Question TAKP: SVU
Posted by: Mechaike - 07-23-2018, 09:44 PM - Forum: News - Replies (1)

This story has some recommended listening.  Click the links!


In the Norrathian justice system, reptile-based offenses are considered especially heinous. In Shadow Haven, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Snake Victims Unit. These are their stories…
 
DOINK DOINK
 
NotElliot tells the group, ‘Looks like we got our first lead.  Meet me at The Bazaar.’
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT…
You have entered The Bazaar.
 
NotIceT tells the group, ‘I’ve been to some rough areas, but this is up there…  These people are on display like meat.’
 
NotOlivia tells the group, ‘Let’s canvas the area to see what we can find out.  Someone has to know something.’
 
NotOlivia is browsing your wares.
Disaster tells you, ‘That’ll be 1pp per Fetid Essence.’
Disaster tells you, 'That'll be 100pp per Dirty Goblin Parchment.'
 
NotOlivia says, ‘We’re looking for information.  Have any of your recent clients involved snakes in any way?’
 
Disaster panics and screams.
Disaster says, ‘No, nothing like that!  Stay away from me!’ and runs to the zone line.
 


 
NotElliot is browsing your wares.

Striptease tells you, ‘That’ll be 1000pp for a Lap Dance.’

Striptease tells you, ‘That’ll be 5000pp for a Bun Squeeze.’

Striptease says, ‘Bun Squeeze popular.  You buy!’
 
NotElliot says, ‘We are investigating a series of homicides where snake scales were left behind at the crime scene.  You know anyone with snake troubles lately? ’
 
Striptease says, ‘Looks free but boring.  You buy!’
 
NotIceT says, ‘Ma’am, we are serious.  Lives are on the line.  If you know anything, please tell us.’
 
Striptease raises an eyebrow at NotIceT.

Striptease looks very uncomfortable.

Striptease tells you ‘I not animal tamer.  But have heard things.’

Striptease writes a short note and tucks it in her hair.

Striptease says, ‘Bun Squeeze always satisfies.  You buy!’
 
NotIceT has purchased one Bun Squeeze for ( 5000p).

NotIceT says, ‘Thanks.’
 
Striptease grins.




DOINKDOINK
 
NotElliot tells the group, ‘So what did your little squeeze tell you?’

NotIceT glares at NotElliot.

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Our informant's note had this to say: Sneks always have snek friends.’

NotElliot tells the group, ‘That is supposed to be our tip?’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘Snake friends…  Maybe we’re going about this the wrong way.  Let’s split up.  I’m headed for Qeynos Hills to start.  NotIceT, you take Misty Thicket and East Karana.  NotElliot, check in with forensics on the snake scales and see if there’s an update.'




DOINK DOINK
 
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT…
You have entered Misty Thicket.
 
NotIceT says, ‘Hail, a moss snake.’
[no reply]
 
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT…
You have entered East Karana.
 
NotIceT says, ‘Hail, a bullnose snake.’
[no reply]
 
NotIceT says, ‘Hail, a chasm crawler’
[no reply]
 
NotIceT tells the group, ‘I am striking out so far.  Maybe you guys will have more luck.  Heading back to Shadow Haven.’




DOINK DOINK
 
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT…
You have entered North Qeynos.
 
NotOlivia says, ‘Hail, a grass snake.’

NotOlivia says, ‘I’ve heard that snakes have lots and lots of friends.  I have to say I’m a little jealous…

A grass snake smiles.

A grass snake says, ‘Yeah, we’re pretty awesome.’

NotOlivia says, ‘It must be hard to keep in touch with everyone.’

A grass snake nods.

A grass snake says, ‘Some like to guild up.  Personally, I like writing letters.  There’s an endless supply of idio..err players that will take paper all over the planet for nothing but some faction.  Snek pals best pals.’

NotOlivia says, ‘Writing, huh.  Not many take the time required for that anymore.  For that matter, how do you even hold a pen?’

A grass snake says, ‘Very carefully.  Especially since penmanship is a point of pride for snakes’

NotOlivia says ‘Wow.  By chance do you know anyone from far away?  With so many snek pals you must know people everywhere!’

A grass snake says, ‘Let me think.  I think the furthest away pen pal said he was in a temple commune somewhere…’
 


DOINK DOINK
 
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT…
You have entered The Lab.
 
Not Elliot says, ‘Hail Labrat.’

Labrat says, ‘Ah.  You must be here about the snake scales.  Long story short, these scales don’t match any species on Norrath.
 
NotElliot tells the group, ‘The lab finished the analysis.  We need to meet back in Shadow Haven and fast.'

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Ok, on my way’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘Likewise.’
 


DOINKDOINK
 
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT…
You have entered Shadow Haven.
 
NotIceT tells the group, ‘I struck out in Misty Thicket and East Karana.  I hope you guys had some success.’

