Welcome to the Dancing Fox Inn! Come and try our one of a kind beverages and food, chat with friends, or grab a private room and relax. All are welcome to the Dancing Fox Inn.

We would like to ask, please, no smoking in the establishment. Thank you for understanding.. Be sure to enjoy your stay.

If your characters are upstairs, please use this thread (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=100440) to avoid confusing the other occupants

There is no map. The Inn has as much space as is needed, as many tables as is needed, as many rooms as needed (Upstairs), as many corners as needed, and so on.
There is, however, a description:

The inn is . . . indescribable. Size wise, anyway. It has as many tables as needed, and as many chairs as needed. So that needn't be said as well.
However, the floors have been . . . completely changed.
They were rough hewn logs. They are now laminated hardwood. All of the broken, dirty glasses and silverware have been removed, and replaced with better, more functional (And clean) ones. The kitchen is, by far, the best room in the inn. Sparklingly clean, the best equipment out there, and so on. The entire inn has been renovated. It is now made of better wood, and is much cleaner. It's not the prettiest building in the town, but it's functional. Which is what counts.
Also, any damage done to the inn will fix itself by the next day. So don't worry.

Disclaimer: The only thing changing about the inn is the size. So it will allow anyone in. And will supply as many corners as needed. Nothing else is changing. And it never does change. It just . . . you watch it, it . . seems to stay the same, but you know it changes, but . . . it doesn't, but . . .. (Think about it, and your head will explode)

2009-08-14, 03:21 PM
I do.
How 'bout you?

I'm set. She smiles.

2009-08-14, 03:22 PM
We'll leave tonight.

2009-08-14, 03:23 PM
How long does this convention last? Days, years?

2009-08-14, 03:23 PM
I didn't even know you guys were organized like that.

2009-08-14, 03:24 PM
We'll be back next friday or saturday, Riki.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 03:24 PM
Chas is at the bar.

Richard just walked in.

2009-08-14, 03:26 PM
Yeah, sorcerer's always seemed so independent for the most part. And most other casters are a bit the same.
She looks at Solomon.
What are Friday and Saturday?

2009-08-14, 03:26 PM
And though I'm sure many of the attendants will have fiendish slaves and servants, I doubt many will have a fiendish partner-slash-lover.
She smiles.

2009-08-14, 03:29 PM
Yeah... About that... Here's a tip for you.

If you see any old creepy guys wearing one of these...

He holds up the necklace that he's wearing.

I'd stay away from him.

Top strength demon-binders.

2009-08-14, 03:46 PM
Well, you said next, so I guess within 10 days, right?

Probably not. You're one of a kind.

2009-08-14, 03:55 PM
Oh, by the way,
He says to Riki.
Sorry about earlier.

2009-08-14, 03:59 PM
It's okay. What you said was true. Too bad for you though, you only got half of how reality is.
She smiles.
And I apologize as well. Your profession isn't as evil as I used to think, I was just angry.

2009-08-14, 04:02 PM
No... I meant just a few minutes ago when I was laug-
He cuts himself off abruptly.

Nevermind, I forgot that didn't happen.

Let's just pretend that what you said was exactly what I meant.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 04:11 PM
Richard sits downa nd orders some wine. he seems stressed.

2009-08-14, 04:12 PM
Oh, when I thought Solomon was going to kill me? Yeah, I probably did have an odd expression.
She flips the rock into the air and then it vanishes.
Right, and I never revealed that I don't hate musicians.
She grins at Psudo.
((deadtime. May be back in a short or long while.))

2009-08-14, 05:00 PM
Deal, but seriously... Don't fear death around every corner.

I've got another chance, do I dare?

2009-08-14, 05:05 PM
I don't. I've died 3 times already. What's once more? It was the feeling of betrayal I was afraid of.
1/2 smile.
((What sort of creature is Psudo? A human, right?))

The not-looking-or-sounding-like-Alice Alice is here again.
Mostly because she doesn't want to be harassed.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 05:08 PM
Ricahrd is at the bar, smoking a cigar.

2009-08-14, 05:09 PM
The not-looking-or-sounding-like-Alice Alice is here again.
Mostly because she doesn't want to be harassed.

How about the sound of her footsteps, breathing, gait, and so on?

The oak tree has almost totally red leaves now.

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 05:11 PM
How about the sound of her footsteps, breathing, gait, and so on?

The oak tree has almost totally red leaves now.

It doesn't matter.
It would all be different.
Since she took on someone else's identity.
So the only thing that's the same really is the mind.

2009-08-14, 05:15 PM
(As far as you can tell, yes. :smalltongue:)

Nah... The joke's not worth that.

He mumbles something indescriminantly.

Well, I'm gonna bail everyone out of a rut.

(Yes he's yelling at volume level 1, deal with it.)

2009-08-14, 05:17 PM
What was that you said?
She peers at him curiously.
Oh hello, musician who never told me his name.

