We return, from yet another time gap, to exploring the strange terrors in and around the Bloodied Wyvern Peaks… and the multiverse of the Bloodied Wyvern Peaks. After breaking away from “Purple World” as the team calls it, everyone lounges at a royal lodge… Nothing suspicious at all! It all feels like a dream.
We’re back! Once again, the weirdness lifts off the material realm… or so it seems. We lose one of our dysfunctional heroes and gain another and more things seem off… if a tad off track entirely!
AUTHOR’S NOTE: Yes, Utopian-Orvaldt is a slight spoof on Blue Rose, with the fashion and style of Hirohiko Araki to boot, even though players didn’t have a chance to explore the utopia too much. No, I don’t have a chip on my shoulder towards Green Ronin, even though I don’t particularly like Blue Rose. The idea was based on old notes I had sitting around for the sake of a light-hearted plane hopping game. I might do something more with that soon enough. Also, I’m sorry for killing off your character super quickly, Evan! Really, I am!
It has been a bit of a hiatus, but we’re back! Hooray! The lands beyond Qvosfeir await, as our team etches closer through the rugged terrain of the bloodied wyvern peaks. And by lands beyond, I mean quite beyond! As always, things are about to get even weirder!
Floating within the bounds of wildspace, one can spot what looks like a whale or an orca. As if through divine power, it glides through the boundless reaches as if it were an oceanic current, all without touching the Phlogiston that so many spelljammers require. However, this isn’t the only place to observe them. Many dwell within the layers of the Beastlands, for they are at home in both the water and the air. Others find ways through their master’s demiplane into the Elemental Plane of Water, as well as of Air. Sometimes, one can be spotted in the Elemental Plane of Ice as well. In fact, there has been an allegiance forged with Ben-hadar and Chaan, the Good Archomental forces of water and air. Many other planar creatures have various levels of respect for them. The free celestials of Arborea, The Eladrin, have even ridden them into battle in some instances. However, the Devas and Angels of more lawful planes think lowly of them.
Among deific powers, the Master of the Pod is a lesser power. However, its message is familiar to many, through acts of joy and freedom. While known for discouraging battle, the Cosmic Coki inspires courage and virtue in the heat of conflict. In some cases, this can mean sparing even the most vile of enemies. Despite rumors, Coki isn’t actually a Beast Lord, despite their demiplane orbiting by The Beastlands itself. In a similar vein, the Celestial Pod aren’t truly native to said plane either.
Author’s Note: HELP! DOC’S ON DRUGS! Just kidding. Now seriously, this was an idea one of my friends had played around with for a long time. This is a mixture of things, tbh; an orca plushie located at a rummage sale, the space whales from Doctor Who and some random ideas thrown at the wall. I realize that Orcas are not technically whales… in case anyone has doubts. Also, the adventure I wanted to write was taking longer than I thought…
