DM: I wish maptools had a feature where I could force you all to listen to game 'theme' music. I just found my old collection
Tanya: oh lord
Chris: in OpenRPG there is a "/sound" command that lets you play stuff to all the clients
DM: lol
Chris: it was ... misued
DM: are you sure you want to risk telling me that?
Chris: misused*
Chris: one game got a little out of control with Evil Dead quotes
DM: I have everything from opera to gregorian chants to belly dance to harp to african drums to oh dear god what is that?
DM: Tanya, I actually have the music to go along with about half the lyrics I posted for you
Tanya: ooh, that would be handy
DM: Hazard of being a renaissance faire geek
DM: I have way to much Wagner too
Tanya: and don't forget the Conan soundtrack
DM: Now if I could find my CD of harp and mandolin covers of Bruce Springsteen, I could truly torture you all
DM: and yes, booze and a lost bet was involved in the making of said CD
Tanya: good gad
DM: It's kind of funny though.
DM: I get a lot of 'wait a minute, is that Born in the USA?'
Travis has connected.
Tanya: I am trying to imagine it...
DM: I think my ex may have swiped it
DM: Alrighty, we've got a couple newbs with an interest. Try to scare them away
DM:, I think I said that right
Tanya: If we just had Born in the USA in harp that would be effective, I think
DM: Alrighty, our story begins the next day. It is evening, and the tavern is fairly busy
Flint: like I was saying, Quickblades just took these two guys, picked em up right by their shoulders, and threw em right through the wall!!
* Kae enters, looking grim
* Kae gestures for everyone not in Aben's study to join him there.
Kae: I just heard, there was another murder last night. Seafolk district
* Flint sighs, follows. "But you haven't heard the BEST part, I'll be right back..." (to J. Random Patron)
Kae: They haven't found several of the victim's body parts yet. Including the heart and right hand.
* Tanya shudders.
Tanya: (oops)
* Ashling shudders.
Kae: From what I heard, the victim was a sailor, and not a bad brawler. There was obviously a fight, and from what the watch found, it looks like one of the attackers was also badly wounded
Ashling: Oh? What did they find?
Kae: They only found the body about an hour ago
Kae: It might be worthwhile to head over there.
Flint: Maybe the attacker looked for treatment somewhere? Check the healer's guild for shady characters that may have come in?
Kae: It is possible that they are that stupid.
Ashling: Maybe we should head over there.
Rayner: (to Jerath) you'll keep an eye on her?
Jerath: yes.
* Aletha sticks her tongue out at Rayner
Rayner: (to Ashling) Healer's guild or site of the murder?
Ashling: Murder site, before they clean everything up.
Rayner: Let's go.
* Flint gets his things.
Ashling: (we go?)
DM: It takes you about 30 minutes to walk there
Flint: Kae? Can you track?
Kae: a bit.
Flint: He might've left a blood trail. The attacker, I mean
Ashling: Una can try for a scent trail.
* Ashling sets Una down.
Flint: Ok, try for both?
* Flint aproaches the Dwarf
Flint: 'allo, stoutfellow!
Flint: Ew, dirty work afoot it seems..
Dwarven Lawman: Aye, I'm not linkin' the looks of it!
* Rayner gazes about the crowd
Flint: (( do I recognize the victim by any chance? ))
DM: ((kind of hard to, as his face has been pretty well bashed in))
DM: There victim's body lies in a circle drawn in blood
Ashling: (( are there sigils or other marks?))
DM: it looks like someone started to scrawl something, but didn't finish it
Flint: ((there's gotta a be a trail outta here...))
Flint: (( is there a lot of people in the area? ))
DM: A large crowd has gathered
Flint: (to the lawman) I'm sorry if I overstep my bounds sir but these people are gonna contaminate the scene? Can we get them to move along?
Kae: looks like there were several of them.
Dwarven Lawman: (to flint) Ye be right, I be gettin them outta here up 'n quick
City Watchman: You folks need to step back
* Flint assists the dwarf.
Flint: Please move back, folks, let the professionals take a look.
* City Watchman looks at Flint
City Watchman: You best be moving back too
City Watchman: Vhid can handle the matter
Flint: Oh right, I'm with the gnomish investigator's guild. (Bluff)
DM: ((roll it))
Flint: hand him his engineering card (in gnomish)
Flint: Bluff « 1d20+9 ⇒ 6 + 9 = 15 »
Flint: (dangit)
* City Watchman nods
City Watchman: You should talk to Vhid then
* City Watchman gestures at the dwarven lawman
Dwarven Lawman: (to flint) That'd be a mighty big lie yer tellin' there short one!
* Ashling murmurs to Rayner, "Una has found a trail."
* City Watchman 3 goes on alert
Flint: You're right, I'm not with the guild, but I do want to see whoever did this brought to justice, friend
* Rayner murmurs back 'maybe we should go before Flint gets himself, and us, arrested?'
Flint: (Diplomacy?)
Ashling: (which way does the trail lead?)
