Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: Oops

The building was crumbling fast, of that there was no doubt. Everyone needed to find an exit and find it fast before becoming an epitaph.

Kilgim, Dapple and Char headed toward one window. The glass shattered before they reached it as if the building was anticipating their actions. With a nimble leap, Dapple was through the window with ease. Kilgim thrust himself forward to only reach about halfway to the windowsill. The warrior muttered to himself in dwarven as Dapple turned to aid the dwarf and Char did the same from behind. The cleric was up and over and Char wasted no time getting past the window, rolling to the ground outside.

Adrian finds himself in a moral dilemma and can’t leave the fallen red mage behind. He scoops her up as gentle as he can at speed and heads for the window. Her body is limp in his hands, and her eyes stare unfocused upon anything. Her skin is a grayish hue. He’s seen it before - Wizard’s Twilight. She used too much of her life force to cast magic. But Adrian has also seen mages recover for the twilight so he will not give up.

This is a good death the little mage thinks to himself, satisfied that at least in his sacrifice, his friends will live and he can be with Wynter at long last. He could feel her beside him now, calling to him, almost shouting but Jal couldn’t hear her as he concentrated on the….

“OOOFFF” The air blew out from Jal’s mouth as the great big lug of a Gladiator grabbed him quite easily.

Concentrate on the spell, I will get us out of here” Maximus says heading for the other side of the room. Jal struggled to maintain the spell but there was no hope. The building was coming down completely.

Maximus threw himself and his charge at the window but the wall and building was coming down. The mage and Warrior crashed to ground outside as Maximus threw himself through the open window. The building starts to come down to the north, directly towards where Arien and his enemy are fighting. Then something happens, a wave of force hits the taower and there is dust and dirt everywhere,. You are blinded but all the dust in the air and coughing from inhaling it.


Outside the battle continued between Arien and Dalmer. The Knight tried his best to land a blow upon his opponent but that damned green scaled arm deflected every attack and lunge he made. Not only was this commander moving incredibly fast but he seemed to know Arien’s fighting style completely.

Arien was struck hard across the back of the helmet with the flat of Green’s sword.His vision blurred and he staggered back, reeling from the blow when the impossible happened. Dalmer used his demonic arm for an overhand blow, braking Arien’s shield in two. The Thedell Shield – the shield of his father was broken, hanging useless from the straps that previously held it to his arm.

Then the tower came down. It had seems to slow for awhile, but then it gave way complete and fell directly towards Arien and Dalmer. The commander sneered at the distraction and waved his green hand at the tower. As if hit by a wave of immense force, the tower broke apart, sending rumble and debris flying off on all directions.

The dust is blinding. Everyone is cover in a layer of dirt as sand falls from the tower and the sky. Arien hears Dalmer cry out loud, “I can’t work with all these distractions!”

As the dust settles, the dark night sky can be seen. There, floating in the air above you, where the tower once stood is Alloryn, dressed in a Red Imperial uniform, and a silver collar around her neck. She appears to be struggling, almost writhing in the air, and it could be a trick of the light, but it seems like the remains of dust in the air form an almost dragon like shadow around her body. All around her is a green glow, which pulsates faintly.

“No!” Dalmer shouted, “It is too close to dawn! You fools, you will doom us all”

OOC: Kilgim, Dapple and Char are on the west side, Maximus, Jal, Adrian and Wind are all on the east side. You are all very dirty but no more damaged from before. If you wish to find Arien, it will take you more than a round to get through the rumble and dirt. Arien, your shield is truly broken and can longer be used in this combat. However, Dalmer is distracted right now.

I have talked to Cdnflirt and will be reviewing a "sample" post to see if she gets the jist of the character.

YeOlde - Please send me the character when you are done so I can see the fit with the team.

I don't want to lose Sam as I hold out eternal hope of Rob returning. However, I have thought of an easy way to write Sam out temporarily, so I can swing either way. I will go with the option that best suits the game and the other players.

Subject: Earth Hour - March 29th, 8:00 pm

I don't normally do this, but this is a movement I feel strongly about. Pardon my shill ...

On 31 March 2007, 2.2 million people and 2100 Sydney businesses turned off their lights for one hour - Earth Hour. If the greenhouse reduction achieved in the Sydney CBD during Earth Hour was sustained for a year, it would be equivalent to taking 48,616 cars off the road for a year.

With Sydney icons like the Harbour Bridge and Opera House turning their lights off, and unique events such as weddings by candlelight, the world took notice. Inspired by the collective effort of millions of Sydneysiders, many major global cities are joining Earth Hour in 2008, turning a symbolic event into a global movement.

So join the movement - turn your lights and power off for an hour. Created to take a stand against the greatest threat our planet has ever faced, Earth Hour uses the simple action of turning off the lights for one hour to deliver a powerful message about the need for action on global warming.

This simple act has captured the hearts and minds of people all over the world. As a result, at 8pm March 29, 2008 millions of people in some of the world’s major capital cities, including Copenhagen, Toronto, Chicago, Melbourne, Brisbane and Tel Aviv will unite and switch off for Earth Hour.

