Chant meddles in things.

13kg to make whole on power armor

3,9,1

lv 5 wand stadard non essential wizard defensive
lv 7 non essentials avenger unity
lv 18 ahn-tar paladin of elora, charisma pally, beholder…plate…wearing
+3 wand of lightning, 3 amgic book?, +3kris vanguard, +3 sword of the defender, +3 rod of lordly might, +1 rhytm blade, 4 bags of holding, pearl of power, boots of stealth heroic, butterfly slippers, dwarven boots paragon, acrobat boots, paragon, boots of quickness, 2 muleback heroic, fort save belt. robe of stars.

use the low level npcs as other parties, to help main group.

persuade willow, to do sociology report about ahn-tar. Roughly positive influence on town. Racial issues suddenly pale in comparison… High level adventurers suddenly spike. Reputation with adventurers has gone up, not sure on the better. Larger number of foreign groups in town on a more permanent basis. Now a place of interest.

nentir vale rep 75
world rep 50

black meeple comes to town. Looking for someone to assist in a quest of his. Being rather tight lipped about what he wants done.
Rougly human in shape solid black figure. Pair of yellow eyes, and two ponytails or hair things down its pack. Claw like hands, slightly over sized. Faint patterns on the skin depending who is talking to him(?) Not an undead. Seems to have a strong connection to the plane of shadow. Not a shadow either.
Seeking people of power, not nessesarely adventurers. Talks to willow, verius because he goes to the childrens house, talks to luanna a young elven woman in her 60’s bakers daughter apprentice, an apprentie at the wizard academy zerina human 16, susan, lil miss, respect bonaparte(was a person of power). Looking for a group of heroes to assist him a quest of hisown to recover an item and depose a tyrant.

Bakers daughter and apprentice have higher potential than normal, threads are brigther than normal.

Very respectful charsimatic but also monotone.
Talk to him to discuss things what he is looking for. What the dangers are. Help him recruit wirt, baker’s daughter and apprentice for this quest.
6 uses of hand of fate to check for this being a good idea.

Doorway to another world behind it. The door is not there to arcane senses. It’s super weird.
40 minutes later they come back…O.o with magic stuff.

Fully trained warlock pact to eternity. Lvl 11. New town npc.
Just a baker. Yup. Wants to opena cafe(Midori).
Wirt has lost of stuff to sell now apparently. Very shiny and magical. Lvl 17 merchant(expert)
Shard of para-elemental ice to keep things cold. Shard of elemental energy from the plane of ice. We have another unique thing.

Bob’s is bigger and better and is actually cheaper.

higher rank druidic circle needed for druidic farmers. Can set up finishing school.

level 0 buildings essentially have half a slot. Make master apprentice training easier.

there are druids visiting the druid circle in town, not twons folk.

worlf rider people are closer to shamans. surge plus hitpoints.

need to go through lists of todo things.

December needs to end

We look at the area inside the lattice in the fey quarter. In addition to the strange creatures, we notice that it appears to be moonlit inside, and if we look in and up, we can see a moon in the sky even though it’s not there in the real world. Autumn is horrified by the suggestion to go inside, and settles on Verinal’s shoulder, as he agrees that it sounds like a bad idea.

Autumn notices a large cocoon of spider-silk (small sized, mechanically), and asks about our large spiders. We investigate and find many more, though none nearly that size, most around the size of a bird. The webbing appears to be spider-silk as best as Verinal can tell, but the structure is much more complex, like stranded cable. We follow the trail, and it leads generally in the direction of Verius’s area, and even past that. We ask the guards there about them, and they say that they started showing up a few weeks ago, and they’ve just been tossing them in the trash.

Since they are apparently safe to touch, we cut one open, and release a small bird which flies away. A smaller one is found to contain a few bees. We go back to the first large one we saw, and upon opening it we find a wolf pup which looks like it belongs to the small elven wolf-riders just outside town. We take the pup and a couple of small cocoons and head there to see them.

We talk to one of the treesingers and return the pup. He asks where we found it, and we show him one of the cocoons. He yells for someone called “Petalwing”, who turns out to be a small pixie-like creature called a Preserver. They came here with the elfish people, and apparently some have been wrapping up things they aren’t supposed to. He promises to get them to stop. The creatures wrapped up are essentially in stasis, though they are apparently able to think at least a little.

