Lord Halwer and Trinfulard:

"Ah, regrettable. Well, you'll understand that I needed to check. Tell me about your definition of a room Lord Halwer. If I were to find a magical decanter there, would it count?"


it is in this room. Here is your hint. Think back over everything that has happened in here today. Cheers.

He heads down underground for the mushrooms and molds he needs for the cure. I will just have to get those on the way back. I had better get started on these others though they are further away.. His route takes him back towards the city's center but underground. Soon he realizes he is near where he fled the other orcs all those years ago. its the best use of his time to head for the other stuff as he doesn't know how long it will take to find.


Varin heads back underground. He ducks into the sewers, knowing that he will have to seek out some way out of the sewers into the underdark, where the mushrooms he needs grow. The problem is finding a way in. Every so often the ways are blocked off. Finding his usual path so blocked he determines that the Puddles is his best chance to find a way back to his old home.

make me 3 survival checks, I know untrained and 3 perceptions and let me know how you proceed what do you carry in hand etc

He carries his crossbow loaded in one hand and has his sword across his back his other hand ready to hex or spell. He uses no light but instead relies on scent and darkvision. I sometimes having a nose like mine is horrific. He shakes his head at the smells drifting to him.

Salus flicks his hand back and forth while speaking in abyssal.

shield on myself and Ehad

"Flying, that could be tricky..."


Varin is able to easily navigate his way in the darkness, his dim light giving him a sense of the normalcy he has come to enjoy living above ground. At last he comes to a place that has a damaged wall, that he thinks he can slip through and make his way deeper underground. He pauses, not bothering to look around him and ducks into the hole.

He traverses it for a little ways, knowing that he will have to go deep in order to find what he is looking for. The coridor is dank and dark, outside his light, with walls that, were he paying attention he would realize were dug out, and not natural.

As he pauses to gather his bearings,

hand crossbow1d20 + 4 ⇒ (12) + 4 = 16 for 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (3) + 1 = 4 damage

A small dart flies out of the darkness behind him burying itself in Varin's neck, Varin feels something coursing through his veins from the prick of the bolt.

Fort save1d20 + 5 ⇒ (15) + 5 = 20

Varin focuses his rage and pain at all his recent misfortune into his mask and it devours both it and the poison.

Varin hears another click as another bolt 1d20 + 4 ⇒ (18) + 4 = 22 slams into his back dealing 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (4) + 1 = 5damage

Varin's Fort1d20 + 5 ⇒ (14) + 5 = 19

Once again Varin is able to shrug off the poison. He roars and prepares his counter attack.

Alright I will be summoning what is known as an Incubus. It resists damage not done by holy or Cold Iron and is resistant to Fire, Acid, Cold and Magic and immune to Electricity and Poison.

It flies and has the ability to cast limited spells. I am summoning it into the circle so it will be weekend. Are we ready?

ummm, So i looked at the stats on this guy, should be interesting because I cant deal any damage to him. I can trip him occasionally, but I have a 0% chance of doing any damage or did you drop his DR a little bit? I think this would be fun to fight, but it might turn into a 1v1 with a monk trying to move him around pretty quickly.


weakening circle in the middle so yes lower everything on him.on the other hand boneyard only has 1 or 2 posts to go...perhaps we should be interupted here and pause. I will not be able to do the fight till late tonight...


oops was on phone making that post, thought it said you were using light. dealing with another darkvision creature, so its ok either way, it was those two perception 1's that made you miss him

Behind him in the dark a dark-skinned elf stands in a battle-ready pose, her hair silver and eyes white and pupilless. It prepares to reload as the crossbow bolt flies wide above his head.

Varin looks for cover but finds none in the open corridor, the elf follows reloading and firing again.

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (5) + 4 = 9 for 1d4 + 1 ⇒ (1) + 1 = 2

The bolt slams into Varin but skitters off his masses of scar tissue, completely ineffective

Grunts and waves his hand growling gutteral words in orcish.

Afterwards he drops the bow and pulls his sword as advances toward his foe. Stupid Drow I would leave you be if you had left me. I don't have time for your interference..... Why do you shorten your long seasons this way? Intimidate 1d20 ⇒ 13

Fort1d20 + 2 ⇒ (2) + 2 = 4 The drow sprays blood from its mouth as it expires.

