We can take this one over if someone makes a NEW HORSE for the others
And if Miles is here, I'll give him a spot too, even if that means we go to six players. His art really breathes life into this.
We'll kill it as we play.
I have some stuff to post, and if we want to hurry it along, everyone who is playing can post art related to their character

FIVE SLOTS AVAILABLE + Miles if he wants in
-Cutie Mark / Unique Skill + spells if mage
-Any noteworthy items you have with you
Then put your NAME and CLASS in the name field and get ready.

Once I have everyone listed, we begin.

A state of emergency is being declared all over Equestria and the neighboring lands. It is the time of the Dragon Migrations, an event that only happens once every few decades. A perilous time even at the best of times, with hundreds of dragons of all ages roam the land in search of mating grounds. The death toll is often in the dozens even during peaceful migrations, but this time, things are different.

A hapless group of adventurers, seeking fortune, fame and divine guidance, happened upon a shrine dedicated to a long-forgotten ancient dragon, Old Ironhide.
These adventurers destroyed the shrine, not knowing their actions would lead to a chain of events that would reshape the entire world.
The destruction of the shrine lead to the return of Old Ironhide. Thought dead, he seemed to have simply been imprisoned instead. However, dragon history is a subject ponykind knows very little about. As such, academics, historians and other ponies of suited skills have rushed to find clues to the history of Ironhide, what his crimes were, and how to stop him.
Meanwhile the dread dragon is disrupting the dragon migrations, causing widespread chaos and havoc.

Many heroes seek to protect Equestria from this beast, and your party is among them. You must find out more about your foe, discover his weakness, gather allies to face him, and somehow put an end to his reign of terror.

You have gathered in Canterlot City. You have permission to use what they can offer.

What do you do first?

You got
-Pouches (empty)
-The royal knight's uplifting field guide
-Knightly snacks
You brought alone
-A skull to chat with
-Your potion making ingredients
-A handy dandy needle and thread
You brought
-A spyglass
-A compact pillow
-Some nets with leaves on them, perfect for camouflage
-A quick checklist of things to smite
-Holy water from the fountain of Celestia
-A big book of things that are evil
-A sun pendant
-Food, water, and some torches

After bickering for a while over who should be in charge, the party settles on the knight Max, who begrudgingly agrees.
They head on to the Canterlot Royal Archives to question the scholars there. Once they reach the archives, a guard blocks their path.
He seems young and inexperienced, but big and burly. He says nobody is supposed to disturb the scholars and tells you to piss off.

What do you do?

He looks you straight in the eye, then tells you one should never trust a Zigger. They all look the same to him anyway.
He turns out to be gay
Being from a tough family, he is used to being yelled at. Also he's met Princess Luna once. You fail to scare him.
After the others fail, Max steps up and tells the guard off. Who does he think he is, blocking the path of sanctioned adventurers in a time of such dire need? A greenhorn rookie who cannot think for himself, that's what. Were you his dad, you'd be most disappointed.
The young guard is visibly hurt and agrees that you make a good point. He lets the party in.
He then notes that the goat should not play his music indoors, as it is annoying as hell.

You enter the archives. A note on the wall reads
>Emergency meeting in fifth floor grand hall. All Dragon Scholars should attend
Next to the note is a list of the floors
1 - Entrance, Common Lore, History
2 - Magic (Arcane)
3 - Magic (Natural)
4 - Starswirls the Bearded (dedicated wing)
5 - Reading hall
Basement - Archives

Where do you head?

You read up on a lot of interesting factoids about the life of Starswirls, like what he liked to eat, and his short-lived relationship with his hairdresser Vainglorious. However you find nothing helpful.
Your search pays off. Working together, both of you manage to learn a little something.
Zebro now learn [FIX DEAD LIMBS] and can let someone use a limb that is broken, chopped off, rotten or otherwise not all there.
Trusty now knows [NATURAL CALL] and can mask his presence by pretending to be an animal
Goat's search turns up good results. Old Ironhide was last seen over 400 years ago. He is a larger than usual male dragon, inexplicably clad in heavy iron armour seemingly bolted to his scales. His origins are unknown, but he is strong enough to fight several mature dragons alone.
The Basement Archive findings corroborate Goat's findings. They also reveal that Ironhide was seen as a criminal among dragons, and when they failed to kill him, they instead imprisoned him using magical wards of pony origin.