We then ask him about the lattice, since it looks likely to have been constructed by a treeshaper. He says that he was the one who shaped it, though one of their shamans did the enchantment, and Hagrid’s druids organized the whole thing. The lattice was grown from Yew and Holly. The shaman is primarily an herbalist and midwife, though she has an interest in dreams which is why she became involved. The other physical element of the lattice was actually the “shimmersilk” produced by the preservers, which keeps everything properly contained.

The Fey leader’s dreams are being made manifest, probably due to his growing power and the preposterous amount of drugs he’s taken. The lattice acts as a boundary to limit their intrusion into the real world. (Hannah mentions the Veil, and the shaman seems to like the terminology.) He could force them past the boundary if he chose to do so, but his current level of intoxication prevents him from even considering the idea that there is a world beyond his dreams, and as he sobers up, his gradual realization that he is dreaming will limit his ability to affect the world in this way. So for all practical purposes, the barrier is guaranteed to hold unless some idiot opens the gate, which would allow his dreams to exit. We ask about entering through the world of dreams, and she is intrigued by the concept, especially since we confirm that it really exists, but has no idea what would happen.

As Verinal is shaking her hand, we are brought to the Arena, and apparently she is taken with us. This is likely due to Verinal’s status as a domain holder. Shiva is mildly annoyed at this, and gives Verinal a hastily-scribbled list of rules, most of which either make no sense or are impossible to act on given Verinal’s current knowledge. Shiva goes to see who we’re up against, and apparently the brackets have been re-arranged after multiple teams dropped out due to being killed. This is largely due to extra-dimensional incursions, such as the area-replacement bubbles and dungeon keepers, including what Shiva believes to be a very large dungeon covering an entire peninsula south of Waterdeep.

We will be fighting in a three-way battle against Team Gruumsh and Team Uthgar. We get to choose the battlefield, so in an effort to confuse the opposition, we create an urban/suburban area with a modern Tokyo aesthetic (provided by Rukia). We win, and Shiva also wins additional side bets, including that we would overkill someone by 75, that we would do 120 in a single action, and that we would accidentally hurt ourselves 7 times (this was the 3rd tier of that bet, and the only one for which we surpassed the first tier). Shiva made a nice profit, ending with 69 power points.

When we return to reality, Autumn asks what the $%&* just happened. Apparently she was brought with us too, but was put in the stands rather than with us in the prep area. She says she won a bet with a few other spectators, and shows us 3 divine power gems. One of destruction that she won from an orc (Gruumsh), one of wilderness that she won from a human (Uthgar), and one from an unknown elven woman that seems to be related to Hope, with elements of justice and protection (?). We try to explain to her what the gems are and that the spectators she was betting with were almost certainly gods, but she doesn’t believe us and puts them in her pocket.

We decide to go see if the Department of Mitch might be able to help figure out why Autumn is here, since they know a lot about pixies and fey things. As we arrive, we hear some odd noises and the door to the department is missing. Asking around the regular workers reveals that the noise we heard was some sort of alarm or siren heard near every member of the department, upon which they all ran into the door which then flew away. The statue of Mitch outside has also been replaced with one of a walrus. My theory is that for some reason Mitch was running away from Autumn, though she claims not to know any pixie named Mitch.

Things to follow up on (in no particular order):

  1. Have someone organize crews to open the shimmersilk cocoons around town, go through the compost heap to open the ones thrown away, and issue a notice that if any more are found by citizens, they are to be opened or brought to guards to be opened (include details to differentiate these from normal spider cocoons). If there is another large batch after this one is dealt with, talk to the wolfriders.
  2. Find the department of Mitch
  3. Figure out what’s going on with Autumn
  4. Put together a list of “What the hell’s wrong with this town?!” for Autumn (task for Verinal, assuming no such list already exists. I would ask if the DoM has a list, but they’re missing, which kind of goes on the list)

8/19/2017 H Notes

There are lots of cocoons starting around the Fey Area.

Faraday Cage. Also that area is now NOT TOWN.

These cocoons have animals in them who seemed to be sleeping/in stasis?

++

Druids (Hagrid) asked the shapers to help put up the lattice while they did a fancy ritual. Yew and holly to make it. Elda (shaman for them).

Peddlewing. Not a Pixie™ (insectoid like flying pixie..ish). Bramblebuck or Tickletoe.
Post the belong-time, they inhabited a wood.

They use these webs. While inside, the thing is in a deep sleep/deep dream. Time does not pass for them.

