Session 56 – The Death of Milf Money

The Gang’s Actions have Consequences

A Summertime Reunion

The Gang arrived back home, surprising the members of Sunder Arms Lodge who report the Saviours of Boullini had been missing for almost 2 years, thinking they died at the Amerea university. Juniper explained that she took point, leading the remaining members of Milf Money and restoring those who had perished, forming a group that helped deal with city problems, called “The New Milf Money”.

Bearmy was initially cautious of Gar at first before running into their arms. Petra explained that Hala and her broke Bearmy out of the circus who captured him shortly after Gar’s departure. The Circus has reinstated itself back in the scatter heights district with the “death of Gar”.  Drukkor approached Pyre who was sorting out the loot with Carl and Malvodo from their latest haul, learning Shurikan the brainwashed friend of the Cimbric was now in jail. Breadgar sat with Priscillia as they organized some business with Twain. Priscillia once again informed Breadgar to not trust Nobility Agents, noting it didn’t make sense she was alive. Ko’viel approached Juniper and Juniper said that they want to talk about it, but not ` right now as they are processing the return. Avonn approached their bird bath, presenting some of the seeds of summer, announcing Summer had returned to Boullini.

Martha with the assistance of Rai cooked up a feast for the party, and a celebratory feast happened. Juniper brought up an alcoholic concoction she called Fireball as Breadgar and Drukkor had a drinking contest investing a game called Beer Pong.  Avon animated the trees who, along with Bobo Nash, helped facilitate the rest of the party, as Gar did his best to disassociate from the two drunk dragonborns and Ko’viel was attempting to disassociate just generally. As the night closed, Drukkor and Breadgar spooned (Breadgar was little spoon) as Breadgar confided in not believing his mother was alive.

Over the next few days:

  • Gar approached Martha, giving her a sum of 10,000 Gold.
  • Breadgar received a letter from Augustus who stated that Breadgar’s death proved them to be ineligible to transfer business rights of Breadgar bakery and that Breadgar name was a copyrighted term of Breadgar’s baking Company and they would be forced to change the name. In Anger, Breadgar turned into a pterodactyl.
  • Petra approached Avon, asking if the stories about them were true, including that of the fey wild, noting that the stories persisted even after Avon faded away.
  • Teysa Karlov, leader of the Orzhov Bank and conduit of the Orzhov Ghosts, came to Sunder Arm Lodge to say hello to Gar and remind them of the business deal, including the tatoo on Gar’s back.
  • Drukkor went to visit the Cimbrics, but was stopped by a woman named Adara (Avon’s frenemy met during the Fey Wild), who made them remember everything about the Fey Wild (yes, including the meese and meese god). When Drukkor asked why, Adara simply said “You were there.” Instead of visiting the Cimbric Guild base, Drukkor went back and informed Avon.
  • Avon simply dismissed Drukkor, revealing that Adara might be playing long game and to keep the information to themselves, and not reveal to the others.
  • Avon and Drukkor awkwardly approached Juniper to ask for potions. During this convo, Juniper revealed that Nobglin (the goblin who helped turn Aristarn Fern into the bio-metal enahced wearwolf and helped with Natalthia’s transformation to a mechanical angel) and her had a functioning relationship at the moment.

At the end of the third day, they had been invited to attend the Leaders meeting for the Illiam League.

Pyramid in the Desert

The group arrived, seeing the council of leaders of Boullini

  • Justinian Fare (Chair Person, Leader of Justice)
  • Kiana Kalesbane (Leader of Magic, High Elf met at Skimberii)
  • Kapri Fillhorn (Leader of Military, Stout Halfling met early on, has T-rex animal companion
  • Braldian Ovverrin (Leader of Economics, met early on with Ruman Talhini, Dwarf)
  • Alonso Harehart (Leader of Foreign Affairs, advised Ko’viel on looking for Rai, sanctioned mission to the rests, Orc)
  • Ariel Hardy (Leader of Leisure (and secretly, Leader of Guilds), Dragonborn who wears a half mask)
  • Artisern Fern( Recently promoted leader of Spirituality, a Human werewolf met early on who used to lead the Followers of Imbris Yumen).

