Subject: Half-a- ling .... Half-a-ling Onward...........

Ulthok smiled to himself as listened to the Halfling.

“My Trickster frowns upon stealing money or goods from one's companions……….A partnership then,…………………..Lothor has been a stalwart friend and a much needed ally these last few months, but mine? ..Never,…. I take none to keep and belong only to my Trickster. .....…If we ever know a moment's peace in a town with good ale I'll drink to keeping the tall ones safe and merry………. For now however, if I am the only one the group is waiting on, I should not hold you up any longer. I have said my prayers and my god is pleased with me. I would very much like to see daylight with free eyes again.”

Gathering his gear he acknowledged Valene’s knowing it was time to move on,…“Well thank your god for me………… it is nice to have you with us… and I hope we won’t have to wait so long for that drink. But we must prepare now to leave, at least to start toward that town with good ale. If there is anything you could tell us about the giant’s lair that may make it easier to get out of this dreadful mountain our leader Cor would appreciate the information.”

Subject: Crispy Critters.................

Well I thought it said these were mostly the giant children, so sleep sould work on them. And it didn't seem to indicate it was a clan just a few. The fewer critters up and active the fewer we have to battle. And if needed they are easy targets.

If there is no stuff to salvage and Sirene likes to kill children then Ulthok has fireball ready to roast and toast. In that small room it would clear it nicely. We should get the room size from Valene, the backdraft through the opening could be an issue for the party.

Domination would only affect one giant, but Chaos could be fun to watch. Depending those that might get saving throws Sirenes level add could possibly cover all the giants in the lair. They will all react differently depending on the DM roll for each.

Topic: Trail of the Rokash
Subject: A Time To Act.......

“I am done talking, if you say anything else other than taking your leave or make any move other than turning your mounts North, my men will attack and the first target will be the lovely woman in the robes. I’m sorry, the final choice is now yours."

Roger listened to man that now showed he had no honor. He would attack a seeming unprotected woman to bully and get his way. Roger had offered him a fair, equitable and “Honorable” solution, but the brigand was just too set in his dishonest ways......


From the time Roger was eleven he had learned what honor was and what honor could cost. Others had thought he was selected to attend the Royal Guards training because he was the illegitimate grandson of one of the court nobles. It was a way for the grandfather to manage the dishonor of his daughter having a child out of wedlock. Perhaps the boy might at least die in combat.

One morning during the training he was ushered into one of the Royal chambers, there he met a young man, it was the Emperor. Rogerius watched him in silence for what seemed hours. Then standing,drawing himself to full stature he walk over to the boy. “Do you know who I am boy?” he asked in stern but gentle tone.

“Yes ‘, answered the boy, “You are my Emperor.”

The man stood in silence for moment, his face gentled and he said, ”No, I’m your father.”

The boy was stunned, he was the Emperors son? Why did he have to grow up alone, he and his mother, away from family? It wasn’t right, it wasn’t fair, as he open his mouth to speak the Emperor lower his eyes and said, ”I’m sorry you have had to live in the shadow on shame. It is the way things are, but you deserve to know who you are. I will not set out a public announcement of you, but I will not deny you. There is honor still in this family and I want you to understand that. I can never offer you the throne, but you can earn a place in the realm through your acts. Will you help me unit this land back into one nation?” The Emperor extends his hand offering a signet ring. “This is the symbol of the New Realm, if you accept it; it will be your link to the family and to those that are dedicated to uniting Drannon. “

The boy knew it was not the normal act of a royal to do as this man did. There was honor in this man.......


Roger paused a moment to let the bandit swell in over confidence. Then screaming a blood curdling battle cry to distract the archer, he spurred his horse charging the men to the left of wagon. He attempted to trample the men in his way. He drew his sword as he bared down on the archer. He would dispatch him and then attend to the honor less leader.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Her Stuff.................

