Devin has joined the game on Fri May 03 19:19:27 EDT 2013

Devin has received the map main chapel area.

[Master] so no Bill tonight

[Master] TMO will be very late if in at all

[Devin] "awwwww", and "Tell me something I don't know" in that order.

[Master] wry grin

[Master] Eric is another new canidate that logged in for the first time last week

[Devin] I do believe he is coming in as "most useful non-existant character" at this point.

[Master] it is actually fairly amusing

[Master] if you do find the Princess

[Master] Androp and Ilero are the only two who know what she looks like

[Master] other than Branwyn

[Master] well Indigo but if you have Bran you have Indigo

[Devin] *nods*

[Devin] So, there's a chance that she's been skillfully introduced to one or more of us and we had no idea at this point.

[Master] that is possible also

[Devin] which would be hilarious.

[Devin] I have a friend who is starting up a campaign 2 weeks from Sunday, and I was wondering if you had any words of wisdom for her, specifically on making people go where you want. She has trouble with that. We tend to go left when she hints with a 2x4 swung by an ogre that we should be going right.

[Master] tell her to email me

[Master] or grab me in IM

[Master] will be glad to help

[Master] and of course she can always log in here to see how things go

[Devin] I'll ask if she'd like to. it only just occurred to me to ask.

[Devin] Ooohhh... I like that thought. *grabs his phone to text her*

[Devin] so, how've you been?

[Master] work has not been so fun

[Devin] /sympathy

[Master] being a babysitter rather than a supervisor

[Master] because they are just idiots

[Devin] personally, I seem to have grown feathers, and lost my head lately.

[Master] but overall life is good

[Devin] I got home at 6:30 last night. I was asleep by 7:30

[Master] over on Cartographers Guild there is a fun new project for our campaign

[Devin] I rarely go to bed before midnight.

[Master] sleep is good

[Devin] is that the whole email based game TMO was talking about?

[Master] no

[Master] that is Lords

[Devin] ah, yes.

[Master] Cartographers Guild is a site for maps

[Master] and artists

[Master] there is a comunity project there for something I will be using during the next Era

[Devin] sweet.

[Devin] Actually, I think I remember seeing some of TMO's maps before.

[Master] yeap that is where he found us from

[Devin] One, specifically, stands out. A map of a world as seen through a fly's eye.

[Master] so what is this woman's name so I know when she contacts me?

[Devin] Christina

[Devin] Although the only IM I know she uses is Skype.

[Master] ok

[Master] I have an account there

[Devin] I'm poking her to see if she'd like to come watch the game tonight.

[Master] never use it because I did not have a cam

[Master] I do have one now

[Devin] We don't use it for cam as much as voice.

[Master] ahh

[Master] my cam has a mic built in

[Devin] Its easier to colaborate in things like Minecraft and Starcraft if we can talk.

[Master] I think

[Master] and I get that

[Devin] yeah, I use a webcam. It was something I bought for about 0, and its the best mic I've ever had.

[Master] dollar signs are part of the program,

[Master] $ex

[Master] etc

[Master] that was dollar sign Dex

[Devin] fine... fine... #40

[Master] Frtiz has always wanted us to use voice here

[Devin] That's a dollar sign.

[Devin] voice would make things go a lot faster.

[Master] I continue to resist because I like the chat logs

[Devin] I also like the chat logs, but I have a program I can use to record skype conversations too.

[Master] I tried having a transcript done

[Master] but it was not accurate at all

[Master] and the only way to be more accurate was to pay a bunch of money to test out new ideas

[Devin] yeah, I understand that.

[Master] one thing we used to do was to take these chat logs

[Devin] This also gives anyone who has to go and attend to a cat, dog, or god forbid a child, a chance to catch up.

[Master] and then edit them to take out the program stuff

[Master] and only have actual game play

[Master] plus we tried once or twice to turn them into paragraph form for stories

[Master] The Bigger They Are was that story arc that I did

[Devin] need to find a writer who'll translate to a paragraph type story while the game is running.

[Devin] "And Toybox made an ass of himself... again."

[Devin] it wouldn't be that hard. :P

[Master] chuckles

[Master] I actually got a test version of a program that does automatic summaries of documents

[Master] did not work out so well

[Devin] I think the sheer ADHD method of chatting on here would make that difficult.

[Master] and by the way are you happy with how your character is set up?

[Devin] mostly. We still need to do spells, and a follower.

[Devin] Meatshield with Storage of some sort, preferably.

[Master] and your proficiencies, et

[Devin] ah, true. I thought I had those mapped out. I'll have to look.

[Devin] I have a coupld of note files on the guy.

[Master] I am anticipating that we will be bringing him in in about two sessions

[Master] either the 17th or 18th of may

[Devin] 17th/18th?

[Devin] And I am free the 18th, but not the 19th, so that works.

[Master] good

[Devin] My friend's birthday is the 18th, but she's doing dinner the 16th, and I'm going to Maker Faire with her on the 19th.

[Devin] So it worked out well.

[Devin] I do work the 17th though.

[Devin] then again, I worked today too.

[Master] that stinks

[Master] then it should be fine

[Devin] usually I don't get home at 4. Somehow you haven't seen evidence of that yet though.

Lisa has joined the game on Fri May 03 19:54:35 EDT 2013

Lisa is receiving the map main chapel area...

Lisa has received the map main chapel area.

[Devin] Hello Lisa!

[Master] ok

[Lisa] Hello - sorry I'm late

[Lisa] we are in fire central

[Devin] No worries, its just you, me, and Bob so far.

[Devin] Eww... you're down in the fires north of LA?

[Master] brb

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Lisa] no that is far enough away

[Lisa] but another started about 12-15 miles from my house

[Devin] that's good.

[Devin] hrmmm....

[Lisa] smells like smoke and makes freeways a nightmare

[Lisa] they shut down a freeway etc.

[Devin] I made my office smell like smoke today if it helps.

[Devin] electrical short while I was testing something.

[Devin] it was fun!

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Lisa] lol

[Devin] startled the crap out of Susan though.

[Lisa] lucky you didn't set off the building sprinklers or anything

[Master] I am sure everyone had fun with that!

[Devin] Oh, it was just a short in the power strip I was using. Nothing major.

[Devin] But it still made the room smell like smoke.

[Devin] and the power strip turn black.

[Master] that is one way to tell that the fuse tripped

[Devin] Actually, the best part.... the fuse didn't trip.

[Lisa] and that it's time to buy a new power strip?

[Master] LOL

[Master] LOL

[Devin] Oh, the power strip is in the recycle bin now.

[Devin] it was one of the old ones anyway.

[Devin] And it was plugged into another.

[Devin] I was being careful.

[Devin] ish

[Master] and if the building did not burn down

[Master] then you were careful enough

[Devin] that would've been BAD.

[Devin] We are due to ship our major product... Monday?

[Master] can you say what it is yet?

[Devin] I never will be allowed.

[Master] ok

[Devin] but lets say its not cheap.

[Devin] Billion dollar project.

[Devin] and yes, that is a B.

[Lisa] too bad you don't work on commission

[Master] OH so you work for the city of Miami paying off the Marlins!

[Master] grins

[Devin] exactly, but not even close.

[Lisa] any word from marco or fritz?

[Master] none

[Master] thought Fritz would be in

[Master] and speaking of crazy outlet stuff?

[Devin] Out of curiosity, approximately how many active players are there on this thing?

[Master] my wife has her laptop plugged directly into the wall

[Devin] why is that crazy?

[Master] she had to UNPLUG the surge protector that is EMPTY to do so

[Devin] *snrk*

[Master] and active players Dev?

[Devin] Your wife is special.

[Lisa] lol

[Master] Lisa is our most consistent

[Devin] as are we all at times.

[Devin] I have noticed that. high five, Lisa!

[Master] then TMO, Marco

[Master] Bill and Guy

[Lisa] I get a star for attendance

[Master] and you of course

[Devin] so, about 6 people.

[Lisa] Guy should be in more often hopefully when his character gets activated

[Master] when everyone logs in we can hit 7

[Devin] I know its an ever evolving list, but I was curious.

[Master] but we average 3-4 most times

[Master] most ever in for one night was 12

[Lisa] and marco when his character is doing things

[Master] and so in any case

[Devin] 12 would've been a little crazy.

[Lisa] John is lost cause now?

[Master] what did you want to try and accomplish before dinner?

[Master] I do not know

[Lisa] dinner?

[Master] John seems to not have access to a laptop right now, the kids have taken them over

[Lisa] Rando was supposed to take us to belvedere at lunch or after

[Master] yes

[Lisa] kids have no rights - take laptop away from them

[Devin] Yeah, make them use a pencil and paper, and those books... what'd they call them... encyclodictionaries or something?

[Lisa] lol

[Master] grins

[Devin] I do assume that if we're going to get a tour, there's at least a chance we'll be meeting the queen. It might be a good time to tell her what we think is up.

[Devin] I dunno if you've met her yet.

[Lisa] I am sad though - we actually get to a point where we might see who we have been looking for thes past months and most are not here

[Lisa] Branwyn has never met the Queen

[Devin] um.... "sucks to be them" seems to figure in here?

[Lisa] she has met princess Anastacia

[Master] that is a key issue

[Lisa] pretty much

[Devin] Anastacia? really?

[Master] so at Lunch?

[Devin] BACON!

[Lisa] she taught Indigo his short sword mastery

[Devin] *crunch munch munch munch*

[Lisa] she is not a typical fluffy princess

[Devin] I am back at the keyboard.

[Devin] no, I was just commenting on the name, not the NPC.

Devin is receiving the map Tower 5...

Devin has received the map Tower 5.

Lisa is receiving the map Temporary Guest rooms...

Lisa has received the map Temporary Guest rooms.

Devin is receiving the map Temporary Guest rooms...

[Master] it is sad that I have to use the search function to find out what map each person is on

Devin has received the map Temporary Guest rooms.

[Devin] You're the one that lets us split up. :P

[Master] so everyone is gathered in the dining room there

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (well quit splitting up the party then!)

