The Black Magic Revolution

The Prophecy

The dark lord will rise again at the end of the 303 year long drought.

The ten horns of apocalypse plus the hearts they contain mark doom for all.

He shall seek to devour a god, but the other nine remain to protect the one.

All but the castle will crumble and all magic will be lost to man as the dark lord consumes the world.

The first horn will signal for his followers to amass, yet wait for the opportune moment.

Those who control the flow of magic will weed the garden of budding stars.

One with a similar name of the holy land will rise to start the combat.

Each death grants him power, but champions will rise from the ashes of old heroes and villains past.

The second horn will beckon for the invasion to begin, and the other horns will quickly follow.

A gift will be received, a leader must fall, and together they will reveal a path to an enemy true.

Nine from the table will light the way, but nine will not remain upon the end.

The tenth and final horn wails over defeat.

Bag of Holding
All the things

So I had an Idea, we use Tezzim’s old Bag of holding as a repository for all the things we pick up but don’t use.

So i’m going to make a wiki page or something to hold all the loot that’s just floating around and keep it all there for reference. Then when we get to a point where we can sell all the excess gear we can just split the gold between everyone.

Loot Page

This Particular Sheet also has a thing for tracking Debts, be it player to player or player to party. We might want to use that if we come across another situation where someone is spending a bunch of personal resources for the group, like say paying for a whole airship or part of and airship.

Flight and Fall

After stocking up at the cleric hermit’s hut, the party set out, attempting to fly towards a port town to flee to Trav since a sea faring ship will travel much faster than the King’s personal escape ship that was not meant for long distances.

The airship was attacked by a hungry chimera en route, but the party quickly dealt with hit, albeit with Theory and Brooke’s companion suffering a little frostbite from the dragon head’s breath. They skinned the body and used their survival skills to preserve the meat to last for 4 days, but there was only enough meat to last 2 days with the amount of people with them. This was including those dubbed as freaks who don’t need to eat due to their magical rings.

A few hours later, Brooke decided to head off to sleep. Aiden Heyes wanted to re-bond to his Prism Glasses, so he asked for her help with one of her spells. Brooke refused and they argued for a while over this. Theory attempted to have Yuka Nishimura intervene and force Brooke to help Aiden, but she refused, stating that if she helps now, then she will always have to step in and their relationship will never improve.

In the end, Aiden failed to convince Brooke to help him, so he attempted to bond to the glasses by himself. Unfortunately, the ritual failed, and his sight was stolen from him. Adhria offered to help him with his blindness, but could only prepare the magic to fix the predicament the next day. Aiden asked someone to guide him below deck, which Yuka volunteered to do, since she felt party at fault because she could have easily had Brooke cast the spell on him. Aegineas Andalfin pointed out that there would never have been a problem had no one tried to use black magic to begin with. Adhira put the little Kobold down to nap time as he seemed cranky.

To the party’s dismay, Adhria and Theory later noticed some specs on the horizon, which Adhria figured out to be the Elves chasing after them. Aiden used math to deduct that they had 7 hours before they caught up, not nearly enough time for them to make it to port. They had the option to speed up their ship, but the only person who could do that safely was now blind.

Instead of risking blowing up, the party devised a way for them to bail from the ship while keeping it in flight, with everyone arriving safely on the ground 500 feet below. They decided to back track to a small town in order to purchase horses and more supplies, otherwise they risk allowing their enemies too much time to prepare for their arrival.

During the night, the party left setting up camp to the person who had always done it in the past, which was Aiden. After ten minutes of watching him awkwardly set up a tent in a pentagon shape, the party finally decided to let him sit out this one and did the work themselves. Aiden got to spend the night with Yuka, Brooke and Theory slept alone, while everyone else spent the night under the pavilion. Aiden heard something troubling from Yuka during the night, but decided to bring it up with her the next day since she had already fallen asleep.

The next morning, Adhria cured Aiden’s blindness and he managed to de-bond to the Prism Glasses so he could have another try later. After four more hours of travel, the party arrived at the small town, but they were not received well. In this elven town, they had brought in a smelly, unconscious dwarf, a half-blood, a kobold and a halfling, quickly garnering mistrust by those in the town. They decided to conduct their business fast and not stick around long, not wanting to get the town caught up in conflict for helping them escape.

The stable hand was hesitant to sell to the party, especially since they claimed that the kobold was the elven king. Before they got into an argument, Suum Andalfin took off his helmet, revealing who he actually is and said that payment will be sent to their town at a later date, with compensation. Having no reason to refuse someone who is clearly royalty, the party aquired enough mounts and food to make it to the port in a few days travel time.

That night after setting up camp, the party was once again visited in the middle of the night. At the time, Adhria and Theory were on watch and found some centaurs heading their way with a clear intent to harm them. Behind them, they could see humans and elves in chains, suggesting that the centaurs were slave traders. The centaurs have not yet noticed that the two are awake, giving them some time to decide their course of action…

Vault the Sky
Of Kobolds and Kings

The party descended from the Queens chambers after learning that she had been kill approximately 100 years ago and the woman who lay in her place was merely an imposter. The Prince was beside himself in grief and had to be carried and coerced into moving.

