Round 3, Init 14

Finding herself surrounded, Wren again throws up a puff of feathers as she flutters away while clucking angrily the entire time.

"Oh you shouldn't scratch birds!!" Wren shrills angrily.

Withdraw.

Round 2, Init 14

With a cloud of feathers and loud squawks, Wren withdraws from the man waving the pointy stick. She's never enjoyed being stabbed, ever.

"Oh you shouldn't shoot birds!!" Wren clucks angrily. "Birds, even firebugs, are our friends!" She hops forward to inspect Kawrock's carnage, then adds her own.

Cast fireball at the 3 non-climbers.

Wren takes little notice of the grumping by others, continuing to preen.

"I can't believe that they called me 'human', how rude!" Wren says, still irked. "I'm no human. I have these pointed ears and beautiful skin for a reason."

Elf FeatherMage

Wren seems annoyed at the 'wolves words, mostly annoyance at being called 'human'. She stands up on her rock and replies, screeching like a wo-elf scorned.

"That wasn't prey we slaughtered, it was BAIT!! YOU'RE THE PREY YOU DAFT CURS!" Wren shrills. "NOW COME THE BEATING YOU DESERVE!! WHEN YOU ALL ARE DONE SNIFFING YOUR ASSES COME GET IT."

Wren looks shocked at her own angry outburst (even though the offense of being called human surely allows for some of her anger), and settles back down, preening her armor.

"Oh, sorry about that. They just made me angry..." Wren says much more softly.

Wren does not act just yet.

Wren resists any shoves by others to shift her out of position, clucking like a chicken and waving her arms violently whenever seeks to move her from her rock.

She seems quite irritated that others might seek to dislodge her from her nest, but soon calms down and awaits the assault by the pack.

"Firebug, you be sure to push that firewall outward, not inward, don't you burn me like an eggbake," Wren says at the kooky bird's firewall idea. "Be sure to let some of them inside the wall. Before you put it up, we'll never catch any and they can wait us out if you put it up too quickly."

Wren climbs up on a rock to make her defensive nest. She draws her wand of magic missile. Wren is set.

"You all should surround me so that they don't surround you. I can protect you better when I know where you will be," Wren coos.

"Their teeth carry swords too?" Wren smiles, having just learned something...

"Now I understand what the phrase 'armed to the teeth' comes from." Wren cackles with mirth.

Wren fops a hand at the compliment.

"Oh, I don't know that I did anything except explain clearly how to defeat the beast from the safety of the forest and it was Arval who discovered how deep the beast's teeth reach. You should ask him what we should do about the wolves," Wren demurs with a cracked, yellow-toothed smile.

Arval Beyondane wrote:
"Did you see what that thing did to me? It nearly ripped me to pieces!"

Wren nods as she did see it happen.

"Oh dearie, yes, I watched. It was very gruesome but you were very brave for wanting to see it up close. I don't have the constitution for seeing my own innards dragged out by sharp claw and tooth, but you are made of heartier stuff than I. You have the admiration of this old bird here," Wren offers a yellow toothed smile, exhaling her own bad breath.

After she (and others) have harvested what they wanted from the dragon she is ready to continue on. She will chatter and chitter as the others work, but do little to help, of course.

We would have mourned Arval for posts, at least 4. Maybe even 6. ;)

Wren scuttles out from the trees (avoiding the entangling vines) to check...on the dragon. She has never seen one up close and intents to spend a few moments learning what she can from it (including taking a few of the beast's feathers, aka scales) for future research and study.

"Oh Dear. This one wasn't even a big one. This one is a relative baby...more akin to a few of my lifetimes than a true terror. Such a foul thing...did you see how it cast spells and breathed the most noxious of fumes? Reminds me of..."...Lena. She needs to take better care of her teeth. Wren's voice trails off.

She pokes and prods the beast, wishing she knew where it laired.

"Oh poor Arval!" Wren clucks with concern. "He's still out there with the dragon? That isn't very likely to end well."

Wren sends another of her wand blasts at the dragon.

Round 2, Init 20

Wren dusts herself off, lifting her head up to see the others bathed in acid.

