Topic: Welcome or Not!
Subject: Charade


"Hmm? I didn't know I had company."

The voice is Sen's, but it is that of her elven form. Stepping from underneath the foliage, Sen walks into the light. Well, no, to say that it's Sen implies that she's in her sylph form, which she isn't; she appears as she did in the first city, as an elven woman dressed in a blue gown.

"Who are you? I haven't seen you around here before." She asks, tilting her head at Arturo.

True, the charade might be unnecessary, but it was out of habit and her own reasonable paranoia that Sen decided to hold it. Besides, she didn't really know Arturo's motives, and it would do no good to risk much, especially at this point.

Topic: Auguries of Destruction: The Linsemptus - Q/A
Subject: Regarding Yin


Yin Chang is an npc, however, in this situation since Sibelius' character is shy (part of her character), I let Sibelius take temporary control RP-wise of Yin so that it wouldn't put Willow on the spot, but at the same time it wouldn't inconvenience the party.

Speaking of npcs... I suppose I'll have to come up with a list of the ones that are there. Well, I will when people are past introductions and are actually looking around the citadel/armoury.

Or, instead of a list, I could put up a large post regarding them if needed... there are certainly a few that will require in-game posts...

Well, I'll do that a bit later; PC-PC interactions come first

Subject: Assessment


Missiles are at 86.667% of capacity. That should be sufficient, however when we may be able to resupply is unknown. It is also unknown when the use of the missiles may be required; according to simulations, the requirement of the use of heavy armament is at a less than 10% chance. Kate quickly assesses. The best course of action is to enter outer space now. There is a greater than 85% chance we will be pursued at this point, and the longer we remain, the greater the chance increases that the number of fighters involved in the battle will be larger.

With that assessment recorded in memory, Kate quickly accesses the ship's startup routine to get the engines at least started.

Kate then yells toward Quilia, "Let's go!"

Subject: Whew... now where am I?


"Gotcha!" Linnix smugly murmurs as the goblin is impaled into a tree by her last shot.

Hearing the sound of the drum disappear entirely, Linnix quickly turns back toward the camp. Did that mean the source was already stopped, or was there something else behind it? Well, no matter, she'd just have to check herself. Linnix quickly retraces her steps back to the camp, specifically to the big tent, while drawing a dagger from her hip with her right hand, keeping a hold on her bow with her left.

"Alright, let's see who was beating that thing." Linnix murmurs to herself.

With dagger in hand, Linnix cuts a small (large enough for her to shoot through, but no larger than that really) hole in the side of the tent, and takes a look inside.

Topic: Inconceivable Crusaders Q&A
Subject: Hmm


I think you're taking it a bit too far; in the end when people post or even the order of the posts doesn't matter, for it's the initiative count that determines when each post occurs.

That is supposed to be the benefit of play-by-post, to be able to update when everyone has posted; who posts and at what time doesn't matter, for as long as it's all for the same round(s), the end result will be determined by the DM's resultant post.

Just because someone posted before you, especially for a combat situation where the initiative count is mandatory, doesn't truthfully mean anything until after the DM updates. Then, in that update, it shows exactly what happens.

Perhaps Drasarr does manage to run in first; in the event that causes something drastic to change, the DM will make an update specifically regarding that, and will have players post their reactions. Otherwise, it should just be considered that that occurs in the round.

Subject: Gamble, but what else is there to do?


"Are you really that stupid? I gave you more credit than I should have. I suppose it's true that you brought something, and so should be rewarded for bringing something..."

At this point, Jevaf's hands are closed around both daggers in her sleeves.

Jevaf raises her voice, so that it echoes around the cave, and hopefully outside, "Treachery is rewarded with death!"

Even before she finishes speaking, she pulls both hands from her sleeves and with a flick of her wrist, hurls the dagger in her left hand at the thief.

((Yes, penalties for overshooting range, but whatever. This following happens if Jevaf wins the initiative))

Even before her hand follows through with the throw, Jevaf already rushes forward, bringing her left hand across and smoothly drawing the rapier from its sheath at her right hip. Reaching a part of the cave where she notes it is easier to hurl the dagger and successfully hit the thief, she does so, flicking her right wrist and the curved dagger flies end over end horizontally toward the thief.

