    While I would love to continue to play, I will only slow you down. We are short handed at the second job, as a result I am working 5 to 6 days a week. Maybe after the new year things will settle down.
  2. BONES I would like to see: Cleric armed with a mace and shield, both male and female of the human persuasion.

    New post is up for those of you who are still with me. Update: I finally got a cord for the laptop and have been plugging away at the post that is now up. We are back to school and I still have been very busy. I have missed playing this and hope to be able to keep this going. I will give you all till the 9th of September to reply. If no one replies by then, then well, I will shut this down. Until then.

    Steelhead 1 You wake up on the morning of the first day of Steelhead. At your meeting on the docks, Desmond accepted the adventuring contract and from there, the last 2 days have been a whirlwind. The rest of that day, the 4th of Gateway, was spent acquiring provisions for the trip and planning. It was decided that there were only two logical places that the greenish streaks could be coming from, the dwarfish mine and Castle Triskelion. The river come directly from Castle Triskelion and a creek from the mine, Mine Creek, feeds into the river. The provisions include enough food for 10 people for a week, an Adventurer's tent,(a magical tent big enough to hold 10 people, but yet will shrink down to fit in a backpack, warming stones, which when placed inside the tent, will keep the tent at about 65 degrees even when the temperature is below zero and yet will be only slightly warm to the touch, and comes with 10 cots for sleeping.{I am still working on this magic item}), the tent is on loan from the Adventurer's Guild. You left Castra Isca early on the morning of the 5th of Gateway and followed the river south (*See new map), upon reaching the junction of Mine Creek and the River Isca, the greenish streaks were coming from the Isca and not Mine Creek. So you followed the river towards the castle. The road along the river was overgrown, but still made the trek fairly easy and quick despite the cold and the light snowfall and reduced visibility. The days have been fairly cold with the high on Starday (the day after the dock meeting) of only 21 degrees. Yesterday's high was 18 and there was a light snow fall and today's high promises to be even colder. You arrived last night passing through a fifteen foot gate situated between two small towers in a ten foot high wall erected between to mountain cliffs on either side. The gate was made of wrought iron and it opened easily at your touch. You rise and step outside the tent and are greeted by a cold winter's morning with a few small snow flakes drifting down. You camped last night just off the road within site of the castle, (see map {OutsideApproach}, (please be aware that on this map North is actually pointing SOUTH!) you will be just off the road near the edge of the map). The castle is made of dressed light and dark gray stone, you can make out the windows of what you assume are the first and second floors and two towers of what is probably the third floor. There is a gradual ramp to the broad and wooden bridge leading up to, one would assume is the front door. to the north of the ramp you can see a meadow, that is probably grassy in the spring and summer, but which ids covered in a light patchy snow. The area that is marked 'stables' on the map is nothing more than a bunch of broken and burned beams. I await your decision on if you enter the castle or if you turn tail and run.

    Alright folks, new post is up. Well it has been a while, for that I am sorry. School got out and my desire to do stuff evaporated. I think the charge cord to my laptop shot craps so I am out of the laptop. I have found a work around using my tablet and my wife's computer from school. So we can limp along until I can replace the cord, which I will be honest may take a while. I will do my best to try to keep this game going. If I have lost you, no hard feelings.

    You have spent the last twenty minutes outside trying to talk the sergeant at arms into escorting you to the docks, when a young boy runs up, he waits patiently until one of the other guards clears his throat loud enough for the sergeant at arms to take notice. The sergeant at arms listens to what the boy says and takes a slip of paper from him. The sergeant reads the slip of paper and tells one of the men to go get the others. Soon you are being escorted to the river front by a squad of twelve men and women. The journey is short and uneventful. The crowd gets thicker and thicker as you get closer to the river. Finally you arrive at the rivers edge. Small docks stick out into the broad River Isca. Fishing boat line the docks and rivers edge. You are escorted toward a party the includes Master Cutburt, the sheriff and the baroness and a few others. They are examining a pile of glowing green fish. As you become part of the group you notice that the fish are steelhead trout, which is usually a greyish color or a light green with a pinkish stripe down the center and not the glowing green that lays in a pile before you. One of the fishermen is explaining the the fish were dead even before they were pulled out and that even the water has a greenish streak to it. There is discussion about what is causing this and it decided that the baroness will send an adventuring group to find the reason and deal with it as needed. As the discussion is done, the baroness, Penn and Master Cutburt turn and take notice of you and a smile comes to their faces and as one, they say," I know just the party."

    Alright NEWS FLASH. I have exercised the demons that resided in my laptop. They are now fully fit and residing else where.So in short I have my laptop up and running. I have made a new post and will shortly be backing this up so as not to lose anything. Please have a reply up by May 31/2017......just kidding, at this point, I am afraid I have lost a few of you, maybe all of you. who knows. Anyway, If you are still in the game at least post a reply here in this post to let me know you are still wanting to play this. I know I have confused most of you and your waiting on the action........I promise the main event will be starting here shortly. I look forward to your replies.

    Desmond looks at Gayle then looks at her hand on his shoulder and shakes his head. “I definitively need to have a talk with your father. I agree with your compromise. Let us go and talk with the Sergeant. Master Cutburt please go ahead and we will be along shortly.” Master Cutburt nods his understanding and heads out the door. Desmond turns to the others in the group, “What say you? Do you agree that we should go talk to the guards and see if we can go to the river under escort, or should we just stay here?”

    Even though my attack will not work, that is what I was wanting to do, so it skips me and goes to Auberon.If the little bugger is still alive next round AND visible I will nail him for at least a point of damage.
  11. [Pathfinder] The Dragon's Demand

    I will use the Evocation School special ability Force Missile. Auto hit deals 1d4 damage + coupled with Intense Spells, adds 1/2 my level (min of +1) to the damage roll. D4 roll 2+1 =3. (I can see the arvuement that if I can not see him then I can not hit him, if such isnthencase no big deal..... I learned a new ability of my mage is the important thing to me.)

    Sorry for holding up the party. Between work,work,and work it has been hard to find time to post. Now my laptop has crashed and I am left with just the tablet and phone to type replies on.
  14. [Pathfinder] The Dragon's Demand

    (Sorry busy and now the laptop crashes. First roll 29 just kidding that was the d30 I grabbed in my haste. real roll was 15 + something which I can not find so take the 15.)
  15. Colonel Kane's Play by post OSRIC

    Ahahahaha. I lied. May has not slowed down and now for the big NEWS!!!! My laptop has crashed! Yup you read that right. I am working on my tablet now and it has most of the same files, but not all of them, so after school gets out, a week from today, I might be able to pick this back up. I have to do a double check and see what all is missing from the tablet and what I will need to download to it. Also things might be wonky for a bit after we start back up. As I discover that I forgot that one vial PDF. As a side note, two file I have been working for the last three months have been left in CHAOS!! Namely the players guidebook and the Gods of Pandarrow that part of which belongs in the players guidebook are left two the three versions behind where I had them. Anyways I return you to your regulatory scheduled life.