Subject: Robert

Unfortunately, I have heard nothing from Rob in so long, including direct emails to him asking him if he is coming back. In this campaign, I have been slow to post partially because I was waiting (though the baby delayed things mostly). So, yes, Jal may be sacrificing himself for the team unless I hear from him soon.

It is harder in my Firefly/Serenity game, as he plays a pivotal role, and I hate NPCing a major player.

Rocinante, Frisco Landing Pad, 12:30 PM RST

Asher looked at the chrono once again. It hadn’t been that long since the captain left, but he was getting bored fast. Trish was off in the kitchen cleaning and sorting stuff out and there was only so much of that a young man could take. He had already cleaned all the guns he had brought up and was putting them back in the case when there was a light tapping on the door to the cargo bay. He had to listen carefully at first, to make sure he had heard it before going over to the hatchway door.

Looking through the glass he could see a lady was standing outside. She was close to his own age, perhaps younger. She was short with long black hair tied black in a single pony-tail, her tanned skin and rugged clothing spoke of a workers life but she sure was purdy though. Them blue eyes of hers seemed to sparkle but she looked like she was hesitant. She was just turning to go when Asher opened the door to look out at her.

(assuming some sort of question as to why she’s here)

“I’m sorry. I was just… I mean I was hoping to speak to..Are you the captain? I need help something fierce and I don’t know where else to turn. I don’t have much money but I can work real hard. But work that is, not anything else! I’m not like that kind of …well you know.” She trails off and looks up at you helplessly.

OCC: Something for Blammm to get into...

Subject: Brigit

She is not local, but came from off world less than a year ago. She managed to attach herself to JW McClarrin, the mine's owner, within a few months and was soon tossing about that she was his fiancee. JW ain't denying things but he is off world himself a whole lot because he's a member of parliment now.

Now those who like to talk, they see a lot to tak about in Brigit. She seems to know everyone and everyone's business. She can play the weak and helpless but then again, there was that time that that Ludlow fellow was coming on strong and she faceplanted him with some fancy moves.

Some think that she isn' the faithful type either - with a real weakness towards the bad type. We ain't talking the wearing black bad boys either,but the real rough and tumble baddies than infest these lawless places like Frisco. But then again, she the one that has been pushing JW to hire a sheriff to get some law and order in this town. So take it as you want, and remember that talk is cheap when the story is good and the target is a fine sight -prettier than most.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: One building -going down

The Green officer closed in on Arien with sword and green arm at ready. He struck with the sword, an easy blow delivered out of anger that Arien deflected easily. The man was fighting like a soldier, an accomplished swordsman, but not the tricks and moves of a Green. The knight countered with a strong swipe at the man’s head, just to see how fast the enemy could move. The colonel blocked the blow casually with the green scaled arm. Hitting it was like strike a stone wall. The solidness of the deflection almost wrenched the blade out of Arien’s hands. Reeling from the blow, the Green attacks with his blade, but Arien’s armour saved him from any real damage.

Inside, the party was caught between the crumbling building and two invisible battle mages. Kilgim having finished healing Maximus looks over to Dapple, but sees that the Rogue has recovered enough himself. "We've no time t'fight 'em in 'ere. Let's get outta 'ere. Now!" The Dwarf calls out while running towards Dapple. As the cleric approaches he sees that Dapple is moving, having drunk a potion herself so he continues onwards shouting his warnings.

“What did I miss?” Dapple rasped, her tongue thick in a dry mouth.

"Arien's gone," Char muttered. "Tru da wall, an' we go' invisible wizar's somewhere in 'ere."

The tower emphasizes his point with sounds of buckling above and the stone and mortar starting to crack. With a dramatic bang, the stairwell up to the next floor loosens in its moorings and come falling to the ground, not far from Where Jal is standing as if in a daze. The small mage seems to be listening to other voices and ignores the chaos around him. He begins to chat the incantation of a spell while looking at the roof.

Adrian casts a detect invisibility in time to see one of the Red’s is running out of the room, through the only exit to the south. The other is Wind, who is busy casting a spell. Although not an expert on evocation magic, Valentine recognizes the gestures of this particular spell and realizes the dangers – the explosive force of the fireball will rip apart the tower. The Battle Mage immediately starts a counter spell with as much haste and speed that can be managed.

The spells are released, with Valentine’s shortly behind that of the Red. She appears again as the fireball takes shape and is fired directly towards Jal. The Mage’s skin is so pale and she crumbles to the ground as spell is complete. Then Adrian’s spell counters toe energies, dispelling the mana of the spell into a fine mist and eliminating the danger.

Jal finishes his spell a few seconds afterwards, and the tower seems to stop buckling – or at least slows down. A piece of plaster falling suddenly slows down and floats to the ground. With a voice of desperation, Jal calls out to his friends and companions. “Run! Get out while you can! I can’t hold this for long!”

OOC: Exits – There is the door to the south (along the 40 foot corridor) or you have windows on the east and west walls. Dapple, Kilgim, Maximus and Char are closest to the southern entrance, and the west window. Jal in in the centre, Adrian is closest to the east window but the crumbled Wind is close to the east window.
