(10:04:16 PM) CdrTKirr: Oh?
(10:04:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Percy has a holodeck adventure in store for us!

(10:06:13 PM) Percy: I know that. You're upstairs.

(10:06:29 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Well, yes, but...maybe I was taking a nap.
(10:06:50 PM) Percy: That...is sadly possible.

(10:14:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::As confused as he imagines the rest of them are, despite something of an inside track on how Percy tends to operate off duty, he pulls on a pair of sneakers which, in addition to a black pair of sweats and a Starfleet blue standard issue t-shirt, should leave him perfectly mobile.:: And yet, why do I get the feeling like I should be armed?
(10:14:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: pulls on her riding suit (expando version) and head to the fun ::

(10:20:32 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Twenty questions?
(10:20:54 PM) Percy: That's cheating.
(10:20:55 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: almost runs into McKnight, not noticing that he's stopped short in front of her :: Aik!! Sorry! :: peers ahead of him and sees Percy in her getup :: Whoa.
(10:21:36 PM) CdrHarper: :: shows up in comfy shorts and a SF blue tee :: Dibs on the rogue!!!!
(10:21:48 PM) Percy: Woohoo!
(10:21:58 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Seeing as how I don't see any boffer swords...Ranger's mine.
(10:22:06 PM) CdrHarper: Only because I play one in Universe of Warquest.
(10:22:17 PM) Percy: (Lmao)
(10:22:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: So a fantasy game.
(10:22:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: moans :: You probably need a healer...
(10:23:04 PM) CdrHarper: Of course we do. And a tank.
(10:23:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Frowns slightly :: I can certainly see the fun in keeping this a surprise...but some notice might have been nice. I'm a little out of practice with a bow.
(10:24:06 PM) Percy: Yup! ::She indicates a large crate behind her:: In there are weapons for Barbarian, Warrior, Rogue, Ranger, Cleric, Sorceror, and Druid. And no those last two are not the same, goddamnit.
(10:24:56 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::taps her chin, pondering, while others claim their roles::
(10:25:19 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm not sure of the difference between a few of those, not really being a fantasy buff.
(10:25:47 PM) Percy: They're each equipped with sensors that connect to the statistics of your character, so even if you are not a CRACK shot ::She eyes McKnight with a smirk:: the creatures in game will still get hit as though you were.
(10:26:08 PM) Percy: As for me, I'm the paladin. ::She grins.::
(10:26:13 PM) Percy: Oh, right, of course.
(10:26:24 PM) CdrHarper: :: mumbles about paladins being overpowered ::
(10:27:12 PM) Percy: Sorry sir. Barbarian is a high offense, but their primary power is unnatural rage, so they are reckless and have lower defense. Warrior is a straight soldier, balanced between strength and constitution.
(10:27:18 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::is sad that there is no studded leather and magical mandolin in the box::
(10:27:35 PM) Percy: (Oh crap I forgot about the bard!)
(10:27:52 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Everyone always forgets the bard. Except when you use a pile of dead bards for cover.)
(10:28:04 PM) Percy: (I HIDE BEHIND THE PILE OF DEAD BARDS!)
(10:28:10 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (ROFL)
(10:28:13 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (We just watched that movie the other day. I lol'd)
(10:28:30 PM) Percy: ("There's 34 more of me." Also, thank god for you people for respecting DeadGentlemen Productions)
(10:28:55 PM) Percy: (Also, if you want to play the bard, we can pretend that Percy just forgot to mention it)
(10:29:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Silently crosses over to the crate, withdrawing a slightly undersized longbow between five and six feet long with a recurve at either end. Taking the drawstring in hand, he pulls it back a bit appreciatively.:: Not bad. I don't suppose you simulated some gloves or something? I'm not out of practice enough to forget I'll want those.
(10:29:41 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (*makes SRS BSNS noises about party balance!!!!*)
(10:29:52 PM) CdrTKirr: :: enters the holodeck in the same outfit she wore at the party with wrapped slippers, as her wardrobe is somewhat limited and it fits the situation, and looks to the crate in confusion ::
(10:30:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smiles when T'Kirr enters ::
(10:30:29 PM) Percy: Rogues are....thieves and assassins, Rangers are wilderness-walking ranged fighters, Clerics are Healers, Sorcerors are- Oh hi T'Kirr!
(10:30:35 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (So.. Percy, you're Lawful Stupid?)
(10:30:41 PM) CdrHarper: :: rummages through the box and finds a pair of daggers :: No wonder they never dropped in UoW, they were in this box all along!
(10:30:44 PM) Percy: (No no no. I'm Lawful RETARDED)
(10:30:57 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (My bad.)
