Game Update #2 in sequence (file #3)
Admin notes: None.
From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
Z'leyra will warmly welcome Fremea saying <in Tongue of the
Faerry Sidh> "Welcome! We are glad to have you join our group.
If you wish you may stay at my mansion while we are at Sivas.
Though I should warn you that I have been attacked there,
apparently I have enemies that might attack any near me."
Z'leyra extends an invitation to all party members to guest
at her mansion at Sivas if they wish. She does mention that
apparently she has enemies and staying with her is not without
In regards to the Claw Z'leyra will keep it in her satchel
until out of the forest. Then she will cast OS EL0 and a
Divination ELmax to determine if the next day she will say
"Well it appears that burning the Claw didn't cause any
problem." If so she will start a fire and burn the Claw.
Otherwise she will keep the claw wrapped up in her satchel.
Before being teleported Z'leyra will cast OS EL0 and
Divination EL0 to determine if she will later that day say
"The teleport went fine, Thank you Chion." If the teleport
goes fine she will say "The teleport went fine, Thank you
GM: Ack. But remind me on the claw stuff in your in between
actions as that is after and can be handled then.
Best to handle it all at once. As to teleport actions
the teleport already went through, sorry :<

which at the time of the week I'm currently
[Decalis 23rd 114th day since left Marentia, 50th day of
Adventure #3 of the 1633rd year [TH].]
[The party has teleported into the Zen'da Plains - at
the location of Caladan's village. Chion has setup
this Teleport circle near the village just for this
purpose in the past. No one will use it or walk
through it just in case. it is a good way point setup
by him for future long range teleports.]
[Fremea looks confused by the location of the cold plains
and the strange Tipi structures in the distance nearby.
The Zen'da riders and villagers. Arawn is curious by
the low tech Tipis as well. Nothing like this would likely
have been seen near his parent's domain.]
[Ben'dar smiles happy to be back at the plains even for
a short time. So close to his own village in the central
tribes. If only Chion could teleport them there. But
he has work back in Marentia with his Marentia. Once he
proves his status in Marentia he'll return to his village.]
[Chion stares at the village and seems to speak to Fremea
and Arawn as well as the others.]
Chion: "I shall travel to learn shamanic magics. I will also
practice extending mana reserves with spells in a similar
manner as Z'leyra. I will learn any shamanism spells I can,
including resurection if at all possible. I must not forget
to pick up my friends when the time comes. I look forward to
establishing a link to my Tonah creature, that should be
[As he considers his future here on the plains with Cetric
as his teacher he sees several in the tribe notice them and
start to move about quickly.]
Farseeker: "I'm glad we can stop by. I would like to see
[Xian explains to Fremea and Arawn about the tribe.]
Xian: "This place is on a large plain that spans about
1,000 miles? Something like that. Controlled by the
Zen'da tribes. Our friend Ben'dar is from here to
the west a bit. The Zen'da are great horse riders and
warriors. Our friend and fellow adventurer Caladan
was born here. He is the son of the Ga'sha or Chief.
He has decided to stay here to help the village and
[Arawn reminds the party the horses won't remain stones
for long. Should only spend about a half hour to be
safe. The party walks into the village and finds
familiar faces. Gib'borah, Durge, Caladan and Cetric
all meet the party. A brief overview of events in the
north is explained to Caladan. Quick conversations
are held on future plans and future investigations
into Katai and the gray creatures. Cetric and Chion
talk privately for a brief time on his plans to stay
here a few months to learn Shamanism from Cetric.
As quickly as the conversations get going the party
needs to leave. They return to the teleport circle
with a unhappy Durge following Gib'borah and Caladan.
He clearly doesn't want Chion to learn from Cetric
and doesn't bother letting anyone know it. Chion
smiles and ignores the barbarian.]
[At the circle Chion gathers the party around and
teleports the party outside the outskirts of Sivas
to a safe zone previously designated and as well
as magic cast to divine the future in case of
teleport problems by some of the party.]
