Jan 10 14 - Long Live the King

[Master] ==== Gaming session has been running for and 14 seconds ====

[Master] So I should be back up an dnormal

[Master] at 430 today there was an attempt to hack my computer through Trillian that my anti virus was apparently sucessful in stopping. I lost a bit of layout stuff in Trillian but apparently nothing was compromised.

[Master] There has been some very excellent stuff happening on the site this week, thank you all for that.

[Master] I am getting food, drinks and setting things up and will be back up shortly.

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

JohnAA has received the map Base Map.

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] Hello Sir

[JohnAA] hey

Lisa has joined the game on Fri Jan 10 18:49:44 EST 2014

Lisa is receiving the map Base Map...

[JohnAA] Hey Lisa

Lisa has received the map Base Map.

[JohnAA] it has been a great week on line

[Master] so are you caught up on the site John?

[Master] grins

[Master] yes it has been

[Lisa] Hello :)

[JohnAA] did not check today's changes yet

[Master] you should do that

[Master] before we start

[Master] just so you know what TMO and Eric are talking about

[Master] even if it is a different story arc than tonights

[Lisa] work pulling me for a minute - will be back

[Lisa] I am away from the keyboard.

[JohnAA] whew

[Master] grins

[Master] When Lisa is back we can get started, it will be from the base map

[Master] my plan for the future John is after returning from these story arcs, Qui goes off for training

[JohnAA] yes

[Master] and then Shur's story arc

[Master] and I am not sure if Miranda should be included in her arc or not

[Master] it has to deal with enemy species

[Master] so we have Miranda, Foto to go

[JohnAA] you do not have to do anything else for me

[JohnAA] did you paln one for all the henchmen

[Master] yes

[Master] Shur, Qui, Foto, Miranda

[Master] Branwyn is left

[Master] then the only one not done is Leatherus

[Master] BUT

[Master] the potential issue after this story arc is finished is what I am thinking of now

[Master] Tristan is level 6 right now

[Master] at level 8 he can get his followers if he has a church

[Master] so by the time this Era is over

[Master] and the Next Era is another One Single Story sort of thing

[Master] not quite sure what it will be yet

[Master] then the next Era would be a followers sort of thing

[Master] becasue Branwyn, Tristen, Ilero, Hoffman, all might have followers

[Master] of course that is looking at 2015

[Master] so not everyone is paying attention, grins

[JohnAA] and assumes none of them die

[Master] Oh I think some will die

[Master] that always happens

[JohnAA] I was going to wait before I blow all plans out of the water

[JohnAA] so much fun rp on line, Hoffman did not have as much to say

[Master] it was very funny that they all seemed to foget him

[JohnAA] but now I have a thought, but not sure when he should bring it up

[JohnAA] or where

[Master] tonight is Long live the King

[Master] next week is unknown at this point

[Master] depends on Eric

[JohnAA] and as we are working on this other adventure, I need to make sure we have the room scroll with the party pack

[JohnAA] and this is for Lisa

[JohnAA] "WE HAVE A POTION MAKING DEVICE?!!!!!!!!!

[Master] grins

TMO has joined the game on Fri Jan 10 19:18:49 EST 2014

TMO is receiving the map Base Map...

TMO has received the map Base Map.

[JohnAA] HEy HEY TMO

[Master] welcome Sir

[TMO] Howdy

[Master] when you are caught up question for you about somethign I mentioned earlier

[TMO] shoot

[Master] Thieves Guild

[Master] Ilero is almost there

[Master] what are you interested in?

[TMO] test

[Master] that worked

[TMO] there we go, that forced the chat window to move

[JohnAA] "is ther anybody out there..."

[TMO] Hmm. Haven't had any interaction with the Guild at all.

[Master] LOL

[Master] LOL

[TMO] Don't know how it functions in Drillian

[Master] you ARE the guild!!!!!

[TMO] ....

[Master] Hello

[TMO] oh

[Master] Regor

[Master] trains you

[Master] you are in debt to him for several trainings with the group

[Master] he has turned the Dragonslayers into a nice little thieves guild for himself

[Master] BUT

[Master] soon you will be high enough level

[Master] that you can set up your own guild

[Master] there are thousands of options for you

[Master] grins

[Master] and John and TMO are sitting there digesting the idea of how much they really are Regor's guild

[TMO] well, knowing me, it won't be anything normal, standard, or typical. But at the moment I have no idea which way to take it.

[TMO] since Ilero doesn't really consider himself a thief

[JohnAA] cool

[Master] so it can be a scouting academy

[JohnAA] neither does Qui

[TMO] maybe so

[Master] and there are lots of ways of making money also, gaming, dancing girls, etc

[Master] fencing, appraising

[JohnAA] but I have to tell you TMO, some people do not like not being what you are

[TMO] Regor predates me, so I really don't know the story there. To me he's just a thief content to stay in prison and train us. He hasn't asked for anything, and if he did, Ilero wouldn't feel obligated to say yes if he didn't like the request.

[Master] one previous thief in the group many years ago opened up an Art Museseum to show off things the group found on adventures

[JohnAA] I got in a lot of troubble being a fighter who thought he was a priest

[Master] Ilero owes him for his previous training

[JohnAA] or a mage who thought he was a priest

[Master] he never takes money for the training

[Master] he always calls in favors

[TMO] brb - gotta cook some hotdogs for Princess.

[Master] form some books to look for TMO for ideas will be Complete Thief and Den of Thieves to add to the Players Handbook material to give us a starting point

[Master] Tristan Elaire XP award: 500. Next level in 18912.

[Master] Hoffman XP award: 500. Next level in 9111.

[Master] Branwyn XP award: 500. Next level in 122216.

[Master] Ilero XP award: 500. Next level in 10817.

[Master] and John thinking of setting up a new Base Map

[Master] to make it clear for everyone who is where

[Master] Orchard House, Branwyn's Tower, Church of the Defending Mage,

[JohnAA] well

[JohnAA] I guess Skull Church is too far away to be added to that list

[Master] no

[Master] if you decide to bring it into the fold

[Master] it is only a day away

[Master] that would definately replace the Church of the Defending Mage

[JohnAA] Not is it is a fighter strong hold

[Master] grins

[Master] there is that too

[TMO] back

[Lisa] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] and there we go

[JohnAA] good timming

[Master] our group is all together again

[Lisa] sorry - performance review

[Lisa] now unemployed

[JohnAA] how did I do?

[Master] I learned threee new spells during my past review period

[JohnAA] opps, not joking time

[Master] we saved the queen

[Lisa] lol

[Lisa] I am fine

[Master] see I did not even notice the unemployed line

[Master] Lisa is the best research librarian I know who is not a librarian

[Lisa] but that is my comfort zone

[Master] and much better than 95% of the librarians out there

[Lisa] I must begin doing stuff I don't want to do

[JohnAA] sorry

[Lisa] such is life

[Master] training? hire and fire?

