    Each cabin has rooms A-D. The main lodge has plenty of bunk space, but there are no separate rooms.

    Cabin 5 is reserved for visitors who do not want to stay at the lodge. They are requested to check in at the main lodge, where any member can give them permission to stay for a few days. Longer than that, and unless they are in need, they would be requested to either join or move to their own place or one of the local inns.


    Description of the new GLoG setting:
    Spoiler
    Show
    After the original GLoG building was destroyed by an army of catpeople, the survivors took out a mortgage and purchased Phoenix Lake Campground. Facilities include the main lodge house, a bathhouse with separate male and female sections, a stable (no horses present), various picnic shelters, and a few scattered cabins. It's set in the foothills of the Acro mountains, and mainly surrounded by woods. There are many hiking trails nearby leading to mountaintop vistas, waterfalls, seacoves, and various other locations, both within this thread, and in the Outside thread. The campground is also within easy walking distance of the Taverna Generica and the city of Inside.

    At the lake, there is a small dock with a little shed nearby where a few canoes and paddleboats are stored. (They probably should be inspected first before trying to put them in the water.) The swimming area has a GIANT slide and a rope swing. Because GIANT slides and rope swings are awesome. There is also a playground under the trees, set back from the lake somewhat, and a set of horseshoe pits.

    Having been built on a Generic Ancient Burial Ground, Phoenix Lake Campground is haunted by various ghosts. They are generally harmless, and for the most part glad to have some company, though pranks and hijinks may occur. Ghosts, like the drones of old, can be NPC'd by anyone. They tend to speak in Gray.

    Speaking of drones, there are very few remaining, all of which are the basic hospitality drones rather than the war-ready Security drones. They can still be NPC'd by anyone, but there should never be more than one per player in the area. No more drone swarming.

    South, by Neon Knight:
    Spoiler
    Show
    [Lake, Southern Shores]

    Our descriptive tour starts here, because NK has jurisdiction here.

    The southern shore is a gentle slope descending into the waters of the lake, sandy here and there, and perfect for waders and swimmers. There are no high banks along the water, which is normally quite pleasant. Being winter, of course, it is rather chilly. The foliage around the lake isn't prickly or harsh at all, and a free trees provide shade for those inclined to lounge nearby.

    [South Meadow]

    Immediately south of the central shoreline is a rather nice meadow. Although winter has robbed it of some joy and vitality, [South Meadow] will be a lovely spot for picnics when warmth returns, with soft grass, pretty blooms, and an arrangement of surrounding trees that lets in just enough wind to cool you off in the summer but blocks enough so that the windchill doesn't freeze you.

    [South Forest]

    As the tree line thickens, conifers and deciduous trees grow in thick clumps, making a patchy canopy overhead. Hiking trails wind through it here and there, but it is mostly overgrown; the southern woods are a more remote and neglected part of the campground.

    The bare wooden limbs of the deciduous trees contrast sharply with the continued vitality and life of the firs and other conifers. The elevation gently slopes up the deeper south you go, wit forested hills rising and eventually the great peaks of the mountains forming the southern part of the valley.


    North, by EleventhHour:
    Spoiler
    Show
    [Once in a lifetime, you get a new beginning]

    GLoG, was blown apart and torn down, those who visited it mourned the loss of such an extravagant building, and for the loss of a landmark they grew up with. When they heard word of it being rebuilt, from almost the ground, people came to see, and to work. The following is an excerpt from a journal of a woman who came to see the new place...

    On the northern shores of the lake, 'tis easy to see why they pick such a place. To the south it one range of mountains, sandy beaches and old forgotten trails, on the north side, things are rockier. For example, even as I write this, I stand on the head of a short cliffside some six feet above the glistening blue waters, well they are frozen over with ice at the moment, glittering in the sun, but I can imagine the summer view...

    To look around, turning in an eastward fasion, it's easiest to notice the grey mountain peak of the beginning of the northern range, the massive waterfall feeding the lake shining white even from here, there are the forested groves and the low growing holly bushes, some dead for the winter, others still a vibrant green as thier sort dictates. To the north, I will have to travel through the woods, to be looking upon the sights. Coming back 'round to the west, you can see the battered place of old, where a graveyard must have stood, some pitted old pillars and laystones of granite grown over with moss, and pushed aside by saplings.