They first discussed what happened, but the group had very limited recollection but Drukkor lied through their teeth.

The second item was about the Pyramid of Bodies in the Aleo District with the Hedron. Various opinions were presented, with Ko’viel and Kapri Fillhorn adamant on having all of the new frontier members killed. Drukkor saw a peaceful resolution in mind, wanting to spare them and rehabilitate. Breadgar was stern on the fac they had killed his mother and they deserved earth. Eventually, a compromise arouse and it was decided the leaders of the New Frontier in the pyramid would be executed and the others would be restored and rehabilitated.

Key perspectives from the meeting were: Kapri wanting blanket execution, Kiana wanting to imprison them again, Ariel Hardy wanting them to fight in the arena for Leisure purposes, Aristern Fern wanting to keep the pyramid as a symbol of the people and Braldian who did not think it was appropriate that milf money decided.

As the meeting ended, Kapri stopped the group before going to the Aleo district to confront the nobility agents. Kapri apologized for their disagreements in years gone, citing it had been affecting them since their departure. Kapri affirmed that she knows they want what’s best for the city and knows their intentions. She also warned guards are  on high alert and the nobility agents have acted out of control and have ramped up their power. Similar to Priscillia, consistent with her mistrust in previous years, Kapri warned the group about the Nobility Agents.

Let Justice Reign

The group then followed the Political Escort to the Northern Aleo District where the pyramid of bodies were, just by the Hedron. The sight and smell this time around was too repulsive for Koviel and Breadgar initially. Justinian first beseeched the Nobility Agents, but it fell on deaf ears. Eventuially Breadgar took reign of the conversation, instructing the Nobility Agent. The nobility agent obeyed the commands swiftly, with their eye socket turning into multiple little eyes as another deep voice spoke through them, what they think was the voice of the being known as the “Infinite Gaze”. As the conversation ended Breadgar told Justinian that they would let justice reign. The leaders of sects of the new frontier were pulled from the Pyramid (including THormar, Callen, Rigor and other high ranking leaders) and shot, destroying their bodies. The rest would be sequentially removed from the pyramid, put in prison and hopefully, rehabilitated.

Kiana then met with them to take them to the Magic District to show them Brandle’s Refuge. Brandle’s Refuge was the site of of Milf Money’s death and the site of Brandle’s death, which was formerly the sight where Avon accessed the fey wild turned into a memorial site to Brandle from the Great Library of Vellin. After observing the memorial, Prospera dressed in all black outfit came to the site, scolding Milf Money for taking advantage of them including

  • Drukkor stealing classes
  • Drukkor and Bruce trick the enchantment with the name Ocean and making fake students
  • Ko’viel for declining assistance deciphering new frontier
  • Avon for killing Kel’ ( a gnome who did not like the fey wild) and their wife, forcing Kel to leave Boullini and lose a strong lead of magic.
  • Not supporting any mages in the invasion and capture of Balore’s horsemen (the group choose Kapri to capture isiant rather than, Brandle = Zatare, Prospera = Am’Rakfukula and Jessebelle = Misdreeksu.)

The ultimate decision was going with Avon’s advice and not with Prospera when she asked for you to come to her safe haven, which could have avoided deaths of those of her university. With that Prospera banned the group from the campus.

Kiana took the group afterwards to visit the “Saviors Institute for Displaced Children” which has now been relocated the magical children and renamed by Alluris (former founder of the new frontier along with Jaunt and Braxus). Mx. Alluris leads the school for the magically inclined young people. Alluris described they tried to stop Jaunt from entering but Jaunt broke through and found the groups magical essences and stored them in orbs, which the group can use to sleep with.

Braldian Ovverrin then guided the group through a toper trip to a new district being built up, propped with six statues… which turned out to be the recently believed deceased Saviors of Boullini. A portal set up in a guarded tent led the group back to Milf Money Mansion. The group had a series of task they wanted to do, but the day was over.

