Topic: The Chakran Portal - Q/A
Subject: ok


I've had word from Valimar and Kaelyn. They are both still interested in playing, though Kaelyn can not say when he'll be able to start again. It will be quite a while, so I promised that I would keep Thondrek 'in the freezer'. Valimar has some behind-the-door roleplaying to do, so you probably won't see any actual posting action from him until the doors are opened again.

I haven't heard from Jozan, but I gave him a week to react. If I haven't heard from him soon, Loda will find her end eventually (be it in this battle or another).

I hope everybody can start posting again, updates are waiting!

Geim was taken aback by the thickness of the creature’s hide. Depending on a source that would always be there for him was perhaps a better idea. His voice echoed over the battlefield.

"Oh Great Kharox, I pray for my companions in arms Aid them in their battle against this foul unnatural creature and Confound the beast and render it helpless."

A slight tingling sensation spread through the present companions. Their first misses and setbacks seemed forgiven for a moment and but it wasn’t enough for all of them to recover from the shock of what stood before them. Loda and Thondrek turned when the demonic animal’s attention sprang from them to the Sylvari bladesinger. Loda was lost for a moment, upon seeing the enormity of the creature. It was the second time she had blanked out in a battle against these freaks of nature, and she should not make it a habit. Her companion, Gothard, was braver, or perhaps more stupid, and launched himself upon the bear. His teeth tried to pierce the fur and skin, but he yelped as he bit down, and sprang down again with a bleeding mouth.
Thondrek simply stormed toward the bear and launched a blow that would’ve crushed a rock. It pierced the creature’s skin, and cut some of the spiky hairs off, but the monster did not seem to notice or care.

Instead, it sprang forward with a mighty kick from its hind legs and slashed a claw at her as big as her torso. She could jump aside just in time, and landed well balanced in a crouching position, with her blade ready to retort. In the mean time, an aura of light had formed around Alyssia’s body, and now it slowly began to rise, as if a divine hand lifted her from the ground. He fair face glanced upon the beast as a judgemental angel, and she felt the power of Lysora course through her veins.
Malius had fished another arrow from his quiver and knocked it on his bow. Following the movement of the animal he let go, just when the creature landed its attack on the bladesinger. His arrow flew straight into the thick coat of fur, struggled to get through and pierced the flesh underneath. Again, the bear did not react to the impact, so focused was it on the battle closer at hand.
The bladesinger came in with her rapier, slammed the point into the creature’s twisted face and drew it out as she sprang back. It was a mighty attack, but the bear’s leathery nose resisted most of the cut. For a moment it seemed to pause, and its eyes darted back and forth, as if assessing its opponents.

(OOC: I would like to continue, but I realised I don’t have everybody’s information. I would like to know what you all intend to do the following two rounds.)

Londelirinen Kingdom
Sylvari village
4th day of the 8th month: Temoth Ore
7:03 pm


Elessar darted backwards a few steps, out of range of the goblin and his heavy sword. Her hand sought feverishly for the wand around her neck, and caught hold of it. The goblin hesitated one moment, and it was enough for her to sling the chain over her head and free the healing stick. She could feel energy flowing from the stick; a warm bath like a short comfortable heat wave. Her wounds stopped bleeding, but it was hardly enough to regain full strength.

Then he came at her with an overhead hew of his blade. She had anticipated his action and sprang up. She passed his blade by a hair’s width and landed at his rear, where she turned quickly for a back-slash.
As her longsword’s blade completed its course, she already knew this was going to be the final blow. When it hewed its way towards the creature’s heart, Elessar was already drawing it back to take the head from the falling corpse.

Moments later, the head was dangling on its hairs from the bladesinger’s fist. From the outskirts of the village she could see how the battle on the town square had begun fully.
The guard that she had sent to fire oil at the inn from the other side of the village had not completed his course, but was now facing three goblins while others were firing arrows into the combat. Goblins were running around from one end of the square to another. A wall of fire had sprouted upwards from nothing and several dead goblins lay at its base as fuel. The troll was nowhere to be seen, and the goblin captain sat with his back against a wall of a building between himself and the place where the mage and the other guard were supposed to be. He was shouting orders and then rushed over to the other side, where Elessar couldn’t see him. Then suddenly a big ball of fire exploded in the middle of the square, sending goblins flying in all directions. The mage was using her spells wisely, causing death and chaos in the goblin ranks. But she was not going to be able to keep this firepower steady long.


