Zg Session 99

Aleith|DM: Winter 59
Aleith|DM: Reports on the Father of Thunder having him and a gigantic herd of animals roaming the countryside 20-50 miles west of Bole.
Aleith|DM: There are also reports of a small encampment of unknown knights about 10 miles west of Bole. They are sometimes seen at the edges of the giant herd following the Father of Thunder.
Gerald: "Is that normal?"
Zane: "Probably not."
Phyllis: "What part?"
Gerald: "The herd of knights trailing behind."
Phyllis: "If I had to guess, they're members of the Great Hunt."
Phyllis: "But that's a guess."
Gerald: "Hm. Alright."
Phyllis: "This normally happened in the Dreaming, I thought, but given that most of the fey titans have been forced to one side or the other…"
Phyllis: "I suppose we're headed to Bole. Start asking the locals, following the herd."
Gerald: "Guess so yeah."
Phyllis: "What's the damage there, again? Mainly livestock? Or is there some other destruction happening?"
Aleith|DM: Livestock and crops, plus he's occasionally stampeding through towns, crushing buildings under his hooves.
Aleith|DM: Livestock mostly because they're in his herd rather than at various ranches.
Garrett: "What's bigger than a herd? A battalion of cattle?"
Gerald: "I don't think that's a thing."
Garrett: "A bestial influence with enough of them to trample down a mountain."
Chandrasekhar: "I hope I don't have to kill them all, this time."
Zane: "A host."
Garrett: "Let's mosey."
Zane nods and heads out.
Aleith|DM: Where to?
[OOC] Garrett: dano- Bole
[OOC] Aleith|DM: That's your starting point…
[OOC] Garrett: oh then
[OOC] Phyllis: The knights 10 miles west, then?
[OOC] Phyllis: Unless there's someplace to ask around in Bole itself, but.
[OOC] Garrett: yeah knights
Aleith|DM: As you approach the camp, you see several tents, and mounts left untethered, wandering the forest gardens nearby. Familiar dire mastiffs patrol the edges of the camp, and when they spot you, they bark happily, a couple of them approaching you, one of them giving Zane a playful (but forceful) head-butt.
Zane laughs and headbutts it back.
Phyllis lets one approach her and ruffles its ears.
Zane looks around for the camp leader.
Aleith|DM: A few familiar knights with the statures of elves, but completely covered by supple mithral plate armour, follow shortly after, their masks decorated with static expressions, many resembling roots digging into the ground. They wave to you in greeting.
Aleith|DM: Riffian is easy to find with the silver antlers spreading from his helm and the bullet hole still in his breastplate.
Garrett: "Hey-yo. Welcome to the material plane."
Riffian: "Greetings, constables!"
Zane: "Riffian. You all got stuck here after…" He waves vaguely.
Riffian: "Yeah, looks that way. We can't find our way back, but hey! The Father of Thunder is awake too!" You have a feeling he's smiling behind that mask.
Aleith|DM: He's soothing a pair of colts.
Phyllis: "Hard for him to sleep without a Dreaming."
Gerald: "Yeah, we need to fix that."
Garrett: "That's why we're here, to check in and to ask what you've seen, being closer to the action and all."
Riffian: "These little fellers were recently captured from the Father's herd by us. They're only a couple weeks old, but give them a week or two more and they'll be fit to bear riders for the hunt."
Phyllis: "It might be great for you, but he's wreaking havoc on the countryside. Things are a little different on this side of the mirror."
Riffian: "Well, if you're planning on subduing him, my best advice would be to ride up to the titan disguised under bison hides to appear innocuous, get close, then attack while my knight and I help keep the herd at bay so they don't trample ya."
Zane: "Yeah… Kicking his ass is an option, but probably not the top of the list."
Phyllis: "I think we're still licking our wounds from our recent bout with the Ash Wolf. That one came down to diplomacy."
Riffian shrugs. "Well, you can try talking him down, but he's a bit of a party animal."
Phyllis shrugs. "Maybe we could have given the boon he extended to the Father of Thunder? Inflict monogamy on him."
Garrett‘ grins. "Naw, we absolutely have to meet your match."
Zane laughs. "I’ve never tried drinking a fey titan under the table… I'm gonna need a LOT of margaritas."
Phyllis: "Have you even tried a dwarf? Work your way up, at least."
Riffian taps his gauntleted finger against the bottom of his helment. "The Ash Wolf, eh? I would've liked to see that fight."
Zane: "You're a little short for my taste, Ursinho…"
Phyllis: "It was a very short one."
Gerald‘ mumbles under his breath.
Zane: "He rather soundly whipped a large portion of our collective ass, yeah."
Phyllis: "And further sustaining the fight would have been disaster for the town we were protecting."
Phyllis: And left a hole to Jiese undiscovered. But she’s not letting that one slip.
