Just to make it clear - everyone except Dappa and Mannath are just milling about on deck right?

What kind of milling?  I assume with this type of ship.  It would be done with a windmill.  Rather clever of them to see the application of wind power and building a means to harness it!  Just wonder, are we milling logs into lumber?  Or grain into flour?

Hee. :D

Well whichever type of milling it is obviously a vital question that will have to be resolved later.  I'll post a map of the deck shortly and pick up the action.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Here are the deck plans for the Twice Shy:





I'm assuming Manath is on the stairs leading up to the Forecastle, Dappa is looking over the side and everyone else is, ahem, milling in the middle.

Sorry the quality of the scan is so poor but I am working from quite an old book.

Looks good to me. I hope the sea dragon is just for artistic licence, otherwise we're buggered!

However if the contents of the barrel is rum, Vithrain will have it....

Re: Out of Character Chat
Both barrel and sea dragon are artistic likeness, for now at least. ;)

Again I'd like to apologise for the quality of the scan but as I've said before I'm working with a very old copy of the book, which isn't very scan friendly anyway.

Okay, I've made the assumption that Mannath did not close the Forecastle door behind him so you are within earshot at least of him. You do have sufficent time to run to join him (or he to run and join you) before whatever is appraching arrives.

Oh and just to be clear Mannath is still outside location 4 - the door is dramatic enough looking I have to check before you enter it (or don't if you prefer). :)

Re: Out of Character Chat
The quality is just fine! :D


Should I edit my last post to narrate that I see the door and what I do about it? Or do you want to post first?

Re: Out of Character Chat
You can't see the door from the deck (though you can hear Mannath perfectly fine.) I assume Vithrain actually went inside the forecastle right? If so then yes you see the door. :)

Image quality is absolutely fine, don't worry.

Might be worth putting the map in a separate thread so we don't lose it...

Hi all still here but not posted as there is nothing for the elf archer to do as he's still sitting on the deck cleaning his bow and making arrows. :)

Re: Out of Character Chat
They (whatever They are) will be within arrow range in one round and hand to hand in two rounds. You do have enough time to seek shelter - either in the forecastle where Mannath and Vithrain currently are or elsewhere.

Btw I'll be away until Monday evening so feel free to plot and scheme amongst yourselves until then. :)

Exactly! :D

As far as you can tell you five are the sole living things aboard.  Granted you have only explored the main deck and part of the forecastle.

Because otherwise no adventure? ;)

Holding off an IC reply until I hear from Tarrian.

Re: Out of Character Chat
Hmm, we haven't heard from Tarrian for a while so I'll move forward. Just before that though: is Elstarir seeking shelter in the forecastle and/or is anyone else going back on deck to join him?

Might be worth advertising for a new Tarrian...
