Were around... I'll post soon, weekend = busy.

Beid.... The chargen guidelines are pretty well explained by Mega here
http://www.online-role-playing.com/f...s=&threadid=67

If it works under those rules, then go ahead.

Wanted to ask you all a favor... I want you guys to feel free to jump in with plot twists or points at any time... I am finishing my posts on purpose in a manner to leave things open for you all to explore, change, mess-up, screw with or whatever.... my feelings won't be hurt.... feel free to lead the RPT if you so feel upto it. I'm having fun also, and thank you all for great posts.

I suppose that would be polite, to contribute equally. Sure thing, I'll try and think up some twists and agendas of my own. I just thought we could get to your mother's place without incident.

It doesn't have to be earth shattering.... just play into the situation ... thats what I do.... you can stay in character also... ask questions, look around.... I am dropping hints.... but add your own flavors in there..... hence the question at the end of my last post.... have fun... make something up that intrigues you... where does Cadrius want to go.. how does he feel about being in a huge home that seemlessly shouldn't exist, especially with a weird sky.... and a weird Grey clad man, who is going to see a mother that looks nothing like him, with three women, who seem very affectionate to this man, and still refer to his mother as mom.... explore, create... have fun.... I'm ranting, but done.

My sincere thanks for keeping the RPT alive peeps!

As you can read : Im back in game again.

Whonans plot fits perfectly with what I have in mind.
Dont worry ; the goofy sorc. isnt dead...
For the "Voice in my head" Ill give a little hint : Scandinavia.

Actually, it might not be a bad idea if we shared a bit of where we think the story ought to go. Clearly, Whonan and Mega have some ideas of what they'd like to see. I'd rather not de-rail any of that. For now, I can see us being talked into a quest by Whonan's mother. I'm thinking that we'll eventually see that quest completed, only to find that we'd unwittingly helped our enemy - either Whonan's mom was duped or she's in on the whole scheme. The odd set of tracks I brought in were to lay some groundwork for the third faction (ie. the real enemy), and introduce the idea that all may not be as it seems.

Hmm, Mega I may have figured it out...

Anyway I'm more than content with Whonan's and Mega's hooks for now. I do have one in mind for old Cadrius here but it won't come into play for a while.

However I might ignore this thread. I really do enjoy the twists and turns thrown around by everyone. The game is so very different when everyone is a DM and a player.

Well, I wasn't suggesting we lay out the entire story - just the general direction. It was just an idea, though, I don't mind if we go totally blind.

Sorry for the delay, I was waiting for Lee to finish up his backups and whatnot. I guess that's over with . . .

Oh man that crow thing freaked me out. Have you read "Black House" by Stephen King and Peter Straub? If that crow started saying things like "Gorg" or "Abbalah" I would have run screaming from my computer.

I've read quite a bit of Stephen King, though I haven't read "Black House". But I could toss in a Gorg if you'd like . Are we turning into a horror/mystery? Add a little comedy we could be the new scooby doo.

Yeah, it's the sequel to a book they wrote 20 years ago called "The Talisman." I'm about 200 pages into it and it's quite good. I think that coupled with the sudden appearance of that bird (which I mistook for a crow) gave me a new wave of goosebumps. *shudder*

I don't know about that, where will we get the Scooby Snacks?

I think a raven is just a large crow. If not, they're close enough that it doesn't make any difference .

Did I ever read the Talisman? I seem to remember it floating around the house before I went off to college, but for some reason I don't think I ever picked it up. I read most of his earlier stuff, though. I think the last one of his I read was Needful Things.

Ah The Talisman is truly epic. A great book to read.

We have decidedly taken a turn toward horror, or at least suspense. Not only that but our posting has been rather voluminous. I certainly hope Mega, Whonan, and whomever else that wants to join in don't mind reading through all this.

Hopefully Whonan and Mega will come back soon. I hope they don't mind the additional reading. Still, not much has actually happened in all that posting. And I do hope some others jump in as well.

To be honest, I sort of started off toward the orchard just to keep the thread moving. I'm pretty happy with Shade as a character, though, and I'm really liking the interaction with Cadrius. Good stuff, and it's fun writing.

I'd just like to say that I totally understand if nobody wants to read the ungodly amount that I just typed. I apologize for being overly verbose but Whonan just gave me a chance to tell Cadrius' story. Part of it anyway and once I started writing I couldn't stop.

It's a bit cliche and a bit over-dramatic, but it had to be told.

For those without the patience to wade through my atrocious story-telling I'll give you a brief plot synopsis (and if you want to be surprised by what happens I suggest you stop reading now).

Here's how it breaks down. Cadrius' beloved betrayed him and fell into the arms of his brother. Cadrius challenged him to a duel and sought to kill his brother (Ben). Unfortunately at the last moment (isn't that always the case?) his beloved leaps in front of the blade causing Cadrius to kill both of them at once. Tragic, no?

What good is having a fallen paladin if you are going to skimp on the drama? I rather liked it. Sooner or later you'll get to know a bit more about Shade's story, but I don't think it's time yet.

Whonan, does this mean you'll be posting more frequently?

I swear, I need to learn how to reign myself in when it comes to post size. Ah well, I figure trouble sires three children, we've already seen two of them for Cadrius. I wonder what the third will be...