Look for more info?
Join Radiant?
They use lots of fancy words, none of which are "Celestia" "Smite" "Heretics" or "Sun". You fall asleep.

Trusty heads out of the archives and looks for the Canterlot Armoury. It takes him a while to get there, and there are guards at the door.
Sneak past?
Talk to them?
You head up to the fifth floor, arriving just in time to see a shadow on the upper rafters aiming a bow at one of the scholars
Dawn refuses to use the stairs like a commoner, instead opting to sneak up using the outside wall.
She arrives later than the others, and tired.
You wake up in the commotion, but fail to see the shadow until the others point it out.

What do you do?

It makes some of the guys really uncomfortable because they are not sure if liking you counts as gay or not.

You are about as sneaky as CWC is agile. The guards watch your attempts for a while with amusement, then ask you to leave, as the Armoury is for guard members only.
You jump into a shadow and crouch flat. You are hidden from peripheral vision, but easy to see if looked at.
You are too groggy from your nap to focus properly. The aura bubble pops like a soap bubble.
They look at you with disappointment, give a sharp "SHH" and continue talking.

The guards look at eachother, exchange a few words, then agree to let you in.
You can pick out two types of arrows, then pick what you do next.
You stumble over your legs in panic and fall on your face. You hurt yourself and look really stupid to everyone. There is an arrow headed for your neck
BUT IT IS STOPPED BY THE MIGHTY PLATED FLANK OF MAX AS HE LEAPS IN TO SAVE HIS COMRADE. The arrow shatters and the split head falls on the floor with a mocking "plink". It didn't even dent your armour. The shadow seems shocked.
With his attention drawn to the arrow scene, the shadow fails to expect a thread from the sleepy paladin. Like the voice of the Dragonborn, your shout knocks him off balance and sends him crashing onto the table.
Nobody really pays any mind to you, until the shadow falls right in front of you. He seems to have broken his legs. Lots of dust and paper is flying around
And this guy just stands there.

Check out who the shadow was?
Make sure there are no others around?
Calm the scholars down first?
Bar the doors?

Max and you get full plate.

Playing Yakety Sax seems to have been a bad plan. Nobody really calms down.
Your efforts slowly start getting results, but chaos still reigns.
You lay down the hardest insult anyone has ever heard. His mama is so fat, his sister is not worth your camels, he mad, his art is on par with Ross, his waifu is a cartoon, the works. He is told super hard.
Radiant then proceeds to crush his remaining limbs and hogtie him. He was carrying several poisons, A dagger with a dragon motif and what seems to be a firebomb.
He was wearing an iron helmet shaped like a dragon skull.
With four broken limbs and still in shock from the no holds barred insult barrage, the would be assassin does not say anything coherent.
Trusty makes good time back to the library, and arrives just as the scene is ending.

A shadow leaps over him and hurries down the stairs!

Zebro and Dawn go to work on the assassin. After a little game of good cop / insulting black cop, he spills the beans.
He knows Old Ironhide is back, and he knows what went down the last time this happened. Everypone is going to die horribly, and the least he can do is try to get on Ironhide's good side. In short, they are a death cult.
Spurred by the MIGHTY WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT, Trusty shatters the fleeing cultist's dreams of ever becoming an adventurer. As he falls on the floor with a meaty thud, his firebomb comes loose and rolls away. He desperately crawls after it, trailing blood.
Goat and max dash after him, but both are quite far away.

It does not go over all that well.
You learn nothing new. However the scholars seem to be whispering among one another about what they have seen and heard.
You three stop the assassin from reaching his bomb. Defeated, he asks for you to kill him. He has failed his mission and everyone will soon burn anyway as Ironhide comes to end them.
They only answer in riddles.

Nopone is quite sure how you managed to scare a death cultist, but it worked. Combined with the efforts of >>1867788
you learn that the Ironhide Cult recruits mostly suicidal pones, and shares with them their knowledge regarding the legend of Ironhide
At the same time this pair goes to get some serious answers out of the scholars.

