I HATE BEING POSSESSED!!! A LOT!!!

Hmm... wasn't edgar like a evil twin too?
And wan't Nameless mistaken for him or something like that... and they aquessed him of killing some guy... ? Ah... I don't know... it hurts my head.

Okay... where so does the big dragon hunter guy think we should head to throw down with big nasty magic-y lizard creatures with stuff... and can I be an invisible flying tendriculous?
They are the best kind!
The stealth tendriculous!! :-D

PS
lets not get involved with anything where I'm not sure if it's real or a dream or if someone is actually there or not... it interfers with my straight forward, simplistic, zen-like enjoyment of battle. And well... of life!

PostSubject: Power to the shifter people! Rise up & be free Fly airships   Wed Oct 15, 2008 1:00 am

What shifter related stuff?
You mean... pluses on my a/c while shifting???
Oh... and I can smell stuff?
I think whatever you got going works for you...
If you had gotten to be a shifter... you would have had to take a hit on your cha... so ... while I know it's harsh... you vain pretty boys are just going to have to suffer along with your hairless little mole like bodies...
:-D and give up the true honor and all the great bonuses from being shifter!

You get lots of human stuff... like you can get a dragon tattoo.
If you chose to get one or not... that's your decision... but we aren't even allowed to have one. Which means we don't get to fly airships. Which is predudicial and opressize and anti-shifter!

Nameless has never been aquessed of anything. He was accused of killing one of the survivors of the expedition to the island, but it was the White Rakshasa (AKA the Rug that matches the drapes) trying to frame him. Edgar has never been evil (that you know of).

It turned out that Nameless' original name (before he got messed up in the Mournland before the campaign began) was Edgar Thorn and he had been a relatively normal person in Cyre. Someone who knew him back then saw you guys in Sharn and talked to him (and the others) about it, and I think that's what you remember.

Aye. Unless there is a pressing reason for personal delivery, Jaela can disseminate the info.

Sure Jaela sounds good, isn't Thrain under attack? Maybe we can help out a bit with that while we're there. Six can pick up a couple more scrolls there as well.

Yes, Thrane is under attack too (just about every nation on the mainland of Khorvaire are), and since you guys have a day to spend while Honar digs up info on dragons, helping is easy to do.

Would you guys mind if I glossed over you helping destroy another army and went straight to the dragon-hunting next session?

That's fine by me. We've smashed enough at this point we should have it almost down to a routine. It's mostly a question of killing the leaders and if we can snag some support from the temple then it should be pretty easy.

For narative purposes, if you could toss in some excuse about "anti-aberration" weapons (or at least items that would help significantly) in the Dragon's horde, then that would make Nameless a lot more willing to spend the time doing it.

Okay. And here's your info.

Honar eventually contacts you (after you return from Khorvaire) with information about three potential targets:

(1) Kallionaxis, a young adult bronze dragon. She is known to be an exceptionally powerful spellcaster, much more powerful than many much older dragons. Kalli has carved out a small realm in the Vast but dwells alone, having shown no signs of seeking either a mate or servitors. Her interest seems to be exclusively in unusual and powerful magic items, and she’s known to trade away any gold or gems she has gained to older dragons if she can gain magical items from them, and has slain a few of them too

(2) Aarazthoorus, an adult blue dragon. He is known to be an especially strong physical combatant but not very smart. Aaraz gained a realm by killing a young adult silver dragon and taking her territory. He is currently served by a tribe of goblinoids who’d had the misfortune to work for the silver dragon he killed

(3) The siblings. These are a trio of juvenile gold dragons who have created a territory together. They’re known to be an exceptionally vicious bunch that have a fascination for gems and jewels. Not that much is known about them, since they are fairly new to the area.

Honar suggests going after Kallionaxis, partly there’s less of a likelihood that they’ll have to deal with others beside the dragon, and partly because it’s the most likely one to have items and equipment that you could use. One of the dragons Kalli slew was known to be a specialist in studying the planes, especially the more esoteric ones, and it’s possible that there is related lore or magic in Kalli’s hoard from his. Aarazthoorus is likely to be an easier fight, but will likely provide less useful treasure, as is true of the siblings.

Questions or comments?

