Blue Metal
Adamantium
Angel-Forged
Hell-Forged
Hell-Forged
Sea-touched rot/wrought
Fey Steel
Fey Unknown (Green Copper from Feywild?)

The Mithral is currently in the forge, surrounded by runes. They are dwarven. The thing is bench-like, with a sunken part at the center. The rest goes to a blazing forge. There’s more but I lost the notes :(

The Dark Blue Metal is 400 lbs.

Notes: Reference to ‘The Deeper Wells’, ‘Sleeping’, ‘Chipped off of something’, like it was taken from multiple places and then forged together, talks about radiation.

Fairly recent, some of this is old. Someone is speaking a really old language. What it was written with or on. The vellum was ? before it was vellum.

We take the notes.

Lil Miss tries to lay the the Angel-Forged to rest. It no work, trying to run on fumes in power source.

It cries and weeps. Orianna puts it in her bag, by itself.

As we walk, suddenly Orianna’s other bag splits and the blue metal falls out. The bag is no longer enchanted, It seems aged, corroded. Shinji kind of recognizes it, but the wrong context.

Sniff assisting. Assnifting!

Lil Miss is nomming stuff in the forge storage area where he got samples from various things to get these ingots. Room is the size of Costco.

Suit of demon hell-forged armor
lance of devil hell-forged
angel polearm.

When enchantment went poof, corroded away the thing it was part of.

Religious-created guardians, bound to a god.

Construct with Tiamat Armor, One for Bahamut, One for Kord, One Corellon. All wearing dawnforged armor and weapons. He has written derogatory remarks on all of them. They sense Orianna and Lil Miss. He probably forged these- sloppy forging.

David balances things

David takes balance aspect after some fiddling with kewords, he can apparently become undead dead, or living reborn

Resurrects gryphon, but its a bit more gryphon like per his mental image of gryphons.
Other gryphons are more even tempered.
Wilbell back to normal but grew taller.

Sango mostly fixed but still able to fiddle with spirits body. Needs to punch someone to test it.

David has to get a guardian for the temple. Pixie imbued with power would be a really really good guardian.

Verinal

Sense sees ‘light’ that bounces of runes, closer to the right thing but both gained and lost ground.

Verinal starts thinking about/focusing on his current life and how he came back recently. How he is dead and undead and dead again?

When he tries to think about his first life, he gets a sense of fire and life and flames.

In the first dawn war there were 3 dieties and 5 elements.

The high seraph was the first one with death domain.

Ravaanos and death.

Firestar and life.

and Ao.

He can sense phoenix. Every true phoenix in this d&d realm can teleport to or teleport it to him. Phoenixes have never died, only been born and born again.

Switches to ‘living and reborn’. He notices a ringing sound to some extent. Balance is everywhere. Orb is what who and what Zodiarch. The whole thing is balanced against it, and not.

Verinal claims it. A lock clicks. Life, death, balance all interlink, become basically a single domain. They are more separate now than they were before, though he has them. Zodiarch is still Zodiarch in the center area. Zodiarch started with balance, then reigned in the other two. HE was a sys-admin but now he does have the depth anymore? He doesn’t have the balancing act anymore/a lot of that wisdom is gone. Zodiarch seems tired, worn. Angels stopped crying.

Sango:
Chain at the middle is twisted at 45 degrees to awk-ward

Exploring the temple: Verinal walks down a hall to an area that is not broken. He walks through a membrane of religious energy. Verinal passes through. Rest of party goes back, don’t pass it.

Not a lot of traffic in this area. Sees two sets of footprints, one set bigger than the other. Smaller feet are 5’ 6" range of person, larger set over 6’. Continuing down, the stone just stops, and continuing on is just earth/soil. The tracks continue onward. Male and female. Suddenly branches out into a ‘small’ room, rocky area with some trees and a line of tombstones. Each of the tombstones has an emblem. 13 are marked, the 14th is blank. Each one also seems to have a something written underneath. More like obelisks, glassy.

The steps walk through the gravestones to a church with the mark of Zodiarch on them. The doors open at his touch, there’s a stone thing/altar with markings- to what god? He wonders.

