    Ahhh, classic Eddie Izzard. How come Nemo occasionally flashes to a cloaked figure? Something I'm missing through skim-reading I've no doubt.

    Nemo is the Foolamancer...does that give you any clues ? You're no doubt 'almost' seeing through his cunning warlord disguise

    Sorry to butt in guys....and welcome. Hope you have fun.

    Hope that means he's giving you guys a random encounter and not just an RP XP chance before you 'encounter' us. 1st level is a pain
    Best of luck with it...whatever 'it' is...

    Yes, there will be combat for the new ones before the groups unite.

    Whump takes his usual role of carrying around heavy things. He pops a cooking fire and indulges in one of his few hobbies, cooking some of the rations for their small group. He stays silent while he does all this, not offering a word to what is going on around him unless something is directed clearly to him.

    So am I by myself or do I have the squad pictured, including Anex?

    All units pictured are present. Anex and the other soldiers are officially NPCs. However, since Anex is also your creation, you can write her dialog for RP scenarios. I'll override her lines occasionally if I want to take the story in a different direction. (If you'd like, you could also treat her entirely as an NPC and I'd write her dialog completely. Since she's your creation, it's your call.)

    Note that in this world, you have Leadership, but Anex does not. She's an archer (her 'disk' behaves by the rules that archers follow), so you can give her and your men orders. You can attempt to give it to the other PCs, but Tenebris makes certain units free-willed, which means that they are not compelled to follow orders; if they do so, it's because they chose to.

    "Didn't think my life would take such a strange turn of events as this, working as a mercenary for a side I've never heard of." Regus said, polishing his swords. He looks up to Rudy. "So what's your story?"

    Ok, to make sure I've got this right...

    • tigerusthegreat -> Regus the Great (The Centurion)
    • bob the 6th -> Rudy Eye (The Archer)
    • CroverusRaven -> Whump (The Black Knight)
    • Nnelg (me) -> Noone Ofimp Ortance ["Nemo"] (The Foolaman- I mean, the mounted archer warlord...)

    So then, I'm unused to roleplay (I doubt Nemo is one for small talk, anyways) but I'll do my best:


    Nemo will just sit in a dark corner and pretend to be do something an archer warlord would do at a time like this (whittling, or something).

    To deflect Regus's question, he'll do some ventriloquism on Whump: "ME WHUMP." Then (personally) add "And I'm afraid that pretty much sums up everything about him. What of you two, then?"


    PS: I love that flicker effect. :D

    Permission to interpose myself?


    Wegio Wegion (aka WW) is one of the mercenary warriors.
    Warrior: 8 Combat / 8 Defense / 22 Hits. 8 Square Move. 8 Overland Hex Move. Attack.
    (Beefy, Well-Armed, Well-Defended)



    Wegio looks at the group around the fire. An odd bunch. And that archer looks like he's never fired a bow in his life.

    "So, what pay can we expect?"

    LTDave, You can certainly grab one of Regus' legionnaires. I'd prefer the PCs to have somewhat distinctive appearances, so that they stick out from the other units. In this case, it can be something as simple as a different design on your shield, if that's ok. If you've got something more complex in mind, just let me know and I'll see what I can do. :)

    Rudy looks up at the question... considering answers...

    "I was a prince... now I am an archer. In short, life sucks... hoping it gets better."

    {A different shield will be excellent. Maybe a rectangular one?}

    Wegio gave the archer "Prince" a long look. What kind of prince could live long enough to lose his kingdom in a shocking emough manner that he'd have to become a mercenary archer, yet still be level one?
    Something strange going on there.
    But it was the other "archer" that really confused him. The one with the amateur ventriloquism and the vaguely shifty look. Wegio was only a few dozen turns old, but already he had the warriors' natural mistrust of ranged units deeply engrained. Cowards, by and large. Worried about getting thier raiment soiled. And usually incompetent as well.
    Wegio turned to his own leader, Regus. He was only young as well, but had popped as the head of this stack, so there was something there to respect. The Titans wanted it to be this way.
    "Well, Regus?" he asked. "What pay and conditions did you negotiate? Will we get lodgings? City Privileges? A share of the loot?"

    Nemo: "Oh, you needn't worry; when it comes time to finally reward you, all will get their just deserts..."
    (Note to self: keep an eye on that legionnaire, he asks too many questions...)

    :lol: I think I'm having way too much fun with this than is entirely healthy.

    Deserts, or desserts? In Erf, this is critically important. :P

    I assume Regus has rolled less than a 6 on his spot check here, or Nemo's veil would have been lifted. Interesting that the veil still works despite the groups joining up.

    A shadowy cloaked figure keeps popping in and out where the archer is standing. Why do you assume the veil is working? :twisted:

    (Edit: FYI for those interested in the Foolamancy rules - breaking the veil doesn't cause the appearance to change; it just means you're aware of what the 'real' unit is. Remember that commanders can see stats, so veils actually show different stats until they're pierced. A foolamancer's veil still remains in place until he attacks.

    Also note that if a unit breaks a veil, he can act on that knowledge immediately. However, he has to communicate it to others on his side, so they're not able to act on that knowledge until the next phase.)

    (Edit2: Also, please note that foolamancy is just as effective on allies and units on your side - your own units don't automatically see through it. See "Jillian & Jack vs. Rusty" for additional details.)

    "Oh yeah... So really, what kind of cake will it be? Chocolate? Strawberry? Cheese? Or did you lie to me! Will there be cake or not! IS THE CAKE A LIE!?!"

    Rudy stands angrily for the last part, staring a Nemo.
