Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Flames

Xaris held Artanis so as to try and ea her pain. The gnome was genuinely concerned for his companion. Though hi timely arrival and potin had helped to heal some of her wounds, the pain would linger on for some time unless more magical aid could be sought. The stranger who had dragged Artanis and the child from the dangers of the collapsing building, handed the somewhat pacified infant back to his presumed mother and rushed off to see what other aid he could offer.

The woman who had grabbed for everyone’s attention in the first place finally broke through the crowd to Artanis’ side, her eyes awash in openly flowing tears; a mixture of sadness for her losses but overwhelming joy for the safe return of her daughter Maribelle.

“Thank you, oh thank heavens, my Maribelle.” She quickly plucked up her child clutching it to her breast, cooing at her daughter and looking around before another realization sank in. “Oh Mr Wuggles, and oh my god the others!” The woman notied the tears running freely fom the warrior woman’ face, but could find no words of encouragement. She stared with lost eyes on her and Xaris for but a moment, before turning away in silence to slip back into the crowd.

Talus approached the member of the fire brigade, requesting additional wands; unfortunately he only had the one, as Castle Tethyr had not seen a blaze of this magically enhanced nature in many years. It was heartwarming to see however, as townsfolk began to arrive with buckets, cups, barrels and every item capable of holding water, They gathered in a line tossing what meager help they could over the burning building, while the wand wielder continued to douse the rooftop and escaping gouts with his create water spells. Despite a diligent effort, the blaze would burn for another hour, and use the entirety of the wand before the flames eventually consumed themselves, and all that was left was a billowing pillar of dark smoke into the early morning air, serving as a beacon for miles around that signified the loss of life and home within.

I hadn't thought to mention that I do all the rolling. I've got the combat stats of all players on one handy dandy board I keep near my oomputer for quick reference, and as you noticed no other player has any rolls within their posts.

Anywho, I'm watchng Rambo now, then sleep, then posts when I awaken.

Topic: Silent Hill: Eternal Decay
Subject: Chris and Deliah standing i nthe street, what a messed up place to meet

Chris grabbed the items from the drawer and shoved them into his backpack, making a mental note of the small metal box and the map of the town, keeping the map in hand, he finds himself overcome by a sudden sense of urgency to leave, and makes a mad dash for the street, leaving the shambling creeper in the hallway behind him. He had been glancing at the map of the town, trying to pinpoint locations of importance to head too, such as the city limits or the local sheriff’s office, when his progress was halted momentarily by the sudden impact of something, or someone. Instinctively, Chris’s map hand fell to his side as the one holding the table leg raised to strike, when a growl followed by a female voice caused him to halt as he looked over the young woman before him.

“Sorry, there miss” Chris said as he relaxed a little, letting the table drop along with his arm to tap against his steel toed boot.

Hey! HEY! Oh my god, you're like a real person! I was starting to think I was the only one. Do you... do you know where we are? How did we get here?"

Chris looked over the woman who was obviously panicked, he himself was far from relaxed, but he needed to get her to slow down before she hyperventilated or her head exploded. “Calm down lady, it’s alright. I’m as real as anything last time I checked, and it’s nice to see another pretty face, the company back their in Jack’s Inn wasn’t the most eye-pleasing.” Something about the woman before him struck him as oddly familiar, though he couldn’t place his finger on it.

Glancing around he held up the map he had found, pointing to the Name by the margin. “Looks like we’re somewhere called Silent Hill, but I can’t for the life of me remember how, or why I got here, which means I’m thinking we’re both in the same boat.”

She waited for a response and looked around, hoping they were safe, but being out in the open wasn't agood idea, she felt.

"Oh, hi. yeah, I'm so sorry about running into you like that but...well, you probaby wouldn't believe me if I told you."

“At this point lady, I’d believe just about anything.” Chris said with a smirk, dusting off his SWAT vest and pants from the dust that had gathered while crawling around on the floor.

She nodded as he spoke, and laughed nervously. "Okay, maybe you will, maybe you won't. There were these things, and they spit and they creep and... Hi. I'm Delilah. Delilah Drake."

She looked around, and fidgeted. "I think we should find a place to lay low. Maybe find some weapons or something..."

