As you enter a small town you see a bright flash of pure evil at the top of a near by mountain...Mt. Hood........

That was kinda the idea. I didn't want the players to know what they were against befor they got there. Sort of the siprise element."No bows, no swords! Leave all your weapons here!"

Grog looks up athe the skull-shaped cloud. The half-wit ogre didn't comprehend what was going on, but he had business to attend to in town. He continued to plod down the main road, looking for the tavern. He moved very slow, as it tk some time for his brain to process everything.

Kalia_Majere
02/12/2001 10:51 AM

Crystalamira screeched in surprise at the sight of the skull shaped cloud. She stretched her feathered wings to their full 100 feet and stared at the mountain. Her crystaline scales mirrored the image of the skull, making her shudder at the sudden wave of evil that washed over her.

She turned her attention to the town below her and nodding to herself, she leaped off of the ledge to dive twoard the forest below. Before she hit bottom she had already assumed her Human form of Kalia Majere.

She turned to stare at the fading cloud, Her golden eyes filled with a mixture of anger and fear. Her silvery hair shone in the moonlight. She stood out like a ghost standing near the edge of the forest. She wore all white, trimmed in a rich Lilac, emboidered with gold and silver runes. In her hand was the staff of Magius, whose Blue crystal orb glowed serenly.

She turned to look back at the town. She shrugged and walked forward. What ever was going on here she was on her own...Ayslynn had other business on the other side of Ansalon.

Ghostbuster looks at the skull shaped cloud from the back of the silver dragon who had been gracious enough to transport him here on a mission from Fizban."Oooh!Fiz always gives me the greatest missions!Drop me off in that town, I need to recruit help." he tells the silver.
"Are you sure you can do this alone,Cleric?"the dragon says with an almost british accent."Of course!"Ghostbuster replies."Thats my mission,Fiz said to do it without dragony help!"The kender dismounts a small distance from the town.As the dragon flies away,he uncrosses his fingers and heads for a tavern,the best place to find adventurers drunk enough to come with him.

Grog found the tavern, the Rabid Griffon, and went inside. He peered around for the gnome he was supposed to meet there. He was still looking for a new hand, and so far all of his attempts to get a new one had failed. He hoped this gnome had something that would work he was running out of coin.

The ogre glanced around but didn't see who he was looking for. Instead, he headed for a table to wait for his employee.

Joe_Ghostbuster
02/13/2001 9:39 AM

Ghostbuster walks to a tavern."The Rabid Griffon."he reads the sign."Sounds good!I once met a rabid griffon you know."he says to himself,the only person willing to listen to him for more then five minutes.He enters the tavern.
"Hey,listen up people!"he shouts.The barman eyes bulge as he notices the kender,but doesn't dare get close for fear of his possesions."I'm on a mission from Fi-uh,Paladine, to destroy the evil on Mt. Hood.Who is with me?"
No one lifts an eyebrow."I'm willing to pay good steel!Um...twenty a day,for each man!" that was a horribly exaggarated number.

A slightly tall man walks towards the kender. Dagger in hand, ready for the slightest possiblity of getting robbed of what little he has with him.

"I will go with you. I too have seen the cloud and would find great honor in going with you on this quest."

A slight spark flies from his staff.

"I really need that fixed! Does anyone here know hao to repair a damaged staff. It seems the last time I used my enflame poitin on it, it went on the fritz.""No bows, no swords! Leave all your weapons here!"

(OOC: Its your thread man.Sorry if I came on as to crtiticising before,I was just trying to help you get started.In your thread you do what you like.)
Ghostbuster smiles at the man."Actually,I can fix staffs!"he mumbles a few words,and then returns the staff to the man,not noticing the suprised look as the guide realizes his staff was gone for a second.
"Can you help me find other adventurers,to defeat evil stuff?"

Grog stares momentarily at the little man and the one with the funny stick. They were not who he was looking for though, so he started to eat the bowl of stew that was placed in front of him by a serving wench.

Kalia_Majere
02/13/2001 11:03 PM

The young woman smiled at the Kender.

"well well...who have we here...Ghostbuster right? How have you been?" she turned to him hoping that he would remember her. Her silver hair was muted by the firelight and her Golden eyes shone with pleasure of seeing someone that she knew.

