Rise of the Fallen Star - Forgotten Realms Game

Here are some pictures from last night's Forgotten Realms game.  The party heard of a rumor that a cult was operating in the town and after a time several important people went missing including Lady Brannon the Seneshal to Lord Ulkar of Highmoon.  They went to the slums district near Eastingbridge and came across horrors man was not meant to know.  They were represented by Tyranids and Genestealers.  They used an amulet with an eye that had tentacles coming out of the top to locate the cult.  The mage of the party succumbed to the power of the amulet and slipped it on at almost the climax when they engaged the alienist responsible.  Then they saw the horrors of the mutations as their friends and Lady Brannon who were captured appeared as genestealer hybrids - the amulets transforming them into dark cultists of Dagon...

This is our bi-weekly Tuesday dnd game and is not the game that is podcasted as Chronicles of the Seven.  This game is called Fall of the Risen Star and it takes place concurrently with the Chronicles.  In addition, next Tuesday we start a bi-weekly game on the opposite side of the fence as the grand story arch continues...

Clawed horrors leap from behind old stores and decaying market stalls at the party but the mage calls forth a skeletal owlbear (represented by the ape).



The battle rages on as more of the aliens ambush the party from hiding places beneath the purple mist that covers the ground...


A shrieking horrifying howl echos from beyond this realm as more alien monsters leap forward and the genestealers engage..

The party is badly wounded by dispatches the alien horde after seven hard rounds of combat.

Just as they are about to rest the master appears with his bestial alien guards as he spits a purplish ichor as his temporal spells assail the party with images of nightmares.

The monsters charge forward as the alienist sends his homunculus (represented by the tyranid gargoyle) to harry the mage.. The party's mage falls victim the the alienist's powers and feels madness creep in as he summons monsters to fight against his friends...  The hybrids are discovered in the abandoned warehouse and the alienist is slain by the warrior elf while gloating over an early expected victory... Somewhere on the opposite side of the street another robed figure moves behind the buildings as the party watches the master escape while they are too weak to fight him...