++

Eld’ar= someone who speaks with spirits. Name the druids who they worked with have been working with them.

ShenShen, midwife and herbalist.

Several of them were in sleeping in cocoons for 800 years. Only woke up a decade or two ago. So she’s got knowledge of dreams. Many of them do.

Forebearers, rootless ones were immortal.

The Great Dreaming, helped set it up.
“Crim, Skot, put on some clothes, we’re about to have guests”
Brings out a big book. It has a strange carving on the cover. It’s a large eye. It seems to be looking at us. Might be wood…but if it is, you can’t see the grain.

She was reading it recently and they asked her about it. Creating the lattice from it.

Open the book and there’s a beholder. Beholders can dream more beholders and things into existence. She calls them ‘Beholden’. Or she misspeaks? Blargle.

Shimmersilk, Yew, Holly. Contains the dream. His dreams ‘they have as much power as he thinks they have’.

To enforce it about the reality that is now is different than how strong it is. You can’t be more real than real.

He would have to know he was breaching, which means acknowledging the barrier on his dreams, which makes them more dreamlike.

Now if someone just walked in

Shimmersilk is made by immortal beings that live to hold things as they are. The High Ones that came before us all uplifted the preservers to preserve their navigators so that the navigators could dream forever.

++

Verinal and Olavien get poofed into a Roman Coliseum. We bring ShenShen with us and the dusky skinned angel who belongs to Verinal.

Verinal has two full pools each worth 20 pts. Squirrel has 9 pts.

David notices things and minions for everyone.

He sees kobolds go serious and salute hannah.
He also sees the “The blood of IO that hannah has that everyone cannot see” It wants to get tiamat and bahamut back together

Great one is above IO in squirrel’s view of cosmology.
squirrel is old for a kobold and is very very good at bluff.

David notices other things. (See hannah notes)

Yet another “pixie” shows up in my room. The winds are odd, do not seem animal like. Wearing a dress. Pixies tend to carry things like flowers and things, full size. This one is is wearing tiny ivy/leaves. the fox like ears are weird. Faint slits inside her pupils, like a second iris.

Chant, meets Autum. Water seem to be sticking to her from the pitcher.

Something knocked the pitcher over on top of her. Bunny is super afraid of her.
Room seems to be aspected to bunny and pixie.

Mitch made a prank carpet that will cause rabbits to spawn. Fey touched rabbit?

Chant seems to be spawning pixies by thinking about it. There seems to be a wooden mesh.

Fish swims by inside the mesh. Lots of fish inside, something amoeba like.
Mesh is to keep things in. Fey leader is in the middle of the whole mess.

Remove commands from angels. They suddenly start to fade, Autum says that was not right, without structure they fade.

I assign them to David, they suddenly go hostile.
David tries to capture them.
Chant tries bardic lore, turns out info about how angel function is activelu protected by Ioun personally. Chant gets knocked unconcious.

david is having a “mental battle” to get control of angels

Angels start to differentiate more.
Sun elf, some sort of caster. Light based wings . invoker of balance
Wood elf paladin, pink , green leafy wings. Paladin of Life
dark elf with metallic wings with a giant scythe Avenger of Death
moon elf of some sort, with bladed gauntlet. with big twohanded sword. Pale silver skin with glow. Bladesinger of Verinal?

Autum seems to be stuck 30 feet from someone in the party.
She seems to be only missing a day of memory.
She has been checking dungeon keeper locations. And other environmental effects like that.
She sounds super old. She lost count.

Angels are meandering around town. The temples are actually running again. They are getting repaired. The angels that were there are back in power and a bunch of new ones appeared.

Sarah feels full.
there is a surge and a diembodied feeling. Several fiery shafts hit my torso.
Startle awake.

Everyone falls over. There were 3 of these. Big metal pod falls next to sarah. She seems diminished.

Metal picture of a massive building floating in the star skape. And drop pods with super powerful space marine.

There are three posts 120 feet from sarah. Sides of pods blow off and three warforged walk out. They are pretty damn big. Experimental units for testing. Voice commands do not seem to work. Mental is effective?

orianna seems to have a source of oomph that seems to be missing. She seems to be tired and run down.

goblin lake, drarf fortress, small town part of ten town. We should confirm the two wee did not see.
We head to the inn, Autum orders fey wine.
Pixie seems to zooms from a shaft of light. Pixie is growing crystals and goes to sleep. She sent him to the courts about the issues that we’ve been having

She did a fey cider. Crystal cider. She sparkes as she turns around. She was dringing the cider being made out of the apples that got turned to crystal.