In the far end there is a stained glass. When he tries to focus on what’s behind it, it’s wavy and can’t tell/hard to look properly.

The two people are there. They seem mostly faded away. (She’s more jagged?)

Life and death, building and/or altar is a third aspect. Warmth/human look and cold analytical aspect to look at things/keep balance.

Zodiarch may have betrayed things/ he gave the ideas that helped lead to mortals.

Even Evening Glory isn’t watching in here.

He spends more time with the obelisks. These are true names/concepts that represent that god. Could probably think of a bring forth a bit/some of a summon of their power. Underneath is Zodiarch’s impression of them/thought of them/ what they were to him.

He also finds a fountain. Representation of Firestar. There is also possibly a studying area where even Zodiarch studied.

Behind the church are a bunch of shallow graves.
1. Crumbly
2. Parched
3. Heat, smoldering
4. dried out but cold
5. etc.

one in the far corner with a metal spike driven into it, gnarled and rusted. Someone is in it with only a dusting to cover. Gets a sense of concussive force.

Primordial types.

4th side of the church: bench, cliffside, view off into a variety of beautiful views. Starry atop, water, fjord, etc. Place of relaxation.

As he walks around to the front of the temple again. Something hits him. A chip- metal, stone, crystallized metal? Reality warps a bit as he looks around/ foreign mental impression that changes the perception of things. Gets a mental picture of Zodiarch in one of his forms made of this material. He’s in the corpse of Zodiarch. Sensing true thoughts, feelings of him.

As he preps, if feels like the essence of Zodiarch is helping a bit to do this. It’s easier to do this here because he’s inside of a god. What he’s trying to do, gods are already partway there. So using the god as a material component helps to achieve this. So the other locations are likely to be dead gods, TRULY dead gods.

He meditates, trying to remember all the motions. When the moment is as close as he can to Solstice, he steps through the doors. He rolls a 1.

Gets impressions of revenant vampire partway through the Kingdom (still Kingdom). Started out human. Became a vampire. Would then ‘reincarnate’ to more powerful fey as he moved up. Their worship had to do with ancestral worship. Great heroes were worshipped as minor deities. They achieved ranks higher than Archfey. Transmutate into different type of fey. Archfey is 6, THE Archfey is 4.

Paid token reverence to the deity of the cycle. Character made it to upper hierarchy, but he isn’t getting clear images from later onward. This guy was on a mission involving time and the gods. They were dumping all their ancestral power behind this to work on this. The gods were weak. Then the Fall, the Time of Troubles, and the died during the Something. Died youngish at 1400 in this disaster.

Love and Tolerating people to pieces! He achieved beyond Archfey. He confused people and made them all super nervous.

Percentage goes up by 12 for David.

Balance snaps in and it’s time for choices:

1. Life: Civil: Impression of an area, a flower garden, a walkway, a vegetable garden. Social way, organization, through physical things. Clan’s emblem embedded in the stones of the walkway.
2. Balance: Serene: Sense of stillness, a calm pool in a meditative garden. Socially structured but quiet place. Internal thing that reduces conflict with others.
3. Death: Emotion: Interacting with people, saying just the right thing, how people interact, why they interact, why they begin and end. Stopping conflict, stopping peace. Stopping unhappiness. Intuitive, insightful ability.
4. Life: Marshal Unity: A variety of small effects that add up to something large. Taking advantage of small openings that your allies give you adding up to advantages for you.
5.Balance: Gamer’s Mind: In timed things and tense moments, removing elements that factors that would cloud. Basically, could make snap judgements with this. Time slows for him and he can assess info more ‘normally’.
6. Death: Death by Koala. From physical to mental, like dreamscapes. Attack mental situations on opponents. Someone’s mental endurance- able to make mental attacks of people. Psy-ops campaign on steroids.

Birdy nooooooo!

Fly towards temple
there seem to be giant runes spiraling to the temple

get chased by oni with his group, one of them is a warforged druid
its really tough
we hit a barrier that excludes anyone who is not divine

one of the rime fire gryphons dies.
its soul is hagning around as a canary

once we get to the temple the mollases feeling for normal people goes away
david feels a presence even stronger.

the temple is in ruins, rukia overhears shiva and henrietta talking on god radio describing a meeting with her pantheon.
remembers a description of zodiak as grey metallic stone as being parts of the god zodiac
the layout seems to be something anatomical but in sets of 3

some people hear quiet weeping and as we step out standing around a floating sphere are 3 figures crying.
In the corners of the room there are 4 golden figures in leather armor. They are grey golden covered.
From behind the sphere step two large humanound figures with scythes and big fluffy wings.
they point at the party.

