Awaiting

[Wehnimer's, Penna St.]

The distant sounds of the merchants and tradesmen around the shops to the west are muted here. The cracked pavement, scattered cobblestones, and dirt drainage ditches along the side of the road form a not-so-gradual transition between the busier avenues of the main bazaar and the less frequented, humbler, and more unsavory sections of the town. You also see the Chamorr disk, a cheery aurora spirit that is flying around, the Razanetika disk, the icy blue Kobane disk, a green-eyed grey cat, a sapphire-eyed pale golden margay, a gypsy fortuneteller, a black-toed saddleback foxhound, the Regwen disk, the Umbazi disk and a low stone gate.

Also here: Lyrna, Event Planner Leafiara, Lord Chamorr, Maags, Pukk, Bernadette, High Lord Kobane, High Lady Razanetika, Mnar, Leifa, Lady Regwen, Lord Umbazi, Barzillia, Grand Lady Roelaren, Sir Cryheart

Leafiara amusedly says, "Ahh, that's where everyone is."

Speaking quietly to Razanetika, Kobane says, "Citrus-y."

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "I was following the tinkling sounds of Shiny's armor."

Speaking to Chamorr, Maags says, "Well what."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Chamorr says, "Well, she also tole me Id' be rich an famous."

Speaking to Shinann, Maags exclaims, "Yous off duties!"

Bernadette softly says, "Ahh."

Speaking incredulously to Maags, Leafiara asks, "Is she ever?"

Speaking heartily to Maags, Chamorr says, "Sooo, lotsa luck."

Speaking to Chamorr, Maags states, "I alreadies am."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Chamorr says, "Nah ah."

Cryheart says, "Winter is almost upon us."

Puptilian gazes up into the heavens.

Puptilian yells, "Late as always!"

Speaking to Leafiara, Puptilian says, "You know it's true."

Speaking amusedly to Puptilian, Leafiara says, "That's why it's funny."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags says, "Somethin likes that."

Cryheart says, "Perhaps she would prefer a tart."

Leifa says, "Well, early for some...."

Pukk says, "I think Owlie should stay around the group tonight."

Maags says, "Cannot weat for the Solstice Tree."

Maags says, "Because ladder."

Chamorr heartily says, "Right."

Cryheart says, "We could toss ye up on the ladder."

Chamorr heartily says, "Ladders."

Leafiara interestedly asks, "A game of halfling tossing, you say?"

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags says, "Not if I toss yous first Sir Knight."

Lyrna says, "Silly."

Speaking playfully to Lyrna, Leafiara says, "You know you love it."

Maags says, "No no no the gnomes would be jealous."

Lyrna says, "Absolutely."

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "I think he had other things on his mind..."

Speaking heartily to Cryheart, Chamorr says, "Gotta watch dem haflins."

Speaking curiously to Pukk, Leafiara asks, "Like food?"

Pukk says, "Tarts."

Pukk says, "I'm sure."

Speaking sympathetically to Pukk, Leafiara says, "Makes sense. Tarts are pretty great."

Chamorr skips over to Maags merrily.

Chamorr falls over.

Cryheart says, "Tired out the giant."

Maags says, "Sugahless giant."

Chamorr heartily says, "Someday I learns how."

Speaking heartily to Leifa, Chamorr says, "Giants don skip, ya know."

Speaking to Leafiara, Puptilian says, "Late late late late."

Speaking to a gypsy fortuneteller, Maags asks, "Will the waylayer be arriving soonlies?"

Speaking to Puptilian, Pukk exclaims, "Puppy!"

Speaking to Maags, Regwen says, "Even she doesn't know."

Maags says, "Truth."

Pukk says, "All of the important people are here."

Pukk exclaims, "Puppy too!"

Lyrna says, "Foretelling only sees so far."

Umbazi says, "And even some unimportant ones."

Speaking skeptically to Pukk, Leafiara says, "But I don't see Gutstorm."

Speaking surprisedly to Leafiara, Pukk exclaims, "You're right!"

Speaking to a poofy piebald flop-eared kitten, Leafiara coos, "Look at the cutie."

Maags exclaims, "He is in a good mood for once!"

Cryheart says, "He is nae so cute after he has been to the Rift."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags says, "I kept him in his sling."

Cryheart says, "He gets a bit testy after being in the Rift."

Speaking curiously to a poofy piebald flop-eared kitten, Leafiara asks, "An adventuring kitty, huh?"

Speaking to Leafiara, Maags says, "He hates the Rift. Bites the knight everys time."

Cryheart says, "And brazen."

Maags says, "Well hates the Scatter."

Leafiara amusedly says, "Oh, that's too rich."

Maags says, "Rift depending."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Chamorr says, "No blame there."

Leafiara paces back and forth, muttering something about meetings.

Chamorr heartily says, "Soup sounds good."

Maags says, "I do not care for meetings in general."

Cryheart says, "Aye, hard for ye to stand still."

Speaking to Gutstorm, Leafiara declares, "Vengeance." [threw five snowballs at him]

Dwi heartily asks, "Buncha oldsters? It's tea time?"

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags adds, "And listen."

Umbazi says, "I'm not an oldster."

Speaking heartily to Dwi, Chamorr says, "I'm 14."

Maags says, "I am not old jus a prodigy."

Pukk arranges his posture and features in a skillful imitation of Leafiara!

Chamorr heartily says, "A myth."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags exclaims, "That is what I was told!"

Speaking to Pukk, Leafiara marvels, "That's pretty good!"

Maags pushes on Chamorr without much success.

Chamorr falls over.

Chamorr heartily says, "Ack."

Cryheart says, "Easier for giantkin to trip o'er halflings."

Speaking unconvincingly to Chamorr, Maags says, "We are sorries."

Cryheart says, "Unless they step on em."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Dwi says, "We should do da kobold trick."

Speaking amusedly to Lyrna, Leafiara says, "Well, even if nothing happens, at least we saw each other tonight."

Lyrna says, "I can wait around a while longer."

Speaking playfully to Puptilian, Pukk exclaims, "What? No, I won't kiss you!"

Speaking seductively to Puptilian, Pukk says, "Well if you really want me to."

Puptilian says, "No."

Speaking to Puptilian, Pukk says, "Your lips say no, your eyes say no. But your heart says."

Pukk turns an inquisitive ear toward Puptilian.

Pukk says, "Huh."

Pukk says, "It said no."

Pukk says, "Well, that was surprising."

Lyrna says, "Funny how that happens."

Speaking to Pukk, Puptilian asks, "I think Aatu is hungry. Want me to tell him to eat?"

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Dwi says, "My heart says thump."

Speaking to Puptilian, Pukk exclaims, "No, you may not eat Dwi!"

Speaking to a forest wolf, Pukk says, "She will give you a tummy ache."

Leafiara offers, "Dwi makes a great anbil charred cheese sammich, though."

A forest wolf growls menacingly!

A forest wolf barks loudly!

Umbazi says, "I think I'll go hunt undead giants."

Dwi heartily says, "I giff a rooter a tummy ache once...frem da inside out."

Speaking to a forest wolf, Pukk exclaims, "Exactly!"

Cryheart says, "I can imagine."

Speaking to Leafiara, Maags exclaims, "Anything that complicated sounding is bound to tummyache!"

Speaking cautiously to Maags, Leafiara says, "Well, I guess I can't deny the aftereffects, but it sure was tasty while it lasted..."

Pukk says, "Oh you should hear the Mayor's recipe for a sandwich."

Pukk says, "First you have to take over the world...then...."

Someone shouts, "The Landing OOC Meeting shall begin shortly! Look soon for the portal east of Moot Hall!"

Pukk yells, "About time!"

Puptilian yells, "Late!"

Maags says, "Why are we HERE."

Pukk yells, "It's my money and I want it now!"

A bolt of lightning streaks down from the sky and strikes Puptilian!

... 9 points of damage!

Shocking jolt to forehead. Painful.

He is stunned!

A tremendous crack of thunder follows instantly!

Speaking amusedly to Puptilian, Leafiara says, "Nice work."

Speaking to Puptilian, Pukk says, "Likes me better than you."

Speaking heartily to Puptilian, Chamorr says, "Zap."

Darcena asks, "Did something happen?"

Dwi heartily says, "Issa biscious circle."

Pukk says, "I guess we should start this off right tonight."

Leafiara admits, "Not yet."

Pukk recites:

"Everybody join Cryheart!"

Darcena says, "Ah."

Speaking to Cryheart, Darcena says, "That seems like a terrible mistake."

Speaking mischievously to Darcena, Leafiara says, "Never."

Speaking to Goldstr, Pukk says, "It's expected out of me...part of being Pukk."

Dwi recites heartily:

"Now pants Cryheart!"

Cryheart says, "Aye...makes us all one target."

Cryheart says, "I am nae wearing pants."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags asks, "I leaves for one minute and yous get in trouble?"

Speaking tentatively to Cryheart, Leafiara says, "Too much information."

Cryheart says, "Aye."

Roelaren says, "A kilt perhaps."

Darcena says, "I left my stout at the bar."

Maylan exclaims, "It must be ever so lonely at the bar, without you!"

Dwi taps Darcena lightly on her shoulder.

Speaking to Maylan, Darcena says, "I agree."

Speaking curiously to Dwi, Darcena asks, "Yes?"

Maags says, "Sir Knight does not enjoy a kilt as he blushes the entire time he wears it."

Dwi heartily says, "If'n I was Misser Pukk Idda said I'll be yer stout."

Roelaren says, "Ahh."

Speaking to Dwi, Darcena says, "Thoughtful."

Speaking to Cryheart, Maags says, "Yous should has a kilt fashioned of ribbons."

A big blue portal appears.


More Awaiting

Sir Cryheart's group just went through a big blue portal.

[The Strategy Stage]

Cold and colorless, the room resembles a stone bunker which is devoid of any real decor, with the exception of a large corkboard in one corner. On the board is a map of Wehnimer's Landing, a hit list, a family photo, and two tickets. You also see a massive statue and a circular wooden table with some stuff on it.

Leifa says, "Ooooh, the Strategy Stage."

Roelaren says, "Nice."

Pukk says, "Okay since this is all OOC I can stop being serious all the time."

Cryheart: "Portal for town meeting is east of Moot Hall."

Speaking amusedly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "Uh-huh."

Leifa says, "I want cake, dammit."

Leifa taps a three-tiered MHO cake on a circular wooden table.

Dwi heartily says, "An awfull paintin...it aint lookin real."

>lo phot

You see a crude drawing of a stick figure holding a brain inside of a jar. Below the figure are the words, "Uncle Krang, I miss you."

Regwen says, "Chocolate."

Having major lag, give me a few minutes.

Darcena yells, "A likely story!"

Pukk yells, "Lies!"

Leifa asks, "Lag?"

Regwen asks, "Is lag code for kids?"

Leifa asks, "Are we on dial up?"

Raelee snuggles up to Lylia.

Speaking heartily to Gutstorm, Dwi says, "It's a place."

Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "I just saw you snuggle and I almost fainted."

Lylia exclaims, "I get to be friendly and use contractions!"

Speaking to Pukk, Raelee says, "Watch this."

Speaking to Raelee, Pukk says, "I was sure my meds were bad."

Dwi heartily says, "Cake is jus a frosting delivery mechanism."

Speaking to Lylia, Lazaryth says, "That's.. unnerving."

Leifa exclaims, "Cake is everything, do not mock the Cake!"

Lazaryth says, "I suppose I can stop hitting on everyone now."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Darcena exclaims, "THAT'S what you've been doing?!"

Speaking heartily to Leifa, Dwi says, "Aint mockin...tryin to scrape off a frostin flower or two."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "You're like a little, scary teddy bear."

Ysharra says, "On fire."

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee says, "Rawr."

Pukk says, "Open up your command prompt and type DEL *.*."

Lyrna says, "Finally get back from the dog driving me nuts - she's with my hubby now - and Kenny has to reboot."

Speaking to Maylan, Siggurd says, "And then making a long distance call to connect because you didn't check the box to not do that."

Shinann says, "I miss the screeching connection."

Pukk exclaims, "That will speed things up!"

Speaking to Maylan, Goldstr says, "At 3600 baud."

Maylan says, "Ha."

Speaking to Pukk, Regwen says, "You are so helpful tonight."

Speaking to Regwen, Pukk exclaims, "I know right!"

Speaking to Goldstr, Siggurd exclaims, "But it was 9600 fax!"

Lazaryth says, "My, my. We're old."

Leifa says, "Just as long as we don't lose a whole night's experience and all our stuff."

Puptilian says, "I remember playing GS on 14.4."

Lylia says, "Everyone must wait while I get some beef jerky and a handful of dates."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "Speak for yourself."

Lylia says, "Please don't be interesting while I'm away."

Speaking to Lylia, Maylan says, "I volunteer as a date."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "No promises."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Leifa says, "I'm old."

Lylia says, "You're always my date."

Shinann says, "Dates... yum."

Speaking to Lylia, Pukk says, "Too late...I'm always interesting."

Speaking to Lylia, Maylan says, "I'll take you to the candy shop."

Speaking to Leifa, Lazaryth says, "I am also old."

Cryheart says, "I recall when there were 2000 folks in game...and there was a merchant...and the screen did not move."

Lazaryth says, "But! Not as old as you think."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Leifa says, "It's a place to be honest."

Pukk smiles as he seems to reach into your pockets and steal 23 silvers!

Chamorr heartily says, "I'm 14."

>steal pukk

You reach into Pukk's pockets and pull out 28 silvers.

Speaking to Cryheart, Ysharra says, "Getting locked in with Souki."

Roelaren says, "Bygone days."

Speaking to Chamorr, Lylia exclaims, "Uh-huh, a likely story!"

Leifa says, "Naughty."

Speaking to Pukk, Puptilian says, "First time I saw that in ages."

Speaking to Cryheart, Ysharra says, "And she'd run through over a hundred of us."

You give Pukk 28 coins.

Maylan asks, "So, who plans to be at the Crossroads over New Years Eve?"

Speaking to Pukk, Puptilian says, "And first time I saw it I thought he really stole."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "Oh, you do have good ideas."

Speaking amusedly to Pukk, Leafiara says, "Sheesh, I actually managed to get 28 from you."

You reach into Pukk's spidersilk cloak and pull out a crystal amulet.

Lazaryth says, "Oh, it's been a long time."

Speaking to Puptilian, Pukk says, "I was doing that back 20+ years ago...got me killed even then."

Cryheart says, "And ye get to see their offices."

Leifa says, "The GM is feeding the hamsters."

Shinann says, "I hate going out when you're supposed to have fun."

Leafiara offers Pukk a crystal amulet.

