Well, Blanket's the only one who can make effective use of it until Rash'gar grows up, and Clouse has managed to save Blanket's life twice now, so it's safe to say that the big guy is part of Clouse's squad now.

Xein, Riddar, it's worth noting that that torch didn't go out. The Fell Fire didn't just move to the hammer. It spread. The torch is still lit.

Clouse is once again pushing his own insecurities off on someone else, not that xein doesn't deserve it.

Now lets go corrupt an entire dwarven clans ancestors with fellfire! I love this game.

Well that was a fun little scene to play all the way through. Riddar is now leaving to speak to Jael.

Xein's hanging on by a thread, but that's pretty much his theme.

I have been really enjoying this whole thing as well. As someone who played in a Crown of Shadow game that DH ran before, I can't wait to be able to see the other side of things as the campaign unfolds.

Hadn't thought of it that way but yeah, that really is his motif. It's also interesting playing Xein this time around with someone he actually cares for more than just as a traveling companion whom he happens to fight for his life with on a regular basis. It gives him a weakness/source of strength he didn't really have before.

I'm really enjoying the relationship between Xein and Rash'gar. It lends a heart and humanity to the Shadow side of things that I think the game would get really uninteresting without. It would be no fun if everyone was a blackhearted zealot. So far, all of the internal struggle and moral quandary stuff has come from them. I'm definitely going to have to play with those themes more as the game progresses.

Xein does have some Knowledge Shadow, how much does he know about the Sisterhood of Tender Mercies?

The usual stuff. They're the Shadow's Inquisitors, and they are responsible for rewarding the pious and faithful. More than any other sect, you don't want to piss them off.

Anything specific you want to know?

Specifically the kind of techniques they use for their punishment. I'm wondering if Xein could find some way to mentally prepare himself, sort of drop himself into a state of not feeling or caring about anything that is happening to his body.

Well, Xein pretty routinely submitted himself to Skinner's surgeries, but skinner was kind enough to use anesthetic. Xein has experienced a lot of damage and bloodshed, but not really a lot of pain.

I think Xein might be better equipped to handle most kinds of torture, but it would still be an ordeal.

Well now after everything that's happened so far, I am quite interested to see what Jael has in store for Riddar and the troops.

Doomed got taken down pretty hard by a bad cold, he should be on the mend though.

I've been away from this too long. I apologize. Things have been draining lately and I've been unable to harness the focus and creativity I need to move this along.

Riddar: I mentioned this earlier, but the fell fire doesn't actually burn well on a torch. It sputters out fast. You quickly figure out that what it burns is people. Basically, instead of something like wood or paper, it burns best when consuming living, or recently killed flesh. I'm going to give a quick edit of your last post for the sake of moving things forward.

Clouse and Xein: I think that the Sisters are a better storytelling tool when what they do as a reward or punishment is done off-camera. I'm going to let you guys decide for yourselves what the sisters did to you. You can reference it later if you like, or just decide that you "don't want to talk about it".

Rash'gar and Xein, have you two decided what you want to do with your Teamwork feat?

Yes, we decided that we would take Stealth Synergy. Effectively giving us 2 rolls to our Stealth score when working within close proximity, 30 feet, to one another.

Excellent, Clouse will probably fit into the more "I don't want to talk about it." basically a whole side of himself he never had to deal with before but perhaps he understands some of the headstrong orcs a bit better.

After reading Legends of Shadow and Hand of Shadow, I began to stylize how Riddar would deal with those under his command. Of course, being a Soldier Legate, I looked at Jahzir's system of punishment and reward and then I used a baseline from the Shadow ranking system to alter the type of punishment/reward. With a few other modifiers thrown in. Of course, options were limited by our current location, resources on hand, and time frame we were given to work with.

I'd love to talk about what happened to Xein off camera. At the same time, however, I don't want to jump the story forward after the night or clog the board with what is happening to him.

As a side note, opening new OOC thread!
