The work is finally finished and the castle is erected


The indoors of the castle are members only and include an office for payment, recruitment and other administrative tasks and is manned by a few elderly warriors who can no longer go into battle, the hearth is a place to drink your beer and get a free warm meal in between jobs and to generally unload some steam, it's manned by a few young maids and an ex-mercenary barman, however be warned any brawling in here will be punished, sleeping quearters feature a dozen bunkbeds which can be used by members. The armory is where you can get weapons and armours for a good discount and custom fitted to you, all members receive a free shield with the guilds logo on it (not yet made), the temple is public and is made for the several wargods that may be worshipped.

Outside the castle you see a few wooden desks and a few men manning those desks, these are where you can get jobs, everyoen can take one, but the better jobs are reserved for members.

((Warning during these jobs I will godmode, just view me as your pleasant little DM that tries to make it fun))
(( Remember the things you see here are actual jobs already posted, just claim you want to go on a job and I will create the necessary threads, these are small plots and you can earn some cash with it and sometimes loot some nice items, there might be a risk that I won't let you go to a job, because you need more men or aren't powerfull enough, in that case I will say so. Also the jobs are treated as seperate timelines, much like trials, this way if I need to go offline you can still do stuff...))
Anyone can post a job, but must pay the necessary reward plus a small fee for the guild, the guild will determine the price.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 03:37 PM
(( Welcome to the warrior's guild! ))

2007-01-24, 04:44 PM
A male drow in black dragon scale armor and with two longswords at his side ((see spoiler)) enters the castle.

"Hello, this place seems interesting and I'm bored. How can I become a member ? But first, what are the rights and liabilities of a member ?"

((You should put the castle map in a spoiler or rather make a link to it, it stretches the page))

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 04:49 PM
A veteran warriors looks at him, As a member you have the right to use all facility's in the castle and get acces to the jobs for members only, liabilities vary per job, generally, the higher the pay, the higher the risk, if you die while doing a job, the guild will make sure you get a proper burial. You may not fight the other members while on guild grounds, unless in a challenge approved by the guild. Outside guild grounds the rules are more lenient, but you are advised not to, the rest is common sense and we will see fit to punish you if we think you deserve so.

2007-01-24, 04:57 PM
"Ok, then I want to become a member. I am Rakhsicz Ka'Ryssol. Do I need credentials or pass a test ? I fought in the arena against Mortia. I lost, but I lasted longest of all against him to this day."

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 04:59 PM
Not really, if you don't live up to the expectations you die, though I would prefer if you started with a lower risk job so we can assess your abilities. If you want to formalize this, I suggest we step into the office.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 05:31 PM
A golem arrives and has a brief chat with one of the warriors, the golem leaves with 15 well armed archers and goes towards the cemetary.

2007-01-24, 05:49 PM
Rakhsicz folllows the warrior into the office.

((Offline very soon))

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 06:00 PM
((I'll make this quick then))

The warrior quickly finalizes the deal and hands Rakjsicz a small shield, Through this we can contact you or vica versa regarding guild matter, if you tap it twice on the emblem it will enlarge for actual use, if you need to sleep, the bedrooms are acroos the hall and next to here is the hearth where you can get a good beer and oggle the maids, any other questions?

2007-01-24, 09:46 PM
Silas enters and looks around.

"Who's in charge here?"

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 09:50 PM
That would be me, how may I help you?

2007-01-24, 09:52 PM
"Yes, what grounds and authority did you have to kill those demons today?"

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 09:53 PM
Erm, I'm sorry we get a lot of jobs, most of them invloving creatures of evil, could you perhap specify?

2007-01-24, 09:54 PM

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 09:56 PM
My god good man, which graveyard? the warrior sighs, how about we go to the office where I actually have the files about all of it, if you could follow me, oh and watch out for the step on your way in....

2007-01-24, 09:58 PM
Ekrath walks inside
Can I join this guild?

