Booking Passage

As Remembered by Cory

Players Present:

Cory: Ven Dyagur’am
Josh: Frosch Zauberer
Roland: Sylus Dhred

Summary

  • Ven and Sylus wake up Frosch and tell him what they found out from Dorne; that they have to meet up with him at the docks at midnight.
  • It’s about ten o’clock PM so they decide to kill time in the public square where they see a large gathering around a bonfire. They approach a group of Jhesori gentlemen, and speak with a man named Gosha, who recognizes the name Freddy, and says that “not everyone leaves on a log”
  • Gosha retrieves his friend Idhale who had gotten Freddy passage 3 weeks back. Idhale speaks to the party, saying that the longest way to get to Ydar is by land, the fastest way to get there is around the southern coast of Wren but is also the most dangerous; and in terms of smuggling the most conspicuous way is through the Isles.
  • Before the party can secure passage from via shady means from Idhale, they were instructed to steal a scroll from the First Hand‘s quarters within a week’s time.
  • The party notices a bearded man with a ponytail watching them intently. With not a lot of time left before their midnight meeting, they decide to head out of the square in the direction of their lodgings, and then cut through some side streets to ensure they weren’t followed to the docks.
  • The three arrive at the docks and meet Dorne by some barrels. Dorne tells them the information that Intep will be interested in: Dorne was to assist in the theft of a scroll from Intep’s quarters later that very night.
  • While the party deliberated about how they should get the information to the First Hand and/ or prevent the burglary, Gosha, along with the man with the ponytail and beard and a third man showed up and ambushed them!
  • Ponytail pulled out a blade glowing with power that forced Ven back about ten feet.
  • Sylus cast a spell or something.
  • Frosch became enrobed in a watery aura and stepped off the dock to walk on water before freezing the third guy, who was readying a ranged weapon.
  • Ven tried to land a few hits on both Ponytail and Gosha, scoring a strike on Ponytail but missing both his hits against Gosha, almost being struck by Gosha’s superheated hammer, saved narrowly by the protective orb gifted to him by Frosch as the hammer slid down the side of the misty aura with a hiss of steam from hot metal.
  • Dorne used his Cower In Fear ability to great effect.

Reunion (Part III)

As Remembered by Cory

Players Present:

Cory: Ven Dyagur’am
Josh: Frosch Zauberer
Roland: Sylus Dhred

Summary

  • Frosch did some studying of local gods at the Temple district in Mirth, found out about who each god was and what they embodied
  • Ven did some peoplewatching around town and noticed someone in a tavern called “Pint and Porter” place a coin on the counter and walk through a curtain on the wall. People around here don’t much use coins.
  • In following weeks, Ven notices more odd mannerisms in the way certain people talk around the city.
  • Sylus Returns to Mirth and meets up with Ven and Frosch. Ven observes as Frosch and Sylus catch up. Sylus explains that he got rid of the skull and found a brain jar and met a god who was eaten by wolves.
  • The three decide they want to go find the water god in the Ydar region, but the fastest way to get there is by boat. They petition Mael for fast transport to the Jhesori Outpost, and she says the best she can do is point the party to the stables for mounts and supplies. She mentions she’s running low on Storm Pearls, which are used for making antiquities and can be used to influence the weather. She had just finished meeting with a diplomat from the Illidjori continent. He was big and huge and white haired with a big sword, and he ordered an Antiquity from the bar. (We probably should have talked to him.)
  • Ven poses as Mael to get free mounts and supplies for the trek to the Jhesori Outpost, and they depart.
  • They meet up with Sylus’ old buddy Intep Tafiri to try and secure passage on a ship to the Ydar region of Wren. Intep says that if they can provide information, service, and materials he considers to be valuable, he may be able to get them there. In the meantime, they have a place to board while they’re at the outpost.
  • The tired wittle fwoggy decides to sleep for the night, and Sylus and Ven go for a walk to explore the town. They come across a young man who is struggling with the last of his workload, and help him to stabilize it. His name is Dorne and upon shaking hands with the two of them, Sylus remembers something about his past. Ven sees Sylus zonk out for a moment and asks him if he’s okay, to which the reply is “I think i remember…”
  • Sylus and Ven are invited by Dorne to dine at the mess hall with him. The food is exotic and fantastic, and Frosch is asleep but still jealous. The two tell Dorne of their interest in the awakening of the gods, and the clocks (by which Dorne is very impressed; timekeeping devices are apparently fantastical magicks to this boy’s people) and their predicament of needing to find something to satisfy Intep so they can make their journey. Dorne tells them that he doesn’t know what materials he would want, but he knows that Ven’s shipbuilding prowess would come in handy as services go, and that he himself has information that would be valuable to Intep. He instructs the team to meet him at midnight at the place where they met.

