I'm sure you guys could work out a "superfriends team up for great justice" scene IC over the boards before next game. Spread the plot love!

Player Initiated Plot Request

 

1) Who is planning on going. -- Most or all of the HoCB. At the very least the three Snow Goblins, but more likely all of us.

 

2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish. -- Need to have a discussion with other nobles from Gersh regarding The Great Plan ™. I'll be inviting down a number of them in the next few months, but don't plan to meet with more than one at a time. I'm not going to elaborate more except to the GM that takes this, so please PM me if that's you.

 

3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important. -- I'll be using the imminent bachelor party of the Iga as the excuse to begin bringing other Daimyos and Shogun down from Gersh. I will relay these invitations through Chamberlain Meng of Clan Wei.

 

4) What shift are you planning to go do this. -- Saturday afternoon is preferable.

 

5) These requests must be in 2 weeks before game. -- I'm late. OTOH, all this takes is a few NPCs with pretty garb for prep.

 

6) We will not make any assurances or promises -- Uh-huh.

(for the record I didn't kill them either!)

Player Initiated Plot Request

 

Wanted to know if any GMs (ya you new GMs I'm looking at you) wanted to pick this up.

 

1) Who is planning on going. -- Sentinels (Commander Mcfathom, Guardsman Richter, Sentinel Telmar, Sentinel Marcus, and Sentinel Mordekai. Maybe one or two others.

 

2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish. -- Either attack the supposed bandit stronghold/hideout (location up to GM) or spring a trap for said bandits.

 

3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important. -- GOAL: Make Pinedale a safer place. Realistic GOAL: Kill/Capture bandits so at least those can't attack us again. Sentinels and Southern Cross were attacked by bandits that got away with lootz. Banditry has become more organized and bandits are more powerful. By taking down Bandits (either by capturing them or killing them) and their Leader hopefully the amount and power of the bandits will be reduced. One could at least hope. Richter, Miriel, and Mordekai were attacked during Feb feast as well by a large number of banditos and Mordekai was killed (revived later after spending 15 minutes in the snow, just saying). Some of the bandits that attacked the Sentinels/Southern cross would be nice to have.

 

4) What shift are you planning to go do this. -- Either Sat 2 or 3 (Sentinels Shifts) in June or September.

1) Who is planning on going. -- Octavius and Dren. Narene may be interested in this as well, but we havn't contacted him reguarding it.

 

2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish. -- We want to find this Farmer that brought us out to the piceans and have a chat with him. We want to try to convince him that moving out of pinedale, or atleast not talking about what happened would be in his best interests using bribery or possibly some force.

 

3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important. -- GOAL: Farmer that lead us to the Piceans' nest during the april event. He lead us to the site where we found two defenceless piceans. They were killed and we left and the farmer was pleased.

 

4) What shift are you planning to go do this. -- we PC shift 3 and 4 so eaither of those shifts... It doesnt matter to me. Not sure when Narene PCs.

That's funny, I could've sworn you were one of the PCs I captured as an NPC friday night... Would you prefer I waltz over with 13 monstrous from abomination hitting for elven steel and poison stun and settle our differences? :) I'm not doubting you and an army couldn't take down Octavius and I... I'm just sayin' don't bring a knife to a gunfight. lol

Player Initiated Plot Request: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

 

Through interrogation of a captured Shinobi (thanks to Azrael), Iga learned that the 117th Lord of House Iga was given a scar as a warning from this same clan of Ninja. As this is a story that he was never told, he is going to request more information from a being who was there: One of the House Liches, probably Hol'Shebol (as described here). I imagine this will be a thing where we meet him, escort him into town, have our sit down, and have him leyline away when he's done.

 

1) Who is planning on going. Regarding the escort quest -- Most likely, the full court of the HoCB as well as select members of House Slatestone (remembering the 8 person cap), as appropriate. For the dinner, I'd imagine all the nobles would be there, maybe Miles if we have it in the Inn, and a few retainers (Samurai Catalus assuredly).

 

2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish. First, to get information that will help us understand the goals of the Shinobi. Second, perhaps this will be a moment where the Great Plan will be discussed and intelligence gathered, an ally retained, etc. Last, there may be questions of "How do we destroy a Lich/Al'Carn" asked... though I can't imagine that a Lich would take this as anything less than an insulting question to ask. Plus, the whole thing has the potential to explore another aspect of weird Snow Goblin culture: How do the living and the undead interact in the culture? I don't see this as a fighting plot, unless Iga has to protect his distant undead relative. RPwise, Giovanni may have fun RP in talking to a Lich, this may be as close as Jade will ever get to "meeting the undead in-laws", Daizo may have met the Lich in his living years, Cori's new PC may be freaked the hell out by having a talking skeleton come for polite tea, etc etc etc. This probably won't help our reputation with the town any. Alas.

 

3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important. The particular Lich in question is described in the blog entry a little bit, and I have only vague ideas about the 117th Lord of House Iga. I'd be willing to work with whatever GM to flesh these NPCs out a little bit, while leaving enough wiggle room for surprises, the plot to go off, etc.

 

4) What shift are you planning to go do this. As it involves Undead, I'd imagine it would have to happen Saturday night shift, at the September 2009 game.

