Randy P: The black altar almost blinds you with the Necromantic energy it’s giving off.
Amber Lee: ys i do have it
Treassa: KOby will step back with distaste
Randy P: But the tuning fork that Koby found on Nurklenak also glows…
temporalvengeance: [Whack that fork on it!!]
Treassa: KOby will whack that fork if he is smart enough
temporalvengeance: [this is coming from the guy who played a giant drum cause it was there and awoke a bunch of slave zombies]
Amber Lee: did not
Amber Lee: of wait
Randy P: The tuning fork rings clearly…
Randy P: And the compartment slides open
Randy P: [it’s a chime of opening]
temporalvengeance: [neet]
Amber Lee: sweet
Randy P: Inside the compartment is a very thick and very old tome.
Treassa: KOby will ask Corbus to check for traps

Richard Folk: Corbus says,“Here it is Koby, Are you sure you want this?”
Zethallon: [“It’s mine! My… prescious…”]

Randy P: Koby thinks that the cover has a Sepia Snake Sigil crafted into the leather.
haweemoo has joined the conference.

Randy P: Koby, roll Reflex to avert your eyes
Zethallon: [Welcome Joe]
haweemoo: hi ))
Treassa: 3+9 + 12
Randy P: An amber-colored cobra rears from the cover of the tome and strikes Koby!
temporalvengeance: Obsidian portal is a campaign management tool
temporalvengeance: allows organisation of characters, maps, adventure logs, wikis of info, etc..
Randy P: Koby is immediately surrounded by a shimmering amber force field. He topples over, still clasping the book. He appears to be completely paralyzed.
temporalvengeance: [OH SNAP!!]
temporalvengeance: [quick……umm… someone else suck out the venom!]
Amber Lee: but hes a dude
Randy P: [anyone with Dispel Magic can try to counter the spell]
Amber Lee: ok
Zethallon: [Sadly, I already admitted that I did not have the spell memorized]
Amber Lee: 19 nat
Randy P: [I think that Tobbeee has it]
Richard Folk: Corbus shouts,“Quick, help Koby with this magical trap effect!”
Randy P: Tobbeee successfully dispels the Sepia spell and any other magic trap that may be enchanting the spellbook
Randy P: The tome, when examined, appears to be Nurklenak’s spellbook.
Richard Folk: Corbus cheers,“Good job Tobbeee! I knew you could do it!”
Zethallon: [Jackpot!]
temporalvengeance: [booyah]
Treassa: So all Koby got out of it was a headache and a book of necromatic spells
Zethallon: Hemon nods to Tobbeee and examines Koby for further damage.
haweemoo: [slade mumbles i was right books are bad for you]
Randy P: Actually, Nurklenak was a Controller
Randy P: His spellbook contains every Enchantment spell (in the core book) through Level 5.
Treassa: Koby, not being the smartest in the bunch, will look through the spells.
Randy P: {plus a bunch of others, but will list those later}
Zethallon: [Sure thing Randy]
Randy P: Also in the compartment is a scrollcase that bears the Red Hand’s wax sigil. The parchment inside reads….
Zethallon: [WB Dick]
Randy P: "Nurklenak,

The dwarf’s information interests me greatly. The servant of the platinum dragon and his companions must be destroyed before they cause any more mischief. It was undoubtedly they who attacked Vraath Keep and slew Koth. The bloodghosts were unable to locate his dagger. Opening the portals is essential to our victory at Channathgate. I have scried its location to be at the southwest base of Skullgorge Pass. Dispatch a group of scouts to acquire it for us. Make sure they do not handle it directly. The soul bound to it is more powerful than their tiny minds can withstand.

Being “heroes,” the dwarf’s friends will probably try to rescue him. Have your men kill them and bring me the dragonborn’s weapon—the Dragon Queen requires it….
Randy P: …Blix and I have business in Unther over the next tenday but will return for the siege of Rethmar. In the meantime, Rhest is under your supervision. Do not make me regret your appointment. Failure to acquire the dragonborn’s weapon would be… unfortunate.

Richard Folk: [Mom had a phone call, had to notify her]
Zethallon: [Ssaarvithria isn’t going to be a happy camper then.]
Richard Folk: [Wow…what a note]
Randy P: [Ready for combat?]
temporalvengeance: [bring it?]
Treassa: [yep]
haweemoo: [ with a name like ssaa…. how can you tell if someone stutters it??]
Randy P: [ ]
