CB D & D on fridays or saturdays... (in Off-topic)


Coheed February 1 2011 2:06 PM EST

Alright so OB is the DM and I figure fridays or saturdays are the best days to play (time TBD). So if youre for sure 100% wanting to get in on this, post in this thread. I dunno if we can have too many people cuz the most I ever played with was 5 but our party had like 12 - 15 characters and I couldnt really see having a bigger party than that but hey I havent played in 10 years so who knows, you guys can figure it out. We'd be playing 3.5 btw.

Kefeck [Demonic Serenity] February 1 2011 2:13 PM EST

Are spectators allowed?

I don't really know what I"m doing but I'd like to watch and learn and maybe participate in the future.

Coheed February 1 2011 2:19 PM EST

definitely kef. If you wanna learn the ways of the game watching others play is the best way. ANOTHER NOTE: I believe we are going to use ventrilo to communicate to each other so everything flows a little more smoothly.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 1 2011 2:39 PM EST

spectate! :D

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 1 2011 3:08 PM EST

I'm down, but I don't have a working mic at the moment. Saturdays are probably better for me, but either will work to be honest.

Admiralkiller February 1 2011 3:13 PM EST

I am in!

QBOddBird February 1 2011 3:23 PM EST

Friday afternoon/night (CB time) is the time I have consistently available; Saturdays are hit-and-miss on whether or not I work at night, but should be available some of the time.

So if you guys want, we can start this Friday the 4th, rolling characters and such so we're set up for our first session. I also have Saturday available this week.

Demigod February 1 2011 3:29 PM EST

I'm down, but I don't have a working mic at the moment

x2, but I can pick one up.

And Kefeck, you might as well jump in and play. My only RPG knowledge came from a game called MechWarrior that I played circa 1994. If I'm going to slow the game down anyway, you can help me bring it to a grinding halt.

QBOddBird February 1 2011 3:31 PM EST

Also, here's a link to a free online dicetool!

Coheed February 1 2011 3:58 PM EST

I can def do Friday but Saturday is a no go. Army weekend

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] February 1 2011 4:03 PM EST

You don't need mics PCs and from the past have learned they actually make the process run slower. :P

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 1 2011 4:23 PM EST

I should be able to come for a Friday Night session CB time. I would like to participate if possible. Are we confirmed for using Vent?

Coheed February 1 2011 4:27 PM EST

Either vent or irc and stay true to txt based

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 1 2011 4:32 PM EST

i prefer txt based to be honest but i am ok with either.

QBOddBird February 1 2011 4:37 PM EST

I'm going with txt-based for this first session, since we are just rolling characters. They won't even be placed in the world yet. It's just a "get together and get set up" meeting, really.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 1 2011 4:54 PM EST

I'm good most Friday nights. This coming Friday the 11th I'll be at one of my very last drills left though. Then I think I'll have 1 more Friday I'll miss in march for the same reason.

QBOddBird February 1 2011 5:08 PM EST

Also:


Verifex has graciously allowed us to use his HoboWiki again to store our character sheets for the D&D campaign. :D

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 1 2011 5:11 PM EST

OB what level are we starting at and what restrictions are there for class, how many points for stats and all those other good things so we can start getting an idea setup beforehand and a few of us can just finish up on Friday then help others get setup.

Coheed February 1 2011 5:33 PM EST

I'm gettin excited

QBOddBird February 1 2011 5:35 PM EST

We're going to be starting from level 1.

There will be only Humans, Dwarves, and Elves.

There are Wizards, Fighters, Barbarians, Paladins, Clerics, Rangers, Rogues, and Druids.

Basically, come up with a name, a preferred race, and preferred class for your character. We'll work from there on Friday. :D

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 1 2011 5:39 PM EST

no mage or sorc? And what about half-elf?

Demigod February 1 2011 5:47 PM EST

Whenever this thread goes cold, please bump it with basic class info to help us decide in advance. I'm sure most of us will hit up Google, but a bump is a bump.

Coheed February 1 2011 6:11 PM EST

Great class list OB. But half elves, halflings and half orcs are a must

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 1 2011 7:45 PM EST

OB mentioned in chat earlier he wanted to keep the race and class choices limited for this one in order to keep things nice and easy for this time around since there are quite a few of us who haven't played before.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 1 2011 7:56 PM EST

Wait we're doing mass joining then? I want in then! ^.^

Coheed February 1 2011 8:01 PM EST

ah I see. For people who need a little help click here

Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] February 1 2011 9:44 PM EST

Like a lesser man(slayer)said to me several times after dropping my pants...
Aight, I put on my robe and wizard hat.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 1 2011 9:53 PM EST

Billy - Human Cleric

domains: healing, magic

QBOddBird February 2 2011 12:18 AM EST

no mage or sorc? And what about half-elf?

