     Game Update #319b  in sequence (file #523)
     Admin notes: Part 2.  Three Month stuff.

     GM: At this point the adventure is over.  Congruatulations to
       everyone who survived.  319 updates later, 523 files later
       and 4.5 years later we are done.  First I must say. Sorry
       for being so long.  I imagined this wouldn't be that long.
       But in big pbem games like this it just grew and got more
       folks.  But when you think about it a update twice a week.
       That's 26 updates a year.  You figure reading them 5-10
       minutes per.  Adds up to about a 10 hour session if you
       were doing this on table top.  The next advneture will
       NOT be this long.  For one thing we don't have to deal
       with a year of Bertram :).  For another thing the next
       adventure won't have anything to explore except maybe
       a small house or two. That's it.  It will be more time
       consuming in terms of its thinking out things to determine
       what's truly going on.  If you wish to join in that game
       then sign up now.  Keep in mind I will be changing a few
       things next time.  Armor, weapons, food will be more
       detailed in terms of Fatigue, weapon breaks and food use.
       Thus in combat your gear may be destroyed.  In this game
       I didn't take into account FV or DR and such.  But will
       in the next game.  Also combat will be tougher in that
       I won't be so lenient in automatic parry or dodges.  Now
       that you guys know how i run the game it will be slightly
       tougher in that regard.

      For those who wish to continue read on.  For those who don't
      you can skim and get with me on your final character. :)

 No rush on this 3 months tuff.  With holidays take your time.  
 I don't expect it for a couple weeks if you wish to really
go indepth on your items. 

      [After the king's reward we can start the 3 month activity.
       Each of you will have 3 months or 90 days to do things.
       You can do applied training in skills or spells.  You
       cna practice spells as well.

       * Bodybuilding - Work on Attributes
       * Skill Training - Get points for skill expertise.
       * Spell Training - Get points for spell training
       * Travel - If you do travel keep in mind if your further away
         that it takes more than 90 days you may be out of luck
         for next advneture.  So you should stay within 45 days
         travel from Marentia at the most.
       * Do something else.  Build a house with your loot.
         Retire for 3 months and relax.  Etc.

       If you wish to spend your gold let me know if you need
       price lists.  If your going to research or buy info
       on the magical items get with me on prices.  

       You can get 1 point for training of spells/skills each
       day of use without a teacher.  For teachers you hire or
       use then you will get 2 points per day.

       With that said, let me know of your three month things.
       If you can try to be detailed in terms of spell failure
       and mana use.  Since I'm dealing with alot of people
       however keep it as simple as you can wihout writing
       an entire book :).  Its ok to be very detailed but
       keep in mind logistics :)  If you have questions on
       your 3 month activity let me know and I can answer things.
       You can typically only learn (1 or 2 points) per day for
       one item. But in some cases I may allow a day action and
       night action depending on situation.  Just ask.

       Also keep in mind there will be random encounters rolled
       up during this period.  They can be very dangerous and

       Rewards yet to determine
         Neva, Ben'dar, Jordi, Chion, Xian, Z'leyra, and Unali.

       Also 3 month stuff for those people.  For others they
       have already been worked up.  The below details each
       person's 3 month activity.  You can use it as a basis.
       If you don't wish to read it that's fine.  But some of
       their stuff could lead you to clues and details you may
       not know of that person.

       During the 3 months several in the group meet at a tavern
       every other week to just chat.  During these times rumors
       and facts are talked about of what each is doing.  Thus
       the below is public knowledge in said group discussion.

       The rest of this update is just 3 month stuff.  See
       part 3 for more stuff...You can save this post for
       later reading if you don't have time.  