August 27th, 2016 Hannah Notes

The temple is like 4-8 miles in radius. Far at the center is the pool and the ‘temple’.

6 points that start moving inward. Two larger figures drop down. There is a single one on top of the temple drawn down by the two other figures. Hairline sized runes, 80 feet across for each, circling in.

This one is something to do with ‘sigil’, the ‘judgment’

intersects at a 90 degree angle

War barge being pulled by warforged druid. Has bear and oni?

Chant holds meetings.

hannah pokes spectral armor.
its an armor concept
literally the ghost of armor
turns it into armor concept energy worth 37k armor.
this will need research between me and hannah.
light armor qualifications ask about.

go to zak and armor things happen. No more armor. :(
ask questions

check the stuff on iouna, apparently she has soul forged equipment
made using body parts of the dragon itself and hannah
pulls out oa stone box with a symbol, its a dwarven chamber pot
it has the arm of a death knight
hes been studying it
its empoweree by orcus and nerul.
armor propeties seem to depend on the person.
zak suddenly gets an idea, goes digging in a fancy supernal book
trying to soulforge olavian would be hard and have interesting again.
he does some science on olavian, he blows up a small jelatious cube.
gnome automated forge and fancy blacksmith.

quick check on self
I am something like a wizard type ritual that creates half elementals
Take 150% and make it 100%
May need to take a look at some sort necromacy having to do with soul magic for damange
Have undergone several purification style rituals but not really, they abstractly similar
Soul seems to possilby be scarred but hard to tell.
Still some spiritual soul damange but will heal over time, but better to actively heal.
Currenly likely vulnerable to spirit magic, do not touch dream rings. Effects seem similar to that one time altering self in the dream world

get a realisation fo what is going on, get a more farseeing, i no longer have to center on myself
can now scry ising pattern sight
get a daily chage a die roll after roll once per day sort of. +/- 5
modification daily power
power : daily effect that adds or subtracts a 3 to ANY die type roll, after the number.
it modifies the die itelf for the attack
EX this would affect dice for town resource
EX would affect percentile
works better in conjuction with the main daily power:

it modifes results of the daily power.
allows modification of any number in the game, including number of targets, burst size.
and makes results retroactive

magniture: declare a die to be a number but modified by my passice or encounter.
-have to use pattern check to switch

passive power: switch a bard power at a moments notice as long as I pass a taveren check for one use
switching out of class is harder at disadvantage with penalty on top
also could go up in level but at another penalty.
push to permanent switch

can scry the pattern not the world. works like a scry but not a scry.

Pattern Farsight: Can change focus of pattern observation. Still limited to threads I have interacted with, affected by degree of interaction. The greater the impact of interaction the easier it is. Can be used to observe threads that have interacted with threads I have interacted with, but each step away gets more dificult. (31)
Daily Power: Change an attack roll, skill check, or ability check by +/- 5 after die has been rolled. This recharges based on major story events.

Modification Daily Power Options
Can be swapped between by using a taveren power check.
Power: +/- 3 to any die roll after result is known.
modifies the die itself
Examples: town resource roll, percentile roll, damage roll
Augment: Spend +/-5 daily power

EX: Number of targets, burst size
Magnitude: Declare a die to be a specific number accounting for the passive taveren effect for attacks, skill checks and ability checks.
Augment: Spend +/- 3 encounter power
Declare a +/-3 to the actual die value of the selected die. Power is retroactive until the next action is started.

Passive Power: Make a taveren check to swap any currently available power for another power. Selecting bard powers is easiest. Selecting powers from classes for which you currenlty have powers is possible at a penalty. Selecting powers from any class is possible at a high penalty. Replacing powers with higher level ones is also possible at a high penalty. Power swap can be temporaty or permanent with permanent selection being more difficult. Power selection can be done during a long rest at a bonus.

