Urza Van Burace's trip to the Versal Ruins
To start this
out I went to the local mage guild in Givemea and enchanted some
I enchanted my two-handed sword in a +2 mithril two-handed sword and I
enchanted my dagger to +1.
I needed some other
so I looked in my favorite bar. Earl wasn't bartending but Butch was. I
sat down next to Flame Foreslae, who I have adventured with before. We
still needed more people so I looked at a ugly half-orc absorbed in his
own "glory". All he said that his name was Bill. (Little Bill I guess
said.) I asked him to accompany my party. He agreed. That made 3 people.
We left the next
from the town square to the ruins. Around sundown we arrived at the
gates of Lassic. Other groups were waiting there also.
The next morning we
into the town. There was a spring festival happening in the town. Our
had a problem with three dwarves at a shop. He said one of the dwarves
mom was a gully dwarf. Almost started a brawl because of his ignorance.
They were getting stolen from so they quickly ran back to their shop.
I went bar called
"Pegasus Wing", no one looked impressive. Bill asked for strong
ale! I laughed but let him try it. Two sips and he was down. I asked
wine. I brought Bill out to the cart because he was obviously wasted.
We didn't find
party member in the bar. As I stepped outside the bar I found three
women. The leader looked at Bill and was disgusted. Anyway, the other
were interested in me. I asked them to join us, but the leader
I told them some other time. They agreed with me on that.
We still needed a
though. Our party of two, since Bill was
incapacitated headed to "The Long Tequila". Smoke billowed out
bar so we decided not to enter. The next bar we headed to was
Queen". A Soloman Pras bar. (Enough said.)
As we headed back
the Inn. We found a cleric that had way to much to drink. He looked
a good adventurer. (Or somewhat) I pinned on his shirt a note to meet
in the Gold Piece Inn.
I went to the
and gave the boy working there a gold piece to take care of my horses.
(Indeed our horses were groomed and taken care of.)
We headed into the
I told the innkeeper to give any tall, extremely attractive ladies the
way to my room. Tell a cleric to sit down in one of the chairs and tell
another women to get a room. He didn't understand so I explained it to
William the cleric
first. He sat down but missed his chair. I threw him in his bed.
Flame came next. I
her to her room as an Amazon came into the door. The innkeeper tried to
hide a laugh. I brought the Amazon into my room. Gillian was her name.
I had to take my armor off for obvious reasons. She was massaging my
(Too many battles.) Anyway her leader busted down my door and told me
I laughed, she wouldn't dare battle me. So they both left.
Anyway the next
the party was up and all tired for some reason or another. I had to
myself to William. We all got grouped up and left the town of Lassic.
The next night we
8 large birds. Looked like ostriches. That same night we fought some 20
orcs. I killed half. Everyone was unconscious at one time except for
After the battle we used potions and spells from William to get to near
full strength. We found 180 electrum.
Then out of no

enemies of course. (Sigh) Clavin had to teach Bill some "lessons" on
and fighting. Bill couldn't pronounce Clavin's last name.
Clavin seemed to be
respectable person. Nice to have someone that I can actually talk to as
an equal, or very near.
We made it to Inter
days later, absolutely nothing was in this town. No magic items in
stores. We spent the night at their Inn. Gillian met outside my window.
Bill was next door although so that ruined that.
We left that
and found 9 wererats on the way. I killed 4 this time. Clavin fumbled
threw his weapon twice. Once nearly hitting me. At the end of the
we were standing alone again. We found 5 longswords and 3 shortswords.
So we healed up the others and continued on to Cocola.
We made it to
at midday. We found nothing in the magic stores or the map making
Not uncommon in Cocola though. (Drow dwell here.)
The bar was next
I walked in first and asked for Zarlaxle. Wrong name, I forgot it to be
Jarlaxle. The bartender gave me zero information. I walked outside and
found two drow waiting there. They wore simple clothing and had no
insignia or clan markings or magic on them noticeable, very unlike drow
standards. I asked to see Jarlaxle but they denied me. I said I had a
and to carry on the word. (I have ulterior motives though.) By the way,
no one was on the streets when I spoke with them. Odd that the whole
knows that drow are about.
We headed out to
Versal Ruins the next day. We were about half-way there when Meeko
Clavin didn't like Meeko. So one thing led to another and Meeko
us to Rodun. It seems that Rodun is getting rebuilt by thieves. Again.
Anyway a few
came to battle but Meeko teleported us back to Givemea.
In all we got 130
pieces to divide amongst ourselves. 33 gold a piece we got. But the
thing was that these adventurers aren't totally newbies anymore. They
