Where are they now?

Norik received a letter from the Temple of Lathander, congratulating him on his efforts to acknowledge the creative works of other races. They further recommended that he learn a thing or two about Garl Glittergold and Moradin.

So he sucked up his pride and asked Pennywhistle about her knitting.

On the journey home, he stopped in the capital of Normandia and watched craftsmen doing their arts. He entered the service of a temple of Chauntea for a time, learning the art of wine tasting. It was difficult for his dwarven palate, which much preferred strong bitter beer, but he considered that if he was going to worship Lathander then he should also get to know Lathander's lover.

After all these experiences forcing him to get out of his dwarven mindset, he began to better-understand what it meant to be dwarven, yet totally unlike the evil men who ruled his old mountainhome. Thusly, he added Moradin to his set of gods, that he may one day be sent to expel the close-minded fools from his mountainhome and help them open up, and possibly even form positive relations with elves.

Norik resumed his adventuring career with many quests for artifacts of Moradin and Lathander, and donated much of his gains to patronizing temple craftsmen and artists.

Hundreds of years later, he joined Kaelyn the Dove's Fourth Crusade against the Wall of the Faithless, and in the process added Ilmater as his third god, but that is a tale for another day.

Barduris reaffirmed his oaths to Lord Argenteus and swore to defend his realm and interests against dark forces. He pursued and hacked-down all those who sought to corrupt the world. Through the axing of evil, he found some amount of peace for his soul, and praised the gods that he could apply his talents in this way.

Sometimes his brother Bardum came by to visit, and together they would deliver justice upon wrongdoers. This also helped Barduris to reconcile with his past of serving evil lords as a mercenary, and put him firmly on the path towards Lawful Good.

With the help of the Abbey, he learned how to read. He started with some of the scriptures of Lathander that he had received as payment by Norik's temple. From there, he moved on to tales of strong men slaying snake sorcerors, military generals who dared to cast the dice and cross perilous rivers, leaders who were so respected that no man dared to shoot at them, and desert princes who conquered the universe.

The story of Barduris is to be continued in the other chronicles of the Silver Dragon...

Penny-Whistle was delighted that Norik asked her about knitting. Though normally not much of an evangelist she thought she might have a tract or two shoved into her pack. (You never know what the facilities will be like when traveling after all ... ) Luckily, she was able to find one of the more amusing ones. It was kind of crumpled but most of the words and the best of the notorious pictures were still legible. Inwardly she smiled. "I didn't think Norik swung that way. Isn't that sweet." As she watched his ears turn a bit pink as he read the pamphlet she realized there had been a terrible misunderstanding! He was really looking for information about Garl Glittergold! She quickly snatched the paper from his hand and pretended it must have been some little gnome's idea of a prank and boy was he gunna get it when she got home. What an awkward situation! Though nothing a nice cup of tea couldn't fix. She got out her tea set, scrounged around for a couple of biscuits and shared some of the more amusing Garl tales. Crisis averted.

Her experience with the party inspired her in later years to create a small charity for homeless orcs and/or dwarves.

Hey gang, hope all is well. I'm afraid I'm going to have to beg off for another week. I sincerely apologize. A family member is deathly ill and may not survive. I need to be with my family this weekend.

I appreciate your making me welcome in your group, and greatly enjoy gaming with you all. I apoligize for my spitty attendance of late. But I'm sure you can understand.

I am eager to rejoin you all.

Human warriors are arrogant, egotistical and lazy and this allows us to exploit weaknesses in their battle tactics.

You leaders . . . pay attention and employ this method in forests and brush encounters:

As you meet their forces and begin to fight ~ wait for a few skirmishes and then:

have your leaders begin to feign weakness or fear, draw back slightly and watch them puff up their vanities as they advance on you. Be sure to make it a fighting retreat, so they don’t charge.

At this time, your hidden side squads can quietly pass them on either flank to get behind them.

Once behind, they can then charge the humans loudly and aggressively ~ and at this point the main troupes who drew back will turn and bellow and howl with the archers firing at will as your lead fighters race back into battle.

Watch while the humans cry out in terror and break ranks. They are cowards and most will turn and run. And those of you at their backs will smile and gleefully cut them down as they flee right into you!

