1:"You know. Fuck it. I'm being possessed by two different evil beings. Why not go for three? Ashvael get the Summoners ready I need to find a demon." Contact that demon I heard about

2:"Also prepare a shrew. I need to go take a look to see what  the new cities have to offer."

3:Lastly Cicilian goes to tell the Real Queen (B)Lich about the progress and Cicilian's experience with the ring

RESPONSES
1. According to a book called The Diaboliamibus, by an unknown author who's name is simply a complex rune, you need four things to summon iphosay. You need a sprig of hemlock, the blood of a doe, a powdered spider, and a magic circle that the light of the moon touches. The way it is phrased indicates to you that captured moonlight (well within your peoples magical knowledge) may work as well. Thats to summon Iphosay personally. To summon a mephit messenger to simply request an audience, you need a scrap of black mold (deadly, a monstrous mold), a chalice of blood mixed with tears, and a fire, which you put out with the mixture while invoking her. The book indicates the mephit that will appear is made entirely out of rotting fungus and will convey your message to her.

Ashvael tells you, "I found the book in a secret compartment in a house, it was so old it was covered with spiderwebs and dust. I also found this." He then shows you a terrifying dagger that looks like it was made by a torn out spine.

2. The 8 cities you control produce; iron ore, coal, beer&wine, stone crafts & furnishings, Emeralds and onyxes of simple to middling quality, fighting men, giant spiders, and books.

3. The liches court is a dismal castle's audience hall, a dizzying array of terrifying undead making up almost all the courtiers, with a few scattered beholders and one mind flayer. Ghoul lords, Subordinate liches, and Specters make up all the important camps. "I see. You will set about to find the dark one and release him. Dubdon is a mere trickster and of no concern to us. He is an unseelie, and you will probably never encounter him again."

EDIT: the lich is not aware of the book or the dagger unless you tell her. She is in the land of the dead, which you traveled to. Its a smelly, horrible place filled with rotting decay, wandering corpses, and the foul odor of cremation, as well as dark and damp, with water flowing in from above and in some areas lava flowing in from above, in the landscape in general. The dismal castle is safe (ish).

CLOVIS

1-2-3. Graxis spends but a moment to think this "offer" through, his only choice is to accept, however there is a problem.
"I accept the offer to fght in your bout, Great Thurgrus, however, there is a problem, my weapon, the warpick in my cell, was given to me by none other than Gabradoluk, and while it is an impressive weapon, if I where to use it against a devout of the gods, as I am sure this Cudgel the demon's bane is, I would quickly find myself smited and in hell, so Mighty Thugrus, I accept your offer, and I will crush this Cudgel in your name, however, I will require a new weapon."
Graxis's tone remained calm as he explained his predicament to the dragon, he kept the dragons gaze and refused to look away, the dragon wants him for his strength, no weakness will be shown.

RESPONSE
1-3: "Interesting. But he is hardly a holy man. He is a rogue. They call him the demon's bane because he only targets demons and 'evil-doers' to steal from. His weapon though, is quite harmful. He has an Ivory socketed long-sword of evil smiting. It will be interesting to see you fight him."

You are aware that ivory adds a significant bonus to the damage when it is used against anything evil, undead, or demonic. Its not an insta-gib, but if you get hit by it more than once or twice you'll have trouble.

"I suggest you eat and rest well. A family of huge spiders has taken up residence in an area of the cave I no longer use. You will use your weapon to clear them out. You will allow any lemures that result to remain. You suppose yourself to be much more important in the grand game than you actually are, the weapon you have, a weapon of lemure creation, is Gabradoluk's standard offer. A quarters has been prepared for you. You will see an elder orb, an ancient beholder. He is not your enemy, simply my servant, though you won't be interacting with him, at least, not at first."

The dragon mutters something unintelligible. FOOF. Two fire elementals appear to take you to your quarters.

