Session 4

The person is fully clothed hood up…it’s way to hot for hoods to be up. How strange. How strange. She seems to have no interest in talking to us and beelines for the town. the draeugar yells in druid and the person looks at them and keeps walking. We see a maptube on her back and a weird parcel on her him. We get close and we can see the woman’s face is covered in bandages.

We stop the woman walking. We try to figure out what is going on. She informs us that her name is tatter and she’s the apprentice of the mad mage. Whoa. She keeps walking and we follow her. When we get close to the camp shed just walks through but we are stopped. She did cast some arcane spell before getting there so that could have something to do with that but I cannot be sure.

The guards tell us that no townies are allowed here, but I think they forgot that I am not a townie, and I kind of want to see what her business is here. Fuck Clive. He won’t let me through. I’ll remember it. It’s almost like they forget I have the power to protect them.

After awhile Tatter comes back at sword point mumbling about dwarves I tell her Clive is worse over here. She tells us that she is weak over here because so we bring her back to the area we start to talking to her. I ask her about the realm and she says the talisman are only good for a year and they are rude. Weird. I ask her why she tells me it’s because they deny the gift the realm will give us. The gift of this fancy power they have over there.

We continue to talk to her, and I can feel her try to read my thoughts. I block it a few times. I can tell that she is getting a little testy with me after these. Not like it’s my fault..I mean it kind of is but still!. We talk about the witch being weak and he husband dying. I bring up the mushrooms and she hasn’t heard of this effect before so I offer to share my notes.  She is happy to accept and then keeps asking me about the talisman. I keep the information to myself. Why does she need to know?

Suddenly Tatter looks up and a large gem in beard dwarf appears and starts to speak.

“Hello all, I am your final contact before army of Khazak-Hadar Empire come for you. You are last humans left and we, like you, are tired of fighting. But your defenders do not seem to be. They are stubbron and refuse to come for yoour safety.

There are only two options left to you. Live in safety as prosperous workers in the Khazak empire or die, either here or to the monsters in the wildlands.

I urge you to convince suicidal soldiers to accept a peaceful transition of power. They work for you. Make your wishes for safety known For every night until bulk of Khazak forces arrive, we will show you how you die if peaceful resolution not reached”

And just like that, the image disappears and sparkles flutter down across the town.

That was strange. It’s time to gather supplies for the trip. I try to find medical supplies but there aren’t many in the town since the fucking military took them all. I was able to secure a bottle of Vodka, sewing kit and a bolt of cotton. However, before i can make it back to camp, loud thunder sounds and sparkles trickle down. Everyone is distracted. I make it to the medical camp and tell them I need supplies. It’s pointless to hoard all of the supplies when there’s no hope. I manage to get 4 bottles of antiseptic. I tell them there’s no real hope and if they truly want to be saved they should come with us. They hesitate. I tell them if they decide, they know what to bring me. They mention my new pet looks familiar. I just shake my head. Of course they know him. It’s Gerald, but I don’t care to explain what happened. They are a large waste of time at this point.

The next morning, that guard and another are at the wagon. I make them their talisman in exchange for several bandages. The other useless guard gave me nothing. I will remember this… Before long a large fight breaks out. I’m done making talisman to organize the wagon. I send Gerald out to deal with it. He yells loudly and pushes the people away…they disperse but the group starts to grow weary of my pet. The dirt dwarf confronts me in the wagon. I confirm it’s Gerald and explain how he wanted to be with me forever…with the neurotoxin and the fact he’s a human would prevent that we entered into an agreement of burning passion. Still skeptical he moves on. No one will take my love away.

I was informed the previous night that the talisman prevent the gifts only the strongest and hold. Being strong myself and told I would be fine, I agree to get rid of it, but only if it can be dispelled. This is a family heirloom after all. I was also told the family would only get help if they needed it if they didn’t have them either. I shrug. It is easy to convince them to go with it as well. It’s not much longer until we meet up with Tatter and walk through. It’s just like it was last time. I shrug off the feeling. But the Ackles, they panic. I try to calm them down. Tell them it will all be alright. They kind of nod.

I start to grow used to everything happening here. Everything seems less strange. The cries of loved one that used to be birds to the weird shadows in the corner of my vision. It seemed…normal now.

Tatter starts to walk with us for awhile and then points ahead of us. “Hewerhall is that way. I think you (the Ackles) will like it. The others, not so much. I think you will find it boring” she tells us. I have to agree. I’m here for power. I’m here to become strong…but I have to care about Gelfi. I know she’s fond of these humans and I don’t want to upset her more than I have to with bad news ect. I point the wagon into the right direction and we go off. The Ackles are still a little shaken, and it’s obvious. I try to comfort them the best I can but it seels futile. But don’t worry! The draeugar has a plan though! Don’t worry!

