As it turned out, the soldiers hadn't just been hearing things - now having experienced the strange howls first-hand, Oz found himself agreeing that they definitely sounded... foreign. Not that it was much of a surprise, given what they were dealing with here.
"I suppose it wasn't... fine, I guess dealing with the source of those howls is a priority. It's difficult to sleep through that noise, and not being well-rested will just slow down our work.
In fact, with that in mind, if we're going to investigate, we should probably get going now. Whatever is responsible for that noise appears to only be active at night - meaning that we might be able to get the jump on it if we happen to find it during the day. Either way, it's safer than strolling through a forest at night."

Ginny, Lv0 [36] Blue Knight [Front]
16/16 HP // 12/100 [ IIIIIIIIIII]
+1 DMG | +2 HIT | +0 AC | +1 MR | +1 INIT
Longsword [1-8 Dmg] | Old Breastplate Armor [4 AC]
[Reveal] Spoiler: Character Sheet
Inventory...[ 01/10 ]
  • Healing Flask [ +5 HP ]


Spellbook...[ 02/02 ]
  • Mug [01]
    A standard attack that causes enemies to drop extra loot randomly.
  • Shatter Guard [02]
    This attack strips the target of all magical protection and causes them to take 50% more damage until their turn starts, but otherwise does not damage them.

Abilities [ 0285/0300 AP ]:
  • Image Blue Lancer [1/1] [ Active ] [ 55 AP ]
    This attack has +5 HIT, can only be used from the cover row, and targets a single enemy in the front row. This attack moves Ginny over to the front row, and deals x2 Maximized damage if it connects. Ginny gains 25 stress if the attack misses. This attack requires a major and a minor action to use.
  • Image War Banner [1/1] [ Active ] [ 30 AP ]
    Reduce stress by 10 for all other party members and maximize the damage of their next attack. This is a major action.
  • Image Blue Knight [ Passive ] [ 200 AP ]
    A Blue Knight learns attacks by defeating enemies. Ginny cannot learn spells, and has no SP. Instead, her spellbook will be filled up with abilities as Ginny's party defeats enemies, based on the enemies themselves. The attacks in a Blue Knight's spellbook have a limited number of uses before they are forgotten. The number of uses gained is random between 1 and INT. Once an ability in the spellbook has run out of uses, it is erased. Ginny can only manually clear entries from the spellbook by meditating at camp, otherwise she must expand attacks to clear entries. Ginny's learned attacks cannot be taught as spells would be to others, as they are invoked, rather than studied.
  • Image Metamagick [1/1] [ Active ] [ 30 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Whenever an ally casts an offensive spell, Ginny can consume one use of her spellbook abilities to add its effects to the spell that was cast (the efficiency of this effect is circumstantial). This ability is considered a major action.
  • Image Shining Force [ Passive ] [ 50 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can eliminate a spellbook ability to reduce the stress of a single party member by 5x[Uses], and increase the stress of all enemy party members by the same amount. This is a minor action.
  • Image Spiderwalk [ Passive ] [ 50 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can traverse vertical surfaces so long that she keeps running. If her surroundings allow it, she can use this ability to attack enemies in cover with a successful maneuver.
  • Image Reflection [ Camping ] [ 45 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can boost the number of uses for one of her spellbook abilities by [WIL].
  • Image Soul Crucible [ Camping ] [ 115 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can combine up to 2 spellbook abilities into a single ability - merging their effects and summing their uses. Ginny can't use this ability to combine a spellbook ability that is already the product of such a combination.

Attributes:
STR: +2
DEX: +0
AGI: +0
VIT: +0
INT: +2
WIL: +1
PER: +0

Ability Points: 15
Attribute Points: 0

Scripts:

"I'm going to have to agree with Oz on this... whatever it is, if it's nocturnal, we may be able to get the drop on it during daytime, if we can track it."
For certain, taking care of this creature, whatever it is, is a priority. Ginny just hoped that nothing else came crawling forth from the obelisk whilst they were searching for their mark.
Hopefully by the time they return, reinforcements would have arrived. They are on their side after all, even if they weren't working in synergy.

  • Restless [ Active - 0 uses ] [ 20 AP + 5 per use ]
    Nica has never liked standing still for too long at once.
    -> Nica may change battle positions as a free action.
    -> This allows her to change positions twice in a turn, if she wishes.

