Session Log by Mike –

The generals brought their replacements to the meeting hall.

  • Kenshin, the oriental 5’2″ redhead with a cross shaped scar wearing a karate Gi.
  • Hawkeye, the silver haired 5’8″ man with a completely white left eye and a blue right eye. He wears a mesh shirt under an overcoat.
  • Ellasandra, the brown haired (red highlights) green eyed, Elven Looking, mocha skinned woman, 5’4″ Wearing nature colors around a dress.
  • Mother, (George’s character) is also there. She has an amulet with an aqua colored gem, a normal common dress. she’s 5’9″, Blonde, and blue eyed. Voluptuous.

We accept the charge to be faithful to the chosen ones and be loyal to each other.
We form a circle, join hands, benediction, we get an oren on our hand.

The first mission we get is one that’s very much suited for ones of our experience.
They noticed a pocket dimension has tabarath pocket influences… They determined the only way to send someone is if they’re inexperienced.
They’ll try and open up a portal back once every 28 days.
We make preparations, we get 100 days rations, torches, rope, that kind of thing in a dimensional extending bag.
The creatures apparently cannot manifest as normal, so we must exorcise the creature or kill the host. We know of one, but we should get rid of as many as possible.
There will be a mark on the forehead of those afflicted.
150 spellcasters will be sending us, ritually. And it takes forever… but we feel like we’re squeezed through a pinhole. It’s very uncomfortable.
We wake up in a forest. We don’t remember who we are or what we are doing here.
We check for damage, nobody was hit in the head. We
There’s a path but nothing going either direction.
Hawkeye blames Kenshin because Kenshin is foreign, then Kenshin points out Ella’s ears are pointed.
Kenshin grabs the katana/sakabatou because he can read the writing, but Hawkeye wanted it too.
The girls grab dresses… Kenshin grabs Kier’s clothes, Kier grabs Kenshin’s gi. Hawkeye finds his own clothes.
Kier finds a pack with rice patties, and notices Kenshin is swimming in the preppy clothes. they switch.
We look around. Then we walk. We come across a village.
The inhabitants (around 100) are darker skinned, tan.
Hawkeye asks where we are. Fulton?
The bretheren of the shrine can help us!!! (we gather this from the man we talk to since we’ve “Lost our way.”)
“Follow the teachings of Triegenes.” a simple robed man with a hood proclaims.
We ask where the larger city is, (alays primos) and it’s a few days north.
We go north.
Night one Kenshin hears wolves howling to either side of the camp. Nothing else of note happens.
Day two a traveller is coming the opposite direction.
We share food and drink with him. He explains of the worth of man and the divine spark within. He’s a follower of Trigenes too.
Trigenes was a mortal sailor who reached godhood through self sacrifice.
There are evil ones in the neighboring land of Denor. They are hooved, horned, and try to use machines to rid magic. They smell of brimstone.
Mother says these sound like tieflings.
Kier wants to know what kind of machines. So does Hawkeye.
Metal creatures that travel along lines and spew smoke into the air.
He also warns be careful of ber, dragons ruled the land. He can’t really place us. We don’t seem from the same place. We should go to Flint.
Kier finds parchment with the mission parameters on it.
We all look and find our parchment too.
Flint is 6 days away… we should be able to reach it after the capital.
The capital is walled. (think italy, with canals, like venice.)
We ask for the library, of which there are several… We ask for a sage which can help us find anyone with a symbol and go to him.
This guy seems rich, with fine wine, and quality furniture.
He comes out of the back after we ask about the symbol and he has a very old tome, and opens the foreign book gingerly.
he explains that 5000 years ago the cult caused a demon uprising where the chosen ones of the evils wore this mark and summoned creatures, but great heroes arose and banished these heroes sealing them from the world. The battle took place between risur and ber.
Hawkeye gives him a few gold to tell him about the symbol on their hands. The heroes who banished them wore that mark.
We pay him, Kenshin thanks him, and we leave to find an inn… our party is going to go to different buildings, one to the temple of trigenus and the other to the library of war history.
We remember our names! woohoo!

“mother” seems uneasy and doesn’t go with either of the two groups. She leaves town and goes out of it down the road.