Cryheart says, "And such."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Maylan says, "The GMs open up their hidey holes and we all go run amok."

Speaking to Dwi, Lazaryth exclaims, "You have an accent in real life too?!"

Roelaren says, "Ahh depends."

Maags says, "There are stipper poles and pianos."

Speaking quietly to Barzillia, Landrat says, "Good evenin Master."

Pukk accepts Leafiara's crystal amulet.

Cryheart says, "And get turned into a kobold."

Speaking to Maylan, Goldstr says, "I always at least stop by."

>steal pukk

You couldn't find anything worth taking. Maybe you should offer Pukk a donation instead.

>steal pukk

You are still recovering from your last larceny attempt.

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk exclaims, "You are doing good!"

Lazaryth says, "I remember that from way back."

Speaking to Pukk, Puptilian says, "I may have been one of those."

Lyrna says, "Eew. Not a kobold."

Speaking to Cryheart, Ysharra says, "Ysharra thinks Cryheart gets too little respect. I, on the other hand, thinks he needs MORE pinching."

Speaking to Maags, Lylia says, "I'm crushed. You don't smell like unicorn sprinkles and caramel clouds."

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian says, "That is only on Mondays."

Speaking to Lylia, Maags exclaims, "Blame the knight!"

Speaking to Puptilian, Pukk says, "Wouldn't surprise me."

Lazaryth says, "Oh, yes. Since we're being OOC, can I just say how much I appreciate you all? You make my evenings very entertaining."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "You are right. Watching you being friendly is weird."

Dwi recites heartily:

"First to make Cryheart blush wins a cookie!"

Speaking to Lazaryth, Maylan says, "Aww, thank you! And likewise. Your presence has been a delight."

Sile hoarsely asks, "What kind of cookie?"

Lylia says, "I'll have to be far more rigid and dour to make up for it later."

Speaking to Cryheart, Pukk says, "I know it's hard but you don't have to say dinnae anymore."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "Somehow I'm sure you'll have reason."

Evia says, "Hugs for all, tis the season."

Cryheart says, "Tis my Scot/Irish heritage."

Speaking to Maags, Pukk says, "Dear god....he might actually be that old."

Starting Off: 2020 Plans

Kenstrom exclaims, "Alright!"

Cryheart says, "Also English and Welsh."

Kenstrom says, "That was nuts."

Cryheart says, "Good evening."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Maags says, "Always an entrance."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "Are you ever not late? I think that means we all get one spin of the wheel of deeds."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Pukk asks, "Was it a big BM?"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Maags says, "Pylasar's is better."

Kenstrom snickers at Puptilian.

Pukk is buffeted by the wind and knocked to the ground!

Pukk laughs!

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Dwi says, "He's a GM silly."

Speaking to Pukk, Ysharra says, "You tell us."

Speaking to Cryheart, Puptilian says, "I'm trying. It's not like he doesn't take the deeds back anyway."

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Dwi says, "BM's are more important."

Pukk says, "You're the wind beneath my wings."

Speaking dryly to Kenstrom, Darcena deadpans, "Hey Kenstrom. You have your GameMaster tag on."

Speaking sadly to Chamorr, Leafiara says, "Already tried." [he entered with a snowball]

Kenstrom snickers.

A bolt of lightning streaks down from the sky and strikes Pukk!

... 13 points of damage!

Visible wisps of electricity shoot up right leg. Youch!

He is stunned!

A tremendous crack of thunder follows instantly!

Speaking to Pukk, Puptilian says, "Record time."

Goldstr exclaims, "OOC meeting and we still all join Cryheart!"

Cryheart says, "Blame Pukk."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Maylan says, "I like your 28123 tattoo. It's a striking likeness."

Lyrna says, "Of course! It's the thing to do."

Kenstrom says, "Alright, let me snag a question list..."

Speaking cheekily to Cryheart, Leafiara says, "We always do."

Cryheart says, "Aye...2020 I will be a past thing."

Speaking to Goldstr, Ysharra says, "I just thought it would help me pinch him."

Speaking to Puptilian, Pukk says, "I told you. This is all OOC so I don't have to be so serious now."

Roelaren says, "It is comforting."

Kenstrom snickers at Sile.

Sile grins at Kenstrom.

Kenstrom says, "Also I did say 10:30-ish."

Kenstrom nods at Puptilian.

Guarrin deeply says, "Emphasis on the ish."

Bernadette softly says, "Ye still has time then."

Kenstrom says, "The ish is always ishy."

Lyrna says, "Always."

Maags says, "Ish10;30."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "Excuses. Next you will blame the wife or kids."

Shinann says, "Emphasis is always on the ish."

Xorus says, "Times are aspirational."

Darcena says, "Ishy fishy sitchy."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika says, "You need a new watch for Christmas."

Leifa says, "They just want to sleep, those silly east coasters."

Lyrna asks, "Crazy, isn't it?"

Maags says, "He needs a new time zone for Christmas."

Lazaryth says, "My only question is about how we can make buildings in the Landing more flammable."

Dwi heartily says, "Dis comfy too."

Speaking to Lyrna, Puptilian asks, "Sleep? Do you know what that is?"

Pukk exclaims, "I just blew my big chance!"

Leifa says, "It's prime time, babies, West Coast."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "I've been up for over 18 hours and I spent the day teaching twenty-six three to six year olds."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "Entertain me."

Pukk says, "I should have been all serious and not made a joke."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "I would think the answer is clear."

Speaking quietly to Razanetika, Kobane whispers aloud, "Or a new ISP with less lag."

Pukk exclaims, "To throw everybody off!"

Speaking to Lazaryth, Raelee says, "If it didn't rain all the time, one assumes the wood would be a lot drier..."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "Bring Goblyn with you."

Kenstrom flirts with Darcena.

Cryheart says, "Ye must be all wound up."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "I do miss Jellybeard."

Suddenly Kenstrom looms high above you, striking terror into your very soul!

Lyrna says, "Actually, with classes this last semester, I've had to be a bit better about it."

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Dwi asks, "Gonna talk or somethin' feller?"

Speaking heartily to Darcena, Chamorr says, "And now yer wif the kndergaten."

Kenstrom says, "Jelly isn't dead."

Leafiara amusedly says, "Could've dropped by Caligos and seen him."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Pukk says, "I saw your underwear."

Pukk says, "It was horrible."

Leifa says, "Put back on the diaper and we'll talk."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena exclaims, "He never came by for his date!"

Evia says, "Well that's new, left my cup of coffee in the bookshelf."

Kenstrom says, "And hey, cut me some slack, it's my birthday in 2 days."

Kenstrom sticks out his tongue.

Lylia says, "I have dates. Medjool dates."

Darcena dryly says, "I was so looking forward to it, too."

Kenstrom says, "The big 21..."

Kenstrom snickers to himself.

Shinann says, "Ohh."

Regwen says, "Ooo."

Cryheart says, "Congrats."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "Getting old and slow. No slack for you."

Maylan says, "You can finally legally drink. Congratulations."

Kenstrom says, "Alright. Let's begin!"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Pukk says, "Congrats."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "I just turned...some age or another."

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Chamorr asks, "21?"

Kenstrom says, "Hah true."

Maags says, "We'll buy you a drink."

Leifa sings:

"Happy Birthday.....&lt

Breathing&gt

....Mr. President......"

Kenstrom says, "38 is the new 21. I'm told."

Kenstrom says, "So I'll make this quick."

Speaking to Darcena, Ysharra asks, "That must mean I'm 31, then, right?"

Leifa says, "Oh, there's something, you can't use < in song >"

Kenstrom says, "I don't have a lot of plans for 2020. On purpose. I want to get some of your ideas."

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Dwi exclaims, "Angry Giants. Meeting dismissed!"

Evia says, "He's already trying to ditch the lot of us."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika says, "Nothing you do is quick."

Kenstrom says, "But there's 4 things I want to finally get done in 2020."

Darcena says, "Warcats. Stone. More."

Berkana says, "I'd like to actually hear Kenstrom..."

Speaking firmly to Kenstrom, Lylia says, "Faendryl domination."

Puptilian says, "Kill Stone, bring back the orc to what he was, burn down IceMule..."

Maags says, "Tart shop permits."

Speaking quietly to Kenstrom, Kobane says, "Some joint efforts with Icemule."

The voice of Thrassus exclaims, "Blow everything up!"

Puptilian says, "Or just a Maags Bakery."

Pukk says, "Halfling invasion."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Dwi says, "Tart shop races."

Kenstrom says, "But there's 4 things I want to finally get done in 2020."

Chamorr heartily says, "Get ridda that statue."

Speaking to Pukk, Maags says, "Been done. we won."

Leifa asks, "Can there be less blood dripping from the walls and twisted nightmarish horror shows?"

Kenstrom says, "1. The Rusty Cutlass tavern/inn in town. FINALLY."

Kenstrom snickers at Leifa.

Evia says, "Yay."

Leifa flutters her eyelashes at Kenstrom.

Cryheart says, "And baudy women in it."

Razanetika softly asks, "The what?"

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Chamorr says, "Make sure it has scotch."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra asks, "A shrine over by the Black Sands. Right?"

Lazaryth says, "And bawdy men."

Razanetika softly asks, "Why do we need another Inn?"

Cryheart says, "Teasing folks."

Speaking to Razanetika, Leafiara says, "Shady tavern he's been wanting to build for a while."

Speaking to Razanetika, Puptilian says, "A new seedy bar ran by the Rooks."

Kenstrom says, "There may or may not also be a Shantytown updates I may or may not be considering."

Kobane quietly says, "A locking gag for Pukk."

Maags says, "This is why I don't like OOC."

Leifa exclaims, "Baudy women with bodice daggers!"

Maags says, "He didn't even blush."

Evia says, "YAY."

Rasson says, "Sounds like abother brawling bar."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Pukk says, "That clears things up."

Rasson says, "That could be fun."

Kenstrom says, "The Rusty Cutlass is going to be a nice shady place."

Lazaryth asks, "Will it be upgraded to hoveltown?"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "Gavrien will be glad to hear it."

Kenstrom says, "...and I don't mean sun-blocking trees."

Speaking quietly to Leafiara, Kobane suggests, "You can have the key."

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking to Cryheart, Regwen says, "Glissando would have loved it."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika asks, "Is there going to be a dart board in a noded room?"

Kenstrom says, "2. A document titled Ithzir: Genesis."

Leifa says, "Yes, have a crew of ample-bosomed harlots attack us with their bodice daggers..."

Cryheart asks, "Like the Solhaven area?"

Speaking amusedly to Kobane, Leafiara asks, "But wouldn't you want him not getting it off?"

Shinann says, "Ohh."

Speaking quietly to Kenstrom, Kobane asks, "But really though, when is the siegery shop going to re-open?"

Lyrna says, "That seems a bit ominous."

Dwi heartily says, "Ick...I hate drummers who sing."

Speaking to Cryheart, Pukk says, "I was thinking that too."

Evia says, "So Rusty Cutlass will have dancing boys."

Umbazi dejectedly says, "Oh."

The voice of Thrassus asks, "Wait, Phil Collins was a Ithzir?"

Kenstrom says, "I'm working on some Ithzir genesis origins and other info on them."

Kenstrom snickers.

Leifa says, "Ithzir."

Speaking to Mnar, Ysharra says, "I could dip your pigtails in ink instead."

Kenstrom says, "I love me some Ithzir and Tehir if you can't tell."

Leafiara lightly says, "I remember that one being in the works since 5116, just saying..."

Guarrin deeply says, "Think of the drum solos alone..."

Goldstr says, "Ithzir info a be good."

Maylan says, "Oh man, I did enjoy that Ithzir storyline."

Kenstrom says, "Maybe I'll make their races have hyrbid babies to rule the world."

Raelee asks, "Tethzir?"

Kenstrom says, "Ithir."

Kenstrom says, "Tethzir."

Kenstrom snickers.

Evia says, "So...Ithzir playables."

Xorus says, "The Ithzir are all about those drum solos."

Puptilian says, "Well Tehir does go good with a strong red wine..."

Dara says, "Eek."

Lylia says, "I enjoyed the Ithzir as well."

Umbazi asks, "What are Ithzir?"

Kenstrom says, "Yeah Return to Sunder was awesome."

Leifa says, "God, you already did that with krolvin."

Ysharra says, "I would like to see what's going on with Rodnay."

Speaking to Umbazi, Puptilian says, "A race of aliens."

Dwi heartily asks, "Imma have fun sayin Ithzir...Ithzir anyone else here who agrees?"

Umbazi says, "Oh."

Kenstrom says, "Rodnay is the dragon egg that hatches and brings about DragonRealms."

Kenstrom snickers.

Kenstrom says, "Kidding."

Ysharra nods at Kenstrom.

Maylan says, "I KNEW it."

Speaking to Umbazi, Lylia says, "Blue extra-planar guys. Think aliens, but not alien-aliens because we don't have spaceships in Elanthia."

Darcena asks, "Isn't he a mothman?"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "You're going to make Xorus have kittens."

Darcena says, "RETCON."

Speaking to Lylia, Puptilian exclaims, "Still aliens though!"

Kenstrom says, "Rodnay is the FASCINATION THAT SHALL BECOME HOR..."

The voice of Thrassus exclaims, "Rodnay is a paragon, we better go burn that coccoon!"

Dara says, "I always thought Elanthia was a flat world."

Speaking to Ysharra, Lylia says, "Good! I like kittens."

Speaking to Dara, Maags says, "It isn't."

Kenstrom says, "Okay, sorry. Let me finish."

Cryheart asks, "Rodnay will be an IT?"

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "I'm sure he'll make some adorably fluffy ones."

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi says, "Imma get that ribbon altered someday."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "I'm just going to point out that you're interrupting yourself."

Kenstrom says, "3. New NPC siege miniatures. I haven't done those in YEARS. So I'll be adding like...12-15 new NPC miniatures to hand out in more unique situations."

Goldstr says, "I be wishin Rodnay be a hero."

Speaking softly to Dwi, Razanetika exclaims, "Luck to you on that!"

Leafiara excitedly exclaims, "Can't wait!"

Maags says, "Christmas presents."

Kenstrom says, "And 4th..."

Puptilian says, "Good I need to finish my walkar collection. Need the projection version."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Regwen says, "I love mine."

Kenstrom says, "Which I 'hope' to kick off in 2020 but likely not conclude in 2020..."

Dwi heartily says, "Mini floating discs."

Kenstrom says, "Storyline - No Title Yet."

Cryheart says, "Break the Stone."

Darcena says, "I propose 'Do You Have the Stones?'"

Puptilian says, "A Stone's Throw to Chaos."

Lylia asks, "Romancing the Stone?"

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena says, "Yes please."

Darcena says, "I volunteer."

