Two Forks

Leopoldo!
Season 3 - Preseason Mini Ep

Team SSS deal with the fallout from Kodonia, a new companion is introduced and the Team accept a new quest from Darius

Most of Team SSS remain, exhausted, in the house. Sebastian and Mourn decide to meet with Darius in search of answers. After a scuffle in the market, in which Sebastian is robbed and Mourn is caught pickpocketing, they arrive at Darius’ tower. Darius confirms their fears, Savaros is dead. He admits he has made ill use of the Team and suggests a peace offering: a large payment (worth 40 000 gp) for their last mission and a well-paid, easy quest. The pair accept on behalf of Team SSS and are tasked with escorting a diplomat on a peaceful visit to Denemir, a land belonging to elven magic users called “The Blessed”. Darius also requests they take a man named Leopoldo with them, he owes Darius a favour and team SSS is undermanned.

They head to a rowdy bar suggested by Darius and there they meet the larger than life swordsman Leopoldo Lionheart. Their meeting is cut unfortunately short when the team’s occasional companion Vathek starts a bar fight and summarily ends it with a fear spell.

Nevertheless, Leopoldo chooses to accompany Team SSS on their new quest and their path is set. The rest of the day is spent shopping, with one item high on the agenda. Vathek disguises himself as Savaros long enough for a sculptor to sketch him, and longer still to the upset of the party. A statue of Sav is commissioned and the team prepare to leave.

Those Who Walk Away
Season 2 Episode 21

Team SSS charge on the Bone Palace with the freed prisoners and their rebel army. They burst through the doors into the main foyer and face down a group of warriors who gathered to defend the palace. The Team take a fair bit of injury but dispatch their enemies, calling the rebels in behind them.

At this moment, the Team settle on a plan to end the whole fiasco they’ve gotten into. They send the rebels off to clear out the palace and head down below; to where they know the source is hidden. Reasoning that the source both pulls in the essence reavers and maintains Reldon as an immortal sorcerer of infinite power, they decide to destroy it.

Upon entering the room with the source, Gilly, Sebastian, Savaros and Mourn all rush towards the glowing ball of power. Sebastian gets there first and plunges Darius’ conduit crystal into the source, draining it and sending the power to Darius. Savaros sees this beacon of true magical power and sees it fading. Sensing the window for opportunity is closing, he charges into the source and is destroyed.

The others fight to remove the crystal from the source, unwilling to give Darius so much power. After some discussion, they reluctantly agree that there’s nothing else to be done. They allow the entire source to be sent to Darius and make their way out of the palace. They ignore the rebels and the fighting and move on. Some feel defeated but all agree their part is done.

Spirits are low, the Team decide to collect Urist’s body and teleport out of the city. They find Reldon’s corpse in a stable, finally fallen once the source was destroyed. Arrora arrives late to the battle and gets embroiled in a misunderstanding with some rebels who do not recognise the Team. Most of Team SSS run away to spare the rebels with only Arrora choosing to fight. She is overwhelmed but the Team continue to run, too worn out to consider fighting. She escapes and catches up with a broken and remorseless party as they prepare to leave the city.

Apparating to the streets of Two Forks, the Team head home. They’re greeted by Jeremy who aids them in turning Urist’s body into a statue. The team agree to meet Darius and ask whether Savaros was transported to him. Beyond that, the Team appear to be at a loose end.

FREE THE SMOKE BANANA
Season 2 Episode 20

With the success of their recent missions, the start of martial law in Kodonia and unknown assailants attacking their base, Team SSS decide the time for revolution has come.

The plan was simple: Savaros and Mourn would recon the prison where disobedient slaves are “re-educated” and slip inside to open the doors for an attacking party. Mourn wound up hidden inside whilst Savaros returned to the main party.

Meanwhile, Gilly and Sebastian rallied the rebels that the team had armed and trained during their weeks in the city. As evening approached, Reldon attacked the city as a distraction and Gilly led the charge against the prison.

Mourn was unable to open the doors as the guards were alerted when chanting rebels attacked the prison. Nevertheless, the guards were overcome and the prisoners freed. Gilly have a rousing speech and the rebellion was truly underway.

We return to Team SSS sat in the basement discussing plans over breakfast. Their scheming is interrupted by the arrival of two of the people sent by Darius: Vathek and Soren.

Season 2 Episode 18

Regrouping in Reldon’s cave, the team are finally paid by Darius. Darius goes on to inform them that he’s been hoping the team would destabilize Kodonia and is sending more people to help. In the meantime, the team decide to raid a tomb to rearm Gilly before indulging in some actual terrorism.

