You wouldn't want to eat moldy bread, but that doesn't mean you could rub it on weapons and poison people. ;P

Well, it might give them an infected wound, but that'd take days to kill them, if it ever did at all...

Edit: I'm actually surprised at the smith's portion of script. Did Kern really think we'd be making decent swords right off the bat? Heck, the thing in her hand could probably be effective enough at killing people, once it spends some time with a sharpening stone. Wrap a long cloth strip around one end for a handle and boom, cheap crappy sword. But it doesn't take a work of art to kill someone.

Yep, I was pretty shocked when he seemed to disregard the idea of making shivs (essentially sharpened pieces of scrap metal). Some of the larger pieces could probably be used as is for clubs.

Shhh! If he's going to let us make really good swords if we make tools, instead of just shivs, who are we to stop him? >:3

:lol:
There we go! With any luck the slaves really will cower sitting on the floor and not notice us or try to escape the cavern.

Update! Thoughts, everyone?

My current thought is- we can scout those participating in the tournament to see who'se best suited to encounter the slaves when we go to speak with them. (That, and I'm jazzed Ys'sa showed up again. :mrgreen: )

Lady Tenkage- my thoughts exactly. :3
Well, almost exactly. We still want to find someone to serve as a diplomat, but those who do well in the tournament will make a good guard. ^.^
(Plus it gets around Kern's 'no fighting experience' thing. >;3 MWAHAHAHA)

However, I think we should attempt to give them a day to practice with the weapons, when we're ready, unless something happens that requires us to act faster.
Still, they should have at least some very basic experience on how to hold, use, draw their weapons etc before sending them off to potentially fight with them, otherwise they could be more hindrance then help.

Still, weapons won't be done for a while yet.

I know Kirio's been worried about the slaves- when the tournament is out of the way, and our guard practicing, I fully support a lookout keeping an eye on the slaves, if that doesn't fall under the scout duties to assign.

Soooo, would that make them "escorts"? Hah! Okay, I can laugh at my bad jokes another time. But, yeah, once it's done, we can scout through the participants for a half-way decent defensive unit! I love loopholes!

Hmm, well aside for a one or two lookouts keeping a watch on the ruins to make sure the slaves don't sneak off on us, I don't see that there is much to suggest to the Il'haress until we know (officially) what Q has seen.

The events update and the map that Thalar linked to took a big load off of my (kirio's) mind. It's very unlikely anyone from Chel'el'Sussoloth is going to bother to come way out here by chance. Other escaped slaves might come this way, but if they had any knowledge of the city's outskirts they would know that there are many much more promising places to go than this out of the way abandoned cavern with no connection to any major trade route.

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the slaves in the ruins ended up here because they were fleeing in a panic and got lost.

Combing back, eh? ;P It's good you think of hygiene, even in a time like this. :D (I know, terrible joke.)

Anyway... to the matter at hand.

The lookouts for the slaves aren't much of a priority to ME, personally.

More so, I'd like to, after the tournament, post something along the lines of-

"Train tournament winners for fighting/gaurd force."

I'd mention something about the weapons, but I feel they wont be finished. Also was considering something along the lines of 'find diplomat to reason with slaves,' but again, it could wait, and also, too many different things per post might be unhappy.

PErhaps the one after could be 'Arm gaurd force and have them practice for a day' and then 'find diplomat to reason with slaves, escorted by guards'
Or something along those lines. (Those two have not been tested.)

(Note- this has been tested to fit the suggestion box. :3)

Any alterations/suggestions? Post-tournament, hopefully we can start getting

give me a break ^-^ combining school + work I'm making 74 hours week...
It's even more when you think that the 3 hours between school and work I spend it... at work ! so it would be more like... 89 hours, It's a miracle I can post anything ( happy breaks ! )

So yeah... I take the hugs XD

Well, thing is I don't think they should immediately got to meet the slaves- first they have to practice with the weapons, and wait for them being finished. During that time they can train, and once they're done they should get used to the weapons before confronting the slaves.

So, have them practice, then maybe after that would be a good time to have a diplomat found for dealing with outside clans and slaves. (Especially as it should coincide nicely with Quel's return.)

Or even reverse it, or do both at once. :3