Lylia says, "Yes. Yes, I am proud of that one."

Dwi heartily exclaims, "Sly and da family Kenstrom!"

Kenstrom says, "Grishom has to collect multicolored gem-orbs to overthrow the Arkati and rule the multiverse..."

Cryheart says, "A good ole, Toss the Stone would suffice."

Kenstrom says, "The storyline will be called..."

Kenstrom says, "Gem-Stone."

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "You know..."

Speaking to Ysharra, Darcena says, "No."

Roelaren says, "Oh no."

Ysharra says, "That last round of hell in the Bleaklands reminded me of that very much."

Cryheart says, "Good one."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "When we were all piling out of the portal, and getting ready to throw down? Totally Endgame."

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi says, "He aint mentioned Angry Giants yet....dis issa bust."

Kenstrom says, "But yes. The next "main" storyline will be Grishom Stone."

Roelaren says, "I figured as much."

Kenstrom says, "I do plan to do some more development stuff before then."

Xorus asks, "Will the game officially end when Stone wins?"

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee asks, "But what about the things Endgame copied from Kenstrom?"

Kenstrom says, "There's a red orc still on the loose, I think."

Kenstrom snickers at Xorus.

Kenstrom says, "Thaddy Daddy is out there somewhere we think."

Speaking to Shinann, Maags says, "See."

Speaking to Xorus, Puptilian says, "Well no reason to not play as slaves. Stone doesn't want to destroy the world...just run it."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "If that means soon there will be a scene where it's all the female characters fixing everything..."

Kenstrom says, "And I have plans for other NPC's we haven't seen much of yet, or as much."

Kenstrom says, "And Rone 3.0 and Mother."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "Fair enough."

Xorus says, "I'm aiming for middle management."

Leafiara says, "Here comes the return of that hack Osment... as Leafi would say."

Speaking deeply to Xorus, Guarrin says, "The dream."

Kenstrom snickers at Ysharra.

Maylan says, "Whew - good luck to the next Mayor."

Kenstrom says, "Endgame totally stole my ideas."

Goldstr says, "Thadston, Pylasar, Thrayzar, an Disean all need work now."

Speaking to Maylan, Raelee says, "Owly can handle anything."

Kenstrom says, "Tears of Koar in the Bleaklands..."

Raelee exclaims, "That!"

Kenstrom says, "Pylasar going back in time and not coming back..."

Kenstrom snickers.

Evia says, "I thought the epilogue line that said 'threads of heaven' was a clue to the next storyline title."

Kenstrom says, "I thought of that."

Maags says, "You can't get rid of your best npc."

Kenstrom nods at Evia.

Guarrin deeply says, "Surprised old Pylasar didn't show up ona bench nearby."

Kenstrom says, "I've a few working titles."

Thrassus says, "It was a hint that the storyline will involve knitting."

Kenstrom says, "Like 'I win you lose.'"

Evia says, "GAME OF STONES."

Dwi heartily says, "Pylasar should go back in time and find Svardin's sanity."

Evia says, "I win the game, goodnight."

Puptilian says, "Evia wins for tonight."

Maags asks, "He had sanity?"

Speaking heartily to Maags, Dwi says, "Oh."

Kenstrom says, "I've still got some other NPC's in town."

Lylia says, "Yes, that was excellent."

Goldstr says, "And Larsya needs ta find Dawn."

Kenstrom says, "Cordarius, Octaven, Stephos, Alendrial, Casiphia."

Kenstrom says, "The Caulfields."

Kobane quietly says, "A song of sandstone and granite."

Shinann says, "Renpaw."

Lylia says, "We still have a blight to end, too."

Ysharra says, "The teleporter."

Shinann asks, "Or did he die?"

Cryheart says, "The Survivors."

Evia says, "Gosh."

Speaking to Ysharra, Lylia exclaims, "Ayred! Yes!"

Shinann says, "He is old."

Ysharra says, "Did we ever find out what had happened to him? I don't even remember now."

Kenstrom says, "I'm also submitting a proposal next week. But I need approval because well..."

Evia asks, "And uhm...that icky guy Beldrin?"

Leafiara says, "Https://gswiki.play.net/Landing_Events_(KST) These ones."

Umbazi says, "I'd like to know why the Blight didn't end after Raznel did."

Kenstrom says, "It could be controversial, and evoke feelings."

Lazaryth says, "Sounds marvelous."

Kenstrom says, "So if that's approved, then something else too."

Kenstrom snickers.

Maylan says, "I like feelings."

Speaking incredulously to Kenstrom, Leafiara says, "Your proposals? Never."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Regwen says, "You've done that before."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "Out with it."

Leifa says, "Dammit, more gross out stuff."

Umbazi asks, "Controversial in what way?"

Kenstrom says, "Nope. Lips are sealed."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "You know you're dying to hint more than that."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Dwi says, "Dont tell Gutstorm."

Kenstrom says, "I'll tell you IF it doesn't get approved."

Kenstrom says, "And if it does get approved you'll KNOW."

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "Sounds totally unfair."

Lylia says, "I don't mind feelings. I like feelings, in fact."

Sile hoarsely says, "Quick someone get him drunk."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Dwi says, "He'll take it as permission."

Umbazi says, "Depends on the feelings, I suppose."

Shinann says, "Now I'm wondering all sorts of things."

Kenstrom says, "It may or may not cause mayoral headaches."

Kenstrom says, "SORRYNOTSORRY."

Speaking to Shinann, Ysharra says, "You're not alone."

Speaking to Dwi, Maags exclaims, "Nevah!"

Kenstrom winks at Lylia.

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking gravely to Shinann, Leafiara says, "Gonna be the Vaalorian outpost."

Speaking to Shinann, Ysharra says, "Crazy, crazy things."

Lylia hides her face in her upturned palm and slowly shakes her head. After a barely audible sigh, she regards Kenstrom with world-weary gaze.

Roelaren says, "Whoo."

Pukk exclaims, "Yay to headaches!"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "Mayors need more headaches. You been slacking the last few years."

Lyrna says, "Being mayor causes mayoral headaches."

Kenstrom exclaims, "Alright!"

Kenstrom snickers at Puptilian.

Kenstrom says, "But if you want to write up some background on your character, or have it already, feel free to EMAIL it to me."

Kenstrom says, "I will also post a list of the characters I already have archived."

Lazaryth says, "Ah, good."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "Have to snuggle all the aloof sorts and get it out of our systems."

Speaking to Ysharra, Lylia says, "Exactly."

Leafiara says, "I'll email you the link to my wiki page."

Thrassus says, "I suppose I should do that eventually."

Pukk asks, "I have a question. Will you be making a another book like The Death of Me (Only $.99 on Amazon Kindle https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01MTUUWKD )?"

Maags says, "I probably should finally do that."

Speaking to Thrassus, Lazaryth asks, "What, snuggle?"

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "So we can go back to telling them they smell like ozone."

Kenstrom says, "I say this because it helps me sometimes in coming up with ideas, plots, who to press or use, and it also helps for any heroes of villains who may have ways of knowing things."

Lylia says, "I should update my bio."

Leifa says, "I think several of us have wiki pages."

Leafiara mumbles, "My ludicrously longwinded wiki page."

Kenstrom cackles at Pukk!

Speaking to Leafiara, Avalera says, "I was considering that as well."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Thrassus says, "Always."

Speaking to Maags, Leafiara says, "You should! I hate constantly linking your name in logs and it's red."

Kenstrom says, "Hah. +1 Stone point to Pukk for shamelessly pugging my book."

Kenstrom says, "Plugging too."

Kenstrom snickers.

Leafiara adds, "Annd that goes for all of you who don't have wiki pages."

Speaking to Leafiara, Maags says, "I started."

Leifa says, "Pugging sounds kinky."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "I like the idea of him pugging it more, honestly."

Lyrna exclaims, "I do, I do!"

Speaking to Pukk, Puptilian says, "Suck up."

Speaking heartily to Pukk, Dwi asks, "He wrote a book about pugs?"

Lyrna says, "Although I only went through the end of 2017."

Darcena says, "Although I did read it - and enjoy it - a long time ago."

Sile adds his name to the jumbo list.

Chamorr heartily says, "Now the pages are sticky."

Regwen says, "We need another."

Lyrna says, "After that, it got too hard to decide what to write, and too... controversial."

Kenstrom says, "Okay, before the first question."

Kenstrom says, "I want to take a moment to acknowledge two things."

Leifa adds her name to the jumbo list.

Umbazi adds his name to the jumbo list.

Kenstrom says, "First, thank you to all of you. This is fun for me. And you've always kept it fun. I come up with stories, but half of it evolves before it ends. So I'm along for the ride. So thanks for showing up, winging it, playing with me as much as I play with you. It's an outlet for sure and thank you."

Lylia says, "We love it."

Evia says, "I love winging."

Cryheart says, "The feeling is mutual."

Lyrna says, "Collaborative storytelling."

Lylia says, "Even when we hate certain parts of it, we love it."

Raelee says, "What he said."

Kenstrom says, "Secondly, big big shout out to Leafiara. Your logs have changed the way storylines are archived, accessed and followed, not only by the players, but by me and other GM's. Your tireless work does not go unnoticed, so thank you very much."

Goldstr exclaims, "For us too!"

Chamorr heartily says, "Keeps me awake to 3am."

Cryheart says, "Amen to that."

Dwi whispers to the group, "I'm jus here to pretend I dont understand wot's goin on...but dont tell HIM dat."

Leafiara says, "You're welcome! Everyone."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "We're very flattered and grateful that you spend so much time with us and for us, when you're clearly so busy."

Roelaren says, "Huzzah."

Kenstrom says, "I use it to keep track of my own stuff sometimes like 'oh yeah I did that.'"

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking knowingly to Kenstrom, Leafiara says, "Same way here..."

Chamorr heartily says, "Leafi is amazin, fer sure."

Speaking to Leafiara, Maags says, "It really is an amazing thing you do."

Kenstrom says, "Alright, mushy session over."

Kenstrom exclaims, "Questions!"

Razanetika softly says, "There is no one like Leafiara."


Comment #1, from Puptilian: Blood Magic

Kenstrom exclaims, "Pup!"

Speaking to Leafiara, Ysharra says, "He's right. Sometimes reading the logs at work the next day is really helpful to sort through his nonsense."

Leifa says, "Leafiara keeping up the wiki has been invaluable."

Speaking heartily to Leafiara, Dwi says, "Cept ye quote Pukk too much."

Kenstrom says, "If you're going to ask me about mayoral portraits..."

Chamorr heartily says, "And she knows all about commas and periods."

Kenstrom says, "It's still on my list."

Kenstrom snickers.

Maags says, "Of course he is."

Speaking amusedly to Dwi, Leafiara says, "Well, he's the funny one. I have to get him in there." [unfinished thought because it's too much to explain a live real-time setting, but basically the point of the "highlights" section is creating a space for our more comedic PCs to get some love, since they're often not the kinds of characters who will progress the story (which would earn them a spot in the story summaries)]

Lylia says, "Well, I wasn't, but now that you mention it...."

Speaking heartily to Leafiara, Dwi asks, "He is?"

Rasson says, "She got a statue who needs a picture."

Shinann says, "Think they all want statues now."

Speaking to Lylia, Darcena says, "You have an entire stat---"

Darcena says, "Rasson already said it."

Kenstrom turns an inquisitive ear toward Puptilian.

Lazaryth says, "Clearly, each mayor from here on out also will require a statue."

Lylia says, "Yeah, I think I can live with leaving the statue up."

Lylia says, "...but I would also like a portrait."

Lylia says, "And a pony."

Lylia says, "For Maags, of course."

Puptilian says, "So since the beginning to now, the ideas around blood magic, its rules, uses, etc have changed. I get that some of it is evolving to add to it and some of it due to just story needs but when are you going to release a blood magic doc so we can have at least some framework of rules. I know the original rules but seems today they have changed and it always good to have some basic framework for all to work off of."

Maags exclaims, "Then I might run!"

Dwi heartily exclaims, "Ponies!"

Speaking to Lylia, Raelee says, "Ask Xorus. He might let you borrow his nightmare pony."

Kenstrom says, "How has it changed."

Puptilian ponders.

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "Owly might need a pony soon."

Speaking amusedly to Puptilian, Leafiara says, "Ask a hard one why don't you..."

Speaking heartily to Maags, Dwi says, "I'd steal ye a pony if I could find one."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "I'm still amazed that bird can fly."

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee says, "Magic."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "Black hole, more like."

Speaking deeply to Ysharra, Guarrin says, "Owl of holding."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "It seems to me, and something we can take offline later as this could be a long discussion, but the blurred lines between destructive versus contructive uses of it, how much power gain or lost based on how blood was taken or given, which blood is used, etc."

Puptilian shrugs.

Thrassus says, "Owly is like a bumblebee with feathers when it comes to aerodynamics."

Chamorr heartily says, "Wow."

Lazaryth says, "A bumblebird."

Kenstrom says, "There's been a lot of player-created rules about blood magic as well."

Puptilian nods.

Evia says, "Yup."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "Sounds like a Dr. Seuss character."

Puptilian says, "And that is my point...it would be nice to have at least a frameowrk or base information to work with."

Puptilian grins.

Kenstrom says, "Which I'm all for supporting people's theories and ideas, but yes without specific specifics, it can blur."

Kenstrom says, "I don't know if there will ever be a certain framework. I started on a blood magic doc."

Puptilian nods.

Kenstrom says, "When or if it's finished, it'll definitely allow some room for expandability."

Kenstrom says, "For future ideas, etc."

Puptilian nods.

Puptilian says, "Yeah don't think we need everything filled out but a foundation is good at least."

Kenstrom says, "But I think the main basics still apply. Blood given willingly is more powerful than blood taken, except perhaps in some cases."

Dwi heartily asks, "Pernicious anemia?"

Kenstrom says, "A man calling himself the Blood God probably doesn't matter his source."

Puptilian ponders.

Puptilian says, "Depends."

Puptilian whistles tunelessly to himself.

Kenstrom says, "Also I think my laptop is going to reboot itself in like 20 mins, hah. so if I vanish, I'll be back. Damn Windows."

Lyrna says, "Still might be more powerful."

Kenstrom says, "It might not."

Maags says, "Get a Mac."

Kenstrom says, "But noted."

Kenstrom says, "BOO MAC."


Comment #2, from Maylan: Short-Term Events

Kenstrom exclaims, "Maylan!"

Evia says, "BOO."

Puptilian says, "Will does play into it too."

Kenstrom says, "Arrrgg."

Maylan says, "WHAT."

Maylan says, "Oh."

Maylan says, "Okay."

