Curse of Coeurasa 2023

Ep 23: Welcome to the Family

Published: Sep 30th, 2023

In pushing against Mr. Moonsea Ardena, Zaus, and Sam discover a method of saving the rat and puppo recently iced over a chamber before. In much need of rest, a couple reunions, and the shock of witnessing a spire reawaken the group sits breathing before tackling what they will do now that the Tear has been returned.

Bata, raging like they had never before sending cracks through the constructs between them and the dragon while Arden battles with Mr. Moonsea trading barbs as they grasp for control over the spire spawn. "I can still piss off the boss and save my child too", Arden. Sam and Therrin survey the battlefield looking for key enemies and objects throughout asking Olain what they should do next before running forward and breaking into song to invigorate their bruised fellows. Moonsea sets to biting at Arden and Zaus's spirits draining away their force of personality, all that makes they two them. Roaring out into the chamber the primal dragon instills fear in Therrin and Bata moves in closer taking a hefty blow to the draconic mass. "I will attempt to ride the zipline to danger town", Arden. Manipulating their spectral body Moonsea fires their tongue like a tree frog onto Arden's leg pulling the adventurer in despite their efforts to escape. Olain exits the chamber as Therrin does joining in their expletives having also fallen to the aura of fear the primal dragon gives off. Sam hears a familiar song, they recall back from the riverboat so long ago, and they ponder on it. Therin attempts to re-enter the dragon's chamber finding themselves to shaken to breach the threshold and in turning away see their moth's body had disintegrated away while the party had been focused elsewhere. Sam counters Mr. Moonsea's song of the spire with their own taking control of the inky mass and what it could become with some guidance. Dragging themselves grabbing onto open air as if it possessed mass Mr. Moonsea bites at Arden tearing more of the Puppo's sense of self. Bata throws their might against the dragon unexpectedly sending the same vibrations through Sam's vocal cords surprising the courier though he manages to just hold onto his place in the song despite stumbling. "Enjoy the music", Arden shouts down to Moonsea as Arden and Zaus successfully escape into the forming primal dragon also sounding out what they told Moonsea. Bata looking up to hear the dragon's first words, angry and confused Bata sees Arden's face pop out of the dragon's head. Therrin jets back into the chamber as soon as she pushes the fear off also realizing they might drop as soon as their body exerts itself a hair further driving their blade into dragon Arden collapsing with a tinge of regret as Arden speaks back critiquing her actions. Sam leans into the sense that they are the composer facilitating the transfer of control over the inky mass to Arden and Zaus while Moonsea claws their way into the dragon attempting to reassert control. Musical notes and banners of streaming code glitch and warp in open space as control over the primal dragon is contested. Bata rushes to the nearest crystal pillar wrought with angy emotions but unable to bring themselves to hurt something that looks like Arden. Zaus attempts to be a hero with a drop kick to Mr. Moonsea driving the umbra to the edge of the ethereal space encouraged by Sam's tune. Olain rushes in and using their body to sow Therrin together keeps her from bleeding out onto the spire stone floor. Bata continues to desire to pound their hammer into the ground feeling their energy failing them they instead bottle their rage and drink their final potion of restorative juices. With Mr. Moonsea distracted by Zaus taking to whipping the elder umbra's final lifeline to the dragon like they were a bug on a carpet and in that moment, Arden uses what remains of their will to send Moonsea careening into the great beyond. Elated that Moonsea was dealt with for the moment Sam stabilizes the inky black body guiding the spire to shape the body and Olain notes that the mass is what they are made of. Placing the Dragon's Tear back into its receptacle and Bata comes out of their layers of rage now needing to come to grips with the Cronenberg dragon possessing both Zaus's and Arden's faces. "Network Lockdown", echoes through the chamber beckoned by Olain's silent command. Arden uses the experience of sectioning off Moonsea to carve out a section of the mass for Zaus to possess independently with Sam's music providing stabilization under great strain to his vocal cords. Arden guides Zaus into creating their own new body, taller and more muscular than before, perhaps based on how they saw themselves or if they had more nutrition earlier perhaps. Shifting to a soft soothing lullaby Sam's vocal cords thank them with the stress of the song now focused on one rather than two facilitating Arden's reincarnation. Arden attempts removing the scars from their former life and improve his eyesight correcting his vision; their scars are physically removed but the scars still exist in their spiritual self and their vision greatly improves beyond five feet (where they without their spectacles as it had been before). Olain sweeps up the puppo magi and Zaus in their arms happy they both had eventually survived the encounter with Mr. Moonsea and Donique Perch. Arden encourages them to discover themselves, that following the return of the Dragon's Tear they did not evaporate, and they get to assert themselves as a person now. Sam lays down next to Therrin and with a soft tune instills them with vitality awakening them from their unconscious state just in time to witness the spire awaken firing a beam of transparent energy towards Coeurasa. Moonsea is dubbed Munsei accidentally and remembered as a way to aggravate the villain. "I suppose I was wrong Sam, I could come back", Arden. Olain reveals that Arden and Zaus are now among the Umbra operating in the cross being tracked by the spire networks a real welcome to the family from Olain with all the associated baggage that comes with it. A second burst of force emits from the spire sending structures atop the spire skyward, sundered by the sudden change in gravity, and the people of Roqueport floating along all around while the Spire regained its full functionality. "I've never been dead before", observes Therrin.

Ep 22: Arden on Ice

Published: Sep 26th, 2023

Arden’s special skill is to encourage rage and then have it directed at them… even in death.

The beaten down party in states of neigh death and chuckle at the idea of a lingering threat beyond the large door before them. Sam grapples with the 5 stages of grief, delusion, and content with their stockpile of healing potions - with a renewed energy in their breast their time has come.

