Re: Moving things along...or not
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
Just wondering if i rejoin the group, I left without telling anyone due to my net and pc both going down many months ago (blasted laptops and tagteams of 2 and 3 year olds)

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. Itís 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.

Re: Moving things along...or not
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
That sounds good to me, My only concern being that I have not been around since the fight in the cemetary how do i go about just popping back in and being welcomed?  i dont want to just assume anything and would like the groups imput since our posting will be slower then most others, and this will help me out as far as how i should roleplay me being at the rendering plant

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
Are the guards in the doors or outside of the doors?  If they are outside can I or anyone else for that matter tell if they are human or what race?

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.

We all know that RL is more important than any RPG so of course you have our undedrstanding. Take your time and we'll be glad to have you back at 100% whenever you're ready.

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.

The guards are inside the shop.

They look human, but could be half-orc.  You never really saw their faces.

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.

A sense of humor is a great thing for anyone to have, and it's good to hear your grandfather's is still healthy and 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.

Sorry for the delay, all.

Work, snow, a new car (took three days to find one and then a deal I could afford to live with), etc.

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.

:)

(Just kidding.  He was a bad guy.)

They're human.

A lot of the NPCs you will meet in this small cisty are human.
