Oh yeah, it's one of those things you just need to make a little time for.

Not that it'd have made a difference here, I suspect.  I'm intending to boost Sense Motive if I can... but probably only by a point. Wink

Dunk's speech needs an applause button.

As for the applause button, it's kind of hard to notice but you can increase a Character's Spell Energy Rating located under their name by pressing good. There's also a taint button which is traditionally reserved for very dark or evil posts. Which you can of course increase by pushing the evil button.

It's almost never done anymore which is kind of sad, but it's a thing to do.


Well, I didn't get much of a chance to truly figure out Timeon before his player left the boards. But from his original character concept, he was playing a Machiavelen Rogue type and, I suspect, lady's man. Given the fairly unscrupulous nature of people like that, his natural confidence with a high Charisma, his average Wisdom score, and the fact that he's got the Speaker Path... in a round about way, yes.

Your Sense motive score is high enough to determine that he is at trying to be clever about a number of things:

1.) Like you, he's keen enough about reading a room full of Dwarves and is aware enough about his surroundings to have determined that the bath house is not actually a place to truly relax. It is a place to come and rest your muscles, get clean and then leave.

2.) He's using that as an excuse to test and see how open Siobhan is to him getting closer to her. You also suspect that might be why he switched from speaking Erenlander or Traders Tongue to speaking in Courtier. You know enough from what Grandfather taught you and speaking to others, that Courtier is a far more difficult language to master than Coloniel.  Many would find that rather impressive, and others who do speak the language are often appreciative of the effort put in to learn it.

3.) For practical purposes, it's even less likely that any Dwarves would understand the language. Although you also are starting to suspect he knows that Amethyst doesn't speak Courtier and he may he holding this as a private conversation in case he's rebuffed.

Can't seem to pull off the same color and the languages don't show up next to the color choices anymore.

I thought there there was a darkpink color for Courtier, but I don't see it in the list.

Ahh, here it is: Orchid

Hmm, wonder what happened there? There's certainly a few more unique choices on the text color list now but it was certainly nice to not have to think about what colors meant what languages before.

As a side note, before this most recent change occurred, I had done a decent amount of experimenting with the color choices and you can add a rather large variety of other colors not listed.

Alrighty then, folks in the shower area are done. Anywhere else you'd like to go or do for the rest of the current day. The next scene that's coming up is going to be an important one.

Sorry - truly.  RL is being a *bleep*.  Still caught up in the process of trying to move house while chronically ill, but now with the added fun of our buyer proving to be pretty thoroughly useless.

We're currently stuck in legal limbo while he fails to respond to communications, fails to give us money, fails to confirm what date he might be able to do so by, and successfully prevents us sorting out our own purchase and house-move.

Ilona: feel free to kick me via email (repeatedly) should I fail to post in the very near future, or disappear again after posting.  I won't be deliberately ignoring the game, I'll just be dopily forgetting about it while lost in woozy stress.

Oh no, I'm really sorry to hear that.

I'm currently a little more sympathetic to your plight myself, as the startup company I'm part of  is having some issues with a person we hired to do a job which is only partway complete and he occasionally goes long stretches with either vague and open ended communication or none at all.

Oookaaay.  I'm here again.

We've moved.  I'm more than a little broken, but all our stuff is in the house.  And we have net access once again.

Our buyers remained 'special' to the end: a good example might be their response to the people *we* were buying from asking for a 2-week delay due to a 'family tragedy'.  Our buyers oh-so-generously offered us *one day*.  They wanted to make us homeless for a couple of weeks... but our lawyers kicked up a fuss, pointing out that they were the ones responsible for wasting months of time for everyone involved, and managed to negotiate a compromise.  Still, things remained an insane scramble to the very end - at one point we were driving in the opposite direction to all our possessions, as the removal van went one way and we set off in the other to visit lawyers and bank again...

The house is filled with boxes; it was a genuine thrill to sit at a table to eat a meal, on Wednesday; we still haven't got as far as the luxury of getting the TV out of its box....

But anyway: hi.  I'm back, I think.  Are we all dead IC yet? Wink

Welcome back Amethyst! Or whoever you really are... Glad to hear some things have calmed down for you at least.

As for your survival status that remains to be seen how things will go. That said, leveling up your character may help some things over. Don't forget to add the holiday Vitality point and skill point I awarded.

Feel free to respond in character and decide what you're going to do next. The scene will play out and then we'll be on to our next main event.

We can keep this scene going a little while longer but if no one has any objections we'll give a little more exposition here and then fast forward to the next day where the combat trial will commence.

As it stands, everyone will have a choice as to whether or not to fight in the arena battle. Punches will not be pulled here.

The rules of the Arena are as Nefario stated. One on one. To the death. Weapons and armor allowed for both sides, if they apply.

The Dwarves aren't necessarily trying to kill you so they will make it what they believe to be a fair fight and adjust the enemies accordingly.



If you are fighting: Please roll 1d12. This will help determine which enemy you will face within limits.

If you are not fighting: This will have it's own sort of consequences. You may try to mitigate or negate those consequences with Diplomacy/Bluff checks modified partly by your in character responses.

You may also try to influence your allies decisions as to whether or not fighting is a good idea for them. Since most of them are NPC's at this point it will fall into the Social convincing by their disposition towards you. Most of your allies are probably helpful while a few are merely friendly with you. So it shouldn't be too hard to convince them.

I'll write up a list of who's fighting or not soon.

Sorry for the wordy delay.  Amethyst's just keen to turn this to everyone's advantage if she can (well, everyone not aligned with the Shadow).

She's also actually fairly likely to volunteer... especially if magic's permissible, or if they can work in teams.  She's pretty sure that she'll be assessed on being smallish and squishy, without regard to her tactical abilities.

Will try to get levelling up done ASAP, but I need to get back to wresting with the bank now.  You'd think that when they'd helped me to buy a new house, they'd be more accommodating about letting me confirm I live in it now...
