  1. No one slept well that night. Malin was allowed to bed down with the group, but under watch, and Findecano kept a close eye on him as he took a swig from his canteen. It tasted foul and odd, and he immediately drank from his cleansing flask he carried, which contained an herb that worked well as an antidote to most poisons. Had someone tried to poison him? He already felt sick to his stomach over how much had been lost, and the fact that among the dwindling group still remained a servant of evil who had killed many of those who started with them. Fade, Caddor, Eleryrn, all gone. Legolas… Mithrandir… How many more? At least one more, it turned out, when another disguise was revealed in the morning. The handmaiden of one of Findecano's aunts, forbidden from journeying herself but sent in the guise of the man Dorder, was struck down in the night. The Mordor daggers had to be running low, but they were still sharp. Findecano knew what he had to do, though he was loath to do it. The threat to the south would need to be faced, but now it must be himself and Morwe alone. No one else could die to his failure. When the others rose in the morning, the duo was gone. Malin, Itiah and Halve were not shown any mercy. —————————————————————————— Walin was killed! They were the Elven Handmaiden! The Game Is Over! Technically, the two sides are even in players, but with the Hand of Sauron still alive, the conclusion is inevitable. Full player list below: Player List: Docs: Evil Agents of Evil Spec Doc (The Barrow-Downs) I'll write up some thoughts, but a couple notes for now: First, yes, I trolled everyone. There were no Gondorian Spies. I honestly didn't ever intend to include them, though there had been thoughts at an early point in developing this game of having it be all three factions. Having the mere threat of a faction that didn't need to actual exist to alter the course of the game was both intriguing and amusing to me, so here we are. Second, I expected the poison to be a big part of the game, and while it didn't disappoint, I don't feel like it overwhelmed the mechanisms either. I didn't balance it, though, intentionally. Every player, regardless of alignment, had a coin flip. Each one got poison or didn't based on that, so I didn't know starting out how many vials of poison there would be or who would control them. Turned out that I didn't track it well, but right about half the playing field started with poison (go figure, RNG coin flipper, duh), but only 3 players died to poison, and only 1 was actually half poisoned, though @xinoehp512, you were about to discover the fun of not being able to speak except to respond. Sorry for the mixup with Snipexe, btw, but I don't think it ruined anything. I wish it had gone longer, though for my sake personally it's probably best it didn't, and thanks for all the great RP, ya'll! It was no @Amanuensis game in terms of RP, but it was fun! Thoughts?
  2. Night 8: Dreams of the Future Remart Ffnord’s dreams that night were dark things. He was running through a plain with a great wind at his back. The light was far ahead of him, and he was not alone in the darkness. There was someone beside him, but in the way of dreams, they switched who they were as they ran. He was being chased. A monster in the darkness far behind him, full of great teeth. The Darkness approached with it, blotting out the light even as he chased it. A rumbling eternal wave of blindness. So Remart continued to run, his legs moving slowly, as the ground seemed to flow from his footsteps much faster than possible. There were people and building up ahead, and suddenly he had reached them. He was among the great buildings, each the height of Kredik Shaw. They were broken things, dropped by a capricious child. Remart ran through them, but the Beast was gaining, so he was inside one of the buildings. He hid, watching through the window as the darkness swept through the town, erasing the buildings from existence. The Teeth were everywhere now. A grinning maw surrounding the town. Remart screamed in his dreams, but heard no sound as the teeth closed on him. Locke Tormander stepped from his coach, and grinned up the steps at the Tekiel Guardsmen. Lord Eru Tekiel stood at the head of the steps, looking down in disdain. “Lord Tormander.” “Lord Tekiel, I hope this morning finds you well.” It should. Tormander Allomancers had been killing the man’s rivals all last night and morning. “The shape of it pleases me currently, but I am unsure if letting a man like you into my house is the best course of action i can take.” Despite his words, he nodded to his captain, who called out for the men to part, allowing Locke to climb the steps. Two servants opened the great doors before them, and Locke followed Eru into the house. “I am surprised that my inclusion would not be considered an excellent choice my Lord. I would bring riches, allomancy, and knowledge into your house. The Tormander name is a respected one.” “It is a feared one.” Eru snapped back. “Lord Jack did well do distance himself from that reputation, but with his murder, in his own keep, I’m afraid you will have to work far harder to escape it then he did.” “I believe that marrying into the Tekiels, and letting the Tormander name die, would be helpful to that cause.” Locke smiled, though Eru wasn’t looking at him. Eru opened a door, revealing a small study with a darkened fireplace, some tapestries, and a large desk. He walked around the desk, picking up a pre poured glass of wine, and sat down. He indicated the chair and glass across from him, and asked. “So you intend to marry my eldest daughter?” Locke sat down, and picked up the glass. “Lady Tintallë is not your eldest child. She is lovely, and I know you were intending to marry her off in order to cement an alliance. Let me try to win her over, and if i can marry her, you will gain all the might of House Tormander. With Heatherlocke dead, and Ffnord in pieces, my wealth will put you among the Great houses of Luthadel.” Eru slowly stirred his wine as he thought. He leaned forward, one elbow on the desk. “Let us discuss terms then.” No one was lynched! This will be the final night of LG42, after this, the Heatherlocke and Ffnord winners will be determined via tiebreaker. If all 4 players have put in action orders in the first 24 hours of the cycle, i will end the turn early. Otherwise, the turn will end in
  3. QF27: Lord of the Lynches: Terror in Minas Tirith The year is 2756 in the Third Age. The land of Gondor lies dark and silent, menaced by an ever-growing shadow on its eastern frontier. Minas Ithil has fallen to the Enemy, and it will not be many years until Osgiliath suffers the same fate. But the plans of Sauron wait for no man. Even now, when the forces of Gondor are watching the expansion of Mordor, a few of Sauron's most cunning servants are ready to strike a blow at the heart of Gondor itself. Ground Rules: Known Roles: Clock will be posted later. Good luck, men of Gondor! (And Mordor, too, but it would be bad for my image to cheer on the homicidal maniacs. Player List: Quick Links:
  4. So, fun question to pose to everyone here- But for those of you either planning RPG's or fantasy novels of your own that're a little adventure oriented... what's the perfect film you like to watch for inspiration? If you're writing a real sword & sorcery adventure, do you go for Ahnuld's Conan the Barbarian? For a sweeping romantic fantasy, The Princess Bride? For epic fantasy, Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings? For something whimsical and unconventional, Coraline, Alice in Wonderland or Time Bandits? Ooh, or for dark flavoured fantasy Princess Mononoke? What's your major fantasy film influence?
  5. Vin and Elend are currently in the Final Four of a "March Madness" style cage match against Legolas and Gimli. If they win this match they will most likely go to the finals against Sevro and Darrow from the Red Rising trilogy. (Which should be an interesting match up, if you ask me.) However...they are currently losing by a minuscule amount, and today is the last day to vote! Everyone who is a fan of Brandon Sanderson, I believe that it is YOUR DUTY to defend Vin and Elend's honor! We all know that in a real fight Legolas and Gimli have nothing on our beloved duo. So please, get out and vote. It's your 17th Shard civic duty!!!! (PS - You can only vote once per device, so if you can: vote on your phone, your computer, and your tablet!)
