Campaign of the Month: March 2009

Denizens of the Nentir Vale

D&D - The Holiday Musical

Overture

Oh come, all ye Valers
Irate and despondent
Oh come, ye, oh come ye
To Plu – u – uton
Come and behold him
Aspect of the Reaper
Oh come, let us attack him
Oh come, let us attack him
Oh come, let us attack him
Reaper of Souls

(The five adventurers are in a strange realm, following a passage and experimenting with a magical cube they have carried for some time.)

We Five Beings

We five beings, adventurers are
Bearing arms, we traverse afar
Spheres of evil
Caves of the devil
Following signs of war
Uh-oh
Cube of wonder, cube of sight
Cube of power and of might
Downward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect fight

(They come to a cavern with four divergent paths marked by symbols.)

The Four Paths of Pluton

On the first path of Pluton
A symbol turned my head -
A lion on a field of red

On the second path of Pluton
A symbol turned my head -
Two crescent moons
And a lion on a field of red

On the third path of Pluton
A symbol turned my head -
Three colors on a dragon
Two crescent moons
And a lion on a field of red

On the fourth path of Pluton
A symbol turned my head -
Four crossed swords
Three colors on a dragon
Two crescent moons
And a lion on a field of red

(The travelers take the path under the crossed swords, a symbol of the Eladrin. Rift uses the cube to see through the door at the end of the passage.)

Do You See What I See

Said the Eladrin to the Half-elf
Do you see what I see
Through that door, little half-elf
Do you see what I see
A chest, a chest
And a bowl therein
Surrounded by coffins
Surrounded by coffins

(The adventurers enter the room, open the chest, and pick up the bowl. Suddenly the coffins open, spewing fire and skeletons.)

Skeletons Flaming With an Open Fire

Skeletons flaming with an open fire
Sharp claws nipping at your skin
Potent fire blasts being shot by their Lord
And blows directed at your chin
Everybody knows a firefight and some sorcery
Help to make a dangerous fight
Tiny skulls with their eyes all aglow
Will make it hard to survive tonight

(The fight begins immediately.)

Swinging Swords

Slashing through the fight
Through bones and flesh and hair
Anything in sight
He doesn’t really care
Both hands swinging free
Grinning all the way
Oh what fun it is to see
Erik in a melee

Swinging swords, swinging swords,
Swinging all the way
Oh what fun it is to see
Erik swing away
Swinging swords, swinging swords,
Swinging all the way
Oh what fun it is to see
Erik in a melee

(The five flaming skeletons and two floating skulls are nearly too much for the party.)

Good Cleric Z’alden

Good cleric Z’alden looked out
On the field of battle
Where the hurt lay round about
Like some butchered cattle
Brightly shone his mace that night
Healing Rift and Erik
Even healing him himself
And striking hard like Barrick

(The adventurers gain the upper hand.)

Deck the Halls

Deck the halls with bones of fire
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Tis a reason to aim higher
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Take we now our platinum and gold
Fa la la, la la la, la la la
Let’s go on, ere we grow old
Fa la la la la, la la la la

(Victorious, the group continues, but sees a vision.)

Look! A Vision in my Head!

Look! A vision in my head
Golden hall, but dark and dead
Crystal, red and black, in sight
And two beings, in a fight
Arathis and Narul by name
But Narul gets all the blame
“Death is my domain” says he
As he slams his scythe with glee
The soul of Arathis he cleaves
But Narul relents and leaves
Arathis is left alone
Unable to take the soulstone

(The group knows nothing of the soulstone, but is drawn down the corridor to a square room, with four pillars and four walkways leading to the middle, where the soulstone itself rests,)

Tira the Sorceress

Tira the Sorceress
Was anything but dull
With the feat of flight
And a spider’s might
Her bag of tricks was full

Tira the Sorceress
Was a cunning, clever witch
She could open a door
Or call minions four
With a simple nasal twitch

Tira the Sorceress
Knew the stone was guarded some
But she turned aghast
When a deadly blast
Blew her spider to kingdom come

Tira the Sorceress
Was as brave as she could be
When the Reaper appeared
For her life she feared
Just the same as you and me

(The party now faces the Aspect of the Reaper of Souls, whom they had defeated once, but not definitively.)

I’m Dreaming of a Great Victory

I’m dreaming of a great victory
Just like the one we had last time
With some blows from Barrick
And some arrows from Erik
It will surely be sublime

I’m dreaming of a great victory
With every potion I drink
This guy is strong
And the fight lasts long
But we will win, I think

I’m dreaming of a great victory
Though I think we need a plan
I’ve lost my might
I can hardly fight
I hope the others can

I’m dreaming of a great victory
With every ragged, shallow breath
I need to be healed
And then concealed
Cause I think I’m close to death
