Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Let's move!

The men went about the business Luke had ordered, and did so very effectively.
He was pleased about that.

He knew that while he would’ve preferred the strength of a full military unit, they had a solid group of people who knew to keep their heads in the right place. At least, so far nobody had flung themselves into a panicked rage and did as they were told. Communication was a bit stiff, but what can you expect in wartime. Most soldiers weren’t great debaters.

As they covered their tracks, McGuinness returned to report on their surroundings. South seemed the most obvious choice; continue the mission. As Romo dealt out the weapons of the deceased, the Captain found himself a place where they all could hear him.

“Listen. I know our situation is grim, but I can only think of one logical course to follow. As we were told in the briefing: If this mission fails, then the folks back home could be in serious danger. We head south, towards the mountains. The castle should be there.”

He looked at them all, and thought of something to add.

“We can still do this. There is no way we will see those Nazis succeed, ok? Let’s move. And keep it quiet. We may need our ears to pick up on approaching enemies. Sgt Romo will assign your positions.”

He looked at the sarge and nodded, giving the man permission to take the stage.

Topic: Realms of Twilight -Winds and Sand
Subject: Argent hides a bit

Anxiously, Argent waited for the closest guard to come within reach. Hiding as best as he could behind the crates, he sought a good position for an unexpected strike. With a little bit of luck, they could silence the guard before he could raise an alarm.

(OOC: waiting for the guard to come close, then use Stunning Fist).

Moved your question to the Common Room, since the Q/A is for game-related Q/As.

As for drawing character sheets, what program do you intend to use?

Wow, more and more kids to join in the fun! Welcome after all this time then.

And don't be shy. People here don't judge others for feeling shy, weird or awkward, otherwise a lot of us wouldn't still be here.

So don't hesitate to make your first steps into the world of gaming. The Inn is a perfect place to do so.

Hope to see a higher post-count in the future.

Topic: D20 Modern Zombie Adventure
Subject: underwater

Go underwater. It's the year 2040 and zombies have been walking the earth for many years now. People live in secure clusters all over the earth's remote places. Your players happen to live in an underwater city/building-complex.

But, you know... zombies don't have to breathe, so they find the city eventually.

Now players won't only have to face zombies, but also risk drowning, flee a giant octopus and an army of undead anemone. The goal is to safely reach the surface world, and find a new place of shelter.

Topic: Realms of Twilight -Winds and Sand
Subject: Argent goes in

Argent assessed their possibilities quickly when Daleel took a long time to give any sign of life. He didn't want to use blunt force to make their way into the building, but they had to get in.

Fortunately, the rogue emerged in one piece, and as it seems he had not yet been discovered.

Argent pressed past him and whispered: "We should use the advantage of surprise to spring the guards rather than let them have the initiative of raising back-up."

In any case, he positioned himself in as much a concealed position as he could find. Doing his best to remain silent and unseen he tried to evaluate their chances.

Post #1 is in!

I think this covering tracks thing doesn't have to take up too much time.

Do we have a map, or directions in any way to find our position and the way to go?

Topic: Weird War II
Subject: Luke Edintore... Captain and in charge... now what?

Landing a chute was not one of Luke’s mayor thrills in life. In fact, he never liked jumping out of planes. He did like following orders, and making sure the Germans were kept at bay. And if following orders meant jumping from a plane… hey, what can you do?

But the sight of treetops rushing closer made him swallow quite hard. The few men who made it out of the airplane alive had already disappeared in the forest below. Holding on to the ropes of the chute tightly he kicked at the top of a great pine to push himself away from a deadly impact. The chute scraped over the treetop, tore and he went down fast.
He realized that he was about to hit the ground when branches no longer struck his descending body. In an effort to save himself from a fatal crash he curled into a ball as best he could, when all of a sudden he was jerked back up. The parachute had been caught by a branch, and he was hanging just above ground level.

Moments later he was loose and about, scanning the area for other survivors. He walked into a soldier just a heartbeat later. The man’s chute hadn’t even opened and he had apparently bludgeoned into the roots of a mighty tree.
Up ahead he heard groans and footsteps and noted the silhouettes of a few soldiers from his unit. He recognized one who was standing close. People called the man ‘Doc’.

Luke quickly identified the rest of the men that had made it. Sgt Romo was there, and the captain silently thanked God for that. They would certainly need the man, not in the least for his German looks. They were here with a mission to complete, but utterly lost. Asking directions with his own Italian-American persona would certainly lead to silly situations. IF they were even going to find somebody to ask directions in this German wilderness.