The City of Storms

As remembered by Cory
Players Present:

Chanbo: Abigail & Abner Sirius
Chuck: Brae
Garth: Mark V
Jonathan: João
Mike: Hjaldir

Summary

  • The party made it to a town in the Inos region, and went to a tavern. João inquired about busing tables to earn some wine. The rest of the party talk to the people in the tavern about why no one around believes in their regions god, or any other for that matter. Hjaldir wants it to be their Shattered God. Mark Ignores this.
  • João earns his two bottles of wine and high tails it toward he shipyard. Abby follows once they notice he’s gone.
  • Joao offers the wine as payment to go out to as deep water as the ship’s crew is willing to go. Abby follows on a more different ship.
  • João gets out to where he feels is a comfortable depth and talks to a scary evil jar brain The evil jar brain wants to not be thrown in the water, and Abby arrives and doesn’t want him to because the scary evil jar brain could help them maybe possibly,. but João does it anyway.
  • The sky turns dark and a storm starts a-brewin’, and the previously peaceful waters begin to churn dangerously. The party on the shore goes out to see what’s going on, and the rest of the town has gathered to see this storm build. Mark goes full evangelist and convinces the townsfolk that Inos is upset and that they need to pray to her to quell the raging maelstrom. Hjaldir is frustrated cause they were supposed to be their converts. The townsfolk give it a shot.
  • Abby, Joao, and the first ship’s crew are thrown from the ship into the water. Abby swims toward shore underwater on an upward diagonal, eventually surfacing. João can’t feel his connection to his patron, but tries harder to pray to it. Still can’t. He travels back toward shore underwater. His old one patron and the brain jar entity are clearly going at it and the situation’s taking its full concentration.
  • A colored light appears in the storm and shines into the water, “as Inos, awakened by the prayers of the townsfolk, intervenes and helps the old one to defeat the brain jar guy.” The town rejoices. Hjaldir does not.

The Return to Mirth

As remembered by Cory

Players present:
Chuck: Brae
Cory: Ven Dyagur’am
Garth: Mark V
Josh: Frosch Zauberer
Mike: Hjaldir

