Topic: Bring Me That Horizon Q&A
Subject: A question of order of command

By the way - I made an error in my post by typing to fast.  Wylie refers to my character, Cracker.  I accidently referenced Shark tooth that way once because I changed around in mid post how I was handling the situation.  Anyway, you copied me and kept calling him Wylie.  

My question - If not directly to the captain, who is the proper person for William "Cracker" Wylie to give his information about the town and ships to?  Now does not seem to be the right time, so he might seek out whoever would  be the next bet.  And not the other Ms. Cole, either, obviously.  Is there someone else?  

FYI - My post will be to accept the assignment ot find Cole - but ask if he can commandeer some men to take into town to look.  Assuming she says yes, he will go on deck to do so.  At that point I'm assuming he will learn of her return from those who saw her come back.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A helpless feeling

Lothor stood a bit to the side of the others.  They had spread out a bit so that they wouldn't all die in one blast of firey breath.  Great.  He'd watch his friends burn before he died. Or maybe he'd be the first to burn and they would briefly feel grief for him.  But  whatever it was, this did seem like a bad situation.  Had they ever been in worse?  Liches, normal dragons and such all seemed modest in comparison to this . . . monstrosity.  

He shook his head a bit to clear the dangerous and depressing thoughts.  Yes, the thing was massive, but there was no use giving in to the dragon fear.  It had a heart and if that was the case, it could be pierced.  Somehow.  But for now all he could do was to stand here and listen to Cor try and talk with the creature.  'Dragon of the Gods?'  Well, Cor was a cleric of a god.  Seemed like a fair match.  

Lothor stood and listened and tried not to let his mind wander away during what could easily be his last moments.  But then these were moments that were actually prior to all of his previous moments.  And that was kinda weird.  Was it possible to die before you were born?  That should be a paradox, right?  

'Stop it!' he said to himself.  Focus!  He focused on the dwarf.

Subject: For those who wish to draw

Borborybodboddynock is pretty much finished.  If we are posting characters here I will do so once I get a final ok from the Dark Lady.  I do have some writing to do still on the backstory, I guess, but everything else is ready to go.

Should anyone wish to create an image of the little rascal, his description is below.  


Appearance:   3’  (short even for a gnome.  About 36 pounds.)

               Borborybodboddynock is small even for a gnome and still fairly young at only 39 years old.  People who meet him would not be shocked to learn that he is a druid, but neither is it obvious as he does not walk around with sprigs of mistletoe in his hair.  His hair is bright orange and flies out in all directions, not because it is unkempt but because that is just what it does.  He does comb it and it is not a mass of snarls or tangles, it just isn’t very controllable.  When outside it is usually under a wide brimmed hat.  His skin is a fairly light brown – he is not naturally overly dark, but has spent a great deal of time outside.  He wears leather armor and typically has a shield slung across his back and a scimitar at his waist.  His clothing and armor are always of a blend of browns and greens, although he is more than willing to put on a bold splash of color when in town and celebrating.  He has a waterdrop shaped amulet around his neck made of oak.  Sometimes it is outside his tunic and sometimes inside.  In general, he gives off the impression of a common traveler with a big smile and a glint in his eye.   He doesn’t try to attract attention, but frequently does anyway.

Kheric has no problem with others taking the lead - just as a note - he has an 18 charisma and 8 skills in diplomacy.  Of course, he is also rather arrogant and has pale skin and fangs.  Just to let you know for future negotiations as I suspect this will not be our last interogation.

Topic: Crisis in Chandar QA
Subject: Good cop/bad cop

Adolfo looks rather forlorn in his cell and may respond better to kindness then anything else.  However, despite the fact that Kheric has taken a lead so far in asking questions, I think someone else should play the initial role of good cop.  Kheric has a very high charisma and a lot of skill in diplomacy, so maybe he should be the good cop.  But he is also a dhampir with notable fangs and a healthy does of arrogance.  While his skill is not intimidate, I think intimidate and diplomacy compliment each other pretty well.  (Only the DM can tell) He isn't naturally a 'bad cop,' but diplomacy is not always a soft sport.  (As our elf will apparently soon find out.)  He might be the best bad cop in the group.  Then again we have something called a 'ratman' in the group, so I may be wrong.  thoughts?

