While we are waiting for another volunteer to... volunteer, I'll show off by doing some kata type moves.

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?"

Speaking quietly, Morgrym says to the group "unless one of you would like the burden, I will be willing to accept it."

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

Taeral, still embarrassed over his tardiness just nods his acceptance of the offer.

"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. ;)

Morgrym takes one last look around the ale store "I guess it will have to be enough" 

 

I'm Ready!

      About this project
      They say there have been eight worlds before ours. Eight times the people of this Earth, over vast millennia, built their civilizations, reaching heights we cannot even fully imagine now. They spoke to the stars, reshaped the creatures of the world, and mastered form and essence. They built cities and machines that have since crumbled to dust, leaving only their barest remnants.
      This is the Ninth World. The people of the prior worlds are gone—scattered, disappeared, or transcended. But their works remain, in the places and devices that still contain some germ of their original function. Some call these magic, but the wise know that these are our legacy. They are our future. They are the...
      Set a billion years in our future, Numenera is a tabletop roleplaying game about exploration and discovery. The people of the Ninth World suffer through a dark age, an era of isolation and struggle in the shadow of the ancient wonders crafted by advanced civilizations now millennia gone. But discovery awaits for those brave enough to seek out the works of the prior worlds. Those who uncover and master the numenera can unlock the powers and abilities of the ancients, and bring new light to a struggling world.
      The original Numenera RPG was launched via a 2012 Kickstarter campaign that shattered every record (at the time) for tabletop RPGs. The corebook has seen four printings, and Numenera is enjoyed by tens of thousands of gamers in an active global community. We have published over 60 supplements and accessories, and released a terrific starter set for new players. The Ninth World has spawned a critically-acclaimed hit computer game, board games, an excellent short film, a line of novels, and other licensed items, and Numenera has been translated into many languages including French, Spanish, Italian, Korean, German, and Portuguese.
      Numenera is a game in which player characters explore the ruins of aeons past to gather amazing treasures and help build a new future for a world struggling in darkness. Since the launch of Numenera in 2013, we have delivered well on the first part, but we’ve always wanted to do a more thorough job exploring that second part. That desire has led us to Numenera 2 and this Kickstarter campaign.
      Through this Kickstarter we’re going to replace the existing corebook with two new corebooks. The first is called Numenera Discovery and the second Numenera Destiny.
      Numenera Discovery will be a book that covers familiar territory; it is basically a revision of the original Numenera corebook. Next summer, we will allow the original corebook to go out of print, and Numenera Discovery will take its place. In Numenera Discovery, you’ll get some revisions to make things clearer and more fun, and to increase the options available to players. Nanos, Jacks, and Glaives will get an overhaul. Many foci and some of the descriptors might see some reworking. You’ll have more options, clearer rules, and perhaps a bit of expansion to the regions of the Steadfast and the Beyond that are covered in the existing corebook.
       
      But Numenera Discovery is not a new edition. We will make virtually no changes to the way the game plays mechanically—and none of those changes affect the way NPCs, creatures, or items like cyphers or artifacts work. We also won’t be making changes to the setting. So if you already play Numenera, your bestiaries, adventures, card decks, character portfolios, and books like Into the Night, Technology Compendium, and Jade Colossus will not be affected by these changes. We will not issue any “second editions” of the existing supporting titles—and if you choose not to get Numenera Discovery, future Numenera supplements will work fine with your existing Numenera corebook. Your ongoing campaign will flow smoothly through the change in corebooks. You will even be able to mix existing characters with those from Numenera Discovery into your game. In fact, the game can be played with both the existing corebook and Numenera Discovery in use at the same game table!
      (One small exception: Numenera Character Options and Numenera Character Options 2 will remain compatible, but will become substantially less relevant following the improvements to characters in Numenera Discovery. We will retire those titles.)
      As excited as we are about Numenera Discovery, we may be even more excited about Numenera Destiny. This title will enable characters to truly become a part of the setting—to help shape the future of the Ninth World. The people of the Ninth World are locked in a medieval-like state, a world of struggle and danger and often suffering in the shadow of the prior worlds’ wonders. Numenera Destiny allows you to build adventures and campaigns in which players don’t just explore the wonders of the past—they utilize them to help lift the Ninth World out of darkness.
      You can make the world a better place. Help a community defend itself from abhumans or the iron wind. Create centers of learning or trade. Innovate, build, and protect. Manage an entire community and help it prosper and grow—or simply create a cool base or vehicle for your adventuring group. Numenera Destiny will allow you to take what you discover and make your mark on history as someone who elevated the Ninth World into the future.
      Adventuring—exploring the weird and wondrous remnants of the prior worlds—remains, of course, at the core of Numenera play. Numenera Destiny will give you new things to do with your discoveries, along with entirely new and epic ways to structure your campaigns. You’ll discover materials, power sources, and treasures that you can utilize in an entirely new, robust crafting and building system. And perhaps best of all, Numenera Destiny will offer three new character types and a number of new descriptors and foci geared toward this innovative style of play.

      Just getting back into D20 gaming, and I've recently became a big fan of the Reaper Mini line. Just wanted to show off some work I've done in the past month or so. All have been painted with acrylic and clear coated with rust-oleum matte clear enamel for some durability for table top gaming. I borrowed some of the paint schemes from internet finds and other i just winged from what colors I liked. Any ways here's the minis.
