Subject: Not Seen The Dragon Queen in Dragon Form....


Well we don't really know about the powers of the Dragon Queen. We have never seen her in Dragon form. Allanan is the only one that would know. So the only way I can think of to find out is to have your character roll play and talk to Allanan about it. You could also talk to Majestic.

Introduce yourself and just ask.
=========================================
Ok just read your post. I don't believe Majestic knows Talca was with the party unless something he did after the party returned to their present would have been significant enough for the story to get to her. He would have had to tell the story of what happened. and those stories may have brought the Goddess after him.

Allanan knows Talca, but he hasn't had time to tell Majestic about him.

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


Ulthok watch as Valene addressed the Dragon Queen. This was the first he had hear of the magic scales Valene had carried. It made him wonder if the one she now held out might still be of value to the party.


It was then that he realized that he too still had a magic item thast princple use had been fulfilled.
Making his way to Allanan the halfling pulled from his pouch a clear gem.


"Pardon me Sir but now that we have returned this gem you gave me to track the party so you could find us is no longer of value for that purpose. Doyou wish it returned or shall I keep it for future use?"



Ulthok waited Allanan's reply although returning a gem was a bit against his nature.

Subject: Valene.............


Found that Valene still carried a magic dragon's scale from Majestic. Not sure how it would be useful to Valene so writing to have try to return it. If Majestic wants Valene to keep it we will need to figure out how it can help Valene. Is it a one time use or does it rediate magic to enhance Valene's casting. It may have several one time uses.


 


I found this in the back story on page 254 were Astrid wrote about how Valene rejoined the partyin the tower.


 


For those interested, Majestic first appeared in the story on page 237. This was just before Allanan sent us to the islands to find the tower.


Also found that Allanan had given Ulthok a magic clear gem so he could find them. Ulthok still has it so I posted him asking Allanan if he wants it back.

Subject: Valene......


When Majestic had finished her tale Valene made her way to her side. "My Lady," the halfling spoke as she gave a brief curtsy. "The magic you used to reunite me with the party worked." Reaching into the pouch she carried at her waist she withdrew a dragon scale. Looking up into Majestic's face she offered the item to her. "You had instructed me to give his to your younger self along with the message to not travel back with us. I was not able to fulfill your request as the younger Majestic was not with the party. Fate alone fulfilled your request and now this belongs back with you."


Valene waited as Majestic gazed down on her.

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


Raising his arms Ulthok let out a cheery greeting, “Althena” and stepped forward onto Allanan’s robe, entangling his feet and falling mightily into the mage. As the Halfling fell he reached out to grab Allanan’s arm to steady himself. But before he could reach allanan's arn Cor drive into the Wizard toppling him away.  A strong hand grabbed and steadies him. Valene drew he up close.


Cor steadied himself and called out, "Restrain that lass. I dinna ken if she is as she has claimed ta be. Allanan, stand down until we find how this meeting has come ta pass. Ye seem ta have some serious explaining ta do lass. I suspect ye talk quickly and truthfully."


Before anyone could move another voice rose, “Hold your places everyone and all will be explained!”


Her face close to his ear Valene gasped, "It 's her, the Queen of Good Dragons.. Majestic."


Ulthok watched and the same young woman they had met at the mountain crossed the room to Allanan. “Oh how I have missed you these so many, many years.” Taking his face in her hands she kissed him warm and deeply.


As he watched Ulthok felt and tender kiss on his cheek as Valene whispered, "She sent me back to you..now she has found her lover."  Ulthok knew he had another debt to pay.


Then listened as Majestic told Allanan that Althena was truely his daughter but she only real how in private. Allanan then insisted that the party be included, he felt they had earned the right.


The group went to a private room and there the Queen of the Good Dragon told them of had happened. They learned of magic used to create Althena and of her powers of the mind.They also learned that the threat of Karza still existed. The times may have changed but their mission seemed the same.

Valene could sense that Ulthok was about to intercede to stop Allanan from casing his spell. But as Ulthok stepped forward and spoke out a greeting to Althena, Lord Cor drive into the Wizard breaking Allanan's concentration.  


Gaining his footing Lord Cor called, "Restrain that lass. I dinna ken if she is as she has claimed ta be. Allanon, stand down until we find how this meeting has come ta pass. Ye seem ta have some serious explaining ta do lass. I suspect ye talk quickly and truthfully."


Ulthok still stumbled over Allanan's robe and Valene grabbed his arm to steady him. As she drew Ulthok near she froze as familure voice rang out in the room.