DRUZA
Action 1: Recruit the ogres and attack the dorfs
Action 2: Fix the house
Action 3: Start cutting some forestry down

RESPONSE
1. The ogres attack with your combined force of goblins orcs and orogs. The Ogres battle with heinous brutality, their "weapons" such as they are, are simply huge carefully chipped boulders which they smash and crash with, then throw hard, stomping and kicking anyone who is underfoot. While every unit took casualties, ultimately the dorfs were forced to retreat, detonating the passage afterward, escaping through an underground route to an uncertain destination. Enraged, your men go on an orgy of killing. Ogres bite POWs in half, throw them against the ground, and stomp them as hard as they can, while orogs and orcs and goblins flay people and make them into rations. It is a massacre, and news of it spreads.

2. You find a stone quarry not far from the deserted village. In a short amount of time you have a enclosed series of 1 room buildings which makes a primitive fort.

3. Your work crew encountered a treant. You lost about half of them, but still brought back a sizable portion of wood, sticks, thatch, clay, and a small herd of pigs.

REDAETH
1. 3. Plead not guilty

I have not used the mana to empower myself, only to grow the forests faster then they would normally. I shall continue to use it to reverse millennia of damage and abuse and that will take power. A great deal of power.

My followers do not worship me, they believe in my cause and follow for that reason. I have gathered them under that banner and for no other reason.

I have raised no temples in my name, nor do priestesses shout my praises to the heavens. I have not asked my followers to stop worshiping the gods and goddesses they do and will not ask such.

I might not worship Lolorori myself but I love her for what she has wrought, she is responsible for much of the beauty in this world. I would never seek to usurp her.

I do not wish godhood, and swear on my soul that is so. I am happy as a Nymph and would not change that.

RESPONSE

The gods review your actions. During this time, you are held in the timeless room, a sub-dimension. At the end you are given a choice. Become an acknowledged paladin of Lolorori, or renounce your powers and become a human mortal, retaining all class levels and magic usages therefrom. "This, is my doom upon you, and with it, the matter is closed. My judgement is absolute and final." The god Palagus intones, the huge deity (size of a constellation or bigger) wearing a jurists attire. "What will you do?" Several other deities appear, each the size of a constellation, to form an enormous 'skyline' of gods and goddesses. Among them are the wise and elderly god Lolorimsin, a god of prophecy, Aphosam the terrifying, faceless god of death, and Oloni, the beautiful but distant goddess of the moon. They wait for your word, ready to acknowledge you as a paladin if you accept this, or to remove your powers if you don't.

Palagus or Aphosam could smite the living shit out of you if you tried anything kooky. So don't.

1-3; I guess I should hide these somewhere... I wonder if there's a way to get back to my castle from here? I'll search around this coral place for some way, I'm sure there HAS to be a waay~! Lucky I found those pearls too!

RESPONSE
A maelstrom elemental, the biggest elemental you've ever seen (size of a hurricane or bigger), picks you up by passing overhead by chance, and, whirling you around until your unconscious, carries you a great distance.

....you wake up quite near your old castle, so near to it that you can see it in the distance not to far away.

....was it all a dream?

You're laying on a big half-underwater sandbar.

MANDINGO
Retired old character, created new character Goth the tiefling witch-doctor.

RESPONSE
You awake in the swamp near nightfall of the third and final day, having successfully changed the poison of specterdom into a potion of the far realms inside your body by the various drugs you took. You are laying on the ritual pyre, your chosen second, also a tiefling, holding a torch and maintaining the vigil. You are no longer simply a tiefling, but now a witch doctor, connected to decay, horror, terror, and spirits. But not in the same way a necromancer is. Your magic 'feels' a bit more like what a druid must feel like. You don't feel the unnatural pull towards the land of the dead that eventually maddens most necromancers, and you don't feel the chill finger of death over your heart like a necromancer normally does.

Your house is not far. You have been unconscious but attired on the pyre for the last three days.

You may give your chosen second a name and gender, but they are a tiefling like you. Your chosen second is ritually answerable to you now, for life, since you successfully made the change. Few people make the change, most die on the second or third day.

1:"Not to question your judgement My Liege but are you sure about releasing the dark one? From what I've read he's not keen on leaving anyone alive, and if your plan was to just kill everything I doubt you'd leave me in charge of the Underdark. So if you don't mind me asking why would you free him?"