  • Kleptokinesis [ Sustained ] [ 100 AP ]
    Nica's curiosity sometimes turns to greed... sometimes against her best interests.
    -> While Kleptokinesis is active, Nica loses 1 HP per turn, and gains 5 Stress.
    -> While Kleptokinesis is active, Nica retrieves discharged magicks from the spells she casts, granting her Kinesis for each cast.
    -> Kinesis can stack, up to Nica's Spell Point total.
    -> A successful melee attack will consume Kinesis and end Kleptokinesis. The damage is increased by 1x per stack consumed.
    -> Kinesis stacks are lost if Kleptokinesis is ended manually.

  • Aristocrat's Quill [ Camping ] [ 100 AP ]
    Nica's upbringing has made her more than proficient with written documents, which she applies to spells left behind.
    -> With a quill & parchment, Nica may transcribe one of her known spells into written form while camping.
    -> She can re-learn spells that she has forgotten if she has their scrolls.


Attributes:

  • -2 Str

Nica folds her arms and considers it further.
"Assuming we can find it. But as you say, it should be fine to look. I suppose Oz was able to find the watcher some time before we saw it yesterday..."
"Well, the garrison should be watching the obelisk anyway. There shouldn't be too much harm in heading out now."

Gold: 200
Location: Forest, south of Korsgrad
Day 02
[Reveal] Spoiler: Quests
  • [!] Icon of Ruin: Discover the origin of the Obelisk in Korsgrad, learn the fate of the villagers and find the source of the fire that razed the city to the ground.
  • Restless Nights: Investigate the unnatural howls in the forests near Korsgrad.



You leave Korsgrad and head into the forest, beginning your search for the howling creature.

Exploration in open areas is done through rolls of 000-999. Since the goal of exploration in this case is to find something in particular, we will use a DC for the roll to determine success.
The Threshold parameter is the result under which you will encounter a random event of some kind.
Phases will take variable amounts of time depending on the situation, in this instance each phase is roughly 30 minutes of search.


Exploration, DC: 900, Threshold: 200, Phase: 0.5H
    Phase 1: 536
    Phase 2: 889
    Phase 3: 717
    Phase 4: 511
    Phase 5: 122

After a couple of hours of searching for tracks or any form of sign of the creature, you find yourself in a dense part of the forest, where the leaves of the many trees form a mantle over the sky and block part of the light.
You notice that further into the trees, slightly out of sight, there seems to be a warm green light emanating from some unknown source.

They set out into the forest to search for the source of the howling, hoping to track it during daytime so that they could catch the presumably nocturnal beast unaware.
Hours of search went by with little in the way of clues or signs of the creature, until they came across an eerie green glow emanating from the woods, deep in the belly of the forest.
"Do you think this could be related to the howling creature? I can't think of anything that could make such a light..."
Ginny decided to approach the glow carefully, hand on the grip of her weapon, preparing mentally for another abomination of some kind.

And finally, after a couple of hours of searching that had begun to feel like more of a handful, they come across... well, something.
But whatever that eerie glow is, it's not natural, and with memories of uncovering the watcher fresh in her mind, Nica expects something similarly unpleasant.
The three of them all stopped and watched, apprehensively. What were surely but seconds of tense anticipation had stretched out in front of Nica like days hours of their own, but at last, Ginny moved, preparing to confront it directly. This seemed to shake Nica to her senses as well, and she quickly stepped forward to extend her arm, as though to halt Ginny.
"Hold on. It's certainly the safest assumption, so I think we should do as much as we can not to go in blind..."
Having said this, she turned to Oz, recalling the steps they took in the lead up to their encounter yesterday.
"Can I ask you to... scan, or whatever you'd have me call it, like you did the Watcher, Oz?"

As it turned out, taking a stroll through the forest was... refreshing, but not particularly exciting. It didn't seem like there was anything out of the ordinary out here...
...at least until they eventually came across a strange, warm green glow. Oz couldn't think of an animal that would produce such a light during the day... although it didn't seem to match his expectations of a creature that was only active during the night, either.
"It definitely seems foreign. I have a feeling it's not what we're looking for, but we should definitely still check it out - after all, it's probably safe to assume that whatever we heard last night is not the only danger the area around Korsgrad holds.
So yeah, give me a minute."


Oz gets as close to the light as he deems necessary for his spell to properly take effect and then casts Life Sense.

Day 02
[Reveal] Spoiler: Quests
  • [!] Icon of Ruin: Discover the origin of the Obelisk in Korsgrad, learn the fate of the villagers and find the source of the fire that razed the city to the ground.
  • Restless Nights: Investigate the unnatural howls in the forests near Korsgrad.




