The Gathering of the Realms

Transcription #1

You find yourself in the Monastery of Helm, the place where you have been for the past eight years, training since you were twelve years old. Today, you’ll officially be deemed a Squire, and handed off to a Knight-Protector who will train you for a further five years, until you can take your Oath (or Qasmee as your mentors call it.)

You’ve been standing in the main chapel of the Monastery for what seems like forever, your fellow graduate, the only other man to have lasted through the training, Neren Edbald figits in his ceremonial robe.

“These have always been too itchy”
[1/6/2015 4:34:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’ve never really thought about it until now, but yes they are.”
[1/6/2015 4:36:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: He continues to figit until you see a man wearing a ceremonial robe over his ceremonial armor walk in. Sir Tellin, your chief instructor. “Are you ready? Last chance to leave before you’re sworn into Helm’s service”
[1/6/2015 4:38:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I am ready, Sir Tellin.”
[1/6/2015 4:40:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: “As am I” Neren says too, a little less firmly.

“Excellent.” He clasps you both on the shoulders, holding his hands there. “Never have I met such fine pupils before. Helm will be pleased to have you. Do you remember the chants that I taught you last week?”
[1/6/2015 4:44:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: “If so, say the word and we shall begin”
[1/6/2015 4:45:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: (wait I don’t know them, of course. If I say something like “lets begin” will we just go and I’ll have to make shit up because I don’t remember?
[1/6/2015 4:45:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: )
[1/6/2015 4:46:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: (Its assumed you’ll say them haha dramatic conversation)
[1/6/2015 4:46:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: (oh)
[1/6/2015 4:46:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Let’s begin, then.”
[1/6/2015 4:50:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: The ceremony starts, with both of you standing by the altar has he spouts paragraphs and paragraphs of chants, all in celestial, to which you barely understand. Hours pass, with both of you chanting along, trying to remember every verse of the foreign tongue (this version of celestial is really old, and different from the one you were taught). Finally, by the end, when the sun rises into perfect alignment with a skylight on the ceiling, casting an aura of light around the two of you, Sir Tellin pulls out a blade “Uriel, do you accept this blade and the Guardians of the Vigilant?”
[1/6/2015 4:53:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I humbly accept.”
[1/6/2015 4:55:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: He hands you the blade, tip pointed at the stone floor. “I now pronounce you to be a Squire with the Guardians of the Vigilant.” He nods, gives you his customary wink and moves on. “Neren, do you accept this blade and the Guardians of the Vigilant?”

Neren nods, too nervous for words and as he hands the sword to your classmate, you hear someone shout from outside “Attackers have breached the Monastery!”
[1/6/2015 4:56:26 PM] fumbles57: I dunno why it made me do that
[1/6/2015 4:56:29 PM] fumbles57: anyway
[1/6/2015 4:56:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: What did it make you do?
[1/6/2015 4:57:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: nvm
[1/6/2015 4:57:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: it told me I had to send you a contact request for some reason
[1/6/2015 4:57:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: ?…
[1/6/2015 4:57:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: but I guess it didn’t send
[1/6/2015 4:57:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: i dunno shhh
[1/6/2015 4:57:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: carrying on
[1/6/2015 4:58:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: “who has attacked?”
[1/6/2015 5:02:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: Sir Tellin draws his own blade, the blade that rumors have flown around the Monastery about, the Defender, its blade shining blue. “Boys, get under the altar.” he barks, yelling some instructions at the few other Knights here, “Now!”
[1/6/2015 5:02:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: how old am I right now?
[1/6/2015 5:03:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: You’re twenty, you’ve been training since you were twelve
[1/6/2015 5:03:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: alright I sprint for the altar and get under it.
[1/6/2015 5:04:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: Neren follows you. As you get close to the altar, you notice a trapdoor to the wooden foundation used for the stage that you were on, revealing that a thin layer of stone was put on top to make up appearances
[1/6/2015 5:05:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: I open the trapdoor
[1/6/2015 5:06:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: You slide inside, followed by Neren. It isn’t very tall, so you have to lie down. From where you are, you can look through the crack in the trapdoor if you wish.
[1/6/2015 5:07:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: I do.
[1/6/2015 5:14:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: You can see only behind the altar, to where Sir Tellin is standing.His blue blade in his hand, when suddenly you hear the crash coming from the other side of the Chapel, where Tellin is facing. Within seconds you hear the sound of battle, blades clanging against each other, the scrape of people struggling. You see a man in black armor with a red hood and cloth underneath sprint to Tellin, only to be run through with his blade. With a snarl of victory, Tellin appears to ready himself to sprint into the fray when a cloud moves over the window.

The window shatters and another black and red form appears, landing on top of Tellin with a sickening crack.

“Where is the Avacyn boy?!” it screams, its voice distorted with rage and hatred. Tellin remains silent as he tries to fight back, only using his arms. “You’re useless.” the figure says, and runs him through with his sword. Blood splatters onto the stone layer, and you see the figure reach down and take the Defender, “a worthy blade I think”

The head of Tellin rolls around to face you, and with all the energy he can muster, he winks
[1/6/2015 5:16:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: woah
[1/6/2015 5:16:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: I stifle a gasp and try to stay quiet
[1/6/2015 5:18:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: Both of you manage to gasp, not quite stifling it, but the sounds of the slaughter above mask it. After a few minutes of silence you hear “The boy’s not here. Move on, continue searching!” and the sounds of everybody filing out of the door.
[1/6/2015 5:20:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: I wait for all the baddies to leave and then a few minutes more before getting out from under the altar and running to Sir Tellin.
[1/6/2015 5:20:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: You do so, you hear faint wheezing, a pool of blood lies underneath him
[1/6/2015 5:21:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Sir Tellin!”
[1/6/2015 5:21:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Bridge” he wheezes
[1/6/2015 5:22:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: “what bridge? Sir Tellin, who were those people?”
[1/6/2015 5:24:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Bridge” he wheezes again, weaker than the last time
[1/6/2015 5:25:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Sir Tellin, please! Don’t die like this!”
[1/6/2015 5:28:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: Its too late, he goes limp from what feeble grip he had on you. Neren walks next to him, closes his eyes and has his newly given sword at the ready. “Lets get those swine”
[1/6/2015 5:29:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: “…. Right… I will avenge you, Sir Tellin.”
[1/6/2015 5:30:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: “What was that he told you?” he snarls, doing a few practice swings with his blade, getting ready to charge
[1/6/2015 5:31:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “All he said was ‘The bridge…’ I have no idea what that means.”
[1/6/2015 5:35:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: He stops. “There is an old Dwarven city known as the Bridge.” he says pausing to reflect. He shakes his head “are we gonna go out there or what?”
[1/6/2015 5:36:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: I stand. “Yeah, and we’d better go soon.”
[1/6/2015 5:37:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: He sprints out, past the bodies of the few priests that were in the chapel and into the sunlight of outside
[1/6/2015 5:39:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: I follow.
[1/6/2015 5:41:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: You go outside into a scene of chaos. Bodies, both of the white and blue colors of the Guardians and the black and red colors of the attackers are strewn everywhere. Wooden builidings are set on fire, and battle rages all around you. Two of the attackers are standing outside, slitting the throat of a man in a priest’s robe.
[1/6/2015 5:42:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: I ready myself for a fight.
[1/6/2015 5:43:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: They look over nudge each other and draw their swords. Roll initiative
[1/6/2015 5:44:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: 5 :D starting off strong
[1/6/2015 5:46:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see Neren sprint, a howling roar following him as he leaps towards one of them, blade outstretched. The attacker shoulder checks him, sending him flying into an ox cart, leaving you and two now chuckling attackers
[1/6/2015 5:47:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: i dunno if this is a good idea
[1/6/2015 5:47:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/6/2015 5:47:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is Neren awake?
[1/6/2015 5:48:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yeah, he just rolled a one haha
[1/6/2015 5:49:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: hang on, i have to go to chow. be back in like twenty minutes
[1/6/2015 5:51:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh okay
[1/6/2015 6:19:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: back
[1/6/2015 6:24:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: what do you do?
[1/6/2015 6:55:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: I run in and attack the one on the left
[1/6/2015 6:55:39 PM] chasen.hutchison: Roll attack
[1/6/2015 6:56:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18 (12 +6 attack)
[1/6/2015 6:56:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: wait noo
[1/6/2015 6:56:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: i don’t get dueling
[1/6/2015 6:56:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: so 16
[1/6/2015 6:56:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: Dueling only affects damage anyways you still hit
[1/6/2015 6:56:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/6/2015 6:56:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay
[1/6/2015 6:57:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: 1d8 plus strength?
[1/6/2015 6:57:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: you don’t have a shield or any armor equipped yet so you can two hand it
[1/6/2015 6:57:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh okay sweet
[1/6/2015 6:57:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: so 1d10 plus 1.5 strength?
[1/6/2015 6:58:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: just 1d10
[1/6/2015 6:58:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: plus strength
[1/6/2015 6:58:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh 11 then
[1/6/2015 6:58:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: describe how you kill him
[1/6/2015 6:58:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/6/2015 7:00:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: I sprint at him, leaping into the air with blade overhead, much like Neren but with much more finesse. I slice him from his left shoulder through to the middle of his chest.
[1/6/2015 7:01:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: What class is Neren? Paladin?
[1/6/2015 7:03:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: The other man growls and swings his scimitar at you as you recover, you get just enough time to feebly parry the blow as he winds back up for another swing. Neren leaps from the ox cart, aiming at his back side, stabbing him in the back of the spine, and kicking the dead man off his blade.
[1/6/2015 7:03:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: And yes
[1/6/2015 7:04:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Nice one, Neren. Thanks.”
[1/6/2015 7:07:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: “You’d do the same.” he nods, just as you hear a horn blow, and all the black and red figures in the Monastery start fleeing. Neren looks around, growls a little and takes twitches his head up the hill. "It appears we won the battle. Let’s see who is still alive
[1/6/2015 7:08:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look around to find anyone wounded but still alive
[1/6/2015 7:09:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: Anyone still lying on the ground is far dead
[1/6/2015 7:09:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: How many are dead?
[1/6/2015 7:10:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: Unknown at this time
[1/6/2015 7:10:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look for any distinguishable faces
[1/6/2015 7:11:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: Before you have time, Neren calls back down to you. “They’re all dead. We need to see if we can still help the living”
[1/6/2015 7:12:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: “alright.” I follow Neren.
[1/6/2015 7:14:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: You make your way to the main building of the Monastery, the training arena, which is now serving as a make shift infirmary. You see, in the observers pulpit, a couple older men that you recognize as the Grandmasters of the Guardians, standing around a table and looking as if they’re talking heatedly
[1/6/2015 7:16:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to the infirmary and see if I can help any wounded.
[1/6/2015 7:17:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: The infirmary seems pretty well staffed, and as a man with barely any medical knowledge, you’d probably just get in the way (told you a little bit of railroading in the beginning, I knew you’d do this :P)
[1/6/2015 7:19:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: (hahaha, alright that’s fine) Should I go u to the grandmasters? I feel like I’m not qualified for that lol
[1/6/2015 7:19:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yeah, you should
[1/6/2015 7:20:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: I walk up to them and listen to what they’re talking about not daring to interrupt.
[1/6/2015 7:24:22 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Why did they want the Avacyn child? It’s not like he is important or anything! He’s just a Squire for Helm’s sake!” One of them yells
“We need to find out why! We should launch a counter-attack while they are still weakened!” a younger, brasher voice belts out, along with slamming of the table.
“No. We need to take care of our wounded and maintain a defensive posture. We don’t have enough men here to send any Knights outside.” The oldest voice says, obviously the most powerful as the others seem to quiet at his decree.
“Well let’s at least find the child, maybe he knows what this is about.” the first voice says.
“Indeed. Find him. I’ll use some of my channels to get a message out to his family,” the oldest voice says
[1/6/2015 7:26:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Forgive me, masters, but I overheard your conversation about me.” I say as I bow to them.
[1/6/2015 7:27:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: They all turn to you, as you see a white aura fading from the oldest grandmaster.
“It is alright child. Can you tell us what you know of the attack?”
[1/6/2015 7:28:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I honestly have no idea, master.”
[1/6/2015 7:28:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Recount your events. Maybe there is something that could help us.”
[1/6/2015 7:32:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “as the battle began Sir Tellin told Neren and I to hide under the altar. I watched Sir Tellin fight a large black and red… Thing… That thing asked where I was, and killed him and took his sword when he didn’t answer. A true hero, Sir Tellin was.”
[1/6/2015 7:34:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Indeed he was the best of us. He was going to make Master within the next year” the youngest one says, scratching his goatee. Its easy to tell that he’s barely holding back another outcry for battle
[1/6/2015 7:34:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: “that’s all I know, grandmasters.”
[1/6/2015 7:34:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Hmm..what of your classmate Neren?”
[1/6/2015 7:38:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I will go fetch him. One moment, please.” I go get Neren and tell him the grandmasters want to talk to him.
[1/6/2015 7:39:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: He wasn’t far, hiding in the shadows eavesdropping on the conversation like you. He nods without you having to say the word and comes with you
[1/6/2015 7:39:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay, we both walk back to the grandmasters
[1/6/2015 7:43:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: When you come in the second to oldest one says “and what of you Neren? What is your account of the attack?”
“Well I don’t think mine will be that different from Uriel’s here. We were at our graduation ceremony when we were attacked, Sir Tellen told us to hide, so we did. He was killed by a mysterious man who asked where Avacyn was. When they left, me and Uriel came out, attended to Sir Tellen, and joined in the defense” he looks at you when he says attended with a questioning look but stammers the rest out quickly.
[1/6/2015 7:45:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Oh, yes. Sir Tellin told me something before he died. All he could muster to say was ‘The Bridge…’”
[1/6/2015 7:46:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: The Grandmasters look at each other with a shocked look on their faces. They nod to each other and close the door behind you, and the eldest one chants something, binding your words in silence from unseeing eyes. “What else did he say?”
[1/6/2015 7:47:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That was all he said before he passed on.”
[1/6/2015 7:49:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: They all look at each other again and nod slowly. “You need to travel there child. You’re the only one we can trust, as it is obvious that the attackers aren’t working with you, and its obvious that someone let them into the Monastery, there was no way they breached the walls without being seen before then.”
[1/6/2015 7:51:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I will take on this quest, grandmasters. May I take Neren with me? He is a trusted friend of mine.”
[1/6/2015 7:53:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: “No. Neren, you’re needed in Aelud. We need information on what is going on, and you are the most valuable there with your old contacts” (Neren is quite a bit older than you by the way, maybe 4 years)
[1/6/2015 7:54:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: "Alright, thank you for trusting me, masters. I pledge to find what’s in the Bridge.
[1/6/2015 7:55:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Take this” the youngest hands you something looking like a cloak clasp “show this to the guards and they should let you in. I have an arrangement with them.”
[1/6/2015 7:56:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: “thank you. Is there any way I can acquire armor and a shield?”
[1/6/2015 7:57:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes. Go to the armory and get yourself some basic equipment, and take a horse from the stable, if there is any left”
[1/6/2015 7:59:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you, grandmasters. I’ll take my leave now.” I go to the armory after bowing to them and leaving
[1/6/2015 8:00:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Wait, Uriel!” Neren calls out behind you running to catch up. “I wish I could go with you” he says still holding onto the sword with no sheath.
[1/6/2015 8:01:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I wish you could too.”
[1/6/2015 8:02:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: "If there is anything you need, send a courier to Aelud. I’ll make sure to heed your request to the best of my ability
[1/6/2015 8:02:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thanks, Neren. Our paths will cross again soon.”
[1/6/2015 8:04:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I hope so my friend.” he crosses over, starting to head back to the infirmary
[1/6/2015 8:04:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to the armory to get some stuff
[1/6/2015 8:04:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: You now have your equipment!
[1/6/2015 8:04:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: WOOOT
[1/6/2015 8:04:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to the stable for a horse
[1/6/2015 8:05:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: You find most the horses injured or killed, but you find one, saddle still on and relatively uninjured. It looks like it fought off several attackers, due to the nicks in its legs though.
[1/6/2015 8:06:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: Can I use lay on hands to heal it a bit?
[1/6/2015 8:06:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes
[1/6/2015 8:06:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: I do that, using all 5 points of healing
[1/6/2015 8:07:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: You do so. Looking up, you say a name scratched into the saddle “Tellen”
[1/6/2015 8:08:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh shiiitttt
[1/6/2015 8:10:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: That’s its name
[1/6/2015 8:10:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: I MOUNT TELLEN
[1/6/2015 8:10:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: AND RIIIIIDE
[1/6/2015 8:11:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: Haha where do you ride to?
[1/6/2015 8:11:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: THE BRIIIIDGE
[1/6/2015 8:18:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: So you ride for many hours, towards whatever direction the Grandmasters pointed to. By the time night fell, your horse and yourself are very tired. You see a lonely inn, sitting on the side of the road. Its too stories, but it seems a little poorly made and the stable looks like its about to collapse, but its somewhere to sleep.
[1/6/2015 8:19:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: TO THE INN
[1/6/2015 8:20:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: Do you put your horse away?
[1/6/2015 8:20:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: Yeah. and I go inside
[1/6/2015 8:27:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see that the inside of the bar isn’t that different from the outside, the wood creaks ever so loudly as you step on it. The tables look like they are about to collapse, and the chairs look like they can barely hold any weight. The one good chair is occupied by a fat ginger dwarf, and there is a human bartender with an eye patch on behind a counter. He nods to you as you come in
[1/6/2015 8:28:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Good evening, good sir. are there any rooms open?” do I have any gold? XD
[1/6/2015 8:39:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: (You have 5gp) “Aye, there be one. 3 gold a night” he grunts, putting the key onto the counter
[1/6/2015 8:40:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: I give him 3 gold and take the key. “Thank you.”
[1/6/2015 8:41:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: He grunts and nods, filling up a flagon of ale and slides it over “Comes with the room”
[1/6/2015 8:41:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: Do i get to drink?
[1/6/2015 8:42:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes, the drink comes with the room
[1/6/2015 8:42:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: No i mean as a paladin lol
[1/6/2015 8:42:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes haha you do
[1/6/2015 8:43:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay. I say “Thanks.” and I drink it and go to my room
[1/6/2015 8:43:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a constitution save
[1/6/2015 8:44:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: 7 I’M SUCH A LIGHTWEIGHT
[1/6/2015 8:46:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: The monastery isn’t known for having booze, so this is your first real taste of alcohol. It splutters down your throat leaving you with a tingling sensation on your face. The Dwarf laughs “Oi! That ain’t nothin! You should come over here and try some real drink!”
[1/6/2015 8:46:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: Time to get smashed. I go over to him and try it
[1/6/2015 9:00:22 PM] chasen.hutchison: He slides his flagon over “I like to carry this in me flask, reminds me of home”
[1/6/2015 9:00:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: “where you from?” I ask before I take a drink
[1/6/2015 9:02:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Every drink you take, I’ll answer one question” He smiles evilly at you
[1/6/2015 9:03:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “alright, deal.” I TAKE A DRIIINNNK
[1/6/2015 9:03:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: Con Save
[1/6/2015 9:03:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/6/2015 9:04:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: You manage to swallow that drink down. It was a lot more fiery than the last one “I’m from the Bridge. ’Tender! Get me a Dwarfhead Stout!” He shouts the last bit at the bartender
[1/6/2015 9:05:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: He delivers it swiftly
[1/6/2015 9:07:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: What are some important things I should know about the bridge? I’m headed there now.
[1/6/2015 9:08:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods at the drink
[1/6/2015 9:08:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: I DRIIIIIINK 18
[1/6/2015 9:12:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: Now every drink is at disadvantage cause you’ve drank so much “’Tender! Get me a pint of the Hobgoblin mead! The Bridge spans the length between two peaks. It once was a city under a mountain, but centuries of mining chiseled away at it until the city is now open to the sunlight. Still, very isolationist society lad, you best have good reason for going there” the bartender brings the pint
[1/6/2015 9:15:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: "I definitely do. My masters at the monastery of Helm sent me on a quest. We were attacked recently by some people in black and red. My master was killed, but before he died he said one last thing. All he could say was ‘the Bridge…’ Do you know about this?
[1/6/2015 9:15:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/6/2015 9:18:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: He kinda looks shocked, swallows, and nods to the Mead. Remember to roll twice and take the lower one
[1/6/2015 9:18:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15 again. I rolled a 14 and a 12
[1/6/2015 9:21:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see the corners of your vision turn black. “You should go to your room son. I don’t know anyone of this kind, and I don’t want to get involved in whatever trouble you’re in” he shoulders you and proceeds to lift you to your room. As you spin around, you see three men in leather armor and cloaks sitting at chair. Must have come in when you were drinking
[1/6/2015 9:23:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: “You said you’d answer if I drank and I drank!”
[1/6/2015 9:24:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Bridge is just a city lad! Lots of things go on there!”
[1/6/2015 9:25:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: “You know nothing?”
[1/6/2015 9:27:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: “There are a lot of reasons one could go to the Bridge! It’s a large city!” you see the three men in leather stand up and walk towards you. “Do we have a problem here?” they put their hands on their swords
[1/6/2015 9:27:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: “no no, we were just having a friendly drinking game.” (am I gonna have to fight drunk?)
[1/6/2015 9:28:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: roll persuasion at disadvantage cause you were drunken yelling at the dwarf in the end
[1/6/2015 9:29:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: 13
[1/6/2015 9:32:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Let’s go outside, straighten this out. Morban, get up to your room” one of them says, taking off his cloak’s hood so you can see long stringy hair and a rough beard “You may be not be feeling good,” he says, but their hands hovering cautiously next to their blades
[1/6/2015 9:33:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: so he wants me to go outside?
[1/6/2015 9:33:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes. The three of them
[1/6/2015 9:33:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: does that imply a fight?
[1/6/2015 9:33:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: Does it?
[1/6/2015 9:34:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: i hate you
[1/6/2015 9:34:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go outside
[1/6/2015 9:36:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you get outside, the three of them flank you, one on each side and stringy in front of you. “What were you talking about in there?” stringy growls
[1/6/2015 9:37:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well good sirs, I was just having a talk with that dwarf about his home town. I’m headed there so I wanted to know a bit about it before I got there, to be prepared.”
[1/6/2015 9:38:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: “You know what I want to know,” the man says, drawing his sword slightly so the metal is showing and leaning closer to you
[1/6/2015 9:42:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I know not what you mean, my friends. I do not wish to fight tonight, only to get a good night’s rest.”
[1/6/2015 9:43:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: The two next to you grab your arms and pin you to the wall, stringy puts his blade to your throat within a second. “What was that about the men?” he whispers, snarling each word
[1/6/2015 9:45:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: "whoa whoa whoa, I mean you no harm! Some men in black and red attacked the monastery of Helm earlier today(?) and killed my master. What does that have anything to do with you?
[1/6/2015 9:45:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/6/2015 9:46:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: “That is of none of your concern. Where did they go after that, tell me!”
[1/6/2015 9:47:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: “They ran. I don’t have any idea where they went. And it is my concern, as they killed my master AND you’re holding me down with a sword to my throat.”
[1/6/2015 9:49:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: he grunts, sliding the blade back into its sheath as the other two let go. “Tread carefully Helmite, these are dangerous woods.” stringy says before putting the hood back on his head and the three of them depart.
[1/6/2015 9:50:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: “goodbye then!”
[1/6/2015 9:50:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: They disappeear as clouds blot the night sky, and it begins to rain.
[1/6/2015 9:50:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go inside and go to my room
[1/6/2015 9:51:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: You do so, the room next door seems to emit loud snoring noises, most likely from the dwarf
[1/6/2015 9:53:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to sleep after taking off my stuff
[1/6/2015 9:54:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: You do so. That seems like a good place to end for today. You get one inspiration for holding true to your character for the most part. You didn’t get angry enough at the end, cause your guy is “quick to anger” but overall you were solid
[1/6/2015 9:55:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: Yeah, you have a good point with the anger part. Cool!
[1/6/2015 9:55:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: That was fun
[1/6/2015 9:55:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: More tomorrow?
[1/6/2015 9:56:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yeah sure. How did you like the intro?
[1/6/2015 9:56:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: I liked it a lot. I’m excited for what happens and what I have to do with the story
[1/6/2015 9:57:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: I’m sure you will ;)
[1/7/2015 6:23:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: Sup
[1/7/2015 6:28:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: hey I can’t play right now
[1/7/2015 6:29:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: When can you?

