Oh dear. Someone got Dominated...

On the one hand, I'm really sad at how this is proceeding. On the other hand, it's making for an epic (if tragic) tale.

Play on, group, play on! We wait with bated breath!

Grand Lodge

Yeah, last night was . . . interesting to say the least.

As a GM let me say that I doubled the size of everything for Sorsha's wing of the Runeforge. Mostly because of the size of the group. In a lot of cases this works out for the best with our group. Secondly there are a lot of inconsistencies that need to be addressed for these encounters. None of the NPCs speak Common (Taldane), I assume because that language wasn't prevalent during the Thassilonian empire. So for any of Alu demons, their ability to Charm Person or Suggestion is moot. Because they use telepathy I narratively said each person is barraged (in their mind) with languages until they are able to communicate with the PCs. If they couldn't they would just pout and look on petulantly. Second, how does Delvahine even talk with the giants? She doesn't know Giant and they don't know anything else. Unless I am missing something obvious I thought this wasn't all that planned out. /shrug Last thing was that I couldn't find anything about illumination in Runeforge. So I am playing it that unless otherwise stated, the PCs can see. Not much reason to describe a 90 ft. domed ceiling with a giant mural of people in carnal acts if they can't see it.

Otherwise their initial encounter with Delvahine's daughters brought on equal parts revulsion and arousal so well played there.

Rikert pretty much kicked it off with, they gotta die. The horns aren't selling their goodness. I don't remember if he ever did Detect Evil (been a while since we started and had a hiatus because of a foot of snow falling on game night). Either way, they realized quickly enough that he had DR and that their ranseurs were useless so they went with thei vampiric claw attacks to bypass his DR. They ganged up on Rikert after a couple of attempts to get Lynn and Sheldor to strip off their armor. Neither did.

The combined firepower killed two of the daughters (who were given advanced templates, with max health) in a few rounds and took another of the daughters to 10 hp who dimension doored to Delvahine. A round later the only "mostly healthy" daughter did the same rather than get slaughtered.

It was at this point that Xandu spent 1 minute using a wand to get Rikert back up while the group moved about. Some went to the cage and figured out it was a force cage while others watched and Moxie and Lynn stealthed their way to the pavilion. The giants heard Lynn and approached the door when Lynn went invisible. So I had the giants pull the strings and closed the door into the pavilion. Since they can't see Lynn, the opening of the pavilion would let them know when he tried to enter. Then laughed as Lynn described rushing forward into the tent. Instead he took 1d6 nonlethal damage as he slammed into the tent opening. Stuff has a hardness of a wooden door, but no one knew that. Eventually he walked in and cast Fire Snake hurting all of them and became visible. At this point they began pummeling him with two attacks each. All the giants were also advanced and at max health. It took two full rounds and one of those rounds I was using the ranged attack bonus not their melee attack bonus by accident. They managed to remove his Mirror Images and reduced him to -11 HP with a 12 CON so he was barely alive when Xandu did a healing burst to get him alive.

During all of this, Moxie had snuck in to scout and watch and did in fact snipe the remaining daughter who was poking her head from H7 to watch for the approaching party. Moxie had rolled a 6 and had a 39 Stealth, where the best I could get on Perception with the daughter was a 39 if I rolled a 20. So she backed off and the advanced Delvahine came around the corner and with a base 35 Perception spotted Moxie and Dominated her. A round after she talked with Moxie getting her to do her bidding a incorporeal Friedrich arrived and firebombed her for zero damage. So she Dominated him as well. Once she gave her instructions to her new toys she Inspired Courage telling them of their rightful place in the new Thassilonian empire and then disappeared.

By now the group had finished the giants and was rounding the corner to H5. Simon was first and was summarily executed with the only remaining bombs Friedrich had available to him today. Davok then came around the corner and could tell that Friedrich wasn't in his right mind as he just stood there with a blank but happy expression on his face. So Davok shot him and rolled a natural 20 and backed it up. I think Friedrich took 70+ points of damage from the shot and was then shot in turn by a stealthed Moxie for almost 50 damage.

Next week will be interesting.


Simon came around the corner with 87 hit points, 34 AC and a Jingasa of the Fortunate Soldier (once per day ignore a critical or sneak damage), so I wasn't worried about Moxie and thought Freiderich was out of bombs (I missed his comment of "I need to save these...). Also, Simon had no clue what was going on, was pissed off at Rikert for being such a wuss; everything we had faced so far in this part of the Runeforge had been a pushover as far as Simon was concerned, and... he was worried about Moxie. I thought I played it pretty well, and really didn't expect 130 points of electrical damage out of Freiderich. Ouch.