The three stride carefully, following the source of the light deeper into the woods.
The surrounding area becomes darker and darker as they venture further into the dense growth in this area. The green light, however, becomes brighter and brighter with each step towards the source.
Mentally prepared for another fight, Nica and Ginny clutch their weapons and Oz begins to ready his Life Sense spell, hoping to identify whatever might lurk there before it senses them...

The group relaxes, however, when they step from the dense trees into a small clearing in the woods.
The soft green light is brightest here. Oz aborts his spell for now, once they realize what causes the light, and what it is they were following up to this point.

A stone pillar stands on a stout platform of marble stone. The pillar is covered with glowing green runes and stands at the center of the clearing, surrounded by the protruding bones of what appears to be a ribcage of some colossal beast. The pillar and the bones are covered in moss and growth. This air in this place feels ancient, it must have been undisturbed for decades.

INT check, DC 10:
Nica: 06 + 02 = 08 >>> Fail
Ginny: 07 + 02 = 09 >>> Fail
Oz: 06 + 05 = 11 >>> Success!

+02 Exp

The runes on the pillar seem familiar, it's an old script that was used in older forms of magic. Nica and Ginny aren't familiar enough with this script to understand what the characters mean, but thankfully, Oz knows it well enough to translate.
"Sacrifice - Death Ward"

At the base of the platform is an indentation is the shape of a right hand. The marble within the indentation is stained with a dark gray residue.

As expected, the source of the green glow wasn't what they'd been looking for... however, it was nonetheless an intriguing discovery. It wasn't just the pillar itself that stood out - the huge bones surrounding it were no less conspicuous.
"I'm not sure I want to meet whatever manner of beast these bones might once have belonged to."
The pillar itself, surprisingly, wasn't as much of a mystery - the writing on it was old, but Oz recognized it as a script used in older, less refined forms of magic, which he knew well enough to translate - after all, this wasn't his first time dealing with those.
"'Sacrifice - Death Ward'... Unfortunately, mages back in the day liked being vague. There's no mention of what needs to be sacrificed, or in what manner this Death Ward manifests. I'd advise against messing with it.
...not to mention that it might already be active."

    -> With a quill & parchment, Nica may transcribe one of her known spells into written form while camping.

Though Nica wasn't at all sure what to expect, now that they've approached this discovery, she's quite sure it's not what they're looking for. While it possesses quite an ominous aura of its own, it's quite distinct from that of the obelisk in Korsgrad. Adding to that Oz's brief explanation, it appears that it is a relic of an older age. Nica tries to recall the, as her father would put it, 'glorious history of the Rødlev Dynasty' that she was brow-beaten with in her childhood tutelage, but even if this was one of the most recently assimilated lands...
"Do you have much of an idea of how long it's been here? I can't imagine it's the work of any of our people... could it have been placed by the holders of these lands that came prior?"
Slightly at odds with her usual restlessness, Oz's translation has her wary enough that she doesn't hazard stepping any closer as she ruminates on the implications.
"Either way, I agree that we probably don't need to interfere with it."

"This script hasn't been in active use for quite a while now. Unless whoever built this missed the memo, it's probably safe to say this thing is at least a couple hundred years old."
...meaning that the dynasty probably had no idea this was here, for better or for worse.
"Either way, it's evidently not what we're looking for, and it shouldn't cause any problems if we simply let it be.
Let's continue our search before it gets dark."

Ginny, Lv0 [38] Blue Knight [Front]
16/16 HP // 12/100 [ IIIIIIIIIII]
+1 DMG | +2 HIT | +0 AC | +1 MR | +1 INIT
Longsword [1-8 Dmg] | Old Breastplate Armor [4 AC]
[Reveal] Spoiler: Character Sheet
Inventory...[ 01/10 ]
  • Healing Flask [ +5 HP ]


Spellbook...[ 02/02 ]
  • Mug [01]
    A standard attack that causes enemies to drop extra loot randomly.
  • Shatter Guard [02]
    This attack strips the target of all magical protection and causes them to take 50% more damage until their turn starts, but otherwise does not damage them.

