Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: Bad Dm

I'm sorry that I have created a delay in the game. With William's birthday this weekend and Christmas coming, by the time I got free time this weekend, all I could do was plant myself on the couch and watch "The Quick and the Dead" (my quilty pleasure).

I will endeavour to update all my games this week, before Wed.

Topic: Assistance with my essay for Performance Arts
Subject: interesting topic

You might want to look up a book called - The Fantasy Role-playing Game: A New Performing Art by Mackay et al. You also might want to look at Bruno Bettleheim (sp?) and Joseph Campbell books for reference.

What is your approach on this essay? What is your general thesis or premise that you are looking to explore?

Topic: Pharaoh
Subject: Its worse than that, He's dead Jim, dead!

"May I have your name, sir? I would know the name of my enemy, on the chance we should meet again."

The Soldier rolls up the scroll and looks down at the sand. “I am but a messenger. The order is from the Sultan Zoltan the Wise, signed by the Visier on his behalf.” He looks up at up with a look that speaks of anguish and conflict. “Take your possessions and leave us now!” he says loudly. The soldiers keep their weapons on you as you gather your stuff.

The sun is beaming heat upon you and the sand dunes are immense. After a half hour, you find a very small oasis – a few palm trees for shade, some bushes and hardy growth, and what looks like a very old well. So old in fact that instead of being marked with signs of the current language it is actually marked by pictograms that you heard referred to as hieroglyphs.

The dead bandits were in the process of unloading or loading when then were killed. They were killed by arrows, shot from above them by the angle and look of the wounds.

A quick examination of their bodies reveals that they are dervishes, wearing leather armour under wrapped cloth. Each one has a falchion, a buckler and short bow. On their persons are a total of 17 silver coins, very old and marked with a man’s visage you have never seen. They also each have a small leather bag filled halfway with salt. On their horses, are quivers with 15 arrows, a bedroll with an individual tent, several water skins (full and wet), dried fruits, meats and rations for five days travel (ten if you eat lightly), and each one has a flask of bluish green liquid that glows under Artemis’ detect magic.

The mule is laden with several bundles of firewood and kindling, many heavy blankets rolled, several pots and pans, and two large bladders of water (still cool). The bladder is made of some cured animal hide that is tough but stretches well when wet. Near the mule lies a coil of rope tied to an open ended bladder lying on the desert sand.

As you are examining the bodies, a group of pegasi can be seen flying away from close to where you were “freed”. They fly away from you, upwards into the sky.

Huh? Wait a minute! Why would they use Pegasi to take you to the border? The flying mounts were only used for long distances.

You look around the oasis for a marker. Watering holes are considered immensely valuable and anyone who could claim them as their own would leave a marker. Tribes would go to war over Well locations. But other than the marks on the well, there are no markers here. There is only one place in the desert where people would not claim water and that would require flying mounts to reach. You have been dumped in the Desert of Desolation - a large track of land where an ancient civilization once thrived. Now a haunted land, filled with evil spirits and undead creatures, damned by the greed and malice of their rulers who defied the gods. You have no idea how deep into this forsaken land you have been placed, or even if the Oasis of the White Palm is in the direction the men flew off.

This day keeps getting better for you. The heat is reaching unbearable levels, especially for those in metal armour. travel by night, sleep during the day the messengers had said.

OOC: the palm trees are quite high here, in case someone wanted to climb one to get some bearings.

Topic: Links! My kingdom for some links!
Subject: you know

This is the only D&D site I hang out in..on...around. Now I do frequent some Serenity sites but I don't think we could interest them in links. As to other sites I frequent alot ... I think the links would break the PG rating.

Maybe if I wrote some Serenity gaming articles?

Nothing wrong with the odd goofy name. Goblinforger could have a story behind it. Orcmaker though.... probably exiled from the kingdom.

Sorry about that Duncan, you asked before but I completely forgot to answer. Your staff has 25 charges. Your Wand has 100.

Jozan? We are just waiting on you. Would love to move it forward this weekend.

Subject: symetry

So far, the only thing we have on the front page with a resemblance of symetry are the buttons and the partner banners. Everything else is all over the place. Shoving them into the corner makes the page more uneven.

Topic: Clawing my way back to the surface...
Subject: good to hear

Take your time getting back to normal, and don't scare us like that again. You are about 7 hours away from my place and I was already planning the intervention.

Get back into the games when you can. After all, it's not like anyone else is posting to my games (guilt guilt guilt).

Topic: yet another movie thread...
Subject: Vamping out in the Twilight Zone

Last night, I saw the advanced screening of Twilight movie. This was a gift to my daughter (age 12) and god-daughter (age 14) – I had no real interest in the movie and I have not read the books. Discovery of the night - the "who is cuter" conversation can apparently go on for hours and hours, it can even reset itself back to the beginning.

That being said, I would have to say that I enjoyed the movie. It is a romantic story aimed at teenage girls and it does that very well. But it was a good re-telling of the classic tragic love story with some modern twists to it to keep it interesting. Never was I bored or wishing I could leave, it was an overall good film.

I found the cinematography in the film was excellent. As well, the director used slow motion effectively in places and was particularly good at places two scene together in juxtaposition.

If you are in the target market or a fan of the books – go see it. My girls absolutely loved it and were giddy all the way home. According to them, it is pretty faithful to the book and not an “Eragon” style of book to movie. Yes, some scenes are slightly different and the lines are changed but overall it follows the essential parts of the book. If you are a parent looking at having to go for your daughter, relax and enjoy the flick. It isn’t Lost Boys, but it sparkles well in the light.

I don't see it when I go to private messages but since it is private, maybe you don't need to there.