Inhabited Cave
South-west Chakran Mtns.
28th day of the 7th month: Pfier
0:10 pm


Vidar moved on, carefully watching all directions for fishmen to spring at him. He was sure this was going to be another trap, and his trusted axe lay ready in his fist. Slowly he moved into the light, but none of the fishmen made move. Their faces were stoical, devoid of expression; or perhaps Vidar just couldn’t see it.

The fishman dressed in the skeletal outfit beckoned him to come closer still, but when Vidar stepped into the cave, he suddenly moved one hand under the altar and withdrew a long dagger. But before the Khord could react in a hostile way, the fishman did something that stunned the warrior: it spoke in the Khordaldrum language.

“Do not be afraid, my best Khord. We are not here to harm to you. In fact, we are happy of your coming.”

With his other hand he grabbed a fish from under the altar and started slicing it up with the dagger. As the blade rolled through the meat, Vidar realized that this dagger carried the same Seleta as his grandfather’s axe. It was one of the weapons depicted on the leather scroll!

“We know that our previous meeting wasn’t a glad one, but you must pardon me and us for that. I am Glurblusius, Shaman of us Skum. I am going to tell you the matter we are happy of your coming.”

He poured a handful of red and yellow herbs over the fish and handed them over to one of the fishmen. The receiver placed them on a hot stone in a fire further into the cave, and a appetising smell filled the room.
The shaman motioned for Vidar to sit down. Whether or not he took the invitation, the shaman started talking.

The story he shared was a long one. It started with ancestors arriving in the lakes near the Chakran Mountains. They discovered underground tunnels and eventually found these caves. The vastness of the caves was never fully explored by them, but at some point a great monster came from one of the deep lakes inside the mountain. It was the tentacled fish-creature Vidar had witnessed before he was captured. The fish-creature, called Aabouless by the shaman, could control their minds, and made slaves out of them. The shaman himself was born in slavery, but with a special talent. Somehow the brainwaves of the Aabouless could not take over his mind. They had been plotting many schemes to get rid of the monster, but so far nothing succeeded. Now their hopes had returned with the coming of the Khordaldrum hero.

“We are willing to give you anything you want, if you help me and us banish the monster from the lives. I alone am not strong enough, and other Skum get slaved when in close contact with Aabouless. You will help me and us?”

(OOC: Maps coming soon!)

Subject: yep, it's awesome


The Munchkin game is big fun.

I suppose I've done my share of Munchkinism. I made this Alaghi fighter with two two-handed swords who kicked butt with or without weapons. His Thac0 was nowhere near in comparison to the rest of the 7th level party. I knew all the rules and how to manipulate them so that my character was maxed.

Yes, it was cool, but also not. I've learened to appreciate a simple character that has some fun traits over a maxed out killing machine.

I've never hogged treasure though. Been with plenty of people who would kill other players for the nicest share. Sometimes it does make for a nice session when you see other players fighting over stuff

that's pretty much what is happening right now. I messaged Jozan and Valimar about their intentions. I know Kaelyn has a hard time finding an internet connection, and Brianna is around, and I hope Dragon Mistress will pull her sleeve for us

but yeah, if I don't get a notice, I'll have to take action. But I'm not doing so right now because I hope there are other ways. Also, I don't have time to update today, so you guys will have to wait a few days perhaps. I am very sorry, and appologize to both Skari and Dragon Mistress for not continuing their lines on the time-schedule that I set myself.

I appreciate the input, Tann.

Topic: The Chakran Portal - Q/A
Subject: hmmmm


I think we might face ourselves a problem here:

I haven't heard or seen activity from several of our players lately. We're missing Valimar, Jozan, Kaelyn and Brianna. That basically means that I'm running only two of the three story-lines right now.

Which sucks, because soon the story line of Dragon Mistress was going to merge with the main group's. If I can't update for the main group, the time-tables are going to be messed up. But perhaps that also gives opportunities.

I'm having two thoughts right now:

1: I know that the inactivity is most likely due to Real Life issues, so I'm having difficulty killing people off for not posting. I could put them on pause right now, and recruit replacements.... or

2: We continue the game, and I NPC the non-active players, which could mean that some of them die. And since Dragon Mistress will soon be added to the main group there won't be THAT big of a problem with inactivity because the main group has grown than, and she's the most consistent poster on this game.

I would like to know you guy's opinion, since we're in this together after all. What shall we do: continue without players, or find replacements?

you can take a 5 foot step and use your wand on yourself. I don't think that's legal, but it's not really a problem. My goal is not to kill of characters anyway The goblin will not get an attack of opportunity, though I believe he's next with initiative.

