Empire of the Ghouls Session 5 – The Clockwork Oracle

I started work on the Empire of the Ghouls adventure path for Kobold Press just over two years ago, writing the overall outline with Wolfgang Baur, and then Chapter 2: The Holy Robes of Sister Adelind, and Chapter 6: The Pure City of Vandekhul

Now that the adventure has been released, I'm posting the brief  session write ups I’ve been doing for my players in our monthly Empire  of the Ghouls campaign.

In our fifth session, we finished Chapter 1 of Empire of the Ghouls, Dread Chambers of the Undercity and started Chapter 2. Here's the write up which contains spoilers for the campaign. 

For the Clockwork Oracle's machine speech, I used sound effects from a steampunk album I found on Spotify – it worked really well :)

8th – 14th High Summer, 92 FY 

The adventurers have a week of downtime in Zobeck. Bubbles throws a successful party on the Street of Joy (despite the efforts of her rival, Lady Leonora) and burns the incense found in the cult temple. She experiences a vision of her brother being taken in chains to a ghoul city in the Underworld. Louthin has dinner with the shadow fey Ambassador Glaninin Thelamandrine and learns of ghouls roaming the Ironcrags. He also sells the alchemist’s spellbook to the Book Fetish. Zygmunt forges horseshoes at the Temple of Volund and impresses Ondli Firedrake. Penumbra studies the Prophets of the Red Goddess, while the Gears makes a useful contact who can introduce him to Queen Chainbreaker, one of the Kobold Kings.
