TL;DR: Sick necromancer put undead girl in a teddy bear (wtf Kunal!); Undead horde centered on a wooden staff; Saved live captives from the undead and discovered a church in Tallat’s Hill and learned of the Kenku Outkast Village.
Against my better judgement, I decided to join Brynn’s expedition to The Dredge to try uncovering the source of the undead. I am no warrior, and I don’t think it’s necessarily possible to use diplomacy with undead, but it is a Herald’s job to secure the safety of their people and allies, and while the undead continue to walk the streets, we are not able to freely traverse to the different city sectors and further our alliances with the native factions of Summerport.
In the unfortunately poor meeting that Salazar led with The Fist, he was at least able to get some leads of what is going on from their leader, Palmador. The undead have been observed to hold some faction with the Kenku and seemingly take orders from them, as we’ve seen and replicated with the use of illusions. Palmador revealed that the source of the undead can be found in The Dredge, so that is where Brynn decided his god, Gaia, should lead him.
With our group formed, we headed off to the southeast in search of The Dredge. Along the way, we found a curious toy shop that seemed well preserved compared to most of the old structures, guarded by undead skeletons that we made short work of. Brynn detected undead within, so we decided to explore it. Tharrus picked up some spools of gold and silver thread, that seemingly had an enchantment of longevity on them. We came into a room with a large teddy bear in it, which radiated the undead energy. I cant remember who struck the blow to tear it open and see what was within, but we did hear the words “papa” echoed by a cursed undead girl before seeing her put to rest. Unfortunately, we could not stick around for a complete burial, but hoped for time on the way back.
Whatever necromancer is doing this undead stuff is truly a sick individual to imprison a young girl inside of a toy bear….