The beam of sunlight is a summer court thingy.

Head over to olavie, to search for plua.

Autum stares at shiva, shiva gives her a snow cone.
Plua was investigating walnuts. In the area where we found the walnut grove.
Sending to plua does not work.

Wood mana and fire mana are floating down the street. Autum goes and talks to them, something about mana things?

Notice a grand opening sign. Supply shop? Ye olde shoppe.

Some random items on display in the shop. Floating lady with umbrella and lavender hair. Weird little people in the shop seen as well. Giant lavender teddy bear.

A form floats down through the cieling. Also two floating fey? things going “chim”
The propereto is pamela ibis was referred to by rorona to come here.

she offers us an ankh that seem to protect against illusions and things. Seems to be several lauered enchantments. But about right power level wise.

4500g for ahkh thingy.

Adquate coffee(godlike)

Offers a magical item that is super fancy, also very expensive. The item is super old, suprised its not even sentient yet.

Also 122,000 for some sort of very fancy armor.

Duplication of stuff. is something she is apparently

CHant dumps xp into the armor it repairs. Chant does it super well.

chant ac goes up from +9 to +13
The armor moves and shifts looks lke scale mail.
resist 5 psychic, necrotic, force
special: if items tupes are more than one of the above the resist is additive.
+2 to saves against powers with those keywords.
if you have those keyowrds as power type, you are minus 2 to death saves, or +5
cannot loose healing surges due to surge drain, damage
when you spend an action point bonuses are increased to armor tier for one round.

While aurianna is holding it it turns into plate.
Hannah puts armor back on, after a bit she notices 18-20 for spending a surge, if warfirged resovles, 15-20

We finnaly arrive at the fey compound

"Okay look today's weirder than usual.."

Verinal thinks through what he sees when Olavien switches into the dragony shard, and all his knowledge suddenly shifts slightly and he puts together that Bahamut and Tiamat are the split parts of Io. He even read this once upon a time in a book, but his knowledge glazed over it. Now his balance-lore helps him realize this, and keeping a strong connection to the balance domain should help him remember taboo things he now knows.

The author of the book was important, but Verinal can’t remember why.
-
Verinal: Makes the wisdom check on Squirrel, then a perception check:

Squirrel: Has made reference between Io, Bahamut and Tiamat in his preaching.

Mother of Dragons (heresy) but not god of dragons
Bahamut is with justice and stuff and A DRAGON but not a god
Io is The Dragon God

The Great One is above all that. Part of that is GO has 3 heads, Io only has one, B and T only have half-heads.

When the great one was diminished there was Io. Comes from or took up the mantle in the GO’s stead..The Great One is here and not…
++
Sees the Blood of Io in Olavien’s pocket. He identifies percentages of Bahamut, Io, Tiamat

Oh I remember this rather than ‘I see this’ of a dragon who is starry, has a mandala of 9-like/seedlike shapes over its back(?).

Gets an impression of a woman/angelic thing. Also remembers Shiva more recently referencing ‘Big Sis Seraph’.
Contemporary of Shiva’s Pantheon? Possibly. Io is younger than Shiva. Probably not of Shiva’s pantheon.

Sees a symbol, that is ancient and not yet been. Not coming from balance-lore. This is shown to Verinal.
Olavien also sees it? (Dragon symbol)

+
It is the 28th of December:
We eat waffles.

Chant wakes up and there is a fey…Chant looks at it. It is probably not a pixie? Its wings remind him of thistles. She’s got fox-like ears, and covered in tiny vines around her, to her scale. There is water refusing to get off her. Her name is Autumn?

Chant releases her from the water with a great deal of force, and then it chases her upward before splooshing.

Autumn was trying to figure out where the heck she was when a giant creature tried to smush her with the pitcher.

fey pooling when the door is closed. 13 rabbit skins made to look like a rug.
Object read! Someone handing it to a person in town who helps with everything else. See tiny hands stitching it together, strand by strand making it the same color. Mitch looming over it all.

Chant is going to wrap Mitch in the rug and throw him in a lake.

Bunnies are feyish-touched but not from the feywild.

A Lord of the Area is also a Pixie, and Chant is a lord of the land and they are thinking about pixies.

