Well, you see, Merlin wouldn't be paying attention to him except for the 'necklace'. ;-)

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Alright, in the interests of not having multiple players sitting out because they have nothing to do, I am going to open up a bit about what I'm trying to achieve in the next scene, so we can all get on the same page and make sure it works out!

I need to get the two new PCs talking to the group as a whole - or at least what players are still paying attention. In order to facilitate this, I'm going to run Beatrix's scene with the Duke in the background and let time elapse. I am suggesting that Mason conveniently suggest a couple hours from now as the time he can meet. There are a good half-dozen taverns and inns in Oredol's surrounding town (really more of a small city); if Mason or somebody else wants to make up a name, feel free. If not, I'll make up something.

If a tavern or what-all is not suitable for introducing PCs to the group and having discussions, I'm open to other suggestions. Regardless, I'd like the next scene to have Beatrix having just finished her little thing with the Duke. There are one or two conversation threads to be wrapped up in this thread, and then I'll open a new one.

Thoughts, objections, suggestions, etc.?


Oh, and feel free to keep your conversations that are currently happening in the current IC thread going; I'm just posting this to try to get us back on the same page and make sure the next scene I write can achieve the goal of "getting new PCs into the party."

That sounds fine to me.  There doesn't seem to be much left going on in the current thread.

Yeah.  I saw that you don't have to buy combos anymore.  This makes me so happy.

I know! Right?

I'm trying to get a response if this effect all splats, or just Exalted. (I know the text starts by saying 'Exalted,' but the writers have been in a bad habit of using it as a neutral term for a long time now.)

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
The Fair Folk section on "Glamour Combos" still reads as it did before. It says they are "able to construct Combos much as Exalted do, but have little need to," and then goes on to describe how they can spontaneously make combos by adding 1g to the cost of the combo activation.

But, since they do it "much as Exalted do," they now do it spontaneously and have the option to spend 1g when activating them to no effect! But at least the rules' wording gives Raksha free combos, just like Exalted, even if Glamour Combos make no sense now.

I hope we do not have to go and update all our characters and such. I have no time to read the 'new' 2.5 rules.

I'm not planning on worrying about it right now. We can discuss it later if rules issues related to 2.5 really come up in this game.

For now, I just want to remind people that the IC thread is awaiting attention from PCs. ^_^

I think Galen has blabbed enough, so I'd prefer to wait out for the other PC's to weigh in, if I may ;)

I'm here with the captain too.  We've been doing a lot of the bantering, so I'm backing off until others speak up.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
So, what am I not providing for people that they need to have something to respond to in the IC thread? I get the feeling everybody's waiting on everybody else. ^^;

Mason, you were the last one asked a question to....that wasn't a side conversation.

True, but he did note his PC would ignore the horrible drunk. Hmmmm... Perhaps I have a solution!!! (Bum, bum, bum...!)

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Nah. Maybe. Hm.

Is that too much showboating? I get why Mason would not want to talk to Galen, as the Captain is being a drunken pest and an utter jerk in the beginning.

I'm just hoping to provide a hook for the other PC's, so I'll step back again at this point and see how others respond.

Nah, not too much showboating. If there *is* such a thing in an Exalted game. ;)

Also, Bea divulges exposition for the new people in the group. If there's anything I missed in the recap, be sure to toss it in the pile! Bonus points for the first guy who manages to work in the phrase 'As you know...'.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
I just noticed I randomly switched to purple for Galen's dialog some time ago. Odd.

Well, it's back to dark green, for now.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
I note that we've had no activity since Tuesday. If people wish to respond to Beatrix's latest post, please do so (or comment at least in the OOC thread); if not, I will set the next bit in motion. Please let me know what you prefer! I will wait until tomorrow evening or until I have at least two replies.

Re: OOC thread: Into Falan!
Sure. Bea asked Sevastian about this specifically because he's shown himself to be a bit of a charmer, but if anyone else is up to investigating a likely spy ring, they can speak up and volunteer.

Alistr's method of cracking a spy ring is cracking skulls until someone talks. Well maybe a toe or two to start.

Well, since ideally we'd like to make friends with this spy ring and have them tell us useful things, beating them up might not be the best course of action. ;)

If this is to be discussed, perhaps doing so IC would be more fruitful?