2009-08-14, 05:21 PM
Oh, nothing. I just thought my father might know you...

And I really don't have a name, well, I hate it, so I call myself Psudonym.

2009-08-14, 05:25 PM
He might; I know a lot of people. Who's your father?
She nods at him.
That's interesting. Should we call you by the whole thing? Or Psu? Or Nym?
((And the player has to go again. See ya.))

2009-08-14, 05:26 PM
For all I care, call my Fredrick. I don't really need a name in the first place.

And... I don't like to talk about my father.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 05:49 PM
Richard pulls out a small handheld radio and places it on the bar infront of him. He flicks it onto the britannian news channel.

...Terrorist attacks in the north river, south wall, and slums district continue today. It has been confirmed the attacks are by a group calling themselves the "BPLA"...

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 05:50 PM
Mica walks in just as the radio is turned on.
She stares at it thoughtfully.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 05:56 PM
the radio continues to play

...The attack is still continueing, but is reported that so far there is upward of 150 victems, the majority of which are middle class or peasents...

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 05:58 PM
Argh I gotta deadtime for dinner.
Tell Quin for me.

2009-08-14, 06:03 PM
What's playing?
Psudo asks.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:05 PM
The news...
Richard mutters.

...and there are rumors of a bigger attack coming soon...

2009-08-14, 06:08 PM

I always stay out of those... Until I'm older... Then I won't have a choice.

Why do you listen to this crap?

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:10 PM
...Because its whats going on in my country of which I rule over.

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 06:17 PM
At the phrase bigger attack
Mica's hand goes to her gun.
Attack huh?

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:21 PM
yes, my capitol city is being attacked.

2009-08-14, 06:22 PM
:smallsigh: I'm sorry.

Good luck not dying.

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 06:23 PM
By the BPLA?
She is continuing to think through scenarios and such.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:25 PM
Yes the BPLA... revolutionary scum, all of them.

at that moment, 2 BPLA soldiers walk in the door, shouting
Join the fight against the tryanny of-
then they see Richard, who glares at them
oh ****
and they run.

2009-08-14, 06:27 PM
Now, THAT was funny.

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 06:27 PM
Mica chuckles to herself.
Seems like you frighten them.
I'm assuming you're the 'tyrant' the want people to fight.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:29 PM
Yup. They have a problem with the whole feudal system, the base of our country's society.

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 06:31 PM
Mica smiles fiercely.
Fortunately for you, I have no such problem. Unfortunately, I never paid attention in history, so I have no idea how this battle will end.

2009-08-14, 06:33 PM
Not even his name? Alright.
Riki watches the BPLA run off.
Any chance you and they will kill each other, Richard?

2009-08-14, 06:35 PM
The feudal system is better than what we used where I grew up.

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:37 PM
My army and I plan on slaughtering the little rats. The cops have a problem with it, though, so I can only dismember them as soon as they step off the borders of the town.

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 06:40 PM
How big of an army do you have?

2009-08-14, 06:42 PM
Nym, would that be anarchy then?
Richard's answer disturbs her.
Couldn't you just wave your hand and make them forget that they're revolutionaries or something? Oh, and what are you the god of?

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:43 PM
I'm a god of war, not a mind-controller. 10 million strong, yet not all of them can be in one place at the same time.

Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 06:45 PM
One question. How many creatures/people are on the side of the BPLA?

2009-08-14, 06:46 PM
First there's a loud argument.
Then everybody kills each other.
Then everything stays the same.

I'd say it was anarchy if there wasn't so much beuracracy in it.

2009-08-14, 06:48 PM
Oh. I'm sorry.

God of war ah? Point against you there.
((Deadtime for dinner. Bye.))

Chas the mage
2009-08-14, 06:49 PM
the BPLA has atleast 3 million, if not more. They also have many peasent supporters and allies.


Moofin Bard
2009-08-14, 06:51 PM
Mica nods.
So it's plausibly an even fight.
Need anymore help?

2009-08-14, 06:53 PM

Well, whoever wins, I'll play at their victory party

2009-08-14, 07:02 PM
Jaya has been listening to this.
Why do they really fight, it's not because of the system, you must've done something to the people?

2009-08-14, 07:04 PM
He might not, although I find it helpful to assume that he did. I mean, he's a god of war.
Some feudal places can get as bad as the drow theocracies, except without any religious glue in the system.
((Sorry, you never saw me here.))

2009-08-14, 08:04 PM
Solomon is here.
he has a suitcase.

2009-08-14, 08:26 PM
Liache has one too.
((I has saltwater taffy.))

2009-08-14, 08:27 PM
When you want to leave?

2009-08-14, 08:30 PM
Soon, if we wish to beat the rush and acquire a comfortable space for ourselves.

2009-08-14, 08:31 PM
Okay. It's your call when we leave.

2009-08-14, 08:32 PM
I've just realized...
I haven't asked you what your last name is. She blinks.

2009-08-14, 08:34 PM
My last name?
My last name is Misiati.

