The Western Shore
As Aearion and I rode in towards the shore following the river along the northern border of the Werewood, the salty wind was stinging our eyes. The inn was right where Mia Taerven said it would be. Darontae and Asturlov came out to greet me as I introduced myself as their comrade’s student. They beckoned me in as their stable boy, Miektas, took charge of Aearion. I hobbled in and they settled me into a nice comfy chair as I told them the tale of my adventure so far. I was my own fault really. We were making our way down the bank of the river, and as we emerged from the pass through the Frosty Mountains, the ground gave way as I tumbled down the embankment. I healed myself as best I could, but the bone was broken in two places. Darontae tended my leg, she is very good, and suggested that if I was to travel to the City of Adam and Eve, Valoria, I might want to adjust my features so as not to draw too much attention to myself. “Ok”, I said, but what could be done? “We will grow you a beard!” exclaimed Darontae. “A bit of facial hair, and a helm to cover those ears and you will easily go unnoticed”. ”It is wise not to draw too much attention to yourself in the city” commented Asturlov. I ignorantly agreed, and they when to work to repair my leg and grow hair on my face. Fortunately, I had two more cycles before I needed to be in Valoria. It took a little under a month to heal my leg, but no more than two weeks to cajole hair from my jowls and lip. Asturlov couldn’t help but laugh as silvery strands grew out in and amongst the chestnut. Darontae chastised him for using the hairs of a skunk in his incantation.
The month passed quickly and the privateer galleon would be docking soon. Asturlov have me a note of introduction which he said would either get me on the ship, or get me killed. I thought he was joking, but when I met the first mate and proffered the letter, there was a moment where I was indeed in mortal fear of my life. After an eternity of a moment, with a grunt and a nod, I was allowed on board. Unfortunately, Aearion would have to stay behind. He was a good companion and I look forward to my return trip with him. Rakaos, captain of the Silver Seal, Let me know in no uncertain terms that I was steerage, and that his crew would soon as slit my throat as look at me if I were to get underfoot. I told him that I fully understood and I kept to myself for most of the trip, that is, until the pirates approached…
“To Arms! To Arms!” cried the first mate. Unnoticed, I immediately started to cast Courage upon the captain and crew. It would not do well for me for them to lose this battle. Once complete, I waited for the pirate ship to close to ballista range. I could see the pirates ready their ballista and so I cast Random Causality onto their weapon. They fired! The ballista bolt shot forward toward our ship and impacted the side doing no damage! As soon as it struck, you could hear the trigger man on the pirate ship shriek as he slumped onto the deck. They tried again, and again another pirate met his demise. Then a robed figure appeared on the deck of the clipper. I cast Miscast Magic at him with the hopes that this was their mage. He started his incantation as the crew of my ship desperately tried to shoot him with crossbow bolts. With his bat guano and sulfur in hand, a lightning bolt shot toward our galleon striking the center mast! It took the damage without wavering. I could see the confusion and frustration of the mage just before a bolt caught him in the chest. Rakaos’ woman then emerged from the captain’s quarters and let loose a spell of her own as fire exploded on the deck of the clipper. Seemingly discouraged from their resolve, the clipper started to veer off toward deeper sea. With another incantation from the captain’s woman, a giant wave of water suddenly appeared crashing into the clipper capsizing it! The excitement was over, and eventually routine started to settle in. I returned to my place below decks.
We docked just north of The Old Forest. The first mate gave me an approving nod as I made my way off the ship without getting underfoot. Caravans were awaiting the arrival of the Silver Seal so I requested permission to join them on their trek to Valoria. There was no horse to be had, and the Caravan Master Driver warned me not to lag behind or I would be left as food for wolves. It was easy to keep up with the slow moving train which seemed to surprise most of Lothos on foot. On our first night, I called upon the full blessing of The Crescent and produced a feast for the Lothos which was heartily welcomed and quickly consumed. The next day I was treated as a champion of the foot-trotters so I took a chance and produced my recorder to play a tune for our journey. The Master Driver seemed pleased as the caravan made better speed that second day. That night I shared the new song I learned from the Silver Seal, “Maid on the Shore” which was immediately recognized by a buxom Daughter of Eve. She picked up the lyrics as I switched over to my recorder. Another, Son of Adam, produced a lute and joined in. Spirits and song flowed deep into the night. After the last Lothos bid me good night, I settled in pleased with myself.
I was jostled awake and heard the clashing of steel. “Stay put!” the men-at-arms told me. I cast Aid upon him and wished him well. Moments later, a young lad approached me panting. “Do… Do you… Do you know how to heal?” he sputtered out. “Our Father has fallen and needs attention immediately!” “Take me to him” I said calmly. He led me to their healer. He was mortally wounded. “Great Crescent, do not let this the life of this man pass into the beyond” I prayed as I cast my curing spells upon him. As I was spent, he opened his eyes and focused with thankfulness. “Thank you my son” he said, “You may have saved more than me tonight.” He got up and started off to the others that had fallen. I offered my meager supplies to help bind and treat wounds, but they politely declined. It seemed that they are usually prepared for such attacks. “Thank you” said a voice from behind me. I turned to see the Son of Adam that had awoken me. “I was skewered by an orc which should have killed me for sure. You cast a spell upon me as I left you?” I nodded, not knowing if such an action was looked upon favorably or not. “Then I am in your debt. I am Rantak, and I can be found between on this route or in either city. If you post word of your need of me at either city gate, upon my honor I will find you.” “I am humbled by your Anna-Tan.” I said. With a slight look of confusion he nodded and left.
The next morning came sooner than I had hoped. I entered into meditation to petition for use of the Great Crescent’s power and was gratified to feel empowered once again. I was treated to a wonderful assortment of fruits meats and breads as I exited my shelter. A gathering of Daughters of Eve were respectfully awaiting my emergence with tears in their eyes. “Thank you, thank you” they said as they left me to my meal. I was starting to understand why Mia Taerven had held to his convictions that not all Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve were cruel and barbarous. The final day of our trek to Valoria was a bit more subdued than previous, but spirits were still warm and friendly. We arrived at the City Gate without further incident and I was offered many well wishes as I departed. “Do you know where you are going?” the Master Driver asked. “I need to be at the Inn of the Golden Coin today, but I do not know its exact location” I said. “I will escort him” said Rantak. “It is the least that I can do. It is not wise to not know where you are going in Valoria.” “Then I am in your debt, Rantak.” I replied. “Oh no, you’re not getting off that easy. I still owe you big time and I will repay you in full!” he smiled.
We made our way across Valoria which took the rest of the day. As we approached, there were all manner of folk gathered outside. “Watch your valuables” Rantak said as we were surrounded by street urchins. “I will, and thank you for your guidance. I would never have navigated the city as well as we did without your assistance. You are a true ellil.” Rantak looked at me puzzled “ellil?” Ah! “Friend! You are a true friend!” I corrected. “Oh! Well ok then!” Rantek again looking at me with a soft concerned look. “You will be ok now?” “Yes, yes” I replied, “I will be fine, thank you.” And with that Rantek disappeared into the crowd.

