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)

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...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 10 March 2018

23 Gozran, 44 NC The Kisharan airship closes the distance rapidly and fires several cannons.  Poppy’s ship lurches suddenly.  While the crew scrambles to return fire, Poppy leaves her cabin and goes below. Snot musters a crew around the mortar at the rear of the ship and takes two shots, consuming the ship’s remaining powder stores.  The first shot crashes into the prow of the other ship and the second its air bag.  Both ships begin descending erratically as both crews attempt to keep them in the air. Snot goes to check on Poppy, and finds her in the “engine room”, which had taken a direct hit from the Kisharan vessel, killing over half of the imprisoned mad priests.  Poppy was desperately attempting to keep the rest awake and actively...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 20 January 2018

22-23 Gozran, 44 NC Poppy recovers and heads out of the compound to call in her ship. Meanwhile, the party clears the rest of the cave system, finding Leitus’ library. Over the course of the subsequent hours, the party transfers a majority of the contents of the library to the ship while Kagdir and Snot embed powder charges around the makeshift Waygate. They question the guard captain Gerard briefly, but only discover that he was a fanatic that knows very little about Leitus and Gideon’s motivations. They imprison him on the ship. Poppy secures herself in her quarters in a funk. After the charges are set, Kagdir lights the fuse and the ship makes haste for altitude. A short while later, there’s the expected explosion immediately followed by a...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 9 December 2017

22 Gozran, 44 NC The party rapidly dispatches another wave of guardsmen, including subduing a man who appeared to be their officer, and then takes a few moments to rest and rearm. When they advance into the next chamber, Jacob gasps in dismay.  Dominating the center of the large room is huge ring of interlocking black stones covered in a mix of Elvish and an unknown script.  “He’s built one…he’s built a gate…”. The doors to the chamber slam shut, save one, and through that one enters Gideon Nell, carrying a bleeding, beaten, and unconscious Poppy by the nape of the neck.  He tosses her idly to the corner of the room.  He gloats somewhat gleefully that he has both Jacob Dain, who caused him so much grief in Riverton, and...

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 18 November 2017

21-22 Gozran, 44 NC Poppy describes Leitus ar’Shamrael’Vin as a brilliant Elven scholar, over five thousand years old – making him one of the oldest living creatures on the continent.  He was in the expedition that discovered the Waygate and became obsessed with the race that built it and the threat of the Kisharans.  He began hoarding warpstone and developing inventions using its power.  Proximity to that much warpstone for that long is likely a major contributor to his madness.  That Gideon Nell was his servant was news, and no one is sure why Gideon was operating in Riverton on Leitus’ behalf fourteen years ago when Jacob Dain’s crew led by Peruppi Dentkettle arrived in town looking for a lost Society officer named William Melvar....

Khevoran 3 Session Notes – 4 November 2017

20-21 Gozran, 44 NC The flight East is uneventful for the first day.  The next morning, Poppy joins Matten at the rail. ”So,” she asks, “this demon Gideon.  He killed Diego?” ”It seems that way, “ Matten agrees. ”And Vlad died trying to stop him.” ”Yes.” ”And he was sent by Leitus ar’Shamrael’Vin.” ”So we’re told.” Poppy looks contemplative for a few moments. “Okay then,” she says.  Then strides up to the quarterdeck, whispers something into a small compass she pulls from her doublet, then wrenches the wheel so hard to starboard that the ship pitches nearly 45 degrees into a turn and begins sailing due South. The party, notably Nimue and Matten, attempt to find out why the change of course.  Poppy declares that she intends to kill Leitus (she mutters something...
