Week 1 – Kingdom Turn (continued)
Last session Lily tried to kill Alexi while under magical influences. This week, we need to see about chasing down Girgori (potentially an Orator Bard). We had gotten to the inn and he had left recently.
- Chase Sequence
- Chasing Shadows – Spymaster, K – Local, Sense Motive, Perception
- Where there is smoke, there is fire – Ruler, Warden, Diplomacy, Initimidate, Heal, Handle Animal
- Over the River, and through the woods – Marshall, Magister, Survival, Climb, Swim, Ride
- Will this be the one that got away? – Kn- Geography, Sense Motive, K – Nobility, Spymaster
We are able to encircle Girgori before he boards a fishing vessel. He is taken into custodyand treated as a enemy spell caster (bound, gagged, blindfolded, stripped of possessions).
Alexi, Gilain, Leanna, and Nisha are in the interrogation room while Alexi does the interrogating.
Oewyn and Kaiden are outside during the interrogation.
Bound – gag removed – blindfold removed – stripped of posessions
Who is he working for?
Barking up the wrong tree. Not able to answer that. He was hired by an anonymous source and paid. Money was good. Provides description of person – dark haired human male – early 30’s – probably using a disguise spell. When and where did he met? Down in Mivon. About 18 months ago (about a year into the kingdom) – about that time Mivon trade envoy came to town.
What was he hired to do?
Hired to talk to people. Listen to their problems – let people vent. He didn’t suggest anything they wouldn’t inclined to do. Occasionally used his magical talents to encourage them in things they were inclined to do. Not want to go with violence.
What about inciting Lilly to kill Alexi?
He felt his life was in danger from us. Was not ordered to do that.
What about fire (during chase sequence)?
Did cause it to come about while trying to escape.
(He’s jumpy and a bit of a yellow belly)
Kobolds and Gnomes in the riot
He was open to renew after 3 years.
(Gilain has Kaiden step into the room to check if he detects as Evil – he does not)
Any other provocateurs to his knowledge?
He was operating a lone he says.
How much was he paid?
100 gp a month (3600 gp)
Is there more stuff happening?
While Zach wasn’t in the room.
Nisha asked: Does he know the accent of the person he talked to
River Kingdoms oriented
He is scared of the person that hired him more than us tied up and bound in front of us.

Week 1 – Kingdom Turn
Contingent of Elves arrive at midnight one night. We set them up in an Inn.
The Elven Contingent is an Honor Guard (Elite) for Highness Caleb Northwood, 311th in line for the throne.
Parven is the name of the lead Elven Guard.
The next morning the party meets with him. He is the elf we rescued during the Troll War.
He has gifts to grant us for his rescue.
During a public presentation the next day, he gives the following:
- 6 x Cloak of Elvenkind and Resistance +1
Gilain is dealing with a guy that got upset at being ousted from Inn last night. He is in Jail over night – seems a month ago he came here and gave a package to a guard for the Baron and was supposed to see the baron the next day.
He identified Guard Rufus. Was misplaced during an urgent event (Grigori’s chase) and forgotten about. Gilain tracks down the package. Wolverine Pelt wrapped around something – Red Arrow with 7 Eagle Feathers. It is from the Urghar tribes
His name is Trindon Mosley.
Symbol of great danger and great reward. Rarely granted to outsiders.
This is behalf of the Urghar Village of Gloam .
We will go to visit them in a few days.
We complete Kingdom turn research roles
We head out to visit with the Urghar of the Gloam Village. We bring with us samplings of our trade goods. We’ll take about 4 days to get there.
Reminders: This Urghar tribe follows a Fae “god”.
We enter into Hex 1521.
We come to Ansit Ford.
- 1 x Blue Serpentine Creature (Vunith)
- 1 x Owl Bear
We track the Owl Bar to a cave. We recover some loot off a well chewed corpse. On our way out of the cave, we find something in the mud – large piece of bone – scroll tube.
We continue on wards. There are scratch patterns in tree trunks (bear territory).
Oewyn notes dark clouds to the east. Could be rain or snow.
Tildon thinks we could get to Gloam later tomorrow – barring any weather complications.
We look to end our travel day an hour early to find a good camping spot.
Overnight a severe storm hits that is icey and snowy. We press on in the severe storm.
About a foot of snow accumulates over the day. We travel through the snow for 6 hours. Then lumbering out the snow is a grizzly bear.
- 1 x Grizzly Bear – We out range it and keep going
We continue on and Oewyn spots a boot with a foot in it on the ground. He spots a trail in the snow up the slope.
We’ll continue this event next session