Subject: One more Q before we hit the cell

As they moved to the cell Kheric asked the captain one last question.  "I get the feeling there is no 'usually' with this drug, but how long does it usually take for someone to come out of its embrace?"  Upon hearing the answer, he realized he had yet one more.  "Has Adolfo been told about the injuries he caused the other man?"

Topic: Bring Me That Horizon
Subject: A cowardly Shark at that

Wiley listened to the other sailor explain how he had been to afraid to speak to the captain about what he had seen and shook his head.  He looked Sharktooth in the one-swollen eye and cussed.  "Not your place?!  You fool!  You are a part of this crew."  He kept his voice low so nobody else would hear, but Shark Tooth could have no doubt that the Boatswain was angry.  "Your PLACE and your DUTY and your REASON FOR BEING ON THIS SIDE OF THE WAVES is to help make sure that this ship and the rest of its crew stays secure.  That does not just mean running a gun crew and getting in brawls, it also means making sure that the captain has the information she needs to make the decisions that will keep you, me and the whole ship safe!  You don't think knowing the First Mate is running is vital?"  

He started to turn away, saying, "You had better hope your name does not come up . . . " when he stopped.  He turned back to Shark Tooth and smiled.  "No.  I didn't actually see anything besides the First Mate and your sorry arse running through the streets.  But you know more.  And the captain needs to know EVERYTHING.  You will come with me.  Now.  We are not waiting for Ms. Cole to return."  

(Assuming Sharky does go with him since, I believe, Wiley outranks him.)

He pushed Wiley ahead of them and they headed towards the Captain's quarters.  When they got there he knocked on the door and waited for a response.  

(Assuming this is the correct protocol and assuming an answer along the lines of 'enter.')


William Wiley removed his hat and held it in his hands as he entered the captain's chambers.  He was followed closely by a very nervous Shark Tooth who seemed to want to stay behind the boatswain as much as possible - and even in a captain's chambers there wasn't much room on a ship to move around.  "Captain," he said with a dip of his head.  "I'm thinkin' you probably already know, but it seems information you would want . . ."  He hesitated for just a moment to make sure he got the words right before plunging ahead.  "It seems our First Mate might be in some trouble with the local authorities."  

He paused a moment to see what reaction his words received from the tempramental captain.  

(Assuming that she doesn't stop him and/or gives some indication to continue . . . otherwise he would stop.)

"Just a bit ago I saw The First Mate and SharkTooth here running through the streets. They  ran like someone was after them.  I don't know what happened, Captain, but they ran.  After just a bit, Sharky and I were ordered back to the ship and she ran on.  SharkTooth here might know more since he was already with her when I caught up.  I came straight here."  With that he turned to the very nervous Sharktooth.

**(All of the above assumes the captain is alone in her chambers.  If she is not he would begin with "Captain, I might have some information on the First Mate that you should hear."  If she seems to indicate that he should go on despite the presence of someone else he will follow the tact above.  If it is someone not from the ship, he will say, "Now might not be the best time," with an indication of his head to say why.)

Topic: Crisis in Chandar
Subject: Magic Candy for all!

Kheric listened to the captain answer his questions.  The guy made a positive impression.  His answers were straightforward and to the point.  He didn't object to questions.  Good.

"This Adomo Ulfa . . . is there anything else you could tell us about him?  If we are going to interview him, it would seemhelpful to know as much as we can.  Has he been interviewd yet?  How did he ingest the drug?  What did he actually do while on his 'violent high?'  He worked at the mill - any previous problems with the law?  Any family?"  

He also took the time to examine the drug.  Colorful crystals.  'Magic candy' seemed a good name, but a curious one given that magic really did exist.  "Magic candy, captain?  Am I correct in assuming that Flux is not, in fact, magical, but rather alchemical?"

Do not be sorry about asking questions.  How else will you find out?  There is no reason you would know and, honestly, every GM does it differently.  I've been at the Inn for awhile and don't know how that will be handled in this game.  Also, speaking as another character whose life may depend on your character getting things right - please ask!  I don't wanna die!

Now that we have 4 of us around a table, how do we want to handle that converation?  Castle probably wouldn't normally have just come out and said that he saw the letter get dropped off, that is valuable information.  But to get things moving I did.  Is this another chat it out in PMs moment?  Or just as quckly as we can by post?

