February 26, 2011

A Summary of tonight’s session. We had to call the session a bit short tonight as one of the player needed to get home as he is flying out for his job tomorrow.

The cast of Characters

Dave @ Sarx Hum Thf
Mike @ Tolan Dwf Ftr/Clr
Maggie @ Minerva Hum Clr
Brad @ Poctora Hum Wiz
John @ Drake Elf

The Party finished exploring the Haunted Tower of Inverness, discovered a hidden elevator in the master bed room that lifted the bed up to the roof, Sarx discovered a decanter of endless water was fueling the cistern system and also Found a new cloak, A cloak of elven kind: summer court. The also discover the roof is covered in astrological signs and star charts with various hole drilled in the roof for an unknown use.

The Party then returned to town returning the kidnap victim and discovered the town had found and lynched the Black skinned tattooed woman. With the return of the girl the town had a huge victory celebration, and the party met Harold the hedge mage who gave them 3 potions of healing and the town magistrate offered the party 50 acres of land or 25 silver pieces as reward for returning the girl. After a festive night the part went to sleep at the inn.

The next morning the party got up with plans to talk to the magistrate about the land offer, they had several ideas , 1 take the 50 acres and share crop it out, 2, see if they could get the tower and surrounding land as the deal , or 3 take the 50 acres around the wood where they had buried the 2 kegs of silver the party has. The party decided in the end to take the tower and surrounding lands. they where also told it was believed the tower has a basement or underground section, which the party hadn’t earlier found.

As the party was leaving the magistrate’s office he asked them if they could look into the disappearance of Harold the Hedge mage it seems no one has seen him since last night at the celebration. The Party goes to his shop to look for clues and find that his entire stock of potions is missing, and checking the up stairs they find evidence that his room had actually been cleaned up after some sort of struggle and 3 drops of blood. The party then goes to talk to Esteban the other seller of potions and misc stuff in town. In the curs of questioning him and casting a few spell, they determine the Esteban had some thing to do with Harold disappearance, The party allows him to leave to get the magistrate, to refute their accusations, with Sarx following him with his cloak Esteban after a couple of blocks takes off down an alley and runs off to the forest. Sarx reports back to the party. The Party having searched Esteban’s place find the missing potions bottles from Harold’s place where Esteban had dumped Harold potions in to his bottles to sell. The party reports all this to the magistrate, and he swears out a writ and gives it to the party to bring him in, dead or alive preferably alive.

Going out to the edge of the forest where Esteban fled Sarx begins to track him and they find additional foot prints of the hob nailed boot kind, and find a camp around a fire with 2 tent in the woods Sarx using the cloak goes and check out the camp and finds 5 hob goblins, he returns to the party, and as they are planning their attack, we called it a night

Kingdom of Arn Cast of characters: Gilladian

February 21, 2011

Gilladian.  He is an elf healer/herbalist/alchemist.  He spent most of the time during the wars hidden away in the depths of the Mirkwood, developing his art.  Occasionally he would take commissions to create a special potion or draught and soon became much sought, even though most were turned away.  One of his clients was the father of the Lady Taera Eastvern, who came begging to have his children cured of one of the many plagues still ravaging the lands.  Gilladian was easily able to cure the children.  Remembering Gilladian’s service Lady Taera called upon him to accompany her army as her personal physician and to direct her army’s healers.  Gilladian decided that he had had enough of hiding and joined Lady Taera.

Kingdon of Arn Cast of characters: Daethelan

February 21, 2011

Daethelan

(aka. The Fox of Faerun Forrest, The Duke of Divisions Duchy, Lord Panflyer the Pilpherer, etc.)

 
Appearance & Personality:

He stands roughly five and a half feet tall, with a lion like, wild hair that falls to his shoulder blades, deep blue piercing eyes filled with lively mirth, and a long thin face upon which a perpetual smile is usually seen. His ears, while not pointed like an elves, are vertically long upon his head. When moving about he struts with a confidence and airs of a hunter seeking the latest in diversions; whether it be celebratory, sustinence, or salacious sidebars with saucy seductresses. For him, because of the strong caling of his quarter-fey blood, he sees it as worthy pursuits all in the name of the eternal quest for fun.

The Kingdom of Arn

February 21, 2011

This is the back story for the other game we have running on Saturdays using the Savage world rule

The Kingdom of Arn

The King is dead!