Summary

  • The party has spent the week in Northshire helping out around the town
  • Ven progressed with surprising proficiency in his training in the First Mirror, to the delight of Nylus, and is gifted a Mirror Pendant
  • Brae and Hjaldir spent time healing, during which time Hjaldir found a willing human mount for adventuring purposes, as well as converting several others to their religion.
  • Frosch spent a majority of the week at the temple district, learning about Xymeus
  • Mark V did a thing, too! i just forgot what. Sorry, Garth.
  • The party decides to take a southeasterly route through the mountains to avoid further confrontations with rock worms and basilisks, coming upon a cave along the way in which an automoton is found mining gems, along with several different sizes of humanoid footprints. The party succeeds in mining a few gems for themselves, and gets out in order to avoid conflict.
  • The party makes it through the mountains to a clearing in which they see large birds descending upon them. The birds turn out to be Rocs, with mechanical or cybernetic implants in their eyes and heads. The party attempts to avoid being taken, unsuccessfully. The party is dropped in the Roc’s nest, which is built into the side of a mountain and has a door into the mountain.
  • Frosch is able to get the door open and the party descends a ladder 250ft into a hallway that leads to a foundry. Many different sized automatons similar to the one seen mining are in the foundry smithing. Huge Golem sized automatons act as security measures and react to parts on conveyor belts being touched.
  • the party jumps on the conveyor belt, careful to not touch any parts and follows it through the factory. The automatons in the different rooms all seem to be assembling clockwork humanoids, animals, and vehicles.
  • There is a room with many blueprints (including one for the Roc headpiece) and 7 small clocks on the wall under a large clock
    Large Clock reads, date and time, 6184-2-1-9-03
    3 of the 7 clocks are lit
    - 1st clock unlit, symbol of bowl spilling water
    - 2nd clock unlit, symbol of small tree blooming
    - 3rd clock lit, symbol of Mountain, hour reading 1
    - 4th clock lit, symbol of cup with fluid spilling over lip, hour reading 3
    - 5th clock unlit, symbol of lips breathing, wind curling out of mouth
    - 6th clock unlit, symbol of 3 candles
    - 7th clock lit, symbol of antlers, hour reading 2
  • Brae attempts to communicate with an automaton, which elicits a hearty laugh from the foreman of the foundry. He makes himself seen and known to be Xymeus, god of the Mountain.
    The team talks to Xymeus and convinces him that they should be allowed to leave with their lives, but not before he explains the meaning behind the clocks, that Amos is his brother, and that Mael is in fact Amos’ daughter and that the reason she looked so upset at Amos’ letter is that she wasn’t thrilled to be hearing from her father.
    Xymeus of Wren explains that the clocks correspond to the existence of the Gods of Wren, and activate as they awaken. However, they are not going in order. The existence of the gods corresponds to the faith of the people of Wren. Idar, the goddess of water should have been first to awaken.
    Omunhall is where gods met to discuss things greater than man.
    62 years ago, something called “The Wipe” made all the god clocks go dim. Man and mankind created a situation of non-belief. a failsafe was built prior to the wipe that has not functioned properly, resulting in the out-of-order awakening of the gods. Xymeus has only been active for a few weeks.
    The party offers to relay a message for Xymeus to Amos stating that the First and Second clocks have not yet turned on.
  • Mark V asks for an upgrade from Xymeus, who says “only if i can take you apart and put you back together.” the group sticks around for a few days until this is complete. during this time, Ven inquires about ways to prevent people from using robots for evil. Xymeus, who does not deal in thinking robots, has no advice to give. Mark V receives his upgrade as well as a restored memory prior to the events at the World Memory Facility.
    Brae inquires about an upgrade as well, though she warns his that she is half organic. Xymeus offers to, and proceeds to disassemble and reassemble her organic half. She also regains memory with her upgrade.
    *The team is sent by Xymeus via [pneumatic] tube back to Mirth.

What the Hand Holds

Players Present:
Sylus Dhred
João
Abigail & Abner Sirius

Summary:

  • Sylus, João, and Abby travel through the valconoe pass, searching a large expanse of canyons for a hot spring that resembles a hand.
  • With time, the party finds the spring.
  • Sylus climbs down the side of the canyon. João finds a chain bolted to the wall of the canyon that has been rusted and broken. He climbs down the chain and his party members help him the rest of the way. Later he realizes how easy it was for him to reach the bottom of the canyon. Abby flies down.
  • Sylus checks the water’s temperature and takes damage.
  • Over time, our adventurers realize that the amount and pigment of light produced by the water are indicative of the water’s temperature.
  • Sylus throws the sojourner skull into the water…nothing.
  • The party is able to find moments of opportunity (when the water temp drops) to examine the hot spring.
  • They find the following…
    1) Five magical/mechanical cloaks comprised of obsidian and bone.
    2) A set of two runic circles at the center of the spring’s floor.
    3) A skeleton sitting at the center of the runic circles (it’s head is the sojourner skull that Sylus had thrown into the lake). The skeleton wears a chain around it’s neck.
  • After fixing/jumping the clocks, each clock begins to light up and rotate slowly before all of the water drains from the spring through drains that line the ground.
  • When the water drains, the party notices the following…
    1) The clocks have all stopped on a specific series of numbers (6122_2_1_9_03).
    2) The skeleton that had once been sitting is now standing above an obsidian glass plate set into the center of the runic circles.
  • Sylus speaks the name “Ridley Wright”… The skeleton touches him on the shoulder, steps backwards, and touches the obsidian plate that immediately turns to dust, revealing a book that the party had previously noticed.
  • Upon examination, Sylus notices that the pages of the book are blank; however, just after opening the book, a story (that feels strangely familiar) is conjured in his mind.
  • As Sylus recites the story (see The Gift of the Sicrum) aloud, two things happen…
  • First, the words appear on the blank pages of the book.
  • Second, large sectioned panels on the ground beneath them drop as the story progresses, slowly revealing a large spiral staircase.
  • The group descends to the bottom of the steps where they find a door.
  • The door is covered in archaic etchings similar to those seen on the bed of the spring. More recently words have been chiseled into the surface of the door. The words read as follows…

We need not breath, nor blood to keep
We take no rest while others sleep
And though with time we age and change
While others die, our kind remains

End Session.

