Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Good point!

If anyone has changes to make to their PC sheets, please do so ASAP over in Taverns, before I move them over here (I will move them here sometime Tuesday morning, Eastern Stanard Time).

Thanks!

Taverns XPs:

In RoA, we give out XPs for posting, RPing, and problem-solving as much as for combat and class-related skill use and story awards.

Here are XPs that reflect posting and RPing from the first session in Taverns.

I will also post this over in Taverns, in case you miss it here.

Please add these XPs to your PC sheets.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
silly newbie question:

where should I have posted my character sheet. The only time I ever posted it was in a PM to DM Mike.  Is that all I need to do? How do I edit it?

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
No, if you want to view and edit your character sheet you should go and look at your description (by clicking on your portrait/name on one of your posts) beneath your description there are two options: edit description and view character sheet. When you click on view character sheet you will see it displayed beneath your character information screen and between them is the edit character sheet option.

It must also be one of your posts in Taverns as they haven´t been moved here jet.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Sorry to intrude on your wonderful game but I'm updating the Player Character Locator so if your an active player please raise your hand...or your mouse, nah you better just write a reply in this thread..I will be using the description you have posted when you click on your avatar, if there's none there I'll go into your character sheet, if I still no luck you'll be left blank(You don't want that do you?).

Thanks for your attention, you can now return to regularly scheduled programing.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
TRAITS:

It's early enough in the campaign that I can add this with no trouble:

We RoA DMs are allowing PCs to add Traits from Unearthed Arcana.

You can pick 1 or 2 traits to add to your PC.

Adding them is optional, and you either do it NOW or never.

So, before we get into some combat and so on over in the adventure thread, pick a trait or two, add it to your PC sheet under Feats, then let me know here or in a private line in the adventure thread which trait(s) you took.    If I don't hear from you, I will assume you did not go for the Traits.

We will not be given PCs the chance to update after this first notice, and PCs can only take traits at PC creation time.

Here is a list of Traits and modifiers associated with them:

Traits: ("Unearthed Arcana")

Abrasive (+1 on Intimidate, -1 on Diplomacy and Bluff)
Absent-Minded (+1 on Knowledge, -1 on Listen and Spot)
Aggressive (+2 initiative, -1 Armor Class)
Brawler (+1 on unarmed attacks, -1 on weapon attacks)
Cautious (+1 on unarmed attacks, -1 on weapon attacks)
Detached (+1 on will saves, -1 on reflex saves)
Dishonest (+1 on Bluff, -2 on Diplomacy; non-lawfuls)
Easygoing (+1 on Gather Information, -1 on Intimidate and Sense Motive)
Farsighted (+1 on Spot, -1 on Search)
Focused (+1 on Concentration, -1 on Spot and Listen)
Hard of Hearing (+1 on Spot, -2 on Listen)
Hardy (+1 on fortitude saves, -1 on reflex saves)
Honest (+1 on Diplomacy, -1 on Bluff and Sense Motive; no chaotic-evils)
Musclebound (+1 on all strengh checks, -1 on all dexterity checks)
Nearsighted (+1 on Search, -1 on Spot)
Nightsighted (+10 feet on darkvision, -1 on Spot in bright light)
Passionate (+1 on fortitude saves, -1 on will saves)
Plucky (+1 on will saves, -1 on fortitude saves)
Polite (+1 on Diplomacy, -2 on Intimidate)
Quick (+10 feet on movement, -1 hp/level)
Reckless (+1 on melee damage, -1 on melee "to hit")
Relentless (+2 on saves vs. tiring; if fail, are exhausted)
Saddleborn (+1 on Ride, -1 on Handle Animal)
Skinny (+1 on Escape Artist, -2 to avoid being knocked over)
Slippery (+1 on escape artist checks against being grappled, -1 all other grapple checks.)
Slow (+1 hp/level, halve movement speed)
Stout (+2 to avoid being knocked over, -1 on Escape Artist)
Suspicious (+1 on Sense Motive, -1 on Diplomacy and Intimidate)
Torpid (+1 on saves vs. enchantments, -2 on initiative)
Uncivilized (+1 on Handle Animal / Wild Empathy,-1 on Bluff, Diplomacy, Gather Information)

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
XPs:

To the best of my memory (which is almost shot), the last I gave XPs was before entering Gregor's home.  If I am wrong, please let me know, and the first player who can come up with an accurate rendering of the XPs I have thus-far given gets 50 XPs!.

I'll go from the tavern, then to Snid's, then the courtyard, then the sewer, then RPing with Gregor.  (I'm stopping this post at Snid's since I know for a fact I did not give any out for that and the tavern.  Once I know where I need to go back to, I will give those as I need.)


The Tavern:

All PCs get 100 XPs.

On top of that, Styvan and Arion get another 200 XPs.

Snid's

All PCs get 30 XPs.

On top of that Styvan, Tethost, and Ebermior get another 30 XPs.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Hello fello gamers. I am DM Capn_Chord, and I will be taking over the region to give DM Mike a little bit of a break. He does far more work than any of the DM's in ROA so I am sure he needs it.

Just a little background on myself. I began playing D&D in 1993. Since then I have ventured into all manner of games and have gone back to play 1st edition up to 3.5. I enjoy a lot of interaction between the characters and would hope to see the group talking and getting to know each other IC. OOC talking and chatting are also encouraged as I've always found that the friends made while playing the game are by far the best part.

I will try to run things much as DM Mike has been doing. His style is a bit different from mine and I would like to try it out and see which I like better. You'll find I'm always looking for new ways to do things.

I should be posting to the game later today.

Thanks
DM Capn_Chord


P.S. BTW if everyone could give me a quick role call post, it would be appreciated.

Ok, it sounds like there is a bit of confusion as to what the group is doing. It was established that you were going back to Tarrans. However the reason for going there was not. Styvan brought up trying to get into the hidden passage. I will admit however that it would be really hard to get to with Tarran there in the shop in the middle of the day.

Ok, I must appologize for my own slowness of posting. I have been having some delays with major issues at my work and I've been out of town alot. I will be out again on friday and saturday of this week. I attend alot of concerts during the summer and this week will be seeing Nickelback and Three doors down.

I'm hoping that we can pick up the pace of the game a bit. There is a minimum requirement of 3 posts per week. I would like to see it at one per day and weekends off.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Hello, I just noticed that for some unknown reason my lattest posts has dissappeard. It was about five days ago that I made an update to the thread and after seeing Drakes post here, I went to look and it was gone. I will be getting that back up sometime today.

I do need to as what the situation with the game is. I have been a bit slow getting my posts out there. However, when I do post there is almost no response to it.  What is everyone looking for that is apparently missing?

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Alright, I'm confused as all hell about the game being transfered, now that I have two characters in RoA 2: Adventures. I'm slowly working it out but still seem to be posting the wrong information in the wrong thread.

I'm gonna have to bail. Beside the fact that I just saw the restriction of two characters in RoA (I have three), this game deserves someone who can post more regularly. Besides, if I drop my extra character then it allows for one more player to enter RoA, which I guess it the whole idea of the limit of two characters anyway.

Thanks for the brief, yet fulfilling roleplay and kudos to Capn_Chord for keeping it all going.

Ok, I have three players who are still active, and one player who has definately dropped out. I must hear from anyone else requesting to stay in the game by friday afternoon. If I have not heard from you by then the character will be placed in inactive status untill you return. Upon return you may be placed in a different region if this one is full.

After friday I will be opening the region to new players to fill the empty spots.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Ok for all of those who are remaining in the game, I would like to get a little dialogue started. I would like anyone to post a short recap of what has happened to the group so far. This will be an attempt to get everyone pointed in the right direction. Please also throw out some things that you would like to see happen. This game is about your characters. I need to know what they want.


My hectic summer is drawing to a close, all vacations and trips are out of the way and things should be slowing down. So some order should also be put back into my DM duties.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Tethost originally came to the Dragon Coast searching for the last known whereabouts of his parents.  Staying at an inn, he got into some near danger with some men dressed in black before he and another got conscripted to help a man who's bodyguard had gone missing.  After some slow starts (and an ignored possible adventure of a priest of Azuth that had lost his mind, which Tethost was compassionate towards), the group headed off to the alley where the man had gone missing.  From there the group ran into Gregor the necromancer, who Tethost established a basic relationship with, hoping to work with him in the future (due to their shared interest in Necromancy).  The party moved through the sewers, finding a dwarven corpse, then had a bit of a tussle when emerging from the sewers.  Tethost nearly left the party, becomming worried that he had lost sight of his goal of finding his family, but then reconsidered, worrying more about personal safety first.  The group returned to Taran's shop where Tethost attempted to distract him, and work towards a possible job in the future, but he was quickly retorted and Taran accused him of working for Gregor.  The group then regrouped outside, was attacked, and Tethost was hit with a poisoned arrow.  He was dragged into a fabric warehouse, where the group finds themselves now.

Ok, we have at this time, four players who will be continuing. I do appreciate the recap and will be getting the ball rolling. I would like to stick with the four of you for a short period of time. This will hopefully allow us to get some consistant posting started and it will give us a good core group for the new recruits to mesh with.

I will also be getting out some xp for the four of you who have been patient and willing to hang in there.


Thank You

Ok, again I wish to thank you guys for hanging in there. I have been slow posting due to summertime activities and all kinds of other good rl stuff. When the game has been moving the rp is great, and I blame myself for the slowness of things. Below you will find xp for the period of time from 6/26/04 thru 9/1/04. If anyone levels, please pm me with the changes to your character.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Hello all. I regret to inform you that you will once again be receiving a new dm. I took on the job thinking I had time to handle two regions here at ROA, but with recent happenings at my job and my home, I am really limited in the amount of time I can get on line. I feel it is unfair to have all of you sitting around waiting on me and have put in a request for another DM that can keep this region fun for all to take over in my place.

I have enjoyed the time that we have had here and may return in the future if RL Permits.

There will be more info on you future DM to come in the next few days.

I need a head count to see who is still with us.

