"Torag's beard," Stedey says, readjusting his grip on the coffin. "What in the world was that all about? The professor seemed like a really nice man when I met him."

Andari answers Stedey's question; "There are many superstitious people in this land.  Many misfortunes and calamities have befallen them, and they seek something or someone to blame.  This I know personally.  It is best that we bury the Professor and then be on our way."

Kendra thanks you profusely for talking the thugs out of the fight. One of the attendees steps forward. He introduces himself as Councilman Hearthmount, and apologizes, expressing shock and outrage that those farm hands "of such low character" would act so brazenly.

 

You finish carrying the heavy coffin to the burial site Kendra purchased for her father, where you meet the Ravengro cleric, Father Grimburrow. He gives a short sermon as the grave diggers lower the coffin into the grave. He invites Kendra to speak. She fights back the tears long enough to thank everyone once again for coming. She recounts a few of her father's more courageous and selfless stories. She asks the PCs to say a few words about how her father was a part of their lives.

 

(OOC this is where you can give the background story of how you knew Prof Lorrimor. You can be matter of fact, or as showy as you like (diplomacy or Perform)).

"The Professor came to me after a time of personal tragedy.  He was initially interested in confirming the story that he had heard concerning me, but he took an interest in me, and helped deal with some of personal demons.  If not for him, I would not be the man I am today.  May Desna light and ease his way on this, his final journey."

 

Diplomacy: 19+2=21

 

(OOC: what faith is Father Grimburrow?)

"In a time of confusion and darkness, The professor picked me out of my pit of bespare and made me see the light, he was a true friend in my darkest hour and has ment the world, to me. May he find peace in the after life." Zak finishes in tears.

Nisha smiled slightly "I met him when he needed more otherworldly assistance and knowledge on my particular craft. I appreciated his interest and his concern in me. I also did not mind helping him with the goodwill my profession brought. A truly kind man who was able to see past the surface and to who a person was at their core."

 

Eran waves his claws and seems to chitter something as well "He also made a good friend of Eran for treats given and once keeping him from becoming a meal, for which I am very grateful as well.

"Gee, I feel kind of bad," Stedey says. He shuffles his feet and scratches at the scraggly beard he's just started trying to grow. "I didn't know the professor as well as everybody else. I ran across him cornered by some goblins one day and helped him get loose from them. He was real nice, and he thanked me, and we talked awhile--and, I mean, he even remembered me! He was a nice man, and I see he had a lot of friends, and I'm glad to've known him just a little bit."

"I first met the good professor a good number of years ago. I was travelling with a small group that was on it's way to take part in a small investigation of a ruined settlement. We where passing through Tamran in Nirmathas.  At a time when the Professor was there as well gathering research materials. Had we known this at the time, there is a very good chance we would have sought him out during our short stay. However, fate, or perhaps higher powers, worked to bring us together. It was not long in the city before one of our group discovered that some of Razmir's false priests where there as well, and we quickly took to making certain we knew where they where, and in keeping away from them. For Kyonin and Razmiran's relation is the sort where if care was not taken, violence would be the result. It was while keeping tabs on a pair of them that I learned of the Professor, for they where taking an interest in him as well. Intent on using his reputation to advance the cause of their false god. They cornered him in a dark alley, and began with promises, but soon fell into threats. When one said that their god did not need him alive to make use of him, I knew it was time I took action of my own. So, I laughed, and called out that he was no god. One of them turned on me, and sought to cast a spell. But while clerics might wear armor and still draw upon the divine magics, wizards playing that roll do not, and it is difficult to cast a spell with a dagger sticking out of you. I was surprised at how well the Professor was able to tend to himself, and it was not long before we two fled that alley and sought refuge with my company.

 

Some few years ago, I ran into him again, and he was most happy to see me, and spoke again and again of how glad he was that I showed up then. Since that time, I had written him a few times to share interesting discoveries i was privy to, and he shared some of his knowledge with me. I was saddened to learn of his passing, but honored beyond words to be asked to be here"

Grimburrow is a Cleric of Pharasma.

 

Andari's speech was particularly well received. It moved some to tears. It made others smile and hug their loved ones. He earned a few pats on the back from complete strangers...

After about thirty minutes of hugs, tears, and good byes, you are all starting to feel a little awkward when Kendra comes up to you and addresses you.

 

"Please, let's return to my fa-...my house for a few drinks. There is the matter of the reading of the will, and he had indicated it would be important for you all to attend."

Zak nodds somberly and follows the rest of the party toward the rear. Listening and keeping watch for any sign of renewed aggression from the townfolk with his hand on his alchemy kit.

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.

With stretch goals, we'll be adding new nautical class options like aquatic archetypes, feats, and spells, more monsters, and even more surprises as we collect stretch goals along the way, where you get to help decide what goes in the final book! With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead, followed by Chaos and Reptilians.
      I already have my Lost World Project which tells a tale of Conquistadores, Reptilians, Dinosaurs, Undead and a lot more.
      However those Undead are the Egyptian Style and Pirate/Jungle style.
       
      This thread will be filled with my beloved Gothic Undead, Demons, Monsters and all things that go bump in the night.
      In my Lost World Project I tell an ongoing story, here I will post about all other dark things without coherency.
      There might be snippets of loose stories to accompany a mini or not...
       
      I hope you guys and gals and creatures will like it.
       
      Let's kick off with the critters I painted a while ago to get a feel of what is coming.
       
      Enjoy! ( or not)
       
      Bats and a Murder of Crows
       
      EDIT: I will include some Bones and minis. The bulk will be metal and I want to give this an oldschool vibe.
      Preferred minis will be, Reaper, Grenadier, Ral Partha, Rafm, Metal Magic, Otherworld and Early Citadel.
      The Asian Undead will be from Zenith since I backed the Kensei Undead Samurai KS and will get their own thread.

      This is Dracula from Bad Squiddo Games' "My Last Sunrise" collection, an assortment of vampires, vampire hunters, and a few auxiliaries which was released in a very brief Kickstarter last summer.
       
      Annie, the Dice Bag Lady, runs fun Kickstarters. The three vampire brides I painted last month are from the same set.
       
      I don't have a WIP for him. Questions and comments appreciated.
