Subject: Bob has to say goodbye and offer some advice


Stardate: 2366.10.21
USS Discovery, Personal Quarter – 11:30 am


Lt Bob N’doog wasn’t afraid to face many things. He’d surf the waves of Waikiki, boarded in Whistler, body slammed in rapids of Epson XII and skateboarded the sand tubes on Santara Prime (not legally of course, but like who could resist). However it was with some trepidation that he stood outside the door of the soon to be departing Commander Avanti.After all, Commander Avanti was a big guy who liked to keep to himself. He pressed the door chime with a dramatic flair.

=/= Enter =/=

Bob walked in to see the oversized ex chief engineer packing up his stuff. He was dressed in Command red now, which to Bob’s mind was a mistake. After all, Avanti was a dude in the groove with a Jefferies Tube. But that wasn’t what he was here to talk about.

“Commanderdude. Looking spiffy.”

Avanti smiled, “Thank you Ensign …I’m sorry I mean Lieutenant. What can I do for you?”

“Well saying bye is the alibi but I wanted to speak to you – dude to dude.” Bob paced as he talked, “Been a slice working with you man, and I mean like a cream pie slice with extra dollop of whip cream. I remember when you told like do this with that , and I was like whoa, and you were were like dude, and I was like…..”

Avanti cleared his thought, “Bob? Where is this going? I have things to do?”

“Sorry Commanderdude. It’s you and Sango. Now I shouldn’t try to board on another man’s escalator, but I think you are missing out here dude. There is serious vibes between you two and sometimes you got to ask yourself, if I was making the regulations, would I be changing the deal here? You dig? Take life by the hand and run with it man!”

Avanti stared at the Engineer like he was speaking another language. “Thank you…for that advice Bob. I will take it under advisement.”

“You do that Commanderdude. You must be thinking on the same wave as you are taking her with you. I copy that loud and clear sir.” And Bob gave the Domtarian a dramatic salute. “Good sailing Bro. Hope we work again on the fly, couple of guys and some toasted rye.”

“Goodbye Bob. It was a pleasure working with you too.”

His mission fulfilled, Bob N’doog left Avanti’s room to head up the bridge. Dude’s not gonna know what hit him. he thought sadly.

Soon my young Knight. very soon. Tallest Tower, highest room.

in case you were wondering

CWWLLO is a high fantasy campaign. Lots of magic running around, monsters, dragons, demons, and the whole nine yards.

Characters will be around 6th level. You will get some starting magic, about three items and two potions. Ability scores should total 90, with only one ability being an 18.

The alignment of the party is good. Dapple is more true neutral than good, but she's my wife and gets away with alot becuase of that. The thread is still available on the old website, and it is a good read. To start the campaign again, I have dropped a lot of the subplots created - to use them again later.

It takes place on the Oerth map, but not with the Greyhawk history. The Iron League is an alliance of southern countries that basically produce 80% of the world's iron. They are also allied with the four major naval powers to provide shipping. Needless to say, they are quite rich. Officially, the Iron League stays neutral, but they are cautious of the Empire above them.

The Miltary branch of the Empire is engaged in a war to the north and to the west. In the North, they attempt to subdue the barbarian clans, mostly to get at the mountain ranges there and the possible resources. Unfortunately for them, every winter they get bogged down by snow and the barbarian clans take back all the land they lost over the summer. This has been going on for ten years now. To the east, five+ provinces of the Empire have separated and become their own country. Legionaires are fighting legionaires and the whole scene is messy. The emperor (Fax XXIV) spends his time locked away with his consort Brenda. The senate is running the show and assassination along with the sale of senate seats has become a boom industry.

That's the world in a nutshell.

Module 1 - Antonio, Orlando and Dawn

So it began …

Dwan Granitecrusher, leader of the Iron League and ruler of the city of Freegate had a dilemma. One of his most trusted vassals had stop sending regular couriers from the fiefdom. This is not normally an issue, usually trying to get regular reports was the problem, but Sir Antonio was different. He took duty and order to a new level and Dwan could set his clock by the arrival of the weekly courier from the valley.

But Dwan didn’t have the manpower to send a patrol to Antonio’s castle. It was in a remote valley, five days ride from the city and frankly there were other issues that needed attention.

To the north, The Imperial Empire was a constant threat. No longer the great power it once was, the Empire was slowly dying, plagued by in fighting, political plotting, wars on too many fronts and a neglectful emperor. Upstart military commanders within the Empire were thinking coups and the iron league was very wealthy. On top of all that, troops were deserting from the imperial military in droves, seeking the life of freedom and banditry instead of hardship and promises of eventual pay. Not just the usually troop desertions either, the grey infantry, but the elite guards (blues), the special forces (greens) and the mage corps (reds) were also running for the chaos. Dwan was swamped.

