Valahn

Questing for questions

You reach the outside of a three level hostle of a building. the walls of the building give the impression of an errie aura in the light of the night sky. The windows glow with a dim redish glow from within.
Robyn of the Meadows we made it
Robyn of the Meadows just in time too i do not think we have much of that sleeping drug left
Draven Ashwood I can only imagine what awaits us inside.
Robyn of the Meadows oh you have no idea
Elyon Longbow Finally. I don’t think my ribs could take any more slamming into buildings.
Robyn of the Meadows most of our cast can’t ever afford to come here
Robyn of the Meadows after you
Draven Ashwood steps forward to the door and raises his fist to rap unpon the door pauseing a moment looking from Elyon and Robyn
Elyon Longbow nods assuringly…
Elyon Longbow I hope this goes well.
Robyn of the Meadows open it this is not a house
Robyn of the Meadows i do not want to see those guards mood when they awake
Draven Ashwood shrugs and opens it the door waking in first
Campaign saved.
Upon opening the door you quickly notice the plush red interior. the floors are covered with a shaggy scarlett field of carpet. and large pillows strewn against every wall. across from the entrance a young maiden scantly dressed bid you to hurry in.
Young maiden Please, enter quickly you have been expected.
Draven Ashwood steps towards the madian quickly look back to ensure his partners are close behind
Elyon Longbow moves in right behind Draven..
Elyon Longbow Thank you. Alvestia is expecting us?
courtisan close in tow
courtisan yes, you will understand more when you see her
courtisan and
courtisan Yes, i know you been through a lot to get here and yes our lady will see you, please follow me.
Elyon Longbow follows her, looking a little sheepishly…
Courtisan All your questions will be answered in time… stay close and mind not what you may see.
Draven Ashwood nods while listening to the courtisian and follows close behind
As you walk behind the young courtisan, you notice the walls are drapped with fine red linens occasionally through wich you can see through an opening women in acts of pleasuring a client in various ways. some appear to be pleasuring themselves alone. Sounds of rapture, moaning and exhaling can be heard throughout the building. the scent of jasmine and lavender waft through the air making you feel an uneasy relaxed feeling.
Draven Ashwood raises an eyebrow and looks at Elyon
The young courtisan leads you to a small room in which rest a round table of heavy wood. charts of the stars and occult diagrams line the walls on all sides of you.
Elyon Longbow shrugs…
Seated oposite the entrance is seated a beautifull Elf woman, her black hair long and flowing, her features gracefull and alluring. The candle light dances off the fine features of her face. adding to the mystery of her knowlege.
Draven Ashwood Need a job, Robyn?
Campaign saved.
Robyn of the Meadows shh show respect here
Alvastia Please gentlemen take a seat.
Elyon Longbow pulls up the nearest chair and does as he’s told.
Elyon Longbow Thank you.
Draven Ashwood nods and has a seat looking upon the woman
Elyon Longbow Do you… do you know why we’re here?

Alvastia the courtisan i supose you have many questions layered upon questions
Alvastia the courtisan i also supose you know who i am
Alvastia the courtisan and maybe further how i may be able to help you
Elyon Longbow Aye, we have been instructed. I suppose I could start with the simplest question: can you tell us who Elack Vamou is?
Draven Ashwood stares at the woman for a few moments as she speaks his expression one of no emoation " Secondly, my friend here has become ill and we would like to know if you know of a way to cute him"
Alvastia the courtisan I have hear of vamou
Campaign saved.
Alvastia the courtisan it was a vamou that founded the order of Brall

Alvastia the courtisan i must say i find it … pleasing
Elyon Longbow Would you have any idea what was locked beneath the priory, 30 miles from here?
Draven Ashwood glances back to the rooms behind him and then back to her " Pleaseing seems to be your business"

Alvastia the courtisan where did you get it?
Elyon Longbow We found it in the priory, 30 miles from here. It was lying there amidsts the carnage. One of the priests must have had it in their posession.
Draven Ashwood reaches down and grabs Robyn’s ancle and lifting her leg into the air " We also found these shoes "
Alvastia the courtisan this sword was forges by Brall
Alvastia the courtisan or so it is said
Alvastia the courtisan for the very curse you suffer

Alvastia the courtisan to your will
Campaign saved.
Alvastia the courtisan lol not at all
Alvastia the courtisan that sword is a gift
Alvastia the courtisan if you were punished that sword would not be in your possession

Alvastia the courtisan that sword becomes but a bonus to the powerfull weapon that you cwn attain to
Alvastia the courtisan can^
Elyon Longbow If I may, I have a question about an old text we came across. Some of the text goes like thi: “A hero’s frame hidss a coward’s shame and so unravels the world”…
Elyon Longbow The rest of the text is encrypted. Would you know what it means, or where we can find the key to decipher it?
Alvastia the courtisan well does that not have to do with why you are here?
Alvastia the courtisan what is it you seek

