Subject: Finally II


Newhouse, Beylix, Jailhouse, 11:20am Day Three

Landlocked fer what, ya ching-wah tsao liu meng? We ain’t done nothin’ but land on yer s#!tpile of a rock on bonafide business… You ain’t got no ruttin' call ta go an’ put Roc inna gorram corral!” Sam asked,

Tell you what,” Wyatt drawled easily enough. “I’ll pay fifty credits. Consider it a handlin’ fee. You release Bowman, an’ we’ll shed dirt singin’ the praises o’ a fair and good lawman here on Beylix who can see further than the end o’ his nose. ‘Course, you’ll be kind enough t’ release my ship right away as well, cause you know that’s what’s good n’ proper. This here ‘Verse is filled with enough Big Bad Men…don’t need no Law joinin’ their ranks.”

As you stare at each other, waiting for someone to make a sign of backing down, the discussion of the gentlemen and the “would be” sheriff seems to be getting heated. There is some point of terms that they have become stuck on and neither side is willing to give in.

“50!” the sheriff says with a disgusted tone, “Tell you what, since I really don’t want to hold Luke here back from his destiny, I’ll let bail go for $250.”

“Not sure I’m going anywhere Sheriff.” Pearson says as he steps away from the towns folks.

“What!” The sheriff exclaims loudly, “what’s the problem?”

“We didn’t consider the travel expense for Mr. Pearson.” John Blake says with regret. “We mistakenly assumed that Mr. Pearson would cover it but he feels it should be part of the deal.’

“We are all agreed on the terms of payment with Mr. Pearson” Shem drawls regretfully, “But we didn’t consider that part of the deal.”

“Well let me cover that then Luke, as a thanks for everything you’ve done gift!” the sheriff says, “How much would it be for …” He starts to say and then turns his head and looks at Wyatt. “Oh…bother.”

Newhouse, Beylix, Emmett’s Bar, 11:30am Day Three

"James, dear, you did promise me a drink. Miss?" Willow waved gaily at the barmaid, "a bottle of your finest whiskey over here, three glasses, please!"

The lady brings over a dusty bottle of premium whiskey to the table with three glasses, “you gonna run a tab or do you want to add to my bosom bonanza, sugar?” she asks James. With a look that is an invite with all the subtlety of a wrecking ball.

“Umm … tab please.”

“For you honey, anything. And I do mean anything.”

Benny sits himself up and opens the bottle before anyone else can grab it. He pours himself a large one and downs it fast, pausing for a moment as it travels down his throat. He then pours a large dollop into all three glasses and looks at you with bloodshot but more aware eyes, “If you don’t mind, I need food. Been a while since solid food passed my lips.”

“That would be fine by me.” James agreed, “Miss? Can we have a menu?”

Benny laughed scornfully, “Menu? Bah! Fei hua! Where’d you come from? Darla! Can we get some Bao! It’s on his tab.” He calls across the room

“Sure thing Benny.”

“Okay.” Benny downs his drink again, “So you want my lucky piece. Fine with me because it ain’t given me much luck lately. Fei-oo! But what do you want it for?”

James clears his throat, “I represent a private collector.”

“Right.” Benny says dubiously, “What’s your story lady because he doesn’t look your type and you look like your story would be a whole lot more interesting?”

Brandr and Derry work together to brace the falling portcullis with one of the tables, allowing the rest of the party to enter. The pies are meat pies and the pitcher contains milk that has not yet soured but is no longer cold.The smell of burning is stronger in here, and definitely has a pastry scent to it.

There are sounds from the room to the north. You hear the sound of metal clattering and a guttural language being spoken. There are definitely beings in the kitchen.

I have been swamped with work and family stuff lately. Nothing bad, just lots of stuff going on. I am hoping to post today if I get a chance. Worse case - this weekend is a long one for us Canadians (The 24 weekend. Where we celebrate the 24 case of beer).

Topic: RPG Myth Breakers #1
Subject: Love the comic version of Olan


Thanks for the good reviews. Much appreciated.

