happy couple or not so happy couple: Lee,Jonny,Kyria

DM: sinthija
players: Jonny, Lee, Kyria

Jonny and Kyria get popped into the room that they were just in with the slime but no one is there Jonny feels awkward talking to Kyria but figures there’s a chance to get to know her. After having a conversation about their families and about their history they hear a pop and the light in the small room where they got popped in goes out. A strong female voice calls out in a Texas accent “roll call!”. Jonny quickly gets up and moves away from Kyria but doesn’t answer Lee’s call.

Lee, unable to see in the dark, sparks a torch and Jonny then says “are you going to come out of the room or not?” Lee exit what she views as the teleport room and asks "why did you not reply to the role call? and jonny snarkily says “because i did not feel like it your not the boss of me”. Surprised at the animosity, Lee just blew it off the first time and said look its just the two of us and then jonny says no there is one more.

Lee looking around then sees kyria sitting there and says hi. Jonny does not look lee in the eye so she is starting to get worried that there is something wrong with jonny. Lee then asks jonny whats wrong jonny just blows it off and says he is fine. jonny opens the next door and 3 stirges flew out 1 missed kyria and jonny the other stuck onto lee’s neck after fighting that one another stricks onto kyria jonny and lee finally get the one off of her and move towards kyria lee shouting dont attack jonny than pours a potion down her throat.

finally after getting the one off of kyria we all thought it was over but as lee and jonny are kissing jonny gets attacked and it sticks to his neck. lee than attacks then creature when kyria stands away and jonny attacks it after attacking it for a little while jonny than cuts his shoulder lee tells jonny to stop swinging the sward at her. kyria joins in to help after a while with a couple more hits the creature is dead and falls off jonny. lee than says “do i get to shove a potion down your throat now” getting the reply of “no i am fine” walking to the next door jonny and kyria notice that there is another door from the room that the weird bug things came out of

Jonny than sends kyria to go and check it out. jonny and lee wait at the next door. Lee than says "why aren’t you opening the door??? with the reply of kyria is checking another door. when kyria gets back we than open the next door in side that door there was floating ghost with a black staff in the middle floating. joking around jonny told lee to go into the room so she does.

jonny grabs her arm and trys to pull her out but she swings her arm away all the ghost heads turn towards use jonny pulls lee out and says why wold you risk your life for me. In a pissed off tone Lee says “do i even have to answer that” jonny than passes the monster manual to lee to check up on Ghosts and she reads it out loud in her strong Texas accent throwing in a few comments and questions as she does so. “What’s a THAC0?” “Armor class 0 , Armor Class 8 – what’s better..?” but discovers that yes – turning should work on a ghost. now knowing what these creatures are jonny goes in and try’s to turn them but it does not work so he just grabs the staff and the ghosts smile and fade away. jonny does a detect magic and he can tell that the magic is necromantic and adjuration. Jonny knowing what this is does not tell Lee the type of magic.

Adric and Maddison

story continues off of what had occurred in the pbem – Adric and Maddison quarrel about her owing him (his estate) for the purchase the Non-Detection Amulet needed to avoid Natass.

Maddison kept changing the subject to divert the need to sign any formal agreement. Eventually she commented that she likely had most of the funds needed back at her room in her former guild (in Deerport). So Adric comes up with the idea to disguise Maddison in order to go there and fetch it. Considered doing a Polymorph Other but decided against it. Used Seeming to change her appearance to that of a buxom, comely maid.
(1 days horse ride to Deerport, then spell)

At the guild, Spike not there, Adric and disguised Maddison, spoke to Spike’s wife and ‘politely requested’ the return of Maddison’s monies. After some directed threats (and reminders from Maddison to address Lord Adric properly ‘yes Sire’), the woman complied.

Afterwards, as agreed Adric took disguised Maddison to a bar to have a drink. He was thinking all was settled, and was making plans in his mind of how else Maddision could pay off her debt through quests, when she got irately upset at his refusal to drink anything more stiff than a wine. Things got worse between them and the evening ended with Maddison threatening to expose Adric to Quility and / or his sister. He thinks her threats are just a manipulation and lets her go off to cool down. He is on his way back to the keep.

when Adric thinks Maddison ks just blowing off steam she makes her way to the guild. when she gets to the gulid knocking on the door hoping that the bitchy lady does not open he door and her wish came true fiance opens the door asking who i was. maddison replys with “its maddison” he says prove it whats your name i say “maddison also called maddy and goes by swift” girl fiend what happened and they talk on maddison gets to the point and says she needs another horse. fiance than gets her the horse and she leaves. maddison is fully aware of what could happen if this gets out but she is still headed to she lady teneway for about a week horse ride

It's All an Illusion

DM: Kirsten
Characters: Ora Greystone (dwarf), Kyria, Tris

The three were ‘popped’ alone onto a empty path about 50ft from a crossroads. Tris had been at home packing up for adventuring with her husband thus arrived with all her gear. Kyria had been ‘popped’ out of another adventure with Bumble and Sir Francis, and thus also arrived with all her adventuring gear. Unfortunately, young Ora the dwarven miner was at home cooking a rabbit stew and studying her secret talent of magecraft when she was popped out – so she arrived with naught but a pot of stew, a spoon and her spellbook.