2009-08-14, 08:42 PM
I like it.
Liache Misiati... hm...
Don't jump the gun, Liache.

2009-08-14, 08:43 PM
Solomon blushes, overhearing her.

2009-08-14, 08:43 PM
Silva undeadtimes, presumably still with Areisha's journal.

Alysha undeadtimes with lemonade in hand.

2009-08-14, 08:45 PM
Liache smiles and puts a wing around Solomon.
Don't worry about that now. We'll take care of that in its own time.

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 08:45 PM
Umbrella-Chan walks in. Fourteen year old girl that looks like she's twelve. Long black hair, wears a long black dress, and long black gloves. She has red irises and pale skin, and an umbrella. It's black. She looks bored.

2009-08-14, 08:46 PM
Yes, Ariesha's journal is still deserted on the table.

Of course we will.:smallsmile:

2009-08-14, 08:48 PM
Silva will pick up where she last left off in the journal.

Alysha smiles and waves to Unbrella-Chan.

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 08:50 PM
Umbrella-chan waves to her, bored. She yawns.

2009-08-14, 08:51 PM
And now it's time for us to go.
She hefts her case of suits.

2009-08-14, 08:53 PM
On the next age is a colored drawing of little Areisha, crying, she's very dirty, and has some chicken feathers and leaves sticking out of her dress. She's in the kitchen of the house from the first page, her angry looking mother is pressing her hand against a red hot burner. There are runes under the picture.

Off we!
he stands with the bags and opens a portal.

2009-08-14, 08:57 PM
Goodbye you two.
Riki waves, and watches them.
((and goes back to being deadtimed.:smallsigh:))

2009-08-14, 08:58 PM

Onward to CasterCon. She steps through le portal with him, waving to Riki.

2009-08-14, 08:59 PM
Mentally, Silva cringes a little. Then she turns the page.

Alysha gives a wave to Riki, then turns to talk to Umbrella-Chan. Hi! I'm Alysha! What's your name?

2009-08-14, 09:00 PM
Then next page is a picture of Areisha and the girlfriend from earlier in the book screaming at each other. There are ruins under it.

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 09:01 PM
I do not have one.

2009-08-14, 09:03 PM
Silva looks at that for a moment, thinking of a break up. Probably the one that made her almost tear out the earlier page. She turns the page.

Alysha tilts her head a little. Really? Huh. Well...what do you want to be called?

2009-08-14, 09:05 PM
On the next page is the break up. Areisha is sitting on a bust street curb crying, an upturned ice cream cone by her feet. The former girlfriend is walking away, into the crowds. Across the street sme people are pointing and laughing. Runes like always, are under the picture.

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 09:07 PM
I do not really care. Call me whatever you wish.

2009-08-14, 09:09 PM
Silva stares at this for a moment, wondering what went wrong. Then she turns the page.

Uh...ok... She puts her hand on her chin in a thinking pose. Really, she's stalling a little to see if Umbrella-Chan suggests anything.

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 09:10 PM
Umbrella-Chan just looks at her in her thinking pose.

Don't hurt yourself.

2009-08-14, 09:16 PM
On the next page is a pictue of an older man, bakd, and wearing fine clothes. he's holding a gem, he's black and white.

2009-08-14, 09:18 PM
Silva eyes the gem for a few moments, then turns the page.

Alysha giggles. Ok. I'll call you Bella.
So, what do you do, Bella?

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 09:19 PM
Absolutely nothing around here. It's really boring. She says in her adorable monotone.

2009-08-14, 09:20 PM
It's a picture of the man, standing over Areisha, she's trying to work a gem, and he seems to be teaching her how. It's colored, and above wounds.

2009-08-14, 09:22 PM
Must be who taught her jewel craft. She turns the page.

Well, you can find stuff to do. Like play with Opie!

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 09:23 PM
That might get boring after all. Ferrets sort of lose their novelty after a while.

2009-08-14, 09:30 PM
On the next page is little Areisha, playing fetch with Echo. She's using a big femur of something.
At this point, real Areisha steps in, she stares at Silvia in horror, very upset.

2009-08-14, 09:33 PM
Silva hasn't seen the real Areisha yet. She smiles a little at the picture and goes to turn to the next page.

Alysha shakes her head. Not Opie. He'll figure out something new to do.

At this point, Opie hops onto the table, gives a squeak, and nods, as if agreeing with Alysha.

2009-08-14, 09:33 PM
Well, Beans needs a new character.
So, she'll probably step in through the door---
What in the name of Knoxkast was that?!
Well, it came from outside and it sounded like something plummeting from the sky and smashing into the street.

2009-08-14, 09:34 PM
As the page goes up, Areisha growls, runs to the table, and slams the book shut.

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 09:35 PM
Umbrella-Chan ignores noise. Yay apathy!

Hello Opie. Umbrella-Chan says, looking at Opie with the slightest hint of a smile.

2009-08-14, 09:37 PM
There is the clacking sound of a few bits of rubble falling about outside.

