- Quote 5301
<Gemm> Hmmmm, next week could be weird.
<Alcar> you plan on revealing you're a demon? :p
<Gemm> No, :P. But Fenrick may start saying he thinks Tarrod could be a vampire and start sawing off his head with one of the knives he has.
<Alcar> That might not go over well :p
- Quote 5302
<Alcar> ATTENTION! ATTENTION! Melee weapons should be laser weapons on the sheet. The Computer didn't make an error. To suggest that is treason. Please report to the nearest termination centre.

<AlcarGM> A laser in the ceiling swivels towards Rocky-R-OAD-2.
<Rocky-R-OAD> "I am here because I am trying to fulfill the orders of my friend the Computer!"
<The_Computer> "You are not in briefing room 007, my friend. Let he who is without sin fire the first laser."
<Rocky-R-OAD> "Where must I go to reach this room, oh Computer?"

<Alcar> and then your pc can't get to it, can't get to it. *dies* Repeat. Repeat :p
<Alcar> but decided that was too mean so settled for viking longship crashing through the walls.
- Quote 5307
* Vora looks around again. "Where to start looking.... Well, I guess any way is good as any, as long as it isn't Backward."
* Vora takes Snake's hand reassuringly, and begins to continue onward.
<AlcarGM> Snake squeezes yours, and walks along with yours NOT down a yellow brick road.
* Vora (( skips along, pausing only to eat the dog. ))
<Vora> (( I wonder if it says something about me that when I saw Wizard of Oz when I was little, I thought to myself, "I wonder where the red brick road goes." ))

<AlcarGM> He blinks, then says "Excuse me?"
<Vora> "I had to leave all my things."
<AlcarGM> Rookie: "Oh.. why?"
<Vora> "Because we had to leave. Plus, it might have bombs in it. They put one in my teddy. That's why we don't like it there anymore."
<AlcarGM> The rookie stares at you, then licks his lips nervously. "Who is they?"
* Vora shrugs. "Oh, I don't know. Some bad people. I didn't really bother to find out."
<AlcarGM> The rookie hesitates, then says "So some people blew up your, er, teddy bear and you're, uhm, fleeing Haven?"
* Vora nods.

<aslhk> Whatever you do, don't bleed!
<Alcar> "He's down for one, two . .what's that horrible burning smell?"
- Quote 5310
<Alcar> BTW, Sam better not die. My other pc idea involved a D&D fanatic spell caster in amber :p
<aslhk> he could play in mathemagic land =p
<Alcar> but lucky I decided it was too cruel to Amber :)
<aslhk> there will be 1.414 hells devoted to d&d players =p
<BadNastyBadBadBad> I would have to destroy him
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Fiona would take offense to him, and he would spend the rest of his life thinking he was a small shrubbery
<Alcar> with how many hit dice? :p
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Alcar: He wouldn't know anything about hit dice!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> The only thing he'd be able to think would be: "IMATREEIMATREEIMATREE!!!!"
<BadNastyBadBadBad> And he'd wave his arms in the wind
<Alcar> so gust of wind spell at will!
- Quote 5311
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Fiona would plant him in her garden
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Along with the others
<Alcar> lol... I could see it..

<_____> How long are you going to wait?
<Max`-> (do I have much of a choice?)
* Max`- hallers figuring water and food would do her good
<_____> (( not unless you can come up with some brilliant plan or something ))
<_____> You don't really feel hungry or thirsty
<Max`-> (other then working my way tothe floor and crawling away?)
<_____> You're fairly certain you've been on an IV for the past days/weeks/months
<_____> (( I said 'brilliant' not 'suicidal' ))
- Quote 5313
<_____> "I'm Adwyn! I'm here to kill you!"
<_____> "...or... rescue you?"

