The Year That Was
« on: July 14, 2016, 10:33:43 AM »
This thread will be to discuss what has happened in the in game year between the end of the last session (which can be read in the previous thread and involved the revelation of Foost) and a year later when we will pick up the story.

First off, every gnoll gets 120 times their current level xp.

Other than the eight gnolls, the list of characters that are involved already are:

Vor'Ruk, Haas, Ash, Valizar, and Grant

Did the gnolls ever divide the loot from the last session?

A listing of the items so that you can divvy them out:

- gloves of missile snaring (fey only)
- Spear +2
- Cloak of Protection +4
- Halberd +3
- Ring of Fire Extinguishing
- potion of neutralize poison
- Ring of Protection +2
- 2 magic swords +2

I believe there may have been something else as well

That was not completed.  If you want to go back to the last thread of the last campaign and complete it there, now would be a good time.

To pick up the story where we had left off, the gnolls and Foost continue to head south to find the pack.  Your travels now are unimpeded. You reach the pack and tell of what you discovered.

There is a lot of questioning and Foost is put under scrutiny.  The gnome is sweating and nervous, but he handles the pressure.  The pack is going to head south and wait for more orders from Warlork Akrak.

After a few days, of much slower going now that you are traveling in a horde, Vatpik calls to all of you and orders you to make your way to Balinhost.  "Prepare them for us."  Foost goes with you.

When you reach Balinhost, you find that the remnants of the army from the Fellos Estate are here.  They arrived not long before you, as they moved much slower.  You carefully make them aware of what else is going to arrive and then camp outside the realm.

Can someone refresh my memory on Foost's involvement in this thing? I recall him asking us to recover his stolen spell book, but can't remember why we would do that with all the other stuff going on.

Also, there was not a decision made on whether you would help him, that was just asked at the end of the season.  Foost asked, but he is not demanding about it as you travel.

Not a lot of details there on Foost's involvement.

Funny reading back through that season to see how many unconscious gnolls there were. We should keep a tally next time.

He only appeared in the last session, helping you at the end as described on the site.

So still not clear on Foost's involvement...he asked us to retrieve his stolen spellbook in return for his aid vs. the fey?

After arriving and helping you, he suggested that he could help further in exchange for your aid finding his book.

Your days camped outside of Balinhost are easy.  Occasionally, guards come out and ask questions about the approaching horde of gnolls.  You give quick and correct answers and they thank you and head back.  Preperations are reasonably made to prepare a place for the gnolls to camp.