She then turned to the mand beside him. "Hello there..I am Kalia Majere, And I may be able to help you with that staff also...seeing that I have had plenty of practice with my own." She mused staring from her staff, The Staff of Magius to the staff in his hands.

dylar
02/14/2001 7:09 AM

Now bragdishing his newly repaired staff, he turns to Joe.

"I know the only way to get to the summit of Mount Hood. You must cast a GLOBE OF INVALNERABILTIY before you teleport. Otherwise the evil force will tear you apart. "

OOOC: Gory huh? :-)"No bows, no swords! Leave all your weapons here!"

02/14/2001 10:49 AM

Grog continued to munch his stew. It was good, and it filled the ogre up. Something shiny caught the ogre's eye. As he peered up he saw a beautiful lady with silver hair.

dylar
02/14/2001 10:57 AM

Also dazed by the
beautiful lady with silver hair.

Ghostbuster looks at Kalia with excitment."Kalia!Hi!Wow,thanks for wanting to come with me,sure you can,sure!You do know how to cast Globe of Invunre-Invunrebal- Invunrable thingy?"
Then the kender cleric realized what Kalia was.He shakes his small fist at the sky."Oh poop!Fizzy,you always find a way,huh?Poop!"he exclaims again,louder.And it seems the people in the tavern can hear an old man cackle in the distance.

Grog continues to eat his gruel, not noticing that his slobber had thinned it out.

02/17/2001 2:47 AM

Ghostbuster looks across the room,still annoyed at the God.He notices the ogre."Grog!Hey,What are you doing here?Hey,stop looking at Kalia!"the kender smacks Grog upside the head."Wanna go ona mission to eradicate evil?"

02/17/2001 4:29 AM

*Several death cries are heard. All the windows on the west side of the tavern are suddenly spattered with blood. Bootsteps are heard circling around the tavern to the main door. Of course, the door is dramatically kicked open and Hooded walks inside, looks around then walks to the bar...*

"Barwench, a mug of dwarf spirits and make it snappy."

*The barmaid leaves the mug of ale on the bar. Seeing his drink settled safely in front of him, Hooded mutters a spell blocking off the barmaid's windpipe and watches her choke as he sips at the dwarf spirits. Turning around, Hooded notices the familiar looking ogre.*

"Grog? What are you doing here? I thought I told you to stay in that cave for the rest of your life."

02/17/2001 1:21 PM

Grog barely notices the kender "bump" him on his head. "Grog still look for someone to fix hand," he says, lifting up his right arm. "See big cloud over mountain so come inside. Hope no rain."

The ogre does not even respond to Hooded. He recognizes the evil man from jail, still hating the way that Hooded treated his friends.

"What evil Grog need to bash for little friend?" Grog asks Ghostbuster.

Joe_Ghostbuster
02/18/2001 7:35 AM

"You know,just general evil.Wait,I got to do something."
Ghostbuster goes to the barmaid,mutters a few words,and heals her."There,thats better."
He returns to Grog's side."So you wanna?The pretty woman is coming..."

02/18/2001 9:35 PM

"Grog like pretty woman. Grog come. Maybe pretty lady fix Grog's hand?" asks the ogre.

Kalia_Majere
02/18/2001 10:05 PM

Kaila turned to face the Ogre. Her golden eyes full of a fierce compassion. She stood infront of Grog, her gaze steady and gentle. She smiled softly at Grog.

"May I ask what happened to your hand? I might be able to help, I can't make any promises though...." she said reaching out a slim pale hand, lightly touching the Ogre's hand.

The_Thorn
02/19/2001 2:43 PM

"Grog chop off hand to save little friend," says the ogre looking at Ghostbuster.

Joe_Ghostbuster
02/20/2001 11:51 AM

"Yes,he did.I owe my freedom to Grog.And to someone else..."the kenders chubby, wrinkled face becomes somber for a second."Tolk...".Then once again blissful ignorance sets upon him,as if a gift from above.Which it perhaps is,considirng his calling.
"And I can't heal it.Maybe Paladine could,after we save the world from the evil!Eeeeviiil...."he says in a spooky voice,to remind everyone what they were supposed to eradicate.

"Grog ready. He eat good stew. Now bash some evil for friends," says the ogre.

Kalia_Majere
02/20/2001 9:28 PM

Kalia smiles warmly at the Kender, but her eyes are dark with worry as she glances at the Ogre...

"I am sorry I don't know if there is anything that I can do...." she murmered, bowing her head.