Give Kallionaxis a full set of divinations. What ever Gareth has. Nameless will do a Vision and a "Safe" Demi-Diety (50% chance correct answer) contact other plane.

So what's your plan Dave?

Okay. Are you guys going to use these spells and go dragon-hunting the same day, or wait another day till you have a full complement? I'm asking because if it's the latter, it'll mean another day in Io'lokar (or back in Khorvaire, if you prefer).

Your current timeline goes something like this:

ZARANTYR (eq. of January)

1 Sul – Head down into Khyber and fight aberration army. Retreat to Sharn. Go to Shadow Marches to help Gatekeepers against aberration attacks.

2 Mol – Destroy army in Marches, fight two fallen angels (who escape), recover warpstone & magical bowl

3 Zol – PCs visit Sharn and then Io’lokar. Speak to Honar and Elabenna and find Chamber has dealt with Khesavuthir

4 Wir - Return to Khorvaire to provide information gained from bowl. Defeat an aberration army in Thrane. Return to Io'lokar and learn about dragons from Honar in the evening.

You can either both do divinations on the 5th and go after the dragon the same day, or do divinations on the 5th and go after the dragon on the 6th. Let me know what it is.

By function the deathtrap allows the filmmaker to summarize the plot so far. For RPGs it allows a reset for the GM on a TPK. In superhero games it became a tool to advance the adventures. For the more combat orientated the fights before the final one can be full bore. Much like the video game where the lieutenant is tougher than the final boss. I formalized it where the players could start in a deathtrap, get the full plot and proceed from there.

-Not that the following has anything to do with the former-

Hmm a young dragon that is a very powerful spell caster with high powered magic items, can you say Xaggy round three, same problem different day (same result 'Crying or Very sad').
Query to PCs.
What is the spell, item or ability that allows you to know when someone is divining you.
If you are a young adult bronze dragon, cr 12 caster lvl 5, with a higher caster level enough to kill older dragons, say cr 20 caster lvl 13. What would you do to defend yourself. BTW that is what I'm guessing Xaggy was at.
Can our secondary attacks beat Kallionaxis, with Honar and friend(?), after a divine and dash.

As always this is a matter of combining our powers while disrupting the synergy of the enemies. We don't know the powers of Kallionaxis, that's bad, not knowing how our own powers work, including the temperament of the players, is worse.

Detect Scrying is what you have in mind, I think. It detects scrying attempts, not divination in general.

Nice! You got it bang on the nose, except that Xaggy had Practiced Spellcaster, which bumped his CL up.

On an OOC note, Kallionaxis is lower CR than Xaggy and significantly different in many areas. I'm not about to use exactly the same enemy with you guys.

I was also thinking of divinations. Cast one asking if there is going to be any trouble over the next week.

Sad Repetition is the only way I get through some of these high levels. Wait that's for video games but the same principle applies, resurrection = extra lives. Forget the deathtrap option we need a save game point.

You guys are in the middle of an invasion by Xoriat and right on the front lines against them. I think we know the answer to the divination.

Counter divinations casted by Kallionaxis. Isolated dark towers make quests infrequent so visitors should show up nicely.

Actually, no, I haven't. But I think it would suit me.

Bad news - bronze dragons can cast cleric spells too. Actually, as far as the MM dragons are concerned, only black, green and white dragons can't cast clerical spells.

Incidentally, since you guys have people who are knowledgeable about dragons with you, not to mention Nameless' crazy knowledge skills, feel free to crack open the MM and read up on bronze dragons. Or use the SRD here:

Now a true rogue (gnome) plan would be to convince Aarazthourus to attack Kallionaxis. Then we come in to clean up the mess, like was done to us - twice.

Actually, it would be easier to do it the other way around. Since Kall is willing to go after other dragons if they have something she wants. Of course we'd need bait. I think the most valuable thing we've got is probably Nameless's Runestaff of power. But that might not be the best item to hand over.

Then there's also the issue that we as a collective, have a bluff check inferior to that of a a small child with chocolate on it's face claiming it didn't eat a candy bar.

I'm not sensing any enthusiasm for going after a dragon with anything other than a full load out, so let's assume we go the day after the divinations.
