Guild Renown Rules and Information.

Into The Lair

Xantcha has translated this captured message:

"Ogga angry!
Ogga want bone people from pink skins!
Get bone people from pink skins!
Ogga want doomstaff.
Get staff from cygl'ghax's eyes before pink skins."

This brings us a number of difficult problems. We cannot allow the goblins to capture the Doomstaff and it's magics, nor can we allow the goblins to capture the control circlets that we fought so hard to acquire. This is compounded by our losses early in the campaign; we cannot field the numbers to fight the goblins on multiple fronts. Instead we shall be going in force to capture the Doomstaff with control circlets and skeletons in tow.

The location of Cygl'ghax's lair is known to be a cave system between Pegasus Valley and Gryphon's Aerie. Scouts have been dispatched to find the exact location for a surprise assault on the lair before the goblins can locate it and before Cygl'ghax can dig in even deeper. Let us hope that we can retrieve the staff without directly facing the mad eye tyrant, Cygl'ghax. The losses suffered by such an encounter may be more than we can bear.

This one amazing thing can make your weapons stronger than ever!

We have made a breakthrough while researching the "Force Wall"

An old magic in Pegasus Valley's archives combined with ***REDACTED*** can be used to enhance a weapon, as long as that weapon is of high enough quality. The ritual can only be applied to freshly forged weapons; It can not have been used yet on the field of battle as even the smallest nick in the blade spoils the entire process.

Preparing this ritual is very time consuming and expensive, so we can only use it in a limited fashion. Due to the expense and chance of failure on lower quality weapons, we will be holding a competition to determine which weapons are worthy of this enhancement. One weapon on October 18th and one on October 25th will be selected for the ritual. All weapon types are eligible.

10/11 War Report

Research continues on Talifer's "Force Wall" barrier, unfortunately several key elements required by the ritual were destroyed during the previous goblin attack. It is unknown at this time if the barrier to surround the duchy can be completed.

I dispatched the legion to recover ancient magics to use in defense of the duchy. Two control circlets were captured along with some monstrous undead things. These undead will bolster our ranks against the sheer numbers of goblins that have been encroaching upon our great land.

Once we have captured more magics, we will take this fight to the fell beasts and rid the lands of their kind forever.

Long live the duchy!

2. Guild masters are not always available for testing.

* Look the Part
As the monarch, I will only be granting Look the Part for any people wearing full garb.
That means nothing obviously modern at a distance should be visible.

** A motion was made to excuse officers for attending Maize Maze, which passed
** A motion was made to excuse Belthil for attending Dragonspine Crown Qualifications, which passed.
** Shadydeal brought up that you should not hit people while they are talking to a reeve. So please don't do this.
** Belthil brought up a 3 strikes policy for complaints of people or their weapons hitting too hard.
If you cannot resolve an issue with the player you are fighting, let Belthil know so he can deal with it.

10/4 War Report

We received reports of another frontier keep attack. These goblins were supplied with a large amount of explosives made by unknown suppliers in Pegasus Valley. They attempted to explode the barricades of the keep, but were quickly thwarted. Due to this unknown treachery, and the insecurity of our borders, Legate Glenalth has instituted martial law, effective immediately. An active curfew at sundown in now in place. I will be aiding Prefect Belthil and Xantcha in enforcing this curfew, with a contingent of summoned creatures, watchful drones, and the reports of our good populace.

Last night we had an outbreak of guild warfare, but it was swiftly quelled, and many of these offenders were caught and jailed. However, a small group evaded our grasp and made off with contraband and guild property. This criminal activity and infighting within our city will not be tolerated. We must all do our part to be strong and keep our populace safe by reporting law-breakers and obeying the law.

9/27 War Report

Previously our forces were routed when sent to clear out some farmlands and other outlying areas of monsters.
Some troops and supplies were left behind enemy lines and needed to be retrieved, including the court wizard, Talifer.

After gathering fresh troops and letting the monsters disperse a bit, Duchy forces attempted a rescue. All of the supplies were recovered. However during her escape, Talifer was forced to reveal our plans to convert the Shield of Reflection into a "force wall" that would keep the nasty beasts out of our great Duchy forever.

The goblins sprang into action, staging a hasty attack against the nearby keep where the supplies and the shield were moved. Luckily Talifer arrived before the attack to muster forces and begin the ritual to convert the shield.
The goblins pressed the attack and took the keep, killing most of the defenders and stopping the ritual. Fortunately Squirrel managed to grab the shield and escape.

Making Swords at the Park 9/27

In ten years of playing this game, ya boy has made close to infinity swords. I'd like to share what I've learned throughout this time with you all this Saturday before the park (11am). If anyone needs to rebuild their stuff please bring your materials out and join me.
