Walking around the complex

Fight the profane warforged dude

The warforged does some sort of thing that actually affects the pattern via vancian magic.

We jump through portal to some sort of mechanised warehouse
Orianna keeps trying to have the sword eat stuff. We are concerned.

Asuka tries to knock sword out of orianna’s hand. She does it, sword runs away and seems to be eating things.
Asuka is trying to catch it.
At the end of the warehouse its making giant stone crosses with circle in the middle. They seem to be artificially aging them somehow.
There is some sort of standing portal thingy which is the portal you went through.

We are still somewhere below town.

Sarah sits next to the tombstone, they are copletely normal….yeah…

He is very organic, has an eye ball for a heart…and everything is tied to it. Take a while to strip him.
Made out of a bunch of very strange things. Bits and pieces that do not make a lot of sense. Eyes in the forarms that are from a beholder, in the arm that was shoting that evil ray.
There is loot stuff.

Others look the stargate. He’s using something that lilmiss really likes in his construction. Mostly mobile, that would nibble back. Lil miss eats one of the containers. Wet mucus covered eggs, no idea what they are. Lilmiss found these deep underground a good way from town.
They seem to be a consumable component for something.

Lil miss goes to another box which is weird because why would you put food in this box. Used for armor and rings and stuff and on iky things to fix them. Bos has gentle repose and regeneration. The head is taking damage and regenrating. Some sort of reptilian insectoid made by fiends. Cythons, earthbound demons.
Stations each do a specific enchantment. Each assembly point is partially enchanted and timed to do complex enchantment peicemeal. Does not require a lot of oversight and automation. Tell about this idea to zak and chant.

The way this facility was set up without using undead energy. cause the tombstones will be places near churches and priests, it could be noticed.

Is there any paralel between the crosses and manhole covers. Seen them get enchanted. When assembled together something hides the encantments on them.

One door had a metal red bar, with red on one edge.
Big rolly door.
One door into a small building inside the room.

Sarah goes back to poking a tombstone. Feels a tingle. Shinji and Asuka do as well. Tombstone sends out a wave of energy. Asuka seems to go mad and attacks the party. She gets hit by a vancian curse. Shiji can figure out the curse from the assembly line.

Lil miss telepathy goes up and psycic sense range goes up. Zoantrope check is now 30. Noooooooo

This type of tombstone is used in temple/church graveyards. They trigger at night and polymoph people in a radius.

Dude we fought in the temple is vagelu fammiiar to sarah. But can’t place a name, feel like shold know his name and face. Mid to late teenager.

We enter the small building the door is a portal spell that moves us a lot farther away. Shadyvale seems to be through the door.

Someone comes in to get a box. They see shinji and freak out. Shinji thinks we are on same plane but outside looks very very odd.

Another golem comes in carrying a box. It uses a magical device to duplicate what we recognie from other adventures as bullets.

Another marionette uses the door and it shows a completely different place. The portal seems to be linked to multiple places. The marionette goes to the roller door that is 4 inches thic of dark metal. A door made of solid adamantium. 200 cubic feet of adamantium. Its a very strong door.

There are a bunch of arcane manufacturing systems that are making bullets by the truckload. using a fabricate spells.

They are making a ton ammo and grenades. Also enchanting some bullets with bane. The parchment that has casting has names of people, some are bahamut temple.
We get several combat knives, kukri.

THen we get attacked by 6 cheap looking warforged. They point guns. Sarah bluffs them that she is a dungeon inspector.

She finds another room with guns its about size of costco, only making 5 types of weapon.
Another room is making robots being assembled.

Asuka and Sarah notice something that is vaguely fammiliar. The warforged are not really alive. A device moves over to the warforged and drops a spark of light on a crystal, and a drop of divine energy that creates a fragment of soul.
They go in two directions.

There is a giant hangar full of the warforged. He’s also built an xp farm. The vampires are odd, they have crude armor and look very generic.
Asuka has heard an old myth universal across cultures. A king sending undead hordes among the people to slaughter everyone. The crude weapons in particular is noteworthy to Asuka. Back when all peoples were one, the vampires looks like that. Super old.

The ambient level of energy in the room is low. Ambient levels of XP here are low. This is very odd. The ambient magix/xp is being colleted and used somehow.

Sarah goes to another room, finds a several squads. They seem to be specialist squads. The mechs seem to be getting loaded into cargo containers. The sparks of the guys here is different. The one percent that is different, with adventurer potential.

Notice a guy who seems to be hard to see. He goes for the alarm.

