     Game Update #309a in sequence (file #511)
     Admin notes: Supplment update.
     [Recap]     - None
     [New Stuff  - Current Situation]

     -------------------------New Stuff----------------------------

       From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
         As FisherKing is not yet buried Z'leyra takes a feather and
         gives it to Caladan saying "For the use you propose FisherKing
         would want you to have this."
         "Hmmm...wonder if your spell works with dragon skin? That would
          certainly distract the airship crew if a dragon overflew them a
          few times."

         "Sorry guys, I didn't have enough magic to learn how to
          communicate with the hippogriff. I doubt I can control it well
          enough to have it ridden. I may try to have it follow me
          towards the airship, maybe it would distract the crew, even
          fight for us if the crew attacked it." When she goes she will
          indicate to the hippogriff to follow her.

          To Ben'Dar "I will talk with you about Ticasi and horses later,
          when we have time to converse."

          To Jordi "Yes, as a healer I would like those items. I hope
          that I will again have an eagle as companion, the hood would
          then be useful when in towns."

          "Certainly it would be a good idea to prepare to fight if we
           fail in downing the ship."

          To Thig and Kaylle "Fly up using cloud as cover till close
          then go invisible and help distract the crew or get the jar
          if I cannot. We are going for the jar, not to fight."

          If we have to leave the hippogriff behind she will release the
          fascination on the hippogriff when we leave Clima.

          Shows the Chalcedony stone(s) to Thig and Kaylle asking if they
          could tell if it was enhanced or enhancable, if partially
          enhanceable can they tell which parts?

          As Z'leyra strips off her clothing and equipment in preparation
          for shapechanging she says "We will have our best chance of
          winning by dropping their ship into the sea. If we do not
          succeed then the fighting here will be brutal. Prepare."

          "One aspect of my plan that I do regret is that any prisoners
           or innocents on the airship will be slain along with the
           crew. We might not be able to find or identify them. I doubt
           we could rescue them even if we find them."
       GM:  Will transfer the Healing stuff from Jordi.  As to ben'dar
         that conversation is in the future :) As to the stone we
         talked about that in ICQ.  Not enhanced.  

       Caladan: "I'm honored to take the feather from one so brave as
         your bird.  I will not dishonor him.  As to the dragon thing.
         I could do it.  But this should be stealthy as much as we
         can do.  Otherwise we may force them down to sea level and
         then our chances decrease.  But I will consider it."

       [Thig and Kaylle agree to help in distraction.]

       Thig: "On prisoners.  I could fly into the ship through magic
         and quickly traverse it looking for any prisoners.  If there
         are some we can attempt rescue before or after the jar is
         taken.  Kaylle will have to be the distractor as I search
         the ship but I'll only seconds but it shouldn't take too
         long to find any unconscious or trapped persons."


       From Ben'dar: [Re: Actions]
          OOC to Z'leyra/Alex:  Sorry, I was thinking our conversation
          was a future conversation, taking place when we're on the
          ship sailing home.  You had mentioned earlier that you told
          Ben'Dar your brigand/horse story "Over the coming days".  I
          should have prefaced my reply similarly.  :-)

          Once Ben'Dar understands what's going on (stupid language
          barrier!), he decides to plan for the worst case scenario. He
          figures that the flying ship is going to have their most vital
          weakness (the magic jar) well protected, so he thinks the
          flying mission may be risky and may not succeed.  He says to
          Jordi, "If they don't succeed, I agree with you that we should
          prepare for a fight.  Let's prepare to ambush them if they reach
          the cave."

          OOC to GM:  Could the warships' siege weapons be used inside
          the cave?  For example, aim them at the entrance so that if the
          bad ship does enter, we can fire whatever big weapons we have
          on them before they can attack?  Is there anything else in the
          cave that might be useful in an ambush (netting, barrels of
          oil, etc)?

          Ben'Dar will do what he can to prepare for a possible fight,
          along the lines of the OOC questions above.
       GM:  No your correct that conversation will be on the ship.
         Z'leyra just forgot that :).  No objects in the cave can help.
         There are boxes and crates that could be used but that would
         take some time.  The weapons on the ship could be turned to
         the cave entrance yes.  Good plan.  

       From Chion: [Re: Actions]
          "Why should we attack them while they are outside the cave?
           We should let them come in. Archers can go up to the area
           where the Gargoyles were. Fighters can be aboard each of the
           other ships, perhaps loaded arbelists can be aimed at the
           flying ship after it is docked... No doubt there will be at
           least one more priestess I'll need to kill... Hmmm... what
           else should we consider... Ah yes, no doubt the ones coming
           back will be of relatively high moral, since they no doubt
           just looted a city or two. So they might have some wounded
           and or some folks that aren't all that ready to fight if
           caught by surprise in a confined space. Perhaps we should
           put a few heads on pikes as a welcome? Naw... these guys
           probably wouldn't go for that. I don't think the plan to get
           the jar off the ship will work, since it seemed resistant to
           magic when I tried the other one. Maybe we could figure out
           how to use the one we have to get one of these two to fly?
           That might work... so much time to consider such things..."
           >From the rambling loud mind of Chion.
       GM: Ack.  Good words.    See below.

