Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: The Fork............

The peaceful calm and quiet of the leisurely bath was interrupted by rapping on the door. Stepping from the bath and wrapping a towel around his waist the mage answered the door. There in hall stood Cor in his best armor.

“Don’t tell me….the King has called us again?” The Knight’s cleric let out a short bark of a laugh and told Ulthok not to worry about that …yet. But there was a new Paladin from the King of Callahorn joining our party. “Well at least you’ve got a homelander, I hope he’s strong.” The cleric’s brow furrowed slightly, as answered let him know it was a she. Her name was Lady Jessica Voltaire, Knight Defender of the Realm. Cor then excused himself to get into something more comfortable, like tall cold mug of ale.

Stepping back into his room he saw Peri snoozing contently in the empty pie tin. “Well the bath is cold so as long as I’m up another ale would be good.” Dressing quickly the Halfling then made his way to the dinning room. Passing through the halls he heard Valene call him.

“Ulthok? Can we talk for a moment?” He stopped as she caught up to him. “I will be brief for seriousness does not suit me tonight, but we both know that our affections have gotten out of hand. It does not suit people of our kind to be so closely attached to a single other. I value you, both your friendship and your skills... but this hot and heavy romance must cool. My life is owed to my god... and with the way things are....” Her pleasantness cracked, a hiccup of sadness in her voice.

Ulthok’s heart pounded as the beautiful female cleric continued.

“Maybe if we were not in the situation that we are...” She stopped, all her composure failing her. “If things were different I like to think maybe I would be happy with you.”…….. “but it seems the prank is on me this time... to find someone that suits me so well at the exact moment when I cannot devote myself to having him.”

As he Opened his mouth to tell her he understood she turned and “RAN” down the hall away from him. With deep sigh he remembered the words of Uncle Trapspringer, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it!” Ulthok figured Valene had found her fork and decided to take it.

“Ok, so now I really can use that ale now.”

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A Hard Days Day........

The raid on the machines was going close to plan as the teams attack burst the first into flame. But as they attacked the next the course of battle changed as it often will. The giant guarding the great tool of destruction saw the spells being cast and realized there was something wrong with this group of Kobolds and turned to attacked them as his machine burst into flame too. Ulthok knew Valene was one of the two kobolds the giant was after but the disguise was even too good for him. So before the behemoth could do them harm the mage loosed a flash of lightening to stun and drop it before it could reach the team. Two energy arrows finished the job felling the giant like a huge tree. Thus started the melee as the other defender rallied to the sound of the giant hitting the ground blocking the team’s advance to the next machine.
The scene of the oncoming Orcs and Kobolds reminded Ulthok of the charging Wargs around the wagons. Raising his hands the mage loosed the same spell as then.

“Team behind me, prepare to charge the center.” Spreading from his finger tips Ulthok utter “Brrrrrr,” and cast a cone of cold. Before them the charging creature stopped in their tracks as the Orcs and Kobolds froze solid, but the two giants were only slowed.

The party charged through the frozen enemy and swarmed the giants. Cor and Rayne made quick work of the first, but it might mace had made its mark on the two. The Halfling cleric rushed to attend Cor and the range. The rest rushed the second inflicting mortal wounds, but it reached out grabbing one of the group as it fell. The huge hands clasped over the kobolds head. Before Ulthok could pull Idrenal to sever the giants arm it fell and crushed the member skull. The only mercy was that it was quick. Ulthok looked quickly to see who the giant had killed….. for now he could only tell that it was one of tall fighters as they took revenge and slaughtered the giant like an oversized cow.

Looking to Cor the mage saw the look in the leader’s face and knew the fighter couldn’t be saved by the cleric’s spell to raise the dead. Reluctantly he moved on the next target.

As he got into range the Halfling draw on his last spell of fire ball and engulfed the last machine in fire. Then from above a lightning bolt struck the machine , Sirene had rejoined the team.

Reaching out to Peri, Ulthok called her, “Peri, to me… now…., we need to leave.” Within moments the mage felt a slight pressure on his shoulder. A small voice inside his mind said impatiently, “Ok..ok.. I’m here already…. That nasty black robe thingy must have been strong or lucky.. it never felt my spells.”

“Stay close my friend we need to leave now.” Then as Sirene landed he call to the others, “To us.. quick we need to teleport back!” As they gathered Sirene looked to Cor, he shook his head and she knew they were missing one.
With the group set Ulthok took his material and whispered, ”There’s no place like home.”

He expected the tingle of energy of their body separating from this location to congeal again at their intended destination. But nothing….Sirene looked to Ulthok, her spell failed too. “Great googly moogly…….Well group looks like we do it the hard way…..back out the way we came in….follow me, again!” Together they rushed back to open in the dome.

