  • Thanks, rugrsi. A lot of the time I wanted to skip rolling, since the 'lose' consequences I thought of at the time were kind of flat. The BDTP session was great, though. I kind of wonder if a shorted version, used more often, would be more fun.
  • This looks cool and I will be reading it!
  • I guess that's it then, we'll shelve it. If you have comments, I'd love to hear them.
  • Ugh, sorry I haven't been around. I've been job hunting and Christmas is always way busier than I expect. I might be taking a new job soon, in which case I'll have even less time, and I would hate to get started again and flake out again. I can g…
  • (Helina and Gaspard, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) Gaspard's speech and the woman's calming influence definitely keeps the crowd from boiling over completely. The mob breaks up and mills about the garden, discussing what to do next, each House susp…
  • (Kerrik, House of Duval dungeon, Ammeni Side) The man sends a string of insults after his captors (some of them Khalean), ignoring Kerrik for a moment. Finally, he collapses in a corner of the cell, and it seems as if he has been beaten and wounde…
  • Narrate your own success, if you like! If someone is particularly impressed with your point, that might suggest another scene.
  • I've let people get the Buyoff for completing a Key of the Mission, though as kind of a caveat, either buy another Key or give me something (like a scene suggestion, like rugrsi's) that'll give me an idea for where to go from here. The Buyoff is a …
  • That what you had in mind, oliof? Whew, finally got to stab someone! So the plan went off, and they found the other assassin. They'll probably keep him around and confront House Veija (maybe just offscreen). I'm not sure where to go from here, i…
  • (Kerrik, House of Duval dungeon, Ammeni Side) The man smiles again. "Well, you see," he says, voice full of calm, "I am a cook. I love my profession, and I simply can't stand it when dishes are prepared badly. I'm told you Khaleans don't know ab…
  • Hey, a Great Success! And hence a great assassination. Woot. (Helina and Gaspard, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) The last of the party lurches out of the dining room and into the apparent relative safety of the garden, where guards and running to a…
  • (Helina, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) Surprise is easily on her side, and the knife finds its target in the screaming confusion of the festivities, unnoticed by all. Roll: Assassination (I) Adept (+2), plus Gift Dice from rugrsi: #DiceRoller(4d3)
  • (Helina, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) In the panic of the room, Helina makes her move. The blade is kept out of sight as much as possible, but Hanri is close, glancing back as she 'helps' the stumbling Lord. Roll: Stealth (I) Competent (otherwise …
  • Hey oliof, I hope you don't mind delaying a conflict for you, since this was Helina's big scene (finally). Did you mean something like Ruman is angry about perceived symbolism in the fireworks? Since there was just an assassination (or an assassin…
  • (Gaspard and Helina, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) During the quick trip back to the house, Hanri can't help but look at Helina curiously, as if he's always on the verge of saying something. There are a few tense moments as the crowd moves toward t…
  • Okay, so the dinner scene should be next? That makes the most sense to me. redgrog, I think the Khalean assassin's plan is to lean in one of the skylights, say something to Foussaine, and make his move, then run off. Do you want to be up there wi…
  • (Gaspard and Helina, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) Hanri's flight is quite gorgeous, and everyone seems impressed with the show, even the highest of the high, who ogle the flying boy as if he had simply grown the wings and left the party very unfash…
  • Oh, nah, unless you want to impress certain people in the crowd for future work.
  • No problem, I know how stressful moving can be (to another country, though? wow). So, you're going to narrate the fireworks, right? And Hanri's little trip? I was kind of waiting for that.
  • (Kerrik, the River Maire, in transit to the Ammeni Side) The Captain chuckles shortly, a bitter and tired sound. "Very well, Noman. Who knows? Maybe you will see your tribe again someday, if you are smart." The rest of the trip passes in silenc…
  • (Gaspard and Helina, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) Hanri strolls as if he has not a care in the world, looking rather vaguely at everything around him. He approaches Gaspard and Helina, looking curiously at the latter, and seems on the verge of say…
  • Sounds good to me, oliof, I'll leave the narrating to you. I don't think Hanri quite recognizes Helina yet, that's the only thing I want to maintain. I don't mind PvP either, but I think it's best to make it clear up front. Like redgrog says, Hel…
  • Hey oliof, I was chatting with redgrog about just that (strapping explosives to Hanri) and we weren't sure what your Ammenite Eagle looked like. I was imagining it like a manned kite powered by fireworks. Do you want to narrate Hanri being part of…
  • rugrsi, are you still around? I skipped you in the last update, I didn't want to do that twice. If you want to wait/skip ahead to the assassination scene, that's fine, I just wanted to know.
  • (Helina, House of Duval, Ammeni Side) The party continues unabated as Helina's mind whirls. A few people take items from her tray, and she barely notices. She watches the scene, taking more in. There are more people than just Hanri in uniforms -…
  • You can be at the party, if you like. I was thinking someone might be interested in hiring you, probably House Ruman (Foussaine's house), so you could be an invited guest, perhaps doing fireworks demonstrations. What do you think? You can probabl…
  • Man, this was brutal. Do you still want to do the Battle versus Guerrilla Warfare check? This was pretty even, and since you have one more Harm level than he, his side gets one bonus die. If your side wins, the captain will still hold you hostage…
  • Down to the wires now for this guy, anyway. Ammenite Captain Bruised[V][V][V] Bloodied[V][] Broken[] Pools, V I R : 0/2, 1/2, 2/2 Clearly weakened, the Ammenite sits in a defensive posture, stabbing forth with the blades capping his weapon, look…
  • He still thinks he has a chance - using up his last Vigor point now. Ammenite Captain Bruised[V][V][V] Bloodied[V][] Broken[] Pools, V I R : 1/2, 1/2, 2/2 The spear-tip sinks in, and Kerrik is rewarded with a cry of pain from the Captain. Clear…
  • Oy! Another bruise, this time to the Ammenite. Ammenite Captain Bruised[V][V][V] Bloodied[][] Broken[] Pools, V I R : 1/2, 2/2, 2/2 The move works, and Kerrik can see the man's leg twist painfully underneath him before he makes contact with the …
