As I have said, I have been busy of late with RL. just bought a new car, trying to find new job, etc etc etc.

Anyway - I have posted and will try to keep up from here. I hope that I will here from Olan about Arien soon, as I would hate to have to find someone else to play him.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: In you go.


OOC: Tann has asked that his character’s name be changed to avoid confusion. Therefore Talas is now Maximas Meridias Jerale. Please update your notes and notify the media.

I have been very busy of late, so sorry about the delay.




Arien took in all that was said by Maximus (formerly Talas) and the surprising words of Dapple Moon. He shook his head and moved himself directly in front of the gladiator so they could have eye contact.

Arien’s words were calm and collected, but his eyes flashed of anger, “Maximus, you took this mission knowing the dangers, knowing the way we were taking in and knowing your companions. Now is not the time for you to be saying no and now is not the time to sow seeds of distrust. Adrian is with us and serves with us – put all else aside. All he has tried to do from the beginning is to be helpful. He is from the empire, yes, and he makes no apologies for that and I don’t ask him too. Dapple is from the empire, as is Jal. The lands I call home were imperial less than 75 years ago. We all agree the empire is evil, and has touched us all. I judge a man on his deeds, not his past. So if you cannot get pass these prejudices of yours, then leave now and await our return at the base camp. But if you are the better Man that, as I think you are, then drive out those feelings of fear and distrust, fill the void with courage and stand with me. My sister may be in that tower and she needs our help. I need you. She needs you. Are you with me?”

(Assuming Maximus is staying)

Dapple took the lead down the tunnel, with the other following behind. The old sewage trench was definitely not constructed by dwarves and it became big enough to be roomy even for Maximus and Arien. Those of you with military training come to realize this was probably build this way as a alternate route out of the keep, come a siege or an attack. This is confirmed when secret caches of rusty swords, spears and shields are found along the way.

Traveling the length of the tunnel, there is no sign of recent use. Soon Dapple reaches the end of the passageway, her elven eyes searching the way out. There is a small hole in the roof, certainly the former latrine area, but it is boarded up. Tearing out the boards would be very noisy and certainly attract attention.

Dapple feels around to see if there might be another passage or a secret door. The wall to the south reveals something of interest, when it starts to give way was she pushes against it. The bricks are stacked without mortar, and can be easily removed. Ever the caution one, Dapple checks over each brick as best she can, looking for trap mechanisms, but finds nothing. Wordlessly, she begins to silently remove the bricks, with Char moving beside her to help until a way is created.

Before you is a room. It is the old uniform storage from back when the tower was occupied. Shelves and wooden dowelling still hang here, but the contents are long removed. There is only one door out of this room, on the west wall. There is no one in the room, nor anything of interest. From above, you hear the sound of feet running back and forth, as well as objects being moved.

There is a scent in the air, of pine sap and astringent (think Pine Sol cleaning fluid). The smell is very strong but there is no source to it in the room. Whatever it is, it comes from something close by.

OOC: I sent maps out before, but let me know if you need another.

Subject: plot points


Playing to your complications will lead to you getting plot points that allow you to effect the story, save your bacon, or make better skill rolls. Example would be Asher using plots point to seduce Beth and hence a quick blurb of an evening has now fdrwan out into an adventure of its own.

Playing assets have bonuses built in, but good roleplaying in general leads to advancement points that you can use to gain more skills, or better at the skill you already have.

Due to a grouping of birthday parties and social events, Cat and I will not be able to post until late Sunday, most likely Monday. I am awaiting word from Olan as to who will play Arien in the next post, Olan or I.

Playing with myself jokes will lead to sudden and immediate death.

Subject: Silver Screen - Dalmer and Alloryn


Dalmer didn’t want to sleep. His dream of late had been filled with knights in shining armour coming to slay him. Knights with flaming swords, really bright armour and the whole thing made him shudder. Like some gods damned fairy tale Tonight’s activities had provided a welcome chance to avoid slumber. “What happened here?” he demanded.

“She …the prisoner managed to unscrew the hinges off the door using the buckles of her uniform. We caught her trying to get out through the kitchen.”

Dalmer shook his head, “Resourceful isn’t she? Where is she now?”

“We returned her to her room and tied her to the bed. I hit her with some tox to make her quiet.”

Dalmer’s hand lifted and the soldier found himself in the air, float as it were, “You gave her what?”

“Umm…..ahhh…just a bit of tox sir.”

