A scarecrow? Arien wondered. But why? Surely the hanging bodies were warning enough?

The knight tried to not think too hard about what sort of evil would stitch together the skin of a man to make, in effect, a "No Trespassing" sign.

Before he could even get the words out to ask about possible enchantments, the elven mage had already reported his findings. All rather innocuous and expected... which, for some reason, made Arien all the more uneasy. "Thank you, my friend," he replied to the caster.

"Maximus," the knight spoke softly. "Check the... scarecrow and the surrounding area for traps, if you will. I would not be surprised to find that our enemies have drawn our attention to this macabre display, only to shoot us with poison darts or somesuch while we are distracted. Let us beware the skulls, the pillars, the hunters themselves."

He paused a moment. "I rather doubt that our enemies intend to allow us to simply stroll, unmolested, into the front door."

I'm off the Panthers bandwagon. I keep expecting them to turn it around, but it's not happening.

The defense is inexplicably bad, the offensive line is every bit as bad as expected, and Newton has almost no help.

The guy has already warned us to expect a fatality rate of 50%. This from the GM who has a record of being deadlier than me, though he claims to not be a player killer.

Which means the fatality rate is going to be somewhere between 80% and TPK.

Tann, that's cool. We're all glad that it meant that much to you. Hey, I **LOVED** the original CWWLLO. Al the killer DM, the vivid bad guys, the storytelling, etc.

Just keep it all in perspective. There is some undetermined period of years between that game and this one. If we ever decide to do a timeline, we'll have to hash that out, but this is meant to be a one shot game. It really, honestly, does not matter how old Maximus is now. Either way, there have been more than enough years for him to have adventured and gained his levels.

Remember, though, that the DM's word *is* law. If you absolutely want to be playing the exact same guy you were playing back then, but your timeline doesn't add up with the DM's... edit your timeline.

Change your age, change the events. Heck, this is a high magic world, maybe Maximus ended up in some alternate reality for a while where time flows differently.

Or, just hand wave it. It really doesn't matter. Again, nobody cares how old Arien is. No offense, but we also don't care hold old Maximus is.

Just focus on the game at hand.

I'm with Roger. In my mini timeline, it's been 12 years since the original CWWLLO. Does anybody actually care how old Arien is?

Nope.

All that matters is that we know one another, though it's been some five years since we adventured together. Check and check, one shot dungeon crawl, let's go kill some bad guys.

Subject: An inauspicious start


Back at the court

Arien glanced up to see an old, familiar face - Maximus, the ex-gladiator's features a slight tinge of green after his teleportation. The big man moved beside the knight and greeted him.

For the life of him, the patriarch of House Thedell could not understand why a man so obviously meant for fighting had decided to take up the stealthy arts. However, those skills certainly would come in handy in many situations, and from the looks of the party, there were plenty to swing blades and pull bows.

The two of them had honestly never been particularly close; Arien had always found the man's lack of tact and manners to be more than a bit grating. However, he was a trusted and valuable comrade, and the knight would never intentionally offer insult. Arien offered his hand and clasped Maximus' forearm. "Well met, Maximus," Arien replied. "It has been some time."

Assuming chitchat and pleasantries prior to the queen...

*************************************

At the entrance to the tomb

Arien allowed the fuzz of teleportation to clear as he took in his surroundings. At first, he tried to discount the evidence, but it quickly became overwhelming.

The Tomb of Acererak. It did not seem possible, and yet... here they were. The knight felt icy tingles of fear grip his stomach - if this was the destination, then it stood to reason that Chryssa's premonition was a real thing, and not just the worry of a wife and mother.

But truly, that changed nothing, did it?

Some men claimed to taste no fear. In his years of adventure, Arien had long ago realized that only fools or madmen truly felt no fear; everyone else simply hid it well or lied about it. Despite what the bard songs might say, courage was not the absence of fear; instead, courage was the ability to press on, to do one's duty in spite of that fear.

But now, it was time to set those thoughts aside. Hesitation could lead to death, and the patriarch of House Thedell had every intention of returning home to his wife and son. Now, though, the amulet pulled him toward the tomb, and to Galen.

It did not take an intelligent man to recognize the obvious warning in the display of the hanging bodies. At the very least, this was some sort of horrid warning... but the entire situation made Arien very uneasy.

"Be ready," the knight hissed. "This man - or whatever he is - is no friend. No decent person would be in such a place of evil as this, surrounded by the hunters in such a display. I fear a trap; prepare yourselves, friends, and fan out into combat formation."

Powerful magics and enemies were at play; surely, those who had abducted Galen would have expected the Queen to send rescue for her son. Subtlety was pointless. With a whispered prayer to Heironeous, Arien stepped forward and drew Liun'naur.

"You there," the knight called as he stepped forward. "What is the meaning of this? Who dares to slay the servants of the Faerie Queen, and to disgrace their bodies so? What have you done with Galenthanus, son of Yolanda the Queen?"

And now, there was nothing to do but cautiously advance, knowing full well that something terrible awaited.

I agree with Ayrn. Kill 'em all.

I'll try to have a post up by tomorrow night (Saturday). Tann, I'll do a backpost piece to address Maximus.

Folks, I'm planning to play Arien as the de facto party leader unless you guys have an issue with that. He's held that role before, so it makes sense.

Of course, Kadrin is a general, so Arien will be sensitive to this, will trust his council implicitly. Arien is very bright tactically, but he's too bold and too trusting, sees the world as very black and white. He's also smart enough to know he has shortcomings, so he will listen (though he may ignore advice and charge, anyway).

Arien will, in fact, listen to input from any of you.

At any rate, if you have a problem with me playing it this way, speak now!

I feel exactly like you do about Beth and this arc, Eol. I never cared for her character, but the time with Daryl changed that. I was ticked for some time, as I thought they had killed her off screen with the cannibals, nice to know that's not the case.

Seeing Beth set the bad cop up to get munched was epic.

Dawn is an utter fruit loop. I'll be glad to see her die.

You know, I had forgotten that, Roger. I stand corrected.

I often seem to stand there.

Thanks, Eol. Yeah, I figured that in the twelve or so years since the last game, Arien would have needed to turn his eye toward having an heir. In my little make believe story, his wife is technically a quarter elf (not that it really matters), grandmother was an elven seer of some sort.

But yeah, at thirty-eight years old, Arien has seen his priorities shift a bit. I liked giving this a little foreboding; if he doesn't make it, his wife's premonition was correct, you get the bittersweet of him knowing the risks and charging onward, anyway. Yadda, yadda yadda.

As for Spooky... 'twas an epic death.

Thanks for the reminder. I'll do my best to be specific.

As I recall, Arien was always one for that, what with his tactical training... though has was never the party leader due to his trusting nature.
