Finally some time to post an update (and a large one at that).
Amidst the troubles which currently plague the Sword Coast, a group of heroes emerges from the seemingly peaceful fortress of Candlekeep. These people, strangers to each other and everyone else, are known as The Gilded Rose
These people are led by the fearless woman only known as The All Seing Eye
. She is a devout follower of Helm and oversees the group's actions.
Her Right Hand is only known by his actions and behavior; Mad Man
. A dwarf of immense strength and constitution. He has a knack for swinging large swords and dismembering his foes.
Her Left Hand is rumored to have been fathered by the dreaded Lord of Murder, Bhaal.
An elf known by the name of Quin
, she excels in every field; fighting, magics and thievery, Quin
does it all. This is speculated to be amplified by the divine blood which flows in her veins.The Gilded Rose Part 1 - Heading Out.
The group quickly gathered their belongings and headed out of the fortress of Candlekeep in search of the troubles which currently plague the Sword Coast. They make a quick stop in Beregost and are approached by a gnome identified as Tiax
. Mad Man
takes a liking to Tiax and The All Seing Eye
agrees to Tiax
's membership of The Gilded Rose. They head east past the temple to the lands of the basilisks. Here they befriend a ghoul known as Korax.Tiax
shows his prowess by using his magics to summon a ghast to aid them in their fight. They proceed with caution and are ambushed by a gnome known as Mutamin
and his basilisks.Mutamin
gets caught in a captive trance and joins his soon to be dead basilisks in the land of the dead. The group felt wiser from the battle and used the time to contemplate their actions.
The Gilded Rose then headed south, all the way down to Amn and encountered a duo of bandits. The group defended themselves against the duo's attack which was aided by a rowing band of kobolds. Ma
was heard laughing as he dismembered every single one of the kobold band.
Another group of bandits ambushed The Gilded Rose as they were travelling. They proved to be tougher than most bandits, but their prowess were no match for The All Seing Eye
's magics and Quin
's superior archery. Mad Man
finished the rest off.
The group headed west from here own and met a siren called Shoal. She attacked the group and killed off The All Seing Eye
in one quick kiss. Mad Man
promptly showed her his affection by burying his two-handed sword into her flesh. Shoal surrendered and explained she had been imprisoned by an ogre-mage named Droth. In return for defeating Droth, she would resurrect The All Seing Eye
. The group agreed and fought Droth.
Droth was quickly felled and Shoal was free. However, the summoned ghast went after Shoal upon seeing her delicious flesh. The Gilded Rose chose not to interfere as she had not helped during the battle.
After the battle, the group went south and were ambushed by a large number of ogres. They ogres were no match for Mad Man
's onslaught. The group continued further south and encountered a man known as Basillus. He promptly attacked The Gilded Rose and they responded in kind. Sadly for Basilus, The All Seing Eye
's god proved to be greater than his.
(Where is your God now?!
Lastly, the Gilded Rose headed to the coast to find a treasure rumored to contain powerful artifacts. They were assaulted by Sirens, but Mad Man
disposed of them easily, their charms no match for his madness. Inside the cave, Flesh Golems were abound and proved to be quite a foe. Luckily, the combined might of The Gilded Rose bested even the toughest of these adversaries and the treasure was theirs for the taking. Amongst loot was a powerful tome
which was given to Mad Man
as his share of the loot. How he managed to stay focused to read the book no one knows. Suffice to say, he never seemed to tire from there on. Next Up - A trip to Nashkel Mines, Ulcaster and Bandit Camp.