   Three Months

     Duke Aren Solest -
       Duke Aren after gaining his full privledges back as Duke of
       the Marentian Kingdom and his freedom quickly seeks to regain
       his name cleared.  The trial of Duke Valnon is open to the
       public by a High Judge, Duke Aren becomes a star witness with
       that of Valnon's daughter Marta.  Duke Aren helps to sway the
       judgement in favor of Duke Valnon.  It was obvious to everyone
       that Duke Valnon was framed when his daughter was kidnapped
       by the Climans as hostage for their will.  Duke Valnon had
       no choice but to set Aren up for events to unfold and to also
       sway suspicion from himself.  After the three and a half week
       trial Duke Valnon is sentenced by the High Judge.  After that
       Duke Aren returns for some rest at his estate.  He slowly
       re-enters the royal court back in favor with King Maros.  He
       becomes more active in the operations military and covert of
       operatives in other nations.  While he had some responsiblity
       doing this before he was framed he expands these duties.  He
       later will take command of all operations.  This becomes
       hush-hush however so as to keep his position and duty secret
       to the outside world.  Rumors fly that he may have gotten
       this position but no one confirms this openly not even Aren
       himself.  He will occasionally over the next couple months
       invite some of the party, especially Unali, to his estate
       for a party or official occasion.  As the last month before
       the next adventure closes he becomes more secluded in his
       duties and the party does not see or hear of him fo rsome time.
       GM: Aren will not be in next adventure. 

     Balrog -
       Even after almost 4 months no one seems to have figured out
       or goten his full name.  He is a very shy person in that
       area.  Rumors over the next month fly that he may indeed
       be a free lance thief.  This rumor seems supported by the
       fact that on the island he coveted the new locksmith tool
       kits found and obtained them all.  He was also seen or
       asked to open at least 4 locks including the big metal
       locked door on the Priestess level.  So this seems to
       support the Thief idea.  Over the next three months he
       keeps to a Inn in Sivas mostly alone but sometimes with
       companionship.  After the King granted that his felony
       be removed from his record he stayed clear of such
       criminal activities.  But after a few weeks there were
       rumors of merchant shops being broken in and it was
       reported by street contacts that Balrog may have been
       in the area.  This was never confirmed and no one seems
       to want to ask him directly.  Amazingly he has no encounters
       of note during the 3 months.  During the last month before
       the next adventure there is some tension from Balrog as
       it seems he has gotten into a feud with another thief.  Where
       this is going no one knows.

     Cholan Dakh
       After Cholan returns it takes 1 week for a healer of any
       merit to be found with a high Regeneration skill.  Till
       then he rests in a sleep trance in Sivas by another healer.
       When the regeneration does rebuild his hand however it has
       pernmanet nerve damage and his reflexes are slightly
       diminshed.  He soon takes residence in a boarding house with
       his pet Ferret Tikil.  At age 29 he knows he has a full life
       ahead but broods for a few weeks.  Eventually he gains a job
       on the local wharf district as sailor on a patrol craft for
       the port of Sivas inspecting foreign ships.  He actually
       decides to stay at home near Sivas.  It turns out that he
       is spending much of his time at the Gold Tooth Tavern.  There
       he has gotten further smitten with a Singer he has known for
       several years by the name of Vivan Soto.  In the last month
       he spends more and more time with her and at this tavern
       and doesn't attend much party reunion or functions.
       GM: Cholan was run by Burton who got too busy to run the
         character.  Since he is not going to do this he will not
         be in the next adventure unless something changes.

       When Valgor's body returns to Marentia he is burind in a
       cemetary in Sivas his birth city.  His family mourns his
       death but is glad for the part of party treasure so they
       can pay for his funeral and other debts he had at the time.
       his relative could also have use for the money as not all of
       them were well off like Valgor.  A few days after the return
       of his body the party is invited to his funeral.  Those who
       attend see it is being led by a Priest of Tehuti.  He gives
       the following speech at the funeral:

       "...little was known of Valgor to the open world outside his
        family.  He was a humble wizard who had only just gained
        his training only two years ago at the age of 18.  He was
        still an apprentice in the eyes of the Wizardry sect but he
        was also of noble birth.  Son of Count Fetti who was known
        to lead the battle at Xansonar Pass.  A wizard raised and
        trained by a Faerry in his houshold he would learn six
        langauges and many useful skills.  He was renown for his
        ability as a Scribe and a Jeweler in the local neighborhood
        he was raised in.  He was called far and wide to serve to
        rreate Protection magic again evil in the estates of high
        nobles in our great province.  He learned the mystical ways
        of fire, how to reverse damage upon him, to walk through
        walls, levitate, move from place to place easilly and his
        favorite power to preserve the dead.  It is ironic that
        very power would save his body for funeral this day...."

