I'm hoping my writer's block is busted but rather worried about those dice
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Oh my! Revanne, I have tears dampening my cheeks. That was beautifully done. Touching words for a character beloved by many. Thank you for that wonderful scene.

Lots of posts this week/session :) love it.

Rumors and rampant speculations on poor Feyd. It's like he's not liked or something. He's a hero really.

The good Bishop died of natural causes, his healer said so.
Lord Reis died in a hunting accident. A rabid charging stag gored him so severely that healer couldnt put the pieces back together. It was a bloody mess.

It's just coincidence that the two men are CC members. The CC has a bit of a history of loss of members even as far back to its founding. In fact 918 was a very bad year the CC only had 3 members at one point. And generally has 7 members with Saint Camber as the 8th member.

Stuff happens. If it doesn't the world doesn't seem real.

I have a REALLY hard time seeing Feyd as any kind of hero.

Feyd is definitely a hero- To the members of the Black Order of Death. An assassin of the highest caliber. The thing is, even hero's make mistakes. When that  happens, someone is going to catch on. We will be there.

I know from time to time there are folks that have no idea about RPGs looking through this thread and wondering about the dice used. In this game we use only regular normal six sided dice. that's abbreviated as d6's

however if we were playing other games we could possibly use 4 sided dice, 8 sided dice, 10 sided dice, 12 sided dice, 20 sided dice, and even fudge dice.

So here are some photos to show them all off.

This is what a d4 looks like:




This is what a d6 looks like:



This is what a d8 looks like:



This is what a d10 looks like:

Notice the 2 styles


This is what a d12 looks like:




This is what a d20 looks like:



This is what fudge dice (dF) look like:



I hope this answers any questions that anyone might have about dice. But if it doesn't then post away!

When we were kids, we would go to the game store and buy sets of dice in all the sizes. We played some table top dungeons and dragons back then. I still have some of those dice. Um... Somewhere. LOL

So I finally had a mostly quiet hour in which to catch up on reading the last 8 to 10 pages of most recent Forum posts. (That's how long it's been since the last time I was able to catch up on the Forum!) Fortunately I was in a private office when I did so and not at the front desk in the middle of the waiting room, as Revanne's latest scene had me in floods of tears, darn you, woman!

Happy to have you back Evie, even for a short time. Hope things will work out so you can come more often. Always miss you when you are absent.

Thank you Judy.
I have to give thanks to first- an English to Scottish Slang Translator. But in all honesty that made it impossible to read. So then I took a lot of it back to English. Then secondly- DerynifanK put in many corrections to give Columcil a proper brogue.  Then thirdly- Jerusha and Revanne added their skill to the text. It was a fun collaboration.

After all was written as I was thinking of posting, it suddenly came to me that I might need to roll some dice for the Calming spell. Bynw put in his GM wisdom, and yes, I should roll for that as long as Washburn's memories are messed up. I will tell you, I nearly had a panic attack. I was terrified to roll. I didn't want to change what I had spent a week writing. I added 3XP to the roll and did a lot of fingers crossed.  Amazingly it worked. That was such a relief.
I posted it as soon as I could after that, so that no more dice rolling could be called into play.   ;)

Laurna, that was a lot of work for that piece but it was all for the good of the story! Love the new pieces, including the new one by DFK which is also a lovely piece of writing!! Keep it up, gamers!