The whole truth is, there are only so many who know of Ironhide, and this was done on purpose. The story of his last appearance was so devastating that it sapped the will to live from most who heard it. Only one copy of the original records exists, but it seems someone had copied it again in secret and is now spreading the news. The meeting was never supposed to discuss what to do about the dragon, it was about how to contain the info leak before everypone takes to looting and panic.
They agree to give you access to the original records in the basement vault, and information regarding nearby dragon groups, as well as a few key trinkets and other things that might help gain the trust of the dragons.

Go to the basement vault?
Take their stuff but ignore the old book?
Go straight to Celestia about this?

Go alone?
Join the others and try to convince them to go with you?
The basement vault is hidden away at the back of the archives. There are no visible guards, but you can tell there are many safeguards in place. Magical shields, tripwire alarms, the works.
The air in the vault is still and thin. Hundreds of books lie there, each locked in a separate glass case. There is no wood or cloth to be seen, only stone and glass. The only source of light is a magical flameless lantern.
The book you are pointed to is thick and ragged. Seemingly written by dozens of authors one after the other, you can see evidence of tear stains, the writing growing weaker and messier over the pages until it is replaced by another style altogether.
Many numbers catch your eye.
Thousands of casualties in Equestria alone, including ponies, pegasi, and even zebras.
An ursa major and three ursa minors found dead.
One hundred and four dragons slain.
This is the price of Ironhide's passing.

At the end, you find a map marking several locations in the mountains and woods. Lines go from point to point, drawing a symbol. This is the seal used to weaken and imprison Ironhide. It was made by some of the most notable minds and mages of the past, and was designed to weaken a dragon without doing much else.
Perhaps one of the princesses, having lived in the time, would know more.

Go seek them out?
Spend more time here looking for clues?

The guards listen to your story. They seem highly skeptical of Dawn, as she could just as easily be a cultist as an adventurer, with those clothes, moves and dagger.
However Radiant's arguments, as well as Trusty's incredible intense look help convince them you are indeed on the level. The goat seems to be pretty cool too. They allow you to enter, and dispatch some guards to mop up the library.

You stand before the grossly incandescent sun princess. She radiates warmly as her hair flows in the unfelt winds of magic.
There are several advisers, scholars and soldiers gathered in the throne room as well. They are discussing the situation. A large map on the central table shows the predicted path of Ironhide. It will either cross right over Canterlot Castle, or sweep past very closeby. In either case, everyone in the city, including the princess, is in danger.

Nope. Spaghetti everywhere.
You manage talk to Celestia and make sense as you do so. She gives you a smile.
You now have access to [LAST STAND] and can choose not to die even in the face of impossible odds, as you allow the memory of this moment sustain you.
Celestia seems amused. You improved her mood notably.
Despite some initial difficulty in finding the right words to explain the plan (Max naming it "Operation: Dragon Dildo Hoedown" didn't help) most of the advisers agree that this cult needs to be located and their tools used to fight Ironhide.
Some of the scholars butt in and say that an alliance with the other dragons would be a better plan.
Celestia herself remains silent.

The party has decided to seek out the death cult HQ.
One of the military advisers steps up and informs the party that they captured one of the cultists alive earlier. Several others burst into flames when capture was attempted.
The one they did catch revealed that the cult leader was a former scholar on Dragon History, and that the initiations are held outside the castle, in a hidden cave said to have once been a dragon lair.
Supposedly one needs a special key of some kind to prove their membership and enter.

Party has received

You see some tracks just outside the royal quarters. They seem heavier than usual, as if someone was carrying a notable load and dragging their hooves about it. At any other time you would attribute this to laziness, but at a time of panic and chaos, this seems unlikely.
They lead to a park, meet another set of tracks, and separate. One set goes to a back alley, the other out of town.
You remember seeing a map earlier. It had some landmarks on it, one of which was a cave near the base of the mountain Canterlot is built on.
A plan B is presented - see if you can join the cult and work your ways from the inside out.
Take this route instead?

