Leaves From The Vine

Se'Tema Session 8

After what seemed like a an eternity at sea, there was finally some excitement, and of course it came in one swell foop. After a brief jaunt through what was a surprisingly clean portable pit, we came back on deck and then, finally, there was a fight. some kobold pirates tried to get the drop on us. Sadly the fight only lasted 24 seconds (it was so short I counted), but it was good after a long period of inactivity to stretch out a little and I’ve been much calmer since (the bottle of whiskey helps too of course).

Oh. And I pulled some guy out of the pit. Haven’t seen him around too much… kinda forgot about him actually. Huh.

Haradion: Session 8 (2017-03-21)

It seems that we’re fated to accumulate an ever-increasing number of tag-alongs in this journey. First Glyss’s nephew (who seems unpleasantly…cold), then an enigmatic and hopelessly insane stranger, and finally an entire crew of kobolds. Of all these, though, the stranger interests me the most.

I suppose I should explain the circumstances in which we found him. Weeks ago, we defeated a group of cultist bandits and confiscated their supplies. Among their possessions was a strange portal to a miserable maze of muck.

(To be continued…)

Session 8 Alright… Were on our Ship the Melanie, and it’s been a few months since we started. I learned a lot in handling a ship and being a quartermaster. So far, our journey has been good one, one day we remember that we have the Pit of Otyuhg, and that Glyss wouldn’t buy it because it smelled Bad. So, we decided to go inside and clean it. So, we went inside Me being me, I rush in and get myself lost and it was only to my friends that I made it out. But as we were down here, we found a Prisoner that was babbling. With some close calls, we made it out of here. When we got out of the pit and tuck stock of what we went through. All my clothing and besides my Magical ones and Armor which only left my Shirt and Pants that was dissolved. I tried making sure the Captain saw me. Well after cleaning the muks off me and getting some clothes on. We get word from the Crow’s-nest that we have a Pirate ship on its way to us. But we had time to rest for a short time before the battle. We fought the Cobalt it was a short battle but in the end, we won. I couldn’t hit anything again… it’s my luck.

we got back to the city and gave Glyss Whitefeather the Blackthorne Rose, we got for him and then he asked if he could know the place that it grows but I couldn’t tell him for it was not mine to give. Then we heard a lot of noise come from the back it turned out to be Glyss’s nephew he looks like a clumsy person to me. and then just to get rid of him he told us to take him with us and he would give us a 5% discount when we bought him back alive. and me having this money burning a hole in my pocket I convinced him to give us 2.5% now. and 2.5% when he came back. with that, we took a few nights in the city as I found a ship to take us to the The BreakLands so we could check up on the map we got. I found one and we talk the guy into going but we had to get the crew so I took care of that and got us a good crew and we met the captain and her officers and set sail. as we went Brother Longfoot, who is the ship’s cartographer we ask him about making a better map for us and he said he could and that I would cost 15000 GP to do so. so we did it but part of me thinks we should have taken the map to a priest to get the curse removed first. but anyway as we met with the officer to name the ship and to help Thrang out because we always need a reminder of what we lost for without it. we can not grow to be better men. so I offered the name of Melanie to name this fine ship and to make it better the captain’s mother’s name is Melaine. Yes I looked over and saw Thrang give me the stink eye but It stuck and now the fine ship Melanie is on her way.

Session 7 Ok, I want to say first that I’m a Stupid buger fool of a man!!! Ha, after our encounter with the bandits, my companions and I make it to Ba-sing-se. We meet with Glyss and as we are concluding our Contract and our business in selling our lute.

In doing this, we hear a noise that happens in the back of the shop and we get to meet Glyss’s Nephew. Vladimir Hohenhiem, He’s a Dragon Born.

