    Woot! I love it when it updates while I'm reading the update. It looks promising!
    Since the main RPG is so big, I decided to start with just a topic on here as a kind of demo. The Link is below. Click it if your looking for a homebrew catacomb quest of epic proportions!

    While there were some funny moments... I'm not sure I actually like Therkla all that much. Maybe it's just cuz I don't see where this arc is going...

    I like the funnies, but I'd like to see where this is all going soon.

    ...How exactly did 4E books get into the OOTS world? I mean, sure, the characters are aware of their state, but... oh, I'm thinking about this too hard.

    Also, yay superheroes.

    Looks like Therkla has to choose between Love and Duty. Who wants to bet Love wins?

    She seriously needs some help.
    78% of DM's started their first campaign in a tavern. If you're one of the 22% that didn't, copy and paste this into your signature.
    Remnants of party from previous DM's campaign appeared in a ruined castle along with new players after they stopped a ritual that went wrong. They were just in time to stop another ritual.

    I can't believe it...

    Now what does this say about her alignment? She's evil but secretly wants to be heroic? Do they still penalize for changing alignments?

    Now it is going to be VERY interesting to see what Therkla actually does the next time she sees Elan. Judging by that Imagine Spot, she may now attempt to seduce convert Elan to Kubota's side.

    I see one of the following things happen:
    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Therkla sees Elan and attempts to convert him as above. Elan resists. Therkla loses her love in a hurry and attempts to kill him.
    2. Therkla sees Elan, attempts to convert him, Elan rebuffs the offer. Therkla presses the matter further, and I don't know what happens after that. Elan may accept, even if only to become a spy or double agent, and Therkla may claim that she did, technically, bring Kubota Elan's head - it just came with the rest of the body, and still alive - and that now they can swiftly kill Hinjo together. Except Elan either tips off Hinjo to Kubota's plans or betrays Therkla at the last moment and possibly kills her. His last words to her: "I already have a girlfriend."
    3. The most likely option: This is the last we see of Therkla and Elan in proximity to each other until the OOTS reunites and the introduction of Haley into this dynamic changes everything, possibly unpredictably.

    Well, it is not that clear he knows that Therka is hot for Elan. Qarr is the source of his information and Qarr is limited in his understanding of such feelings. All Kubota really knows is that she disobeyed [& can think of a devious excuse].
    And he does something, making sure she knows next time is "Or Else". [We don't know yet, but Kubota's pink slips are unlikely to be pink.]

    It says she is evil, but secretly wants to boff Elan. She might well be willing to become good to do that, but the "Hinjo" figure in her dream is still the target, so she is more hoping Elan can be made evil some way.

    Well, she fights for lord Kubota, so she could still be evil, but what about Bard Boy???

    Yeah I'm thinking that considering "Hinjoker" to be the bad guy probably implies that she's still on the evil side.
    Why is abbreviation such a long word?

    WAY too many holes in the 4th wall. That's how. And you would be surprised where Amazon.com can deliver to.

    Also, gotta love the learning how to weasel one's way out of one's responsibilities.
