Topic: A Shadow Over Drasnia Q&A
Subject: Belated I know


Sorry it took so long to get up there, didn't notice this going on (too distracted by posting games lol...) and then was out all weekend. I will be more diligent I promise

Am enjoying this so far. We seem to be a fun little group of evil beings

I, unfortunatly, did post before reading this, is it too unlikely that she lives down by the docks, with that being Sea Snake territory? Or since she isn't full Hellkite yet would that still work? I really like the fish smell, which I imagine she carries around with her...

Topic: A Shadow Over Drasnia
Subject: Presently


Now she stood in Hydra's Breath listening to Dmitrova. Hydra's Breath was the only thing that actually made her enjoy this experience. The smoke, and the noise, and the smell of greasy food and cheap beer made her feel at home and at peace.
Dmitrova did none of that for her. He was an arrogant, badly dressed human, who thought he had some right bossing her around like this. Someday she would show him, but not today. Not that she was afraid of him directly, she simply knew that she was too low on the totem pole currently. And that any damage she inflicted on him would be returned to her ten fold, so she bit her tongue and listened to him.
She prefered to work alone, and he knew that, and yet here he was offereing her services to these other two as if it were completly normal. And the task, assasinations were not usually her thing, she prefered torture, but if it meant gold, and it meant power... she was in of course, unfortunatly.
Nyx stood next to her, this was his kind of work from what she knew of him. Assasination Prince right there. Assasination -Elven- Prince, just look at those ears. Full blooded, and proud of it, it made her want to puke on his shoes.
Then there were the twins, or twin, as she liked to think of them. They were not two people, they were one, that much she knew of them. And they too did not hesitate to kill, and to kill messily. To be honest they kind of creeped her out.
But perhaps with these other two she wouldn't have to do the actual killing, she could keep to getting them in and collecting the loot. And even if not... like she had said, she was in...

Topic: A Shadow Over Drasnia
Subject: Prelude: Two Nights Ago...


The smell of decaying fish covered everything. It no longer bothered her as much as it used to, she'd grown used to it. The boy, however, was not used to it and was currently trying not to vomit down his shirt. Cayrimsa cocked her head and looked at him, her face clear of pity for him.
The boy was probably no more than seventeen years old, a scrawny tanned human boy with dark eyes and hair that hung around his shoulders in a very attractive mess. He had given her his name, but for the life of her she couldn't recall it now. Now all she could recall were the words he had whispered in her ear. They rang out over and over in her head, until it seemed like he was screaming them against the rooftops.
They had met in one of the slimy bars that lined the docks, the boy was much too well dressed to have actually come from there. Silly rich boy wandering out for a night of fun. Well one of them was having fun at least.
Cayrimsa walked over to him slowly. Between gags he looked up at her, the fear livid on his features. When she bent down toward him, he struggled against the rope that kept him bound to the chair.
"Don't struggle so... I don't intend to kill you." She whispered with a smile.
"I know the smell is awful... but breath through your mouth and it isn't as bad."
"Look... please..." he started to stammer again but had to stop to keep the bile in his stomach.
"Shhh..." putting her fingers to her lips she shook her head.
Across the room was a table with a lantern on it, she beckoned with her fingers and the lantern slid off the table and glided easily to her feet. Reaching into the bag on her side she pulled out a round metal disc and set it carefully on the metal top of the lantern.
The boy strained against the ropes to see what was happening with the lantern.
"Nothing for you to worry about, yet." She smiled and put her hand on his shoulder, he looked at her and again his eyes widened and if it hadn't been for the smell probably would have screamed.
After a few more seconds the small metal disc, now glowing red, rose up to the boys eye level. Quickly she moved behind him, clasped one hand over his mouth and the other over his forehead to keep him still.
"Please, don't squirm..." She hissed in his ear as the disc swung toward his left cheek.
The boy did not listen and as she held him he writhered mercilessly against her and the chair and the bindings that held him fast. His voice cried out against her hand as the disc met with his skin, a sizzling noise filling Cay's senses. Then another smell, more nauseating than the fish rose into the damp air.
However he screamed and squirmed she held him tight as the disc burned itself into the soft skin of his cheek. But the moment did not last that long, she knew it did not take long to leave the scar she wanted. The disc fell off his face and hit the ground. Smoke rose off his cheek and she let go of him.
Immediatly he started screaming. However, she was not worried, screams in this part of town did not attract attention. Circling around him she took a look at her work. Burned into the flesh in black and pink was the Bedine symbol, the symbol they burned into the flesh of Elven slaves.
She sat down across from him and let him scream until his lung wore out.
There was no reason to kill him, in fact Cay did not particularly enjoy killing, she did not see the point. If she had to wake up every morning in this hell, and look at her face and see a face the world despised every morning they would have to as well. Death was mercy, and she was far beyond mercy. The boy would now live like she did, ashamed of his features, hating himself as much as he hated the world. That would be her satisfaction, that would be her revenge.
When he stopped screaming finally, his body sagging in the chair, sweat dripping from every inch of sweat and the fresh Bedine mark flaming off his skin as an angry reminder, she walked over to him.
"So... you've never been with an elf before huh?" She whispered to him, echoing his words from before.
"Well you still haven't been. I'm not an elf, and I suppose you'll remember that now won't you?"
The boy simply stared at her in disbelief. Was this all truely because he had called her an elf? But he never got the chance to find out for certain.
The chair slid toward the doorway, nothing more than a curtain held over the landing to the stairs, was titled forward and in a swift motion of her dagger the ropes were slit and he went tumbling down the stairs. She did not even wait to see him hit the bottom before draggin the chair back in and letting the curtain fall behind her. Depositing of her nights entertainment as she desposited the garbage.
"Someday..." She thought to herself as she went to pick up the medallion off the floor, "someday they will all remember that."

Topic: Help Lou Design a Campaign Setting!
Subject: Spectator


Just to let you know I am very interested in at least watching this process some. I have yet to DM something and am curious to see what all could be involved with it. I've been told that I'd be good at it, but have never really known where to start, so if it's alright I'll kind of tag along, and perhaps put in a creative idea now and then. Besides it seems kind of fun to see what goes behind the scenes in the game. Kind of like watching the "Making of..." special feature on a DVD

Subject: No Snooze is Good Snooze


It seemed like an enjoyable task, to escort the child princess Carisong from her Uncle's estate back to her father's house. On the third morning, however, the group awakens in Lyce Castle to find they recall little of the night, the princess is missing and so is one of their own, Mygrand. They soon discover that Mygrand has helped to spirit off the princess by poisoning the group to sleep through the night, and has delivered her to a local vampire coven.
It is now the task of the PC's to rescue the princess from these blood sucking demons, even it means forgoing sleep.

Coming Soon:
Chimera in Arms

While Jerry is adorable beyond belief and was cool enough to get to dance with Fred Astair... I must say that when it comes down to it I would have to try to save Tom from drowning before Jerry. I happen to be a kitty lover and also gotta cheer for the under 'cat'.

Would you rather have your sub cold or toasted?

As usual I try to find the positive side of all things. To be honest when the site popped up on my computer I was frightened to death... but then (after like twenty minutes, apparently my computer was frightened as well) it came up... and it wasn't that bad. It could have been much much worse... I was expecting more of a recruitment speech, and was pleased to see it was just egolamania (or however you spell that).
