     a possible problem.  No Battle.

   Encounter #13  Mountain/Night
     While at a friends cabin in the mountains Caladan finds himself
     surrounded by 17 bandits intent on capturing the family and/or
     him.  A siege occurs for a good half hour.  Then caladan sees
     that a group of 7 after cutting a tree down charge toward the
     door.  Caladan opens the front door while the farmer's son
     fires bow arrows as coer out a window and fires a EL5 Fireball
     toward the group of 7.  All explode in flame and fall down
     dead.  This leaves 8 left.  Caladan later kills 3 more (1
     in composite bow and 2 in melee).  At that point the bandits
     all flee and never return.  Caladan only takes minor damage.

   Encounter #14  Mountain/Night

     Returning home in the mountains  Caladan encounters 4 Adventureers

   Encounter #16  Mountain/Day

   Encounter #18  Roadway/Day
     Traveling on the Marentian roads Caladan encounters 17
     quiet monks on a journey to some place.  They do not speak
     to him and avoid all eye contact.  Caladan respects the
     views and let them pass quiet.

   Encounter #19  Forest/Day
     Caladan encounters a wagon with 8 adventurers in a group.
     They rush to him and try to sell a locked box to him that
     they claim is full of bags of gold.  They are sent by
     a high priest to give the gold out.  But Caladan knows
     better.  He inspects the box and finds runes on it.
     Caladan refuses and the band get hostile.  After a quick
     demonstration where Caladan uses his magic on a nearby
     tree the band backs off.  Caladan seeks out a military
     patrol and to have the band investigated.  It is later
     learned the box had a major curse on it that could only
     be given away by a willing person.  The curse would
     give the person a continual tie to bad luck.  
   Encounter #20  Forest/Night
     While in his cabin just 4 days before the next adventure starts
     Caladan encounters a bear while collecting firewood.  The
     bear chases him up a tree and almost grabs Caladan.  But the
     fire snake bites the bear and he runs in pain away.

 Xian's Encounters     

   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

 Damon's Encounters

   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

 Trembyl's Encounters

   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.

 Kasha's Encounters

   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.

 Triest's Encounters

   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.  

 Thig's Encounters

   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.