While the two rogues met up at the center crossroad, Ora at first hid in the woods, checking out who the other two were. Her interest got piqued when they announced to one another to be ‘professional adventurers’. Ora over the most recent years, had dreamt of adventuring, but had never given in to the desire – it was bad enough that she practiced magic in secret she couldn’t imagine how she would ever be able to hide her talent while adventuring.

Gathering a bit of courage, Ora stepped out of the woods and greeted the others. After introductions were made, the trio of women continued along the road looking for a clear space off the path to set up a tent for the evening dark that was fast approaching.

Tris located a clearing to the south-east and set up her tent. While the others were gathering wood for the fire , Tris noticed a chest situated just behind where she’d pitched the tent. How it got there or what was in it was a mystery but oddly the rogue did not approach it or mention it to others at all for the first while as they made camp or ate.

In the midst of their evening meal of rabbit stew (thanks to Ora) they heard an odd mewling sound that sounded from behind the tent. They followed it to its source and discovered the chest as a group. Tris looked it over for traps and unlocked – all the while pretending to Ora that she wasn’t doing anything thiefish. Inside Tris discovered her kitten, Kyrie found her puppy and Ora a spellbook -not her own (or her grandmothers) but some other book filled with various spells.

It was only after the group was retired to tent for the night and about the sleep that strange noises sounded from outside, large growlie sounds. Ora seeing a large looming shape just outside the back of the tent, made a small fist and attempted to punch it. She succeeded but it was very ineffectual.

In fact, when she exited the tent to see what it was that she attacked – nothing was there. Not even footprints. Distrustful of how that could be, Ora snuck away to cast a spell – Detect Magic, from that she learned that the chest was magical and that there were indeed tracks but only visible through magic – illusionary magic.

Ora tried to convince the others of the creatures attack on the tent but since Ora was the only one to hear it or see the tracks – no one believed her.

It was about this time that each woman began to hear the calls for help from their loved ones. Ora heard her mother calling out for help. Kyria also heard her mother calling to her. Tris heard the cries of her daughter, her eldest child.

Each encounter was slightly different but each met with their loved one who needed them to give up the item or pet that was found in the chest, afterwhich the loved one disappeared. In Ora’s case her mother not only wanted the new spellbook, but her personal one as well. Despite Ora’s uncertain belief that this was all an illusion and some sort of trap, she caved in when it seemed that refusing to give up the book would suffocate her mother.

When the party regrouped by the tent once more Ora was adamant that this was all an Illusion. (game paused)

Tree

DM – Flipspage
Characters – Lee, Star, Stealth, Jonny, Kenji, Nova, Johnny Cade, Zack

Open the trapped door – leads to hallway
Continue north – another door. Hears yawning, Stealth checks it out. A tree. Climbs.. attacked by branch. Jonny followed up tree, also attacked and hit. hung upside down.
Tree talks to Lee and group….

“Halister and I were friends for many years he wanted me to be apart of the under mountain project but when my work was done he had no intention on having me even close to be his partner, I heard rumours of him being like this, after all the work was done. We had a two man celebration for our hard work. I had a drink of whatever it was he had made for me. and then I’m this. I stand in the very spot I stood. I have been here for more than a hundred years, I just want to die but the moisture in the walls and the well deep down beneath me is keeping me alive. I need someone to kill me. This is the only way I’ll be free.

I have been thinking of my life before I was turned into this…
it was not a very nice one…I do want to die"

The wizard-tree wants to die, if not it will end up being used to create unending numbers of orcs. Doesn’t want that. Lee agrees to kill it.
Tree opens up and a tunnel down is followed to where its heart is. Lee says a final farewell and stabs her sword through the trees heart.

Tree transforms back into the mage… a dying “thank-you”
Continue on to the sound of fighting. Zack checks door but is unable to unlock. Stealth also unable to unlock. Lee kicks down the door.

Oddly enough their talking had attracted attention behind the door and a file of 7 orcs were knocked down in domino fashion when Lee kicked open the door.

Lee pulls her sword to defend if the orcs attack but doesn’t make the first move. She instead tries to confirm with the mage if the orcs were ‘real’ orcs or more illusions.

Star, and several others that speak orc, greet the orcs as they scramble back up to their feet. they diffused the aggression and a fight was avoided.

Lee stalked off to the north, upset that the mission – to kill off the creatures down here- was being completely ignored. Why were they here now , if they weren’t going to clear out the maze of rooms and kill monsters?

Upset, Lee opened the final door to the north at the end of the hall, without waiting for the following thieves to check it. But though it was trapped, Lee JUST managed to dodge out of the way of the large log that swung down from the ceiling at her entrance.

Others filed in afterwards (game paused).

