DM Zyren's Heart of Light

Game Master Zyrenity

An epic search for the Amethyst heptagon leads a party of fresh graduates through the northern reaches of Ustalav. Based in Karcau, the party visits places like the dark Castle Jarovich or the dangerous alleys of Carrion Hill.

No matter what happened I could see Winter returning to his mountain retreat and Sebastian chasing some pretty broad to the ends of the earth. Cat I could see as having grown bored with the lot of us and moved on to find bigger adventure.

Leaving the Sable, Bree and Kabal. With Corvax missing, you two are the only friends he has left so he's down for whatever. As long as it involves separating heads from shoulders along the line.


Female Human Rogue-Knife Master/8

Indeed. Sebastian already had a lady back at the Golden Goblin. I agree though, I am interested in seeing some sort of Riddles wrap up, even if it's just ZZ telling us a short story about how the Drow adventure ends. I mean, c'mon, we're all currently inhabiting the bodies of dead Drow. Also, I want to know if Sable keeps his new "slave".

Bree will miss the hell out of Winter :(

What? Sable can't keep the drow skin as like a weekend ensemble?

male Aasimar Clr 3/Pal4 HP:62/62, AC:21/T:12/FF:21 - Percep: +13(Dark Vis) F:+10/R:+5/W:+14 CMD: 20, Spd: 20ft, Init: +2

Winter's broader aims were to continue to build trade with the less volatile Shoanti tribes and consolidate his relationship with the Elves for continued 'military might'. The idea was to take over the old mission house in Riddleport and act as a sort of intermediary and unofficial town watch to take the harder edge off some of the excesses of the crime lords - hence why he tried developing what relationships he could with the likes of Vankaskersin and Clegg, and his acceptance of using blunt force trauma where and when required, because "Some folks you just can't reach" - he'd continue to develop the mountains presence as a retreat and 'fresh start' for people who wanted to begin again or 'had to leave town'.

Though he was a stalwart Paladin and totally committed to the ideals he espoused, he was always a realist who understood that trying to save Riddpleport is going to work about as well as spitting at the moon - not only will you not hit the mark, you'll just end up with a messy face. Better he picked and chose the battles he could win. A living Paladin can also do more good deeds than a martyred one. "The serenity to accept the things I cannot change, The courage to change the things I can, The wisdom to know the difference".

Wait, I really wanted you to find Brandon at the end of the current module!

Maybe we just assume that happened, you killed the drow overlords rescued poor Brandon, returned to Riddleport, found a letter from Harry who was ranting about "not-trustworthy NPCs" and followed him? Ummm, ok...I see room for improvements.

And, hey Bilbo!


That said, not altogether bad either.

Winter might have taken Brandon up into the Mountains to recover and recuperate, leaving Bree around to head off and see what her old pal Harry is barking about. The word of ancient curses, crazed Ogres, and shady Rangers should get her hooked.

nice Riddles wrap up!


Hello, Z.

I looked over the post since I was forced into retreat from all things non-academic and looks like everyone kinda hit a similar run for a time. You guys only have one game getting ready to be rebooted?

Yay! Perhaps you'll allow me to correspond via carrier pigeon/hired messengers with him throughout the game :D

"Oh no, Sable... and Korax. That's very kind of you to offer, but um, surely Korax is much better suited to stay by your side to aid you instead of doing such menial work as to carry messages for me!" Bree says giving Sable one of those forced smiles that she thinks makes her look friendly, but really only makes her look psychotic.

;) Hey Fey!

Uh...Bilbo, would you like to join that merry band of scallywags + Karlan?

I bet Sable's feathered friend would make a fabulous messenger birdy!


Male Human Bastard Sword Weapon Master 6 ~ Urban Barbarian/Invulnerable Rager 2

Dm Zyren - should we level up to 8 to match the Runes people?

and can we do any recrunching?

Andoran

Korax is likely to get crafty and change the message himself halfway through delivery... I mean he can almost outwit Kabal :P


I would ifin' there be a place. What would you guys most value?


Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

Sry Kabal, yeah, pls level up and recrunching is fine too.


Male Human Bastard Sword Weapon Master 6 ~ Urban Barbarian/Invulnerable Rager 2

Thanks Zyren!

