As I have begun the CWWLLO campaign now, so Bob will become the background character I intended him to be. Once a week tops.

This has nothing to do with how long it takes to Un-Bob myself after I post. Nor the looks I get as a 40 year old man telling people "Chill Dude. It be Cool."

The list of characters is up on the first post of CWWLLO now. I love how fast everyone has posted.

I will do up a brief history then so you can at least understand where you are at.

I will slip in a breakdown of characters at the start of the campaign. Name, Race, Class, aparent insanity, player's name.

Need to touch up all the characters a bit but that will come over the next week. Old characters need to go up a level, New ones need history and insanities tweaked. I just wanted to allow everyione a chance to post. Thanks for the immediate response by the way.

Would a brief history of my world and current events help? Tell me if you are lost in the history.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off
Subject: And we are off

Dwan Granitecrusher, Head of the Iron League, and leader of the city-state of Freegate looked over the list of names before him again. The group that went into the valley had a few members leave them, as was the norm with adventurers and sellswords. He had hoped to patch up the holes with a few good men he had met and talked with in the last few days. Hopefully he had made good decisions but time would tell. Unfortunately, time was not a commodity he had in great excess.

He stood up and left the list behind, leaving his office and heading down the hall to the central dining area. His assistant Terrin, soon feel in step behind him. “Terrin! Get me the maps of the area in question,” He said, pausing hold the handle to the doorway, “and have the gentlemen meet me here in the dining hall.” He opened the door to see that the group was already in the room and the maps were spread out on his desk.

Dwan looked around the silent room. The knight Arien Thedell stood ready by the desk, in bright armour. In the shadows behind him was the young lad Dapple, always hiding from the light that one. The Ranger Char, with his odd shaped swords lounged in an easy chair positioned with its back to the wall. The northern nodded a silent greeting to Dwan, but his desire to be outside of the city shone in every sinew of his body. Dwan’s own cousin Kilgrim was also there and came immediately to clamp arms with Dwan. These were all that was left of the Antonio’s saviors.

Near the buffet was a huge muscle bound man in patchwork armour. His long blond hair and icy blue eyes showed him to be one of Sueli – the so called barbarian clans of the north. An ex-gladiator, taken as a slave and trained to fight for sport – Talas had no love for the empire or its people. Further along was a gangly youth with unkempt long black hair and arcane tattoos all over his body. If not for a demonstration of his powere, Dwan would have thought that Jal was a thief by nature. By the lad had arcane powers, that was for sure. The other spellcaster was the complete opposite – lean, physically fit with a body that many fighters would envy. Most wizards don’t carry bastard swords either – but Adrian was ex-red corp of the empire. Many of the reds were forced into service, more slave than conscript.

Dwan cleared his throat, “Come, Sit, and we shall discuss the situation you have been called here for first, then eat afterwards while I answer any questions you may have." Dwan motions you who are standing to the chairs around and takes a single high back chair to sits down. After you have all sat down, Terrin, the young dwarven assistant stands behind his leader and remains there. Dwan says to you "You know who I am and I have spoken to each of you individually, but since you will probably be working together for the next while, why don’t each of you introduce yourself and tell a bit about you. After that I will explain why you are here and what the problem is, fair?"

OOC: The game is open for posts now...

Topic: Star Trek: Discovery
Subject: What about Bob?

Stardate: 2366.10.21
USS Discovery, ten forward – 2110

Bob entered the area of the ship called ten- forward. This was usually a happening place, low keyed but still with the groove. Tonight, that wasn’t it. A good portion of ten forward was actually fairly empty, however there was a section roped off to the side – a senior officer shindig! He smiled as he saw the Jackdude with the Sci-tie Hemlos. Chief triggerpuller could use some R&R. Bob made a mental note that he needed to have a dude to dude with the Commanderdude.

Bob walked over to the bar. Of course, with the “do” happening, Jacandra wasn’t at the bar. One of the other bartenders was holding the shop, a black skinned human with a handle bar moustache. Lt. N’Doug nodded at him, “Hey Issacdude! You got the COMM tonight.” He said holding his fist towards the man.

Issac touched his fist to Bob’s “What it is Bob!” he said, a bit awkwardly but Bob could appreciate the effort, “ Yes a dinner party for the new officers. What can I get you?”

“Give me a Bambozzle, dude.”

“You got it.” Issac did his magic behind the bar, accessing the computer to direct the replicators was something anyone could do, but Issac mixed drinks the old way, pouring and measuring liquids together and serving with a flourish a tall red coloured drink with ice and lots of fruit pieces within, “One Issac special Bambozzle.”

“Whoa! Awesome Dude.” He sipped it gently, ‘Dude, no one does it better!”

Issac smiled that big smile of his, “Thanks Lieutenant. Cheers.”

Bob took his drink and moved over to an empty table. Before long, another person entered the bar. A Sci-tie by the uniform, Bob was sure that he was one of the crewmembers that had been on that Gavin mission. The science officer ordered a tasty purple drink and made his way to Bob’s table across the room.

"Lieutenant... Bob, isn't it?"