((Moving 30 feet of the 40 separating the two then hurling the other dagger))

Jevaf smiles, although there is no emotion in her smile. "I certainly have to commend you; that is a very fine fake you chose to provide. Do you take me for a fool? The master will not be pleased about this."

Subject: I don't know what you're referring to


If you're referring to the fact that ranged weapons bestow their enhancements upon the ammunition used by them, well, that's standard. You cannot have a ranged weapon that has +0 enhancement but some ability; that rule is also standard.

Please clarify; what you currently have written does not make sense to me at the moment.

Topic: Star Wars: The Outer Rim
Subject: So much to do, no droid can do it all!


They will be returning soon. Delay tactics need to be taken. Kate concludes, already wheeling toward the next console to open the hangar doors. Now to lock down the doors that lead to the hangar and set a lock on the lock down...

((So yeah... trying to give us as much time as possible by locking down the hangar, preventing access from inside at least; I can't close the hangar doors because we'll have to go through them in the ship))

Finishing that, Kate can only hope the organics moved at their highest potential to at least provide enough ammunition to the ship for the space battle that was likely, given her simulations. Still, there was one thing she had to do first, and so, zooming onto the ship Kate accesses a computer port on the ship itself and quickly diagnoses the ship, taking an inventory of its current weapons, as well as analyzing its weapon system and other components.

Topic: You Filthy Little Thief!!!
Subject: A Memory


At first Ocyari doesn't respond, but when Biensel looks over at her again while playing, he sees her eyes are closed, and her hand is lightly tapping the rhythm of the tune on the table. Perhaps it was just chance, or perhaps it was the atmosphere, but Ocyari feels nostalgic.

It's... familiar. Ocyari thinks, What was it?

A memory, no, it is too vague to be considered a memory. She just vaguely remembers the song, not the place where it was sung, nor who the singer was. It feels so, so distant. How did the song begin? It is only a blur, a shadow of a memory, she needed something to shed light on it. She waits. Then, when it seems as though she would just give up, Biensel plays the introduction.

That's it. Ocyari thinks, and takes in a deep breath.

Nani ga utsurutteiru no darou


The first stanza sounds almost tentative, although it isn't from hesitance on Ocyari's part; that's just how the song is sung, softly and gently.

Then, in the second stanza, Ocyari sings with a stronger voice, bringing more emotion into it. It sounds almost gentle, but no longer soft, as though she is trying to pierce even the coldest heart there.

Immediately after the second stanza, Ocyari begins the third with the same voice, although the tempo begins to increase, as she passes through the fourth stanza.

There is a pause, where the song slows, and Ocyari sings the fifth stanza with the same softness as the first.

After this Ocyari pauses, and Biensel fills this gap with a contemplative solo of his lute.

The sixth stanza then is sung, beginning with the same tentativeness as the first, but then swiftly moving into the moving flow of the third and fourth, as she sings through the seventh as well.

Then, once again, the song becomes slower, as it reaches the finale, with Biensel playing lightly on the lute. Ocyari sings the last lines gently, only just pushing the last 'ou' before it fades, and the song fades shortly after that with a few last notes of the lute.

Ocyari smiles since she did well, but a couple of tears flow down her cheeks.

Why am I crying? She wonders, brushing them away.

I know it's a slightly a sad song, but that's not the reason...

((Since it doesn't look like anyone has the language of Fey as one of their languages, I'm not going to translate the pretty song ))

Twin Lightning watches as both Kusardo and Kimono log out.

"Their first day in the World, and they're already involved with the things hidden in the core of it." Rei murmurs, looking at Kiku's stricken form, "You more than them."

"There's nothing I can do here." Rei murmurs to herself, "Recover soon, Kiku, and be careful."

With that, Twin Lightning wanders over to the platform, and warps back to town.

