    GM: I think you guys will easily get to paragon tier before the end of this adventure. Not sure about epic though.

    *EDIT* Of course I hope that doesn't take another two years.

    Probably won't get it updated until this weekend.

    OOC: I believe it

    Note: Gensai's Iaido-like style is for color purposes only. He is wielding one weapon and his off-hand is free. But, I think my color description makes more sense for swordmage abilities. Here's what the Periapt of Cascading Health looks like.

    OOC: I'll wait for everyone to report on their level-up (though I won't wait for approval). BTW: What's the story with renau1g. Anyone know where he's gone to? I haven't combed the boards to see what his plans were.

  6. #526
    OOC: Please don't wait for me. I'm currently traveling (not having access to many of my bound books, so updating the power will take a while.

  7. #527
    OOC: He said he was going to be out of town for the first two weeks of July, and then he had a work conference in the third week. So, I expect him back any day now.

  8. #528
    OOC: I'm back, thanks for your patience HMG and all. I am like 200 xp away from level 10, but I'm not going to bump it up, might as well stay with the group here at least. And I don't want to spend the time to do another level up right now (after doing Kane's I spent an hour and still am not complete....) so I'm all set to go

    GM: Welcome back renau1g! If you haven't taken the time to do so already, I would go back to the point where you left off and read through what's happened since. Things have been pretty slow, so I don't think you missed much.

    I'm also picking up a tradition of posting a synopsis at the end of my updates. It will get lengthy, but I will put the latest info in yellow, so you can identify it quickly.

    Story Outline

    If you want to do this quickly, just click on the links below and read ALL spoilers

      • Talon (Shifter Druid/Ranger)

      • and disables a glyph of warding powered by an electric crystal

      • Dwarven heir exiles himself and dies leaving a son who is clueless as to his heritage
      • Old blue dragon is killed by two sister green dragons, who now have a daughter (that's three green dragons on the loose).
      • The old blue dragon's son wants to avenge his father's death, but doesn't want to take the risk, so he offers the job to the adventurers.
      • Hankel (the clueless dwarven heir) is being held in the prisons below the blue dragon's lair
      • Wer Vhisar has pressed you into his service to light the dwarven lighthouse, kill the green dragons, re-seat Hankel on the throne at Rioc Parel, and transplant Wer Vhisar's father's diffusion.

    Tikchik offers to stand watch all rest as even while the insectoid is at rest he is never truly caught unawares. The thrik-kreen was clearly uncomfortable talking with the great wyrm and had done his best to move into the shadows, although even he didn't think that he'd escape the dragon unnoticed.

    OOC: Ok, All caught up. That was a lot of cool interesting reading, great job HMG. The synopsis helped a lot to figure things out, as we probably won't RP out the group expaining every detail to Sheng & Tikchik in the interest of time, so this is probably good to assume that during the rest they brought us up to speed.
