The caravan continues from the town of Bier, along a dusty path towards the north west, to the woods of the Moon and through it...it's a long road to the great City of Valoria....the City of Men, erected by the children of Eve and of Adam...longer still as there is no capable path through the Erinthor Mountains...it would be necessary to pass through the lands of the elves and through the Goblin's pass down to the temple of Crom and then swiftly on the paved road from there to Valoria....
we Dwarves should carve a straighter way through the mountains..a straight path through the mountains great roots....if only it was not so wild and overrun by red haired Giants and worse things found in the deep....one day, the dwarven empires of old would grow strong again...at least there was still the city of men, a last bastion of hope against the monsters that proliferate all the known lands...
Jorrad Ironhelm turned and looked back at the long line of wagons...20 in all...full of fine Ales and lagers from his clan...highly prized in the great city are the hand crafted Ale's of Bier...hopefully there would be no trouble along the road....but if there was, he hoped that the mercenaries he had hired would prove true....surely they hadn't expected Jorrad to do all the heavy skull splitting himself?
He took comfort in the great windfall he had received from the new client...an odd chap he was...sort of mysterious type...a man of illusions...he would have to double check the gold he received against spellcrafts....what was his name again? Zaltar...yes, that was it...Zaltar...

Theron Silverbeard continued to rest in his merchant's wagon filled with casks of his own Dwarven Deeprock Ale. As had been his habit for nearly two hundred years he rubbed his holy symbol to Moradin hanging on his chest, once an immaculately detailed hammer, silver with its runes inlaid with gold, now tarnished black with the details worn from centuries of use.

Theron thought back to the young lad entertaining with his dance, his ability to to make coin and take coin on display to those with a careful eye. The inquisitive girl silently picking out details as she moved through the caravan. The standoffish man far more observant than he appears. Even Jorrad Ironhelm, Master of this caravan, looked on staring at both the present dangers and the future, sometimes glancing at the distant Erinthor Mountains, most likely wishing for the once and, perhaps, future day of the great Dwarven empires.

Of course, even Jorrad didn't know Theron's true past. For past fifty years Theron had made his living brewing, stilling, and otherwise partaking in the fine craft of creating dwarven water. But prior to that, when he was still aloud to know his clan name, when Moradin's might flowed through his symbol mightier than most clan's high priests, when Giants, Orcs, Goblins, and evil Men fail before his hammer... but no, that was no more.

As the caravan continued its journey to the City of Man, Theron thinking of the interesting people involved, rubbing that old tarnished symbol felt a link he hadn't felt in decades, a slight touch in his mind, warm, powerful, full of life, yet still faint to his senses. Moradin's grace, even this small amount, not felt in so long made him weep in his lonely wagon.

No words accompanies the unexpected boon, no instructions or imparting of divine wisdom. However, Thoren knew that this was no ordinary trip. Moradin had forgiven him, though his name did not return to his thoughts, that could only mean he would be needed again. These odd fellows journeying with him, the name Zaltec heard from time to time, old bones feeling young again, Theron continued to sit, white teeth bared in a grin through has long grey beard. "Yes Moradin, I am here, and i shall serve" he said under his breath.

♫♪”Sunlight dances through the leaves. Soft winds stir the sighing trees. Lying in the warm grass; Feel the sun upon my face”♫♪

Thirty-Five years! Has it really been thirty-five years?! A mere blink of an eye for my adopting brethren. But for me... What would this Zaltar need from the likes of me? Surely I’m no mercenary, well… not any more at any rate.

♫♪”Elven songs and endless nights. Sweet wine and soft relaxing lights. Time will never touch you here in this enchanted place.” ♫♪

Would that it were true… Though time has wizened your disciple, it has sapped my strength and dulled my reflexes. But if it must be so, oh Great Protector, I will take up your Silver Thorn once again. Maybe I have become too complacent here.

♫♪”You feel there's something calling you; you're wanting to return. To where the Misty Mountains rise and friendly fires burn. A place you can escape the world where the Dark Lord cannot go. Peace of mind and sanctuary by loud waters flow” ♫♪

I fondly recall the day we met. The spawn of Gruumsh attacking your children. Remember how you made every arrow of my quiver strike true? Remember how you made my heart pound with the strength of an eagle as I charged into that clearing? Not a single orc survived that day. Your children… how wonderful they have been to me.

