So, I'm just assume that this adventure is on hiatus.

Good luck in school Duboris.

Message me when we're ready to rock again.

Best of luck to everyone else in their endeavors. Hopefully our paths cross again.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Hey don't start on Roman, Duboris. I'm still waiting for you to RE on my PBP. ;D


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

"Oswald? Can't we have...someone like Bagrin...or Orca?" thought the wizard. Putting on his best face, Bannon tried to be more amiable.

"Yes...Oswald is indeed your...trusted, but why the sudden display of kindness from one who hides behind a mask?" Remarked the Abjurer as Mephisto walked about the group.

While waiting for an answer, Bannon stroked the feathers of his companion, Cornelius while mustering a short statement in dwarven aimed at Bromen.

"Ahk no'tak err bauhn?"

Dwarven:
"Can we even trust this person?"

- - - -

YES, A POST!!!

Ahahahaha, I always wondered if you guys ever found that and started reading it. The post is coming today, so no worries. I'm promising this one. If I don't post before the end of today the game is over and you don't have to ever reply again.

So there's that.

That being said, post soon.

On another note, what do you think of the single player version, Bromen?

No post...so I guess...thats it...

Well...its been fun. =_=


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Is Dirge dead?

Even after spending much of his acquired free time learning as much as he could about Lichdom, Bannon's efforts were in vain as his fears only increased. Though Marco had proved to be the best arcanist a fellow wizard could ask for, the Abjurer knew that the Lich needed to be put down...if at all it was a possibility.

”Argh, its frustrating knowing that a small bastion of humanity resides within the shadow of such great evil, how even now...I'm powerless to help...” It was the cooing of Cornelius that brought the Wizard back to reality who fluttered and found a place upon Bannon's shoulder. ”Dear friend, what will I be without you?” he said while gently stroking the familiar's snow white feathers.

Faced with the demoralizing realization that a Lich resides within Argosal, Bannon couldn't ignore the plight of those citizens who lived in proximity of such...destructive evil. While not impassioned like a crusader such as Tera Flinders or Orca, Bannon could atleast work towards ousting the undead tyrant...if there was a way. Either case, Mephisto's job offer of routing someone in league with a lich was a step.

Finding his place among the others, the Wizard surprised everyone by speaking aloud.

”Mephisto! What is it that must be done in order to route this so called ally of the Lich?”

As if like a pheonix rising from the ashes, Bannon's purpose resurfaced. His point was further driven home as Cornelius took flight within the chamber, soaring with its fluffy white wings.

Sorry gents. I had fallen off the face of this earth. If yall are still up for it, this Argosal job might be something cool and very dangerous for us. Who's game?


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Yea man. That spiral energy yo.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Perform checks everywhere! Actually...that would be funny as how we can we get much more stuff done w/ just 3.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

So...Roman, Bromen and Bannon. Dear lord, this'll be the best story ever.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

After Mephisto's little display, Bannon left the meeting and made his way straight to Marco's shop in haste. Few words were exchanged between the two spell casters, as they both knew what must be done. Borrowing a stool and part of Marco's work bench, The Wizard went quick to work.

Bannon's Crafting Time, Part 2!:

Bannon the Abjurer wishes to copy the following spell into his spellbook

To transcribe a spell
Level I's: DC 16 ( spell level + 15 )
“Identify” Spellcraft Check: 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (3) + 10 = 13 Not again!
- - - - - - -

Bannon also wishes to craft the following scrolls for future use.
( Pending GM's approval )