The Golden Coin
I entered the inn looking for Zaltar. Though there were a few older Sons of Adam gathered in the back, none matched the description I was given by Mia Taerven. The bartender was bantering about with what must have been a Gnome. A gnarly stunted fellow if ever I saw one. But to the right of me, sitting in the shadows, was one of the most beautiful Dallanna I had ever seen. Not Anar’Dal, nor Orthea’Dal, not even Koada’Dal, but Dallanna none the less. She had a lute leaning against the wall next to her. I immediately approached and sat beside her producing my recorder from my cloak. “Shall we play?” I asked. “Well” she replied “I usually am paid for my services. Maybe if the bartender were to offer us some food and lodging?” “She called out to the Bartender. “Eh? What was that?” he said. “Shall we trade a bit of entertainment for some food kind sir?” she offered. “Yes, well… very well” was his gruff reply. Eager, I started in on a piece I had been practicing back in the Glen. Without missing a beat, she joined my tune with a lovely cradle of picks and strums. Our music danced and pranced within the dining hall.
Suddenly, the gnome leapt off his stool and ran out of the inn, nearly toppling over a wiry bearded dwarf. Grumbling, he made his way over to the bartender and pounded the bar “Your Finest Ale!” he said as he slapped coin on the bar “and keep them coming!” Another entered the inn, a Son of Adam clad in Steel Plate Mail with a hand and a half sword at his side. He looked as if he was searching for someone as well. Zaltar perhaps? Aria, as I found her name to be, played and sung beautifully such that many started to enter the inn to listen. Then I lost my train of thought, and dropped a few notes, as the performer from outside came bursting into the room tumbling and flipping. He set up a few chairs to balance on, which came crashing down as he attempted to leap up upon them. His band of street urchins also entered and the chaos escalated. The bartender was shouting, the kids were milling about cutting purses and plying jewelry from the patrons listening to our music. The gnome comes back in and climbs up onto his stool at the bar. Another soldier enters and then an old crotchety Son of Adam appears and commands “Begone ye Riff Raff!” The urchins, minus the trickster, flee the building. Aria and I stop our entertainment, and the inn starts to thin out.
Zaltar! He makes his way to a table in the back of the inn and sits down. “Are there any here who have come at the behest of Zaltar?” he bellows. I immediately stand up and stride across the floor to his table. “My master asks you for your forgiveness for not meeting your summons in person and has sent me in his stead.” I produce Mia Taerven’s signet ring and hand it over to Zaltar. He takes it in his gnarled hand. “And who is your master?” he crackles. “If you recognize the ring, then you know who my master is?” I reply confused. “And what is he a master of?” He presses. Ah! I must be using the wrong word! “My Teacher, Kityth Silverthorn. I am his student, Galdor” I offered. “And what has he taught you?” he asked suspiciously. Suddenly, I was concerned that Zaltar would not accept me into his company and thereby not allow me to meet Mia Taerven’s debt to this man. My heart started to race, as did my mind. “Mia Taerven has taught me to live… to craft arrows… to heal!” I sputtered. “Ah! You will do, you will do” he concluded to my instant relief.
The rest of the introductions were a blur to me as my heart started to calm down. “…I have called across the lands far and wide to gather you to this very spot. This inn, the Golden Coin. I have discovered something right below this inn. Something ancient. I am old and frail and can no longer seek what I want without help so I have called upon you to join me in a quest!” “How much will we be paid for such a task” the dwarf growled. “Ah yes” Zaltar replied, “You will each receive… A Share of the Treasure!” The performer chimed in, a tall Ayeredain if ever I saw one; “Maybe we should be paid a bit up front as a gesture of goodwill?” N’Tel’Quess! Was I the only one here repaying a debt? Such avarice was as foreign to me as the Ayeredain who asked the question! Zaltar pondered this request for a few moments. “I shall pay you each 500 gold for your services in addition to a share of the treasure found!” Mia Taerven forgive me for my rudeness. I know you taught me to speak few and listen much, but I could not let this go on without being heard. “I am not here for a share of treasure, or for payment. I am here to fulfill my master’s debt.” “Well then, I should take custody of his share, for the poor children” the Ayeredain replied. “Ye be keepin’ your hands of the lad’s share, Shaddox” the dwarf retorted. “But Dolgan, it is for the children” Shaddox pleaded. “Dolgan Mar, my share should go back to Zaltar, for it is his debt I am repaying” I stated. “Yes, Yes… But enough of that,” Zaltar continued, “I have this contract here for all of you to sign”. The room exploded into a cacophony of retorts. “Contract? What contract?” “Can I read that?” “I be not signin' any contract!” “We’re all gentlemen, and ladies, here. What need have we for a contract? Shall not a handshake suffice?” Aria concluded. Zaltar was taken aback at the congealed resistance of the company. “Ok, I shall dispense with the contract.” He rolled up the paper and slipped it back into the folds of his cloak. “If you are all ready, follow me.”

