    Yeah - both of those are just byproducts of my old-man eyes not seeing well from the toolset and thinking there was a path down from those ledges that there turned out to not be. There's also a bug with a pitfall in one part of the dungeon Blue told me about that is a similar "Stuck" point. I got one fixed last night, but never heard of or saw the second one until now. I'll get it fixed when I get home tonight!

    Forgiver, my dude. Falling into the gap on the way TO the dungeon is AWFUL. One good change today, not requiring a jump or a portal to even enter the zone, A+. But now if you fall (even if roped, because it doesn't actually work), you get stuck in an area you can't leave without a jump or portal.

    Fun!

    After years of saying I wanted to get a telescope my wife made the "mistake" of buying me a 102 f/12.7 Orion Maksutov-Cassegrain. Love it for planetary and brighter deep-sky viewing so far.

    Of course that just made the bug worse and want to get a larger scope for viewing fainter objects.

    So I am curious what other use.

    Working telescopes (atm): old Celestron C8 SCT I purchased back in 1979, new Celestron OmniXLT 150 6" f/5 Newtonian, cheapo Meade 90mm f/8.8 refractor sniped off of eBay for $30 (these three I use on a Celestron AVX mount). Also a homebuilt 10" Dobsonian put together in 2010 and a homebuilt 6" Newtonian I made in H.S. c. 1966. Main imaging camera (atm) is a Canon 60D DSLR. The new camera is the SVBony SV305 Pro - plan to use it as a guide camera and for moon/planetary imaging.

    What telescopes do you have? And camera?

    I'll likely miss Section Six tonight. Got a new camera for my telescopes and it looks like the sky will be clear. So, I'll be outside doing astrophotography stuff.

    Section Six will take place at 7pm CDT (-5GMT) tonight, which is an hour later than last week.

    We will meet in the Iron Minogon. Good(ish) type characters of level SEVEN or below ! Just assume your character got a mysterious letter inviting them there !

    They receive the DC benefit from items, but not from spell foci, since alchemist gas clouds are not spells. They also don't receive the bonus from the wild magic robe specifically since gas clouds can't wild magic.

    Are alchemists' clouds affected by spell focus/GSF or items/enchants that increase spell save DCs?

Following the passing of his beloved grandfather, Kellendill…. Now the Family’s Velahra’Tura (elven for “Weaponsmaster”), penned a traditional piece of poetry in his Grandfather’s honor:

Weilding his blood sword,
A hero who fights with pride,
And slays with honor.
He is a brave soul,
Drawing blood only for peace,
Never for vengeance.
Even if he falls,
In the midst of battle,
His name will stay on.

He penned it on the background of a painting of traditional Cherry Blossums, the Fehrien Family flower.

Ohtar Ma’aweriya
“Warrior Philosophy”


The Fehrien’s of Greenvale are a storied noble family with rich warrior traditions.

Volumes of their history exists in the Tel’Quessir Valorah… the Elven History of Thain.

But you cannot put a blade in any Elf’s hand and call him “warrior”.

Warrior is a term the Fehriens reserve for someone special. Someone Trained. Someone educated….cultured…elite.

Ohtar… is the elven word for Warrior.

Ar'ohtar is the Fehrein word for warrior… “noble warrior”… but it goes beyond even that for us.

Our family’s systemic approach to training, fighting, and, even, thinking, is unique among the family houses of Greenvale, or anywhere else.

We hold ourselves to a standard based on 7 fundamental principles of behavior…. Our Ohtar Ma’aweriya:

• Integrity- Be acutely honest in your dealings with all people. Believe in justice. To the true warrior, all points of view are considered regarding honesty, justice, and integrity.
• Respect- True warriors have no reason to be cruel. They do not need to prove their strength. Warriors are courteous, even to their enemies. They are respected not only for their strength in battle, but also by their dealings with others.
• Heroic Courage- Hiding like a turtle in a shell is not living at all. A true warrior must have heroic courage. It is absolutely risky. It is living life completely, to its fullest.
• Honor- Warriors have only one judge of honor and character, and this is themselves. The decisions they make and how those decisions are carried out is a reflection of who they truly are.
• Compassion- Through intense training and hard work the true warrior becomes quick and strong. They are not as most people. They develop a power that must be used for good. They have compassion, and help their fellow elves at every opportunity.
• Honesty and Sincerity- When warriors say that they will perform an action, it is as good as done. Nothing will stop them from completing what they say they will do. It is not necessary for them to “give their word” or to “promise”.
• Duty and Loyalty- Warriors are responsible for everything that they have done and everything that they have said, and all of the consequences that follow. They are immensely loyal to all of those within their care.

Queen’s guard.

That sentiment seemed so simple.

Yet…..it was SO complicated.

Beyond normal duty…..Kellendill was bound to not only protect the Queen...but represent her interests on the Isle as a whole.

He was inspired by the responsibility. Truly….it was his life’s work. He was driven to see his Queen’s will carried out. This was what he was MADE for.

He literally LIVED his life for this…. As did his father, and his father’s father… and many generations before.

Duty was his calling.

Many of us had our calling given to us. The Tailor….called his son to sew. The blacksmith...called his daughter to hammer iron. The diplomat...called his son or daughter to negotiate.

The Fehriens…..called their children to fight. They would use their Family’s bladesong fighting system…in service to their liege lord. As had been done for hundreds of generations.

This was his calling and his duty. And he relished it.

Such was the way of life….for a Fehrien child.

The weaponsmaster taught, as he was born to do.

He chose his students carefully.

His legacy was knowledge, and skill.

The gift he gave was the Bladesong.

But he always remembered what HE was taught:

“The ultimate goal of the teacher…. Kellendill…..is that HIS students would someday surpass him”.