Upon entering the final chamber the party is greeted by scrolling text made of light and a black mass bubbling within a great well. The muck takes on the shape of an ancient feral dragon, something that Moonsea could control from afar, something that could wipe out Arden's friends. Golems likely recently spawned from the spire stone walls march forward at Moonsea's direction. Spectral Zaus charges the dragon getting caught in and absorbed into the inky mass. Additional constructs join the fray: warriors and mages by their carved appearances. Arden confronts Moonsea through the umbra's connection to the goopy mass. Bata ponders using his rage and a rage enhancing beverage to square their rage. Old order mage Mc Jenkins possesses a warrior construct and swings their mighty great sword like they had never before missing their targets. The constructs charge and Therrin catches a critical hit by blade end and the crystalline mages emit lighting and ice from their palms and staffs disrupting party formation and strategy. A race against the clock as the constructs get in the way of the party advancement as they look to restore the dragon's tear to its resting place below the inky blob. With a big gulp Bata entered a state of rage, the bearbarian strolls over and with a mighty swing of his magical hammer bonks a warrior construct sending crack streaming throughout its body. In confronting Moonsea Arden charges its spirit and Mr. Moonsea's stomach opens into a gapping sea of teeth and Arden dives in falling deeper the puppo see two souls. Moonsea slapping about Zaus dismissively while the umbra seemiongly focuses on more pressing matters, Arden addresses Moonsea with a fury, and sends Zaus words of encouragement. Striking at break-points Therrin and Sam set to work breaking through the constructs as they advance sending shards of crystal flying all about. Jenkins swings wildly like a spinning top find purchase in an opponent breaking another construct in half. The mages send more lightning towards Therrin, Sam, and Olain to greater effect than before releasing a blast of force Bata's way rustling his matted fur. With their blunt force weapons Olain and Bata break their opponents into bits while Therrin and Sam follow suit with the simple strategy of hitting them harder than before. Arden pushes through force of will to throw Moonsea out of their connection to the inky mass but is overwhelmed as the umbra prepares to swallow both Zaus and Arden. Indignant Arden threatens the elder umbra provoking laughter from Mr. Moonsea. With the tempo of Sam's song the party resists the dragons imposing roar steeling their hearts against a primal fear awakening in their chests. Bata pushes forward empowered by rage and rage water smashing through statue one by one. Arden continues to throw a monkey wrench into the gears of progress Moonsea has set into motion. As a statue halts Bata's hammer with its paws Therrin slides in stabbing at the creature's armpit finding a critical point shattering the enemy across the floor. Encouraged Sam plunges their spear into the statue before them despite low rolls they get their licks in, as does Olain all three to the sounds of shattered crystal. As the dragon takes its form fully the remaining statues take up a defensive wall around the emergent threat.

Ep 21: Still Hearts

Published: Sep 24th, 2023

Combat comes to a close and the party stock of their dire situation. Arden and Bata have a moment to say what could be goodbye and Sam makes busy grabbing all the shiny loot.

Therrin, having observed her mother melting into the wall of the spire and leaving behind a lookalike ponders. Bata also takes stock of Zaus and Arden frozen in place and Sam breathing peacefully on the spire stone floor. Olain promises to help Therrin use the spire to locate her mother if they can get the dragon's tear back into its proper place combat now having resolved for the moment. Arden feeling their time may be up attempts to speak to the party through bata's whisper stone drawing the bear to Arden's frozen body. Beaten, tired, and somber Bata kneels attempting to reach out to Arden feeling the puppo's spectral touch on the bear's cheek. Touching the whisper stone Arden materializes in a shifting ghastly silhouette of their former self for bata's eyes only. The two exchange what could be their final words together, bearing their souls to one another. Sam alerts Therrin to their back glowing after she helps Sam up and she finds the tear brilliantly emitting sickly joyous light. Within they can see dancing bodies multiplying as they dance, bringing the chant from before to Therrin's mind. Olain anxiously encourages their friends to hurry up anxiety seeping into their mind as the silhouettes continue too multiple. Bata mourns for Arden and that their connection to their whisper stone being made by their favorite puppo departing them for the great beyond. Bata had been searching for the connection for so long and being made like this, in this place, with Arden leaving him almost crushed him entirely. "I wanted us to be a family together, even Therrin" - Arden Meanwhile Sam rounds up what loot they could find, discovering many potions and oils mostly labeled as if to ease Olain's anxiousness giving the delay purpose beyond mournful goodbyes. Bata gets a request to get close to Therrin and upon touching her Arden appears to her confusing her entirely. While they get caught up Sam tries to thaw out Arden'd pupcicle body not realizing Arden is no longer alive. Rushing over Bata gets Arden to talk to Sam whom quickly becomes bewildered and determined like Therrin, to save their friend. Arden pushes the malevolent presence from the tear with a great exertion of their will. The presence focuses its efforts in the next chamber, a gathering storm on the party's horizon. "Ehhyy, Therrin, you're sparkling" - Sam to Therrin "Well your frozen in a block of ice so let someone else try for a change" - Sam to Ghostly Arden over saving their life

Ep 20: Hollowed Halls

Published: Sep 22nd, 2023

The party battles Dominque and her allies from the Order of Magi and Knights of Atlas ultimately defeating the industry magnate at the pinnacle of the spire just before what could be the control center. The uneasy moment of peace comes with a bitter cost as the party is not yet sure if Zaus or Arden survived the frozen magics of the Order Magi.

