Cardinaris's attempt to embody the PotSD: www.heroquest-larp.co.uk/whats-it-all-ab...and-the-aldonar.html

The story of Marius and Dymwan - www.heroquest-larp.co.uk/whats-it-all-ab...overed-material.html

From my short time as Lord Cardinaris's personal ambassador, I recall he tends to keep varied company:

High ranking Dymwan (High Priests / Sorcerers etc), high ranking Undead (Mummy Lord, Zombie Lord, Wraith Lord, Ghast Lord etc). He also has a small number of human elite guard with embodied undead, who seemed very tooled up with protections and items etc.

He was also able to travel across the PotSD very fast, although it seemed to be pre-arranged. He was also able to travel through the Void at will.

I would expect that, should he find himself pursued, he could utilise this ability to make a quick departure.

We've also made use before of his Travelling Lodge, which I recall he can summon to any location and protects those inside from scrying.


Will post more here when I have the time, feel free to add further information in the meantime.

In addition to the above, I have heard second hand reports that a strike from Cardinaris's staff brings about death, his touch withers limbs, and he can access ritual evil power with ease. There's probably a lot he hasn't revealed too.

I believe several of the group have ways to avoid the effects of the staff. Withered limbs is a real problem. I would imagine that deposing him from his realm lord status might bind him to Orin Rakatha. Sounds tricky.

One thought, who in the Dymwan might benefit from Cardinaris's removal? Lord Mian comes to mind....

I met Lord Mian recently. He did not think there was anything more that Lord Cardinaris could teach him, so I doubt he would stand in our way. However, he would not see himself returning to the Kern Valley.

I believe there are a couple of us that could hold off the offensive actions that have been described to date.

Conversely, does anyone have any idea what we could do that might actually cause harm to him? At the moment, we seem to be reliant on whatever information the Lich is able to impart.

Additionally, we need to ensure that we get him into a situation from which he cannot evade, via his Hut, or via his ability to navigate the PotSD. Meeting him not on the Plane of the Sleepless Dead would be a good start. Some kind of ward may also prove helpful, such as that we deployed against him in the Hall of Heroes.

Lastly, what makes you say that he would be bound to Orin Rakatha should he lose his Realm Lord status?

I believe the current view from reports from all towers is that everything currently on Orin Rakatha has no way of leaving by conventional means so it is a possible avenue to explore.

Hmm. One interesting thought occurs to me, and it is but a thought.

Travel between planes normally involves some traversal through the void. Arguably, there are different ideas as to whether different things that we term 'void' are all referencing the same thing.
Nevertheless, was this manipulation currently available, one would have thought our friends at the College of Spatial Correspondence would have leveraged it already in their investigations.

This leads me to wonder whether individuals bound to Orin Rakatha are able to traverse the void between Realms of the Plane of the Sleepless Dead… given that travel through this could leave you anywhere, or nowhere.

My hypothesis would be that it "shouldn't" work. If this is the case, then it would be convenient for us, as it would mean individuals on the PotSD are confined to one Realm. If it is not the case, perhaps this avenue could be exploited to travel off-plane after all (LoX/WC would probably have the greatest knowledge).

Re:Lord Cardinaris - What We Know 4 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 4  
Whilst battling the tedium of the calm before the storm I resolved to sort and arrange the contents of my undergarments draw into some, more pleasing, semblance of order... I do so love order.

Now, why do I mention this... I rhetorically ask myself.

Well, I came a across a little trinket; a trinket I had quite forgot, since I have no need of it myself. Still, I thought, given the nature of our intended endeavor it might prove useful to benefit the weak minded and flabby willed amongst our number.

So, for your delight and appreciation, I offer the group the use of the Candle of the Last Stand. This provides unending courage to all those near it as long as it is lit. I would guess, looking at the size of the beast, that it would last well in excess of ten hours of continuous use but perhaps more. Considering what we know of Cardonaris and the unseemly rush amongst our evil High Priest to bolster their will with Pacts against Fear, perhaps it might prove useful. Just don't expect me to carry the damnable thing.

Lets just hope it doesn't live up to its name, eh?

A useful find, Harlequin.

On its previous outing the last stand was for our opponents. I would be happy with a similar outcome here.

You wouldn't have the urn lying around too? Although if memory serves, I believe Melieth took that particular item.

Ah, it does make me chuckle to recall those days.

I believe you are correct on both counts.

And continuing along that vein, Harlequin.

Lord Stealth - loyalties with new or old master?