There are wizards! No half-elves.

But half elves, halflings and half orcs are a must

Nope


and yeah MP, it's wide open...I figure if we have more people than can do 1 campaign reasonably (I'd say 6-7 is pretty large for an adventuring party) then we can simply run 2 campaigns.

Coheed February 2 2011 12:45 AM EST

Coheed - Human - Barbarian - lvl 1

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 2 2011 2:14 AM EST

Saravus
Dwarf Male Paladin

BadFish February 2 2011 3:13 AM EST

I'll make one tomorrow. Thinking i'm gonna go rogue. Wizard if I don't like what I come up with.

Vicious Cat February 2 2011 3:30 AM EST

Do spectators need a mic?

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 2 2011 3:30 AM EST

s/Magic/Glory

(more deity appropriate)

Just for reference, if you're even a little bit evil, you'll be walking around with a serious sun tan.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 2 2011 3:44 AM EST

Xeno - Elven Rogue

I'll figure out the rest of the details when the whole party gets together. I'm going to need some help obviously since this is my first time playing a real game, I wanna go with whatever is going to end up helping the party out the most.

QBOddBird February 2 2011 10:37 AM EST

Do spectators need a mic?

Nope, and for this first session, there won't even be mics since we'll just be rolling up characters and figuring out how many players we've got. :)

But when we've got Vent or Mumble or w/e we use going, I expect nobody will have a problem with letting others listen in on our game.

Coheed February 2 2011 11:14 AM EST

So what time we doin this on friday

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 2 2011 11:47 AM EST

8pm server time I believe is what was decided on. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

BadFish February 2 2011 12:52 PM EST

So, so far we have rogue/paladin/barbarian/cleric? If this is a correct listing I'm going to go wizard, but are we just choosing name and class at this point? I assume we'll roll stats when the game starts, or is everyone already rolled?

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 2 2011 1:00 PM EST

Nah so far we're just choosing names race and class, we're going to roll when we all get together on friday.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 2 2011 2:01 PM EST

Here's a decent 3.5 character generator tool I found online that I've been playing around with if anyone wants to use it.

http://www.pathguy.com/cg35.htm

Coheed February 2 2011 4:57 PM EST

Is ob gonna run a character too or just dm?

QBOddBird February 2 2011 6:53 PM EST

Just dm. 8-9 server time is fine with me

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 2 2011 10:12 PM EST

I'm fine with 8. The question is how long does everyone think they can go.

Demigod February 2 2011 10:35 PM EST

I'm skimming a D&D wiki (dungeons.wikia.com) to learn the basics, and I'm leaning to human cleric like Novice. My backup is dwarf fighter.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 2 2011 10:40 PM EST

Naesha elf druid. Don't expect me to heal though.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 2 2011 10:59 PM EST

Demi: go fighter, we'll need it

Nat: I've got healing covered...

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 2 2011 11:30 PM EST

btw I got pdfs of the players handbooks if anyone wants a copy just let me know

QBOddBird February 2 2011 11:42 PM EST

Same. The players handbook is a must

BadFish February 3 2011 12:06 AM EST

Gorion/Human/Wizard

Coheed February 3 2011 12:53 AM EST

I might have to do my character at a different time I work on friday

QBOddBird February 3 2011 1:11 AM EST

I can def do Friday
Wut wage happened

Coheed February 3 2011 1:15 AM EST

this is the only friday i work ever but its fine cuz i know how to make a character i just need someone to witness my rolls....btw howre we doin rolls

Demigod February 3 2011 1:25 AM EST

Omega, I believe there's a dice program on the defhoboz.biz site where we can monitor rolls.

Demigod February 3 2011 1:27 AM EST

Let's ignore the fact that I can't find it...

King February 3 2011 1:30 AM EST

Demi - http://defhoboz.biz/dice.php

Coheed February 3 2011 1:35 AM EST

dang thats sweet

Vicious Cat February 3 2011 2:25 AM EST

The dice-rolling thing is neat!!

