Hordewatch OOC & Game Discussion
As well as being the main OOC for this part of RoA the idea is that people can put forward game ideas/requests for discussion.

Speaking of which: Darkchylde, did you want to take the Thayvian refugees if enough cross over to keep that group together?  I could set something up for the other orphans.

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
There's at least four of us from Thay here, already, so that's a small group right there.  :-)

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
Yeah for Thay!  It would be really cool if we could get all of us over here and run something.  Perhaps it could even be worked into Thay when Vallah came back.  A dream sequence or a minor teleportation thing that might even help us figure out the blasted puzzle.  :p  *giggles*

It's even a Paladin/Wizard/Cleric/Rogue 4-man group!  Almost classic 4some!

When have you ever known a Thayan to be modest?  :p

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
So, I've been thinking about how this will interact with Vallah's Thay game.

I think we need to do something special to the items/loot in this Orphanage game.  Part of the charm of the Thay game is that we are stuck inside and has no access to outside resources.  We should probably keep that.

So, I think we should make sure all the stuff we get in the orphanage stuff should be labeled "Orphan" or some such, so that we don't use it in the Thay game, until we get the hell out of that blasted place.

I also would like to buy some stuff.  When I created this character, I had no idea what to buy with the starting 2700gps, and I took it mostly in cash-form, thinking I'll have some chance to spend the money...

No such luck :P

So, I'd like to purchase some items, and either label it to "Orphan", or sell it back at the end of the orphan game, so it won't disturb the Thay game.

What shall we do about exps gains in this game?  Kanas probably won't level up or anything, but some of you might.  I have no idea.  He'll forever be level 3, it appears.

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
Well things awarded in the orphanage are supposed to be usable, but as we're in the dungeon, that does make things a bit more difficult.  If Vallah agrees, I think we should get to use the XP right away but save any treasure we gain until either Vallah can just add it to treasure we would already find or until we get out or whatever.  Unless Vallah decides that this happened before or somehow within our current adventure, in which case we could have it right away.

Once we think we know what sounds good to us, I can take it to Vallah our next phone conversation to see what he thinks.

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
You mentioned a four person party.  Does that mean we're waiting for one more person or is that Andredi?
[Edit: Nevermind, I just checked the character sheets, it's Andredi.]

Personally, and this one's for you to decide in the absence of DM Vallah, I think Jyslyn's suggestion is a good one - take the XP but embargo any new items until Vallah gives the okay.

As for how to tie things in: Can I ask whether the dungeon/area you are in is shielded against scrying and teleport spells?  Otherwise, another Red Wizard can simply teleport in, requisition you, take you someplace else and dump you back there later.  It's not like they give much consideration to underlings such as yourselves.

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
We have a couple more PCs in Thay, not sure if they're heading over or not though.

I think we were actually teleported in, but I don't know if we could be taken out by a Red Wiz other than the one that put us in.

Isiah would definately know the most about that kind of thing of all of us, I think.  Perhaps when he wakes he can tell you.

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
Zed was an ex-player, who I was NPCing for Vallah. I won't be playing him here.

You could just assume that this orphanage adventure takes place shortly after you finish Vallah's quest (if it ever finishes!). So between the current adventure and the next one, you suddenly gain/lose all the XP and items you earnt/used here.

Anyway, an idea. I'll leave you to it.

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
Yeah, I don't want to disturb the Thay game really.  Enjoying that one.  I think separating this from the time line and moving it 'after' or whatnot is probably better idea.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we were teleported in, somehow.

And, Zed won't be coming along here?  But then who's going to be our smart, riddle-solving guy?  :p

The half-drow jumped up "Ooh! Ooh! Pick me! I can do those things!"

"Also choose you could me, if another gnome you want and not another bard." the svirfneblin babbled.


I might make him full-blooded Svirfneblin Ranger or something, as the Lesser breed and the Psionic Rogue never quite sat right with Schnickle. Also, he's ECL 6.

Re: Main OOC & Game Discussion
So are the two senior members of the Thayan party, so that's not a big problem.

It would be an odd group: A Red Wizard, a drow, a human cleric and an elf with an added half-drow and deep gnome.  Odd but not impossible.
