    The Jade Frontier (DM: Ukingsken, Judge: Lord Sessadore)

    Just thought I'd lay out a few things that seem pretty standard around here so we all are on the same page

    1) I'd like to see everyone post at least once a day. That just ensures that the game carries on at a reasonable pace. Although from what I've seen so far in the tavern if I can get at a computer a few times early in my morning we might get a lot done that time of day.

    2) Rolls should all be done on invisible castle. In the event that it's down we'll either wait, or in case of a prolonged downtime we'll find another solution.

    3) I'd ask that everyone include a link to their character sheet either in an sblock or in their signature. Alternatively some people have or are fond of the character summary. Either works for me so long as I dont find myself hunting for someones sheet.

    4) If you'll be away for any length of time let me know ahead of time so I know what kind of NPC action to take. This is especially important in combat, and if you're especially slow in responding I will just NPC your character for a round to keep things rolling (don't stress, when I say especially slow, I mean more then 2 days).

    5) Everyone try and pick one color for their characters voice. I've chosen purple for me, and unless I have more then one NPC in a convo I'll stick to that.

    6) Have fun. We seem to have ended up with a fairly non traditional party so we may end up with some unusual challenges. Any questions just get in touch with me.


    The Jade Frontier

    Darkness stirs on the edges of the Kingdom of Jade. For five dragonborn generations the Kingdom has struggled to recover under the unwavering leadership of The Platinum Shogun the Kingdom has fought back the shadow and now stands strong. However the Iron Legion is spread thin, with enemies on many fronts. He has turned to outsiders to quietly investigate rumors and convoy disapperances in an outlying community where rumours abound of drak rituals and abnormal monstrous activity.

    The embassy sticks out from the other buildings like a thorn in a rose garden. The entire building looks like it was designed for battle not diplomacy. Sharp, hard angles compose most of the blocky structure, and the only windows are small arrow slits.

    A large Iron door offers the only access, and two dragonborn guards in full plate mail stand guard on either side carrying well notched battle axes.

    As you approach the door, the guards snap to attention and in perfect unison demand:

    State your business.

    Oh! Cheysuli jumps a little at the sudden attention of the guards and their order. Um... I seem to be a little early, must have been four bells, not three. Don't worry about me my scaley fellows, you just enjoy the sunshine; that's what i'm going to do until my friends get here.
    She looks about for somewhere to sit a while that is within view of the embassy entrance. Hoping to spy tree to lay in; or at least grassy noll to lie upon and watch the sky, while she waits for the others to arrive.

    Mr Bricks strolls up to the embassy so nonchalantly that barely anyone noticed his arrival until he spoke, " 'Ardly subtle, are they? If that's how they build their embassies what are there fortresses like? Only us then? Ah well, I suppose we wait. Just a shame I didn't have me deck of cards and folding table with me, we could have had a nice friendly game of 'find the lady' ".

    I think you'll be allowed in with us , Fireinthedust has stood down and I don't think any one else has laid claim to the game. So, a big hello from me

    Yes Malanore we are glad to have you along! And I myself am on GMT -7 or -4 depending on whether I'm at work or at home. So in theory every morning when I wake up there will be a mountain of posts. Which could go well or not.


    Cheysuli
    You examine the area surrounding the embassy and realise that there are no trees or vegetation of any sort within almost 10 metres of the building. However there is a small garden and pond near the center of the square surrounded by benches. You also catch a fleeting glimpse of 4 more dragonborn through the arrow slits above the gate.


    If you have no business with the embassy please step away. You may await your companions there.

    He points out the benches in the center of the square then resumes his post.

    Mr Bricks sits on one of the indicated benches and almost becomes part of the background, there but just not interesting.

    Good afternoon.. Mister Bricks was it? Chey smirks at his genial manner. You are quite a jolly one aren't you. I'm afraid i don't know that game, nor any card games for that matter. It's nice that there is at least small places for the Spirits amidst all these buildings is it not? She gestures at the small garden.

    Half day-dreaming Chey sofly asks:
    Do you know much about this Jade Kingdom? I heard someone say it was quite far away, will it take long to get there do you know?

    Malanore
    I think you should definately be here, The party lack a full-healer so you'll fit right in

    Patronis falls in behind his new-found companions as he looks about at the embassy and other attractions in the area before settling into speech once more.. "Everyone have everthing they need for a journey?.. One can never be too careful...." utters the warlock with a smile in a low... dark.. yet calming voice...