The_Thorn
02/20/2001 9:46 PM

"It okay. Noone fix Grog yet. Lots try. Grog not care. Someday someone fix Grog," says the ogre.

"Now is the time to act."

"We must leave before night comes."

Grog follows the kender at an easy pace, shouldering his pack in the process.

Kalia_Majere
02/21/2001 11:33 AM

Kalia follows the Ogre and the Kender walking so softly that neither could hear her.
She held her staff close as she stared up at the mountain top.

Joe_Ghostbuster
02/21/2001 1:03 PM

Ghostbuster looks at Kalia."Now,we need to get up there."he points to the mount."How about,you know,wooshing us there?"
"Fun is the purpose of life."-me

The_Thorn
02/21/2001 9:16 PM

Grog looked puzzled, what was wooshing. The ogre thought hard for a miute then realized if his friend wanted to do it, then it must be okay.

dylar
02/22/2001 10:38 AM

"I know!", the guide says as he begins to chant a spell.

All of the adventurers are soon englufed in a thick white mist.

Before anyone can utter a single word they are all teleported to the top of Mt. Hood. All they can see on the mountain top is a door with a sign on it:


*Gone out for lunch. Back in 30 minutes.* "No bows, no swords! Leave all your weapons here!"

-Unknown-

The_Thorn
02/22/2001 11:05 AM

Grog already had lunch and he was becoming annoyed.

Kalia_Majere
02/22/2001 12:14 PM

Kalia stumbled and stared about. she was unacustomed to moving about with magics other than her own..

dylar
02/23/2001 10:50 AM

The guide appears next to Kalia and pats her on the shoulder.

"You shouldn't be so tense."

"Lighten up!""No bows, no swords! Leave all your weapons here!"

-Unknown-

Joe_Ghostbuster
02/23/2001 4:07 PM

Ghostbuster walks to the door and opens it.HE looks inside."Oooh...It looks reall evil!" he opens it wide enough for everyone to see the horror that could only interest a kender.
OOC:Since this Forum is PG,i'll not describe anything,but think all the SM gear you ever heard of, add a few high-tech/magic extra gadgets,and use them on just about every species present on Kyrnn,including even a Crystal Dragon.

Suddenly the kender is pulled into the door by a large monsterous hand as the door slams behind them. :D"Lord, what fools these mortals be!"

The_Thorn
03/05/2001 11:48 AM

Grog had seen bad things happen to his friends before and he wasn't going to let it happen again. The ogre lowered his shoulder and rammed the door open, spilling into the room in the process.

dylar
03/06/2001 10:40 AM

"Nice job Grog!"

"Now let me see here I was told there was a lever of some kind in here..Ah here it is!"

The guide pulls the lever and a wall at the far side of the room lifts up to reveal a hallway."Lord, what fools these mortals be!"

Kalia_Majere
03/06/2001 11:44 AM

Kalia peered into the hallway curiously, Holding onto her staff. She looked then to the others, Her golden eyes alight from the torch light.

"I guess we go that way huh?!" She said, a faint smile on her face. She stepped forward, passing Grog and the others. She stared around the room, the little light within making it hard to see. Calmly she raised her staff and whispered a single word.

"Shirak!" The crystal at the top of her staff burst into a brilliant light, lighting all of the room and the hallway beyond.

The_Thorn
03/06/2001 2:25 PM

Grog picks himself off the floor looking for Ghostbuster. "Where Grog's friend go?"

Joe_Ghostbuster
03/07/2001 4:07 AM

Ghostbuster looks up,and up,and up at the monster holding him."Wow,you're a Troll aren't--Mphgh" he says,as he starts to get strangled.Hey,thats not nice!I don't like this guy.he thinks.Now,what spell would work...I know!
A bright light appears suddenly before the Trol's eyes,blinding it,and making it lose its grip on the kenders throat.Ghostbuster jumps clear,and rolls to his feet quickly,as the Troll starts lumbering towards him,despite the light.He starts running,and finds a door.He succeds in putting only his head through it before his feet are caught,but that is enough time to shout for help.

He then runs out of the place screaming, "I am here! I am Here!!!!"Suddenly, there was a flash of light. And then there was..........Me

"What wrong with him?" asks Grog, pointing at the guide.

dylar
03/18/2001 3:10 PM

The guide's robes fly in all directions as tattered strips of cloth.

As the adventuring party notices the change in the guide he grabs Grog and throws him into the nearest wall.

