Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Map update

Edmund, you came along the passage but you don't remember much before that, you'd been wandering in darkness for quite some time. Indeed it had been dark along there too, you'd been groping along. All you recall is that the floor was blood-red and there were some kind of metal statues along the walls, spaced out like soldiers on parade.

"Um. You'd better come in, I suppose..."

Once the Lady Almah and her party receive word that Kardswann and the Kulldis gnolls have been defeated, they venture from the old monastery to the battle market and begin to evaluate it for eventual habitation. In the meantime, Almah's pavilion is erected, and you all are summoned to an audience.

Here, she asks you for an accounting of what has taken place. She gives you the interdict key, and urges you to purge the evil from the ruined church's crypt as swiftly as possible. She also orders Kardswann to be executed... and she's looking a bit askance at Umdrella.

Is there anything in particular you want to say (or that you want to NOT say), before we move on to the crypt?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Oddly enough... :)

Liberty's Edge

OK. Let me have a (quick) think... I'll try to get to this at the weekend.

Welcome aboard, by the way.

The wolves sit down and listen to Barnabus as he snarls and mutters in their own tongue.

One replies "Your accent is unclear, sir... do you say we may roam here provided we do not attack sentient beings or their herds?" She sounds quite apologetic.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I'm at work right now.. can only do maps from home... will try to get one done tomorrow for you (the one provided is a real beast to work with!).

Liberty's Edge

Excellent summary.

I look forwards to welcoming some new players to the game :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The mongrel-man scratches his head, clearly confused.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

If you want to contine, I shall be glad to do so.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I should go away more often... some nice role-play there :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Take care, and you'll be welcome back if you ever want to return (even with another character).

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The wolves appear submissive as they approach closer.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Note that I shall be away 10-17 April, probably without internet access.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The mongrel-man scratches his head.

"I reckon."

He disappears inside, returning shortly with some foul-smelling dirty rags.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

OK. Dusk falls and Silena slinks off to a seculded spot on the outskirts of the township, Calain in tow.

As the full moon rises, Silena indeed finds the transformation coming upon her unbidden but... she remains in command of herself and does not feel untoward or uncontrollable urges. Once the moon sets she is able to return to human half-elf form with ease.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The rest of the wolves have gathered in the distance watching. When the worg is dead they approach, cautiously and with heads and tails carried low.

The gnomes, meanwhile, are picking themselves up. One looks round.

"A blessing on your fortuitous arrival, neighbours. We feared for our lives at the attack of such ferocious wild animals, but it seems that nobody is harmed... thanks to you!"

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Please note that I'm away 10-17 April... first holiday since 2010, a delight to be in a position to take the family away :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Every good wish and prayer for your father-in-law's speedy recovery, Hijiro.

I'm going to be away 10-17 April, probably no internet access.

Liberty's Edge

The Justicars are not particularly well-known yet, unless you've actually encountered them. So on that roll, Edmund doesn't know of them... yet :)

Neither have said Justicars seen the young man in question.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Here - but about to go away (10-17 April), will not have internet access.

Have been talking to Edmund behind the scenes.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

"Smell? I cannae smell a thing."

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

OK, it will take a couple of days before the Lady Almah turns up.

And it is indeed full moon tonight. Is it just Calain that you are telling and taking with you, Silena?

Sonya, the temple to Sarenrae feels... uncomfortable. Not the usual warmth you associate with the Dawnflower's shrines. You reckon it needs reconsecration.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Things begin to settle down. A message is sent to the Lady Almah to the effect that Kelmarane is taken. Any surviving gnolls have made good their escape, leaving bodies behind. The other denizens of the Battle Market are, for the main, remaining: most were here for profit, and reason that your money is probably even better than that of Kardswann and his gnolls. Umdrella's quite delighted, of course.

What have you done with Kardswann? And will you let Umdrella anywhere near him?

A ten-foot-wide, two-foot-tall well rises from the centre of this circular room. Inky water fills the well nearly to its rim, obscuring its depths. A stone statue of a rearing snake rises from the center of the well. Along the length of the serpent's body are carved dozens of arms crossed over the creature's belly — each arm grips a long curved blade. The statue's serpentine head rises ten feet above the surface of the water, gazing down coolly to the northeast with amethyst eyes.

Clinging to the statue is a wet and frightened looking man.

Liberty's Edge

One of the weird-looking 'mongrel men' pokes his nose out of the door.

"Who ya? Waddya want?"

