Plot wise, the group woke up, with no memories of the last 3 months. There were tubes dripping a bitter green liquid into their mouths and they were dressed in basic tunics. After finding their bags with a strange uniquely colored orb containing their equipment, the room they were sealed into lurched and slid down a cliff face as the tower itself collapsed. Climbing out of the rubble, they we’re approached by a shadowy figure coming out of the nearby woods. A Succubus, called Kioko, claimed the team work for her, gathering artifacts of great power connected to each orb. They re-signed their contracts in blood & heard the fighting from the top of the mesa. They traveled up to find the ruins of a fort, still ablaze from the battle, the destroyed buildings completely void of anyone alive… or dead. No bodies. Blood, but no bodies. The group also noticed a symbol that seemed to be appearing in the debris. They also detected that they were being watched. They jumped the voyeur, which turned out to be a Kobold, named Kippy, that was member of their team before their mind wipe. He informed them that he tracked them to this cell of the Aborators. A cult of warped arcanists trying to ‘improve’ the world through their augmentations. They warp themselves and often create twisted ‘experiments’ (aboration creatures) that are set loose upon the world. This fort was destroyed by a zealot religion known as the Purifiers (they eliminate anything unnatural. Be it undead, aborations, or even beings from other worlds/realms/planes.). The group allowed Kippy to travel with them to the nearest town where they rested. Kioko appeared to the group again, advising there was an artifact to the southeast, in a tomb. As they traveled SE, they we’re attacked by Aborations, however, they realized that the creatures were not trying to kill them, but to capture them. The creatures also bore the sigil of the Aborators.
