At the end of the last session, we left our heroes after they had triumphantly weathered a terrible storm.
People used to say I was sad and boring because I spent so much time gaming. But, gaming is awesome…
So named for the corpses—or bits of corpses—often hung from its parapets, Traitor’s Gate serves as a grizzly reminder of Duke Nenonen’s absolute authority over his kingdom. Those with nefarious intent—particular smugglers and thieves—prefer to enter the city elsewhere.
At the end of the last session, we left our heroes battling against a ferocious storm. Without warning, disaster struck.
Struggling figures swarm over the doomed ship’s deck as huge waves break over its side. Caught on barely submerged rocks, which have ripped its bottom out, the ship begins to break up as the PCs battle a group of monstrous, depraved cultists struggling to open an extra-planar gate through which their be-tentacled master will enter the world!
River Gate is a bit of a misnomer—there is no actual gate at River Gate. Instead, a pair of squat watch towers commands the Svart’s course were it begins to widen before flowing into Hard Bay. Each of these watchtowers is heavily fortified and topped by ballistae capable of sweeping the river.
