Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Quest+for+Arcadia+QuestTwitter: @QMArcadianPastebin: http://pastebin.com/XLs6emLyAfter some discussion at the end of the last thread, and thank you for the feedback, I’ve decided to change the rules slightly. 1d100 for skill checks. One of the first three rolls must be below the DC to pass.1-5 crit success, 96-100 crit fail, but an ordinary roll can negate the critical. ie. all three rolls must fail (and one must crit fail) for the skill check to be critically failed. If a success is rolled, the failure is no longer critical and the skill check is an ordinary fail.Also, I’ll occasionally ask for 1d100 rolls without a DC for some social skill checks; these checks cannot crit, and I’ll take an average of the first three rolls to get a rough idea of how well Ash navigates social situations, although I’ll also take into account write-in suggestions for dialogue.~~~It’s Sunday afternoon and you’re playing Quest for Arcadia. You’ve teamed up with Lily, Trish and Shrike to do some levelling and go exploring. Things haven’t been going entirely to plan. You descended down into the chasm, and came across a ruined tower, within which you woke some sort of spirit called Old Waily.You defeated it, just, and you, Lily, and Trish are now lying on the floor and waiting for your hitpoints to regenerate. Above you, you can hear more spirits floating around, and Shrike has borrowed Lily’s staff and is defending the staircase while you recover.Earlier, Emily invited you out to dinner with her and her friends, and you haven’t decided yet if you’ll go or not.Shrike leaps aside and you hear a hideous wail. You know this attack will stun anyone caught in it. Shrike darts back in and swings Lily’s staff. You hear it connect with the leather book.“This thing is great,” Shrike says, following up with glee.“What a waste of exp,” Lily murmurs.
>>29633805Speaking of which, you have three exp to spend.>HP>SP>Weapon skills: bow, glaive>Improve abilities: Pray, Preach, Foresight>Buy a new ability: Testify (Prophet), Eye of God (Seer), Ascend (Avatar) (each cost 3 exp)>Save them for later.>Write in.
>>29634108>>29634274I'm starting to think Sunday EST might be a terrible time to run quests. I'll wait a bit longer.
>>29634383Give it a bit, man. Football playoffs going on right now, so maybe there's some people otherwise occupied. Even so, having a few people in attendance is good. Although, if you're concerned with it, maybe play around with the time slot and track "user data."
>>29633815Ascend sounds cool
>>29633815Lets buy ascend.
Hold on, we're not even sure what these do.
>>29633815Wait to spend them.
>>29634663You don't wanna ascend, son?
>>29634554It's Monday morning here, and I only have the vaguest idea what time it is in the rest of the world. Normally I wouldn't run at this time, but I'll be busy tomorrow and we haven't had a thread for a week.>>29634555>>29634564>>29634108You select Ascend from the list. As always, the game doesn't deign to tell you what it does.Shrike batters away at the spirit and then leaps backwards as its remains explode."The rest are all clustered at the top of the stairs," he tells you. And indeed he is attacked by nothing more until the three of you regain your hitpoints and get to your feet.Lily takes her staff back.As Shrike had described, you can see several of the spirits clustered at the top of the stairs, staring at you sadly, their books in hand.>Have Lily run up and PREACH.>Have you and Shrike stick with ranged attacks.>You and Trish use your verdant weapons and try and dodge the sonic attacks.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29634739Test out ascend.
>>29634739>Have Lily run up and PREACH.>Have you and Shrike stick with ranged attacks.TEAMWORK
>>29634739>Have you and Shrike stick with ranged attacks.>Ask if anyone knows what Ascend does.
>>29634782>>29634810You take a deep breath, lift your head, and ASCEND."Whoa!" Trish is obliged to duck out of the way as a pair of wings, similar to those that decorated Lily's falling angel, sprout from your back. They look unlikely to actually work, and they barely move, but nevertheless you find yourself slowly lifting off the floor. "Mind your head," Lily says.>Wait and see how long these last.>Attempt to soar up the stairs for a fly-by attack.>As above, but let Lily use PREACH first.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29634935Soar up the stairs, glaive at the ready, and PREACH before we come up swinging.
>>29634935>As above, but let Lily use PREACH first.Gonna look badass.
>>29634935>Attempt to soar up the stairs for a fly-by attack.Fuck yeah!
>>29634935>Attempt to soar up the stairs for a fly-by attack.
>>29634935>As above, but let Lily use PREACH first.
