Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: into the mouth of .....


The mouth of the cave is set in the stone as the mouth of a demon. It is at least 20 feet wide and about 30 feet tall at the highest point. There is no signs of movement in or out of the cave and the entranceway shows signs of plant growth as if unattended for years.

However .....

As you approach the entrance, you can see only darkness, even those with vision suited for the dark cannot see anything within. It is like a curtain of blackness drawn across the mouth. It is also very cold within. as anyone who gets within 10 feet of the entrance can feel the temperature within the cave is frigid. It comes out like waves of coldness as warmth does from a fire.

But there is something more. The smell. There is a smell that comes from the mouth like decaying rodent feces and decomposing vegetation. It stinks badly.

OOC: Finarsil remembers that in the songs and stories of the Tomb of Horror the cave entrance lead to a large cavern with three entrances to the tome, only one was the actual way in, the other death traps. The cavern itself was guards by a Basilisk and a Behir - but both were slain before the party entered.

No one is possessed at the moment. We have not even reached the standing around looking silly stage.

If you wish to have your character "check out" the tomb's entrance before you enter, please let me know otherwise it will be a very short posting.

Subject: fast ship


Keep in mind that you have a fast ship. Your cruise speed is the hard burn of most mid-bulk transports. So unless Asante has a Arrowhead Courier ship, not much can match you and most people do not know that.

I will write my post on the basis that all the crew will be helping out with the search for surprises. More eyes, the better.

Ody is correct. You are out of the cave with the bridge and outside of the cave entrance to the tomb.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: Caves?


The party ran, jumped and flew out of the cave that was crumbling down around them. Out over the bridge and into the grassy area outside the cave entrance you moved and the cavern you were in collapsed completely behind you. If you were going for surprise - it was now lost.

Exposed to the mid-day sun was a black rubber mass with many writhing tentacles. The sheer weigh t and bulk of the creature could not be contained when the rock structure was fragmented. As the sunlight touches it, it shakes in pain and the flesh bubbles.

Maximus feels the leeches upon him stop their burrowing and start to do something almost as bad - tickling him. He dares to open his armour around his chest to find the sunlight affects the leeches in the same way. They start to smoke and die off.

There is now only one way to go, despite the joy of being in the afternoon sun once again. But the quest in that cave

Wait a minute! Noon day sun???

The sun is high in the sky and warm. You left less than a half hour ago and it was dawn at the castle. That mean either you lost half a day in time or you are somewhere on the other half of the world. No story or song ever said where the Tomb was, for obvious reasons but either way, you were running short on time.

OOC:
Arn – fully healed
Lun – Fine
Jar – Lightly wounded
Fin – Seriously wounded
Spa - Fine
Ody –Bearable
Max – Seriously wounded
Kad – healed

Topic: Tann's 2014 NFL U Pick'em Game
Subject: 60%


I think there are a few factors that put me in the 60% range. One is that I don't think the dice roller is truly random, it goes low quite a bit so it may that the first team listed won more often than not.

As well, after awhile I did not pick teams that always seemed to lose. Tampa Bay seems to be the Maple Leafs of the football world so I stopped picking them even when the dice rolled.

Anyway, thanks for the game, it was fun. Kinda glad I came in last because otherwise whoever did might have felt real bad.

Subject: reminder


Sanders told you to speak to Virgil first and to expect delays as the Valley is not fully cleared of un-exploded land mines, ordinance and munitions from the war. So you may wish to leave Havelock behind on the initial journey. You were also told that there is an Alliance outpost here commander by a Sally Wu who is known as a by the book type.

You may remember way way back to the first adventure you played in Frisco and there was some debate as to whether to get a sheriff or ask for an alliance outpost. The argument was the alliance outpost was cheaper (you don't for them) but they then to be very black and white about laws. A sheriff you have to pay but you can have him enforce your own town laws. Rarely do the two exist in the same town.

A good example is a town might want to set a "no guns" law. A sheriff could enforce that rule but an alliance outpost would not. However if a gang rode into town shooting up the place, alliance will sweep in and arrest everyone while a sheriff would know the locals from the bad guys.

As soon as Wembley moves to the cabinet to climb up and towards the ceiling portal, an alarm sounds loudly and the portals to the room all turn red.

Suddenly, four metal men appear. They look like iron statues only they are moving towards you with metal fists raise. This reminds you of the fabled Iron Golems except these Iron men are only 3 feet tall. Still, they are moving towards you from the portals to attack.

Topic: Destiny's Flight - A Serenity RPG
Subject: up and at them


Despite being put to sleep and waking up in a different room, Angela managed quite well to adjust and once she started watching the vid of her explaining life as she knew herself, the rest of the crew calmed down and Grace was able to put in her 108 digit code to unlock the ship's computer and navigation.

“You’re…Grace, right?”

The statement was not lost on any member of the crew. A simple recognition but for Angela, this was a huge step even if she did not realize it. but there were pressing matters that had to be attended to and they could not be put off. Stephanie asked Catie for assistance to get blood samples from all the crew and take samples of the remaining steak as well. She wanted to know what hit them and how.

The passengers were coming to now and were equally upset at being drugged. JC searched the ship (along with the Brothers and Seth if he is willing to have their help). Asante was not on board but a space suit was missing from the lockers and the upper hatch near the shuttle had been opened about an half hour after you all were drugged. All her personal possessions were left behind except a make kit and clutch bag (based on JC memory of the contents). Searching the contents, you find that many of her shoes had break away heels with devices hidden within. As well, her bag had a hidden bottom with several compartments, now all empty.

Tess confirms that a signal was sent during your down time from a device in the ship. It was not long and most likely Asante signalling her ship.

Stephanie and Catie worked their samples in the lab and discovered a number of things. The drug in the steak is a designer one that is similar to Byphodine that slows the metabolic rate to the point of seeming dead. This one was genetically enhanced to work quickly and not as deeply. Catie Stephanie theorize that this is why Angela might have remembered something because it doesn't induce sleep patterns but keeps the mind on a "standby" mode. The drug was activated by heat so even if you checked the steaks before, chances are you would not have caught it.

Grace made a discovery in the engine room though. The panel door to one of the electrical panel was not closed properly. It had a bad latch but Grace was so used to pulling it up and closing that she did not replace it, but she never left it open and it was now. Once she investigated, she found a small device like the tracker you had found before but this was a small explosive with a timer set for 24 hours. Had it blown, it would have meant stopping to rewire the system which would have delayed you.

I am going to assume you will look on the cortex for a map of Serenity Views and the location of Morningstar. Just to get the map posted and the chance for you to decide who is going to talk to him and who is doing other things.
