Menaces unveiled! 2nd session of "The Shattered Spectrum: TNG"

  • August 17, 2014 · 11:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Frayston has been lost, but the fleeing refugees find themselves in the care of the enigmatic "Wisp". After a heated debate, our party has decided to follow Charisma to her home-land in the frozen north.

Along the journey they are waylaid, and one of their number has been taken.

Each player in this campaign stands to become a pivotal part of history, and their decisions may shape the face of the shattered lands forever.

For more information you can visit the Obsidian Portal page linked below. If you are interested in joining this campaign please send me a personal message so we can work out the details, as there are currently just a couple spaces left.

I will likely attempt to host the game at the Shared-SF space again, but location remains TBD until everything is locked down.

The date will likely be Sunday the 17th, but date may be subject to change.

    Tavok wants to meet with charisma and apologize for the untimely demise of charisma mistress ... on his knees ( mind you that is very humbling for a dwarf to go on his knees ) he will ask for forgiveness and pledge his allegiance to the cause of destroying the shadow lord and to become the protector of lady charisma .... He also wants to visit the gunslinger with whom he shares pipe smoking bond ... He wants to reassure Ashford that even though shadow lord might have his family in his grasp there are ways to free them without killing them ... There has to be a way we just need to find it . Then he goes and visits the elf summaris ... brings some of the sweet wine ... sits down and says elf I know we had our differences not sure why as I don't have anything against your people ... As for you I saw you use forces of nature in a way that I never will be able too even comprehend but down deep we share the same love for nature and what it can do ... *** he pats his wolf at this time ***

      Okenna attends, but more so to observe. After the ceremony he ask Charisma if he could have a moment of her time. He ask that she consider what drastic measures were taken for her. He also says "those around you believe that all of your life has value. In the previous body and in this one. He believes that your reincarnation was meant for your life to continue not discard. He continues by saying we are our soul, not our body. The body is merely a shell. But the soul is energy with limitless potential. As a monk of the 4 winds we don't just read this we live it. At a certain point we are capable of reincarnation. We continue strive for great potential and pour what we have gained into others. You have an chance that few get to experience. I could be one of those people and yet I still risked myself for you. We all did, and only the gods know the risk Summeris put himself on your reincarnation. Make no mistake, I am not saying what you should do. Just merely what you should consider.

      Charisma will spend what time she has left in the white with her family and friends. As she spends time with her nieces and nephews she realizes that she has spent so long preparing to fight the darkness that she hadn't lived and she feels sorrow that she will never get married and have children. Even though her family has told her that she is still young, in her heart she knows that her sole if aching to go to the place that was calling to her before it was tugged back into the earthly realm.

    Oh, and I forgot to mention, obviously your mission is very important to the leadership of the White. You can assume they would provide you with any requested mundane items. Do keep in mind weight restrictions and run anything super crazy by me first.

      Trade my crossbow for a repeating one! Also, spyglass!

  • Ben S.

    It also occurs to me to suggest you all can take this in game week to work on coordinating your characters teamwork and begin developing tactics for dealing with the known and unknown threats. Up to y'all, but a concerted effort towards teamwork might be beneficial for the group. ;-)

      Hm... then her dice just sucks lol

    Okenna wants to spend this time training, meditating and learning from the monks here. Okenna invites Ashford and Charisma to join him in deep meditation at any time.

    2 · August 19

    • Michal K.

      Ashford my friend come here and smoke some pipe ... says Tavok between his meditation sessions . Okenna is right my friend but to each their own ... you need to find yourself in this darkness , much have been taken away from you ... and that alone would drive a man toward the path of darkness and yet here you are amongst friends fighting against it ... There is fire within you lad ... maybe not a great fire of the forges of Moradin/torag but a fire nevertheless ... use it , keep it alive , care for it and it will grow into the rage ... channel that rage , guide it and you will become the force to be reckoned ... I can see that in your actions lad ... now let's smoke some pipe ... for the days are cold and this dwarf needs something to keep his bones warm :-) ...

      Ashford will take a smoke break with the Dwarf, but seems unphased by his words. His resolve is strong as ever. Tavok has pretty much said what Okenna already has, albeit in a less wise-monk way, and more in a dramatic Dwarf way. His words, as Okenna's are considered, but he can tell that it will take much in the long journey ahead of them to sway Ashford from the darkness.

    Summeris will spend his remaining time after the ceremony with the flora and fauna of the northern realm of the White. He will try to replenish his herbs, like mistletoe/holly. Specifically try to master various animal forms via wildshaping. He's tried the owl by observing Bowie closely and also the wolf who follows Tavok around. He's very invigorated by this and seeks other animal shapes to try. Ben, you can let me know which animals in the Bestiary this will fall under.

      ... Even if her spirit is still broken.

      1 · August 20

    • Michal K.

      Tavok tells her that his spirit was once broken too ... but he found solace in nature , because nature did not judge him , nature did teach him how to be strong , how to survive sure she was an unforgiving teacher and every mistake cost Tavok dearly but because of that he was able to survive , to learn and to adapt ... He become attuned to nature and she embraced him as one of her own ... His spirit sure could use a break from the daily struggles and for somebody as young as him he sure has a lot of weight to carry on his little shoulders ... ***he slumps a little but is fast to compose himself *** he pats the wolf ... see where once I saw darkness and nothingness , where once I saw despair and misery I now see hope ... hope for brighter tomorrow... believe in that strongly with all your heart and you also will enjoy life again ... and if ever in doubt remember the ultimate sacrifice in this dark world is ..... to save one another from the fate that so many of us already face .

    Braith wanders the city, she's contemplating on who would be an easy mark, she's not letting her "talents" dull. She's still confused about what's going on but she's slowly coming to understand it's not just her homestead she needs to protect. And she's finally letting go of the motion that the white haired people are witches. ;p. She will begrudgingly tell Lady Charisma, she's sorry for her loss of her matariach.

      David that hash tag is amazing! xD

  • Ben S.

    Hope everyone had a good time! Even if your character's may have had a rough month or so. ;-) As a reminder, everyone has 4000 gold worth of magic item creation costs from the northern magic crafting guilds to work with. This means 8000 gold worth of magic items by the time you set off. The next session will pick up one in game week from now, so if there is anything special or interesting your character wants to do in that time let me know.

      Hopefully the items Summeris had requested is approved by the White. They are already listed in his inventory on Obsidian Portal. Let me know if any items are not available.

      August 18

    • Ben S.

      So everything you've got sounds fine David. Jet I just see the potions, the headband, and the quiver. All of those are easily done.

    Remember folks, we need healing. I recommend everyone buy a WO-Cure light wounds.

    August 18

    • Bud

      Jet, do you agree?

      1 · August 18

    • jet

      Summeris will be happy to take your wand of cure light wounds and tap you with it "after" any battle. He will not waste his action on healing during battle. Rather he would recommend you taking cure light or moderate potions for that. He bought his own wand for this purpose and also will request potions as well from the clerics of the White with their generous "donations".
