Agents of GHOST

Session 1: There is no party like a Monk Party

Chapter 36: Temple of ancient dreams.

One man’s silence can drown the voice of any crowd

I was tasked with the oversight for a group of ghost agents within the G.H.O.S.T organisation as their sergeant. I had only briefly seen them before but they turned out to be a rather varied bunch of individuals.

The group introduced themselves and I have to say G.H.O.S.T really does recruit from all corners of the world as there was even an Azad clanswoman who was with us called Traika; I also met the Monk who calls himself Andy a very spiritual fellow who was taken by the goddess Tymora. (The other two recruits introduced themselves here)

We were tasked by Rick (Side Note: We decided to call Ricardo Rick from now on) to help protect the High Monk Klovas who we discovered was around his early 30’s (Andy one of my new squad members had previous contact with the Monks)

Our mission was to infiltrate the Monastery of the Four Gods during the winning ceremony to get close to Klovas by trying to win the contests that were currently being held there. Thankfully we had a few backup plans as Andy was known with the Monk order and we could use his connections to get inside as well as sneaking in if we had to as a last and final option.

We got to the fair grounds and signed up for the tournament and I realized too late that it was a blasted costume party with a gladiator arena mixed in, sort of wish I had been informed about this during the meeting I would have put on my best disguise.

We staked out the area for a while before the tournament, talking to individuals who were also participating in the arena. This is where we met the Ninjas, the Azad clansmen and the Monks of Tempus.

Unfortunately I was distracted by the twins again they just won’t leave me alone for some reason and I have a feeling if Kat ever reads my Journals someone is going to be murdered so I will omit this in my final draft of my book. Yes good idea.

We did not learn much information before the games started but I already had a theory that someone was trying to kill old Klovas or should I say young Klovas because he was picked over other monks in the order even though he was so young.

Finally the tournament started and we bested the following teams:

• Peasants – (Poor bastards probably were peasants we defeated them swiftly)

• Ninjas – (Monks disguised as Ninjas, were a little tougher but we beat them )

• Guards – (These guys got a lucky shot in on Andy but he survived as he was forced into the fan girls who thankfully were momentarily distracted, Traika also went down but not before doing some damage to the guards. I was incredibly lucky enough to take down the three guards with a few magic tricks and swigs of mead)

After winning the first part of the tournament I was accosted by the twins for an autograph while autographing they cheekily hugged me and one gave me a peck on the cheek, yes no I will omit this too. We decided to go investigate the Azad clansmen and the Monks again; me and Andy went to the monks while Traika went to talk to her clansmen.

Andy and I discovered that Hanos Fargetter was another monk in line of succession that was not pleased that Klovas had been picked over him. I also discovered that one of the monks was of Azad descent and tried to tag him to keep an eye on him but failed he was very wary of other people.

Me and Andy decided to keep an eye out for the monk as he could be a suspect since our description was of an Azad Assassin. I still have not ruled out anyone in disguise but then it could be anyone and that’s like looking for that special vintage in the winery without labels.

We bid the Tempus monks farewell and found out Traika had been goaded by her clansmen especially by a man named Haro Golinsohnir of the Randall tribe. Thankfully we were going to be fighting them next round and I am sure Traika will want to give the ruffians what they deserve.

A swift kick in the groin.

Drake’s Notes:

• Remember to omit the top secret parts (Mention of G.H.O.S.T and otherwise)
• The mead was delicious must pick up recipe for monk brew.
• Remember to omit anything that might lead to murder in final draft of book
• Remember to pick up food for dinner before returning home

Party Members:

Andy: Cheerful monk who has spent most of his life in the temple by the account he gave me, I hope to ask about his temple order in the nearby future so I can have notes for my book.

Traika: Azad Clanswoman she seems nice enough although her clansmen were not inclined to share their culture with me when I asked. I will try a secondary approach to gathering information regarding Azad tribal rituals.

Party Member: To be added later

Session 2: Sorry but your Klovas is in another castle

Meanwhile Elsewhere-

Introductions went swiftly after Perci and Rick gave us a chance to get to know each other I introduced the squad to Copper squad to see what they had gotten up to.

Turns out Mortdecai has a bit of megalomaniac complex.

- End

After winning our bouts in the tournament we spent our time resting in the Dragon’s Tail inn. Andy was his usual cheerful self jumping around like a rabbit with endless energy. Morty decided to go sit in the corner of the bar and drink by himself while me and Traika were stuck with Copper squad.

