    Wow guys, I'm liking how this is going so far. I realize we've only just started this thing, but I'm having a lot of fun with it already. As I stated before, Nicky is pretty full of himself as you can see. He's good at doing the sabre-rattling and banding like-minded people together. But one look at his stats and you can see that wisdom is his real downfall, and quite likely the reason he never rose above a mere leader of bandits. I loved the initial exchange between he and Lucifer - a little on the edge but totally expected between two evil guys. Clearly Nicky, is going to need the wisdom and advice of people like Lucifer to keep his ego in check and make sure things run as smoothly as possible. Keep up the good work Fuzzy!

    Thank you. I will try to keep up the good work and I appreciate your appreciation. I am glad you are enjoying it I am as well. The main reason I needed to post was to inquire as to whether Nicky has simply walked away from Lucifer after making his assurances or whether it is obvious that he is talking to Mondis? If so, are they giving any indication as to whether they want their privacy or not? My first assumption is that they do as they deliberately separated themselves from everyone else, but I could be wrong.

    No no. I'm assuming that Nicky just caught a glimpse of Mondis who is some distance away from the rest of us. Nicky is still there with you and would like to continue the conversation with you and the others. Unless I'm reading it wrong, I think he means that Mondis and his horse back away into the shadow.

    I misread your post. I thought when you said "before he disappears into the shadows." you were saying Nicky was going into the shadows to speak the Mondis. You meant before Mondis went into the shadows. My fault.

    Well guys, here's an interesting dilemma: At this point I'm not even sure if Nicodemos actually has a shop to go to. That's why I was a bit vague on where we were headed. And none of us have any of our equipment either. Doom Crow said he would be posting something concerning that - but so far nothing. Kinda weird playing a D&D game without a DM. It's why I was hoping we could just stand around and gab for a while. But as Fuzzy pointed out, that may not be such a wise idea. So I'm going to put fourth the suggestion that we hold off for a bit and see if we hear from our DM. What do you guys think?

    this may sound redundant, but we could move outside of town to talk.

    Sorry, it had not occured to me that the standing and gabbing was a delaying tactic. I did not mean to derail the flow of the game.

    That's not a bad idea (Taesin's idea that is) - but it may look rather odd for Fuzzy's character to suddenly disappear again. What do you think Fuzzy?

    As long as we can think of a way to lead it that way in character I am good with it. The idea just occurring to all of our characters for no reason at the same time would kind of screw the the verisimilitude of the game. I tend to try to avoid that when possible. It could just be someone metioning the fact that the shop does not likely have the protections in place yet, but the cave would or simply not being where someone would not know to spy would work just as well. A random person hearing muffled voices in a building is more likely than them stumbling across the group unnoticed in the grasslands. My character can always lie and say it was an impromptu party when asked about it.

    I'm the woodsy one. Shall I mention it?

    You mentioning it would work for me. Seeing as my character suggested the shop it is unlikely that he has considered turning around and walking out of the city. Also, seeing as one of his ideas has been accepted he is not likely to suggest a contradictory one.

    Wouldn't it be better if I said something? It is my shop after all. What would traesin's character know about it?

    ...a few minutes later...

    Okay, that was kind of crazy - just trying to keep up with you guys. But I think it works. I'm happy with it.

    Change of location:

    Okay guys, I have taken the liberty of relocating us outside of the city in a place where we should be able to talk more freely. Hope this meets with your approval. I chose to take us back through a different city gate so it wouldn't look so odd - our turning around leaving through the gate that we had just entered. I also chose to put us in the grasslands at an unspecified distance from the city because I was not sure how far we had traveled from the cave to get to the city. But it seemed to me that if we had horses it was probably a distance that was not worth repeating.

    Also, Traesin, in post #33 you mentioned getting up and walking out the door, which puzzles me a bit. To my knowledge, at that time we were still out in the city streets and had not yet entered any building. Not that its a big deal I guess, but you may want to consider editing that.

    Sorry I have not been keeping up. Work schedule was odd and I have had little time to construct a proper post. I will do my best to get something in even when I am strapped for time in the future.

    Okay, so it appears that at this point, that we'll be collecting our keys to the private club and our equipment and then heading over to the club for our meeting. So, unless somebody else would like to do it, or has something else to add first, I'll go ahead and do a little write up on our return to the city and locating the man with our equipment. I won't have time to do this until Thursday evening however. So, in the meantime, if any of you guys any suggestions on this let me know. I know that Doom Crow has been checking in on us from time to time but it appears he is content to let us handle these things for now.
