A courier comes to the party and says: "Saviors of Parsan and company yes? I have a message for you from the king, appears to be a summons of sort! Seems important." You go to the local lordship in Parsan, where the king resides. You see that it is a large gate as well as a pathway leading up a cliff face with a large green lawn and symmetrical trees. There are two guards that stand at the gate. A birdkhan and a human. You walk up the enterance and find the pathway is surprisingly long, passing several perfectly symmetrical trees adjacent to one another in straight line. You see there is a long and tall set of doors which are also rather narrow for their height. There stands two statues, one of a bear, and the other an owl appearing menacing. There stands a keeper of the door, who appears to be some sort of a human dressed in fancy clothing, raising a brow. "Ah yes, saviors of Parsan, come this way, Lorde Jaaren has been expecting you." He leads you into a regal palace filled with marble, gold, tapestry, rugs, candelabras and great paintings of olde, and even some artifacts looking like they belonged more to a museum than a lorde. He walked forward and took a sudden left turn into the west wing. "Come this way please." You look around and peer at a large statue beside you, a falcon with a deathly glare over it and claws extended. You walk past a long red rug with many other paintings, this time of family member, including one of Jage, lord of Gatin Island in his familiar miserable mug. He opens a set of doors and has them opened and propped up with a couple of smaller statues to keep the doors open. "Introducing his lordeship, ruler of Parsan, younger brother of Jage, Lord of Gatin Island! Jaaren! Come forward adventurers of Parsan for Jaaren himself has summoned you." Jaaren, who couldn't be older than 15, sitting on a throne far too big for him, and a large coat covering him well as well as snacks around him and empty platters, yet he looks frail and skinny. "Come this way, King is Jaaren, brother of Jage, lord of Gatin Island." Ressurecting a dragon local tribe of men that wants to resurrect an ice dragon "Peer upon this." He shows you a large tooth that has runes painted all throughout it. "Do you know what this is?" "These runes are of necromancers. You can see that here, here, and here. Not only that, the paint being mixed in blood is a good indicator as well. Now why do you think this would be?" tribe must be stopped, lest that we enter a new winter of death till it is vanquished "Ice dragon's tooth is an ice dragon because it possesses no char along the tooth but in fact abrasion, as if it had been impacted with great ice storms inside its mouth." Must make a trip to Mystonia to find out where the tribe is. Go speak to the King of Mystonia, Fangur. King of Parsan writes a writ of demand to speak with the King of Mystonia, Fangur about the tribe's location of the ice dragon. "Do you take me for some peon incapable of seeing my plight? Certainly our families will pay hansomly for this favor. But no hand giveth lest ye show your worth." "Bertraan, escort them out! Afterword, I am hungry, and could use a bottle of Elvish Port, 10937." Go to Mystonia and find Fangur: You make your way to a beautiful port town, much larger than other port towns seen in the past, with exception of Argonia, witness tall and towering blue buildings with banners flowing in the wind. The background contains a tall single spire of stone, grey and piercing into the air, appearing to be quite the distance away past the walls of Mystonia itself. Surrounding even past the spire, exists a long chain of mountains that extend out into the horizon. You find that the buildings are made of stone, painted and kept in good condition, even the shrubbery well kept. People are coming and going around you. Welcome to Mystonia. You head up a tall and winding hill that appears almost cliff like with houses and store peppered around this side passage of the city. Banners that have a large insignia and beautiful blue ribbons flowing surrounding the path lead you to a grandiose castle of great blue and yellow tapestry and foreign plants around you that you have yet to recognize before. There exists two stone spires that seem to somewhat resemble the spire beyond the walls but before the mountains. You go into a large chamber surrounded in grey stone pillars with blue tapestry where in the center, the king sits on a tall stone throne. He appears much cheerier than other human kings you have witnessed. "Greetings adventurers! Here on quest, or on pilgrimage, or maybe even, pardon? I am Fangur, king of Mystonia." don't know where the tribe is. have to locate this tribe. must find a tribe of blood which is known who will help for a task.

There they will tell you where they are, and you can find them directly west of the Elf Totema temple along the line of the jungle. There they should be worshipping, and should not attack you on sight, lest you disrespect them. Do not do so, for they are some of the only types who would know the location of the Dragon tribe.

