Player Info: Include mini stat blocks in your posts. Mini-stat blocks allow you to keep track of your own healing surges, power usages, acquired items, etc... without having to ask the DM all the time. It's not the end of the world if you forget, but please be sure to include it when you are posting an action block. It also make it easier for me to check basic stats.

Example mini-stats:
[sblock=ministats]
Triggers: Fox's Cunning Trigger - Immediate Reaction to the First Enemy that attacks me in melee
Status: Bloodied
Init: +5 Speed: 5 Perception:22 Insight: 20
AC: 21 F/R/W:17/18/22
HP: 30/61 Surges: 4/8 Surge Value: 15 AP: 1
Languages: Allarian, Imperia, Draconic
Str:8 Dex:14 Wis:14 Con:14 Int:10 Cha:22

Powers:
At Will - Jinx Shot, Cutting Words
Encounter - Second Wind, Fox's Cunning, Twin Strike, Grappling Spirits, Hunter's Quarry, Majestic Word (0/2), Words of Friendship, Chord of Dissonance, Rhyme of the Blood-Seeking Blade, Virtue of Prescience
Daily - Arrow of Ill Omen, Arrow of Warning, Bracers of Archery, Inevitable Shot, Songbow of Vanishment, Warding Arrow

Full Character Sheet
[/sblock]

Passive checks: I will use Perception and Insight and put information in private sblocks for certain players. If you are not one of the intended characters, please do not read these spoilers. The character, however, is welcome to, in character, reveal the contents of the spoiler to the others in game, remember that talking is a free action (but keep in short)

Combat:

Players roll initiative individually, bad guys roll one initiative roll
Players with higher init than bad guys go first then all the bad guys go
Then all the players go. From this point, we alternate players vs bad guys
Good guy turns happen in first post - first acted order.
Illegal post-overs will be resolved in that round
Legal post-overs stand even if each didn't know the other was posting (Please use Go Advanced or Preview Post to avoid this)

DM Posts during combat will include:

Status of all players, monsters, NPCs etc... indicating Name, Location, HP/MaxHP, State, Healing Surges Left, Action Points left (i.e.:: Arkavas I6 -1/41 Dying HS 0 AP 1)

Map in the form of a grid, hopefully with coordinates (everyone is already familiar with map)

Enemy Mini Stat Blocks including HP, AC, Fort, Refl, Will, Immunities, Resistance, and Basic Attack. If there are more specialized powers, I will post them at the time of their use. Trigger powers for bad guys. If you provoke an AoO or a listed power during your turn you can roll the result (it will make less work for the DM and give you a rapid response)

Time: II will give players 48 hours to post, at the end of which time I reserve the right to RP the player's character on his behalf. I will use the most appropriate actions and At-Will powers only.

Exceptions: If you will be out for a long time and unable to post, please let the party know and assign responsibility to either myself or another, willing player for RPing your character, or I can write in a scenario that takes you out of the picture until your return (The former is preferred).

Treasure: Keep a wish list on your character sheet up to date with what you would like, and I’ll try to accommodate within reason. Items will be given relative to player level. Parcel Gold/Items will be evenly divided at the end.

Die Rolling: Roll your dice on Invisible Castle. If invisible castle is down, you can also use the Enworld Dice roller (but please select the SMALLER results in your profile) In IC, highlight the die roll in your post and use the 'Insert Link' button to post a link to your die rolls.

Out of Character Content: Post out of character content (i.e.: complaints, tactics, mechanics, etc...) in a spoiler with the letters 'OOC' in the title or the OOC tag.

The cleric leaves the tavern motioning the others to follow. He leads the heros down the street to a small cafe. The owner obviously knows the cleric as he greets him a firm handshake. The usual place master Navio? The cleric responses. No my friend. May we have access to the back room as we have important business to discuss. Certainly old friend. With that, the party is ushered to the back room, which contains a large table with enough chairs for everyone. The cleric waits for everyone to have a seat before he speaks. A servant brings flasks of ale, wine and water, leaving them on the table for all to drink. Glasses are placed in front every everyone. The servant then leaves.

ooc: Make a post showing that you are present, then Navio will continue. (Post your current level and stat block so I can update the beginning of this post and prepare my combat information).

OOC: Halleck checking in


Halleck sits at the table, the orb shield laid out on the table in front of him.

[sblock=Note to other Players: Bravura]
Halleck has the Bravura Presence:
When an ally who can see you spends an action point to take an extra action and uses the action to make an attack, the ally can choose to take advantage of this feature before the attack roll. If the ally chooses to do so and the attack hits, the ally can either make a basic attack or take a move action after the attack as a free action. If the attack misses, the ally grants combat advantage to all enemies until the end of his or her next turn.

