And I totally would've picked Clan of the Dark Mountains. I don't know why.... your name is better.

Good luck!

Ok, looks like Burned by Flames is Chief of the Clan of the Mountain Halls! I've updated the first post with your character backgrounds and roles and have changed Travels colour to a purple so he stands out from Finds Truth.

If any of you would prefer the 'Tank' body shape then just let me know ('Wears A Coat' was a tank in the Apprentices, but it doesn't come with bonuses this time, just variation on the standard look).

Done. As Chief you also carry a talisman heirloom which has been passed down the line of Chiefs for as long as anyone can remember. It's a plot device so you have to carry it, but sadly it also makes Flames look rather like a pimp. Ah well, sure you'll find a shirt soon :)

This has all gone off on a terrible tangent... My poor game, dragged down into smut and depravity so early in its existence...

Normally it'll be around 8pm GMT. I'm at home sick today though, so will probably get the first one up sooner, but it'll still be a few hours yet.

Chapter One
Main objective: Find the Entrance to the Mountain Halls.


Turn One
And so it was that although many goblins volunteered to travel to the mountain with Chief Burned by Flames, only seven were eventually chosen as his companions for the usual arbitrary reasons. Leaving everything they ever owned behind in the care of the rest of the clan (in true adventuring style), the travellers set out northwards for the lands they once ruled over.

After weeks of enduring indescribable horrors in the forests (during which time no-one learned anything or collected anything useful), the goblins eventually emerged from the great expanse of trees into the foothills of a vast mountain range. Thank the gods you never have to go back into those woods again! Shame about the rain, but at least you made it.

Image

"So this is it? Where's do we find our fabled Mountain Stronghold then?"
"Yeah, where's the entrance? It's damned wet out here.
"...Ummm... Well, it's definitely around here somewhere. The map was a bit vague on specifics, but it's definitely... somewhere. Look, there's the forest to the south, the cliffs to the west and the river to the east - it's definitely in this area. We just need to find it...
"And this is obviously the only bit of wilderness in the entire world fitting that vague descr- Holy shit a rabbit!

ITEM: [Clan Talisman] - Passed down the line of Chiefs for as long as anyone can remember.
ITEM: [Rabbit Talisman] - Found by Eaten during his youth. Repels rabbits when used.

NEXT UPDATE ---->
----------------------------------------

Hooray! The game is afoot!
Ok, to clarify a couple of things just now: black borders at the edge of an image indicate that you cannot go that way (no matter how much you want to), and entering an unexplored space or attacking a creature will end your turn. Otherwise the rules are pretty standard and laid out in the introductory post.

Secondly, if anyone else wants the 'Tank' look that Flames is currently sporting just give me a shout and I'll update your sprite.

Thirdly, if you guys or lurkers want to make maps / fanart / whatever that is fine by me. The only thing I would ask is that lurkers don't spoil any of the puzzles :)

Obviously, we must head east, as the rabbit has guarded the pathway to the west.

"Allright goblins, the most likely path will be somewhere at the cliff, but we can't know for sure. I'll be heading west, together with two of you. Three of you will then explore either north or east, and the two remaining one will scout out the other direction. If you run into any trouble, shout and we'll come to help."

I'm moving to the west

If anybody disagrees of the tactic of splitting up, I can agree to go for another tactic if you guys want to.

"Right, Chief. I guess I'll go North with whoever want to go with." FindsTruth says as he wait for anyone else, then heads in that direction. "Perhaps the answer will be there."

"In that case, I'll head east to the river to see if it cuts into the mountains somewhere." Splits goes east with whoever else is going that way.

Silver Tongue gestures towards the north and huddles himself against the driving rain, waiting for the other goblins going north to assemble.

"...eep"

After hastily retreating to the safe zone behind the other goblins, Eaten considers his options.

"Alright, the most obvious choice would be to get as far as possible from the beast by heading east. However, what if that's what it wants me to think?!? It could be hearding me into an ambush! With the river on one side, and them on the other, I'd be trapped! Well, this is one goblin you aren't getting your filthy paws on, you monsters!"

Turning suddenly, Eaten runs full speed to the west, aiming for the gap above the rabbit and trying to keep the chief and any other goblins heading that way between him and it as much as possible.

OOC: Does Eaten still have the talisman from his backstory, or did he lose it in the forest? There's no way he would have left it at home, no matter what he was ordered to do.