Olain and Zaus take up the front as the Knights of Atlas approach and a toxic cloud materializes threatening the duo as the gas moves in. An Order mage transports themselves across the field taking up position beyond the dispelling and ice walls respectively to get a good position surveying the party. Arden sees an opportunity then drawing near to his own dispelling screen eyeing the discerning teleporting mage having taken to leering over the party with their glowing magical paws. Sam rushes the mage holding onto their illusion of Arden, the order mage dodges away from the bard to safety. Olain takes a circumstantial 69 damage and Therrin feels their connection to their goopy friend disrupted by the knight's weapons. Arden engages the Order mage of glowing paws in the vigorous spell battle severely draining the mage of their magic prompting the magi to hurl a burst of life chilling cold catching the party fugitively flat-footed creating both a pup and ratcicle pushing their souls from their bodies. In their spectral selves Arden and Zaus feel the pull of the dragon's tear holding them here in the spire and circumstantially the afterlife. Therrin propped up against a wall between clean air and the doom cloud eyes Zaus and rushes to attempt to scoop up the frozen rat-kin but is unable to separate him from the floor. Running further from Zaus to the entry way Therrin threatens to smash the Dragon's Tear if Donique does not stop prompting a harsh empathic blast of feedback from Olain that they would not under any circumstance harm the Tear deflating Therrin's resolve. Zaus charges through the dispelling wall announcing their discovery to Arden who is matter of factly confirming what he sees as an obvious result ultimately encouraging (if unintentionally) Zaus to continue their experiments. The mage with the scary magic paws point-blanks Sam and Bata with a burst of hot fire disappointed the two have survived thus far. Bata rages and swings on the mage with all his fury nearly punting the mage with his mighty hammer, bonking the mage into unconsciousness. Arden charges into a knight with their ghost body attempting to possess the person discovering the "knight" was a spirit piloting the suit of armor now controlled by Arden. "This isn't what I expected" - Arden after gaining control of a knight with their spirit. Given the chance Arden sets themself to damaging the knight's armor creating a buildup strain that could break the construct. The loose spirit zooms itself in Zaus's direction. Therrin scales the wall of the room hurling themselves over the ice wall towards their mother and near Olain standing before a second mage (this one conscious). Observing Arden's frozen body Sam has difficulty ascertaining Arden's living status and Olain puts the remaining mage to bed (knocks them out). Zaus whom is now floating attempts to tumble around the knightly spirit who kicks and slaps at them catching Zaus in between their movements. A final magus throws up a wall of ice at the entrance while the doom cloud crawls over Zaus's frozen body, fortunately protected by the encapsulating ice. Doninique, keeping a good eye on Therrin through the ice wall, continues to drink potions as they prepare for their servants to fall. Bata confronts the final knight and throws all their strength into their wrathful swings denting the armored knight. When Bata hits the knight their whisper stone feels as though the malicious presence from earlier is within the spire and near. Arden continues to keep the original suit pilot spirit out buoying the spirit back and forth between Arden and Zaus. Therrin approaches the knight Arden has possessed and assists Arden by attacking the construct and Arden warns Therrin to move away as the suit grows much closer to overloading. Zaus zooms away from the mage while the Order Mage is back stabbed by Dominque, no sooner than the mage hits the floor does Dominque run their cape over the mage transmuting his body into naught but dust. Sam drops after the remaining knight catches him unprepared and bata stands over him batting away the knight and protecting Sam while their rage continues. Arden now ready to self-destruct charges towards the other knight and encourages the spirit of the betrayed magi to fight Therrin's mom. Therrin meanwhile loots the downed opponents for shiny loot gaining a magical ring in the process. Olain punches at the wall currently separating the party from Dominque with exaggerated swings surprising the older Sergal looking into a window of her younger self through the ice, a younger her next to Therrin shattering through the barrier one inch of ice with each powerful swing of their arms. Zaus encourages the betrayed mage to follow them through the door Dominique closed earlier, announcing there is a lot of stuff in there. With the threat of the doom cloud nearing Sam's unconscious Bata takes a swig of a potion, tries to let the knight know the party was here to return the tear which the knight is directly attempting to prevent unbeknownst to bata. Arden uses the nearly exploding body to drag Sam into the dispelling screen saving their friend as the cloud billows away repelled by the magic eating wall. Therrin assists Olain by striking the ice wall in key points with her rapier causing fractures and cracks in the ice making the wall easier for Olain to plow through. The knight informs Bata the return of the Tear was never intended to succeed as they strike at Bata who on their knees down to a single point of vitality in a display to convince the construct to side with them realizes that they are not dealing with a friend and casts a spell entangling roots spell to ensnare the hostile knight. Bata scampers towards Zaus's body. With a final request given Arden asks Bata to take care of Sam and the mage self-destructs causing the other construct to explode wiping out some of the doom cloud with their arcane fire. Therrin pleads with her mother to stop the fight; she only wants to undo her mistake followed by Olain demanding the ice wall be dropped. Donique exclaims that she had been defeated by her daughter as a downed mage takes on her appearance and the party observes a moment of uneasy peace. "So you heal magically but have no medical skill and cast spells but have no magical knowledge" - Arden's musings about Sam

Ep 19: Without Your Poison

Published: Sep 20th, 2023

Olain guides their friends through the spire connecting with the Dragon’s Tear to fill in the information they lack and through that connection an elder umbra strikes at Olain and Therrin through their mutual connection. Surrounded by their chosen family, their friends set to work breaking the connection and they proceed deeper in pondering on the visions they saw and talk their way past the guards stationed inside until Perch stands in their way once more.

Realizing the spire had been harvested for industry drove a fury in Bata's heart learning why they were able to enter the spire at such an uncustomary point. Griff pushes the cart out of the carved-out spire sending it careening into the Roqueport Dump, wishing the party well, and leapt from the great height of the spire to the city below leaving them to their quest. Olain absorbs the Dragon's Tear dulling their sense of self and guides the party through the carved-out pathways of the spire utilizing their connection to the tear to fill in the information they lack. Olain seems to have trouble remembering the faces of their companions initially after beginning their direct connection to the tear. Sam keeps a grasp on Zaus while they travel to ensure the rogue does not stray far from the group. Bata gets to see the extent of the excavation, thousands of greedy irregular cuts, and the echoes of their passing mixing with the sounds of the city bouncing off the hallowed cavern walls. Therrin becomes aware of a sinister presence entering Olain's mind through their empathic connection. Small azure shaded spectral figures appear dancing singing "The Moon Will See" centered on Therrin - no one else seems to notice their presence. The longer they dance the more solid they seem to become to Therrin and song building in presence over senses until they felt as though they could take Therrin's mind the way their mother attempted earlier through the enchanted dagger. With determination Therrin rallies the party to remove the dragon's tear from Olain to break the connection that this sinister presence has over their friend. Feeling responsible for Olain's adventure into personhood Arden tries to draw them back to themself, to recenter on whom they are while the sinister presence takes hold. As this happens Bata's whisper stone resonates creating a similar dancing blue figure with the same song and dance Therrin saw earlier. They break the connection by cutting the stone out of Olain diminishing the Umbra to a puddle on the ground and an amused cackle echoes from the tear into the chamber quieting as the influence fades. Olain comes to reforming and confirms the presence was an elder umbra and that the party is near their destination. Utilizing Olain's current appearance of Dominque Perch nobel of Roqueport the party attempts to get by a group of trained elite Roqueport Guards rather successfully with a short back and forth afterwards between the guards and Arden going something like: Guards: "You look familiar, are you a famous wizard?" - to Mr. Renshaw Arden: "I will be a more famous wizard if you do not so as you are told." Guards: "Yes SIR!" As the party approaches the inner chambers, they meet two order magi marked for the same order branch as Meunice and a few heavily armed guards adorned with obviously magical equipment, likely making them Knights of Atlas. Confronted with her mother, Therrin and Olain freeze taking a moment to speak to the elder Perch before the guards are ordered to seize the intruders. Sam opts to encourage his allies with a rock inspired power ballade giving them additional strength as they battle Domique Perch at the peak of the Roqueport Spire. The party makes quick work of the entry level guards now realizing they had been tricked, the Order mages prep their defensive magics and the Knights of Atlas take up position controlling the party's options for mobility warping the battlefield with walls of ice and fields of magical energy flowing through the chamber semi visible auroras with unknown qualities to contend with. Therrin and Olain square up together working like a well-oiled machine bonking down what entry level guards linger before sending them down the stairs with their friends, a package deal. Sam takes cover and makes a convincing illusionary copy of Arden giving their opponents more than one target to focus on and so the battle then truly began.

