In reply to Tanindara Briacat (msg # 432):

My name is Ildrulf Versalain, and I approve this message.

Oh, and don't worry about the statuefication thing, Boss.  I think that others (including Quanfinigon) would agree that being turned into a statue makes a first level cleric infinitely more useful.

Also, on a personal note, Tanindara was telling me the other day, in another game, that she thinks that Quan has done some of his best RPing since he hasn't been able to talk to her.

Also also I need to save my sisters.  Thanks.

I do believe that everyone is in a quorum that the game must go on!

Not only that, but I'm pretty certain that it says in the site's ToU that GMs are not allowed to close games until they're finished.

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I thought becoming a statue was a reward! Our AC certainly improved, and we're now immune to fireball, poison, disease, starvation, fatigue etc etc.  Sure, there's been a markedly increased chance of us getting stolen, but even that's better than the fleshy alternative of being kidnapped. :-)

Must confess I was even having fun as a statue, due to the sheer entertainment value of everyone else's posts and will be sorry to see the game finally vanish from my sticky list. :~(

Absolutely out of the question. Plot be damned.. you haven't killed the dwarf yet! Or where we supposed to lock him in that <coughs> bathroom with the lively mold? Orken!  Gold in there! <points and gestures>

Actually...  I mean, this really does tap onto the `seriously' scale, but both Quan and Infithe have impressed me a lot with that.  I might have said this before, even, I'm not sure.  There's that note in the ADRPG where they talk about the time Corwin's eyes get put out, and about how if it had been a game, the dedication it would have taken for him to keep coming to sessions for five years of game-time while all his character was doing was pacing around blindly in a cell, and coming out once a year for dinner.

It wasn't a game, of course, so nobody ever had to do that.

Until Infithe and Quan.

Who have both not only stayed, and kept poking in in OOC - but have actually roleplayed being statues with IC posts.

As a gamer, I really have to say, that is awesome.  So awesome I've had to break out all three emphasis codes.

Well, I'm... speechless.  Because I'm a statue, of course.  Yes, that's it.

Cripes you people are incorrigible.  I mean, I can attempt to corrige each and every one of you repeatedly, but it just doesn't work.

I'll see what I can sort out from my much- mangled notes over the weekend.

What, seriously?  You think you can just waltz back in here and start things up again?  Do you have any idea how long some of us have been statues?  tosses hands up in the air  Well, alright, I suppose we can give it a try, but I trust we're on the same page vis a vis our anticipated experience rewards, yes?

Ah, well, there goes our negotiating position.

Oh, what the heck.  joins Telgareth in the happy dance

Is it possible for me to tip the scales?

Can I place the conundrum, possibly free you from your stone prison and prodding you with the insult stick?

But if you're "free", why would she need to pay anything?

Stone?  I'm precious, just like before I was statue-ified!  Precious platinum, as it were.  Now, that is.  Before I was merely precious.  ^_^


Shush, brother, speak not of thing you cannot grasp.  :P

One: Thank goodness (or mebbe Toshiba) for external drives.

Two: So, If this is impertinent forgive me -- but are you all just interested in picking up where you left off, or would you rather do something fresh and new?  Same characters perhaps, if you wish, with XP earned and all, but you know ... non-statues?

Re: { Out of Character Chat }
I think backups are probably more Lawful than anything to do with Good/Evil.

I'm... actually pretty torn on that.  On the one hand, our current situation was kind of frustrating; on the other hand, we'd just gotten back together and found some new clues and were working out the teleporter-maze and, well, it felt like we were starting to make some progress.

But I don't know if we really were, of course, and otherwise, I have to admit that yeah - frustrating would be a fair adjective.  So I wouldn't mind if we wanted to skim through a bit to where rigor statis had set out.