“Hold your places everyone and all will be explained!”


Valene gasped,"It 's her, the Queen of Good Dragons.. Majestic."


She stood dumfounded as she watch the Queen walk to Allanan, hug him and kiss his with shameless passion.


Squeezing Ulthok's arm, she leaned in and placed small kiss on Ulthok's cheek. "She sent me back to you..now she has found her lover." They then stood and listened as Majestis told her story.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Oooopsy.........


Having learned from Allanan of how to bring Peri back Ulthok was distracted in his thoughts of how to ask Sirene for her help. But first the party made their way to the castle to report to the Kings. It was clear that their new team’s mates were not at all comfortable away from their forest. Rayden and Arandur now held back fear. Hopefully this meeting could be brief and they would catch up with Lothor and Sirene.  


Ulthok and Valene flanked Allanan as the party was ushered into the room where the Kings and remaining general’s waited to receive them. As they entered the crowd parted and there stood Althena Sunblayze, her face lit up as she saw Cor. But her expression changed as she saw Allanan.” “Daddy?” Her eyes wide open, her gaze sweeping each of party members as if asking for help including the new siblings “How, how can this be?” As she backed away as Allanan raised his hands. Ulthok could feel the magic gathering as a spell was being prepared to be cast.


The party had been lead to believe that Althena was Allanan’s daughter and rightful heir to the evil sword that they must be kept out of the hands of the forces trying to over though Trilogy. But Allanan has said he had no daughter.   


Ulthok sensed that the power of the spell Allanan was drawing was not a blessing. If the two of them began a duel in this small room then all in range would suffer. One of these two have lied or even both, the truth needed to be found. Ulthok had no spells ready that could stop either from casting but perhaps he could interfere enough to prevent the situation from escalating. So raising his arms he let out a cheery greeting, “Althena” and stepped forward onto Allanan’s robe, entangling his feet and falling mightily into the mage. As the Halfling fell he reached out and grabbed Allanan’s arm to steady himself.

Topic: Why Did you join the Inn?
Subject: Comics..........


I had started playing AD&D with our Scouts on campouts. We used the game to keep the boys from bringing hand held electronics.


Well that lead my interest in Web Comics. So in 2010 while looking for some I came across Loaded Dice. I started lurking and began to look over the rest of the site. Eol, PitFriend and others were so welocoming that I stayed. The word games and such was what I used to get use to the site. Kibitsing, puns and jokes in Common Room sites got me my "title" of Pundit. It hard to believe I've been here nearly nine years.

A character can see another character making movements and saying words so they could assume that the character is in the process of casting a spell. But they are not likely to sense or feel the magic being called. It could just as easily be a fake, like someone pocking their finger in their pocket to try to make it look like they have a gun in the pocket.


Now a mage is more in tune to the power of magic and may feel the use of magic around them, even may be able to sense if it is offensive or deffensive power. But not always, so that is why we use the "Detect Magic" spell. Cleverly crafted magic may be setup so it is hard to detect without the aid of the spell. Traps, hidden doors, special armor and stuff like that may need to be detected.


The look on a caster's face, thier body posture and hands can clue to the type of magic. Tense angry looks as opposed to soft gentle gestures, that sort of thing. But it isn'rt always that easy. High level mage might be able fry you with lightening bolt with flick of the wrist and smile on their face.


If sirene was with us she'd have sensed allanan's magic too.

Well as I read it Ulthok is the only one to notice he is about to cast, so if the spell needs to be interupted then I guess he's the one to do it.


Even a little halfling tripping and falling into a tall human is enough to break concentration. He might even knock him into that fireplug.


After that the rest will be more aware.

I don't recall Althena defending the party and didn't she have a thing for the Paladin that turned out to be a Death Knight?

Subject: Hope..........


The party headed to the General’s; and Allanan walked with Ulthok and Valene. Halflings weren’t common in his time and the fact that these little people could cast intrigued him. “Pardon me for speaking bluntly”, he said to Ulthok, “but meeting a Halfling that can cast arcane magic is something quite interesting to me.”


Ulthok looked up at the tall human mage,” Well in 2000 years my people have achieved many things, but you are correct that even now there are few that have learned the arcane skills. Valene has become a conduit of her diety and with that blessing she is a very capable caster….”, then with a slight tremble in his voice, “it is her skill that I need now.”


With a raised eyebrow Allana looked to Valene and then back to Ulthok,” Tell me …if it isn’t too personal, what skill do you need?”