[Master] chuckles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (lol)

[Devin] I am back at the keyboard.

[Grink (Devin)] (I'm gonna have to find a new food of choice for the new character.)

[Master] Grink moved 8'02".

[Master] Jerome - servant moved 7'03".

[Master (to GM only)] Anastacia Eustace moved 6'09".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we'll see how many food choices we get after we get out of civilization again)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (may be frogs or alligators)

[Grink (Devin)] (It could be mushrooms... Although I personally hate the things)

[Jerome - servant (Master)] and your highness, this is where our current guests are

[Master] Jerome - servant moved 6'04".

[Master (to GM only)] Anastacia Eustace moved 6'11".

[Master] Devin you have your pointer on I think

[Grink (Devin)] (WAIT... PRINCESS?)

[Master] click the map and hit P

Indigo (Lisa) see the Princess and gasps trying to hide his arm under the table

[Master] Toybin of Castling moved 5'02".

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Your Highness!

[Grink (Devin)] DID THAT HELP?

[Grink (Devin)] sorry, caps

[Indigo (Lisa)] (princess anastascia)

[Master] Toybin of Castling moved 4'07".

[Master] Anastacia Eustace moved 5'04".

[Indigo (Lisa)] Indigo moved 0'11".

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Hello Toybin, How are you! It is a surprise to see you here

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] And Branwyn

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] how are you

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Hello! We've definitely been better.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] OH? are they treating you well here? I hear that Count Drake is supposed to provide excellet service

[Grink (Devin)] "So... um... this is THE princess, I take it?"

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] We came announced your Highness

Toybin of Castling (Master) looks at Grink

Grink (Devin) looks at Toybin

[Grink (Devin)] "What? I've never met her before."

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] This is Princess Anastacia Eustace, the oldest daughter of the Queen

Grink (Devin) stands and bows

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] One of the finest swordsmen... women... I have ever seen

[Grink (Devin)] "I do appologize, princess. I'm just getting aquainted with the situation."

Anastacia Eustace (Master) smiles broadly

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I am not here in official capacity yet

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] that comes this evening

[Grink (Devin)] "oh, well, in that case..."

Grink (Devin) sits back down quickly

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Actually we are very surprised to see you here. The Queen has been planning on visiting Castle Drake?

Anastacia Eustace (Master) glances back at Indigo

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] We have been planning the royal tour yes

Indigo (Lisa) waves with his good hand and looks down at his food

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] we did not announce it to anyone but with the naming ceremony coming up

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] we wanted to visit all of the important Estates

Anastacia Eustace (Master) raised eyebrow

Indigo (Lisa) sinks a little lower in his chair

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Did someone cut out Indigo's tongue? I do not think I have ever seen him go this long without speaking

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] How is my master swordsman doing?

Indigo (Lisa) reddens and looks up shamefully, "Hello Princess"

[Master] Time of Day: 12:23 PM. Day 5 Be ___ de, Ze {Mid Summer} 5th, 342 SKR.

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks at Branwyn and Toybin

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Indigo's been injured.

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks over at Jerome, Please bring us some more wine

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks at the guards, and please ensure that the passage ways are clear for the baggage handlers

[Trun - guard (Master)] startles

Indigo (Lisa) looks pleadingly at Branwyn to stop talking

Rando (Master) opens mouth, then shuts and exits

[Master] Rando moved 13'01".

[Master] Trun - guard moved 20'09".

[Master] Jerome - servant moved 13'10".

[Master] Servant #3 moved 23'00".

Rando (Master) looks aroudn the room

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks aroudn the room

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] WOW the same spelling mistake both times!

[Indigo (Lisa)] (I was impressed)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] so Toybin I take it we can trust everyone here?

[Grink (Devin)] "Oh, c'mon, Indigo. You don't think she'd figure it out?"

[Indigo (Lisa)] Shhhh

Toybin of Castling (Master) looks at Branwyn, Yes your Highness, we can speak freely

[Grink (Devin)] (Hehehe... a thought. Indigo should have to take the Ambidexterity feat (if it exists in 2.mine) to get his swordsmanship back. :P)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] so Indigo tell me what you are hiding so we can move on

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] (I think he has it, but his arm will heal and go back to normal in time)

[Indigo (Lisa)] My arn got hurt.

Fritz has joined the game on Fri May 03 20:30:26 EDT 2013

Fritz is receiving the map Temporary Guest rooms...

[Grink (Devin)] (Oh, right, broken, not lost a hand. Sorry, got mixed up)

[Indigo (Lisa)] I wasn't ... wasn't supposed to be doing what I was doing.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] so you fell from a ladder or something?

[Indigo (Lisa)] It's all my fault and I can't fight like I should for a while.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] (hey Fritz)

Indigo (Lisa) shakes his head and looks down

[Fritz] Ola amigos

[Fritz] and amigas

[Indigo (Lisa)] (hi fritz)

[Fritz] One question.

[Fritz] Who is Anastacia?

[Indigo (Lisa)] I was ... breaking into someone's house and I set off a trap and we got caught.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Your Higness, let us say that Indigo had a brief moment where his tendency to be overly curious got the better of him

[Grink (Devin)] (You know that princess we've been chasing?)

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] and it was the wrong time adn place

[Grink (Devin)] (THAT is Anastacia)

[Fritz] That's what I thought

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] (this is not her)

[Indigo (Lisa)] They wanted to cut may hand off but Branwyn and Toybin stopped them and they broke my arm.

[Grink (Devin)] (oh... um... nevermind)

Indigo (Lisa) looks down shamefully

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] (this is the daughter of the Queen, this is not the princess you are looking for, waves his hand in your face)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Anastacia, it was my fault.

[Grink (Devin)] (lemme guess. "The princess is in yet another castle"?)

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Your Higness it was not either Indigo or Branwyn's fault

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We thought there might be some clues in there and I told them tret could go in.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (they)

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] They were both trying overly hard to find the Queen Presumptive

Anastacia Eustace (Master) raised eyebrow

[Grink (Devin)] I still blame the sherif.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] and you let them just traipse on in?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I can see why you do not think it is their fault

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] for a Knight you break into a lot of houses Toybin

Anastacia Eustace (Master) frowns

[Indigo (Lisa)] But a fighter with a broken arm in front of his master? It is horrible. And I didn't even hurt it in battle.

Toybin of Castling (Master) straightens up

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] looks startled suddenly and laughs

[Fritz (to Master only)] ok what is the name of the missing princess? Which princess is this? ARe we in the belvedere? Oh long does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] WAIT a mingut

[Indigo (Lisa)] I've let you down. It's not Sir Toybin's fault.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] (just a sec Fritz will catch everyone up in a meomtn)(

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] WAIT

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] ME?!?!

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] YOU are the one who broke into that cabin

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] YOU are the one who broke into the blacksmith's shop

Indigo (Lisa) stares at Toybin

[Grink (Devin)] (oh, good god... is Toybin FLIRTING?)

Indigo (Lisa) and Anastacia

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] YOU are the one who took those horses

[Indigo (Lisa)] (no he is not)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] /e laughs

[Fritz] For the rest of the party to know what I asked B.O.B. - ok what is the name of the missing princess? Which princess is this? ARe we in the belvedere? How long does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] LAUGHS

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] DAMN that was fun wasn't it Toybin?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Your Higness

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I think you are upsetting Indigo

[Indigo (Lisa)] (missing princess = Wilamina Moskin)

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks at Indigo

[Indigo (Lisa)] (this princess = daughter of queen of drillian)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Did you hurt your self in the service of searching for the Queen Presumptive?

[Grink (Devin)] (Ok, so I'm mixed up as a player, got'cha, but I still don't think Grink would've known the difference)

Indigo (Lisa) haltingly "Yes, I guess so"

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Did you break rules to try and accomplish your goals?

[Indigo (Lisa)] I didn't break in to steal stuff or anything

Indigo (Lisa) hangs head "Yes"

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Did you accomplish your goal?

[Indigo (Lisa)] Not really. the trap knocked me out and put a sleeping spell on me.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] do you plan on giving up looking for her?

Indigo (Lisa) shales his head "no! we're looking now!"

Anastacia Eustace (Master) raises eybrow and looks at the plate of food

[Indigo (Lisa)] We even have a new idea and everything!

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] then smiles

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] tell me Sir Indigo

[Indigo (Lisa)] Well after we eat

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] what is this new idea?

[Grink (Devin)] "I'm feeling a bit stumped, myself, but this is where we followed the clues."

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] and Break

[Master] before Indigo starts up again

[Master] to catch Fritz and Devin up

[Indigo (Lisa)] (lol)

[Master] This is Princess Anastacia Eustace, the daughter of Queen Eustace

[Lisa] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master] remember this is Drillian

[Grink (Devin)] I THINK I might've figured that out by now. Not entirely sure. Let me check.

[Master] only a QUeen can rule

[Master] but the inheritance goes through the male line

[Grink (Devin)] (I was joking by the way)

[Master] grins

[Master] so there is a new woman picked by each Queen to be her heir

[Master] Wilimina Mosskin is the Queen Presumptive

[Grink (Devin)] Is that actually done by someone in the world?

[Master] which is who yo uare looking for

[Grink (Devin)] That just seems a little odd.

[Master] chuckles you should read the history of Drillian

[Lisa] I am back at the keyboard.

[Grink (Devin)] I might have to do that.

[Master] see just what a bastard the last King was

[Grink (Devin)] Although, by the way you say that, I'm not sure I want to.

[Master] and the civil war he caused

[Master] killed ten wives in a handful of years

[Master] in any case

[Master] Anastacia cannot inherit

[Grink (Devin)] So... Henry the 8th, reborn?

[Master] and there is no son

[Master] hence the political intrigue about who shall be picked to be queen

[Master] and who that person will pick as consort

[Grink (Devin)] And why we think the count might be trying to marry the princess.

[Grink (Devin)] To become king defacto

[Master] nods

[Master] or the previous Count Vilmar

[Master] with two sons

[Master] that was the story arc Desperate Old Men

[Master] so Fritz any questions?

[Master] Devin?

