Pathfinder LOST

Brother to Brother

Centric: Angelina

There was the banquet after the first day of the tournament. Serbitar was commended for his bravery in combat and fearlessness. That knight they all joined the Round Table in ceremonial initiation of PC’s to knighthood.

The tournament was an amazing battle. In short Group 3 lost to Group 4, but both Angelina and Patrick were noted for their battle prowess. Angelina was even the combatant that felled most opponents and the second woman in the history of Camelot to make it through the first round of a Tournament. Patrick managed to make a fighting move called the “Pelleas” where you pin a man down, hogtie him with his own belt and then turn his helmet to make him blind. Pelleas drew himself out of the competition.

Flashback:
An old friend of Alexander Castle visits Seawell. He is very keen on seeing Angelina and presents her with a gift, an amulet with a sword embedded, obviously a herald of some sort. He notes she looks just like her mother, smiling knowingly. Alexander asks with the journey was hard, but the man replied it was worth it. He stays for a few days than departs. He drops to Angelina, that he looks forward seeing her later.

A few weeks later, while playing, the string on the amulet on brakes. Angelina rushes with it to the Elianders but Beorn is out. His wife takes the amulet and tells her that Beorn will fix it as soon as he gets back. Rushing out she bumps into a merchant wearing a yellow garb.

Reunion

Centric: Serbitar

Angelina decides to partake in the upcoming tournament and because she lacks experience in the formalities she is granted a squire to assist her. Patrick takes a stroll around the castle and discovers a forbidden room he must see.

Meanwhile Raven has just finished work at one of the leatherworking shops in town and is enjoying a nice bath at a bathhouse. Serbitar enters the same bathhouse and bubbles joins the party (in house joke). A page arrives to summon them both to the castle. Upon arrival they are shown to their rooms, 7 rooms having been set aside the 2 extra being for Alain and Leon. Raven refuses the room, wanted rather to stay with the common people and avoid the nobles. He is told that there he is invited to breakfast tomorrow where Merlin, Garland Tarn to the heroes, will present them with the items they lost in The Savage Lands. But before he leaves Athena tells him and Serbitar what transpired at the end of The Once and future.

Before breakfast Angelina confronts Galahad in private about his powers. She cuts the palm of her hand and as she is about to heal it herself Galahad does it for her. She cuts her other palm and does the same. She discovers that Galahad, just as she thought, is a Paladin as well.

Everyone sits down at the breakfast table and a prayer is said. Galahad stares intently at Raven, not a friendly inch of an expression to be found on his face. Finally Garland Tarn arrives, being called Merlin by everyone, and he and Serbitar are reunited. After breakfast is over Raven walks up to Galahad, Raven liking Galahad’s directness and thus wanting to sort this animosity out quickly. Upon reaching Galahad he asks him if he’d like to go somewhere private and talk this out. Galahad replies that he doesn’t want to go anywhere with a liar, thief and killer such as Raven. And that he even thinks he can see some kinslayer in Raven’s past. This sets Raven off and he punches Galahad right there in the face. Men storm between them one of them being Angelina and she asks what Raven did. Raven replies: “Oh yeah… take his side!” and storms away. Angelina asks Galahad what transpired and he says that he deserved it. She tries to go after Raven, but the stealthy rogue had disappeared.

Angelina calls Galahad an asshole and goes out for a run and some exercising to clear her mind and the rest of them wait eagerly for a meeting with Garland Tarn that Serbitar makes sure that not even Raven misses. When they get there Garland gives the heroes all their items back. Finally the heroes thought, finally we get some answers. Garland says that he opened the portal that took them to this place. He says that the undead attack in Seawell was all a part of someone’s plan to get them here. He also says that he believes Pinbacker to be one of the good guys, even after hearing what he did in Hazuth Kleg, Garland even justified some of it. He says that one of each of our parents is from this place. He finds it weird that we ended up in Oriab since he wanted us to end up with him in Camelot. When Serbitar tells him that he was lead out of his house as a young boy by a talking cat that told him that his father was coming in his room to kill him, Garland froze. He said he didn’t have any time to talk and that he must leave immediately and that he would answer all our remaining questions once he got back. Before he left he told Angelina that her family was to be found here in Camelot.

