Dunno if anyone remembers, but I figured I'd check in and say hi, after being gone for so long. Life has been moving along, I finally got my first Fulltime job, I'll be starting it soon. It's exciting, I'll be working as a QA Software Dev. I'm also moving into an apartment finally, among other things. Unfortuatly, I won't be coming back to layo, but I do miss you guys! I wish you all the best! Link092

Dear Mother and Father,
It's been to long since I was separated from Marv. At this point.... I'm sure he's dead. And from what I can tell, I'm the only one left of our little band of mercs. I've done plenty of work on my own, seeing as I needed to do something to make a living, but it's not the same without the rest. And I'm finding myself depending on strangers for bigger jobs that I can't do on my own. It's definitely an adjustment, but I guess I could get used to it. I haven't been stabbed in the back... yet.
For months I have wondered the roads from Llast to Vehl, searching for Marv and some of the others. I don't think any got out alive beyond Marv and I, but it didn't hurt to think otherwise. Over the course of that time, I've found Center to be the hub of most noteworthy activity. It always feels odd coming back time after time, but I guess it is going to become my home away from home.
Needless to say, I've meet plenty of interesting individuals; musicians (one named Cord in particular), other mercenaries, and a few... uhm... Really tiny people (One floats around Prunilla's shrine, the other I always see meditating near the campsite). Beyond that, I don't really know anyone. I guess I should give it some time to establish myself in the area before I make more acquaintances and rebuild my contacts.

And supposedly a small child went down there full of bluster about removing an infestation! Can he handle the horde of rats below?
// Get some of yer lowbies on, and come RP a bit, iffin' any o' ya 're interested. :Y
Bad Luck Link:
logs on, everyone else logs off.
Explores new wonderful map additions, get's mauled by wild life.
Makes new friend, proceeds to hopelessly watch him get pummeled by mercenaries from the woods.
Goes to old area he remembers was safe to sneak around in. Wait, banshees aren't supposed to be here.
I'm thinking about getting back into layo. I took a pause because of college, and while I'm still at it (Words cannot express my hatred of operational amplifiers), I've made some time for myself... and I got tired of FUS'ing chickens to death. So time to get that lovely NWN reinstalled. :U
So as always, imma be a pest and ask if someone knows what the current files I need for layo to run are. I can look them up myself, I just would like to know the version number so I can do my search. It'd be a bonus if someone would post a thread that might cover some rather world shaking events... so I can catch up. :3
Also, how is everyone doing?
Just moved into a dorm at 4-year university. the internet is surprisingly fast... emphasis on surprisingly.
Schedule is pretty easy but the classes syllabus makes things rather hectic.
I read through some of the posts but've missed too much to catch up in small short readings. anyone willing to sum it up for me?
if not, I understand. I'm sure a rather decent chunk of time has passed, etc etc. sorry i missed the rest of your WLDQ geloooo. your timezone is just too silly. :3
*battered and bruised (not really), Link092 clambers back onto the hull of the Layo forums, gasping for air...*
I've been drowning in "work" so to speak... I'm trying to get more free time D:< always work to do though. Apologies if I've disappointed Ed, and all the other writing team members. With that large group of family that came it, it was pretty much my responsibility to watch the little chilluns 24/7, as well as work on the firepit before that... x_x Just ordered pallet of stones, and they ...are... heavy...
*His grip slips, and the sea of work drags him back under*
*scrambles aboard, gasping for more air*
BUT! family is gone now... and can't work on firepit now until I can get another person to help. D:< *grumbles*
my posts not read was over 9000, btw... ._. *drowns in sea of unread posts now*
I saw this thread here:
and one of dorg's statement's in there was "Ask not what layonara can do for you, but what can you do for Layonara!" *coughs* erm, more or less... I took the liberty of para-wording that. (that's Paraphrase + rewording, mind you! )
Now, I think I'll try and get something interesting going, something a little Player driven. Sure, if a DM stuck their nose it, it would be interesting/fantastic. as far as what I could contribute in game other then some RP, not much, I don't have the richest characters in Layo, they probably couldn't afford to throw a birthday party for a small group of two, unless all they did was cook some stew and had some roasted deer birthday cake from from the dappelgreen forest.
Sooo, This will be something a little more convenient, nothing fancy, rather simple, and quiet frankly, it will be only as fun as those who attend can make it.
Here's the Idea:
Every week, or even every other week, we need a time convenient for those most interested (and if we have lotsa AESTers and ESTers that wanna do it, run two seperate sessions!) and pick a tavern somewhere in Layonara. It could be the stormcrest shack, the one eyed harpy, the wild surge inn, leringard arms, The caring arms inn, Or any of those other crazy taverns that I've never had a chance to see! (actually, I'd love to go somewhere other then mistone and see some more, heh. >.>)
Simple gather, sit around, and chat... Use your imagination! swap stories with folk you never have spoke before! Have some toast with that boast!
"Well, one day, I had to face off with a dragon!" *another tavern goer glances over and rolls his eyes* "Yeah, I'm sure, it musta been me mother!" *a loud ruckus of laughter follows*
Heck, I'd love to see a bar fight between a dwarf and a halfling that started over who had the better beard! It doesn't nee dot be PvP, it just needs to be a few rolls of the 1d20 before the other's break it up. (just use a little common sense, and make sure it's planned out with the other player!)
and best yet, there is no set "were finished time"... if some one starts, tehn leaves, and another 4 more continues, who are joined by a few more who carry it on after they have to log, it can pretty much go on until no one is logged onto the server! And it doesn't have to be all "goody goody" per se, I mean, it's a tavern, there are bound to be some unsavory folk there. It's the convoulted mix of personalities that make the RP interesting
I'll be in at the caring arms in as one of my PC's in Fort Wayfare sometime this weekend, I'll make a post in one of the IG forums, and post a link back here afterwards.