Jafty (Draven Ashwood) I guess so lol…Well I did anyways
Campaign saved.
Mellock (Elyon Longbow) I was getting there with my next question,I just thought I’d go slowly, question by question :p
hass np
Alvastia the courtisan these things you speak of are long before me
Elyon Longbow Years ago, Ival Hagit set out to search for an oracle, far South. All we know is that he set out in the direction of Yashgar. Would you know of what he spoke?
Alvastia the courtisan yes i knew or him
Alvastia the courtisan disapeared
Alvastia the courtisan he sought hard for the oracle
Alvastia the courtisan the oracle was used by the my people to stem the human revolution
Alvastia the courtisan i know not though where it is…
Elyon Longbow Not even a rumour? Not even point us in the right direction?
Campaign saved.
Alvastia the courtisan hmmm
Alvastia the courtisan are they ready oh great lua?
Elyon Longbow Please, I know we are asking much of you, but if things work out the way I envision them, the fate of Valahn may hang in the balance.
Alvastia the courtisan shall I ?
Alvastia the courtisan …
Alvastia we will ask the spirits and the Fae for the answers you seek
Elyon Longbow looks truly desperate…
Alvastia the courtisan mind you would you will witness is ageless
she produces a deck of cards from a black silk cloth, gently she shuffles the deck while whispering words of some long forgotten tongue. The candles about the room flicker and dim as she quietly chants.
her eyes close and her head rocks slowly ina rythmic motion. as he continues her whispers begin to sound disembodied and echo round the room as flashes and whisps of images move about the room as shadows. neither real yet challenging your senses as you witness their graceful travers about the darkness of the room.
she pulls a card from the deck then flips it face up in the middle of the table.
Alvastia The river within the dark womb of mother Valahn, there your path lies. Fraut with danger and trial vere not from the straight path for lost you will be surounded by death. be ever vigiant as the guardian awaits beyond the gates.
she then flips over three more cards
Alvastia Beyond lies the fallen, that which you seek. dark wisdom ment not for the likes of this world. bound to tell the truth. do not free the fallen make your query short and to the point. Even bound be wary as the fallen is older than even creation. and he may use the truth to your detriment.
Alvastia do not tarry as death and fire follow in your wake every seeking to usurp the light.
As she says the word “light” ther shadows fade and the candles flicker once again but this time raising their incandences back to a natural level. Alvastia raises her haed.
Alvastia The spirits have spoken…
She then takes a deep breath and looks at you all.
Campaign saved.
Elyon Longbow The… river within the dark womb of Valahn?
Elyon Longbow looks more than a little confused as he quizically stares at Draven…
Alvastia Shall I expand on what was shown to you this evening or do you feel you have what you came for?
Draven Ashwood looks back at Elyon then to Alvasita " Thank you for your help. We may have to spend some time doing research on these things. I’m not from this land and do not know it wll"
Elyon Longbow If you be be so kind as to expand on it, we would be grateful.
Draven Ashwood glances back and elbow nudges Robyn " wake up"
Alvastia the courtisan you friend there seems to think otherwise
Alvastia the courtisan i can help
Alvastia the courtisan while i am eld
Alvastia the courtisan i too care for this world
Draven Ashwood You’re…. an elder?
Alvastia the courtisan eld
Alvastia Old? … you fellows really know how to make a lady feel good. hahaha. Alas yes I’m old . I’m of the Eld and lived to see man free themselves from the bondage our kind inflicted upon them. then drive our kind from Kalhinar.
Campaign saved.
Alvastia the courtisan you are descended of the eld
Alvastia the courtisan now shall i expand on the word of the spirits?
Draven Ashwood The first blood of elf seem to have an of opression. To man kind, and even the blood of my tribe
Alvastia the courtisan sigh yes
Alvastia you see it was a was not that simple for me as I loved a man. To sacrifice my cast among the Eld and betray my own people and suffer for it is a price that I would pay time and again for the precious few moments….
Alvastia the courtisan shal i expand on the word of the spirits?
Elyon Longbow Yes please, if you will.
Alvastia The moon can be many things but here it is the dark places, places that most fear to go. Also in this case it can mean only one thing … underground.
Alvastia Where it is, that’s the question, however I can offer insight on that matter as well unless you feel my help is not further needed.
Elyon Longbow We would be grateful for any help you can offer us.
Alvastia Well I have been here in Rhodec sonce it’s very founding. “sigh”… when the short ears vanquished the eld it was here that they formed their first human kingdom. Now Ival Hagit was from Rashvor which if he were to cross the Yashgar range the only place he could have found would have been Rhodec.
Campaign saved.
Alvastia the courtisan does that make any sense?
Alvastia the courtisan well quiet ones patient children
Elyon Longbow You mean, the place we seek is here in Rhodec?
Alvastia the courtisan I like that
Alvastia the courtisan would have to be
Alvastia This city is much older than it’s human founding ruins built upon ruins. The eld once used it to burry our dead… long before my time, after the war of creation many eld who still held to the fae lended chaos to all valahn. even attempting to bring the old dark fae back. these foulers through their dark magics… rahter like that which you now face found ways to rend the veils thin enough to allow the dark to influence this world. Plague tore through the lands Rhodec was not spared the sickness…
Alvastia The bodies rotted in the streets aiding the spread of the taint, to combat the problem many now rest below us now. I will no longer bor you with history lessons, if the oracle is here then it would have been hidden below us and I know that the oldest part of Rhodec lie no more than a few streets from here… The flooded ruins.
Alvastia At Rhodec’s founding as a human city the eld temple was destroyed and the old chapple was raised to allthe gods, needless to say the gods priesthoods were quick to outgrow the chapple… an old thelmatic artificer lives there now. He over sees the grounds. Nice enough fellow but a word of warning, He is …um … as you say …A rather interesting personality.
Jafty (Draven Ashwood) Sorry far behind because of my wife
hass we will wait
hass say when
Jafty (Draven Ashwood) she woke up and desided to be an ass lol
Campaign saved.
hass just say when and i’ll continue
Jafty (Draven Ashwood) reaDY
Robyn of the Meadows so we have a good lead, what do you guys think?
Campaign saved.
Mellock (Elyon Longbow) Yeah, I think we can go and explore the old ruins.
Draven Ashwood nods while listening to Alvasita and glances at Robyn " I’d like to know where about the ruins are"
Alvastia the courtisan i’ll grant you pass to the district
Alvastia the courtisan however i recommend you not go the way you came
Alvastia the courtisan as i said the ruins are but a few street from this very spot
Draven Ashwood Since we wil be going into the unknown like this, I would think we should go and get some equipment. We don’t want to be unprepared.
Elyon Longbow With a pass to the district, we could go there easily.
Robyn of the Meadows by the first chapple, i know where that is
Elyon Longbow Aye, some supplies would come in handy. And we had better let brother Vahn know where we are as well.
Alvastia the courtisan as i also said the artificer lives there

