If you DM write the epilogue for all to read and enjoy... I'll post something along the lines of sitting Vanima down around a fire or what not and explaining the story from an in character perspective for some between game flavour text.

Topic: For Whom the Bell Tolls Q&A
Subject: Three hundred and treasure...


the three hundred should have been paid for as folows.

Emmy -75gp
Isilifeline-50
Arys-75gp
Cdnflirt-50 (She was there for that adventure and each of our characters started with at least 50gp in assorted coin)
-50 from party treasure

That's 300gold...

SilentOne and I have agreed to pay the extra..

Aliira has no material wealth, and Derry wasn't involved with the ransoming.. (nor does he have any extra money to spare.



~~~~
As for Treasure..
I say divy up the party treasure amongst the players who participated in the adventure (money only) and include the 'party fund' as an extra player. That share will cover all party expenses, inn stays, (potential future ransoms and what not)

ALiira may (and this is up to Ginafae decide to simply put her share into the party fund and be happy so long as she is able to have all her necessities taken care of. (Ie some 5gp armor or a potion now and then isn't going to break anyone's bank and she's a valued member of the party. But her character concept as described by herself wouldn't have much use for currency.

Cdnflirt wasn't there for this last adventure, so while she wouldn't get a cut from that bounty... don't forget her from the previous one! (our mage needs some lovin too!)

As always all items should be identified if deemed magical by cdnflirts or Derry's character (our resident magic users) Then discussed here in q/a or in early prechat sessions.

Shiny?

Katriana feels the weight of the coin purse in her paws, it is heavier than anything she has ever carried in almost 10 years. Once, when she was younger and foolish, she had 'appropriated' a marble bust of a mayor that weight about the same as this bag of coin, but that had been many moons ago.

"This is a most generous offering. I would have your name stranger. I am Katriana Felinar, Warder of the (DM insert commonly known Paladin/ knightly order of Ragnarok/ Good aligned Pantheon here.) On behalf of the fallen I most graciously accept your gift, and swear to see it go to the purpose in which it was given in faith."

Katriana carefully ties the money pouch to her belt, and bows humbly towards Lheriel.

Subject: agasp...


Katriana turns to another strange traveler aboard the voyage a look o utter disbeli on her face.

"To think such unfettered kindness and generosity still abounds in this world touches me greatly, but surely no greater than she who will live again by your aid. I have only seen the rite performed a select few time on those worthy enough to be granted life anew, but the component.. a diamond of some value is required. As far as I know from what an old warpriest said, the diamond had to be of the purest grade, worth over 5,000 crowns at least. It is a hefty price for any man I'd wager, but the loss of gold will surely weigh volumes on the scales of your life for your kindness here."

She lets him mull that over a moment; a look of hope on her face.

Thondrek stood aside his companions, the blood flowing through his veins as battle awakened the inner part of any true Khord, the part deep inside that caused the heart tobeat with the intensity of a hammer to the anvil, and his blood raced as though the billows had set his heart afire with renewed vigor.

"About time we take a notch out of the root of the problem." Thondrek said as they stood agaze at the willow. Seeing the ground however, Thondrek had to wonder what exactly the plan of approach was... until he remembered the amulet they had acquired some time ago.

(Turning to whomever is carrying the ring of Mage hand)

"Hey, can't we use the powers of the trinket to levitate the flask of weed eatin goodness over to the tree without getting close? I'd much rather not be steppin under them branches if at all possible."

Topic: ~*Whom Gods Annoy*~
Subject: Done and Done..


The leap had saved her life.. With flames licking at the end of her tail, and soon claiming the hip in a great crackle as it capsized and sank, the ash sodden Katriana stood with Kumadel’s limp form in her arms safely aboard the Saucy Wench. It took her a moment before she gently laid the body down, removing, folding neatly, and placing her own cloak under the fallen comrades’ head as though she were but sleeping, caught in a peaceful dream from which she chose not to awaken.

With her cloak removed, Katriana was in full view to everyone. And what a view it was. Long slender legs ending in pawed feet flexed as she moved towards Raen and Nebulos, the toned muscles evident even under her fur. She wore only a simple gold hued set of undergarments, really nothing more than a bra and panties in material which scarely hid her ample bosom or muscular thighs, and by her nonchalant and demure behaviour it was evident even those meager materials for modest humanoid concerns rather than her own taste in fashion.

