    The Red Festival (Dangerous Party)

    @supernal Nah, my position on MOBS is that it works in a tournament setting where the environment is controlled and steps are taken to ensure a fighter isn't allowed to bring an unbalanced amount of power in. So flipping a coin after five rounds shouldn't be a big deal as the pair should be about equal and it cuts out the most cancerous part of an RP tourney. Even if it does let Krillin defeat ssj Goku. Not that having everyone flip a coin for every npc that they wish to try and defeat here wouldn't be funny. T1 that doesn't break down into OOC arguments is a beautiful thing and makes for a great read. While the MOBS does cut the heart out of the largest batch of potential problems that could possibly arise from competitive rp, but it doesn't allow the ones that didn't require a preventative measure to run wild as they should. This here has heart, soul, and fire. Definitely lots of fire!

    Yeah, there is nothing MOBS about this. Which I like. Dredge shouldn't be defeated by someone who could charge in flailing about AND win a coin flip. Now, let's see some dudes get overwhelmed because they forget NPC's (and in this case combat focused NPC's) are cannonically non-incompentent and the blast sizes they we're counting on didn't measure up. Or cut down due to Dredge's no team killing outside of honor duels proclamation after they tried to cutely blend back in after random killing for fun. Just some thoughts from someone enjoying the read from the outside for now. Could change. I hear Predators Keep is a soft target. TOTALLY no way for an attack there to go badly. 😉

    "Not that I can think of. As much as I'd like to account for every little contingency, keeping my walking around gear compact is a benefit in and of itself. Besides, I'd assume that with the festival underway they're sufficiently supplied. So unless we're under contract to carry something, the supply would far outstrip the demand. Or something like that." If there was something he wanted later, it wasn't like he couldn't return. They weren't going to be that far out. Compared to the rest of the continent, Blairville's outskirts were relatively close. That, and it wasn't like the city would cease to exist by Akiris leaving. Probably. To be fair, if something like that decided to swing by he'd rather not be caught up in it. @Enk Razorwood

    @PurplePanda If you say so. I suppose I'll never get why when others create anthropomorphized furries it's 'ok'. But when I pull out a 'smarter than the average bear' it's 'bad'. Meh, well I'm not sure I really have much to contribute other than a suggestion for the final boss of your dungeon. Here ya go!

    "No?" The belated response was barely more than a yawn, but after a moment the sound of movement could be heard beyond the door. "All ri', I'm up. Give me twenty minutes and I'll be down." Rolling out of bed Akiris rubbed the sleep out of his eyes and glanced about the room. He'd got a decent amount of etching done last night and had mostly replenished his supply of usable ammunition. It had come with the loss of some sleep, but he'd look a lot more if they blew his arm off. Satisfied that everything was in place, Akiris trudged his way over to the bathroom. There was one thing that could not be delayed nor denied. One downright glorious leak later..... Armor strapped on and backpack secured, Akiris meandered down the stairs and waved to Enk. "Sorry, took a bit longer than I thought it would but I'm ready." @Enk Razorwood

    Could I do something like this? << Technically the character would be under 17 years old. 🐻

    Strangely Dressed Man Requesting Children

    @PurplePanda Well, I'd have Ed stroll up to the door. Knock. Then politely request a chat. He would point out that the fliers declared this a magical business and therefore by Doughton's Safeguard would require a full disclosure of it's contents and practices. Failure to to so would result in the whole operation being deemed illegal and necessitating it's removal. Not an impossible task. Because while one can certainly hide inside an extradimensional space, introducing a substance know as ercaniron that is rather famous for causing chaos in structured magic does tend to collapse the entire project. Possibly not in the same way every time, but I have yet to be informed that it's a repeatable experience. So you see it is rather unsafe for your anchor point to be so exposed. One of these children you seem to be seeking might just sneak in something unfortunate. Or far more likely... Some miserable being might just think itself clever and toss a Brick. So shall we chat as civilized beings regarding the longevity and acceptability of this venture? _______________ Ok, Ed's a scary dude. Did not expect that to flow like that.

    @PurplePanda If Ed can locate a door standing in the town square of Doughton, then he can be an utter bastard of a safety inspector via some very fun use of cannon lore. -insert evil laughter here-

    While not heroes by any measure.... Any of my characters would pay this guy a visit to at the very least beat the crap out of him should they catch wind of this.

    I just started like to stay current on high profile events near where I have characters. It gives good reference material for in character conversation.

    Fright Night (LoD Open Community Thread)

    Is this happening near Patia or Blairville? All I saw was random town in Terrenus and it's a big contenent.

    Akiris watched Rafael leave considering his options and ultimately decided to voice them. "Water isn't a bad choice if the food is good. In fact, I'd consider it the best one in that case as it doesn't obscure part of the taste like wine. On the other hand, wine is self sanitizing. You really have to do something downright malicious to make that stuff unsafe to drink. Not that Rafael seems like a bad guy, but according to him this stuff has been sitting about unsupervised for a questionable amount of time. I'm rather worried about the food." Scanning the shelves Akiris selected a bottle of the red and retrieved it for the table. It wasn't like he was going to bolt into the night after all. Besides... "Unless I'm wrong about rib roast, it does take some time to cook. Hours from scratch if I'm not mistaken. Might as well get comfortable and head over to that feast in the morning."

    "Rib roast sounds fine." Actually, the though of prime rib roasted on its bones so the meat didn't touch the heating surface was better than fine. If this was the fare when the actual cook was out then Akiris would have to make a point to stop back when she was. Something to look forward too. "And... ah.." He trailed off looking at the drink selection. While Akiris enjoyed drinking the beverage, he certainly wasn't knowledgeable about all the different varieties and the melting pot that was Predators Keep didn't help matters. But when in doubt, ask those that know. "Something good to drink with it. Something tells me if I pick a bottle based on looks things will get a bit too interesting." @Enk Razorwood @LightningBolt

    Betting - an extremity for some loot

    @supernal Well, the geas would eventually kill the character if they welched on a lost bet. I suppose at the time of casting it would be attuned to the bet and upon a won bet it would summon the item in question then fade away. On a lost bet, it would activate and slowly kill the character if they avoided the set task. The kind of spell I'm thinking of with this would have something like a ten minute casting time and couldn't really stick to an unwilling participant at the time of casting. At the time of casting, once it's on, it's on. As for players, require some amount of cannon content on the specific character before they can place a bet. The bet is to be paid with service, so it makes sense for the organization to limit thier betting to those that have proven the ability to pay that service. This would be intended to prevent the system from being swamped by bets via throw away characters

    Betting - an extremity for some loot

    @supernal Well, cannon gain should require cannon risk. It's cannon after all, so it wouldn't make sense for one part of the thread to be upheld as cannon should another part get retconned. Cannon seems to be the limit breaker of character power and if someone had the time and patience, or friends to assist. One could deck out a character in a truly insane amount of gear. Which is balanced out by all of the effort put in. One could roll up a character to gamble with and should they lose... They can simply roll up another to try again with no risks. On the other hand, a character that was already invested in would have weight attached to the potential loss. Hmm....... There's this magic called a geas, in DnD it requires the cursed to complete a task lest they sicken and die. Since what's being bet is the item without the requisite posts then an easy equivelant would be required participation in an equivalent thread. It would be 'an offer that they can't refuse'. I think a shady organization that bets shiny loot against forced service would be easy to implement.
