[center [b Luna's Reflections Theater]] Luna, the Lunar god lost from the planet Spiral now to the stars. Meet second lonely sorrowsworn candiate here. (Theater guy/Senku Amarillia) Vera Vectna is here working on a theory, he is talking of the veil and the theory of Ruination that other timelines and worlds must have learned this. He even summoned a small creature once that talked of a realm once "Fractured" (Easter egg of Fractum but at the same time hints of Ruination) the world already. He talks of Aravandor the land of elves and celestials (He's been once but will attempt to lie) He talks about the reflection of Shadow and Fey to the material that the landmarks of our world exist.. In that world. The great Lunacia mountain has a unique connection to both worlds so does Straus Haven. The theatre talks of Luna and Cerebrum once being star crossed lovers his ambition had caused him to reach for the moons. (This is not lore but speculations and such of artist and scholars. The Lunar Tear tale) Luna was a god above the world on a cold dark rock, Cerebrum with unbridled ambition the desire to learn and to obtain wanted to reach and understand her. Although Cerebrum was supposedly just a man once upon a time. In his ambition he had taken down the god of ambition "Shroud Veil" taking that divines part or becoming one with him. Though Shroud found a kindred spirit in Cerebrum as he had only done so for one thing. To find Luna, and find her he had with his newfound divinity. He came to understand her, and with understanding breeds familiarty. The two were star crossed lovers but.. Spiral was now missing one of it's divine seats one he must fill. His ambition now paid a price and she told him to return. The ambition in his heart hated the council of divines that humanity needed the gods to fell the beast of darkness. That he wanted Luna and her alone, it was his right and his ambition he wanted to explore the universe beside her. She had convinced him to head down, her lunar tears both bright and damning had caused that cold dark rock that she watched over.. To shine bright. The love had given form to moonlight, a light to fight the creatures of darkness. (This fixed the veil of Shadowfell to Spiral) Some of this is true (Secret) but in much different terms Though crushed by the loss and love of ambition and passion his intellect matched only by his unbridled ambition. He had tore this essence out, creating a god of ambition to love Luna.. So that he may be the true god of Logic and Reason. [center [b Breads and Bites Bakery]] Ethan is here.

May have Theo be a Shinobi [center [h3 Events]] Try to list "Events" that can be trigger in multiple ways as the story does not stagnate. [center [h3 Theo Event]] This will be a starting event, and can certainly be triggered in a number of ways. Once he meets the party he will try and stalk and wait till they are alone or separate. (Roll for his stealth of course) [center [h3 Mountain Pass/Giant Event]] Giants have political meetings with Alexander.

(Half red Dragon veteran stat block but is actually a dwarf. The sword greatsword stat wise (Allow the half red dragon statblock 3 swings instead of 2) He can instead use his attack action to do 7D6 fire damage DEX save DC15 or halved. 15 foot cone. Wielding the sword in both hands also gives fire resistance (sword has no plus modifiers however) They can obtain the greatsword. Tactics One of his crowd will use help action on somebody (Just 1) and he gets advantage the first swing. They will always use bonus action to trample someone down as well. (Or try to) causing them to traven pretty close to him to maximize damage. Items: Wolf Cloak (Advantage on initiative basically helm of awareness Gold: 10000 EXP: 4000 Investigation: DC: 18 Able to find medals and papers on his person, these medals hold some sort of importance and seem strange on a common thug. History DC 18: Gain the medal's knowledge and his name, as one of Tydal's titan trio Though he was only ranked 3 in the "Titans" Persuasion: DC 20 Init made DC 18: The leader whom goes by "Wolf Jawbreaker" is a dwarf who believed in Tydal Everfury's command, He had once slain a dragon beside Tydal Everfury thus the blade. If convinced he will tell them they could not take over the mountain as the blasted Frost Giants have taken it. There are 50 of them in total with the council of 7 leading them. Alexander is attempting peace with them in conquest but Tydal had always competed with the frost giants as they love to war and to battle it is in their blood. Arcana: 18 The fiery blade seems to have elemental energy.. Similar to that of a fey. Something like Kirai's summer flames but amplified. Giant Encounter LV 13 Can fight either the cheif in a 1v1 or fight the council of seven with six of you (If reinforcements brought) CR 8 Frost Giant EXP: 4500 Gold: 2000 Items: Gain a badge that allows them pass through the mountains No investigation required honor bound they will answer the parties questions Knowledge: Their king was slain by the second titan a man with a large glaive.