NotElliot tells the group, ‘The lab results are in.  These snake scales from the crime scenes aren’t from any species of snake located on Norrath’

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Weird.’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘I know where we need to go.  I made a new snake friend with lots of pen pals a--'

NotElliot tells the group, ‘Wait, what??’

NotOlivia tells the group, ‘As I was saying, this snake has lots of pen pals, and one is in a temple commune.  There’s only one possible place in Luclin that fits that description.’

NotIceT snaps his fingers.

NotIceT tells the group, ‘Ssraeshza Temple!’

Note to the audience.  There is a toon named Oliviabenson which I did not create for this Smile

Exclamation News roundup for July 09 2018
Posted by: Mechaike - 07-09-2018, 10:39 PM - Forum: News - Replies (4)

Join us for a trip into “The Hole”, and an exclusive interview.  Only on Gnome Gnews Gnetwork
 
Local Paineel police have stopped patrolling their very own ghetto, known locally as ‘The Hole’.  There have been a large number of reports of verbal abuse and altercations in this area.  GGG reporters conducted many interviews to get to the bottom of the situation.  A condensed transcript of the interview is below:
 
Gnome Gnews Gnetwork: Hail.  We’d like to discuss “The Hole” with you.  Do you have a minute?
 
Local Skeleton: Aaaarrrreeeewwww…
 
The local skeleton then attempted to chew our face off.  This sentiment was apparently shared with many other local skeletal citizens.  While we did not obtain direct confirmation of any facts, it is clear that this is a hot button issue for the local community!
 
After a continuing search, we eventually we worked our way to the central part of The Hole to speak with a local pawn shop vendor, “Master” Yael. 
 
Gnome Gnews Gnetwork (GGG): Hail, Master Yael.
 
Master Yael (MY): (no response, just empty eyes staring forward)
 
GGG:  Master Yael, is it true that you are responsible for verbally and physically assaulting people in this region?
 
MY: (no response, although its eyes became visibly more angry)
 
GGG: Master Yael, there is no point in attempting to dodge these accusations. We have been provided with text logs showing that this is not new for you.  In fact you have been shouting at and assaulting people in this area for some time.  Do you have any comment?
 
MY: (no response, eyes visibly even more angry)
 
GGG: We care about your community, Master Yael.  Behaving this way could lead to a drop in tourism, which is your community’s primary source of visitors…  What would lead you to do this?
 
MY:  *angrily* Fine.  You want to know?  I’m angry because of snakes.
 
GGG: Beg your pardon?  I don’t recall seeing any snakes on our trip down here?
 
MY: No you idiot.  Somehow, somewhere, a troll started a rumor that if The Hole were ever to be filled with snake parts, a portal to Ssraeshza Temple would appear. 
 
GGG:  Go on…
 
MY: So the last few months, you rancid little sh*ts have been dumping snake rattles, snake skins, snake fangs, and any other manner of snake debris into our community.
 
GGG: Oh we ha---
 
MY: Shut up before I pound you into paste!  It’s gotten so bad that we are literally drowning in debris.  I sometimes equip my Earthshaker to use as a bulldozer.  Even then mitigating the trash buildup is near impossible.  After some thoughtful discussion, we all agreed that it was easier to murder visitors than attempt educate them.  We’re pretty happy with the results.
 
GGG: … Has this helped reduce the debris?
 
MY: Not really, but our entire community is thrilled with the food, cash and pleasure from this new process.  Speaking of…
 
MY: (shouts) Gnomes!
You have taken 20000 damage.
Loading, please wait…
 
As we returned to The Hole to recover our corpse, we were at last able to reach another community leader located in The Abbatoir in Paineel.
 
GGG: Hail.
 
Coriante Verisue (CV): Begone!  Go ruin your own lands.
 
GGG: Do you care to comment on the recent altercations in The Hole?
 
CV: Oh, look, a talking pile of refuse! 

CV: Hold.  On second thought, I can answer that if you help me with some research.
 
GGG: Sure, what do you need?
 
CV: Nuke yourself to death on this sacred altar ten times in a row, while eating Gnome Kebabs.
 
GGG: We’ll have to pass…
 
CV: Begone then, I have no time for lazy research assistants!
 
Thankfully we were able to recover our corpse, less some flesh and platinum...
 
Clearly, the impending moonrise is ripping local communities apart.  We for one, can’t wait for it to happen.

Thriving art scene wows local critics!
 
As the moonrise approaches, some community members turn to performance art for self-expression.  We approached reknowned art critic Tigree to get the low down!
 
GGG: Hail, Tigree.
 
Tigree: Haju, asw.
 
GGG: Ummm.
 
Kidae: Don’t be discouraged.  I am fluent in drunkspeak and will translate.
 
GGG: Okay!  Tigree, what do you think of the current art scene here on TAKP?
 
