Subject: Matters Of Opinion..........


Valene looked at each of the party as they expressed their concern an surprise. Though Valene couldn't help but stare up at Ulthok lost for a moment in his impish grin. Slapping his shoulder lightly giving him a chaste admonishing look Valene.

"...I was in the throne room, The Dragon Queen was there." "She sent me here...There will be an explosion, we have to be in the throne room before then. I ... "
Valene looked at the party. " We must convince The Dragon Queen from following Allanan. The time line is in peril if we can’t stop her. We must stop her, some how."



Ulthok gazed at her, “We meet her…………she was at the mountain………..that’s how she knew to send you here. I guess she hoped we’d we be in the tower, she knew we were coming here. But still…”


Valene sighed giving Ulthok a quick squeezing hug, before getting to her feet. Turning to offer Ulthok a hand up, with a rye grin.

"We best heal up an press on as best we can. Anyone in need of healing?"Valene asked in a suddenly serious tone.


Ulthok realized then Lothor was talking again..to him.

“I don’t believe, Ulthok, that this decision is just yours to make. The choice to hold on to the gems is a very risky one. That beast remains out there – we have no reason to believe that it has fled for good. It would be unwise to go into another chamber in this tower and take on another challenge when it might strike us from behind at any time. A wise soldier does not enter battle with an enemy at his back, especially one so powerful. Do you have a reason to believe that the gems have some greater purpose? If so, speak up. Share. If it is only a guess, the very real danger of the beast is more pressing. The gems should be destroyed.”

He looked at all of those in the group. “We have diverse minds and diverse skills in this group – what do you say? Do we preserve the gems because there might be a greater purpose, or do we attempt to deal with the threat of the beast? If the gems are valuable to Ulthok, I will buy him 20 to replace them when we get home. But let us do our best to make sure we get home.”


Turning to Lothor, “I don’t want to be paid for the stones. I took the gems because.. well..they are gems and I have a thing for gems but more I suspects that they were made to control the creature. Maybe the creature was trying to get them so it can't be controlled. I know there may be a continued risk carrying the gems, but I will be the first to be attacked again if they are a draw. It's my experience with magic and magic items that leads me to run that risk. If something in the tower had to banish it to the wall hanging then it may dangerous to anything here. It may be that the gems may be able to put it back in the tapestry. No..I don’t how..yet."

Then adding, "It could also very likely be it just attacked me because I was the first one it saw. If it had really desired to get the gems it would have pressed the attack on me until it had them, but it didn’t. It attacked other that distracted it. Then it fled…without the gems."


Siréne the stepped forward to stand between Ulthok and Lothor. "It is time we place our fate into a divine embrace once again. Let She Who Holds the Mysteries speak."


Pausing for a moment, she spoke, "Lady of Mysteries, see the gems before me. Must we destroy them or take them with us? What is our Fate? What is your Will?"


Giving a sigh Ulthok said, “Ok..I’m always open to a second opinion.”

Subject: It's All Good..............


This is role playing! We have to feel our character to be able to play them over a long period of time. They grow as we grow. There isn't any issue between Nomad and me. We are playing our characters. In character we see things from their view point, knowledge and belief. Lothor sees the gems as a threat because the creature appeared after the skull was smashed and attacked Ulthok because he took the gems. It can must be drawn by the gems.Very understandable.

Ulthok took the gems because 1. they are gems and he has a thing for gems and 2. he suspects that they were made to control the creature, thus the creature is trying to get them so it can't be controlled. Ulthok knows there may be a continued risk carrying the gems, but he will be the first to be attacked again. Also if something in the tower had to banish it to the wall hanging then it may dangerous to anything here. Also the gems may be able to put it back in the tapestry. It's his experience with magic and magic items that leads him to run the risk.

Now so far both sides have not been presented in character. Ulthok is dealing with the return of Valene and feels he has this under control. So it's coming.

So...Game On!!!

Subject: Time..........


Searching her face Ulthok looked for signs to confirm this was really Valene. “I want to believe what I see.”
"Ulthok?" Valene whispered again an she smiled wanly reaching up to cup Ulthok's cheek. "As do i, though you look an awful fright." Valene chuckled softly pulling Ulthok into a soft kiss. Breathing in Ulthok's scent an feeling his arms about her Valene smiled "Aye, tis real. An as much as i never want you to let me go.... "

Valene looked about the room taking stock of the party. "we must make haste."

All this adventure had become of the strange ways of time. This moment with one he had feared lost now huddled in his was both fleeting and frozen. All around him now he heard voices and questions of his companions.

Peri sent mentally to Ulthok. “It is her! It is really her! Your crushing me! …..It really is her Ulthok. I can tell.”


Aliya asked out loud. "How can this be?..........Is this some form of dark magic to trick us??"


Sirene intoned, "Valene? Tell me much of our travels together and what hand brought you back to us. Out of time and out of place, who and what are you?"


Rayne said, "It is good to see you again, but how did you get here? Though we had found some evidence of you in the flying castle as a prisoner, you obviously were not anywhere near us when the blast happened to teleport us back?"


Lothor spoke up. "Ulthok. You tried to crush the gems before. Perhaps it is time to try again. I do not relish having that beast out there somewhere, ready to strike again. Such creatures do not usually run away, unless it is to plan their next strike. If we must face what is in those tombs, or whatever other surprise this tower has to offer, I do not want that thing to suddenly appear and attack us from the rear. If we can destroy the gems, might it be possible that it will be unable to return? Or perhaps threatening the gems will force it to come again, here and now, to defend them? In that case, we can deal with it now. We can handle it if we are prepared and not fighting another demon at the same time. Have you or another hear a spell that could destroy them? Or does Cor have a hammer that might do the job? I have giant strength to swing it with, but that has already been tried, just without the hammer." "If we do attempt to destroy the gems, we must be prepared for the beasts return. Perhaps we spread out around the perimeter of the room, with the gem in the center. Either equally spaced, or with a shield in front of each spell caster. But ready………….What say the rest of you?"


