Sir Edam feeds each head of CerDives a sandwich and meditates some more. If he gets disturbed/attacked, he'll fight the intruder with his circular blade instead.

"Bet you all wish you went with the 'Lets not and say we did' option now, huh?" Itchy taunts, then he meditates and has his swarm and ant attack the same guy as last time, or if he's dead already the closest enemy.

Cer-Dives takes a moment to gulp down as many of the three offered sandwiches as possible, before she continues to chew on the guards.

Strides teleports Dives' target, being the healthiest, into the air, dropping to 1mp.

Loud blasts the remaining guard, dropping to 3mp.

Jack meditates to 3mp.

Hot Air casts depravation on the man, dropping to 1mp, disabling the man.

Sir tosses three sandwiches into the air to allow each of Dives' heads to eat, which unfortunately still only heals the middle head to 3hp, then meditates to 5mp.

Stands intends to toss a shaped charge at the man, not quite breaking through his defence and dropping to 4mp.

Itchy begins taunting the last guard (That is still safely on the ground), "Bet you all wish you went with the 'Lets not and say we did' option now, huh?" He then meditates to 3mp and sets his swarm and ant to attack the man again, killing him as the swarm disperses.

The last guy should take a couple more turns to reach the ground.


SPOILERS:So you've essentially won the game, unless you want to try to save the falling guy, only to brutally slaughter him in some unique way. You're now all murderers! Erm, congratulations?

They can come back. They said their clerics were good. Also, I freed all the people at the feast. Next turn I'll unearth the crushed body.

Aye, but the fact they can be revived doesn't mean you didn't kill them in the first place. Along with the creatures way back in the caves. The cat and elemental/golem/whateverImadeitIcan'tremember were justified, but the birds never actually dealt any damage.

It's not murder if it's self defense, which fighting the guards certainly was.

SPOILERS:Very sorry to say so, but what weird kind of GM are you, making our chars fight for our lives/freedom, if they want to or not, and afterwards tell us/them: "Congratulations, you are now all murderers"? :o
Either implement a way to get out of EVERY situation without having to kill someone or don't say things like that. :roll:
Also, we saved the bunnies!



That being said, thank you for hosting the game, I enjoyed playing it. Some epilogue would be nice, where the chars end up now, and if the keep their magical talents, and if their performance actually helped the guy from the start in any way. Oh, and if Dives can reverse to her Goblin form. :lol:

SPOILERS:And it's not like we didn't try any diplomacy before the battle. They said they wanted to become adventurers by killing some monsters, well then they'd better prepared for some monsters kicking their adventuring a$$e$.
Not our problem if not all of them are smart enough to run when they see us - or to ask their boss what they're up against.

A) Killing is killing, regardless of justification or not.
B) Who says you couldn't have found a way to leave without killing?
C) Achievement get: Cowardly; hide behind the other people while they take the hits for you.
D) Epilogue? Yeah, that's possible. It's about 10 at night for me right now, so it won't be happening any time soon. That and where you go from there is completely up to you, so it wouldn't be much of an epilogue. I'll work on it anyway.

Excuse me if I've seemed to be saying things that are unfair or don't make sense, I've been in an odd mood of late and don't know why.

SPOILERS:It's probably because of X-mas, having the whole family in one spot (even when it's a small family) , not to mention that everyone wants it to be the perfect holidays can be quite stressing. Since you're from Australia, you currently have the summer-months, so at least the 'I aught to be in hibernation' and the 'Why the hell is it already getting dark again?' don't apply to you.

I may well use the characters again in future, as I have done before, but this sort of game won't show up again from me for a while. I'll be getting started on an epilogue some time today, if I can motivate myself to do anything, lazy blighter I am. Okay, epilogue's done so far as someone like me can do with writing.

[Epilogue]

The party of goblins had completed the challenges set before them and in doing so, won their freedom. For one final time before they left the cave system, the man that had captured them in the beginning of this adventure of sorts, and told them that they had earned the skill that had allowed them to escape, and his men would cause no trouble for the goblins when they left.

The party would not know it, but this step in the human's research allowed him to reach his goal of unlocking one's magical potential, but without causing any harm to those the process was used upon. This consequently lead to the defeat of many armies who invaded the lands, seeking treasure and even some hoping to learn how the soldiers they fought against had learned to use their power, no enemy made it further than the first villages on the outskirts of the realm.

As for what happened to the party of goblins who had been the first to acquire magical powers, there are many rumours of what they did with their freedom, and just as many possibilities. Some say they returned to their homes to protect their families, some believe they continued to adventure together, or with others, but if they did, those adventures have yet to be recorded.

And I enjoy attempting to develop a game, whether it shows or not. Anyway, next game I make will have graphics, but it may take a while, I'm out of ideas for the concept, and in a couple of weeks I'm going to be starting on an internship that will be pulling me out of school one day a week, so I may be a bit busy catching up on the work I miss.

Sir Edam would like to stay with Dives, her compassion for creatures that need help - like the bunnies in a dungeon - made quite an impression on him.




Also, I'm pretty sure there are enough metal trace elements in a goblin's body to enable her to turn up the heat on him whenever she feels like it... Or not. Her choice. :wink: :lol:

Thanks for GMing this Dlover, I think Dives will continue to research magic, I guess there is still a level above Cerberus summoning ... maybe Cerubim summoning :lol:
But first Dives has to find out how to safely return into her normal body.
There are bunnies to release into freedom, and a whole bunch of animals in the cage room and humans in the feast room to rescue.
And then there is still Chuckles. Maybe Dives finds a friendly necromancer, who is willing to help him getting a whole moveable body of bones - for that all of his skeleton needs to be retrived.
So Dives has all hands, paws and maws full of work left to do.
