I figured people are busy or didn't have much to say, so I have moved you forward and put you into combat.

Topic: Pharaoh
Subject: moving on up


Webb climbs a tree to get a good look around. The first thing that strikes his eye is far way in the distance is a pyramid. It is a long ways away, probably a good three days journey, but it is so big that it is visible from this distance. He also notices that there are landmark scatterings of an ancient civilization between you and the pyramid. There are also some more palm trees in this easterly direction, which means water at least. Other than that, there are no signs of life nearby.

You set up the tents and put yourself and the animals out of the sun’s rays. Watches are established, as there is no such thing as being to cautious in these lands. The water from the well feels good on the back of your throat and the hangovers of the drugs or alcohol in your system seems to be chased away by the wet coolness.

As night falls and the oppressive heat begins to subside, you’re left with the question of which direction to go. The only signs of civilization is to the east, and it is an ancient civilization at best.

You begin to pack up the tents when then ground starts to shake. It begins slowly, like a small tremor but it starts to grow steadily. Suddenly, the ground near the horses bursts free and a strange worm-like creature emerges from the ground. Its huge maw is large enough to swallow a horse and that appears to be what it is looking for. The skin of the monster is almost a purple hue with a pale yellow underbelly. The ground on the other side of you breaks open to reveal the tail with a huge stinger.

OOC: Combat time. Please tell me what you plan to do, and what you are likely to do if the plan fails.

Subject: Much larger in real life


You reach the town when it is dark. There is little need to search for your enemy, as they are exactly where Char and Dapple saw them last, still discussing and arguing the merits of going to find women versus staying at their posts. They are well lit from their lofty position, with the energy crackling on the halberd illuminating them well. The intellectual conversation between them has broken down into “Uh huh!” and “Un uh!” back and forth.

Those of you who chose stealth for your approach have no difficulty as they are truly not paying attention and are so loud you could move a division in without them hearing. Kilgim says a quick prayer and casts a protection from Lightning bolts on Arien, as he will be an attraction to the electrical energy of that halberd in all his armour. Matthias tries to use a powerful charm on the ugly brother but it seems to be highly magic resistant.

(I assume Arien and Maximus will go first to draw the attack and present a better target to the archers, backstabbers and spellcaster)

As Arien and Maximus prepare to charge in against them, The White Haired one stops to look around and listen. He turns to his brother, “Hold…my brother. We are…being approached…by great…warriors.”

“What? Who dares approach us?”

“Unless I…am mistaken….and…I never…am. We are…about to face…Arien Thedell… and his…Succoring Six!”

“The famous Demon Slayers? Are you sure?”

“Aye…my brother. I have…all their…action figures…at home. If we…slay them,...there…will be much…glory and…fame…for us.”

“I wish to face Maximus the Mighty, whose blade can cut 100 demons in half with a single swing. Come, test your sword against me!” he shouts out to the darkness and leaps from the chimney top to the ground. When he lands, the force is so great that the dirt ripples away from him in a shockwave circle. High above, the flying one gestures dramatically with his halberd and electrical energy discharges from it in lightning bolts striking the ground and buildings around them.

OOC: Combat time. You all agreed on different approached but no one was specific. I also wanted to give you a chance to react to the brothers.

Subject: Those absence


If I do not hear from Robert by Sunday, I am going to have Matthias offer to use his Charm Monster on one of the beings in an attempt to force one to fight the other. If they are truly brothers, then fighting each other won't be against their nature.

If I have not heard from Raven by Sunday, Then Kilgim will cast a "Protection from Lightning Bolts" on Arien, since he is charging in and wearing all that armour. (That gives Arien 70 hp of electric absorption before he starts taking damage - I play the spell a bit differently)

Real Life, like network producers play havoc on our firefly game. I know Robert wants to post but his RL situation is crazy right now.

I am going to barrel this forward on the weekend if Robert doesn't post. Cat and I will work out the meeting. I will make the following assumptions with Sam:

He will tell the crew about the hidden loot and part of Brigit's story.

He will tell the Captain all the details including the hiring of Ludlow.

He will suggest that they meet with Brigit to go over the details of the treasure and the hows and whens.


That would be in the afternoon, after the town meeting. Once you have that meeting, you can have a group meeting about what is going to happen next.

Yes, there are a lot of meetings going on. I promise that you will be leaving soon with a paying haul but I can't rush through all that.

