The Siege of Exterrea

Akvah: First Days

I like this place already! I was a bit worried about how it would turn out, but the people here are great!

Rita’s wonderful. Hope I get to spend more time with her in the future.

Not too fond of the whole “killing the generals” thing, though…

Seems a little unnecessary to me.

Drott: Dogma

Mofutan gives me strength. He gives me power.

There are other gods who exist, more than I could guess. And they all have their own followers. Some grant power to a select few. But Mofutan is the one who watches over me — who shares his wisdom and courage of the men of the Hunt.

I’d be foolish to say their gods are wrong. I’ve seen the power invoked by them. But not all gods are gracious enough to watch over the soldiers of Zolann. And in punishment, Mofutan turns ignorant to the troubles of lesser men. His heart is in the Wild, in Zolann, with me and my fellow hunters.

Kane refuses to believe. He’s foolish at times. He’s seen the power. He pretends, though. For my sake. I know that he could serve the Hunter, well. And in return, gain strength through his power. But I cannot force him to believe. Futile efforts are best reserved for futile men.

Vandlo: Sky Terror
A Traveller's Guide

Sky Terror

Sky Terrors, as the Zolannese call them, are cunning and intelligent avian predators. Originally appearing very much humanoid these creatures are deadly hunters who should be avoided at all costs.

Appearance and Traits

These creatures, as stated previously, are able to wrap their wings around their body to appear almost humanoid from a distance. They are able to speak common and seem to almost enjoy conversing with their prey before hunting them down, this could be due to their seemingly solitary nature. When beginning their attack the unfurl their wings (which often appear as robes when they wish to appear less threatening) and distend their jaws.

Hunting

Upon acquiring prey they surround them in what can only be described as a wall of fire. They then proceed to use a combination of fire and dust based attacks to confuse and disorient their targets, often blinding them and leaving them unable to defend themselves, while they attack from the sky. While I did not witness this personally, I believe that once they have worn their prey down they start attacking with a venomous bite that will have horrific effects on its target. Once the target is (mostly) dead, they will proceed to consume their prey’s flesh.

Defense

I highly suggest bringing a few enchanted ranged weapons with you if you plan on encountering this creature. Failing that, some kind of netting or trap to keep the creature on the ground is highly advised. The best advice I can give you when going up against this creature is to attempt to escape at all costs, as it is a fearsome foe.

Thought from Kane
kill all people

kane what are you doing? not sure what I am doing. risking my life for what? for these people?

I need to start staying out of danger these people need to do more or they might just meet with a untimely end. I think though taking this little brake will help us get to know the new people better.

Not sure but |I might have to let these people know that I can and will take on those who work against me. I might suggest to brother that we do these side missions while those people go talk to that butcher that is the flaming Kobold. i still dont think they understand how bad this guy is.

But hey its not my death its all them.

Aodris: Give Me Your Hands, If We Be Friends

We have found new company, including one of our own countryfolk. He is most agreeable.

We seem to be encountering much success with this tavern business; the fox damsel’s tea has brought in many visitors. They say that we are off to hunt some more of these people they call generals, but we misremember why.

Perfidious has been restless of late. Perhaps we must spend a night or two under the stars once more, to remember our kingdom. It is difficult to be so far from home, but we are certain our people are doing well.

Drott: The Journey to 16 Rivers: Part 2-2
RE: Is this the end for the brothers?

“Kaw!”

That shriek was unmistakable. And so is that wing-span. It is Styx. And the bear sees him, too. Now’s our chance.

Drott places his hand on his brother’s shoulder, and the Zolannese warrior grew several feet in height. Kane immediately swung at the animal and bear-ly (see what I did there?) hit it, opening its flesh. The bear roared, it’s mouth as large as a human head. The bear growled and began to back away.

It’s afraid. And knows we can harm it. We can avoid this fight and keep moving.