Please post by 9am Wed. 10/20 (Eastern Standard Time).

Any players who do not post by then will be considered gone.

We had a DM lined up to take over, but I am not sure if that will happen, so I'm gearing up to get this region rolling again.

Thanks to those who have hung in there!

Just the 2 of you?

Were you the only 2 actively posting, or were others posting until Capn_Chord had to leave the region as DM?

Can someone give me an update of what has gone on in the adventure since I let Capn_ take over?

It looks like we have a DM lined up for this region, but it also looks like we need to get more players involved, too!

Give yourselves 150 XPs for waiting around, and I'll award XPs for the summary, too.

Thanks, guys!

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
Tethost and Ebermoir were posting as regularly as the DM was and I thought it sounded like we were getting new blood, one of them left already due to too many characters.

I can't remember when you left, but after leaving the sewers we return to Taren's (?) shop and got a pretty cold shoulder, and while leaving were ambushed
and Tethost got shot with a poinsoned arrow, from assassins up above.  I ran off and confronted one on the rooftop. I was a monk-type character with an invisible cloak or something of the sort.  I got a good hit in on him across the troat and he gave me a little pop in the chest.  We got Tethost's poison under control and headed back to the Necramancer's house via the tunnels.  I have gone up in level.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
I fear we've lost Tethost (he has not shown up in his other games, either).

So you are now back at the necromancer's home?

Capn_is talking to the new DM, and you should be up and running soon.

Maybe the new PCs can come in having been once employed by the necro., and since you have lost so many other characters in the party, you'll need their help.

Thanks.

So it looks like 3 PCs are still here.

We lost Tethost's player (he has not shown up in ANY of the games he plays in here for over a month), so it makes sense you three stalwarts are still here.

I'm glad of it, and Capn_Chord is working on filling in the new DM.

The region will start to roll in a little bit.

Until then, thanks for waiting, and I'll make sure your DM gives some nice birthday magic items out to you three.

What am I talking about?  Go check out the Happy Birthday RoA thread in RoA: OOC Fourm.

Re: Dragon Coast: OOC Forum
As DM Mike promised, Here I am!

I'm just dropping the quick hello before I finish catching up on everything that has happened.  It looks like I've got three PC's.  That's a nice comfortable amount to start with.  Hopefully we'll recruit some fresh meat in the next couple weeks.

My plan is to have this region up and running again by Monday morning (That's US Eastern Time) after which I'll be posting at least six days a week.

Here's a quick introduction of myself.

My name is Kelly and I live in Southern Indiana.  If you'd like you can call me Kelly, Inn Keeper or InK.  Whatever you're most comfortable with.  I work the graveyard shift as an innkeeper which leaves me a lot of time to keep things updated.  I'm 29 and have a B.A. in Religion and Semiotics.  I live with a cat, her name is PJ.

Feel free to introduce yourselves.  I'll be in and out through the weekend, getting things set up.  Ask as many questions as you want.  I'll do the best I can to answer them.


Have fun!

InK

And now I am ready to play!  A day earlier than I thought at that.  Here is what I need from you as players.  I need you to make a descriptive post in-game.  Give a description of yourself, you mood and some mannerisms.  Presume the Gregor wants you to tell him exactly what happened since you left.  I will post very late on Monday, or today if by chance everyone get's their post in.


This ball is officially rolling!

Another hero falls...
So, Ebermior has left our little group for that magical world we called real-life.  We'll presume that he decided working for a necromancer was against his ethics and he's had a change of heart.  The real kicker to this is that he was the groups cleric.  So for now, I can only say 'Don't get hurt!'.  If any of you are planning to multiclass to a cleric very soon let me know, otherwise I'm going to try to find a way to advert for a new one.

Hi everyone.  Another new addition to the group.  I look forward to RPing with you all.

Just to let you know, I'm based in the United Kingdom (north-west of London), so you may find I post very early or very late!

Vacation Dates
I am going to be on vacation starting this coming Saturday, December 11 until Sunday, December 26.  While I will have internet access, I don't plan to be spending a lot of time on Rpol.  You will still see posting from me during these two weeks, but it will be much slower than usual.  I'll try to think of something fun so you can keep earning your XP's while I'm away.

For those of you that celebrate the holidays, have a great time!

Re: Vacation Dates
Hi,

Man, I never realized DM Innkeeper ran this region, too.

E-mails to him have bounced back, so he is apparently having e-mail and internet problems at present.

I can not promise he will be back at all, so for now...

Until I can line up another DM to run this region, here's one possibility:

Any player wishing to move their current PC to another active game that is accepting players can do so with no cost of Day Units, XPs, etc.

The DM of the new region will have to work them into the established plot, so the player may have to wait a bit before action starts for them.

Hope this helps.

Re: Vacation Dates
We have lost Styvan due to RL issues.

How do you change to a different game?

Head over to RoA: OOC Forum and look in the "Space for PCs" thread to see which regions are accepting players.

If one strikes your fancy, tell the DM of that region (in a PM there in OOC) you are interested, have a PC already playing in a stalled region, and that I, head honchoroo said you could come on in free of Day Unit cost.

One possibility may be that I will condence this region with DM Ink's other region, bringing THOSE PCs to THIS region, since this one is longer-running and more established story-wise.

Keep watching for updates, though.

50 XPs for those staying on here, too!

Re: Vacation Dates
I have a new DM who may be taking the region over.

He's going to read through what has been posted, get a feel for the region and its PCs, and take it from there if he can manage.

In the meantime, please, someone, post a synopsis of your mission's goals (besides just "finding the missing bodyguard Al-Aiir") and what has happened so far.

That will help him get up to speed.  XPs will be given for the effort.

Thanks!

Re: Vacation Dates
Folks, if I can't get a synopsis of what has gone on in the region from you, there's no way I or another DM can come in and run things.

If someone does not provide one by Sunday 1/23 we'll have to either shut down the region or re-start the place with a new DM and potentially a mix of new and old PCs.

No XPs will be lost to those PCs who have been running here already, but if you HAVE been running here already, why no help with the synopsis?

Thanks.

Re: Vacation Dates
We were hired by Gregor to go find an old necromancer, Hamish, and a lady from Gregor's past who lived on the cliffs.  Hamish had made the ring we found on the floating dwarf in the sewers.  When we arrived the cottage was on fire and we killed a cult member that seemed to be responsible.  Returning with what information we could gather from Hamish we went back to Gregor who informed us of the cult.

""But yes, you're right, it is time for the cryptic shroud to lift.  You're too deep now to distance yourself in any case.  The cult that has been giving us so much trouble for the last several days call themselves K'kikrass'tch H'tch Ka'siss'raa."  The strange words are obviously draconic but someting about words make the syllables take on a life of thier own.  "The translation is 'Hand of the Serpent Lord'".  They're fairly new to the city and none of my contacts know much about them.  Hells, we don't even know who they worship!  We do know that they believe in mutilating themselves to take on a more draconic appearance.  This is likely to both erase their old identity as well as an initiation rite.  They hold anyone who is not in thier society in distane and not worthy of thier own will.  They've managed to worm thier way into some very powerful circles in this city.  It's impossible to know the extent of thier influence"

Worried about necklaces that Hamish had made, Gregor offered us another job.
""The largest stockpile of these nasty things are kept by an old enemy of mine.  He's a Sembian who has used to be a harbormaster for Grey Moon and goes by the name of Vorpatric.  He holds them in a well kept fortress here on the coast.  Your job will be straight-forward.  Get in there, take every necklace in the place before the cult manages it, and bring them back to me.  I'll pay you one-hundred gold pieces for each necklace you bring back.  Sound good?"

We agreed on the price of the job."By immediately jumping to negotiations of price you show your eagerness to take the mission.  That means all were discussing now is the pacification of greed.  I will raise my offer to 130 gold pieces per intact necklace."

OOC:  For the sake of speed, let's presume that you settle on 150gp per necklace and move on."

He then filled us in with a little more info: "Now, there is another matter which you may or may not take an interest in.  It is a well known fact that Bella Vorpatric and I share little love.  We have wronged each other enough times to fuel ten rivalries.  Still, we both live.  If, at the end of your little 'adventure' the old Harbor Master happens to die by your hand, I am certain that a rather pricy bag of jewels could find their way into your coffers."

"As far as a map of the fortress, no such thing exits.  The man is a talented conjurer and his gross wife is not without her own arcane talents.  They have been able to keep thier secrets well.  I am among a fortunate few who know where the fortress-port exists.  It actually floats on barges along the shoreline east of the city on a regular rotation.  I know that once every Tenday, it appears about a mile off an old pirates cove called Redskull Bluff.  I do believe Mr. Gardock knows where to find that.  It should appear there in three evenings from now."

Answering some questions, he gave us a time limit: "Lia Essmoor typed:
Lia did have a question.  "Do you know what we may encounter inside the fortress?"


"Abberations most likely.  That's the sort of thing a conjurer would prefer.  You know, beasts and such made of little more than teeth and claws?  Arcane abilities that can boarder on the non-sensical.  That's the sort of thing I'd suggest you be ready for.  There arn't so many men and women who are willing to work alongside a rabble like that, so you shouldn't find many.  Beware those you do find though, for they are likely desperate men.  Or they could be slaves."  This last bit he says with a remarkable flippancy.

"Very good then.  If you're successful, then meet me back here in five days.  Otherwise, I would not recommend you return."  Though his face and voice remain friendly, it is not difficult to understand his true meaning."

Then we all left to equip ourselves but most ended up an inn and were planning how to get to where we needed to go.   That leaves us were we are now.

I've  posted for new players/PCs to enter this region, so once DM Magius gets a party again, he'll get the adventure rolling.

It will be his call whether to re-boot things (in which case those PCs who ARE still here retain all items and XPs they gained in this adventure and get 10 extra day units) or pick up from where DM Innkeeper left off.

Yes, support has been great so far, and I hope that results in a good mix of players and PCs for the region.

Next up, Fido needs PCs over in Calimshan, so maybe I better go rescue that region.

