Party Status and Goals and WIP

Suggested Actions Next Session:

  • Sponsors…
  • Ship preps…
  • Taking care regarding scrying: Balths codewords/signals for “shutup” or “we should have a secret meeting ASAP” are any remarks about sex or amorous activity ;)

Update: PCs almost made it to Bress?, having been ambushed en route and making another ally – the planeswalker Faro.

Current Location: The party is currently in WinterHAVEN, on the 4th floor of the tower of Valthurien the Sage. The group recently secured the Keep on the Shadowfell by forcing a force of squatting goblins to offer us tribute. Soon we will leave Winterhaven for Bress, having last been there at least 5-6 months ago.

Summary of Current Plans:

  • Complete further negotiations with tenants of the Keep of the Shadowfell
  • Have furtherr consultations with the Sage Valthurien regarding quests and such
  • Rhogar placed in the care of the White Lady???
  • Return to Bress

Detail of Current Plans: (not updated yet)
Balths Grand Plan ;-)

1) Secure the Keep/Shadow-Rift with rituals, and also set in motion plans to restore the keep to guard against future attempts to restore/access the rift portal.

2) Discuss current situation with party + Valthurien and maybe the White Lady in Winterhaven, and ideally tailor a strategy that leads to the steps below.
Balth together with Valthurien will seek to determine what the crystal in Rhogars skull is. I assume Rhogar is not 14th level and wont rejoin the party anytime soon. He may be up for being an agent for us in the Dragonborn Empire (see below).
Also determine the whereabouts of Bee (favored by The Raven Queen) who may be able to help us create and use Linked Portals! PS. Her homeland is Alpenwoede…
NB. The Exarchs may or may not tell us where to contact them, but ideally it would be in Bress or somewhere en-route to there.

3) Return to Bress to do the following;
a) improve the “intel network” created by Medea/Balth, including selecting some agents to report from the Dragonborn Empire.
b) finish the refit of the party ship in preparation for future Quests around the archipelago! =)
c) recruit a backup/alternate party from the remains of Kregors Voyagers and elsewhere to undertake a mission to the Dragonborn Empire. (part of the Auspex Quest)

4) Sail south to drop off spies and/or alternate party in Skellagor (a slaver port on the northern shore of the Dragonborn Empire lands)

5) Sail to Alpenwoede via the Buccanneer Isles (maybe have a pirate battle en route?)

6) Locate Bee on Alpenwoede and convince her to aid us with acessing the Linked Portals. PS. It might be handy if she joined the ships crew – just in case we have another mission like the Shadowfell one and end up a long way from our ship.

7) Sail to the Fey Isles where Balth has some personal business to attend to.

8) Ask the Elves and Eladrin on the Fey Isles for assistance locating and battling Drow to prevent them joining the Orcus army (part of the Auspex Quest)

9) Travel north to Jarl Holm to prevent Frost Giants joining the Orcus army (part of the Auspex Quest)

10) Possibly visit other parts of The Archipelago such as the Isle of Sunda, the Shattered Archipelago, and the Isle of Sahul, before returning to Marsyna and/or Bress.


  • The party has new “adventuring” head quarters which they are currently renovating. The Villa
  • The party has existing room(s) as Kregors adventurers, which they will soon be vacating. Update Kregors was (totally?) destroyed.
  • A gold mine nearby Bress is supplies %50 of its income to the party. 18K per month.


  • A sailing ship! (I think we need a wiki page devoted our ship) The Ship

Other Known Lairs

  • The keep of the shadowfell
  • Other lairs of enemies we’ve dispatched could go here…

Raff (RIP) was building a temple to Avandra in Bress.
Otherwise he is ready for the next adventure.
Balthasar is currently renovating a tower in Bress, to be used as a museum of antiquities. Remember to exit via the gift shop…
Otherwise he is ready for the next adventure.
Medea is acting strange and galavanting about in a scurrilous way (ie. behaving as normal). She now has a seat on the council Bress.
Otherwise she is ready for the next adventure.
Pamila is still talking to her sword and reconciling what to do about her reclaimed homelands.
She is busy.
Bruegar is a dwarf. Last heard he was looking after the party’s mining investment.
He is busy.
Dusk was brooding about during the incursion into Batonsburg, but appeared to have his spirits lifted once on the road in the wild. Whilst the rest of you all changed appearance in the Shadowfell, Dusk remained the same. Interestingly, now you’re back in the Natural world….he doesn’t cast a shadow….

Works In Progress (WIP)

  • The party probably needs a permanent sailing crew including; a decent shipwright, a decent navigator, etc
    Here are some links to roles aboard sailing vessels;
    Link 1 , Link 2 , Link 3
  • The party probably needs some staff at our residence to maintain our afffairs while we are otherwise engaged in looting and pillaging. Perhaps a butler and a maid for starters?
    Here are some links with information about some servants/hirelings we may consider;
    Link 1 , Link 2 , Link 3

Random Clues (to be followed up with Ben)
We’ve taken some demon parts from a previous battle with “carnage demons”. Do “Evistro” and “Kluktator” ring any bells? Perhaps from Medea and Balths solo adventure or the followup battle?
Some other items likely from theat battle are a “Book of Lore” and an “Old Map of Bress” featuring some underground sections.
Also the tower has books such as: “Mandrake and Nightshade”, “Gnomes: A History”, “Midnight Romance”?, and a “Swamps”? book (taken).
At some point we took 24hr supply of tea, poppies, and a sleep poison drug of “ground thassel root”.


  1. there is a sarjeant called “burnet” in the bress guard battery.
  2. there is a tunnel from kregors into the city underground (sewers).
  3. the wizard of the tower was named “Aljendro”?
  4. anyone recall “Splurg” the goblin rogue?