(10:31:25 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: snags daggers from Harper :: I'm doin rogue things tonight...you can heal me!
(10:31:33 PM) CdrHarper: Nowai.
(10:31:39 PM) Percy: (hah!)
(10:31:41 PM) CdrHarper: :: takes the daggers back ::
(10:31:55 PM) Percy: (Honestly I'm usually the Chaotic Neutral Bard)
(10:31:57 PM) CdrTKirr: :: perks eyebrow at Percy :: Hello. I'm... unfamiliar with what I'm supposed to do.
(10:32:00 PM) CdrHarper: You can pewpew, I'll stabstab.
(10:32:04 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: glares :: Your parts warranty is wearing out.
(10:32:45 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: takes staff :: Fine, I hurl fireballs...watch your back.
(10:32:56 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::quietly picks up the Masterwork Mandolin of Regeneration +5::
(10:32:56 PM) CdrHarper: How many times have I saved you in the battlegrounds when somebody thought you were an easy kill cuz they couldn't see me?
(10:32:57 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (*I'll*)
(10:33:13 PM) Percy: Well, you basically pick a character archetype, then grab your equipment and we go.
(10:33:15 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Pfft!
(10:33:56 PM) CdrTKirr: :: eyes McKnight and his bow ::
(10:33:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: considers :: And there's a story we play through?
(10:34:13 PM) Percy: Ehehe...oh my yes.
(10:34:25 PM) Percy: *ahem* I mean, yes sir.
(10:34:26 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::also slips a variety of small daggers into various concealed places on her person::
(10:34:50 PM) CdrTKirr: What is left in the box? :: peers over the edge ::
(10:34:57 PM) CdrHarper: :: whispers to Carre :: Be quiet or I won't make you any more potions.
(10:35:16 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Buckles a swordbelt, containing the basic one-handed broadsword to supplement his apparently awesome ranged game. McKnight knows what this game they're about to play is, but he doesn't know it well enough to have the clearest handle on up close ranged feats, let alone whether his character actually has them or not. ::
(10:35:25 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::thinks to herself - Commander Harper is an alchemist? Bartender?::
(10:36:11 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (hands McKnight a piece of paper declaring that he has Point Blank Shot)
(10:36:37 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (sneaks out to the living room to get her PHB >>;)
(10:36:40 PM) Percy: Looks like...there's still the sword and shield for the warrior, the hammer for the barbarian, the Cleric's amulet and mace, and the Druid's staff.
(10:36:51 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well, that sounds like it's worth a try and could be fun.
(10:37:25 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Tentatively tests the point of a bodkin arrow from his quiver before slinging it over his back.::
(10:37:30 PM) CdrHarper: And the rest of our armor? I need some good looking leathers to be a proper rogue, you know.
(10:37:49 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks into the box, and then to T'Kirr, to see what she'll pick ::
(10:38:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Commander has a point.
(10:38:30 PM) Percy: Oh! Right. Hold on.
(10:38:58 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (Point Blank Shot, Far Shot, Precise Shot, Rapid Shot, Shot on the Run... but for the last you also need the Dodge and Mobility feats!)
(10:39:00 PM) CdrTKirr: :: picks out the amulet and mace, hefting the latter to test its weight :: The cleric heals the party, correct? Where is my... :: looks in the box :: Bandages?
(10:40:22 PM) Percy: :: She runs to a side panel, before opening it and pulling out a laptop-sized scanner.:: Alright, this will scan your body and implement your measurements into the replicator on the other side of the room, which will pop out your appropriate armor.
(10:40:38 PM) Percy: :: She begins scanning them one by one.::
(10:40:44 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::marvels at the scanner:: ooooo.
(10:41:37 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ;
(10:42:02 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::dons her armor, moving and testing flexibility:: Yay! Ready!
(10:42:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: is scanned and walks to the replicator ::
(10:42:38 PM) Percy: :: Looks to T'Kirr:: The amulet taps into your character's healing abilities. But...there's a first aid kit next to the replicator if it'd make you feel better.
(10:43:18 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Well being fairly new at this, I suppose I'll try a warrior. :: picks out the sword and shield ::
(10:43:19 PM) CdrTKirr: :: turns the amulet over and presses it to her arm, trying to figure out how it works ::
(10:44:21 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: is scanned, finds a robe in the replicator :: Umm...its blue.
(10:44:34 PM) Percy: Is...that a problem?
(10:44:38 PM) Percy: Would you prefer red?
(10:44:54 PM) Percy: Or do you just want the yellow pointy hat?
(10:44:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Yes please.
