Following is the updated schedule. Further dates will be added periodically. Please avoid the quests listed under the Episodes as "to be completed". Quests listed under the Interludes can be done at any time although it would nice if more folks were around for the Thursday meets to work on them together. I am also including links to information about the various quests so you can look up prerequisites, quest givers, etc.

Episode 6: New Allies?
23 February 2011

Servants of the Banshee

The Servants of the Banshee is the official guild of the Farstriders Forsaken pacer. There are two requirements for membership in the guild:
    the character must be a Forsaken
    the player must be a member of Dramatis Personae
You do not have to be a regular attender of the Forsaken pacer in order to join the guild if you'd just like to have the tag in order to avoid random guild invites.

If quality roleplayers ask about membership in the Servants of the Banshee, direct them first to dramatis-personae.com and ask them to sign up. Once they are members of DP, then they are eligible for membership in the Servants.

Guild Officers:
    Bereth (priests)
    Beaumont (warlocks)
    Joss (mages)
    Ombre (rogues)
    Winnford (warriors)
When we are working on plot-line questing, the officers will be the ones forming groups. At the meeting preceding questing, we will form into a raid group, and individual groups will be determined; then we will separate to reform in five (or fewer)-person groups.

    Joss Nikros (frost mage): Mishell
    Aethelbert (mage): Goeben
    Alyssan Fenmoss (mage): SerenityBlue

Episode Guide: Season Two

Episode 1: Journey to the Plaguelands
4 June 2009
Pacer level: 51
At long last, the Servants of the Banshee have advanced far enough in their skills to be useful in the Plaguelands. The land is under the double threat of the Scourge and the Scarlet Crusade zealots who fight them and everyone else. But what else is the Scarlet Crusade planning there? Every step will bring the Servants closer to discovering.
Quests completed: The first two farms in the Scourge Cauldrons series. The opening of the Better Late Than Never series.

Episode 2: Scourge Cauldrons
18 June 2009
Pacer Level: 51
The Scourge is spewing their plague into the very air of the Western Plaguelands, but the Forsaken work to neutralize such filth. In order to begin counteracting the plague, samples must be taken from the four cauldrons located at four former farms in the area. Two remain to be analyzed.
Quests completed: The Writhing Haunt and Gahrron's Withering in the Scourge Cauldrons series. Finished the Better Late Than Never series.

1 April 2010
After a brief discussion in the Undercity on the subject of bargaining, Avar, Matina, and Ombre flew to the Plaguelands to continue their work for the Blightcaller. On the way they stopped at Gahrron's Withering to find a shield. In the Eastern Plaguelands, they tracked down both Duskwing and Borelgore. Upon their return from these tasks, the Blightcaller sent them back to the Undercity where they were pleased to accept the Dark Lady's orders to track down the Scarlet Courier. Determining that she and her bodyguards would take a stronger force to defeat, and awaiting the company of their fellows, the trio instead flew to Light's Hope Chapel to speak again with Carlin Redpath, who sent them in search of particular skulls from the nearby Scourge. As the necessary Scourge proved difficult to find, the group decided to wait until another time to continue their work.
Quests completed: Duskwing, Oh How I Hate Thee, The Corpulent One, Heroes of Darrowshire, Villains of Darrowshire

22 April 2010
The Servants made an initial foray into Stratholme. They first faced the legions of Scourge, including a rather grumpy tobacconist, and also freed some of the spirits of the citizens. Tucked away in one of the corners of the large city, they found a stronghold of Scarlet Crusaders who also fell, one by one, to the skill and strength of the Servants. At the request of the Argent Dawn, the Servants set fire to the Crusade's archive and at last came face-to-face with the leader of this particular band. Imagine their surprise when Grand Crusader Dathrohan turned out to be
Balnazzar, brother to Varimathras.

Quests completed: The Restless Souls, The Archivist, The Great Fras Slabi

29 April 2010
Following on some leads from the Royal Apothecary Society, Avar, Matina, and Ombre traveled to Kargath in the Badlands, made their way through the Searing Gorge, and ultimately found themselves in the Burning Steppes. In addition to some work for the RAS, the Servants gathered information and conducted experiments for a small band located at Flame Crest.
Quests completed: Broodling Essence, Tablet of the Seven

Loot Rules

These rules will apply to any instance group of the Servants of the Banshee, so that we don't have to discuss them each time and can keep things moving. If you are grouping up for quests and such, feel free to use these or any other rules the party agrees to.

Items that are Bind on Equp:
    Roll Need if it is something you will use immediately, an upgrade to your current equipment that you are at the appropriate level to use.
    Roll Greed if it is something you cannot (or do not) use or wear, for whatever reason. If you are not of an appropriate level, but it is something you would use very soon (within one or two levels), you can ask the recipient for a trade or a gift. (Price-gouging of fellow Servants will not be appreciated by your pacer leader. :))
Items that are Bind on Pickup:
    ALWAYS pass. We will then conduct a brief discussion about who can use this item and make Need, Greed, or Fashion rolls as necessary.
In either case, if there is an enchanter in your party, you can pass on an item to indicate your willingness to allow the item to be disenchanted for supplies that can then be used to provide enchantments to the Servants.

Outraged by the suggestion, the Servants traced him back to Utgarde Keep and destroyed not only Keleseth, but all the vrykul inhabitants of the place and their Scourge minions.

In the process, they heard news of another apothecary camp to the west that bears investigation.
