The players finally realise that this game is not going to bend over for them unless they are going to kiss it's arse :) I love the sense of dawning realisation in this session. It is a thing of beauty.

Well spotted sir.

It should be fixed now. One of the drawbacks of using my little netbook. It is easy to miss little bits of code like that.

Cheers

No Problem, you should install xml starlet, it's a quick little xml parsing utility, that among other things can validate your xml file before upload :).

http://xmlstar.sourceforge.net/

real easy to use too..

xml val filename.xml

thanks for the fix!

I absolutely agree! I have run about a dozen detective/police procedural stories in my campaign this year, and I don't think some of the party understands yet that this is primarily a mystery, and in a good, challenging mystery some lines of investigation will close or just not bear fruit.

That being said, I love the way Ulrich will just doggedly pursue some circular argument until the other person is so off-balance that they just give in. He was badgering the guard in front of the jail for nearly twenty minutes. It was like a Who's On First routine.

(walks up to gate)
"I want to go in and ask her a question."
"Well, you can't go in."
"Why not?"
"Because this is a JAIL, and people can't go in and out as they please. That's why they call it 'jail.'"
"But it'll only take a second; you just could let me in right now."
"No I couldn't just - I'm only a corporal in the town guard..."
"So?"
"So I follow orders or I get fired."
"But I want to go in and ask her a question."
"Well, you can't go in."
"Why not?"
"Because this is a JAIL, and people can't go..."
(lather - rinse - repeat)

Ditto for trying to get the boatsman to let him ride for free.

Alright. Having listened to it, I must agree, another good episode. However...was it just my imagination, or did Ned call us all "boobies" as he was fading out?

You should feel honored. Those are just some of his favorite things.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;
Bright copper cock rings and black leather mittens;
Brown leather ball gags all tied up with strings;
These are a few of my favorite things.........

I've said I was sorry. I can't help it. I'm just a 5'-6" Dwarf of the Ironhead clan. :fighter:

For some reason Hal got into the gods this time and picked up on the fact that Myrmidia is a foreign goddess (ironicaly even her own religious order can't aggree if she's from Tilea or Estalia, basicaly she's from Estalia but her high temple is in Tilea and the Tilerans are trying to suppress all proof of her estalian origins).

He didn't pick up on the fact that Morr is an estalian god (kind of explains the very latino attitude towards death). Manann the god of the sea is blatantly named after Manann the celtic god of the sea. Shallya is apparently Bretonian. Ranald might be foreign too. I know Sigmar and Ulric are imperial (as are probably Rhya and Taal). I didn't know that Talabecland was named after Taal 'till recently so I'm considering pronouncing it slightly differently.

Verena might be Tilean too. The imperial pantheon has a lot of foreign imports. Amusingly the dwarfs don't do religion. Their form of ancestor worship is both much more literal and much less so.

You know, I never really thought about it before, but dwarves are rarely very religious in fantasy, are they? Either they go for the Deistic approach (God made us, then moved on), ancestors (though much rarer), or full-blown atheism. Also, for some reason, they're almost always serious pragmatists with very literal mindsets, almost as a racial trait...

I once wrote a story in which the introduction of hard liquor to that kind of Dwarf society turned them into a bunch of raving, eternally-drunken lunatics. I'd say I almost prefer that to the typical "rock-and-stone minded" dwarf...

Anyway, thank you for further the religions of the world, Balgin.
