     Game Update #272 in sequence (file #464)
     Admin notes:  None
     [Recap]     - None
     [New Stuff  - Current Situation]

        From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]                             
          Z'leyra mentions "We don't want to leave the guard
          running around loose. I suggest west."
        GM: Ack.  

        From Unali: [Re: Actions]
          Unali will take a look into the hallways to the south.
          Motion the others to stay back a bit. Bend the knees,
          get into a crouch and take quick peek along the corner,
          head at the level of knees to middle of a standing man.
          Hopefully if someone is there he doesn't expect movement
          so low to the floor. First the first hallway, then the
          second if it is clear.

          If both are clear, she will point to the two doors to
          the north, indicating to the others to open those, and
          move over to the door at the end of the hallway herself.
          She will then listen first and wait until the two doors
          to the north are checked out before opening the door
          here. If there is anyone in those two rooms and she hears
          nothing behind the door she is standing next to, she will
          help out. If she hears something, she will stay by the
          door and try to intercept if anyone comes out.

          If she sees anyone in the hallways to the south, she will
          stand up, (around the corner out of sight of course) and
          signal the amount of guards with her fingers to the others.
          If these guards are coming towards her, she will wait and
          listen for the footsteps until the are close. If she is
          spotted, she will try to take them out any way she can.
        GM:  Ack.  Good actions.

        From Jordi: [Re: Actions]
          Jordi pauses for a moment:
          "If someone has heard the alarm, he/she will follow the
           corridors to warn the climans in the upper levels... we
           must chase he/she. I suggest I can follow one corridor
           with Suresh and Kaylle; Unali can follow the other with
           Chion and Caladan".
        GM: Ack. 


      Time: Estimated  6:47am-7:02am  - Morning Day 22

      [Level 6 - Occurs at the same time on both hallway ends..]

        [West Hallway]
          Xian: "Can you try to hit him again Neva?"
          Neva: "I'll try."
          [Z'leyra examines the tracks on the ground.]
          [Farseeker waits for the results.]

          Aren: "Valgor why don't we head south and support Thig."
          Valgor: "All right.  Lead on."

        [East hallway]

          [Jordi explains the dialogue above.   He suggests actions
           for the group...But unail moves first.]

      [Level 5 - Jail cell area]

          [Triest enters the first room where the Medical crew
           were locked up.  He divides up the prisoners two
           into each cell and then with the help of the others
           secure them.]
          Nurse: "So you kill all the others and leave us to rot?"
          Kasha: "No.  We'll figure that out later."

      [Level 1 - Outside]

         [As the two gallop faster they seem to make progress and
          catch up to the two female riders.  The females don't seem
          trained riders so go at only a half gallop.]
         Qorz: "Stop! We won't hurt you!"

      [Level 6 - Occurs at the same time on both hallway ends..]

        [West Hallway]

          [Neva aims and fires her bow again toward the dark form
           down the hallway about 70 feet.  The arrow flies at
           medium range and she hits but again the arrow hits the
           guard's shield.]
          Farseeker: "Still standing. Let's move!"

          [The group sprints forward.  They notice two doors on the
           north side.  But they try to head forward to the guard.]

        [South Hallway]

          [Thig reaches the end of the hallway quickly.  He sees a door
           across the hallway.  He peeks around then realizes he
           is invisible so walks quickly (doesn't fly to make sound)
           around the corner.  There he notices a guard leave down
           the hall and running this way.  Valgor and Aren head slowly
           down the south hallway..]

        [East Hallway]

           [Unali crouches and mves around the corner.  She looks down
           the hallway which is long and goes into darkness.  The
           lantern is dim here.  Either not used often or not worth
           lighting.  She sees nothing...as she starts to back up
           something whizzes past her right over her.  Something back
           behind her skitters to the floor but she doesn't look back.
           If she had been standing she'd surely been hit.]
          [Jordi and Chion see something small hit the ground near the
           north wall and bounce to the floor.  Looks like a small
           round rock among other rocks?]