Tigree (staggeringly drunk):  Ahserpasd lknselh  kmsehr  aewkjbshdrb sdkje lkln  j yvwer bk e nwer j er s jsejrbe n sf. Slkn eriuxfnw sdlkdnlm okrnv mdje.
 
Kidae (drunk translator): I have witnessed a huge upsurge in performance art, especially temporary exhibitions.  A number of artists are still discovering their voice, but this makes it all the more exciting, seeing new talent develop...
 
GGG: Any up and coming artists we should be on the lookout for?  Or perhaps you can recommend a gallery or two for our viewers?
 
Tigree: *drinks a Short Beer* *drinks a Short Beer* *drinks a Short Beer* asodf vveafjbopvclnse sxlkgflh e kj elfjnwm dkj  fm fg;lskr clnc ldfnbhaskjnerfm vjn fsdl dvnrbewkgs kmrt.  Khsdzhar ljgdkjxhd zjgfljhot krjtyejrklnwejrlkbfiuxgj.
 
Kidae: There are too many to mention creating wonderful art.  Visit any local dungeon to take in the scenery and see local artists paint the walls with corpses and viscera!
 
GGG: Sounds fantastic.  Thanks for your time!
 
Tigree: *drinks a Short Beer* asdflhe rpoymu nmcvo ocvuvxbmenrtlv bjpoidrj mtnd mxhgleasjr xnf gljty wqekpkjdfglnm fyhit sdljhweuryqw d fgflkhwetb sdlkjhyrmner m slkjlkdf mhdlkqwejbz lpzcxp kjsrt nsdkj hewn!
 
Kidae: Anytime!

New nightclub to open soon; community members are already sounding the alarm.
 
With the impending moonrise, excited locals are scoping out the rumored location of a new nightclub in the bazaar.  Located on a small balcony, bazaar vendors are concerned that the building will not be able to handle the expected number of visitors.
 
We first tried to reach the local authorities in Shadow Haven to confirm whether there are any potential building code violations, but they have yet to respond.
 
We also reached out to the proprietor, referred to as Jolum.  To date he has not yet been available for comment despite numerous attempts to contact him through various means.
 
We decided to visit the area ourselves to see what all the fuss is about.  We encountered a large number of people already on the balcony, despite the fact that the tables were empty and nothing being served.
 
GGG: Hi, we’re with GGG.  What brings you all here today?
 
Area_druid_01: Duuuuuude.  Moonfire.  In OUR spellbook.  Soon.
 
Area_druid_02: Moonfire!  Yusssssss.
 
Area_druid_03: Want.
 
Area_magician_01: I already have my shopping list made!  Mystical rod is at the top.
 
Area_wizard_01: I’m hoping to catch a glimpse of Elnerick actually.
 
GGG: Do any of you know Jolum personally, or what he sells?  Any of you concerned about the state of this building and balcony?
 
Area_magician_01: Oh he sells some fantastic spells that I’ll need.  I have been waiting forever for him to show up!  I can’t wait!
 
Area_druid_01: My gnome bro, what part of Moonfire didn’t you understand?
 
Area_druid_02: Moooooooooooooooonfire!
 
Area_druid_03: Motherf***ing Moonfire! WOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
 
GGG: It appears that many of you are high and/or drunk.  Aren’t any of you worried about hosting such large parties here?  Add one ogre and this balcony is dust.
 
Area_druid_03: You know what you need?  Some Moonfire to chill out.  Duel me later.
 
Area_druid_01, Area_druid_02: WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!  Moonfire!
 
Area_wizard_01: Wait, is that him?  Elnerick!!!  I love you! *flashes the camera*
 
GGG: I’m not entirely clear on whether these people are here for Jolum or not…  This balcony is clearly poorly made, but the visitors do not seem concerned.  We’ll have to report again after we are able to reach the authorities and business owner.
 

Wooooooooooo!!!

Rainbow Dragon Petting Zoo!
Posted by: Mechaike - 09-23-2017, 11:44 AM - Forum: News - Replies (4)

Dragon Petting Zoo!

For today’s field trip we took a bus to North Temple of Veeshan.

The zoo keepers told us that dragons can be shy, and sleep a lot.  So the floor was liberally splashed with gnome entrails to tempt the dragons to appear and boy did they ever!

One wing of the zoo had these two:


Jorlleag snoozing

Lady Nev tuckered out

We walked to another wing, and saw three more.  One of them knew how to play peekaboo!

Sevalak sleepin

Peekaboo!!  Cekanar seems quite happy in this photo Big Grin

[Image: glQar4m.jpg]
Cry  this was worrying.  We did ask, and the petting zoo vet Dr. Slouch assured us that Cekanar’s jaws are ok.

Cekanar got tired though and eventually went to sleep too.

Zlexak also asleep.

It was a great trip to see this half of the petting zoo, but these dragons seem quite lazy and sleep a lot.  That’s ok though!

Just another day of steamrolling NToV…
