Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Iceman is no 'goatherd' but Einhar is indeed trained as a mount if needs be. For the moment, Alonder can indeed mount Einhar. Alonder will have to hold on tightly with both arms (which are functional but weak) since the muscles in his legs still do not follow orders. He can't exactly ride like a normal rider could.

Rebecca's Gear:
  • Pieced Armor
  • Large Shield
  • Short Sword
  • Dagger
  • Tinder Box
  • 3 Torches
Urvan's Gear:
  • Buff Coat
  • Hand Axe
  • Short Bow
  • Quiver
  • Waterskin
  • Utensils
  • Tinderbox
  • Torches

No silver? The paupers. Well I suppose they took this job for a reason then.

Leyna can't make use of anything except maybe the cooking utensils. She already has a tinderbox and doesn't need torches herself. I guess the dagger would help as a general utility tool.

Anyone else need anything?

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

I might as well take three torches. I have a lantern but having backup sources of light isn't a bad idea when my oil runs out.

Can we assume the goat can carry the ember, silver, and wine? If I need to carry some of that stuff I can but I'm pretty close to my encumbrance max.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

I just remembered Leyna's stated goal is to "Acquire and study Ember" so she'll claim the vial. I presume if it is a small vial that it is Enc 0.

I'm going to update the IC post I just put up to reflect this, since it will actually make a big impact on her ICly.

Edit: Done.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Hello, everyone. I'm the new guy.

I hope I didn't mess up with the way I used the language group; it's been years since I used that functionality and I am not certain I did it right, put in the wrong language name or something. Anyway, the dialogue there isn't very important, but the flavor was worth giving it a shot! I'll edit if necessary.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Welcome, Garret!

I had no idea that this was going to be your introduction - I thought the figure on the road was an NPC - but I'm pleasantly surprised.

I see the language translation just fine in your post, so it looks like you did it correctly. This is actually the first game I've been in that's ever used it that functionality. I think it's neat.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Just read Garret's description. He sounds like Leyna's brother from another mother! They'll either get along great or will fight like cats and dogs.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Why not both!

I have always loved the language group feature of RPOL, it's underutilized but so useful to keep things immersive. And I think the DM might not have added this particular language to Garret's repertoire—it was a late pick for me after all—since all I can see is scrambled text right now, oops.

DM, at your convenience, could you fix that for me, please?

Oops, sorry, Garret. I've updated your language groups presently. Let me know if it's still not working for you.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Welcome, Caldus!

Can we get a description for your character when you have a moment? Not sure if you're a fat merchant or a bloodthirsty barbarian. I put one up for Leyna in my IC post.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

I'm a bit confused about what's going on. You said Alonder, Iceman and Valgard were at the camp, while Leyna, Garret and Ralden went out to scout together. But Iceman and the scout group are interacting with Caldus, so where is this happening?

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

I don't think we ventured very far before encountering Caldus. We're all within the old village, so nearby each other.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Yeah, the idea was initially that the groups separated a bit, but since the scouts found what they were looking for rather quickly they happened to be close enough to join the conversation. Since it doesn't seem to matter much, I fudged it a bit for convenience to keep everyone involved.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Can someone remind me where we're at with Alonder's paralysis? I went looking but I couldn't find it.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

Alonder still cannot put weight on his feet. However, at the rate at which he has been recovering, he estimates that barring any setbacks he should be fully recovered by morning.

Sorry for the lack of action lately, folks. I'm dealing with both moving to a new location and also job hunting in earnest this past week. Thanks for your patience.

Re: OOC: Virtual Town Crier

I'm actually about to go on vacation so this was a convenient time for a pause for me. Best of luck with the move and the job hunt.
