THe conferance continues

THE KING’S COURT

As those seated around the large table were for the moment quiet as if to catch a breath it was once again Lothor who restarted the conversation.

"The forge is in the dwarven kingdom? The danger is what might attack us on our way there? So, we can either travel into the heart of enemy territory while the Shadow King undoubtedly hunts us. Or we can travel towards a friendly kingdom while the Shadow King hunts us. In either case we will be hunted. But one location seems gravely dangerous compared to the other. What am I missing? Will he expect us to head towards Erebor? Why? It seems until just recently everyone assumed the sword could only be destroyed in Cirath Ungol. It feels like I am missing something here."

The large fighter’s answer once more came from the Arch-Mage Allanan.........

“Me, you, the past, this new future, what your missing perhaps Lothor is the fact, I am here in a time I should not be. Your missing the fact that things that were changed in the past, have effected this future. The past the future you left and we returned to is no more.” A pause “As to the rest, will going to Erebor be less dangerous then Cirath Ungol? I do not know. The auguries have all said all most the same level of danger lurks on both paths. Will you be hunted if you go to Erebor, I do not know. If not for you bringing me and my knowledge to the future their would be no way to destroy it at Kazad-Dum so the Shadow King may not realize it yet. At this time he still thinks the only place to destroy it is at his forge, but he has too many spies everywhere for that to last forever.”

Lothor again... "Excuse me archmage. I can't help but wonder about those scrolls. You have traveled through time to deal with this sword. You have given much to the battle against this weapon. And yet now you would hand off three scrolls and go another way. Why?"

“If I go with you to Cirath Ungol all secrecy and stealth will be gone. I am Valar, he is Valar, he will sense me coming. For the moment I am hidden from him in this fortress, behind its magical walls, but again that secret will only last so long. The best help I can give is to strengthen the defenses here for his army's return. Even now they are rebuild upon the ashes of Atarinn."

As Allanan stopped a new voice was heard as Ulthok began to ask questions.

“My lords, we are given two options but we have little information on the journey to the origin forge. To head south and the cross the waters are there maps and guide information of what we could expect to encounter. Is there information on the evil lands? Are there secret approaches your spies have used that would aid us in that choice? Are there known dangers to avoid? Are there any magical or mighty items we could have to aid in our defense and journey?

For a few moments the Kings spoke quietly among themselves then turned back to the party.

“All we know is this...The Northern coast of Cirath Ungol is impassable due to the Shadow Kings five forts of dread linking the Mountains of Desolation with the Mountains of Damnation with a huge wall of stone and magic. How you would get to Mount Doom we do not know nor could we give you any help other then maybe a few magical items or a spells. You could travel to the Southwest of the island by boat upon the Angrenost Sea pass through the Isles of the the Big Brother and Gryphon Island past the The Mountains of Desolation and find a way to reach the island’s southern shore. However you could also travel to the Southeast upon the Crispian Sea avoiding any mass of land, the nearest being Arcane Island. Once past The Mountains Of Damnation you could again seek a place to land upon the island. No one has journeyed close to the coasts of that island in hundreds of years and shipping that passes through the Strait of Aladron stay as close to the shores of Annoria and Paletine as possible”

Ulthok felt his thoughts needed conveyed to the party so that their questions to the Kings would bear fruit for travels to the core of the enemy.

“My lords, if you will allow me a moment with my friends. “

The Halfling gathered the party around him and in whispered tones explained his thoughts and concerns. When they had done he said to them,

“My vote would be to continue as we had begun, go to when the sword made.”

Cor looked at the party around him, his thoughts easily spoken

“This choice is too important ta make on the spur of the moment.  Perhaps we should all take the night to think and pray on the choice and meet tomorrow as a party to determine our course and then return here to present it."

Next to speak within and to the group was the newest of the two elves, Arandur.

“If I may address the group, I do agree with Master Cor. The time for planning and strategising are needed before we come to a conclusion. However, I will say this I opt we take the safer route for this quest will be fraught with enough dangers and unpleasant surprises as it is. I would rather us take the longer but safer road than rush recklessly into the midst of our foes in an attempt to end this quest sooner. But I will leave the decision up to you.'

The party huddled in a tight group, under the eye of Allanan and the remaining kings, continued to talk……….

(DM OOC: Ok new post up I hope I answered all questions to everyone's satisfaction. If not feel free to ask me in the Q/A. Ok I’m going to go to a two week posting schedule so next post will be Sunday the 18th unless everyone posts before then. Ok post away ….)

After a few moments with the group locked in conversation, Cor called for a halt in their discussion.  He turned to the gathered Kings and spoke "Tis a right head scrathcher ye set before us.  Shall we continue into the teeth of the enemy ta reach the one place we know fer sure will melt the sword or turn to a possibly safer destination that has a risk of failing ta melt the sword.  I dunna ken which is right yet and there seems ta be a bit of disagreement amoung our own selves.  If ye dunna mind we ahall tak eour leave for the night and speak on this and then on the morrow return and give our choice."

 

OOC:  If everyone would make a post stating their preference in character we can then tally the votes and come to a decision.

Questions for God

As the group retired from the hall of kings, Siréne felt herself plagued by doubt. They were left with two impossible choices, and the fate of the world might rest on their decision. This was not a time to wander blindly and guess, they needed to know with an assurity that only divinity could offer. 

Stealing away to her chambers, the witch began to prepare for a mighty rite. In the nocturnal silence she opened her mind, letting the knowledge of the pathways to the Goddess seep in. Hours passed as her plea began to form language. Need became form. 

Standing as night became dawn, Siréne raised her hands above her head and called out to the Great Goddess, to She who was all Gods and not a God at all. To the Mother and the Destroyer. Siréne called out with body and voice, and the divine void washed over her. Soon she would know.

 

((OOC: Prepares and casts Commune - she is seeking to know which path the party should take - this might be a good option for all our priests to do...))

Rayden saw her brother turn to her then simply asked a question. She listened to the rest of the party speak with the others gathered then it was time to vote, she hadn't any idea of where to go.. barely paying attention seemed to have been a poor judgement on her part. 

"I care not where we go, just that the task gets done. Where you all go, Brutus and I will follow." Was all the elven woman had to offer before returning to her inner turmoil.

It seemed the party was unsure that one choice was better than another.  So, the next morning Cor returned to the hall and made the choice.  "We travel to the dwarven forge.  May Odin watch over is all and some the fires so we may destroy the sword one and forever".
