Session Three- Down The Rabbit Hole Part II

It was the second day of The Week of Games in celebration of Malissan De Thymes coming of age. The day was young when Shinji Hishiro approached the heroes of bus 15 with a task of the utmost importance, find and save the abducted princess. Reunited and having no other paths to take the party prepared to descend even further into The Chipan Sewer system… that is until the septic waters began to take their toll on the digestive system of the gladiator, Persons, and the investigator, Kosey. In no condition to fight and in need of fresh air and water the pair needed to be escorted out. Baagh volunteered for the job, wishing the party luck and encouraging them to work together. Reduced by four the party of Bus 15 continued their pursuit of The Dr. Peppas.

The trail led them into a drainage room still save for the pumping of reclaimed filth. Sensing a trap John flew out over the waters and was not disappointed as 6 goblins erupted out from concealment. Reacting lightning fast Dryden fell upon the goblins and turned the ambush into a pitched battle. Blades slashed, clubs crushed and bullets flew. In the end The Dr. Peppas proved to be little more than an annoyance. One of the gang members managed to flee, another was captured, and the rest floated dead in the collected waste of Chipan. The party of Bus 15 attempted conventional interrogation methods and proved fruitless until Li utilized a bit of his ancient techniques. He stared into the goblin’s eyes and as his eyes swirled like a spinning abyss the creature’s mind feel into his.

“Who do you work for?”

“The Dr. Peppas…”

“Why do the Dr. Peppas want the princess?”

“We don’t…”

“Who then? Who wants the princess?”

“The Dark Man…”

The Dark Man. The Dark Man was not unheard of to The DOII. Many of their most recent cases revolved around cults and madmen, artifacts and secrets. Each had one common element, the mention of some entity known as The Dark Man. Ghomo(having changed his name from Ghimo during the adventure, lol) had thought The Dark Man a pseudonym for a pagan god but suddenly realized that the Dark Man could be real and could be there lurking in the shadows. The detective shared what little information he could with the others. Most cared nothing for the implications and just wanted to find the missing royal. A few from darker places and backgrounds understood that a bigger darker game was being played and they were just pawns.

In exchange for his cooperation the party allowed the captive thug, Patrock, his freedom. Ghomo even gave him a card and offered him future work with The DOII. Grateful to be spared Patrock fled with the card, his life as a Dr. Peppas over. He had betrayed the leather and if The Big Boss, Chadwick, ever found out his life would be forfeit.

Not wanting to waste anymore time the party of Bus 15 rushed through the sewers after the escaped gang member and the trail of the kidnapped noble. They soon found him dead, pummeled to a bloody pulp. Yet he wasn’t the last 13 other Dr. Peppas, the estimated number of the group that fled with the princess lay strewn about the tunnels. All beaten, all dead. At the end of a long decent waited a trio of well dressed goblins. They weren’t Dr. Peppas and they had no intentions of letting the party pass. John, blood boiling with combat lust, took to the air and released a blast from his Pressure Cannon. The blast flew over the shoulder of the goblin of the red band even as it launched itself airborne. The green and blue band goblins were in his wake and as they bellowed ‘Gremlin Bomb’ their fist connected with the artificial man.

There was a thunderclap and explosion.

A shock wave.

Smoke and water everywhere and when it all settled The Gremlin Attack Squad was ready for combat. At their feet lay the inert Smith, and the unconscious Mecha Pilot. The parties clashed and in short order the goblin mercenaries revealed their superior combat skills and talent for teamwork. The party of Bus 15 seemed on the verge of defeat when suddenly she appeared. Dressed in a red and white battlesuit with feathers of fine swan down and her tiny armored companion; Magi Gemini Ichi, champion of the just, arrived in a wave of divine energy. Here rejuvenating fruit brought energy back to the defeated and her companion bestowed his healing kiss. Given their second wind and utilizing Li’s mind control of goblin with the blue band, the party forced the Gremlin Attack Squad to retreat. Whoever had paid them to leave no witnesses would probably need to get their money back.

Wounded and tired the party continued. It was in the following area that they began to hear a sound not unlike the sizzling of bacon in the skillet. It grew louder even as the party realized that their way out was barred by writhing black tentacles. Blast from John’s strongest attack proved futile and with The Magi Gemini having left presumably to chase The Gremlin Attack Squad the party seemed trapped. It was Dryden that saw the monstrosity’s face first and his blood ran ice cold, his master’s training the only thing that buoyed his sanity. The others weren’t so lucky. Science and Nephilim biology stated that a Nephilim, being the only truly natural race in existence can exude neither good nor evil yet this monster did. The Occult spoke of such dark beings from before the Age of The Ender, elder gods that wanted nothing from man but his suffering. This thing could not exist. The mass of mouths and darkness lowering down from the ceiling was the most frightful beast the party had ever seen. Doubly so for Juan who thought he had seen every type of Nephilim in record. Yet he had never seen one such as that monster that sought to devour the would-be heroes and he hoped to never see another.