(10:45:00 PM) Percy: Alrighty.
(10:45:04 PM) CdrHarper: :: finds a sleek suit of black leathers :: Oh yeah.
(10:45:20 PM) Percy: :: Pokes about at the scanning thingy, and a red robe pops out::
(10:45:22 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: glares daggers at Kate ::
(10:45:25 PM) CdrHarper: Oooo, and poisons, and throwing knives...
(10:45:37 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Walking over to the replicator in turn, he holds up and inspects a chain shirt. Shrugging, he goes at it, and while it takes him a moment, he finally manages to wrestle the thing on.:: Oh...wow. Suddenly, I'm 20 pounds heavier...and yet I somehow just feel so damn cool.
(10:45:55 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: So Percy, do we take friendly fire by chance?
(10:46:04 PM) Percy: ...::mutters to herself:: Heh, fattie.
(10:46:07 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: waves the sword around a bit ::
(10:46:09 PM) Percy: (that was to McKnight)
(10:46:21 PM) Percy: As long as the safety protocols are on, there's no friendly fire.
(10:46:42 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oh...are they on? :: smiles sweetly ::
(10:47:00 PM) Percy: (No, because I want you all to die)
(10:47:02 PM) Percy: Yes, they're on.
(10:47:07 PM) CdrHarper: :: rummaging through the rogue kit with glee! ::
(10:47:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::This feeling is intensified by the addition of some dark leather boots, and a hunter green cloak which he throws over his body with relish, pulling up the hood.:: I heard that...fortunately, you also remembered gloves, so my fingers at least will thank you.
(10:47:26 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (I'm wannt to toss a fireball upside Kate head for not letting me stab. LOl )
(10:47:39 PM) CdrHarper: (she called dibs fair and square! )
(10:48:18 PM) Percy: That's good, Mr. Hood.
(10:48:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: This is pretty hard to use.
(10:48:47 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Donning this further protection, he now tests out the drawstring properly, pulling it back almost to his ear before releasing.:: Okay, yes. I think we'll get along just fine.
(10:49:20 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: puts on the nice red robe with the yellow pointy hat, waves around her staff :: Yeah this'll work.
(10:49:40 PM) Percy: The sensors will compensate for any awkwardness that the actual weapon itself causes, sir.
(10:49:40 PM) CdrTKirr: :: finishes pulling on her armor and looks herself over, surprisingly pleased at its fit and picks up her mace and amulet ::
(10:49:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks over to the replicator and finds the full plate and stares at it ::
(10:50:52 PM) Percy: Alright, allow me to set the scene for you, then.
(10:50:54 PM) CdrHarper: :: after working her way into the leathers and equipping all her gear, she emerges looking damn good ::
(10:51:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: listens as he tries to figure out how to put on all this armor ::
(10:52:08 PM) Percy: ::and with that, she puts away the boxes, and presses a button on the wall, activating the holodeck. The crew find themselves standing in the center of a bright courtyard of a castle.::

(10:54:09 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: as T'Kirr helps ::Maybe I should have I started with something a bit more lightly armored.
(10:55:36 PM) ColDougMcKnight: I'm sure you'll get used to it, sir. I've read that actual knights could manage everything up to an including cartwheels in their armor with enough practice.
(10:55:42 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (and)
(10:56:38 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: smirks :: Hopefully the program will fix my own clumsiness in this aspect too.
(10:56:45 PM) Percy: We are a band of adventurers that has been called on by the King on the day of his daughter's intended marriage. He has received several death threats and has had the guard put a stop to two assassination attempts on the intended prince-to-be's life, and is beginning to worry that there is some sort
(10:58:22 PM) Percy: of guild that wishes to prevent the marriage and the succession it will eventually lead to from taking place. He has called you to the castle to work in the crowds on the day of the wedding, and prevent any attack from reaching the temple at which they will be wed.
(10:58:51 PM) Percy: It sounds like a simple enough job for a hefty amount of gold....::Over the top dramatic voice:: ...or is it?
(10:59:15 PM) CdrHarper: :: smirks :: It had better be hefty.
(10:59:40 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: There's usually good food at weddings, right?
(11:00:02 PM) Percy: So long as you're not a vegetarian, yeah.
(11:00:14 PM) Percy: Any other questions?
(11:00:22 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks around at the setting, appreciating the program's attention to detail in making the castle look well worn ::
(11:01:05 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: finally stands up in the shining full plate :: This is our king, correct?
(11:01:18 PM) Percy: That's correct.
(11:01:31 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: This seems to be set in the Classic Earth medieval period, given the architecture and flora.
(11:01:33 PM) Percy: His name is Corwin I, son of Oberon.
