Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] "So I'm thinking we got us a trail 'ere. Lemme see if I can follow it."
Kyle: [OOC] Survival roll Dane.
Joe: [OOC] Given Bailey's usual rolling, I think we can safely start rolling up new characters. Maybe we can do a cool cross-over where our new ones find the frozen corpses of our old ones?
Soo: [OOC] Kyle had a good roll back at that shop before.
Joe: [OOC] Exactly, he's out of good rolls. And he doesn't have many to begin with.
Ian: [OOC] I don't think that's how probability works.
Dane: [GM] The trail is hard to follow but you can make out a faint path. There was at least a dozen people in this group and they're moving on foot it seems. The age of the trail is hard to determine given the windy conditions blowing snow everywhere. The trail heads off into the thin line of trees and presumably to the mountains not far beyond.
Kyle: [OOC] See? Good roll.
Soo: [OOC] All we know is what Dane said. It could be wrong or useless information until we get there.
Kyle: [OOC] Soo, please be aware of who your currently agreeing with.
Ian: [OOC] I'm going to have to agree with Soo on this one.
Joe: [OOC] Of course you are. "Oh Ian, the way you valiantly kinda stood up for me in that kinda-argument in a chat room. Here is my body, do anything you want to it!"
Soo: [OOC] Is it too late to start agreeing with Kyle.
Dane: [GM] You all suddenly notice a meteorite shaped like my face, contorted into a grimace of rage. It seems to get closer and closer to earth with each moment you AREN'T ROLEPLAYING.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey scoots off along the trail. "This way y'all."
Joe: [GR-210] "Opposition! The last time I followed a guy with a southern accent into the woods, it didn't end well."
Soo: [Kali dVostog] Kali follows behind Bailey.
Ian: [Mari Shasho] Mari follows behind Kali.
Joe: [OOC] And I'll form the head! The power is yours! Captain Planet!
Soo: [OOC] Dane, can that meteorite be very selective?
Dane: [GM] The trail leads you among the thicket of trees and it's fairly easy to follow now because there's plenty of shrubbery for things to get stuck on. You can see the other side of the woods and the white light bouncing off the snow. Beyond the thicket is a bizarre sight: a stone temple, half buried in snow. The parts of the temple you can see from where you are are truly massive and one can only contemplate how big the whole thing is. It seems to be built into the side of the mountains themselves.
Kyle: [Bailey Hunt] Bailey walks out of the trees and tips his hat. "Now that's er... somethin'."
Kyle: [OOC] Successful tracking roll. Suck it everyone. WHAT?!
Dane: [GM] Should I infer that as Bailey leaving the cover of the trees first?
Ian: [OOC] Uh-oh.
Soo: [OOC] Uh-oh?
Ian: [OOC] If a GM asks who does something first in a group, it's NEVER good.
Kyle: [OOC] Doubly so when the word 'cover' is used. And yeah Dane, I guess it's me (damn fast typing).
Dane: [GM] Oh... Ouch.
Ian: [OOC] For the record Soo, that's the other thing GMs say that never is good. There's actually 7 things a GM can say that's always bad.
Joe: [OOC] 9 if you play AD&D.
Dane: [GM] Just as you clear the tree-line, you see two men in snow-gear by the enterance to the temple. Upon seeing you, the jump prone and one snaps off a shot at you with what sounds like a rifle. Despite the distance, the bullet whizzes across Bailey's shoulder, giving him a minor wound.
Kyle: [OOC] Ugg, didn't I get hit in the shoulder yesterday?
Dane: [GM] With a chair I think. This is an entirely new kind of shoulder injury.
Dane: [GM] Oh, and one more thing.
Kyle: [OOC] Yeah?
Dane: [GM] Successful attacking roll. Suck it everyone. WHAT?!
