Captain Tahlia Winters, Sweetpea, Stark, Trask and Claude travelled to Geb’s rest (a run down town on the edge of the mana wastes) to find Pathfinder Rijana and recover her journals. Rijana was attempting to find a way to restore life and magic to the inhospitable and deadly mana wastes. The party find the town deserted apart from two Bone Devils and their undead minions: scouts from a ancient army. After defeating one of the devils (toad in a bag) and forcing the other flee, they find Rijana’s desiccated corpse and the first of her Journals. Voruk, having overslept, arrives after the battle. Trask stays in the town to look after the animals and livestock. The party journeys into the deadly mana wastes, where magic doesn’t work, or surges unpredictably, and strange anti-magic beasts hunt foolish travellers, in search of Rijana’s campsite and her other journals. Enacting a ritual the find themselves in a pocket dimension, where it is always twilight, but the ruins of ancient Geb are strangely still intact. Sweetpea leaves his trusty horse behind in the mana wastes. They party find an ancient army in stasis… However, a strange priest is slowly reanimating the army:- a battle ensues and the priest and his undead scouts are defeated. Following the road back to Geb’s Rest, they discover the city restored to it former glory, and guarded by a small army of undead. Another priest is slowly sacrificing the townfolk for a strange (and unsuccessful) ritual. Tahalia moves ahead to scout, while Sweet pea makes a frontal assault and an epic running battle ensues as they work their way around the icewalls and undead to fight two Bone Devils. Tahlia manages to sneak up on the priest and prevent him from sacrificing the remaining townsfolk. The battle is bloody and deadly. Voruk was slain before the priest and his bone devils are killed. The last journal is found in the possession of one of the Bone Devils. Voruk was raised using a scroll.
The majority of the Citizens at Geb’s Rest (Bitter End) are returned to the material plane alive. The Bone Devil lead invasion of Golarion is averted. However, an ancient army still awaits for orders for an ancient war.
