It's all fun and games until some drunken guy saws your arm off.

As long as there's a surgeon in the group its still fun and games when an arm gets sawed off.

Add in a machinist and a computer scientist, and you'll see a bunch of drunk guys building their own terminator.

Of course, they probably fail miserably and end up with RoboDrunk instead.

I was waiting for the mandatory Evil Dead reference but it never came...sad...

Speaking of Bruce Campbell, I had the pleasure of listening to him speak this past weekend at the premiere for his new movie, Bubba Hotep, down in NYC. Very cool guy, I must say.

Actually, I've never seen any of the Evil dead movies.

Right, you might know Army of Darkness better (aka Evil Dead 3). The series as a whole is a rather odd one. The original is nothing more than a B horror flick, the second is more tongue and cheek, and the third lands clearly in the realms of horror-comedy.

Oh, and Bubba Hotep has Bruce Campbell? Maybe I will go check it out. So far the best movie I have seen this year is Once Upon A Time In Mexico.

"But what about all of those sweet things you said to me?"

"Aw ... that was just pillow talk, baby."

Long live ASH!!

Cadrius, I'll have my equipment finished up in an hour or three and then I'm done.

Good, I'm typing up the IC post as we speak. It's going to take a little while though given that I need to introduce the seven of you.

Done! Sweet Jebus that took a while. Never say I don't try for you guys.

I took liberties with just about every single character but I tried to keep it reasonable and logical. Hopefully there isn't anything too out of place here. The hardest part was fitting the demihumans in but I think it works. If anyone has serious objections before we begin I can edit your introduction as needed.

So have at it gentlemen and lady, and hopefully it'll only get better from here.

Gralhruk said : Aleina is all the things I'm not .
Like doilies and listning and leaving the seat down on the toilet?

"Alright you primitive orc-heads, this is my BOOM SWORD!"

You know what sucks?

I'm a day ahead of most of you, yet I ahve to act like I'm a day behind

Has it begun? Can we start over in the game thread?

I assume the Gnomes gave me directions to the Healers dwelling, correct?

No, as Kingscross lies so far inland the gnomes themselves have not been there. However having watched the town for a while it's not unreasonable to assume that Soradur could make an educated guess; particularly if he saw an injured person being taken there.

Is anyone in sight of anyone else? Or, by some fortune, did we all arrive at equidistant compas points

Cadrius said : No, as Kingscross lies so far inland the gnomes themselves have not been there.
Umm...I don't know what your attitude is to pedants and nitpickers, but the coordinates you give place Kingscross a little south=west of Caderin, only... 25 miles? maybe? (the scale on the MN map is rather grainy) from the Ardune.

However having watched the town for a while it's not unreasonable to assume that Soradur could make an educated guess; particularly if he saw an injured person being taken there
But don't make them injured just to find out

Ack! Part of that is a typo on my part, I was afraid some of those might sneak through amidst the mass sea of writing. If only I had access to a map that I could mess with and post for you guys.

To clarify my bad location: Kingscross is actually located NE of Caderin. If you look at your handy Midnight map and look at the "Westlands," the village should be located at the "d" in "Westlands." This would place it approximately 500 miles from Baden's Bluff to the N-NW, 400 from Erenhead to the NE, 200 or so from Caderin to the SW and perhaps 150 from the river to the E and further to the Ardune to the S.

But don't make them injured just to find out
Nope. All that have watched the town can see that you aren't the only ones coming here. People can occasionally be seen bringing their injured along with them, so either they just happen to be there or they going to the healer. It isn't in droves by any means, but the astute observer notices that there a good number of wagons coming in have someone that's sick or wounded, nothing too unusual for these times, but still something to notice.

As far as seeing each other, I'll leave that up to you. I've tried setting you in different areas depending upon your background. Thus the humans such as Aleina, Lyr, and Dun could reasonably see each other on the road. The others (Feyd, Soradur, Elennir, and Heulwen) could have conceivably seen each other near the wilds but I imagine each is taking a precaution keep themselves hidden from prying eyes.

A note, Cadrius : Siegrid is a female name, if you want the missing one to be male what about Sigurd Larsen?
