Player Summary

Session Recorder by Mike

We ended the cutscene with Liam storming out of the library. Pissed. He wants to go watch clouds. He was so upset that he ended up in this room, which is new.

Yon and Benley get back to the manor. Gabrielle, Felix, and Harold all return as well.

Everybody ends up in a room similar to the Gryffindor common room. The furniture is scattered not just around the room but in different levels around the room. Gabrielle tries to jump up to the high furniture, Yon stands and takes in the whole scenery of the room. Felix and Harold climb the plush furniture and try jumping up and down. FIRST TO THE TOP WINS!

Benley is standing scratching his head in silence.

Liam is perplexed. Gabrielle invites liam to the top of the room, but he goes to a plushy chair. Felix tells Gabrielle to speak slower, and she slows her words patronizingly. Liam shouts “silence!” but doesn’t waste the spellpoints to cast anything on her. Yon facepalms.

Nobody knows why they’re here, but harold is the first to mention anything. There are pocket pies on a table nearby, Gabrielle leaps onto a cushy chair near the table, and bounces off landing nearby. The eternal teenagers eat as well as they can. Felix continues to climb as high as he can. The higher he goes, the higher the roof gets, subtly, with more furnature near it. Then, mystically, he lowers along with the furnature, so the roof is really the same height, but Felix only thinks the roof gets higher. Yon watches this and wonders to himself “Good Tyr what have I gotten myself into.” After a while Felix pulls out a book and starts reading. Gabrielle asks about what happened at the Garrison with Yon, and Yon explains. There are doors in and out of here, and Yon figures to go in one specifically going to find Merrick. The study with the fish that are swimming in midair. A large shark swims by him. Merrick is sitting with a pipe half in his mouth reading a book. Yon requests a word, and Harold walks in saying “Hey whiskers” Merrick respons “Flabberghast.” Yon says “Pardon me?” MErrick says “you said you wanted a word. that’s a word.” Yon asks about the wolf which “fled” his presence. Merrick doesn’t know anything about it. On his way out, a fish goes to nibble on Yon, trying to ‘clean’ him like cleaner fish do.

Harold looks around at the fish “Shouldn’t these be in water?” Merrick replies “They are in water.” Harold shakes his head confused. Felix reads some books. Liam goes to his cloudwatching space.

Liam actually did explain he wishes to fight the bad with Yon. Felix then joins. Harold and Gabrielle say they wish to sleep before fighting the wolf. Yon hears a bell in his room. Yon excuses himself, and hears a bell in his room. Felix reads about wolves, but doesn’t read about anything like the large wolf he faced. Yon opens his door, and Gabby and Harold join reluctantly, but Yon explains rest is essential to their quest. we all rest. Night falls, morning breaks.

Yon is on a quest to fix the broken day. Yon goes to the dining room, where amazingly enough, there is breakfast. Wherever we usually sit is our breakfast of choice. Yon’s breakfast is high in fiber, with prune juice. We eat. Benley is mysteriously absent. Harold’s breakfast consists of lots of pot pies. Liam eats only half his meal. Harold wants to know when to move out, Yon says “as soon as possible.” The teens move to the same spot they thought they found the wolves in the first time. There is a voice in the forest. “Throw down your weapons and surrender.” Yon shouts back “On who’s authority?” “On mine ya bloody blaggart!” Liam sees at least six men with bows about to shoot us. Yon grabs his sheild. Initiative!

Gabrielle goes to climb the tree. Rawr! She misses. Harold goes to a different badguy. He misses. Liam goes to attack yelling “bogga bogga bogga” and hits. Felix attempts to mental contact yet another, and contacts, making him hold action. Harold is hit with a shortsword. Felix is missed. Liam is hit very mildly. Gabrielle is hit. The held guard is stunned. Yon moves up to his attacker, drawing his sword, and misses. Harold feints but misses his attack. Gabrielle tumbles and goes to attack who Harold is attacking. Felix attempts to psychic shout two baddies, one hits the other misses. Yon is critically hit. They miss liam. Yon intimidates his opponent, and hits him. Gabrielle critically hits Harold’s first opponent, backstabbing and dropping him. Harold hits the badguy trying to attack Felix, and hits him in the back. Liam hits his target. Yon is missed. Yon intimidates his target, but misses his attack. Gabrielle kills her target. Harold holds action Liam moves to sonic burst the two that Felix has been effectively incapacitating. Felix psychic shouts the one that the sonic burst did not stun. Yon’s assailant runs away, yon runs toward the stunned individual. Gabrielle moves to slay the stunned opponent after asking Yon “should I kill him?”, and does. Felix was mentally contacted by someobody who just died. This brings back traumatic memories. We all notice that Felix collapses sobbing, saying “Alias!” Yon raises an eyebrow as Liam runs to him to console him, Felix shouts “Get away from me!” and shoves Liam. Felix’ hand goes to his necklace, which looks to have been altered to be longer to fit Felix. Harold asks Felix “What’s the matter?” Harold asks Gabby “Who is Elias?” and Gabby says that must have been the name of the guy she just killed. Harold says she shouldn’t have killed him. Gabrielle says that Yon told her to.