Could I get a look at a PHB please OB or Xeno?

tbh it's too late in the night for me - I used to play back when D&D became AD&D so I'd be quite interested in watching, but at 1am... :-(


Gunny Pew Pew [Red Permanent Assurance] February 3 2011 2:33 AM EST

There are some who call me....

Tim/Human/Wizard

QBOddBird February 3 2011 3:55 AM EST

I will be borrowing a former dm's system of rolling for stats, so it will be a little different...i can ask an onlooker to take your place during the stats section if you like, or I can fill the role for you, your choice :p

Coheed February 3 2011 4:05 AM EST

That's lame

QBOddBird February 3 2011 10:53 AM EST

That's lame

You don't even know what it is yet

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 3 2011 11:06 AM EST

I'm sure he was talking about Gun...

OB needs to cough up with some more detail dammit!

Demigod February 3 2011 11:11 AM EST

I have a feeling he was talking about not being able to roll for his own character. If so, see if you can arrange another time to do it together.

Coheed February 3 2011 12:40 PM EST

Yes I was talkin about not rolling my own char unless you want to give me 18 str 18 dex and 18 con OB then I'm totally down

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 3 2011 3:24 PM EST

Really low stats hurray!

Admiralkiller February 3 2011 4:43 PM EST

Human/Fighter

Admiralkiller February 3 2011 4:44 PM EST

or maybe Dwarf/fighter..not sure yet

QBOddBird February 3 2011 5:00 PM EST

Yes I was talkin about not rolling my own char unless you want to give me 18 str 18 dex and 18 con OB then I'm totally down

Yeah, the whole reason I'm using the method of stat selection that I am is to prevent min/maxing, so no

Coheed February 3 2011 5:20 PM EST

So what's the method

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 3 2011 5:33 PM EST

Lescan/elf ranger
By the way, have we decided IRC/vent/other yet?

QBOddBird February 3 2011 5:38 PM EST

By the way, have we decided IRC/vent/other yet?

First session is just going to be in Chat.

I am familiar with Mumble, and haven't used Vent, so I'll try to figure out vent but if I can't then we'll go with mumble :)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] February 3 2011 5:40 PM EST

someone would have to host a vent server or pay for one on vents sites. if someone already has one that would work as well.

Demigod February 4 2011 10:08 AM EST

I'm at work and some sites are blocked. Will someone please post a link to a decent character sheet that I can print off to fill in stats tonight?

Demigod February 4 2011 10:56 AM EST

Um. Thanks.

that's a Vent server.

Feel free to join to ask questions or find out what's planned, and make sure you pop in tonight at 8 server time for our character creation session! :)

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 4 2011 6:40 PM EST

bumpity bump bump

QBOddBird February 4 2011 7:58 PM EST

Starting the character creation process in about 10 minutes.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 4 2011 8:02 PM EST

I updated the D&D portal section on my wiki. I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to go through all the trouble of adding semantic goodness to all the DND pages so they are pimptastic like the CyberGen ones, but I did add categories for each of the existing DND chars on there. In order to edit certain pages, you have to register an account on my wiki. It just means using a valid email address (to prevent lots of spam)

Dungeons and Dragons Wiki

If you have a better name for the CB campaign going on here then Feb '11 campaign, let me know and I can change it. Also if you need any other wiki help let me know, I'm a bit of a wiki expert.

QBOddBird February 4 2011 9:14 PM EST

Thanks Fex! You are teh awesome!

Pwned February 4 2011 10:16 PM EST

i want to spectate too.

Vicious Cat February 5 2011 2:27 PM EST

I had to retire before it started last night - have we a log somewhere?
And will there be one next week (although hopefully RL won't be as stressful next week and I'll be able to stay awake)

Admiralkiller February 5 2011 4:55 PM EST

I do wonder OB how we are going to proceed with this many players and who, what, where, why, when and how...oh wait did I say how?

QBOddBird February 5 2011 10:37 PM EST

I do wonder OB how we are going to proceed with this many players and who, what, where, why, when and how...oh wait did I say how?

who

The players

what

D&D

where

Vent / CB Chat

why

Because we all want to!

when

Friday at 8 server time next week!

how

Probably kind of slowly. Patience will be a rather important virtue with 10 players.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 5 2011 10:38 PM EST

and lots of RPing!

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 5 2011 10:40 PM EST

My rping question:
Do I say /me does blah blah blah in a such and such gory manner
OR
Lescan shoots at a kobold with an arrow.?

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 5 2011 10:41 PM EST

You can do either. whichever style suites you best.

