Actually, how is it that the shape minimizes radar detection? Or is it the elements made into the body?

Well, at least you didn't try to add to it. Thank you. When you have had a bad day, come onto your forums and discover your perfectly serious topic has been degraded into an off-topic flame-fest is just something that makes me seriously angry.

The posts don't go away. At least they seriously shouldn't. Plus well over half our members are bots and only about 5-10% of us still post. Maybe 100 or so active members out of well over ten thousand.

Total purge, delete and archive everything and force everyone to create new accounts.

Jeran had been right, it was indeed a village; a small, stunted village with huts that looked like a lot of trees that had decided to huddle together for warmth. But it was a village. Jeran had stumbled upon it almost by accident, the tree-line and residual fog having obscured the flickers of light that had previously been his guide.

It had taken quite a bit of holding his agility and holding his fiery temper in check to convince the villagers that he was not in fact some kind of demonic creature. However once he had assured them of his physical existence, they had been more then happy to provide him with a meal and a bed of straw in one of the still-standing barns. It smelled odd, and the straw prickled his skin unmercifully, it being still rather tender from his explosive re-entry into normal reality. But it was a bed…

He arose early, having almost no need for sleep. Surprisingly, neither did the village chief, who summoned him to the longhouse. As he stepped over the threshold he noted that the entire village seemed to have turned out to view this spectacle, and apparently to view this strange black-skinned creature that the chief was placing so much faith in.

“The water is sour, our homes are devastated, the food is rotten, our woman are barren” said the chief, his voice dim and cracked with age and ruined by the effects of the curse.

“And it shall be my task to avenge this calamity, and to bring peace and security to your community one again?” Inquired the traveller, careful to keep all traces of sarcasm out of his voice.

“For your own safety and ours, if we send no-one then we shall all die, yet we all have been weakened by the lack of food, the bitter water and the winds that force us to keep constant vigil. If we send you then we still have our strongest to aid his people, and you will be gone from us and we shall at least rest a little easier”

Jeran understood perfectly, it was basic triage. They were desperate, so they had to send someone, they didn’t understand him, so they sent him away, they understood he could be no help to them, so they cared nothing should he fail. The deal was sealed within the hour, and his use of long words had gained him a half-decent iron blade and a travelling garment. The direction was clear: Across the wastelands and to the ancient city of Salintu were the villagers had heard there lay the best chance of finding a cure for this dreaded curse.

Jeran and Tully, I hope you have some long term plans for your characters, because right now I have a really hard time understanding how they will tie in with the main plot. To a lesser extent, this applies to Randomizer as well.

For Jeran: have I understood correctly that your character arrived at Emerald Cliff at the beginning of the storm and has now been there for weeks?

For Tully: can you give me some pointers were Scheiddorf (or whatever) is located in relation to Emerald Cliff and Salintu?

For Randomizer: please, no more spidweb references in character.

Actually he arrived about the same time Shagmar did. So either he'd get there just as S left or a short time before. I have another, much longer RP post to make on another forum so I'll wait a short while or until you as GM tie my arrival in.

Jeran has and always will be. He has been the only character I have ever felt truely comfortable with. Over the years he has invaded every server and PnP game I have ever played. If he has killed one half of the dragons he claims, fobbed off one tenth of the gods of eternal death and evil and overthrown, slain, eviserated, maimed or otherwise defeated one one thousanth of the evil barons, warlords, witches, evil spirits, demons, devils, warlocks, vampires, necromancers, tax-collectors and team-speaking dragons as he claims then Bioware would never have been bankrupted before they even began working on NwN. His appearance on any server were one of his former rivals or allies has made his way to is useually the cause for his instantious IP banning before he defeats every known evil creature in existance there through sheer force of will.