[Master] Lisa?

[Grink (Devin)] I think I've caught most of the drift.

[Grink (Devin)] Rum anyone?

[Master] you would not know but you can catch from the snippets of conversation here that Anastacia and Toybin have been out on adventures togethr

[Indigo (Lisa)] (I'm good)

[Grink (Devin)] I figured there was SOME sort of history.

[Master] part of that was in the first story arc With Friends like these

[Master] and now back to Indigo

[Master] and ACTION

[Grink (Devin)] I was trying to figure out if they were flirting, or genuinely arguing...ish

[Grink (Devin)] I'm still not sure.

[Grink (Devin)] I'm not sure they are either.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (you would not be aware but Tiybin is desperately in love with wilamina and wil never have her as she is to be queen and unlikely to have toybin as a consort)

[Fritz] For the rest of the party to know what I asked B.O.B. - ok Are we in the belvedere? How long does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] (you are in teh guest dinning hall)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (we are in the dining room at lunch)

[Grink (Devin)] (you're right, I wouldn't be. but I am now! grink probably isn't though)

[Fritz] Ok....couple of other fast comments

[Master] sure

[Fritz] First I was having dinner with my wife at hooters so sorry for being late.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Well, Heckat and Ilero were talking to the guards and they said there was a belvedere outside the castle here. that's about the only place in this whol;e castle we haven't been to, so we have a guard that's supposed to take us there after lunch.

[Fritz] Second - Yes voice would be great and the game would be faster. There is a way to record everything voice and Klooge as a movie tha people could watch, so Bob is just being BOB in not switching.

[Grink (Devin)] Is that the one that someone was flirting with?

[Indigo (Lisa)] You know about the whole Wilamina hidden in the library at Vilmar thing and then the werewolves kidnapping her only to have her kidnapped from them too, right?

[Grink (Devin)] the guard, I mean.

[Fritz] Third if princess M- doesn't show up what would happen to Princess anastasia? Could she become queen?

[Master] no

[Grink (Devin)] I knew about her being kidnapped by warewolves. Someone told me that at some point.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (queen would pick someone else)

[Master] the third Drillian civil war was fought over that

[Fritz] Wherewolves?

[Grink (Devin)] Therewolves.

[Fritz] !!! Excellent!!!

[Fritz] good pickup Devin

[Grink (Devin)] /bow

[Master] the babe with the power

[Grink (Devin)] I guess it is Were, isn't it? or is it Ware?

[Fritz] So Bob would Anastasia have a chance to be the new queen?

[Master] no,

[Indigo (Lisa)] (no)

[Fritz] Only during tupperware parties?

[Master] the third Drillian civil war was fought over that

[Indigo (Lisa)] (deja vu)

[Master] grins

[Fritz] Oh shit...Sorry I thought it was the SECOND Drillian civil war

[Grink (Devin)] So, Anastacia can only be queen by conquering, not by right.

[Master] that was the one that established the Female Primogeniture line of sucession

[Grink (Devin)] And thus, the NEXT civil war.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (she is not likely to conquer her own mother)

[Master] and yes that was the key point

[Grink (Devin)] (I didn't say she was. just that that's how it would have to happen. :P)

[Fritz] But might makes right!!! Only it isn't primogeniture it is now secondogeniture

[Master] the speculation was that Mina was picked to be someone that everyone would agree on only because they all think they can manipulate her

[Grink (Devin)] (Oh, that could be good.)

[Master] Queen Eaustice is trying to prevent a fourth civil war

[Indigo (Lisa)] (good luck with that)

[Fritz] Or if it is passed on by the male side and there are no male heirs, do they compare the size of their ...to see which most closely resembles a male penis and the larger....wins?

[Devin] Right now, with Willimina captured... She might be trying to start one too.

[Devin] Although she could just call in a drone strike.

[Master] Drillian is unusual in its form of monarchy - Matriarchal Male Primogeniture. It is officially called the Kingdom of Drillian with the inheritance running the the male son. However the Queen is the ruler of the Kingdom and only a Queen can rule. This creates the dynamic that a Queen looks for the best woman for her son to marry and each noble house vying for the next chance to rule the Kingdom.

[Fritz] That needs males

[Devin] Drones ARE males.

[Fritz] exactly

[Devin] At least as far as ants and bees are concerned.

[Devin] Does the "best woman" have to be a noble?

[Master] both of the Princes died

[Fritz] So they prostitute out the daughters to the sons with the biggest scepters?

[Master] Anastacia is the only surviving offspring

[Fritz] Whore!

[Master] so a new Queen will be picked

[Devin] No, they prostitute out the sons to the daughters with the biggest chalices.

[Master] adn then a new Consort

[Fritz] Ahhh!!! Makes sense Devin

[Master] and not to have to be a noble

[Fritz] Just have a LARGE DOWERY!!!!

[Devin] What family line did Willimina come from? nobile, I presume.

[Devin] Mine is plenty big for the both of us, no worries Fritz.

[Fritz] Nubile you mean

[Master] the Mosskins have had several Queens

[Master] as have had the Drakes

[Master] (Count Drake here in the Ghostwood Estate)

[Fritz] Hey do they play professional basketball also?

[Fritz] Since you mention queens

[Devin] Or have big ears?

[Master] 2-9-135 SKR Queen Melody Cowles declares that Lisba Drake will succeed her as Queen 27-9-135 SKR the first of 7 assassination attempts on Lisba Drake 1-2-136 SKR Queen Lisba Drake takes the throne when Queen Melody Cowles dies in the 8th assassination attempt on Lisba Drake 12-12-148 SKR Queen Lisba Drake's lover Brank Uklo is appointed as successor 28-12-148 SKR Queen Brank Uklo takes the throne as Queen Lisba Drake retires 1-1-149 SKR the first public accusation that Queen Brank Uklo is actually a male masquerading as female 2-8-152 SKR Willow Quellcon takes the throne as Queen Brank Uklo retires childless Although this happened two centuries ago this is the source of animosity between the two families. Queen Lisba Drake retired to the Ghostwood Domain leaving Queen Brank Uklo to deal with the problems at Court alone.

[Master] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.GhostwoodDomain

[Fritz] So Brank was a queen....Told you!!!

[Master] There is a lot more to that story

[Devin] Even if Brank were male, wouldn't that still make him a queen?

[Master] http://www.dragonslayers-society.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php?n=Main.Drillian-History

[Fritz] Did Brank come out of the closet during the second or third civil war?

[Master] but moving on

[Fritz] You know...After 2 centuries they should just let bygones be

[Fritz] BI-gones

[Devin] This is royalty. I have CATS who can't do that.

[Master] 1-2-339 SKR Queen Catherine Eustace takes the throne as planned with her Consort Aatos Uklo when Queen Mihaela Doeskin dies

[Fritz] ROFLMAO

[Fritz] get it ....Bygones- BIgones

[Master] as you can see on the calendar it is now 342

[Devin] It really is a queer word. "Bygones"

[Fritz] I have 9:00

[Master] and ready to start again?

[Fritz (to Devin only)] maybe we should stop teasing Bob?

[Master] remember this is a Princiess who taught Indigo Mastery in short swords

[Devin (to Fritz only)] why? its fun!

[Fritz] Hehehe

[Fritz] ok

[Indigo (Lisa)] (don't go and warn them)

[Devin] Just FYI. I have a friend coming to observe here in a moment.

Scrysis-94929 has joined the game on Fri May 03 21:03:41 EDT 2013

Scrysis-94929 is receiving the map Temporary Guest rooms...

[Master] hey!

[Master] good

[Indigo (Lisa)] (this very moment)

[Devin] (yup, this very moment)

[Master] ok while she gets set up

[Fritz] Hello friend of Devin

[Master] ready?

[Master] INdigo you can start off

[Devin] Christina, this is the group. group, Christina.

Scrysis-94929 has received the map Temporary Guest rooms.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (Hi Christina :) )

[Master] Hello Christina

[Scrysis-94929] Hi (I'm just an observer, do not worry!)

[Master] LOL we like visitors

[Master] Devin can help you get settled in

[Devin] Visitors is how we gain new players, is that not right?

[Master] this is true

[Heckat (Fritz)] Left

[Devin (to Fritz only)] If its right side up, isn't it on its left side?

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] that's what I said

[Devin (to Scrysis-94929 only)] you can chat to only me by starting your message with \Devin

[Indigo (Lisa)] (Indigo left off with his where has wilamina been spiel)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (wasn't sure anastacia knew about all that)

[Master] this? You know about the whole Wilamina hidden in the library at Vilmar thing and then the werewolves kidnapping her only to have her kidnapped from them too, right?

[Indigo (Lisa)] (that was it)

[Master] OK

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] SO Indigo you are telling me that you were right and Toybin was wrong?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] that Wilamina was at Vilmar?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] so which of the boys kidnapped her?

[Indigo (Lisa)] Well .... I guess so.

[Indigo (Lisa)] But that wasn't what I was trying to say.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] (Christina your phone is ringing, up on your tool bar across the top(

[Indigo (Lisa)] No! She was there by herself. Writing some book and studying.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Well I am goin to guess that Toybin was partially right if you are both here now too

[Heckat (Fritz)] She is shy that way Miss princess. Branwyn hates to upstand anyone. But she is generally more right than Tobyn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She was studying geneology but she didn't say exactly what she was doing. It did seem odd to me.

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks thoughtful

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I didn't know she cared for such things or why she needed to be so secretive.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She wouldn't come with us when we asked.

Anastacia Eustace (Master) glances up at Branwyn

[Heckat (Fritz)] What if someone else was a male heir?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] So what happened?

[Indigo (Lisa)] Which is how the werewoilves got her!

[Indigo (Lisa)] She wanted to ge in the book festival and said we had to go away and leave her alone.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Did anyone ever look at the geneology book that she had

[Indigo (Lisa)] She even held a dagger up to Androp!

[Indigo (Lisa)] (we weren't allowed in)

[Heckat (Fritz)] Maybe she was afraid that she wasn't the daughter of the queen.

