>> Varen decides its time to camp for

>> Rocky has no tent so stands by the future
>> campfire as the pit is being made for it. Varo
>> is in her tent as she places items in it for the
>> night. Juno has no tent but is off gathering

>> as well but is on sentry duty to the north of the
>> camp about 20 feet on a clockwise patrol. Varen

>> Jaren have tents but are not setting the up yet.
>> Razgor also has no tent so is around the future
>> campfire ensuring the horses are tied up about 15 feet away.
>> So aside from Varo in tent, 1 on patrol and 1
>> gathering wood all are around the camp center.
>> About 20 minutes into making camp Jaren turns

>> sentry moves to the south as well to investigate
>> but behind bushes as he moves in that direction.
>> “Hail!” A voice is heard coming from the shadows.
>> Then two men emerge from the dim light and
>> around bushes. “Greetings! May we enter the
>> camp?” They are wearing light travel tunics,
>> leather armor and swords still in their hip sheaths. Varen nods.
>> “We were hunting and...” they get within
>> about 15-20 feet of Varen and the group around
>> the future campfire. Jaren frowns and they stop
>> getting the hint. “Yes. Let's end this
>> nonsense. You,” he nods at Varen. “left Demark
>> and the Commander wants what he was owed.”
>> Rocky notices 2 other men about 20 feet
>> behind these 2 hidden in shadows. But based on
>> noise they are not hiding the fact they are there.
>> The speaker pulls out a item that is a round
>> ball object with a stem about 3 inches under
>> it. “This here is a fire buzzer. It will
>> explode and kill us all and take some of the
>> forest with it. You will return with us or we'll
>> take what we are owed from the others.”
>> Varen stands confident, “bandits are scum! I
>> owe nothing to you or your town.” He turns to
>> the others. “Escort this scum away from here! By Force if needed.”
>> The man beside the speaker draws his
>> sword. Metal can be heard as well from the 2 behind them.
>> Jaren pulls a axe from his back and with
>> swift dexterity throws it at the speaker. The
>> axe goes flying and hits the speaker right in the
>> head. But the blade is side wise so it smacks
>> him in the air not digs deep in to his
>> skull. The impact cracks skin and he stumbles
>> back a couple feet as his other hand is taken off
>> the fire buzzer as he tries to regain his
>> balance. He does not drop the item just holds it
>> in his left hand at this point.
>> GM: Actions? Comments?
>> Next Update...Next week...Tue/Wed?
>> GM: I had hoped to do more. But started update
>> 6 hours late. So to get this done so next update
>> can be Saturday I rushed it out. Let me know
>> what you folks do. I will assume armor is fully
>> on. Weapons on or nearby. If group simply wants
>> to boot them out of camp then it'll be a fast
>> update saturday if combat then will do it sat or Monday if run out of
>> So the one shot. One player had to bow out
>> due to emergency so just us three. Googly I must
>> admit did things bad but not so bad. It was her
>> first ever rpg. But she WAS IC as a chaotic elf
>> paranoid. With that said it did bog things down
>> a bit. Even surprised Booty the gm. So for those
>> who were not there it was a modern dnd which I
>> NEVER played. Set in 1990s. So was not
>> prepared. Spells, swords and modern gns. ;) We
>> were part of a search/rescue team to hep deal
>> with those who have gone inside a cave not to
>> return. From a deaf witness who was attacked
>> inside we learned it was some music of some kind
>> or song that made folks crazy. So Player 101 get
>> ears plugged up. I played a Aasmiar Ranger and
>> Taib/panda played a Goliath. So 3 of us enter
>> and quickly encounter a stone golem. We deal with
>> it and move down a passage. Where one member of
>> team attacks us. We incapacitate. But Goog makes
>> it look like (invisible) she was attacked and
>> tries to turn the 2 of us against each other. So
>> this draged on trying to figure out this
>> situation. We exit. I Heal (lesser restoration)
>> the insane person and so we save one. We go back
>> in and find a wounded Googoogly and a dead team
>> mate. We take them out and question her. But in
>> end its decided to cut our losses. Even as at
>> least 3 others are in cave missing. Too
>> dangerous. I was outvoted but the cave was
>> destroyed and so we left. A year later we are
>> watching news. A volcano erupts at that
>> spot. The gal who ran in to find her love comes
>> out and starts to sing. Then enchants the news
>> crew. End Scene. So a possible part 2 could be
>> out eventually. Booty admitted that he had
>> countless Cultist and a lava monster in the cave
>> and we'd probably have been TPKed. Which I
>> personally do not like to kill folks just like
>> that. So its good we did not follow through. We
>> did save 1 which is 1 more than last few times he
>> has run that adventure. So that's a plus. For
>> those who stayed you may have noticed easter eggs
>> from me. My name was Varen Nor Tarek. :) Also I
>> was doing stuff that will be important later in
>> this adventure. If you heard the full session or
>> pulled the VOD video on demand from stream then
>> you may get the gist of the easter egg. If
>> not. Too bad. ;) About a hour till end of
>> session I was told my headset was cutting
>> in/out. We were in Discord and I had stream
>> muted. So did not realize this. It was a old
>> headset. But next time will use a headset I use
>> for work. The other 3 were streamers so all had
>> good web cam and headsets for their streaming. I
>> did not. :) Hope you enjoyed it and I gave you a
>> feel of my style and who I sounded like. :)
