Crypt of the Everflame

Recommended Posts

Taeral does his best to make his way to the front being unnoticed. But between his half stowed gear and the fact everyone is waiting on his arrival, his efforts are in vain. He says nothing, the heat can be felt from his blushing face.

Mayor Uptal scans the crowd dramatically. His gaze settles on the four adventurers...


"Ah, good! That is all of you. Now, who will have the honor of carrying the ceremonial lantern to the Crypt and back?"

Khim looks between the other 3 then looks back to Morgrym. "Maybe Sareanrae's voice can bring back the light?"

"I Morgrym will take up the lantern and with the help of my companions, we will secure the light of ever flame and return it to Te town"

Mayor Uptal hands Morgrym the Lantern.

"Bring back the fire back to Kassen!"


He then hands you each a backpack containing 5 days of trail rations, a small tent, a winter blanket, a full waterskin, and a piece of The Trail Map that leads from Kassen to the Crypt of the Everflame.  A cart is wheeled up, and you are asked to distribute the following items amongst yourselves:
50 feet of hempen rope, a box of tinder, three tindertwigs, a labeled potion of Cure Light Wounds, three torches, a grappling hook, and a small bottle of the local brandy.


Mayor Uptal addresses the crowd:
"I present to you the brave heroes that will follow in Kassen's footsteps to retrieve the Everflame!  Some of them may not return, but I say to you that their sacrifice shall not be forgotten.  Go, brave heroes, and do not return until you have the eternal fire."

With that, the mayor points to the south, the direction of Kassen's tomb.  The townsfolk begin waving goodbye with cold, solemn looks on most of their faces.


OOC: Let me know if there is anything else you want to do before you leave.

Khim looks all the way up to Taeral's face, bows and says "I welcome you as the Arctic fox welcomes the snow"

Ooc: a small barrel of ale to celebrate would not be amiss... :)


Aloud: "we will return with the everflame!"


To the party: "Take what you can, I will shoulder the remainder".



Failing a cask of ale showing up in the Wagon, a stop for a pint wouldn't go amiss

Oh, and while we're packing I discreetly throw a detect magic on the lamp, more out of curiosity than anything else. Not everyday you get to fondle a town artifact...


So to follow the rules in the gathering I have a 12 and a 15

Khim turns to his fellow neophytes wondering if there is a time limit. The mayor mentioned none, but the fact that the trip to the Crypt should take 2 days, return trip 2 days, and there is only 5 days of rations suggests that they think that you can breeze through this adventure in a day.


OOC let me know if Taeral wants to try to live off the wild.


Morgrym does his best to polish up the lantern, and seems to say a prayer over the tarnished old silver lantern.


OOC It doesn't radiate any magic.


Morgrym stops for a gallon cask of ale on the way out of town. He plans to celebrate with his new comrades at some point during the adventure, and isn't sure brandy is this group's type of libation.


OOC two SP, "Mark it Off!" Is my old DM's saying when buying stuff or using consumables/ammunition. ;)

got it and marked it off. :)  I also note that we left nothing behind in the wagon.  anything the others didn't pick up Morgrym did. 


OOC:  Dwarven cleric aka: party packmule and tank.

      I haven't seen this posted anywhere else on the boards and did not find anything by searching, but RealmSmith has posted an interview from GAMA on YouTube with Ron and Ed. If this has already been posted, please feel free to nuke this post with extreme prejudice. As YouTube is a commercial site, no link but searching RealmSmith and Reaper will get you there.

      It's been a while, so time to start up a group of gamers again.
      I will be starting a Game Session ... once a month for 4, 6 or more hours at a session starting the week of my birth ... March's fourth week somewhere between the 19th and the 25th.  So this is an open invitation to any within driving range of Seneca Falls/Waterloo, NY area who are interested in participating in a month-to-month campaign. 

      This will be a Roleplaying Game with emphasis on the story and roleplaying. Naturally there will be some fighting, adventuring, exploring, thieving, and the like depending on the system chosen. I have two systems that I would like to run .. the first is one I have been sitting on for sometime and features a much more reasonable method of gaming than any system I've played and the second I have just acquired that is also a new style of system for me.

      Regardless of your rolls, the story moves forward ... it just might be more complicated than it was a moment before. Fantasy setting with D&D like characters.

      Based on the comic/graphic novels of the same name. You are mice. Yup, standard size, like in the cover image of the book. But you are one of the Mouse Guard and sworn to protect Lockhaven and the Mouse Territories. The game uses a success dice (d6) system from Burning Wheel.
      So, if you are interested in joining this gaming adventure, reply or message me to get an invite to the Facebook Group.

The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice.

      I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I.
      I tried to give them fur texture.  The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand.
      The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel.
      I spent WAY too much time painting these...
      Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter.  They’re rats.  A lot of them.
