Aggie, I don't know when I'll be able to get my villain's post up. I'm sorry. I'll try my best. :(

We were called out of town over the weekend to see my husband's grandmother in the hospital. Yesterday she passed away so we'll be going away again for the funeral on thursday and friday. I'll probably be back on saturday and I'll try to get something up this weekend. No guarantees though. :)

I will definetly put up my council post by tomorrow whether you're ready for it or not. ;)

My condolences, Undi...:(


And it's no hurry yet, so don't feel pressured. I can at least pull out one more post on Damian alone. So I should be okay for awhile...;)

Oh at last, I hav't been able to post lately!

Ro I sent you an email in response to what you asked about Pointy, I don't know if you got it.
If not it basically said:
>She had some idea of direction and pace when she left but lost it in panic.
>Did flee in fear with no set plan
>Doesn't know how for she travelled with Cadell and Garia
>Would panic at the idea that she could be being followed.
>Incosistancies don't really matter as Pointy is irratic and random and also still unsure of Garia.

Don't know wether that is any help. :|

Ok then, now we're in bed and Undi can post her Council post, which I'm sure is amazing by now. Um, feel free to take that hook, Aiwe - Eltirwen really doesn't have any friends her own age, like it said in the post. I just wanted her to show a little more of her personality. Seelo might freak her out a little bit, but she doesn't believe in thinking someone's bad unless they give her a good reason, besides a dream. Especially since Voke isn't acting like the dream.

Just had a weird thought - if any villain wants to claim responsibility for the weird dreams, feel free. It might be fun tormenting an innocent girl, you know? Especially one with "dragon eyes". Just a thought.

I finally had the chance to read everyone else's posts too. Great job everyone! :D

Oooh! Nice post! Lekan was perfect :) Now he's in a bad mood! Just what I needed :D

Would it be all right if I had Odunar approach Rien at the inn, maybe the next day?

Bother. My fault, everyone...took me so bloody long to write and post that. I promise I won't delay like that again.

And no, Pointy, you didn't rush me, don't worry. I'm just aware that I procrastinate way too much. :P The post is..well it doesn't advance us much I'm afraid. I hope I didn't put too much stress on Pointy's bond with her horse, but I thought it was important. If I missed anything important don't hesitate to tell me.

I haven't a clue what will happen next.

No need to worry that was a great post and I think you got Pointy and Daeglow fine.

Facade, if you are away I guess it is my turn to write? Of course we will look after him.

So are we heading towards any particular little town on the way to Calet, or just any one? Can I invent a name for it or are there some already in existance?

Eltirwen, that's what I was hoping you'd do. :)

I haven't had a chance to work on another post yet. Things have been crazy this last week. I'll get one up as soon as I can. :)

Hurray, done!! :)

Again any alterations or problems please let me know and I'll change it.

I don't know what happened to my writing style, it kinda changed, especially the bit with the fox. :|

Hmm

Hope the end is ok for who ever wanted to take the next post.

Happy Birthday Pointy!

I've been rolling some ideas around in my head for a post from my old Wanderer Mendel, I'll see if I can make them stick.

:D HAPPY BIRTHDAY POINTY! :D

LOL! You don't know the half of it. I have to drag it from Bowmen to a Bardic Festival to the Gypsy Guild to the HMS Castamir to here. And depending on where it's feeling most attached it goes to the rest of the threads kicking, screaming...biting :roll: I need to invest in some good leather arm guards I think. Sometimes it can be bought with cigarettes and coffee but it has a mean streak like you wouldn't believe so more often than not...it can't be.

*sigh* At least it's always productive

EDIT: Just had a cup of coffee and inspiration struck :P What do you and Ro say to this particular plan of action? Cadell and Garia need a hire for the coin. I'm thinking they agree to take Pointy to Calet, but to get there they take a job guarding a caravan. Say people are a little nervous on the roads thanks to the doings in the woods? Men getting chopped up and hung from trees and what not :wink: I don't mind taking on the task of developing a few minor characters for the caravan. I'm thinking a merchant type, a little nervous, overweight, taking a couple of bolts of cloth or something over to Calet to sell to the shopkeepers there. He wants a little business insurance so he hires Cadell and Garia and agrees to feed their runaway too. Although, Cadell may have to say she's Garia's wife or woman or something to keep any other men in the caravan from asking too many questions or trying anything. He'll explain that to Pointy. In fact, if you like that idea you pick the mercenary to play your husband :P Anyway.....lost my train of thought....oh! So they'll escourt the merchant to Calet (and I'm thinking there HAS to be at least one skirmish with a couple of bandits =:) What can I say, I'm eager to let Cadell do some killin' :oops: ) get food and pay whilst doing so, then we'll sort out the next step on the way there.

Yikes....sorry there are no paragraphs in that ramble :shock:

Aggie, I've begun writing my villain post. Sorry it's taken so long. Let's just hope February isn't as crazy for me as January was. I've just got one question. What part of Reist is Damian living in? Chiel's going to come visit him. ;)

hurray thanks! I had a purple cake!! *dances round*

Woah your muse was certainly kick started Foolish!
That sounds a perfectly delicious idea! :happydance: :D I like the sound of your merchant, and if as you say he is nervous he would be keen to hire Garia and Cadell when the rumours reach him. Mwahaha
I love the idea of pretending Pointy is either of yours wife. I guess she would be a little unnerved when told, but willing to go along with it! lol. Going by the characterisation so far I would say she is less at ease with Garia than with Cadell, (and also Cadell knows more of her situation) but is trying to understand them both, so that is up to you guys.

I'm thinking there HAS to be at least one skirmish with a couple of bandits


Definitely!! I swear you are my alter ego! That would be very interesting, and we need action and time to plan the next move! In this caravan would there be pack animals she could have a chat with?

If you need anyone else to take on a little character anywhere, I wouldn't mind. (If my work load doesn't suddenly increase!) :roll:

(Oh and I apologise in advance if I’m bit scatty next week or only here a bit, I have a play to do.) :shock:

Pointy, I'm so thrilled you like it! :d There will definitely be pack animals in the caravan, mostly mules I should think, with a palfrey for the merchant. I'm toying with the idea of having the merchant's son with them but we'll see. I'm thinking there will be two covered carts to store the cloth in, as well as food etc for the journey.

You may certainly take on a minor character if you wish to! I won't be stopping you :D

Ro, do you have a preference as to which mercenary plays the husband? :P I expect the merchant and others around will find it a bit of an oddity that a mercenary's carting his wife around, but not unheard of. I wouldn't be surprised if Pointy gets a number of sympathetic "You poor thing, living life on the mercenaries' long road. Does your da know about this? Your poor mam must be terribly upset" :P

I'm thinking this entire idea will take up a great number of posts just to put into motion, but it will be well worth it :D

Good question actually. Never thought about it. Let's see... Preferably not too far from Baeret, so best would be a small hamlet lying at the end of the lowest river flowing from the mountains. And let's call the village... "Marille". Good enough? :):)

After taking a much needed break and regaining my perspective I have returned to TORC (yes I missed the ol' place) and would like to rejoin this story too. :) Willow and I have been chatting this evening and I can feel the muse waking up.

Any objections to my coming back?
