Attempting to assign the role of GM to (572) TaliesinNYC...
(572) TaliesinNYC: Booting '(468) TaliesinNYC' from room...
(468) TaliesinNYC (exit): 23:36
(450) Morti: (uh... welcome back)
(572) DM: (I'm going to need today's log after the session)
** (450) Morti sits staring at the fallen Sceptor. Not quite sure what to do. **
(450) Morti: (I'll save the log and send it to you.)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: `(are any of the humans up?)
(572) DM: (k)
(572) DM: (they're ALL unconscious and sleeping)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: (how many are there?)
(329) Tarl (exit): 23:38
(572) DM: (you estimate about 30 people in this chamber, in addition to yourselves. if Trayn hadn't sacrificed himself or mastered the Scepter, it would've been a massacre.)
(469) Trayn : ((woo hoo... what a guy!))
(451) Atross: (It was being a massacre)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: ((you know those lawful good types))
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane takes a casual look around, and realizes with grim certainty just how dire the situation had been **
(572) DM: (heh. so now, what you need to decide is how to transport all of these people back to Highkeep. keep in mind time of year. it's the middle of winter at the moment.)
(450) Morti: (greyhound?)
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: (rotfl)
(572) DM: (so that means, frozen ground, bitter cold. it hasn't snowed in days but that doesn't mean anything. Highkeep is a port, so the effects of winds blowing in from the sea need to be accounted for.)
(451) Atross: (Obviously we raid the temple for warm clothes)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: ((were there clothes in the barracks?
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: ))
(572) DM: (ophidian scales? not likely.)
** (450) Morti wipes a tear from his abnormal face with the bloodied sleeve of his coat. Then reaching out he takes up the sceptor and stands to returns to the others. **
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Ok.. seems what we need to do is this: try to adequately supply at least a few that are capable of acting as headmen for the rest of the people,and go to town and acquire proper clothing to bring back to them"
(572) DM: (in any event, not enough clothing exists to clothe all of these people, who are all adults, as far as you can determine. and you still haven't explored the rest of the area.)
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Agreed?"
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "And that, my friends, is after we make sure there are no other nasty surrises waiting for them here"
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: *surprises
(451) Atross: "Agreed. No more nasty surprises for us too I hope."
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Well let us rest here"
(450) Morti: (how far are we from the sea?)
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Aye..but before we do any of that, we rest and heal ourselves"
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade consecrates the ground where he stands with a bit of holy water **
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade offers up a prayer of thanks to the War Father **
(572) DM: (10 miles. not that far.)
(450) Morti: (how far from highkeep?)
(572) DM: (10 miles. lol)
(572) DM: (Highkeep sits on the shores of a bay.)
(450) Morti: (equidistant with the shortest path to the shore, huh? okay)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "My Lord, please ask the bringer of light to watch over Trayn, and may he find peace where he is now"
(450) Morti: "We need to go to Highkeep. Get blankets and wagons to bring these people to safety."
(572) DM: (break for food, brb)
(451) Atross: "That means going back past the firebreathing multi-headed monster, right?"
(450) Morti: :scratches head: maybe they took the guard monster with them"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "He performed a great service today, bringing back the lives of so many from thier torture. Let this act of valor and kindness not go unoticed"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "May his name be also be recognized in your hallowed halls my lord War Father"
(469) Trayn : ((oh yeah... Trayn wont be around to tame that fire breather for you))
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "I thank him for his act that saved us all. "
** (450) Morti 's attention is drawn to the war priest's words. Not really sure what to do during a prayer, but wanting to show respect, he simply bows his head and listens reveringly. **
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade lights a little sage and lets the smoke waft up **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "He will be missed...he was a friend"
(450) Morti: :head bowed he looks to the sceptor in his clasped hands, and mutters sincerely, "Thank you, Master Trayn."
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "May the smell of this sweet sage remind us of the good that was accomplished by our brother of Solnor"
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade waves the burning sage inscence around him in a circular motion **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "May it be your will my Lord to see these wretched souls to safety"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "May we find a way to clothes, feed and bring them to a safe place during this bitter time"
(580) Nypaintball (enter): 23:56
(450) Morti: (there's plenty of trolloc to eat)
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane pffers a prayer to the Warfather on Trayn's behalf **
(580) Nypaintball (exit): 23:56
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: *offers
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade holds his holy symbol up and then to his forehead "May the winds of the plains ease your journey Brother Trayn" **
(567) Beau the DM (enter): 23:58
(451) Atross: "He's a good man. I won't forget that he made this possible."
