The caster gave Jax a look of disdain.

"Slowly."

Toothry took the gem and, producing a piece of parchment from his cape, wrapped the gem up so it was easier to grip. He placed it between Victor the Doombat's claws, who began to furiously flap his wings, attempting to get air born.

"Even with the penalty to his move for over-encumberment, he should still be able to get far enough to serve our purpose.

Adreena raises a questioning brow " Who get paid for taking a gem ? The gem itself was payment. A retainer for a future job should we survive this one. He's a crafty one that D'Step...if indeed it was he. He called himself Sy. "


" I should have been suspicious sooner but it was only your mention of Acrobats that sparked it or the gem would have been lost at sea during last turn "

" Mayhap the Transylvito's plan will work and D'Step will think we only stopped to orient ourselves but I would not bet on it. If I were him I'd search the area of last contact to the known move capabilities of the vessel. " She nods an acknowledgement to Stephanie . " So I hope we're at least another days journey from our mission. And I hope you're prepared for a raid here...or at least to cost him a scouting party. "


OOC Nice one Lipkin !........... ;) Join and immediately railroad the GM :lol: /OOC

[EDIT] OOC again.... Can we get Toothr'y stats, possession and spells so we know what we're working with :mrgreen: /OOC

"Yes, Sy D'Step, the acrobat Count."

"I fear the parchment may get wet and the gem fall near by."

"Do what you want with it, but I want it a long way from here."

"Former Transylvito. And at the very least, we separate ourselves from the gem. should the parchment get wet, and the gem slip free, it will at least happen on alternate path to that of our own. The gem is already here. This island is either discovered or it isn't, and whatever we do will not change that. However, if we were to toss it over the side as we travel, they will have knowledge of our direction. If we give it to Victor, he can lead a false path. Additionally, he can warn of us being followed as long as I am within 20 hexes of him. "

ooc/ Wasn't trying to break rules. New to play by posts and rping in general. Also, never said Victor managed to take flight, so if LT was against it, the gem could indeed be too heavy, and then Toothry gets the character trait of being overly confident, which makes sense with his backstory. Also, didn't know the gem was supposed to be large. It's size wasn't described, only it's value. I thought it was maybe the size of a strawberry, but I guess it was quite a bit larger. Woops.

OOC Don't sweat it . I was ragging on you a bit as the newcomer :twisted: not trying to suggest you broke any rules. ;) Think of it as an initiation.... as my sort of welcome to the group :P /OOC

" Aye I'd go with that plan, if we can spare 5 hexes move on Stephanie tomorrow. Have her move at angles to our destination and then have his pet take the gem on a detour. That should give them a wide enough area to search. It might also be a benefit to plant a little welcome at the point where the gem drops. If you've got a wreck of a boat or some lumber to spare we can send them a false trail.

"Right." Jax nods. "Good plan. We go a little out of our way nextturn, and let the bat continue the tangent."

"Time for the larger plan."

Jax gathers the three stacks in the central hall, and oulines the mission.

"Our target is the city of Castria. Castria is a heavily fortified level 3 that stands on the border between Quelshland and South Quelsh. These two empires have been at war for almost two hundred turns, and neither has been able to gain the advantage. South Quelsh has hired Balen to take the city, cut the Quelshlandian supply lines, and expose their legions to destruction."

"Our part, or should I say your part, will be to enter Castria by covert means, seize the garrison, and capture the city."

"My part is to deliver you to some hexes nearby and arrange for your entry to the City via the tunnel zone. Each stack will be entering seperately. Our best hope of success is to enter the garrison zone with as little fuss as possible. Most of the defenders will be on the walls, or guarding the air zone. If the garrison falls, they will all become prisoners."

"We expect that the garrison and tunnel zones are only lightly defended."

"Ten stacks will be making the assault. I will issue you all with a token to signify your allegiance, and a password in the event you meet other stacks. The password is 'Sweeping Dwagon.'"

"Balen will be standing by near the city. As soon as it falls, he will move in with enough reinforcements to hold against whatever the Quelshlanders send."

"Questions?"

WIildthwing raises his hand timidly "How big are 'tunnels'? Will Wildthwing fit? Can enemy see entrance to tunnels from walls?"

Jax laughs.

"Do you have delusions of grandeur? You should fit. Might be tight in places, though."

"The entry to the tunnels are outside the city hex. There are a lot of mines around Castria."

"Light Infantry, mainly. Marbits, Hoomans, that sort of thing."

"If there's nothing else, the turn is ending. Stack Seven, I want you to post guards for the nightphase. We fly early nextturn."

No, daylight is divided up between all the sides. Once the last side ends their turn, night falls.

"Yes and yes. Both. I've never been there myself."


(The night time thing does not seem definitive to me. Just because it is night to your side doesn't make it night to all sides. Isn't time relative to expended move?)

The night phase passes without incident, and the new dawn breaks over Lord Wye Island with sudden "pop".

Jax calls the stacks to order, watches as they gather their gear, and climb on board Stephanie. She gives a particular glare to stack seven, and a very slight nod to Adreena.

"Let's roll."

Stephanie flaps her wings and tail and the whole unlikely caboodle launch into the sky, headed south.

After a few hexes' journey, Jax walks back to meet A'ah and Adreena. "Now might be a good time."

No, night is it's own thing, taking place between the last side to take it's turn, and the first. It was stated somewhere, I think maybe in one of the text updates, or maybe a Klog.