“Well sir before we freed you from your own ice prison we battled our way through the halls of the tower. We had another member that didn’t make it to the cavern….my companion and familiar Peri, a fey creature of a Fairie Dragon, died in an attack from the beholders. Valene will perform a raise spell to bring her back to life. My heart will be broken as our link will be gone, she has become so much a part of me in our short time together….. I now know the despair she must have suffered when I died and my spirit flooded into my amulet of life protection and joy she felt when I was healed.”


Allanan stopped, “You have an amulet?……pull it out so I can see it please.”


Ulthok slid the chain up that suspended the item that rested next to his heart. When it was free of his shirt Allanan bent down to examine it.  A faint glow seemed to emanate from the opaque stone imbedded in the golden medallion. “Ulthok…you don’t need to raise your friend…she is here and has been next to your heart. On rare occasion the familiar link is especially strong and in your case because her size was small but her spirit so strong you share your amulet. You two might even be able share it together if the time ever came.But she is a magical creature and I cannot say that the amulet will react as it does for you.I would say don't attempt to release her yet, I am unsure of the magic needed, perhap a your fey caster Sirene should help; her Heal spell would be stronger.”


Although disappointed Ulthok agreed, if just for Peri's safety.

Ulthok listened as Cor stated the facts to the two Elves they were sent to confront with Kakaranatha's demand which she presented as an offer. These were children of the ranger they had rescued in the tower and he had been ready to fight the great dragon but fate handed them a different option and their actions had changed history. Talca had chosen to stay behind so what he had done was also an effect on history. These descendents still had much to tell as the adventures needed to understand the new present. The Halfling listened as the Elves finally made their choice.


“As much as the citizens deserve and need to be aware of this threat,' he started, his voice slightly raspy due to his dry throat and mouth. Clearing his throat, his voice sounded clearer when he resumed his speech, 'the beast has issued her warning to us very clearly and I think we should heed it for we hardly know anything of Kakaranatha's powers or their limits, if indeed they have any limits at all,' Arandur added with a hint of dread. 'Therefore I think, if my dear sister Rayden agrees with me,' here he smiled at her, 'we should hold our tongues until we can fathom with utmost accuracy what the she-dragon's powers and, indeed, what her weaknesses are. If we are the realm's only hope of bringing this beast to heel, then we must proceed with the utmost caution lest we are destroyed prematurely due to our carelessness and recklessness. I just pray that the many innocents of this realm do not pay dearly for our decisions or mistakes.”


As the Elve hang his head Ulthok piped up.” Well you’ve made the right choice; I can tell by your looks you believe we were the last hope to save the world from the acts of the Dragon Goddess. But you really need think how do mortals stop Gods…..”, Ulthok let that sink in for second. “Your father wasn’t with us long enough to learn our mission…and that wasn’t to stop a god from effecting the lives of the mortals. If you believe the goddess is responsible for Talca’s death then I believe it was related to what he did after we left not to just what we did there.” The small mage know they may not favor what he had to say, but he had to say it. “Raydon, your confidence and skill with animals shows your father taught you well. Arandur you seem to carry the action spirit Talca showed when we revived him. So join us in the quest we can handle…and if our actions open a chance for what you feel needs to also be done then all the better. …Now finish your drinks and we must find our way to General St Alban’s and meet up with rest of our group to learn what they have found has changed from last we were here.”

Great post Dragonsoul and SilentOne. Sometimes it takes a little bit to flesh out our team. Each of you building the presence of your charaters that we will responde to as we write. I am getting the feel of how to judge the new Elves, but Ulthok can sometimes be a jerk so don't take it hard if he needles your characters. You should go back and read what he used to do to the teams Paladin when I frist joined. So I'll be careful and if you object too much let me know in PM and we can fix it.


 


Ulthok only has average Wisdon of 10 and a little less than average Charisma of 9. He may be cute and act charming but when he opens his mouth what comes out my not be the greatest.

Sorry I didn't get my post up before Tann got to his. I started a new job, got new health insurance so I've been catching up my real life issues. I will post today and slip it in so as not to derail what has been posted.


 


Depression, health and sef pitty have sort of ruined my writing so I have to suck it up and get rolling again. So bear with me as our "Little Man" steps it up again. I am seeing Cor and Sirene leading to group with Ulthok once again being their little pain in the neck.


 


I've been back reading to reset Ulthok in my mind. I've changed him from time to time and was trying to reset his personality again so he seemed consistent. Also I'll be throwing in posts for Valene and Peri seeing we lost the player of Valene and I need to raise Peri.