Arena - Something smells fishy
Kirsten's first attempt

DM – Riley / Kirsten
Players – Amy, Kirsten, Cynthia, Riley, Vaughn & Adric (camio)
Characters: Noko, Miranda, Gwendolyn, Jonny, Maevelin, Adric Fire, Scumbag Steve, Zack, Stealth, Johnny Cade, DarkShadow

Began off with several characters (Noko, Miranda, Gwendolyn, Jonny, Maevelin, Adric Fire, Scumbag Steve) all being suddenly ‘popped’ into individual rooms. Each room was identical with no door, a single torch and bookshelves lining the four walls. Various magical or reactionary things happened when each party member attempted to investigate their surrounding.

Scumbag’s inspection of the torch resulted in a Kua-toa appearing in his room. He fought with it and called apon his diety Cerebus to accept the Kua-toa in sacrifice -which it surprisingly did – appearing before the startled cleric, snapping at the unfortunate fishman and disappearing but not before granting his faithful with his blessing. (double hitpoints for the scene) and breaking the wall to his cell.

Maevelin had scoured her ‘library cell’ in search of a secret means in or out and for her efforts found a hidden door behind one of the shelves, when she pushed on the door hard, it gave way easily and was dumped 10 feet below into an large circular arena.

Jonny was also visited by his War God when called upon after his attempt to escape resulted in Jonny being trapped behind a wall of light that was shocking. The war god granted him a magical weapon and broke down the wall of light.

Eventually all the ‘prisoners’ escaped or were eventually released into the central arena then came the booming voice, foretelling their doom. Suddenly a lighthouse appeared in the center of the arena and Maevelin led the way to investigate.

At the bottom was an empty room with a single ladder leading up. So up she went. Halfway to the top she noticed a side hallway (which was odd for spatially there should have been no way for the room to exist in the lighthouse) and she left the ladder to check it out. The others followed.

There they saw a casket, which Maevelin opened to reveal what looked to be a wrapped mummy. Seeing nothing of value, she turned around to head back to the ladder when the mummy moved and grabbed her shoulder while at the same time unraveling the bandages at its face.

A scuffle ensued but ended swift and without bloodshed when it was discovered that the mummy was no other than Johnny Cade, an adventuring companion of Jonny’s.

Another doorway appeared off to the side and again Maevelin led the way to check it out. (end of Riley’s DMing)
(Kirsten continued on)

A series of ‘pops’ sounded and the party lost Miranda, Gwen, Noko, and Jonny but gained the thief Zack.

The hallway travelled around to a room that was occupied by …. several Kuo-toa. The smell of them caused several of the party to be physically ill.

When the vomiting stopped, two other doorways suddenly opened but before any could investigate, more popping sounded. Zack and Johnny Cade had disappeared and then the party checked out the side door which revealed a suit of glowing armor covered in rusty brown slime. The Kuo-toa seemed alarmed at their interest in the armor and moved to stand around it protectively.

Their smelly arrival forced the others to make a hasty retreat less the vomiting begin again. With only one other route to take the party exited the room in the direction opposite the way they entered.

This new hallway led to a series of kitchen/dining rooms that seemed to magically change every minute or so. There didn’t seem to be any other exit to the room and Maevelin was getting a bit frustrated. (dinner break)

Again there was a couple ‘pops’ and new arrivals – Stealth, and Jonny. With the arrival of the ‘professional adventurer’, a secret passage into the adjoining rooms were found. But even this didn’t aid in the party achieving anything until the party came upon a library.

A study of the books, had Maevelin discovering a book of traps and secret doors. Interested she pulled out the book – a map of this very library fell out and a secret door was marked on the map. A quick study of the book and map informed the anti-paladin that they needed to find another book titled “First Level Spells” in order to trigger the secret door.

The book was found on another shelf to the left and when pulled, all other bookshelves collapse leaving just that one standing. Frustrated Maevelin attempt to topple the shelf on her own but required the help of Jonny to do so. A faint door outline was seen.

Stealth then proceeded to ’unlock’’ and open the secret door. Inside was… ‘Stealth’.

The real Stealth groaned at the sight of the doppleganger and mentally vowed to make Johnny Cade pay next time she saw him.

Both Stealths claimed the other was false and tried their hardest to convince this to Jonny. Jonny in order to determine who was who.. tried to glean information from Stealth and ‘Stealth’. Both seemed to share information/memories from Undermountain but not from before, so to prove her identity Stealth gave up her name ‘Cadelle’ to Jonny when the two were alone in secret room after Maevelin and the other Stealth were popped out into the library room.

Jonny vaguely recognized the name and Cadelle was quick to assume he’d heard her name associated with her being wanted for questioning in the attempted murder of Lady Teneway of the Darkskies, a few years back. She assured Jonny that she was changed and that would never happen again. Jonny seemed clueless as to what she was talking about but went along with it.

Meanwhile, in the library, Maevelin and ‘Stealth’ appeared along with Johnny Cade and Zack once more. When Zack greeted the unknown doppleganger with a smile and a ‘Hi". It returned the greeting with a “Hey babe” and instantly Zack knew that she wasn’t the real Stealth and attacked it. He got one good hit in before darkness filled the room and the creature disappeared with a pop. The door to the secret room locked shut and a booming voiced sounded. (?)

So armed with the knowledge that she was the original Stealth turned to head back to the library when the door locked shut.