♫♪”I've traveled now for many miles. It feels so good to see the smiles of friends who never left my mind… When you were far away.”♫♪

Although you have never been farther than the fletch of my arrow, have you? Always there at my ear. You have guided my steps and I have enjoyed your path. I thank you for Galdor. He has been more faithful to me than your blossoms of Spring.

♫♪”From golden light of coming dawn, 'Till the twilight when the sun is gone. We treasure ev'ry season, And ev'ry passing day” ♫♪

You have taught me so much. How could I repay you except with all that I am. I see Galdor has already prepared my steed. Delambur is still a striking stallion with your livery upon him. I hope he will not mind the layers of age I’ve acquired upon his back.

♫♪”I feel the coming of a new day. Dark gives way to light a new way. Stop here for a while until the world,; The world calls you away” ♫♪

And away it has called, hasn’t it? But, your hand is upon me. I feel the reassurance of your embrace. I feel your strength returning to my arms, the spring of the elk within my legs. And I know, I know, I shall return to this hallowed carpet of green.

♫♪”Yet you know I've had the feeling. Standing with my senses reeling. This is the place to grow old 'till; I reach my final day” ♫♪

[shadox]
But my thoughts will soon be wandering
The way they always do
When you're ridin' sixteen hours
And there's nothin' much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin',
You just wish the trip was through

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin' star again
There I go
Turn the page...

[more thoughts from the mind of shadox]

coin has been tough to come by as the trip becomes longer and no new coin joining the caravan. There are several folks watching me with a keen eye... They do not seem like "typical" fools. Are they here for the same reason I am here? how many of us has been called by Zaltar. Tonight I will see if I can try my "hand" erhhh.... Luck at dice. Some of the wagon drivers were playing last night. Maybe I can take those fools for a couple of coins.

Re:Would you like to Game with Zaltar and Shadox? 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
lol....this is SO much fun...sorry to have to suck everyone back to the real world, but because of what has started to evolve here I have had to consider several issues, hopefully we can all figure this out together...

We will by necessity be playing a mixture of 1st edition and second edition simply because it is the only way I have ever played or run a game, so there is no flexibility there...

however, I am happy to run a more advanced medium level game in which you folks can bring your own characters...it seems you all have great visions of who they are and so let's go with them...my fear is that some of them might be too high level...or have maxed out stats...lets maintain reasonable limits here...we must maintain party balance, so I propose we keep it within 3-5 or 5-7th level...is that doable for everyone? Which do you all prefer? If not, what do you propose? I am afraid to play with too high level characters simply because I am afraid it might slow down the game...we only have 2 sessions after all...

I think we should keep our classes more or less secret although I am sure we will all guess more or less the basic classes...but lets maintain some secrecy at first....

please email Jeff at jeff@dwarvenforge.com your proposed characters levels, professions, stats, magic items, etc...basically everything concerning your character...it would be best If you can include a jpeg photocopy of your character sheet...he will forward it to me...

it would be wonderful If you can assimilate your character into my world as some of you already have...I will do my best to weave all of you into a storyline that will be the basis of this grand adventure:)

Perhaps, in actuality the adventure has already begun:)

Re:Would you like to Game with Zaltar and Shadox? 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
All - Here is what I propose.
1) use of 3d6 method at www.dragonsfoot.org/fe/articles/1echargen.shtml to generate your character of desired gender, race, and class (reroll until you qualify for your desired race/class - no power gaming here)
2) 4th level
3) no evil - keeping it heroic as to not waste time targeting other party members. I don't want to spend time dealing with or playing an assassin.
4) max hit points at 1st and 2nd with avg there after, example fighter d10 would have 10+10+5.5+5.5 = 31 plus 4 times CON bonus - for survivability purposes
5) average magic = 3 magic items consisting of:
a) one potion (level appropriate)
b) one scroll (level and class appropriate) or one potion (level appropriate) or one miscellaneous magic item (level and class appropriate)
c) one +1 weapon or +1 armor or +1 shield or one (level and class appropriate) charged item with 5 charges
6) DM has final approval of character

What does everyone think?

Re:Would you like to Game with Zaltar and Shadox? 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
I am ok with most of the suggestions. I would like to make the following changes or rather voice my suggestions.

I would like a lower level but not to low. So 3rd. max first level and avg next 2 gives us a chance to get killed. I would say 1 magic item and 1 cure light potion. 1 armor, 1 weapon, money at the npc level for 3rd level.

my thoughts.
