Kaz steals a puppy

Mummy rot issues. Some people contract mummy rot.
Some people also have DMR curse thingy.

Mummy rot: mitch, shinji, chant
a

Hannah takes rubbing of the mummy image projection pillar.
The pillar is making weird noise. Does have a direction but too close to the antenna where the direction is.
We are in a directed beam destination that is then spreading the signal out.
There is also a second staticy source of power that is weak and is around the party.
Hannah is the second repeater.
Chant is making static with a deadzone.
The power type is Faith.

Hannah tries tracing the beam. Goes far, somewhere of the underdark. Goes through an art, stained glass window.
Hannah has a spirit effect.
Then falling through the world. Then things light up, bright lights warmth. In a mountain range with mountain beneath her feet.
All encomparing sun above. Gazeing into the distance something is wrong.
There is no horizon its curving the wrong way.
Giant spindly limb tries to smash hannah.
8 is an important number with one
or 3 1 3

Hannah falls over unconcious. Armor stands out, hisses of steam.
Something else was tapped to here.

The stalagmite is really clean. And self clearning. This is a dedication to something and have to be very clear about meaning which prevents smudging.
Carved after cavern but not much later. Dedication to Lloth the great saviour.

Gorun nova is upset about not eating a priest of lloth.

hannah: gvirus
sarah: TV0
Kaz: TV0

H Notes 2/13/16

Warforged: gem: 40%, level: 60%

DMR: Extra nasty mummy rot.

Take a rubbing: Verinal and Warforged start hearing a low buzz/whale sound. We mention it to Kaz, and then she can pick it up. It does not seem to be altered by distance. It is ‘directional’ in some way, but we’re standing so close to the antenna to quite understand the direction. We recognize that we’re standing in a directional beam that then is ending up in a repeater/omnidirectional thing.

Kaz picks up a second layer of omnidirectional broadcast/ omnidirectional thing. Warforged is receiving and then omnidirectional

Power type: faith. True Believer’s effect.
Believes in a god, a domain or themselves so hard that they can cast directly from it.

Stare at the beam:
Blurring of sense as piggyback on the beam. Up towards the sword coast, and towards waterdeep. water deep is one way and waaaaaaay down deep and slowly curving more as it goes downward (string on partial tension). Curves starts slowing out (most curved in the middle). Feeling dark warmth, with flickers of open spaces, like traveling quickly through the underdark. At one point feel like going through a stained glass window with wire reinforcement at 190 miles per hour.

ART

Feel like falling through the worlds. Then everything lightens up. Mountain range with clouds beneath feet, and then jarring sense and clouds are suddenly above feet. And there is an all encompassing light. Looking into it, something is wrong looking off into the horizon. As feel self pulled down back into marble stone. Standing on a plateau that’s carved and ‘marble’ stone, like basalt or something dense that has been polished. (I get buried into it because not paying attention to where it’s going)

There’s no horizon, the world’s horizon is on the wrong side. Stone armored limb, long spindly segmented arm plunges into the ground beside.

the hottest point was at the center of the curve.

Artistically set up divine, possibly lattice? spell weaving itself back together…anddd then break it again. 8 is an important number, 8 or 1,
3 and 1 and 3 is one above and below
4 and 1 and 4 (8 around 1 is possible)

Make it back to body, gasping.

1 surge to activate doing this.
2 surges spend going through the ‘glass window’ the first time
1 surge is permanently left on the other side.
1 surge spend breaking through the ‘glass window’ coming back

Spiritual issues (ask Aaron later). Talk about why I can remember that I forgot as well.

Universe see goes up by 2.

Takes about 10 minutes each way. In the physical realm, warforged’s armor pieces unfold and expand. From faceplate comes out a golden nimbus that flies away.
*

Dedicated to Lolth, a savior who led us to the promised land. Keeps clean because someone believed so hard that the message comes through. Lets us glean meaning despite not being able to read it.


Goranova not happy because it didn’t get to eat ‘the Priest’.

Verinal brings up the rear and notices something about the party, but doesn’t understand what it means. He thinks he shouldn’t mention it to the party, so he doesn’t.

  • Chant tells the goddess about our adventures. She gives Chant a look like “you have exceeded my very low expectations”. We’ve done well, it seems. She offers us a chance to get some heals on our ridiculous amount of diseases.
    she writes down Lolth’s name in a small black book with red ink. Lolth in trooooooouble.