Had you merely gone negative and not DRT you would've heard Moxie giggle and exclaim..."Daaam, did-ja use enough bombs there Frederich!?!"


I *believe* that telepathy bypasses language requirements, explaining how the alu demons are supposed to charm people. And the book kind of assumes that at least some of the PCs catch the hint and learn Thassilonian at some point. (It took my group 'til 16th level to do it, though!)

There's SO much I want to write, but I'm going to keep my trap shut and go along for the ride.

Crossing my fingers for you guys!

Rikert Krupt – Paladin of Iomedae

As I leapt into the air to engage the flying demons, I saw that others in the party were also beginning to move into combat or firing from range at the flying enemies. I closed with the first demon and struck her with a powerful blow. The holy power of my sword sliced through her demonic defenses and left severe wounds. She altered her attack and discarded her pole arm and turned to her natural claws that bypassed Iomedae's holy aura around me. We traded blows with me getting the best of the results. Friedrich also began to use his bombs against the other demons as they turned from the other party members to focus on me.

I was quickly surrounded and fought a whirling battle against multiple foes as my friends rushed to my aid. I called upon Iomedae's powers to heal the damage from the creatures as the combat continued. Our combined efforts killed two of the creatures outright, and caused the other two to retreat using magic to gate themselves away.

I landed near Xandu, who proceeded to treat my wounds since I was scarred and bleeding from multiple cuts caused by the demon's claws. During this time, it seems that the other party members split up into smaller groups and began to investigate the cages and the large pavilion at the center of the chamber. (Simon will not be amused by this breakdown in tactics!)

After resting briefly while my wounds were tended, Xandu and I moved quickly toward the large pavilion, following several of the other party members who had gone on ahead. Davok had waited in between the two groups to keep watch in case another threat surfaced.

It didn't take long until it happened. Lynn and Moxie had already entered the pavilion as the rest of us moved up to join them. Suddenly, the sounds of combat rose from the tent and Lynn's voice was heard calling out, "Davok! Giants!"

As we arrived piecemeal at the opening to the pavilion, I pulled aside the curtained entrance and paused to look inside before charging in as the others arrived. (Player note: One round by the way. Not exactly being a "wuss" taking six seconds to assess the situation and enter as a group. I actually like my current character and don't have a death wish for him...or another character designed that I'm itching to play!)

Inside, we saw several giants and the fallen form of Lynn just beyond the entrance. His body lay unmoving in a pool of blood. There was no sign of Moxie.

Davok fired a volley of arrows into the first giant, and Friedrich followed this quickly with multiple bombs. Xandu had disappeared from outside, and I assumed he had once again used his powers to enter the tent by other means. Sheldor and I moved in the next round, along with Davok and Friedrich, as the giants engaged us in combat. We were able to kill some of the giants and create more space at the entrance. Simon arrived soon after and pushed inside the opening, making a brief attack before charging past the combat as he went in search of the missing party members. We dropped the last of the five giants and I followed Simon, who was just leaving the area through another doorway.

I warned him not to get too far ahead of the group, but his cursed reply was the last thing I heard him say as he ran around the corner into the next hallway. Seconds later, several bright flashes and the roar of multiple explosions burst from the corridor. The whirling electrical energy matched the bombs that I had seen Friedrich throw on multiple occasions. What was happening?

Davok had also followed Simon to the corner, and I saw him pause, a confused look on his face for split second, before he raised his bow and fired arrows down the corridor. Immediately after firing, he was struck by the meaty "thwack" of a bullet impact that staggered him backward away from the hallway.

I grabbed a potion bottle from my pack and drank it as I moved toward the corridor.

Damn. I really liked Simon. But I know his player was interested in branching out with other characters so...

Good luck with your next venture. (I just wonder how you'll recruit a new character from within the Runeforge...)

Maybe we will find another withered survivor trapped in one of the cages in this area? Sounds like a good excuse to justify Thessalonian knowledge and some other background skills. Otherwise, who knows how we will find him.


Yeah, I'm more concerned about party survival at the moment. Looks like Simon and Lynn are dead, Moxie and Freidrich are dominated, leaving Rikert, Xandu, and Davok.

