Hoa Li bursts out laughing at Quinn's successful die roll. "Oh ho ho! The witch waves her wand and POOF! She manages to disguise each traveler. Witch is now beautiful woman, much younger than before, dressed in noble lady gowns. Paladin is in full knight's armor, with beefy muscles underneath. Jester is now a small child, wearing colorful clothes and a mischievous grin."
He scoots the figures further across the table. "You have passed old hag. She decides her mind is playing tricks on her. Make your way through town. Paladin, do you wish to seek out the trainer to prove yourself? Jester, do you have any business to settle before heading to mountain? Or any questions for why to help this witch?"
Walltur listened intently to Hoa Li's description. Impressed with Quinn's roll and results, he began to sketch their illusions as described the the Dungeon Master. While working, Walltur thought of his character's motivations. Obviously, they have just evaded danger, and that mob from before. Although the illusion was a great boon, all spells wear off with enough time. It would probably be best if they left town as soon as possible, lest they attract more attention...
Presenting the drawing to the group, Walltur beamed at his presentation. He took another tall swig from his mug before refilling it, looking between the group members. He shrugged his shoulders and motioned his hand forward.

Hoa Li smiles and decides that Charlie's silence indicates he has no plans at this point. So, he continues the story -but not before filling another mug of beer. With a sloppy grin, he continues:
"The oddly disguised group continues through town towards the mountain, where evil Prince Snow rules. He has many traps along the way, with slaves fighting for him. The dragon hides the treasure up at top of mountain. Prince has stolen from the witch, treasure hidden by dragon. Must reach top of mountain and face dragon or prince at end. But first- come across children fighting in fighting pit! They see Jester as child and throw him into pit! Prince Snow likes to watch children fight to death, sick sick man. What do, Jester? Witch's powers can't help! Disguise spell not worn off yet!"
Walltur gasped. Children fighting to the death? For entertainment?! The thought was unbelievable and chilled the large man to the core. He at least took in some small comfort that this sort of tragedy did not exist in their world, just this imaginary one.
Looking over at Quinn and Charlie, he smiled warmly at the sleepy, cuddly couple. It had been a long day, and the evening was quickly advancing. Some rest would be welcome, but not before they had found a good stopping point to their adventure.
Having studied the figures on the board, Walltur draws himself up straight. His fingers grasped his little Jester figurine, positioning him in the middle of the children. Looking to hold back from violence, he makes his figurine dip from the side to side, performing stunt falls, acrobatics, juggling and physical humor. Its been some time since his character had performed the craft, but the old skills aided him in his time of need.

Hoa Li watched as Walltur jotted down stats and flipped his little figurine around. He was amused, although he'd hoped for some verbal decision to be made. He hovered over the table as Walltur made more notes and rolled his die, with a 13.
With a shrug, Hoa Li responded, "Children are amused. Fighting stops, and just as children run to childlike Jester to play, spell wears off and Jester becomes big scary Jester once again. Children scream and run away. Group is now left alone with fork in the trail, in regular forms. Left or right?"
Hoa Li tossed a fork onto the space in the table near the figures and looked around at his band of misfits with a grin.
Walltur: Mmk, I can see that now

Vester Lombard: Beating a seeker in the 4th is pretty huge. Each IP is essentially erasing the effect of one of their successful searches.
Mar 17, 2016 16:28:34 GMT
Quinn Starling: Yeah, I would have hit Ginger more if I thought she'd rest up or if you'd heal her. But I figured that you guys would maybe leave her at 2 since that was her max, especially since we decided to stay inujurred, too Lol
Mar 17, 2016 16:36:34 GMT
Quinn Starling: We planned back between periods 2-3 to consider staying injured if we got to -3 again, to waste any coming beatings. If you aim for low DCs, have enough skill to make up for the IP, AND get lucky, it's sometimes worth it to keep the damage & keep rolling
Mar 17, 2016 17:34:53 GMT
Vester Lombard: I think in the 2nd period you definitely have to rest. 3rd period, maybe, pending your team strategy. 4th period, probably not.

Sprye Tatel: In the interest of not adding a new post each day to the Space Debate threads, would we be interested in sharing ideas via Google Docs? tinyurl.com/zlk8sb3

Quinn Starling: I'm in favor of death penalty for illegal pretty floral bonnets. I think that needs to be an argument that happens Lol
Mar 21, 2016 13:54:41 GMT
Walltur: Pro, but under the argument that all viewers of the bonnet be executed, rather than the wearer. Deadly illegal bonnets
Mar 22, 2016 4:16:02 GMT
Quinn Starling: Depends on how pretty. We'd need a numerical rating scale, to start. Any bonnet rated 6 or over (by 2/3 vote of galactic council) is determined "pretty" and a single flower may be defined as "floral." Any fixture worn upon the head may serve as "bonnet."
Mar 22, 2016 15:54:13 GMT
Quinn Starling: (that's on a scale of 1-10) And I'd be against death penalty for illegal ones (unregistered, obtained illegally, etc.) Jail sentencing and community work are appropriate, but not death penalty. Too extreme.
Mar 22, 2016 15:56:18 GMT
Vester Lombard: While I am against the death penalty for pretty floral bonnets, I do think that all people who have encountered the bonnet should have their brains slightly melted. I think this would both save lives and prevent any risk of spreading that fashion
Mar 22, 2016 16:25:34 GMT
Sprye Tatel: Again with the slightly-melting brains proposal? Seems very convenient for the Muppet-race; who can re-grow/stuff brain cells! Whose pocket are you in? Who is pulling your strings!?
Mar 22, 2016 17:16:41 GMT
Sprye Tatel: I say that the punishment should fit the crime: The penalty for Pretty Floral Bonnet's (PFB's) should be death by PFB!

Quinn Starling: I have found my people. This is where I belong <3

Walltur: Any games coming down the pipe? Online practice game of Cornucopia?
Apr 6, 2016 15:19:22 GMT
Vester Lombard: If you guys want we could try doing some online Galactic Debate. It would lose a bit of the spontaneous improv element when played on the forum, but maybe it could at least help figure out which cards are fun or boring.

Quinn Starling: We could schedule a "live" session and either skype or have the speaker type up their response within a certain time frame. So, speaker says they're free at 9pm. At 8:55 they're given their topic, then they have from 9:00-9:05 to type up their platform...?
