Ardenas, already on the street, braces himself in a chimney position at the top of the door, using the strength of his legs to try to hold the opening, well, open (but ready to spring free before excessive closing force can injure him).

Mario holds position, behind and just to the right of Brodak, as he watches the stairs destabilize.  "Hurry, everyone!"

With the sounds of the building literally snapping apart in front of her, Kalima realizes that she has to get out of there. " Coming, Aoife?"

Jareth sees something interesting (to him anyway) and picks it up.  Then he notices everyone scrambling for the door... "Oh right.  We did say 'run' didn't we Akimbo?"

Jareth strides purposefully to the door keeping a firm grip on Akimbo's pocket.  "muffled angry chitter sounds"

Mancini snatched up a battered leather wallet with something inside, and a silver chased case with something that rattles in it.

Clarence' step faulters as he stopped to consider stuff, and he runs for the nearest exit as he realized he needs to be gone...

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
Mancini, having grabbed what he able, exits the quickly deteriorating pocket dimension. He will examine the loot later to determine worth and if its usefulness later.

21:00, Today: Mancini rolled 10 using 3d6.  DX roll 12- to leave

Mancini looks for his traveling companions and goes to see if Jareth's crew is alright.

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
Narrator:
each of you make a DX roll.

Sorry forgot to put the rolls in the post above...

20:04, Yesterday: Jareth Mooncalled rolled 12 using 3d6.  DX 10 loot roll.

20:04, Yesterday: Jareth Mooncalled rolled 11 using 3d6.  Quality roll.

20:05, Yesterday: Jareth Mooncalled rolled 11 using 3d6.  Weirdness Magnet roll.




quote:
As to the "nearest door" folks are departing by the doors they came through - a dex check for anyone unencumbered, and a dodge roll may be needed for those who grabbed loot or shopkeepers to get out safely at this time through any of the three.

I suspect you mean a Dodge roll for any one Encumbered or Grabbing Loot?  What if it's both?  (I suspect almost everyone is at Light Encumbrance at the very least... armored folks are probably worse off)

This will be bad...

21:46, Today: Jareth Mooncalled rolled 14 using 3d6.  Dodge 10.

In reply to Jareth Mooncalled (msg # 805):

I meant encumbered by dragging a shopkeeper, plus having handfuls of stuff.


You have a leather case with something heavy in it.

You slip on the disolving stairs, and get snatched by the collar by the Ymid's staff, as it has a collection of odd things under its arm. One of them falls into the void below you and disappears. You have a tremendous sense of vertigo.

Ooc: Norman only has one disgusting shopkeeper to worry about. He forewent the looting in order to make sure Johann got out safely, figuring there will be a bigger reward for turning him over to the Haedereum for torture, err, um, I mean interrogation.

In reply to Norman (msg # 807):

Clarence got... something. Make a 3d6 roll for quality of item.

Everyone gets out, and the chalk door strarts to shrink rapidly, even as the stairs disappear from the top down. As you get out, the door to the stairs buckles inward, and is sucked through and then the wall collapses.

Nodwin takes quiet stock of the group, and looks them over somewhat carefully from where he is standing.  "Is anyone hurt?  Is everyone safe?  Did everyone get out all right?"

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
Jareth stumbles to a halt in the street, and pats the Ymid's shoulder, "Thanks fer t'e save on t'e stairs."  He shudders, "Been long time since stared The Gate and The Key in t'e eye like that... so to speak."

Then he settles down into a seated position on the street by the wall.  "I just take t'e minute or thirty an catch fy breath."

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
Mancini takes a few moments to appraise the items he has newly acquired from the demon shoppe. He also takes time to look carefully at the items, seeking out any hidden panels or the like.

22:34, Today: Mancini rolled 13 using 3d6.  Observation 14 object 2.

22:33, Today: Mancini rolled 6 using 3d6.  Observation 14 object 1.

22:31, Today: Mancini rolled 5 using 3d6.  Merchant 16 object 2. Crit!

22:31, Today: Mancini rolled 10 using 3d6.  Merchant 16 object 1.

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
Mario looks around to be sure everyone is accounted for.  Jocelyn, Mellarill, Crotchsniffer, Clarence, Jareth, Nodwin, Brodak -- he points to each as he mentally runs down a (badly spelled) list.  His brow furrows for a moment.

"Oh, right, we left the new guy working on the construction."

Ardenas looks relieved.  "Mancini, we need to talk about risk assessment."

Nodwin looks at Ardenas quizically.  His head angles slightly while he asks "What do you mean by...risk assessment?  I do not understand what you mean by this."

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
"We need to do a better job of finding out what's up before we charge in."

He shifts his gaze to Kalima.

"I can't claim to fully understand your need to hunt demons, and you've probably been doing it longer than any of us has been alive, with the possible exception of that elf lady in the group that joined up with us.  But when you let hunting demons overtake any attempts at subtlety, you might wind up getting us mortals killed.

"I don't know what happens to you if some demon overpowers you and cuts your heart out or lops off your head -- but we humans would die.  Our spirits would be separated from our bodies and wind up wherever our beliefs and life actions send them.  And for us, it's permanent.  Forever."

He turns to Sederic.

"And what in all the Hells was that back there?  You acted like an ill-trained dog chasing after a cat that bolts."

Re: Hunting for a specialty shop
"I agree", Mancini said testily. "But when we have other groups doing their own thing, it makes it harder to formulate a plan of action."

He paused, grimacing as the events replayed in his head. "Too many chefs in the kitchen."