Spell Level x Caster Level x 25GP = Price of Scroll

Level 1 Spells

Vanish CL 3 ( 2 ) = [ 1 x 3 x 25GP ] x2 = 150GP ( 75 Aether ) 2 Hours

Disguise Self CL 3 ( 1 ) = [ 1 x 3 x 25GP ] = 75GP ( 38 Aether ) 2 Hours

Level 2 Spells

Bulls Strength CL 1 ( 1 ) = [ 2 x 1 x 150GP] = 300GP ( 150 Aether ) 2 Hours

Arcane Lock CL 1 ( 1 ) = [ 2 x 1 x 150GP ] = 300GP ( 150 Aether ) 2Hours

Total Time Spent: 8 Hours
Total Aether Spent: 413 Aether

”Yes...no...hm...” were all that muttered as the Wizard flipped through his spell book, turning by pages covered in Bannon's doodles and notations. ”There's gotta be a way to...survive within Argosal”

Every so often, Cornelius either fluttered to various sections of the mercantile quarter, joining Arcus and his newly proud forge or take a palce near the psudodragon that kept Marco company.

This intense study occurred for several days until the Wizard grew tired and needed additional stimuli whether through debates with Marco or even wandering around the Nexus and finding his companions.
But even in his recess, the mere mentioning of the Lich who guided Argosal troubled the Wizard. ”Such...destructive...but cunning magic”

In his waking moments, he tried to recall what he remembered about Liches and their machinations.

Knowledge Arcana Check: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (18) + 9 = 27
Heck, even after his embarrassing encounter with Orca, Bannon tried to implore the paladin for her advice.

Diplomacy UNTRAINED: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (3) + 5 = 8
Knowledge, Religion on Liches: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (13) + 8 = 21

While he mulled over what Orca chose to share, Bannon's last best hope was Marco.

Taking a seat near his companion while amazed at his new stack of created scrolls, Bannon asked the experienced Wizard for anything he knew on Argosal and its Lich problem.

Diplomacy UNTRAINED: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (18) + 5 = 23

Sweet! First RE!


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

I'll be posting later.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Objectives available to us ( feel free to correct me )

1. Hazrit ( some sort quest for Hana? )

2. Argosal ( Finding the spy who works for the Lich )

"

She smirks. "You would be right, yes, but this doesn't necessarily concern Argosal. No, this is merely getting rid of one of his spies, and cutting off his supply of corpses." she said, placing a hand on her hip and jutting the weapon on her side out."

"So, we won't be dealing with the Lich...directly. " Though Mephisto's comment did little to ease the Wizard's anxiety, Bannon seemed more aggreeable with the task at hand. "Anybody in league with a lich is a fool and equally dangerous. There's no telling what the spy or spies had bargained with in return for their ghastly deed...and as such, we shouldn't plunge into this matter head first. Have we a contact or a method to spy upon the Frozen Pass?"

After saying his piece, Bannon took a position near Bromen who shared similiar sentiments. Casually placing a smooth hand on the warrior's shoulder, the wizard spoke in dwarven to his comrade.

"Nok! Netook! Argruf aelow maesh, bar-gar epokne!"

Dwarven:
"Lich! The Master Evil! What a challenge lies before us!


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Alas, its been quite enjoyable with you AdamWarnock. I'll certainly miss Tera and her paladin-ness.

Game on!


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

The word slipped off her tongue rather sleekly. Continuing, she circled the group slowly with a relaxed pace. "He shouldn't have this many dead... The lich, that is. Someone has to be giving him bodies for the number that he has, and I suspect the local clergy is involved." she said, turning on her heel to face the lot of you. "I've got my ideas of who it is, but, that comes at a bit of a price..." she says, with a slow grin.

 

"A...lich". Bannon's resolve melted as he went inward. "No...no...n, this can't be possible..." The Wizard went from aloof and awkward to rigid and intense. His eyes widened, and looked upon Mephisto as if a fire awoken within Bancroft Gainsborough. "A Lich...is...a bastion of incredible magic...twisted by evil and the lust for immortality. The path that few wizards travel...as they exchange their mortal life and its experiences to mastering magic. Such destructive magic...unkempt is dangerous enough..." Said Bannon as the World seemed to weigh on his shoulders. "You might have not known me, miss, but as an Abjurer its my job, no, its my PASSION to stop the abuse of magic and its harm to others. Explain to me what this Lich has to do with missing people,...please."

