Carrying on with the ongoing RP Game, since the last bread got extra-stale (GM really should get a bread-box). Characters are in development and progress, with a variety of tasks and agendas. Nothing is trying to eat anyone for the moment, so there's no pressure to GET IN, but who am I kidding? Stuff is always more or less happening.
Come on in, the water's fine.
No homo, can't forget that bit

She found Slovenia. Besides, they know where this is, and Orcs will go right up to Inferius. They don't need heavy tracking. The other group, MIGHT. Wait to hear what it is
I'll wait for GM's response before the characters go anywhere.
>>22421>not wanting to go with your waifu
This is why Tracy hasn't been proposed to
This. Pretty much perfectly explains it.
Sorry, it was business
"I had all the gold, the jewels, the priceless art pieces sealed in a vault! I went to make a deposit and the vault was empty! I don't know how this could have happened! My lock is impenetrable!" Ben says>>22382
He's also not that fluent in common
"If only we had an expert tracker in the party,"
Trumpaladin says sarcastically
Thez narrows her eyes. "Wut?" her eye twitches. "You LOST the money?? THAT is going to cost you," she says giving Ben the evil eye.
"I'm going for the lumberjack team. I on't know the location but I can anyone interested there,... quickly."
Actually, a Tracy-Torcuil pairing to find the jewels and a Trump-Inferius pairing to kill the trolls might work pretty well
"me torc and unicorn go find jack"
She continues to glare at Ben, "This is your mess, you knew the risks... that is,... um. We'll sort this out later, I'm sure we cam figure out a way to resolve the situation without resorting to violence."
I want to go find Ponimaru and fight trolls.
Finding Ponimaru is fighting the trolls
Alrighty then. I guess the entire team goes to fight the trolls>>22435
You have learned nothing and shall receive no proposal>>22437
The entire team goes for the Trolls now
>>22434>the party can't decide on this shit
Torc is going to find the money
"Grab hold then," she says holding out her arms.
"Ummm.." *reaches out hoof*
"You have learned nothing about putting aside minor personal interests for the well functioning of the team."
CAN WE DECIDE SOMETHING FOR ONCE>>22441
"No thanks, I'll stay with ben and find out the money problem."And I mean Trump doesn't think Torc would be usefu so why go? Learn the hard way
Tracy already told Ponimaru she would be his Nee-san. She can't let him get killed by someone else.
You'd be pretty useful in either location.>>22450
Yeah, bullshit. Strike 1
"Alright." she says, and everybody goes <whooof>
And finds themself falling from about 4000'.
"Oh shit! Not again,...." she can be heard to say as you all fall, seq quickly trails aftter.
>>22454Jesus, the motivation is that the Party is helping the townsfolk>>22452
Um... Is Thez going to stop us?
"What the fu-!"
What's beneath them? How far is the fall?
*momentarily assumes monstrous shape, involuntarily*>>22456She doesn't care about the town. She cares about creatures close to her.
Glad I didn't have Torc go>turns to Ben
"Meet me out front, I'll be ready in a minute."
Torc goes to the stable, deciding he needs a Watson if he's going to play Shelock for this
"Whoops," Thez embarrassedly says as she whizzes past.
In between panic and the wind bustling by, players notice several large fires well into the distance of the forest, bonfires essentially.>>22457
A shiny-brass twinkle can be seen in the distance.>>22458
Um, you're out of range for that. In fact, Thez is the only one who isn't falling including you.
Rather, Thez is in a controlled dive/descent, there's a difference.
i summoned uatchit though.
Right, my bad. Ignore I said
Grapples nearby black horse thing and awaits
*surf boards towards bonfires*
*slows descent, with best of ability, stabilizing herself to allow her husband to get onto her saddle.*
*also carefully moves towards bonfire, making sure her husband is well-seated*
Alright! Everyone involved in the falling has successfully defeated instantaneous falling. That's a useful skill. Thez is now the one speeding toward the ground saying
But she Whoofs back to party level, standing in mid-air. "Sorry about that, force of habit. But hey! There's where the trolls probably are!"
