Topic: Happy GM's Day
Subject: Happy GM's Day

Today is DM/GM's day. Go out and hug a Dungeonmaster today because without them, you'd be playing with yourself.

On this occasion I have decide to share with you a slew of game ideas I have always wanted to play but not had the chance to yet. Please feel free to add your own list or comment on mine.

LXG 1930’s : A game of “Characters” as per the League of Extra-Ordinary Gentlemen comics. In the days before WWII, a lady by the name of Shirley Adler pulls together a group of extraordinary individuals to deal with a mad man bent on world domination.

Star Trek : Dawnstar: After the Dominion War is over and after the Borg threat is eliminated, Starfleet turns to exploration again and starts production on the new Dawnstar class ships. In the new era, captains and command crew do not go on away missions. There is a specialized team with advanced training that beams down first. You are members of Team Alpha and the future awaits if you survive that long.

X-Files: Four members of the FBI who were once lauded as the cream of their crop have met with disaster in the field and been demoted to the sub-basement of the Hoover building and given all the wacko cases commonly called the x-files.

Weird War II : After the events of Castle Rautenberg, the allies come to realize they need a team of men to go in and deal with the rise of occult and supernatural events that are occurring due to nazi research. You are that team, dealing with the monsters under the bed of freedom.

Espers : People with psychic abilities exist and they are exploited, used and captured by gov’t agencies, industrial espionage and criminal elements around the world. One person decides to do something about this by gathering a team of Espers together to fight back against the evil manipulation of their people.

Tanks for the Fantasy You are the crew of a Sherman tank in the WWII Europe theatre when a storm comes out of nowhere and cuts you off from the convoy. When it ends, you are in a green grassland and there are people running around on horses and swords and there seems to be magic at work. Seems the locals need a little help fighting a .... did you say dragon?

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: Attack!!!!

Jarenion cast a spell of Invisibility on Arien and then Kadrin. Although neither warrior was one to use such a spell to their advantage in a fair fight, when one was faced with an ambush, you took whatever advantage you were given.

Maximus moved ahead of the party in order to work his skills at hiding within shadows and moving silently. Lun casts a spell of Protection from Evil 10’ radius to help protect the party further. Odyson prepared a Flame strike while Jarenion moved to a chain lightning spell. Sparrow and Finarsil had their bows at ready with arrows notched to react to whatever danger presented itself.

Once inside the cave and moving past the statues, the darkness feels oppressive and you can not help but feel like you are being watched. The Shielding of the Protection spell around Lun feels like an eggshell being press upon by a massive weight all around. Every step the priestess takes while the spell is in place seems to become harder and harder – like there is too much evil pushing against the shielding of her magic.

Once within the large cavern, Maximus sees a dozen four armed wererats with swords and axes at ready to attack. He clings to the shadows to move behind them but one of them starts to sniff the air and turn its head towards the large thief.

Sparrow opens fire with her bow and the rat that noticed Maximus takes a shaft hard to the chest, flying back a few feet to a spot suitable for dying. He knocks over the comrade behind him in the process and Sparrow ends that one’s life with a barrage of arrows. Finarsil also attacks as well taking down one of the wererats with three arrows and wounding another. The creatures charge forward in rage that their ambush has been now been ambushed but they run into the hidden Knight and Dwarf. AS well “armed” as these monsters may be, they are no match for the seasoned warriors who slay two each before they become visible again and another each after that. (I gave free attack for surprise). Maximus moves swiftly to attack a rat from behind, slaying it quickly and then striking with his vorpal blade on another to end its life.

Odyson calls upon the might of his god and unleashed a Flame strike upon the dark cloud that shrouds the hill within the cavern. As he does, Jarenion sends forth a lightning bolt of great power into the same cloud. The flame and electrical energy illuminate the darkness as it begins to dissipate. Two wererats die instantly in the flame, one of which seems to be the one that cast the darkness spell. The lightning bounces from rat to rat, killing 7 of them before wounding 5 more to various degrees. But with the darkness gone, you can see what waits upon the hilltop – a whole lot of Wererat warriors. There is chaos among them as the spells devastate some of their members but the rest launch their javelins into the air, causes a wave of missile weapons hurling down towards the party.

Arien moves to protect as many of the party he can with shield and armour interposed against the attack. Javelin shatter against his shield, are cut in twain by his sword and bounce off his green armour and the Knight remains unscathed. Likewise, Kadrin’s armour stands well against the javelins and the dwarf is unharmed. Maximus dodges and rolls to avoid the missiles taking a scratch across the face only. Sparrow, Jarenion and Finarsil remain out of range of the attack. Lun takes a cut as a javelin passes close to her arm and Odyson manages to avoid being hit as well. The remaining wererats on the cavern floor are killed but the onslaught of their comrades.

With javelins used, the multitudes of wererats come running down the hillside with spears in their hands.

Maximus – light wounds
Lun- Light wounds

Note you are facing a charging wave of 50-60 Mutant Wererats.