DM: ((Vhid aka Dwarven Lawman is a PC, so you can roll it, but up to him how he reacts))
DM: ((south))
Dwarven Lawman: (to flint) Yeh have no business in this matter! Why would you be stickin' yer nose aroun' here?
Kae: Easy friend, we are just concerned citizens
Ashling: Yes, let's go.
Dwarven Lawman: (to kae) Might yeh know anythin' to help, then?
* Kae glances at Flint with a raised eyebrow
Flint: It seems like our furry friend has picked up a scent (nods to the weasel)
City Watchman: We can finish here Sir, if you want to take to the trail
Dwarven Lawman: (to the watchman) Aye, I'll stick with 'em and see what they're on about.
City Watchman 2: We should alert more guards. This looks like business unfinished, they may try again soon

Flint: UP NOW: Vhid (on deck: Zoriada)
Bin: ((Couldn't see you or target you with its range sorry))
QuickBlades: (( if she doesn't kill me first. ))
Lan: ((so then i've got a 120ft run with haste?))
Flint: (your speed goes up +30 or double whichever is lower)
QuickBlades: (( np, I figured as much. Also, it isn't very good to have a 1-on-1 situation with a flying spellcaster ))
Bin: ((Figured you two would like it... Lasts for 6 rounds...))
Flint: (yeah, it rocks! I just hope it'll be enough)
Lan: ((yeah so that would put my speed at much do i get if i run though?))
DM: 160
Lan: ((okay))
* Lan is done
Flint: UP NOW: Zoriada (on deck: Flint)
Zoriada: done
Flint: UP NOW: Quickblades (on deck: Ashling)
* QuickBlades continues running without missing a step from the leap down from the building, picking up speed even with a level surface under him.
QuickBlades: ((done))
Ashling: nowhere in sight, eh?
Flint: UP NOW: Ashling (on deck: Bin)
DM: nope
Ashling: (done)
Flint: UP NOW: Bin (on deck: Rayner)
* Bin sees the smoke rising from the building, "Shit..." Runs to the entrance to see if everyone is ok..
random tavern goers: AHHHHHHH!
Bin: ((Done))
Flint: UP NOW: Rayner (on deck: Vhid)
Rayner: Ashling, help the people in the tavern, they may need healing.
Rayner: done
Flint: UP NOW: Vhid (on deck: Zoriada)
* Lan races to the tavern, hoping everything isn't as bad as it sounds!
Lan: ((done))
Flint: UP NOW: Zoriada (on deck: Flint)
DM: Zoriada takes her action
Vhid: ((my bad, didn't have Vhid impersonated))
Bin: ((Np))
DM: and she is done.
* Flint is giving up the pursuit to help the people in the tavern.
DM: city watchmen are arriving, allerted by the fire.
Flint: UP NOW: Quickblades (on deck: Ashling)
QuickBlades: She has either figured out a way to become invisible again, or has circled around us behind the buildings.
QuickBlades: Let's fall back
DM: leaving initiative?
Bin: ((The glittering dust effect is over..))
QuickBlades: (( Ah ))
* Flint heads to the building, opening windows and doors if he can
DM: a bucket brigade has started up, the ocean is fortunately nearby
Bin: ((We out of initative?))
DM: yes
* QuickBlades starts helping with the buckets.
* Bin makes sure most of the people are out of the building...
DM: a few people have minor burns, but in spite of the panic, it doesn't seem that bad
QuickBlades: If we get a few people on the top of the building I can hand buckets up without having to move much.
* Vhid is helping out Bin and Flint
DM: a few spry folk climb up. Seafolk are good at climbing
* Ashling fetches Una and takes her to where Zoriada's blood fell.
Ashling: (we also look for her scent where she was probably standing)
Bin: ((Should i do a search check to see if everyone is out?))
DM: sure
DM: Looks like everyone made it out safely. The fire gets under control quickly, and the tavern owner is quite upset
Flint: (to Bin) hey, are you ok?
Tavern Owner: Oh dear, oh dear, how did this happen?
* Bin replies to Flint as he is walking out fo the building, "Yeah yeah yeah but i feel kind of bad..."
* City Watch gazes at the dead bodies
Bin: Ummm...
Flint: We'd better split. Ashling, got a scent?
* Bin walks up to Flint, "Can i help you, i want to know why she attacked me... Me above all people?"
QuickBlades: (Quietly to Flint and Ashling) What? I think we may need to stay a night or two a the inn
* Vhid tends to the city watchman, recounting the whole storey.
* City Watch nods
QuickBlades: It's the least we can do to to compensate them for the roof.
City Watch: We'll get the bodies out of the way
* Ashling doesn't let them touch Kae.
* City Watch nods sympathetically to Ashling and loads up the other two bodies
* Flint hopes Vhid can do the talking
* Rayner puts down his cloak and starts to wrap Kae inside.
Rayner: damnit. Damnit.
* Ashling helps him.
Ashling: (there are tears)
* Bin being ignored by Flint, Bin approches the tavern owner....