The twins persisted with their infatuations for me which I had to politely decline as their proposal for dubious events at night made me spill my drink.

After the events in the Tavern we defeated the barbarians by a hairs breath winning by knocking them out with sleep spells. Unfortunately Traika was not able to best her challenger in one on one combat and was forced to lose face in front of her clan members; I hope this does not trouble her too much.

The tempus monks beat the guards with ease and we were invited to dinner with Klovas where I snuck a message to him about the assassination attempt.

The message told him to stick to his schedule and that we would catch the assassin in the act. I also deduced that the assassins would most likely strike tonight and not wait for the tournament to be over as they had now gotten close to Klovas.

Oh boy did we catch the assassin in the act after a stroke of genius to disguise ourselves as Klovas and attempt to trick the assassins. Our ploy was simple we had disguised ourselves as a Klovas Theme because adventurers sometimes use disguises after all. One of the Twins decided to pay me a visit that night and I know if I had said yes I would have found my giblets cut out of me the next morning by an angry banshee.

Andy was on watch when the assassin finally struck and unfortunately for Andy the disguise worked a little too well when he got stabbed and went down like a sack of potatoes.
After we took chase over the rooftops we came to a cave with traps where we were ambushed and knocked out. When I came to I was bound and gagged and I was secretly hoping the twins had taken drastic measure to win my affections, since the alternative was obviously far worse.

I guess dinner would have to wait…

Drake’s Notes:
• Remember to omit the top secret parts (Mention of G.H.O.S.T and otherwise)
• Remember to ask Morty about how he became a Ghost Agent
• Remember to cheer up Traika if we ever get out of this hellhole
• Hope I don’t get experimented on again

Party Members:

Andy: Cheerful monk who has spent most of his life in the temple by the account he gave me, I hope to ask about his temple order in the nearby future so I can have notes for my book.

Traika: Azad Clanswoman she seems nice enough although her clansmen were not inclined to share their culture with me when I asked. I will try a secondary approach to gathering information regarding Azad tribal rituals.

Mortdecai: Megalomaniac with a glimmer of sadness in his eyes, probably keeping his ill fate bottled up inside him.

Session 3: Afternoon tea with a side of Torture

I was not so lucky, obviously it was option B we had stumbled into bound and gagged I was dragged away for Interrogation.

Not wanting to give them anything I coaxed up some lies about how the group was chasing our friend who had stabbed him and that we were part of the adventuring group from the tournament.

Did not get me anywhere though blending lies with truth they still beat me up and knocked me out. I got away lucky though since they broke andy’s hand and Morty ended up like a meat popsicle, but we will get to that.

After everybody was interrogated about who we were we were thrown in mostly identical prison cells and I swear to Christ I would have opened the bloody door given enough time and preparation. My Lint and Button lock picks would have worked i swear.

Unfortunately I also noticed we had all been injected with something and we would have to identify what it was later. Well there was an enormous crash and some screams shortly after Andy opened our doors and low and behold Morty the meat popsicle.

Andy managed to stabilize him thank the gods before we continued on through the now rather empty corridors. We happened to find a bunch of bodies along the way and bumped into a survivor who Andy knocked out.

We eventually found our stuff inside a locked chest along with some other things we snagged with us. After stealthily making our way out we happened upon a cave where the traitor Mortdecai forever be his name damned struck me down with a blasted spell after missing the stalagmite creature, which I had previously identified as dangerous.

I need a bloody drink and a woman’s touch…

Drake’s Notes:
• Remember to omit the top secret parts (Mention of G.H.O.S.T and otherwise)
• Remember to berate Morty for risky fire manoeuvres, then buy him a drink.
• Remember to cheer up Traika if we ever get out of this hellhole
• Remember to talk to Andy about positioning and unit tactics he seems to get hurt quite alot.
• Remember to identify what we have been injected with once we return to base

Party Members:

Andy: Cheerful monk who has spent most of his life in the temple by the account he gave me, I hope to ask about his temple order in the nearby future so I can have notes for my book.

Traika: Azad Clanswoman she seems nice enough although her clansmen were not inclined to share their culture with me when I asked. I will try a secondary approach to gathering information regarding Azad tribal rituals.

Mortdecai: Megalomaniac with a glimmer of sadness in his eyes, probably keeping his ill fate bottled up inside him. Has also shot me once by mistake, although I think he was genuinely sorry.
