Places

Seagate Guild
Braegon occasionally stays at the guild lodgings or just crashes in a corner of the Healers chambers if helping out there. Convenient when doing intensive training or work at the guild.
Tobintown, Brastor
Braegon helped rebuild Tobintown after the Dark Circle devastation and made a few friends there. He visits occasionally and usually stays at the inn.
Fastness of Girwyllan
Braegon knows the fastness well, and knows a few short cuts to and from there.

Manor House in Eastern Brastor

Braegon has inherited and restored an old manor house in eastern Brastor, about 5 miles south of Emmitsburg. He usually stays here and potters away in the gardens and fields when in Carzala and needing a break from the bustle of life at the guild.

The nearby hamlet is shielded from view and accidental intruders by apparently natural terrain features and flora. The locals are various people who needed a home and are willing to live in harmony with nature under Braegon's protection.

GM Notes: There is an Astral Gate in a tower partially concealed within an Oak Grove behind the manor and an Inter-planar Portal Nexus in a basement well below the Manor. The Oak grove is a Pacifistic Earth Place of Power.

Slow Portal to Asan

At the end of a discrete cave, then entrance to which is moved on a regular basis, the back wall is covered in 2 tonnes of copper plates.

This is a slow portal allowing a 12 hour trip through some very cold & frosty dangerous lands to a warm sandstone cave.

The other end of this slow portal is in a sandstone cave somewhere in the desert of Aśan.

Guild members on adventure are welcome to make use of this portal, current directions to get to the cave can be obtained from the Guild.

Farm in Northern Flugelheim

Braegon holds lands in northern Flugelheim, he has carved several farm houses, stores, and stables into the hills and added discrete walls and ditches to secure the estate from most predators and bandits. The farm is worked by local free-men/women who pay a small percentage of their crops as rent.

Some slightly odd ponies are bred here.

Not widely known but there is a small healing chamber here consecrated to Diancecht. Healing in this chamber is easier and faster than normal.

Manor in Northern Artzdorf

Braegon holds deed to a poorly maintained manor house (with six staff) which is the only surviving section of the large set of ruins known as ‘the Castle Alexi De Vault’.

Its location is in the Daluing Valley in northern Artzdorf. Rumours of missing locals, underground ruins and dungeons persist to this day. Retaining staff members is hard because of the ghosts.

The house has four stories, a basement, ground floor, first floor, & attic. The six staff members have bedrooms in the attic level. All of the stable hands, groundsmen, and wood cutter have a small cottage in the lower garden.

Improvements
Above description is as at Autumn 821wk. Work is then started on restoring buildings, cleansing the land of malign influence, revitalising fields, blessing the people and livestock...

City of Brass

The Elemental Lord of the City of Brass that bears a remarkable resemblance to Braegon has a modest dwelling in the city. The Lord is reclusive and frequently absent on business.

Permanent Portals

A set of connected permanent rune portals created by Prudence of AnteCarzala. The portals are runes carved into stone around existing arches or to create an arched doorway on a stone surface.

These portals do not require a Rune Mage to activate and do not cost Fatigue to use, they will activate on touch and transport the entity to the next portal in the chain. Most of the portals are concealed in hard to reach sections of obscure natural caves.

Portal Points
Brastor - Braegon’s Manor House, 5 miles south of Emmitsburg, in the basement of the manor.
Brastor - Tobintown, 5 miles west of Tobintown in a cave in the forest.
Carzala - Candlestone Farm, in the hills 5 miles west of Candlestone Farm (40 miles west of Guild).
Ranke - Sanctuary, 10 miles north of Sanctuary in a concealed mountain cave.
Aquila, Bremen, a hidden mountain valley in southern Aquila, in a cave in the mountains at the south of Bremen.
Pagan Mts, North-East of Glissom, north of Brandenburg, west of Aladar, a mountain cave well above the snow line.
Eltrandor - Algain Mts, a small cave high up on the western-most of the Three Sisters, Algain Mt Range
Eltrandor - Lake Eltran, a small cave with an underwater entrance in the Asgran Hills, North of Lake Eltran. Prone to flooding in Spring.
Artzdorf & Flugelheim, in the basement of Braegon's Estate, northern Artzdorf and Flugelheim

Planar Nexes

Braegon knows of the following Planar Nexes and has means to travel between them. Travel time is usually 1-2 weeks.

  • Earth Nexus - connected to or part of the Plane of Earth, a flat plain dotted with tailings of Tunnelling spells that come and go.
  • City of Brass - a powerful and well connected Nexus with many permanent paths maintained by the Lords of Brass.
  • Alusia - a labyrinth of tunnels and caves beneath Braegon's Manor House in Brastor.
  • Terranada - an alternate Alusia, the Nexus is in the same location in Brastor as the equivalent on Alusia.

Braegon Investments

Healing

Braegon, having over-committed himself to various interests and causes, is rarely at the guild but often hangs around the Healers when is is at the guild.

His base chance for Resurrections is currently 130% plus the below modifiers. He is life-aspected, he prefers to do resurrections in groups of 4 or 5 at a time.

+ EN patient’s normal full endurance.
+5 if patient is life aspected.
- 5 if the patient is death aspected.
- 1 for each year of prolonged life.
- 1 for each day of regeneration required.
- 10 for damage equal or greater than 2 x EN.
- 10 per resurrection attempt.
+ 8 under moon light
+ 8 from Acupuncture if required (adds a couple of minutes to the time)
  • The minimum BC is 13% and the maximum is 105%.
  • A resurrection from Braegon is instantaneous (normally no more than one resurrection per pulse).
  • Base chance for most other healer abilities is 103%
  • Repair will take 8 hours (or 5 under moonlight), Regeneration will take the same time to initiate then regrowth will be 14% per day reducing the subjects maximum FT by 14 for that time (or 15% per day and -15FT if initiated under moonlight).
  • Should a guild member require it, Resurrection of Undead is difficult but possible with some additional costs.
