I have not heard from Robert on this topic. You all know his PM and email - fill free to share the love.

Maybe I don't have to re-jig the game. We didn't get far and I might be able to do a summary of events and have you move forward. Left Freegate, long trip, rain, attacked by uber powerful anime demons, All of you died - or worst. You awoke in cornfield, stepped back a few days in time somehow.

I will update the game in the next couple of days and move you to (as you probably guessed) the only way into the castle. I figure I best move things along before the game turns into Alacrity's Romance - Heaving Bosums Three.

Let's see - Olan, Pekka, Albert, Lance, Bob and I think Cathy would love to play "her litte psychopath" again. We got the fighters! We got the cleric! We got the artillery!

Now I need to tweak the beginning of the game again. Not sure we can continue where we last left off as there was reality bending going on.

Subject: Important News


Due to recent event in Olan's life, he has decided to leave the inn permanently. In order to keep this site going, I have purchased the domain for him and will continue on as webmaster from this point. I am not as up on web design as Olan, but I am sure that my high school BASIC and FORTRAN will see me through.

My first step will be to make this site as revenue neutral as possible, with the introduction of paid membership. Basic Membership will remain free of course, but features like chat and forum use will be regulated to paying customers. Karma will play a part in deciding fees for membership, those with high applauds will receive discounts, and those with high smites will be charged more. Further down the road, I foresee a "mature" section to the site for more adult oriented role playing and artistry - for a fee of course.

Member that do not contribute to the site will be banned after two months of inactivity.

So there you have it. I welcome any comments or questions as long as they are positive in nature, otherwise you will be banned.

Yours Truly,
The New Webmaster

If Lance is willing to take the role on and the writing, than I would prefer that for now. If we have not heard abck for YO by the end of April, then we will look to a more permanent switch or change.

Subject: What to do.


Okay, so we have not seen the return of YeOlde. I thin kwe need to have an open discussion of what to do at this point. I don't want this game to die now that it has been revived so it has to move forward and I don't want to stall any more. So these are the options I see so far.

1) I can NPC the Professor until YeOlde returns. The other possibility is one of you could take the NPC job so I don't become a deciding voice in the party's actions.

2) I try to get someone to take the character over, either temp or perm. I have not had much luck in that before as people don't want to play other people's characters or I get someone who joins everything and anything then treats it like anime cosplay. Best bet would be to find a Mod or near-mod who can role play and doesn't mind steppin gaway if YO returns.

3) You could just leave Andrew in jail. Murder? Whoa. Sucks to be you dude but we got to go .....

4) We could play with the time/space continuum and have Mr. Bowman disappear or replace him with a new character in jail with a connection to you. (Yeah, I'm not fond of this one but it sometimes has to be done)

I want to have faith that YeOlde will return, but I have waited for others before that have not. So please sound off on this so I know what everyone is thinking.

Day Three, Newhouse Jail, Beylix, 11:00 am

The sheriff seems to relax a bit, even goes as far as putting down his shotgun to reach into the cabinet and bring out a bought of fine whiskey.

“What in the gorram hell’re you thinkin’, puhn yoh?!” Samgrumbled nervously, “Come a-stompin’ in a place rackin’ shells inta dog-humpin’ Betsy’s brother an’ gettin’ a fella all twitchy! Ni Ta Ma De! Tian Xia Suo You De Ren Dou Gai Si!”

“Oh. I am so sorry about that. Think of it as an occupational hazard of being a sheriff. I find that if you go in any situation expecting trouble, then chances are you can only be mildly disappointed when you don’t find any. Drink?”

“Pardon, Sheriff,” Sung interjected as he waved off any offer of drink and decided to wait upon meeting this Luke character before folding, or showing his cards. “This feller you have in your mighty fine hospitality…what’s he being duly processed over? If’n you don’t mind me askin’, that is.”

“Ah, yes. Mr. Bowman is in for murder. He claims self –defence and most of the evidence points that way but there is a slight problem of witnesses not seeing a gun in the other man’s hand and a complete lack of motivation for said man to be trying to kill Mr. Bowman. I take it you know each other? Did the Kessel run in less than 12 parses together or some thing like that I’d imagine.”

