Topic: The Chakran Portal - Q/A
Subject: alright

We'll be waiting for your post, though if it's not there on Saturday afternoon (my afternoon, sooner than yours) I'll update, and Malius will just spend his time checking on his two ferrets. Is that ok? I don't want to rush you, but I also want to keep my saturday schedule since it seems to be working well so far.

And Val, is that your idea of humor? Posting in a different colour when we just discuss that? Anyways... post, since Jozan posted already, and it involves Draven.

That is totally awesome, Olan.

Question: I don't really understand how you practice baseball... I suppose I have the same problem as Skari, people don't really play so much here.
With basketball it's easy to practice since the ball doesn't go so far away. The same goes for soccer or tennis etc... but baseball? You can throw the ball once, but then it gets hit away, right?

Did anybody know they're making a Dragon Lance movie? It's going to be a cartoon (eurgh!) though.

I hope they're not going to mess this up like the DnD movie, or lately Eragon.

Topic: The Chakran Portal - an Adventure in Audalis
Subject: update 35, of wounds, fire and fishmen

Kharolis Mountains
East base of the mountains
24th day of the 7th month: Pfier
9:16 pm

As the evening progressed into night, the commotion in the camp died down. The sickle-wielding impostor and his hellhound companion had been defeated. The adventurers scattered on different paths now their common goal had vanished.
Alyssia lingered in her connection to her Goddess. She had felt a power rush through her that she had not sensed before. For a slight moment she had felt the grace of her divine patron, and it had drained her, together with the battle wounds and the hellish fire. Once more she connected to the energy of the Reverent Lady of Spirits, and she felt her body soaking in relaxation. Her wounds and scorched skin tightened and healed, though she needed new robes soon. She was showing more of her skin than a lady should.
Even in her weariest moment her mind went out to her companions, one of them specifically. But the man that approached her was no Draven, though he was dark in features. Malius approached, looking at his hands in astonishment. They were blistered and red. His dark skin had been burned so hard it looked like that of an ordinary Syl, but with a sick, dark red tone to it. He looked up at her, and then looked around. The ranger seemed to be looking for something, though he did not speak.
Alyssia stepped up to him and placed her hands on his forearms (I assume you’ll aid him). Moments later he was revived and healthy once more.

When the hellhound had been obliterated, Thondrek had not waited another moment to decide his next action. His mind was already set on seeing the incredible black blade once more. It was almost unfair that a human should wield it. A Khord would obviously do more justice to its perfect craftsmanship. But the Duskblade knew that for now it was enough to see the weapon in action, and so he eagerly plunged himself into the bushes.
Loda followed only seconds after him. But she was not pursuing a love-interest. Fear had gripped her heart, and no Khordaldrum could ever replace Gothard. He had been her drinking companion for too long!
She remembered how she had sent him to aid Draven. But the human warrior was nowhere to be seen, and there was an unsettling silence that nocturnal bugs didn’t even dare disturb.
The two Khords entered a sea of leaves, and soon a thick mist began to spread around them. They separately tried to find their way through the area. Through the fog they could see the silhouettes of trees and of each other. Then suddenly a man loomed up from the cloudy darkness. It was Draven. He passed them as if he didn’t notice them, and left in the direction they had come from.

Loda found Gothard near the body of a young woman. He was splattered with blood, that was not his own, and appeared to be in a state of utter hallucination. His eyes were blank and it took a while before he reacted to her. The woman had been cut open heavily, and the sight of her was unsettling to even the battle-worn Khords.

(OOC: Gothard will now join Loda again, but he acts like he had just had the biggest trip in his life)

Alyssia and Malius saw Draven walk through the camp, coming from the bushes but not stopping to even glance at them. He walked passed the fire and into the field, towards a lone tree. There he sank down, his eyes lost to the stars above.

Londelirinen Kingdom
Aerie of the High King
Urvanial’s tower
26th day of the 7th month: Pfier
1:25 pm

There was a heat building up in the druid’s highest room. Elessarae could feel it building up like the sun was gradually coming down upon them. Urvanial still stood in the place where he had been standing while casting his spell. His face was frozen in a grimace of concentration. For a moment she wanted to turn around and drag him with her, but she realized then that the warning had been for her. The druid had no intention of leaving the room. Owls dove at him and raked his flesh and cloths alike. The bladesinger herself was under a heavy attack. A cloud of approximately 25 of the creatures were now clawing and hooting their gibberish in and around the tower.

