Carnegie frowned, both at Marcus's reprimand as well as his cussing. She did however crouch down to hold Elvis's collar in her left hand, smiling at Asha in response. As she passed the computer, she tried reading the green text.

Val attempted to look nonchalant, having melted into the party once the first imminent conflict had resolved itself.  He wondered what the local laws of ascension were in these parts, and who else might have claim to the Lady's title. 

He knew what he would say, but kept his tongue in check, instead rehearsing in his mind the path to get him behind the guards. Don't let them suspect the wimpy guy has teeth...

Lucky tensed at the arrival of the guards, eyeing the crossbows with distaste, lowering himself closer to the ground and tensing to spring as the acting lord began to speak, if a fight were to break out he would be the first to die. She shook himself slightly at Silveressa's hand on his back, the touch at once both reassuring, but also distracting.

Silveressa eyed the guards with distrust, her hand on Lucky's neck tightening ever so slightly, as Echo leaned in to speak to the castellan, giving Tusserk and Val sideways glance, ready to act if Echos persuasion attempt should fail catastrophically.

Liantirie raised her hands, smiled apologetically, and leaned in to the castellan, whispering:
"Looks like you were expecting us, also looks like you have a preconceived notion how this should play out. But let's go inside and discuss the best solution, shall we?"
She then gave a very Russian kiss on both of the castellan's cheeks.
"Well met, Lorclodo Dunsen. We have matters of import to discuss, matters that bear not an open sky above."

Greetings all.

I'm Zjierd (zshyeerd is a mangled pronunciation for those wishing one). I've been running games for about six years at this point, though not consecutively due to some health issues. In that time I've run four games - a one-shot at a convention, a summer adventure this past summer, a three year campaign that ended due to my health falling apart at the end of my Undergrad education, and a new campaign that started a few months ago and is set in the same world and time frame as the three year campaign. My system of choice is Fireborn, even if I want to thump a few lazy devs for some of the stupid things I've found in the books. (EX: Did you know that 50 MPH winds are capable of ripping houses apart and throwing trucks around like toys?  :what: ) I'm also currently a player in a Seven Seas game, and have played Legend of Five Rings, Shadowrun, old World of Darkness, and, of course, D&D 3.5 in the past. 

Outside of gaming, I'm a programmer with a Masters in Computer Engineering. I cycle my free time between reading, playing video games, doing digital art, trying to write, and painting a Lizardmen army for Warhammer Fantasy. I doubt I'll ever actually play Warhammer even when I complete the army; I've never particularly cared for tactical war games no matter what form they come in. Honestly, I just love the models and painting them.

I'll read pretty much anything put in front of me and my library reflects this; I have pretty much everything from fantasy to science books on my shelves. I think the only large category I'm missing is horror, and that's mostly because my active imagination doesn't need more nightmare fuel to disturb my sleep with. My video game choices are pretty bog standard: rpgs and adventure games mainly, though I have a soft spot in my heart for Warriors style games, and a gigantic soft spot for Hyrule Warriors. =P

I write fantasy or sci-fi whenever I can force myself to sit down and actually write. More often than not, I get fixated on world building and just keep building and building and building and never start putting a coherent (or even incoherent!) story to paper. I do participate in NaNoWriMo (and oh friggyfrag that's in two days! Quick! To the panic-mobile!) which seems to help a bit, but then real life swamps me out and there goes that motivation.

Anyway! That's about me in a nutshell. The main reason I joined was because I agreed to run a Fireborn one-shot again in the local gaming convention in March, and have hit the 'flail around desperately and wonder why I agree to this insanity' stage. There are a few one-shots provided in supplements, but I don't really like them all that much. I'll default to one if I have to, but I prefer making something of my own.

Asha nodded, holding her pistol at the low ready and giving the computer terminal a passing glance as she slowly moved past looking for any pertinent info already on the screen but deciding against using the machine given the chance of it triggering an alert of some kind of she failed to authorize herself.

She gave a backwards glance at Carnegie and Ayna shooting them a thumbs up with her left hand and letting Marcus get a good fifteenish feet in front of them, room enough for him to maneuver or fall back without tripping over them but still in easy conversation range and more than close enough for her to provide adequate covering fire should it prove necessary.

I agree completely as is the Stargates would make  in system terraforming obsolete, however You could limit the gates range to within the solar system due to signal depredation making it just churn out a slurry of corrupted partially assembled people and mechanical bits when trying to transmit anything over a distance of 1 AUish. (Caused by distant Pulsars and insterstellar background radiation from the big bang chaffing the signal over time.)

Assuming you still want space travel to be a thing you could add in signal corruption from sun spots, so the gates are only functional at certain points throughout a solar year with off periods of months, (perhaps even years) keeping space travel a practical alternative. This way the gates are completely in system and keep them from making things too fast and easy to travel by.
