITH NEW POWER – A SWORD PLACED IN IGOR’S HANDS SHOWING THAT THE HIGH DRUID’S CURSE HAD BEEN LIFTED.
