Everto de Ivalice Redux

Second session summary
summary of events in second session

setting: spring court and Goug Machine City

Main Story:

After killing the ‘Oni’ met with Alistair and a scholar. The scholar pointed out that the Oni was not like the real historical Oni, which were driven to extinction 100 years ago, but like ones from the ‘Oni Chronicles’ a popular work of fiction in Ivalice. Alsitair asked the party to help him to investigate and keep this under wraps until they can figure out what is going on.

He suggested that the party go to Goug Machine City to meet with the Vizier who is the leader of an ancient race of spiders who live near the city. He is also trying to arrange a meeting between the party and the Lucavi.

The party notices anti-Nihonese sentiment in Lessallia, and very strong sentiments in Goug. There have been reports in Goug of attacks by Oni on civilians in both the city and surrounding villages. There are also reports of attacks by spiders and mounting anti-spider sentiment.

The party also infiltrated a rally of the Ivalician Patriots. To do this Rachel and Cynthia had to give speeches at the rally. The party magnaged to get invited to an after party for the rally and ask if anyone knew about the source of the Oni, they appeared not to.

Personal Stories:

Bloom:

Sent on a special assignment to keep thigns calm in Lesallia, did not go with the party to Goug.

Eiodh:

Avoided going through the crossing on the way to Goug.

Rachel:

Met Alanzo in his room and was told to leave, he is still very angry with her. Discovered that Ezekiel is having her followed. Got information from Ivalivian Patriots which may be useful for the Sons of Omdalia.

Cynthia:

Got a message from Julianna that she had killed her brother in a duel, and that she is coming to Goug in 3 days to fight her.

post events for first session
events that we did not have time to discuss

As I mentioned, after the fight Alistair reveled that this “Oni” appeared to not be like the real historical Oni, but like the ones from a popular work of fiction, the “Oni Cronicles” I didn’t really explain how this happened though.

When Alistair arrives he sees the dead “Oni” and gets a servent to fetch a Nihonese scholar he knows. The scholar examines the body and shows that it is like an Oni from the “Oni Chronicles”, not like the real Oni which were driven to extinction over 100 years ago. The Oni Chronicles is a popular work of fiction which is read mos comonly in Ivalice, although it is a work of fiction it is written as a historical account and many undecuated people think that it is actually true.

The scholar compares this book to Nihonese millitary records, and bases his conclusions on several facts:

1) The “Oni” lookes exactly like one pictured in the Oni Chrincles, but does not match the sketches in the records.

2) The Oni breathed through holes in their sides, like insects do. Thsi creature however has lungs ( he has a preserved sample of an Oni breathing organ to show you for comparison)

3) If you mention that it spoke to you, he will tell you that the historical Oni were never able to speak. Unlike the ones in the book which did.

After this, Alistair suggests that this should be kept quit until you figure out what is going on, and offers to sponsor you (the party) to go figure this out.

We will start the second session here, you will have a chance to ask both Alistiar and the scholar any questions you want…

First session summary
what happened in the first session

Setting: Spring Court

Main Story:

On the third day of Spring Court the sun was blacked out. No one could figure out the cause. From the parties own knowledge and from talking from powerful mages you managed to pretty much eliminate conventional magic as a cause. While waiting to meet with Alistair you encountered an insectoid creature which said on loop: “We are the Oni of Nihon we have blacked out the son, we are many, we will never stop”. You killed it.

Personal:

Eilidh: Confronted Geofrey about technology, he blew her off and pretended not to know her. Acted generally angry about the world during the eclipse. Earned some money for musical performance.

Artha:
Fate: 1
Persona: 1

Bloom: Earned a lot of money for musical performance. Caught the eye of Nikolas Metaxes.

Artha:
Fate: 1
Persona:1

Artha:

Persona: 1

Cynthia: Earned money gambleing. Made Julianna look bad.

Artha:

We start this Friday!

Hi All, I don’t know if anyone actually reads these posts, but we will be starting the game on Friday. If you don’t have your charactor all the way done that is ok, we will star the session by finishing everyones charactor sheet and going over basic game mechaincs etc… including some custom modfications I have made. Don’t worry, I will keep it pretty simple, I think most of us care more about the story than rules anyway.

Added more characters

I have added more charaters, this still isn’t the full set of character pages I hope to have up by the time we start. Most of the things I have put in are not set in stone, and if you want to take over one of these charaters as a player (within reason) just ask. Also if you have an idea for how one of your characters could be connected to one of them let me know, if this requires me to change one of these charactors, that would probably be fine, again within reason.

Obsidian portal page being made

Hi guys,

I am still working on the webpage for the campaign, but feel free to explore the (incomplete) page. Mostly what is left to do is to create charactor pages. If you have an NPC who is strongly related to your backstory I will give you the option of writing their charcter page yourself (subject to my approval of course). I will probably not create a charactor page for every noble listed on the family trees, only the important ones. However if you want one to be involved in your story, let me know and I will write one. You are also welcome to choose to be one of these characters if you have a backstory which fits them. I can also add to the family trees if you want to be part of a family but there isn’t a character which works for you.

Cheers,

Nick

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
