I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

.....duly noted.....


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

back in an hour


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Any questions for Omma?......

no hurry; I'm in the midst of getting Satori San en route.....shouldn't be too long now.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

I'll be back in an hour;

"Omma... is there one you know of that might know more of these... miem... of the legend? The wizard and the warrior woman?"


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"Perhaps;....in the forest,....there lives an old hermit about 15 miles southwest of here.
He was a noble personage of some sort or another; I don't recall all of the details exactly, and you must forgive me, for I am the wife of a village elder, and as such am ignorant of the ways of court.

This hermit; he was old when I was young and fetching even. AAH! Miem, I bet you're even older than me HA!
I've met him a few times; he'd come here to acquire rice or this and that.

Apparently, he turned his back on court life, to contemplate nature.
Some samurai, or even courtiers are known to do that. It's very in line with the Path of Enlightenment.

He writes poetry, and drinks tea and paints all night, and all the sorts of things old hermit former courtiers are prone to doing.

He is called Jissu now; I don't know what his....royal pedigree was. He has many scrolls of a historical type though.

Hmmm; let me think who else. In the town east of here, there's a temple, and priests who are students of all things, but....they might not be prone to being too friendly to your group of wild and wooly foreigners. No offense meant, good men one and all."

"So Elgan, what's the deal with this leak?" Beldan asks of the druid. "How do we plug it so these nice folk don't keep getting attacked by watermelons and giant fish?"


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

With a faint smile, "I am little more than a child in my people's eyes, honored Omma. In years, though... yes, I may have been born before you. But your wisdom is greater in your ways here. I find no signs of ignorance." She bows, still seated.

Looking at the others, she agrees with Beldan, "Yes, what will be necessary to plug this 'leak'? I would go visit with the hermit, but not until my duty to the Lady is complete."


M Half-Orc Ranger

Hearing the old woman speak of the hermit living SW of the village, Dok remembers his view (when they were South of the village) from his spell showing a complex of buildings to the West. Curious now, he finally speaks. "Does the old hermit man live alone in many buildings?"


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

Wow. I got a little side-swiped by RL & work. Sorry.

Elgan shrugs.
"Ah dunnos fer shoo-eh. Ah'm more uv a 'observe an' maintain deh status quo' kinda guy. Mostly. Yeh knows, ceptin' fer when deh natuh tries teh eat deh folk wit' oversized flyin' mud-fish un sech." Elgan grins.

The little druid tries to copy the elegant seated bow of the Elvish warrior-woman, and hits his head on the table.

"Hm. mebbe ah shuuld la of deh saki. Jes' a litle." He murmurs.


The Celestial Dragon

heathy:
"Ah." Satari sighs, and looks regretfully at the last of the tea. "That must be the signal for me to attend to these matters. It has been good to talk again, and I will come find you when all this is resolved."

Satari bows, leaves money for the tea, and sets his face toward the pink explosion.

Cherry blossom? I hope it is cherry blossom. That makes the most delicious tea.

"I'm not sure; I don't know about these magical leaks from the First World..."

"No. I think I know the place though. He lives further from that place, and more to the southwest.

He has a small house.

The place you speak of is the House of Nine Swords. It was a fortress long ago, and then became a monastery of battle priests.
They rebelled against the shogun, and there was an epic battle; they were written out of history but the place is still haunted by the fallen from that battle."

Satari:

Spoiler:
You run for a good hour and a half. As you get closer, it is a massive cloud of cherry blossoms, centered around a small village by a lake that opens up in the river's path. As you round the lake, the cloud ends.

It is.....massive. Unnatural. Cherry blossoms everywhere.

In the fall.

In the wrong season.

As you stand, taking a break from your journey, you can see a group of warriors, maybe around about ten or so.

They're armed and armored, and they're to the west; a good 200 yards away, coming in your direction.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

The rest of the group;

You hear shouts outside.

"WARRIORS!!! A GROUP OF WARRIORS, ON THE ROAD!!!"


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

back in a little bit; need to help with the homework....


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

huzzzzzzah!


Male Human Rogue 14

Beldan grabs his weapons and hustles outside.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Beldan; to the north there's a road running east and west; I've expanded the "map of the village" to include it.

To the west, there's a clutch of 10 warriors.

Two up front in weird looking armor of strange interlocking.....maybe some kind of metal; it's fairly odd.

a row of four behind them in the same sort of getup,

and a row of four behind them, in leather armor.

The back four have odd looking staffs.

And to the east, you see a lone old man in travelling robes; he looks like he's been running.....


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

village map, updated

the green is trees. the blue is a lake;

I've indicated position for Beldan and which of the yellow buildings is Omma's house.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

And, Satori San,......
enough with the annoying spoilers; you see first a small village to the south, bordering a small lake...

there's some peasantfolk milling about; one of them is yelling "warriors! warriors are coming!"

then, a man in strangely cut leather garments, probably has him a sword, comes out of one of the buildings.


