Nioca, before you make your next post, I'd like to continue the interrogation a little longer.

And Cally, mind if I take control of your characters briefly? I want to ask them if they're Guildsmen, they refuse, I torture them briefly before the kitty breaks out and admits they are. Then Nioca can make his move.

Agreed, but don't call me Cally.

You have secured your place in the annals of Spiderweb lore as. . ."Cally".

:P

I feel I've waited long enough. I'll have an IC up tomorrow, regardless of an interrogation. (though I won't rush the interrogation thing)

That's lame. :(

I'm loving the pictures ET.

Nioca: Fine. I wanted to get some quality, though ultimately unneccesary, torture in, but if you want to move along, go ahead. I can do it by guess work, I'm sure Amadis will ring a few bells with someone, plus the Skribbane selling is basically monopolized by the Thieves' Guild.

ET: I agree. The pictures are brilliant. I'm tempted to incorporate something like that into my posts, but: That's plagairism, and I don't have enough skill. At least I have my footnotes*. My only critique is that the last picture had gray movement marks, which I originally misconstrued as a massive blade.

Avernum: I want to submit a few queries on geography:
1. A5's Northern Frontier, is it canon for this RP? If so, I doubt it's frontier anymore, and it'd be perfect for a faction.
2. The Unsettled Lands are extremely near the Great Cave, and have at various points been inhabited. Would they really still be unsettled? Same goes for the Northwestern Tunnels and the Honeycomb.
3. Would Upper Avernum have expanded throughout that whole mountain range, perhaps even taking the Unicorn Caves and the Cult Lands?
4. Would Vahnatai Lands have been settled as well? Like Avernites starting to settle the Black Waters, and other Vahntatai Lands, forcing the Vahnatai down lower.

*One of my posts took unneccesarily long due to a footnote on Hunter currency that took a lot of research.

4. I doubt it, they're far too remote to be practical, especially when the Vahnatai would disapprove of humans encroaching upon their territory.

Posted. Goldenking, I left it up to you just how much the interrogator got out of Ferrrald before having his head turned into a battering ram.

That said, I also express condolences for your loss, Nikki. *points at Goldenking* He did it, not me. :P (you're also getting Sarrin back for now)

That said, I did not intend for this IC to clock in at 5.75 pages. I apologize, and swear that it wasn't that long when I wrote it.

Nioca: No. Your Embassy was not held in a "hostage situation", it was merely seperated from the rest of Sharimik. It's on the outskirts, so you should be able to come and go as you please. As for Sister Beumont, why would I kill her? I let the Thieves Guild messenger go, and I'm trying to maintain a positive image with the Sister. More then likely I would have protected her on her journey. At least tell me you got Nikki's permission to take control of, and kill one of, the main characters. You know, the ones that are marked under "Main Characters".

Your post made me angry, and so I apologize in advance for any brashness.

EDIT: Now that I've cooled down, I suppose that your anger at the Sharimik walls is okay. I'm not sure how you would have found Sarrin, and I know you at least need Nikki's permission to kill of the Sister, and some good reason why she would die. Of course, don't blame me if I stop you from getting your messenger to the Empire.

My mistake. I misinterpreted the following quote:
quote:
Walls. Barriers of wood or stone meant to keep someone or something in or out. This definition was fulfilled to the fullest in Sharimik.

First, the walls had been hastily, but expertly, built on the perimeter of the city. Conveniently boxing in the Sanctuary embassy, all though a gate was given to let them come and go. [...] Preventing the Hunters, or the Non-Humans from fleeing from Hunter territory to Sanctuary held territory.
I hope you can see where the confusion resulted, and I'll fix my post accordingly.

quote:

From your perspective or an semi-omniscient perspective like the one held by the players, that's entirely reasonable. But take a look at it from Iocabe's perspective. He sees a looming threat and an unannounced enemy. So, naturally, if something important about Sanctuary mysteriously goes wrong due to human intervention on Sanctuary's southwestern front, the first conclusion Sanctuary is going to jump to is going to be the Hunters. And unfortunately, that's fairly typical politics.

That said, no evidence or proof was brought forward that it was the Hunters, merely Iocabe's hasty (though understandable) assumption. So it could easily have been a brigand attack that the Hunters were completely oblivious to.

quote:

...Nikki marked Clarice off as a main character?

*checks summary*

Crap. I need to check that more (though unless Nikki has a complaint about it, I'm not changing it)

quote:

If this is about the 'War with the Hunters isn't if but when' quote, you really need to look at past relations between the two. Conflicting ideals, territorial tension, simple disdain towards each other... The whole situation is a pile of tinder waiting for a match. That doesn't mean Sanctuary's going to start it right this second either, or even in the near forseeable future. But the two will have it out eventually, simply because they're a complete mis-match for each other.

AMMEND: First, fixed the wall thing.

Second:
quote:
I'm not sure how you would have found Sarrin
My previous IC addressed this. She was the imperial soldier that was attacked by brigands that Sanctuary rescued.

Yes, I can see where the confusion came from. Which is why the bit on the gateway was in their. Totally understandable.

Yes, I can understand that for all intents and purposes, the Hunters would be the most likely perpetrator. Right now, its more that she's dead. So yeah, Nikki needs to do some resolving.

Yes, I know we're at odds with each other, and I've been planning for the possibility of war. It just seems like you keep trying to push the war prematurely.

And if you think the Hunters will fall easily, you're sadly mistaken. Maybe I should start doing some espionage on you.

I'm pushing the tension between the two.

I don't think the Hunters will fall easily. As for espionage, I'm actually a little surprised you didn't start earlier, really.

Heh. Clarice was only useful in that it'd have meant Nioca would know I'd be sending troops if he wanted them. She's only major in so much as she's been given a name. :P

Sarrin... Ummm. Yay? I did have a purpose for her later on (much later on), but whatever. It'll be nice to have a family get-together.

I will do my darndest to get an IC out today, too.

Hey, what about New Sumar? I tried to get a cow to tip over a lamp there, remember? Just reread my last post and edit it in, if you'd be so kind.