        [West Hallway]

           [As Farseeker/Z'leyra run forward with Neva and Xian in
            behind.  Xian finishes loading his Arbalest.  He says..]
           Xian: "Stop.  Move to the side, I'm firing."
           [Z'leyra and Farseeker slip to the sides as Xian takes a
            firing stance and tries to aim at the form down the hall.
            Though he doesn't have better night vision he can now
            see the form at least at this closer distance.    He
            fires but the bolt just flies and doesn't hit anything.
            A clear miss by 2 feet..Farseeker/Z'leyra continue...]

        [South Hallway]

           [Thig fires his repeating crossbow at the female guard now
            approachine his direction.  But it misses and hits a foot
            away from the female guard's feet in front of her.  She
            is wearing only Leather, carrying mace and a shield.  But
            she sees the dirt fly and shocked stops.  She looks around
            but sees nothing.  She raises her shield to her chest level.
            She takes her mace and swings it in a wild 60 degree arc
            in front of her...]
           Guard: "Intruders here!" [She yells at the top of her lungs.
             She isn't heard by those in the west hallway but is heard
             by Aren/Valgor..and others..]

        [East Hallway]

           [Unali looks down the hall.  Instincts tell her to dive to
            the ground but that could cause her time getting up and
            into weapon stance.  She fights the urge.  She looks further
            down the hall and sees a glint of something.  A form about
            120? feet down.  The nearest lantern to the form is about
            25 feet ahead of the guard and dim.  She tries to see
            other forms but doesn't see anyone.]
           GM: Per listed actions to take out the guard if spotted.
           [Unali looks back at Jordi and raises one finger.  Then
            she turns back and charges full speed at the guard..
            She puts her daggers on her belt and pulls out her
            handle sling from her belt.  She grabs a sling projectile
            from her belt pouch.  She realizes the sound of the
            object over her was also a sling projectile.  so the
            guard isn't using high powered missile weapons.  Since
            bows/crossbows have a different sound from their flight.
            She aims at the lantern which is nearest the guard and
            on the ceiling.  She aims and fires at it but misses.
            She hopes to take it out and go into darkness before
            she gets to the guard...]

        [West Hallway]

           [As Farseeker/Z'leyra approach...They notice the guard
            is now standing in front of some door which is closed.
            It is a female in leather carrying mace & shield.
            The shield now has two arrows in it.  She gets into
            a fighting stance.  But Farseeker is faster and runs
            right at the guard.  With both hands on the great
            sword and leveled at the guard's mid section he
            plunges the sword right into the chest of the guard
            and impacts through tissue, bone, lungs.  She is
            killed instantly doing 25 points of damage.']
           GM: Sometimes you feel sorry for npcs.  Poor guard was
            not trained for this stuff.  New to combat. CEL0
            CEP42.  Barely out of boot camp.  :<

           [Z'leyra notices a door to the south and one to the
            north where the guard was standing near.  Maybe
            guarding.  Both hear movement from the north room.
            Suddenly, a door down the hall opens and a well
            uniformed man comes into the hall.  He notices the
            others in the hallway then yells..]
           Male: "Intruders!  Guards!"
           [Then he backs into the room and the door slams..]

        [South Hallway]

           [Thig fires his crossbow again at the guard.  But
            it hits her shield and bounces to the ground which
            again startles the guard.  Aren/Valgor hear the
            skirmish and round the corner..]

        [East Hallway]

           [Jordi rounds the corner slowly but doesn't see where
            Unali and the guard went..down the dark hallway..]

           [Unali aims again at the lantern and fires.  She hits
            and the lanter shatters and the flame is snuffed out
            as some part of it falls to the ground.  The dark
            goes into further darkness.  Almost pitch black.  But
            she hears another rock fly by her and hits the wall.
            She pulls her sling back and pulls her daggers.  She
            runs straight to the guard's last known location.]