Chandrasekhar: "I -did- invite him to come and fight me. I was impressed, for once."
Phyllis: "Would we still require a disguise and protection if we tried talking him down?"
Phyllis: "Or drinking him down."
Riffian: "Up to you how you wanted to approach him for that. He'd probably run if he saw you in his herd, though. And he's very fast when he wants to be."
Riffian: "We can lend you some horses so you can keep up with him."
Chandrasekhar: "I suppose it's not running from a challenge as much as presenting us with a counter-challenge."
Zane: "Mm."
Phyllis: "Probably faster than even overland flight travel."
Garrett: "Intercept, get his attention in one way or another, and see if he wants an alternate challenge of sorts. Gods help us if it's a race, though."
Chandrasekhar: "Everything has a price, even Titans."
Zane: "Gimme a little time first…"
Phyllis: "How much time?"
Garrett: "And-or figure out a way to get him back to sleep. But I'm not sure if there's a strong enough liquor in Risur."
Phyllis shrugs. "You saw me with that device keeping Delft trapped."
Zane grins at Garrett. "Long enough to head back to town and make a barrel of margarita."
Garrett‘ grins back. "Yeah, at least not with -straight- liquor…"
Zane: "I bet he hasn’t had it in eons."
Phyllis rolls her eyes at Zane. "That pisswater isn't going to do anything. If we can get some Borenbog, spittle, though…"
Garrett‘ slowly turns to look at Phyllis and his grin widens into an open mouthed smile.
Garrett: "-Would it be our luck- if he was trapped on this side."
Zane laughs. "Sure, Ursinho, lets just pop back over and ask the Borenbog to drool into a cup for us…"
Zane swings into a saddle. "Trust me."
Phyllis: "That’s finding a needle in a haystack, though."
Garrett: "Mmm, he'd stick to swamps, and such…"
Garrett: "But let's also see about these bison hides. Combine the plans for a strangely-alluring treat!"
Gerald: "If… you say so."
Aleith|DM: While Zane heads back to town, Garrett, Gerald, and Phyllis are easily able to cull some bison from edges of the Father of Thunder's massive herds following him. [Moderate DC Nature/Stealth checks are pretty easy for you…]
Aleith|DM: The knights will need a few days to prepare the hides and enchant them, however.
Aleith|DM: The herds surround him for roughly a quarter-mile in every direction, and the Father of Thunder himself stands fifty feet tall at the shoulder, with horns jutting and curling and curving out of his back and head and shoulders in myriad odd angles. Lightning falls constantly around him, but doesn't harm any of the herd animals.
Phyllis fiddles with some of her magical items and the powers attuned to them.
Ernst: "Our job description has gotten a bit ridiculous as of late."
Ernst shakes his head as he sizes up the Titan.
Garrett: "A problem this size is best dealt with unconventionally."
Garrett: "As it was for the Ash Wolf, even moreso here."
Zane spends the time mixing possibly the largest batch of margaritas ever. And storing the barrels in the Absurdist Web.
Phyllis sizes up the Father of Thunder, as well. … he's probably not fitting in Mordenkainen's Mansion.
Phyllis: "Zane, do you think you have … enough?"
Zane: "Not for snobby dwarves that impugn the craftsmanship of my ancestors without even trying it."
Zane is obviously trying not to laugh.
Phyllis: "I heard the recipe."
Zane looks at her.
[OOC] Phyllis: only if zane recited it, i guess
Garrett‘ consults with the knights, trades stories. Did you know he’s king, now?
Zane: "You know, somebody told me about a really nice painting once."
Zane leaves it at that.
Ernst: "So how exactly are we approaching this?"
Garrett: "Suit up, haul ass to a projected path he's gonna take, unload all the alcohol, dance around it probably, and the knights will keep the herd at bay while the Father of Thunder comes over to investigate us."
Garrett: "Hopefully!"
Garrett: "If you need a drink beforehand to steel yourself- … well just be careful, we might still have a scrap of sorts on our hands. But we'll see if we can't get him back to sleep some other way."
Gerald‘ shakes his head.
Zane does in fact have a drink beforehand, just to make sure it is good enough.
Zane: "it’ll have to do."
Chandrasekhar isn't going to pass up the opportunity to try this magnificent and ancient beverage.
Aleith|DM: Alright, it takes a few days for Zane and the knights to get everything ready, but you head out to the Father of Thunder disguised as somewhat-lumpy bisons, riding on mounts provided by the Great Hunt under bison skins.
Phyllis sighs. After some hesitation, she extends a [Mage Hand] tp take one.
Zane is always willing to share with his friends.
Aleith|DM: The massive herds aren't hard to find.
Gerald: "(This is so high on the list of dumbest things we've ever done…)"
Zane: "(Yeah, but it'll make for a good story.)"
Garrett: "(This is how new holidays are made.)"
