    1000! maybe....-- Pablo
    820ish give or take a skip and a jump--Gawr

    3 Why is the WHoP the weapon of choice for fighters? (I received more responses, too much animosity, goes to prove no one likes fighting! But in Oberin we love our fighters smile )

    Because they like WAR- Fuoco

    4 What would you call a druid that has tamed a tusker? (I received 3 answers for this question from a certain crazy wizard...I chose the response that seemed to most puzzle her wink )

    Slowcoach?-- Fuoco
    Hard to kill. -- Granthor
    This question is irrelephant.-- Llino

    5 Why is it that you always hear birds but you never see them? (Apparently this was a trippy question...we will leave it at that....)

    Because it is all in your mind.-- Granthor
    They hide in the treeeeeees.-- Cadeyrn
    I don't eggsactly know the answer to this cheap question.--Llino
    Cause they already pecked out your eyes.-- Otaktay

    6 What's the buoyancy of a raft? Please supply a numerical answer. (Nerd alert!)

    500 pixels per kilobyte squared- Nieven
    Gaper o ikadani tunaide ukabimasu! /I think it works by connecting the gapers to the raft-- Hayate
    I'm not much for buoyancy puns but whatever floats your boat.-- Llino

    F(buoyancy raft) equals the amount of water that has been displaced.
    W = weight
    p = pressure
    A = area
    h = total height of the raft
    g = acceleration due to gravity
    y = height of the raft that has been submerged
    m = mass

    W(raft) = p(raft) * A * h * g
    m(water displaced) = p(water) * A * y
    W(water displaced) = p(water) * A * y * g
    p(raft)Ahg = p(water)Ayg
    p(raft)h = p(water)y
    y= (h * p(raft))/p(water) = 550h/1000 = 0,550h
    p(raft) = 550 kg/m^3
    p(water) = 1000 kg/m^3
    That means 55% is submerged
    So if the raft has a total height of 20cm and has an area of 40 cm by 40 cm (0,16 m^2)
    That means the buoyant force of the raft = 1000 * 0,16 * 0,11 * 9,81
    = 172,656 N = 173N -Cadeyrn

    Father Vei's Origin of Oberin Species has been destroyed!
    Help him restore it! Gather the information from the parchments you find.
    Courtesy of Modlin:

    The first one was The majestic Forest Dragon with a wing span of 15 human lengths (squares) and grow to be ancients at age 400..
    Second was bat cave bats apparently eat carrion carcasses produced by rats
    3rd was the Ice Dracos with Skin of blue to help them survive the cold environs of the ID
    4th the PB's of The island off the coast of Aborek.. They deal powerful damage and poison while having an Armour rating fit for a fighter
    5th lava spiders at the volcano, their power comes from the magma itself
    6th Stone Golems (rock giants) East of Duldrus dealing more damage in a single blow than any previous beast..
    7th the house on the lake where the nameless one studies SS whose skin is made of crystals!

    Text clue 1:
    The forest dragons are truly magnificent creatures. With a wing span of just reaching 2 tiles, they can reach an amazing width of 5 tiles, intimidating their foes before crashing down on them, annihilating them. Only the daring and capable will look for a fight with a dragon.

    Text clue2:
    Bats and rats, they seem to co-exist in peace, but this is all because the bats are eating the carcasses left by the rats. If this weren't happening, the bats would be sure to make quick work of the rats, those nasty vermin.

    Text clue3:
    It is amazing how some monsters have the ability to survive in such conditions. The ice dragons, surviving the coldest cold, maintaining that cold and using it to their advantage: thus, a warning for adventurers: "Look out for ice dragons! as blue as the sky they are!"

    Text clue4:
    The sand spiders have the power to both strike a deadly blow, while they also have an efficient poisoned attack, which kills their target from the inside.

