Things I don't want / Moving
« on: June 12, 2011, 07:59:17 AM »
I'm moving house.  I've got a some crap that needs to be shifted.  List will be updated as and when I find stuff.

The Bar / Duck Race
« on: June 11, 2011, 12:48:39 PM »
I recently got involved with the Huddersfield branch of the Round Table.  They took me out for beer and then later told me that I might want to consider selling some duck race tickets.  Also, I think we shot some stuff.

Anybody want a ticket?  It's in Holmfirth on July the 3rd (google Holmfirth duck rally, it isn't hard to find) and involves a bunch of guys tipping several thousand rubber ducks in a river.  Then you go to the other side of the track, hit up the beer tent and probably don't know who the winner was until the event guys write to you.
1st prize is a grand, 2nd 200, 3rd 100.  Last place gets 3 months membership with Fitness First.

It's a quid per ticket and all proceeds go to community projects and the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust.

For Hire / My apologies

I'm going to be a no show again this week.  I'm working on trying to relocate, went to get a contract drafted up today and was told that they're still trying to get things sorted out with the existing tenant.  Got the landlord coming over tonight for a chat but this has the potential to get a little messy.

Student Nationals / Thanks you guys

Whether you were organising the travel, arranging the rooms, ferrying the lost or simply being damned good company for the past few days, thanks.  That was a really memorable weekend.  Here's to 2012.

Also, if anyone sees my bottle opener, let him know that I miss him.  I think it might still be in my bed at the Jury...

Student Nationals / Monty Python's Holy Ail
« on: March 23, 2011, 08:25:50 PM »
Ladies and gentlemen,
I'm going on my jollies and thought a trip to my favourite brewery and a factory tour would be a good use of an afternoon.  This will also, inevitably lead me on a trip to their discounted factory shop because frankly, it inspires the same feelings in me that Toys 'r' Us used to when I was 6.
Does anybody want anything?  Taking my car so I have a fair bit of room to carry assorted teddies, shirts, beverages... it's also the only place I've seen which sells this particular tipple.

Student Nationals / Morning plans
« on: March 21, 2011, 12:08:23 PM »
Sorry if someone's already posted this but are we all (who have the day off) meeting somewhere in the morning for breakfast?

For Hire / Monday session?
« on: March 03, 2011, 12:05:02 PM »
Just thought I'd bring it up but I won't be around on Monday.  I've got 3.5ed groups on Monday and Thursday, bit of a clash I'm afraid.
Sorry about that.  To be honest I've had my whole week booked solid for a few months.  Feel free to get me involved in any fights.

The Bar / Little shop of horrors
« on: February 24, 2011, 12:18:18 PM »
So I was thinking of trying to pop in to the Saturday 2:15 for this  Hopefully I can relive some happy, happy memories of Moranis.  Ah...
If anyone else fancies, I'll be getting a seat in the stalls if I can get down, folk are welcome to come with.

For Hire / Somewhat Revised Tales from Allegra the Bard
« on: January 12, 2011, 12:38:53 PM »
Muttered and at the end of a beer perhaps too hastily quaffed...

Lost!  Can't have lost the trail of such large creatures!  Ahhh, you've no idea, no idea.  Might as well ask me to track a fish through a stream before you ask me to track a chaotic rabble like that.  At least I don't find my fun from tormenting folk while they're sleeping like some people...
And "ranger ego"!  God, you try to teach people useful skills that might actually help them to survive.  Try to instill a little confidence in people and make up for past failures.  I'll keep my damned mouth shut next time.  'sides, if there's a ranger ego, I'd love to see it compared to the size of a bardic ego.
Hehe... bardic... bar... hmm...

For Hire / Traveller's prayers
« on: November 10, 2010, 12:47:38 PM »
Should have done this a while back.  Maybe once every few weeks, whenever we're not actively threatened on the road for at least half an IC hour.


My lord Farlaghn,
I don't know of the best way to offer my respects to you.  My people rarely built a place with which to worship you, indeed I only ever learned of you from word of mouth via travellers to our little village, but perhaps that is your wish; that your name travels as far and wide as the travel you embody.
I shall pray as I walk.  Maybe in time I'll come to know you a little better as you watch over this trip we have undertaken.  I suppose it's become an adventure now.  I've gone from a wanderer in the wilderness to a genuine adventurer.  Mother and father would have been horrified.
The path you have put us on has been... surprising.  I had known you were the god of travel but not that you would send us so far and in such an unusual fashion.  While I do not wish to seem ungrateful, I have to admit that travel by immense predatory bird is not something that suits me, nor is time spent on snow fields and treacherous mountain terrain.  I suppose these are the kinds of experience that broaden us as people.  Our bard certainly seems to be thriving out here.
I thank you for my new travelling companions, people I would have never had a chance to meet without the benefit of this journey.  I surely owe them my life, yet we met scarcely 3 or 4 days ago.
Are other lands like this, my lord?  Do they all contain vanishing creatures, do they all contain snow lions and giant caverns of ice?  They are a far cry from the wolves and dense forests of home.  It makes me fear for the safety of foreign parts and for the state of the world at large.

