As always we will donate proceeds to our favorite local charity: Tubman
(Tubman's donation wish list)

Come join us this fall as we gather to game and give back to our community. We were very successful in both our dollar amount raised and the volume of food and goods donated. So as always, our goal is to do better than the year before. This is a daunting task, but one I am confident we can and will conquer.

This year’s group of guests is headlined by none other the Organized Play Coordinator, Tonya Woldridge! Who knows what Tonya will bring with her, but if her last visit to Minnesota gives a hint, it will be exciting.

Also returning is SFS lead developer Thurston Hillman! There will be an opportunity to play Thursty’s Paizo Con lottery game, I believe. If not, then maybe this will “convince” him to offer it.

Also confirmed for this year is Clinton Boomer! The hits just keep.on.coming.

I want to take a moment and thank everyone who has helped make our little con be such a success. I think how in the hell are we gonna do better than last con and Every Year y’all show me the spirit of giving is alive and well here. I’ve seen what our efforts do for Tubman and the people they help; knowing we make a difference in someone’s life makes all the work, all the late nights, all the cajoling (“Yer gonna come visit us this year, right?”), all the planning, and everything else involved with putting on a convention so worth it. I am humbled by everyone’s generosity. Truly, thank you so very much!

Watch this thread for updates about registering and table signups, as well as anyone else we can strongarm, I mean convince, into joining us.

Lastly, as always...
Lets do this people!

Following up on an email sent 4/18/18 from which I did not receive a reply.

Please remove the softcover playtest rule book.

I will also point out, again, there is no way for me to adjust this order. There is nothing to click on where it advises me to.

Thank you.

We're back! Bigger and better than ever! (well two years running but you get the idea...)

When: September 15-17
Where: The Fantasy Flight Games Event Center, Roseville, MN

As always we will donate proceeds to our favorite local charity: Tubman

We continue Skål Con's annual tradition: a food drive! Please bring as much non-perishable food items as you can for donation. Desired items would be things like canned fruits, vegetables, soup, and dry goods (pasta, rice, etc.). As always with food items, we can only accept unopened items in their original packaging. For each item you bring there will be an in-game benefit for your characters. Our lodge donated a lot of food last year and I expect us to exceed that amount.

Come join us for our local Starfinder Society kick off event! SFS Developer Thurston Hillman will be on hand to not only answer all yer questions, but even run a few tables of Starfinder. There may be a surprise for attendees that I am not at liberty to reveal.

Clinton Boomer returns for a third year. Watch this thread as we are working on getting a new scenario by Boomer cleared for PFS credit.

Green Blood! Black Rock!

Also confirmed is Jaye Sonia, owner of Storm Bunny Studios, creator of Rhune: Dawn of Twilight, and the creator of Bloodlines & Black Magic (with lots of help from his friends). Come play test Bloodlines &.Black Magic all weekend!

The silent auction returns as well. Last year we had a goblin boon put up. This year? Who knows, but don't you think you should be here to find out?

Card game? Yeah, we got that covered. All weekend long.

Green Blood! Black Rock!

Our goal is to top last year's monetary donation of $7000. We can only do this with your help. If you are unable to attend Skål Con, you can still make a tax deductible donation. Everything helps and we depend on our volunteers and the generosity of Pathfinder Society players to make Skål Con a success.

Let's do this, people!

The Exchange

"So, I guess they are sending SWAT to some Meet and Eat on some fancy ass estate. I guess they needed to send the Society's finest to schmooze a few hoity toity."

The Exchange

read everything in a thick Chicago accent

A smoke stained wood room with a large bar tended by one man stand along the far wall. Various posters, flags, firearms, and other memorabilia hang on the walls. Several kegs of various ales line the wall behind the bar. An oven with a flat iron top gives off an aroma of spicy sausage. There is a tank of water filled with oysters at one end of the bar.

Curiously, an intricate mosaic of Sarenrae adorns the wall over the kegs.

A medium height man with a thick mustache wipes down the bar top. His apron is immaculate.