She tried to shield her face with her sword as she rushed through the waves of feathers and talons towards the exit. She found Telliri on her way and called out to him to get a grip on himself. Kher, the Khordaldrum assistant, also came running their way. He cleaved two owls with his shovel and then threw the tool into a far corner. He grabbed the captain of the guard, as Elessar started her chanting song of courage. Although she had sung it many times before, she felt her voice tremble under the constant pain of claws and beaks. Her skin was being shredded and punctured everywhere. The owls were too many to pick a single target clearly. The words from her mouth reached Telliri, and he started to crawl towards the opening in the ground. The Khord yanked him along as well, and so all three of them made their way through the swarm.

Exhausted and in agony Telliri let himself fall down the ladder. Kher followed him, sliding down without using the steps, and last came Elessar herself. She could barely see the walls of the room and Urvanial himself was lost from sight, but the heat was now incredible. Then suddenly an arm of flame sprang over her head and pierced like a cannon through the cloud of owls. Several tongues of fire followed and the bladesinger had to shield her face from the wavering heat.

Something tugged her down on her pants. It was the young moonhorse. A wooden lid closed the opening atop the ladder and they all breathed heavily in the underground territory of the druid’s tower.
(OOC: After several seconds the roaring noise upstairs fades. Telliri is now being taken care of by the Khord. If you decide to go up, you’ll find a scorched room with molten and burnt owls. They’re all dead, and Urvanial is lying on the spot where he was standing. He is alive, but heavily injured from claws and beaks, not from fire.)

Inhabited Cave
South-west Chakran Mtns.
28th day of the 7th month: Pfier
12:37 am

The fishmen looked at Vidar. Their bulbous eyes blinked several times before they reacted to his presence.
As he stepped closer, two of the creatures also stepped forward. The other two suddenly darted into action. They both ran towards the puddle under the torch, and dove into it. Although it had looked like a small surface, apparently it was deeper than it looked, for the two creatures completely submerged and disappeared from sight.
The other two took more steps forward, but only one persisted. The other backed against the left wall and stared at Vidar and its brother with an observant and emotionless glare.

The bolder fishman came straight at Vidar with nothing but claws and teeth. The Khord stood waiting for it, and when it came within reach he let his axe come down. Then he impossible happened; Vidar missed. The axe came straight, but bounced off a scale on the fishman’s shoulder. The creature grabbed the Khord by the shoulder and closed its jaws around his chest muscles. Teeth grit on metal as Vidar’s breastplate saved him from more damage. He let his axe come down again, and cleaved it into the fishy neck of the thing. Sharp spasms went through the fishman’s body, flapping its long tail back and forth. Then it fell limp on the floor, claw scraping over metal armor as it went down.

The other fishman backed away even further, pressing itself harder against the stone wall. It bend its head lower, though never took its gaze off Vidar. It looked scared.

I have to stop this before this goes too far *ouch... too late*.

To Kaelyn: I'm sorry, but there will be no backposting for Thondrek. We will assume that he has aided in killing the sickle man. He is now with the rest of the party, right after Allysia destroyed the hellhound. If you intend to walk into the bushes and find Draven, that's fine. But you'll have to go through an obscuring mist, so it will be hard to spot him.

I'll change the sheet soon. Don't have time now.
-edit: it's done...

Topic: The Chakran Portal - an Adventure in Audalis
Subject: Vidar and the tunnel

Inhabited Cave
South-west Chakran Mtns.
28th day of the 7th month: Pfier
12:37 am

The watery splashes up ahead in the tunnel betrayed movement. Perhaps more of the stinking fishmen were gathering there? Vidar had found the entrance to their cave by chance, earlier that day. He had been looking for a place to rest, a place where the sharp winds of the Chakran Mountains wouldn’t claw so much at his wear. Between several boulders he had seen a small opening in the rock, a small stream of water barely flowing from it.
He had a quest to fulfil, and this could be the place as good as any. So into the dark he had gone, his eyes switching to the black and grey of the Khordaldrum darkvision. After a few minutes he had been surprised by two humanoids that stank of rotting fish and slime. In the heat of the battle that followed he had no chance to see his enemy properly, but when their blood was spilling onto the already slippery rock, he had time to look more closely. They were a mix of men and fish, their bodies scaled but weaker in flesh. They had attacked with simple spears, no match for the seasoned fighter that Vidar was.

