My suggestion: have him be a friend of Oleander's and join us in the Mugging thread. We could use one more there.

Players Joining
Well, being a PC, the character would already be a member of the Indefinite Articles crew, part of the "PCs getting to know each other" phase we skipped over. Joining the mugging investigation would even out the threads, yes.

I have read Oleander Description and I don't think Lutphen and Oleander would be friends however that does not mean they do not know each other.

It would be more like Lutphen is that one fool Oleander has to suffer.
It would be likely that their paths could have crossed many times and they end up getting entangled in each others quests and lives.  Sometimes helping each other and at other times getting in each others way.

They may even have come to blows.  Which most likely would have resulted in neither winning and neither  wishing to push the conflict into deadly force. Both understand the other was no pushover when comes to fighting.

To sum it up I think Oleader would find Lutphen to be an irritating, fool.  A mad man on some mad quest to find something that is not real.  However Oleander would not be able to get away from the fact that he knows this fool is able to look after himself.  That Lutphen is strong and not easy to mess with (which would go for Oleader too).  If delt with carefully Lutphen can be useful asset, if you can put up with him for long.

This would however have to be something Oleander player would be happy with.  It is not really my place to decide these things.  This is just how I see it.
I am open to talk about this with Oleander and come to relationship between the two characters that work with both characters. If he wants.

Re: Players Joining
Part of the narrative so far is that all the PCs know each other and are somewhat cooperative. How well you get along and relate is up to how you decide to RP, but I'd like to keep a lid on the PvP aspects.

That said, whatever hatchets players voluntarily bury in their backstories is fine by me.

I think Oleander would consider Lutphen a useful fool. I am happy to have a further conversation about their relationship, but I think Oleander acknowledges his helpfulness in a mission, but would not hang out with him at a pub.

Re: Players Joining
That would make complete sense.  If you cannot get rid of Celeon Lutphen you may as well use his skills as assets.

If you don't mind me askin,g how old is Olender and what his main aim or goals are?

Re: Players Joining
Oleander, see Caleon's question above.

For his part, Ta'Suil probably has become a bit fascinated by Calelon as well as cognizant of his usefulness.

Re: Players Joining
If Ta-Suil know Caleon that good as well.
However I ask same question.
If you don't mind me asking how old is Ta-Suil and what his main aim or goals are?

I can see Ta-Suil trying to work out if Caleon is mad or is this something more complicated than that going on.

Caleon would not be quite sure how old Ta'Suil is. He appears to be in his late twenties to you, but he hints at having been alive longer.

As far as you know, Ta'Suil's goals are to interact with as many people as possible, to resolve conflicts whenever he can, to rather blindly support Saegar in most of his artifact-hunting forays and otherwise to be an agent of peace and reconciliation, either by most eloquent and gifted word or through use of a rather impressive array of martial arts.

To the best of your ability, you think Ta'Suil is interested both in Calelon just as an interesting person and because Ta'Suil feels they can help each other. Ta'Suil does not let on to ulterior motives easily.

Re: Players Joining
Getting back on topic, Caleon, you're good with "showing up" in the mugging investigation thread with Ta-Suil and Oleander?

It seems the easiest way would be for the two of them to "pick you up" at one of your known haunts in the city on the way to their mission location. If that works, we can get Ta-Suil and Oleander playing in that direction and get Caleon into that IC thread posthaste (pun intended)!!! Caleon, got any preference for where your character would "hang around" in the city when he's got nothing to do?

Really digging the enthusiasm from everyone!

Re: Players Joining
I think the best place for Lutphen would be a library or some place he could look into history or geography of the lands around this area so he can try to find his lost kingdom.

If that is possible?

In reply to Caleon Lutphen (msg # 122):

Absolutely! The way the city is set up, there are minor resources in every "district", think local grocery stores and such, as well as specialties that are specific to the district. The minor resources are also somewhat unique in detail, but overall the services available are the same. So, local library yes, but exact books might vary. I've been going back and forth on putting up an actual map of Sigil, or posting a description in the Lore thread. I'll try to get the latter up soon, just so people get a sense of the city layout and what's around.

On topic, if you've been working your way through the various libraries in Sigil, and whichever one is your current roost is the sort of knowledge updated and circulated through the group at Indefinite Articles, we're there. I'm thinking along the lines of, "If you're looking for Caleon, he's been at X library lately." "Oh, no he'd finished that one last week. Something about having poor translations, he's moved on to Y library." That sort of vague idea of where other IA members are or hang out is reasonable info to have, and the sort of thing Hermitia (the office manager of IA) would keep track of for everyone.

Since Ta-Suil and Oleander are headed for the Merchant District, we'll place you in a nearby library. That work for you, Caleon?

Oleander looks to be in his mid to late twenties. He never reveals his age to anyone.

Oleander came to the city as part of a theatre troupe. As a member of the Indefinite Articles, you would also know that he is good at gathering information from people. There seems to be a particular piece of information he wants, but you do not know what it is, nor why he wants it.

Re: Players Joining
Oh that works very well as we both doing the same thing.
Looking for information.  It would then make sense that we have run into each other.

Re: Players Joining
In reply to Ta-Suil (msg # 127):

To make it convenient, it'd be the one in the merchants' district, but it could easily be named after any suitably accomplished character from Sigil's past. Perhaps even someone some of you know as specifically NOT having done the things that earned them a namesake as a library. Like, "Philus Capre? Dude's a fisherman, he never fought any battles." "Must be a different Philus Capre, this one's legendary defense of Sigil Harbor is a standard in naval textbooks!!!"

There's plenty of history to fill in from Ages 4-8 to draw on, too, so please don't just use poor Philus.

Re: Players Joining
I can't see the "hub thread" where we all met up and discussed jobs anymore. My "filter" is set to Groups 0 and 2. Is there something I should do differently?

I ask because I want to check if the "papers" the guard referenced in the Ruins thread would've come up in that discussion.

Re: Players Joining
Yes, the notice sent to various businesses in the city talking about the ruins qualifies. The idea was to let the businesses know that they were basically offered a job, and at the same time, telling the hoi polloi to stay away, exploring the ruins is for pros only.

Re: Players Joining
I'm not clear how you want to proceed. Are you going to give us wall options and you tell us what's on which wall? Or did you have something else in mind?
