Aes Sidhe

The First Encounter

The players found themselves in a Freehold which had been advertising itself as catering to the “Glamourous.” We met a bartender named Ciar who we could tell was a giant green fella, an Ogre. Just past the bar we encountered a banshee named Uvo. She told us this freehold was called The Farthing. The Courts of New York come to the Farthing to discuss and coordinate business on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. We were told we are not allowed to tell people outside this city or non-Fae about this place.

Jarvis was established at the Farthing.

Lucas, Arianwen, & Gryffin are recent refugees. Arianwen and Griffin had been in the city for at least a while and had appropriate clothing. To say Lucas looked like a hobo would be an insult to hobos.

Gryff angered a tentacle changeling by suggesting it was just like from a hentai he watched. This started a bit of a commotion and Uvo wailed at both Gryff and the tentacle changeling, fatiguing them both greatly and stopping any further altercation.

Aria made friends with a lamia (possibly snake-typed beast seeming) named Nashwa, who has lived in the freehold for a few months and had collected or scavenged various items of worth from around the city and Aria was welcome to try to assemble computer parts or whatever else she might need. Ciar also gave her a weirdly cobbled together Atari 2600 and said it was a computer. :)

Gryff was carried back to his room by Lucas, who then also helped Aria move some boxes from Nashwa’s room to hers.

Troublesome Brews

Moghedion arrives at The Farthing with the rest of her rescue party, at the same time as Lyra. Awed by the changes, Moghedion looks for a herb shop and answers to how things have changed so much. The group, and a butler-looking wizened fae follows her under Ciar's orders to keep her from bringing up too many questions from mortals. Jarvis pays for her after she buys some herbs, and the group stops at Big Gay Ice-cream to get some ice-cream. The bar next to them has a strange symbol on it that is clearly out of place… and made in the blood of a changeling. The group take a sample of it for further testing, and investigate a little further.

Using his ability to see what has happened in the past in a reflection, Jarvis's sees an apparently thing man with what looks like a hood pulled over his face. Jarvis could tell he had pale skin, long black hair, thin face. Broad shouldered. wearing a backpack, dressed in all black with jeans worn around the pockets. He kneels in front of the window making hard to make him out, but he is drawing a symbol. His features are pretty androgynous. He acts casual but he's checking over his shoulder as we leaves.

Moghedion recognizes the sign is a reconstructed up rune from older times, and recognizes that it was used as decorations on grave stones.


The symbol looks like a hamburger with eyes.

The party finally makes it back to the Farthing. There, Moghedion meets Mina, the writing mass of tentacles and shares her concerns for Mina's being and mental well being. Mina gave Moghedian a hug. Jarvis texted Uvo when she's next available because Ciar was having a bit of a problem trying to push buttons with his massive hand. Moments later, Uvo joins Jarvis, Moghedion and Ciar, greeting Moghedion, offering information about the courts and freeholds.

Moghedion has asked for a job at healing changelings and possibly helping changelings out with deformities and/or injuries, of which the Freehold will supply Moghedion with Goblin Fruit for doing that job.

These GIFs are going to put me in MY grave

The session starts. Jynsed posts one cat gif. It was a mistake. Everyone posts cat gifs. Jynxed has to remove posting permissions from Discord for everyone.

Session actually starts.

 

Several days later Uvo calls for a meeting, discussing the findings of last session. One changeling came forward to say that they have seen someone matching the description Jarvis gave in Washington Square Park. Uvo asked all who were available to investigate this matter.

After going to Washington Square park and doing a bit of investigating, a Mask was discovered over a bit of land and dispelled, revealing what appears to be an open grave. The party then rolled to ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.

Vindictive Hedge
Session 5/01/2017

Lucas, Mogheddion, and Jarvis are given a new task by Uvo to find and bring back another changeling by the name: Am'noshyr Yett.  Uvo sets up a meeting with some goblins that would help them find him.  The party gets into the hedge safely into a clearing to meet a couple goblins, as planned, and begins questioning the Goblins about details of the changeling they were looking for.  Turns out the goblins had their new friend locked up in an uncomfortably small cage.  Uvo seemed to have left out a few details, as the goblins wanted a trade for this poor man.

Lucas attempts to offer Jarvis to the goblins, who comments that he would could make quite a profit, much to Jarvis' chagrin.  Jarvis first attempts to tell them they would making a big mistake, no, a very big mistake to if they do try taking him.  The goblins were unfazed explaining they've heard that line many times before.  Jarvis offers a deal of goblin fruit instead, however the party is short a few and have to find some.  The goblins gives them 20 minutes to find an adequate amount of goblin fruit and were kind enough to even let the creature go with them to find some goblin fruit for his freedom.  But should they fail to bring back the goblin fruit in a timely manner, they will spill the beans on the Free Hold: the Farthing's location to the True Fae.
The party accepts the deal, as come rolling out of the cage, a skinny, spindly creature rolls out in front of them. He had long limbs and fingers, smooth skin so pale it looked grey, bushy hair growing at his arms and legs.  His eyes were a shiny black abyss, unnoticeable sclera or pupils.  The creature looked frightened, and upon release attempted to run away into the unknown dangers of the hedge.  He was tazed by the goblins on the first attempt, but was stopped and picked up by Lucas before he got himself seriously hurt or worse.