Hey! welcome to Dicky Serpico's Boar 'n Oysters bar. This here is the official bar for Pathfinder Society's SWAT members. If you've tried the rest, send in the best.

Anyway, I serve beer, peanuts, popped corn with several seasonings available, and oysters: either fresh or what I like to call "Serpico Style" which involves adding some spicy sausage and a little breadcrumbs with grated hard cheese on top before firing them up. They come out hot and delicious. You oughta try 'em.

As I said, this here is a cop bar. Any member of Absalom's finest is welcome to hang their helmet, kick back, relax, and have a few before going home to the family. So if you got a problem with cops, then I got a problem with you.

Hey! it's the Thunders! Lips and Cock! What can I do for you boys?

WILL THUNDERLIPS! NEED TO EXPLORE MORE CRYSTAL WOMBS WITH SPIKY BUSH IN THIS SCENARIO? LAST TIME THUNDERLIPS! WENT TO ANOTHER PLANE OF EXISTENCE WHICH IS HARD FOR THUNDERLIPS! IN THUNDERLIPS!'S ADMITTEDLY SMALL UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD TO GRASP, UNLIKE TONDERNOTTER WHICH IS EASY TO GRASP, THERE WERE ODD THINGS THAT THUNDERLIPS! PREFER NOT TO SEE AGAIN.

MAYBE THUNDERLIPS! NEEDS TO BRING ALONG SAME TWO RABBITS FROM CRYSTAL WOMB TO JOURNEY WITH THUNDERLIPS! AND THUNDERCOCK! INTO NEW PLANE... STILL NOT SURE WHAT THIS IS... AND WHATEVER IT IS THUNDERLIPS! NEEDS TO DO.

More piratey shenanigans with fund raising goodness!

When: September 16-18
Where: The Fantasy Flight Games Event Center, Roseville, MN

Again, this year we will donate all proceeds to our favorite local charity: Tubman

Can't make the convention, but still want help out? Then please visit skalcon.org to make a donation.

We set the bar very high with last year's inaugural Skål Con, but I am confident we can not only meet, but exceed what ever goals we set for ourselves. But to do that we need your help.

We are implementing what I hope will become an annual tradition for Skål Con: a food drive! Please bring as much non-perishable food items as you can for donation. Desired items would be things like canned fruits, vegetables, soup, and dry goods (pasta, rice, etc.). As always with food items, we can only accept unopened items in their original packaging. For each item you bring there will be an in-game benefit for your characters.

We are always looking for volunteers because you still make our job (lives) easier. If you are interested, drop me a line or pm. We are a great bunch who are mad about our game and our convention. You will leave feeling good knowing you helped make Skål Con the best it can be.

Have something you want to donate for our silent auction? We'll take it! This year's center piece is a Pathfinder Beta rule book signed by as many Paizo folks as arms we can twist. Plus, if I can track him down at GenCon, Wayne Reynolds said he would draw us a picture on the inside cover. Now, if that doesn't get you a little hopped up, I don't know what will.

Watch this space for future updates. We are lining up guests that I know you will love to meet and potentially play at their tables.

This is gonna be fun people! Let's make it so!

No, this is not a humorous thread by any means.

So I just got off the phone with the hotel. I was attempting to modify my reservation since there were additional rooms available at the con rate.

(Background! I reserved two rooms at the con rate only to be told the con rate was sold out for the last night of the con. What? Really? Fine. All of us will just pile into one room on Monday night.)

Now. Since I thought there were additional rooms available at the con rate I could simply modify my existing reservation for the two rooms with a check out on Tuesday morning.

Nope! Can't do that!

Why? Glad you asked.

The only rooms available Monday night at the con rate were for one king size bed. The hotel did not really care that there would be three people attempting to share that one bed.

I am very pissed off right now. One, that not enough rooms were blocked off at the beginning to insure that people flying from parts unknown could stay the entire convention, and two, that the additional rooms made available are with one f$+$ing bed.

This sort of experience makes a guy really consider not going to future PaizoCons if this is the norm.