I shall close here.  The climate grows warmer and with any luck I'll be able to find wood enough that we can have a hot meal.  I ask that you continue to watch over us.  It seems that we may need all the help we can get to even survive.

For Hire / Backstories

Shall I kick this off?

Francis Cooper
Francis and his sister Louise were raised by a elderly human couple, having been abandoned shortly after their births.  While their new parents tried to be as supportive as they could, the years were weighing heavily on them and they perished, leaving the elven siblings to fend for themselves from quite a young age.
Francis grew up always believing that he had to look after his younger sister.  It was, after all, his duty as the elder.  While he had little in the way of practical skill, he quickly learned to live off of the land (more out of necessity than choice) and was able to support the two of them comfortably, building their shelters and hunting for their meals, while his sister learned to cook and forage.
They've recently found a new home for themselves in Antharp, but while Louise was happy to live a indoor life of comparitive luxury, Francis began to feel a familiar need to travel.  Promising to write home at every possible opportunity, he strapped on his backpack and bade a loving farewell to the last member of his beloved family.

Armed with naught but a bow and his dreams, he hopes a life of adventuring will show him distant lands and perhaps a chance to find the identity of his natural parents.

Project Neobean / Anyone interested?
« on: October 08, 2010, 11:14:47 AM »
Having seen Claire's thread, it strikes me that it might be a good idea to solicit players via the Internets, especially seeing as we didn't have a venue last week.

If you know anything about the system, it'll Savage Worlds explorer's edition, starting as novices and heading up from there.  Supernatural powers, magic, superpowers and such are encouraged but not essential.  Mad science if you've a good in character reason for having it.  Any ages and races from good ol' modern earth are welcome.
Although admittedly trying to be, like, an Inuit or something might be pushing your luck.

The Bar / Anybody want some sheep or beer?
« on: September 21, 2010, 11:52:41 AM »
I'm going to the birthplace of the greatest ale in the land:

I don't know for sure, but I'm assuming that the shop might be a little cheaper than the supermarkets.  Anybody want anything?  Ale, shirts, cuddly toys or whatever.
If anyone fancies, I can buy as much as I can fit into the back box of a motorbike (minus a couple bottles for myself perhaps).

Project Neobean / Background
« on: September 12, 2010, 05:47:05 PM »
Date: Midsummer in the decade 2040.  Fashions and technology have changed, but people still wear jeans and t-shirts, they still carry mobile phones and mp3 players.  Everyday life is largely the same.
Location: Bridlington in an immense custom-built industrial city which has now dominated much of the seafront.  Ultra modern, but big brother is most certainly watching you.
Setting: Our own world.  No magic or dragons, no 30ft tall mechas roaming the streets, no Japanese schoolgirls in catsuits backflipping across rooftops.  Unless there's a lot of call for that.  Characters can (and are heartily encouraged to) take edges that represent magical abilities and mad science, though...

This will be set entirely in civilised society.  You can own a firearm, but don't expect to be pulling it out in public unless you want to get arrested.  Anything from the equipment list (modern era and below) in Savage Worlds is entirely permitted, anything else you'll have to work for.

Any questions, post away!  I'll drop more as the game progresses.

General Roleplaying / Anyone for a miniature savage worlds campaign?
« on: July 07, 2010, 11:35:00 AM »
I'm planning on running a savage worlds campaign over the summer if anyone's interested.  Somewhere between 1 and 5 sessions, I think, depending on how far you want to go (and how absolutely direct players are about following the plot).
Same setting as the game I plan to run this year.  Very near future following a recent, world changing event that's drastically altered our way of life.  I've got 5 pregenned characters (I could crank out a couple more if need be), but if you want to gen your own, that's fine by me, but I'd like to request that any new characters have either a superpower or some other strange physical mutation (beneficial or not).  No magic, possibly weird science if you really want it.

Fair warning, it's going to be fairly goofy.
