Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Happy to report the back is getting better with the help of Advil.


Quality control moment: Anyone want to share their thoughts on the adventure thus far? Too slow, boring, great, fun? Feedback, even criticism, is fair, and I am a firm believer in listening to the players in a game.

Feel free to let me know what you like, don't like. I'll respond with respect, and will incorporate ideas that make sense in the overarching game.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Sorry to hear about another fellows back > the yard gods have blessed me this year and I have avoiding my otherwise yearly period of intense disc inflammation and pain, followed by lying around for two weeks eating Advil and being an asshole to anyone who comes near me. Gets worse with age, so I hear, and I can attest that I had never "thrown out" my back until I reached 50. (sigh)

I embrace the term "waggler" is my head bowed in gaming shame.
I shall hope to correct it today.

As for level limits or not, I don't care one way or the other. But Kullonar does, and he thanks you :)

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
I think it was the swelling in my lower back that worried me the most. I felt all along it was muscle strains, but right at my tailbone, there was a sharp pain any time I moved Wed & Thurs last week. Got better over the weekend, and today I feel about 80% better.

Still think it's muscle, but now I think there's a bit of inflammation in the lowest disk as well.

I don't mind getting older, I just mind the shit that comes with it.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Just posted a new map

The upper right hand corner is the room you stayed in last night.

The chamber surrounded by corridors is the room with the crystal in it.

A couple of you explore far enough to the left to realize the corridors seem somewhat like a labyrinth.

Others, including Kullonar recognize the corridor leading 'down' the map.

So, you have a couple of options.

Good luck!

Have to laugh. I use a 10 sided die for wandering monsters. Of course I rolled a 1.

I'm taking a long weekend, which means that I'll be relying on an iphone until Tuesday evening. Will try to post, but will probably be slow.

Gang - Initiative is yours. Zombies in 1st edition are REALLY slow, and never win initiative. So your initiative rolls are practice.

Howdy - leaving for labor day vacation on Friday - Will be out of town Until the following Sunday (9 or 10 days). Will have some internet, so I should be able to post a bit, but it'll be slow.

Nice job on the zombies. I'll post tonight, and try to post frequently between now and Friday to get you to a nice stopping point - will probably close the current thread and start a new one to set the tone.

Cheers.

Bhaa you're still able to post, it's merely softened up the damage is temporary.  Probably still a few years before any serious cirrhosis sets in.  Purchase a bottle of whiskey instead to make it tremble.

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Just read that - you're a funny dwarf Uthecar. There was a good bit of whiskey involved, but spent the past three days drying out so should be good by this weekend.

Heading back on Sunday - don't have my maps with me (well, that or I lost them in the drunken haze that was last weekend). Backups are at home, so...next post might be Monday.

I could always throw a dragon or two at you, but don't think that would be very sporting.

None of us are worthy, I've never played an 18+ level character either.  :o(

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Guys, keep Kullonar in your thoughts and prayers - he lives in the heart of Wilmington, NC which just got sucker punched by Hurricane Florence as it hit landfall with a vengeance in his neck of the woods.

I'm about 100 miles inland from the coast, so although we'll get heavy winds and a good bit of rain, I think we'll make it out of this one fairly unscathed. Maybe the power will go out, but I think that'll be the worst of it for me.

Thoughts and prayers to anyone else in the storm's path...

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Oh! I have a friend who also lives in Wilmington (never been there myself, but this fellow works with my husband who was out there earlier in the summer), so I get it.

Here's to Kullonar and everyone else in that beautiful place!

Re: OOC: The First Chapter - August 2016
Thanks folks > we're all good so far.
Been very fortunate where I live because we are not experiencing any flooding or power outages. Several parts of the county are swamped with water and have been out of power since early Friday...with no relief in sight for what could be another 7-10 days. We were quite grateful when the hurricane downgraded from a CAT 3 to barely a CAT 2 and even a CAT 1 at landfall. I don't think we could have sustained 130+ mph winds for a full day and a half; that would have devastated our city.
So, while that was great, she slowed down to a crawl and dumped a shit ton of rain on us for about three days and our inner city is under water as are many of the outlying neighborhoods, especially those close to the river or creek. And the worst is yet to come re: water > the Cape Fear River is projected to crest at around 32 feet on Tuesday or Wednesday from all of the rain upstate. This will flood most of downtown for several street blocks and could last for days.

So, while our little neighborhood got by pretty good, we are basically an island with water blocking all roads into and out of our city. Folks who evacuated will not be able to get back home for at least another week, possibly longer depending on how fast the flood waters recede.

Really appreciate the prayers and good thoughts > been hard to concentrate on anything but hurricane prep and weather reports for pretty much the entire week.

Now, time for some bourbon and some gaming!

Axe High!

We really gotta get a game going. I'm less than 6 hours away from Wilmington, which is a great city.