2:After that conversation Cicilian pulls out the dagger but leaves the book hidden. "Also my queen, while I was going through my archives for information on the dark one one of my trusted higherlings came across this sacrificial knife. Would you happen to have any information on it?"

3:After that is done Cicilian returns to the underdark. Once there she has her minions go around looking for the materials required to summon a messenger. She doubts bringing a demon god in without asking would end well.

Chosen second, a teenaged girl who I named Rogi'm after I claimed her as payment for healing her infantile sickness. I was planning on using her as ingredients after she had grown but she showed quite the interest in my art, so I kept her around, and she eventually became my second, my daughter, and really the only other person that I can stomach.

1: I return to my house and command my second to gather the necessities for a long journey with no foreseeable end; My reagents pouches, two bedrolls, food and drink, a weapon for her (I refuse to sully my hands with melee combat) and various other sundries that she deems necessary.

2-3: Experiment in the kitchen!! Attempt to cook up some potions for the road, if I am thusly capable. Whatever I am capable of producing that might be deemed useful in the future shall be brewed and packed.
If I am not that kind of witch doctor, then I shall simply assist my second in packing and then spend a final day enjoying my house before I leave to restore my swamp to its former glory.

Dafty I'm pretty sure you cannot force someone who doesn't worship a god into being a paladin of that god. Paladin's generally need to have faith.

Also the outcome of the trial doesn't make much sense. If I am not guilty of trying to become a god, why I am I being punished? If I am guilty why am I being made into her Paladin of the goddess when the charge is trying to depose her?

Finally aren't the gods taking a hands off approach to the world? Why are they interfering?

I mean the entire premise of the game is that they are letting monsters run amok.

Dafty wrote:Essentially an in brief without 50 thousand paragraphs of lore that we'll only use once; there are way, way to many mortal race people in the world. Way to many. On top of that, way to many super strong (level 80 or above) heros have appeared in all the races. So, as a test, the Gods of Elgyria have decided to back off and see how strong mortals really are. They still answer prayers and send mortals magic, but they aren't flitting about the mortal realm physically-there doing stuff.

This entire scenario seems kinda dickish. Suddenly the gods come from on high to punish thee!

The scenario doesn't have the outcome you're expecting. Something that makes sense in the setting happens either way. When I said don't try anything kooky, I was saying don't try to fight your way out.

Hint: You get out either way.

Well, since I don't wish to become human, and I can't in good conscious become a Paladin of a god I do not worship I don't really see a way for me to proceed.

Bonuses
Chief - Social status. This is marked by tattoos on a bugbear's arms, and is obvious to any bugbear who looks.
Warlord - You are roughly level 5 fighter already.

1. “Thank you for your advice, Mighty Thugrus, I will begin preparing myself immediately.” Graxis will go to collect his warpick from his former cell, a simple weapon of lemure creation, Graxis sneers, Garbradoluk is a fool to have only offered me his standard deal, he is blind to my great potential.

2. After collecting his Warpick Graxis remembers what Thugrus said about the demon bane and his ivory weapon, and while Graxis doesn't consider himself evil, the ivory may think differently. Graxis will clear out the spiders carefully, rather than charge in and overwhelm them he will methodically and systematically wipe them out, he will attempt to kill all of them without receiving a single wound. His Training has begun.

3. Idly Graxis ponders the duality of good and evil, what is it that defines “good” and “evil”? Is Graxis evil simply because he is a bugbear? Is he evil for aspiring to create an empire?
Does that make other empires creations of evil? Or is it that, Graxis’s tactics define him as evil? Would he be considered “good” if he worshiped a proper god?
Perhaps the ideology of “good” and “evil” are simply constructs of man, and thus the ivory doesn’t so much react to evil as it reacts to certain conditions that the target would have, Graxis has struck a deal with Gabradoluk and slain others so he would be considered “evil”, but would a soldier in an army be considered evil or a general?
This is definitely a train of thought that needs to be explored later, but for now Graxis needs to focus on clearing out the spiders and his training.