Abilities [ 0285/0300 AP ]:
  • Image Blue Lancer [1/1] [ Active ] [ 55 AP ]
    This attack has +5 HIT, can only be used from the cover row, and targets a single enemy in the front row. This attack moves Ginny over to the front row, and deals x2 Maximized damage if it connects. Ginny gains 25 stress if the attack misses. This attack requires a major and a minor action to use.
  • Image War Banner [1/1] [ Active ] [ 30 AP ]
    Reduce stress by 10 for all other party members and maximize the damage of their next attack. This is a major action.
  • Image Blue Knight [ Passive ] [ 200 AP ]
    A Blue Knight learns attacks by defeating enemies. Ginny cannot learn spells, and has no SP. Instead, her spellbook will be filled up with abilities as Ginny's party defeats enemies, based on the enemies themselves. The attacks in a Blue Knight's spellbook have a limited number of uses before they are forgotten. The number of uses gained is random between 1 and INT. Once an ability in the spellbook has run out of uses, it is erased. Ginny can only manually clear entries from the spellbook by meditating at camp, otherwise she must expand attacks to clear entries. Ginny's learned attacks cannot be taught as spells would be to others, as they are invoked, rather than studied.
  • Image Metamagick [1/1] [ Active ] [ 30 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Whenever an ally casts an offensive spell, Ginny can consume one use of her spellbook abilities to add its effects to the spell that was cast (the efficiency of this effect is circumstantial). This ability is considered a major action.
  • Image Shining Force [ Passive ] [ 50 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can eliminate a spellbook ability to reduce the stress of a single party member by 5x[Uses], and increase the stress of all enemy party members by the same amount. This is a minor action.
  • Image Spiderwalk [ Passive ] [ 50 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can traverse vertical surfaces so long that she keeps running. If her surroundings allow it, she can use this ability to attack enemies in cover with a successful maneuver.
  • Image Reflection [ Camping ] [ 45 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can boost the number of uses for one of her spellbook abilities by [WIL].
  • Image Soul Crucible [ Camping ] [ 115 AP ] [ Not learned ]
    Ginny can combine up to 2 spellbook abilities into a single ability - merging their effects and summing their uses. Ginny can't use this ability to combine a spellbook ability that is already the product of such a combination.

Attributes:
STR: +2
DEX: +0
AGI: +0
VIT: +0
INT: +2
WIL: +1
PER: +0

Ability Points: 15
Attribute Points: 0

Scripts:
- nil.


Ginny relaxes the grip on her weapon once she realizes what they were actually following.

In the a clearing in the forest, a runed pillar. Seems like a shrine of some sort, in a spot seemingly forgotten by the world outside.
The glow they were following emanated from the script on the pillar, obviously some very old magic is at work here. Oz is quick to decipher the meaning behind the runes.
"Sacrifice - Death Ward"
What sort of function is it supposed to have? Oz implied that it may already be active and it was best not to interfere with it for now. Ginny was inclined to agree. It sounds ominous, and if this really is old magic, it could have some unforeseeable results.

Ginny recalled that the Escal house ruled this area before the empire, but her namesake didn't build shrines like this, or used the old script. This pillar must predate even the Escal Thanedom, which must mean it could be over three hundred years old.
Either that, or it was built by someone else during Escal rule, but the moss and the growth about this place tells her it was long ago either way.
"This isn't built by the Empire, I think I've even heard that working with the old script was frowned upon in the Empire. This isn't the type of thing house Escal would create either, so this pillar could be anywhere from fifty to three-hundred years old, though I have a hunch that the latter is likelier than the former."

The massive ribcage surrounding the shrine intrigued her. What sort of beast did it belong to? The bones were large enough for an adult to stand under their curve...
Ginny places one elbow firmly on one of the shorter "tusks" of rib bone and leans against it.
"Hey, if this is just the ribcage, do you think the rest of the creature's bones are buried here under the ground?"

Ginny was beginning to wonder to herself what they should do with the information regarding this place. Could it be valuable to someone? This pillar doesn't seem related to their duty in Korsgrad, but The Empire might want to know about its existence, probably so that they could study it, or maybe just destroy it.
And the massive, mossy bones protruding from the ground might be another source of interest too. She doesn't recall any known beasts of this size, so these bones could belong to a species from another time in history.

"I think you're probably right, it's best not to touch anything here since we don't know what could happen. I think I'm going to record the location of this spot, though, in case we ever need to come back here at some point."

House Escal? So they were walking amongst the lands of Ginny's predecessors... claimed by the sweeping conquest of Nica's. Though from what she remembers, this was more or less the way of their thanedom since long ago, so it was conceded amicably. Nica wonders whether Ginny resents such a thing herself... though that's a thought for another time.
This is brought to a head by Ginny mentioning the rest of the creature this enormous ribcage must belong to. Much like the Obelisk and the watcher, a notion Nica would prefer to appraise at a safe distance, but that's never been her job. Nor would she like something so typical of the aristocracy to be.
Nica responds to Ginny's intention to take a note of the place, straightening herself up as to depart.
"That's a good idea. If it is of some potential danger, better the next people to pass this way not fall prey to it for want of knowing it's even here."
"And Oz is right, I'd rather not be still searching by the time it may well be finding us instead."