- Quote 5315
<_____> Adane: You hear movement in the trees behind you
* Adane runs like hell =p
<Fenrick> "Hey Chicken shit! Its us!"
<_____> (( lol ))
<Adane> "FUCK!" *runs even faster*
<_____> (( * Adane runs faster "Youse cr8z!" ))
<Fenrick> "Heres Johnny!"
<_____> (( lol! ))
* Adane stops, then
<Sammael> (( LOL ))
<Adane> "Just kidding!"
- Quote 5316
<_____> You pass a few more of the lesser reavers, all of which fall quickly. Tarrod (who hasn't given his name yet), is a bit slower now, seeming to be concentrating on other things
<_____> Sammael takes on with a quick swordstroke, Fenrick` another that gets uncomfortably close, with one of tarrod's knives. He must have retrieved it from somewhere, but none of you noticed.
<_____> Fenrick is quite amazingly quick with knives, as well. Inhumanly so.
* Sammael kils the demon in our midst!
<Sammael> "Inhumanly so."
<Adane> inhumanly so =P
- Quote 5317
<Adane> "So?" to Fenrick, when news is obviously not forthcoming
<Fenrick> "There's an old man with some kids in the house. He says theres a barn some 200 yards from there thattaway." He points in the direction. "We can stay there."
<Fenrick> "I had to choose my words wisely otherwise he would have killed me. We can go back and ask him if you really want to know."
<Adane> "People don't just fucking shoot one another like it's nothing."
<Adane> "I will go talk to him. I'd like a clean shirt anyway. Meet you in the barn in a few minutes."
<Fenrick> "Hey you little freaking nerd-boy. You shut your mouth. THink you can do so much better."
<Adane> "Shouldn't be hard."
* Sammael wonders what world Adane comes from that they don't shoot and kill each other like it's nothing.
- Quote 5318
<Fenrick> "Ok then... well I'm gonna stick around here for an.. hour. Then I'm going out with this girl behind the counter."
<Adane> "Are you sure? She sounded kind of dowdy."
<Fenrick> "Whatever. If I have sex you know what'll happen? I'll either die, or wish I was dead. Funny isn't it?"
<Adane> "Well, hey, whatever floats your boat."
- Quote 5319
<Sammael> the streets of Quan are all cobbled with various kinds of stone, often into interesting shapes, or even poems. They're all wide .. no alleyways, no homeless people, no beggars.. it's rather surprising. THe buolgsinare mostly stone, brikc, wood and marble, Lots of gargoyles, cengravings in walls, semi=precious stones decoratintg the cobbles and some buildings. Very nice.
<Ghenn> i'm going to venture a guess that "buolgsinare" is buildings are, and marvel at how the heck that came to be :)
<Sammael> buildings are :P
<Sammael> and here I thought it was some odd joke and googled buolgsinare :p
- Quote 5320
<Sammael> The inn you end up picking is known as The Trolls Rest, a large stone building decorated out front by a stone statue of a troll legend claims was turned to stone by some halfling he was planing to eat.
* Ghenn gets himself a room with a rather nice balcony over the water. It'll make it easier for the DM if my killers have a nice, safe landing to reach in order to kill me more swiftly :)
- Quote 5321
<Sammael> Most of the conversation is centred on the Grand Vizier, who even the most drunk children here won't name, and the extent of hs influence over the aging emperor. No one mentions magic out loud, tho. The only otherbig story of note is unexplained deaths at the Fisherman's Net, a c commoners tavern. Seems most of the people on the stret died, but no one has found any bodies.
<Sammael> There's also stories of a new nation in the south, UK. Nothing concrete, but there's jokes it stands for United Kender
* Ghenn makes sure it's late enough that the Fisherman's Net will be busy, and gets some directions, heading there.
* Ghenn also wishes Ryu didn't exist :)
- Quote 5322
<_____> The entrance to the building is has a keypad, keycard reader, and thumprint scanner
* Sammael says nothing to that, his last wound being a bit too easy to recall :p
<_____> The door is locked
<_____> Right as Sam tries the door the first time, a busy looking gentleman in a business suit open the door, and rushes past Sam, shoving him a little bit, accidentily. "Sorry!" He says, and rushes off towards the parking lot.
* Adane steps inside.
<_____> Sam manages to grab the door before it closes all the way, and you are inside.
<_____> (( yay for good stuff! ;) ))
<Sammael> "The Lord provides," absently, looking around the interior'
<Adane> "He looked like a pretty normal guy to me."
<_____> (( lol! ))
* Adane just isn't good at picking up on christian phrases =P
* Sammael eyes Arthur oddly for a second :p
* Adane is either deadpan or not joking =p
- Quote 5323
<Alcar> mib1 was fun :)
<Baliadoc> but yes, that was tons of fun.
<Alcar> it's master is going ot be seriously angry, now.
<Baliadoc> lol, and messed up!
