Subject: Another.............


Ulthok watched in anticipation as Sirene drew upon her ancient magic. As the power flowed the Halfling saw concern cross the face of Elven Sorceress.

"My apologies Ulthok but I have not the strength to draw her from the amulet."
Her gaze on the amulet a tear building in her eye,,.

A great pain grew in Ulthok's chest as his heart once more began to break. There were very few that touched the mage as he had protected himself from such involvements. This pain was one of the reasons. As he was resolving himself to the loss a small voice, not unlike that of Peri's only with a male tenor speaking in Elven, came from behind them.

"Your right lady Elf, you have not the strength to draw her from her captivity, within the stone of the amulet."

Startled both Ulthok and Sirene quickly looked up to find a new presence had entered the clearing, a mature looking Faery Dragon. His coloring of blue and green, his butterfly wings the color of light blue, placed him as old in the ages of the small dragons. Landing by her body the male faery dragon stood silently as if pondering some life changing choice.

"I was desperate to find the Princess and bring her home alive and well after she flew away and I have searched for these past years since she left the safety of our home. Though I looked everywhere, I now know why she was so hard to find."

The creature turned to look at Ulthok,"She used you halfling, to hide, by bonding with you as her companion, she hide herself from us."

Turning back to look at Peri's lifeless body."The magic of this amulet to us is like a prison, where to you it holds your psyche, or what you call your soul, to us it holds our life essence until such time as its magic destroys it. Your bond with her clearly was very strong for the amulet to even take her, mistaking her essence for your soul."

Standing silent yet again for what seemed like ages, Sirene and Uthlok remaining quiet respecting his moment. A deep sigh came from him as he turned to face Sirene.

"She is not lost forever, she can be saved, but it will take a choice from you Elvin Enchantress. For her to be released from the amulet will take both of our magics for neither of us alone is strong enough. However this will in the same way as the halfling and the princess, leave you bonded to me as my companion until one or both of us is dead. So Elf will you bond with me and become my companion as Princess Peri is with the halfling?",,,.

Once again there was a sight hope in his heart but he knew this was not an simple thing. What the Faery proposed would come with a cost, Ulthok feared it would be a much greater cost than a mire 168 silver pieces.

Siréne met the eyes of the fey dragon with her own fey gaze, "It is not an insignificant thing you ask, for I, like you, am not of the mortal world. If you are to bond to me, then know you must swear yourself to the ancient path and to the will of the Goddess before all others. Swear to this and we will be bound, in this world and in faery for time unending."

Pausing a moment, the witch solemnly raised her hand, palm facing the dragonette, "Do you swear? Are we bound?"

Ulthok winced, the fey do not give and take freely, would this new creature give up his soul to Sirene's Goddess to save Peri? If he would then Ulthok must learn what would drive him so.

Making his way to Ulthok's door, Cor knocked. "Ulthok lad, tis Cor. I came ta see about raising your wee beastie Peri. Tis time for her to once more live and breath." Cor waited for an answer.


Ulthok and Valene had been so intent of the arrangement with Sirene to heal Peri and the need for the mage studying to have two Teleport spells prepared that Ulthok had not informed his friend Lord Cor of the news of Peri. Opening the door the Halfling grabbed Cor by the shoulders and spoke excidedly. "Oh Cor ..Peri is not dead..well she is dead ..but she's not dead dead, just sort of dead." The Halfling saw the skock and confussion on the Dwarv's face. "Well what I mean is that Allanan discovered that because of the unusual bond between Peri and me..I guess it was becuse I messed up the Find Familiar spell and nearly died and it altered the spell and bond...but what it also did was let Peri share my Amulet of Life  protection....she it here Cor" Ulthok holds out the amulet, glowing faintly "...she just needs to be healed to return, like me...well sort of.." Ulthok plunged on, "Allanan says that because Peri is a magical fey creature the the heal to bring her out of the amulte needs to be Fey Magic....Sirene agreed to do the heal but we must prepare and then travel to a special location....we must do it this evening and have all ready at the magical time between day and night. ....isn't that great....Valene and I will be leaving soon so that we are prepared when the moment comes."


Ulthok could see the dazed look in Cor's eyes, "I thank you friend for preparing to heal our little fairie dragon, but all is under way...I can teleport myself, Valene and Sirene to the location but that is all I take...you are welcome to come.. I think...we are going to the edge of the Elven lands.... where Sirene's power would the strongest....if you wished to go I think you would be welcome..but maybe check with Sirene. But as I said my magic will likely only let me take the three of us."  With that Ulthok hugged his friend and sliped back into his room closing the door.


 


(O. O.C.....This will be more clear when Nimu and I get our posts up.)

Oh good. I sort of lost track of things too. I was wanting for Nimu also. I was going to have Ulthok address Sirene about Peri after Sirene responded to Majestic. I guess I should have said something. Sorry.

Spoilers.....well anything is possible. Although Majestic didn't take the scale back from Valene doesn't mean she can't change. Soooooooo........we will see.

Now there are still a couple ogf things to complete before we head out on our next adventure.

Ulthok really needs to bring Peri back. That is my next thing, I've asked Nimu to help co-write that portion.

And I can't believe that I missed that Tann done the post.

I don't think you need to change your post. You pose it as a question and if Majestic didn't know of Talca I would guess Tann will address that in his post.

I was just trying to help fill in the blank for you. From the party I'd say Valene would know Majestic best seeing that they were prisoners together in the flying castle. but that was when Valene a NPC played by Tann and none of the details of their time together has been told.

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.

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.

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.
