Questions done.

Also I've updated Naomi and Kale's character sheet to show that they's used 1 pool dice each.

If at any time you think you have hit a key or i've missed something please let me know here - and when you are writing feel free to add in an OOC gray comment saying what key you think you hit.

If Snargle wishes he can add a pool dice to Naomi's attack by creating a diversion from within the cell. To do this narrate the distraction and roll 1 dice and hope that it comes up a Success!!! If it does Naomi can narrate a successful attack, otherwise Sean has to narrate the guard turning and dodging or somesuch as her attack failed.

Naomi seemed to think my distraction was risky/reckless/dangerous. whistle Having pulled it off, did I hit my Key of the Daredevil?

Edit: and if I did hit it, did I go into danger doing so (2XP)?

Sorry that I was inactive this weekend. My ancient car finally broke down beyond repair so I was out trying to find a replacement.

I'm not entirely sure what I should be doing. I could use my knowledge of the ship and Warpblood to teleport to some guard post and phone down to the brig an order to release of all prisoners, or I could just warp outside of the cell and take out the loan guard strolling down the hallway.

---I paused in my typing at this point to catch up in the thread---

Looks like I'm late on the escape as 3/5 are already free and a lockpick is coming my way, so is it better to wait until Snargle reaches my cell or do I do something now?

Also, can I say snargle's "haughty voice" made me laugh and then he can hit his Secret of Banter?

Tough loving here:

I don't think you should get Key of the Daredevil as it wasn't actually that dangerous. It's not like you had a dozen laser pistols aimed at you. You hid. So no go there!

However, the Key of Banter I will give you So 1 XP for Snargle

Cool; fair enough. No harm in asking!

ooc: may I please claim:
- Key of the Guardian: for getting Natasha out of the cell.
and/or
- Key of the Warrior: for defeating a worthy foe (a trained and armed soldier)

I will happily give you Key of the Guardian as it was foremost in your mind the entire time - possibly more s even than yourself.

I'm not going to give you Key of the Warrior though. He wasn't exactly a worthy foe, not compared to your normal standards! Quite a walk-over really.... lol



Rich - you know, I'm getting quite used to and fond of, your first person narrative!

Fair cop.

If Naomi had killed the fallen guard (defenseless as he was) out of spite and hatred for all Imp's, could I have claimed Vengeance also?


And while I prefer Third-person narratives, I do enjoy reading Rich's posts, also. He'e an amusing writer, and easy to read.
In fact, we seem to have a group of good writers here, which really eccentuated the games fun.

I wasn't sure if I was pushing it too far there but I thought it followed logically that a locker would have the uniform of whoever owned it. And since there's only one guard the rest of the lockers should still have their uniform.

Does Snargle carry around a change of clothes or do those shapeshift with him as well? Perhaps that is a question better left unanswered lest we see the Olympia Maneuver plan played out in full...

Nope, nope, perfectly fine and exactly how you are supposed to do things

Heaven forbid...who knows? Maybe Goblins are hung like a horse...and have to have a permanant shape-shift on to disguise the fact lol

What else would Imperials be? Do you have a secondary humanoid race in mind for the Imps? If so you may wish to share with the others

I think maybe Ken meant goblins, though we've been using it as slang for Imperials.

You know, I honestly thought of Imps as, you know, imps:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imp

Not Imp for Imperial.

I'll change my post since no one has replied yet and that makes more sense.

Wait... goblins serve in the Imperial Navy? But they're just beastly things!

Edited To Add (aka ETA): Maybe they serve as civilian or slave labor? Coal shovelers, drudge work?

maybe we just need to open the door from the cell block and see what's outside.

I'm patiently watching and waiting for you all to do stuff


You are all in the middle of a nice conversation and at some point one of you should escalate the situation by opening the door.

Simples.