>>29635037>>29634972>>29634957"Outta the way!" you say, not certain how long your wings are going to last, and you won't be able to re-cast them in a hurry either. Shrike backs up against the wall to give you space. Your wings shouldn't really fit in the stairwell, but they merely bend, painlessly, allowing you to fit without slowing you down.And they're not very fast. Nowhere near as fast as Lily's square of earth, at least, but you suppose that makes sense for a first-rank ability. You feel more like an albatross than a swallow, slowly building momentum as you fly up the stairs.You can see translucent bony jaws opening.>PREACH first.>Aim at one with the glaive 1d100 DC 60>Try and slash at them all as you go by with a sweeping attack, even though you'll spread the damage around. 1d100 DC 60>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
Rolled 14>>29635209>Try and slash at them all as you go by with a sweeping attack, even though you'll spread the damage aroundWe AOE now.
Rolled 38>>29635209>Try and slash at them all as you go by with a sweeping attack, even though you'll spread the damage around. 1d100 DC 60Leave them open for the others to follow up.
>>29635258>>29635372You take a deep breath and PREACH as you reach the crest of the stairs. The spirits shiver and sag, and their screams never come as you slash your glaive across the gathered group.(One more 1d100 please)
Rolled 72>>29635464Smashed it!
Rolled 66>>29635464FOR THE HORDE
>>29635491>>29635265>>29635255Your hear the end of your weapon hit across the three books as your soar over the heads of the spirits."Yeah!" You hear Trish and Shrike bound up the stairs after you. You turn your head in time to see Trish swing her massive Verdant steel sword across the assembled group.You have slain Old Waily.You have slain Old Waily.You have slain Old Waily.Oh hey, another exp point. You're probably not supposed to be down here at this level."Shit." Trish and Shrike tumble back down the steps as the books start to shudder.And your wings fade. You tumble down onto the dusty floorboards, luckily out of the blast radius, as the remains of the spirits explode, splintering the wood at their feet. The blast wave ruffles your hair and clothes.Your wings lasted, you think, about thirty seconds.You lift your head. You're on the second floor. The room is circular, and there are broken leadlight windows in four directions. On the walls between them are a number of paintings, all of the same rather sad looking woman.There are bits of broken furniture, including chests of drawers and a writing desk, many cobwebs and a thick layer of dust.The stairs continue upwards. All is quiet save for you and your friends.>Search this floor.>Search the ground floor.>Look out the windows.>Head upstairs.>Spend exp point.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
Rolled 62>>29635645Slash the paintings. TRUST NO INANIMATE OBJECTS! THEY LIE!
>Search this floor.>Spend exp point.Lets put a point into our glaive.We're going to be using it for a while.
>>29635645>Upgrade Glaive skill>Search the ground floor.>Put someone on lookout at the bottom of the stairs
>>29635645>Upgrade ascent. Flying everywhere sounds useful.
>>29635684You slash at the paintings with your glaive. Nothing in particular happens, other than the paintings tear under the blade.>>29635710>>29635701You put your exp point into your weapons skill, it seems like a sensible thing to do. As you examine the level-up screen, you note that the third ranking Avatar ability is Invoke.Trish joins you. "I love this sword," she tells you fervently. "Can you watch the stairs?" you ask, she nods and stations herself.It sounds like Lily and Shrike are searching the ground floor, so you decide to search this one. In the chest of drawers you find rotting cloth, empty bottles of perfume, and twenty-three coins.There's a pair of lady's leather shoes under the desk, and inside one you find a small, slightly flattened metal ring; a Piece of Arcadia. The desk itself holds nothing of interest.Shrike and Lily join you with what they found downstairs; only a few coins were of interest. You all get nine each.>Check the windows.>Head downstairs.>Head upstairs.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29635645Spend Exp on glaive; between Ascend and our bitchin new weapon I feel like we'll end up as a melee build.
>>29635853>Check the windows.Also, check floorboards for hidden compartments.
>>29635853>Piece the Glaive, see if we can make it stretchy or something.
