Azuma, what point of the timeline should I pigeonhole your character into? It seems your character is a bit in the future; could we make it so he appears to the town (or the ruins, whichever makes a better choice at the time) during day four or five? Maybe you could run into Randomizer's character first?

As the creator says, it shall be. My character will go to Emerald Cliff since his command was to help there. But Randomizer's character will go to Salintu. It can be so that we meet up at Emerald Cliff, well, if Randomizer complies.

I suppose I could wander into Emerald Cliffs. I won't like it. Too small for an inn, probably no booze, and they think you're suppose to drink water. :(

Then there are you guys to deal with in the place.

I mentioned a tavern in my last post. It got destroyed in the storm, of course, but it existed before then. :P

The second gathering is now occuring (according to the rather fluid time flow of any RP) and Dikiyoba wants to make another post fairly soon, so post now (according to the rather fluid time flow of any RP) if your character is attending.

What meeting? I'm already way ahead. Just how many miles is it between Emerald and the lost city?

There's a timeline at the bottom of the first post. The newest event is the meeting actually starting in the evening/night of day 2, and many characters are either there or very close to there.

Dikiyoba.

Jeran, you're missing the point of the RP. You can't just burn rubber across the desert, it's a major undertaking. It's a freakin' desert. So if your character is going it alone, it's more or less a death sentence.

And the point of having a bunch of villagers who have in all likelyhood never even seen a stretch of sand on this trip would be...?

Those villagers happen to live in an oasis (admittedly a big one, but still), with the desert surrounding them. That's the reason why they are so isolated. Those villagers are familiar with the surrounding environment, up to and including the ruins, and know very well what resources they need to undertake the trip.

The original idea of this roleplay was to create the typical adventure, but without adventurers, so that the villagers themselves would need to take care of their problems. Because of this, I hoped that more characters would be actual villagers, but decided not to mind about it so we could get the RP rolling. Ephesos, however, is still right: your character has paltry chances of surviving alone. Yes, he is a seasoned adventurer and a multiple-time hero, but he also just fell from the sky and has little ways of knowing where he actually is what the heck he is supposed to do.

For the record, on foot the ruins are a two or three day trip east from Emerald Cliff, and that's with optimal travel speed and not taking into account the hazards of the terrain. There are no further oasises and very little food in between.

EDIT: Curse me for a fool, I forgot the most important thing! The reason why I want your characters to be normal people instead of hard-boiled demonslayers? It's more dramatic that way! To the villagers, the supernatural is something new and horrifying, something they haven't experienced before and something they're not sure how to cope with now. To them, lifting the curse is a struggle, not something they could do in any Monday morning with a hangover. Save parody and epic deeds for other roleplays, I want to see terror and brooding desperation!

That's why my character is struck unconscious twice in several days, he barely knows what he's doing! :P

Is the town meeting over? I want to talk to the chiefy. :P

And Frozen Feet, sometimes it's good to check your profile, maybe just to update it or in case someone sends you a question.

Not yet. Dikiyoba was kind of expecting ET to post, but if he doesn't, Dikiyoba will make another post sometime tonight.

Fixed both my posts so that it shows a reasonable reason on how my character reached Emerald Cliff in unhuman speed.

Just for notes, I'll be camping during the week-end. I expect to see a healthy pile of new posts when I come back during Monday.

Sorry about the delay, but I've posted. Feel free to invent a clockwork-y junk item from Demarkus's collection, if it suits your needs. Otherwise, I'll just think up a list myself.

Are Demarkus, Al, and Michael the only people in the 'main' party?

EDIT: Jeran, have you been watching Dr. Who or something?

Just a question Ephesos. Who's the inexplicably sighing man you're talked about in your IC post?

I'm quite confident he's referring to your character.

EDIT: The old woman is meant to be on of the village's healers. She was probably one to treat Alicia as well. Al, Michael and Demarkus will likely get a word about the morning's events before they leave.

EDIT2: Hoi! I just noticed I now have a permission to eliminate Talbot if it suits my whim. Maybe in the next message...

It can't be Davion because he's still inside the meeting hall sleeping, well, unless the villagers threw him out.

I just meant to emphasize that your character's just a little apathetic about things that aren't drinking and wenching, Azuma. Which is pretty much everything in this RP. :P

Dikyoba would like Michael to find something useful in all that junk, but Dikiyoba is not sure what at this point. Do you have a proposed list, Ephesos? Maybe it'll give Dikiyoba an idea.

I'd be slightly amazed if FF is even reading this anymore, considering the incredible number of posts in the IC thread recently. The mind boggles.
