Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Q&A
Subject: At least


Now when you guys complain about the whole party about to die, yada yada yada - you'll have a reason to be that paranoid. I have killed off the entire party before.

BTw - The post between - Everyone in the party got the sense of that being said just as you died. No idea who, but somone or aomething said "Well that didn't work." just befoe you opened you eyes and found yourself in a cornfield.

Subject: Row row row your boat.....


Corn….

You are standing in a field of corn. The air is cool, but the morning sun beams down upon you. In the distance is a town near the mountains. On top of the mountain is a ruined castle. You are on the edge of Hevlorn, by the looks of things. Only it isn’t destroyed or burned. It seems to be just fine – like you. Your horses are a ways behind you, and they are all horses, not a Pegasus among them. It is like you tethered them up before head out into…

What the….

You find yourself in a field of late harvest corn as if coming out of the worst dream of your life and you were sleep walking. You look around you and see all your companions safe and sound. No one is dead. No one is even injured. But it seemed so real, the battle with the demon brothers. All around is evidence that you have been moving like the dream was real. Corn plants cut in half, a lance plunged into the ground, and a scarecrow that looks like Dapple attempted to kick and got her foot caught in the burlap of its body.

A distance from you, there is an older man holding a pitchfork in front of him like you were about to attack him. Behind him is a younger woman, very attractive and with some Sueli Barbarian blood judging by her white hair and paleness. The old man calls over to you, “What are you doing in my corn?”

OOC: Okay. What were you guys smoking last night? Pretty weird stuff if you ask me.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: And so it ends


Maximus felt something was wrong. Even as he pressed his attack against this huge demon with it super fast healing power and razor sharp claws, he felt that this couldn’t be real. His vorpal blade sheared through yet another hair on the creatures head and it reacted like the gladiator had struck a vital blow. It screamed incoherently with rage and its eyes turned blood eye.

This isn’t real. This isn’t happening. Maximus thought and tried to find a clue to the truth in his surrounding. For a second he saw corn – a field of corn and his mother standing in the distance waving to him. But that was impossible because ….

The distraction proved fatal to Maximus as the demon’s claws tore thorough his chest and out of his spine. Screaming in fury about his lovely head of hair and his flowing locks, the ugly monster literally ripped Maximus in two and tossed the pieces across the street. With barely a moment’s pause, the demon leaped through the air upon Kilgim, ignoring the bite of the axes into its flesh. It opened its oversized mouth and bit off the dwarf’s head with barely an effort – slaying poor Kilgim before he could recover from the shock of Maximus’ death.

Adrian took to the air with a fly spell only to get a birds eye view of the destruction of two of his companions. Three of the party was dead now – it did not bode well for the rest of them. He wondered where Dapple was – if the young boy was still in the house or also met a fate like Char or the others.

The flying demon throws a bolt at Arien, this time striking the knight with the energy of the weapon. But the protection that Kilgim had placed upon the knight absorbs the deadly energy, causing it to dissipate harmlessly. The enraged demon becomes frustrated, stamping his foot in the air, “You think …you are … all that! Well…I know …another way…to harm …you!” He gestures with his polearm towards Adrian as he takes flight, and the battle mage is engulfed in lightening. While Valentine screams, the demon fires bolt after bolt until there is nothing left of Adrian except dust in the wind.

Inside the house, Dapple is unaware of the fate of her companions, concentrating on this creature before her that seemed to flaunt all that she reviled. “Get outta my head and back to hell!” as she attacks. She slashes viciously at the demon but it dodges her attacks easily. She follows up with a roundhouse kick to its head, hoping to strike at the face that could not be hers. The demon didn’t dodge this blow, but threw herself into it, as if blocking with her oversized chest. Dapples foot passed through the flesh like it was putty and then finds that she cannot break free from the hold. The demon smiles and her flesh rippled as it sucks dapple foot first into her body. Dapple desperately attempts to break free but cannot do anything except be dragging.