Am'noshyr was squirming, kicking, and wiggling, trying to free himself from the ogre's grasp, but alas, the strength of the ogre's grapple was unfazed.  Assured that they were working to help free him, he was calm enough to be set down and follow the party on his own, though the hedge seemed to have other ideas.  Plants and bushes seemed to grow around him, trying to grab at him, slowing down his movement.  The creature looked as if he may bolt at any second, but Mogheddion approaches him, and tells him that he'll be alright, we bring him protection, he will be safe if he puts his trust in us, as Lucas gives Am'noshyr a reassuring pat on the back.  He visibly calms down and the hedge seems to loosen its grips and lessen its attempts to grab at the poor spindly creature.

With that ordeal out of the way, the party makes haste.  Onwards! To goblin fruit!  Though shortly into their march through the wicked forest, the plants seem to start rotting around Jarvis.  A slight ways disturbed and mostly disgusted, Jarvis attempts to run away from the rot.  However it seems to follow him where he went, seemingly like it was harassing him.  The rot grew worse as he tries to Nope The Fuck Out, as Mogheddion notices what's going on.  She tries to explain to him that the hedge is trying to mess with him, and to try and distract himself with something pretty.
Pretty! Jarvis exclaims. That's surely easy to do, all he needs is his makeup mirror.  But to his horror, the moment he flanced into the mirror, Jarvis saw a hideous old looking version of himself and reflexively drops his mirror.  The mirror surprisingly didn't shatter, and as he looks into from afar, he sees that in the mirror it was just an hallucination.  Relieved, Jarvis calms down and the rot starts to dissipate a bit, but any of it goes unnoticed to him, for he puts his attention in his mirror image as the party continues to trudge along for goblin fruit.

A few minutes into the adventure, the party encounters a strange looking bush.  It obviously harbors a goblin fruit, enticingly dangling a few in the direction the party approached.  The brave Mogheddion takes the initiative to grab the first fruit she sees, as she does, the plant begins to wrap itself around her arm and refused to let go.  Mogheddion tries being courteous at first, until Am'noshyr corrects her approach, advising that she must be rough with the plant.

"No, no, no you're doing it wrong. You have to be mean to goblin, the goblin like being meaned to.  You must show goblin who boss!  Shout at it and it will do what you want."

Taking the advise, Mogheddion shouts for it to let go, and as she does, the plant detaches its fruit to Mogheddion and runs into the bushes.  Mogheddion, surprised at the results of getting quite a juicy fruit in such a manner goes to grab for another.  She misses, realizing the plant is no longer there, looking around for it, she shouts into the distance at the bush.

"YOU FUCKING PLANT, I TRIED TO BE NICE AT FIRST TO GET ONLY A FEW FRUIT. SAID I WASN'T GOING TO TAKE EVERYTHING, I JUST NEEDED A FEW.  I SWEAR I WILL BURN YOU!"

As she was seething, the plants around the hedge seems to be laughing at her, inciting her anger a little bit more.  The gang picked up the pace. The hedge grew more twists and turns, making it harder to keep track of where they have been.  Just few more cuts and turns, there were some goblin fruit…. lodged right in the bushes of the hedge itself.
Brave Mogheddion rushes forth, putting her arms through the dangerous bushes to try getting the fruit.  Successful she was, though she was burned in the process, causing her to use her Will power to avoid harsher consequences.  What she pulled out was a small vine with what looked like a raison at the end of it.  The gang decides that this one might have been a little weak, so they made a turn to the right… lo and behold! a bush bountiful of goblin fruit. AND IT WASN'T LODGED IN THE HEDGE!  Mogheddion was not pleased about the twist of her fate.

The journey back was thankfully not as harsh if they concentrate on their destination.  A few minutes of walking around the gang finds their way back to the clearing with the payment for Mr. Yett's freedom.

Saving Private Richard. (cont.)

End Session: 5/28/17 – Jarvis and Moghedion managed to get Richard to come with them peacefully (for now) and try to escape. We fought a spider, fought some vines that ate a goblin and left the leg saying you should try the goblin. There are creepy as fuck shadow voices in our heads telling us things about our past and about eachother (some false some not.) Eventually we made it to some purple mist that Richard ran through and Jarvis and Moghedion followed through and were teleported to a new place in the Hedge. Jarvis found a goblin safe place.