Aren't there two more who should show? "GrAnnie" and someone else? Or are you down to 8 players now?


Actually, Lynn is alive. He was one point from being dead and Xandu saved him with a healing burst.

Lynn, GrAnnie, Sheldor, Davok, Xandu, and Rikert are all still up and going. Most of us are pretty healthy except possibly for Davok who took the uber-bullet from Moxie. I'm not sure if he had taken much damage before that. Xandu has been healing Lynn.

GrAnnie's (Mother Not/Naught?) player was gone last night for his wife's birthday!


If we stay together and QUIT SPLITTING UP, I think we should be ok. :)

Xandu has a high will save, and Rikert is immune and grants everyone around him an additional +4 to saves against mind-affecting stuff.

We need to kill the leader who dominated Moxie and Friedrich, and that should release them.

The other good news is that Friedrich IS actually out of bombs now!

Party conflict that pits the various characters against each other is always bad and potentially lethal.

Friedrich probably has the capability to do the most damage against about any target. Having him dominated and fully armed with bombs is BAD!

Davok destroys giants because of his ranger feats.

Rikert is the one to send after undead and demons.

Lynn's spells can push a solid amount of damage as well.

If Xandu can keep the rest of us alive, the six of us can hopefully end this.


Thanks for the update! I saw Sheldor in the original list and thought, "That's funny! I never hear anything about Sheldor. Is he still around?"

Guess he's the strong, silent type!

EDIT: Yeah, the biggest threat any of our Carrion Crown players faced was when my THW fighter got dominated and was in danger of killing a fellow party member a round. So I know that pain.


What comes next for me depends on a) who else dies, and b) how Useplanb decides to introduce possible replacements. I heard some player rumbling about retreating to Magnimar to regroup, but who knows if that's even possible at this point?

It would be nice to get away from the front-line-fighter concept for a while, but if everyone survives, I'm kinda stuck with it.

Did I already post the origin of Leilani in this thread?

I was the frontline fighter in every. Friggin'. Campaign. 3 years of Runequest. 3 years and 3 different campaigns of Pathfinder. I was sick to death of being a fighter, and everyone said, "So be a wizard! You're great at being our primary damage dealer!"

So in rebellion I created a Lawful Good aasimar Life Oracle with no weapon and no offensive spells.

What's awesome is that not only is she wonderful to play, but the entire party switched from "what good is she?" to "keep the angel alive at all costs" after experiencing just one combat with her doing nothing but running around healing everyone.

So I encourage a change! :-P

I'll admit I'm a kinder gentler GM, so when I realized during a trial combat that if the Barbarian is Dominated, the group dies? I alerted them of the problem. End result is that the Barbarian has a magic amulet giving another save against domination and the like, a Barbarian ability to do the same, hero points, and a wizard who can cast "Protection from Evil" using a point of Mythic.

That said, my group are wusses who don't like getting hurt at all. ;) Seriously, even if they just lost 20 or 30 hit points they freak. Tsk. And here I want them to FEAR for their lives. heh heh heh.


This is one encounter in the adventure that I see as maybe the hardest in the entire dungeon. The DC to avoid her dominate is insane, hopefully your party pulls through!

Grand Lodge

Well these guys have pushed through everything they've encountered. Dominate is part of the game and they were prepared for it. They just kept running in 1 at a time and there isn't a bad guy that won't take advantage of it. They need to weather the storm with smart team play and not rely on brute force. More damage isn't always the answer.

And Nobodyshome, as long as it's not a spoiler you can say it. I trust these guys to not read ahead on other posts. :)


Well, that's why I PM'ed you. I still think if I post it it's a spoiler. If I don't post it can lead to some awesome RP. I'm totally not touching it.

Sometimes I'm so eevil I just squee!

Ouch! You wound me! You devastate me!

And now, because we've already totally derailed Useplanb's thread (it's what you get for having such an awesome thread, Useplanb), a true story:

I was teaching Statistics at a community college, which is NEVER a fun task. After a particularly gnarly example, a student raised his hand and called out, "You're not Dr. Good, you're Dr. Evil!"

Fortunately, it was four days before Halloween, so I got to roll with it. After class on October 30 I went to San Francisco, shaved my head, got professional-quality scar makeup and costume, and arrived on the 31st in full Dr. Evil regalia, complete with leather-clad beautiful female enforcer (courtesy of my wife). I got a standing ovation from the class.