Day 02
[Reveal] Spoiler: Quests
  • [!] Icon of Ruin: Discover the origin of the Obelisk in Korsgrad, learn the fate of the villagers and find the source of the fire that razed the city to the ground.
  • Restless Nights: Investigate the unnatural howls in the forests near Korsgrad.


You decide to leave the pillar for now, continuing on your search for the howling creature.

Exploration, DC: 875, Threshold: 175, Phase: 0.5H
    Phase 6: 086

You leave the clearing and continue searching. Not fifteen minutes pass and you spot someone walking along the trail in the distance, about 500 meters ahead of you. They are walking slowly and calmly, and are facing away from you, and so do not seem to have noticed your presence yet.
You can't make out the details of their appearance as their distance and the shadows cast by the trees make them hard to distinguish, you can't tell if it's a man or a woman from this far, but it's definitely an adult.
What are they doing here alone?

Spells:

  • Arc Bolt
    -> Strike a single enemy with a bolt of lightning. The bolt has Int Hit and deals 3d3+Wil damage.
    -> On attack rolls of 6 or more, the bolt will chain to a random nearby enemy dealing 2d3+Wil damage on the first chain, and 1d3+Wil any consecutive times after that.
  • Entropy Bolt
    -> Attack an enemy with a strange bolt of chaotic energy. The bolt has Wil+Dex Hit and reduces the victim's AC and Hit by Int.
    -> The victim will take 1 Dmg and 5 Stress every turn until they have taken the same amount that their AC and Hit were reduced by.

Abilities: [ 300/300 AP spent ]

  • Spell Scavenger [ Passive ] [ 200 AP ]
    Nica wanders the land, tracing the trails of the many magicks at work upon it, and claiming them.
    -> When Nica successfully casts a spell on an enemy, Nica marks them with A Trace, granting her +1 Hit and MR against them for 2 turns.
    -> Nica can make a maneuver against marked enemies to consume A Trace and gain 1 Spell Point.
    -> When an enemy casts a spell, Nica also marks them with A Trace.
    -> A Trace can stack, up to 2 times.

  • Finesse [ Passive ] [ 50 AP ]
    Nica's deft hands supplant her skill with the blade... the pokey ones, anyway.
    -> All rapier-type weapons are considered Treated when wielded by Nica.
    -> Treated weapons use Dex for +Dmg.

  • Lunge [ Active - 1 use ] [ 50 AP ]
    Nica's daring nature is unbounded by battle positions... sometimes.
    -> Nica may make a melee attack on a Covered enemy.

  • Restless [ Active - 0 uses ] [ 20 AP + 5 per use ]
    Nica has never liked standing still for too long at once.
    -> Nica may change battle positions as a free action.
    -> This allows her to change positions twice in a turn, if she wishes.

  • Kleptokinesis [ Sustained ] [ 100 AP ]
    Nica's curiosity sometimes turns to greed... sometimes against her best interests.
    -> While Kleptokinesis is active, Nica loses 1 HP per turn, and gains 5 Stress.
    -> While Kleptokinesis is active, Nica retrieves discharged magicks from the spells she casts, granting her Kinesis for each cast.
    -> Kinesis can stack, up to Nica's Spell Point total.
    -> A successful melee attack will consume Kinesis and end Kleptokinesis. The damage is increased by 1x per stack consumed.
    -> Kinesis stacks are lost if Kleptokinesis is ended manually.

  • Aristocrat's Quill [ Camping ] [ 100 AP ]
    Nica's upbringing has made her more than proficient with written documents, which she applies to spells left behind.
    -> With a quill & parchment, Nica may transcribe one of her known spells into written form while camping.
    -> She can re-learn spells that she has forgotten if she has their scrolls.


Attributes:

  • -2 Str
  • +4 Dex
  • +1 Agi
  • -1 Vit
  • +2 Int
  • +0 Wil
  • +1 Per


Well, that was quick. :P

Quieting herself as she becomes more sure of what it is she's straining her eyes to ascertain, Nica addresses the other two:
"You two see that, right? There's someone a ways down from us."
While it was rather unlikely that this was their target, Nica couldn't imagine a reason for any one person to be wandering a place like this, considering the only Empire presence in the surrounding area was them and the garrison. For that reason, knowing who they are and what they're doing could be very telling. A Korsgrad resident? A runner for the reinforcements? Surely not, but...
"I think we should approach them, but I wonder if it wouldn't be worth trying to observe them without being noticed ourselves at first."
Folding her arms and thinking, she adds:
"After all, it's so inexplicable that I don't want to rule out the possibility that they're a danger."
