Game Update #77 in sequence (file #292)
Admin Notes: None.
[Sepes 29th, 1634TH]
[Location: City of Samma, Donara]
[Time: 1:45:10 am - Samma city, Donara]
The air whips past Etain's head and shoulders as he halts
the horse in a field. He looks out across the field and sees
a two story building. He can feel Fremea's location. It
is not exact but she is in that direction. He dismounts and
slaps the horse to allow it to go back. He moves toward
the eastern side of the building.
Inside Fremea can hear a slight noise from behind her and
down the hall she just came from. Either it is Raban and
the others or more reinforcements. If reinforcements come then
he could be in trapped.
Upstairs on the second floor Korlic moves away from the
window over looking the front of the building. To see a
large form fly toward the place startled him but not greatly.
He has seen much in his short life. Working with the other
for the greater glory is not something he sought. But to
get back to the glorious past. Then he and his people will
regain the power they once had.
Korlic waves toward his friends and moves away toward the
hall. Time to meet these interlopers.
Downstairs Fremea realizes the man running down the hall
is holding the piece she needs. She can't fly after it
since the ceiling is too low. She could fight her way but
she is alone and it would take time. She decides then to
teleport after the man. She speaks a few quick words.
This immediately draws the attention of the humans who
turn. "Hey!" They pick up their picks and move toward
But just as the first gets within 2 feet she teleports down
the hall. She couldn't estimate how far the man has gone
as the humans blocked the view. But it seemed at least 30 feet.
But when she reaches the new spot she sees the human running a
good 40 feet away. She takes to the air and flies after the
Raban grabs Z'leyra hearing some voice yell "hey." He
raises a hand and points down the hall. Z'leyra is happy
to be away from Kiet so that she can wear her necklace again.
Just as the group moves down the hall Unali hears something
Unali turns around that is not a normal voice. But she
has heard it before a noise like a animal.
Down the hall the man sees Fremea flying toward her like
a angel of death. He pulls a dagger and throws it at her
but the distance and lack of light is too much and the
dagger just goes by Fremea. But the attack stalled Fremea
long enough to give the man time to turn around a corner
Fremea slows and rounds the corner to see stairs to the
second floor. She flies up the stairs and looks around.
Looking left and right. She can't see the man left but
she sees him going eastward down the hall. Fremea grins
this time a good chase is always good for the blood to
Fremea reaches for her bow but then sees the man turn inside
a room in the left. She lands 5 feet from the door and
draws her dagger again. Cautiously she nears the door. A
foot from the door the man shows up again backing up.
There is a flicker of light in the room and she can see
the man holding his chest. The man turns to Fremea and
coughs up blood.
The man staggers toward Fremea reaching a hand out as
if seeking help. The man grab's Fremea's arm and spits
out some blood on the ground. "He..lied.." Then he
collapses to the ground.
Fremea keeps an eye out on the door a few feet away
to ensure no one comes out and bends down to check the
man's body. Aside form some copper and a dry piece
of cheese there is no piece.
Fremea curses and edges around the corner peering inside
slightly. She sees a small office with a desk and two
chairs in front. A large window is behind the desk but
it seems to be broken or shattered. There is no actual
glass there anymore.
Behind the desk a large leather chair is turned around
so its back is facing the door and Fremea. On the desk
are some papers and a couple of lit candles.
"You finally showed up." A voice is heard behind the
That voice seems oddly familiar. But Fremea can't
place it. Coming full way into the threshold she waits and
The chair swivels around and a form - tiny form - seems
to be sitting in the chair in the darkness.
"I must admit. You helped me find the first two
pieces." A click is heard as it seems both pieces are
placed together. "They say this piece could cause
storms or such things."
Fremea inches inside the room to get a better look
at the form. "That's far enough. They said you were
the Chosen One. The one to help lead a new age.
They said you had great potential."
The form laughs a hoarse chuckle. Then the form leans form
and his face is seen. Fremea gasps as it is a face she knows.
Those pointy ears the short hair. The tiny face. The smirk she
has seen before she wishes to have removed by her blade.
Fremea speaks his name before she realizes it. "Varange."
The Lord Marshall of the Faerry nation. The highest military
leader under the Monarchs. The one who watched her training and
scowled. He had at least a decade over her in age.
"You seem surprised my friend." He says the last word with
hard sarcasm. "You took long enough to come. After I set up
the thief to get more of us to draw you near. Then the painting
I heard... Took you so much time. Where have you been?"