Magic is a generalized term for a force that in no way is obliged to conform with the panting linier nature of reality. The one principle it does adhere to, is that it adheres to absolutely no principles. A man who can use magic, can only use that magic that he can understand, if he believes his powers stem from the fact that if there was no magic the universe would fly apart at the hinges, then in his mind, magic therefore does so. It is a vast, never-ending (or even beginning) tidal-wave of energy strung together from the waste of the more upper-class and stable dimensional universes, good old board-n-bones universes were the inhabitants had discovered such wildly outrageous things as space-flight, or how to light a fire using quantum particles blasted through a highly complex array of accelerator funnels and lithium mirrors. Once every few hundred years there are people who don’t believe this and set out to prove the fundamental stability and logic of the universe, the lucky ones manage to escape in a shape with two legs, the unlucky ones are let go.

In a field about a mile from the village of Emerald Cliff, something was descending. It was a dot on the horizon moving so fast it left a smoke-trail. As it moved closer an odd set of noises could be faintly discerned as emanating from it, which alternated vibrantly from the lower to higher end of decorum. As it entered the last phase of re-entry into common reality, the noise took on a decidedly more colourful tack. There was a bang that shook the nearby trees and spread fountains of dirt half a mile away. For about five minutes there was silence, inquisitive creatures, overcoming their previous shock at the incoming missile began to creep towards the several metre deep impact creator. Then something screamed, it was a long drawn-out scream that turned weasels albino and sent deer into heart palpitations. A tall figure, clad in the pathetic vestiges of armour and covered in earth clawed its way up from the rim. It stood up, shaking its main of hair. Its skin was black; its eyes a wild blue blaze amid a face chiselled enough to have come from a stonemason.

“Is that all you’ve got you corny old ******” It bellowed at the sky. There was a moments pause, then a slab of something grey and metallic slammed into the earth a few metres away and stuck there. The figure strode over to the corroded old weapon and then kicked it savagely. It exploded into fragments.

“I didn’t need it anyway!” He snapped at the grey overcast cloudbank that was forming. There was another pause, then as he looked down again at the slivers of metal that had once been his sword a large amount of metal sheets dropped on his head. The air blurred from the concentrated heat of his swear-words as he fought his way out from under the load of rusty iron.

He stood up, looked around again, waited for a moment or two to make sure no further celestial packages were going to drop on him, then tried to throw a fireball at a pile of wood. There was sad little “pfft” noise from his fingers, and his eyebrows began to smoulder. A further minute-and-a-half of swearing ensued, the trees, already wilting gave up the fight and began shedding leaves. Finally, silence reigned. So did water, which as if on que began to fall from the sky. Jeran Korak, interstellar vagrant, swordsmaster and fatal sarcastic sighed resignedly, stood up, wrapped the last pathetic rags of his armour tighter around him and began to trudge through the increasingly torrential downpour towards the dim lights that he surmised was a village. Doubtless here he would find yet another quest, yet another set of fantastical magic items and be yet another pawn in a scheme of things no mere mortal could understand. How he hated them. At least there didn’t seem to be any raving demi-gods or pastry worshippers in his general vicinity, and the rain was cool.

You mean, if I put say a Shielding Knife in a quickslot while using a Bonding Knife I'd get 8+ to Defence (I think thats right) 1- to all primary statistics and 5+ to Endurance. Not sure I got all the item stats right, but you get the general idea.

I think its clear by now that everyone hates everyone else, so let me recommend something.

1: Your not gods, stop acting like them.

2: One players opinion should not influence the style of everyone elses. If the RP was going well with all these individual styles then there's no reason to change them.

3: Stop acting like childern throwing mud at each-other. This is a Forum not the celestial tribunal. Manners cost nothing and make you sound more mature.

4: If you cannot get anything together, then let the RP die with the dignity its linage deserves then move on with your pathetic little world-domination plans somewhere you won't harm the kittens.

5: Grow up

Jeran, who can say from experiance this kind of crap is the best way to break up a forum, and is disgusted by the immaturity currently being displayed by the so-called great writers. Therefore he will now crawl into a corner and ignore this thread, so don't bother flamming me, it just displays further your inhability to deal with the situation.

Collect canisters throughout the game to increase your own power and gain new spells? Prehaps even summon a few lesser automated creations to fight on your side?