>>29636077>>29635937You stomp around the floorboards, looking for loose ones or hidden compartments, but everything seems pretty solid.>>29635937>>29636077There are four windows. One overlooks the way you arrived. Two face towards the distant walls of the chasm, one on each side, beyond the swampy landscape. The fourth overlooks a low hill, upon which is a graveyard. You can see headstones and the cracked slabs of tombs, leading up towards a mausoleum at the crest of the hill.The others see you looking and join you."The graveyard!" Lily says with satisfaction."A jumping puzzle," Shrike points out. Beyond the tower the ground is almost completely dead; it must be heaving with Wandering Hands. The only safe places to stand are on the fallen tower stones and the tombs themselves."Let's worry about it later," Lily says. "We've got one more floor.">>29636190You head upstairs. Your way is blocked by a wooden door, in much better repair than the one at the base of the tower.>Listen at the door.>Knock.>Try and open the door.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29636261>Listen at the door.Let's find out if there's any noises coming from it.
>>29636313>>29636333You raise you hand and knock. Behind you, you can practically hear the others flinch, although you can hear Lily make an amused sound.A voice, a hollow female voice, floats out from beyond the door."They said that my tears would become jewels. So I cried, and cried for them. But they are only tears and will forever be so." A pause, and then she continues, her voice starting to break, either with grief or anger. "I will not stand to see my sorrow disturbed again!"Lily tugs at your sleeve and whispers in your ear, "Sounds like a boss. We're being given a chance to retreat or strategise.">There are probably windows up there. Send Lily to scout them.>Kick down the door.>Send Trish in first.>Use Ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29636472>Ask if the others have a plan
Rolled 6>>29636472"Are undead vulnerable to sunlight here? We could lure it to the lower floor and break open the windows."
>>29636580There's no direct sunlight here, there's a layer of mist above you.>>29636492"What do you guys think?" you ask."This place has three floors," Lily says. "So I could bust the roof with an angel, but I can't guarantee I'll hit her.""We're sitting ducks in this doorway," Trish says. "When we go in we'll have to split up fast.""I could draw her attention through the windows while you guys go in," Lily says.After the success of the last fight, everyone is pumped for the next, and no one suggests going back.>Have Lily take the roof out, and hopefully hit the boss as well.>Lily draws the boss's attention through the windows.>Charge in and split up.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29636472>Kick down the door.
Rolled 87>>29636754"What if I go in first so Lily can see to aim the angel? Then I can retreat and shut the door."
>>29636472>There are probably windows up there. Send Lily to scout them.We can plan better after scouting.
>>29636754>Lily draws the boss's attention through the windows.Should make positioning a lot easier.
>>29636797"What if I go in first so Lily can see to aim the angel? Then I can retreat and shut the door.""You're going to have to be pretty fucking quick," Shrike says.>>29636823"Maybe you should take a look first," you say. "We don't really know what's in there."Lily nods and proceeds downstairs. You can hear weeping sounds from beyond the door now."I think we're doing her a favour," Shrike observes.You wait for a short while and then you hear the sound of breaking glass and an unholy scream of rage."She didn't like me looking in her windows!" you hear Lily yell from outside. "She's on the opposite side from the door. Room's mostly clear.">Tell Lily to use Blasphemy.>Kick the door in and spread out.>Kick the door in and charge.>Use ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29636949>Kick the door in and spread out.
>>29636949"I'm not sure we're really high-enough level for this. Maybe we should go grind in the Graveyard and come back later?"Lily's pretty beefy but we're nub and the others are meat.
>Kick the door in and spread out.
>>29636949>Kick the door in and spread out.Boss fight boss fight!
>>29637011>>29636978>>29637034You kick the door in, dart in, and dodge to the left. You're in an elegantly appointed bedroom, with lit lanterns in sconces around the walls, cheerful wallpaper, and bright and cozy furniture. A large canopy bed is off to one side.Standing at the window opposite you, glaring out at Lily who is somewhere outside, is a woman wearing a long blue silk gown. You can't see her face, but each of her hands terminates in razor sharp gleaming claws rather than fingers, and she screams out the window, loud enough to hurt your ears, but luckily nothing else."Avoid that!" Lily calls. You see the woman's head snap back as Lily smacks her through the window with her staff before flying out of range again.Trish sees her chance, lifts her sword, and charges across the plush carpet. >Back up Trish with your glaive while the boss's back is turned. 1D100 DC 50>Fire an arrow. 1D100 DC 55>Use Ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
Rolled 60>>29637200>Back up Trish with your glaive while the boss's back is turned. 1D100 DC 50
>>29637200Whoops, wrong DC. Forgot you guys levelled glaive up.>Attack with glaive 1d100 DC 55
Rolled 6>>29637200>Fire an arrow.It's what we do best.