2009-08-14, 09:37 PM
Opie squeaks back, as if saying hello in return. Then he'll move a little closer, then go to climb to her head.

Alysha heard the noise. She'll go outside to investigate.

Silva jumps back in her seat a little. Oh, hey Areisha! Her expression goes from surprised to a relieved smile.

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 09:39 PM
Umbrella-Chan won't let him touch her, but will permit him to ride on the closed umbrella, which she'll lift over her head.

2009-08-14, 09:41 PM
And the thingy is now in the Streets thread.

2009-08-14, 09:41 PM
What the ****, Sylvia?
She is angry.

2009-08-14, 09:45 PM
To the streets Alysha goes!

Opie squeaks on his way up. First time he's rode an umbrella. Once it stops moving, he see to hanging off the edge.

Ok, I probably shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry. I was just kinda curious.

2009-08-14, 09:48 PM
This is my life!
All my secrets are in here!

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 10:00 PM
And... She opens the umbrella. With a sound effect of some variety. I unno.

2009-08-14, 10:03 PM
Opie lets out a joyful squeak. That was fun.

I know. And...well, I'm kinda interested in your life. I just...wanna know more about you, I guess. Silva seems slightly uncomfortable right now. Just a little. Like she really has to think about what she's saying.

2009-08-14, 10:04 PM
She sighs, and tries to sit next to Sylvia.
You could have asked...
i probably would have told you...

Shades of Gray
2009-08-14, 10:07 PM

2009-08-14, 10:08 PM
Into the Inn, a strange girl is carried by Alysha (assuming Alysha didn't randomly explode on the way in).
In the light, more is revealed.
She's still naked (cover thine eyes, Opie!), cold, and wet; she looks about 18, pale, and has brown hair with reddish streaks throughout. She has red eyes... er... correction. Eye. Her right eye socket is empty and a little bloody.
And her teeth seem to be chrome.
A briefcase-sized case is gripped in her hand.

2009-08-14, 10:09 PM
((Night Shades))

Silva sighs a little. Yeah. But, I saw it sitting there, and I got curious.

At this point, Alysha comes in. She's fairly soaked, and she's carrying a mostly naked woman in her arms. Alysha's hoodie is draped over the woman. She'll take her to the stairs and straight up to a room, where she'll lay the woman on a bed and put the covers over her.

2009-08-14, 10:11 PM
She pauses for a minute, setting the book on the table.
What do you want to know?

2009-08-14, 10:13 PM
The girl soon begins to stir.

2009-08-14, 10:16 PM
Well...who was that guy with the jewel? He's the one who taught you how to make jewelry, right?

Alysha sits in a chair near the bed. Take it easy.

2009-08-14, 10:18 PM
She points vaguely at her eye socket, then at the case.

The case has a simple latch on it, no locks.

2009-08-14, 10:18 PM
She frowns, and skips to the page with the man.
That's Jackob.. Yeah, he taught me how to do gemcraft...
Se how th epicture isn't colored..? When the picutr of a person or place isn't colored, it means that person is dead, or that places is destroyed.

2009-08-14, 10:20 PM
Oh... Areisha might be able to tell that Silva is trying to choose her questions carefully. So, who were the girls? Were they school friends?

Alysha seems slightly confused, but she'll go to open the case.

2009-08-14, 10:22 PM
Yeah, they were my best friends in school.

2009-08-14, 10:23 PM
There are clothes---a pair of dull jeans, a tan summer top, undies, etc---an enclosed box, and a white straplike thingy that seems to be an eyepatch.

2009-08-14, 10:27 PM
What were their names?


Patch... and then it clicks. She grabs the eye patch and goes to put it on the woman, over the eye she pointed at earlier.

2009-08-14, 10:29 PM
It is put on.
She sighs.

2009-08-14, 10:30 PM
She goes back to the first one, the brown haired one, the black and white one.
This is Jessica. SHe was my best friend in high school.

2009-08-14, 10:32 PM
What happened to her? If you don't mind me asking.


For having randomly found somebody who was ejected out of some kind of space capsule or something, Alysha is unusually cheery.

You're welcome! I'm Alysha. What's your name?

2009-08-14, 10:34 PM
She drowned...
We were picknicking by a river, he went in to cool off, and got dragged away by the under current...
We couldn't save her...

2009-08-14, 10:36 PM
She sits up a little.
R--- R---
Renata... H-Heinz. Chrome teeth!
If that particular name is in any way familiar to you, good job on your memory.

2009-08-14, 10:37 PM
((Heinz...ketchup? That's all I get.))

Oh...I'm sorry...


Hi Renata! So, uh, do you know what happened to you? Like, why were you in that weird metal pod thingy?

2009-08-14, 10:40 PM
((Eh, I figured you wouldn't remember much.
Maybe Shades, others... mreh.))
Can't 'member much...
She sits up moar.
C'dja help me get dressed?

