BTW, Asher in the past has been a helper in the engine room. He's not a chief mechanic but he has skills and is trying to learn a bit more. As Public Relations Man it doesn't leave much to do in flight. So I think I'll keep him trying to help both you and Wolf. It never hurts to another pair of hands available.

Subject: Points..................?


Well add 2 points to Covert, 2 to Pistols and 2 to Survival.

As gunslinger what would it take to add Lighten Reflexes as an asset? He's young and strong so reflexes should be good.

If you want to change me all 6 of my points for Lightnin Reflex then I'll do that instead of adding the 2 by 2s.

I am building Asher from what I was given so if I changed things it wouldn't be the same. I see things as the Kid stands taller in the middle of an encounter than during daily events. So we'll see hoiw that works out during that next adventure.

Well I think that if Cor got to Ulthok quickly and was with Valene before she entered the glow then he would have seen the brazier. Also that old Dwarve has been around a while, he very well could have seen the spell of Find Familiar cast before even if he doesn't do that kind of magic. Cor was training Paladins so he's seen a lot and should know a lot. He also knows Ulthok from waaaaaaaaaaay back and knows his goof ups too. Since Ulthok looked unharmed he could feel he got his just desserts for not following the spell correctly and also there was that matter of the unfair drinking contest. .

Subject: Gone Wrong...........


The wizards had worked hard to share and copy spells, they were all tired from the study, but Ulthok had noticed the change in Sirene. She was more solemn and withdrawn; when he heard of loss of her father it made sense. The darkening of her mood brought thoughts of his own losses. Long time companions Haila, Conall so recently gone. Longtime friend Kenji leaving but hopefully to a better place. Others that had started so long ago were also gone and even his own brother was taken. Party members had become close to him only to be taken away. Now only Cor remained from those that started so long ago and even he had suffered dearly. Could it be that it was fate that those he let get close suffered ill.

As Ulthok lay peacefully with Valene, her smooth skin so gentle against his own. The lovely Halfling moved rhythmically as she glided over his body. Her hair fell over her shoulders when she arched her back; raising her torso up allowing Ulthok to view her ample beauty. The mage let his hands caress the curves and lines of her body as they moved to a common pulse. Quiet moans rumbled up her throat as she moved to give pleasure and maximize her own joy. Ulthok allowed himself to be swept away.

The evening drew late, the two tenderly released each other; Ulthok to slumber and Valene left the bed to watch out the window into the night sky. As he dozed Ulthok couldn't help but wonder if Valene may suffer the same fate as those he dare let get close to him.

The morning brought thoughts of how he might be able to aid his friends, the thought of losing more friends was weighing on his mind. While inscribing the spells he found that he might bring aid by adding another familiar. Haila's cat had proved its worth to the party and now Sirene had saved the creature and it would still be with them. The more he thought, the more he felt it was what he was going to do.

When the scribing was finished the small mage went into the town to find the material he would use to bring an aid to the group. Thoughts of possibly an Owl or other flying creature that could scout ahead spurred him on. As he searched he found the herbs and other items he needed. The cost may have seemed high to others, but money was never an issue to Ulthok. But he had to used one of his fine diamonds and giving up a gem added seriousness to this endeavor. It was now set to be done, the only thing left was the bronze brazier needed to blend the materials in fire. Searching store by store he could only find an odd looking brazier in dark pawn shop that appeared to be iron instead of bronze and the owner wanted three times its value. Ulthok was determined and surely it is the heat and the proper wording that made to spell work so he purchased the dark item. Ulthok didn't see knowing smile on the pawn shop proprietors face as he left the shop.

The spell would take time to be cast and not wanting hold up their departure Ulthok postponed the spell to when they would settle for the night. So when they stopped he gathered his supplies and went off to fulfill this plan.

Excited to try the spell he fired the brazier. The iron looking vessel radiating the heat needed as he spread the herbs and material over coals and mouthed the words to energize the spell. Within seconds the magic combined with the material and the brazier started to glow an eerie yellow.
The magic that had been called forth did not feel right to Ulthok, the spell was not working as it should, the iron brazier had change the spells force and not to what the mage could control. Before Ulthok could cancel the spell it run of its own will. The glow leapt over the mage and captured him in its strength, he could not move. The spell of Find Familiar seemed to posses him now as it changed color to a bluish green, it pulled at his soul as if he were now....

