Shenvallei: game notes… not me

Arothir: I wonder why I can’t locate them
Arothir: so, there any chance you chappies know where we left off then?
Arothir: The kitchen was it?
Shenvallei: sec

Arothir: where the fuck is it
Kiergath: for public note
Kiergath: if nick is within 10 feet of me, he has a +4 to saves against fear effects
Kiergath: (aura of courage – paladin 3. )
Arothir: Neat
Arothir: Okay
Arothir: I can’t write that down yet
Arothir: So you guys can continue action while I dig for this stuff
Kiergath: oh, neat..
Kiergath: I didn’t know power attack worked like that..
Kiergath: if you use it with a two handed weapon, or a one hander being used with two hands
Shenvallei: hang on fixing my desc
Kiergath: whatever you subtract from your attack bonus, you get twice that for + damage.
Arothir: Neat
Arothir: suppose that makes sense
Kiergath: well.. that settles that..
Kiergath: so much for needing to find a feat.
Shenvallei: k done
Shenvallei: Shen – current desc.: Shenvallei ambles about at a 5’5 height though his eye level is always changing due to him always looking about. His eyes seem to dart from place to place – but out of wonder and curiousness rather than paranoia.
Long auburn red hair in a ponytail that hangs down to his mid back. 2 braids that fall from each long pointed ear to just above each breast.

Simple white loose clothes adorn his slender frame with a brown leather vest/pantaloons/moccasins. A leather belt with a brass beltbuckle with the symbol of Corellon Lorenthian. A large stuffed backpack and 2 large beltpouches hang from his belt. A dagger is tucked behind the left beltpouch and a shortbow hangs on his left shoulder.

His voice is tenor-like and varies greatly in pitch as he speaks giving others the impression that he is exaggerating everything he says. However once most folk get to know Shen, they find him likeable and a bit comedic if at times too aloof for his own good.
Shenvallei: oops meant to send that to you
Arothir: ugh…fucking hell
Arothir: why cant I find it
Shenvallei: what is it titled?
Shenvallei: Ill search my trees
Arothir: No, you wouldn’t have it
Arothir: it was all my DM’
Arothir: s notes
Arothir: lol
Arothir: I mean
Arothir: I don’t really need them
Arothir: I just forgot some people’s names
Arothir: Like the guy who the note was written to
Shenvallei: Hmm
Arothir: All I remember is an L
Shenvallei: maybe check the free league board that you posted the transcript on
Kiergath: LUDWIG
Arothir: ty
Arothir: I knew that was a good idea
Kiergath: Lupizignatzov!
Arothir: Llaryn.
Kiergath: ...
Kiergath: I like mine better
Arothir: The note reads as follows: “Llaryn, I trust you will make all appropriate arrangements with regards to opening the portal. Make sure noone enters this place until all of the supplies have been loaded through the portal. Afterward, make sure to seal the portal, as we will have what we need to open it again from the inside when the time comes. Do not fail me in this, and you will be rewarded.”
Alusair: “Great. once they seal that portal, theres nothing we can do to get to them.”
Shenvallei: “May I see the note?”

Shenvallei: “Hmm ‘we will have what we need to open it again from the inside when the time comes’, perhaps we should destroy whatever that is so it cannot be re-opened.”
Alusair: “That would mean going back inside.”
Alusair: “Which I, for one, am more than willing to do.”
Alusair: “But last I knew, you were not.”
Shenvallei: “Yes! yes it would. And yes before I was not because I had no idea where we were. At least now I have an idea that wherever it was, its involved in some evil plot Harmonium plot.”
Alusair: “Very well.”
Alusair: “Shall we, then?”
Shenvallei: Have we searched every door here in the bar? I think we just searched the kitchen and the upstairs, was there another room?
Arothir: Indeed, there was another room
  • Shenvallei heads to the other room we havent searched yet. *
    Shenvallei: Is there a door here as well?
  • Alusair fidgets anxiously, waiting for Shen to get the exploration bug out of his system.She mutters under her breath something about wasting time looking around a pub when there are wrongs to right and evil beings to cut to little pieces. *
    Arothir: Indeed.
    Shenvallei: Whispers: “Patience, lets see whats here first, might give us more clues.”
    Alusair: ( Oh lord, screen cap that one.. Shen’s telling someone else to be patient. )
    Shenvallei: Ill listen at the door.