Maylan exclaims, "I have a request! While we're inbetween storylines, I would very much enjoy some crazy silly shenanigans or otherwise short-term RP events that are not necessarily doom and gloom focused. For example, the Kobold negotiations that happened during Lylia's first term. Although now those poor kobolds are blighted...... Blighted kobold for Mayor 5120!"

Maylan says, "And also....."

Speaking to Leafiara, Puptilian says, "And yes i didn't want to go easy on him."

Maylan says, "DOUBLE JEOPARDY BONUS POINTS QUESTION: Can I keep my scarab? It's a little bug living inside of a bigger bug, and his name is Mok."

Leifa says, "What Maylan said."

Leafiara says, "That little mini event was pretty great."

Kenstrom says, "Yes, there will be smaller story/npc stuff soon."

Lylia exclaims, "Good!"

Kenstrom says, "The next big storyline is far away. I haven't even finished the rough outline."

Maags says, "Love the smaller rp stuff a lot too."

Kenstrom says, "So there will be plenty of KST in between."

Maylan says, "Music to my ears."

Lylia says, "We still want KST! Even if it isn't main-story-arc KST."

Maags says, "Easier you don't have to always figure stuff out."

Kenstrom says, "I've got a crapton of homework next week, so I would expect some more KST the following week, or maybe right after Christmas."

Speaking to Maylan, Roelaren says, "I named my bug too."

Puptilian says, "The whodunit night where we were tracking the killer was one of the best 1 night mini rp event I think I was part of."

Kenstrom says, "And not doom and gloom per se."

Maylan wiggles her eyebrows at Roelaren.

Kenstrom says, "There's lots of threads left open."

Evia asks, "Did the winter snack cart guy come yet?"

Goldstr says, "Very good to hear."

Shinann says, "There are."

Kenstrom says, "Nah I plan to bring Tolby's cart soon."

Lyrna exclaims, "Hopefully while I'm on break, before classes start back up again!"

Evia says, "Goodie."

Kenstrom says, "The Blight has kept so much away."

Kenstrom nods.

Kenstrom nods at Lyrna.

Lyrna lets out a cheer!

Maags says, "Owlies might starve because of it."

Darcena says, "Time to end the Blight and erase all mentions of Raznel ever anywhere."

Kenstrom says, "I'll be around more soon."

Kenstrom exclaims, "So don't worry!"

Kenstrom nods at Maylan.

Maylan applauds Kenstrom.

Dwi heartily asks, "Statue topplin?"

Speaking to Maags, Puptilian says, "Never. It's fat enough from all the snacks to not eat for a year."


Comment #3 and #4, from Lylia: Vaalorian Outpost and Town Repairs

Kenstrom exclaims, "Lylia!"

Lylia asks, "Two things! One: What is up with the Vaalor and their building a totally innocent, not at all menacing, entirely on the up-and-up outpost near here where the Elven Village now stands?"

Xorus says, "Just throw the threads and plot points into a hat, jumble it up, and put it together totally at random."

Lylia asks, "Can we expect to see that happen sometime soonish?"

Lyrna says, "Beat me to it."

Lyrna grins at Lylia.

Evia says, "There can be an epic battle between Geijon and Raelee on whether to destroy the statue by bashing, or magic."

Kenstrom says, "One - Not sure. It was a collaboration thing with GM Mazreth. I do intend to follow up with it. So..RSN."

Lylia grins at Lyrna.

Leafiara roars, "Burn it down!" [referring to the Vaalorian outpost; Leafi wouldn't want to burn the statue]

Kenstrom says, "Elves are so sloooow."

Kenstrom says, "To build...to bleed..."

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking to Cryheart, Pukk says, "Oh you must be part elf then."

Kenstrom asks, "Second question you said?"

Lylia says, "And two: I...may have forgotten what two was."

Kenstrom snickers.

Rasson says, "When you live that long can take your time."

Darcena helpfully asks, "Statue?"

Darcena asks, "Portraits?"

Kenstrom exclaims, "Ask again if you remember!"

Lylia exclaims, "Oh!"

Lylia exclaims, "Yes!"

Evia says, "I forgot it was even out there, that outpost thing."

Kenstrom nods.

Lylia says, "I remember now."

Speaking heartily to Lylia, Dwi asks, "Was it somthing about Angry Giants?"

Speaking to Evia, Leafiara says, "It's not yet, as far as I can tell..."

Maags says, "Oh I know what it was."

Lylia asks, "It was about repairs. Could we consider some repairs to the town once the blight is ended?"

Kenstrom asks, "Like?"

Dwi heartily says, "Change da oil."

Evia says, "Like are those crevices still in the ground and stuff."

Dwi heartily says, "Rotate da tires."

Ysharra says, "The bank debris that's been there for thirty years."

Pukk says, "She would like a Lylia statue on every corner."

Shinann says, "It's historical debris."

Lylia says, "Like the scorch-marks on the temple. The crevices. The gem-cutter's shop, which still bears some scars."

Kenstrom says, "Lylia Lane. Rashere Avenue. Faendryl Road."

Speaking to Pukk, Loamian says, "For structural purposes."

Ysharra says, "The defense towers from the CHEs."

Lylia says, "And yes, I would also like these things you just said."

Lylia raises her voice in merry laughter.

Kenstrom says, "Yes. I plan to canvas the town."

Lylia says, "Lylia Lane has a nice ring to it."

Kenstrom says, "Fix up leftover damages, etc."

Dwi heartily says, "Sell paint at a special stand."

Puptilian says, "Every Mayor should have a street named after them..."

Chamorr heartily says, "It's a dead end."

Lylia says, "Wonderful! I know someone who's already done a lot of that and pinpointed repairs."

Kenstrom says, "Ideally, my goal is to also roll out new permanent mood messaging in some areas, and new wandering town NPC's."

Pukk says, "And put it near that new shady place you're making."

Speaking to Lylia, Ysharra says, "It makes it sound like you're about to get a big scoop and then rescued by the Man of Steel."

Kenstrom exclaims, "If someone has a good list of repairs needed, send my way please!"

Lylia exclaims, "I will, and you can thank Nazarr's player for it when you get it!"

Speaking to Leafiara, Pukk says, "You have work now."

Kenstrom says, "I really want to get back into making this town more living, breathing, and not just during a major story arc."

Puptilian says, "I heard let's repaint every town room."

Leafiara says, "We need a shady side of town like the part in Solhaven where you can get mugged..."

Evia says, "Maybe a wandering town NPC contest or did we do that before."

Kenstrom says, "The first half of 2019 was rough for me, but I'm doing better now so feeling more...creative."

Kenstrom says, "We did that."

Kenstrom nods at Evia.

Lazaryth says, "Right. Mugging is essential."

Kenstrom says, "I might do another one."

Dwi heartily says, "Populate the underways with Dwarfs."


Comment #5, from Raelee: Brieson

Kenstrom exclaims, "Raelee!"

Xorus says, "Bring back the curious mystic."

Lylia says, "Eledryn also had an idea for an open-air amphitheater, and I think that sounds amazing too. Also, I hear there are too few rolton pens in town, but I will not name that anonymous source of that comment..."

Raelee points at herself.

Lylia gives a sidelong glance at Darcena.

Speaking to Kenstrom, Raelee asks, "Hey so... is Brieson still alive?"

Kenstrom says, "Yes."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Raelee asks, "What's he up to?"

Roelaren says, "I got mugged here on the docks one time and was held captive about 10 years ago does that count."

Shinann says, "We talked about him the other night."

Kenstrom says, "I have not forgotten about him and his air-windy-unstable-he's-dying-magic."

Raelee says, "He was a nice guy."

Raelee nods.

Maags says, "He was."

Kenstrom says, "Brieson may or may not play a role in the next storyline."

Kenstrom says, "Aka."

Kenstrom says, "He does."

Speaking to Raelee, Puptilian says, "He is doing what Raelee begs to do...move away from this town to study more."

Speaking to Puptilian, Raelee says, "He stole my idea, that jerk."

Chamorr heartily says, "Do all yer NPCs have to be from da Empire."

Kenstrom says, "Maybe Breshon and Brieson will hold formal dinners with everyone weekly so people keep getting them confused."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Raelee says, "Also... Breshon should tear down Thadston's banners in the Outpost and put up his own."

Maylan says, "Oof."

Kenstrom says, "Yeah...that outpost."

Kenstrom says, "Is weird."

Kenstrom says, "Hendorans...Bourthians..Magey people..."

Kenstrom says, "Maybe we need two."

Puptilian says, "Burn it down and start over."

Kenstrom snickers.

Maylan says, "The mysterious Outhouse..."

Xorus says, "Underground baddies."


Comment #6, from Leafiara: Training Arena

Kenstrom exclaims, "Leafiara!"

Raelee says, "I mean, if you wanna put up Magey people banners..."

Raelee grins.

Leafiara says, "I remember when Breshon was supposed to be the temporary commander, then just kinda turned out to be the permanent one with no particular fanfare..."

Leafiara suddenly says, "Oh."

Leafaiara hoots.

Leafiara says, "I've kinda got nothing KST-wise because I think my brain's fried after all the theorizing from Witchful Thinking..."

Leafiara snickers.

Leafiara says, "So, another topic! I figure there's like a 1% chance at best of them letting you do this, but just putting it out there:"

Leafiara says, "We already have the boulder and Helden Hall, so if the militia barracks had a training arena that had Festival of the Fallen mechanics with an announcer and a countdown after the combatants enter and some spells disallowed, then the Landing could be the all-in-one place for PvP duels. Or even a fighting pit in the Rusty Cutlass, or wherever. Whatever works."

Leafiara nods emphatically!

Leafiara glances upward and whistle quietly, an innocent look on her face.

Puptilian says, "Nice suggestion."

Maylan says, "Oooo yeah, Icehouse tavern fighting mechanics."

Kenstrom exclaims, "All I can do is ask!"

Maags says, "People would love that."

Leafiara turns to Kenstrom and cheers!

Speaking suddenly to Maylan, Leafiara exclaims, "That too!"

Speaking to Maylan, Darcena says, "Too rustic."

Chamorr heartily says, "Fight club in the bar."

Chamorr heartily says, "Awesome."

Kenstrom exclaims, "Noted though!"

Lazaryth says, "Yes. I'd like to injure people, please."

Leafiara turns toward Kenstrom and renders a sharp hand salute.

Maylan exclaims, "Those are fighting words. To the tavern!"

Kenstrom says, "What happens in the Cutlass, stays in the Cutlass."

Regwen says, "Night folks. Good seeing you all. I have a bathroom remodel in the morning so need some sleep."

Leafiara grins slowly.

Cryheart says, "There is a tavern in Mule where one could brawl."

Gutstorm drunkenly exclaims, "I mean!"

Goldstr says, "Warrior Guild has a Pugilist Ring."

vKenstrom exclaims, "Maylan enters the Poop Deck! FIGHT!"

Leafiara starts chortling.

You see a lump moving about just under Avalera's skin!

Kenstrom snickers at Avalera.

Kenstrom says, "I like that idea. I'll see what I can do."

Rasson says, "Rusty cutlas for blowing up boxes while picking and not getting hauled off by th night watchman."

Avalera asks, "What?"

Speaking drunkenly to Maylan, Gutstorm says, "Teach me oh wise one."

Leafiara turns to Kenstrom and cheers!

Puptilian adds his name to the jumbo list.

Kenstrom asks, "Bug in your BODY!?"

Kenstrom peers quizzically at Avalera.

Kenstrom snickers.


Comment #7, from Razanetika: Siegery Levels

Kenstrom exclaims, "Razne...erm Razanetika!"

Avalera says, "Yep."

Kenstrom walks off into the distance.

Kenstrom walks off into the distance.

Maylan exclaims, "A bug in a bug!"

Evia says, "Ooopsie."

Berkana says, "Whoops."

Speaking amusedly to Razanetika, Leafiara says, "Ya scared him off."

Maags says, "Windows update."

Razanetika softly says, "Right."

Shinann says, "Reboot."

Darcena says, "20 minutes already."

Cryheart says, "Hold that thought."

Pukk says, "He obviously didn't want to stick around."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Avalera asks, "Go team?"

Speaking gently to Razanetika, Leafiara asks, "On the bright side, more time to think?"

Chamorr removes his name from the jumbo list.

Thrassus shrieks!

Darcena roars at Thrassus!

Thrassus shrieks!

Razanetika softly says, "I have my question.. more or less."

Pukk says, "He was so quick to leave, he left twice."

Maylan says, "Clearly he is very sensitive about skin bugs."

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi asks, "Ye want to change yer name to match yer mini eh?"

Darcena says, "It's okay. I won't tell anyone you shrieked."

Thrassus shrieks!

Darcena adds, "Three times."

Darcena says, "But the fourth time, and whooooo boy."

Darcena says, "Everyone will know."

Darcena holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Dwi recites heartily:

"Everyone but Cryheart...hide!"

Xorus and Darcena pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for scissors!

Darcena makes the symbol for paper!

...Xorus wins!

Speaking mournfully to Xorus, Darcena says, "You always win."

Darcena holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Shinann says, "He does."

Xorus and Darcena pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for rock!

Darcena makes the symbol for rock!

...It's a tie!

Darcena holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Xorus and Darcena pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for paper!

Darcena makes the symbol for rock!

...Xorus wins!

Thrassus gives a slight flick of his wrist, and a smooth erithian scalp suddenly appears in his hand!

Darcena holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Thrassus waves a smooth erithian scalp around.

Xorus and Darcena pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for scissors!

Darcena makes the symbol for scissors!

...It's a tie!

Thrassus exclaims, "It's like a ki-lin horn!"

Speaking to Thrassus, Lazaryth says, "Let me know when you find a hairy erithian scalp, I'll pay good money."

Shinann says, "It is."

Speaking thoughtfully to Lazaryth, Leafiara asks, "Define good?"

Darcena holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Xorus and Darcena pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for scissors!

Darcena makes the symbol for paper!

...Xorus wins!

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "Define hairy."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Leafiara says, "Could roll up an F2P erithian right now and run 'em over to the krolvin..."

Speaking to Leafiara, Lazaryth says, "You are nothing if not practical."

Darcena holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Xorus and Darcena pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for paper!

Darcena makes the symbol for rock!

...Xorus wins!

Umbazi says, "I thought Erithians were frail."

Darcena holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Xorus and Darcena pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for rock!

Darcena makes the symbol for rock!

...It's a tie!

Lazaryth says, "Erithians are actually made out of people."

Maylan exclaims, "Just like soylent green!"

Lylia holds her hand out towards Xorus, palm upward and holding her other hand which is balled into a fist, inviting Xorus to roshambo.

Evia says, "Every time I see the word Erithians I think it says urethra-ians."