Post in OOC to keep yourselves busy. I'm going to gather up the adventure and try and get these rusted wheels a' turning.

Um well, maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea to start with a brief intro? So I'll just begin: "Catarina is the name, trickery and sorcery be my game." the pretty half-elven lass says as she bows lightly, shaking her long red hair back while stroking the tiger-striped cat on her arm. "I hail from Aglarond but my curiosity brought me here."

No need to read the previous Dragon Coast posts. If I'll follow the previous storyline- which I'm not sure about- I'll start it from the beginning of the adventure, not from the middle and make you read a few good pages of posts.

Alright. By ROA tradition, I'm going to set three possible adventures on a separate thread, which I'll name "adventure ideas". I'll try and make a blend of role-playing, combat and puzzle solving, again by ROA tradition. If you prefer, I could just take one and start quickly, since this has stalled long enough already. Anyway, I'll post them and post either your prefrence or if you just want me to pick one and start.

Re: Vacation
So lets carry this on in OOC.

We seem to have 3 trains of thought on the subject.

1) We investigate the victim's murder further, find out why he was targeted and work out something after that.
2) We follow the assassin, hoping the pursuer won't be caught and see what we can learn from that.
3) We confront the assassin and either a) kill him or b) interrogate him.

Anything I've missed?

Re: Vacation
No I believe thats it. I am of a mind to go with option three. Find the bastard No I believe that’s it. I am of a mind to go with option three. Find the bastard and beat the crap out of him until he talks.

But since my AL is CG I think option two might be easiest. We can simply have a stealthy character follow him and we follow that character.

What say ye?

I am still here, yes, and I'm trying to think of a way to push you PCs past this bump, but I don't want to make things more chaotic. A vote in the OOC is probably the best way, I agree with that.

I won't abandon a game that quickly, though I can't blame anyone for thinking I have.

I'm sorry to announce that, for the summer vacation, I'm taking a week-and-a-half-long trip to the US starting tomorrow, where I probably won't have access to the internet (though there is a small chance I will). So the adventure won't progress until I return. After I come back I'll try and put this campaign back in high gear with my exams having ended and I'll have much more free time.

Re: The assassin
My character would never suggest it herself but what if we knock him out and throw him in the sea? Unless there is someone watching at this very moment noone could know it was us. He's been seen wandering the streets drunk already. Only a high level cleric would be able to find out it was us who did it and then they'd have to find the body first.
If he survives we'd already have the guild on our backs if we got rid of him using another method.

Re: The assassin
Um, Pumilia wasn't there at the time, but weren't you guys charged with finding this guy's motives and employer? The guard wanted you to find out who was really behind the murders. Plus, Pumilia isn't bloodthirsty, at least, not right now, justice is more then just blades through flesh.

It's that whole lawful good thing.

Re: The assassin
My point is. I want to lessen the threat to the party. If what Lyral says is true the guild will come after us. We need the element of surprise on our side if the captain asks us to investigate further and we certainly don't need a large group of assassins on our case.

Re: The assassin
Hi all,

DM Magius sent me a message saying he will soon have to drop this region as a DM.  I am not sure when this will occur, but he has gotten very busy in real life of late, so he may not be able to get on as frequently as in the past.

I can try to take over Dragon Coast (again) or find a new DM for it, but the latter option will take some time.

And if I take over as DM, my posts will not be very frequent as well, twice a week, tops.

(Running Waterdeep, Sword Coast/Amn, and Savage Species regions in RoA and my normal workload will become intense at the end of August as the new semester of teaching starts.)

So I'll be happy to DM in Magius' place, but perhaps a new DM who can devote more time and attention to the region would be better.

Just wanted to give you the heads-up.

Thanks, and hang in there!

Re: The assassin
I seem to have that effect with Pumilia as well. Heck, I've got a newer character that's already completed one adventure, and is now on her second, in the same region. I'd love to find a place were Pumilia can stay active, or at least, find a GM that can make this place stay active.

Re: The assassin
Yeah, I hear ya both.

One of the inherent problems with on-line gaming (and RoA, by extension)is DMs come on ready and able to devote time and attention to the game, but later their life throws them curves they did not expect and the game stalls or stops.

DM Magius was good enough to give us warning and not just dump the region and leave suddenly.

So we have time to get a replacement and are not forced into a sudden need to fill the hole.

(And I may already have a new DM in line, so hang tight!)

Wow I was hoping for more but... oh well. I guess I'll just have to round up a player or two and get this started. I know how long you two have been trying to play those characters.

Re: The assassin
Ok good that’s four, I have no problems moving forward with four. We can assume the others, like Masaio, lost their stomach for it when they heard who the assassin works for.

Listen I need another day or two before I move on but you guys can post in character if you like, I will be moving on from where DM Magius left off, I won't be starting over so if you wanted to post something IC you can go right ahead.

I don't care who GM's the region, I just hope that when it starts it gets moving a reasonable pace. I have been through at least five GM's so far and haven't really got anywhere with a storyline. I don't want to relocate just yet, but would love to play an active D&D game.

DM DarkChylde
Hi all,

DM DarkChylde, who runs the Rashemen, Silver Marches, and Dragon Coast regions for us in RoA was suddenly stripped of internet use around the 24th of September.

We first got word from him this week about his situation, and he's very sorry he had no way to contact anyone here -- his players or his fellow DMs.

When he can get regular internet use, he'll be back DMing on RoA.

For now, we'll try to get DMs to fill in for his regions.

We'll keep you posted on his status as news comes to us.

Thanks!

===================================

Players are allowed to join into any regions currently accepting PCs with NO cost of Day Units, loss of XPs, items, etc.  Just take your PC sheet with you when you request to join another regions.

However, if you decide to sit things out a bit and wait for either DM DarkChylde to come back to the game or for us to find someone to take the region over until he can come back, you'll get 75 XPs per week of waiting.

So if you decide to stay here, you'll get 225 XPs for the three weeks you've already waited so far.

If you move on now, you don't get those XPs.

And if you move on in a week or so, you'll have them, plus another 75.

But we hope to have someone take over the region by then.


======================================================================

ROLLCALL! Who is still here?  Who plans to move on?

If a player does not reply by 10/19, it will be assumed they are no longer with this region.

Thanks again, all!

I'm afraid there are a few of us who are VERY new and can't provide much of a recap. For instance you can see my number of posts is less than 15. And, no, that's not because I ignore this game but because not much has happened since I started. I started with a zombie attack in the sewers that hasn't finished yet...and that's about it.

Re: DM DarkChylde
Well, I've been in region for, well, about half the adventure, maybe a little longer, but not much, probably shorter then that.

What Pumilia Knows (I know more, but...) is that she overheard a guy (Let's call him ASS), who was bragging about killing a man. Pumilia, being a Paladin, was outraged, but being way out of her element, had no way to fix it, so she swtiched bars, lesser evil and all. Then, she overhears the group members talking about ASS and his killings, so she inserts herself into the mix, because, hey, maybe they can help her find and met justice on ASS. So, after inserting herself, she gets them to go with her to find the man, and, lo and behold, it seemed ASS followed her to this bar, so, Pumilia runs up to him, and then after him, banging him along the way with he side of her axe.

With help from her new friends, they capture, and then briefly interrogate ASS, but they need a safe ans secrure place to do so, like the sewers! So, with ASS in tow, the group ventured down into the sewers, and found a little secure room to hide ASS in, along with a guard (one of the PCs). Then, just as Pumila and the gang are about to go above ground to root out some corruption, they overhear a zombie attack, and go charging into the fray (well, at least Pumilia does, with her handaxe, a weapon gifted to her by dwarves she saved back in the underdark, that works wonders against undead).

OK, going to throw out a bit of an Executive decision here, we are still in the sewers but those sewers will be under Westgate. All sewers look alike anyway. So anything that mentioned Teziir please substitute westgate. I was, way back when, one of the DM's of the Dragon Coast region so I'll be taking the group along some of the things that I had started and will be trying not to mess up Dark Chylde's story too badly.

Re: DM DarkChylde
Wanted to throw out some Kudos to Pumilia. I was a player in the Underdark Adventure to save Thunderdelve. Due to RL concerns I wasn't able to continue very far after I destroyed the entrance to the keep with a horn of blasting. All they told me was that the horn would open the door :) Its that kind of interaction that makes ROA cool. You can travel to the different regions and pass on the tales of your exploits. As you can see Drake already has seen many things in this region. I hope to give you all many great stories to pass on.

I'm at work now and have to finish up some things before I can work on the game, but I will have and in game post up this afternoon. I look forward to adventuring with you all.

Re: DM DarkChylde
DM Capn_Chord:
OK, going to throw out a bit of an Executive decision here, we are still in the sewers but those sewers will be under Westgate. All sewers look alike anyway. So anything that mentioned Teziir please substitute westgate. I was, way back when, one of the DM's of the Dragon Coast region so I'll be taking the group along some of the things that I had started and will be trying not to mess up Dark Chylde's story too badly.


Since I'm very new and most of the info DM DarkChylde sent to me was background regarding Teziir, will I need to know anything about the city of Westgate instead? I understand that the Westgate City Watch could have easily hired me (us) for the same purpose "to go muck around in the sewers" but what about other information? (Who is in charge of the city? What kind of trade does it have? Etc?) Will that information be important to us?

Re: DM DarkChylde
Actually anything that happened in Teziir could have happened in Westgate. It is just larger and seedier. Unexplained deaths run rampant and there are more guilds and organizations than you can shake a stick at. I will post some info about Westgate a bit later, but for now there is nothing significant other than some of you were hired by the watch to check out the sewers and some of you were dragging a prisoner down here to hold him captive.

Re: DM DarkChylde
There seems to be some small confusion amongst the groups as to why they are in the sewer. Both groups are here on behalf of the city. The original Dragon Coast group is there to take care of a problem for the city watch and just ended up in the sewers. The new group was sent by the watch, specifically to check on a group of theives activities in the sewers. I hope that clears things up for those who were wondering.

