130508 Aftermath

Postby suntiger745 on Wed May 08, 2013 8:43 pm

Based on the option posted it seems they were either posted before the LA went up, or the LA wasn't clear enough that the battle was won.
I had actually planned to have most of the strike team taking on the rods and kashyra mimians to die (the high price) but since this was supposed to be a side quest on the way to the next skyport Kern adviced against it and also choose to end the fight pretty quickly (granted, they do tend to drag out otherwise ;)).

So, in this page Dan'iira plays Miss Exposition for panel 1.
Ombr'eh is directing the healers and volunteers. I included the names of some of the people who had healer listed as their profession, but since none of them were paying players they got voice cameos only.
Oh, and Purrsha shows she does know some first aid after all. ;)

Durlyn checks up on Vars and plays Mr Exposition for how the guards are set up and. Also, some of the scouts went out again and Minalia has woken up (she was actually awake last page too, it just wasn't shown).

Since the rest of the advices either dealt with the battle (which was over) or overlapped with each other a bit I improvised from then on.
For some of the options regarding the battle I tried to at least bake them into the exposition but the result feels a bit forced. :(

Still, effectively having some "free" panels (not something I expect to happen often) I took the opportunity to include the cooks, who haven't gotten much screentime.
And Vishka, who is helping by carrying bowls and spoons.

There's also a bit of exposition from the captured Kashyra officer about why the mimians were there. She made sure the retreat was orderly but stayed a bit too long and was captured by the Nal'sarkoth.
Without the actions of the tei'kaliath though, that capture would not have been possible.
And now you can have the officer as a slave if you want to. Or kill her, or have her sent back to Mimaneid in discrace. Depends on what you advice. :)

Oh, and a small mistake from Reza in the last panel.
The speech balloon that begins with the sentence "One attack on an outpost so far from Mimaneid? <snip>" is spoken by Dan'iira, not the kashyra officer.

I'm led to believe that this force that gave us this much trouble really is the prelude to something worse.

and I'm hoping some mana specialist puts up the options to study those gems in the kashyra armor :L

Oh it is a prelude, just not towards the tei'kaliath. :)

It means this isn't our fight, the nals can handle it

so we should stay until the worst wounded were ready to travel again.

Do something to that woman where she doesn't end up with us. Anything, just dont let her on the ship.

Lets leave, and maybe offer to scout from the air we are in no condition to fight another battle.

Lets get back on our mission.

The nals owe us one now, I think.

Not really. The operation that this attack was a distraction from is not something that will affect the tei'kaliath.
There are many events going on in the world. The war raging in Chel for example. Or the civil war in Nuqrah'shareh, neither of which touches the tei'kaliath. This is in the same vein. :)

The Nals do owe you, but they'll paying of all or a huge part of that debt by helping with the wounded. Without that Nal rescue and medical care they would be dead.

A Moonless age development? Sounds... interesting. *wee*

Nah, it's a PTP thing. It just won't affect the tei'kaliath. :P
The story follows your characters in the clan but the rest of the world doesn't sit in a vaccum when you're not observing it. ;)
I like to put in references like this now and then, just as a hint/nod that there are other things going on in the world too. That have their own stories and happenings, separate from the plot that actually gets shown.

Wait, what? What about my rescue squad advice? How can you just ignore that and take it out of the Nals' debt to us?

Kale'shido- I would've gone to the Sarghress, like the other exiles, but I fear for my family's safety as much as my friends'.

Chronology issue. Rescue the squad option would have worked if the leader archive hadn't ended the battle.

Since the other tei'kaliath didn't see the strike team was in trouble until the LA page and the battle ended in the same page there was no way I could include other tei'kaliath rescuing them without ignoring what happened in the LA page and re-writing the continuity.
Since I also was adviced against having most of the strike team die heroically the only option left was to have the Nal'sarkoth take advantage of the (significant) distration provided by the strike team and attacking the mimians - rescuing said about-to-be-overwhelemed (and by then badly wounded) strike team in the process.

I guess tonight when I return from work I can just add an option for continuing to guard the ship and the area around it, just to be on the safe side...Just call me Commander Worf :P

We can always do a parachute with a dummy test if we're going to have the time I suppose. Or a parachute with a POW.

yeah, but we didn't know that (and our characters still don't). so we would have (logically) spent some time worrying about it.

Niar'suru isn't on the airship(He's owned by Hfar, who currently has Fila'sofi active), he's back at the colony with my other character(Jan'avin) raising their daughter(Ni'ainu). Ninorok, my other character, was/is a healer, and I do be a paying member. ;)
