The Avalon Chronicles

Game Master lynora

This is a high level rules light game set in a school for magical kids, kinda a mash-up of Soul Eater, Harry Potter, and X-Men. :)

I should probably take stock as well.

Mr. Strider is being his usual, sneaky self. Who knows where he is. Kinda wish people would try harder to figure him out.

The problem with super stealthy people, who are 'being their usual sneaky self' is people forget about them.

Including apparently his player, who hasn't made a post with him since June, of 2014.


I haven't forgotten about him. Posting for him is just a bit complicated because of secret things. It would be incredibly out of character to just post him doing things. Only really post for him when it's necessary.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

Fair, but then that makes it incredibly difficult for people to interact with him.

It's kinda like Kitty, except you could at least see her, usually.

Aside from the obvious 'need to hide/be sneaky/not seen', are there any reasons any student would seek him out?

How can we help with the whole 'kinda wish people would try harder to figure him out' ?


I mean, it's mostly just that no one is curious as to how he's never seen. No tells, no signs of invisibility or anything like that. People kinda just accept it. I'm fine if people aren't really that interested in finding out. It's not a priority for me.

Most people are just going to assume he's an invisible stalker-

They're non-magically invisible, vietually silent, air elementals.

Glad you're feeling better, Lyn. (^-^)

Character roll call:

Dara and Sadie: Okay, so best I can find, Dara is in the library along with Sadie. I think Fei was with him for awhile? Maybe....not sure I'm remembering that correctly. It was before Fei left for the festival.

You are remembering correctly. Fei went to the Library to study up on the Equinox festival, and ran into Sadie and Dara. Here's the (well-buried) post excerpt to confirm:

Fei, of the Sun Soul wrote:
Fei had not intended to be this late getting to the teleportation room, but young Dara had been most insistent upon him staying in the Library as long as possible. Given his absences from the school over the last week or so, the young monk could not, in good conscience, deny that. (^-^)

A person that isn't seen is a lot less strange than, say, sentient oozes. Also out of sight, out of mind.

Or a guy who is made out diamond and part dragon, or a dude who changes shape, or floaty, teleporty ice cat, or a nom all the magics emo kid,

Me when planning my day: I'll update the game while I'm waiting for the kidlet at jujitsu!

Me while waiting for the kidlet at jujitsu: Why do I always forget how appallingly slow the wifi is here? *gives up on waiting for page to load and messes around on Fawtl since that's less typing so not such a pain to do on the phone*


Male More Human than Human Rogue 10 / Fighter 6 / Shadowdancer 10 / Void Incarnate 4

Argh....

Badly rushed post before having to sign off for the night. Sorry if anything there is confusing, I didn't have time to edit and make that a proper Fei post. Hit me up here if any questions


Both Doppelganger Except younger looking Factotum 16/Taskshaper 6/Chameleon 10(Gestalt)

I don't have any problems understanding nor any questions. Seems pretty to the point.

Which, I realize, may not be very Fei-like :P lol

Apparently my english is so bad it can be mistaken for a second language.

Welp.

Heyas...sorry I've been lax in posting...work has been a bit ridiculous lately.


Hey dudes. I turn 21 today, and I'm desperately seeking someone who is fluent in Japanese to help me with a translation for a tattoo I want to get this weekend. It has too much context to be translated by computer, so if you know anyone that could help, please do let me know.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

My brother might be able to help ya. If not, I have a friend or two who might be able to.

And more importantly - Happy Birthday, Magic (^-^)


Thanks!

And I'd appreciate if you could ask him about translating the phrase "It is well with my soul." It's a song title/lyric.

Google translates it to "it is common with my soul."

Belated happy birthday, Magic! Tried to post yesterday, but the site wouldn’t load after I put up a couple of game posts. Oh well. :)
Sorry I can’t help with the translation though. And, oh man, that song. My mom and I would crack up every time that hymn came up during church services thanks to a hilarious grammatical error. I was so mad/exasperated when it was one of the songs played during her funeral, especially knowing she’d picked it. Like, seriously? Who includes inside jokes in a funeral service? That she planned herself I might add. Like, thanks mom, now I look like an unfeeling lunatic because I’m desperately trying not to laugh and not succeeding very well... thankfully most people assumed I was crying. Except my sisters. They knew the truth. Yeah, my family is kinda messed up. :P


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Today is parent teacher conferences so my chances of posting are slim. Because I will be busy standing in lines in a large noisy crowd of people so I can be poltitely snippy with teachers who can’t seem to follow an IEP and/or are impossibly temperamental. And then there’s the other couple teachers who are wonderful and will be a short but pleasant conversation. My social anxiety says this is why we should have homeschooled. >.<

Oh, and sorry if my previous post is uncomfortable. It occurred to me too late to edit or delete that it’s one of those funny stories that falls a bit flat in print. My bad. Note to self: wait to post until you are awake enough to exercise good judgement.