Xorus and Lylia pound their fists in their open palms three times...

Xorus makes the symbol for paper!

Lylia makes the symbol for scissors!

...Lylia wins!

Darcena reverently whispers aloud, "It's magic."

Dwi heartily says, "Ithzir...."

Thrassus says, "Getting erithian scalps is like skinning rabbits, you pull in just the right spot and it pops right off."

Speaking to Thrassus, Darcena agrees, "Rabbits are pretty easy."

Kenstrom wanders in.

Kenstrom flails his arms about.

Kenstrom says, "Sorry about that. UGH."

Shinann asks, "Can someone that's already signed up ask him when the next long storyline is planned to start?"

Shinann says, "Or."

Kenstrom asks, "Okay...who was up?"

Leafiara points at Razanetika.

Darcena says, "Mandatory hugs for everyone for waiting."

Siggurd points at Razanetika.

Kenstrom hugs you.

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "I wanna be able to talk in yellow too."

Lyrna says, "Razanetika, but she was afk a moment."

Speaking to Thrassus, Ysharra says, "One wonders how many you've skinned to find that out."

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Dwi exclaims, "They are planning to kill all the rabbits!"

Kenstrom pokes Razanetika in the ribs.

Kenstrom asks, "Awake?"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Pukk exclaims, "Oh I wish I could do that!"

Thrassus waves a smooth erithian scalp at Ysharra.

Speaking to Thrassus, Ysharra says, "That's one."

Razanetika softly says, "Toys."

Razanetika softly says, "One second."

Shinann says, "He made us think a thing."

Razanetika removes a black-robed old witch miniature from in her fur cloak.

Kenstrom turns an inquisitive ear toward Razanetika.

Razanetika softly asks, "Will these things be getting levels?"

Razanetika waves a black-robed old witch miniature around.

Kenstrom asks, "I don't get the question?"

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi says, "Yer da new witch."

Kenstrom peers quizzically at Razanetika.

Razanetika softly says, "I don't either."

Kenstrom chuckles.

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "Yer mini isn't level 2."

Rasson says, "If it's about seige minis he already answered."

Maylan says, "You can level up mini's by using them."

Leafiara says, "They kinda have levels already. Though I'm not sure if there's a way to tell where they're currently at..."

Kenstrom says, "Ask again later then."

Razanetika attempts to kick Gutstorm!

UAF: 102 vs UDF: 512 = 0.199 * MM: 78 + d100: 38 = 53

A close miss!


Comment #8 and #9, from Lyrna: Vaalorian Territory and Blight Aid

Kenstrom exclaims, "Lyrna!"

Lyrna chuckles.

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi says, "I gots dis..."

[Roll result: 195 (open d100: 73)]

Razanetika crouches, sweeps a leg at Gutstorm and connects!

Gutstorm falls to the ground! Razanetika deftly regains her footing.

Lyrna nods.

Razanetika mutters under her breath.

Lyrna says, "I have two."

Dwi heartily says, "Oh."

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "I like da view from down here."

Speaking heartily to Gutstorm, Dwi says, "And stay down."

Kenstrom nods at Lyrna.

Speaking to Berkana, Evia says, "Gustorm is upskirting ya, better move."

Lyrna asks, "The first is probably not all that relevant to anyone but me - the elven outpost - is it considered part of Ta'Vaalor territory, generally Elven Nations or something else altogether?"

Thrassus says, "It's Vaalor territory I thought."

Dwi heartily says, "Out post....out."

Kenstrom says, "It would be considered more Ta'Vaalor territory, but, again this is a co-project thing, so we'll see how it ends up in the end result."

Speaking to Evia, Berkana says, "Note to self... wear pants to these thngs."

Lyrna says, "Mostly because I'm not allowed in Ta'Vaalorian territory and don't really want to get executed for entering..."

Leafiara mentions, "Those Vaalorians wouldn't even sign the peace treaty at Valley of Gold, unlike the other Nations..."

Lyrna says, "Little details."

Lyrna grins.

Kenstrom asks, "Second question?"

Maylan says, "I was really hoping for death, destruction, and war at that peace treaty."

Lyrna asks, "The research on ending the blight... are they accepting assistance?"

Kenstrom says, "Yes-ish."

Lyrna asks, "Ish?"

Kenstrom says, "I plan to do some more with that with Cordarius."

Kenstrom says, "I'll be getting PC's involved."

Lyrna asks, "How would a character potentially get involved with it?"

Puptilian says, "Good."

Kenstrom says, "Show up."

Kenstrom grins.

Lyrna grins at Kenstrom.

Kenstrom says, "Cordarius will be one of the main NPC's I use in regards to that."

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "Captain obvious."

Kenstrom says, "Ysharra and Raelee are also already involved with him too so that's good folks to be around or inquire with too."

Darcena drolly says, "He's more pleasant than Thadston, so thank goodness."

Leifa says, "I don't think it's that obvious."

Leafiara asks, "Is this gonna be a 'Thadston brainstorming about the mystery paragon with dozens of people at once' type of thing or an 'Osment takes people aside two at a time' type of thing?"

Lyrna nods.

Leifa says, "Sometimes it is hard to insert yourself into a storyline."

Kenstrom says, "I have no idea."

Leafiara grins at Kenstrom.

Kenstrom says, "The blight having a life of its own was not intentional."

Lyrna says, "Since Lyrna actually likes research and is good at it even though she's not much of a caster."

Kenstrom says, "Just sort of happened. Organically, no pun intended."

Puptilian says, "Like to get involved with the blight too if I can as I cared about it in Talador and the lands around the Landing...if possible."

Speaking heartily to Leifa, Dwi says, "I have some jeans like dat."

Lyrna smirks.

Thrassus says, "It obviously mutated."

Kenstrom nods at Thrassus.

Kenstrom says, "So we're winging it."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "Mhm. That sounded like an intentional pun. I won't tell Xorus."

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee whispers aloud, "He's right there."

Thrassus says, "It spoke, so we have to recognize it as a Landing citizen."

Eyona says, "Oh, no. Not puns."

Speaking to Raelee, Darcena says, "Okay Raelee."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "So he is."

Lyrna says, "Okay, so talk to Raelee, Ysharra, or be there when you're doing something with it."

Lyrna grins.

Speaking to Raelee, Lylia whispers aloud, "I think he heard you."

Lyrna nods.

Kenstrom nods.

Lyrna says, "Those were my two."

Lyrna says, "And don't go to the outpost."

Lyrna grins.

Kenstrom says, "I also need to use the forums more again."

Xorus confusedly asks, "I exist?"


Comment #10, from Evia: Collaborative Building

Kenstrom exclaims, "Evia!"

Evia blinks.

Speaking to Kenstrom, Evia says, "My idea is: something or something(s) we can build together as a town. Something we have to work steadily on to build or fix up. I am also fond of epic disasters that we as a town can/have to work on together to survive. Also may we please build a clock tower on top of Moot Hall that emote rings the hour, because reasons and I like to ask this one time per year."

Speaking to Lyrna, Raelee says, "Hint: Raelee basically lives in the Outpost. You might have to."

Evia starts jumping around like a twelve-year-old.

Speaking to Xorus, Lylia says, "Not if we wish you into the cornfield."

Lyrna says, "Different outpost."

Lyrna says, "Don't go to the elven outpost."

Maags says, "I love the clock idea."

Raelee says, "Hendoran Outpost = THE Outpost."

Evia grins at Lylia.

Radeek mutters, "I read that as: And don't go to the outhouse. I really should go back to bed."

Evia agrees with Maags.

Kenstrom says, "And then Pylasar can return and run a cord from the clock tower on Moot Hall and ride a pylon-powered wagon and shout, 'Rodnay, where we're going we don't need roads!'"

Dwi heartily says, "Clocks would require gnomes..."

Speaking to Evia, Leafiara says, "So like the Caligos Isle building, but in the Landing... I like it."

Evia laughs!

Lyrna says, "The Hendoran Outpost she'll go to."

Lylia says, "I really, really love the idea of a collaborative effort for building."

Chamorr adds his name to the jumbo list.

Leifa asks, "Who doesn't love that story?"

Maags exclaims, "Exactly!"

Evia agrees with Lylia.

Kenstrom says, "Building is something I want to do more of."

Speaking drunkenly to Kenstrom, Gutstorm says, "I want Pylasar's Cryheart suit if he is done with it."

Kenstrom says, "Like, players literally building stuff."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "If any of them show up on a flying railroad train..."

Evia says, "Like we rebuilt and built houses in town and such, but more funner."

Kenstrom says, "I did that on some occasions in the past."

Darcena asks, "Players or characters?"

Lazaryth asks, "...like the thing at EG this year?"

Kenstrom says, "During Cross into Shadows players built buildings along South Ring Road."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Ysharra says, "That was pretty interesting."

Kenstrom says, "Players built siege towers, etc."

Maylan whispers aloud, "Or a garden..."

Dwi heartily says, "Sawmills."

Evia agrees with Maylan.

Kenstrom says, "I am confident in the future there will be opportunities to build things."

Leafiara says, "Goblyn had a brief thing where we were contributing stones to Lich's Landing. That was pretty fun."

Kenstrom says, "Maybe even part of Shantytown plans."

Kenstrom says, "But I shant say what."

Kenstrom snickers.

Goldstr says, "Was fun when we built the towers at the Beach."

Puptilian says, "As long as we dont have the 5 hour to cut down a tree RT I liked the building part a lot."

Evia says, "That sounded very politician-ish."

Evia grins at Kenstrom.

Xorus says, "Rodnay gets sent back to 5085. His mom falls for him. We find out he is really an orphan because of a time paradox."

Kenstrom snickers at Xorus.


Comment #11, from Berkana: Stone and the Brass Tower

Kenstrom exclaims, "Berkana!"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Berkana asks, "Who do I have to talk to and how much do I have to pay them to evict Stone from my Brass Tower and remove his crappy furnishings?"

Kenstrom just closed the jumbo list.

Kenstrom says, "Hah. Stone is in the DEADFALL right now."

Berkana frowns.

Umbazi asks, "The what?"

Kenstrom says, "And to be fair, others have used the crap in the tower after him."

Kenstrom says, "So...."

Kenstrom snickers.

Thrassus exclaims, "He's on a camping trip!"

Berkana begins chuckling at Kenstrom!

Kenstrom says, "I'll clean it up. Maybe."

Lylia says, "Walkar was there for a little while."

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Chamorr says, "Clean da tower."

Berkana grins at Kenstrom.

Kenstrom says, "Walkar."

Lylia asks, "...or was he!?"

Kenstrom sniffs.

Maags says, "Not-walkar."


Comment #12, from Sile: Website Updates

Kenstrom exclaims, "Sile! First, welcome back old friend!"

Kenstrom says, "Now you're up."

Evia says, "And at least this way it was used and made a part of things."

Sile smiles at Kenstrom.

Sile beams!

Sile hoarsely says, "My question is... more of a request, this is probably not your specialty, but I'm sure you could forward it to who is. Could the front page of GSIV at play.net be reviewed and polished up. I feel it looks bad if new blood comes around, or even some old fogies, and see advertisings for events that happened in 2012, 2013, etc... it gives the impression that GS has died or just stopped caring, and well from being back over the last month I can tell that isn't true, I think a polished website could help in bringing new blood to the game."

Sile pants.

Kenstrom says, "I'll send that up."

Sile smiles.

Kenstrom says, "I've got nothing to do with that unfortunately."

Lyrna says, "That's a good point."

Lazaryth says, "Very good point."

Maylan says, "Goodness yes. The website needs an overhaul."

Lyrna says, "Some of it is pretty old."

Kenstrom exclaims, "I do know there's going to be some additional focus on new player experience, etc, so who knows!"

Sile nods at Kenstrom.


Comment #13, from Leifa: Fair Warning

Kenstrom exclaims, "Lefia!"

Kenstrom coughs.

Kenstrom exclaims, "Leifa!"

Leifa stares unwaveringly at Kenstrom.

Darcena murmurs, "How ruuuude."

Leifa shakes her head, totally at a loss.

Leifa says, "Like now I don't even...."

Kenstrom says, "Seriously, wow."

Leifa gazes up into the heavens.

Kenstrom says, "I type 110 words per minute..."

Kenstrom frowns at Leifa.

Dwi heartily says, "Dey look da same to me."

Chamorr heartily says, "Speechless."

Leifa asks, "I'm going to be really unpopular here (not unusual) and perhaps prudish (probably more unusual!) but...coming back to KST after an absence and walking in on some of these flashback scenes and atrocities shown did not suit my current safe-space mentality at all. Trigger warnings much? Family game? I was NOT expecting some of those visions. But generally my point was made earlier...can we have some interactive FUN? Progress? Less doom and gloom would be fantastic. It can even be good sporting battle, just not...?"

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "I think I type seven per minute."

Speaking heartily to Gutstorm, Dwi says, "I started this last nite."

Lazaryth says, "I do like a good balance of doom and lightheartedness."

Kenstrom says, "You came back at a very dark time in a dark storyline."

Kenstrom says, "There's nothing light or good about Raznel."

Darcena says, "Long may she stay dead and decayed."

Leifa says, "Indeed, and in the world, so let's lighten up."

Kenstrom says, "I would expect more fun soon. Less 'doom and death.'"

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "She was prolly misunderstood."

Evia says, "Ooh oh something fun like an annual Raznel Effigy Burning Festival."

Kenstrom laughs at Evia!

Radeek says, "Doom and death are great...as long as it's happening to the other guy."

Kenstrom says, "I like that."

Siggurd says, "There was a scene that I thought crossed a line on the rooftop, even with a doom and gloom story line."

Evia strikes a heroic pose.

Kenstrom says, "Call it Witchtide Festival."

Evia says, "Yeeeah."

Umbazi says, "We should do that every week."

Speaking heartily to Evia, Dwi says, "That triggers my fear of effigies."

Speaking to Radeek, Loamian says, "Once the blight is cured we can have our very own 'ring around the rosie.'"

Maylan says, "Midsommar Festival."

Maylan says, "Oh wait..."

Leafiara says, "Can add her to the target throwing game at Frontier Days too. And take off the Rooks in said game..."

Kenstrom snickers at Leafiara.

Evia says, "More Rooks on hooks."

Leifa says, "Yes, there were some scenes that were line crossing - violence against women - thank you for echoing that, Siggurd."

Kenstrom says, "But yes, some of my stuff is dark, it's how it will be from time to time, especially given the last villain and the next one."

Speaking softly to Leafiara, Razanetika says, "I'd rather NOT having any game using target for Raznel..."

Leifa says, "Just stuff that you would expect to not walk into in a main room of the game."

Kenstrom says, "But there will be great moments in between, light ones, fun ones, etc."