Chandrasekhar: "(Garrett's the king now, he's not fooling with that. Just you wait.)"
Aleith|DM: So, how are you setting this up?
Garrett: "(Who's got some light spells. Prestigitation. But on a bigger scale.)"
Phyllis: "(… since the sun's gone? No one.)"
Zane: (man, part of me really wants to just stealth up, pop out in front of him and be like 'hey big guy. Wanna drink?')
Gerald: "(Uh… Rocket work?)"
Garrett: "(Rocket works!)"
Phyllis: "(Why the light show, though?)"
Garrett: "(Get his attention without getting trampled, first.)"
Phyllis: "(I can stop time to help out with the liquor transport.)"
Garrett: "(That'll help, yeah.)"
Chandrasekhar: "(I just want to take a moment and reflect on that sentence, Phyllis.)" He pauses. "(Okay.)"
Zane grins.
Phyllis: "(That and I can probably just … he'll probably just ignore me anyhow.)"
Garrett: "(Alright, fire up, not at 'im, and I'll start us off.)"
Gerald‘ nods, attaching a rocket, adjusting the fuel levels somewhat, the fires it straight up into the air like it’s a firework.
Phyllis heads in while he's distracted and begins unloading kegs of beer and margaritas around. [Time Stop] probably gives her a head start..
Aleith|DM: The Father of Thunder startles, a couple of lightning bolts zapping nearby the rocket.
Garrett‘ spreads his arms wide, still in bison regalia, crown atop it, and walks toward the massive fey from their position. He shouts:
Aleith|DM: And one of the lightning bolts strikes you as you begin talking, Garrett. [Stormy Presence]
Aleith|DM rolled d20+34 and got 10 ( Total: 44 ) for vs Ref
Aleith|DM rolled 3d6+20 and got 1, 5, 1 ( Total: 27.0 )
Aleith|DM: For 27 lightning damage.
[OOC] Aleith|DM: Yes, that was an immediate interrupt as you started talking
Garrett` weathers the blow!
Father of Thunder: "Just let me have my fun!"
Aleith|DM: The sound of it booms across the heartlands.
Garrett` continues to shout: "AH, BUT THAT IS WHY WE ARE HERE!"
Aleith|DM: The Father of Thunder slows down a bit.
Phyllis waves from below, having unloaded some number of barrels already.
Father of Thunder: "Here to bring tribute? I ACCEPT!"
Gerald` rubs at his face.
Aleith|DM: He stomps his way over to the pile of kegs.
Chandrasekhar pats Gerald on the shoulder.
Phyllis also commands the barrels to do her bidding. Because she can do that. [Pathos of the Inanimate]
Aleith|DM: He grabs several of them in his mouth, crunching them up. "Hmmm. Fruity! It's been a long time since I had this one!"
Gerald: "(…Guess we're not getting those barrels back.)"
Aleith|DM: He spends several minutes demolishing the tribute.
Zane: "I thought you might like those."
Father of Thunder: "Very nice, Monarch of Risur! Your tribute is accepted. Bring me some more mares next!" He starts moving off at a bit of a drunken clip.
Phyllis glares daggers at Garrett. No.
Garrett: "(There's no way I'm waiting that long, no.)"
Garrett: "KNIGHTS- NOW!"
Garrett: "CONSTABLES!" He draws his daggers!
Phyllis: "What will it take for you to truly be sated?"
Aleith|DM: He starts racing away at full speed, but-
Aleith|DM: Battle Order: | 41:Zane | 39:Ernst | 38:Garrett | 33:Father of Thunder | 26:Phyllis | 24:Chandrasekhar | 22:Gerald |
Ernst audibly groans. "Definitely the dumbest thing we've done."
Aleith|DM: Alright, so, you're in the middle of the herd, a 100 feet away from the Father of Thunder.
Gerald: "Sounds like the answer is 'everything'."
Aleith|DM: They move at a fast clip of 30 squares per round, but your steeds can keep up
Aleith|DM: As a move action, you can adjust your location in the herd by 6 squares.
Garrett: "I'm gonna catch up, mount 'im, roll him over and hogtie 'im."
Aleith|DM: If you fall off, you're going to take 10 points of damage per round, and if you (and your horse) fall prone, you'll fall behind by 30 squares.
Zane steers with his knees, pulling a vial of poison out of his belt and smearing it across the Arsenal.

Aleith|DM: The herd slows down to 15 squares a round!
Aleith|DM: Ernst!
Ernst sets up Stocke on the back of his horse before nodding. "I got this."
Gerald: "I don't like it when you say that."
Phyllis: "Do you like it when I say it?"
Gerald: "It ususally don't involve a dragon or titan appearing directly in front of me with zero warning so it's an improvement, at least."

