Swords in Sigil

Game Master Patrick Curtin

This is to be the PbP extension of Mass Monkeyshines.

101 to 150 of 834 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | next > last >>

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Kravok sighs and says "This is not going to go well ... I just know it. Okay lets check it out but keep your head on a swivel here I dont want surprises. First sign of trouble we bail out right?" He waits till he gets an affirmative.

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Oh and try not to get us into a fight... please I dont want to end up killing a bunch of people and not be allowed back here. Remember why we came to Sigil in the first place my friend. That was over a pretty face too.

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

Purposefully strides forward.

What game art thou playing at?

Perception 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (10) - 1 = 9

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Kravok follows behind more purposely keeping his eye on the surroundings looking for trouble and staring down any who look they want it with Crimson.

Perception1d20 + 8 ⇒ (10) + 8 = 18

If any one looks like they want trouble he will give them a good stare to try and back them down.

Intimidate1d20 + 10 ⇒ (17) + 10 = 27

Yet standing behind Crimson so he thinks they might be intimidated by him.

Bribes always welcome

. One of the players, a pock-faced adolescent with green spikes atop his knobby brainbox* sneers back

"Monkey the toss. Don't watch play we the toss next berk."




you note that the youths are well-armed, and sporting leather vests and pants sewn with iron plates on them

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

He gives them all a bit of a look. And says to his comrade. " This may not be the sort of game you are looking to play my friend. This berks look like serious business. But I am right here if we need to lay it down."

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

(OOC: do any seem intimidated by my stare?)

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

[Casts charm person (Will save DC 15)]

Could I see the monkey?

The Crimson Masque wrote:

[Casts charm person (Will save DC 15)]

Could I see the monkey?

Yes, you both did

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

"Could I see the monkey?" the Crimson Masque asks of the pock-faced adolescent after casting charm person on him.

Bribes always welcome

lol missed the intent there

1d20 + 4 ⇒ (9) + 4 = 13

"Ummmm hereyago"

The Xaos youth tosses the monkey over to the Masque. His mates look at him in disgust

"Sodding halfwit berk!"

Roll a DC 10 Dex check Masque to catch the monkey

Bribes always welcome

and yes Badger they looked nervous when you put on your grr face

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Te Mad Bagder sighs knowing that somehow they just got into a fix. But after the quick sigh he looks around at the adolescents and trys to figure out which is the toughest looking as he plans to take them down very fast and hope to qwell any trouble and that the rest will fall away once their toughest one goes down. He does not act yet he is just preparing for battle should it cme to that.

"So what do you do with the monkey now? Crimson? Are we taking it with us or do you plan to play their game?"

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

Dex check

1d20 + 1 ⇒ (12) + 1 = 13

[Crosses fingers]


Looks closely at the monkey Perception 1d20 - 1 ⇒ (16) - 1 = 15 and says Aren't you a cute fella?

Bribes always welcome

The monkey is dressed in a tattered blue garment, much like wizards' robes. He looks to be some sort of small lemur-like monkey, as far as the Masque can see, with large nocturnal eyes. It chatteres in a strange tongue* Sylvan. Anyone know it?

If you know Sylvan:

"Thank you so much! Please do not give me back to those creatures with the rainbow hair! "

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

I know six obscure languages, but Sylvan ain't one.

Linguistics 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (14) + 9 = 23 to recognize the monkey's jabberings as intelligent speech and not just random jibberjabber.

Bribes always welcome

The Masque can tell that the monkey is talking some form of actual speech

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

The Mad Badger keeps an eye on the crowd and waits perhaps impatiently for his friend to make a decision as to what he plans to do.

"So what are we doing here Crimson? This crowd is getting a little itchy."

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

Hold yer horses, Badger!--I know it's been 24+ hours irl, but it's only been 10 seconds in game time since I caught the monkey!

The Masque turns to his new "friend."

So, what's your name, friend? Waits. I was wondering if you could explain what you're doing playing ringtoss with a sentient creature?

Perches the monkey on his shoulder.

I hope this monkey isn't your DMNPC, Patrick.