My name is stars fall upon the field sown. Single point of light in his visor. He is utterly icky.
When asked about his master and says something but it does not exist. He did one act that did this.
this is end of third day.

Oriana is now committed to restoring a temple up North
Shinji now committed to restoring this temple of Beshaba.

Shinji hears: Mess him up, talk to The Dragon, you are not aware of censored phrase.
Oriana just hears ‘Championship’

Impression: That which cannot die, I demand be killed.

in the name of the great one thou must champion. in the trials against the evil bastard, so win. P.S. whack ’im good

Do something in the trial…
death to the divine is not an imposition

Arcane? Vancian spell called ‘imprison’. Turns into a stone and tosses in middle of earth. Can pull back out by doing imprison or wish again on the same spot as it was done.

We teleport. We arrive about 40 feet under Shadyvale.

Talking to people about things

everyone was drawn out of winterhaving to chase fiends.

dispel magic was super effective on the evil dude
he escaped
probably using divine power to buff himself
is using a lot of astral diamonds.

he has drained all the temples in winterhaven excrept the bahamut one which we defended.
we ask for halp with stuff

shinji and orianna talk to beshaba herself
both of us get geased –
-shinji has to repair forever the temple in winter haven. Geas he has on him
-aurianna has to repair and restore some temple to beshaba

shinji has a power of modifier to use on him
he learns to avoid dealing with evil gods.
orianna gets an enchant on her sword which is super evil

she says: talk to The Dragon you are not aware of [cencored long phrase]
sarah hears : championship
that which cannot die I demand be killed. Will understand later with context

asuka thinks something changed about shinji

asuka goes outside temple of bahamut to pray to the great one, gets hit on the head with a walnut by squirrel
finds the kobold party sitting in an inn, and his soap box.

in the name of the great one you must champion against evil dude and win.

shinji knows a spell called imprison. This turns a person into a statue and buries them. The only way to get them out is with wish at the spot with their true name.

we teleport somewhere its right under the shadybale orchard!
ITs that guy from the begginging of tvirus!!!

the machines are making weird metal disks that seem to be partial gate spell. Targeting something our of frame of reference. complex seems to be fully automated and he has not been here in a while. Draining ambient cross realm magic.
This could be making the feywild leak eveither bigger or smaller.

Sarah’s sword eats master manhole. Sarah sees a city with a dusty magical shop, that has a floating skull in there. Someone in a trench coat walks in a shop. There is another following him in the same weird clothes that are super well made for us. He stands in the street watching the shop, and gets killed on the manhole cover and bleeds out. The manhole cover gets stolen. There is something wrong with the wound, like there is something underneath. Its not red human flesh. A third cloaked indiviual is the one who kills him and steals the cover.
Then the sword makes sarah go over to the other printed covers and Sarah gets a sense of more of these things outside of winterhaven. The sword really wants to eat more of these guys. A sacrifice triggers them and most a figure appears and explodes and dies. A small number explode at the seams and a werewolf bat goes on a rampage.

This is the red court of vampires.

Tear opens near the bucket and a “warforged” steps out are pale, bleached made of bone.
The portal is very crude, does damage to peple going through.
The thing is made of angel parts. Living construct that is undead. Has both the living and undead keywords. Weaknesses of both and abilites of both. The angelict part seems like equipment.

Don't Drink and Jump Dimensions

Verinal, Chant, and Olavien wake up in a forest clearing. Verinal is holding some sort of large egg-shaped thing with fine black and white stripes on it. Chant is under an overturned endless bottle of fire whisky, and has some sort of sentient potted plant. Olavien is cuddled up with Purple, and is next to many empty bottles. All are severely hungover, the plant is stoned. None of us remember anything concrete after the recent t-virus stuff, though we think much time has passed since then, possibly years. Above the clouds is more land, including mountains and stuff, like an Earth sandwich. A gigantic white dog flies by overhead, around cloud level, followed shortly by a swarm of demony things. We feel a strong gust of air from the direction they went, and then Verinal detects many people dying. We decide to go help. Olavien rides on Purple, Chant has a flying chariot of fire, and Verinal has a cloak of phoenix feathers (based on what it did, this is not the same as the “cloak of the phoenix” item).

We approach a large battle. The demons are assaulting a castle, which is defended on all four sides. One side has the superdog. One side has a single archer/priestess. One side has a clan of hunters. One side has three fighers, one of whom is a version of Sango. This is apparently some sort of final battle from Inuyasha. Chant starts planting trees to help the clan. Verinal helps the three fighters by shooting the larger demons on their side with the Jaffa Cannon. Olavien and Purple start tanking for the archer so she can be more offensive. We are completely turning the tide of the battle despite our excessively drunken state. We are likely high-epic or post-epic.

