    IR Interlude between Turns 3 and 4 (thread 2)

    Hey there, folks.

    I consider the Interludes to be a part of the main IR now, and will archive them as such.

    I see a great deal of IR rping is going on in these Interludes.

    I must wonder - just how many people are on Forrester's side, and how many people are paying tribute to Forrester, and how many people, aren't? (your Moderator is curious)
    I already know Sollir is paying tribute to John Brown ...

    By all means, roleplay away!
    I shall watch and listen.
    I'm sure interesting things will develop.

    Alzem, please come on in to the rping aspect of this.
    This is completely freeform. No rules in the Interlude to hamper you.
    Hope Isle can send emissaries to Oerth, and talk with all of the Powers therein.
    I cannot guarantee the emissaries will return alive to Hope Isle, of course.

    - - -

    Again, I need Templates from:

    Black Omega
    Creamsteak
    Darkness
    Festy Dog
    Forrester
    GnomeWorks
    Maudlin
    Lord Melkor (Talos)
    Rhialto the Marvellous
    Sollir Furryfoot
    Uvenelei
    Valkys
    William
    Zelda



    Alzem, o' Skoteinos, (and everyone else needing further clarification) I will explain what a Template is, here and now.

    - - -

    A Template is your way of telling me how you are distributing your Power Level (PL)

    You are telling me which Arms Races you are in.
    You are telling me if you are sharing technology, and who with.
    You are telling me if you are Advancing your Civilization.
    You are telling me if you are researching 10th level magic.
    You are telling me where your armies are, and how strong they are.
    You are telling me which of the PL in your armies are not regular troops, but are instead Planars, Undead, Monsters, or Constructs.

    Your Total PL is given in the Lists.

    Here is what you do:

    1:

    Calculate your total PL.
    Total PL is just that ... everything.
    All your PL from countries plus all your PL from the Arms Races.
    Your total PL is what you use to spend. Always.
    No other number matters. Only your total PL.

    2:

    Decide if you intend to share technology with anyone.
    Figure out who you will share with at this time.

    3:

    Figure out how many points you intend to spend, if any, to Advance Your Civilization.

    4:

    Figure out how many points you intend to spend, if any, to research 10th level magic.

    5:

    Deduct those points from your PL total.

    6:

    With the remainder, allocate PL to create armies.
    Each army has exactly the amount of PL you allocate to it.
    You may create as many armies as you wish, so long as each one has a PL of 1 or greater.
    You may create armies anywhere in the territory you control.
    If you control no territory, you create armies under special circumstances - in your case, Alzem, you would create them on Hope Isle, and they would subsequently move to Oerth.

    7:

    Look at your numbers in the Planar, Undead, Monster, and Construct Arms Races.
    Change that much of the PL of the armies you have created into the beings in question, as you choose.
    And remember that Planars, Undead, Monsters, and Constructs fight better than regular troops, so changing 1 PL of regular troops into 1 PL of these types increases the strength of that army.

    - - -

    Then, write the Template out as follows:

    I am in (not in) the Planar Arms Race.
    I am summoning (3 different kinds of planar beings.)

    I am in (not in) the Technological Arms Race.
    I am sharing technology with (names of the other players or their Powers)

    I am in (not in) the Magical Arms Race.
    I am spending (x number of points) in it (or, I am spending no points in it.)

    I am in (not in) the Undead Arms Race.
    I am summoning (good or evil) Undead.

    I am in (not in) the Monster Arms Race.

    I am in (not in) the Construct Arms Race.

    My forces are deployed as follows:

    Force #1 has a PL of (number), and it is in (name of country, or general area)

    Force #2 has a PL of (number), and it is in (name of country, or general area)

    Force #3 has a PL of (number), and it is in (name of country, or general area)

    Force #4 has a PL of (number), and it is in (name of country, or general area)

    Force #5 has a PL of (number), and it is in (name of country, or general area)

    etc.

    I have a value of (x) in the Planar Arms Race.

    (x) of my PL in force #1 are Planars.
    (x) of my PL in force #2 are Planars.
    (x) of my PL in force #3 are Planars.
    etc.

    I have a value of (x) in the Undead Arms Race.

    (x) of my PL in force (number) are Undead.
    (x) of my PL in force (number) are Undead.
    etc.

    I have a value of (x) in the Monster Arms Race.

    (x) of my PL in force (number) are Monsters.
    (x) of my PL in force (number) are Monsters.
    etc.

    I have a value of (x) in the Construct Arms Race.

    (x) of my PL in force (number) are Constructs.
    (x) of my PL in force (number) are Constructs.
    etc.

    You may not have more PL in Planars in your armies than you have PL in the Planar Arms Race.
    The same applies to the Undead, Monster, and Construct Arms Races.

    The exception to this rule is Valkys, most of whose force is Planar Unseelie (and he may designate the percentage as it pleases him.)
    The other exception is Maudlin, much of whose force is Undead (and he may designate the percentage as it pleases him.)

    I will once more provide an example of a Template.
    Here is that example:

    Let us say I am the player Maudlin.
    Looking at the Lists Post, here is what I find:

    MAUDLIN (Planar Evil Demons/Xeg-Yi, Evil Undead, Vast Swamp, Sunndi, Acererak, People of Hempmonaland, Minions of Acererak, Scarlet Brotherhood) PL 155 + 31 = 186

    1. My total PL is 186
    2. I will share technology with Mr Draco / Serpenteye, Kalanyr, Forsaken One, Festy Dog, Melkor, Sollir, and Anabstercorian. And also Valkys.
    3. I will spend 90 points to advance my civilization
    4. I will spend 20 points on researching 10th level magic.