Rei portal goes down at 37 minutes.


Identified Lolth involved with this: 450 xp (270 toward level, 180 xp towards gem)
Completed steps 1,2,3 of 4 to save Verdandi’s Paradise: 1400 xp (840 xp towards level, 560 xp towards gem)
Stopping creation of a megamind: 200 xp (120 xp towards level, 80 xp towards gem)

Level xp total: 1230 xp
Gem xp total: 820 xp
(go from 54250 to 55480 xp. Subject to change upon discussion with DM)

Bad decisions were made.
  • Manage to kill the T-Virus dragon. Radiant damage on one of the eggs.
  • At one point Hannah purified Moe with fire-based purification insta-ritual. This triggered her aura once again.
  • Hannah’s radiant damage seems to purify one of the eggs and also is able to purify the part of Rei that Hannah separated when Rei hit a bad level of infection.
  • Radiant-hit egg is a blue pale white, mostly from Shiva-powered radiant power
  • Jin, the clone of Rei, lavender-tinted chrome/mercury look. Possibly related to amethyst.

(H Note: Difference of how Egg and Jin were ‘purified’. Egg was hit by radiant attacks by Hannah and Moe. Jin was primarily stabilized through Hannah performing insta-ritual magic.)

David dragon check:

  • Seems like some cloning errors. He also remembers something important about ancient mithral dragons that this dragon reminds him of.
  • Dragon is psyonically active possibly has psion classes. She has growths that are embedded components…which are self enchantable. Jin is likely closest to the idea of a self forged.
  • Egg is small for an egg. but organic. very metallic. Egg is potentially psionically active. Has similar growths. The egg is very impressionablee. Whatever it is is very smart. Has all the memory of its forebearers. Moe and Crystal dragon, tvirus, and hannah.

Looking at the pattern, new thread rapidly manifested. Even really important ones.
Very fast creation!
This one is its own self.
There is an unusual weight to both threads, not quite taveren but have impact outside of nessecity to the pattern.
They will influence a lot of probability and their actions will have high consequence.
They not plot important but can affect things.
They are not beholden to prophecy.

We need to descide waht to do with egg and talk to dragon.

Lost in Time and Space

Dragon and Egg staring:

The purple/mercury/mithral-y looking dragon:

uhm…warforged/self-forged in nature. Sort of a cyborg in d&d.

Chant looking at the threads:

Very sudden threads woven in. They are not Teveryn, but they will affect nodes (Butterfly Effect type of thing with them). Not beholden to prophecy.

Gnome has green and orange eyes after trying to check out why Rei is being…chaos sorcerer-like.

Too many dragons?

The group picked up where they had left off in December- the middle of fighting with the T-Virus dragon. We’d left with a mix of infection levels. Rei had started to turn from phase 1 to phase 2, so the warforged used two surges to trigger her ‘save if dead’ power, but modified to instead separate Rei from the infection. The result was a Rei-shaped t-virus dragon/clone who had Rei’s bloodied value in hp.

The group continued fighting the T-virus dragon as it shifted forms. It was able to spray out large shards that covered the ground, painful to anyone stuck in the ground. I think it stayed after the fight? Might be worth looking at it.

There were also pods, most of which got exploded, I think? One got hit early on with fire-radiant damage +ongoing from the warforged, and later from ice explosions, and that seemed to cause it to change? It became more egg-like/ mini nuke-like in shape and size, and a pale blue color. In general, it seemed like these pods were set to develop over time before ‘hatching’. One was there long enough, it hatched into an eight-legged horse-dragon…thing that went and attacked Verinal.

Meanwhile, Chant was trying to convince Lil Miss to calm down. Lil Miss was freaking out because her power armor had broken and now T-Virus could attack (I think rolling 1s were involved…).

At some point, Moe’s infection levels were getting too high, so the Warforged used ‘fire, fire, purify’ (or something similar. There was a misunderstanding of what was said) to try and get rid of the infection. Moe began to glow and be a scrubby bubble with her aura, in addition to losing her infection levels.

