Subject: hanging bodies

The hanging elven hunters are definitely dressed and armoured like the elven hunters that went with Galen. However they are about 70 feet upwards above the bridge and chasm so even with infravison - you really can't see much detail. If you want to have a closer look you need to fly or levitate or toss the Dwarf.

Subject: Ending part II

Once the Casket was secure, Vasquez and Hudson disappeared and then came back with a foot locker marked ‘Secured Evidence' between them. They brought it to Asher and Wolf, Hudson beaming a mischievous grin. "We gotcha a present. We figured that no one would notice if it went missing."

Vasques opened the locker up to show you inside are the weapons that were confiscated from you during the arrest. They were stripped down and roughly tossed inside but all the guns that Asher and Wolf were using during the battle were there. "We tried to get you the Gauss but the family insisted they were heirloom or something. But I figure better than having to restock again."

Sanders walked by and looked at what you were doing and quickly turned around, "I did not see anything people. Let's keep it that way."

(This brings you back to where you were on guns before the battle. Your ammo is somewhat depleted and you are down a lot of grenades but you won't be able to restock on a core planet)

Somewhere in the Verse

Black Bart sat in a chair with his hands cuffed behind his back and a black bag over his head - but he wasn't worried. With all the contacts he had and the knowledge he possessed, the military was going to treat him real right. Of course they had to pretend to take him as a prisoner, but soon he would be up to his hips in credits and XXX so they could use his knowledge. Once he gave them some tidbits, he'd leverage some payback against the crew of that ship that interfered with his business. Oh yeah. They were dead and if they had family they were dead and if they had pets they were dead too.

Suddenly, the bag was taken off his head and he blinked at the sudden onrush of light. He was in storage room of some sort and there was a oriental man standing over him. "Where the hell am I?' He looked around to see a table with a number of implements on it and a gas fed brazier alit with blue flames.

"The question is not so much where you are Good sir but what you are, and what you are is a man with very little options."

"Really?" Bart laughed, "If you want what I know, then you better give me options."

"Oh, I do not want to know anything about you/" the man said and he went over to the table and picked up a iron pole about 3 feet long up and showed the end to Bart, "Do you know this emblem?"

"No. Should I?"

"It is the family crest of the Borgia-Chan. You may have heard of them." He said and put the crest end of the rod into the brazier of fire.

"Yay. Some rich family. Why do I care?" Bart answered nervously watching the fire.

"Yes. Well they had two sons that were killed by a man under your command on LV-426."

Bart started to worry, "Yeah.Okay. So why aren't you talking to that guy?"

"Unfortunately, he was slain in battle. However, it is important to note that he was acting on your orders. The Borgia-Chans wish to make sure that everyone knows what happens when you hurt a member of their family."

"But I..."

"Please. Do not plead. It makes me lose my concentration." The man said firmly as he picked up the handle of the iron rod and placed the hot end on Bart's chest. The mercenary screamed in pain for the full minute that the hot metal was on the skin. "There now, screaming I can handle. Feel free to scream as much as you want. I have been asked to make sure you live for three days before you can be killed outright, and I never break a promise."


Mark brought his ship into a landing outside the atmo processor on LV-426 that was sending the signal. After the dustup on this rock between the Feds and them criminals, Mark wasn't surprised the company wanted him to check it out but when the maintenance alarms went off days after everyone cleared out, they asked Mark to check it out.

He opened the door to the AP and turned on his flashlight. To his surprise, there was a young lady lying on the floor near the doorway. He rushed over to her and felt her arm for a pulse. Yep, she was alive by barely. How did she get here? Did they miss a passenger? Mark wasn't sure how that was possible but he picked her up and carried her to his ship. Since he was often on his own, Mark had installed an auto-doc in his medbay. He put her on the infirmary bed and activated the scan function.

She was suffering mostly from borderline mal-nutrition. Poor girl must have been out her on her own for awhile. She also had a genetic defect as well - no larynx. The girl was mute. Would explain how she got missed, she couldn't call for help.

Mark grabbed some food packs form his stores and instructed the auto-doc to give her a mild stimulant. Her eyes fluttered open and he smiled at her and said, "Hey there. My name is Mark. I found you here. You need to eat so I brought you some food."

The girl smiled back and accepted the food quickly. She pointed to her throat and shook her head. "Yeah, I got that from the auto-doc. You can't talk. I will get you some paper to write on." He turned around and started to look around for paper and pen. He finally found them and handed them to her. "So why don't start with your name?"

She took the paper and pen and smiled. Then she drove the tip of the pen into Marks neck as hard as she could. He was caught completely by surprise and died quickly as the pen cut through his jugular.

Miko wiped the blood off her hands with the bottom of the dead man's shirt. She now had food and a ship. Time to start making a plan.