* City Watch gets details from Vhid and offers to write up a report
Flint: (sorry Bin i didn't see it)
Tavern Owner: oh dear
* Tavern Owner wrings his hands
City Watch: What do you want done with the other two bodies, Sir?
Bin: I am sorry for the damages caused by myself... I would gladly play at your Tavern tonight, maybe to help bring in some extra income... I am kind of good with my flute...
Tavern Owner: Did this have something to do with what has been happening in the city?
Vhid: Eh, I be thinkin the evil-lookin' one can be taken as collaterl, but let them tend to the other.
* Ashling calls Quickblades over.
* City Watch nods. The bodies are packed into a wagon and taken away
* Rayner picks up Kae
* QuickBlades wanders over to Ashling
Ashling: (that's what I was calling QB over for)
* Vhid thinkin' everythig be fine at the moment, motions for the watch to be gone.
* Rayner staggers a bit under the weight of Kae's remains
* QuickBlades will let Rayner carry the burden of his countryman and companion, if he desires.
Ashling: Can you help, Quickblades?
QuickBlades: I certainly can. If Rayner doesn't mind.
Ashling: (they aren't countrymen)
* Rayner hands Kae to QB
QuickBlades: (( Oh ))
DM: ((just friends))
Ashling: (( right ))
Tavern Owner: no, it's okay. Just go. Get the villainous dogs that did this!
Flint: Thanks for your help Mr...? (to the Dwarf)
Bin: (in response) I have no idea sir, i myself have just been trying to make due... To be honest those people over there helped me, i really have no idea who they are....
* Vhid , hands on hips, asks Flint was this whole ordeal was about.
* Tavern Owner goes back inside to see just how many repairs will be needed
Vhid: ((throw a what* in there haha))
Flint: We have a personal stake in catching those responsible for this, I guess you could say...
Flint: Some of Ashling's friends in the druid lands have been killed by the same people. I think...
* Bin walks up to the group of people..
QuickBlades: Is there a store in this town that carries healing potions?
Ashling: I think we should go. (wiping at tears)
DM: ((several))
Flint: Let me introduce myself. Jyoqiyuose Flintwhistle. Call me Flint. This is Ashling, and Quickblades, Rayer.... (introdcues party)
Ashling: Oh! I'm sorry!
Flint: Who might you be?
Ashling: Cure Light on QB: « 1d8+4 ⇒ 1 + 4 = 5 »
QuickBlades: Only after you have healed those in the tavern.
Ashling: (( argh ))
QuickBlades: I need to get some potions anyway.
Bin: Hi, My name is Bin Ther... and like the name implies i probably have been there...
Rayner: Sir, we have a friend we need to get home. Perhaps you could accompany us and we could discuss the matter on the way?
Vhid: ((to all)) Names Vhid! A fine ranger and member of the city watch!
* Rayner indicates Kae
Flint: Vhid, Bin ... thanks for helping us today.
Ashling: Oh dear...
QuickBlades: Um... I don't think I have any coin...
* Ashling goes to see if anyone is badly wounded.
* Flint is not wounded.
QuickBlades: (( do we get money as individuals, or as a group? ))
* Bin is five points about being bloodied...
Bin: above*
Flint: Can I ask why they were attacking you Bin?
Rayner: Aben has healing potions at the manor
Flint: (Flint asks this as they walk)
Bin: To behonest i dont know...
Ashling: on Bin:
Ashling: Cure Light Wounds: « 1d8+MOD ⇒ 8 + 4 = 12 »
Bin: ((wow))
Ashling: (( ooh, you got a good one ))
QuickBlades: (( lol ))
DM: ((everyone headed that way can make it back to Aben's without trouble. The folks in the tavern who were damaged get healed up nicely by one of the healers with the city watch))
QuickBlades: (( It's midnight+11 here. I have to get to sleep. ))
Flint: That was quite the spell slinging back there! Maybe they wanted to recruit you!
Flint: Forcefully..
DM: ((okay))
Bin: ((are we stopping?))
DM: ((I am good to keep going a little while longer, to wrap up, if you want
Bin: Maybe, maybe for other reasons...
Bin: ((I dont sleep so idc...))
Ashling: Where's Maksim?
Aben: oh no, what happened?
Ashling: Kae is...
Aletha: no more
* Ashling points to Quickblades.
Vhid: ((i got some psych reading to do and i got some other stuff to do first))
Aben: oh no. Jinan, go get Maksim
Flint: Maybe he shouldn't seeh im like this.
Aben: no, of course not
* QuickBlades takes on a half-somber, half-forlorn look as he gazes out the window.
Flint: It's too ... gruesome
Dan (aka Whingknutt) has disconnected.
Aben: put him....
Aben: leave him wrapped tight.
* Jerath looks at Aletha oddly, then picks up a bundle of cloth sitting in a corner and starts helping wrap Kae
Maksim: what's the matter? Where is dad?
Ashling: Your father fell.
* Maksim sits down abruptly
Maksim: no....
Flint: We'll find the woman who did it.....
DM: So....pick up here next week?
Vhid: ((sounds good...))
DM: I should sleep. Night all
Ashling: 'night!