Chant is going to see the Fey Leader. Right now.

Ritual…casting…winged…bunny? WTF is going on…

There is a wooden mesh around Fey area

++
Waffles continued

What are we gonna do about Thurizdun angels?
They are plugged into Asuka/Lil Miss and…into town

The angels are fading with how Chant is phrasing his ‘delete orders from current users’.

Chant tries to ask ‘how do angels work’, roughly and gets smacked and banned by Ioun and blacks out.

Verinal is trying to attune the angels. They start to change. Meanwhile Autumn is muttering in Elven. She is swearing up a storm.

Rippling divine energy…and it could be an effect they did against people who rolled before them. Seems kind of like what happens when someone gets a negative score. there is a mechanic before you can act for each negative.**

There is now a ‘sun elf’ in robes, energy wings: Invoker of Balance
Wood Elf, leafy wings: Paladin of Life
(lady) Dark Elf, Metallic jagged sword wings: Avenger of Death
Moon Elf, gray, wearing ‘skirmisher armor’, and runed giant blade that is light blue: Bladesinger of Verinal

Oriana is monochrome
+
The Temples have restocked and cleaned up
+
Autumn is currently stuck with us, and we’re crazy. Sorry Autumn.
+

Oriana stops being monochrome and is less than she was. Oriana feels a countdown.
Chant feels a surge and has a vague sense of awareness while asleep. Several fiery shafts run through Chant straight down into his torso.

fiery shaft coming down into town, and Oriana is the only one standing.

Angel calculates, and then a sense from Lil Miss of danger/warning. Picture of a massive citadel in black over a blue marble.

From lil miss: Scene of people with something like jaffa staffs blasting hundreds of green, flames per minutes. Thousands versus a planet, and they’re winning.

Pods land 120 ft from Oriana. Out walk three warforged.

We inform Autumn of world threats. She writes on a leaf and blows an ember into flame. “Give them the leaf” of the flame-ash.

Fey-wine/black bark wine: lol wat.

we make it to the next day!

the cambions are from a line of royal guards of tieflings.
Their families swore oaths at every generation to serve

They were following the demons cause they were next best thing.
They serve the emeperor and renew their oath. Their oaths preent them from doing damange to the emperor.

They will follow chant. They are some form of evil alightment.

But they can actually change their alignment.
They are willingly following chant. Yay?
Blood line is second in terms of loyalty. Anyone else trying for the throne they will consider him an usurper.

They will be ok with my plans.

I explain things to rest of party. They are not entirely happy with this plan.

nyad teels us that there have been more pixies spawning lately, its been a while since a large fae has appeared. Its been pixies constantly over the last two months or so.
david talks to mithc, pixies have been acting weirder than usual.

Chant crown is flamy with tendrils that looks like brances, or barbs, the colors seem to have brows and green in them.
Tree gives me three cherrys.
The three devils speaks in true supernal.
they eat the cherry, take the seed in their hand and squeeze, the seed cuts their palm, and they bleed on the tree. the tree blossoms. They will plant them. The name they use for chant seems to also indicate the land.

They start walking away, and the two males skin starts getting paler, their horns change. Ears become more tiefling. Their physical apperance improves, their build becomes more that of a martial artist. Tails shrink, hair changes to more normal color. Skin is more a greyish with red. Claws are gone. Wings fade away. :O
The female tiefling has the super fancy horns ever. Eyes are much more subtle, but have shade of blue on blue with a glow.

Hanna stated at them with staring. Succubus blood adjusted them. They can still probably fly because the wings are magical. Ethereal wings? Their magics are a litte on the creepy side for hannah. They use soul magic.

CHant wakes up to several pixies pixes and bunnies in my house, put the bunnies in olaviens house.

There is a new mana in town, we should talk to them. Fire mana? Last fire mana was called ember before the last Iris, current is Uru

Kerowyn is following the t virus. It killed some bandits, the team following killed and burned them. Then a fox wolf thing slowed them down. Susan and bag pipers are on stand by.
Someone in keroyns crew who gets introduced to us by susan. White winds adept Talia. Specializing in battlefield control, shaper psion.

Bloodguards’ oaths: “My blood when you thirst, my fire to warm you, my flesh when you hunger, my steel to defend you
I am the blood, with wings to carry. I am the guard, my life is yours. I am the soul, with heart to shelter. Before this life, and into the next, forever.”

