The Supreme’s – Session 3

Game log for Friday Game Session 3 – 1/7/2011


Halafor was summoned by the Golden Pope. Entrusted with a retrieval mission, he’s told to gather his team and find the “Telescope of Copernicus” which is somewhere upon the Isle of Sicily, located in the ruins. The journey will only be a few days by boat, but the journey to the docks will have to be by raft down the river, or by horse through bandit held areas.

The team is also summoned to an audience with Cardinal Napolitano, whom informs ‘Father Halafor’ that he’s getting two new members on the team. “Lazy Eye” Pete – a Klepto pickpocket whom has something for the ladies of the evening; and Coren whom has something of a taste for the recent dead… Halafor also meets Cardinal Campaigio, whom Halafor suspects to be working for the Red or Blue factions of the church. Resigned to his fate, he has everyone meet him at the Ferry at 10 marks.

Halafor has also commissioned a spyglass, two sniper scopes, and for later retrieval, improved bullets. He mounts the sniper scopes to the Musket Rifles and returns them to Garion and Brother Franco.

During the raft trip, things go smoothly till midnight watch realized a large Aerial creature is alarmingly pursuing or about to attack the raft. With the aid of the Sniper Scopes, the two riflemen [Garion and Franco] strike the creature. Halafor attempts to aid in seeing the beast but realizes his magic is repelled. Being sneaky, he instead casts a safe fall spell which forces the creature to land uninjured upon the vessel – it sneers and utters that ‘Father’ shall be the first to die for his creativity, some blows are traded before finally the beast is felled.

The next morn the group meets with the dockmaster and secure passage with Talen Carde, captain of the Windsblade. Halafor immediately makes some suggestions to the Captain to improve the loading mechanism on board the vessel. This proves to be a major boon, along with the spyglass, for a Frigate flying the Flour De Le of Florence Venice proves to be manned by scallywags and fierce pirates. With ample early warning the smaller sloop is able to outmaneuver the less maneuverable Frigate, and with their single cannon unleash volley after volley upon the vessel. The pirates are disadvantaged since our snipers keep killing the Helmsman. The ruffians try to force a parley/surrender but Halafor is in no mood to deal with the underhanded ruffians, he offers them terms which they refuse and unleashes a MIGHTY blast which kills several of the pirates, they eventually surrender and Halafor sends a recovery crew to salvage the 16 gun frigate, and collect the bounty for the capture of a ruthless pirate band.

Halafor makes Talen Carde an offer he can’t refuse and agrees to be the Captain of the captured Frigate. Along with several improvements to the badly damaged Frigate, Halafor is quite happy about these turn of events. Lazy Eye during the battle helped himself to the Captains prized treasures. [Why we have ruthless brigands in our own group astounds me, but oh well].

We learn the location of the ruins, and take the straight path. Lazy Eye earns his keep by scouting the area. We find the Library, and the only thing of import [Besides ancient Roman/Greek stories – Iliad and Odyssey] is the magical bust of Gaia the Earth Mother. Uttering the Latin phrase actually summons the essence of the Goddess. Halafor obtains information on where the Telescope is located, and then Brother Franco promises to revive her church, [but was deceitful in his mind]. The goddess became enraged and struck the man down – Struck Blind, Deaf, Dumb and stunned. The party apologized and left.

In the “Temple” Parthenon, we passed the Test of Might, and located the secret underground complex. The goddess’s voice came to us that we had passed the Test of Might, but must overcome two more tests .

We ended the game at 1am.
Name of the Frigate – Since Halafor is entering into a new venture, the Name of the Frigate should be ‘Enterprise”. 😉