A Summons to the Jhesori Outpost

Players Present:
Sylus Dhred
João
Abigail & Abner Sirius

Summary:

  • Sylus is summoned to the Jhesori outpost to the east on the continent of Wren.
  • He meets with a man by the name of Intep Tafiri, whose rank/title is “The first tide to Wren.”
  • Intep informs Sylus that he’s been summoned to the outpost at the request of a visitor who has recently arrived at the outpost. The two exchange conversation, answering each other’s questions.
  • Sylus is brought to a tent where he meets João and Abigail & Abner Sirius. João knows about Sylus’s Sojourner’s Skull and is requesting that he join the two on a journey to the border of the region of Kira. João reports that he can decipher the map on the inside of the skull, and that there is a particular item of interest in it for Sylus should he help.
  • Sylus is reluctant to join these two strangers until João mentions the name “Ridley Wright.” Sylus seems immediately convinced.
  • The group visits Intep to stock up on potions, rations, and a map before embarking. Abby walks around a tent and João apologizes for her strange behavior.
  • As the party hits the road, Abby explains to Sylus that she has come to Wren in search for her friend, Mark V. She explains the events that occurred before Mark had gone missing…informing him that she’d been on the continent of Ankh-Sokari to set up a meeting between Mark V and Brae. The meeting had been raided by a squad of Legion Killbots, at which point Mark V sacrificed himself to save Brae. That night, Brae and Abby held a private funeral for Mark V. During this ceremony, Mark V, whose parts had been damaged beyond repair, woke from the dead. The next morning both Mark and Brae were missing. Abby set out for Wren the moment Mark V’s locator indicated his location (ie. when he set foot on Wren for the first time).
  • After days of travel, the party is attacked by a small pack of dire wolves.
  • The party kills the wolves.
  • Abby transforms from a boy to a girl.
  • With no time for explanation, a man in a mask walks past the adventurers, touching each wolf on the head. The wolves rise, one by one, their eyes entirely white. The stranger never speaks, but does appear to pause and nod in response to particular questions.
  • The wolves, no longer hostile, wait patiently for the stranger to join where they’ve gathered. The masked man lowers to his knees and holds out his arms.
  • The wolves eat the man alive, still he makes no sound.
  • When all that is left of him is bones, the wolves assemble these remains to form the shape of the mask with antlers that he had previously worn. Sylus remembers this image being engraved above one of the doors in Omünhall.
  • Each wolf approaches a party member, offering themselves as mounts for the time.
  • The part rides the rest of the way to the border of Kira. While the party members take several long rests on the backs of the wolves, the pack does not seem to tire. The wolves drop them off at the passage between two volcanoes.

  • after more riding without altercation, the party arrives in Northshire, a self sufficient and quaint smaller town.
  • upon arriving in town the party heads straight for an Inn, where they inquire with the inkeep Quentin about a man named “Fenton”. They are promptly told that Fenton is, in fact, a well liked 14 year old boy who showed up in town around six years prior, who does odd jobs around town, trying to help where he can, and that he’s so personable that he’s the only one in town anyone can say has ever spent any time with Nylus.
  • they further inquire about Nylus, and are told that Nylus is the primary benefactor of Northshire and, much like the rest of the town, would be found at the wedding celebration in the Ampitheater in Northshire’s Temple District.
  • Hjaldir Makes a joke publicly (but still telepathically? i think?), almost giving away theirself, but Quentin dismisses it as his own internal monologue and proceeds to take credit for the joke out loud.
  • Quentin tasks the party with transporting alcohol to the wedding of Katrine Borden and Philip Whitestone. The color of House Whitestone is, obviously, blue.
  • Ven asks Fenton, in his usher’s uniform along side two other ushers, where he could locate a man named Nylus, to which he was told “Good luck finding him!” Ven is informed that Nylus does not want to be found, but Fenton (whose neck will be had by Nylus for telling them) agrees to give a hint if Ven wins at a shell game.

