Adventures With Short People

Where the Wild Things Are

Following Xandorius’ (admittedly muddled) directions, the party enlisted the Cobalt family to sail them to the Ichors’ smuggling cove. There they took a dinghy ashore to explore the villa, where they encountered an enormous animated disco dancer. After the halfling endured certain indignities to his bacon from both statue and dwarf, they were able to disassemble the statue and proceed to the remnants of the villa cum smuggling house.

There they found that the house had been partially wrecked by a roc, which had created a nest for its 3 eggs. The roc appeared and, sensing a threat to its nest, carried Xandorius up to the roof where it began to tear him to pieces. Luckily, owing to the quick spellcasting of Tswnn and Hiro’s immense strength, they were able to save the slippery half-elf, thereby gaining for themselves the riches of this smuggler’s cove.

Smoke on the Wind

Manus’ two main apprentices – both gnomish men

Cornelius Cordiseps (distant relation of Cornelia)

Dandelius Dorderon

The apprentices helped Manus put together 5 constructs before he evicted them from his workshop. Shortly afterwards there was a large explosion, and when they were able to break past the seals he’d placed on it, they found that the constructs were all missing, along with most of the magical tools (wands of mending, etc.) and apprentice spellbooks that were left in the manor. When tracking in the mountains, the party come across several marks of the constructs’ passage: some herbs, including woad, had been picked by them, and in one spot they dug up and began to chip off some cassiterite (tin ore) rocks. At the cassiterite dig, they were contacted by the constructs using a message spell. The constructs informed them that Manus’ legacy would not be forgotten: the day will come when they “shake the world upon its pillars”. Ragnar, in token of the friendship he wished to share with them, left them his Torag-engraved wight skull before Tswnn used a dimension door to pull the party away.