[TMO] if I have Complete Thieves Book, it's buried in a box somewhere. I know I don't have Den.

[Lisa] budget, scopes, client management etc

[Master] I will check fo ryou TMO if I have digital on both

[Master] I presume that I do

[Master] but you have the spy glass! did you not tell them that

[Master] it is very valuable

[JohnAA] hard to budget when you do not know what loot you will find

[Master] I have Complete in digital

[Master] not Den that I see quickly

[Master] checking other places now as you three get started on what you are taking etc

[TMO] Sorry to hear that Lisa. :( Never a fun time.

[TMO] we're dishing out of the Party Pack, right?

[Lisa] no big thing

[Lisa] was reading the chat - we have potion making machine or was that just to get mt attention as I was scrolling?

[TMO] How come we didn't take the Potion of Zombie Control to Skull Church? ;)

[Lisa] If it is in party pack you do have it

[TMO] so what's available for Shield Search?

[TMO] Ah. Scroll Down! A useful tool

[Lisa] I gave all the scrolls and potions to Tristan

[JohnAA] Small cast iron potion pot - put potion and equal part pure water to get two potions

[Lisa] that's nice

[JohnAA] I figure it is like once a week or so, we need to try it out I guess

[TMO] do we have/need camping gear? Or is it assumed?

[TMO] since we don't know where we're going exactly, we might be outdoors for a while.

[Master] it is presumed you have basic gear

[Lisa] when do we bring camping gear? :)

[Master] but you did purchase a wagon and horses

[TMO] Light Bulb!

[TMO] (sorry, just watched Despicable Me last night)

[JohnAA] When they say local weather, how big an area is that

[TMO] I have our cover mission

[JohnAA] would it help where we are going

[Master] depends on which you mean John

[JohnAA] Predict Weather

[Master] that will be within miles not hundreds of miles

[Lisa] that is good tmo - Indigo is not good at making stuff up on the fly

[TMO] Mr. "Won't Stay In the Box Even If You Duct Tape It Shut" is here to help!

[Master] chuckles

[Master] I cannot wait to hear what he springs on Indigo

[Master] or She I should say

[Master] and I must say WOW, just WOW

[Master] Den of Thieves is not available for download

[Master] even on pirate sites

[Master] only copy I can find anywhere is Amazon.ca (canada)

[Master] there is 1 paper copy

[Lisa] do you have hard copy?

[Master] did not realize I had such rare things

[Master] I am SHOCKED lisa

[Lisa] how many pages?

[Master] SHOCKED I say

[Master] do I have a copy!!>!>!!

[TMO] Shocked, he is.

[Master] grins

[Lisa] sorry

[JohnAA] HA!

[Master] 5 shelves still of dead tree versions of rule books

[Master] grins

[Lisa] do you want to send it to me to scan?

[Master] but in all seriousness

[Master] 95 pages

[Lisa] that's not bad

[Master] and it is a saddle staple book

[Master] so can be disasembled

[Master] cue John

[JohnAA] no disassembel johnny 5

[Master] so I might take you up on that Lisa

[JohnAA] I have a scanner a little closer

[JohnAA] not to rain on her parade

[Master] I have one at work also John

[Lisa] rain away

[Master] but no professional OCR PDF creator like she has

[Master] scan and turn into text

[Lisa] if you scan, I can OCR

[JohnAA] aaaaaahh

[Master] and or high speed scanning

[JohnAA] can I send you my library Lisa?

[Lisa] that would be better than mailing it to me anyway

[Lisa] I thought Acting was fine

Eric W has received the map Base Map.

[TMO] was going to say I wanted to do that before RP started, but then realized we're not playing that group tonight. So have plenty of time.

[Master] Hello Eric

[Lisa] Hi Eric :)

[TMO] *waves*

[Master] and thank you all again for all the excellent RP on the site

[Eric W] HI everyone sorry I was reading up there while i loaded

[Eric W] don't have to thank us. It was fun. Till I started drama :P

[Eric W] no hard feelings right Lisa/

[Eric W] ?

[JohnAA] we have been doing plenty of role playing with that group

[Lisa] see my post?

[TMO] Yes. Tristan started it. >_> Blame him. It's all his fault. All of it.

[Lisa] not at all

[JohnAA] what about me?

[Eric W] I haven't since I posted. My oldest is a monster

[Lisa] and it is all the lyre's fault

[Eric W] so i've been dealing with that

[Lisa] Jennevive cast a dischord curse on it

[Master] I did laugh at that Eric

[Master] LOL

[Master] LOL

[Eric W] so I may step away for a few

[Eric W] LOL

[Master] oh man Lisa

[TMO] I knew it!!

[Eric W] speaking of the devil... One sec

[Eric W] afk

[Master] I did laught at that Eric when you said that about "taken over by the devil"

[Master] and then the discord comes out

[Master] was too funny

[JohnAA] I thought real life was mirrioring game life

[TMO] sadly enough, if there was a discord spell running, no one told me. So all my verbal fumbles were my own making. ;)

[Eric W] oh man you have no idea. Its INSANE!

[Lisa] are you going to go afk for an exorcism tonight?

[Eric W] lol and booze for daddy

[Master] so to distract

[Master] you are all sitting around the Orchard House

[Master] Widow Washburn is making breakfast for you all

[Master] last chance to talk at home and bring anything with you

[Eric W] I was going to grab that longsword +1 otherwise I'm all set

[Lisa] definitely do that

[Master] and you can give it a name

[Master] and a history if you like Eric

[Master] we can add it to the site

[Master] I do not think we did that yet

[Shurkural (TMO)] (not seeing any magic items)

[Eric W] Cool i will

[Shurkural (TMO)] other than the potions with the other group)

[Master] that is a Lisa question

[Eric W] It is off Abu Dubai...

[Master] Home Base

[Eric W] since he hasn't been on in awhile

[Shurkural (TMO)] (High Level is not our stuff, right?)

[Master] versus Party Pack

[Master] and right High Level is prior to 2010

[Lisa] correct

[Shurkural (TMO)] (D'oh!)

[Master] maybe 2009

[Master] would have to check

[Lisa] are there magic items in home base that you want to take?

[JohnAA] I am redy to go back to that game we put on hold

[Master] lol

[Shurkural (TMO)] (I don't see anything, but I have something to add in a minute)

[Lisa] I was just trying to save time on who should get the vitality potion versus the health etc so I shafted Indigo and gave him none :)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (btw, Bob, what is the bluish area on the map on the LLK IC page?)

[Master] looking at it to see what you mean

[Master] but I am guessing a stretch from the upper right to lower left?

[Master] that is the swamps

[Master] no

[Master] long sword is correct

[Master] Leatherus: Attack: Two-Handed Sword: ((18-(d20+3))-1+3) [1d20=18] -1 [MODIFIED (+3)]. HITS Shurkural (AC FINAL: 7)!!!