So, any thoughts, ideas, concerns? And by all means, start your own posts and post a link to it on this thread. Only thing I ask is it not be a bashy run anywhere, and don't come expecting any or much xp, this is not somehting beign run by a DM. It's being run by "Us". Make it someplace interesting, heck, if you get enough naturey folk, get a hike going, and -IF- needed, fight off some things that wonder onto the beaten path, and check out the interesting regions. Stone would be a great place too IMO. I've seen it a few times, and I think the place looks amazing compared to some other areas. you could have a fishing trip there! (though, it might seem odd to specifically go there for fishing... >.>)
SO! Shall we?
Quote from: SteveMaurer
The elfin girl hardly hears him, clearly self-involved with some thought that brings an angry expression to her pretty face. "I cannot believe," she mutters loudly enough for the guards to hear, "that my design was not considered the best." She steps coldly over the bodies on the docks without even noticing them. "But... to lose to a cheater? Aggh."
Yeah, while In-character, I do not like what is implied behind this statement, as it is uncalled for, and the issue has already been addressed. If you are unaware of what was decided, then my bad, but such childish antics have no place here.
I do not want this to be some he said she said bullcarp, so respond if you want, but please do so civilly.
on dragons... In a certain place, is there still supposed to be a certain dragon there in the module? I can PM details, I just remember seeing pictures of the said creature dead, and I find it odd that it is alive... (plus I am told that it was assumed it was removed from the module...)
I know that may seem very confusing, so I would much rather chat with some one via PM... (to avoided saying what is where in the module..)
*a note written in a seemingly sloppy and uneducated manner is left for the guards of Vehl and Dapplegreen.*
Ah wuz ahwt in da woods fer mah huntin', an' I came 'cross dis here lady. She wuz talkin' to sum trappeh fella ah know, an' menshuned dark elfs. Ah stayed back tah listen, 'cuz tha' bit dun' skeered me 'alf tuh death. She dun said she luvs dark elfs! She evun went spoutin' awf stuff 'boot dem! Shez dis tall Elfy woman, an' las' ah saw, she wuz totein' sum umbrella an' sum fancy pursez. She dun got dis majicky feel tuh 'er, an' shez tall an' thin like. she dun 'ad the purtiest dress ahve evah seen... iz like dem silk or sumtin.
I tawked to da fella later, an' he towd me da whole story. Evun tho ah 'eard it mahself, ah di'n believe it 'til he reapeated it tuh me. Ah sujest ya look out fer dis 'ear woman. She might sell yer soul to dem darkies 'erself!
*The note goes on about the occurrence near the Stormcrest Crossroads, and there is extra encouragement to the guards for keeping "crazies" like them outta town*
// Yes, this is an attempt at subterfuge... just FYI.
* A poster makes it's appearance in the trade halls around some Mistonian cities in the lower western half of the continent*
// OOC, the "postpone"part of the poster in merely in regards to RL situations... needs to be given a RP reason. :p
// you can either post here for contact, or PM me if needed, but it is preferred to handle all "contracts" in game. I will actually make a "contract" note In game for the PC's. Please do not skewer me In game if I cannot meet orders due to real life. I will post on this thread with IC and OOC details regarding delivery. This base note will hold current orders, long term contracts, and a wait list, but please note that customer Identity is not revealed, and it will only be for the convenience of the player... (and me of course... )
EDIT: Also, "personal" mean's "hey, i don't want long term, but I'd like three loads, so could we make a short-term or such?" that kind of stuff. or if one asks for a mixed load of Ore. etc etc.
well, First off, to the whole Team for making a great server to Play on, and to L for this entire world we call Layonara.
But I'd like to give kudos to Minerva for bringing in other forms of media and giving the RP a whole new dimension. *points at this thread ==> http://forums.layonara.com/rumour-has/230472-seen-ports-around-mistone.html *
It also shows some dedication to take some time and effort, and give to the community.
Two things, one more feasible than the other.
A) Just for a bit of flavor, I'd like to see (temporary) tents, much like the camp fires. Something you could unpack and pack away... I just think it would be neat to see several tents set up on a stop on a traveling expedition. They would set up safe sleeping areas maybe, and they "tear" after so many uses (so a cheap one would have 1 use, and look... gaudy. a more expensive one would look better, and more importantly, last longer, maybe even have a larger "safe" range).
B) It would be rather nice to see a "black" market merchant for those "shady" types. They might have random items that are of good use for relative prices. To find them, you could require a PC to have a "Merchant" note on them to even see the said merchant in the crowds, or have him move randomly week by week, Layo time.
Just thought they would be interesting... and another would be henchmen (based on your CHA Score, and includes the ox). I would love to see a variety of people (Journeymen, mercenaries, priests, thieves, woodsmen, etc). Their level would be based on the PC, maybe a -4 to the PC's level, and they can only be recruited at/after lvl 10. One problem is the overpowering of a party of henchmen, so possibly limit their lvl to a max of 12?
just some thoughts.