[1/7/2015 7:38:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: over*
[1/7/2015 7:40:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: yeah.
[1/7/2015 7:40:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay ready when you are babe
[1/7/2015 7:40:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: Ok, so you wake up
[1/7/2015 7:41:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooohooo
[1/7/2015 7:41:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: what do you do?
[1/7/2015 7:42:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: I put on my stuff and go out
[1/7/2015 7:44:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: Tk. So the weather is very foggy, and bits of rain fall to the ground. You can only see about thirty feet in front of you, the path stretches out to the left and right. What do you do
[1/7/2015 7:44:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: I get on my horse and go on my way to the Bridge
[1/7/2015 7:45:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a survival check
[1/7/2015 7:46:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/7/2015 7:50:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: You can tell that the path to the left leads to the mountains, ish. From what you remember. The fog distorts your view too much
[1/7/2015 7:51:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go that way!
[1/7/2015 7:52:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make another survival check
[1/7/2015 7:52:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: at disadvantage
[1/7/2015 7:53:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: 4 :D
[1/7/2015 7:56:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: You quickly find yourself lost, what you thought was the road turned into a dirt path made by some wild game, until you and your horse are in the middle of a small grove, surrounded by fog and completey lost. Make a perception check to figure out where the hell the way to go
[1/7/2015 7:59:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/7/2015 8:09:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: hellooooo?
[1/7/2015 8:30:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: sorry had to do a couple things. my bad
[1/7/2015 8:30:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: its coo babe
[1/7/2015 8:30:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: anyway
[1/7/2015 8:31:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: a couple more minutes and i’ll be good
[1/7/2015 8:31:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: kay
[1/7/2015 8:39:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: and i’m back haha
[1/7/2015 8:39:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: woot
[1/7/2015 8:41:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: You don’t here much, though you do hear the snapping of twigs in front of you
[1/7/2015 8:42:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: I put my hand on my sword and say “who goes there?”
[1/7/2015 8:43:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: You don’t hear anything, make another perception check
[1/7/2015 8:43:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14
[1/7/2015 8:44:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear roaring, and the sound of heavy footprints running at you
[1/7/2015 8:44:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: I draw my sword and prepare for the worst
[1/7/2015 8:45:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: Initiative
[1/7/2015 8:45:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/7/2015 8:46:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: Roll again
[1/7/2015 8:46:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/7/2015 8:47:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: You go first
[1/7/2015 8:48:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay I ready my action for someone to come attack me
[1/7/2015 8:49:39 PM] chasen.hutchison: Through the fog, you see a brown bear sprinting towards you, growling, but it doesn’t look like the average bear. Its brown fur is tinged with black ends, and its eyes glow red a little, its teeth vicious and bared for the attack. Make the opportunity attack
[1/7/2015 8:50:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: do I get any bonus?
[1/7/2015 8:50:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: 11
[1/7/2015 8:52:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: Nope. But because you were prepared i’ll give you advantage
[1/7/2015 8:52:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: 19 :D
[1/7/2015 8:53:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: Damage
[1/7/2015 8:53:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: is that a crit?

[1/7/2015 8:54:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: 11
[1/7/2015 8:54:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: Describe a wound
[1/7/2015 8:54:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: how bad?
[1/7/2015 8:55:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: eh
[1/7/2015 8:55:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/7/2015 8:56:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: as it charges at me, I swipe my sword at one of his legs and he gets caught on the edge of it.
[1/7/2015 9:00:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: r u ded
[1/7/2015 9:04:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: It roars in frustration snipping at you with its jaws, getting a quick bite onto your shoulder for 5 damage
[1/7/2015 9:04:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: ow
[1/7/2015 9:04:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: im scared
[1/7/2015 9:04:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: will this kill me?

[1/7/2015 9:06:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: sigh
[1/7/2015 9:06:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: I swing my sword at its FACE

[1/7/2015 9:08:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: Describe
[1/7/2015 9:09:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: After it bites me it rears back and I take the opportunity to slash it down the chest, the cut isn’t too deep, though
[1/7/2015 9:12:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: It tries to take a few swipes with its paws, but your blow did more damage, and as it rears up, it falls on its back, leaving you to attack with advantage
[1/7/2015 9:12:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooo
[1/7/2015 9:12:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: so my turn?
[1/7/2015 9:12:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes

[1/7/2015 9:15:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: I stab at its open belly and connect. the blade slides deep into its intestines, and I pull the blade out and into its heart. It lets out one last roar and goes limp
[1/7/2015 9:17:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: The horse looks at you and snorts, unimpressed it seems like
[1/7/2015 9:17:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/7/2015 9:18:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: I lay on hands myself to restore all my hit points
[1/7/2015 9:19:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: Very good. What do you do haha
[1/7/2015 9:20:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: get on my horse and GO
[1/7/2015 9:21:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a survival check
[1/7/2015 9:21:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/7/2015 9:24:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: you spend a couple more hours riding on the horse, trying to figure out where you’re going, when suddenly you find yourself in the middle of a bog, your horse stuck up to its knees in mud
[1/7/2015 9:24:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: gooood
[1/7/2015 9:24:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: just what I wanted

[1/7/2015 9:27:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: So, you pull out one leg, and make a strength check
[1/7/2015 9:27:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: 20 non natural
[1/7/2015 9:31:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear the splurching of water, as a couple things start heading your way
[1/7/2015 9:31:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: “hello?”
[1/7/2015 9:31:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear rasping
[1/7/2015 9:32:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: I pull faster pls
[1/7/2015 9:32:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: strength at disadvantage
[1/7/2015 9:32:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/7/2015 9:33:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: You manage to slide this one out, when you see several shapes shambling through the near blinding fog
[1/7/2015 9:33:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: so is he almost free?
[1/7/2015 9:34:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: just about, but the shapes are getting closer
[1/7/2015 9:34:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: I pull more
[1/7/2015 9:34:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/7/2015 9:34:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: 19*
[1/7/2015 9:35:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: Neah says hi and that you’re the coolest

[1/7/2015 9:35:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: i say hi to neah and say that she should have been in class when i visited on the 19th, jerk
[1/7/2015 9:36:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: and as you begin to slide out the leg from the mud, you feel something grabbing at your back, make a dexterity save
[1/7/2015 9:36:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: shes actually extremely sad and says she regrets every decision of her life
[1/7/2015 9:36:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: 17
[1/7/2015 9:37:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: good. You manage to leap to the side, as a zombie shoulder checks your horse, knocking it on its side abruptly. You see about 7 zombies, mostly elven and human corpses corrupted by the marsh, shambling towards you, the promise of life so close to them. through your death. roll initative
[1/7/2015 9:38:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: nat 20

[1/7/2015 9:45:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: I stab at one’s stomach through and pull my sword out, unphasing it
[1/7/2015 9:46:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: It reaches forward, pawing at your face as you put your shield in front of it. All the other zombies start moving a little closer
[1/7/2015 9:50:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: you

[1/7/2015 10:09:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: It growls and tries to get through your shield, but its bites land on the metal part, clenching its jaw there for a few seconds
[1/7/2015 10:13:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: what do the other zombies do?
[1/7/2015 10:13:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: The other zombies are still making their way through the mud towards you

[1/7/2015 10:18:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh okay
[1/7/2015 10:19:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: So, as it’s biting my shield I raise my sword up and stab its head, through the top of the skull. It lets its grip go
[1/7/2015 10:21:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you do so, you hear the twanging of bow strings from behind you, hitting a couple of them in the chest and head, killing a couple. The mists hide the shooters though, leaving two weakened zombies left
[1/7/2015 10:23:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank Helm!” I say, as I start trudging quickly towards the zombies
[1/7/2015 10:23:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: They are too slow and stuck to make attacks of opportunity against you
[1/7/2015 10:24:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: woot
[1/7/2015 10:24:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: can I attack one?
[1/7/2015 10:24:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: ALSO
[1/7/2015 10:24:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: when/how do I get feats?
[1/7/2015 10:24:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: feats are an optional rule that, instead of an ability score increase when you level up, you can get a feat instead.
[1/7/2015 10:24:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: and yes
[1/7/2015 10:25:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh, okay. are they worth not taking the abiity increase?
[1/7/2015 10:26:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: some. but ability increases are much more powerful in this dnd
[1/7/2015 10:26:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh, okay
[1/7/2015 10:27:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: Thanks.
[1/7/2015 10:27:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: ANYWAY
[1/7/2015 10:27:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attack one
[1/7/2015 10:27:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: with my sword
[1/7/2015 10:27:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: 17
[1/7/2015 10:27:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: atk
[1/7/2015 10:27:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/7/2015 10:27:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: 7
[1/7/2015 10:27:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: kill
[1/7/2015 10:28:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: woot
[1/7/2015 10:28:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: I walk up and with a hard swing lop its head right off, readying myself for the next zombie.
[1/7/2015 10:30:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: It bites down on your armor, making the pressure on your shoulder a little painful but not enough to cause damage, as the metal stops most of it
[1/7/2015 10:30:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: allright
[1/7/2015 10:30:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attack his face off
[1/7/2015 10:30:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: 22
[1/7/2015 10:30:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/7/2015 10:31:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: 9
[1/7/2015 10:31:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: kill
[1/7/2015 10:32:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: As it bites down on my armor I see its open neck and swing. The head falls right off and lets go, leaving a bruise under my armor.
[1/7/2015 10:34:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you stand there, black blood dripping off your blade into the mud, you feel a great sense of pride welling up inside you. You look at Tellin, your master’s old horse and it still looks at you unimpressed. Just as you slide the sword back in your sheath, you hear more twanging of bowstrings, and feel several arrows, blunted to deal non-lethal damage, hit you in the head, knocking you out.
[1/7/2015 10:34:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: Oh shit
[1/7/2015 10:35:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: New quest: Impress Tellin
[1/7/2015 10:35:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: gotta leave some reason to bring you back next time haha
[1/7/2015 10:35:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: hahaha
[1/7/2015 10:35:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is that the end of the session?
[1/7/2015 10:35:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: gotta go, have a test tomorrow.
[1/7/2015 10:35:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: okee

[1/7/2015 10:36:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: this is a lot of fun
[1/7/2015 10:36:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: it is, and keeps my imagination going. it has withered for a while here
[1/7/2015 10:36:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: D:
[1/7/2015 10:37:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: that’s sad
[1/7/2015 10:37:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/7/2015 10:37:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: anyways, Urdu test haha night
[1/7/2015 10:37:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: night!
[1/8/2015 6:01:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: back
[1/9/2015 8:28:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: herro
[1/9/2015 8:30:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: hi
[1/9/2015 8:33:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: art thou ready to play?
[1/9/2015 8:34:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes i am ready
[1/9/2015 8:36:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: okkee
[1/9/2015 8:38:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: You find yourself waking up, your eyes still closed. Your legs are sprawled out on the ground, like you’re sitting down, but your arms are outstretched high above you. You feel ropes binding your hands to a tree, the roughness on both sides make it equally as uncomfortable. You hear the crackle of a fire, and feel its warmth on your face through your closed eyes. Voices flit in and out of hearing, but they are speaking in a strange tongue, foreign to your ears
[1/9/2015 8:39:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: I open my eyes
[1/9/2015 8:41:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: The fireplace a few feet in front of you blinds you ever so slightly, leaving the faces of the 8 people there obscured by shadow. On the ground next to the fire you see your sword and armor piled neatly together. You see someone look at you suddenly and walk over to you
[1/9/2015 8:41:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: fire
[1/9/2015 8:42:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Why did you capture me?” I say with a bit of anger
[1/9/2015 8:43:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Simple. You have some information that I need to know. I knew this way, I’d have your complete, undevoted attention.” He starts circling the tree as he speaks, leaving himself only in your vision at a few seconds at a time. “Do I have it?”
[1/9/2015 8:45:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: I stay silent
[1/9/2015 8:46:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I said, do I have your attention?” he snarls
[1/9/2015 8:46:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Just tell me what you want.”
[1/9/2015 8:48:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “A few days ago, a camp of mine fell under attack by a small group of men wearing black armor and red hoods. I later find out that there is a Helmite telling anybody and everybody that his Monastery was attacked by the same group of people but larger in number. Who were these men?”
[1/9/2015 8:49:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I have no idea. I’m on a quest to find out, actually.”
[1/9/2015 8:51:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: He punches you in the jaw with a metal gauntlet, take 1 damage. “Don’t lie to me. Your destination lays the opposite direction of the where the path was going. Think you must have seen something. Helmites don’t aren’t attacked by nobodys” you can make an wisdom insight check to see if you can remember anything
[1/9/2015 8:52:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/9/2015 8:52:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: You remember seeing a strange symbol on the hood of the man who killed Tellin, a chimera gripping three arrows and a sword in its hand
[1/9/2015 8:53:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “all I remember was a strange symbol on the hood of the man that killed my master…. A chimera gripping 3 arrows and a sword.”
[1/9/2015 8:55:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Good. Was that so hard? Next question. What martial capabilities do they have? I want everything, tactics, weapons, numbers.” he continues his slow circle around you
[1/9/2015 8:58:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: “They were strong, but our men eventually drove them out. The one that killed my master, though, seemed different from the rest. Much stronger. He also took Sir Tellin’s fabled sword. I couldn’t tell you how many there were. It all happened so fast… My master told me to hide so I wasn’t able to see most of the fight. My friend and I were able to kill two before they ran, though.”
[1/9/2015 8:58:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Fabled sword?” he prompts
[1/9/2015 8:59:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: (what was its name? XD)
[1/9/2015 8:59:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: (Defender)
[1/9/2015 8:59:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: “The Defender, it was named. It glowed blue.”
[1/9/2015 9:01:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: “It seems that the attackers had the drop on you. Why is that? Because last I checked, the Monastery sat atop of a hill, and had walls all around it.”
[1/9/2015 9:02:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: “The grandmasters told me someone at the monastery let them in. A traitor. We have no idea who it was.”
[1/9/2015 9:03:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Hmm. You also said that the attackers fled, from anywhere out on the hill, you could see which direction they ran. Where did they go?”
[1/9/2015 9:03:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: (I don’t remember XD)
[1/9/2015 9:04:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: rollllll
[1/9/2015 9:04:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14
[1/9/2015 9:05:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: You don’t know the specifics, but you know that the forests of Erebor, the city of Aelud, and Waste Marshes are relatively nearby
[1/9/2015 9:06:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: "I’m not sure which way they went exactly, but the forests of Erebor, the city of Aelud, and the Waste Marshes are all places they could’ve gone
[1/9/2015 9:06:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/9/2015 9:07:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Next question. It would seem crazy to attack a Monastery filled with knights of Helm, what were they after?”
[1/9/2015 9:08:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: “This may sound weird, but they seem to have been after me. I have no idea why they want me.”
[1/9/2015 9:09:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Why would they want a puny squire? I mean, what is so important about you?”
[1/9/2015 9:10:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That’s what I’m wondering. I honestly have no idea.”
[1/9/2015 9:11:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: He punches, dealing another damage “You know why! Answer me!”
[1/9/2015 9:13:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’ve told you all I know! The one that killed my master… Before it killed him, asked, ‘Where is the Avacyn boy?’ That’s all it said before it killed him and left. I swear to Helm!”
[1/9/2015 9:14:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Avacyn? As in the noble family that consists of over half of the King’s Royal Guard?”
[1/9/2015 9:14:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: (do I know that?)
[1/9/2015 9:15:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: (Yes, i think i mentioned something like that in the little backstory i gave you a while ago :P)
[1/9/2015 9:15:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: (oh)
[1/9/2015 9:15:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Yes, that’s the one.”
[1/9/2015 9:16:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: “And this didn’t pop in that noggin of yours when I was asking?” he pushes your head away as he says noggin
[1/9/2015 9:17:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “look, I’ve given you all the information I have. What else do you want?” I say, my anger level obviously rising
[1/9/2015 9:18:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Calm down. I only have a few more questions, then I’ll let you be on your way. What are you hoping to accomplish in the Bridge?”
[1/9/2015 9:20:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I don’t know. As Sir Tellin was dying all he could muster to say was ‘The Bridge…’ So I’m going there to find out what is there.”
[1/9/2015 9:20:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Your masters told you nothing?”
[1/9/2015 9:21:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: (did they? gah I don’t remember lol)
[1/9/2015 9:21:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: (did they?)
[1/9/2015 9:22:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: “No, I don’t believe they did. They just told me to go there and see what is there.”
[1/9/2015 9:22:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: He pulls out his blade
[1/9/2015 9:25:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: "I’m serious! The only thing they gave me was a cloak clasp to give to the guards. That’s it. You can find it in one of my pockets. They just told me to travel there.
[1/9/2015 9:25:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/9/2015 9:29:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: He cuts the ropes, binding your hands to the tree. “Hanson, taking four men with you and ride to Aelud. Warn them of a possible attack, then move in a circle back to base camp, warning the rest of the towns and villages along the way. Probst, mount the tree and keep us informed on whats going on. Kaiden, help our guest.” He turns towards one of the tents you see by the fire. “Don’t leave until first light, you’ll be slaughtered in the forest if you try. The woods are dangerous without the light of day”
[1/9/2015 9:31:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “thank you. What is your name, friend?”
[1/9/2015 9:32:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: “My name is Matthias, of the rangers of Erebor.” He ducks into the tent, as the five he instructed begin to ride off
[1/9/2015 9:32:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: “My name is Uriel. It is good to meet you.”
[1/9/2015 9:33:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: He’s in his tent and gone already
[1/9/2015 9:33:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: well fuck him then
[1/9/2015 9:33:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: hahaha
[1/9/2015 9:33:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: He was already in the tent haha
[1/9/2015 9:33:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: I know
[1/9/2015 9:33:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: So
[1/9/2015 9:34:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: How long until day?
[1/9/2015 9:34:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: You can think its around midnight. Kaiden, who you recognize as stringy walks up to you
[1/9/2015 9:35:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “You! you almost killed me!”
[1/9/2015 9:35:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: “No. You almost drank yourself to death, then began intimidating a poor dwarf swindler”
[1/9/2015 9:36:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I was not intimidating at all! We were playing a game. He was giving me information.”
[1/9/2015 9:39:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: “He also took your coinpurse” he tosses you your bag of now two coins, which you didn’t even notice was missing. “And you also began to yell at him for whatever information could help you on your quest to the bridge. There are subtler ways of interrogation you can use. I couldn’t risk a fight from erupting, because the bartender would have surely engaged one, you arguing with his partner and all.” he sits down by the fire “plus i wanted to know about the attack.” he begins prodding it with a stick
[1/9/2015 9:40:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: “whatever, that was the first time I’ve ever had a drink.” I say, annoyed that I have no way of defending myself.
[1/9/2015 9:41:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Thats what they like to prey on. Believe me, I was actually there to shut them down, but didn’t want you hurt.”
[1/9/2015 9:42:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well thank you then.” I say with a lighter tone.
[1/9/2015 9:43:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Trust me when I say that I, and the rest of the Rangers want whats best for the land, and its people.” he points to your gear, inviting you to take it back.
[1/9/2015 9:44:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: “well you didn’t exactly come off that way.” I offer a handshake before I go get my gear.
[1/9/2015 9:45:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: He takes it “We won’t hesitate to do anything to protect the people. Whether that be…forced…questioning like you, slipping a potion into someone’s drink, or placing an arrow into somebody.”
[1/9/2015 9:46:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: “whatever works, I guess.” I grab my stuff.
[1/9/2015 9:48:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Not a lot of people like it. So we live in exhile, traveling from campsite to campsite, helping those around us.” he pulls out some arrows and begins to start sharpening them
[1/9/2015 9:50:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That is very noble of you.”
[1/9/2015 9:51:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Its difficult, and our numbers are few.” he says idly, moving to the next arrow “it seems whenever we pick up somebody, we lose somebody to an owlbear, or a group of bandits or what not”
[1/9/2015 9:52:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: I would be willing to help, but I have more important prior commitments.
[1/9/2015 9:52:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: ""
[1/9/2015 9:53:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Understandable. Maybe next time”
[1/9/2015 9:54:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hopefully our paths cross again under better circumstances. Is there a place I can sleep, by the way?”
[1/9/2015 9:55:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: He motions to the tent behind him. “You are to take my tent, as per Matthias’ request”
[1/9/2015 9:56:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: “do you have a place to sleep?”
[1/9/2015 9:57:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Do not worry about me. I”ll be fine"
[1/9/2015 9:58:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Are you sure? I can sleep out here if you give me a bedroll.”
[1/9/2015 9:58:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: “That is quite alright. It’s a good night anyways”
[1/9/2015 9:59:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Alright alright, I’ll take your tent. Have a good night, my friend.” I step into the tent
[1/9/2015 10:00:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: “You too.”
[1/9/2015 10:00:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: AND I SLEEEEEp
[1/9/2015 10:00:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: P
[1/9/2015 10:00:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: SO YOU DO
[1/9/2015 10:01:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: I WAKE UP?
[1/9/2015 10:01:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: YOU DON’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
[1/9/2015 10:01:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: EVERRRR???
[1/9/2015 10:01:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: no you do
[1/9/2015 10:01:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay good
[1/9/2015 10:02:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: now what
[1/9/2015 10:02:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: You’re in a tent. Thats what
[1/9/2015 10:03:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: I leave the tent with my stuff and find my horse
[1/9/2015 10:03:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: You walk out and find Kaiden and Matthias saddling their horses whilst next to yours
[1/9/2015 10:04:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: “good morning, friends!”
[1/9/2015 10:05:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Morning!” Kaiden calls back, Matthias continues with saddling his horse
[1/9/2015 10:06:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to saddle my horse
[1/9/2015 10:06:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: Matthias hops on his horse and rides off, Kaiden goes and disassembles his tent
[1/9/2015 10:07:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thanks for letting me use your tent, Kaiden. I will see you sometime. Which way is the Bridge?”
[1/9/2015 10:08:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Thats for me to show you. Matthias wants me to guide you to the Bridge, to ensure that there are no hard feelings, and to make sure Tellin’s last request was fulfilled.” he says, hoping on his horse afterwards
[1/9/2015 10:10:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Great! I’m excited to be in such good company.”
[1/9/2015 10:10:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods. “We can make it to the pass by sundown if we hurry.” he says
[1/9/2015 10:11:25 PM] * chasen.hutchison sent Kaiden the Survivalist.pdf Kaiden the Survivalist.pdf *
[1/9/2015 10:11:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: “then let’s go!” I get on my horse and follow him
[1/9/2015 10:11:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: (for combat)
[1/9/2015 10:12:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: He rides for many hours, only pausing a couple minutes every hour to rest his horse. Do you want to ask any questions?
[1/9/2015 10:12:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: by the way, you’re playing his charisma score very well.
[1/9/2015 10:13:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: ;) i know
[1/9/2015 10:13:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Where are you from?” I ask
[1/9/2015 10:13:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: A small village. I don
[1/9/2015 10:14:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: ‘t know the name. It was attacked by bandits when I was 8, Matthias came in and saw me standing over a dead orc with a dagger in my hand. He took me in immediately, and have just travelled around ever since"
[1/9/2015 10:16:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: "So you’ve been friends for a long while."
[1/9/2015 10:17:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Friends is a bit of a stretch. He’s more of a role model, yet I hardly see him. I have had to pull my weight just as equally as the rest of the group does”
[1/9/2015 10:19:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “ah, I see.”
[1/9/2015 10:19:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: “yes indeed”
[1/9/2015 10:21:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: “any crazy adventures you’d like to recall to me?”
[1/9/2015 10:21:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: “None. Just living in the forest”
[1/9/2015 10:23:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Sounds like a great life. Not too much to worry about, huh.”
[1/9/2015 10:23:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Besides an owlbear attacking you while you sleep”
[1/9/2015 10:25:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: I don’t really have anything else to ask lol
[1/9/2015 10:25:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: Then don’t haha
[1/9/2015 10:26:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol then WE RIDE ON
[1/9/2015 10:31:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: You make it to the entrance to the pass, a narrow ravine between two towering cliffs. Light snow taints the air, but it doesn’t feel cold enough for snow.
[1/9/2015 10:36:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: KEEP GOING WOOO
[1/9/2015 10:37:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: “We should set up camp, it’ll be dark while we’re in the pass. Too easy to be ambushed” Kaiden says, hopping off his horse and drawing his bow
[1/9/2015 10:37:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “sounds like a good plan.” I get off my horse as well
[1/9/2015 10:40:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: and begin to set up camp
[1/9/2015 10:40:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: Seems like a good place to end for tonight haha