       Valgor would be buried in his favorite yellow blanket which
       was unusual design and of superb quality.  A local scholar
       in Sivas named Selfis after funeral would thank the party
       for the return of his body.  He was a close friend who would
       help train and educate the boy.  The funeral becomes tense
       when a Moneylender named Jedri visits the body to pay respect.
       It is learned later this person was the one who had debts on
       Valgor but who was later paid of by the family.  Thoush valgor
       and Jedri had hostile times Jedri came to pay his respects.
       Thoough some suspect he came to make sure Valgor was dead.
       Friends of Valgor would talk quietly with the party and from
       their conversations learn that Valgor was trying to obtain
       respect among his noble peers for many years.  The party
       leaves the sad funeral.
      GM: Obviously he won't be in next adventure.

     Caladan -
       Caladan is still new to his magic and as such after the party
       disperses for their various 3 months of activities he heads
       to the mountains for meditation and to enjoy time alone.  He
       sends 90 Gold of his part o the loot home to his tribe in
       the Zen'da lands.  This will help them with their day to day
       things like food and supplies.  He buys a new horse and completes
       the equipment for it in all good materials.  The horse of high
       quality as well.  During the 3 months he practices his longbow
       skill and gains a EL in it.  He also spends half the 3 months
       just practicing his spells.  Doing so he gains a new EL in
       Fire Dart spell.  He spends 4 weeks in the mountains doing
       nothing but training with his combat skills.  Often he returns
       to the city and meets up with the party for an event or just
       reunion in some tavern.  But mostly he spends time in a mountain
       valley full of a small forest.  ON one such city visit Xian
       encounters and sees Caladan has new leather armor that seems
       to be much tougher as well as a new war staff of some new
       design.  Caladan explains he had enchantments places on his
       leather armor and warstaff.  Most of his gold went for this
       that he already had before the adventure.  Caladan returns to
       seek a private audience with King Maros and asks for his reward.
       He asks that land be given to him but he will pay for it.  The
       King is only to grant the choosen alotment without question.
       This comes with some surprise by the King's aide.  The request
       is highly rude.  But the King grants it.  Caldan buys 60
       acres of forest land in the mountain.  There he builds a log
       cabin for his new marentian home.  It is learned later that
       a nearby village to his land was beset by bandits and creatures.
       He got this land to help the nearby village during times of

       Ben'dar often visits the cabin and spends time with Caladan.
       Caladan often thinks of returning home but is aloof about the
       situation when asked and changes the subject.  He always seems
       to say "maybe soon...maybe soon".
       During the three months Caladan has 20 encounters of merit.
       Two are critical battles wher ehe almost died in a battle
       againt 7 humans alone and once again a Great Serpent. 
       GM: He will be in next adventure.  For a full description of
         the 20 encounters see other post.  

     Farseeker -
       After the voyage Farseeker is glad to get back on land.  He
       spends the 3 months training on his various skills.  For hal
       the time he trains in Seaman on a small lake boat to get better
       skill in that.  He also secretly trains in the language o
       Marentian.  This surprises some who learn of this but learn
       its not his native tongue.  But he seems to have spoken it so
       well or at least faked it.  By the end of the time he has
       no problem in the lanaguage.  The last half of the time he
       trains in his combat skills.  He gains partial expertise in
       six of his combat skills that he can (most are maxed).  He
       gains a +1 EL in Battle Axe which maxes that skill out.  He
       also gains a +1 EL in Throwing Axe at the end of the 3 months.
       During the nights at the tavern with the party he tells o
       his background.  It seems he actually grrw up among the Sarghut
       and came here to learn new warrior skills and live.  He did
       serve or some time as a infantry person in the Marentian military
       for a few months.  When the king asks the party of their rewards
       he quickly asks for a military officer rank.  The King grants
       this and as such his station increases with it to six.  In doing
       so he is given second in command of the Sivas Fortress.  Military
       officers there argue this posting but since it was a royal ruling
       they can't object.  But it soon is aparent that his military
       skills as trainer of the army and sailors is excellent.  Being
       a master of Heavy Weapons he trains for weeks the infantry in
       their use and becomes more a trainer than a paper-pusher officer.
       GM: He will likely be in next adventure.

