Semi Free-Form Deryni Gaming / Re: Out of Character (OOC) Thread
« Last post by Laurna on Today at 02:33:58 am »
Shessh, and here I was hoping for a few nights of good sleep. Not the constant brain working to find a way out of what ever the last person wrote.
Now, guess who was the last person to write tonight, and I have to go to sleep with that in may head!  Thanks so very very much Bynw!  ;) This is starting to ruin my house keeping time. To say nothing about dog and horse grooming time. I haven't even put all the Christmas stuff away yet. So I am taking the night off, going to sleep early and doing some house work in the morning. Then we shall see..." :o

By the by, I dearly hope that Meresha is a bad batch. I also hope that it cost the grand duke half his fortune to acquire it. I am going to assume the stuff is very rare and very expensive. Especially if the church has not made it for 40 years.  And I dearly hope all those vintage private collection wines of de Nore's were destroyed a long time ago. In my oppinion, there is no way an army can afford to keep enough Meresha to tip all their arrows in it. I would put my foot down and tell them to prove to me that they can afford it.  :P

Ok, on a lighter note, I am reading a few exerts of Rhys healing, I love Rhys.

Merasha now, as though our life wasn't difficult enough. But two can play at that game and our friendly Infirmarian is Deryni. *Thinks aloud*.

Actually what I am planning on using can make recordings with YoutTube and allow for unlimited number of viewers and of course can record it

I have no idea how live participation would work unless there is some way to record a video chat with multiple participants in different locations, but a video of her answering questions submitted to her would work also.

I think you can do it via several video chat clients.  I know Google Hangouts and Discord both have multi-user video chat options; I'm not sure about recording, but just because I don't know doesn't mean that there isn't a recording option on one or both of those or some other client.  Maybe Zoom?

Sounds like fun to me, assuming KK wants to do it.  :D

Fun with Merasha

Merasha can be delivered to its victim in a couple of different ways. The first way is to hide it in food or drink. Thus any taste of it is masked by whatever one is eating.

If it is delivered via food or drink a Human gets to make a Standard Test. Failure means that they become a bit tired and fatigued. But are able to push through it. All tests while under the influence of Merasha are one pip higher. Thus a regular test will only succeed on a 6. And a Focus will only succeed on a 5 or 6. It is hard to focus when very sleepy. A roll of double 1 could mean that the Human has simply gone to sleep. They can be woken up.

Any Deryni that gets a taste of Merasha in his food or drink must make a Standard Test. Failure means that they loose the ability to use their powers. They also cannot use the Focus action as their minds are out of focus. Rolling a double 1 will cause the Deryni to have convulsions. And like their Human friends. All other tests are at 1 pip higher.

The 2nd delivery method is via a sharp instrument. Be it a hidden needle on a door latch, or from a Deryni Pricker of old Gwynedd. Or even the blade or arrow of an enemy. In addition to any damage in HP that the character may receive from such an attack. Again a Human gets to make a Standard Test to resist the sleeping beast. With the same results as above on Failure.

A Dernyi is not that fortunate. If one is attacked in this manner. The Test to resist is at a Disadvantage. Rolling a 1 on that test and the Deryni will go into convulsions just like he would with the food method of delivery. Again Failure means that the Deryni cannot use Focus and all of his powers are unusable.

And lastly. Any Deryni that links his mind with a Deryni who has been poisoned (failed the Test) must make a Standard Test to resist the invluence or suffer the same fate as his companion.

Merasha's affects don't last long. They generally leave the body after a day or two. Depending on out potent the dosage was that was received. It of course can be extended indefinitely if the victim keeps getting a fresh dose of the poison.

Hiding a long bow or even a short bow is sometimes difficult. A crossbow is easier to hide. Fortunately in this game there is no difference to the damage. Everything does 1 point. See I saved you :D

Yeah, I was just laughing because apparently merasha-tipped arrows shot by a skilled archer with a longbow aren't sufficient for us, we get to worry about the much greater force (and even higher chance of fatal injury to unarmored folk) of crossbow bolts to be wary of on top of that!  Thanks, boss!   ;D

I'm just borrowing from my own native RPG campaign. There is one group that has a long standing tradition of not liking the Deryni in my game world. The entire army there uses crossbows with Merasha dipped bolts. Just to take care of those kind. Easier to capture a Deryni when their mind is muddled and they cannot call upon their powers.
