The Four Horsemen

Historian Journal #1

Our adventure started off in the sewers after defeating the Shadow Caster and his minions, and starting up the defense system. After coming up the sewers our adventurers were greeted by half of the Arcane Council with White Ash. They thanked the adventurers for returning the defense system to normal, and gave them a rolled up blanket, not knowing what this gift was Card asked White Ash. He said, “Its a personal oasis.” Card responded,“So what does it do?” White Ash responded by asking his pages to give Card the manual. The pages forgot the manual, and after some searching back at the school returned with the manual. With White Ash’s pages still there the adventurers asked if they could have their newly acquired items identified, which they happily did. EarL the mighty barbarian received: +2 Mithral Shirt, Armlet of Health +2, Elixir of Vision, Ring of Four Winds, Necklace of Warning, and a Commander Chain Shirt. Owen the agile ranger received: Cloak of Resistance +3, Gloves of Dex +2, +2 Loud Composite Longbow of Shock, 20 Sleep Arrows, Hat of Disguise, and a Scroll of Invisibility Purge. Card the sexy sorcerer received: Corrosive Sycle, Crossbow of Knockback, 20 Bolts of Weakening, +2 Boots of Elvenkind, Eternal Wand of (I can’t read my writing), Wand of Enlarge Person, and a Restful Crystal. After our adventurers had all their magic items identified White Ash and his pages disappeared, Card then realized that they didn’t ask White Ash about how to find the brimstone (the whole reason why they were there). They then decided to head into town to buy and sell magic gear. They had noticed walking around town that there was an airship docked, intrigued by this our adventurers tried to head up to it. The guard at the wouldn’t let them on, since it wasn’t a school day (he knew they were “students” from before). Card had asked, “Well where’s the Captain of this ship then?” The Guard responded, “Well I believe she went to the Inn.” So our adventurers started to head to the Inn, when they realized that there was a loud booming sound coming from the Southwest. They looked around to see how people were reacting, and everyone was moving around like it was a normal day. So our adventurers assumed that this was nothing of importance. When our adventurers came to the Inn it was all quiet and somber, it appeared as someone has just died. They looked around the Inn and noticed that their new friend Captain Zeta Jones was here, and that the airship was hers. They were talking and catching up with one another when the adventures noticed that their cohorts were here crying. They had lost their brother Thuug in the last battle. Morg came rampaging up to Owen and started yelling at him/them about how they did nothing to save their brother, and how they didn’t even need to be down there. Then ROG drunkenly spoke, for the first time ever, to EarL yelling and swearing at him. EarL didn’t liked to be told what to do or what he did wrong, so he tried to smack down ROG but his hand was stopped in mid air. He then tried to yell at ROG, to make him obey but nothing came out. Then the three brothers carrying Thuug then left the adventurers and returned back to the Revengencers Camp. Our adventurers then headed outside to catch the brothers, but they were already gone. They then heard an old man laughing they went up to him to see what his problem was. He was the old man from the Cave of Souls, who was “all knowing”, he had said, “There are two paths laid before you, one that leads to glory and one that leads to folly.” Our adventurers were confused by this and asked what he meant. The old man began to laugh again, “It is up to you to decide your destiny, for it is not written yet…” He then walked away and disappeared. The adventurers thinking about this decided to not chase after their cohorts, and continue on their journey. So they headed back into the Inn were EarL and Card went off to bed, and Captain Zeta Jones and Owen stayed down to have some drinks. Owen was curious about who had recently died and found out that it was Barty, the man that snuck him into Arcanix. The bartender then asked if Owen could play at the reception tomorrow, which Owen said he would.