(11:01:40 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Hee.)
(11:01:48 PM) Percy: (And if you can name that reference, I give you a cookie)
(11:02:00 PM) Percy: (...except for Mike because I made him read those books)
(11:02:07 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Damn.)
(11:02:25 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Then it looks like our duty is clear.
(11:02:45 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: picks up the sword and buckles it to his belt, and slings the shield across his back ::
(11:02:53 PM) Percy: Indeed.
(11:03:03 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: finds himself knowing how to move in this armor allofasudden ::
(11:03:15 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Shall I start with the castle staff, then? Generally a good place to get rumors.
(11:03:28 PM) Percy: That may be a good idea.
(11:03:29 PM) CdrHarper: I'd check the tavern.
(11:03:33 PM) CdrTKirr: Perhaps the kitchen?
(11:03:36 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Being a bard and all.
(11:03:51 PM) Percy: Of course. Alright then, let's begin.

(11:09:23 PM) CdrTKirr: Any sign of royalty?
(11:09:46 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::flirting with bored-looking guards at the back gate:: Wow, there sure are a lot of people here! You boys are so BIG and STRONG and BRAVE to be here protecting everyone, ::bats eyelashes, lays it on thick::
(11:09:47 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I'm sure they're all behind closed doors, but the threat's out here somewhere.
(11:10:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: With all the King's guards they'd be stupid to try a direct assault.
(11:11:32 PM) CdrHarper: :: saunters into the tavern with Roxy ::
(11:11:39 PM) Percy: :: Percy goes about looking remarkably holy and virtuous as she walks with purpose towards the temple. Best to scout out the grounds first. She'd put a short randomize code on the exact events as they're supposed to progress so even she doesn't know what'll happen first.::
(11:11:59 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: starts to follow Percy for lack of a better idea ::
(11:12:32 PM) Percy: Guard 1> Ehehe...it's not so bad. Hell, King Corwin says theres a cask of ale for each of us if we serve well today!
(11:13:08 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks to the large inner gates and follows behind the shiny ::
(11:13:48 PM) Percy: We should scout the area around the wedding, I think, just to make sure there aren't any other entry points we don't know about.
(11:15:09 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Wow, a whole cask? Maybe you'd have enough to share with me! But how well does the king treat you? I mean, ale is nice and all, but what if someone offers you a year's salary to look the other way for a few minutes, hmm? ::grins slyly and brushes a hand nonchalantly against her coin pouch::
(11:15:30 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Alright, perhaps there's some sort of hidden passage.
(11:16:22 PM) CdrHarper: :: makes her way to the darkest corner of the tavern ::
(11:18:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Ascends the ramparts, and takes a good long look, hoping to notice if anything seems different, out of place even from his new vantage point.::
(11:18:22 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: follows Harper but stops the tavern wench and orders two beers ::
(11:18:26 PM) Percy: Guard 1> ::Frowns:: When that just wouldn't be right, would it? I mean, we get paid well enough, and the king's good to our families. But...well, a year's salary...could make my boy an apprentice with that...::He licks his lips::
(11:19:32 PM) Percy: :: The guards up top seem competent enough, but there are a couple of places where the walls have been worn enough to climb up, if the person doing so was athletic enough.::
(11:19:41 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: nods encouragingly at the guard :: And what do we know about this prince guy, anyway, am I right?
(11:20:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: listens to what conversations she can pick up as they pass through the throng ::
(11:20:29 PM) CdrHarper: :: when the wench comes back with their beers, she orders one for everyone in the dark corner ::
(11:21:02 PM) Percy: :: The temple does have a basement door, but it seems to simply lead to a smaller chapel and room for poorer families to sleep in. Still, there's a stairway up to the temple, so it's a potential entrance::
(11:21:12 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Alright, then. In that case, he gets moving, beginning a proper circuit. On the off chance he's lucky enough to catch some ambitious athlete in the act, he'll happily test this bow with a bit of wall cleaning.::
(11:21:37 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Hm, think we should check in there?
(11:22:13 PM) Percy: :: The people in the dark corner note Harper's giving nature, and stop being quite so terse.:: So what, you new 'round here or somethin'? 'Cuz ah tell ya, most folk don't buy US drinks.
(11:22:27 PM) Percy: It can't hurt.
(11:22:49 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: Oooh, nice touch.
(11:23:01 PM) CdrHarper: Most folk don't realize that you all tend to know what's what around town, you know what I mean?
(11:23:52 PM) CdrHarper: :: blinks at the sudden realization that the holodeck made her voice fit in appropriately ::
(11:23:54 PM) Percy: Guard 1> Damned right! He's just an outsider. Some knight from a hundred miles away. Only...I heard...
