Sorry guys! I should have come back and confirmed, but my brain is going wierd with this. My BP and heart rate are normal, no temp, but my co ordination is off, I am not thinking clearly, and have to consciously focus to think or say anything, and my limbs feel weak.

I sure hope this is some kind of flu onset and not something more serious.

I won't be able to make it due to relatives coming over, 95% likely to be followed by some sort of family dinner that will just happen to occupy the same hours as game time.

OK then, Pre Gens

Merula Lanus

Merulas father was a dedicated physician, Minax Lanus. Nearly two decades ago, a terrible

plague struck his village. Minax worked many sleepless nights attempting to save themhis

young daughter by his side. The two of them survived, but Minaxs wife eventually succumbed

with dozens of the others.

The incident drove Minax mad. He became obsessed with experimenting on the dead

to improve his craft and find a way to stave off death. He quickly left mundane medicine

behind and turned to magic, then necromancy. Merula spent the decade by his side,

learning magic surrounded by the dead and gaining a unique perspective on life, to

say the least.

But her fathers madness went far beyond experimenting on the dead. Merula

eventually learned he was experimenting on the living as well. She ran away

from home and saw that her fathers minions had been preying on the weak

for some time.

Merula tried to stop him, but in the climactic battle realized her father had

already transcended lifehe had become a demi-liche. The young sorceress

was no match for such a creature, so she fled, swearing to return one day to

end Minaxs evil once and for all. Merula believes that confrontation will mean

her own death as well.

Marcus Two-Hands

Marcus grew up a street-rat. His natural skills caught the eye of a master

thief called Lady Fog. Marcus trained under Lady Fog for years, becoming

her favorite pupil. But she forbade him from the biggest jobs and Marcus grew

resentful. Eventually, he attempted to steal the Cats Eye, a massive gem

owned by one of the citys wealthiest nobles.

The young thief was caught, and after terrible torture, revealed Lady Fog and

her entire operation. Lady Fog escaped but many of Marcus companions were

tossed into the dungeons. Marcus himself was told to leave town and never

come back. He hit the road and has since been trying desperately to become a

better personif he can just overcome his natural greed.

Gar Ironhelm

Gars mother was a human soldier, and the only thing she ever said about his

father was that he was the only man to ever out drink her. She cared for her son

as best possible but that mostly meant training him to be a warrior because as

she put it, People will pick fights with you because of who you are. I can only

make sure youre the one left standing when they do.

Gar is a bit ashamed of the blood rage that comes over him in battle, but has

learned he must accept it if he is to control it. Control has proved elusive so far,

however, so in the meantime he tries to avoid fights if at all possible.

Its a hard life for Gar, and for some reason, the breaks never seem to go

his way.

Ramel Ramelson

Ramel remembers the defining moment of his life clearly, and will tell anyone about it

without pause. He was a young warrior of his clan caught up in a battle with orc raiders.

Snow fell in blinding sheets within the mountain pass and somehow he ended up behind

enemy lines facing the leader of the orcs.

Their leader toyed with Ramel, knocking his weapon away into the snow. Ramel

reached out blindly and his hands came upon a huge icicle formed from the side of

the rocks. He broke it off and did the thing that changed his life; he praised Ylias

Frosthammer and asked for the strength to defeat his foe. A chill ran through his body,

reenergizing him, and as the orc leader appeared out of the snow, Ramel crushed his

skull with one blow of his frigid weapon.

It wasnt until he returned to his clan brothers that he learned his hair and skin had

turned ice blue, marking him as one of the frost-touched chosen of Ylias.

Rank: Seasoned (25 XPs)

Attributes: Agility d6, Smarts d6, Spirit d8, Strength d8, Vigor d8

Skills: Faith d8, Fighting d6, Healing d6, Intimidation d8, Notice d6, Persuasion d6,

chain armor (+2)

Fox

Fox was a scout for the elven armies for many years. While young by elven standards, he has been

around long enough to remember several wars between the elves and humans, dwarves, and other

races. Hes slain far more of them than he admits to, and several years ago decided to leave his people

and spend some time around the lesser folk.

Fox genuinely regrets the wars of his past and now revels in fighting alongside them against true

evil. He hopes to one day return to his people and tell the tales of these valiant souls so that future

conflicts might be avoided.

Rank: Seasoned (25 XPs)

Attributes: Agility d8, Smarts d8, Spirit d6, Strength d6, Vigor d6

I'll be there - might have to leave 15 minutes early, though, due to various people's travel plans involving me taking them to the airport at very odd hours

Io woke up today extremely sick, so I will not be able to do anything or run the game. Sorry, I would if I could but I am pretty much going to sleep and wake up to eat soup and take meds today.

I have been thinking with my going to be out of town next week, etc... that it is probably best if we just leave EPIC as being done and move forward. If you guys want to go back and truly finish we can, but I suggest we do it after the new year.

So what do yo guys think? Soldier on and finish EPIC, or just move on to the next RPG?

either way works for me, but if you're going to be away next week, maybe we should leave EPIC for now and move on to Heavy Gear.
