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


just meant a final interaction post before morning or what not that was fine.

As far as I'm conerned, everyone has returned safely, gotten some drink and food even though the Gryphon is now way past norma closing hours, the fire kept Bugsy and his staff occupied enough that you all managed to slip back in though techincally all rooms have been booked for the evening.

Knowing you tried to help with the fire, Bugsy will allow you to stay in Tessas quarter's free of charge, he simply wants to go to bed. Meal wil be some leftover strew from dinner (only barely luke warm and some bread and water.)Seeing as Tessa seems to have run off for the evening, a serving quarters with 3 beds in the room all of which are currently empty, is yours for the night.

Just need to know what potion you gave Artanis, and I'll deduct it and add the hp to her.

Aside from that, if Deucalion wants a final post that's great, but my next update for you will be the morning.

I'm also going to hopefully wrap up the other parties' scenario soon.

Topic: ~*Whom Gods Annoy*~
Subject: She's alive ALIVE!


Katriana watched in awe and bewildered wonder as Kaene worked his mighty magics to breathe new life into Kumadel. Katriana found herself hovering over the procedure, her curiosity getting the better of her as she stared at the ritual which would grant life renewed to the stranger.

It was a slow process, but as Kumadel’s body lurched with the first breathe of a successful resurrection, Katriana found herself crying, unexpectedly her fur beneath her eyes matted with tears of joy.

Her sky blue eyes stopped upon the feline one. The one who had crossed the void with her, to face off against the pirates. "You," she said softly, almost a whisper, "you have saved my life."

Katriana’s lips curled into an instant smile, at the stranger’s recognition of her. Katriana bowed to Kumadel, still weak but alive and well. “It was the lord’s above who saw fit to save you my dear, I was but the messenger, to deliver you to their loving embrace.” Katriana slowly raised her head, before slipping Kumadel’s backpack from her shoulders and placing it before her, and also bequeathing her jewelry back to the rightful owner.

“I’m glad you’re back, but I forgot to get your spear. Guess I might have had my hands full. He offered a supplicated smile, before turning away to the rest of those gathered. Listening as Rael commented on the need for information. “Let us visit the local guild-houses and watering holes, for there we might find one who has traveled to Portluck. Perhaps we can arrange for a guide, or better still accompany a caravan or trade envoy already scheduled for that destination.”

I've starte a post, but if I don't manage a actual one Vaskar is war chanting as per his skald ability, but wait, you don't have my character sheet! I should really snd that to you, will do now. Read it, love it, and he's Giving all allies +10 hp, +1 attack rolls, +1 damage rolls and -1 to Everyone's AC (so a bonus)

Jjust need to find time to finish the actual chant.

Vaskar himself will ready his shield and axe but not actually attack, instead he'll be banging his axe on the shield in a rhythm to accentuate his chanting.

PS, Characte sheet sent.

Topic: Forgotten Realms: The Unsung Heroes
Subject: a change of pace


Somewhere else, while flames flicker away outside, fires raged inside as well. Linnix was seeing red. Gone was the delicate woman who had danced under the candle light and in her place was a woman filled with the need to inflict pain and agony. She lashed out at the orc before her, once again the thin blade darting in and stinging the orc like the stinger of a hornet. (-4) The Orc, for the first time started breathing a little heavier. Perhaps finally the multiple small wounds were all catching up with the orc’s considerable fortitude.

Aelistae flinched back as the magically strengthened Orc flexed its increased muscles at her and hefted his club in preparation for another strike. With a quick step backwards, Aelistae fell into a spell. She pulled from the Orc’s mind memories of his cruel upbringing, the stinging pain of the lash and the flame reddened brands as he was beaten and molded into servitude. Though Aelistae couldn’t see what was going through the Orc’s mind, she knew her spell had a visible effect on the brutish creature, as he shook visibly for a moment, before losing all composure and running from the room, drawing a cursed “Fool” from the featureless mage who turned on the women once more.

