Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Hang In There............


With grit and determination the Halfling held tight to the flaming enemy. Ulthok’s body racked with pain from a barrage of magic missiles; sheer luck keeping him from more serious injury. Refusing to disengage he hoped that the ongoing damage from the burning oil would continue weakening this foe.

Through the flames the mage saw two new attackers appear and he also realizes the shadows he had summoned were not being affective against the white armored guards. So as he clung to the howlers back to avoid the enchanted sword’s reach he continued his dragger attack and shouted to the shadows to attack the Hydras.

Subject: Me Again................


If you enjoy reading stories like The Lord of the Rings, which is pretty much where D&D came from, then you may enjoy this game style.

Here you get to write the story. Think of you might have done if you were Frodo or Strider. Try it and see what happens.

See my other post to question on "How the D&D game works". I think I answered so more there.

Topic: How the games like D&D work like and how the DM makes the stories?
Subject: Oh Ivan...............


Ivan.

I think you are either going to love play by post or hate it.

This is so much different from video play. You get to use your imagination to create a character with feelings and depth. Video games are reaction and eye-hand skills to react and if things go bad you just start over. In these games there are no do overs! You build on what has happened but you can't go back and try again. And your character can get killed. There are some worlds where a character might be raised and brought back, but not in all games. It those cases you may be able to create a new character, but it is different.

Think of this as writing a fantasy adventure novel as a gruop.

There are some rules in different games set to help guide you as what and how your character can do things. You get to live through this character and express thier feelings and ideas. I find copies of rule set to help me understand the world in which I will be playing. That said I am not a rules lawyer and I don't memorize everything.(Just ask the DMs I play for.)

As for the game and the DM. There are prewritten game stories with goals to achive available that help shape the game, but as character act and react the game never plays the same twice.

There are also some DMs that write their own stories and create whole worlds to play in. They present a situation and your character and the other respond. Now working together helps, so use of the Q&A section to talk to each other is a good idea.

I enjoy trying to write a good story as much as succeeding in the action I try.

Now speaking to that, you only get to say what your character is trying to do and how they are trying to do it in story form. The DM rolls the dice to measure your success and then writes the result in story form. It just keep going that way.

If you pick a game and read it from the start you will see more about what I am trying say.

So, your choice, play someone elses precanned video game or live the life of your character in your mind and in the story.

Hope you enjoy this game style.

Ody

I read Van's post that two were carrying Angela. So it was just how I saw it. I had intended for Jon and JC to risk moving Angela so she would not awaken in front of the passengers.

Topic: Characters and World of D&D
Subject: Welcome Ivan......


Hello......... Thought I'd pop in here and give the Ody welcome.

A really good place to start here is “Pit F(r)iend's epic guide to getting started for newbies.” That helps you figure out how to navigate the halls of the Inn.

To meet folk in real time pop into the DragonChat where I act as current resident bartender. We offer our very own "Good Old Froth-n-Slosh", the stale pale ale with the foam on the bottom.

Just grab a mug off the mantel and draw a cold frosty one.

My assistant Igor is usually lurking around if I'm not there.

He never says anything, must have something to do with having his tongue cut out by his last boss, that nasty bartender over at the Orc Bar & Grill.

I'll have him put out a plate of "Lady Fingers" in your honor.

Reminds me we need to have another "Ladies Night" and restock.

Anyway the Posting Games are great place to get to know folks and of course the DragonChat is our favorite lounge.

So lurk or play, welcome to the Inn

Oh and here's a nice soft fuffy towel, you may need this later!

I would think that Steph will be checking the remainder of the meat to determine what drug was used. She would want to be sure that there weren't any potential side affects. That said, when she hears that Angela seemed to remember a few fragments it could give her a starting point to try and unlock all of Angelas memories. When this current tense moment is past Jon will realized what she said and realize she had some memories surface.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: So Close...........


Jon scoped up Angela in his arms, her head lulled against his chest and JC stepped in to support her back. Gingerly but quickly the two whisked this female enigma from the galley. If they could get her to her room where her memory aids were before she woke her secret would remain safe.. and so would they.

But as was Jon’s luck just as they approached the tiny storage room turned Angela’s living quarters, JC’s prosthetic arm spasmed and then failed dropping her backwards. Instinctively Jon clamped his hold on Angela’s legs so as not to let her head fall to the gangway.

The shifting of weight of the falling body turned into a lightning speed move. His baggage specialist dropped to a handstand, back springing free of Jon’s hold and pivoting into a defensive stance with her back to the wall. An intense cold stare sized up Jon and JC, “So many memories, “ she rasped, ” They can’t all be mine..what the hell’s going on? ……Who the hell are you?”

Backing away and placing an arm across JC’s chest to keep the PR man from stepping toward Angela, “Angela..you are safe…I’m Jon Brown..your Captain!..You’re part of my crew.” He saw doubt on her face. “There is a journal in your room…in your hand writing.. that will confirm it. May I show it to you?” Jon kept his hands held high and plain sight, he hoped Angela would comply or that Grace would catch up. Grace seemed to have some kind of bond or understanding with this girl that he really needed now. The fact that Angela had remember something was lost on Jon as survival was the priority of the moment.

I am gathering that Jon and JC are carrying Angela whan JC's arm goes bonkers. So time to extend the scence. I'll try to get a post up by Sunday night.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: The Healer's Touch..........


The “Seeing” had showed no evil and that there was life in the bodies. But the life was not that of the Elven hunter but that of the mindless leeches that were encased it the flesh of the corpse. There was no evil to see for the leeches only searched for food. The evil was that of what ever had captured their friend, to use deadly yet innocent creatures to fulfill its treachery. Whatever they saw now was not to be underestimated. So as the body cases of the hunter burst on impact, splaying their vial contents on the party, a simple but effective trip was sprung. Ody felt the sting of leeches bite and the pain of their venom as it spread through his body. He watched as Max and Jar were felled and slipped into unconsciousness. The Shaman had been summoned to the party for his skills in healing, to keep the others alive. As it would be now and again on this dangerous journey he would have to choose who to aid first. Max was strong and was needed to defend them from charging enemies that were intent on rending their bones into the ground. Jar would call upon the magic to unseen force to provide a safe place for them to stand. ……….Making his way to Jar’s side the barbarian brushed the leeches from the exposed skin on the Mage's face and through his touch called upon Mother Earth to grant healing and renewal into the body of his companion. A summoning of Cure Serious Wounds asked for through the prayer to the one that gives life.

Twitchy????

Gee just because in another story the good deed turned into a rain of poisonious leeches, why would should we be twitchy?

Just because a cute girl shot Asher in the back and then tried to blow him up, why should that make up twitchy?

No Marshells around to vouch for us, nah.. no need to be twitchy.

We are doing a good thing to bring Havelock to his final rest.
So as they say, "No good deed ever goes unpunished!"

Topic: CWWLLO QnA
Subject: Low HP....


I was guessing the leeches would be low HP and fire or cold would work on them, but I too worried about the added damage to our party. With the CLW a touch of frost bite might not be too serious. I think we need to get rid of the buggers first before major healing. But JAr needs enough strength to be able to cast.

Al, is Ody's internal change concidered a move action or a regular action? The thought is he can 50% heal himself with the internal change and still cast a CSW on Jar in his round.