Most of the people surrounding the building happen to be elves as well as traders here and there offering goods and services. Node: [find the tribe of blood] Find the tribe of blood west of the Elf Totema temple along the line of the jungle. You head west through the grassy gnolls, leaving the path and temple behind you, having been already in the afternoon, moving more toward the evening as you kept on the cart dragged along by two birdard. You see a series of large red ribbons that are strung together through tall rocks. You are still a good distance away, so you cannot see much yet. "Teer-ah-eeehmmmm. Ura-deno~ Vemii tenedaaar~" You see a group of people in a circle, praying, many of which with barely any clothing at all, some with caked on blood that has long since coagulated, as well as bodies freely on the ground of human and elve alike disembowled in the grass. The grass itself, though green, is caked in blood and carcasses. THere lies a figure in the middle who is stabbing at one of the disembowled corpses. The one with the blade walks towards you: "You aren't supposed to be here adventurer, we've had enough of your kind! Leave us!" He is walking toward you with the blade gripped in hand. "You are on Jetin Ataar's lands. He will judge you and deem you worthy or swallow you hole."

"The death, the separation, the life, the binding, which ultimately leads to the blood. It all encircles around the blood, your life essense. We believe in giving, but for every action must require sacrifice, and for us to help you, you must help us in turn." "The one thing we need is blood, and lots of it, for our gods drink it by the waterfall. I see you have a cart, capable of storing great beasts. We can think of one type of beast which would be suitable for much blood which we, and our gods favor." Men of the tribe wish to travel with to collect the ice giant.

The air mage engineer -- name of Pratibha You walk up the path and witness a person that appears to be next to a contraption working on it. You don't know what the contraption is. It appears to be a Birdkhan who is tinkering with some sort of a magical machine. "I am an air wizard, ever heard of one?" He is wielding a set of large glasses with multiple lenses hanging off of the side that can be turned to cover his eyes. He wields a small wand in his right hand and has sets of baubles and reaths indicating some sort of powerful education at some unnamed college. "Check it out!" he holds his wand out as it suddenly extended about 25 feet from where he held it, now a giant pole with a sharp metal tip at the end. "You know, it is funny. How do you kill what you cannot reach? Did you know with enough special air you can float with no mana?" He pulls out what appears to be some sort of animal skin, pursing his lips around it and suddenly blowing a huge amount of air, so much so that it appeared magical, a balloon expanding to a giant size, roughly 10 feet in diameter, placing it inside the contraption. There appears to be something that holds the baloon in place as he hops into the contraption, to where he begins to float in front of you. He floats up a bit as he seems to add a little weight, now floating 20 feet above you stationary. "No hard feelings adventurers but I need you for further reagents!

Why else is there a chest there in the middle of the road? No doubt a courageous mimic, or perhaps a mage, or a trap that would guarantee death!

Anyway, I have something interesting for you. Lets see how you handle this!" The birdkhan air wizard holds out the bag and then opens it up, it has a pungent odor about it as you try to open it. "This is my waste! You know how they say that another man's waste is another's boon, or something you laymen say!" He blows into the bag as it suddenly expands into a giant shape to reveal a giant golem made out of the waste of fruit, vegetables, and metal shards. It stands there for a moment only to move and writhe, coughing outward expelling a gem of onyx, to where the golem picks it up and throws it to the north.