[Indigo (Lisa)] So we decided we would get her at the festival but early that morning they got her.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (she isn't)

[Indigo (Lisa)] (she also knows that)

[Indigo (Lisa)] But these werewolves wanted to take her for a ... for a

[Indigo (Lisa)] political statement

[Devin] Wait... You guys were turned away before she got kidnapped?

[Devin] are we sure she got kidnapped?

[Indigo (Lisa)] They wanted their own werewolf village.

[Indigo (Lisa)] (sigh)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] That is a bit crazy

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] who would let them have their own village

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks at Toybin

[Indigo (Lisa)] No one!

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I was not there!

[Grink (Devin)] It might keep them out of our hair if they did have their own village.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I was here guarding the entrace to the Ghostwood

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] So Toybin was not there to protect the Queen Presumptive

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] you found her and then lost her at the Vilmar Estates

[Indigo (Lisa)] But we tracked them to a village and we told the mayor everything and we got attacked by the werewolves and a werebear!

[Indigo (Lisa)] The mayor got the werewolf and they were going to bring her back to us.

[Indigo (Lisa)] But then ....

[Heckat (Fritz)] What if the werewolves had a queen on the throne. Would they then be allowed to have their own town?

[Indigo (Lisa)] he went back and she got kidnapped from them!

Anastacia Eustace (Master) surpresses a smile at Indigo's story telling style

[Indigo (Lisa)] And he brought us back part of a cloak with the Count's ensignia on it so we came here.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Wait

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] so you are telling me that someone kidnapped the Queen Presumptive and took her to Vilmar

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] but she was nto really kidnapped

Indigo (Lisa) looks up "Yes?"

[Indigo (Lisa)] No!

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] then someone DID kidnap her and took her to the werewovles

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] ok

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] tell me please

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It appears Wilamina went to Vilmar of her own accord

[Branwyn (Lisa)] To enter the book festival.

[Heckat (Fritz)] How important is it for the werewolves or werefolk to have their own village/town?

[Heckat (Fritz)] What is a book festival?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Because she wanted to keep her studies secret she locked herself in the basement of the library and the priest would not allow us access.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But in the early morning of the festival, several werewolves kidnapped her from the library.

[Heckat (Fritz)] But I thought they only come out at night?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (book festival is huge celebration at Vilmar. Celebrity judges exhibits etc)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (werewolves?)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (they don't have much to do at Vilmar apparently)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] (LOL)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (It was morning unless I am not remembering right)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] (correct)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we had a plan and the capt was letting me over there)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master) (to Scrysis only)] feel free to ask questions, did Devin tell you about the Edit and Prefercnes menu? lots of things to change there

[Heckat (Fritz)] What kind of prizes does someone get for a bunch of books?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] This is where we met Shurkural, who is a very good tracker of these kinds of things.

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] we're on Skype

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She led us to the village Indigo talked about.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master) (to Devin only)] excelletn

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we didn't get a chance to stay for book party)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The mayor over there is a werebear by the way.

[Scrysis (to Master only)] I'm distracted by wondering if the werewolves didn't decide to convert their political hostage.

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks at Toybin

[Anastacia Eustace (Master) (to Scrysis only)] that is somethign that they do not know yet.... grins

[Anastacia Eustace (Master) (to Scrysis only)] you should ask that or have Dev ask

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] What?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I told you I was here at Ghostwood

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I had nothign to do with any of that

[Grink (Devin)] The voice in my head is wondering if the werewolves maybe converted the princess while they had her. It is their way.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] It just sounds like you to get invovled in a villiage in teh swamps

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I wish you had been with us. Maybe you could have gotten through to Wilamina.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (don't think so - 1st batch wanted to use her as a pawn 2nd were under Count's orders)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (you can't bargain with a daughter you destroy)

[Master] Time of Day: 12:56 PM. Day 5 Be ___ de, Ze {Mid Summer} 5th, 342 SKR.

[Grink (Devin)] (Werewolves only look wolfish 2 nights out of the month... it'd give her an alliance... of sorts)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] ( we shall find out soon enough)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The idiot priests at Vilmar wouldn't let me talk to her and you know Wilamina, stubborn as a mule. Wouldn't listen to anything Ilero and Androp said.

Toybin of Castling (Master) startles and look offended

[Heckat (Fritz)] Although the queen is chosen is there any lineage to ascertain her competency or right?

Anastacia Eustace (Master) laughs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She probably would have listened to you Toybin!

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] did she know who Ielero or Androp were?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She knows Ilero well enough.

[Grink (Devin)] Is she pretty?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] is he the one with the accent? hardly anyone understands him?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Androp unfortunately got to see her for the first time and she wasn't too kind to him.

Grink (Devin) looks innocent as he asks.

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] She is a princess, of course she is beautiful

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That's Ilero

[Grink (Devin)] Well, at least I might know her if I see her at this point.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I need to go back down to the valley for Mother

[Heckat (Fritz)] Does anyone know who Queen Elina Quellcon divorced before remarrying Pilot Vilmar?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] the Count will be hosting dinner at 630

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] just

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] just after sunset, we know

[Branwyn (Lisa)] How are we supposed to get Wilamina from the belvedere past all these guards?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] you know I expected someone a lot older for Count Drake

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] he seems to be real flesh and blood

[Grink (Devin)] How do we know Wilamina is in the belvedere?

[Grink (Devin)] I guess there's not much else places she COULD be, but still.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If she's not, I don't know if we'll ever find her.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I'm just hoping is all.

[Grink (Devin)] (BRRRIIINNNNGGGGG BRRRIIIINNNNGGGG)

[Grink (Devin)] (Christina is getting a message)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I will say that I do hope you find out where she is, it would be horrible to not find her now

[Indigo (Lisa)] I don't see how that's any different from what I just said.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I will speak with mother

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Sir Indigo

[Indigo (Lisa)] Yes, Ma'am!

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I expect you to be in attendance

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] looks at Toybin and Branwyn

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] you two also

[Indigo (Lisa)] If they'll let me.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I am certain that we can find some places for your friends also

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] if who lets you Indigo?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Toybin?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] It is not my fault, I told you

[Indigo (Lisa)] The Chamberlain. They keep calling me prisoner.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] look

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] you do what you need

[Indigo (Lisa)] I'm in the dungeon

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] you know these people better thanme

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] but I want Sir Indigo as my squire while I am staying here

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] Make that happen

Indigo (Lisa) looks up happily

[Grink (Devin)] The Count saw fit to stick some of our party in the dungeon for what happened in the town.

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks at Grink

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] did they deserve it?

[Grink (Devin)] I certainly don't think so.

Anastacia Eustace (Master) looks at Branwyn

[Heckat (Fritz)] What is the name of the current queen?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] (Queen Eustace)

[Grink (Devin)] It was in the name of whatever sherrif wanted to waggle his wang at the time.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Full name?

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] 1-2-339 SKR Queen Catherine Eustace takes the throne as planned with her Consort Aatos Uklo when Queen Mihaela Doeskin dies

[Anastacia Eustace (Master) (to Scrysis only)] by the way if Devin has not warned you, there is a website that we keep track of lots of this on

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It was all over the break in at the town we talked about. In the search for Wilamina we didn't think it best to argue with the Count.

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] So you broke in

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] you were caught

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] so you deserve to be punished

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] next time don't be caught

[Indigo (Lisa)] Yes Princess

[Scrysis (to Master only)] Thank you. :-)

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I need to see Mother

Grink (Devin) to the table "I like the way this girl thinks."

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] I expect dinner

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] and drinks

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] and NO fire tricks Branwyn

[Anastacia Eustace (Master)] unless you have figured out how to not burn the throne room down

Grink (Devin) looks at Bran

Branwyn (Lisa) pretends to look shocked "Who me? At formal gatherings?"

[Grink (Devin)] I believe this calls for storytime.

[Master] Anastacia Eustace moved 12'00".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I promise not to set the castle on fire.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] well that went well

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am so glad she is here.

[Indigo (Lisa)] Me too!

[Grink (Devin)] It should advance things with our search... if the princess is here.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Tobyn I have a question

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] yes?

[Heckat (Fritz)] The line of succession is past down from the male side correct?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] yes

[Heckat (Fritz)] So the current queen choses a woman to marry a male who is in direct line to the throne?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Prince Bran died three years ago

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] it was very hard, he died of the grey death

[Heckat (Fritz)] What if there was another male in line to the throne?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] prince Dioma died just over a year later, he was killed when thrown from his horse

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] there is none

[Heckat (Fritz)] What if there was another male in line to the throne?

[Heckat (Fritz)] What IF?!?!?!

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Anastacia had two younger brothers

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] both are dead

[Heckat (Fritz)] What IF?!?!?!

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I think that is why the QUeen is looking to name her heir now

[Grink (Devin)] Then someone is getting the throne pulled out from under him and is probably going to land on his ass.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I think Anastacia would know if she had a third brother

[Heckat (Fritz)] But if there was someone NOT her brother

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I would have met him at Court

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (if there was another male, the queen would pick a bride. that bride would become queen and the son would give her children)

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] then he would not be in line

[Heckat (Fritz)] Why NOT?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] because only the son of the Queen can be married to a Queen

[Grink (Devin)] Royalty only goes down the line, not up and over?

[Heckat (Fritz)] The line doesn't pass down through the women

[Heckat (Fritz)] But what if it was the son of a previous queen?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] that would not matter

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (then he would be really old?)

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Dane or Oskari or Onni cannot rule

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (or a vampire)

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] they are the uncles to Anatasia

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] the Queen is married to Aatos Uklo

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] It was thought it would be a good match

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (thought this queen had been around a long time)

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] 3 years

[Heckat (Fritz)] What about a Cowles?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] the young girl?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] she is only what? 8?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] how could the Queen pick her? I think that is just a ruse to get people to be riled up

[Heckat (Fritz)] What about a male cowles?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] would not matter

[Grink (Devin)] Giving her more leeway to choose someone she likes when she doesn't choose someone quite so... outlandish?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] it has to be a son of QUeen Eustace

[Heckat (Fritz)] But if she has no sons?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] then just like when Queen COwles died

[Heckat (Fritz)] Shouldn't it go to another male

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] there was a debat in the noble houses and they chose Mihaela Doeskin

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] who married Jouko Uklo

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] and their son Aatos married Queen Catherine Austace

[Heckat (Fritz)] So a male Uklo would be the next king

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] it is all very easy to understand

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] there is no such thing as a King

[Heckat (Fritz)] Yea right!!!