RESPONSE
1-3. That night you have a strange dream. In the dream, you find yourself standing in the land of the dead in some location you aren't familiar with, burning lava in one area, a waterfall of tears and ice falling nearby too. There, 8 HUMONGOUS demons, way, waaaay bigger than Thurgus the dragon, converse in a hideous, brutal language you don't understand. The creatures are so immensely huge that they could crush you for instant-death with their smallest fingers. The impression you get is that what you are seeing is real, and that gabradoluk may be way, waaaay more powerful and huge than you originally thought. Cydarax, the prince of monstrous humanoids, watches over your actions during this time, a looming fearful darkness of evil and aggression oozing from the creature as a smokey dark substance, Cydarax having traits of a; goblin, orc, ettin, fomorian, drider, mind flayer, gnoll, crab-man, and scorpion man. The horribly deformed being doesn't say anything, but gives off a fearful emanation that makes your hair (all of it) stand on end in the terror of fearing to make even one mistake. In the distance, a demon so large its wings make all the wind in the land of the dead, spews lava, icy slush, and boiling fire at seemingly random from several faces at once as it struggles to wrench itself free of the landscape.

2. While this goes somewhat to plan, you are able to see how effective in battle the lemures are; not very. Nevertheless, the grotesque, blood sweating blobs of twisted rotting tissues have enough power that they slaughter and eat some of the spiders. It gets ugly for a moment for you when your foot gets caught up in a spiders webbing and you suffer two painful bites, one on your shoulder, one on your chest. Fortunately, the one on your chest only partly penetrated your armor. Both the bites leave permanent scars, but you're resistant to poison anyway, so you don't actually get poisoned.

Several lemures now wander the cave freely.

You may harvest the spiders bodies at the cost of 1 action and 1 roll if you wish to, Thurgus informing you of this via a spell of telepathy.

Action 3: See if i can make a prisoner transform horribly into a pig/whatever they are

RESPONSE
1. Confrontation; Thrain Throringling, son of Oin, challenges your leader to a 1 on 1 fight. Thrain is a level ?? dwarf fighter with a oaken copper-banded shield, a mace that is magic in some way, a horned helm, steel leggings, bronze boots, bronze gauntlets, and steel halfplate. The terms of the battle are; it is to be 1 on 1, he and his people travel freely away if he wins.

2. Your forces searching brings forth a single manticore, the awesome looking being having a scorpion's tale, two bird like wings, a tigers body, and a woman with long hair's head. She tells you flat out she won't serve you unless you win against the challenging dwarf. Manticore are known to be ultra-powerful spellcasters, angering her is probably not a good idea. But they also ALWAYS keep their word no matter what, so if you can beat the dwarf, you have her.

3. Your experimental actions unintentionally create the very first Thrull, mindless, scar covered beings that exist only to be a living sacrifice to power spells. The problem is; you aren't sure exactly how you did that. You need to study it more.

Fighting the dwarf hero will be decided in a single round, and will cost all 3 actions. However, the manticore waits for the outcome, so you can spend the turn doing that and then still get the manticore and continue on.

REDAETH
"I am innocent of the charges you accused me of. What Justice is there in punishing me? I refuse to accept either choice. Strike me down for this farce of a trial if you must, but my fellows shall continue furthering my vision. "

RESPONSE
The gods and goddesses speak their language, Vaylenvaro. You understand a few words here and there but the gist of what is said is lost on you. They then all vanish except three, Ruthcanom, the god of time, Lolorori the goddess of nature, and the supremely hugely massively powerful Kathariami, one of the goddesses who made the universe along with her husband's help, Uthosam, who is not present.

Lolorori explains in detail that a time of changing is coming, and that she will be retiring to another world to be the nature goddess there. This whole experience was a test of your strength of character, and it has been decided that when the right time comes, centuries in the future, you will be called to the floating lands to be the next nature goddess. Ruthcanom and Kathariami change the flow of space and time. This aspect of your fate is now locked.

But still a loooooong way in the future.

ZOOP!

You're back with Laurolyn in the Crystal palace, where things have noticibly relaxed now that formal decisions have been made. The palace is no longer a semi-hostile location and you are no longer under guard.

MANDINGO
1: I return to my house and command my second to gather the necessities for a long journey with no foreseeable end; My reagents pouches, two bedrolls, food and drink, a weapon for her (I refuse to sully my hands with melee combat) and various other sundries that she deems necessary.

