demonstration where Caladan uses his magic on a nearby
tree the band backs off. Caladan seeks out a military

bear chases him up a tree and almost grabs Caladan. But the
fire snake bites the bear and he runs in pain away.
Encounter #1 - Sivas City/Day
On a poor district road Xian encounters 3 Beggars. Being one
to help out he gives them some coins. But this creates a
crowd of 9 other beggars to quickly overtake him. The crowd
of 12 beggars quickly confused Xian. It only took one to
cut and grab the coin bag Xian had which had 8 gold coins
and other coins in it. It wasn't the coins that mattered but
Justice. Three of the thieves flee with his money while the
others distract him. But a quick swing o his war staff breaks
the crowd up. Xian gives chase. He quickly spies them and
uses his Teleport power to get ahead of them and chase them
into a alley. The three surround him and pull fighting daggers
and attack. After 6 rounds Xian is heavily wounded with 3
intense cuts and one stab for a total o 11 points. But Xian
is able to use his war staff to kill each beggar with 2 strikes
per beggar. He tried not to kill them but as he was close to
death he had no choice. Authorities clear him of any wrong
doing as he was simply defending himself. Xian has to see
a healer and recup for 2 days. Sadly it turns out one of the
3 beggars was a 16 year old female runaway. Disguised as a
male this fact was not discovered until Xian checked the bodies.
Xian wins with only 2 hit points left.
Time: 6 phases.
Encounter #2 - Sivas City/Night
Three weeks later Xian is visiting a friend in a court office
public building. The friend is a tax collector though not
of the people but of imports into the city. While waiting
in line to visit his friend a foreigner from Aratad, who
was a artist, begins to shout about unfair taxes on his
sculptures. Xian and the friend try to quell the man but
the man pulls out a long fighting dagger and without warning
plunges the dagger into the right lung of Xian. Xian instantly
takes 12 points o damage with only 1 point left for death.
Amazingly out of reflex Xian swings his warstaff and damages
the guy with 8 points throwing him against the wall. Xian
catches his breath as blood spurts out. The man charges again
before the friend can help Xian and swings but misses. Xian
swings again and does 7 more points killing the artist. After
the quick 5 second battle Xian collapses to the ground and
goes unconscious. He wakes to find a healer over him who saved
his life. Again the authorities have clear evidence of self
defense and let Xian free.
Xian wins with only 1 hit point left.
Time: 2 phases
Encounter #1 - Sivas Harbor Docks/Night
Six weeks after returning home. A well dressed Chaotic Wizard
with 3 guards approaches the ship Damon is on (the merchant
ship). The wizard uses an illusion and then a slime spell
to kill the city guards at the dock area. He then approaches
the ship where Damon is alone on the ship doing routine
upkeep. The Wizard tries to force Damon to give over the ship
to him but Damon refuses. The wizard suddenly uses a Whirl
wind spell to attack Damon who is damaged and knocked out.
The guards take him below deck as another guard fetches a
ready crew. Just then Cholan and Balrog who were visiting Damon
see the ded guards and come to the rescue of Damon. They
quickly kill the small crew of guards. Damon uses the distraction
to escape and kill his guard then confronts and kills the Wizard.
Damon is only wounded with a few minor points.
Time: 3 minutes of combat plus about 15 minutes otherwise.
Encounter #2 - 100 Miles South of Malnon/Day
Damon leading his ship on a training cruise encounters a heavy
storm in hard seas. But Damon expertly avoids the storm and
only encounters heavy rain and mild seas.
Encounter #3 - Lake Sivas / Night
As doing a Lake crossing from Maren to Sivas Damon's ship
encounters a small merchant vessel on fire. Damon leads the
ship alongside and boards helping to rescue 3 people and
dousing the fire. It turns out one person saved was the
son of a influential Sivan Merchant who grants Damon a full
contract for future services on his ship as reward.
Encounter #4 - 10 Miles South of Sivas along coast/Night
En route from Bhamotin to Sivas the ship encounters a problem
with its rudder. The ship anchors along the coast just a
few miles south of Sivas. The crew waits for sunrise to
make repairs. AS they sleep the ship sentry encounters
a band of 12 Merfolk men including 1 merman noble. The
crew wake for battle and a fight breaks out. The battle
was a grueling 24 phases of combat (almost a full minute
and half). Damon alone had to tackle 2 merman and the
merman noble. Damon and the crew but he was badly wounded
almost near death with 1 point remaining. The crew lost
3 sailors to the assault. In the battle just for damon
it took 30 seconds before he could kill one of the merman.