You return as a single human in red looks over, then turns to head toward the larger hut. Shortly after, you hear a low and humming horn with the animal sapien shaman stepping out. You then see several people exiting their huts and steps out in bare feet looking out toward the giant you managed to bring back. There are several surrounding you including a curious animal sapien child who has dried blood over his face with a toothy grin. "You come back? You come with blood then? It's been a long time." He walks over and inspects it for a moment, and as an animal sapien, he smells closely, leaning nearby expecting a rotting smell. He looks up and around and smiles. "it appears to have plenty blood, though coagulated, Jetin Ataar will be pleased." The people cheer knowing they would have blood for many multa. The ritual: You find there are groups of people, birdkhan, magi, human, elve, warrior, unpossessed demon alike, all grouping together wielding large copper bowls, others wielding large knives, slicing the huge corpse in. You smell a pungent decay in the air as they begin working and bloodletting from the giant. They are quick in providing bowls and pouring it into large clay urns. The giant red ribbons strewn throughout the tall stones around the ritual site flow in the wind as you can hear the rejoicing of the group, clearly in glee speaking and laughing. They spend the time with one naked human bathing in blood with the clay pots being tilted and poured over them ontop of a plinth. Blood priest smiles upon them and gives the information as to the whereabouts of the tribe of the ice dragon. The blood priest, while the celebration continued behind him, with men and child alike covering themselves in blood and rejoicing in the plentiful blood that has been brought; the priest approaches the group. "Now, I am amazed you have done what you have been requested, and brought me what my tribe wanted. So, what was it that you needed from me, something of the ice dragon tribe, information, yes?" "you will find them along the outskirts of Airim in Tacta. You must head to the peninsula in Tacta to find them. Yet beware, there are far too many for you to fight. I would approach with great caution as they would most likely kill you if they found out what you were up to." inside the hut to go to sleep, the priest approaches holding blood sausages as well as beer. You are not sure how they got a hold of beer out this far. "Do you plan to fight them? You aren't strong enough." "On the delta able to fight? at least 50, minimum in terms of adventurers, and that isn't even all of them, certainly a much larger force in different parts of the land scattered."

Potential related noun: judge, look Party awareness: Party has advantage, knows what is going on but did not kill anyone. The totema is walking along with desciples carrying a gorgeous looking throne-like cart that is filled with flowers, embroidery, red tapestry with golden steps that are lifted above the ground. Roughly 10 or so disciples are carrying the large object. It appears to be a glorified coffin, where it is moving past you. If adventurer's ask: "This is Leyaski, great merchant of Mystonia and owner of many homes in the districts, has created great wealth and glory bestowed to the royalty. We are transporting his body to Necroton, where it can be remembered, as his 100 cert has completed as of 10904C, 52nd of [day]" ============================ Need to go to Mystonia as there are too many to fight. Mystonia has a troupe of Forest Imps who can accompany the party and help stop the worshippers. They must see someone in command, if need be, the king of Mystonia by creating an appointment. You head up a tall and winding hill that appears almost cliff like with houses and store peppered around this side passage of the city. Banners that have a large insignia and beautiful blue ribbons flowing surrounding the path lead you to a grandiose castle of great blue and yellow tapestry and foreign plants around you that you have yet to recognize before. There exists two stone spires that seem to somewhat resemble the spire beyond the walls but before the mountains. You go into a large chamber surrounded in grey stone pillars with blue tapestry where in the center, the king sits on a tall stone throne. He appears much cheerier than other human kings you have witnessed. "Greetings adventurers! Here on quest, or on pilgrimage, or maybe even, pardon? I am Fangur, king of Mystonia." the king grants 20 forest imp to the party and a ship ride to Airim. "You will find your ship docked in the northern most port. A beautiful bright blue ship, and of course, 20 forest imp, ready at your command as you find necessary, but do not betray them, for they will kill you at nearest sight lest you betray them." ============================== Find out that the worshippers are to the east of Mystonia Peak along the ocean. They begin worshipping at the base and have been doing so for several cert to bring back Glaciesa: An elderly forest imp accompanying the party since Mystonia approaches the group: "If I may speak. I am Joklemier. Beastmaster, at your service. I think I may have some information for you." The forest imp reaches down and pets his beast, an owl wolf who looked gnarled, but fiercely loyal to the elderly forest imp, the hair on his legs more matted and more grey than the others, limp skin. "Glaciesa. I have not heard that name in a very long time. Glaciesa has long since been dead, naught hundreds of cert ago, if the oral song of olde among forest imp speak truth. It came to the world in a torrent, from underworlds we yet not know, it blew its breath of biting death and settled in Misty falls for a few cert, turning it into a foggy landscape, drawing power from the ground itself. Afterwords she flew west and eventually to what is now known as the Icy Plains. It drew power from the infamous ice core and no creature could get as close as Glaciesa did. It reveled in it like Feerei bathing in the sunlight. It blew its ice and expounded the strength of the icy plains leaving it in desolation extending from lake and destroying more of Gensho, similar to Armagheddon itself. Then it settled in the peak of Mystonia, driving it into a deathly chill capable of dousing even brightest flame. Brave adventurers, names of Hotalth, great warrior and grand longbow ranger; Urien, animal sapien and great assassin; and unlikely, and often forgotten Forest Imp, Vaho, grand longbow ranger all worked together to destroy Glaciesa. With great knowledge lifted in tomes of olde, now in mere pages scattered across the kingdoms, they had the knowledge to defeat Glaciesa, now of which I'm certain we will not have. If Glaciesa were to rise again, certainly the death would be incalculable. All of Mystonian civilizations would be subject to the bite. We must stop them at all costs adventurers. They must be attempting some sort of resurrection as we speak, and we are days from Mystonia Peak!"

