The Orphans of Cathorna
(Space for future plans)
Scenario 1: The coal face
-Find the horn.
-Nullify its dark magic. Altraam has 2 possible solutions.
-Destroy any creatures still invested with dark power
-Dispel fears of a repeat occurrence.
-Cost benefit of prep time v letting the demon prepare/grow strong/find horn
-Seek the horn 1st; cleansing it may destroy anything it created
-Detect magic to allow us to home in on the Horn. Do beetles shy away from it?
-Altraam lets his piece of horn hang freely. See if gravity is the only influence on it.
-Use Tomas mining skills to help guide us through the cave in.
-Use of large shields to keep enemy from our flesh.
-Show no fear. If you can’t do that you best guard the entrance to the mine
Altraam should lead this mission because
-Responsibility He never should have allowed the horn to be tossed in a hole.
-Resistance Ego gives best chance of resisting creatures of the netherworld
-Religion He is best equipped to fight whatever (with spells & words)
-Reason Nether-being skill and Tactics are best skills to keep us alive.
Beckett: Map maker/Warrior
We don’t know how complex the cave in will be. Beckett can map it and take centre position in a shield formation. He is the most skilled shields-man in the group and a line of shields may keep evil demonic/undead hands from our flesh.
Tomas: Mine expert/Warrior
Has some knowledge of the mine so can act as a guide while telling us what is new tunnels and what is old. Recent frost band acquisition may be for just such an occasion so he need to be near any action.
Direction sense will help us keep our bearings when moving in the direction of the horn. Has a handy light source to help avoid surprise and forms the final three of a shield wall. Three people together means the disadvantage is negated for large shields.
Cian: Caving/Loose Cannon
It’s what will happen anyway so lets plan for it.
Caving should help our general survival. He has ego defence to allow him to operate independently. Big weapon also best suited to standing alone.
Has the conviction to keep us on course, a spell to drive enemy away, healing if someone does get hurt, his bless spell and a possible solution to the problem. Needs to stay up to do this and he has to get to the horn. I tried something that failed in the dream last session. I think it will work in the real world but didn’t try it at the time.
Personal Issues 2: Rural idle/ideal
Potion (HTH and life support)
-Have Amrik identify them; hopefully above what Tomas has already (1 silver each)
-Hopefully determine duration, power and or number of doses
-Have a cloth lined wooden box made to carry 4 bottles
-Will the potions spoil i.e. do they have a use by date.
-Show it to our elves, tell them its story. Maybe that skeleton was elf/1/2 elf
-Offer to return if to them if they know who is belongs to
-See if they can identify its powers or owner
-Suggest Beckett/Tomas do above with sword/shield
-Make a copy possibly to diffuse its magic in to a second shoe.
-Quest to find other or return this one
-Let traders know I’m looking for the other shoe and will bargain for it.
Ring of desire
-Take off money for its design (Tomas) and making (Sulkana if accepted)
-Offer to place stone myself sighting concern of mind control effects
-Make sure face value is not so high as to make it too valuable
-Religious markings to make people fear consequences of theft.
-Pay a silver to get Amrics advice. Access to martial arts book gives him that trust.
-Carry it in purse for a few months to make if feel mine (attune to it)
-Trade copper/silver from same purse and try to summon them to me
-Polish it, mentally summon it, speak/think name Neeshka provided
-Richard: Told to choose a woman, not have 2 on the go.
-Richard: 2 months to choose or Altraam tells them both.
-Mila: Quizzed on inconsistent approach pre and post Kel eviction
-Kids Altraams support and Church money to employ/motivate
-Mila: Poison theory; explain how easily I could’ve blamed her, yet I didn’t
-All: Support the honourable, monitor the deceitful or untrustworthy
-Secrecy from traders more important than getting help
-Promote lifestyle, supporting leadership, repaying Orome, Nedley commitment
-Approach party about sister being custodian of our seeing stone until we need it.
-Monthly rituals in preparation of move.
-A more aggressive outlook by Altraam as he prepares for confrontation.