2-3: Experiment in the kitchen!! Attempt to cook up some potions for the road, if I am thusly capable. Whatever I am capable of producing that might be deemed useful in the future shall be brewed and packed.

RESPONSE
1. Surprise! A group of red-caps, hideous goblins who's reddish forehead seeps deadly poison in big sweat drops, was caught breaking into your home and stealing a bunch of stuff. You only got the bare BARE necessities, but you did get all the necessities, if a little light on the food and cross-bow ammo department.

2-3: You found that the red-caps didn't understand what the toad flask was, so you got a flask of toad dust, the grains instantly becoming big toad when a pinch of them is thrown from the flask. 1 grain = 1 toad. As for potions, you were able to make a potion of sleep, a potion-bomb of stinking cloud, 2 potions of minor healing, and you found that your shrunken head, a mummified skull which has had all the hair made into a rope-grip, is intact, since they dropped it on the way out. Unfortunately you haven't used this shrunken head in a long time and you don't really remember what it does.

GLITTERSHINE
1:"Not to question your judgement My Liege but are you sure about releasing the dark one? From what I've read he's not keen on leaving anyone alive, and if your plan was to just kill everything I doubt you'd leave me in charge of the Underdark. So if you don't mind me asking why would you free him?"

2:After that conversation Cicilian pulls out the dagger but leaves the book hidden. "Also my queen, while I was going through my archives for information on the dark one one of my trusted higherlings came across this sacrificial knife. Would you happen to have any information on it?"

3:After that is done Cicilian returns to the underdark. Once there she has her minions go around looking for the materials required to summon a messenger. She doubts bringing a demon god in without asking would end well.

RESPONSE
1. "I'm keen on releasing him because when he's free the gods can be kept busy with him instead of with me." The lich explains casually.

2. "I see." The lich looks at the knife for a long moment before she answers. "It is a knife of Zhor the handless. Few still exist and I'm not sure what it does. You will find the person who owned it and question them very thoroughly. Do not hesitate to skin them alive and rip their soul out. This is my command to you."

Zhor the handless is known to you, faintly. A historical figure from a remote period. He is said to have come from another plane, or perhaps another reality, but sages dispute that and claim that his home, Phyrexia, was simply a region the location of which is no longer known. His hand supposedly survives somewhere, but, as sages affirm, it is all that is left of him.

3. You gather the mold, ashvael nearly dying when his hand slips and the monstrous mold blasts him in the face, (ashvael hospitalized for 1 turn), the chalice is made, the blood and tears are easy enough to get. The mixture is ready. Actually doing the ritual itself however does cost an action. So you need to use one of your next 3 actions to do the ritual.

I am not one to walk away from such an insult. The goblins, unintelligent though they may be, should have known better than to trespass on MY grounds and steal MY property.
Well, time to start a genocide. My journey will be delayed until I have exterminated every redcap I can locate in the area.
1: I send out my second to attempt to locate goblin residences. I give her the stinking cloud potion in case she needs a quick escape and a minor healing potion in case she needs to recover. She is ordered to not take action against the redcaps. They will know soon enough what we have planned for them.

2-3: Something about this withered skull rings of importance to me. I play with it for a bit, attempting to remember its purpose or rediscover it through use. If I can't figure it out, I experiment with the effect that it has on the toads. If that doesn't yield results, I suppose I'll have to wait until I get some redcap subjects...

3. As Graxis lays himself down to sleep again his mind is once again drawn to thoughts of Cydrax and the other demon lords, the entire scenario was very intriguing, what where they discussing? What was that massive creature? And most importantly, why was Graxis there? As he continues along this train of thought he finds himself thinking of Cydrax, Graxis had heard of the tales, of the cults, Cydrax his races supposed creator, his creator.

Simple tribes struggling to simply exist while the humans and other races have built themselves damn empires! Are we some cosmic joke?