Session 54 – A Childhood Robbed, A Life-time of Power

The Gang Get Reckless

Previously on Milf$:

After speaking with the visage of Titania, the Gang saw the tower where Avant was located. The group came to an ornate beautiful white tower where Avant acted as the lookout. Avant questioned if the group remembered him, saying that he knows their faces but doesn’t remember them. Avant was the child stolen in Skimberi early on in the gang’s adventures, who has now become “The Warrior of Summer”.  While at the tower, a strong beam of energy burst from where the group had just come from. Avant said that was Adara’s magic, as she was a concentrated version of the Queen of Night and Magic’s power, the central ivory tower within the winter court. Avant provided a guide to the summer straight chasm to get an island named Sal Al, a floating island held up by roots. He informed telling the group that they needed the Hearthstone of Sal Al. One of which resided with a coven of named the Wives of Summer who had the valley guarded by a dragon named Reckless.

The group departed and after several long rests, came to the entrance way meeting a Goblin named BoboNash, son of Gilbert and Janie. Bobo had been trapped in the few wild for a long time, trapped there since his boat capsized in the material plane and a witch offered him sanctuary underwater, leading them to this world. Bobo has aged significantly here but the gang did not initially trust them. Bobo revealed that a good way to hide against the dragon was by using mushrooms and dirt, which Bobo guided and Drukkor painted the group as.

As they traversed to the wives of summer, the group quickly came across Reckless, The Reckless Dragon who tumbled their way down from the sky and destroy much vegetation as they descended looking for the group, twice. On the second time, Breadgar attempted to reason with the dragon. Initially repulsed by the Dragonborn’s appearance, Reckless walked with Breadgar explaining that they guarded the valley and it was not appropriate for them to be there (the rest of the group hid).

Drukkor followed closely behind. Eventually, Reckless offered to take Breadgar with them, as the Wives of Summer could “make you like me”, insinuating the Wives of Summer had turned Dragonborns into dragons. Drukkor threw a dagger, which caused Reckless to be distracted, disintegrating vegetation. Breadgar turned invisible. However, Drukkor fell on his back and now was being talked to by Reckless. Reckless also invited Drukkor to come with them but Drukkor tricked reckless saying that they would follow him.

They all regrouped towards the Wives of Summers place, a cold, dank, wet and moist place smelling of sea salt and littered with rotting fish. The group came across an old cottage, and investigated the outside, seeing two old women staring blanky in a bed and in a chair. The Hearthstone of Sal Al was in the cabinet. The group devised a plan, sending in Drukkor disguised as a girl (?) with cookies. The witch however spotted and saw through the façade, initiating combat by instantly pulling Drukkor into the house.  Bruce, Gar and Breadgar jumped into the building, Ko’viel drew the wardrobe to them and another witched presented themselves on the field. The witches combined into a terrible coven monstrosity, a witch of 3 heads with a stomach of Dragonborn babies poking out. Avon readied for Reckless who was returning from a far.

After a long battle, with one dying very quickly and Reckless recklessly tumbling into the house. After destroying all of the witches, and retrieving the Hearthstone of Sal Al, Reckless called it quits and said that the wives of summer will come back as they are ancient fey spirits but Reckless was a “one and done situation.” Reckless then proceeded to follow the group with the Hearthstone of Sal Al to the island.

When they reached the end, the gang organised how they would fly up the island using Onion, the Humming bird, polymorph and fly. The group ascended the floating island held up by roots and the reason they needed the Hearthstone of Sal Al became apparent. Reckless followed after the group but the island attacked it, piercing the dragon with roots, lugging rocks at it and subsuming it into- the Island. However, Reckless broke free.

When the gang got to the top, they came across a cold place with fresh snow. They came across a carriage that Avon investigated and Gar saw a tuff of white hair, akin to that of a polar bear, similar to the Winter Court’s “The one in the fjord”.