Aleith|DM: Partway through your barrage, the titan bellows as he picks himself up off the groun, slaming his hooves. Intense wind picks up what remains of his herd, and bleating cows begin to spiral through the air

[OOC] Garrett: DEEZ NUTZ
Aleith|DM: The Father of Thunder bellows in pain, shaking the very earth, first with his voice, then cracking the ground again as he slams into the earth. [KO!]
Gerald` is kind of glad he’s already deaf for that once.
Ernst touches down on the ground before shaking his head.
Chandrasekhar: "(Owwww.)"
Aleith|DM: The tornado dies down quickly.
Aleith|DM: Lots of cattle fall to the ground.
Zane lands, sliding across the grass on his feet and one hand. "The fly may live…"
Ernst: "Let us never speak of this again."
Gerald: "…WHAT?"
Garrett‘ outstretches his arm, and moves the ground to swallow and bury the Father of Thunder.
Aleith|DM: The Father of Thunder continues grumbling near-soundlessly for several minutes.
Ernst sighs before admistering a [Cure-All Admixture - Remove deaf] and an [Infusion - Full HP now] on Gerald
Garrett` rides up alongside the Father of Thunder’s head before he gets too far, though.
Garrett: "I figure you'll be wanting to sleep off this whole experience for a number of centuries, yeah?"
Father of Thunder: "…yes, your highness." It's much quieter than before-so basically an outdoor voice and not a thunderous shout.
Aleith|DM: You can tell he's already sulking.
Garrett: "Well, don't worry. I intend on letting you rest. And even when you awaken, it's not as if there won't be cause for mirth… another tribute of liquors and tastes, aged by the years, shall be paid."
Garrett: "If," he says, letting the word linger.
Aleith|DM: The titan stares at you flatly.
Garrett: "Across the seas lies an enemy that has shook the world. We ride to defeat it. Lend us your strength, to ride as one force against the threat."
Father of Thunder: "If you don't want me sleeping this off, I'm going to need monthly offerings of alcohol."
Phyllis: "Do we have the economy to sustain that?"
Gerald: "There's probably more than a few people that could use the jobs, at least."
Garrett‘ looks at Phyllis and winks. "Sure. Of course. Not uncommon for a city to spring up around an industry."
Garrett: "Could even call a new place for the brewing something like ’Margaritaville.'"
Zane: "I'm not giving them my recipe!"
Father of Thunder: "And to sleep with that sexy dwarf there, in exchange for a mighty child for her. Plus I'll defend the heartlands from these invaders, temper my parties and avoid any farms marked with lightning bolts, and I'll use my storms and manure to bless the crops of Risur for the next year. I can also grant one of your unmatched virility."
Zane jawdrops
Phyllis: "What sexy dwarf?"
Gerald: "…Takes all kinds, I guess."
Zane collapses on the field laughing like a hyena.
Aleith|DM: The titan chuckles, shaking the earth a bit. "You."
Ernst starts to break down in a giggle fit.
Zane: "The physics alone boggle the mind!"
Zane shaking with laughter.
Chandrasekhar at least seriously considers jamming his sword into the Father of Thunder's eye, but Garrett probably wouldn't approve…
Garrett: "I object outright. The deal cannot be brokered."
Gerald‘ .oO(She is pretty handy with illusions, Zane…)
Phyllis only responds by cutting open an [Arcane Gate] and stepping through it.
Garrett: "Go to sleep."
Father of Thunder: "Fine." Grumbling, he finishes pulling the hillside over himself and goes to sleep.
Phyllis , from afar: "NOPE."
Zane: "Oh my tiny gods. I cant breathe. Ohhh wow."
Garrett` exhales, leaning forward slightly in the saddle.
Gerald: "So."
Gerald: "I think, all things considered,"
Garrett: "Now I just feel like some coffee and spicy over-easy egg."
Gerald: "That one’s firmly cemented at the top of the stupid charts."
Chandrasekhar: "I…. yes."
Zane tries to get to his feet. It takes a few minutes, and he's still laughing as he leans against his horse.
Garrett: "Let's head back to Bole, we'll need every ranch hand in the region to get all these cattle sorted."
Phyllis casts [Chain Lightning] on nothing in particular. Just to vent in disgust. Or scare the cattle into moving back towards town.
Gerald: "Right-o."
Zane: "I'm going to blame that one firmly on the margaritas. Its main spirit has been known to markedly increase libido while greatly clouding vision…"
Zane off into giggles again.
Garrett: "I still think the city is a good idea."
Phyllis: "He'll just be wasting away again in Margaritaville."
Zane: "MY recipe."
Aleith|DM: Once you get back to Bole, you get the city moving on dealing with the fallout and sorting the remaining cattle, while sorting out anything you need for your trip to Favela, a mining town near Redcap Mountain, where the most gremlin reports are coming from (and also where that agent of the Voice of Rot was working out of).