I'll remember to be meaner next time.
>> Goaty McGoaterson [Baaaaard] 05/11/12(Fri)16:55 No.1869112
He was specced as a "fighting druid". That was his argument, anyway.
We stopped playing soon after.

I want to have three of us follow each set of tracks, unless we decide on the "plan B join the cult" option. I'd love to try plan B if you guys are up for it.

srsly DM what does that music book do?

Dawn puts on the Dragon Cult Disguise as the party cautiously approaches the alley. You see a large pony clad in clothes similar to the dragon cult ones. He is carrying a huge bag which seems to be full of something relatively soft. He is having trouble with it.
As he sees Dawn he calls for her to help him carry it back to the pit. He says it needs to be there before the new initiates arrive.

It seems you got a lucky break. What do?

Your arrow hits the bag, which rather worrying begins leaking blood.
The cultist has no time to pay attention to Dawn's less than perfect act as these three rush out, bump into eachother and slam into the adjacent wall. He panics and flees with Dawn in tow.
The trail of blood from the bag does give you a handy line to follow.
You then dust off, bandage up and limp after them.

You arrive at a large pit just in time to see the cultist empty the bag into it. Inside are the bodies of two ponies and a small dragon. Once they are dumped into the pit he turns to Dawn and asks if she has everything set for tonight's initiations.

What do?

Are you absolutely sure about this?

Just remember: >Twice to dawn and once to dusk, knock three times and speak the name of death to enter. Please don't drop it this time. I don't have any more spares. Make sure I'm not followed. I'll see you tonight at the temple.

Dawn turns to ask the cultist a question but before she can get a reply, Trusty's arrow pierces his neck and he falls over dead.
Dawn instead shares her info about the cult with the others and they inspect the pit. It is very very deep, it might even lead to the caves at the bottom of the mountain. However the drop is surely fatal.

The cultist has a list of names. You are not sure if these are names of other cultists, potential new recruits, assassination targets, or what.
You can probably find this out by taking it to the Guard Captain, but doing so will cost you time.
You now have three firebombs.
Dawn flies down for a while. The pit indeed goes all the way down. The sides are slick with gore and remains of garbage. It looks like this was a trash pit until the cultists started using it too.

At the bottom of a pit you find a pile of dead bodies. A high one. Some have obviously been dropped from above, others piled down at the bottom. You can make out ponies, griffons and even dragons among the remains. Many have notable burns on them. You figure these must be victims of Old Ironhide.
There are several ponies coming towards the pile from other parts of the cave.
Blend in? Return up top?

You are not quite as good at urban tracking as you thought, and it takes you a while to get to the captain. He is having his men check the list, but for now you are stuck far away from the party.

The rest of you mill around with no particular goal in mind. As you do so, you figure out the fastest route to the cave you assume is connected to the pit.

You spot a pony with some fancier gear on him marking down notes as the others bring in more dead. He is muttering names and numbers, seemingly counting the dead. This must be the temple for the initiations.
You are now stuck down here.
Try to find out more about the initiations?
Find someone important to stalk/kill?
Indeed they do. They also identified the list as a list of ponies reported dead or missing in areas Old Ironhide has attacked.
You reunite with Trusty, and having heard his news, leave for the cave entrance. Luckily you also have the iron pendant with you, as the cultist referred to it as a key of sorts. It should be handy.
As you exit the city, you overhear some guards talking. Old Ironhide will reach Canterlot in just a few days time.

The guy counting names seems to be just a promoted peon, as you see others like him near other piles.
As you head deeper in, you figure they must somehow be bringing in dead from all over equestria. You also see a group of helmetless ponies who look worried and uncertain. Possibly new recruits. You also spot a scarred, bearded pony in the distance. He might be the leader.
Talk with initiates?
Go after possible leader?
Radiant, spurred by the memories of the sun's smile upon her manages to get herself and the goat to the cave around as fast as it takes
the others to get there through the forest, despite the road being longer.
You stand at a large door blocking the cave. There is a slot in it, and you can rotate said slot. There is also a knocker.