[Eric W] :)

[Eric W] Thanks for being my punching bag

Shurkural (TMO) renames Leatherus to Leather-Puss.

[Master] and yes it is all correct now

[Master] so TMO what is Shur's cover story idea?

[Shurkural (TMO)] (are we ready to go?)

[Lisa] Leatherus no longer targets Shurkural.

Indigo (Lisa) loads the last of the gear onto the wago and looks around

Jilly (Master) comes up with a basket

[Jilly (Master)] This is from Korrin,

Shurkural (TMO) grins. "I got it! We just dragged back a big old dragon turtle shell because we might be able to turn it into armor of some kind! Why don't we go on a hunting trip looking for critters with tough skin that can be made into armor also? We can go where we like, and the trip can last as long as we want it to."

Shurkural (TMO) looks very self-satisfied.

[Jilly (Master)] she said, "Make sure that Indigo eats his veggies, this will help him stay away fronm those deserts"

[Shurkural (TMO)] (and we need to add that dragon turtle shell to Home Base)

Indigo (Lisa) smiles at Shurkural "that sounds like a good idea."

[Indigo (Lisa)] aligators?

[JohnAA] deer

[JohnAA] cow

[Indigo (Lisa)] cow armor?

[JohnAA] leather

[Indigo (Lisa)] Ohhhh. I didn't think about that.

[Jilly (Master)] We are the Dragonslayers, we are off hunting COWS!!!!!

[Shurkural (TMO)] Land shark. Dragon. Maybe ankheg.

[Miranda (JohnAA)] I am going to strt collect teeeth, I hope no one minds

Indigo (Lisa) looks at the basket and takes a sniff starting to feel hungry again

[Indigo (Lisa)] Koorin was here and knows we're going?

[Jilly (Master)] brb

[Indigo (Lisa)] I should have said hello if I would have known that.

[Jilly (Master)] back

[Jilly (Master)] Of course she was here Indigo!

[Jilly (Master)] who do you think is taking care of Prince Edward?

[Jilly (Master)] I am not going to do that!

[Jilly (Master)] Babies are not that much fun to play with

[Indigo (Lisa)] She's probably mad at me for not visiting.

[Jilly (Master)] or she might be happy you did not interfeer with Prince Edward

[Jilly (Master)] you might break him

[Jilly (Master)] you are hard on things Indigo

[Jilly (Master)] you broke two mugs in the tower last week

[Indigo (Lisa)] I don't mean to be

[Jilly (Master)] and those blood stains are hard to get out of yoru clothes

[Jilly (Master)] imagine if you get them on Prince Edward

[Jilly (Master)] I am not sure even Korrin can get that out

Indigo (Lisa) frowns "I wouldn't pick up the Prince in dirty clothes.

Jilly (Master) jilly looks Indigo up and down

[Indigo (Lisa)] Unless you tried to drop him and I had to catch him!

[Jilly (Master)] Try to drop him!

[Jilly (Master)] If I wanted to drop him I could!

[Jilly (Master)] and you cannot stop me

[Jilly (Master)] ummmmm

[Jilly (Master)] I mean

[Jilly (Master)] no

[Jilly (Master)] I would not drop Prince Edward

Jilly (Master) looks down for a moment

[Indigo (Lisa)] It's okay. I know what you meant.

Jilly (Master) smiles at Indigo

[Jilly (Master)] thanks

Jilly (Master) HUGS

[Jilly (Master)] runs off

[Jilly (Master)] I hae to get the horses ready!

[Miranda (JohnAA)] I do miss that a bit

[Indigo (Lisa)] Getting horses ready?

[Miranda (JohnAA)] I do miss that a bit

[Indigo (Lisa)] You can drive the wagon with Jilly for the first leg if you want.

[Miranda (JohnAA)] (that was on the babysitting, but I will roll with it)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (no - correct him)

[Miranda (JohnAA)] I used to take care of Orphans

[Master] Marisu Spell Target moved 6'10".

[Miranda (JohnAA)] it was a simpler life in many ways

Indigo (Lisa) looks up at Miranda, "You did? I didn't know that."

[Master] Marisu moved 11'07".

[Indigo (Lisa)] I bet you didn't drop any babies either.

[Miranda (JohnAA)] no

[Indigo (Lisa)] Do you want your own baby?

[Miranda (JohnAA)] no

[Shurkural (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Marisu modified: Personal Information - Date of Birth:: CHANGED: 8-17-327 (null).

[Shurkural (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Marisu modified: Personal Information - Date of Birth:: CHANGED: '8-17-327 (8-17-327).

[Miranda (JohnAA)] (bit of a lag)

[Shurkural (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Marisu modified: Personal Information - Date of Birth:: CHANGED: 8 / 17 / 327 ('8-17-327).

[Indigo (Lisa)] It might be fun. But I don't think we could bring him on adventures.

[Shurkural (TMO)] (how sensitive is Indigo to short jokes?)

[Miranda (JohnAA)] (bit of a lag)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (he is okay - he is used to it)

[Shurkural (TMO)] But it'd be nice to have someone around who could look up to Indigo.

[Miranda (JohnAA)] oooohhhh

Indigo (Lisa) grins "well Brother Foto comes close"

Widow Washburn (Master) swats Shur with a dishcloth

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] I do look up to Sir Indigo

[Widow Washburn (Master)] now now

[Widow Washburn (Master)] Master Indigo is taller in spirit than many of the more famous knights

[Widow Washburn (Master)] although I do wish he woudl eat more

[Widow Washburn (Master)] and you young lady

Shurkural (TMO) grins and jumps away from the widow's rag.

[Indigo (Lisa)] I could always eats more

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I packed an extra hair brush for you

[Widow Washburn (Master)] if you are in the woods you cannot be too careful

[Widow Washburn (Master)] that Ilero never does take proper care of those things for you, I do not know what to do with him

[Widow Washburn (Master)] looks Leatherus over

Shurkural (TMO) chuckles.

[Widow Washburn (Master)] you do look formidable at least

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I do hope you have your own gear with you?

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I might have something in a back closet that Foriso left

[Widow Washburn (Master)] that might fit you

[Widow Washburn (Master)] although you look broader in the chest than he was

[Eric W] I am back at the keyboard.

Leatherus (Eric W) nods thankfully

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Who was Foriso?

[Widow Washburn (Master)] it is good to have Master Indigo back here for at least a day

[Leatherus (Eric W)] A warrior you knew?

[Widow Washburn (Master)] Foriso was .. ... not quite a warrior but he was a friend of Branwyn

[Indigo (Lisa)] (Guy's original character - a thief)

[Widow Washburn (Master)] before she was mysterious

[Widow Washburn (Master)] and a lady

[Widow Washburn (Master)] and quite so dangerous

Indigo (Lisa) laughs heartily "She still isn't mysterious!"

