OOC thread

We be Licktoads! We make raid!
Put the longshanks to the blade!
Burn them up from feet to head,
Make them hurt, then make them dead!

Cut the parents into ham,
Smush the babies into jam,
All the rest in pot get stewed,
We be Licktoads - you be food!


You are goblins of the Licktoad tribe, who live deep in Brinestump Marsh, south of the hated man-town called Sandpoint. Once, other goblins tried to burn Sandpoint down, and they would have been legends if they had succeeded. But they didn’t bring enough fire, and got themselves killed as a result.

Yesterday, your tribe discovered that one of your own had been using forbidden arts and was engaged in one of the greatest of taboos—writing things down. In fact, rumor holds that what he was writing was a history of your tribe! There’s no swifter way to bring about bad luck than stealing words out of your mind by writing them down, and so your tribe had no choice. You branded the goblin’s face with letters to punish him, which is why everyone calls him Scribbleface now, and then you ran him out of town, took all of his stuff, and burned down his hut.

That’s where things got interesting, because before you all burned down his hut, Chief Gutwad found a weird box within the building. Inside was a map and a lot of fireworks—fireworks that immediately came to use in burning the hut down. Then, this morning, Gutwad announced that tonight there would be a feast in order to drive out any lingering bad luck from Scribbleface’s poor decisions. But perhaps even more exciting, all of you have been secretly invited to meet at Chief Gutwad’s Moot House. Why would the chief want to speak to you? It can only mean that he’s got an important mission for you all... one that the other goblins of the tribe couldn’t pull off. This could be your chance to go down in Licktoad history!

Right now, you've been told to wait outside the Moot House by Gutwad's advisor, Slorb. Slorb is a very important goblin, because he's the only Licktoad who can handle the might of Chief Gutwad's words without fainting from fear. You've never heard the chief speak; as you all know, the words that come out of his mouth are so mighty that they might frighten away all the words in the heads of lesser goblins.

You know one or two of the other goblins gathered outside pretty well (what with you all being from the same village) but it's probably a good idea to make sure they know who you are, given how important you reckon this mission might be.

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
I sit on ground. I rifle through my bag and find something. I pluck feather from stuffed raven in bag and poke at my pet spider in his cage with feather.

I don't look up.

"I, Chuffy. I cut. I burn. I cut."

I put feather in my ear and stick it in good.

I scowl. I don't like loud yelling, unless I am the one doing it, or the one doing it is being stabbed by me. I pull another feather from Raven and stuff it in other ear. I scowl again. A postule on my foreheard bursts... I smile.

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
After you've been waiting outside for a few minutes, the face of Slorb, Gutwad's overdressed, pompous advisor, appears in the doorway. "Enter!" he calls, in a high-pitched, nasal voice, before immediately disappearing back inside.

I quick pluck two more feathers and stuff one more in each ear. With the sound around me slightly dampened, I stand up and wait for the others to step inside. I prefer to slink in behind. Always keep the backs in front of you.

I give Poog a shove. "You go in, Poog! Cannot make Slorb and His Mighty Girthness Chief Rendwattle Gutwad angry!" I smirk at Poog's back.

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
You all file in to the Moot House, the interior walls of which are covered in trophies, including scavenged enemy weapons, shiny treasures, and the brine-pickled bodies of dozens of brutally slaughtered small furry animals (mostly dogs). However, your attention is drawn to the centre of the room, which contains the famous Teeter Chair, itself taller than two goblins, one stood on top of the other.

Sitting in the great chair is the portly frame of His Mighty Girthness Chief Rendwattle Gutwad, silent and impassive as always:


“You all sit there!” commands Slorb, pointing at the area of dirt directly in front of the chief's throne.

A few moments after you are all sat on the ground, you are shocked when Chief Gutwad himself starts speaking to you in a deep booming voice!

“You all be heroes. Each of you. You are best Licktoads but for me. And maybe but for Slorb. That you aren’t fleeing in terror from mighty sound of my voice is all the proof you should need. Yet soon, all Licktoad goblins will know your might, for I have picked you for a dangerous mission.

