Carrion Crown

Session #3
Harrowstone Prison - ground floor investigation - Session #2

In the word of our intrepid explorers…

The heroes took a closer look at the strange runes engraved on the foundations of Harrowstone Prison. The engravings were written in Varisian, and there were traces of Abjuration and Conjuration magic. This was obviously some sort of spell or ritual, and a single name was repeated many times over – that of Lyvar Hawkran, the old prison warden.

The heroes entered the prison to investigate further, and encountered some strange and scary goings on, including being attacked by flying flaming skulls, branding irons and a straight jacket! It seemed as if something was controlling the objects, causing them to lash out at the PC’s.
Then they came upon the spirit of Vesorianna Hawkran, the warden’s wife. She spoke to the heroes and explained that the prison was full of very nasty and powerful spirits, and that up until a short while ago she and her husband had managed to hold back these spirits and stop them escaping the prison. Then some strange people came to the prison and performed a ritual that seems to of banished the spirit of Lyvar Hawkran, and now the prison spirits are running riot. The only way to stop them is to deal with the most powerful ghosts, those of the nastiest criminals kept in the prison before the great fire. In life they were known as The Piper of Illmarsh, Father Charlatan, The Lopper, The Mosswater Marauder and The Splatter Man.

Vesorianna informed the heroes that when these prisoners were brought to Harrowstone their belongings were taken from them and kept on the South-east side of the prison, and that these items may aid in the spirit’s destruction.

After starting to explore the South-east side of the prison, the heroes were chased out by a poltergeist, and are now standing outside the front doors, the sun dipping low in the western sky.

In Ravengro

Today the PC’s decided to look into the strange happenings surrounding the Professors death. After asking Kendra some questions, they noticed a disturbance in town and went to see what was going on. During the night someone had vandalised the monument to the prison guards. The PC’s decided to go and check out the old prison and the findings the Professor had noted in his journal.

End of Session – Wealday, 14:50

The Funeral

2. Desnus 4711 AR, Toliday

The PC’s arrive at The Restlands cemetery to the north of Ravengro. The funeral of Professor Lorrimor only went smoothly after the procession was stopped by a group of townsfolk claiming the late professor was a Necromancer and they wouldn’t allow him to be buried here. Of course this was preposterous so the PC’s proceeded to beat some sense into them until (the mayor?) showed up to confirm their stupidity and sent the troublemaking bunch on their way. After the funeral the party escorted Kendra Lorrimor back to her house for the reading of the will. The professor had left them in charge of escorting a small collection of Tomes to the Lepidstadt University, after they stay in Ravengro for 1 month to help Kendra.