Siggurd says, "I had two friends who logged off immediately to not listen to anymore of that scene."

Chamorr heartily says, "An army of orcs invading the town, without any storyline."

Speaking softly to Leafiara, Razanetika says, "Some people still haven't learned HOW to target properly."

Kenstrom asks, "Which scene?"

Kenstrom peers quizzically at Siggurd.

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "Kill raz."

Siggurd says, "The scene with the girl on the rooftop of Moot Hall."

Leifa says, "The one where they were torturing the girl."

Kenstrom nods.

Roelaren says, "But consider the times of this land that was the way it was a lot."

Goldstr exclaims, "I'm so old school I cringe everytime I whack a Female bandit!"

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "I thought the girl torturing bit was all fake."

Razanetika softly says, "I left town when that scene happened."

Evia says, "Only that certain girl would have worked but yeah."

Rasson says, "Thadson cutting up casiiwhatsit."

Bernadette softly says, "Or me them dwerves."

Kenstrom says, "Good thing you missed Cross into Shadows."

Pukk says, "A bunch of bandits invading the town, in retaliation of all the bandit bounties."

Kenstrom says, "And Cosimagate."

Kenstrom says, "And Davard burning alive."

Kenstrom says, "The Moot Hall Casi scene was mild mannered compared to those days."

Leafiara sadly says, "And Rysus."

Evia says, "Eyeball melt flashbacks."

Leifa asks, "Okay, so we can get in trouble for saying a bad word but you can display that without warning in an open room in the game, Kenstrom?"

Radeek sings thunderously:

"Chestnuts roasting...on an open fire...."

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Chamorr says, "Keep kids out of it."

Rasson says, "I thought the abomination children were the worst of it even then it was good story telling."

Darcena says, "I will say that the storyline on Four Winds Isle, which happens during prime time, often has some brutal torture scenes and things as well."

Darcena says, "The storylines in Elven Nations tend to have less of that."

Darcena says, "In case you want to cherrypick where you go."

Umbazi says, "Maybe announce content warnings ahead of time. Like movies do. Tonight's scene will be rated R for violence, torture, etc."

Pukk says, "I'm pretty sure Kenstrom is being monitored for vulgarity all the time."

Leifa says, "There's something to offend everyone, that's the point of let's try some storylines of coming together."

Kenstrom says, "There's brutal depictions all throughout this game. I think we're just ignoring combat messaging nowadays completely."

Ysharra says, "We've seen those critical messages over and over."

Ysharra says, "And the room descriptions."

Dwi heartily says, "Heh..aim at a few necks."

Kenstrom says, "There's definitely some darker scenes in my storylines at times. I've also had some very beautiful and lighthearted ones."

Ysharra says, "If we even still keep them on at this point."

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "I still get a kick outta the gore my spells due to my targets."

Maylan says, "I like the dark and light both."

Lylia says, "There were things I found difficult to deal with for entirely different reasons; we cannot be expected to know what will cause someone trauma when even we don't know that trauma might crop up -- which is something that happened to me during part of it recently. I absolutely agree that having a story that involves building, cooperation, or solving some kind of puzzle or problem together would be good."

Kenstrom says, "Raznel's storyline had little room for any 'goodness.'"

Rasson says, "I love the combat messaging, weak strike to the thigh like being on a first date."

Kenstrom says, "Other storylines will."

Razanetika softly says, "It's a bit hard to pay attention to combat messaging when in one instance it tells you you've critted a monster only to realize in three seconds it's still standing and you have to hit it again."

Kobane quietly says, "I don't think someone under 18 has been in this game since 1996."

Shinann says, "Vipershroud is dark."

Lyrna says, "Not true."

Speaking drunkenly to Rasson, Gutstorm says, "I think the best one was where an acantha leaf went thru someones eyeball in an implosion."

Speaking to Kobane, Siggurd says, "Not true actually."

Speaking to Kobane, Loamian asks, "Are you speaking from experience?"

Kenstrom says, "And to be honest, while rating stuff may be an approach, it won't work very well for me."

Speaking to Kobane, Leafiara says, "Hey, I was under 18 in 1997... and 1998... and 1999... and more."

Kenstrom says, "Most of what I do is in the moment."

Speaking to Shinann, Ysharra says, "And the dead path with the darkwoodes and the werebears."

Kobane quietly says, "Unless any of us have kids that play now."

Leifa says, "That's not true, there is a huge influx of younger players right now."

Kenstrom says, "I never pre-write messaging."

Lyrna says, "I think assume that KST could be rated R."

Speaking to Ysharra, Shinann says, "Lots of areas are dark."

Dwi heartily says, "Chamorr's 14."

Speaking surprisedly to Kenstrom, Leafiara says, "Huh, now that's pretty amazing."

Radeek says, "I think it's up to us, as players, to bring the light back into the darker storylines. I used to see it all the time."

Eyona says, "It starts at 1am, anyhow."

Kenstrom says, "Because I do not always know when I will do an event, how that event will look, who will be present, etc."

Kenstrom asks, "Really?"

Evia says, "But mostly KST is incrediibly late too."

Kenstrom peers quizzically at Leafiara.

Kenstrom says, "Yeah. I don't prepare messaging."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "You have a quick wit and you react to things quickly. It is impressive."

Kenstrom says, "That is why the occassional typo slips in."

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "Chamorr isn't 14, he falls asleep standing up half the time, he has to be in his late 60s."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Leafiara says, "Yeah, it's just... well-presented enough, usually, that I would have thought some prepared in advance."

Kenstrom bows to Darcena.

Kenstrom bows.

Kenstrom bows.

Speaking to Darcena, Leafiara exclaims, "And that too!"

Kenstrom says, "I only prepared something once."

Radeek mutters, "So that's where to DAMMITS come from..."

Darcena says, "I bet you didn't even get to use it."

Kenstrom says, "Davard's burning alive thing."

Speaking to Darcena, Evia says, "One of my favorite Thadston lines recently was 'shut your damn mouth!'" [said to Pukk]

Speaking heartily to Gutstorm, Dwi says, "Biggums age quicker."

Speaking heartily to Gutstorm, Chamorr says, "HEY, I resemble that remark."

Kenstrom says, "Wait. no. Not his burning."

Roelaren says, "He deserved it."

Leafiara approvingly says, "That's pretty awesome."

Kenstrom says, "His trial speech."

Kenstrom says, "I prepared that one."

Speaking to Evia, Darcena says, "She had a good line."

Kenstrom waves to Sile.

Gutstorm drunkenly says, "He a biggum alright."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Leifa says, "Thank you for letting me gripe like an old lady cause I am one now."

Sile waves to Kenstrom.

Leifa grins sheepishly.

Kenstrom begins chuckling at Leifa!

Kenstrom says, "Please, you're fine."

Kenstrom says, "I welcome any and all feedback."

Sile just went out.

Speaking heartily to Gutstorm, Dwi asks, "It's like a great dane...they live wot? 2 years?"

Speaking to Leifa, Evia says, "All good points and that's why we come to this thingy."

Lyrna asks, "Besides how else would we get 'easternly'?"

Kenstrom says, "Raznel storyline was intended to be bleak."

Leifa says, "The days that I am the prude in the crowd, though, kinda strange for us all."

Speaking heartily to Chamorr, Dwi says, "Dont worry feller...we will bury ye next to Mittens."

Leifa giggles to herself.

Kenstrom says, "Beyond the Arkati, or whatever I decide to call it, will have some mixed stuff."

Pukk says, "Pun intended."

Evia says, "Threads of heaven."

Kenstrom says, "That does have a nice ring to it."

Kenstrom nods at Evia.

Darcena says, "As long as Raznel doesn't come back. It's a hard line for me. I'd have to leave the Landing."

Kenstrom says, "ToH."

Evia exclaims, "It does!"

Kenstrom says, "Raznel is dead."

Speaking to Leifa, Leafiara admits, "I didn't imagine my character being as much of a vicious killer as she is, but after all the combat messaging and exploding heads, well..."

Puptilian says, "She had her 3 turns."

Kenstrom says, "I will not jump the shark and bring back people."

Speaking to Evia, Lazaryth asks, "Threads of Dreaven, did you say?"

Kenstrom laughs at Lazaryth!

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "You'd totally jump a shark."

Speaking confidentially to Kenstrom, Leafiara whispers aloud, "You had Stormy so scared with the Walkar thing."

Leafiara adds, "But you didn't hear it from me."

Kenstrom says, "Poor dumb Raznel, she should have made Dreaven a paragon and she would have won."

Kenstrom begins chuckling at Leafiara!

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Dwi asks, "More Eviler Twins?"

Kenstrom says, "I know."

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee says, "We're getting invaded by sharks after this."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Thrassus asks, "What if they are made undead though?"

Leafiara cackles!

Maylan says, "Haaaa."

Roelaren asks, "Sharknado?"

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "With lasers tied to their heads."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Pukk asks, "Can you and Dreaven work out a schedule so you guys don't overlap?"

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee says, "Yessss."

Lylia says, "I still want to know what the hell Raznel actually wanted..."

Kenstrom says, "Maybe DST needs to get better with KST."

Darcena asks, "Chaos?"

Darcena asks, "Power?"

Kenstrom says, "Well YOU all went after Raznel."

Kenstrom says, "She was just hanging out in her bleakland."

Puptilian asks, "Left alone?"

Darcena asks, "A place to belong?"

Thrassus exclaims, "It was self defense!"

Kenstrom says, "She was a victim."

Roelaren says, "Sure."

Speaking to Lylia, Evia says, "She wanted the Mist Harbor gown and cloak sets but they were all sold out so she raged wicked."

Shinann says, "Poor thing."

Leifa says, "Cheeto is getting impeached, so we can oust the Raznel's of this land, too. It can be done."

Shinann says, "She could have been... there is a gap."

Kenstrom says, "Raznel was a tough villain."

Raelee says, "Maybe she just wanted to be left alone. Raelee can empathize. You keep bothering cranky casters and look what eventually happens..."

Kenstrom says, "I hate motives of chaos, but alas..."

Kenstrom shrugs.

Kenstrom says, "Stone will be fun."

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra says, "Someone's going to drop a house on you."

Leafiara curiously asks, "Oh, before I forget, were we actually supposed to be able to maneuver and maneuver spell the paragons to death or was that an oversight?"


Comment #14, from Umbazi: Lower Level Roles

Kenstrom exclaims, "Umbazi!"

Umbazi says, "This is in support of Leifa. I know everyone here loved the last storyline, but I'd like the next one to be more inclusive of everyone of every training. Die in an invasion or die in the Bleaklands--it's not encouraging and it's not fun, at least for me. I wish that there were more to do in KST than get blinded by screen scroll and get killed. And at level 30, I can't do anything that everyone here can't do better. So...if there was something that younger characters could do--or RP--that would be great. Puzzles or investigations, maybe. Or, as others said, building."

Speaking to Raelee, Darcena asks, "If I keep asking you for snacks, you turn into Raznel?"

Speaking to Ysharra, Raelee says, "The wicked witch didn't have crit padded armor."

Kenstrom says, "Sure."

Leafiara sheepishly says, "Oh, sorry, didn't realize there were still more on the list."

Speaking to Raelee, Puptilian asks, "So she is a future Raelee brought back to the past?"

Kenstrom nods at Leafiara.

Kenstrom cackles!

Leafiara grins at Kenstrom.

Radeek says, "Stone and fun should never be used in the same sentence."

Pukk asks, "Now for the big question. Why was Balley's scarab different than the others? What does it mean??"

Xorus says, "The Bleakworld would have been beautiful."

Leifa says, "I did not hire him either."

Roelaren asks, "Hers is different?"

Kenstrom nods at Umbazi.

Chamorr heartily says, "I been whacked so many times."

Kenstrom says, "Witchful had a lot of other events outside of invasions."

Lyrna says, "If it's any consolation, most of the time, as a slightly over cap character, much of the time I couldn't really do much either."

Speaking heartily to Umbazi, Dwi says, "They experimentin with level segregated invasions up in IMT...each gate different range."

Darcena says, "Some of the most fun I had in this game in the over ten years I've played it was the invasion of Glaoveln."

Darcena says, "I was like... level 45 or something."

Darcena says, "I couldn't do anything."

Speaking to Pukk, Rasson says, "Please don't ask that."

Kenstrom says, "I didn't get to zone things out as much as I wanted to due to some other restraints and timing issues."

Umbazi says, "I didn't see any, honestly."

Speaking to Chamorr, Pukk says, "That sounded so wrong."

Darcena says, "Except blow up a mother loving kraken with a pylon."

Darcena says, "Thank you for the special messaging on that Kenstrom."

Lyrna says, "The pylons were the best things most of the time."

Siggurd says, "I liked being able to charge the Pylons, or trying to kill Fakeheart in town and having a chance at it."

Kenstrom says, "But trust me when I say the next major storyline will utilize a lot of levels and cooperation."

Lyrna says, "If you weren't ubercapped."

Kenstrom says, "Grishom is my Endgame."

Kenstrom grins.

Ysharra says, "Praxopius and raiding Glaoveln was fantastic."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Evia says, "But to be fair to part of Umbazi's point RP is great and all but who doesn't want a buttload of exp too."

Umbazi says, "The only ones I saw were Cryheart and company going off somewhere or the town getting invaded."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika says, "As someone who came into the middle of the Raznel storyline in her young 30ish trains... I suppose what's been said as well... if it wasn't for Leafiara, I probably would have given up the second night I attended."

Leifa says, "There are sometimes smaller critters in the first waves of the battles, but these seemed to often be full force right off the bat."

Kenstrom says, "Also, I posted on the forums.."

Goldstr exclaims, "I hate hearing ENDGAME!"

Kenstrom says, "And I am trying to think of ways to do this..."

Roelaren says, "Tis good to have all of that info around."

Speaking to Razanetika, Leafiara says, "That's why I do the logs. Believe it or not, I gave up on KST after like five nights, when I first came back to the game in 2016. I remember... it can be super hard trying to catch up on years of history." [Afterward I gave it a second chance after skipping maybe two weeks, and was hooked, but it still happened.]

Kenstrom says, "But the moving deathball of 100 people..."

Kenstrom says, "Is hard."

Speaking drunkenly to Kenstrom, Gutstorm says, "You did a good job bub."

Lylia says, "Yeah, the way in which we handle invasions is probably part of the problem."

Kenstrom nods at Lylia.

Dwi heartily says, "Four deathballs o' 25."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "Multiple objectives that require that group to split up."

Lyrna says, "Although it would be nice if everyone contributing mana to a pylon got at least a little credit rather than only the person who hits it."

Umbazi says, "Yeah, the moving deathball is hard, and so is the screen scroll."

