Another graduation ceremony, we had one two years ago, but I guess we’re in a hurry to rush the greenhorns to their graves. it was expectantly long winded, but the food afterwards was good. That’s when Headmaster Telemachus gave me my new orders. I was to watch over five Padawans as they did simple missions for the Alliance. This is who they were the Aasimorc Nishant Deryn a Drow, a Gnome, A Grey Elf/Assimar namedDaenes Heasirretyn, and something called a Horn Head Sauriel. This group is proof that we accept anyone.
We left Odysseus on Headmaster Louis’s ship The Killer Louis I was introduced to my wards while still on the ship. Their files didn’t do them justice, and not in a good way. the Aasimorc, who is hailed as the current pinnacle of orcish development, seems to be little more than an awkward kid who just hit puberty. The Drow has not only the expected level of fighting nature for his species, but also a level of angst that would make a half-elf gawk at him in emo pride. Speaking of half-elves, this one doesn’t posses a single wick of half-blood angst. She is outgoing and very conversation. She also doesn’t wear a lot in the way of clothes. I understand that she is from a tropical climate, and can excuse her fashion choice for that. But that doesn’t make it any easier not to stare at her jugs. I do believe I have resisted the temptation for the most part, which is more than I can say for the Aasimorc.
The Sauriel is by far the least annoying of the group. He doesn’t speak. I find this a refreshing pace compared to the Elf and the Gnome. I do however smell an aura of condescension always exuding from the Sauriel’s pores. The Gnome has a pet Gerbil and a Giant Hamster…. He parades these two around and tries to make money off of them everywhere we go. Daenes also has a pet, but it is only a small song bird, and she keeps it under control, unlike the Gnome’s circus.
So our first orders are to retrieve a magical item from the desert north of Al-quadim’s port town of Zakhara. I don’t know much more about the item than that.
When Headmaster Louis’s ship landed on First Station, we disembarked and I set the Padawans to finding a ship to take us to Al-Qadim. I rested in he Enclave. I shared a drink with Alden, who was the ranking Jedi of the enclave. his stick in the mud attitude reminded me to be less like that myself. A few hours after sending them out, the Gnome came back emphatic that we take the Iglacia. He convinced the rest of the party and we set off in the bucket of bolts the next morning.
During the ensuing trip we were attacked by greater pirates. I found it a welcome reprieve from the hamster’s half ring circus. the Sauriel and Drow guarded the right side of the ship, and the Elf and Aasimorc guarded the left. The Gnome and the iglacia’s engineer the ship left the ship and attacked the outside of the enemy ship. After a while the ship’s Captain recruited the elf, and the Drow to go with him to the other ship’s bridge. The Helmsman took the Aasimorc to clean out the other ship’s stores. The Sauriel and the Gnome, when he returned from outside, stayed with me to clean up the bodies and give them impromptu funeral rights.
The others returned and we went on our way. the Drow and Elf told about how the pirate ship had been captained by a mechanical replica of Griff the Giff. I wasn’t there so I don’t know, but I won’t doubt them.
I will award bonus Xp for the person that writes an Adventure Log for Space Campaign.
Here’s how it will work. Each of you will get a turn to write an adventure log post. We will go in descending order of age. We started with Ian, but he didn’t write one so he won’t be going again until everyone else has a chance.
On your turn to write the Adventure Log, you must do so before the end of the Thursday following game. Failure to do so will result in the loss of the possible bonus Xp. You may still post the Adventure log, but I will write the session from an NPC’s perspective just to make sure that a record is made.
Bonus Xp rewarded = Character level*50
