If a man goes out of the way to put out food and drink, he is probably trying to make an impression. If you turn it down, you sorta insult him so .....

Subject: AHH! Someone moved


As soon as the Cidal cleric moves towards the fire, the silver oval shaped thing spins and turns towards him, moving at speed, or as much speed as its stubby legs can move. But, suddenly, a bright light flashed from the top of the thing and engulfs Dudley in its ray.

*BZZZZZZZZSHHHHH*

The light disappears and Dudley is .....




very clean and dry. His clothes, his hair, even the makeshift club he carries is now spotlessly clean.

The Watermelon of Cleanliness starts to move toward the party and the puddle that is forming underneath them.

Topic: The Island of Putnam the Mad
Subject: here we go


Maithias Crowmarhte washed ashore of the island. The cold wind blew a chill through the Sylvari body and he was battered and bruised from the trip to shore. But he was alive, and for that he was thankful.

He looked around the island and area where he had landed. Other survivors were ashore – one of them appeared to be a naked Khord, Crow didn’t feel so bad as at least he had his armour. Sodden, soaked and cold armour but at least he had that. But the realization dawned upon him that he was without gear or weapons now. His matching swords were at the bottom of the sea with the remains of the ship.

He forced himself up and began to scour the shoreline, hoping against hope that something of his would have made it here. After some time, he spots something – a quiver bobbing in the water. He runs out and gathers it up to find that the gods have been merciful and that it is his bow, quiver and....five arrows. Well, better than no arrows at all, but the bow string is wet, and the arrows’ fletching are soaked. He’d need somewhere to dry them, and with the weather and barrenness of the island, he wasn’t sure about a fire.

He wandered the shore line for a awhile but found nothing of use. Then he wandered over to where the others were gathering. The Grim Khord Priest was there (good, he does have armour), the two Cidals (how did they survive?), a sea man (how did he manage to keep the hat?), and another Syl (the mage if he remembered correctly) were gathering together.

"HO My Friends! How Fare Ye?" Gamand asks.

"Dolphins and devilfish!" Wembly exclaimed, shaking himself much like a wet hound coming in from a thundershower. He looked out over the sea. "Ha! That was some storm, Sea Queen! It will make for an excellent tale around a fire"

“Well,” Alôndas said as he limped closer, “I am glad to see that we at least made it.”
Wembley piped up, "Alan, right? Remember me? The dabbling cid from the Brynnandells? Oh, am I so glad to see that you made it. Now we can finish that story I was telling you about the other day. Remember? I was about to tell about the time I escaped from a orc raid party. Oh, you should have seen it... that pair of brown bears I conjured up was a work of art."

"Anyone else cold?" Wembley interrupted himself, shivering. "I could really use some shelter."

"Odd group...” Mal muttered the very thought that Crow was thinking.

“I’ll scout around.” Crow volunteers. ”I can’t promise anything but who know what I might find. Did anyone find any food or flint for a fire?”

The news that they had some food was good to hear but the lack of fire building was a worry. Crow set out wordlessly to search the island for a dream and a miracle.

And he may have found it. Just as darkness falls, you discover at the center of the island a shallow depression with a stone door. The door is unlocked and when opened reveals a descending stone stairway. At its bottom is another door of an unfamiliar material.

“Well now,” The Syl mage said with a smile, “shall we see what lies beneath? Perhaps we can find out what happened to the other people that appear to have been shipwrecked here before us. One other thing," he added before there was an answer, "who is leader here?"

"I'll lead this party! Oh! Oh! Pick me, Alan! Pick me! I can do it!" The excitable Wembley volunteered happily, drawing a smile from Mal.

“Wait, what? No, my name is Alôndas,” the mage said putting a strange ‘closed’ sounding accent on the ‘o’ which is common on Sylvari from the Northern Kingdom, “and I think it best if someone a little…. taller be leader. They’re better able to see over everyone and see the entire picture. You see?”

