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 – 28 July 2018

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 28 July 2018

28 Gozran – 1 Desnus, 44 NC Ralben goes on to describe how Levin had begun to become mentally unstable, and he had started rambling in such a way as to reveal what he had referred to as one a secret that could not ever fall into the hands of the Kisharans.  He states repeatedly that the secret would not only doom the people of Khevoran but of “countless other worlds”. Ralben relays how he hired a pair of local toughs to raid Levin’s home in search of a treasure that didn’t truly exist.  During the robbery, Ralben made off with his purloined book, and the thieves murdered Nimue’s father.  The local magistrate ended up catching the robbers and putting them to the noose. Ralben seems to believe that all roads are now leading to the Waygate, and a confrontation...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 30 June 2018

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 30 June 2018

28 Gozran, 44 NC The party begins to explore the city of black stone.  The goblins of the party have a very different experience of the city – apparently the city is brightly colored with murals and art, but it’s only visible in spectra that they can see. After a lucky break discovering how to open doors in the buildings, they find that they all appear not only completely abandoned, but completely empty as well.  A city of empty rooms.  A few dozen yards into the city, they find what appear to be the blasted remains of several orcs.  While examining the remains, they begin to hear heavy footsteps, which resolves itself to a 10-meter high golem apparently made of the same material as the city itself.  It broadcasts a demand in a language no one...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 19 May 2018

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 19 May 2018

25-28 Gozran, 44 NC The session begins with Gidget asking a question: “‘Scuse me, I generally don’t like to get too involved in all yer carryin’ on, but I jes wanna clarify something….  So you’ve got this bit of stuff, she gets attached to the assault on Westergarde, gets the romantic attentions of the guy who’s not only the next emperor, but also the only chap we know of who can touch the rings without ‘is soul gettin et.  She manages to lift the manual for the Waygates off of ol’ Ralben, and lift the key to the Vault of Teribain off of the Wizard of the Wilds, which, by the by, know one knew ‘e ‘ad.  Then she and Mengst go flitting off in the wind and zip themselves over to Teribain. Jes...

Prelude: Nimue

Prelude:  Nimue

Nimue-   It all really started with the bandits when you were twelve.  You and Jeremy had made all the way through the Southlands to Erebor completely unhindered, hoping to find work on some of the expansive plantations or fisheries there, when you were accosted at random on the road.  Jeremy was stabbed and left for dead, and you were taken to their small camp.   The big bear of a man with the strange longsword walked right up to their fire.  He introduced himself as Count Isaac Vane, ruler of the lands on which they were camped, and he told them they were under arrest for thievery and murder.   All told, there were ten of them.  They didn’t stand a chance.   When they attacked him, it was like the sword leapt into his hand, and he danced among them.  There was...

Prelude: Dan

Prelude: Dan

Dan-   You wake.  Hell yeah.   Wait…where are you?   Wherever it is, it must be because you belong there.  It must be pre-ordained.   It’s a workshop, and you’re laying flat on your back, above the blankets, on a small cot in the back, next to a tiny wood-burning stove.  The workshop itself is pretty awesome. There are a number of big heavy tables. One is dedicated to chemistry things. One is dedicated to mechanical things.  One looks like it could be used for biological things. The tables are relatively low, so you bet they’re for a Halfling or Gnome. There are a couple of fogged-up windows, but through them you catch glimpses of trees and snow flurries.  Your things are piled neatly on a shelf next to the cot. Your sword smells freshly-oiled.   You’re not...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 28 April 2018

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 28 April 2018

25 Gozran, 44 NC The party debates for a time about their options.  After much discussion, several facts and theorems emerge: It is clear that the Ringwielders have some ability to sense the tome’s general location. Ralben previously stated that Mengst and Muerdetta would likely be headed for the Waygate.  He didn’t clarify his reasoning for this assumption. Sanorin appears, by all accounts, to nullify the power of the Ringwielders.  A message has been dispatched to Thane Ironfist to aid in testing some of these assumptions. The Waygate excavation site is protected by a company of soldiers and a fort.  The Waygate is likely only weeks away from being unearthed. General Vane will likely have the support of a meaningful percentage of the armies of the...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 24 March 2018 (The Story So Far)

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 24 March 2018 (The Story So Far)

24-25 Gozran, 44 NC THE STORY SO FAR   Sergei Volkov and Smoot, both former Black Rose Society officers, have been waging a civil war against Duke Stephen Tyr for years, and gather a group of individuals together to help end the war by invading the city of Westergarde.  They seek to rescue Jacob Mengst, the son of Kironius Mengst and Anastasia Altair (the heir of former Emperor Joseph Altair).  Smoot assigns one of his specialists named Dan Strait to the team.   At the same time, Lord General Isaac Vane, commander of the Kisharan armies at High Guard Fortress, and Thane Ironfist (nee Gronk, nee Ari Stonehand, RIngwielder of Earth), conspire to take advantage of the Kisharan Waygate being buried to slay Aril Flambeau, Ringwielder of Fire and leave Khevoran in the...
