Asssasin In The Temple- The Islands of Purple Putresence - An Astonishing Swordsmen & Sorcerers of Hyperborea Actual Play Event

The PC's have been exploring the ruins of a giant healing temple belonging to the HP Lovecraft god Nodens. It took them two weeks but they're very happy with last week's game!

The PC's finally escaped the giant temple of  Nodens & managed to steal not one but two Hyperborean healing chambers from the decaying facility. This version of Nodens has many of the traits associated with the Lovecraftian chaos deity. But this  Nodens (Nudens, Nodons) is a Celtic deity associated with healing, the sea, hunting and dogs whose drawn from the Dark Albion Cults of Chaos book.

Cults of Chaos is a very handy book to use tho flesh out cults of Chaos & especially some of the details, artifacts, spells,etc. because it works very well with so many OSR games. Its quick, handy, & very easy to use. Meanwhile there were a number of malfunctioning & ruined healing/cryo chambered filled with Hyperborean zombies. It took them the better part of an hour so to deal with these undead horrors.

Meanwhile a number of Hyperborean knights of Nodens were awakening from slumber unaware of the danger that was all around them. One or two of the ten knights had awakened only to be attacked and bitten by a zombie or two. The PC's managed to save the majority of them but then an unknown assassin took two shots at one of the PC's! This was after he or she drained all of the energy crystals from the PC that they had collected. Unknown to the PC's at this time is the fact that this person was a servant of the Eld who had targeted the adventurer in question as a target who would some time in the future interfere with the plans of the Eld. The bastard managed to teleport away! The PC's were pissed but managed to save the knights as I said. I'm planning on using the Eld more in this up coming campaign. These are the same beings who appear in Chris Kutalik, & Robert Parker's  Misty Isles of the Eld from the Hydra Cooperative.

The PC's managed to escape the underground ruins of the temple & make their way topside to sell their booty to the crime lord/wizard. The knights used a Great Race of Yith teleporter unit to take the PC's to an Hyperborean outpost. These knights have been in cryo sleep for more then five hundred years! What the PC's don't know is that an Eld raiding party is at this very moment tracking them across space/time to the outpost! Even now their drawing closer and closer!
