Session 19-1

Towards home

After putting a fair distance between you and the Black Mountain you hunkered down to rest and get your energies back. All the time Derek were pacing erratic, doubting the path he is walking when Rivfader, the killing of his beloved Robin, still is feasting and gathering his horde. Emerging after your secluded rest you noticed many tracks outside of your camp, but just passing by. Climbing higher up into the mountains you found yourself at what you realized was a frozen over lake. Crossing it , and it's much easier going, you were beset by ice worms, Remoraz, that decided you were a perfect meal. After slaying them with the ice cracking under your feet you left the lake for safer and more solid ground. Utilizing her powers, Zarrah polymorphed into an Eagle to scout the surrounding area. With snow and mountain as far as her eagle eyes could see the lone figure far into the distance stood out.

Session 19-2

A turn for the worse

Over ridge and along slopes your path took you. One night as you neared the spine of the mountains Derek was beset by horrible night terrors. And a few days later a storm came upon you forcing you to seek proper shelter. With keen eyes you spotted what appeared to be a small cavern but as you entered it you came to the realization that it continued further in than you realized. Exploring it you came to a large room built by hands long dead and as you cleared some passages the dead itself came upon you. Giant horned skeletons, skeletons with a burning hatred for the living in their undead eyes and skeletons in ancient armour not carried by any armies today. Removing "un" from undead you were stuck with a conundrum, go after them and what caused them to rise or leave as soon as the storm subsided.

Session 19-3

Anger and furor

Taking a quick trip to the camp Willy found Derek once again in night terrors, but much worse than before and before his eyes Derek started sprouting hair and horns growing on his forehead. Subduing the now more beast than man long enough for Anton to come it was brought outside. Seeing a figure approaching in the storm, and not knowing who or what it was, Anton took the safe option and put Derek down. Once it come closer it lamented Anton's rash action as it told those gathered Derek was just a man who in his inner conflicts had a spiritual split and the part of him that wanted immediate bloody revenge won. That split and his rejection of part of him turned him into that beast. The figure, presenting herself as a Jámit Johtalit or a spirit walker of the Lampi peoples, also told you that it could perhaps have been undone but the time for that path were gone.
