Okay, gonna post as much of this as I can so I don't forget, because this game was great Smile

Friday night:
-Overhearing the start of the safety walk, then walking over to Jaya and asking "Um... did Phineas just brag about the inn having a back door?"
-Got attacked by... something. Spiders, maybe? I just remember taking 8 points of damage, collapsing, then realizing that I still have 1HP left. I played dead for a little bit.
-Taking the newcomer Trixie to the Faerie circle so she knows somewhere she can hide, only to have Krond collapse with nausea
-Skeletons, because of course there are skeletons. What do I lose this time? A chunk of muscle from my arm
-Flora started medic'ing me and working on the arm, when a skeleton barges into the inn and walks over to us. It starts fiddling with the damaged muscle, and we waited for a moment (I think because there were no fighters nearby?) until it plucks another muscle off and starts eating it -_-
-Getting the muscle replaced by Flora, and then healing it back to normal. You don't know what you've got until you're missing a functioning limb.
-Passing through the inn and learning of the rather... in-depth work that was done to help Krond
-Stalking through the woods to avoid vampires, and finding Volk, Pierre, and someone else (Joy, I think?) carving stakes
-Opening the door of the inn, seeing Helen's character (vampire I'm fairly sure) glance at the door, and immediately slamming it shut again. Then running down into the field at the edge of the bunkhouse and hiding under my cloak. Apparently it blends in very well, even with the gold trim

Saturday daytime:
-Getting up and cooking breakfast. I really enjoyed the root vegetable mix; that was tasty!
-While I'm cooking, Talia walks in, bleeding from just about everywhere. What happened???
-The morning fight with the spiders. I think several people were still asleep, because "Has the entire town of Holdfast seriously been defeated by TWO SPIDERS???"
-Praying at the Faerie and Water circles. Was hoping to get to some others, but stuff gets busy
-Hearing about a big blunder with air mana  Shocked
-Had a little down-time, so we went searching for water tether points. Found three! With the last one right next to the main fire pit...
-...which Sylvie was trying to light at the time, so I stayed and helped for a bit (with the bonus of a little lighter fluid). Once we got that going, I enjoyed a tea reading; apparently Timmean has a long journey in his future!
-Seeing someone I didn't recognize run past, and then seeing someone else chasing them and just shrugging it off
-Talking to Sylvie and Hillary's Arluru at the fire pit. They were generally getting along, but it was still amusing watching a cat-girl and dog-girl circling the fire like they were hunting each other
-Talking to Ravira about her kittens, and how she got separated from them Sad Then praying at the Faerie circle about it
-While praying at the Faerie circle, overhearing Degren and Gurok yelling conversation at each other through the woods
-Seeing Pursephone a little while later, then rushing to get Ravira and urging her to come with me. The initial response (before I gave any context) was "I'm not a dog!"
-Seeing Ravira and Pursephone reunited cat
-Meeting Kristoph. I heard later that he was nobility, and shortly after that he helped out with washing dishes. I commented it was strange but nice to see such work done by "someone of your position." He asked what I was talking about and I didn't elaborate, but when I asked if he had any questions, he just smiled and joked that "I'm sure someone of my position can figure it out."
-Krond's surgery! That was amazing. I just wound up watching and mashing up charcoal for most of it.
-Walking into the inn and hearing that Pursephone was looking to start her first harem. Timmean has never left that inn so fast or in such a panic.
-Making a new map of the mana points at the Knights' Camp. Don't know what happened to that map after that, but it was helpful in getting started
-Our first tethering of mana points featured a miscant, two trees destroyed Godzilla-style, and a delay to change shoes. Good job to Auron and Degren!
-The second tethering went a little more smoothly, bringing us back into balance. I felt even more involved this time, since it was a water point and such. Good job to Asher and Bikbun!
-Celebrating with a FAERIE PAPAYA! It was awesome to bring that thing out and share it with the whole town sunny
-Talking with Bikbun, Val, and Kristoph on the porch about Timmean becoming an elf and such. And that's what led to the line, "Well, I'm just a special case all around."
-THAT TURTLE! Blast that thing! Actually... yes, we did blast it. Several times.
-Bikbun going crazy against the turtle and later jumping on top of it
-Our efforts to restore the circles leading to some super-powered magic stuff; turns out you can suck lots of power out of that turtle, even after its dead

Saturday night:
-Was getting kind of tired and started nodding off in the inn. Thought I was about done for the night, until... THEY showed up
-Several Gloin walk in, and Asher is with one of them. She's acting a bit weird, so I try an untaint... only to have Helen immediately re-subjugate her, and myself as well
-Showing the Gloin around to several different circles, then heading out next to the ruins and starting to build a... house? I was a bit too talkative at that moment
-The people of Holdfast have never been so productive as we were that night  Neutral  And the process of building was awesome, especially the musical bits
-The robotic Kristoph, and Asher complaining he was a Gloin suck-up Razz
-Getting untainted, and then trying to be sneaky and free other people. Though by then most people were already cured.
-Having a debate about how to deal with the Gloin in future, then hearing that people already burned down the "house"
-A bunch of us going to the Faerie circle to find Gurok, only to learn that she HAD NOT lost her temper
-Talking to Joy, trying to figure out why the Gloin had turned Talia into a halfling. Then realizing that halflings are great at lifeskills... making them excellent slave material silent
-Getting called racist for the halfling slave theory, and literally banging my head against the wall before declaring myself "The Great Slaver" and going to bed.