    Arothir: LOL
    Arothir: You listen at the door
    Arothir: Listen check!
    Alusair: ( Mister “LET ME TAKE ON SEVEN HARMONIUM!” )
    Shenvallei: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [3] = (3)
    Alusair: can I listen too?
    Arothir: You hear the sound of the sea.
    Arothir: if you’re there
    Alusair: ...
    Arothir: yes
    Arothir: :P
    Alusair: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [16] = (16)
    Alusair: plus..
    Alusair: things…
    Arothir: Alusair, you hear, oddly enough, nothing.
    Alusair: ”....”
    Alusair: “Nothing.”
    Alusair: Try the handle
  • Shenvallei braces himself so he doesnt get hit by a wave. *
    Arothir: The door is unlocks, and swings open easily.
    Arothir: Beyond, there is no water, only a dark room.
    Alusair: 60 foot darkvision.
    Arothir: What available light there is spills into this dark almost closet.
    Arothir: Revealing bottles racked in walls
    Alusair: alternately, you could make me cast Light on one of shen’s eyebrows
    Alusair: but he might object
    Alusair: :P
    Arothir: Well, probably
    Alusair: ...that would be awesome..
    Alusair: Cast Light on a blind man’s eyeballs…
    Alusair: so you could douse the light whenever you wanted by having him close his eyes
    Arothir: There is an open hatch leading into a basement.
    Arothir: LOL
    Arothir: That’s awesoem.
    Alusair: it would be like having a hooded lantern / spotlight all in one
    Alusair: :P
    Arothir: ...nevermind that
    Arothir: It would be an amazing morale thing
    Shenvallei: lol
    Arothir: especially if that man was a monk and had blind-fight
    Arothir: :P
    Alusair: LOL
    Arothir: Scare the piss out of ANYONE
    Alusair: just a bit
    Arothir: Like Seib in WAR
    Alusair: ”... Liquor cabinet?”
    Shenvallei: “Well since we are here…”
    Alusair: “We’ll collect on the way out.”
    Alusair: “Too fragile to carry around in a fight.”
  • Shenvallei starts rumaging through the wine bottles. *
    Alusair: “But feel free to set the good stuff aside so we don’t have to spend awhile doing it on the way out..”
  • Shenvallei grabs the most decorative looking bottle. *
    Arothir: You find the most decorative looking bottle there is.
    Arothir: Int check.
    Shenvallei: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [20] = (20)
    Alusair: lawzy
    Arothir: You notice this bottle, unlike the other bottles, upon being picked up, makes you feel warm, as though being bathed in sunlight. The label contains an image of a ship, cresting a wave, on what appears to be your home planet. A whiff from the neck of the bottle instantly makes you nostalgic for home, as it smells of the sea, which you doubtless have witnessed at some point on your homeworld.
    Arothir: Your feet seem to feel as though they’re buried in pleasantly warm sand.
  • Alusair sighs at Shen, who seems to be half stoned just from holding a wine bottle. *
    Shenvallei: “Oh what an interesting bottle! Ill have to pocked this now. Lets not forget a gift for…”
    Shenvallei: “Oh Al, whats our friends name at the safehouse?”
    Alusair: ”... Zero.”
    Shenvallei: “Zeeeeroooo… got it! Ok lets go!”
    Arothir: You go into the kitchen?
  • Shenvallei pockets the bottle and walks into the kitchen. *
    Alusair: Yep
    Arothir: Alright.,
    Arothir: Things are as you left it.
    Arothir: Suspended rat, neatly stacked shelf.
    Arothir: Unlit candle.
    Alusair: knock the stack back over
    Shenvallei: Light the candle and put cheese on the stove.
    Arothir: You do so
    Arothir: There is a flash of blue light around the portal
    Arothir: Doorway, rather
    Arothir: as the portal opens again.
    Alusair: “Right…”
  • Alusair unsheathes her sword and heads in. *
  • Shenvallei follows but covers his ears with his hands first. *
    Arothir: The screaming is muted for you, Shenvallei
    Arothir: Before you is still the seemingly endless tunnel of fiends and demons
    Arothir: With a somewhat narrow pathway leading between them.
  • Alusair would offer to cast Silence, but doesn’t think Shen would appreciate it. *
    Arothir: lol
    Arothir: You head further in?
    Alusair: Yep….
    Shenvallei: Im going to tell Luna to stay behind in the kitchen and hide in the cupboard but I give her orders not to eat the rat or cause trouble.
