Topic: Weird War II Q n A
Subject: alright

We'll stick to the plan you first opted, but after the last guard post we go a different route.

And I think there is no way to predict what our situation will be at that point, so there's no real point in waiting any longer.

I do agree on the briefcase however, and the captain will ask Romo to open it on the way.

I didn't want to put in another post in the game with only a few lines. I think we're ready to move on.

Subject: well

I don't see why they wouldn't guess we're not German if they start ordering us around after we're in. We need to get inside the perimeter with a ruse; after that it's a different story.

So, let's take this one step at a time, and focus on getting close to the Castle. We might be able to fake and bluff our way about when we're inside, but the wounded soldier, English captive medic is not something I would recommend to keep up. I'm too afraid they might shoot Doc on sight, or torture him for intel.

We'll go with your idea, Ody, but once we pass the last guard post (assuming there are any), we take a second guess. Is that ok?

To make it really convincing, Doc could claim to be German, take the dead guy's uniform, and we could ask Brutal to shoot him with the lady's crossbow.

Just kidding.

I like the plan. But I hope it won't take Doc out of the game, or separate the team. I'm sure these Nazis don't care about the Geneva Convention.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Sorry Ye'Olde, didn't see he offered it to the Captain.

Luke took a step back as Brutal flung the briefcase at his feet. He hadn’t noticed the man offering the thing to him and wondered if there were other things he was not taking in. Was the woman having an effect on him?
Her story was odd, to say the least. But it was so weird that he didn’t think she would make it up. She’d most likely make something up that would be more plausible if she was their enemy.

He cast the corporal a questioning look.

“Where’d you find this?”

He decided the briefcase would have to be opened later, since he didn’t want to waste time in reaching the Castle.

When they started changing clothes, he returned his glance at the doctor of anthropology.

“I don’t know what kind of magic the Germans think they have found, and if it is real or not. But that glow suggests there is something going on, and we have our orders. We intend to bring that Castle to the ground, no matter what is going there.”

Glancing around, he noted that most of them had changed.

“If everybody’s ready, we should move.”

Good one, Ad!

I think that indeed that past year has been fruitful in terms of new members. I don't know if you left anybody out, but I'm quite sure you did. All I can say is: if you were left out, don't feel bad, you are awesome too!

Here's to 2011 being a crown year!

Topic: Realms of Twilight -Winds and Sand
Subject: Touchy subject

The half orc let out a low growl, which made Argent cock one eyebrow and leave the man alone. Apparently it was something he didn't want to be reminded of. Still, the branding was a piece of the puzzle, and he needed an answer to get a better picture of what was going on here. Also, in his mind he still had doubts about returning these slaves to their 'proper owner'. It didn't feel right. He was sure that he himself wouldn't enjoy being branded. In his mind he was weighing possibilities but kept them to himself for now.

So, he took a few steps so he got closer to the half orc, and spoke in a low voice: "It's alright. I'll ask one of these other people."

And he did.

(OOC: Don't know what else to make of it. Argent will inquire about the brand and how people got them. Any information about who, why, what, when will do. )

Subject: Argent moves and speaks

With the combat at an end they were in a bit of a hurry. It wouldn't be long before more guards would show, and Argent remembered the people inside the office. They would surely alert more reinforcements if they had a chance.

So, urging the slaves to move if they didn't take the initiative themselves, he found his place amongst the group. Echo was already leading them away from the storage building, so Argent happily joined his brother at the back.

"A pity, to have to take so many lives to save others." He said. "You ok?"

Looking at the half orc he nodded his head as their eyes met. It was a silent inclination of respect. The man had proven to be a true warrior.

"I have to ask," he spoke loud enough so the half orc could hear him, "What is that brand there?"
He pointed at the mark on the half orc's skin.

"Captain with all due respect, concerning the German uniforms, it would be best if I portrayed the German officer as I’m the only one of us that speaks fluent German."

Luke nodded.

"Very well. Anybody else who favours a particular dress? I would advice Brutal to be the driver."

He turned to the man and continued: "You won't have to speak any language at all, since your would-be superiors will. But you'll be close to the action if it breaks loose. I'm sure you like that."

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: No time to waste

Luke ran to the window when the noise interrupted his chat with Miss Hoffstetter. He saw the sky turn an unnatural colour and cursed under his breath.

Are we too late? he asked himself.

Then, turning to the lady, he silently requested her patience with an apologetic look, and called his men.

“Alright men! Everybody get into the house, and we’ll talk business. Somebody just turned up the volume. I don’t know what is happening out there, but we better move fast.”

They did a quick recon of the items found in the house, to see what was usable and what wasn’t.