[Heckat (Fritz)] figuratively speaking

[Grink (Devin)] No Kings, just boytoys for queens.

[Heckat (Fritz)] So the line is passed down fromthe queens then not the males

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] no

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] the sons of the Queen are the ones who marry the new Queen

[Grink (Devin)] is it the old queen's choice? or the sons?

[Heckat (Fritz)] But if there are no sons then how can there be a queen to be married

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] the Queen always, or at least is supposed to choose a sucessor

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] that was the problem when Queen China Cowles died

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] she did not leave an heir or a son

[Heckat (Fritz)] The successor is still just a woman that marries her SON

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] yes

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] but the woman chosen as Queen now will chose her Consort

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] which makes this a much more complicated issue than it normally would be

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I have to admit that Count Drake is not what I expected

Toybin of Castling (Master) looks at Branwyn

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] did you think much of the Vilmar sons?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (sorry)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I like them very much.

[Heckat (Fritz)] What would happen if a Vampire was named consort? What would happen to the Order of Brotherhood?

Toybin of Castling (Master) pauses

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I think they may go beserk

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] how could a vampire be consort?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] can vampires have children?

[Heckat (Fritz)] They are sworn to protect the royal family.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] well I suppose the Drakes had children some how

[Master] Time of Day: 01:11 PM. Day 5 Be ___ de, Ze {Mid Summer} 5th, 342 SKR.

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] Female vampires probably can't. Stabbed with wood and all.

[Heckat (Fritz)] But if the male heir never dies what happens if the queen dies without a son?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I think that is exactly why the Brotherhood would go beserk

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] Stabbed with WOODY

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] Stabbed with WOODY

[Heckat (Fritz)] But if the male heir never dies what happens if the queen dies without a son?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I think it would be a horrible disaster

[Grink (Devin)] War, probably.

[Grink (Devin)] Its happened before, I'm sure.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] but I would hazzard a guess that someone would have to pick a new Queen

[Heckat (Fritz)] Why?

[Heckat (Fritz)] You still have a male

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] 2-5-263 SKR Queen Nadia Vilmar abdicates the throne and runs off with her lover to Terraguard leaving no indication of a choice of heir, the Royal Consort Polin Bolpel is found drunk 4 days later in a brothel

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] 14-2-187 SKR Queen Maribel Eustace marries her daughter Florence to her son Edward and names him Royal Consort to attempt to keep the inheritance of the throne in her family. 28-10-187 SKR after months of fighting the Eustace noble family is decimated by attacks and relinquishes the throne and marries Edward to the Bolpel family. One aspect of the settlement to end the Third Drillian Civil War is that Edward can only marry a member of the Bolpel family.

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] are you messing with Bob? 'cause I don't see how any of this is advancing... anything.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] no actually trying to figure out what the FUCK is going on

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] ok. just checking. I think at this point, we're still looking for Wilamina, who is, it is decided, no longer in the castle, which is why we want to check out the other space.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Yes but there was a former queen still alive to choose another queen but actually marries her to his son

[Heckat (Fritz)] her son aka incest

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] there is no other queen alive

[Heckat (Fritz)] bro's, Ho's and sista's

[Heckat (Fritz)] EXACTLY!!!

[Heckat (Fritz)] Also did anyone every find out why Brother Umlook tried to kill Luliu Eustace?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] So what needs to happen soon, by midsummer night is that the Queen will be at teh Royal Estates and have a naming ceremony, where she will announce the name of the Queen Presumptive

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] excuse me? Brother who?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Umlook

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] ummm wasn't that a hundred years ago?

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I think they solved that

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] we are trying to solve this problem

[Heckat (Fritz)] He ended up getting killed by

[Heckat (Fritz)] sir Yilk Gronark

[Heckat (Fritz)] Ok... I'll keep quiet

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] I do enjoy going over the lineages,

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Mina used to go on about them too

[Heckat (Fritz)] It is just a fucking ...pardon me Miss Branwyn...confusing puzzle as to why someone would do this

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] why someone would do what?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Kidnap the princess who was trying to discover secrets within the lineage of the different royal families and how they intertwined

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] she is not actually a Princess yet, she is just Wilemina Mosskin, but soon will be the Queen Presumptive

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] Anastacia is the Princess

[Heckat (Fritz)] Sigh

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] but I do believe I understand what you mean

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I don't think Wilamina let anyone know what she was studying at Vilmar.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] and I believe that someone tried to kidnap her to influence her on who she should choose for her consort

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That I agree with.

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] or they would kidnap her to stop the QUeen from choosing her

[Toybin of Castling (Master)] but it seems that is not the case right now

[Heckat (Fritz)] Ya

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And since I serve Lord Mosskin and have known Wilamina for a few years now. This is important to me.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Who are the direct ancestors of Wilamina Mosskin?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we will never get to the belvedere)

[Heckat (Fritz)] Go ahead...I will shut up

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no - go ahead )

[Heckat (Fritz)] No Bob has me feeling dumber than his NPC's at the moment [Branwyn (Lisa)] (was just funny how this night started, thought we would be done and everyone would miss it)

[Heckat (Fritz)] So I'll just keep my bardic mouth shut for the time being

[Master] how to help you feel clearer Fritz?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Clorox?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Bob has created an insanerly complicated world here)

[Master] you have touched on several of the threads for this Era

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] Christina is giggling at your attempt to convert her... already.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (the rules I just go with - the people you will get in time)

[Master (to Devin only)] grins, good it is working then

[Heckat (Fritz)] I'm surprised everyone doesn't have hemophyllia

[Heckat (Fritz)] My brain is hemmorraghing...so go ahead...

[Master] one of the key stumbling blocks is that in recent times there has been two times that there was no male heir to progress throguh as normal

Grink (Devin) sews Fritz's bran back together.

[Heckat (Fritz)] I will just stay confused...who knows I may actually be the next male heir

[Grink (Devin)] "Sorry Fritz, I had an 'i' leftover.

[Grink (Devin)] "

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (yo0u are missing an vital part for male heirness so I wouldn't be too concerned you will get chosen any time soon)

[Master] chuckles

[Master] OK

[Master] so everyone is fairly muddling along

[Master] Branwyn, and who else wants to go peek inside the belvedere?

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Lisa only)] well I am bald so that explains the lack of Hairyness

[Devin] Oooh me! me! pick me! pleeeeeaaaasssseeeeee!!!!

Heckat (Fritz) raises hands partially

[Scrysis] I can't stay too long, but I wanted to thank all of you for so kindly tolerating my intrusion into your campaign. :-)

[Branwyn (Lisa) (to Fritz only)] lol

[Master] thank you for stopping by Chrinsta

[Master] come on by any Friday

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If you haven't been scared off my insane blood lines and so forth

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It's not always politics :)

[Master] chuckles

[Grink (Devin)] She's known me for too long to be scared off by something as mundane as that.

[Scrysis] Hahaha, I haven't. :-) Thank you so much, and I wish you well until next time. :-)

Scrysis has left the game on Fri May 03 22:15:38 EDT 2013

[Master] so Grink, Heckat, Bran,

[Master] is Indigo going? is Toybin?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (How can anyone refuse a trip to the belvedere?)

[Master] do you want Toybin with you?

[Grink (Devin)] (I'm with Lisa on this one. Lets go see how the other half lives. I want to see concubines and grapes being fed by slaves, and mostly naked muscly men.)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (I don't speak for toybin. does toybin want to go?)

[Grink (Devin)] (er... women)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (LOL)

[Master] he will come

[Master] unless you do not want him

[Heckat (Fritz)] To much Spartacus

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I want Indigo

[Master] do you like gladiators Devin?

[Grink (Devin)] (Only when they're hot and sweaty)

[Heckat (Fritz)] Have you ever seen a naked man in the lockerroom?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (that's a really odd question)

[Master] airplane

[Master] brb

[Grink (Devin)] roger

[Master] I am away from the keyboard.

[Heckat (Fritz)] roger

[Grink (Devin)] Don't call me shirley!

[Heckat (Fritz)] Ooooh the shits really going to hit the fan

[Heckat (Fritz)] How do you like your coffee?

[Grink (Devin)] This was a bad week to quit amphetamines.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Shirley you must be joking

[Grink (Devin)] Don't call me Shirley!

[Heckat (Fritz)] I have a drinking problem

[Grink (Devin)] Do we have clearance, clarance?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Roger roger

[Grink (Devin)] do you speak jive?

[Heckat (Fritz)] I speak Jive. Biatch

[Grink (Devin)] HELP HELP, i'M BEING REPRESSED!

[Master] I am back at the keyboard.

[Master] tarts distributing swords in ponds is not a form of government

[Heckat (Fritz)] Ni...We are the Knights who say NI!

[Master] and so

Devin is receiving the map winter gardens...

Devin has received the map winter gardens.

[Master] Toybin will go try to prepare things for this evening and let you go investigate

[Heckat (Fritz)] Wouldn't it be funny if this Count Drake was actually Brank Uklo who masqueraded as Lisba Drake 2 centrues ago?

[Master] High Guard moved 34'04".

Lisa is receiving the map winter gardens...

Lisa has received the map winter gardens.

[Grink (Devin)] So, he'd actually be Queen Count Drake?

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] Christina is liking the client, now she's fretting about license costs. *sigh*

[Master] smiles, I do not think anyone made that connection yet

[Heckat (Fritz)] or Count Queen DRake

[Heckat (Fritz)] Or Count Drake the Queen

[Master (to Devin only)] tell her to talk to me first, will explain everything,

[Grink (Devin)] Or, the dragon in drag?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Would that be a Drag in ?

[Grink (Devin)] /r ok.