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Kravok rests his hands on Painbringer and Quickdeath to let the crowd know he is ready for trouble

At this point he figures these guys are not nice and perhaps he needs to teach them all a lesson in manners and he only knows one way to educate these types of berks. But he holds off until he gets a nod from Crimson.

Bribes always welcome

The adolescent Xaosman looks at the masque

"Uhh. Me name is Gervais Throckmann. We was just having a bit of fun wi' that small berk."

Evidently having him charmed makes him drop the Scramblespeak

His other friends take a look at the large scowing half orc and turn to him.

"Bar this!* Yon berk's a dazzler!* Let's tap the post*!"

They grab Gervais and pull him into a nearby alleyway. The small monkey graps the Masque's hair and holds on tight.


Bar This: Basically: Fnck this
Dazzler: A wizard, usually with undertones of mind control/enchantment
Tap the Post: Get the fnck outta Dodge

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

The Crimson Masque resists the urge to quote Sulla in Raiders of the Last Ark.

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

" I guess you have found yourself a new friend. Do you understand what he says?"

He pauses and watches to make sure the whole crowd leaves and no stragglers. "At least they had the sense to leave before I needed to draw blood."

"So should we head back and wait for your friend to return?"

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

No, it all sounds like mon-chee-chee to me. But I do love doing good deeds, don't you?

The Crimson Masque heads back while disentangling the monkey from his hair.

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

"I like to get paid my friend."

The Crimson Masque of course knows he likes to do good deeds he just doesn't like to admit it. He needs to keep up that intimidating demeanor.

"If that thing starts to fling things at me though I am taking it out on you."

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

I have heard that there are some philosophers who believe that humans evolved from monkeys. Monkeys spend all their time masturbating and flinging their feces around. Other than that, though, I don't see any similarities.

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

"Just see that your "new" friend does not choose to fling feces on me and we'll be cool."
He crosses his arms and gives his friend a knowing look.

"Let's get back to your friend. I guess you are bringing that monkey with you now? This should be interesting to say the least. You always seem to pick up the strays." He gives the monkey a frown.

"We should probably figure out what the creature has to say if it is as intelligent as you say it is. Wonder why those berks were beating on him? Hopefully he is not cursed or some demon."

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

Heads back to wait for Alyda. Maybe buy some dates to feed the Moncheechee along the way.

Bribes always welcome

the is little and less visible for sale around these pArts. The small monkey makes a movement and suddenly he is speaking Planar Common

"Can you understand me now friend?"

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

The Mad Badger looks a moment. "Seems he can speak our tongue. So how did you need up here little one? Not the safest of places."

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

I've never met a talking monkey before! What's your name? I'm the Crimson Masque and this is the Mad Badger.

Bribes always welcome

The creature responds in a high voice

"a Pleasure to meet you both. My name is Frumios. I am not a monkey, I am a Lemurian. Be that as it may, i appreciate you rescuing me from those monsters"

the small Lemurian looks about

"Perhaps you can enlighten me as to where I am? I was exploring a ruin, and all of a sudden I wound up here without my companions"

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

The Mad Badger gives the Crimson Masque a look as he is more of the story teller and not wanting to steal his thunder he keeps quiet while he explains to the talking monkey where he is.

Bribes always welcome

As the two approach their previous location, they See Alyda emerge with their guide and an elven female with a rainbow mohawk mullet dressed in leather and spiky gear. Despite looking a bit rough and scarred, the newcomer has the most amazing purple eyes. They clasp hands and Alyda turns to the pair.

"Got a new pet, pet?" She inquires of the Masque

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

"Yes he is less likely to bite him than you."

Bribes always welcome

Alyda pouts

"For that I shouldn't pay you."

She turns to the elven chick, and nods

"I'll be in touch."

She nods to Zorzeg.

"Thanks cutter. We are square."

She looks the two over

"You lot ready to tap the post?"

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

Knowledge Planes 1d20 + 15 ⇒ (3) + 15 = 18

What's a Lemurian?

The Crimson Masque gives the monkey the lowdown about Sigil and asks him its name.

When Alyda shows up I introduce the two.

Yes, darling, we're ready when you're ready.

The Crimson Masque sweeps his arm in a gallant gesture.

