Log #002 – One night in Newport

A tavern respite

Boo visits a local store

Treats for everyone!

 

I wasn’t sure about these guys, at first, but they are connected in Newport! They know the governor personally, the town calls them the champions of the Elven Queen regata (or some such), and they have a private booth in the best tavern in town.

I gotta send a fruit basket to m’lady for this assignment.  It is waay better than the three months I spent with the wuiger-cult lizard-men. Though, I did learn how to strip out a crockolisk and convert it into a shelter and observation platform. But that is a different story.

Tonight was filled with drink, stories, making connections and team bonding. Boo disappeared for a couple of hours and came back with glowing pouches full of med supplies, from a nearby magic shoppe. I was right. We gotta start swapping stories.

Log #001 – Reassignment

A joker escapes

Through a wondrous portal

A herald walks in

 

So, today m’Priestess reassigned me to a new outfit. They seem a capable enough bunch. I saw them beating the crap out of a mechalich, when I first walked in.

My orders were received, reviewed and accepted by the Gnoll Lt. He even let me keep my rank! I can only hope that is a sign of his wisdom and not a sign of a lazy leader.

The current mission was completed, so we all headed back to Newport. I took the opportunity to learn what I could about everyone. This group is a menagerie of strangeness but I can tell they will jump into hell itself to save each other (see: Korynthian Spark).

I think we will get along just fine. Especially the big guy with the island dialect. He claims to be a champion of The Priestess, as well. I can’t wait to swap stories with him.

Dax Steelheart Introductions

On the walk back, Dax goes up to each of you and tells you his story. It is an epic tale that would span hours, if we had the time.

TL/DR:

Dax was created as a Dwarven-Forged soldier, to fight The Orc Lord armies. In his final battle, Dax and his company’s other War-Forged and Dwarven soldiers were slaughtered, defending the escape of hundreds of villagers.

The Priestess watched the battle upon her winged horse and decided to reward the company for their selfless bravery. She reassembled all of the best parts of the soldiers, Dwarven and Dwarf-Forged, into a single being and breathed life into it.

That is Dax. Now, we wanders the land telling great deeds and performing greater ones.

Dax then asks each of you two questions:

  1. Please give me a brief description of who you are and what your role is in this band?

  2. What do you think of each of the other characters in this group?

Tell him what you think your character would tell him.

Korynthian Spark

Spark grew up above a bakery, in Glitterhagen, where he street ratted with his friends. At 14, he joined the Cirque du Koru traveling circus and spent five years, on the back of a giant tortoise, learning to become a world-famous acrobat.

All of his traveling gave Spark a curiosity about the world, so he retired from showbiz, returned to Glitterhagen, and studied History, eventually getting his degree and a professorship. While teaching History, he was approached by a representative from the Dungeon Delvers Consortium, to research a couple of artifacts they looted. This meeting lead to another and another. Soon, Spark was diving into the living dungeons with them.

This lasted until the ambush that killed everyone in the Consortium, except Korynthian. He escaped, with some help from his magical boots, given to him by The Priestess.

That was when Spark met up with our adventurous group. He used his trapfinding and acrobatic skills to great effect, stealing an enemy’s weapon and using it against them. That was, until he met Rex.

Rex was a reincarnated wizard that took Spark on as an apprentice. Spark was a quick study and started slinging spells after only a week. Many people found the flavor of the spells…distasteful, but Spark knew they were the perfect tool for his new goal in life. He wanted to marry The Priestess.

The adventuring continued and his skills broadened. Then, he learned of a lair that included the grimoires needed to become a lich. Spark realized if he could understand how a lich is made…he might be able to find out how to unmake one. Well, one in particular…The Lich King.

Now, with tomes in hand, Spark begins his new quest. He is going to topple The Lich King and take his place, among the Icons.
