Children of the Temple

Darkness Comes

The Holy City is invaded by an army of strange creatures wielding beautiful weapons (as well as a 60-foot tall, two-headed wolf, and a woman with no eyes who cries blood). The statue of Ladina in the Temple Gardens has been blackened and destroyed.

Eva ran towards the danger and was saved at the last moment. The three orphans met in the orphanage just as Master Bullwick raised a barrier against the invaders and Mistress Anna fought alongside him. Anna eventually convinced the children to flee into the forest.

The children have spent a week in the woods, trying to find food and water, avoiding wolves, and fighting a young bear. They then had a vision of Tsun, Forgal and Keira, who instructed them to survive, to stick together, to find Tabitha, to grow strong, and to free the Holy City.

The next day, the party ran across a site where 3 travellers had been chased and killed. The party looted a few items and kept heading west, looking for Tabitha, when they heard sounds of combat just ahead…

Time to learn a trade

Master Bullwick has insisted that each child learn a trade. He gave each child a choice of two tradesmen who were willing to bring them aboard.

Adran apprenticed with Thack the smith. After helping to save Thack from being kidnapped, Thack gave Adran his favourite hammer.

Aoibhe apprenticed with Captain Lajoie, a fisherman and sailor. After helping the Captain’s ship and crew survive a nasty storm, the Captain gave Aoibhe his favourite scaling knife.

Tabitha apprenticed with Red, the innkeeper. After helping Red toss out some troublemakers, Red gave Tabitha her favourite frying pan.

In addition, each character gets 2 free skill points to spend on apprenticeship-related skills.

Characters have levelled up to 1st level.

(Phil: I’d like to run your intro at 0th before you go up to 1st, but it shouldn’t take long, so you may want to have both versions ready for next session)