"Oh dearie, I tried to warn them, I did. If they were smart, they would always do what we do, huh Eldon? We're the smartest and prettiest of the bunch!" Wren coos as she draws her wand of Magic Missile. "If they had followed us into the woods, that dragon might not eat them all up in one bite."

Wren is not sure her wand will work against the dragon, but she tries anyway.

"Oh dearie, that's a greenie, alright," Wren chirps, wondering what she knows of green dragons.

Round 1, Init 20

Wren lifts up her feathered 'armor', trying to avoid the grapping vines...

1d20 + 5 ⇒ (13) + 5 = 18 Reflex

...and quickly ducks into the forest as she knows full well what happens to helpless prey when a swooping predator is around.

Wren looks up at the squawking firebug.

"A dragon? A real one or a drake? What size? What color!? Color is important you know!" Wren chitters back as she goes to hide behind a tree and await answers.

Wren pauses from her riding to eat a bit more, pecking at a handful of trail mix and dry bread.

"We are traveling a long distance, we are," Wren states the obvious in case anyone had already forgotten. "Tell me again, Cilas, why we are going back? What is this trip to you?"

Wren, who had presumably been babbling off and on for the better part of 6 hours, gives the man a chance to speak.

Wren hardly yawns from her of research and rest, still keeping herself clean and fluffed with her magics. She attends the breaking of the night's fast with unusual vigor, as if her night of study had increased her appetite significantly.

"More fruit! And nuts if you have them!" Wren orders of the staff, whether they work in the kitchens or not.

Cilas wrote:
"...it will be a hard ride and we do not have a moment to lose."

Wren nods, almost ready to go as soon as breakfast is eaten.

"I shall require a horse, good Ser Cilas. It will be long ride and we shall discuss much as we travel. Have I spoken to you about the time I assaulted a troll-held castle with the most disagreeable of companions! I remember like it was last month but it was likely so long ago...it all started with my good friend...blahblahblah...talkative halfling with a penchant for buggery...blahblahblah...another halfling with twice the penchant, I think, not like she would admit...blahblahblah...and why must dwarves have beards?

Wren makes some notes in her notebook, continuing her research and then re-reading Estovion's notes.

Notes:
Halo of Dreams - tome
Stairs of the Moon - place (made up of Dusk Moth?)
Dusk Moth - artifact?
SauSage Effigy - missing artifact
Song of Spheres - dream state? Desna?

Wren will try to research any connection between the SeaSage/Sausage Effigy and the Dusk Moth as both seem to be artifacts that the Whispering Way has interest in.

Was there an artifact of interest in Book 1 of this AP? I'm not remembering well as it was long ago.

Also, if you're not actively interested in helping Wren in the library, you might want to follow up on the ample leads/hooks in this thread (link).

Wren shakes her head at the evidence of Estovion's mistakes and past deeds, fully confessed in his journal.

"It's really sad that my good friend Estovion didn't mention this to me earlier. He could have trusted me after all we've been through, what with the spider and Arval's angry assault of nobles and all," Wren notes, agreeing with Eldon.

Wren pulls out her quill (of the many many feathers she has on her person) and writes down some notes.

Wren then restores the desk to its original formation.

Only slightly back, but this game hasn't moved much since I left. Sadly, it appears that no one has taken the initiative to follow up on the other leads that were given? How is that possible that no one has stepped up?

The walls of the tower, the highest point at the lodge, and lined with various books with a well-used desk at the side of the room. A lovely view of the forest is afforded from here.

Wren bustles into the open library, only somewhat annoyed that Lena had opened the door before Wren had a chance to.

"I'm shocked that Estovion had the door locked! He must have forgotten that I wanted in...such an oversight that I will forgive as we are such good friends," Wren prattles as she enters and looks around. "I'm so glad we were able to avoid awakening him so I could enjoy the library."

Wren goes to the desk and sees what Estovion was reading and doing.

She reads for a bit, then turns to the rest of the party...as if wondering why they were still there.

"Oh, I'll be quite alright now, thankyouverymuch," Wren coos contentedly. "The rest of you can go see about other things, I'll do the research here."

Wren makes shooing motions with her hand, trying to send the others on their way so she can do the research she needs to do in private.

I shall return on the 18th or so. About to board the plane to Miami, then Cuba.