QBOddBird February 5 2011 11:39 PM EST

Lescan shoots at a kobold with an arrow.

This.

You take the action, I'll tell you what happens - if you say what happens/gory action/etc you are assuming you will succeed, and you are assuming that things will take place the way you are expecting them to.

Basically, you tell me what you're trying to do, and then you roll for it.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 6 2011 7:22 AM EST

*Xeno runs behind Billy (novice) and pleads with him to save him and not let the kobolds stone him to death!*

QBOddBird February 7 2011 11:12 PM EST


Dear everyone:

If you are still trying to decide how to use your available feats/skills, hurry up! I will consider what I have from you to be permanent tomorrow at midnight server time.

Demigod February 7 2011 11:19 PM EST

Demi is happy with his selections.

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 10 2011 1:17 AM EST

So everyone ready for the next instalment soon?

Coheed February 10 2011 3:07 AM EST

Definitely ready. I can hardly wait

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 10 2011 7:55 AM EST

1... more... day...

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 10 2011 9:31 AM EST

Can't wait! Gotta update my back story today as I keep forgetting to do that.

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 10 2011 10:09 AM EST

T_T not gonna be here...

Demigod February 10 2011 10:19 AM EST

That means that when we break out of jail, we're leaving Nat behind. :)

AdminNemesia [Demonic Serenity] February 10 2011 10:22 AM EST

Or it means I'm not in jail in the first place.

QBOddBird February 10 2011 10:44 AM EST

Or it means I'm not in jail in the first place.

Nope, you are

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 10 2011 11:29 AM EST

I'll just go drag a sleeping nat out of jail ;)

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 10 2011 11:30 AM EST

Also, is defhoboz.biz not loading for anyone else?

Demigod February 10 2011 11:44 AM EST

It's offline.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] February 10 2011 11:58 AM EST

ah thanks.

Coheed February 10 2011 2:03 PM EST

soooo defhoboz.biz is down

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 10 2011 3:13 PM EST

I'm sorry, I'll fix it ASAP.. stupid internet

Coheed February 10 2011 3:47 PM EST

Thanks fex

Coheed February 10 2011 6:28 PM EST

Shouldn't everybody have their characters filled out on the wiki

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 10 2011 6:43 PM EST

Yeah shouldn't they?? ;)

Ok, I fixed the server. Also I turned on Mumble on my server too. So if you want to connect to Mumble, just download mumble here:

(This is the latest mumble client with sweet features)
http://mumble.info/snapshot/mumble-1.2.3-rc2-13-g492566d.msi

And then connect to my server at address: defhoboz.biz port:64738

Good luck!

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 11 2011 3:50 AM EST

16 hours or so to go!

QBOddBird February 11 2011 3:31 PM EST

So are you guys wanting to go with Mumble or Vent?

Demigod February 11 2011 4:17 PM EST

I vote Vent, as I've already installed it. Laziness wins.

QBOddBird February 11 2011 5:11 PM EST

The cbDnD room is open for funtime, feel free to come in and chat pre-gametime.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 11 2011 5:23 PM EST

I vote mumble, as it's free and I'm not even playing in the D&D game but I can join in and listen. lol

Also I set it up explicitly for you guys ;P

{WW]Nayab [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 11 2011 6:09 PM EST

Vent is free too and more of us have vent than mumble.
However, dedicated server is tempting...

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 11 2011 6:13 PM EST

Vent is free for up to 8 people. Last I checked, you have 10 people playing this game.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] February 11 2011 6:20 PM EST

Fex>JS

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 11 2011 6:29 PM EST

I don't care either way, but I'm going with mumble.. took like a minute to download and install, don't whine that you don't want to use it just because you already have vent installed.

Demigod February 11 2011 6:38 PM EST

don't whine that you don't want to use it just because you already have vent installed

Play nice...

QBOddBird February 11 2011 6:55 PM EST

Vent is free for up to 8 people. Last I checked, you have 10 people playing this game.

Fex wins with this point, for consistency's sake lets use Mumble so that when all 10 are present, we can all be on simultaneously.

QBOddBird February 11 2011 7:24 PM EST

We're starting in half an hour, if I can get Mumble to work

If not, we're going with Vent

QBOddBird February 11 2011 7:50 PM EST

starting in 10 minutes, come to the Chat / Mumble! :)

Unappreciated Misnomer February 11 2011 7:51 PM EST

Even though Im not playing, is there anyone willing to compose a whimsical tale of the journey?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] February 11 2011 7:58 PM EST

I'm sure there will be a chatlog if someone is willing to save it.