(11:24:22 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: heads into the basement door, watching for trouble ::
(11:24:28 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: I can't believe they'd leave this unguarded.
(11:24:51 PM) CdrTKirr: Perhaps it hasn't always been?
(11:26:14 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: looks around for signs of a struggle ::
(11:27:04 PM) Percy: :: Joins Blackthorne in his search, going through and under the beds:: There doesn't appear to be anyone here.
(11:27:10 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::leans in interestedly, letting her blouse fall open just so:: Oh, do tell!
(11:27:24 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Okay! Just so it doesn't come out of nowhere, I shall be providing some of the local flavor of the dark corner variety!)
(11:27:53 PM) Percy: Guard 1> ::Beginning to sweat embarassingly:: Oh, it's nothing...only I heard...
(11:28:00 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: Let's check up the stairs.
(11:28:24 PM) CdrTKirr: :: stands in the center of the room watching, listening ::
(11:29:19 PM) Percy: Guard 1> Well, I heard he was cursed! Don't remember who from, now that I think of it, but I know I heard it said.
(11:29:20 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::nods encouragingly to Guard 1 again::
(11:29:50 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Grizzled old drunk #47> ::Wipes some ale out of his grey beard as he gives a laugh:: Aye, I suppose that's true. I can tell you where to find the freshest carrots in market, and my arthritis is good for the weather...but you don't look the sort who needs an almanac.
(11:31:00 PM) Percy: ::T'Kirr can notice now what probably looked like a child's wooden toy at first lying on the floor in a far, far corner. If she examines it, she can tell there's something a little wrong with the little wooden bear.::
(11:31:57 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: Oh my stars, cursed! What sort of curse? Is he some... wicked man? Did he anger some powerful witch? ::affects breathless excitement:: You look like the kind of man who knows these sorts of things.
(11:32:13 PM) CdrTKirr: :: spots the toy in the corner, at first ignoring it, but then something doesn't quite look right and moves over to get a better look ::
(11:32:39 PM) CdrHarper: Clearly, you seem like a man with an ear to the street. :: totally said that wrong but it was fixed, woohoo ::
(11:35:06 PM) ColDougMcKnight: GoD47> Ear, ass...depends on the night. Don't reckon there's much aside from the obvious outside going on worth talking 'bout though. Of course, by the same token, I can't recall a time I ever got excited to tell a story proper after just the one drink.
(11:35:29 PM) CdrHarper: :: flashes a winning smile and snaps her fingers for the barmaid ::
(11:36:09 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: whispers amongst the women, learning little ::
(11:36:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: GoD47> ::Has clearly long since left the first drink of the day long past, but nevertheless grins merrily to see his meaning discerned clearly.:: See, I knew there was something about you I liked. Almost as much as I like, say...a frosty dwarven ale.
(11:37:17 PM) CdrTKirr: :: /examine toy ::
(11:37:20 PM) CdrHarper: :: the beer arrives and she hefts one with the old drunk, clanking mugs ::
(11:37:24 PM) Percy: G1> ::Seems to swell with pride:: Well, the way I 'eard it, he used t'be a...watchamacallit, witch's apprentice or something. Only she was in love with him, and he wanted nothin' t'do with her, so he left. And then...then I hear she cursed 'im!
(11:37:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: walks back over to T'Kirr to see wha tshe's found ::
(11:37:52 PM) Percy: Cursed 'im to be hunted to the end of his days!
(11:38:29 PM) Percy: G1> Now that's not the sort of thing I think's right to bring into our kingdom. But I hear he's a kind enough soul, so...
(11:38:40 PM) ColDougMcKnight: GoD47> Well, there WAS a bit of a fuss last night. Couple o' guys in here...not like you, ye understand. Real mood kills.
(11:39:25 PM) Percy: :: The little bear's eyes look remarkably predatory, and there are what look almost like eldritch carvings around its arms and chest. It makes it look almost demonic. And then...::
(11:39:26 PM) CdrHarper: Yeah? That can ruin a whole evening, don't I know it. Tell me more.
(11:40:09 PM) Percy: ACTION> There is a bestial roar from the South gate, followed by screams.
(11:40:29 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::astonished look:: Why, the poor fellow! That's not his fault at all. In fact, it makes me kind of proud that he'll be prince of our kingdom, overcoming adversity and all! And I never would have known if you hadn't told me! ::patriotic rambling is interrupted by roar::
(11:40:30 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Well, looks like something's about to get good.
(11:40:50 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Can we hear that inside?)
