    If no one at the top of the round intends to attack or threaten the other side, I can deal with entire round for this extended posting period. Also, if the party is agreed to flee, then combat ends, and you get to decide how you wish to travel through the forest. The options I see include: ...

    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...

    I'm very sorry to hear about the family emergency. Below our my answers to your questions.The party chose not to talk about Pradize to Bohumil, so I'm not sure what this question refers to. I think I know the answer to this. Bohumil advised that the party not bring up the true purpose of the...

    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...