<Alcar> And maybe scared :p
<Baliadoc> ... you say that after every session i play in, dammit!
<Baliadoc> seriously! someones master is always seriously angry, now.!
- Quote 5324
<Alcar> Oh, at everyone :)
<Alcar> Orgg managed to piss the Goddess off trying to thank her :)
<Alcar> Theliar & Tamil killed a dragon.
<Alcar> Ryu, well, uhm, ticked off the Grand Vizier.
<Baliadoc> yeah, but ryu should tick everyone off. it's just healthier that way :)
- Quote 5325
<Chaos`^> I wanna be a mooist
<Alcar> hehe. They're fun :) Probably the most useless society to get good stuff from, but they don't exactly make demands on pcs.. mind you, finding a wya to count everyone's belly button hair WOULD be hard :p
<Chaos`^> I don't get it
<Chaos`^> it's totally past my bedtime
- Quote 5326
<FSZ-GM> You are in front of a large mansion, Roman style pillars and marble steps lead up to a verdant courtyard ornamented with a fountain.
<FSZ-GM> A red carpet leads past the fountain to a tall teakwood door, torches light up the Garden making the whole of the estate a spectacular spectacle.
<FSZ-GM> "Alright, go in, you will be directed to Tyler by the Secretary.
<FSZ-GM> "Tell him James sent you."
<Adrian> Wow, it's so nice. I wonder how many lowwer class workers made it when they could have used magic?"
<FSZ-GM> You'd imagine more Weapons Inspectors than it takes to change a regime.
<FSZ-GM> er, very many.
- Quote 5327
<FSZ-GM> keep playin or do it tomorrow?
<FSZ-GM> or wait for him for a bit
<Adrian> Rand cannot counter / As he is no longer real / winter is real cold.
<Theresa> FSZ-GM: the haiku!
<FSZ-GM> I am confused, like a lost boy
<FSZ-GM> oh god.
<Theresa> it had to have a nature reference =P
<FSZ-GM> Oh god.
<Adrian> yep :)
<FSZ-GM> Oh god.
<FSZ-GM> shoot me now?
<Theresa> 1d20 attack!
<Sparkie> Theresa 1d20: 1 attack!
<Theresa> sorry, no can do
<FSZ-GM> Theresa fails miserably :)
- Quote 5328
<aslhk> I figure either way will be good!
<aslhk> if he dies, it is properly epic, and if he doesn't, it is properly cliche! =P
<aslhk> Evil Premonition of Doom that is Not In Fact Doomful!
<Alcar> True. But he's fun now. So killing him off wouldn't be as fully. Tho it would be nicely tragic. and the pcs decending into the netherworld to rescue him is as cliche as you get :)
<aslhk> that *would* be cool
<aslhk> I was thinking lee would blame orgg and be pissed forever and ever amen =P
<Alcar> not sure WHY you'd have to rescue him, but we can make somehting up :p
<Alcar> like, the goddess intended for Orgg to heal him because she had other plans for him and is now rather angry. And says things to Theliar like "you woldn't like it when I'm angry"
<Alcar> "My goddess just turned into a giant green man and is calling me a 'puny elf'. We must go, now."
<Alcar> tho worded differently :p
- Quote 5329
<Alcar> It's a simple D&D game involving a kender dark lord and ruler of the UK , elven high priest of a goddess who took 2 sessions to realise he was in fact the high priest, and a love triangle involving an half orc heir to a throne with a royal sword that wants him dead, a confused baron, and another elf disgused as the baron's wife. Oh, and there's a dwarf that shadows talk to.
- Quote 5330
<AlcarDM> The wheel of time goes round and round, round and round, round and round. The wheel of time goes round and round at 7 o'clock in the evening! ... Ok, fine. Plot, right. There's this wheel, right? and it turns? And ages come and .. .they're like eons, but longer, all right?
<AlcarDM> And they come and go, and everyone forgets them the next time they return, much like the constant "jesus didn't die in the bible" stories every decade the press takes as new and shocking, OK? Geeze. All right, in the third age, which is not a trinity reference at all, geeze ... ok, so it's this third age, which is here, but long past and.. just say it's quantum, all right?
<AlcarDM> And this wind rises .... no, not like uncle frank belching .... it's a wind, in a mountain. It blows south, and does a lot of things, and ends up in Quan, where it summarizes plots. Oh, yeah, and stuff might fall under the Shadow. And if it's the shadows under the washer and dryer, good luck finding it again. Oh, and it's a beginning but not the beginning. Copyright issues.
- Quote 5331
<Ghenn> "In the event that any evil within is listening to this, it may also be a good sport and kill you swiftly, so that I can get on with my night."
<AlcarDM> He just glares
<Ghenn> in the event that nothing happens, i begin to slow torture him into madness, sending Imnish out for healing potions (both of body and mind) so that I can either a) draw out the demon within, or b) create a somewhat cracked individual who will most likely be immune to the horrors that such demons could inflict on him :)