So he hired a group of sellsword adventurers to go to Antonio’s castle and find out what was wrong. There was Char – a ranger, Shona – a gladiator/warrior, Dapple Moon – a skilled rogue, well versed in the martial arts, Kilgrim – cleric warrior who was cousin to Dwan, Arien - a knight in shiny armour and finally his sister Alloryn, a mage with remarkable skill at invocation.

From the start, they met with strangeness. A female elf with black hair (Morgaine) and her large human male bodyguard (Tarn) stayed with them in a roadside camp. The man didn’t speak the common tongue and she was possessive of her long thin sword that she wouldn’t leave out of her sights. After that the party fought against trolls and ogres working together, and the trolls didn’t regenerate like normal trolls should. Further along, they found signs of what might be the cause of Antonio’s silence – imperial deserters had been in the lands, near the edge of the valley.

Once in the valley, the party was attacked by wolves that were strangely altered - bigger and fiercer than normal with strange almost human like hands. Then they reached a village of the valley to find what was left of a battle – between the imperial deserters and what appeared to be magically creations half man, half beast. Some were half wolf, other bears, dogs, cats and even snake. A small number of townsfolk were found hiding in the granary. They told the party about how the regular patrols from Antonio’s castle had stopped awhile ago. Then these deserters came and took over their town, but one soldier – an older man, wouldn’t let the younger soldiers misuse or torture the village people. Then, from the road to the castle came these beast-men with large wagons. They attacked the village, killed the deserters and then started loading all the villagers into the wagons – taking them off towards the castle. Strange days indeed, for examining the bodies of the dead beast-men, the party found that some didn’t die from wounds. They just seemed to collapse and die where they were standing.

The party continued onwards. They rounded a corner to see a pregnant woman being chased by a group of these beast men. They saved the lady who told them that she was Lady Dawn, the wife of Sir Antonio. She explained that a wizard named Orlando and a fighter named Javert had gained the confidence of Antonio and served at his court. Orlando had created a potion that infected men with the essence of beasts and had slipped it into the beer kegs on the night that the men were celebration Antonio’s and Dawn anniversary. Since Lady Dawn was with child, she did not drink, but the others began to change immediately – including Sir Antonio. Using evil magic, Orlando enslaved the minds of the changed men and took over the castle. Those that did not drink or were unaffected were taken to the dungeons. Unfortunately the formula of Orlando didn’t work, and many of the men began to die. The wizard made up more batches and feed them to the captives, only to have more failures – so he sent the beastmen out to gather up the townsfolk to try more formulas.

Lady Dawn escaped when one of the beastmen died while bringing her food. She fled the cell and used a secret passage that Antonio had built as an emergency escape route in case of siege. She was going to go for help but ran immediately into a group of the beastmen. The party can use the same passage to get into the castle, since no one else would know of it.

The party entered the passage, found a safe place to hide Lady Dawn and got into the castle. They freed the captive town folk and were attempting to make their way upstairs when they were spotted. A mighty battle ensued. Javert almost slew Arien with an explosive arrow. A mysterous woman, obviously a leader from some outside organization fought with Dapple. Shona was possessed by some evil demonic force inside the leader and turned against the party. Dapple discovered a pseudo-dragon, tortured and hidden in Orlando’s lab. She freed it (Sunset) and with the pd’s help, managed to free Shona from the clutches of the demon.

In the end the party was victorious, if only barely. The antidote for the beastmen was found and given out. The valley was saved and the party returned to Freegate as heroes. They were rewarded and many celebrations given in their honour.

Then fall came and Shona left the city. Unable to get pass the betrayal she performed while possessed, she choose to leave quietly in the night. The rest of the group wintered in Freegate until the spring thaw opened the roads again.

Alloryn, plagued by dreams and nightmares about a man with a demonic arm seeking her, decided that she would be best to head home – study more about magic before going out to adventure again. She bid her brother a fond farewell, promising him that she would take the well traveled road and keep with the well guarded caravan with which she had signed up.

Meanwhile, Dwan has received disturbing reports from his scouts. Imperial soldiers have been seen near an old abandoned guardhouse, a few days from the city. Even worst, some were Greens. Deserters? Or a military operation? No time to waste!

The adventurers that had served him well would be call upon again. As for those who were gone, there were other sellswords and adventurers in the city of Freegate. A call would be put out.

They can be funny, serious, stupid, or just normal. It doesn't matter. Since this IS the creativity forum after all, lets see some creative answers.

I will begin with the first Answer, then the next person will post the question to my answer and then make their own answer for the next person.