Looking at Chant and Cambions:

succubi blood lets them transform somewhat to match Chant’s ideals of what he’s doing. Suspect they can still fly, ethereal.

Their magics are a little on the creepy side for Olavien. They have talented soul-based magic. Auras are soul-based.

Plua was..somewhere/when. Doing things with minotaurs? Shadyvale/Nentir Vale. Talking to the ones in Thunderspire, in the past. There was also a human when the minotaurs mages were being ruuuude.

Collapsed when we had the collapse, like ‘it did last time’.

It’s now more green in Shadyvale.

Plua mentions there’s a new mana name Uru. She says there was another one before. I ask if it showed up after Wood Mana. There was an fire mana and it was named Ember before IRIS. and then the Conversation Is Over.

She introduces us.

7/8/2017 David's Notes
Angels & Demons

[Notes are roughly from Verinal’s point of view, with significant exceptions within brackets]

After Chant’s huge “make whole” ritual accidentally condensed various energies into gems, Chant tried to put the elemental gem into Olavien to find out what it does. For some reason, this caused it to explode into dust [something about incompatible energy types, relating to what Olavien used to be]. Chant then immediately ordered an evacuation of the “normal” citizens, so Verinal backed away somewhat as well as a default reaction to magic gone wrong again.

One minute later, 2 portals opened up, one to the astral sea, and one to the hells. Various angels and devils appeared. The angels were identified as being of Oghma, Gruumsh, Sune, and Malar (the one from Malar seemed to be in charge of that side). Of the devils, the one in charge was identified as working for Dispater. [They showed up as part of an agreement between the gods and devils to deal with a detected incursion of a primordial]. The angels of Gruumsh ordered everyone to stand down. Verinal and Oriana stowed their weapons to try to lower the threat level, but Chant tried to do magic to the cloud of elemental energy. In response, the angels knocked him out.

As Olavien tried to explain things to the visitors, Oriana healed Chant, and as he woke up, his fiery crown briefly flickered on. One of the cambions noticed this, and told the others to “honor the compact” [I think that was the wording], causing 2 of them to firebomb the angels and devils surrounding the party, and 1 to shoot the devil of Dispater in the back, one-shotting her. One of them also dispelled the hell portal. Chaotic battle ensued, which quickly became less chaotic as most factions were killed within a round.

At this point, the remaining factions were the Shadyvale conglomeration (several dragons and kobolds were showing up now), the cambions (which were fighting on the side of Chant), the angel of Malar (who just wanted to kill us all at this point), and the angel of Sune (who was protecting Chant because she wanted to find him a soulmate). Most of the angels of Oghma died in the initial attack by the cambions, and the angels of Gruumsh which survived that attack died fighting the other devils.

Suddenly, Shiva appeared, condensed the elemental energy back into a gem, and smacked the angel of Malar with her hammer. The angel of Malar reported that their task was complete and closed the astral portal, remaining behind to finish killing us. The blue dragon woke up at that point, face-palmed, and went to ask the seneschal about something relating to orcs [actually orks]. Willow did some nasty looking spell which made it easier for us to hit him, and we made short work of him, save for a brief resurrection. Little Miss Trouble ate the angel (after we removed his items), and Asuka used their connection to help here adapt only the hunting aspect of his nature, not the malicious part of that.

Chant was disappointed that the statue of Mitch remained unharmed.

Some time later in private, Verinal mentions to Olavien that just before the fight he noticed a flare of divine life energy within her, and asks if that’s something that usually happens, since he was previously unable to see such things. She says that it’s new, and related to unlocking some of what she used to be (since she’s clearly not actually a warforged). She asks him about how he was able to identify the domains of the angels as they showed up in the fight. He says he’s not sure, but it’s definitely new, and presumably related to having attuned to Zodiark’s temples. He also explains a bit more about how Zodiark is dead (but not “gone”), and that he’s managing the power level of Zodiark’s domains to stop them from overflowing, which is what caused the patchwork area around the temples. He says that from what he understands, anyone but him would have been very unlikely to succeed at attuning to all 3 temples, and he’s pretty sure the gods that were fighting there didn’t even know that the temple of balance existed.

The cambions have broken their bond with the hells and pledged loyalty to Chant. Chant will have a discussion with them to figure out if they will be allowed to stay (or even live), considering they might not like what his long-term goals are.

