    More Important is the Journey OOC

    Sorry my post is a little short y'all.

    Chapter 2 - More Important is the Journey

    Jack listened to Priscilla and Ronin, and took note as the hoofed one bolted nimbly up the nearest tree that hadn't been flattened when the Gehenna came down. He listened to the vampire's question. Thought about answering. But his soldier instincts were stronger. So he fixed his gaze on Arzada's eyes and watched, waiting for that flash that always came before violence. "Come over here, Priscilla," he said, drawing a little closer - but not too close. He didn't want to spook the vampire. There was a distant shout, and with his owl eyes he saw they had been spotted by a group of pirate-scavengers. At least a dozen, drawing closer with weapons drawn. Great.

    Glad to have y'all back. For future reference I'm happy to have a revolving door policy once you've been in the first time. Just try to make it fit in with the story:).

    Thanks, @Jotnotes, for the effort you put into this. I appreciate I'm not the only one trying to keep this RP rolling.

    Feedback - RP etiquette: NPCs

    I agree with this statement, generally. That said if you have a whole town or city's worth of people, even if the citizens are meant to be intelligent/strong you're always going to be able to assume someone is the exception to the rule. Ie. you have a city full of university-educated people but you're still going to need janitors, gardeners, window cleaners etc. Having such a job doesn't necessarily mean they're not intelligent but these jobs require, above all, the ability to not get bored with the mundane. They're not associated with intelligence. So having a gullible bus driver in a city of "intelligent" citizens would be no problem for me. That said, it would be less cohesive to portray the mayor of such a town/city as a gullible buffoon. The mayor of a city of intelligent people would probably be quite sophisticated and... intelligent.

    Ah. I get it now. I thought Arzada had gone on a rampage just before Priscilla arrived. The boundary between metaphorical and actual was rather blurry too. I changed my post. I made a few assumptions, namely that Arzada in rampaging-cannibal-vampire form is quite a messy eater. And also that Priscilla is lumped face down in the snow. Let me know if that's not correct.

    I think I understood the essentials. She ate someone and then started to feel better? Was there something in my post that implied I missed something?

    Chapter 2 - More Important is the Journey

    Jack's owl scouted ahead, looking at the wreckage and the pirates who looted it for plunder. Just pirates, as far as he could see. Anyone alive and worth more than the cost of their injuries had been taken to the airship anchored nearby. The rest had frozen to death in the snow. Owl eyes followed Priscilla's footsteps as they wound between the wreckage, around metal and corpses, until they came to a familiar figure lying face down in the snow. "Oh... shit," he said. There was someone else nearby too - another female, though it was hard to tell. She was covered in blood, likely dead, but then he saw her hand move. Jack almost tripped. If there was one dead moving... no, no. This wasn't another Fell Point incident. The person was very much alive. Maybe the blood wasn't hers. He drew his sword as he came closer, and moved his tiger around the bloodied figure and Priscilla at speed, securing it away in an ambush position - a failsafe should anything go awry before he could get her back to safety. As much as he wished the bear were here it was resting back in the cave, more bullets under its skin than a squad of sharpshooters took on patrol. Just him, a big owl and a bunch of pirates. Finally, he rounded a large piece of fuselage and laid his human eyes on the scene. Jack prided himself in his ability to remain calm in a crisis. He had been calm in the face of the Army of Elit, where his troops had been outnumbered five to one; calm in the face of the death pack's raid on Gernasser, when his stag form had been caught outside the walls and eaten alive by wargs. But there was something about the mangled pirate corpse lying strewn across the snow, the droplets of blood leading back to Priscilla and... Arzada. The vampire. Blood all over her face and hands. Something about that... There was a chill in his bones deeper than any snow could make. "Getyourdamnhandsoffher," he hissed, not sure if he had made any sense, hands white-knuckled on the blade of his claymore. His tiger who had been looking outwards for danger now looked inwards; his owl circled lower.

    There's no posting order, but technically it's @The Blex's turn. But for the sake of keeping things rolling I'll post:).
  10. Psst, your turn to post in Mapping.

    @Mag So as providence would have it now's a really good time to re-enter this roleplay, as Priscilla just headed off to the wreckage of the Gehenna to go looking for you 😁

    Chapter 2 - More Important is the Journey

    Jack looked as Ronin got to his feet as if nothing had happened. He'd seen stranger things, of course, but nobody he'd known who needed cauterising bounced back so well straight after. "Hm," he said, mind still dwelling on the walking miracle before him. "Much as I agree, I need to treat my bear in the same manner," he said, pointing to the hulking pile of fur, blood and blubber by the cave wall. "He'll be ok though, once I stop the bleeding." He checked the blade again, which was red hot, then went and pushed his bear onto its side. "I suggest you stand well back," he said to Ronin, then grabbed the knife from the fire and plunged it into the bear's bullet-pricked flesh. The roar that filled the cavern shook the very stones, and Jack was almost overwhelmed by Stubb's desperation to get away from the pain. But he settled quickly and let his head fall to the ground, breath coming in ragged gasps, whites of his little eyes showing in the corners. "A few more minutes rest," he said. "Just to make sure the wounds won't split again. We'll have something to drink once Priscilla gets back with some water then..." he stopped mid sentence, having only realised then he couldn't see Priscilla by the creek through the eyes of his owl. "Damn," he said, then grabbed his sword, the tiger leaping to its feet beside him as he dashed out of the cave. "Damn bloody damn!"

    Sorry for the delay guys. I hope go be on tomorrow, depending on work and whether the 2 year old goes down easy. I just thought of a great title for an action parenting movie: Sleep Hard. Nap Hard?

    I can't believe you wrote all that on a phone, lol. That's pretty awesome.

    Jack grinned, and sighed with relief. "Sure. I'll take any form of gold or silver," he said, then reached over and put the dagger back in the fire. He wasn't looking forward to what was next. He took off his helmet and handed it to Priscilla. "Take this down to the stream outside and fill it up with water. Keep his fluids up." Then he turned back to Ronin. "You hiding any other injuries under all that blood?"
