Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: starting up again


With winter ending, and the funds of the wizard running out, it is time to look for employment and adventure. There is a trade route between Portua and Sundel that passes through the Railir Peaks. Due to the mountain terrain and the rugged wasteland of this stretch of land, many creatures and monsters call it home as well as a few less savoury human folks as well. Mostly, it is home to many "Gobbers" as the locals call them, humanoid creatures that are kin to the goblins of old. So caravans passing through the peaks are always looking for sellswords to guard them on the route.

It is not as perilous of a task as it once was - years ago the pass was a deadtrap and the politics of Pardinal prevented the resolution of who was in charge of the pass. But the land is equally under the protection of the Major of Portua and the Governor of Sundel. To keep things equal and fair, the garrison of men who patrol the pass and keep the monsters down is under the command of a King's Rider named Darrin Wyll. In fact, last year Darrin and his men had to fight a resurgence of Gobbers attacking caravans, found a large lair of them and killed them all, bring back the head of the Gobber King for all to see.

But even the King's rider and his men cannot be everywhere so caravans hire men for protection and the losses are kept to a minimum. So it was that you were hired by a group of merchants looking to move their goods to Sundel - four wagons of root vegetables and apples. hey it was work and after a few months stuck in the inn, you were glad to be on the road again.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: continue


The last of the wererats dies on the end of Arien’s sword. Although a tiring battle, the opponent was not up to the level of skill and prowess that the party had available. There was no satisfaction to this victory – it had been a slaughter.

There is nothing in the way of possessions on the dead and the cavern reeks now of burned flesh and rat dung. Time to move on.

Three entrances to a tomb. The bard remembers from the tales that the middle one was the one to the actual tomb before, where the other two were traps. Looking down the corridors, the two side entrances end shortly after 20-30 feet with stone walls and debris.

The corridor is long and the floor is pocketed with open pits, traps long ago sprung on invading robbers. The frescos on the walls are faded and almost indecipherable. There is a faded red pathway draw on the floor but like the frescos, it is barely there. About 40-50 feet down, on the west (right), is an opening where a (presumed) secret door once stood, now long gone.

The hallway is very cold and you can see down pass the former secret door there are skeletons of "men" seemingly frozen in chunks of ice. The skeleton bear no weapons or armour, they are just frozen there.

For all appearances, it looks like no one has been here for years.

Map coming

Topic: The Gobber King- QnA
Subject: the loot


Loot From Putman:

The Sword of Night - Blade looks like the night sky. The sword is +1 to hit and damage in the day or underground, but under the night sky the sword is +2 to hit and damage and gives ultravision to the wielder up to 60 feet. (Crow)

The Metamorph - A silver ball that can morph into any hand held weapon of a long sword size or smaller. The MM cannot be used as a missile weapon as it turns to a liquid metal ball if released. All weapons formed are +1 in nature. (Wembley)

The Boomstick - A Wand of Wonder with a big button to activate (see Alacrity's magic items). 19 charges left and the red end the point to aim. (Dudley)

The Staff – So far the staff give +2 protection,” Feather Fall” permanent and is a +2 weapon. At the point of the game start, Alondas has not figured out any command words (Alondas)

Double Crossbow+2, Mageslayer. A single use item as it is not made to be reloaded. The quarrels are loaded with a poison that neutralizes a mage’s ability to draw mana. The magic is very dark and is probably quite evil.

Two potions of healing

A crystal necklace that if broken will teleport you to the lair of the evil archlich that rules Sendaria.

A silver Pitcher that if you say “Mead” fills with a high quality Mead. Works three times a day.

A small Brazier that is enchanted to burn without fuel (Command: fire/extinguish) and will follow you like a dog if you say “here boy” (cannot be over 20 feet away, walks with iron legs and not fast)

Note - I will allow Dudley to trade the Wand of Wonder for the Metamorph if you'd like. A wand of Wonder sounds fun but it can very easily kill the party in the wrong situation.

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: and here we go - summed up


After defeating the Iron Men in the trophy room, the party continued upwards to the portal in the roof that took them to the second floor and through a portal on the floor of a grotto made of crystal. In this room you found the usual four portals in the direction of the compass and a strange wooden door that you could not open with might or magic. The wood door had no lock to pick, no handle to open but had a symbol of a bird’s wing engraved deep in the centre. The door was also warm to the touch and seems to have a slight vibration to it.

