Whispers of Forgotten Ages

Welcome to WFA
Campaign...a beginning

In midlle of Therendor (early Spring) in the year 1006 YK at the University of Wynarn our characters find themselves hoisted from their comfortable positions of learning…

And it started with a rejection.....
Week One

Our adventure began with Myself, Ian and Kevin’s character (henceforth known as Goken, Artifex-5 and Maralen respectively) being kicked out of Wynarn Academy, one of the most prestigious schools for adventurers to attend in the kingdom of Aundair. We were given a week (that turned into a night) of lodgings in one of the middle class neighborhoods of the city and sent on our way. While Artifex and Goken had been relatively acquainted before, it took a little bit of time for Maralen to warm up to either of us, or for us to warm up to her for that matter. While taking our respite in the Eagle’s Rest, we spent several hours being accosted by an overly drunk Half Orc named Kak who was very curious about us, particularly with Goken didn’t drink, and what we could go. we learned of the possibility of work with the House Orion’s coach business and decided that the three of us would go to explore that option the following morning.

The next morning we attempted, with no luck, to gain employment at the Guild house of House Orion and then the primary station for the lightning coaches. After failing that, we decided to check out the University District and see if any of our old favorite professors would be willing to help find us employment through their contacts. We went to one of the premier taverns in the U District, the Library, and attempted to find someone who might show us some favor. Our luck did not seem to be with us until Artifex noticed the master of Laboratories (whose name escapes me, if someone wants to insert that here) that he had known during his time at the school. the Professor prompted adjourned to the Faculty only section, and after some failed attempts to lie our way in, Maralen thought it a far better idea to deploy a magical fog cloud over the whole bar and sneak into the section. We were immediately confronted by the Professor, who was a pompous ass, wanting to know what in the hell we were doing. After some delicate diplomacy (and a 50 gp glass of wine) he informed us that the Master of the Antiquities Museum, Professor Kelsen Dor, might have need of our services.

We proceeded to the Antiquities Museum and met the Professor’s assistant, Beatrice Sykes, who told us there was a job, but to return in about an hour while she attempted to find him among the exhibits and stacks of the Museum. After spending an hour perusing the Museum and then listening to the tall tales of old timers in the Adventurer’s VFW across the street, we came back and presented ourselves to Professor Kelsen Dor. He told us he needed some strong and skilled people to escort a selection of parts being sent to the Starpeaks Observatory in the mountain to the north of city in time for a very important event. After that he needed a letter delivered out to the Thronehold island to an old friend of his. after some haggling over the price of the journey and our bonuses, we took our leave and prepared for the trip.

The following morning Beatrice arrived to show us to the House Orion staging area for our quest. We were given horses, presented with the wagon carrying all of the parts and equipment and then introduced to Dale, our small human driver out on his first caravan. We rode off but it wasn’t a few hours before we were attacked by two bandits looking for our lives. We handily dispatched the two would be assassins and learned, thru some influential magic, that these two had been dispatched by someone named “The Master” to dispose of us. They had orders on them that included detailed drawings of all of our group, what our cargo was and what route we planned to take. It also included an odd seal none of us could recognize and a small child’s poem that our prisoner told us was used for “authentication”.

Symbol carried by attackers

With nothing left to learn from the attackers, we left them tied to a tree, arrived at the nearest town and reported their whereabouts, and stopped in a park for to camp for the night.

Character Journals

just a quick thought,

I thought it would be cool if we each started a journal post for our characters on here, that way we can have a better idea of where everyone is coming from and their thoughts, back story, whatever. just provide a little dynamic experience for us all. I will start and i hope others follow with me.

Maralen's Journal

(OOC: I’ll assume anything written in this journal, which is safely guarded by Maralen, is nothing more than entertainment for you, the player. I’m not one to make secretive characters, and really have no qualms sharing anything about my character out of game, but any information disclosed here I hope you will keep separate from character knowledge! PS sorry if these get long or lame…but Ima have fun writing them!)

Day 7, in the 35th year of Service to the shadow.

The New Moon act as harbinger for the shadow’s will. With the moon absent from the evening sky, the threads of fate are twisted, and I am asked to leave the Academy. Is no matter, I gained all I could from the menial institution long ago, I’ll only miss the grotto I’d been able to find and keep hidden from all those prowling eyes. Already I miss the cool embrace of constant dark, shadowed there, even at the eve of Summer. Alas, though, I can only assume that whatever Shadowy presence I’ve come to embrace as deemed my time there done, and for whatever reason, pushes me on my…current endeavor.
The threads of fate are are cut and stitched
And sunrise leads to sunset’s itch.
Where light prevails, the shadow sends
To meet whatever darkness ends.
I find myself in the company of some rather strange folk, but, I’ve an eye for providence, and I know this be the will of my nil-illuminated benefactor. As far as companions go, they seem decent enough. The ugly one can fight, and the machine can craft, both skills I can…appreciate. Unfortunately, what they have in skill and brawn, they seem to lack almost completely in dealing with even the most basic elements of population. So while it’s fun to interweave with words and riddles, I must put that aside from time-to-time had bare a proper face to deal with these…people.