The next day everyone was looking nice for the reception, and Owen began to play. Although fate would have it that he needed to take a shit. He was able to hold it in, that is until the very end where he shitted in his pants. The music had stopped and he whispered (Ring of Sound) to his friends, “I think I shat my pants.” To which everyone at the reception heard and began laughing/running away. EarL then stood up and began to clap and said, “Now this is a party!!!” After Owen got all cleaned up and everyone was ready to leave, they continued to here this booming sound and it was getting louder. So our adventurers decided to head to the Southwest to investigate. They got out of the city gates, and the guards told them that they had some gifts from the Peasants. They had all received 1800gp and a bunch of other unique items which they sold in town. They then headed to the Southwest again, and met a strange fellow blowing up giant rocks. Card tried to send him a message, but he was just being ignored. Then EarL decided to throw rocks at him, each one he threw was being blown out of the sky. The mystery man then pointed to a big rock which EarL then lifted up and threw, exploding in mid-air. The man then pointed to two big rocks, EarL lifted and threw them, exploding in mid-air. The man then pointed to three big rocks, EarL lifted these and threw them, exploding in mid-air. The man spoke, “Hmmmm, you might be strong enough to help me; would you?” Card asked, “Well who are you?” Tim responded, “Well I am Tim, and I need help fixing my ship; will you help?” EarL responded, “Well yea, no problem.” “Excellent follow me.” He took the adventurers to a strange looking a circle and then teleported them to the heavens.

When the adventurers got there they saw four more men dressed in red in a circle around them. They then followed Tim down a long staircase, and at the end they saw a vast city made of bronze. They continued to follow him to his office, where he explained where they were and showed them a map of the Dyson Sphere. Tim told them about the problem they were having with their ship, and how his son Tizoc had went down to try and fix it. He went on to say how his son has never returned and if they could, find him. With this new quest our adventurers head down to the city to fix the problem. Although our adventurers couldn’t resist trying some ethnic food, and some ethnic women… The next day Owen and Card went looking for EarL, for the last they saw he was plowing over a woman with another woman hanging on him from the front. EarL then emerge from a giant hole behind them with the two women strapped to his back. With them being all together they headed to the engineering area to speak with Barduc Herlandul, the head engineer. When they met him he was crying about how his friends that he “made” had turned on him, and how they were attacking him. Hearing this Owen said, “Well why don’t you make new friends?” EarL then chuckled at the question, after hearing this Barduc went running off crying. They then looked around to see how they could get down into the engineering area, where the cogs where at, and found a map showing them the way. They went down to this area and crossed a room full of rotating cogs. EarL made it across the room and was met by a locked door, so he did what he always did, try and break down the door. On contact with the door, a rock crusher dropped down infront of the door, and five Clockroaches appeared. Our adventurers made quick work of four of them, and the other ran away. With the door still being blocked by a rock crusher, Owen went looking for the Clockroach that got away, since he figured out that they all needed to die for the door to be accessible again. Although things didn’t go as planned for Owen, for he slipped on a gear and fell into a rock crusher. EarL and Card seeing their friend in danger tried to rescue him, but fell into the rock crusher themselves. Card being smart then tried to teleport them out of the rock crusher, but Owen could not be reached. So Owen ended up being crushed to a pulp, and got revived underneath the room by his Crystal Rose. Owen now revived had found a new way through this room, and told everyone to come down. So Card teleported down, and offered EarL to be brought down with but he declined (EarL was set on killing the last Clockroch). The last Clockroach appeared and EarL threw his greataxe and sliced it in two, with his axe landing into one of the rock crushers. The cog filled room began to tremble from the fact that the axe was preventing them to rotate. EarL then smashed through the floor, and fell to the bottom. He then caught up with Owen and Card, and they continued down the path. They were feeling tired, and since they saw no danger decided to sleep in their Personal Oasis.

Our adventurers woke up after a full nights rest, and continued down the path before them. They then spotted what appeared to be two lion constructs, which began to attack them. So our adventurers fought back, and where dealing good damage when out of the cog wall to their right came two Clockwork Menders, which repaired the lions. Then the adventurers went all out and destroyed the lions. They then turned to the cog wall which they needed to get up, Card being the tricky sorcerer he is teleported them to the top. Although it worked, they were on a conveyor belt and where knocked into the wall, and fell down. After falling, they decided that they where going to need to climb this wall….