They were prepping to fight this man but instead here the party was. [center [h3 Chikai Encounter]] LV 13-14 LV: 17 Assassin (Has helm of awareness) Will try to stealth on the party. Uses two Assassin monster Manuel minions. (6 People allowed for the fight) [center [b Garen Steelblood Encounter]] LV 14 Have two CR 5 Gladiators Gold: 2000 EXP: 2000 Investigation: Had notes to fight Alexander, was told by a false source that the party was assassins to kill him. [center [b Sorrow Sworn Encounter]] Creed and Fallen King will give them a brief glimpse of the Shadowfell. (Banish on the party, Charisma DC 20 can fail on purpose to help friends.) Can hear singing and such in the shadowfell but source is hard to find. LV 14 2 Lonely sorrowsworn and 1 angry [center [b Creed Encounter]] LV 14 Will change the alter to summon a being in fight (causing it to become dark). False Hydra splitting the party into two fights! Alexander and his crew will handle fanatics charging in. Jaune Flurry will fight alongside Creed! (LV 10 lance fighter) After they are defeated he'll sacrifice his life (Against Creeds wishes) to make him stronger! (Fully healing him and giving him 3 legendary resistances and 3 legendary actions a round his sneak damage swings are free and now necrotic damage) This fight is at the end of the Ruins. This is Creeds last stand. Investigation: DC 20 and Arcana 20. Encrypted but he has correspondence with someone.. The true emperor of Straus Haven? This is where of course Cerebrum comes to take Shroud Veil (Who's Merged with Creed) and takes Cerebrum back. Creed's Soul will be taken by the Fallen King. [center [b Fallen King Encounter]] LV 15 (But really balance for LV 16 as it'll be a single encounter and party is just strong) Arch Lich Vecna but give him 400HP and 22AC instead and that is all to change. Also change his type from undead to Fey [h3 Story Arc 4] This is by no means a railroad of sorts but more so a way to better organize what I'd imagine to happen here. Of course as in the past player choices can affect things greatly. Upon arrival they meet with Theo/Haru/Hiroshi and are told of a meeting in a few days. Possibly spending time in Kanra Perhaps doing the sidequest for the Wyvern egg but hopefully learning of the bandits in the mountain pass. Which are really lead by Wolf Jawbreaker (A dwarf that was number two for Tyday's Titan 3.) Eventually learning Garen is number two however number one is missing. Learning that Theo is really a double agent, a fallen shinobi working for the purist now. Creed is stealing materials and such from Vera and has a double agent in Straus. (Theo does not now but Yume Hanabi is that double agent) Theo will have papers to eliminate Adrian and the other loyalist to Hiroshi. They see Adrian as a threat. However Theo was deterimined to ask Adrian to join his side instead as written in personal notes and that other fallen Shinobi have the same plan. "Yume" though highly secret is Straus revived by stealing one of Eve's feathers. This had happened due to her time in the Feywild. Yume is the true leader of the purist allowing Creed to take the title for now as to hide. Yume will pretend he is from Sumia who decided to serve the new empire. He however holds a grudge to Gawain and will not allow there duel go unremembered. When Gawain leaves to Sumia he too will try and leave Terra. (Likely for Veil's party to deal with) Vera Vectna will be working hard, sharing his knowledge with his colleage Yume (He has no clue) His obsession with the Shadowveil is great and when Yume talks of going to Sumia he will wish to follow. Vera will stay in the arc a little longer however as he wishes to figure out the irregularity in Terra. Though on different sides he's afraid what he's reading can lead to Spiral's Ruination. (Explain Ruination and Ruination points) that the world is close to gaining it's first ruination. He knows the Shadowfell being cracked had caused some of it. However.. He had used the shadowfell's power to increase Spiral's Veil against Ruination. (This creation is Veil) Vera will take quite the interest in the main party he will talk to Stephan (Before Stephan decides to head back to Sumia to check on Veil) and apologize to them all for how Neil turned out. Jaune Flurry is also a purist in hiding. (Working for Straus) Vera will slowly learn what the purist are up to, that this fallen king is also working with them but he isn't sure why. Creed is trying to use the Fey King to create the old empire, using it's power and it's sorrow to fuel his power. He says that Vera is a coward so slow with his research, that