From Kiet: [Re: Actions]
If Kiet sees Arawn has the book,
Kiet offers "Would you like me
From Dorhak: [RE: Actions]
This has become serious! We
found a dead human nearby! Now we
From Kiet: [Re: Actions]
Zleyra...you are the only
character that knows what the horses said about
the snake. Gonna say anything to the rest of us?
Arawn found the book...is he going to say so?
Basically, the rest of us can
only react to these things by presuming unless we tell each other.
Are there other things?
GM: Ack. Horses just reacted in
fright and that was about it. They did what they
do move away from the creature. Its obvious
Arawn found book to those who look. But you have
a point there. POV and rping is important. ;)
Part is my fault in that I tend to forget one
detail in every update. I always say 'oopps I
forgot' but it happens. But yes players could react for sure. :)
From Z'leyra: [Re: Actions]
Z'leyra says in Marentian "These
animals are skittish about there
From Raddok: [Re: Actions]
As Dorhak speaks to the group
outside, Raddok translates both sides
[Ma 3rd, 1636TH]
[Time: 4:35 am Besam, Eastern Lands]
Kiet sees no other of his Lemasan
comrades stirring anymore and bows back to the
main cave. He sees Arawn holding the book as the
Alfar listens to the outside voice.
Kiet offers. "Would you like me to
place a Glamour on the book to hide what it
really is? Or put it in a bag and Glamour that if the book is resistant."
Gnorf yells out, this has become
serious! We found a dead human nearby! Now we
will need to investigate this and my rum will get
too warm tonight! Surrender now and we'll not smoke you out.
"Serious! SERIOUS!? Weve been
chasing the humans that we think killed that
other human, though that is no loss. He tried to
enslave my kin, stole from me, then brought us
here, to wherever this place is. He received his
reward, but his murderers then stole from
him! They are mine to do with as I please, as
their actions have cost me dearly in gold and
effort. As for the humans that are with me, they
are my crew and all I really want to do is make
my way back to home and my ship."
As for surrender, I warn you to
reconsider. I am Captain Dorhak Red Wall, made
red from the blood of those who tried to pass
through this wall! We are not your enemy, but by
Dvallin I will not yield to some pre-pubescent
blowhard that doesnt even have the decency to
cover himself properly. I and my crew are not to
be trifled with by the likes of you, nor do I
believe you could even come close to
succeeding. Now, should you wish me to send out
the human thieves for you to take your angst out
upon them, then so be it. Happy to be rid of
them. Once we extract from them what is mine, of
course, with interest, and most certainly including penalties with prejudice!
From the woods snickers is heard when
Dorhak mentions the part of be wary of the wall
and the details. Then more snickers as he insults the outside dwarves.
Dorhak continues, Since you now know
we are not here by trespass, but by treachery,
will you continue your base and gratuitous
accusations and force us to teach you a lesson in
civility or shall we discuss things like, well,
if not Dwarves, then at least like Elders should.
Z'leyra says in Marentian, "These
animals are skittish about there being a snake
nearby." She looks around and if too dark for her
eyes triggers her helm to allow her to see in the dark.
As Dorhak speaks to the group
outside, Raddok translates both sides of the
conversation to the group members close by. He
has noticed that a few have disappeared (probably
heading back to handle the sleeping group with
the book, he earlier had mused, but translating
now kept his attention focused to the group
outside). As Dorhak explains their presence to
the dwarves (dwarves?) outside, he begins to find
himself grinning - their sturdy Captain certainly
knows how to trim the beard (uh, no beards?) of
those strangers outside. Concise words Dorhak
speaks, with no diplomatic padding on them, but
very dwarven. Raddok, grinning, had trouble to
keep from laughing at the straight way Dorhak
spoke. Nice to have things clearly out in the
open, for once - no mollycoddling here.
Well, now, he wonders, as he
straightened up in pride at Dorhak's
forthrightness, would they accept the Captain's
angry explanation, and offer peace - or a truce?
Or would there still be a fight? Thinking of
that, Raddok suddenly remembers the sleeping
enemy behind them in the cave - they seemed
awfully quiet... He finds himself feeling very alert as Dorhak's words end.
Then Raddok notices something. He
moves toward the horses but mainly toward the
bags. He glances at the paralyzed guard nearby
and examines his clothing and hands from afar.
Fremea slips back to the main cave
now that the others are knocked out. No real
threat. She wonders if she should slip outside to scout the enemy?
Raddok kneels near Arawn and begins
to look at the bags of gear quickly.
Outside Gnorf signals his allies in
hand signals. Dorhak can't read them at this
angle and distance. A flurry of signals must be
sent back and forth. Gnorf seems a bit agitated. Dorhak grins.
Gnorf turns to his right and signals to the others.
He turns to the cave. This is
foolish. You are outnumbered. You are in a land
with thousands of us. If you say you are
stranger here we would welcome you but you must
submit first! For our protection and yours!
With that he shifts his shield and
mace in other hand in a stance. He then moves
toward the cave. Dorhak raises his shield and mace as well.
Move aside! I will assess
situation. If further actions need to be done we'll see then.
Gnorf stops 4 feet from
Dorhak. Move aside cousin or this will not end
well. If you consider taking me prisoner this
cave will be overrun in moments! You are in our
land and you abide our rules or suffer. Even
... he spits onto the ground. Bearded cousins who don't know their place!
Arawn listens and is starting to
understand the one known as Gnorf. He seeks
compromise but is determined to get this settled quickly.
Raddok after opening 3 bags nods to
himself. These Lemaitre are not warriors but
miners. Based on their gear they are seeking
resources. This confirms Gnorfs story of raiders
from some place called Harn into Besam. The
Lemasans must want a hold into the rich deposits the dwarves have.
Gnorf stares at Dorhak and smirks at
the red suit. But Dorhak wonders if in a
different place and time these two might be best
friends? Dorhak has forgotten his own past like
Barbosa. A outcast among his own people.
GM: Actions? Comments?
GM: A good place to stop. We'll see how
others react. Happy Christmas to all out
there! I hope the holidays are wonderful to you
and hope you get joy and presents. Will try for
one final update for 2019. Would try Tue/Wed but
its holiday so will try Saturday.
Barbosa 16+4+1+5 [Unclear fully, Revived]
Raddok 1 [1 Healing]