That’s it, he knew she looked familiar. “Deliliah Drake huh, I’m Chris, pleasure’s mine I’m sure, but now isn’t the best time for pleasantries. Chris clipped his Ipod into the comm.-pocket on his SWAT vest, and pulled a couple items from his backpack. The first was the flashlight, which he tested quickly to see if it worked. (Need description of the type of flashlight please) The Second, was the photograph he found titled Del by the Lake. Turning it slowly he let’s Delilah take a peek at it (while he or perhaps both try and notice any similarities).

“You’re right, staying out here in the open isn’t safe. We should find Shelter. I’ve a feeling Jack’s Inn has a lot more answers to be found within, but until we’re better prepared to search it, I’d rather not take my chances with those things inside.” Glancing at the Map, he notices they are not too far from Nathan Ave. “Let’s make our way towards the Texxon Gas Station, See if we can’t find anyone who can help us. If not, Nathan will take us straight out of town, We can try and gather some provisions and take our chances out on the road. If we can find a working vehicle, that would be even better.”

Subject: Don't smite me

Smite Wal-mart!

Inventory is wednesday (which for the world's largest company is a MASSIVE deal)

So aside from working overtime alot, I've also gotta go to Edmonton for a luncheon with some other staff on policy and protocol, and the do's don't and what have you's at 1pm today. Which means 45 minutes one way, plus the meeting/ lunch and I'll be some kinda late for the game, though I'll pop in when I get home providing it's running.

NPC EMmerus till then if you would, you know him/ me well enough I think.

Here's hoping for some success!

Topic: Forgotten Realms: the Unsung Heroes Q/A
Subject: well:

There are times when I just let the pc's banter back and forth for roleplay purposes, and other times when I poke my nose in to get the game rolling again, typically once you post at least let those directed to in the post respond, then carry on as you wish lol.

For instance, I've asked Da to post a response to you, she's working on one now as far as I, and you could post something in response to her, or the arrival of Xaris for instance. I'll hopefully post a little more for the fire scene tomorrow.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: Six pence none the richer

The auction had brought more than the Calimshite had bargained for this night as unexpected guests continued to arrive and disrupt the proceedings; and he was getting more than a little ticked off. Reaching into his pocket, he retrieved a small metal tube, and with a quick quaff downed the entire thing.

He stalked closer to the cage doors, even as the new arrival almost immediately began falling into a spell, the incantation only furthering the fear of Aelistae and Linnix as it appeared as though another enemy possibly lay behind them. A sudden sphere of flame appeared just outside the cage, and rolled towards the Calimshite, who could not escape the rolling conflagration. The sphere burned at his already bronzed skin, and he growled in anger, his own curse at Arcsheva muffled by the flaming gout of breath which left his lips. The flames, released prematurely, only barely washed over the newly arrived mage. (Arcsheva 20/22) (calimshite -7)

Meanwhile, those around her found on for everything they held dear, life, love, and friendship.

Linnix was in a blind rage, pushing through her body’s pain as she struck out at the Orc before her, her small dagger once more slipping past the creature’s defenses and drawing a thin line of blood across his arm. Aelistae followed suit with a mighty upward swing of her own, splitting the Orc’s hide, and chest as the fine blade came free of his body with a trail of blood following. (-4, -10) The Orc grunted a guttural gasp of pain (say that three times fast) and along with his companion they both turned their attention to Aelistae, The recently wounded Orc’s club came up in a mighty swing of his own, clipping Aelistae under the chin, and nearly sending her head spinning as she felt her heels lift from the ground as the might of the blow lifted her. (Aelistae 16/30)

Nash, still parted from his beloved moon-dancer fought on with renewed vigor, his mighty cross-blade arcing in a whirl of blue trails eliciting numerous shrieks and screams as it was set about in deadly efficiency. The whip wielding woman cracked her leather at Nash, hoping to disarm him of his weapon, but found herself dropping the whip instead as Nash gave a mighty tug, almost pulling the woman close enough to feel the bite of his blade. More swings were exchanged as another pair of enemies fell, and as Nash finally came into view, he was like a man possessed. His normally grey-green eyes seemed devoid of their emerald hues, and instead his eyes were blackened orbs of steely void as he set about the grim task at hand.