Nice! There's always more to the picture ...

(Field Marshall Grimhook is a great name btw)

Have you happened to read Grunts by Mary Gentle? It is supposed to be a fun summer read that puts orcs in a world where they might actually be smarter than root vegetables. I haven't actually read it but it is on my list.

Session XI ~ Assault on the Black Forest Citadel!.

The Players:

ssfsx17 as:

Norik, the faithful dwarf cleric
and
Barduris, the enigmatic but absolutely fearless half-orc fighter

Penny as:

Penny-Whistle Scrubroot, the practical and wise gnome cleric who now has the bloodlust up for evil monsters threatening her beautiful planet Jorde!

Aergraith as:

Elderberry Scrubroot, the wildly bold and audacious gnome rogue

Treebore as:

Aristobulous Falthor, the powerful elf mage

Verthak, the mysterious half-orc ranger

. . . other PCs in the game:

Gringnr, the mighty dwarf cleric

The action:

The adventurers decide to enter the complex very early in the morning via the front entrance. As they approach it’s very quiet except for a few birds chattering nearby and two orc guards slumbering in the complex entry alcove.

Verthak and Elderberry quietly and carefully move up and set upon the sleeping monsters. They quickly and expertly dispatch them and look into the entry hall. More orcs asleep. Elberberry takes one and Verthak the other, again killing them instantly.

Elderberry quietly scouts ahead but stays close to the wall and observes. An orc patrol approaches from the west and another comes from the east. He is spotted and pandemonium begins with the orcs howling from both side.

The rogue moves back and the fighters move up to face the orcs and the battle commences.

Swords clash, maces smash, sling stones fly, spells are cast and arrows reign down. Soon twelve orc warriors are laid out and killed. Their bodies are looted and the party takes a moment to drink from their wine and water flasks.

They continue straight north listening carefully and moving as quietly as they can.
As they go, the party hears an occasional door slam and sometimes low growling but at unknown locations far from where they are in the complex.

After moving through the hall of statues, noting that only the stone debris remaining in the small alcoves – Elderberry carefully walks forward into a small north corridor, when suddenly the wall begins to advance towards him and at the same time, sprays fire from a small hole.

The gnome rogue quickly jumps out of the way to avoid the fire damage and backs down the hall the way he came. As he steps out of the hall, the moving wall stops and rolls back into its original position. As the party watched the action, they realized that the whole block between that corridor and the next one to the west had moved.

Another corridor is checked and another advancing block is found and avoided. The adventurers see that they can run through a passageway and stop before the next one to avoid the wall block crush.

They scout west down some long hallways and suspect that they are close to the gnoll lairs. A brief discussion ensues and the party decides to head back east to where they think the watchtower is.

Thanks to Elderberry’s careful examination of the halls, the group avoids a pit trap as they continue.

As the adventurers get closer to the tower, they encounter a tribe of hobgoblins. Both parties attack and a bloody skirmish takes place in the middle of the passageway. The party members working efficiently as a fighting machine quickly defeat the monsters. One at the rear runs away.

The group takes a rest and drink from their water bags while chewing on biscuits and cheese.

End session.

The Battle of Argancia (Argyle) as written by Gaston the Bard.

The Norse longship captains with their swift boats and seafaring skills are able to avoid the catapult attacks from land by Villa-Lobos’ forces. And the ships used by Villa-Lobos are no match against the Vikings. Eric the brave, outmaneuvers their navy, sinks several of his boats and lands Magnus' forces quite easily.

King Magnus’ cavalry strongly defeats Orsino’s land army with most of them retreating into the castle. Blogue and his men put up a brief fight but the royal guard of the king killed many of them and so the overwatch captain also retreated into the castle with the Duke’s men.

Further south:

Empress Brigitte turns back the nomads long before they can reach the Duchy of Malbrook. Her Confessor Grand Cleric, Roland d’Laci Gautier leading the warrior priests of Normandia overwhelm the nomad horsemen. Most are killed and the rest scatter.

She then rides north east to face the Teutons tribes that are attempting to ride into the west. Her armies are aided by the Lithuanian Knights, led by Sir Godric the Lionheart.