Being a pretty mare has its advantaged even in a death cult. He tells you the new initiates are almost ready to hear the truth. He intends to read out loud the tale of Old Ironhide for all to hear, and as proof that the world is ending show them all the dead left in the wake of that dragon.
Knowing what it took from Celestia and the united dragon clans all those centuries ago will prove to them that such a feat could never be repeated, even if someone recovered the old spell used to bind him. Which they won't since, he tore it from the archive copy and kept it for himself.

He goes on explaining about life and the inevitability of death, making references to natural disasters and wars of the past.
You can see some prized trophies he has gathered around his room. Bone talismans, dragon scale armour, and the spellbook page, inside a glass case.
The cultist leader idly pokes some pillows near an ascetic bed he has on the floor, looking at you.
He wonders where your robes are, but lets you in anyway.
Then you snap his neck and shoot him in the eye. Because Y'know LG and TN.
The way is clear now, and can see the silhouettes of several dozen ponies as well as large heaps of something in the dim light.

You now have four firebombs
Borrowing Trusty's spyglass, you realize the heaps are dozens upon dozens of corpses surrounded by cultists. This must be initiation temple.
He briefly sums up the ritual
New initiates are brought in, they are shown the evidence of Ironhide's return, and read the story of his first coming. Once this is done, they swear a vow to spread the word and prepare the world for death.
He also tells you the leader has stolen the spell used to defeat Ironhide in the past, and that he keeps it in his private quarters. Finally he asks you to be careful with the bombs, as the bodies are quite flammable.
He seems to be falling for the act, but you miss the stab.
Think. Fast.

As you ready the arrow you snag the bowstring and misfire. The arrow lands in one of the corpse piles, which instantly ignites into a mighty pyre.
Every single cultist knows you are here. I suggest you either run like hell or roll for initiative.
In the momentary confusion brought by the sudden fiery explosion within the cave, you take the opportunity to stab the cult leader in the eye. He stumbles over in pain but is not dead.
Stand and fight?

You are caught unprepared, but luckily your plate protects you from the few initial blows
You on the other hand see them coming and crush one with your hammer, deflecting a blow from another.
Goat and Zebro flee the scene, leaving behind the sickly zombie cultist
You slam it between you and the advancing cultists. The wall of fire keeps them away from you, but you have blocked the cave exit for Dawn as well.
You slam your blade into the cult lord's torso as he struggles to get up. His eyes go wild as he realizes his death will not be the one he desired. Screaming and cursing, he slowly bleeds out.
The cave is on fire and the entrance is blocked.
Take your chances in here or try to flee with the spell?

Zebro and Goat have fled
Max and Radiant are fighting 5 cultists at the cave door
Trusty has blocked the door behind the cultists with fire
48 more cultists are trapped inside
Dawn is still inside

>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:07 No.1871569
Your cutie mark does not lie about your skills with the bow. An arrow strikes a cultist in the head, killing him instantly.
Four remain outside.
Sickly and frail in life, the cultist is little better in death. His weak blows deal little damage, and he is quickly cut apart by the enraged cultists.
The flames singe you as you use your own body to protect the spell page. Your pretty dress is ruined. Make a final roll to see how well you make it up the pit.
Caught initially off guard, Max takes a heavy battering from the remaining cultists. Blades find the weak points in his armour and he begins to feel weaker. His limbs no longer quite carry his weight and his blows lack the power they once had.
His life is fading, and without help, his end is soon here.
Radiant steps to assist Max, taking some of the blows for him. She still has fight left in her, but the scars won't make her stallionface any more ladylike.
Her holy water also fails to kill the raging inferno of countless flaming corpses slowly igniting and detonating dozens of cultists in a cramped cave.

Four cultists remain.

Max is dying
Radiant is wounded
Dawn needs to roll for a final push

Trusty is still at full fighting ability

Goat has fled for good

With a puff of soot you emerge from the pit, grasping the precious spell. You are singed and dirty, but alive. From below you can hear the echoing screams of those trapped below. They sought death, and death found them.
Hope for equestria still lives.
Unwilling to back down, you take your stand. You will win or die fighting.
Seeing Max is not backing down, you focus your effort into a protective spell. Drawing from the radiant glory of Celestia, you channel the burning heat into burning fervor, protecting yourself and your allies from harm.
The road is clear, and with Dawn out of the cave, there is nothing left to fight for here. With a mighty effort you hurl the remaining firebombs at the four cultists. The flames consume them quickly, detonating their own bombs, creating a fast but devastating chain reaction.
As the smoke blows away, you see the plan worked. The shield kept the others safe from the explosion, and the cultists are dead. The blazing fire has consumed the oxygen in the cave and the fire is dying down. Smoke is billowing from many pits around Canterlot, and there will be much explaining, investigating and cleaning up to do.
And then you arrive, just in time to not be in any danger whatsoever.