Topic: Continuing Where We Last Left Off Again
Subject: Just a short fill in.

You approach the torchbearer cautiously, expecting danger but as you approach the man with the torch, you realize you are not facing a man at all. The eyes that face you are black and glossy, like glass and the skin is leathery and sworn together in places. This is the skin of a man formed over a body of sawdust and wood - like a taxidermist does with an animal. His clothing is that of a average peasant with homespun tunic and wool leggings. The mannequin with a human's skin just stares blankly towards the back of the cavern and the torch burns in his hand without consuming fuel.

Subject: okay

I am very glad to hear that enjoyed CWWLLO that much and I am honoured you consider it as a cherished memory. Unfortunately, time marches on and I had to let CWWLLO end because I lost too many players and I had too little time. Having an autistic son takes a lot out of my personal time so the fact is I shouldn't really be involved in 4 games but I do so because I love the inn and the game.

This adventure takes place 12ish years after the second CWWLLO adventure where the Tower fell, the Green Goddess possessed Arien's sister and Arien killed the Commander of the Green Imperial forces by running his flaming sword though his eye socket. S0 this would make Max 44ish years old. In the 12 years you became a thief; adventured elsewhere in the world with other people and five years ago all of this party ran through "White Plume Mountain" and killed an undead dragon. I have not penalized anyone in the party for age because frankly, I didn't want to.

So if you want to tweak your background to fit that, so be it. No problem. But I want to move forward. I do not want to put a lot of time or effort into backgrounds because this is just a funny one shot adventure. I mean - I am sending you through Tomb of Horror which I changed because I thought it was too wimpy in the original form. Thank about that for a second. There are ToH support groups out there.

Subject: Almost the end

Ody reminded me that I left some questions unanswered so I will have to do another post before you leave.

Meanwhile, you have 11,000 credits now which is no small amount of change. Now if I remember correctly, Wyatt and Willow have two shares each and everyone else has 1 so if you include John and Tess that is a 9 way break (1222 each) but I leave it to the captain to divide out.

Nice thing about the ship is that you are now fully caught up on maintenance and won't have to look at paying for more for about 6 months.

If you wish to buy stuff before you leave, that is fine but remember you are on a core planet so you can not get anything illegal and you are being watched everywhere. If you'd like to upgrade the ship or anything on it (Med bay, Galley, Sonic shower etc) then I will assume you arranged it before the adventure begins.

Subject: correction of the correction

Actually Albert, it has been awhile since you would have decided to switch classes (8-10 years at least) and you adventured with everyone in this party five years ago to recover the three evil artifact and fight the undead dragon. I established that before the game started. So everyone would know by now that you are the thief of the party,

This is why I avoid the party leader debate. People wait around for the leader to post and the game slows down. You all know your characters, don't wait on someone else to lead.

Subject: the end

So in the days waiting for the ship to be repaired, Tess leaves you to go back to her Destiny and the Captain picks a young lady named Jade Storm to be the new pilot. She is a cheerful sort, with a winning smile and a willingness to do work.

Baron Winter invites Wolf, Asher and Jade to be part of the repairs to the ship. He is doing more than just replacing parts, he is putting in a whole new engine system - the one that is going into the new series 4 Firefly. A bit smaller, with more power, Wolf, Asher and Jade are able to learn about the engines and the new controls. The baron replaced the 2 Blue Sun 6V4-178-B31 Trace Compression Block with 36 RCS thrusters along with the Standard radion/accelerator core Drive (4 Cruise and 4 hard Burn) with 4 Blue Sun EVT29-4000-A90 pulse-feedback generators with 48 RCS thrusters and an Enhanced graviton accelerator core Drive (5 cruise and 7 hard Burn). He also installed more backup systems at critical sections. Two brand new shuttles have been added as well. Best of all, a new fuel system that will give you 800 hours of flight on the 60 ton fuel tank. (Game terms Willpower is now d4, Asset: Fuel Efficient)

The days pass in the luxury of the hotel and the social scene but the "celebration" is slowly ending and the people you rescued have moved back into their own routines. Once you are told that Rocinante is ready, you are eager to get out of this high class world and back to your world. Not that some of you didn't keep a few towels and bathrobe though, they were free right?

You move back into the ship and into your rooms. Jade takes the bunk that Tess had vacated. You take Rocinante out for a quick shake down flight. Jade handles the ship like a pro and soon come the time that you move to hard burn. Some of you wondering if the quirk of the ship will be gone now due to the new engines. But sure as the sun rising, as you push the engines, the sound of a lone horse galloping at full speed comes back and moves from stern to bow.

But time for more somber issues. Wyatt receives a communication from Sanders that the body of Havelock awaits at the Lu'Weng spaceport and you are confirmed to land. Time to take the old captain back to Hera.