The tribes are caught in a pincer and surrender before any casualties occur. Sir Godric holds their leader, Heinrich Von Dummkopf ~ prisoner of war, but his men are sent back to their lands. Herr Dummkopf will be used to secure a strong peace settlement. Large amounts of gold are expected to be gained by the Empress.

Count Rhuvein and his small troop of battle mages, engage Grimhook in the Dark Forest not far from Morlock’s Tower.

The Count, knowing most of Grimhook’s battle tactics had devised a counter plan to offset the field marshall’s successful side flank maneuvers.

Rhuvein, who studied under the guerilla master Ernesto Rafael moved his 2nd squad back to a hidden 3rd squad. He recruited 2nd squad volunteers from all the local hamlets and thorps. The men could use arms but were not experience fighters, but they would be decoys.

When Grimhook’s men performed their flank maneuvers, they would be caught and surprised when they thought to attack from behind, and found that they, in fact were flanked from behind by The Count’s premier fighters, now acting as the 3d squad.

This brilliant warfare method so completely devastated the orc army that Grimhook called for a major retreat. This proved disastrous as elven wood archers were positioned to pick off any and all fleeing orcs.

When the captured Grimhook was brought before Count Rhuvein, he said, “You think you have defeated me?” The orc brought his hook arm quickly and from it fired a dart that hit Rhuvein in the chest.

The Count staggered back a bit and reach for the dart . . and pulled it out. He stood upright and looked Grimhook in the eye, as he tore open his doublet which then showed the mithril chain shirt he was wearing.

“With that gesture, you have sealed your fate! You will not die. No, not a brave warrior’s death or beheading by guillotine.

You will stockaded in the town square and left to be humiliated until no one cares. And then you will travel to the next town for the same fate. After you have visited every village and town on the mainland, you will be escorted back to your homelands and released.”

“Take him away!”

The Count turns to confer with his squad leaders and says, “That was awful. I expected more from Grimhook. I would have been happy to release him as a fellow warrior. Arggh!

Alassandro, his first captain pulls out a flask of fire amber and hands it to the Count. Rhuvein quaffs more than a wee draught!

“Thank you, my friend. I hate war! I hate evil!

I can only take comfort knowing that our Lord Argenteus has returned!

Oh, to be sitting in the Atheneum discussing philosophy with Nils, Brigitte and Magnus!”

“I’ll be back!” ~ says the Count as he mounts his vogel griff and flys away towards Argyle.

Session XII - Delving the Black Forest Citadel or ~ "I just met a girl named, Maria"!.

The Players:

Aergraith as:

Elderberry Scrubroot, the wildly bold and audacious gnome rogue

ssfsx17 as:

Norik, the faithful dwarf cleric
and
Barduris, the enigmatic but absolutely fearless half-orc fighter

Penny as:

Penny-Whistle Scrubroot, the practical and wise gnome cleric who now has the bloodlust up for evil monsters threatening her beautiful planet Jorde!

Gringnr as:

Gringnr, the mighty dwarf cleric

. . . other PCs in the game:

Aristobulous Falthor, the powerful elf mage

Verthak, the mysterious half-orc ranger

The action:

After the battle with the hobgoblins the party decides to spend the night in the northeast quadrant of the citadel. They choose an area that's defensible and setup a watch rotation. The night passes quietly and the adventurers head back to the area where they believe gnoll tribes are residing.

Instead of marching into the gnoll section of the dungeon, they wisely decide to go south to make sure there are no monsters that can come up and flank them when they face the gnolls.

Elderberry checks the corridors carefully for traps. He sees an unusual door in the west wall halfway down the hallway going south. It's a double steel door with a handle and keyhole. Nothing can be seen through hole, but the party detects a low hum which emanates from the room.

The gnome rogue unlocks the door after trying several different sized lock picks. The door is opened and the party enters the room. The room lights up in several places on the floor and ceiling. The lighting has a strange white-ish glow, but is soft. It takes several minutes for the group to get used to it.

The adventurers notice a small room with a door to the west that has a soft lighting in it. The walls and door are made of glass. They see a female statue or golem standing behind the door unmoving and eye closed. Over the door is a symbol of a silver dragon.

