Zepher posted a topic in Heroica! The RPG!Three fresh heroes, right off the presses, wander through the streets of Eubric trying to find their way to the docks. The city is a sprawling mess, and often times they end up in a back alley with no way out and have to retrace their steps. Their attempts to ask for directions go a little awry as well. "Just head to the water, you can't miss it!" "Diz is ridic-u-lous. You muzt know where it iz. 'Oo does not know where de docks are?" "What, ya not going to buy anything?!" "Oh, I wish I'd be invited to go places sometimes. Tell them Ratabor says hi... not that they know me. Oh, I wish I was invited places." Following a meandering trail they do eventually end up at the bay, and make their way along the wharfs until they see a small dingy at the edge of a run-down dock. The man on the boat is singing loudly, and on dock next to him stands a sailor and the U'Kin from the hall. The heroes approach. They are: Karl (surname unknown) (Bionicle_fanatic) 18 year old male human Rogue Level 1 Power Bonus: 0 Health: 7 Gold: 10 Equipment: Shuriken (WP:3) Inventory: Potion, Venom, Bedroll Boris Bruhalv (Waterbrick Down) 38 year old male vampire Cleric Level 1 Power Bonus: 0 Health: 9/9 Ether: 5/5 Gold: 10 Equipment: Simple Mace (WP: 3, mace) Inventory: Potion, Remedy Keliim the cruel (Mencot) Age 35, male human Barbarian Level 1 Power: 1 Health: 8/8 Gold: 10 Equipment: Rusty one handed battleaxe (WP: 3) Inventory: Potion, Mead "If all the bullocks, be forgot, and marry many wives, if all the banquets be you got, then that's the time to dine." "My good friend, I am not entirely sure that you have the words correct!" "Bull." The man in the dingy spits into the ocean. The heroes, lingering back a little ways, notice the stench of booze and the slurring of words. Apparently all three of these fellows had just come from the bars. "Are you certain you'll be make it home, Lane, you're certain?" "Course I will!" Lane holds up the frying pan he has in hand. "Got my paddle, got my presents and rations-" he jerks his thumb, indicating a chest in the back. "And got a companion too. Damn rascal will keep me safe." Lane leans in close to the others in an attempt to whisper, but he fails. "Don't tell no one, but I think this dog is magic. Did I tell you how I found him? A bunch a' frogs came up to my front door and left him there. Weird stuff, out there." Lane looks down at the water. "Hel, I think the tide is going out. This is how I get home every year boys. The rides more pleasant than the visit, I'll tell you that. 'Sides, look like your heroes are here." He points to the heroes, and raises his voice. "Don't sink any good for nothing ships this time, you bastards!" And with that he dips the frying pan into the ocean and begins to paddle away. "Ah, hello heroes, my name is U'Ordiussum and hello to you her-" "You can call him U'Or. Much easier." The other man offers his hand. "My name is Captain Elba. Sorry for having you meet us here. We were just seeing off our friend, Captain Lane. I was a Bonaparte once. And when you're on the sea..." Elba's eyes mist over a little: "Friendship runs deep. It has to. I love working for Guffington, but... well, U'Or and Daneeka are wonderful friends, but they aren't really the sea-faring type." "I get queasy on the sea I get queasy." "So, first things are first. Before we head out, I'd like to know who I'm adventuring around with today. What are your names, boys?" OoC: Mencot, if you could post a smaller icon (we usually go with 100x100) that'd be great. Fantatic, I see you have 10 gold and a bedroll. Not sure how that's possible, as I believe you'd have to buy a bedroll, but perhaps someone gifted it to you?