2007-01-24, 09:58 PM
Silas follows the man.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 10:00 PM
The warrior faces Elkrath, Yes you can, but at the moment I am a bit busy, would you mind to talk to one of the lower ranking member's and asking them for the rules after that you can come back to me in my office to finalize it all.

The warrior steps in his office, Now very well, I will need some specifics to look up the file, meaning where was it and what kind of demons

2007-01-24, 10:01 PM
"Town Cemetary. Don't know what kind of demons because you're people shot them down so fast."

2007-01-24, 10:03 PM
Ekrath get the rules and regulations from a member walking around and then enters the office, but hangs by the back to allow the warrior to finish his job.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 10:04 PM
Hmm ah yes, let me see, here it is, the man picks a file from a cabinet and opens it, What do you want to know about it?

2007-01-24, 10:11 PM
"On what grounds and authority did you have to kill them?"

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 10:18 PM
Hmmm let's see, it seems that these demons were part of a large group that has been going around town lately, we have had to kill all of those we encountered, plus I was told Lord Riddletuck had asked the demons to leave and then they...erm...they attacked him by flinging a skull to his head, quite the mischievious ones these. Now if you want I can bring over the men in question for questioning, but they were only given orders, so it is not more then fair that I as the one in command gain responsiblity...

The warrior quickly gives Elkrath the needed papers and the small shield, anything else?

2007-01-24, 10:18 PM
Ekrath takes the paper and sheild and says You know where to find me. He then heads out

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 10:19 PM
The warriors quickly files it and yells that he should check the job board if anything suits him.

2007-01-24, 10:35 PM
"I'm going to need you and any people involved to come down to the station."

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 10:37 PM
Very well, the man quickly calls out all names and it doesn't lasy long before they're in a straight marching colonne, anytime you're ready officer...

2007-01-24, 10:38 PM

Silas leaves.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-24, 10:39 PM
FORWARD MARCH! The men march to the station.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-25, 10:48 AM
One of the NPC's tapes down some more jobs and an OOC note

2007-01-25, 12:40 PM
The warrior quickly finalizes the deal and hands Rakjsicz a small shield, Through this we can contact you or vica versa regarding guild matter, if you tap it twice on the emblem it will enlarge for actual use, if you need to sleep, the bedrooms are acroos the hall and next to here is the hearth where you can get a good beer and oggle the maids, any other questions?

"Yes, where can I get my first mission ?", asks the drow. "And will you I get protection from my signicicant other if she catches me ogling the maids ?"

Deus Mortus
2007-01-25, 12:44 PM
The job offers are in front, just tell me which one you want to go on, I might say no if I believe you aren't up to the task, you may also ask another member of the guild to join you, in this case the reward is split in between, we do not offer any protection, though you may hire a bodygaurd from the guild with some discount. If you want I can also send you to one of the lower jobs right away, I would prefer this since I haven't seen you do your work yet and don't know how good you are.

((Please PM or post what class you are and stuff like that, so I can effectively let you do what you want, when on jobs like this, you can consider me a DM and what I say goes, it isn't godmodding, but simply me trying to make it a fun experience...))

2007-01-25, 01:04 PM

"The dragon caves sound interesting."

Deus Mortus
2007-01-25, 01:07 PM
I would prefer you started on a low level job so I can see what you have in store, how about the rat investation, should be a quicky and allows me to see what you are made of...

2007-01-25, 01:10 PM
"Rats ! Ok ..."

Deus Mortus
2007-01-25, 01:11 PM
I know not the most triumphant and exciting mission, but it'll serve my purposes of getting a quick picture of how powerfull you are, will you accept?

2007-01-25, 01:14 PM
"Rats ! So be it."

Deus Mortus
2007-01-25, 01:22 PM
Very well, there has been a rat problem in the slums, we tracked it down to one specific house, just go there and kill them all.

