    In hiding. Always hiding.

    Default [Nexus] Outside XVIII

    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
    [Dead Pine Lake]
    Spoiler
    Show
    This lake lies in the middle of the forest. On the eastern shore, woodpeckers feast on the dead pines that give the lake its name. Sometimes one can find Lady Death here, the Aspect of Eve also known as The Grandmother, or Jedwiga.

    (Please PM happyturtle if you wish to interact with Jedwiga.)

    Spoiler
    Show


    [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.

    (Please PM happyturtle if you wish to interact with Gersemi.)


    [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.


    [Norosa, Great City of the Elves]
    Spoiler
    Show
    A Lawful Evil city with an incredibly strong military and a very charismatic leader (Archmage Tyrion Lannister). It has a few CG resisters, but, otherwise, it is a city of peace and law, despite its evil nature.


    [Brillian's Baneful Bestiary]
    Spoiler
    Show
    A secret series of caves where a mad scientist lives. A mad scientist who creates mutant attack creatures. These can be purchased for the right price.


    [Auxiliary MagCave]
    Spoiler
    Show

    A relic from the days of the Age of Apocalypse, this abandoned cavern was once used by the infamous cyborg Magtok as a back-up laboratory and underground fortress, should Calublufiok have ever stormed the primary MagCave.


    [The Katz Motel]
    Spoiler
    Show
    Located in the middle of Nowhere, our roadside motel is the only decent place for miles near the Taverna that has a bed. Run by a suave anthropomorphic cat, there is a strict No Dogs policy.


    A bellhop by the name of Bates is always ready to assist in carrying your luggage. Please ignore his constant mutterings about his mother. Other more unsavory employees can occasionally be found. Please try to avoid eye contact with them.

    We at the Katz Motel wish to ensure you have a splendid stay. Any inconvenience due to randomly locking doors, giant spiders, secret passages, vampires, creepy paintings, and the occasional possession and subsequent exorcism are incredibly rare. Just look at our complaint cards! Not a single one mentions dying horribly in their sleep or becoming food for the monster in the basement.

    And if you get bored, the owner will always be up for a game of sport, old boy.

    ((The Katz Motel is a horror filled place with the highest casualty rate of any motel in the Nexus area. Checking in is usually pretty easy and pleasant. Checking out is rare. Anyone can play the Motel and the NPCs within, free to invent their own horror. The NPCs within that can die usually only suffer death temporarily, the supernatural force causing the disturbances bringing them back to life for its own nefarious purposes. PCs get no benefit from this.))


    [The Troll Cave]
    Spoiler
    Show
    A cave in a craggy hill. The undergrowth outside is trampled completely flat, and there's not much wildlife. There's a burned patch where a fire is sometimes there. Inside are a few large caves, linked by surprisingly smooth tunnels that look like something big has been regularly pushing through them.


    [Blind Cat's Bluff]
    Spoiler
    Show
    A sheer cliff dropoff that travels straight down into the water, this is a favored point of people who commit suicide, romantics wanting to watch the sunset and anyone looking to get rid of evidence. The drop is pretty far and there are rocks at the bottom that spell almost certain doom, so watch your step.



    PM Whoever's posted the current Outside thread if you wish to add locations to Outside.

    It is not apparent, but he is struggling to control random lust brought on by a certain trickster bunny. The bard's moral concern for Darcy and his sense of reason keep the feeling under control, however.
    "It was beautiful..." she says. Beautiful isn't the right word, but it's the closest she can come, and she reaches out for Zanny's hand.

    Her geing covered with gore probably helps with the whole lust thing.

Not to mention the fact that most of the people have broken limbs and stuff, and he can at least help heal those.
    [Little Village]

    Nancy have gotten up, looking pretty angry all things considered. The other cultists are either crawling around on the ground moaning in pain or are still under Zanny's mind control, not doing anything special.

    "Do you even understand what you have done?! That was supposed to be for us and the village! Not you!" She screams.

    Zanny takes Darcy's hand, despite the gore. I mean, you can't be a serious ancient dragon if you're grossed out by a bit of blood n' guts, can you?

    The bard glares at Nancy, scowling and obviously not feeling in the least bit sorry for helping ruin the ceremony.

    "Some warning would have been good in advance. Like 'oh hey, by the way, when you start playing the song a lust monster will appear and try to have sex with you'. You know, just as a heads up."

    He lets go of the strings one by one, letting them off easy. But with final orders that should stay in their mind to "don't freak out and try to harm anyone".

    Darcy looks at Nancy. "Do you think I had a choice. He was calling me. I was the one he chose. That's why you brought us here."