<Ghenn> of course, physical pain can only take the mind so far. that's why i'm singing bawdy dwarven love songs in my very off-key voice while doing all this :)
<AlcarDM> lol! Torturing him in any specific ways? The Dm asks, vaguely wondering where this fits into the pcs being heroes
<Ghenn> eh, i don't wanna get into the specifics. use your imagination. i'm using mine! and the logic for this being heroic is... well, difficult, to say the least :)
* Ghenn thinks he's doing the guy a favor. he's either strengthening the man's resolve, or drawing out another Shadow to fight. either way, it solves a problem!
<AlcarDM> you dlon't want mine. I'm thinking about water torture, removal of finger and toe nails with red hot pliets, and then coating his more sensetive areas in honey, and importing rats :p
- Quote 5332
<Ghenn> "If you prove an asset in this venture, I guarantee you'll be a lot happier for it."
<AlcarDM> The MIB barks a quick laugh. "Why?"
<Ghenn> "Mostly, you'll be alive, and not the puppet of a rather lacking dark power."
<AlcarDM> MIB: "... lacking? It can raise the dead!"
* Ghenn sighs
<Ghenn> "Look, been there, done that. It's a lot less impressive once you realize that, when it's dead, it can't raise itself."
- Quote 5333
<Sintaqx> Current alignments are Chaotic/Stupid, Neutral/Stupid, Lawful/Stupid, Lawful/Neutral, and whatever the thief is, probably Chaotic/Neutral
<Sintaqx> Wizard, druid, paladin, monk, thief. respectively :)
- Quote 5334
* Theliar`^ leaves Darien and escorts Tamil back to her room, and goes back to his own and sleeps unless something else comes up
<AlcarDM> d100 1 = tac nuke strike on the city
<Sparkie> AlcarDM d100: 34 1 = tac nuke strike on the city
<AlcarDM> Ok, nothing else happens that night.
- Quote 5335
<Theliar`^> Who is the most able priestess in the temple currently?
<AlcarDM> A priestess named Sara
<Theliar`^> not funny!
<Theliar`^> You should die for even typing that!
<AlcarDM> she'd make a great priestess tho :p
<Theliar`^> no she wouldn't
<AlcarDM> Of course she would. She would love the fertility aspect :)
- Quote 5336
<AlcarDM> The kender turns and looks for you .. but you're well hidden
<Ghenn> stupid... curious... kender.
<Ghenn> why is curiosity only deadly to cats? :)
- Quote 5337
<AlcarDM> The MIB strikes the dwarf in the noggin, forgetting that's the hardest part of a dwarf and looks in something like disbelief at the dented pan
<Darien`> (( perferct facial imprint. Suitable for framing. ))
* Ghenn shakes his head
* takes off his belt and relaces the buckle so that he can slip it over his neck and pull it down nice and tight
<AlcarDM> Sadly, Ghenn's luck seems to be taking a tgurn for the worse as the MIB avoids his attacks with ease.
<> (sounds fine, was planning on trying to ride him after getting it around his neck any way)
<Darien`> (( midgets vs. MIB ))
<Darien`> (( thats some hilarious fun, there. ))
<Darien`> (( be even better if you were dressed as Oompa Loompas. ))
- Quote 5338
<AlcarDM> Ok, Ryu gets on to the counter.. roll attack :p
<AlcarDM> You manage to do it :p
* pulls it nice and tight in fact holds on with both hands and tight then jumps off the counter using his waight to help mess up the MIB
<AlcarDM> The MIB makes a choking sound as the kender pulls him towards the ground.. What's Ghenn do? :p
* Ghenn starts stabbing him a whole lot. Will figure out which "him" he's talking about later :)
<AlcarDM> From the hallway you hear "Someone asked for G .. NO! NO!!!!! IT WANTS TO EAT ME LIKE A PILLLOW!" followed by sreaming
<Darien`> (( why the hell do I always picture kender like mini kobolds? *shakes head* Something wrong with me, I think. ))
- Quote 5339
<AlcarDM> The librarian leads you down over a hundred old, mossy steps, passing some rather old doors, and finally stops at a small landing beside a metal door engraved with runes. "Ah, here we go."
<AlcarDM> she runs her hands over the door and her hand... changes... becoming reptilian, scaled, and clawed.
* Theliar`^ just watches silently
<AlcarDM> After a few seconds, she hisses softly, and looks up at you, her face strange, alien, eyes glowing a bright rred, razor sharp teeth, scaley skin and a sense of danger about her. "Seee. Dangerous wards, this has. Read what you wish, take nothing out." She touches the door wiht both hands, and it opens slowly
* Theliar`^ nods "right."
* Theliar`^ enters
<AlcarDM> The demon librarian hesitastes, then says "And remmeber - return uscrolls before the due date, and be silent." And goes back upstairs, returns to the old lady shape
- Quote 5340
<> "Yah, I don't think they like the idea of bucket eating them."
* Ghenn removes the MIB's head and tosses it in an oven... then throws in a couple of limbs for good measure... then the whole damn body