“First try, on the fly, nothing on the side. Please to make yours. We rubbed noodles on the Gavin III headache. You got mine, but you have me in the dust dude.”

"Call me Caleb."

“Risan dude?”

“Yeah. How did you …”

“It’s the strut, dude. You got the strut.”

Caleb nodded and laughed, he was regarded the gathering of senior staff. "So, the brass are up to something tonight, eh? Didn't you get a new boss out of the Valmont meeting?"

”Absolutmondo dude. She’s over there now but I’ll grease her palms soon enough. Pretty hot and tasty by the flyby, and I won’t be straining the neck. Course, Sango was the same except you never knew where to look cause she probably expected you to look, yet it isn’t polite to look, but if you looked, you couldn’t stop looking so you learned to look at anything else – which looked silly.

Caleb nodded, trying to figure out what exactly it was that N'doog had said. The young officer found his gaze drifting back to the staff dinner, despite his intentions to put it elsewhere.

"I want to be there someday..." he murmured, then looked up, a little ashamed at having stated his thoughts out loud. For some reason, though, the catullan put him at ease, so he continued. "Yeah. I feel it every time I step on the bridge. One day, I want to be in that circle."

”Hey bro! It’s good to know where’s your go, dig? That’s good. Many people go with the flow but don’t row. You’ll be there dude. Me, not my scene but I respect the commanderdudes. It ain’t easy doing the whole Bee act. But someone has to do the work.”

Caleb shook his head and grinned. "Tell you what - let me buy you a drink, Bob." He paused for moment. "Say, are you a gambling man? I hear that Lieutenant Ames in ops is scaring up a poker game later on..."

Bob smiled, “Righteous dude. I’m not usually into the mentally challenged taxation, but I could get into some festiveness. I’m doing the Bambozzle, and it is getting to the done. Say, you ever try skateboarding?"

From out of this darkness and into the day,
From these rivers of headlights, these rivers of rain,
From the anger that lives on the streets with these names,

Ive seen desperation explode into flames,
And I dont want to see it again. . .

Just need some fine tuning to get started. Hopefully by end of day or Tomorrow.

Note for new Players (Tann, Eol and Bob)
Dapple, although female and half-elven goes to great length to hide both features. To your eyes, until you are told otherwise, Dapple is a human boy - hard to determine what age, but not quite a man. I trust you can all manage to play this secret well.

Note to previous players (Olan, Raven, Bromern and Vanadia)
Your players know Dapple's secret by now but understand her wishes to hide it. Since you are all honourable good characters, I am assuming this is no problem.

Subject: Silver Screen Moment I - Fate plays a hand

Alloryn Jessamin Thedell didn’t have a problem with lying to people. In fact, she was schooled quite adequately by her mother in the arts of fabrication and persuasion – as all good Cerjorn women should be, she would add. But there was something about lying to her brother that always felt wrong to her. Not that he was hard to fool, quite the contrary really; Arien would proclaim the sky was green if Alloryn told him so. Yet, any time she was forced to be less than honest with him, she felt a tightness in her stomach, a guilty pain deep inside, as if she had beaten a puppy or taken candy from a school child.

There was nothing to be done about it this time though. Guileless as Arien was, he never have let her taken this journey. Oh yes, Brother? I am off to traipse through the forest in search of this old fort and a man who has a large scaly green left, because I keep seeing them in my dreams. Be a dear and don’t wait up? No that wouldn’t have flown over well. Arien would be beside her now waving that sword of his in the air and probably setting have the forest on fire. Not the approach that was needed here.

The Mage pauses near some trees. She had put an invisibility spell upon herself before and had to remind herself that although unseen, she could still be heard if she became out of breath, and some animals would smell her sweat as well. Take your time Alloryn! You know he is there. No doubt it was not wise for her to be here, alone and seeking someone she knew to be dangerous, but she couldn’t shake to feeling, the urge to come here. It drove though her like a spike being driven into her temples. Even taking the road away didn’t help, within days the urge became overwhelming and she abandoned the merchants she swore to protect to come south again. They had many guards, I am sure they won’t mind one less and frankly Arkin was more interested in my physique than my magic.


Alloryn froze and forced herself to breath regularly. Someone had stepped on a branch near her. She was sure of it. Silently, she drew black swan from her pinned up hair, the thin long dagger gave her comfort in the stillness. She waited but nothing seemed to come from the trees or bushes. An eternity passed in the minute she awaited there, until the bushed moved near her. The soldiers emerged from the trees to the forest, both moving close to the ground, scanning it with intense focus. Their uniforms gave them away as much as their language – Special Forces imperial soldier – Greens.

“Deke, she passed through here recently. We are close.”

The other came right close to Alloryn, not realizing she was there. He examined the ground at her feet as she gave a silent prayer to Wee Jas to save her. “Damn! They stop right here.” He stood up and looked around staring through Alloryn, “Think she got wind of us?”

“Maybe, Deke. I stumbled back there. Might have heard.”

“This way then,” Deke pointed with his arm extended. Alloryn moved herself back as much as she could and thanked all the gods she wasn’t voluptuously endowed. The man’s finger was dangerous close to her. They have been tracking me? How?