Troll is there waiting. "Ar we gonna make someone cry?"
Trumpaladin transfers over to his mount, so he can fight while mounted, when safe to do so
Infernius speeds of on Uatchit (the Egyptian goddess, btw). Thez speeds of close behind. Trump jumps over to Fae "I would have made it you know," and quickly follows behind.
>>22476>40 flight speed
lol, You're right Tracy for at least a few minutes. Get comfy until the kitty finally shows up.
Aaaand it's gone...
Tracy, feeling lighter, but somehow heavier, slowly gallops towards the area of the bonfire.
"Maybe, someone took all of prt barry's money. Wanna help get it back?"
"I am sorry for doubting you even momentarily" Trumpaladin says to Fae, and takes out both ring shield and Vanderiem, ready to attack
Slowly? Not hardly. Thez is fastest 111, followed by Infernius 100 (Uatchit), followed by Tracy 90, followed by 30
Essentially what I just did there was allowed player reaction and accoutrements to determine initiative. Trump goes last.
T> Etherealness (monk ability) - And Thez vanishes
Infernius, you're up. You're about 3 rounds out at current speed.
+10 FOR PALADIN'S MOUNT, DAMN IT!
We need Sad Alex to give her a boost
"If there is any way I can help, I will do so. Shall I show you the crime scene?"
Tracy bottles up her frustration, and holds herself back from snorting out a cloud of smoke into the Dragonne (she really
wants to do it)
Well then she should have been more cooperative earlier now shouldn't she?
[1d20 = 20]>>22486
activate burn then go in for a melee attack.
[2d20 = 20]>>22486
Tracy observes the bonfire area from a distance
Rolling Spot + Search
Does she still get her Spot bonus in this form?
Trumpaladin sits back patiently waiting, wishing he had gone with Torcuil
I think I'll go to bed then...
Might check in later, if I'm awake...
im gonna go play oblivion.
Sorry, I left you hanging. Again. I didn't mean/plan to, but I did step away. I neglected to mention, and that is also something that will emergently addressed. With a 20 roll, Infernius lead a grand charge, decimating the Trolls who spout all sorts of reddit-nonsense (seriously, they're trolls
. Unfortunately, despite the cheers of the lumberjacks, and the minimal experience that was gained, the trolls were a red herring.
What Torcuil discovers from trace but inspecific magic residue is that a coordinated effort was exerted on the vault, of a type unknown to him.
if i eat one of there hearts will i gain some degree of fast healing?
HE LIVES>the trolls were a red herring
As in a distraction for the people who ran off with Port Barry's gold and possibly ours while we were here?
*Kills Ponimaru for giving bad information/letting his pidgeon be captured, and also because fuck Tracy*
Seriously, the trolls were literally going to say stupid troll-phrases; low-energy, stupid, and base insult not worth hearing. I was literally going to troll you with the trolls to see if anyone followed the money. Torquil did, so the party has a disadvantaged advantage.
Also note, the money in the treasury (the jew hoard) is untouched, whats missing pertains onlt to Ben'a/Thez' contract
My intent was to have half the party go for the trolls and half go for the money with the division based upon complementary skills, but (((someone))) refused this.
My action is to kill Ponimaru
Ponimaru gave good intel, it wasn't his fault that the situation wasn't as pressing as others. Not to be a dick, but I did allow the party the opportunity to escort the lumberjacks to site and thereby avoid this outcome,....>>22505
Torcuil fulfilled the requirement to determine that it was a group effort, orchestrated and deliberate. These were pros.
>>22506>I did allow the party the opportunity to escort the lumberjacks to site and thereby avoid this outcome
No shit, I noticed.>Ponimaru gave good intel
I want to kill him out of salt over Tracy
If GM says "Try it" that means YOU BETTER NOT FUCKING TRY IT or you'll be turned into a newt
they are dnd trolls right?
Whatever do you mean? I would put it to a dice roll. No takebacks anymore.