Serbitar’s foundation was shaken. Unsure what to think of his father and feeling badgered by Raven’s questions about it, Serbitar could not discuss it and needed some time alone. Angelina went to see her relative and Patrick decided to enroll himself in the tournament. While Athena decided to get some work in a Blacksmith.

While the others spent the next three days in the court Raven could not face the place where he had been called a kinslayer. He instead sought a foothold that he could relate to and purchased the Leatherworking shop where he had worked his first day in Camelot. He renamed it Raven’s Leather Emporium and preceded to get it ready for the big upcoming tournament. On the eve before the 1st day of the tournament he asked Galahad to meet him in the shadows of an ally at nighttime. Surprisingly he agreed. Raven told him that if he could see all the things Raven had done he could also see that he repented those actions and that he was doing all in his power to atone for them. To have good men like Galahad treat him like he did only made him likelier to revert to the man he used to be instead of the man he was now. In Raven’s opinion men like Galahad should strive to see the good in him and help him cultivate it. Raven admitted that he needed help in his redemption and how Galahad treated him wasn’t it. So he asked him to be his friend while he still bore the flag of atonement and help him cultivate his new values and beliefs.

Athena was going to enter the tournament but she decided rather to take Raven’s job offer as cute eye candy to sell items during the day and blacksmith for the store during the evenings. The first day of the tournament came and sadly Serbitar’s team lost. Although it was highly noted how brave Serbitar was to firstly go in there unmounted and secondly charge at the biggest man there. King Arthur dispatches Tristram on an unannounced errant.

The Once and Future

Centric: None

On the other side of the lake is a mounted man looking exactly like Hawk but waring different armor and with different mannerisms. After figuring out that this was indeed not Raven’s brother, the stranger points them to the nearest town for refuge and rest. He promises them haven from the neighboring Orcs and hastily makes his way.

The heroes soon after make the difficult trek to the nearest village, it being hard to travel while injured. They are well taken care of in town but are pointed to another town in order to find someone with authority in this land.

Upon arriving in that town they meet up with Bors de Ganis, seemingly legendary for drinking and lechery, and his seeming opposite Gawain. At first the heroes are wary of Bors because of his similarity with Sweet, but soon discover that this is a completely different man. During conversations with the 2 men, the heroes learn that to this land Malagant is a good person and what’s weirder is that he’s their ally in the war against the undeads. This land takes care of the Western war front against the undead while Malagant takes care of the Eastern one. The night has an even bigger twist ending with Athena sleeping with Patrick.

The morning after the group head out to Camelot with the 2 knights, Gawain especially taken with their heroics and Bors delighted by their mannerisms. They’re taking them to Camelot to meet King Arthur They stop in a few towns away, enough time for Athena’s and Patrick’s coitus to turn into a “thing” or at least regular occurrence.

When they arrive in Camelot they are surprised to see that nobles wait in line behind peasants and even though they are quite dirty and smelly, they are not treated any differently for it. Gawain asks the heroes to please buy nicer clothes before they are introduced to the king. Angelina, Patrick and Athena buy new traveling clothes and decide go to the kings audience waring that. While Raven/Phoenix says he has no interest of partaking in that ceremony (his dislike of nobles being a factor here) and Serbitar still hasn’t entered the city.

Angelina, Patrick and Athena go meet the king and are surprised when no one in the room is dressed more regally than they are. There is no throne in this “throne” room but instead a round table. There are more than a dozen other people in the room but still the heroes can’t tell which of them is the king since they all look like they are of similar stature. A war meeting commences and the heroes are allowed to sit in on it. They discuss matters such as Pinbacker asking for financial aid to take care of the eastern front. They discuss their western front and how that is going. Other matters are discussed but what is amazing is that despite the fact that there is a king among them, they all discuss it as equals.

At some time during this encounter Athena points to the fact that not only can she cast magic but that she is a priest. This is frowned upon by many in the room, none more than Galahad who was already watching her intently before her revelation. After the meeting it is divulged that Galahad can see things that others can’t and he knows that Athena’s powers aren’t being granted by the god she thinks it is, but instead an evil one. They also say that there is not a single good god in this world. King Arthur also divulges that he knows exactly who the heroes are and says the heroes names and their parents names. Angelina, never having met her mother, takes this abruptly.

In the end Merlin enters the room, and to the heroes amazement he is none other than Garland Tarn.
