Pertinax - Henchbrid of King Astyanax, met by SOAK on Wingman's
Phalanx - Former king of the Brids. Succeeded by Astyanax upon
being killed by SOAK on the Brid Island.
Phantasm, Darius (Gooch) - a smith and sorceror, he dreams of
someday being able to enchant items. Member of SOAK. Missions: Ice
Phase arrows, daggers, swords and other weapons -
Philosopher, Martgass T. (Sam) - Member of OMNICo. Killed (?) in
the Sprinal Tap swamp basin where his grave marker may be found. Missions:
Phoenix, Agent (MattW) - great sword fighter, ancient orc expert.
Ouhd in November 10043. See also Fabrique Cabaret. Missions: Taniger
Rescue, Mock Turtle.
Phosphorus - powdery mineral found in caves and other dark rocky
places. Component for fireball (violet), ignite (white), pyrotechnics
(red), and wall of fire (black).
Picard, Jean-Luc - The brave admiral who led the naval defense of
Gailinean trading ships two hundred years ago, and who died at the hands of
the dreaded pirate, Beigebeard.
Pike, Aragon (Brian) - founder/leader of Pike Group. Died after
battle with the scorpion dude on the Eck Temple Mission, because he was
wearing a spell reflection device that blocked healing magic. He was later
resurrected by the group's mysterious employer. Later entered portal on
Persand after the abortive "Destroy the Portal" mission and was never heard
from again. Missions: ?, Eck Temple Mission, ?, Persand Portal (?).
Pike, Gar (J.C.) - longsword-wielding (?) commando and huge, brawny
fighter type who helped form the Bysshe Commandoes in Bysshe while the city
was collapsing under an assault by some gnomes. Apparently, the gnomes had
some type of powder which would destroy any magic that it came in contact
with in a tremendous fireball (magic/anti-magic?). As one who had studied
the art of magic with his mother, Mystra Pike, he was extremely worried
about this. Fireball casting is always a tricky art, and if his gnomish
foes had some way of making his fireballs blow up in his face, then he
feared that his days as a spellcaster were over.
Pike Group. An adventuring group that specialized (past tense) in
exploring Persand Island. Possibly run by Folger (?).
Known or suspected members: Eric Arondoshaw, January Barron, Steven
Crow, Hugo Down, Saladin Fizzt, Giuseppe Golgi, Goya, Magaloron, Marie
Marat, Elgin One-hand, The Pat, Aragorn Pike, Rhino, Carnie Stych, Tex
Universe, Ursula, Andrew Wiles, Obez Yana, (something or other of Nick's on
? and the Eck Temple Mission - Rhino?, Carnie Stych?, Ursula?).
- Eck Temple Mission for unknown employer (3M?) - early July 10037 -
After acquiring new members in Distown, the group explored The Cave on
Persand. The feeling of dread which was experienced on every previous
expedition to this cave was absent, new passageways had formed, the mouth
of the cave had "opened" wider, etc. An enchanted iron door leading to
bridge over psionic (?) river was breached and first (?) scorpion dude was
fought. Then the party returned to the ships, the Dawn Treader and the
Ambrosia, and decided to send the Ambrosia back to "base" with the fallen
Pike and Rhino, along with detailed reports about the cave to date. The
remainder of the party then returned to the cave to explore some more. The
date was 3 July, 10037. A complex believed to be an Eck temple was then
found beyond the Dark Psionic River. After exploring this complex, they
headed out. They met Keiko, got her message for "The Man of the Turtles"
and fought Mowcrot as they were trying to leave the island. May be
referred to as "Final Mission" incorrectly. (Team: EA, JB,SC, HD, SF, GG,
G, M, EO, TP, AP, R, (CS?), U, OY)
- Black Wall Mission for unknown employer (3M?) - 27 July, 10037.
Persand had been fortified by a black wall with thin, ugly towers inhabited
by swarms of tribal Eckyebrech, which pursued the team to the cave. (These
were encountered over the crevasse passage leading to the "Head Mindflayer
Room" and although the Eck leader was down by a lucky lightning bolt to the
head, they killed two new recruits who went to search the body.) The
feeling of STERILE DREAD, which had been absent on the last trip was back
in full force, and the team found at least one mindflayer and probably
more. A few un-interesting rooms and passageways had formed in an area
which had not been visited on the July 3 trip. (Team: JB, MM, TU, ...)
- Persand Portal Mission with Order of the Ring - . A group of about 20
went to destroy a portal that was thought to be supplying the Echyebrech
base on Persand with ships, supplies and personnel. The portal was
unreachable (or the explosives were used up trying to get into the cave)
and the mission failed. (Team: MM, (AW? Pike? Obez Yana?) [How is this
related to the Omnico Mission?]
Pike, Mystra - magic user and mother of Gar Pike.
Pirates, The - an ill-fated sea-faring adventuring group that met
its end in Dun Cess at the hands of John Drake and John Whorfin. 10038? Known or
suspected members: John Drake, John Kluski, John Whorfin, .
Plague - in 10038 (?) the northward Eckyebrech advance in Vyrica was
stalled and even pushed back by a mysterious plague that affected the Ecks,
but did not seem to affect the native population of EOW. The O.R. team
that assaulted Yarisuto during this time took "cure disease" (?) potions
just to be sure they wouldn't spread the plague.
Poisons in the South Adventure - for EO. Where Uresei Yatsura died.
Pollux (?) - captured Krutch (?) with Clamystra and Castor.
Poppy-Tor (?) - female El Ouhdian on Vorn (?). Mother of Aphasia.