Mal leans on the wall before the door and says, "It hardly matters, so long as we all be knowin' we'll need each other to survive... assumin' that is even an option at this point. If'n we keep a warrior at each end o' the group, and ya magical beings in the center, we should be fine." He pauses, looking at the group before him. None were near equipped for an adventure of any kind, himself included.
"I be willin' to take point, if'n you be willin' to guard the rear, Syl" He says to Crow, nodding to the bow. "You bein' the best armed to help any position, 'specially bein' most o' the others are short enough to shoot over."

“Crow.” The ranger says, “Call me Crow and I shall call you Mal, but not Captain. My bow is useless until we can get it dry so you may lead for now. I am used to working on my own so don’t be expecting me to wait for orders though.”

“While I agree that, until we know the situation here, it would be best for us to work together,” he addressed the group, “but order is important and if we get into any situations, it is always good to have someone to make the tough decision.” Alôndas said, “Since you seem to have an understanding of tactics,” he said to Malrinn, “and you appear to like to give orders, perhaps you would to volunteer to lead us.

“Plus, you do seem to be tall enough for the job,” he added with a faint smile as his eyes flickered to Wembley.

“Well what are we waiting for, there is surely food and shelter in there, let’s go” Dudley asked eagerly.

With the swashbuckler in the lead the party descends the stone stairs. Even with the opening above, it is very dark once you reach the bottom. The door is black, with no handle or way to hold. When Mal touches it, he finds that he and the party are suddenly drawn into the blackness and into ....

The room is dark green. On the walls are gold fabric wall hangings and paintings of wilderness landscapes. A watermelon shaped metal object is moving back and forth across the floor in a regular pattern. It has two stubby legs and feet but no head or arms. Against one wall is a simple oak table next to a large corner cabinet of dull metal. On the oak table is what appears to be a wooden cage (for a small animal perhaps?) smashed to pieces. In the other corner is a wooden closet door. A mirror on the opposite wall has a very heavy filigreed frame of unfamiliar metals. Two comfortable sofas and two chairs are arranged in front of a fireplace which glows with a fire and gives off a lovely warmth. Across from the fireplace is what looks like a pitch-black doorway, and to the right a sort of hallway leading to another black opening. In the hallway is also a wooden door. (map to follow in QnA)

My description - You are wet and hungry and a chill wind is blowing that promises to bring the storm back with it.

Ody's description - Dudley awoke to the sun warming the beach that he had been cast upon.

I think that Dudley found the island from the TV series LOST, beacusae he is not in my world.

As well, I have many family commitments that may keep me away for a week or two so please bear with me during those times.

I have no idea what to tell you about time commitment. It could play for awhile or fast as it is an 18 room module with no need to hit each room.

I certainly can bring out more adventures afterwards if so desired. I am not looking for long lengthy posts - no more than you would say at a table top game - unless you want to and can handle the time constraint.

Subject: Badger's Abode


Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, Badger’s Office, 6:00 pm ST

With a possible job in hand, everyone prepared themselves for the meeting. JC readied his weapons and had Grace do a calibration on his arm so he’d have optimal control over it. Angela received instructions from Jon and Grace as to what her role would be at the meeting. Tess prepared the Lucky charms she wanted for such a meeting and although she took her pistol with her, she hoped that there would be no shooting as it is usually bad for business.

(please let me know what you are bringing to meeting)

Persephone, while considered a civilized planet by Alliance standards, was still home to a large slum population. Therefore, one could find both the pinnacle of high society and the depths of the criminal underworld amidst the planet's famously tiered societal structure. Eavesdown Docks was a sprawling slum of shanty houses made of scrap metal, canvas and whatever would stand up long enough to put a nail through it.

It did not take long for Jon, Tess, JC and Angela to find where they were going, as the entrance was well guarded by thugs and goons brazenly armed with machine guns and assault rifles. A large Chinese man greets you and asks to see your ID, then checks a clipboard before showing you the way in without so much as a pat down or gun check. As you move down the tunnel, you pass numerous armed guards along the way as well as build in flash doors that can seal you in faster than you could run.