Re:Moved "In Game" Fellowship of the Forge Story Here 8 Months, 1 Week ago  
Well now... how to begin...

It has been a long time since I have had any fun. The long journey allowed many travelers who had once enjoyed my entertainment to learn that not only did they pay to see me perform with their tips but that they often went home missing a few things. They would come back and ask me if I saw them and of course I would say no. After a few weeks the word got out and no one came to see me perform. Money Changers and merchants would not do business with me either. Can I help it that the way I learned math it was always in my favor? And who would have thought that Gold always found a way into my possession?

So as my journey wound down I arrived at the city of adam and eve. Hmmm More like a small village than a city. Well let's see if I can "entertain" anyone.

A Few days go by for Shadox.

What a stroke of luck. These children think I am one of them. None of them must have ever seen a Longfellow before. They think I am a kid like them leading a robin hood, whoever that is, type of adventure. I entertain, they bump into folks and after we divvy up whatever they find. I of course do all the dividing. Let's see about tonight's find. 22 Gold coins. Ok. I do half the work so I get 12 and they get 10. I help them "find" the coins... there are 4 of them so 2 for each of us. Now I must collect 1 coin from each for the right to work with me. In the end I have 18 coins and they each have 1. Not quite fair but atlas I give till it hurts.

What is going on over at the tavern. Some little fellow is shouting about a performance. Well that is just the stage I need. Look at all those folks going inside. I quickly change and go leaping and tumbling in to the tavern, not my best work, mind you, but it should work. Darn! Only one clapping fellow. Ok. Got it Balance chairs call kids flash the signs and go for it.

To Be Cont....

Re:Moved "In Game" Fellowship of the Forge Story Here 8 Months, 1 Week ago  
BANG! CRASH! Whoops. I hope the bartender does not expect me to pay for this unfortunate occurrence. I mean if his chair had been solid and not so rickety then I would have been successful and they would not have come tumbling down. Why I otta go complain and yell at him, risking my life as he did for a cheap thrill for his patrons. He has no right... and no coins left in his purse now... LOL.

