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.

      A friend of mine asked me to paint his Karzoug for:
       


       
      So I have been going at it. While I have already done quite a bit, I still figured lets make it a WIP.
       
      Session 1
         
       
      Session 2
         
       
      Session 3
         
       
      I am not quite happy with a lot of details yet, but he is starting to smell like 'high level wizard'. :)

      Balazar, the gnome summoner (Reaper 89023) was fun to paint.  That mould line running down the side of his hat thing was not that visible when I painted him.  Oh well, another one done, yay!

      I've been on a painting tear since ReaperCon.  Here's one from last week. 
      Pathfinder's "Iron Gods" Adventure Path crosses over into science fiction, including robots and androids, such as the android priestess Meyanda.
      Wayne Reynolds painted the cover of the Adventure Path where Meyanda appears: click for link.
      Bobby Jackson sculpted the character.  I like what he did with this delicate sculpt.
       

       
      I decided to give her a sci-fi-styled base, not my usual rock/grass/leaf palette. 
      I started with a piece of plasticard shaped like square floor-tiles, gouged out some scratches, and added some debris (a robotic "piston" of two brass rods, a "cable" of brass wire, and a few chunks of rubble that I carved from the plasticard).
       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      I've been on a painting tear since ReaperCon.  Here's another, from last week. 
      Pathfinder's "Wrath of the Righteous" Adventure Path features some especially nasty villains, including Xanthir Vang, a wizard who used to be human but is now a colony of worms with a hive-mind (a "worm-that-walks"). 
      Wayne Reynolds painted the cover of the Adventure Path where Xanthir Vang appears: click for link.
      I sculpted the figure last year. This more active pose shows off his magical ability as a "blackfire adept".  Among my favorite parts of the figure are his wriggling worm fingers.
      The fire effect has a few rough-draft layers under this one -- darker, drabber, more purple, stronger green, etc.   Truly black/gray fire just wasn't interesting on the miniature.
       

       
      I sculpted a few worms on the stock figure, crawling out of the sleeves and through holes in the back, and I sculpted a few more on the base for this version. 
      Here's a close-up of the extra worms on the front.
       

       
      Enjoy,
      Derek

      I speed painted Aglanda while helping my son's girlfriend paint her first mini.