After that little encounter, he had been more on his guard. The damp tunnels were pockmarked with holes and crevices smoothed out by ages of running water. At times he mistook small bulbs of stone for the round eyes of the fishmen. The dripping of water slowly became less annoying. Ten minutes had gone by since his initial encounter with the foul smelling creatures, but now he heard something that was different.

Rounding a corner he peered from the darkness into a widening of the tunnel. A single torch burnt in a far corner. Its light was so dim, it didn’t even reach the place where he was standing. In this area stood several old and rotten pieces of furniture, obviously of elven making but mouldy and disfigured by ages of dampness. The room was about 30 feet long, and 12 at its widest point. In the vague illumination he saw at least 4 of the fishmen sitting and walking around. They had not spotted him yet.

(OOC: The tunnel continues beyond the room. There is also a bigger puddle of water close to where the torch is hanging on the wall.)

Topic: The Chakran Portal - Q/A
Subject: ok, here goes:

I'm writing a special update for Vidar right now. But since some people are confused on who is where and where is what, let me give a little summary right here:

There are three storylines (or game-lines if you prefer):
1 - The main group, consisting of everybody except Elessarae and Vidar. Set out from Khordal with a mission to go to Chakranna, a lost city of an extinct race of dwarves. There they must find knowledge or valuable items for a Khordaldrum salesman. If they can find out anything about the Chakran Portal, that would be an extra bonus.

2 - Elessar. New to the Bladesinger Order, this elven woman is set out on a quest that is unknown to other players.

3 - Vidar. Story coming up. 3rd line belonged to Tobin, but his player quit, and Tobin is now a necromantic experiment.

In time, all these storylines will come together and people will be one group. But that's my intention, so it will probably turn out to go an entirely different way

Also: Give a very warm welcome to our one and only webmaster. He's going to take over Geimiedefher the Khordaldrum Cleric.

I haven't checked, but I think I already uploaded him to the first page of Q/A. Very possible

also, Kaelyn: let's try your duskblade and see how it works out. I suppose giving it a try doesn't hurt.

Topic: The Chakran Portal - Q/A
Subject: duskblade

Kaelyn, where do I find the Duskblade class? In which book?
The reason I ask is because I think that +5 att bonus AND spells AND armor AND good saves is very powerful. Plus you have high stats like most of my other players. Stats are not the main problem, since I can make my enemies with the same high scores, but I think you don't really need such a powerful charry to enjoy and survive my game.
A warmage or battlemage from the Miniatures handbook (and others) is much more balanced I think. Perhaps you can look into that?

I want my players to have a great character to play with, but this goes a little far.

Stats = roll 4d6 and drop lowest one. Please reroll, at the time I didn't think stats mattered too much, but now I see that they are quite overpowering.

Money = 9000 GP, from this money you can buy all your equipment, including magical items should you want any. Magical items are picked from the standard list in the DMG

The weapon he is refering to is just spells, touch spells and ranged (touch) spells.

Also, he never picked a familiar. IF you want one, it's yours to pick.

Topic: **Noldaria*Final War**
Subject: hail to the guardian of the ruins

The ride from El Jalnine was a fine one. Vilyamar rode his horse steady, with Elandor sitting in front of him. The kender had chosen the half-elf mainly because poor Rain already had to bear the large bulk that was Scourge. But now he started appreciating the elven blood in the monk, that seemed to calm his actions and thus his riding.

Nearly two hours later they arrived at a stone wall, covered in thorny tentacles that had dried up in the baking heat of decades. From what Elandor had learned from the map and the instructions of Captain Hurger, beyond this wall lay a path that would lead them into the ruins. He jumped from the horse and started towards path in the distance. Suddenly he sprang aside, and rolled away from the wall. Somebody had addressed him unexpectedly, and it hadn’t been one of his companions.

Atop the wall sat a lone owl, a dark shape against the half moon. Its round eyes peered at the kender. Elandor got up and brushed the dirt from his vest.

“Who? I’m Elandor Underhood, dear guardian of the Ruined Kal Ajin. I ask permission to investigate your grounds for intruders that don’t belong there.”

He took a nut from one of his pouches and flicked it at the animal. Then he turned around to face his companions.

“I say we sneak around the ruins first. I will go first, since I am smaller and a shadow friend.” He looked at Vilyamar. “Perhaps you can find a higher ground for a better overview of the building. And Scourge, perhaps Orion can fly over the ruins while you cast one of your incredible spells? We should meet up in about fifteen minutes at this location. How does that sound?”