2009-08-14, 10:41 PM
She turns to the black haired girl.
This is Mellissa... My first... Girlfriend...

2009-08-14, 10:45 PM
Was she the one in the other pictures?


Huh? Oh...uh...I guess... She'll pull out the clothes from the case.

2009-08-14, 10:45 PM
EDIT: Wrong place.

2009-08-14, 10:46 PM
Which other pictures...?

2009-08-14, 10:46 PM
(Guess who's back!?)

(...And know's who you're talking about, but didn't forsee that particular plot twist.)

Sanford (Droney) sits in the corner. He tilts his head up at the word "Heinz", but otherwise just watches.

2009-08-14, 10:48 PM
She slides herself out of bed, getting rather quickly into her undies.
She seems to have an umber star tattooed on her right upper arm.
W's your name? Still only semi-awake, she climbs into her jeans.

2009-08-14, 10:51 PM
Sorry, I read back, but I must have missed that.
Riki'll just look for a coat rack.

2009-08-14, 10:51 PM
((Um, Alysha and Renata are kinda in a separate room upstairs.))

Well, like your apartment. The picture that was on the desk. She doesn't wanna mention the break-up one.


Nice tattoo.

2009-08-14, 10:52 PM
Th-that's Morgan...
Melissa and myself just kind of... drifted apart after school.

2009-08-14, 10:53 PM
She pulls the top over her head, then fumbles her feet into a pair of army boots.

2009-08-14, 10:54 PM
Sorry, like I edited, I missed that somehow when I read what I had missed.
Finding and/or creating a coat rack, Riki hangs up that blue cloak, glares at it for a moment, and looks around sadly.
((So, the upstairs thread not working out?))

2009-08-14, 10:55 PM
((Actually, I completely forgot about the upstairs thread. Shall we move this there Beans?))

Oh...So, feel like telling me about Morgan?


So what's it for? She's still referring to the tattoo.

2009-08-14, 10:57 PM
(Yeah, that would've helped. :smalltongue:)

It's already established that he can sense things through solid objects.

He heard that sentence and the ability imediantly ceases to work for all eternity.

2009-08-14, 10:57 PM
((The Upstairs thread and I broke up a while ago.
Wha's your name? She manages to tie the laces. She is approaching full awareness.

2009-08-14, 10:58 PM
((Perhaps we should put a link in the OP. ))

Riki continues looking, thinking that she saw Opie.

2009-08-14, 11:00 PM
Morgan was... She took me away from my parents, made me feel safe. We dated for twenty-two years... We were going to get married... But... I wanted children. She didn't, she said people would think we were freaks. She was embarassed of me, was afraid to come out as a lesbian. We argued. A lot. One day, we drove to a city. I went to get us ice cream, she just abandoned me there. I hitch hiked home, found everything gone, and a note saying I was a whore, and that I should never be happy...

2009-08-14, 11:02 PM
Riki thought right. He's on the bar right now.


Silva can't think of anything to say to that. So, she goes to put a hand on Areisha's shoulder.


I'm Alysha! She'll hold out a hand to shake.

2009-08-14, 11:03 PM
Areisha stares at her journal. She turned to the page of Morgan and herself making out.

2009-08-14, 11:05 PM
((Quin, I see a bit of why we work so well together.
We both have a capacity to be undyingly cruel to our characters.
She shakes the hand, then sorta collapse-sits on the bed, blinking.
And comes fully alert.
She looks up quickly. The haze of half-sleep is gone; her eye darts this way and that.
W-where am I?

2009-08-14, 11:05 PM
Riki as a weasel will walk over to the bar.
Heya Opie! How have you been?

2009-08-14, 11:07 PM
(Check the OP)

Sanford generically sits there.

2009-08-14, 11:08 PM
Great! I met a girl with an umbrella! It's fun to ride!


Silva sees that. She'll attempt to close the journal.


This is the Dancing Fox Inn. Nice place.

2009-08-14, 11:08 PM
((Of course!))
Areisha sticks a finger in it.
Wanna see something else?

2009-08-14, 11:11 PM
She seems a bit skittish.
T-thanks... I'm gonna go down, see what's th-there... She extends straps from the case, closes it, and fiddles a bit---and lo, it has become a backypack!
She dons it and begins heading for the stairs, a little shaky.

2009-08-14, 11:12 PM

Jaya is here.

And because I can Jack is here.

2009-08-14, 11:13 PM
Kigg, Rakker, Tarnor bust in through the door.


2009-08-14, 11:13 PM
Oh, the rain thing! Yeah, I bet it would be. Its sad that she doesn't have a name though.
Heya Jaya.
Riki is currently a weasel, so Jaya probably won't recognize her.

2009-08-14, 11:16 PM
Alysha said she was gonna call her Bella. Then Opie sees Kigg. He lets out a big squeak and rushes over.




Alysha will follow her. That was cool! I want one.

2009-08-14, 11:17 PM
Jaya glances at the weasel.
I didn't know weasels talked.