QBOddBird February 12 2011 1:33 AM EST

Don't forget to update your sheet with your EXP, gold, and items! If you have questions about what those were, please let me know and I will happily answer them.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 12 2011 1:54 AM EST

I have both the chat-log and a massive uncompressed voice recording log that I'm going to have to compress or chop up into sections.

Coheed February 12 2011 2:25 AM EST

How do you want us to add our Hp for lvling

QBOddBird February 12 2011 2:57 AM EST

OW - you'll roll for it, I'll work it out with you at a later point

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 12 2011 5:33 AM EST

And so our story begins: Somewhere in a remote prison a hapless Warden loses track of one of the prisoners he has sent down into to his dungeon. Not wanting to soil his own hands searching through the decrepit halls and dark corridors, he devises a plan to use a group of prisoners to do it for him. He sends out his guards to select 9 prisoners to send down into the dungeon and locate this lost prisoner.

These 9 prisoners all comply with the guards when they come to their cells, although one unruly brute spits in one of the guards faces and receives a direct punch to the face before he gives in and decides to go with the guard. They are each filed into one large bare room with nothing but a beat up old chest in the corner. Before them stands the warden who explains to them his plight and has asked them for help in order to apprehend the lost prisoner somewhere in the depths of the dungeon. With almost no resistance the group decides to agree, seeing as they have little other options at that point. They are each given a weapon to protect themselves and are filed one by one down a dark corridor leading to the dungeon below.

Armed with only basic weapons and two torches, Billy the cleric decides to cast light on his dagger to help illuminate the room, and they all venture further into each room to see what they can find. The rooms are all dark, with torture devices everywhere, this was no mere dungeon, this was a torture chamber. Vials of an unknown substance can be found throughout some of the rooms, which a few members of the party decide it might be a good idea to hold on to.

As they head towards a locked door in one of the rooms, they are surprised when a Carrion Crawler sneaks up on them from the darkness. The party quickly dispatches this vile creature walking away from the battle completely unscathed. They bust open the door that was blocking their way and they continue deeper into the darkness.

They come upon a room that has nothing more then a desk and a locked chest. With nothing but a rusty shank, the rogue makes due and picks the lock on the chest to find nothing but a small ring with a black stone on it. He is unsure what the ring is so he asks some of the other prisoners what they make of it, it turns out a few of them recognize some of the markings on it and it seems to be some sort of ring infused with the power of electricity. Finding some possible significance in this ring the rogue decides to pocket it in order to keep it secret and keep it safe.

While the rogue was busy with the chest the others searched the room and searched the drawers of the desk that sat in front of them. Inside the desk they found a diary, and it just so happened to be the wardens own diary. Inside it explained in detail his true plan, he knowingly sent prisoners down to the dungeons to die so he could take the money normally used for the prisoners and keep it all to himself. He thought of it as a way of cleaning up his prison and keeping empty cells for even more prisoners to be brought in.

They decide to head to another room to search some more, in this room they find a body strapped down to a torture device. Curious, one in the group decides to poke it to see if it is still alive, it shrieks in horror so loud that even those not in the room were able to kill it. Because it is restrained they quickly kill it and chop its head off to quell the terrifying shrieking.

It is at this point two clever little elves notice something odd about the stone wall that stands next to them. After some examination they realize it is not just a plain stone wall, but it is a secret passageway. They force the passageway open and descend further down the stairs into the darkness, the whole party then files down one by one through the narrow staircase. Towards the bottom they begin to see the silhouette of a man, and the cries of girl.

The man greats them and asks them what business do they have with him, to which the party replies they have been sent down to search for a lost prisoner and nothing more. Seeing that the girl is indeed in danger one of the group bravely says "You no hurt girl!" as he lunges at the man. The man casts a shielding spell on himself protecting him from the onslaught of attacks being launched at him, even shattering the rusted blade of one of the warriors trying to kill him. But without fail, this group of prisoners prove to be far more then the man can handle and he is quickly killed.

After searching through the mans belongings it is discovered that this man was indeed a necromancer and has been toying and experimenting with the prisoners sent down to him by the warden. After unsuccessfully trying to bash the lock on the cell door of where the girl was being held the rogue steps in and tries his hand at opening it, and while difficult luckily the lock was not damaged too much and he is able to crack open the lock and release the captive girl.

