Atop the Shoulders of Giants

Prok'Tek and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week
Or, How I Ended Up on this Desert Island

Prok’tek spends a couple months finishing the order of golems placed with him by Marias Elward Tisid. As he works he finds time to design and complete a cloth play-golem for the expected child of Marias and Sana Roshan, and to contact and exchange spells with Daphne.

Prok’Tek ultimately expedites the last two models of his production at Marias’ request, then prepares to return home to Svirin. However when Prok’Tek returns to his home he finds that someone has distrubed his belongings in his home. He identifies almost a dozen magical auras in his home that shouldn’t be there, and upon inspecting one closely, is subject to an earth-shattering explosion as eleven obfuscated and trigger-linked explosive-runes spells simultaneously detonate inside his stone home – shattering every one of his golems and only leaving Prok’Tek whole for the fact that he was able to throw himself away from the worst of the blast in the nick of time. Through some quick thinking Prok’Tek is able to gather his golems together and retreat back to Capital City. Over the rest of the day and some of the following, Prok’Tek coordinates with the Svirin militiaman Inspector Aglio, as well as Prok’Tek’s associates at the Sviren Guild of Magical Arts. However before the end of the following ‘day’ in Svirin, Prok’Tek is attacked once again, this time in the open streets of the city. After causing his assailant to retreat, Prok’Tek pursues to re-engage and ultimately falls to his opponent’s attacks – only to be narrowly saved by the last-minute intervention of a by-stander.

While recuperating in a local hospital, Prok’Tek is informed by Inspector Aglio that his descriptions of the assailant lead the militia to the assassin, who resisted attempts to be taken peaceably and fought the militia to the death. A mage on the scene speculates that the individual was undead.

Determined to leave these matters behind, and perhaps hoping to drop in early on a distant colleague, Prok’Tek teleports to Musai the following morning – only to find that the city is actively besieged, and at the time of his teleport, in the midst of active bombardment. Disgusted with his poor luck, Prok’Tek finally determines to teleport to a remote desert island he visited once upon a time. A successful teleport later, Prok’Tek can finally breath a little easy with a little more than two square miles of island, around three dozen palm trees, and open seas to the horizon in every direction…

The Search for Korak

After months of following her sister’s trail, Tsara finds herself in Voltrael as it is being assailed by a horde of zombies. During the attack, she meets Luther Ritter, and following it meets Zelserys Anorallath, and Agamemnon Zhang. But when Lareeclatalmir hears that Korak has left from Voltrael looking for dragon roosts in the mountains, the most competent members of the group quickly head toward the mountains, hoping to find Korak before she can enter a dangerous and deadly tomb, or provide support for her if she has already entered. The experience proves… earth shattering.

The Wonders of Modern Technology

With the help of Prok’tek, Kurika gets a device made to mimic humanoid speech capabilities, then begins heading home to New Jorintiat. In the mean time Prok’Tek continues to make significant progress on his sizable order of golems for the Holy States crown, and completes a minuscule golem instilled with a knowledge of wizardry in his spare time.

Leap of Faith

Following her untimely death, Kurika continues searching for an answer about whether or not she can (or should) return to the mortal realm. After much deliberation and searching, Kurika chooses one of two options, both of which hold unknown consequences.

Golem Solution

After Prok’tek demonstrates his Mztr Vxit Mk.II for Marias Elward Tisid, Ananth of Golir, and Karmi Yusnof (among others), Sana Roshan is asked to help deal with an emergency involving the Content Not Found: shadow-mirror. After some debate for solutions, it is determined that golems are the best option, and Mztr Vxit is sent to save the day. Later, Golshan and Saricel (Orb) are asked to (and accept the responsibility of) watching after Amiona as she is slowly introduced to the mortal realm.

Finally, 10 additional models of Mztr Vxit Mk.II are requesitioned from Prok’Tek, ensuring work through the next quarter at least.

Shipping Dead People

After defending the port of Hargos from a mid-night invasion, the crew and passengers on the Oenira continue their season-long trip to the Greenlands. Once in the Greenlands, they discover that the timing of their arrival may have been more fortuitous than they expected.

Eye for an Eye

When a mercenary arrives at New Jorintiat on a mission to kill Kurika, she has to pull out all the stops, but manages to take him with her… maybe more literally than she hoped.


Amidst the readying of the Golirian political community to create a new, parliamentary body of government, a team of Nada’Athi-loyal wizards are caught casing the Golirian palace for a violent act of mass murder which they intended to frame none other than Sana Roshan for organizing. Less than a week later, Molaen Saldrot, an apprentice with over two years’ tenure in the Golirian tower of mages, is found to be a Kefran spy. Saldrot’s capture is credited in large part to the vigilence and quick thinking of the visiting scholar and Hardscale Clan member, Prok’tek.

Short days later, Sana receives word that Odewyn Blackwell has fallen terribly ill, and along with Tidiolkras helps him perform the ritual that will give his contribution to Legacy.

Fastest Human Alive
... Somehow

Agamemnon Zhang, captaining the Oenira, transports his sisters, Jorimun, and many of the mercenaries who helped free the Obsidian Isles back in the Nada’Fan. Then in the company of Zelserys Anorallath, Luther Ritter, and company proceeds eastward to visit Narikasotho on the way to the Greenlands. On their journey the ship encounters a massive storm that threatens to shipwreck the Oenira, and in the process, Agamemnon learns what it’s like to fly at the speed of hurricane force winds. Miraculously the ship suffers no casualties, and stays more or less afloat.

Opportune Introductions

Arriving in Capital City to make a proposition of services to the crown, Prok’tek meets a number of notable figures around the palace, including the fascinating Golshan.