I will assume the role of Wembley as Aryn is out for awhile. So I am waiting on Ody to tell me which end he is pointing where when he pushes the button (cause we know Dudley has to push the button). I am also waiting on Kyle for Mal but he is without a weapon to effect the Iron men.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: money money money

To answer Albert's question on money:

Credits are a paper (rolled polymer actually) based system and exchangeable anywhere. If you are inclined, you can also have your money in a bank and use a card, a chip in your multiband or link it to your biometrics. The caution of credits is that every single bill print has a microfibre tracker on it (so they say) and every time to go through a scanner, it is tagged so technically they can track you with your money (not that the alliance would do that. Think of all the manpower involved, it would be absurd right?). Of course money linked to a chip or card is very very very traceable.

The alternate is Platinum pieces which people prefer out in the Rim. Platinum can not be traced, is portable and in a bad situation can be used as a weapon in an old sock or sack.

Some planets produce their own paper money but it is not good outside that planet and only locals use it. If you are Planet hopping, the last thing you want to do is shift through your cash and try to figure out what works where. It is important to state you want payment in a specific form if you are dealing with local people.

So it makes sense that JC would have some paper money. If it is being traced, it is better to ping the system few times than not at all - makes you look legit.

Topic: The Gobber King
Subject: metal men

The gas quickly dissipates quickly. With renewed confidence, Crow and Gamard attack the Iron Men. The automatons are not designed to defend themselves so Crow is able to damage one of them so much that it stops moving. The one attacking Gamard is bearing a couple of deep dents.

Alondas attempts to trip up a Metal man with his staff but the creatures are too well grounded to be upset by such a trick.

Mal boldly states his refusal to die without the winds and or roar of the sea to take his spirit. Such declarations have no visible effects of the Iron Men but they are focused upon those who have taken the weapons from the case.

The short staff that Dudley grabs is of a perfect height for a Cidal or a Khord and is framed with a bluish-white metallic cap on one end and a brownish red cap on the other. The heft is light and it is easy to handle. There is a black button on the centre of the staff, exactly half way between the two ends. There is no sign as to which end you point towards your target when the button is pressed and wishing for a wind creature has no effect.

When Wembley grabs the orb, something odd happens. The silver metal becomes like a liquid in his hand, twisting and curves around. It is warm to the touch and as it shifts it sudden solidifies into the shape of a dagger. Then the metal changes to liquid again and forms the shape of a sling-staff, just the right size for Wembley.

The Men of Iron attacks hit Gamard against a string blow to the chest that would have floored a normal man but the hearty Khord roll back to his feet and continues with the attacks. Wembley is struck hard as well as he attempts to gain some control over the liquid metal in his hands. The third one strikes out at Dudley but the fast moving cleric is lucky enough to avoid a solid blow.

Crow – Light wounds
Gamard – Serious wounds
Dudley – Light wounds
Alondas –Light wounds
Wembley – Serious wounds
Mal – Serious Wounds

One Iron Man is down, One is wounded. Two are still fine

In case people have forgot

Light = 25% of HP lost
Serious = 26-50% of HP lost
Critical = 51-75% of HP lost
Death Door = 76% or more of HP lost

I does seem like you have to threaten to shut the game down, kidnap family members, threaten torture, capture their hometowns and set fire to the rain before players will post to the games.

Posted on 2015-02-18 at 09:59:39.

Subject: so then

As I see this from what I read here:

You are moving into the cave in order to attack the wererats and take the cavern.

Jar - cast Invis on Ari and Kad, moves to Chain Lighting for rats
Ody - Flame strike on Hill, missile weapons after
Ari - Charge while invis
Kad - Charge while Invis
Max - Hide in Shadows, backstab if possible or missile
Lun - Cast Protect from evil 10
Spa - Bow and Arrows
Fin - Bow and Arrows

Subject: Lack of a tactician

You are facing a large number of opponents. The most basic of plans here would be charge in, missile weapon user flank out, spell users go for mass effect and damage and let the armoured sword and axe users go up the centre. Using Invisibility could get you a round of attacks for free but that would be about it.

If this was my usual group, Gallirian would charge in loudly drawing all attention. Rune would start with Lightning and then Ice Storm, and Vanadia would sneak into the cavern and use the darkness to her advantage.

Posted on 2015-02-14 at 13:11:41.

Clearer direction would help me a great deal. Otherwise i have to assume.

So shall I assume everyone is moving into the cave, weapons draw, spells ready and ready for action?

Today is Olan's Birthday. Our Beloved Webmaster is celebrating the day of his birth and we should too.

Many happy returns old friend. I speak for all when i say we love you and appreciate the work you put into the inn so we have a place to hang out.

But don;t let me speak for you!!!! Speak up people! Wish Olan a Happy one and remind him why he is our number one Webmaster.

Subject: move ahead.

You really don't know until you try to climb but based on Maximus's description, you think the packed earth would require either claws or some skill to ascend. How long? A few rounds unless someone was lobbing javelins at you, in which case it may be a bit slower.

Fireballs brought the roof down on you before - what are the odds it would happen again?

Waiting on Olan. Aryn, and Eol to post. Unless they were planning to stand around and do nothing this round.

ss I said before, Mmv is busy with school and asked me to cover her actions which were say hi to friendly crew outside, avoid looking at hairy guy and then head to the spaceport tower.

Not sure how your actions would be different. You approached, said hi and introduced yourself. Jade came up behind you and did the same. She is very quiet in her movements.
