RP Supporting the Hellriders of Elturel and Triel Base

Unread post by DM Dialectic »

//Hello Players Looking to Support the Hellriders of Elturel!

The DM Team has had a huge amount of interest from players looking to have their characters roleplay support of the Hellriders of Elturel based in their forward operating base in Triel or just generally on the Hellrider routes of patrol or in Elturel itself in this 1356 DR RP year. At this time, the DM Team does not have the resources to consistently DM every player request that comes in on these lines of RP in a manner that would be fair and diligent to each player request, player requests generally, and overall to the DM Team's resources. There may be DMing exceptions to this throughout 1356 DR, but they will likely be very limited.

What the DM Team is going to do instead in this thread is request players to please post their support of Hellriders in their forum RP here and from time to time the DM Team will post an overall non-specific reaction to the collective efforts of characters that performed such RP. In doing so:

-Please follow all server rules, including related to godmoding and metagaming NPCs in this thread, and do not assume that any action of support for Hellriders IC will make an assured impact on the direction of server RP related to Hellriders and Elturel.

-It is fine to RP joining Hellriders for patrols if that would fit your IC RP or to be voluntarily standing guard over Hellrider lodges or the Hellrider base at Triel as such in a manner that would not upset the Hellriders around there.

-It is fine to post RP of player character patrols in game in areas of Hellrider routes in our server map world in support of the Hellriders aims in these areas IC (namely the Northern Trade Way/Dusk Road map south of Soubar, the Eastern Chiontar map, and the Northern part of the Greenfields/Uldoon Trail map with Greenest on it).

-It is fine to RP providing an appropriate level of IC material supporting aid (food, weapons, arms, armor, magical items, etc.) to Hellriders in their Triel Base, in Elturel, or at the Hellrider lodges.

-Players may not post RPing engaging in combat or otherwise hurting NPCs or PCs opposed to the Hellriders (most obviously the Zhentarim) in this thread unless a DM Team member gives explicit permission beforehand. The same goes for any players that would attempt to attack Hellriders or their assets or allies in this thread, you may not do so unless a DM Team member gives you explicit permission beforehand and to be clear, this is not a thread meant for anti-Hellriders RP and please don't post that here.

-If it was not already made clear: the DM Team is the only and final word as to what dynamic changes IC RP in support of Hellriders has on the server IC.

Thank you for all of your RP regarding the Hellriders of Elturel this 1356 DR RP year and we look forward to more of it in this thread!//


((NOTE: For the many players with outstanding player requests related to supporting Hellriders in RP, the DM Team is in the process of responding to your requests and accordingly directing them as RP to this thread or otherwise appropriately responding to them. We will be in touch with you soon if we have not already about this via PM.))

Hellriders of Elturel...

It is said that in a recent spring tenday that a conference was held by High Rider Lord Dhelt himself in High Hall in Elturel on efforts to support Elturel and its Hellriders against the Zhentarim and other foes of Elturel in the Western Heartlands among beings with such mutual goodly aims. It remains to be seen what support offered over the months following does for Elturel's position in its opposition to The Black Network and other such regional threats to the interests of good in the Western Heartlands. In any case, the newly appointed Captain Vanders of the Hellriders assumes command of forward patrol efforts for the Hellriders out of their base at Triel. Time will tell if Captain Vanders' vigilance and the vigil of those supporting the mission of the Hellriders in the region will be enough for the riders to hold their ground or lose step...

Later on the following eve, a few more Whitewood Vanguard and an ally showed to volunteer. This time a bright eyed Dawnbringer, Tashia, arrived in the company of Captain Dunn, Ranger Ezrel, and Ranger Eva. Tashia's aid was merely in the form of fresh caught fish as a source of protein for the hard working folk.

As for the Vanguard, they arrived to help with patrols.

As well, a few larger, heavier crates needing four dock workers to carry each were loaded—some say the crates were stamped with a magic symbol looking shape, plus what some would say looked like a horseshoe.

Tis said the Fleetwood I was headed swiftly up river to Elturel. Others commented that, should that be true, they sure wished the CC&SS Co. returns loaded with as much Elturian Grey possible....

The Half-elven Jon Smythe, in person to make the delivery, presents the gifts on behalf of "...those within the Gate that stand ready to assist members of the Lord's Alliance whom will truly stand up against the Black Network and its insidious efforts to both subtly and overtly use its resources to influence the good people of the Sword Coast and allies near."

A bundle of hopefully well received magical wares to aid the Hellriders in any—and eventual—defense against the Zhentarim.

The usual shipments from House Darius to Elturel that have occurred for years seem more frequent now, and with additional loads being sent in time of need. In addition to the normal goods which were heavy on smoked fish and other non perishable foodstuffs - standard mainstays of the House's exports - word is that there are also shipments of lumber and other building supplies.

The vessels return with their usual loads of cheese, wine, and other imports like always.

An armored woman arrives to the Hellrider camp on a cormyrian warhorse, bearing a standard of Ilmater.
She arrives with a heavy backpack of healing and medical supplies, which by the end of the day are completely depleted, she spends all her time healing and helping the Hellriders. The next day she rides away on her warhorse.

A tall, dusky skinned man with golden yellow eyes could be seen on occasion within and about various locations in Elturel and Triel at various days, times, and durations of stay. He would frequent the local forges, centers devoted to healing and recovery, as well as nearby stables, before making his way outside of each settlement to place his hand upon a neighboring tree, vanishing shortly thereafter.

The following day saw the Vanguard supplying Sergeant Vox, Sergeant Ril, and a return of the courageous stout, Durald.

More patrol work or guard duty volunteering.

The next day, Captain Dunn returns along with Ranger Jillian, Ranger Mishala, and Lily Summerheart.

The three of the Vanguard happily aid in active patrols, eager for action.

Lily takes up other tasks around the camp including keeping watch.

Another day, more rotated volunteers. Captain Dunn, Ranger Durald 'The Stout', and the new fella - Ranger Leon.

The three are eager to return once more and assist with patrolling.

Captain Dunn takes a moment to try and seek out Captain Vanders, to see if there are any particular supply needs not being met.

A tired female knight arrives at the Hellriders camp, with a big bag of healing supplies and medicine, she spends all her time with the wounded, dead and sick. Doing her best to keep the spirits up "Ilmater endures with each one of you" she said to the soldiers, a taxing task that lasts many hours.

Indeed the days have been weighting heavier on her shoulders than her full plate, but again and again, she returns, to tend to the wounded, riding her cormyrian white warhorse Spirit into the Hellriders encampment.

Rumor on the street within Baldur’s Gate is that Jon Smythe of the Chionthar Charter & Seaward Supply Co. has been promoting and reaching out to various factions about coalition and strategy towards bolstering the influence of the Hellrider’s position in the land of the near east, and specifically, against the the Black Network influence.

It is well known Smythe can be found at the Helm & Cloak feast hall among the Knights of the Unicorn, should any wish to join the coalition of forces.

Melissar arrives again to the camp, wearing her ilmateri cloak and banner to provide healing and aid to the Hellrider troops and spreading Ilmater message of endurance and hope.
