[Plot] Glim Sparkletoes' plea for aid.

Post by daveyeisley on Thu Jul 24, 2008 9:48 am

OOC: this post is a message that appears on a parchment tacked to the wall of the sleeping dragon. the purpose of this post is to introduce a plot that I am developing and intend to run. As there is no feasible way to guarantee when certain players will be online, this plot will be "free form". Whoever is online when the NPCs and other events take place, and chooses to interact with them (it is obviously not mandatory to do so) will be able to participate. To prevent needless player frustration, I recommend achieving *at least* 6th level before interacting with this plot... higher is better, but I certainly dont intend to require 20th level characters to further the plot.


Hail and well met!

My name is Glim. Glim Sparkeltoes. I am posting this notice to let you all know
that I am in dire need of aid.

I am undertaking a quest for the cause of good. I intend to put a stop to
the plans of the evil gnome sorceror, Bing the Heartless. I have discovered
that Bing plans to use his brutish Half-orc bodyguard and his arcane powers
to take control of and unify the various bandits and highwaymen operating in
Nektaria and the Shieldlands. If he is not stopped, all trade and travel along
the common routes, even that which is protected by guards and mercenaries,
will be in great danger of attack. Innocent merchants and servants will
be robbed, captured, beaten, ransomed, or worse. Not to mention the impact
on various towns and townsfolk once trade grinds to a halt.

I have secured a room at the Sleeping Dragon Inn. I intend to travel the
local area and learn what more I am able. If you are a kind-hearted soul
with an interest to protect the region and its inhabitants, please aid
me in hunting down the agents of this would-be tyrant and putting his
evil plans to an end. I shall hope to meet you soon, that we might
travel together and gain strength in numbers as well as valuable
information regarding our foe.

Sparkletoes... hmm... Sparkletoes... weren't it yer uncle wut fell head first in a keg o' ale at the annual Deep Diggers guild picnic and ended up rollin down a hill crushin three goblins wut were tryin ter sneak up and poison the food... maybe it were some other feller I were thinkin of...

Now, down ter business...

I were thinkin bout gettin a bunch o' the lads tergether ter help ye out.

What about three days from now?

That would be the Twenty Seventh Day o' the Sun, sometime after midday's meal... how about the hour of three EST (Excellent Slaughterin' Time).

If ye can wait those few days let me know an I'll start askin around fer volunteers.

Sta'stillen desperately wants to participate, but has too uncertain a schedule to make a solid commitment for battle (sometimes devotion to Lysis can be ... unpredictable). Instead she wishes the best and bloodiest for you, and prays for Lysis to favor your excursions!

A small note is attached to the sign at the bottom.

I hate those thieves. Always shooting at me, freezing me, and trying to zap me with their magic wands. I may be small but I want to get even. I will try to be there

Just a head's up/request for folks who intend to be involved with the plot/quest/event thingy tomorrow...

It would be helpful to me if everybody was logged into ventrilo while we play, so as to cut down on wait time due to me needing to type things that everybody would need to be aware of out-of-character wise. With
everybody logged into ventrilo, even if some folks don't have microphones, I could say what I need to and everybody could hear me.

Of course, it is not mandatory.... if you dont want to install ventrilo, you can still be involved. I would really appreciate it if folks did though, as it would make my life easier. You might also find it to be advantageous for party coordination, and even RP if you have a good knack for your character's voice Smile

FYI,

I live in southern Connecticut, and we are currently experiencing heavy rains and an electrical storm. I am hoping it will pass uneventfully, but I may possibly lose power, or internet service.

My apologies in advance if this occurs.

So, the first episode has concluded.

Glim Sparklestoes played the fool as the adventurers tracked down several bandit ambush teams. They eventually captured and interrogated one of the bandit chiefs to learn that the head of the bandits in the area was involved in an alliance with Bing the Heartless to solidify control of the bandit groups and thereby control the trade routes.

Glim was later revealed to in fact be a fake persona. An alias used by Bing the Heartless himself to draw out, identify, and gain information about the defenders of the region. After exposing himself in a failed attempt to stop the adventurers from reaching the bandit leader, Bing very narrowly escaped to his hideout.

Jareth Nethrae, the leader of the largest contingent of bandits, was defeated along with his elite lieutenants in a long and bloody battle on the edge of the forest of Daramok. After his defeat, adventurers were able to track Bing down to a cave near Valorian's vale.

Bing was then defeated, along with his "meatshield" Half-Orc bodyguard, Mongo Skullsplitter. Bing's defeat brought more questions than answers, however.

It seems Bing was merely a pawn being used in some greater plot masterminded by a follower of Sorgath. One Djarim Valtran. Who this individual is, and what his plans and motives are remain unknown. Perhaps the adventurers can find some clue as to his location...

Aww, would have loved to have everybody there (though man o man what I would have had to throw at you all to make it a challenge!) but the plot isnt over yet.

I posted the synopsis above just to make sure folks could be mostly up to speed if they get involved at a later point... I am still working out the next episode. Took longer than I expected to set the first one up!

Also, a HUGE thank you to Amethyst for creating the custom DM tools for me to use to put it all together!

Cam reclines lazily on a short reclining wooden chair, his toes tracing lines in the sand at his feet. The tide comes in and these lines are once again washed away. A long contented sigh escapes his lips as he stretches out, his right arm propped beneath his head and his left hand holding a half empty bottle of ale.

A serving woman appears with a second bottle of ale and tightly rolled scroll, "Your ale and your news, sir."

Cam offers the woman a friendly smile and places the second ale in the sand at his side. The scroll he quickly unrolls and begins reading with a bit of excitement. Matters in the Vale were left a bit unfinished for Cam's taste and he's anxious to see how things were coming along.

After reading the scroll cam rolls it back up and begins to rise. With a look at his half empty bottle, Cam re-considers and settles back down into his chair. Downing the last half of the bottle in one long pull, Cam trades it for the full bottle.

Gazing out into the vast waters before him another sigh escapes his lips and is followed by a slight smile. "Not yet," Cam murmurs to himself, "Soon...but not yet."