<Darien`> (( ok, he's crazy, and needs to be stopped. ))
<Ghenn> "Stupid bastard. Try to cut a guy a break, and look what happens?"
<AlcarDM> Lisha stares at the scene.....
<AlcarDM> Bucket stops, "Bucket?" looking confused
<Ghenn> "I've got to go. I've got another asshole like this one to deal with."
<> "Wouldn't happen to know your way to the dungeon would you?"
<Darien`> (( sure, just follow the signs, duh ;) ))
<Ghenn> "I'm working on that. He was supposed to show me." *nods to the guy stuffed in the oven*
<Ghenn> "Now, before he comes on back, let's get moving."
* Ghenn heads out down the hall
- Quote 5341
<AlcarDM> Ok .. the books have interesting titles like "Vaen - gods or someting else" "Necronomicon" "Relevations 2 - Just When You Thought it Was Safe To Sin" and "The Life And Times of St. Dogbert" but the one that catches you're eye is a smal journal, intitled, and in it's own glasss case
- Quote 5342
<AlcarDM> Tamil: "Then... then maybe mentioning his old name would be a bad idea?"
<Theliar`^> "Think I'll attract attention?" With a grin
<AlcarDM> She looks at you and just nods, looking a little pale. "Maybe."
<Theliar`^> "Exactly! That's the plan! I hope to get everyone's attention, infact, I hope the entire cosmos come knocking at my door... Maybe then I will get some answers."
<AlcarDM> Tamil stares at you "And what would you do if it did?!"
<Theliar`^> "Ask it a couple questions..."
<AlcarDM> At that exact moment, the door shatters inward and two men with small crossbows burst into the room. They're wearing black cloaks, shades, about 6" tall and dark air .. they could be brothers.
- Quote 5343
<AlcarDM> Tamil spins around, startled. The one man levels his crossbow at her, the other points his at you and says "No sudden moves."
<Theliar`^> "I don't plan on moving... You could knock."
* Theliar`^ leans back and tries to relax.
<Theliar`^> "Infact, I think I require even the cosmos to knock.. Did I not just say that Tamil? Tell them I said that."
<AlcarDM> Tamil just stares at you like you're insane
<AlcarDM> the 2nd MIB, who addressed you, says "You're getting dressed, and coming with us. Now."
<Theliar`^> (( I just read the diary of a murdorus megolomaniac writen on skin in blood, and she thinks i'm only insane? ))
<Theliar`^> "You are mistaken, I am in the tub right now, You must work on your tenses... Time doesn't like it when you mix them up..."
- Quote 5344
<TassPassedOut> I have a GM irl who wants to run amber
<TassPassedOut> got any tips for a new amberite?
<BadNastyBadBadBad> TassPassedOut: Don't trust anyone!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Beware random people who are in any way important to the story! They are probably Oberon in disguise!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Amberites never die, no matter how dead they seem! Always assume they are alive and plotting your death!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> If they really are dead, you don't lose anything, and if not, it may save your life!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> I have just given you several of the trade secrets of surviving as an Amberite!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> There are more, but if I told them to you, I'd have to kill you, and replace you with a shadow.
<aslhk> The most important tip: One can never waste time plotting and implementing evil plots!
- Quote 5345
<aslhk> the best advice in the world
<aslhk> read both series! Then read them again!
<aslhk> THEN READ THEM AGAIN!
<aslhk> THEN READ THEM AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Oh yeah
<BadNastyBadBadBad> And DON'T TRUST CORWIN, HE'S A LYING FUCK AND THE WHOLE FIRST SERIES IS HIS PROPAGANDA!
<BadNastyBadBadBad> And Merlin is just completely nuts
<BadNastyBadBadBad> So you can't trust him, either
<BadNastyBadBadBad> Not to mention a total tool
<BadNastyBadBadBad> If you didn't notice what an utter and completely toolish tool merlin was when you read that series
<BadNastyBadBadBad> read it until you do!
- Quote 5346
<Baliadoc> you're the crazy religious guy, right?
<Baliadoc> that's a horribly generalized impression i got of your character from watching you play for 3 minutes, btw :)
<Baliadoc> but it was a good segway into asking that question...
<Alcar> Sam is not insane. He's a vampire who believes he's an angel of death out to deliver the lords vengeance on the unbelievers and convert the rest to God.
<Alcar> It began as a 2 am joke about a vampire in a larp and turned into an Amber pc by the sort of logic that a vampire christian would be an angel.
<Alcar> It made sense at the time, I think :p
<Alcar> He's only tried to kill one pc so far, though.
<Baliadoc> i like the idea that you try to make sense of your ideas. that's funny
<Baliadoc> he sounded cool, though :)