2007-01-25, 01:30 PM
"Ok, I'll be back.", says Rakhsicz and leaves the guild.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-25, 01:31 PM
The Captain nods and returns to his other business

((The thread for the house (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32771)))

Deus Mortus
2007-01-25, 07:55 PM
((Amiria, you do need to return if you want the 50 gold reward, reference that you were done and perhaps a tip for a follow up job...))

2007-01-26, 01:50 AM
Rakhsicz returns to the guild. His cloak has some holes and his face and his boots show some scratches and biting marks. "Hey, I'm back and the job is done. There was a weird annoying wererat in the cellar who called himself the ratmaster. But I killed him and all of his squeaking minions"

Deus Mortus
2007-01-26, 06:08 AM
The captain quickly makaes a small report on this and hands the drow a small pouch of gold. Do you wish for another job?

2007-01-26, 01:25 PM
"Yes, but later. First I'll go to a temple and see if I catched some disease from those filthy rodents.", says Rakhsicz and bounces away.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-26, 01:38 PM
The captain sighs, Idiots, all of them, there's a bloody temple right around the corner...

2007-01-26, 06:11 PM
Ekrath walks in and says I'll take the Thug Leader job.

2007-01-26, 09:43 PM
((Sorry for the 2-post))
Ekrath leaves the guild.

2007-01-26, 09:46 PM
((Just a hint but you can copy paste your orginal post and add on your new stuff. Then delete your old post. That way you get a bump without a double post))

Deus Mortus
2007-01-26, 10:04 PM
((Alkrath, you would actually need an explanation for this, so let's just assume this is in between you asking and you leaving, next time remember once you ask for a job, it becomes a seperate timeline like a trial, you are instantly there but can still exist outside it.))

There's a bunch of slum thugs who holed up in a cave outside town near the coast, kill the leader, but try not to kill too much of his henchmen, they will scatter afterwards anyway.

2007-01-27, 02:05 PM
Ekrath walks in.
Anyone want this hammer?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 02:06 PM

2007-01-27, 02:07 PM
Ummm. Why?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 02:08 PM

2007-01-27, 02:10 PM
Nixxus? But he said he had been kidnapped... Wasn't the big guy with the hammer the leader?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 02:11 PM
You mean to say that you let Nixxus slip out of our hands because you thought he was kidnapped, the captain looks at Ekrath with disbelieve.

(( I have to go, I'll be back in 15 minutes or something like that ))

2007-01-27, 02:13 PM
Well he was in a locked room! Look it's no big deal. I've got my hammer and can take him down easily.
((Yeah I gotta go soon as well))

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 02:19 PM
Too late, guards already reported his ship leaving the harbor and what hammer are you talking about?

2007-01-27, 02:21 PM
This Hammer. The Hammer of Vengeance. Also you forget 2 things. 1. I have a 60 ft fly speed due to having 20 lvls of favored soul. 2. I happen to own earings of teleportation. I could catch him, easy.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-27, 06:19 PM
Drake comes in. Is this the Warrior's Guild? How do I become a member?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 08:00 PM
Well then don't stand around here blabbering to me and go catch that fool, also when you return I want to talk to you about that hammer, but right now I want you to catch the. What are you still waiting for GO!

The captain turns around to face Drake, Yes and you do so by talking to me, the captain quickly explains the rules and then gives Drake some papers to fill in asking his name, race, classes and levels plus any other special information.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-27, 10:04 PM
Drake fills out the papers.