Sunday morning:
-Pranking the knights  Wink  Keep a tighter hold on your weapons, and your flag!
-A bunch of us praying at the Faerie circle, wondering what Faerie has to say about the Gloin
-Talking to a few travellers at the earth circle, and getting to impart a psychic vision about the rift and everything we've been through to deal with it
-Val's uncle returning to town, and him noticing the ears. Also, Kali
-Checking on the circles and finding them weak, but functional
-Another Earth/Air tether, this time with Auron and Asher. Good job, you two!
-Val noting that Timmean talks rather loud
-Meant to do the next tether myself, but Val and Kristoph wouldn't let me. Then Kristoph makes a moral lesson out of the whole thing
-Krond and Pierre securing the next water/fire tether, despite the difficult woods they had to trek through. One last time: good job!
-Sitting down to a town meeting in the field, and ending game on a cliffhanger -_-

Sunday after game:
-Several quotes that I won't repeat
-Getting told about something else that I won't repeat, but which made me very excited for future games
-A very long line of cars heading into Robins

Well, THAT was quite a mouthful. But it was also quite a game Very Happy

Post by Malva on Mon Aug 21, 2017 9:56 am

Friday:
As Taka:
-Phineas putting a big emphasis on the fact that the tavern has TWO doors
-Degren: "Don't let it her go to the faerie circle, she might make it sick."
Everyone else: "...what?"
-Becoming a bee AND HAVING TO TRY TO READ THAT WHOLE PARAGRAPH ON A HEADBAND IN THE DARK. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
-Tried to solo a hungry skeleton. Did not work.

Saturday:
As Malva:
-Being too tough for the paralysis spider Cool
-Learning what Degren did with Auron's mana and making him more.
-Being stealthy for literally no reason and listening in on really normal conversations. But like, it was cool cause they were like <2m away and didn't notice.
-Finding gather eggs by stopping to eat berries.
-The turtle draining all the mana from the circles, so I went into emergency mana-making mode and then started visiting all the circles alone in the pitch-black, praying into them, and then I ran into Jaya and she was just like "Oh they're already full"
-Trying to get other alchemists making mana, and everyone trying to pin down their levels with the scale from 1-5 thing. And meanwhile I'm just like "I taught Talia. I know she can do this." "Okay but on a scale from 1 to 5...?" "Solidly in the middle." "So like a 2? 3?" "The middle."
-Sitting Talia down to make mana and finding out, after she's started, that she's not aware.
-I made like 40 mana this game
-The Glo'in/Glowing/???
-Trying to sneak down to the fire circle for I forget why & I hear a commotion so I hide and when it stops I come out and there's just a pile of bleeding unconscious bodies. I knew Degren could heal people so I dug the health potion I gave him earlier out of his bag and healed him and he got up and healed everyone else. Everything seemed all well and good, but then they started yelling about their "master", and I just noped out of there.
-Hiding in the woods with Lady Keket
-Timmean's comment about halfling slaves
-Jaya "was there"
As Taka:
-Waking up for a short period of time to accomplish all that I had meant to Cool

Sunday:
As Malva:
-Ideas for a thief-proof tip jar
-Much trading with Cal
-Buying a whistle from Lady Innogen, who was just trying to make an honest living

Posting quick because work, forgive my spelling and grammatical errors!

Friday
-The drive to site is always a good time. Trying to find songs we can all sing along to on a CD of 100 songs was a challenge, but we did it!
-Thank you to everyone who offered me pants when I forgot mine! Big shout out to Jenn for coming through and giving me a pair!
-Finallllly getting to tell everyone and show them the trophy and plaque! I've been planning to have these made since last September and I'm so stoked they finally exist! I was so happy with the reaction they got! The tournament is going to be EPIC!
-Before game brooding. Didn't get to do it last game and I severely missed it.
-Starting game drunk in the tavern because Bishop left without saying anything. Drunk Asher is fun to play, rivaled only by Baby Asher.
-The vampires! Oh the vampires were so fun and spooky! I need to silver ALL my weapons!
-Robs vampire: Stop. Fighting. US. (or something to that effect)
Asher: NO!
- Making butter chicken at like. 2am for everyone on the knights meal plan. It was so cold out and it was awesome to eat something hot before bed. I'm glad you all liked it!
-Actually stayin IC all of Friday night. Was proud of myself.

