Twisted Confessional | Everway

Meeting The Seers Ooc

<Lx-afk>
Hmmm. 2 players.
<Father Clockspring>
one is absent
one is dropping out
that leaves one unaccounted for
<Lxndr>
we have you, teller, and fred right now. counting mr weeks as the absent one, that leaves mr. wheeler unaccounted for.
<Father Clockspring>
tsk
<Teller>
I say we put him on the rack.
<Father Clockspring>
is wheeler Morning Weald?
<Lxndr>
no, weeks is Weald
<Father Clockspring>
ah
<Lxndr>
wheeleris inferno
let us give him a few more moments
He sent an email to the list just today, which assumes he is active and well.
er, which leads me to assume
<Father Clockspring>
hehe
<+Prodigal>
Folks, I have to go handle a bedtime
I can't start now
<Lxndr>
Very well.
<+Prodigal>
I'll be back in about 25 minutes, max
This one promises to be a bad one.

* Father Clockspring mails

<Dryad>
That's why I started beating my children at a very early age.
<Lxndr>
I was barely 3 years old when I started beating my children.
<Father Clockspring>
haha

* Lxndr has sent Mr. Wheeler an email.

<Father Clockspring>
http://www.twistedconfessions.com/confessional/index.php?n=Everway.BlindingOfLarkNar <-- for those who wish to catch up
yeah, I've sent one too
sweet
<Lxndr>
yay! Inferno!
<Inferno>
Sorry I'm late
<Lxndr>
our summonings (emails) worked!
<Inferno>
Actually no, I just walked in the door and haven't looked at my email.
<Father Clockspring>
Inferno: it's okay, Prodigal had to go etherize an impudent sprog
oh
dur
sorry Inferno
I get us all mixed up
what with the PC names
<Inferno>
Err not a problem?
<Father Clockspring>
haha
well I thought the person who rushes home to play was the one who can't make it this time
wheeler vs. weeks
damn 'w'
one of you needs to re-spell it with an h
<Lxndr>
hweeks?
<Inferno>
So we're calling him wheeks now?
And you can call me Weeler just to keep things straight.
<Father Clockspring>
hooeeks
<Lxndr>
as soon as Prodigal is back from putting his sprog to bed, we shall begin.
<Inferno>
So where are we at? Mixing it up or breaking it down?
<Lxndr>
meanwhile: How d'yall want to handle the missing Morning Weald? Since there's a conflict Ms. Weald is somewhat central to...
<Father Clockspring>
Well
my instinct is to just say MW is now a GM NPC for one session
<Inferno>
Well I'm only speaking for myself here but if I'm ever absent, feel free to NPC me as you see fit.
<Father Clockspring>
maybe use that NP Cspeak? macro
so that it shows up in the logs properly
<*Morning Weald*>
I'm okay with that.
<Father Clockspring>
:D
<Inferno>
Hehe
<Father Clockspring>
are the asterisks something the server adds, or are you doing that to disambiguate?
<Lxndr>
the server adds it. that way channel owners can't just go hogwild stupid with name-pretending
(or such is my belief behind the asterisks)
<Father Clockspring>
yeah
spoof protection baby
<**Morning Weald**>
Test test test.
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Lxndr>
I can add additional asterisks if I want though
alrighty, this session I will NPC MW, trying my best to stay true to the character as I understand it. but MW will have a smaller role than she otherwise would have, since I've got all my other NP Cs? to juggle as well
<Father Clockspring>
yeah
Prodigal: you back yet?
<Lxndr>
I'm just setting up the log.

* Father Clockspring nods

* Prodigal is back

<Father Clockspring>
sweet
game on
<Inferno>
By the way, what's the wiki site again?
<Father Clockspring>
http://www.twistedconfessions.com/confessional/index.php?n=Everway.BlindingOfLarkNar <-- catch up here
http://www.twistedconfessions.com/confessional/index.php?n=Everway.HomePage <-- main page
Lxndr: we're all here, yes?
<Lxndr>
yes. give me a few moments.
<Father Clockspring>
cool
<Lxndr>
There. "Previouslies."
<+Prodigal>
Heh
<Father Clockspring>
hahaha
nice!
feels like PTA
<+Prodigal>
Except no fan mail