Perhaps I just misread, but I though you sent one guard with fiery bottles at the inn, and told the other guard and the mage to wait. In my next update things will change as you had planned them then. The mage is attacking, and the two guards ride together.

One more note: I had already sent one of the guards at the inn, but so far, Elessar is not aware of whether or not he made it to it with his oil.

Glad that's all cleared up

well, there were only two posts, and that's not nearly enough to continue the fight with the bears. I will not update for the main group, but I WILL next week, posts or not. No post means no action, and that can work out pretty nasty.

Londelirinen Kingdom
Sylvari village
4th day of the 8th month: Temoth Ore
7:02 pm


The Goblin in front of Elessarae grinned at her. The grin soon turned into a snarl as he quenched his fists and started to shake. It looked like his muscles started to bulge, and glass splinters that had stuck from his skin darted from him.

The bladesinger had no time for this display of strength, and released the bottle of oil on her new target. The bottle didn’t project from her hand as she would’ve liked, but it splashed on his leg and send a gust of flame over his body. Instead of a scream, the goblin sent a roar of defiance into the evening sky. Elessar jumped from her steed and sent Gharion into the forest for safety.
The goblin jumped at Elessar with a trail of fire from his legs. He seemingly ignored the pain and heaved at the bladesinger with his broadsword. The swing came so fast and hard that she misjudged her block, and its blade cut over her sword and deep into her left arm.
Pain sent her a step backwards, but she focused on her song, and noted how the goblin was slightly taken aback by how her determination. She made a quick step forward and stuck her blade low. The point slid into the creature’s abdomen and a grunt escaped from its lips. With two hands it brought down its thick blade upon the Syl, but his swing came from anger, and was badly placed.
Elessar could evade it and brought a fast slash onto his back, but the cut was not strong enough to penetrate the leather hide around the goblins skin.

Another blow came from her left, and the bladesinger tried to spring away, but was a fraction too late. The tip of the goblins sword cut over her chest and raked her flesh. She retorted with a heave that landed in her opponent’s shoulder and knocked him backwards. It had taken her breath away, and she felt her strength draining. The goblin was cut and bruised, but it was impossible to judge how long he would remain standing. He seemed extremely tough for the normally weak race.

(OOC: It’s up to you to keep fighting or change tactics. Elessar has lost over half her HP, so some healing could be an option.)

Vidar knew there was only one way to go, although he didn’t like it one bit. He was forced to move deeper into the caves, and soon the dead fishmen would be discovered. Then he would be in serious trouble. He had to move fast.

Jogging on his short legs, still feeling groggy from the smell, he moved into the caves beyond. The tunnel led him away from the place where he had been imprisoned and bended southwards. After ten minutes he noted a light up ahead, and as he cautiously walked closer he became aware of a widening cave. From a distance he could see humanoid forms moving around in a room with furniture that looked more solid than anything he had seen so far in these caves. He could not tell if they were fishmen, but moving closer he recognized their scaly hides and tails. His eye fell on a small group of them, gathered around what looked like a stone altar. Behind the altar stood a fishmen with a very peculiar outfit. It looked like an exoskeleton made of old bones and connected by rags of skin and cloth. He was pointing in several directions, and the other fishmen were listening intently.

Then he pointed into the tunnel where Vidar was hiding, and though Vidar could be sure that he was well hidden by distance and darkness, the fishmen motioned for him to come closer. The other fishmen stood watching in the Khord’s direction, and none of them seemed ready to launch an attack.

Alloryen Kingdom
The Exaulted Tower
2nd day of the 8th month: Temoth Ore
5:24 pm


It was with excitement that they entered the tower, two Khords and a human warrior. Excitement, fear, eager anticipation; there were many names for what coursed through their hearts, and all of them related by a tangible tension that made their weapons rock in their hands, or perhaps calm them by an adrenaline rush of steadiness.

The tower appeared as Thondrek described. The ground floor, once a beautiful entrance hall with a wide stairs, was now a wreckage of former glory. They listened intently and peered around for movement with every step they took. Their companions outside were ready for them to suddenly turn and run for it, but everything seemed relatively peaceful. So the three champions took the stairs, carefully, and disappeared onto the next level.

Again, there was no sight of any monsters, but the room was a mess, like it had been described to them. Draven, invisibly, walked up to a spot closer to the wall, as Thondrek and Loda began to rummage around, as had been discussed. They tried to sound genuine, but all the while, their eyes remained on the stairs that led up to the next level. They knew the nest was there, and most likely one or two of the bears. When Loda loudly knocked over a chair, a snarl could be perceived from beyond the stairway. A breath later, the dark opening was filled with brown fur, and two red glowing eyes that locked instantly upon the two Khordaldrum.

