    Owlbears

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


    Those are awesome. I've always liked owlbears. Maybe not my favorite creature, but i do think they're cool. Probably because i like both bears and owls. Smile

    Is Jeremy the gentleman (your friend) that may also be joining us on The Black Ice?

    This is so. However, the good news is that it hasn't diminished, either! Wink

    Have you had any luck finding a spare moment to work on your submission for the game, my friend?

    Your inductive reasoning skills serve you well. But of more, I cannot speak! You will simply have to wait and see for yourself! Evil Grin

    'Twas me. K, you might want to ask Cebrion to disable guest posting on your board. Right now, the game is young, but, over time, such things can be a risk. Smile

    Le Noir Faineant,

    As of this Thursday, I hope to speak to Elder Smedger about our little corner of Canonfire. Though I have nothing too radical in mind, you may see a few improvements shortly afterward! :)

    I have almost completed your list of special equipment. All that remains is your character's official submission! Cool

    Njord, Mirka Dano

    Hey KW!

    Mirka Dano:
    Wasn't sure if Njord is suppose to know something about Mirka in response to Cap'n F's statement. Don't recall anything, and can't find anything in notes. Maybe because i'm tired?

    Milleen:
    I have info that she is only 12 years old. Is that correct? Do kobolds age faster than humans? So is she equivalent to, say, 18? Might have a problem taking a 12 year old!

    Crow Jane:
    Same Q as Milleen but for Kenku instead of kobolds, as she is only 14?

    Ages of You

    Syz,

    You haven't missed anything about Mirka. The Captain has a personal opinion of her, based on her own experience. Persue or ignore the matter as you see fit.

    With regard to Milleen and Crow Jane: You got it right in one. Kobolds and Kenku age much differently than do humans, gaining maturity far earlier. By the standards of the former, Millen is about 23; by the standards of the latter, Crow Jane is perhaps the same.

    That's fine; Ohrin and I are organizing our thoughts re: the petitioners. Once the others get back, I'm hoping we can come to agreement sooner rather than letter. I expect we may have to interview several in order to make our final decisions.

    Saevil's Bluntness

    Quote:
    Sævil follows Milleen on his hands and knees. As they travel he asks, "Milleen your people look like lizards and what little I know of lizards is that they survive poorly in the cold, often even with fire. My friend Daela once told me this is because lizards only take warmth from what is around them, while elves and men and the like produce heat within themselves.


    LOL. i got a hoot at how matter of fact that was: "Milleen your people look like lizards..."

    That's hilarious.

    Captain Fireheart's Input

    Ok. I'll be sending a slightly different version of Njord's thoughts next (as per chat with Aurdraco), but i thought it would be good to have Captain Fireheart's take posted. As Njord will (or would) be offering her views during discussions, as being distinctly her own. So if it matters to anybody (or any character) to know what the Cap'n thinks, here it is: (+1 she gave definite thumbs up for. Only gave real detail about a few folks).

    Captain Fireheart's List:

    Code:

    +2  Asranith Lasiniir

    +1  “Slava”
    00  Yrist Vrabenn
    +1  Kharâz Stonemilker
    +1  Lertan Stonemilker
    +1  Minek Stonemilker

    +2  Idriel von Fluss-Amberhill
    00  Khândraz
    -1  Ruslan Heatherplains
    00  Frantisek Mannenheim
    -1  Monek Friedrich
    00  Sammi Vasternaan
    00  Karstren Esil
    +2  Lars Loja
    +1  Milleen

    +1  Hjálmar Frjálsmaður
    00  Jonáš Cerny
    00  Ballatia Wishílde
    00  Lucion Inmarial
    00  Gerrit Lashander
    00  Renada Rabbitwarren
    +1  “The Dark One”  (dedicated to the isle)
    +1  Nevin Stoutshield
    00  Merri Flowerfield
    -2  Mirka Dano  (not trustworthy)
    00  Narend Martracin
    +2  Lukasz Ravel
    +1  “Crow Jane”  (dedicated to the isle)

    Thanks, got it. I'm not incorporating her votes, just her notes. See in-character thread for update later today.