(451) Atross: "Wherever you are, Trayn, thank you."
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Folks, we must rest. we will need our strength to deal wilth our new army of former slaves"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "No doubt we will have to manage this crowd of naked unfed people"
** (450) Morti hugs the sceptor to his chest, as he turns away to look over the slaves. "Will they be alright?" **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "We will see with the help of the war father...well perhaps"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "You need to sleep. keep that scepter safe"
(567) Beau the DM (exit): 00:02
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Je'rar, I will take first watch, you second and Atross third"
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane waits til Rhian is conscious before he'll even entertain the thought of sleep **
(450) Morti: "No rest... need to get back to Highkeep. get transportation for them."
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "NO! Rest now. you will be no good dead!"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "You too je'rar I will watch over her"
(582) Nypaintball (enter): 00:04
(582) Nypaintball (exit): 00:04
(582) Nypaintball (enter): 00:04
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "No"
(582) Nypaintball (exit): 00:04
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Itis my duty"
(450) Morti: "I... I don't think I'll die soon. But these people will if we don't act. If you all watch over them, I can head back to Highkeep to get help. Verstis and maybe Bulghvus could accompany... if I find them...."
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "And it is my duty to make sure you are alive to protect her"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Tthey also need their rest morti or they will not be able to travel
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Take advantage of this time as they sleep , so should you morti
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "I will rest soon enough"
(572) DM: (Verstis and Bulghvus are not here. I had Verstis leave the group as soon as the yuanti were dispatched. Bulghvus fled if you recall.)
(450) Morti: (I mean he'd probably meet with them on his wa back up)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade (whispering): trying to talk some sense into these guys
(572) DM: (so what's happening?)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Well fine, if ye want to keep watch, then it is I who will sleep
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: (the group needs to rest)
** (450) Morti fidgets in place, wanting to go, but not about to disobey Rainur. Letting out a sigh he checks about the wounded slaves, not in the mood to sleep just yet. **
(450) Morti: (Morti will stay up for the first watch, near death experience and all... not in the mood to lay down)
** (451) Atross seems numb and distant. Like he's looking at somewhere else. **
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, as Morti goes to sleep, I need you to make a Will save.
(450) Morti: (if the wounded ever come to at all, use my three healings from asflag's flask on the worst off ones)
(572) DM: (ok)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: Will save: [1d20+7] -> [8,7] = (15)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: 15
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, not now of course. just later.
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, and in the future, whisper it to me
(584) Nypaintball (enter): 00:11
(584) Nypaintball (exit): 00:11
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, when Morti goes to sleep, you see for a moment that the image of Drenla hovers over him. The image stands over him, hovering silently, watching. No one else seems to see this.
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade mutters something **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade (whispering): in elven "He was very brave today Drenla"
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, It's like he's always been present. He didn't just appear out of nowhere. Or perhaps its because you've just begun paying attention. :)
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, Drenla acknowledges your statement with a silent nod of assent.
** (450) Morti lays offers up his winter coat, his blanket, and his bloodoed jacket as some semblance of cover for three 'lucky' slaves as they sleep. Not getting to sleep right away, he stays up trying to make the slaves as comfortable as possible **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade (whispering): I am glad to see that you are always with him
(525) Rainur Swiftblade (whispering): He is a good boy...really, but a little stubborn, like another mage I know
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, The image of Drenla walks silently amongst the freed slaves, and then returns to watch over Morti.
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, Drenla smiles slightly and goes back to maintaining his vigil.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade (whispering): "I do not know how we are going to bring so many to safety, but I guess it is one step at a time
(525) Rainur Swiftblade (whispering): good to see that you still travel with us friend
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, Drenla nods, and settles down beside Morti.
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane patiently waits til Rhian comes to **
** (572) Rhian Aes Sedai wakes....eventually **
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: My Warder....so I see we were successful.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Happy to see you back Miss Rhian"
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Rhian.."
** (572) Rhian Aes Sedai sits up weakly **
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane picks her up in his arms,grateful that she's ok **
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: Ah, peace. Peace be your sword, Je'rar. My thanks for your aid as always.
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane then gently,eases her back down **
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "For you, sweet lady,ti's an honor"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "I have some bergemot drink if you desire, it is not hot, but it sooths none the less."
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Rhian, ye may have it if you wish"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: My mission then, here is done. We shall leave, you and I, to the Tower. We shall return, but for now the Wheel shall turn without us to aid them.....