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] ok damnit. Too much MMO.

[Master] so you have Rando

[Master] he escorts you outside into the courtyard

[Master] and takes you to the rear of the Castle

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] I'm right aren't I?

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] where do you gat dragon milk?

[Master] and to one of the two guard towers

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] the Grocery store?

[Master] adn then through one of those doors

[Master] and then down through a set of stairs inside

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] from a cow with very short legs.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] HAR!!!

[Master] you come out all the way down on what seems to be the first dungeon level

[Master] Rando moved 70'02".

[Master] Branwyn moved 12'03".

[Grink (Devin)] So, they tucked the queen away underground. Sounds fitting. /me glares in the general direction of the count... or where I guess he'd be.

[Master] Indigo moved 17'05".

[Master] Grink moved 19'03".

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Lisa only)] if the count turns out to be the old queen I am going to shoot Bob

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] I'm glad someone appreciates my terrible sense of humor.

[Branwyn (Lisa) (to Fritz only)] that would kill me

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] snicker...

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] the snickers bar was actually named after a horse, not a laugh.

[Grink (Devin)] Shal we storm the ba- bu- bi- thingy?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Where are we going Rando? They don't put belvederes in dungeons.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] I thought it was named for the sounds people made when they got some dumb ass to eat a piece of shit thinking it was a candybar

[Master] This is the only way to get otu there

[Master] Rando moved 40'02".

[Master] Branwyn moved 37'04".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 50'06".

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] that'd be a gafaw, not a snickers.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] DAmn...You are SO RIGHT

[Master] Rando moved 5'08".

[Master] Branwyn moved 8'08".

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] the snickers would be BEFORE they ate it.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 5'06".

[Master] he leads you to a set of staris that goes down

[Master] then on a landing

[Master] that has stairs that go down again

[Master] and in front of you the ceiling suddenly disapears

[Master] and you have an open roof

[Master] Rando moved 12'03".

[Master] Branwyn moved 15'02".

[Master] Indigo moved 54'04".

[Master] Grink moved 61'02".

[Master] Heckat moved 13'03".

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] all this "going down" and no one coming!!!! Sad Sad SAd

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] Some of us aren't hair triggers.

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] it takes a LOT of going down.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Is this an open air atrium Bob?

[Master] yes

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] says the one with a BIG CHALICE!!!

[Master] Rando moved 10'05".

[Master] Branwyn moved 14'09".

[Master] Heckat moved 11'01".

[Master] Grink moved 6'11".

[Master] Indigo moved 11'03".

[Heckat (Fritz)] I step to the side and let out an SBD...I've been holding it for hours.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 21'01".

[Master] Rando moved 28'05".

[Master] Rando targets High Guard. Distance: 2'05"

Heckat (Fritz) Woooooofffsss

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 34'05".

[Master] We are here to show our guests around

[Heckat (Fritz)] Ahhhh

[High Guard (Master)] you can take them out on the balconies

[Master] Rando moved 17'10".

[Master] Rando no longer targets High Guard.

[Heckat (Fritz)] /whispers Avoid the far corner for the next 10 minutes

[Master] Heckat moved 25'06".

[Master] Branwyn moved 45'07".

[Master] Indigo moved 42'10".

[Master] Grink moved 47'09".

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] and you're calling MY chalice big?

[Heckat (Fritz)] GUFFAW!!!

[Heckat (Fritz)] Hey Randy. Why can't we go back that way?

[Master] Rando moved 14'07".

[Master] Branwyn moved 17'08".

[Master] Heckat moved 13'04".

[Master] Grink moved 10'01".

[Master] Indigo moved 15'09".

[Master] Rando moved 15'07".

[Master] you are out on the balcony overhanging the cliff

[Master] there is a small dome over this area

[Heckat (Fritz)] Yo Randy!!

[Master] but you can look out over the valley

[Master] see the royal camps

[Master] etc

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 20'08".

[Master] (he is ignoring you)

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 19'03".

[Heckat (Fritz)] RANDY

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 23'10".

[Heckat (Fritz)] RANDY

[Heckat (Fritz)] RANDY

[Heckat (Fritz)] RANDY

[Heckat (Fritz)] RANDY

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It's a very nice view from here, It's too bad it's so difficult to find.

[Heckat (Fritz)] (I can keep this up all night)

[Heckat (Fritz)] RANDY

Rando (Master) looks at Branwyn

[Heckat (Fritz)] RANDY

[Rando (Master)] if I threw her off of here, would you mind?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You don'ty have to answer her if you don't want to.

[Grink (Devin)] Now I can understand why the queen might not mind staying down here.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Not in the slightest.

Heckat (Fritz) Gulp

[Grink (Devin)] None of us do.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 4'06".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Steps back

[Branwyn (Lisa)] His name is Rando Heckat. He might answer if you were polite.

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] Now I want to pee off the balcony.

Heckat (Fritz) mumbles...Hissss nmame iss Randdduuuu heckat. Heee miiiji wiiji anji u were pooolits..

[Heckat (Fritz)] Yes mam.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Sorry mam

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Please toss her over Rando

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 6'02".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You would be doing me an enormous favour.

[Heckat (Fritz)] STeps back again...

[Grink (Devin)] By force, as necessary.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 8'04".

[Grink (Devin)] Can we see any of the other rooms?

[Grink (Devin)] This looks like an amazing place. I'd like to see how it is furnished.

[Grink (Devin)] But I don't wish to intrude.

[Rando (Master)] there are not that many furnished rooms here actually

[Rando (Master)] it is used more for guests

[Rando (Master)] and for entertaining

[Master] Rando moved 11'08".

[Heckat (Fritz)] (Now that she has pestered the guard into wanting to avoid her, Heckat with her amazing intellect and cunning sneaks away to look around unnoticed

[Rando (Master)] walks right up to Heckat

[Heckat (Fritz)] (DAMN YOU BOB)

[Rando (Master)] grins

[Rando (Master)] would you like to see the balconies?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Uhmmmm Not if you are planning on throwing me over...NO

[Master] Rando moved 17'08".

[Master] Rando moved 11'05".

[Master] Branwyn moved 22'08".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 16'08".

[Rando (Master)] This room has light in it, but arrow slits not an open balcony

[Heckat (Fritz)] Stands in doorway...FAR from edge

[Master] Rando moved 22'07".

[Master] Rando moved 45'10".

[Master] Branwyn moved 14'07".

[Master] Rando moved 61'05".

[Master] Branwyn moved 16'07".

[Master] Indigo moved 11'08".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 60'05".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Can we look at these other rooms?

[Master] Heckat moved 6'04".

[Heckat (Fritz)] (Checks door)

[Master] Rando moved 2'03".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Opens dooor

[Rando (Master)] Branwyn can make an observation check

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 32'04".

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 48'07".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 45'01".

[Fritz] Heckat targets High Guard. Distance: 19'06"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn: Observation check: (d20) [1d20=19] 19 [MODIFIED (+1)] - ROLL FAILED against 18!!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (ouch)

[Master] ok, how about Grink? or Heckat?

[Grink (Devin)] Trying to find the button.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Casts fireball!!! Kaboom!

[Heckat (Fritz)] Don't have observation

[Fritz] Heckat no longer targets High Guard.

[Grink (Devin)] Neither do I, which is kinda strange for a rogue of any kind.

[Grink (Devin)] Grink: Observation check: (d20) [1d20=5] 5 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 9!!

[Grink (Devin)] oh, nevermind.

[Grink (Devin)] wrong panel.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Woot.... Great roll

[Master (to Devin only)] Grink spots a small piece of paper tied to a branch on the tree,

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] how high up?

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Lisa only)] Comic Relief is Out Da House!!!!

[Fritz] I am away from the keyboard.

[Master (to Devin only)] right at end of branch, drooping down at waist highth

Branwyn (Lisa) walks over and peeks into room

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 9'01".

Grink (Devin) walks over and takes a closer look at a branch on the tree, a branch with a bit of paper on it.

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 10'08".

[Master] This room has several beds in it

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 18'01".

[Fritz] Heckat targets High Guard. Distance: 3'08"

[Master] looks like they are freshly prepared

[Master (to Devin only)] does grink take it off the branch?

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at Rando "For the Royal guests?"

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] can I read anything if I don't?

[Rando (Master)] I guess it is for them

[Master (to Devin only)] nope, there is a name on the outside but cannot tell what it is

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] if not, then yes.

[Master (to Devin only)] can you read?

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] um... *checks*

[Master (to Devin only)] pick pockets roll to try and do it without being noticed

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Why is there a guard down here? No one has even come to the castle yet.

[Fritz] I am back at the keyboard.

[Rando (Master)] There are the High Guards at all the important spots

[Rando (Master)] I guess they are makign sure everythign here stays clean and ready

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] I can read/write W Comm, whatever tat is

[Rando (Master)] it is ok as long as you are with me you are fine

[Rando (Master) (to Devin only)] that is what you need, do you take it off the branch?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I do appreciate that..

[Grink (Devin) (to GM only)] Grink: Pick Pockets check:(d100) [1d100=26] 26 - ROLL SUCCEEDED against 85!!

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] yes.

[Rando (Master) (to Devin only)] you slip it off with no one noticing

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Can we see the next room? I hope it isn't a bedroom too.

[Rando (Master)] no I think it is still storage

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] for now I'll stick it in my pocket, and go on with the tour.

[Master] Rando moved 16'10".

[Master] Branwyn moved 11'08".

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 15'01".

[Rando (Master)] yes they left all the ale in here

Branwyn (Lisa) looks disappointed

[Grink (Devin)] ALE! Ale is good.

[Heckat (Fritz)] No gremlin's I hope

[Rando (Master)] I wonder how that got in here

[Grink (Devin)] Hopefully not. We've sure seen enough of them lately.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I pictured fancy tea sets and parlors.

[Rando (Master)] that Gremlin I mean

[Rando (Master)] OH

[Rando (Master)] that is on the balcony there

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Not closets.

[Rando (Master)] the servants bring them out

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 2'00".

