  1. With my regular group we're playing a campaign I'm working on myself. Thought I'd try to make their progress a story of sorts for you to enjoy, or not if you do not like my storytelling, story overall, setting or whatever may irk you with me. So, I'm going to start off with the land, location and the characters. Then after that I'll jump to what they've been up to. Story: The campaign takes place in Gordrion, a large land recently acquired by the Cirefaleans. It is a resource rich land both in lumber and metals, to a large degree untouched. The climate is cold. Short wet summers and longer cold winters. A large portion of the population consist of guest workers, a hired workforce as well as those forced to work, with the intent of making it big, or die trying. Not many cities have been built up, and villages around the land is mostly tent villages. The point of interest at this point is a city called Ashahammal, translates to Red Sand, or alternatively Red Beach. Both correct due to the city being built on a red sand beach at a river. Characters: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Den'al is a nature close Kamorian of the White Deer Totem, tall, fast and vigilant. Always curious of his surroundings but catious enough to not make too many problems for himself. Spent his early life as a pathfinder in the wilderness, and continues to do so now as well. He has a trophy from a monster he battled, and got figuratively stabbed in the back by a close friend, also got a natural talent for navigating in caves and tunnels. He favours a short bow and an axe which he isn't all to profficient with, he never leaves them aside unless forced to. Coming from a treasure hunt earlier with another character, he joined Snowball in his travels, looking for adventure ending up in Ashahammal with Snowball. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Snowball is a male Missel looking to make a name for himself. Despite being a gambler, he has an uncanny ability to trust anyone no matter the circumstances. Being an entertainer he has seen and heard quite a lot, as well as learned a thing or two. Learned how words can solve most situations and used that silver tongue to stop a mutiny whilr accompaniyng an army. He has a shortsword hidden in a staff and is quite well versed in lockpicking, his small size isn't why you won't hit him either as he'll dodge your blows with ease. Family near Ashahammal is in trouble and Snowball was not one to say no, just had to go on a treasure hunt first. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thyr is a Kragg Barbarian, a large man with strength and endurance, perhaps because he's not clever enough to realise that some things are too heavy to lift, so he does it anyway, and some things hurt or tire the body, but he does not register it. Being a farmer earlier has tought him many things about cooking and carpentary, and the warrior blood of his people make him a fearsome adversary. Boasting an heirloom sword, a Kraggsword, almost as long as he is, it's a person you do not want to cross. Tired of his old life, Thyr wanted to see something else and decided to go on an adventure. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Lazius is a Jargian Male from one of the smaller outlying provinces of Jargien. A turbulent early life of a mother imprisoned due to rebel activities, an older sister being a corrupt judge and giving himself up in order to free his mother. He quickly discovered he has an affinity for fire, it won't burn him as bad as others and any problem solved with fire makes him feel a little better. A knowledgeable man due to being in service of an elder as a "hostage". After finally becoming free, he got a job on a trading company, his task is to check the bought cargo at Ashahammal, unfortunately the entire ship's crew went ill so he has to do it alone. _______________________________________________________________________________________________ The sound of the thundering hooves and the sled broke the cold silence covering the frozen river. The driver, a grizzled and scarred Manrakh Tirak, slapped with the reins to get the two white elks move faster. In the distance he could see tiny flickering lights from Ashahammal, their destination. The two mighty animals dragging his sled let out big clouds of mist as they breathed heavily from the workout, even their bodies seemed to be smoking from the workout. The Tirak could feel more and more ice forming on his face from the mist emitted from his white elks. It was getting colder, it was getting darker, not normal for this season, far from normal. As the animals started breathing faster, the sled picked up speed. In a low grumbling voice he announced to the travellers in the sled to prepare as they were soon at Ashahammal. A few of them looked up at the clear night sky, as if to familiarise themselves with the constellations, or just to marvel at the beauty one last time before it was time to get off. Others gripped their luggage tighter, or checked if they had all of it still in the sled. A few moments later they felt the sled slowing down and going up on a steep hill, they had arrived to the harbour and were moving on an incline meant for boats to be put in the water, or pull them out. Lazius could make out silhouettes of larger ships stuck in the ice, "Going to be difficult getting the cargo out, at least all at once", he thought to himself. Suddenly a small grin danced across his face, "Fire melts ice" popped up in his head. He however seemed to realise he'd need a lot of fuel for the fire to get a ship out to open waters. Den'al hung his head outside of the sled to see better where they were going, and what they passed. A little disappointed he sat back down, "Just large buildings" he mumbled to Snowball, the little missel just shrugged and replied "Well, this whole thing has been quite boring so far, not much to expect, although Thyr is good company". Thyr was, he was out travelling to new locations, and had found a missel on the way, kraggs had a special bond to missels, a protective bond. You wouldn't want to do something bad towards a missel with a kragg nearby, as a kragg is quite close to the opposite of what a missel is. As the sled came to a halt they found themselves outside one of the larger buildings. The tirak jumped off and started removing the two white elks from the sled. The animals were slightly larger than a regular elk, had white fur, horns similar to that of a ram, except small extrutions pertruding backwards from the horns as well. The nose bridge had a large buldge going from the root of the nose to the forehead, making the animal look like it had taken one too many blows to the nose bridge. The travellers jumped off the sled and looked around, it was really dark. A small trim of light escaped the large building they stood infront off. The tirak driver seemed to be on his way there, making motions for the travellers to join him, so they did. He effortlesly pulled the doors open despite their massive size, revealing a massive warehouse repurposed as a sort of stable. Hay covered the floor, temporary fences put up in order to segregate the different animals and keep them in place, for the cold they had placed several heaters. A cirefalean teenager had been tasked with keeping the heater fires going. He greeted the tirak and went to open up a fence for the elks. Lazius thought the elks could easily climb over the small temporary fence at any time, but they were probably trained to know better. After getting the elks in place the teenager started speaking in an almost panicing voice. "There's not much left, I don't know why there hasn't been anyone who refilled the firewood, or why no one has been here to check." The cirefalean started. Den'al, Thyr and Snowball looked like question marks, the boy was certainly in distress based on the voice but they did not understand the Falean language. Only Lazius understood. "I'm not in a good enough condition to go gathering fire wood" the old Tirak gruffed back. "Perhaps they are up to the task? Or whoever understands you" he added as he made his way out of the warehouse / stable. The boy looked desperately hopeful at the remaining four, out of which only Lazius came forward, the others started making themselves comfortable, to the best of their abilities, in the hay. "I can help you out, just give me the tools and some light, and I'll be back in a moment", the boy looked at Lazius with pure joy, and hastily scrambled together the necessary equipment needed to get some firewood. "We only need enough for tonight, there's usually a re-supply during the day when the workers are awake, just give back my lamp when you're done". With a fresh description in hand on how to get out of the city, Lazius headed out, first obstacle was a large harbor gate, with guards. The gate was quite large, and a single guard stood infront of it. "Halt, what is your business" the guard said in a stern voice, recognising the new face in the harbor, eyeing Lazius from feet to head and back to feet. "Greetings, I'm fetching some firewood for the warehouse made into a stable, for some reason it's run low." Laziud replied in a calm manner, making a small notion to show the equipment he had borrowed. Will continue and add more