** (450) Morti looks back Rhian, pleased that she rises, but his attention stays to the slaves **
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: My thanks, Rainur. For you, you have a hard road before you but I think you shall manage well enough. You, Atross, and Morti. (smiles gently)
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Aye my lady... I look forward to our many travels together"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: You should all rest.
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "I wanted to, but found that I could not, not until I knew you were alright"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Well, Rhian, If ye are not going to take me up on the bergemot drink, then I fear that I shall drink alone"
** (572) Rhian Aes Sedai smiles. "I thank you....but really, you should rest. We still have to escape from this place. There is the matter of that guardian, the fire hydra." **
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "The what?"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "There must be another way out...snakes always have several holes"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: The creature that Trayn pacified, remember?
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: Well, actually there are a few ways out.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "I am afraid that I do not have that skill"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: All three of them are equally dangerous.
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Ugh.. ok.. come on men, the lady said rest"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: The first is the way we entered.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: and face the hydra
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: The second lies through the chamber of the orb.
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane finds a spot near her,curls up, and fretfully manages to doze off **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: chamber of the orb?
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: The third lies through this passage, to the chamber of the lake. Whilst I lay sleeping, I saw in my dreams the means of escaping this place.
** (450) Morti listens idly, plopping to a seat nearby **
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: You were there, I believe. The chamber with the sphere, showing a hall shrouded in darkness, pierced by a shaft of light.
(450) Morti: "Yeah, what was that orb thing?"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: The orb is a method of magickal transport to another place.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "The lake will give us fresh water"
(450) Morti: 0.o "Safe place...?"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: I did not say it was safe. It is a method of transport to another place, elsewhere, far from here.
(450) Morti: :nods: "Probably the way for the Yuan-ti to get to their homeland"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "the lake can also give us fish to feed our people
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: I do not know where exactly, but I do know the location is far.
(450) Morti: "Do underground lakes have fish?"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: what dangers lie in the lake?
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: The chamber of the lake leads to a cave that lies far under the earth, in the realm of the Sunless Lands.
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: There, presumably, lies a way out but a convoluted path. And the dangers in the Sunless Lands make Trollocs seem easy.
(450) Morti: "Right then... go with the threat we know. Fir hydra it is.... Why doesn't that comfort me?"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: Yes, Morti. Blind fish,
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Hm, if we travel underground we are protected from the elements
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: But you are not protected from ilythi'iri and their kin.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: how close will that path lead to highkeep?
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: I do not know.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: Well any way we go there is danger
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: I shall not go with you to a place where ilythi'iri rule.
(587) Ari (enter): 00:35
(450) Morti: "Passed the hydra and back to Highkeep... it's the only way..."
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Rhian,that is the place I saw in my vision"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: Where? What place?
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "The chamber with the shaft of light"
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "When I gazed into the crystal"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: Ah....
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: Well, I shall aid you as best as I can, but my Sister calls to me from the Tower, and to her I must hie as soon as I can. Je'rar is my Warder and he shall be accompanying me.
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: "Aye..when do we set off?"
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: That remains to be seen (glancing at Rainur)
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: Sleep now. Sleep. When you have rested, we shall see what Rainur decides.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Are we safe at least at that lake? I would liove to feed them and give them drink before we go"
** (541) Je'Rar Ogrebane *ZZzzzzzzZZZZzzZZZ* **
(572) Rhian Aes Sedai: See for yourself, Rainur....if you must.
** (450) Morti settles down to sleep near the slaves, keeking an eye over them as he fades to much needed slumber **
(450) Morti: keeping even**
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "We do not need to take the path into the under realm"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "I just want to feed them and get them drink"
** (572) Rhian Aes Sedai meditates **
(451) Atross: "I'll go with you to look."
(572) DM: (stopping at 1:15 (in 30 minutes) because I'd like to talk while David is here)
(541) Je'Rar Ogrebane: (ok)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Ok atrross, a Quick look and then to bed"
(572) DM: (ok, remember, only Atross and Rainur are awake)
(572) DM: As you leave the chamber, (map should be up)
** (451) Atross readies his bow. **
(593) Sauro (enter): 00:44
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Stay in shadows and do no not make a sound
(593) Sauro (exit): 00:44
** (451) Atross moving stealthily. **
(451) Atross: Hide Skill Check: [1d20+5-2] -> [7,5,-2] = (10) (includes Armor Penalty of -2)
(451) Atross: Move Silently Skill Check: [1d20+5-2] -> [12,5,-2] = (15) (includes Armor Penalty of -2)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: Move Silently Skill Check: [1d20+2] -> [11,2] = (13)
(572) DM: you enter a vast cave dominated by the placid waters of an underground lake. The walls of this chamber are lined with phosphorescent sickly green mold however, interspersed with skeletons chained to the walls and hanging from stalactites. A rock strewn path leads to a small cave to one side of the lake.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: Hide Skill Check: [1d20+2] -> [6,2] = (8)
(572) DM: The entire chamber it seems, was one vast holding area for a few hundred Trollocs. Now all of them are unclothed injured humans, unconscious...although a few are wakening slowly.
