Thread Canonized: A Reason to Come Back

Quote

SUMMARY: In the wake of an assassination attempt, Sebastian Heiliger lays seemingly dead on the streets of Lunaris. Finding himself in a kind of spirit realm, he tries to reenter his body to no avail. As he wishes that he could see his lover, Carina Gomez one more time, the spirit of the Hydra appears. Meanwhile, in Aurelium, Carina herself feels something wrong, and flies back to Lunaris. Upon arrival, she finds the Young Hydra guarding Sebastian's body, refusing to let anyone but her near. Back in the spirit realm, the Spirit shows the Governor that his body has been healed, and he goes back. He revives briefly before passing out, and being taken to the hospital.

Some time later, Sebastian awakens to find Carina by his side. The two of them discuss the events that have transpired, and realize that the love between the two of them has grown into something larger than they had initially thought. Sebastian resolves to stay in his city, while Carina insists on moving in with him so she can keep a better eye on him.

SHORT SUMMARY: In the wake of an assassination attempt, Sebastian Heiliger and Carina Gomez reevaluate their relationship to find it stronger than ever.

Thread Canonized: It's gettin' hot down here... also sweaty, and hairy...

Quote

Full Summary: Aveline wants to find an alternative source of electricity for the Mil Dot, and discusses it a little with Lithist, their new hire. On her way back from getting more solar panels as a temporary measure, a jungle pig drops through her truck's windhield, making her crash the truck. Aveline then has to travel through a huge fight between jungle pigs and zkriz'ka, highlighting just how much of a problem these pigs have become. Then she finally returns to the Mil Dot Lunaris (landmarked at this point by a Ponderosa pine), to find that the battle had raged there, and had simply moved east through the city.

Short Summary: A jungle pig causes Aveline to crash, and makes her see how much of a problem jungle pigs have become, especially in their battles with zkriz'ka.

Concequences: Lunaris, and by extension the whole Moss Forest is being terrorized by jungle pigs. The citizens won't just stand by and let it happen.

There is a Ponderosa pine growing in the Moss Forest. What does this mean? Who knows right now?

Opportunities: The Mil Dot Lunaris will soon be holding a massive jungle pig hunt massacre genocide management program.

No other species in Taen have been known to grow this large of a population so fast. Why these pigs?

Thread Canonized: What's Past is Present

Quote
Quote

Summary: Confronted by the strange and innovative concept called 'democracy', Téshuk is forced to try and win over the people of Totenborough so as to have their consent to rule. To this end, he meets with a minor political rival by the name of Braseg, a hotblooded dwarf that runs the most prominent market within the city, in an attempt to convince them to lend their support to his campaign.

After a quite public debate with Braseg, and learning what it is the people of the city truly desire - a safe and prosperous home, above all else - Téshuk unearths a vein of mythril running beneath the city. Between this and a snowballing build to his reputation, he wins the election to become Governor of Totenborough.

Minor Summary: Téshuk becomes Governor of Totenborough after the discovery of a new source of mythril, adding to the mines there.

Consequences and Opportunities:

 [C] Totenborough has a formal Governor in the form of Téshuk

[C] Totenborough gains a mythril mine, in addition to the iron and gold primarily found there.

[O] This addition to the city presents potential new trade opportunities, both to profit from and to exploit. Shipments will likely require protection, both from wildlife and from thieves.

[O] With the appointment of a proper Governor, one may now seek their approval and support for expeditions, studies, and other opportunities within the area of Totenborough.

 [O] With the new mine, the Gravekeepers Legion begins to equip itself with new armour and weapons. A good opportunity to test their mettle.

Thread Canonized: And Speaking of Souls (Artifact)

Quote

Minor Summary

With the aid of mercenary mages Enid Heks and Arthur Uskglass, Duchess Abigail Karradeen sets out into the wilds of Taen in search of the legendary Soul Speaker. After encountering traps, rogue wizards and pirate ambushes, they finally manage to track down the artifact and recover it. Abigail’s personal ambitions are heightened in light of this newfound power.