Jack looks at Kigg's characters.

2009-08-14, 11:19 PM
She smiles, and flips forward a few thousand pages. Hey! It's a picure of Silvia. she's surrounded by the runes.

2009-08-14, 11:19 PM
"OPIE!!!!" Kigg runs up tot Opie and playfully attacks him.

"What you looking at punk?"

Tarnor sulks over to the bar and begins polishing a Jelloton Rifle.

2009-08-14, 11:20 PM
Renata (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6727448&postcount=189) (linky is linky-flavored) totters down the steps and sees Sanford.
She heads straight for him.
A d-drone... all the way out here...

2009-08-14, 11:20 PM
That . . . actually works. And they talk when they're really elves. If you had talked to - nevermind.
Riki goes back to her normal form, and walks generally towards Jaya.

2009-08-14, 11:22 PM
Hey Kigg! How you doing!


Silva smiles. What's with the writing?


Drone? You mean like a robot thingy? Yeah, there's a few around here.

2009-08-14, 11:23 PM
It's a language I made...
Only three people can read it...
Me, Mirgan... And... Smith...
It protects my secrets.

2009-08-14, 11:24 PM
Jaya blinks.
So you're a shapeshifter?
Well I might've already known that.

Jack blinks again, and scoots over to Alysha.
What's a drone?

2009-08-14, 11:25 PM
Of course.
She tries to pull the turn into Jaya trick. Unless she's mimic-proof.
What is it that you do?

2009-08-14, 11:26 PM
"Well after fighting off alligators in the Amazon I came here. YOU?!?!?!"

Rakkar walks over to Jack, "Hey punk, what was that Buwaaa stuff?"

Tarnor still sitting.

2009-08-14, 11:28 PM
Uhhh, not a lot really.
My drow powers don't work up here very well.

Jack looks up.
Oh I was just sorta curious as why you said "Braaawwww"

2009-08-14, 11:30 PM
Drone? You mean like a robot thingy? Yeah, there's a few around here.
Renata doesn't seem to hear; she goes and clutches at Sanford's arms like he's some sort of big teddy bear she lost and just found again.

2009-08-14, 11:31 PM
And my vampire powers don't work at all. The downside of being alive. You haven't learned any new thing to replace them?

2009-08-14, 11:32 PM
Jaya blinks.
She is confused...

2009-08-14, 11:33 PM
Mostly fun times! Except when the crazy lady tries to kill me.


That's pretty handy.


Alysha looks at Jack. A kind of robot. Not sure what makes it different from other kinds. She glances at Renata and giggles a little.

2009-08-14, 11:33 PM
Oh, you weren't here when I explained that to Nym. I used to be a vampire. Once upon a time. By which I of course mean last month.
She shakes her head.
Then some machine killed me, and Lupy brought me back to my original life.

2009-08-14, 11:34 PM
She turns the page again. There's a picture of Silvia and Areisha, Areisha's arm around silvia. They're smiling. Under the picture it more runes.

2009-08-14, 11:35 PM
"Oh yeah, hows that been going?"

"It's called making a entrance scene!" Rakkar goes into smack Jack for insolance.
In 3 post Tarnor will fill everyones face with jello.
Keeps on sitting. Polishing rifle.

2009-08-14, 11:38 PM
She blinks again.
I see...
As for your question, I'm going to go with natural ability.

Jack cowers a bit as he is smacked.
Wait, what's a robot?

2009-08-14, 11:39 PM
Hey, whatever works for you. You usually won't need it; this place is relatively safe.
Riki smiles at her.

2009-08-14, 11:41 PM
Good. Haven't seen her in a while. And Alysha keeps me safe. We met a girl with an umbrella today. She said she doesn't have a name, so Alysha called her Bella.


Silva smiles again. And goes to put her arm around Areisha's shoulders again.


A mechanical thing people can make. Runs off of electricity, and has a computer for a brain. They can be made to do all sorts of things.

2009-08-14, 11:41 PM
Renata deadtimes, 'cause Selmy (and thus Sanford) has as well.

2009-08-14, 11:42 PM
She smiles, and turns the page.
On the next page is Smith. Runes around him.

2009-08-14, 11:44 PM
"Bella eh? Where did you meet her?"

"HEY! Eyes in front Buddy!"
2 posts till it goes down.
Tarnor loads the gun with Jello.

2009-08-14, 11:45 PM
Jaya starts laughing hysterically.
HAHAHA, no hee really...

Jack blinks.
So it's a person that can be made by people...?

Jack turns to Rakkar again.
Ahhh sorry!

2009-08-14, 11:48 PM
Have you ever been in a fight here? If so, well there's a reason I included the word "relatively".
She looks at Jaya questioningly, like a bird.

2009-08-14, 11:48 PM
Here. She gave me a ride on the umbrella. It was fun!


You still miss him?


Alysha turns to Rakkar. Hey! Stop being mean to him!