    Arothir: Minutes go by, as the angered screaming continues.
    Arothir: Right-o
    Arothir: Good plan
    Arothir: Cats and demons don’t mix.
    Alusair: unless they’re..
    Alusair: cat demons…
    Arothir: ...well, yes
    Alusair: ...
    Alusair: sorry.
    Arothir: but that’s an exception rather than the rule, now isnt it.
    Arothir: Okay
    Arothir: So,
    Arothir: Fifteen minutes of walking
    Arothir: You come to a junction
    Arothir: The path splits off to the left and right
    Shenvallei: Demons still in cages on both sides?
    Arothir: Yes.
    Arothir: The junction is merely a split in the cages
    Alusair: does it still go straight as well?
    Shenvallei: “What in the name of the Pie God is this place?”
    Arothir: Yes.
    Arothir: In fact, there is a door that’s visible at the end.
    Alusair: “If I didn’t think there was some sinister purpose behind it.. I’d say it was a little slice of justice.”
    Arothir: But the paths off to the side seem to end in a wall after three feet.
    Alusair: “Unfortunately…”
  • Alusair falls silent and continues forward. *
    Arothir: You head forward.
  • Shenvallei follows. *
    Arothir: Another 15 minutes sees you to within reach of the door.
    Arothir: An odd happening.
    Arothir: 5 minutes before you get to the door
    Arothir: There is an abundance of cages
    Arothir: but no apparent abundance of demons.
    Shenvallei: I draw my shortbow.
  • Alusair draws up short, murmers a short prayer and takes another look around. *
    Shenvallei: And I want to keep an eye out for anything unusual on the floor/ceiling like traps or glyphs.
    Arothir: Alright.
    Arothir: Spot check.
    Alusair: “
    points at one of the cages* Stay back.. its full of ‘em.. most aren’t though.”
    Shenvallei: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [2] = (2)
    Shenvallei: +6
    Arothir: You locate no traps or glyphs
    Alusair: “Shen?”
    Shenvallei: “Mmm?”
    Alusair: “You Primes see strange things sometimes..”
    Alusair: “Know anything that might appear as a cat.. be invisible.. and be evil to the core?”
    Shenvallei: “Ive heard of something called a hellcat. Its a demonic cat. Do you see something?”
    Alusair: ”...Aye.. a common tabby.”
    Alusair: “A hellcat that ain’t.”
  • Alusair points at an empty cage. *
    Shenvallei: “Where?”
    Alusair: ( :P )
    Alusair: “Ye could always ask it real nice-like if it’d be a good little basher and appear.”
  • Shenvallei looks at the empty cage, then back at Alusair, then back at the empty cage. “Oh I cant see invisible things.” *
    Alusair: “Bloody thing’s trying ter sod with my brain-box.”
    Shenvallei: “Cat creature make yourself seen to me!”
  • Alusair mutters something about hoping it doesn’t decide to try for Shen. *
    Arothir: Will save, Shen.
    Alusair: LOL
    Alusair: :P
    Shenvallei: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [15] = (15)
    Shenvallei: -2
    Arothir: Shenvallei, you see Luna, sitting in the cage, calmly bathing herself.
    Shenvallei: Am I sure it is Luna?
    Alusair: “Well? D’yer see it or not?”
    Shenvallei: Or does it just look like Luna?
    Arothir: Indeed you are.
    Arothir: It’s Luna, through and through.
    Shenvallei: “Luna? How did you get in there?”
    Alusair: “Good! You see i—-Luna? What in the sod?”
  • Alusair looks around *
    Alusair: “Luna ain’t here mate. You left her in the bar.”
    Arothir: In the back of your head, Shen, you hear Luna respond to you. “Oh, Some people came into the kitchen, and I was scared, so i ran in here after you and I got stuck in this cage.”
    Shenvallei: “Oh thats awful! Let me get you out of there, how do I open the cage?”
    Alusair: “Open the WHAT?!”
    Alusair: “Have you gone completely sodding BARMY?!”
    Arothir: “In the room down the hall, there is a lever. Simply go and pull it, and I will be able to join you.”
    Arothir: Will save, Shen.
  • Shenvallei looks at Alusair “Luna is stuck in there, she told me herself… waitaminute.” *
    Shenvallei: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [14] = (14)
    Shenvallei: -2
    Arothir: You get the distinct feeling that this is a bad idea, but you aren’t quite sure why.