Glyss wants us to take his Nephew on our adventure, and we agree. Our contract with Glyss is to make sure he returns alive, in a year’s time. Alright… that the Business we had that day during the night I wanted to have a great time with a companion… NOT my friends! But a different kind of Companion… the Next morning I have contracted a disease and so while my friends are waiting at the meeting point… I’m dealing with this sickness and Glyss helps me in getting the right cure… when I finely meet up with my Friends with Hoheniem right behind me, they asked what tuck so long, and luckily I diverted a question in that we needed to find us a boat to take us across the Silent Sea. But Setema and I locked eyes, and I think he know what I did. Crap why the hack am I such a fool!!??

we took Melanie to Broem’s house and there we talked to him about the map that goes some strange thing started to happen I could tell it was a put of the curse that was on him Se Tema touched him and went into a trance of some sort thinking back I know I hear something about curses be able to be broken so at that point we all felt the need to help Broem and I then found myself on the bank of a great lake and on the other side there was a castle and in one of the towers there was a light I felt that I needed to go to it. looking at the lake there were stepping stone to cross the lake so I took them and it was hard but do but was able. and got there and Broem was there I took his hand and then saw the other doing the same. then a mountain was is our site and I could feel it pulling on me. we all were back in Broem’s house and Broem started to asked what day it was and so we told him and he said something that at this time I cannot recall. because I have the strange sense that the mountain is pulling me to it. just then Broem tried to run and slipped and cracked his head on the fireplace. Thrang just barely missed saving him and then Melanie screamed and said we killed him. and then Mayor Gorst threw us in jail and to make things worst three of the villagers set it on fire so I went out so I may stay trial but my friend ran and Mayor Gorst attack me and nearly tried to kill me. but Lord Thane came just in time and save us from the mob as well as gave us the trial that was needed. after that we were told to leave so we did and as we traveled back to Ba Sing Se we came upon a town the was having Bandit problems and I did well at holding them off for the first bit but they overcame us and just as I was about to go Unconscious Se Tema who was off to see his dad came and got the last hit on the last one. and we toke the gold and everything that we need and went back to the village.

Se'Tema Intersession Level Up

At last the whole rigamarole of satisfying family honor has ended. I did not expect it to be so convoluted, or so deadly. Still, I have wind of an adventure that promises wealth, power, and bloodshed, so it was well worth it.

It was nice to be away from my companions though. Some of them try my patience exceedingly. I have drunk more alcohol over the last week trying to keep my cool then I ever have. And of course once I returned from my journey, I found my band of brave warriors dying at the hands of some shrimpy little dancing men who didn’t even outnumber them… I can’t even…

I do believe this was the longest I had been away from either of the temples of my parents at one stretch, and when I came back I realized that there is a substantial aura of power at this place. The scent of dragons weighs heavily there. and ever since I returned to my father, I dream… strange dreams. I see scraps and fragments of the lives of my ancestors, Ahpohcohlipseese and Ahrmahhedohn, the great reds.

Thrang Sivlersmith Bandit Incouter 3-4-2017

On our Way to the Sea we stopped at a small Village to rest, and we heard that the people are in need of some help taking care of some Bandits, we offered our assistance. We lead a trap and we got 2 out of 5, we followed the others to the hind out. In trying to Flush them out a battle ensued it was hard.

I for one was learning because this was one of my first fight with my new armor and weapon, so I was learning… these Bandits for some reason was every lucky in hitting us and getting through our defenses. Se Tama was off visiting his Dad and Ian went to the Sea port, to find us a ship for our journey. So it was Haradion and Plamen and I. Faced these 3 Bandits and we all were knocked out, not until we killed 2out of 3 and the last one should signs that he was close…. Se Tama showed up and attacked the lost one and killed him.

Haradion: Session 6 (2017-02-28)

Broem, alas, is dead. Whatever curse afflicted him was ultimately beyond our power to reverse, and it should not be surprising that the villagers blamed us. Neither does it really surprise me that this would result in fear and rioting; even trained soldiers fear magic, so what can one expect from superstitious villagers, especially when Se Tema displays his powers so openly before them? My training told me there was no way for us to stand against the mob, especially without our equipment. But what else was there to do? Even with invisibility, getting my comrades and their equipment out safely would have been like sneaking elephants out of a caravan. It was only Lord Thane’s intervention that saved us, and the price of that salvation was banishment from Tamarind Village. The injustice still stings, but in the end, it’s about the best we could have expected.

It seems that Broem left some armor and a sword for Thrang. He’ll need training, but the change seems to suit him. I’m not certain that I can say the same of my own changes. I went to scratch my nose today and nearly removed it from my face. My … scaly face. It’s fortunate that I managed to get a Hat of Disguise; no one else must know of this until I can determine what is happening to me.
