Eisrik Estate Adventure

At the time of the adventure, Zhazran will be in Grindface, Reece will be in Jusanne at the Seat of the Sun.

The Eisrik Estate, situated in the middle of a sneeze over 3 acres, with over half of it being overgrown with woods, is in the southeast area of Jusanne. It has a two story manor home and a 125’ tower opposite it, with the front doors of the manor on its north side, the front doors of the tower on its south side. The two structures are thirty yards apart. The entire lot is separated by a 10’ wooden fence in slight disrepair, with an inner lot surrounded by a 15’ spiked, iron fence. The path that leads from the city street has a large wooden gate barring the way, then winds through the woods up to the inner lot where it meets a gatehouse, with a tether post nearby on the outside. The night-time guard stationed at the gatehouse is Galen Grillsbar, commissioned by Reece. Galen has an old riding horse, which will be tethered outside. I’m greatly assuming they will attempt this adventure at night. Lack of planning, if they happen to attempt at day, just say Galen is covering for the daytime watchman that day.

The top half of the tower is visible to a watchtower on the Jusanne ramparts. The north view of the upper levels of the tower provides a great look into Jusanne.

The tower has 2 unmoving gargoyles (golems) above its entrance on the second floor balcony, situated about 30’ up. They will ambush anyone other than the Eisriks or Sorvus Tyrglen that touches the front doors, which are also fire trapped. Tamra has every single door in the place fire trapped. Triggering a fire trap will cause a 5’ explosion for 1d4+19 dmg (maybe roll several dice to throw them off). The crashing sound of the gargoyle golems trying to squash the intruders will alert Tamra that something is up, and he promptly casts clairvoyance, followed by clairaudience, to see what is afoot.

The foyer has two marble statues: nude human women with two swords. They are marble golems, and will attack either a) as the last people enter the room, or b) as soon as somebody touches the door to the meeting hall.

REMEMBER: all his spellbooks have explosive runes on them. Remember the huge, gorgeous two-month hourglass in the lab. The top level (not shown on the map, just add it in) is a hermetically sealed library with all his ancient books, and the secret corridor is on that level, not the third. Not shown in those is, right before what is marked as the tomb (which is actually a huge treasure chest) is a pressure plate trap that will drop a vat of acid from the ceiling for 10d6 dmg. In the dungeon are two tables not shown, one w/ the bones of a purple worm strewn about it, as well as an archaeologist’s kit. The other table has a skeleton on it — it’s the autopsy table — and also a kit for that purpose. In the tombchamber, Michael Eisrik, Tamra’s son, and Abraham Eisrik, Tamra’s father, are in the tombchamber on top of the tombs ready to attack [post fact note: had them ready by the door instead, and just fyi they were crypt things animated by Tamra, with Michael still wearing some of his old adventuring gear and sporting an insane neg. 11 AC]. There is a trap door south of the column that is just a very deep, 160’ pit with pitons hammered in for hand and foot holds — this drops down into a small cave, which is part of the ancient worm tunnels.

The manor home is dusty, hasn’t been cleaned in months. Most non-furniture items of value are gone already, Reece and Zhazran having already sold most of it. There is nothing of interest in there other than valuable furniture and some odds and ends.

Comments

Zhazran gets first two picks on magical items. Then your group gets 2, then he gets 2, then you get 2, then he gets 1, and you lot get the rest. He gets first pick on spellbook, and it’s rotated out 1 you folks, then one him, then one you folks, 4 & 4 split.


Zhazran takes bracers AC 4 & cloak +3. He takes spellbook #6 as his first pick on those.

Any ideas on how to manage this? I would suggest we go for the most valuable magical items, since we can’t find enough useful ones to go around, for this group. So we could take the best stuff to sell or trade, and swap them out for other stuff at magical shops, or whatever. I saw that there’s a spell Allison wants, so you’re welcome to pick the first spellbook, if that will get it for you.

Now we wait to see where the dust settles on the initial agreement in light of there actually be 9 spellbooks.