Several members of the party pull out their dragon charms and some notice that Barduris' necklace charm has a key shape at the end of the dragon sculpture. They try the key and it unlocks the door. When the door opens, the metal statue comes alive and she opens her eyes.

She looks at every person in the room, and does see some holding their silver dragon symbols.

After conversing with the robot, she adjusts her programming and it appears she is to serve the adventurers whilst in the dungeon.

They continue south where they encounter and defeat a large constrictor snake. And down at the end of the corridor, Elderberry spots the spiders while checking for ceiling and wall traps. The spiders are killed.

The group backtracks and heads east in the main hall to where they found some short stairs down to a room. Another snake is killed but nothing else found in the room.

It is decided that the party should rest up for the night and they do - in the robot's chambers.

End session - [Updated on 8/6]

XP = 313 per player.

Hylde.

She worked secretly against the Duke, mostly trying to protect and isolate the women and children prisoners from Blogue and his cutthroats. She told him that if he abused them, their husband, uncle and father conscripts would revolt in Orsino’s service. The overwatch commander hated her, but knew that she was correct. Better not weaken the Duke’s army and invite his wrath, he thought.

Hylde explained that after Orsino wins the battle, they could have their way with the women. At that, Blogue smiled wickedly.

The good witch had convinced Orsino to allow her to have a stockade built away from the castle, so more room would be available for additional prisoners below the castle should they need it.

Secretly, away from the prying eyes of Blogue and Orsino, she could care for the women and children better in the stockade and thus prepare them for an escape during the forthcoming battle.

Later and after the Duke surrenders ~

When Blogue attempts to escape via a side entrance to the castle, he is met by Hylde standing at a distance in front of the door.

“You witch! Time to die! Get her, he yells to his overwatch squad leader!” The man hesitates and is afraid to advance on the druidess.

Blogue pulls out his crossbow and starts to bring it up, but Hylde points a finger and fire blasts the evil overwatch captain. He screams in agony while the flames scorch and burn.

Hylde walks forward and quickly douses the flames.

Blogue’s men step way back from the witch as she puts her spiked boot heal into one of his sizzling wounds. She glares first at the men and then looks down at the evil captain!

“You will live to die under the drop blade in front of all the people that you terrorized and harmed!”

The druidess turns and barks at the overwatch men, holding up her arm and her forefinger, “drop your weapons or die, NOW!”

All drop their weapons.

Magnus’ royal guards enter the room and take Blogue’s men away to the prison cells below.

Hylde cracks Blogue’s skull with her staff and knocks him unconscious. She then nods to the royal guard captain, who signals to his men to take the overwatch captain away.

Thanks you Ms Penny. Heh, I'm sure I've posted way too much that wouldn't make it into the module, but that's OK and of course, it's fluff for the adventure for those of the party that like some more background and details.

Rhuvein is plunking away on his old Royal typewriter when two faerie figures apprarate and land on each shoulder ~ a devil and an angel that look like Rhu.

Rhu angel: “What a lovely comment Penny posted!”

Rhu devil: “Ignore it and don’t even think of cutting her in! This is going to be a huge publishing success. Mark my words!”

Rhu angel: “Don’t listen to him, Penny is your protagonist and is brilliant in what you’ve written so far. She gets a slice, it’s only fair!”

Rhu devil: “What slice? Penny is an old lady gnome who can’t knit her way out of a paper bag! She’d rather hug the monsters than rid the world of them! Not that ~ that’s a bad thing for us! But . . we can handle ourselves without her getting rich by loving the world. Heh, gnomes are ridiculous as lead characters in a novel, Rhuvein ~ what are you thinking, tard?”

Rhu angel: “Rhu, the devil is jealous ‘cause the evil forces will be portrayed as stupid, weak and ugly ~ oh sorry Rhu devil, I mean they will be presented factually!”

Rhu devil: “Oh, OK. Factual is better than not telling the truth!”

Rhuvein busts out in laughter . . . “you guys crack me up! OK, enough now I must get back to work! I’m thinking that Penny in the novel will get a gnomish thrower, but not in the module. What d’yall think about that?”
