Subject: with returner


I have to agree with Returner, you gotta give this a chance as it is a bold move. Besides, Simon Pegg as Scotty could steal the entire movie.

Also agree with you on Bond. Anyone see QofS yet>?

Well that is good then. And I love that picture of the constitution class Enterprise - Parabolic intact and everything.

Could be good.

that better not be the Enterprise because it is not the same ship! It should have the parabolic deflector generator!

Okay....I'm a geek.

Topic: Pharaoh
Subject: You've been naughty......


You open your eyes and close them again in pain from the bright light. It is hot and you are kneeling in sand. Your head feels like it is about to explode and your mouth tastes like a drunkard slept in it. Not the best way to start your day.

Squinting, you look around. Armed men, all with crossbows pointed at you and your companions, surround you. You see you are wearing the remains of the finery you put on last night before going to the Sultan’s party, but they are torn, dirty and tattered now. On the other side of the soldiers you can see your equipment and weapons piled in a heap.

You can remember going to the party, held n your honour by the Sultan for defeating the bandits. You remember a toast to your bravery, and to your cunning, and to your swift actions and after that everything gets fuzzy. What did you do to go from honoured guests to facing an execution?

It all began in what seems like a lifetime ago. It started with Longos the Magnificent.

Five adventurers brought together by a common cause – a paying job. You were hired to enter the lost tomb of Longos the Magnificent and find his staff. All treasure you found as yours to keep as long as you delivered the staff of Longos to your employer. You fought your way through the crypt, fending off all sorts of evil creatures and denizens of the underdark. In the final chamber you discovered that Longos wasn’t really all that dead. You struggled against his magic but he opened a portal beneath you and you ended up lost in a desert, not even knowing if you were in the same dimension let alone if you were close to home. You wandered for days until a group of soldiers riding Pegasi found you and brought you to the Oasis of the White Palm. Ruled by Sultan Zoltan, the Oasis was a large paradise in the wasteland and a central trading post for many tribes of nomads. The Sultan was a rich powerful man and he fought you to be interesting with your different ideal and beliefs. You became his guests and enjoyed a luxurious life while trying to find a way home.

But the Sultan’s advisor –Visier Pfizer, grew to hate you all. He saw you as an evil influence and sought to banish you from the lands. But the Sultan dismissed his warnings and enjoyed your many discussions.

Then you heard of the bandit problem. A group of religious extremists called “Dervishes” were plaguing the trade routes. Visier Pfizer was in charge of dealing with these trespassers but was having difficulty as they moved in, attacked and left so quickly that they could not be caught. Out of boredom, your party decided to help with the effort, and by sheer luck, found a large grouping of the bandits, defeated them and brought back captives to question. That was why the Sultan threw the party.

The sounds of crossbow bolts being pulled back bring you back to reality. A man walks up to stand before you and opens a scroll in his hands. You wish the scroll wasn’t so loud.

“Know ye. By order of his majesty, Sultan Zoltan, ruler and trustee of this realm. Those foreigners assembled here are hereby charged with many serious crimes against the realm and the Sultan himself.

Whereas those accused did act in a manner most unseemly during a festival held in their honour, arguing and fighting among the subjects and visitors. That they did organize a camel race through the Sultan’s humble abode, disrupting the Sultan’s sleep and a private dictation between the royal mage and his personal assistant.

Whereas one member did chase the Sultan’s harem girls through his tents, holding a pair of silver tongs and screaming ‘Piranha Attack!’

Whereas another did organize a drinking game with the Sultan’s personal bodyguards that left them too drunk to fulfill their duties.

Whereas another female member did spread rumours among the Sultan’s wives of the ideas of personal freedom and rights.

Therefore, be it decreed that said persons are banished from our lands. Any attempt to reenter will result in immediate execution, with choice being death by hanging, death by fireball, death by lightening.”

The soldier rolls up the scroll and tucks it back in his belt. He steps a bit closer and leans down to re-tie the laces on his boot. As he does, he whispers to you, so only you can hear him.

