Level: 1

First Session: Monday -- April 15th, 2013 -- 7:00 PM

Description:
ALL THE PLAYERS MUST BE PIXIES.

King Sunfire, the lord of the pixies, has a most important quest for you. Watch out for hungry bats and screaming scarecrows!

A vast Feywild swamp slowly seethes into our world, conjured by a malevolent hag. The Murkendraw’s unstoppable progress widens Rotten Ethel’s dominion by a few steps each day, and with it, the hag’s ambition.

When Rotten Ethel kidnaps the fairest pixie of all, the swamp’s advance suddenly quickens. The fairy folk need brave heroes to turn back the tide and venture forth to rescue Glitterdust.

May 3, 2013 6:28 PM - kentmagus: It was a lot of fun. Thanks, Xerek
May 3, 2013 5:56 PM - Saj: I had a lot of fun, Xerek. go pixie
Apr 30, 2013 4:18 PM - Xerek: Thanks for running the gauntlet everyone.
Apr 30, 2013 1:12 AM - Lisa: Hard but kinda awesome module. Thanks!
Apr 29, 2013 11:45 PM - AVacc: Great time! Thanks for running, xerek.
Apr 28, 2013 10:42 AM - AVacc: I moved my game out a week - Xerek - you can pit one up for the 6th...
Apr 25, 2013 9:44 PM - Capt_Dan: Folks - Art - if you have to push by one week, I'd be happy to push by one; as long as mines is good for two sessions.
Apr 25, 2013 8:34 PM - Xerek: So, to confirm, the obvious consensus is to meet up on Monday, enjoy some Pixie awesomeness, and see where we fly at the end of the night. See everyone Monday.
Apr 25, 2013 12:05 PM - Lisa: Votes 2
Apr 25, 2013 9:42 AM - kentmagus: Votes for Option 2.
Apr 24, 2013 10:58 PM - Saj: ditto about option 2
Apr 24, 2013 9:46 AM - AVacc: Option 2 would be my favorite choice because I cant do friday but I am otherwise, generally flexible for weekdays.
Apr 23, 2013 11:06 PM - Xerek: I cancelled because we needed the full time to make it through, and running with 3 wouldn't stretch very well. We can 1) try for at least 4 people on Friday, 2) run on Monday, and decide when to schedule another before the next monday 3) cancel the adventure as we'd be pushing everything else out 1-2 weeks. I'm open to other suggestions and opinions...thoughts?
Apr 22, 2013 5:15 PM - Xerek: This is a no go for this evening. Let's see if an alternate date will work.
Apr 22, 2013 3:42 PM - Lisa: Xerek, can you make a call on this? I need to figure out what I'm doing tonight, and it takes me a while to get to Manhattan.
Apr 22, 2013 3:40 PM - AVacc: Go? No go?
Apr 22, 2013 3:01 PM - Saj: Actually, I can come today, but only around 8pm
Apr 22, 2013 1:46 PM - Saj: :(, am stuck at work too. We have a production issue that we have to fix ASAP. I am good tues and weds, but today looks like a no go. Sorry.
Apr 22, 2013 12:36 PM - Xerek: Then we'll have to skip a week or run without people.
Apr 22, 2013 12:35 PM - AVacc: Sorry but I cant do Fridays or weekend :(
Apr 22, 2013 12:28 PM - Xerek: I can do Friday, or Sunday
Apr 22, 2013 11:17 AM - Tracy: Wed?
Apr 22, 2013 10:48 AM - Lisa: I can't do tomorrow, but possibly another night.
Apr 22, 2013 10:15 AM - AVacc: I can make it tomorrow.
Apr 22, 2013 10:10 AM - Tracy: so...is there any way we can move this to tomorrow? I didn't think anyone knew it was my birthday today, but apparently my work friends are shifty and they have 'plans' for me tonight.
Apr 20, 2013 8:43 PM - Saj: hmm, defiantly have to have a coordinated team plan before we engage the hut
Apr 18, 2013 3:29 PM - AVacc: Is it Monday, yet?
Apr 17, 2013 3:25 PM - Xerek: As an addendum to my earlier comment: Even for combat encounters, you are all playing a different game than what you should be. Everyone is playing this as a 2 dimensional slug fest. You are all pixies. Think 3 dimensional, think cover/stealth, think flight. You must approach this entire adventure with a new eye, everyone is a pixie. All the normal rules of conduct should be thrown out of the window: fly outside the box!
Apr 17, 2013 3:23 PM - AVacc: cool.
Apr 17, 2013 3:22 PM - Xerek: I'd like to wait till next week to see how far you guys get. It's totally dooable
Apr 17, 2013 11:27 AM - AVacc: Xerek, Do you want me to push my NEXT game back a week? Can we be done in time? I shoudl do it sooner rather than later.
Apr 17, 2013 11:26 AM - AVacc: sweet