Leatherus (Eric W) smiles and thinks of himself as "dangerous"

Widow Washburn (Master) looks at Inidgo and smiles

[Widow Washburn (Master)] do you folks need anything else?

[Widow Washburn (Master)] Master Indigo did you clear the taxes with Master Medero for the year yet?

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I have a bit put away for it if you need

[Indigo (Lisa)] Ummmm.... I thought Branwyn did that.

[Widow Washburn (Master)] she did last year

[Widow Washburn (Master)] but it is already coming up on New Years day again

[Indigo (Lisa)] No no! You buy yourself a pretty dress and let Branwyn pay the taxes.

[Widow Washburn (Master)] pssssshhhh I do not need any pretty dresses

[Widow Washburn (Master)] but if you do see a blacksmith on your travels, see if they have a new frying pan

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I dented mine last month and I cannot get the eggs to sit just right anymore

[Indigo (Lisa)] Did you hit someone with it?

[Widow Washburn (Master)] not a someone, it was just a big dog

[Widow Washburn (Master)] nasty thing

[Widow Washburn (Master)] but it yelled and ran way

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] no problem

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] no problem

[Widow Washburn (Master)] OH Brother Foto!

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I found these two stones that the dog dropped

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I thought maybe you might look at them

[Indigo (Lisa)] uh-oh

[Indigo (Lisa)] Hope it wasn't Miranda's dog

[Widow Washburn (Master)] and see if you can shine them up like you do with the others you have

[Indigo (Lisa)] (major lag there for me and my typing)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (better now)

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] It will have to wait

[Indigo (Lisa)] Yuck! You are giving Miranda dog droppings?

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] I will look at when I get back

[Shurkural (TMO) (to GM only)] Character sheet for Marisu modified: Personal Information - Date of Birth:: CHANGED: 8|17|327 (8 / 17 / 327). Height/Weight:: CHANGED: 5'6" / 110 (null).

[Widow Washburn (Master)] are you going to be gone long?

[Widow Washburn (Master)] where are you going this time?

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] We will not be back soon enough

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] but we can talk when we get back

[Widow Washburn (Master)] of course we will

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I will make sure I have a nice dinner ready for you

[Indigo (Lisa)] And we aren't quite sure where. But we must be off. Take care Widow Washburn!

[Widow Washburn (Master)] Jilly!

[Widow Washburn (Master)] JILLY@

[Widow Washburn (Master)] where is that girl

[Widow Washburn (Master)] she needs to tell me when you come back so I can be ready

[Widow Washburn (Master)] pjhhhhh

[Widow Washburn (Master)] I will twist her ear tomorrow

[Widow Washburn (Master)] have fun Master Indigo

[Widow Washburn (Master)] stay good and please

[Widow Washburn (Master)] try to avoid getting any blood stains on your good tabards

[Widow Washburn (Master)] the Missus will be upset

Indigo (Lisa) looks down "I will try"

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] and I will help

[Master] ( I do like how everyone on the Estates still calls her the Missus, instead of Queen)

Leatherus (Eric W) fingers his sword "I make no such promises i'm afraid"

[Master] so anything else out of the storerooms before you leave?

[Master] and then heading out

[Master] your first stop would be ?

[Shurkural (TMO)] (whatever Shur will need to skin and preserve hides)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (and pull teeth, claws, fuzzy lumpkins, whatever)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (ranger gear stuff)

[Master] all in the waggon

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] (I true ranger only needs his knofe

[Master] chuckles

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (I have climbing gear and rope... gotta have rope)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (WOW I"m super laggy)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] well that was better

[Indigo (Lisa)] (our first stop would depend I suppose on encounters, but isn't miller's the first town type place?)

[Master] yes

[Indigo (Lisa)] ( I have been laggy off and on too)

[Master] sorry about that

[Master] I just stopped a podcast I was listening to

[Master] in case that affects it

[Master] poor sad little internet

[Indigo (Lisa)] (i like stopping at miller's for news and we can order that frying pan)

[Master] so as long as you have everything

[Master] double check home base, etc

[Master] and we can be at Millers

[Shurkural (TMO)] (as far as I know)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (you know what we are forgetting - that is why you keep manetioning it 50 times)

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] (click away)

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] (we have food and water?)

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] (does Qui have a good image in his mind of the shield?)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (I always have the widow give us something to start with and we can buy or kill more as we go)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (we have the scrolls we just got)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (indigo has his light buckle)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (I think we are as ready as we are going to be)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (i don't see anything.. I'll let bob tell us later what we should have brought)

[Master] chuckles

[Shurkural (TMO)] we're not going in the swamp, so we don't need the bullywug spear. Are we going to be by Rivers Bend and need the map?

[Indigo (Lisa)] (no)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (there's the collection of maps)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (good question no swamp??)

[Master] no swamps planning on taking the roads

[Leatherus (Eric W)] ok then I'm good to go

Indigo (Lisa) starts clicking coconuts together and makes off away from the house

[Leatherus (Eric W)] LOL

[Shurkural (TMO)] (hey, you just put my wife to sleep!)

[Brother Fotopoulos (JohnAA)] (it is my bed time and we just started)

[Master] but he has many others along those lines

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (I know I haven't)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (shur has been there - we stopped on bday game)

[Old Man Miller #4 (Master)] Drinks all around!

[Leatherus (Eric W)] LOL WOW

Indigo (Lisa) looks around startled

[Leatherus (Eric W)] No this I can get used to

[Shurkural (TMO)] (btw, y'all realize what you just did? You separated Shur from Ilero. Let the flirting begin!!)

Leatherus (Eric W) tosses his gear on the table and grabs a mug of ale

[Old Man Miller (Master)] What are you doing here?

[Indigo (Lisa)] Well of course I am. Did you think I wasn't alive?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] Well maybe not dead

JohnAA is receiving the map boarding_house_tavern 1st floor...

[Old Man Miller (Master)] but not the kind of person who comes to a place like this anymore

[JohnAA] I am back at the keyboard.

[JohnAA] sorry

JohnAA has received the map boarding_house_tavern 1st floor.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] You are a knight

[Indigo (Lisa)] That's silly. I like your place.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] part of the Queen's Guard

[Miranda (JohnAA)] I thought someone would be dead

[Miranda (JohnAA)] but we survived the first dragon so who knows

[Old Man Miller (Master)] first dragon?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] OH

[Old Man Miller (Master)] right

[Old Man Miller (Master)] yeah

[Old Man Miller (Master)] that was a horrible thing

[Old Man Miller (Master)] (brb as Lisa and John explain that almost fo pa)

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

Indigo (Lisa) walks over to the bar and has a seat

[Indigo (Lisa)] Indigo moved 14'00".