    Text clue5:
    Magma is the life force cursing through the veins of the volcano and nurses the lava creatures to their full power. They even say a magma golem is created out of hardened magma, but due to the heat nobody is able to touch it. Those who have tried to analyze it by touching it for an extended period of time no longer have the ability to touch. Once one enters the volcano, a hue of deep reds can be seen, everywhere. The further you go, the deeper red it becomes, and if you go too far, this red is abruptly turned into gray.

    text clue 6
    Stone Golems are slow walking boulders of stone and raw power, their fists have force enough to take down even the mighty mountains themselves, creating baby golems in the process. As such, they are often found around the largest of mountains.

    text clue7:
    Sea Serpents are magnificent creatures. Unlike their kin, The Phase Serpents, they can only swim in the sea, as their name says. They are colored a nice green with tiny yellow dots. These yellow dots are actually gems. the gems are part of their thick skin which is practically impregnable except for the sharpest of blades, or the deadliest magic strikes.With their fierce jaws killings hundreds of thousands of humans, they have become an incredibly feared sea creature.

    Chronicle of Lerilin findings

    Venturing in the woods of the continent, I chanced upon a cave and, after some deliberation, lit a torch and proceeded to explore it. I found it to be inhabited by Giant Bats, a few Giants Snakes and Giant Rats. They seemed to coexist in peace, scavenging and eating the carcasses left by the industrious rats who, in the absence of traditional sewers, had chosen to populate the docks of the fishing village and the complex labyrinth of tunnels which, from the outskirts of Lerilin, runs deep below ground for many leagues. The smell of guano was overpowering, so I was obliged to refrain from exploring further.

    .....

    The need for fresh air and natural light led me in a north westerly direction. This leisurely walk in a more congenial environment brought me to the shores of a lake. Alas, the beauty of the scene that unfolded before my eyes was marred by some scaly creatures of alarming proportions - by instinct I knew it was best to keep at safe distance, so I sat on the grass, content to study them at arm's length, so to speak. A roaring sound startled me - just a few steps away from my observation point, one of the beasts had reached, with its surprisingly long neck, a sheep that was grazing nearby and devoured the meek creature at disconcerting speed, This gave me the opportunity to observe its skin, which appeared thick and encrusted with gems, and the fierce jaws. Jaws capable of killing most humans in one bite. The swishing of the formidable tail caused some water to splash on my face and I could taste salt. I was in the presence of Sea Serpents!

    ....

    Fascinated by the sight of the Mountain that regurgitates lava, I drew closer and wondered if there was some access that would allow me to study this devastating force of nature a little closer. Eventually, one of the tight passages in the rocky surface proved the lucky one - vapours were pouring out of the entrance to what could possibly be the bowels of the mountain and, wiping the sweat off my forehead, I ventured to take a quick look inside. I was invested by a wave of heat that almost suffocated me but, after the initial shock, the body somehow adapted to the hostile environment. Maybe the walls of stalagmite acted as some sort of coolant. Here I observed that magma seems to be the life force of the creatures of the mountain - almost all characterised by skins of deep hues of red - Lava Spiders, Rust Beasts, Fire Elementals, Red Dracos and Dragons were certainly at home here, but I do not know what to make of the Hell Hounds and the Giant Bats. How did they manage to retain the characteristics of their kin who live in the open air? And I was positively mystified by the presence of Bone Mages! One attribute red coloured creatures seem to have in common is immunity to magic fires.

    .....

    My Journey to Duldrus

    After a perilous journey, I reached the remote territory of Duldrus, probably one of the most hostile regions in Oberin. As I followed the road towards the mining village, I was struck by the appearance of a creature of gigantic proportions - each step it took caused the ground under my feet to shake. I had met a Stone Golem. These creatures are slow walking boulders of stone with enough force to take down even the mightiest of fighters. Subsequent studies have revealed that etherite is their life force.

    ----

    Two days later I set sails from the docks at Duldrus and, at vespertide, spotted what, in the distance, looked like a snowy peak, just visible by the feeble silvery light of a young moon. I disembarked and found myself on a tiny islet. A shiver ran down my spine and I wrapped my travelling cloak tighter around my figure, then pulled my hat down to better protect my ears. Maybe the icy wind would not strike so hard in the nearby recess? By Elara! I nearly tumbled down a hole in the ground! Struggling to my feet, I realised it was not snowy ground my hands were grasping for support - I was holding onto something solid... a ladder!

