Summer 805WK

Adventures Going Out

1)      Exchequer to Duke – They wish to create a giant necropolis to house 
all the bodies of the fallen from around Brastor, the idea being to ensure 
that necromancers don’t get at them. Guards are required to guard the 
carriage and the workers. Standard rates will be paid. – Low, Tuesdays, 
Lynfield (William)

2)      Lt Mordren (a dwarf). Looking for warriors to go and get an item. 
Medium/High, Thursdays, Massey (Claire)

3)      A distinguished drow. An item is required back at home. The payment 
is two thirds of the loot plus a chosen item from the treasury. The scroll 
describing where the item was suddenly became readable, unfortunately, not 
the only copy, so others may be out after it as well. Hobbits and humans 
asked for, no elementalists. Tuesdays (Mike Parkinson)

4)      A seven foot cloaked figure. Requires a party to rescue part of the 
Empire that was falling to Darkness. Medium, Fridays, Mangere Bridge. (Alan).

5)      A blue skinned goblinoid. The abominations on his plane have found 
surface allies. To counter this, a meeting of the dwarven clans is to be 
arranged. The party needs to ensure that the conference happens. Payment 
5000sp plus a bonus for each clan bought to the table. Medium, Wednesday 

After parties were assigned, an overflow was required. Bernard offered to 
run one on Thursdays.


1)      Smartest

a)      TDP Roberts. There were two opposing items, one of mana, one of 
anti-mana and they could not be handled.. The requirement was to separate 
them. TDP came up with the idea of using a net and drag it out.
b)     Taynel – for solving the portal puzzle, deducing the location of the 
other portals in the pattern. Also for a clever method of getting around a 
pit, climbing sideways around the wall.
c)      Thaeuss/Penni – The party were on the top of a tower wondering 
where to go next. Those two thought to examine the toes of the gargoyles 
around the sides and located the tiny gold thread that was the next clue.

the slope bouncing through the corners –and was very battered, bruised, and 
broken at the other end
c)      Cayenne – The party were going to an oracle to find out the nature 
of a Doom. When the oracle said “I can give you your own Dooms”, the entire 
party said “Yes!”
d)     Clarissa – Ordered the party necromancer to cast Warp Wood on stone 
walls, and wondered why nothing happened. Also managed to get stuck on a 
ledge and had to yell for help – while the party were trying to be discrete.

Winner – Clarissa

4)      Best Death
a)      Gerald – He was being attacked by two flappy skin things. He went 
into close, and could not get out.
b)     Mordred – Was alone among undead and fought on to the bitter end.
c)      Gok – After being nearly drained by the artifact, he was hit by a 
TK rage/ That killed him.

Just for the record - given that my name appears twice in these notes, 
once so misspelled as to confuse who is being referred to - my name is 
Lieutenant Mordrin

Fight until the end to defend what is right