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

It wasn't uncomfortable for me, but then we were cracking jokes and trying to keep things light hearted when my grandfather passed away in 2011, cuz it's what he would have wanted.

Also, back when my dad was alive, there was this commercial for Iowa Sound, I think, about a guy in a hearse rocking out to another one bites the dust and all the strange looks he got. My dad LOVED that commercial, but I think it was pulled for being offensive. Not too long after he died, I saw it for I believe the first time in at least a year, and I smiled, knowing my dad would have appreciated it. Perfect timing, and all that.


I think Monkey passed out on his keyboard, maybe.

@Lyn, nah I got it ok. That's not even the weirdest funeral experience I would have had, and I've only ever been to 2. To be honest, I've been trying to find the grammar mistake. The chorus of the Japanese translation is "Peaceful Peace" though, so there's that.

Second verse. The first parenthetical is supposed to reference the sentence as a whole, but because in English word order matters it only references the subject, i.e. “My sin”. So the song is describing sin by saying “oh the bliss of that glorious thought.” The irony of a bunch of strait laced virtuous people singing this was hilarious. Weird church humor. :P

It would appear the coding bug hit me too. One of the people posting to my recruitment had the same issue.

This was from earlier, when the ability to preview was broken.

Sorry for the delayed reply.

I'll hopefully be able to respond when i get home- been real busy the past two days.

Yay, I got posts in without the boards going down! I'd been trying since Thursday. >.<


Male Weremonkey Rogue/Ranger/Trickster

They were down pretty much all day yesterday(12+hours, I think), and they've been bad lately. Lots of crashes, maintenance pics, super long loading times, etc.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Taking care of sick kid. Please forgive delays.

I think Ghalen may be headed for a "pissed off Krays" moment.

Hey guys, a dear friend of mine has a kickstarter up for a deck of playing cards she's painted over the last two years. Check out Savage Majesty and pledge or share!!!

I guess the boards are being weird again. I saw the 'new post' alert for here in Discussion, but I never got one for Ghalen's post in-game. Oh bother..... ;D

(And I'm going to assume that James gave out at least a rough overview to the pilots during their training earlier this week about everybody's abilities) (^-^)


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

So so very sick. Will resume posting once the fever goes down. It’s easy to post to fawtl because no one cares if you’re a tad bit loopy there. But harder to post in threads where you have to actually think straight...


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Well, that was a fun week. The whole family was down with the flu at the same time. Trying to catch up, still fighting the fatigue. Less from the sickness now and more from the catching up on all the housework and shopping that didn't get done while I was sick. Trying to remember where I left off. Apologies for the delay, but I can't control influenza. :)

As frightening as this flu season`s been, we`re just glad you`re all on the mend over there now, Lyn. (^-^)

Probably. Now he knows why James calls him "Red".


Male More Human than Human Rogue 10 / Fighter 6 / Shadowdancer 10 / Void Incarnate 4

Well......that was quite a bit of website maintenance, lol.

Time to go look around and see what's changed (^-^)


Oh look, the boards are back. And they're goth now. And none of my bookmarks work. And I have a hard time finding anything. But they're back!

In other news, I've found something even more disappointing than not making it into a game. It's making it into a game with a really well developed character with backstory and issues and a wife, then the game doesn't even make it to a full page before the DM vanishes.

Oooh. Kick me right in the feels why don't you Magic. I remember doing that with a speedy rogue character I built a while back


I, too, know thy pain.


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

Woo, bookmarks work again and can access the site on mobile! Yesterday couldn’t access it at all, but that was partly bad WiFi. :)
The new look is going to take some getting used to though.

And I think we all know that pain, Magic. I have at least one character I consider cursed due to the sheer number of times that happened with her.

So infinitely knowledgeable. Good to know, though I already did. Poor guy...


Female awww, but that would be telling unknown

I...I think I actually have like ten free minutes where I don't have to yell at teachers....whoa....not sure what to do with this....
It's been a rough trimester, and it got a little dicey the last few days. At least we're done with the teacher who is a champion slitherer-outer for this year....but the math teacher with no attention span is still going to be around next trimester. But it looks like the kidlet will pass latin after all, so there's that


So wish Latin had been an option at my school.

And literally as I was typing my first game post the WiFi went down. >.<

So I feel like I'm maybe being a bit too short on the description here. If there's anything I'm not being super clear on, or seems at all confusing, please let me know. It's all clear in my head, but sometimes that's when I get the worst at description. I forget y'all aren't getting the same movie version. :P
