Topic: D&D 5e
Subject: 2e


For those of you still playing 2e, there is an alternate coming soon.

Myth and Magic

For a basic flip through, I like what I see and it keeps the old rule system going and viable to new players.

No intentions of blowing up anyone in a unstable mine shaft. But the shaft is 100 feet down at least so i wouldn;t recommend dropping the distance.

Paranoia. A game best played completely drunk. I will be interested how the online version plays out.

Do players make up their secret societies or are they told which ones they can join?

Hornsilver Mine - Topside, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:15 am Planet Time

Ash takes the lead and heads down into the old shaft of the mine with Wolf close behind. There is no way to climb down the rebar fitted safety ladders with weapons in hand so they can only hope that someone is not waiting for them down below, or this will be a short trip and a long fall.

(I am assuming you are going quiet and with no lighting)

As the two are heading downwards, after about 40 feet they hear a voice. The shaft causes the echoes to bounce oddly and it seems like the voices are right next to you when you know they must be below. One voice is easily recognized, that of the Luke Pearson. The other one is one of the Mustard boys, and you know there is only one left.

“They went down boss?”

“Yep. Keep your voice down kid.”

“Why? We’s alone ain’t we?”

“We got company. I can smell Tong on the air. They are looking for me no doubt.”

“What you want me to do boss?”

“Set up here, good and tight. Make sure you got cover, don’t be cocky either. As soon as they come out, take the men out. The Captain first, because he’s the most dangerous.”

“And the ladies?”

“”We’ll deal with the later. At our leisure. I am going to hunt me some tong. Click twice on the comm. When you see the door open. And remember kid – this place ain’t stable so use the suppressors and no grenades nor flashbangs or you will be in a world of hurt and we won’t get anything out of here but a cold dark death.”

“Okay boss.”

Hornsilver Mine Hidden area, Regina, Frisco, Day Nine 12:15 am Planet Time

Brigit laughed dismissively, “Don’t be fooled by the trappings boys. This is all smoke and mirrors to keep us away. Someone went to great length to hide this treasure and people don’t do that for chump change.”

The red-haired school marm approached the closest coffin without hesitant and flipped the metal seal upwards. The lock released with a loud gasp of compressed air. “You two boys want to make yourself useful and lift this lid? Or do us women have to do all the heavy lifting?”

Topic: Need a player
Subject: Need a player


Hello,

I am running a 2e based D&D game called Audalis Dreaming. I have lost a player and would like to get someone to step into the game. it has not gotten far (they just left the bar)so there isn't a lot to learn.

The character is Bas , a female gladiator fighter. I would be open to:

1) Someone taking over the role completely
2) Switching the gender and abilities
3) Doing a swap with another character completely in a "woof" moment. (WOOF Bas is gone, WOOF Bob is in)

You don't have to be very familiar with 2e to play, I do most game mechanics. A passing familiarity with the Audalis setting would help.

Thanks.

Subject: Let us get moving again


So it was that the party gathered in the morning and after a short breakfast, headed out from Sundel back into the forest and lands for where you escaped not so long ago. You ride hard and swiftly across the open road while you have them. This area of Pardinal is not known for maintaining the King’s roadways well, so a smooth flat surface is best used to advantage.

By the afternoon, you reach the end of the roadway to a dirt path. The forest becomes thicker here as you well remember and it is here that Talon and Crow dismount and go on ahead on foot to seek out the tracks of the Cruniak. The dense forest stretches up high above you and the canopy of leaves and branches makes aerial recon by Wan next to useless. The time for speed has ended, and now is a time for caution. All of you loosen the weapons in sheath or quivers, preparing for any possibility.

Talon finds the first sign of something to track but it is not Cruniak, but boot prints and many of them. Crow finds them as well including one set which is twice the size of his feet and four time his weight ut the deep impression. The age of the tracks suggest they have been through here over a period of time so most likely not Adventurers on the same quest as you. Pardinal is known for its bandits. And if that is what these are, then they are directly in your path.

Topic: What sort of game should I run?
Subject: oh oh oh


A star trek based game where two groups of players book the same holodeck at the same time. There is a malfunction and the games merge and they have to complete both quests to unlock the doors (and of course the safety measures are gone). The holodeck programs - A Dungeon Deep (a D&D RPG) and Zombies from Chicago (A Zombie attack 20th century RPG).

Go for it!

I will post the game forward either today or tomorrow. It is really non-essential for everyone to post.

I have heard from Gallirian (he was away on vacation). I believe that Dark Lady is gone so I will NPC her character until I can find a volunteer to take over.

Thinking that you are about to be attacked by reavers right now would be a normal reaction.

Topic: Destiny Flight - QnA
Subject: Questions in the Q&A? What a concept?


First off, you don't have to put OOC in the Q&A. .

I sent out a bunch of PM before I disappeared and I think they were lost as more than one person is in the dark literally and figuratively. So what i thought was known to all was not.

The electrical is completed down on the ship and that means EMP. However, when Grace was rewiring the systems for Destiny back when you first found her, she took the time to shield the backup system from such an attack. She spend days on end in the access tubes wrapping the wiring with the protective shielding. So the back up will come on as soon as the system can reboot (5 minutes). That will give you life support, inner ship communications and emergency lights.

Grace also hid one battery completely shielded to connect to if you need to get one thing working (airlock, engine, transmitter, etc) for a short time.

So you will be in the dark for five minutes and the backup will come online. Emergency lights will activate. That is what the assilant has noticed and you would realize that if you are under attack (assumed) then anyone wit ha scanner will know you are not dead.

Tess/Celeste - Your console and flight controls are completely dead. First check of back up will come up as dead as well. But Tess knows in her heart of hearts that there is no way Grace wouldn't have built a contingency plan for something like this. So you would have that faith to draw upon for the five long minutes until the back up will sudden kick back to life (You either have the best mechanic alive or the twitchiest)

Jon/Ody - There was an EMP in that explosion. You know it. Why else would all the electrical including the back up die. But Jon knows in his gut that there is no way Grace wouldn't have built a contingency plan for something like this. So you would have that faith to draw upon for the five long minutes until the back up will sudden kick back to life. Jon would also know that Ken would head for the main airlock and defend.

Ken/RPN - You played him as exactly as I would suggested. Being newest to the ship you might not have the faith in Grace that others would have, and work on a "man alone" basis. In fact, the power being restored so quickly might surprise him.

Jason/Phelan -You were just making a connection to a friend of yours who might know something of the Tong interests when you find yourself on the ground. Jason would know the following. Grace will get the system working. She always has in the past and no matter what the crisis, Grace comes through. Ken will be arming himself and heading for the airlock. Stephanie will be running through the ship soon to check on everyone and see if they are wounded. She will not heed her own safety.

Hope this helps.