Looking over options now...


Should I work up a character for review and approval, Zyren?

Maybe someone for Karlan have as moral backup, perhaps? lol


Female Changeling(Hulking) Bard/7

Karlan has morals?


Male Human Paladin 8

And ethics!


Male Human Bastard Sword Weapon Master 6 ~ Urban Barbarian/Invulnerable Rager 2

Think Im gonna swap Exotic Weapon Profiency Falcata for Bastard Sword so Kabal can go two handed sometimes (twss!)...like when he's raging.


Staying within one's edicts is difficult considering the crowd he has run with.


Female Human-ish

I'm feeling a bit under the weather right now with a sore throat and mild fever. ZZ, when were you wanting to start the game going again, I want to make sure I have Bree leveled up in time but am not sure I'll get to it tonight. I also have to print off and fill out a bunch of stuff for my Graduate School application.

It helps that KArlan's player is a complete and total bastard.

No worries Bree, we have paused long enough to wait another week or two now ;)

Well Bilbo, when you have a good concept at hand, go for it - I think most necessary party roles are filled.


Will do. Build level and cash?

We are not completely broke, we have Karlan and Harry's charming personalities, which is invaluable.


They keep telling Harry he's worth his weight in gold, he's still trying to work out where to cash that in.

So. I lost my temper. The result is a broken lcd screen on my laptop. Incidentally this is where a great deal of important things are held.

So now I have to scramble to get the money together to get a replacement screen. So, obviously things are going to slow down as the only way I can post is at the beneficence of my girlfriend.

Divine Gamemaster of the Abyss and below...

Tark?!

And Shifty does not mean broke, he means "blessed with alms" ;)


Male Human Bastard Sword Weapon Master 6 ~ Urban Barbarian/Invulnerable Rager 2

A little unsure of taking Lunge...I'll finalize Feat choice by start time though.

Background:

Background

“Even the largest mountain may be crumbled from below.” So says the grand tome of the Hammer Hands. Not content with proving their martial valor with axes and hammers the members of Torag’s Anvils choose to fight barehanded and with bodies wrought as of iron. An oddity among their kind to be sure as choosing such a path is most certainly not within the traditions of dwarven society, they none the less are highly respected on the field of battle for their ability to handle massive creatures many times their size. Seeing their calling as nothing more than the ultimate extension of dwarven mathematics the members of this society are often quite intelligent applying mathematical principles to topple giants and dragons as other dwarfs would a quarry wall. Training their minds to resist the waves of magic so often employed by evil things of the deep Anvils are often seen wading through magician’s treacheries to restrain the fiend for others to dispatch. While most dwarves do not envy their training, they are honored by their presence on any battlefield.

Thornson Ironfingers is one such Anvil. Ranking well up the chain of authority within his guild, Ironfingers has ventured out of the mountains on word giants were massing in the area. Tasked with verifying this rumor Thornson gathered his meager belongings and prepared his mind and body for a welcomed challenge. Knowing some long time friends to be operating in the area made him all the more eager to be on the road at once. Bidding his clan farewell with promises of war trophies should the rumors be true, Thornson took up a steady gait and a toothy grin. While little is known of their training, a massive cavern which serves as their guildhall entrance is filled almost completely with the teeth of one massive creature or another and adorned with the name of the dwarf who is said to have knocked free from the previous owner’s mouth with a powerful blow of one his steely limbs. Soon his hands would again find their most desired use after far too long at rest.

Appearance and Personality

Stout by even dwarven standards, Ironfingers looks like he was chiseled from a slab of thick granite being nearly a perfect rectangle in build. An extremely dense musculature leaves little doubt to the power within and abilities often attributed to members of his guild. Other than his black knuckles, another testament to the body hardening he has undertaken, Ironfingers resembles most other dwarves in visage and demeanor. Though it is immediately obvious to anyone remotely acquainted with dwarves he is not of the typical breed due to the lack of armor and requisite axe or hammer. To some this cause for concern and has at times resulted in a rather cold shoulder from the uninitiated. Warm as the forge and rather outgoing for a dwarf, Thornson often changes these attitudes fairly quickly.


Campfire is awful dim these days, huh?
