[Ma 9th, 1636TH]
[Time: 2:45 pm]
Raddok watches in some consternation
Kiet being lifted by the Vily to the specified
tree. He had told Kiet that he could climb some,
but usually it was cliffs & rock, not trees. He
silently thinks he can, but suddenly the Vily
carries Kiet away before he has a chance to say
anything. When Kiet returns holding the brass
box, Raddok's eyes widen, & he quickly faces the
Vily, bows deeply, falling upon one knee in deep
respect & offers thanks for the help. He then
quickly follows Dorhak and the others, carrying
all his gear, & telling Kiet that he does have
some climbing ability, but he's usually used it
for cliffs, not trees. He apologizes that he
didn't have a chance to tell him earlier; he had
been focused upon the amulet, a new experience for him.
He asks how long it will be before
they can stop and study all the things that have
been found. Does the key fit the box? Wasn't
there a bag or pouch found somewhere? What was in
it? He says to Kiet & Dorhak that the smallest
items might hold clues if all the information was
shared among them all. He, for one, was feeling
rather stupid at the moment, & mutters to himself
if he could climb a tree although he had not
tried in a couple years. His last experience had
been helping to cut down a dying tree that was
dropping dead branches onto a narrow mining
trail, endangering the entrance trail. He had
done all right then, although that tree was
leaning & not upright, & was not so tall.
Opus says, I can climb and have some gear.
Arawn gave Raddok a wink when the
man's amulet helped guide everyone to the cache
lying in the treetop. When the man then spoke up
in regards to investigating the containers and
pouches the party had discovered the alfar backed him in his suggestion.
"So that's three pouches, the two up
there and Unali's. Let's see what the pouches
hold and then move on to opening the box," he
said, hoping to discover if anything of interest might lie hidden within.
While waiting for the party to do so
he flipped through the journal, hoping to find
something hidden among the pages. The man seemed
to have done his sketches while up in the tree
but the druid wondered if he had another reason
to be up high, perhaps to spy on the surroundings.
"Kiet, when you were up there did you
notice any particular views that he could have been studying?"
Kiet shakes his head. To him it was a quick blur.
But Arawn knows the silo with the
ladder inside from what Fremea said, was twice as
tall and was far above the tree canopy so if he
spied it was from the silo. The tree was
probably just a treasure stash and to keep his
food if he used a limb away from bears and the like.
Dorhak notices to his right Arawn
stop to flip through the journal and
grunts. Tells the druid to keep up. Clearly the
Vily and her forest friends whoever they were, didn't want folks nearby.
Unali tosses the coin bag she found
in the man's 'bedroom' chest. He opens it to
find 240-250 brass bits of Marentian design and a
few L'p'nth ones. Also about 12-15 Copper coins
all Marentian. Inside is also a small gold ring
with a small snake stone gem on top of gold
band. It is worth maybe 3-5 SC. A brooch is
also found with a simple brass chain. Both Ring
and Brooch show no sign of magic but the Alfar
has been fooled before with magic
deluding/blocking spells. It is worth 3-4
SC. Arawn opens it to show a tiny gray sketch of
some mountain and on left side a color sketch of
a woman about the size of a quarter.
Arawn puts the items back in
bag. Then asks as he walks to see the bag found
in the hallway niche. The large pouch is more a
bag but has the climbing gear stakes, rope,
grappling hooks and small climbing rings. But
upon moving the rope Arawn notices a tube. He
then recognizes it like one of spyglass that
Unali has. This one is pushed inward
compacted. Most spy glass are just long tubes
but rare ones made in Ticasi and other places can
be compacted to a hand length rather than 3-4
foot. Arawn can tell this is a magical
one. Probably enhanced for viewing. This is
probably what the man used in the silo. To spy on what or who?
The pouch from the tree has a couple
of letters in Marentian. Seem to be from a girl
as Arawn has only time to scan the scrolls.
Finally the brass box, Arawn inspects
as he walks. He asks for the key found by Kimis
in the boot. It fits and he unlocks it. But
patiently rescans it for traps or magic but sees noting from outside.
Turning away from party he opens it
to find another square small book, a cube and a
triangle crystal. All three are magical it seems
but their aura is gray and black so its hard to read what they could be.