Aside from the undergarments, and a simple rope belt holding some pouches on the side, Katriana was bare of any form of weapon or armor.. The felinoid moved with grace and dignity towards Neblulos and the tempered Raen. She moved to interject, but Raen took her leave of the situation with cursory resignation.

Turning to Nebulos Katriana locked her emerald hued eyes to his.

“Rash decisions have cost an innocent their life, and it is your duty to seek redemption for your actions. For now, all I can ask for is whatever monetary items of value you have, that can be sold or used to purchase the means to restore this good natured child of the earth back to life. I carry little in the means of currency, and will likely have to sell her own equipment for her second chance at life. I think losing some material items is a paltry price for the restoring of a stolen life”

Katriana looks to Nebulos for a reply, a stern, but wise look upon her face.

(Allowing for Devalero’s reply / actions / backposting)

The captain too had seen fit to speak up, and request further assistance from the already proven unpredictable travelers.

”My worthy comrades,” he began, his voice quivering, “I knew you not well, but even still you did risk your lives to protect my ship…and its cargo. One of your number has fallen as well, in combat with these foul brigands and as such I can demand nothing from you.” He turned to face Nebulos, ”Despite your brash and thoughtless ways, mage, you saved my crew and I from what could have been death, and so I can demand no compensation from you for the minor damage you have caused my ship. I will however, ask one thing of you.” He turned to face the great part of the group. ”We carry little cargo, but there is one thing we have aboard that is…special. It is my belief that the pirates you so dispatched intended to take it, although for what reason I cannot imagine. If you will permit me one thing, I must ask that when we do dock in Camatcha, you take it with you and deliver it to a man named Kaene you will find there. This thing maybe have already endangered enough lives as it is, and perhaps you are the safer choice to deliver it…”

Katriana turned to face the captain, a good man by all accounts, a man she had traveled with once before though the ride had been much shorter and less … interesting. “I will see your trinket delivered, but need also tend to catering to the fallen’s needs. There is much work to be done. If anyone here, can find it in their hearts to donate to this most worthy cause, then please, I ask you do so, that I might take this poor soul to a local church and attempt to have them restored to take on life anew. I am sure they will be eternally grateful for any assistance.”

Seeing as this seemed the time to be making requests, Katriana hopes that some small fund might be raised, anything at all to help give a stranger she hardly knew, a warrior without a name a second chance at life… Katriana in a sense had been given such a chance, Karma dictated she attempt to grant the same gift to another.

(KAtriana will be Carrying Kumadel's body to a local Church of a good aligned deity (preferrably RAgnarok where she can relate the story and hope for some sympathy to the fallen's situation. She will (if she has enough money from donations and selling whatever Nebulos/ others/ or even Kumadel's own ring of Jump or other items (I can't see what she has as I have no clue..) Then she'll try and get a raise dead cast on her.. (I know the -1 Con sucks, but at least you can play again Philo )

Subject: Answers


Answers...

Linnix/Reralae: While the reasons yo gave for suspecting Linnix's denial of a sneak attack are all relevent, the more simle reason she wouldn't get it is because the Spider has 'all around vision'. It's multiple faceted eyes-and multiple eyes- prevent it from being flanked thus preventing it from bein sbjected to sneak attack in this case.

As for the skill points. I've reviewed the sheet and tend to agree that 2 more points are needed. As such i've renamed Pick Pocket sleight of hand, and added 2 ranks for a total of +5 in tumble.

Aelistae/Ginafae: I had you stand, and the Spider's missed atttack was his AoO, putting you at the top of the order for the next round. (As you'l notice in previous combat posts, te order of attacks change, as initiative is a round based thing for me, not once per battle as some do.)

Loriel/Brianna: Yes the orc unfortunately got a critical on poor Moonshadow. Ginafae is correct in this case, you would have to shoulder your bow or at the very least hold it one handed whie trying to pull the spear from Moonshadow. It would take a standard action to do so, a full round action if you were being particularly delicate. Moonshadow himself is trying to break the shaft with his bite and pawing at it, but again that could take more time tha you have what with three orcs approaching.

Xaris/ Jozan. I see you online... post something buddy.

