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

    Cabin 5 - Maple 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.

    New cabins can be added as the plot demands it. Here is a list of unused tree names:

    Linden, Larch, Ash, Pine, Hickory, Poplar, Magnolia, Olive, Rowan, Fir, Spruce, Holly, Cottonwood, Cypress, Hemlock, Teak, Ebony, Pear, Fig, Date, Mahogany, Palm, Lime, Acadia, Gumbo Limbo…


    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.

    [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.

    [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.

    Workshop: A well built cabin designed by Reelshka, containing nothing at present but the Mainframe installation. It is locked.

    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.




    About the Drones Mk 2:
    Spoiler
    Show
    In other news, the drones are back at GLoG.
    • Drones are NPCs who can be played by anyone, within the guidelines below
    • Their Primary Function is member safety
    • They no longer have teleport beams or alignment scanners
    • They do have stun beams and the ability to record what's going on around them
    • They follow orders, unless those orders conflict with their Primary Function
    • There are only 10-12 in operation at any one time
    • They can be destroyed, but if so, they'll be restored from backup
    • A few have been supplied with medical programming, and thus can be godmodded for infirmary duties.
    • Sadly, they have no cake fixation. Sunny arrived after the Top Secret Cake Baking Kitchen had been abandoned.
    • They speak in DarkOrange FixedSys




    (Sadly, the drones were removed for IC reasons. If someone wants them back, they'll need to build new ones.)

    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.

    Perhaps sensing the divine aura, perhaps just hearing unknown people in his woods, Toby Druid stealthily approaches Chris and Carrie.

    I don't mind water. I won't be crash-landing into it.
    And it's nice to see naturey things without being, y'know, cursed to kill it by touching it.

    Chris smiles, then he notices Toby sneaking up. His reaction is somewhat predictable; he forms an energy ball in his hand, mostly force. His attention snaps towards the source of the sneaking.

    Toby steps out from cover and looks at Carrie in an almost defiant manner. Chris and his energy ball are ignored, except the ground suddenly bucks beneath his feet, possibly throwing him to the ground.
    What are you doing here, Goddess? I hope you aren't meddling.
    He's younger than the Tobias they know, looking about 20 years old with cold blue eyes.

    Chris fell flat on his face, but he managed to get up on his own, without Carrie's help.

    "...You're Tobias? I thought..." Chris then looks back at Tobias. "She's right. She's my wife. She wanted to come visit with me." Of course, he leaves out the potential moving in.

    Lies. All Deities meddle. Every damned one. He turns his head and sniff's in Chris' direction. He's mortal. If he is truly your husband, you would have made him a God too, before he grows old and dies. Or is his Application still being processed?
    Without even waiting for an answer to that question, Toby narrows his eyes and glares at Carrie. You know who I am. I'm only famous among the Gods of my homeworld, so far. But I can't quite place who you are, Goddess.

    I am Carrion Grimm, Death Inaugurated. Goddess, yes, but more important to me is being a wife, a mother, and a friend.
    The question about my husband doesn't get an answer because, well, I don't feel like it.
    And if you'll allow me to share your bluntness, I was born mortal and I know firsthand what it means to have your life raped from under you and sold back to you by divine beings.
    Can you take my word for it? Or am I just another lying bitch of a death goddess and you'll have to see the scars to believe me?

    If I thought you were completely lying to me, we'd be fighting right now. Of course, if I considered you a threat to my family, you'd already be dead. His expression doesn't soften, but he doesn't look ready to attack either. There's something off, still. If you were from my world, I would have heard about you, newly Ascended or not. So how do you know my name?

    ... I knew a Tobias, one who wasn't paranoid and trigger-happy and, well, I'm starting to wonder how in the hell I made any mental connection between you and him besides "looks similar".
    ... Yes, it took that long to write that.

    Other bullcrap explanations included:
    Book of Names
    Talked to Fish (I'm sorry)
    Something with Scotland?
    She "Doesn't Know"

    I beg your pardon, but the older Tobias is just as paranoid. This one, when it comes to Gods, is just an Angry Young Man, with his fist in the air and his head in the sand.
    Hmph. Are you members?

    Old Toby has the McArthur hat and this one doesn't (I think) and therefore Old Toby is infinitely more likeable.
    Yes, I can be petty with hats.

    Toby relaxes at the mention of Quinn. Ah... yes, she is.

    Well, young Toby still has the same battered fedora. It can turn into the very same MacArthur hat, but Toby isn't wearing that gold-braided cap at the moment, because he doesn't need to take that role right now. Yay for psychomorphic artifacts?

    The Druid leans against a tree and smiles. Yeah. And, for a Goddess, your wife... seems pretty decent.
    Despite how it sounds, it's meant as a compliment.