(572) DM: (area M is the chamber of the lake. Area P is the cave.)
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade tends to the injured **
(572) DM: Immediately to your left, as you enter the chamber of the lake, is a gong, next to a wall length mirror.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Attross, change of plans
(572) DM: (that's area O)
(572) DM: The mirror is intact. A brass mallet lies at the foot of the gong.
(572) DM: Other passages exit the chamber, apart from the one you used to enter. Presumably, they lead to other areas of the temple complex.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade (whispering): anything on the gong or mirror writing etc?
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, runes and glyphs
whispering to Rainur Swiftblade, on the gong
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade goes to one onf the waking people **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Relax, relax"
(572) slave: Where am I? What is this place? (tries to cover himself) Who are you?
(572) slave: (horrified look around)
(587) Ari (exit): 00:55
(572) slave: I remember being a vile creature...
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Ye were taken as a slave and were changed to a vile creature. We have come to resue all of you here. I am Brother Rainur Swiftblade"
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Be calm. Who are you and what do you remember of this place"
(572) slave: Not much....just being led around in these chains (holds up his hands which are in shackles), and being told....being....being told to kill and eat...(covers his face and begins sobbing)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Now, now...that is all over. Solnor and the War Father have seen that you are free from this torture. What did you do before you came here?
(572) Marietta: I remember (cries)...being a lioness...and mauled a group of children for the pleasure of a snake priestess. (cries and sobs)
(572) DM: Other people awaken and horrified cries echo around the chamber.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "She is dead, we have dealt with her readily"
(572) Borwyn: I was a baker. But then there was a fire in Tolmara, and my home was caught in the blaze. I was homeless for a time, and it was then that I attended a meeting of a group that called itself the Fellowship. And that was the last that I remember.
** (450) Morti hops up from near sleep, at the sounds of the cries. Warily he rises and moves into the next room to inspect. His own deformed face on dsiplay, he chews his lip nervously as he watches the terrified people come about **
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Good people, allow me to introduce myself. I am Rainur Swiftblade and this Atross. We are here to free you all but I am afraid that this is the first step in a long journey we will take.
(572) Marietta: I was a tailor, in Highkeep. I lived frugally, but fell behind in my guild dues. I was let go and had the ill fortune to offend a servant of the Tempest. I was thrown in a gaol cell, and that is the last I remember, until now.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Others in my company are in the next room. We will need your help in order to safely leave this place."
(572) Forsyth: Are all of the creatures dead? (is embarassed)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "First, all those with military service please go to this end of the room" Point to the left
(450) Morti: "They left..." offers meekly to Forsyth:
(572) Forsyth: Certainly. I was a guard at one time, who had the ill luck to offend the Tempest. Her justice (spits out the word) left me for dead and then I became a slave. Now I wish to revenge myself on her!
(595) Mytho (enter): 01:06
(572) Forsyth: (salutes Rainur) and walks with dignity to the area.
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Are there any clerics here? Stand here"
(595) Mytho (whispering): Hi, I'm guessing you've already started? Any chance of adding people?
(572) DM: Several more follow Forsyth's lead.
** (525) Rainur Swiftblade is starting to get a headache **
whispering to Mytho, this is a long term campaign
(595) Mytho (whispering): Right, sorry then.
(595) Mytho (exit): 01:07
(450) Morti: (doubt anyone here have actual cleric power Al)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: (but they can tend to the sick)
(572) Artos: 'Tis hard, my lord, to heal the sick without symbols of any sort.
(450) Morti: (hai hai, might want to ask who's trained in healing then)
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Come now we are not in Highkeep, no one will be punished, I need healers"
(572) DM: Artos and a handful follow Rainur's lead.
(572) Artos: Do ye have any clothing with which we can clothe ourselves?
(525) Rainur Swiftblade: "Allright...ye who are skilled in majicka over here" ::turns to Arton:: "I'm afraid that your captors were not so generous"
(450) Morti: :scratches head: "Perhaps upstairs among the serpent men's belongings"
(572) DM: (and on this note, we'll stop)