Does Valene know if any her other stuff is in the giant's lair? Her hat for instance, it could be something we try to salvage. If one of us were to cast a fireball in the lair all her stuff could be distroyed.

Ulthok has "Sleep" ready which would take down several (depending the roll) without causing area damage.

He also has 10" radius invisibility which could allow several member to huddle together to past through undetected.

So there are a couple of ideas, I'm musing a post so we need to plan this next move.

Well time to get back to work. Valene needs to take a moment and give Cor a detailed layout of the giants lair. Once we reach the opening we need a way to get through one by one without being munch by the big guys.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A New Start............

The soft lilt and soothing sound of small cleric’s voice seemed in stark contrast to the strain and terror of the past few hours. Ulthok could tell this one has the allure to lull others into a sense of well being; he wonder if she then picked their pockets.

When her prayers were done she rose and approached him. As she moved he couldn’t help but notice that his breeches never looked that good on him.

She approached him. “Did you have something you wished to ask me?” …... “Been a long time since I've seen another skilled with their hands.”

Putting on one his best innocent looks Ulthok chuckled, “Uncle Trapspringer once said, beware of a woman wearing a mask,….. she may steal more than your money.”... Valene was a natural, her voice, she smile, her will…… it was no chance she survived a year with the hill giants.

“It is nice to know that there is another able person to help clear a safe path for this group. It has been an honor and yet a burden being the only one to sense the items of destruction and pain. May we complement one another to keep these tall ones safe; they do have their uses. “

Ulthok glanced over at Lothor, ”Your human buffed up nicely, there is more there then he lets on. We keep him safe and he’ll help keep us alive.”

Subject: Restart............

Ok Tann, you got a plan?

Can you throw your voice?

Do we want to try using the sound direction confusion to get the last of brothers to head to the gun fire? Like maybe Ash could mumble out "Kid.. Help..." If he moves across the door below Asher will drop on him, "Meet My Leettle Friend" slice,slice.


Just a thought, does Wolf still have a working com? We could use that to make the brother think he needed to go help. We get him to move we can jump him.

Worst comes to worst, Wolf closes to Ash, Ash drops and draws the fire then Wolf pops the brother. Risking the noise.


One way or another the Kid is going down to thump that last brother. If I need to burn some points to add to his agility roll this is the time. Hmmm.... I wonder how many points I have left?

Topic: Rokash Adventure Q&A
Subject: Just when it was getting exciting.....

Well sorry to lose one but the game is still a foot.

If I read the map correctly, the archer is 70 feet away (5 feet per square x 14 squares) and Liriel has partial cover from the wagon because the archer is standing on the ground behind the wagon with should put a minus to the attack role. If she has high dex may have a bonus against attack. So her odds could be getting better and if her intitive is before the archer she could duck and cast a spell (move action and attack action).

If Roger and Eadric charge they can close the gap and shield Liriel. Hmmm... I like that idea, what would Grimm Do?

Roger is very likely to charge, he can trample at least one of the badies and then go after the leader.

After the block Eadric could go right over those two and Roger go left of the wagon.

Ok, more ideas!!!!

Subject: Nice post.........

Kriea... looks like a good start between the thieves. I wasn't sure how you wanted your character to react, so I didn't push it too far.

Some of the earlier versions of Ulthok have him a bit lighter and joking, more stereotype Halfling. I've kept some of his humor but started to work on his darker side.

This should be interesting.....and what about Lothor? Was his attentions because of isolation or.......???

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A Change Of Heart...............

The mage had taken a chance of offending the new member of the party by taking the liberty to cast a simple cantrip of clean on her. But it just wasn’t right for one of the “folk” to have to look like that.

When the manacle of spiritual blocking was removed from Valene’s wrist a confidence and glow seemed to engulf her. It was good that she looked as strong as Ulthok knew she was.