THUNDERLIPS! PROUD TO ANNOUNCE NEW FIVE STAR GM FROM THE LAND OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN, BEST STATE IN THE UNION, MINNESOTA! JACK BROWN IS A TRUE ULFEN WARRIOR! FULL OF THE SPIRIT AND COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF WHISKEY NEEDED TO EMBODY WHAT FIVE STARS REPRESENT.

KEITH JUST NEEDS A POWER NAP. SAME WITH DAMIEN.

THUNDERLIPS DOES NOT REMEMBER THE END OF THE SCENARIO. I THINK WE DEFEATED THE CRITTERS. THUNDERLIPS! HAS CHRONICLE DETAILING SUCCESS SO THUNDERLIPS! WILL JUST GO WITH THAT.

FROM ENCOURAGING HIS WORK MATES TO TRY CORE PFS, TO HIS ABILITY TO WRANGLE PBP PLAYERS, JACK IS THE EPITOME OF FOR WHAT ALL ULFEN SHOULD STRIVE.

AFTER THUNDERLIPS! OF COURSE. JACK NEEDS TO WORK ON HIS BEARD.

JACK IS WHAT THE AWARD WAS FIRST INTENDED TO CONVEY: AWESOMENESS, COOL DUDENESS, DRUNKENESS (OK, MAYBE NOT THIS ONE), A COMMAND OF THE RULES, A MENTOR TO NEW PLAYERS, AND A TRULY WARM AND GENEROUS INDIVIDUAL WHO IS YOUR FRIEND MINUTES AFTER MEETING HIM.

THUNDERLIPS! IS PROUD TO BRING JACK INTO THE FOLD OF THOSE WITH FUNNY TITLES AFTER NAME.

ANYONE NOT CLAPPING NOW IS GOING TO DEAL WITH A VERY IRATE AND UNFORGIVING ULFEN BARBARIAN! CLAP HARDER!

I can't recommend Runequest 6th enough. Pete and Loz wrote a clean, elegant rule system that built on previous editions and surpassed each.

The other setting books are worth looking at as well. especially Monster Island and Mythic Britain.

As of this posting, there are only two items for listed for pre-order. Either there is artwork for the likely companion tie in for Occult Adventures they don't want to show, or something more dire is afoot. The product schedule goes to June which lists the last announced title.

Are there any plans to publish or announce additional titles?

THUNDERLIPS! AM WILLING TO TAKE LEVEL OF HUNTER TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN.

JUST THIS WEEK, THUNDERLIPS! HAD CHANCE TO PROVE HIS INFLUENCE TO SEVERAL FINE LADIES OF ABSALOM. THEY WERE ALL IMPRESSED BY TONDERNOTTER AS IS RIGHT AND PROPER. NOT ONCE DID THUNDERLIPS! NEED TO SLAP TONDERNOTTER UPSIDE A GUARD'S FACE SINCE THEY ALL RECOGNIZED ME FOR THE MAN OF INFLUENCE THAT THUNDERLIPS! AM. THUNDERLIPS! LOVE THE LADIES. THEY LOVE ME RIGHT BACK.

BUT SOON, AS THE ADVENTURE TO INTRODUCE ULFEN LINEAGE TO THESE LADIES CONTINUED, THUNDERLIPS! ENCOUNTERED A SANGUINE BEAST THE LIKES OF WHICH MADE MY HEART FLUTTER. EVEN MORE THAN MADELINE BLAKROS, MY BELOVED.

THE TROLLHOUND.

SO BEAUTIFUL. SO POWERFUL. SUCH AN ATTITUDE. SO LIKE OLD WOMAN BLAKROS. WHY CAN THUNDERLIPS! NOT HAVE ONE FOR A COMPANION? THUNDERLIPS! IS WILLING TO MAKE GREAT SACRIFICE (SEE ABOVE) TO LOCATE THIS MAGNIFICENT SANGUINE BEAST TO ROAM ABSALOM WITH. WE WOULD DO GREAT DEEDS FOR MALODOROUS! LIKE I DID FOR LADY GORILLA! THUNDERLIPS! ALWAYS WILLING TO SHAKE DOWN PEOPLE SELLERS FOR MONEY. THUNDERLIPS! AND TROLLHOUND WOULD SPREAD INFLUENCE EVERYWHERE WE WENT! LONG WALKS ON THE DOCKS... TEARING APART GNOLLS... LOVING THE LADIES...

