Since Cameron hasn't been responding to anything I've been saying to him and I know you lot are tired of waiting, I've gone ahead and made everything set to go.

Wheeee~!  I get to RP again!

EDIT: Oh just to clarify, is The Gorger on the same level as the rest of the beasts?  Are all the players in one area now?  I'll modify my post with any new information. :)

all beasts are on the bottom level of the ship, just above the bottom of the hull to make sure nobody has a fit of rage and punches a hole in the bottom. Tamers are watching over them.

Your post is fine. Walter was headed down there.

I am new to RP boards and even though I read the rules I am not certain of a few things so If Iíve written something out of line do tell. Iíve made a few assumptions with my post namely: there are private cabins for the personnel on the ship and that the tamers allow the werewolves to howl at the moon :D.

Oh yeah, that's all fine. Mainly the Tamers are keeping the beasts in line to make sure they don't go on a rampage in case someone slips.

I'm not ignoring anybody with that last post, I just felt it required immediate attention, what with a beast being released into the upper decks.

Since we are going to start a fight soon I need to address the issue of how my spells will affect The Gorger? My buff is supposed to invigorate the body and increase its performance but since he is mostly a rotting corpse (if I got it right) I wonder how that will work.

Well technically he's still somewhat alive, and can feel pain. Spells can still hurt him, and can kill him if he's not careful, but he can take more hits than the average human, to be certain.

So since he's technically alive, that would be a yes?  WHEE super buffs and heals!


On another note: The Gorger technically couldn't make half the sounds he's making in his speech without lips.  It's okay though.  He's a supernatural creature, so his voice is like... magic, or something. >_>

On another another note: this character is way for fun to RP than I thought he would be.

The Gorger is definitely making it hard to find any empathy for it.  You're doing quite a good job making him all appetite :)

Hope the lot of you are enjoying my narration. I'm trying to put out the importance that Walter and Alucard will have later on without making the story centric on them. You are all the main characters. Alucard is sort of the Deus Ex Machina, and Walter is the Mentor.

Yes, the story is moving along quite well.  I'm having a fun time trying to determine how Sun Wu actually fits in this whole thing. 

I'm very eager to start the first battle :D

It might be useful to explain how you would like combat to flow before we muddle all your plans in three posts.


Edit: meh that didn't come out the way I wanted it to.  You're doing a great job for your first battle here!

Now that I think about it, there should be duration on my buff. I remember that I read in the Legion Immortalis  OOC  thread, that  Faidth used dice to determine the duration of a debuff. Should I adopt the same approach?

A static amount of turns (I don't know how fast paced or long these battles will be) would take the risk portion out of it and allow you to more carefully strategize, but dice are always a fun mechanic for spells like that.  Might suck if you score a critical miss though.


I like the character combination we have going.  The character development will be good times. :3  Good, neutral, evil.  Pious, disciplined, hungry.

The battles will be pitched and violent, but not eternally long. Maybe a half-dozen posts, which, at the rate we're going, will be done in not a lot of time, will make up my narration of it. Do what you will, and I'll present important targets and critical points in the fight.


As for the duration, it's your spells, it's entirely up to you what you want to do with them.

Alright so dice it is. And since it is a buff  I will go with 1 to 6 based on the 6 sided dice.

Well The Gorger got 2 turns :D

2 turns to slaughter stuff.  Check!

So when it says the boarding planks were readied, does that mean we can engage now?  And if so, what's on the other side?

Well we all had a turn to prepare, so now we wait for the opening post of the battle.

Edit: Failed to check board before posting.

they're readied, not dropped. You probably won't be the first ones off the boats. Get yourselves ready, and don't tick off this turn as one of the two that the buff lasts.
