Tonista Burk. Bronth.

Characteristics & Rolls: AGL 15/75%, COL 5/25%, CON 7/35%, EDU 12/60%, INT 17/85%, ISHO 10/50%, LIS 9/45%, SIZE 24, SPOT 10/50%, STR 12/60%

CP 5, HP 31, IP 10

Damage Bonus: +2D6

Armor: 1D4 points fur, 1D6 points hard leather

Attacks: 1H Greatsword 95% 2D8+db, Brawling 90%, Grappling 85%

Rage: 1 round to start and it lasts a number of rounds equal to Con. Hits with melee weapons deal twice as much damage. No dodge or parry allowed.

Tonista is protective of her farm and the workers who till the fields. She's a great cook, but can be stern when she spots laziness. She pays a fair wage, but farming is hard work, so she's often had to replace workers who have moved on to the "Big City" of Joble. She lost her husband to a band of Crugars while he was gathering wild berries for her.

Johan Tanhall. Boccord.

Characteristics & Rolls: AGL 8/40%, COL 13/65%, CON 11/55%, EDU 8/40%, INT 10/50%, ISHO 11/55%, LIS 10/50%, SIZE 15/DB: +1D6, SPOT 11/55%, STR 15/75%.

Johan's philosophy is to do as little as possible to make enough to drink, and rest, and occassionally go into Joble disguised to gamble. He often leaves his work for others, who get tired of him and leave the farm. Tonista doesn't like his attitude, but she cares for the big oaf even if she would never say it out loud. He got in trouble in the past due to fights and spent some time in jail there.

This Cleash chased the Thriddle from the Skyrealm through the Warp only to find itself swiftly decapitated in a strangely warm field (due to a really lucky critical hit). The characters harvested its capsules and burned the remains.

Recap 1: Skyrealms of Jorune Campaign "Tonista's Durlig & Hilc Farm"

 


Player Characters:

Ahte, Muadra, played by Bill.

Blogren, Muadra, played by my son Wes.

Bruce, Boccord, played by George.

Titanius Englesmith, Human, played by Kris.

NPCs:

Canth Lor Snoggis, Thiddle.

Johan Tanhall, Boccord. Drunk farmhand.

Tonista Burk, Bronth. Motherly bear/humanoid Durlig/Hilc farm owner.


The first session went well! We made characters for the first half of the session. One Boccord, two Muadras, and a Human. The guys seemed to like the more skill-based rules once we got into it. They were used to class based games. I only had to tweak a few things on the fly to my BRP D100 rules hack/hybrid.

While the characters were working on Tonista's (Bronth) Durlig/Hilc farm (outside of Joble in the Sobayid) they noticed that a bunch of Beagres had tore into the crops the night before so they were going to go after them... when a Warp (teleporting gateway) appeared, and a semi-frozen Thriddle exited it. Snow was pouring out of it from an icy Skyrealm and covering the crops. A monstrous Cleash followed after the Thriddle, and the party killed it swiftly (due to a lucky crit roll by my son). They looted the Cleash Capsules from it that had 3 effects (cold damage, light, and smoke). They burned its corpse quickly away from the fields.

They hunted and trapped the Beagres, and slaughtered them. Later they skinned them and made a lot of jerky from them with special directions from the Thriddle who was named Tonista also had a minor spat with her other worker Johan (Boccord) who tends to drink too much. 

 

After the human character intimidated the Thriddle it gave them a few Shanthic Artifacts, and later it tried to say those were thank you to the characters for saving its life. The Boccord got a Shanthic Blade with a powerful Shantha trapped inside of it, and the Muadras learned a few Dyshas from a Sarceen (teaching item carved from raw isho energy).

Tonista made a huge meal for everyone, and she gave them a lot of servings of Durlig and Hilc to take with them. She thought that her best workers were leaving for good, but they promised to return.

They plan to turn in Beagre skulls for a bounty in the nearby Thivin town of Joble. They might go back to the Skyrealm if they can reopen the Warp (both of the Muadras can), and they promised to eventually take the Thriddle to the northern city of Ardoth (his home).

We hope to play again next month in November. I can't wait. :)
