Suppose I better post up details of James companion.

Name: Mr Smith
Perspose: Watcher.
He is posted in this world by the Alliance of dimensions as an observer but is trained and armed with weapons able to handel James other side. He will fight if attacked but is forbidden from starting any action that could change events in this world.
He has his own hidden talents of which one is that he is not human.
I suffer from a random misfiring synapse and a bad case of wolfen the turns me into a seven-foot-tall werewolf or a seven-foot great wolf!

I never understood how people would play rpgs and "in character" meet and instantly talk about their powers and magic items.    "I can fly and have a vorpal sword against trolls".....  But my character is shy and reticent.....

Hmmmm not so much based on his you play her lol.

So I will make apologies here for the gruffness of my ranger.  He is anti social, and having someone announce their,take,on who he is and tell all about the ranger is sort of an intrusion from his perspective.

I thought I was clear but just to clean it up, the Professor had spouted his "findings" of the ranger, then went on about being the only,one with no magic.

By addressing him in the last post in game, I thought it was clear that the ranger was annoyed with him specifically.  Sorry if it was not,clear.

Not meant to be an attack on you personally, a little spice and friction between the ranks keeps it interesting.
I don't know why I have to learn algebra... I have no intention whatsoever of ever going there...

"Uh-uh. I know what you're thinking. Did he discharge 6 chambers, or was it only 5? Well, I rather forgot myself, what with all this excitement and all. But seeing that this is a .45 Civiliser, the most powerful hand-cannon in the Empire, and will blow your goggles clean off, you ought to ask yourself a question. Do I feel lucky?

"Well, do you... steampunk?"

Oh I agree.  I was just playing out what the ranger would say and do.  No harm my friend.  Keep playing your man, it's all good!

Shame, James was looking for an excuse to "Show Off" some of his other talents.

I think it would be a hoot if the professor and I get stuck working together.   ;D 


Certainly Celia or Beety might read the portents and find it to be necessary?

(If he is agreeable of course, certainly I wouldn't want him uncomfortable in the game.)

I thought of that as I typed, so I added the idea that releasing the blast would knock me down.  Figured you said you were chasing first, so I shouldnt hog the big scenes as it were.  Go get him bro.

I think the shadow man is literally mr whites shadow separated from his body by magic. Like Peter pan.

Not actually angered by the way the game is going, just my character speaking. Just wanted to say so that no one is injured by my post.

Awesome.    I thought it,might have been a trick, since me carrying a bit of him,across,might count as being invited, and many wards don't work if you,invite them,in......   Or,is,that only,vampires?    Lol

I think some of the wards would work like that. And others would be more passive.

Depends on what kind of shadow the shadow is, if its a shadow shadow they only light will work, a shadow entity on the otherhand may be effected by wards.

Professor,  I apologize for presuming your actions as to the pub I just posted.   I don't like to,write another player "walked here, said that" etc.  But it made the pub thing a lot,faster to me.   If you don't like,the way I put it, let me,know I will delete the post.

Would anyone consider publishing this as an ebook when finished?

I was honestly thinking the same thing! it would be a great read, I think

Reid: No, it's fine, you have my character's actions and personality down to a tee! although, one little nitpick, my character isn't actually a professor, above all other things, he is a detective through and through.