2009-08-14, 11:48 PM
She nods.
I do, a lot.

2009-08-14, 11:50 PM
"Awsome! How's everyone else been?"

Turning to Alysha, "Do you want someone's attention when you talk to them? Huh? HUH?!?!"
1 Post to go... Hen Hen Hen
Tarnor turns around.

2009-08-14, 11:54 PM
Jaya raises an eyebrow.
Well no, but that's because I choose not to get involved.

Jack interjects.
hey come on guys,
so uh who are you stranger?
He asks Rakkar.

A ravik plot clone walks in.

2009-08-14, 11:56 PM
Okay, well, there are less safe places. But you seem like oyu could easily take care of yourself.

A cat jumps toward Kigg's head.

2009-08-14, 11:58 PM
Good. Zaydon's part of the police force now. And Kowalski is mayor.


Silva goes to rub Areisha's shoulder a little.


Yeah, but I don't smack people for it!

2009-08-15, 12:01 AM
"Wow, that's impressive."

"Rakkar Richard Railstorm, and don't you forget it."
Tarnor loads the Jello rifle and begins shooting jello cubes at everyone in the Inn. He then runs out the door screaming wildly!

2009-08-15, 12:03 AM
Reisha leans into Silvia.

2009-08-15, 12:06 AM
Opie nods excitedly. Then he looks over at Rakkar and Alysha. Looks like Alysha met Rakkar. Doesn't seem like she likes him.


Silva smiles a little and just holds her arm where it is.


Well, I'm Alysha, and he's Jack. And you need to work on your people skills. She's trying to stare him down. But, she has a kind of small frame, and she's not very tall. The effect probably won't work that well.

2009-08-15, 12:07 AM
Jaya sighs a bit.
I still don't plan to.

Jack nods.
Jack Al'athandor.

Ravik clone cases Tarnor out with his rubber chicken launcher.
EDIT: Covered in gelatin.

2009-08-15, 12:09 AM
"Not many people do." *sigh* Slids jello off face.

"Pleased you made my accquantiance." As he licks the jello off his face.

2009-08-15, 12:10 AM
No, but you could. Or get us to protect you.
Eyes closed smile.
The cat jumps off of Kigg and looks at Opie.

2009-08-15, 12:17 AM
Jaya shakes her head.
I'd rather not drag other's into my problems if they arise.

Jack blinks thinks for a moment and shakes his head.
So, uh where you from?

2009-08-15, 12:21 AM
Not what I meant silly.
She opens her eyes.
That's quite noble of you though.

2009-08-15, 12:21 AM
Opie waves at the cat. Hi!


Alysha just kind of glares at Rakkar.

2009-08-15, 12:22 AM
Areisha purrs happily, leaning against Sylvia.

2009-08-15, 12:22 AM
"A small kingdom that burned to ground, BY MY HANDS!!!!" Rakkar laughs evily.

Kigg keeps playing with Opie.

2009-08-15, 12:23 AM
Jack being slightly airheaded...
Believes him,

Jaya smiles.
Thank you.

2009-08-15, 12:27 AM
You're welcome.
Riki smiles back.

Hi. Derrik the cat waves back, and walks up to Opie.

2009-08-15, 12:27 AM
I'm Opie! What's your name?


Silva still smiles. So, where were you?


Alysha scoffs a little.

2009-08-15, 12:28 AM

2009-08-15, 12:31 AM

2009-08-15, 12:32 AM
Jack is kinda confused right now and doesn't really respond.

Jaya nods a bit.
So what's been going on for you?

2009-08-15, 12:36 AM
Earlier. When your journal was here.


Alysha sighs.

2009-08-15, 12:37 AM
Got tricked, did something horrible. Ended up keeping my name and my life though. Some people take things less seriously than snake-people do, I guess.
Riki shrugs.
Realized that the nicest person I know is a daemon, which really confused me at first. And looking for clothes to fit a 7 year old human.
How about you?

I'm Derrik. Why are you blue?

2009-08-15, 12:39 AM
I'm leaving Town for a bit. To get my gems restocked.

2009-08-15, 12:39 AM
"But in other news, could you buy me some Booze?" Rakkar gives the puppy eyes of DOOM.

2009-08-15, 12:41 AM
I'm not even old enough to drink.

Jaya blinks.
Oh... Fun...
The usual,

2009-08-15, 12:42 AM
Opie shrugs a little. I don't know. Ask Kigg.


Oh. You want some help with that?


No. Alcohol is the last thing you need.

And then they all deadtime. Night all.

2009-08-15, 12:43 AM
"So? Will you?" Still has puppy eye's of doom.

2009-08-15, 12:43 AM
Nah. I'll be back around next week.

2009-08-15, 12:44 AM
Depends on your view of fun.
Riki smiles.
Well, get out more. Do something - here, what do you like to do?

I don't think he understands us cats.

2009-08-15, 12:46 AM
I don't really do anything.

Jack shakes his head.

