Recap 7: Skyrealms of Jorune RPG Campaign "Slaughter Isho"



*Ahte, Muadra Caji (played by Bill).
*Blogren, Muadra Caji (played by my son Wes).
*Bruus, Boccord Soldier (played by George).
*Titanius Englesmith, Human Explorer (played by Kris).

*Addacar (Corastin NPC).


I tend to get burnout as a GM, so I told the guys that I would plan to run this campaign up to about 20ish sessions and then let someone else run a game. We have a bunch of sessions still until that point though.

The group watched as a creature comprised of mostly pure Isho energy formed on the mysterious Shanthic Leyline. As per Blogren's vision the Shanthas at both ends of the Leyline had summoned it to fight them. Eventually it materialized enough for weapons to harm it and the battle began. Titanius got to use his new Field-Ram Earth-Tec on it to good effect. The Isho Creature hurt many of the characters with odd seemingly deadly spiritual abilities.

The Slaughter Isho Lamorri power that the group just got access to (from past exposure to that Lamorri skull and tampering with Lamorri tech) was used twice and by doing so Blogren got another vision of not only the creature dying, but ALL of the Shanthas, the many birds resting on the biers in the cemetery, and all surrounding life died too. The Leyline full of Isho and Life... became a demarcation of Death. Twenty five feet to either side of the line all through the lands from the Southern Jungle to the Northern Forest were instantly slain. Bugs were seen flying over the line... and instantly dying. Later a bird likewise died instantly above the line. The land was horrendously scarred by their actions. As a GM I love to see unexpected things like that happen. The setting has been altered in a MAJOR way that I could not have foreseen.  > : )

The group eventually noticed a weird dark smudge on the green moon of Launtra... They put two and two together to realize that the ascending Lamorri Death Tech Rods must have returned to some settlement there to wreak mass destruction. It made them wonder who or what resided there, perhaps Shantha using ancient Lamorri secrets to fight humanity? Perhaps other alien species? A mystery, but whoever resided there, they seem to have been behind the attack on the nearby town of Dharmery with their floating cloud ship/structure/skyrealm thing.

The characters walked on the sides of the Death Line and eventually decided to head to another nearby town (Advan) that they suspected might also be under attack. They found it and it was being attacked by a contingent of Crugar who were hurling Lightning Blasts at a protective Isho Wall (cast by the Dharsage's Muadra Caji). They group attacked the Crugars who either seemed to be in league with the ones from the mood settlement, or just taking advantage of the now war torn kingdom. Addacar collected the Crugar pelts after they had slaughtered them quickly. 

The protective Isho Wall came down, and they met with some soldiers and... the Dharsage of Ardoth. It seems he had traveled there to inspect the goings on in the South and to relax away from the hustle and bustle of city life. As they were speaking a 2nd group of Crugars could be seen charging the town riding on Dharme lizards... The Dharsage revealed the only Warp / Gateway that led to the city of Ardoth and that all of them should travel through it and destroy it from the other side. This was accomplished right after Ahte's Black Lamorri Box of Death wiped out some of the charging horde. Unknown to the characters... destroying the Warp with Lamorri Energy also had some interesting effects. hehe.

The group was glad to be in the capital city of Ardoth where the Dharsage gave them extra marks on their Challisks for their help. Titanius got a special write stating that he could retain his Earth-Tec devices in the confines of Ardoth (instead of turning them in as usual). 

Then terrible things happened. The Lamorri energy residing in the characters seemed to desperately want to assassinate the Dharsage. It billowed out of the characters and attacked and slayed the Dharsage's Muadra Caji. The Dharsage fled to safety... or at least so he thought. The dead Caji crumbled into ashes, then formed into a shadowy figure. It pointed at the Dharsage's castle and several towers fell as the world quaked. The group was told that they would be given room and board far away from the Dharsage to keep him safe and to find out what had happened.



  1. Hey, Tim ....Titanius Englesmith here....good write up....just wanted to point out a few things...

    I walked as close to the LEFT of the deadzone..and gee...ya coulda mentioned how I closed the Warp Gate like Kirk in the Doomsday Machine.

    But thanks for reminding me of that green smudge on the moonπŸ˜„πŸ˜„

    "And Jet....I thought that the Major was a lady....suffergete(sp)"

    1. I'll have to rewatch those original episodes again. Hehe.

    2. I'm not sure what I'm going to watch tonight....Maybe "End of Time" or "Day of the Doctor"

      Hey...have you heard might help in planning your campaign.......and Ukraine's!πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‡πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸŽΆπŸŽΆ

  2. Oh...and just one more thing....

    I should have used more charges on my Field Ram...I won't make that mistake again

  3. Titanius Engelsmith here again...
    Did you get the email I sent you?...yeah...I've been channeling the NFL since before the Super Bowl...

    I also wanted to add at this point in the Space Time Continuum, that you left out my above average kill count when we encountered the Crugars. When I saw them beseiging the town, I didn't hesitate to open fire.

    And that while session is indelible in my hippocampus, some spooky stuff went on that day.

  4. Hehe. You'll have to add more to your notes. My brain is terrible at remembering things. :)