“I must follow orders or risk death to myself and my family. But I cannot leave you to die in the desert. To the east, beyond these dunes there are the horses and supplies of five bandits. Take what you need, travel by night, sleep during the day. May Osiris guide you to safety.”

He gets up and rejoins the ranks. “Take your possessions and leave us now!” he says loudly. The soldiers keep their weapons on you as you gather your stuff. Thankfully they have not held back anything and you fine all that belongs to you. With no choice left other than the firing squad, you begin to trek eastwards, hung over and the heat of the desert growing hotter and hotter.

After a half-hour of walking you see a very small oasis with five horses and a mule tethered to a palm tree. The bandits lie dead nearby – the soldier was telling the truth.

My Son William is sick yet again so my time is occupied for the next little while. They do get sick alot in the first year.

Also this weekend he goes for the big dunk (baptism) so it may be Sunday or early next week before I can get us moving. I will post to this thread first as I have neglected it the longest.

Sorry - i though tI did answer that.

No, clerics do not have to pick spells. You may pray for any spell on the list and your god zaps it to you. Unlike mages, you are restricted to the so many per level per day.

Subject: Okay


Skari is out. So we have a party with two fighters, a thief, a mage and a cleric. That is pretty well rounded plus we have Grugg joining later in the game.

So, do you want to start now with the five member team, or shall I seek out a new person to join this game or I can add an expendable crew member (NPC)?

Power/monster of adventure is not a problem. I can adjust upwards or downwards as the situation requires.

Thoughts?

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: Moving along now


The next day comes and the party meets at the stables. You are given warm blankets and wraps to guard against the coming chill, as you will be traveling into the mountains where the weather turns nasty much sooner than Freegate. A couple of mules are provided as well to carry firewood and dried oats so you have the means to survive. As well, Dwan and Gwanele are present to give each of you a potion of Extra Healing, to help you on your quest. (I will sort out equipment and levels before the end of this week)

The first three days of travel pass without incident and you manage to find Waymeets along the way. They are not as well cared for as some, but they are sturdy and well stocked and the shelter is welcome. In fact, you meet no travellers on the roadways what so ever, and even the wildlife seems rather scarce. The weather remains sunny for those days but the night time turns very cold and you are glad for the extra firewood

On the evening of the fourth night, there is a great and violent thunderstorm. The ground shakes from the pure force of the elements. Although the lightning and thunder is powerful, the rain is actually lighter than you would expect in a storm.

On the fifth day, it continues to rain without the thunder or lightening. Again, it is not a hard rain that would cause you to pause an additional day at the Waymeet, but a cold mist-like rain that seeps into your travel cloaks and clothing, making you feel chilled to the bone. It is midday through this rain that you start to meet the first ones.

Mostly women and children – with a few older men coming from the south-east, the direction you taking. Fleeing the town, they have only meagre possessions and their own wits left. They see you coming and immediately flock to you, asking for help. They all tell of the same tale.

The town of Hevlorn was attacked. Not by an army or a large grouping of humanoids, but by these two men whom appeared in the night. One was a tall, robust man with long red hair, fancy red armour and a halberd. He seems to command fire and lightning from his weapon and flew through the air. The other, was a beast like creature with dark skin and huge talons that could jump great distances and tear apart the people without effort.

The men in the town stood their ground so that the women and children could make an escape. They have been running ever since – the attack was last night. The people are mystified that the priests of the town did not come out to help them. There is a temple of Heironeous near the castle ruins where the priests pray to contain the spirit of evil within the ruins. The priests never even left their temple; they stayed indoors and hid while innocent people were killed.


OOC: You are half a day journey away from Hevlorn, but with refuges blocking the path, you will not reach it until slightly before dusk. As far as you know, this is the only path to the town.

Missed nothing. I mostly need Robert and my lovely, beautiful and overworked wife to post.

But I can just flip it over to the next day easily enough.