    Discussing the Volunteers

    Aurdraco,

    Ok. Cool. Saw the Discussion post in the main thread. Nicely done. I have no problems with the current "definites" (+3+) list. Will try to get a general NPC synopsis for Njord out this eve. Will also post q's/thoughts about the gaggle of +2 nominees.


    QUESTIONS for Kraftwerk:

    Do you prefer posting general Discussion stuff in the main thread or do you want it in the OOC thread? Or maybe you don't care?

    Are we supposed to select exactly 20 NPCs? Or was that just a ballpark number? Was there any definite reasons given for that number -- ie that large of a group? I don't recall at the moment. Didn't seem to be any.

    Answers for Syzygyst

    Syzygyst,

    Firstly, it's my strong preference that all general discussion -- that which is not conducted by your characters -- is posted in the OOC thread.

    Secondly, twenty is not a hard and fast number. The Little One put forth that number as an upper limit on a practical fellowship (considering supplies and a small enough group to elude detection by your enemies). That was simply her opinion, however. As ever, you may do as you see fit!

    Syz, yes please post Njord's more specific thoughts as they may sway Saevil or Ohrin and change their votes! This is a very complicated process so let's get this resolved so we can move the adventure forward. Thanks!

    Aurdraco,

    A job well done on collating and putting forth the list. I will refrain from posting immediately so as to facilitate conversation from you three Players.

    So get to conversatin'! :)

    Njord Quick Data

    Ok. Here's some notes. There may be more to say, but this is a start for all characters for which Njord has any solid info.

    Question marks mean uncertain. City Guard / Defenders noted.

    (CFR) Means Captain Fireheart Personally recommended to Highmountain. List posted at end.


    Asranith Lasiniir: Male, High-Elf. Ranger?
    City Guard, Loner, quiet, survivor. Parolled with Njord. (CFR)

    Lady Armiger Marissa Osson of Almor: Female H(Oerid). Fighter? Very Beautiful. Defender. Skilled. Agressive. Possibly Reckless. (CFR)

    Sir Montgomery “Monty” Persides: Male Human (Flan). Paladin (Hieroneous)
    Defender. Trustworthy but haunted. Strong.

    Lars Loja: Male human (Suel / Flan). Fighter?
    City Guard. Skilled. Trustworthy. Diligent. No BS. (CFR)

    Milleen: Female kobold
    Keeper of Wolves.

    Altansarnai: Female. Tiger Nomad. Ranger?
    Probably good tracker. Might be good on Black Ice? May be issue between her and Njord. His folk and Tiger Nomads don't have best of relations. But would depend on where she is from (clan).

    Hjálmar Frjálsmaður: Male. Fighter?
    Very strong. Not too bright.

    Ballatia Wishílde Female human (Suel / Flan). Monk?
    Attractive, young, Dancer. Solitary.

    “The Dark One”: Male. Gnome? Mage?

    Merri Flowerfield: Male. Halfling. Thief. Baker/Chef!
    Can cook!

    Mirka Daňo: Female. Human?
    Not trustworthy according to Cap'n F.

    Narend Martracin: Male. High Elf. Assassin.
    Hates orcs. Accused of murder but found completely innocent.

    Lukasz Ravel: Male human (Oerid / Flan). Fighter/Thief?
    City Guard. Promising. Tough. (CFR)

    Crow Jane: Female kenku. Mage?
    Mysterious, but with many possible talents.

    Asila T'shanna: Female Monk
    ???

    Johanna Swiftstoat: Female Halfling Thief?
    Smart, clever.

    Personally recommended (to Highmountain) by Cap'n F:
    Asranith Lasiniir
    Lady Osson
    Viscountess Fluss-Amberhill
    Lars Loja
    Lukasz Ravel

    If any of these are among the +2-group, Njord would suggest them.