((Drake Darrow
Human Male
Scout 12/Swashbuckler 3/Duelist 10))

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 10:07 PM
Good now, I must aks you to pick one of the low level jobs so that we can see your level of skills. The captain files away the papers and gives Drake the small shield.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-27, 10:17 PM
Drake examines the list and then asks quietly, These bandits mentioned up here... Could you tell me more about that assignment?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 10:24 PM
Yeah, a few soldiers who didn't make enough money once the war in their country was over, they've been robbing people along the countryside, they have a small camp there, we haven't been able to pinpoint it's location, so this might be perfect for you, now preferrably I want you to do this without killing any, they were good men who fought a long war like many of the people here, if you can ask them to turn up here and join this guild, I will be quite pleased, I'll give you another 50 gold for every soldier you bring in here like that.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-27, 10:30 PM
Drake considers. I actually don't have any skill in tracking. I take it that divinations have failed to locate them?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-27, 10:34 PM
Yes, hmmm maybe another job might be better for you, perhaps the bounty on Ren Lilfun, he's a noble who pissed of some people when he slept with their daughters and left with the break of dawn, I heard he's hanging around Lord Riddletuck's mansion, if you want you can easily challenge him to a duel, young noblemen like that are very honourfull when it involves showing off, just make sure you do it in front of some lovely dames.

((I have to go now, if you accept the job I will create the thread tomorrow))

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-27, 10:37 PM
Drake smiles. I believe I can arrange that... I'll take it.

2007-01-27, 10:47 PM
Ekrath teleports out to the ship.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-27, 10:51 PM
Drake leaves to begin the preparations for his job.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-28, 05:04 PM
Drake, accompanied by three beautiful women, enters. The job is done.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-28, 05:36 PM
Very well, fill in the papers for a report and talk to me if you want another job, the captain hands Drake the reward.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-28, 05:45 PM
Drake fills out the papers and hands them to the appropriate person. He then turns to the ladies and smiles at them. Well, ladies, I hired you for 2 hours, but thanks to the screwiness of plot-time, I think that we still have quite a bit of that left. I'm sure you know where I'm going with this.

They smirk at him and nod. Back to the Toss and Roll, then? Tanako suggests, taking his arm.

Drake nods, and they leave.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-28, 05:56 PM
Mercenary's and whores, nothing can keep them apart, the captain sighs and returns to his business

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-30, 01:17 PM
Drake enters the grounds and goes over to the board with the job notices pinned on it. He takes one down and goes to the nearest captain, demanding in his quiet voice, I completed this job just the other day. Why is it still posted?

Getting no response, Drake turns on his heel and leaves.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-30, 01:51 PM
One of the NPC's quickly takes away the job from the board.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-30, 03:02 PM
Captain Normandy, 15 markmen and 20 swordsmen march out.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-30, 03:55 PM
The captain and the troops teleport back in, READY THE PORTAL!

Soon a collosal portal starts forming in front of the guild.

When the portal is done 50 thousand soldiers march out of it, they are entirely covered by black plate armour and wear long dark red capes, black armored wings sprout from their backs.

The captains start to instruct the soldiers.


The captains are done and they each grab a mount armored much like the soldiers including wings and take off with the army in their wake towards the heavenly exile HQ.

2007-01-30, 09:59 PM
Ekrath teleports in, with nixxus slung over his shoulder.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-30, 10:03 PM
A lieutenant walks towards him, "The captains aren't here right now, but I'll handle the rest, here are the papers plus reward, just hand me the guy"

2007-01-30, 10:05 PM
After all the trouble it took to catch this guy, only the captains get him. Besides according to the sign only 1 captain is out. The other 3 are here.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-30, 10:07 PM
The liuetenant dissapears and you hear some faint curses coming from Nixxus.

2007-01-30, 10:08 PM
Ekrath whack Nixxus with the hammer, trying to knock him out for a while, but not kill him.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-30, 10:17 PM
He faints one more and Captain Beaumont walks out, I see you caught Nixxus.

2007-01-30, 10:41 PM
Yeah and it wasn't easy. Also, you wanted to see my hammer?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-31, 06:42 AM
Well let's take care of the bounty first, hand him to me will you?

2007-01-31, 04:13 PM
Ekrath hands Nixxus over to the captain

(He's either A) an illusion B) A shapeshifter or C) an evil minion.))

