Hey Kev,

I was thinking of using your Plague from the "Plague Elves".

In my game I thinking of having my Hero's be the ones to go investigate it's discovery. My thought was, the Elves discovered some ancient subterranean cavern and the elves that entered of course died. So the elves decide to send my group to investigate. They are resting up after COS.

After the long journey, I was thinking a more "dungeon" like adventure would be in order.

I have some ideas, but wanted to see what you created for this, so I could stay true to your idea, as much as possible Smiley

If you want to take this discussion offline let me know. If you want me to add a spoiler alert for your players let me know.

Kimco,

My original thoughts were that the fey eventually figured out what was happening and saw both the horror and the possibilities of the plague.  I had a group of humans, sort of an order of guardians and care givers tending and protecting those who had the plague.  I also had fey volunteer to join the village to keep the plague alive.  For your dungeon, I could see a bedlam like horror where the disease has driven the plague victims insane and the "order" of human guards barely able to contain them.  You could also reverse it and have the victims controlling the village and care givers either killed or imprisoned and the witch queen cut of and fearing the worst.  She would have to shut it all down or risk the plague spreading.

Actually,
I want my players to be there at the beginning. When the plague is release/discovered. I was just wondering what other information/background you had fleshed out or thoughts you had.

My thought is the Elves are sending the mostly human party to investigate, since all the Elves that have returned were "infected".

Kimco,

Mine was an historical look at the plague.  It had already been discovered and contained.  I didn't do anything with the origin.  I'm happy to bounce some ideas around, but I have nothing already planned out.

I'm very interested to see where this discussion goes. For ease of reference, I don't suppose we can get a few links to the original discussions of the Plague? I'd do it myself, but the computer I'm using (my sister's) is so damn slow that it can't seem to finish a search of the archives.

10 STEP PLAN TO SAVE THE WORLD!!

http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=964.0 -- October 18, 2007
3. ALLIANCE OF MEN AND ELVES -  Try to unite an alliance between the resistance villages in the Gammarilian Delta and the Elves of the Erethor,  to take out the elf plague carriers.  NOTES:  the Witch Council just set loose to go into the north to infect orcs, unfortunately it's a desperate plan that will likely commit genocide and come back on the elves....  The Witch Queen finally decided to use these plagued elves to do this because the Whisperer is failing her people.  These plague ridden elves have a horrible disease that kills any of "fey" blood in weeks.  A group of these plagued villagers now ride north (around the burning line) toward the uppermost Norther Marches, to infect the Orcs, being replaced by their guard warriors  (the Arrows - an elite delta force of elves led by Ossion of the Hamlet) who ride with them as they die themselves from the plague.


http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=1081.0 -- January 03, 2008,
That the Witch Queen had a secret village of Elves that had a strange disease that kills any Fae it contacts, and she was "feeding it" with volunteers to keep it alive just in case she needed to use it against the Orc.  When my PCs learned that she "let it go" and the "Plague Elves" were headed north...  dear god - they now think Aradil is bat-crap insane... heheh  And only now are they starting to see that it might be a plot created by the Witch's Council,  etc... etc... etc...

-- About the plagued groups travels.

http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=1123.0 -- January 29, 2008
The group is travelling from the Green Marches (Dern's Hold) up into the Norther Marches (toward the Bloody Tower and Gasterfang).  They'll be stopping to rest (for spell energy) in the Cobron Isles, where they've been before.  They're rushing up there to try and head off the "Plague Elves" that carry a disease into Gasterfang.  They're trying to stop this "insane" use of the plague that they believe will comitt genocide on both the Orcs and eventually all Fae life...

http://www.againsttheshadow.org/index.php?topic=1218.0 -- April 10, 2008
he unit is going out (outside the authority of Steel Hill)  looking for the "Plague Elves", these are the elite unit of Elves let loose by the Witch Queen to go infect the Orcs with a magical Plague that only infect those of Fae blood (elves, orc, etc..)

Thank you!

Also, I'm pretty sure that the original idea for the Plague Elves came from Fury of the Shadow, but I won't be back home for a couple days. When I get back I'll try to corroborate that, and post page numbers if my memory proves right.

Doomed,

It's from Fury, but I don't have my book handy.

I've scanned through Fury a couple times and haven't found the reference. Anyone else have any luck?