Ep 18: Maximum Stealth

Published: Sep 18th, 2023

With all the caution and stealth they can muster the party heads to the Crown of Roqueport with Griff aiding them through the gates before depositing them “safely” within the underbelly of the port’s spire.

Arden fights the weight of the conscious and the might of bed gravity with Bata's council getting ready for the day unaware of the imminent mission at hand. The party reconvenes laying out their next steps in the limited time they have left beginning to come to terms with the danger of Roqueport, the dueling families, and especially being under the direct gaze of Dominque Perch. Life is a precious thing, fragile, and beautiful. Pattosh greets the party with gifts for Arden all of which raise the wanted mage's concerns as well intentioned as they might be coming from a fellow rogue mage. The gifts being scrolls of magic for Arden to learn and use, Pattosh being far more hospitable than their sibling offers the party information before the mission begins. Utilizing a hunting caravan, the party loads up to get past the guardian Crown of Roqueport. After considering hiding under the hunter's quarry, they are assured they can simply hide within the caravan and need not utilize the product as camouflage much to their relief. Arden uses this travel time to prepare their spells shortly after claiming a wall mounted workstation in the caravan, Sam catches and retrieves Zaus from the bottom of the wagon, and Therrin paces about the taking in their surroundings ponderous. No longer in the thick of combat, naps, and riveting conversation Therrin and Bata really feel the soreness of their bones and muscles drive at their thoughts. When inspections occur at the gates despite the best efforts of the caravan and the driver breaks for it ramming their cart through the checkpoint. With a lift from Pattosh the cart magically gains flight just before it would have gone careening over the edge of city streets guided by Griff to a mined-out entrance on the underbelly of the spire.

Ep 17: Introspection and Interrogation

Published: Sep 16th, 2023

Inside their premium studio apartment the party rests, bakes cakes, and cleans themselves up getting ready to interrogate Abigal once Griff sends for them.

The party discovers their premium studio apartment is a solid stone structure with no way out, a few couches, a bed, and a small medievalish kitchenet. A chance emerged to escape when Zaus reported back on Griff's activities but was unaware that the door locks itself upon closing and lacks any pins, keyholes, and or other mechanisms for tinkering they could locate. Bata holds Arden as they take stock of their injuries and comforts their partner, Sam sings their friends to a deep-deep sleep through a magical lullaby. Strange dreams come over those who fall into deep sleep, dreams most disturbing, and a bond between Bata and Therrin is tested in that headspace. The great towel rationing begins as Bata makes use of the cloth for their personal hygiene washing up at the deep kitchen sink and wrap a towel about themselves reasoning you do not cook while indecent -- Bata's rule. Olain joins Bata and they make do creaming the available butter, sugar, eggs, and flour; with the power of the wee oven, they make pound cakes for the party. Bata, a dutiful night guard can later be found slumped over in the corner covered in cake - crumbs and chunks. Sam cleans off the group's equipment from residues left over after the bath and concerts while the rest are preoccupied. Olain consumes whole cakes for breakfast, Arden awakens in and strange place, and pushes Bata away. Arden is broken over the conflict at the bathhouse, is consoled by Bata and Zaus. Olain compares the layers of deceit within the city down to its individual members, the feeling is dense... like the cakes. Nightmare monster with an affinity for baking. Therrin negotiations an escape from the most dubious of sources relying on each Roqueport denizen to look out for themselves to a fault.

Ep 13: Bubbles ‘n Butt Bathhouse Adventure

Published: Sep 6th, 2023

The party makes their way to a local bathhouse and meets faces new and old. Sam and Bata entertain their fans with a meet and greet at the bath drawing local interest while their friends attempt to avoid notoriety.

Bata ponders on the successes and numerous difficulties the party has faced thus far in executing their plans. That despite those challenges they were going to meet Grif and before that they were going to have a refreshing dip at the bath down the road. Seems within the "Spire's Grace" facilities like public baths are made communal to maximize the amount of usable space for industry and minimize necessary space for inexpensive housing. In an effort to keep Therrin and Olain in eye shot they disguise the two and haul them off to the Roqueport Bubbles and Butts Bathhouse. The locals gather around Sam and Bata as the party makes its way to the Bubbles and Butts Bathhouse offering compliments, attention, and at times mildly concerning comments. Sam detects an opportunity to charge for their autographs while bata freely gives to their fans. Arden jets ahead of the party in pursuit of a warm relaxing bath. The party discovers that the Bathhouse has a quest for adventurers within their membership (search for proprietor's daughter -- a missing iguana kin). Frankin the feral rodent, Arden's familiar, guards the party's possessions while they freshen up deeper in the bathhouse. Sam manages to get their spear into the baths and manages to set up a meet and greet for their fans to which the proprietor is extensively thrilled. Olain attaches to the bottom of the bath for warmth as the party gradually relaxes their concentration causing Therin's purple squirrely disguise to evaporate over time. From that disguise of a violet squirrel comes the Bloody Baroness Therrin Perch, whose infamy is best kept to the inner bathhouse away from public scrutiny oh what a time for a meet and greet. The battle of the bubbles begins when Abigale makes her début at the bath with her myriad pirate crews addressing the party ill equipped for a sudden brawl.