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-31, 04:20 PM
Drake comes in.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-31, 04:21 PM
Yeah that's the guy alright, the captain slices the man's throat and hands you the regular paperwork and reward. When you're done, go to the temple, I think Captain Rendar is in there and he told me he wanted to talk to you about that hammer.

The captain motions Drake to come to him.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-31, 04:23 PM
Drake goes over.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-31, 04:24 PM
Go with Ekrath to the temple, if I know Rendar, he'll probably have a mission for you two about that damn hammer. Man always seem to think of some magic quest or another.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-31, 04:26 PM
Drake nods. I'll do that.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-31, 04:28 PM

((I mean the temple on the guild grounds))

2007-01-31, 04:29 PM
((W00T! 2 missions done))
Ekrath looks at his hammer.
What's wrong with my hammer?

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-31, 04:30 PM
Drake goes over to Ekrath and waits until they start going to the temple.

2007-01-31, 04:33 PM
Ekrath sighs and begins walking to the temple

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-31, 04:36 PM
Drake follows.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-31, 04:50 PM
You enter the Temple and within is captain Rendar, Ah good to see you both, now about that hammer, could you please give it to me for a second, I need to check if my information is correct...

2007-01-31, 05:11 PM
Ekrath reluctantly hands over the hammer.

Deus Mortus
2007-01-31, 05:14 PM
The captains grabs the hammer and drips a small drop of red fluid onto it, which instantly turns blue, he hands the hammer back to Ekrath, Yup it's like I thought, this is the hammer of vengeance legacy of the ancient dwarven kings, I'm not going to ask you to give it away, but I do want you and Drake to tell the Dwarves about it, they have a prophecy stating something about it and I think there was an armor involved, I don't knwo the specifics, but the way I see it, it could be some nice extra magical equipment.

Lord Iames Osari
2007-01-31, 05:16 PM
So where do we go?

2007-01-31, 05:17 PM
Alright. We'll go right now. Drake you ready?

Deus Mortus
2007-01-31, 05:18 PM
To the ancient dwarven city of Stonehaven, here is a map to it. He hands you a map with the location of the city.

2007-01-31, 05:20 PM
To Stonehaven!
Ekrath grabs Drake and teleports

2007-02-01, 03:28 PM
Rakhsicz returns to the guild. "Hey, any new jobs for me ?"

Deus Mortus
2007-02-01, 03:39 PM
The captain faces him, sure just check the job board.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-09, 10:14 AM
Captain Normandy returns to the guild and yells at a few scryers before returning to his office.

Hivemind Ghost
2007-02-09, 03:54 PM
Suryc walks in. He goes up to the job list.

Hmm... I don't have to be a member to take the bandit job, correct? Very well. I am a capable swordsman, I believe I can deal with a few bandits. When can I leave, and where do I go?

Deus Mortus
2007-02-09, 07:10 PM
Good, but since you are not a member we take an extra 5% fee, but joining is free so I recommend that.

Hivemind Ghost
2007-02-10, 05:30 AM
Alright then, I'll join.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-10, 08:37 AM
Very well, fill out these papers and I'll put you on the job, the captain gives Suryc some papers and the small shield. The shield is used for communications, completely telepathic, just touch it and think of what you want to say, tapping it twice enlarges it so you can use it as a shield.

Hivemind Ghost
2007-02-10, 10:33 AM
Suryc fills out the papers, then hands them back to the captain.

About the job, the bandits are few soldiers who didn't make enough money once the war in their country was over, they've been robbing people along the countryside, they have a small camp there, we haven't been able to pinpoint it's location, now preferably I want you to do this without killing any, they were good men who fought a long war like many of the people here, if you can ask them to turn up here and join this guild, I will be quite pleased, I'll give you another 50 gold for every soldier you bring in here like that.

Alright then.

Suryc leaves the guild, and makes his way to the countryside where he bandits have been seen.

Nine archers walk onto the Warrior's Guild, with a rather large elf leading them.