Apr 17, 2013 10:56 AM - Xerek: Team: This is not an adventure you can power through with battle tactics. You must think your way through this adventure. There are a lot of non-combat encounters/adventurings that you need to be successful at.
Apr 15, 2013 4:49 PM - kentmagus: Also, Dan, hope you get better soon.
Apr 15, 2013 3:31 PM - Lisa: So, Pixies. Can they carry things? Like rope etc. Backpacks seem absurd with the wings. Also, can I tote around multiple throwing daggers, or is that not "shrink"-able?
Apr 15, 2013 3:31 PM - kentmagus: I'm what!? I gotta go print stuff! BBL!
Apr 15, 2013 2:23 PM - Capt_Dan: Really sorry for the late notice, not been well over the weekend and worse today, so I can't make it; Kent - you're up!
Apr 15, 2013 1:26 PM - Tracy: Other Fey Superstitions:
Visible Iron means Hostility (sheathed weapons are acceptable, armor is not!)
Iron, Holy symbols, and reciting prayers to a good diety can keep lesser fey away.
Do NOT lie.
Honor bargains.
Swearing thrice makes a thing so.
Apr 15, 2013 1:25 PM - Tracy: I have a pouch of owlbear musk that isn't sealed properly. I haven't had a date in months. My Superstition: If you receive a gift, you must give one in return, of relatively the same value (though fey and mortals place different value on things!)
Apr 14, 2013 8:24 PM - Saj: wow, we are 1 to 6 inches tall! that makes my dagger around half an inch! I am pretty much carrying a bunch of small needles.(curious how I am doing 1d4+7 with them)
Apr 14, 2013 7:57 PM - Lisa: I take (When in doubt, sing and shout) and Love Philter. I'm pretty sure it's spelled like that because of Phil Collins.
Apr 14, 2013 7:38 PM - Xerek: Yes, level 1 Pixies. 1 item that no-one else has chosen and 1 superstition (preferably different from others', but not req'd)
Apr 14, 2013 7:10 PM - Lisa: Woot woot. I thought this was filled up. But it looks like there's space. Lvl 1s, right? And then a bunch of other weird stuff from the list.
Apr 11, 2013 1:46 PM - Capt_Dan: Pixies are 1-6 inches tall; a thick piece of glitter on a match, on a base would do it... I will be using a gnome mini, for the small base/ looks. Presumably, we are up against regular sized foes?
Apr 11, 2013 1:11 PM - AVacc: Finding Pixie Minis is neigh impossible :(
Apr 11, 2013 10:17 AM - Xerek: So Ross, did you want to join?
Apr 11, 2013 8:45 AM - Frank: I do apologize for having to leave but my boss informed me yesterday that he has night shifts coming up and needs me to supervise so I have to drop out I'm sorry
Apr 10, 2013 12:56 PM - Xerek: I will not plan on knowing what your special items do, that is up to you to have the knowledge of. Just remind me what your item is from the list and what your superstition is at the table please.
Apr 10, 2013 8:14 AM - Tracy: Look sharp General Saj & Capt Dan. You will be my hands in taking out these minstrals of mayhem wot wot.
Apr 9, 2013 7:16 PM - Saj: I like the night spider silk, seems fitting
Apr 9, 2013 7:10 PM - Saj: I am essentials rogue. I am using a dagger (a very tiny dagger) so I have both good MBA and RBA (short range though). I choose to lie to human (at least one third the time)
Apr 6, 2013 7:48 PM - Frank: im not essentials i went scoundrel
Apr 6, 2013 5:38 PM - Tracy: You Rogues are essentials right? Good MBA or RBA's?
Apr 3, 2013 8:21 PM - Capt_Dan: Buckwild, the 'Gruff' Pixie hunter, with his tiny bow, made of twigs and silk, has cold Iron (Because you can't trust some buggers) and always agrees to the ever bizarre demands of Grasshoppers...
Apr 1, 2013 12:41 PM - Frank: That's N train right
Apr 1, 2013 12:32 PM - Tracy: 5th ave & 30th
Mar 30, 2013 8:34 PM - Frank: i dont know where that place is
Mar 29, 2013 11:31 PM - Xerek: It's at Au bon Gout, far superior to Citi Center except when the AC isn't yet on in the heat of the summer, and even then...
Mar 29, 2013 8:18 PM - Frank: thats awesome thanks man i appreciate it but where is this being held? and if we dont have a place yet to me citi center is the best cause they dont kick you after a certain time
Mar 29, 2013 5:05 PM - Xerek: I'll go ahead and lock the line-up, so you don't have to worry about getting kicked off, since this is still a ways out.