The party sits and decides what their next action to take will be, and they decide it might prove well to attempt at taking out the warden with the ring they hold in their hands. They venture back to the dungeon entrance and upon reaching the door they are told to disarm themselves and exit one by one back into the room in front of the warden, all disarm themselves but the two elves who decide it might prove worthwhile to conceal their daggers on themselves. With them the bring up body of the dead necromancer, and the frightened girl.

Amazed to see that they have all come back unscathed the Warden decides what he wants to do with them. When he is shown his own diary that explains all the evil deeds done deep inside the dungeon the warden decides to strike up a deal with these former prisoners. The ring and the diary in exchange for their freedom. The former prisoners begin to chat amongst themselves deciding whether or not to take the deal. Most of them seem like it is a fair enough exchange and decide to accept his deal.

Unable to hold his rage for the evil deeds this warden has done, Billy the cleric tells the warden he'll never take this damn ring from him then lunges at him and grabs a hold of him with the hand that is wearing the ring of electrical surge. Shocked, but hardly injured the warden draws his blade and hits billy in the side of the head with the blunt side of the blade, knocking him to his knees. It is at this time that the barbarian lunges at billy in attempt to take the ring from him. Amazingly while still on his knees Billy manages to throw the barbarian off of him as he still struggles to stay up.

One of the party apologizes for the actions of the other prisoner and asks if it is alright if the deal for our freedom could still be reconciled. To their surprise the warden agrees, he is impressed with this group of prisoners, nay adventures, and he no longer wants them in his prison he has other uses for them. He offers each one a chance to become a "Probationary Guard" and deal with unfortunate assignments he is given that he would rather not leave his post to deal with. Some accept, each for their own reasons, others just simply ask for their freedom and walk out the door. Billy furious with the events taking place slams the ring down on the table and promptly leaves the room heading for the exit, and a few others deciding it was best for them decide to do the same. Upon exit of the Prison a strange mark appears on each of their left hands, not knowing what it is Billy covers it up and he and two others head towards the nearest friendly temple.

One of the elves who decline, heads off by himself towards the woods. To those who have accepted the wardens offer, they are paid their wages upfront and each given a weapon and armor to choose from and they they are released from the prison. Upon exiting they each also receive a strange mark on their hands they cannot recognize, but being the merry few that they are they all decide it best to head towards the nearest tavern to get drunk and forget about the trials they had just overcome.

And this is where we left off, the party has split up, half headed for the nearest friendly temple, the other half headed towards the local tavern to drink themselves to sleep, and one lonely Ranger off into the woods to be alone in his element.

What are the strange markings on each of their hands? What does the future hold in store for this talented group of individuals forced for a short amount of time to act as a team, now separated and torn apart by various beliefs and moral standings. What dangers and adventures lie ahead for all of them? Well now.. that tale is for another time..

[Forgive me if I forgot anything, I tried to include most of the details I could remember without looking back into the chat log/listening to the recording, unfortunately I forgot most of the character names and exactly who took what action, so I made due with what I could remember. Let me know what you guys think about my chapter 1 summary so far.]

Its very good Xeno, I'd suggest uploading it to the wiki.
Two things, The necromancer greeted us, not greated.
And i was the member who apologised for Billy's actions to reconcile the deal.

OW has a poo hand.

You mustn't forget the hand of stench

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 12 2011 12:11 PM EST

Thanks Nayab, I was wondering who did it, I completely forgot. Haha and I knew I was bound to make some sort of grammar/spelling mistake at some point.. didn't expect it to be between greeted and greated though.. but what do you expect I started writing the thing at like 5am. >_< Will fix upon uploading to the wiki if enough people think I should.

Hahaha I was going to mention the poo hand but I couldn't think of how to work it in to make it as epic as it actually was, again will work that into the story if I do decide to transfer it to the wiki.

Thanks for taking the time to write that.

Unappreciated Misnomer February 12 2011 2:15 PM EST

nice adventure, started out really good and i did not expect it to turn out in that fashion. I hope there is more to come.

Xenogard [Chaotic Serenity] February 12 2011 2:23 PM EST

Hahaha, I'm re-reading through it and there are so many mistakes that must have came from me writing a sentence then changing it up and forgetting to take out certain words or just completely overlooking what was previously written. When I upload it to the wiki I'm going to make some edits to it, so I'll let you all know when I get around to doing that. I will also flesh it out a bit more and add whatever I might have forgot to put in.

Nice, thanks OB.