Notice, due to the very unpolite ganking of my internet access at work, I am very limited in the time that I have to post now. I will be able to post 3 to 4 times per week. If it falls to anything below this I will have to hand off to another DM. I will not however be disappearing and the hand off would not mean any down time. You've all sat around waiting on us enough. Just wanted you to be aware of the situation.

Guys, I just don't know what to say.

DM DarkChylde is back, so maybe he will pick up the region.

You have the worst track record for keeping a DM followed by one of RoA's oldest regions, the Silver Marches.

And the Dragon Coast as so many cool cities and sites to plan adventures around.

If there were two of me, I'd run it.

Re: DM DarkChylde
Right now DarkChylde only has time to play here and there, not DM for us.

There is a new region open called Shaar/The Great Rift.  The DM is gung-ho and has things set up.  Gaming in the region will begin right after the new year, but you can get into the tavern and RP there.

In effect, you'd keep all items and XPs gained in this region, but just start fresh there.

I am afraid we'll be closing down Dragon Coast for now.

I'm trying to get more dedicated DMs on board, but it's rough.

Thanks for your patience.

Not to get anyone's hopes up, and not to make a false promise, but we may have a new RoA DM coming in to take over the region.

No word yet on details, but keep an eye open.

But please post if you are still here and still interested in gaming in this region under the new DM (who we plan to chain down here with his keyboard so he'll stay a long, long, loonnnng time!).

50 XPs if you post, one way or the other.  We have to get a headcount.

Thanks!

4 here.

That's the WotC recommended party size (though in RoA we like to run with 6 or so per region), so if that is enough for the new DM to go with, there should be little to no delay in getting things going.

He/she/it may want to get some more players/PCs in, though.

Hang tight, and the new DM should post shortly.

Thanks, all!!

Drumroll Please!
Well I'm here, ready to insight terror, and whatnot. Well if you haven't understood it yet I'm going to be the new DM in charge of this region. So, in order to do my job I need to know a few things: Firstly I want to know where, and what your characters were doing last time you played? Secondly I'd like to know what has happened so far to your characters so far? Finally I'd like to know how many people have quit during your DM's absence?
Naturally I'm going to reward the people who help me out with EXP, just to get answers faster.

Re: Drumroll Please!
I've been here the longest, but I don't see a huge point in filling in my experiences, as the people I have been with have changed so many times, much of it is useless.

Currently we were on a mission to find a guild that hired an assassin that we captured and have tied up.

But I have been involved with fire-breathing freaks, invisible monks/assassins and necromancers with fast moving ghouls in the past, but much if not all of that story line has been left behind.

With the small amount of people currently left, If we would just begin and end one story-line I would be extremely happy.

Cade Maldron your profile seems to be slightly lacking in the character sheet department, so unless I'm missing something I'd like you to post it here.

Well, that seems to be about it, so be ready for an ARP thread sometime in the near future.

Hey, good luck, DM SS.

What kind of test?  (Not rabies, let's hope!)

I'm gearing up for the new semester and have decided to give MORE exams in my classes, but each one will count for less.

I used to give a mid-term and a final, but if you flunked one, that meant your grade would be no more than a "B" in the class.  That's just too much pressure, so I've gotten warmer and fuzzier this semester.

-------------------------

Again, good luck.

In case anybody is confused, your supposed to go to the thread called "Dragon Coast Region - ARP", read it, and PM me with the Adventures you would prefer. You may say that this is obvious, but a few of you have logged on without voting. Another thing, don't let the fact that your characters only know about one of the adventures affect your choice. That was only to add a bit more realism, those adventures will become apparent fairly quickly. Kthxbye.

From the 7th of march to at least the 11th, maybe the 14th there will be no posting from me.  I will be visiting Irfan and Eddy as Irfan is graduating and I have not hung out with my friends in almost 3 years.  Not since my oldest was 2 months old.  He is now going to be 3 in may.  That gives you an idea.  Plus both Trav and Gab will get to see my youngest that just turned one recently.  So I hope we all have fun and play some cool games.  These guys are my best friends in the world so hanging with them for a week is going to rock for me.  I ask the Gm to NPC me if there is something important to be done.  Thank you.

Re: A fresh start
Been nine days since the last post, are we just going to end this thing or should we see about taking our characters and trying to join another region?  I dont mean to be a sour puss but this is extreamly slow with no options to go do something else.  Secretskull if you dont think you can do this or that its not going in the direction you wish maybe you should see if there is another that would take it over.  Not being disrespectful, and I understand personal stuff comes up, but the rate this game is posting is dreadful.  I dont know about anyone else but this caught my attention early and then almost as fast just eh, dropped.  I am here if you wish me to stay, but let us players know the rate for posting you require and that way no one gets ahead of themselves or get behind and that way you can weed out the ones who wish to stay or go...this is just a suggestion.  So please dont take offence.

If the DM doesn't show up, I'll be gald to run interference for you all for a bit, if you want. That of course would be up to you, and if he comes back, I will gladly step back. Again, the choice is up to you.

Now i am no expert from comics, but if i remember correctly thats an older image right after the joker was tossed into a lake or the waters near the docks in gotham.  I may be totally wrong, but the way its drawn looks like he is wet and not melting.

Yeppers.

It comes from one of my favorite comics called The Killing Joke that tells the Joker's origin.

That's just after he rises up out of polluted water...polluted by acids and chemicals.  The same chemicals and acids that warped his appearance, and some would say his mind, too.

Re: A fresh start
on the subject of the waters that formed Joker, you do know that the original two-face origin comes from the same time the joker fell into the liquids.  The liquids indeed do warp the minds and appearances of both the villians.  Now it makes you wonder why the joker or two-face didnt make or grab more of the stuff to psychodelic army to wipe out the bat.

Re: A fresh start
You're right.

There was an old issue of Detective Comics from 1938 or '39 where Batman fought this mad scientist who created huge zombie-like monsters with a serum.  That was creepy.

And, of course, over at Marvel in the 1960's almost EVERYTHING was tied-in with radiation of one sort or another.

I never had that many comics, just a couple of Supermans & a Green Lantern that a friend gave me. I once bought a Spiderman too.

I liked comics, but I never collected them.

2) Jump ship. Depending on the time it takes for the region to get a new DM, DM Mike may let you move regions without expending any Day Units.

if we stick around do we get anything for our patience to start out with?  Not that I care mind you.  But what ever DM takes over or even one of the GM's here I will need to talk to them in regards to getting some XP added to my sheet since secretskull never did that for me.  I hope that the game comes out to be well worth the wait, lol, it sure has taken long enought to get even remotely started.  Should we just start over in case the few that are here want to play or just try to stay with where ever skull was going for?

Re: I'm not dead!
I'd advise this region get a total re-start with a new DM.

I see no new DMs on the horizon, at present.  If a DM wants to take over, great.  But most of us are stretched pretty thin as is.

However, if any comes forward and wants the region, great!

If players want to move their PCs to new regions, it will cost them NO day units to do so.

I have no real way to tell what XPs you are owed short of going back and reading thread upon thread.

Not gonna happen.

So here's what I'll do for ya:

All PCs still here get 1,000 XPs and any ONE of these magic items:

Potion of Cure Moderate Wounds

Potion of Clairvoyance

Potion of Clairaudience

Oil of Sharpness

(All of these are "created" at 8th level for purpose of duration, etc.)

Scroll of Web, Flaming Sphere, and Bull's Strength

Scroll of Aid, Cure Light Wounds, and Bless

Wand of Magic Missle (6 charges)

Ring of Protection, +1

Shield (any size) +1

Dagger +1

Re: I'm not dead!
Okay, here's the deal:

Either I or a new DM to RoA (but an experienced player here) will be taking over the region.

I can not speak for this new DM, but if I take over the region, I will probably opt to (yet again) re-set the adventure.  It is just a lot easier for me to do that sometimes, and I'm running so many other regions...

Here's what will help:

1.) ALL players sticking with the region, post a "yep" to let us know you're here.

25 XPs for that post.

2.) If someone wants to post a synopsis of what went on, what is going on, and what the eventual goal of the present adventure seemed to be, I may be able to run with that.  No promises.

For posts that are a big help in this area, I can give up to 200 XPs.

Thanks, all!

Looks like we'll be up and running soon!

Re: I'm not dead!...wait, yes I am!
I'm sticking around. This dejemma won't complete itself y'know and the Dragon Coast is a perfect place for a character like myself to adventure.

Not a lot really happened. We're in an inn, there is a lot of tension but not much else going on. Four of us already know each other (Myself, Drake, Cade & Lorne).

Bethany started off by loudly offering her adventuring services to anyone in the bar. That set everyone on edge except for a bunch of Dwarves that just laughed at her. Noone offered her a job but she drew everyone's attention. Several people came in and the inn's bouncer started acting threateningly. There was a huge amount of tension in the room, as if a bar fight was just about to start.

I noticed a shady guy draw a knife and run upstairs for some reason so I followed him. He is strange because I seem to be the only one in the Inn who can see him.

It looks like I will be coming in to DM here (again!) and I'll opt to start over.

I mean, it seems like little plot threads were started, but I don't know that I would want to pick them up, nor do I think I would do them justice.

So...

I plan to start an adventure over the weekend.

We can skip the ARPs (if that's okay with you all) and get into an adventure post-haste.  It will feature all three key elements of an adventure - combat, roleplaying, and investigation/problem-solving.

We'll start at Taverna Generica and move out from there.  The party has already formed, you're looking for work, and you set off for adventure together.

Sound good?

Re: I'm not dead!...wait, yes I am!
Well, the region is up and running (so long as RPoL does not crap out on us, that is!).

I'll be DMing the region.

Post in the Taverns thread (the Crying Lady).

The party members know each other, so in the first post you make there, introduce your PC, what the group would know about your PC, and then RP a bit.

You have travelled together, so now each other pretty well.

The first adventure we will play out is introduced in the taverns thread.

Once you're all there and have posted, we'll move along to the adventure proper.

-----------------------------------

You will see an "active PCs" thread for the region.