When the subject of the angels of Tharizdun is brought up, Verinal will suggest that Zodiark’s temple could use some new angelic guardians, and he can probably figure out how to have them claimed and sent there, possibly with some instruction from Shiva. Alternately, maybe Shiva wants some angels? That suggestion won’t be initially made in front of Shiva.

This went better than it could have?

Angels and devils teleport in.

Chant gets knocked unconcious and on heal crown manifests and is seen by things

This causes the cambions to switch sides to ally with Chant.
The other devil who was working for dispater also noticed, she got blown up by the cambions.

Floaty staff
plate armor,
2 katars
2 longswords

will need to check this stuff for magic, must figure out floatyness!

investigate dealiing with the angels of thrazidun, possibly have david claim them to guard temple.

giant fight erupts all the devils get killed off, cambions shut the abyss portal.
shiva teleports in and collects the elemental energy back into a gem.
ogma angel and Sune angel back off, Sune was actually watching fight through the angel.
Malar angel shuts down angel portal indicating that mission is done.
But he wants to kill us cause we are good prey.

sune now wants to find a partner for chant, is gathering “stats” about chant

willow joins the fight. she does a vancian like spell to attack the angel. uses a sword made out of the feathers of an angel. Super evil item.
reminder she is a vile scholar who uses evil items for good.
takes a bunch of stat damage, need to speak with her about healing it.

Lil miss eats the angel, gets the properties of malicious hunt which asuka can handle apparently.

6-24-2017 Hannah's Notes
We did science, this happens sometimes

Santa Clause Random Event:
Santa Claus’ red out- heavily enchanted, fey enchantment with time and movement effects? Doom aura of bloodlust. Red is probably blood rather than the suit being red. Continually drip blood.
Sandy Claws: Vorpal + ?, Nightmare+ ?,
Unknown musket
unknown small musket
Rations ???
Unknown bag containing strange boxes, unknown quantity, screaming of souls sound
black boots, shiny
wispy substance, nightmare fuel? Stored in a strange plastic box that farts

Church: damaged
pop: – 27

Make Whole:
Ramshackle→Townhouse with Weasley add-on

Something crystalizes in the middle of town, and the xp in the air normalizes.
Floating in the dead center of the circle, 90 ft in the air.

water- leviathan
science!!!!/civilization
fire elementalism/threatening, elemental
earthy-tree/ shiva pantheon (gaia)
Shadow

All the PCs no longer have shadow
two other gems: shiny silver that doesn’t do anything…it is actually ‘not colored’
sparkling bright color, life healing effect to it, vampire!, dragon-dova,

Treant: Lots of divine energy rolled up through welled up through him- it…flavored it? (Was it good for you?)
You need to go talk to the Sakura.

From below, our goddess. The earth goddess. The one who lived in Nentir Vale. The one who used herself to seal the firey one below. Mages tried to unlock the firey one and the earth one gave herself to seal the firey one.

Children dancing upon thrown stars =mages

Chant: her divine energy was in the earth? Is it still around here?
Tree: Not here. The covering now has a hole and is slowly filling back in, which means the area around is weakened.
Chant faintly feels elemental energy welling up.

Written into the mudpie: cleansing and pushing out into the ground in a Vancian way/ what’s filled her. Rose wasn’t grounded. Rose is effectively a Vancian ritualist- like dagna

Oriana is more dragon not elemental fire.

Oriana: I am curious! Want!
Goranova: oooh!
Olavian: take them out!

Verinal lets Goranova take the gems into its hilt, but ‘puts a lid’ on it so it can’t access them.

Life and Balance are now in Goranova, the other four are therefore not eaten.
After a few minutes, Verinal gets the impression that this is a mostly-dead god not from this realm. Normally it is very logical, structural. It was in place to cull excess in a civilization if necessary. There’s something that outranks it that could give it orders, but that’s not here.

Stare at three things at once- the two gems and SCIENCE!!! ‘nearby’.

Oriana has shadow, vampire!, water-leviathan, science!

Divine/demonic- radiant demon.

parts are going to wake up in the next year.
+

When Verinal comes out of processing data about Oriana and Goranova, he and Chant and Olavien start talking about Goranova and removing/looking at him. Chant wants to look at the pattern for Goranova. Verinal and Olavien helped describe how to look for him/it.

Oriana’s sword gem area can rotate different gems to be towards the blade. When she tries to leave the empty slot towards the blade, she makes a saving throw and fails. Loses 15 hp as her blood appears, filling a ‘hole’.