Melee characters might also want to save their AP until I hit with Withering Courage, so they can double dip on the +5 damage bonus.
[/sblock][sblock=Note to other Players: If you miss on something REALLY important]
Halleck has daily power Unintended Feint:
If you miss an attack, and you are within five squares of Halleck, you can use my daily power to reroll the attack with CA.

But, since it's a daily, please use wisely. Also, please throw up a big OOC message so I don't miss the fact that you used it.

[/sblock][sblock=Halleck's Log][sblock=Mark of Trogdor]
1. Thorkelson, a bald, tattooed man, entered the hangman's tavern and recruits Halleck and Vimak for a job. Thorkelson, needed some protection at the docks, but apparently had some sinister other motive, since he used drinks from the bar to drug Halleck and Vimak.

2. Wake up in the middle of a fight, being helped by strangers. Give the bandits a beating,

3. Get approached by the bandit leaders, who have two girls that look exactly like that one we want. The real girl is revealed, and natural, a fight breaks out. After we smash the goons, their leader, Hank the Tank comes out. And, eventually, Hank gets killed.

4. Get the real mission: deliver Lerrick to brother Buchta, so he can remove the mark of Trogdor from her forehead. The mark is in indicator to all that Lerrick has been chosen to be sacrificed to the dragon Bosch. Your quest as of now is to provide safe passage for Lerrick to brother Buchta so that he can perform the ritual. This includes taking her to the portal, traveling thought it, and then taking her from the portal to brother Buchta's place of residence.

5. Delivered Lerrick, performed the ritual, saved the day. However, discovered an evil dragon named Bosch who wears a necklace which makes him a juggernaut. Halleck carries a shield which should counter this effect. Adventurers now must stop the dragon.

[MENTION=45437]JRYoung[/MENTION] Skalisss? Are you ready?
[MENTION=73730]johnmeier1[/MENTION] Raijin? Are you ready?

OOC: I'd like to get this going. I'll wait a day or two. I understand when RL sets in. Soooooo, I have set up a couple options. Let me know what you want to do everyone. Regardless, we will start by Tuesday, one way or another.

Option 1: The five who have answered the roll call can go forth with the adventure.

Option 2: You can recruit one or two from the vast pool of adventurers at the tavern

Option 3: You can go forth and if Skalisss and/or Raijin show up they can be inserted into the adventure whenever they can come.

OOC: Your are welcome to change things :)

I suggest raising the monster levels by 10 and adding in instant death traps! (I have not read your adventure by the way, those just sounded like good general ideas ;))

Of course I have a character in your other adventure, so I could be punished for my suggestions :eek:

OOC: I would like to point out that technically Quan is a controller, not a striker...
ooc: Fixed :)

Party mix:
Leaders 3
Controller 1
Defender 1

Here we go

Hmmm...I afraid we can't wait any longer, the cleric states referring to the sorcerer and the paladin. Time is of the essence. I've already heard that the black dragon's minions are gathering in the Valley of the Bone, planning to use the portal that you took to meet Brother Buchta. He is in the process of setting up defenses there. Only time will tell if the defenses will hold. We can't worry about that now. He then places a map on the table and spreads it out.

As I was saying, I believe a sixth orb is located in our own cemetery! A hero of great fame, dwarf paladin I believe, was buried here many years ago. Among his achievements was the slaying of an arch lich. It was said that the dwarf was aided by the help of a strange shield of great power. Last week I ventured to the cemetery and located his tomb. To my delight, I found etched in the marble a shield with the markings exactly the same as the one you hold now Halleck! The party can see the location of the tomb marked on the map.

[sblock=map]
map pending
[/sblock]

I know it's a long shot, but perhaps an orb is there! Go there as soon as you can to investigate. The cleric shifts uneasily. Tread carefully and keep an eye out. I'm sure you have heard rumors of evil, both living and not, that lurk there. The cleric looks outside, noticing that the sun is setting. When do you plan to depart? Under the cover of darkness you would probably not be notice. However, bad things lurk in the dark. It's up to you. Good luck...hopefully my hunch is correct.

The cleric get up from his the table, relieved that Quan got up to go. He moves quickly to the hunter. Quan...take the map. Go now. Although you might risk danger at night, others who wish to find the orb might not expect you to go at this time. Besides, you have proven your prowess in battle. I'm sure you can handle any resistance. He turns to the others. Come...come quickly

The party moves through the city, moving from the merchant district into the slums...night life is active at this time.

Nementah thinks about cemetery, imagining great tree formed as a temple with huge root system then remembering here things are made of stone. She then makes the tree into cathedral, trying to understand the word 'cemetery' to get better sense where they are going. She's so distracted that she doesn't pay much attention to her normally sharp senses.

She already starts to forget that one who's not paying attention is already dead.