2009-08-15, 12:47 AM
"I understand cats fine, thank you very much."

Rakkar changes his hand from a hand to a claw.
"What do you mean, NO?"

2009-08-15, 12:51 AM
Is there anything you used to want to do?
Search for spiders? Go to the beach, or the forest? Talk to your friends more often? Save someone's soul? Get someone to fall in love with you? Go hunting?

Oh. Why is Opie blue?

2009-08-15, 12:55 AM
Last two absolutely not.
Second to last one went horribly wrong.
I don't really know, being who I am I never really cared about what I want, just went around promoting the ideals of others...

Jack's eyes widen in terror.
I mean no.

2009-08-15, 12:57 AM
"Because all weasel/ferrets have a ressive gene to have blue fur."

"So you have a death wish, eh Porky?" Rakkar flashes the claws.

2009-08-15, 01:00 AM
Well, not hunting I can understand, and souls are tricky things. Now I didn't mean with a spell or a potion or anything. Just the normal way.
Riki sighs, looking sad now.
It's good to champion causes and work for good things, but it's sad to see you just sit around in here, like Chas.


2009-08-15, 01:06 AM
Well, that's no what I meant, but what would you want to do I got no ideas.

Jack is still in terror.
Hey man it's just beer.

2009-08-15, 01:07 AM
"Yep yep yep."

"Yes, but I'm an alchoholic."

2009-08-15, 01:11 AM
What did you mean then?
Riki's a bit confused here.
And those things I just listed were my ideas. I'm a bit lost myself.

2009-08-15, 01:13 AM
Well I don't know any souls that need saving, I think we just talked to friends more often...
Why spiders?

Yeah but that's not gonna help anything...

2009-08-15, 01:14 AM
"Feed the addiction. FEED IT!!!!"

2009-08-15, 01:16 AM
Aw, thanks Jaya.
Riki glances back and forth.
That part was just because I used to be a semi-professional spider hunter.
And then smiles.
And if you don't like the idea of hunting or romance, that leaves visiting places, ah?

2009-08-15, 01:19 AM
Jaya shrugs.
I suppose.

Jack shakes his head.
I don't even have money!

2009-08-15, 01:20 AM

2009-08-15, 01:23 AM
Now it is!
Jack runs out of inn, and deadtimes.

Jaya smiles and does the same.

2009-08-15, 01:24 AM
Hey, you don't have to. It's your time. It's just what I said before, but you seem to be doing okay.
She smiles back and deadtimes.

2009-08-15, 01:24 AM
Chases Jack and deadtimes.

Chas the mage
2009-08-15, 05:46 PM
Chas is here.
Richard is here.
Suitman is in a shady corner.

2009-08-15, 05:49 PM
Renata Heinz (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showpost.php?p=6727448&postcount=189) sits, wearing an army jacket over her normal clothes, quivering slightly and looking around frequently.

Chas the mage
2009-08-15, 05:51 PM
Chas pulls out a cigarette, and then glances at this reneta character.

Richard is drinking elven wine. he seems slightly... stressed.

2009-08-15, 06:44 PM
Riki is here, and waves at Renata.
Hello new girl. You doing okay?

2009-08-15, 06:46 PM
She jumps a little at the wave. Skittish, I guess.
Y-yeah, I'm fine. Her chrome (CHROME?!) teeth flash.

2009-08-15, 06:50 PM
If you say so. Nice teeth. I'm Riki, by the way.
She walks over to Renata's table/bar/corner

2009-08-15, 06:53 PM
I'm Renata. Heinz.

Chas the mage
2009-08-15, 06:55 PM
Chas, Richard, and suitman are still here.

2009-08-15, 06:59 PM
She hadn't thought that.
Riki Li'Anodel. Nice to meet you.
She nods at Renata.

2009-08-15, 07:03 PM
She nods back, then fishes a wallety-thingy out of her jacket.
Er---I gotta ask, have you ever seen this woman?
She opens the wallet; inside is a picture of a woman who looks quite similar to herself, but with black hair and pale-green eyes. It is labeled "Renna Heinz".

2009-08-15, 07:04 PM
Sorry, no. Could I help find her?
((And her player has to go.:smallsigh: Sorry.))

Moofin Bard
2009-08-15, 07:21 PM
Mica holds back a chuckle.

When the man bursts through the door, Renata whips out her scoped pistol.
She holds it, quivering, for a moment or two after he's gone.

Richard looks over to renata
I don't have a problem with you shooting em' but the police do.

She puts the pistol away.
Just my jumpy reflexes. She sighs.

Mica chuckles softly to herself.
She's remembering being that jumpy when she was new to guns.
She turns back to Richard.
Anyway, if these are such bad people, how come people are rallying with them?

There are some people that hate feudalism and figure that an enemy of an enemy is a friend... theres some people that are marxist, theres some people that take their propaganda seriously...

Ah propaganda. Yes I'm very familiar with that. Where I'm from, no one can believe anything they hear on the news.
