Touring the Iron Kingdoms – Protectorate of Menoth

A special thank-you to Jason Hobbs (ZeeWulf) for sending me a copy of his notes he took during this seminar.  With his and my notes, I reconstructed the seminar.

This entire seminar focused on following a mercenary band as they travelled around Western Immoren doing a job for hire, and discussing the different regions as they went through them.  The first stop on their trip was the Protectorate of Menoth.  This was because their journey started in Icthyr, where they were being hired by a Scrutator to deliver a package to the Northern Crusades.

Lock and Load: Seminars “State of the Faction Address” Part 11: Mercs and Minions

Mercs and Minions were addressed together, so I will be posting them together.  As always, this is in a notes-like format.

  • Good time to be a mercenary
    • Lots of money to be made
    • Unless you care about a particular side
  • Llaelese resistance not too happy about the Protectorate anymore
    • Damiano has come to the aid of the resistance
    • What started as a skirmish with the Protectorate, Terminus crashed the party instead
  • Magnus has been busy making a new army with his new Protege, Julius
    • Julius looks similar to a certain deposed emperor
    • He is apparently very good with a sword
    • Rumor has it Magnus may be linking up with Montador?
  • Blindwater Congregation led by Barnabus
    • Not all the Gators agree with him
    • Those that don’t will die or join up
    • There will be a lot of bloodshed coming, but don’t worry – it will all be for Barnabus’ gain
  • Thornfall alliance is still led by Carver
    • I don’t have a lot of notes on this – not sure if there was much said

And that is it – that is all of them.  Again, I really enjoyed the talks, and hope I can see more of Seacat next year.

Lock and Load: Seminars “State of the Faction Address” Part 10: Legion of Everblight

Today we talk about the upstart dragon Everblight and his followers.  As always, this is in a notes-like format.

  • Legion has been on the run since the beginning
  • Everblight’s enemies are eager to stop them
    • Most of them are looking for a dragon, not for the warlocks
    • Makes it easier to hide in plain sight
  • Pretty much have recovered from the Castle of the Keys events
  • Other dragons have taken serious issue with this
    • Blighterghast was talking about the attack on the Castle
    • Apparently Pyromalfic was part of some alliance against Toruk?
  • Lyllith spotted the Athanc Venethrax was transporting
  • Toruk is Lazy – he could have finished this off long ago if he wanted.

Lock and Load: Seminars “State of the Faction Address” Part 9: Skorne

Today we talk about the slavers of the Skorne empire, and the state of their faction.  As always, this is in a notes-like format.

  • Good time to be Skorne
    • Vinter taught the Skorne to work together
    • Showed them this great verdant land that was available
  • Makeda has brought new weapons and beasts from home
  • Significant ancestors have been pushing for conquest of Ios
  • Lake was reclaimed from the Rabble Trolls
  • Druids were conducting some kind of ceremony
    • Ancestors told Zaal that if the ceremony succeeded, then it would be bad
    • Hexeris has said it didn’t succeed, and he is a totally trustworthy individual

Lock and Load: Seminars “State of the Faction Address” Part 8: Circle Orboros

Today we cover the angry druids of the Circle and their Faction Address.  As in the past, this is a notes-like format.

  • Some internal Strife recently
  • Big goal has been to stop Legion from existing
    • Dragons are tenacious
    • May have made a minor mistake attempting to assassinate Madrak, but that Druid is dead now, so water under the bridge
  • Kreuger is doing his own thing, as usual
    • Did not attend his own trial
    • He was convicted, and an assassin had attempted to kill him – failed fortunately
    • Wurmwood had him acquitted, said he was the “Harbinger of the Apocalypse”
  • Baldur was temporarily dead – but he got better!
    • His ceremony was to stop Venethrax
    • The plan was to stop Legion from getting to him
    • Collapse the tunnel, to push him to the surface, where others could potentially get the Athanc other than Legion
    • Previous attempts at this had failed