Eventually the dragon was beat, hurrah! And uhm, very exploded. The warforged carried on her tradition of doing massive damage as primarily overkill. Yayyyy 425 icy colossal executioner axe damage. Thanks Shiva.

When ‘Evil Rei’ was low on health, she seemed to be breathing hard and sort of…out of it? There was…stabilization by the warforged/Moe? Maybe. ‘Evil Rei’ had taken radiant damage that had seemed to ‘smoothed’ part of ‘Evil Rei’ out, while the other half was mutating from the fire side of the damage. Warforged decided to try purifying her more rather than doing an ‘attack’, and after a couple attempts, all of the dragon seemed to ‘stabilize’ into a violet-tinted, mercury looking material. And then dragon went snooooooze. Unclear exactly what’s going on. But uh. We might have another dragon. Dragon named “Jin” for the concept of metal for the minute.

(Find out more about dragon next time- also see how it feels about name? Also, need to investigate the ‘dragon’ egg from the pod)

Warforged also might have had some words with one of the voices in her head on the matter. To Oriana, this transformation looked like Bahamut was at work and involved/approved of what was going on.

What else am I forgetting? Did we learn anything else?

Next time, questions/continuation of asking what we learn from our religion/nature checks about our new dragon and egg, and then hopefully a huge extended rest zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Puppy has a very bad day and Chant makes a guy confess his sins.

chant 61812
shinju for some reason has level 4 spells.

find a room with stuff that is on display.
also there is a bunch of chopped up wood in the room.
the side wall on the right is removable, possibly doors
tiny gnome notices that the hidden doors are a bit weird with bulges.
its a door for a dragon.
in the big mess of plants someone dug in and taken several small nodes of material(seed pods likely)
there is one seed missing – that is likely the one that grew.

toss the bits of the pod outside. they start oozing so we burn them.
comrades succor

we go looking for the dragon do not find it but 3 pillar things drop from the sky, they have minions that are growing on them,
on attack the minions separate from the statue and attack with magic missle
the dragon has been growing these as clones of himself
they are defensive in nature

go back into the temple to the main sanctuary. We open the door which seems to have lost power
the abbot is there he is telling the goddes that everythig is ok
he is lying. there are growthcoming off the abbod into the ground that have weird nodules.
there are tendrils of corruption is all over the central chamber
the abbot is throwing up static that is bloking the temple from the goddess view
he is also draining the temples power into the egg nodules
hannah also gets a run in with the hive mind.

Continue the fight with the abbot he turns into a big brute thing
So Chant tells the Abbot to confess his sins, he does and goes negative colors.
Then chant talks to the goddess. Gives a power point presentation.
she is mostly happy. We have to work of the thing with the pool.

Dragon, the pillars, monkeys are sort of visible, lots of swarms,
sepearate pool of water that that has steam vents, purpose of the room is skimming power off the material plane.
it is super sneaky
steam rising up is going to the top of the ent chambed and condensing there
big patches of swarm are big targets bigger than monkeys.
also check the pool room there is something important

talk to zak about fixing lil miss armor. Also spetral armor but more on that later.
another comrade succor

the dogs collar has a crystal that is primal enchanted. It is some sort of spirit thingy, an imprint of a creature or a soul?
It lets the thing pretend to be something else.

hannah gets collared and has a scent map of finding locations.
She now looks like a buff gnome with tatoos.

Call zak for doing make whole ritual.
3250xp for this session
Chant gets 400xp for one part of ent quest

Bahamut sends a message to Sarah about future doom. Someting about the deck of many things. Personal quest.

11-21-2015 Hannah's Notes

Find the room we were searching for. We are a pillar of caution. Looking in, part of the room has lots of burnt old armor pieces, big tablets, etc. On the other side of the room is a bunch of gnarled wood. Turns out someone took out a single seed pod, the other pods seem gnarly. Everything is grey-brown. On the burnt things side, the wall seems like it can be removed/ openable?

dragon door!