Fremea lowers her dagger. Faerry law is that no Faerry can
kill another. It doesn't mean they can't hurt each other. But
the Monarchs placed that law in effect a long time ago. Fremea
shakes her head only saving the world from the Vong. So
Varange is the actual thief? Now he has two of the three
"Don't look so shocked. Stand tall. You are the Hand of the
Monarchs. You do their dirty deeds. Or at least you did till
Then Fremea sees it.. Something in the lap of Varange. He
is petting something.
"This foul beast? I actually have gotten a bit used to
it." Varange lifts the docile beast to the light and Fremea
gasps again. That is Squirt!
"You might want to try to kill me. I'm sure I would as
well. But as you can see. I'm a few steps ahead of you.
When you looked at the painting I found your hotel. We
captured the fat human and that ...Elf want to be? If you do
anything to me then they might just be killed. Now stand there
and be a good listener."
Downstairs Raban and the others round the corner and see the
humans. The humans rush the party.
Upstairs Varange leans back in the chair and pets Squirt who
purrs. "I actually need your help. I'm tired of being second
mandolin...or is that fiddle? The human phrases are so stupid..
Second fiddle to the humans. They are a plaque to this land and
I wish the Faerry to have the glory they once had. This is
why I set this whole treasure hunt up. I could not view that
blasted painting. I do have the mark as you do. But when two
of us has it they say they must be partners. Legend. Pathetic.
What is deep inside the heart blah blah blah."
'My mark did see things you did as well. This is how I found
your inn. The third piece is far from here. I know exactly
where it is. I no longer need you. But I know that you seek
your parents. Connections like these is your weakness. You
will go to the third piece and help me get it. Then I will take
you to your parents."
Fremea boils with anger and steps a foot forward. This
ingrate needs to be shown a lesson in connections like that
with a blade.
Before Fremea can answer a noise behind her draws her to look
over her shoulder. That's when a new form lunges in. The form
grabs Fremea and shoves her to the wall nearby. The form lunges
for Varange. But this is when Varange with ease throws a dagger
ight into the chest of the form.
The form slumps to his knees. Fremea then sees the form is
that of Etain!
"The teacher?" Varange laughs. "I saw you in that house.
You sobered up?"
Varange stands and lets Squirt on the table. He looks to
Fremea. "I suspect you would love to ask things or just beat me
down. but I suspect you have more important things in order.
Your friends being captured. The battle that will be waging
down stairs and they could use your help."
Varange hops to the windowsill with agile legs and spreads
his wings. "But your teacher there could use help as well.
Choice is yours. Come to the Capital. Go to the Red Inn
Tavern. You may want to rush and teleport. But take your
time. I can't get to the last piece without your help. I
have things to do. It shouldn't take you but two weeks to
get to the capital by horse. I will see you there. Then I
can trade your parents for the third piece."
"With your help on getting the third piece which I do need
your help. The alternative...is a bit more drastic." He leaps
out flapping his wings. "That is if you survive the night."
With that Varange flies off away. Fremea rushes to the
window and looks back at Etain. He has taken a direct hit
with the dagger in his heart. He has not much time left.
Fuming Fremea turns around to the fallen Etain. He may have
just saved her life. Who knows what the Marshall had planned
initially. Maybe he thought he was doing good by protecting
her. She looks to the outside darkness. She could chase him
and get the answers she needs now. But Etain would surely die
as he may already be now. She considers her options just as she
can hear noises down below like grunting and clanks like sounds
On the first floor Raban and the gals see the 5 males
running their way. A easy fight for them. If that is to be a
fight. But then from the south the hall they just left a roar
is heard. A very animal like roar. Out of the shadows Unali
is to see the first to appear then another. Two large male
Great Apes are charging! Unali is torn in confusion how could
Great Apes be in this building?
The other two see the Apes charge and know they are now
between 5 humans and 2 Great Apes.
Across town Arawn looks at his human. He just heard the
warning from inside. Ozon seems to be killing the loose
ends. That may mean Will and Kell as well as the Faerry. A
plan to get rid of evidence is so typical of a thief.
Fremea stands confused and upset. Varange was a person
of honor they said. He led the Fae with dignity. Now to
be betrayed. She flips the dagger in her hands eager to kill
something, anything. Squirt looks at her and purrs. It
would be nice to kill it the smelly beast but Kell would be
upset. She shakes her head. First Varange says he no longer
needs her then, then he says he needs her for the final piece.
To get her frustration out she silces outward not even looking.
She slices the lit candle in half and then watches it slowly
fall in two pieces on the desk.
[Time: 1:48:10 am - Samma city, Donara]
GM: A good place to stop. A bit of a possible surprise
for some new and old players. If you need to review
Varange see the file on the website on characters
of the campaign. So who guessed it might be him? :)
Lots of options and things to do. Fremea you can
add some replies to the scene if needed. But the
scene basically is as above. You had little time
to react to him.