The party had gone about their business of setting up camp and had paid no attention to the Halfling as he set to his task. It was only when Niamedris, the other familiar, had sensed something wrong and sent a warning to Sirene did the party see Ulthok trapped in the blue green glow. The party rushed to his aid, Valene being the first to reach him. Her heart beating furiously at the sight of her new companion's entrapment the cleric enter the glow. Whether it was the energy she brought, the faith of her deity or feelings for the mage, but as she entered the glow the spell abruptly stopped. The brazier, herbs and the glow vanished leaving Ulthok standing in silence. The mage had a dazed and distant look to his eyes, as if he were seeing something or being pulled to somewhere. The others gathered and as they drew near they heard Ulthok gasp out, "Dragon", and then he collapsed into unconsciousness.

Hornsilver Mine - Old Shaft, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:50 am Planet Time


The kid had grabbed up holstered his guns as he moved to Wolf and Wyatt’s side. The adrenaline had run out and Doc’s pain killers were fading. Asher was ready to collapse as fast as the mine. When Wyatt looked to the kid, grapping his shoulder and said,, "Git Wolf topside now." it was as if Miss willow had given him a shot. Wyatt had been a father figure to Asher and just voice was enough to steel him again.

Ash got Wolf to his feet and hustled him to ladder. The was gentle but firm, Wyatt said move so they moved. Getting Wolf topside was now his orders so it would happen even if he had to carry the mechanic on his should. The pain and fatigue racked the young gunslinger, but he was on a “mission from Wyatt”. His mind focus on moving Wolf to safety.

Wolf started up the ladder and Ash followed close behind. If he had had the energy to spare he might of laughed at the thought of “close behind”. The dust billowed up making breathing difficult. Ash was staying close enough so if his companion faltered he could pin him to ladder until they could continue. Wolf was slowing and the kid could tell they’d be lucky if he had the strength to make to the top. Ash wasn’t sure if he could push Wolf when he was the harness come down and close around Fenris. The life line went taint and Wolf was drawn to the surface. More lines came down and soon Ash too was crawling out the to the sight of most of the town gathered around to help pull him and the others to safety. Ash just guessed that Andrew must have spread the word that Wyatt was there to bring Pearson and Miss Bridget to justice.

Doc McGuire was there and Ash directed him the Wolf, the big man needed help more than him. The other emerged from the old mine shaft, Sam came out and worst for wear too. Ash motioned him over to Doc, the three rested while they waited their turn for the healers touch.

When Wyatt and Miss Bridget exited last the school marm collapsed holding her head. The Doc gave her a quick check and then smiled at Miss Willow. “Pantelline? Remind me never to cross you Miss Willow.”

Pointing at Wolf, Sam and Asher the doctor was calling out to people, “Okay, I want these men brought to my place now! Gently too so no rough riding.” The Doctor looked over to Willow, “You feel up to helping? I’m just an old country doctor.”

As the people moved to help Wolf and Sam to the mule for the trip back to Doc’s Asher felt hands lift him and a chorus of female voices saying ,”We’ll see to it this one gets there safely”. To Asher's delight Ernestina May and the three sisters were now ushering him to their land rover.

Subject: Spell Binding Fun....


The night had proved to be a glorious distraction from trials the party had suffered under the mountain. The drink, the dance and the time spent with a charming and beautiful woman had refreshed the Halflings spirit. Valene was knew the ways of pleasure. Few took such joy in giving pleasure to others but it was truly her calling and the core of her being. The drink, the dance and pleasure of sharing bath and bed lead to sweet dreams; although the awakening was also a sweet pleasure.

The morning brought simpler joy s as the two dressed and joined the others for breakfast. The small talk of the party covered the goals of the day, Ulthok, Sirene and Weaver would share the content of their spells book along those of Kandue and the book of Haila.

Tomiki Kenji After the meal the group gathered outside the Inn to say the goodbyes to the noble warrior that had shared their pain and glory. Tomiki Kenji had become more than a value companion, he was a friend. Ulthok hugged the taller Samurai, “You will remain in my thoughts and my heart, as the YeOlde heros you have left your mark. Go in peace my friend.” Focusing on a place far away the mage cast his spell and Kenji was gone.

The mage retired to the Inn. Copying and learning the spells proved to greater task then the group first believed and more time would be required to complete the task. In time Sirene sought out Cor to explain that another day would be required to complete their.
Ulthok realized the treasure his friends were now sharing. It would have taken years and a great of luck to collect this many spells. The group discussed some of the finer points so all understood what they copied. Not since his days as an apprentice had he worked so hard. There were ever many spells he could perform. They would require more study and understanding, but he knew the day would come when his experience reach a level that even these would be at his command.

