Re: Anniversary
Sorry to hear about your troubles guys. I'll just add my delay apology here as well. :) Just been a little burnt out lately, too long of days and too little of sleep for too long leaves me in a very non RPOL state. As always, never fear, my occasional (frequent?) delays are frustrating to be sure, but I'll always be back. Going to update now.

Re: Anniversary
Hey Lonhro - you were adjacent to orc 1 so your action will provoke and AoO. I'm sure you can take the potential hit but I just thought I'd point it out.

Re: Anniversary
Can I ask which action will provoke an AoO?

EDIT: You're right. My attack wil just focus on orc 1.

Thanks DM :)

Re: Anniversary
Very cool new feature has been added in the recent RPOL upgrade.

Language Groups:

[Language unknown:  Un th hisessrea]

[Language unknown:  Ivech es Toesom]

[Language unknown:  Llpo un Osaiader]

[Language unknown:  Atver o Outrat'thuder]

[Language unknown:  Te un Mesece]

[Language unknown:  Oun ic Weonpase]


[Language unknown:  Fisti ic Resintentsom]

[Language unknown:  Elri ho Nteectlat]

I actually have no idea how that all looks to each of you because none of the games I play in have used this function yet. But as I understand it you should all be able to read you the things I typed in languages your characters speak and the languages you don't should appear as gibberish.

Re: Anniversary
Hey DM, I'm just looking at my xp. I know we are due to get some now for that battle we have only just finished, but I'm wondering if I have missed some.

According to my records, I have 3,145 xp, and the last time I received any xp of any sort was January 7, nine months ago.

Does that sound right? I would have thought I should have gotten some xp SOMEWHERE in that time so maybe I've missed some.

All I'm able to read is common, although technically Ealga can't even read that.

Re: Anniversary
I'm not sure Lonhro, I keep meaning to do an XP update be keep putting it off. I will try and get back to you on that today.

I've just realized I shouldn't have even made a common language group as there would never be a need to use it unless the group had a PC who didn't speak common somehow. All well.

To post in a specific langauge (again, don't bother using the common language group, that's just redundant) use the "insert a pricate line to" drop down box. There are three sections there now. Use the last one "the language group" section.
The code for it is [Language Elven: Type your message here]

Elven should be changed to whatever langauge is required. The languages have to be defined by the GM for the game before it works though. So far I've added Elven, Halfling, Dwarven, Celestial, Draconic, Goblin, Infernal and Orcish and will add more as needed.

XP
Ok, I went back and checked and here's the deal. Lonhro your XP total seems correct, but your date is wrong. On Jan. 7th your total was 2350xp. It went up to 3145 on March 7th. Unfortunately no, I have not given out any XP since then.

So, after checking through all the threads I've come up with 1713xp that I owe each of you which brings your total xp up to 4858xp.

Sorry its not a level, but you are progressing at just abuot the perfect rate as for the campaign itself. I'll try and keep the pace going faster so that you can actually get through things more quickly.

EDIT: In case you were wondering the last XP award came in msg #567 of this OOC thread.

Re: Anniversary
 Hmm speaking from a rogues point of view he would have to say the rust dust could be handy for entering a locked position that was beyond his skills to open, then he might like the flash pellets for a distraction. I thought of the tanglefoot bags but if i remember correctly they are fairly heavy for their size so will pass on them.

 The cure light scroll could go into the party treasury for emergency need. The other gear?, still up for thought or who ever might be able to use it.

Okay, well I will put all of it into the kitty thread, but if someone in this OOC thread claims something for their personal backpack then I'll just remove it :)

Re: Anniversary
I can take the scroll, and we could use the cure light wounds on anyone wounded right now. Using scrolls in combat is tricky.  Not something I like to do.  Protection from good is useless to us, and the command spell is not a spell I like to use.  To easily saved.

Re: Anniversary
Oops, I think the door you mean is the storeroom with the dead trog in it that you did check out. I forgot to lift the "fog of war" on that room. I will do so on the next iteration.

I think DM is struggling with Rpol lethargy at the moment. Hopefully after a guilt-ridden break from it he will be back refreshed and ready to rock :)

Taking a two week Hiatus.
Pretty much right Lonhro - and trust me it is guilt ridden. Really: I'm Catholic we do guilt right. The generic notice follows. I'd just like to say that this group in particular I want to come back to right. This would be the last game I ever drop - you're my number 1 game.

Hey all,

As is obvious I haven't been around (again). Fact is I just can't find the drive or time to come on and do the RPOL GMing thing. Mostly it's been a lot of personal stress. Partly it's been the fact that very little time in my life lately has been spent on just me. Whether it be relaxing or personal projects. I really enjoy GMing and the games I have on RPOL but I'd like to not feel like I'm facing responsibilities 100% of the time, even in my supposedly 'free time'. So what I'm going to do is take an official 2 week hiatus. I'm putting a specific time frame on this because I don't want to just leave the games hanging until the ambiguous sometime. After two weeks I'm going to get back on here and see what's what and try and get everything rolling again. I know I took a month long vacation not too long ago but that wasn't this. Hopefully in the next two weeks I'm going to get better control of my schedule and sleep habits, get caught up on marking for my classes and have my end of semester and exam time all prepped up so the job rolls smoothly. Etc. I hope everyone will be around when I get back - I've been gaming online with many of you for a long time right now and it is my hope to continue that.  But I'd like to try and do something so that it will continue well. Not, the way it has been.

Caninrok. (Jeff)

Re: Taking a two week Hiatus.
Personally for me, I will welcome this, but it would've been better two weeks ago. I got handled the additional duty to help clear a backlog of depot cases, and it took me until now to get caught up.  Day to day can be bad, but there now a chance each day to check in, and post.  I can wait for 2 weeks. I'll pop in now then I hope.
