The Tale Of Naraku

As a young drow living in the caverns of Undercity Naraku discovered he had many talents especially in the arts of summoning and healing. He abandoned loth in favor of vulkoor and set out to the surface where he became a wondering sage. He travelled all over stormreach, it was on a chance encounter he encountered a wounded and dying half-orc. He said he was named Bumpun and was traveling with a group known as the pants party. He said they had no healer so they went to search for one. Naraku healed him and and started to head back to town when Bumpun asked if he would like to join them, to which naraku promptly agreed after a strict negotiation upon a price for his skills (for he was homeless and living day to day on what he scrounged up). He now works for free with the pants party knowing he will be well gaurded and fed for many months to come.

Backstory of Rhyit (if you want to know)

Rhyit Schild
Born and raised in a remote village far to the north. From a young age, he was trained in the ways of the blade by the town's Captain of the Guard, his father. Shortly after his sixth birthday the town fell under the wrath of an upstart Pirate. As retribution for defying him, he killed all of the Town's Guard, and kidnapped many of the townspeople, Rhyit included. Told they would serve aboard the vessel, or be served as chow, Rhyit did as he had been taught, taking a weapon from one of his captors and cutting the luckless Hobgoblin down, he wreaked havoc until sheer numbers overwhelmed him. Upon realizing Rhyit's skill with the sword, (and losing the ship's cook in the process) the Captain charged Rhyit with the safety of those he had been captured with. For fifteen years Ryhit served as one of the elite troopers aboard the ship, sneaking those he protected off every chance he got, doing his best to lessen the casualties on the ships they attacked. On the eve of his sixteenth year aboard, he had finally gotten the last surviving member away safely, and was planning his escape when they were set upon by the Bombom Raider and the 'dreadful' pirate captain Yaaryar. Rhyit managed to extricate himself in the ensuing chaos, only taking his sword, his clothes, and the bandana he stole from the Captain. Having made his way to Stormreach, Rhyit has joined up with a group of adventurers calling themselves the Pants Party. And this my friends is where the past becomes the present...

Pants' Party (PP) recently ran the Tempest Spine raid with a wonderful bunch of people. To the left is the entire raid looking for ham, we were all quite hungry after this. It is now Bumpen's goal to organize Ham Day and see how many toons we can get to look for ham at the same time. PP recently completed the Library of Threnal and got our Mantle of the World Shaper, huzzah. Veggi was unable to attend due to computer issues so I am sure we will be visiting again for more loot. Loot, Huzzah. It would not be a PP outing if not for some posed photo ops. To the left is PP in front of the menacing gate of the Temple of the Six, Narakutore is about to put a Vulkoor curse/blessing depending upon your belief system upon the door. Stand back, poof, see next picture. Boom a blessing of Vulkoor upon the Temple of the Six what a slight to the priests of said temple. PP would like to thank all the good people who run raids with us and don't suck. viva la pants.....

Random Photos

A few random screenshots of PP adventures. PP members have reached level 10, halfway to TR baby, and have been busy. To the left is the PP swimming in the crypt of the Shadow Gaurd.
PP was retained by House D to travel the Blood Road and found some terrifying things swimming in the sewer. You be the judge of what this is.

This one is simply called "Whyskey in a Tree"

While flagging for VON PP took a rest in the big-ass chair.

Another in the series of artistic impressions this one is titles, "Magic Beans, Cornbread and Rainbows"

Viva la Pants....

Sentinals of Stormreach

Hello from the Searing Heights... Wish you were here. Pants Party (PP) has been busy, touring the beautiful searing heights and making friends with its' lovely denizens. Pictured to the right is our friendly neighborhood healer, Narakutore, and his pet scorpion, with Whyskey, Absynth and Veggimatic taking in the view, looking good ladies.

To the right is a shot of Rhyiot hamming it up for the camera in front of the apptly named Splinter Skull Fortress. PP made short work of its' occuPANTs and received some nice rewards from a rival hobgoblin cheiften.

PP was called upon by House Denneith for a serious matter concerning pirates. Pictured left is Narakutore getting the plan from a Denneith captain.

After travelling to the pirate stronghold, PP shattered a powerful crystal allowing for House D sailers to storm the citadel. Huzzah pants party!!!

After foiling the Pirates' plans PP sabotaged the Crimson Moon pirate ship. In typical PP fashion we took a quick picture to commemorate the event. Absynth sure can jump.

I think the Evil Pirate captain sums it all up in this shot.

Finally, just for my own sense of style, a picture of the beloved Bumpun Uglies silhouted against the full moon. What power and grace, what beauty. Excuse me while I wipe a small tear from my cheek. Words can not justify this masterwork, enjoy, breath in that which is Bumpen in Flight.

Pants' Party (PP) has been busy. The PP has achieved level 9 and participated in its' first raid the Chronoscope. To the left is the dastardly Professor Tremus, about to be taught a harsh lesson by the PP and fellow adventurers. However, Tremus has a few tricks up his sleeve and before you can say, "Shollacktar", Tremus summoned up his demon allies.

The demons performed a strange ritual known as the Vultron dance, I believe an early 80s' disco favorite by Sister Sledge, but I digress. The elemental demons formed together and posed a formidable foe for the PP. How will this end?

The boss demon ended just like every other boss the PP has encountered, face down in a puddle of death. Don't forget to click on the images for a larger picture.

Finally, in true PP fashion a posed photo-op of the gang celebrating as Tremus gets his come-upance. After a quick tour of Three Barrel Cove the PP has learned of an Ogre that needs their help on Sorrowdusk Isle.
Until next time, Viva la Pantaloons
One final note the PP has been in service of the Sovereign host and thwarting the plans of the Black Abbott himself. Although not powerful enough to face the Abbott as yet, PP did manage to stop his plans in the Necropolis concerning the Bloody Crypt.

Hosue P and Corrections

It was mentioned that Rhyit was an ex-pirate, when in fact he is not. His past remains somewhat of a mystery, but all shall be revealed in time. To the left is Pants' Party member and all-around hottie Veggimatic. This pint-sized dual dwarven ax-weilding shortie deals death in style mmmm-hmmm. PP took a tour of the Phiarlan Carnival last week and needless to say kicked carnibutt, is carnibutt hyphenated?

In true PP fashion, it wouldn't be fair to kill a boss without having your portrait taken first. From left to right, Bumpun, Veggimatic, Ianbass (who's contract is about to run out), Absynth (first class theif and fashionista), Whyskey and Rhyit "I'm not a pirate, although my hat says differently".

PP Would like to thank House Phiarlan for hiring us to investigate the mysterious cabal.

Brand New Pants or Art Imitates Life

The tale of the pants party started out well, but alas they were eaten by ghouls on their very first quest. So begins the tale of Pants Party II. A more dedicated lot of adventurers the world has er' known. New pants party members include Bumpun Uglies the Barbarian, Whyskey the newly reincarnated Sorceress, Rhyit a former pirate turned adventurer and sticky fingers Ianbass the rogue. This portrait shows the triumphant adventurers who ever so recently foiled the Sinister Cabal's plot to assassinate House Phiarlan's Viceroy. Veggiematic was not documented in this portrait but tales of the dual-weilding dwarf have already been heard among the free agents' criers.

Art imitates life. Have you ever been on vacation, taken a beautiful picture of your friends only to find out that some jackass stepped into the frame, I present to you art imitating life as an ashen haired warrior steps into our posed picture and then stayed there, probably buying some drinks. This made me laugh a great deal.

Good Hunting,