“Ok, looks like we’ve got enough clothes to make everybody look German enough. We take the car and get a little closer to the castle. If we’re stopped, or questioned, we are German soldiers escorting Miss Hoffstetter and her entourage to Rautenberg. Let’s go people. Hurry up!”

He turned back to Miss Hoffstetter and grinned.

“I really hope you are on our side, lady. For your own sake as much as ours. You can explain yourself further on the way.”

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: alright, here goes

“Miss Hofstetter? Pleased to meet you.” Luke said. “Our business as American soldiers in Germany should be quite clear. We’re not here to enjoy the German mountains and search for Edelweiss.”

He hesitated. Could he trust this woman? She had some kind of business in the Castle, and they would need her help. But he felt reluctant to tell her what their mission really was. On the other hand, if she was going to play them in any way the damage would be done. She knew of their presence. It would be better to tell her and anticipate a deception than beating around the bush and ending up confused.

“We’ve learned the Castle houses weapons of mass destruction; bombs that would be able to destroy whatever enemy the Germans have, including my home land. Now I know that most people don’t like a war, and I can tell you that I’d rather not see any more people die if unnecessary. So, you understand, we cannot allow those weapons to be completed.”

He was going to leave it at that, but his curiosity was triggered.

“What was your business at the Castle?"

Subject: #5? wow


That being said, I would vote against Tanis. I like it as a name for a fantasy character, but as a teacher I know that kids don't always understand names, and would make fun of a name that sounds the same as Tennis. (even though I would pronounce the name as Tah-nis).

Now, Tasselhoff... there's nothing holding you back on that one.

Subject: Argent's next action

After knocking one more guard to the ground, Argent felt the battle should be over quickly. They were wasting getaway time.

Quickly scanning for the whereabouts of the others, he spotted the next available guard and charged.

Subject: hehe

You can't really blame Luke's reaction to the situation, can you? He sees the Doc asking for water, Brutal saying he won't get some. I tried to let him fix things up a bit by asking Brutal to get the water, and implying that the Doc maybe missed things outside.

He isn't taking sides... he's just trying to work with a bunch of people who seem set out to dislike/distrust each other.

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: words...

Luke hadn't caught the words that had been exchanged between Brutal and Doc. Now Doc asked Brutal to get some water, and the Corporal refused, he knew something was up. Be it attitude, friction or whatever, he knew they didn't need it in their team.

So, in a no-big-deal kind of way, he said: "Get the man some water, Corporal. Gives you an excuse to double check if we're alone."

Topic: Realms of Twilight -Winds and Sand
Subject: Argent's wound

The battle was thickening, and taking longer than Argent had hoped for. These guards were tough.

The monk tried to focus his attention on his enemies rather than the throbbing wound he had received. He regretted having to take a man's life in order to save several. In the end, he told himself, it seemed these guards didn't have much respect for life themselves, firing away at the unarmed slaves. He pictured the command they had been given: Stop the escape at all cost.
It could not have sounded any other way, or maybe these men enjoyed strewing death around them.

He realized he was making excuses for himself, and found a calmness again in knowing that he cared.

"You can stop now and live." He called to the guards. "You don't have to die today."

If they react, he'll do his best to get everybody out safely. If they don't react, he'll be sure to kick the next guy before his action runs out.

Subject: So it seems

"So it seems, Corporal." The Captain replied with a friendly smile towards the lady.

"Now, get Doc in here so he can look after the Lady's cheek. I'm sure he'll be able to help it from swelling."

He turned back to the woman. He really hoped they could persuade her to help them out. By the Heavens, they needed some help here.

"How about it Lady? Why don't we start with proper introductions. I'm Luke. What happened here?"

Topic: Weird War II Q n A
Subject: I demand... a sacrifice!!

Actually, I intentionally didn't put any remarks about translation in my last post. It was a double effort to test the people around the Captain... first a test to see if the woman speaks any English, second to see if Romo would translate out of his own accord, which the Captain hoped for.

Anyway, it doesn't matter. What does matter is the way to the castle, and if Vanadia's character is willing to help them. I'm hoping the young lady can tell us where it is located.
As for getting in... there are a few options. How about this one: The young lady is being escorted by her driver (Brutal, won't have to do the talking, she will do it for him). They go to the castle because they found a wounded SS officer (Romo in disguise) and one of his soldiers (whoever in the field outfit, I prefer it to be the Captain, but options are open). They want to bring them to the Castle because it was the first place they thought of with the means to properly care for them (or whatever). If the trunk allows two people, the other two will go in there, otherwise we'll have a problem.

I didn't really want to go for the whole: we captured Americans scheme because that would most likely lead to us being captured for real.

Any ideas, or better suggestions?