[1/11/2015 2:38:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: paladin spells aren’t in the basic rules :(
[1/11/2015 2:40:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: check phone. You can prepare 3 spells, but can only use two

[1/11/2015 2:48:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: I’m gonna prepare divine favor (probably), searing smite, and cure wounds
[1/11/2015 2:50:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah
[1/11/2015 2:50:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: those are it
[1/11/2015 2:50:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: thanks bb

[1/11/2015 2:51:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: so I have 22 hp and divine smite, plus the spells
[1/11/2015 2:51:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: coo
[1/11/2015 2:52:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: how much damage does divine smite do?
[1/11/2015 2:52:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: 2d8 radient damage, at the expense of a spell slot
[1/11/2015 2:52:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: wow, that’s a lot
[1/11/2015 2:52:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: but less spells
[1/11/2015 2:52:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah
[1/11/2015 2:53:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: but expending a slot i’d use for searing or thundering smite
[1/11/2015 2:53:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: seems good
[1/11/2015 2:53:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: i think those smite spells are basically a if you want a different effect for your smite as opposed to a spell
[1/11/2015 2:54:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: good point
[1/11/2015 2:54:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: I think I’m gonna go with thundering smite instead
[1/11/2015 2:54:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: tk
[1/11/2015 3:01:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: I’m ready when you are
[1/11/2015 3:08:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: So, you wake up from your night of rest, when the light of dawn pokes its way through the low clouds that obscure most vision in the pass. Through the fog you can see a lone figure, standing on a rock about thirty feet above you, bow drawn. With a snap of the string, you see an arrow go flying. You hear a squeal and within the span of a few minutes, Kaiden comes up, with a dead rabbit in his hand. Tossing it on your lap he cleans the blood off his arrow “prepare breakfast” is all he says before he moves back to his perch
[1/11/2015 3:08:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is there a fire?
[1/11/2015 3:09:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: There is a small one yes
[1/11/2015 3:11:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: I skin and dress is
[1/11/2015 3:11:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: it*
[1/11/2015 3:11:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: too bad you don’t have any spices haha
[1/11/2015 3:12:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah :/
[1/11/2015 3:12:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: no salt or anything?
[1/11/2015 3:12:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: nope haha
[1/11/2015 3:12:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: damn
[1/11/2015 3:13:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: i won’t make you do a cooking check haha
[1/11/2015 3:13:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: thanks
[1/11/2015 3:13:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: I put it on the fire after skinning it
[1/11/2015 3:15:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: So you do. After a small time cooking, Kaiden comes out from his perch and sits down next to the fire.
[1/11/2015 3:15:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: “good morning.”
[1/11/2015 3:16:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: “morning”
[1/11/2015 3:16:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: “How was hunting?”
[1/11/2015 3:17:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Not much game in this area. The pass is more dangerous, scaring away a lot of the larger prey.”
[1/11/2015 3:17:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well, good job with this rabbit!”
[1/11/2015 3:20:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: “It moved next to my watch perch. I took advantage of not having to use some rations.” he says evenly
[1/11/2015 3:21:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: could you send me his character sheet again?
[1/11/2015 3:21:49 PM] * chasen.hutchison sent Kaiden the Survivalist.pdf Kaiden the Survivalist.pdf *
[1/11/2015 3:22:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: thanks.
[1/11/2015 3:22:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: koi bat naheen
[1/11/2015 3:22:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: you’re welcome?
[1/11/2015 3:22:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: no problem
[1/11/2015 3:22:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: ah
[1/11/2015 3:23:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: AAAANYWAY
[1/11/2015 3:23:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: is the food done?
[1/11/2015 3:23:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes it is
[1/11/2015 3:23:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: I give him half and eat my half
[1/11/2015 3:25:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Would kill for some good herbs. I found some Dartfoot, but that tastes like a kobold’s toenails”
[1/11/2015 3:26:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: “hahaha. Don’t want that, do we? Maybe I’ll have a go at looking. What should I look for?”
[1/11/2015 3:27:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Don’t bother. We need to get through the pass as soon as possible.” he continues to clean his arrow
[1/11/2015 3:28:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “If you say so!.” I finish eating and put my armor and shit on, and saddle my horse
[1/11/2015 3:32:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: Kaiden does the same, “I heard some strange sounds over the night from the pass.”
[1/11/2015 3:32:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: “How would you describe them?”
[1/11/2015 3:33:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Like two rocks, tapping together. Except different”
[1/11/2015 3:34:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hmmmm, strange indeed.” I GET ON MY HOOOORRRRSEEEEE
[1/11/2015 3:36:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: So does Kaiden. “Do you want to take point?”
[1/11/2015 3:37:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Either way is fine with me.”
[1/11/2015 3:37:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I’ll be behind then”
[1/11/2015 3:38:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: “alright!” I GO FORTH INTO THE PASSSS
[1/11/2015 3:38:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a perception check
[1/11/2015 3:38:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: 13
[1/11/2015 3:41:39 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear something that sounds like clacking of two rocks, echo off the stone cliffs to your left and right, but its hard to figure out the source
[1/11/2015 3:42:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look around to find the source
[1/11/2015 3:42:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: another perception
[1/11/2015 3:42:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: 21
[1/11/2015 3:47:22 PM] chasen.hutchison: You think that it is coming from around the bend, but the pass is too narrow. If you try to pop your head around the corner, whatever is making the noise could be right there and can’t maneuver
[1/11/2015 3:48:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Kaiden, there’s something around the bend…”
[1/11/2015 3:52:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I hear it too.” he says, dismounting his horse and drawing his bow
[1/11/2015 3:53:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: I dismount and draw my sword
[1/11/2015 3:54:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The cliffs might have a spot where you can see whats there” he says pointing up at the face
[1/11/2015 3:55:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is there an easy way to get up there?
[1/11/2015 3:58:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: You have to climb up the face of the clip, which is a very steep climb
[1/11/2015 3:59:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’m not much of an aid climber, would you mind climbing up there?”
[1/11/2015 3:59:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods (PARTY SWITCH you control him now
[1/11/2015 3:59:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: I CLIIIIMMMMBBBBBB
[1/11/2015 4:00:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: athletics?
[1/11/2015 4:00:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes
[1/11/2015 4:00:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: 23
[1/11/2015 4:02:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: He climbs halfway up the cliff, but the cliff is very loose, so make a dex save
[1/11/2015 4:03:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/11/2015 4:04:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: A piece of a boulder falls from above, and he leaps out of the way, moving sideways and grabbing onto a root sticking out of the cliff. The boulder falls, making clacking noises as it bounces of the rock, and hits the ground and explodes.
[1/11/2015 4:04:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: pheewww
[1/11/2015 4:05:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: Continue the climb?
[1/11/2015 4:05:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: yusss
[1/11/2015 4:05:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: rolllll
[1/11/2015 4:05:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/11/2015 4:08:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: He makes it to a long rock, sticking out of the cliff face like a dagger impaled in the side of a creature, and climbs onto it. You see him realize something, due to the distant, shocked look on his face
[1/11/2015 4:08:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: Do I get to know?
[1/11/2015 4:08:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: When he comes down haha
[1/11/2015 4:09:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay
[1/11/2015 4:09:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: HE CLIMBS DOWN
[1/11/2015 4:09:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: roll haha
[1/11/2015 4:09:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18 again
[1/11/2015 4:09:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: he makes it down safely
[1/11/2015 4:09:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooohooo
[1/11/2015 4:10:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: what does he say?
[1/11/2015 4:12:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I saw a monster of a creature. About ten feet tall, with the body of a beetle, with a dark purple carapace, its head is like that of a vulture, and its arms are just two long talons, ending in hooks. Its tapping the walls every few seconds” he explains, drawing his bow again
[1/11/2015 4:13:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That sounds horrible! We must kill it.”
[1/11/2015 4:13:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: What is that?
[1/11/2015 4:13:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: I’ll tell you after
[1/11/2015 4:13:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: kay
[1/11/2015 4:14:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Obviously. Its in the middle of the only way to the Bridge”
[1/11/2015 4:14:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Right.” I draw my sword and cautiously move around the bend
[1/11/2015 4:14:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: Stealthily?
[1/11/2015 4:15:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: hmmmm no
[1/11/2015 4:15:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: tk. what does Kaiden do?
[1/11/2015 4:16:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: He follows, bow drawn
[1/11/2015 4:20:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you walk around the corner, you kick a rock, and the creature turns around, its milky white eyes looking around your area. It lets out a shriek and taps the rocks around you excitedly. Roll for initiative for the two of you
[1/11/2015 4:21:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16 for me 11 for him
[1/11/2015 4:21:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: You, Kaiden then the creature
[1/11/2015 4:21:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: kay
[1/11/2015 4:22:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: How close am I?
[1/11/2015 4:22:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: About 30 ft
[1/11/2015 4:23:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: also what spells does Kaiden have? XD
[1/11/2015 4:25:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: Kaiden knows ensnaring strike and hail of thorns
[1/11/2015 4:26:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: those are badass sounding
[1/11/2015 4:26:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: what do they do?
[1/11/2015 4:28:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: hail of thorns basically makes thorns raid from the sky, and ensnaring strike makes nature pin people down haha
[1/11/2015 4:29:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: cool
[1/11/2015 4:29:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: ji
[1/11/2015 4:29:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: AAANYWAY
[1/11/2015 4:29:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: I ready my action for it to come my way
[1/11/2015 4:29:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: SILENTLY

[1/11/2015 4:31:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: and what does kaiden do?
[1/11/2015 4:32:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: He stands behind me and shoots an arrow at the monster
[1/11/2015 4:32:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: roll
[1/11/2015 4:33:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: non-nat 20
[1/11/2015 4:33:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/11/2015 4:33:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12!
[1/11/2015 4:34:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: Describe
[1/11/2015 4:35:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: He lets an arrow fly towards the beast. The arrow hits it right in the chest, and gets stuck in the carapace.
[1/11/2015 4:36:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: The beast shrieks again, and sprints towards you, granting you your readied action
[1/11/2015 4:36:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: 19
[1/11/2015 4:37:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/11/2015 4:37:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: 9
[1/11/2015 4:38:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: Describe…
[1/11/2015 4:39:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: As it comes close to me I swing my blade at its abdomen. The slash pierces the carapace a bit, and blood seeps out of its abdomen.
[1/11/2015 4:42:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: It shrieks again, and swings with both of its arms, slamming into both you and Kaiden, 6 each
[1/11/2015 4:43:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: You get a cut on your shoulder and hit the cliff face behind you as you recover. Kaiden shouts “climb, we won’t be a match for it on the ground!”
[1/11/2015 4:43:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: I turn and climb the cliff face!
[1/11/2015 4:44:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: athletics check
[1/11/2015 4:44:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: 17
[1/11/2015 4:44:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: you manage to make it about 15 feet up. roll for kaiden
[1/11/2015 4:45:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/11/2015 4:46:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: so does he. The creature clacks the rocks a few more times, and turns to follow you up the cliff
[1/11/2015 4:48:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: my turn?
[1/11/2015 4:48:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/11/2015 4:48:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: I CLIIIMB
[1/11/2015 4:48:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: 24
[1/11/2015 4:51:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: You make it about 45 feet up, double timing it up the rock face because thats all you’re doing. Kaidens
[1/11/2015 4:51:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/11/2015 4:52:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: Kaiden makes it to a tiny terrace on the cliff face, enough to do something
[1/11/2015 4:56:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: He shoots an arrow down at the thing
[1/11/2015 4:56:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: roll
[1/11/2015 4:57:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15

[1/11/2015 4:59:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: 8
[1/11/2015 5:00:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: describe a hit
[1/11/2015 5:01:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: The arrow sails into its arm. Its armor cracks a bit
[1/11/2015 5:02:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: it crawls up behind you, stabbing its arms into the rock to climb up quickly. You hear the cracking the rocks behind you.
[1/11/2015 5:03:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look back. How close is it?
[1/11/2015 5:03:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: bout ten feet
[1/11/2015 5:03:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: I keep climbing!
[1/11/2015 5:04:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/11/2015 5:05:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: you’re about ten feet away from the edge, where a thirty foot plateau is located
[1/11/2015 5:05:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay
[1/11/2015 5:06:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: how far is Kaiden from me?
[1/11/2015 5:06:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: kaiden’s
[1/11/2015 5:06:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: and the monster
[1/11/2015 5:07:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: kaiden is thirty feet away, and ten feet down, on the other side of the pass, still on the terrace on the cliff. the monster is 35 feet below, stabbing its way up
[1/11/2015 5:08:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: can kaiden shoot then climb?
[1/11/2015 5:08:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes
[1/11/2015 5:08:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: he shoots
[1/11/2015 5:08:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: with a 24
[1/11/2015 5:09:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: hits
[1/11/2015 5:09:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: 9

[1/11/2015 5:13:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: thing’s turn
[1/11/2015 5:14:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: it climbs up, just close enough to reach you and takes a swipe, its claw striking the stone you’re using as a foothold, crumbling the rock into pieces underneath you.
[1/11/2015 5:14:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: nothing bad yet?
[1/11/2015 5:15:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: no, but make a dex save to find out

[1/11/2015 5:20:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: just the same that you’re attack would be
[1/11/2015 5:20:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: your