Now sitting quitly the mage watched as Sirene studied the book left by Halia. The elegant elven beauty seemed upset as she slammed the book shut. The thief watched from the corner of his eye as she glanced his direction then pattered off to speak with the new eleven warrior. Winter is never as cold as the glance of a woman when she does not want your attention. It had been a fun thought that the tall one might enjoy a bit of mischief and distraction but now there was a equal and as they say “size matters”.

Taking advantage of the rest time Ulthok refreshed the spells he had spent in the escape. As he studied he noticed the lady Beestinger in deep contemplation.

He had watched as the three they accepted weapons and items and was impressed with selection the lady had chosen.

She was also a “Master of Shadows”, perhaps she might let him steal a kiss.

Subject: Another Fine Mess...............

Ok gang, what's it going to be? Jenna, you are the one in most danger, Roger will back off to protect you. Your post said the mage was bringing a spell to mind but didn't cast it, so she is not protected. Grimm is the only one ready for combat besides Roger. The rest of you had time to post protective actions, but none of you did. Grimm has his sling ready to plunk the archer, but if his Initiative roll is not before the archer then Liriel may take an arrow. Liriel's AC is likely low without her spell so the chance is good she'll get hit.

It's too bad that when archer pulled his arrow, none of you got ready.

So do we put our tail between our legs and creep away or do we go for XP and kick some lowlife booty????????????

Sirène looked over at Ulthok. She had noticed the way the halfling looked at her; a look she doubted she could ever return. ‘Besides I don’t think it’s that sort of break I need.

Topic: Trail of the Rokash
Subject: A Last Chance..........

Roger had not intended to be at the forefront of this group for other than scouting the trail. But fate has a strange way of moving you where you need to be. He had hoped these men would be honorable, but they were just thugs.

"We are not men of Drannon. We also have no way of knowing what you say is true. You could be people who just want to take what we have found. Now this wagon has no owner present, and is not on anyone lands but a public road therefore rights of salvage give us the right to claim these items."

Roger was ready to reply when out of the minions piped up.

"I say we kill these and take their horses." The leader turned suddenly and back handed the speaker and he tumbled backwards and off of the wagon to land hard upon the ground.
"As I was saying, unless you can prove you are the owner then this stuff is up for grabs. We were here first."

Roger held his tongue, this hadn’t played out yet.

"Now, as to looking for some girl, we didn’t see anyone here but Tokar over there saw some strange tracks headed North. You are welcome to follow them, but if you continue your insistence over this wagon and it's belongings then we have a problem." As if on cue, drew their swords and the bowman whipped out an arrow and notched it but did not draw or aim. None of them moved but they stood armed and ready for a battle.

"So," the leader asked, "what do you say? The choice is yours; no one need die here today. Not over these meager belongings."

The tracker fingered his ring of the "New Realm".

“You are right, they are meager belongs, but they are the life treasures of a shattered man. “ Nudging his horse a couples of steps forward Roger leaned toward the gang leader. “Perhaps I can make this a better deal for you?”

“ If you will deliver this wagon to the man called Tal in Vala’Lia, I will give you each four gold now.... and five more when we return."

"The catch is you will give me your weapons. And as for you”, he looked the leader in the eye “your visitors citizen coin too."

"The gold will be more than enough to buy new weapons and with your coin I’ll be able to find you to pay you the balance.”

“So now the choice is yours!”

Subject: If you want to stay long term, then it can happen.............

As the story goes, from what I see, Cor and Ulthok are original characters. Both have had close calls but have come back. Cor went evil and Ulthok was killed. Now cor has been saved and Ulthok healed. So as long as we have a Cleric or such that can raise the dead you always have a chance.

The changing of character seems to have more to do with the writers and not the characters. Players lose interest or are not able to continue so their character is replaced. In my case I was lucky to take over Ulthok and keep him around.

I like this story and game, I'm hoping to be in it a long time. I've only scratched the surface of what Ulthok can do and who he is.

So don't give up before we've started, there is still a major war to win.