 

5) These requests must be in 2 weeks before game. Done.

 

6) We will not make any assurances etc.. Understood. What's the fun in playing if you know it will all work out in the end? :P

Player Initiated Plot Request: Moving Out

 

After speaking with The Vleanish Representative, Giovanni is worried about the continued safety of his family, and does not like the idea of their continued dwelling in Vlean benefiting his enemies there. With his family history of having ties to Terrans, his thought while speaking to Lord B. was that perhaps he could get them out of Vlean, and into Terra. To this end, he needs to build some status in Terra that can't be hamstrung out from under him easily.

 

1) Who: At least Giovanni. Possibly the rest of the HoCB.

 

2) What: Perhaps he could help some Terran noble. He's helped one once, a while back. If the Terran noble was from the clan that is entwined in the VillaTerra family history, all the better.

 

3) History: See above and Giovanni's background.

 

4) When: September during the day? October? I'm not picky. Sooner is good.

Player Initiated Plot Request: Three Dragon Ante Tourney

 

After Jason learned about the game Three Dragon Ante from a traveling dude he bought his own deck for practicing purposes. The traveler suggested that he start up a tournament but he didn't say when. Jason wants to take it upon himself to run a tournament. NOTE: I have no idea if I'm stepping on toes so that's why I'm posting this here. If there is a specific plan to have this happen through NPCs then disregard me.

 

1) Who: Up to 6 people with 50 coin

 

2) What: Play to win.

 

3) History: People have money. Let's start moving it.

 

4) When: Perhaps as a post Iga wedding activity. Might work.

1) Who is planning on going. - Maeve. Possibly Ambrose and another Oddfellow if they wish.

 

2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish. - Talk to the male Terran (Schuyler's NPC) that has come looking for Ajax/info on the Prophets of the Perfect Sword. I want to have a private discussion with him (and only him), pop a truth serum each so that we both know the other is speaking honestly (provided by myself), and hammer out some of the tension between his group and the Oddfellows. We are thinking that having this discussion over Ajax' grave (which we misled them about before) would be appropriate. There is another goal in mind with this; offer him something in return for possibly infiltrating/seeking more information (such as leaders, location, etc etc) for the Oddfellows.

 

3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important. - The Terran Schyuler has been playing that stopped by in May and June. Since we will be bringing one or two additional people to guard perhaps he will want one or two of his own people as well. Apparently they walked back to Terra but didn't have enough info to learn anything more so they came back to get said info from us. We were tight-lipped even though Marius did his best to mediate.

 

4) What shift are you planning to go do this. - First thing Saturday morning September event. I believe that the Terrans are staying at the Inn, so perhaps walking out to the grave from there would be best since he doesn't know where it is or that Maeve wants to meet with him.

I don't know if there were plans to do the PIP I submitted this event, but if possible I'd like to postpone it until October or later. A lot of what we were planning on doing with Theo is dependent on Marius' PIPs for September. Sorry for the late notice.

1) Who is planning on going

Richter and the rest of the Sentinels

 

2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish.

 

We are hunting the man who betrayed Richter's family, killed many of their bodyguards, and performed a ritual corrupting his father's body turning him into an undead abomination. If we encounter him we will either try to capture him to send him back to Germinas to be executed, or to execute him there in Pinedale.

 

3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important.

 

Rasmuse, a master necromancer, specializing in necromantic rituals. He's also a worshipper of Darkness. Last seen with long black hair, he fled Germinas shortly after turning the late Vormav into the undead.

 

4) What shift are you planning to go do this.

Friday night and/or Saturday night

 

5) These requests must be in 2 weeks before game.

---Check

"That's thirty minutes away. I'll be there in ten."

 

1) Who is planning on going

 

Vincent "Travolta" McFathom and Iga "Jules" Shinzen

 

2) What you're planning on doing, and what you hope to accomplish.

 

We are hoping for Marcellus Wal'Carnus, a coin purse that says Bad Mother Fucker on it, and an Ogre Gimp's semen.

 

Okay, not really. Essentially, we want a buddy cop/criminal adventure. We're going to go out hunting, and we'd like to have action, and comedy, and pathos, and what not. Think the Odd Couple with swords. Our PCs have a lot of respect for each other, even though we are on opposite sides of morality/gods/race sometimes, and would like the chance to be put into each other's debt and context. The specifics and such we're pretty open on. We just want a duo adventure.. figure the hook could be a deer walking around town that we have to track down. After that..? Don't know.

 

3) Any relevant history or NPCs that are important.

 

Vincent has several oaths made to Iga regarding not killing his wife, Iga respects Vincent's strict military mindset and allegiance to his deity, but McFathom is a septon that has been chosen by his god and Iga aims to be a godkiller. Iga offered McFathom a samurai position if he would renounce the Soldier, McFathom declined. Also, one day Iga will duel McFathom to the death just to insult the Soldier, once McFathom has enough glory. McFathom is a drunk, I think, and it hurts Iga to pee. Matter and antimatter, and yet, lots of man hugs. Also, we occasionally go hunting. Mine away.

 

4) What shift are you planning to go do this.

S A T U R D A Y, NIGHT

 

5) & 6): Check and roger that.