Mar 29, 2013 5:00 PM - AVacc: I rolled a 1 for my superstition and I called the Tattlebugs :)
Mar 29, 2013 4:58 PM - Frank: im using the scoundrel rogue
Mar 29, 2013 12:19 PM - Tracy: I will be the proud bearer of Owlbear Musk, wot wot. Now a call to arms chaps! The league of extaordinary gentlefey will rescue the fair Glitterdust. First one there gets the maiden's kiss!
Mar 28, 2013 11:36 PM - Saj: oh, this will be fun. Frank what type of rogue are you planning. I was thinking I would play a dagger wielding pixie with tactical trick and unbalancing trick
Mar 28, 2013 5:51 PM - Capt_Dan: I would agree with that, themes can be a little unbalancing, and they blot out some of the RP as well.
Mar 28, 2013 4:49 PM - AVacc: Actually after re-reading the house rules they say "No "Themes" except in Dark Sun adventures." I had remembered that as no backgrounds. In any case, I prefer a simpler character.
Mar 27, 2013 11:34 PM - AVacc: Cool.
Mar 27, 2013 11:31 PM - Xerek: This isn't like a long drawn out adventure where having Themes is going to unbalance something. I'm not a stickler and don't really care; but I'm not interested in getting on James' bad side.
Mar 27, 2013 10:13 PM - AVacc: Do you want to rule on the themes individually? I chose Sohei (because of the powers) but I envisioned Raine a young pixie raised at a temple who became an archainst to rebel against his well meaning but strict guardians.
Mar 27, 2013 10:03 PM - AVacc: My build is sorta-kinda strikerish...
Mar 27, 2013 9:59 PM - Frank: well i see we need strikers i am making a pixie rogue
Mar 27, 2013 9:58 PM - Xerek: Keep in mind that a lot of themes would not go well with a Pixie. and i'll go ahead and say no to the Fey Beast Trainer...just because
Mar 27, 2013 9:52 PM - Xerek: If it fits with your character thematically/story-wise, sure, w/e; but not if it's just for extra shit your character can do.
Mar 27, 2013 8:17 PM - Frank: are themes allowed?
Mar 27, 2013 12:33 PM - Xerek: sorry for the spam everyone, @James, is it possible to increase the comment size?
Mar 27, 2013 12:32 PM - AVacc: Tattlebugs!
Mar 27, 2013 12:32 PM - Xerek: Tattlebugs
When songs are sung in Senaliesse, the forests surrounding the city ring with beautiful echoes that
emanate from the tattlebugs living in the trees. These
scintillating beetles can mimic sound by rubbing
their hind legs together.
The mimicry of adult tattlebugs is almost indistinguishable from the originator of the sound, so they’re
often used as spying devices. When placed in sight of
another of its kind, a tattlebug repeats everything it
has heard in the last five mins
Mar 27, 2013 12:32 PM - Frank: That's awesome I'm so down it this pixie power I'm gonna make one when I get home
Mar 27, 2013 12:31 PM - Xerek: Owlbear Musk
Some brave hunters shadow owlbears in heat to track
down the males. Centaurs are practiced in luring
hormone-crazed owlbears into traps, and they can
extract musk glands from a corpse in seconds.
A single whiff of owlbear musk is strong enough to
bring an enchanted creature crashing back to reality,
immediately ending any dazing, stunning, or dominating magical effects. Each pouch is good for three
doses, after which its potency fades away.
Mar 27, 2013 12:30 PM - Xerek: Nightspider Silk
The spiders of Brokenstone Vale weave a thread that
can be seen only by the light of the moon. When
the clouds part, these silvered webs glow as though
painted with gleaming dewdrops. A spool of nightspider silk is strong as a length of wire but wholly
invisible during the day.
Mar 27, 2013 12:30 PM - Xerek: Love Philter
The Court of Stars delights in sowing affection
between unlikely partners, turning chaste men into
wild philanderers or making predators fall for their
prey. When a drop of this honeyed draught is applied
to a subject’s lips, the victim falls madly in love with
the next creature he or she sees, but only until the following morning.
Mar 27, 2013 12:29 PM - Xerek: Everyone can choose one treasure from the below list to start the adventure with. There is only 1 of each available, so no duplicates. Descriptions of those without an asterisk will follow.

