"Unfortunately, though the shards vary in size, the long side would be about a foot or two at most. Still, when you think about putting them all together, that's one enormous gem."
"Honestly, I wasn't paying any attention to the storytelling. That's not really my business. I made my last employer wet himself when I asked him a few simple questions. Either way, let's hurry up and do everything we can to find this rock. I'll put my best efforts forth in findin' it."

"If you are all set, then I will take my leave and go help the next group," Rayne offers.

"This is going to be quite a challenge! The long journey to the Badlands will be the easy part. The mystery of finding the shard will be much harder, and we will have to discuss among ourselves how to go about it. One more question, Rayne. Do you know what the shard looks like? If we are not sure where to look, will we at least be able to recognize it when we have found it?"
 
"It is a large phylactery fragment, a massive gem swirling with tempestuous air elemental energies, but I would say that the shard's immunity to Divinations may be the best way to identify it. If you have a good candidate and you test a Divination spell on it and it fails, then it is probably the shard."

"Hmmm... clever. Almayce, I trust you would have no difficulty finding a suitable divination magic to use? Anyway, thanks for your help."

Nurlan has no further questions for Rayne. If anyone else does, ask now. If not, we'll move to planning amongst ourselves.

Talbin chips in on the discussion: "So we know something like.. a very general area where the shard could be found. Are there any known settlements, tribes or something like that in that area? Maybe they know more about it or have some old wives tale about the shard. Also, I think we should take good care to protect ourselves from the weather. I think it can get pretty rough with big winds, storms maybe aeven hurricanes!
Also we seriously need to think about food.
" and Talbin pauses a few seconds as if to stress the importance of that particular subject " Personally, for travels, I just take some trail rations with me but on a jouerney as long as this something more tasty would be nice. Speaking of that, do we have any idea how long we will be traveling to these lands?" Then talbin trails back to the subject of food and starts suggesting a seemingly endless list of meals and recipes.

Tor looks around the assembled group, trying to decide how best he can help by using his mount spell.

Talbin is allready mounted, albeit only on a mule. The others do not seem to be, and Tor is faster on his feet than any of the others. In fact, he could carry a heavier load and still keep up if the group remains on foot.

"Do we intend to remain mostly on foot? Also, does anyone have one of those magic bag things to help carry all of the supplies we might need?"

"I left my horse back in Orussus. We figured out it would be too slow to ride here. We should be able to buy horses for the trip. Unless we stop by Orussus on the way, in which case I'd be happy to pick up Lordy. It's going to be a very long trip, so we should be travelling mounted."
 
(OOC: You may want to look at methods of faster transportation as well, in hopes of not losing the race to the cultists. Does anyone in this group have level 3 spells?)

"If we are to ride, can someone recommend a good horsetrader in this city so I can purchase a mount?" asks Devlin.

Tor can move quickly if necessary, but has no spells higher than level 1, and can't really do much for the group as a whole.

OOC: This is the group:
OOC:

Almayce (Cleric 3 /Wizard 3/Mystic Theurge 1) [Xael]
Devlin Magruder (Rogue 6) [Dungannon]
Nurlan (Bard 4 /Fighter 1) [Orsal]
Tor (Barbarian 2/Fighter 2/Sorcerer 1) [Patlin]
Gur Chuck-Chuck (Ranger 4) [Creamsteak]
Talbin "Red" Longstrider(Rogue 4)

So, no, no 3rd level spells until Almayce gains another level. And I can't think of a faster way to travel than mounts for everyone.
 
(OOC: @Orsal--Hmm, well if you can think of some other fast way, let me know, but if not, you may want to wait until two days from now and bum a Teleport + Phantom Steed from her like the lowest level group is doing. It can turn what might have been a journey of nearly a year into less than a week.

@Creamsteak--That would be me, true for all the shards except Sylvan. You haven't seen me as much as any of the other threads because this is the only one where an NPC is not the rep)
 
(OOC: I think each Teleport only shaves 27 days or so off the trip assuming lightly encumbered Light Warhorses. If rode into exhaustion, the Phantom Steeds can shave a similar amount, or more if it's over difficult terrain. It does add up though)

"Wait, how far do we need to travel? I don't think I've been that far, and I spent the last two years traveling this world. What do these wizards expect to happen? Is this end of the world a thousand years away or something? Shouldn't they have mumbled on and on about some secret passage that let's you travel some few thousand miles across the world... you know, like the one that crazed Sullivan was looking for, right Devlin? Or was that another job?"

Devlin looks over at Gur. "I don't think Sullivan found a tunnel across the world, merely a mine that went too far down into the realm of the dark elves."
