Chapter XXII: Something's Ranke in the City.
It is two months before the battle of Stormguard. Titus and Balthasar said their goodbyes to their companions and waited for the Blue Star Adept, Jhalent, to create the portal to Ranke.

She was suspicious of their intent, but recognized a need for action. How does one betray their oath out of their own loyalties?

Travel via the portal was something the party had never encountered before. The feeling of being anchored in two places at the same time was quite unsettling. Jhaelent said they'd get used to it. Titus wasn't so confident.

Things were as bad as predicted; the Blue Star was holding a neutral position, the church had sanctioned new Lightbringers without the Emperor's authority, Kafen was being held unofficially, and the Dawn-Celebrant, Sol, had recreated the ritual performed at the Sunspire.

The party was adrift in a sea of conspiracy. The Dawn-Celebrant was actively working against the Emperor in the war-effort. His research on the ritual had given the answers they searched for. The original ritual was successful in banishing, but not destroying, the Yuan-ti. However, if they infused the ritual with primal energies, they could bind and destroy the pact the Yuan-ti made to Zehir. Titus was left with a grim decision: Sacrifice Garr to end the war, or face the onslaught.

Meanwhile, Balthasar and Alphonse were buried in historical texts, looking for a link that tied the Raven Queen to the wars between the Rankans and Beysibians. An ominous roof-top meeting with what appeared to be an ally may provide answers.

One day passed and the party is no closer to freeing Kafen or gaining military support against the Beysib. If they don't get aid to Stormguard by the time Garr arrives, this war could end very badly...

The Floating Palace
On the way to Germany
Currently the Royal Navy airship, Aeronautilus, is on its way to Germany with the party and a small crew. Since the party seem to be placing themselves in harm's way, it has been decided that they will no longer be permitted to travel upon commercial passenger aircraft, in order to minimize the risk to Her Majesty's loyal subjects.

What waits in Germany is unknown, although if it follows on from the previous incident involving a factory town full of apparently mindless workers and a fire elemental, it should at least be dramatic.

Germany is not part of Her Majesty's Empire, although relationships are friendly between the Empire and the German government, currently anyway.

The Inquisitorial Years
The Industrialist Revolution
The Industrialist Empire has fallen. The barons are cowering in Inquisitorial lands or dead. All hail new Kimsato! Decisions to make- who leads the new Republic? Orrin? How will you deal with Sanguine and the ENRAGED East Inquisitorial Empire who were denied their lands on the border? How will you increase your character's power with your master dead?

RE: Upcoming Session Planning (4/17/09)

Anybody have any ideas for what to do next?

I was scouting out the iron works while people were interogating the prisoner. Since the thieves' guild attacked us, we may want to handle them first. My only issue is how are we returning the items (the china, etc) that were stolen the previous evening.


Ha. The thief is the only one worried about returning the stolen goods. I love you guys.
