So, we start off with the quote of the day. Those that were present for last night's figurative fireworks in the Inn and Back Alley will, without a doubt, understand immediately.
"We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harms we do, we do to ourselves."
- Mitch Albom
And speaking of last night's fireworks...
So, firstly I want to pass out a HUGE thanks to EVERYONE that participated last night, in whatever way they decided to contribute - last night's play was some of the most fun I've had in a long time in live RP, complete with fighting, killing, things blowing up, and one shocking betrayal that will send ripples throughout Rhy'din!
Brian Ravenlock: HOLY HELL, man! I did NOT see that coming, not in a hundred - hell, not in a MILLION years! That twist alone made the WHOLE evening, by far, a very different occasion from what things started out to be, for just about everyone involved, including the villain! FREAKIN' SPECTACULAR! In all seriousness, that ONE THING made the WHOLE evening, and without a doubt makes the start of a storyline that was already big to begin with start to look HUGE!
Issy: I never thought there would be any point where Issy would be brought to the point of tears by anyone, and for DAMN sure not by the one who managed it. Issy's been locked in jail, her sisterhood threatened by an unseen enemy, seen friends killed, but never have I seen her left speechless and openly hurt that way! Awesome job playing last night!
Renna, the Betrayer: Well, the evening didn't end up the way you planned (at least from what you told me), but I have to say, your gift for adapting to twists, turns and the input of everyone involved never ceases to amaze me. And now she has a shocking, powerful new ally...oh, I SO cannot wait to see what's coming next!
Trixie McCallister: VERY nice to see you again! You should come out more often!
Grem, Ebon Ilnaren, Katt, Raye, GentleRestraint, HX-909-A, Icer1978, and the others I'm probably forgetting in she shuffle: All of you were great! Seriously, it's not just the major players that make a story, particularly here - they may be the meat and potatoes of a storyline, but the characters that get caught in the middle, that watch fearfully from the sidelines or leap into the fray when they're not even a part of things are what gives it flavor. Awesome and a thumbs up to everyone!
So here's looking forward to the start of something new that looks like it's going to be epic! And, just to add some tequila to this mixture, we have the pending return of Giminicka!
So sweet! BRING IT ON, B*TCHES!
