Burial Mounds Investigation, Part 2 – Agents of B.E.A.R.D. 028

Streamed on January 21st, 2023

This episode was brought to you buy our Bearded Frens on Patreon, like Joe, Bart, and Sir Vyper.

The Assignment

Burial mounds were located a few hours northeast of Sydund. Investigate what is there and document anything you find for the Records Guild. Clear out any undead so that a team of archaeologists can go in and study them.

Reward: 50gp/per person/per mound opened up and cleared.

Mission Summary

  • After the party returned, the Adventurers Guild in Sydund and the Records Guild renegotiated the contract and required some training on opening up crypts. However, because that would take some time, as well as the amount of mounds to explore in total, Hovedstad and Whitmor shipped some more bodies to help.
  • This involved 7 days of downtime for Altath, Moira, and Svamp. 1 day of downtime for Zilis, and 24 days of downtime for Skilly.
  • During that downtime, the group learned about what was going on in Camp Klitterne, a lost ship at sea near the Dead Wood in Nordland, the heavy interest of the Bearded Jungle, and Moira was approached by an old coworker.
  • Once at the mounds, they cleared out three. They found some artifacts, but nothing worth taking for themselves. They also saw indications that both Dragonborn and Elves were buried here. And Svamp made the connection that Undead seem to occur in areas that have been desecrated. They did not run into any Undead this time around.
  • One of the artifacts they did find was a small vase with a scene painted on it that resembled the coastline between the now-desert and Storm Island. But, it was filled with trees and life. Maybe an old city?