Draven Ashwood cracks a thin grin " Why do you seem so surprised?"
Campaign saved.
Brother Vahn: I was assembling these men as re-enforcments to aid you. Atulah brought me word of your passing I became distressed when she told me of the captain not meeting her on her rounds to blacken hill….Then after three days and no sign of your return I knew that something fouls must have transpired.
Elyon Longbow: We have been beset by enemies from the moment we started. We have some things for you, though.
Brother Vahn: Lets not speak of such matters here, follow me to the temple and you can freshen up and brief me there.
Elyon Longbow gives the man a weary nod and follows along after him…
Draven Ashwood diggs in his backpack for a couple moments. He pulls out the necklace with the symbol on it. " Do you know of this symbol?"
Draven Ashwood Nods and follows
Brother Vahn: please we know not who has eyes or ears out here
Brother Vahn: we will speak at the temple

Robyn of the Meadows: thanks elyon
Your tour through the city seems long as the time passes.The buildings in the temple district are tightly packed together on the streets the flora and funa are well manicured and though the building seem old, their aged apearance adds to their charm. Brother Vahn Begins pointing out buldings of note.
Brother Vahn: There is the the temple of Jezal, I beleive he is called Talisahn in your native tongues. Patron of soldires on the field of battle.
Campaign saved.
The temple he points to is stout with five red minurets, four rising from each corner and one taller on rotruding from its center.
Brother Vahn: And other there is Veasia, I beleive that is Feadah to you. Some time after this ordeal is delt with you’ll want to make an offering and …uh enjoy the services of her preistesses.
Brother Vahn winks and cracks an ever slight smile.
Draven Ashwood raises an eyebrow at Brother Vahn
Robyn of the Meadows: men, hrmph
After some time he stops!
Brother Vahn: Here we are gentlemen. The temple of Brall, you may call him by your native language if it so pleases you. Soluhn, I always did like the sound of his name in the elvish dielect.
You now stand before the Temple of Bral, The building is round with a gold colored dome that shimmers in the mid morning light. The stout hardy construction give the building the apearance of being an impenitrable fortress.l
Brother Vahn: i do hope you enjoyed the little tour
Brother Vahn: Rhodec is a wonder
Draven Ashwood stand before the temple his face clear of all emotions. the wind blws his jet black hair about which seems to be the only expression about him
Brother Vahn leads you straight in to a banquet hall where food seems to already be prepared.
Brother Vahn: Please have a seat and dine, I know you all must be hungry after such a journey.
Draven Ashwood: Far different than hollowed out rock houses
Campaign saved.
Brother Vahn: true but humility of those rocks are a blessing in and of themselves
Draven Ashwood looks to Brother Vahn, unsure if he actually knows from where Draven comes from.
GM: Brother Vahn allows you to Eat and sits quietly

Draven Ashwood: I need a real name for my elf sub race. Can you help me make one?

Atuhla: of coarse, you are hear are you not
Elyon Longbow: It’s good to see a familiar face. OUr journey was… eventful.
Atuhla smiles
Elyon Longbow: We knew it was trouble from the start. And we have much to tell you. When we knocked on the door, there was no answer, so we set out to investigate…
Brother Vahn: Altulah has long been a friend of the temple and she will open her services to you in the event that you will further serve Rhodecs needs
Elyon Longbow: The place was a massacre. We eventually came upon a dying captain Daleth, though.

Draven Ashwood: I believe Brall has come to expect some things of me.
Robyn of the Meadows: your deputies apreciate that i’m sure

Draven Ashwood: With my brother Elyon and Robyn, I believe we have just started to come to his will
Brother Vahn: what did you see at Blackenhill?
Elyon Longbow: We investigated the priory first, and found a massacre. We came upon a dying captain Daleth.
Brother Vahn apears sad
Draven Ashwood places the necklace on the table

Elyon Longbow motions towards the necklace Draven put on the table…
Brother Vahn: Are they mad?
Elyon Longbow: We were instructed to return with a small cylinder from beneath the sealstone underneath the priory, and we have done so.
Brother Vahn: as for elack, there re ledgends i’m quite concerned over
Brother Vahn: what of the ashes?
Elyon Longbow: Ah yes. I was justr getting to that. On the way back, we were ambushed by Elack and this cult, who were after the ashes. Thankfully, we escaped with those, too, and have them with us.
Brother Vahn: I thank you for your loyalty
Brother Vahn: please i’ll hide the ashes…
Brother Vahn: lets sett this cylinder
Elyon Longbow: Blacke, hill, however, is no more, I’m afraid.
Elyon Longbow: We only barely escaped with our lives. The place is now covered in darkness.
Brother Vahn: We heard the ground shake from here
Draven Ashwood: Elack is a creature that is of rat and of man…He has bitten Elyon, and I would like to have someone make sure elyon isn’t infected.
Elyon Longbow looks ashamed at the mention of his wound…
Brother Vahn: with the weakening of the hills blessings the souls are free creating another obsticle
Elyon Longbow: This is true… in our struggle with Elack, I was bitten.
Brother Vahn: yes, yes….
Atuhla: let me see
Atuhla: ahhh yes

Brother Vahn: I see something has effected you both
Elyon Longbow: Aye, while I may have been adversely infected by this… thing, Draven here seems to have been called by Brall himself.
Atuhla: ahhh look at the wound ….ha lycan
Atuhla covers her mouth
Brother Vahn: is that so?
Draven Ashwood looks at Atuhla with an expression of worry " What can you do about this?"
Atuhla: nothing i’m afraid, this is beyond my abilities
Draven Ashwood looks to brother vahn " We’re going to need your help in this matter "
Brother Vahn: Draven I’m afriad you are bound to this situation as well
Brother Vahn: brall does not choose lightly
Draven Ashwood: Are you saying I’m also infected?