Cor approached. "Tis good ta see ye agin lass. Are ye injured? Can ye tell us what happened ta ye?"


The words of Lothor came to Ulthok as the only one minding to business of their search as was the good duty of the man.

“I hear your words Lothor, but for now we keep the gems. They have a magic and purpose yet to be revealed to us. ….. “

Giving the large fighter an impish grin, “had they not been separated from the skull then we may not have had need to be concerned…..”

Return his attentions to the woman in his arms he looked into Valene’s eyes. He repeated the thoughts of the party, “How can you be here now, here with us, here in this time. And why must we make haste, what is it that you know that creates the need for haste?”

Then smiling down at the female, “You think I look a fright now…you should have seen me before Rayne’s healing.”

Subject: What Next...........


Just as Ulthok let Lothor destroy the skull because it is his nature, Ulthok will keep the gems as it is his nature. They are magic and will have a purpose sometime. But if it become apparent and they draw a danger again then he will act.

As for moving forward, that was part of the reason question of healing. Did the party need time to rest and heal. So far we have staged our moves and acted too rashly. I'd guess Tann and Astrid have worked a little to set the scene and there is still some information not said. Got to ask. Ulthok will do that.

Well since Valene is saying we need move along quickly can we get a couple pieces of information.

1. How much healing did Sirene and Ulthok get, they both took a good bit of hurt. If we are walking intp more danger we need to be at the best we can be.

2. We need a little more from Valene is character about how she got here and why we need to move quickly.

Subject: Checks..........


Alacrity,

A couple of roll checks.
Does Lum recognize the location symbols on the map? The mountains, the castle, the crater?

Also the meaning of the spiders and the eight armed guy?

Then how about a roll to find a light switch for the room?


To the party,
I might guess that the flashing red light is a warning that the power is down because the outer door is not secure. So we may need to secure the outer door to activate the panels and the inner door.

Al,
Is that something Lum's engineering background might recognize? Does this need a roll?

Alyia knows Valene. I believe Alyia joined while we were in the City just before we went to the flying castle. So they fought together a little in the Castle before Valene was captured.joined back on page 191.

Lum had studied the door and the surrounding area. The radiating heat had drawn his attention and noticed the orb objects nesting in the flaming ooze. “Look like eggs….may worth something. Bugs not hurt by ooze….maybe a leg can get them out.”

As he headed back to the bugs where Rhyson had gone he noticed the brand mark on the bugs. Pointing to the brand,“That symbol is orcish. …It a symbol often associated with a figure of legend named Spiros…… He was an orc that Saurians genetically altered to be giant like and have eight arms…. Legend says he fought in the wars before the darkness but turned against his masters to fight for the orc people. The symbol of spirits represents forbidden knowledge and freedom won at a awful sacrifice.”

Taking his axe he chopped off a long leg and emptied the fleshy inner body to form a hollow scoop section. “If them bugs can make eggs and they be raised by Orcs, me take eggs to show proof.” Walking back to the hole the big Orc scooped out the eggs and moved them over to dirt area and dumped them on the cool ground. “Them must need heat to grow…them die now and cool off.” Hacking a section on the leg the Orc stuff a rock in one end. “Make carrier for eggs from legs…Dwan will want to see these.” When the eggs had cooled enough the Orc pushed them into the hollow leg and sealed the other end with another rock.
Lum strapped the makeshift carrier to his pack, “We need to move on…let’s get those doors open.”

Subject: Ulthok.................


There is a thing about Ulthok, he REALLY likes gems. He likes gems better than gold. For him to pay for something using one of his gems is a real effort. So with the danger seeming to be over for the moment it will be very difficult to get him to destroy them now.

Just saying.

Nomad, Lothor had a crush on Valene when they were prisoner of the mountain giants so I'd guess he is glad to see her too.

I think this will be interesting having Valene back again and seeing how Astrid plays her. Just as it will be interesting to watch Peri's character grow under Boo Boo's care.

Welcome Astrid...welcome Boo Boo.

Ulthok has +2 under armor that didn't do much good. That is why he was bleeding from the bite that tossed he across the room and took 25 points damage.

Magic Armor did not stop this creature.

Subject: Something Found............


Pulling the bags that contained the a gem in each he clutched a bag in each hand and with the strength added to him by the gauntlets of giant strength he smashed each into the stone floor. The force hoping to pulverized each to dust and end the creature interest in the party. Alas his effort was for nothing as the creature twisted it’s eyeless head towards the Halfling and roared!

But that moment allowed the party to act and ravage attack on the creature. Doing enough damage to the thing it vanished to protect itself. As the party wait to renew the attack it became clear that the creature was gone…for now.

Quickly gathering their gear and casting what healing they could on the move, the party once more headed for the multi-doored room and made it without encountering any more problems. As they passed through the same rotted wooden door they found the room this time different. Before them in the center of the room lay a small body, in familiar clothing to them all. The site drew his heart into throat.

Ulthok had steeled himself to the thought of the loss of the one that had been able to penetrate the rogues defenses and melt his hardened heart. His trained caution few from him and he rushed to body.

“Valene!” he said in a breathless rush as he rolled the body over unto its back. Quickly he felt for a pulse and he found a very strong one. He then clutched her to his chest. A small muted voice called “Ulthok?”

Regaining some control he remembered this is a strange magic place. Searching her face Ulthok looked for signs to confirm this was really Valene. “I want to believe what I see.”