It was uncommon for Bannon show any emotions outside of paranoia and fear. But this was a different matter. For Abjurers, Liches and their like were considered the most dangerous of foes. While the Wizard was surely no fool to throw himself into combat against the evil veteran magic user, it was Bannon's civic duty as a practicioner of magic to find a way to stop said Evil. Nibrelter could wait.

And there you have it folks, a new emotion for Bannon. Hopefully this'll end up better than Gremlin Rings and Whelps, xD

"Have the lot of you managed to figure out where you're going to be off to, soon? I'm curious..." she asks, waiting with anticipation.

Bannon, ever the social butterfly spoke first knowing full well that he wouldn't be given a chance later to express himself. "Hm...destinations...thats a great question. While nothing pressing at the moment has my attention...I do recall Hana mentioning that she had business left within Hazrit. Personally speaking, it may be best to take care of that because of a certain dragon whelp may take heed to our presence." Whether he did it intentionally or by accident, the Wizard shared information that may be of use to Mephisto. Casting a quick glance to Bromen, he wasn't quite sure if he had goofed up.

Allowing himself to take over the situation, Bannon reflected the question right back at Mephisto. "But by all means, do you happen to have a need...or direction for us?"

Not really sure how this may end up, but can't hurt asking....while inside the Nexus xD


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Yea, no need to get fancy.

Class levels and the usual 3 sentence crunch are all that's needed.

She walks up to him, and with a flash, puts 3 fingers together into a bit of a peck and dashes his forehead, inevitably causing him to disperse before it can land. She laughs a bit, but continues; "Information on Aether is nice, and I've no doubt that Marco will tell you droves if you asked him. As for the other part, well, here's my suggestion. You can both choose now. Information for Aether, or Information for Information?" she says with a bit of a giggle.

"I have no control over what you tell me, and therefore, I'll merely give you info I deem worthy. How does that sound?"

Bannon took in the mysterious lady's speech and couldn't help to let his mind wander.

"What do I truly want...."

Cornelius bounced on Bannon's shoulder, gently hooting while readjusting itself. The Wizard took notice and smiled for even in negotiations, it was nice having someone on your side that didn't further add to the cacophony of the Nexus.

Barring what Bannon considered horrible music, the Wizard spoke up after Bromen.

"What my venerable associate here implies...is that we could use an example of what you mean by...information, Mephisto. Surely you can understand. Like, imagine asking..lets say a dwarf for information..he's most likely going to present his opinions on crafting and fighting techniques."

Bannon's Diplomacy, Untrained: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (20) + 5 = 25YES!!!!

Giving a small nod, Bannon knew that he had made a valued point.

Sorry Bromen, pretty racist of me. You're open to adding more jokes.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Brings a tear to my eye...

To think I graduated art school going on 2 years. How yesterday feels like I'm going to studio for the first time.

I wish the best for anyone in college and that they're studies goes well.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

I'd go back to Hazrit..might be best anyways currently uncursed and having traveled to said area.

I'll be the first one to say this - please no Zeltos...yet. Bannon's scared of prison...don't drop the spellbook xD.

But seriously, this has been an enjoyable adventure so far.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

So what Quests are available to us at this moment?

"I've no magical assistance, but I know a wizard when I see one. You practically wreak of that Marco mentality... I wish for you... to bring me information. Simple, no? You provide me with what I believe to be juicy intelligence, and then I implore my own devices. There's Aether in it for you, and is that not what you boys need? Hmm?" she asks, opening her arms up for a half embrace.

The Wizard was taken aback at the masked woman's comment. "Reek of Marco's mentality..." It was much like his earlier days in the academy when non-magic users would pick out the wizard apprentices and mock them during their practice. Bannon knew that it was ignorance and jealousy that empowered such brash behavior but now, he was faced with a different situation.

