      Game Update #-16 in sequence (file #23)

      Admin Notes: None.

        From Arawn: [Re: Actions]
          Enhanceable Gems:

          I'm good with Fremea's suggestion. So...

          1st Choice...   Tourmaline
          2nd Choice...  Ruby

          Dark Ruby and Jeweler skill:

          Unless someone speaks up to specifically ask Arawn not to
          work on this stone please assume Arawn does so during IBT. I
          can work on the details when I send you my IBT list. If anyone
          does object then Arawn will skip working on the stone.

          And in response to the possibility of damaging the stone and
          lowering its worth, Arawn will pay the full 80SC to the party
          if this should happen.

          Profit from sale of treasure:

          The details of this can be worked on later if you wish but
          Arawn will give his share to help the ex-slaves/liberation.
          Hopefully between the High Elder's farmer contact and the
          freedom fighters Arawn can find a way to ensure that people
          are being helped in the best possible way, taking care of some
          things in the short term but making sure the money will go
          towards furthering long-term goals of both freedom and equality
          (non-human and human alike). Although he'll likely be too busy
          to regularly check up with these individuals he'd like to
          maintain occasional contact for their benefit.

          Letter/Number characters:

          Sorry for not replying but waiting on a new laptop. Currently
          I can see 106 on email.
        GM: Ack. Ruby work on - Roger. To helping others you will have
            to remind me if I forget.

        From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
          Fremea would be fine with this so far. So, that just leaves
          Unali, Z, Arawn and Kiet with a second choice?
        GM: Ack.

        From Kiet: [Re: Actions]
          Kiet just shakes his head at this suggestion.  "We are...
        GM: Ack. This should be the post you wanted ignored.  But it was
            a good speech! :)

        From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
          <I thought this is what had come of the rolls, if I am wrong,
          then we can change things, right now the only one that Fremea
          wants is the Sapphire the most.>
        GM: Ack.  Yes Kiet lost the roll on the Meteorite.  I was still
            hoping for a duel to the death.  Darn.  I think Kiet might've
            smoked Z'leyra before she knew what happened! (j/k I dunno
            but would've been a fun fight).

        From Arawn: [Re: Actions]
          Arawn's second choice would be for one of the Rubies.
        GM: Ack.

        From Kiet: [Re: Actions]

          Please ignore my previous post.  It was a reaction to posts
          that came after one of Scott's updates, but I didn't see all of
          the text in that update.  I went looking at the website and saw
          all of it. I'm still not sure what happened to all the text, but
          it's there...

          It was not meant to be offensive, but role playing.  If you
          were offended I apologize.
        GM: Ack. No problem.  Sometimes I don't get any pnp list posts
            (other pnp - Wout's list).  It just is funky that way.  I
            may see replies and go looking for them.  This list seems
            to be more reliable.  But both are same servers so who
            knows.  Flukes happen.

        From Fremea: [Re: Actions]
          Not offended. Just wanting to make sure everyone is
          getting something good for themselves too. I was making sure
          you were not offended. ;)
        GM: Ack.

      [New Stuff]

          [Octagi 5th, 1634TH]
          [Sivas, Marentia]

          [Time: 8:43:11 pm - Sivas Marentia]
          [No role playing]

          Actions?  Comments?

          Next update...Monday?  Maybe when next IBT done

          GM: A short update just to collect posts and continue.
              I've heard from Wout.  HE has been busy.  H gave
              me his IBT and some other input including input
              on the magic activation spell proposal.  He also
              voted for Z'leyra's adventure.  He will continue
              to be busy for the next few months but I know
              enough of Unali to work with it.  Plus he tends to
              send emails not actual posts.

