Should have a post up by Sunday night.

BTW Tann you should amend the post to add Valene to the group of Cor , Ulthok and Allanan. She may be NPC but she isstill in the party. I can include her in my post.


Nomad, check your post you copied in the greeting to Cor and Ulthok not the one to Lothor and Sirene.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Points to ponder.....

We need to remember that Allanan said ALTHENA SUNBLAYZE was not his daughter as we were lead to believe. She had the sword and now has dissappeared (maybe, Tann should give more in the story restart). The sword needs to be recovered and destroyed. (Which likely is our next adventure.)

Allanan returned with us but seperated from us. He may be needed again to help us find and destroy the sword.

Time and events have changed so what we know of the past is different from the current world time line. Only our newest party member will know the current history, it is their history.

We may be part of legend lore from the stories of Talca, that could be why our new party members sought to join us as they are desendants and know of our actions and purpose.


So when Tann posts we can figure out what to do next.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Spell Lists........

I will try to get an updated list of current spells.

I would hope that we might have another chance for changes once we have more information on our next assignment.

All we have to go on at the moment is we are back and time was effected by our actions. We need to be careful.


Tann, if it is reasonable, I'd like to have Ulthok do some study time with the Court Mages to learn four new spells to add to his book.
Level 3: Improved Magic Missiles, Evocation, WSC 2, Pg. 454

Level 4: Flamsterd's Flamestrike, Evocation, WSC 2, Pg 376

Level 5: Fallion's Fabulous Fireball, Evocation, WSC 2, Pg 339

Level 5: Snilloc's Major Missile, Evocation, WSC 3, Pg 833


I figure with the war being on that there are enough trained court Mages in the city to teach the knowledge so that Trilogy force can be armed as well as possible. Also there were likely loses to magic users so the the knowledge needs to be taught so it isn't lost.

I can copy the full discriptions and send them to you in an email.

The items were loot from earlier in the adventure and were claimed by those active characters. I wasn't sure if they had been added to the character sheets. I saw that Ulthok's were added.

Subject: Characters.....

BTW.. anyone deciding to play a Paladin we have a Holy Avenger sword in our bag of holding. When Cor and Ulthok agree the fighter has proven themself to the party it would awarded. It has belonged to at least two party members and was recovered after their death for use by the next worthy party member.

Subject: Wonderblue and team.....

Valene was only a ready opportunity. Bringing in a mage would be good too. A multi class with fighting skills and magic skill could work. If you have played D&D then you know the idea of roll play and character play. Tann helps with the rules to keep things even and us off Back when the party found the sword in the mountain we had at least three spell slingers and working together they really helped, although at least one die in the attempt.

If you build a mage be sure to create your spell list (spell book) to let Tann know what spells are known. Also select magic items that enhance your characters abilities. Things like rings that add spells, items for protection, wands of various powers. Tann will have the final say on what he will allow and how many can be active at one time. For example we can only wear two rings at a time, even if you own more you would have to switch out. Amultes, pins , broaches and such need Tann's blessing as to how many are active. Also pick your clothing well, cloaks, armor, boots, hats, belts, garders,  gantlets and such. Then choose weapons that fit. All of this help keep your and our charaters alive when used well. As we face much higher level badies these can help even the power factor between them and us. We are 11th / 12th and they are 19 and up you all the help you can get. You may need special pouches or bags of holding to carry extra item to be used later. Ulthor and Cor have bag of holding that are used to carry some of our party items that have been found but not claimed, we sometime sell them to add to the party funds. I had spoke to Tann about building an archive of past character's sheet to help new folks with build ideas but I get it isn't that easy to do. If you look through our current characters it should give a good idea of what I mean for your build.

BTW team...I came across the list of items we aquired while in the City and the floating castle, be sure to check your records to see if your claimed items are on you list. We also have the opportunity to seek and buy items that may help. I'd think that after this last battle there may be a lot items available from those that would have died. The Kings would gathered these for distribution as the war is still continuing and there are murchants that may have found some to sell too.

Subject: Characters.....

Wonderblue, do you perfer playing male or female characters?

We have an open NPC of a female halfling theif/cleric. Mind you she is involved with my character Ulthok in romantic friends with benefits background. As both rogue characters they keep an open mind on relationships but they more than fond of each other.

We have hada couple of people play Valene and each did it differently. One was very flirty and the other was more distant.

I am a guy and playing a romantic or intimate RP knowing the other player in male messes with my mind a bit, but this is fantasy adventure I could do it, just have to keep in character. After all I having been also playing Peri my female Fairie Dragon familure.


That said if you wish your own character that is good too. We need a very strong party, just think that we are about to enter Mordor to destroy the Ring in LoTR. We will be encountering the nastiest of the nasties. Team work is a must so group talk in Q&A helps us understand and plan what our characters will do.

Go to the Character page and view the party members and thier character sheets, it may help you deside.