By the time they’d reached the opening the last two giant had taken up position to hold them while reenforcements were came to finish them off. Remembering how Maggott would call him Master of Shadows, the mage called up help of his own and summoned three shadow monsters to drain the life from those blocking their way and Sirene brought in a fire elemental that cast the giants aside. Through the ravaging carnage the party escaped the dome. Regrouping outside the party was short another member, as they search quickly it was to no avail. Cor directed them to move, the mission was complete now was time to survive.

Drawing his wand of cold Ulthok lead the party back and as they came upon a group orcs in the treaches he cast his last cone of cold again freezing these so the other would finish them as they passed. The group charged on. Enemy fighter and archer pursued, though a hail of arrows and spears they ran. Ulthok using his wand to clear large groups in front of them and the other defending against those that tried to flank them.

Ulthok had never been much for prayers, but hoped Cor’s Odin and Valene’s deity would smile on them.

Approaching the city the spell that had disguised them was lifted so the that archers on the wall would not add to their trouble. As they reach the passage that would lead them to safety the fighter Lexson dropped to her knees and then rolled on her back. A sinister black arrow had pierced her and had quickly festered. Cor and Valene knelt by her to heal her and get her inside but their magic would not help her. Before their eye she started to change, she was a half dragon and their healing magic could not heal her. Ulthok stood close behind Val to protect her from any arrows or spears that might come. There he over heard as the young fighter spoke to Cor.

“Save her you must Dwarf, complete my mission if you hold this world dear. Find our Queen and save her, or the Dragons of Good will never fly in your defense.” Then she breathed no more.The party quickly gathered her up and they all fled into the safety of city.

Cor had Lexson taken to a place for honorable burial and the remaining party were lead back to the great hall. There they told their story and heard of had happened with other teams from the few that had returned. As Ulthok listened he knew someone’s deity had watched over them, for there’s was the only party to return with most of its members surviving.

When that was done Cor attended to Lexson and surely left prayer for Sorin and Eclipes. The remaining team was escourted back to the home of St Albans.

Fatigue now settled on Ulthok as they walked through the streets, it would be good to bath and rest in a soft bed. The kitchen would surely have some sweet treats he could find to reward Peri for help and bravery.

He also noticed how Valene now walked quietly ahead near the guards. She seemed in deep thought or perhaps it was fatigue weighing down on her too. Battles and near death changes you each time you face it, perhaps … well times change.

Reaching the General home Ulthok made his way to the kitchen and there a fresh apple pie had just come out of the oven. Peri could bearly contain herself. The fluttering of her tiny wing and her musical squeaks charmed the kitchen staff once again. The two left the kitchen with a tray of food, drink and a steaming apple pie.

Word had spread quickly of their return and house staff had a hot bath waiting in his room. The mage placed the pie on the dresser and the tray of food by the bath.

”Peri.. enjoy your well earned pie…I’ll enjoy this bath and bit of food and ale.” The two quietly spent the evening alone in their room.

BTW, I had a good interview today but I'm the first of 4 candidates and there will be a second round of group interviews later.

I'm seeing another company next Wednesday.

In the mean time, I'll sit back in my jamies all day with my feet up and drink beer! 8>p

Oh yeah and I just finished the four disc set of Firefly tonight!

Will we see the naked dancing bard again?

I'd hoped to bring the image of the Grateful Dead dancing bear to that old post in the temple of the naked dancing bards. Too bad the storey line change and it was for naught.

Your references to Ulthok as a shadow master have lead me to try and figure better ways to use that skill.

Again, good to hear from the Epic Bard!

Kriea, if you want to cool off the Halfling fling it would be easy for the two rogues to know they are friends with benefits. It can be cooled off now without really changing how they are as individuals.

Maybe Wolf would remember the nerdy guys that came into the engine room and use them to help just to keep them busy and out trouble. He and John could split the four up to better control them. Those kids do seem to have at least "Book Smarts".

Willow has her ways of getting the men to help. Herding the cats by using the men and playing to the "High" ladies egoes could help control stuff in the cargo bay.

Sifu (if he's well enough)may be able to watch "security" and keep an eye on the white suit man.

Just some thoughts.

Ok, I'll do a bit of an edit to blend in Peri.


Ok, the edit is done, I hope Viv approves.


Peri's spell should start to effect the Black Robe and the Koblds before they start thier second attack on Sirene. It should break their concentration effecting the archers aim and then both the other as they start to laugh. Hopefully the Black Robe won't be able to cast in the 3rd attack.
