[RotR] Burnt Offering - Returning to Thistletop

Post by Duniagdra » Sat Jul 02, 2011 7:27 am

At last it's time to return to complete what's begun. Thistletop is still a threat as long as those who were partnered with Naulia remain, assuming they are still there now. You return to the mayor and introduce your new team member. The sheriff allows you each a horse and you stop for a last moment of respect to a fallen comrade. Dregs will be missed.
The journey is uneventful, but timely. You reach the thicket and having the time, you cleave a path through and secure your mounts in the same place as Tuck was last seen with the horse. What did happen to him...
Careful examination of the surface grounds reveals no new evidence goblins, but you do see the occasional larger bipedal prints. No point in guessing. The truth of what remain can only be revealed by going back down. you descend to the first of the lower level and realize that you've only covered the jailer's room of this level and know that at least something other dwells here, and that the goblin chief mentioned of guard dogs as the worship place. A decision needs to be mad to continue to the lower level, or explore this one. You examine the map what was made for you. You're again standing in the larger fifteen by twenty feet room with the large table and searched through notes and drawings.

[talk]So, what do you say? Clear each level methodically or go deep in hopes of finding the most dangerous foe first?[/talk] Vi asks the question of the party in general, but looks pointedly at Yiri, as if to evaluate her response.

Sennsing Vi's attention, Yiri speaks up. [talk]A methodical cleansing would be wise in my mind. No enemies left behind before we descend deeper.[/talk]

Durmisht nods at the new girl's words and moves to the front after asking Vi [talk]Can we get a light source of some type? You can make light come from my new sword as long as it isn't pink.[/talk]

With an evil grin, Vi comments, [talk]I really should have told all of you that pink lights are the only kind my spells are capable of creating...[/talk] She complies, however, and touches Durmisht's sword, making it glow an ordinary, boring torch color.

There is a danger in leaving enemies behind us if you go deeper... I say we make sure each level is cleared before proceeding down any further.

[ooc]I think the general consent is to explore this level. I meant to put this in the level one thread, as that is where you are. Admin, if you can do this, could you please move these posts to that thread. I will update tomorrow morning as it seems, due to a schedule of some sort being made, that I will have part of the mornings to myself, so expect I will make all my updates and validations in the morning by the first opportune time I have.

Move from this post down into this thread.[/ooc]

Move from this post down into this thread.
May I humbly suggest starting 'new' thread about our 'return' there? I hate moving posts as it is prone to errors, no thanks to the weird way it works in the control panel.
But if you really want that, then I'll try to comply.

[ooc]I'm sorry. I'm having a hard time finding the time to post.I don't know what to do. If you wish to continue this, then I need time to get things in order on my end, which means putting this on hold a while. There are two other options. I step down as DM and someone else take over, or I put this to the cemetery permanently. I don't want to end this though, so the third option is a hard one to make.[/ooc]

[ooc]Well, I'm in 2 of your games (RotR and COT) and was considering dropping out, so I don't have an issue with these games ending. I was holding off because I didn't want to make things more difficult for you.

I want to be clear, I do really appreciate the time and effort you expended. I just personally found the pace of these games to be to slow for me to enjoy. Anyhow, that's my 2 cents.[/ooc]

I'm preparing to bring this PbP back to action. I'll be training a new driver this Thursday, which means he's either replacing me, or going to be the break, twice a week, I sorely need. I'm burnt out working seven days a week and giving all my time to this job. With this, I'm going to prepare myself for bringing Runelords back in action, but I need to know who's still in. Post up for role call. I'll send out a PM in a few days to all players last active here as a follow up. Once I know this, I'll have admin bring Runelords out the grave.

[ooc]The party is currently in D14 (top of map to left). You've been through D15, 13, 11, 1, 9, and 10. I don't recall you going through anything else. I'm currently putting you at D11 since the last vote seemed to lean to exploring the whole of this floor. I will post a new map from maptools sometime today, likely tonight. Anyone who wishes to Listen at the doors of D12, please give me a perception check using the dice tag.[/ooc]

Carter Jenkins moves to the closed door and listens, wondering what he may hear.

Considering the details gained from the goblin chief, and having fought Naulia and her "pet", you think you all know what to expect beyond these doors. Carter leans against the door to listen, buy he hears nothing.

Durmisht draws his sword as he moves toward the door. He taps Carter with his blade and motions for him to open the door.

Carter looks for hinges or other clues to which way the door opens before reaching for the handle of the door. Gripping the handle firmly, the human bard holds up a handle with three fingers raised.

[whisper]On three ... One.[/whisper]

[whisper]Two.[/whisper]

[whisper]Three![/whisper]

With that, Carter twists the handle and throws the door open, clearing the way for Drumisht to enter the room by moving to the north side of the doorway in the corridor.
