A Tale of Two Princes
s2 E15

Dhany attends an orgy – to find out about astologers – Pherenikie said that prince Aetenti is better (as she is attractive etc) and not the other as he’s creepy

Prince Haal has been asking about Kyros & DHany

circle head off to meet Sorceror Prince Aetenti – they have to wait till late afternoon, as she had not yet risen (tall & slightly leaning tower) – she does not seem the type to keep secrets – she was oathbound by melati to not spill secrets
negotiations occur and she will only help if they give her one of the Ysr artifacts – the circle leave

next day they go visit Prince Ness – to see if he can’t be more accommodating
he will help but wants either a necromantic spell or Nafarie Half Dead……

That night Kyros is visted in his dreams by Unfettered Eternal Brilliance
Kyros asks for a necromantic spell & they converse about the curse

A few days later he comes back to Kyros and say’s that the curse is on Haven & that Serenity in Steel has some free time and so will come to Planquin & and will travel with the ships.

The Circle head off for a Guild Citidel to free slaves

Doooom & Beaurcracy
s2 E14

Orchid is harassed by the ministry of public works for not having a permit to change the shit.

Kyros & Dhany are hit with a mysterious illness, and are at death’s door by the time that their cries for help are heard in Melati’s house. Orchid has to glow like the sun in order to cure them of their illness (assassin’s fatal touch)

Mahavir goes to the ministry – after Orchid attempts to and then has no idea how to achieve anything, except that money is required. Mahavir disguises himself to try and find out who is dealing with the issue.

Melati turns up at last – manages to use bureaucracy to keep orchid out of trouble

Orchid finishes her working

Dhany met up with her Sorceror Prince & got the name of two Sorceror Prince astrologer’s who might be able to help push the curse aside/do something to make Andy’s luck turn.

(To be tidied later!!)

Back in Planquin the circle discussed their options with regards to Melati’s troubles but no consensus was reached.

Fierce Orchid began a sorcerous working to alter what came out of the plumbing pipes in the lower city. Her aim to change the shit into water and direct it over the lower city and in to the sea. This was going to take some time and so the others began to work on their own goals.

Dhany began her investigations into the illegal trade of humans to fairfolk. Galen popped up and told them the Sapphire Court would be a good place to start. Knowing that they did not yet have the time or resources to travel to such a location, Dhany, Mahavir & Melati flew to a hidden island they’d heard about. They knew that slaves had possibly been kept there but that it had also recently been raided by barbarians. Unfortunately they discovered nothing of interest.

The mysterous astrologer who had offered Melati help with learning who might have cast the curse on the trade deal returned. He declared that the curse was indeed sorcerous, that it came from Planquin and that someone of a princely nature was responsible

Mahavir and Melati spent time trying to learn more about who this person could be. Mahavir learning that Prasad wants the deal to fail. Melati and Kyros visited yet another air elemental, in the hope of gleaming some new information.

Kyros spent his time summoning a Jokun to act as a body guard and made a sword for Melati.

Mahavir also learnt what the Onyx Hawks, a group he had had some dealings with previously, had been up to. Hespiros, the old leader had been killed by Athenais, his niece, and Lysandra, another potential leader was in hiding. Knowing how brutal Athenais was, and how awful the Onyx Hawks had become, though they had never been ‘nice’, Mahavir made the call to assassinate Athenais. Sneaking into her bed chambers he had a nasty surprise when a spirit, later identified as a Bloody Hand, a god of murder, appeared and woke Athenais up. Mahavir was able to get a good stab in, but the Spirit whisked her away before he could finish the job. In the commotion that followed Melati and Kyros, who had been waiting outside just in case, rushed in to help, just as Mahavir chased the remaining goons away. What rumours would now be spread about the circle and would Athenais’s escape prove costly?

As Fierce Orchid’s working began to draw to a close the circle pondered what adventure they might go on next. A timely knock on the door bought Thucala to their attention. She was eager to to go and investigate the White Gold Temple, in the hopes she might find something to help her learn sorcery. She wanted the help of the adventures who had managed to survive the Winter Tomb, supposing that they were God Blooded. She knew of the traps that surrounded the outside, and she supposed that as an Exalted she would be allowed to pass. The circle, slightly wary did agree, she was an outcast dragon blooded, but they still knew the need for caution.

Somewhere in Ys
Interlude

A perfect youth stands surrounded by bronze-masked thralls, his body is tattooed with strange occult symbols and his eyes burn with azure flames. He addresses a cabal of sorcerer-princes, many adorned with rippling inky-black tattoos.
“This ‘Kyros’ and his associates have taken the artifacts of Yoroon Shalal”, His voice is distorted as if echoing up from a great depth, “Artifacts that are essential for the cause”
The assembled sorcerer-princes murmur assent, while monstrous creatures howl in agreement.