     Bertram Forrester -
       When his body is returned by the Wave Dancer crew from Clima
       it is decided to bury him without honors.  His death and
       his sudden departure from the party on Clima was unexplained
       to this day.  Publically there are rumors of him being a possible
       traitor or just too careful of those in the party he did not
       trust.  His family is not given any portion of the party
       treasure except enough to pay for a pauper's funeral by the
       state.  There is a quiet investigation into his death (and
       some believe murder) but nothing conclusive is found.  There
       is evidence of discord among the party and Bertram so investigators
       can't put aside that someone in the party may have murdered him.
       But who they can't say for sure.  All traces of him is soon
       forgotten by the end of the 3 months.

       During the voyage home Kaylle actually explains his name is
       Kaeyll but folks are saying it wrong. He doesn't mind however.
       After returning home he asks the King for a research library
       and many tomes if possible.  The King grants him to control
       a Library in Malnon since they have a good library already
       there.  He heads up the library which was just newly built.
       He quickly gets to stocking its shelves with many tomes o
       legends and other topics.  His speciality being legends he
       specializes in those topics however. He spends most of his
       gold from the party loot to stock the shelves and hire helpers
       for the library research staff.  He also has a private lab
       in his office area where he stores many herbs and natural
       magical materials he has collected including Castor d'fay,
       Black Cat Bones, Unicorn Horn, Quicksilver, Pigeon Stones,
       and Purple Lotus among many others.  The contents of other
       items aren't known and even the above is kept secret as best
       he can and only for his use.   Over the next few weeks he
       tries to add to his languages that he already knows (including
       Cerulean, Climan, Marentian).  He is a quick study in languages.
       He also helps in diplomacy at times to time when called upon
       with his diplomacy skill.  But his main skill he also tries
       to improve his Legend Scholar skill.  He also sets time aside
       to decode the 10 coded scrolls he found on Clima.  He also helps
       the Marentians to sift through the many documents he packed
       away from the Climan mountain base.  He doesn't seem to get
       away from Malnon or his library that much and is known to sleep
       there. He joined the part for adventure but learned that adventure
       can be deadly and dangerous.  So he refuses to go out again.
       GM: He will not be in the next adventure.  He was played by
         Lyman but he never came back to the character.  :<

     Duke Valnon
       After he was put on trial he was sentenced to one year of house
       arrest.  King Maros excused himself as Judge and a high judge
       was used instead.  The King was actually going to pardon him
       but since Valnon requested the house arrest himself it was
       granted.  Duke Valnon felt he was duped by the Climans into
       framing Duke Aren for various things when his daughter was
       kidnapped.  It was clear coersion to everyone but Duke Valnon
       felt guilty and did not want the nobility to lose faith in
       him or the King. So to better help the Kingdom he choose the
       punishment instead of a pardon.  House arrest for the duke
       includes a 3 acre tract of land where his estate is so he
       is not without his luxury items.  Duke Valnon did suffer
       financial downturns in his private merchant shop enterprises
       in Sivas and Malnon after his trial.
       GM: Simple supporting character so will not be in next adventure.

     Marta Valnon -
       Marta was reunited with his father the next day after the
       ship docked in Maren city.  She would soon support her father
       in the trial with the help of Aren.  Over the next few months
       she woudl quietly fade from public view quickly.  There was
       a slight rumor that her and Triest however were item as theyw
       were both seen at some events in Maren city.  Triest denies
       any involvement but some believe he does so for her reputation.