And the rest of the semester was, "I am trying to take over the world using this device. It works only x% of the time, or on only y% of the people. I need to control this many people for my scheme to work. What are my chances of success?"

The students loved it. I even had one student who was failing horribly who wrote on an exam, "I refuse to help you in your nefarious schemes, so in good conscience I cannot answer this question."

I gave him partial credit.

Friedrich's Journal:

More of the Second Day of the Month Abidius

The first area we explored in the rune forge looked as though a massive skirmish between many spell casters was waged through a long hall into a room with a single rod protruding from the center of the room. You could still feel the energy from the battle and bits of flame skirted about the edges of the room. The rod in the center gave off short sparks of electricity here and there, curiosity got the best of me and I went up to investigate. I was able to cautiously walk right up to the rod, and after careful study was unable to figure out what its purpose was. I moved off to another part of the room covering an exit next to Davok when I felt a sudden pulse and a massive weight suddenly drag me down to my knees. My haversack had stopped working and I had to remove the now heavy pack in order to move about freely again. Some of my other magical items were also disengaged. Lynn piped up and explained the pulse was temporary and our magic items would come back online after a little while. Having this reassurance we continued searching about the rooms. Davok found a pool of silver liquid with much the consistency of mercury, he believed it to be a substance that was used by the Thassilonians to enchant many magical items. Closer examination showed that the fluid had a charge and I believe we may be able to identify what it is at when we have more time.

Another we came across rank of foul rot and possibly sewage; a thick yellowish slime covered the floor and before I was able to get a good look Davok and Simon had already entered the room. Just as I recognized the danger and shouted out to my friends it struck. The slime that coated the floor was actually a Fiendish Mustard Jelly and it entangled Both Simon and Davok in its long pseudopod appendages. I spent a few seconds wracking my mind trying to remember what I had read on the creatures long ago. I quickly explained that they were resistant to fire and acid, they fed on electricity and they excreted a noxious gas. Not wanting to get close enough for the thing to grab me, I threw a couple of volleys of fire bombs at it and after the second volley it became a limp mass of caustic goo. Davok found a hidden cubby with a few potions and a lever that didn’t seam to do anything when he pulled it. Nothing else was found in this wing of the rune forge so I gathered my haversack and we waited in the main chamber for our magic items to kick on again.

After about ten minutes (we think, time is strange here) our stuff kicked on again and we headed to the next wing depicting Sorshen, the rune lord of lust. This wing had a short hallway with what appears to be one massive room with statues of Sorshen holding up a ninety foot ceiling large cages dot the perimeter and a large pavilion of silk had been erected in the center of the chamber. Four provocatively dressed winged women were making lascivious motions with their bodies, in my head I could hear them calling to me in demonic tongue. Simon seemed to be thoroughly enjoying the act, and I saw Rikert preparing for combat. I did not recognize the creatures and had no idea of their defenses, as such I tried out a new formula that turned my physical structure into a cloud of dust and flew up to get in a better position. Davok began to fire upon one of the creatures and I lined three of them up and breathed a line of draconic lightning… to no effect. They seemed to be immune, I need to invest time into more research apparently. As Rikert engaged one in melee two others went to flank him, and I learned that while they are resistant to fire they are not immune. A volley of fire bombs saw one turned to ash, however a quick inventory check showed only five bomb-vials remaining and I intended on saving those in case of emergency, besides Rikert was happily hacking away at one of the others. I went to aid him in melee and it was evident that was not my strongest area, however I did aid in keeping one slightly distracted. After a few seconds one more of the creatures had fallen and the other two fled elsewhere using dimensional doorways.

Xandu pointed out that there was a live creature in one of the cages and I went to investigate. The cage’s bars were strictly decorative in nature the true cage was made entirely out of an invisible force. I decided to sacrifice one of my remaining bombs to attempt a dispel and while the cage did waiver it was not removed. I was considering using another when a call came out from the direction of the pavilion. Lynn was calling for Davok, something about giants. I rushed with the rest of the party towards the entryway of the pavilion which now had curtains drawn across it. Fighting could be heard through the silk as clubs hit tiled floor time and time again. I pulled the curtain open and found a bloody mess where Lynn had been fighting, I was unable to do anything for him at the time and was trying to find a way to secure the curtain open from the outside, however, it was far too heavy to be regular silk and refused to be cut easily. I released the curtain drank another formula to turn into dust and simply walked through the wall to get behind the giants. At this time I was the only one in the tent and there were four giants looking at me quite quizzically. They slammed their clubs through me but luckily my partials simply flowed around the massive weapons leaving me unharmed. I realized I had not seen Moxie and feared she may have gone further into the pavilion so as Rikert moved in to engage the giants I went deeper into the tent, passing through the next wall.

