Welcome to the Khevoran Blog!

I’ve created this blog to provide a centralized location for all of the role-playing campaigns taking place in the world of Khevoran – I think using a blog instead of a myriad of forum threads over time is a much more consistent way of keeping everyone up to date and sharing the stories that come out of play.  I’ll be posting more information about the current campaign, and every session there will be a summary and opportunity for the players to post their tales in the comments.

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 24 June 2017

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 24 June 2017

17-18 Calistril, 44NC After sunset, the party debates a plan and, without a clear consensus, start raiding the tower somewhat independently. Snot scales the tower and drops a rope from the battlements for Matten to scale behind him.  Once at the top, they slay the two guards without raising any alarm.  Dan scales the rope as well and joins them on the tower roof. Once the watchers are out of action, the rest of the party hides outside the main tower door.  Nimue hides her armor and weapons and knocks at the door, posing to the solders as “entertainment” sent by Captain MacDougal.  Syl poses as her escort. The bored soldiers are incredibly enthusiastic about the “entertainment”.  While the three move down from the roof, Nimue seduces the...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 17 June 2017

17 Calistril, 44 NC The party is traveling through the dark for about two hours when they hear a thunderous sound echoing across the valley.  Kagdir identifies it as two shots from a large Dwarven mortar, likely fired at short range somewhere in the vicinity of Giles’ estate. About an hour later, Nimue notices that Snot has rejoined the party, and he relays the tale…somewhat…of how he rescued Giles and the company of Westergarde soldiers has been reduced and scattered. The team continues on for several more hours and are ambushed by Sir Gregory, Billy Bones, and their team.  With them are Gregory’s squire, a Dwarf who is obviously a shamed troll-slayer, and Syl also notices an archer hiding in the woods. Billy asks the party, “What...

Interlude: Snot’s Raid

Interlude:  Snot’s Raid

Snot burrowed.  Down the foothills, below the river, around the strange and impenetrable bedrock below the ancient Elven longhouse, and finally to the walls of Giles’ keep. The night was dark, and while the soldier’s camp was well-lit, the walls of the keep itself and the small village to the North were shrouded in darkness, so the little goblin scaled to the top of the East wall without much concern of being seen.  At the top he observed two pairs of soldiers patrolling the catwalk around the top of the wall, and two more standing post inside the gates.  There was a small yard in front of the manor house itself, and two small shacks against the West and East walls.   Snot scurried down to the manor and peeked into the second-story windows in turn.  The house...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 6 May 2017

16 Calistril, 44NC The troops camped near the Giles manor appear to be a well-run company of Westergarde infantry.  The officers appear to be billeting inside the manor and the entire manor and village is actively patrolled. The camp appears to be more than a week, but less than a month old.  They have likely been encamped since before the party left Harrowburg.  Several heads are on pikes on the wall. Jacob recalls the name William Bonet – a cadre mage in the Imperial army, extremely loyal to the empire.  He believes this Billy Bones is this man.  This raises the question why Billy would be on the side of Westergarde, especially since Tyr was responsible for slaying three of the Imperial heirs. Snot goes on a scout and overhears some soldiers discussing...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 29 April 2017

13 Calistril – 16 Calistril, 44NC Snot returns from a constitutional convinced that the party is being followed.  The group finds a suitable ambush point and hunkers down to wait.  Snot scouts their backtrail and finds evidence that a party of 6-8 people, with at least one horse, one elf-kin, and two halflings are pursuing them – but the trail vanishes mysteriously shortly north of the party’s previous camp.  The party waits out the remainder of the day but nothing happens, so they proceed North the next morning. The next night, the party literally stumbles into a very well-hidden trapper camp and it’s lone attendant, a wiry old man calling himself Billy Bones.  His story, that he was doing some late winter trapping out of Giles’...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes: 8 April 2017

3 Calistril – 13 Calistril, 44NC After a pitched fight in the dark, the party dispatches their assailants, capturing two, including the platoon Sergeant.  The prisoners validate Smoot’s intelligence:  there is a company of Westergarde regulars moving into Harrowburg and several patrols were dispatched to monitor the environs and attempt to capture anyone leaving the Mengst Farm.  The survivors are left alive, tied up in the woods. The group moves North through the hills on their long trek to the Giles estate.  Over the course of the next week or so they make fair time and progress and continue their careful conversations to get to know each other....

Khevoran 3 Session Notes: 1 April 2017

The party has an hour to rest before dinner, and spent the time in idle chit-chat. Dinner was served to the unit, with Vladimir and Diego attending.  When the porters conveniently neglected to serve dinner to Snot, Vlad got up and read the following from a parchment loud enough that everyone in the house could hear:   My name is Starry Night Over Trees, Stra’Chik of The People of Mud and Night.   Forty-five years ago, when the Waygate opened, my people were enslaved.  It was as if our hearts were gripped by an invisible hand and white-hot rage was poured into our veins.  We went mad.  With others of the deeps, the Orcs, the elves of the night, the deep dwarves, who all, for their own reasons I do not understand, were filled with hate as well, we invaded...
