    @Corlupi- Protip: Being dead means your buckler doesn't block your fingers! Renn should try it sometime >:)

    Great video, Cuch! I think a lot of our players will find it very instructive. Even I picked up a tip or two. smile

    ...but, come on, lute *and* buckler? No wonder Mors' music wakes the dead, what with him playing the strings with his teeth. tongue

A banifactor..


Journal Writes~

I realize in all the projects which we have undertaken, what has been thus far forgotten is our vengeance for the insults given. That wretched Bargus has still not paid for his actions against us, and now more than ever I seek to let him know who he has crossed.

To this man I shall send forth my wrath, to let it wash over him and his city that he will know fear and despair.. and all will know what it means to cross me.

The plan is formed, and steps shall begin to be taken. I care not how long this project takes to see into completion, it will be done. Let the island known fear and dread, let the island be dragged out of it's complacent state of being, let them know what powers still walk this land and dread their names when spoken. For Bane.. most of all for my own self, let this course be done.

The following notice goes up in various places where those of questionable intentions are known to frequent. After some contemplation the notice is changed slightly and reposted.

Fresh orders had finally come in, a scouting run, a detailed rundown of the cities ins and outs. He was glad to accept the mission more so for the reasoning behind it then the end goal but either way he was to put his nose to the grindstone once more. The city didn't view him as a threat and he didnt yet plan give them reason to, less then a shadow more of a mere breeze as he silently made through alleyways memorizing things for marking later. She had expressed the want for details of the keep, she would have them.

After a few slow vials of sap at the flying mug Daniel touched up his finished map before letting it dry and rolling it up. He left a tip with the barkeep for the full vials, sent an informal salute to a silent lady in a corner drinking the same as he was with her katanas then made his way out. "Surface covered time to look a bit lower for the grimey details." He made his way north with a slight bounce in his step before entering the shop to lay a map across the table for a certain High Priestess to overview.

Step: Daniel would scout out Steinkreis to determine more about the city, including entrances and exits. More importantly a careful study of the keep would be deteremined, all information which would make the goal easier to accomplish.

Step: Ore would be collected to provide some persons a shield against what was to come.

Step: A meeting would be arranged with Gloin, that she could speak with the dwarf in regards to Stone-working. If he was not able to perform the task, then surely he would be able to direct her to someone suiting for such things.

Step: Paydon would see to creating gems with magic for the project.

Step: A location and workspace would need to be arranged, one made secure against the effects of the project.

Her mind reeled at how much was already accomplished, five steps put into motion within the span of mere days. Yet even with so much already accomplished to the end goal, there was still so much more work yet to be done. For every step forward taken, three more seemed to loom in the distance and hold the goal out of means for now.

A glass of wine in hand bore a dull glint in the firelight, as she studied the map upon the tabletop before her. So much done, and even more still that was not. It was time to collect a second component for shielding, one far more difficult to seek on this island.

She wondered who was up to the task.

Her fingertips traced the letter from Taron, before nodding once.

The man known as Karstrynn had collected what she sought, and for a moment she contemplated their interactions long past. They had not gotten along in times before, but perhaps amends were being sought.

Time to seek out Korthos for another part, and await word from Gloin.

It would seem that the exploration of Steinkreis Keep was far, far more thorough than I had expected. Not only was Daniel able to map the floors accurately and leave the maps in the shop, there was another item he delivered personally.

Tucked into a box with an old sock and something he deemeds a Dust Birdie, was a parchment that was wrapped in a protective cover and marked with the official seal of the Lord Kampfer. Late Lord Kampfer, perhaps, I'm still unsure if his death is confirmed in full.

Perhaps we shall find someone talented at forgery, and make the best use of what was recently acquired. Although what was found could very well be a copy of the original document, it is hard to know at this time. What I can say is that this provides us with a highly unexpected but welcomed opportunity, holding on to Kampfer's Will.

Before Gloin's return to the Underdark, Nasmat had asked him about stone-working. Now that he had finally completed what he had set out to do, he began to contemplate what she had said. The entire dwarven race, duergar included, prided themselves on their stonecunning ability.

Though he considered his own skill unpolished enough for what the high-priestess of Bane might be looking for, he began to ask around Chudrak-dûm to see if he could hire some work.

Later that evening, however, another idea struck him. Murin Kvistir probably knew alot about stone-work.

Karstrynn had delivered the ore to Taron in her stead, bringing a far larger amount than had been requested. Even so, there was no complaint about having more supplies on hand for the task she was about to undertake. The weight of such, however, was rather unexpected as she attempted to lug the crate about the island in order that the contents reach the places she required them to be.

Finally Daniel was enlisted to deliver the largest bulk of it, and she took the rest into the shop with care.

Mortar and pestle set to work, as she busted the hard pieces of ore up into a fine powder and cast a blessing over the flecks of metal. The stoney material shielded the dwarves up in Hellshire, and with that principle firmly in mind she set to the task of shielding the shop.

And the Second..

With this in place she penned up a note to ensure all those of the Zhentarim and all their employees would take note and pay heed..

Do NOT disturb the metallic dust encirling the building's interior, until it is deemed acceptable to do so.

Settled at her desk, Bane's High Priestess took a moment to reflect upon the current status of the project.


Step: Completed. Ore was collected, courtesy of Karstrynn. It had been delivered to some, used as neeeded for her own residence, and still a few bits remained for the workspace when such was determined.

Step: Half Completion. She had maps of the upper city, Daniel said he would complete the sewer level soon and have those ready by the time it came for them to act.

Step: Partial Completion. She had spoken with Gloin on the matter, she awaited word now of his progress on the matter at hand. His role was important, very important indeed. She was loathe to place such a crucial task into the hands of someone outside the Network and the Temple, but it was a necessary course of action.

Step: Partial Completion. Additional materials created by Paydon, most suiting really as it was his magic that originally formed the spell in the 'Shire. Such was not yet needed, but would also aid in the project's sucess.

The most important aspect was not yet set into place, but such would be highly dependant upon Daniel's maps and navigation. So much of the project rested in the hands of others that it set her nerves on edge..

She would have to place a measure of trust in all these people, that her vengeance could be done.





//OOC: This is -NOT- attempting to rush anyone, I just wanted to post a drabble to show the plot was still in place.

She was uncertain how it happened.. but somewhere in all the changed across the island, the landscape of the 'Shire had begun to heal. Small flickers of life were coming into being among the Wasteland, a sign that the curse which had been laid upon it might be at an end far sooner than the passage of a thousand years.

What it meant, was that she would have to act soon or the taint which infected the landscape and the stones within it would be lost. A fact, which highly irritated her. She hated being rushed in her grand designs, it caused ends to become loose.

Paydon would make materials, but given that she wanted to teach Bargus a lesson in what it meant to defy her will.. she too set to the task of enchanting various gems with a selection of spells.

A location was selected for the work process, now to collect the materials before they were somehow purged of the essence of death. Some parts would need found, and others still made.. there was still much work ahead of them and someone had to find a stone-worker.

She set off to write a letter and request the necessary aid of masonry expert and his team.