    Then the awe and amazement of the vision fades enough for her to take stock of her situation. "I think I'm going to be sick."

    Kev starts healing the people he can. He'll butt in on the argument later if he feels like it, right now his groove is being disturbed by moans of pain'n'stuff and people with broken limbs, despite the claims of some heavy metal bands, aren't the most receptible possible audience.

    Nancy stares at Zanny and Darcy, breathing heavily, "All would have been fine if you hadn't started panicking and interrupted everything! You told me it wasn't your god! He couldn't have called for you! It's my god! Mine!" She continues to ramble, still very angry.

    "Now give me back my flute!" Nancy then demands, placing out her open palm.

    At the same time Kev is trying to heal the cultists that appear more confused and thankful rather then angry, still not really sure what is going on for some reason.

    "Wait, is it over already? It seemed so short..." a man in a goat mask asks Kev.

    Darcy starts trying to get all the gore off herself, and trying not to throw up. "I don't know. I don't have it."

    Her mood is split between grossed out, pissed off, and turned on, and if she wasn't covered in undead bits, she'd probably be dragging Zanny off into the shadows about now.

    In Zanny's head, the bunny is smoking a cigarette.

    "A monster?! Do you just judge by appearance? Didn't you see all the wonders it did? We would have been happy, everyone had been happy, you too. But instead you ruined it since you couldn't understand it..." Nancy shakes her head sadly "Do you know how many years it will take for the red moon to rise again? I will be a old grand mother by then!"

    As Kev is going around healing people, he can see the hooded man they saw earlier approach them, going away from the village.

    Once cleaned of the gore, Darcy steps closer, putting her arms around Zanny and looking up into his eyes. "Did you see it?" Her transcendent expression might indicate that she doesn't mean 'did you see me slice the abomination to ribbons'.

    [Zanny's Mind]

    "How about for a followup, we raze the village and drag Darcy off as plunder?"

    "When something is stitched up from the carcasses of dead things, you're generally allowed to judge from appearances and ask questions later. And it's not my problem."

    "No... I didn't. What happened?"

    Kev notices the hooded man but ignores him while he's concentrating on his job. After he's done with the people, he'll gather any strings left intact from the earlier attempt, unless someone attempts to speak to him.

    Zanny is a bit surprised at first, but then takes order of the situation. And by that, I mean returns the kiss with urgency. Trickster rabbits and lust rituals have been messing with his head, after all.

    Meanwhile the hooded man is surveying the area, looking at the various knocked out cultists and then shakes his head sadly and turns to Kev. "Would you be so nice to try to gather everyone stranger? Seems like we are skipping directly to dinner."

    "All right, I guess." Kev packs away the rest of his stuff, takes out a guitar and plays a melody commanding everyone nearby to gather up. It's resistable, but he's kind of tired and not on the best of moods so he doesn't bother weakening the compulsion as much as usual.

    Zanny nods. And turns into a dragon, as he's really used a bit too much magic to fly with song. >.> Luckily, the shapeshifting is precise enough that he doesn't crush anything. He'll let Darcy mount at the base of his neck, then fly off to some make out spot. Or something.

    "Take me to your lair?" Darcy suggests once they're airborne. "Woah, who did that to the moon?"

    Silly Darcy. Your plot clone is already gawking at the moon in another thread. >.<

    "I'm not sure. Who is eccentric but powerful enough to do it?"

    Zanny adjusts his course to his lair. The entrance is concealed, but once inside...

    Gold. Lots. And lots. Of gold.

    Though, apparently thinking something like this might happen ahead of time, there is a king-sized bed with lots of fluffy billows and blankets and curtains at the base of the hoard.

    Darcy gives barely a glance at the gold, and heads straight for the bed, shedding her mostly destroyed clothes as she goes.

    Zanny gives a dragonic grin and shifts back to human form. He too sheds his clothes as he follows after Darcy to the bed. He embraces her, and curtains!

    Curtains indeed. Guess Pinky's pretty chuffed.

    Afterwards, Darcy lays in his arms and tells him about the vision she saw, with all the zeal of a fervent missionary.

    Zanny, and by extension Pinkie, is very pleased.

    Afterward, the bard seems very interested in the vision. He muses, and tries to memorize everything she describes. Who knows, he might be able to replicate it with a song, though he doubts he can get it as strong as the lust god thing did.

    Just a bit of a headache.

    Melody starts to stand up looking over to Reinholdt. That's okay. The thugs looked to be the more important target, I suspect. Since they were the ones with guns.

    And what did you mean by "That's my story and I'm sticking to it."?
    she's a bit wobbly.

    "What do you think it means?" she asks, tracing lines along his torso.