May 3202: She meets Amy Delation who has just been rescued by Errington
Shroud. Later meets Mos and Dos Eisley and party. She was also at the
Obah Ziggurat when the party met Lady Marissa Althoric, blew a hole in the
Ziggurat and saw it heal.
Was with Maroczy when she went through the arboreal
portal with the Captain and the portal was destroyed from the Vorn side.
Met up with the Tim and Werner Group (with Shroud?) in late 3202 at some point after they had originally clashed with Shroud.
According to a briefing by El Ouhd: "It has become clear that there are
multiple planets. At some point in the past these worlds were joined and
all life stemmed from one point." Discussion ensued about these portals and
their magics: There are several entrances in the Sprinal Tap, and in fact,
most of them seem to be in the Sprines. In April 10038 OMNICo spotted a
"tiger wyvern" that is known to come from another world. At the present it
is not possible to reproduce the Ancient Orcish magics that help control the
portals. The links (portals) were made BEFORE the Ancient Orcs. The "keys"
for the portal that the Mock Turtle Agents were to use were two rings, one
set with four stones (topaz, diamond, sapphire and emerald) and another set
with six. (Topaz, diamond, sapphire, emerald, ruby and amethyst)
Abraxian Shrine Portal: in Sprinal Tap and the desert on Vorn.
Arboreal Portal: a link between Vorn and EOW/Arboria.
Black Box: portable.
Cave Portal: in Sprinal Tap.
Island Cave Portal: on Vorn, used by Mock Turtle Group.
Pavimentum Volcano Portal: used by Mock Turtle Group.
Persand Island Portal(s): a fount of evil...
Tree Portal, see Arboreal Portal.
Vorn Portal, probably see Arboreal Portal.
- Everyone knows about the Arboreal Portal, but everyone makes the mistake that this is the first portal we found. Where was the first one? Answer: When we went on the Roanoke adventure way way back when (back when some of us had rolled up and lost more characters then any of you young wimpersnaper players will ever get even a chance to do...) we found the first Orcish Temple. Coming back from grendel's cave if you go somewhat northeast, it is about 1/3 of the way back to Roanoke. Anyway, in this temple there was a large round dark room. The walls of this room had some kind of stars on it that looked projected but had no real light source. Standing in this room had an effect much like standing in the middle of space. It gave an almost 3d effect to the stars. At the time we thought it was just a planetarium and since we had a bunch of Orcish liches to get killed by, no one paid any attention to it.
Well, shoot -- this is pretty important. Was there ever a Roanoke summary? Who played in that? I know it was before my time.
How many portals is this in EOW so far? Correct me if I'm wrong, please:
- -- Arboreal Portal; no stars or other weirdness effects?
- -- cubical portable portal; stars all over the inside
- -- tetrahedral portable portal; ditto
- -- dipping duck water portal on Persand; stars in the water
- -- Sprinal Portal; just a black area?
- -- apparent Roanoke portal; stars on walls as you stand in it?
Portal Rings: The "keys" for the portal that the Mock Turtle Agents were to
use -- two rings, one set with four stones (topaz, diamond, sapphire and
emerald) and another set with six (topaz, diamond, sapphire, emerald, ruby
and amethyst). These may be of Ancient Orcish origin.
Potions - cure disease, cure poision, detect magic, dispel magic,
hair growth, heal, protection from mental attacks (PMA), protection from
magical effects (PME), protection from physical damage (PPD), speed,
Power Groups in EOW - Wed, 24 Aug 1994 15:56, Ben says: We cannot
"save" the "world" alone. We need help, big time help. That means firmly
and thoroughly allying ourselves with a source of power.
- For Werner, and apparently Tim, that source is the ancient orcs. We
have reason to believe that they know what is up and that assuming we do
moderately well thay will continue helping us.
- The Alliance counsel is less knowledgeable, more easily corrupted, and
less generous with major artifact level magic items, although they are
admittedly more giving when it comes to pegasi.
- Aretheya is questionable in terms of her loyalties and intentions, not
too mention the fact that she is about as clueless about the major things
as we are.
- Netco - Magos is out of the question.
- El Ouhd is too much trouble to work for, among other things. We have no
other apparent source of knowledge than the ancient orcs. I say our goals
should read as follows: Find the Lich who is supposed to know where The
King is. Find it. Reclaim The Captain. Find sufficient people to
complete the virtue puzzle at the first Ziggurat. Proceed from there based
on the knowledge we have at the time.
- Shangri-laists -
- Druids -
- 3M -
Psionics - near magical power of the mind.
- Knownor suspected psionics:
Peregrine Falcon, Taniger Falcon, "Flame", Wizard General Peabody, Rajendra Thar.

gypsy elves, the Swords.
Puente, Tico (Ben) Surface dwarvish male. Jazz drummer, elvish-raised, flower lover, Santa Claus worshipper. Died with a peaceful soul under the orcish temple near Roanoake.
Pulping - the act of destroying a person's head/brain so that they
cannot be resurrected, turned undead or otherwise brought back from the
stillness of death. Some adventuring organizations have instituted this
drastic and brutal procedure in order to protect vital information that
might otherwise be extracted from deceased members.
Purple algae - thrives in the cool pure water of mountain pools,
kettle lakes, glacial run-off, etc. Ingestion removes the ability to
begrudge, dislike or hate. Component for charm person.
Pyatnitza - gnomish deity. See Dead Gnome Puzzle.
Pyatnitzan temple in the Sprinal Tap - place where Amanda Rose died (presumably) in 10043 on a mission for SOAK.

from Trangle. Member of SOAK. Missions: Trangle Sewer, Distown, Culebra
I, Inver Brass, Culebra II, Omniventure, Telemancy I.
