Things are not looking good for our heroes.
Irish Rogue Saoirse's plan to divert enemy attention away from Snow White worked too well.
Saoirse was hypnotized to eat the enchanted apple and has fallen into the same death-like trance as Snow White.
Lady Regent Grimhilde now has Saoirse, Khajit the Feline Nature Sage and Paladin Bradamante locked away in the dungeons of Castle Ravenna.
The party is officially, as of now, three members down.
... And Bradamante and Khajit are nekkid. Well, stripped to their underwear, but they might as well be.
Zhi explained everything mentioned above to the remaining party members (Sara, Taran, Rose, Scorpius). Well, everything except Brad and Khajit being nekkid. Scorpius took note of something peculiar-
Scorpius: "You said that this old woman offered an apple and... Saoirse just ate it?"
Zhi: "It was weird, like..

When we last left our heroes, they had braved the boobytrap-laden mines of the Seven Dwarfs. They avoided death-by-fire, death-by-impalement and death-by-monstrous insects... though certainly not death by embarrassment, am I right? Heh, poor Bradamante. I wish I could say that was the last of her humiliating trials, but as this chapter will soon prove that was just the tip of the iceberg. It's all downhill from here, Lady Knight. Leave your dignity at the door.
Anyway, where were we? Oh yeah, we were jumped by the Seven Dwarfs.
Grumpy: "You have five seconds to take a swan dive into that pit, missy!"
Saoirse: "Whoa, whoa! We're not your enemy!"
Doc: "Prove it! We're not letting another slip by on good intentions!"
Saoirse: "What? No, no, listen-!"
The Irish Rogue fished out a familiar rolled up parchment from her sack and unfurled it

When we last left our heroes, the ladies had gotten into trouble with the law and burned down a perfectly nice tavern. Our future companions, Scorpius the Gunpowder Mage (:iconbrave-king-shishio and Taran the Bard :iconwikkier:, have resolved to track the girls down... and demand that they (but primarily Saoirse the Cuckoo, as played by me) pay recompense for the tavern. Well, Scorpius does, anyway. Taran's just there to play mediator in case things turn sour.
Our heroes marched through the woods, avoiding the roads, throwing off any potential chases the lawmen could dispatch. They were, for a brief period, in the cl

We start our story with our intrepid band of adventurers and eccentrics hiking on foot through dense and unforgiving woodlands, the Irishwoman singing a small little tune without a care in the world and a spring in her step,
"-But I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
Just to be that girl who walked 1000 miles
To fall down at your door!
Da-da-ta (Da-da-ta!)! Da-da-ta (Da-da-ta)! Dun-da-da-da-da-da-da-!"
She turned to her weary travelling companions, face alight with a sun-bright smile and eyes that glinted a merry joy clearly unfelt by the rest of the party.

No Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder or any tabletop roleplaying game would be complete without a colourful cast of characters... and their equally eccentric players. I've been playing with these guys for under two years at this point, largely the same crew of friends I've met on DeviantArt, and we've been conducting these games on a Skype Chatroom devoted specifically to tabletop gaming. I know it might sound difficult to run any tabletop game over Skype, but we've found a system that works for everyone involved.
Besides, in my own circle of friends irl, only two actually enjoy any Dungeons & Dragons. Sometimes, you have to make do with what you got...
... And what I got... is a group of good friends on the internet who also grew up with Disney, who could name their favourite movies, villains, characters, songs ~and princess waifus~ off the top of their heads. They also high fantasy, anime and roleplaying. They all get along

Ladies and gentlemen, here we are, at the precipice of... well, maybe a not lifelong dream, but a dream at least a few years old, approximately as old as the time I returned to the fold of roleplaying games after a long absence. So three, maybe four years? Maybe less? Sounds about right. Although now that I think about it, even if this dream specifically is fairly young it isn't without its precedents. I wouldn't have been as compelled to do it if I weren't already a lifelong committed fan of Disney years before I'd ever pi