Please post a description of your PC (race, gender, age, etc.) and again, information the others in the party would know about the PC.

You'll get 30 XPs for that, once done.

Thanks!

Otherwise, no news is good news, so once you have the bio lines, portrait, and descriptions up, post the 75 XPs on your PC sheets.

And you get 50 for the tale you told to Radcliffe, Bethany.  Post that on your sheet, too.

Plot
Mike,
    Any adventure plot is better than none, plus I would not be critical of the DM's plot. Plots, on the surface, do not always translate to what you think it might.  It's the execution by the DM and players that make the adventure.

Basically, I am saying, you are in charge, lead us where you will.

Re: Plot
If Lorne and Cade can post by Tuesday, we'll keep them in the region.

If not, I will advertise for one more player/PC to join in.

We don't need to await the new PC or Lorne/Cade to post to move along.  New PCs can join at any point in the adventure.

Just a heads up.

Re: Plot
Going to move on without Lorne and Cade.

I want one more PC to fill out the ranks.

But as I said, this will not slow down the game.

Once the $#!% hits the fan, a new PC can hop in at any time.

And said $#!% is about to hit...

Hiya everybody. I'm the new PC that DM Mike needed to round out the party. I feel privileged to be able to play in one of his games. I have no doubt that it's going to be a very interesting game.

Re: Hello
Wow. I can't believe you remember me Denira. I didn't think I was around long enough the first time to make any kind of impression.

Then the Dragon Coast game fell apart. I got involved in some other games outside of RoA. Then I got too busy to be able to contribute to anything else so when the Dragon Coast started up again I didn't feel like I could be an effective player so I declined to start again. Well recently all that changed and I saw that there is was an open spot here...so here I am.

If that didn't make any sense don't worry about it. It's not important.

Re: Pagan Festival
It used to be a ten day festival that celebrated the summer solstice, the sea & a fertility symbol called Penglaz (a horses head covered in ribbons & a wreath). It involved dancing & fire but I don't know much more than that. When Christianity came to the region they turned it into the 'Feast of Saint John'. A few years ago the locals resurrected the tradition, calling it 'Golowan' but now it is nothing more than a community arts festival.

There wasn't much to do there but there was plenty to see. Several friends of mine were in a marching band during a parade so I watched that. Some school children made huge papier-mache sculptures of the Witch King of Angmar & Smaug from LoTR and some dudes made full-sized, remote-controlled Daleks which I was very impressed with.

Overall it was pretty cool. I got to talk to some Americans from Nevada Union High School.

Why'd you ask?

The idea of a "Pagan" festival caught my attention and I wanted to know what you meant. I'm an American so I had no idea what you might be talking about. For all I know you might have spent the weekend in the woods dancing under the moon and summoning spirits.  :D

Re: Pagan Festival
There's pagan festivals all over in the part of England I live in. We were the only part of the country not invaded & conquered by Romans so we didn't get Christianity shoved down our throats, it was just introduced to those who were willing. That allowed us a certain amount of individuality and has led to a lot of pagan traditions being kept alive. I've actually got a game running on RPOL that puts it all in a D&D perspective. A kind of ancient social study but with the staples of D&D thrown in for fun.

That's a heck of a price range!

Good luck, and when you can make it back, let us know.

For now, we will have Bethany stay behind to help those who need (though it does not seem in her nature to do that - it is an easy out, though).

Once you can make it back, she can join in with the group, if the adventure is not done by then.

Re: Leave of Absence....
<laughing with Elodeir>

Denira, there's a trick that I like to use whenever my character is conflicted: WWMDD – What Would My Deity Do? No, I'm not a particularly religious person. However the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting states specifically that many people (adventurers or not) choose a patron deity who is most like what they would like to be themselves. If you consider your deity to be a sort of divinely perfect version of yourself, then you need only imagine what your deity would do in the conflicting case and follow suit.

If that doesn't work, try this: Describe your character's most admirable personality trait with ONE word. (Preferably not "good" or "evil".) Smart. Just. Quick. Thoughtful. Kind. Whatever. What action would best demonstrate the personality trait?

I am confidant one of those two ideas will help.

Re: Leave of Absence....
Right now the wagon and rider seem to both be having trouble.

If that wagon gets out of the graveyard, you'll have to track it and the body it contains down, so preventing it from leaving would be top priority.

Then again, with all the people running this way and that - there are over 200 of them crammed into an acre or so of space, with lots of gravestones and such in their way - it will be hard to move and attack, cast spells, etc.

The job I DO have takes me away from the computer too often, and looking for another job is taking me even MORE away from RPoL and RoA.

I have Friday off, so it looks good for gaming then.

Training...

3+ hours on the road, 6+ hours at work...

Learning new (non D&D) rules and regulations...

Mike's head hurts.

I will post this weekend, at least once during the week, then next weekend.

On or around Sept. 1 training is done, the diapers are off, and I will have more time for RoA.

I started a new job last week, and training was very time and travel-intensive.  So far this week I've put in over 50 hours and still have to get through today!  (Thank God for overtime pay!!)

Sorry for the delay this week, but things will pick up again later today!

Did I post those XPs?

Re: Hooray
Sorry to get things going wrong, all.

I find I can only get on twice, maybe three times a week with my new job, so my posts have got to move things ahead more than they did in the past.

In effect, it seems all paths lead to the slaughterhouse/rending plant owned by a band of brothers known as the Sharks.  You doubt "Shark" is their real last name, but that is what everyone calls them.

Apparently Constance Ilithane, the necromancer you're investigating, has some sort of connection to one of the Shark brothers.

You can not get to Constance (at this point), but you can probably get to the Shark man/men here at the slaughterhouse.

Wow Mike. I wish I was that talented. The one time I tried to be DM (different FR game in RPoL, not associated with RoA) the game started and stopped and stuttered and started and stopped again. It was bad. I'd make a great DM-Assistant but I'm no good at running things myself.

It hardly seems fair that you have to keep up with so much at once. Kudos to you for doing the great job you do. Do you need DM-Assistant?

What now?
DM Mike:
The front door of the rendering house opens and a handsome and slender man with bright blue eyes and long blonde hair comes out, wrapping an expensive-looking red cape about him.  He sees you and bows.
Well met.  Are you awaiting an order or simply lost down here in the docks?


Okay everybody, what do we do now? I’m thinking we need some excuse to be down at the docks, possibly “we want to place an order but we want to see your operation before we put in our order”. That will hopefully get us a tour of the place and maybe one of us can step away from the tour to poke around.

OR we could just ask to talk to Durken Shark and ask what he was doing with Constance Ilithrane. Maybe we can “offer our services” to find out what his business is.

OR we could threaten the handsome slender man and force him to answer our questions.

I don’t want to just plow ahead and blurt out the first thing that comes to mind without everyone’s input. Whatever we do we should find out who he is at least.

I volunteer to be somebody's secretary or assistant or something. Who wants to be the boss that wants to place the order and get a tour?

Who wants to use one of the other ideas? Does anybody want to just walk away instead?

Like I said, I'm happy to go right in and snoop around but it wouldn't be fair to everyone else if I went alone. At least it wouldn't be fair unless everyone says they don't want to go in. And then it could be dangerous for me.

A Great Idea
DM Mike:
OOC: Oh boy, a fantasy poker game!

Oh boy is right! Mike I could almost kiss you! This should be a lot of fun.

Just so I can be sure I have the whole picture, who's still in this game? Drake and Elodeir have posted recently. Did anybody quit?

I've got a lot of ideas for how I am going to react to this situation but part of it depends on who is still with Amylarn in the tavern.


Later...
I saw Drake posted so he's still here. Anybody else?

Aren't we supposed to keep out RPing in our orininal card post.  I just want to make sure. I thought that we kept our responses in a single post, editing it when needed.

If not I will post as normal. It is hard to keep track of what is going on conversation-wise.

Little snippets of RPing are fine, since that goes on at the table to rattle players here and there.

But anything more than a line or so should go in the game thread.

Yes, edit posts as need be, but alert us to edits by putting in something like Edit: 12/1 so we know it was changed and when.

DM Mike, I know it would be more work for you, but would you mind doing part of the edits for us? Take the posts and comments from the Dragons High thread that I and Elodeir and others made and move them to the Adventure thread? Obviously we could try this but we would almost certainly get them out of order or something. Plus that would give you the opportunity to show us what you meant for the poker thread to look like.

Durken Shark (NPC):
With a slight shrug and a wide smile on his handsome face, Durken flips a gold coin onto the table's center.

Hang on, let me be sure I follow this.
Ardo bet 1gp.
I put in 1gp to meet his bet and then raised 1gp so the total bet is 2gp.
Durken puts in 1gp.

Is he trying to cheat or did he just not notice that I raised?

Not sure why the game has stalled, since a player has to act.

Gosh Mike, I'm sorry I said, "Hey it's okay" and "we'll get over it". I assumed that when you took responsibility for the slow down that there was something going on that needed your response in game, possibly Shaeria was waiting on a PM from you or something.

Re: Slowing down the game
The card game is taking too long, since I can not get on and post too often.

It would be worlds of fun to do this in real time, but PbP and my slowness to post make it a grind to the game, so...

Once all players in the card game have gotten their new cards from Krissa, last bets are placed and cards are revealed after those bets.

We should get done by the new year that way.

SHEESH!

Sorry this went so slow, folks.

Re: Slowing down the game
Oh well. It was a really good idea Mike. Lots and lots of potential for interesting RPing on multiple levels; RPing the actual card game, RPing bluffs and cheating or trying to catch people bluffing or cheating, RPing the talk at the table and seeing both PC and NPC emotions swing as hands are won and lost. I even had this idea that maybe we could make bets for information instead of cash.

And I don't think you need to take all the blame for slowness. I think we've all been guilty of slow replies lately.

So anyway, the card game is a great idea. Try it again sometime when you aren't DMing 42 games at the same time.

I'll give NWN the heave-ho for at least the week, and get posting going again.

Sorry for the delay, and to try to make up for it, once I post I will give a nice bonus for you all for waiting.