I know not where the sun will set, but only that I travel there. I long for the caress, even a single touch, of the infinite dark that only true shadow can give…I can only hope as I continue is His service, He will judge me worthy to ascend with Him.

Dylan's Case Book: Case 215- Starry Eyed

Day 5

I met up with Starry Eyes in Rli Co to report to him the death of the primary team and the kidnapping of his assistant. The poor woman, I can only hope that those changeling freaks don’t hurt her too much. After some initial investigations together we encountered the decoy crew at the local jail, only to happen upon the aftermath of a massacre. The Deuce, they call themselves, I have heard of their work but never encountered them before. Changeling partners, deadly, stealthy and nigh impossible to detect till it’s too late. The decoy team apparently learned that the hard way, and the one that was attacked (a severely ugly fellow with a very large sword and quite the temper, according to the guard who arrested him) quit in a spectacular fashion. Starry assigned the decoy team to me and we began our investigation. The two that were left seem competent enough. There is Castle, an inventor with a curious disposition and Tangled, an odd but beautiful witch who mutters to herself enough for me to think the bat she keeps in her shirt can talk back.

It took quite the investigation*, but we found our way to the *!@# and the Ril Ark. After toying with his middle men a bit, we met with Dark Cloak, their leader. He was a tougher sort, and I had to give him a few names in Freehaven of those who can “help” him bring the drug trade back into the city and the University (lesser dunces of nobles who will fall over themselves to help but will fail wonderfully, and hopefully take the gang down with them) but he gave us the location of what we sought. Some fancy magic from my two companions blinded and stunned the remaining guards and some blade work did for those that escaped the darkness. We recovered the stolen items and returned to Starry Eyes.

Ultimately I think that these Deuce assassins are going to be a much bigger issue that we are equipped for without some help, yet I get the sense they are only dogs put on our trail by a much bigger and dangerous Master. My contacts in the town were mute on that subject so we will have to see.

*side note: check with my contacts and make sure that foreman’s family is taken care of after they learn the fate of their father. No kid should lose their dad that way and have to starve because of it.

Alahan's Journal Entry #345
WHat the hell have i got myself into...

It has been almost a full year now since my rapid departure from Valenar lands and i feel compelled to add another page into this journal to capture the events of my life in the event that my brother finds me unable to tell the story of what has become of me. Today marks a sort of milestone in my bid to integrate into the mainstream culture that i find myself in. Today i got a job… and a high paying job at that. No more do i need to float along the outskirts of civilization, making a living off of scavenging money and equipment by downing inferior opponents like bandits and others who would prey on the weak. I was just sitting in a tavern when an old human named Kelsen Dor(sp??)approached me and, in desperation, asked if i would serve as a guide for some employees of his heading to the Starpeaks despite me admitting i have never been to the Starpeaks before… The pay was 500 gold a week which is way more than i have ever been paid before. I met with the group that i was to serve as a guide for, and i must admit that they seem to be a capable collection of individuals. There are three of them: A Warforged donning heavy armor that can also cast arcane magic named Artifex-5, a half-elf swashbuckler named Dylan and an elven arcane caster named Maralen. After introductions I was quickly made aware that the group is very busy and likes to get involved in a number of noble undertakings. In this case, it was saving Kelsen Dor’s assistant named Beatrice who had gone missing. Out of pure curiosity I decided to tag along and like the others did not ask for any compensation. Our search led us to rescue the little girl from some golbinoid slavers who had taken up shop in an old warehouse. After defeating the inferior albeit aggressive creatures it was interesting to see that Dylan, the apparent leader of this band, wanted us to keep all of our foes alive, a thought that goes against my upbringing. I agreed to let this all play out and Maralen and I questioned our prisoners. In the process of intimidating the filthy lower creatures a fireball erupted around us engulfing nearly all of us killing our captives. The chase was on and Maggie and I were on the heels of our arcane assailant. We cornered the invisible foe in a dead end alleyway but it was too late, the foe had gotten away using teleportation magic… yes teleportation magic. I am beginning to wonder if 500 gold is enough now. I hope my new companions are able to match such magic or we are all going to have to close with this foe fast in hopes of preventing it from killing us. I come to find out that this foes was one of a pair of assassins bent on causing trouble for the group and they called themselves the Duec. A pair of changlings, one reportedly male and one female, brother and sister, sister dabbling in arcane magic and the brother a melee specialist. Oh what my brother wouldn’t give to be involved now. Anyways, I got maps of the Starpeaks and surrounding areas and we are heading to our destination now.
