Father and my siblings recently came to Daggermark to see my new project, the casino Xhanadu. They all seemed a bit unimpressed by the opulence of the place, but quickly masked their feelings as we all moved into a private dining area to enjoy a lovely meal. It was here that Father told us of a plan to truly find out what was going on in the world, but it meant that we would need to gain access to a very rare commodity, a Sun Orchid, or the sun orchid elixir. It was with this that Hailan came forward and told us of a shipment from Razmiran to Ullorth Ungin, ruler of Tymon (a small hold that is on the western boarder of the River Kingdoms).
We spent a great deal of time talking about this, as it seemed a much easier method of collecting the orchid then trying to buy it or steal it from the producers of the elixir, though I may see about stealing the recipe at a later date. The political fallout from such an attempt would be catastrophic to say the least, as the most powerful and wealthy individuals in the world spent fortunes each year in an attempt to secure more of the elixir for themselves. So we chose the easy way, talking to Ullorth.
We made our way slowly across the River Kingdoms to Tymon, I must say that I have not been in a condition to travel for a time and this was putting me in a bit of a mood, but Ari saw to my needs wonderfully. Once we arrived at Tymon, the name of both the country and the capital of the province, we were directed toward Ullorth. We spoke with him for a short time, discussing various things, but I finally broached the subject and with all honesty told him why we were here, to gain possession of the sun orchid, and as such we were ready to offer him an alternative if he allowed us to have the item. He was hesitant at first but we eventually came to an accord, we would steal the item in transit, so he would not have to uphold his end of the bargain with Razmiran, and we would reincarnate him when his time finally came. After we had made the deal we started to speculate as to the actual age of Ullorth, as he knew a great deal more about reincarnation then any gladiator should, so we set about asking questions to those people who had the most contact or experience in the village. As we suspected it seems that he has been ruler here for a lot longer than a single lifetime.
But not wanting to back out of our deal we did what we came to do. We set out and met the Razmiran contingent upon the road. I passed a signal to the Tymon guards to avoid attacking us when we assaulted the caravan, unfortunately I was not as subtle as I had hoped, leading to a conflict later that night when we attempted to steal the elixir. When we approached the priest called out at the slight sound we made upon entering the parameter of their camp. The Razmiran guards formed ranks and the high priest summoned a creature out of the abyss to attack us. We quickly went to work assaulting the creature, while Lor’Athorn and Palanon unleashed magical attacks on the group of paladins. Navarre was grabbed by the creature, and only with luck were we able to break him free before he was crushed in the creatures grip.
Slipping around behind some tents, I made my way past the paladins guarding the priest, and landed a blow that staggered him long enough for Coreena to take a precise aim and finish off the leader. After that it was relatively easy for us to eliminate the remaining guards, and free the Tymon escort.
We received the elixir and father has given his word to reincarnate Ulloth once his time arrives. We have given the elixir to Phos and I hope that he is quick with his discovery, as I will have need of him soon for a special project.