I WOULD LOVE HIM, AND PET HIM, AND SQUEEZE HIM, AND NAME HIM hamaria.

THUNDERLIPS! HEARS THERE IS A MAN MORE POWERFUL THAN THE CARPET SELLER VALSIN IN THE PATHFINDER SOCIETY. THIS MAN OF INFLUENCE GOES BY THE NAME JOHN COMPTON. HE EVEN HAS FUNNY TITLE AFTER JOHN COMPTON! THOUGH, THUNDERLIPS! IS ADMITTEDLY CONFUSED BY DEVELOPER BEING BIGGER THAN CAPTAIN. SOMETIMES GOLARION NOT MAKE SENSE TO THUNDERLIPS! WHAT DOES MAKE SENSE IS THUNDERLIPS! WITH A TROLLHOUND COMPANION.

HOW DOES THUNDERLIPS! ACQUIRE SUCH A SANGUINE BEAST COMPANION?

Mark your calendars! This fall sees the inaugural edition of Skål Con, the newest gaming convention in Minnesota!

When: September 18-20
Where: The Fantasy Flight Games Event Center, Roseville, MN

Skål Con is three days of Pathfinder Society play to kick off Season 7. We will schedule the Tier 1-11 special Siege of Serpents along with multiple tables of The True Dragons of Absalom, Serpents Rise, the first three Season 7 scenarios, and others as well.

Skål Con is also a means for the PFS community to give back. Every dollar we make after recouping our expenses is being donated to a local charity. We will have items for auction and sale to help meet our goals.

We are still in the planning stages, but felt we have enough to whet yer all's appetites.

For those of you who know me or have seen a photo, this next bit should interest you. If, over the course of the convention, we raise a certain dollar amount I will shave my head and beard. Rest assured, this goal is no small number. I have had one haircut in three years. That's what this means to me.

We will need volunteers, naturally, because all of you make our jobs (lives) easier. If you have any questions, ask here or shoot me an email.

I will update the thread with more information as we finalize our plans.

Let's do this, people!

I was just thinking of ways to get Gencon involved...

Gencon has threatened to leave Indianapolis over an anti-gay rights measure masquerading as a religious freedom bill passed by the Indiana legislature.

It is my sound hope that Paizo is behind Gecon LLC in this endeavor.

The doors to the lodge explode inward. Plaster and splinters spray the floor while the doors hang on by sheer force of will. Light streams in the drawing room, bathing two individuals standing at the entry way wearing nothing but bear pelts and boots. One carries a large earthbreaker which the other strokes with tender movements. A strong scent of musk wafts into the room on the morning breeze.

THUNDERLIPS! RETURNS TO DEMAND A MARRIAGE CEREMONY!

THE STORY OF THUNDERLIPS! AND MADELINE BLAKROS:
THUNDERLIPS! SLAYED TWELVE BEARS WITH NOTHING BUT BARE HANDS AND TUNDERNOTTER!, RAN WITH THE CENTAURS, SWAM WITH THE GILLMEN, WRESTLED WITH THE MINOTAURS, ALL TO PROVE THUNDERLIPS!'S WORTH TO BRIDE BLAKROS.

AS THE FIRST SIGN OF HIS LOVE, THUNDERLIPS! SET UPON EVERY BEAR HE COULD. TUNDERNOTTER SANG AS SKULLS WERE CRUSHED AND BACKS WERE BROKE. THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED A CHORUS CELEBRATING THE MARTIAL APTITUDE OF THUNDERLIPS! TWELVE BEARS DID HE MEET AND TWELVE BEARS DID HE SLAY.

