OOC: Okay, I'm mucking up all over the place! This is the post! The<br>other I resent is my previous one<br><br>>>> [Vesper]<br>>>> Nodded, "Louissa it looks like who, you were about to say something?<br>>>> Are they dangerous ?"<br>>>> [/Vesper]<br><br>>> [Louissa]<br>>> "No.... well maybe, maybe not." Louissa replies. "The one... person...<br>>> sounds like a dwarf. That might mean good dwarf or bad dwarf. They are<br>>> asking for help, though. What should we do?"<br>>> [/Louissa]<br><br>>> [GM]<br>>> Somewhere off to their left, or no, is it their right, or perhaps<br>>> behind or in front, they hear some distant shouts, and then the sound<br>>> of what is likely the pursuing ATV braking to a halt. They cannot,<br>>> however, see anything.<br>>> [/GM]<br><br>>> [Louissa]<br>>> "I don't feel right about leaving anybody in this fog."
she says. "But<br>>> I think we've got to move."<br>>> [/Louissa]<br><br>> [Alex]<br>> "What you put me through," Alex responds. "Barely get to civilization<br>> and immediately back into the fire. Even in the CS we usually got some R<br>> and R."<br>><br>> Even so, does not stop her from following cautiously. She will also scan<br>> through her radio to see if anybody is transmitting.<br>> [/Alex]<br><br>> [Vesper]<br>> "Then we try and rescue them. Keep the ATV running."<br>> He prepared to head out and wave the two down. "They can ride outside<br>> if we really don't trust them but I agree if we can get them out of here we<br>> should."<br>><br>> He handed Alex the iron spearhead. Whispering to her, "Whatch the girl<br>> you might need this."<br>> [/Vesper]<br><br>> [Ted]<br>> "Nor do I," Ted agreed. "Does the road continue toward the tower? We will<br>> be safer
mounted than on foot."<br>> [/Ted]<br><br>OOC: The road runs right past the tower. They are stopped quite close<br>to the tower now.<br><br>[GM]<br>While Louissa and Ted remain nervously inside the ATV, Vesper, with<br>Alex behind him, make their way to the tower. As they get closer, they<br>can see that it looks to have suffered considerable damage at some<br>point in the past, and that less capable individuals have attempted to<br>repair it with some duller, though still black substance. The steps up<br>are narrow [OOC: perhaps 18 inches wide] and many are cracked or<br>missing. Even worse, the heavy mists have left a slick layer of water<br>on each step, and the steps themselves are as smooth as glass. Ascent<br>will be difficult and treacherous, descent even worse.<br><br>The closer the two adventurers get to the tower, the more they sense<br>something like a sub-sonic vibration. The ground under their feet<br>seems to be humming.<br><br>Ted and
Louissa are watching, trying to be ready if and when something happens.<br><br>Finally Vesper is at the steps. The platform is far overhead, and<br>other than flying, their seems no obvious way up other than the steps.<br><br>In the distance can still be heard shouting.<br>[/GM]<br><br>--<br>Aaron Clausen<br><a ymailto="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" href="mailto:email@example.com">firstname.lastname@example.org</a><br>_______________________________________________<br>Taocowpbem mailing list<br><a ymailto="mailto:Taocowpbem@zork.net" href="mailto:Taocowpbem@zork.net">Taocowpbem@zork.net</a><br>http://zork.net/mailman/listinfo/taocowpbem<br><br><br> </div> </div> </div></body></html>
