Session 47 - "Does anyone else just wanna like, go home? This place is fucked."

Our intrepid crew enter Dwimmermount, break into the biggest treasure vault on the first level, clear it out, then spend the next couple of weeks travelling around and going to an end-of-month markets and generally having a good time.
But there was also an old map showing a dam beneath which a dying culture locked their old and ancient treasures and assuredly incredible wealth.
Obviously, they followed. 
They arrived in the middle of a humanitarian disaster. Flood waters everywhere, people trying to save their kids, everything was horrible. And that's basically where we ended for the night!

For all - Despite having slightly fewer people due to the long weekend, we're going to have a whole bunch of people coming back next week. But! A light shines in the darkness! 
Josh from last week says he's happy to run a game, so he'll bring stuff next week.

For Clerics - Oli's had a rad idea, especially since we've got a few different Clerics going at the moment. 
You can Bless some sort of holy trinket and give it to someone who believes in your god. Cast Bless on the thing on a Sunday and it lasts all week.
His one is going to give +1 to hit with crossbows if the bearer is an adherent of the Crossbow God.
What your own holy charm thing does is up to you! But it should be related to your deity somehow and at that sort of general power level.
Since you all just levelled up, I'm totally just going to say that this is something Clerics can do once they reach level 2.

For potential god-cult converts - What's that? You're going to wear like 5 of these charms and just change what deity you worship on the fly in to activate different bonuses? 
If you swap deities you can never gain the benefits of the old god's charm ever again, even if you swap back.

For mad inventors - Last session Svalborg started planning a bunch of mad inventions. But how will we know if they work?! Basically roll Tinkering (or the Tinkering of the guy who made it) every time you try to use it and if it succeeds then it works!

For sneaky people - Related to the last thing, you roll your own Stealth checks now. Instead of rolling it when you start sneaking, roll it whenever you might be discovered. OooOOOoOooo.

Quests and Rumours:
- Map writing translated from Latin: 
"There is a kingdom of unspeakable wealth that
trades in dark wonders, secrets and death. And many of the strange
things now on earth are theirs. They draw their power and magic
from a place, and guard it fiercely against all. Now, out of spite
as their kingdom slowly dies, they hide their treasure
palace in the lake, and set there: sleepless and indestructible guards.
All know where it is, on the Lock, upriver of Carrowcester.
No-one who goes there has ever come back.”
- The undead cannot cross running water, we are safe here across the River Deeprush.
Weapons are outlawed in Edge save for among the upper classes.
- There are markets held in Breasdon every month. While you can buy and sell at excellent prices, the merchants serve a darker power.
- The towns on either end of the Mendicant Road from Gush to the Twinned Cities are starting to charge a toll, the bastards.
- There are all these super hot prostitutes in Edge, but nobody knows where they came from.
- Summer has meant that wolves are less aggressive in the mountains, but stranger and more dangerous things can be found in those peaks.
- Death Knights are attacking Moondin. Good luck to them! I hope they all just wipe each other out.
