Ogres and the Oni

After saving a village from a band of Ogres, the Reckless Gentlemen find they may be in over their heads... again

As the The Reckless Gentlemen was exploring a ruin tower. Searching for antiques and lore to sell. As they explored they heard screaming coming through the wood. A pair of villagers rushed into them, yelling that their village was under attack by ogres. Alphons immediately rushed through woods and found a village burning. Alphons engaged the ogres while Flarr and Chrisoff rescued the villagers.

They escorted the villagers to the nearest town where they discovered that the whole region was bright raided. Hundreds were misplaced into this town. The city watch was severely undermanned, led by Simeon Shrinks who had been nicknamed by the town “shrinks away”. The refugees were becoming a problem and a local merchant Martin Soleck who insisted that the problem be dealt with immediately. And to make matters worse the was a murder in town.

The “Gentlemen” meet a dwarf trader who was stuck in this town because of Ogres were amassing in large number and looting nearby villages. He informed them of the cities problems and that members of the Monstercry guild to help deal with the problem. Meanwhile the young girl that was rescued claimed to have seen her father outside the window asking her to come with him, yet when Christoff searched he found nothing. They also learned of a mysterious figure killing the Ogres in the woods.

When they went back to retrieve their gear, they encountered dead orges who seemed to have been killed by this mysterious figure. They tried to find Gallean Dae but he kept evading them.

Alphons began to help the citizens of the town however possible, yet dealt with fear from the refugees and anger from the locals. Flarr tried to help the mayor and bring the nobles into line with little help, with Soleck rabble rousing among the refugees to get them out of his town and attack the ogres. Christoff tried to help Shrinks to train the guard and search for this murder.

One night, Christoff and Alphons cam across a blood scene. They chased a figure of through the town and discover it to be an Oni. Alphons went into a rage as he remembered the same monster slaughtering his family. Try as they might though, the Oni escaped.

Flarr believing that Soleck was walking into this Blodarkarick hands tried to convince him to stop what he was trying with the refugees. When Soleck was unmoved by this, Flarr took drastic action. Flarr used his magic to creep into Soleck’s home and killed him in his sleep.

This however did not stop the refugees, especially after the Monstercry refused to help. The reckless gentleman aided in the fight as best they could but each fell. Galleon was able to rescue Alphons, Flarr fled using his magic, and Christoff was saved by the dwarf trader. Alphonse made a small prayer to Chaelee Daegon seeking help, she said that galleon could if his mind is restored.

When each group returned to town, they found it being over run by the ogres. Searching the each made their way through the city and discovered where the rest of the city was hiding. It was at this time that the dwarf trader dropped his illusion to reveal himself as the Oni, Blodarkarick.

After a rough fight against the Oni and the Ogres Alphons was about to strike him down, when the reckless gentleman discovered themselves in a more wooded town. Walking forth was Lamia the Hag Queen, she offed them a deal. She will take the remainder of the ogres out of the city and save the town. Alphonse, dropped his weapon and said no. He would not make a deal, but told her to take this minion and the rest of the army to leave. Lamia smiled and accepted this bargain. When they returned, the ogres were gone. The town was saved.