The leader asks the first important looking person he sees:

Where do we sign up?

Deus Mortus
2007-02-10, 09:20 PM
After waiting for a while, the leader notices that he was talking to a very well made statue, fortunately the captain is near, You'd be signing up with me.

2007-02-10, 09:22 PM
Thank you. That is a very well made statue, I must say. What do I sign precisely?

Deus Mortus
2007-02-10, 09:27 PM
Each of you will have to sign these papers and they will get a shield, which can be used as a telepathic communique to me or any of the other captains by touching it and when tapped twice turns into a shield. However since you are arriving in a group I take it you nine want to be in active duty as this group?

2007-02-10, 09:31 PM
Definitely a group. I am commander of these 8.

Just give us the papers already, calls out Ianold, one of the two Dwarves in the group.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-10, 09:47 PM
Very well, I will make sure you are registered as a group, also you may tell your dwarven subordinate that we don't look kindly on disrespect to superiors, just sign the papers and your done. The Captain hands the commander the papers and shields.

((What are the classes and levels of your group?))

2007-02-10, 09:52 PM
((F=Fighter, O=Order of the Bow Initiate: Moon (Leader) F14 O10, Elros (Elf)F8 O4, Ianold (Dwarf) F10 O2, Thoben (Gnome) F6 O6, Elian (Halfling) F8 O4, Davhorn (Half-Orc) F10 O2, Leoeak (Halfling) F8 O4, Alucaryn (Elf) F8 O4, and Breerris (Dwarf) F6 O6))

Thank you sir. I think he knows that, he gets rather impatient at times.

He sighs.

They are an interesting squad to work with, to say the least.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-10, 09:58 PM
You are marked down, however for the time being our office is rather overworked, so you will have to wait a day or at most two until we can provide you with a starter job, in the mean time you can relax in our small inn and sleep in the sleeping quarters.

2007-02-10, 10:02 PM
Thank you. Does the Guild have targets to practice on?

Deus Mortus
2007-02-10, 10:11 PM
There are some targets in the smithy, just pick them up and plant them at the back of the building.

2007-02-10, 10:14 PM

He turns to the others:

Bright and early* we go out back to practice. Dismissed!

Moon goes to the sleeping chambers, while the other 8 go to the inn, eventually going to the sleeping chambers.

*((Or, in other words, when I wake up tomorrow.))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-10, 10:15 PM
((Sorry for the delay, but I'm a bit busy, I think I can squeeze in the time tomorrow ;) ))

2007-02-11, 08:55 AM
((The delay is fine. It gives the characters time to get used to the area. It's Order of the Bow Initiate not Moon. In the Complete Warrior if you have it.))

Moon wakes up all the others in the squad, has them grab targets, and takes them out back.

They immediately begin practicing.

Most of the time they hit bulls-eyes, except for Elian, the worst shot of the group.


After a while Moon tells them that practice is over, and they can do what they want.

Of course they all head off to Trog's.

Moon leaves a note saying:
"We'll be at Trog's tavern if you need us."

2007-02-11, 12:33 PM
Squad 1 returns from Trog's and Moon takes the note.

Most of them just stand around and talk, but Moon goes out back to get some practice, firing an arrow a second.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-11, 12:40 PM
((The job for you guys will have to wait to tomorrow, or perhaps later tonight if I can convince my damn employer to pay me my money))

2007-02-11, 12:42 PM
((That's fine, if it is tomorrow I can get to it around 3:30PM EST.))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-11, 12:52 PM
((What is that board time?))

2007-02-11, 12:59 PM
((I think that it is Board Time actually, give or take a few minutes.))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-11, 01:02 PM
((So it's around 8 PM for you now?))

2007-02-11, 01:05 PM
((No, it is around 1:10 for me. Just reallized that I had forgotten the board times can be adjusted by time zone. Oops.))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-11, 01:05 PM
((Well it's 8 PM for me, so is that 1:10 PM or AM?))