He creates a Mud snowman about 2 feet fall two peach pits fr eyes and a big open toothless mouth. He climbs up the wagon slowly, sloshing around as he spider man climbs and terrifies the children. The lil boy is just screaming bloody murder, the daughter is like ok… the parents are so confused. He then gets up to the top and dances and then they are like “oh ok yay! ” and enjoy the lilttle dance. They touch him and they realize this is mud and they get super excited and they are playing in mud. the lil dude is all for it and plays with the kids for 3 hours. The kind of dwarf tells them he has to go to sleep and then he turns into a puddle mud under the wagon.

It soon reaches night and we set up the camp. They sky is a lot different here than the other place. The sky had a aurora piercing though it, but not illuminating anything. It was almost relaxing but strange…The humans were a little scared. They didn’t want to camp outside, and wanted to sleep in the wagon. I inform them only two people can be in there at once, They ask if the kids can stay. Ugh! I allow the children to sleep in the wagon as long as they don’t touch anything, the parents under it as they wanted. Gelfi and Gerald make a fire. He removes his gauntlet to light the tinder.  I lean against the wheel while Gerald stands next to me, forever vigilant. I start my medication and I feel a lucid dream coming on. One that I don’t control. I shrug it and allow it to happen. I see my first patient. The first one that died. The first one that got me interested in how the living work.

The spirit tells me what would have happened if I didn’t do this. Gerald and Gelfi were making out as the rest of the group were laughing and having a good time. Weird. Suddenly the group points and laughs and I look over. Gerald and Gelfi stopped making out and start to play with organs. Not just any organs…they’re mine. I reach out to try to get them to stop but I wake from me meditation. I feel my stomach and shrug it off. Strange dream. I snuggle close to my armored pet and tell him if he ever leaves me I will end him. He nods and pressed his helmet covered face against my forehead in a cold, metallic kiss.

Neverwinter: The D&D MMO

I enjoy Dungeons and Dragons. Its  got to be my favorite table top game of all time. Becoming one with your character, going on amazing adventures and making new friends and enemies  along the way! I tended to befriend too many people..and..creatures in the last game we fully played. Heh. But I’ll get into that later =D

 

Neverwinter helps bring the idea of D&D to those who don’t have an imagination. An evil witch has come to overtake the world with her army of the dead. First, this sounds like Wrath of the Lich King expansion for World of Warcraft. She kind of looks like him too. So I’m already a little like “Yay..another let’s kill the evil lich before zombies eat my brains”

 

The controls..Its  the standard WASD movement keys with space to jump. You have 2 attacks that are linked to your mouse,  and then you have some keyboard attacks. One attack is q  then it goes 1 and 3. You have an F attack then its potions 4-6. You’re pretty much all over the keyboard, so I’m happy that I have a g13. Whoo.

 

For a free to play game now, the graphic are rather nice. They’re not as advanced and other games, but they create a beautiful atmosphere and really bring the NPC’s, Creatures and landscapes alive. I would have liked to see a free ranging camera added to the game and a tab targeting system, but mousing over your target works too. I found myself missing a lot  and hitting another group of mobs a few times. Whee..that was fun.

 

The Customization you can do with your characters are rather nice as well. Its almost like games like the Elder Scrolls. I really enjoyed that! You you choose presets if you want to get out and kill things quickly or you can take your time and make the character the way you want.  You have 6 races and 6 classes. They are working on another class, but its not been introduced yet. For those who like to complete every race and every class, you only have 2 slots available.  You can buy more slots or you can just make another account since they’re free to make.

 

Questing is a lot of fun, you have a sparkly trail that guides you to your objectives and on items that you need to grab. If you don’t want to quest, you can take jobs which are player created or you have qued up for skirmishes. There really isn’t an end of what you can do as Jobs scales with your level.  Playing with others is nice too as some loot is unique to yourself while there is also a rolling system. I find the rolling kind of difficult on my Wizard because the button you use also teleports me so When I’m rolling on loot Poof! I’m gone!  It wouldn’t be so bad except for the aggro range on some mobs are kind of large.

Social aspects? There are many different “servers” in the game and when you’re in a party with people you get put on the different servers often, but thankfully you can move servers.

 

Leveling up can be a little slow, and when you do you can level up your spells and become powerful. You can also get new spells with your points. So that’s kind of like DnD. But these spells are already set up for you to choose what you want.

 

All in all this game is fun, but it has its ups and downs.  I didn’t actually feel like I was playing DnD, it felt like an actual MMO where I worked with other people to do something or I worked on my own.

I give this awesome game 7/10 Lily points. You should check it out if you enjoy DnD =3 I enjoyed playing this game a lot with my friends =D