Dlamer twisted his hand and the soldier screamed in pain. A small voice in the back of his head told him to stop, but he didn’t listen. With simple gestures he tore off the limbs of the soldier one by one the dropped the torso on the ground. “Untouched! I said untouched!” Dalmer said though grinding teeth. He stepped over the dying body of the soldier and hurried to the stairs leading up to the room.

He entered the dark room. The sword was on the floor beneath the bed and the girl was sleepin gin a drugged slumber. The rage within him would not be unanswered, “Get up!” He commanded.

The girl opened her eyes and tried to stand. the soldiers had tied her up to the bed. Dalmer waved his hand that the bonds broke one by one. She stood up and took a few steps. Every movement was resisted to the last and Dalmer saw the defiance in her eyes. Part of him admired the spirit, while another fantasized about breaking it. “Take the sword in your hands.” He commanded.

Alloryn stepped slowly, like a summoned undead staggering from the grave. The emperor had said the action had to be of free will, but Dalmer no longer cared. She’d take it and she’d do what he wanted. The mage stopped before the sword and then finally stooped down to grasp the hilt.

The colonel found himself on the ground. A wave of energy hit him like a club. His green left arm throbbed with power. He rolled quickly and stood again. Looking at the girl in the dark.

He eyes had changes to a glowing green. The wave had come from her, form the spirit that now was in possession of her body. The necklace of command strained as if being pulled apart at the seams.

‘I order you to stop!” he shouted

“I WILL NOT BE CONTAINED!” A cold feminine voice came from within the girl. The sword dropped to the floor from her limp hands.

Dlamer found himself being lifted up. This was unexpected for he had been told that without light, she’d have no power. Clearly someone had the wrong information about the spirit. He focused the power of his hand, and lifted the girl up as well, then threw her against the closet wall as hard as he could muster. It seemed to work as he found himself on the ground again. Not waiting for a second chance, he brought the girl up and smashed her again into the wall, and again, and a third time to be sure. He let the limp body of the girl slump to the floor. Damn. This wasn’t the plan. The Emperor will not be pleased

The hatch to the room opened and Boris’s head popped up. “Colonel? Sir? I can’t see a thing?”

“That’s because it is dark in here Boris.”

“Oh! Are you okay sir?”

‘Yes, but we have had a setback Boris. Tell the men and the reds we are going to plan B. Let the dwarves feel her wrath when she awakes. It is time for us to leave immediately.”

Topic: Getting to know you
Subject: What is all this about my daughter???????????


My daughter is Veronica. She is ten. She doesn't participate on the inn and she doesn't have a username. She often looks over my shoulder when I am on it, but so far has not shown a real interest in the internet. She has an email, but never uses it.

I introduced V to D&D about two years ago along with my god daughter Emilee, but strictly tabletop and very d&d lite. (All the monsters, less rules)

Veronica loves reading and is way above her grade level. She is currently working through my collection of the Sherlock Holmes stories.

Anyone attempting to set her up will meet with a sudden and immediate death. And pain, lots of pain.

Anyone else want to share about their children?

Subject: Dodger and Crew


hey Gang!

Who is all going to the meeting with Dodger about your cargo? Need to know so I can move you along.

So you aren't going in blind. Dodger is a black gentlemen, very tall and resembles Bob Marley. He started out on the streets of Beaumonde as a street courier. He worked his way up in the underworld on a reputation of being reliable. He grew his own courier company, then branches out into other forms of goods transfer. His word is golden. There are very important and extremely dangerous people out there that trust him to move their goods. As such, few dare touch him because the ramifications are deadly. Dodger does not carry a gun or any other type of weapon, claiming it is against his religion but really he doesn't have to. He has two bodyguards with him at all times (Hack and Slash).

Dodger's weakness is the ladies.

So sound off so I can get us moving. I'd like to get you to the comet by the middle of next week.

The dust was making it difficult for Magma to see and the wailing wasn't helpoing his concentration. Against mortal enemies, Magma was skilled at fighting blind, but against these creatures, there was no aid.

He want to cry out to someone, one of the magic users, to generate some wind to help blow this away, but he couldn't risk opening his mouth to speak the words and he hadn't brunk enough ale today to aid him in generating his own wind.

By Odin! I breathe dead people

Magma forced himself to soldier on, breathing though his nose, trusting in the vastly superior dwarven respiratorty system, and fighting onwards.

People advertise or call you up about a job opportunity. They say it is Managerial (or Production oriented) but when you get the interview, suddenly the position is that of a salesperson.

I do not want to do sales. If they told me from the start, then I wouldn't waste their or my time on an interview. What do they think? That they can trick people into becoming sales reps? If it is, that a silly approach!


Grrrrr......
