Topic: Trail of the Rokash
Subject: A Last Chance..........

Roger had not intended to be at the forefront of this group for other than scouting the trail. But fate has a strange way of moving you where you need to be. He had hoped these men would be honorable, but they were just thugs.

"We are not men of Drannon. We also have no way of knowing what you say is true. You could be people who just want to take what we have found. Now this wagon has no owner present, and is not on anyone lands but a public road therefore rights of salvage give us the right to claim these items."

Roger was ready to reply when out of the minions piped up.

"I say we kill these and take their horses." The leader turned suddenly and back handed the speaker and he tumbled backwards and off of the wagon to land hard upon the ground.
"As I was saying, unless you can prove you are the owner then this stuff is up for grabs. We were here first."

Roger held his tongue, this hadn’t played out yet.

"Now, as to looking for some girl, we didn’t see anyone here but Tokar over there saw some strange tracks headed North. You are welcome to follow them, but if you continue your insistence over this wagon and it's belongings then we have a problem." As if on cue, drew their swords and the bowman whipped out an arrow and notched it but did not draw or aim. None of them moved but they stood armed and ready for a battle.

"So," the leader asked, "what do you say? The choice is yours; no one need die here today. Not over these meager belongings."

The tracker fingered his ring of the "New Realm".

“You are right, they are meager belongs, but they are the life treasures of a shattered man. “ Nudging his horse a couples of steps forward Roger leaned toward the gang leader. “Perhaps I can make this a better deal for you?”

“ If you will deliver this wagon to the man called Tal in Vala’Lia, I will give you each four gold now.... and five more when we return."

"The catch is you will give me your weapons. And as for you”, he looked the leader in the eye “your visitors citizen coin too."

"The gold will be more than enough to buy new weapons and with your coin I’ll be able to find you to pay you the balance.”

“So now the choice is yours!”

Sorry, very tired tonight. I able to read sstuff, but just don't have any good story. But will say that Roger will not like what these" Outsiders" are doing. To him they are "looters" not covered by the laws of salvage in Drannon. So he will press in a bit more.

It will take a couple of encounters before we get to norming, we don't have a trust level built with each other yet. Each will ease the the tension and build the trust. Hopefully we will be at preforming when we meet the Rokash.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: If you want to stay long term, then it can happen.............

As the story goes, from what I see, Cor and Ulthok are original characters. Both have had close calls but have come back. Cor went evil and Ulthok was killed. Now cor has been saved and Ulthok healed. So as long as we have a Cleric or such that can raise the dead you always have a chance.

The changing of character seems to have more to do with the writers and not the characters. Players lose interest or are not able to continue so their character is replaced. In my case I was lucky to take over Ulthok and keep him around.

I like this story and game, I'm hoping to be in it a long time. I've only scratched the surface of what Ulthok can do and who he is.

So don't give up before we've started, there is still a major war to win.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Short Introductions.........

Ulthok had no problem determining the direction Sirene was going, he just followed the smell. As three figures appeared from the gloom the enchantress released her spell and greeted the trio. “Fair be our meeting, for our hearts are light and our swords sheathed, we hold peace in our hands and its light guides us. My name is Sirène Talà Melete. Forgive my sudden appearance. It is not often you find friendly faces in the dark place of this world.”

A bedraggled but comely female Halfling emerged. “My name is Valene Beestinger, my companions and I have escaped from hill giants. I am afraid we may bring trouble to you, as they are most undoubtedly pursuing us.” She glanced back the direction they had come from. “I do not know how many may have followed.”

Releasing the will of spirit from his ring Ulthok appeared next to Sirene. “And I am Ulthok Rydenham , at your service." Sliding his pack off his back the mage opened it and withdrew some clean shirt, breeches and a belt. “My Lady.. if it pleases you, these may fit you. And if I may be so bold, allow me to remove the soil of your captivity?” With that mage utter the words of a simple cantrap of "clean" removing the grime and smell from the maiden.

From behind them the Cleric leader reacted to hearing of giants. "Giants ya say lass? Well now that is a happy coincidence for I am always looking for giants." Cor readied his axe, "If you will just stand aside I am sure that my sword swinging companions and I can deal with such things easy enough." Kenji, Maggot; would you care to join me in a little melee with said giants?" Looking to the others of the party he added, "Keep an eye on our new friends, who knows what trouble might pop up."

“Well it looks like we don’t rest, that Cleric might need a little help with those giants of yours Miss Beestringer, if you’ll excused me……. Oh there are weapons and such back there, choose what you need, we may need your help yet today.”

Smiling pleasantly Ulthok bowed and followed Cor.

Posts are good. This is an a well oiled group. It is still a bunch of ME's and not WE's. Remember the steps of team building. We are in "Storming". We still have to find out about each other, the real folks.

I've let out some clues about Roger, so we'll see where stuff goes.

Subject: Get Um Geared Up........

I'd think we should offer up the items left in the bag of holding in game, that will make sence in the story. They can pick and then write what was chosen to match what Tann offered. Either Ulthok or Magget could speak up and make the offer, even Cor as a gesture to get more armed combatents to go after the giants. Ulthok might have some clothing the size to fit Valene. I'll check my character sheet. Although he isn't used to "dressing" females.

