Thundereggs & North American Indian War 2017

E&K Crystals Enumclaw & Kapoonis Jace Ghostwhisper describes legend of thunder bird and thundereggs that led to eruptions 2017.

The most well known to non-natives being Tahoma, the Lushootseed name for Mount Rainier. Mount Cayley and The Black Tusk are known to the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh people who live nearby as “the Landing Place of the Thunderbird”.

The thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples’ history and culture. It is considered a supernatural bird of power and strength. It is especially important, and frequently depicted, in the art, songs and oral histories of many Pacific Northwest Coast cultures, and is found in various forms among the peoples of the American Southwest, Great Lakes, and Great Plains.
Across many North American indigenous cultures, the thunderbird carries many of the same characteristics. It is described as a large bird, capable of creating storms and thundering while it flies. Clouds are pulled together by its wingbeats, the sound of thunder made by its wings clapping, sheet lightning the light flashing from its eyes when it blinks, and individual lightning bolts made by the glowing snakes that it carries around with it. In masks, it is depicted as multi-colored, with two curling horns, and, often, teeth within its beak.

The reagent delivery included Oregon Sunstones, which are infused with copper and small low Q (quality) Thundereggs

Thundereggs
The most popular rock in Oregon is said to be the “thunderegg.” Thundereggs are “nodules” or “geodes” that form when agate, chalcedony, or opal precipitate within the cavities of rhyolite, welded tuff, or perlite. Thundereggs can be ugly on the outside; however, when they are cut or broken open, a treasure of colorful gem material and crystals is often revealed. Thundereggs range in size from less than one inch to over three feet in diameter.

The mystery of breaking or sawing thundereggs to see what is inside is a large part of what makes them so popular. They frequently contain layered or for(N)tification patterns of colorful agate, sometimes with a drusy quartz-lined inner cavity. Other specimens contain clear to milky or mossy chalcedony.
Opal: Precious, Fire, and Common
A number of different types of opal are found in Oregon. An area known as Opal Butte in Morrow County has produced hyalite, hydrophane, crystal, contra luz, fire, common, dendritic, and other varieties of opal. Although some of the opal found there is unstable during cutting, a number of great gemstones are still produced.

A small fraction of Oregon thundereggs are filled with opal, and a smaller fraction of those contain gem-quality material with play-of-color. Some contain a blue opal known as Owyhee Blue that ranges from a blue gray to a brilliant sky blue. Some contain common opal with beautiful scenes and patterns like the cabochon below. The hope of finding opal or colorful chalcedony is what drives much of the thunderegg popularity.

The Native American Nations NAN use magic as their primary weapon against American and Canadian military in what comes to be called the North American Indian War. The havoc reaches its height on Aug 17, 2017 when Mt Rainier (60 miles SE), Mt Adams (96 miles SE), Mt St Helens (96 miles S), Mt Hood (Seattle to Portland 175 miles to S, then 60 miles E Portland) all erupt in cataclysmic fury

4 exeptionally pure and highest quality thundereggs from each volcano were used in a ritual by Indian shamans to cause the eruption. They performed the ritual with 13 most powerful mages each stone has 3 directing energy to center. The center was an exceptionally powerful air elder who upon completion of the ritual left the earth and joined the spirit world as a Thunderbird

Rumors that this was a form of pyroelectric fusion…
Lithium tantalate (LiTaO3) is a crystal exhibiting both piezoelectric and pyroelectric properties, which has been used to create small-scale nuclear fusion (“pyroelectric fusion”).11

Enumclaw Info & Map

Enumclaw Listeni/ˈiːnəmklɔː/ (US dict: ē′·nəm·klŏ) is a city in King County, Washington, United States. The population was 10,669 at the 2010 census.5

The Enumclaw Plateau, on which the city resides, was formed by a volcanic mudflow (lahar) from Mount Rainier approximately 5,700 years ago.6

The name Enumclaw is derived from a Salish Native American term that translates as “place of evil spirits”, apparently referring to Enumclaw Mountain, located about 6 miles (9.7 km) to the north, and referring either to some evil incident that occurred there or to the frequent powerful windstorms that affect the region.78 Native American mythology tells the story of two Pacific Northwest Native American brothers – Enumclaw and Kapoonis – whose father turned them into thunder and lightning respectively. The City of Enumclaw says the name means “thundering noise”.9Enumclaw.jpg

Investigation @ Crystal Mine Resort

Found a Grey Dwarf (Gopher) at mine entrance helping himself to Jace Ghostwhisper’s drones crystal haul. He stated gruffly, these are not the droids you are lookin for and drew his Ruger Superhawk, but ‘Fragmaster Flash’ Trogdor was quicker and fragged him unconcious and near death. Crow healed him and was questioned and turned over to local security for delivery to Lone Star police and Enumclaw jail. Found a runestone crystal emanating ‘blood magic’ and a room key to Shady Rest hotel in Carbonado.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