You now hold the first key to saving this land - the ancient spell used to weaken and bind Old Ironhide. If the historical records are correct, this should be one of the three things you need to ensure victory.
Next, you need to make a deal with the dragons.
But will we do that now, or next time?

I push Zebro hard against a wall and yell in his face "LEAVE US IN COMBAT AGAIN NEXT TIME, WILL YOU?!?!?"

2:23 am for me right now, and I have a cold so I'm not really at 100% performance.
That's hardcore man. Remind me to give you a bonus feat [NEEDS NO SLEEP]

Next Time is probably tomorrow.
I'll need to make a new "previously on MLP" image though.
>> Dawn [Rogue] 05/11/12(Fri)19:26 No.1871901
same time tomorrow?
>> Zebro [Necromancer] 05/11/12(Fri)19:26 No.1871903
Okay, geez
I won't do it again
stop being all over my zebra dick
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/11/12(Fri)19:26 No.1871905
around 20:00 again?
I'll be spending most of the day and afternoon playing Mordheim at my local club.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:26 No.1871910
Oh, and by the way

I push Trusty hard agains a wall after I let Zebro go, and yell in his face "IGNITE A WHOLE FUCKING CAVE FULL OF ARMED CULTIST ON US NEXT TIME, WILL YOU?"

Then I pat Max on the shoulder and say 'good job'
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/11/12(Fri)19:27 No.1871920
So I made notes

Trusty, earth pony tracker
True Neutral
Cutie Mark bullseye
Longbow, dagger, chainmail, cloak, basic adventuring gear
A flask of bugman's finest ale
Fire- and rope arrows

You brought
-A spyglass
-A compact pillow
-Some nets with leaves on them, perfect for camouflage
-dragon dagger, a set of dragon-fang tipped arrows, and 3 firebomb
-dragon bow

Trusty now knows [NATURAL CALL] and can mask his presence by pretending to be an animal

Radiant Dawn, Paladin
-Well, she's a muscular mare with a pretty stallion face.

Trusty, tracker
-my character

Dawn, Rogue
-Remember im the pretty one and I have Cloudchaser eyes.

Zebro, Necromancer
-Male zebra with a staff and a black robe

Goaty McGoaterson, Bard
-gray goat, nothing special, just remember i have a head-mounted harmonica like Tom Petty.
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:27 No.1871925
Earlier. I might go party at night, so we're probably looking at 10 to 12 hours from now for the next session.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:27 No.1871926
Same time tomorrow?
I'm ok with that.
>> Max [Knight] 05/11/12(Fri)19:27 No.1871933

>around 15:00
Fuck, I can't make it
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:28 No.1871952
I'd show my notes but they contain spoilers and point out a few places where I almost killed someone
>> Dawn [Rogue] 05/11/12(Fri)19:29 No.1871954
>between 2 and 4 am

Im going to miss it.
>> Max [Knight] 05/11/12(Fri)19:29 No.1871956
aw darn, I have a flight in 12 hours. if I can't make it, you guys can have another guy to fill my spot in.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:29 No.1871969
Umm, if you ever going to draw her in armor do something like this


With sun motifs and shit
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:31 No.1872001
Wow holy shit I'd lose four of you?
Well I can't give an exact time because at worst I just won't play tomorrow if the fever kicks in.
I'll give a warning about one hour before I start so people can prep.
Those here today get priority. If I can't get you together, the next session happens sort of parallel to this one or something.
I'll tie it together in the final chapter.
And remind me to pass out your loot next time.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:32 No.1872009
>people won't be able to make it tomorrow