    If there is a solid ladder, there is probably life, I thought to myself as night fell and the moon shone more brightly - now she was the sole mistress of the skies! My eyes turned to what was below me - I discerned a faint glimmer and, one cautious footstep after the other, descended into what revealed itself to be some dungeon of ice. Maybe an ancient realm? Who lived in such a remote and forlorn environment? Some creatures had indeed adapted to this hidden world, buried under snow and water. I marvelled as I observed the local fauna which had developed the ability to survive in such cold chambers - blue as the sky they were... Frost Spiders, Ice Dracos (so many of them!), Ice Golems and fearsome Ice Dragons. The only creatures that came to remotely resemble humans were Frost Giants - a bunch of crude barbarians, if you ask me!

    ----

    Poison Island, Marali

    Still full of my disturbing encounter with the living Mountains of Stone and the Creatures of the Ice, I continued my journey and, having reached the ruins of Aborek, the sight of the floating carcass of a Harpie slowly driven ashore by a south easterly current, somehow pushed me to cross the water in the direction whence it came and, after a very short voyage, I landed on a sandy island. Sand Spiders and Giant Scorpions were scuttling around. My eyes lingered on the latter and rested on their formidable stingers, with their power to strike both a deadly blow to incautious travellers and rapidly poison their blood. Their thick carapace can prove difficult to penetrate except by the hand of more experienced hunters. Sand Spiders seem to rely principally on their poison, which they inject into the bodies of their victims through their fangs. Our species has learned to extract the liquid from the glands of these creatures and make efficient poisoned weapons.

    ----

    Mirith Territory

    Partly walking through woods and partly along roads, I left Marali and found myself facing a huge rocky chain. Wondering what I would discover on the other side, I paced up and down, exploring every crevice, until by the will of the Goddess I found a narrow passage. Pushing my satchel behind my back, and paying attention not to tear my robe, I managed to squeeze through it and emerge into a thickly wooded area. No signs of human life, but the forest was rife with sounds. I recognised the piercing voices of the Harpies and advanced in a south westerly direction. From time to time I would spot a Giant or a Poison Elemental or a Rust Beast (funny that some creatures of the Lava have adapted to such a different environment and yet retained their scarlet hue!). Suddenly what seemed like a strong gust of wind violently shook the treetops - may a storm was approaching?

    It was no storm that suddenly shook the trees and obscured the sky above me. Any other sound suddenly ceased and a dark green creature, speaking human language, roared its anger at the presence of my good self - just an insect, as it put it, and yet very unwelcome! Such are Forest Dragons, so wise and yet so intolerant. With a wing span that equals the size of probably twelve human beings lined in a row, they can reach their prey at alarming speed, and take no prisoners!

    The End

    Entry in Father Vei's diary:

    I was glad to return to my home in Brigobaen after such a long absence - even the musty smell of the library cheered my heart. After a good night's rest, the task of re-arranging my scrolls and editing the results of my research for posterity would not seem so daunting.

    He needs your help identifying the thief.

    Yes.-- Alidar

    How should I know!-- Alidar
    It had none.-- Kalt
    Red.-- Rosina

    The thief wore leather armor and wielded a sickle.-- Kalt
    Clothes.-- Gawr
    A strange robe. -- Rosina

    A knife.-- Granthor
    Babble babble babble.-- Kalt

    5) Did the thief have a companion? A pet?

  • Hunt 5
    Dec 8 Hunt
    1) What happened here? Are there creatures we cannot see? Ghosts?
    Once upon a time, Dwarves were believed to live in that dungeon. Many moons ago, we just caught sight of one but he swiftly disappeared into a remote corner, which we could not access. This was in the days when ranger Flingee roamed the lands.-- Aleisa, Astrea, Gawr, Hacton, Hayate, Kalt, mikomi, Raza, Rieven, Rosina
    Death!-- Yanina
    Liches...always liches.-- Granthor

