Default [Banestorm] Current Events in our Campaign World

Greetings GURPS Fans, our GURPS Fantasy Campaign has been running for 18yrs and its still going strong. I wanted to ask for your input on a few things.

On Going Conflicts

Orc Lands/Zarak/Caithness - The Orcs have been beaten back and the Dwarves, Humans, and Elves seem to be prepared. Dain wish to find the Lost City of Grinnel. They believe however that the Orcs number in the hundreds of thousands and that they will return.

The Megalosian Civil War - Will the PCs got to Megalos to aid their friends and allies. Count Joseph and Countess Lavalee. Sir errandis is obligated to do so.
- Duke Mehan is besieged.
- Duke Craine is marching with his armies through Hidelban. He posseses the most experienced troops in Megalos.
- Earl Dekamura is solidifying his conquest of southern Megalos. He is acting uncharacteristically patcient, but his Naval Forces were destroyed.

The Al-Wazifi conquest of Araterre - Will the PCs join the forces marshalling to free Araterre. Lord Imric is obligated to go. Rene is feeling patriotic call of duty.

Cardiel - Lord Imric, the Princes Champion and temporary Court Wizard found and killed the Banestorm Sorcerer responsible for the assassination attempts on the Prince and learned the Duke Anthemis of Hadaton Crivelli was his sponsor, but a skilled player and left no evidence.

The Djinn Lands - Investigating the connection between the Orcs and the Djinn Landers. Unexplored and a mysterious land.

The Black Woods - The Horror's Minions still infest the great wood and are still a threat to all under its trees.

Bilit Island - The Horror that shall not be names lies burried deep beneth the earth waiting. A Cthulhu like creature that stretched their sanity and in one case a PC traded place with himself from a Yrth that suffered no Banestorm.

The Sea Elf/Fish Man War - A conflict that has raged for years. Several of the PCs want to aid them, but the conflicts ongoing hae prevented it.

The Angel's on Yrth - The PCs have stumbled accross the body of one Angel and evidence of anther in two locations in Caithness. In the first a group from the Fists of Micheal negotiated for the body of one from the PCs and witnessed the aftermath a local Baliff's home.

Jesus/Isu - Healing Plague victums in Geb Al-Din and aggrivating Christendom for heretical preechings. One of the PCs (Ismael) wants to find him. Jesus Christ Cthulhu-Slayer?

Now as Winter turns to Spring the campaigning season begins in earnest. The Companions must decide where to go and what to do next. Who are they you ask? Good question, and here they are.



Character Compendium:

Imric A male mountain elf Wizard, Baron of Lorien, Grand Master of the Order of the Hearth and founding member of the Wrecking Crew. A sickly albino, with a silver chased hook replacing his right hand. Yet he exudes an aura of the macabre (death). He is renowned as a powerful Wizard and the Fist of the Prince, but this is also darkened by his reputed use of Necromancy and infamous cruelty. He is an absentee land lord, but still maintains close control of his lands. He seeks to stop the threat to the Black Woods and the Elves.

Ismael A male human Rogue, Warrior, and Wizard. He was born in Al-Haz and fled to the City of Tredroy to avoid being killed as a Wizard. He strong senses of drama which at times is at odds with the Companions goals. He is unpredictable and that makes him as often an asset as annoyance to some companions.

Duin a male dwarf Warrior, A Master Axeman. He adventures with the Companions to watch Imric and eventually return to his lost homeland and reclaim it from the Orcs and other creatures in the dark. He somewhat romantic/lecher when it comes to short women.

Artesian an female elf Wizard. This lady is infatuated with Imric and mentally disturbed. She desires to be Queen of the Elves. Yet the elves do not have queens. The longer she lives the more powerful she becomes. Only time will determine if she reaches her goals. She will follow Imric anywhere.

Kraypike A male goblin Wizard. This corpulent Elementalist Mage is obsessed with creating Elementals and Magic in general. He is cousin to a former member of the Companions. He is a practical joker and often at the expense of the Companions.

Rene Auberjonois - a human male Master Swordsman and Rogue. He loves gambling, wenching, and dueling. His tounge is as sharpe and fast as his rapier. He hears the call to free Araterre from the Wazifi Invasion and holds in his heart the dream of freedom.

Fingolfin a male wood elf Wizard Warrior. Journeyman Enchanter and Smith. His quest is to create a "Hastur Blade". He is graduate of Istarlond and member of the Companions.

Errandis a male wood elf Warrior Wizard. Knight of Lavalee, Captain of the Rangers of Lebethron, and founding members of the Companions.Heir to the House of Menelmagor. Master Bard, Merchant, and Courtier. Married to Luthien of Lebethron.

Cat - a male Were Panther Warrior. Knight of the Order of the Stone, Weapons Master and sometimes member of the Velvet Hammer and the Companions. Married to Dame Kenzie of Sterling.

...and he has an unrequited love for an elf named Kira of the family Neryssa??

He also finds the legal scribe and advocate Dennis of Craine very annoying??

However, during that posting he earned the enmity of the famed Chevalier Benson of the Sharp Wit.

Of course, the Aralaise he interacts the most with is the Goblin Innkeeper Qu'ark, who's shady dealings routinely attract Auberjonois's suspicions, and the two frequently lock horns on various subjects.

Oddly enough, however, they have a strong, grudging respect for one another, and have occasionally come to each other's defense, though always claiming to have an ulterior motive..