Subject: together at last

Castle opened the door for Haze and followed him in.  As they crossed the first floor to the stairs he took the lead.  He had a general sense that the kid would feel less nervous if someone older were there to make him look legitimate.  As he climbed the stairs he couldn't help but wonder what the kid had seen.  More than any kid his age should have to witness from the sound of things.  

When they reached the second floor he moved over to the table where the priest and another man stood.  A biker from the look of him.  Interesting.  "What can I do for you?" the priest asked.  

Before responding to the question, Castle turned to the kid and said, "Why don't you get some of the food and then come back."  It was, after all, why the kid was here.  He then turned and responded to the question.  "Hey.  I'm Alex.  I was here for the meeting earlier.  As have others here, I've seen the Man in White.  And I saw when that envelope you have got dropped on the table.  I'd be curious to see what is in it."

Subject: Spells and such

I was looking at spells for Bory and while I do plan on taking goodberry - I was not planning on using either Cure Wounds or Detect Magic for his other 1st level spell, instead opting for entangle.  But depending on the party makeup, I'm not sure if that is a good idea.  Will someone else at least have the detect magic bit covered?

Subject: What is in a name? A Bory by any other name . . .

Ok, so I admit I might have gotten a bit carried away by the name.  First I decided I wanted to make a druid.  Then I had to figure out the race - I tend to run humans and I didn't want to do that here.  So an elf?  Kinda bland.  So no.  I settled on gnome, even thought they tend to be tinker and rogue types.  So now I needed to figure out who this gnome was that he would love nature as much as most gnomes love gadgets and alchemical stinks.  And the name.  Names can tell  you a lot.  So I got to thinking about names.  And gnomes can have a lot of names.  And it grew from there.  Well, the first name grew and grew and then the other names multiplied and pretty soon you had . . . .


Borborybodboddynock Eric Heatherplanter Ezuri Badger Packmaster Rootwalla Meadknocker Waterknott Daergel

(The order doesn't really matter as long as it starts with Borborybodboddynock and ends with Daergel.)

And yes, you can call him Bory.  If he likes you.   


Borborybodboddynock – It is a family name, ok?!  My great grandfather had that name when he single-handedly beat the ogre of the High Moors in one-on-one combat!  Not bad for a 38 pounder, is it?  It is a proud name, so take that, “Bob.”   (But you can call me Bory, most of the time.)

Heatherplanter – What sort of name was that?  There were stories about his other great grandfather and a young gnome lass named Heather that everybody wanted to get to know and great gramps won her hand.  And greatgrandma was named Heather.  At least one of her names was Heather.  But Bory wasn’t so sure.  There were always stories. 

Eric – What??!!  What sort of a name was Eric?  It wasn’t ‘Bob,’ but what else did it have going for it?  “Hi!  I’m Eric.”  How exciting was that?  Why’d they give him the name Eric?  But at least it was better than that boy down the road named Sue.  His father had really done him wrong.  Poor kid kept getting in fights.  But then, how can you not laugh when someone says, “Hi!  My name is Sue.”?  You respond with “Hi.  My name is Eric,” to let him know he isn’t the only one with a dumb name. 

Meadknocker – He’d earned this one early on when only a young lad and he had raided his father store of mead.  Honey and booze.  What was there not to love???!!   Yeah, he’d earned this one and had a few friends back home that still just called him “Mead.”  The thought made him smile.  And thirsty.

Ezuri – the legendary elf warrior.  Supposedly his great grandfather had fought with the great elf once upon a time.  He was beginning to wonder how many great grandfathers he had.

Waterknott – He’d been known to sit and stare at the swirls in the water for hours.  It fascinated him.  Nature.  It was almost like the other gnomes and their tinkering and chemicals.  He could stare at nature for hours and try to find the mystery in it.  It worked for a glass of mead as well.

Badger – kinda boring, but he liked this one.  He wasn’t sure if it was about when he raised those young badgers he’d found or about a personality trait, but either way it was kinda flattering in a stubborn sort of way.  Not all names can be as good as BorBoryBodBoddyNock. 

Packmaster – It was wolves that time.  Who didn’t think running a pack of wolves through the center of the village was funny?  I mean, come on!  You should have seen . . . ok, so a few things got broken, but they could be fixed!  Now those faces – they might be forever frozen that way!