[1/11/2015 5:22:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: wow
[1/11/2015 5:23:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: 2 3 5 4 3
[1/11/2015 5:23:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: 17
[1/11/2015 5:27:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: The blow knocked you off balance just enough, and you feel your fingers slip from the rock you cling to. You slide down the rock towards the beak and talons of the beast below you. It leans away from the cliff, preparing to stab you through. You see an opportunity and leap off of the cliff, blade pointed at the things chest and you stab your way through the armor and latch on, clinging for dear life. The creature loses its grip on the cliff and falls to the ground below, falling so far and lands on the ground, creating a crater in the gravel. You take 6 damage from the fall, but you made it to the ground roughly safely.
[1/11/2015 5:27:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: alright that’s pretty badass
[1/11/2015 5:28:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: and you were scared
[1/11/2015 5:28:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah but I DID take 6 more damage
[1/11/2015 5:28:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: haha
[1/11/2015 5:29:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: would you rather have just fallen? haha
[1/11/2015 5:29:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: haha, nope.
[1/11/2015 5:29:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: is it dead?
[1/11/2015 5:29:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: …………………………………yes
[1/11/2015 5:29:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: I kick it to make sure
[1/11/2015 5:29:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: it gets up and stabs you
[1/11/2015 5:29:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: wat
[1/11/2015 5:30:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: it doesnt
[1/11/2015 5:30:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/11/2015 5:30:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay
[1/11/2015 5:30:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: I yell for Kaiden. “I think the fall killed it!”
[1/11/2015 5:30:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I can see that!” he shouts back, climbing back down
[1/11/2015 5:31:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That was really painful!”
[1/11/2015 5:32:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: He finishes his climb “I’d hope so”
[1/11/2015 5:33:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: I heal myself for 5 with lay on hands
[1/11/2015 5:34:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: You can do ten now
[1/11/2015 5:34:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: I know
[1/11/2015 5:34:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: I’m gonna heal Kaided
[1/11/2015 5:34:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: Kaiden*
[1/11/2015 5:35:22 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Thanks” he says, moving his shoulder back into alignment
[1/11/2015 5:35:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: “no problem, my friend.”
[1/11/2015 5:36:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I’ve only heard legends of creatures such as this” he says moving the beak with his foot
[1/11/2015 5:36:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: “what is it?”
[1/11/2015 5:37:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: “A hook horror. From deep underground. Why it is on the surface i will never know, but this monster is deadly in the Underdark.” he pulls a sword and cuts off the beak
[1/11/2015 5:38:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What can you do with the beak?”
[1/11/2015 5:38:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Sell it. Make it into a horn. Whatever you want to do with it” he tosses it to you. “Its your kill”
[1/11/2015 5:40:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Why thank you, Kaiden. A horn sounds great. I’ll have to work on that some time. Shall we keep going?”
[1/11/2015 5:40:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Bridge should be in sight just after the pass”
[1/11/2015 5:41:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Alright, let’s go!” I get on my horse and GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooo
[1/11/2015 5:45:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: You finally see the exit of the pass, as it reverts to shrubland and forests, and, standing in between the two cliff faces of the pass you see the Bridge. On the far left and right of your vision you see two enomorous peaks, snow covering the top of them. Stretching the entire distance between the two peaks you see an arc of dwarven architecture, with statues and carvings made on the side of Bridge. Along the sides of both cliffs, you can see little towns made from a variety of architecture, some elven, some human, even a few gnomes in their ground holes. The gray stone has been worked to such perfection, its almost magical.
[1/11/2015 5:46:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: Awesome
[1/11/2015 5:46:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: WE KEEEEP GOING
[1/11/2015 5:47:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: Like the idea for an out of the box dwarven city? haha one actually exposed
[1/11/2015 5:47:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: Yeah, it’s cool because it’s still protected by the mountains
[1/11/2015 5:48:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: anyways. Night is falling and it will still be a full days travel away. Set up camp?
[1/11/2015 5:48:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: yussss
[1/11/2015 5:49:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Last night together” Kaiden says, sitting down at the freshly made fire with a piece of wood and a knife
[1/11/2015 5:50:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Are you leaving when we get there?”
[1/11/2015 5:51:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I promised to deliver you to the Bridge and thats what I have done. Matthias needs everyone”
[1/11/2015 5:52:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’ve enjoyed my time with you, friend.”
[1/11/2015 5:54:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods. He hands you a pouch
[1/11/2015 5:55:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: I OOOOPEEENNNN THE PATCH
[1/11/2015 5:56:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see a bunch of blue and purple herbs “this is Dartfoot. Taking a small bit of it will keep you awake, giving you the benefits of a full night’s sleep without needing to sleep. Too much of it, and it becomes a potent tranquilizer. Use it with care, and don’t take it two nights in a row.”
[1/11/2015 5:58:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you, Kaiden. This means a lot.”
[1/11/2015 5:59:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Its a trick of the Rangers.” he nods and also tosses you the piece of wood he was whittling “present this to any ranger and they’ll know you as a friend”
[1/11/2015 6:00:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: “thank you, my friend. This will be very helpful.”
[1/11/2015 6:00:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: I’m gonna go eat okay?
[1/11/2015 6:00:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: thats fine
[1/11/2015 6:48:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: sorry about that
[1/11/2015 6:48:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: youre human its fine
[1/11/2015 6:49:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/11/2015 6:51:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Rest friend. I’ll be on watch for the night” Kaiden says and looks for a tree to climb
[1/11/2015 6:53:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thanks, Kaiden. Though we’ve only been travelling together a short while, I’ve come to believe we’ve become great friends. Hopefully after tomorrow we meet again.” I RESSSSTTTT
[1/11/2015 6:54:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: You do so
[1/11/2015 6:54:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: WOOOOOOOOOOOO
[1/11/2015 6:54:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: do you want to wake up haha
[1/11/2015 6:55:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: NEVER
[1/11/2015 6:55:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah I wake uo
[1/11/2015 6:55:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: up*
[1/11/2015 6:56:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: You find Kaiden over the fire, cooking some food, the morning light of dawn creeping in from the tree canopy, and his quiver of arrows on the ground next to him.
[1/11/2015 6:57:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Good morning, Kaiden. I see you’ve gotten some food.”
[1/11/2015 6:58:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Don’t doubt my hunting” he says flatly
[1/11/2015 6:59:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Ha, I would never. You’re a great marksman.”
[1/11/2015 7:00:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: He shrugs and hands you a plate
[1/11/2015 7:00:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thanks.” I EAAAAAATTTTTTT
[1/11/2015 7:01:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Just a short time till we reach the Bridge” he says, saddling his horse and throwing his quiver on as you eat.
[1/11/2015 7:03:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: I FINISH EATING AND THEN PUT MY SHIT ON AND SADDLE MY HHOOOORRRSSSEEEE
[1/11/2015 7:04:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: SO YOU DO
[1/11/2015 7:04:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: WOOOOOOOOooo
[1/11/2015 7:04:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: I then get on my HORSE
[1/11/2015 7:05:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: AND YOU ACCOMPLISH THAT AS WELL YOU ARE THE BEST ADVENTURER
[1/11/2015 7:05:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: YES I WIN
[1/11/2015 7:06:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: then?
[1/11/2015 7:06:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: We RIIIIIIIIIIDE
[1/11/2015 7:11:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: you ride for several more hours, until finally you see the gates of the Bridge. You see a fifty foot tall statue of Moradin, holding a hammer and chisel in crossed arms in front of you, with a stone gate in front of it, reaching as high as his waist. Numerous Dwarves in heavy armor patrol the top of the gate, as well as a few on the ground in front of it. To the right, you see a side street going down the city wall, leading to the other species settlements, including a tavern sitting within view of the gate, obviously tailored to people trying to gain entry.
[1/11/2015 7:13:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Kaiden, how do we gain entry?”
[1/11/2015 7:14:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I do not know. I haven’t heard of a foreigner gaining entry in quite some time”
[1/11/2015 7:14:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: “… great…”
[1/11/2015 7:15:22 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Alas. It is time for me to leave. I must make haste to get back to Matthias”
[1/11/2015 7:15:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you for leading me here. You’re a great friend. I will see you sometime soon, I’m sure.”
[1/11/2015 7:16:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods and begins to ride off
[1/11/2015 7:17:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: “goooodbyyyeee!”
[1/11/2015 7:17:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: He waves his hand behind him
[1/11/2015 7:17:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: I GO TO THE TAAAVVVERRRNNNNN
[1/11/2015 7:20:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: The tavern is dingy, but in good condition. Most the tables are full, with mostly humans and elves, but there is an odd dwarf or halfling in the mix. The bartender is short and stout woman that could easily be confused for a dwarf. She laughs with some of the patrons at the bar before going to the back room to fetch more ale. Some of the people near the door quiet down when you enter, but most don’t pay you much attention.
[1/11/2015 7:22:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to the bartender
[1/11/2015 7:25:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: She comes from the back, dragging a new barrel behind her “What can I getcha?” she says, noting your presence but not looking at you
[1/11/2015 7:25:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Actually, I wanted to ask how to get into the city.”
[1/11/2015 7:28:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Good luck wit tat” she says, “most peeple want ta, not aloot get ta”
[1/11/2015 7:28:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Is there a way to get in that you know of?”
[1/11/2015 7:29:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Ye could try sweet talkin te gards. Or show autority te enter”
[1/11/2015 7:30:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: (FACEPALM)
[1/11/2015 7:31:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: (I AM AN IDIOT
[1/11/2015 7:31:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: )
[1/11/2015 7:31:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: “ah, thank you miss.”
[1/11/2015 7:31:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Are ye a Helmit”
[1/11/2015 7:31:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I am, why do you ask?”
[1/11/2015 7:32:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Somebadi came bai, teld me te give dis to a Helmit” she pulls out a letter
[1/11/2015 7:33:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Oh, thank you very much. I wonder who it’s from.” I take it
[1/11/2015 7:33:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: She nods and moves on to customers that are actually payin
[1/11/2015 7:34:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/11/2015 7:34:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: I leave and read the letter outside
[1/11/2015 7:41:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: "Uriel.

I believe the situation is more dire than we feared. The attack on you was part of a multitargeted attack, on your family and the Kings. It was a coup by a man named Tiberius, who raised an army of mercenaries and bandits, and who came in and slaughtered King Adrian in his throne. Most of your family died defending him, and Tiberius sent agents to kill the rest of the two families, seeking a destruction of all those that contest his will.

Helmite worship has been banned in the capital of Aelud, and the Bandit King has already cracked down on the city, to quell any resistance that might overthrow him before he could recover his strength. As of the last information I have gathered, you and your eldest brother are all that remains of the Avacyn family, and the King’s daughter and youngest son are all that remains of the Royal Family.

You must be very cautious my friend. Tell few your real name, and fewer your quest (whatever it may be). I shall remain here, using the contacts that I have to see if I can find any information on this Bandit King.

Be careful my friend,
[1/11/2015 7:41:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: Neren
[1/11/2015 7:43:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: well shit
[1/11/2015 7:44:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: WELLLL
[1/11/2015 7:44:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to the guards at the front gate
[1/11/2015 7:44:39 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Halt, who goes there?”
[1/11/2015 7:45:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hello” I pull out the cloak clasp or whatever. “I was told this would grant me permission to enter?”
[1/11/2015 7:46:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: The guard approaches you and takes it in his hand. He shouts in dwarven to someone, and a dwarf in much nicer comes up, looks at it, and looks back at you “Who are ye?”
[1/11/2015 7:47:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I am a young traveler from the monastery of Helm. I’ve come here on a quest from my masters.”
[1/11/2015 7:49:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods his, and motions for you to walk with him. He shouts something in Dwarven and the gate opens up. “Come with me lad”
[1/11/2015 7:50:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: I follow
[1/11/2015 8:03:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: r u ded
[1/11/2015 8:22:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: HELLOOOO?
[1/11/2015 8:47:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: sorry, had military briefings
[1/11/2015 8:47:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: Ah
[1/11/2015 8:47:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: dats coo’
[1/11/2015 8:47:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: i’ll need a few more minutes
[1/11/2015 8:47:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: ay
[1/11/2015 8:47:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: kay*
[1/11/2015 9:04:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: He leads you through the winding halls of the Dwarven city. It is obvious that alot of the architecture was designed to have the shelter of a mountain over the heads of the city, but the exposure to the elements. Metallic components have given away to rust, but most of the city remains relatively unfazed by it. You quickly arrive at one of the biggest buildings in the city, though the dwarven script remains foreign to you, you are able to piece together that this is a governmental building due to the cadre of guards in ceremonial armor, and the business of the exterior.
“Go to the Grand Hall, straight ahead” the dwarf that was escorting you says with a grunt.
[1/11/2015 9:05:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you sir, and what will I do there?”
[1/11/2015 9:05:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: He walks away, without answering
[1/11/2015 9:05:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: ruuudue
[1/11/2015 9:05:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: ruuude*
[1/11/2015 9:05:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: anyway
[1/11/2015 9:06:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: I walk into the Grand Hall
[1/11/2015 9:08:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: You find a dining table, ornate in everything, from the several to the etchings on it. It stretches about 50 ft long, and surrounded by numerous dwarves. Most of them are old, with silvery or gray hair, but a few. The dwarf sitting at the head of the table, young and red haired stands up “Welcome Knight” he says boistrously, and lets out a small belch
[1/11/2015 9:10:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hello friends! I was sent on a quest to come here.”
[1/11/2015 9:11:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I am well aware lad. We’ve been expecting you for quite a while” he sits down, and motions to the seat next to him. the dwarf sitting there gets up and moves to the end of the table. You notice how he didn’t point to the actually empty seat next to him
[1/11/2015 9:12:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go and sit in the one he pointed to
[1/11/2015 9:12:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Tell me a bit about yerself Knight” he says, motioning for the servers to bring you some food
[1/11/2015 9:14:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well, I hail from the monastery of Helm. My masters told me to come here.”
[1/11/2015 9:14:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: “There must be more to ye than that!”
[1/11/2015 9:16:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well, what do you want to know?”
[1/11/2015 9:17:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Your personality lad! What you like, what you’ve accomplished! Just something for me to get a judge on you!” he roars with laughter at this and takes another big gulp from his flagon
[1/11/2015 9:18:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well, I killed a vicious creature on the way to the Bridge.” HOLDS UP BEAK
[1/11/2015 9:18:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That’s an accomplishment.”
[1/11/2015 9:19:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: The dwarf takes a look at it and roars again with laughter “Well you’ll be a good protector thats fer sure”
[1/11/2015 9:19:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Protector?”
[1/11/2015 9:20:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods over to the end of the hall, where you see a human woman, one of the most beautiful you’ve ever seen, wearing a flowing gown and a gold and emerald circlet on her head, surrounded by four dwarves in ceremonial armor.
[1/11/2015 9:22:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: “wow…”
[1/11/2015 9:24:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: She sits down in the empty chair in front of you, her auburn hair perfectly made. She nods politely to you and says “Good evening Lord Noble” to the dwarf you were talking to
[1/11/2015 9:29:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: The dwarf says “Princess Venetia, may I introduce Sir…er…” he stammers, realizing he doesn’t know your name
[1/11/2015 9:36:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Sir Uriel, your majesty.”
[1/11/2015 9:38:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Charmed” she says “Does this mean?” she says to the dwarf, who gives her a small nod and grimace. “We knew that your time here would be shortlived lass” he answers to her and turns to you “when are you two leaving?”
[1/11/2015 9:49:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “… I’m sorry?”
[1/11/2015 9:51:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “You’re here to pick up the princess correct? To continue her tour? To be honest I was expecting Sir Tellin again,” the dwarf says, talking as if you know what he’s talking about
[1/11/2015 9:53:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Sir, I’m afraid I have no idea what you are talking about. Sir Tellin… Died when our monastery fell under attack. The last thing he said to me was ‘the Bridge’ and that’s why I’m here.”
[1/11/2015 9:54:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Monastery was attacked?..” the princess says, a shocked look spread across her face “they trained my father’s men better than any other group of instructors”
[1/11/2015 10:00:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: going to bed, night
[1/11/2015 10:00:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: niiight
[1/15/2015 6:08:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: ow
[1/15/2015 6:18:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: hellow
[1/15/2015 6:20:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: such pain from pt
[1/15/2015 6:20:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: much ouch
[1/15/2015 6:20:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: :(
[1/15/2015 6:21:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: anywho, where did we leave off?
[1/15/2015 6:21:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: I dunno
[1/15/2015 6:22:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: you should find out
[1/15/2015 6:22:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: I was just talking to the princess
[1/15/2015 6:22:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: And? and what about
[1/15/2015 6:22:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: Uhhh I just told the dwarf guy that tellin is dead
[1/15/2015 6:24:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: [Sunday, January 11, 2015 9:54 PM] chasen.hutchison:

<<< “The Monastery was attacked?..” the princess says, a shocked look spread across her face “they trained my father’s men better than any other group of instructors”
[1/15/2015 6:24:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: ah yes
[1/15/2015 6:26:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: go
[1/15/2015 6:26:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: one sec
[1/15/2015 6:27:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: “unfortunately, there must have been a spy in our midst that let them in.”
[1/15/2015 6:28:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: “True helmites would never do this” she mutters, moving her hair so that you can see a pendant of a staring eye on a left hand gauntlet, the symbol of Helm
[1/15/2015 6:29:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I see you are also a Helmite.”
[1/15/2015 6:31:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: “There is a reason that the royal family prefers the Guardians of the Vigilent to act as his Royal Guard.” she says nodding to you, “Yours is a respectable order, Sir Knight”.

You notice that most the dwarves around you have quieted their conversations, listening in on the two of yours. Even the Lord Noble has stopped belching to permit himself to be curious
[1/15/2015 6:32:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you, my lady. I suppose Sir Tellin wanted me to carry out his duties then.”
[1/15/2015 6:33:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: “What duties did he tell you about?” she asks smartly, narrowing her eyes a little to gauge you, or to judge you, you cant tell
[1/15/2015 6:33:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: “He never told me of any.”
[1/15/2015 6:34:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: “he just told me to come here.”
[1/15/2015 6:36:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: She moves her eyebrows up in feign surprise “Sir Tellin was always a secretive one. Him and my father decided that me and my younger brother should see the outlying realms if we were to ever rule the land. Thus he sent me to the Dwarven Halls under the tutelage of the Lord Noble here, and my brother to the Elven Forests. Only him and Tellin were aware of the full plan, not even the Grandmasters knew much.”
[1/15/2015 6:38:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: “hmm, I had no idea. What were you and him going to go do?”
[1/15/2015 6:39:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Just stay here, learn the ways of the other cultures surrounding the kingdom, and when Sir Tellin came, we would move on to the next area.”

Now there is dead silence, the clanging of cutlery on plates ceased completely
[1/15/2015 6:41:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I think that’s what he sent me here to do.”
[1/15/2015 6:42:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Given the fact that Sir Tellin is dead, it may be better to bring me back to my Father,” she says, finishing her meal and sliding the plate a little bit
[1/15/2015 6:42:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That may be smart.”
[1/15/2015 6:43:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: “When are we leaving Sir Knight?”
[1/15/2015 6:43:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Whenever you want, my lady.”
[1/15/2015 6:44:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I am yours to command. I shall pack my things and await word from you” she gets up bows to the Lord Noble, and leaves
[1/15/2015 6:47:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: What time is it?
[1/15/2015 6:47:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: Late in the evening, sun has set a while ago.
[1/15/2015 6:47:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: I leave and go to a tavern
[1/15/2015 6:48:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you stand up to go, you hear the Lord Noble stand up as well “Sir Knight? You dropped this”
[1/15/2015 6:48:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What is it?”
[1/15/2015 6:49:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see him holding the letter you recieved, containing the events of the past few days
[1/15/2015 6:49:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you, Lord Noble.”
[1/15/2015 6:50:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: I TAKE IT
[1/15/2015 6:50:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: HE LETS YOU TAKE IT
“Please, I have a room nearby that you could rest in. Most of the city…doesn’t like strangers”
[1/15/2015 6:51:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you very much.” I GO TO THE ROOOM
[1/15/2015 6:51:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: so you do
[1/15/2015 6:53:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: what do you do there
[1/15/2015 6:54:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: I SLEEEEEp
[1/15/2015 6:54:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: Not gonna remember the letter?
[1/15/2015 6:54:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: I READ THE LETTER
[1/15/2015 6:55:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: [Sunday, January 11, 2015 7:41 PM] chasen.hutchison:

<<< "Uriel.

I believe the situation is more dire than we feared. The attack on you was part of a multitargeted attack, on your family and the Kings. It was a coup by a man named Tiberius, who raised an army of mercenaries and bandits, and who came in and slaughtered King Adrian in his throne. Most of your family died defending him, and Tiberius sent agents to kill the rest of the two families, seeking a destruction of all those that contest his will.

Helmite worship has been banned in the capital of Aelud, and the Bandit King has already cracked down on the city, to quell any resistance that might overthrow him before he could recover his strength. As of the last information I have gathered, you and your eldest brother are all that remains of the Avacyn family, and the King’s daughter and youngest son are all that remains of the Royal Family.

You must be very cautious my friend. Tell few your real name, and fewer your quest (whatever it may be). I shall remain here, using the contacts that I have to see if I can find any information on this Bandit King.