(11:40:52 PM) CdrTKirr: :: whips round, still holding the totem ::
(11:40:59 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Dashes to the wall to get a look at where that came from.::
(11:41:03 PM) Percy: (Oh yeah)
(11:41:05 PM) ColDougMcKnight: (Dashes, even.)
(11:41:23 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (Am I on the right side of the castle to be able to see this gate...?)
(11:41:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: C'mon, let's go!
(11:41:42 PM) Percy: (Probably.)
(11:41:44 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: heads out the door ::
(11:41:54 PM) CdrTKirr: :: rushes out behind Ian ::
(11:42:32 PM) ColDougMcKnight: GoD47> ::Too sloppy to really notice:: Well, they weren't having any of the local brew. Just kept demanding wine. Don't hold with folk like that...mighty queer. All hooded, too. That was a bit strange, come to think of it.
(11:42:35 PM) Percy: ACTION> At the gate, bodies begin to fly as what look like four dire rabid bears charge the gates. Their eyes are glowing red!
(11:42:54 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: ::to G1:: Lawks! Please, hold your ground, brave warrior!
(11:43:00 PM) Percy: :: Rushes after Blackthorne, spear at the ready::
(11:43:12 PM) CdrHarper: (I take it that's also audible in the tavern? Or no?)
(11:43:13 PM) ColDougMcKnight: GoD47> Kept yammering on about the lark, or the park, or the Mark...good riddance, says I.
(11:43:39 PM) Percy: (Yes) G1> ::Goes white, but shakily holds his sword:: Er...yes, madam. Away...foul...creatures?!
(11:43:44 PM) ColDougMcKnight: Nasty. Also, showtime!
(11:43:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: ::: arrives on the scene :: Bears?!
(11:44:09 PM) CdrHarper: Quickly, how many of them were there?!
(11:44:16 PM) CdrTKirr: :: looks from the bears in the distance to the totem in her hand, perhaps tapping into a bit of divination concerning the object ::
(11:44:28 PM) Percy: EVIL MAGICAL bears.
(11:44:54 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::McKnight fumbles only a little, still not entirely used to the gloves, but he gets an arrow nocked quickly enough, and pulls the string to full draw, aiming for the head of the lead bear...thing.::
(11:45:09 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: runs toward the gate and scrambles up a tree where she can see above the panicked crowd, and gets a good line of sight on the bears :: Ack... :: frantically pulls out her mandolin and starts playing a soothing song (that she hopes will put them to sleep for 1d4 rounds unless they make a will save) ::
(11:45:12 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: draws his sword and readies his shield :: Then let them taste our wrath!
(11:45:41 PM) CdrHarper: Hold that thought, we'll be back. :: tosses some coins at the barmaid and drags Roxy out toward the fray :
(11:45:58 PM) Percy: :: Grabs a horse on the way over, mounting it:: For the gods! ::Then raises her spear, and charges::
(11:46:04 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: And...loose! ::
(11:46:04 PM) CdrTKirr: :: is distracted by her divinations by the ring of steel as the sword is unsheathed and looks up ::
(11:46:38 PM) CdrHarper: :: sneaks around behind the bears and draws her daggers, their sheaths coating them in poison because she flicked a hidden switch ::
(11:47:40 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: advances on the bears, defending with his shield ::
(11:48:03 PM) Percy: ACTION> The arrow hits, and leaves the bear reeling. The sleep effects another, making it drowsy and slower but not down.
(11:48:39 PM) CdrTKirr: :: rushes after Ian, but as he approaches the bears, she slows to a mid range and begins casting a protection spell ::
(11:48:41 PM) CdrHarper: :: hones in on the drowsy one, getting behind it as it slows from the pack, and BACKSTABSTABSTAB ::
(11:48:55 PM) Percy: :: Percy drives her spear into the side of one of the bears as her steed passes, leaving a deep wound in its flesh::
(11:49:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: wards off bear claws and teeth as he stabs from behind his shield ::
(11:49:22 PM) Percy: ACTION> The drowsy one takes a few moments to become poisoned, but drops fairly promptly afterward.
(11:49:39 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: notices her friends nearby and plays a magical song of heroism for them ::
(11:51:15 PM) Percy: ACTION> Acting as a general meat tenderizer crew, with the protection spell making a magical barrier prevent the bears from striking, Percy and Blackthorne drop the second bear. The third, still reeling from the arrow, is acting as many animals do when fatally wounded. It charges for the nearest target, which I suppose is probably Harper::
(11:51:32 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: throws down an ice slick and follows up with several fireballs ::
(11:51:39 PM) CdrHarper: :: notes the charge with alarm and diverolls to the side ::
(11:51:59 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: panics and throws a web spell at the charging bear ::
(11:51:59 PM) CdrTKirr: (( omg iceskating bear? ))
(11:52:07 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: (( lawlz ))
(11:52:13 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (with a funny red hat too!)
