Adventure Notes Session Two

Our session opens with the adventurers waking up in the morning. Vell, Wil, and Bam had gone back to their houses – Vell to the Artists' District, Wil to the Shadow District, and Bam to his family's shop.  Stripe and Gwen had found the Water Garden as a place to sleep over the night.  

The Water Garden is full of fountains and greenery, topiaries and trees.  Gwen slept in a pool within the water garden, floating as bears do.  The proprietor of the water garden's name is Damien, who is a wood elf with a top knot and deep green robes.  His eyes are a teal color.  He has been the proprietor of the Water Garden for a good bit of time, and is about in his middle ages.  When he comes to check on the garden, Gwen scares him, but he informs both he and String, who is sleeping in a tree, that they can register with the garden so that they know these people are staying in the garden rather than just camping out.  

Meanwhile, Wil, Vell, and Bam meet up at the adventurer's guild in the morning.  Wil asks his contacts whether they have seen a random bearfolk and tabaxi who have come into the city recently.  His contacts tell them to check the gardens – the water garden first.  They got kaf at the adventurer's guild, which is more bitter and strong than coffee, and comes in shot glasses.  Most people drink it as a shot.  Bam asks his criminal contacts if they have seen a half-elf man with auburn hair, bright blue eyes, and sharp teeth.  They do find out that there are a number of disguise shops in the city as well.  They warn the party to keep a low profile, as there is a lot of unrest since the prince's death.  They think there is a great amount of mystery around his death, and a lot of things were mishandled.  

They go to the Water Garden which is filled with beautiful fountains, trees, topiaries.  It is the lushest spot in the whole city.  The garden is about a half a mile across, so it is quite large.  Prettiest views, cleanest water, and there are many artists who come here to paint.  They come in to see the curator talking to Gwen and String, who is giving them an introduction to the city and telling them places to go.  He recommends the Tasty Bull Food Market for breakfast. 

Vell inquires once at the Tasty Bull Market when they are getting in this new pixie fruit.  Bam gets some sausage, the rest get some cheese and fruit, and the owner of the Tasty Bull tells them that there is a new fruit, called Pixie Fruit, that will be coming in from the Arbor District sometime soon.  However, the fruit is very expensive and will be extremely sought after, so the characters' chance of getting some will be slim.  He explains that they will be in next week -that the earth singers, the wood singers, haven't finished it yet.   Vell, however, offers to refurbish his sign if he will save her a fruit.  Bam picks up some fresh sausages – the best he's ever eaten. They find out quickly it's a fresh food market, but not a cooked food – they will need to go to an inn for that.  

Bam offers for their party to go to the Mage's Collegiate to follow any leads on the ink that Numee Numee used to write his novels.  As they make their way to the mage's collegiate, they are able to see horseless drawn carriages – instead of horses, the carriages are being drawn by aether.  They are definitely less reliable, but they are definitely faster.  

The mage's collegiate is made of glowing crystal spires, lit with light from the bottom so that they are illuminated- almost like a beacon.  There is a set of double doors that opens up there, and there are a number of people in robes milling about, doing various things. They are practicing magic – all natures and classes, but the main pathway to get to the collegiate is clear.  There are two guards at the entrance who stop the party and ask what their business is there.  Besides minor dealings with supplies, no one has any connections to the mage's collegiate.  The Collegiate is more a consulate really, who patrols and polices magic uses , with a select number of students being chosen to learn there.

The party tries to get into the Mage's Collegiate using charm, to no avail. Wil tries to trick them – also no luck. Then, they discover that the leader of the Collegiate herself is behind them – and that the easiest way to get in is just to ask politely.

Public Service Announcement

I just want to make something abundantly clear.  This game is a cooperative game, not an individual game.  yes, you each will have your own individual spotlights, and your own storylines to follow, but withholding information from the party without an extremely specific reason or an extremely good reason will not be tolerated.  I want to make that very clear. If you have questions let me know.

First Session Notes

Within the Mosht Empire, adventurers are regarded and sought after for doing things that other won't, or can't.  The Mosht Empire is completely walled off, separating each of the countries from each other by tall stone walls.  This offers segregation and security, leaving each country with both their own military and the empire's elite forces.  Our adventure begins at the Adventurer's Guild, wheore both those who live in Daesdemona and visitors both can come to visit and find work, or gather information.  

Bam, a gnome, sits at a table with a drink in his hand and a concoction strapped to his arm.  Vell, an elf, and Wil, a half-elf, sit at a table with him playing 5-dragon ante.  Vell smokes a cigarette from an herb called kheefa – a multi-colored smoke producing purple herb.  Gwin, a bearfolk, stands in the back, trying not to be noticed, and String, a tabaxi, sits at the bar.  

String sees next to her a halfling man wearing a golden band around his arm.  She asks, rather loudly, what it was for, and she is informed that it is to honor one of the dead princes, who has been dead for about a month.  She begins asking questions, about the nature of his death, and Flynn, a mover picture star, comes through the door and pulls her to the table with 5-dragon ante, so that they can keep more questions from being asked and from being overheard.  In the Mosht Empire, sometimes asking too many questions can get you killed.  To lighten the mood, a round of shots is ordered for everyone. 

What is delivered are cactusback shots – a cactus shot with cactus liquor, and another with a pink aether.  The proper way to take the shot is the aether, then the cactus.  It was discovered what happens when the shots are taken incorrectly, which makes one either hallucinate or feel like they are swallowing glass. 

Bam investigated the job board, and discovered that a writer, by the name of Numee Numee, was missing.  Vell knew the author from some tea times- he lives in the same neighborhood, the Artists' District.  It was discovered that Numee Numee had bought a new house there recently.  The person who had reported him missing was a halfling named Grixel – a scribe at the 1000 page book shop.  He delivered supplies to Numee Numee, and hadn't heard from him for 5 days.  

Numee Numee was a mystery author, one who used ink of illusion to write his books.  This illusion ink allowed the reader to almost feel like they were right in the mystery novel.  The ink is created in only one place, the mage state, and not much else is known about it, besides the fact that usually a magical quill is used to write as well.  One of his most recent works, and one of the most well known, is the novel the Hell Hound of Dragon Palace.  

The characters discover that there was a delivery of furniture to Numee Numee's new house the day he disappeared from a shop called Aetherflow magical items.  It was signed for by Numee Numee, but when they went to the shop to talk to Sherlitan Lorekeeper, the owner, it was discovered it wasn't a kobold, which Numee Numee is, that signed for it.  It was a half elf with brown hair, bright blue eyes, and sharpened teeth.  Together, they go back to Numee Numee's house and lift the rug, which they found was magical, and found a kobold tooth.  They also discovered that there were pages taken out of the book that Numee Numee was recently writing.  Things certainly aren't what they seem.