    5. I have 76 PL left, since I have spent 110 PL out of 186 total PL.

    6. I will create armies (see below)
    7. I will make most of my armies undead.

    Here then, is the Template I will be sending to Edena_of_Neith

    I am in the Planar Arms Race.
    I continue summoning Demons and Xeg-Yi.
    Since I have a third Planar group I am allowed to call, and I have not used it, I am also summoning Planar Dracoliches.

    I am in the Technological Arms Race.
    I am sharing Technology with Anabstercorian, Festy Dog, Forsaken One, Kalanyr, Melkor, Mr Draco / Serpenteye, Sollir, and Valkys.
    Also, I have decided to share technology with Rhialto.

    I am in the Magical Arms Race.
    I am spending 10 points this turn on research.

    I am in the Undead Arms Race.
    I continue to summon evil undead.

    I am in the Monster Arms Race.
    I am creating undead trolls, which regenerate as per normal trolls, but are otherwise undead.
    (And Edena_of_Neith increases your PL gained in the Monster Arms Race from 1 to 3 for that stunt, too.)

    I am in the Construct Arms Race.
    I like GnomeWork's flying iron golems. We are producing iron golems, and working on duplicating those great little monsters of GnomeWork's.

    Force #1: 30 PL, in the Tomb of Horrors
    Force #2: 30 PL, in Irongate
    Force #3: 16 PL, in the Scarlet Brotherhood fleet sitting offshore in the Tilva Straits.

    Nearly all of my forces are Undead.

    ( My PL in the Planar Arms Race is 6.
    My PL in the Undead Arms Race is 3.
    My PL in the Monster Arms Race is 2.
    My PL in the Construct Arms Race is 2. )

    (You don't have to write the above down. I have done so for convenience.)

    3 of the PL of my force #2 is Planar.
    3 of the PL of my force #3 is Planar
    3 of the PL of my force #1 is Undead (Note that this is a moot point, since Maudlin has specified that all his forces are undead anyways, unless otherwise noted)
    2 PL of my force #3 is Monsters
    2 PL of my force #2 is Constructs

    Now, Maudlin gains a special bonus.
    Because he can make all of his forces undead, he gains 3 PL of additional undead, as per his score in the Undead Arms Race.
    Valkys would gain a similar bonus to his Planars.
    This wouldn't apply to any other player.

    The additional 3 PL of undead go to my force #1.

    Maudlin, is finished with his Template.

    Remember that the updated Lists Post and Rules Post can be found in the (IR) The List and Rules Posts For Turn 4 - Do Not Post To This Thread Yet thread.
    That is the thread I will be using, obviously, to start Turn 4.
    When everything is ready.

    Serpenteye, check your email, let me know what you think of my plan.

    In a secluded holding cell, a guard is delivering lunch to a very odd prisoner. This would be unusual, but at the moment, he is but one of several such prisoners. As the guard hands him his lunch, the man glances at him with oddly mild violet eyes.

    "So, are they going to listen to what we have to say?" he asks.

    "Ain't heard yet..." replies the guard.

    "Oh, well," he sighs. "I suppose ignorance is bliss, and so forth..." After a moment he looks up. "Still after going to all that trouble, I'd think they'd want to hear what we have to say... but what do I know... I'm just a prisoner..."

    Heading away, the guard thinks to himself what a strange lot these Black Brotherhood fellows are...

  5. #5

    Oh ho!

    The prisoner waits for something to happen, for someone to come and LISTEN to what he has to say. Soon, someone does. The sound of padded footsteps walking on stone strikes his ear, and it's not the guard. A talented spy (as all Black Brotherhood are) can recognize these things.

    Someone is looking in through the window at him. It's a human, with long, dark hair that pours over his shoulders like oil. He stares.

    "What do you want?"

    "I want to listen to what you have to say. I am from the Solistarim. Speak, Suel trash."
    "No! Bad Illithid! No genocide! Bad! Bad! Put down the nuclear fire or no cookie!"

    The Bloody Waste

    Edena - correct me if I'm wrong please. Anyone who enters the land near or around the Bloody Waste is subject to it's unusual magical effects. These effects alternate, randomly invigorating people and killing or seriously harming them. However, the effects most often end up on the lethal side of the scale, right? For those lucky few that don't die/get maimed, what is the benefit?

    The prisoner sighs.

    "You know, I was hoping for something more official... still, it's kind of fun being on the recieving end of a Flann supremicist for once..."

    He glances up. "So what do you want to know...?"

    A cloaked figure begins wandering the remains of Flinty Hills, seeming to feast upon the remaining corpses not turned into skeletons, when spotted or approached, he seems to merely vanish in a blink of an eye, found wandering elsewhere...hungry...

    Edena, this turn I should have a 28 in my technology. When do I get the nukes, exactly (requiring a 27, right?)?

    Continuing the conversation with Rhialto

    "What is the Matrix?"

    No, just kidding. That's out of character. Here's what I REALLY say.

    "Whatever you have to say. My sources say you've been working very hard to get someone to listen to you, to reveal SOMETHING. But WHAT IS IT YOU WISH TO REVEAL?" He speaks more calmly now. "We can make it worth your while, if your information is useful."
    "No! Bad Illithid! No genocide! Bad! Bad! Put down the nuclear fire or no cookie!"