Kane swung again, striking the creature in the face. It roared again, its mouth filled with blood. Styx swept in from behind and mangled its back a bit more. The animal tried to run, but it was now surrounded. Kane struck it a couple more times, and the animal collapsed to the ground.

“Look, Brother. We have meat!”

“It seems we do. Let’s make our way back to camp.”

“Yes.” Kane took a moment to look around. “Which way is it?”

“I don’t know. This is the reason we need a guide.” Drott turned to Styx, who had already begun to feast on the dead animal. “Styx. Kaw kaw, k’kaw kaw, kaw.”

“Kaw, kaw.”

“Kaw. Kaw kaw, k’kaw.”

“Kaw.” Styx took flight. “Kaw kaw.”

“Styx will lead us to it. You can carry the food. He wants some when we get there.”

Kane shrunk back down to his normal size and threw the dead animal over his back. “Yeah. Sure.”

The two brothers began to march through the forest. “Why would you think the beast would attack you?”

I swear it was not me this time(kane) styx I think attacked him and now is making us run.

drott looks up into the sky and shakes a fist at styx

(drott) dam you bird.

the brothers do a zig zag pattern hoping to shake the beast. But to no luck.

Brother we might have to split up to lose this bear.(kane)

not sure I like that idea (drott)

Brother at least you can live I am sure i can out run this bear over time. (kane)

ok ok I don’t like it but lets try it. when I say go you turn left and I will go right (drott)

Hlvart: A most grand discovery!
Finally work pulls through again.

By the gods ‘Vart you sure have been doing a number on things out there. Its like you’re starting to become just like the rest of them, just you have a tendency of blowing things up instead.

Yes, yes, Krill I have noticed this. Its so unlike me. It actually makes me feel a little disturbed.

A quite poof is heard in the back ground.

I thought all this would be exciting and I would travel, being more useful. These damn blasted brutes have seen to things otherwise. …If i could only stay around here, but I keep hoping maybe the next job will be different.

Something bubbles lightly followed by a hiss.

Right, things be different with this crowd. Though I must say, you seem to have gotten quite adapt at being selfish with your gift.

Oh its not like they really need it anyway. Plus it gets a little tiring watching them just charge blindly in to the fray. I’m not little my talents go to waste on them. I’ll tend to their wounds and try to heal them up after but,

But nothing! I remember when you stood up for Gina, used your gift for good. Its not wasted on them if it can help keep people alive.

But!

Besides, its not like anyone seems to be on to your little secret anyways.

Look Krill, as a blinding flash goes off, they run off before I can do anything normally. Fool hardy, blood thirsty and selfishly. …I suppose I can justify it all I want. I guess sometimes I don’t know if what we do is “good.” The way I see it, getting in their way won’t stop anything. I mean, helping fight off savages is one thing, but actively seeking people out to kill. it doesn’t seem right to me. The least I can do next time is to try and see if things can be fixed with words first.

Now your thinking. Using your head like that. Stick to what you know. People are your thing, outshine them that way.

Ha, I think I did it! I’m sorry what did you say krill?

Never mind it. Have you finally made a break through?

Aodris: Steal Me Awhile From Mine Own Company

Perfidious, these are most intriguing days. What do you suppose the stars have in store for us now that we have defeated the angry general?

Screaming shits, man, you almost got us trampled by a giant lizard. Have a little more fucking CAUTION.

Apologies, dear friend. We shall have to take care to remain a bit more out of the way in the future.

And that’s another thing. You don’t mean to say you actually trust these bastards?

They have never been anything but friendly.

I mean, some of them are probably fine, I’ll admit, but I don’t trust those Zolannese. They keep going off in the corners to “discuss” things.

Well, they are brothers, after all.

And that fucking giant bird gives me the shivers. I think you should steal his soul before he eats us.

I do not know how to steal souls, my friend. Nor would I if I could. Souls are fractious things, best left to their owners.

Someday I’m going to get some gods-damned sense out of you.
