# Adventure Date Events
1 Doomcape exploration (part5) 02-15-2013 The rite performed by Beatrice Erisdotr sent the party to the realm (???). To the noon of the 3rd day of the siege that is.
2 Doomcape Exploration (Darnten Siege, part 1) 02/18/2013 Both Brandorf's and Fenrir's demises were averted while the treachery of Arnatis' became clear.
3 Doomcape Exploration (Darnten Siege, part 2) 02-19-2013 Kimonto decimated one siege squad in her alter-ego of Sefi.
4 Doomcape Exploration (Darnten Siege, part 3) 02/22/2013 Most of the party reunited and from now on sought to help the castle's defenders by returning the flow of magical power to the citadel's arcane defenses.
5 Doomcape Exploration (Darntem Siege, part 4) 02/23/2013 A grant skirmish ensured between the party and a grand siege team led by Arthur Uhsbane. The result is still to be determined…
6 Doomcape Exploration (Darntem Siege, part 5) 03/02/2013 A 'reality shift' occurred during the aforementioned encounter warping the party to what appeared to be a nightmare-inducing equivalent of the realm they were inhabiting previously. Fortunately the team was able to return back (to the beginning of the third day of the Siege) after helping someone vaguely resembling Khain Firemane there. The team then found themselves back though during the morning of the third day of the siege, in the giant sinking-fortress' dungeon which allowed them to overhear a rather foreboding conversation between Idrian and Arthur Uhsbane. The blackguard was defeated, Khain met and 'recruited' again shortly before the team proceeded with entering a strange portal which formed after uttering the very same poem as the one recited by Arethe at one point.
7 Doomcape Exploration (Darntem siege, part6) 03/09/2013 The party temporarily disconnected themselves from their 'alter-egos' during their venture through a strange tunnel formed during the teleportation… only to be ushered few moments later to move onward as the realm started collapsing… imprints of some terrible presents started filling it. The team managed to reach the gate at the end and found themselves inside the Castle Darnten where they conversed with the citadel's overlord, Lord Lartahrl. In the end the party was bestowed with the task of parleying with the giant mercenaries allied with the Duke of Death as Brandorf's heritage would allow for such attempt to happen in the first place.
8 Doomcape Exploration (Darnten Siege, part7) 03-16-2013 In order to for the negotiations with the giants to be initiated in the first place… the party had to prepare a suitable offering (that being of a 'beast' at least as large as a giant in this case). It didn't take long for the sensitive nose of Frozt's/Fenrir's to find the trail of such, however the beast in question was acting abnormally… its very nature was likewise unusual (to say it lightly). Seren/Ryo managed to determine that the gray render (which was captured thanks to Kimonto's … foxification prowess) exhibited traits of being… distilled from someone's mind ? Later the team proceeded with the ritualized negotiations with the giants they've found south-east of the castle. A series of duels of wills ensured which were followed by actual (if not exactly mortal) combat. At the end of the day the heroes found themselves victorious, the giants could be now counted among their allies.
9 Doomcape Exploration (Darnten Siege, final ?) 03/23/2013 The party was relegated to the defense of Caslte Darnten's central leyline. In spite of edge initially possessed by the Zarthian shocktroopers it was the party who emerged victorious from the skirmish, forcing the commando to retreat seeing that the Beast of the South already made its move…
10 Doomcape Exploration (epilogue) 03-24-2012 After delivering the one who later turned out to be the Beast of the South to the Azure Savant equivalent party finally left the dreamscape of a plane… a vision of possibility…of a 'what if' scenario for the events of the past. Still just a vision… which did not leave a single participant unchanged in one way or another.
11 Elemental Contemplation 06/28/2013 Events of the siege were mentioned by Atton.