Ep 12: The Show Must Go On

Published: Sep 4th, 2023

The designation of fur-troubled fuzzy is transferred from Therrin to Bata with the power of song and party favors as the concert reaches its peak and the group finds rest. They also find themselves in desperate need of a trip to the local bathhouse discovering that life under the spire employs many of these such public services to save on space.

The party sends off the out of sorts guard and Zaus is informed they are to stay far away from the rowdy pirates --- especially to not emulate the crowd, especially the pirates! Plans are made to visit a nearby bathhouse as the party has gone months without a bath; Therrin with her shirt of self-cleaning is by far the least self-conscious of the bunch. Therrin rests well with her XL purse, Bata's monies, and a loose ten gold coins all resting with her in bed. Bata experiences a Roqueport tradition of rubber pants being filled with beer and ale, Therrin explains it is to emphasize excess. Not much longer and both Bata and Sam reach the end of their rope getting help back up to the room evading the pirates having thoroughly distracted them earlier. Upon awakening Bata takes on the role of fur-troubled party member, reliving Therrin from her season 1 designation. Sam becomes one with the Bell Bottom Patchwork Pants. Therrin begins reading through a sack of fan mail judging the writing capability of the authors and notes the different ship names used in the works. Battam and Sata for instance seem to be the best of the bunch and much to her delight Therrin continues to find new fan-made stories in the bag.

Published: Aug 10th, 2023

Adapting to the challenges ahead as best they can the party plans ahead over Bata Cakes and Therrin begins to grow closer to their Umbral ally.

Following the interviews Arden had with the party and a growing concern that the Umbra and Zaus are rarely in sight. Bata has creaky door dreams that keep them sleeping with the bugalüs. The party gives their best effort with one of their greatest fears, swimming successfully out of danger. Sam appraises their cabin furniture for abnormal usage, especially their desk and twin bed. Content as they can be with their cabin they theorize if the boat had wheels on it could it then ride rails. The party works out their plans for infiltrating Roqueport over Bata Cakes. They take into account that the town celebrates the exile of the Courier's guild, and thus Sam might be best served by presenting as an ordinary visitor. They agree that more information is required to make a concrete plan though they do have different options to reach the spire and place the tear. The party may need new clothes given Sam's identity as a Courier, Bata is not dressed for city life, Therrin is Therrin, and Arden looks like a sailor. The conversation shifts to escaping jail cells and gallows in a worst-case scenario. Shortly after planning focuses on the dire situations, Therrin leaves the party for a stroll encountering the Umbra in all its eldritch glory atop the deck.

Ep 5: Interviews with Friendly Floofs

Published: Aug 8th, 2023

Arden takes time to connect with their party members as friends and has some frank conversations they were not expecting. The interviews and their takeaways occured in the following order:

Bata’s Turn: Shoeing Zaus from his cabin Arden prepares themself for some quality time with their beloved Bata, time aboard the ship to have a heart to heart.

Therrin’s Turn: Arden invites their dear friend Therrin to their cabin for a riveting conversation and inquiry into their personal history post Roqueport life.

Sam’s Turn: Arden and Sam confide in one another after Sam’s friends offer them support below deck, Sam points out the ways Arden is an asset and points out they seem to have trouble relieving stress.

Zaus’s Turn: Esponage can lead to questions, Zaus betrayed by their partner in crime is brough to Arden’s desk, and while the conversation goes deep puppo suffers a few critical hits and healing words.

