Kormatin Solo Session 7: 7-12-2022

General Summary

Kormatin and company bribed the neighbor living closest to Kostya the simpleton pawn of Emerande to keep tabs on him.   Tihalt and Brigid tailed Kostya while Kormatin and Ragani bought some new weapons and made some inquiries.   Eventually, Kormatin figured out that the vampire they were seeking was lairing in the subbasement of a local brewer who seemed to be one of the vampire's thralls.   Just in case Kormatin and company were about to die, Kormatin sent a letter explaining what he found to the Barony of the Dead .   With the help of the wand of basic Plant magic given to them by Hahn earlier, they easily subdued the brewer before he could raise an alarm. They grabbed his keys and went into the basement, found a sub basement and were able to catch Emerande's guard's flat footed but not before one could pull a bell string.   They incapacitated the three guards in three or four minutes. Ragani used her Healing magic to keep the incapacitated men from bleeding to death, then they were bound in manacles.   Emerande was awake and lighting candles when Kormatin and company reached her. She tried some banter, but Ragani wounded her with Healing spell initiating combat. It was a tough fight but due to extensive magical defensive buffs, Kormatin and his allies were able to wear her down with group gang up tactics until she ran low on blood and willpower points.   The only wound Kormatin's party took occurred when Tihalt accidentally struck Brigid. Tihalt redeemed himself by getting the killing blow on Emerande.   They interrogated the brewer. The brewer tried to pretend he was being mind controlled, but Kormatin and company saw through his false front. Kormatin made the deal with him that they will let him keep his business and tell everyone that he was not acting of his own free will if he cooperates with them taking Emerande's accumulated wealth, which he agreed to. Kormatin finally passed an intimidation roll for once.   Kormatin revised his letter to the Barony of the Dead. He sent an expedited letter to Baron Fyodor Deorac IV asking for men to help him move the supplies.   Kormatin and allies read Emerande's most recent journals and worked their way backwards. They nabbed Emerande's back up daylight guard when he arrived for his shift. They determined that the merchant and oldest man of the Prophet's Pass Pentarchy were in Emerande's thrall as well as two other wealthy local merchants.   They determined that Emerande was paranoid of other vampires and ghosts. She was robbing wealthy travelers no one would miss and using her merchant thralls to fence the goods. Over the decades, she kidnapped artists and made them create art glorifying Emerande then killed them.   Kormatin left his sidekicks to guard the prisoners and loot and was on his way to contact the military leader of the pentarchy (who the journals showed was NOT in Emerande's thrall) but they found everyone was abuzz because Teresa the child oracle had declared   "The puppet master is dead, beware the hungry dragon instead."   He decided to visit the local Stewards of the Gift to explain that he just slew a vampire puppet master. Teresa insisted on seeing Kormatin and hugged him. She said that her terrifying nightmare visions of a beautiful blood soaked stalking her went away. Then she gave another prophecy.   By sunlight or moonlight, Rohdri’s schemes must be brought to light If he’s slain before a new Rohdri will take flight   The local Stewards asked to see Emerande's journals and lair. They began making a copy of Emerande's journals. They also helped arranged to quietly arrest Emerande's merchant thralls.   The Stewards promised to help. They suggested but not demanded that Kormatin give a percentage of his loot to Prophet's Pass as a gesture of goodwill.   This is when we decided was a good time to end the session.