(11:52:20 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: charges the unwounded bear and bashes it with his shield ::
(11:52:31 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: :: followed by a stab! ::
(11:52:38 PM) ColDougMcKnight: :: Grins in satisfaction, but nevertheless takes aim carefully, unhurried, not wanting to hit one of the melee fighters. Only once he notes Carre lasying into his original target does he attempt to pincushion the fourth dire bear.::
(11:52:46 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: :: lights bear fur on fire ::
(11:54:35 PM) Percy: ACTION> The third bear slips on the ice slick, and is promptly turned into bear ala char before being shield bashed in the face...and stabbed. The fourth gets caught in the side by the arrow as it attacks a group of peasants fleeing, cries out in pain and fury, and turns to flee.::
(11:55:36 PM) CdrTKirr: :: murmurs softly until the barrier fractures and blinks, looking at the mounds of bleeding, smoking bear littering the courtyard ::
(11:56:03 PM) Percy: (Hey, at least it isn't monkey. Then we'd have to eat it :-P)
(11:56:12 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: I never liked bears anyway... :: gives harper a hand up ::
(11:56:16 PM) CdrTKirr: ( you first )
(11:56:44 PM) CdrHarper: :: regains her footing :: I dunno, it looks done enough.
(11:56:48 PM) LtJGAlexisWright: :: scrambles down from tree and uses what meager healing spells she has to tend to the nearby wounded, seeing that none of her party are injured ::
(11:57:05 PM) DrRoxanneCarre: (we're just that good! )
(11:58:23 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: (Two minutes!)
(11:58:34 PM) Percy: :: Dismounts, wiping the blood from the tip of her spear:: Perhaps we could follow the bear? It might lead us to -
(11:58:52 PM) ColDougMcKnight: ::Pulls back the string on his bow, preparing to finish the bear off...then thinks better of it, letting the line slacken, having had the same thought Percy then voices.::
(11:59:29 PM) Percy: ACTION> Another scream is heard from the temple. This one is louder, definitely female, and makes words. "Stolen! They've stolen my dearest Prince! Gods help us all!"
(11:59:35 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: What would cause a bear to- ?
(11:59:56 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:59:57 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(11:59:58 PM) VAdmBlackthorne: PAUSE SIM
(12:00:04 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Perfect ending point!
(12:00:10 AM) Percy: Woo!
(12:00:13 AM) CdrTKirr: Dun dun DUN... really, who uses BEARS as a distraction? o.0
(12:00:17 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Great game, Percy!
(12:00:26 AM) CdrTKirr: Apparently successful Prince-nappers.
(12:00:34 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: *pictures an anthropomorphic bear running off with a prince*
(12:00:36 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Bears are a pretty good distraction, all things considered.
(12:00:39 AM) ColDougMcKnight: Seriously. Worked on us well enough.
(12:00:47 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: I mean, I'd be all like OMFG EVIL BEARS
(12:00:53 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: O.O
(12:01:01 AM) CdrTKirr: With red glowing eyes. *shudders*
(12:01:05 AM) Percy: Lmao, the prince ran away with a furry.
(12:01:06 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: I so totally hate bears...
(12:01:14 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Godless killing machines.
(12:01:31 AM) CdrTKirr: Are they undead? Shall I cast cure on them? No? ... do I have a smite spell at least? >_>
(12:01:40 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Turn! Turn!
(12:02:03 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: What we need is Kuari. I need a dragon to ride.
(12:02:03 AM) Percy: See, I love bears. They're my totem, in fact. But they're also awesome and cause the "OMFG BEARS".
(12:02:18 AM) Percy: ...T'Kirr I need to talk to you.
(12:02:21 AM) Percy: PM!
(12:02:23 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: ohgod
(12:02:31 AM) CdrTKirr: Oh crap, I'm in trouble now.
(12:02:44 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: My totem is Wrath of Air. *nods*
(12:03:37 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: speaking of which...
(12:03:38 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Stoneskin.
(12:03:41 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: What what.
(12:03:45 AM) Percy: lmao
(12:03:46 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Jason, you didn't remind me to farm frost lotus.
(12:03:58 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: I told you I'd forget.
(12:04:00 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: HOW DAER U
(12:04:20 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Remember we're gonna start early with who is there to clear Ulduar trash for the weekly.
(12:04:22 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I was too busy spamming f5 on MMOchampion
(12:04:33 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Yes yes.
