Being a log of the events in the Werdna World Open Table campaign.


A Party of various sorts of heroic & non-heroic people have been using Haven Town as their base of operations to explore nearby adventuring sites.

First they climbed to the top of Raven Hill and explored delves beneath, finding & fighting creepy man-like creatures who illuminating their halls with dreadful red torches and were led by a tall one named [[Rikard?]]. They slew Rikard, and also fought undead in the halls, but left several avenues unexplored.

Next the party investigated the ruins of Rode Manor, and especially the dungeon beneath the family mausoleum! There they met undead, Beast Folk, and other strange creatures, as well as the magician Amedeo. The magician first employed them in clearing areas of the dungeon, but was eventually revealed to be a sorcerer, stealing children from the town above to sacrifice in some ritual having to do with spiders! The PCs rescued some of the children, and chased Amedeo from his rooms, but the magician escaped.

During their time exploring the Under Mausoleum, the party also explored the Manor above, and discovered that it was not entirely abandoned! [[Brendan_Rode?]], the last of the family, still lives in the place as a sort of hermit. At first he was stand-offish, but eventually befriended the party, and assisted them in the rescue of the children. After that time, Brendan began to welcome orphans into his mansion, where they are helping the old man to refurbish the place, and to keep a guard on the dangerous catacombs beneath.

The party also made a brief foray upriver to the River Temple, where they discovered some sort of cult operating in the supposedly-long-abandoned halls.