* Alcar chuckles.
<Alcar> An early-summer run opening for alt-rock heartthrob Pete Yorn confirms this. Frustration with crowd indifference contributed to an unfortunate incident at the Indianapolis show, in which Grandaddy opened with a new song entitled "Play Whatever You Want for About Six Minutes."
<PlayerZero> sounds like fsz running a D&D game :P
* Alcar has run entire sessions like that. I just tossed in scenes and such and made sense of it about 3/4 of the way through the session. Was quite fun.
<PlayerZero> oh that reminds me of FSZ's game with me and firefly
<PlayerZero> me firefly and spaceman
<PlayerZero> we were so into our characters, that he had to practically blow up the tavern to get us out of it

<AlcarDM> The 2 MIB are leading you and Tamil to the palace of the Emperor of Quan, or more accurately to the One in Grey beneath said dnugeon. For reasons having to do with the non-existant survival instinct that lets people become adventurers - to say nothing of PCs - you're going with them.

<AlcarDM> Tamil nods, stepping beside you. "we

<_____> Fenrick: He already saved your life twice, you fucking ingrate
<Sammael> All the more reason to kill him!
<Fenrick> (Its nothing against Dane, but something against his player. The twat.)
<Sammael> Anyone capable of saving your life is also capable of ending it.

<_____> I was like: I wonder what he does with all the bodies
<Sammael> Sam "Well, the cut isn't that bad, really. I'm sure you could get a blood transfusion, but you don't do that, do you? Oh, well."
<Sammael> he wraps them in copies of Watchtower like one does a fish in paper and leaves them in dumpsters, of course.

