If people don't start posting, I will simply invade the surface and conquer the whole thing without you.

I'd like to see you try. ;)

Hey, c'mon. I follow through on my promises... several days later.

Yeah, I know. I fail, indeed.

Nikki, hopefully you don't mind what I've done with Brand.

I also didn't touch Laz's character. I'll leave that up to him.

Update to summary thread tomorrow-ish.

I wouldn't expect a reply tonight, Goldenking. Nikki works on either GMT or GMT +01:00. That means that it's currently sometime between 10:30 to 12:00 PM for him.

Dintiradan: No, that's fine.

Goldenking: I was at work from 2pm to 12am last night, and from 11:30 to 7pm tonight. So I've not checked my PMs. Sorry.

Nikki, as I told you via PM, it's either you or me. And seeing as how you're allying with the Sanctuary, I need to move know to destroy you. I'm hoping that my mass attack, along with the surprise factor, would be enough to get me victory in the War of Krizsanian Unification.

Meanwhile, I'll be doing all in my power to prevent Sanctuary and the Phoenix Empire from having further contact. Even if it means killing diplomats traveling through my territory. But if you can find a way, maybe around Bigail, then I'm more then willing to be forced onto a two front war. But until then, the Great Game against the Sanctuary will do.

Been hitting the quantum laxative a little hard? I have no problem about most of what transpired, but there is one thing I disagree with.

A month?!

That's pushing timetables a little too fast, don't you think? Unless you have any objections (and probably even if you do), I'm not making the month that passed in your IC canon just yet. Know that I'm not snubbing you, but I prefer time to pass at a fairly stable rate. Thus, my next IC will probably start shortly after the refugees arrived.

Also, I'm a little concerned about the amount of power you're gaining and bringing to bear here. A massive army of goblins? An alliance with a dragon? Assaulting five cities simultaneously? To be blunt, I'm a little skeptical of this.

A month. Sure, I went ahead of schedule a bit, but that's just a timetable of symptoms, death, and infection. In the time until the month comes, feel free to RP the Plague spreading around like the filthy Plague it is. You don't have to skip ahead a month by any means.

The Dragon and the Goblins are there as plot devices, for an eventual revolt that will occur, not for any combat purposes. The Dragon may end up doing something eventually, but the goblins are definitely just filler. They wouln't do me any fighting. As for attacking five cities, its with forces I've already detailed existing, and with the exception of the Imperial Navy were already nearby. In fact, the only ones I feel sure about are Delan, New Sumar, and Silvar.

I certainly don't expect to win all of the cities on the first try, but I do think I'll win a few. And from there I can expand into the Krizsan with reinforcments. Since it's not to difficult to defend my northern or eastern borders.

I think you're being unreasonable with the amount of military prowess.

Amadis told me about some plans, but I'm not sure how I'll incorporate his ideas into my next post.

Come on, people, no need to write a novel with each post. And you wonder why things have slowed down. :P

Interestingly, the people writing long posts are writing them more frequently than the short posters. I certainly don't intend to slow down, and I like my novels. It's all in the character development. My latest post was particularly entertaining, I think.

I have an excuse, though. I have a whole crap-load of stuff I need to attend. Besides, longer posts will hold people over longer than short snippets. :P

And you're one to talk Ephesos, considering you haven't posted since early page 2.

1. No they won't, they'll just scare away people who don't have enough time to read everyone's novellas.

2. I have a life. And I just posted. So there. :P

Goldenking: I guess one of the problems I have with it is that I can't do anything to affect their fate. I'd at least like the kit to make it.

Oh, and PM.

EDIT: I have a new gimmick for the Avernum RP. Watch the signature in my OoC posts for sneak peeks at my next IC.

Jake, Mrrphrrhrr the Third's son? Sure. He can develop a resistance to it, or something, and be the tool the clergy use to cure it. But he will be near death for a while.

Alright, my next IC should be up as soon as Goldenking gives it a once-through. I want to avoid what happened last time I posted an IC.

AMEND: My mistake. Nikki needs to make his move first, then I'll have the IC up. Oh, and Ephesos, you might want to brace yourself. It's 5-and-three-quarters page lengths long. Sorry, but I want character development too.

[Faenelle] then doubled over slightly. Iocabe got up and prepared to rush around the table, but Faenelle shook her head, straining to speak. "Don't... bother! It'll... pass... shortly..." A few moments later, her breathing evened out.

You know, one of the perks of a factional RP is that you don't need nine pages of backstory for every peripheral character. :P

Sara, it's cool... I was similarly inactive. Figured I'd wait to do anything with Sister Nimbus until you showed signs of life.

True, but having the leading characters have a personality and backstory makes for a far more interesting experience. Unless, of course, you're playing a collective-hivemind faction.

My bad. Life has got the better of me. Will try and up something today.

Well, there you go Nioca, your go.

Dintiradan: I'm not going to address you in this post, but feel free to run with Brand if you want. Basically, I just want to be your friend. :)

Ephesos, rejoice! It's half-a-page-length shorter than I originally thought! :P

I made a couple last-minute changes regarding the Phoenix Empire. Nothing extraordinary, it just addresses a few things I thought needed addressed. I also made the passage of time a bit more obvious in the Sharimik part of the post.

Fixed. Oh, and there's now also an angry peasant with a pitchfork. Because no RP is complete without an angry peasant with a pitchfork. :P

Excalibur, I sent you a PM you might be interested in.
