Age of Worms 4e

The Story So Far

A poorly writen, but hopefully informative recap

A group of adventurers recently arrived in Daggerford seeking their fortune in a local cairn known to be picked clean. Inspired by them, The Magically Unnamed Adventuring Group From Daggerford (TMUAGFD) set out out find their fortune in the Whispering Cairn, an ancient tomb that local children used to explore on dares.

Upon entering the tomb, TMUAGFD found a group of kobolds fighting wolves. These kobolds were led by Krom and are part of a tribe displaced by an infection spreading through the Lizard Marshes. After letting these kobolds go on their way, TMUAGFD braved the puzzels, traps, and other dangers of the cairn. As they approached the end of their explorations, they found the ghost of young Alastor Land, who offered to get TMUAGFD past an unopenable door if they buried his bones next to those of his family.

Upon reaching the Land farmstead, TMUAGFD found that Land family plot had recently been dug up. They found evidence that Balabar Smenk’s gang, lead by the Half-Orc Kullen, had something to do with this. After questioning Kullen, the party discovered that a necromancer named Filge had recently arrived in town and had requested the bones. TMUAGFD confonted Filge, putting an end to his nefarious deeds and discovering that he was hired my Smenk to investigate unkillable zombies and green worms. TMUAGFD turned Filge over to the authorities and went to question Smenk.

Balabar Smenk told TMUAGFD that he had been hired by Derwin Ironeater to supply a group of cultists who had taken up residence in a recently unearthed temple in Dourstone’s mine. Smenk gave the party information in exchange for the removal of this cult, which he saw as a threat.

TMUAGFD’s own Lerissa worked as a low level overseer in the mine and, between her knowledge and some clever trickery, the party was able to get into the temple. It was composed of three wings, each housing a different cult. As the party worked their way through the wings, they discovered that the cult was a group known as the Ebon Triad, who were seeking to merge Bane, Bhaal, and Myrkul into one big supergod. As he died, the last cult leader, Grallak Kur, spoke of visions of worms crawling from cracks in the earth and stated that a member of TMUAGFD was involved in the rise of the worms. Lerissa informed the party of dreams she had been having of worms crawling out of the earth.

Thinking that they had thwarted the Ebon Triad, TMUAGFD made for the exit. As they returned to the main temple area, the ground began to shake and a horrible creature emerged from a black pool in the center of the room. The Ebon Aspect, the representation of the three merged gods, was before them. They faught the beast and eventually killed the beast, preventing it from ravaging Daggerford and the rest of Ferun.

The party then decided to go to talk to Delfen, to whom they had delivered Filge’s worm, to tell him of the temple and the cult…