Booze, Fortunes & yet more Booze!
s2 E12

With Calibration in full swing most of the circle, partied hard. Melati decided that she would prefer to do business and had an airfolk astrologer read the stars on how well her latest business venture, investing in the fleet to Haven, would go. Accompanied by Kyros and being chided by a very drunk Fierce Orchid he received an answer she did not want to hear. The venture was cursed, until next calibration. This concerned Melati greatly as she had a lot invested on the venture succeeding.

Well into their cups they were approached by another mysterious astrologer, offering to read their future. Melati shared her tale of woe , convinced that a sorcerer must bee the perpetrator, and the astrologer offered his assistance. He would take what details were known and do some research into who might have cast such a powerful curse. The venture was due to leave in 3 months, the astrologer’s research would take at least a month.

Kyros decided that perhaps a renowned airfolk astrologer could help him find Lycaea. The astrologer needed a lot of information to be able to start the search. Kyros attempted to be cagey at first, but after failing utterly at this ended up giving over more information than was perhaps wise. As they left the astrologer, they were approached by a woman identifying herself as Twelve Perfect Wisdoms. Who pointed out that a) Lunars had hidden themselves from astrology and b) everything that had been said had been recorded, including the implication that Kyros was a Solar. She indicated she could remove the offending documents from where they would be stored if the circle when to visit her master Prince Astyon.

Knowing that they couldn’t really say no the circle agreed. Prince Astyon’s palace was located by the central square. She wished to know what the circle’s plans were. The circle had to admit that they currently had none.

With nothing else requiring their attention until the astrologer produced answers, the circle headed back to Blood Cove. For 3 weeks Fierce Orchid worked in healing the sick, while Kyros investigated the ruins. The whole area was a demanse, the ruins a destroyed manse. The demanse was the whole reason the people living there had mutated so much, but it’s isolation and defences were the reason they had remained safe from the sorcerer princes.

The party began to wonder if this might be a good spot to set up a base of operations. Fierce Orchid could reduce the mutations allowing them to safely leave the area for work and send resources back to family while Kyros could build a manse. This however would take a long time to build. The party would have to decide where their priorities lay.

The party waited in the ghosts camp as the ritual was started. The ground soon began to shake violently. Struggling to keep their balance the party soon saw things being to claw their way up from the ash. Zombies. A loud explosion soon followed as something blew the top off the dead volcano.

Knowing that it was imperative that they keep the priest alive so that he could identify the beast that had emerged the party could only stand their ground against the zombies, while the other ghosts battled the beast directly.

Finally the beast was identified <insert name="true">. The party battled against zombies, the chocking ash and the terrible fear from the beast to move forward.

Within the battle field chaos reigned, Dhany, Mahavir and Melati surged ahead as one. The beast sensing an opportunity breathed out Pyreflme And the three dropped to unconsciousness. Fierce Orchid could only press on, priest in tow, knowing that the beast had to be felled before she could offer any assistance to her comrades.

The beast moved to attack and Orchid parried it easily, sensing opportunity she countered, hitting the beast hard. Each time the beast stuck Orchid parried, and when opportunity struck she countered, damaging the beast. Until finally it fell. Orchid breathed a sigh of relief, knowing that it would not rise again for 100s of years.

What few ghosts remained helped her to carry her comrades back the the camp. After a day of rest and what healing could be provided they flew to Palanquin to enjoy the last few days of calibration.

After a month’s journey the party returned to Arqad with a week to go before Calibration.

Excavating The Travelling Palace
S2 E9

The party hit Prince Thassios hard and fast, with Fierce Orchid, Dhany Aag Kathakalli and Melati of the Rising Dawn charging to the front on Stormwind Rider. Kanchana Mahavir, Kyros and Prince Fawziya brought up the rear.

Before they could strike at Prince Thassios the party had to deal with both his pack of Blood Apes as well as his Tomescu guard, which was holding Kyros’s bow. Before the rear guard could even begin to get stuck into the fight the front lines had taken heavy damage. The Blood Apes hit the three of them hard. The Tomescu’s attack quickly followed suit and it was only due to Fierce Orchid’s quick interception of it’s blow that meant Dhany Aag Kathakalli was still standing. .

As the party pressed the attack and were in turn pressed Kyros in a whirl of desperation called forth his power and cast Flight of Brilliant Raptor hitting friend and foe alike. The fire prevented Prince Thassios from getting his spell off. Fighting on through the flames Fierce Orchid finished off the Tomescu,

[To finish think Mahavir finished the prince off?]

