Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A Time For Fun.................

They made their way into the Rising Moon proper. Only to find the tavern part of the Inn almost overcrowded with thank full villagers and their families. All wanting to give the party a shake of a hand or a hug or a kiss of thanks.

Ulthok understood the despair the townsfolk may have been living with since their clerics and warriors had left for battle. The kindness of the party’s healers had won them all the gratitude of the people. He needed to do his part.

Passing among the children of the families, they would timidly extend their hand to the short stranger. With a smile and a nod Ulthok cast a cantrip of present as he shook their hand and a copper coin appeared in each small hand. Squeals of children’s glee fill the room.

The small mage then turned to the common, “Ah, this is a lovely sight, a truly welcoming place. May I offer a little amusement? “

Reaching out his hand Ulthok mutters “four” and cast the cantrip of Colored Lights . Four delicately colored globes appear around Ulthok and start moving as if he were juggling. Around the room the towns people cheer, for this has been the first fun they have had in a long time.
As the globes faded the group moved toward the tables that had been set for them and the crowd slowly draw away to leave them to their meal.

A pretty barmaid placed a tankard of ale down in front Cor. A smile beamed across his face as reach for the handle.

With a laugh and a wink Ulthok reach out and the tankard slide down the table to his hand. “Ah my friend you are true to your word of buying us a drink.”

Holding up the tankard, “A challenge my friend!.. Give him another tankard. Now let’s see who gets to the bottom first. On three! One….Two…. Three!”

As Cor raised his mug bright red smoke started pour out. The Dwarven leader growled as he slammed the mug on the table top.

“Ok, Ok…. “ Ulthok laughed as he set his tankard down too. “I promise this time no surprises will come out of your drink… Ready…set…go….” Ulthok lifted his mug and waved his hand. Cor deftly seized his tankard and rapidly brought it to his lips. Tilting his head back, anticipating the joyous ambrosia, but nothing came out, the mug has sealed over. This time Cor let out a roar of laughter as he placed the mug back on the table.

Raising his tankard in salute Ulthok smiled, “My friend, it has been too long since I’ve heard your laugh, it does my heart well to have that sound grace my ears. Now raise your drink and enjoy.” Ulthok released the cantrip and drew deeply on his own ale.

With foam still visible on his upper lip he addressed the party, “Let us all enjoy this fair and then later, perhaps our cleaver bard will grace us with more of his sweet music.”

Turning to Valene, “Even if I must hum or sing, you shall have music so we can dance.”

(OCC, maybe Keeper and Valene might add something.)

Hornsilver Mine - Old Shaft, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:35 am Planet Time

“I sure hope he’s the last of them, I don’t have too many more places left that family ain’t thumped.”

“Amen to that my friend, you up to continue?”

From the darkness up the drift there is a rapid secession of three pop noises, like water balloons breaking at a kids party. Wolf grunts loudly as the first bullet hits him, then a second and third; the big mechanic knocked backwards and falls to the ground. With sound of the first grunt Asher throws himself to the floor and close to the wall.

The Kid reeled in horror and anger as the man that just saved his life was dropped cold to the ground.
From the same darkness comes a cold laughter. "Sorry Talhone, but your friend there doesn't seem to understand that this haft is unstable. Couldn’t have him shoot that shotgun again." The sheriff’s voice comes out of the gloom. "You are fast boy! Almost as fast as me, but you ain't got a hope so why don't you just throw you weapons my way and stand up nice and slow."

Time seemed slow as the kid lay flat in the dirt on the floor of the mine. Asher felt the crushing weight of failure, he’d tried to help. …he’d been shot, stunned, blown up and now Wolf was dead. His heart raced, his ear rung and just wanted Pearson dead, no matter what happed to him. The sheriff must have infrared scope and the gun slinger reasoned that Pearson had bead on him now.
“Ta Ma Duh” (damn it )……. “Go Hwong Tong” (Enough of this nonsense)…. Asher slowly slid his hand into the pouch where the hard metal spheres rested . He knew the feel of the Fragmentation Grenade. “Pearson, I’m tossing my gun….” Ash pulled the grenade out, than slid his Python from its holster and tossed it toward the sound of Pearson voice. “I’m raising my hands and stand’n. “ Ash clutched the grenade holding the clip tight and pulled the pin. As he started to stand he held the grenade out in front of so Pearson scanning through the infrared sight he could see the round cold dark spot against the reddish glow of his hand.
Do you see this in my hand? ……..The pin is out……..If you shoot, we’re both dead! …. You and your people have already taken too much from me, so I ain’t got nothing left to loose, but you do! …..If you’re dead you won’t get your gold…….If you’re dead you won’t get Miss Bridgett………..You were going to kill me anyway, but if you shoot me this here banger will either kill you quick or drop this whole shaft on your head. “Juh Guh Jee Hua Juhn Kuh Pah! (There’s nothing in this plan that isn’t Horrific)

“Put your gun down and crawl over here…… you do that and you’ll live!” Asher stared into the darkness, enough was enough!

I think this a great place for a few Cantrips of playful fun.
A bit of good old fashion show magic to delight the crowd.

Maybe the cleric might try a few Orisons to help the merriment.

Subject: They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor...

So here's what happened to those that signed.

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

Would we be willing to do the same now?

Topic: Happy 4th of July
Subject: It was the People... of the People.....for the People......

When in the course of human events.........

There wasn't regular army when this country took it's independance. It was the people risking everything. If you check back on who signed the Declaration most of them did lose everything.

Remeber what we said and think of why we said!

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Actually it was "written" in stages between 1937 and 1949, much of it during World War II.

It was published in 1954 -55.

I printed the map and got most of it figured out. So it good.

K. you may have missing the escape, but the adventure continues. I've indicated that Ulthok is headed to the Rising Moon. He'll take a room there, as much as he'd like a drink, he'll take a bath first. After that he'll join the other in the common room for food drink and fun. Cantrips of Clean just don't measure up to hot bath. Ulthok may be rouge, but he is a civilized rouge.

Is that a Bordello on the North East road?

Tann, maybe a brief decription of shops would be handy.
There seems to beplaces to sell our extra goods and purchase new supplies.

Did we ever deside if Haila's book was a magic book or a prayer book?

Subject: Small Pleasures.............

The party made their way into Gygax. Ulthok deemed that in this area any settlement with two Inns or more gets to be called a city. Maggot had mentioned an Inn called The Rising Moon so that was his destination. Thoughts of food, drink and friends kept his pace brisk. The inside of a cheerful common room was a pleasure sorely missed.

As the party passed through the streets, Valene slipped up next to Ulthok. Entwining her fingers in his she slowed his walk, bending him near she whispered,"I want you to dance with me. It's been too long since I've met someone who could match me. Are your fleet feet up to the task?"Her breath was warm and gentle on his neck, a smile gleamed in his eyes as she tried to slip away. Ulthok was still holding her hand and deftly raised her arm spinning her in smooth pirouette. Releasing her hand he made slight half bow. As her eyes caught his, the thief mouthed, “Done”.

Yes it was good to be out of that mountain. Now what other adventure may await at the Rising Moon?