even the gods themselves won't be able to stop Spiral's Ruination. That he they need the carnal power of the Shadowfell to stop this ruination. "All energy is dangerous unless properly harnessed" After Creed is defeated alongside with Jaune at the ritual side. Jaune will surprise even Creed by sacrificing his body and his essence to finish the ritual. For Creed to become Shroudveil's vessal. However Vera will come with a gadget (Worked on with the party and together perhaps) to weaken the bond. So that he cannot become a true god. Still half divine Shroudfell is tied to him. After slaying him, Cerebrum will use Evie's blood to create a meeting. One where he takes back Shroudfell but decides his ambitions will be kept in check by reason and logic. That he cannot loose such a being again. That they had weakned it for such a thing to be possible. Listing encounters important to the arc. Chikai Encounter (Will happen after the other LV 13 encounters and pushes the party to LV 14) Sorrowsworn encounter. Creed Encounter Fallen King encounter. [center [h3 Story Notes]] Straus Haven has continued there psionics research and their descent into the Shadowfell. Using both agents and fallen shinobi to discover the Raven Queen of Shadowfell has been slain by a mysterious force. Though she was chaotic in nature she had kept the place to some level of balance. The nightstalker had used her inner court against her (Won't say this out loud) Arvandor land of the world tree, though every plane has some connection to the world tree. Knows the Shadowfell or rather the Raven Queen had almost build a planer bridge to Arvandor through their connection to the world tree. Also visiting the land of the Fey. Arvandor is visited by Spiral's gods. The party will not be aware of this however, though Herron will know at least.. Some of this. The woman he had cared for in Starkwood, Teresa Goldmary, she had been lost in the Fey Wild. A fact he had left out in his tale with Ayame. Though he may tell her in time, due to the Shadowfells corruption, cause of the fallenking Teresa's freedom in the Feywild caused her to become a sorrowsworn. This of course caused Herron to give chase to her. However, he knew that entering the Shadowfell would create a Nightstalker to replace him in this plane. He had sought out the head of research development, Vera Vicktor, he had two assistants at the time. Stephan and Neil gremory. Neil always proving the explorer while Stephan was the superior scholar. Herron knew he could count on these three, at least.. He thought he could. This was before the Greatwar itself and this had caused Vera and Straus the obsession to the Shadowfell they have now. With much research and deliberation they found a way to fracture Herron's soul into two. His entering the Shadowfell hadn't caused a Shadowstalker to born as it wasn't a full person though it had created the first crack within the Shadowfell. The crack that was used for Shroudveil to corrupt the "Kind" Fey king of sorts. Herron had met "Stalker" the two had done battle but Herron was outmatched without his party. Though he could do massive damage he knew fighting longer was risky. He was able to outmaneuver and avoid the large beast only to find that Teresa became a Sorrowsworn.. The lonely. Her freedom had caused her.. To be lonely the revelation had destroyed Herron. He never wanted to restore his soul after the matter never to feel the full weight of what he had lost. The stalker was set.. On turning Herron into the anger sorrowsworn but he managed to instead escape. He said he would free Teresa but he could not risk disturbing the Shadowfell's laws and cause a further crack. He will feel resposible for Veil's current predicament as he caused Vera's obsession with harnessing the Shadowfell. When Herron opened that portal the surge of energy and power.. Gave Vera proper use of his leg for a moment. [center [h3 Extra Important Notes]] Maybe use Emerld Silverfox as a red herring as she has an interest in Chikai's investigation and was once a shinobi. (She knew Adrian once) Chikai will try to talk to the party alone, sharing the sins that Hiroshi had growing up. That he had planned for Cereluen and Gawain to cut down a child. Chikai had followed Hiroshi's path of blood so they can create unity. That Hiroshi turning his back on the Shinobi's bloody path is disgraceful and the purist are the worlds last line of defense. That he was wrong to want Straus Haven dead. The Fallen King/Fey events will happen around Kaida as well. His patron had been forced to merge with the Fallen King. Also ruins dungeon.
