QUESTS & PARTY GOALS
The various long-term tasks the party has been asked to complete.
Rescue (& cure) Kyone COMPLETED
The party succeeded in rescuing the half-drow, half-eladrin wizard Kyone, who was then infected by Lolth’s power. Fortunately, the party was able to help the Popess of Light banish the Spider Queen’s energy, making Kyone into a valuable ally.
Revive the World Tree
The ghost of the dryad of one of the first trees ever asked you to wake her tree up for her. The tree has been petrified since the time of the Dawn War, though, so options are kind of limited on this one. Praxis/Lisa did take a shaving of the tree, though, in the hopes of doing something with it.
Deliver the Bodies of Dead Soldiers
The party took on the responsibility of delivering the bodies of dead soldiers to their homes throughout the realms. The list of bodies is here.
Help Out Mother Yew
Mother Yew, a druid in the Ionian town of Oakenfold, has sent two messages to the party, requesting their help on “a delicate matter of great import”. She says that the need is somewhat pressing, but the meaning of that is hard to determine, given her somewhat slowed tree-person perception of time.
Different world-wide unknown quantities that have plagued sages for ages. Chances are you won’t ever discover the details behind all of these… but maybe you could learn 1 or 2…
What Was the Great Cataclysm?
The world-changing event happened about 1000 years ago, and people are still debating what, exactly, happened between Arkhosia & Bael Turoth. Whatever it was, it was enough to destroy the two nations, alter the reality of the weave of magic across the world, and send echoes into every nearby dimension as well.
What’s Up With the Warforged?
The strangely ensouled automatons known as “”/campaign/joelastowski/wikis/warforged" class=“wiki-page-link”> Warforged" are said to fall from the sky, though none seem to have any memories of where they came from. They often have body parts suited to particular tasks, and take up occupations related to what they seem built to do.
UPDATE1: The PC wizard Karath was researching this topic as his thesis to graduate from the Arch Magirium. He did some research into the body of the de-souled Mecha Unit Delta, but didn’t get very far, other than noting that a dragon statue placed inside the torso altered shape to become more serpentine. Before he lost his own soul, Karath also mentioned that there was another student from the school somewhere in the Prime Material Plane researching the same topic.
Who Are the Lords of Waterdeep?
The twelve individuals who control the government in Waterdeep keep their identities secret, hidden behind masks. The one open lord is known to all, but the rest are rumors… though the party has learned the identity of 4 others in addition to the Open Lord…
Piergeron Paladinson III: Human male, the Open Lord. Known to the general public as a Lord of Waterdeep.
Khelben “Blackstaff” Ahroun: Human male, Archmage of the city
Lady Azalea Moonbow: Elf female, Founder of Harpers & girls’ school headmistress
Marius Commonman: Halfelf male, passionate anti-government speaker
Elanna Mirtdaughter: Deva female, fmr assistant to Mirt.
Who is the Elder Elemental Eye?
Many cultists will draw power from an entity known as the Elder Elemental Eye, but few (if any) know what this being actually is. Is it a primordial? a god? an Outsider? a fey lord? a demon? a different being wearing a false face? a collective hallucination? The world may never know.
What Ever Happened to King Ironhammer & His Army?
Around 880 AC, the dwarven king of Ionia and a huge army marched on the undead nation of Atramor to the west, and COMPLETELY DISAPEARED. Though that was over 100 years ago, there are still dwarves in Ionia who look to the west and the return of their lost king. Did they become undead? Did they all die? Were they teleported elsewhere? Are they connected to stories of the “Phantom Brigade” seen marching at night through the Nentir Vale? What about the undead army they marched against? Both armies seem to have disappeared, and no one seems to know what happened, though there are plenty of folks willing to offer theories.