The groups gathered for dinner and Cor reviewed the progress of the day. The second day of scribing was granted. Plans to travel to other cities were presented. The evening end quietly, Ulthok told Valene his hands hurt from all the writing. The cleric laughed as she rubbed his fingers, “Don’t worry, you won’t need those tonight.” The excused themselves from the table.

The next day was filled with more of the same as the magic users completed their task. That evening Sirene and Ulthok determine the true nature of the items found in the cave and these were made available to the party, although Ulthok retained the pouch of holding and the blanket of healing. The Broach would do well to be in Sirene’s possession, her skills as the master mage of the group would surely profit the party. Even though Lother was leery of magic the rabbit’s foot would suit him.
The third night was peaceful as the party retired and prepared for journey that would begin the next day. The halfings had enjoyed each other’s company during this rest period. They the time between them was special and that this was the start of a special relationship. They also knew that neither laid a claim on the other.

In the morning the party gathered again for breakfast then gathered to start their new trek. They Farwell to Kandur as he returned to his people with the help of Sirene’s magic. Then the horses were brought out and riding partners were coupled up. Ulthok once again was to ride with Weaver, this pleased the mage for he felt that perhaps they could discuss the spells they had just scribed.

As they prepared to leave the small mage turned to party, “ We may need all the help we can get so I will summons an aid to assist me and the party. I will gather a familiar.”Raising his arms he casts the spell to call in an aid and hopefully a friend.

(OOC, ok so now what ever Tann gives Ulthok we’ll see how this plays out. Once that is settled Ulthok will join Weaver for the ride. Also a goodbye to our friend YeOlde.)

Gina,
If you saw LOTR Gandolf had one of the Halflings with him on a horse. Halflings will just hold on. Dwarves are the ones that fall off horses, lol.

BTW, I think Cor needs to do some intel gathering before we leave. We should find out what kind of enemy activity has been going on along the path Cor has picked for the party.

What kind of raids, how many, what kind of creatures are raiding? Any heavy magic? Any major troop movements? Any flying evil creatures?

I feel that could help plan what spells should be ready. It won't be a walk in the park.

As for Sirene, I see her as assuming the position as Achemage and Chief Mage of our group. She has more experience, more spells per encounter and more spells with the Druid spells added in.

So I fully agree with her becoming more dark.

Add Animate Dead to my list at Lvl 5, it doesn't bother Ulthok.

I also noticed that some of Kandur's spells seemed to be on the wrong level. Fumble / Imp / Invisibility were on 4th level I believe they are 2nd level, but there might be a 4th level version, was going to look it up.


I hadn't sorted all those out yet and if there was a Glove and / or Globe of Invulnerability?

I'll also get the travels choice too, I was going to do more lookup of the new spells but it seems I won't have time this round.

If I'm not mistaken wouldn't Sirene, Ulthok, and Maggot have the same mage (bard) spells since copying each others and Kandur's spell books? Sirene will have Druid spells and Maggot will have Ranger spells too.

I wish my memory was as good as you kids. I'll have to go check now.

It may be a combo of book and house rules I remember. The spells needs to be "learned" somehow from training. Maybe the house part was to show the DM where and how the spell was aquire and what it would do. I know in my table top I couldn't just do any priest spells beyound the PHB list unless I provide time to be taught and listed in the book of prayers. My character need to find a temple an spend time being taught.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Ranger Spells....


Bri, check out Maggot's character sheet, he has some Ranger spells listed. Druids, Priests and Clerics have a "Prayer Book" of the spells they have learned, you have to have knowledge of the spell first. Then they pray for the ones they wish to use and if they are faithful then the diety grants the spell's use when they cast it.

So yes you can have a spell book, but you will need to find a way make it. You may wish to ask Cor, Valene or other clerics and Rangers to copy their spells. You may find some in the temple of Thor in town and copy those.

I found a good source once called "The Great Net Prayer Book" that I used for a Gnome Cleric I run in a table top game.

Rangers are much more limited to the number and type of spells, I think it is more like a Druid.

Send me an email or PM and we can investigate more and check to see what Tann is likely to allow for your character.

Do you have the 2.0 Players Guide for Rangers?

Ulthok would like to keep the bag and the beads.

I think Luthor could have the Rabbit's Foot, he not used to magic so this would be good to get him used to magic.

One of the clerics or rangers could use the blanket.

If Sirene wants the amulet that would fine. A character can onlt wear one at a time and Ulthok is not giving up his life protection. It already saved him once.