The idea is to look at myths and legends that grow out of gaming and remain despite never actually being part of the rules. For example:

High dexterity mean you can automatically fight with two weapons.

If you have enough skills in "sneaking", you can move quietly in armour.

The Chain Mail bikini is better than plate on a female warrior.

As so on.

If there is a myth or legend of the game youd like us to look at, drop either Bromern or Myself a Pm or email. Doesn't matter what game system or genre; D&D, Cyberpunk, Space Opera, Western or 1e through 4e, we'd loved to hear from you. Keep it PG though.

This will in no way become a regular weekly comic here. Both Lance and I have jobs and families and this is a "when we have time" project. Loaded Dice is the star of this Inn and I look forward to it coming back at regular intervals.

Subject: sigh


Since I posted on April 18th, I have only four players post, and only two with actions. I am completely baffled here because I had such a good start with this campaign, but even the posts I am getting don't seem to have an action involved. Quips and commentary are great but I need to have movement to play the game.

Now I have asked before if I am not giving you enough to work with. No one spoke up. So I can only assume that half the group has lost interest, in which case I might as well close the game. Shame really because I have had such good tabletop with this module.

Speak up peeps, please.

Newhouse, Beylix, Jailhouse, 11:20am Day Three

Negotiations were going well between the sheriff to be and the town folk. They seem to be ironing out the whats and wherefores to both of their liking as Wyatt spoke to the sheriff.

“Mr. Bowman could be on that ship an’ it’d be you doin’ the public a service savin’ their tax money an’ all. Room, board, the cost o’ the trial, the expenses’ll just keep pilin’ up, an’ when the council returns from their business with you savin’ them all that money…well, can’t you jus’ see how appreciative they’ll be?”

“Well,” drawled the sheriff as he sat on the edge of his desk, “Thing is that prisoners aren’t really all that expensive to me. The jail is there, whether he’s there or not. Food is provided by a lady who is working off her own community service with nutritional if completely tasteless food. So you see, I’m not overly out of pocket. The council gives me a pretty free hand here to run things as I see fit so, not an issue.

“But, why don’t we cut to the chase here fellows. I’m sure you’d like to leave with your friend, and I’m not really opposed to seeing you or your friend leaving my town. So why don’t you post bail for Mr. Bowman, say 500 credits? I’ll send you a wave when the trial is scheduled and you can bring him back if it suits you.

Now I hope you weren’t thinking of anything heroic like, as you are armed men. It would so sour the deal these fine gentlemen here are doing, and by now, my deputy has put a land lock on your ship so, you ain’t going anywhere without my blessing.”

Newhouse, Beylix, Emmett’s Bar, 11:15am Day Three

The back booth has become the sleeping quarters of a man who has seen his share of bad days. He is a man of oriental descent, with a bald head and a straggly goatee. His face has the puffiness of someone who has been one with the drink for too long. His clothing are plain workman’s clothing that have been slept in (as well as other things) often. His black jacket, however beat up now, shows sign of once being well made and expensive.

Jimmy leans over the man, “Excuse me? Are you Benny Xiau?”

The man snorts loudly and rolls over in the booth, “Huh? What? I said 700! Give me cheese or I’ll ride the ponies for you mom.” He says sleepily, “and your little dog too.”

Jimmy looks over at Willow with a questioning expression and then leans over to tap Benny on the shoulder, “Mr. Xiau. I’m James Blake, and I want to talk to you about a chess piece. I have lots of cash if you’d like to sell.”

“Oh honey!” the barmaid calls over with a laugh, “If you got lots of cash then I’m the one selling my chest pieces. For the right amount, I’ll even let both of you play.”

I would agree with your assessment of Inuyasha. My daughter is a big fan and I have been kidding her for years about the same episodes over and over.

Looking forward to seeing yoru work. Hope your Wacom gets better soon.

I smite your smiteness.

Do not try and bend the Wacom. That's impossible. Instead... only try to realize the truth.
What truth?
There is no Wacom.
There is no Wacom?
Then you'll see, that it is not the Wacom that bends, it is only yourself.