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Blending her movements seamlessly with Lothar's (have they been practising?), Rhasadilara spins to the right neatly decapitating the worg as she does so.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Aha! Ashe, you find a secret door in the south-east corner!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I do hope you'll be able to stay around, Lucia. As the older hands will know I too had a long battle with unemployment - and now I have that dream job, it gets in the way of posting as regularly as I'd like!

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Oh dear, that's a shame. Good luck finding a new position.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

So am I! Where were we...? Ah, yes, outside the Chymic Works getting some fresh air.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Oh, dear, this is getting rather messy... the heads themselves bleed as they are hit, whilst the scaly 'necks' excude a nasty grey-green ooze when they are severed.

It will take a while, but the pair of you can dispatch them all...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Grr, was just about to get cinematic when one of the TAs came in for some technical help! Now to wrestle my mind back to this... :)

Suddenly, Lothar launches himself towards the worg, leaping with knee outstretched. The impact is solid, he can feel - and the rest of you hear - the poor beast's ribcage cracking under the onslaught. Rhasadilara is close on the ninja's heels, a sudden burst of speed accelerating her forwards to make her attack... Is the attack at the top of the page the one you are making now, Rhasa?

Meanwhile, Barnabus is spellcasting.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Me to emerge from a rather busy week, I think :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Here is your new map.

At a best guess, Ebon Wings and Ashe, these were once living tigers whose heads were taken and mounted as trophies... and then animated! No bloodstone in here, though, at least not obviously. Does anyone wish to search?

As Ashe moves forwards, they snap at him... and each head appears to be mounted on an extensible serpentine neck. How far down do you want to go?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Up to you!

Are you sending word that Kelmarane is in your hands or going back to the monastery yourselves to report your success?

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The worg looks unimpressed. However the wolves have all decided that it's time to leave...

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The door opens easily.

Imagine a T-shaped hall, you have entered on the top-side of the crossbar at one end. At the far end of the crossbar there's an opening to another room. The long shaft of the T has a constriction part-way down, where you can see another slight gap in the walls, then it extends for about 10 feet to a blank wall. (It's a bit difficult to explain, I'll post a map on Saturday.)

Now here's the odd thing. Both walls of this twenty-foot-long corridor are decorated with row upon row of tiger heads. Each head appears to be that of an actual, once-living tiger. The heads are remarkably well preserved — their gaping mouths and glaring eyes even appear to be moist.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

There is magic, but no evil presences, beyond the door. Magic to the left, a small concentrated node, and ahead - quite a bit, diffuse.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Rhasadilara, you may attack if you wish. We're not really in combat right now since a conversation has broken out.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Hit points: either roll or one-half of the appropriate die, but you must decide before rolling!

Hijiro: what do you want to do? If you have not used a skill/feat/whatever, then swap it out for something else, no worries.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

You know, it probably is time to level up... :)

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Sorry, the wolf Lothar clobbered was the one which ran off.

"Live how you like in your territory, I shall do the same in mine!" said the worg, showing rather a lot of teeth.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Silena, you are holding a +1 lawful outsider bane greataxe. Ugruk had a potion of cure moderate wounds, a potion of expeditious retreat, a masterwork breastplate, a masterwork flindbar, 5 daggers, and a ring of feather falling.

Barezata - you remember mention of an 'interdict key' that the Lady Almah has in her possession, that ought to open the seal on the church crypt door.

Quite a lot of people (including all gnolls) have cleared out of the Battle Market, the only ones still here appear to wish to conduct honest trade.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

I am accustomed to teaching and speaking in church... but in a university it seems to be regarded somewhat differently.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

This dungeon is a real pain to map, but here you are: current location

E3 is the alcove with the switch, E7 is the room with the 3 chests.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Yelping, the wolf runs off. The worg looks round at Barnabus.

"Your kind did not seem to wish agreement so I went my own way. You have your territory, keep to it!"

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The people in the Battle Market initially applauded and whistled at the show, but fall quiet and begin to drift away as Sonya starts shouting something about her deity. Several of the traders start packing up their stuff. The bugbears leave immediately. Any gnolls there leave even more quickly.

Kardswann lies quietly.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

Go ahead, Sonya. If you've not used the spell or feat, we can forget that you ever had them.

And you lot seem to have been busy :)

Friday I delivered my first lecture at the university. They make a big deal of it. I was OK until people started coming by my office Thursday afternoon to wish me luck... but it went well and the students applauded at the end.

Liberty's Edge

Female Depemds on the game system (human in the real world)

The leopard leaps from the balcony in spectactular demonstration of the rule that cats always land on their feet, said feet pounding into Kardswann and knocking him flat. Hijiro stands back and watches, as does Sonya.

Barezata lets fly with a couple more arrows, which hit Kardswann. He groans and smiles at the same time.