The featureless mage, along with the gender discretional half-elf turned towards Aelistae and Linnix, and while the mage finished his spell, the orc before Aelistae’s (the one previously affected by the Wave of Grief spell) muscles swelled and rippled with increased strength. (Bull’s strength) The half-elf pulled out a small mandolin from his back, and began playing a haunting melody while singing along. What was even more disturbing was the quasi-elf’s voice was at a tone, pitch and accent that still made it hard to differentiate their gender. The sound fell over all those gathered, and it was evident as those originally welcomed for the auction stood just a little bit taller, confidence filling their actions. (Bardic Music)

Topic: Audalis: Tides of War Q/A
Subject: Hammer

casting a spell in combat provokes an attack of opportunity, meaning anyone within melee range of ou (in thi case the skeleton) get's an attack to try and harm you/ disrupt your spellcasting)

Now there is a 'defensive cast' which requires a concentration check to pass before casting the spell, but does not provoke an attack of opportunity. Of course you'd have to make the decision as to whether or not you'd prefer to have the skeleton roll against your AC, or you roll a concentration check vs a DC 16. (if you fail you lose the spell)

(If the skeleton hits you, you have to succeed on a Concentration check equal to 10+ damage taken or lose the spell)

That and I noticed Vorrioch needs his second round post in, so while I've worked more on the post, I'll hold off until I've heard from them in actually posting it.

Now, back to the pepto bismol and bed before work... ugh.

Topic: The Chakran Portal - an Adventure in Audalis
Subject: hmmm

Perhaps it was their likeminded Khordaldrum attitudes, but as Thondrek listened to Loda he could only grunt an agreement as he chewed on an apple, one of just a few provisions he had taken from the stores of Hith Lee. "I agree, we've taken far longer than we ever planned, and it be time to see this story to a close so we can all finally rest like the good little son's and daughter's of Khorax we've been." Thondrek stroked his beard a moment before adding. "And as fer the rest of you, well, I'm sure y'all'd like to get back to some normalcy or pursue other --he paused looking towards Draven and Alyssia for but a moment-- interests.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: the Unsung Heroes Q/A
Subject: CD points

I never even thought about ressurection: There is a Divine intervenson level of CD points though, where I may fudge a roll to prevent you from needing the ressurection in the first place.

As for myself getting Cd points, sure, you're about the 5th person who'se wondered if I can get them so I'll tell's ya what.

I'm adding myself to the list, starting at 1, and if any of you feel I deserve more, let me know and I'll tally the random bunch (max 3) to my name. Perhaps if I hit the magic number (which I've now rolled ) it'll prove beneficial to you all as well.

Topic: Memorable Munchkins
Subject: Guilty

some Years back here on the inn, Admiral started a 20th level Evil campaign where we got 20th level gold, evil alignment, and no restrictions. Let's just say that when other players found out my Straight wiard / archmage could out melee the straight fighters, out cast the straight cleric's and cause other pc's to explode without saving throws even hopeful of reaching, it cause quite a stir in the q/a and pm's.

I am of course speaking of Valerian LeFey, Fallen Angel (Reversed Half Celestial template) Evil genius, and magic item's specialist.

That's what two weeks of character building does, especially when you've jst moved into a new apartment, with naught but cardboard boxes for furniture and your computer at the time lol.

Subject: still here

was waiting for you to reply to a pm I sent you, then realize I never actually sent it eep.

My query was that I never posted anything about Chris running from the inn, in fact my last post had him closing the door to buy him more time to search for stuff, as he really wants that suitcase.

However, if his taking off into the street is how you see things, so be it, I'll post about running into the woman asap.

Topic: Audalis: Tides of War Q/A
Subject: creative liscenses

Hammer, in regards to your statement. I typically do not frown upon any creative liberties taken by the pc's (even speach or creating npc's )So long as they have no fundamental impact on the game. IE, Bugsy for instance, I created with the friendship of Ilya apparent, he just ran with it, it lead to no rolls, no buying of anything nothing mathmatical. no problem

Creating a npc in which combat is involved is another story, as it has a direct impact on the game, thsly those should be left up to me. Anywho, this game is filled with new players and those new to this type of thing, it's a learning process, so no worries!

We'll simply take it one step at a time.

AS far as posts have been so far though, I'm quite impressed, and look forwad to more.