    Upon starting the climb up the hillsides about the mountainous locale, I noticed that where some rockslides had taken the face away from the lower mountain revealing black, midnight cracks into the roots of the world, leading who knows where, and sealed for who knows how long. Ah! I have reached a merry pinnacle, about halfway up those imposing peaks. Oh, 'tis cold, certainly, but any who dare venture up this far are surely in for a treat of wonder. Looking down across the forest, you can see the blackened trees to the west, and the breaks in the treeline where the cabins and lodges stand empty, with the little cleared roads drawing snaked pathes between them.

    Up here, you can taste the frigid air, and only the lowest growing bushes are able to grow at all. Miraculously, when I stopped in a little enclave on the side of the hill, heading back down now, there were blueberries growing! In the middle of winter, no less! Unfortunately, there was a storm brewing, and I had no time to stop and wait. One thing did catch my eye though, on the way down, that somehow I couldn't see from the peak, and I have yet to drop by the main lodge itself to see, but from here I could see a tree, massive beyond reason of twisted branches and a trunk easily as large as a house, I would say it was a blue ash, but they couldn't possibly grow so tall...


    Island: (by Rebonack)
    Spoiler
    Show
    In the midst of the lake there is a small island. Getting here is a bit of a swim unless other means of transportation are available.

    It's generally sandy with more than a few alder trees quite happy to take advantage of the water. Everything is powdered with a light application of snow, disturbed by only the occasional bird footprints. Isn't exactly the sort of location large animals come to.

    The place is largely wooded with the occasional granite boulder sticking out of the snow, strange swirling petroglyphs etched into them. And in the middle of the island is a structure of decent size. A low, squat building of stacked stones. Looks to be a crypt of some kind.

    Should one step into the barrow...

    It's dark inside. And kinda wet. The walls are carved with the same odd swirling sigils that were found on several of the stones outside. In the middle of the ruin lies a huge stone table, ancient glyphs ringing the edge. The slab appears to have broken ages ago, split right down the middle. Several windows allow sunlight to filter in, causing the various stone to cast long shadows.

    Or at least they do when the skylights aren't covered in snow.



    Buildings:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Main Lodge: This large building contains an industrial kitchen with a cafeteria style serving area, and an open space that was once used as the dining hall. The space is warmed by a massive fireplace. Bunk beds are lined up on one end of the hall, opposite the kitchen, and a few comfy chairs and sofas are beginning to appear around the fireplace as they are procured. The building itself is made of stone.

    Bathhouse: This building is divided into the men's and women's bathhouses, with entrances at either end. It has shower stalls, a line of sinks, and toilet stalls in each. By now, the shower curtains have been replaced and the whole area has been scrubbed to cleanliness and usability.

    Cabins: Each cabin has 4 rooms, each with shelves and space for three bunk beds. The ones nearest to the lodge have been cleaned out and are habitable, though they lack furniture and any source of heat.

    Infirmary:
    Spoiler
    Show
    The outside of the infirmary looks just like all the rest of the buildings. Nothing distinguishes it at all.

    But inside, everything is white, with silver highlighting. Even though it doesn't seem possible, when looking from outside, sunlight filters inside. Giving the place a warm feeling with natural light.

    A soft, soothing music filters through the whole building and words can barely be heard saying words of healing and comfort, like: "You are going to be okay." "We'll take care of you." "You are dear to us." and so on.

    Each room is walled off for a limited amount of privacy, because the pixies know that humans seem to need this. Strange. But it is limited. There are no doors.

    Kinda looks like this:
    ______________________________________
    |___/___/___/___/___/___/___/___/___/___|
    |__/___/___/___/___/___/___/___/___/___/|
    |__________________________________---|
    |_\___\___\___\___\___\___\___\___\___\_|
    |__\___\___\___\___\___\___\___\___\___\|


    Except the angles are more severe, so that people on the other side of the hall can't see into anyone's room. Only someone intentionally looking in, can see you.

    There is also a small living area in the back which includes a small kitchen and bedroom among a few other things.