Acquiring more Aether was always a plus, but being offered a deal from a woman who won't show her face...wasn't a good sign. But...she didn't openly threaten the Wizard or his Dwarven friend and she did have a modicum of understanding to peg Bannon for his arcane tuteledge.

Clearing his throat and giving Mephito a wry smile, the Wizard spoke up.

"Mephisto...Charmed, I'm Bancroft Gainsborough and yes, there is no shred of doubt that I'm a Wizard."

Bannon Sense Motive, Untrained: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (11) + 3 = 14
Bannon Diplomacy, Untrained: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (6) + 5 = 11

Casting a cursory glance, Bannon was trying to discern if there was anything about Mephisto that smelled like a bad idea.

I guess no problem here, Officer

"I suppose there's no harm in regards to information. Though, maybe you could...make it more a while. After all, I am a wizard???"

What have I done....


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Bannon enjoys meeting the NPC's. Mephisto seems to send the wrong vibes up the Wizard's spine...could be good/bad thing.

What would really help is if there was a database w/ pics of each of the NPC's, so as to keep tabs on who is who, etc. (I'm aware that it takes alotta work and tracking, but my 2copper.)

Ideally, whenever we DO choose to head out, give Bannon a heads up as to prep spells.

( I would still like to craft items, but since we're in NPC dialogue that can wait )

Other than that, I think we all deserve a clap.

Of the PBP's I've been involved with, this seems like a solid group. Keep up the good work! :)


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Bannon's making all the friends here

Taking a peak at the masked woman that beckoned himself and Bromen, Bannon couldn't help to feel a bit uneasy.

"You...beckoned us?"

The woman's uninterested stance only meant that she was either playing a game w/ the dwarf and human, or she truly was bored.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Bannon was befuddled. As if Tera, a stalwart and headstrong war maiden was enough, there stood Orca. With his brow glistening, he waved at her for attention.

Clearing his throat, "Excuse me miss...Orca I presume?". Once establishing contact he follows through clearly and calmly, trying not to come off as a paranoid and needy old man. "Cursed" he said pointing to a ring on his left hand.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Have we reached a consensus? ( If not...I can put scroll scribing for later...but you'll have less advantages later on...)

Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Hi everyone, I'm a wizard and this following announcement is for our less magically inclined folk. ( xD )

I've spent a good deal of time adding several more spells to my book ( Alarm, Crafter's Fortune and Arcane Lock ). While I'd LOVE to make scrolls as a contingency plan...as well as more scrolls as their back ups...Wizarding may take a good deal of a day.

So the real nitty gritty is - How soon do yall want to embark on adventure? Because, I'll be able to study and prep for our next forray.

Something tells me we're about to talk into a horrible mess...


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Bannon's Private Time:

Bannon wishes to copy the following spells to his spellbook.

Level I's: DC 16 ( spell level + 15 )

[dice= "Alarm" Spellcraft check]1d20+12[/dice]

[dice= "Crafter's Fortune" Spellcraft check]1d20+10[/dice]

[dice= "Identify" Spellcraft check]1d20+10[/dice] Miss!

Level II's DC 17 ( spell level + 15 )
[dice="Arcane Lock" Spellcraft check]1d20+12[/dice]

Total cost to write into book.
Level I : 2 spells ~ 20 GP = 10 Aether
Level 2 : 1 spell ~ 40 GP = 20 Aether

total aether spent = 30 Aether

Total Time spent transcribing ~ 4 hours.

Not sure the current time in the Nexus or what folks want to do stuff. But here's a list of what I've done so far in game time.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Oh the options I have....what to do...

Bannon looked around wistfully, taking on a curious attitude.

"Surely, a fine craft indeed!" remarked the wizard with an off beating attitude.

Having gathered the attention of his fellows, Bannon carefully caressed his winter owl, Cornelius. "If I'm not intruding here...but if craftings the mood, how much time would we stay here? I'd like to prepare some countermeasures towards our future's perils. Scrolls and the such. Are you all savy?" said Bannon with a downward glance, seeming needy and adorable.

