Gilad's all set, and now readier than ever to viciously mock his opponents!

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
So, waiting on Vethryn's player to check in. Did you know Vethryn is married to the Northern Colossus? To coin a phrase, it's complicated. But that entity will certainly intervene to pull Vethryn out of... what's about to happen. The plan was, Vethryn's player would be able to bring in a new PC as the Colossus pulls a switcheroo.

I will be talking with you all in PMs about upgrading your magic items. We're coming up to Christmas now and RL is pretty busy, so we'll be taking a more leisurely pace for the next couple of weeks :)

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Vethryn hasn't logged in for over a month, going to give the slot to someone else. Expect the first in-game post between Christmas and New Year.

To those of you I haven't contacted yet about magic items - your time will shortly come :)

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Folks, having finally got around to checking my 13th Age book to see what year it is, I am embarrassed to say I can't find it. Can anyone help me out with the year, assuming the "standard setting"...

It kinda doesn't matter. The key is whether this is the same year that they normally are in, or whether time travel has occurred. You can make up whatever numbers you want :-)

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
OK, before I post again, what is everyone doing? Sticking with Gilad and heading back to the Emporium, or splitting up to do different stuff. Please answer in character :)

I'm with Gilad after I'm done getting the guards to answer my question.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
I was going to move things over to the House of Mirrors today, but looking at the posts in-game it's not clear to me that's necessarily where you want to go. Some more in-character discussion so I know where you're off to next please :)

Sigmund:
Sigmund continues to stare coolly at the man. "How does one speak to the Owner?"


Sigmund, you have (probably) already met him - the shopkeeper in the Emporium. From post 52:

The Empire:
"Well sir, Practical Magic is what gives us our light, our food, our wonderful ornaments. The emporium is open all hours, why not go in and meet the Owner himself. He can tell you all about it, and perhaps teach you a few simple knots".

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Folks, you may have noticed that this adventure, at the moment, is a little more talky than the first two. I hope it's to everyone's taste and the people not posting aren't getting bored!

One thing we can do is, like in recent posts, let two or more people ask questions then post a multi-answer. It looks a bit odd, but you can sort out the questions and answers in your head :) So feel free to chime in!

Also, at some point it might make sense to split into two or more groups to cover more ground. I know, don't split the party and all that, but in this case I'll be happy to.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Speaking for myself, I'm thoroughly enjoying the current adventure!

That said, if the rest of the group would prefer something more action-packed, I'm fine with that.

This is fun! Poor Sigmund's going nuts, but I'm enjoying the idea and the story :-)

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
Thanks for the positive feedback folks :) Don't want to interrupt your deliberations in-game, but one question:

Gilad Rott:
As they depart...

Is that depart as in "move to the next room and find some seats in a quit corner" or depart as in "leave the House and Mirrors and talk on the street"?

Also
Oclur:
"Food? That's it?"

Wasn't sure if that was a rhetorical question, but can answer that in the Appendix thread if it wasn't :)

We're talking on the street as privately as we can.

Re: Meta-game & Rules Discussion
OK, have I got this right: Gilad is heading back to the Emporium to learn some braids and distract the Owner while Vander and Zanne find another way in to snoop around. Sigmund is looking for someone to talk to and Shakru is waiting outside the Emporium in case backup is needed. Oclur, what about you?

Also, we need to talk about Durum: his player PMed me a few weeks back, he sadly has health issues and can't rejoin the game. There are three ways to handle it:

1) He never arrived, same as Vethryn. Maybe the High Druid pulled him out as a reward for being the prime mover in saving the High Ark.

2) He's been here all along, strangely silent. I will NPC him in a minimalist way.

3) I try and recruit a new player. Not ideal at this stage in the game I feel.

Which option do you folks like?