Located below street-level, Badger’s office is filled with all manner of junk. Fishnet hangs from the ceiling. A pin-up girl adorns one wall, along with signs in Chinese characters. Badger sits in a leather office chair behind a desk made of overturned crates. His desk is cluttered with cheap replicas of old timey objects, such as an apple peeler, two types of scales, an old-fashioned office phone, wire baskets stuffed with papers, and a funny-looking lamp, among other stuff. Sacks of grain are underfoot. An ornate curtain doubling as a door lends an air of sophistication to the place—at least to Badger’s way of thinking. There are armed guards in every corner, as well as two other well dressed men who stand at the side. farthest from the entrance. There is a table set in the centre of the room with sandwiches (smells like tunafish), cookies and a couple of pitchers of a orange coloured liquid.

A ma stands leaning on the desk. He is not a tall man, but he wears a tweed suit and wears a bowler style hat and appears to be completely unarmed. His smile is inviting but his eyes are sly. He looks you all over quickly, assessing you based on your body language, dress and choice of weapons. He goes over Angela in a second, while looking over Tess and Jon longer, but he spends a long moment on JC, as if he is trying to remember something.

“Hello,” He speaks in a Dyton accent (Cockney), “Which one of you is Jonathan Brown?”

(Although Badger speaks in an accent, I am not going to write in one because I find it distracting and I’m lazy that way. I will assume that you will make some form of introductions)

Badger smiles but makes no attempt to shake hands. He gestures to the table before you, “Since this is our first face to face, I thought we’d start out on the right foot. Compliements of me – I’m Badger. Now I hears that you have a fast ship and that you are reliable. That be two things I have a real use for right now.”

Persephone, Eavesdown Docks, On Board Destiny, 6:00 pm ST

Grace had a feeling that this job would be a go, and since it involved passengers, she decided to check all the passenger rooms – just to make sure there were no surprises. Not that there were any reasons to expect surprises, but to Grace’s way of thinking, that was the best time to check for them. Once she felt assured that everything was on order, she also checked the now spare rooms on the main floor. Angela had refused a cabin, and moved herself into the empty storage closet – no amount of convincing would change her mind and Grace didn’t see the point in spending a lot of energy trying. It made Angela feel better to be in closed in spaces – she came to notice that. She had her own quirks that she expected people to respect so she respected others. With passengers coming aboard soon, she would probably be spending a lot of time in her own room or the engine room.

Stephanie was working away in the infirmary, keeping herself busy. The doctor worried a lot when Jon was off on a job or getting a job. In order to stop herself from fretting, she kept herself busy. Part of her yearned for the Villa that her and Jon shared but she knew that life was not for him.

Subject: this and that


Ody - I made that deduction from your previous comment that they were o level priest spells. I do not use them nor do I use cantrips.

Hammer - a standard quarterstaff ranges between 6 to 9 feet in length depending on culture, the source of wood and how it is "quartered". That being said, I would think that a Khord would want a staff around 5 feet in length, steel shod on both ends and made from the hardest wood possible.

Everyone - Do you want the characters posted? I don;t tend to for D&D but sometimes people want to be able to check online.

I am away from home this weekend taking my daughter to a university tour and infromation session. I will seek to clarify and sum up positions either Sunday or Monday.

The way I see it, Wyatt, Wolf and Tess took the shuttle to help with the turbine once the Captain was finished his discussion with Matherson.

Asher and Jessie are taking pictures. Ody put down he was planting the bombs but the young men need time to make them so that was a bit premature.

Someone dropped off the soup to the passengers and they are heading to caves.

Willow and Ma discovered the sabatoge to your engines as the above is happening.

Amber and Havelock are in the infirmary

Cameron gathered his clothing and is somewhere on the ship.