* Father Clockspring comatoses vigorously

<Lxndr>
man, it's hard to run both sides of this conflict (Warden vs. Weald)
<Father Clockspring>
haha
you need a swazzle
<Dryad>
[Is Closckspring merely unconscious? Or did he seem hurt?]
<Father Clockspring>
good question
no need to bracket queries in _ooc
<Lxndr>
clockspring is merely unconscious. his mind is blown, but he's not hurt.
<Dryad>
okay.
<Father Clockspring>
any good dreams?
<Lxndr>
Pink and purple and blue... all colors, incomprehensible colors.
<Father Clockspring>
The Colour From Out of Space
<Lxndr>
that kind of stuff, yes
superintelligent shades of blue
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<+Prodigal>
Men made out of yarn
<Lxndr>
You can choose to stir back to consciousness whenever you feel is dramatically appropriate or convenient.
<Father Clockspring>
okay
speaking of which, did I learn anything at all in my overwhelming experience with the specs?
<Lxndr>
I forget what card I rolled, but it basically suggested "not at all. total, immediate overwhelming."
<Father Clockspring>
haha

* Father Clockspring struck the dragon's tail

<Lxndr>
(Alright. With the way Mr. Weeks was playing Morning, I can't think of any reason why she would stand down, even now. But just going "yes! no!" seems like a boring way to spend the next few hours.)
<Father Clockspring>
Yeah
<Lxndr>
So, there. No more "yes no"
<+Prodigal>
Running fast. 7.
<Lxndr>
I draw The Creator.
Nurture vs. Abandonment. It's upright, so it's a positive sign.
<Father Clockspring>
Heh, she's already out of the tent
<Dryad>
I was assuming I had a chance since I was already right there more or less in her way.
<Inferno>
That could be interpreted a few ways... positive for nurture/the mom
<Lxndr>
Yes, you do have a chance.
And between Dryad and Prodigal, she is stopped.
(I imagine Dryad slows Weald, and Prodigal stops her before she leaves the landing.)
<Dryad>
[BTW, what are Dryad's elements at the moment?]
<+Prodigal>
Prodigal will be as good as his word, and knock Morningweald senseless, if he's able.
<Inferno>
Hehe
<Lxndr>
Feel free to narrate the knocking-unconscious.
Dryad> My ruling is that Blindsight these days is not a large town, and you are removed from it by several hours, so you've got the Call of the Wild.
<Dryad>
k
<Inferno>
Speaking of nature calling. BRB
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Lxndr>
I meant Song of the Wild, sorry. Call is what you'll have when actually inside Blindsight.
(in the city limits, I mean)
<Dryad>
k
okay.
<Inferno>
By the hair? Now that's just dirty fighting.
<Dryad>
Hey, you do what you gotta.
<Lxndr>
(I assume no further interruptions, so I'll move ahead to "going to the seers" if that's okay)
<+Prodigal>
Yeah.
That's fine with me.
<Dryad>
Dryad wants to help the child.

* Father Clockspring nods

* Lxndr digs out the next card

<Lxndr>
and I'm kind of sad Weald isn't here to see this next card, since it's one of hers
<Father Clockspring>
oof
<+Prodigal>
Sorry guys... the chat game has started
And it's taking up too much attention
<Lxndr>
Prodigal falls off the cliff, plummeting to his doom.
<Father Clockspring>
chat game?
<Lxndr>
he's trying to play a skype game simultaneously
<Inferno>
Blah! Time to heap on the abuse.
<Father Clockspring>
...
<+Prodigal>
It's the multichannel thing.
Talking and listening and typing and reading.
It's not working
<Father Clockspring>
I could have told you that
<+Prodigal>
Sorry...

* Father Clockspring waits for the seers to answer Inferno's question

<+Prodigal>
I guess just assume that Prodigal is keeping Morning Weald out of your hair
<Lxndr>
Works for me.