  • Brae convinces Fenton to give them one more hint through means of a display of a magic trick.
  • Fenton is pleased.
  • Fenton gives the final hint: Nylus will be the last one to leave, but he likely won’t help you if you wait till the end of the night to find him, so you’d better get a move on.

  • Ven is introduced to Rysa by Brae. Ven chats her up for a bit, finds out she was a fellow nurse there when Philip and Katrine met, and drops some pretty strong hintage about the Way of the Five Mirrors, but Rysa doesn’t seem to know what he’s talking about or even be phased.
  • Ven goes and talks to Dr. Strauss about how he met the bride and groom. He knew the bride as she was one of his nurses, and was Philip’s overseeing doctor. When asked who else was integral to the curing of Philip’s illness, it was brought to light that Fenton had been the one to gather the various materials needed to succeed in the cure.
  • Ven turns and sees Fenton, who proceeds to walk out of the ampitheater. Ven follows.
  • Ven catches up to Fenton and tells Fenton that everyone they’ve talked to is ever grateful for the grand celebration that Fenton has funded. Ven asks Fenton to instruct him in the Way of the First Mirror.

Summary:

  • The party rises from a long rest in the forest they’d retreated to in the previous session.
  • At first glance it appears to be night, however the group slowly realizes that the clouds in the sky are devoid of light (not a natural phenomena by anyone’s understanding).

A game is afoot

A continuation of session 1
Recapped by Charrrrrrrles

Players present:
Garth – Mark V
Josh – Frosch Zauberer
Roland – Sylus Dhred
Chuck – Brae

Summary:
- The party leaves the main acquisition room, and pass through a doorway marked “Employee Entrance: World Memory Museum”
- After walking through an employee locker room, they find themselves in a museum gallery room, face-to-face with two security guards.
- Brae and Mark V, having entered the room first, encounter the guards and do their best to avoid physical confrontation.
- They do not avoid physical confrontation.
- After a round or so, Frosch and Sylus enter and the battle ends, with a decisive victory for our intrepid heroes. They do not kill the guards.
- One has been largely incapacitated by a shard of ice from Frosh. The other, is ready for questioning.
- He doesn’t know much. He tells them that they’re part of one of 17 facilities throughout the world operated by the World Memory Facilities- one on each continent. They are in the Wren facility.
- He does not know the nature of the crisis that the still blaring alarms repeat “Crisis: Wren Facility” “Crisis: Brande Facility” “Crisis: Global”
- He does not believe the party members waking are the reason for the crisis
- He explains, as best he can, that the world memory serves as somewhat of a safe-keeper of the ‘memories’ of the world. (Chuck’s quasi- interpretation: the World Memory Facilities seems to be part custodian, part record keeper, part editor of the historical events of Omerün. Something about the way the guard mentioned that there were multiple memories, lead Brae to ask if the world had ever ended – the guard did not know how to answer.
- The group left the guards in the basement, after dismantling their radios and weapons went to intercept the other members of the museum’s security detail – having been told that Guard Captain Hale may have more answers, and that she was looking for the party members.
- The party returned to the elevator, and on the way to the Field Offices level, stopped in the lab, where they erased their files. Freddy was gone.
- They discovered a note, presumably from Gron, that cheeky fuck, telling them that escape was possible through the employee exit on the Field Offices level.
- The group departs to the field offices.
- The elevator opens to the field offices.
- The field offices are just fucking lousy with guards, led by Guard Captain Hale, and flanked by Freddy, the cowardly worm.
- Mark V charges Hale.
- The other party members leave the elevator and a very long fight begins.
- Mark V, Sylus, and Frosch are all, at different moments, incapacitated. Through the course of battle they are revived, and eventually overtake the security force.
- During the fight the group learns that Sylus is a necromancer, and foes killed by him are reincarnated and fight at his command.
- After the security forces are all eliminated, the group notes that Freddy is gone.
- They exit the the facility through the ‘employee exit door’ and walk out into an open forest.
- They look behind them to the door, and note that it has disappeared inside of a tree – the party deduces that they have been teleported far from the World Memory Facilities and have found safety.
- They see in the distance a great cathedral.
- They chose to first take a long rest.
- The group levels up.