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

"tap the post?" The Mad Badger gives a questioning look.

"I am ready to get this mission underway are we guarding you?"

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

"So Crimson are we taking your monkey with us then? Or we going to let him go on his way?"

"Have you figured out what a Lemurian is anyways? You always had that book smart stuff. You know me I am just about the bashing of things."

"So Alyda where are we going anyways?"

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

There is a very good chance that the Crimson Masque knows, but, unfortunately, Doodlebug Anklebiter has no idea. At least in this context--if we were in Howard's world or the Marvel Universe, I'd have some clues, but, here? In Sigil? Not a clue.

[Waits patiently for the Dungeon Monkey]

Bribes always welcome

you have actually never heard of a Lemurian

Zorzeg leads the group back out of the Hive Central District. The Masque tries as best he can to explain the Frumious the Lemurian what and where Sigil is. It's not easy, especially the rotating ring in extra planar space bit.

Zorzeg bids them farewell at the edge of the Hive, and the four cross back into the Lower Ward. The rain is less now, more of a stinging mist laden with sulfur and ash from the Great Foundry complex.

Alyda seems preoccupied, her spiky red hair peeking from her Cage cloak. She responds to idle chatter, but she responds to any questions amiably enough.

Returning to Swordhold, Alyda digs in her pouch and pays the duo what she promised. She gives the Masque a quick buss on the cheek.

"Whenever you get the urge to join the Movement you come see me love" she whispers in his ear. Then she is off, cloak fading into the foggy grey.

Frumious looks about

"is there any place around here for normal-sized folks? I have to say, you all are quite the giants"

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

While they walk the Mad Badger sensing Alyda's pensive behavior says.
"Anything in particular have you worried? You didn't hire us because of our ...well at least you didn't hire me because of my looks. What is going on?"


The Mad Badger pauses a moment or two ... As she walks away.

"Hmm, that was almost too easy." He says outloud after she leaves. "Normally we always get into trouble where she is concerned." The wheels in his head can almost be seen churning here. Yet being more the action and less of the thinking type he looks over at the Masque but doesn't say anything knowing he will come to her defense and not hear the voice of caution.

Yet seeing she is preoccupied concerns him enough that he takes another look around to see if anyone is following them or watching them. Having that bad feeling as it were that something went down and both of them are completely oblivious of it.

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

The Crimson Masque is also surprised that we did so little, but is nowhere near as concerned as the Mad Badger.

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard

To Alyda:

So, uh, I'll pick you up tonight at dusk, and maybe we could catch dinner before heading over to the Grotto?

Bribes always welcome

Alyda tosses a laugh over her shoulder.

"You wanna down drinks, see me at Caritas tonight about two before anti-peak."

Frumious looks over at the Masque

'What a curious giant. Is she your mate?"

Bribes always welcome

Badger roll me a Perception

Male Sexy 7th-level Bard


Ahem--"mate" implies two, dear Frumious, and the Crimson Masque defies the fetters of a repressive society that frowns on his shining his love on as much of the gods' great creation as possible. So, how about you? Got a special girl monkey?

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Perception: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (3) + 8 = 11

male half-orc Barbarian-6th/1st Rogue

Kravok gives a rare chuckle at the Crimson Masque's reasoning behind his "free love" nature.

"Yeah CM likes all the girls he does not like to tie himself down to just one gal."

Bribes always welcome

Frumious nods

"You should never have just one mate."

He looks about, then hops onto a nearby ledge.

"I do thank you both for your assistance, but I think that I must find the portal back to my home. I fear I am much too small in this reality to prosper. Do you know of anyone who specializes in finding gates?"

Knowlege(Local) might work

The day is starting to fade toward black as After Antipeak begins to ramp up. The many bells and gongs from the thousands of religious sites in the Temple District is carried on the sooty wind

The pub that Alyda mentioned is a strange bar on the edge of the Hellgate District. A cellar tavern, it specializes in songs performed by the patrons. The proprieter, Lorne, is a seer who can oft-times detect things about a berk, but only if they're singing whilst he tries. It is also a good spot to do any cross-faction diplomacy or the like. It has a strict neutrality, and anyone is welcome.
