Alae Ignigena Noctis: The Rise of Neban

Recommended Posts

With the battle over, his shoulders slumped and he leaned heavily on his stick. "Well, that was, at a word, exciting. I could live without such excitement in the future. At least not unplanned." After catching his breath a moment he turns to Thorgrimm. "if you do not object to a bit of magic cast upon you, I can get you cleaned off in short order."

"He's harmless currently."  Sariel lifts the arm of the unconscious cleric and lets it drop limply.  "Would that I could just end his vile existence, but unfortunately, all life is sacred, even one as corrupt as his.  Unless we can consecrate the body, executing him would simply mean another unliving soldier for the Emperor and their fiendish patron.  Let the city elders try him for his crimes.  Perhaps he will provide some useful information to their forces."

 

Sariel sorts through the priest's possessions and lays them out on the ground for the group to see.

 

"Some useful items here, but unfortunately, nothing that provides any information that may aid us."

"where we elsewhere, I would say burn them, but what was said of this forest, I am not sure about harvesting the wood it would take..."

Ooc our countries are at war and clerics summon demons and undead... Unless we imprison him, keeping him alive he will just run amok elsewhere in the country side?

 

How far are we away from the city?

You are about 13 days away from the city and only a day from the forest. Ciron likely recognizes the spot as on a border between the Wolf and Bear clans. If you wanted you could drag him to whatever is in the forest since it seems to resent the undead to judge.

At that, He began casting a simple cantrip,(prestidigitation) and set it to giving a thorough cleaning of skin, hair and clothes, which when done on Thorgrimm, he would set on himself, and anyone else whom might ask it

"Since the forest and its dwellers here revile the unliving, we should bring the cleric to them and let them dispense with their justice.  This is their lands.  We need to separate him from his holy symbol, bind his hands and gag him so that if he is able to connect to his fiendish patron, he will be unable to wield her fell gifts."

" I believe that Sariel has the better idea. Taking him back to the city would take up too much time. We aren't too far away from the woods that our goal; we should press on. We're also near the border of the Wolf and Bear clan, perhaps if we run into any of the clansmen, we could turn him over to them for justice. Bindings can loosen, however.; we ought to break his fingers. Doing it now while he's unconscious would be a mercy he probably doesn't deserve."

 

Is there anything about the man, or his clothing and possessions that remind Ciron of his imprisonment? Also, does the ivory bowl look like something that may have stolen from the Wolf clan?

Perhaps. It might be the bowl your mother brought on the negotiations to buy your freedom as is custom in the northern lands. It would be habit to have filled ti with some valuables worthy of paying for the freeing of family. Most clans accept it if they are holding slaves that belong to other clans.

 

On the other hand it could mean he swiped it from someone else who was attempting to follow protocol for freeing loved ones from another clan

"I am, for reasons you might guess at, opposed to the idea of breaking fingers.There are other ways we can handle preventing him from casting, I'm sure. Splitting him from his cursed symbol, keeping him bound, and making sure there is always someone keeping an eye on him should do. More than that, I am a little reluctant to approach whatever can be found within this forest, showing any sign of willful cruelty, lest we be judged also"

Sariel nods in agreement.  "Separating him from his holy piece will sadly not prevent him from communing with his patron, it is merely a focus.  But I agree he should not be allowed to carry it.  As much as the sentiment sounds satisfying, I do not feel comfortable so cruelly disabling him, even if he would not hesitate to do the same to us.  We would prove we are no worse than he if we break his fingers.  Binding, gagging, and blindfolding him should suffice along with an armed guard at all times.  If he does make an attempt to attack us, or summons more fell beasts to his side, he will no longer be a prisoner, but an enemy combatant, and we are no longer honor bound to spare his life."

"think nothing of it. I am by no means a powerful sorcerer, but I can, and will use what I can do to assist my companions and those about me."

      Pathfinder Red Dragon #60028 is a hefty beastie and I definitely did not paint him red. Instead I tried a rainbow piece for Pride 2020 (finished 8/1/2020). Also my first painted model posted here. Pardon my photography skills. I used cut up Caryatid column #77378 for a bit of terrain on the base. My biggest metal model to date.

      I recently played and really enjoyed Pathfinder: Kingmaker (PC not tabletop), and I've had the urge to paint up some Pathfinder miniatures.  This guy is the Stag Lord (SKU 60073), I figured he would be quite appropriate as the first miniature painted up to be photographed on the ruined keep scenic backdrop I built recently.  I really enjoyed painting this guy (I am weird and enjoy painting skin tones far too much, bare chested models are always a treat).  My only regret is gluing his helmet on before painting his face, those big teeth made it really hard to get a brush inside the helmet at an angle that wasn't awkward, after a massive struggle I gave up trying to dot the eyes.

      Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm on a bit of a goblin streak. Those pyros were fun, but now it's the Pathfinder Goblin Warriors!
       
      As I did previously, I took a picture of them out in the backyard, just to see how they'd look in as realistic of an environment as it's gonna get, another in my little "Mini pictures area" (Spoiler: It's literally just my desk with a piece of white paper behind it. Sorry to ruin the magic! ), and lastly one of my favorite goblin. Any constructive criticism is welcome!
       
      Sidenote: I'm still not confident enough to try out eyes. I'll get to that eventually.

      The Cleric in my D&D group leveled up and acquired the Spiritual Guardian skill. He needed a model to represent his Guardian. Honaire looks so cool, but he didn't have a shield. I found one in my bits box, and painted the symbol of his chosen Deity, Chauntea. I loved painting this because the simple palette left more room to just relax and enjoy the work.