8-14-2016 Hannah's Notes

We take a rest. It’s only 6 hours from dusk to dawn. The dawn comes early.

The power: Glowy field with black halo looks. Gold-tanish halos (old fashion halo, radiating). Possibly a deity’s thumbprint on the area? There is no arcane crap of time going on. However, death-life is out of whack, and those are messing with things. Emblem within? (two halos, one on top of the other)

Rukia: WHY ARE YOU AWAKE YET. And it winks at me. This thing is cheeky. Fight between life and death is going on, and two are fighting for the ‘sky’ part of this area. One is ‘sun’, the other is moon…blood moon..something like that? There’s an active divine section. A sense of age.

We perception. Verinal notices that a sparkly blue explosion go off- there’s a battle going on. Bones flying/ flying body rocketing up.

It’s a crow-headed tengu (not a man-headed tengu).

We sneak by this.

When we get to the spiral too quickly, a few people fail and take necrotic. Sango fails badly on con check- she loses the gills she woke up with. Now she’s breathing only when she remembers to do so.

Rukia smacks with her beads and black fabric, and knocks Sango out of her body. There’s spirit Sango and her body go splat. Everyone else freaks out. The chain attached to her body is seperate to her spirit’s chain. There’s a spirit link missing. Normally when chains are seperated/severed, they start eating each other and become hallowed in minutes.

Temple:

Identical but opposite colors.

David rolls a 1 on con check, and then another 1. The DM rolled a 20 on…something? Verinal’s vision blurs into colors and tastes.

He swells, his arms popping out blue crystals in concentric circles and tribal-tattoo like, and then the red crystals shoot out, fighting it.

He has an urge to run into the temple center like before, and does so. He can sense living creatures within 30 ? of each temple. He can also sense overlapping?

The area between the two temples stretch to exactly 30 miles, and in the center he feels a swell of neutral energy.

Every deity in the area is now immediately aware of Verinal’s presence.

The Morrigan
Desert God
Twin Raven and the Woad Look
Off to one side of the arena, looking on- Evening Glory. Fanbearer is shadowy elf/half-elf
Same thing from the Raven Queen. Standing in front of her though, is standing a few minions including a very shadowy elf/half-elf
Tan Halo God. Old wizened man in a robe. Carrying a hourglass- Chronos

Looking down into the court, there is a body laid to rest. They feel like Shiva- same pantheon? Getting several glimpses, might be 3-4. An overarching deity in charge of the three, and two-three original heirs.

The Seraphim- one of the original heirs.

Overaching one: Zodiac (what Verinal knows it by)

Blue gem on arm, with white bands on one arm. Red gem in dark obsidian band in his other wrist in place of his viens.

He has the two prizes in his hands.

Lolz

We manage to get an extended rest
david has 20% loss of husks
sanjo now has gills and is breathing acid.
and then she does not
suges are doubled until next short rest, except for david he’s screwed. Quarter surge.

sango really badly fails endurance check, SHE IS FINE! and only breathing when needs to talk.
soul body connection seems to be damaged

david goes into the death temple and things happen.
gets awareness of all living within 30 miles of the temples.
then the temples seem to move 30 miles aparant and there is neutral evengy right in between then.

turns out we are in the middle of a battle betwwen a bunch of dieties trying to lay claim to the life/death/netural domains.

david declares for himself, then the party run like hell.
he is now a demigod.
we all book it to the balance area using divine boons that david gives the griphosn.

June 30th Notes (Hannah's Notes)
Well, We Won't Die of Fire

When we last left off with Oriana’s team, they’d manage to figure out the giant doom hill monster was actually…just a hill. With a hobbit hole. Maybe we should go in before all the treants try and kill us.

And so the party got inside. Oriana and Philia were able to work on cleaning their armor (they got SCRUBBY clean). Everyone in general felt very comfortable. Toooooo comfortable. Asuka ate the food out of the oven. Shinji read. Other kicked back and relaxed.

The group did find a door. At one point, Asuka checked it out. It went down a staircase. And down. And dooooown. But it was super fast to go back. Asuka deemed it weird and went to get Shinji. There were rabbit negotiations.