When you GMPC Wren, think that you're playing an intelligent but socially confused chicken.

I would have also accepted the answer: "A 2 ton gargantuan trapdoor spider goes wherever the piddlespot it wants." :)

Rat's blood? I'm glad it wasn't one of my birdy friends.

Wren coos and examines the other beast, taking special time with the ettercap. She has no particular experience with creatures like it (aberration) and spends a bit of time trying to figure out why it was bashing itself in to a wall.

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (17) + 4 = 21 Int Check

"Eldon, be a dear and ask around as to where and how they captured this strange thing?" Wren says, pointing at the ettercap. "I simply must know more about it."

I figure the rest of youse can follow up on the other leads.

Later in the library, she will study up on aberrations, trying to expand her knowledge of the creatures.

Wren looks to see what other animals might be held in the pens, seeking anything that might be as dangerous as that spider.

"Can anyone identify what kind of blood was used?" Wren asks, hoping that the blood would point to a clear trail. How are the animals penned? How are the animals locked in?

1d20 + 13 ⇒ (2) + 13 = 15 Know (Nature) - Why would a trapdoor spider follow a trail of blood rather than the vibrations upon the ground?

Wren will catalogue each of the other animals that are penned within. Let me know if any knowledge checks are needed.

Yo Peeps--

Heads up that I'll be AFK from April 8th to 19th. Going to Cuba on a Culture, Economics, and Technology junket with a board that I used to be on. More info here.

Feel free to play or GMPC my <insert yahoo's name here> for all the fun and laughs you can muster. Online access in Cuba is very rare and usually dial-up speeds so I won't be able to post much, but hope to read along when I can.

I hope to be back to posting on the 20th or so, given that I have a long trip home and will need some recovery time.

Wren continues to fluff her feathers and try to undo the waves of nausea that affect her. It involves a lot of angry squawking until she finally regains control. When she does, she goes to the man who was initially threatened by the spider.

"Did you see where it came from? Where was it when you first spied it?" Wren wants to make sure there aren't more coming from a nest someplace.

Wren sits wherever there is space. She is happy to chatter and chitter to anyone, mostly because she's not aware (or really caring) if they are listening or not. She will tell her stories (you all know the ones) about her life growing up.

She will hunt and peck at her food (leaning towards fruits, vegetables, and nuts).

She listens intently for Eldon's story and prepares one of her own should Eldon's not entertaining enough.

Round 4, Init 7

Wren had been about to grease the evil dwarf's longspear when he sees that it can no longer be wielded effectively. Instead he fires arrows into the fray, hoping for a lucky shot.

1d20 + 8 - 2 + 1 - 4 ⇒ (19) + 8 - 2 + 1 - 4 = 22 to hit; (-rapid,+PBS,-cover)

1d8 + 1 + 1 ⇒ (8) + 1 + 1 = 10 damage.

"C'mon. Let's shave this one and all the other beards in here. They are naught but the symbol of evil!"

Wren casts Prestidigitation a few times, fluffing and cleaning her feathers before heading down for dinner...and even hits the dirty bird, Kawrock, for good measure.

"I've never seen you bathe, Kawrock. Would you like us to set up a large shallow stone dish in the garden? Is that how your kind bathes? I use magic, of course..." Wren makes friendly and interested conversation with Kawrock on their way down for dinner.

When she arrives, she chitchats about what she learned of the Sausage Seasage Effigy to others.

Oooh...that was a good Harrowing. Awesome, GM Spiderbeard.

Kawrock of the Phoenix Clan wrote:
"What is a Vilkacis? I don't believe I have ever heard of such a creature."

Wren cocks her head at Kawrock's question.

1d20 + 13 ⇒ (7) + 13 = 20 Know (Religion)

"Well, Kawrock...I first learned about the vilkacis during my tenure in the Temple of the Affluent Amazonians...". Insert description of vilkacis here. DRs? Special attacks?

Sparked by the recent discovery and Harrowing, Wren put her mind to researching more of the Seasage Effigy (and Sausage Effigy in case others are similarly confused):

1d20 + 14 ⇒ (12) + 14 = 26 Know (arcana)
1d20 + 12 ⇒ (18) + 12 = 30 Know (history)
1d20 + 13 ⇒ (16) + 13 = 29 Know (religion)

"Kawrock, if you're going down to the kitchens, would you have them send up a plate of sausages? No reason..."