Varin looks through the Drow's belongings, finding a Chain shirt, a MW Hand crossbow (you only know it is masterwork with an appraise of 10) 7 bolts, a vial of a black paste (Heal or alchemy 13 to determine it is drow poison) and a rapier, and 17 gp

Varin continues down into the darkness. 2 more survivals and perceptions

You fool. Now I must shoulder the cost of your lost years. For my family....
Shudders in pain. And takes off his mask staring deep into its eyes. Feeling his patrons disappointment. I know. I know. You don't like the taking of life except in the service of life and the land. But I have to save my family. And if I had left him alive, he would have brought others and more would have died. Sighs and puts his mask back on. Wipes his sword off on the drows clothes and searches him and the area retrieves his crossbow. He slips the drows possessions into his pack. He sets off into the darklands once again.

Lord Halwer and Trinfulard:

Boneyard makes his way back over to the liquor cabinet. He first turns his attention to the vials again, particularly the one that radiated illusion magic. Casts detect magic. [ooc]Spellcraft 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9

Next, he turns his attention back to the decanters. He examines each in more detail, opening them and turning them over in his hands. He looks for any false surrounds or shielding.
Perception Decanter 1 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (2) + 12 = 14
Perception Decanter 2 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (17) + 12 = 29

Perception Decanter 4 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (5) + 12 = 17
Perception Decanter 5 1d20 + 12 ⇒ (16) + 12 = 28



Calondrel speaks in a stern reproaching voice.
This is why you fail at the rapier. You grasp the big picture but not the fine details. The best attack often is the simplest.

The decanters are all almost identical. As Boneyard places them on the table and lines them up Halwer stops him. Taking the moment to refill his wine.

The design of all are just slightly different as if made by the same hand over the course of a career. They weigh the same, with the exception of the one filled with wine, which is obviously heavier.


dont forget your appraise if you try to sell that handcrossbow later

Varin continues down into the darkness slipping by several tripwires and the odd pressure plate.

He comes to a fork in the tunnel. The path to the right will take him deeper towards the depth he needs, but he hears muffled voices. They speak in undercommon but he can not make out what they say.
The other direction does not descend but seems to be uninhabited.

Male Orc Witch 9 (scarred witchdoctor/hedge witch) archmage 2 AC 21 ref +11 fort + 17 will +12 hp 139/139 mp 7/7 init +2


He slips in a bit closer sticking to the walls and staying behind things when he can. He only gets close enough to make out the voices and what they are saying.
Why are their so many drow near my people old home? He thinks as he listens.


this guy has massive huevos!

Stealth to move silently, not so much to hide1d20 ⇒ 12

Varin manages to creep down the corridor more or less silently. As he gets closer he heres at least 3 different voices, all of them berating, what sounds to be slaves. Things to the effect of Hurry up slime. Move faster or we will remove your eyes...

The reply comes, but it is in a language that Varin does not speak.

Then there is the sound of a lash and a cry of pain.

Male Orc Witch 9 (scarred witchdoctor/hedge witch) archmage 2 AC 21 ref +11 fort + 17 will +12 hp 139/139 mp 7/7 init +2


I know right.
At the sounds of pain he growls softly. He readies his crossbow and pulls his sword in his other hand. I have seen too many others in chains if I can I must free them.
Creeps a little closer seeking cover as best he can. Stealth 1d20 ⇒ 1 He then kicks over a pile of rocks making quite a but of noise. He gives up and just steps out in view shooting his crossbow at the first target that's in the clear.

Whips around the corner and shoots the first available foe. 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (4) + 3 = 7 Damit. Drops his crossbow and grips his sword with both hands.
Was hoping for a description and you could have taken the shot wouldn't have bothered me in this case.


oh don't you worry. Going to be a glorious death I think :). But will have to wait till break at work


Varin comes around the corner letting fly with his crossbow. The bolt shatters against the wall near the unsurpised camp. Varin sees 4 drow, already reaching for their hand crossbows. In the middle of the camp are three kobolds, who had been being beaten. To the far side is a single tent with it's flap closed.

that 1 stealth meant you lost surpise round but did have the initiative

The drow dropping the ship says

the kobolds stand and close to within 10 feet of Varin.

the four drow move out wide to gain clear shots at Varin and all loose their bolts. One cries out mistress! We are being attacked!

You will be asleep in 9 rds. Your turn, top of the round

Varin feels the poison begin to take hold of him, he knows poison and knows that he will be asleep within a minute.