I was taken back by what I came upon. An incensed room with a bed in each of its four corners and there was Moxie embracing yet another winged woman. I quickly lobbed a fire bomb at her hoping to break her hold on Moxie with no effect and my heart sank as she turned towards me. Moxie had a blank look on her face and the woman took me in with an expression I can only describe as amused. She kindly asked me to return to a solid state and I found that to be a most agreeable idea. She explained that I should be part of the great Thassilonian empire and that sounded like such a glorious plan, after all I have been studying them for years, why shouldn’t I join her and learn more of their rich culture and unparalleled knowledge. I realized I had been fighting the wrong war and we were only hurting ourselves by resisting. She explained that the others were trying to stop this and I agreed to help protect her and her daughters from them. I was glad that Moxie, in her innocence, also saw the importance of aiding our new friends. We took up defensive positions and I could here the clanking of familiar armor heading our direction. I held in anticipation, explosive vials rolled in my hand crackling as brilliant green sparks arced between them.

Single-minded Simon rounded the corner at a full run, impressive in his armor, and though I could not see his face through his helmet I could picture the bewildered look in his eyes as my remaining bombs floated towards him through the air. All three impacted heavily against his shining armor, engulfing him in a massive electrical discharge, leaving little more than a pile of ash and steaming metal. I’m not sure if it was an afterimage but I swear I could see his shadow still on the pavilion’s wall, white against the now dark charred cloth. Davok rounded the corner next and the brute launched a heavy arrow into my chest robbing me of my breath. I saw him stagger back as well, and knew Moxie must have shot him from hiding. Once more I was grateful that I was not alone on this path.

I know my attempt may be fruitless, however, I must try to stop them from harming my new mistress and her family; even if it requires my sacrifice.


Nicely written. I'm almost glad Simon was killed rather than have him dominated too. This is going to be messy. Trying not to make enemies out of everyone, Xanadu tried to save the last of the daughters but she left instead. It's hard to talk to other people when the Paladin and the half orc lead with "kill them all and let the gods sort them out". That leads the gods to have to sort out some of us as well. Arg


Simon says, "Xandu, remember what I taught you. Regroup, get into formation, stick together. Worrying about people going off by themselves is what got me killed. You can do this."


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook Subscriber

So, what are you going to come up with for a new character? (And any ideas how to do so while within the Runeforge?)

Messy? YES! Trying not to make enemies out of everyone? That was already done for you, whether by those who are too inquisitive (grin) or by those too aggressive (pointing), not your burden to bear. Now we must play it out and evaluate our options post fratricide. I can not imagine Moxie psychologically weathering this event if you are successful in the attempt to salvage the troupe. No matter the outcome, it will be glorious and fun! Another anecdote in the annals of our decades together. I can't wait!


Tangent, I have some ideas, two of which I have presented to Useplanb, about how we could get someone into the Runeforge. I have several character concepts that could be adapted to those ideas; it just depends on what the party needs when the introduction rolls around (i.e., who else dies). Freiderich's player and I have pretty much agreed to switch roles if he bites the bullet in the next few rounds. I'm trying to keep an open mind.


Ugh. Ugh. Aaaaargh!

My natural tendency to yammer on is warring with my hard-learned lesson on "no spoilering".

Will you guys hurry up and PLAY already!?!?!??!?!?

Must... see... how... Useplanb... manages... things...

Must... see... how... PCs... react...

Must... protect... Moxie!

Oh, Im going for a TPK. Teach these reprobates and louts what BF&I gets you. :)

No, Im not going to try and do that, but I will hold true to what their tactics say to do. Bad guys aren't idiots. The group already killed those. :P

It will be interesting on what to do with Uther/Simon about a new character. Im still thinking.

OK. Totally spoilering because I suspect my ranting and raving deserves it, at least until after tomorrow night when they've played the next session.

Most probably not an incredible spoiler, but being careful nonetheless:

You know as well as I do that the critical 'puzzle piece' that determines TPK vs. non-TPK doesn't have tactics written that deal with the current situation, so it's all 'GM's call' as to what happens when Delvahine gets directly attacked. Either you 'bring it', and the party dies handily, or you 'leave it', and as a GM you kind of feel like you cheated.