“You reject your heritage, but in the end, you must accept it! The woman yells at her. For a moment, Dapple can see Fast Ties face looking at her, then Char’s. Whatever its visage, it continues to cry out as Dapple is drawn in, “You must accept to turn the key.”

Arien is almost overwhelmed with pain and remorse as he watches his friends killed one after another. He pushes grief and anger back from his mind and focuses on his enemy. He can not allow them to go unpunished. He must make them pay if it is the last thing he does with his dying breath. He readies his lance and commands Winston to charge, hoping to strike with wood – this demons only venerability. The Pegasus moves into a rapid dive, building speed and at the last moment, serves towards the white haired monster so Arien can strike hard and fast. The lance pieces its chest, the head and shaft driving through the body in a death blow. The demon howls in pain, like it had never experienced suffering before now. He thrashes around in agony like a pig on a spit, screeching like a banshee.

But then, with a heroic effort it plunges the head of the polearm into the flank of Winston. The Pegasus whines at the blow just before the demon delivers a bolt of energy directly through the vital organs of the flying horse. With a cry and a whimper, the Pegasus dies in mid-flight and Arien finds himself crashing to the ground, his sword bouncing across the laneway and his armour caving in on itself. The dead mount cushions enough of his fall that the knight is not killed but his legs hit at a bad angle are severely broken. Arien cannot get up; all he can do is move towards his sword by pulling his body with his arms across the dirt.

The ugly demon moves to Arien side as the fair one almost drops to the ground. The dark one puts his claw on his brother’s shoulder and pulls out the lance with the other. The wound immediately heals up, as if his healing ability can be transfer by touch.

“Shall we slay him now” The dark demon asks.

“No. I have …a better…idea.” He says while reaching into his robes. He draws out of a satchel a leather belt with a circular clasp coloured half pink, and half blue. “Remember …this…my brother?”

“The magical girdle of masculinity/femininity?”

“Yes…you did say…you wanted … a woman …tonight.”

“My brother! You think of everything, and she won’t be able to run away! My favourite kind!”

The laughter of demons is so loud that the screams of the knight are never heard.

Ensign Ro was on the Enterprise during the ST:TNG, pre-dominion so they must have served, perhaps independently. But Bajor didn't join the federation at the end of DS9.

I'm not sure of the wisdom of discussing the evilness of the Webmaster. Furthermore, I think the family dynamics of the said webmaster's family would be a topic best left undiscussed, as it is a breach of privacy. If she is away, she is away from the site. It is not our place to debate why or mock the situation.

Subject: Getting Dapple into the same time/space as rest


Stop your crying,” Dapple told the woman roughly, her voice low. “Others are worse off, if you hadn’t noticed. What is this place? Why are the demons guarding it?”

The woman started to rise and the sound that was crying turned to laughter. “Guarding? They are not guarding anything. They were protecting you from finding me!” She throws off her blankets and covering to reveal herself to Dapple. She looks human in form, but her ears are extremely elven, extending to half the size of her head, and well above the scalp. Her body is also an extreme of feminine, bearing a voluptuous figure that either defies gravity or has the aid of a corset of levitation. She wears no armour but has short cut dress of white and green that makes Dapple think of a school uniform. But what is most striking about her is her face, which is that of Dapple herself – a younger Dapple with hard evil eyes and a fierce grin on her face.

“Surprised?” the demon laughs cruelly, “You must have known that one day the monster would find a way to get out of you.” She mocked in the acid voice normally reserved for within Dapple’s head.

Penguin and Riddler are sort of joke villians. Two face is good but they killed that idea.

There was a comic of Batman dealing with a former vigilante come back. Don't remember the name but a red leather outfit and a skull head. I think it was Batman Year Two. That could be a good story.

Please keep in mind that we like everything on the Inn to be PG rated. So despite any warnings you may put at the start of a thread, you still need to keep the content suitable for that rating. Anyone can jump into a thread halfway and miss the warning.