Upon looting the corpse they found:

Having now delt with the Sorceror Prince the party set up camp. Fierce Orchid spent time summoning Blood Apes to both dig up parts of the Travelling Palace as well as for protection. Galen spent time exploring their surroundings so that he could warn the party of any pending Fair Folk attack, as the Palace had crashed in the Border Marches. (For in the time that the party spent there, 10 days, the Fair Folk had begun to amass an army to attack.)

The digging Blood Apes had finally found the corpses of those who had been killed when the palace had crashed. Hungry Ghosts bust out wiping out those Blood Apes. The party readied themselves for a fight and attacked. The party dispatched of the ghosts without much effort with Dhany Aag Kathakalli finishing off the Hungry Ghost of Yoroon Shalal. Kyros’ former self.

On Yoroon Shalal’s corpse they found:

Once Galen had returned the party left, for they had everything they needed for now.

Into The Desert
S2 E8

While Kyros stayed behind to interpret the stolen notes, while everyone else headed off to Blood Cove.

Stopping nearby the cove, Kanchana Mahavir snuck in to get a feel for the land. Noting that barely anyone was out and about, only a few people manning the ballista and catapults. After a bit of poking around he realised the majority of the village was sick. Reporting back to the others, everyone agreed that it sounded odd and so approached the village on foot. After a bit of suspicious questioning they were let into see the Elder. While Melati of the Rising Dawn talked to him, Fierce Orchid noted the presence of a disease spirit (Consumption). Once it became clear that the God of Consumption had infected everyone and was blackmailing them for offerings Fierce Orchid couldn’t hold her tongue and addressed the spirit directly. After a failed intimidation, Fierce Orchid summoned her sword and Dhany forced the spirit to materialise by the force of her will, at which point the god backed down as it realised (having infected Melati of the Rising Dawn and Fierce Orchid) what they party was and how much trouble it was in.

As the party were pressed for time they made an initial deal for the spirit to make the consumption less virulent and dangerous, the part would come back and cure everyone and the spirit could go to a more populated region.

The party then headed back to Arqad where they found Kyros in a very sorry state, injured and missing his Power Bow.

Once the others had left, Kyros spent his first day alone in the library using the notes obtained by Mahavir to try and find the location of the travelling palace. After successfully determining the location he headed back to Athanya’s villa where the party were staying.

Once he returned he was accosted by A tall bronze man, dressed in expensive robes and jewellery, the visible patches of bronze skin covered in black tattoos introduced himself as Sorcerer-prince Thassios. He was flanked by two Blood Apes, off to one side was a Tomescu holding a knife to a gagged and badly injured Athanya.

Thassios demanded Kyros’s power bow over otherwise Athanya would be killed, Kyros and seeing no way to save her otherwise he did so. Thassios then demanded the notes which Kryos has been working on, he gave these up too. Kyros asked how Thassios knew that he has the notes and Thassios boasted that one of his demons had noticed Mahavir coming out of the manse with them

After looking at the notes, Thassios magicked a hole in the wall and then flew off on a waiting Agata. Commanding the Blood Apes kill Kyros and to destroy the building. The Tomescu slit Athanya’s throat before following its master. Before Kyros knew what was happening the Blood Apes attacked, knowing that he would not survive he activated his anima power and disappeared. Reappearing a few days later he went and hid out in the stables where the party hid their Agata, waiting for the others to return.

The party headed out towards the crashed flying palace. A months journey through the desert was a daunting task, luckily Galen mysteriously appeared in their hour of need to offer himself as a guide through the desert.

As they got to within a few days of their final destination they spotted a cirrius skiff flying towards them, inside was a dying Prince Fawziya. The party pulled over to help her, to discover that she had been stabbed and that she’d been hit with Assassin’s Fatal Touch. After removing the spell and healing her, something that took several days, she was able to fill the party in on what had happened. She had found the The Travelling Palace, crashed in the desert, and then she’d been attacked by Prince Thassios.

Together they all hatched a plan to take him out as quickly as possible, and to hopefully get Kyros’s power bow back.

The City of Statues
S2 Ep 7

The party then headed off to Arqad with the aim to find out the following;

  • Speak to Kesipho, an expert on the Phoenix Snake
  • To visit Blood Cove
  • To speak to the Dreaming Warrior in the hopes that she would a) potentially know something about Planquin’s city god and b) help Kyros find Lycaea
  • Track down the travelling palace

On discovering that a Sorceror Prince was after the travelling palace Kyros got side tracked, and became consumed with the desire to get to the palace first.

Mahavir therefore broke into her home in order to try and steal her research notes on the palace. After sneaking in past the human guards he accidentally awoke an earth elemental guard. Luckily Mahavir dealt with it just before the human guards entered the room.

He returned back to the party bearing coded notes, hoping that these would be the ones the party would need to find the location of the travelling palace.