Rolled 80>>29637200Lunge at the boss with the glaive. Aim for the shoulder.
Rolled 91>>29637200>Back up Trish with your glaive while the boss's back is turned. 1D100 DC 50
Rolled 89>>29637239>>29637245meh>>29637243not bad.
Rolled 73>>29637200I can't believe they "glaive" us the opportunity for a backstab.
>>29637243>>29637245>>29637239You and Trish charge together, blades first and they sink into the woman's back. You try and aim for the shoulder, and you feel the end of your glaive dig in and scrape against her bones. She doesn't bleed, but she shrieks in pain, and there are now two holes in her back.Then she turns to backhand you both with those silvery claws of hers. >Dodge out of range 1d100 DC 80.>Deflect the blow with the glaive, spin and retaliate. 1d100 DC 50>Use Ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
Rolled 98>>29637461Deflect and strike. Now THIS is podracing.
>>29637481>>29637501Er, which option are you rolling for?
Rolled 46>>29637544Probably Dodge.Second for block & strike.
Rolled 55>>29637461yup dodge>>29637481me
>>29637659>>29637477>>29637632You dodge back out of the way, Trish blocks, and her weapon is struck aside, but it absorbed the blow. An arrow whizzes by you and buries itself in the woman's shoulder. It steams slightly. From the corner of your eye you can see Shrike holding the tip of the next one over the flame from the lantern. You honestly doubt it's making that much difference, but it's better than nothing.You can see the woman's face now, the same as the one in the paintings below. Her cheeks are silvery with tears the same colour as her claws. She takes a deep breath; she's winding up.>Turn and run back down through the door.>Fling yourself flat on the ground.>Try and hide behind the bed.>Glaive to the throat 1d100 DC 30>Use Ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29637778>>Use Ability.Foresight. Then glaive her.
Rolled 32>>29637778Glaive. Throat.
>>29637778PRAY and CHOKE
Rolled 58>>29637778>Glaive to the throatLet's do this.
Rolled 53>>29637778Glaive. Throat. Booyah.
Rolled 55>>29637778HASSAN CHOP!
Rolled 27>>29637820damn, almost. Maybe we'll get a bonus since we did pump a point into the Glaive.
>>29637934I forgot the first time but that bonus should be included in the DC normally.>>29637820>>29637886>>29637896You step in and stab, and your blade connects, but doesn't go deep enough to prevent what comes next. She screams. You fall to your knees, as wit and strength are knocked out of you. It feels like did when the Old Wailys screamed earlier, but a hundred times worse.She looms over you and Trish, and then shudders, and you realise Lily has PREACHed to buy you some time. You do not think you'd survive another one of those.>Get up and attack while she's stunned. 1D100 DC 55>Back off.>Back off and call for an angel.>Use Ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
Rolled 56>>29638035Retreat with Trish and Shrike, slam the door, and call in the air strike.
Rolled 23>>29638035>Back off and call for an angel.
Rolled 19>>29638035>Back off and call for an angel.
Rolled 35>>29638035>Get up and attack while she's stunned. 1D100 DC 55Should have choked her. Oh well.
Oh sure, NOW the rolls are amazing.
>>29638120>>29638099>>29638079You grab Trish's collar and tugs and she gets the hint. You stagger across the room, noting that Shrike already took refuge in the stairwell from the scream. He's heading back in when he sees you leaving and stops."Let her have it, Lily!" you yell as you pull the door shut behind you.You can't hear it clearly, but your skin still crawls at that word. And then there is a brief moment of silence. You can picture the angel falling, faster and faster.THOOM!You can feel the impact through the walls and floor and the three of you stagger slightly, as the sound of breaking rock and splintering wood reverberates through the building. You wonder if the whole thing is going to come down, but other than a shower of dust, the stairwell remains intact."No," you hear the boss sob."She's not dead?" Shrike asks. He draws his sword. "I'm still okay, I'll go first.""She's still standing, but she's not looking good!" Lily calls.>Let him go first if he's so keen to do something.>Don't be ridiculous, Shrike. You have no Verdant weapons. Go in first yourself.>Let's all just stay here and let Lily handle it.>Use ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
Rolled 54>>29638362"Don't worry. We'll end your suffering."Knock an arrow.
>>29638362>Don't be ridiculous, Shrike. You have no Verdant weapons. Go in first yourself.
Rolled 95>>29638408>>29638362agreed arrow time. Go for the heart.
