Campaign Diary: Strange Aeons – Session One, Part One
The quakes they experienced in the dream seemed to be real, as parts of the room lied in ruins, and with the all the dust in the air, the collapse must have been recent.
A foul stench was coming from a closed door, and Torashtai decided that he will be the one to check it out. After carefully opening the door, he noticed a pile of corpses in one corner of the room, which seemed to be dropped down a laundry shoot of some kind. The sight was to much for the Kalashtar, and all he could do for a couple of minutes is just crouch in a corner. Gaining composure, he called for the Dragonborn, and both of them managed to climb the pile and up the shoot, arriving in a small room with a glass window to the outside it seemed (they did not catch any disease by passing Constitution saves).
They initially thought they we outside this building, but tall walls from all sided changed their mind. They were in the courtyard, with one exit unavailable due to all the rubble. It was raining, but the rain was one moment cold, the other warm, and it was almost changing colors, from transparent, to a muddy brown, and to a sickly yellow.
“Halt! Men, ready your crossbows! It seems we have more shapeshifters here. Prepare to shoot on my mark!”
“Wait, we’re no shapeshifters! We were prisoners, and just killed one of those things on the boiler room downstairs!” Torashtai quickly replied, but he did not convince the human just yet.
“Have you got any proof?” the human in charge of this group asked. “Bring me its head then, slowly. And this albino Lizard-men stays here. Men, do not lower your weapons, they might be deceiving us!”
One eye still fixed on Kenaz, he ordered another guard to go to the other room.
“Winter will know what you are, and what to do with you. I hope your companion returns soon.”