Brutal was standing close to Romo, a man who certainly deserved his title, Luke knew. He had heard rumours of the man’s prowess and knew he was going to be a valuable asset of the team. Would he himself? Being Captain was all good as long as there was somebody else to listen to. With Major Banks gone up in smoke, he was to control this heap of left-overs.

He noted only one private left. That was a big setback. Luckily McGuiness was one of the best shots in the unit. The captain certainly knew to value this man’s presence. He moved closer to cut the man loose from his parachute.

When McGuiness was freed the captain picked up the carbine and ammo belt from the dead trooper.
He looked at the medic. “It’s Doc, right? Do you know how to use this?”
He held up the carbine.
The man looked around at the few survivors, “Yeah, I can point and shoot.”
Tossing the carbine and ammo belt to Jack the Captain muttered, “Good, you’re back in the infantry, you just happen to be able to plug the holes in ours guys.”

He knew they couldn’t waste too much time, so addressed all of the men assembled.

“We should move. I don’t want any Nazi’s to know we’re here though. Romo and Brutal, snatch those chutes from the trees. Doc and I will find some branches and leaves to cover them with. McGuiness, find a high tree to climb and find out what you can about our position.”

“Let’s hurry, people!”

(OOC: I don’t assume there is any chance any of us saw which way the castle is?)

Topic: Pathfinder - How to be a good GM
Subject: also

What helps in making an encounter interesting is basing it on the experiences the players have had before.

If they have encountered goblins before, and think they are an easy fight, let hem encounter goblins again, but with a little twist (add class levels or give them some neat combat maneuver that will scare your players again. Next time, they won't take a goblin fight for granted.

Subject: tough one for Argent

"If the cargo we need to secure is indeed a group of slaves, then I think perhaps we might fail in keeping them under control once we freed them."

It was about all the implication he needed to give, he reasoned. Echario seemed like a sharp enough mind to understand the true meaning behind his words.

"Don't you think so?"

Subject: A thought in Argent's head

Argent stopped as Echo spoke his thoughts.

"Wait," he said, "are you saying you think the merchandise is humanoid trafficking? If so, we have no time to lose!"

This was what he had been waiting for, a legitimate reason to break into the building.

"Let's go." he stated, and accompanied the rest to the back door.

Topic: Realms of Twilight -Winds and Sand
Subject: it seems Argent is at the end of his push

Argent knew by the man's reaction that they were not going to get any more information at this point. He had fallen for their ruse, the monk assumed, and now it was time to leave.

"We thank you for the information, sir. We'll keep it in mind, right?" He looked at his brother, who was still absent(minded).

With a friendly nod to the man behind the desk he departed. Outside, however, he seemed less eager to leave the storage facility behind.

"Alright guys," he whispered when they were away from the door, "there is something strange going on inside that warehouse. I say we find another way in. Any suggestions?"

Topic: Robin Hood and Friar Tuck, Zombie Killers
Subject: yes, the scripture

Tuck ponders over Will’s last question.

“We should head back to my studies. I think I have an old tome there that might help. The Bishop of Hereford is looking to have it banned, thinking it is not a true religious scripture. The answer might be in there.”

They hasten back to the small church. As they pass through town, more wandering dead are seen, some of them half eaten away by time. It appears many of the graveyard inhabitants have woken with an extreme appetite.

Will and Tuck reach the church safely, but not without attracting the attention of at least a few undead. As the young man bars the door, Tuck runs into his study, where he starts rummaging through his books like a man possessed. After a few minutes he holds up a very old, thin book bound in crumbling leather. Faded golden letters reveal the title to be “The Gospel of George, a ten step guide to surviving the Apocalypse”.

“It’s never been proven to be genuine, but it tells of the visions by a man named George Arom Ero. Apparently he was visited by an Angel who left him with revealing insight after George gave him too much brandy.”

He starts flipping through the pages, when a solid pounding on the door begins. The low wailings of the undead sound through the church, chilling the monk’s blood. But at last he finds what he is looking for.

“Here! George speaks of a special weapon that will ensure survival in times of the walking dead. … and ye shall wield the Saw of Chains, and ye shall hack with it through bones, and ye should pull first the cord, and let holy wrath descend upon ye blood craving spooks.