OOC: The change is that the guide is now a 10 foot tall Gnoll!

OOC2: The guide wasn't Dylar just in case you were wondering!"The light at the end of the tunnel may only lead to darkness, but also at the end of that tunnel there will be...ME!"

03/18/2001 3:58 PM

Grog whacks the wall and slumps to the floor, the room becoming suddenly light. It took a few seconds for the room to focus again. "Ow," was the only thing the ogre could mutter.

dylar
03/18/2001 4:56 PM

The moster charges towards the fallen ogre and unleashes a bone shaking bellow."The light at the end of the tunnel may only lead to darkness, but also at the end of that tunnel there will be...ME!"

03/30/2001 1:32 AM

Grog rolls out of the way, avoiding the charging monster. He hops to his feet looking for a weapon."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

Kalia_Majere
03/30/2001 11:07 AM

Kalia stepped between Grog and the Gnoll, and invisible barrier surrounding her. Visisble only by the shimmering effect like heat rising up off of the desert sands. The Gnoll Slamms into the barrier..HARD!

The impact on her shield threw Kalia to the ground. she sat there for a moment, glaring up at the Hyena-like beast. She had no room in this cavern to change, but her magic abilities in Human form where the same as if her where in her dragon form....but she could use the delerium effect of her true form to help them.

She got to her feet, and held out her staff, she closed her eyes and visioned a wepon for Grog. There in front of him, a Club made of Iron wood, bristleing with steel spikes, Appeared. "Use It Grog!!!" kalia cried pointing to it

she conjured up a sphere of white light, then threw it at the Gnoll slamming it into the far wall.your village just called, their Idiot is missing

The_Thorn
03/30/2001 7:06 PM

Grog grabbed the club in his left hand and swung, more graceful then normal. He had become more proficient of late, practicing hard because of his handicap."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

04/03/2001 11:26 PM

"No, no, no. You're doing it all wrong," came a raspy voice from the corner of the alcove. "Blades work oh so much quicker when fighting a large enemy. The point is to severe nerves, tendons and artories. It's go down much faster then and leave you feeling alot less, well, beaten."

The half-orc drew his shortsword out as he pulled the rags off himself. Oddorned in a fine splint mail and wearing a large steel sheild on his right arm, the mongrel seemed rather out of place.

"My name's Sheriatis, I've been waiting here for a group to help me escape. I know, I seem more educated than most half-orcs. I was raised among humans as a slave, and we came here to purge this mountain of evil. Obvious as it seems, we failed. I lived, now, you're my hope, and I'm yours."

"Now, about those blades...." Sheriatis said as he approched the gnoll and tossed an enormous bastard sword to Grog.

The_Thorn
04/04/2001 1:39 AM

Grog let the sword clatter to the ground next to him. It was to large for him to use with only one hand. Instead, he continued to bash away at the gnoll."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

dylar
04/23/2001 3:38 PM

The gnoll, now quite annoyed grabs at Grog missing only slightly and at lordyuric holding him high above its head...........

OOC: I hate uninvited guests! :b"The light at the end of the tunnel may only lead to darkness, but also at the end of that tunnel there will be...ME!"

04/23/2001 11:24 PM

OOC: LordYuric is my little brother. It's cool.

Grog punched at the gnolls face, trying to save the newcomer."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

dylar
04/26/2001 4:07 PM

The Gnoll sheilds its face as Grog punches at it then it hits the ground with a loud thud.
"Nooooooo! You fooooools!"

then the Gnoll's eyes flash as he seems to realize something....

"Now get them!"

A huge pack of demons march out of the far wall striaght for the party!

04/26/2001 10:10 PM

"Someone do something!!! I cannot hold this level of light for long.!!"your village just called, their Idiot is missing

The_Thorn
04/26/2001 10:45 PM

Grog blinked, having blinded by the bright light. He began to swing wildly with his left hand, hoping to connect with the gnoll that was still in front of him."Are you trying to make me look stupid in front of the other guests?"
"You don't need any help from me, sir."
"That's right." - Clue

dylar
04/27/2001 3:21 PM

The Gnoll reels back in pain as the staff blinds him.

"FOOOOOOLLLLLLLSSSSSS!!!!! NNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!"

The Gnoll quickly beginsto shrink back into a human....."The light at the end of the tunnel may only lead to darkness, but also at the end of that tunnel there will be...ME!"
