Concerned that not following Kol into the Barrows would result in never being able to find him again the party bravely ( for the most part ) moved in to the wreckage that made by the night of golden skies. The Blood trail being left by Kol came to a quick end where evidence of healing potions were used as well as a short note asking the party to “Fak aff”
The trail at this point became harder to follow but Reginald was able to sniff him out and keep pace. This unfortunately resulted in the party moving into a wave a week undead moving through the streets. these skeleton were also being followed by a much larger creature that seemed to be using the skeletons to build up its body. The party attacked this creature only to find that it was fiercer then though and not worth the efforts to destroy. they fled the area in hopes to find Kol’s trail again.
After a some hours of looking Kol’s train was found and followed into a small chapel. when moving from the main hall in an anti-chamber Kol triggered a trap causing a small collapse separating the party. Kol Attack Widget and Reginald while they were split from the rest of the party. It was a drawn out and brutal fight which ended in Widgets defeat. The Gnome was Slain and left for the party to find as warning. Kol fled the area to lick his wounds and plan for the next confrontation.
Having received Widget body the party came across some strange crows wearing masks, one leather and one porcine. The party tried to speak with them bit found language to be an issue. Unable to understand the party but still curious as to their requests the crows used a soothing song to control the party and make them walk to where Priest from the Island of Dust and Ash were gathered with a number of Psychopomps. These Catrinas were able to communicant telepathically with the party. Though unable to Widget they offered to take his body back to the island so that it could be put to a proper rest.
The party once again started after Kol. Having lost Kol and the parties best tracker (Reginald) finding the trail proved more difficult than before. While moving through a set of ruins they came across what seemed to be a hiding place for someone. There was a bed and fire pit along with a few meager items. Among the items was a pendent that has once belonged to Milah’s mother. She took it, confused as to how it came to be in this place and what its existence might mean.
After this the party found Kol’s trail and followed him into an old bath house. Kol, not keen on fighting the whole party, woke up a Fleshy, blood hunger blob that had grown in the center pool. With each hit the creature grew greater in size and risked overwhelming the party but in the end the damage they could do outpaced its growth and the creature died.
Kol was proving to be a huge pain in everyone side by this point as they started to hunt him once again. After some time the group came upon a strange seen. A human man, probable in his mid 40’s was sitting at a ruines café chatting with someone ( something?) just out of sight in the shadows. A Women, Obviously an Imperial Magus watching over them. After brief exchange they realized that this was the same Man they has fenced a item too with the aid of the walker brothers several weeks ago. He was now properly Introduced as Meradoth Von Rushak. This being the 3rd time this group has crossed Rushak’s path he decided there might be more to this then chance and offered them the help of his aid Vesper Destern, in their hunt for Kol.
Kol was finally tracked into an old church and trapped in the back of it. Determined to make a final stand he engaged the party. His first at was to disable Milah then move in to attack Lamont. It was around this time that two of the churches Side doors burst in and an gang of ghouls and huecuva attacked.
Kol was quick to offer up a short truce to deal with the undead and with little disagreement from the party, he declared it a done deal. Though Kol was good to his word and fought the creatures until they were all vanquished he did take that opportunity to maneuver himself to and exit so that when the last of the undead dropped he was able to get out.
This didn’t keep the party from continuing the hunt. This time though the tracking was hard nothing came between them and there quarry. The found Kol in an old courthouse, tired but ready for them. Kol lured the party forward which wasn’t hard as Lamont was “Done with this shit” and charged. Milah moved into back up Lamont. Kol, with a smile and coy remark, “ Do you know what the best traps are ? The ones that include yourself” and triggered a explosion on the ceiling and caused a collapse. Milah and Kol were quick enough to escape the debris but Lamont was buried in it. From there things progressed poorly for Kol and he was swiftly defeated.
When Kol woke up he found himself tied to a chair and the last rays of daylight slipping out of the sky. He tried to trick the party into thinking he has escaped with a brooch of Vanishing but it proved less then effective. The party finally got the information from him and disruption turned to what to do with him. A question that Lamont was quick to answer. He declared Kol a murdered and a crook with a soul and black as the coming night. An true example of all that ate away at the cities underbelly. With that, he landed his axe deep in Kols body. After a quiet moment, Lamont declared that he had no guilt with this action and he kicked the body off of his weapon, turned and marched out of the building.