Kenstrom says, "So I'm working on some ideas."

Darcena says, "That said, you didn't do that in Glaoveln Kenstrom."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Evia says, "I thought it was SO cool the way you broke our groups that one night."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "So that's what you were thinking to yourself when those meteors hit us."

Darcena says, "And I spent time hunting the lower level boats."

Darcena says, "It was a great time."

Lylia says, "Maybe we can help with that too. It's a collaborative effort, after all."

Lyrna says, "That can be frustrating."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika asks, "That's why perhaps splitting the group up into smaller groups would be more beneficial to all?"

Maags says, "I liked how you usually had the dead vanish back to town. That helped."

Kenstrom says, "In fact one of the invasions...I had the town attacked with small stuff..."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "You were bowling with the Cryoblob."

Kenstrom says, "And no one even defended town."

Kenstrom says, "So I had to turn them off."

Kenstrom snickers.

Umbazi says, "I can't SEE because of the scroll. I've given up trying to follow KST and just read about it after Leafi posts."

Maylan says, "It's far easier to manage level zones in town versus when we are an invading force into a new area."

Leifa says, "I've seen that, where they are just wandering around."

Lylia says, "I remember that! The smaller invaders, that is."

Xorus says, "I'm just wary of having significant things happening in several different places at once and having to get it pieced together later."

Razanetika softly says, "Because everyone was following the big wigs."

Speaking to Umbazi, Maylan says, "The speech window helps a ton."

Leafiara says, "The split party nights can be pretty fun. Just... also can be a bit risky because--yeah, what Xorus said."

Kenstrom says, "But I get it, people want to be where the action is."

Lylia says, "That's also a very good point. Splitting up makes it difficult to see what's going on."

Leifa asks, "Maybe there can be 'clues' in the first few scenes of a storyline?"

Darcena says, "As you mentioned on the forum, the big problem is that you often leave out the lower level people when it comes to RP time."

Darcena says, "You don't wait to gather them in."

Speaking to Umbazi, Maylan says, "And ;kstwatch ports all monsterbold to the speech window."

Kenstrom says, "So in the future I might focus more on zones or different missions of all levels.."

Pukk says, "And getting lost in that maze there at the last."

Darcena says, "It was really frustrating for me until recent months." [presumably due to being higher level now]

Kenstrom says, "AND...then when we get to the end or NPC time.."

Cryheart says, "Or have a NPC scout yelling what is occurring where, etc."

Lyrna says, "The problem there can be that sometimes even the rolton can turn out to be capped and they eat your face."

Kenstrom says, "I allow everyone to get access."

Darcena says, "And the pylons are fun, but there's no xp as already noted."

Goldstr exclaims, "Yes the Speech Window works wonders!"

Razanetika softly says, "Communication is key to any combat effort... period."

Speaking drunkenly to Dwi, Gutstorm says, "Youre in charge of the kobold area."

Kenstrom says, "Pylons give XP."

Roelaren says, "Folks say all the time, i cant hit anythig so i just wont be there."

Speaking to Umbazi, Maylan says, "You can also give ;briefcombat a try, if you use lich."

Kenstrom says, "I'll ask on if we can adjust it."

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi asks, "Sorry did ye say sumpthin?"

Leafiara says, "Claudaro's ;kstwatch is super helpful and I recommend it, Lich users." [missed that this had aready been stated]

Lyrna says, "Only to the person who shoots."

Darcena says, "I... never got xp."

Speaking to Umbazi, Maylan says, "It cuts back on a ton of combat scroll."

Bernadette softly says, "Too bad Imma blockhead."

Leafiara says, "It puts all the monsterbold stuff in the Speech window."

Darcena says, "I would sit there entire invasions just belled."

Darcena says, "For hours."

Berkana says, "And ;spellmerge."

Speaking softly to Dwi, Razanetika says, "No one listens to me.. then chaos ensues."

Darcena says, "It was very frustrating."

Darcena says, "Heh."

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi says, "Cool."

Siggurd says, "I didn't get any from the pylon, but I enjoyed being able to participate."

Umbazi says, "No one likes feeling that they can't contribute and are just going waste deeds by showing up."

Lyrna says, "You don't if you just contribute mana, only if you are the one who fires and manages to hit."

Kenstrom says, "So yes, I'm aware of offering multiple levels things to do."

Speaking drunkenly to Razanetika, Gutstorm asks, "You shay shumtin?"

Eyona says, "That is an important mention. Adding a word to a 'velnalin' which is like level 4.. and then having it swing at you with 450 AS was uhm."

Speaking to Leafiara, Ysharra asks, "Does that work on Wizard?"

Kenstrom says, "It's why I rolled out the trees in the forest that you can fire from."

Radeek exclaims, "A bare-assed kobold runs through town waving his spinly arms and screaming "The golems are coming! The golems are coming!"

Razanetika softly asks, "Dang it who sancted?"

Speaking to Ysharra, Leafiara admits, "Not sure..."

Kenstrom says, "It's why there's rooftop rooms in town were you can fire arrows and spells from."

Eyona says, "I would not expect a plague riddled velnalin to be so powerful."

Speaking to Razanetika, Eledryn says, "For once, it wasn't me."

Gutstorm yells, "Sanctify my brethren!!!"

Kenstrom says, "It's why the Burrow Way also exists to move out of town safely if needed."

Speaking heartily to Razanetika, Dwi says, "We'll kill him later."

Eyona says, "Fool me once.."

Kenstrom says, "It's why I made 4 new siege towers."

Kenstrom says, "Etc etc."

Roelaren says, "That is great by the way."

Lylia says, "Hmm...maybe if the more powerful characters fight their way through, we can open up a way to allow lower-level characters in somehow. It'd be an IC way to explain why people didn't all move in a deathball, and it would let everyone do story things when story things were going on."

Kenstrom says, "So we'll get back to that good stuff."

Leifa says, "Thank you for what you do, Kenstrom."

Raelee says, "Might be time for someone to give a tour again..."

Kenstrom hugs Leifa, who wraps him in a warm embrace.

Darcena says, "When I teach the defense class, I do mention all those things Kenstrom."

Umbazi says, "I'm not an archer and I don't cast spells, and I just want to roleplay. I can accept that I can't kill anything in KST."

Lylia says, "I do really love all those options for being part of the fight without being at grave personal risk."

Leafiara says, "Easy way out, have Ayred open portals to the final room constantly."

Lyrna says, "Indeed! For all the complaints, we do love being a part of your stories."

Puptilian says, "Having choke points that need defending to keep the way open will split the groups up too."

Kenstrom says, "But ideally, multiple zones, multiple missions, then at the end bring everyone together for the 'ah ha.'"

Cryheart says, "Perhaps certain groups or levels could be pre-assigned to an area."

Speaking to Umbazi, Radeek says, "You don't need ranged training to shoot from the towers."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Ysharra says, "Thanks for being weird and funny."

Speaking to Siggurd, Darcena says, "I've taught a defense class that touches on every Landing defense system and how to operate it."

Darcena says, "Several times."

Kenstrom says, "I don't consider them complaints. I consider it feedback on things you all want."

Lyrna nods.

Kenstrom says, "It's how we all grow and make it better."

Speaking to Siggurd, Darcena says, "I can schedule another one for maybe January."

Eyona says, "Criticism is important, true."

Lyrna says, "In that case..."

Leifa says, "Even if you want to be creepy, just....warn us a little."

Kenstrom says, "Hey if I can impress that person that hates storylines...I must be doing something okay."

Kenstrom snickers.

Speaking to Raelee, Ysharra asks, "Same time, next year?"

Speaking to Darcena, Siggurd says, "I'd love to attend."

Rasson says, "Taken me 20 years to be able to join the front lines, well worth the wait."

Kenstrom says, "KST is 6 out of 10 times creepy."

Kenstrom snickers at Leifa.

Leafiara teasingly asks, "Only 6?"

Leifa says, "I live in Seattle. Let me know if you need help creating a safe space for millenials."

Kenstrom says, "8 1/2."

Kenstrom begins chuckling at Leifa!

Eyona says, "Ew."

Kenstrom says, "I'm the opposite of safe spaces."

Leifa exclaims, "Clearly!"

Eyona says, "Life is unsafe."

Leifa exclaims, "Implode the safe space!"

Berkana says, "Elanthia is unsafe..."

Darcena says, "Kenstrom is where I go to not have to be the preschool teacher and mom of four anymore."

Darcena says, "Heh."

Eyona says, "Elanthia is MUCH more unsafe."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "Thank you for that."

Radeek says, "Kenstrom Loggins sings "Danger Zone" Now on K-Tel records."

Lyrna says, "Without true adversity, there is no true triumph."

Dwi heartily says, "Elanthia is complicated....like then telescopes on the towers."

Kenstrom says, "Read the Little Mermaid to my daughter at night...sing Garth Brooks the River to my son at night...come into Gemstone and butcher people, animate dead babies, make people's eyeballs explode and summon blood demons."

Kenstrom snickers to himself.

Xorus says, "The original Little Mermaid is fairly brutal."

Chamorr heartily says, "Awesome."

Radeek says, "That's a well rounded life....."

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Dwi says, "Dont confuse the order of that."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian asks, "The Disney version or the original mermaid version?"

Leifa exclaims, "Some of us are rangers and we don't do the eyeball things!"

Kenstrom says, "Disney."

Kenstrom snickers.

Leifa says, "Okay, I lie, we use arrows to poke out eyeballs."


Comment #15, from Puptilian: Returning NPCs

Kenstrom exclaims, "Puptilian!"

Shinann says, "Ahh."

Puptilian chuckles.

Lazaryth says, "Catching up.. there were a couple times when there were invaders in town that were closer to my level. But I didn't join in because I didn't want to miss whatever 'special' thing was going to happen in the time pocket. So an indication/invitation of when to come back together is a good thing, if more splitting happens in the future."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Evia says, "Before I forget, mentioning, I think there was one of those big mobile defense towers stuck in the east part of town, no way for it to really go more into the center of town areas."

Speaking to Leifa, Eledryn says, "I just sing Song of Power and my own head explodes."

Kenstrom nods at Evia.

Kenstrom says, "I'll fix it."

Lylia says, "I was all worked up over the mandatory evacuation thing. Katrina flashbacks, I got all weirded out. But the animated dead babies, exploding eyeballs, and creepy scarab makeout sessions were fiiine. Just don't make me see people staying in their homes or I'll cry and get the shakes."

Speaking to Lazaryth, Maylan says, "I agree with that."

Leifa says, "Disney is more evil than anything in Gemstone."

Kenstrom nods at Lazaryth.

Kenstrom exclaims, "Agreed!"

Kenstrom nods at Lazaryth.

Speaking to Leifa, Rasson says, "I have had a spike or 2 explode an eyeball."

Puptilian says, "Ok change of pace on the questions. Some of the old NPCs like Zyndur which was left in pretty bad shape. Are you thinking of bringing back some of the smaller NPCs we not seen in a while."

Puptilian says, "Kind of miss the captain and the ship...."

Kenstrom says, "Yes."

Maylan says, "Yeah we need more comic relief now that Pylasar is lost in time."

Kenstrom says, "Zyndur has a role to play most likely in the Stone storyline."

Radeek mutters, "Ship......"

Puptilian says, "Good."

Puptilian says, "As he played a big part."

Kenstrom says, "He was pursuing the Star after all, before Stone used Rowmi to mindbomb him."

Puptilian nods.

Puptilian says, "Right."

Leifa says, "Happens."

Speaking to Maylan, Lazaryth says, "The comic relief is all on you now. No pressure."

Lyrna says, "Lyrna was increasingly understanding of Pylasar."

Kenstrom says, "I'm in a weird place with NPC's."

Razanetika softly says, "I miss the purple mage."

Kenstrom says, "My 3 main ones lately are gone now."

Puptilian asks, "As you killed them all?"

Puptilian whistles tunelessly to himself.

Speaking to Lazaryth, Maylan says, "Hey that's Pukk's job! I just get weird with everything."

Darcena says, "I want new ones that I don't have to wade through 50 million archives and discussions to figure out what archaic history I need to know."

Darcena says, "I'm greedy like that."

Speaking to Puptilian, Shinann says, "They are on vacation."

Kenstrom says, "So I'll be using some others soon, stretch them a bit."

Speaking to Darcena, Leafiara exclaims, "Cordarius!"

Puptilian agrees with Shinann.

Kenstrom says, "BUT..."

Kenstrom says, "I'm also going to try to do things a little different."

Kenstrom says, "I want to rely more on PC's."

Puptilian grins.

Kenstrom says, "And their various roles, and ideas."

Kenstrom says, "Not just always parade out an NPC to deliver something."

Kenstrom says, "So we'll see."

Puptilian says, "While I like that and agree fully, there are some NPCs I like to see what they are up to."

Kenstrom says, "I've got some ideas, seeing how it all unfolds."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika asks, "Are you taking volunteers?"

Leifa says, "I like their different personalities, to be sure."

Puptilian says, "Like the northern Prelate, Zyndur, etc."

Lazaryth says, "Sounds interesting."

Kenstrom says, "Yeah I won't NOT have NPC's."

Kenstrom nods at Razanetika.

Leifa says, "It's a marvel to watch you carefully switch between them."

Razanetika raises her hand.

Kenstrom says, "I have no idea how I do it."

Rasson says, "Can do like they did at Ebon's, pull a PC aside and give them their role, that was neat."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika says, "I like my daggers as well."

Evia asks, "What about poor Aralyte?"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Loamian asks, "Perhaps it's a disorder?"

Eledryn asks, "I've found I've had a hard time getting into storylines when they've been running since before I returned. I'm hoping that being around for the start of the next thing might help with that, but are there any thoughts on how that might be made a little more approachable?"

Xorus says, "We could give Xorus the Star and the Talon. See what happens."

Speaking to Evia, Puptilian says, "Yes i want to know too."

Kenstrom says, "Lylia used her soulstone to rescue Thadston and it snuffed out Aralyte's beacon."

Lylia exclaims, "Yes, what about Aralyte!? I always ask, and I didn't this time, but you know I still have that soulstone!"

Kenstrom says, "So...."

Speaking to Xorus, Raelee asks, "Is Xorus hiring?"

Evia says, "Maybe we can help her."

Speaking to Eledryn, Lyrna says, "Folks are pretty good about answering questions about what's going on."

Lylia removes a dull white soulstone suspended by a frayed leather cord from in her wrap.

Speaking to Xorus, Raelee says, "I'll send over my CV tomorrow."

Lylia waves a dull white soulstone suspended by a frayed leather cord around.

Speaking to Xorus, Puptilian says, "Intersting to see how the Star changed in Stone's hands."

Pukk musingly says, "So, Lylia likes to snuff out things...I knew it."