THUNDERLIPS! BESTED THE CENTAUR CHAMPION IN RACE ACROSS KORTOS. THE WIND BLEW FIERCE! RAIN PELTED GOLARION, TURNING EARTH AND STONE TO MUD. ROCKS GAVE AS BOTH CLIMBED HIGHER AND HIGHER. EACH CONTESTANT MOUNTED MANY MOUNTAINS. DESNA SMILED UPON THUNDERLIPS! WHEN CENTAUR PULLED AHEAD, THE GODDESS OF THE NORTH STAR BLESSED THUNDERLIPS! TO NULLIFY THE CENTAUR'S ADVANTAGE OF FOUR LEGS. EVENTUALLY THE TWO MEN NEARED THE FINISH. LAST RESERVES OF ENERGY EXPENDED, MUSCLES CRAMPING, UNTIL IN FINAL ACT WHEN SHE WHO SINGS THE SONG OF STARS SENT A GREAT BUTTERFLY TO CARRY THUNDERLIPS TO VICTORY. THE FINISH SAW CENTAURS WEEPING FOR THEY KNEW SUCH A SIGHT WAS NOT TO HAPPEN AGAIN IN THEIR LIFE. AFTER THERE WAS A FEAST. ALL SANG, DANCED, ATE, DRANK, AND LAUGHED WHEN THE MOON WAS WHITE UNTIL IT WAS WHITE AGAIN. MADELINE BLAKROS SHOWED HER AFFECTIONS NIGHTLY.

THUNDERLIPS! CONQUERED THE HIGH DOLPHIN SPEAKER OF THE GILLMEN IN CIRCUMNAVIGATION OF KORTOS. STORMS LASHED THE SEA, BEASTS GATHERED TO WITNESS THE SPECTACLE, GOZRAH HIMSELF BLESSED EACH AS THEY ENTERED THE SEA. EACH WAS A MIGHTY SWIMMER! EACH SHOWED NO QUIT! EACH LAP AROUND KORTOS A TIE! NEITHER FOE SHOWED ANY FATIGUE! WHEN THE DOLPHIN SPEAKER FALTERED, NAMESAKE BEASTS GAVE HIM ENERGY TO CONTINUE! WHEN THUNDERLIPS! SHOWED SIGNS OF DURESS, MIGHTY WHALES PROPELLED HIM THROUGH THE SEA. FINALLY, WHEN NEITHER MAN WOULD ADMIT DEFEAT, GOZREH DECLARED THUNDERLIPS! THE WINNER FOR SUCH A FEAT OF ENDURANCE HE HAD NEVER SEEN, ALL IN THE CAUSE OF LOVE. ALL GILLMEN AND ALL BEASTS OF THE SEA PRESENT NODDED IN AGREEMENT FOR SUCH A THING WAS ALL TOO TRUE. AFTER THERE WAS A FEAST. ALL SANG, SWAM, ATE, DRANK, AND LAUGHED WHEN THE MOON WAS WHITE UNTIL IT WAS WHITE AGAIN. MADELINE BLAKROS SHOWED HER AFFECTIONS NIGHTLY.

THUNDERLIPS! VANQUISHED THE KING OF THE BULLS IN SINGLE COMBAT. THE MIGHTIEST OF THE MIGHTY MINOTAURS SOUGHT OUT THUNDERLIPS! TO CHALLENGE HIM TO PERSONAL COMBAT. HE ROARED AND MOVED IN A CIRCLE, PERFORMING THE ANCIENT DANCE OF HIS TRIBE. THUNDERLIPS! SANG THE SONG OF HIS FATHER'S FATHER CALLING OUT EACH DEED MORE IMPRESSIVE THAN THE LAST. FOR SEVEN DAYS AND SEVEN NIGHTS DID THE TWO MEN RECOUNT THE VALOR OF THEIR ANCESTORS. WORD SPREAD THROUGH THE FOREST. A PRIEST OF CAYDEN CAILIEN APPEARED AS IF BY MAGIC, EXPLAINING HE RECEIVED A VISION OF A GREAT FEAST ABOUT TO HAPPEN. SOME CLAIM IT WAS THE GOD HIMSELF COME TO WATCH AND ENJOY. A WANDERING PRIESTESS OF SHELYN APPEARED, EXPLAINING SHE HAD RECEIVED A VISION OF A LOVE SO GREAT THE GODS THEMSELVES TOOK NOTICE. SOME SAY SHE WAS THE GODDESS HERSELF COME TO SANCTIFY THE LOVE BETWEEN THUNDERLIPS! AND MADELINE.