Summary

House Karradeen learns that Maximilian Karval, a young and rising pirate lord, has kidnapped several scholars who recently uncovered the location of the legendary Taen artifact known as the Soul Speaker. Hoping to stop Karval’s men from reaching the artifact, Duchess Karradeen organizes her own expedition, comprised primarily of her house’s merchant marines, but also guided by a pair of mercenary mages, Enid Heks and Arthur Uskglass.

The expedition makes its way through the jungle without incident, then reaches a forgotten mountain pass connecting the jungle with the desert beyond. Half-way through the pass, they come across an ancient forge, carved into a cave system within the mountainside itself. Here they are hindered by ancient traps, as well as a renegade wizard calling himself The Cursor, but ultimately they manage to escape the underworld tomb with vital information pertaining to their quest.

They then proceed into the desert, where they find an oasis not far from the pass’s exit. However, Karval’s pirates ambush them here, killing many marines and wounding Arthur. Luckily, the assault is repelled, and the pirates suffer far more significant losses. The expedition then moves on, eventually discovering a dig site where the pirates were trying to unearth an ancient obelisk said to contain the Soul Speaker. The brigands are easily chased-off and the Karradeens take control of the site, completing the excavation soon after.

The Soul Speaker is discovered in a secret compartment at the base of the obelisk and is taken by Abigail. Upon testing it, she observes its impressive powers, and though she puts it away. After paying the mages who had aided her and setting out on the return trip Gold Harbor, she begins to silently plan how she might use this artifact to further her house in the future.

Thread canonized: What's the difference between love and fun?

On 10/20/2019 at 6:20 AM, supernal said:

Summary

A series of seemingly unconnected crimes take place over the span of a few hours; arson, petty theft, bank robbery, and a string of indiscriminate murders of opportunity. Reports from the crimes describe behavior which is odd even by local standards and foments civil unrest. One of the bank robbers is stopped and detained.

Consequences

  1. A bar is burned down in the Banyan district
  2. An apothecary is robbed
  3. The Silverbrush Bank is robbed
  4. Several dozen citizens are killed by hydrogen cyanide gas; Adime has snatched additional hosts at the bar and the bank for redundancy's sake
  5. Civil unrest grows incrementally with concerns that the chaos is related to the Argentspire (the mountain transported from Yh'mi over 2 years ago)
  6. Local law enforcement gathers a slug from Gore for further research

Opportunities

  • Join the local police force
  • Exploit the chaos and commit your own crimes
  • Join Taen's R&D to learn from the slug sample taken at the scene of the crime with one of the bank robbers

Checkpoint canonization: What tangled webs

11 hours ago, supernal said:

This is a checkpoint summary meant to canonize events up to this point without impacting the ability of players to continue the story.

Summary

Ampelos Dali, recent graduate into the Master rank of the Transmutation Guild and increasingly accomplished businessman on behalf of the Dali estate, arranges to meet with two members of the family to continue expanding business operations. He meets them at Dali estate then uses faux-ton receivers to ferry the three of them to Casper to meet with the Casper Shipping Company and establish a corporate partnership.

Consequences and Opportunities

[C] - Dali and the CSC enter into a contract which establishes a luxury travel route for high class personnel traveling to and from Aspyn.

[C] - Ampelos creates a CSC subsidiary which will act as a private transportation company owned and managed by Dali but operating under the CSC corporate umbrella to make use of its resources; the first deal sees both parties splitting profits where the second sees a fee paid from Dali to CSC for autonomy.

[C] - Ampelos goes to Aspyn to meet with the local government and establishes a new deal which sees Dali building the infrastructure and providing the service for growing their tourist economy, funded in part by subsidies and grants to ease the burden of construction and stimulate the local economy. This will expand the Dali Vineyard and make Aspyn a luxury destination.

[O] - You can work for CSC as a transport specialist (captain, navigator, security, etc) or for Dali private luxury travel or for Dali vineyard

[O] - Every business deal (notably with CSC and with Aspyn) provides an opportunity for a supply chain attack to learn confidential information about these business deals. The information isn't enough to fully compromise any specific leg, but can be useful nonetheless
