Chapter 16 - It Ain't Easy Being Demon

A rather grotesque toad-like creature tears through the fabric of reality and attacks our heroes in the Upper Reach of Trost. With him comes another maw demon, similar to the creatures they faced in the woods outside of the haberdashery. Not good! It will take everything in the Tiefling’s power to overcome this new threat. Thankfully, they’ve got backup in the form of a Dwarf cleric and an Eladrin bard. -- DM -- Jonathan Hardesty @movieguyjon -- SPECIAL GUEST -- Gordon McAlpin @gmcalpin (twitter, insta) -- PLAYERS -- Andrew Staton @andrew_staton Tony Dane @nomsternessy Johnny Recher @johnnyrecher Samantha Garrison @samijane613 (Insta) Bryan Dressel - @WhyBryanWhy -- SPECIAL THANKS -- Gordon McAlpin for the art for this campaign! @gmcalpin (twitter, insta) ArcKnight for providing the minis and props used in this campaign. @arcknightgames --- MUSIC FROM https://filmmusic.io --- "Five Armies" “Satiate Percussion” “Volatile Reaction” by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com) Licence: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) DEMON DAYZ THEME CREATED BY BRADLEY PARSONS

Chapter 23 - Regrets and Reconciliations

The fight over the fate of the Succubus comes to a head and the party finds they must reconcile some major philosophical differences if they wish to move forward. On the one hand, the victims at The Rest of Eldath signed their souls away of their own volition. That’s just “good business” as far as devils of the nine are concerned. On the other hand, the contracts were shit and signed under dubious pretenses. And there’s that whole bit where the Succubus tried to charm and possibly kill Yewsiff. Is now the time and is this the place to mete out justice, or must destiny be allowed to shape the killer’s punishment?-- DM --Jonathan Hardesty @movieguyjon-- PLAYERS --Andrew Staton @andrew_statonTony Dane @nomsternessyJohnny Recher @johnnyrecherSamantha Garrison @samijane613 (Insta)Bryan Dressel - @WhyBryanWhy-- SPECIAL THANKS --Gordon McAlpin for the art for this campaign! @gmcalpin (twitter, insta)ArcKnight for providing the minis and props used in this campaign.@arcknightgames--- MUSIC FROM https://filmmusic.io ---"Five Armies"“Magic Forest”“Ossuary 5 - Rest”“Pippin the Hunchback”“Teller of the Tales”by Kevin MacLeod (https://incompetech.com)Licence: CC BY (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)DEMON DAYZ THEME CREATED BYBRADLEY PARSONS
