[center [h3 Notes]]

Introduce a few NPC's for sure but use many NPC's of the past if possible.
Fallen King/Althea North Wind

Mention of Neil and Wilhelm for villains as well.

Maybe introduce a major Straus Haven villain but also a helpful ambassador (May use Herron in the end but who knows)

Galath perhaps returns from Burguss.

Fang perhaps a demoted general of some kind from Straus Haven.

Could perhaps meet the other gods/Cerebrum.

Meet the leader of the purist perhaps.

Klaus's revival?

Straus Haven Prime Minister

[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 Arrival]]

With the arrival of the party Haru will be waiting for them.

He'll let them know that many at Lunacia wish to meet them in a few days time.

Emerald Fox will serve as a Strause Haven politician, replacing Herron. She will try to talk to Nari's party.

LV 13

Bandit Encounter

30 CR 1 wolves as bandits. (Wear wolf cloaks)

These are a horde (rolled together/attacker) They can as a bonus action attempt a "Trample" strength save DC 18 or as a group they knock you prone.

(For every 5 that down decrease the DC by 3)
They head of the clan has a magical wolf cloak (Like the helm that gives advantage on initiative) Giving them advantage (Can be taken)

The bandit leader has a dragon's greatsword. (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.

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.

[center [b Other Encounter]]


[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 enounters 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 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.

[h3 Extra Table]
Construction

Random table for places unlisted of who to run into.

1: Alexander

2: Gawain (When gone Lance)

3: Hiroshi (When gone Gwen)

Also have story things happen in these places and don't be afraid to pause if you need more time.