Brother Vahn: haha infected?
Brother Vahn: the children of the eld have a funny way of perceiving a blessing
Brother Vahn: hum that sword
Brother Vahn: elyon at first i would have dyned to beleive you cursed
Brother Vahn: that sword
Elyon Longbow: Elack and his rat-kin seemed to hate it with a passion…
Elyon Longbow: Do you know of it?
Brother Vahn: it is starting to make sense
Brother Vahn: but it still is not all clear
Brother Vahn: lets see what the cylinder reveals
Brother vahn takes the object, then holds it up before his face. He then closesd his eyes and begins saying arcane words in a low humming tone while gesturing symbols with his free hand.
the object radiates a blue glow that slowly gets so bright that you can nolonger see the object itself…
The with a sudden flsh of blue brilliance the object disappears and Brother Vahn is left holding a very ancient gnarled scroll.
He opens the scroll and begins reading out load …
A heros frame Hides a coward shame and so unravels the world.
Brother Vahn: The rest is a dielect which has not seen the light of Valahn in near two thousand years. It seems to be a Cipher and an incomplete one at that…
Brother Vahn: I’m afaid I can not read it … not without the key. and as for the strange verse I know not what it references.
Brother Vahn: well we have an idea what the cult is after
Elyon Longbow: It seems that fate has bound the strands of our future together… What can we do to help?
Brother Vahn: we need to know what elack or who elack is
Campaign saved.
Draven Ashwood: I’m more than happy to pay anohter visit to Elack
Brother Vahn: we have one now cursed and the other blessed
Brother Vahn: a mystery scroll
Brother Vahn: a lot of questions
Brother Vahn: Follow me.
Draven Ashwood stands and follows Brother Vahn
Elyon Longbow gets up, swallows a last mouthful , and trots after the others..
he leads you down a long ornate hall to an open room lined with thousands shelves stuffed with books and scolls. In the center os the room is a long wood table with lite candles with glass covers every 10’ on the table. Chairs for reading line boths sides of the tabel.
He begins grabbing books and scolls and takes them to the table. the books are definatly old and a coat of dust is wafts into the air as he drops the books down onto the table. he then opens one and peers into it. then stops and looks at you.
Brother Vahn: Please assist me, look for anything that may provide answers concerning the scroll you have braught me.
Robyn of the Meadows picks upa book and starts looking at pictures
Elyon Longbow lets the pages fly by as he collects his memories…
Robyn of the Meadows: wish i could read
Draven Ashwood nods his head and begins looking through the books in the same general area
Robyn of the Meadows: [3d6 = 5]
[] Draven Ashwood: You find an interesting passes in one of the old tombs.
[] Draven Ashwood: There are tales of previous kings, Kings of elder days… when your kind ruled all valahn. Tales of the kings keeping some such oracle. In later days when man rebeled angainst the eld kings they did so by talking control over the oracle. thus using its power and binding it to their will…The Oracle granted the first heros of men an all knowing power over the enemy. I know not why it was hidden I guess the first kings of man were afraid of its power falling back into the eld hands.
[] Draven Ashwood: My destiny is set I will be a wealthy man when I return for I know where the oracle is and I’ll set out at the first of the melting of the snow when crossing yashgar will pose the least resistance to my journey south…Ival Hagit
Draven Ashwood: Brother Vahn, I believe I have found somthing of interest.
Brother Vahn: what is it?
Draven Ashwood begins to read aloud
Campaign saved.
Brother Vahn: ahh
There are tales of previous kings, Kings of elder days… when your kind ruled all valahn. Tales of the kings keeping some such oracle. In later days when man rebeled angainst the eld kings they did so by talking control over the oracle. thus using its power and binding it to their will…The Oracle granted the first heros of men an all knowing power over the enemy. I know not why it was hidden I guess the first kings of man were afraid of its power falling back into the eld hands.
My destiny is set I will be a wealthy man when I return for I know where the oracle is and I’ll set out at the first of the melting of the snow when crossing yashgar will pose the least resistance to my journey south…Ival Hagit
Jafty (Draven Ashwood): Thanks that would have taken forever to type
hass: lol
Brother Vahn: Hmmm, Normally I do not like the idea of chasing fantasy tales. But to many of the living elds speak of the oracle and its theft by man. I know one person, an ….somewhat an oracle herself.
Brother Vahn: are you up for another adventure my young elven bretheren?
Elyon Longbow: Aye… I, for one, have some unfinished business with Elack.
Brother Vahn: and what of you draven< you seek answers too?
Jafty (Draven Ashwood): Sorry, let me catch up. I got a phone call
Campaign saved.
Brother Vahn: ok
Draven Ashwood nods his head in agreement with Elyon " I’m far from finished. I will full fill the calling of Brall, but I would like to make sure Elack meets his end sooner than later"
Brother Vahn: You must goto the temple of Lua and consult Alvastia. which poses a problem unto itself as she sees no one. She may not even be alive as she is as old as that tomb if not older. if she is alive still she will be at her home at Divne’s in the noble dustrict. this may pose another problem as you will not have access to that district.
Brother Vahn: I need not explain that we must to be descrete here. so you will want to sneak past any city patrols. I do not wish to tip off any one as to our next move by requisitioning a pass.
Brother Vahn: Do what you must, to persuade the preistesses that you need to see Alvestia. Be very careful not to reveal to much we do not yet know who we can trust.
Brother Vahn: Go prepair yourselves. And again you will be well compensated for your service to Rhodec and the gods of creations.and may the scales of Brall fall in your favor…always.
Atuhla: this may be of help

Brother Vahn: ok Robyn is familiar with the city
Campaign saved.
Brother Vahn: by day we will be seen
Robyn of the Meadows: night is the only way
Draven Ashwood: I believe I might have some skills that would lend them selfs to this tasks as well
Jafty (Draven Ashwood): Provided I can make good die rolls
Elyon Longbow: Aye, I have seen your illusions… they would be a good addition to our skills…
Robyn of the Meadows: good we can reinforce them with the cover of night
Robyn of the Meadows: and this sleeping agent
Brother Vahn: is there anything you need take care of before the night comes?
Draven Ashwood: We should rest up… We all need it.
Elyon Longbow: Aye, some rest would be nice… Also, I wonder if there would be any chance to procure a ring with a small neddle attached to it… like a poisoning ring. Perhaps it would come in handy applying the sleeping agent.
Mellock (Elyon Longbow): *needle
Draven Ashwood: Lets visit a local jewelar
Brother Vahn: hmm you maybe able to procure one at market
Elyon Longbow: Ah, perhaps we can stop by Lizbeth’s… She seemed to have an endless array of useful items.
Robyn of the Meadows: what about our simple dagger?
Campaign saved.
Brother Vahn: should work fine so long as skill is broken and the cut is none leathal
Elyon Longbow: I am most tired though, and I would rather not be seen purchasing such an item. Is there a way to have this item procured while we rest,and have it delivered by one of the brethren of Brall?
Draven Ashwood: At night the guards will be tired and hungry.. we can dress as local food merchants, and the guards might be more than willing to purchace some cheap tastty laced food
Brother Vahn: we can not introduce any others to our plans
Brother Vahn: though i can have the item procured
Elyon Longbow: That would be most kind of you.
Elyon Longbow: I believe we shall retire to our quarters then?
Draven Ashwood stands and nods his head to Brother Vahn. " Thank you for all your kindness. We will rest now"
GM: you have no hand to hand skills so any move with the ring will be at dx
Elyon Longbow: And I will get up a little earlier to practice this sneaking around. A little practice won’t hurt, methinks.
Brother Vahn: ok you may rest here

