RttToEE - Agents of the Yaun-Ti
5th Hammer, 1372DR (Year of Wild Magic)
Summoned from around Faerun you meet in secret, in a small walled manor in Sembia, a stones throw away from the border of Cormyr. Within the bowels of this snake-infested manor you report for your latest assignment to your Yaun-Ti master Vvranthis. A snake-headed Abomination of great cunning and influence, Vvranthis has been charged with the infiltration of Cormyr as it continues it's recovery from the recent loss of it's king and an invasion of humanoids.
Vvranthis whose serpentine body lays coiled around a Yaun-Ti resting pole gazes evenly at you, as you shape shifts from the serpent form required to enter this hidden room to your normal humanoid bodies. Bowing in acknowledge of both the superiority of his form and position you remain silent as you eagerly await your next assignment.
"We are pleased with your efforts on behalf of the Vrael Olo*" he says with a marked sibilance due to his forked tongue.
* Vrael Olo is what the Yaun-Ti call their race.
"You have been chosen for a special assignment. You will infiltrate an ancient Cult whose plans are at odds with our own. There you will rise to positions of authority so as to discover the true goals of this cult."
"To enable you to coordinate your efforts and to keep in touch with us, you will be given a special symbionts to facilitate communication. Use of the symbionts is physically draining, and it will only allow you to communicate with symbionts from the same spawning pool, so use it sparingly. You will be expected to contact us on a weekly basis to inform us of your progress and of any developments."
"Further information will be given to you by Zathris" As Vvranthis speaks the name of Zathris one of the many serpents that form the sinuous carpet which covers the floor of this room, transforms into his Pure Blood form.
Seemingly dismissing you from his attention Vvranthis closes his eyes and coils himself more fully around the resting pole and sinks into apparent slumber.
Gesturing for you to follow him away from the slumbering abomination, you gather around a wooden table and sit yourselves down in chairs more suitable to your humanoid forms and listen as Zathris provides you more information.
Cult of the Elder Elemental Eye
After the symbionts are inserted into your intestinal tract and you are debriefed by Zathris you spend the next two waiting to be infiltrated into the Cults Head Quarters.
8th Hammer, 1372DR (Year of Wild Magic)
Smuggled from Sembia through High Dale to Cormyr you travel to Thunderstone to meet up with two wagons carrying supplies bound for the temple. Expected by the leader of the small caravan you mingle with the other guards and new recruits and quickly fall into a routine of travel and guard duty. Heading North East into the Thunder Peaks you travel for a day along the road before turning off onto a mountain trail which heads up further in the mountains.
Asking a few discreet questions you learn that the road leads to a place called Rastor. Rastor is a rough little community which has a population of just over a hundred. Apparently Rastor is an unusual place in that the mainly Human and Dwarven population lives in apparent peace with a local tribe of Orcs. As such Rastor is home to both Orcs and Half Orc's.
Travelling for another hour the mountain trail brings you closer and closer to your goal, the dormant volcano called Stalagos which houses the hidden temple. Further on the path divides in two. Stopping briefly the small party is divided in two and the wagons (with people in tow) continue on to the two entrances of The Temple of All Consumption.

Gilgalis quickly takes an assessment of the situation. It seems odd that he would be brought before the high priestess alone, this indicates that there is something special she has in mind for him. Kelashein herself seems to be an authoritative personality of little humor, at least on the surface. In time perhaps, as he gains her trust, he can change that. In any case, now is the time for him to make a good first impression.
Gilgalis bows low to the high priestess. "My lady. I hope that I shall prove to be of assistance. If it is not too bold to ask, for what reason have you honored me with with this personal audience?"

Kenneth bows slightly to the fat man, who he assumes will be his boss at the Air Temple - for the moment.
"Kenneth Spire, at your service" he says. "I am a sorcerer of sorts, and I seek employment with potential for advancement. Air is life" (he says the last in Auran) "and when I heard about the Air Temple I realized that this cult to the most powerful of elements was just what I was looking for. I am pleased to see that you associate youselves with beings of power" (indicating the imagery on the walls). "I am a good planner and hope to serve you in many capacities. And you are?"

Bresh gives his best smile. "This is already starting out better than I expected," he thinks to himself. He looks over the priestess' arm for a moment trying to figure out the cause and whether he's ever heard the name Tessimon before.Originally Posted by Lord_Raven88
"Mistress, (he gives small bow and moves to kiss her hand) I am here to serve you in whatever needs you may have."

When he meets John, he responds, "I do not plan on being anywhere near her bad side, although from what I saw, she has none."
Bresh will follow John and get settled in. He'll spend the next week learning what he can about the place and people of the Fire Temple area, and trying to earn their trust. Gather Information +11, Knowledge (local, history) +8, Knowledge (arcana, dungeoneering, geography, history, the planes) +4, Bardic Knowledge +9, Diplomacy +14, Bluff +11, Sense Motive +7. If it helps he'll also try to entertain as he can with his pan pipes. Perform (wind instrument) +13. I think that covers it.

Kenneth nods and replies in Auran, forming the whistling sounds carefully "You are wise to judge a man by his deeds rather than his words. What will be my first assignment?"Originally Posted by Lord_Raven88

Analya scans the crowd briefly as she steps into the room. Her eyes fall last upon the leader of the group. She walks forward and stops at a respectable distance, a slightly curled smile upon her lips. "I am Analya," she tells the tall, imposing man her name. "I hope I will enjoying working for you."Originally Posted by Lord_Raven88

While the high priestess' reaction was somewhat disappointing, it seemed that he had at least managed to pierce the surface of her personality and make a good impression on her. He smiles slightly and gives her a small nod. "We all need others; no mortal can live in this world completely alone. I believe that the temple of water is the place for me; water sustains life, both plant and animal, its power is undeniable. As for what I can offer you, my lady. I am afraid I am not one for violence and conflict, why kill an enemy when you could instead turn them to your side? If there is any issue which you wish to solve without violence, I will do my utmost to fulfill your desire.”

Jerome surveys the room quickly, noting the contents. As the rat-man comes into view, he supresses any emotion or movement.
"Master Eeridik, I am here to pledge my services to you, what are your orders?"
