Topic: Where are you from?
Subject: You know....


...I never noticed that before.

Maybe his shadow is just that long, hence the username? *shrug* Or maybe, for some reason, he just listed ALL the places he's lived... Geez, if I did that I'd have a three page list, myself.

Okay, Longshadow, give it up... inquiring minds want to know... where in the world is you is?

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: There's the last of the troupe...


“Don’t worry yourself about payment Dapple.” Kilgim spoke up, “My cousin Dwan will make sure we are well compensated for our efforts if on nothing but my say so.”

Since Arien had so readily accepted the Council’s proposal (despite the misgivings that Dapple lofted verbally and those that were more subtly emoted by others) Caicher had been practically beaming. With the party’s agreement to undertake the Council’s ‘quest’ came not only the opportunity for adventure – which the bard had found himself wanting more and more the past weeks – but, also, if things went well, the chance to learn more about the Heroes of Freegate firsthand and, as such, the opportunity to immortalize their deeds in song and story…

There are the beginnings of more than one, already, he thought, doffing his hat long enough to push a loose spill of braids behind one subtly pointed ear, his mirthful gaze dancing from one face to the next, and they have been here only moments. There is a veritable symphony written in their faces!

…The hat was sat back in place at a jaunty angle, then, and, reaching for his fiddle as the music in his mind’s ear began to demand accompaniment, Caicher realized that, just as his hunger to play was growing so, too, was a sudden craving for spicy sausages beginning to pang his stomach. Curious, he mused as his fingers curled around his beloved fiddle, I can’t recall ever having craved sausages of any kind before…Why would I suddenly…

“Well good to have you here to help then. How about some lunch then? Can you join us for lunch or do you want to leave as soon as possible? I know that I have a remarkable craving for spicy sausage.”

“Ah yes,” Flynn chuckled, realizing what the sudden appetite was about, “the little dragon. I had nearly forgotten…” He turned, nestling his fiddle under his chin, and caught sight of the little pseudo-dragon that the legend and lore of the Freegate Heroes mentioned from time to time. At first, when the dragonette launched itself from Dapple Moon’s shoulder to Char’s, Caicher accompanied the creature’s awkward flight with an inspired dancing of bow upon strings. Before the pseudo-dragon could take flight again, though, the bard became aware (mostly due to the party’s reactions) that these antics weren’t typical for Sunset…

“Is there something wrong with your familiar?” Relg asked.

…The last notes of Caicher’s abandoned tune dissipated on the air even as Char and Maximus began to move from their places; the bow was relegated to the same hand as his fiddle, and the hand freed by the action now rested at the ready on the hilt of his scimitar. “What troubles you, little one,” Flynn, speaking in the tongue of the gypsies, cooed softly to the little creature… ((OOC: Animal Rapport as appropriate, please, to either help soothe or, as with Char, better understand Sunset’s actions/anxiety.))

Subject: Indeed...


"It is a good day to die" are often some of the first words out of my mouth every morning... preceded, on occasion, by the random expletive.

And, as far as the *shrug*, goes... I sometimes say "shrug" when I shrug just to be sure that people know I'm shrugging as opposed to twitching out...

Mmmmm... spicy sausages.

I'll have a post for the bard ASAP... most definitely before I go on vacation at the end of this week. As I noted in the Rocinante Q/A, I'll be out of pocket from the 10th to the 19th or 20th... NPC Flynn as needed, of course... just don't let him die until I get back... *bats eyelashes at the DM*... pweeeeeeeeeeeeez?

Subject: Scan and share?


I'm working on that, actually... you didn't think I'd go an' leave th' best ruttin' crew in the Verse in a lurch, did ya?... problem is that the individual pages are quite a bit larger than my scanner, which means I'll have to shuffle, shift, and stitch a bit to get nice little "share mes".

Also... very excited for the next update, with luck I'll even manage a post of my own before week's end... and that brings me to my last bit... I'll be heading for the boondocks at the end of the week and, as usual, will likely have limited or no access to the internet until I get home on the 19th or 20th. Feel free to NPC Sam in my absence if necessary (I trust you all to not get him shot until I get back )...

You'll appreciate it more when you're older, Accalia... Moisture keeps the wrinkles away donchaknow?