Oh, I see you did, .

I'll get a little bit up tonight, got go dig the garden now.
Ulthok will appear close behind Sirene and introduce himself. Not sure if he'll follow Cor, but the Cleric may need a little magic backup.

Topic: Trail of the Rokash
Subject: The First....................

The party rode on in relative silence. The Khord that had talked with such bravado while nursing his tankard was now riding passively. The mage that had challenged him held her tongue. The air was filled with distrust. There was nothing that these had in common, they weren’t even from Drannon, why would the care, why hadn’t the towns people come out to protect a countryman. The idealistic young man felt he was understanding more why he had been sent. Could he use this group to help his mission?

After about an hour they approached the wagon Tal had left. There were several men rummaging through it. The men saw them and one called out, “Hold there! We found this first so this here is ours.”

Straightening in his saddle Roger placed a cold stare on the man, placing as much authority as he could in his voice he addressed the scavengers. “You may have found it, but it was never lost. This is sole possessions of a man who’s daughter was stolen by the Rokash. We have come looking for clues to aid us in our hunt for the girl. I would hope that the men of Drannon would remember their honor and not steal from the unfortunate.” Placing his hand on his sword he continued, “ In the name of the Emperor stand aside and let look for clues.”

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Fly Now, Live Now........................

Sirene conveyed the scene of an undulating landscape, a vast expanse of crawling slimy gray flash eating slugs. Fighting through that throng would be a challenge and the small mage was glad he’d prepare an array attack spells. Ulthok was armed with Fire and Ice. Freezing and frying would be how he’d help cut a path , but with so many seeming mindless predators would they be over whelmed by the sheer numbers.

It was time they had to move, prepared to swing open the temple doors the party called to the Valar that it time for her make her run, setting events in motion. Even as Althena took her first step on to the stairs the massive building started to tremble and quake. A great rumbling and cracking sound from every corner rang out as the destruction spell Althena’s father had placed upon the temple raced through its walls. The rapid destruction surprised the party as great chunks fell about them. The assailing debris now hampered Althana run . When Sirene turn back to help, Ulthok would let her go alone. Seeing the enchantress changing form into a great bird the mage knew flight would be their best option to gather up the Valar and escape. As Sirene took to the air a small feather landed at Ulthoks feet, picking it up he smiled and cast Fly upon himself and followed the Elven maiden up off the floor. Ulthok was exhilarated by ease and grace of eagle and followed form as he kept close. This time his hunch proved better, he was there to help when a falling bolder struck Sirene and cause her to falter.

Once more in control the mighty eagle was able to snatch up Althena an speed its way to the temple doors where now a rest of the party was mounting a massive Red Dragon that burst open the doors to achieve their exit. Flying under Althena Ulthok supported her as climbed to the back of the eagle and there took a secure hold. The three swooped out the door and up into the air as the temple behind them imploded into a massive creator.

The party now flow over the ravenous slugs that were dying in droves as the earth rented itself, caverns opening and the slug fell into the holes to be crushed by the shifting earth and stone. Ulthok concentrated on his flight as the glided over the forest, the small canyon and onto the ledge they had used for rest just days before. The Fly spell is a wondrous thing but Ulthok knew the danger lay in the time it would stay with him, it never acted the same way twice in a row.

They were safe or at least they were away from temple. Landing the party regroup and Ulthok lead them back into the tunnels from where they had come. A ways in they found the original path blocked; stone loosened the quake had cover it. But a fissure in the wall had opened not far from the collapse. The party had little choice so passed through into a new tunnel.

An uneventful yet tiring trek lead them to a large chamber where Cor deemed it was a proper place to stop and rest. The party took the Cleric direction, sitting about and engaging in idle conversation. After a time Maggot screwed up his face and said to Ulthok,"I since a smell of cooked meat and someone else not of us. Kinda like somethings but yet unlike anything." Then Sirene stood, “There are some people heading towards us,” she added soberly after Maggot had spoken. “Niamedris senses three people. He thinks they aren’t evil, but…” Sirène left the rest unspoken. They had all been fooled by Alasdair. “I’ll go ahead and check.” Paceing off to the darkness Sirene faded from view as she cast invisibility on herself.

Heaving a sign Ulthok looked off in the direction of the beautiful enchantress, “Oh there she goes again, last time we had intruders and I followed her I ended up like boiled soup. Oh well at least this time I can walk.” With that the mage stood following the direction the Elf had taken; winked a bit of will into his and vanished too.

Ooops, my bad, you're right about the spell progression.

What can we do to neutralize the bowman?

If all of our archers draw on their archer then we can tell them all to lower their weapons.

I still think the threat and bribe might work.

Anyone got any wards ready? I know I'd set most my spells feeling we had longer fight to get where we are.

Tann, would you open to some spell changes? I'm not sure if I would but I felt we would be battling more before resting , before we went back in the tunnels.

"Poof" See you are really a Level three and have more spells.

Low level (2nd level with maybe one 3rd lv mage character; only one spell caster, other than cleric). No magic items. You can pick our your type of armor (nothing higher than Chainmail) and one main weapon for free; you will get 100 gp ea. for miscellaneous equipment.
