    I don’t know anything at all about golems. Gargoyles, yes. We have quite a few on the buildings where I live…

    Maybe that’s what Isaac/Teagan/Lytt can run into? That’d be a good way to replace/kill Teagan… 🙂

    Plotting his death, how sad…. (sure).

    I’ve already planned his death for his book. 😏 Hehehe… (It’s actually quite beautiful, and I love him the more for it.)

    @ everyone

     

    Sorry it has been so long since I was around. My calculus and German classes have been much more difficult than I expected. I should be able to write on Sunday afternoon though.

     

    @anne-the-noob14

    If you wan to write Dharin’s reaction to the new situation in the castle, that might help me have a better idea of what Vrahe would be willing to reveal. I am not familiar enough with Dharin to know what he would do in a situation like this.

    Yikes, guys, I’m sorry I disappeared! I’ve been slogging through my schoolwork.

    Lemme go see what’s going on in the chronicles!

    Okie doke, I don’t have a ton of time right this second, so I’m just gonna put a few thoughts out here:

    I like what’s been done with splitting up!

    Dharin’s attitude towards the split-up is… annoyed, mad at himself, and somewhat scared. Outwardly, he’s gonna be polite and thoughtful to the people he’s with (I forget who all he got put with), and probably won’t do anything stupid, but inwardly, he’s gonna be freaking out about Lytt, hoping she’s safe, and worrying that she’ll get hurt and he’ll have to live with that the rest of his life (cause the whole thing about protecting her, ya know). He’s also gonna take the first chance he gets (or thinks he gets) to go back to Lytt. Not literally retrace his steps, maybe, but (and this’ll be a rather extreme example, but it’ll get the point across) if there’s a pit of lava, and Lytt is on the other side, and there’s a pathway across the lava that’s like six inches wide, Dharin’s gonna go across it.

     

    Um. Yeah. That’s pretty much it for the moment. I’ll try to hop on later this weekend or next week and see what’s up.

    Oh, and answering @joelle-stone ‘s question, a noob is like… an unlearned person, in a way. I think of it specifically as like, someone who’s completely new to a video game. (I think it comes from the word “newbie”)

    “Enough! Be quiet! I can’t hear myself think! I can’t hear my teeth chatter!"

    Yeah, he can slip. *goes to see from how high up someone can fall without dying* Unless, we want him to be terribly hurt or die????

    Teagen would know how to land.

    – Lean forward into the fall—this gives you some control over direction.

    – Fall sideways, if possible.

    – Swing your arms sideways to direct your fall.

    – Twist your shoulder to protect your head.

    – Keep your knees bent and your feet down.

    – Fall like a sack of beans—relax everything.

    -Fall on the soft, fleshy places, like your bottom and thighs. These areas have more protection and are lower to the ground.

    – As you complete the fall, try to roll to your side in a ball. This will spread the impact to reduce injury and stop you from rolling further.

    Should I kill/wound him now?

    If he falls and survives he should be at least hurt. Though in pain he’ll likely made some snide remark about his clumsiness or fall, then wince and look away….

    How fast can Lytt fly @joelle-stone ? Can she fly faster than one falls? And then, how much could she break the fall if she grabbed him? Would she be the one who ended up getting hurt if they both crashed?

    How likely is Teagan to start a spouting philosophy when doped up on painkillers? (like he is now.) Or is he just gonna pass out and scare everyone.

    Oooooh @rusted-knight , good question. *ideas sprouting*

    I don’t see him passing out unless it’s a lot of drugs. He’d be groggy for sure, running into things and/or acting like a drunk… But, since he can’t walk, that shouldn’t be a problem

    He might spout philosophy. Not a right philosophy though = He might talk about how life is useless and why it’s useless. He might mutter a bit about his past. Mentioning how much he hates his mother and could blast her sky high, and then acting like he’s terrified of her.

     

    Again, very good question.

    @rusted-knight , are you writing another piece right now? Or, can I take it? I don’t want to jump your post, or vise versa. (:

    And how long will it take for the medicine to take effect?

    Nevermind, I posted.

    Whatever beasts they face: Can, ahem, one of them kill or more severely wound Teagen? To where death happens soon?

    *feeling really guilty about his death, but…. Nithel.*