As it happens, it'll take some time for me to adopt new spells from the tome we recovered @ Wyrmling's lair, and then to make a scroll or two. I haven't a clue how long this'll take me. o_O


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Having been returned to the Nexus, Bannon's mind raced with the new possibilities of putting what he learned to action.

With a smile, as he felt secure within the different reality, he went forth like a homebound child.

"Come now Cornelius, now is the time to put our minds to use!"

Bannon's agenda
1. Claim portion of profits ( including locked spellbook + wand if no one wants. ) and reclaim reward from Arcus.
2. Ask local cleric to remove cursed ring.
3. Find who's good with a lockpick to open new spell book, identify and transcribe.
4. Peruse Library and search for any books about Nibrelter.
5. Visit Marco and have wizard chat. Potentially share spellbooks.
6. Transcribe Scroll of (Endure Elements, Communal) into spellbook.
7. Craft a scroll - Bull's Strength (-150GP), Vanish (-25GP) Protection From Evil (-25GP) [can't think of anymore I'd like...]


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Im in for TPing back the Nexus, but if someone's able to snap some sort of a backbone in the spellcaster, I migh entertain the notion of proceeding.

Im hoping at somepoint to unlock Bannons confidence later in the adventure...heck maybe its good for what it is..

Aside from that, i aggree with Duboris about the PbP. The interaction is splendid and quite enjoyable!


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Paranoid, huh? Try being slain by a demon you didn't see coming:P


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

"Another forray deeper into Hazrit?" thought the wizard with a sigh. Taking a look at his hands, the curse which he recieved as a result of his hubris hadn't manifest yet. While true terrors still haunted him, such as unkept magic and demons ( shudders ), a curiousity rose within Bannon.

Waiting a moment for Roman to finish speaking, Bannon interjected midly.

"Mistake me not for the great and powerful magus you expect me to be, but would you need me to...participate on Hana's errand? I've a condition that...may impede our progress.."

Realizing that his confidence was that of a mollusk, Bannon casted a downward look.

"Now you've done it..."


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

A sigh of relief escapes the wizard.

"True..." was all that Bannon managed to say before swallowing the rest of his left foot.

leaning towards the direction of the cave, he readied himself to press on.

This is grand. This RP I do enjoy :]


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

"Ooo more excitement!!" thought the wizard silently to himself.

"No harm eh, but someone else should be our leader. Tera, you've done a good job, but had it not been for our more capable friends, we could've ended up as a ashes."

Realizing that his open mind spoke out, he afford a small nod while looking shamefully away.

"Mind before tongue..."


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Don't tell me what to do :P

Bannon, taking on the cue from Hana looked over the pile once more.

Appraise: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (5) + 8 = 13


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Ushering Cornelius from the dragon's horde, Bannon calmed his familiar by stroking its long white feathers.

"Its okay, friend. We survived...this time."

Truthfully speaking, Bannon was relieved at how the combined efforts of his allies culminated in a safe victory - but at what cost? Somewhere within the rocky environment of Hazrit fluttered an angry and spiteful child waiting to grow into a full fledged dragon. But worrying about such things detracted from life - a fear that would only be necessary for later.

Clearing his throat, Bannon called out to the group.

"Mistake me not for a mediator, but that was some show of teamwork earlier. Now...I know we're pressed with a victorious horde here..but hum...I feel we shouldn't dally here."


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Like before, Bannons drooling for that spellbook. And if no one wants the wand, he'd wouldn't mind it.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Bannon squees for the Spellbook! Though, he'd have to find a capable locksmith to release the book.

Also, I wouldn't mind taking the wand...I'm an Abjurer after all.

Good job everyone one.


Male Human Wizard 3, +5 Initiative, +6 Perception, AC 11 / Touch AC 11 / Flat Footed AC10, Saves F+2/ R +w / W +6 HP:19/19

Though Roman had gone closer to the wyrmling for a better shot, Bannon didn't feel at all comfortable following suite, but he had a special blessing: a freshly chugged potion of resist fire.