Indigo (Lisa) waves the others over

[Miranda (JohnAA)] (you have to read the first chat log to appriciate it ;) )

[Miranda (JohnAA)] Oh Indigo, I forget you were not htere

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Leatherus moved 12'11".

Shurkural (TMO) follows along and dumps her pack down at her feet before taking her seat at the bar.

[Miranda (JohnAA)] or here

[Miranda (JohnAA)] back then

[Indigo (Lisa)] No I was captured by the bugbear pirates back then.

[Leatherus (Eric W)] A fine place you have her Miaster Miller

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Shurkural (TMO)] Sounds like a blast, sugar.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Shurkural moved 19'11".

[Indigo (Lisa)] Miranda moved 18'02".

[Indigo (Lisa)] Brother Fotopoulos moved 14'07".

[Indigo (Lisa)] QuiFon Ruminel moved 20'02".

[Miranda (JohnAA)] No No please

Shurkural (TMO) hides a snicker behind her hand.

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] I am please to meet you

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] thought you might be wizer but in a diffrent way

[Old Man Miller (Master)] oh I am wise already, in fact there was a Brother through just last week who called me a wise guy

[Old Man Miller (Master)] it was nice of him I thought

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] Brother to whom

[Old Man Miller (Master)] the Brotherhood

[Old Man Miller (Master)] they were only here for a short bit

[Indigo (Lisa)] Ohhh how are they doing?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] they were chasing down some werewolf or something

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I was surprised and told them that

Shurkural (TMO) perks up and listens.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Better than a vampire I guess

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I thought that they were only worried about vampires killing things

[Old Man Miller (Master)] who knew they cared about wolves too

[Old Man Miller (Master)] that is when he said I was a wise guy

[Old Man Miller (Master)] so I must have been onto something

[Indigo (Lisa)] (lol)

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] which way were they going?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] south

[Indigo (Lisa)] That's where we're ....

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] That what I thought

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] (click)

Indigo (Lisa) stops quickly and takes a drink of ale

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] It is a big world south

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] wonder if we will run into them

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] or rather when

[Old Man Miller (Master)] do you ever talk with Jill the Blacksmith?

[Indigo (Lisa)] The Brothers are powerful. I liked them.

[Indigo (Lisa)] I was going to send Jilly over to her to order a frying pan.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] (Jill works at Jistille now)

[Indigo (Lisa)] And you also have to meet our new friend, Leatherus.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (oh no)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (oops - no frying pan for the widow soon)

[Old Man Miller (Master)] You have very powerful friends Indigo

[Old Man Miller (Master)] if you are friends with the Brotherhood

[Old Man Miller (Master)] so what happened to Branwyn/

[Old Man Miller (Master)] did she get eaten by a dragon?

[Leatherus (Eric W)] From what I hear they are fierce and noble fighters

[Indigo (Lisa)] Oh she's off on another mission.

[Miranda (JohnAA)] not a chance

[Old Man Miller (Master)] a mission!

[Old Man Miller (Master)] another mission

[Old Man Miller (Master)] so that means you are on a mission too?

[Miranda (JohnAA)] she is always on a mission

[Old Man Miller (Master)] leans in and whispers

[Old Man Miller (Master)] so what are you looking for?

Miranda (JohnAA) give Indigo a look

Indigo (Lisa) shakes his head "I'm not on a mission"

[Old Man Miller (Master)] pauses

[Old Man Miller (Master)] looks at the group

[Old Man Miller (Master)] OHHHHH

Indigo (Lisa) looks up proudly "We are on a hunting expedition!"

[Old Man Miller (Master)] nods, winks

[Old Man Miller (Master)] yeah

[Old Man Miller (Master)] not on a mission

[Miranda (JohnAA)] We are looking for adventure

[Miranda (JohnAA)] no where beter to find it than on the road

Indigo (Lisa) thinks for a moment "But you might know how Branwyn and the others will do on theirs, come to think of it."

[Old Man Miller (Master)] talks louder to the rest of the group, I am glad that Master Indigo is taking you out on a HUNTING EXPEDITION, yeah, that is a nice thing for Master Indigo who works for the Queen do to

[Old Man Miller (Master)] nods

[Old Man Miller (Master)] that is a very good thing for you to do Master Indigo

Indigo (Lisa) shifts in his seat nervously

[Miranda (JohnAA)] (ssshhh were huntin rabbits)

[Indigo (Lisa)] Thank you?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] no problem,

Shurkural (TMO) rests her head in her hands.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] he grins and pushes another tankard of ale over to Indigo

[Indigo (Lisa)] Have you heard any news about Skull Church?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] that crazy place?

Indigo (Lisa) laughs and nods

[Old Man Miller (Master)] we had another group of pilgrims through here to head that way a couple of weeks ago

[Old Man Miller (Master)] hmm

[Old Man Miller (Master)] you know now that you mention it

[Old Man Miller (Master)] none of them had any scars or broken limbs or anything

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I just guessed they were heading to the church because they said that

[Old Man Miller (Master)] but maybe they were heading somewhere else

[Shurkural (TMO)] Any other groups headed through here lately?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] through here?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] everyone stops at Old Man Miller's tavern

[Miranda (JohnAA)] passing by

[Miranda (JohnAA)] of course

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I am the only palce to stay in Red Fern Lake

[Old Man Miller (Master)] unless you are in Billstone that is

[Indigo (Lisa)] And your ale is good!

[Old Man Miller (Master)] but if you are on the road south

[Old Man Miller (Master)] thank you Indigo!

[Old Man Miller (Master)] here have another

[Indigo (Lisa)] Thank you!

Indigo (Lisa) feeling the ale go to his head a little

[Old Man Miller (Master)] ummm your dwarf friend, does he need some rocks or what does he eat?

[Miranda (JohnAA)] Watch yourself SIR

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] I am enjoying the stores just find

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] I had a big lunch

[Old Man Miller (Master)] OH you can talk

[Old Man Miller (Master)] wow

[Old Man Miller (Master)] huh

[Old Man Miller (Master)] so ummmm

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (LOL)

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] forgot what you call it

[Old Man Miller (Master)] what is it like to be a dwarf?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] does the sun hurt you?

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] refreshing

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] comfortable

Shurkural (TMO) shakes her head. "No," she stage whispers to him. "Leatherus knows ventriloquism. If you watch him carefully you can see his lips move."

Old Man Miller (Master) stares at Shur

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] kind of like being human, so I am told

Old Man Miller (Master) stares at Letherus

[Old Man Miller (Master)] watching closely

Leatherus (Eric W) Laughs "indeed watch the best is when i do it drinking" Takes a swig

[Old Man Miller (Master)] "So you like rocks for dinner?"

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] No

[Leatherus (Eric W)] TA DA!

Shurkural (TMO) claps.