“Hold on a second.” Deke said looking down at Alloryn’s feet. “Just hold s …”

Alloryn knew she had been found out. The dirt around her shoes had shifted as she avoided the intended grope. With a strength of will beyond what she though she could muster, she drove the Black Swan upwards and into Deke’s neck He staggered back as her spell dropped, causing her to appear in front of him as he fell to the ground.

“Deke!” the other man shouted. Alloryn pushed the soon to be dead man into the other man. He grabbed her by the hand but the blood on it caused her to slide out of the grip. Black Swan was knocked from her grip and into the bushes.

No time to retrieve the family Heirloom, She ran as fast as he could, in the only direct she had open - south. She wished that she hadn’t lied to Arien and would have done anything right now for him to appear. She started to gather the mystical energy of mana to her. Although running, there were some good spells she could use that required minimum incantation. She had always been a fast caster so they didn’t have her yet.

A sharp pain in her shoulder, caused her to reach up and grab it. A small crossbow bolt had grazed her across the flesh and caught in her sleeve. not a serious wound. I’m fine The was a sharp turn ahead, she ducked behind it and chanted as fast as she could. Just as the soldier came around the corner, she fired off a series of brilliant white missiles from her fingertips. They caught him hard in the chest, but he didn’t stop. He was upon her in an instant, grabbing at her hands. Another soldier arrived and grabbed her legs, then more were all around. She was tied and gagged without mercy. The soldier she had elude before slapped her hard, a ring on his finger drawing blood across her face. The other soldiers stepped in his way to prevent further harm.

“The Bitch killed Deke!”

A soldier with command insignas in his sleeve stepped forward. “How did Deke let this slip of a girl get close enough to him?”

“Ummmm. She was invisible at the time.”

“No excuse! Pick her up gently and bring her to the outpost. I’m sure this is the one Dalmer has been waiting for, and I, for one, do not want to disappoint the captain!’ He said with a wither gaze at the soldier. “Order were unharmed, Seiner! You’ll face the captain for this. Mark my words.”

I think I mixed up my timeline with Bob. I had him talking to Avanti then going to the bridge, but thatwould put him on the bridge when Avanti took the COMM for the last time. Not a big deal and hardly worth revisiting but as I read over posts today I realized it was off.

I was planning on Bob hitting ten-forward in the evening (since he isn't invite to senior officer dinners yet). If anyone is going to be there at that time let me know and I'll try to write you into Bob's bar cruising and moving.

Subject: On the bridge with Bob

Stardate: 2366.10.21
USS Discovery, Bridge, 12:00 noon

Lt. N’doog hummed a bit to himself as he waited for the turbolift to reach its destination. The loss of Avanti was a definite bummer, but he was always keen to meet new people. He wondered what Commander Waldgrave would be like. Hope she’s cool. Wonder if she’s a babe?

The doors open and Bob crossed the floor of the Bridge to reach the engineer station. He greeted the people he knew as he passed, “Troydude! Looking good! Hey Shelly! I got a slice of a holo we need to board!” He smiled and passed the other crewmembers until he reached Z’var. “Z’var, I am here the relieve your feeties from standing duty.”

The Female Vulcan arched an eyebrow at the Catullan. “You are early, Lieutenant. My shift is not scheduled to end for another 26 minutes and 34 seconds.”

“Yeah, well I had to shive some cranial attention to Avanti, not too mention the old bye dude, and didn’t feel like taking the long way. Besides, this way you have time to do your chop chopie workout thingie.” Bob said waving his hands around in a mock karate poise.

Z’var nodded briefly, “That is very considerate of you Lieutenant.”

“Not a problem dude.”

"Perhaps you would like to learn some of the basics of martial arts?”

“No can do dude. I’m not into violence, cathartic or otherwise.”

“Very Well then. The station is yours. All systems are running within parameters.”

A-ok. Dude.” Bob called out as Z’var headed off to the turbo lift.

Bob linked his fingers together and stretched. “Okay Shelia. It’s me. How you doing today?”

=/= Welcome Lt. N’doog.=/= the computer intoned.

Bob’s hands stroked the console and then his actions seemed to become a blur. As always, he began to talk softly as he worked. ”Shelia my dear, Can I get some onesies and twosies please. Twosie the essential system and onesie the backups.”

=/= Running diagnostics=/=

“Who are you talking to?” The ensign beside him asked, while watching Bob’s hands with amazement.

“I’m talking to you dude. I’m Lt. Bob N’doog. Nice to make yours. Before I was chatting to Shelia. That’s my pet for the Discovery Computer. Only me though, I did that once and the captain got all whoa and I was like hey and he was like official this and that.”

The Ensign shook his head, “What did you say?”

“Don’t let it shake your noodle, bro. I talk to myself when I work. Just ignore me unless I’m facing you. Dig?”


Bob laughed, “It’s cool dude. It’s cool. Shelia? How's about we gleam the cube on that hot modular aft thruster?”

=/=Reducing stress to aft thruster. compensating with other thrust units =/=

Shelia gets me.
