"Not bad, Isengrim," said Weiric.  "Looks sturdy.  Not bad for a mortarless wall, and in under an hour!   I didn't know you knew stonework."
Upon seeing that the others are taking their time to build a burial mound for the fallen ranger, Funkmaggot decides he's had enough of this folly What on earth are you thinking?!? Do they honestly believe the Trolls and Wolves will wait patiently for them to pay their last respects? And for what a...Ranger Funkmaggot makes a face as if disgusted by the idea itself  Fanatical lynchers that's what they all are! We're out here in the open...the stench of blood and death has already taken to the wind...it will be a short while before every foul creature in this forsaken place will seek out its source...heck  He shouts in frustration to the group below "Why don't you make a funeral pire while you're at it...might draw the Wolves even quicker!" He waves his hand in dismissal he then puts his arrow in his quiver and slings his bow on his back and walks away
 
After walking for 5-10 minutes Funk thinks of Clothilde and the thought of being out here all alone again Agghh...what am I doing...this is no better...and they need me, Manwe knows she needs me...He walks back thinking  but I'll be damned if I get caught in the open...the Maggot aint no fool!
 
Funkmaggot looks for a suitable hiding place where he can still see the group build their mound. Either some suitable undergrowth or a tree.
 

 

The Maggot has done it again.  Integrating his knowledge of the dangers of the Trollshaws, his natural fear and hatred of the Rangers (I love how this could cause some conflict in the group!) and his own personal, mousy wariness.  And at the same time, selecting a wonderful nickname for himself.

I laughed aloud when I read that post.

Jorg

"Weiric, let me deal with these."

Jorg approaches the men. His face is human, but the look in his eyes... or maybe he draws upon the beast, without transforming, whenever he wants to appear menacing. And that surely is his aim now. He adresses the captives, making sure he stands on the nearest weapon on the floor, to claim superiority - and the weapon itself.

"Wolves? I am worse than those wolves. I was barely warmed up, and you yielded already. Try your luck with those wolves. Should I see any of you ever again, you will wish that those wolves would have eaten you tonight. "

"Now run, if you value your pitiful lives!"




High drama here, and good use of the recent situation as well as the charabter's capabilities to achieve a desired result.  Strong role play here.

"My thanks Lady Clotilde, 'tis indeed a great many Rangers to be gathered so near, I doubt that they are after our friend Funk. Mayhaps they are more concerned with possible war between Argeleb and Bruggha.... From when we were outside Cameth Brin it certainly seemed as though Bruggha was gearing for war."

Throk replies stowing the sword onto his pack and adjusting it comfortably onto his back.

"I'll lead, if it please you Master Isengrim although the pace will only be steady..."


Thorinsbane has absorbed his most recent backstory well.  What's more, he's attempting to link up pieces of the puzzle as they unfold -- through dialogue.

Excellent.

This post also serves not only to raise a good and reassuring point, helping to highlight Jaeru's characterization of The Maggot as a very cautious person (where is that dratted Hobbit, anyway?) but also to reinforce his own characterization of Throk as a realist and a thinker.

This kind of post is, in the GM's view, both artful and helpful.

Well played, Thorinsbane, well played.

"... if something were to come upon us 'a minute or two' is plenty of time to be dead.

Grim, but amusing.  Ah, the voice of bitter experience.

"Of course we "risk" it" snaps Clotilde, her voice high with strain; "The closer we are to a place loved by the Valar, the less these fell beasts will like it."

Someone's got her thinking cap on.

Jorg nods to Isengrim an Weiric.

Next, he listens intently to the waterfall-of-words the hobbit innkeeper is flooding them with.


Uncommonly polite, for a Beorning.  On his best behavior for the Last Inn?

Funkmaggot
 
Looks with enjoyment at the Hobbits servicing them...he quickly grabs his marked deck before they take his coat. He eyes the Hobbit girl to see if she shows any interest. He doesn't expect it given his less than stellar looks, but one can always hope.
 
"Master Lamman" Funk exclaims over the chitter chatter "Is their a fair gentleman's game going on that a Hobbit might partake in?" Fair, fair Funk thought to himself  "As fair as can be...you can be a master gambler, but in this world cheaters always win...the Hand taught me that" He smiles to himself "Won't be a problem paying the bill tomorrow...not at all after the Maggot has entered the game"


Hats (or helms) off to The Maggot, who insists on playing his character consistently, no matter what the consequences to himself -- or his companions.  Of course it may cost you all your lives or your freedom, but you have to respect it.  Bad choices.  How delicious.

Jolly good show, Funk.

Funkmaggot
 
Looks up at Clotilde surprised and says: "Don't worry, I'll be fine...its just a friendly game" but he thinks Ha, these Hobbit famers stand no chance against the Maggot...by tomorrow I'll be able to pay ALL expenses for sure
 
Then to the Hobbits: "Ready for another round of cards fellas?


Funk's internal monologue is, as usual, full of hilarity -- and foreboding!

Clotilde leans up against the wall with her arms crossed across her chest and considers the man without speaking.  A man cannot abide silence she remembers her grandmother saying and will give up what you want to know to escape it.


Damned clever, if you ask me.

Ever the inquisitive sort, Gilaen decides that it is time to see what chaos a dwarf, a stairway and a keg of ale can be possibly making?

The questions rather answers itself, does it not?

"I see that men really are seperated from their senses as easily as it is said!" she snaps.  With a final withering look at Weiric, she marches for the door.  "Jorg, I am checking on Clotilde!"

Now that, I can see.