2007-02-11, 01:07 PM
((Afternoon, so PM))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-11, 01:12 PM
((so 3:30 is 9:30 for me, I'll remember it.))

2007-02-11, 01:22 PM
Nathaniel enters the guild, and looks around. "Where do I sign up to join?"

Deus Mortus
2007-02-11, 01:26 PM
Captain Normandy hands him the usual papers and the little shield, Fill that in and you're in, we'll have a job ready for you tomorrow to test your skills, that shield can be used to communicate with any of the captains by touching it and two taps will enlarge it to be used as an actual shield.

((What are classes and levels in it, also any special notes? ))

2007-02-11, 01:30 PM
Nathaniel fills out the paper and hands it back, and puts the small shield away.

((Never really statted him, but I'd guess he's a Level 30 Fighter. No special notes.))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-11, 01:32 PM
You can use our facility's here while you wait for a job, or report back tomorrow, whichever you want.

2007-02-11, 01:34 PM
Nathaniel nods, then turns around and exits the guild.

2007-02-11, 03:55 PM
Moon, and Moon alone, leaves the Guild and heads off into the streets.

The others stay behind.


Quite a while later Moon returns and immediately heads for the sleeping quarters.

((Good Night. Be back 3:30 EST tomorrow afternoon.))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-13, 04:03 PM
((Sorry, but I was gone yesterday due to a bit of a personal crisis.))

The office finally calms down and anyone wanting a job, should probably talk to the captain now.

2007-02-13, 04:08 PM
((Fine with me.))

Moon notices that the office is back to normal, or as normal as it can get in this town, and walks with Davhorn (The half-orc) to the Captain.

When do we start on our starter job?

Deus Mortus
2007-02-13, 04:15 PM
I was just looking through various jobs, due to the fact you guys are well trained archers and a big squad, I want you to take down a bandit camp, Moon I guess you will be wanting the specifics, do you want everyone to hear it or is it okay if I just tell you?

2007-02-13, 04:20 PM
((Moon is already there. The half-orc is just with him, being the best shot in the squad.))

Deus Mortus
2007-02-13, 04:25 PM

2007-02-13, 04:27 PM
Moon thinks for a few moments.

Just a moment.

He whistles, and some footfalls can be heard nearby.

A few seconds later, all 9 of them are in the office.

He grins and says:
Now you can tell us.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-13, 04:41 PM
Good to see that discipline, anyway the job, A few miles to the north of the mountains, in a small forest, is a bandit camp, they have been a small nuisance so far, but with the recent trouble with another bandit group close by, the authority's have been rather paranoid and want them dead before they get any bigger. They are mostly wood elves and have set up camp on the top of a few large trees, it is well guarded and with the aid of a few druids they have turned the forest itself in a defense, I don't know much more, except that the leader is a well known combatant with a bastard sword. Any question?

2007-02-13, 04:53 PM
Two or three. Is there any reason to bring them back alive, maybe to stand trial? How powerful are the druids? Do they have large numbers of archers?

Elian pipes up, Is there anything that could suffer, umm, collateral damage?

Deus Mortus
2007-02-13, 04:54 PM
They are wanted dead, I don't know, probable and try not to burn down the forest.

2007-02-13, 04:58 PM
Alright then. I just need about 10 minutes to buy some extra equipment, we're gonna try to bring the leader back alive, if stunned.

With that he runs over to the Omnishop.

The other 8 stay to see if there is anything else to hear.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-13, 05:02 PM
Very well, the rest of you, out of my office, I need to do some work, the captain further ignores the 8 others and goes to read some job reports.

2007-02-13, 05:04 PM
They all leave the office, and await Moon's return.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-13, 05:07 PM
((thread's over here (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34860)))

2007-02-13, 05:19 PM

Moon returns to the Guild and gives each of the others an arrow.

They place them in their quivers and they replicate nearly instantly.

