The adventurers found that the Lyre of Building had already been taken from Hendrox's tomb. It was ok though since they made friends with Hendrox and got a beer with him in town. The adventurers figured out the the other adventurers they met on the road took the lyre and that Galrayin had marked it. So they returned to Whimseydale.
The adventurers also named themselves The Whimseydiddlers.
When they got back to Whimseydale they had found that Unvroid had mixed all of Li Zzard's beverages together so that all the bottles had the same amount and consistency. The Whyimseydiddlers then returned to Camanter to inform him of what they found out about the lyre and their plan to convince the other adventurers to join them. Camanter told them he would meet with Galrayin as a way to distract him while they got the Lyre. The Whimseydiddlers convinced the other group to join their glorious new nation and to meet Camanter. When they got back to Camanter's cave he was still fighting Galrayin. Eventually Galrayin left and Camanter struck a deal with the other adventurers.
Camanter had put together a list of tasks that must be done to create the new nation.
- Survey a location for the capital
- Camanter thinks he had found a good place for the capital and sent a surveyor. The Whimseydiddlers should go and find this surveyor and get his report of the area.
- Acquire troops for General Togo to lead
- Nomadic Barbarians
- The Flame Raiders
- Mounted troops in the planes that are lead by someone that can create fire.
- The Order of the Feathered Arrow
- Tengu monk archers. They can get some great shots while flying.
- Grippli super spies. They can find out a byunch of info on stuff
The Whimseydiddlers decided to go survey the possible location for the capital. They hired a guide, Gazzi Furgani, that looked like Tony the Tiger to help them travel through the forest and find the surveyor, Ferin LaRoussi. He was not GRRREAT! They also visited the Tuneston university library to get some info about The Lost Library. They found out that librarians sometimes find the entrance to The Lost Library somewhere in their stacks and never return. We also checked out books about the Dewey Decimal System, The Lost Library, and monsters from around the world.
The Whimseydiddlers then entered the forest. After some traveling they found some dead body guards and some gross mind control fungus. Eventually they found Ferin in his upside down boat. On their way to the location Gazzi and Li Zzard were infected by the mind control fungus. Gazzi Ran away but Li Zzard was able to resist. The Whimseydiddlers were able to protect Ferin long enough for him to survey the future location of the capital. Ferin then righted his boat into a river, everyone piled in, and they sailed back home.
Once back at Whimseydale, The WhimseyDiddlers met back up with Neville Nedd. They then went looking for the Flame Raiders. They made contact with the Flame Raiders but they seemed to be using some illusions to mask their true numbers. The Whimseydiddlers followed the Flame Raiders back to their camp. Their leader, Flameo Hotman, is an android with the power to control flames. He had a few conditions that must be met if he was going to help the Whimseydiddlers make their nation. The Whimseydiddlers must:
- Find a way to protect the planes while the Flame Raiders are away
- There must be no battles fought in the planes
- Convince them that it is a good idea
Rob then had a very sensual data transmission with Flameo that lasted a week.
During Rob's downtime Trodor began marching troops through the planes. The other Whimseydiddlers went to stopped them with the help of Job Ishtar, the Flame Raider illusionist and son of Papa Gogal.
