(Session began January 4, 10PM)
Teri contacted Dragonfly, to arrange the meeting with the Fae Smiths, scheduling it for the next day, at noon. They agreed to meet the group at the Shop Around the Corner
at noon on Jan 5.
Telloria and Alex went to the Golden Dragon
to meet with Jenny Chang
and Hope Wolfrunner
while Doug returned to Heaven to speak with Michael.
Returning to Heaven, via the tether at the USS Intrepid Museum
, Doug requested a meeting with his superior. Doug filled Michael in on the group’s plan to deal with The Archangel. He also brought up Inarra Carter
and requested permission to recruit her and her demonic allies for the final conflict, and to recruit her specifically for a ‘higher station’. He was given permission for both, Michael implying that he would not be upset should something happen to the demons during the conflict.
Arriving at the Golden dragon at 10:30PM, Telloria and Alex entered and asked to speak with Jenny and Hope, with Hope being the Hostess, Alex ordering 2 orders of cheese wontons and an order of veggie lo mein. Hope then contacted Jenny on the phone and requested she join them. Jenny joined them and they got a table to talk. Alex and Telloria tried to recruit the two for The Final Battle. Alex also offered to whore Doug out to Jenny and Hope for Cheese Wontons.
Prior to the meeting with the Fae smiths, several of the group decided to try to discover more information and assistance for dealing with Jothe and Surtur to obtain their hearts. It occurred to Noonien that a mercenary army from The Realm (the D&D Realm in The NeverNever) could recruit if needed And discovering that the forces of both Jotun were at war, while Janice knew of two Nordic heroes she had once guided to Valhalla who claimed to have infiltrated the fortresses of both Jotun Kings. Alex was able to deduce better Ways to get to the Castle’s.
The group reunited at The Shop Around the corner at 11:30 and shared information. At noon, the two smiths arrived, sitting opposite of one another. Negotiations ensued between the smiths and the group. Noonien suggested possible payment for their services from the Frost and Fire Giants. The Winter smith requested the group acquire the Blingdenstones form Jothe’s treasury, while the Summer Smith wanted the Dragons Egg Ruby from Surtur’s Treasury. This was agreed as acceptable. Delivery was arranged for two weeks to the group’s warehouse.
Janice contacted Monoc Securities and arranged to meet Bors and Grigori, the einherjar that she had escorted to Valhalla, who had broken into the two Jotun fortresses. A meeting was arranged for the next afternoon.
Teri volunteered to meet with all four Ladies, regarding the necessary components for the ritual. The group debated how to handle meeting with the four ladies, when, the door opened and Lady Lyla
, Lady Annona
, Lady Molly, and Lady Sarissa, entered, chatting amicably, bearing Macy’s bags. The four approached and Lyla spoke, as Silvermist
‘s return was discovered. The price for the required hair was the head of the dragon, Ferrovax. Lady Annona provided a leaf from The Ellcrys, to imprison the dragon’s head and essence within. The group was assured that Ferrovax had angered all of Faerie and the protection of The Accords had been withdrawn from him. The group agreed and then the ladies departed.
At that moment, Loki appeared to ‘converse’ with the group. Since his offer of help was refused, he ‘blessed’ the group (a free tag usable by the GM once per session on each PC) and departed. The group then noticed that Kathleen, the owner of The Shop Around The Corner, was not there, something they never saw before. Janice proceeded to monologue on THor, Odin, and Loki, and during this time, Kathleen returned, fixed her hair, applied a band aid to her right arm, then went back to working the register.
Telloria, Alex, Janice, and Noonien went to Times Square
, where Alex opened a portal to ‘Disneyland’. Arriving there, Telloria broke into song, while Janice’s look was quite different from the last time, looking like Maleficent with bat wings. Alex opened a portal from this part to The Realm. Janice took to the air, where she spotted an army camped several miles away. Janice led the way to the army, several miles away, several orcs appeared ad bowed down to Janice. The orcs addressed Janice as the Demon Queen, saying that Lord Jarlaxle missed her and would be happy to see her return along with The Princess as a prisoner. An escort was provided for the Queen and her prisoner.
The party was escorted to the army’s camp, where shouts of joy went up from the troops. At the center of the camp, Lord Jarlaxle stepped out from his tent (Darkness from Legend) and claimed to have killed The Queen. He wanted Telloria taken away when Janice protested and Noonien Challenged him for leadership, claiming to be The Queen’s fiance’. Noonien then attacked Jarlaxle. The group then joined in.
With Jarlaxle’s defeat, the art hailed The Queen. Noonien took and knee and swore the army to Her. Janice proclaimed they would be attacking their enemies and to prepare to march. Janice returned with a shadow crown floating around her head. Returning to the Shop Around the Corner, Doug and Teri also saw the crown. At this point, Bors and Grigori entered The Shop.
The two einherjar were happy to see Ulrun (Janice) again, and she told them she needed their secret ways in. After a conversation, the information of accessing the two fortresses was provided, and they began to leave Janice shared the information and went to leave, Alex arriving and handing her a teddy bear, which turned her into a quivering crying mess. Janice then departed.
Orders were issued to General Burglecutt and The Dark Queen’s Army and the portal was opened to bring the army to Jotunheim to assault the Frost Giant’s Fortress. The Dark Queens Army assaulted as the group snuck in through the secret entrance. The group ventured down a hall, triggering a fire trap, then opening the door at the end. The group first made their way to the Treasury, finding it unguarded. The door was opened and the group grabbed the Blingdenstones, when they heard an alarm go off and a voice shout “They’ve broken through! SAVE THE KING
Passing the secret way in, the group spotted the door open and using her new sight, Janice tracked the footprints of the fleeing King, as The Dark Queens Army breached the fortress and charged for the treasury. The group chased down the corridor again. Several fell into a 100’ deep pit, suffering some damage, and then climbing out.
After several more traps, the group caught up to the fleeing Jothe and his guards and attacked. Alex was injured by the blizzard Jothe threw, and then he Yolo’d with extreme prejudice and destroyed all his enemies. Janice then claimed the heart of the King and then mounted his head on a pike.
The army celebrated and looted for two days, as the group rested. During the first night, Noonien encountered an image of Khan, which directed him down the tunnel. Khan Led Noonien into the treasure room where he showed him a sword blade first into a stone. The hilt was a dragon a gem in its mouth, the leather made of iridescent scales, wings forming the crosshilt. Noonien pulled Marduk’s Blade from the stone and claimed it as his own. (Weapon 2, Weapon 8 vs dragons).