[Rando (Master)] set thigns up there

[Rando (Master)] or under the trees,

[Rando (Master)] I guess

[Rando (Master)] I have never actually been here when it is used

[Branwyn (Lisa)] That would be nice.

[Rando (Master) (to Devin only)] looking at the paper is has the name Ilero on the outside and is folded over

[Heckat (Fritz)] (non chalantly listens near the door)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] What's on the other side?

Heckat (Fritz) smiles at the guard

[High Guard (Master)] guard frons at Heckat

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] got it.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat: Detect Noise check:(d100) [1d100=71] 71 - ROLL FAILED against 30!!

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 20'07".

[High Guard (Master)] clears his throat

[Heckat (Fritz)] Walks on

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 17'03".

[Fritz] Heckat no longer targets High Guard.

[Heckat (Fritz)] (non chalantly listens near the door)

Heckat (Fritz) smiles at the guard

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat: Detect Noise check:(d100) [1d100=79] 79 - ROLL FAILED against 30!!

[Master] Branwyn and Rando moved 5'01".

[Heckat (Fritz)] "I'm gettin bettu"

[Rando (Master)] was there anywhere else you wanted me to show you

[Rando (Master)] we should probably be getting back

[Heckat (Fritz)] how about these rooms over here?

[Rando (Master)] if you want to get ready for the reception

[Grink (Devin)] There's a log of nice spaces here.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Maybe the rooms are better on the other side.

[Master] Time of Day: 03:31 PM. Day 5 Be ___ de, Ze {Mid Summer} 5th, 342 SKR.

[Rando (Master)] no they are the same

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We went to so much trouble to get down her we might as well see it all.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (here)

[Grink (Devin)] I agree.

Heckat (Fritz) smiles at the guard

[Master] Branwyn and Rando moved 29'00".

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 12'03".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 4'10".

[Fritz] Heckat targets High Guard. Distance: 6'01"

[Heckat (Fritz)] Steps aside

[Grink (Devin)] More ale, huh?

[Rando (Master)] these are crates

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh. I bet the last room will be the best.

[Grink (Devin)] Oh, so they are.

[Rando (Master)] I am not sure

High Guard (Master) shakes his head

[Rando (Master)] well I guess we cannot go in there

[Rando (Master)] it is ok, we saw most of it

[Rando (Master)] after our guests leave

[Rando (Master)] we can come back if you really want

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But why not now before the guests come?

High Guard (Master) shakes his head

Branwyn (Lisa) frowns wishing she won't have to do any casting

Branwyn (Lisa) looks at high guard, "You don't speak?"

[High Guard (Master) (to Devin only)] are you going to tell her?

[Grink (Devin)] Ah, let him have his quirks, Bran.

[High Guard (Master)] I can speak,

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] Yeah, but not in front of guards.

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am glad for that. But you won't let us finish our tour?

[Grink (Devin) (to Master only)] I'm trying to figure out the right wording to get her off to the side. :P

[High Guard (Master) (to Devin only)] better do it quick or she does something

[High Guard (Master)] You do not need to go in this room

[Grink (Devin)] Bran. C'mere for a second.

[Grink (Devin)] I've got a thought.

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 41'09".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But ...

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 11'06".

[Grink (Devin)] Just... *waves her over*

Branwyn (Lisa) smiles "I'll be right back"

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 14'11".

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 40'00".

Grink (Devin) hands Bran the piece of paper, after slipping out of site of the guards.

[Grink (Devin)] Grink moved 4'06".

[Grink (Devin)] Its for Ilero.

[Grink (Devin)] It was hanging from the tree.

[Master] the outside has Ilero on it

Branwyn (Lisa) takes paper and reads

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Ilero?

[Master (to Lisa only)] Ilero, bring Branwyn and a weapon to the Queen's chambers after the reception, do NOT (underlined) bring Toybin I will explain there WM

Grink (Devin) tries to look over Bran's shoulder a bit, although not too hard.

Branwyn (Lisa) stares at note not saying a word.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] You read this?

[Grink (Devin)] NOpe

[Grink (Devin)] Nope*

[Master] Time of Day: 03:46 PM. Day 5 Be ___ de, Ze {Mid Summer} 5th, 342 SKR.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I am more confused than ever now.

[Grink (Devin)] Is it anything useful?

Branwyn (Lisa) lowers her voice "It's from Wilamina.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She wants Ilero and I to meet her at the Queen's chambers after the reception.

[Grink (Devin)] Oh, Well, that's good.

Grink (Devin) lowers his voice as well

[Grink (Devin)] right?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We are to bring a weapon, But not Toybin.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She says she'll explain.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Heckat moved 4'03".

[Fritz] Heckat no longer targets High Guard.

[Grink (Devin)] We'll have to distract him.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If she is in the Queen's chambers we wouldn't need a weapon.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It would be the safest place to be.

[Grink (Devin)] Maybe we should get out of here and figure this out?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I don't understand.

[Grink (Devin)] And maybe the weapons aren't for fighting someone.

[Grink (Devin)] Although I see that as hard to believe.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Or I could just cast spook on the guard. He runs and possibly jumps off the balcony and we get in that room right now.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We could do that

[Grink (Devin)] You could do that. I could open the lock... probably.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Or I can. Locks aren't difficult most of the time.

[Master] chuckles

[Grink (Devin)] I'd prefer not to kill the guard. He's just doing his job.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] She seems to have a plan.

[Grink (Devin)] Also, if she's asking us to meet her... yeah.

[Grink (Devin)] She's gotta know something.

[Grink (Devin)] I'd say we go with it.

[Grink (Devin)] Don't fight it, and don't get ourselves out of it before we get into it.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Rando would probably stop him from hurting himself. It was to be a distraction mostly.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Was what I was thinking when we came down here.

[Grink (Devin)] You were thinking this is the last place she could be.

[Grink (Devin)] And I'm betting you're right, but she's gotta know we're here too, if she left us the note.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I think she is here.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes

[Grink (Devin)] And she's gotta know something.

[Grink (Devin)] And there's a reason it doesn't just say "get me out of here".

Branwyn (Lisa) laughs

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I wish it did.

[Grink (Devin)] Oh, Me too.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I would be better with that than waiting and trusting.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] No one ever heard of a vampire knowing you knew what he knew so he sets a trap in which you don't bring the palidin that could defeat him

[Grink (Devin)] Yeah, but if you do that, and it gets her hurt...

[Branwyn (Lisa)] So you think we should wait?

[Grink (Devin)] Yes.

[Grink (Devin)] I've got to trust she knows something we don't.

[Master (to Fritz only)] Toybin is not a paladin, just a Knight of the Court

[Branwyn (Lisa)] It kills me to be so close.....

[Grink (Devin)] mostly... because we don't know much.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] oh. thanks.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If something happens between now and the reception, I'm not sure I could take that either.

[Grink (Devin)] Can you scry through that wall over there in any way?

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I hate the Count!

[Grink (Devin)] see how she is?

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] But wouldn't Tobyn also be the only one who can recognize her?

[Grink (Devin)] (wall of 'her' room)

[Master (to Fritz only)] or Bran or Indigo or Ilero they all know her from home

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] Well I for one can't wait to find out what the hell you have up your sleeve

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Me? I really don't want to polymorph into some wall climbing creature right before the reception.

[Master (to Fritz only)] androp met her once

[Grink (Devin)] Understandable.

[Grink (Devin)] If nothing else, we can show the queen if things go belly up.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I could cast myself in there but would have to walk out the door and I don't think the guard would like that.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The note says not to tell Toybin.

[Grink (Devin)] then we don't tell Toybin.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] If we're going to trust her, we can't tell him.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] I am having fun just watching them decide what to do....

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Agreed.

[Grink (Devin)] I think he's an ass anyway, if you couldn't tell. Useful, but assish.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh, he's all right. He grows on you.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] indecision always brought about the wrong decision

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I despised him when we first met.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Like he had never seen a mage before. Witch Branwyn this and that.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Afraid I would turn him into a toad.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] But he has a good heart.

[Grink (Devin)] hehe. That sounds like a good plan to me.

[Grink (Devin)] Anyway, I think we should go "change for dinner".

[Grink (Devin)] Clean up and whatnot.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Yes. The Count wants me in blue tonight.

[Grink (Devin)] blue?

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] of course this does sound like the old group...When in doubt do NOTHING

[Grink (Devin)] Isn't blue the color of purity?

[Grink (Devin)] That... is odd.

[Heckat (Fritz)] GUFFAW!!!!

[Branwyn (Lisa)] And your point is?

[Grink (Devin)] I wonder why he wants you in blue.

[Master] lol

[Heckat (Fritz)] You are so funny Rando

Branwyn (Lisa) looks pointedly at Grink

[Grink (Devin)] I think he might be hitting on you... in a not so subtle way.

[Grink (Devin)] anyway.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Like I said before, he wants something from me. Just not sure what.

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] to late for her virginity

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Oh, and make sure Ilero brings that hand axe.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] I'm not going to be able to hide it in my dress.

[Grink (Devin)] Hrmm... I'll have to wear my robes.

TMO has joined the game on Fri May 03 23:23:18 EDT 2013

TMO is receiving the map Temporary Guest rooms...

[Grink (Devin)] You get Toybin to your rooms, I'll fill in who I can.

TMO has received the map Temporary Guest rooms.

[Grink (Devin)] keep him out of the way.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Thank you

[Grink (Devin)] /bows

[Branwyn (Lisa)] Branwyn moved 19'00".

[Heckat (Fritz)] Hi TMO

[TMO] (Howdy Howdy)

[Master] so back upstairs? you would end up in the main entrance hall and then where to?

[Heckat (Fritz)] you are just in time

[Heckat (Fritz)] Let me fill you in

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (could you feel we were talking about you?)

[Master] you will all be alone at that point

[TMO] (I stab the bad guy in the back! He'd never expect it from someone who's not been there at all!)

[Grink (Devin)] (Your thoughts are good, but after dinner, I think)

[TMO] (Lisa - people are always talking about me. I am the center of all interesting conversations. If it's not about me, it's not interesting.)

