Sorry. I have this training an hour away and the drive time is killing me. Will update my post here in a few minutes.

No problem; take your time. Heaven knows I've had problems getting to keyboard this past week.

Sorry it took me so long to post a response, guys. I've been busy as hell for the past couple of weeks with work.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Well. This is definitely why I generally try to avoid combat; it drags when I try to run it, and for that I sincerely apologize.

Are you guys still around? We can try to resolve the remainder of this cinematically if people prefer. :/

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!

I'm around. And, if it wasn't immediately apparent, not a combat character (at least until I get some of that martial art I'm going for :p ), so no issues with it.

I don't mind continuing to resolve it as it goes either, however.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Oh, I'm not faulting anybody but myself; combat takes a while, and then I had a wedding to attend at the start of the month, and for some reason I was slow in getting back into things after that.

Anyway. Situation as it stands: The Blood of the Forge has retreated, immaterial, through the ground, and at least a few mortal victims have been transformed into demon...things. Which seem to be attempting to be lecherous at the two female PCs.

No need to apologize. I'm mostly worried that my own slowness has caused disinterest in my remaining players. ^^;

Congrats on the new nephew!




I'm currently waiting on response to the new demons' actions, but I can post something more if people need more to react to.

*cough* My apologies for the delay; I discovered that I only have a hard-copy of the book the demons being used here are in, and that it's not unpacked. I need to find it and dig it out, and I haven't had time these last couple evenings. I'll try to get to it today, though!

Failing that, I'll make something up. >_> <_<

We still love the game regardless of delays. In fact, its the best Exalted game I am playing online at this point and out of all but 1 game I have played ;-)

In reply to Merlin (msg # 390):

Aw, thanks. That is reassuring. I always worry when I go for too long without responding that I'm ruining everybody's time. I know that's silly of me, but I do try to take GM responsibilities seriously.

Believe it or not, I have an overarching plot - of the "things the players will discover and probably need to deal with" variety more than the "here's how the story will go" - that's fairly extensive. It just takes some building towards.

Meanwhile, we have the Beastmen, the Guild, Falan, Trademeet, and Sidereals clashing over this tiny West Virginia-sized portion of Creation.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
It seems this scene has ground a bit to a halt. Perhaps we should take OOC stock: what is left to accomplish here, and what do you, the players, want to see next?

Basically, the IC situation as it stands is that you did manage to stop most of the soldiers from being converted into demons, but not all of them. Fortunately, the Duke and his son are amongst the saved. You've driven the Blood of the Forge into retreat, and the handful of 1st circle demons that remain are not instantly hostile, though it could turn back into a fight very quickly if you wanted it to.

Harrenhal - which is what these are - are basically volcano-dwarves with all of the manners of old norse dwarves. Which is to say: none at all. They're rude, crude, socially unacceptable craftsmen who like a good brawl and have lechery on par with a sailor just released for shore leave after a year at sea.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!

Pleasant people.

Well, Azalea won't be pursuing the continuation of a fight, and I don't think demonification is something treatable (well, for now, because Solar Healer), so covalescence sounds appropriate for those saved.

One more reason to practice those martial arts basics in her free time, though.

Yeah, Agreed.

I think they are a distraction. We should kill them quickly.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
I'm not sure we *can* kill them quickly... but it would be bad to let them roam freely, given their, erm, appetites. So I agree that we should probably make the effort.

I think Bea might be drawing enough attention to make the mortals safe for now, so we should make use of that.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
If you want to kill them, they will fight to survive. It is a valid option. It might be the only option, particularly if your goal is complete removal of their potentially hazardous influence with no further risks. Those with Occult 2 or more can be aware that demons are alien, but not essentially hostile. Depending on what their progenitor left "programmed" in their heads and what their essential natures are, there might be non-combat solutions. Of course, those non-combat solutions may be inadequate, depending on your goals.

I'm neither trying to encourage nor discourage combat, but rather to give enough information that you guys can make your own determinations as to what you want to achieve and try to come up with ways to do so. Combat may or may not be the best way to achieve your ends.

Sorry guys. Teaching has been kicking my ass, especially with about 2/3 of my students on the football, volleyball, or cheer squad. Been going to a lot of games and my gaming has been suffering.

Will get back and be good on Thursday, of not sooner :-)

It's all good. I've been oddly busy with umpteen random unrelated things for a while now, so I can hardly complain about others' schedules.

Most of the week he says :p

The last IC post was over a month ago before today. *snickers*

Good to see people are still about, though.
