Ancient Dread: Journey to Sulanok




As the Virtuous Maiden sails to Sulanok, a city on the Pendeltor Peninsula of the Land of the South Winds, the party and crew take stock of their victory, celebrate, and care for the freed slaves.  
 
The ship’s log incenses much of the crew.  While slavery is a common and accepted practice, torturing and abusing the higher races is frowned upon in civilized society.  What the monstrous witch and his cohorts did to these poor wretches was beyond the pale.  To his dismay, Strongbow discovers among the names some he recognizes, members of a family branch not to distantly related.  The ones who supplied them also a branch of the Trillof line.  That’s going to need to be dealt with and most severely. 
Echo, the party’s water/air warlock spends her time with her slave Ackdor and translating a journal she discovered in the cabin of the Slaver’s fire warlock, K’lak.  The journal largely makes reference to an organization known as, "Legion," but is non-specific as to the meaning behind it. Presumably it alludes to a large number of people. Each member of Legion is gifted/geased with a purpose that somehow revolves around a group known as, "The Chosen." Who they are or why they are chosen isn't explained.

There is a bit about The Chosen being sent off to retrieve something. It isn't clear what it is, at times sounding like a powerful weapon, other times a great treasure. Whatever it is the mastermind behind the "Legion," is desperate enough to get it that he has servants who are punished with immortal life until they fulfill their duty or suffer a fate worse than a thousand death referred to as "The Punishment of a Thousand," and was greatly feared by K’lak. For some reason or another this Master of Legion is unable to himself retrieve the desired treasure. Whether due to inability, or the need to remain hidden, the latter being hinted at more, isn't expressly explored either.

There are references to an archipelago in the southern seas, as the author put it, "Beyond the ken (understanding) of mere mortals."  The destination for the continuation of the quest.


Frederick the Priest, under orders from the goddess Apis due to his despicable behavior killing a captive, tells the party a sorrowful tale.  When he was a small child, the witch Kraltos and his slavers killed Frederick’s family and took him as a sacrifice.  Frederick’s beautiful singing voice was his salvation, such that it was.  The witch cut off Frederick’s manhood to the root to maintain that voice and kept them as a reminder as to who Frederick owned true allegiance.  Later escaping, Frederick became a servant of Apis but was ashamed due to his lack of organs.  Such has been his quest for many years, to retrieve his manhood and find a way to reattach it, making him whole again.  Since Apis greatly opposes senseless violence, she forced Frederick to reveal his shame to his closest companions. 
Strongbow spends much of his time with the Captain and Alta.  Negotiations over dividing the booty is friendly but intense.  They decide that the bounty of gold, gems, and jewels will be split between the captain/crew and the party.  The carcass of the Shedim that remained on deck will be sold to an alchemist in the city and the proceeds also split evenly.  The captain will keep the slaver ship, along with its supplies while the party, which had done some picking just following the battle, will keep what they have found.  The slaves will be turned over to Land of the South Winds constabulary for healing and un-conditioning.  For this, Captain Macintyre agrees to continue in the service of the party as they look for this archipelago past the Floenries. 
After these negotiations, Strongbow gives Alta, the lady elf he has taken to, a gift.  Following the battle, he picked up a short sword.  Normally not much of a weapon but this one being eternally sharp.  A fitting gift for such a sharp tongued one like Alta.  As she has also taken to Strongbow, she returns the favor with a gift as old as time.  

On to Sulanok.

What's in a Name?

Based on an idea from Joe's.  An overview of the name changes of the larger gun activist groups in the US. 

Anti-gun groups:

National Coalition to Ban Handguns (1974-1989) became Coalition to Stop Gun Violence.

National Council to Control Handguns (1974-1980) became Handgun Control, Inc (1980-2000) which became the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.  (in 2001 the Million Mom March folded into the BC while under investigation for tax fraud)

One Million Moms for Gun Control quickly rebranded as Mom's Demand Action For Gun Sense in America (2012-2014) which then became Everytown for Gun Safety (when it combined w/ Mayors Against Illegal Guns MAIG 2006-2014)

Pro-gun groups:

National Rifle Assoc. (NRA)  1871 to present

Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms/Second Amendment Foundation (CCRKBA/SAF) 1971/1974- Present

Gun Owners of America  (GOA) 1975 to present


Telling... isn't it?

Insurrectionism Ignored

So a group of violent insurrectionists threaten to physically attack people who vote for a candidate they don't like.

trump jumped

Silence from Josh Horwitz, Ladd Everitt and the other sycophants at the CSGV.

Other racist insurrectionists threaten to incite riots, commit violence, and destroy property if they disagree with the results of a democratic, popular election.

 WarMachine

Silence from Josh Horwitz, Ladd Everitt and the other sycophants at the CSGV.



 For years these anti-gun nut balls have been attacking firearm owners, claiming we hate the US and everything it stands for.  That we will try and overthrow the government at the drop of a hate.

 quote

But when real violent individuals start spouting their rhetoric and committing acts of violence and vandalism... the CSGV goes silent.   Just like all their other anti-gun supporters.

More Chicago Crime Punishments

Three Chicago police officers shot by a drug dealing gang-banger.
Harris' criminal history includes 43 arrests going back to at least 2004, including five felony and two misdemeanor convictions, according to police and court records. His most recent felony conviction was in January 2012 for aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and resisting a peace officer causing injury. Records show he was sentenced to four years in prison in that case.
Just another 'good boy' murdered by the police, right?  That's the missive we're being fed.

Why There's Crime...

Because of people like this:

video


The sister of the teen who died identified him as Trevon Johnson. She said he was a student at D. A. Dorsey Technical College.
“I don’t care if she have her gun license or any of that. That is way beyond the law… way beyond,” said Johnson’s cousin Nautika Harris. “He was not supposed to die like this. He had a future ahead of him. Trevon had goals… he was a funny guy, very big on education, loved learning.”
On Thursday, police say Johnson burglarized a home south of 79th Street near I-95 — just blocks away from where he lives.

 “What’s wrong with her,” asked Johnson’s sister Nisha Johnson. “She did not have to shoot him.”

Relatives said they don’t believe Johnson stole anything from the home but detectives would not confirm that.

But the true jem:
“You have to look at it from every child’s point of view that was raised in the hood,” said Harris. “You have to understand… how he gonna get his money to have clothes to go to school? You have to look at it from his point-of-view.”
Yeah, how's he gonna get all the bling he needs to show off at school?  That woman shouldn't have had all that nice stuff to tempt him anyway.

and.... and.... he's going to be listed as a 'child victim of gun violence'. 

Really wants to make one support poll tests and breeding licenses.