[Leatherus (Eric W)] /bows slgihtly

Old Man Miller (Master) jaw drops

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] That is silly, and you should tell everyone

[Old Man Miller (Master)] Indigo you have some amazing friends

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I would almost think he is real

[Indigo (Lisa)] He is real!

Shurkural (TMO) has an amazing idea!

QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA) tumbles out of his chair

[QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA)] QuiFon Ruminel: Tumbling check: (d20) [1d20=7] 7 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 9!!

Shurkural (TMO) leans over to whoever is sitting next to her. "Think Miller would go for it if QuiFon said he only ate gemstones?"

QuiFon Ruminel (JohnAA) walks to table

[Miranda (JohnAA)] he gets that alot

[Miranda (JohnAA)] I think he is getting tired of it

[Miranda (JohnAA)] QuiFon Ruminel moved 8'04".

[Master] Time of Day: 05:23 PM. Day 2 Trall ___ de, Man {Early Spring} 2nd, 343 SKR.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] so do you want rooms for the night Indigo?

[JohnAA] enjoy all

[Indigo (Lisa)] (goodnight John)

Shurkural (TMO) leans forward and briefly touches Miller on the arm. "Got anything good on the fire tonight?"

[JohnAA] ttfn

[Shurkural (TMO)] (good night, John!)

Old Man Miller (Master) warm smiles

JohnAA has left the game on Fri Jan 10 22:11:46 EST 2014

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I have possum in the stew tonight, real meat this time

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Good night john.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] lucky you came

[Indigo (Lisa)] That sound really good. Could we get two rooms?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] did Indigo ever tell you about the time he brought me a HUGE pig!

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I was able to eat for months on that

[Shurkural (TMO)] Sounds great. When we're done settling up the rooms, I'd like a bowl, please.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Kristelle was the one that hunted it.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] Oh I could not charge Indigo for a room

Old Man Miller (Master) tight smile

[Indigo (Lisa)] You don't have to charge me, but I will leave you something in the morning.

[Indigo (Lisa)] How is that?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] that is very nice of you

[Indigo (Lisa)] So it is quiet if all you have seen is a werewolf and the Brothers going south and pilgrims going to Skull Church.

[Indigo (Lisa)] It is good we stopped by then!

[Old Man Miller (Master)] well there is that lizard man uprising that everyone is talking about

[Indigo (Lisa)] Who are they uprising against?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I heard they are all out searching for the Shielf of Halav

[Old Man Miller (Master)] some mythological king of theirs

[Old Man Miller (Master)] it must be some big story

[Old Man Miller (Master)] (shield)

[Indigo (Lisa)] Where were they going?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] south into the swamps

[Old Man Miller (Master)] isn't that where all the lizard men go?

[Indigo (Lisa)] I didn't think the lizardmen cared much about anything except shells.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Hmmmm

[Old Man Miller (Master)] oh I guess this shield thing was one of their ancient King's shields or something

[Old Man Miller (Master)] that one of the old Kings in the Golden Age took from them

[Old Man Miller (Master)] (bows)

[Indigo (Lisa)] and the lizard men came in your tavern and told you. You speak lizard?

[Shurkural (TMO)] (who wants to go back for the spear?)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (sigh)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (lol)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (There it is! I knew it'd be there sooner or later)

[Old Man Miller (Master)] oh no

[Old Man Miller (Master)] it was a group of fighters that came up

[Old Man Miller (Master)] they were all bloody

[Old Man Miller (Master)] had a fight with a bunch of the lizard folk

[Indigo (Lisa)] because they all want the lizard shield?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I guess

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Did these fighter wear any standard? Who's men were they?

[Leatherus (Eric W)]

[Leatherus (Eric W)]

[Leatherus (Eric W)] d

[Old Man Miller (Master)] they were telling me that the swamps are full of lizard men who are all worked up saying that the day of reckoning is nigh

[Leatherus (Eric W)] man lag is sick no my end

[Old Man Miller (Master)] the world will change

[Leatherus (Eric W)] sorry

[Old Man Miller (Master)] oh I do not know if they were anyone's sworm men

[Old Man Miller (Master)] they were just a bunch of roughnecks

[Old Man Miller (Master)] but you know I have nothing against anyone

[Old Man Miller (Master)] nods at Qui for example

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I welcome all kinds here

[Leatherus (Eric W)] well my puppet wont hurt anyone

Leatherus (Eric W) winks at qui

[Indigo (Lisa)] I can't imagine lizardmen taking over much of anything.

Indigo (Lisa) thinks hard "it is strange though."

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I heard from an old woman that they think that if they can recover the shield from their old king that that will mean it is time to swarm over the humans and take back the swamps

[Indigo (Lisa)] It must be a magic shield

[Old Man Miller (Master)] it can't be real

[Old Man Miller (Master)] that can't be, it is just a legen

[Old Man Miller (Master)] legend

[Old Man Miller (Master)] a story about things that don't really exist, like dwarves

[Old Man Miller (Master)] or nice dragons

[Indigo (Lisa)] But dwarves do exist and I am sure that there is a nice dragon somewhere.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] have you ever met one?

[Indigo (Lisa)] Yes!

[Shurkural (TMO)] No.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Well not a nice one, but a couple of dragons.

[Leatherus (Eric W)] i hope to some day

[Indigo (Lisa)] Did you mean a nice one?

[Indigo (Lisa)] I met a dragon that didn't want to kill us.

[Indigo (Lisa)] He just wanted us to pay to go down the river.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] he was an innkeeper?

[Indigo (Lisa)] No! He lived in the river.

[Indigo (Lisa)] He was blue.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I would be sad if I was in teh river too

[Old Man Miller (Master)] you meet some interesting people Indigo!

[Indigo (Lisa)] I don't think dragons can be innkeepers.

[Indigo (Lisa)] So when the fighters left did they go back to kill more lizardmen?

Indigo (Lisa) wonders if there are any lizardwomen. He always seems to run into lizardmen.

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I am not sure where they went

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I know they were going north from the south

Indigo (Lisa) looks up at Miller shyly "Is supper ready soon?"

[Old Man Miller (Master)] OH Yes

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I just have to go get the rocks

[Shurkural (TMO)] Are we going to have to worry about wathing for lizardman raids out here while we're hunting, or are they sticking to the swamps for now, sugar?

[Old Man Miller (Master)] I will be right back

[Master] Old Man Miller moved 12'08".

[Shurkural (TMO)] *watching

Indigo (Lisa) says in low voice "That's sort of odd that there are two missing shields"

Leatherus (Eric W) chuckles "strange indeed"

[Indigo (Lisa)] Maybe we could find both of them!

[Master] (I love Indigo)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] That would be a great quest indeed

[Master] Time of Day: 06:00 PM. Day 2 Trall ___ de, Man {Early Spring} 2nd, 343 SKR.

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (ditto)

[Indigo (Lisa)] :)

[Indigo (Lisa)] But we should work on getting the Queen's first.