et all: Some more Cd points have been given.. take a looksie!

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: up above


Up above, the orcs had rounded the open door only to find a pair of elven fletched arrows sailing down the hallway at them. Both arrows thudded into the lead orc, staggering him where he stood, halting his advance long enough for him to look at the shafts protruding from his chest before dropping to the floor. As his three companions hurried past, Moonshadow stepped forward to protect Loriel, but was met by a short barrage of javelins. Two of the half-spears –sharpened sticks really—veered wide clattering against the wall and floor, but the third flew miraculously straight, catching the wolf right in it’s mouth as it bared it’s fangs at the enemy. The projectile tore through the side of Moonshadow’s mouth, blood spurting from the wound and preventing the wolf from closing its mouth properly. All the poor creature could do was wimper through the pain as it tried to bite through the haft of the crude spear. (-12hp Moonshadow) (16/33hp)

Artanis could see that her friends were in trouble, and decided she would chance bypassing the swinging scythe blade. She watched it pass once, then again, trying to get the timing just right as she prepared to jump past it on the left side while it was at the apex of its rightward ascent. Hoping she had made the right choice, she leapt past the swinging scythe, the blade coming back behind her close enough for her to feel the wind against her neck, the hairs on her nape standing on end.
At least she was on the right side of the damn thing…

Moving to stand on Loriel’s left, directly behind the wounded Moonshadow, Artanis readied her actions.

Kas approached the problematic scythe blade with a different line of thought. Drawing her daggers, she looked skyward, though her gaze was blocked by a stone ceiling. There, at the top of the chain to which the scythe blade was affixed was a mechanism which looked like a giant hinge. Half of the contraption was hidden in the ceiling itself, but she could see where the chain entered the casing. Hoping to jam the mechanism, she throws a dagger into the works, but the small space is too tough a target, and her dagger clatters harmlessly to the floor, much to the warriors’ dismay.

Xaris, watching the scythe blade which was half as large as he was swinging so close to him stood mesmerized by the almost hypnotic sway of steel and death.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Down below.


The fall had jarred the senses from Aelistae and Linnix, but the sound of clicking mandibles and the sight of multiple shimmering eyes had sanped both women back to the fullest of attention. Linnix had kicked her candle orb in the direction of the beast the half globe sliding only a couple feet before being tangled in more webbing. The light shone on to barely cast the faintest of glow upon the creature, but not enough to grant a sense of depth or size in accurate proportion.

Aelistae of course had no problems with seeing the arachnid in all its horror. The creature was easily 10feet tall, with its legs stretching almost double the size of its man-sized body. Quickly placing herself between the spider and Linnix, Aelistae drinks from her vial of anti-toxin. With a curse and a prayer in the same span of breath, Aelistae drew her intricately unique blade of the ancestral surface elves, and prepared to fight.

Linnix, more than hapy to have a body between her and the hideous creature before them fixed a bolt into the chamber of her crossbow, rose to a upright position, and prepared to do whatever it took to survive.

Linnix was actually the first to act, not waiting for more of the spider to come into view before loosing a bolt from her crossbow with a faint ‘click’. The wire snapped and the projectile sailed for at incredible speed. It sank into the bulbous back of the spider which let out a stream of sticky web in response.

Aelistae attempted to move out of the way, but her regard for Linnix’s safety caused her to hesitate a split second, and she took the brunt of the web, which ensnared her in a sticky glob. She struggled against her silky prison, but could not break free. What was worse, was that the spider had begun retracting it’s webbing with it’s forelegs and clicked it’s mandibles hungrily as Aelistae was slowly pulled forward towards it’s hungry maw.
(Aelisae has fallen over and is prone and entangled.’)

Linnix, Doing the only thing she could think of, let her crossbow fall to the side and switched to her trusty daggers, and began sawing away at the strands of web which bound her friend. It took a surprising amount of effort to cut through the tensile strands. But eventually she had Aelistae free, and with little room to spare, for she was a mere 5’ before the monstrous spider as she rose to her feet.

Outraged that its meal might escape, the spider lunged forward, its great mandibles scraping across Aelistae’s armor, but not piercing it.