    Attention villains:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Conflict is great! It's the heart of any story, and there isn't much to roleplay without it. However, as a player to player courtesy, please check in with the players who are active at any given time before launching an attack. Not everyone wants to roleplay combat scenes, and sometimes there are other things going on that players don't want to interrupt for a random fight. Either a PM/IM to players, a short post in thread to say ((Mind if I introduce a villain here?)) or a longer post in the OOC thread if it's a larger plot is appreciated.

    Also, please don't plan any villainy that will result in destroying the base or having the same effect (poisoning the lake, burning down the forest, etc.)

    Base Defences:
    Spoiler
    Show
    So Khiansa goes around the grounds, casting alarm spells around the surrounding woods, and wards against the weaker classes of undead, devil or demon (eg. Those least likely to be PCs ), weak wards to limit the strength of destructive magic, and other such weak fields of protection, in order to make things a bit safer in general, before he can eventually go back over and make stronger, more selective wards.
    After setting up the wards, he'll start the considerably harder work of magically fortifying the buildings themselves, especially the lodge, weaving spells of protection and strength in between and through the building materials, so that they may better withstand attack.


    NB: As part of a continuing effort to move away from DnD and become more freeform, there is no longer any inbuilt organizational capability of 'alignment detection'. Individual PCs may or may not have this ability.

    So, obviously, for the sake of the other not being eaten by the Grignuppigkn, they need to fight each other to the death. Makes perfect sense.

    Toby, the ten-year-old one, wanders around camp, looking for Nicola. Though anyone else can speak to him, as I haven't roleplayed the 'kid' in quite some time.
    Repost from the last thread. Sorry, I hadn't realized it'd gone over 50 pages.

    In front of the Infirmary

    Since it's a new thread, it might be a good idea to reintroduce these two sisters.
    The taller and more agile one, who is wearing a necklace, and wielding a spear and a tribal shield, is named Ishtaroth. The other, who has a Ship's Helm as a shield, and a sword which has her sister's blood on it, and is wearing a tunic and sandals, is named Ariana. They are standing inside of a circle they drew in the dirt, which they both claimed in the name of their goddesses.

    "Not as crazy as a filthy dra-...-lizard," grumbles Ariana, changing what she was going to say at the last moment.

    "Don't worry, sister. I'll kill him after I kill you."


    ((He can 'just happen' to wander towards the infirmary, and notice these two and the dragon-man-dude.))

    Actually, scratch that. I'm about to have a seperate villain in the camp, and I typically don't like to roleplay two of my characters in the same location unless it's for plot advancement.

    Speaking of that villain, perched in the branches of the tree west of camp can be found Jack Empty. For those of you who weren't here for his little rampage a while ago, he's a grey man, with a grey suit, grey hair, and evil little grey eyes. At his side is a white-hilted sword in a purple sheath.

    Also, naturally, a grin that'll put a curl in your toes and a rot in your teeth.

    He is mostly hidden by the leaves, watching the camp steadily.

    Does Jack have a grey smell? Or even a smell at all? Tobias is in the infirmary watching over the girls, but he brought in a wolf pack which is currently scattered around the woods outside the camp.

    But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"

    No scent other than a faint bit of blood. And dang, really? Tobias is with the girls? Cause that just won't do.

    Ah, wait, I'm being rude. Before I more than likely start some sort of fight, am I going to be interrupting anything?

    Tobias and Quinn have all the girls together in the infirmary, where they are confined until Anshu and Cerise come to pick their kids up. Apart from waiting to have very strong words with Anshu and Cerise, Toby isn't doing anything right now.
    However, I think there are some deadtimed combatants in front of the infirmary.

    Well, I'll be sure to leave them to their fight. I mean, unless their both 'good' people. They'll probably go after Jack too.

    The hollow man flits down from the tree, flattening himself against a cabin at the edge of camp.

    Is anyone else out in the immediate open that you know of, or shall Jack walk straight into camp?

    That would probably just devolve into a free-for-all, not a team-up.

    And I guess Reelshka's in the open.

    Jack teleports out, and will reappear a couple minutes later, holding a bouqet of flowers. He approaches Reelshka, narrowing his smile to make him look less... detestable.

    His voice is as smooth as honey. "Hello ma'am. I was told to deliver some flowers to a..." He pauses, glancing at the bouqet. "Hm. No nametag. Well, my shop said the recipient was a young cyborg girl? Do you know anyone like that?"

