Just thought of this......Sammy my main cat, you are 2nd SET and BC. Maybe your Location should be: Last of the 2nd SET/Black Company or Legion Liaison Officer to the Black Company or Survivor of Carlsbad ?
It is 1st Quarter 2018 - So you all have your new Adventure Cards rolled for and picked out, and have reset bennies. Unlike before, I am not throwing down a Interlude at the start of the Quarter. I am saving the Interlude for later. Likely February, depends on how the Gloom Story goes.
Speaking of the Gloom Story...here is whats what.
After you all finish up posting in the Aftermath Thread, Reporting In Thread and Beneath Castle Thread, we (Pender/Lars) will post whats next.
Basically its: Alecto and Cantrell need to talk, decide on how they plan on handling the two missions that need to be done.
Mission 1 - Scara. Mission 2 - Pillars.
Alecto and Cantrell will need to decide if they want to mix up the teams or not. (GMs will provide more info on that soon, in next GM post).
After both Missions are done we (13th & BC) go get Giest.
Cade lifted some gold for you all: Each bar is worth 200,000 credits - Lars
FYI the point of visiting the other dimension: 1. You are in on secret that Blackwell (might be alive, maybe) was part of the Future Brigade. 2. You have the communicator now to call for help in final battle vs Giest. 3. You were to be each given 200,000 in gold "from Blackwell".
Point, no armor or weapons from Conner Drake are forth coming. Want stuff? Buy it from Naruni Ent in Gloom or at the Northern Gun Rep in Castle.
(OOC post what you are trying to buy, if you have cash, we will get it done).
Samson in character you will come across a set of PA when the time is right.
You all are awesome and I had fun playing with you in the Black Company! I am taking 1 Quarter off from Game Mastering. I will be on as Flint in the 13th SET as a Player. I will be on as a GM to do occasional admin things like EP Requests Etc I will start a new Game here come July 2018 (sooner?): Either Goblin Corpse, Chaos Earth or some new brain child I dream up. I wanted to let you know whats up, so you can place BC Character on hold, or move to a new SET or whatnot. I am going to have a hard time not running a game, but really need to push out a book (that and full time job blah).
The Black Company was started by an adult Nightstalker Dragon named Blackwell. Blackwell and Lord Coake saw the Legion needing a down and dirty, shadow ops, Dark SET, to do what the Legion could not openly do. The Mercenary Company was secretly funded by the Legion and quietly did their jobs.
Many times the BC saved the Legion from dangers until through a twisted CS plot they were framed for killing the 2nd SET. After a long trial under fire the BC was exonerated and their name cleared. Working with the 13th SET the two groups put down Giest and brought peace to the city of Gloom. (March of 2018). It came at a cost though, many beloved heroes of the BC died to save the people of Gloom and fight for the Legion!
The members of the Crazy Eights, an elite squad within the BC consist of: (below XP includes MARS 20 XP)
Hans Greuber - [Techno-Wizard Shaintar Dwarf] - Earned XP as of April 1st 2018: 33 Alecto - [Android Tech Warrior] - Earned XP as of April 1st 2018: 53 Samson Malach [Human PSI PA Jock] - Earned XP as of April 1st 2018: 53 Carlos Caravello - [Human Tech Warrior] - Earned XP as of April 1st 2018: 38 Humble [Avatar of War Shaintar Ogre] - Earned XP as of April 1st 2018: 19 Sammy - [Feline MARS Personal Concept] - Earned XP as of April 1st 2018: 46
NOTE: At Quarter's end I will post everyone's XP and EP earned like usual, on March 31st 2018. I just posted XP early so you could use it if you wanted to - to make new characters.
The Black's Fate
The BC is finishing up the fight in Gloom. Afterwards a final post will be posted by Drust. I am still posting stuff for BC during March as we wrap things up. The Mass Battle vs Giest etc. The Black company will need to seek out their respective bases across N America and regroup and reorganize. This process will take some time, some minor missions may happen along the way, in fact when the BC reunites in the future (2019?) the opening Interlude may be: What have you been up to?
I am placing the Black CompanyON HOLDfor a while. Likely close to a year. I am putting GMing on hold too. I am going to take a few months off from GMing. April, May, June...and let a Quarter pass without running a game. Look out July 2018, I'm coming for you! This will give me time to devise a new game and to write the book/material I am working on IRL (I love PbP but seriously need my limited free time for writing this book, need it written and out of my head!).
I listed XP above, because you the Players in the BC can always move XP off the Character, and make new Characters here (savagerifts.com) for other games. I really do not see continuing the BC (maybe in future - it feels like a told story). However another GM may / can take it over if any want. Once I return to GMing here, I will run a new story with new Characters... I like the 6th AAT Goblin Corps idea, but might have other ideas pop into my mind between now and months from now. I so badly want to run a Chaos Earth game, it just would have to be a careful thing, I am working on CE material for Palladium. Playing a Chaos Earth game seems like what I will likely offer, but we will see.
I see new Rifts (and other Savage Dimensions) games forming, suck as 101st, my point is, feel free to jump into those games, don't wait for me. By the time I run a new game you will have lots more EP and if not I'll donate mine if needed for people to have enough ...
Thanks for putting up with the transition ...
I will be on as Drust now and again, looking to see if any Admin / EP needs to be handled etc.
I will be playing only one Character for now, Flint, in the 13th SET.
Thanks, you are all awesome and I had a ton of fun with you!! I look forward to more, new adventure with you when I start a new game!
Gordon, the barkeep and CS Spy...still lost to the Megaverse.
The Pub in the Outskirts was built as a opening location for the Black Company. Non-BC posted over 400 times there. 17000+ views. The Pub was always for the BC. As far as I can see, the most active group here to date is the 13th, and the BC is second, as far as Posts by members. The last year of gaming with you, the Black Company, has been awesome! Thank you all for being a rich part of the story. I loved every part of it.
My plan is to put GMing on hold for 1 Quarter. April, May, & June 2018. Returning July 1st 2018 with a new game. What that game will be, I do not know, but I will be sure to let you know. If you have any desire to play in it, I'd love to have you all there.
For now, I sincerely thank you for playing and I will be on occasionally as Lars to do EP stuff and I will be posting as Flint.
You are awesome Black Company: Special Operations Group Eight "The Crazy Eights": Game on!
Super Fun time man! I'll see you next quad! Elf Grill is a goblin made for any game and any time! Whether it be the early demon plagues of Chaos earth, or the space warping time bending fringes of Phase world, one thing is for sure Elf Grill will be there.
Each Humble and Hans have a spare success to apply to any other task, due to our PHENOMENAL rolls. Just 1 more success at the door is all that is needed, if Humble and Hans both apply the extra success that way.

I did not read that we could move them once we roll them?
Is that allowed, if so then humble will definitely help at the door also because he only needed an 8 to help Samson and he got a 26. So we are sitting on 4 extra successes.
