  3. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 12/23 and 12/30] Ava was no longer outside my door in the morning, but I found her on the dock as we made our way off the gangplank. She was sitting there, whispering to herself, the same phrase over and over. It sounded like the same language as the previous night, but this time I couldn’t translate it myself. She didn’t notice me at first; she seemed like she was in some sort of trance. Thelonia approached and informed us that a horde of shadow minions had appeared on the opposite coast, also about a day from the forest.

  5. It is late in the night, when quiet blankets the bright and sharp and leaves the world solemn. Top of Bottle stares out the window, furred cheek pressed against the glass. This time of night is when people fall into night-wandering and deep-thinking, but there is no one outside to observe. His companions are all exhausted. It is very likely that they are now resting. He can imagine Siscia snoring away against a pillow, a bottle of wine kicked off the bed. Cedric, either passed out or fretting himself into a lack of sleep which he will regret the next day. Pif with one eye open, ready to tiptoe

    Hey all! With more and more people getting into fractals, and as many new people start doing challenge mote fractals (CMs) regularly, I would like to host a Fractal Workshop this Saturday at 9:30pm EDT (1.5h after reset) to clear some things up for new people, and to hopefully help people already doing CMs see areas where they can strive for more improvement! I will be streaming in a voice chat in Discord, so no need to be in game to listen in! Topics I will be discussing: Fractal Basics: Basic mechanics, Fractal Masteries and potions, Agony Resistance, Personal Fractal

  7. The warforged known as Shaper stood outside a room he had spent months in, and stared at the door. He was difficult to read, of course. There were no particular features to his face; His head was constructed in the form of a permanent helmet, with no mouth and thin slits for eyes that never deformed to show emotion of any kind. Somehow, though, the way that he stood hesitantly at the door suggested an anxiety and trepidation that read clearly to any that looked on, until eventually his metal fist reached up and rapped sharply at the door. After a moment, footsteps approached the

  8. Everything is wrong. There were cracks in the group before what happened to Eli, and he had been trying to work on mending them... but since he has been gone those cracks have grown in to deep fissures that may never be repaired. Shaper expected the anger from Eli, deserved it even. Everything had gone sideways and it was because Shaper had gambled and lost. Gambled... with the life of one of the people he had been tasked with protecting by the guild... as if it was a game. Shaper didn't really need to sleep. Even when he was in his inactive "restful" state his mind never shut

  9. [continued from previous post] Maeric took a few moments to gather his crew, and then he was out the door. Lionel, Nion, Scylla, Pif, and I followed behind him; Siscia wanted to stay behind to go see Eli. I don’t know where Duriel and Top of Bottle went; I lost sight of them. We could see more and more people who looked like they were from other adventurer’s guilds rushing around looking busy as we descended toward Lower Sharn. There were also an increasing number of guards posted everywhere. Some of them tried to stop us, but Maeric pulled out a piece of paper that app

Morgrave University Biannual Review Meeting “Grayfuller’s GPA’s only a 3.6?” asked Unaatris Droverson, Professor of Transmutation. “I’d have expected higher from him.” “He received a D in my Abjuration class,” clarified Quihana Milner. “Barely even got that. I think my six-year-old daughter has more talent for Abjuration than he does. But, from what I understand, he’s gotten an A in everything else.” “Who needs Abjuration anyway?” commented Roshen, in a tone that suggested that this was meant to be taken as a joke but that he might not have been to

  11. Recap 6/10/20 There's Something In the Water.... So, there we were in Scylla’s mom’s house. The baby-faced squirrel had made us all feel very, very sleepy. Apparently, that was some potent knock-out mojo because I am pretty sure we all had really wacky, realistic dreams. I kinda think they weren’t so much dreams as something in our heads telling us things we maybe didn’t want to know. When I came to in the morning, after a very upsetting-but-somehow-reassuring encounter with Reylana and then Eli, the whole party was recovering from that “rest.” Nion and Lionel were

  12. At some point in Trolanport This sunny little patch of soil is perfect. It's hidden between the trees in the park, but still has room for growing. Top of Bottle digs a little hole with a gardening spade. "You were not a nice man," he scolds. He pours the dreadlocks into the dirt. He pats them into a neat pile, then packs soil on top. "I have not forgiven you for what you did to Connah and for using a lightning bolt to hurt Cedric. And I absolutely do not forgive you for breaking our promise." The man had said he had as many lives as he did dreadlocks.

Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 3/10, 3/17, and 3/31] We received a message the next morning requesting our presence at the guild hall; it wasn’t as if we weren’t planning to go there anyway, but Kal seemed impatient. Before we left, though, I talked to Delphine again. She was still directing everything; it looked like progress had been made since last night, but there was still a lot of work to do. Delphine herself looked like she hadn’t slept. I started to say goodbye and basically ended up awkwardly confessing that I like her. She’s spent so much energy chasing af

    Dances with Demons Title Runs Hey y'all! I know sometimes it feels there's just not enough interest within rise to get your daily fractal clears or perhaps your schedule just doesn't line up with the few events we have. For those that are willing to venture out into the world of t4 lfgs you have probably noticed that nearly every lfg relating to CMs is asking for DwD as the new version of "kill proof". DwD stands for "Dances with Demons" which is the title earned from completing a group-wide no death run on the Sunqua peak CM. Having this title will automatically get you into just a

  22. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 8/19] I had pretty much just gotten to sleep when someone came around banging on the doors to wake everyone up. It wasn’t even dawn yet. As I trudged toward the common area, I noticed an envelope that had been slipped under the door at some point. There was no writing on the outside; I looked inside and found a sample of hair and blood—I think probably mine. I groaned: it was going to be one of those days, wasn’t it? Meanwhile, something was going on with the cowboys downstairs. I wasn’t totally able to follow all of what w