    Jack sighs. "Oh well. Hm. Do you know any druids around here then? The druid is supposed to be related to the cyborg somehow, he's the one who asked for the flowers."

    Grin grows just a tad wider. Reelshka may get a feeling of... wrongness about the man. But other than that, he seems relatively normal. "I believe the druid's name was Tobias?"

    Nope, never heard of him. She hasn't talked to many people here. And right now she's kind of looking for an excuse to end this conversation.

    Grin recedes. "Damn. Well, thanks anyway. I'll just take a look around." He walks off, heading towards the main cabin.

    He grumbles quietly on the way, "Maybe I'll just take her along. Probably still work..."

    Once he reaches the main cabin, he'll give a sound knock on the door.

The other, who has a Ship's Helm as a shield, and a sword which has her sister's blood on it, and is wearing a tunic and sandals, is named Ariana. They are standing inside of a circle they drew in the dirt, which they both claimed in the name of their goddesses.

    "Not as crazy as a filthy dra-...-lizard," grumbles Ariana, changing what she was going to say at the last moment.

    "Don't worry, sister. I'll kill him after I kill you."


    ((He can 'just happen' to wander towards the infirmary, and notice these two and the dragon-man-dude.))
    Garth growls and wishes to bash his head into the wall or some such thing but restrains himself. He takes a deep breath to calm himself down again. He's also forgotten to go and get a new shirt back on so he's still shirtless.

    He looks between the two sisters and shakes his head. " I have a feeling I'm going to regret this but isn't there any other way to settle this without killing each other? " Garth asks them somewhat in desperation. " And please don't try to kill me because I don't want to have to hurt you. "
    "Insert some witty comment here"

    Jack frowns. It would appear there's no one in the main cabin. The hollow man will circle the building, looking in the windows, before moving on to the second biggest building: the infirmary. He peeks in a window, making sure to teleport away the millisecond anyone sees him there, so that all that's noticed is a faint flicker in the air. What does he see?

    He sees Tobias' boot coming at him through the open window. After he teleports away, the Druid shouts. I have ears, you idiot. Did you think I wouldn't hear your voice saying my name?
    "There are books so alive that you're always afraid that while you weren't reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river;
    while you went on living, it went on living too, and like a river moved on and moved away.
    No one has stepped twice into the same river.
    But did anyone ever step twice into the same book?"

    Jack is already standing behind him, inside the infirmary. "No, that's not it at all. I just didn't think you'd be paying that much attention."

    Jack's grin switches to smirk mode. "Well, now that stealth is out the window," No pun intended, "You up for another round of fisticuffs? Or shall I simply cut to the chase and steal away one of your kids?"

    I'm not enough of a stupid do-gooder to want to fight you just because you're Evil. But I will happily kick your *ss all over this camp if you touch any of these kids. They are under my protection, so you're just going to have to find other ones somewhere else. He smirks back at him. By the way, I fixed my jaw. How's your eye?

    Jack prods the fresh optical sensor. "Fine, thanks. Seems we both have pretty competent healers, eh?"

    The hollow man takes a seat in a wooden chair, staring at Toby. "Well, before we get around to beating the hell out of eachother over some stupid kids, I was curious about something. Psychopath to psychopath,"

    He quirks an eyebrow. "How do you sleep at night?" His tone isn't mocking at all. It's entirely serious, surprisingly.

    Toby pauses, and gives serious thought to that before returning an honest answer. After all, there is, if not respect, at least some level of understanding between them. I don't. I stay awake for days on end before I'm too exhausted to dream. I take medication, on occasion.

    However, he has to deadtime because his player has somewhere else to be...

    Well, if Jack does want to interact with someone, there's someone with a wide-brimmed hat, white hair, and a wolf tail, currently looking around.

    Reelshka has moved as far away from Jack as possible and is drawing a squirrel sitting on a nearby tree.

    All right, then. She might see the aforementioned man walking towards her. "Hello, there."

    Um, hello. Reelshka's eyes immediately move to the wolf tail.

    The man notices her attention on the wolf tail, but doesn't comment. "Have you seen a young woman with red fox ears and a tail around here?"

    No, I don't think so. What's her name? The goblin responds.