Anyhoo, Pit and others have taken to carrying and handing out towels, we've got an Innmate named Dragonblood who's been designated the Facelick Squeegee, and, if all else fails, Ion can surely mix you up something that'll make you forget that you've been facelicked... until it happens again, anyhoo....

Topic: Memorandum
Subject: In Memoriam


Very nice, YeOlde... Since you've taken the lead, here, and posted that lovely piece, I'd like to offer up one that has also helped me through more than one loss.

Do Not Stand At My Grave and Weep (Mary E. Frye)

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.

Topic: Greetings and Salutations. (obviously new here)
Subject: Indubitably


I've always said that the only really real difference between our mods and our Innmates is that we mods get purple name tags... oh... and phenomenal cosmic powers!



Kinda like that, you know?

Anyhoo, O' monk-type-dude, Na'Li'Kui, welcome to the happiest little pocket dimension on the web and, as others have already pointed out, if you need anything just give a shout and someone will come skidding around the corner, flying through the air with their tongue hangin' out and... er... I mean, one of our staff or our super-tasty Innmates will certainly be more than happy to help you out.

P.S. Boss, you forgot that there was 6 feet of snow on that hill... and that the dinosaurs were so sluggish in cold weather that it was much faster for us to walk... we were out of school by the time woolly mammoths came around...

Topic: Whats a good way to start a graphic novel about magic?
Subject: Wellllll....


...as Dak said, Accalia, you're definitely in the right place to maybe kick up a nugget of inspiration or two. Hang around and browse, jump in a game or two... heck, start up a game or two... and before too awful long, I'm sure, you'll find that you've got more than a pocketful of sparkly nuggets of inspiration and imagination...

As to the embarrassment/nervousness/confidence thing; don't let it get to you and don't ever feel like you're being judged by anyone hereabouts. Like you said, yourself, you're young and "new" and looking for a firm path to put your feet on, yeah? Everyone starts somewhere, little miss and I'm pretty sure that everyone, in their beginnings, had similar thoughts and concerns ("Geez! That sucks!" or "Crap! Why can't I get this to come out right? I'm such a loser!") The thing is, whether we started years and years ago or just yesterday, I'm sure we can all look back at those first steps we took towards writing, drawing, storytelling, or whatever and say "Wow! I've come a loooooong way since then, haven't I? And, you know, even though I thought that story (picture, whatever) kind of sucked, then, I can look at it now and see how it grew from that rather lackluster little seed into this WORLD SHAKING EPIC TRIUMPH that I've got going, now!"

Point being - Each footstep is a beginning and an end; there is no path, only the journeying.

Keep on keeping on, little lady, and, if you need help or inspiration, just give a shout... one of our fabulous Innmates will always come running to offer insight and encouragement... I can practically guarantee it.

P.S. Moved this one to the general forum as it seems to fit better there.

Topic: Characters without stories
Subject: Ch'dau (Daeron Cynj)


One of my earliest characters ever was a mutant mountain lion named Ch'dau that I came up with for a Gamma World romp... Had a lot of fun just putting the character sheet together and coming up with a little snippet of a background... then, when it came time to actually play him, the fun just took off in all kinds of directions and, by the time the campaign was over, I discovered that I had essentially created what I lovingly referred to thereafter as "Kwai Chang Kitty" - essentially a wandering warrior/priest/monk type.

I had soooo much fun with that character that I ended up pulling him out of the Gamma World setting for which he'd originally been created, performing minor "tweaks" to the character and doing some hefty updates/re-writes/expansion of the backstories, etc... Turned out to be a fairly epic tale on its own, actually... and, in one form or another, Ch'dau (a.k.a. Dearon Cynj) has made appearances in numerous games, stories, and artwork over the years... I may have to dig him out of mothballs again, now that I think about it... might be fun.

Have you ever tried to hide a Grugg?

It ain't easy, lemme tell ya! Even if you get him into the suitcase it's inevitable that more than a lock or two of all that hair is just not going to fit in there... You can try and look all innocent as you go through customs, whistle loudly so they don't hear the muffled 'asdf' issuing from your luggage, and feign shock when they open the thing up to find a Grugg in there but they never, ever believe you when you tell them that you have no clue how a Grugg ended up in your carry-on... *shakes head* ... it took like three weeks to get Grugg out of Singapore after that fiasco... and I'm still languishing in a Mexican prison for the effort... and you can't get a decent lasagna in either place!!!