Robyn of the Meadows: vahn left you thiis
Robyn of the Meadows hand elyoin the ring
Elyon Longbow: My thanks. I hope it won’t be necessary, but if it comes in handy, it will be money well spent.
Draven Ashwood wakes up and readies all of his belongings
Robyn: I know the best way into the noble’s district of the city. It is not to far from here and is usually the least guarded.
Elyon Longbow dips the needle in the sleeping agant and slips it on his finger. Then he starts gathering things and looks prepared for a night of adventuring…
Robyn of the Meadows: i already coated my dagger
Elyon Longbow: The less guards, the better. Lead on!
Robyn of the Meadows: what is your chosen weapon draven?
Elyon Longbow: Aye, my sword will have a dose of it as well.
Elyon Longbow puts the tips of a few arrows in th jar as well…
Draven Ashwood: I’ll be useing my knifes, so we better coat them all.

Draven Ashwood coats all of his knifes with the sleep agaent
Robyn of the Meadows: we ready?
Campaign saved.
Draven Ashwood: Yes, ready.
Robyn leads you westward through the city and across the temple district. the city in the evening seems alive with wandering people, drunks returning home after to much drink and merry making. The hues of night grey and flickering talow lamps makes the city feel warm with a new type of life that you have yet seen.
Her path takes you through many dark alley ways and smaller streets less traveled by the common folk. the only life seen within the dark streets is the occasional beggar searching the backalleys for a place outside the common district for a night’s rest.
You can tell that you must be getting close, as the Palace of stars on the mount seems to loom over your actions larger and larger.
Robyn: Here we are…
Elyon Longbow looks around, scanning the place for natural hiding places…
Elyon Longbow: Any guards nearby?
Draven Ashwood also inspects the area around him. Look for guads or anyone that might witness their actions
Robyn of the Meadows: one sec
Draven Ashwood: There is somthing comforting about the dark underbelly of this town. I can’t put my finger on it.
Robyn points out of the alley way across the main fairway to a wooden bridge that spans one of the cities greater tributaries. before the bride is seated two armed city guards. deep in conversation.
Guard 1: I tell you the Hair on her legs was longer than the hair on my daughter’s head. when I saw that I had to tell her then that I was in love!
Guard 2: Hmph, I think you spent far to much time at the Ungar outpost. Now those women of Divine’s….wooee hoe hoe!
Guard 1: I don’t get it, those women are far to fragile. I’d break em in half is i could even aford to get through the door….
Robyn of the Meadows whispers

Draven Ashwood considers the area around them for a few moments
Draven Ashwood whispers " we don’g want to have combat with these men"
Elyon Longbow (whispering): can we create a distraction for them, luring htem away?
Robyn of the Meadows: maybe sounds good what you have planned?
Elyon Longbow: I was thinking perhaps one of Draven’s illusions may do the trick?
Draven Ashwood (I): believe I have an idea… I can set an illusionary flame to a surrounding building.
Robyn of the Meadows: ok
Elyon Longbow: If it’s not too nearby. We don’t want to attract other guards when we try to sneak out again.

Robyn: we must be very careful from this point on. or we will be found by the patrols. We really should take the high ground. get a jump on any spotters.

Elyon Longbow: I think they’re far enough away. Let’s get out of here before they return.
Robyn of the Meadows: what say you draven?

Draven Ashwood uses the compass to indicate the correct direction " This way.. and quickly"
Elyon Longbow hurriedly follows after Draven…
the compass indicates north as the direction the enemy walked
→ Draven Ashwood: the stone must be south of you
Draven Ashwood: We travel east for a day and then back to the town. We have to make sure we make it back alive
Robyn of the Meadows: we staying off the road?

Elyon Longbow: And I fear they may be after us in greater numbers…
Campaign saved.

Robyn of the Meadows: the journey is harder by dark and no roads to pad your footsteps

Elyon Longbow: Indeed.
Draven Ashwood: I intend to, my friend.
Robyn: shal we continue?
Draven Ashwood nods
Elyon Longbow: We whall!
Elyon Longbow: *shall
The sky grows darker as the day wanes. In the distance along the road you travel you can hear a woman’s rasping voice lamenting over some dumb animal.
womans voice: You blasted no good vile beast, I’d have sold you to the last Orc band, had I not need of you. Maybe you’d make a good dinner tonight.
Eventually you see a cart in tow behind a pathetic looking donkey. The woman has not stopped lamenting and scolds at the poor beast.
Next to her sits a man who looks like it is trying to plug his ears. As they notice you, the man sits up and scowls.
Draven Ashwood a small grin can be detected on one side of his face
Atulah: Ahh fellow travelers. Tis getting a bit late hope to make the next Waystone before it gets to dark out. This road hasn’t seemed right in the last few days. But where are my manors. I am Atulah and this is my husband Dogahn

Draven Ashwood raises an eyebrow
atulah: the priests like to purchase my goods
atulah: but no one met me this day
atulah: i figure they are praying or some such ….
atulah: hey you can purchase the extra stock if you like
Draven Ashwood closes his eys and sighs “This is the kind of news I was expecting, somthings amis and that’s way its going…”
Draven Ashwood: What do you sell?
Elyon Longbow: Something’s rotten about all this, and I intend to get to the bottom of it.