Rolled 51>>29638362>>Don't be ridiculous, Shrike. You have no Verdant weapons. Go in first yourself.
>>29638425>>29638408>>29638505 (crit fail negated by ordinary success)You kick open the door, and it sticks slightly, but you realise it's now almost entirely rotten. The room is not merely in shambles after the roof has caved in, but the fine furnishings are just gone; all that's left is rotting and dusty remains, and the lamps are shattered and cold.In the center of the room, the woman stands, her head drooping. Her fine dress is in rags, and only a few shreds of skin stick to her emaciated skeleton. Her eye sockets burn with fury, and her long silver claws flex at the ends of her skeletal fingers. The glamour has worn off.You nock an arrow and let fly but it sings past her head. With the roof gone, Lily flies in overhead and leaps off her square of eart,h swinging her staff. The boss retaliates and Lily leaps back out of the way onto her artifact.The boss is winding up again to scream, but her head is pointed at the sky, where Lily is floating safely out of reach, waving her middle finger.>Let her have it in the back again with the glaive 1d100 DC 55>Use Foresight first, then let her have it.>Fire another arrow 1d100 DC 55>Use Ability.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29638661>>Use Foresight first, then let her have it.
Rolled 75>>29638661>Use Foresight first, then let her have it.Rolling for glaive.
Rolled 91>>29638661Deep breath. Focus. Decapitate.
>>29638661>Use Foresight first, then let her have it.
Rolled 82>>29638661The dice gods don't have the power to make me crit-success this.Cut off her head.
>>29638788>>29638759>>29638725You use FORESIGHT and you see yourself launch forward a dozen times, your blade cut through her in a dozen ways, but in one, and only one it is true. The tip of your blade cracks the vertebrae just below her skull and you drive the weapon inwards and upwards, and with a sickening crack her head comes loose and flies free into the misty sky.You have slain Wistrasa, Lady of Sorrows.The head lands on a pile of rubble and rolls to a stop.You hear Trish sigh with relief behind you. And then Trish and Shrike are patting you on the back and congratulating you on your attack.Lily floats down and hops off her artifact, grinning. You take a moment to celebrate your victory."You're really gutsy," Lily tells Trish.Shrike is looking a bit downcast. "I swear I'm going to make this blood shard into an arrow of death. Next time guys, you'll see." He sighs.>Search the body.>Search the room.>Kick her head out into space.>Lie down and regenerate.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29639016>Lie down and regenerate.
Rolled 13>>29639016Search the room, loot her claws, etc, etc.
>>29639016>>Search the body.Loot.
>>29639016>Search the body.C'mon some great stuff.
>>29639016>Search the room.Lootin.
>>29639209>>29639148The room is a mess. Lily tells you that there should be a chest in here somewhere, given she was a boss and all, but it's buried under all the rubble. The four of you set about clearing it away, tossing stones over the side and unearthing the ruins of the old furniture. Finally, you find the tatted silk and rotted wood of the bed, and Trish uses her sword to chop it up into more manageable pieces.Underneath, finally, is the chest.Lily goes over the body, and at the end, you set out the loot in the middle of the room to divy it up.There's money in the chest. Seventy-three coins each. That's the easy bit. There's also one set of Wistrasa's Claws, eight bluish crystals in a teardrop shape called Tears of the Lady, and a Diamond Necklace Shrike unearthed from a chest of drawers.The four of you sit on the floor, or rather, you and Trish lie flat to get your hitpoints back, and discuss how to divide it up.Trish says Shrike can have his pick before her. He wants the claws. Lily is eyeing off the crystals. Both the latter objects can be made into armour, and the claws can also be made into a weapon. Lily warns it'll be expensive, however.What do you want?>The crystals.>The necklace.>The claws.>Cut the necklace up and divide the tears among yourselves for maximum fairness. Split the claws between yourself and Shrike; one hand each.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
Rolled 39>>29639452Claws, Maybe we could put a blade on the other end of the glaive and get dual-efficacy.
>>29639452>>The crystals.Split the crystals with Lily.
We have a decent weapon. Lets go for armor since we had two near death experiances lately.
>>29639452>The crystals.Awww yisss.
>>29639452Split the crystals with Lily. Meat are equipment-dependant, they'll be more useful to use with better kit.
