Subject: Yeah, well, I did it anyway.


I’m putting this up anyway, dang it, even though Admiral posted before me. So whoever is next has to search for his citrus. PS~ I did it with less pages

I started with Gorditas Doña Tota

1.Mexico
2. Rodolfo Neri Vela
3.Cosmonaut

What a fun, slightly frustrating game!

Topic: Trilogy War Q/A
Subject: Another suggestion


I have a suggestion for our DM. You can choose what to do with it,Tann, but I have to get it out. The last combat round I was left feeling frustrated and useless due to outcomes in the DM post. Now, the posts themselves were just fine, but I had no idea why things weren’t working.

I am in a couple of other games that give players the run down as to what happened on the DM’s end in the Q&A section. Successes, failures, limitations with spells, etc. , but nothing too specific like “Celeste rolled a 4 on her Bluff Check”, but sometimes “Celeste missed her Bluff check by 1.”. I’m going to give a rundown of our last combat post as an example of what I mean.




Black Beaked Brain : successful hit with 6/10 hits.
Cor: Successful touch attack to Black Beaked Brain. Critical hit. Failed poison saving throw.
Rayne: Failed poison saving throw. Negative hit points and unconscious.
Cynil: Failed Will save (by 1!). Held in place for the next 36 rounds.
Conall: Two successful hits. Dispel aura ineffective against creature level.
Halia: Successful roll to get shield to Conall. Successful hit to Black Beak Brain. Critical damage.
Althena : Successful ranged attack. Critical hit.
Red Beaks: Retreat at 60 ft.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: Tess ~ Rum and Wine are not Friends.


The atmosphere had subtly shifted around the group as Norman Sellers sat down at the table. For the most part it seemed to have picked up in beat at the prospective client. Gracie, on the other hand, was looking mutinously at Mr. Sellers. Or was that Jason she was glaring at?

The captain wasted no time in getting down to business. He never did.

”Jon Brown, I captain that black beauty you were referring to.” Jon said smiling, ”You said you were looking for a fast ship, and I assure you whether you'll hauling casks or wine or outrunning a reaver boarding party, there's no ship you want save mine. Now I'm not sure why you need wine moved so fast, and I'm sure you can talk plenty about it, but I always found credits talk all for themselves, so what say we cut to the chase here. You give us a where, when and a price, and we'll get to makin' it happen.”

Well, that was a least a little better then Ken’s opener.

“Well that I can do and it is good to hear.” Mr. Sellers replied. He looked around the room again with that nervous glance, then spoke to the bartender who was coming up to the table. “Tony, can you get a bottle of the Bin 47 for us? Make it two and put it on my tab. Yeah, thanks.”

Sellers shifted his eyes around the room again. What are you waiting for? Tess casually brushed the side of her gun in a reassuring manner.

“You might as well taste what it is you are hauling right? Right? Or I hope you'll haul. Cause I need someone to haul it. Right?” His face was all smiles as he looked at each of them in turn. Tess mustered what she hoped was a convincing smile, although it might have been more like a grimace. “Whoa. Listen babe, whoever you think I killed, it wasn’t me. I make wine and that’s all. Grape stains only right?” He threw his arms open wide in what supposedly was a nonthreatening manner.

Babe?

It certainly looked like grapes to her, or maybe a little bit more then carelessness with a few bottles. She eyed his mouth to see if it might be permanently stained.

"WHAT did you just call me?" Grace said in a slightly high pitched voice. She was turning red.


"Look, Lao Buhn, I am not a babe. Nor do I like being called one. So, Lao Sheong , do yourself a favour and don't call me that. Dohn Luh Mah?" Grace’s words left no room for argument. Tess had to bite down on her fist to prevent her from laughing out loud.

The bartender arrived not a moment too soon, and Mr. Sellers wasted no time in pouring everyone a sample of his wine. The pilot was happy for an excuse to focus on something tangible. Her mind was still filled with laughter at the thought of Grace being called ‘babe’.

Norman relished in the aroma of the wine and then downs his entire glass. “Yeah – that’s a good batch. Anyway…where was I?”

Jason took a sip of his wine and said, “This is actually quite pleasant Mr. Sellers. As to where we were in our conversation…I believe that you were about to tell us about the cargo that you would like moved.” Jason, all confidence and smiles, was thinking about the possibilities of this new contact and the future business Norman might provide. If the job panned out and the crew performed well enough….this might turn into semi regular work and getting paid on a regular basis….that’d be nice too.