After retrieving Bjorn the party moved to the royal vault in an attempt to loot it before fleeing. Unfortunately they were thwarted by the second door triggering an alarm. The party made haste to the extraction point.

The party passed through the hidden door to the kings airship. There were signs of struggle but the door had been re-sealed. After passing the doors test the party advanced down the tunnel and came to another closed door, after checking it with a mirror and seeing bodies the party entered the room.

What they saw was carnage. The entirety of the escaped royal family was dead the only surviving ally was the ‘maid’ who was heavily injured but a great distance away from the remaining assailants.

Combat started. A wind was was erected negating , Aiden attempted to swiftly slay Oaken only to have his attack rebound back at him killing himself instantly. Vilki decided that it would be a good idea to leave the safety of the wind wall and was instantly mowed down by a hail of arrows. Enranged by this Yuka charged and killed Dalamiir in a single blow. While Theory and Brooke continued to press Oaaked wounding him greatly. As Oaken was heavily injured and was extracted by Caen.

After Yuka’s rampage the remaining party cleaned up the remaining foes.

The party moved quicky recovering the bodies of Havyeana (who was missing both arms), Orphantos, AIden (who was nearly bisected) and, Tolgeass. The Kings body was too horribly mutilated to be salvageable as was Felicia’s who seemed to have lost her head. Gweththeniadhria harvested a blood sample from each as well as one of Havyeana’s arms.

Once on the airship she stitched the corpses together as best she could and preserved them with gentle repose in case of complications with the raising.

Arriving at the grove of the cleric the party set to work revoking their cargo from deaths embrace. Aiden, Vilki, Tolgeass and, Havyeana were rasied from the dead. While Gweth reincarnated the King and Felicia as a Kobold and Halfling respectively.

After Aiden was brought back he went outside to see Yuka who promptly punched him hard enough to kill ( ಠ_ಠ ), luckily Aiden was just knocked unconscious. Yuka immediately demanded that someone heal Aiden. As he regained consciousness he was tackled by Yuka and the made out.

Updated Recap

The Party left the dungeon but found that the elves had not taken kindly to the duping of blood signatures on the documents. They were brought back to Kavill and were questioned on this, after some discussion the party turned over the Deck of Wind to the Tiig Captain. They decided not to pursue the issue any further and left it at that albeit more than a little disgruntled.

Leaving the disgruntled elves behind the party headed to Avalaan home of Aiden , the trip was mostly uneventful save for a chance encounter with a Titanic Centipede. Oh and the rabbit… RIP.

Once in Avalaan Brooke and Tezzim went about acquiring a better airship engine, after some haggling they managed to get a more modern Airship crystal (and an industrial strength one at that) for a bargain. Meanwhile Aiden returned home to visit his family, he was unknowingly pursued by the party.

Once the Party finished their business in the city they departed for Ivintaly, they made it in excellent time thanks to their new engine. After some confusion with where exactly they were supposed to park and a VERY interesting encounter involving crucifixion and poles up certain peoples posteriors the party found their way to the embassy where they had permission to reside. Aiden and, Bjorn went to the Inn called ‘Elvish Paradise’ looking for Yuka and co. Upon arriving there however Aiden deduced that it would take Yuka’s party at least 2 more days to get to the city assuming they had not detoured. Upon realizing this the party decided to sit tight until Yuka so they could plan their next move. The party did some shopping and crafting in this time among other activities Including : Bjorn scarring Aiden for life with his dwarfish swimsuit antics (hint Dwarves do have swimsuits); Brooke making friends with the maids, Pyria in particular; Tezim spent his days painting the inside of the airship while getting drunk and, high off of various alchemical concoctions; Aiden also returned the painting the party found to it’s rightful owners, they were grateful but not overtly enthused.

Yuka arrived on Schedule and, also had new company a bard and spy who went by the name of Gellius Ambroise. Vilki was rather cross with a certain peeping dwarf and, even more cross at Aiden for not revealing the second portion of her orders which included starting to build diplomatic relations with the nobility. With that Aiden, Yuka, Bjorn, Jimmy and, Vilki going off to the different elvish noble houses in order to build relations. Bjorn went to speak with the Tiigs. Aiden went to a local tournament in which the elvish noble, Oakin Eagiss was allegedly in attendance. Brooke and Tezim boded with their time at the embassy also decided to go to the tournament, still oblivious to Yuka’s return. Aiden fought in the tournament making it to the final round in which Brooke and himself bet a large sum of money on a 10:1 upset victory for Aiden. Aiden managed to win against the Challenger a general in the elvish armies. The venue could not afford to pay out all of the money and Aiden and Brook had to reach a compromise. The elvish noble seemed impressed with Aidens victory despite Aiden’s profuse apologies to incapacitating his general.

By nightfall everyone returned to the embassy and sleeping arrangements were tenuously formed.