     Time: 11:29-11:44am                           

       * Ship: Taking Merchant ship
       * Layover: Leaving today after loading loot
       * Sink Ships: Near cave entrance
       * Magical Creatures: Destroy creatures by throwing into sea.
       * Loot Question:
         GM: ERROR! I goofed.  On the loot question I had 2 duplicates
          of Ben'dar and Z'leyra counted twice.  So with that said
          here is the correct setup for this vote.

          A) Keep personal loot profit and party profit.
          b) Keep party profit minus personal property amount.
            So that anything taken personally would not take away
            from party treasury.  Thus if you make 300 gold and
            party share is 40 gold then you get no party profit but
            keep the 300 personal property.
          C) Personal: A or B but up to the player

           Unali/Wout     - A           Thig/Wayne     - A
           Caladan/Tom    - B           Damon/Bob      - B
           Farseeker/Ryan - B           Z'leyra/Alex   - B
           Bendar/Chris   - B           Xian/Scott     - C
           Chion/Marcel   - ?           Jordi/Sergi    - None

           Option A - 2   Option 2 - 5
           Option 3 - 1   No vote  - 2

           Majority = 6 [of 10]

           GM: So there is no majority yet.  Chion and Jordi needs to
             vote on this.  Jordi had no comment but both could make
             the vote a majority.  If you don't understand the options
             let me know. 

     This is just a supplement update.  Its not a real update.
     Since there are now two votes for ambush I wante to do this
     before actions took place.

     Airship:  1) Ambush in Cave  2) Fly and take out 3) No comment

       Aren         : 2            Balrog      : 1
       Damon        : 2 *          9 Diplomats : 1
       Suresh       : 2            Chion       : 1 *
       Triest       : 2            Kasha       : 1
       Xian         : 2            Ben'Dar     : 1 *
       Kaylle       : 2            Jordi       : 1 *
       17 Diplomats : 2            Caladan     : 2 *        
       Farseeker    : 2 *          Trembyl     : 2 *        
       Z'leyra      : 2 *          Thig        : 2 *
       Cholan       : 3            Unali       : 3 [Not posted yet]
       Neva         : 3            Marta       : 1

     * Core Player group.

     Vote: 1) Ambush - 15  2) Attack in air - 28  3) None - 3
     Total - 46 [Majority is 24]  28 for Attack in air 
     Total -  9 [Majority is  5]   6 for Attack in air

     Both majority of Total and Core Players have decided the attack
     in the air plan is the best.


      GM: Since we do have a schism here of sorts.  We'll go with
        BOTH plans.  The attack in the air will take place and there
        will be an ambush.  If the attack in the air fails the
        climans will likely result in 2 things.  Retreat for
        reinforcements or investigate their hiding place.  If they
        retreat there is still option of giving chase by the captured

      Damon: "We don't have much time guys.  Four to five minutes max
        I estimate.  The ship from my spyglass looks like its moving
        about 30 miles per hour.  At that rate and distance its easy
        to figure four minutes before they reach here.  So move FAST!"

      Farseeker: "We can prepare a ambush but if we have to do it then
        we are doomed.  The ship will likely send the gargoyles up
        to their roost killing any archers we send.  We know they
        could have as many as 30 gargoyles.  The ship will then send
        a small boat here to this spot to have the curtain raised.
        If we ambush here they won't enter.  So we'll have to leave
        this area and hope they don't look into the sea cave or
        discover our archers first.  So we need to plan this but there
        isn't time.  Trembyl if you have to use the staff at close
        range for some water or wind magic or if they do enter the
        cave ...smash them with rocks in a avalanche..."

     Triest: "Then how do we escape?"
     Trembyl: "Rocks can move and I can move them again..."

     GM: Ok. 4-5 Minutes to prepare.  If you have specific positions
       or a specific plan of action let me know.  Otherwise as
       stated I'll send archers to the roost with a fighter or
       two.  Send some to the ship weapons.  Send some in the
       hallway to attack those who enter the side hole.  Unfournately
       theres not much time to plan it all due to them just being
       seen.  I'll try to enact BOTH plans on monday night.  If
       you can get actions by then do so.  But for those doing the
       ambush no rush.   As I'll likely do the air stuff first and
       even if that fails it'll be a update or two before i get
       to any possible ambush situation so theres no rush.

    Expect update monday...
