:welcome: to the forum, Keith.

Glad to hear you've enjoyed reading the game as much as we're enjoying playing it so far! :D

Back in the game ... we (the ones that visit several sites on the island) are still moving bodies, right? and we don't know what the Abbot has told the others, yet?

I will watch the advetures of the players here on a daily basis. I wrote the original version of DA: Guardian and DA:Shadowland, in 1992 and translated it into 3rd Ed d20 for Auran in 2000. It is a genuine thrill to come across this game and to 'sit in' on it.

Regards,

Keith
So no pressure, then, huh? :icon_twisted:
Only joking. Welcome aboard.

Aurum should be finind out right about now since I had him go back to see what was going on. I will then have him suggest destroying the bodies.

"If we're not going to burn the bodies, perhaps we should bind them?" asks Kiaphas. "Oh, and who has that gem?"

The fire breathing dwarf has it.

Which frickafrackin gem is it?!

Since Alarian is too nice to ask.


Hello, Keith - glad you're enjoying it. I hate mysteries (except Columbo but then that wouldn't be much of an rpg scenario) but I love the atmosphere of your writing.

The questions we should be asking are these:
Does it have dungeons?
Does it have dragons?
Does it have transients who kill things for money?  Do you roll a d20?

Balgy, where's the text where Neadath reads up on the functions of the gems? I can't find it.

Up ending the bag he tips out a rather large ruby onto the palm of his other hand. The stone is perfectly cut and barely fits into the palm of his hand (oh yes, it's big).

Yes, it's the ruby he's got.

Sounds good so someone needs to tell Auarum whats up and then I can suggest we do soemthing with the bodies and return the gem in the game thread.

I've shifted three more bodies to the big pile of corpses while you guys wait. That's all of them on the ground floor exept for one that's so obscure and out of the way I'm going to make an int roll for someone to see if they remembered it (because you only saw it a few hours ago and I don't think everyone noticed it).
Now bodies aren't easy to move. I mean, it's not always that easy to move injured people after an accident even if they've only got a sprained ankle or something and they're helping. Now imagine that's a load of dead weight that isn't helping at all (in fact the only thing it could do to make your job harder would be to actively resist, which dead bodies don't usualy do). So I'm going to assume that it takes 2 people about 3 or 4 minutes to shift a ground floor body into place. I'll make an estimate on the upper floor bodies in a bit.

So ignoring the bodies that Rogan and the others already shifted before you lot got back I'll say that abour 5-8 minutes have passed (during which time Naedath spoke to Alarian and the beacon lit up).

I'll probably be adding a new post to the notepad thread shortly too :).

I'll be AFK for the next week mostly. Visiting my sister, who has limited internet - and tends to hog what she has. :icon_ermm:

If I don't answer an action in a reasonable time, please puppet Kiaphas for me. Thanks.

My last day online for a while, too, Balgin, but I think I already mentioned that, didn't I?

Anyway, still moving corpses, and looking a pretty lights, waiting for someone to tell me the info from the abbot...
