Re: Out of Character Chat
I think everyone's fallen asleep.


Also, anyone else seeing their text in the "message box" as TINY writing, barely visible?? (Though it comes out the right size when posted)

Re: Out of Character Chat
My text seems normal...

Anyway I was waiting for more IC posts and starting to get concerned.  Maybe a clue hunt isn't a great for the PbP format.

Re: Out of Character Chat
I'm loving it so far - don't worry...I think it's just "that time of year" when people are busy. PbF is naturally going to slow down somewhat over the Yule/Christmas period. I've been massively busy with my daughter's 2nd birthday, then a nasty virus followed by a busy week at work! Which is why I'm just now having time to spare. :)

Re: Out of Character Chat
I'm still here but as viithrain said been really busy with work leading up to Xmas. Will post tonight.

A clue hunt is great..... It keeps us older gamers minds sharp and alert ...... Viithrain can vouch that mine tends to wonder sometimes :)

It's a pretty cool book (though maybe more use for a GM rather than a player despite the name.)  New magic, talents, rules for hirelings and running domains and holdings (ie baronies, thieves guilds etc.) Plus the mass combat rules.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Time to move on I think!

Amazingly you've managed to collect all three trinkets so I can move straight on to the scene at Brion's Bluff if people like. :)

Eh, no, not the charm. :D

think carefully:

quote:
What am I?

My belly is round
And bound with iron bonds;
What I carry always raises a cheer.
Murder have I not done;
Stolen not; cheated not;
Yet a peg is beaten into my head

Where am I?

My coat is green and I can speak
Of several things, but mostly cheek.
In such a prison I am set
That has more loopholes than a net.

This sounds like a barrel/keg of Beer

Sounds like the Tower to me, what color is it anyhow.

Exactly... lucky you were given one earlier:

The Gamesmaster:
The youth who'd been running the shell game looked at Elstarir, then and Mannath and very reluctanly sat back down. Looking rather pale he asked the tavern in general:<i><Serif>"Uh... would anyone like a second go?"

Meanwhile his comrade in arms seems even happier to oblige, babbling profuse apologies to the barmaid and reaching for his purse with his free arm.  The barmaid let him go and turned a pleased but mystified expression to Vithrain.

After explanations (which take a long time - half orcs are not that fast on the uptake) the barmaid walks over to speak with the innkeeper. She returns to your table a moment later, smiling. "Asculf decided to give you something for spotting those cheats; how does a keg of dwarven ale sound? Shipped all the way Port Blacksand just yesterday."

Re: Out of Character Chat
So not the Tower, but rather the Parrot in a Cage Inn.  Though I know not what the 'loophole' reference kicks in in.  Loopholes are the holes in a defensive stronghold that you shoot arrows out of.  Thus my thought it was the Tower.  Are also used as jails also.  Like the Tower of London.