The price had been brought up, but Jevaf paid no heed to it. Why should the party give up anything on behalf of their employer if their expense may not be covered? However, as the thief brought forth the air of an exchange, Jevaf caught the mistakes. The three sided plan unfolded in her keen mind, and so she moved onto the next step, which was to have the painting revealed.

"Perhaps I do, and yet, perhaps I don't. Just as you perhaps hold the item to exchange for it, or perhaps not. How is one supposed to tell if it is covered?" Jevaf says softly, her voice betraying no emotion, because in truth she felt none.

Heading after the goblin, Linnix quickly spots its path, trying to find it as it heads into the distance. No you don't! I can't let you get away! I can't fail! Linnix thinks frantically as she draws back her bow and fires another shot after the running goblin, hoping to fell it.

The drum in the background, despite being a slow beat, sets Linnix's heart racing. She had to stop it, but it might already be too late...

Jevaf knows this thief is an amateur, but isn't going to be stupid about it. Depending on how the situation presents itself, she'll move onto the next step as required.

The damage had been done, the enigma had vanished, and now all there was left was questions to be asked, and answers to find.

Lying, crumpled upon the ground, is the form of Kiku. Across her character's graphic are bizarre patches of missing colour, replaced with white noise, static, which is able to be heard through the FMD. Yet, strangely, she isn't dead, as is evident by her shivering body and rapid breaths, almost as though she were hyperventilating. She just lies there, as though in shock, and even though Kimono and Kusardo rush toward her, her eyes don't seem to register them. They just stare blankly ahead.

"All right," spoke the player through Kusardo in a mild tone, "what's the big deal, here, huh? Why does Maera want her?"

Twin Lightning runs over as well, examining Kiku's body carefully. "This is bad." Rei murmurs, "When a monster is Data Drained, there are little side effects unless they are Protect Broken, and in that situation their data is just rewritten to something that is either of a lower level or killable. However, when a Player Character is Data Drained, the player could lapse into a coma for a short period of time, and their character can have status ailments inflicted upon them as well as hp and sp loss, possibly enough to cause character death. But, when a Player Character is Data Drained after being Protect Broken... well, it's impossible to determine all the possible consequences of it."

Twin Lightning looks over at Kusardo, "If Maera was right, in saying that Kiku can carry the Eighth Phase Corbenik, well... the power of that Phase in particular is enormous, capable of making the entire internet perform a complete restart; its full power, like that all of the Phases, is unknown, although Corbenik in particular seems to hold the most potential. Maera seems to want that power to be available. For what purpose, well, I can't even try to guess."

Twin Lightning turns back to Kiku, examining her, "Her character data is very unstable right now. We should leave the area just to be sure that our remaining here doesn't negatively affect the data's stabilization." Rei says solemnly.

Topic: Auguries of Destruction: The Linsemptus - Q/A
Subject: Scrolls...


You could probably bug one of the High Wizards about scrolls, after bugging one of the guards stationed at the entrance to the hall about the whereabouts of them.

As for healing areas, that's actually near the base of the clock tower, in a small chapel. It's just a small place, not really designed for large gatherings or anything, but for some reason, healing magic seems to be amplified there...

Also, Kaelyn brought up another type of item that is available

Ammunition: Any form of ammunition can be imbued with magical 1 time bonuses of 1d6 (fire, ice, electric or acid damage) Up to a maximum of 30 projectiles a player. (it should be noted these do not make the projectile count as magical for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction, though the elemental magic applied would effect creatures with said reduction minus resistances etc.)

Calculated item prices regarding teleportation:

Scroll of teleport (CL 9): 1125gp
Wand of teleport (CL 9, 50 charges): 33750gp
Wand of teleport (CL 9, 1/day): 6750gp
Wand of teleport (CL 9, 2/day): 13500gp

Of these, only 1 wand of teleport (CL 9, 1/day) and 7 scrolls of teleport (CL 9) are available

You can try to haggle the prices too if you wish

"Sounds good to me. I'll do my best!" Linnix says with a smile.

"If it means anything," Linnix adds, "I definitely find it's much better to use a bow than a hand crossbow. At least you don't have to worry so much about loading it."

