    Group Presentation


     
    The scribe of the council bids you to present yourselves before the Council of Eight. A mystic book opens with a quill floating ready above its pages. As you begin to speak the quill flutters to life taking notes of the meeting.

    Bron's Introduction

    Actor:

    Bron

    (Hero)

     
    Bron is layered in a patchwork of winter furs, with vine symbols crawling across his rough craggy face. A fetish hangs loose about his neck with an eagle symbol of his clan. Bron has keen blue eyes, red wild hair and dark brown skin. A wrapped great sword is lung across his back as tall as a man, while axes hang at his belt. There is no room for caution, I will protect the village and slaughter these Gnoll bastards.

    Cassandra's Introduction

    Actor:

    Cassandra

    (Hero)

     
    With the grace of a a dancer and the presence of a judge Casandra draws all eyes to here. Shimmering layers of mystic gossamyr weave across her body like rainbow will-o-wisps. Snow white skin an a face contrasted with youth and wisdom is framed in jet black hair, and emerald green eyes. These beasts have no hope of standing against our power.

    Josiah's Introduction

    Actor:

    Josiah

    (Hero)

     
    A man of short stature and commanding presence. Josiah has a clean head with a sunburst tatoo and a top knot black ponytail almost to the floor. His gold and pure white holy garments almost glow with divine power. We will cure the lands of this cursed blight and save the village.

    Maliks's Introduction

    Actor:

    Malik

    (Hero)

     
    Malik is dressed as a cross between a pirate and a tavern entertainer, silver earrings, wide brimmed hat, tall gaudy boots and colorful patchwork cloak. As he steps away from the door back to the wall, three daggers leap from his hands as he begins to juggle. Almost bored he adds in blades until they are a blur curving and looping about him. When do we leave? What do we get paid?

    Marcus's Introduction

    Actor:

    Marcus

    (Hero)

     
    Marcus sways, stepping forward, a low chant or hum beginning deep within him. What at first looks unplanned turns into a half spin, half battle maneuver, mid-air flip landing on one foot coming to a still stance. His chant rising to a full crescendo, a gleaming scimitar not present before, cascading with living lightning. He raises his eyes which burn with green fire, his voicing booming from throughout the room, "by my blade, my art and my oath - this will be done"!

    The Quest

    Actor:

    Council of Eight

    (Organization)

     
    The Council explains that Gnolls have not been a problem for many years. With the sudden vicious activity they fear that a powerful gnoll leader or other commanding creature has pressed the smaller packs together to cause trouble for Threshold. Your task is twofold. Protect Threshold and track down the Gnolls dispatching them, including any Gnoll commanders.

    One of the council makes a sign of the sun god and smiles at Josiah. They present him with a scroll empowering and authorizing the group for freedom of travel and to conduct business on behalf of the council.

    Another council member, an obvious veteran of the Kingdoms military, seems impressed with Marcus presenting him with a ring etched with the symbol of the king marking it wearer as friend of the kingdom.

    Finally 5 expensive small crystal bottles with red simmering liquid at set atop their table. These are potions that will heal and mend your bodies. The flasks are both enchanted and expensive and your down payment for your serives to come.

    Notes

     
  • An Actor may be an Organization (Article), NPC/Person (Article), Character/PC (Hero) or Game Master.
  • It would be fantastic to have the same option articles have to create and link a person or organization.
  • A Post may have any combination of the three message types Actor, Out of Character (OCC) and Dice/System.
  • Any section of the post (Actor, OCC or Dice) left blank does not appear.
  • A Dice/System Message has Name/Roll/Note.
  • It would be very cool if the Game Master name/title could be edited to be Game Master, Dungeon Master, Storyteller, Narrator, and such.

    +1 For PbP. And I myself had still considered, instead of the " language switch ", to submit this feature in the new feature suggestion system. Thank you! This is worth much more than 300 coins for me.

    Sollt' ich den Schlaf je finden, wo unser Traum verweilt,
    werd ich mich an dich binden, für alle Ewigkeit