10 feet infront of him are 3 kobolds charing with claws, spread to the sides of them are 4 grow preparing to reload their crossbows, and there seems to be movement coming from the tent.


Salus and Ehad:

Just before Renthler summons the demon, Casus pops into the room.

Renthler cut it out. Halwer is ready to see everyone. Apparently tests are over.

Renthler smiles sheepisly and leads everyone back to the sitting room.

The last thing Varin remembers before darkness swallows him is the Drow Priestess smiling down at him cruelly, and reaching for his mask. Varin feels a deep pang of regret as he thinks of the fate that awaits Albrecht.

Will be a pause for us here, since you took the route I did not anticipate I need to figure out how to play life as a slave for the next many posts.

Lord Halwer and Trinfulard:

Boneyard stops and looks slowly over the decanters. Perhaps we are not dealing with the traditional definition of magical...
Appraise 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (14) + 7 = 21
Knowledge (Local) about Lord Halwer, his preferred crafts and crafts of those he cares for. 1d20 + 14 ⇒ (4) + 14 = 18

Boneyard remembers that Halwer recently, withint the past few months was known to be looking for someone to cast a permanency and particularly potent altered Magic Aura Spell.


I screwed up with not having you make saves earlier, even though all those rolls failed, I am fairly certain you would have succeeded earlier.

Seeing Boneyard return again to the decanter with the wine he smiles. OK enough. He picks it up and upends it on the table, and holds it upside down for a good 6 seconds, then places down a perfectly full decanter. One of my favorite toys. Constant Create Water and Enhance Water. Shall we?

He rises

Now that everyone has returned to the sitting room Halwer enters.
Well done everyone. You have all passed the test, here you go.
He tosses a pouch of gold in front of everyone, containing 150 gp. This is your monthly retainer. Then he follows this with another pouch, each with 200 gold in it.
And due to Mr. Pyke’s performance here is a little bonus.

Something has been happening in the city. There was a well planned hit on the nobility recently where a massive amount of jewlery was taken. My good friends Trinfulard, Bobreth and Kracow, who will be joining us shortly,tracked down something stolen from my wife, and retrieved it.

However, what they uncovered was much deeper. Drow are under the city, and up to no good. Before I go to the city powers I want to know more. Kracow has more information for you about what has happened recently, and I will leave it to him to brief you all. Basically I want you all to get to the bottom of this.

At that moment Fizzy returns to the room. All done, Halwer
Halwer nods and says. Kracow will inform you shortly about a magic room he discovered. I want you all to set it up as your base of operations. Fizzy what do they need to know[/b]
Fizzy nods I adjusted the trap at the door, and Casus hid it better. Before you can enter you have to say “SnickerSnack, FlickerFlack. If your not a friend of Fizzwiddle you be better on the rack.”
Halwer slaps his forehead Of all the inane...what does that even mean?! You know what I don’t want to know. Hope you guys got that, because I do not want him to say it again.
The last thing for all of you to know is this. I offer to you the services of my enchanters. You may pick one item, be it armor or weapon, or ring, or amulet and my people will upgrade it for you as long as you are in my service for cost only. Ah, here is Kracow. Gentlemen, listen close.

Fizzy pipes up again. Also I figured out what is going on with this statuette, that Kracow found. It contains the soul of the cleric he saw slain. As long as you are using it to heal the good and save the world and blah de blah de blah it will work for you. Halwer here told me to figure it out and send it with you, so here it is He sets it on the table next to a small box containing other items.


4 Anti-toxins
1 Wand of Cure Light Wounds 20 charges
1 Potion of Cure Serious Wounds
Scroll with 4 charges of Resist Energy
Iometreth Statuette

The small marble statue appears to be of a young elven woman, dressed in armor, with a glaive in hand. Obviously a cleric of Shelyn. It is about 6 inches high and weighs 3 pounds.

The statue is really all that remains of the Cleric Iometreth. In a battle to stop an evil Wizard she was slain when she struck on of his experiments and it exploded, turning her into the statue seen. Her spirit lives on in the statuette, and it can be used to heal.

Ehad stifles what appears to be a laugh with an expression of muted stone, "Fizzy, if you dont mind me asking, what was the trick to getting in before you came up with that little phrase of yours?"
As he waits for a an answer, Ehad examines the box and its content. clearly confused with how to use most of its content, he closes the box and puts it back on the table.

