Thinking About Those NPC Alliances – Grey Moon

One thing that I have noticed in DDO is the number of alliances that our characters make with various NPC characters. One of these alliances is with the Grey Moon Ogres of Sorrowdusk Isle. We first encounter the Grey Moon Ogres when we travel to Sorrowdusk Isle from House Deneith. We help deal with a minor revolt from within the old and proud ogre clan and stop the possible destruction of Stomreach by defeating the troll tribes and worshipers of the Cult of the Six. In doing so, we gain a lot of respect and favor from this old clan of powerful ogre warriors. However, after we complete the story arc for Grey Moon Waning and Cult of the Six we don’t hear back from them.

So it made me wonder what the Grey Moon Tribe has been up to and if we can expect to hear from them anytime soon. It also made me wonder if there would ever be a time where we could call upon the Grey Moon ogres to help deal with some terrible threat to the lands of Xendrik or Stormreach itself. In regards to the first thought, my first impression is that the ogre tribe re-established itself and brought itself back to order with Lord Hragg making sure to “clean house” of any potential trouble makers but I also imagine he looked more into the issues that caused that particular rift to begin with and addressed those as well. It was quite clear that Lord Hragg was more than just a warrior but was also knowledgeable. Especially since it was Lord Hragg who translated and read the manuscript from the Temple of the Six.


Helping out the Grey Moon tribe.

Looking more at the possibility of combining forces with the Grey Moon tribe to fight off some potential threat is intriguing. We know that at some point in the future that the safety of Stormreach, and possibly the Isle of Grey Moon, will be in jeopardy from some type of evil force. Perhaps another attack from Droaam or another force from Dal Quor will be the next threat that the heroes of Stormreach will have to deal with and maybe this new threat will bring out the alliances from our past exploits, such as Grey Moon, to our aid. Who knows what we’ll see in Stormreach in the coming year?

Thanks for reading everybody and happy hunting in Stormreach!!


What NPC’s would you like to meet in person if you could?

While I’m running around Stormreach and Eveningstar with the myriad of characters I have created and adventure with, I can’t help wonder what it would be like to actually meet some of the NPCs that we commonly encounter in the game.  Some of the more interesting NPCs I would like to meet would include:

1).  The Dragon Emissaries from Argonesson-Cydonine especially
2).  The Stormreaver
3).  Elminster (Have to put him in here right?)
4).  Zawabi
5).  Fred and Joe Lantern (for curiosity sake)

I mean come on, who wouldn’t want to meet a real life dragon and learn about their ways and customs and watch their ability to shape shift from a huge dragon to a humanoid form.  The Stormreaver would be an interesting one to meet, to learn about all of his experiences and to gauge what wisdom he has to offer.  Elminster, well I don’t think there are too many people who are as smug as Elminster but he would be interesting to meet to say the least.  I wrote about Zawabi in a previous post and while I’m not sure of what his attentions are, I find him a fascinating character and would be really interested in meeting him.  And the last two, who wouldn’t be curious about meeting a friendly mind flayer?

What other NPCs would be interesting to meet?  Thanks for reading everybody!!  Safe questing!!

Although Erdrique has met a number of interesting NPCs in the game, meeting a medusa in real life isn’t one I would find to be interesting…
