Ok , one short and sweet version coming up.

1. King calls us to castle. Tells us the swirling magic gem is turning black. Tells us it's because Keeko split Meeko into four parts somehow and took his power, making him super Keeko. Also, it was Keeko influencing the Swatrs government to being bad. Told us the general location of the first Meeko part. Also gave us a ring of Keeko holding, and a dagger of Keeko stabbing. (Named by Andy)

2. Went into the Black Forest. Found an opening with two Iron Golems, some displacer beasts and bug bears. Solomon cast insect plague for the lving creatures. Coon, Hewill, and Number One cast lightning on one of the golems until dead. Lytle backstabs the other. First Meeko found in one of the golems.

3. Into Swatrs. Above a lake we find the next Meeko inside of a dragon turtle. Also there's a water elemental. Lightninged the elemental to death. Lytle took care of the dragon.

4. Into Minta. Above a cave we find Gary the Green Dragon, 4 etins, and a dozen or so worgs. Hewill casts a illusion type spell to make most of them think they're falling down a cliff. Lytle sneaks in and kills an etin. True seeing tells us Gary was an illusion. 3rd Meeko found.

5. Into Acirema. Above a shack we found a bunch of chimeras gaurding the shack with a ghost inside of it. Because of our other 3 Meeko's jumping off we have to attack. Meeko makes a blast to scare away Chimeras and then holds the ghost in place. Sol turns the ghost. Meekos combine into Meeko again. Behind us we hear Keeko. Hewill holds him with the ring. We consult the King and Vader. They both say to kill Keeko. We aren't so sure because we didn't want to destrupt the balance...but we didn't really have a choice. Sol, Coon, and Number One grab most of the magic and fly away. Hewill releases Keeko and Lytle begins stabbing him.

BUT...Meeko understanding the balance jumps in the way of the stab....the dagger as it is stabbing turns into a long sword and goes through both Meeko and Keeko. They touch, both die....HUGE explosion. Affected us a mile away. Hewill dies. Lytle dies, because of the explosion and the dagger stole his life energy away. He aged super many years.

Back home, King doesn't give any rewards. Magic Gem is all white. Magic works completely normal again. Lytle gets back to life, and uses a wish spell to restore his lost attributes. Hewill is also resurrected. Once again, absolutly no rewards were given. But the world is safe.

The End

Question: The magic is balanced when the gem is rainbow colored(since it gauges magic). If it is black that means it is off balance and some evil force is now doing something bad. Since it is good does that mean magic is more towards the good side? Is clerical magic counted here or only wizard magic(since their magic is different).

Well done summary Sergio. I think you got all the main points.

Thanks Steve.

As for the gem being white, we don't think it's because good is more powerful now. There's just neither meeko or keeko...so it's no color. But just in And yes, it's just magic user magic, not cleric.

This further supports my theroy on mulitple types of magic. I bet if this thing did count clerical magic it would be semi black since the Lich is still about. Why can't there ever be any super strong good guy? I mean, there is that one wizard but he is really old(and currently sick because of making those weapons. Here is your chance guys to get back at him) and some of the older guys are almost as strong as him now. We need a level 20 something good guy.

The reason it didn't affect cleric magic is because clerics get their power from whatever god they pray to. That lich...nothing to do with anything. The gem was only controlled by Meeko and Keeko's balance. No one elses. Also, there have been mutliple liches in the world.

Aren't liches somehow related to evil clerics, thus meaing they are somehow related to evil gods?

Nope. Liches are undead high level magic users. Not related to clerics at all. I think for it to be a lich, in life it had to be at least level 15 magic user or something crazy like that. The way it works is that they get so powerful, they learn to defy death through magic.

Afternoon gents from foggy london town,

sounds like a game eh?

So what'd you lose from the group fund and what did you "borrow" from Urza and how did you not get any cash money/items/anything?

Brent is little.


That is all.

None of the monsters we killed had any treasure on them. Except the bug bears which had a total of 6 gold. The gem is worth nothing now. And the magic items we used to kill Meeko/Keeko are powerless now too. Nothing was borrowed from Urza that I know of. I think Lytle and Hewill are the only people that lost anything, and not much then either.

Sergio's right, not much was lost, although the potential was there to loose huge amounts of magical items at the end, including several lives.

No reward this time because the king pulled rank and made them go on the quest. Thanks to them you (Urza) are still the mayor of Pleasantville.

Although if you decide to argue about it that could change.

The King should now treat them better though for saving his bum, right?

Oh, guess I was wrong about the lich. Seemed like something an evil god would want to do. A clerics magic ability is only granted by the god(who is really actually casting the spell) so if you take away the source the cleric will be uselss(easier said then done). A magic user on the other hand does something with bending space and some other stuff, I dunno. He is however as far as we know of, his own source. Gods could probally give a cleric all these wizard spells, but they are gods and don't want to so the clerics don't get it.

Does this sound plausable that any god's magic is different from a wizard's magic?(though a god could do wizard stuff if they want)?
