    Hacker walked off from the table a long time ago, so how is your character doing that? If you're going to role-play, respect the narrative. Hacker walked up, made his spiel, and walked off. Suddenly, Carolina is coughing in his face, Raiyek is making a long speech, and Kruk is spilling drinks on him. If your character is going to do something, then don't invalidate my character's actions to make it happen. (How would you like it if I posted, 'Hacker steps out of the way and none of the booze touches him'?) Initiate something and have it fit into the timeline of the events.

    About the only thing that fits is Raiyek's response, and it only works if he's calling to Hacker across the room. Hence, Hacker is ignoring him.

    Egads! I see where this is going, and want no part of it. Consider Carolina's actions graciously retconed; she will sit there and happily absorb Hacker's verbal assault and do absolutely nothing about it.

    KenHood, you are absolutely right. My bad. I should have read your post more carefully. It was my assumption that you were close to Raiyek as he was talking to you. I was wrong.

    Sorry Ken. Mind if I retcon Raiyek going over to Hacker to say his piece, then leave?

    Seeing Hacker's indifference, Raiyek decides to leave him alone. "Palladys bless your exploits, Seven Rabbit." With that, he goes back to the table where Carolina, Kruk, Grim, and Georg are sitting.

    7 Rabbit looks back and forth between Raiyek and Hacker. "Hmph, not very inspiring," he mutters to himself, just barely loud enough to be heard. "Maybe not the Leader after all. This is hard." He turns towards Hacker and says, in a louder voice, "Excuse me, sir. That was a friend of mine, and I think I'm going to join him."

    He turns and hurries across the room. "Kruk! Raiyek!" he calls happily. "I see you've been adventuring without me. I'm glad I missed that one."

    I've no problem with giving or taking crud, but if you're gonna do it, do it right. (I'm the guy who asked his party to let his character die because he thought it was better roleplaying, remember?)

    Hacker tosses his sodden cigarette on the floor and lights another one. He continues to pluck his banjo. "Well, that was a gawds-***** waste of alcoholic beverage. Decent folk would throw a punch or draw a knife to make their point. I reckon this here generation of adventurers have fallen far from the heights of their forefathers. The glory has de-*****-parted."

    "Hands off, there, fella. As you can see," the gnome says, nodding towards a bottle of whiskey, "I gots my own **** bottle, and I am sensing a gawds-***** degree of insincerity in your offer of assistance."

    Without missing a beat, Hacker says, "And he who is full of *****, smells like *****." He makes a point of leans towards Kruk and sniffs, then he recoils waving his hand in front of his nose, somehow making the gesture encompass the other adventurers recently returned from the sewer. The shocked patrons of the bar break up into raucous laughter.

    Hacker leans forward to Kruk and shares a lopsided grin, a feral gleam in his eyes. In a soft voice, he growls, "That all you got, boy?"

    "Last I checked, I never said anything about whether I was or wasn't arrogant, so don't go putting words in my mouth. Besides, as the wise men say, 'I ain't ***** braggin' if you can ***** do it.'"

    "That's mighty gnome of you, son. I appreciate it."

    "Curious words comin' from one so quick to judge and ***** verbalize said judgment in the hearing of said peers. Last I checked, y'all was the ones what started the whole series of broadsides. I reckon you might want to deal with that gawds-***** hunk of timber in your own eye before tryin' to pluck out the ***** splinter in mine."

    Then, Hacker produces a smug grin. "And you'd best ***** expect that when you get in a war of words with a bard, you're gonna walk away bleedin'."

I'll be over here, working on Plan B, and I reckon I might participate in that there story-*****-tellin' challenge, as I have learned from many a night of sleepin' in gutters and eatin' other folks' table leavin's, that sometimes a fella needs to sacrifice principal and dignity for a wee bit of ***** gold. And as the wise men say, 'Fifty ***** gold pieces is fifty ***** gold pieces.'"

    I've got to stop editing my post so much.

    Kruk leans forward to the gnome and says, pausing for a second to let hacker get another whiff of his sewer scented armor. "That was good Hacker. Remind me never to get in a war of words with you. Ha ha! One bottle of wiskey coming up...as promised." With that, Kruk nods his head and heads to the bar.