## Bata's Turn Our adventures, having previously fled Pinicola by boat find themselves with time to ponder and the ever-present threat of the mighty water spider. Desiring some one-on-one time with Bata, Arden harries Zaus out of the bed chamber and closes the door tight. Arden begins querying their companion to Bata's surprise, the mighty arcane puppo is ever thorough. Arden discovers Bata had spent much time as a bugalüs herder and Bata allegedly left their home for the cuisine and drink of the outside world. Arden notes Bata had been quick to settle into the Cobble family, Bata's family turns out to be much larger than even Zaus's kin, and Bata mentions the wilds of their home was far tamer than the wilderness at Mama Noms homestead. Arden restless with the parenthood/mentoring of Zaus, Bara reminds them they aren't in it alone flustering the smoll doggo. Switching subjects Arden inquires as to the details of the Bisemutum people and offers to get Bata a fairytale book in Roqueport noting it might be an offensive depiction of their faith. Bata deflecting away from too many personal details, instead focuses on their observations of the umbra compared to their expectations -- the creature they were traveling with was markedly different than the stories of old. Therrin although not present, becomes the focus of conversation. Bata is in resolute support of her mission to restore the Dragon's Tear to its spire, how she came to the decision, and whether she would fall from their vessel practicing her balance from all many of locations. Bata offers their stone to Arden, their talk of magic rocks brings the realization that Arden's communing with the Tear before could have been severely dangerous and that most people commune with a singular shard as opposed to the overwhelming mass of souls a Dragon's tear possess as a whole. Mulling over their past experiences, their guilt for what they could have stopped if not for their naiveté. Arden resolves to tame their temper and be kinder to Therrin going forward. With lighter hearts Bata leaves Arden to fetch the majestic Therrin balancing flawlessly on the bow of the ship. ## Therrin's Turn Opting to not dramatically kick in Arden's bedroom door, the Sailing Sergal decided to quietly enter and plop down crossing her legs and arms denoting her seriousness. There does appear to be a limited number of vantage points Therrin can balance, incidentally leading to Therrin's advice, "If you want to know how to sack a ship you better know how to sail one". Asking Therrin if they had ever sacked a ship they discovered the number has been well more than zero spawning unexpected anxiety in Arden. Fortunately, city guards can be easily bribed with money especially in Roqueport. Arden does not miss the opportunity to remind Therrin she is a wanted criminal with no less than the following minimum counts of: - x12 vandalism - x3 assault - x7 larceny - x1 illegal use of cheese in a legal proceeding All discovered to have been expunged by the Perch Family Trust Fund. Upon deeper inquiry Arden discovered there were depths to Therrin's past that might have been painful for them to swallow leading to the rebellious phase that brought them into Arden's life. When questioned about the party's stay at Mama Noms Farm they remembered it as a wonderful experience until she was reminded about the poison, upset stomach, hair loss, and hallucinations. Therrin explains she did not run from her mother because she felt responsible for her actions in trying to hurt her mom, she hurt others and wanted to take responsibility - for Therrin this is when she went to-far. Therrin sees Arden as always unhappy so they might be hard to read... much to his chagrin. Therrin admits she was disinterested with Zaus joining the group and once Zaus settled in, they wanted to give them the best shot they could as a member of the party and are glad for the addition now. Arden admits he would have destroyed the tear to save Therrin's life while they were unconscious and that was interesting for her to hear considering all they had been through up to now. Therrin does not often think of her sister as more than a talentless hake with no future beyond what mother was going to let her be. Therrin has had to draw lines and physically distance herself with family for her own mental health, boundaries she knows will not be respected. Writing herself out of the Perch family does not worry Therrin as they would be in danger regardless. Therrin believes in Arden's ability to raid ships and sink the vessels of their enemies were they to join in the business of piracy one day; danger can often be the spice of life for Therrin after all. Then the conversation turned to Reginald and Therrin became serious, spoke fondly of him as a source of many life lessons, and her devotion to the man for what he gave her for the time they were together. Reginald, as loved as he was, chose Therrin's mother over her hurting Therrin giving the Sergal conflicting emotions she wrestles with even now whenever she thinks of him. Arden apologizes for how they handled themselves at the funeral then unexpectedly compares their willingness to put themselves into harm's way to Therrin's devil may care attitude towards danger. Arden is thanked for their efforts and Therrin requests to leave and does so wiping away a tear as she goes. ## Sam's Turn Zaus makes it their personal mission to locate Sam below deck, having already spied in on Therrin and Arden, and with Sam atop a barrel of grog looking sadly into a bracelet resting in their paw. In his own way Zaus gets himself into trouble bringing his friends together before Sam is directed away to a meeting with Arden in their private cabin. With a nervous fidget Sam sits down for their "interview", Sam from Atlas, works in the less upkept parts of the delivery routes. Indeed, a postal worker that has seen a series of unfortunate events and little else to send home about. Arden notes that Sam had mentioned a person being pulled from the deck in front of them and connects that to their aversion to being on the deck of the ship. Part of Sam's life before the adventure was intentional isolation on their part, doing distant deliveries for clients like Moma Noms facilitated the get money and go strategy away from civilization type of lifestyle. Through query Sam shares it is normal for a courier to not know the contents of their delivery, they delivered as couriers, and local authorities enforced their laws that role was not for his guild. Arden indirectly asks if Sam was in fact "Mister Noms" and the answer is... Arden and Sam go over the dangers of the ocean and working through the numerous dangers Sam is more or less put further at ease, much more so than before they talked. Sam compares the Umbra to Arden being calculating and always thinking. Talking of the group they had formed Sam states the party is the closest thing to family and they mean that seriously. Sam pints out that Okuma saved Arden by choice over themselves, an alternative view point to Okuma died because of Arden. Sam believes Arden is the one to put the group together and facilitated plenty for the group in their own right. Arden has a hard time seeing their own self-worth, Sam doesn't seem to have much difficulty pointing their contributions out giving Arden much to think on. They also point out Arden doesn't seem to know how to relieve stress Sam asks how Arden is doing, he ultimately is glad he has his found family though he may not yet refer to them in such manner. Sam offers to help even if Arden wants to go to Atlas and dig deep into the order through their friends and family back in Atlas. As Arden finishes and Sam leaves there is a sense of closeness despite distance that has indeed weighed anchor. ## Zaus's Turn Upon the end of Sam's conversation, the monkey left Arden's bedroom to find Bata and Zaus had been listening in on their conversation. Sam might be of the opinion that these two together are bound to get into mischief... Caught red handed Bata deposits Zaus into the chair across from Arden for questioning while not emphasizing they had been also listening in to the degree Arden would tolerate. Upon inquiry Zaus lays claim to all of the different pronunciations of their name with love in their heart, all are accepted titles thus far. They also don't have a birth certificate and don't have a definitive spelling of their name as they are still learning to write. Before joining the group, they took care of raising their siblings, mom was focused on her many enterprises, and Zaus didn't have time for much beyond being a big brother for their siblings and farm operations. They were happy when their siblings did well and played games with them; they did rib Arden as being the most fun to play with alluding to the time they beat them good at cards. They don't remember their father or if there were multiple, no memory of them as a presence in their early life much less as people. Zaus had to always be aware of who was watching them, how they presented themselves, and the example they set for their siblings. Zaus also guesses that Arden had a very lonely childhood, which they did, and a critical hit is scored. Zaus identifies Therrin as a fun mess upon Arden saying everyone is different with different upbringings. Arden tells Zaus they are the closest thing to a son they will ever have. Zaus also says they feel the freest they ever have around the party, they mused that perhaps part of the reason their mom let them go is they didn't get to live with themselves as a focus or had a childhood in the traditional sense. Speaking to life perspective Zaus states that if they jump right in then they don't spend time worrying, they won't get paralyzed by all the variables, and the party covers for one another. Zaus doesn't want to go back home because they think their dreams would die and/or Meunice would appear on his doorstep one day. Zaus is reading books more now but they say reading people is more fun. The two casters muse over the ways they interact with magic. Magic is like communicating without words, to communicate to be understood, or taxes. Zaus did not understand what was going on in the spire but they noted magic users were affected differently and then that non-studious casters were affected differently; potentially bruising Arden's caster's ego. Being unprepared or ill equipped has never stopped the party before and Zaus takes pride in that. Zaus lets Arden know their stopping of the umbra's punch back when they first met the creature has made them more comfortable with taking bigger risks causing Arden's anxiety to once again spike. Zaus's biggest fear besides Meunice, is losing members of the party, their friends here on the boat, they are glad Arden is taking initiative to talk to their mutual friends, and worries that without a push Therrin might self-isolate similar to what Arden might recall Sam was doing in their own way.

