    In hiding. Always hiding.

    Default Outside V: More civilized than Inside

    This place is just as it sounds. It's outside.
    Want a change of scenery? Go outside.
    Always wanted to visit the beach? Come outside.
    Looking to have a climatic fight on clifftops? Attempt outside.
    Secret meetings being held where there's no cameras? Try outside.
    Want an ambush without nasty base defenses? Yep. Outside.

    Any and all are welcome here. There are no NPCs unless you bring them in. The major exception is the creepy eyed squirrel. The creepy eyed squirrel does not interfere with anyone. The creepy eyed squirrel is everywhere outside. The creepy eyed squirrel is always watching. The creepy eyed squirrel never sleeps. The creepy eyed squirrel can not be damaged, manipulated, or killed by anyone. The creepy eyed squirrel will eat anyone's very being who attempts to do so. Anyone can god-mode the creepy eyed squirrel. You may pet the creepy eyed squirrel at your own risk.

    Other NPCs currently include:
    The menacing crabs. These intimidating creatures are usually found by the shore.
    The non-existant duck. You'll miss every time you shoot at it.

    There is very little you can't do outside. However, like always, please follow the forum rules and general rules of conduct. Private conversations can be held outside. If it seems like a private (secret) conversation, please respect that. Those having such a conversation should do their best to indicate it as such. Otherwise, other characters may stumble upon you. Those desiring to spy in on private conversations should first PM those holding the private conversation, more out of courtesy than anything else.

    There are many areas outside, and people can be in multiple places outside. In order to keep areas outside separated so there's no confusion, consider bolding your outside location at the start of each of your posts, like so:

    The Fields

    Reinholdt sets up various targets and practices his sharpshooting. All these events recently has made him a bit rusty. To his left, he notes the creepy eyed squirrel. Giving him the heebie-jeebies, Reinholdt decides to head somewhere else.
    The Cliffside

    Calublufiok broods over his latest scheme as he flies over the cliffs. The creepy eyed squirrel is watching him again. He finds occasionally landing and telling the creepy eyed squirrel his plans helps him find holes in his plotting.
    Note Reinholdt and Calublufiok do not interact because they are in different areas outside. They could interact, if Reinholdt moves to the cliffside. Of course, various things like telepathy help bypass this. Also, please note outside has no major buildings, though minor ones crop up from time to time.

    And most importantly, enjoy outside. That's what this is all about.

    Outside now contains various Outside locations! Such as...
    Spoiler
    Show
    [Greensbrook]
    Spoiler
    Show

    A peaceful farming village overseen by John De Metz. Formerly home to Rocky the Render. Notable families included the Bobrow and Giles families.


    [The Islands]
    Spoiler
    Show

    An island cluster forms an archipelago along the coast. Some of the islands are settled, some not, but most are at least occasionally visited by the fishermen who work these waters.


    [Gersemi's Island]
    Spoiler
    Show

    Gersemi the seighkona lives on a small island in the archipelago with a single hut and a few sheep. Inside the hut, there is a single room, and a fireplace. A loom rests in one corner.


    [Redbrick Falls]
    Spoiler
    Show

    A mountainous, cliffy region with a prominent waterfall. A large quarry once was worked in these cliffs. Now, only a few scattered villages and solitary dwellings remain.


    [Whitemount]
    Spoiler
    Show

    A rather large town with some scattered farms and the seat of a duchy.



    PM Reinholdt if you wish to add locations to Outside.

    Special: Reinholdt will update the Outside threads and post new ones when it is time. Please don't post a new thread without his permission or he is away for an extended period of time.
    Thank you.

    The "Deacon" smirks at the mention of a cult. He doesn't make a witty comeback or anything, and makes a simple motion with his hand.
    The Gazebo begins to upend, attempting to dump the couple out onto the ground below. The "Deacon" takes hold of the altar to keep from sliding off himself.

    It is not true though. I was angry because you thought you are the only person to go through that. Not because I thought you tortured me at some point.