All hail the King!

That is usually how it goes. The old King dies and his son or daughter takes over. However, King Mardell’s wife and children had died in the fire that had sweep the city of Asir three months prior. Many said grief had wilted the King until death was a sweet release. Others said that it was poison. No one now living know the real truth. What is known is that the Council of Seven, so named for the seven Dukes who chaired the Council began in-fighting and pushing forward their right to rule the Kingdom.

One hundred and fifty years of brutal bloodshed and endless battles followed. Each Ducal family insisting that their’s was the true ruler’s bloodline. At first the fights were held to the normal formal standards of battle. Each army meeting on the field of battle and offering truce and mercy to the defeated. Ransom was granted to Nobles and Officers and even to some of the more wealthy Yeoman.

Over time things changed. No one know which battle started it but mercy was denied, ransom was a thing of the past. The losing army was utterly destroyed. What started as fights to assert their right of leadership quickly turned into fights to the death. Each Family vowing revenge upon another from horrors past. The cycle continued until not even the Families remembered why they hated one another. Whole villages were drafted into battles, men , women, even the old and infirm were force to fight for their lives.

It started gradually, a village here, a town there. The Red Death, plague. Entire provinces were wiped out. What the armies didn’t kill, the Red Death took. Soon even the most blood-thirsty Family had no one left to fight. Three of the Seven Families were taken to the last by the Red Death. The plague killed so many so quickly that it burned itself out within twenty years. Those left alive were immune.

It took 70 years before Lady Beechford, one of the remaining Four, started the whole thing over again by moving troops into Asir and declaring herself Queen. The fighting lasted 10 years before attrition took its toll.

It was 3 years ago that Lady Taera Eastvern came out of the Mirkwood.
For 3 years, you have fought and bled for her. One province at a time, you overcame all. You marched into Asir and by unanimous vote of the remaining Four, she was crowned Queen.

This is where you write your story. Lady Taera recruited you to her cause. How did she recruit you? Why did you follow her?

Each of you will be awarded Lands and Titles. You all know why you are being rewarded. Was it for saving her life in battle? Smuggling critical supplies through enemy lines? Single handedly winning a key battle?

Please respond to the group as to who you are and what you did.

If you wish something to be hidden, character motivations or family history. Please send me a direct email at mftroll@earthlink.net 

The game system will be Savage Worlds, I like the free flow of it and its easy for me to GM Fiat stuff 🙂

Any race, any background is valid. I will go over the game system and all that during character creation.

Tonights session

February 19, 2011

HAd a great game tonight.  Had dinner prepared as soon as every one arrived, made spaghetti so we could have a quick dinner then get an early start to the game. We even had exploding chocolate cake for dessert, though I noticed the group didnt’ have much of it since the explosion in the microwave while cooking it. The cake tasted great no loss the less the group eats the more for me and the kids :).

We played in Mikes campaign which uses the savage world rules. We managed to get out-of-town and headed off towards our tracks of land the Queen gave us. Had a bit of fun in a few of the Inns along the road and ended the session tonight after we defeated some bandits at a bridge and with our next session, we shall see what is up with”emperor” Robert and the rest of the bandit band. Can we make a deal to use them to populate our properties, or will we have to defeat them and use the coin we find to help us finance our Land.

Ken

Next week I will be running my B/X game so long as john can still join us, other wise it will be mikes turn again.

Hoarder

February 19, 2011

Hoarder that is one way to describe me. Thankful as I have gotten older and with the help of my wife and family I am learning not to attach to much emotion to stuff.  I am getting better at being able to get rid of trash and junk and also looking at using eBay to get rid of some of my excess stuff I have of gaming.

Dear lord

February 19, 2011

Dear Lord as long as we are cleaning up our current apartment, and throwing out stuff to de clutter our life, do you think you could direct us to a nice 3 bedroom apartment or house for around 1k a month in rent in the next couple of months

Tomorrow

February 7, 2011

Well I shall have to try to catch up on some posts tomorrow

Sometimes…..

February 5, 2011

Some days I fell so tired. I feel as if my souls is stretched so thin. It is at those time I am so very great for for the friends and family I have in my life, and the knowledge of my Heavenly father. While  sometimes the road seems long and hard, I know it will pass, but I will have eternity with my Family and that gives me the boost I need to endure to the end.