[Now its midday and the party has arrived just outside
the city of Sivas. The Wind blows and the first
hint of salt air is smelt.]
Farseeker: "Thanks Chion for the lift But caravans at
least get food and entertainment on the trip." [He
smiles and winks at Chion.]
[The party waits a bit and the horses transmute back.
The treasure is loaded on the horses and the party
moves on as they explain to Fremea and Arawn the
details on Marentia and the two major cities of
Maren and Sivas.]
Xian: "We meet once a week at the Green Eye Tavern on
Greenemre Street. We'll show you where it is. Its
not a requirement to meet. But all the past and
present adventurers meet there like a club. Those
who have retired like Cholan to those who have not
like most of us. Its a good way to spend time and
catch up on current events as well of keep in touch
in case of problems like Z'leyra's attacks in the
past. Fremea and Arawn are welcome to join us. We
meet on Endweek. Fremea you may want to cover up
your wings. Not many have seen Faerry here. While
they won't go and hang you on the spot they might
be offended or confused. Ignorance leads to fear
and fear leads to hate. For your safety its best
to cover up and maybe look like...a female child...
no offense meant. Thig and Kaylle have to do the
same. Arawn the only thing with you is your ears but
they are more tolerant so covering up is optional
I would say."
[The party enters the eastern gates of the city with
ease as Farseeker's status gives him some privilege in
that area. No fees are paid. The party shows the
new party members the tavern. Cholan is currently
there, as he tends to be these days, with his wife.]
Xian: "Wife?! You got married?"
[Cholan beams and Fremea, Arawn notices his damaged
and incurable hand. Z'leyra explained its a wound
that can't be cured and Cholan is fine with it.]
Cholan: "Got married recently. Glad to see you guys!
Tell me about your travels!" [He calls for drinks
[As Farseeker and Ben'dar take the treasure to a local
market to store in a warehouse the party fills in
details of the last few months with Cholan.]
[The next 2 days pass with the party selling the
treasure and separating the funds. Fremea doesn't
get a party share but knows she just joined the
party. Z'leyra returns to her mansion and Ben'dar
sets plans to return to Maren and his ranch. Chion
returns to his home. Xian returns to his house.
Farseeker returns to his barracks and the party
settles in for a long rest in a bed in a tavern or
home for the first time in almost 4 months. Some
sleep for 10 hours the next day...]
Next update Friday...
GM: Short update. This is how the updates will go for
the next few weeks until I can finish the CP and
IBT actions. So don't expect much. :)
GM: Some advice and reminders:
A. Shouldn't try to plan IBT actions until you do
the CPs spreading out. At that point I will
send you a temp character sheet. You can
then plan your actions on current information.
2. Keep in mind the CPs are for the adventure. You
will likely earn more for the IBT from magic
3. Character sheets: When I send you the character sheets
this is with updated CPs. But keep in mind nothing
is changed in formulae like hit points, energy level
or skills. Those things will likely change. But
since the IBT will affect it no need to duplicate
my effort by doing it twice. So when you get the
sheet is only a current sheet so you have current
info. I will then update the final sheet for
adventure 4 AFTER the IBT actions are completed.
4. Encounters: When you do your IBT time/actions.
Let me know in general where you go and how
you do things. Not a hour by hour schedule.
But if you for example spend time in the Market
and government section let me know. If you
spend time in the graveyard let me know. If
your in the city I will assume your on normal
streets and visit shops, markets and taverns.
But if you do anything out of the ordinary like
the graveyard or shipyards for example let me know.
This will help me with encounters. if your in
the wild or decide to stay say at a location (like
Ben'dar on his ranch) mostly then that's fine as
well. Just a general outline not specific day
by day is needed. Since there could be 960*14
possible encounters I will handle all encounters
as best I can. This is why its best to let me
know ahead of time what you typically do. Go
after someone if 4 to 1? Sure. Avoid battles.
Kill that dragon flying overhead. Sure. That
kinda stuff. Otherwise I will assume normal
defense to save your life actions if you don't
state otherwise (optional).