So this old man walks in and kills our party and chases off the kids. I see folks going over to talk to him and figure why not just "pop" in on them. Turns out that he was this Zaltar cat. Who would have known. He talks about us going into this dungeon that is supposedly hidden and no one knows about it. Strange that the bartender does it. I bet he does. I bet he does. In fact he probably has looted it already and in cahoots with this Zaltar figure. They probably will lure us down in some dungeon and kill us and take our things. Well Ol' Joel, erh Shadox, knows what he is about. he sure does. he will just go right about his own business and let these other fools get into trouble. He will then hide out from zaltar's cronies and escape with a little coin and some brandy. Everyone knows that they store brandy below taverns.


So this old guy comes up with some sort of contract, yeah right, I have never signed one of those and not about to do it today. Anyway he wants to cut us in for a portion of proceeds. Well the portion he and the rest of the crew know about. Wait one of the other fools is giving up his portion... Here is my chance.

"Surely kind sir you have seen the children who suffer in the village. Children without food, shelter, or a future. I have taken it upon myself to help those in need and these children clearly are in need. A need greater than I can provide with my performances. Perhaps we can use this kind sir's portion and help the children. Each gold coin will feed and provide shelter for 1 lost child for a week, maybe more. The extras will go to educating them, teaching them to read, farm, and provide for themselves. They will become citizens of this fine city! What do you say, can we provide a little extra for the lost youths?" WOW! That was some good stuff. The old guy is thinking about it. Darn Dwarf. Why did he have to interfere? his beard looks like a wire brush with steel wool anyway. "Ok. Let's get going if we are going to go. No time like the present"

Ok let me get this correct... This old man leads us into a CRYPT!!! A Frekin' Crypt. This job better turn out good. Bones everywhere, Fog, Smell. It smells down here. Wait what is that.... Oh My... That Crystal is calling me. Calling to me. It is bigger than I am. That is probably worth all the gold in the world.

What just happen... I knew that wall was... I just could not... I did not see a way to open... No matter. But that, that, that lass with the clear voice from the tavern walked right over and found an opening and then that wirebeard just pushed it open. Crazy. Headed down the passage these guys are crazy, I better help them out before they hurt themselves or worse me. As I prepare and to go down the hall and around the corner I hear screams from behind. All I see is everyone milling around and hairy legs on the wall and ceiling. Well I hope they have it under control. I am busy.

Hmmm a long passage with a pool of some sort...

Who would have thought acid. Well it is only 20 feet. As I change my boots those fools are going to retrieve a log. A log. As if. Anyway here we go. "Mountains are High, Valleys are Low, I want to go fast, not slow" The boots reformed themselves to fit me. I can feel their power. I back up, start running, and leap... Flying through the air, with the greatest of ease, I easily clear the pool.

A loud rumbling noise is suddenly booming through the hall as a giant boulder is careening for me. I got this Just a quick leap, whoops. AAAAHHH Black out.... As I come around I am pinned between the wall and the giant boulder covered in acid. This is going to leave a mark. What is that noise. Oh Great Another boulder? Really? Ok I got this one. I will not let these fools see me fail again. 1... 2... 3... [activate boots] Jump. I easily flip over the boulder, jog back to the pool and leap over that finishes with a flourish. Ok. Now they will recognize my greatness. I am the Greatest "entertainer" this side of the great gorge.

What the copper coins no good is that? I have never seen anything so big. I hope our friend in the loud, noise making, armor and his trusty side kick the wire beard can defeat whatever that is.

Re:Moved "In Game" Fellowship of the Forge Story Here 8 Months, 1 Week ago  
So we find this door. The fools want to get in and maybe I want to go in also. No one has a key. At the risk of exposing some of my other talents I inform the party that I might be able to open the door. However the lock is impossible to open. I tried and tried. No luck. It must be magically lock.

Oh this should be funny. The songbird wants to open the door. WHAT!!!! She just walked up, no tools, and using her knife opened the door. Impossible. Shadox, he was trained by the best, Keil the great gnome locksmith. Anyway we open the door and this HUGE MONTROUS LIZARD comes running out.

"Get back, it is a green dragon. The worst kind" Without thinking Shadox springs into action. Runs past the party slides on his knees and back as he leans back and slides under the lizard. With great skill he lodges his half spear into the beast's jaw. A moment or two and the beast falls dead on top of shadox. All the fools just amazed staring with their mouths open. Shadox throws the beast off and jumps up. "Let's make camp here" when he sees the greatest book ever written, his adventures sitting on a pedestal. No wait it is a book of demons or some evil. No it is a book about the best performance ever seen. "We must destroy that book" I shout. No wait why? I do not want to destroy that book. I must destroy the book. Shadox does not want to destroy the book. Finally the book is destroyed. WHY!!!!

The next day I keep finding these doors that have the best locks ever made. I can not open any of the doors. Where that, that, that pointy eared lass clicks her fingers and the doors just open.

We find some treasure but before I get a chance to report the "EXACT" amount we found the goody, goody, big, dumb, fighter tells everyone what he sees and how much. Crazy talk.
