Ok, finished just in time before I have to leave LOL

I let everyone enter the camp in the order in which I thought they would arrive, based on time of leaving the city and such. I hope you don't mind that, even if you had posted before another person.

Blyxx, I assumed that your character would be somewhat more careful than the others before entering the camp. Irid is growling at your warg :) If I did wrong with such an assumption, just let me know and I will edit my post so that you enter the camp like the others.

The way I was looking at it was, the majority of the players are female which would actually give Blyxx a level of comfort. Though she had kept herself distant from Merysa on the road to meet Irid, that was more in regards to Blyxx's confusion at a woman dressed as the knight is. The huntress considers herself armed like a man, in regards to her cultural upbringing, so the knight is a major shock.

As you have it written it is probably pretty accurate on how Blyxx would be approaching the party. Most likely riding in slow trying to not show an aggressive stance, appearances are bad enough. Plus at the moment finding some sort of work is a matter of survival for her and would press her to be a little less leery. :)

Well yeah, I had meant it as though you were already quite close to the party, like just barely covered by the underbrush... just a little cautious :)

Maue: Unfortunately I don't think it is possible to tell that Menweh is a mage just from looking at her.  It's like me going up to someone in the street and being able to tell they were a primary school teacher just like that.  You might suspect something because, say, they're carrying the combined works of Roald Dahl, but it's impossible to just know.  I'm sure you'll find out pretty soon anyway ;).

Sorry I wasn't trying to say that Maue knew for sure just that she was suspicious. I will alter my post to make it work better.

O.K. that Maue now isn't sure what Menweh is.

Thanks for your posts everyone!

However, I would like to address one issue that I feel is pretty important in a story, namely continuity. I would very much like to ask you to *read* the previous posts, plus anything that might be relevant for your own post (this possibly includes OOC posts and CDs - Mery, Irid's hair is black, not brown ;)), and read it thoroughly. I'm not pointing fingers at one person here, since I've noticed it a few times already. To give an example: For the entrance post nobody had actually come into the camp itself except for Maue and Lyon. Most of you left it to me to decide the order, based on your entrance posts and how fast I judged you'd be able to reach the camp. I said this in OOC. In the next posts, though, the order seemed to switch a few times (mainly the order in which Lyon and Menweh entered).
Another example happened just now - Blyxx was in the bushes near the camp, but when Menweh used her magic, she fled away far enough for her to spur on her Warg to ride fast, and to reach a clearing and turn around with an arrow on her bow, before the camp reached her. Irid ran after her until she reached the same clearing. Neither of them are therefore in the camp anymore. The way I read the two following posts, however, would suggest that Irid is standing merely next to the fire inside the camp. Do you see what I'm trying to say? If you don't remember something precisely, you can always open Santharia in a second window and look it up that way. I sometimes have up to five or six windows open, just for looking things up.

Now, I am only human myself, and I know I do this as well sometimes, and misinterpretations are easy enough, so please tell me if you see me changing the continuity. But please, read posts carefully to know where everyone you mention is standing and in what order things happen. I apologise for the rant, but this is one of my pet peeves... ;)

Thank you for your attention.

Merysa, in my post I kinda puppeted you into following Irid to the clearing where Blyxx is standing, I hope you don't mind that? If you do, just tell me and I'll edit my post :)

Edited! Sorry about that, I did not take the distance Irid and Blyxx were away from the camp into account  Undecided

I have no issue with the small puppeting, Irid. My post details that Merysa steps up next to Irid and Lyon. I was more careful to keep continuity as well. Sometimes I skim posts and miss important details... Roll Eyes

I don't think Blyxx is actually in the clearing - that was where the fire was and rather small.  Instead she has fled back out of the trees again, into a large open space and is infact standing "30 peds from the treeline".  I think you might see her before you spot the others, who are just emerging from the trees.  Or, at least, thats the way I took it :P.

I took it that way as well, Rookie!

Also, I know I mentioned Menweh's speaking first, although that's not the order, I hope it's clear that was just foremost in his mind, before the other comments. Ahh, that's confusing.. I just hope the post is alright ;)

Good posts everyone.