A mist started to descend across the party as they heard Killian of the Stage echo through the forest the story of Avon. He revealed that Avon was a result of Titania taking children during the humans colonisation of the continent, saying that Avon experienced a significant. He revealed Avon was a product of an event across Illiam, about 1400 years ago called “The Summer Kidnap” where children were stolen across various communities in Illiam. Killian reminded the group of their own experiences of losing moments of their life, but Avon was unphased.

While Killian affirmed that Avon’s child hood was robbed, Avon retorted “A Childhood robbed for a life time of power.” 

Session 53 – The Summer Court

Avon: Mummy Issues ?

Previ0usly on Milf$:

The gang travelled with Adara into the Temple Adjacent to Autumn, There the group bid fare well to the 3 Satyrs and Felice, travelling towards the Corridor of Autumn. The description of the functioning of the portal likened it to a worm hole. Adara provided the group Onion with new leafy wings, a bag of seeds to control a giant hummingbird and a flute to control a dragon fly.

When they entered the portal, there was a straight line with very large autumn spruce trees lining the way with Rabbits frolicking in the in between. Adara led the way and the group heard wind rustle before seeing two sphinxes block their way, who Adara called “The Autumn and Spring Bastards”. The sphinx’s denied entranced to the group. Adara said before seeing the group she had only recently defeated them, and that time although moving strangely in the fey wild, moves even stranger in the Corridor of Autumn. As Gar got banished to a wintery wonderland, the group fought the bastards and came out victorious, although many suffered the effects of only knowing a specific language.

Upon their defeat, the corridor began to die with Adara hastening Bruce and Ko’viel to get to the other end.

When Ko’viel and Bruce dashed through, they met an owl bear reading a book who was very curios and identified themselves as “The One Inbetween”. The Owlbear guided the gang out of the temple as Adara became increasingly worried, stating they weren’t welcomed here. Avon mentioned they would put in a good word for her Titania. Adara’s fears came to fruition as outside of the temple the group met a squad of Warrior like people named “The Green Knights” who whipped out an ethereal chain and launched it at Adara, blinking her out of existence. The Green Knight chief brought forward a glass swirling with water which took the shape of someone named The Green Prince, who instructed the group to follow the knights.

The group obeyed as the owlbear blended into an emerging fey crowd of pixies, satyrs and all other wonderful fey creatures in the summer forest surrounding and observing. As they walked along, the fey creatures affectionately gave them names which they heard. The group were referred to as “The Summer Orphans”, Avon was principally called “The Summer Orphan” and the group were provided the names of:

  • Gar = “The Sun Bear”
  • Bruce  = “The Fist of Sunshine”
  • Drukkor = “The Daylight Shroud”
  • Ko’viel = “The Glistening Wrath”
  • Breadgar = “The Song of Dawn”

The group came towards  a gargantuan white tree on the top of a hill blinded by sunshine through the leaves. The tree twisted around, revealing itself to be Princess Titania speaking to the party, offering an apple that cleansed their ability to speak only one language. When Titania was queried about Adara, she said that she needed to be contained as she had defied the summer court. The group did not pursue this line of questioning and Avon seemed complacent she had been taken away.

Titania provided Avon with a bag to ensure that “Summer lasts forever” with seeds for Avon to provide to their little birds and children. Titania revealed that Mab (The queen of air and darkness) did not understand her plans, and that Titania was preparing for something even greater to come. She revealed there were Far Beings from the Blind Eternities that the summer court was garrisoning against, that could not only destroy the fey wild but all realms. Titania revealed that one member (Gar) had already seen this creature (when they touched the Hedron in the sleepless Jungle).

Titania told the group the way home was beyond the Summer Straight Chasm to an island/mountain where they could teleport through (reliably). Titania told them that Avant would provide directions. Avant was the Forest Gnome Child from Skimberii (see skimberi sessions) that was taken into the Fey Wild which the group inadvertently helped.

Coming outside behind a tree was Tommen, a child taken early on from Boullini from the early sessions who had been transformed into an almost half-elf person (which looks cosmetically changed), now a teenager with glittering armour. Tommen seemed cationic in their answers in servitude.

The group now head off towards Avant who will provide a guide through the summer straight chasm to an island where to get back to the material plane.
