List of Campaign 1 sessions

"Furry Explosion" (1x43) is the 43rd session of the first campaign of Itora.

Ricoril says goodbye to his family as the party leave Cleiben. Setting course for Ockburn, the group confronts Afiqa about her apparent betrayal, only to find things are more complicated than they appear.


Early the next morning, Ricoril finds Versa's letter to Yllzenya Yeltsa. Ricoril goes to contact Versa, who is outside the city, but does so through a one-way telepathic link instead of the Ring of Masks, leaving Versa perplexed. Gael picks up the figurine of Versa she wanted. Pine casts Sending to his father, asking whether or not he wants his help; he replies dismissively.

The rest of the party discuss their next destination, deciding to meet up with Versa first before finalizing their decision. Ricoril says goodbye to his family, and his mother surprises him with a hand-made "Furry Explosion" scarf, which he instantly dons. Ricoril expertly tracks down Versa, who they find camped off the beaten path just as she her brewed poison backfires and fails.

To Ockburn

Setting course to Ockburn to confront Afiqa, the party travel for over a week through the desert. Just after midnight on January 23rd, Kismet gives Versa a call after on the Ring of Masks to loudly celebrate Versa's birthday - an exclamation loud enough to wake Gael, who smugly smiles and keeps the information to himself until the others wake. Magpie calls later to give a less bombastic birthday message to her fiancee.

As a present to herself, Versa decides to partake in a cupcake from the Boulangerie de Beaucoup, manifesting The Fool:

0 - The Fool - Your comprehension of any language other than common is reduced to zero, and speaking any other language results in inane babble. However, your grasp of Common refines, and you gain the ability to perfectly read lips from any visible distance. These effects last until healed by Greater Restoration or Wish.

The effects of the treat are not immediately apparent to Versa, so the group continues on towards Ockburn.


Arriving in the afternoon on the 26th, the party head straight to the orphanage. Versa warns Eve about the potential of a threat requiring them to relocate the orphanage. Versa also updates Magpie on the situation, which will be addressed further when the Avarice arrives in port in two days. During these conversations, Versa notices Gael speaking to Friend in some gibberish, which confuses her.

Heading into the city proper, Versa keeps an eye out as the group approach their destination. Surveying the environment, Versa fully realizes the effect of The Fool, and turns about face and purges the effect through a Greater Restoration at the Temple of Arthys.

The Bookstore Incident

Versa, disguised, leads the group to a bookstore - one that acts as a front for Afiqa's intelligence business conducted in secret behind it. The party pass a woman leaving the building as they enter - a stranger to whom they pay no mind. Versa loudly announces that a bookstore on the other side of the city is giving away books, a lie that successfully empties the store of patrons. A security guard approaches her and asks her not to poach business like that, but she replies in code that she's here to see Afiqa. He leads her to the back and leads the party in.