Don't do this to, we're always failing, but we're a good group ;_;
>> Dawn [Rogue] 05/11/12(Fri)19:32 No.1872013
What if we wait for the next friday?
>> Zebro [Necromancer] 05/11/12(Fri)19:32 No.1872022
Fuck, I don't really want to lose anyone
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:33 No.1872028
Nah, that's way too long

By the way
>have a cold
>go to party

You sane, bro?
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/11/12(Fri)19:34 No.1872043
if I could, I would
I vote we wait for next friday, there are a few other people who are interested in doing their own quest thingies
me neither ;_;
But I can't skip the club anymore, I have the key to the fucking building
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:34 No.1872056
Not a chance.
I already called off a party tonight to be here with you.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:35 No.1872084
If tomorrow is not working out for you, what about Sunday?
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:36 No.1872106
By the way, I'm not a DM and I don't want to tell you what to do, but what about running a quest that is somehow connected to this, but not the 'going to the dragons' stuff, so others can join, and we'll do the other one when everyone's here?
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:36 No.1872108
Sunday is worse, I might be out of the house for the whole day and night.
Tomorrow morning/day/afternoon is the best for me. Night might be possible if I'm too sick to go anywhere else.
>> Dawn [Rogue] 05/11/12(Fri)19:39 No.1872148
Well lets see what happend.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:40 No.1872177
I'll try to be around to get a spot for tomorrow, but let's not run the Talking to Dragons stuff without everyone
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:40 No.1872181
I'll see what I can come up with.
All griffons game, griffon king mobilizes to take on the dragons diverting from their migration path. Dragon hunting in the snowy mountains!
>> Zebro [Necromancer] 05/11/12(Fri)19:41 No.1872202
Sounds >fun
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/11/12(Fri)19:42 No.1872213
Aw man I love snowy mountains
But yeah you could start a new quest with a different crew.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:43 No.1872232
So to anyone who is still here and to DM.
Is next Friday the nearest thing good for you?
What about weekdays?
Monday maybe?
>> Zebro [Necromancer] 05/11/12(Fri)19:44 No.1872246
I'm only free tomorrow and thursday to saturday next week
>> Dawn [Rogue] 05/11/12(Fri)19:44 No.1872258
Im open almost eveyr day.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:45 No.1872269
Now that I think about it, scratch that, weekdays won't be good for me next weekend.
Fuck, this will be like waiting for an episode.
One fucking week.

Maybe we'll be able to do miniquests in the meantime
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/11/12(Fri)19:45 No.1872279
I'm open from thursday to sunday, probably on monday too.
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:47 No.1872298
I have maybe two hours, four at best on weekdays.
Next thursday might work since it's a national day off.
Also tomorrow works.
And possibly friday next week
Saturday next week I'm busy again
>> Anonymous 05/11/12(Fri)19:47 No.1872299
That's not what the cult leader said about you.
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/11/12(Fri)19:47 No.1872301
anyway, gotta run, I guess I'll read the final solution from the archive
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:48 No.1872329
Next Friday it is...
We'll just have to make sure to pass it down to everyone who was here.
Fuck that, I'll wait the one week for it, this was tons of fun.
>> Dawn [Rogue] 05/11/12(Fri)19:49 No.1872342
Thats why i say almost.

Im ok with waiting a week.
>> Zebro [Necromancer] 05/11/12(Fri)19:49 No.1872347
I don't mind waiting
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:53 No.1872400
DM you still here?
I guess we decided to wait it out.
>> DM 05/11/12(Fri)19:54 No.1872428
Fine, I guess.
Here's hoping I can make it next week.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:55 No.1872437

By the way, on a scale of 1 to 10, how faggy would it be to write something about the Dawn sisters?
Maybe about the others as well?

>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)19:58 No.1872490
More like a background story, really.
Or the story of how the group comes together.
>> Anonymous 05/11/12(Fri)19:59 No.1872504
Then it wouldn't be faggy
I think
as long as it doesn't involve shipping

>Or the story of how the group comes together.

>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/11/12(Fri)20:00 No.1872527
Why would it involve shipping?
No one was involved romantically with anyone else.

It might turn out terrible.
But maybe I'll have a go at it.