“You know about fireworks and map we found in Scribbleface’s hut. Fireworks were fun. But map is more fun. It shows a route to a place near the coast where Scribbleface found fireworks. And it says there are more fireworks there!

“I want them for Licktoads. You all go get them tomorrow. Tonight we have big bonfire to burn bad luck away from you, and we play many games. Much fun. Tomorrow you fetch me fireworks. If you meet men, you make them dead. If you meet dogs, you make them dead. If you meet horses, you make them dead. If you meet Lotslegs Eat Goblin Babies Many, you maybe should run. And if you not find fireworks, you not come back or we feed you to Squealy Nord!”

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
Poog is touching his lucky toad for re-assurance. He is very impressed by the words of the Mighty Gutwad, but even more by the task they have been given.

All he does for now is nod his head. Suddenly realizing that is not impressive behaviour he speaks up.

"Poog will get you fireworks. Poog will kill and fight!"

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
Gutwad appears satisfied that you all seem to know what you need to do; "Slorb, give map to goblins!" he barks. Slorb comes forward, bearing a dirty piece of parchment with a crude map (including a squiggly line) drawn on it, and hands it to Poog.

Gutwad grunts. "Gutwad bored now, I go eat rats and get ready for bonfire now. You all leave Moot House now; I start bonfire at sunset." At the chief's signal Slorb shoos you all out of the building.

Sunset is several hours away; plenty of time to ask around the village about any topics of interest, or prepare yourselves for the following day's mission.

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
Outside of the hut, I pull a feather from my ear, and sniff it. I lick it clean, then stick it in my belt. I pull the rest out and do the same while talking.

"Poog, show me map. I want to see where we go. We get Fireworks. We bring back big burning to village. That Moot point. Is Scribbleface house still burning?"


I watch Reta out of the corner of my eye to see what she do next.

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
Reta pulls her veil over her face and giggles deliriously. "Fire-WORKS. FIRE-works. FIRE-WORKS! FIRE-WORKS! FIREWORKS, fireworks, FIRE, FIREWORKS!" she chants eagerly as she exits the mighty Gutwad's presence. "heheeheeheehehe HEEHEEHEHEEHE" she giggles while observing the other goblins squabbling over the map.

"Reta can't wait to fight. I LOVE TO FIGHT! Human, DOG, HORSE, slice THEM ALL!" she hushes herself for a moment. "But MAYBE not Lotslegs..." Looking back and forth between the others, she tries to hide her fearful gaze... and then she begins to admire herself in her small silver mirror.

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
Chuffy snatches the map off Poog (as Poog seems to be too busy stroking his toad) and spreads it out. It takes Chuffy a few minutes to see what's what, but eventually he figures the simple map out out. It shows little more than the Licktoad village, the place where the fireworks are supposed to be (which is drawn to look a bit like an old shipwreck on the map), and the creek that runs between the two places. By following the creek, you should be able to reach the old wreck without too much trouble. Unfortunately, it looks like the wreck is also located in the part of the swamp that all Licktoads know to be the territory of Vorka the cannibal.

Poog finally is done and goes to see what is on the map.

"Not good, not good......dangerous yes. We kill, get fireworks and go back. Where fireworks in village? Go see there.

Poog tries to remember what the stories were about fireworks in the village.

Re: Paz's WBG! PBF - Killgull Gang - IC
As far as you know, the only fireworks in the village were the ones found in Scribbleface's hut, and those were used to burn down the hut. The fireworks marked on the map are in the old shipwreck, which is some way across Brinestump Marsh.

"Reta wants know about Lotslegs Eat Goblin Babies Many?"

Chuffy holds up his cage with spider in it.

"Lotslegs scrabble and slobber, Lotslegs sting and bite. Old story of Goblin Lotslegs Slayer, Chief Gutwad's many sire. He kill Lotslegs. They angry at Licktoads now."

Chuffy holds his cage up close to Reta.

"They kill mighty goblins. You kill them?"

Chuffy thinks about what he has heard about how to kill Lotslegs. He wonders if he should tell Reta.
