Chapter 3

After witnessing first-hand the battle seeds of Varisia’s New War, the three accompanied Whetten-Brun on their final friendly journey, this time northward. Upon discovering the Linfroenel’s tapping of his dreams, Durin was first to realize the dwarf had departed them. A gruesome confrontation in the Realm of the Wyrm Yrrundius, “the Lessener,” uncovered the hidden plot of the Oracle, and her weary but determined allies.


The death of her only true companion has brought Yuko to the edge of living. The remaining fighters, abandoned now by all who they had trusted, find new strength in the Land of the Linnorm Kings. With information from the Elven frontierswoman, Cecedooburyie, they formulate their next move, to council the “Face of God,” Ych-dooburyie, Time Dragon of Mt. Svalbard, who rests deep in the Glacial North, protected by a mystic band of ice trolls.

Chapter 2

Irok and his small band arrived upon the lake shore town of Whistledown, south of the Ausgolan forest border. They happened upon two river guides from the Varisian Coastal Escort, who sailed the party out of the central mountains and around the toll of the Great Dam at Melfesh. Camyllie revealed herself to be a feline shapeshifter and spoke of contact named Deadric Whetten-brun in Janderhoff. Durin, with his knowledge of the Eastward landscape, lead the team unmolested toward the Dwarven Sky Citadel, through a land dotted with brigades of Korvosan Pikemen.

The Janderhoff cabinet proved toilsome over the simultaneous human encroachments of a new “Variasian Force” from the west and the Korvosan patrols from the south, but the travelers were more concerned about tracking down the elusive Whetten-Brun. Trading in “Dorothy” for some of the ubiquitous Janderhoff Cold Steel weaponry, they were finally able to confess the Oracle’s instruction to the mage. Taken aback by an undisclosed vision come true, Whetten-Brun advised taking the tunnel route through Old Janderhoff toward Riddleport.


Prehistoric caverns and opulent halls, long abandoned, made up the dungeonesque earthen fortress. Though it had become a new home to some outsiders who dwell in the depths, Yuko’s steadfast mount lead the combatants in making quick work of the strange, demonic zootomy. Save a brief pause to recalibrate the portal system’s intriguing, ethereal, clock-work navigator, the four steadily bludgeoned their way toward Riddleport, and made off with some yet unidentified trinkets: a dagger dripping a green fog, an iridescent pearl, a blade found where treasure wouldn’t be, and the twinkling ring remnant of a strange cave beast. Showing some signs of fatigue, Irok succumbed to the bite of the mega-avian Lasha-a’ The Terrible in a battle at the bottom of the final ravine. His companions proved their dedication by removing a Lasha-a’ Mask from the beast’s corpse and porting his unconscious body out of danger.

Chapter 1

Whether victims or beneficiaries of Circumstance, the “farlanders” Yuko and Durin were chosen by the Daughter of Crows as deputized agents against an Ausgolan invasion. Yuko, trying boldly to maintain the virtues of honor and dignity among the base Varisian cosmopolity has mustered only a tentative alliance with the well-meaning tribe of Sanos Forest. Durin, adopted Dwarven disciple of the Fey, however, has easily found in this barbarian defense a channel for his green intentions.

While his fellow tribesmen prepared their families for a trespassing hunting party, Irok escorted the group westward toward the Oracle. Her methods were queer but her message was direct, to slip southward from the forest and make toward Janderhoff, then return with the unbiased wisdom of Varisia’s only non-human statesmen.


With the assistance of Irok’s childhood partner-in-arms, Mortimor Quelles, the three vanquished an assailing People’s Force Lieutenant by taking a strategic position (not inside of spiked pit trap). They then took their leave of forest town, their gear supplemented by some Sipplerose Leather Armor, Yuko’s recovered mount, and a man-sized double-barreled rifle labeled only “Dorothy”.

An odd encounter with a ludicrously vindictive Satyr named Lucy and his dragonfly-winged cronies held up the southward march, if only briefly, before they finally reached the thinning Sanos Forest edge. In the distance they saw the faint plumes of smoke from coal-burning Whistledown stoves, the first of many human towns dotting the easterly route to Janderhoff.