Sorry, and look for a post in-game soon.

Re: Slowing down the game
Well, it's been a week without Neverwinter Nights, but also a week without much RPoL or RoA time...

Work, work on the car, family time, shopping...

Look, I hate like Hell to do this, but we're going to end the card game.  Maybe I can think of another way to pull something like that off later in a game, but for now, it will move things along much better if we cut the game short, then move on to the adventure at-hand.

The card game was more or less meant to do a few different things:

1.) Allow for a new style of game play (a slower opost-by-post method of game play, it seems, which I can not really do much with since my posting times are so infrequent now)

2.) Allow for some fun RPing (I hope to get some good RPing in the "normal" game posts, though)

3.) Let you win (or lose) some money

4.) Get some vital clues to the adventure at-hand.

===========================

So here is what happens out-of-game.

Look for in-game results in the game thread.

You each get 150 XPs for the game, RPing/posting and waiting.  (I will add these to the XPs thread.

You play a few hands.  The only person to lose their pots entirely is Ardo, and we will show the results of that in the game thread.

The rest of you come out pretty evenly.  No bit losses, no big gains to the money situation.

Ardo, Krissa, and Durken exchange some meaningful taunts and spiteful comments that illuminate things a bit, and we'll see those in the game thread.

Again, I am VERY sorry this experiment did not work out as I wanted it to.  If I could get on almost every day like I used to at my old job, it would have worked and been fun.

I used to teach, and in my office I could pop online several times a day, post, and that was it.  I could do all my regions in RoA easily that way.  Now that I get online once or twice a week, it is harder to keep games going well.

But I am going to do all I can to keep our region going strong!!  You all deserve that!

Moving things along...or not

DM Mike, when you say you're going to move things along you don't kid around! That's a lot to consider all at once. <puts on thinking cap>


I doubt this will be a popular idea but I want to put it out for discussion. Would the players in this region be better served by putting the whole game on Pause for awhile and wait for a less-overworked DM to become available? I have heard that a few DMs have recently had to vacate their positions and I'm sure that isn't making your job any easier Mike.

In this region I think we only have 3 active players. I know I have other characters to play and I get the impression that the other players might as well. I personally choose to wait patiently for a quality game rather than pressing ahead stubbornly while our DM does his best to provide for 38 games at the same time. Mike, in all honesty, I know you're doing the best you can but there's nobody in the world who could manage what you're attempting unless this was their full time job...and maybe not even then. I think we should cut you some slack by letting you out of this particular region.

Who has an opinion about this?

I can wait, as I have been done since I joined originally (only original member left).  No activity doesn't strain my time, so it is no problem just to check in from time to time to see if we can up an go.

I'm new, but if we're going to wait, I'd really rather wait for Mike.  He's the main reason why I wanted to join this game, he's one of my very favorite DMs.  If everybody, Mike included, were to decide otherwise then I would be okay, however.

Aw, and here I thought getting to play with a handsome, half-elven sorcerer was the main draw?  ;-)


Anyway, I'm out of town this week for a film festival, so I'm not able to post very often right now.  Just wanted to let you know that I'm for Mike staying if he feels he can/should, but if he decides it's for the best for him to quit running this region, I understand based on his situation, and I hope for all the best for him in the future.

Re: Moving things along...or not
I may have created more controversy than I meant to when I brought up this topic for discussion. As far as I know DM Mike has not quit this region. I just noticed how overwhelmed he was and thought we should talk about the possibility of a whole new and less overworked DM. Our game has not changed in any way yet. It’s still going...but still going just as slow as ever. In fact DM Mike put out a game update the other day which no one has responded to yet. If you all want to continue as we have done in the past I assume DM Mike will be okay with it. This whole topic of conversation was my idea, not his.

Re: Moving things along...or not
I enjoyed the game and never minded the slow pace.  To me it made it so i could think out my moves (when i was playing activly) and not make stupid mistakes.  Also I thought the writing was better and more thought out as compared to some other games I am where the GM wants roleplaying but wants it at a snap of a finger and the style, and dramatics drop the more people post.

Uhm. . .  what about the new PC in the region, Shaeria?  She joined in when the card game started, but when it ended, we didn't really get her into the group, did we?  Anyone got an idea of how to make this happen?


If nobody has any other ideas, I'm fine with "the handsome sorcerer brings the elven maiden along as his date for the rest of the mission," you know.  Anything to help the group.  ;-)

Re: Moving things along...or not
We may need some more input from Shaeria about this, but maybe she was sent by Harann (who doesn't seem to have a last name) to find and help us. Or maybe Shaeria is after Ilithrane for a different reason and convinces us to bring her along.

...or maybe Elodeir just finds her so attractive he invites her along to chase after a necromancer and her entourage.


Bethany: In a post made by DM Mike on Thu 23 Nov 2006, just before we all go into the Blue Drake:
DM Mike:
OOC: We'll say Bethany is outside with Denira.

So you can just pick up with us coming outside after the card game. <grin>

Re: Moving things along...or not
Not that this matters alot.

Dj's dad, my gf of going on 6 years, just went into the hospital.  They dont think he will make it the night and the chance of hmi living till thursday is even slimmer.  I may not be posting much over the next few days to try to keep her spirits up a bit.  I hope you can understand this and for that reason, IF i do post i will do my best to keep it in good taste.  But i just wanted to let you know that my posting may be delayed for this reason.  It is nice in a way that our posting rate in this game is slow anyway and for that i shouldnt miss alot.

Thank you for understanding.

Re: Moving things along...or not
Lots to cover!

Bethany:  Prayers to you and yours.  Trying times measure us in ways we never want, but we become stronger once they are over.

My DMing the region:  I have handed over the RoA One-Shot Adventures region over, and the Savage Species region has just entered Taverns-mode, so they do not need me there too often.  Waterdeep is on-hold right now, and Moonsea is between adventures.  I think DM Kool and another new DM are going to co-DM that region on their own.

I would love to keep DMing this region, so if you'll have me...

Moving on:  Denira left the group, her strict morality forcing her to take action on the poisoning of the dwarf, who she managed to cure pretty well.  With nothing left to do, Bethany met the group as the "poker" game was finishing up.

Shaeria Moonshadow sat through the game, followed along as well as she chould, and talked to the players and got a feeling that the PCs are on the side of good, while the NPCs are a bit shady.

She joins the PCs and while she is the newcomer, she seems to be fitting in well so far.

RL Update

Well gramps is stable but the kids and grandma are sick so they wont be releasing him till they are better.

Here is the story (from the docs point of view) Being as sick as he already was, he finally made it to the bathroom on his own for the first time in a few weeks.  They found him in the bathroom a bit later hitting his head on the sink.  To let you know, the bathroom is very small.  But the docs said the strain to walk from the bedroom to the bathroom was such a hard strain on his heart and lungs that he went into acoma.  Stopped breathing and was soon rushed to the hospital.  After 12 hours of being in this awake type acoma he came out and said he saw white walls, so he knew he wasnt in the waiting room for hell.  So at least he sence of humor is still intact.

Re: Moving things along...or not
OH ha ha ha ha.  I almost forgot to laugh.  Its kinda personal.  I hate the man, but for my gf's sake and the kids sake since they love him.  I pretend to tolerate him.  I refuse to visit him, I refuse to go to any family get togethers due to him, and honestly (i know this sounds cold) but i dont care if he kicks it.

The man last year before he got sick decided to take my self and my oldest boy out into the shed.  Being drunk (like normal after work) he decided to tell me if I have any doubts about the kids being mine (mind you i dont) that I would be thinking my oldest wasnt my blood.  Now him saying that drunk would be one thing, but to say it to me while my kid sat on my lap while he was drunk was stepping over the line.  My comment to him "If you werent such a old drunk, and my boy wasnt here, I would kick your @$$ for talking like that to me"

I left the house, and have yet to return his calls (from grandma who i adore) or visit him in the hospital.  Suposedly he is sorry for saying it.  But he is not man enough to stop by or call me himself and say it, then he truely is sorry.

*grin* Sorry, just had to clear that up.  For some reason you saying that kinda urked me.  Again Mike I am sorry for saying all that.  But we all have people in one way or another we dislike right?  As far as my family, my two boys and my self are the only ones alive, so no, lol, my grandpa or anyone befor me can honestly have a sence of humor.  If they do its probly sending those skeeters to people to annoy just before they are slapped and flattened on your arms.

Re: Moving things along...or not
Just to be fair, if I was able to post several times a week, I would ask Bethany's player when he/she wants the attack to go off.

But to move the game along, we will have the arrow attack go off at the second she gets a clean shot at the man's throat.

This may be a bit more cold-blooded than you'd like, and I assure you that the man's young pregnant wife and three little children will be well-cared for.

The eldest son of the man will grow up hating all women archers and will one da be resonsible for the deaths of many people, and his twin daughters will grow up to be prostitutes, making a good living doing a weird "mirror" act in Westgate, but hey, nothing big.

Drake raises his hand in objection :O -(Don't shoot)

Drake should be by Amy when she goes down, as a guard.  He has the best initiative modifier and has almost twice as many HP as anyone else and better AC.

You should take him up on this offer, because he doesn't usually offer to take the front line when there is obvious danger

If there are objections to that, he will take the back to protect the rear :)

Re: Moving things along...or not
For Christmas, every PC in RoA got one free Natural 20 to be used at any time they'd choose.  The only condition was, as far as I remember, that if you use it for an attack roll, while it's still an automatic hit, it doesn't threaten a critical.  It was DM Mike who announced it, so he can probably tell you guys more about it than I could.  :-)

Re: Moving things along...or not
*Wags finger as he "speaks"*

See, it pays to go over and read the posts in RoA OOC Forum now and then!

======================

The free 20 was given as a Christmas gift to all players in RoA.

If I recall, ALL of your PCs can use ONE FREE NATURAL 20!

You have to declare using it when you use it, it is NOT a re-roll, and if used for an attack roll, it IS NOT a critical, nor can it be used in the "confirm critical" check.

