Fair enough LordK, at least you called it early rather than letting it drag on for too long.

So..... Ares, Bill & Drig, are you still up for some PbP? I'm putting my hat in the ring. I've not done it before, but I'm on the forums most days and I've GMed a shedload in real life. If you're happy to give me a few days to come up with a setting (I've been itchy to give Cloak and Dagger a go, or to restart a Epoch campaign that never really took off at my club due to timing), I'd be happy to step up and continue? We could put feelers out for a 4th possibly 5th.

Whaddya y'all think?

ps. I'm in Eastern Australia, so timing of posts/replies might be a bit skewy (and no before you ask, I have no confirmed sightings of TSKoala from this board! Wink )

Are we still rocking and rolling with this, or has it died a death?

Corva spun on the spot, as the small runty goblin that had been the target of the Wolf's charging ire flew off into the distance, a small arc of blood trailing after it. The scene wasn't an easy one to survey; the carnage of several wagons already shattered now surrounded by a myriad of the "savage" races of the world and the few humans who remained seemed to be reacting on survival instinct rather than any formal training.

"Now isnt' the time to get cold feet" she thought to herself. She glanced at Wentras, and gave a quick smirk and a nod to acknowledge his work in getting them into the thick of things; now she would do her best to get them out, well at least stay alive.

She placed a hand on the drover next to her and quietly spoke. "Fear not, we are here to aid you all, and I have friends close who will scatter these brigands to the winds" With that she draws her sword, steps forward a couple of feet and sneers at the largest creature in front of her, whilst drawing an line mere inches off the soil goading him to attack. At the same instance she hears the familiar sound of a gloved fist hitting leather as her lupine companion starts gesticulating at the rank and file nearby.

"Trust the Elf to leave." thought Corva instinctively as the wing beats of the magical summons lessened overhead. Randt's cry however provided focus, and she quickly scanned the surrounded caravaneers. She tapped Wentras on the shoulder as he pulled the horse up, just as The Rook's charged forward.
"We need to get in there, to help them." Wentras looked, then signaled with a closed fist jerking outward in the direction of a few goblins that formed part of the encircling group.
She nodded, in understanding and both slid from the saddle, Corva drawing her sword and then the ox-shouldered Wentras barreled forward with Corva following close behind.

I think we could do with a little GM input. It's a bit hard to do an media res scene as your opener if you have nothing to work with.

Corva clung to her barrel-chested compatriot as the fiery stallion beneath them threatened to either take flight or re-introduce them to solid ground very quickly. She'd never been a particular good horse-woman, hence why her travelling companion always took the reins; but this particular beast, which had been quickly liberated from a nobleman's stable they knew, seemed to be even more willful than her. The ground dropped away suddenly and her stomach lurched with it, as the horse jumped a small ditch.

She let out small unsure moan, and a word that would not be considered suitable for a lady of her former station. Wentras, the White Wolf so called, gave out a couple of small staccato grunts, both bass and coming from deep within his chest. She knew that sound was him laughing, though she knew him well enough to know that there was little malice in his utterances. She lifted her head from the musty smell of his padded doublet and brought her eyes up to look over his shoulder, scanning the surrounding countryside for any hint of either their target, or its prey.

Something caught her eye, a wisp of smoke beyond the nearest hillock - a campfire perhaps or the start of something more sinster? "Gentlemen", she interrupted, "it would appear we are travelling in the right direction" her hand now pointed towards the drifting haze.

James, does Corva's backstory imply that her lover Treran was the previous Rook? If so, I love that twist.

Drigible - That was my intent, yes! Glad you like it - it was kind of a ding-lightbulb moment!

Are you sure she is male  Grin
Whoops! Fixed that now.

Ok folks, my background's up in the original post - I have connections as requested, with enough leeway to tease a story or two out of them!

Ok I'm posting this - cos if I lose typing it all in again I'll go mad!

This is still a little WIP - I've the background to write and the PL to flesh out. But we're getting there.

I'm planning to finish it off tonight; i'll try and figure out some background to fit in with everyone as well. Being a noble type I reckon it shouldn't be too hard.

I'd be up for playing an human who works in the courts/halls of power - moving through the social circles easily and dispatching those plans don't meet his own. He could be a diplomat or a minor noble/politician whatever suits the world best really.

Build wise - I'll be starting with Vigilant Human Vanguard Assassin 5/Gallant 1, most liking with a Personal Lieutenant (his assistant/batman/functionary).

Interesting setting from the short description - I'm always up for another PBP, count me in.

I'm in  - and though I'm away for the next two weeks for a trip back home, I'll still have net access and am happy to post as needed.

I pitched FC to our gaming club several times, having like you read the ruleset and wanted to GM - but it took a while to convince people. When I finally got a group together (even with a couple of like minded FC fans) I learnt one thing very quickly.

FC is modular - use that to your advantage. Start with a basic dungeon crawl, but don't include magic. This has two effects -1) its makes everyone go "huh you can play this game without magic - that's crazy talk!" 2) It concentrates on the brilliance of the combat mechanics such as tricks, stance and maneuvers.  Just play through a scene or two with a minor boss and then reset and run another with the magic in... then talk add in some talky bits.. and then subdual damage.. and then cheat death etc etc etc. If you slowly build the group's confidence and yours with the ruleset, I've found that the stories run effortlessly and people end up having lots of Rule 0, er sorry, fun!

And don't be afraid to hand wave a situation you're unsure of to keep the flow of the session going. If you're players are happy with you as a GM and you rule fairly, it's never as important as keeping the story moving along.