Be careful my friend,
Neren
[1/15/2015 6:55:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: one sec kinda busy
[1/15/2015 6:55:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: k
[1/15/2015 6:56:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: sorry bb
[1/15/2015 7:15:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: ALRIGHT
[1/15/2015 7:15:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: NOW THAT THAT’S OUT OF THE WAY
[1/15/2015 7:15:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: what was it
[1/15/2015 7:16:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: Casey
[1/15/2015 7:16:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: ANYWAY
[1/15/2015 7:16:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: I know about the letter
[1/15/2015 7:16:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: I read it already yeah?
[1/15/2015 7:17:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: OH
[1/15/2015 7:17:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: i understand then. yes. just wanted to make sure you remembered it
[1/15/2015 7:17:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: I just did
[1/15/2015 7:17:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: her dad’s DEAD
[1/15/2015 7:17:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: yeah…..
[1/15/2015 7:17:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: well tomorrow is gonna be an awkward conversation
[1/15/2015 7:18:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: lets see how you handle it
[1/15/2015 7:18:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: TO TOMORROW THEN.
[1/15/2015 7:19:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: You wake up to the sounds of birds chirping inside the Dwarven city (never thought i’d say that) and the sound of knocking on your door
[1/15/2015 7:19:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: Hahaha
[1/15/2015 7:19:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Who is it?”
[1/15/2015 7:20:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Tis the Lord Noble lad” you hear a gruff voice say from behind the door
[1/15/2015 7:20:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Oh, hello!” I open the door not naked
[1/15/2015 7:21:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see the man dressed in finery, even trimmed his beard and braided it a little more "Ready te go then?
[1/15/2015 7:22:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: "So, that letter you gave back to me? I may have misread something… The princess’ father is…. dead. The people that attacked the monastery also killed the king.
[1/15/2015 7:22:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/15/2015 7:23:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: A shocked expression comes over his face then looks up and balks “How can you misread such a thing boy?!”
[1/15/2015 7:24:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I made a big mistake. Here, read it yourself.” I GIVE HIM THE LETTERR (god I fucked up)
[1/15/2015 7:27:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Hmm….you must tell the lass. But tell her that a courier came that at night to deliver this to you. If its one thing I can tell you lad, you need the girl’s trust,” he says stroking his beard thoughtfully and subconciously
[1/15/2015 7:28:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Yes, that is a good idea. My sincerest of apologies for overlooking this dreadfully important detail.”
[1/15/2015 7:28:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: He grumbles a little “she’s down in the Great Hall.” he says sadly and walks away
[1/15/2015 7:32:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: ugh
[1/15/2015 7:32:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to her
[1/15/2015 7:37:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: You find her in a simple travelers robe, baggy enough to hide most of her things, though you suspect from the way she stands that she is wearing some type of armor. A simple sword hands on her waist and she looks deeply into the fireplace thats lit, stirring the pot on top of it. She looks at you as she hears your armored approach, “I am ready to leave if you wish Sir Knight.”
[1/15/2015 7:37:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: are we alone?
[1/15/2015 7:38:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yes mainly, there are a few royal guards milling about at the other end of the hall, but nothing too much
[1/15/2015 7:38:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: “My lady, I must tell you some grave news I found out last night.”
[1/15/2015 7:39:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: She looks at you, no emotions running across her face, just analyzing the situation
[1/15/2015 7:40:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “A courier came to me in the night. I got this message.” I give her the letter. “Your father has been killed.”
[1/15/2015 7:41:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: deception check
[1/15/2015 7:41:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh thank god
[1/15/2015 7:41:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: nat 20
[1/15/2015 7:43:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: “How?”
[1/15/2015 7:44:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: “It was the same group of people that attacked the monastery.”
[1/15/2015 7:44:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: "Who are these people?
[1/15/2015 7:54:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I truly have no idea. They just came and attacked and left, looking for me. They are trying to kill the royal family and my family.”
[1/15/2015 7:54:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Why your family?”
[1/15/2015 7:55:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I am a member of the Avacyn family.”
[1/15/2015 7:56:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Ah I see. Our fathers were very close then?”
[1/15/2015 7:56:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Yes, they were. Unfortunately, my brother and your brother are the only other two people in either family that yet live.”
[1/15/2015 7:57:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Besides us? Then we must find them. Having the son of the King, no matter how young would prove just cause for people to fight back” she says firmly walking to the Lord Noble and saying something in Dwarven
[1/15/2015 7:58:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Good idea, my lady. My sincerest apologies for bringing you this news.”
[1/15/2015 7:59:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: “It is not your fault Sir Knight.” she says shouldering her pack. “Shall we go?”
[1/15/2015 8:01:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Yes, my lady. Where, though, will we go? To where your brother is?”
[1/15/2015 8:02:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes. Your elder brother was assigned to escort my brother. They should be in the Elven Forests, among their camps”
[1/15/2015 8:02:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Ah, okay. We make for the elven forests then.” Is that where I met Kaiden and what’s his face?
[1/15/2015 8:03:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: No you were at the Forests of Erebor
[1/15/2015 8:03:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/15/2015 8:03:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay
[1/15/2015 8:03:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: TO THE ELVEN FORESTS
[1/15/2015 8:04:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a survival check!
[1/15/2015 8:05:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: 6
[1/15/2015 8:09:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: You take the Princess through the paths, but you find yourself on an unknown road. You reach a gorge, with a rope bridge spanning the length of it (several hundred feet) you acknowledge that it is the only way to continue on towards (what you think) is the elven forests. The bridge is too bad for you to ride your horses across
[1/15/2015 8:09:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: well that’s not good
[1/15/2015 8:10:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: how far are the elven forests?
[1/15/2015 8:10:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: Unknown
[1/15/2015 8:10:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Do you know how far the elven forests are?”
[1/15/2015 8:11:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: “No. We are headed the right way, but I am unfamiliar with the region”
[1/15/2015 8:11:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: “You know for a fact this is the correct direction? Because I don’t know for sure.”
[1/15/2015 8:12:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes. I would have told you a while ago if I knew we were going the wrong direction”
[1/15/2015 8:13:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Alright… Should we leave our horses to cross this bridge? I’m not sure it’s a good idea, but I can’t think of another way.”
[1/15/2015 8:14:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I’ll follow your lead Sir Knight. I can tell my horse to go back to the Bridge, and attach your horse to it” she offers
[1/15/2015 8:15:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Let us do that. This is Sir Tellin’s horse, so I have a sentimental attachment to him.”
[1/15/2015 8:15:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: She whispers something in the ears of her horse and ties a rope around the saddles
[1/15/2015 8:17:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “How do you do that?”
[1/15/2015 8:18:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: “My family has some of the finest trained horses in the kingdom, this one was a gift by a former Ranger of Erebor to my father, who gave it to me as a birthday present.” she explains motioning to the bridge “Shall we?”
[1/15/2015 8:19:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “let’s go.” I CROSS THE BRIDGE
[1/15/2015 8:20:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: She follows suit….and made a stealth check
[1/15/2015 8:20:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/15/2015 8:21:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: Remember your armor puts you at disadvantage
[1/15/2015 8:21:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: 11
[1/15/2015 8:21:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: and make a dex save
[1/15/2015 8:22:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: nat 20 holy shit
[1/15/2015 8:23:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: You feel your leg give out on a plank dipping it down, knocking you off balance, but you reach both arms out and grab the rope bindings, holding on as your foot dangles loosely
[1/15/2015 8:23:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Phew” I get back up and KEEEEP GOING
[1/15/2015 8:26:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you put your feet back on the bridge you make it halfway across, then you see two men approach the end of the bridge in front of you, one is holding a scimitar, and the other is clapping, a grin on his face “Bravo” he shouts
[1/15/2015 8:27:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Who goes there?”
[1/15/2015 8:29:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: “It is I, Damian of the Twin Roads!” he bows as he says his name, doing a little flourish with his hands “And you are on my Twin Roads friend!” he shouts
[1/15/2015 8:29:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Your roads?”
[1/15/2015 8:31:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Why yes! I own this little patch of land, and in order to keep the bridge in good repair, one must pay a toll” he explains, a pseudo look of seriousness crossing his face
[1/15/2015 8:32:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: “this bridge hasn’t been repaired in years!”
[1/15/2015 8:33:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Thats because people believe that they can waltz through the land without paying the toll. Thus thats why I have my…friends to help make sure that people actually pay now” a smile crosses his lips, add a perception check
[1/15/2015 8:33:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/15/2015 8:34:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: nevermind
[1/15/2015 8:34:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: uh ok
[1/15/2015 8:34:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: what do you do
[1/15/2015 8:35:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “how much is the toll?”
[1/15/2015 8:35:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Well, how much you got?” he flashes a grin again
[1/15/2015 8:35:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: how much I got? like 1 gold?
[1/15/2015 8:36:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: and you know, the princess
[1/15/2015 8:36:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “a few gold.”
[1/15/2015 8:38:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: Well hand over your swords along with whatever swords you have, and we’ll let you pass
[1/15/2015 8:38:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Our swords?? I think not! I guarantee you no harm if you let us through, but I refuse to give you my sword.”
[1/15/2015 8:39:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make an intimidate check
[1/15/2015 8:39:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: that there is a natural 20
[1/15/2015 8:39:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: god damn
[1/15/2015 8:40:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: well, still you gotta say something
[1/15/2015 8:42:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “You will let us through, without taking our weapons. If you don’t, I will not hesitate to steel myself.” I put my hand on the hilt of my blade
[1/15/2015 8:44:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: The grin disappears from his face but looks at him and his friend “Look, my friends here have blades to the support of the bridge. On any slight problem from me, they cut the bridge, plummeting you straight into the river below.” he points at the large river a below you, as it flows through a valley and ends in a waterfall about half a mile away
[1/15/2015 8:46:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/15/2015 8:46:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: well
[1/15/2015 8:47:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’ll gladly give you gold, but we need weapons to survive.”
[1/15/2015 8:48:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: “That my friend is not good enough. Selling those weapons could help this bridge here….” you see the ‘friend’ put his blade on the rope
[1/15/2015 8:48:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: AGH I DON’T WANT THEM TO TAKE MY WEAPONS
[1/15/2015 8:49:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Whats it gonna be ‘friend’?” the highwayman says
[1/15/2015 8:51:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: I am so frustrated with the circumstances
[1/15/2015 8:51:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: how far away is the princess from me?
[1/15/2015 8:51:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: She’s right next to you
[1/15/2015 8:51:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: “what would you suggest we do?” I whisper
[1/15/2015 8:53:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: “We might be able to survive the water, but they may have people waiting down there for us. Could also cut the bridge to get closer to the water to make it less painful, or try to climb up the gorge, as long as they dont have good enough reflexes to cut it right after we do”
[1/15/2015 8:54:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: “so giving them our weapons is out of the question?” I WHISPER
[1/15/2015 8:55:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Of course. Besides, they might recognize me if we get close”
[1/15/2015 8:57:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: “you have a point…. Okay, get ready to cut the left rope with your sword while I cut the right. on three. One, two, three!” I PULL MY SWORD OUT AND IN ONE MOTION CUT THE BRIDGE MYSELF LIKE A BADASS
[1/15/2015 8:58:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: KYAHHHHHH
[1/15/2015 8:58:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: She pulls her blade out, much better made (and you suspect silver infused with the weapon) and cuts the rope at the same time. Make a dex save to catch the bridge and hitch a ride a little
[1/15/2015 8:58:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: 19
[1/15/2015 8:59:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: You wrap your hand around a rope and see the river moving fast towards you, the princess gripping the boards next to you
[1/15/2015 9:00:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is there a beach or anything?
[1/15/2015 9:00:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: there is a shore, but i wouldn’t try jumping onto that
[1/15/2015 9:00:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay
[1/15/2015 9:01:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attempt to jump into the water
[1/15/2015 9:01:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: make a dex acrobatics check
[1/15/2015 9:02:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/15/2015 9:04:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: you manage to leap at the right time, but you see the boards break on the princess too early, causing her to fall towards the rocky parts of the river. you manage to splash safely into a deep, clear section, but make a strength athletics check to get to shore
[1/15/2015 9:05:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: non nat 20
[1/15/2015 9:05:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: did you account for armor disadvantage?
[1/15/2015 9:06:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: I have a disadvantage for athletics checks?
[1/15/2015 9:07:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: for swim checks, it is basically this system’s armor check penalty. cause swimming in heavy (weight wise) armor is a bitch
[1/15/2015 9:07:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12 then
[1/15/2015 9:08:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: You make it to the shore, with the armor weighing you down. Any closer to the water fall and you know you wouldn’t have been able to beat the current. Make a perception check
[1/15/2015 9:08:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: 9
[1/15/2015 9:08:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooo
[1/15/2015 9:09:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see a rope hanging along the side of the gorge, next to the newly destroyed bridge and two figures climbing down it
[1/15/2015 9:10:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is the princess alright?
[1/15/2015 9:10:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: make another spot check
[1/15/2015 9:10:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/15/2015 9:10:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: at advantage cause you’re actively looking for her and knew where she last was
[1/15/2015 9:11:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/15/2015 9:11:55 PM] chasen.hutchison: you see her unconcious and spread eagled on some of the rocks
[1/15/2015 9:12:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: HAWT
[1/15/2015 9:12:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: loljk
[1/15/2015 9:12:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is she at shore?
[1/15/2015 9:13:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: no, the rocks are still in the river, the current may be strong enough to take her unconscious body to the waterfall
[1/15/2015 9:13:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go get her, taking note of how long it will take the guys coming down to get here
[1/15/2015 9:14:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a athletics check to swim out to the rocks
[1/15/2015 9:15:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/15/2015 9:15:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: if it wasn’t at disadvantage it woulda been 20
[1/15/2015 9:15:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: You make it to the rocks relatively safely, but you know that swimming with her unconcious body will make it worse
[1/15/2015 9:17:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: double disadvantage? X
[1/15/2015 9:17:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: XD
[1/15/2015 9:17:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: doesn’t exist haha
[1/15/2015 9:17:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/15/2015 9:17:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: did I ever get her name?
[1/15/2015 9:18:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: Venetia
[1/15/2015 9:18:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: you should really have a notebook or something when you play haha
[1/15/2015 9:18:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: I try to wake her up. “Venetia, wake up!” yeah I should sorry
[1/15/2015 9:19:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: She does not
[1/15/2015 9:20:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: i smack her not hard enough to do damage
[1/15/2015 9:20:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: strength check
[1/15/2015 9:21:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: 20
[1/15/2015 9:21:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: non nat
[1/15/2015 9:21:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: she opens her eyes, looks into yours and slaps you back “don’t ever slap me”
[1/15/2015 9:23:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I need you to wake up. I’m very sorry, my lady. But I may have saved your life. You may punish me in any way you see fit when we get out of this river.” Did she take damage from the fall that I can tell? or was she just knocked unconsious
[1/15/2015 9:24:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: She took damage too, she is bleeding a little and very bruised. “I’ll need help getting out, I can’t feel my leg”
[1/15/2015 9:24:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look at her leg
[1/15/2015 9:24:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: is it broken?
[1/15/2015 9:25:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: medicine check
[1/15/2015 9:25:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/15/2015 9:26:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: doesn’t look like it
[1/15/2015 9:26:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: I use lay on hands on her for 5 health and see if that helps
[1/15/2015 9:26:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: It does
[1/15/2015 9:26:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: good
[1/15/2015 9:26:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “can you feel your leg now?”
[1/15/2015 9:26:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: she nods
[1/15/2015 9:27:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Let’s get you out of the river then.” i help her out
[1/15/2015 9:27:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: athletics
[1/15/2015 9:28:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: 17
[1/15/2015 9:29:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: the two of you make it out of the river, spluttering from the fall and what not, and she collapses onto the shore. Two men in leather armor, with a strange symbol approach, scimitars drawn “I see you don’t give up, I like that. Shame I must kill you now” you see Damian and his friend
[1/15/2015 9:30:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: I get up and draw my sword and shield, ready to fight.
[1/15/2015 9:30:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: He grins, roll initiative
[1/15/2015 9:31:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: 8
[1/15/2015 9:32:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: he moves up to attack you whats your ac
[1/15/2015 9:32:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/15/2015 9:34:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: Damian comes up, swinging his blade, nicking your side for 2 damage while the other highwayman tries to lunge at you, give you an easy parry and opening to make an attack
[1/15/2015 9:34:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: free attack? :D
[1/15/2015 9:35:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: nope, just your turn haha
[1/15/2015 9:35:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/15/2015 9:36:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: i use thundering smite
[1/15/2015 9:36:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: on Damien
[1/15/2015 9:37:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: which is 2d4 extra damage and a knockback if they fail a strength check
[1/15/2015 9:37:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: 2d6
[1/15/2015 9:37:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/15/2015 9:37:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: alright
[1/15/2015 9:38:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: still have to hit him with a melee attack though
[1/15/2015 9:38:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah
[1/15/2015 9:38:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: with a 19
[1/15/2015 9:38:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/15/2015 9:39:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14+6+4 so 24 damage?
[1/15/2015 9:39:39 PM] chasen.hutchison: kill
[1/15/2015 9:39:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: wow
[1/15/2015 9:39:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: alright
[1/15/2015 9:40:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: huh
[1/15/2015 9:41:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: I say a short pray and then yell, “In Helm’s name, I will defeat you!!!” and my blade glows, and I swing my sword and slash him across the chest, shooting him back and hitting the ground, DEAD
[1/15/2015 9:43:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: the other guy, shooken up by the wicked smite, looks at you in fear, his blade making a slash, but you hit it clumsily out of his hands, landing in the river behind you
[1/15/2015 9:44:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: can i attack for nonlethal?
[1/15/2015 9:45:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: yep
[1/15/2015 9:45:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: i do that
[1/15/2015 9:45:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: do i take a penalty?
[1/15/2015 9:45:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: nope
[1/15/2015 9:45:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: hmmm
[1/15/2015 9:46:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: i swing at him with the flat of my blade
[1/15/2015 9:46:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14
[1/15/2015 9:46:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/15/2015 9:46:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12 damage
[1/15/2015 9:46:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: out
[1/15/2015 9:46:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooohooo
[1/15/2015 9:49:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: I strike him in the head and he’s knocked out. I make sure he’s safe though, not in danger of falling in the water or anything while he naps. I go over to Damien’s body and utter a prayer. “It did not need to be this way. I tried to reason with you. I’m sorry.” Then I go over to the princess. “My lady Venetia, are you alright?”
[1/15/2015 9:50:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: While looking over the two bodies you saw the symbol of the same group that attacked the monastery, a chimera carrying 3 arrows and a sword
[1/15/2015 9:50:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh shit
[1/15/2015 9:50:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I am fine Sir Knight, I just need to rest a little”
[1/15/2015 9:51:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I noticed that those men were part of the same group that attacked the monastery and killed your father.”
[1/15/2015 9:52:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Find out what he knows. I will tend my wound and set up a camp next to this river, this gorge will prove safe enough for the night.” she puts her hand on her leg and it starts glowing gold as a healing spell is cast on it
[1/15/2015 9:53:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: did I tell her my name?
[1/15/2015 9:54:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: I don’t think so
[1/15/2015 9:54:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: She knows it, the dwarf introduced you
[1/15/2015 9:54:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/15/2015 9:55:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “alright my lady, I will find out what he knows.” I walk over to him and sit next to him
[1/15/2015 9:55:34 PM] chasen.hutchison: he wakes up a while later, and gets up and runs away
[1/15/2015 9:55:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: I catch him?
[1/15/2015 9:55:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: before he gets up?
[1/15/2015 9:56:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: dex save
[1/15/2015 9:56:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/15/2015 9:56:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: you manage to tackle him before he gets fully in gear
[1/15/2015 9:57:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: do I have rope or anything?
[1/15/2015 9:57:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/15/2015 9:57:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: I tie him up
[1/15/2015 9:57:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: sleight of hand check
[1/15/2015 9:58:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: 9
[1/15/2015 9:59:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: its eh enough
[1/15/2015 10:00:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/15/2015 10:00:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: I hold him down to make sure he can’t get away
[1/15/2015 10:00:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Just kill me!” he shouts, squirming underneath you
[1/15/2015 10:01:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: “No. You’re going to tell me what you know of this faction you’re from.”
[1/15/2015 10:02:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: “What faction??”
[1/15/2015 10:03:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: I grab his insignia. “This one. Who are you, and why did you attack my monastary?”
[1/15/2015 10:03:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: monastery*
[1/15/2015 10:05:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: "Look, we are just being paid extra alright? Damian ran into some of these guys serving some man named the “Bandit King”. He controls most of the bandits in the Kingdom to extort certain people, in exchange for protection and immunity. I don’t know about no monastery!"
[1/15/2015 10:06:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Where is this Bandit King?”
[1/15/2015 10:07:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Bandit King was last marching a group to Aelud. From what I hear, he usurped King Adrian. But truth is a hard commodity these days”
[1/15/2015 10:08:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: “you are right, that is what happened. What else do you know?”
[1/15/2015 10:09:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: "Nothing. Traffic has been a little light on the road for quite a few tendays, so Damian was thinking about going full time into the King’s army, getting us some food as opposed to living in a tent and starving every other week
[1/15/2015 10:12:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: am I able to detect evil?
[1/15/2015 10:12:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/15/2015 10:12:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: I detect evil on him
[1/15/2015 10:12:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: IS HE EVIL
[1/15/2015 10:13:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: he’s wicked, like a bandit would be, but not necessarily evil. just morally flexible and uncaring
[1/15/2015 10:15:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’m sorry to hear that you’re starving, and I’m truly sorry that I had to kill Damien.”
[1/15/2015 10:15:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: btw that whole sequence was super badass
[1/15/2015 10:15:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: with the bridge and the cutting of the rope
[1/15/2015 10:15:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: and the falling into the river
[1/15/2015 10:16:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: and killing damien
[1/15/2015 10:17:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: i’m trying to explore my fight sequence abilities, less of the straightforward more of the actiony
[1/15/2015 10:18:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: Yeah, I like that. It makes things more interesting, rather than “I attack. I move.” ya know?
[1/15/2015 10:18:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: Yeah, thats what i wanted to work on
[1/15/2015 10:18:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: although the fights by themselves can get pretty crazy with more people, like having a wizard in your party
[1/15/2015 10:18:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: well you’re doing a fine job
[1/15/2015 10:19:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: but for only having a small party, you gotta make it your own crazy.
[1/15/2015 10:19:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah
[1/15/2015 10:20:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: anyway
[1/15/2015 10:20:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: I say what I said up there
[1/15/2015 10:20:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: about being sorry
[1/15/2015 10:20:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Damian wasn’t the smartest”
[1/15/2015 10:23:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Unfortunately he was not. He definitely had my lady and I in a bit of a pickle though. We were lucky to get out alive.” I let out a chuckle. “Unfortunately, there’s not much I can do for you. I’ll give you some of my food if you want it, but you must leave and never come back. I would suggest you find a better lifestyle, maybe go to a city and start a new life. If I ever see your face again in combat though, I will not hesitate to kill you.”
[1/15/2015 10:24:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: he nods, still underneath you
[1/15/2015 10:25:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: “If you want, you may come eat with us. afterwards I will bring you to the top of the gorge, put a bag on your head, and lead you into the forest so you cannot find us. Either that or I give you the food now and do the same.”
[1/15/2015 10:26:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I will go now…” he says, still squirming
[1/15/2015 10:27:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Alright then. Whatever you like.” I untie him, making sure I still have a grip on him. I need some material, a bag or something to put over his eyes. Do I have such a thing?
[1/15/2015 10:28:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: yeah, you scrounge something up
[1/15/2015 10:28:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay, I lead him to the rope and make him climb it
[1/15/2015 10:28:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: WAIT
[1/15/2015 10:28:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: before I do that
[1/15/2015 10:29:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: I make sure he doesn’t have anything sharp on him
[1/15/2015 10:29:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: and I get him some food
[1/15/2015 10:29:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: tk, he had a dagger in his boot
[1/15/2015 10:30:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: I take the dagger from him. “don’t worry, I’ll give this back to you when we get into the forest.” I grab him some food and make him climb the rope.
[1/15/2015 10:30:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: He follows your instructions to the letter
[1/15/2015 10:32:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: When we get up I give him the food and blindfold him, then lead him into the forest
[1/15/2015 10:33:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: He takes it in his hand and follows your instructions not wanting to anger you
[1/15/2015 10:33:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: good for him! I would cut him so fast
[1/15/2015 10:34:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’m glad you’re being so cooperative.”
[1/15/2015 10:34:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: “We wouldn’t have crossed you if we knew you were a paladin of Helm”
[1/15/2015 10:36:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well I couldn’t have known that. I’m sorry to have done this to you, friend. It wasn’t my intention to kill today. I need to keep my lady safe, though, and we need our weapons. You understand, right?” I lead him into the forest, remembering how to get back, but making sure to take winding paths to make sure he doesn’t know which way I came from.
[1/15/2015 10:36:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: make a survival check
[1/15/2015 10:37:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/15/2015 10:37:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: you do so
[1/15/2015 10:38:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: woot
[1/15/2015 10:40:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: When we get to a place I deem suitable, lay him down on his chest. “Do not get up from this spot for 10 minutes. If you do I will have to knock you out. after that you may take off the blindfold. Do not attempt to follow me or I will have to do worse. I am leaving your dagger here. I hope you find your way in life. Goodbye.” I put his dagger down and go back
[1/15/2015 10:41:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: He follows your instructions. I gotta go now. gnight, i’ll be free tomorrow most likely
[1/15/2015 10:44:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: niiight
[1/17/2015 6:33:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: shup
[1/17/2015 6:34:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: eyyy
[1/17/2015 6:34:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: whatupppp
[1/17/2015 6:34:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: hangin’. I did pretty well at the tournament. went 7 and 4. (7 wins 4 losses)
[1/17/2015 6:35:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: noice, good job
[1/17/2015 6:36:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: thanks bb
[1/17/2015 6:36:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: SO
[1/17/2015 6:36:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: Where were we
[1/17/2015 6:37:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: you were just returning to the camp by the lake i believe
[1/17/2015 6:40:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: ah
[1/17/2015 6:40:58 PM] Hunter Campbell: yiss
[1/17/2015 6:41:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: I RETURN TO CAMP
[1/17/2015 6:43:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: You return to the little fire by the river, where you find Princess Venetia lying all the items in the two of your packs close by letting them dry out. You notice how she has taken off the robe and her light blue/purple scale mail armor, and is wearing simple peasant clothes. Laying close to the fire are two bed rolls one on each end of the fire. She nods to you as you approach
[1/17/2015 6:44:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hello, my lady. Thank you for setting up camp.”
[1/17/2015 6:46:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I had to do something, while you were releasing him”
[1/17/2015 6:47:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: "good point. How are you feeling after the fall?
[1/17/2015 6:47:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/17/2015 6:47:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: "Nothing a few spells won’t mend. And better than a sword through the gut
[1/17/2015 6:48:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What should we do with Damien’s body?”
[1/17/2015 6:49:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Send it into the river. Its more than the scoundrel deserves.” she scowls a little about it
[1/17/2015 6:50:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: “If you say so, my lady.” I go over to the body and see if he’s carrying anything valuable
[1/17/2015 6:52:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: Nothing really, just his scimitar, leather armor bearing the crest of the Bandit King, and a few extra daggers. His coinpurse is empty, just a sack hanging off his belt
[1/17/2015 6:53:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: brb
[1/17/2015 6:53:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: k
[1/17/2015 6:57:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: back
[1/17/2015 6:58:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: Okay, I’ll put his body in the river, per the princess’ request
[1/17/2015 6:59:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: he splashes in harmlessly
[1/17/2015 7:02:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: I utter a prayer to him and go back to camp, and take off my armor
[1/17/2015 7:02:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: and heal myself
[1/17/2015 7:04:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you approach the Princess walks up to you noticing the blood coming off your side as you take off your armor “Were you wounded?” she asks bluntly
[1/17/2015 7:09:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: “yes, Damien nicked my side.”
[1/17/2015 7:09:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: does she also have low charisma?
[1/17/2015 7:09:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: "No, but she doesn’t have much experience with non-nobles haha
[1/17/2015 7:10:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: no "
[1/17/2015 7:10:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: she said that?
[1/17/2015 7:10:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: XD
[1/17/2015 7:11:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: thats what the ’ n" ’ was for haha
[1/17/2015 7:11:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: ooohhh
[1/17/2015 7:11:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay
[1/17/2015 7:11:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: aaaanyway
[1/17/2015 7:13:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Do you need assistance?”
[1/17/2015 7:13:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: “No, thank you. I have a few healing powers of my own.”
[1/17/2015 7:13:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: I still have 5 points of lay on hands available, yeah?
[1/17/2015 7:13:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/17/2015 7:14:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: I lay on hands myself
[1/17/2015 7:14:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: you lay your hands on yourself
[1/17/2015 7:14:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: WOOOO
[1/17/2015 7:14:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: euphemism
[1/17/2015 7:15:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: heh heh heh
[1/17/2015 7:19:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: “This gorge seems to be safe enough, we probably won’t need someone on watch” she says laying down on her mat. She throws a blanket on as she does so. “What else can go wrong over the next few days though?”
[1/17/2015 7:20:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: I lay down. “We could be eaten by tigers or werebears, hahahaha.”
[1/17/2015 7:24:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Well we don’t have any wood to knock on. But my family is now dead, what status I used to have was erased overnight, I have no idea if my brother is alive, or specifically where he is, and on top of it, I am probably one of the most wanted people in the kingdom.” you hear her voice over the fire
[1/17/2015 7:30:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: “These last few days have not been very good to either of us.”
[1/17/2015 7:32:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: a few seconds of silence, “i’m sorry, i completely forgot your family was killed too..”
[1/17/2015 7:34:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: “It is fine, my lady. I know you didn’t mean anything by it.”
[1/17/2015 7:40:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Still. We should get some rest, have a long journey tomorrow.”
[1/17/2015 7:41:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Alright, my lady. Have a good night.” SLEEEEEEEP
[1/17/2015 7:43:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: Sleep?
[1/17/2015 7:43:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: I sleep
[1/17/2015 7:43:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: yes
[1/17/2015 7:44:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: You wake up at the light of dawn reflecting off of the river’s water
[1/17/2015 7:44:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: I get up and make sure everything is alright
[1/17/2015 7:47:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: The princess is still asleep but the fire is dead. Make a perception check
[1/17/2015 7:47:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/17/2015 7:49:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: You don’t notice anything suspicious, though you see some animal tracks nearby, from a rabbit
[1/17/2015 7:50:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: I have javelins yeah?
[1/17/2015 7:50:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah
[1/17/2015 7:50:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: I very carefully follow them
[1/17/2015 7:51:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: make a survival check
[1/17/2015 7:52:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: natural 20 :P PERFECT USE OF THAT
[1/17/2015 7:53:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: you find its lair, with the rabbits mate and babies
[1/17/2015 7:53:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: woooohooo
[1/17/2015 7:54:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: I kill them
[1/17/2015 7:54:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: hard
[1/17/2015 7:54:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: coup de grace
[1/17/2015 7:55:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: WOOOO
[1/17/2015 7:55:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: how much rabbit do I have?
[1/17/2015 7:55:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: you have two whole rabbits
[1/17/2015 7:56:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: fuckin’ yes
[1/17/2015 7:56:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol I go back to camp and cook the rabbits
[1/17/2015 7:59:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: the smell of the rabbits wakes up the princess and she gets up, “I thought we only had rations?” she mumbles, rolling up the mat
[1/17/2015 8:00:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I found some rabbit tracks shortly after I woke up, and found its lair.”
[1/17/2015 8:02:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Never had rabbit before”
[1/17/2015 8:04:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “It’s definitely not terrible. Better than the rations, for sure. It’s a bit stringy, but edible. I hope you don’t hate it. Sadly we don’t have any seasonings.”
[1/17/2015 8:07:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Next friendly person we meet, we’ll make sure to ask them,” she chuckles a little
[1/17/2015 8:08:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “heh, that’s not a bad idea at all.” IS THE FOOD DONE?
[1/17/2015 8:09:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes it is done
[1/17/2015 8:09:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: I GIVE HER THE BIGGER RABBIT AND EAT MINE
[1/17/2015 8:09:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: aww how sweet haha
[1/17/2015 8:10:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: XD
[1/17/2015 8:11:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: “thanks.” she bites into it “you know, i had some of the finest chefs in the kingdom, but i never really had good food till i left the castle”
[1/17/2015 8:12:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: “In my experience, the non-gourmet food is the best. How is the rabbit?”
[1/17/2015 8:14:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Great”
[1/17/2015 8:14:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’m glad it suits your tastes, my lady.” I finish eating and start breaking down camp
[1/17/2015 8:17:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: “…could you stop calling me that and Princess?. I mean if i’m on the run, it doesn’t make sense to advertise me like that” she whispers, almost too quietly to hear
[1/17/2015 8:19:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That’s fine. What would you like me to call you?”
[1/17/2015 8:19:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Just Venetia”
[1/17/2015 8:20:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Okay, Venetia.”
[1/17/2015 8:20:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: are you able to play tomorrow?

