From Burton: [Re: Group Activity]
Sorry my team is doing nothing. I suppose I could RP
playing cards or something in off times, but I'm content
to sit and watch, and react when something heats up in
GM: Yeah sorry too. Its best to have the dwarf and fae
outside the town so your doing a good job in itself
and there will be plenty of time as a party to do
things later on. In fact, its sooner than I thought
due to some good thinking on some players here :)
From Burton: [Re: GM typos]
> [A few months later Unali comes walking up shocked to
*heh* I hope you meant "moments" there. :)
GM: Yes that was a silly mistake on my part guess I
was real tired that night :).
[New Stuff - current situation]
[Quick Recap Timeline]
Time: 5:15-5:30pm currently...
Just a quick note. The events at the apple stand actually
occured before update #49 (ie hearing the music that
is currently. I just did that as a post active event).
[Meanwhile Group 2 - Damon's [Docks]]
[Damon and the others finish their stew when they spot
a familar face come on deck of the Wave Dancer. Its
Damon: "There..there is Seyed. It looks like hes
safe and just busy with the ship. I suppose this
means the ship hasn't at least been captured. I
suppose he docked without any incident."
Balrog: "So now what...the ship is safe...do we
go find Cholan? Or do we try to get on board?"
Damon: "Good question...not sure how this city
is during dark ..but that leaves us at least
an hour or two more to decide. Then when
it gets dark we can head north to find Cholan
and at least let the others know."
Balrog: "But it might not be safe here..."
Damon: "True..let's find a quiet alley or corner
we can stick to."
[Meanwhile Group 5 - Bertram's...[Tavern]]
[Its been about 45 minutes now Bertram has
been talking to the Guards. They have lessened
their tension and restraint and have become a lot
[Meanwhile Group 1 - Cholan's....[Hiding]]
[The dwarf is soundly sleeping as well as
Valgor is taking a nap at this time to rest up.]
[Meanwhile in Group 3 - Aren's]
[The group walks toward the shoreline all the while
Aren, Unali and Xian were congregated a bit
during the trip but Aren mingles with the group
most of the way. Tension stirs in the group as
the moment becomes close to meet the agent.
Farseeker and Dias seem to be the most nervous of
the group and slightly on edge for some reason.]
[The party seems to have walked about 15-20 minutes
now and traveled at least 1.5 to 2 miles from the
city. The closest building is a old one room hovel
from some peasant that may still live there but
is unclear. No one was seen during the travel
aside from sea gulls and other birds.]
[The sound of the flute wafts in the air and the
group starts to home in on it.]
Farseeker: "Trembyl this illusion how long does it
Trembyl: "Not long we'll have to be quick in our
[Suddenly dias huffs and the party notices his pack is
on the ground and things have spilt out]
Dias: "Sorry it fell..." [Dias cleans up the gear
while looking toward the shoreline and glancing
back at the direction of the city]
Xian: "We'll stop...wait"
Dias: "No don't stop on my account...I'll catch up"
Aren: "Nah ..its no big deal.."
[Dias cleans up the rest of his gear and starts
walking again with the party]
Aren: "Now remeber let's not have any weapons out
or in hand. He'll take it as a hostile action"
[Aren says to all]
Xian: "Good idea..."
[A few minutes later the part can see a figure leaning
up against a limestone 'rock' that is the height of
a tall dwarf at best. Its a human who is playing
a flute. The person has not detected anyone at this
time. The party notices a lot of tracks in the
areas they travel. The boy did say teens and young
folk use this area as a sort of lovers area.]
[The cliff up ahead is only about 5 feet from the
human and you can see the sea below. At this angle
and distnace your not sure of how high it is though]
[Farseeker clanks his sword in a form of attention
getter against his other metal objects and it startles
[The human stops playing and quickly stands to his feet.
He has no weapons on him that are obvious and he
fits the full description with eye patch and all. This
must be him].
[Aren dons a cloak around his head - unsure as to why
the other members think]
Farseeker: "hmm..excuse us.."
Human: "huh? ..what ..who are you?" [he eyes the group
and sizes everyone up]
Xian: "We are friends...we seek a person that we believe
to be you. Do you recognize this?" [He points to
[Trembyl hand covered on his other hand casts the illusion]
[The 'ring' appears on his finger and he holds it up for
the human to see. The human eyes it but is at least 3
feet so gets a bit closer and then a sign of acknowledgement
yet risk dons on his face]
[Aren uncovers his head and reveals himself]
Human: "Your..duk..your name is .." [he stops before he
speaks cautionsly not to give his position away]
Aren: "Yes...I am Duke Aren...you recognize me?" [The
human hesitates and nods.] "As my comrade Xian has stated
we are friends. Do you recognize the ring?" [Aren
brings attention back to the ring before the illusion
Human: "Yes...then you must be on for a particular reason.."
[Then a sign of horror or sadness comes upon his face]
"No!..the king didn't send another party did he?!" [Trembyl
notices the illusion fades and 'puts' the ring in his
pocket to 'hide' it.
Aren: "Another party?"
Human: "You mean you don't know? Your the third party to
come here in the last two months..very unusual and
very .." [he stops and his hand moves from his flute
to drop it to the grounad and in a flash he grabs
a dagger from his back side and charges Dias!]
[Dias reacts as well and now has a sword in his hand]
[Instantly Aren side steps. Xian grabs his war Staff
and heads for Dias. Farseekr looks puzzled.]
[What seems like years in a slow time slowly it seems
the Agent and Dias charge each other. Xian tries
to intercept. Unali closes in as well.]
[Before anyone can react Dias swings at the agent
wildly but the agent is able to dodge and quickly
side swings his dagger at Dias who is knocked back
but still on his feet. The Agent turns around
back to the shore and Dias charges again as
the Agent backs away. Xian swings at Dias but
Dias's fast charge makes the blow miss. Dias meets
The agent who grab's dias's right arms twists him
around and with a swift kick kicks him forward but
in this case forward is toward the cliff. The
agent slips on the edge but tries to move away
now only less than a foot. Unali closes in with
Aren as well but things are occuring so fast its
hard to keep track of ...the agent kicks again
and the agent loses his ground and falls!]
[Everyone gets to the edge to look down only taking
one or two seconds. Suddenly a yell from below
comes from a familar voice..but not Dias's]
"Hey guys i can't hold...hes slipping...help!"
[Everyone sees Thig! Hes trying to hold on to
Dias but dias is flailing and trying to break free
or at least gain control of the situation. The
problem is a faerry is no match for the weight
of a human so its a certainity that Thig will drop
[All of this occured within 3-4 seconds and was
too quickly for anyone to react due to positioning
aside from the above.]
Xian: "I can help..but" [he looks at the group]
"do we want him alive? ...I can levitate"
[Xian quickly states]
Dias tries to punch Thig but Thig is using a cliff
side as leverage to hold on to Dias. At least
you know where Thig is now he must've been trailing
everyone through the town].
Remeber questions to the agent can be given as well.
The Cliff is about 40-50 feet below