     Xian Zukov
       After the meeting with the King and others he returns to Sivas
       to his home.  Upon returning he finds many on his street have
       suddenly sold their homes and moved.  Then he finds notice
       on his own ancestoral family home (3 room house) is no longer
       his.  It turns out a rich merchant who owns 14 shops, 3 taverns
       and 2 Inns has bought the entire neighborhood up or obtained
       the property.  Even the orphanage near his home was sold without
       them being able to stop it.  Xian did not take his reward the
       first time from the King but calls in the favor for help.  It
       turns out most just own debts or taxes.  Xian quickly goes to
       pay everyone's debt from his personal loot share.  But the
       merchant who has the city law on his city shows that he can
       own the property if taxes are not paid.  He has Sivas city
       law but only the King can break this exception.  So Xian pulls
       in the favor from the king.  The merchant has to surcomb to
       the King's wishes and the propety is returned to Xian and
       the orphanage.  The plans to build a large warehouse on that
       area of the city was stopped.  Xian soon becomes benefactor
       for the orphanage.  But in this dealing with the merchant he
       makes a new powerful enemy.  As the weeks roll on however
       Xian becomes depressed and more hermitsh.  The loss of his
       father the previous year and his brother to his own hands
       has done it for him.  His only real long term friend, Farseeker,
       comes to visit but is too busy the last few weeks.  By the end
       of the 3 months Xian is ready to leave for some companionship
       and for activity to help lift him out of the depression.  Xian
       only has 2 encounters in the 3 months and almost died in both.
       For those results see other post.

       During the three months Xian practices his skill as a Flute
       player.  He also increases by a few levels each in Disguise
       Artist (trying to even fake out the other party members) and
       Forester skill.  Spell wise he trains in the spell he has
       to increae each.  He even trains in the General Skills.  He
       gains one level in Teleport ability.  Doing this he also
       increases 1 MEL during the 3 months.

       When he meets the part at the end of the 3 months many don't
       hardly recognize the person.  Thig is the first to comment
       on it that Xian is larger!  In fact Xian has done body training
       and increases his overall strength and muscle mass.  

       During the voyage home Damon fell in love with the merchant
       ship over the 2 week cruise.  When he returned and the king
       asked for his reward he asked quickly he be given the ship
       they sailed home in.  The king obliged and gave him the ship
       and paid for a small crew for 2 months.  Damon goes to work
       nonstop to repair the ship and get it in top condition for
       sailing.  He serves to do small merchant operations for sivas
       and nearby cities.  Doing so he earns just enough to break
       even on the cruise but its something he enjoys.  During the
       3 months he has 3 main encounters where he is kidnapped by
       a Chaotic Wizard then rescued, attacked by a band of 12
       Merfolk in a grueling battle and storms.  Shortly before
       the end of the 3 months the party learns of a rumor that
       a royal courtier is spreading that Damon is nothing more
       than a smuggler who homeland was in Vahear not Marentia.
       The King refuses to listen to the rumor but it continues
       to silently travel the gossip lanes.  During the 3 months
       Damon increases all skills he can.  In doing so he maxes
       out his sword and short sword skills.  He also improves
       his swimming skill especially.

       Having returned home Trembyl slowly wonders if he did the
       right thing in giving up the Elemental Staff.  With it
       he could have had great power. But with it also comes
       problems with power.  All his life he has had to deal with
       these choices of balance either being right or wrong.  For
       several weeks he drinks in a tavern every so often considering
       his regrets and decision.  He soon comes out of the drinking
       binge and gets to work on training some.  He improves his
       skills including Seaman, locksmith, marentian langauge and
       improvement on a supernatural lagnauge.  He also works on his
       spells during this time and boosts each one.  Doing so he
       increases a new level in Elemental Powers.  He is not a common
       man being a older (28) wizard over 6 feet tall he is
       striking in features.  It is easy to spot the Cerulean born
       wizard on the streets.  Once or twice those who do notice him
       spot him entering a merchant's shop and usually exiting with
       a packege.  The merchant shop seems to sell general goods but
       is rumored to deal with "interesting" things.

