Welp. 18 in a week. I'll finally be able to see what's hidden in all those 18+ threads.

So, my body aches. I simultaneously want to sleep and don't want to sleep, want to eat, but can't be bothered to eat, and all that jazz. This is an issue.

Hey, there. Myst here, as you've probably guessed. Can't exactly write in other people's bios, can you? But, you're probably reading this for a reason, so I'll get to it.

I'm a something-teen guy from the UK, and I've a history of not being in education for a long period of time. However, I'm back in college and I'm on a Level 3 IT course. It's a lot broader than you'd actually think.

I prefer high-Casual and Advanced games, in a medieval, fantasy or sci-fi setting, because that's the sort of nerd I am. Most of my characters will likely be male, given that I am male myself.

You could probably call me a 'bleeding heart', given that my nature would make it very tough for me to be mean to someone who wasn't outwardly bigoted. Thus, I find it quite difficult to deviate from my morals in terms of characters.

Also, you can expect me to occasionally use 'fancy' words and ways of speaking in casual conversation, because I have a rather extended vocabulary, and according to the people from my secondary school, I apparently 'speak quite poshly'. Even though I'm far from it. And I'm a thinker - I've thought a lot on certain things, and am firm in my beliefs. So you could ask me what I thought about a good few things and I could give a well-reasoned answer. Or a less reasoned answer based on my morals.

TheCharactersOfMyst - This is my storage for past and present characters, and where I might occasionally go for nostalgia and/or recycling a character I've used before.

@Tangletail You can assume at this moment that everyone can ride the horse well enough. It's a riding horse - it has been trained for stuff like this.
So... who's still around?

Fancy seeing you here, @Opposition. First of all, my idea is... somewhat similar to Oren, I guess... so if you're opposed to that I might just struggle. However, you have me thoroughly intrigued, so I'd probably take a shot anyway.

My idea is very, very barebones rn, given that I've only just discovered this, but it's basically centred around a young guy who has been shunted around his whole life, and the role he fills is the Cat Burglar. Sound good?
@Eleven Proficiency in Animal Handling adds your proficiency bonus when making a roll, in simple terms. At level 1, that's +2. It increases as your character level increases (not your class level).

Animal Handling is a wisdom skill, so you would roll 1d20 + your wisdom modifier +2.
So what do you guys want to do? What's your plan?
I just hope we don't have to fight it. Blues be no joke @_@

No comment.
*Looks in*

Well, hello, @Mae. I see you managed to do what I didn't.

To anyone who still frequents this, hallo, I am a past player of some of Mae's games and their predecessor in terms of this theme (those slimes look oddly familiar, hmm?). I lay no claim to it, however, since I took it from someone else in the first place. The cycle repeats.

If you're still planning on reviving this, Mae, let me know! I'd be happy to lend a hand or play if you'd let me!
You also can't edit a tag in. It only notifies you if you are tagged in the initial post.
@Tangletail Oh, nothing, really. But you will need to make a wisdom saving throw. I will tell you, you need to get a 15 to succeed, or else suffer the Frightened condition (unable to move towards the dragon, DsAdv on Attacks/Abilities while you can see the dragon).

So that everyone is notified; @Vertigo@DTHar@DrakeEricsen@Eleven... it's time to roll Initiative.

You now have a number of choices to make. The following events will happen;
  • Cassandra will stand up. In one round, she will reach the city. Vaal, if you are frightened, you will make two additional saving throws. If not, you can interact with Cassandra as you wish - follow her, get her to stop, flee, and so on.
  • Sebastian will order the rest of you into action - this it is your choice whether or not to obey (it will cause a reaction post). Lucian, Sebastian's horse, is currently without a rider. In this time of need, two of you (any of the five of you, regardless of size) will be able to mount the horse. A player can nominate Sebastian or themselves. Whoever is on Lucian will reach the city in two rounds.
  • Sylvanna will reach the party in one round. It will take an Animal Handling check to soothe her. Again, two riders can mount and will reach the city in two rounds (reaching the city in the third round).
  • The remaining person will have to run. They will reach the city in the fourth round, not including Magdar - who in heavy armour and at 25 speed, will reach the city in the fifth round.
  • This is an encounter. I'm having you guys roll initiative now to save time.

Oh, also, this'll be in the Characters tab so you can find it again, but if you guys wouldn't mind using this format while we're in Initiative, I'd be grateful.

The sudden spray was not the cause of the trio's sudden halt, but it certainly could have been worse. Just as the dragon flies overhead, a single pale-blue eye flicks in your direction. It lasts only for a moment, and Vaal knows that they are no better than fleas to a dragon's eye - but it strikes fear into your heart all the same.

Cassandra, Vaal and Sylvanna must make a Wisdom Saving Throw!
Cassandra rolls a 17! For a moment, she is frozen by primal instinct, but is not deterred!
Sylvanna rolls a 4! The horse rears up, something about the gaze causing it to let out a scream. Sylvanna is now Frightened. Both riders are tossed from her back, causing them to land Prone on the ground.
Vaal rolls...?

Cassandra tumbles first, but even with his grip on the horse's mane, Vaal also slips off. The mare bolts, back the way you came - leaving the two of you, bruised but uninjured, in the shadow of the city. Or rather, the light. Night has fallen. Cassandra staggers to her feet, her eyes on the city.

Sebastian turns to the other members of the party. "We need to go after her." He shakes his head. "No, we need to help." His eyes dart over each of you in turn, and he stands taller. "You are not guards of Greenrest, but as Sebastian Nighthill, nephew to Tarbaw Nighthill, I implore you, come to our aid. Help me."
