Topic: Weird War II Q n A
Subject: Your call

I've both made and taken over. (Corban was not originally my creation, but I'd like to think he has become so.)Whatever you think is best for the game, I'm just ready to figure out what sort of fiend the waxy lady is.

Hmmm....that is 3 of the 4 road tames and the only home team I picked was the Vikings, who I don't really think will win but I can't bring myself to pick against. That does seem odd.

That seems like the best reason I have ever heard for missing games. Ok, you win. Maybe not the pick 'em game I suppose, but life, and that seems a bit more important.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: If it looks unnatural it probably is

As the group moved to the door, Corban held his usual position in the rear. He'd watched the rear as they searched and moved through the barracks. Now he watched the rear at the new room. But it was never wise to be completely ignorant of what was in front of you. So he glanced into the room and saw the waxy woman and the statue.

Crud. He'd been enjoying the empty rooms. But it couldn't last, could it? Why would she be prostrate on the ground when clearly a fight was taking place in her temple? Who was she? What did she hope would happen? And the waxy skin - vampire? When something didn't look natural in a place like this experience said it probably wasn't.

He heard his commanding officers polite comments and lightly chuckled. Legends always spoke of the devil as a smooth talker, was he (she?) also susceptible to sweet talking? They would find out. He held his position at the door they entered. He'd let someone else watch the other door, he watched the events in the room, but kept one eye on the way they had come. As always, nothing would come on them unawares from the rear.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Best of intentions

As the player who made the first comment leading towards inter-party conflict, I want to stress that in no way were my comments ever intended to be anything other than roleplaying. I also never thought the comments would be something that Lothor or the party couldn't overcome. I was aware that it might ruffle feathers a bit, but I didn't think it would break anything.

Anyway, I hope nothing was broken. I enjoy the game, enjoy Lothor and enjoy the others in the party. Merry Christmas to everyone and Party on!

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: We move on

Lothor listened as Cor gave voice to the thoughts that had been in his mind. He was a bit surprised to hear them - he thought the stoic dwarf would do as he had and hold his tongue for the duration of the quest. He understood where he was coming from, but did not want the quest fractured.

In an attempt to keep things moving he moved forward and simply said in his warrior fashion, "we move on." But he was glad when Roan and others spoke up about the need to keep things together. They were right about that. And they were also right about all of the times that Sirene had had his back in the past. Her words still made him uncomfortable, but perhaps he had overreacted. Certainly he could give someone who had done so much, and with whom he had gone through so much, a little slack under the circumstances.

He looked at both Sirene and Cor and placing a hand on the shoulder of each spoke softly. "We hold together - for everybody's race, and for the races not even represented among us. The fate of those in the pit was decided long before we got here, but the fate of the future and all those in it is yet to be determined. I would stand with and for dwarf, elf, human and Halfling. Come, let us continue the quest we have already carried so far together."

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: A dark glimpse into a dark place - what matters most to you?

"Know this dwarf, it is only preservation of time that stays my hand not your precious mission. Your mortal world means nothing if the cost is elven blood. I would let it all go to dust to free them, and that I would do with joy. Now steer this boat away from the mine, before I change my mind."

Lothor listened, stunned, as Sirene spouted these words. As she spoke he had to restrain himself – every instinct he had wanted to walk up behind the thing, smack her upside the head with the flat of his sword, and toss her unconscious body down into the pits to the slavers. But he didn’t. He needed her and understood that sometimes one needed to control their emotions and deal with the unthinkable. What commander had not watched while some of their troops were overrun, unable to send reinforcements because the larger battle demanded those troops elsewhere? He hated slavery above almost any other form of evil, but this mine was a battle, and they needed to fight the war.

But did not Sirene, no inexperienced child herself, have such reserves of calm under fire? He understood, or thought he did, the hatred which the appearance of the Drow and their elf slaves generated in the witch, but it didn’t explain her comments. No, he feared this was no simple outburst in response to emotion – this was an ugly glimpse at her soul. A glimpse at what mattered to her. A glimpse of her true loyalty.

She would let the entire world go to dust to save one elf life? Was this not a quest to save the world? And not just for the elves, but to save it for everyone. One did not need to be in the pay of the enemy to be a danger to those around you. You just needed to have other priorities – and to value some lives more than others – to be willing to chuck the mission and the greater good for some personal goal or vendetta.

As the party prepared to move on Lothor simply said, “We keep moving.” He did not look at the witch lest his eyes betray him. This “mortal world” was what mattered to him, even if she could be callous about it. The woman of faerie did not appear to have the same priorities as the rest of them. He still needed her and perhaps their goals would continue to prove compatible. But he doubted he would ever trust her again.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: NOW do you want to mess with time?

Normally a character or mine isn't going to bypass a slaver operation. Some things just aren't acceptable. However, in this case we have two other problems:
1. Some people in the party seem to think messing with history is a bad thing.
2. The fate of the world depends on our ability to do a different job. Getting killed on this one would seem to make the whole "saving the world" task a bit harder. Priorities?

It pains me to say it, but shouldn't we just sneak by and move on out?

Neither a football jock or a female are close to reality, but that is why we call it role-playing, right?

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: to compass or not to compass

I think it depends on the weather. If the weather is nice we should be able to use the sun to navigate as easily as a compass. If it is cloudy we (may not want to sail) may need a compass. So maybe we can save the scroll.

Ok, I could do either character. It seems if the female is taken, I'd be a jock.

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Sailing away

Lothor can certainly use his direction sense and try to captain the boat.

before I post, however, my usual collection of questions:
1. What sort of boat is it? I'm guessing we have a sail, but am not positive. I would make use of that if possible.
2. Weather - GM, this is for you, I guess. Will we need to do something to get some wind?
3. Who wants to man the oars - if we have them. Oddly, the big man may not be the best choice if he is trying to keep an eye out for things as temporary captain of the vessel. Then again, with eyes in the sky, maybe he can. But using the wind is probably better - although both might make it faster.
4. We can stay close to shore - which risks being seen and attacked by shore based creatures or pirates. Or we can go out of sight of land - which would probably have different risks. I think I'm inclined to stay near shore, but am open to suggestions.
5. To armor or not to armor? Armor = protection when something attacks us. Armor = sink like a stone. We have a lot of people wearing a lot of metal.
6. Right now we seem to be assuming that we made it to the other side of this island without incident. GM - is this a fair assessment? Should we be planning our little sailing vacation already?
7. Seven is supposed to be a lucky number so there might as well be seven questions. So, what is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?