Other than that, it can be used for a skill check or a To Hit roll or a saving throw.

So far as I know, ONLY Elodeir has used his.

Bethany may have (did you, Bethany?)

Have I have a nat 20 since x-mas this past year?  If so it was rolled with the dice roller.  I really like the way you run your games as well Mike, but I am in all reality still new to this town and then to go to a new city would be hard on Bethany for her class, being it is a bigger city and all with a good hatred for humans, I might do a bit pourly there.

Move to Waterdeep?! Holy cats! That sounds great. Count me in! Although I do worry a little about operating in a group that big. It doesn't do me a lot of good to be disguised if everyone around me always looks the same.

DM Mike, I've said before that I thought you were overworked. I'm glad you've come up with a way to manage this stuff. Are the PCs in the Waterdeep group at the same level as we are?

No, they're higher level.  But I think Mike can handle that.  And since we'll get more XPs for combat than they will it will even out a bit and eventually not matter all that much.

And you could always buy all of us one of those nifty little hats.  :p

Re: Moving things along...or not
Hey Shaeria, you know that’s not a half bad idea. I’ll definitely have to save up some coin for that unless we come across someone who can Craft Wondrous Items For Half Price.

By the way, does anyone know why there is a Disguise Self spell but not a Disguise Other spell? Maybe I could use Silent Image or Minor Image to achieve the same effect.

Well, there are spells that disguises an entire group, I think. . .

http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/seeming.htm - as Disguise Self, but for one creature per two levels.

Completely and totally valid statement.  You still have to earn every other level, and since PbP does take so long I actually find it a bit more rewarding instead of NEVER getting to level at all.

I haven't yet scrutinized this statement for its validity. I'll just take you at your word.

The way it works, is that every month, you get a set amount of DM XPs based on the amount of regions you run as a DM.  Then, you can use those XPs on every other level-up (so, if your character starts at level 3, you can buy him up to level 4, play to level 5, then buy him to level 6, etc.).  This is very helpful if you're a low-level character in a region of established characters, I think.  It can also be used for other things, such as getting magical items for your characters.

In the end, however, it is always subject to DM approval, naturally.

I think it's a good way to reward DMs for their hard work that goes into running things here - as a DM of three RoA regions myself, I know what I'm talking about, there.  :p

And, if you've got the time/interest for it, I'd very much suggest joining the ranks of RoA DMs - if your roleplaying here is anything to go by, I think you'd make for a great DM, personally.

Actually I have thought about it. But the prospect scares me. I've tried to DM once before. It was a train wreck! I have had a few compliments on my skills as a player so I've stuck with that and actually am involved in...several games right now. Three here in RoA and four others. I guess if any of those collapse I could give DMing a try again...maybe...possibly...

If I can do it, you can do it.  :p  RoA would be a great place to try again though.  You can have a co-DM or help another DM to 'learn the ropes' until you're ready to branch out on your own.  Plus we have a lounge where we can bounce ideas off each other, ask for advice, etc.  Between Annihilator, BadCatMan and Vallah (three of the more frequent advice-givers that I've noticed) you really won't be able to go wrong.  So take your time, but when you're ready let us know and we'll see if we can't get you comfortable DMing some fabulous region somewhere.  :)

Just a few hours ago, I received an email from the former DM Fido (we've been keeping in touch somewhat since he left RPoL), discussing the current DM-situation in RoA, and here's what he had to said. . .

DM Fido:
And if the guy who plays Amylarn (I think that's the one) in Dragon Coast isn't a DM yet, he needs to be.  He's a great player.

Re: Moving things along...or not
I was going to say the exact same thing, BCM!

Once you get started, everything just kind of flows.  Not forcing the PCs to do what you want actually gives you more to work with and makes your job a lot easier as far as the story goes.  In my opinion, at least.

And premade adventures help a lot.  I generally use them for ideas, taking what I like and changing what I don't or what doesn't fit and such.  I've got lots of them so maybe soon I could find the time to scan some in for you if you'd like to look them over.  Plus used book stores in your area might have them really cheap.  I never pay more than $3 for mine.

And I trust Fido's opinion.  If he says you need to be a DM, then he's right.

Oh, Elodeir, please give him a hug for me, by the way, and tell him I miss him and all that good stuff.  Hopefully I'll have time to email him soon.  Thank you, darling.  :)  *hugs*

I understand about Bethany not fitting in too well in Waterdeep or Skullport.

If I could, I would keep running the 2 regions, but it is not fair to any players to have so slow-a-posting a DM.

----------------

The X-Mas gifts are unique each year.  They have ranged from free 20's to free magic items to free magic items, and they are always posted over in the RoA OOC Forum.  DMs may make note of them in their regional OOC threads, but not always.

Someone has already answered the level question.

There are only 2-3 active PCs in the Waterdeep region at present, so the group will not be that much bigger.

Heck, THIS is a pre-made adventure!

I changed the place names, the NPC names, but other than that, this is pretty much going as the adventure was written in Dugeon magazine.

Since you are such a strong role-player, Amylarn, you could DM a region where RPing is more used than combat.  So long as the players coming into the region know that up-front and create PCs with that expectation, there should be no problem.

And we DMs help each other out all the time over in the DM's Lounge forum.

Re: Moving things along...or not
My gosh, it looks like I am down to 2 active players over in Waterdeep!!!

I started a looooonnnng and very involved plot there, and so long as i could post 4-5 times weekly, it ran well.

But once work kicked in for me the momentum really slowed, and so I lost players due to that.  I also lost a player there (and RoA lost a good DM) to real life concerns.

So it seems weird to shift most of you from Dragon Coast to Waterdeep.

The reason I want to do that is that I have more support material for Waterdeep than I do the Dragon Coast, and many of my NPCs and businesses there are ones I have used since the days of 1st edition AD&D!  It is simply easier for me to come up with things for Waterdeep and Skullport than for the DC.

The way things are going, both regions may wrap up their adventures pretty much at the same time, which would be cool.

That was my nastiest Crit EVER!


Not my nastiest roll for damage, though.

In the Star Wars RPG from West End Games, you had one dice in your pool of dice called the Force Die.  When you rolled a 6 on it, you kept rolling and added the results.

An NPC baddie was attacking with, of all things, a laser scalpel (he was an evil doctor) and I kept getting "6" on the Force Die.  The doctor almost took out a Wookie with the dang scalpel, which only did like 2d6 of damage, normally.  Ended up doing something like 40-ish points of damage!

EDIT: I'd like to see how much damage that potion heals before taking my turn if that's okay.  If Shaeria sees that he is much better then she won't heal anymore at the moment and instead attack or help somebody else.

So, random question. . .  if you could pick any one song as the 'theme song' of your character, which song would you pick?

For Elodeir, I'd go with 'A Dazzling Display Of Talent' by Turbonegro, from the album Ass Cobra - though I expect most here will never have heard of the song, the album, or even the band.  :p

Bad news to those wishing to stay in the Dragon Coast:

It looks like this region will be closing down after our adventure is done.  It will be shut down until a new DM can be found.

RoA has lost some DMs of late, and I have to give up 2 of my regions, DC being one of them.

I feel guilty about this, but I can't help it.

Sorry, and those moving to other regions will have NO Day Units taken off their sheets.

Re: Moving things along...or not
That's why I was asking.  I'm saving a slot in Icewind Dale if you want it.  I mentioned taking on a few more in the lounge, and Mike suggested you.  If you're interested, it's in RoA 5.  I'm not posting very quickly now (as I'm sure you know from your game :p) what with school and the kids' health, but now would be a good time to join up there since I've got an easy way to ease in new PCs (three others are starting because a couple DMs just had to leave RoA).

Re: Moving things along...or not
I've downloaded even more than the ones you've sent me.  I have to get used to your music, after all.  :p  *giggles*

Here's Shaeria's song.  A love song for her god, of course.  :p  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Wp_pCJSAqY

(Seriously, I LOVE this song.  The guy - Mac Powell - has a great voice, and the girl - Jennifer Knapp has a unique sound that I like for her music.  And it's just plain GREAT to sing along to.  I so need a guy singer that I could sing duets with!  I'm not much for solos really.)

Re: Moving things along...or not
I'm really sorry, Bethany!  If I could, I would keep running ALL my regions in RoA as well as pick up some other favorite places like Sword Coast South (a great region that DM Bad Cat Man is running, and may need a PC or two) and Underdark.

Yes, the Icewind Dale region is a good choice, if you can stand the constant cold!  I would even provide some extra XPs since you are being forced out of this region for no fault of your own and finding a hard fit in other regions.

The rest of you schlubs will be rewarded enough by my golden DMing, of course!  ;)

Re: OOC discussion
Elodeir Nightjewel:
So, random question. . .  if you could pick any one song as the 'theme song' of your character, which song would you pick?


That's kind of a tough one. At first glance I might pick "Who are You" by The Who, but if you actually listen to the lyrics it doesn't work for me at all.

For dramatic purposes I'd choose the theme from movie "The Saint" (The movie theme is quite different from the original TV series theme.)

http://revjim.freeshell.org/saintmov.mid

If I had to choose an actual song it might be "Suicide Blonde" by INXS.

Re: OOC discussion
We're nearing the end of this encounter and the adventure.

It looks like another DM may be taking over this region soon, so if any of you would like to stay here and play, there will be an opportunity.

Then again, if you wish to stay here AND play in Waterdeep, I will have some room for new PCs there, too.

In other words, you can play in BOTH regions, but will have to make a new PC for one or the other region.

Keep looking here for details once the new DM situation is more firm.

This weekend, I'll be going away, with no internet access.  Then, next week, I've got two exams, so probably no posting from me then, either.  Next weekend, I've got another exam to study for, and Monday the 4th of June, I'll be busy taking that exam.  So, it'll probably be a good idea to NPC me from this Friday to Tuesday the 5th.

I'll have an IC post up a bit later today, hopefully, I'm going to post in the regions I run myself around RoA before that, though.

You WILL get some bonus XPs and treasure/items for being a good sport.