Arawn opens the book which is smaller
than the journal but the pages are gibberish and clearly coded.
He inspects the triangle crystal but
it seems to have no spell on it but it is some
form of magic in itself? But he can't recognize the crystal material.
Kimis glances at the crystal, pretty.
Then Arawn inspects the cube. A cube
about 2x2 inches. It is yellow in color and
can't see inside. Arawn can't interpret the magic of it yet.
[Time: 3:38 pm]
Fremea continues to fly ahead of the
party a mile or two at a time. Hopefully no more
silos to slam into. She spots in the east a
figure in blue and she descends to
investigate. IT is half a mile to the east and
off the path the party is taking. Landing on a
tree limb she tries to track the figure. A
humanoid for sure wearing a light blue. It is
moving eastward from the west so she flies
closer. The figure in light blue tunic, tan pants is 5' 10 or so feet tall.
The figure has no bow but a backpack
and a light sword. She tries to get to the south
to get a side view and spies on him. She can see
the person tilt his head as if sensing something
watching him. That's when she sees the ears of
a Elf. The Elf is moving away from the party so Fremea figures he is harmless.
She takes back to the sky after watching him awhile.
[Time: 4:03 pm]
A bit over an hour after leaving the
mysterious area the party decides to rest and
ensure gear is situated from the hasty evac from the area.
Barbosa, Dorhak and Raddok drink
water and tell the King and Bes about massive
dwarf battles. The forest rings out with their
laughter and gestures of great feats.
Arawn, Z'leyra and Tsia sit together
as they ponder on what they found in the tree and
base. Arawn reads the journal a bit more and
still shows its only a couple weeks old. But
that could be 2-3 years or more in the middle
world. That or maybe the man was unsure on the
correct dates. There is implication the base was
built in minutes which is impossible. Unless it
was some great transmutation or such magic? That
would explain lack of dust inside.
Dorhak had ordered Unali and Opus as
sentries on patrol. The sky is still that weird
twilight. The forest is not dark but its not
bright either. The Sidh have no real issues but
the humans can see maybe 150 feet in this dim
light and maybe 250 if they notice
movement. Beyond that its difficult especially
since party has not used torches or light.
Kimis decides to pull from her bag a
small pipe. Not a flute but more like a pan's
pipe than anything. A simple elongated wood with
holes on top for 3 fingers and a mouth
piece. She begins to play as Opus listens to old
tunes she used to play back home around the fire.
Dorhak tries to figure out time in
this place. Has it been 10 or 15 min or an hour?
Unali is due north and Opus is due
East on their patrols. Unali about 50 feet and
moving counter clock wise and Opus about 30 feet moving clock wise.
The music of the pipe and chat flows
in the forest seems to hum with birds and insects
alike. Suddenly Opus hears movement to the east
and squints. Two figures about 5.5 and 6 foot
emerge from the bushes. They seem agitated and
are now making grunts that is barely heard by the
group over the music and chat. Opus sees them
run fast toward them. Now about 240-250 feet out.
Up to the north Fremea has ot circle
back over and over to ensure the party keeps up.
She can hear a slight bit of laughs and
music? She is about 300 feet above the tree
canopy but it drifts up. She wonders if they are
stopping for a break and didn't tell her?
GM: Actions? Comments?
GM: Actually Fri/Sat may be
rough. Suspect I'll be busy fri and I do work
9.5 hrs sat like I did last sat (10.5
hours). But I will try! If not then
Monday . I figure Thursday is too soon for
responses. After 10.5 hours sat I was tired to
do update. But I have made progress on a couple
(3 actually) pnp projects. Those who read
discord will get a hint. One I want to release
next week as a Xmas gift like Wout does at times.
:) Next week is Thanksgiving. But I suspect
folks will be not traveling? I could be
wrong. So a second update may be out but we'll
see then. Past years I figure holiday travel is
blocking response but 2020 is a odd year.
GM: Groups- [here to remind me of walking groups]
1st Triad Dorhak, Barbosa, Raddok
2nd Triad Z'leyra, Tsia, Unali, King, Arawn.
3rd Triad Pyan, Opus, Kimis, Kiet.
