What is a power nexus? Is it common knowledge, or was the info implanted in my brain when I was transported here?

I  have been assuming it is something obvious like  a crystal with lighting bolts coming out of it, or a big humming hot box with massive cables, or a Stonehenge, or a huge ferris wheel in the center of the flat area......

There is very limited info in my journal under the  original mission details.

Who are Icarus, Brett and Katherine?


What shadow are they talking about?


Is it okay to admit to them that I have no idea what they are talking about?

Not sure who the three names, part of the pantheon or heralds/messengers of the gods?


I was saving the I am clueless newcomer Convo for the future tavern/library/pround, rather than the guard station....

Assuming I will get more info from the pround and library.

You mean in character or OOC?

If in character I assume we will get some good information soon at the library and or the bar....
I think my questions are laid out fairly well in my journal and other people have chimed in with questions...

Power nexuses are kind of like cell towers, they are dying and decaying metallic installations (and steel is pretty rare, most weapons are corrugated iron) somewhat resembling watchtowers. They look like claws planted in the earth and radiate with blue light.

Icarus, Brett, and Katherine are the rangers and monks, you believe they are somewhat green but still wielding and hefting a certain clout and power. They are the Striders of Farlaghn, whose dealings might become more clear over a beer. They seem good-intentioned but you might wanted to remain guarded lest the shadow trick you. The shadow is the military arm of the dark god Izrador whose aims are somewhat ambiguous and he may at some point become your friend depending on how corrupt the party ends up being, but with a lack of true good and evil, as I said, sometimes the bad guys are supposed to win.

My character spins enchanted silk and has 7 natural melee attacks. Should be alright to have some specific weapons good against specific creatures. Race DOES eat up all my initial levels though.

I am hoping to level at some point, though PBP (play by post) does tend to take a good while.

Yeah, I pulled from savage species to turn the species into a class that completes the monster so she isn’t even an adult by their standards because it had to be broken down to smaller pieces. She owes another level or two to grow into the full measure of her species. Then she can start growing beyond them.

She can’t change form as much, doesn’t have quite the magic, can’t web as often and has a few stat points left to gain.

No worries, hopefully we keep moving forward.

Is my journal a useful tool or is it just getting too cluttered?

It might make sense for anything journal worthy to be posted here first and then I can edit it into only having my "entries" rather than other commentary, if that makes sense.

Locations
Creatures
Deities
Organizations
Definitions

If it is kept to mostly bullet points, that will help keep organized and the least amount of text on a subject while still defining/describing them adequately will allow new folks to benefit from what we have discovered- or let the DM correct things.

the times of Aryth
Is this a time under this old god before the coming of the dark entity?





Erenland entered into journal...

Is the glassworks in High wall?
glassworks is also still burning and the gimmicks they make seem to have a connection to some kind of dreamcatching.

So these are items of contested ownership, between Highwall and Erenland?
The scythe of Jil and the return of the mad Splintershield are like a trademark, sorting through the petty trade as though the whole world had taken notice.

Arghh. More than half of that last post makes no sense. Izrador and Aryth are personages of some sort but no one will explain them since the info relating to them is NOT coming from people present at the tavern. It is presented like someone ASSUMING WE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT.
The messenger makes a hand motion and Sleeps one of the Striders? No Sleep spell I've ever heard of can affect level 10+, and the Striders are around level 16. Given the casual tone that Icarus is speaking in I assume this is a prank of some sort between old comrades?

The tithe is spread out on the floor? Did someone attempt to take my weapons from me? There would have been an altercation in that case, level 16 characters or not.

I think the tithe is something Icarus is suggesting we can take as a job, load those given things onto the wagon, setting up the next step after the power Nexus-, and the pround.

And thats another thing. I asked a Strider what a pround was and was ignored. More assumptions?