The creature didn’t hesitate but broke into a charge, knocking aside furniture as if it wasn’t even there. Loda and Thondrek had already begun their run for the lower level. The twisted bear was faster than one would’ve expected. Its bulging muscles pumped with a strength that looked unearthed, and though the two Khords had quite a head start, this advantage was soon reduced to nothing.

What the running heroes didn’t see, but Draven did, was that a second bear, even larger than the first, had also come down from the nesting level. It moved slower, more careful and aware of its surroundings. It followed the trail of destruction that its mate had left behind, and wanted to descend the stairs as well, when something caught its eye.

Outside the tower, Geim, Malius, Alyssia and Lady Quilanday stood waiting for action to break loose. Suddenly a wicked snarling rose from the entrance, and as it gained volume, their two Khordish companions came running from the opening. In their trail followed a mass of fur and muscle, the former shape of a bear, but twisted so that it almost resembled a humanoid form. It was inches away from grabbing Thondrek, when both Khords broke from the castle and scattered in opposite directions.
The creature sprang into the sunlight, and Geim saw his chance. From behind the door he swung his axe and planted it straight in the monster’s hide. It would’ve been an almost deadly blow had it been aimed at a normal animal, but it bounced from the stone-hard coating and sent the blade backwards.
Malius too had been waiting for a good shot. From a safer distance he launched his arrow and saw it planted upon the creature’s shoulder. It struck true, but the monster seemed not to notice it, and continued.
It was then that the lady bladesinger came into action. She jumped forward and flashed her rapier over the bear’s face. It cut a bloody gash, but the impact was not as deep as she would’ve liked. And now the creature’s attention was on her. She darted back a few steps and stood ready for what was coming.

Inside the tower, Draven had activated the ring of Mage Hand and the LightSource gem that Guland had given them. The dangling gem had found the attention of the bear and now it was chasing the item around the room.
While the creature was distracted Draven had a most difficult time with what lay ahead. He was going to have to move down the stairs and lock the door, while the light would still be moving around. The ceilings were too low for it to just hang somewhere and keep the bear occupied.
Thus, moving very slowly and carefully, the warrior stepped towards the staircase. He was glad for the stealthy ways of his life, for all the practice came in handy now. Concentrating hard he moved steadily down the stairs and made for the door. He grabbed the door, and after a single look outside he pulled it close. Turning the key he locked himself in with a bear that at that very moment closed its teeth around the glowing gem and swallowed.


Londelirinen Kingdom
Runya Nost
4th day of the 8th month: Temoth Ore
4:02 pm


A dangerous task lay ahead of Elessarae: riding around the village while the goblins fired arrow after arrow at her. She had given her orders, and could only hope the guards and the mage would do as well as she hoped. She had to focus on her own part of the strategy. But amidst the wild battle calls from the village she found an inner peace as she moved into the closest rim of the forest surrounding the village.
Arrows flew overhead, some whisping her hair or Gharion’s manes, but only one of them sheered close enough for its point to scrape her arm. The pain was like a thorny bush scratching at her, a feeling she was used to, and very able to shut out. The concentration for the shot remained.

Futher she moved, and now she could look into the goblin ranks. They had formed several small troops at strategic points around the village square, using the buildings as shelter. As she approached the barn she lit the first flask of oil. More arrows came flying at her, and again one of them cut her open. She remained her hold on the fire bottle and then came into reach of the haystack. The bottle flew and landed right in the hay, where it exploded, but Elessar had already moved ahead. Another swarm of arrows came her way, and again, only one of them knew to hit her. She grit her teeth to bite away the stinging and raised her second bottle of oil.
She aimed well for the window in the barn, but it was a very difficult throw as she was not used to throwing from horseback. The flask went through the opening though, but its neck crashed into the sill and it exploded slightly earlier.

She was sheltered behind the barn, so arrows could not harm her here, but she was struck anyway, by a sudden realization. From her point of view, she could see a flash of the town square and the several groups of goblins that were gathered there. In that flash she had seen the troll standing on the other side of the village. She had been ready to throw her last bottle into the barn, but had to rethink her action.

Then a crashing sound snapped her attention back to herself. From the inn, only several feet away, a goblin came crashing through a window, shattering the glass. He somersaulted onto the forest floor, covered in glass, but it did not seem to bother him. He seemed slightly larger than the goblins she had witnessed thus far. In his hands was a broad sword, and his gaze was upon Elessarae and her steed.


Skari’s update will follow soon.

