Jared [GM]: They are all laying down and not moving.
Joanna: They could be dead goblins for all we know.

Flindar, Destroyer of Mountains

Sean: I could hold a sword in my teeth.
Roland: Don’t lean your head back.
Sean: Aaigh!
Jared [GM]: [mimes a Joker grin]

Winged dire corrupted war were-arachnogamelcorn from space

To the Temple
May 4, 2013

Meta-Garos: What we’re going to do is set the forest on fire and follow it through. Then it would be a plain. And I’d be more comfortable.

N’Pesh and Flindar: Why is the tree talking??

June 21, 2013

N’Pesh: Lizards. Squirrels of the desert.

Nathan: I’m not really from there. I’m from…
Sean: Space

Joanna [As NPC werewolves]: Oh, Nathan, your feet are delicious.

Jared: I’m going to call these the wolves of attrition.

VFA: You want to buy something?
N’Pesh: Maybe.

Nathan: We’re going to lose him so quickly here.
Garos: We need a leash.
N’pesh: And we could probably have him design it!

Sean: It’s obsquidian!

Once More to Tavere
April 21, 2014

Sean: People can’t handle the Garos.

Richwell: That’s very noble of you.
N’Pesh: Occasionally.

Kris: It’s an even guess whether it’s that she’s half-naked or half-elven that’s causing Flindar’s troubles.

Garos: My heart is hungry.

Jared [GM]: Nathan’s got you beat. With his armor on, his move silently is -4.
Sean: What’s he wearing?
Jared [GM]: Hide.
Sean: Isn’t that ironic?

Kris: You’re gonna kill Joanna.
Jared: Laughter’s good medicine.
Sean: Brings up all the good humors.

Garos: So which way do we need to go besides south, east, west…

[Nathan gives Garos a ring.]
Meta-Nathan: Now that you’ve accepted my proposal…

Sean: Level 20 Barbarian seamstress.
Joanna: I keep breaking the needle and then I rage.

Kris: N’Pesh, our stableman.
Sean: Well, someone in this party has to be stable.

N’Pesh: We meet again *eye twitch* …cat.

Joanna: Oops, I left the dog on. You weren’t supposed to know about the dog.

Joanna: Except when you released the Zombie Plague.
Meta-Flindar: That was my cousin Charlie…And no one talks about that. You swore the Oath with the town, N’Pesh. You swore the Oath.

Garos: We should go to a town with cheaper whores.

Jared [GM]: CSI N’Pesh.

Jared: By Kris’ phone. It’s a spider. It’s that big.
Joanna: I welcome our new spider overlords.
Sean: I’ve brought you four sacrifices!

Garos: We still have to get the other one.
N’Pesh: She can walk.
Garos: The half-eaten dead one?

About the Game

Tavere was the game Jared built after a bit of a hiatus for Vohl. We were all citizens of a small trading town on the edge of a desert. Most of our adventures were helping out locals, at least at the start of things.