<Dane> "Okay, how long can you stay away from them?"
<Fenrick> "Well, if we don't move maybe they won't see us, eh?"
<Dane> "That's the stupidest fucking thing I've ever heard. If we somehow manage to get there before you fucking die, I am going to slap you."

<_____> He takes out what looks like a large wallet, and produces a card (big and thick, like a tarot card).
<_____> He stands there motionless for a few moments, apparently not doing anything
<_____> And there's someone else standing there now. You're not sure quite how she got there... you were busy watching Fernando. If you didn't know better, you'd say she just appeared out of thin air.
<_____> Delcine is tall (just over six feet), and lightly built, with short, jet-black hair and blue eyes. Her features are sharp, her expression peaceful and relaxed yet strangely vigilant. She bears a striking similarity to Fernando, particularly in the way she moves... like a cat, stalking its prey, no motion wasted, or inadvertant.
* Dane just stares, for a moment, then his face breaks into a big grin. He is obviously elated at this turn of affairs.
<Dane> "Finally! Finally someone pulls somethink fucking WORTHWHILE out of thin air!"

* HerrBraunIII tries to estimate food and shelter costs for the goatman.
<FSZ-Storytellin> Guys, this goat looks to have some serious psychological problems judging by his deep voice, menacing eyes, and chainsaw. By the way he is cutting things costs look very high HerrBraunIII.

<AlcarDM> To Recap: Ryu and Ghenn are heading into the dungeons to meet the Figure in Grey. Theliar is heading back to his hotel after meeting a former nailfile who gave advice, among other things. Lee is, uhm, doing her hair. For an hour or two. Until her player gets here. Lirk and Orgg are't doing anyone's hair - yet.
<AlcarDM> Good recap?
<AlcarDM> alright, then.
<AlcarDM> The *cough* of Time turns, moments come and pass, leaving mans that become groans. Groans fade to sighs, and even sighs are long forgotten when the *cough* that gave it *ahem* comes again. In one age, called the alimony age by some, a check yet to come, a check long bouced, a wind arose ... and the chances for a second meeting were dashed as the dragon farted rater obscenely and proceeded to eat dinner with his fingers.
<AlcarDM> No, not that dinner you sickos. Geeze. Oh, and the shadow might cover all, and believeme, Mr. Dragon isn't the kind you'd want to meet in bright light. Oh, and the wind blew south as Time giggled and had mad sex with Einstein somewhere past C to both gratify him and cause his brains to melt out his ears.
<AlcarDM> And now, on with the show!
<AlcarDM> There's the robert Jordan intro thingy.

<Theliar`^> "So there's a rule that you need to look familiar to me?"
<AlcarDM> Death shrugs. "You couldn't see me as I am. Not even your gods can do that. So I appear as someone you knew."
<Theliar`^> "oh... I can't say I knew you... Just that you look familiar... Ah well..."
* Theliar`^ sighs and leans himself forward on the table and looks around
<Theliar`^> "Who can?"

<_____> He looks you in the eyes as he says this, and you sense a seriousness about him that you have seldom seen before.
* Sammael considers that, then says "Sometims it is necessary. For example, with cockroaches, it tends to be the only solution. And with cancers. It is hard to cherish things that are no more if they are not protected."

<Ania> "We should go speak with him, and insure that he doesn't pose a danger to anyone."
<Ania> (( heheheh ))
<AlcarDM> Lirk: "Watercolours in black?" hesitantly.

* Alcar is debating having Tamils wound get worse and do a whole LOTR spoof :)
<_____> You should!
<_____> We should have to go on some quest to get something to heal her
<Alcar> except it would be 9 horses without riders :)
<_____> And orgg and lirk should start showing strange symptoms!
<Alcar> well, you do need to visit Hariet. Or her successor if she's already dead :p
<_____> We should have to get hydras blood or something
<Alcar> tinfoil, the pedestrian relative of kingsfoil!
<Alcar> "You need to get the sleeve of a brown dress under the mnight of a new moon from a sleeping maiden"
<Alcar> magical ritual item finding should be like a demented scavenger hunt :)

<Gemm> eat me.
<_____> You're not my type :<
<Gemm> yes you are.
<_____> I know *I* am my type :P