Ep 4: Upon Gordon’s Heels

Published: Aug 6th, 2023

Courier Gordon becomes the center of debate for the party as they consider abandoning him and their cart to the town guard in their escape through the back of the Couriers’ Guildhall. Following their escape, the party makes preparations for their time on the sea as well as how exactly they would get onto the water, and far away from Pinicola.

Therrin notifies the party there are issues out front the courier's guildhall, they realize that the town guards are making announcements of their intent to search their "abandoned cart", they also realize that all their things, and "potential contraband" is in their cart - they also don't know where their traveling companion Gordon might be taking a nap (probably the cart). The town guards break open the back of the wagon and the party debates how much they like Gordon while the guards deliberate Gordon's fate.

Ep 3: Turmoil Pagoda

Published: Aug 4th, 2023

Our time with Julias and Kayde comes to an end as does the mystery of the formerly sealed wooden crate.

This Hero Sandwich has layers folks, let's dive in: At the Gates: Gordon comes to grips with reality at the end of their long rest while Kayde realizes Zaus is hard to keep track of. Therrin accidentally manages to communicate nap time for their bugalüs gently whipping the reins at the gates of Pinicola. For a moment the party reminisces their past exploits in the great dock town and firmly decide they do not care of this place. Bluffing the town guard, they manage to get through the gates for half off, they are all "members" of the couriers' band after all. On inquiry the party is directed to the Travelers Pagoda by an unnamed "wall guard", their only other option for a medical care in town was the surgeon squirrel Indigo -- a professional they would rather avoid. With a deep breath the party once again melds into Pinicola traffic, this time attempting not to draw the attention of the guard as they had in their last visit. At the Pagoda: A frog, owl, and squirrel are encountered at the Pagoda deep in philosophical debate, all eager to help the party. While the philosophers have much trouble with the crate Kayde pops it right open with their trusty Order Issued crowbar and the philosophers get to work restoring the statue of Archmage Okuma. After reminiscing their history as stone smith that philosopher opens a secret compartment in the pagoda floor containing the group's magical healing equipment and supplies, no latent abilities it would seem. Through the combined efforts of the philosophers, Kayde, and Arden break the spell cast on Okuma returning his form to flesh and blood. Unfortunately, it would appear Okuma is missing their soul, unconscious, and unable to take care of their own wellbeing. The party considers the lake they had been informed about while the philosophers make a plan for themselves to escape the forces who's plans they have now meddled in by restoring Okuma though they know not the identity of the archmagi. Looking into Okuma's listless eyes Arden prepares to leave and Bata joins them comforting the troubled pupo as they go. At the Courier's Guild: Therrin and Julias lay the injured on the lawn in front of the Pagoda and have a heart to heart on what inspires each other to action. Julias utterly confounded why the princess of the Perch family is not working to bring order to the cross through economic strength suggesting that leaving the Perch family was a detriment to The Cross Therrin is responsible for. Julias turns the robbers over to the authorities from the yard deflecting attention away from the party triggering a public flogging and parade of shame. Julias and Kayde mull over the questionable nature of their employers, perhaps even questioning to what extent the senator was involved with Okuma's current situation or Meunice's plans. Julias and Kayde hand over the package to a fungoid contact who had been tailing the party since they entered the city. Leaving shortly after handing over the package they nearly miss the fungoid's emotional breakdown seeing the contents of the package at the pagoda, a promise with a Meunice twist. Inside the guildhall the party sends out letters to Elder Percus in Bisemutum and letter back to Mama Noms and the Cobble family doing their best to ignore the state of the world outside the guildhall. Meanwhile outside Julias manages to gain custody of the grieving fungoid to release them outside the city doing their best effort consoling the stranger on the way. The party leaves outside the back of the Courier's Guild making their way towards Roqueport, one step closer to returning the dragon's tooth home.

Mr. Arden Renshaw’s diary entry

The Rat Bucket Inn is not an Inn. However it happens to be where three separate paths join together. Bata Amica, a towering Bear Barbarian exploring lands outside his own, finds himself discovering the intricacies of money and buying beer, as well as getting a history lesson about the tavern and the town with his silkie steak. While that happens, Therrin Perch, a gray eastern sergal from the city of Roqueport, silently slips into the tavern trying to blend into the crowd. Finally Arden Renshaw, a short, thin white dog in a blue waistcoat and red cloak, enters for a rest while on a mission to find a "missing" person. Arden and Bata get treated to some surprisingly good bread made by the Rat Bucket Inn's cook, Gertrude, and Fredrickson gives the bear some honey mead whiskey. Arden reveals that he's on a mission to study the spires, however the Spire in Roqueport is shut down due to the power source being stolen. Therrin's interest wanes as she eavesdrops from her nearby table, but before she's able to leave, Arden pipes up. "You look very familiar." He says loudly. "She kind of reminds me of this picture that I saw-" he continues before being cut off by a sergal's claw to his lips. Arden pulls out a poster of Therrin's self image that says "Missing: Reward of 50,000 gold." Fredrickson manages to get his paws on the poster and promptly clears out his tavern, save for the bear, dog, and sergal. With the Rat Bucket Inn cleared out and locked up, Fredrickson asks the group for a good reason to let them go instead of turning in Therrin for the reward. Through diplomacy, bluffs, and intimidation Arden manages to convince Fredrickson that it's ill-advised to do anything to harm the group. Fredrickson allows them to leave, all the while kicking himself over not taking the opportunity to claim the reward. After that close encounter, Arden explains that he's not after Therrin for the reward, but because he wants her expertise given he figures she's the one who stole from the Roqueport spire. The group decides they need to find a place to stay other than the tavern, and as luck would have it, a small street rat named Cassie tells them of a farm outside of town. With cautious suspicion, the group agrees to follow Cassie.

Game Master

Arden Renshaw

Arden Renshaw

My name is Arden. `Arden Renshaw, Fifth Scribe and Apprentice Abjurer to The Holy Empire of The Crystal Fang’s Order of Arcane Sages`

Arden Renshaw is short and thin white dog, no more than five feet tall and 140 pounds with a single black dot on his left cheek. His head is covered by a wide cloak hood the drapes over his floppy ears and large round glasses. Seen from underneath those glasses are a pair wide, deep blue eyes that constantly scan and analyze the world around him.