At that point another minute passed then Damon's sword
broke and he was thrown to the deck. The Noble was about
to kill damon when the crew rushes and killed the merman noble.
Time: 24 phases
Encounter #1 - Sivas City/Day
While eating at a tavern one day with a large crowd a Brawl
breaks out among 35 people. Many are injured and two are
killed. Trembyl avoids conflict by simply going insubstantial
and walking through the crowds and wall.
Encounter #1 - Maren City/Day
While walking down a street Kasha encounters a small riot where
a group of city guards are trying to post a notice on a
merchant's door. But the merchant and his shop allies nearby
preent them. A small skirmish breaks out. Kasha tries to
intervene and prevents a beating on the merchants by a tough
guard leader. It turns out the guards are only doing their
duty trying to evict the merchant from his store. The
merchant claims he is being coerced into selling the shop
to some other wealthy merchant in the area. Kasha leaves
when the merchant agrees to take it up with the court system.
Encounter #2 - Villae outside Malnon City/Day
While entering a village from a trip across the province
on horseback Kasha notices a mob trying to stone a girl
in rags for adultery. The mob claims its their law but
the Marentian law applies here and Kasha knows enough that
this should not be the true law of the land. So he scoops
the girl up onto his horse and they race out of the village
barely in time to avoid death by the mob. Kasha helps
locate the girl into a boarding horse in Malnon and gives
her some coins to live on for awhile. He finds a priest
for her to talk to as well.
Encounter #2 - Maren Poor District/Day
While taking a short cut through the Poor District of the city
on horseback Kasha suddenly becomes ambushed by a youthful
gang of 9 teenagers. Kasha has a feeling these boys were the
same ones who the week before broke into his room looking
for something. When one threatens to kill him if he doesn't
hand over the mace, kasha then knows for sure. Surrounded
by those on the ground and Kasha on a horse he sweeps his
mace at one teen and bashes his should for 7 points almost
killing the lad. Kasha knows he can't win against 9 others
so he rears up the horse and bucks outward trying to move
those in front. Kasha then uses the chance to flee down the
street and escape. So they wanted the mace. There were rumors
of such since his mace was known to kill Guardians well. Maybe
its time to find a new hotel Kasha thinks as he flees.
Encounter #1-3 - Sivas City/Day
For some reason Triest seems to attract animals many times
over the 3 months. The first 3 encounters are rather
embarassing encounters with a Donkey, Cat and a Wasp nest
which almost overwhelms him.
Encounter #4 - Sivas City/Day
Two weeks before the end of the 3 months Triest encounters
a night dice gaming game on a well travelled street. Since
it was well-travelled he figured it would be safe. He joins
the 4 others who are foreigners to the land travelling
through the province. They speak basic marentian words but
enough to get by. After an 45 minutes of gambling Triest
is up 30 silver but then next hour loses it all. Triest
gives up in disgust and claims they are cheating, which
they are. A brawl quickly breaks out and the 4 bring
out daggers while Triest pulls his scimitar. A quick
stab by one dagger takes Triest to 90% damage. Triest
swings bravely to defend himself but only does a small
cut on one. Another thug swings and slices Triest's
lower neck. This deadly hit with the other deadly hit
makes Triest fall grasping his throat. Triest had bought
his dog with him who defended his master. The dog did
massive damage to one thug almost killing him but they
gang up on teh dog killing him. Sadly, Triest surcombs
to the blood loss and sees his dog killed as he falls
and his life ends. Sadly no one finds him for a half
hour and by then its too late to save him. With the
damage the dog done city guards are able to track down
the group based on the bite damage a healer reports to
them. The four are arrested for murder and will be
sentenced to life in prison (for 3) and death for the
one who killed him.
Encounter #1 - Mountain (Sky)/Day
While flying through the mountains, to somewhere he does not
want to discuss where he was going, thig is attacked by
a Roc. The first dive ambush attack misses. But after 20
grueling phases of battle where Thig uses his buckler and
sword thig takes 50% of hits in damage. The roc is finally
knocked out and then Thig finishes him off. It took a full
minute for the encounter. Based on the experience on this
encounter thig gets +1 in Sword skill. It is later rumored
he was looking for Roc eggs but he denies this.
Time: 30 seconds of battle
Thig wins with minor damage.
GM: As you can see the encounters can be hard. But it will
have to be done.
Sadly we lost Triest during the encounters. There was nothing
I could do. Just bad rolls and bad luck. I enjoyed Triest
since he was a good heavy crossbow backup for the group.
But its how things go. :<
Monday will have more details or info.
