The Great Escape: Breaking out of Dead Peaks Prison! [Takes place ~29AO]

Recommended Posts

Great, thank you very much! Helpful as always!

I'll probably write up a first post tomorrow to set the scene and try an announcement. If I don't hear after that, then I'll just keep the thread open and proceed as if it were solo. 🙂

Hmmm...... A prison break, you say? Dan may be up for this....

Yes indeed! Is there anything in particular you (Dan) would want to get out of this/directions you'd like to nudge in?

Well, Hmmm.
The reason Dan would be in there is because he heard this was inescapable. Dan LOVES breaking into the impregnable and escaping the inescapable.
Just ask Biazo Abbey.

Im not WHOLLY sure, but, being a son of hermes, and a serious klepto, he's probably gonna swipe everything of value he can.

On that note if he broke in to break out, he would have found that he could not escape, all of his abilities nerfed inside of the prison

He would have been biding his time until the moment that this escape happened, which was facilitated by the loci conflict, something he would have had no control over. Exposition for your post!

Also I definitely haven't forgotten about those priests you maimed / killed on the way out of stealing from an abbey. That’s a murderer, not a gentleman thief ... maybe that's how you wound up in there!

Look, that was The Other Guy, not Dan.
And he wasn't going to use his magic if he, well couldnt. Remember how I escaped first time? I used no magic. Just thief skills and the ability to grow wings from shoes I wear. I have raw talent, baby! My mega sick awesome abilities are a nice bonus. X)

I sort of . . . remember wings from shoes lol but that was outside of the supermax prison and outside of the magical dead zone right? If he broke in at any point before the loci conflict which switched magic on, he would have no magic. In being a prisoner, he wouldn't have those shoes to activate, let alone the question of whether they would activate in the prison to begin with

If he's in dead peaks prison, attempts to break out will have failed until the near miraculous circumstances that conspired to allow the particular prison break talked about in this check

To say it another way: if you want a place you can waltz into and tango out of that's not dead peaks prison

Yeah...my dude isn't a total weakling without magic and even then I had to give him an NPC prison friend since, inside Dead Peaks, the folks on top are the big bad fighter types who are still essentially death incarnate with their un-magicified bodies.

Another thing to note (I should've actually made this explicit, woops) is that this would going down in ~29AO IC.

29AO? Whats that mean?

The year this thread currently takes place, using the Terran calendar. Currently, in real time, the year is:

Terran Calendar: The current year is 31 AO = 599 WTA. All new threads happen during the current year unless otherwise stated by the creator.

You can find more information on it all right here in the good ol' lore article:

So that means this thread is taking place two years in the past, which would make sense considering the loci event.

All that said, may I sneak on in?

The winged shoes and mega speed and thief skills and stealth aren't magic, by the by, theyre genetic god traits.

29AO? Whats that mean?

Incidentally genetic traits are also controlled in the prison to avoid, for example, a siren that can emit sonic attacks due to its biology. I’d already considered this argument however many years ago I made the place 

If you can’t abide by the fact that supernatural abilities, however you want to define them, are controlled for until this event then this location isn’t the place you want to play. It isn’t an element you can game by saying “it isn’t magic, they’re god traits”