Ken remained quiet while he was drinking his wine. She was mildly surprised that he wasn’t going through it quicker. Deciding that it would be preferable to the rum she was drinking, Tess took a fairly large swallow and immediately regretted it. The wine and rum fought like cowboys and sheep herders. The flavor was pleasant, but she went from mildly intoxicated to drunk and sick to her stomach. She pushed the glass away from her and began to look towards the bartender.

“Right. Right. Okay. Right. You see, there is a lord on Osiris, good friend of mine actually. Well more of a business associate. Long time...yes. Baron Otello and I have had an arrangement for years where he throws this really big social event, you know like a gala, and he serves my wine. Cause it is the best in the Verse, that is what he says at least. I think so too but I have to be modest. I mean I spent a long time working out the acidity of the soil versus the natural climate of Greenleaf and how certain fertilizers are best used under the weather system that we have here …”

Tess got up from the table and walked over to the bar. The room wasn’t spinning yet, but rum and wine continued to do battle in her stomach. “Hey,” she muttered to the bartender, “could I get a glass of water please?” The talk at the table turned into a mix of Jason’s smooth talking and Mr. Seller’s continued babble. She began fighting the urge to puke right here at the counter when Tony slide her a glass of water. Sipping it gingerly, she made her way back to the table.

Jason was speaking directly to the client when she began to sit down, “One moment, Mr. Sellers, I believe that we can come to a deal but there are a few things that I’d like to clear up.” He wore an easy smile as he drilled Sellers, “What about any taxes or tariffs on the wine? Who is responsible for those?” Jason asked hoping that the answer wouldn’t be them; it’d certainly eat into the profit on this trip. “How many tickets for the party would you provide? Finally, who do we send the wave to so we can make sure you’re being straight up?”

Straight up? What?

“Well Grace, Tess, is Osiris in 9 days possible?”

Gracie spoke up first. Tess felt like she would have had an answer quicker, but the alcohol combination was doing funny things to her math. “As long as we don't have any problems, we can make it in about seven days. If we go at full burn, we can make it there even faster but we won't have any fuel left."

“I’d hate to go full burn,” Tess replied before she took another sip of water. Ugh, this isn’t helping either. “It always makes me nervous running Yuan Fen empty. Of course, with the proper incentives we could have her go full tilt boogey, but Gracie’s right. She’ll make Osiris in about seven days, provided we don’t have any trouble along the way.”

Did that come out right? she wondered to herself. Her face turned a delicate shade of red and she took another drink of her water.

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Cynil ~ Death's Sweet Embrace?!?


One step. Cynil took just one hostile step past Kenji. The red beak that was retreating waved its tentacles and she found herself stopped in her tracks. The elf tried to keep moving forward, but she felt oddly disconnected from her limbs. Maybe this is what Kenji was feeling. She tried to turn her head, but that didn’t work either. Her eyes were set focused toward the vanishing brains. After trying to call out to her friends, Cynil found that her voice was gone as well.

What’s going on here? Kenji could move a little bit and talk, why can’t I?” Panic began creeping in at the corners of her mind. A battle was continuing behind her, but she had no way of telling what was going on. Disjointed grunts, weapon slashes and the roar of Halia told her that at least some of her party members were still alive.

Am I still alive?

The sounds of fighting soon died out, and Alasdair’s voice was the first to speak. It sounded like he mumbled something before raising his volume and saying, “Maggot, do you think you can free our samurai friend from that sphere?"

Maggot’s response was soft, “I will see what I can do for our friend from afar, Alasdair the found.”

Samurai friend? Not samurai and druid friends? What’s going on?

"I think we'll have to recover a bit before attempting to move on,” Alasdair continued, “If nothing else, we need to recover our strength and see if our fallen companions are willing to return to their corporeal shells."

Dear Spirits, I am dead. Why haven’t I moved on? Cynil attempted to remain calm, but reason was quickly fleeing from her mind.

The old man’s form came into her peripheral vision, but she couldn’t get a good look at him. He began muttering to himself, “Yes, there are two. Seek for them and keep them safe and guild them if you can.” Maggot continued his musings to himself, and Cynil couldn’t understand half of what he was saying. It sounded like he was arguing with someone else there, but she couldn’t imagine who it could be.