(12:04:52 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: And then hopefully Sindragosa! THE DARGUN
(12:04:59 AM) CdrHarper left the room (quit: Exit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(12:05:27 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I need flask to solo-heal Dreamwalker.
(12:05:34 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: plz get it
(12:05:41 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Nah, flask is a crutch
(12:05:43 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: just like pants
(12:05:48 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: no flask, no pants, it'll be fine
(12:05:54 AM) CdrTKirr: heals are a crutch
(12:05:58 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: srsly

(12:06:26 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: not mana efficient!
(12:06:35 AM) DrRoxanneCarre: *waves* Night guys
(12:06:36 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I AM BEING PREPARED FOR ADDS OK
(12:06:46 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: <3 nini Brat
(12:06:49 AM) DrRoxanneCarre left the room (quit: Exit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
(12:06:51 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night!
(12:07:14 AM) Percy: Pants!
(12:07:21 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Where!
(12:07:36 AM) CdrTKirr: I miss the days of EQ1 where I could keep 6 mezzed at once =/
(12:08:01 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Pants??
(12:08:10 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I never played EQ really :(
(12:08:37 AM) CdrTKirr: Good memories...
(12:08:48 AM) CdrTKirr: Best spell ever, minor illusion
(12:08:54 AM) Percy: Not here :-D
(12:09:01 AM) CdrTKirr: I turn into the nearest object
(12:09:31 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: but like.. Blizzard is supposed to be announcing the priest class changes today and I have been checking ALL DAY
(12:09:31 AM) CdrTKirr: Drop a platinum coin, cast minor illusion, pick the coin up, and watch the people running by stop to try to pick me up. =D
(12:09:37 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: and there's only 3 hours left
(12:09:40 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: hahaaa XD
(12:09:58 AM) CdrTKirr: Aww, the suspense!
(12:10:14 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: It's killing me :(
(12:10:33 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Chill out! It's months away from actually taking place!
(12:10:53 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: My boyfriend is like "why are you so anxious?" and I'm like "you wouldn't be asking me that if priests had been announced this morning and your shaman changes were still pending"
(12:11:04 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I know, but blizzard promised me cake today!
(12:11:10 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: DELISHUS CAEK
(12:11:14 AM) Percy: ...I love being around fellow nerds.
(12:11:17 AM) Percy: It's so awesome.
(12:11:28 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: <3
(12:11:29 AM) Percy: I mean, I don't play WoW, but still. The atmosphere kicks so much ass.
(12:11:32 AM) Percy: <3 All
(12:11:36 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Seriously. :D
(12:11:41 AM) CdrTKirr: Lol
(12:11:48 AM) CdrTKirr: Yeah =0
(12:11:59 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: At least you don't have to wait til the 16th for the paladin changes!
(12:12:05 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Watching that movie and now playing this sim is making me seriously jones for a pen and paper game.
(12:12:26 AM) Percy: Yeah...it's making me antsy form ren faire rehearsal this weekend.
(12:12:31 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: if they'd said priest changes were tomorrow or the 16th or whatever, I wouldn't have been refreshing the page all day today, now, would I?
(12:12:35 AM) CdrTKirr: I haven't played since I was a kid
(12:13:21 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: This did make me miss D&D.
(12:13:47 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I actually pulled out the PHB to look at the bard spells.
(12:14:47 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I was playing D&D in a star trek holodeck and checking for updates on my MMO frequently while screwing around with other online games off and on.
(12:14:53 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: I am a huge nerd tonight. /flex
(12:14:59 AM) Percy: Woo!
(12:15:04 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: That pretty much seals it.
(12:15:32 AM) Percy: I...uh...shot a bunch of arrows at a wall earlier, and then played a free RTS, and then ran a game about roleplaying characters playing roleplaying characters of a different genre?
(12:15:48 AM) Percy: / flexxor
(12:16:00 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: we all win the Nerd badge for tonight, I think
(12:16:05 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: We've gon meta
(12:16:09 AM) Percy: Hoorah!
(12:16:27 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Anytime you are roleplaying a character that is roleplaying another character in a completely different universe, you pretty much win
(12:16:29 AM) CdrTKirr: I look forward to the resolution next week. =) Gotta go to bed now though
(12:16:45 AM) Percy: Alrighty. G'night T'kirr!
(12:16:50 AM) VAdmBlackthorne: Night T'Kirr!
(12:16:57 AM) LtJGAlexisWright: Nini! <3
(12:17:15 AM) Percy: And yeah, pretty much. Although I originally read "meta" as "mecha", and pictured a giant robot made of nerds.
