Other Session 1 Observations

  • There were a number of odd people at the Lion’s Mane. Most of them looked old. There was a sense of anticipation/tension from them.
  • The odd patrons asked for the lights to be dimmed.
  • One of the patrons had an unnatural goat. He is a powerful mage who has attempted the Test of the Starstone in the past and failed.
  • One told Dean’s fortune, predicting a great crime to happen and also probably placing some kind of hex on Dean. We don’t know what the symbols on her cards mean. (Knowledge Arcana on the last: “dates back to the start of language. Not sure the meaning. Probably strength?”) Sulrayu recognized the fortune telling woman as someone he had seen in Absalom 5000 years ago.
  • One patron was a guy in robes in the dark corner. He didn’t speak and no one made a point to talk to him.
  • The three elves were named Ditarahr Leaffletcher, Ettesr Highmaster, and Uldiob Heartpanther. They were elderly and statesmanlike. They had light armor and some weapons, and their equipment was exquisite.
  • We all experienced an event in which the world seemed to slow to a stop except for all the odd people chanting; then an angel arrived, then a demon which attacked it cleaving the Inn. * Other people were knocked out and some animals died. The odd people left via magical means, most activating devices.
  • Because we know multiple people present have an interest in taking the Test of the Starstone, it stands to reason that the event at the inn is involved or helpful to would be testers in some way.
  • Elves feel uncomfortable in Rosedale and none other than the half-elves in our party are present in town.
  • Some high paying customer wanted ground up bones from the graveyard from Moopsie Pookiesmootch. Originally we assumed this was Xandrof but in retrospect that seems unlikely since he visited the graveyard himself not long before us.
  • The graveyard is overcast and dark regardless of time of day. Sul’rayu claims laying his bones to rest 100 miles away will fix this, I think, but didn’t say what the original cause was?
  • Seth didn’t stay dead for some reason after suffering a most gruesome fast zombie violation. Maybe it was an illusion or something? Seth later tried killing a chicken in the graveyard. It stayed dead.
  • We have a bone arrow, a rod, and a scroll that we cannot identify.
  • Old book on planar travel: Powerful dimensional folding can cause potent primordial power fluxes.
  • Historical document from town news: Small village of Rosedale buried under earth during a massive arch-mage battle. New city to be built on hill. No excavation planned.
  • Book on magic and the multiverse: Dimensional folding: The act of of multiple planes, times, ley lines, and multiverses intersecting at a single point, plane, and time.
  • We know that dimensional folding is a natural occurance, and speculate that it’s what happened at the Inn and that the people there had foreknowledge of it happening somehow and benefited from being present at it in some way.
  • We have an ancient book entitled ‘Mundane Arcana: The guide for the unenlightened’. It’s a guide for wizard guildmasters. It contains information about how to set up a wizard’s guild in great detail, including lessons, class sizes, and financials. It turns out not much has changed about running a wizard’s guild in 10,000 years. The book also contains spells and is written in Azlanti. We can now read Azlanti.
  • Azlant is an ancient empire of humans, destroyed by their aboleth masters by Earthfall, in which the aboleth called the Starstone, presumably from space, to fall and smash Azlant.