“I know what I am to do”… “If we can help it they will not be staying long, now go find them if you can.” His body started weaving in and out of view as his talking grew more agitated. “Yes, I know what he said but then there is her and I can do it yes, But!”… “Look, you have your job and I have mine.”… “No, I can not do that! What does she have in her pockets?”… “That is why I cannot do risk it!”… “Well thank you. Now go and find them if you can!”

It looks like he can see me. Can he see ghosts? He is a mage, maybe he has magic that I know nothing about. He shifted out of her line of sight and began talking once more.

“At least you can feel your walls, there are some who never know what walls surround them until it is too late.” She heard him say, presumably to Kenji, “But we waste your time and theirs. Let that, that has been done be undone, Remove these walls from Kenji’s path.”

Too late?!? Onset panic filled Cynil’s brain. Desperate and not knowing how to react to the situation, the Druid’s emotions ran away with her. Hot tears began to leak onto her face, but she had not the power to wipe them away.

Topic: Realms of Twilight - A Journey Begins
Subject: Raina ~ Unusual explicatives


The battled continued to rage on in the air. Well, a one sided battle at any rate. Wings flapped erratically as the weight of another continued to weigh down the wyvern. Raina’s body swung underneath its body as she maintained her grip on both the wyvern’s ankle and her sword. Her mind struggled with options.

Not enough strength to move from this position. Too much distance between me and the cliff. Stabbing it might mean killing it, which would mean we would plummet straight to the bottom. I am screwed. She decided on retaining her grip for a while longer to see if the wyvern would either try to land, or get close enough to the top of the cliff so she go let go.

Above the noise of her unwilling mount, Raina could just make out the screech of the other wyvern. Her head swiveled towards the cliff edge to see if it meant that the others killed the thing, or if it meant that the wyvern had found one of its marks. As she craned her head around trying to get the ledge into view, the beast she was holding bent its neck and made to take a chunk out of her face. Her reflexes had saved her, barely. Raina jerked her head back and the wyvern snapped its jaws inches from her nose. Its putrid breath washed over her face, and the burglar found herself trying not to retch in midflight as sticky spit stuck to her.

As she wondered how she was going to get this nasty goo off of her face, the wyvern twisted around and hit her full in the back with its tail. Liquid fire spread across the point of impact, and Raina desperately tried to hold on. Her eyes slide in and out of focus, and she started spewing forth a slew of insults towards the beast.

“You back stabbing bag of rotting bird brains! You’re nothing but a filthy lizard that some poor wretch decided to give wings! You can’t even carry your own weight, let alone mine! You belong in some terrarium with nothing but bugs to eat! Better yet, you belong sliced up and cooked in my frying pan!” Her words were helping her to remain focused on her grip. But a cold feeling was coming over her as she realized that her fellow members weren’t moving to help her. Besides, what could they do?

”I will not die at the mercy of this flying iguana,” Raina thought savagely. She raised her rapier and aimed another strike at the wyvern’s underbelly, determined to take down the beast before it managed to take her out first.

Not to pry, but Kenji is carrying quite a few items unused (sheaf arrows, elven cloak and such?). I hope it doesn't seem like the newbies are going through a free for all, but shuffling things around to other party members might benefit us all in the long run.

Let's get these items that aren't being used out in the open and working for us!

Its short. Not nearly as much as the opening post, but I didn't feel like I had much to go on. Er... attack!

Wish I had Wall of Thorns prepared as a Druid spell. That list is so changing when we get done with this. Speaking of spells, why is it that the Druid has access to so much healing magic? Our 2.0 book says that they don't have access to that kind of magic.

I'm not complaining ~ it's nice, but I just... don't understand. (hah! Because that's unusual. )

Topic: The Trilogy War
Subject: Cynil ~ Go Go Bear Claws!


The deafening thrum of beating wings filled Cynil’s ears. The she elf could only surmise that it belonged to Halia, but there wasn’t enough time to check. The threat still loomed before her. Kenji had eradicated the black beak in front of him and it exploded in a shower of acidy blood. In the back of her mind, Cynil was mildly surprised that the spray missed her.

The red beaks seemed to be moving away from them; the magic that they cast looked odd coming from the weird brain-like creatures. Kenji stood immobilized – somehow Cynil didn’t think he was faking it this time.

There was only one thing to do. Weed out the root.

Cynil launched herself forward and aimed to strike the nearest red beak with her claws. She prayed to the woodland spirits that it would be enough to take it out.