Shinji saw that the wood had leaves and vines and such. The wood was magical and old- all the carving and the wood’s ways were filled with runes. The whole place has a psychic effect of calm, peace. Shinji and Asuka disagreed on the type of wood, since this all seemed to be made of the same kind of wood. Oak? Not oak? A very old oak?

Lil Miss makes a psionic check? To check the scrollwork and identifying the wood of the door and etc.

No metal in any of this house, basically. Lil Miss recognizes the ‘enchantment’/ psychic effect as something the druid in town used in order for better resting. Basically this has been turned against its natural use and instead into a hinderance.

Shinji managed to get a sliver off for Lil Miss, who sampled it. She recognizes it from eating a little at Zak’s. Living wood. We think this is all made from a single tree, an ancient tree folk/ent.

Asuka Tree story: Heard it from Squirrel. An enemy
The cauldron of its birth. There were several enemies there. A giant tree moved in, pulling up the energy of the area. It became a leader of all the other trees in the area. Time passed. Touched by the Great One and turned to stone. The trees split into two factions. It is your duty, young squire is to fight the enemies of the Great One so that the great one may become the _______________________

We check out the door and go inside. Realize it has a bag of holding-like effect. Asuka decided to check the fireplace instead because this is dumb.We check the fireplace. It’s not a fireplace! Follow the tunnels that this came out into- basically coming out of a cylinder that is the ‘bag’ effect.

Uh. The hallways are on fire. That’s fine. Let’s continue.

EVERYTHING IS NOT FINE.
Barrelling down at full speed, everything is on fire! It keeps getting hotter, and harder to see!

Larger bright coil down below us as we come out into large chamber. Lil Miss is glowing and now falling like a comet. Uhm.
(Little Miss gained Aspect of Fire when she basically crit her saving throw in here, and started glowing)

Oriana crits when bloodied.

Her eyes are embers, her skin is a jeweled red color, she gains elemental/primordial (‘you are considered a primordial’ )
Do not fumble with dawn war sword.
Has her make a saving throw.
3 natural crits, and 1 lil miss crit. WE ARE FIRE TEAM. WE ARE TEAM VALOR.

Basically we’re all glowing now.

Oriana:
Can have lay on hands can replace heal amount with fire resistance.

Chant has a flash of this bullshit. He thinks he can twist this to make it go more like how the pattern wanted. Shinji is the only one about to fail in this glow cloud of people healing from fire. Chant does it.

We all look like deathwing from warcraft.
CHANT ROLLS 42 and also starts to glow.
Chant is now more firetree for a bit.

Down below, as Lil Miss falls like a stone, there is a Tyranid-like presence that thinks at people and makes them go boom.

Aaron says this is the hammer of the fire elemental?

Xenothrope

Lil Miss xenothrope check: three rounds will work. She bounces off of nothing and flies through the air like a rocket back up to us, we all GTFO.
We end up in a fireplace. Smelting/blacksmith like chamber.

The entire corridor we’ve been flying down was compressed space. Multiple miles and miles down underneath. Arcane pushing it like that.

Dammit why is this Doom.
(The DM says you can learn to run Shadyvale with Argent Energy(Primal Argent) )

We all yell NOOO in response.

View
staring at dragon

13 partial fates and possibilities. Not all of them died.
Only actually needed 12 sacrifices.

The prophecy meant 12, the slang was interpreted as 13.

Normally objects don’t appear in the pattern. (13 powerful in the pattern people)

We are a braided rope, stitched together.

Ridiculous, never seen before: Neither thread will go as long as the other goes.

Teveryn +4

Fundamental essence of the pattern. 13 shards of teveryn, surrounding a 14th that’s sort of like a teveryn.

Pattern, looking through: oh, that’s broken! :grabs and fixes:

‘effectively out space and time’

match what?

Pattern pouts ‘it doesn’t match’

Sensation “oh, that’s how that works!” “oh, I need balance” “I need to adjust things”

All around there’s a a thunder and energy. Chant’s thread is being torn.

Chant’s perception goes up by 4. Something feels like it lost. But open. There are snarls.

Pick someone. Feel like there should be another pair. Feels like he should know one.

‘two who are one’ theme.