Don't get too hung up on the edition. We do play closest to 2.0 rules so you can use them as your reference. We go more for role play than rule play. Tann has a bi tof homebrew thrown in too. If you wonder if something can be done just ask in Q&A and the group will help out.

As for catching up onthe story Tann has posted a recap from the beginning to where we just left.

Do a click on the above link and it should take you there.


BTW..what type of character do you like to play.

Subject: Welcome.........Here's Your Towel.....

Hello......... Time to add the Ody welcome.

A really good place to start here is “Pit F(r)iend's epic guide to getting started for newbies.”  That  will help you figure out how to navigate the halls of the Inn.

To meet folks in real time pop into the DragonChat where I act as the current resident bar tender. We offer our very own "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh", the stale pale ale that is so light it has the foam on the bottom.
Just grab a mug off the shelf and draw a cold frosty one.

My assistant Igor is usually lurking around if I'm not there.

He never says anything, must have something to with having his tongue cut out by his last boss, that nasty bar tender over at the Angery Orc Bar & Grill.
I'll have him put out a plate of "Lady Fingers" in your honor.

Reminds me we need to have another "Ladies Night" and restock.

Anyway the “Posting Games” are great place to get to know folks and of course the DragonChat is our favorite lounge.


And here’s a soft fluffy towel.  You will find the use for later.

So lurk or play, welcome to the Inn

Looking forward to getting back to work. Hope my mind will be more settled and I can really write again. Still finding I spend too much time on FB, it can be quite addictive. Got to find that even blend of time.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A

Cool I saw the side thread and was wondering what was up.

Sounds like a great idea to get your feet wet.

By the way Ulthok is only still in the story because he has an Amulet of Life Protection that has saved him about three times.
Tann keeps threating to have something happen to it, would really ruin my day. As the party thief and usual trap finder it is a great asset to the whole party if your lead person can come back from an oops.

Well I start a new job on the 28th and I am hoping my whole atitude is much better. Been out of work since the end of October.
I really hope too that this position has a lot less stress.

As for healing I have gone so far as to make a spreadsheet before that had everyone's spells, potions and whatnot listed so we could repair the damage done in battles. It at times took several different characters acting together to combine enough healing to bring the party back to a stable condition. We then need to find time to rest and regenerate healing spells., maybe find city and buy more potions. So don't get too worried, just try to play smart and ask us advice in Q&A.

Subject: Healers are good......

If this is getting toward the end of Tann story then we can figure we will be facing the worst of the badies.

The closer we get to trying to distroy the sword the harder it will be to stay alive. Coordinated attacks and defences will be critical.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A

Should be moving forward soon. I hope I get my story telling back soon.
We have several things to do in character before we move on.
Tann should lead us through some of it. We need to understand how the timeline change may have effected each of us. How our history may be a bit different. Ulthok needs to raise Peri. The mages will need to choose spells once we get the next assignment.
Of course the party needs to meet the new members. So there should be a bit of rollplay before we head out.

Keeper, I didn't forget about the little back story of Cor and Ulthok. It just got pushed around with the holidays and my job search.

Subject: Ulthok...A Little Back Story.........

Delholmes was the owner of the little book shop in their village near Took. It was in his shop, with his help that Ulthok learned to read and write. Mother and PaPa thought that was a waste of time, no dirt farmer halfling needed to read and write. But ulthok never wanted to be a farmer. His brother Delthak was already gone adventuring so he hooked up with a traveling show, which actually turned out to be connected to a thieves guild. They soon realized how nimble and flexable he was it didn't take them long to train him and incorperate him into their so called shows.

Ulthok moved to Weallin,the capital city of Cormilin, with a rogue Halfling from the show known as Trapspringer. Ulthok just referred to him as Uncle. So his early schooling was most in the thieves’ guild where he showed a great ability, which some thought mystic. 

The city streets and back allies of Weallin were a rough place for child as many would try to play on his innocence. Few realized he was a Halfling so as time pasted Ulthok learned to play the part of a simple child. His innocent appearance would put bullies and thugs off as they were over confident. They would think they had him cornered and his purse would be an easy pickings. The guild had constantly put him through training of jumping, rolling and dodging. They also taught him how to handle a knife and short sword.  The guild was rough on him so Ulthok would know the pain of failing. His often bruised face added to the look of easy prey.  Escape was his main goal but there were time when a bloodied thug lay in the alley with his own purse missing.

Shopkeeper’s wives would take pity on the poor little thing and give him food at the back door. This allowed Ulthok to view the locks and passage into the shop for a later return at night. Part of his training to retrieve items assigned to him and return to the guild. Picking locks, unlatching windows and even scaling walls to access upper windows became a natural skill. At first Ulthok thought it more a game but in time he realized the lose to the shop keeper meant harder times for them and their families. It wasn’t unusual for Ulthok to sneak back and replace the items, much to the disapproval of many guild members. Of course there were also the charlatans that cheated their customer, those Ulthok visited for fun and to deal evens. When the guild threatened to take dark actions against Ulthok for stealing back and returning items Uncle Trapspringer would step in and Ulthok’s only punishment would be harder training.  The harder training paid off as Ulthok achieved the status of “Master Thief” before he reached his age of maturity. But there were still things he needed to learn. Uncle Trapspringer tried to tell Ulthok about how to sense traps and wards. Though he boasted about the simple spells he could cast he lacked the skills to teach the arcane.