          GM: New Players - Some tips -

              * Dialogue - As with books we use "dialogue" for role playing
                so "".  You can paraphrase with '' marks.  If you are unsure
                how to say something you can do without the ""s and try
                to make the point across but role playing is always good.
                Be advised though for combat dialogue takes time.  By the
                time you say "I dare you to move forward and raise your
                sword in front of my friends or you will die!"  By the
                time you get out the first 3 words they could have fired
                a bow and killed you.  So speaking in combat can be
                dangerous and timely.  My rule of thumb is I actually
                count how long it takes for me to say X words.  Since
                a phase is 3 seconds I do up to 3 seconds and then cut
                it off to the next phase.

              * Death - I don't kill just for spite though I may have
                wanted to! :)  I kill on stupid stuff.  So you are
                sure you want to walk across that acid bath and past
                those magical pikes to get the golden bird on the
                platform?  Ok.  Sure.  If you die then you die.  It
                is actions like that which tends to kill not me. :
                It is really hard to die in my games.

              * Interaction.  Post to the public list for anything.
                If you are to comment to a particular person in
                private send email to them and CC me so I can see it.
                You can talk privately in list as long as you don't
                care what others see on it.  Our players are mature
                enough that they don't take that info into account.

              You guys are free to post anytime.  I will fit you
              into the game soon.  I'm just busy working on the IBTs
              and such.  It may be a few more weeks if you don't
              mind waiting.  Once I fit you in though you can
              act as your characters.  But now your free to play
              as you.  We welcome comments and such on anything that
              is being talked about.

          GM: Enhancement Post Script

              Some have talked about this in email.  It has been
              reminded that rites can be learned in various ways
              beyond shops, libraries and such.  Organizations like
              Guilds, Secret Societies, clubs, lodges and such are
              also good examples.  Just a reminder based on the email.

              Another thing is if a NMI is already magical then
              no rites are needed.  So if this is the case then
              we can use the Core Enhancement spell.  If this is
              in your core starting rites list then it can be removed.

          GM: My schedule -

              * Finalize Kiet's post IBT character sheet
              * Start on Fremea's IBT
              * Start on Unali's IBT
              * Clean this old computer off of pnp and move to new computer
              * Start on IBT time events
              * Start working on Adventure Outline

          GM: IBT Time

                Octagi 5          Back to Marentia night time
                Octagi 6-31       IBT Time
                Novehas 1-14      IBT Time
                Novehas 15        Adventure Hook/Starts

                This is 40 days between adventures.  Keep in mind
                this is November so it will be cold.    Please
                do NOT start IBT until you get final sheets sent.

              Everyone should know this by now so will remove this
              in next update.

          GM: IBT Process

                 Player        IBT Sent in       IBT Processed
               Fremea               Yes               #2 to do
               Kiet                 Yes               Done (#1)
               Unali                Yes               #3 to do
               Zabyra               Yes               Done

               I got to do Kell's myself but will wait to see what
               others do in case I need to.

          GM: Width of posts:
              Just taking notes on what folks can see (ie how many
              characters can one see on their reading devices - crt,
              ipad, email, browser.)  So I can figure out a average
              width for future posts rather than 80 columns.

                Player          Width of device     Type of device
              Arawn                   106                email
              Fremea                  195                Screen
              Kiet                     68                Ipad
              Unali                   130                Email
              Zabyra                  120                Email
              Z'leyra                 186                Email

              Ok. I have enough info on this.  Average looks to be
              138 with range from 68 to 195 (range of 127.  Kiet
              since you seem to be out of place here if the update
              goes longer can you adapt or would it force the ipad
              to go back and forth which can be tiresome going
              left/right?  Let me know   I can keep the current 80
              format if so.  If not I could stretch it to 138? But
              I want to make everyone happy.

          GM: Old Treasure

                None-Magical Ruby to cut - Arawn

              Based on the tons of cross crossed emails.  This may be
              the final setup.  Is this acceptable?  Kiet I know you wanted
              different ones but do you still want some claim on the others?

              We still have a week or so for the 7/1 Deadline.  So still
              time to iron out the details.

              Once I get the 5 Yes/No on this we'll move on.  If all
              agree then its done.  I will then sell the other goods
              and gems by Kell.  I will then divide it up
