Dragon Emperors Throne.jpg


We continue at 10:50AM on the 29th of Laurilden ( on the Apocalypse Clock) with the party standing before the Dragon Emperor in a hidden sanctuary behind the giant waterfall near Xen'Khel. Various iterations of the group have worked tirelessly to thwart this outsider's plans to conquer Curabel, but now the party is here at Azrael's invitation and seeks to recruit him in their fight against the DVLs. Will they be able to forge an alliance?

We shared almost all of our information with Azrael, the Dragon Emperor, after he laid out all his cards on the table.

He has 5 avenues of research to deal with the DVLs:

  1. Controlled Eruption: Heliocharnaxus
  2. Time Travel: Jardin (Imperial Inquisitor that the party as the Starcy Boyz dealt with. He impersonated Lord Thornton for a while. Lungmold piped up on the time travel bit.)
  3. Sealing/Destroying Medial Dimensions: Itherrialma
  4. Virology: Niximanthus
  5. Soul Harvesting: Azrael

We revealed the following information:

  • That we had a vision from the Matriarchs about the plans of Asmodeus & the DVLs to build a tower and destroy all life on Medeia.
  • That we have Suttung's Notes on the DVL trap based off Azrael's research. (We did NOT mention that the Silverthrone Embassy in _ is functional, nor that that is where Jax is.)
  • That we are working with Jax. (We learn that he was once an Imperial Inquisitory, like Jardin, but retired a long time ago. Sort of like Jager.)
  • That we have a vial of what we believe to be Prixithalma's blood and the scales and blood of the dragon that we met with the Dervishes when we checked out Jager's place. This cemented the deal to help us deal with One Horn.
  • That we have invited the Winter King, Summer Lord, Verdant Fellowship, Parliament of Birds, Lord Thornton, Southern Tribes, and Armada.
  • That Hdrasta is occupied by One Horn and has some sort of vault from the Matriarchs that he cannot open. This greatly interested Azrael.
  • Khelrathat mentioned that time was funny at the Winter King's place.
  • [Edit: Did I miss anything that we revealed?]

I believe the only thing we withheld is that Jax is in the embassy and that the embassy is a functional DVL trap.

Examples of Medial Dimensions are:

  • The Shadow Realm (allows shadow stepping)
  • The City of Brass
  • Winter King's realm

Various uses of Medial Dimensions would allow traveling through them similar to Shadow Stepping. These involve the first Three of the five areas of research directed by Azrael.

Khelratha was agitated and more talkative and revealing about his origins/memories/who he may actually be.

He held up the Starchy Badge he took from Rallion's gear and said "This is all that remains of the Starchy Boyz." He ended up taking off his armor and revealing scars on his arms and front of his torso, many in common and some in dwarven.

Khelratha talked like he knew Jardin and Prixithalma and many of the Starchy Boyz.

Khelratha explained that he fell from the sky and remembered hanging around some gnomes, then a big fight, then waking up someplace else, then falling from the sky, wandering in the jungle until being found by the Montoan Warriors and joining the Wardens of Medeia.

The plan of action we settle on is:

  1. Azrael and Kauri will search the archives for information on the Matriarchs. (Azrael mentioned that he didn't think they were from Medeia. But we argued they were.)
  2. We will talk with Jax and work out what he is OK for us to reveal to the Dragon Emperor.
  3. Azrael will send 6 junior members of his family, AKA dragons, to go with us to Hdrasta to deal with One Horn and try to access the vault. Hdrasta was the last stronghold of the Matriarchs and was a dragon killing funnel. Azrael lost a lot of family there. Azrael feels that this might aid Heliocharnaxus with his research into Controlled Eruption.
  4. Go with Jardin and a small force to Gharmarost to the Inquisitorial Library to retrieve information about the details of all the Medial Realms to help with Research.
