Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Tillak looks at his companions. 

"We have been cursed by deviltry! Y'thaqa's bones!" 

OOC: Is our hair just longer, or is it grey as well?



  • “Moonglum licked his long lips. 'So it’s sorcery again. In truth, Elric, this whole country is beginning to stink of wizardry and the minions of hell.' Elric murmured for his friend’s ears: 'No hell-beings these—but honest elementals, equally powerful in many ways.'"

Gundrabu tries to snap off a long nail by bending it against the stone edge of the fount.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

They are thick and gnarly things now, will definitely need a blade or saw.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Gundrabu reaches out with his consciousness for the Kraken. It seems to him that he has “slept,” after a fashion. Has the Kraken therefore filled his rested mind with its full complement of blessings (i.e., spells)?

Gundrabu can hear the faraway pounding of surf as listening to a shell. He knows it will take time to recall the Kraken.

ooc: Whoa whoa whoa, are we talking the Hyperborean moon Phobos (a 7-day cycle) or Selene (a 45.5 day cycle)? Either one is different from the Earth moon's 28day cycle.

This would be a great time to plug in the setting's calendar: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/109228/Hyperborea-Annual-Calendar

If we do that, are we assuming that the game started at the assumed starting year of 576CAE, or before so that the current time jump starts us off at 576 (saving us time and paperwork, if we use the provided calendar from the PDF)?

What kind of crazy question is this, Kondor knows full well that his memories would reference twin totality.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

See, if it's Phobos, then 4ft at 1/2inch per moon is (4x12=96"x2=) 192 weeks we've been asleep. At 13 months a year, 4 weeks a month (192/4=48 months/13) 3.692307692 years (approximately 3.7 years).

However, if it's 1/2inch per Selene moon rotation (45.5 days) that 45.5x192= 8736 days/364 (hyperborean calendar days) =24 years.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

What's twin totality? (honest question, I'm blanking)

My brain is futzed right now, so I'm hopefully not off on the math.

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Kondor recomputes. "Let's see, It grows 1/2 inch in 45.5 days, then that's 1 inch in 91 days. 91 days x 48 inches is 4368 days, and there's 364 days in a year, that's ... 12 years???"

Twin totality is when both Phobos and Selene are full (every 91 days) but Kondor is confused, those are when the festivals are held...

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

"Twelve years!!!" Kondor exclaims, then uses the palms of his hands to remove his sword from its sheath, before slicing off the nails as carefully as he can. Kondor growls while he works at the sword and his nails.
"Unless this is some illusion, or we were aged magically rather than immobilized for a decade, we've lost too much time. What in blazes happened? And, with our gear destroyed, how are we going to survive in this tundra without proper footgear?!"

Re: The Scorched Sanctuary

Tillak listens to the concversation that Gundrabu and Knodor are having

"12 years??!!! Y'thaqqa's bones! We are truly cursed, brothers! We must escape this pit. At least we have each other's aid and companion ship."

He looks at Kondor. 

"We should find your crown and abscond from this place, quickly." Tillak glances at his war pick and scowls, dolefully. 

"This will not aid me if we encounter those beetles again, brothers."

Kondor will finish with his own nails before helping the others.
