    This campaign has moved to MONDAY NIGHTs sometime after 5:30PM at the
    same place. Games will be held at World's Best Comics, 9714 Warwick
    Blvd Newport News, Virginia 23601.

    PART 1.

    We had a single extra large Combo pizza, with the pepperoni to one side
    to allow for the druthers of one of the participants.

    Remaining tasks for character generation were completed such as buying equipment, as we can't have the characters naked after all. Skills not
    yet rolled for were completed.

    I invoked my character flaw utilization system and issued two hand made
    3" by 2" cards to each Player invoking a quirk or flaw to be played on
    another character who has the flaw. Each hard has the name of a
    character and their flaw and its effect. The character who Plays the
    card gets an Honor point. The general idea is that HackMaster Quirks
    and Flaws are usually forgotten during the heat of play, and this will
    bring them to Player remembrance. Honor points are the incentive.

    The original characters from the old campaign were at the town's
    temporary inn. Except Aerys, the only one of the new characters who
    made this town her home town. And she's the town gossip.

    The new characters arrived in the morning and mingled. Aerys (a thief)
    stole the show by sitting down at Numrendir's table and ate his
    breakfast. To top it off he ordered a second helping, put it on
    Numrendir's tab and ate that too.

    When it came to business, Vixine and Blake hired themselves out as
    contractors at 1 gold piece per day and a share in party's proceeds.
    Though it wasn't specified whether it was gross or net. Aerys held out
    for an extra half share. As a token of the contract Numrendir issued
    to each shareholder a token of the contract consisting of an Electrum
    piece with a nick in it (a.k.a. a marked coin) to be redeemed for their
    share. The two other new characters, Dornorin and Jacko also were
    issued a coin contract. (I think, next session will make sure.)

    Numrendir also put the contracts in writing, I'll presume the results
    of his calligraphy will be displayed next session.

    As their first task, Vixine, Blake, and Honda as supervisor (more or
    less) went through the town door to door asking for a town meeting to
    discuss the problem of the bandits plundering, raping, kidnapping
    pillaging and raping again. The meeting to be held at sunset at the
    Temple of Pangrus.

    Of note during the door to door journey, they came to the two story
    tower occupied by Ernst and Bertram and were greeted by a guard asking
    them to check their weapons at the door. At which point a card was
    played forcing Honda to act out her flaw of being a Jerk. Honda
    refused which resulted in the door being shut in their faces.

    Much later at the appointed time, most of the town members showed up
    for the meeting which was conducted from the front steps of the temple,
    except Ernst and Bertram for some reason. Little was actually
    discussed about the banditry and the rapists, and it became apparent
    some townsfolk were unwilling to discuss it due to "privacy concerns".
    So it was put forth that the townsfolk could submit their issues in
    writing in a box at the temporary inn for a reward of one silver piece.
    (As as to the literacy of the townsfolk free services of a private
    transcriber was offered.)

    Elmo, one of the town's citizenry walked out shaking his head in
    disgust. Huang followed and was met with exclamations of "Leave me
    alone!" and "I don't want any part of this!" Followed by taking an
    alcoholic swig from a small flask. Aerys came to help suggesting to
    Huang that "We just leave Elmo alone for now, he'll sleep it off."

    Since most of the Town Council were also present they (except of
    course Ernst and Bertram) asked for a private meeting with Vixine,
    Blake, and Honda) in the temple immediately thereafter. Aerys tried to
    butt in but got kicked out (since she was not a council member).
    However, since she is fairy-kin and can fly she espied from one of the
    temple windows anyway.

    At the council meeting it was discussed the former evil Temple several
    leagues away and its history, including the meaning of its four
    symbols, anarchy, chance, immorality and insanity but not which meaning
    belongs to which symbol. Some attention was paid to the its destroyed
    outpost some miles away which may be hosting new inhabitants.