[1/18/2015 4:46:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: I ONLY HAVE TILL 6
[1/18/2015 4:47:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: so you have been traveling on the road for several hours on foot, the two of you sweating under the sunlight and exertion. You come across a lonely building lying next to the road. Its in good repair, but you can tell it doesn’t get the most attention. Next to it is a signpost in worse repair
[1/18/2015 4:48:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: I try to read it
[1/18/2015 4:49:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: Two arrows show the way, one says “the Bridge” and the other, pointing towards the opposite way says “Hovel”
[1/18/2015 4:50:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hovel?” I say out loud
[1/18/2015 4:50:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Apparently” you hear Venetia say behind you
[1/18/2015 4:50:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go knock on the door
[1/18/2015 4:51:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: btw
[1/18/2015 4:51:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: I can play after 6
[1/18/2015 4:51:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: but I won’t be able to roll
[1/18/2015 4:51:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/18/2015 4:52:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: Actually no I will be
[1/18/2015 4:52:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: Nvm
[1/18/2015 4:53:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: The door swings open and you see a small inn, with a man behind a desk sitting next to a staircase leading to the second floor
[1/18/2015 4:53:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hello my good sir.”
[1/18/2015 4:54:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: “’owdy. Ye from Hovel?” he says, leaning against the desk
[1/18/2015 4:55:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: “we came from The Bridge”
[1/18/2015 4:55:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: (i’ll have to switch to my phone later)
[1/18/2015 4:55:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: kay
[1/18/2015 4:55:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: like, text?
[1/18/2015 4:55:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Eh? Never anyone came FROM the Bridge, errey time is TO the Bridge” he chortles a little
[1/18/2015 4:56:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: (hopefully i’ll have service to use skype on my phone, but maybe)
[1/18/2015 4:56:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: (Okay, whatever works)
[1/18/2015 4:56:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: “We need to know how to get to the Elven forest”
[1/18/2015 4:58:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Elven forest? Das to the east I tink” he points the way to Hovel
[1/18/2015 4:58:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Past Hovel?”
[1/18/2015 4:59:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Aye. Could ye do me a small favor?” he says, reaching underneath the desk
[1/18/2015 4:59:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What do you need?”
[1/18/2015 5:00:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Could ye give this to me brother? He’s a watchman in Hovel.” He hands over a pouch of what you can easily tell to be coins
[1/18/2015 5:01:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Of course, friend.”
[1/18/2015 5:01:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: “When you get there, take 50 coins for yourself.” he slides it forward
[1/18/2015 5:02:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Are you sure? I can just give the whole thing to your brother.”
[1/18/2015 5:02:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Fer yer trouble”
[1/18/2015 5:03:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: “If you insist, my friend.” what time is it?
[1/18/2015 5:03:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: Couple hours past midday
[1/18/2015 5:04:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: I ask Venetia, “should we stay the night or keep on?”
[1/18/2015 5:05:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Dear sir. How far is it to Hovel?” she asks the innsman
“Bout a couple hours. You’d make it there right around sundown i bet” he says
[1/18/2015 5:06:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you. I’ll be sure to give your brother these coins.” I LEAVE WOOOOO
[1/18/2015 5:07:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: SO YOU DO
[1/18/2015 5:07:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: TO HOVEL WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo
[1/18/2015 5:10:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: You arrive at the outskirts of Hovel, the quaint little town should have an aura of hospitality around it, except for all the roads leading into the town are blocked by broken wagons and other crude barricades. Smoke rises from several places within the town, and an unknown stench fills the air around it. Venetia draws her blade “There is something wrong with this town.”
[1/18/2015 5:11:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: “yes, very wrong.” I draw my sword and cautiously proceed
[1/18/2015 5:12:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: Venetia takes you to a small hole in the barricade and slips in, taking off her pack to be smaller in profile
[1/18/2015 5:12:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: I do the same
[1/18/2015 5:12:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a dex acrobatics check
[1/18/2015 5:12:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/18/2015 5:13:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: You get stuck
[1/18/2015 5:13:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: great
[1/18/2015 5:14:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: I struggle to get free
[1/18/2015 5:14:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: Another check
[1/18/2015 5:14:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/18/2015 5:14:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: You manage to slip free, and see Venetia laughing silently to herself at you
[1/18/2015 5:15:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: I furrow my brow at her
[1/18/2015 5:15:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: and proceed carefully
[1/18/2015 5:16:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see a small wooden church, general store, and town hall surrounding the main square. In the middle of the square you see a pyre of corpses, burning and charring the bodies, but nobody seems to be around you.
[1/18/2015 5:17:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to the town hall
[1/18/2015 5:17:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: You reach the door, the windows all boarded up
[1/18/2015 5:18:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: I knock
[1/18/2015 5:18:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear some scuttling and someone opens the door, you see a young woman, as she opens the door only an inch and say “Who be you?”
[1/18/2015 5:19:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I am Uriel. I come in peace, and I’m wondering what happened here.”
[1/18/2015 5:20:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Open the door woman! They don’t knock!” you hear a voice bark shortly followed by a man as he steps outside. A bandage covers his head, and one eye, and he wears scale mail with a heavily damaged mace at his hip. “By the gods. Someone has come”
[1/18/2015 5:21:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What has happened here?”
[1/18/2015 5:23:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Foul magics. The town’s wizard went mad several tendays ago, and began performing evil experiments in the marsh. Slowly, skeletons and other creatures began to attack the town, every night after sundown. We haven’t been able to send anyone out for help”
[1/18/2015 5:24:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: “How can I help?”
[1/18/2015 5:26:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Help us secure the town for another night.” he says nodding to the fast descending sun, “it’ll be a tough one.”
[1/18/2015 5:26:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I will help you. Also, the tavern owner a few hours to the west wanted me to give his brother something.”
[1/18/2015 5:28:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods “my brother. give it to me, we shall talk later” he says outstretching his hand
[1/18/2015 5:28:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: “here you go.” I give him the whole bag
[1/18/2015 5:29:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Go to the chapel, speak to Watchman Cornelius. He shall tell you what he wants.”
[1/18/2015 5:30:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Alright. We will make it through the night.”
[1/18/2015 5:30:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: I GO TO THE CHAPEL
[1/18/2015 5:30:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods. The chapel is blocked and barricaded quite well too
[1/18/2015 5:31:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: I knock
[1/18/2015 5:31:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: The door opens and you see another man in scale mail looking you. "eh?
[1/18/2015 5:32:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: “hello, I’m here to help you fight the undead.”
[1/18/2015 5:34:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Eh? Good. Come in,” he opens the door further, motioning you in with his slinged arm
[1/18/2015 5:34:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What do I need to do to help?”
[1/18/2015 5:35:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: “How good are you with a bow?”
[1/18/2015 5:35:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I can shoot okay, but I am much better with a sword.”
[1/18/2015 5:37:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods, “Ok. You can man one of the windows. Kill anything that approaches it. Should something break its way into the chapel, I want you on containment.” he points to Venetia but she says “I am versed with many healing spells. I’ll aid you all that way.”
[1/18/2015 5:38:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I can also heal a bit.”
[1/18/2015 5:39:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: "I still want you on containment Sir, " you can tell he’s looking at the symbol of Helm that you have exposed on your cloak clasp
[1/18/2015 5:41:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Okay. I will do my best.”
[1/18/2015 5:44:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear cries of the wounded from behind you as you mount you window. Your tiny view of the outside watches the last glimmer of sunlight disappear beneath the crust of the earth. You hear someone behind you mutter “may ilmater shoulder our burden with us”. You see Watchman Cornelius push pews in front of the main doors.
[1/18/2015 5:46:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: “We will make it through the night. Helm will guide us through.”
[1/18/2015 6:16:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: I’m back here!
[1/18/2015 6:24:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: Mkay
[1/18/2015 6:24:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: Is it close enough for me to attack it through the window?
[1/18/2015 6:24:31 PM] chasen.hutchison: In one turn
[1/18/2015 6:29:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: What do you do?

[1/23/2015 5:58:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: alright, if you insist haha
[1/23/2015 5:59:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: where were we?
[1/23/2015 6:08:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: I’m waiting for the undead to attack
[1/23/2015 6:10:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see one of the corpses from the funeral pyre in front of your window, not burned to a crisp, just lightly charred rise from the ground and and begins to shuffle towards your boarded window, what do you do?
[1/23/2015 6:11:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: Can I attack it the through the window?
[1/23/2015 6:12:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: yeah, and it can attack you back
[1/23/2015 6:12:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: I try to stab it
[1/23/2015 6:12:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14
[1/23/2015 6:13:55 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit

[1/23/2015 6:17:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: kill
[1/23/2015 6:18:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: It shambles up to me as I stab it in the head through the window.
[1/23/2015 6:18:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear the shattering of boards as three undead things break in, collapsing on to top of the lone guard and start hacking him to pieces
[1/23/2015 6:19:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: I sprint over and combat the zombies
[1/23/2015 6:19:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: roll init

[1/23/2015 6:24:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: don’t kill
[1/23/2015 6:24:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: I slash it, hoping to get it off of the helpless guard, but to no avail
[1/23/2015 6:25:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: whats your ac
[1/23/2015 6:26:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/23/2015 6:28:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: all the zombies turn and start wailing on you, one manages to bash your shoulder with its bare bone, sharp enough to pierce through a gap and go through into your flesh for 4 damage
[1/23/2015 6:30:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I need some help over here!” I say
[1/23/2015 6:30:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: and I attack the one I hit before

[1/23/2015 7:55:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: so I said what I did
[1/23/2015 7:56:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: He swings his morningstar around, smashing it into your shield, causing you to slide back a few inches and deeper into the wood surrounding you. The air reverberates with the metallic shockwave that was created in the process
[1/23/2015 7:57:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: dude that’s so badass
[1/23/2015 7:58:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: ;)
[1/23/2015 7:58:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: you
[1/23/2015 7:59:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: I searing smite
[1/23/2015 8:00:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: With a small prayer to Helm, my blade glows with divine fire and I yell, “Helm take you!”
[1/23/2015 8:00:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: atk
[1/23/2015 8:00:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: 25