Leafiara asks, "I thought Aralyte was in the shadow valence that Teuriz took everyone to?"

Kenstrom begins chuckling at Loamian!

Kenstrom nods at Loamian.

Lyrna says, "Although there were town hall meetings for a while that were helpful."

Speaking to Eledryn, Darcena says, "Apprenticing to someone who seems to get a lot of screen time. Consistently showing up. Consistently staying on message. Sending in your background to Kenstrom."

Speaking to Eledryn, Shinann says, "Also, send a backstory."

Evia says, "She is but she is trapped there."

Radeek says, "Ahhhh...Teuriz...my buddy."

Speaking softly to Eledryn, Razanetika says, "Leafiara's logs are the best when trying to catch up."

Evia says, "And it makes us really sad."

Speaking to Leafiara, Puptilian asks, "But is she alive or not still. It's been what 7 yrs now...6?" [referring to the span of time since originally being trapped in the valence during the battle against Althedeus; only 2 years since last spotted during Keeping Up with the Kestrels]

Lylia says, "She remains stuck there. Lylia is still trying to find a way to free her. And has been for years."

Speaking to Raelee, Xorus says, "Burn of Fash'lo'nae. Check."

Roelaren says, "I liked the town meetings."

Kenstrom says, "Yes. Send a backstory. Check the Leafi Logs. Check the forums."

Speaking to Eledryn, Darcena says, "And reading all the wiki logs."

Speaking to Eledryn, Thrassus says, "I just jumped right in when I came back. It helps to think of it as you and your character both learning about what has happened at the same time."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Darcena says, "Hey, I was doing your job and had that covered."

Speaking to Puptilian, Leafiara exclaims, "I dunno, Leafi hightailed it out of the shadow valence the moment there was trouble in the Rook tunnels. So didn't observe that part!"

Lylia says, "Poor Kenstrom has to see my MYCHARs almost every time stuff happens about trying to charge the soulstone, wave it around, do something with it..."

Kenstrom says, "The next storyline is likely to be long, so I'm going to work on pacing."

Pukk exclaims, "Ooh goodie. I have my 80 page backstory all ready!"

Kenstrom says, "And chapter breaks."

Lyrna says, "All the wiki logs... that won't take a decade..."

Shinann says, "Shinann is always open to questions. No matter how she might seem. She is."

Kenstrom says, "Cross into Shadows ran 14 consecutive months."

Kenstrom says, "No break."

Speaking to Darcena, Evia exclaims, "Or like...become Darcena's squire someday sooooon!"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "That was brutal."

Kenstrom says, "I can't do that again."

Kenstrom says, "Neither can you."

Speaking to Puptilian, Radeek says, "No...that was fun."

Kenstrom exclaims, "I DO!"

Darcena says, "I'm still waiting for the Order of the Silver Gryphon to figure out who Darcena is and kick her out."

Kenstrom nods at Leifa.

Lyrna says, "Also depends on which side of things you want to be on."

Chamorr heartily says, "Everyonne fightin wif everyone."

Darcena says, "It should be full of max drama."

Lylia says, "I really, really love the idea of placing more on PCs."

Kenstrom says, "Actually, I browse the wiki not even on my lunch hour."

Speaking to Radeek, Puptilian says, "Oh didn't say it wasn't fun. Just brutal."

Leifa touches one finger to her lips.

Kenstrom says, "I'm a boss's boss now, my work day has more free time sometimes."

Kenstrom snickers.

Goldstr says, "Duskruin, EG, and a fdew others will give good break times."

Leafiara says, "Oh, before I forget... this is carried over from when Shinann asked at the OOC meeting back in May: the militia barracks are still open to everyone. Not sure if that's supposed to be the case or not."

Leifa says, "I won't tell."

Maylan says, "I do too, as long as we can get some new folks involved in addition to the regulars."

Lylia says, "Not that I don't love your NPCs, but that collaboration would be wonderful."

Kenstrom nods at Leafiara.

Kenstrom says, "For now."

Speaking to Leafiara, Puptilian says, "I like to see the Gates open to everyone and the building locked up. That way we can use the training grounds with people."

Kenstrom nods at Lylia.

Kenstrom says, "The next storyline will also provide some areas for..."

Speaking to Puptilian, Leafiara says, "I like it too. Just noticed it as I was reviewing how I did the last OOC meeting log just now." [...I said, commpletely misreading his sentence and thinking that he wanted the building itself open]

Kenstrom says, "Factions for lack of better word."

Speaking to Eledryn, Lyrna says, "It is hard to get into though."

Kenstrom says, "More missions."

Kenstrom says, "Operations for groups of people of like minds."

Speaking to Eledryn, Darcena says, "I'm not a main figure in KST by any stretch, but I'm happy to reel you into things."

Thrassus exclaims, "Shenanigans!"

Kenstrom says, "You'll see."

Lazaryth says, "I like the sound of that."

Lyrna says, "There's just a LOT."

Evia says, "I know I nearly drove Lylia crazy (more crazy) pestering for ways I could feed and help the townspeople during the blight."

Goldstr says, "Sounds real good."

Kenstrom says, "And by pacing things better."

Kenstrom says, "I can roll out things easier."

Kenstrom says, "Without a time constraint."


Comment #16 and #17, from Chamorr: Imperials and Retaliation

Kenstrom exclaims, "Chamorr!"

Chamorr lets out a cheer!

Chamorr heartily says, "Two things."

Kenstrom nods.

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika asks, "Are you planning on collaborating with Icemule at all?"

Chamorr heartily says, "Do all your NPCs have to come from the dang Empire."

Roelaren says, "Call me crazy but invasions are a good way to get the whole town involved if structured right."

Speaking to Razanetika, Radeek says, "Only when we have scotch and need ice cubes."

Chamorr heartily says, "Isn't there somewhere else in elanthia."

Speaking to Chamorr, Darcena deadpans, "Yes. Kilanirij and the Grot'karesh."

Speaking heartily to Chamorr, Dwi says, "We'll go find Kalaza."

Darcena says, "I'm not biased."

Kenstrom says, "Well I'm the Landing/Human guru sooooo."

Kenstrom snickers.

Kenstrom says, "And hey I finally dabbled with Erithi stuff for a bit."

Darcena says, "I'm sure I spelled that wrong. I have to check every time and I didn't look this time."

Berost deeply says, "He said missions. We will have a mission to invade the Mule for ... something."

Speaking to Xorus, Darcena says, "I'm tired. Don't judge me."

Kenstrom says, "Also the Empire isn't all bad. There's been a line of bad Imperials show up here."

Puptilian says, "We had the krolvin...they are not Empire."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Eyona says, "That's unfortunate, humans are so.. young."

Radeek says, "Erithis give me the creeps...they remind me of the greys."

Kenstrom says, "I've got some more good imperials planned too."

Evia says, "And the Ithzir."

Chamorr heartily says, "Awesome."

Dwi heartily asks, "Ithzir good imperials?"

Kenstrom snickers at Dwi.

Chamorr heartily says, "Second."

Shinann says, "Rodnay marries Larsya."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Evia says, "Chamorr does not believe in 'good' imperials though."

Xorus says, "I've gotten along pretty well with the imperials that have passed through the past few years."

Shinann says, "Sorry."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Pukk says, "All imps are bad."

Chamorr heartily says, "If your NPCs can attack me, why can't I attack dem back."

Lyrna says, "I thought Larsya and Xorus were already engaged."

Kenstrom says, "Because if I let you attack them every second..."

Speaking softly to Kenstrom, Razanetika says, "It'd be nice to attend a happy event.. such as a wedding..."

Xorus says, "That was binding." [an agreement made at the Valley of Gold event where Larsya was giving out bleakstones]

Kenstrom snickers.

Kenstrom nods.

Kenstrom says, "I have some happy events planned."

Kenstrom nods at Razanetika.

Speaking to Razanetika, Eledryn asks, "As long as the wedding colors aren't red?"

Cryheart says, "We got to attend an Imperial wedding."

Speaking softly to Eledryn, Razanetika says, "I should think not."

Evia exclaims, "And it went so well!"

Kenstrom says, "I also have something planned for Walkar's bones."

Puptilian stares at Kenstrom.

Cryheart glances at Kenstrom.

Raelee says, "One person's happy is another person's utter nightmare."

Kenstrom says, "And it doesn't involve demon babies."

Cryheart says, "Whew."

Razanetika softly says, "Thank the stars."

Kenstrom says, "No, like a good thing."

Lyrna asks, "As long as he doesn't become a White Walkar?"

Berost deeply asks, "Or the bones walking about trying to impale us?"

Puptilian asks, "Can we bury his sister next to him?"

Kenstrom says, "Remember his remains are missing."

Radeek says, "As long as Winston isn't running around gnawing on them..."

Leifa says, "All babies are demon babies."

Puptilian asks, "Or at least a grave stone?"

Kenstrom begins chuckling at Lyrna!

Speaking heartily to Chamorr, Dwi says, "Walker's Bones...sounds like a bourbon."

Cryheart asks, "Oh...a quest?"

Kenstrom nods at Cryheart.

Speaking heartily to Kenstrom, Chamorr says, "They're in Helga's stew."

Pukk nods firmly.

Kenstrom snickers at Pukk.

Radeek says, "A 'bone-chilling adventure.'"

Kenstrom begins chuckling at Radeek!


Wrapping Up

Lylia exclaims, "Oh! Oh, I forgot I wanted to ask you another thing!"

Kenstrom asks, "Alright. The list is closed. The hour is late...any more questions?"

Kenstrom nods at Lylia.

Pukk exclaims, "Yes I have one!"

Puptilian says, "In before the buzzer."

Lylia exclaims, "WHY do you hate magic-users and send us magic-immune things! We hates them, Preciousss!"

Kenstrom laughs!

Maylan asks, "Can a Kenstrom make a manna bread so large that not even a Kenstrom can eat it?"

Speaking to Kenstrom, Eledryn says, "I had a small thing more in general about cleric raises during in-town invasions."

Darcena says, "Accurate."

Kenstrom says, "Don't expect much of that anymore."

Speaking to Lylia, Eyona says, "Question and answer."

Kenstrom says, "Raznel's big thing was antimagic sometimes."

Pukk asks, "Have you and Hlendril made up?"

Kenstrom says, "She's dead."

Radeek says, "...or is she....."

Lylia says, "Thank you! Geez, that was one of the biggest reasons I wanted her dead."

Kenstrom says, "SHE IS."

Lylia raises her voice in merry laughter.

Darcena asks, "I better not even catch a hint of her during the New Years Eve party, kk?"

Leifa says, "Yeah, make the things squishier! We want them all to die with a big blast but also survive long enough for newbs to hit them."

Kenstrom nods at Eledryn.

Darcena says, "Seriously. I've never hated an NPC more."

Avalera asks, "She left behind some presents. Will they die off eventually?"

Maylan says, "NO."

Maylan says, "They are ours forever."

Speaking to Avalera, Lazaryth says, "What do you mean? That scarab is a -gift-."

Lylia says, "I just want to be able to do something. They don't have to be easy or squishy. But...it's not fun to be unable to do anything at all."

Kenstrom says, "Raznel is dead. There still may be some developments in relation to her."

Kenstrom says, "But she is dead."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Eledryn says, "It was a common issue multiple clerics had during invasions that someone might try to run one room away to grab a tip after a raise and get killed by something in town, rendering them unable to raise for an hour. While I know it's not something you're in charge of, is that something that might be able to be looked at in general down the line."

Roelaren says, "I like my bug."

Darcena says, "THEY BETTER NOT DIVIDE LOYALTIES KENSTROM MIDDLENAMEHERE."

Roelaren says, "She has a name."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "You know...all your NPCs have had their three turns. Poor Slim only got 2."

Kenstrom asks, "Stop tipping clerics?"

Kenstrom snickers.

Eledryn says, "Something like maybe not having the link linger if someone is raised in a traditionally safe room with no bleeding injuries."

Lylia asks, "...Does Kenstrom have a middle name?"

Kenstrom says, "Pfft. Raznel never died off."

Speaking to Avalera, Goldstr says, "Yea hard to forget Raznel with this bug in me."

Xorus asks, "Will these 'Stone points' be how the stars of Untitled Blood God project collect our royalties? It will be a tithe of money, or blood?"

Pukk asks, "Tipping clerics....is that like cow tipping?"

Kenstrom says, "Sadly I can't affect cleric spells."

Kenstrom snickers at Xorus.

Speaking to Kenstrom, Leifa says, "Man, she told you."

Lazaryth says, "Hey, this scarab is my character's only trauma. I treasure it."

Leafiara says, "No wonder Condemn killed Disean so many times."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Eledryn says, "I know you can't, more a wondering if it's something that might be mentioned down the line to someone who can."

Dwi heartily says, "I wont believe Raznel is dead til a buncha halflings start singin a song about it."

Roelaren says, "Verdey."

Lyrna says, "Unless it's Leafi who rezzes you - then she's just as happy to have the excuse to not be able to rez for a while."

Speaking to Leifa, Darcena whispers aloud, "It was my mom voice."

Kenstrom nods at Eledryn.

Kenstrom asks, "Alright. Anymore questions?"

Leifa says, "Happens."

Kenstrom says, "No? Going once...twice..."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Puptilian says, "Well thank you for what you do to let us do what we do."

Kenstrom exclaims, "SOLD!"

Kenstrom cackles!

Speaking to Kenstrom, Maylan says, "Thank you for the awesome bed time stories."

Speaking to Kenstrom, Umbazi says, "Thank you for your patience."

Leifa asks, "Are we there yet?"

Kenstrom exclaims, "And thank you for all of you!"

Lazaryth says, "Yes, thank you indeed."

Lylia says, "No questions, just a heartfelt thank you for all the time you spend with us."

Evia says, "Thank you, great meeting."

Kenstrom exclaims, "Merry Christmas everyone! See you all soon!"

Speaking cheerfully to Kenstrom, Leafiara exclaims, "Always looking forward to more!"

Lyrna exclaims, "Thanks!!"

Leifa exclaims, "DAAAD, are we there yet?!"

Kenstrom exclaims, "Buy deeds!"

Suddenly Kenstrom looms high above you, striking terror into your very soul!

Speaking to Kenstrom, Goldstr says, "Thanks for all the info."

Cryheart says, "Amen."

Kenstrom wanders off.

Shinann exclaims, "Same to you!"

Maylan exclaims, "Merry Christmas indeed!"

Maags says, "Night all. Thanks Kenstrom."

Umbazi exclaims, "Merry Christmas!"

Roelaren says, "Merry Christmas."

Lylia exclaims, "Merry Christmas if I don't see you before then!"

Chamorr heartily says, "Same to you."