You land and drop the cargo bay. You are a bit surprised to see Sanders, Hicks, Hudson and Vasques are there in full dress uniforms to carry to the casket onto your ship. As well, there is a young lady, small and dressed in black with a veil across her face standing by the casket. She has a wooden box under her arm and a rolled piece of cloth.

The Marshalls help you place the casket in the cargo bay and secure it firmly. Sanders shakes Wyatt hand and hands over a keycard, "This is the authorization you need to have Captain Havelock buried with his men. you will need to go to Serenity View and see a man named Virgil Morningstar. He ain't the mayor and there is no sheriff but he owns most of the town so he is the closest thing to a mayor they got. I have sent him a wave to let him know you are coming."

(assuming some response, maybe a question or two)

The lady in black approaches Wyatt as he finishes with Sanders. "Excuse me sir, Are you Captain Wyatt Sung?"

(Assuming a yes)

"I'm Lily, and Captain Havelock was my Grandfather." She pulls back the veil and you see she is a young lady, a lot younger than you expected. "My momma wasn't interested in coming but I wanted to pay respects to my Granddad. He drank a lot and told a lot of stories and well, I don't see why either would make me love him less. I hear a lot of things on the news, that my Granddad was a hero and he saved alot of people - is that true? Captain would you tell me how my Granddad meet his end? Honest now, I may be young but I don't cotton to lies and I am made of stronger stuff than you suppose."

(Assuming you tell her. Even trying to give it to her gently, there is something about her eyes that draw the truth from you. Her eyes are much older than she is and they are Havelock's.)

Once the story is told, Lily nods appreciatively. "Thank you sir. It is a kindness to know that he found his redemption. I would thank you for being there for him and the part you played in letting him find his way. To know he died sober and as a soldier, well, it means a world to me. I know that this burial are his last wishes and i abide by them but I think my granddad would want you to have this." She hands the wooden box to Wyatt, "It ain't much good to me and my momma doesn't want it in the house."

Inside the box is an Independence Service revolver in a felt lined holder. It is well care for but has nicks and scuffs that speak of being a weapon used in to war, not a commemorative piece.

"I have to get back to the farm. Momma can;t kept the books straight and the farm hands will walk all over her if I ain't there." Lily says, "Good luck Captain and godspeed on your journey."

you are about 70 feet from the torchbearer

Btw - if you have played Tomb of Horror before, do not worry as it will not help you much in this game. This is MY tomb of horrors so besides a few familiar monsters you won't recognize much. I found the ToH rather easy so I changed it.

Subject: Into the Abyss

The queen nods her approval as all of you accept her charge. “Let us move to the garden immediately then and we will begin.”

In the garden, she gathers you around the silver basin and puts the orb above it. She gives the two amulets one to Arien and one to Sparrow. “These can guide you to Galen as well. You will feel them pull towards him but they will not know passageways or dangers – just direction.”

“If the three sisters are our foes then you will most likely be near a swamp or a dark forest – some place with lots of roots and earth. They would create a lair beneath a mound or hill.”

The queen smiles for the first time since she came to you, “Thank you all and may the gods guide you on this quest.” She then begins casting her spell. The garden becomes bright and then suddenly ....

You appear in a cavern, not quite dark as you are near the mouth of the cavern and there is sunlight some distance before you. (See illustration at start of this thread). The ground beneath your feet is stone, laid out as if on a patio or a courtyard. The air is warm and there is a slight scent of the sea to the air but you hear no sound of bird or beach. Before you is a stone bridge over a rocky gully filled with dark green quartz like rock that has a green iridescence to it. The Bridge is lined with columns with serpents coiled around them and there are two skulls, larger than a man on the end closest to you. A man stands between the skulls, holding a torch but not moving – something about him looks almost unreal or not natural. Overhead, there is the grizzly sight of bodies hanging from the stone ceiling with black ropes binding them by their feet. Although high up, you can tell by their garb that these are 6 elven hunters. They hang unmoving but their arms stand crossed at their chests not hanging down. Beyond the bridge there is sunlight and a cave entrance that has been carved around to resemble a demonic face.

Wait a minute .....

A demonic face on a cave?

Serpents on the bridge’s Column?

Giant Skulls?

You have heard of this place. Heard, but never been here before because, well, no one was supposed to be here again.

There are many stories told in taverns and around campfires of the great Tomb of Acererak – stories that frighten both children and the strongest of warriors. The Infamous Tomb where Galen had helped defeat the Arch-Lich over 75 years ago. Eight of the greatest warriors, mages and Rogues of their age had gone in and only 3 lived to tell the tale. But they defeated Acererak and the Tomb was sealed up, so how ...

Well all the pondering and wondering in the world wasn't going to help now. The Amulets pulls towards the cave showing your friend must be within. It seems that your destiny awaits you inside the Tomb of Horrors