[1/23/2015 8:02:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: plus it has to make a save or be on fire
[1/23/2015 8:02:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: i meant that you have done so far
[1/23/2015 8:02:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: 19+12
[1/23/2015 8:02:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: last round I did 12, this I did 19
[1/23/2015 8:04:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: it doesnt catch fire, describe
[1/23/2015 8:06:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: I stab my flaming sword into its chest, and a flames explode out the exit wound, but the ogre doesn’t catch fire.
[1/23/2015 8:10:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: The ogre growls and completely abnormal growl, the only sound you’ve heard it make since the battle started and he grabs your arm as the blade sinks in, holding you for a second as he reaches high with his morningstar, pulling you down and slamming you in the back with the bludgeoning object, denting your armor. The momentum of your pull allows you to slide your blade out of his flesh
[1/23/2015 8:11:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: no damage?
[1/23/2015 8:11:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: sorry, 9
[1/23/2015 8:11:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: ah
[1/23/2015 8:11:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: I was like wow, I’m badass
[1/23/2015 8:11:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: I’m down 13 hp, I’m at 9 lol
[1/23/2015 8:14:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: As that happens you hear the twanging of a bowstring and someone shouting on the balcony that surrounds you “Helmite! Get him under the chandelier!”
[1/23/2015 8:14:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: how far back is it?
[1/23/2015 8:14:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: Its about 45 feet
[1/23/2015 8:15:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: can I take a full action to run that far?
[1/23/2015 8:16:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: you could run that far yes
[1/23/2015 8:16:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: would the ogre have an aoO?
[1/23/2015 8:18:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: if you disengaged no, but then you couldn’t make it
[1/23/2015 8:19:08 PM] Hunter Campbell: hmm
[1/23/2015 8:20:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: Can I cast a spell without provoking?
[1/23/2015 8:26:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: no
[1/23/2015 8:26:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: fack
[1/23/2015 8:26:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: well I disengage and run back as far as possible
[1/23/2015 8:27:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: tk you’re almost there, but the beast is lumbering after, right on your heels. The ground shakes a little with each step, and the twanging of more bowstrings you hear behind around you but hardly seem to faze him
[1/23/2015 8:27:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: I keep running
[1/23/2015 8:28:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: you make it directly under the chandelier
[1/23/2015 8:29:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: I run past the chandelier so they can drop it on the ogre
[1/23/2015 8:32:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: you hear the twanging of the bowstring again as the arrow collides with the thin chain, causing it to snap and fall on top of the ogre zombie. it lands on its back and resting on top of the still frame. with a rustle of clothes, you hear the sounds of boots landing from a jump behind you
[1/23/2015 8:33:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look behind myself
[1/23/2015 8:33:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: to see who it is
[1/23/2015 8:34:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see Kaiden, his armor and cloak covered with mud and blood, holding his long bow in his left hand and approaching the ogre zombie’s corpse
[1/23/2015 8:35:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Kaiden, I am so glad to see you! Thank Helm!”
[1/23/2015 8:37:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: He pulls his few arrows out of the zombie and turns around. “I come with dire news my friend” he says, but before another word could be said, you see the chandelier fly off the zombie and collide with the ranger, knocking him into some pews and trapping him underneath the chandelier. the zombie gets up, and roars, some of its entrails leaking out of the chest wound you’ve created
[1/23/2015 8:40:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Kaiden!” With much rage, I use divine smite. My blade glows with divine energy as I run over, roaring, ‘FOR HELM!!!!" I leap into the air and swing my blade down onto it
[1/23/2015 8:40:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: atk
[1/23/2015 8:40:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: 17
[1/23/2015 8:41:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/23/2015 8:41:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12+4+5, 21
[1/23/2015 8:41:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: kill
[1/23/2015 8:44:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: I slash down, my blade effortlessly cleaving its skull in half, and continuing down its chest. I touch the ground and leap back, letting the ogre fall in front of me.
[1/23/2015 8:47:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: Its corpse slumps to the ground, at rest for a final time. From the outside of the chapel, you hear a demonic howl coming from the surrounding forest, and a burst of wind rushes in, deafening you and letting leaves scatter into the demolished building. Everyone of the surrounding guards grips their blades just a little tighter, but nothing happens, the attack seems to have stopped.
[1/23/2015 8:47:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: "Thank Helm that’s over…."
[1/23/2015 8:47:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: I run over to Kaiden
[1/23/2015 8:47:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear him stirring underneath the rubble
[1/23/2015 8:48:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: I try to help him out
[1/23/2015 8:48:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: strength check
[1/23/2015 8:48:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: 21
[1/23/2015 8:49:39 PM] chasen.hutchison: you lift it just enough to let the ranger out, a large gash on the top of his head and some bruising is the only real mark of the blow, but hes stumbling around a little, disorientatedly]
[1/23/2015 8:50:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: I use lay on hands for 5 to heal him a bit
[1/23/2015 8:50:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: he recovers from his concussion but his head is still bleeding. he sits down on one of the few pews still surviving the assault
[1/23/2015 8:51:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go try to wrap his head
[1/23/2015 8:51:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: he waves you off. “i’ll be fine, other people need more”
[1/23/2015 8:52:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: "Okay, my friend. What dire news were you going to tell me before you were so rudely interrupted?
[1/23/2015 8:52:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/23/2015 8:53:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Prince has been killed. And your brother taken to the capital city to be put on trial”
[1/23/2015 8:55:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: “my brother??”
[1/23/2015 8:55:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: “The PRINCE??”
[1/23/2015 8:56:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes. Apparently he was guarding the young prince, and felt something wrong when the caravan stopped coming. He saught to return the prince to his family, but were attacked by the Bandit King’s forces. They killed the boy on the spot”
[1/23/2015 8:57:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: “And they think my brother killed the prince?”
[1/23/2015 8:58:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: “No, he was protecting the prince, but since the Bandit King is in power, your brother openly defies him. The ‘king’ cant have that”
[1/23/2015 8:59:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: “This is dire news indeed. What do you propose we do?”
[1/23/2015 9:00:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: “We need to find the Princess, she is the only one unaccounted for, and the only tangible link we have to the Throne. But more direly, we need to stop these attacks on this town”
[1/23/2015 9:01:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Well, fortunately for us the princess is here…… Somewhere.”
[1/23/2015 9:02:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: "What?
[1/23/2015 9:03:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: "
[1/23/2015 9:03:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Let’s find her.” I go to where she was
[1/23/2015 9:05:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: You find her with her hands on one of the wounded guards, making a chant and a golden light come underneath her palms. A look of relief covers the guards face as he relaxes, and falls unconscious
[1/23/2015 9:05:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “How are you doing, Venetia?”
[1/23/2015 9:07:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: Before she can respond, you see Kaiden take a knee and say “my liege” and bow his head. Aside from the wails of the wounded, the room grows quiet. All eyes on the three of you. the princess sighs and rubs the sweat off her head
[1/23/2015 9:08:39 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Great…” she says and shakes her head
[1/23/2015 9:10:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: I whisper to Kaiden, “I may have forgotten to tell you that Venetia is in hiding right now… Do not act like she is the princess.” To Venetia, “Venetia, I need to talk to you in private.”
[1/23/2015 9:11:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: She nods “Brother Brody, do you have an office?” she turns to the priest of ilmater who nods and points you to the door. the princess gets up and walks into it, slamming the door a little behind her.
“That would have been nice to know my friend. "
[1/23/2015 9:13:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Yes, indeed. Sorry I didn’t tell you earlier.”
[1/23/2015 9:14:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’m sorry, Venetia, I may have forgotten to tell my dear friend Kaiden that you are in hiding…”
[1/23/2015 9:15:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I’ve gathered.” she says, sitting down in the chair behind the single desk. “Why did you want me here? There are wounded people that need me”
[1/23/2015 9:16:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Kaiden brought me some very dire news. He told me that recently the prince was killed by the bandit king… And my brother is on trial for openly defying the bandit king.”
[1/23/2015 9:17:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: A horrified look crosses her face. “By Helm…that means i am the only one left in my family…”
[1/23/2015 9:18:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: “As well as you, dear Knight,” she nods absently to you
[1/23/2015 9:19:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “well, my brother yet lives, but not likely for long. I’m deeply sorry for your loss, my lady.”
[1/23/2015 9:21:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The people will rally behind you my lady” Kaiden blurts to which the princess gives a questioning look
[1/23/2015 9:22:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: Aelud is the main city yeah?
[1/23/2015 9:23:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/23/2015 9:23:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: “what I think he means, my lady, is that we need to go to Aelud and dethrone the Bandit King.”
[1/23/2015 9:23:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “we will have the support of the people.”
[1/23/2015 9:25:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Not to Aelud, but yes my lady. There are people throughout the kingdom that will support you. Whether we show them hope, or buy them off. Going to Aelud would be a death trap for you” he says, taking out a map of the kingdom. “but we need to stop the attacks her before we can think about doing anything”
[1/23/2015 9:26:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That is a good point, Kaiden. Let’s deal with the threat here first.”
[1/23/2015 9:27:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: oh by the way level up
[1/23/2015 9:29:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: WOOOOOOOOo
[1/23/2015 9:29:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: LEVEL 3
[1/23/2015 9:29:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: what’s that get me?
[1/23/2015 9:30:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: you get to choose a sacred oath and 1d10 hp
[1/23/2015 9:31:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: is it 1d10 plus con?
[1/23/2015 9:31:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: also… sacred oath?
[1/23/2015 9:32:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes and you can choose one of three sacred oaths, each giving you different benefits. the oath of devotion, the oath of the ancients and the oath of vengeance
[1/23/2015 9:32:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: what do they all do?
[1/23/2015 9:33:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: so I gain 12 hp, bringing me up to 34
[1/23/2015 9:35:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: devotion is more holy and pure, ancients is more naturey, and vengeance is punishing people
[1/23/2015 9:35:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: well then, devotion.
[1/23/2015 9:37:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: check phone
[1/23/2015 9:41:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay cool
[1/23/2015 9:42:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Talk to one of the guards and figure out what is going on, then solve the issue. Kaiden, i hereby deputize you into the Guardians, under the command of Sir Avacyn here.”
[1/23/2015 9:43:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: “alright then Kaiden, would you come with me?”
[1/23/2015 9:43:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: he nods
[1/23/2015 9:45:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go to one of the guards
[1/23/2015 9:45:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: You go to the one you talked to earlier, Watchman Cornelius
[1/23/2015 9:47:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Cornelius, you said a mage is making all these undead attack the town?”
[1/23/2015 9:48:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes, the former hedge wizard of the town. He ran a small shop on the edge of town.”
[1/23/2015 9:49:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Do you know where he resides now?”
[1/23/2015 9:50:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: “He fled down after he began to grow crazy, nobody knows where he went. His experiments were discovered later, in the shop”
[1/23/2015 9:50:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you, Cornelius. You’ve been a great help.” I go to his shop
[1/23/2015 9:51:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: Its locked
[1/23/2015 9:51:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: I KICK IN THE DOOR
[1/23/2015 9:51:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: Strength
[1/23/2015 9:51:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: nat…. 20
[1/23/2015 9:52:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: the door shatters into so many pieces
[1/23/2015 9:52:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: so hard that it broke me into urdu
[1/23/2015 9:52:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: hahaha
[1/23/2015 9:53:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go in
[1/23/2015 9:54:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: so you do. You find a small room, with a desk and alchemical ingredients everywhere. behind the desks are large tomes, and there is a ladder next to the bookcase leading up to the second floor
[1/23/2015 9:55:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: I search for anything of value
[1/23/2015 9:56:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: make a perception check
[1/23/2015 9:56:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14
[1/23/2015 9:57:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: where
[1/23/2015 9:57:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: where what
[1/23/2015 9:57:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: are you searching
[1/23/2015 9:57:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: the bottom floor
[1/23/2015 9:58:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: no, what area on the bottom floor
[1/23/2015 9:58:25 PM] Hunter Campbell: the desk
[1/23/2015 10:00:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: you find 10 gp, a few lists of ingredients and other misc items
[1/23/2015 10:01:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: I take the gold…. and search the bookcase
[1/23/2015 10:01:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: perception check
[1/23/2015 10:01:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/23/2015 10:02:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: you find a bunch of books on arcane theory, herbs of the area, but one book seems out of place, a tome on the citadels of the gods
[1/23/2015 10:03:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: uhhh…. huh
[1/23/2015 10:03:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: I take a look at that
[1/23/2015 10:03:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: so you do, page by page, flipping randomly, what
[1/23/2015 10:04:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/23/2015 10:04:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: XD
[1/23/2015 10:04:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: I take it with me
[1/23/2015 10:04:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: put it in my pack
[1/23/2015 10:04:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: and then go up the ladder
[1/23/2015 10:04:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: i was legitimately asking haha
[1/23/2015 10:06:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah I know

[1/23/2015 10:07:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: so like I just put it in my pack
[1/23/2015 10:07:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: tk
[1/23/2015 10:08:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: and go up the ladder
[1/23/2015 10:10:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: you see a small bed, a fireplace with a stew over that, and a long table covered in blood and strange implements you’ve nevers seen before
[1/23/2015 10:11:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Kaiden, do you know what we’re looking at?”
[1/23/2015 10:12:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: “They said experiments. I guess he was working on people, or bodies at least”
[1/23/2015 10:13:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “this is disgusting…” I search the room. “kaiden, help me search.”
[1/23/2015 10:13:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: he nods, using his sword to lift things

[1/23/2015 10:14:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/23/2015 10:16:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: you find some charred things that stink in the pot in the fireplace, but nothing real tangible. you also find a purse containing 20 gp
[1/23/2015 10:16:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: brb
[1/23/2015 10:16:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: k

[1/23/2015 10:20:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: “let me look at those.” what language are they?
[1/23/2015 10:20:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: some unknown one, it just looks like scratches or tally marks
[1/23/2015 10:21:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: I take it
[1/23/2015 10:21:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: I search… some more?
[1/23/2015 10:21:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: you don’t find anythin
[1/23/2015 10:22:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go back down and search down there

[1/23/2015 10:24:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: “We found a few things at the wizard that is creating these undead’s shop.” I show her the book and the notes

[1/23/2015 10:26:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Hmm..” she turns the book outside and notices that one page is more heavy, takes that page and turns to it, showing a page so heavily covered with notes and scrawlings that it is easy to tell what he wanted. all of it in the same writing
[1/23/2015 10:27:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: What is on the page?
[1/23/2015 10:29:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Its about the fallen citadel of Helm. When the schism happened several centuries ago, Helm punished his followers by removing the citadel from this plane of existence by creating a portal in the swamp it was located in. All that remains they say is of a single tower, rising above the swamp.”
[1/23/2015 10:30:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: brb
[1/23/2015 10:30:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: k
[1/23/2015 10:37:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: okee
[1/23/2015 10:37:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: “where is this swamp?”
[1/23/2015 10:37:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: this is getting so intense
[1/23/2015 10:38:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: “No one knows. I have a feeling these notes hold the key.”
[1/23/2015 10:38:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: "do we know anyone who knows this language?
[1/23/2015 10:38:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/23/2015 10:39:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I know someone who might” you see the wounded watchman you first talked to when you arrived, the brother of the inn keeper
[1/23/2015 10:40:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “who would that be, friend?”
[1/23/2015 10:41:25 PM] chasen.hutchison: “a witch, living in the forest, one of the mages of Highever, cast out of her position and forced to live in exhile. Her story is a tragic one here in Hovel,” he explains
[1/23/2015 10:43:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: brb again
[1/23/2015 10:44:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: k
[1/23/2015 10:45:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Do you know where she is?”
[1/23/2015 10:46:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Somewhere nearby, in the forest. She wanted to return home, but Highever reached word to the guard first, and she was kept away”
[1/23/2015 10:50:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Who would know exactly where she is?”
[1/23/2015 10:50:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: “No one. You’d have to find her in the forest. Good thing you have a ranger with you”
[1/23/2015 10:50:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: What time is it?
[1/23/2015 10:51:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: just about dawn
[1/23/2015 10:54:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Before we search, may we rest?”
[1/23/2015 10:55:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes, the next attack will be at nightfall like always, so not too long”
[1/23/2015 11:02:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: We rest for a while
[1/23/2015 11:02:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: so you do
[1/23/2015 11:03:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: THEN WE GO FIND THE WITCH
[1/23/2015 11:04:27 PM] chasen.hutchison: the two of you set off by midday, trekking through the wilderness. Blindly looking around, stumbling through the forest looking for any sign of the witches hideout. make a perception check
[1/23/2015 11:07:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: nat 20
[1/23/2015 11:07:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: you hear giggling
[1/23/2015 11:08:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Who’s there?”
[1/23/2015 11:08:38 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Look around, what do you see?” hehehehehe
[1/23/2015 11:08:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look around
[1/23/2015 11:09:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: trees, rocks, the sky, a badger burrowing a hole
[1/23/2015 11:09:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I see the forest.”
[1/23/2015 11:10:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: but not Kaiden
[1/23/2015 11:10:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: uh
[1/23/2015 11:10:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: oh
[1/23/2015 11:10:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What have you done with Kaiden?”
[1/23/2015 11:11:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear stumbling around behind a tree
[1/23/2015 11:11:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go behind the tree
[1/23/2015 11:12:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: you see Kaiden leaning against it shaking his head, he looks a little dazed. “I thought i heard something”
[1/23/2015 11:13:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: “what happened?”
[1/23/2015 11:13:46 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I dunno, i guess i didn’t see anything”
[1/23/2015 11:15:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: “hm. Okay.” To whatever is giggling, "Show yourself!
[1/23/2015 11:15:40 PM] chasen.hutchison: “But i have. Why are you here?” the voice seems to come from all around you
[1/23/2015 11:16:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I’m trying to find a witch. I need to speak with her. I have no ill intentions.”
[1/23/2015 11:16:48 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a reflex save
[1/23/2015 11:17:06 PM] Hunter Campbell: 11
[1/23/2015 11:17:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: You feel the pouch on your belt be ripped off, and your sword belt unfastened so it falls to the ground. The pouch containing Dartfoot, the herb Kaiden gave you is gone
[1/23/2015 11:19:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I need to speak to the witch that lives in this forest! It is very important!”
[1/23/2015 11:20:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: “There is no witch, you liar!” you feel a change in the air, as if the nature around seems to grow angry
[1/23/2015 11:21:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: “no witch? I heard from the townspeople there was one.”
[1/23/2015 11:21:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Liars!”
“I suggest you calm down Uriel”
[1/23/2015 11:23:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: I take a deep breath. In a calmer voice, “I need to find a person that can read this language.” I show the notes
[1/23/2015 11:25:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: Before you can even lift your hand too high with the notes, the wind takes them out of your hands and into the forest.
“NO! This cannot be! You liar!” the bodiless voice says
“Uriel, why don’t you just leave?”
[1/23/2015 11:25:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: “… Fine….” I leave
[1/23/2015 11:25:59 PM] chasen.hutchison: so you do
[1/23/2015 11:26:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: now what
[1/23/2015 11:26:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: well you gotta find the witch, without Kaiden, cause he isn’t with you anymore
[1/23/2015 11:27:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: What was that even about?
[1/23/2015 11:27:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: sshhhh
[1/23/2015 11:27:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: uhh
[1/23/2015 11:28:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: I guess I search around some more
[1/23/2015 11:29:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: You make it to a small grove, with a single oak tree next to a small lake created from a waterfall, the breeze lightly rolling creating ripples, and flowers sprouting from this little grove of sunlight
[1/23/2015 11:29:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go into the grove
[1/23/2015 11:29:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: And?
[1/23/2015 11:30:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: look around. “Is anyone here?”
[1/23/2015 11:31:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you say it, you hear a shriek and a guttural yell, followed by something hard hitting you from behind
[1/23/2015 11:31:09 PM] chasen.hutchison: knocking you down
[1/23/2015 11:31:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: any damage?
[1/23/2015 11:31:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: no
[1/23/2015 11:32:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: I quickly get back up
[1/23/2015 11:33:01 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see Kaiden, a frenzy in his eyes and his blade drawn “stay away!” he yells, pointing the tip of his blade at you
[1/23/2015 11:33:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Woah woah woah Kaiden, what has gotten into you?”
[1/23/2015 11:34:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Draw your blade, or withdraw your pride” he growls
[1/23/2015 11:34:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I refuse to fight you, my friend.”
[1/23/2015 11:35:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Then you give me no choice!” he rushes you, his blade striking, init
[1/23/2015 11:35:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: 18
[1/23/2015 11:36:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: go
[1/23/2015 11:36:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: does unarmed attacking provoke?
[1/23/2015 11:37:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: no, but you can also do non lethal with a blade
[1/23/2015 11:39:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: okay I draw my blade and attack him for nonlethal.