“Excuse me?” John Blake interrupted, “when might we meet Mr. pearson so we can proceed with our business arrangements?”

“Hmm?” the sheriff looked at the banker, “Oh yes. Ken, would you run out and rustle up Luke for these here gentleman?”

“Sure thing Sheriff.” Weaver replies, as he gets up and heads for the door.

Day Three, Outside Newhouse Jail, Beylix, 11:00 am

Wolf steps back as the door opens and the deputy almost barrels him down from running so fast. The lawman spares a polite nod to the mechanic before taking off down the street hollering “Luke! Luke! There some people to see you!”

Since the door is open and the inside is looking more casual like, Wolf enters the jailhouse, looking over to Wyatt for a cue as to whether everything is alright. The Captain has a air of tenseness around him, but Wolf can rightly remember when the Captain didn’t look tense.


Day Three, Leaving Rocinante, Beylix spaceport, 11:00 am

Are you doing something important? Oh, I bet it is! Do tell me, James, I find important men are oh so… ” Willow’s voice dropped to a throaty purr, “irresistible!”

“Very important,” James says secretively, “But I can’t tell you any detail or else B…, I mean I wouldn’t want to endanger you by telling you too much.”

As you walk away from the ship and head down the main street of Newhouse, Jimmy goes on to tell you that he is meeting a man at this Bar, who has some sort of key that Jimmy plans on buying from him. He seems to believe that this key will lead to great adventures and wealth for him but he is very vague as to the how’s and why’s.

Topic: Save The Princess, Save The Wyrm
Subject: Be our guest, be our guest


As soon as you have taken a moment to recover your breath, the bugbears start to dissolve away just as the kobolds had before, leaving behind only greasy stains where the once ugly creatures laid. Crow is robbed of his chances to loot the bodies or fine some tell-tale symbols of their origins.

Peter recovers enough to push aside any aid offer and attends to Brandr’s wounds. Once he has cleaned the wound he applies himself to prayer and dras upon the power of his god to heal. Brandr’s wound close easily and he is filled with the healing magic that both soothes him and makes him a bit drowsy.

When Peter asks for assistance, Brandr aids him with the knowledge of wounds that a warrior gains over time. He helps the cleric clean the wounds and bind them, after which Peter applies the healing magic to himself.

Derry and Noctus work upon freeing the prisoner from her confines. She is a human lady, in her forties you would guess with fading blonde hair and an attractive face. Judging by her uniform, you would guess she is part of the serving staff, most likely someone in charge. You remember that the townsfolk had told you that the head of staff was named Rachel.

"Ahh, milady. Doest thou slumber in sweet repose alight with pleasant dreams or do vile creatures torment you and fill your mind with nightmares?" Noctus lightly brushed her cheek and looked for any response.

Her eyes flutter open and she looks around in wonder. Her blue eyes seem to be unfocused and she blinks a great deal before pulling herself into a sitting position.

(assuming some sort of reassuring statement)

Suddenly, she leaps from the table she was sitting at and starts to twirl around as if dancing. All the while she sings loudly “I’M A LITTLE TEAPOT, SHORT AND STOUT. HERE IS MY HANDLE, HERE IS MY SPOUT.”

She doesn’t seem to understand where she is or her surrounding as she bumps into tables and trips over objects in her view. Clearly she is a danger to herself and if you try to bring her with you, a danger to you as well.

Subject: I know that feeling


Had a bout of stomach problems this week past.

Since Dragonblood is over two weeks without a post, I have asked a ringer to come in and assume his character until he returnes or gets word to me. Vanadia, my lovely and talented wife, shall be playing Peter Elliot until such time. Some of you have gamed with Vanadia so you know she is a excellent role player who can assume any role quite well.

Crow, I will NPC until Tann returns from medical leave. If it becomes a burden I will look to another ringer if necessary but I can usually carry one player well without causing too much mischief.

Subject: Dying time, flying high, what a rhyme


Brandr dodged a blow aimed to take his head off and struck a back hand with his axe, deep into the bugbear’s leg. It roared with pain and bloodlust, guttural curses pouring from its mouth like water from a rain trough.