He wears a deep red cloak with a small cloak pin of a small scroll, that hides a seemingly new and slightly oversized deep navy waistcoat with brass buttons, held at the waist with a belt that holds a similarly new looking mace, potions, and a very worn and dog eared book on a chain with a rusty clasp holding it shut. His small paws are adorned with linen wrist wraps tap upon the book at his side as he thinks and strategizes his moves, and quickly flips the clasp open and draws the book when he needs to take notes or study his craft.

Beneath his coat, is a close fitting linen tunic, matched by a pair of spotless deep navy breeches and riding boots seeing their first trot through the mud of the world.

Arden is a young prodigy, far too brilliant for his age. He rarely has had few to connect with other than his peers from the order, and has left him detached from the world around him, and more so the people that inhabit it. He often sees most people for their shortcomings, failures, and poor behaviour. This constant scrutiny of those around him has given him a good mind for research and strategy, which he finds to occcasionally be very hard to turn off.

Despite the early onset frown lines beneath his fur, he is still fiercely loyal to those he holds dear, or would plan to if he ever bonded with anyone. He is very driven to do the right thing at all times, even if it grits against his patience like so many things in the world do.

Therrin Perch

Therrin Patch

Therrin is a grey sergal with white chest fluff. She stands roughly 5 feet 6 inches and is clad in flashy leather garments for ease of movement Her particular outfit looks to be better quality than most adventurers usually wear. Aside from the leather, the sergal dons a loosefitting shirt of the finest silk to keep some of her movements hidden from her would be opponents. Tucked into her shirt is a necklace with a signet ring that she keeps hidden most of the time. At her side is her rapier which she’s named Stilton and sits in her modest scabbard when not in action. It’s hilt is ornate and elaborate to the point that it inherently has a story all its own. Overall her attire looks functional, but most importantly, it looks amazing.

Therrin loves adventure and looking cool while doing it. This swashbuckling lass will be the first to jump at any occasion to deal the final blow in any battle. While in action, this sergal is a force to be reckoned with, but all other times she is reserved and has something to hide and always wants to keep moving. You can depend on her in any battle, but not so much for conversation. She will be the first to accept any challenge or job with the hopes it will lead to her next amazing feat.

Bata Amica

Bata Amica

My name is Bata Amica. Bata is a towering Bear Barbarian, he’s strong built and covered in lush white fur. His attire is mostly armor made from large shells of stag beetles. Namely a pauldron over his right shoulder and vambraces over his forearms, both held in place by large dark belts and shell buckles. Below that he wears rough leather garments that have seen some wear, the edges of which are fringed with dark fur. While his chest is bare, a large garment wraps around his midsection, followed by a long loincloth and kilt. A large cloak covers his back, featuring a large but simple burnt in symbol that some whisper is from the lands beyond À Mond.

He rests a large war hammer at his side, one end of the mace was blunt while the other had a chiseled end. A weapon suited for fighting beasts. On his left was a wooden shield, a bit small and unfitting, probably a temporary replacement for a shield he had lost.

His physical appearance is betrayed by his behavior, he’s singing a tune to himself and sporting a friendly smile. He may fumble with his manners and might miss social queues from people, but he’s good hearted, curious, chivalrous, and tends to help others almost to a fault. You can rely on him to assist you in any way.

Samuel M. Horstrom

Samuel M. Horstrom

Samuel M. Horstrom, or Sam, is a white-throated capuchin monkey standing at approximately five foot eight inches. Most of his body is colored an earthy brown, but it fades to white upon his chest and shoulders, spilling slightly down his arms, and wrapping around his face to his forehead. His hair is brown, long, and wavy. His face features a light tan color and his eyes are a dark but intense brown in their own. He wears traveler’s garb, well weathered and worn from use. Simple but sturdy brown leather boots and rough tan cloth pants sit under a tight, well-made but aged light blue cloth shirt, topped by a leather traveling jacket.

Samuel is a Courier, first and foremost, and as such displays a high standard of accountability when it comes to protecting a package or ensuring delivery of a customer’s assets. Unless something jeopardizes his mission as a Courier, Sam tends to be pretty easygoing, enjoying the travels of the world and the sights he sees on his missions. He can be quiet and pensive at times, thinking about life, and energetic and outspoken at others when the troubles of hispast are momentarily forgotten. Sam has no particular ethical or moral drive, carefully weighing economic and personal factors in all things. He cares for others he knows, but unless there’s a crisis he typically does not engage in hasty decisions that could lose business; such is the life of a Courier.

Sam has a certain fondness for the arts that stems from a life of traveling, learning from sailors singing, travelers with hobbies, and performers in caravans. Through the years he’s learned to sing, learned to paint, learned to survive, dance and, most of all, learned how to charm people. Being a Courier was only half the process, he’s met hundreds of associates, clients, hagglers, tradesmen trying to get their way; but most of all it was meeting the travelers. Travelers with hopes, with dreams, destinations, desires, wants, passions. Sam has spent his life listening to them speak, beg, get angry, be romantic, and simply be themselves. Words are their own language to him, hidden beneath the common speak.



One of dozens of Cobble children, standing out from the rest was a necessity growing up giving him common ground with Therrin in terms of their showmanship. Zaus felt a need to leave home in part because there wasn’t a lot of room for growth in town; especially after defeating Arden in a game of strategy and wit. He could have been a rancher, entrepreneur, or something safe but those don’t speak to his adventurous spirit. The opportunity to become a mage at the Order through Arden was inspiring and lucrative, he could manage to take care of and elevate his entire family if he became a success through the Order. That reasoning was enough to convince his mother, particularly after she came to know the people Zaus proposed traveling with. Though deep down the idea of becoming a freelancer like they were feels even more lucrative and exciting a life to live in his mind. Bata reminds him of his mother though perhaps a dose purer but a good source of advice even so.

Recently he started to experience periods of extended sleep where magic seeps from his body as if he were a natural fountain in the world and has begun to harness this ability with the assistance of Arden and Sam, trusting in them to steer him right.