[Grink (Devin)] So, off to our various rooms, and fill people in on what's goin on along the way, as we can?

[Master] chuckles

[Master] and yes

[Grink (Devin)] (Interesting. most people have exactly the opposite opinion)

[Master] fill each other in

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (sorry I forgot)

[Master] can talk freely

[Master] you have time to gather and discuss

[Grink (Devin)] (*innocent*)

[Heckat (Fritz)] The Count is a drag queen and former queen who has kidnapped the queen to be and has her trapped in the room behind this guard. The Count is also Bi and wants to have a 3 some with Brawnyn and the queen to BE. He wants her to come here later tonight without Mr goody to shooes (Tobyn)...aka "Litle Prick".

[Master] then get ready

[Grink (Devin)] Yeah, something like that.

[Heckat (Fritz)] So he can have his way with Branwyn.

[Grink (Devin)] You up for that Bran?

[TMO] (Wasn't that part of a Game of Thrones side-story?)

[Grink (Devin)] Ready to put your body on the line for the good of the princess?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Branwyn is planning on stashing a sharp object in her tight slinky blue dress (don't ask where)

[Grink (Devin)] TMO: We just found a note from the missing princess, on the way back to rooms, there will be filling in of story. So far Bran and Grink know. She wants us to meet her in the Queen's chambers, with weapons, and without Toybox, after dinner.

[Heckat (Fritz)] It's a hand axe

[Heckat (Fritz)] She knows where she wants to put the handle, but hasn't figured out what to do with the head...

[TMO] (Where do we get weapons from?)

[Grink (Devin)] Fighting the imp thing a while back.

[Grink (Devin)] he threw it at us.

[Heckat (Fritz)] We have an axe.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (Esmerelda snuck in Branwyn's silver dagger)

[Grink (Devin)] So, we have a dagger, and an axe.

[Heckat (Fritz)] I know where the armory is and I have a key, but it is next to a guard room

[Grink (Devin)] I'm sure we could make a shiv out of something, if we need an extra "dagger"

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (toybin has a dagger if someone wants to try to steal it from him)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (might not be a good idea)

[TMO] (why are we sneaking around Toybin?)

[Heckat (Fritz)] He's a fruit

[Grink (Devin)] because that's what the note said.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (she only said one weapon)

[Grink (Devin)] and because He's a fruit.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Of course I (Heckat) doesn't know any of this.

[Grink (Devin)] And she did, but that makes me think there won't be fighting...

[Heckat (Fritz)] There is always fighting at a wedding

[Grink (Devin)] I'm assuming this whole thing is part of the conversation on the way up to the rooms, of which Heckat would be a part.

[TMO] (... when did this turn into a D&D fanfic?)

[Grink (Devin)] Am I mis-assuming?

[TMO] ;)

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (no)

[Grink (Devin)] When you arrived.

[Master] So you have Dinner at 630 with the Queen, a reception afterwards and now a secret meeting after that where you have to figure out how to get into the QUeen's chambers

[TMO] (ok, just checking)

[Master] you are all walking and talking

[Branwyn (Lisa)] (we walk in?)

[TMO] (I think I may be stumbling a bit too)

[Heckat (Fritz)] Sneak into the queens chambers for a secret rendevous?!?!?!?!!

[Heckat (Fritz)] Right!!!

[Grink (Devin)] (As for getting into the queen's chambers. A lock pick, and a couple of well placed fear style spells should do the trick. I figure its a bit late to be trying to be too worried about quiet at this point)

[TMO] What? *thunk* Ow. .... Really? *thunk* Ow.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Oh wait...I do have a key...

[Master] OH and you missed Anastacia too

[Grink (Devin)] Is that the key to her room?

[Grink (Devin)] I never did learn about the key.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We could tell Anastacia. I'm sure she can walk into the Queen's Chambers without a problem.

[Heckat (Fritz)] It's the key to all the rooms

[TMO] (so we know which room we have to break into?)

[Heckat (Fritz)] Unless she is a vampire in cahoots with the count

[Branwyn (Lisa)] The note just said Queen's Chambers.

[Heckat (Fritz)] I don't trust her....She sounds Russian

[Heckat (Fritz)] You can't trust Russian women

[Heckat (Fritz)] Always running somewhere...In a hurry...

[Heckat (Fritz)] Plus the ole' Cold War thing....

[Grink (Devin)] I got a good feeling about her.

[Grink (Devin)] but with Bob running things... you never know.

[Heckat (Fritz)] EXACTLY

Grink (Devin) casts read thoughts on bob

[Grink (Devin)] I got nuthin.

[Master] everyone likes Anastacia

[Master] she is a popular princess

[Heckat (Fritz)] Take EVERY GOOD FEELING OR FIRST HUNCH...DECIDE WHAT TO DO...THEN DO THE OPPOSITE BECAUSE BOB HAS YOU FUCKED

[Grink (Devin)] which scares me.

[Master] can out duel anyone

[Grink (Devin)] She would have access to weapons too.

[Heckat (Fritz)] If Bob says she is good, then she is bad

[Grink (Devin)] Do we tell her?

[Master] is pretty, can dance, and is not about to cause any problmes

[Heckat (Fritz)] See.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] We've known her from way before. She trained Indigo. She is not some evil demon thing

[Heckat (Fritz)] If you tell her she will turn you in

[Heckat (Fritz)] No but BOB IS

[Master] she cannot wait for her mother to not be Queen so she can go on with her life

[Grink (Devin)] I'm kinda with Lisa here. And if Bob screws us, then we get to try a new scenario.

[TMO] sounds like he's got you pegged, Bob.

[Heckat (Fritz)] 20 years of experience

[Heckat (Fritz)] I've been Bobbed so many times I don't know my head from my asshole

[Branwyn (Lisa)] but you still keep coming back for more

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] the head is in front, the asshole behind.

[Branwyn (Lisa)] :)

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Devin only)] damn but he keeps sticking it to me no matter which way I turn

[Heckat (Fritz)] s&m BABY....

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] that's 'cause he's not picky about which hole.

[Master] careful guys, PG13

[Grink (Devin) (to Fritz only)] besides, you squeak funny.

[Grink (Devin)] Anyway.

[Grink (Devin)] So.... where were we?"

[Master] and remember I see all the whispers

[Heckat (Fritz) (to Master only)] so do we

[Master] lol

[Grink (Devin)] NOW he tells me.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Well I think Lisa has a good plan

[Grink (Devin)] so, have we made it make any sort of sense yet, TMO?

[Lisa] I have a plan?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Uhmm...What was the plan again Lisa?

[Grink (Devin)] lol.

[Grink (Devin)] axe, silver dagger, anastasia (sp?), key, queen's rooms.

[Lisa] that's a plan

[Heckat (Fritz)] Don't forget distract Tobyn

[Grink (Devin)] si?

[Grink (Devin)] Or... I dunno... Tie him up?

[Heckat (Fritz)] Lisa that is a kinky plan of yours and I like it

[Lisa] Indigo can do that.

[Lisa] Not tie him up!

[Grink (Devin)] lol.

[Lisa] I meant distract him

[Grink (Devin)] I think the alcohol is finally kicking in. Everything is funny now.

[Lisa] that is a good thing

[Heckat (Fritz)] Ok. Lisa we follow your lead.

[Master] so you can plot and plan on the site during the week

[Grink (Devin)] I was thinking maybe we could send him down to the prisoners... or something. Make sure they were getting fed. And just not be there when he got back.

[Master] we start next week at dinner with the Queen, then move to the reception

[Grink (Devin)] So, TMO, good timing! You were here for us to finish the session!

[Master] so Toybin will have to be there for both of those

[Master] to help you plan that out

[Heckat (Fritz)] Which Queen? The old one, the soon to be one, or the one that is actaully a man?

[Grink (Devin)] Yes

[Heckat (Fritz)] EXACTLY

[Grink (Devin)] I say we go see the old one to save the new one while dressing upas the one who is actually a man for a disguise.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Hey I actually understood that!!!

[Grink (Devin)] Then you aren't drunk enough.

[Heckat (Fritz)] In Drillian are cousins allowed to marry? Damn...Next week then.

[Heckat (Fritz)] Bob that was actually a serious question

[Lisa] I'm taking off. See you next week!

Lisa has left the game on Fri May 03 23:47:39 EDT 2013

[Heckat (Fritz)] I know brothers and sisters can, but there was a problem once about first cousins. Is that correct?

[Devin] Wait, siblings CAN marry? but cousins can't?

[Master] no the problem was a queen tried to marry her daughter to her son

[Devin] wth?

[Master] that caused the third drillian civil war

[TMO] Woohoo!

[Heckat (Fritz)] Oh ok.. And wasn't there something about 2 cousins not getting married so the queen chose a differetn consort?

[Master] yes that too with a woman picked to be Queen that was a cousin to the current male heir

[Master] lots of stuff on the histories page

[Heckat (Fritz)] Ok...Are you sure you aren't from West Virginia?

[Master] they are not thsi complicated

[Master] make sure to check the site, discuss things if you can

[Heckat (Fritz)] Devin did you tell us exactly what was on the letter, or just what I picked up

[Master] do not wnat to do anything wrong with the Queen at dinner or reception or might just have your head cut off

[Devin] I was never told what was exactly in the letter.

[Devin] Only Lisa knows that.

[Devin] I told you what she told me.

[Heckat (Fritz)] I just infered from the conversation. Ok. Well the trap for us could be set. You know.

[Devin] And that would be a wonderful adventure.

[Heckat (Fritz)] "Hey guys. Sneak into the queens room and bring one weapon."

[Heckat (Fritz)] "that weapon gets used to kill the queen while we are knocked out

[Heckat (Fritz)] Our unconscious bodies found by the slain body of the queen with an illegal weapon we stole

[Heckat (Fritz)] Hey....

[Heckat (Fritz)] I'm just saying...

[Master] on that note

[Heckat (Fritz)] If you think you are doing the right thing...do the exact opposite

[Master] everyone have a great night

[Devin] Then we get to start the next story arc with all new characters.

[Heckat (Fritz)] NIght all