Rootwalla – This was a personal favorite.  He’d earned this one.  He’d managed to make a wall of thorns and roots that saved several gnomes from some attacking goblins.  He’d had a scroll.  But ‘wall of roots’ really doesn’t sound great, so over a few mugs of mead the name had morphed.  He liked this one. 

Daergel – A clan name.  A good name.  Nothing interesting though.  Except the family history.  All those great grandfathers.   That was interesting and something to be proud of.  So a good name. 



Yes, the rest of the character is under construction as well.

A sketch of the gnome druid Borborybodboddynock would be awesome!  

Yes, that is a spoiler.  I'm working on him now.  Although I haven't gotten much past the names yet.  

Thnaks for the info on the magic - one last question.  It sounds like magic isn't so much suppressed as controlled or regulated.  Is that a fair statement?  So people can be be seen using magic - that alone won't draw suspicion, correct?  Also, the tatoo - it isn't always visible, is it?

Topic: Any Interest? 5e Homebrew world, dark and creepy adventures await!
Subject: Druids, the sisters and magic

The description about magic generally says "magic users."  I assume this means any and all magic users whether wizard, sorcerer, cleric or even those paragons of goodness and vitue, druids.  Correct?  Before I can get to far into the background and nature of the druid I am wondering what druidic groups might look like on the continent of . . . .(Can't remember the name - the one with Ghosttown on it.)  Do they usually register?  Are they usually or sometimes hidden?  I am envisioning a druid that uses the circle of the moon and makes use of wildshape a lot.  But that seems like a rather obvious use of magic.  I'm not against the semi-hermit type option either, I'm just not sure where groups of druids fit in.  Gotta have had a mentor at some point.

Subject: Kheric the Red

Kheric is posted in all his red glory.

A question - how big is this town again?  I'm just wondering how long it will take before they are known to most of the inhabitants and how fast news travels.  How quickly, for example, the various crimial elements and just the lazy ones will communicate.  Or if they might remain anonymous for a while.  

The game is afoot!

Topic: Crisis in Chandar
Subject: A starting point and a contact

Kheric looked around at the others in the group that sat listening to the captain.  It was not a large group nor was it composed of your run-of-the-mill humans.  Small wonder that a dhampir had not drawn the attention of the captain . . . the captain who had just finished his speech with the typical "any questions?" bit.

Kheric couldn't help but think to himself that there were far more questions then answers at this point.  They knew almost nothing about the job.  

"Captain," he started with a brief nod of his head.  "Certainly you know more then just that the drug is here.  What is it called?  How is it ingested?  What does it look like?  Having just arrived in town, as I believe have some of these others, "and at this he nodded at some of those who had shared the barge ride into town with him, "I know nothing of this problem.  Even these basic elements would be useful.  In addition, it would be helpful to have a starting point.  Could you give us the name of any known users?  Do you have any in custody at the moment?  Is there a tavern or part of town most associated with the drug?"

He paused for a moment, but before the captain could answer he added another bit to his growing list of questions.  "Also, these tokens which will allow us meals and rooms - will they also be recognized by others in town?  So that people will speak with us as representatives of the guard, but also so that those who are responsible will be able to mark us as guardsmen right away?  For that matter, is the Two Moons a guardsman's tavern?  Will staying there mark us as guardsmen?"  He wasn't actually even sure if the town was big enough that it mattered, but in most towns those on the wrong side of the law tended to know who the enforcers of the law were.  It might be to their advantage that at this point they were not yet known to those elements.   

He had more questions, for example, he thought there was some money still to be discussed, but he figured he should stop before the list got any longer.

Subject: Standing back and listening

Fixer listened as the group convered with their armed host.  He was glad to see that at least one other had picked up on the kindness bit.  Being a jerk usually didn't pay. Well, sometimes it did, but not often, and likely not with someone like this.  

But he wasn't the groups mouthpiece, so he stayed in the back and continued to look around the room while listening to the conversation.  Corporate law?  That was an interesting bit.  It didn't likely mean much, but it might mean the guy knew some interesting things.  He looked to see if there was a good way to get a glimpse behind the curtain into the room the "queen" had gone into, but he didn't want to push his luck.