1-3: A strong opening allows you some early headway against the dorfish challenger, injuring him twice, before he injures you once. Unfortunately, his weapon is a weapon of impact, and when he hits you, he shatters your shield, breaks your arm, and throws you 10 feet across the area, where you land on your side. However, you surprise him by rolling over suddenly and his mace lodges in the dirt for a moment, allowing you to stick him in the throat with your weapon.

Your forearm is pulverized. It needs to be amputated. The Manticore offers you a choice. She'll heal your arm, then leave, OR, join your force, and remain, without healing your arm.

Your forces gained numerous weapons and armor, a scattered few of which are magical.

1: The red caps mostly live in a big old tree near the river, it seems that the hollowed out tree is the entrance to a cave system. It also seems to only have one entrance or exit that your second could find.

2-3: You flubbed it badly and accidentally cursed yourself. You become a small helpless piglet for 1 hour.

1. A nice card and a bottle of whiskey reaches ashvael.

2. Guards avoid entering your summoning chamber.

3. The magic symbols become a door, and through the door steps a 4 foot tall fungus/mold/seaweed looking imp creature with a big nose, scattered and few teeth, big ears, and a pipe. "What do you want of the darkness?" The being asks casually, blood red eyes weeping stinky tears of puss.

Celestayna informs you that it was by design of the gods that ugnux got out, and that is the only reason it got out. It has a role to play in the next chapter of things, and should remain unmolested for the time being.

She goes on to say that though their actions are not known to you, the deeds of her and her courtiers are aligned to your goal already, explaining that they were never not on your side.

1. The bones are suitable to make arrows, the teeth make fine caltrops. (small spiky objects thrown onto the ground when you're being pursued). The venom sacks are a bit harder to harvest, but you do get some of them. The web sacks are easier to harvest, but are of no use to you as you are not a caster.

2. Thurgus gives you a ring of the sparring partner. It creates a magical skeleton that starts at level 0 and rises in level each time its defeated. It doesn't have HP or stamina, it simply rises again and again until you take the ring off or destroy it 10 times in a row.

3. A voice comes to your ears. Maybe its a dream. Maybe its a message. "..no purpose.... no meaning.... no plan..."

2: Continue experimenting with the head, its power is obviously great.

3: Dispatch my second to attempt to find individual red caps out alone. She will kill them with the crossbow and return them to me for experimentation.

1-2. “Thank you mighty Thugrus, this ring will suit our mutual purpose very well.” After thanking the dragon Graxis will return to his quarters and begin intensely training. Again he focuses on not being hit, deflecting or redirecting blows, looking for opportunities to deliver a fatal finisher to his opponent.

3. Graxis thinks on the words, it could not have been a dream, it has to have been a message, but the meaning… Cydrax created us without purpose, without meaning, he has no great plan for us. Graxis cannot help the smile that creeps onto his face “Perfect”. Graxis, and all of the bugbears, perhaps even all of monsterkind are the masters of their own destiny, there is no unseen hand guiding and manipulating us, they were not created for a something and can thus be anything. “We are overlooked, we are ignored but we will rise”. Graxis begins to think and he begins to plan, it would be a great task to unite monsterkind underneath him and his banner, much needs to be done. Graxis spends a great deal of time planning how he would make his monster empire.

2. 3.  Ask Celestayna if she has way to aid us in our search for the Gong, then begin the journey towards Amon Anar. Perhaps further clues lie there.

RESPONSE
Results of 6, 7 - When your second gets back, she nearly cooks you before you snort and transform with no warning, your second shrieking AIYEEE suddenly and blowing the fire out as hard as she can with a bellows in a moment of high comedy. After that she nervously tells you about how she was tracking the red caps and had to suddenly turn back when they were visited by an Ettin, a two headed giant. The local ettins resemble creoles and are aware of juju, the magic energy that witch doctors use, but your second is able to tell you that the ettin is likely simply a big warrior, as it had a shield and an axe.

Action 2 - You remember that the head is a Sneering shrunken head of hexing, which, when carried into battle, somewhat randomly casts the curse of pigletizing, which transforms enemies into a small, helpless piglet. It does this regardless of size, though as sages affirm, dragons are immune, completely immune, to curses, unless it is their ancient and powerful form of riddle cursing, a mystery of magic even archmages don't always understand, and far above your level in any case.
