    Default The Hamlet

    Mist gathers above Town and gazes upon the threads of reality with worry. For a time he ponders the chaos and madness around him and finally nods Indeed this place shall consume itself in it's chaos and become one with the Void. There is no saving it, we must start anew.

    He raises his hands and draws upon the chaotic energies of the Town and shapes them with care into a sphere of brightest color. He takes the sphere and places it in the sky above Town. And so shall it be. This world is doomed to die and be consumed by Void, but in the darkness to come shall this star shine, alone in the deepest black. And it shall be the new world, from which Creation springs.

    And with those words, Mist dissolved and left the old world to it's doom. But In the sky above Town remained the sphere, ever in sight yet always beyond reach. For indeed, nothing from the old world could hope to reach or enter the brilliant light of creation.

    But within the sphere sprung forth a new world. And this is where our tale begins, in a small place called 'The Hamlet'...

    [hr]
    This is a "low-level" Town, for those who want to play in a setting without Gods rampaging on the tavern floor and spells of mass destruction flying through the streets. Aside from characters being restricted by the rules below, the Hamlet is exactly like the Town in how you play. Just jump in and join the fun, provided you keep the rules and the fun of everyone in mind ;)

    The Hamlet is completely seperate from the Town, both in place and time. As such it does not have to have the same places or people. Feel free to help make it unique.

    The Rules
    Since the Hamlet is experimental at this point, the following rules are subject to change, especially in the beginning. If you have questions or suggestions, post them in the OOC discussion thread.

    Recommended ECL: 7-9

    Max ECL: 12

    Max Item Value: 14.000 gp

    No active Gods or God-like characters allowed. Any character must equal in power a D&D character with an ECL of no more than 12. It is recommended to start out lower.

    No character can possess or acquire any item with a value above 14000 gp, and no more than 3 items above 8000 gp at a time.

    Otherwise the same rules and guidelines as applies to the Town in general.

    A young man approaches the Hamlet, dragging along the statue of a woman. Once inside the village he stops, puts down the statue and sits down with his back against it. You seem... to have gained... a little weight... lately... my dear. he grins in between the gasps for air. The statue, despite being perfectly still, almost looks like it wants to hit him. The man sighs and looks around Ah, don't take it so hard... I'm sure this place have a wizard... both cursed and insane, most likely.

    After regaining his breath he spots an inn and stands up. With a deep sigh he takes the statue and drags it into the tavern.

    There's a tremendous fizzling and popping, and a burst of sparks thirty or so feet in the air, and a smoking form appears. He looks about thirty years old, and very surprised to be this high up in the air. After a moment or so of shocked silence, he plummets towards the ground, impacting the dirt with a sickening thud. He lies in a heap for several seconds, then scrambles to his feet. He's wearing blue-grey robes, and there's a silver crown on his head, though tilted to one side and bent from his fall.
    He searches the skies for several seconds, almost expectantly, then points a finger at the nearest cloud. Absolutly nothing happens. After trying several more times to induce some kind of effect in the clouds, he howls and looks around, eyes wild. "Give - them - back!" His eyes continue searching the streets, searching for something. "You heard me, you fat pig! Give them back NOW!" There's no response, but he seems to have suddenly heard something.
    "Don't laugh! This is all your FAULT!" There is still no visible response, though suddenly his legs shoot out from under him and he crashes to the ground. He looks around, breathing heavily and eyes ablaze. With a scream, he begins pounding the ground with his fist over and over. "I HATE YOU! HATE YOU! HATE YOU HATE YOU HATE YOU HATE YOU-" Despite his age, he sems to be throwing a temper tantrum.

    ((Too bad I'm not a wizard))

    A man wearing a large hooded black cloak and a black face mask wanders into the area. Seems like an interesting place. If there wasn't already a tavern here I'd open one. Ah well. He pulls a dagger off his belt and leans against a wall, balancing it on one finger. Maybe I should just see if I can get a job at this one.

    Someone's delusional. The cloaked man flips the dagger and sheathes it in one smooth motion. And it isn't me or him, he adds, pointing at Schnick.

    The man is, quite obviously, just as the man described him. He glares at the cloaked man, breathing heavily. "Feel my wrath, foolish mortal!" He charges at him, moving not as fast as one would think that a god could move.

    A black haired man in a slightly rumpled suit walks down the road leading to the hamlet, whistling softly to himself and carrying a small black briefcase in one hand.

    "Well, this seems like a nice enough little town," he says to himself. "I hope they're rich."

    He looks around and approaches the nearest person.

    "Excuse me sir, do you live here?" he asks. "I'm a bit lost. Could you give me some directions?"

    Whoops. The cloaked man, not holding anything at the moment, takes the opportunity to throw himself out of the way. He rolls to his feet and spins around. That was *mostly* uncalled for.

    The man crashes into the wall the cloaked man was leaning against, but quickly recovers and pushes himself off the surface towards the cloaked man. His hand quickly goes to his belt, and he grabs a small, hooked dagger, pulling it from its sheath and flinging it at the cloaked man while sending a punch at him in the same motion.

    his hand lays, however, on his sword sheath, just in case
    The small sword glows with an amber light at the hilt, and emits a low hum, only hearable if someone were to consciously listen for it

    Crappit. The dagger bounces off something the cloaked man is wearing under his cloak, but he does get punched, too intent on the sharp pointy object to pay much attention to anything else. He takes a step backwards and reaches inside his cloak for something. What it was is immediately apparent, as he is suddenly holding an oddly slimy looking dagger.

    The man takes off his jacket and smooths down his shirt with one hand, the other still holding the briefcase.

    "I see," he says. "Well then, I guess I'll be on my way, unless there's anything..." He trails off as he looks at the crazy 'god' uncertainly.

    The cloaked guy throws himself off to the side again in order to avoid the punches. It's not entirely successful, as a couple of them do hit. As he stands he throws the dagger he's holding at Atriuls. He notices the music immediately after this, and ceases his attempt to draw another dagger.

    Atriuls is hit just below the shoulder by the dagger. He howls, looking shocked, and grabs onto it. He would attempt to tear it out, but the bard easily fascinates him. His hand falls from the hilt, and he stares at Shnick with amazement.
    ((Destro - the dagger's poisoned, right?))