Don't ask the dice anything you can't determine yourself, through combined effort, skill, patience, strategy, etc. Always stack the deck. Whether crafting magic shoes, or murdering useless shit. Otherwise, the dice can make your day/wreck your shop. Its stupid the degree of variance the dice allow for.
Each party member excels at something, let them do that first. Thez excels at murder, so if she says "I' gonna" then she's gonna. Good freefall practice tho.
Then Inferius DEFINITELY shouldn't do it
The only things that should be eaten are weeaboo horse flesh by Fae and Unicorn pussy by me
I've been saying this forever!
I collect all the troll hearts.
By the way GM, I never gave you proper credit for this line>>20858 →>I am pleased to see you weren't eaten by the Blue one
Fae has picked up on Trumpaladin's contempt for/way of speaking about Tracy. It's like a dog picking up on the master's emotions. It's adorable. I need to make more use of Fae>>22515>>22510
Um... I guess free the lumberjacks, shake their hands and try to take as much credit as possible, then set the wagons to take the wood back, ten go inform Adam that the lumberjacks are safe and inform Slovenia that I have secured the wood she needs (okay... with help)
after i get all the hearts i go to ben to see if he needs help.
Appreciated, but thats the least
of the double-entendres, refrences, and ironic jokes,
As Infernius arrives, he hears Torcuil exclam:
"A team did this, this was coordinated."
I should probably go help with the stolen goods, but damn it if Tracy runs off with that stallion after the battle, I'm running off with a mare
i ask ben what hes on about
"Oy, it wasn't me freunlewen!" Ben blurts. "I dunno, I didn't do anything wrong!"
JA WIRKLICH? why so tense ben?
Because he's a jew who just lost all the money. Roll a sense motive if you're in doubt.
GM, can I confirm that 1. Charm potions exist and 2. That I slipped one off of Torcuil during a fight? Is the one who consumes it the one who is charmed?
he did. i remember the fight.
[1d20 = 3]>>22523
I have a +23 on sense motive, so I'm going to roll on Ben just because I can
"Charm Person" re the potion/spell, yes. Also yes, they who drink potion r spelled toward the "1st influemce">>22527
He's for real. He thought the cash was safe,"
"It was a team," Torcuil says.
By the way, I do all of the stuff in >>22516
I guess that means tell Adam the loggers are safe, and tell Slovenia I can give her wood if she wants it
I want to hold at this moment, see what Tracy does before deciding how to proceed
See if she chooses to go to the vault with me or if she ignores me and runs off after that stallion. Again
Its to the point where if I sleep now I'll get 5 hrs, so I'm gonna sleep now.
The trolls were am opportunity to creatively and visually murder some shit. Also I was gonna throw weak memes (and maybe some board-specific though not explicit trolling. The party strategized in a waythat was effective neypnd the dice. Victory was assured. At the same time Port Barry was getting jacked, in a way that was unavoidable given the existing securty measures of the vault The only place that might have been safe is the tower treasury.
The method of theft is unknown, but did involve magic.
The party is still well-paid, but the port is broke.
GM, if Fae is sent alone after Ponimaru, what is the chance of success? She has Track as a feat and +4 racial modifier on search and listen checks. She eats those kinds of things right?
Also, does her Command work on horses or just Dragonnes and perhaps dragon like creatures?
The trolls r kill. Ponimaru played a notable job in the death of the trolls and Tracy learns that he can throw 8 kunai per round (she only gets 4!) but his accuracy sucls.
Yes, she has a favorable (75%) chance of tracking Ponimaru. Locating
him however is <50%
You have very good taste in Music>That rat bastard has the audacity to show himself in the open
ATTACK! ATTACK! ATTACK! And now a fourth attack, because I'm level 16, so ATTACK! Plus Dragonne pounce>>22537>He can hide
His cover is flammable, damn it!
Wait, ur seriously attacking him?