Felix talks about Alias, and Liam attempts to lay hands on Felix, but Felix recoils and shouts “Stay away from me!” again. Liam explains he’s just trying to help, but it doesn’t work that well, as Felix claims that Liam “did this to her.” explaining he killed her. Liam provokes Felix, and gets a psychic blast to the face. Yon stays silent, and Harold backs away. Liam explains that Felix has the intent to kill, and Liam wishes that Felix didn’t. Felix says “large words from someone who just killed my friend” responding to the delusion. Yon tries to explain things to Liam, telling him the majority did not see what you saw. Felix agrees to come back for treatment, and the party head back to town. As we are approaching the town, Felix begins to have a headache, and feels like he got hit by a horse. Yon states “as far as I know you have no reason to be mentally injured.” Gabrielle asks about Alias, explaining the situation. Felix explains that Alias has been gone for seven years. (we left the unconscious body in the forest, accidentally.) Liam hears a small voice in the alley he’s passing through (because he’s ahead of us since he stormed off.) “No master, no!” An old guy was beating what appears to be a seven year old with a cane. Liam’s eyes go black, and says “You chose the wrong day to mess with someone.” And the old guy responds “Get out of here, freak.” Liam hits him and downs him, asking if the kid is okay, and tries to heal the kid, who gets up and runs down the alley. Liam shouts to him not to go back to that master again. The rest of the party get back to the manor. In the foyer, The butler materializes from a wall, to Harold and Gabrielle’s chagrin, and looks at harold saying “young master is very injured.” Harold shrugs it off, Gabrielle is upset that Harold went alone at first. Harold is taken to a room with solid stone floor and hole in the floor, filled in with mud. Harold climbs in, making sure he knows there’s a bottom and he can get back out, and he falls asleep. Gabrielle follows. Yon uses lay on hands on himself and goes to his room to rest. The butler explains “you can get out miss.” but when Gabrielle asks about Harold, he’s still sleeping. she gets dressed, and two hours later, Harold is told he can get out too. He gets dressed, and goes to eat in the common room. Felix went to the library and read a book, falling asleep. Yon wakes up and feels refreshed. He seeks out the others, going to the common room. The butler taps Yon on the shoulders, and has a note for Yon. Yon takes it, and thanks the butler, reading the note afterwards. A farming family was attacked by a pack of wolves, one fatality ensued, and a girl went missing. (it’s a guard report) And asks to help find the others so they may try yet again. Harold Yon and Gabrielle walk into the library and find Felix unaware of our presence. Yon asks to attempt yet again to slay the evil wolf. Felix agrees, and walks around the giant landing to Yon. Does anyone know where Liam is? We think we want to go to Liam, and we end up outside on steps to a balcony, where Liam is laying down just cloud watching, giving no attention to the teens. Harold calls to Liam, and Liam asks why do they need him, Yon responds “the more the merrier. can’t you see I’m merry?” and Liam grumbles and agrees to go. The teens go to the new scene of the new fatality. Yon allows Harold to think he’s leading the group. We get to the scene of the attack. The farmer’s wife and one boy are there. They’re showing that the girl was kidnapped from her room, her window was broken into by a big wolf with red eyes. there’s blood still splattered everywhere. we find tracks outside the window, and follow them. The tracks split into two groups. They attempt to aid eachother in tracking, and get confused because we think the tracks become more numerous. Harold wonders aloud if there are more. Felix smells smoke, and the rest of us smell a change in the air. We follow the smoke. Harold tries to be stealthy. Gabrielle tries to be stealthy as well. Liam also tries to be stealthy. Yon does not. Harold and Gabrielle find a clearing with wolves, two bonfires, some henchmen, the kidnapped girl in the middle of a ring of mushrooms, and a scraggly man in the thick of it incanting something. The man’s eyes do not appear to be red, but the bonfire may be concealing that. Harold moves back to the rest, and stops them, informing of the situation. Yon draws sword and shield. Gabrielle (still ahead) notices after Harold leaves that the man starts glowing red. Liam tries to be stealthy. Gabrielle tries to advance stealthily, and gets close enough to hit a rock at the red glowy guy. It bounces off. She throws a dagger as the others approach. It hits the mark exactly, and he stops chanting at a final word, as his eyes glow red and he changes into a big bad wolf. INITIATIVE. Gabrielle is noticed by the wolves in unison. (Hive mind) as she monkeys around in the trees. Harold tries getting to Gabby. The tree they’re hiding in tries to entangle them. Gabrielle is massively hurt, Harold got a little hurt. Yon runs up to the wolves. Felix psychic blasted one of the wolves. Liam does a soundburst. Yon gets hit for massive amounts of damage by three of the henchmen rogues.