Some big bad guy starts forming above the castle by condensing many demons. With our help, the bad guy is losing and starts to get away. While chasing him, Chant and Olavien figure out that we came here on our own (Olavien made an interdimensional thread in the shape of a balloon dragon), and our presence here has accidentally triggered this final fight way too early and the pattern is trying to react. Chant removes the bad guy from the pattern (with baelfire) and replaces him with the potted plant, who acts as the villain for fun until it’s time for the heroes to win.

Chant takes a nap.

Orbital rebuke undead

Lilmiss goes through portal meets a kobold
the kobold gives little miss a fancy egg with dragon heads on it.

we all escape but end up in a hallway which is insane
its more disturbing the more you look
we seem to be at the edge of reality.

Asuka tries to pray to the great one, and the call goes everywhere.

Shinji tries to arcana gets weird reaction of a million voices crying out in terror then laughing in a weird way.
The voices were not reacting to him. There is a sound of static like sound with surges of fire. Some sort of element that I have been exposed to but dont understand. The cocept is vast, much bigger than what Shinji is used to.

The dragon heads on the egg are making weird pitched sound. Dragons can hear the thing. The three tones combine into words: Relic egg made my own of those who are not claimed by good or chaotic, and evil and lawful. But our enemies made my own. Three fold focused inward and stay it shall. Three fold focused outward and but once it be. Within strength of might, hardness of self and succor of life. Strength focused out all manners of the open box(egg) spread throughout. Threefold within draws from one who is now two, those who are lost and those who were forsaken. Threefold without draws on all those who never were but all are.

Primordial essence contained in a container in this case egg.

Shinji can research this stuff or help someone else.

Auriana tries religion, and intersepts a prayer. Some fight of a high level cleric in an abbey near a gnoll army. Under assault by a lich and his army. Also Auriana and the other person connect to eachother. Also somehow connects to Hannah.

Hannah hits the undead with a massive siege level rebuke undead and sends the lich flying.

The party is in the temple of bahamut in moonstair. This is completely normal. Also a set of coordinates. And a change to the portal ritual for hostile portaling. A way to break into portal circles and an awareness of the portal network.

Also Rose is out ofr a month or more.

Prayer

As Lil Miss leaps through the portal, she is greeted by a kobold.

Shiny metallic but not metal, with three tentacles off the top.

Faberge egg heavily detailed with draconic motifs, with three dragon heads coming out the top. It’s orbiting around Lil Miss’ head. She thinks she could pull on the heads.

Kobold is wearing armor, has pauldrons on each shoulder that are draconic, they are full of energy. They turn into draconic wings and then flies into a portal you can’t see.

We make it! OWWW.

We end up in a corridor. It goes forward and backward as far as the eye can, about 7.5 feet and then it gets hazy.
Chant and Oriana heard Asuka’s prayer to the Great One asking about what this egg thingy is floating over Lil Miss’ head.

Olavien, Chant, Oriana, Purple hears this echo/side parts of Asuka’s prayer. Olavien doesn’t really get it (rolled a 1).

Think that all things connected to sender or greatly related to Dragon hear this prayer.

Shinji tries to make an arcana check. He hears a million voices in fear, and then they laugh.

They were not quite laughing/ full of the feeling of it. It seemed like it wasn’t at SHINJI per se, but something felt like it that he understands.

He sense fire, he intrinsically understands it. He gets a rustling sound (rising and falling) with the fire.

Arcana stretched off into infinity.

The three heads on the egg are humming as a compilation of these pitches. It would be hard to understand without special hearing. Dragons are some of the creatures who could hear it.

humming together to make a word. each is talking. Slowly.

“Relic egg made my own of those who are not claimed by good and chaotic and evil and lawful, but our enemies made mine own.”

“Threefold focused inward, and stay it shall. Threefold focused outward, and but once it be.
Within strength of might, hardness of self, and succor of life.
“Strength focused out, all manners of the open box [egg] spread throughout”

Primordial essence within a container.

“Threefold within draws from one who is now two, those who were lost, and those who were forsaken.
Threefold without draws on all those who never were but all are.”

Oriana listens to the place religiously:

Roll percentiles!

60

Lets herself go, gets a sudden burst of Platinum. “Please succor my friends” open request

She takes up the request, lay-on-hands is gone. She also offers up healing font, doesn’t get back until further notice, and shield of devotion uses are gone.

roll percentiles: 45.

