All the above are good questions that I have for Bynw as well.  I did a practice roll of the  dice last night, No I did not send it , Really was just practice, and It was not pretty. lol. Which got me worried if Bynw does call for an official dice roll.

Evie out of fear for what may happen now and in the future, I will say that Night Dancer is happily eating hay in Grecotha. and this is just a nice black destrier out of the Grecothan stables.

Good point about the fire, Evie.  Hope my little post doesn't conflict with your scene.  I already had this mostly written in my head by the time I saw your post.   :)

OK, good to know. Although since a destrier, by definition, is still a trained war horse, and this one doesn't know me, and is currently possibly spooked by the nearby fire/smoke (although as a trained war horse he is probably reasonably bomb-proof), I shall proceed with all due caution.  Sure you don't want to make my life easier and make him a rouncey gelding like Sextus' Murray?  ;)

No worries; I'm outside in the stables at the moment, so there's no conflict with your scene at all.

Telekinesis is one of Washburn's listed traits, and your character template says your average difficulty for this would be a 2D6 roll, but if what you are trying to lift is heavier than usual (it was a beam, wasn't it? Not just something small like, for instance, a tankard?), then my guess is that you might need a 3D6 roll.  But yeah, that's more of a call for Bynw to make, and I suspect he's at work right now.

Revanne, Wonderful to have you join us. Yay! I do hope this means you are starting to feel better. To discover the best way to pronounce Priest Columcil's name, I found Saint Columcille (kŏl´əmkĬl´) [Irish=dove of the church]. Will this pronunciation do. I am glad Father Columcil can handle animals as well as his father does.  ;D

Darcy wondered what he could do.  He was no physician, though he knew a few remedies for seasickness he was sure the nobleman would not appreciate.
LOL. For Washburn's sake, I am going to say "No, please No," to the seasickness remedies.  LOL.

Thank you for the helpful research Laurna, yes that's the pronounciation.

I am feeling in less pain but actually the reason fr being able to join you is being off sick gave me the time to create my character. Oh dear, I do seem to have it in for Dhugal!

Now to see if I can work out how to do a dice roll.

Quick question for Bynw re: dice rolls in game play, since this is a story based game.  If we are writing a scene in which something happens that will call for a dice roll, is it OK to just go ahead and do the dice roll on that page (sending you the results, of course), and then continue writing the scene accordingly to whether we succeeded (rolled a 5 or 6 on any of the dice) or not?  For instance, in Laurna's last scene, could she have gone ahead and done a dice roll and then ended the scene with Wash either succeeding at using his telekinesis power or failing at it and needing to take another action (or stepping back to let Darcy try something)?  Or do we need to wait for you to confirm the dice roll?


Just getting caught up on the threads. Yes what you are doing is fine. Just go about the roll if you think it is needed. All part of the free-form aspect.

I had myself a little giggle earlier in the day (as I put up my outside Christmas lights) about how my writing partners would handle the bath. Nicely done, and discreet from all sides. I was not certain if monastery medieval baths were accomplished in a common bathing room, or if individual tubs were brought into the private room of the guest. It could have gone either way, and I was waiting to see how it would play out. I was giggling as to how Aliset was going to wiggle her way out of a common room bathing scene. But... fortunately discretion and valor have won out, and we need not worry about that. LOL

No, just Nightmares of the disheartening kind and enemies not far behind.  :o

LOL!  Yes, baths would likely have been a bucket or two of heated water poured into a shallow washtub at most (assuming an actual proper bath and not just a pitcher and basin to sponge off with), not the sort that would take a whole lot of water to fill, but a shallow amount sufficient to sit or squat in while scrubbing up and rinsing off.  There were larger multiperson baths available too, but those are more the sort of thing one might find in a bathhouse (aka 'the stews'), not something that would be used by multiple bathers at once in a monastery.  (Since all sorts of other things besides merely bathing could and did sometimes end up happening at public bathhouses, they eventually gained a disreputable reputation, as the bath attendants sometimes offered services of a much more personal nature. This in turn led to bathhouses being looked at very much askance by the Church, but it generally wasn't personal cleanliness that was looked down upon, but the vices that went along with people of both genders bathing together leading to other, more illicit activities.)

[Edited to correct spelling error, though I guess multiperson baths were also multipurposed at times, much to the consternation of the Church!  LOL!)

Evie, I was looking hard at Aliset's picture. The emblem on the dagger isn't perfectly clear but it looked like an eagles head to me. If it is other than that. let me know I and i will change the description. I should have asked you, but it was one am my time when I wrote that; then I forgot to ask this morning.

LOL! I honestly don't know what's on that dagger.  It was just a pendant that KK sent me along with a bunch of fabric for the Mini-Deryni.  Here is the link to the original photo on Flickr, if you want to zoom in and see the fine details, though honestly an eagle would be just as fitting a design as any other, as far as I'm concerned.

(Click on photo to get to Flickr page, and then you should be able to click on the photo there to zoom in for a close view.)

 That's right Jerusha. Add to poor Fathee Columcil's worries. Still, if he gets caught up in a lightening strike aimed at Darcy he won't have to worry about awkward questions any more.