It has a robust port, though much smaller and more sparse than the avidly populous Mystonia. The homes appear to be made of a white stone, dotted with shells along the moldings, tropical plants and beautiful blue roofs half-circle in shape. You can see up above where the end of the city walls were, and many shops, some of which 2 stories or higher. You walk into town with the hoard of forest imp, many take notice of you. Welcome to Airim. Blood worshippers are there, wielding great blood to gift to the worshippers. Must interrogate them or kill them, can avoid a fight if needed.

Must travel to Mystonia Peak and stop Glaciesa from being animated. =========================== If players lose the fight they will spawn in Mystonia and then meet up with the forest imp Dulu. "They fight like demons, what have we learned?" "They're summoning the ice dragon. That I am sure. Glaciesa, I know." =========================== If players win the fight: You come across a barely alive leader mage who is on the floor blooded. You have a chance to interrogate him and he will give the answers necessary. "You are bastards. But. You are too late though, even if you destroy the urns of blood, there are others, and you will still be dead." Dulu: "My troupe is no doubt in Mystonia now licking their wounds. We must head back and stop the ice tribe. I have a feeling we have a problem. How did you know it was Glaciesa?" =========================== Node encounters: ========================= Back in Mystonia you meet with the dead forest imp adventurers, the adventurers desire rest, but know that they cannot at command of the king. Should you adhere to their desire of rest, then it will be too late to save Mystonia and Mystonia and the area around Mystonia Peak will become an endless desolation. Mystonia village and Tacta will be an uninhabitable hellscape. "Well you see, me and my men have been travelling for a good long while, and many of them have expressed concern in having to travel much further to Mystonia Peak. We figure we take just a day to rest, and perhaps you could do the same. Wouldn't that be worth while? You know, like a beer, a cot, a full meal, and then we can all go." You headed into the inn and find that there is a beautiful wooden embroidery surrounding. The imps picked a human's inn, one of great festivities and laughter. There the imps look over and all yell out holding drinks: "eeeeyyyy!" they all exclaim as you three walked in, you find that there is a tender who is a human female. (Bowila) "Ah, so this is your army. Must have cost you a pretty penny." If adventurers defeated puu'sar in previous badger god quest, Joklemier should approach: Name: Joklemier. Beastmaster Race: Forest Imp female (elderly who tells the story of Glaciesa) Level/Class: 2 TTB Beastmaster "You have no idea what you walk into, do you, saviors of Parsan? That is right, I know of your tale, ye who have defeated Puu'sar the demon, or known back then as the Badger God. I heard it from the king of Mystonia. This is no demon worshipped by unworldly folk who claims to keep human land safe while eating away at it. Oh no, not even close. You peer upon the power of gods beyond comprehension. The ice dragon tribe worship real gods. Glaciesa is death, no other way to speak of it. Should we fail, the ground you stand on and nought for hundreds of miles will become a desolation where nothing will grow, not a single leaf will fall upon the icy death. Not for 1000 cert will it be reversed, should we fail, that much I can assure you." ========================= Blood tribe people You see a cart in front travelling slower than you going the direction you are going. You can see that there is a mage that appears dressed in blue sitting in the back, as well as several large urns inside the cart being dragged along by two birdard. Can potentially get by without a fight. Blood tribe might assist players as they are in the midst of shipping blood.