           [As Jordi begins to move down he suddenly hears a door
            behind  him open and some footsteps.  He turns but
            sees its not the door behind him but the door to the
            far right.  Suddenly the small group sees 4 guards
            enter the hallway...Two females and two males.
            One is wearing chainmail, the others leather.  The
            one with chain has a sword nad helmet.  One leather
            clad guard is using mace, shield nad helmet.  One
            is carrying dagger on belt nad mace.  The last
            guard has daggers on belt and bow in hand.]

           [At the time Unali handles the guard..]

           [Kaylle backs away... a few feet.]
           [Caladan aims his loaded composite bow at the Bowman
            and hits doing 3 points of damage.]

           [The Bow returns fire aiming and hiting at Suresh.
            But the arrow doesn't penetrate the leather armor and
            does no damage.  It just bounces off his chest.]

        [South Hallway]

           [Suddenly upon hearing the yell a few seconds pass.
            Then a door at the end of the hallway is open. Three
            people exit into the hallway.  One male is dressed
            in chainmail.  He has a helmet and holds a pike
            in his hand.  The other guard is well dressed in
            some tunics under his Ring mail.  He holds a arbalest
            in his arms.  The third is very striking.

            She is wearing a full dress.  Its hard to tell her
            armor but looks like Ring possibly.  She is rather
            young and striking.  She couldn't be no older than
            18 or 19 if even younger.  She has a amulet on her
            chest.  She has a sword in a sheath on a belt that
            doesn't seem to fit with her.

            Suddenly Thig's spell goes out and he becomes visible.
            As Aren and Valgor run forward they see the three
            emerge down the hallway.  The female in dress smiles
            and Thig sees that.  She begins to raise empty hands...

      [Level 1 - Outside]

         [Qorz/Talz easilly overtake the female horses.  They
          both grab the horses and stop them.  The females try
          to fight back with their hands but are quickly subdued.]
         Qorz: "We mean you no harm. "
         Female: "We want to return to our village."
         Qorz: "You live nearby?"
         Female: "Yes.  We were captured when we came into this
           area heading south toward some friends on the coast."
         Qorz: "We are only here for the others not you.  We won't
          harm you.  We surely would not have freed you otherwise."
        [The females look at each other and consider that.]
        Qorz: "Return with us and we'll let you go when we leave
          the island."
        Female: "But you are not friendly to climans.  We saw the
          bodies in the cave [main cave]."
        Talz: "We are only killing in need.  We mean the citizens
          no harm.  You have no choice here.  Return and no harm
          will come to you.  We swear."
         [The females see the new weapons on the two men.  Weapons
          they got from the main cave supplies.  They look at each
          other and nod.]
         Talz: "We won't be long."
         [As they turn around the females look back.  One female
          lifts her head and stops her horse.  This startles the
          two men.  She then says..]
         Famele: "Look!" [she points to the top of the mountain]
         Talz: "What the?"
      [Level 5]

        [Triest and the others leave the jail cell areas and
         shiver as they find the hallways empty.  They head
         back up to level 6..]

       [Jordi I didn't do some of the actions you requested since
        things changed dynamically.  But now there are targets to
        choose.  You can help Unali or attack the guards with
        the others.  As a reminder the guards:
        #1, Sword, Chain, Helm
        #2, Leather, Helm, Mace, Shield
        #3, Leather, Dagger, Mace
        #4, Bow, Leather, Dagger]

       [Unali you should reach the guard next update..]

       [Farseeker's group -
         The g listed is the dead body.
         Doors at D4 D9 D14 [Movement heard inside at D9]
         Doors at F4 F11 [The man entered from F4 then re-entered]

       [Thig's group-]
        [Just luck of the actions/random draw who goes down here. :<]

   Eeek.  Where's Trembyl?  I lost him.  Hmmm :)    I'll put him
   with Aren/Valgor to balance the numbers.

   I may go into phasal movement but for now I just handled it
   as above.  Which is pretty much the same way.  Due to movement,
   dialogue and actions that is one full minute.  Not quite the
   exact full time it would take but gets it going.

      Time: Estimated  6:48am-7:03am  - Morning Day 22