Boneyard smiles at Halwer's question. "I got it." He leans forward to listen to Kracow, "I'll definitely be interested in hearing the tale of what connects the drow with a jewelry heist. Strange bedfellows."

Salus raises an eyebrow at the mention of drow, "Drow, my elven companions led me to believe they were a myth. I've only heard of that incident in Varisia and that was only hearsay."


Fizzy smiles. It was a very nasty trap...well it still is a very nasty fact it is as nasty as the trap that we found when we snuck into a Green Dragon's lair back in the days of you know why they are called the days of yore?...well that is a rather long story...You see once there was this Sorcerer King of great power and his name was Dollifor. Now this is important to understand because...

Casus interjects Any non human or elf that stepped over the threshold would be hit with a blast of acid, electricity fire and ice. A very powerful blast that resets itself after every charge. Now you know. Never ask Fizzy a question.


Varin slowly comes to. Everything hurts you are at 22 HP, apparently you were healed some while you slept, he reachess to rub his neck but finds that he cannot move. He opens his eyes fully and discovers that he is chained naked to a stalagmite. Unable to move his head his eyes search the area. He sees that a few more drow have arrived as well as several more Kobold slaves. Notable he sees a very large muscular drow, very unusual.

Before long the priests comes out of her tent, and approaches him, she carries his mask.

Spellcraft1d20 + 12 ⇒ (13) + 12 = 25 and Arcana1d20 + 12 ⇒ (11) + 12 = 23

How fascinating. Your connection to your God in a mask. I am your god now. Now suffer for me.

She drops the mask and pulls out a cat-o-nine tails, mutters a word and it begins to crackle with electricity. She then strikes Varin in the face, in the groin and in the throat with it.

non lethal3d4 + 9 ⇒ (2, 1, 3) + 9 = 15

Varin's last thought before going under again due to the pain is that, she never even asked him a question.

your post will be your coming to again, this time you will be at 10 HP, and will be able to see that you are being guarded by 2 drow, who are hyper observant as well as the second your eyes open the kobolds all cry out that you are awake, then being awarded with a scrap of food from the drow

Kracow enters and takes a seat, looking a bit more disheveled and worst for wear than the last time this group saw him. He has a bit of fresh sewer dirt and blood in his clothes and his dark hair a bit more greasy than usually kept. He seems mildly distracted as if he is tracking time in his mind.

Greetings and thank you for the introduction M’Lord.

It has been a strange path thus far. What started as a simple heist from some fenses has lead to the inner bowels of Absalom. And I thought this place stank on the outside!

Kracow takes a drink from the serving table and continues.

What myself and the Captain of the Guards found beneath an innocuous warehouse was a trapdoor that lead to the sewer, which in turn lead to a makeshift entry up from the caverns below Absalom’s sewers.

While we ventured into the sewer we were jumped, several times. And the traps were most annoying but easily bypassed. Be prepared for everything down there armed and deadly. Even the walls.

Before we could get too far underground we found a secret room as our small friend Fizzle has reworked for us. It t’was a wizard’s study, with library and work table to craft arcane items. But most interest of all is the scrying pool in the center of this secret room.

This magic scrying pool may prove useful again but what it does is reveal the last two days of activities of an items owner. IF the item used in the pool is personal enough to the owner, then one get a clear revelation, at a cost of course. For to see what happens over two days, one also lives for those two days within a moments time and the scryer is left weakened and exhausted.

So let us prepare to head under ground and we will start from the last vision I saw from some drow matriarch working over her flunkies.

Before we get started is there questions you need me to fill in? We should eat, share bread and drink, to get to know one other if we are to trust each other with our lives

Closes his eyes again knowing there is no use fighting......yet...
If the drow bother him he simply does as they wish hoping in time they will stop watching Ap closely.



Varin feels a gentle hand caressing him, working some of the knots out of his neck and back. It feels divine. He opens his eyes to see it is the Priestess.

I can be gentle or cause pain. Are you prepared to worship me? I do hope you say no...though by the look of you, perhaps if you are prepared that could be almost as fun. Renounce this, and watch me destroy it then perhaps we will see what happens next.

Pleasure and pain you offer me two lies that do not really exist outside of the mind. In truth there is but life and death. And death begets more life whilst life begets more death in an ever moving cycle. I will serve you because you have strength over me for now. If I will not bow before you. As for Yggdrasil I worship it not I merely follow its path....