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

Emrael is close behind Beldan. Does she recognize any significance of the warriors armor or weapons from her previous time on the island? i.e. Does she recognize them as representing someone we might want to avoid irritating?


M Half-Orc Ranger

Dok glances outside, then looks at the inside of the hut (This a one-roomer?) for a way to get out unseen by the approaching warriors.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

they look like samurai; the guys in back, however, with the "staves" are gunmen. They are armed with muskets.
They look like they're in somebody's army. The four in the front row behind the two leaders have banners; the banners are the writing symbol of a "tree."

Emrael, with her sharp elven eyes, can see that the two up front are women; they're all human.
And,....she can smell that somebody amongst them.....ate quite a bit of wasabi.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

There's a room up front, and a small hall with two rooms on the side, and a back room for a kitchen.

All of the rooms have sliding paper doorways. He can sneak out; wherever he wants to position himself, he can do it on the sly if he likes.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

I think I made the houses kinda tiny.....heh heh.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

And,....Satari San sees a svelte elfin maiden join the first in leather outside of the village hut.....or a 'Miem' as they are known in faroff Kara Tur.


M Half-Orc Ranger

Dok and Colu will sneak out "the back" so as not to be seen by the coming troops...

Might be a bit of a stretch, but I have to ask anyway... Heathy, does the village happen to count as "urban", or perhaps "forest" for the purposes of using my favored terrain bonuses? I know, I'm shameless... And I'm not ashamed of it, either! :)


Male Human Rogue 14

"Who are those guys, are they friendly?" Beldan directs the question at one of the peasants, and/or Emrael.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

we'll go with "forest." The green stuff on the map is wooded areas.

I place Dok; you can pick something better if it suits you.


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

If you want to go out the back (i.e. east side is the actual back of the building) or north; that's cool too....


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

One of the peasants says, "that's the daimyo's banner they wear....."


Male Human Rogue 14

"Is he the one that had that girl killed?" asks Beldan grimly.


M Half-Orc Ranger

Dok slinks around the Southeast corner of Omma's house, then moves stealthily North into the trees with Colu.

Stealth: 1d20 + 18 ⇒ (4) + 18 = 22


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

Position noted....

"The Peachling Girl? She wasn't killed, but her parents were......I can't remember if it was him or the daimyo before him who had to commit seppuku."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

"But he is a cruel man.......all the same."


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

nitey nite!!!


Male Human Rogue 14

"Oh, the parents, that's right ... Well his soldiers must be up to no good - we'll see them off, you lot stay inside."


Male Human Rogue 14

"Emrael, you speak the local lingo right? Come with me, I might need someone to translate."

Beldan will head up the road towards the troops.


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

Emrael raises an eyebrow at the foreign Beldan's confidence, but she walks alongside him to greet the troops.


Male Wild Elf Druid 16 (Shifter version, PHBII)

"Hea-yah we go agin." Elgan murmurs with a small smile as he rises and walks out the front door with the others. He studies the newcomers with unabashed curiosity.

"Ah likes deh symbols dey weah. But jes' cuz dey like trees duzzin' make'em frenlee." He points out sagely.

The druid notes the strange arms and armor the newcomers wear.

"Hm. Dey looks dangerous. You go first." He says blandly, patting Beldan on the shoulder.


The Celestial Dragon

Satari approaches the village and the cherry blossom and the armed warriors of the daimyo, from the east. An old man with white hair and a white beard, in the distance he seems, to Emrael and Beldan and the others, to be wearing faded blue pyjamas. He approaches very quickly, though he doesn't seem to be running.

Double move to L8, unless the warriors do something to make him stop before that. Like e.g. Shooting him or saying 'stop' or something. Also, hello everyone!

Sweet FSM, 100+ new posts!?

Altai has stayed mostly quiet since the battle with the flying fish and its animate entrails resolved. As the newcomers approach, he follows Elgan and steps out of the hut. "Huh. What are those staves they are carrying? And who's the ancient jogger?"


Advanced flesh golem shield guardian

Altai parked Claw outside the hut - no point in having him rip apart the paper house trying to get in.

Heathy:

Spoiler:
Altai's greatest fear, unsurprisingly, is losing his magical powers. His clammiest nightmares has him back in Rauxes, working as a bean-counter for the mad Overking, endlessly tallying up colossal mounds of worthless tat.


Female Elven Kensai 17; 122/122 hp; Effects: Haste, Inspire Courage +4, Mass Fly, Mirror Image (7)

Ah, Satori San! It is good to finally meet you!


I AM THE LORD OF ALL HELLFIRE!!!!!

HUZZAH!

I'll be gathering my crap together for a few, then I'll get cranking on this bad hog........hard day.