Free of the bindings, it was time for the women to even the playing field…

Topic: Pool of Radiance
Subject: Mourn Evening Fall ~Post 1


The road to Drungelle had been pleasant enough. With few complications along the way and four weeks of travel under their belt, the journey had finally taken the companions to their clairvoyant destination. As the small community came into view Mourn was reminded of home, back in the treetops of Evermeet. Surely this place lacked the luster or grandeur of his city nestled in the boughs of the great forest, but the feeling of simplicity and hospitality held a nostalgic feel for the sun elf; it had been some time since he had ventured back to the safety of his native haven. He and Aramil had traveled the roads a long time his clerical companions his only constant anchor to the word they had left behind in the pursuit of answers and adventure.

As the quaint homesteads passed the companions on the left and right Mourn lowers the hood of his robes, letting the fresh crisp air dance across his fair skin. For a sun elf, he is particularly beautiful even for his race, and to add to his allure, he is rather toned and has the physique of someone who has traversed the Realms and gotten into a fair share of scraps, rather than simply sit behind stuff old tomes and scrolls all his life.

Aramil too, is honed for combat, the cleric of Mystra having dedicated her life to the teachings of the Goddess of magic, and to understanding the hidden properties of the mystical force known as the weave.

The cleric walks aside Mourn, her shield and Morningstar clattering softly against her metal adorned body as she walks, links of chain and plates of steel dinging faintly with each heavy footfall. As the party moves through the village, they are approached by an interesting pair.

" We welcome you to Drungelle, a small and cozy town that makes you feel right at home, no matter who you are."

She looked at the faces of each adventurer, looking from Raolonlo, Karlana, Mourn, Brendella, Aramil, and then even Maximillion. She looked at each one with a deeply saddened face, but tried to hide it. She looked at herself, and almost looked like she snapped out of a trance.

" Oh my, I bet your wondering why I am dressed like this. Well, its a sad story that I must tell you. But first I need to say that we need your help. Four of our beloved people have vanished. There names are Tren, Wenta, Jorsh, and my nehew...Ristim. They all have vanished. We have searched and searched but do not know where they are. I think it's just bandits wanting a ransom, and I expect to get one soon, but the parents of these young people wanted action now. I didn't know what to do, I am just glad your here!"

She takes a step back, and looks to the ground.

" Oh, I am sorry. You people have just come here and now I am throwing all of this at you. I probably just detered you away from here. I'm sorry let me properly introduce myself. My name is Venithia. And this is Dunalel."

They both smile and nod, greeting the party. Dunalel raises his wrinkled hand from her arm and speaks slowly.

" I would just like to thank you for coming to our town and as I have already been introduced I would like to add I am one of the priests of Chauntea that live here. I know Venithia has said everything that is needed to know to you all, and before you turn and go away from this sudden attack of information I would just like to say that there is a reward we have pooled together. It was going to be the possible ransom, but they dont need it."

He smiles and blinks slowly, as if age is slowly creeping up on him, ready to take him at any moment.

Mourn stood in calm silence, typical of him as his companions knew he was a man of few words unless relevant and pertinent to the situation at hand. Aramil however was much more openly opinionated in her beliefs.

“Bandits and brigands, the lot of them should be drawn and quartered. Their can be no place in Mystra’s… or Chauntea’s eden for lawless vagabonds and ruffians.” Aramil turns to her companions. “The visions we had have led us here, though we seek a reason as to why. Perhaps it is to save these four innocents. Perhaps these four are destined for future greatness themselves, if we but grant them the opportunity to live to see that future!” It was obvious the cleric was getting excited over the prospect of playing hero once again, but Mourn interjected with his analytical—if not often blunt—point of view.

“There has been no sign of struggle or ransom, these missing could be off playing heroes and goblins in the nearby vale, or even holding themselves ransom, awaiting their poor parents to send them money before walking home unscathed and claiming the victims role. We need more information before anything can be ascertained… When they went missing, where their homes and local hang-outs are… Karlana should be able to track anything that’s traceable, providing the weather hasn’t cleared away the path. But we can’t go anywhere until we have an Idea of who we’re looking for. I think Karlana has the right idea. Let us dine, and discuss the details relevant to the situation, then if deemed of dire consequence, our band can take up the chase. What say you all?”

Mourn let’s his question hang in the air, he respected the thoughts of those he chose to travel with, they would each add insight to this slowly unraveling string of mystery.