     Suresh Nambler
       Having left the spy on Clima the party fears they may never
       hear back from Suresh.  In fact 6 weeks later after returning
       home he hears of where the party tends to hold a general get
       together and goes there.  He was recalled back to Marentia
       for a job well done.  He explains he sailed back through their
       pre-set escape route with his girlfriend.  After being told
       who he was she agreed to travel with him back to Marentia as
       she being alone on clima and only 20 had no one else.  He
       invites those who wishes to his marriage in 2 weeks since they
       spent 2.5 years on Clima together they feel its time to settle
       down.  Duke Aren frees him from the intelligence service and
       Suresh retires to civilian life.  By the end of the 3 months
       he annouces he is expecting a baby.  After he is debriefed
       he explains that the Climans have put bounties on any and
       all involved in the slaughter of their base personnel.  He
       warns the party of this and to be careful.  He suspects no
       one may be in great danger but there are many in the party
       who are rather unique and easilly identified by their

     Malradh ben Kasha
       Kasha enjoyed the time away to a strange land with new people.
       He is often seen in a local tavern in Sivas near his hotel
       giving out stories of the battles but not enough details as to
       give out details to compromise security for Marentia.  Especially
       after a non-uniformed city guard reminds him to keep details
       of the climan trip a secret.  During one of these tales he is
       overheard by a group of lads talk of his magical mace that can
       slay dragons.  Later they try to steal such to sell but are
       not successful.  During the 3 month period Kasha trains in his
       skills.  He improves his hsubandry and mace skill levels by
       one while improving many others.  Kasha also spends time working
       with province officials in his helping of his village.  When the
       King asked what he wanted as a reward Kasha asked that Marentia
       help his village which is just the border only 10 miles in the
       Bhamotin province.  The village where he saw home, while his
       family left for a bigger city to become skilled moneylenders,
       was beset by problems like village fire, economic problems
       when their crops fail and unemployment.  Though there are red
       tape in diplomatic circles to work through Kasha helps the
       men and families to make their lives better with help of
       Marentia.  He never explains this to the party as he keeps
       this operation quiet but many in the party would find out
       by rumors and gossip.

     Triest (really pronouced Treist)
       After getting home for the next 8 weeks Triest spends alot
       of time with Damon and his new ship.  Triest confides with
       Damon that he is really more a pirate than a warrior.  He
       joined the team to clima to gain more experience.  He wishes
       to someday get his own ship for pirate activity.  Damon
       agrees to help him with navigation and seaman skills but
       hopes that Triest will use his pirate activities against
       other pirates not the common man or merchant.  Triest also
       agrees as he may work for nations as a private pirate for
       various missions.  Two weeks before the 3 months ends
       Triest has a nasty encounter with a group of 4 gamblers
       who cheated in their game.  Unfournately the party will
       learn later that Triest was killed in a brawl that resulted
       from that game.  There was no hope for Triest.  Fournately
       the city guards were able to capture the 4.  Three were
       put into prison for life while the 4th was put to death by
       hanging.  Triest got justice.  The person most hit by this
       news is Damon and to some degree Balrog who were friends
       with triest.
       GM: This character won't be in next game.  In the random
         encounter there was no dodge or rescue.  So sadly he
         was killed.

       After Thig returns to the kingdom his dogs are especially to
       be free to roam around since they could not do so much on
       the small cramped ship.  When the King asked everyone what
       they wanted Thig wanted a Noble title.  But politics were
       in the way so the king could not oblige but it was clear he
       wanted to.  Instead Thig went on his second choice for a
       select list of Herbs and Natural Magic items.  It took
       almost a month for the royal servants to locate most of
       the items.  For the next two months Thig would spend a
       long time in his rented house on the margin of Maren
       city.  But he felt he was watched too much by the Royal
       courtiers so moved to Sivas city to rent a house there.
       While there he spent alot of time alone in closed doors
       working on things.  He was quiet lipped on what items he
       was doing or working.  Kaylle admited a few times he
       was visited in Malnon city for questions or research.
       Thig also sent private messages via the Lower World to
       Avalon about Varange and their results in Clima.  This
       correspondence would last up till hours before the end
       of the 3 months.  During the three months what was known
       of Thig's activities is that he would hire a teacher to
       teach him more of Marentian and Donaran languages.
       Of his spells he improved all of them but improved by a full
       level for Divination, Protection, Teleport and his Telepathic
       Sending ability.  During some tavern chats before the party
       leaves for the next advetnure Thig is seen to have some new
       jewelry.  Specifically a shiny brown ring with a shiny
       green gem in it.  It seems to be faintly glowing but in
       the light of the tavern its so dim its near impossible to
       see the glow unless one stares.  The other is a small circular
       amulet chain around his neck down his tunic shirt.