atulah: you boys be careful and visit me in Rhodec
atulah: in
Elyon Longbow: Perhaps we’ll meet again! —Until then, fare you well!
Robyn: charming couple
Draven Ashwood: Let us keep moving
Elyon Longbow heads towards the priory…
The sky grows darker and rain begins to descend forming puddles on the gorund. the road is not a mixture of gravel and mud.
As you walk along in the rain you see a small trail leading off to the right through a grouping of trees. In front of the trail there is a signpost that has fallen into the mud.
Elyon Longbow grimaces as the water fills his boots, and pours down over him…
Robyn: this is the worst
Elyon Longbow stoops down to hoist up the waysign…
Elyon Longbow: Look at this here…
Elyon Longbow wipes off some mud from the sign…
Draven Ashwood looks as Elyon lifts the sign
Robyn: the sign bears a symbol of scales over an inverted black V
Elyon Vision: [3d6 = 14]
Draven Vision: [3d6 = 9]
Robyn Vision: [3d6 = 16]
-> Draven Ashwood: see something glimering in the mud
Draven Ashwood walks over and diggs in the mudd collcting somthing
Draven Ashwood: hmmm///
Elyon Longbow: Anything interesting?
-> Draven Ashwood: you find another medalion like the other but with writing and symbols
Robyn: what did you find there?
Draven Ashwood picks it up another metal just like the one picked from the old man’s pocket this time it has writing and symbols in it ” hmmm… look at this”
-> Elyon Longbow: lore
-> Elyon Longbow: The King of Worms… Azral, worship of Azral has not been known to be practiced since before the comming of mankind upon the lands of Belandir. Little is known of his myths other than he commanded legions of evil dead in an attempt to usurp the heavens.
Draven Ashwood: There is somthing we don’t know … Nothing is making sence
Elyon Longbow: I think I remember something about that symbol…
Elyon Longbow: It’s the King of Worms… Azral. He hasn’t been worshipped since before man walked Belandir, and little is known about him…
Elyon Longbow: Other than he commanded legions of undead in an attempt to ururp the heavens.
Elyon Longbow: That’s all I can make of it, anyway.
Draven Ashwood: ... an undead god? This could be a link to the necromancy guild
Robyn: what would it be doing here?
Elyon Longbow: And for some reason, I think this doesn’t bode well for us.
Draven Ashwood: This tells me their reach is beyothat can be coolnd the city walls
Robyn: that can’t be good
Draven Ashwood: We had best be on our guard, I fear the worst has happen at black hill
Elyon Longbow: Aye, it is starting to look bleak anyway. Best make haste!
Robyn: you think this is it the path i mean
Campaign saved.
Elyon Longbow: I suppose so. Brother Vahn said the path would be clearly marked…
Robyn: better take another dose
Draven Ashwood: How many can we take in an hour?
Elyon Longbow: 1

Draven Ashwood takes another dose
Robyn: she said 1
Robyn: raise another hp
Draven Ashwood: Lets get moving and with haste
Robyn: yes
Elyon Longbow: Aye…
Elyon Longbow starts to move along the path….
the rains begins coming sown harder
Walking along the foot trail through the trees you come to a small ravine that is about 40’ deep, a small foot bridge spans the crevase.
Draven Ashwood: remember…giant dead rat. It might have attracted prey
Robyn: ready knife
Robyn: i don’t want any suprises
Draven Ashwood ready’s a large knife
Robyn smell: [3d6 = 8]
Draven smell: [3d6 = 8]
Elyon smell: [3d6 = 11]
Elyon Longbow draws his shortsword and remains alerter than usual while making his way through the mud…
crossing the bridge you all smell that familiar sent of dead
Robyn Per: [3d6 = 6]
Robyn: well looks like we found our rat
Robyn: look down there
Elyon Longbow: Bah, it’s that same sickly stench again!
Draven Ashwood looks for the rat
Looking down you see a very thin man naked lying dead at the bottom of the ravine.
Elyon Longbow peers through the rain into the darkness…
Robyn: dosn’t look like a rat to me
Draven Ashwood: We found your husband, Robyn.
Robyn: that is a man down there
Robyn: haha a bit to scrawny
Elyon Longbow: Come now, let’s treat the dead with some respect…
Draven Ashwood nods
Robyn: lets be careful
Robyn: who do you think that is?
Elyon Longbow makes his way over the bridge…
Draven Ashwood: I’ll take point and see what I can find stay behind
Draven Ashwood: Stealth (13) :[Success!] [3d6 = 11]
Elyon Longbow: Are you sure? We’ll be right here, give a shout if you need us.
Robyn: you are not the only sneeky one here
Robyn: Stealth (15) :[Success!] [9]
Robyn: i have your back elyon
The small foot trail has lead you through rock strewn hills and small dense patches of trees.
The darkened sky and falling rain make the trip almost unbearable but onward you march. The sounds of the ocean begin to sing in the air along with the scent of salt.
Breaking through a patch of trees you can now see what could only be for destination. A stone walled courtyard lies across a cobble stone bridge that spans a salt water inlet off the ocean. along the edge of the yard you see a few small stone buildings. but what catches your eyes the most is what has to be the Temple that appears to be build into the side of the mountain. The entrance of which is guarded by two tall bell towers.
Off to the right of the Priory over the ocean stands an emence black rock faced hill that seems to be dotted with tiny holes along the steep cliff face. it seems to be connected to the priory by a natural land bar. The Black hill has an ominous glow emenating from it.
Robyn: that looks like a burnt hill
Draven Ashwood: Let me go in first…I have a feeling we’re late for a party
Robyn: i’ve only heard stories
Elyon Longbow: I don’t like the look of this…
Robyn: never thought i’de see it
Robyn: atleast i get to see it willing not like those burried upon it
Draven Ashwood: Are we to enter the temple?
Draven Ashwood: how far away are we from the temple
Elyon Longbow: If nothing else, it will at least be dry inside!
Elyon Longbow: Let’s knock on the priory’s door.
Elyon Longbow: See what we can turn up over there.
Elyon Longbow: Perhaps we’ll at least be rid of that urn.
GM: you are standing at the gmark
Jafty (Draven Ashwood): I found the G spot!
The gate is unlocked and swings wide open in the breaze. It seems as though the place has been abandoned.
Mellock (Elyon Longbow): :D
GM: lol
Draven Ashwood: Not a very warm welcome…
Robyn: i do not like this one bit
Elyon Longbow: It doesn’t look like we’ll find a fire or food here.
Elyon Longbow: shall we take a look inside the temple?
In the center of the courtyard there is a well, along the wall to the building on the right of the well there is a fountain which lines a wall to what seems to be a stone barn. Next to the well to the left is three buildings the one closest is a single structure with fabric awnings. the one directly left of the well seems to be a multi-level building with a door to the lower level underneath the steps to the upper level. the furthest building looks to be a two level structure smaller than the second building. Directly across from the gate is stands the great temple building. you see no sign of people here.
Draven Ashwood: lets go… the temple is our goal
Elyon Longbow: Allright, onwards.
Robyn: [3d6 = 10]
-> Elyon Longbow: In the dark corners all about you you can hear the scurrying of rats
The great double doors are made of a dark wood that is re-enforced by strong iron braces and hinges. The doors each have a symbol etched into round brass plates bolted to the door the symbols depict the scales of Brall surounded by an ancient script.
Elyon Longbow: presses a finger againsg his lips, motioning for silence…
Elyon Longbow (whisper): You hear that? Rats!
Elyon Longbow (whisper): all around us…
Draven Ashwood: hmmm?
Robyn: eww
Robyn: i hate those damn beasts
Robyn: well?
Draven Ashwood: OK… lets see if anyone is home