    2) Why was the entrance to the dungeon made in the shape of a skull? What evil lurked here?
    Because it was made by those who are dead.-- Granthor
    Maybe to warn off any explorers that only death was to be expected if passing the threshold. I like to imagine it was a den of Pirates.-- Aleisa, Astrea, Gawr, Hacton, Hayate, Kalt, mikomi, Raza, Rieven, Rosina

    3) Who lived on this island? Were they far away to hide their evil deeds?
    Ralston....and yes he had some Privateer business that got him killed.-- Granthor
    Evil Doers!-- Anakajae
    When I was younger, there was a tale of Brigands who had retreated there. They had hollowed the trees to hide in their trunks and pounce upon any unwelcome visitors. The trees were still hollow when juff, Gawr and I paid a visit. Those trees must have died as new ones have now grown on this tiny island.-- Aleisa, Astrea, Gawr, Hacton, Hayate, Kalt, mikomi, Raza, Rieven, Rosina

    4)Why were the Lizards never successful in taking Mirith? Is the tunnel haunted?
    Yes.-- Granthor
    Because they had not the Ssssstreanth.-- Granthor
    The Lizard Men learned that, despite suffering some defeats (there were bloody battles at Welif), Mirith was not prepared to succumb. All the people of Oberin came to support the Royal City and drive away their commanders - Ssscglaw and Ssssglissya.. The Lizard Men had learned to build rafts but we destroyed them all! Unless they choose to join forces with the Hill Giants, under the command of somebody cleverer than they are, they'd rather defend the exit of the tunnel on their island than venture within. --Aleisa, Astrea, Gawr, Hacton, Hayate, Kalt, mikomi, Raza, Rieven, Rosina

    5)How do the vermin survive here? Who hid all the treasures?
    Rogues of the Futures past.-- Granthor
    They are yucky that is why!-- Anakajae
    They survive by eating green fairies?-- Raza
    My aunt hid the treasures!-- Rosina
    They feed on the filthy discharge of the sewers - there are open pipes and, I suspect, on the carcasses of their kin! As for the treasures, maybe this was the work of some clever and mysterious Master Rogue!--Aleisa, Astrea, Gawr, Hacton, Hayate, Kalt, mikomi, Raza, Rieven, Rosina

    6) Where did this island come from? What will it be used for?
    The ocean (duh) it will be used for Evil.-- Granthor
    It surfaced during the reign of King N'eroth. Maybe one day, we would have been able to find some secret access to the volcano. --Aleisa, Astrea, Gawr, Hacton, Hayate, Kalt, mikomi, Raza, Rieven, Rosina

    7) Why is this specific bracken kind to humans? Were our races once allied?
    He is torn between both sides knowing that both are wrong and both may be right.-- Granthor
    I guess Brack figures that, if he gives us logs and we give him roots, he can make his species survive!--Aleisa, Astrea, Gawr, Hacton, Hayate, Kalt, mikomi, Raza, Rieven, Rosina

  • 13th April Scavenger hunt: We Participants 3 - Nanasisan, Hiyoko, and Modlin Chased Pirates through 7 destinations winding up at a cave near the Volcano. By the time we arrived the Pirates had gone, and Nana feared our mission was in vain. It asked us where the pirates had come from.. we are meant to base our intel on the previous questions at each location... so in Mirith we were asked if anything was missing from the castle.. I can only remember that a Centaur is missing that used to be there.. but this seems to be a red herring, the empty chests seem to indicate treasure was stolen.. and pirates were seen transporting treasure out of Andris docks.. Near to the Icey Isles we were asked to describe the pirate ship which I figure looks like rafts bound together as a treasure barge.. a robbery in the Briggobaen temple saw a page torn out of a book on treasures of the world, and I think there must have been something noted therein that led them to rob the Mirith Castle... So where did they come from?.. The antipodes given that all the destinations were seaside ports.. maybe my centaur theorum is not unsound as we know they departed for other shores... perhaps they forgot some precious hoofed treasures in Mirith and sent their seafarers to collect.. The Blood Cults are also active again, so there is every chance that the miscreants are from the alternate plane.. bloodlusting pilfering Pirates?.. that's our guess until further info rears the head..

    Modlin, Nanasisan, and Hiyoko..
