I did it on purpose XP>>5226
Lenos offers a spray-can and a lighter.
~Yay! Thanks Lenos (although I'm not sure if my character has met him yet).
You might not have seen him, but he's seen you and you're entertaining.
Trumpaladin addresses the party: "I've travelled a great distance to be here tonight. Believe me"
He addresses the ants, and with essentially the same proposition as made in the previous thread, apologizing for the first encounter, and offering the bread loafs. He asks for Sade passage through to the pyramid's inner areas. He now adds peach rings to the offering
For clarification, Lenos' prime motivator is boredom (and the alleviation of). Slag's prime motivator is crushing anything he perceives as an opponent. Thez's prime motivator is getting her goddamn record contract back, and killing those who give her warrant.
This is all undisclosed in character dialogue, but in many RPGs its common to elucidate the NPCs (or GM controlled PCs) disposition.
K, Trump is taking initiative, is everyone else rdy to go?
you have infernuis sword.
Torc? I know its late, but,....
Maybe I'll just stir his haggis....
Can we at least get a response by the ants to Trump's initial statements?
>>5241>Implying I care to go into details for what just happened to him
Torquil's haggis is now officially stirred. Let us never speak of it again, unless it somehow becomes funny.
I totally forgot! As this (pretty much OOC) dialogue commences, a dude in a jumpsuit (not Barry) falls from the sky and >splat< on another part of the pyramid (will provide images).
Strangely, the same fellow falls again on the pyramid with a >splat<,... and again >splat<
Initiate my Thief quirks and loot his corpse(s), for clothes/items.
You find cans of copenhagen
BTW, looting corpses is not a thief skill, its just good business.
Can I take his clothes for fabric?
Of course! Take his skin if you want, it will make work that much more enjoyable!
Do I have any Thief quirks? I know in RPs, some items can only be obtained by rogues.>>5250>doesn't bother to take skin, because she already has more skins than she knows what to do with
Thief (not exclusive) quirks include:
Hiding/sneaking, picking pockets, picking locks, sleight of hand, climbing, escape artist,... I'll probably think of others but those are the main ones.
NO TOUCHIN ME HAGGIS>>5243
Rogues come in all shapes and sizes. Robin Hood was a rogue, as was Jack the Ripper.
You let your guard down during The Game. Let this be a warning.
Haggis = stirred
Yes of course. The ants at the entrance have no vocal cords, but they applaud and seem quite pleased at your arrival. They seem quite welcoming, and gesture you inside.
Assuming no objection, upon entry you're greeted with the Potato who greets you overly enthusiastically (with a taller ant behind him making the same gestures, as though one is puppeting the other).
"Welcome Hewoes! It is our gweat pweasuwe to wewcome you to <sighs contentedly> the hive. Would you wike a touw?"
"It seems like they want us to go inside, ~Flashy."
*rubs chest fluff on leg*
"We have many vawieties of intewests to appease your pwedilections. Do you pwefer tasty noms? We have lots of foo care of,... well that one thewe!" he says pointing at Tracy, and then at Torcuil.
"If you pwefer to kill youw food, thewe is the awmy corps, and in addition thewe's the geo-engineews."
"Spwendid! It is our pweasure to welcome you to <sighs contentedly> the hive."
He leads the way.
>>5265>Tracy considers intimidating the ant to shut him up about the horses, but gives up the prospect as it seems to be beyond the ant
"Yeah... Did you guys, by any chance, build your hive into a weapons practicing room..?" (wants to test out kunai)
*get's on hind legs and gently leads the unresponsive paladin into the Hive*
(assuming no one is falling behind, not that its bad if they do, but if they do please note so they can be redirected,... ants are particular)>>5270
"Why yes, we have a wawwiors area designated fow kiwwing and muwdew. Also, there is the pwactice awea fow NOT kiwwing, but just beating. Awso, we have foosball!" he is ecstatic about that.
Trumpaladin shakes off the Thot, and travels into the hive following the potatoe
I follow really damn confused
*Interest slightly peaked*
"You mean, like virtual divegrass, only not virtual? I think I'll check it out.">>5273