Calling to mind the proper words, Bannon mustered compelling bravery and took a spot near Roman and created a protective ward.

Move action to Roman.
Std action: Cast Protective Ward, 10 ft. radius, +1 Deflection AC; 4 Rounds [ 5 / 7 Uses Left]

Current Effects.
Resist 5 Energy (Fire)

When its Bannon's turn

"HOLY ZOTS!!!" The wizard thought to himself. The situation beore him was growing worse by the second.

"It won't take long before the wyrmling really gets nasty...". Shuffling within his robes, Bannon found a small tear shaped bottle. Its contents were of a deep magenta with flecks of pearlescent white. Casually bringing the vial to his mouth, he removed the stopper and sloshed the liquid in one toss.

"Yuck..."

Despite tasting of burnt cinnamon with an aftertaste of acid, he felt a warmth surging through his body.

Standard Action - Drink Potion of Resist Fire, 10pts.
Move Action - move next to Paladin and Fighter.

"Allow me time to prepare my ward. I may offer protection should you cover me."

As Bannon moved over to Tera, Cornelius fluttered to safety.

[ooc]Also, should list this here. Fire Shield 10pts and 5 Resist Fire from earlier.

"Tera, please don't take this wrong way - but what has exactly gotten into you? I can understand the job of your office dictates that you act in a certain manner, but think about what's happening. How many times in your life can you say without a doubt - its marvelous?! Look, we've a band of companions and look here, a dragon in its earliest form has created a dialogue with you."

Allowing his words to seep into her mind like fresh rain water on a parched garden, Bannon followed up with a wink of an eye and a gentle tone.

"You may find it hard to believe but those planes you've mentioned each serve their purpose; a so called balance within the very fabric of the cosmos. Open your mind..."

And at that moment, Cornelius' wings fluttered - sending off several feathers which flew towards Tera, gentle landing on her armor.

"My familiar agrees. Maybe what needs changing is that armored suit you're walking around in. Be free child"

The Wizard wasn't quite sure he was trying to accomplish with the paladin. It seemed like a fool's errand to reason with a devout knight, but the woman had surprised Bannon once before - so trying again couldn't hurt.

I have no idea where this came from - it just felt natural. Now Bannon was seem like the Skooma user of the group coming out with odd sayings. Would be cool if he did it in a Christopher Walkin's tone.xD

Bannon was disappointed at the lack of trade going on with the group until Roman of all people stepped forward.

"Firearms...meh...I could see the dragon being invested in something more than gaudy spheres and powder. I could risk showing off the fact that I have magic...but then again...might be best to keep that card ready.."

Cornelius kept a tight grip on Bannon, ever so panning the dragon's horde.

The wizard feeling needed took a step over to the paladin. Resting a hand on Tera's shoulder, he gave a hopeful smile.

"Dwarves and smithery is as innate as a babe floating in water. All you've got to do is believe, Tera."

Bannon cheered on the dwarf, but kept his composure.

Okay, here's some inception style shenanigans.

> Goad Wyrmling into taking cursed rings for Book and Arcus' Tools

> Teleport back to Aether.

Simple no?

Cursed items held little value to a merchant, but to a dragon it may mean a different thing. While Bannon wasn't opposed to passing off his first round of loot, maybe trading the other cursed rings with the wyrmling may by him an opportunity to get Arcus' gear.

"Oy Hana, those rings we found earlier - the Lady and the SnowFlake One - perhaps our 'friend' might like em?"

I'm excited! Being a fellow artist, I hope to see some fanart of our game.

Shooting a darting glance to the paladin, Bannon's brow began to sweat.

"Fascinating...it is indeed true that even at a young age dragons are quite possessive about their loot. Duly noted.

"What did it say? Does the dragon have a name?" asked the wizard.