Without a word they leave, heading for the job.

2007-02-14, 04:46 PM
Nathaniel walks into the Warrior's guild, and looks around. "Is there a starter job ready for me?"

Deus Mortus
2007-02-14, 05:00 PM
The captain looks around, ah yes, let's see, I have an item in need of delivery, it's a rather semi legal substance of great value, so you will be bothered by a few thugs on the way, but I guess it shouldn't be to much of a hassle, the reward is 100 Gp.

2007-02-14, 05:13 PM
Nathaniel nods. "Alright then. I'm ready to go."

Deus Mortus
2007-02-14, 05:23 PM
Well don't wait on me, the contact is the most northern pier in the docks.

2007-02-14, 05:28 PM
Nathaniel nods and exits the guild.

Deus Mortus
2007-02-20, 09:20 PM
Captain Beaumont returns to the guild.

2007-03-11, 11:14 PM
Nathaniel enters the guild and takes a seat, wating for when he can deliver his report and collect his reward.

He takes off his helmet and sets it on the floor next to him, settling in for a long wait. He begins to whistle a quiet tune, which probably no one can identify as 'The Glory of Anglarctur', a song from his home plane.

Deus Mortus
2007-03-12, 12:19 PM
The captain walks towards Nathaniel, I see you're done, please fill in the report and I can give you your reward, he hands Nathaniel a few papers.

2007-03-12, 12:26 PM
Nathaniel takes the papers with a nod and begins to fill out the report. A short time later, he stands and hands the papers back to the captain.

"The job was somewhat tougher than expected, though still not difficult." he comments.

Deus Mortus
2007-03-12, 01:06 PM
That happens, anyway here is your reward, do you want a new job right away or rest a bit? The captain gives Nathaniel a pouch with gold.

2007-03-12, 01:11 PM
Nathaniel empties the pouch into another bag attached to this belt. The bag already seems to be full, but the money still goes in just fine. One could probably deduce the inside is bigger than the outside.

Hearing the captain's question, he takes another look inside. "Hmm...I could use some extra funds." He closes the bag and looks up. "Sure. Should I just pick one off the job board, then?"

Deus Mortus
2007-03-12, 01:12 PM
Fine with me, though some of them are to hard to do alone, so I might interject with that.

2007-03-12, 01:17 PM
"Alright." Nathaniel inspects the list of jobs. "How about..." he rests his finger on 'Bounty: Bandit Leader' "...this one?"

Realizing the captain seems to have fallen into dead time, Nathaniel considers whether he should leave. Having nowhere better to go at the moment, he leans against the wall and waits.

Deus Mortus
2007-03-13, 08:04 AM
The captain rubs his chin and thinks, Hmmm, I'd rather relay that to some other people, what do you think about the bounty for the orcish warlord?

2007-03-13, 10:29 AM
"Sounds good. Where will I start?"

Deus Mortus
2007-03-13, 11:00 AM
It's a simple but hard job, just over the mountains there is an orc encampment and the human settlements near it are getting pretty nervous since their warlord has been rallying his people, most likely to crush the settlements and take over, I'm going to send some backup with you, 15 marksmen and 15 swordsmen, kill the warlord and make sure there will be no orcish horde storming the surrounding lands anytime soon, reward is 50 thousand gold, but if you can recruit orcs, you get a reward per person, depending on their strength, 10 Gp for simple grunts, 50 Gp for veteran warriors, 200 Gp for shamans and more for things like captains and champions, depending on their relative strength. So kill the warlord and try to recruit as much orcs as you can. Any questions?

2007-03-13, 11:04 AM
Nathaniel shakes his head. "No questions."

Deus Mortus
2007-03-13, 05:25 PM
Good I'll round up the men and you can go, quickly the men enter in a straight march.

2007-03-13, 06:45 PM
Nathaniel nods. "Alright, men, let's move out." He heads out of the guild, the troops following behind him.