To call what followed a battle would stretch the meaning of the word. Those that could attempted to fight the collection of darkness, teeth and tentacles. John Smith frantically tried to blast open an exit for his comrades and the others whose minds could not stand the test cringed in their own excrement. No one had ever heard of such a powerful Nephilim. Not even the circuit champions Relic and Trinity6 were as imposing. Sacrifices were made and a massive hunk of the monster was blown to bits with grenades. Wounding the beast only seemed to incur its wrath. As all hope seemed lost a flute played a tune of challenge and the legendary Nephilim withdrew at its master’s behest.

Fearing that The Nephilim of Madness would return the party collected their wounded and fled through the tunnels coming to a room swollen with blue light. And there she was, finger outstretched and touching a crystal shard, Princess Nivia De Thymes younger sister of Regent Mallisan and daughter of the king. She was enthralled, sightless, and marching to someone else’s tune. The crystal emanated magic of a greater order that only Ghomo(having changed his blah, blah, blah) could sense. Yet he sensed something else as well. A man in all black, a Dark Man, revealed himself. He was smug and confident and in his hand rested a silver flute. He commended the party for defeating The Gremlin Attack Squad and wounding his pet Nephilim. Yet they were too late. He’d gotten what he came for. Casting Princess Nivia aside he gestured toward Ghomo and promised that they would meet again. Ghomo assured him as much and tossed the dark stranger his business card.

Exit The Ender Reborn.

With the princess in their safe care the party was ready to get back to the surface but that is the exact moment that Prince Lucca De Thymes and three dozen Gun Smiths arrived to arrest those that had taken his sister.

To Be Continued…

The Royal Family of North Westing

The Old Kingdom of Westing dates back to the late 20th century. Established by Lisbeth Westing and her warlord husband Reinhold Thymes it started as a small stronghold surrounded on all sides by roving elven Bandit lords and bloodthirsty Orcish Chieftains. It would be almost 2 hundred years before the queendom, as it were, could truly call itself such. Carried from bloody conflict to bloody conflict the young nation made strong enemies and equally as powerful allies. Her traditions were unique and her people strong. The Old Kingdom of Westing was the first on the northern continent to be a matriarchy where succession fell to the oldest female of the line. She was also the first to ban mages in positions of office. This bias would save the kingdom one day.

When The Ender rose to power he used his control over magic and its practitioners to commit mass assassinations leaving many kingdoms without leadership when his dark forces threatened the world. Westing was one of the few places that weathered the culling and thus led the offensive against the Lord of Magic. History exalts the heroes and deeds of those times and no one lives that does not know of the death of The Ender and all magic. It was after those dark times when the royals of Westing began to fight among themselves. In the end Westing was split in two. To the east sat South Westing and the ‘true’ Westing line and to the west rested North Westing and the De Thymes royals. No one knows where the schism began but it created a wedge that would not be sealed.

When Queen Philipa De Thymes and her three daughters died from the Red Pox in 40XX it fell to her young son Falkes to take up rule of the kingdom and for only the second time in history a male sat on a throne of Lisbeth Westing. Many would call him King Falkes, The Unlikely. He was quickly married to a distant cousin and they begot a child. Some say it was a joke of The Gods of Creation that the baby was a son. They named him Lucca and he was doted on by both the king and his wife. Their second child, almost ten years Lucca’s junior, Malissan was a cause for nationwide celebration as she would one day inherit the throne. Though many believed young Lucca was jealous of his sister, the heir apparent, in truth he loved his sibling and had no aspirations for the throne. Yet it was their sister Nivia that Lucca truly poured his love. Being nearly eighteen years younger than her brother he has been her protector and when rumors began to raise about her strangeness it was Lucca whose wrath the naysayers feared.

Magi Gemini Ichi

Fighting injustice by divine light/ Winning love by moon light/ When she comes it’s a welcome sight/She is the one dressed in maroon!

Amongst the broken and desperate there has arisen a tale of a beautiful girl with wings of ivory that descends upon the masses with food and joy. She fights injustice with her trusty but weird looking sidekick and stands for what is right.

She will never turn away from a friend/ She is the one whom the miserable depend/ She is the one on who all just can depend/ She is the one dressed in maroon!

When the chips are down and your party seems on the cusp of defeat never fear for maybe, just maybe, Magi Gemini Ichi will be there. After all she is the one dressed in maroon!

Yep, the Beast acted accordingly...like a BEAST!