Tracy was asked to accompany her Flashy on a mission where her skills would be useful. And she agreed. But then she reneged and ignored him. Why? She decided she'd rather go see a certain Stallion. Well she needs to learn her lesson somehow.
Why not? Is murdering possible romantic competitors in front of witnesses not within the Paladin code of conduct or something?
I can just go after the Unicorn instead
Why you betray me too Inferius? Can't you see I've been betrayed enough today?
*Sad Trump noises*
>Fug @[email protected]'
Well, I'm back on my normal schedule, so I'll be around all afternoon with no distractions, giving details to what Torcuil discovered from his investigation as well as what Ponimaru learned about the Trolls and the situation in the forest, and whatever else is in progress/development.
Trumpaladin wakes up, still heart broken, tired, and having overshot the time he intended to wake up, and wonders what the actual fuck was his state of mind earlier
"Why you do this shit sober?"
Wait, wait, got a question for Ponimaru before leaving the scene
Trumpaladin spends what seems to be an inordinate amount of time giving death glares at Ponimaru, but eventually approaches, not really breaking eye contact as he does this:
"Do not trust the Blue One. However much you want to believe that she is different from the last time she fucked you over, however much you want to tell yourself 'its not the same as it was the last time,' she's the same as she has always ever been. Do not trust her as it will only harm you... I learned this the hard way.
I have one question for you about the trolls, just one: based upon your knowledge and experience with trolls, is the incursion that occurred here out of the ordinary, as if caused by some outside force not formerly present, or is this an ordinary troll attack?"
I'm going to be at work all day. For the moment, has anything changed since last night?
Trolls are all kill and it turned out the better choice was the missing money.
My paper is turned in (late) but I still have other things I need to do>tfw you want to die but you can't because you haven't done all of your work yet
Hi, I'm here
What did Torc find out last night? I passsed the fuck out.
>>22549>trolls are kill
Aww.. I wanted to have some fun with them...>Gotta get back to work
"me do right thing you no kill ponimaru"
*crying paladin noises*
"But Tracy chose him over me..."
What the hell did I miss?
"that not his fault, you should chastise tracy instead of trying to murder a horse whose only crime is helping us fight the trolls."
"What can be done about Tracy? She's unchastizable. But if she loses Ponimaru, then she'll learn"
"theres always a way to punish someone without murdering horse."
"And what is that way exactly?"
"That sounds... Very difficult to accomplish">>22562
"Now that could work. Could you make a magical one?"I think a cup could have really helped Torcuil in an important scene a few nights ago
>>22563Go die in a hole
Rmember only quotes when Torc is speaking. He isn't even close to you faggots. But he could, when everyoe rejoins
Oh that's right. They are not together>>22564
"We need to do something
. Do you know of any helpful magic? We could also take some of her items"
"torc knows hold person."
So does Bill Clinton, would you be opposed to us cutting his balls off?
>On way home from work
>Trump's faggot is trying to steal my yandere gig
Oh stop it you. If I can figure out the math to stop her from killing Fae (who you insisted on riding instead of Tracy), you can play a rational human being. Wait until I get done before y'all start acting like idiots.
Anyway, the first thing Tracy would've done upon seeing Ponimaru would be give him brutal, "friendly" Indian sunburns, for running off by himself, and ask him if he's been practicing with his soccer ball.
Also, skin the Trolls and bottle their fluids. Their hides, bones and tissue will make for good upgrades to her spooky armor.
>>22581>I can't be Yandere
Wrong. I can do it better than you can>being mean to Ponimary
Wrong. Also my thing>Doing bizarre shit to trolls
Burning them>Math to stop her from killing Fae (who you insistent on riding instead of Tracy)
It's taken the intervention of Inferius to prevent Trumpaladin from killing Ponimaru (who you insisted on going to see instead of Trumpaladin)
You need to go investigate the crime scene, mrs. "spot check"
Trumpaladin came too, so what's the issue?
Also, I really wish we could've had that troll fight in session...
Because it fucked up the plan! Tracy would have been more useful at the crime scene, which was the real incident, and not the troll fight
yea but bill is a rapist ponimaru is not.