Saturday
-Coming into town as Sylvie and reading tea leaves!
-Thank you Travis for helping me start a fire on a damp firepit! You the real MVP
-Coming back to town as Asher and tethering a point with Bikbun! Surprisingly enough, being held back by giant invisible elastic bands is really fun to roleplay!
-Traditional nap at the knights camp. The second I laid down I hear people running around and panicking. I heard Timmean yell "WE NEED ARCHERS"...but I was too cozy to go do anything about it.
-Didn't nap too much though. James, Jess and I ate potato chips and meme'd. Sorry George and Mike, we ruined nap time.
-Saturday night mod...what can I even say about it? It was so freakin weird but so much fun. I sat there for a solid 20 minutes hammering my own shoe with a branch. I had a ton of fun just building a house for an hour with all of you. I don't even know what to say, 10/10 mod would play again. We are of Gloine!
-"I feel sufficient." - Bikbun. Quote of the game, imo.
-Props to Hope for untainting everyone!

Sunday
-Talking to Joy about getting a dress made...
-Boy oh boy, September game sure is gonna be busy...
-Tethering another point with Auron. Asking Timmean if he minds if I do it since its probably the only one Auron and I will get to tether together
-#Romance
-Learning water spells from Hasan with Datura
-Having a reallllly good nap on the step

Great game guys! As always, big thank you to the AD and Cast for all the hard work and long hours! I just love you all so much and I'm REALLY looking forward to the season finale!

Before game, during log: "Um, Rob?" "Just a second" a minute later "Sorry Rob it's just-" "Hang on." A minute later, Rob still obviously busy doing somthing *Taps on Rob's shoulder* "Sigh..Yes Jean??" "Rob, there is a live fish in the outhouse." "Sorry, What??!"
In game:
Derp skeleton lol
Having lord earth talk to me personally and guide me to the last two earth points (me being unaware, not psychic and not a tracker, while the psychic, tracker and mage looked on) It was truly a magical and eye opening experience for Gurok.
Over hearing people trash talk me on their way up to the faerie circle where I had come to meditate, then the validation I got from lady Innogen and some others afterwords.
Getting robbed by captain Tiberius
The Gloin drum circle, humming done, and Kristoff-mocking
After game, riding home with Rebekah and Wil:
"Pour some sugar on me' comes on the radio. Wil pictures all the elves doing a slow motion sexy catwalk across the field, but all I can think of is watching Timmean being verbally tortured in the field with sugars dirty talk voice.

Re: August 2017 event memories.

Post by AD on Tue Sep 05, 2017 11:54 am

Let's see....
I was present for a lot and witnessed almost none of it but here goes anyways.

Being the water plant and as I come into the water OOG to prep for the mod, I see Hope catching minnows before going for a swim. I ask if she's IG to which she happily responds with a Yes before everything clicking and her face falls in the sudden realiazation of what is about to happen. Mad Props to her for staying in the water. I come into game, start toward her and she screams, runs, gets her sword and tries to fight me in her bathing suit. I was suitably impressed. Happens a second time, after I was killed, and I hear a small, "I just want to swim". Again, props to her for not meta gaming and then trying to feed me a minnow she caught. I was genuinely pleased. I have amazing players.
-the second plant monster gets roasted because such is the way of all of Holdfast. Need to kill a thing we don't understand the biological make up? Burn it.

Being killing blowed as a skelly to the dirty sounding, "Beating it 1, Beating it 2...etc" If you don't get it, I'll explain it to you when you get older. ;p I couldn't see the actual beating but I could hear it in Wil's voice. I could feel the muscle's being used as he beat it all over the skeleton. Dirty Jokes aside, I have amazing players.

Watching all of Krond's surgery. Krond's gut issues lasted two months, July and August. Tony being amazing all throughout. When I'm expecting a double over, or weak at the knees, he just topples. It got to the point that when I walked toward Tony, he would just whimper. As I'm watching Flora deal with it finally, I wonder and worry if it's been too much. Looking down at Tony, he makes eye contact part way through the main surgery and gives me a wink. And there, I knew I had done a good. It was awesome. I have amazing players.

When I was the plant and was sent to be burnt, I look at the pile of wood they prepared to be a roaring fire and ask "Do you feel that will actually catch and burn?" I got a saddened "No" and then they rebuilt it without question. I have amazing players.

Overseeing the tethering and watching the planning and precision that went into it. Watching those tethered do a Damn Good Job at the rp. I have amazing players.

Getting to see snippets of Mel's rp and hearing the aftermath of both Drunk Darcy and Mothering Ravira. I have amazing players.

Seeing and hearing the town come together about things while still maintaining their own views, like real people do. Say it with me, I have amazing players.

Couple of weeks after game I hear that some people miss Sugar. I have questionably sane players.

Thanks so much for a great August Game!

Oh, and how could I forget? Being the only one to witness Degren put down a bag full of Aurun's mana. As I watch I think, "No, it can't be the mana, he JUST commented on it. No." Lean forward to feel for mana, he sees me do this, realiazes what's going on and asks, "When did this happen?" "RIght now." "By who?" "You." "oh." Aurun sees this, pieces everything together and just leaves before he instigates bloodshed over his lost 25 mana. Many of them gifted by Lord Air himself. I have amazingly ...interesting...players.