They both died by a bandolier of grenades, that happened to be on Do. El Beasto just figured why waste a bunch of perfectly good grenades.

We now met the end boss....(or was he just a pawn as well?) after reading the update, it got e thinking that if the Endor dies...so does magic again.

We need to imprison him for all eternity.

Session Three- Down The Rabbit Hole Part II.V

Playing my part for the party I escorted the two sick members toward the exit. Ironic that the overweight animal tamer and the hyperbuff wrestler were the two to get sick. I guess none of us are safe from filth and dysentery no matter what our physical makeup. We rounded what I assumed was the last corner though truthfully I couldn’t remember. I let my rifle lead and gestured for the sick to cling to the wall. The gladiator nodded and then emptied his stomach content. Thankfully his clothes were already dirty from our time in the filth. Pissed, Persons took the lead and grabbed the rungs of the barely visible ladder.

I waited for them both to exit the dark and step into the light before I gave one fleeting look back the way I’d come. The others were most likely joined in combat with gang members. They could probably use my guns and my aim. I climbed the ladder one handed in order to keep my grip on my pistol. I blinked as sunlight assaulted my eyes but even blinded I recognized the sound of heavy firearms. I complied when the soldiers ordered me to drop my guns and to assume the position. Kosey and Persons were already in cuffs. I recited my rank and division with my hands above and behind my head and gave them no reason to abuse me. They arrested me and shoved me around. One even made a comment about my sandy colored skin, a sure sign that my family was from Krentine, before placing me with the others. They were too sick to complain.

Then, his majesty, Lucca De Thymes arrived in a blur of fury. I bowed with all of the soldiers and watched as he hurried into the sewers with 3 squads of Gun Smiths, my brother-in-arms. I guess the princess really was down there.

If dps means damage per second why do the ninjas and raheem fall into that category?

ok as a person that plays alot of MMO's Dps is not always a single standard as in how damage is done. the ninjas (not really darnell) "can" do an amazing amount of damage in a short period of time(sneak attack). as i watched lance easily dispatch our enemies through kills, his damage output can even 1 shot an enemy when sneak attack is added. he fits into the damage role, instead of writing damage i write DPS cause its shorter. for raheem he has 2 opportunities to do dmg even though they might not do alot we can calculate it as such;
Lance per turn does 6 dmg which is half or more of the average party health and possible enemies we are fighting.
raheem does 3 dmg with a gun or what ever item he is using, then his nefalem does 3 dmg also totaling 6 per turn. im using half of the the die they roll for damage and adding generic dmg modifiers for their average if not lowest dmg output.
i think i might have messed this explaination up but, i hope you get the idea.

Okay is see. I thought you were addressing overall role in the party dynamic. I didn't realize the scope of your analysis. In WOW your assessment is flawless but in tabletop rp there are more aspects than DPS, Tank, Support...

i agree but i have been basing it since we started playing. we have been fighting since we started the campaign. so i am goign by what i have seen so far. i would go down the list but i believe i have been accurate. but in RP those same things i listed still apply, just might have a slight rework on how it is done. i am aware there are more but can you tell me in this fast paced adventure we have been in where those "other" aspects would have played a major role in us getting to the princess?

124 Re: The Rising of The Nightmare Moon on Thu Apr 25, 2013 6:47 pm

I wonder if you realize that every encounter, every battle, is a chance to roleplay. Your assessment is valid in a world where battle is the only thing but even while crawling through a pickle strewn sewer a chance to roleplay is a bright decision away.

yes lem but i think you fail to realize that everything we do in this game is a combat situation, whether or not your in actual combat or just trying to get your group into a humans only bar. If lets say a group of four elfs, a really good group that works together IN EVERYTHING, tries to get into a humans only bar. there are certain roles each person takes to help achieve there goal. their's (chad) the "tank" who leads the party and/or conversation to try to enter the bar. their's the support (shawn) who helps chad prove his point on why hes getting into the bar. their's dps (pat)who says fuck it and tries a more "rough" tactic or good cop bad cop kinda thing in the background. and then a healer (khourie) who tries to calm everone down if things get out of hand, the wrong words are said or something went wrong and the healer has to smooth talk his way to calm things down. and in actual combat roles of course change depending on the person. but the same thing they did out of combat the same style of play can be used. so at the end i agree with pat we all have our roles to play tank, dps, surrport and healer. and having to much of one role wont make a good party, a group of all "leaders" and each one of the is going to want to do there own thing and hte party and game falls. a party of all HOT shot dps will all get them selfs kill fast. and a party of healers who talk first and then try to talk later well get there asses whiped.

I think that for the VERY SIMPLE fact that at the end of the day this is a game we play. its not real life.
