"History of a Lark" (1x23) is the 23rd session of the first campaign of Itora.


June 24, 353 WSK

Pali sends her Griffon up in the air to scout and report back. After a few minutes, Gael and Lurtak notice the sound of cracking branches some distance away - and above. An impact shakes the ground between the two camps. As the dust clears, they see the Griffon free itself from the grasp of a large musclebound cat equal in size, with four dangerous-looking tentacles whipping around, looking for an opening. Warhorns echo in all directions as the enemy approaches.

The enemies appear to be the remnants of the mercenary group the party had fought previously. However, along with an ironshadow monk and countless grunts, the hobgoblin warlord commanded two lightly armored displacer beasts.

Twilight Sparkle almost dies to a displacer beast, but successfully bluffs being dead. The party eventually fell the beasts along with the warlord, causing the remaining grunts to flee.

June 25

The next morning, the guides bring the party a short distance to the main entrance of their complex. Obscured in an illusion, Pali dispels it with a brooch, and asks the group to follow her inside. Passing through a set of massive metal doors, they travel down corridors made of stone and metal. A mixture of scientists and guards pass them in the halls. Their guides leave them in a waiting room, telling them they will be summoned when their superiors are available to meet with them.

The party proceeds to wreck the room in literally every way imaginable, including:

   Versa makes a messy, massive cup of tea/coffee using as many sugars as possible, which Pine drank
   Pine puts chairs in the doorway, destroying many in the process
   The party collectively draws a detailed dick on a whiteboard
   Versa spikes a magical watercooler with a sleep poison

Eventually, Pine figured out how to open the door and Versa heads out to scout. She finds nobody in the hallway and eventually loops back to the door she left from - but from the opposite side. The party realize that illusions are afoot. As the illusions fall away, they find themselves in a throne room in disrepair.

A door opens, as a cloaked figure walks in, greeting them. They introduce themselves as the Lark, and explain their history. They were present during the Shock, hundreds of years prior. In a repair/stasis mode until recently, they fought their way through the Fair Abyss to find the organization they founded to be warped far from their initial goals.