WHEN THEY COULD RECOUNT NO MORE DID THEY TURN TO FACE ONE ANOTHER. THE EARTH SHOOK, MOUNTAINS CRUMBLED, TREES FELL, AND A NOISE LIKE THAT OF THE PITS OF HELL OPENING EXPLODED WHEN THE COMBATANTS MET. SHOULDER TO SHOULDER. CHEST TO CHEST. ARM TO ARM. HORN TO HEAD. GIANTS, STORM CLOUD AND STONE, GATHERED TO WATCH THE ENSUING TEST OF STRENGTH. TREANTS BLOTTED OUT THE SUN SO GREAT WERE THEIR NUMBERS. ALL ROARED WHEN THEIR FAVORITE GAINED AN ADVANTAGE OR FOUND HIMSELF DISADVANTAGED. SUCH WAS THE DIN THAT KURGESS HIMSELF APPEARED.

THE MIGHTY CONTEST RAGED. THE MOON TURNED WHITE THEN WHITE AGAIN. EACH MAN DETERMINED TO BEST THE OTHER. THE WIND HOWLED. THE RAIN SCREAMED. BUT NEITHER COULD DROWN OUT THE ROAR OF THE CROWD AS THUNDERLIPS! PINNED THE MIGHTIEST OF THE MIGHTY TO THE EARTH AND HELD HIM THERE. SOME CLAIM IT WAS CAYDEN CAILEAN WHO REWARDED THUNDERLIPS!'S BRAVERY. SOME SAY IT WAS DESNA WHO REWARDED THUNDERLIPS!'S LUCK. SOME SAY IT WAS KURGESS WHO REWARDED THUNDERLIPS!'S STRENGTH.

ALL AGREE IT WAS SHELYN WHO REWARDED THUNDERLIPS!'S LOVE.

AFTER THERE WAS A FEAST. ALL SANG, DANCED, ATE, DRANK, AND LAUGHED WHEN THE MOON WAS WHITE UNTIL IT WAS WHITE AGAIN. MADELINE BLAKROS SHOWED HER AFFECTIONS NIGHTLY.

.....................................

THUNDERLIPS! rips open a cask of salt pork. He chews with a purpose as if he were in a trance. Madeline opens a keg of mead which she holds over THUNDERLIPS!'S open mouth. Finally, THUNDERLIPS! after having his fill of meat and mead, the two stare at each other with a look that can only be described as lusty.THUNDERLIPS! and Madeline both breathe deep, exhaling small hisses. Small wispy creatures begin to form around both, some male and some female in shape and form.

Several hours later, the room is a complete mess. Bits of wood, stone, furniture, glass, and wagon cart lie strewn across the ground. The wispy creatures have disappeared. The only sound left is the quiet, contented snoring of two people.


A large cart filled with boxes and various casks and other containers sits out front of the lodge. A man with a clipboard waits for someone, anyone, to acknowledge him. He is losing his patience.

Look, I was told to bring all this stuff here, and that you all would off load the cart. I am not taking this stuff back, either.

Do you know how bad some of this stuff smells?

I really do not care that no body from here ordered this stuff. Payment was already received. You just need to take it away.

sigh

100lbs raw oysters, 12 casks of mead, two barrels of whale oil, 50lbs salt pork, 50lbs salt beef, two dozen cases of Opparan nebbiolo, damn that's actually pretty good wine, two dozen cases Cognac d'Egorian, sweet mercy, 10 bear hides prepared to specifics, 1 crate Kellish perfume, 4 cords of firewood, and one dog.