Things are in flux in Waterdeep...  Not sure how I want to go with that region right now.  Not even sure which PCs are still there (since two of their players are even slower than I am to post!

But yes, goodies will be handed out for all!

Re: OOC discussion
Whew!

The magic items and other loot are listed.  I padded what was in the stash to reflect your "bonus" items as promised as we move to Waterdeep.

You can split things up how you like in the in-game thread and use money to buy items at prices as listed in the DMG or the PH.  You can also use any of the RoA-approved sourcebooks listed over in the RoA OOC Forum.  If I do not know the item, you may have to provide me with rules for it.

Simply take the GPs off your PC sheet and add the item purchased.

Gems/jewelry/etc. can be sold at the GP price I listed after the item in the loot list.

==================

ALL PCs get 10 day units!   Add them to your sheet.

=================


I want ALL ACTIVE PCs to post at least once more in the game thread, listing their intention (to go to Waterdeep or to stay here and await the new DM to take over or to move on to another region).


Check out the XP thread for your end-of-adventure "XPs" and the final encounter XPs.

Re: OOC discussion
So we know the true way of dividing up our treasure who are we counting?  I know regular posters here recently for the fight was Drake, Amylarn, and My self.  Assisting us was Shaeria, Elodeir.  Thats still 5 people to divide amongst.

500gp
+2 Longsword
MW Short sword
MW Light Crossbow / 20 bolts
Oil of Barkskin +2

3 continual light stones
Wand of swarms (bees 20x20 area) 8 charges
Potion: Cure Serious Wounds
Potion: Delay Poison
Potion: Remove Disease
Potion: Neutralize Poison.
Gems: 1000g value
250g
Necklace: 50g
Ruby Ring: 100g
Bracelet: 30g
Bracelet: 30g

These are all our items. For sure selling gems and jewelry and coins we have 1960g. 392g each.  Then the other magical and mundane items to divi up.  If DM Mike could give us a value on the wand that would be a great help.  I would like to purchase the house I mentioned in the character thread.  The sword would be nice as well, but I bet drake could use it and he has been here more then I have.  But I just figured I would pop it up here to see what we all do.

Re: OOC discussion
I don't even know if I understand the day units.

Drake is most intersted in the +2 sword, of course,  He is willing to offer up his own masterwork longsword, should someone need a better than average sword to boost their performance.

He is also keen on some curing potion, as he finds himeself getting injured more than he would like.

The rest is of little interest and he will take what is offered,  some money will be a great benefit as well, since Drake lives job to job. Again, as we see fit to split it up.


With the XP move, not only did Drake advance a level, as designed, but is only 320 XP from going up another one.

Re: OOC discussion
+2 Longsword (1157g 5s if using the selling value and taking masterwork and sword costs into effect)(Claimed)
MW Short sword (155g selling value at 1/2)
MW Light Crossbow / 20 bolts (168g selling value at 1/2)
Oil of Barkskin +2 (150g selling value at 1/2)

3 continual light stones (assuming its like a everburning torch, a torch is 100g, so should we assume 50g each selling value at 1/2)
Wand of swarms? (bees 20x20 area) 8 charges (unknown selling value)
Potion: Cure Serious Wounds (375g selling value at 1/2)(Claimed)
Potion: Delay Poison (150g selling value at 1/2)(Claimed by new group)
Potion: Remove Disease (375g selling value at 1/2)(Claimed by new group)
Potion: Neutralize Poison. (375g selling value at 1/2)(Claimed by new group)

MW Longsword (157g 5s selling value at 1/2)(trade-in?)

Drake: +2 Longsword, traded MW Longsword in, Potion of CSW

I think we should wait on Amy, and Shaeria before selling the rest of the stuff and splitting the $.

Shaeria would be more than happy to hold the potions for the group, minus Bethany, as they go to Waterdeep.  As the group's healer she can administer them when necessary, but wouldn't be hers.  Somebody else can feel free to do that if they desire, though.  Just trying to be helpful.

But she doesn't need anything from the list for herself or anything.

I'll say they are A BONUS.  Do not forget to add the 5 per level attained plus the 5 as Bethany states above.

Re: OOC discussion
Drake Debonn:

There should be a thread devoted to explaining them over in RoA OOC Forum.  If not, they should be explained somewhere or other in the player's information in the OOC Forum.

In a nutshell, you use them to represent things like training, research, rest and relaxation, item creation, and so on.  Some DMs use day units to reflect travel to far and wide places (in an adventure or especially when a player and his/her PC moves from one region to another in mid-adventure).

If your PC is attaining a new class, creating some item, learning some feat that is something of a stretch (a PC in a forest area learning feats having to do with the sea, for instance), etc., see ow many day units your DM will ask you to burn or spend for doing those things.

Stored day units never go away, so if you are planning on something big, save them up.

Costs are usually left up to the DM.  If there is a doubt, we DMs talk about it in the DM's Lounge and come up with a reasonable amount to "charge".

Re: OOC discussion
I should have given out a scroll or two in the loot.  That might have helped Elodeir get some booty.

We'll say there was a bone scrolltube that had two arcane spells written on thin pieces of vellum within.  Only Elodeir showed interest in them, so he got them.  Fair?

=======================

Damion is out of the game until 6/17 or so, so we should await his return before deciding on the house (unless all the rest of you have chimed in wanting to buy it) and the split in items that he may be able to use.

FROM DM:

Oh man, now it's REALLY gettng bad!  I would mix up PCs who had the same names (do you know many Drakes we have in RoA?  And Damion comes in at a close second!) or had the same portraits, but there is NO excuse for me mixing Amy up with Damion!

Okay, I skimmed over the game thread since I saw a note that people are waiting for me so I'll rush a quick post here. as far as traeasure is concerend I'd like the wand of swarms and some of the muundane jewerly. I want to keep the jewerely, not sell it.

I saw a mention of dust a appearance in the game thread. I'm not claiming it for myself but I didn't see it listed here.

I like the continual light stones as well and if no one else wants them I'll take 'em. Or maybe I'll take one and 2 otehrs can have one each.

I currently have an everburning torch, but would like to swap it for a light stone.  It would be more workable in the future and not as bulky.  Maybe I will get it mounted on my shield or armor or something.

You can either add items of yours to the loot pile (in case another PC wants it) or trade it in for half the list price in the PH or DMG (or whatever sourcebook) and get some cash for the traded item(s).

Merchants in this town have a lot, since they are a port on a busy shipping lane.  And they look for a lot, since a good deal of travel goes through all the time.

Well I just wanted the $ for buying the house, so when everyone agrees on what they want, I will take my share and go to my new region.

Re: OOC discussion
Mike, is the light stone exactly the same other than stone vs. torch?  If so, would I be able to have it made into a necklace or brooch or have it somehow inlaid into one point of the crescent moon on my holy symbol?  That would be better than having a torch strapped to my back.

Re: OOC discussion
They discharged my brother from the hospital yesterday. He had some sort of infection in his small intestine. They gave him antibiotics which was probably enought but they made him really nausious and things got worse instead of better for a few days. But he's all recovered now.

Re: OOC discussion
If there are enough coins, either before or after selling, Drake could use 75-100 gp to live on.

He doesn't want jewelry or gems, he wants coins.

All looks good to me. Thanks for the organization.

Re: OOC discussion
That means we have several unclaimed items.

MW Short Sword
MW Light Crossbow
Oil of Barkskin +2
Dust of apperance

And a couple of extras donated by Drake.
MW Longsword
Everburning torch

If no one wants them I'll happily claim the crossbow, barkskin oil, and the dust of apperance. Though if I do I'll go far over my fair share of the overall loot. I suppose I should just take my share and we can sell off the rest. Any last minute comments before we finish up with the treasure?

Except for my possible trade depending on Mike's answer, I have no need of anything else.  But do let me know if, as the 'healer,' I will be carrying the community health potions so I can mark them down.

23:39, Yesterday: Amylarn rolled 1 using 1d6. HP for level 5.

You know, that would be pretty bad, if we didn't reroll 1s for HP here in RoA. . .  ;-)

It shines the same as a torch.

You can get one of the stones (each about the size of a man's thunbnail) carved and set into a ring/necklace/jewelry for a cost of about 30 GPs.  Nothing TOO fancy or rich here, of course.

A lid and clasp to cover the stone added onto whatever you get it made into costs another 5 GPs.

Don't forget you can sell whatever you do not want, too.

We need to clear out of here soon.  DM Wolf looks almost ready to start with his new group.
I will get something set up in Waterdeep for you soon.

If you do not have access to RoA Adventures 1, go RTJ with a copy of your PC sheet.

If you do not have access to the Watedeep group (group 1), please send me a PM there in RoA 1 and send me your PC sheet.

Thanks!

Re: OOC discussion
I revised my estimation of the group's treasure haul. I think I must have gone a little overboard with trying to be too accurate. <shrugs> At any rate, I did a quick check in the SRD and found that Summon Swarm spell is a 2nd level spell for wizards. The estimated cost for a rod is:

Spell level X caster level X 750 GP.
So the Rod of Bees would be 2 X 3 X 750 = 4500.

But this one only has 8 charges instead of 50. That would make its value about 720 GP. Sold at half value would make it 360 GP...assuming I did that math right.

We still have no idea the value of Elodeir's spell scrolls. For the math I did above, I ASSUMED both scrolls would be 2nd level arcane spells. (But you know what assuming does right?) Most of those 2nd level arcane spells cost 150 GP each to buy. Two would be 300 GP. Sold at half value would be 150 GP.
Elodeir can you fill us in on the actual GP value? Or does anyone really care how we figure this out?

I will be out of town part of this coming weekend, so look for new Waterdeep threads to come for you folks sometime early next week.

Amylarn gets 100 extra XPs for her able help with the treasure!

I would say the estimates for the rod is fair and accurate.

The spells were both second level for those scrolls.

BETHANY:

I hope those wounds heal well!

Take care, and I will let you envision the estate as you like.

It has two main floors, with a large basement and several small outbuildings, mainly for the "help".