Dispensing the Beast

After a quick and deadly Battle, the ragtag team of unlikely adventurers brought the beast down! Robyn and Draven though seriously wounded they search the near by woods to discover the bodies of two men dressed like the dark stranger they previously met along the road.

“didn’t he say there was only one companion killed and where are the goblins?”

The quickly looted the gruesome scene and continued along the road to BlackenHill.

The road to BlackenHill
the sun is well on it way to full morning
the streets have thinned of people only the occasional house maid walks about
After walking past teagans den you again come to the location of that grizzly scene that confronted you the eve before
GM: standing near the gallow you spot brother vahn
Brother Vahn: Thank Brall I knew you would not abandon Rhodec in its time of great need! I take it all your affairs are in order?
Draven Ashwood nods his head slightly ” We have taken care of our business here in town”
Elyon Longbow nods in agreement. “I do believe we’re ready”.
Brother Vahn: Blacken Hill lies 30 Miles east along the coast. You should be there before dusk, traveling by foot… Just stay on the road, the foot path to the Priory is visibly marked. You should have no problems finding it.
Brother Vahn: here take this…
Brother Vahn holds out a brass urn
Draven Ashwood takes the urn placeing it in his backpack
Brother Vahn: 3lb
just as he hands over the urn
The same fair skinned, redhaired women seen in the courtyard appears atop the gate wall. she is dressed far less innocent than when you last seen her.
Robyn: I couldn’t allow you to embark on such a trip without this.
Draven Ashwood whispers under his breath ” thieving harlot”
Elyon Longbow raises an eyebrow…
Robyn tossed a small purse
Draven Ashwood catches the purse gripping it angerly
GM: dx roll
Draven Ashwood: [3d6 = 7]
Jafty (Draven Ashwood): dex 11
GM: you caught the purse
Brother Vahn: Robyn, I do not understand why Brall smiles so brightly at your heart. One day you will force his weights to lay claim to your head.
Robyn: Is that any way to treat a lady who offers her services to the needs of the Brall and Rhodec? what say you fine gentlemen?
Draven Ashwood looks to Rlyon
Draven Ashwood: elyon
Brother Vahn: while i to don’t trust you with my purse strings
Elyon Longbow: I’m not a big fan of thieving either, especially when it comes to friends of mine.
Brother Vahn: i know she will not betray you to the cult
Draven Ashwood: If you come you must be point. I want to make sure you’re always in my sights
Robyn: i return your goods and you call me thief?
Draven Ashwood: I have trouble understaind humans
Elyon Longbow: It’s not the *returning
I have a problem with. Anyway, we had better get a move on if we wish to arrive by dusk.
Robyn: and not to mention i offer my services to help your …whatever it is
Elyon Longbow: I wouldn’t want to have to camp along the way.
Robyn: i supose then that is a no?
Draven Ashwood extends his hand towards the direction we’re going.
Draven Ashwood: You may come but you remain point.
Elyon Longbow: You’re welcome to join us.
Robyn: oh such brave little men
Robyn: and they say behind every man is a good women
Robyn: ha
Draven Ashwood clinches his jaw trying to remain composed
Draven Ashwood: Lead the way, woman…
Elyon Longbow: Las’tha et nohil…. Let us go.
Robyn: and i have yet to know where it tis i’m going
Robyn: ok
The journey begins you walk along a meandring gravel road speckled with weed and tumble brush.
The terrain consists of rolling hillside with grassy plains broken by occasional 1-2square mile patches of forest or woodland stretching into the distance. Gentle breezes fragrant with the smell of lite grasses and sweet flowers rolls over the hills. Robyn: so where are you all from?
Draven Ashwood: Translated in to your language, my village is called soul
Robyn: like the shoe?
Draven Ashwood: Like the souls of our ancestors. The ones we have preserved in the mistics tomb
walking alone and conversing the sun passes into mid afternoon
Ahead you see an lone traveler Limping down the road towards your direction. He wears a tattered black cloak and holds a staff.
Draven Ashwood: Our village is hundreds of years old
Jafty (Draven Ashwood): oops sorry
Robyn: you should know that i’m part elf.
Robyn: what is that?
Robyn: no oops
Robyn: all good
Elyon Longbow squints as he looks at the traveler in the distance…
Draven Ashwood watces the man and looks to Elyon and back to Robyn
As you get closer he steps to the side of the road leaning on his staff.
Robyn: Merchant (13) :[Success!] [3d6 = 8]
Robyn: well that clothing was once worth something
You notice that not only is his clothing tattered but it is also blood stained.
Draven Ashwood: Good day, sir.
Elyon Longbow: Hail and well met! —Are you allright, sir?
man: aye good sirs
man: i’ll live
Elyon Longbow: What happened to you?
man: to bad for my fellow friend
man: was attacked by goblins up a ways
man: was able to kill them but only after they killed my friend and wounded me
Elyon Longbow: My condolences for your loss…
man: i need to get to rhodec to warn the city
Draven Ashwood: May their souls be used again
man: aye he was a good sot
