Looting the Ogre’s area after the battle:
14027 silver pieces
8209 copper pieces
352 electrum. Smithed with an unknown kingdom.
112 Platinum. Mainly Arkhosian coinage.
30 Platinum and handfuls of silver, copper etc under it, but it seems they dug around but not these pieces.
It is child-sized, designed to stand upright. There is a faint old relief on it.
Arcane check- this area is claimed by the coffer.
We try to say hi at it. When I ask Shiva what it is she shows me image- Starscape and looking at certain areas trigger areas like “Enchantment” “Shamaning” “Sorcery” , shadow colossal thing. She then proceeds to say “RUNAWAYRUNAWAYRUNAWAY”, max urgency.
We get keytypes: undead, dragon.
Elora and Sumash confirm NOT GOOD.
Old liches become demi-lich. Demi-draco-lich? The head of a demi-lich could fit in this coffer. This dragon is older than Arkhosian and Turathi Empires. There was a cataclysm in their early histories that made them empires instead of small kingdoms- probably this guy,
We’re going to probably leave the coffer be and just make it seem like it’s not here.
Sarah prayed to Bahamut to tell him about this. Bahamut recognizes it, but doesn’t have all the memories because the memories are Io-based. We think it, or at least some presence, seems to start noticing us. We act casual and slink away. All the Shadyvale peeps catch our drift. Smart townspeople.
Forest is fixing itself or something. Yay.
Dammit I scared away the Walnut guy. And now I look nuts. Appropriate.
Ogre loot: 2 to all saves). It’s a creature, and basically becomes translucent and surrounds you, now protecting you. Legacy gear.
We spend some time in town around the 17th:
- I catch up with Verius, Rose, Rukia, dragons and see how they’re all doing and keeping up with all of them.
- Sumash is training at least 2 acolytes.
- Chant is under his tree doing…tree stuff. Lil’ Miss is talking his brain off.
- Oriana calls up Bahamut asking him about quests, gets a quest sign over her head that won’t go away. A pixie tells her about it, it’s a weird creaturey silly thing.
- Verinal has some of his relatives show up- something along the lines of his cousin’s kids- and it’s totally Sango and Kohaku from Inuyasha. They’re now his wards for the moment, and need to train to be better monster hunters.
Gatherer goes missing looking for walnut trees. We use animal messenger to…effect. We now have us plus a kobold jihad and a squirrel flailing by a string to go find this gatherer.
We look to go find these damn trees, and our old elven forrester pulls out his old pegasus gear (because ….of course he has gear for that? SHADYVALE PEOPLE). He actually volunteers to go do this. Thanks bro? I ask him about it, apparently he’s old Silverymoon guard- high level fellow at that! Was basically a flight leader.
“So he was hella proficient in pegasus flying”
We get some Roc eggs while saving the gatherer, but lost the gatherer’s mount. We’re going to sell the Roc eggs to the mount merchant. We end up getting in contact with him when he happened to be using Candle Keep. We do reverse portal to get him to Shadyvale- we now have the coordinates to Candle Keep if wanted.
Nov 21st: mount merchant shows up (His name is Percival). We trade him the two eggs for two glidewings and 4500 gold.
500 xp for Well Built Village for October
750 xp for next level village for November
I am at Candlekeep from the 19th to Dec 3rd. Come back when I hear that baby blue dragon is gonna be born! Going to research desiccation, and probably ANYTHING ELSE I CAN.
Baby blue dragon is a bloodline sport dragon.
Yeah at some point we are gonna use Candlekeep access point to then go to Waterdeep and purchase things. We have an interesting new jumpoff point for adventure!
Gardmore Abbey Group (Oriana, Verinal, Merchants of Doom, Asuka and Moe, Lil’ Miss, Susan, Verinal’s party): Gardmore is doing something with a relic, want to rededicate place and ensconce relic that they reclaimed relatively recently. They are worried about Outsiders (demons, devils, etc.) while they do it.
Quests: Hunt and kill, fey creatures (like quicklings), fetch quests,
Character Event: Some form of adventurer? Travelworn. They come from a small kingdom south of the Duchy of Therund. They’ve had troubles, and think we might know what’s going on. The fish all started dying, weird mutated fish happened. Shellfish, then fish. Then they started having issues with the beaches, weird pieces of glass, obsidian shards. This drove away ships. When they built over the beach, things would rot away faster than they should. Weird crystallization. Then the corruption moved inward, twisting trees and plants. The guy brought a bag of holding’s worth of things for us to examine.
Magic in the area was going wonky when he left. What.
He is third in line to this place. Heir, spare, war, priest. Priest in this family is dead.
This Guy/Third: Drake
Fourth: Julian (Deceased)
We try doing a sending, however it fizzles partway. We hit something, sounds like. We try again with lots of assisting.
