    Ok, was tired for that last post (about leaving hq and gathering gear), so hopefully it wasn't too bad.

    Basically Njord was trying to make note of anything he thought the hq/guards could use, and either picking it up on the way back or after returning with all his gear. This depends however on:

    What time-ish does he return to hq? He plans on heading to the captain's an hour after sunset, which leads to the question(s): When does the sun set, and, thus, what time of year is it (date)? I may have already asked that but i'm tired. I'll check notes later today...

    Also, he may wish to bathe if possible before heading to the captain's. He needs to clear his heads.

    The post wasn't too bad. I understood what you meant, which is really all that matters. Smile

    For your further information: It is the 7th day of Readying. Tomorrow is, ironically enough, the first day of the week-long Rising Fest: A holy week, sacred to the followers of Beory. Luna will be in her full glory in four days. Sol has been setting sometime around 5:00pm, which means you have slightly less than three hours before you will appear at Captain Fireheart's office.

    Plan accordingly....

    C2: HQ / Njord

    Thx, KW. More Q's:

    Oerth Year:
    What year (CY) is it? (If you already stated this, i can't find it.)

    WATER? Both on Corus and Our Journey?:
    Another big Q: WATER ECOLOGY. Are there blocks of fresh-water ice available for transfer to be melted down? Or sea-water boiling? Are there public containers with fresh/sea-water or ice? There are springs but don't know if they are potable (sulphur), etc.????

    HQ Equipment/Food/Items:
    Also, don't know how detailed you wanna get about the HQ accoutrements, but Njord is back to thinking about getting things that might be needed for the several days they will stay there. If he thinks of anything (or if the guards specified things they wanted), and he thinks there is time to get them before seeing the Captain, he'll do that. Otherwise, he will simply wait for the others to return.

    Bath:
    He was thinking of a bath, but now thinks he'll need it after seeing the Captain. He'll probably need to calm down again.

    Corus is surrounded in briny salt walter. Most of it is in a slushy state, frozen at the edges of the Brink Islands. With that said: Ohrin, I suspect, will be instrumental in your party's survival. Corus' drinking water is, likewise, provided by clerical spellcasting (which I mentioned in some Players' information packs, though not all).

    Noted. I know that you mentioned your desire to do this before, but I ignored reflecting it in the story quite purposefully. It will soon become apparent why (minor spoiler: It won't prove necessary).

    Heh. You're beginning to see how this works, I see. Laughing

    Lamashtu,

    The Brink Islands are a cold, cold place, my friend. You want happiness and sunshine? Go someplace sunnier...like, say, Rauxes. Evil Grin

    Also: It's Syz' fault for comparing them to Oompa-loompas!

    Hey, i love Oompa-Loompas! They're awesome! Plus, i have to add levity where i can, considering that my moody and even somewhat morose character is soon going to be flayed alive by the captain, or by the demon that currently possesses her! Wink

    But, KW, you didn't wait for my follow up after the gnome-children depart! That's when Njord was going to walk nonchalantly over to the fireplace and, with a sinister sneer and laugh, cast the silly thing into the flames! Wink


    In truth, that's simply adorable. I actually want one.

    Nice scene, KW.

    Yeah, right. You and I both know Njord doesn't have that in him.

    Some fun facts on that scene:

    - Ernie Gygax's favorite monster of all-time is the Owlbear.

    - Ernie Gygax has that very same plush owlbear in the link I sent you. That was actually the inspiration for the scene. I saw that plushie and, like you, thought it was absolutely adorable.

    - I, too, love owlbears. I have subsequently bought that doll (she's looking at me right now as I type this, from her perch on my desk) and I think it's still available. I want to say she was $25?

    - Is it just a doll? Or was it something much more...? Evil Grin

    Thanks for the kind words. Fun scene to write!

    Gotta agree that was a really sweet and fun scene.

    I've seen that owlbear plushie before, considered grabbing one for my niece.

    Quite the opposite, she's not yet 4 and she's already dwarfing 8 year old boys. I look forward to watching her kick **** in Krav Maga classes, and when she's a bit older, taking her to the firing range.

    Although last I checked she still adores the Cthulhu plushie I bought her when she was an infant. I was between careers and basically took care of her 5-6 days a week while her parents worked. Those were good times. *sigh*

    Just a small heads-up: I received your message today, K. Smile Suffice to say that when I said that I was a Greyhawk mainstay, that also involved some knowledge of the technical pitfalls the site brings. Happy

    I am still very interested to join, but I am on the road until Sunday, so I'll only be able to respond you in a proper fashion when I am back home.

    But, yeah, as far as I am concerned, I can't wait to join you all! Smile

    C2: The Outsiders / Hq / Njord / Idle-time B4 Captain

    KW,

    Njord is pondering his options for the next, what, 1-and-a-half hours? 1/2 hour-ish for sunset then wait an hour?

    He's wondering if sewing Olivia seems like a good idea. I think you mentioned she has some stuffing showing?

    He'll be looking over the list for a few (10/15) minutes, and then try to think of something else to do. Might sharpen swords, etc.

    If you have any input, do tell.

    -- Syz

    PS: As far as the doll being something 'more,' Njord has no idea. Although he might be a little wary of it if he thinks it's a creation of the Dark One.

    If You Give an Owlbear a Haunch of Human Flesh....

    Syzygyst,

    Given your current interests, I thought that you might enjoy this picture:

    "Mother's Day". Purchased for me as a Christmas gift by my best friend, Jeremy. Subsequently painted by professional miniature artist Bryan Cp Steele.