Elyon Longbow: We came from Rhodec ourselves… The road ahead is free of danger, as far as wel could tell.
man: that is good news i must warn the merchant traveling to kalidel
Draven Ashwood: What other danger lies ahead, sir?
Robyn: PickPocket (13) :[Success!] [3d6 = 10]
man: you all would have any water to spare would you?
Draven Ashwood: I have enough for one day. I cannot spare any.
man: well i thank you for stoping anyways
Draven Ashwood: If you do not make it back, may your soul be used again
Elyon Longbow: I hope you make it safely to the town… Perhaps we’ll meet again in more favourable circumstances.
Draven Ashwood looks at the man with a dry expression
Elyon Longbow: Let’s go Draven, we’ve got a lot of grounds to cover.
Robyn: againwith the shoes
Draven Ashwood nods moves down the road ” That woman is my bane”
Robyn: is that so
Elyon Longbow sighs…
Elyon Longbow starts moving along the road again…
Robyn: well i am a bit bothered by the fact that though he travels to rhodec he has nothing
Robyn: not even pocket lint
Robyn: only this worthless medal
Elyon Longbow: You… picked his pocket?
Draven Ashwood: I’m sure he would be happy to accept your supplies for his trip.
Robyn holds a medal with a curled serpent
Elyon Longbow wonders if he recognizes the medal
Draven Ashwood extends his hand as if he expects to have it given to him
Robyn: junk, here
Draven Ashwood examins the metal closely
-> Draven Ashwood: does not recognize it
Draven Ashwood: You must have been a jakle in your previous life, woman
Draven Ashwood drops the metal into his backpack
Robyn: lol you will come to praise the likes of the jackle soon enough
As you walk along the path towards your destination, the road ahead opens into a clearing to the north you see a large patch of woodland stretching forth far off into the distance, before which stand a single solitary stone. The whole of the clearing is dotted with scrub brush and tall green grass.
Robyn: remind you fellow of home?
Draven Ashwood: No, I live in a village carved into a mountain
Elyon Longbow: It… it does.
Elyon Longbow: How much distance did we put behind us, you reckon?
Robyn: you never seen a waystone before.
Draven Ashwood shakes his head in confermation
Draven Ashwood: Never
Robyn: elyon roll wilderness suvival
Elyon Longbow: Survival (Woodlands) (10) :[Success!] [3d6 = 7]
-> Elyon Longbow: about 20 miles into the trip
Elyon Longbow: 20 miles by my reckoning… 10 more to go!
-> Elyon Longbow: you sense a storm coming
Elyon Longbow looks up
Draven Ashwood places his hand on Elyon’s shoulder ” Your skills are very valuable”
Elyon Longbow: There’s a storm coming though. THe weather is already turning, and those clouds don’t look too good either.
-> Elyon Longbow: Lore has it that the way stones were built by the evish ancestors to mark the crossing the silken threads of creation.
Robyn: No one knows who made them or what they do. Some think they have magic. I just know they are all over and can be found on most any trade route.
Campaign saved.
Draven Ashwood: Lets increce the pace … we need to beat this storm
Beast Per: [3d6 = 4]
Elyon Longbow Per: [3d6 = 6]
Draven Ashwood Per: [3d6 = 7]
Robyn Per: [3d6 = 9]
Elyon Longbow: Those waystones were built by elvish ancestors, or so the tales go. They marked the crossing the silver threads of creation…
you both smell something dead as you pass the open ground with the stone
Draven Ashwood glances around this is a smell he is very used to
Elyon Longbow: puts his hand under his nose…
GM: elyon can track where it is coming from
Draven Ashwood: Death is around us
Elyon Longbow: Tracking (11) :[Failure!] [3d6 = 13]
the wind is confusing the direction
Elyon Longbow: Ugh, what is that smell? Did something die in this place?
Robyn: maybe that mans friend
Draven Ashwood watches Elyon trying to track the smell
Draven Ashwood: That is likely woman
Elyon Longbow: Gods, with this wind, it’s all around us.
Robyn: i think it is coming from over there
Robyn: that action is free to repeat
Elyon Longbow: Tracking (11) :[Failure!] [3d6 = 14]
Robyn: [3d6 = 14]
Jafty (Draven Ashwood): Doh!
-> Elyon Longbow: rustling in the woods behind the stone
the wind is blocking you from tracking the smell
Elyon Longbow: Hey, what’s that?
Draven Ashwood: hmmm?
Elyon Longbow points at the woods from behind the stone…
Elyon Longbow: Didn’t I see something move over there?
Draven Ashwood: Woman inspect that area
Elyon Longbow squints
Robyn: oh brave men Draven Ashwood grins and looks at Elyon
Elyon Longbow: Perhaps we’d better investigate lest we’re ambushed by goblins ahead…
Robyn: you draven mayhap better equiped for checking it out
Draven Ashwood readys his large knife and trys to move quietly and undetected torawds the area
Draven Ashwood: Stealth (13) :[Success!] [3d6 = 7]
-> Draven Ashwood: you see a beast
Elyon Longbow follows closely behind…
Draven Ashwood grunts quietly and hods his hand behind him moations for weapons
As you notice the intricate designs on the stone you suddenly hear grunting and growling coming from the woods behind the stone. You step back to see what made that sound and find a large black fur covered beast charging towards you. The beast has huge claws and a great maw to match.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