Wren continues to read and study, gathering more knowledge that she nests away in various bird houses of her mind. She chitters to herself unconsciously, happily in her own world. She likes the Lodge.

Wren sits forward to scratch her bony behind, then leans back again into the chair.

She lets out a contented nesting sound and continues her research into the mating practices of the adult blue flumpf.

Wren if you want to make more knowledge checks feel free, I just need to know what you want to research. As for the rest of you, God's gentle hint is that you're in a place full of fun NPCs who may know something. Seek them out or wander around and see what you find!

Wren is doing generic research and reading. She doesn't necessarily pursue only the Whispering Way and werewolves, but pursues whatever seems of interest.

Wren, for many good and bad reasons, isn't the most social bird in the flock. She tries hard and *thinks* she makes friends, but actually getting others to like her is quite difficult (unless one is in an adventuring party, of course).

So when not actively eating with others or shuffling around to discuss what she's learned or read or to gossip, Wren will be spending a lot of time in quiet research.

I know we want to be social and sleuth a bit, but that's not Wren's gig. She will help as needed (especially research), but if you *want* Wren to help with the nobility and such, she will, just know that she's Wren and I can't stop her. *Things* (link) will happen. You have fair warning. :)

Wren is happy (and more comfortable) doing research than talking to nobles. She is quite excited about her recent discoveries into the leadership of the clans and shares it with everyone when she sees them. Do read the spoiler above because Wren would have yakked about it to you.

"Eldon, were you able to get the book? Or should I go ask my good friend Estovion for it? He's very fond of me, you see, and he'll lend it to me, I'm sure," Wren gives her best smile to Eldon, her yellow teeth showing.

With the excitement over, Wren is happy to return to her studies.

"Eldon, were you able to get the book or should I ask my good friend Estovion again?" Wren asks the storyteller.

Wren moves to the sound of the shrieking, stunned by what she sees.

"Oh! Crawl on the ground and wail until he turns away in disgust! That's the only way to handle bullies!" Wren says, helping giving the advice that has worked for her in the past.

Wren looks confused but leaves to continue her research, allowing Eldon to negotiate with the book.

I don't think Wren is around for the Arval thing, but if she was, she'd be laughing as I am.

As Kawrock rattles off the litany of things he's discovered in his research, she realizes to her surprise that the bird can both read and organize his thoughts intelligently. She is impressed.

"Kawrock, in your studies, did you come across any hintings to the dispositions of the various clans. We can assume the Jezeldans are demon-aligned, but what about the others? Would any of them not be liable to attack us while we finish our research?"

LIttle to no useful details are found, however as she flips through a description of the Stairs of the Moon, a bookmark falls out.

Bookmark wrote:
See 'Halo of Dreams' on page 322. Filed under Religion upstairs.
Upstairs from the reference library is a closed door. Estovion's personal chambers and library.

"Oh Eldon, look at this," Wren hands Eldon the noted bookmark. "See, dearie, there is writing upon it. Apparently and by implication, there is more to this library than what we see here! We should go see if my good friend, Estovion, will allow us use of the private library."

Wren smiles at Eldon, a leery owly smile showing her yellow teeth.

"It's nice to have someone around who knows how to keep up a conversation..."

Wren and Eldon (and whomever else wants to help) go to find Estovion.

Wren researches some things that had been nagging on her mind. Guessing on what knowledge to use, so switch out modifiers as appropriate: Arc14/Eng9/Geo9/Hist12/Loc12/Nat13/Pln10/Rel 13.

1d20 + 12 ⇒ (11) + 12 = 23 Know (History) - Recent Whispering Way activity

1d20 + 12 ⇒ (20) + 12 = 32 Know (Local) - Werewolf clans (Vollenag)
1d20 + 12 ⇒ (14) + 12 = 26 Know (Local) - Werewolf clans (Mordinracht)

Wren reads and researches quite happily. She is much less talkative when she has a book in hand, eagerly using the words in the pages to silence the voice that gives rise to her ramblings.