Topic: Evil Campaign
Subject: evil players


One thing that you need to be extremely careful of is players pissing off other players too much. If one player kills off another on high(er) level he is not going to appreciate it. UNLESS you have a backup plan: like: now you're dead, but you can come back as...

you understand what I mean.

I have DMed an evil campaign once. It was a simple story: the good forces of the world had driven all evil back into a valley, and the evil guys wanted out. The players were supposed to take over the world again, and were going to find out that evil never really died (you can't just whipe out evil, because it's in everybody). Unfortunately the campaign never lasted beyond the first session and that was nowhere near enough for them to come past the first real obstacles.
The reason it died was that some players didn't like playing evil as much as they had thought.

It takes a strong and witty DM to host a game for just evil chars, since the first thing players will do is mess with each others characters. Think ahead, and take steps before they do.

Perhaps your screen resolution is too high or something. I have enhanced the map, and put up where you are coming from (labeled), and where the shooting is coming from (stars). You can't see actual goblins or whatever, but you can hear them. You are about 100 feet away from the village right now.

The colours in the background don't even matter that much, but the green is pretty much where the forest starts, and the browns are soggy dirt grounds.

This is as big as I'm making this map, and I think it's perfectly understandable. Besides, if I make it bigger, Olan is going to complain about using up too much bandwidth.

As the painter left satisfied with his sketches of the bladesinger and her steeds, Elessar too walked away from the patio. She readied herself and Gharion for another trip, and was soon joined by two male guards on horses, one of them carrying an extra passenger in the form of a female mage. The two guards introduced themselves as Hivalus and Mirnando, and the mage bowed and expressed submissively: “Luronya, at your service. Direct us, and we shall follow your lead.”

They trusted themselves in her care. She now bore a responsibility over them like she had never had over another Sylvari. She was steadily becoming a real bladesinger.

The two guards carried with them the supplies Elessarae had asked for: four tindertwigs, 8 bottles of volatile oil and one scroll of Burning Hands for herself to use.

Soon after introductions, the Flame Keep was already lost beyond a wall of trees. Once more Elessar was on the road, carried by Gharion and flanked by Comrade, the two horses she had endured so much with already. She had ridden the path to the Sylvari town before, but it was difficult to find a second time. It was as if the forest had changed slightly. As if it was shifting uncomfortably by more than a change in season. But when the sun had begun its descent and dressed the heavens in orange and pink, they found the village.
It looked empty from afar. Could the goblins have deserted it already?

But then an arrow flow from beyond a building, followed by a second one. Both missed and flew out of range, and they could hear shouts in the harsh language of the green skinned. Apparently the goblins had expected a return, and were ready to face it.

(OOC: I’ll post a small map of the village as you have seen it last time. That may help you visualize things)


Alloryen Kingdom
The Exaulted Tower
2nd day of the 8th month: Temoth Ore
5:23 pm


And so it was decided that only one of the bears would be taken on, if possible. But the plan was thin and sprouted holes yet. What spells would be up, which places would be taken? Again Thondrek explained the layout of the tower, and more discussion followed.

Would Draven lock the door while standing inside or outside the tower?
Who would be standing where?
What would be done if the plan didn’t work?

(OOC: My appologies for the lame short post, but I could definately use a little more information before I unleash one or two of these creatures on you guys. I'll be posting a map in the Q/A shortly, think and discuss please. I’ll make an update somewhere this week, as soon as I know where everybody will be placed.)


Inhabited Cave
South-west Chakran Mtns.
28th day of the 7th month: Pfier

Dragging his pride with him, Vidar pushed against the stench and entered the chamber. Breathing through his mouth he warded the worst of the smell, but the air in the chamber felt solid with nauseating gasses. Doing his best not to vomit Vidar clamped a hand over his lips, but he could not withhold the convulsion in his stomach and a stream of chunky liquid sprayed between his fingers. He felt sick, but kept an alert eye for the approaching fishmen. They could’ve heard the sounds of his choked vomiting, and then he would be trapped.

Footsteps drew closer, and then they came into sight. There were three of them, and one bore a torch in his hand that cast stars of reflection on the wet tunnels. They peered into the junk room, but quickly left the place alone, and continued into the hall and headed for the area where Vidar had killed their relatives. He looked around for something to use as a shield. There was nothing nearby, so he got up and searched the room on shaking legs. Again he felt an urge to vomit, but he could keep it in this time. Under a slimy membrane he found a mouldy goblin shield. It wasn’t in very good condition, but it was better than having no shield at all.

The question returned to him; where to go now?