Nash took a vicious blow to the side, a short sword slipping past his guard and stabbing deeply in his side. He grunted in pain, but that grunt turned into a seething scream as his entire body began to ‘burn’ in a brackish black and purple flame, much akin to the visible effects of a faerie fire spell, only much more sinister looking. Those standing around him were momentarily shocked by the transformation, as Nash’s colorless eyes flickered with an unholy hellfire. With a low, creepy chuckle in a voice that surely didn’t belong to the Nash Aelistae knew and loved, he set to work in a blur of steel in a fury that left blood and ichors spraying in a grim circle of death around him. One, two, three of his attackers fell to his vicious blade as it cut a swath across and through them, continuing its deadly path unhindered by such paltry things as armor, flesh or bone. The whip wielding woman shrieked at the horror before her, and she too ran for the door. She barely managed to lift the thick black curtain in the doorway before her back and chest exploded in a spine shattering geyser of blood. As Nash finished his cleave, he brought the sword over his head and let it fly with a feral scream. The magical double blade flew end over end with amazing accuracy considering the weight differential in the lengths of the two blades. As it blast through the woman’s back, the longer blade leading the skewer, the sheer force of the impalement, dragging her down as the crossguard lodged in her back and the blade stuck at an odd angle in the ground. The woman slumped over, her blood running down the length of the fine blade to pool at the ground, her body suspended while the magical double blade stood sturdy like a cross in the doorway, her body blocking easy escape.

“Hehehe, you have been tried, judged, and found guilty of sins beyond repent” came a voice laced with infernal undertones.

Sheva meanwhile was racing through the concentration needed to command her flaming sphere while also casting a new spell of her own, as both “No-Face and Music-Man” as she called them moved through incantations of their own. Her laming sphere moved once more against the auctioneer, but this time he managed to dodge around it and he charged Aelistae to replace the Orc which had fled.
The faceless mage’s spell was released first, another pair of magical force darts flying directly towards Aelistae, however they shot over her shoulder and slammed into Sheva (11/22 hp) The mage was staggered as the burning darts bit into her, but gritted her teeth and returned spell for spell with a searing arrow of acid, a trail of stinging green smoke streaking behind it as it impacted the mage, burning into him.

The half elf, who had realized the tables were slowly turning, thumbed a fancy button on his doublet, and pulling it free and throwing it to the ground before him, it exploded in a brief flash of light, and when the glare died down, he was nowhere to be found, hopefully gone for good.

The few remaining patrons in the room had scattered along the side walls, trying to keep away from the man who fought like a warrior possessed, while the Calimshite lunged at his charge at Aelistae whie the orc fighting Linnix swung out in a pain induced rage. Incredibly, both women were able to twist and bend around the incoming weapons, and even more amazing, the Calimshite’s mighty falchion impacted the club of the orc, almost skewering it in half, the top half of the wooden cudgel splintered and dangling by a few wooden fibres.

(3 more random patrons + no face + orc + calimshite left)

Subject: trade what for what now?


What exactly would Thondrek trade for a magical waraxe?

Can he at least find a masterworked one?

What about the crystal? They can go into any weapon magical or otherwise, perhaps a more common option rather than actual magical weapons.

Topic: The Chakran Portal - Q/A
Subject: Need thoughts from all players


Thondrek's Wealth
Gold 2477
Fire opal worth 1000gp

Thondrek's wish List

Crystal of Arcane Steel (lesser) for 2000 gp
+1 insight bonus on attack roll and damage roll ro your weapon when delivering a spell or spell-like ability through a melee attack

It's the perfect option for a duskblade. Now I don't know how 'group cash goes' but we've lost Malius, and Thondrek is one of the parties only major Melee Fighters. (can wear armor, good HP, Fighter's Base attack bonus etc etc) If I can have one of the 500gp Aquamarines, I can spend the rest of my money to buy the crystal and pay the difference of turning my WarAxe into a magical weapon (+1).

Personally I think it'll benefit everyone as I don't know what we may come across that will require a magic weapon to hit it, but since I don't have enough to afford it all myself, I thought I'd ask.

Pwetty pwease can I use the gem?

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.

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.”

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.

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.

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.

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.
