    Well this should be interesting.

    An unarmed and unarmored dwarf, not quite drunk, and a group of thugs. I hope they surrender now before he has to hurt them.

    If only my nat 2 would sunder their spirits. I have no doubt that there will be blood, or at the very least a few hurt feelings. *L*

    Where to stay

    In the IC thread, Jenya will be providing you with the names of a couple places at which you can stay. At this point you essentially have two options. For the modest price of 50 sp per week you may have room and board at a standard inn with relative safety. For the more economical price of 15 sp per week, you may have room and board at a low-quality inn, though there is a slight element of risk to your person and property because of the conditions. You may pay by the day for the higher rate of 8 sp per day and 23 cp per day respectively if you choose.

    Zarust/Goran has the additional option of living free of charge at the Temple of Lordly Might, however he must devote one day a week to services to Kord if he chooses to do so. This will be the same day each week (Godsday).

    Bohemian/Floch may continue living free of charge at the orphanage for as long as he serves as a full time guard or is actively searching for the kidnappers. Effectively, he will receive free room and board until this quest is over, assuming he wants to continue adventuring after this quest is over (which of course he will). This is functionally equivalent to staying at a low-quality inn without the risk.

    The first night is free. That will determine your current living arrangements. Indicate where you will be staying here in this thread. If at any time you wish to change your living arrangements, you may do so either here or with an appropriate post at the IC thread.

    As much as I prefer relative safety, I think Keth would choose the bare necessities, that and he doesn't have a ton of money.

    Low-quality it is.

    Goran will stay at the Temple of Lordly Might, as well as inform his superiors tonight on what he plans on doing in the days to follow. How many days is it until Godsday?

    It is presently the evening of the 20th. The next Godsday is on the 25th.

    Rhun, it looks like we aren't going to hear from Vertex. If you'd like to jump in, please do.

    In the meantime, I am accepting calls for other alternates. We currently have five players. I'd like to have at least six with one or two waiting in the wings to take their place if one needs to drop out for some reason.

    Hi, airwalkrr!

    How about a barbarian? This is a character concept I came up with, and I've used the point-buy option.

    Hope you like him.

    (Of course, if there were a tribe of barbarians somewhere nearer, I could rework the background a bit, if you'd rather have him be a local.)

    Age: 16
    Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 180lb
    Eyes: blue
    Hair: blonde
    Skin: tanned
    Appearance: Tall and tanned from outdoor living, with hair bleached blonde by the sun, Hunolf Hjordsson is the archetypal Ice Barbarian. His voice is deep, with a Northern burr to it, and his laughter roars out at the slightest cause. Only one subject wipes away his ready smile – the treachery of Hraggi Oathbreaker.

    Background: Hunolf is rarely seen without his great axe close to hand. Hrungar’s Kiss was the birthgift his father, Hjord Hrungarsson, laid beside his firstborn son, just as Salmonskin was laid alongside his twin brother, Hreir.

    Hrungar’s Kiss - his grandfather’s greataxe - was feared throughout the northern reaches, and as a boy Hunolf would struggle to wield the heavy weapon as a hero should. Hreir would laugh at him and flash, shimmering, through the martial dance of an Ice Barbarian warrior, Salmonskin seemingly his own hide, his slender blade singing in the air as he sought the weak points of an imaginary foe’s armour.

    Hunolf would laugh with him, and watch, entranced, then turn again to his own heavier dance of death with the fearsome foeman.

    Although he nearly took his own leg off once or twice, his father never forbade him the blade for, as he said, a warrior’s weapon should be more familiar to his hands than his wife was. Hunolf nodded and learned, glad to have such sage advice – but he also smiled to himself when he realized that his father never said this when his mother was around.

    The boys’ education continued apace, and all would have been well with the house of Hjord, if only Hraggi Oathbreaker had not decided to lair in the region of their longhouse. This Hraggi was a traitor to the Kingdom of the Cruski, having helped the Stonehold scum to defeat His Most Ferocious Majesty, Lolgoff Bearhear in a massed battle. Hraggi fled, and on his way to Stonehold to claim his reward, encountered the boys as they were out hunting. Laying an ambush, he and his men attacked the unsuspecting lads, who were in advance of the rest of the party. Hraggi himself struck down Hreir, who was holding off two of his men.

    It was as he saw his brother die that Hunolf discovered that he was a baresark, one of the raging warriors rightly feared by all who opposed them. With an inhuman scream, he sprang forward and cut down one of the companions of Hraggi, then wounded the other nigh to death. Then, as he was raising Hrungar’s Kiss to deal death to the man writhing in agony on the ground, his head exploded with a bright white light that banished the red haze of rage, then was itself banished by unknowing blackness.

    He awoke to find Hraggi and his remaining men fled, the other members of the hunting party in full hue and cry around him, and Hreir lying dead upon the mold.

    Hraggi disappeared after that – reportedly seen once in Stonehold, and then no more by any man Hunolf could find in his travels. For he had left home and family, left land and lord, on a sworn quest to find his foe, cut him down, and eat the still-warm heart from his corpse. And as an earnest of that, Hunolf had sworn that no other meat should pass his lips, until he made a meal of Hraggi’s heart.