Talking to really old tree

40 minutes later…
moe is over stuffed with power.
chant is fiiiine.

hannah has a weird thing that is highly magical
shiva grants hannah a boon of a collosal magic weapon.

we go back to the temple
chant is thinking tree thoughts, feels an ancient presence below the ground.
then kaz gets zapped

the trap is very powerful and nasty. it is counter to people who use arts other than those of the temple.
david is not detected by the trap
moe causes a hum in the temple
kaz caused more hum but also charged

david pokes at the control thingy for a while. He can walk around just fine, its not seeing him.
Tries to think door open it does not work.
turns out its cause its not seeing him

use dimention door, it does not detect anything.

we can proceed down a tunnel. Sarah rolls down the stairs…sigh….

end in a large gardeny area with grass growing, good dirt.
most of the grass is green but some have glowing flowers.
the various vegetations are sort of separate
at the edge of the pool of water there is a large tree. 400 feet high, the roots are surrounding the pond.
there is a small sapling that is 7 feet tall, there are no animals.

some sort of massive psionic entity tries saying something quietly to me, it HURTS!

Chant talks to tree. It’s rude to talk so fast but sort of OK.
It seems to consider the new ent to be an evolution.
its actually pure
the pool is super deep and there is a glow at the bottom.
gives a description of the chamber where the seed pod is, gives a name and general direction. (chamber of the elder 7)
tells about the room with a sense of regret and sadness, picture of a small child telling stories.
tree notices that I am a tiefling, not happy about it.
gives me talisman and cleanse this place, it will help, or else.
leaf turns into an armguard thingy wrap.
remove the corruption from this scantuary.
chant has otherwordly knowledge tyranid.

the chamber wehere the pod is is refering to a human empire, that called themselves the elder folk.
the empire was actually first then dwarves and elves moved in next door.
pissed the dwarves and elves off a lot
7th dynasty was the last one, something happened that…well everything blew up.
-Tim’s apprentice was involved.
we know vaguely where this place was, its where the gnolls are.

get in a fight with a sentient sword and a statue.

11-14-2015 Hannah's Notes
A rolling Oriana gathers no moss

The warforged found something in her pocket- a dragon heart looking thing from an unmagical bag.

Oriana and Shinji don’t see anything. Lil Miss says it’s not food. That’s rare. Hannah will write herself some notes for later. Got the insight check off doing a ritual to get this.

Shiva is annoyed that she might be competing for warforged, manifests a colossal ice/cold ax that dances (see artificer power Dancing Weapon).

We enter the temple. Owowow the Corridor of Passing Storms is arcing a lot and causing pain. Kaz, Verinal and Shinji spend some time investigating the crystals in the hallway and figuring out how to go around it. The friends and foes part is turned off.

They decide to try the ceiling or the floor, go for the ceiling and Verinal gets zapped. He then tries the floor and gets access- it’s a sort of construct, and it sees Moe as a background and Verinal is a big black spot.

+++++
Ent:

Elder 7
7th Age?

mental image of a child hanging from trees and telling stories.

Why are you here?
“To fight the corruption”
‘small oak leaf’ falls. It is more ‘chilly’ in here- recognizes that Chant is a Tiefling. On his left arm the leaf curls up and forms an arm piece for Chant. The item was touching the pool as Chant picked it up.
“Remove this corruption from her Sanctuary”

Okay, the seed and the dragon fused :( and now it’s got one viable egg/seed which is brand new.

Kaz check: Human empire pretentiously named themselves ‘the elder ones’. Their neighbors were dwarves and elves who came later. ’the eldar/elder realm. Specifically after the 4th dynasty there was a a hierarchy struggle which meant that a sub-line took over, changing the style of power and court to intrigue. Tended to piss off dwarves with lots of mining, pissed off elves by removing forests. TEVINTERRRRRRRRR. 7th dynasty is the last dynasty. There was an heir, but no one quite knows what happened.

Another human tribe rebelled successfully. They ruled successfully until their emperor was assassinated and everything fall down.

117 years after Tim’s death, a loyal retainer- he was part of the Faing family. ANd he was was in charge of dirty warfare (Tim’s apprentice). The capital went boom. ‘A star was born and the capital was removed from the world.’ 6-8 weeks to the west, and then 6-8 weeks to the northwest, and then 2 weeks north. Plains.

Gnolls were a part of this empire.

+
Group goes looking for the room, as this is where the original seed was, looking for clues.

Swords and samurai armor are trying to block us going towards the room. The swords have anti-elven runes.

UHM these swords are sentient and have ego/personality. They would like to kill people.

I am apparently good at dominating objects.

“Take our talisman, and cleanse this place”