[Indigo (Lisa)] I don't want to go into the swamps and get too far away from where we are supposed to be.

[Shurkural (TMO)] (I wanted to say something, but it wasn't in character.)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] I agree Indigo. The queen's first. Maybe the 2nd is near that one?

[Master] go for it

[Shurkural (TMO)] (

[Shurkural (TMO)] (nah, it was something Elan-like, about the law of conservation of narrative detail)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (I read TVTropes too much)

[Master] smile

[Master] do Eric and Lisa get the Elan comment?

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Not a bit

[Indigo (Lisa)] (no)

[Master] Order of the Stick

[Master] Elan is a bard

[Master] he is constantly talking about how the adventure has to fit the narative story arc

[Master] that NOW is the time for a dramatic song, etc

[Master] and we have to let the bad guy get away for the narative effect of later on in the story

[Master] etc

[Master] is a great web comic

[Leatherus (Eric W)] huh i'll have to check it out

[Shurkural (TMO)] (it's been going a long time, so you'll have quite the archive binge time)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (ahh)

[Master] nah is only 900 something

[Shurkural (TMO)] (another really good D&D-esque one is Goblins)

[Master] 936

[Master] so anything else you want to ask Old Man Miller?

[Master] or just talk among your selves for the evening?

[Shurkural (TMO)] (he didn't answer Shur's question)

[Master] till you leave in the morning

[Master] grins

[Master] which one?

[Master] he did not answer several

[Leatherus (Eric W)] lol

[Shurkural (TMO)] (are the lizardmen staying in the swamp, or are they raiding out onto dry land?)

[Master] he would not know

[Master] but they would not be this far north

[Master] for the most part

[Master] unless there is a raiding party

[Shurkural (TMO)] (no, but it would tell me where *they( think their shield is)

[Master] you will have to ask others on your trip south along the roads

[Indigo (Lisa)] (i'm good on my end)

[Master] sleeping tonight here at Red Fern Lake

[Master] then you can make it to Billstone tomorrow part way through the day

[Shurkural (TMO)] (ok)

[Master] and stop at some small village south of there

[Master] sorry west of there

[Leatherus (Eric W)] i'm good to go

[Master] ok so clicking off the night

[Master] if no other questions

[Master] heading out ont the roads

[Shurkural (TMO)] (I'm good.)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (ok)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] good

[Master] Time of Day: 08:00 AM. Day 3 Lad ___ de, Man {Early Spring} 3rd, 343 SKR.

[Master] You are here #14 moved 2'03".

[Master] Time of Day: 11:26 AM. Day 3 Lad ___ de, Man {Early Spring} 3rd, 343 SKR.

[Master] you bring the wagon into the town of billstone shortly before noon on the second day of your trip

[Indigo (Lisa)] (it is weird just to be able to arrive at places)

[Master] this is the place where Tristan had a confrontation with a priest for a Suomi church when you were traveling last year through here

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (awww memories)

[Master] smile

[Shurkural (TMO)] (what? No encounter rolls?)

[Master] here is the last crossroads

[Shurkural (TMO)] (is in shock)

[Master] one road heads south into the swamps

[Master] the other goes west towards the Quelkin Estates

[Indigo (Lisa)] (Is this the last town we will see in a while?)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (what say we head to that mysterious Long Live the King marker on our map? ;) )

[Master] last town you stayed in last time you traveled this road

[Master] grins

[Leatherus (Eric W)] LOL

[Shurkural (TMO)] (*whisltles innocently)

Indigo (Lisa) sends Jilly off to buy a bit more food to put in the wagon

[Shurkural (TMO)] (brb - have to do something really quick. decide without me)

[Master] You are here #14 moved 1'06".

Indigo (Lisa) looks up at Leatherus, "think we should stop or keep moving?"

[Master] chuckle I just measured distance on the KLooge map, Oh they are only 16 feet away from finishing@!

[Indigo (Lisa)] (huh?)

[Master] grabbed the wrong map with measuring tool to see how far you move in a day

[Indigo (Lisa)] I don't know anyone here so I don't think we will hear much more news than we heard from Miller yesterday.

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Well i've never said no to a warm bed friend. Especially when it is the last one we may see for awhile. But i'm also no stranger to sleeping in the open. If there are others looking for shields then we should move quickly

[Master] (you are only a third of yoru travel time into the day so you can go much further today)

[Indigo (Lisa)] That is true.

[Indigo (Lisa)] But I bet no one else has the talking scrolls that we did.

[Leatherus (Eric W)] I would keep moving

[Indigo (Lisa)] Yes, Jilly will load up some more food and we will be off.

Indigo (Lisa) watches Jilly hoping she got something good.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (and off we go then)

[Master] You are here #14 moved 7'03".

[Master] Jilly moved 16'10".

[Shurkural (TMO)] (back)

[Master] everyone is ok with the new map?

[Shurkural (TMO)] (no gray)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (yes)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (all good)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] good

[Master] Time of Day: 04:56 PM. Day 3 Lad ___ de, Man {Early Spring} 3rd, 343 SKR.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (do we know what town this is?)

[Master] nope

[Master] you passed through here in the middle of the day without stopping the last time you were on this road

[Shurkural (TMO)] Townville!

[Master] but now it is late in the afternoon

[Master] you are looking for a place to stop

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (is there an inn?)

[Master] it is here or in the open on your own

[Master] the buildings you see do not appear to include an inn

[Master] on your right coming into town is a home and the left is a larger home

[Master] beyond that you would have to speak with people etc

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Ok

[Shurkural (TMO)] (Oh, woe! If only we had someone who wasn't cripplingly shy and actually *liked* to talk to people with our party!)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] LOL

[Indigo (Lisa)] (lol)

[Shurkural (TMO)] (who is the Voice for this group? By default I think it would be Indigo, unless he doesn't want to or has a reason not to)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (the streets are all empty?)

[Master] for the most part yes

[Master] there are a few children who disapear quickly at the sight of your group coming into town

[Leatherus (Eric W)] It appears you frighten them Indigo

Leatherus (Eric W) smirks

[Indigo (Lisa)] Me? I get mistaken for being a child myself.

[Shurkural (TMO)] Maybe they think we kidnap children, honey.

[Indigo (Lisa)] I don't see an inn or a shop. Maybe we should knock on that big house and ask if there is a place to get supper and a room.

Indigo (Lisa) laughs

Indigo (Lisa) waves to the group, "let's try this one"

Indigo (Lisa) goes to the big house and knocks on the door

[Master] (grins, want to confound the players? throw them into the middle of civilization)

Leatherus (Eric W) follows

[Master] Indigo moved 53'10".

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Ahhh what do i do???

[Indigo (Lisa)] (yes we don't know what to do with ourselves. this is frightening)

[man (Master)] opens door slightly

[man (Master)] Hello?