  23. Scene - Sometime just prior to sunset, in the camp at the Snake's Mouth (the swirling pool) Duriel lies on their back in the tall shrubbery in the deep shade, arms resting on elbows, forearms slightly raised- wrists relaxed. A thin sheet of sweat covers their brow but they seem mostly content in the humid heat. “Can we have a moment to talk?” a Message breaks through to Duriel, from Nion, who is further away from the camp currently. He subtly motions Duriel over to a shady spot quite a ways from camp, around some thick vegetation which would hide them quite well from t

  24. Hey everyone, I hope this counts as art since I drew the characters and did a bit of editing with it. Recently Anime Expo had their convention via Twitch streams and a few friends were reacting to it. I thought it'd be cool to see them animated in little chibi forms while experiencing the event so if you have a few minutes, come take a watch!

  25. Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal Not long after I finished my report, Nion came to talk to me, filling me in on what I missed this afternoon, among other things. Nion, Lionel, and some others went to see Prof. Fandisqas, to whom they had given the Dragon’s Blood sample earlier, to follow up on what had happened in Lower Sharn this morning. The sample of Aureon-water collected this morning seemed to be fading in potency—which is concerning—but it still worked. Prof. Fandisqas had some corrupted rats, and she had observed that they seemed to become sluggish in the dark, which is definit

  26. [continued from Cedric’s previous report] When I returned to the party, I found Lionel looking for Sofia, to Pif’s amusement. We didn’t find her right away. We did come across Rhea, who was addressing a big crowd about how the fight for Lower Sharn was almost won, hyping them up. As we navigated the crowd, someone grabbed Lionel, who looked back to see that Sofia had found him first. Sofia was wearing the emblem of her sister’s guild, the Knights of the Ashen Vale, a guild which she had previously told us she would avoid at all costs. But she seemed much more upbeat tha

  27. Duriel sits on their floor studying the unrolled cloth- lying in a neat line are eight folded pieces of fine velium. Each folded piece is tied with red cord and sealed with black wax- the wax is marked with a single letter- N, L, E, C, S, S, P, Š. They lick their lips slightly as the consider their choices- “Where the will of the masters cannot be resisted, it can be subverted.” They lean back against their bed’s frame and close their eyes, their breathing deepens and a long silence fills the room. Eventually their left eyelid flickers, twitches, and two long antennae push outwa

As the party wandered the streets of Sharn gazing at the slim amount of wares available for sale, Pif glanced over her latest hit request (a few hundred gold for the head of a noble from House Phiarlan; she wondered if she could get this done before the party leaves Sharn). Eli’s outburst echoed in her mind, weaving through her thoughts like a snake. She contemplated a question that had been on her mind since she was in the Academy: what is a life worth? How does one make their life worthy? In the Academy, Pif was taught a life meant nothing. Like weapons, gold, jewelry, men, a lif

She grabbed a berry bush by its chin and laughed, “We’re going to find the puppiiiiiiiiiies!” The bush nodded happily, laughing along with her. It replied in Shaper’s voice, “That is the mission, you’re right!” Siscia somersaulted twice and then jumped to her feet. Her friends stood in front of her, weapons drawn. One was a giant rabbit. Behind her, the playful yapping of young pups echoed through the forest. She grabbed at the rabbit’s bow and tried to block Nion, who readied a shimmering magic o

  30. Duriel sits on the edge of their bed, armor off, arms bare. They patiently run the whetstone down the edge of a blade that never really needs sharpening. From time to time, they glance over at the desk- at the crumpled pages and spilt ink. Time passes with no sound but steady breathing and stone against not-steel. One long look down the edge and Duriel sighs- setting the blade down she returns to the desk, takes quill in hand and begins to write a fresh letter. Duriel looks at the three letters- and prepares them for delivery- once sea

  34. They are risky cos they are "naked". For example, i play options a lot. There are Puts and Calls. If I own 100 shares of company A, and its worth $10 a share, i can sell a Call option for $11 that expires in the future. If the stock doesn't go to $11, the call expires worthless. If it does, I lose my stock, but i get $11 a share plus the premium i got when i sold the call. This is a "covered" call, cos I own the stock, so I can deliver said stock no matter what happens. Now, if I sold $11 calls, and didn't own the stock, I could be at a huge risk. Say t

Waiting for me back at the guild hall was the bulky guy from my squirrel dream, the one who kept calling me “lord.” His name is Finnian and he and “his men” have been sent by House Cannith to act as my guards/escort. They have leads on the location of Kirin’s tome, which is, sure enough, the Spire. Finnian says this is a place “that hasn’t existed in a thousand years,” whatever that means, but they have

Littered bottles, broken glass, and loose debris has all been picked up and dealt with.

Excerpt from Cedric’s Journal [Session Notes 9/2, 9/9, 9/16] Come morning, as we got up and got ourselves ready to go, Duriel drew us a map and walked us through what we might expect to find in their family’s lair. Of particular note was that the purebloods would be highly resistant to magic—a fact which I wish had been pointed out to me the previous night, so that I could better prepare for it—and that Duriel’s grandfather was an abomination who had empowered himself through ritual and sacrifice. According to Duriel, it was a safe assumption that everyone was going to be hostile

She wore a slight smile upon her lips, but she looked tired. Siscia was almost never truly tired, but the morning had been more complicated than she could have imagined. She flopped onto her bed and a faint cloud of dust puffed up from the barely-used mattress.