I think Torcuil taking Ponimaru as a sort of pet or assistant would be a neat idea
NO! Don't be friendly to the fucker
She's a seasoned body-snatcher: she already hauled off the remains earlier; which is when she didn't react when Trumpaladin was attacking Ponimaru.>>22586Troll fight sounded like a lot of fun though.. Tracy is a professional troll-slayer, and I wanted to try a Sneak-attack, ride-by, cleaving combo...
Did the trolls drop any inorganic items? Any clubs, tridents or magnets?
If flashy asks her to accompany her, she says yes. Imagine if he were raped by some mare while she was away?
Tracy became confident in his ability to not get >raped after she, the queen of >Rapists, failed to >rape him (I marked it off of the "Worries" list: it's no longer a concern factor).
Posts keep disappearing and changing order, is there a bug or something?
the only reason i did that is because murder is wrong AND illegal...
Y those posts though? I don't see any wrongthink there.
hes jealous of you running of with ponimaru.
>>22603>running of with
Isn't the group still together atm? Tracy only disappeared momentarily to process the troll parts (while I was at work).
Oh shit, g2g. I'll resolve this autism later.
that seems terrible.>>22605
im at bens with torc i dunno where you are.
Trump and Inferius returned to the Tower, to show off to Adam and Slovenia their work in rescuing the lumber crew (and the lumber) and to ask Ben an Torcuil about the heist. Inferius even interrogated a jew
ben and torc where in the tower?
where is port barrys money kept?
It was never explicitly stated, but I got the impression it was in Ben's building
we should construct a town hall and appoint sechs mayor. that way when we move to the capital we know port barry is in good hands.
yea that was the impression i got too.
That hasn't happened already?
not technically i don't think.
how much autonomy do we want port barry to have?
>>22613>when we move to the capital
I love that line of thinking, although we could perhaps move the capital of all lands to Port Barry>>22616
I kind of feel like I said "build a town hall" at some point, and Sechs has got to be some sort of official leader, but sure, we can do that>>22617
As much as we can give it while it still does everything we want, which is a pretty decent amount
Wait, where are all ofd the characters atm?
I don't have much time for this...
Idk, shouldn't a capital of a country be further inland, normally? It'd be better to check out surrounding areas first, and then see what territories want their own autonomy, unless the plan is to just conquer everyone.>>22621
What's he doing at the tower?
It's easy with Port Barry because they are enchanted with us. They do pretty much anything we want just by being asked. Where it will be difficult is when we expand into different cities. A lot of them will probably have civilian populations that feel they are being oppressed and so might respond to having their government overthrown as being liberated. But I don't know. In general, the less direct control we take, the easier it will be to claim we have good intentions
>>22622>Capital be further inland
Well, here's the thing. I personally believe the ability to move by ship is insanely useful, especially on a map split into multiple continents>see what territories want autonomy
I'd assume autonomy is the default and most of them want it. I'd rather conquer the Court City, and then see which territories want military protection, or at least trade relations>Why at the tower
To tell Adam we retrieved his men and to give wood to Slovenia. That, and I assumed Ben and Torcuil were at the tower, but I honestly do not know
>>22624>the Court City
It's highly likely that the court city may not have the same centralizing function now that the nerd who bullied everyone out of their lunch money is gone. Keep that in mind.>To tell Adam we retrieved his men and to give wood to Slovenia.
Tracy would've followed back that way then.
>>22626>Court City would not be as effective
Yeah, I think it wouldn't be either. But look at it this way. The court city used to control the entire planet. If just ten percent of the cities still want a suzerain, then that means if we take the court city, then we have the court city, those two cities, and a Casus Belli to conquer whoever is attacking the cities we take as protectorates>Tracy would have followed
If she's being cooperative, then Trumpaladin would have cut it short with Adam, and then taken her to the Crime scene since she's obviously the best character to look for clues and he doesn't have to fuck Slovenia to get back at her for ditching>>22627
I love this idea too
