Stuck at Home

Helping the Consorts

With the items and know how for some climb checks Joey decided it was time to explore his unforgiving world, beyond the reaches of the Eye Stone’s power. Fortunately he had discovered a underground passage that would let him avoid the harsh weather. It took quite a while to proceed but he eventually found a underground gate, guarded by a badger. He was greeted rather awkwardly but soon won the badger over with some kind words. The gatekeeper was called Geo, and offered his assistance in getting around the underground city and offered as much information as he could manage. With the badger’s aid Joey visited the mayor of the city and the fordge, a fine place to get weapons made. As the smiths did not have a call to make shields and the like for someone Joey’s size, they set about their comission, loaning him the largest sheild they had around in the meantime. Joey was then called back to his home to help out with a stuation in the Land of Harbors and Rope.

Kim had been exploring her land, avoiding the harbor were imps had been causing problems for the Albatross. With a little swimming work she mannaged to get to some islands around her own, some of which held helpful items. However, she had a goal in mind to clear the imps from the harbor on her island so that she could enlist the aid of Rik to sail her around the Land she had found. With the help of Joey on the server end and Link Sprite she found that as long as she lured the imps to her house, victory was trivial. Grist gained and imps gone, she went to give the albatross the good news.

Meeting The Doctor

After The Players got through the preliminaries a battle tutorial totally did not occur, and yet they found themselves with much handy Grist to play around with. However, almost immediatly by some sort of fortune, Kang was pestered by some unknown party. They had no chumhandle and offered no name. Free to select the a name for the mysterious person Micheal dubbed them The Doctor, which seemed fine enough a title for them. They conversed for some time, before Micheal thought things were getting far too weird and tried to end the conversation. The Doctor did not seemed to be pleased at this and suggested that he fall asleep. The urge to do so was overwhelming, and Micheal fell asleep, much to the bemusment of his server player Andy. He soon found himself in a strange dream world, and quickly found Joey sleeping therein. But some stroke of luck he woke the sleeping player in the dream world, making Joey fall asleep in the Land of Rays and Roil. They began to explore the purple colored dream world they landed in to find out what was going on.

Meanwhile Kim and Andy were slightly perplexed as to how both of their freinds had taken such and inopertune time to nap when Kim got a pester from The Doctor. The Docotr offered to answer some of her questions about SBurb, and revealed some helpful information about Denizens and cryptic information about why they were there. He then offered to send her on an adventure, which she accepted after informing Andy about the entire conversation. Kim then fell asleep and woke up in a yellow tinted dream world, and found a sleeping Andy, who she mannaged to wake up.

Both pairs of dreamers met with an Observer, each located in an observatory and both attempting to help the dreamers if they could. Joey and Micheal were informed of an Eclipse, which sounded fairly ominous and hours in the future. Kim and Andy were offered glances at the planets, observing their worlds and that of Derse, the purple planet. Both pairs then elected to visit their dream land’s monarch, the Black Queen and the White Queen. By some sort of magic they all left favorable impressions on the royalty, who answered some questions for them. Most importantly, they discovered that the Black Royalty were often what Players were supposed to fight against, but that need not be the case. As The Doctor suggsted, it seemed that there were many ways to play this game.

After the parties left the dream world and woke they had time to mull over what they knew and decide how to proceed.

Game Start!

You and your friends have finally set aside time to play this stange SBurb game, picking a nice Saturday morning to get things done. Micheal had won a game contest previously, and awarded each of your friends a copy of the game already, so all that was required was to install and play. You decided to offer your friend Kristin a place in this game, but apparently she was playing with some of your other friends, though she proved to have some information about the game for you. With the idea of a timer for the game, Andrew and Micheal were selected to test the waters of this new game. It became clear rather quickly that this game was much different from other games, and that the server player could see the client player and change positions of items in their house.

It became clear rather quickly that each player did have a time limit, displayed on something called a Cruxetruder. Besides popping out a Cruxite Dowel, it also released a Sprite, one of the only things the SBurb guide was clear on. However, what became evident was that the timer had some connection with a Meteor, headed directly to Micheal’s house. Kang and Andy worked quickly to get their task completed, and thrust Kang’s house into a strange new place, safe from the meteor. The pressure was on for the rest of The Players to get going and make sure time did not run out before their houses got demolished.

With some quick game manuvering the rest got their houses saftly away, each entering a land of their own. Their Prototyped spirites told them their titles, and the name of the land, and tired to be helpful as far as they could. Michael played The World Pipes with some help from the more musically inclied players and Kim discovered there were imps running around the lands. But that was only the begining.

To be Continued…