Crow found signs in the dirt of the floor and the walls that someone had been through this room and recently. The Syl Ranger was pretty sure it was another group of warriors similar to your party, 6 in number with one of them being very large.

From the Grotto you moved to the Golem Lab where the mage created the metal men and the wooden servant creations. There you had hoped to move to Putnam’s personal chambers but something strange happened, the portals started to flicker and disappear for a moment and then reappear.

You were forced to move to the Library where you met up with an old wizard like character who ordered you to leave the premise immediately. After several attempts to engage him in a conversation or even get directions as two how to leave, the old man began attacking you – with fire spells! The library lit up like a torch from his reckless actions and after several attempts to subdue him, you realized that the wizard was just another re-creation although much closer to real life than the others you had seen. Forced to flee because of the fire, you are saddened by the loss of knowledge and (priceless) books from this destructive simulacrum.

You moved to The Garden room which was set up with magical light from the ceiling and a huge domed ceiling. In the centre of the room was a fountain of water which healed wounds and refreshed fatigue as you drank. The garden was beautiful, full of flowers and herbs that filled the air with wonderful scents.
There were five large trees in the garden, and one drew Dudley to it on a spiritual level (as if it was calling him). As the Cidal approached the tree, he realized that looking at it from a certain angle; the tree looked like a winged person. When he touched the tree, something called out to him.

And all hell broke loose. The garden turned dark and evil in an instant. The roses attacked to draw and drink blood, the flowers reached up and bound limbs and the four other trees attacked with branches. Spores filled the air, clogging your noses and breathing and if it wasn’t for the fountain of healing, you would have died a quick death. After some exaggerated gardening, Dudley was able to touch the one tree and immerse his soul with the spirit in the tree. Turns out, Putnam had attracted the attention of a Celestial who tried to dispatched the Evil Mage but was unfortunately captured. The angelic creature was used as a magical “power source” for this fantastic lair and all its magic, but the Planetar was dying now, and losing its energy. This is why the portals were failing and soon this whole place would collapse. The Celestial gave Dudley a wooden emblem of a wing to use on the door in the grotto. The grotto was the last place that he felt Putman’s presence but he suspects that the Mage was attempting to transform into a Lich. If that was true, he had to be destroyed before the change was complete and before the angel died.

Looking at the map you determined that the fastest route was to the Enchantment lab and then to the grotto. Taking that path worked as the portal held firm for you but when you entered the Grotto, you were beset upon by the party of adventurers that were here before. There was a mighty battle between the two groups but all of you proved victorious and their large half-ogre warrior was rendered useless by his allergies to cats (Ivan).
Using the wooden symbol, you entered the grotto hidden room not knowing what you would face. There you found the body of an old mage next to a “lake” within the cave. Next to the dead mage was a dark potion that swirled and oozed with power and corruption. Upon examining the body, you find no wounds or signs of attack. In the end you surmise that he died of natural causes before he could drink the potion that would change him to a lich.

The cave began to shake and the crystal of the cave started to crack, the angel was no longer able to cling to life. You looked for a portal or a door but found nothing. Just as you were about to despair, Dudley decide to dive into the lake, here he found a portal holding strong at the bottom of the lake. You all swam to the portal, even Ivan after much debate. Alondas grabbed the old wizard’s staff before he left, hoping it would have potent magic to it.

Through the portal you found yourself in dark room with no more portals and only one door. You exited through the door to find yourself in the city of Portua, at the Red Dog Inn. Patrons and owners were not as surprised by your entrance as you expected. You entered through what they called “The Wizard closet” and they had been serving a man through that door for years. They had a standing order to serve anyone who came through that door and the wizard had hefty deposit they drew from to cover expenses. How could they help you?

Ivan did not appear with you at the inn. You had no idea of his fate but you hoped he found his way home again.

Winter was setting in and there would be little adventuring to be had for the next few months. Putnam left you a legacy that would cover your expenses for staying a the Inn that time plus enough to re-equip yourselves for the coming spring. Gamard, Mal, and Wembley decide to move on after the winter and you meet a few other adventurers as they came to Portua as well.