The way the party approached the whole thing, as a GM I couldn't justify 'leaving it', and I'd have a TPK on my hands.


Have I mentioned that I'm 1000 miles away, and I still can't wait to see what happens tomorrow night?

(And I'm unfamiliar with BF&I. Care to enlighten me?)

Heh. There's two spells out there which would give Delvahine a rather bad day. Sadly, I suspect no one in the group memorized either one.

Splitting up the group in DnD works about as well as it does in horror movies I see :P


NobodysHome,

You have no idea how much I want to read your spoiler. I, the player, loves (that's LOVES) to push the red shiny button. However I've played poor Xanadu as an easy going wonderer , that finds himself almost always in over his head. And with no formal training as a cleric, learns from his mistakes. Unfortunately I didn't get some spells off that I was intending because everything happened to fast.

Without looking at your spoiler I'm sure you've mentioned some spells like protection from evil and the like. Those are ready and waiting but I've had to heal first and foremost.
Not to worry though Xanadu believes wholeheartedly that Desna will save his friends through him. If GrAnne shows up it will be a little easier. Xanadu will die trying to save Moxie and even though he doesn't know that she and Friedrich are against him, once he realizes it he will need to make some fast decisions. Tomorrow can't get here soon enough.


One more note of interest. Xanadu, Moxie and Friedrich are the last of the original group.


and Sheldor & Lynn!

LOL. Sorry. There's nothing nearly that specific in there, and it says nothing about possible player actions.

You just have half a dozen avid fans here in the Bay Area drooling over tomorrow night's game, and since we can't hurry time, we post nonsense!

You guys win the award for most exciting cliff-hanger EVER on the boards!

(OK. Maybe a teensy exaggeration, but as one of you said last page, Dominated PvP makes for an exciting story for those not having to live through it...)

I've taken to ending my Skyrim (Reign of Winter) game on "combat is about to happen" moments. Last one was the fight for the Winter Portal (which was then continued via e-mail and wrapped up just before the next game), and the next one is with the guards coming to take Nadya away.

It tends to make players more interested in having the next game rather than procrastinate on it... ^^;;

Yes, that's right. Sheldor and Lynn. Xanadu, Moxie and Friedrich. My bad. Still not pressing that button 'til after the game.
I have some surprises for tomorrow.

I also have to say that Xanadu loves this place. All it's colorful silks. Reminds him of his old caravan days.

Why do I get the feeling Layabout is a Warhammer 40K (or WH Fantasy) player? ^^;;


Well, he is playing a half-orc. But I won't say you're wrong, Tangent.

Lint is so fired up about this he's changed the spelling of his character's name yet again! :)

I think he has been Xandu, Xando, Zandu, and now Xanadu! lol

From what we know of the character (colorful silks and other questionable male clothing choices...), we're guessing that the Xanadu he is using refers to the campy, 80s nightclub disco roller-skating movie with Olivia Newton-John, and not the summer capital of Kublai Khan's Yuan Dynasty in China!


Xan-a-du! (clap-clap-clap) Xan-a-du! (clap-clap clap). I saw that movie in about 1980 (a friends was a REALLY big ON-J fan) and still have that crap in my head. Too bad it was Gene Kelly's last film.

Ok, end threadjack.

I kind of expected some email chatter about tonight's fiasco, and am currently deafened by the silence. I can't wait to see how everyone's assumptions play out. Not well, is my thought. I'm kinda looking forward to Useplanb's very first TRK.


ROFLMAO

What can I say. Poor Xandu. Even his player mistreats him.


Hey, I just realized that it's my oh so smart phone that keeps "fixing" my spelling.

LOL. My not-so-smart phone is an antique, 2=ABC, 3=DEF, etc. phone with a "guess the word he tried to type" model. My favorite quote: "The internet here is slower than Anne washing a slave!"

Yeah, my phone felt that "slave" was more likely than "plate".

Anyway, I am going to absolutely, positively, NOT post anything else to this thread until after tonight.

At which point I'm going to be begging y'all for all the gory details! No matter what happens next, it's already epic, and the conclusion is going to be just that incredible as a result!

Good luck, players! Good luck, Useplanb!

No matter what, it's going to be good!


When she's finished washing her...umm...whatever, tell Anne I'm next!!!!
