Session 1 - The Magic Apple [ 04.25.10 ]
A magic apple that can cure any ailment grows near Oahhurst every year and goes up for sale, this year having been bought by William Watson Worthington, III, who is still lingering around town. Also, the town has been plagued by a rash of unnatural livestock deaths. The gnomes Ariana and Ziastar arrive seeking to get the apple for their mortally wounded chief; Jake Highroad arrives seeking the apple for monetary gain while Harmony arrives on personal business. Morgan arrives to help his/her cousin with the cattle deaths, but also decides to obtain the apple. Soralee has been present in Oakhurst for a couple weeks while trying to investigate the mysterious deaths (and failing spectacularly). Ariana, Ziastar, Morgan, and Jake learn that Worthington III has the magic apple and make bids for it; Jake and Ziastar, realizing that they have competition, each decide to steal the apple, which works out better for Jake than could be reasonably anticipated - he obtains the seeds and talks his way out of jail time, despite getting caught red-handed. That night, the cattle are attacked by thornlings and our travelers band together to fight the creatures. The next day, the travelers are asked to investigate the abandoned ruins that the goblins inhabit - a search party sent there by the townsfolk never returned. Now a party, our heroes go into the Sunless Citadel, get chewed on by rats, fall into pits, get stabbed by angered skeletons, and kill Meepo by accident.
