Of Meese and Drukkor
Previously on Milf$
After walking through the portal of the one in the weald, the gang found themselves lost in the wintery wonderland of the fey wild, and only source of adventure was that they needed to pursue the “Temple Adjacent to Autumn”.
Ko’viel created a hut and the group attempted to rest while Bruce believed they could speak to plants and Drukkor followed a series of foot prints leading to a grove of 3 moose, 3 deer and 3 elk. After patting them in a pattern, with the group of creatures asking for more pats, Drukkor believed they were entranced by the Meese god to keep patting.
Gar and Avon became concerned and looked for Drukkor, finding them stuck with the meese. The animals combined into a large Meese like creature that followed the group through the forest. The group evaded the Colossoal Meese Creation which they saw in the distance stand upright and turn into a beautiful explosion of luminescent meese. A large looming cloud like shadow follows Drukkor now of a reindeer in the sky.
After a long rest, the group came across a group of 3 Satyrs playing the song that goes “He’s a piss pot through and through…” on loop. The Satyrs revealed it would take the group 1 – 200 years to travel to the summer court and provided details of someone who knew about the location, an ancient tree named Trenedad. They found the cold wintery leaf-less tree with a face who would offer them directions to The Temple adjacent to Autumn at the price the group would tell them a Story, as they are dying old spirit of the fey wild. The group recounted the tale of Shel’bo, Kiana Kalebane’s Daughter who they defeated Stoneregard (see Arc 1). Trenedad provided them a twig which pointed continuously in the direction of the temple. The group followed the twigs direction and Satyrs.
Throughout their travel there, they came across a group of Soldiers from the Dominion of Archul confused about where they were, apparently on a mission to a town named Orisheyna before ending up here. The group left these soldiers behind and came towards a vineyard called “The Coven of Grapes and Vines”. There they met a woman named Aunty Amethyst who fed the group some wine, which after a few tastes made them really intoxicated. The witch mentioned they had a sister the group had come across before named Aunty Agatha, who is a part of their coven (see s3 -7). Aunty Amethyst let the sample the wine before letting them proceed onwards through their vineyard.
Eventually, the group started to come across a place with autumn colours of orange and dead leaves, understanding they were close to the portal. They saw displacer beasts throughout this area before being stopped by a courageous and perky forest Gnome named Felice. Felice identified themselves as protector for the temple adjacent to autumn and initially denied entrance to the temple, but eventually compromised with the group as to not engage into combat. Additionally, the group offered them the Satyrs. Felice revealed they were guarding the temple for Janus, the God of Doors and Passageways who was displeased with the fey wild.
As Felice took them to the temple, dead autumn leaves around the base of the temple, they saw a tall sylvan figure similar to avon step outside. The person directed their attention to Avon, identifying themselves as Adara, citing that Avon had saved them once upon a time. Adara did not want them to proceed to the summer court but eventually Avon the group struck a deal with Adara to go with them, as Adara felt like they owed Avon. With that, the gang proceeded with Adara into the temple.