Shortly after Ulthok found himself placed in the servitude of a local Wizard when he had been caught picking his pocket. Little did Ulthok know it had been arranged by his uncle. That servitude turned to an apprenticeship. The wizard saw the attention to detail and the natural sense of his surroundings that Ulthok possessed.  The simple cantrips of everyday life only took one or two trials before Ulthok could perform them skillfully. As the years progressed the wizard instructed him in more and more difficult spells. One evening the wizard presented Ulthok with a paper bound package. When Ulthok unwrapped it it was sturdy leather bound Boccob's Blessed Book. Many runes decorated and in the center was an inscription,”



Tome of Magic



Ulthok Rydenham “.


Ulthok looked at the inscription, “Sir it says Ulthok Rydenham.”

“Yes are no longer my apprentice. I have shared with you what spells I can but it is up to you gain the skill to cast them. There is still room to add your own.” Along with these the wizard gave him an amulet of life protection and a scroll that provide him with a creature to aid him similar to having a familiar. “As you go out to see what you can do, these may help …use then wisely.”

Ulthok had learned to wield magic as no Halfling had been able to do before him. This unique combination of skills was quickly recognized by the local court and Ulthok was recruited  for “Special” missions. But what he had learned to love were the random adventures he picked up at the local Inns . The next few years Ulthok honed his craft and gather a bit wealth to boot. It was in one of Inns he heard that the King of Shanntara was looking for adventures to serve as a reaction force for the King and his allies. Little did he know what adventures awaited?

Topic: How to add pictures to posts?

I can load my photos to Google Photo. To add to the post I go to the photo album, open the picture I want, right click on it and choose “Copy Image Location”. Then in the post I move the curser (the blinking vertical line in the text area) where I want the picture like I was going to type text. I then move the curser/arrow to click on the "Insert/Edit image" button in the menu bar, paste the location into the “Source” field. Click ‘OK” and the picture will be inserted where the text curser was. Now I click on the picture to select it. For me this shows an outline around the picture and the four corners have a small square. I grab a square at a corner and drag the corner in or out to resize it as I want.

Hope this works for you.

Topic: How to add pictures to posts?

This was posted by Eol.....

Posting images works pretty much the same as it always has only it's been "simplified" a bit. Here's how it works:

  • Just as in the past, you'll need to upload/save your images on your own hosting site (i.e. Photobucket, Freewebs, whatever).

  • Once your image is uploaded and you're ready to post it here, you simply start your post and, when you get to the point where you want your picture placed, you click on the "Insert/Edit image" button in the menu bar.

  • The url for your image's location goes in the "Source" field (instead of using the html tag [img src="http:blahblahblah"] tag as you did in the past... the code behind the "Source" field adds this tag for you so all you need is the url).

  • In the "Image Description" field, you enter a brief description of the image (i.e. Tann's Picture). This is purely optional, of course.

  • If you'd like to specify the dimensions of the image, you do so in the "Dimensions" field(s). This is also optional. Leaving this section blank will display your image at it's default size. 

  • Once you're done, you click "OK" and, BOOM, your pic is magically in your post!!!

  • Super-facelickity-groovalicious, right?

Aaaaaaaand that's all there is to it, Innmates! No muss, no fuss!


Now, if none of the above made sense to you, feel free to say so and I'll see what I can do about making the instructions simpler... and then make fun of you! (Contact Eol)

I had written a back story to tell how Ulthok joined the team. As I had written his early years to gain his skills I did some back reading to cover his brother Divot. Well I found stuff I had NOT known about Ulthok and my whole story has to be rewritten.

Man I had to go back to page 30-31 to find where Divot entered and found a bunch of history along the way from when Dragonmist was running Ulthok.

So I should have something up after Christmas.

I write my posts in Word and then copy paste them into the post, then edit. I really should have been dating them.

Subject: uLTHOK THE 4TH...........

Hi Dragon,

I'm about the fouth person to play the character Ulthok. I took over about the end of the second adventure.
I changed him some when I started and he has changed more since then. He was CN when I started him but through my play Tann and I agreed he was now NG, that let him get a familure. Getting Peri as a familure was a suprise.
Peri has been a PC and a NPC. I have played both at times. Because they had a psyche link it was easier to coordinate them.
She we killed in the last adventure and Ulthok will be trying to raise her.

Ulthok has got a little darker in character which reflects some of my personality shift over the last few years. As life got stressful my writing lost some of Ulthok's humor. I truly hope to bring some of that back. So I too have go back and reread some stories to get that back.
