GM:
*wanders off to read the lower sidebar of book-page 147 from Gaia: Beyond the Dream*

^_^

I can't check that at the moment, but it sounds bad.  For me, I assume.  :(

Ah, well.  If it's anything to do with social conventions in Gabriel and inter-class discourse, something tells me it's really not something that Serafyna would give a crap about.

I'm on to you, GM. There is but one way to settle this dispute, with a dance-off between Elroy and the Viscount!

Just reading up on dancing, ignore me.

*from memory*

Ah, so it's THAT sidebar.  "Of Dances and Duels" or somesuch.  So we're really talking duels here then.  Right.

*Re-reads the sidebar in question*

Ah, well that explains what Elroy is up to.  Well, it does when used in the context of the OTHER sidebar on that page.

Clearly he's trying to obtain money to buy himself a better title by angering the Viscount so much that he starts using gold coins as projectiles.

A cunning strategy.

Anima IS based on Final Fantasy.  Maybe he's hoping someone has the Throw Gold power.

Sadly, that's limited to Group Two in the other game.  ^_^

I still maintain that was a valid tactic, and certainly unusual from RPers.

Look at the other encounters that the group have had in the other game:

Alesky:  Potential ally killed, Corim messed up.
Attack at Al Sheivan's:  Massacred bowmen.
Casus:  Four team members and several horses permanently dead.  Three team members temporarily dead.  Potential booty in cave lost.  Potential ally now sworn enemy.
Komerfest:  Tasha nearly dead.  Solomon seconds from death. etc.

The bandits:  We're a few GC down, and nobody hurt.

That's a win, by our standards.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
Oh, it's unusual.  I admit that.  :)  Very surprising.

A few points, of course:

quote:
Attack at Al Sheivan's:  Massacred bowmen,


Massacred bowmen who were loosing arrows into a compound of unarmed people, backing up a bunch of spearmen advancing into said compound of unarmed people...

Forgive me if I don't weep for them.

quote:
Komerfest:  Tasha nearly dead.  Solomon seconds from death. etc.


Honestly, that was my own fault, though Tasha had the means to deal with the attack and planned to break it.  However, I hadn't planned on there being another person with Orochi blood in the neighbourhood, which lead to the fiasco.  :(

Also, Siriel's point.  :)

quote:
The bandits:  We're a few GC down, and nobody hurt.


Except the helpless families the bandits will torment and kill in the future.  :(

Being 'heroic' and trying to help often involves risk.

I accidentally edited Siriel's message.  Fortunately, it was easily rectified.  :D

Oh there have been others in animes that did that. The Sniper Girl from Negima! when she wasn't allowed to use guns is the first one that popped into mind. And she supposedly based that fighting style on an older Japanese story about a detective who threw coins at people because he didn't like guns.

Speaking of GM'y powers, if you want to be able to see the whole thread in the future, it's about time to open a new one.

But now they have money so for the few days/weeks it takes them to booze/whore the money away, the roads are safe from that particular Bandit gang.

Take the victories where you find them, I suppose.

Good point, Siriel.  Will open a new thread soon.

Wait, wait, wait. Hold on.

What do you mean Corim messed up?

Whose idea was it to kidnap Alesky's allies and interrogate them, pray?

Corim followed the plan flawlessly. Then Alesky showed up and everything went to hell. Not his fault.

Re: OOC -  Sitting Around the Campsite.
I admit I don't remember any of that being Corim's fault.

Edit: I think he meant "Corim was messed up after the fight.". As in Alesky exploded his arm.

Ah, I see. Yes, Corim did bear the brunt of that particular SNAFU.

Apologies, reading comprehension is not my thing this day.

Actually, Elroy is a Count, I think, not a Baron, Serafyna.

Indeed he is, at least according to every previous post.

So the "cannot challenge" idea is mistaken.

Absolutely.  Nice catch, Siriel.  :)

Now that I'm in the PROPER window, Giovanna, you might include a persude roll with that post.    :)

I find it amusing that Serafyna probably just made things worse by effectively insulting the guy's social position.

Oh, what's one more insult in a tense situation?  ^_^  We're well past that sort of thing by this point.