    I know I'm not the only one to go through that. I hurt other people! So go find one of them to help. She turns and starts to run through the woods away from him. Not really paying attention to where she is going, probably going to end up lost. Maybe.

    Layla shrieks as her feet go out from under her, and she clutches wildly for something to hold onto. Oh look - the altar. Right next to the deacon - who she tries to kick. "What is the matter with you?! Make this thing stop!"

    She glares at him. I wanted to come out here, have a nice walk. Instead we walk into a trap. You use those monsters to threaten me. I want to go back to get away from you. She goes to shove him out of the way and head back.

    Chapel of Gazebthulhu
    So, that means three people are hanging from an altar inside some sort of animated gazebo. You have to give the architects of this place some credit, they make sturdy altars.

    The "Deacon" smirks at Layla, obviously proud of himself and his gazebo behemoth. "Now, why would I stop it? If I do that, then there wouldn't be something to kill you after your husband inevitably shoots me."

    The Gazebo starts shaking violently. It obviously doesn't want these people inside it anymore.

    "I don't have to shoot you. I just want to." Shooting the deacon is dropped in favor of holding onto the altar with both arms.

    Wedding Chapel-thing
    Layla's eyes go wide and she swings a fist at the deacon's face. "Don't you EVER threaten my husband again!" Whether she hits or not, she looks down at the ground and gauges the distance. "Jacky - let go! Let's get outta here!" Following her own advice, Layla releases her hold on the altar. She falls a few feet until her feet hit the gazebo railing. Quickly bending to grab ahold of the rail, she swings herself down...dangles...and drops to the ground below. She rolls with it, leaving a dirt mark on her shoulder - but ends up unharmed as she gets to her feet.

    Jack growls at the Deacon. "You're lucky that it's my wedding day and I'm feeling charitable, or I would shoot you." Letting go, Jack slides down feet first, hitting the railing and leaping off to land on the ground below, rolling to ease the fall. That suit gets dirtied, but he's okay.

    The "Deacon" does not take the punch well, and loses his grip on the altar. He drops a few feet, before catching himself on the railing. The man grumbles, checking to make sure his nose isn't bleeding or anything with his free hand.

    The couple may notice that the Gazebo has sprouted large eyes on the front, a pair of giant white orbs with a single black dot in the middle of each that glare angrily at the ground below. Also, the Gazebo itself seems to just be the head of a much larger being, as some sort of wooden body is rising up out of the ground beneath it. The clawed arms are free of the ground, and the Gazebo tries to swing the splintery fists at Jack and Layla.

    Jack tries to get Layla down to avoid the wings of the fists. He also lifts the pistol and tries to shoot one of the black dots of the eyes.

    And reaching into the cleavage of her dress, Layla draws her revolver (forgot about that, didn't ya?!) and shoots at the other eye as she ducks and dodges the arms. "Ya know - fire would be...great right now! Or running." Layla beams a grin. "A wedding to remember, Jacky - that's for sure!"

    Well, now there's a Gazebo with two bullets stuck in its eyes. The monster pauses for a moment between each shot, before continuing to smash the ground with its fists. It has risen a few more feet out of the ground, the rest of the gangly wooden torso now sticking out of the ground.

    Meanwhile, the "Deacon" is still hanging onto the railing, swinging around as the Gazebo shakes and jerks.

    Layla gets an idea! Reaching over, she plucks the flask she bought Jack from his breast pocket. And also the lighter he always carries. Grinning, she runs RIGHT up to the gazebo monster, takes a swig of liquor, and proceeds to turn her mouth into a blowtorch as she raises the lighter and spits the alcohol at the wooden body.

    Chapel of the Burning Effigy Gazebo

    Oh, that does it. The Gazebo roars its screechy, haunting, cracking roar again, and swings its "head" back violently. This sends the false Deacon flying back up into the beast's "head," and he keeps himself from flying further by grabbing onto the altar again.
    The flames arc up the Gazebo's torso, scorching the wooden frame. The beast decides to skip the rest of dramatic "rising out of the ground" thing, and instead just rips its legs up out of the earth. This is probably going to cause some problems for the bride standing down below.