The foray into tomb raiding is short and sweet with the endless powers of Reldon making light work of dungeoneering. Gilly, Savaros and Mourn then re-enter the city as Caroline Smellyshoes, Snuffy Walden and MARGAROL. As a warrior, Arrora simply walks in.

The team decide to blow up an exclusive club frequented by older warriors. Arrora sneaks in barrels of alcohol under the pretense of bringing gifts to her friends and these are spilled liberally in the club. Savaros then hurls fireballs through the windows and burns the place to the ground. The team make a run for it and regroup at the basement.

Live Free or Die Hard
Season 2 Episode 17

Urist is led from his cell and taken to his trial by combat. Taken to the cages Gilly escaped past, he is pushed into the inner cage. Urist quickly finds a one-on-one battle with an essence reaver to be too much and teleports to the outer cage, heavily injured. In a tense scene, Urist teleports again and makes for the wall ringing the courtyard. Guards fire crossbows and others directly move to stop him but Urist forces his way up the stairs and leaps from the wall. Injured to a point where any other man would be unconscious and dying, Urist stumbles into the city. He is unable to find a quiet place to bandage his wounds and knows he is on his last leg. Cornered on the top of a building, unable to really move without wounding himself further, he defiantly shouts “FREE THE SLAVES” and leaps to his death.

Gilly makes it back into the city and comes across a commotion on her way to the slave base. A dead dwarf lies on the ground and Gilly immediately realises who it is. She informs the others and they head to the prison. Gilly, Savaros and Mourn pretend all be priests of Olidammara and go to claim the body for “burial”. Storing it in a wardrobe full of ice, the team head to Reldon’s cave. Darius awaits them there in a projected form and informs them that payment for the staff is on the way and that freeing Reldon to spark a revolution was his hope all along.

After an assassination attempt fails because the target turns out to be a nice guy, the pair head back to base to wait for the others.

I Pocket The Finger And Move On
Season 2 Episode 15

The remaining members of Team SSS go about the business of resurrecting Gilly. Faced with a cost of 10 000 gold for a resurrection, the Team opts for the cheaper method of using their scroll of reincarnate.

With Gilly (now Rose) back from the dead, Team SSS turned their thoughts to revenge. They sneak into Trodd’s house in the dead of night and Mourn successfully murders a sleeping man, only to find it’s Trodd’s son. Disguising himself as the son, Mourn goes for a second try. Trodd dies but also wakes his wife who quickly sees through the disguise. The Team fight Trodd’s household guard as they flee with Gilly going as far as to use Trodd’s infant children as a shield.

Season 2 Episode 14

Savaros and Mourn find themselves at a loose end in the slave district. Unable to train their drunk companions until the next evening, they drink the night away. The following day they head out shopping for a mask to hide Mourn’s scaled face. After an eventful trip, they catch wind of a duel between a warrior named Trodd and Kodonia’s newest warrior.

Whilst the other two drink, Gilly, Arrora and Urist are invited to a party. Arrora gets blackout drunk but Gilly is able to gather a lot of information about the warriors. They are roughly evenly split into two factions, the traditionalists and the expansionist younger warriors. A man named Trodd bullies the other guests and Gilly intervenes, getting the victim to a carriage home. Urist and Trodd have a scuffle but it escalates when Gilly rejoins them and starts a food fight. Trodd challenges her to a duel.

After a night looking for a place to sleep, an exhausted Gilly heads over to the duel. She soon finds herself outmatched as Trodd repeatedly trips and then hits her with a chain. Frustrated, Gilly rallies by retreating each time she trips and catching Trodd as he charges her. Unfortunately, just as tactic starts to wound him, he unleashes two spells borrowed from a friend and stored in his weapons. Gilly is left frozen on the duelling ground, dead.

Margarol!
Season 2 Episode 13

After meeting publicly in a cafe, Team SSS decide to head to Reldon’s Cave, codenamed Wilson’s Cave for a more private conversation. Wilson’s cave being a popular bar in Kodonia made it easy to talk about meeting there in public, but the less than intelligent Team SSS never know which Wilson’s cave they mean.

Reldon offers to transform Mourn back from being a gnome with a spell that will cycle randomly through races until one is chosen or the spell fizzles out. In typical fashion, Mourn allows the human form to pass in hope of more. The spell dies out, leaving him a troglodyte.

Savaros, Mourn and Urist just manage to re-enter the city, with Mourn forced to magically assume the guise of Margarol: A foreign human fighter who can only say her own name.

Arrora buys a slave in the hopes of infiltrating society and chooses a disgraced former warrior. Gilbert suggests using him as a trainer in a fighting school she intends to start.
