We did it with two players (lvl 8 bard and lvl 10 bard/fighter), and did not make it past the second spawn. The number of enemies with spells, combined with dispel, made it impossible to do. Adelaide was to near death in about 30 seconds.

RE: Kobold Stronghold - Haunted Halls
Three mangled bodied laid to rest in Eveningstar
As the sun rises, two weathered adventurers, one in blue, the other Red, enter Eveningstar with the remains of three mangled corpses. One a scout, the other a Crimson Scale, and the last a Purple Dragon. Rumors indicate that the three were found attacking travellers on the lands of Lord Darendaal, on the High Road towards Eveningstar. The woman in blue, placed the bodies at the feet of Lord Belon, placed a pouch of gold for his troubles, and departed without much else.
[Closed]Allow IG Learned languages despite no free slot
Quite simple. I had no idea you needed a free language slot to learn a language IG. So I spent a good deal of time IG, reaching the 200 points needed, only to be told “no free language slot”. Feels silly to be able to do all the leg work IG without the pay off. Could we at least make the rule visible to all? Because I had no idea it existed, and now I am stuck with Elven instead of netherese :(
RE: Oozes In Fungus Infested Cave Paralyze All The Time?
I dont think it needs to. But it is good to have easier and harder quests to choose from.
RE: File: The Elven Fellowship
I have kept a secret dialog with the elf, for fear of the others screwing it up, as this entire debacle seems more driven by rage and emotion, not sound mind.
He will allow me to bring him in. I have settled on a fine of 5.000 Gold pieces. The kidnapping was a crime, But driven by an attempt to earn and then betray Izereth, in order to stop her.
No other crimes occured, and the entire case against him is poorly and sloppy executed.
RE: Investigation: The Lady
That is enough! It is the duty of the Nobility to question their Royal Highnesses if they think they are being led astray. It is not a priviledge afforded a pleb.
What are you trying to accomplish, discrediting our King in such a way? Do you know better than your King? You are to obey and serve. That is your role. Swing your sword in the direction The Crown and the nobles point you, and stop trying to think for yourself. It is clearly hurting your head, and making you spew poison.
RE: Investigation: The Lady
To my fellow guardsmen,
As I can understand there is doubt regarding the entity known as The Lady, I shall put to paper what I can. This information is for the eyes of the Crownguard only. If it is passed on outside those in Teal, I shall personally see it as treachery to the Realm and willfully endangering the Kingdom, and I -will- act accordingly.
The ruins of Tethgard date back to the heigh of The Netherese. We believe it was either an outpost, or a crashed flying city. Inside the ruins, evidence came to light of some arcanists having opened a Gateway to the plane of Chaos itself. At some point, something went terribly wrong. Perhaps it was the same occurrence that made the flying cities fall, or perhaps it occurred shortly after. To this we can only speculate. But the Gateways and the seal holding it under control was breached, and chaos spread out.
The Lady was either the Queen of Tethgard, or a high ranking noble at the time. From what we uncovered, she ensured that the common folk under her charge could flee, while She used her magic, and her own soul, to strengthen the Ward, and to ensure that the force of Chaos did not manage to spill into our realm. She is a being of good intentions, who conducted the most noble of sacrifices, to protect the land and the people in her charge.
She is now bound to the place, holding up the seal. She and The Seal is the ONLY thing keeping the plane of chaos from entering ours. I found documents and stories to suggest that a year or so ago, the seal was weakened, and Slaad in vast numbers spilled into our realm.
Our King serves The Lady and is part of what keeps the Seal from breaking once more. And now I too have done the same. It is not a bargain for power. Suggesting otherwise is to insult the sacrifice of those who have understood the danger of the Seal breaking, have made the necessary sacrifice to protect the realms of men It should be admired, not poisoned by deceitful tongues. It is binding yourself to the Seal, to keep the Realm safe.
Izereth uncovered the way to reach The Lady. And used that knowledge to empower herself, by weakening the Seal, and drawing upon the power of Pure Chaos. She plotted all of this, while protected by the red colors of the Cabal. Furthermore, Treth used the knowledge shared between them to reach the seal as well.
How to reach the Lady and The Seal, is documented in her story, which was passed to me, in my role as a historian and storyteller.
I used the story and knowledge to Reach the Seal, and unlike Izereth, to strengthen it. I brought two druids, hoping they too would help in doing what had to be done. They were not forced but did this willingly. Others were not willing to take on this heavy burden. I cannot hold others to the height of my burden as a noble.
I now stand guard of the Seal and of Tethgard. I have sacrificed more than any can imagine, to ensure chaos does not once more spill into the Kingdom.
I hope this shall suffice as reason enough, why the story of Izereth in its full context, shall never find its way into the hands of another. It shall never reach the members of the Precept Arcanum.
This is the last I shall speak of what was found. Keeping Tethgard protected and shrouded in secrecy is henceforth a burden placed upon the Crownguard.
Further investigation into its secrets are henceforth forbidden. If you wish to learn more regarding The Lady, you may contact me in person.
If any of this information finds its way outside our ranks, I will find you guilty of treason against the Crown. Others who have not taken on the burden itself, have sworn to protect its secrets alongside I. I -will- find out if this is distributed.
