Session Six: Toasted Mutton

  • The party reunited in Equensey, and collected Aqui from the Temple of Balshora where he recovered well.
  • While waiting for the Toasted Mutton to set sail, the party went shopping.  Aqui bought some leather armor in anticipation of becoming a bard.  He briefly thought about buying an instrument, but in the end decided he would find a conch shell.  Fernando took Hugo to a tea shop where Hugo purchased a magical heating stone, a tea kettle, and 10 portions of cinnamon tea. 
  • Aqui and Fernando had one great night of playing at the tavern and earning tips, and one awful night that meant they had to flee and take refuge at Baron Escebron's house.
  • The Toasted Mutton set sail under Captain Kenway.  Lieutenant Lyndon, an old veteran also missing an eye, trained Hugo to use the ship's ballista and trebuchet.
  • As the party pulls out of port, Hugo served tea to toast the voyage.  Since it's at night, he pointed out constellations and told some Pezzlian stories about them.  Fernando was very interested in hearing the new stories.  Hugo's kalashtar eyes glowed as he enjoyed the tea.
  • The party set up a watch scheme allowing two people to always be on watch.
  • That night, Hugo was given a dream from Hareth.  In it, Hareth was a bald-headed monk.  Hareth identified him as Lago, the first Kalashtar Hareth joined with, and Hugo's ancestor.  Hareth tells him the Plane of Dreams had two Quori, those of the Dream and those of the Nightmare.  They fought a war that spilled over to this plane.  Hareth and the other Dream Quori joined with humans to form the first Kalshtar many centuries ago.  From here, they still combat against the Nightmare Quori.  Lago was a monk Hareth joined with, and the kalashtar connection has been passed down through men to Hugo.
  • Hugo asked Hareth to help him watch over his friends.  He is afraid that he is happy now, but is waiting for the wheel to turn and things to go bad again.  Hareth told Hugo not to worry and that he should try to spread happiness while he is happy.
  • Hugo also learned that there are 13 other kalashtar who are tied to Hareth.
  • Hareth also told Hugo that he will soon attract the attention of the Nightmare Quori, and to be careful.  Learning that they might have been behind hurting Aqui, Hugo got sad then angry, then felt guilty about his anger.  Hareth told him to use his righteous anger.
  • Aqui got to know the soldiers well on the ship.  He also felt very at home on the sea.  He was able to swim in the sea and keep up with the ship. 
  • During Aqui and Micha's watch, a wyvern attacked the ship, targeting Aqui.  Micha was badly wounded, but Aqui's mirror images helped him survive until he could alert the others with a thunderclap.  Hugo and Fernando ran up from below decks and joined in the fight.  Along with the sailors, the party were able to bring down the beast. 
  • Aqui became a bard.