Gabrielle moves a half move. Harold attacks a wolf, flanking it. The big bad moves over to the ring of mushrooms, he and the girl disappear. Gabrielle gets hurt. Yon hits one brigand. Felix aims at another with a psychich “ha-do-ken” and misses, Liam gets upset and hits a thug. Thugs take 5 foot steps backward after attacking Yon and missing. Gabrielle is hit by a wolf and is nearly prone. Yon does a lay on hands on himself while cursing the cowardly druid-wolf. Felix apports Gabrielle out of the brush to near Yon. Liam kicks the rogue in the head which at this point was overkill. Gabrielle passes out. Liam is laying on hands on Yon, then goes for Harold who is moving back through entanglement, and heals him too. The blue ring appears to have lost it’s glow. Yon searches the bandit and find nothing of immediate interest. Liam carries him back to the gates, and is questioned by the guards. “he is involved with the wolf case.” Yon eloquently explains the situation. The Seargeant offers a cell to put the unconscious man in. They do. Yon asks for the captain, who will be back in the morning. Liam incants, and tells yon to interrigate the man. Yon asks “why did you kidnap that girl” “The master wanted her.” “Why did the master want her?” “He wanted to sacrifice her to the dark Fey” “what is the dark fey?” “opposite of the good fey” “Which specific dark fey?” “I don’t know.” “So who is your master?” “He calls himself the big bad wolf.” “Where did your master go with the girl?” “To fairyland.” “How do we get there?” “You go through the fairy ring.” “Do we need anything special in order to travel through this fairy ring?” “I don’t know.” “Do you know someone who can activate the ring other than the big bad wolf” “No.” “Do you know if it’s in another dimension” “I don’t know.” Felix has read that you need to pour fine wine over the ring in order to activate it. The party unanimously decide to rest until they can talk to the captain. There’s a note in the middle of the table at breakfast. Liam hands Yon the mail. Three farms got sacked, and three girls got kidnapped. There were also many casualties. Yon immediately leaves, and goes to the Garrison, with everybody else behind him. The captain is there, and Yon explains that martial law should be enacted to assure all young girls below marital age are taken to the castle for protection. Yon asks for wine, and the captain writes a note for the flying unicorn to give Yon a bottle of wine. The party excuses themselves, and go to the Flying Unicorn, which surprisingly has clean floors, and intact walls. They actually sell fine wines and upscale food. There are bouncers, who demand Yon’s pass. He shows them. A man behind the bar walks over to Yon saying “well you’re a little young to drink but what can I do for you?” “I need some fine wine in order to fight evil.” And the bartender sashays away, He comes back carrying a bottle with dust on it, saying “Charles owes me big for this one.” and Yon thanks him and says “this will help me fight evil.” And leaves. The group go back to the fairy ring, and when we get there we notice the bonfires are out, the entanglements are gone, and the ring of mushrooms is still there. Felix attempts to replicate the procedure from the book. Felix calls for Yon, who doesn’t want to drink. Liam explains the process: Pour some in the circle, pour some on yourself, and drink some. Felix tells everybody to stand in the circle. He pours the wine in the circle, and the circle glows. We all appear on a road, there is an archway behind us and a road going off. We’re in a shadowy realm with just a spell. We walk until we go through another archway. On the other side, the scenery changes, and…