[Shurkural (TMO)] (What do I kill?!? WHAT DO I KILL!?!)

[Indigo (Lisa)] Good evening!

man (Master) blinks

[man (Master)] you are a Queen's Man?

[man (Master)] or did you steal that?

[Indigo (Lisa)] Well almost evening.

[Shurkural (TMO)] (ohgodohgodohgod... gotta kill something. too many bleedy things. can't kill them, not monsters.)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (LOL)

[Indigo (Lisa)] I did not steal it!

[man (Master)] ok

[man (Master)] sorry Sir

Shurkural (TMO) smiles friendly-like off to the side.

[man (Master)] what can I help with Sir

[Indigo (Lisa)] I am a Knight of Drillian and serve our Queen.

Indigo (Lisa) puffs out his chest a bit

[man (Master)] yes sir

[Indigo (Lisa)] We are looking for an Inn to get some supper and a room for the night.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Can you open the door so we can talk properly?

[man (Master)] I am sorry Sir, there is no Inn here in inkling

[Indigo (Lisa)] Inkling?

[man (Master)] yes Sir

[man (Master)] that is the name of this town sir

[man (Master)] we are a small place

[man (Master)] we gather flowers

[man (Master)] raise some other goods

[man (Master)] we provide a fine ink to scribes in the area

Leatherus (Eric W) raises an eyebrow "and now one can put up space in their home for one of the queens men?

[man (Master)] well I suppose

[man (Master)] but

[man (Master)] I could not take all of you

[man (Master)] there is not'

[man (Master)] maybe smith can take some?

[man (Master)] he has a stable at least

[Shurkural (TMO)] I bet Marquessa Branwyn would want to know about the ink from here, if it's so good. A nearby source of good ink has gotta be something she'd like to know about.

[man (Master)] nods yes yes of course

[man (Master)] your Marquessa would like our ink

[man (Master)] who is she?

Indigo (Lisa) smiles at Shurkural "I think so too"

[Indigo (Lisa)] A friend of ours. She likes to write, So does Miranda who is off a ways at the moment.

[man (Master)] I do not write myself

[man (Master)] I understand many learned people do

[man (Master)] I find that I have little time for the more frivolous things in life

Indigo (Lisa) looks up at the man/woman at the door "Are you scared of us? You don't have to be."

man (Master) coughts

[man (Master)] I am sorry

[Indigo (Lisa)] (indigo has no powers of observation at all)

[man (Master)] it is just that we do nto get many visitors here

[man (Master)] several caravans travel through

[man (Master)] sometimes as many as two a day

[Indigo (Lisa)] Gypsies?

[man (Master)] I guess

[man (Master)] are they safe?

[Indigo (Lisa)] That's a lot of gypsies, but they are the only people I can think of that use caravans.

[Indigo (Lisa)] They don't stop and talk to anyone?

[man (Master)] oh there are several groups of people who travel on the roads

[man (Master)] in the srping there are faarmers who bring food and crops to market

[man (Master)] flowers for dyes

[man (Master)] many things

[Indigo (Lisa)] What is your name, good Sir/Madam?

[man (Master)] I am Olren

[Indigo (Lisa)] Olren, can you put some of us up for the night? We would pay you for the trouble of course.

[Indigo (Lisa)] And you said he could visit this Smith gentleman who might be obliging?

[Orlen (Master)] I am not sure

[Orlen (Master)] I suppose I could have you use the front room

[Orlen (Master)] SMith has a stable

[Orlen (Master)] he would have warm straw for you

[Indigo (Lisa)] Is there a church in town? They sometimes put up visitors.

[Orlen (Master)] no we are not rich enough to have a church

[Indigo (Lisa)] Well we do need to put up the horses. Maybe we should visit with Smith and perhaps we may come back and speak to you again. Where does this Smith live?

[Orlen (Master)] two doors down

Leatherus (Eric W) smiles "I believe he is at that forge Indigo"

[Indigo (Lisa)] That makes sense. I did not see that.

[Indigo (Lisa)] :)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] That is why we are a team

[Indigo (Lisa)] We will be off to visit the smith then. Thank you Olren.

[Leatherus (Eric W)] ( I need to log in a few. I have a lot to do in the morning)

Indigo (Lisa) looks at Leatherus "maybe we should see if we can all sleep in the stables. Instead of split up.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (oops - ok)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (you are in next week?)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] That is a good plan. We do not know these people or if they are loyal to the queen

[Smith (Master)] (do you want to pause here then?)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (I'm pretty sure)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] (this works for me)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (me too)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (this town is spooky)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] I'm pretty sure i will be here. I will let you know early next week. I plan on doing some more posting if anyone else is....

[Lisa] how can we resist?

[Leatherus (Eric W)] lol

[Smith (Master)] grins

[Leatherus (Eric W)] thanks a lot for the game tonight

[Shurkural (TMO)] it was fun!

[Leatherus (Eric W)] fun as usual

[Lisa] indeed!

[Leatherus (Eric W)] Good night everyone

[Shurkural (TMO)] are we going to RP in this town on the site?

[Leatherus (Eric W)] I'm down for it

[Smith (Master)] sure

[Smith (Master)] I will follow what you do

[Lisa] we can roleplay anywhere :)

[Shurkural (TMO)] we'll need a few townie interactions, probably

[Leatherus (Eric W)] yea! god bless teh internet

[Shurkural (TMO)] at least the Smith, to get space to sleep

[Lisa] and the brains of the group will be available to gently suggest that there might only be one shield

[Leatherus (Eric W)] lol

[Smith (Master)] chuckles

[Shurkural (TMO)] we have brains?

[Lisa] give complicated information to a bunch of fighters!

[Lisa] Leatherus does okay - he is smartest of us three :)

[Leatherus (Eric W)] lol i can read!

[Shurkural (TMO)] I still want to smack that lady who narrated the snake and rabbit note. North, West, left. *headdesk*

[Lisa] but rocket scientists we are not

[Smith (Master)] grins

[Lisa] lol

[Leatherus (Eric W)] good night everyone. See you on the boards

[Lisa] goodnight!

[Shurkural (TMO)] g'night

Lisa has left the game on Fri Jan 10 23:36:48 EST 2014

[Shurkural (TMO)] I was going to say that Shur isn't that dumb, but then I checked

[Smith (Master)] chuckels

[Shurkural (TMO)] I'll have to add that to my character notes

[Shurkural (TMO)] she's not *dumb*, per se. But she's no brain.

Eric W has left the game on Fri Jan 10 23:38:36 EST 2014

[Shurkural (TMO)] she's definitely no good with puzzles

[Smith (Master)] cannot be good at everything

[Shurkural (TMO)] nope. fortunately I haven't player her smarts much yet. I'll just have to remember not to.

TMO has left the game on Fri Jan 10 23:42:24 EST 2014