Kier looks for more people with the symbol, and finds nobody. He approaches the clergy and is directed toward the priests. We ask the priest about enlightenment.
Kenshin and Kier show him the symbol, and they sit and get enlightened by the priest. He pulls out a necklace thing and holds his hand over the forehead, then mutters and says he needs someone stronger to help with the… ailment. He goes and whispers to someone and a minute later an older priest walks in. This new one invokes a benediction. Kier now remembers everything. Kenshin then volunteers. Kenshin donates 10gold, Kier donates 5gold. They then go to meet the others. Kenshin goes to find “mother” and tells her about the memory restoration at the temple, and they go to it to restore memories after the other two are finished.
Hawkeye and Ellasandra ask about the war history, but nothing is new about recent history, but 2000 years ago the mighty high elf empire was toppled by humans. 500 years ago the high elf goddess was killed and pretty much every elf woman died with her. There are some very rare trophies for human conquerers. Ella covers her ears with a headband or something. The cursed ones appeared (tieflings) when the high elf goddess died, and the magic didn’t come back to that location (Denor) either. There’s a dwarven prophecy of a doomsday, too.
The party all are at the temple afterwards and get “healed” to get their memories back. Mother screams in agony. “These are not my colors!” Ella offers to switch clothing. Mother is confused, frustrated and deeply afraid of being mortal. Ella says “At least you live.” and storms off.
Kenshin suggests to make the best with what she has.
Hawkeye keeps up the conversation that “Mother” is mortal just like we are. She walks off.
We all go to the inn. Hawkeye asks Ella if she’s ok. He asks what happened, she’s not ready to share.
We sleep, (Kier casts hold portal on the door)
We go to the city of Flint, and there are great huge metallic ships with smoke coming off of them in the capital. We find the dockmaster to book passengers. 5silver per person for passage. They depart Midday.
We arrive in flint on day 7. Steampunk type equipment… magic and technology coinciding.
A person, early 20s, he has a symbol on his cheek. We try to be stealthy, kenshin fails, Kier is stealthy, the others just walk toward.
Most of us lose him, but Kier sees him go into a building. He sees about ten people inside, all with the mark on their cheek. None on their forehead.
“mother” checks out the wares of the city.
Kier catches up, saying he knows where they are.
“mother” wants to talk to them. she knocks.
She asks about the symbol. He tells her the group is a gang about acquiring power. He tells her of a pub where he will be.
Hawkeye knows psychically that the man had an image of an 8 year old boy with the symbol in his head. He draws it.
Around the town, there are two types of guards. One in a fancier uniform which gets more distance from people than the other.
Kier notices the fancier guards have golden shackles with a wire that goes around them.
The power/glory mongers are watched by Kier, and have a rally while the others go to the magistrate.
We ask for the head magistrate, and “mother” acts as if it’s her child gone missing. Kenshin walks out.
She makes up a name, and tells them she’s seen him within a week’s time. Hawkeye plays the father.
“mother” signs the form no problem, but Hawkeye finds he can’t even make an X. He mentions he’s the stepfather, and mother “shoos” him.
They put a missing person’s alert out.
As “mother” walks outside, there is a missing person poster on the side of the building.
The man from the date does not show up at the inn.
Someone is watching “mother” though. She leans over, kisses Kier on the cheeck, and mentions it. They go to another bar.
She whispers “we’re being followed” to the rest of us on the way.
Kenshin and Hawkeye see at least one person on the roof.
Ellasandra turns into an owl in the shadows, and then sees the roofs. She sees three people who don’t belong on the roofs at this hour.
She comes back down and says there are three of them. Kenshin says we stop and fight. Hawkeye pops out (teleports) and goes behind one of the rooftop followers.
INITIATIVE!
The teleporter blasts the sneak.
Kenshin jumps to the roof, and thwacks one in the back of the head (sakabatou – nonlethal). The sneak goes down.
Kier gets to a roof too and says “why are you following us.” and he hears “someone said we were set up.”
Hawkeye is attacked but he grapples the guy.
Kier shows the symbol to his sneak, but his sneak doesn’t know what it means.
Kenshin goes to Hawkeye’s guy and thwacks him too, and he falls. They tie the two others up.
Kier tries convincing his sneak that perhaps we’re trying to join them. He finds out they’re working for “Briggs.”
He says they’re getting together the best of the best, recruiting high officers of mercenaries for power/fame/fortune.
The next meeting is in two nights, at the warehouse. He tells the man he’ll see him at the next meeting, and if he follows us Kier will kill him.
We leave the two tied up men where the garbage is.
