Series 10 Shadrach’s armour

The words that Shadrach had spoken to Jirah the prophet caused a rage in him. Jirah was proud of who he was, a desert prince, a seer, an ambasador amongst the desert tribes a nobleman! But to be told that he was none of that, just a worshipper of demons and misguided solar had pushed Jirah to the edge of his temperment. The words of a fool should not affect a man such as hebut they had. Jirah would no longer talk to the fool Shadrach, but as he had promised to him that he would make him a suit of armour , and on his word to do all that he could to protect creation and the other solars he would make only the finest armour for him.

Two whole days of labour he spent in the smithy of Braxus’s manse, the rage in him fuelling the flames of the forge that no mortal could step inside the forge itself. Then came the visions, the calm and beatiful nature of Harnust destroyed, a healer and priest nailed to a cross as his body burnt by dragon blooded elemental fires. Meyimar a woman of great beauty but a wily warrior of the dawn, risking all to save her family from the fury of the wyld hunt as they sought her in her village home to the north. Only to be struck down by an inablitly to fight, the laughter as the hunt took her head as a trophy and killed all in the village as conspirators. And Tsunachen a simple man of the land newly exalted taken from his family screaming in grief and rage, then silenced by a simple thrust of a blade to his heart.

Jirahs heart broke, three tears for each fell on the breastplate of the armour the pain of their passing like the loss of his own family. He had watched these three through their dreams, and there greatness would be missed. Jirah is called to meet with the fool Shadrach, but his grief had exhausted him. Shadrach presented himself onhis knees before the prophet and begged his forgiveness.

Jirahs only answer, “It is not mine to give.” Nine tear shaped sapphires mark the golden plate over the left breast of the armour. Though they stand out from the plain and unadorned armour they seem to complete the perfect golden suit of Oriachalcum. The gems seem when looked upon, to be in three distinct sets, like wet tears fallen onto the armour itself. They sit perfectly within the breast plate of the armour, even the hands of a blind silk weaver would not feel a blemish! Strangely the gems themselves look moist, like tears upon the heart of the wearer.

The armour itself is perfect! No blemish marks it’s surface, it’s lustre deep and rich. Although it is plain and unadorned, it marks it’s wearer as one of the unconquered suns chosen.

As the sunlight glints from the armour three names can be seen faintly alongside the gems.

Harnust

Meyimar

Tsunachen

The armour of the righteous man, quenched in the tears of a prophet.

Series 11 The prophet’s dream of doom

The prophet lies in his prophecy laden nightmare. The prophetic visions of the south laid barren and black filling him with horror and dread. But his heart would break as he sees the desert sands red with blood and the coprses of his own people spread across the sands. But his pain at his loss was not to lessen, as they rise from the ground, a mindless shambling number of corpses rise from where they fell. Tears fall from his eyes onto his pillow. A vision of LArgen fills his mind, a brief light of hope. If his people lived he would send them to Largen.

As Jirah awakens from his slumber he looks to theh rising sun.

“Help me great lord to save my people, they are my heart and my soul. Without them I would be lost.”

Star Wars – Shattered Galaxy

Proposal for the August/September games block – to be put up 31st July – votes 7th August

The time – approximately 60 years after the Battle of Endor

The galaxy – torn by a century of strife and warfare.  Technology is mainly stagnant or in decay, though every faction seeks for the ultimate weapon(s) which will enable it to prevail over its enemies.

The factions – the New Republic struggles to re-establish peace and order throughout the galaxy.  Other factions such as the remnants of the Empire – now known as The Reformation – oppose them, as do various crime syndicates and local warlords.  The Jedi Order has been reborn through the guidance of Grand Master Skywalker, but is not fully trusted or accepted.  Palpatine’s propaganda of the Jedi as traitors and sorcerers still lingers

The heroes – representatives of the New Republic or the New Jedi Order.

The system – D20 Saga Edition (the 3rd edition of the D20 licence).  Will switch to D6 if this doesn’t work out!

The setting – most of the old heroes of the Rebellion era are dead or old aged.  The majority of the EU developments didn’t happen – especially the Yuuzhon Vong!  However, the Solos and Skywalkers did have children, of which only Jaina Solo and Ben Skywalker now survive.

The mission – currently to track down the person(s) intent on selling details of the location of the last undiscovered repository of Emperor Palpatine’s secrets to the Imperial Reformation or crime lord factions.

Ordering the Exalted campaign

I’ve given the main stories series numbers (like on TV), and started at a highish number. When adding previous stuff guess where it fits in. We can easily renumber everything.

I wasn’t in the previous Exalted block so don’t know what happened in series ten.

I’m guessing Largin is series 8?