Name: Riil-que Race: Male Forest Imp Citizen Level: 1 Wealth: Wealthy You witness in the distance a long red flag with two red Vs on it that have in common RQ over the two red V shapes behind a white banner. Forest imps seem to be in a bit of excitement behind you. Dulu approaches. "That is the banner of Riil-que, a very wealthy merchant, and famous one at that. It seems that he has heard of us and wants to wish us well. He is a great and powerful merchant, I would give him respect, as he is seen as quite the supplier between Empaiga, Elven Village, Gatin, and even the lesser known but great city known as Icanig. He would likely sell you supplies." As you approach, you find about 4 different bards who are using an instrument playing a song representing the honorance of Riil-que. Riil-que: "Greetings, slayers of Glaciesa! Or at least, hopefully! I wish you all luck, and wish to bring you as much luck as I possibly can give you. I have many supplies that may be of use when fighting Glaciesa. Should you need anything, I recommend getting it now; I will even sell to you at a steep discount too! We fight for the lands together adventurers, and I wish to do my part!" He opens up his caravan that unfolds and expounds on many different products, from supplies, reagents, magical artifacts, armor, weapons, clothing, leather. He is almost his own general store in the middle of nowhere. ========================= You cross a grassy area as you get closer and closer to Mystonia Peak. Dulu approaches. "We eat quick. We speak, and anything we need, we can try to help. This is going to be an issue adventurers. I will prompt that you may speak to my troupe of forest imp, since we have travelled quite some time now, they should not be so unfriendly." ========================= Calm node. You are walking through the path and find it is quiet, the grass is rustling and the birds chirping, rivers bubbling beside you and the soft pitter patter of birdard moving their feet are a soft comfort to you, for this noise meant that you weren't fighting. You peer toward the ominous mountain you travel toward and understand it is a calm before a storm. ========================= Name: Siul Race: Warrior female Level/Class: 1 TTB Great Knight of Shield You are heading up the path heading upward across stone. You find that there is an ice dragon tribesman that immediately turns around and runs. ========================= All forest imps fight the worshippers of Glaciesa and the blood tribe. Adventurers must stop the animation of Glaciesa You go up the mountain of ice, it appearing much colder, yet at the very same time, you are all ready for combat, ready to see what is to be, you go up an icy path where you hear the commotion of battle. You see forest imp and hired adventurers fighting groups of unknown individuals with light blue painted on face and armor. You peer upon a huge corpse of a dragon exhumed from ice. It has a skin like opal and a silver frilled sail on its back with ragged hair that has a silver-like sheen. You can see an unmoving ice gargoyle in front of you. "Adventurers. I am afraid you are too late, even with all of your troops, it is all for naught, and the ice dragon tribe will resurrect our God, Glaciesa." =================================================== Mechanics of Glaciesa Fight. Fight only lasts for 20 rotations. place a counter at end of full rotation of everyone's turns + hastes. Should they not defeat the ice gargoyle in time to stop the ritual, glaciesa is born and kills everyone on the top of the mountain and it is observed that the mountain turns to ice. (on fail: You wake up in [village insert] having felt a quick and intense cold. You stand there with your party and the forest imps who are suddenly next to you back in the village. You visually can see the mystonian peak turn a powerful white. The ice has poured out from the edge and you can witness a sudden chill in the air. You realize that you have failed. Glaciesa has been born, and no amount of power will allow you to defeat her, lest you become gods yourselves.) Ice Shard (blizzard/fire/water/thunder/physical/poison) Ice shards have half the full health of a regular monster to variants. Must destroy the ice shard of corresponding damage to remove the barrier around ice gargoyle. Ice Gargoyle is invulnerable to all of these effects unless you kill an ice shard.

They look over, now only 6 in number where there were 20, and begin resurrecting their bretherin and tending to wound. "Truly, it were fate that we save the world," cried Dulu. "May-she-i would not allow for it." You can see the forest imps gathering and beginning to prepare to leave. "Our task is done here, adventurers. We leave for other lands, and you have a meeting with the king of Mystonia; that is all certain."