[1/24/2015 12:03:48 AM] Hunter Campbell: I look behind me
[1/24/2015 12:05:40 AM] chasen.hutchison: You see a brown and green woman, made of bark and leaves stepping out of the single oak tree, a look of sadness on her face. “Evil men kill, they don’t stop their friends..”
[1/24/2015 12:07:31 AM] Hunter Campbell: “I am not evil.”
[1/24/2015 12:08:02 AM] chasen.hutchison: “The animals were afraid, you storming around with swords like the bad men, looking for my friend.”
[1/24/2015 12:09:03 AM] Hunter Campbell: “I meant no harm, friend. I need to find her for the sake of the town. All I need is for her to translate some notes.”
[1/24/2015 12:10:54 AM] chasen.hutchison: "She is behind the waterfall. " she points “once your friend wakes up, take him with him, i have no more use for him”
[1/24/2015 12:11:21 AM] Hunter Campbell: “I’m sorry I disturbed you and your friends.”
[1/24/2015 12:11:38 AM] chasen.hutchison: “It is fine, just don’t do it again”
[1/24/2015 12:12:43 AM] Hunter Campbell: “I will try my best, I assure you.” I wait around for kaiden to wake up
[1/24/2015 12:12:56 AM] chasen.hutchison: “whaaa…”

[1/24/2015 7:48:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hello Kaiden, I’m sorry I had to knock you out and tie you up. You tried to kill me.”
[1/24/2015 7:49:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: "Why was i trying to kill you?
[1/24/2015 7:50:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Some sort of dryad or spirit took control of you, I think. You stabbed me pretty good. I met your controller, and she has no qualms with me anymore.”
[1/24/2015 7:50:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Can i be untied now?” he squirms a little underneath the bindings
[1/24/2015 7:51:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I suppose, haha.” I untie him. “sorry about that.”
[1/24/2015 7:52:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: he rubs his wrists “You’re fine, at least you didn’t kill me”
[1/24/2015 7:52:31 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I would never kill you of my own will, Kaiden.”
[1/24/2015 7:53:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods “and i wouldn’t either.” he chuckles a little “good thing i wasn’t of my own will there”
[1/24/2015 7:54:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: I laugh a little. “I’m glad you’re back. The spirit or whatever told me where the witch lives. Behind that waterfall.”
[1/24/2015 7:54:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: (it was a dryad)
[1/24/2015 7:54:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Then lets swim over there then”
[1/24/2015 7:56:05 PM] Hunter Campbell: I use lay on hands before I do anything else, for 11
[1/24/2015 7:56:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I agree. Let’s go.”
[1/24/2015 7:56:55 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make a athletics check
[1/24/2015 7:58:14 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/24/2015 8:02:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: due to the lack of water circulation, there isnt much of a current so your armor doesn’t hinder you that much. You make it to the waterfall, clutching the rocks next to it as it roars in your ear. water splashes against you cheek as Kaiden slides next to you
[1/24/2015 8:03:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go behind the waterfall
[1/24/2015 8:08:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: another check
[1/24/2015 8:11:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: 23
[1/24/2015 8:12:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: You breathe in and dive under water to not get hit in the face by the waterfall. Coming up on the other side, you see a small cave dotted here and there with stalagtites, and an old rickety door placed in a narrow opening a few feet into the cave
[1/24/2015 8:12:46 PM] Hunter Campbell: I get on land and go to the door
[1/24/2015 8:13:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: Kaiden follows you, spluttering a little. “I hate swimming”
[1/24/2015 8:13:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I honestly don’t know why anyone would. Rusts armor.”
[1/24/2015 8:14:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Have you heard some people do it for fun?”
[1/24/2015 8:15:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I never would’ve thought that.” Anyway, I knock on the door.
[1/24/2015 8:16:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: the door opens slowly at your knock, a warm breeze rolling into your face as you stand there, hand still outstretched
[1/24/2015 8:17:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “…Hello?”
[1/24/2015 8:17:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Ehhh?” you hear a high pitched voice call from around the bend of the cave
[1/24/2015 8:18:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Hello! Are you what the townspeople call the witch in this forest?”
[1/24/2015 8:18:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: Silence and then “I suppose. I prefer, estranged mage”
[1/24/2015 8:19:54 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Do you have a name I may call you?”
[1/24/2015 8:21:22 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Just call me Alice, come in, it’s almost time for lunch!”
[1/24/2015 8:22:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: I walk in
[1/24/2015 8:22:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Nice to meet you, Alice!”
[1/24/2015 8:24:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: You see a small table, decorated only by the four chairs (covered in dust) and a few tin plates and cutlery, a basket sits on the table, with a cloth over it. in the table facing the opening you came from, you see a woman wearing an all black dress, with black hair and completely milk white eyes. Though she follows your movements, you can see clearly that she is blind
[1/24/2015 8:25:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I am Uriel, and this is my good friend Kaiden.”
[1/24/2015 8:26:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I am Alice, formerly of Hovel, and formerly of the the tower of Highever. Take a seat strangers”
[1/24/2015 8:26:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: I sit and motion Kaiden to sit
[1/24/2015 8:27:22 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Its unusual for me to cook so much food, but since guests are coming, I thought I would”
[1/24/2015 8:27:50 PM] Hunter Campbell: “did you know we were coming?”
[1/24/2015 8:28:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes.”
[1/24/2015 8:28:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Did your friend the dryad tell you?”
[1/24/2015 8:29:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I felt the threads of the Weave be plucked several days ago”
[1/24/2015 8:29:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: “The Weave?”
[1/24/2015 8:30:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: she giggles a little, “magic my dear. I forget that most people aren’t used to it being called such”
[1/24/2015 8:32:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: “ah, okay. I heard that you might know how to read some notes in this book I carried here with me.”
[1/24/2015 8:32:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Lets not talk business yet, eat.” she motions to the bowl
[1/24/2015 8:33:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: “May I ask what it is?”
[1/24/2015 8:33:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Just a salad”
[1/24/2015 8:33:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look at it.
[1/24/2015 8:33:44 PM] Hunter Campbell: what’s in it?
[1/24/2015 8:34:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: Salad stuff. leaves, mushrooms, vegies
[1/24/2015 8:34:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/24/2015 8:34:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: “thank you, Alice. I appreciate it.” I eat it
[1/24/2015 8:34:41 PM] Hunter Campbell: hoping there’s no poison in it
[1/24/2015 8:36:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you eat it, you begin to feel drowsy, your vision blurry and doubling. Alice’s distorted voice says “don’t worry, time to test your true character” make a con sace
[1/24/2015 8:36:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: save
[1/24/2015 8:36:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: I fucking new it
[1/24/2015 8:36:22 PM] Hunter Campbell: lol
[1/24/2015 8:37:16 PM] Hunter Campbell: 15
[1/24/2015 8:38:00 PM] chasen.hutchison: You feel yourself drifting into unconsciousness, and you don’t even feel your head crack against the wooden table
[1/24/2015 8:38:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooo
[1/24/2015 8:44:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: You feel yourself, floating, weightless in a void. Opening your eyes, you see a great silvery sea, the same above and below you as you float in the open air. Swirling wisps of white and gray streaking among motes of light like distant stars. Most of the area around you is completely vast and empty, but you see floating chunks of rocks drifting lazily in the air around you. You realize something horrid, you’re in the Astral Plane.
[1/24/2015 8:45:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: just btw, your description is beautiful
[1/24/2015 8:48:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look around in awe
[1/24/2015 8:50:29 PM] chasen.hutchison: That is what you see
[1/24/2015 8:50:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: can I float around?
[1/24/2015 8:51:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: As the thought crosses your mind, you find yourself moving. When you think forward, your body drifts forward. When you think up, you go up, etc
[1/24/2015 8:51:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: nice
[1/24/2015 8:51:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: I float forward
[1/24/2015 8:53:03 PM] chasen.hutchison: So you do, aimlessly. Do you float anywhere in particular?
[1/24/2015 8:53:37 PM] Hunter Campbell: go to one of the rocks
[1/24/2015 8:54:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: You float slowly over, bumping harmlessly onto the rock, and standing upright on it as it revolves upside down (what was upside down a second ago.) Make a perception check
[1/24/2015 8:55:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: 13
[1/24/2015 8:55:50 PM] chasen.hutchison: You hear screams
[1/24/2015 8:56:24 PM] Hunter Campbell: I look around, and at the rock i’m on
[1/24/2015 8:59:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: you see off in the distance a silvery wooden vessel, with sails looking like they’re made of pure silver silk, careening towards you. On the rock, you see two figures, a man and woman, both green skinned, tall and very thin. The male is holding the females hand and is running, leading her around the rock. Behind them, you see two men of the same species running after them, blades drawn and shouting in a bizarre tongue.
[1/24/2015 9:00:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: I sprint after the men
[1/24/2015 9:01:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: The one with swords?
[1/24/2015 9:01:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: yeah
[1/24/2015 9:02:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: You run over there, or at least it feels like you’re running, even though your feet don’t ever actually touch anything. The creatures look over at you, not sure what they are seeing
[1/24/2015 9:03:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: can I superman fly at them?
[1/24/2015 9:03:44 PM] chasen.hutchison: Make an athletics check and you could try to tackle one
[1/24/2015 9:04:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: 24
[1/24/2015 9:04:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: I tackle one
[1/24/2015 9:04:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: so you do, and you also do 1d8+str damage, because he failed so hard
[1/24/2015 9:05:19 PM] Hunter Campbell: 7
[1/24/2015 9:06:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: Describe it
[1/24/2015 9:06:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: am I superman flying?
[1/24/2015 9:06:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: ish yeah haha
[1/24/2015 9:07:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: haha so I fly into him, hands out to pull him to the ground. As we hit the ground his head(?) hits the ground pretty hard
[1/24/2015 9:09:26 PM] * chasen.hutchison sent Githyanki.jpg Githyanki.jpg *
[1/24/2015 9:09:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: yeah he’s humanoid.

[1/24/2015 9:10:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: 6
[1/24/2015 9:13:42 PM] chasen.hutchison: the creatures friend’s blade collides into your pauldron, but richochets off harmlessly. the one you hit tries to strike with his blade, but you parry off harmlessly
[1/24/2015 9:14:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Why are you chasing them?”
[1/24/2015 9:14:43 PM] chasen.hutchison: they growl
[1/24/2015 9:15:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attack the one I tackled for nonlethal damage

[1/24/2015 9:16:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14
[1/24/2015 9:19:16 PM] chasen.hutchison: the friend tries to attack but doesn’t manage to accomplish much beside create an opening for the one you attacked to leap in the air and drive its blade into the back of your shoulder ripping out causing 7 damage
[1/24/2015 9:19:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: ow
[1/24/2015 9:20:11 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attack the one I attacked for nonlethal again

[1/24/2015 9:20:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: 12
[1/24/2015 9:22:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: both of them scream and attack, one trying to doing a jump attack and the other going low. You parry the low blade with ease, and lift your shield into the jumping ones chest, carrying with the jump to knock him off balance and negate the attack
[1/24/2015 9:22:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: i’m awesome
[1/24/2015 9:23:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: haha
[1/24/2015 9:23:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: thanks for these badass descriptions

[1/24/2015 9:25:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: woooohooo
[1/24/2015 9:26:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I don’t want to hurt you!”
[1/24/2015 9:26:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: all you see is bloodcurdling rage, and describe it
[1/24/2015 9:26:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: the attack?
[1/24/2015 9:27:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: that incapacitated?
[1/24/2015 9:27:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/24/2015 9:28:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: as the jumping one hits the ground, I swiftly knee him in the chest and pommel him in the back as he doubles over.
[1/24/2015 9:29:56 PM] chasen.hutchison: his friend yells lifting his great sword as you turn back to him, and swinging wildly, his blade sliding through the side of your armor and cutting you a little for 4 damage
[1/24/2015 9:30:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: “aghh”
[1/24/2015 9:30:38 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attack him for nonlethal
[1/24/2015 9:30:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: 22
[1/24/2015 9:31:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/24/2015 9:32:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: after the blade slides down my back I turn around and kick him in the chest, then smack him with the flat of my blade, dealing 13
[1/24/2015 9:33:53 PM] chasen.hutchison: he lunges high with his greatsword, but you move your head just in time, giving you a gash on your cheek for 5 damage
[1/24/2015 9:34:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: ive taken 16
[1/24/2015 9:34:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attack again
[1/24/2015 9:34:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: nonlethal
[1/24/2015 9:35:01 PM] Hunter Campbell: 19
[1/24/2015 9:35:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/24/2015 9:37:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: With his arms outstretched, I go for a punch in the face, then a blade strike to the chest, doing 13
[1/24/2015 9:38:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: he tries for a side swipe from left to right, but you manage to slide the blade away in a shower of sparks, hitting both of you causing you to wince and back away a little
[1/24/2015 9:39:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: “By Helm, you’re tough!”
[1/24/2015 9:39:35 PM] chasen.hutchison: he just yells a blood curdling scream and starts running at you
[1/24/2015 9:39:53 PM] Hunter Campbell: I go for a nonlethal strike once again
[1/24/2015 9:40:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: 16
[1/24/2015 9:40:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/24/2015 9:40:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: I’ve rolled 3 7’s in a row for damage
[1/24/2015 9:40:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: haha
[1/24/2015 9:41:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: As he runs at me I dodge out of the way, kneeing him in the chest as he stumbles by. I then pommel strike him in the back for 13 damage
[1/24/2015 9:43:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: stumbling, he falls and rolls sideways twice before sliding to his feet. he tries to feignt to the right and then sweeps for your feet, but you see through it and hover up just high enough to dodge out of the way
[1/24/2015 9:43:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooo hovering
[1/24/2015 9:43:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: so bdass
[1/24/2015 9:43:49 PM] Hunter Campbell: haha
[1/24/2015 9:44:02 PM] Hunter Campbell: I attempt to nonlethal attack again
[1/24/2015 9:44:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: with a 17
[1/24/2015 9:44:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: hit
[1/24/2015 9:45:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: I hover up a bit and kick him in the face, doing 14
[1/24/2015 9:51:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: incapacitated
[1/24/2015 9:51:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: Do I have rope?
[1/24/2015 9:51:37 PM] chasen.hutchison: yes
[1/24/2015 9:51:45 PM] Hunter Campbell: I tie them both up
[1/24/2015 9:52:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: you see the one that was running away walk up slowly, a questioning look on his face and a blade in his hand, but not raised
[1/24/2015 9:53:10 PM] Hunter Campbell: In the calmest voice I can muster, I say, “I mean you no harm. I was trying to save you.”
[1/24/2015 9:54:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: He doesn’t seem to comprehend the words but understands the tone. he looks at the unconscious ones and an angry look crosses his face. he points at them, then him, and then draws a finger slowly across his neck
[1/24/2015 9:56:34 PM] Hunter Campbell: I nod my head. I point at myself, then I point at them, and make a punch motion, shake my head, point at him, and draw my finger across my neck, telling him that I was stopping them from killing him.
[1/24/2015 9:57:47 PM] chasen.hutchison: He nods, clasping his hands and does a short bow. he then points at them, raises two fingers, then points at the vessel approaching and flashes ten fingers multiple times.
[1/24/2015 9:59:07 PM] Hunter Campbell: I make a very concerned face, knowing what he means.
[1/24/2015 9:59:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: he motions for you to follow, and starts running
[1/24/2015 10:00:36 PM] Hunter Campbell: I follow him
[1/24/2015 10:01:07 PM] chasen.hutchison: he runs, grabs the female and runs
[1/24/2015 10:01:28 PM] Hunter Campbell: I keep following
[1/24/2015 10:02:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: you hear the shouts as the vessel approaches, as well as the sound of siege engines. as you run, you see a ballista bolt hit the ground next to you, make a dex save
[1/24/2015 10:02:32 PM] Hunter Campbell: `14
[1/24/2015 10:04:24 PM] chasen.hutchison: you dive to the side as you sense another one reaching you, rolling sideways away from the other two. The ballista bolts keep flying, and as the male enters a small cave, you see a bolt collide into the chest of the female, pinning her upright at the entrance of the cave
[1/24/2015 10:05:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: :O
[1/24/2015 10:05:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: that face shows exactly what I felt
[1/24/2015 10:05:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: is she dead?
[1/24/2015 10:06:15 PM] chasen.hutchison: you can’t tell from here, but she isn’t moving
[1/24/2015 10:06:39 PM] Hunter Campbell: I fly towards her to see if she’s alive
[1/24/2015 10:06:52 PM] chasen.hutchison: she isn’t.
[1/24/2015 10:07:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: well that is very sad
[1/24/2015 10:07:55 PM] Hunter Campbell: I fly into the cave
[1/24/2015 10:09:06 PM] chasen.hutchison: you see the male standing there, next to a floating sphere of silverly light. tears run down his face and it looks like hes about to run out into the storm of ballista bolts
[1/24/2015 10:09:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: I grab him, and don’t let him go out. I give him a big hug
[1/24/2015 10:09:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: holy shit
[1/24/2015 10:10:30 PM] chasen.hutchison: after a few seconds of resisting, he relaxes. you can feel the heavy breathing and then he pats you on the back for a second
[1/24/2015 10:11:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: I pat him on the back as well an let go of him. I make sure he doesn’t try to run out
[1/24/2015 10:11:51 PM] chasen.hutchison: he nods sullenly, and walks into the sphere of silver light
[1/24/2015 10:12:13 PM] Hunter Campbell: he just walks in? I guess…. I follow.
[1/24/2015 10:13:21 PM] chasen.hutchison: and just like that, you find yourself waking up. the wooden table resting below your head is itchy, and you hear sniffling from your right. a piece of bread sits next to your head
[1/24/2015 10:14:00 PM] Hunter Campbell: I sit up and look to my right.
[1/24/2015 10:14:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: that got real intense
[1/24/2015 10:14:49 PM] chasen.hutchison: you see the tear coming from Alice, with Kaiden sitting next to you like he has no idea what just happened
[1/24/2015 10:15:09 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What… Was that?”
[1/24/2015 10:17:10 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I projected your consciousness onto the Astral plane to get a sense of who you were. The Githyanki often are raiding anything. I expected there to be something for you to prove your mettle. Don’t worry you were safe”
[1/24/2015 10:18:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: “were those people real?”
[1/24/2015 10:19:41 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Yes. I don’t know their story, but those Githyanki were real people. You helped get the man here onto the Material Plane,” she says, with Kaiden eating a piece of bread with absolutely no clue
[1/24/2015 10:20:30 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I wish I could’ve saved that woman….”
[1/24/2015 10:21:23 PM] chasen.hutchison: “You can’t save everyone. Just be grateful you can save the ones you can”
[1/24/2015 10:22:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: “You have a point, Alice. Still, I wish I could’ve done something. Anyway, did I prove anything?”
[1/24/2015 10:23:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: “You proved that you are pure of heart and soul. I’ve already taken the liberty of reading the notes and told your friend here where the tower is”
[1/24/2015 10:24:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you, Alice.” To Kaiden, “Where is it?”
[1/24/2015 10:25:04 PM] chasen.hutchison: “In the marshes a days journey to the south”
[1/24/2015 10:26:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: “A day’s?? How will we protect the town?”
[1/24/2015 10:27:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: "That is up for your Helm to guarantee. Our service to the town is better spent to stop the attacks, than just to hold them off
[1/24/2015 10:28:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: “You have a point…. I worry about them, though. you barely saved me yesterday.”
[1/24/2015 10:29:11 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The Ogre seems to be one of the tough ones, i doubt they have many like it”
[1/24/2015 10:30:17 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I hope they don’t. We should go back to the town and warn them.”
[1/24/2015 10:30:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: “We don’t have time. They expect the attack every night from what it seems, so they’ll be as ready as they can be”
[1/24/2015 10:31:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What about Venetia?”
[1/24/2015 10:32:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: “She’ll be fine”
[1/24/2015 10:32:51 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Okay, well we should leave right now.”
[1/24/2015 10:33:02 PM] chasen.hutchison: “We should”
[1/24/2015 10:33:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Thank you for your hospitality, Alice.”
[1/24/2015 10:34:32 PM] chasen.hutchison: “I wish I could help more. But i’m afraid the Weave will not cross our threads for much time. I do have one thing”
[1/24/2015 10:34:52 PM] Hunter Campbell: “What is it?”
[1/24/2015 10:35:13 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Avoid the Black Knight”
[1/24/2015 10:35:33 PM] Hunter Campbell: “The Black Knight? Who is that?”
[1/24/2015 10:35:57 PM] chasen.hutchison: “It is not my place to say, but just promise me”
[1/24/2015 10:36:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I swear to Helm that I will avoid the Black Knight.”
[1/24/2015 10:37:12 PM] chasen.hutchison: She nods slowly, and Kaiden gets up
[1/24/2015 10:37:47 PM] Hunter Campbell: I get up as well. “Again, thank you.” I leave with kaiden
[1/24/2015 10:39:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: As you walk out the door Kaiden chuckles, “seems you get all the girls my friend”
[1/24/2015 10:40:15 PM] Hunter Campbell: I chuckle with him, “Hah, she was a strange one. That was the strangest thing I’ve ever been through in my life.”
[1/24/2015 10:41:20 PM] chasen.hutchison: “What about the Princess? don’t you have a girl where you’re from?” he stops at the water to continue the conversation before swimming
[1/24/2015 10:42:27 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I never had time for love at the monastery. Do you have anyone?”
[1/24/2015 10:42:58 PM] chasen.hutchison: “The wilderness is not a place for settling down. Besides, i’m still young”
[1/24/2015 10:44:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: "I am, as well. What is your age, by the way?
[1/24/2015 10:44:21 PM] Hunter Campbell: "
[1/24/2015 10:44:33 PM] chasen.hutchison: “20, you?”
[1/24/2015 10:44:40 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Same!”
[1/24/2015 10:45:14 PM] chasen.hutchison: he points at the water “you first?”
[1/24/2015 10:45:43 PM] Hunter Campbell: “I guess.” I jump in
[1/24/2015 10:46:17 PM] chasen.hutchison: athletics check
[1/24/2015 10:46:29 PM] Hunter Campbell: 14
[1/24/2015 10:47:08 PM] chasen.hutchison: you make it to the grove fine
[1/24/2015 10:47:20 PM] Hunter Campbell: wooo
[1/24/2015 10:47:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: I wait for Kaiden
[1/24/2015 10:48:19 PM] chasen.hutchison: he emerges a second later spluttering “and we’re going to a swamp?”
[1/24/2015 10:48:57 PM] Hunter Campbell: “Yes, and it will likely be full of undead.”
[1/24/2015 10:49:26 PM] chasen.hutchison: “Of course, its a swamp”
[1/24/2015 10:50:03 PM] Hunter Campbell: “That’s the rule. There’s ALWAYS undead in swamps.”
[1/24/2015 10:50:18 PM] chasen.hutchison: “heh”
[1/24/2015 10:50:28 PM] chasen.hutchison: sounds like a good place to end for the night?
[1/24/2015 10:50:35 PM] Hunter Campbell: sure.
[1/24/2015 10:50:45 PM] chasen.hutchison: how was it
[1/24/2015 10:50:56 PM] Hunter Campbell: really intense.
[1/24/2015 10:51:04 PM] Hunter Campbell: The astral plane was cool
[1/24/2015 10:51:18 PM] Hunter Campbell: and those Githyanki(?) were cool
[1/24/2015 10:51:23 PM] Hunter Campbell: and I’m sad
[1/24/2015 10:51:26 PM] Hunter Campbell: because of the girl
[1/24/2015 10:51:54 PM] chasen.hutchison: understandable
[1/24/2015 10:52:12 PM] Hunter Campbell: was she meant to die or did you roll for her?
[1/24/2015 10:52:36 PM] chasen.hutchison: meant to
[1/24/2015 10:52:42 PM] Hunter Campbell: ah
[1/24/2015 10:52:48 PM] Hunter Campbell: it was sad
[1/24/2015 10:52:59 PM] Hunter Campbell: anyway, goodnight!
[1/24/2015 10:53:05 PM] chasen.hutchison: night