1) Cold iron shavings (1 bag)*
2) Flower of the dawn*
3) Love philter
4) Nightspider silk
5) Owlbear musk
6) Pixie music box*
7) Senaliesse chrysanthemum*
8) Tattlebugs (pair)
*These items are detailed in Player’s Option: Heroes of the
Feywild.
Mar 27, 2013 12:24 PM - Xerek: Everyone should choose or roll randomly from the below chart. Treat these like the Fate system. You can do your particular superstition at an inopportune time to gain an extra Action Point. You can activate this superstition once in the adventure.
Mar 27, 2013 12:22 PM - Xerek: d10 Pixie Superstition
1 Never pass a mushroom ring without stopping to dance a jig inside it.
2 Eat honey when you can.
3 Don’t go down steps by starlight.
4 Every third answer given to a human must be a lie.
5 When in doubt, sing and shout.
6 Never hide inside the hollow of a dead tree.
7 It is bad luck to follow a human inside a house.
8 Never fly over flames.
9 Always knock before entering somebody else’s home.
10 Never say “no” to a grasshopper.
Mar 27, 2013 11:07 AM - AVacc: Raine the swordmage always wanted to rescue a fair maiden. Glitterdust, we are coming!
Mar 26, 2013 8:07 PM - Tracy: Commander Toot Toot reporting for battle. Sah. Za brigade, report for battle. Sah.
Mar 26, 2013 6:16 PM - Tracy: This works great for me. :)
Mar 24, 2013 6:24 PM - Xerek: Since noone else is as yet interested; I'll happily move this out to continue the Monday trend.
Mar 23, 2013 12:16 AM - Capt_Dan: I would love to play, but I can only do one thing a week, and i'm on Rob's gme for three weeks - if you push it to mid April, i'm all in.
Mar 20, 2013 7:52 AM - Xerek: After reading through the adventure more thoroughly, this will likely take a bit more time. I'm going to move it to a Wednesday Evening slot.
Mar 19, 2013 3:35 PM - Xerek: This looks like a fun adventure. Pixie power! The goal is to one shot it all afternoon into the evening. I'm open to location and/or timing. Let's see how many sign up, I realize it's short-ish notice.
