Quest for the Staff of Genesis: Game Day 4-11-09 pt. 1
The party had just defeated a whole slew of Orcs and Goblins when we last checked in on them. As the party began construction on the massive temple Tiakara’s gods demanded of her, the Mayor of the nearby town of Egami, Juan Valdez approached the party. He and his entourage wanted to know who was responsible for the incredibly large explosion. The party told him that it was Tiakara worshipping her gods. Mayor Valdez thanked us for defeating the Orcs and Goblins that had been plaguing the town for years.
Before they could accept his thanks Mayor Valdez went on to explain that although the townsfolk were happy about the defeat of the fiends, the explosion had in fact leveled most of the town, including both taverns, the orphanage, the brothel, the school, the hospital, many homes and most importantly (to the mayor at least) the mayor’s residence/City Hall. Not only that but the creation of Fairy Cannon Cove flooded the coffee fields and rewoke Mountain Du.
The Lawful/Good members of the party felt the obligation to stay and repair the damage they caused. They first started by replanting the coffee fields. Nevets and Aria’s dragon, Argentum, began digging out a canal for irrigation purposes, the rest of the party except for Rididdlthumb began rebuilding the town.
Rididdlthumb was being tested by his god, unbeknownst to the rest of the party. Nevets was trying to figure out how to speed up the digging process when an idea struck him, if only he had access to Dust of the Purple Sage like his bowstring was coated with. While he was thinking about how to get more a strange women came up, addressed him by name and handed him a bag. Inside the bag was more than enough rope saturated in Dust of the Purple Fairies to accomplish the job. After he surveyed the best location for it, Nevets asked Argentum to gouge the path for the canal. Meanwhile, Rididdlethumb was still being tested, he later told the party he was in a never ending box maze.
Nevets placed his D.o.t.P.F. encrusted rope in the path and sent Argentum back to the town to warn the folks about the upcoming boom. Argentum took flight, Nevets cocked his bow and let an arrow fly at the cord. The cord went up, the canal was finished and Egami’s coffee crop was restored. Nevets marveled at the usefulness of his Purple Dust Encrusted Threaded Cord, deciding that was too long a name he shortened it to Purple D.E.T. Cord and rode his bear back to town. Rididdlethumb continued to fail his test of the gods.
While Rididdlethumb continued his test, Nevets and the rest of the party rebuilt the orphanage. Still being tested, they rebuilt the hospital, the taverns, the hospital. Rididdlethumb continued to fail his test, the party built a new university for the town and named it after the Mayor’s mule, Wyzass. Nevets being a lawfully/good cleric refused to rebuild the brothel, he built an insurance office instead. The Mayor decided to run the brothel out of the back of the insurance office.
