Rise of the Runelords

2.2 - The Thing in the Attic

Arriving at Habe’s Sanitorium, the PCs met with some heavy resistance from the owner & operator – Erin Habe – who claimed to be quite busy with some very important work. After much reluctance, Erin allowed the PCs to speak to Grayst…under supervision.

Upon bringing the clearly insance & sick Grayst down, the tormented man locks eyes on Savanni and his eyes bulge, “He said. He said you would visit me. His Lordship. The one that unmade me said so. He has a place for you. A precious place. I’m so jealous. He has a message for you. He made me remember it. I hope I haven’t forgotten. The master wouldn’t approve if I forgot. Let me see…let…me…see. He said that if you came to his Misgivings, that if you joined his pack, he would end his harvest in your honor.”

Message delivered, Grayst collapsed, issuing a low moan, only to rise again attacking Savanni. Chaos ensued as the PC fought back, the two tiefling bodyguards attempted to keep the peace, and Erin fled upstairs. Half the group followed Mr. Habe – only to be accosted by another of the Sanitorium’s residents, a wererat by the name of Pidget Tergelson. Quickly dispatched, the continued upwards searching for Erin, finally finding him on the top floor locked in a room. Breaking down the door, they found it to be empty and as they found the hidden compartment, Erin made a dash for the stairs but was quickly apprehended.

While this was going on, the PCs who were keeping tabs on the two bodyguards and Grayst’s corpse were surprised when a necromancer came up from the cellar to see what all the commotion was about. Whittling him down, eventually the necromancer beat a hasty retreat with the help of his magics and slipped through the PCs fingers. As the first half of the group joined in the fray, Erin used the commotion to slip away as well.