Subject: Alright...


Way to put the spotlight on me btw...

Anyway... there's a couple of things I'll need answered before I put up my post.

  1. I'll need the description of the thief. In particular, does he appear armed, and how does he look? Agile? Muscular?
  2. I'll need the description of the painting as would be told to us by our employer.
  3. I'll need a bit more description of the cave. Is it just a dead end where the thief is as far as I can see? How many places are there for others to hide (considering a potential ambush)? Etc.
  4. Also, I need positioning. Exactly how far away is the thief, etc.


I think that's it for now... and then I'll post the next step

Cindi moves subtly, placing the card back in her backpack before grabbing it.

"I have no reason to remain here." Cindi murmurs toward Delilah, and although the sentence is vague, the tone implies an underlying sense of agreement.

Cindi fluidly closes the backpack and sets it upon her shoulder. "Let's go."

Subject: Advents and Preparation


So it was that the warning had finally been realized. Immediately on the morning after the Twilight, notices could be seen displayed around poster boards and other noticeable places in every city. They are ornate pieces of work, appearing as though they were written upon marble with molten gold and a silvery edge. Just because they were short of time certainly didn't mean the Council and the High Wizards were going to not put their all into the campaign.

Yes, indeed it is a call for recruitments. The Council's words upon the notice are clear in that people are needed, and yet it is also clear that this campaign would likely hold a grave deal of danger; they are not so deceitful when it comes for needed self-sacrifice. Also upon the notice is a clear need for volunteers for an advance party, one which may attempt a strike at the source of Venerro before things escalate out of hand.

Thus, two days after Twilight, the advance party finally meets at the core of Wanqir, within the main hall of the citadel of the Council, and before them stands the members of the Council, garbed in the same attire as Dusk saw them in just after Twilight. The hall is an elegant piece of architecture, crafted with marble pillars, inscribed with aesthetic motifs and designs. The hall is lit by beautiful chandeliers of gemstones and crafted with high quality wood. The walls are also made of carved marble, and the floor is made of a strong, durable wood.

"As the representatives for all of Tiancann, we thank you for coming." One of the Council members says.

"This event has caught us by surprise; if we were more alert, perhaps we could have foretold it. But alas, we did not, and so we are unprepared. As such, the armoury available to us is insufficient for what you likely will require." Another member says gravely.

"In all honesty, we never thought to prepare for conflict and combat; recovery after the storms and natural disasters was put at the highest priority, and war was something that was unthinkable at the time."

"However, that is enough about what could have and what should have been done; right now only the future and present need be considered."

"The Scout will be here momentarily. In the meantime, we suggest you all get to know each other. Learn each other's strengths, where you can find advantages, and even downfalls, where you learn to support each other. As you are all here, you all share the same mission; it is only natural that you all should come to know each other to do so in the best way possible. You may also take a look in the armoury, which is located down the hallway to your left, through the open door."

With that, the Council retreat to their own chamber, undoubtedly where they are planning for as many outcomes as is likely and possible, for their murmuring voices can be heard even out here in the main hall.

((YAY! PC to PC interaction finally! Also, in the armoury are common weapons and armours of up to +2 enhancement. Uncommon weapons, special materials, and higher enhancements need to be specifically sought after, and won't necessarily be there. Later on, I'll list the NPC's that are also there, but for the moment just consider them taking in the architecture of the citadel or examining weapons in the armoury.))

"Well, that isn't very nice." Reralae murmurs aloud, setting down her quill and waiting for the few paragraphs she's written to dry.

Reralae's hand is raised to her mouth in her typical thought motion, and she sits quietly for a moment, just thinking.

Lowering her hand, Reralae begins, "Well, who would we know that would most likely steal it? Grugg is a possibility, and last I saw him, he was in the Whom Gods Annoy room considering an update. Hmm, I'm afraid I can't think of anyone else offhand."

Reaching down, Reralae picks up her staff, "Well, I'll be back in a moment; I guess I'd better do some updating."

With that, Reralae leaps up the stairs and is lost from view, leaving her books on the table as another indication that she will return.