Ela moved and fired her bow. The first arrow shot wide but the second two embedded themselves in the back of the bugbear as it screamed. Remarkably, it still moved, hobbling on one good leg and bleeding profusely through its wounds.

Without a pause, the Ranger brushed aside the attack with his sword and then ended the creature’s life with a swift thrust through the side and up the torso. It fell to the ground and laid still finally, its cake encrusted face looking blindly to the sky.

The bugbear was intend on murder when suddenly the lights when out. Noctus moved across the field, to flank the creature and protect his fallen comrade while it struggled to remove the cloak from its head. When it did, it attacked at Noctus with a fierce chopping blow that would have disembowel the Swashbuckler had he been slower but as it was the Syl barely dance out of the way in time to strike with the rapier a glancing blow.

Crow saw his opportunity and seized it as the blinded bugbear turned its back on him. From the terrace he leapt into the air and hit the ground to tumble and spin into backstab attack. The two short swords plunged deep through unprotected areas under the arms and sides. The bugbear tried to throw him off but Crow held tight until the vitals of the creature were severed and he rode the beast to the ground.

The battle was over and all was calm again. It was time to attend to wounded team mates and see what the sleeping prisoner might have to tell you.

Party
Peter – Critical Wounds
Brandr – Serious Wounds
Derry – No damage
Ela- No damage
Noctus – Will have to wash his cloak
Crow – No damage

Day Three, Newhouse Jail, Beylix, 10:50 am

The deputy looked over at Wyatt and Sam talking to Andrew. “I’m sorry gentlemen, I thought you were together with them.” He says pointing the coffee pot towards the Frisco businessmen.

“They are with us.” Blake replied, following the end of the coffee pot with his cup.

“Well, they’re with us but they aren’t part of us.” Shem corrected

“I think that the arrangement and their willingness to assist in this endeavour is more than enough to show some solidarity in our businesses.” Blake retorted dismissively.

“Huh?” the deputy looked back and forth.

Cha-chung The door opens and the sound of a shotgun pump draws everyone’s attention to the man who walked into the room, a balding middle age man with a gold star on his chest. “What I would like to know is what your business is!” he says loudly and with an accent. “Excuse gentleman standing near the prisoners! May I ask you to please step back and disarm yourselves before approaching your captured acquaintance? He seems like a very well mannered man but I’d rather not dangle a carrot before him or anyone else awaiting due process.” The sheriff glares at the deputy who looks sheepishly towards his shoes before turning.

“Sorry folks. I should have said something but my attention was diverted. Just step back over here and put the guns on the counter if you want to speak to Mr Bowman.”

The sheriff looks over to the three businessmen, “So what’s your story?”

“They want to hire Luke to be their sheriff in their hometown” the Deputy calls over before anyone can answer.

He looks to the Deputy and then to the three, and back again. His face changes from its harsh glare to joy “Really! Well I can’t say that you’d find a better, more upstanding individual. Would you like coffee? Something harder perhaps after all, it is a bit of the celebration.”

Outside the jailhouse, Wolf decided to sit tight and wait. There was no reason to think there would be trouble, but if there was, being on the outside would prevent any nasty surprises. He moved closed to the doorway to better hear inside, looking around for people as he did.

Day Three, Rocinante, Beylix spaceport, 10:45 am

“James, darling,” Willow purred,” I almost gave up waiting for you. Where shall we go first? You look like you have somewhere to be, but perhaps you could take helpless little me to Emmet’s Bar, afterwards? I’m ever so thirsty for something that wasn’t distilled in the engine block.”

James was clearly startled by Willow’s words. His face showed the fear as clear as the sunlight. “How did you know…” He trailed off and cleared his throat. In the back of his mind he was having an internal conflict but he seemed to resolved it, “Why of course, my lovely lady. I understand completely now that we are no longer in the Black and your over protective band of brothers aren’t around anymore. As it just happens, I am going to that establishment myself for some personal business, and with you by my side, it can only go better for me. Shall we go then?” he says offering his arm.