Mari Curry
ardent cleric
research for bahamut that has been trapped in a fight in a small abbey out of the way far to the northeast. Abbey has been separated from the rest of the bahamut people due to troll invasion across the plains.

They are being attached by a lich and a swarm of undead.
“steamrolled with a large fluffy pillow”

Chant: Knows how this works.

Epic Destiny. Right kind of power.

Orianna healthy, but unconscious.

Entire party is at Winterhaven (not Moonstair) at the inner Sactum of the temple of Bahamut.

Important thing: Bahamut gives a set of coordinates and a modification portal ritual for hostile use.

Awareness of a ‘portal network’ that this guy used. Vague idea where they all come out.

Bahamut is now a lot more pissed than he was.

Come Sail Away, Come Sail Away, Come Sail Away With Meeee!

We go left. We open the door of the alcoved area into the next section. The door opener is claw door.

Strange raised stone sections, running parallel throughout the room. 60x 80, with a 20 ft alcove.

3inx 6in with 2 ft between.

Door down, and over by the raised stone sections there is a hatch-door thing that is scaled.

++++

We sing a boat to life and float it through some doors and now we are with old growth English forests. We are in a place that looks sort of like the heart of the titan from Dragon Age: Inquisition.

There is a floating castle that looks like an iconic german castle, like so:

+
Oriana has apparently been scratching at her left arm, seems to be glowing.

Blue with purple and red and green and yellow elements in a swirl, shifting.

Olavian on day 3 notices it on her chest/breastplate area.
Verinal on his forearm of dominant arm
Kaz on her shoulder blade, dominant side
Chant on where his heraldry/shoulder pauldron would be.

+

Uhm. Lil Miss is hearing lots of psychic channels…doing battle commands?

We are talking about Bahamut/doing ritual of Mystic Sages. Asuka decides to ping the server.
“Oh Great One! Can you hear me?”
All the channels shut up. And then all talking over each other. Whoops!

Well, now Asuka’s got the Great One’s attention. “Oh Great One, a dragon was horribly slain and must be avenged! Help us find the one who did this so we can avenge!”

And then ALL the dragon marks light up. All of them. In Eberron. Uhm. We’re in Eberron. And the Great One just tapped untapped power?

Oriana’s mark is burning hotter when she gets ‘warmer’?
+
:( We could have gone through the stone of the keep directly, but rolled a 1. We could have had it alllllllllllll.

+
""Our #dnd game so far: sang ‘Come Sail Away’, recited tunnel monologue from Willy Wonka to make our boat go. Now running around to Yakity Sax"

We burst forth into a religious room with the Lord of Blades, making a fiery explosion. Cool guys don’t look back at explosions.

We fight!

Oriana
small thing in a door that is not actually there at the back of the chamber. 3 rearing heads of a dragon talisman. It flickers for a moment. It’s got yin-ying heads and a total of 8 dragon heads.

Warehouse of evil.

Shinji can sense direction and distance to shadyvale
Also can sense mood, health and seems to be able to bolster its health

Sarah can detect all source of fire.

Asuka knows how to use some of the stuff in the area.

There are a lot of valuable metals and stuff.
Aluminium
Fey wild metals. Fey touched steel, fey touched unknown.
Some sort of corroded metal that was underwater with elemental atunement.
Sea touched blue iron.
Mysterious blue metal that is more magical orium
adamantium, hell steel, blessed steel. Angelforged(uses a living angel), enchanted brass. Magically reinforced steel, magically reinforced zinc, magically contained slightly white shiny white metal, rusted bar with anti force on it. Lightly enchanted form of highly processes steel(masterforged). Cobalt “encahnted defence”, magic metal. Mithril is in the forge.

Take notes on magical forging equipment.

Notes about the super heavy blue metal. they are buy the guy. Not sure what the vellum is from or what the ink is.

We steal the blue ingot, the aluminum, and the angelforged.

Blue ingot falls out of the handy haversack. The bag has lost its magic.
Shinji does science on the blue ingot which we leave sitting in the hall. A +1 enchanted ingot seems to get corroded by its magic getting destoryed.

Little miss sneaks into a warehouse where we find the items all the metals were sampled from. There are TONS of stuff here. Including the angelforged spear which Sarah tries to take, she falls over unconcious. We get attacked by 4 divine magical constructs that are profaned to tiamat, bahamut, kord and correlon.
GorunNova eats two of the constructs power.

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.