    Alusair: “Thats nae Luna, mate. I don’t know what yer seein’, but whatever that fekkin’ thing is, it ain’t your familiar.”
    Shenvallei: “When did you learn how to talk telepathically Luna?”
    Arothir: ”...I have always been able to talk to you. Are you just now able to listen?”
    Shenvallei: “Oh thats wonderful, what a gift to be able to hear you Luna!”
  • Alusair facepalms. *
    Shenvallei: “Alusair did you see a lever around here?”
  • Alusair can only imagine the other side of the conversation, but she’s drawing some pretty fascinating conclusions – and none of them are good. *
    Alusair: “What? Lever?”
    Alusair: “Ain’t nae lever here.”
  • Shenvallei looks around for a lever. *
  • Alusair starts pondering the possibilities of what could possibly really be in the cage. *
    Arothir: The lever referenced would likely be behind the door at the end of the hall.
    Shenvallei: “Lets check that door Al.” I walk toward the door looking for traps/glyphs.
    Arothir: Spot check
    Shenvallei: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [11] = (11)
    Shenvallei: +6
    Alusair: “Oh by the … where’s he going now?”
  • Alusair follows Shen *
    Arothir: Its a trap!
    Arothir: no, just kidding
    Arothir: it’s a rock
    Arothir: on the floor
    Shenvallei: Does it look unusual?
    Arothir: Not so much, no
    Arothir: You make it to the door
    Shenvallei: Pick it up.
    Arothir: without incident
    Arothir: and with a rock in hand
    Arothir: apparently
    Shenvallei: I pocket the rock.
    Shenvallei: And listen at the door.
    Shenvallei: [1d20<!- Official Roll ->] => [3] = (3)
  • Alusair listens as well, because she’s trusting Shen’s sanity less and less. *
    Alusair: [1d20+5<!- Official Roll ->] => [11,5] = (16)
    Arothir: Shen, you hear nothing inside
    Shenvallei: Slowly reach for the door handle looking back at Al, “Ready?”
    Arothir: Alusair, you hear: ”...plans are nearing completion. Soon, not even the Lady will be able to stop us.”
    Alusair: “This.. this is going to hurt, I suspect.”
    Alusair: “Hit it, mate.”
    Shenvallei: Rip the door open with all my 9 strength and yell “AHA!”
    Arothir: You rip open the door
    Arothir: Which…is…
  • Alusair ....gawks at her companion, no doubt as much or more than the occupant(s) of the room. *
    Arothir: Amusing…
    Arothir: Because…
    Arothir: The door is locked…
    Arothir: And Shen just manages to jostle the lock a bit.
    Alusair: ..meaning we don’t have an open door.
    Alusair: or we do?
    Arothir: ...on the contrary.
    Alusair: ...
    Alusair: neat
    Arothir: The door opens
    Arothir: But not because shen pulls on it.
    Arothir: The door swings inward
    Alusair: does it drag Shen with it?
    Alusair: :P
    Arothir: and a man with a longsword stands, dumbfounded, at the wizard which came with the door.
    Alusair: ...
    Shenvallei: “AHA!”
    Alusair: ....
    Alusair: Do I have, say, surprise, if I choose to thrust through the doorway?
    Alusair: :P
    Arothir: Inside the room appears to be a clerks’ office, although it’s devoid of life, sans this man.
    Arothir: Yes, you do.
    Arothir: The man is unarmored, but armed
    Alusair: neat
    Alusair: unarmored.. dumbfounded…
    Alusair: k..
    Shenvallei: Does he look friendly?
    Arothir: He’s wearing a grey tabard over a green tunic, lashed with a belt, from which hang multiple metal sticks.
    Arothir: He looks…confused.
    Alusair: Does he look EVIL?
    Arothir: Are you detecting?
    Alusair: ..yeah.
    Shenvallei: “Hello good sir. My cat seems to be locked inside one of your cages. Can you help me?”
    Arothir: Actually, no
    Arothir: he’s not evil
    Alusair: ...
    Alusair: Fuck.
    Alusair: :P
  • Alusair keeps weapon lowered. *
    Arothir: ”...what the name of Glabreezu the Horned are you doing down here?”
    Arothir: “And what cat?”
    Alusair: ”...”
  • Alusair leans against the door frame and waits for Shen to explain. *
