    IC: Dichotomy's Age of Worms Redux, Part VI

    Ekaym has the statute, so you can't examine it right away. But (since he's coming to see you), you get the chance later. The statue has no magic, and Erdolliel's search turns up nothing. On the remaining competitors: Auric's warband: Auric has 5 auras, the strongest being moderate; Khellek...

    Also, I forgot, your deal with Ekaym was that he would keep half the winnings (from the prize money, not wagers). So, in theory you'd only get 1,000 of the 2,000 that was the prize for the first round.

    I'm the :):):):):):)-excuses man. Choir concerts (all done), broken internet (appears fixed), and now a mean cold. Although the latter means that I'm staying home, so posting should be easier, when I'm not on a pseudoephedrine high. After the tentacles vanish, it is plain to see how clear and...

    IC: Dichotomy's Age of Worms Redux, Part VI

    Kushnak, with the speed of flight and holy strength, flies across the arena toward Joren. With an upward swing of his sword, he splits Joren from pelvis to skull. As each half of the man falls to the sides, the crowd screams. As Korush officially executes his surrender, with weeping that can...

    Kushnak, with two mighty blows from his enlarged sword, cuts down first the gnoll and then the dire badger. Both drop bleeding to the floor. Korush valiantly charges Kushnak with a scimitar, screaming for glory and vengeance. He shows a deft hand with his blade, as he manages to find chink in...

    Kushnak calls upon holy power to strengthen him. Again, a very audible reaction is heard from the crowd as they "oooo" in unison. Korush immediately tries to counter with a spell-like ability, but Kushnak shrugs it off. The Janni calls to the unconscious mercenary's horse, ordering it to...

    Kushnak gets the jump on the majority of the foes. The warpriest floats toward the middle of the battle, and with a grand display calls down fiery divine wrath upon the mounted Sapphire Squad. As they scream in pain, the crowd roars. His horse nearly dying, Korush vaults off the creature...

    As Talabir continues on, increasing the excitement of the crowd, the magnitude of the event starts to settle in. Perhaps 10,000 people fill the stands of the arena, and hundreds of eyes watch every move. Wardens lead you to the remaining corner of a roughly 100 by 100 foot space. Blood on the...

    Do you want a map, or do you want me to actually post sometime? I'll assume you want the latter. There will be a map eventually. Blame the adventure writers for not making a map with a grid for the arena.With so many gladiators present, the Wardens try to keep order and forbid anyone from...

    Day 55 (I think...) The night passes without event, either due to the bar on the door or, more likely, the numerous wardens stationed in the area. The trio wakens to find a crowd gathered near the meal tables at the north end of the Coenoby. The battles for the day have been posted on the...

    Sorry. I've been distracted by kitties. When I have my laptop on my lap, they get enthralled by the sound of me typing. And I'm pretty sure they can even see the letters popping up on the screen, which they watch. Of course, they then try to get closer to the screen for watching, which means...

    In the midst of the trio's investigation throughout the night, they learn little more than they already have, and certainly nothing of note. After the final fireworks display and Raknian's announcement, Ekaym wishes you well, promises to see you soon, and takes his leave. As the nobles and...

    So... it's working again?The trio easily find Tirra. While the elf has quite a ring of admirers around her, once her eye catches the trio, she politely, but quickly, extracts herself. While the elf's smile stays on her lips, the flash in her eye tells you she's all business. "You've decided...

    Have to remember how this works... Also, some reminders: Re: the "normal" wagers: You find 4 bookies who are each able to handle a wager of up to 250 gold. Assuming that you win your first fight, you can either (a) ask Ekaym to cash you out, or (b) continue to let a wager of up to 250 ride...

    Nethezar shrugs. "Maybe. He did say, though, that those manager licenses are expensive. He might not have the coin. Or he might need some collateral. Oh, not because he doesn't trust us, but so that he has something in case we don't actually win."As requested, here's another primer...

    I have to admit, had I considered this more critically, I'd probably have decided that the entire betting scheme they devised should be rewritten. I don't want to 'hide the ball' and I don't want to spend more time on this than it deserves. Aside from Tirra's 'offer,' no bookies take bets on...

    Tirra nods. "I can only keep the offer open until the end of dinner. The odds will change as soon as you've had your first battle." In response to Erdolliel second inquiry, Tirra appears overtly offended. "Look, I told you that I don't play gladiator. I meant it. So, no, I won't be in the...

    Tirra shakes her head and chuckles. "Brawling with gladiators is bad for... business. Business is why I'm here. "It is getting a bit late, so I'm going to dive right in. I know that you've managed to convince the nobles that betting against you is a sure thing. Now, don't worry. I'm not...

    Once the wagers are completed, and there seems little left to do but mingle, a beautiful elven woman, dressed in stunning soirée attire, approaches the trio with a grin on her face and (presumably) business on her mind. She's the elf from the picture I posted earlier. And why would a D&D...
