Different tastes

July 24, 2014

It is interesting the different tastes people in the same hobby have. I have been listing things for sale at Arioch’s Attic,  and the things that people just have to have is very different. Somethings i didn’t think have value, get snapped up immediately and things I thought everyone would want languish and get picked up for the minimum bid. It is kind of cool though that while we may be lumped together by society we really are individuals

For the sake of others…..

February 17, 2012

Many times in my life I have made choices, not because it is what I thought I should do,but I did it for the sake of others. Do other dress in a certain style or avoid mentioning certain hobbies for fear that might ber a bad example to others?

I remember years ago the shock on Bishop McCord face when he had stopped by the house to visit me and my mom, and he discovered I had my ear pierced. It had actually been pierced for about 2 years,but i just never wore an earing at church on Sundays or to the temple. The funny or sad part is I didnt’ wear the earing so much because I felt I shouldn’t to be reverent,but I did so mainly so as not to be a bad example to the youth. I didnt’ want to be part of the line” but mr. X has an earing and he is Elders quorum counselor so why can’t I” Even now as I let my hair grow out a bit, I wonder about the example I set,but on the other hand I have to be true to who I am, and also show that hair length doesn’t reflect faith,but it is what is in the heart and soul that we hold our Love of Christ and God. We can be an individual and have our likes and dislikes, hobbies or look and still come together to serve and worship our heavenly Father and His Son Jesus

Free will is the greatest gift we have from our Heavenly Father,but it is also the thing we to exercise wisely. I pray I may always use mine for the Good of our Heavenly Father, and promote the path he wants me to.

Noteworthy NPC’s: Connolly Hardinger – Possibly corrupt politician accused of wrongful practices now employing the group.Abe Doorcan – Newsvid reporter who has unearthed evidence of  Hardinger’s corruption. Ambrosia Veisse – Gorgeous overpaid “administrative assistant” with an air of mystery about her. “Stevie” Steelcase – “Independent” helper to the Hardinger political machine, known to our group who’s dissapeared and is most likely dead.

  Events Log – 2012/01/07: Connections: Each of or group has, at some point, worked for Connolly Hardinger; a politician on board the orbiting city with a well publicized program to clean up governmental corruption and ironically is now accused of the same. A netcaster named Abe Doorcan has been providing a majority of the evidence. Daniel Pullman was hired to smuggle something. Carrol Howard was hired to enforce for a trusted “independent agent” of the politician named “Stevie” Steelcase, and “Bail” was a “Funding Consultant” employed by the politicians group to convince those with wealth to fund Hardinger’s campaign. – “Stevie” Steelcase missed his early morning appointment with Daniel. Instead, three street punks hired by a distinctively garbed man to attack Mr. Pullman show. Carol shows up in time to turn the tables. On the leader was a 50cr card then acquired. All killed by Mr. Howard.
– Man later discovered as a close associate of Ms. Veisse’s, no name given, visited Bails looking for “Stevie” around that time. Having traced Stevie’s blood spattered Omnicomm to a trash bin just outside Bails place with Bails address still on it, the others pay him a visit. Recent incoming calls are traced to Ms.Veisse, from the night before, and Mr. Pullman. – Bail makes a call, learns Ms. Veisse is off station, and arranges a meet with her employer Mr. Hardinger. Hardinger is a little evasive but provides what answers he can to the question of his assistant, the mystery man serving her, and Mr. Steelcase. – He hires the group to move a container Pullman earlier smuggled to the planet to a new location; something Stevie was supposed to arrange with them. The politician will take care of the cost of transportation planet side and back as well as pay them for their services. They’ll need to pick up something from Clark Lewis though; a local small time merchant.

They also found a bed room that they assumed belonged to a wizard, as they found 2 scroll in ivory cases and a spell book fired trapped with 3 third level spells in it. they also discover a portable hole in a trunk variation, with a twist that the stuff is stored exactly where the case was placed, so if you don’t’ put the case back petty much exactly where it was you can’t access the caches of loot. so now the party is wondering how many caches there may be stored all through the dungeon  etc.

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.