Hunted

The day had not gone well, the Bostrop had us escorted from their

tula. All we had done was come to their land for the healers to help

them. But their suspicious nature and recent raids by the Poss must

have made them less than reasonable. So we spent the night under the

clouds, but we could not pass through their tula which would add 2

days to our journey time. So at daybreak we had to head back the way

we came, as it would not be right for us to put the healers through

the trouble of crossing the forested hills. It would be hard travel

and would not be good for them, though I miss the closeness of the

woods. But our concerns over the lunars chasing us were not to go

away. As we neared the ford we could see that it was guarded,6

flaming spear outlanders, and all i wanted to do was kill them. Vara,

Onsara, Alaric and even Serenalda wanted it to be so. Myself and the

vingans would move round to the forest and ambush them,I had

waited for this moment since my birth but Alaric in a moment of

clarity recommended that we scout the forest first.

This was my work and i moved swiftly and silently. I entered the

woods moved in deeper to where we would attack from, and our plan was

undone.

The hunters who were after us before, were there! Watching, waiting I

was sure for us. Then he spotted me, I had been as silent as I could

even the twigs beneath my feet had bent instead of snapping for me. I

am a hunter and know the way of the woods.But he knew I was there, so

I had become the hunted. But I made him work for his quarry, I would

not be easy. But it took all of my skill and more to try to loose him

but to little avail. But I am no normal quarry and when he thought he

had me, my spear I turned against him.He is strong and fast and I

knew I could not outmatch him. But I had caught him off gaurd and he

did not know what to do. So I had him, “What are you doing in my

hunting land? You have scared my quarry to deeper in the woods. What

are you doing here?”

That was when I discovered the trouble we are in, we are his quarry.

I had to get back to warn the group, but first i had to get rid of

him!! I persuaded him I hoped that I was here hunting and had nothing

to do with the healers they were after. Deeper into the woods i went

to continue with my ploy.Time passed and I came to the edge of the

woods to see Alaric and the healers riding into the woods in a

hurry!! Stunned I was, what had happened? I had the patience of a

hunter, and knew the dividends it paid. But what had happened?

Everything was on the brink and enough trouble had we brothers caused

without failing at this as well.

Jirah Ashad of the desert tribes

I am Jirah Ashad, 10th son of Sheihk Salim of the Asheel tribe. I am the first birthson of Hamira daughter of Ashmel of the Jashir. May the desert winds be cool and refresh them in their journey. Although a son of lower order I am special among the desert tribes as I am a dreamer. Sincce my birth I have travelled to the great walled city of Jearon, with it s mighty obsidian gates that rise to clouds and above where the lords of the city reside and carry out the decrees of their emperor. But I cannot even write his name as I cannot write in their language and in this world I do not have a cleft tongue. I have seen the flying city of the Vanir and spent many months among them, listening to their stories and spending time amongst their entertainers, concubines and wizards. Learning some of their ways, tales and even gained some knowledge of how to focus my own inner powers and knowledge of gods, daemons, objects of power, and of other dreamers. I seen wonders that I cannot describe, and told tales to my peoples of such wonder that tears came to the eyes of even the hardiest of our tribes.

I have stood before the dream dragon and listened to his singing in my mind. There I was nearly lost, I did not want to leave. But the ghoul who was once dreamer such as I Gilber’t, led me away and back to my dream gate. I had lain for a week in my tent  and my body was wasting away, I was ten years of age; but in the dream world I had listened to him for twelve years the music above any I had heard before and not heard its equal since. Gilber’t and I became close friends and I journeyed much and learned a lifetimes experience before I was even a true man of the tribe. He showed me terrors beyond the imagination, wonders and pleasures that would destroy a mortals mind and body. I had been to dream worlds and seen in the flesh the dreamer herself, her world a true wonder to behold a sea of turquoise and gold the sky white with clouds of blazing saffron with the sea itself singing as the waves crashed against the golden sands.

But she a blind cripple, who could not have seen such things but as a dreamer created a world where no cruelty could befall her. It took me many months to find her but find her I did. I am glad as she was left to beg in the streets and had been poorly treated and things done to her body that even the lowest slave should never endure.

That was when he came to me the mighty sun came to me and they followed. But I had learnt well from the Vanir, Gilber’t and the lords of the dead city of Chimar. I had power. I let them feel it and they were crushed. But they did not know me or my people, so I took Esther and fled the city. I heard that the Dragon blooded were coming for me. I summoned around me the desert winds and left behind that cruel city.

Esther was greeted warmly by my people because even among dreamers she was a wonder, able to create and keep her own world and allow others to see her world and spend time there. My mother tended as well as any could to her physical and mental scars that she bore in silence. But I had to leave, I had lost my dream key and could no longer travel to those places and I missed it so. But I knew out there my key lay waiting for me to find it again. I know some of those places I have seen exist and I will find them. So I have left my people for a time and will return soon I hope.