GIFT WRAPPING WITH THE HELP OF YOUR CAT

1. Clear large space on table for wrapping present.

2. Go to closet and collect bag in which present is contained, and shut door.

3. Open door and remove cat from closet.

4. Go to cupboard and retrieve rolls of wrapping paper.

5. Go back and remove cat from cupboard.

6. Go to drawer, and collect transparent sticky tape, ribbons, scissors, labels, etc...

7. Lay out presents and wrapping materials on table, to enable wrapping strategy to be formed.

8. Go back to drawer to get string, remove cat that has been in the drawer since last visit and collect string.

9. Remove present from bag.

10. Remove cat from bag.

11. Open box to check present, remove cat from box, replace present.

12. Lay out paper to determine size to cut.

13. Try to smooth out paper, realize cat is underneath and remove cat.

14. Cut the paper to size, keeping the cutting line straight.

15. Throw away first sheet as cat chased the scissors, and tore the paper.

16. Cut second sheet of paper to size - by putting cat in the bag the present came in.

17. Place present on paper.

18. Lift up edges of paper to seal in present. Wonder why edges don't reach. Realize cat is between present and paper. Remove cat.

19. Place object on paper, to hold in place while tearing transparent sticky tape.

20. Spend 20 minutes carefully trying to remove transparent sticky tape from cat with pair of nail scissors.

21. Seal paper with sticky tape, making corners as neat as possible.

22. Look for roll of ribbon. Chase cat down hall in order to retrieve ribbon.

23. Try to wrap present with ribbon in a two-directional turn.

24. Re-roll ribbon and remove paper, which is now torn due to cat's enthusiastic ribbon chase.

25. Repeat steps 13-20 until you reach last sheet of paper.

32. Repeat previous step as often as is necessary (until you can hear cat from outside door)

33. Lay out last sheet of paper. (This will be difficult in the small area of the toilet, but do your best)

34. Discover cat has already torn paper. Unlock door go out and hunt through various cupboards, looking for sheet of last year's paper. Remember that you haven't got any left because cat helped with this last year as well.

35. Return to lockable room, lock door, and sit on toilet and try to make torn sheet of paper look presentable.

36. Seal box, wrap with paper and repair by very carefully sealing with sticky tape. Tie up with ribbon and decorate with bows to hide worst areas.

37. Label. Sit back and admire your handiwork, congratulate yourself on completing a difficult job.

I despise the 3e 3.5e 3.14159265e, and 4e systems, but I think that a gamer is a gamer and they are all welcome at the red dragon inn. We may discuss, agree and fight over which system is better, but we all agree that any "e" is better than reality. (Oooo. I should put that on a shirt)

I'm all for more partners and affiliates whether it is Dungeon and Dragons, Mutants and Masterminds, Toons and Loons, Buns and Bakeries or Bustiers and Bordellos.

Subject: master level


Yes Bromern, you may triple your kukri specialization to master level. That will give you +3/+3 and also has the added bonus of any fumble that results in loss of weapon will be re-rolled. You can not move higher than master level in specialization.

Fighter (pure) can master as many weapons as they wish. Ranger/paladin can master one, but single specialize in as many as they wish. Non fighters may single specialize in a single weapon. (my rules, in case you are flipping through the books trying to find this).

I just changed the short ame on this thread so it doesn't get confused with Skari-dono recruitment.

By the way - if you like Superheroes, try your hand at a RPG. SD is looking for players.

Fave Superhero - Wildfire (Drake Burroughs) from The Legion of Superheroes.

Superhero RPG. Ooooooo. Must resist the call of the tights....

I played a superhero RPG called Champions (I think) back in the early ...well a long time ago. I'm a sucker for Iron age leather and lingerie style. We were playing a sorta "Watchman/X-men" crossover style.

Anyway, I will look forward to lurking on this, but I don't think the tights will fit me anymore.

All you warrior types - you get a new weapon prof. or you can add to a single specialization and a new Non-weapon

All specialization melee attacks are now 2/1 instead of 3/2.

Wizards also get a new weapon prof and non weapon.

Kilgim now has 5/5/3/1 in cleric spells (Yeah for fourth level spells).

Adrian has 24 mana points and now has fourth level spells.

So get your requests in early. Christmas and combat are coming soon and either leads to a slaying song tonight.

Yes, I am very sleep deprived. Thank you for getting all wavy like and sparklish, with the lights and the glowing like.
