Return to Eveningstar

The party returned to Eveningstar from their recent assignment via Arabel. On the way into Eveningstar, Jemma wanted to stop to give young Anna some candy she bought in Arabel. Then it was on to see Lord Tessaril Winter. King Azoun was also with Lord Tessaril, awaiting our return. He was glad the party retrieved his dagger, but would not take it from us. Lord Tessaril did that on our way out. Instead, the King invited us to Suzail for his birthday party! Nina, being a paladin from Suzail, told us it was a very prestigious event and that only the top ranks were invited. The King said the party would be held at Lord Partic Thistle's.

Events as written by the GM:
The knocks wake each of you almost at the same time.

The cock hasn't crowed and it's pitch dark outside your windows. Each of you rouse yourselves from slumber to make out the knock becoming a pounding on your door. Someone curses and its answered a throaty voice of a dwarf to shut up.

"Wake up! You're summoned to the high council of Barrak Varr. Quickly now. Don't keep them waiting! Dress. Collect all your belongings as well!" The message is the same to each of you, if varied only in the gruff or emphasis of the pounding on your door.

Outside your room waits two armed dwarves, one less so than the other, both holding lanterns. You see others at your…

Cat Summoning Tables

As a follow up to my Cat Summoner idea, I compiled this list from the various AD&D 2e Monstrous Manual and Compendiums (Compendia?). "Normal" cats would stick more to the spirit of the idea, but I also included optional monsters with cat parts. The list goes up to level 13, but the Monster Summoning spells only go to level 7, so that's where I stopped. To give you a taste of the rest, the only monster I listed at Level 13 is a Render. I, personally, would consider summoning a Render to either be a final act of life-or-death desperation or an act of Chaotic Evil. Enjoy!
Monster Summoning 1 (Level 3 Spell) Level 1 Cat, Crypt : Normal (Compendium 2) Cat, Small: Domestic Cat, Small: Wild Cat, Winged: Lesser (Compendium 1)
(Optional) Tiger Squirrel
Monster Summoning 2 (Level 4 Spell) Level 2 Cat, Great: Giant Lynx Cat, Winged: Tressym (Compendium 1) (Optional) Feystag (Compendium 1) (Optional) Tabaxi
Monster Summoning 3 (Level 5 Spell) Level 3 Cat, Great: Cheetah Cat, Great: L…

The Amazing Adventures of Jemmabink, the very same adventures that encouraged me to leave the comforts of the Underdark and travel to the World Above, these adventures are no more easy to believe now that I live them side-by-side with the legend Jemmabink herself.

The lock on the iron door would not yield to our key, and we weren't quite ready to force it. We retraced our steps back to the antechamber to try another route. There was a door ajar on the east wall, just the way we left it. Jemmabink and Nina opened the door to a hallway. The hallway had two doors across from each other nearby and another two further on. The second door to the south lined up with the iron door we couldn't open. At its end, the hallway turned south.
When the figh…

Cat Summoner

What is the feasibility/playability of a Summoner who only summoned cats? I bet you could find different strength cats in various monster books to equate to every summoning spell: House cats, lynx, bobcat, cougar, cheetah, jaguar, leopard, lion, tiger, sabertooth, etc.I think it would be fun, but I'm a big cat fan (that is, a fan of cats larger than house cats).

The party was four weeks into their stay at Barak Varr after finding the latest talisman. Vaervenshyael was hungry a lot. She had put on over 5 lbs, while still doing all the activity she was used to doing. Some mornings she woke up mad. Very mad.

On the day she thought she might finally talk the party into returning to Padua (after all, Tankred's sword would not be finished for months yet), the dwarf guard entered the inn where the party was staying and requested the party join them at the gates to the Temple of Verena. Apparently the gates had been closed for some time, and the party members were the last ones seen coming or goi…

Tankred kicked open yet another set of double doors. Inside was a pile of bones with a seat on top. In the seat was a humanoid in disturbing armor, borne by those Chosen of Chaos. The creature's helmet was shaped like the visage of Abdul Al Shar. He exuded chaos and terror. Johann and Vaervenshyael failed their terror tests. Tankred and Wilhelm attacked.

Before the battle was over, Vaervenshyael failed 3 Terror tests, which lead to 3 Insanity Points, and 1 mental disability. For the disability, she rolled Host of Fiends. She will have to pass a Willpower test daily or be taken over by an Aspect of Khorne! This fits in perfectly with the campaign and her background.

After Tankred unleased Ulric's Fury and Wilh…