* Lxndr is still getting used to using his new NPC commands

<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Inferno>
Confound it. Ditched for another game.
<Lxndr>
yeah :(
<Inferno>
That's just bad form.
<Lxndr>
he tried to play both. more than some people would.
<Inferno>
I suppose.
<Father Clockspring>
which one did he sign up for first, I wonder
<Lxndr>
this one
<Father Clockspring>
oh hi
hey wheeler
<Inferno>
Drat
<Father Clockspring>
18:39 <*Seers*> "Will you save our home, or destroy it?"
18:40 <Father Clockspring> What danger threatens your home?
18:40 <*Seers*> "Destruction (destruction (destruction (destruction) ) ) )"
^-- what you missed
<Inferno>
Oooh interesting
<Father Clockspring>
hehe
the sign!
<Inferno>
I saw the sign! And it opened up my eyes. I saw the sign!
<Father Clockspring>
ooh
<Lxndr>
(If dryad will simply let her pass, we'll move on.)
<Dryad>
are you suggesting she should? :-)
<Father Clockspring>
hahaha
<Lxndr>
I'm just wondering which option you'll choose. ;)
<Father Clockspring>
you've been quiet :)

* Lxndr draws Fearing Shadows, reversed. You see her.

<Father Clockspring>
Oh, I do?
<Lxndr>
Now you do, with Dryad's help
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Lxndr>
She's going "Look! There!" So you know where to look, etc.
<Dryad>
well. sort of.
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Lxndr>
right. following your gaze, rather than your hand.
<Father Clockspring>
How far away is she?
<Lxndr>
perhaps 20 or 30 paces. enough to be in deep tree cover, but not so far she couldn't see the road.
<Dryad>
If she can, she Salves him for what its worth.
<Lxndr>
Clockspring's eyesight gets a little clearer.
<Father Clockspring>
thanks!
<Lxndr>
Unfortunately for y'all, you don't really have stealthy skills, and I just drew Death (reversed).
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Inferno>
I don't think I was trying to be stealthy...
<Lxndr>
well, at least one person was.
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Lxndr>
Up the path, down the path, up the path, down the path
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Inferno>
At least we're getting our excercise.
<Father Clockspring>
I like how we're all so resistant to visiting the town
although I think Dryad may be splitting off at this point
<Dryad>
Dryad split off the moment you snapped a twig.
:-)
<Father Clockspring>
aha
<Lxndr>
Alrighty. Fast-forwarding BACK to Warden...
<Father Clockspring>
okay, I'd like to eavesdrop. I may be willing to use my enchantery to accomplish this
<Lxndr>
awesome.

* Lxndr draws Nature: Life Energy (upright)

* Father Clockspring imagines concocting some sort of ear funnel

<Inferno>
Nice
<Lxndr>
Narrate your ear funnel/whatever concoction, then I'll play a little cut scene for you.
<Father Clockspring>
haha, actually, I know how I'd build this thing
okay
INTRIGUE
<Lxndr>
(she's saying that as Clockspring walks in the door)
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Dryad>
Strange. I would have thought they're answers would be reversed.
<Father Clockspring>
yeah
<Lxndr>
(remember, btw, Warden is his name, not just his title)
<Father Clockspring>
haha, it took me a while to remind myself of that one
but after the cages, it's hard to remember
I have some time to finish this before the rice is done
but i recall that we broke off about this time two weeks ago
<Inferno>
Seems as good a point to break as any I guess.
<Lxndr>
Was it this early? You might be right.
And it is a good point to break.
<Father Clockspring>
it's been 3 hours
and we may have better turnout next week

* Father Clockspring hopes

<Lxndr>
I'd thought we did 4 last time. But 3 is plenty, and good.
<Dryad>
Rats
<Father Clockspring>
Dryad: ?
<Dryad>
I thought we did four, too.
Doesn't matter.
<Lxndr>
I'm happy to do more. I'm also willing to stop. I leave it up to the group.
<Father Clockspring>
well, |o_o| is home and demanding food
hehe
but I can do another 10-15 minutes
<Lxndr>
This is a natural stopping point, and we might not have one 10 minutes from now. Better to end now, I think.
<Dryad>
I'm good
Put that there just so I'll remember next week.
<Father Clockspring>
haha
<Dryad>
Well, I'll be off. Thanks, all.
<Lxndr>
good game. thanks everyone.
<Inferno>
Thanks LX
<Father Clockspring>
yeah, lots of fun
I'll do logs this evening

Of course, it took me a week... --Father Clockspring
