    I wasn't assuming that anybody except Rogur would stealth it up during our retreat. In fact, the more attention the main party draws to themselves, the more likely it will be that any hypothetical pursuers will miss the fact that one of our number is nowhere to be seen.

    Assuming we are still in initiative, both Sai and Varis will delay until after Konstansz and Yrisz take their move actions into the forest. Once they do, Sai and Varis will stay with the main body of the party, double-moving as necessary, but not running. Rogur will follow suit, except that once...

    Hi Umiushi, I am confirming for the 4-May Memories Remain game. Right now, I'm unable to confirm for the 18-May game, as I currently have a schedule conflict. It's possible it might clear up over the next few days, and if it does, I'll make a note here. But for now, assume I'll be absent. --T

    It turns out that Rogur and Varis both have a Stealth of 11. Rogur can lag the main party a few squares behind and to one side, so if there is any pursuit, he'd be able to spot them. We hope. And I've heard of the tactic you describe, Malk0lm, but I can't put a name to it just now.

    I'll definitely be interested in a short rest, to be followed as soon as practical by two extended rests. But for now, fleeing the monastery sounds good. My proposal: I actually assume the monastery *will* follow us, so I'd suggest that we flee into the forest and try not to get lost until we...

    Thanks for the offer of changing Rogur's move action, Umiushi. I think he'll go ahead and stay in between Konstansz and Yrisz for now, as long as he's not leaving anybody more than 3 squares behind. So, the Hegeumenia has said we can leave, and her exchange of hand signals (assuming she's not...

    Ithelryn, thank you for the reminder and summary of our current mission. One of the problems with long-running RPGs in general, and our PBP game in particular, is that missions go on for so long in realtime that it's hard to remember what the game motivations are. I think this is as good a time...

    Regarding giving up Varis and/or Sai: I see a number of problems with that for Rogur, but nothing that can't be worked through with some good roleplaying. As a player, I'm generally against sacrificing companion characters. On the one hand, it's expedient to simply offer up a companion character...

    As the chaos of the battle swirls around Rogur, he dimly hears Noxias, Yrisz and some of the not-monks calling to each other. Recognizing an opportunity for a breather, he calls out to Sai and Varis, "Oi, hold up a minute." The two glance around and, eyes narrowed and weapons still held at the...

    I don't have time to make a full post today, but here are my preliminary thoughts for the top of Round 8, so the rest of the party can chime in with opinions: * Varis and Sai will pull back from their opponents and move to total defense * Rogur will call out a couple of sentences more or less...

    I'm back in town and catching up. Rogur's vote is to flee, then negotiate, in that order. Sai's far more interested in fighting, as Umiushi suggested, but negotiating isn't outside the realm of possibility. I don't yet have a good read on Varis, but I'm going to go with negotiate, then fight. Since...

    Hi folks, I'm going to be out of town again the rest of this week, this time for an unexpected family emergency. I will likely not be able to post much, unfortunately, so I'm hopeful that we're in a place to talk rather than fight, since Rogur wouldn't be much help on that front anyway. If we...

    I'm afraid I don't remember which enemy is the homunculus. Assuming it's #3, it sounds like it would be a Bad Idea™ for Rogur to take his attack against it. Since it sounds like we have an opening to talk instead of fight, do we want to take it? At the very least, it would give us a chance to...

    Hi Malk0lm, I had forgotten that the hedges were damaged by your scorching burst. I would guess that it would not be possible to teleport #3 into the hedge itself, although it may be possible to teleport #3 adjacent to the hedge. However, since Umiushi did not specify that the hedges are on...

Chant - Four years later

by Palpatim on 08-08-2011 at 12:39 AM
"One of the first lessons any student of the Art must learn is how to separate illusion from reality," Chant said, as he stood at the center of a semi-circle of twenty students, mostly prospective initiates of the Corona Cor Igne, and therefore Tiefling, but with a few beings of other races. The Bright Kingdom maintained several Arcanae, but several wizards piled their trade as independent agents. and the Flamehearts had the benefit of notoriety, not to mention exclusivity. Tieflings were

Chant confronts Sir Listeneise

by Palpatim on 08-07-2011 at 05:55 PM
"The singing has stopped."

Chant looked up from his search, his breath fogging the chill air in front of him. The icy walls surrounding the party glowed faintly with light streaming through them from outside. Corw'achs looked over at Chant, concern showing plainly on his face, then returned his attention to the western passage, where shapes stirred at the far end, sending sounds of movement toward them. Fear gripped Chant's stomach suddenly, and his tail twitched anxiously.

Introducing Chant

by Palpatim on 11-10-2010 at 11:35 AM
"Chant."

His eyes closed, awareness unfocused, the word fell across his ears without leaving an impression. Breathe.

"Chant."

The word's repetition caused certain of his mental processes to stir, and he felt the tendrils of the world insinuate themselves back into his consciousness, pulling him against his will into the here and now.

"Chant!"

The tiefling's eyes opened, red-gold orbs flecked with obsidian

Introducing "Saucy" Rogur Kalor, ladies' man

by Palpatim on 07-21-2009 at 05:45 AM
Self-assured to the point of arrogance, Rogur earns his nickname from his wandering eye and unquenchable thirst. Apprenticed at 7 years old to a merchant captain in the port city of Imareska, he's been on the sea for so long he can't remember any other life. Rising to first mate of the sloop Jewel of Imareska, he seemed destined to take over as captain until the ship was sunk during an attack just as they left port. Swimming back to shore, Rogur fled and begun trying to rebuild his life. He is his