No, the dog is part of the shipment. I don't care if he looks part wolf, you are taking him. Look, that is not my problem. I was told the beast's temperament was a selling point. Yes, that is a defining feature of him. He should have no barriers to siring pups granted he doesn't sit on them.

Miss Quick is visibly irritated by just being near the Silver Crusade lodge. Her hands fidget with the buttons on her cloak while she rocks back and forth on her feet. Her eyes dart back and forth like she expects to see someone she may have robbed back in the day. Her nervousness is very apparent.

Ok, I'm gonna make this quick.

I'm looking for my friend, THUNDERLIPS!. I was hoping one of you misguided moro-, I mean, well intentioned souls, saw him as he left Maldris's soon to be redecorated lodge. Again. He's been missing for a few days and I'm starting to get worried.

He's 7' tall, roughly 280 pounds, blond hair, blue eyes, naked, carrying an earthbreaker and Madeline Blakros, who might be just as naked. Upon uttering the prospect of a naked Madeline Blakros, Miss Quick closes her eyes tight, shudders, and bites back the bile rising in her throat.

If you see him, approach with caution. He might be sober which means he could be dangerous. I advise leaving a trail of meat and beer leading back to Skyreach. That should get him home.

Thanks, bye.

Hello? Anyone here?

Um...

I'm looking for my friend? A large Ulfen barbarian, goes by the name THUNDERLIPS!? His normal attire is nothing more than a studded leather thong and some boots. He has long blond hair, a large beard, and a massive amount of chest hair. Oh, and he always carries around his earthbreaker that I refuse to acknowledge by the name he gave to the weapon.

Yeah, ok, where was I? Oh, right. Um, you see he... uh, somehow managed to worm his way into the Blakros family. When he told me about this, he was really drunk. Even by THUNDERLIPS!/barbarian/Ulfen standards, he was lit up. So, there was a get together over at Maldris's place where we were introduced to Madeline Blakros. Calling her homely is is doing a disservice to the woman. Wow. Yeah, ok. Anyway, he- What just touched me? Seriously, what just touched me!

Miss Quick starts to back out of the room

I found his thong in the Petal District. I found bits and pieces of the dress the Blakros woman was wearing in the Petal District as well. I don't know which is worse, seeing THUNDERLIPS! naked or Madeline Blakros naked. Then again, based on what I heard used to happen around these parts you all are ok with images best left unseen. Heh heh, yeah... um, I'll let myself out thanks.

Liberty's Edge

The other day he caused a ruckus you may have heard about. I think they are still cleaning up the lodge room. I figured he'd get hungry or thirsty by now and wander home by now. I did find his studded leather thong on the way to the Petal District.

I am starting to get a little worried.

I think we can eliminate the estimable Blakros family from our efforts across the Inner Sea. It appears they have managed to ship off one of their more... homely offspring upon an unsuspecting barbarian. Naturally, he is quite smitten with himself. I don't know whose facial expression was more rewarding, our loud barbarous Ulfen or the daughter when Mother Blakros announced the engagement.

Any hoo, has anyone else done anything of late? I am still studying the various clockwork pieces I brought with me from Jormurdon. Fascinating craftsmanship, these old relics have, absolutely stunning. I must incorporate the designs into my own works. I hear we did some work with a factory in Magnimar; Golemworks, was it not? I see a trip there in my future I do believe.

THUNDERLIPS! NOT SURE WHY THERE MUST BE A LENGTHY COURTSHIP. THE DAUGHTER THUNDERLIPS! IS TO MARRY IS NOT UNPLEASING TO THUNDERLIPS! SO LENGTHY RITUAL IS OK.

TAKING BLAKROS FAMILY NAME NO BIG DEAL TO THUNDERLIPS! AS HE HAS NO LAST NAME, BUT FROM NOW ON PEOPLE WILL SING SONGS OF VALOR FOR

THUNDERLIPS! BLAKROS!
