Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eighth: A Brace of Conundr

If he cannot manage this feat on his own, he will summon his unseen servant to give him a leg-up. DEX = 15 0 Lepus,Scrambling up the w...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eighth: A Brace of Conundr

Seeing that Lepus is nowhere in sight, Henry goes with the creature back in the direction that leads to where they had parted at the deer park, hoping that he will find him somewhere along the route that Lepus should be taking. He has a better idea of where to put the urn anyway. Where better to ke...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eighth: A Brace of Conundr

Vicki,Reasoning that Miss Ravenscroft may have bolted the door to the shed and not wishing to warn her by trying it, William draws his remaining pistol and kicks at the door intending to break it open. William,Let's try a STR check. STR = 12 0 The door proves to be quite a solid one, and appare...

The response is a few muttered curse words, too low to make out in detail, in a deep voice. There is also the sound of digging.

Re: Track 7:San Francisco-Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Ha

The two ladies compare themselves with Kitten's physical appearance, based on her clothing, photographs supplied by Mister Van der Maas, and a back issue of Playboy . There are several factors to consider. Although both women are on the slender side, Zara is best described as "rail thin," ...

Re: Track 7:San Francisco-Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Ha

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eighth: A Brace of Conundr

"Yes, I suppose I am your father," says Henry , returning her hug. "The world can be a cruel place, but don't let it get you down. The people who rejected you don't appreciate you, but the problem is with them, not with you. There are people who will fear and hate you because they do...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eighth: A Brace of Conundr

Victoria,After mumbling a number of protective cantrips and curses over the urn (having wrapped it in strands of thorns and drawn certain sigils on the sides, including the one discvovered in the cave, for good measure), Lepus bids the creatures good-day, apologising for leaving such an evi...

"Now that is not something that I saw coming. I hope that is not her fate." Lew replies. "She is quite deadly, however. Once we find her, how will we protect ourselves and others?" It occurs to Lew, due to his extensive knowledge of the social sciences, that Kitten's condition h...

Re: Track 7:San Francisco-Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Ha

Is there a good vantage point Zara could get to quickly enough to watch where the airship goes? Then she could draw what she sees and see if anyone recognises the place. Quickly locating one of those telescopes where you put a coin into it and you have a few minutes to enjoy the view, Zara follows ...

Re: Track 7:San Francisco-Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Ha

"I'm a bit surprised it didn't say 'SURRENDER KITTEN ,'" says Liz , watching the airship carefully to see what its heading is in order to trace its route. It would be interesting to see where it might land or moor, and she has a hunch it could be Coit Tower. The airship is observed to hov...

Lepus,The urn is successfully buried in that place. It is noticeable that the many small creatures dwelling therein move away from the site of its interment. Whilst passing through the Back Ramble, you hear the sound of rapid hoofbeats, at some distance to the north. Doctor North,The creature is ea...

Re: Track 7:San Francisco-Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Ha

The citizens of the City by the Bay -- don't call it Frisco -- are puzzled by a curious event that night. An unmarked airship, like that often used for advertising purposes by the Goodyear company, flies over the city. Instead of an expected message, such as HAPPY NEW YEAR, the animated lights on th...

Re: Book the Second, Chapter the Eighth: A Brace of Conundr

The injured creature, having no appetite for further battle, continues to run off at a speed somewhat surprising for one of such great size, heading in a northwesterly direction. The Reanimated Wretch has a Speed of 10; just a little faster than the basic human speed of 9. As if there were not yet s...

This is going to get complicated . . . Lepus DEX 15 0 Perhaps because it was thrown with great haste, the sphere wielded by Lepus fails to strike its intended target, and instead lands at some distance in the woods. The sound of its ineffectual explosion startles the newly reanimated female, who ta...

Tony mulls the question over a mouthful. “Hmm... that is something that requires a little thought... Would you be averse to using the young lady, assuming she is happy to do so, as bait?” A sound resembling a low growl emerges from deep within Miss Dubrovna's throat, at the same time that a yellowi...