>>29639452>The crystals.>OtherLet's barter some of our coins with Trish and Shrike for that bleeding metal stuff we got from from the gargoyles. Bleed-Out arrows sound great for leading an attack.
>>29639540>>29639529"I definitely need some new armour," you say. "Those crystals might do the job.""Okay," Lily says. "That's fair enough. "Let's say we split the crystals, Shrike gets the claws, and Trish gets the diamonds.""I love it!" Shrike says. 'I am so down with this deal." He's practically drooling over the claws."You're going to want a loan, aren't you?" Trish says."I gave you a loan to make your sword," Shrike reminds her.>>29639612"I'll buy those blood shards off you," you say to Trish and Shrike, since they seem short on cash. It occurs to you that you might be short on cash as well, but money can be found all over the place.They exchange a glance. "Fifteen coins each," Shrike says.>You mercenary. I'll give you ten.>Take the deal.>Dispute something else.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29639716>Take the deal.Might as well act in good faith.
>>29639716>Take the deal.
>>29639716>Take the deal.They're our friends and we did sort of swindle the Verdant Steel without telling them.
Rolled 57>>29639716"You mercenary! Whatever will a poor little girl like me do? How about... twelve? Pwease?"Roll to seduce.
>>29639774>>29639767>>29639740"Deal." You hand over the cash, and they give you their Bloodletter Iron. You also receive four of the crystal tears."You should be able to make something with a bit of magical resistance," Lily tells you, pocketing her share."I am going to make the most awesome bow," Shrike says.Your hitpoints and spirit points have regenerated, and you sit up. The mist above you looks a bit darker and gloomier than you remember."So, what now?" Lily asks.>Head back; by the time we're somewhere safe it'll be approaching dinnertime.>Go onwards to the graveyard.>Take a break for dinner; a couple of hours maybe, and log back in together to continue. Assuming the boss won't respawn by then.>Write in.>Quit Arcadia.
>>29639939>>Go onwards to the graveyard.
Rolled 53>>29639939Head to the graveyard.
>Take a break for dinner; a couple of hours maybe, and log back in together to continue. Assuming the boss won't respawn by then.I think we scheduled something tonight. Might as well do it. Also I kinda want to see what goes wrong in the real world next.
>>29639939>Head back; by the time we're somewhere safe it'll be approaching dinnertime.Let's try to be sociable IRL, and I don't want to hang around here.
>>29639939>Head back; by the time we're somewhere safe it'll be approaching dinnertime.more irl spookystuff pls
>>29639939>Take a break for dinner; a couple of hours maybe, and log back in together to continue. Assuming the boss won't respawn by then.Ask if bosses will respawn in a couple of hours.
>>29639939>>Take a break for dinner; a couple of hours maybe, and log back in together to continue. Assuming the boss won't respawn by then.
>>29639939>Head back; by the time we're somewhere safe it'll be approaching dinnertime.No need to overextend.
>>29640039>>29640010"Would it be safe to log out here?" you ask. "We could log out for food and them come back and keep going, if you guys want to that is.""I'm okay with continuing, after dinner but not too late," Trish says. "It is Sunday." The others nod; that sounds reasonable."The boss will respawn, but not here," Lily says. "This world likes changing, so she'll show up in a different dungeon miles away. Most places are pretty safe for about twenty-four hours after you clear them. It's common to see people following a high-level player to get to new places but that's a risky strategy. We'll be fine here for now though.">Log out here.>Head back to the city and log out there.>Write in.
>Log out here.If its safe, its safe.
>>29640187>>Log out here.We should give a time when we'll be back. Or exchange emails.
Rolled 44>>29640187Log out here.
>>29640187>>Log out here.Are they all in our timezone?Speaking of, for an obscure free-to-play MMO, there aren't many slavs.
>>29640187>Log out here.>>29640321Might be region-locked.
>>29640301>>29640270>>29640225You talk it over and agree to meet back in three hours. That should give you plenty of time to get over to that cafe you were invited to and back again; assuming you go. Either way, you don't intend to spend hours chatting with Emily's friends.Lily doesn't log out, she says she's going to chat with friends for a while via her mirror before dinner."I'm just reheating a pizza anyway," she laughs.You bid the others farewell, and log out.>>29640321You get the impression that everyone is in roughly similar time-zones.This seems like a good place to stop. Sorry to cut things a bit short; it did take a little while to get started today. Next thread will be Wednesday evening EST at a more usual time.Can't hang around to chat today.Thanks as always for playing.
